View Full Version : 7.7. Music library scan all messed up

2011-11-21, 13:36
Hi all

Something very odd is happening with 7.7. All has worked fine for years, up to and including 7.6.x, but 7.7 has gone loopy. Clicking an Artist in the GUI takes me to music completely unrelated to that artist. I've done a clear and rescan but the same happens.

If a picture paints a thousand words then please watch this short video.....

Heeeelppppppp :-)


PS Clearing the cache has not helped :-(

Interesting video! Not experienced this problem myself and for me 7.7 scanning is working properly whereas 7.6 messed up badly for me.

I once had issues like this with the database in the 7.5 era however. Turns out I had been fiddling around with the SQL settings and messed things up.

If you upgraded from 7.6, have you tried a *fresh* reinstall of 7.7? Uninstall, erase the "C:\Program Files\Squeezebox" directory to make sure all's gone, then reinstall 7.7.

Good luck!

PS: OOps, I see from the directory structure that you're running Linux rather than Windows.

Looks like it's pulling up a bunch of compilation albums. Is that every compilation album in your library, or just a part of them?

Actually, it's this bug:

Albums Not credited to Album Artist

The problem is that when you browse into the artist 'Art Garfunkel', he appears on a compilation album. That album should be with the artist 'Various Artists' beneath it. When you click the artist name 'Art Garfunkel' it takes you to 'Various Artists' albums, not 'Art Garfunkel' albums. It's linking to the correct place, but the artist name shown for the album is wrong. Then when you get to the album list, the breadcrumbs shown are also wrong, displaying the bad artist name.

Lots of little new bugs in 7.7 to go with all of the old unresolved 7.6 bugs.

Well spotted :-) Yes it does seem to be that bug.

I never experienced it in 7.6.x but it's certainly there now and it's quite a nuisance.
