    It looks like the Spotify "Genre and Mood" lists were being mistaken for tracks? Anyway, it works now, continuing with testing...

    My Music Search Results

    I make sure I am pulling the latest updates for the Slimserver and Spotty plugin library-integration branches...

    Using the material skin - "My Music," I do a search for an artist that I know I have an album for locally, and I also have one i saved on Spotify - and indeed both show up in my search results ... excellent.

    The problem is that when I select "More" for the album I know was found locally, the info displayed includes - "Source: Spotify" - which is not correct?

    I note that for the album found on Spotify, in addition to the "Source" field, there is also an "External ID" field, which is nice.

    I see the same.
    This is More at Album level in Material and in Default. More isn’t visible in iPeng at album level.

    The “Browse on Spotify” link under Artist isn’t visible in Material or iPeng

    But most of the time is spent in MAI's artist artwork lookup. If you had
    a local folder for the artwork (or a copy of images), that would be much
    faster. Only when MAI tries to find the images online it'll spend all
    that time searching. I bet the Pi was mostly idling during this time.

    I do have an artwork folder on the NAS for my production server but it isn’t writable by the Raspbian pi user as yet. I need to figure out how to do that without compromising the live server.

    Michael, I pulled your latest commit for Spotty - "Make integration with local music optional" and that brings to mind a question...

    Is it reasonable to add the option to exclude music services to the "My Music" Advanced Search feature? This way, even if music service collections have been merged, they could still be skipped if the user wants to do a search for things in his local library.

    Definitely something worth being added to the features-to-consider list :-).
