    Deezer

    I'm running 8.1.2 - 1613284909 and while the Deezer integration seems to be generally active, the lookup seems to be flaky and inconsistent:

    Main menu > All Artists > Die Drei ??? Kids yields 61 hits, of which 57 are local and 4 are on Deezer.
    Main menu > Deezer > Search Music > Search for Artists (Die drei ??? Kids) > Albums yields 56 hits
    Logging into Deezer with my browser and searching for "drei ??? kids" yields 93 albums

    I did a rescan of the online music which took a while, but the results did not change. I tried mostly with the material skin, but a quick check with the standard skin leads to the same results.

    I did not see anything striking in the logs, but there are not many messages and so perhaps the log level is wrong (can I increase it?)

    Only albums you flagged as favorites will be imported, not all albums by
    a favorite artist.

    Ah I see. Yes I guess that explains the behavior. With a Deezer family account all accounts registered at mysb.com are considered, right?

    Out of curiosity, why not include all albums of a favourite artist? Is this planned for implementation, perhaps as an option? For a use case like mine (audiobooks for kids) it would definitely make sense, and personally I think I'd also quite like that.re

    And another issue which was kind of buried in my post: when I search this artist's albums, the Deezer > Search Music > Artist .... lists only 56 albums. But right on deezer.com there are 93! When I search Deezer > Search Music > Title for any of the missing albums, it is correctly shown. Do you have any idea why that is happening?

    Yes, all accounts should be imported.

    There are a bunch of reasons. Eg. I don't like all hundreds of albums
    Frank Zappa ever recorded. Or there often are duplicates in the form of
    Remaster and Deluxe versions. What about EPs? Singles?

    It's something I've considered. But in the year that this feature has
    been out the request hasn't come up often. I believe for most users it
    would be overwhelming. But I do understand your use case. There are
    hundreds of albums for those "artists", and new ones added almost
    weekly... But browsing an artist online isn't that much farther away.

    My kids actually hardly ever go to My Music, but use online services
    almost exclusively. They'd even play music I have locally from a
    service, because that's what they're familiar with.

    Yeah, I suppose that would be awkward.

    So what exactly are they doing then? Basically I was looking for the easieast route
    for them to reach all albums of a particular (audiobook) artist, with only the knobs of
    the SB Radio at their disposal.

    That is the only reason why I hoped that perhaps the OMSI might be worth looking into.
    If there is a better way, we'll gladly take it. :-)
