    For my classical music collection, ARTIST is the composer of a track. If there is a recital by, say a pianist of many composers, I use the pianist's name as ALBUM ARTIST, and also label each track with the composer of the track as the ARTIST. My problem is that (see attached) even if all tracks are by the same composer, if I also put in an ALBUM ARTIST, SBS only lists the album under the ALBUM ARTIST. How do I also get it listed under ARTIST? So, the above album is only listed under Takahashi, and not Feldman. I need both.

    How did you configure Settings/My Music? There you have some control
    over the artist categorization behaviour.

    I had use two separate lists

    I changed it to a single configurable list. Where is it configured?
    I think this fixed it.

    The "My Music" tab in settings. You can choose the single configurable list or not, and then enable or disable conductors, composers, etc in the list.

    It is still not right

    In the Web interface, now that I combined ARTISTS and ALBUM ARTISTS into one list, the list under Artists is correct. See below.

    But if I add "Artists" to the menu of my Transporters, it is not correct at all. I only get three of the items, and they are displayed multiple times.
