    LMs folder navigation

    All,

    I have been running Logitech Media Server under all of its names for many years. Recently, the Win7 computer running LMS died. I think the version was 7.9 or later. I have now installed version 8.2.1 on a Win10 computer. It runs fine.

    I do not prefer one change with the new LMS setup. When I explore my local disc collection under Music Folder, there is an additional level with the names: Library, Pictures, and Videos. I am not sure if this change is due to the new version of LMS, or due to changing from Win7 to Win10.

    Is there a method for removing this extra layer of navigation?

    FYI, I am blind and use the light menu skin. I have always preferred navigating my music using folder Hierarchy FOR genres rather than using tags embedded in the files.

    Thanks for any help,
    Tom Shults

    Please check your music folder settings. Make sure it really is pointing
    at your music folder only. And disable video/photo integration should
    that still be configured.

    Michael,

    I am pretty sure my music folder is set to the correct place. I even asked my wife (who is not blind) to look at that setting in my Basic Settings menu, just to be sure that something was not escaping my observation.

    Where can I "disable video/photo integration"? I have looked all over for such a setting.

    Many thanks,
    Tom

    I am still snooping about to find a fix for this issue. A day or so ago, I pasted the following text from an answer in the forums on my clip board.
    "LMS > Settings > Basic Settings > Media Folders (make sure to check the appropriate boxes for content type included in those folders)"

    I do not find any content type check boxes in this menu. Am I missing it?

    My folder in this menu happens to be:
    D:\AllData\SqueezeBox\Library

    Thanks for any help,
    Tom

    When you navigate to
    D:\AllData\SqueezeBox\Library on your PC what do you see?
    To disable content types there should be check boxes for music, video etc next to the folder name. Untick all boxes except music.

    Really?

    I thought the Video & Pictures check boxes had been removed a while back

    On 8.3 yes but I think 8.2.1 is being used. I don't know if they were also removed from that.

    I unsuccessfully tried to fix my music folder issue by selecting the properties of the library folder with Windows File Explorer, and selecting "optimize for music" in the customize tab. I also selected "apply to subfolders". Then I rescanned the library with LMS. There is no change.

    Could anyone straighten me out?
    Many thanks again!

    You still haven't told us what you see when you navigate to
    D:\AllData\SqueezeBox\Library
    on your PC
