    Ignore CUE sheets?

    I store CUE sheets that reference multiple files in my flac directories to facilitate the burning of redbook CDs from those flac files. SlimServer appears to read these CUE sheets for the purpose of cataloging when it does a scan. This is usually apparent only when an album, artist, or track title is different in the CUE sheet than what is found in the files. For instance, an album named "Bookends (Legacy Edition)" within a CUE sheet, later retagged in the flac files to just "Bookends" results in two distinct albums showing up when browsing artists or albums. The one found by reading the CUE sheet is completely unplayable.

    Is there is a setting somewhere to direct SlimServer to ignore all CUE sheets?

    removing the referece to cue file types in types.conf should do it. then restart
    the server.

    Thanks. I think that will work fine.

    I notice that in types.conf the "Server File Type" of cue sheets is listed as "Playlist" and that additional playlists include m3u files. I also generate .m3u files as album playlists and, once again, store them within the album's directory. Does SlimServer also read these when scanning?

    Also, will types.conf be overwritten by installing a nightly build or will it be preserved by the Windows installer?

    yes, but they are handled differently, based on extension.

    unfortunately, it would be overwritten. There is support for
    custom-types.conf that wouldn't be overwritten, but that is really only
    useful for adding custom types.

    Slimserver doesn't actually work with cuesheets that reference
    multiple files. There should be an enhancement request to
    automatically ignore cuesheets that reference multiple files while
    leaving the DAO ones in tact.
