    Genres changes not picked up

    Hi, I've just changed the genres asigned to some of my music, since the old genres, picked up from CDDB were a bit of a mess. The old genres are still showing, together with associated songs, in the slimserver web view, despite re-scanning. Is there anything I can do about this apart from a full rescan or deleting and re-adding the songs?

    Make sure you don't have any id3v1 tags left in the file.

    Also worth checking if the file modification timestamps were updated when you changed the genres: some tagging tools will deliberately leave this unchanged, which means that slimserver won't know to rescan. Unless you do a "clear all and rescan", which is probably a good idea anyway.
