    Multi Library Set Up

    Hello,

    I'm having trouble setting up the multi library plugin. I have my music in a separate directory to my girlfriends - hers is imported using the itunes integration. I want to separate our 2 collections but have them both accessible from all squeezeboxes. I have set up all her music with her name as the comment tag, and tried to create two separate libraries - one including and one excluding that tag - but i always end up with 1 empty one. Any help is much appreciated. latest version of squeezebox server.

    Do you get any errors in the server.log file ?

    Can you post your library configuration files ?
    (They are found in the directory you have specified in "Settings/Plugins/Multi Library")

    Hello,

    Thanks for replying. I won't let me upload the xml files - but the details they contain I've copied and pasted below. I imagine that it's just I've configured things incorrectly!.

    Thanks for your help.

    1. I assume you have made a full Squeezebox Server rescan after you set the tags ?
    2. Look in the server.log after you have clicked the "Refresh libraries" link on bottom of Multi Library page. Do you get any errors in the log ?
    3. Try installing the "Database Query" plugin and goto "Extras/Database Query/Squeezebox Server Statistics" then look for a line "Number of songs with comment tags" and make sure it contains the correct number of songs with COMMENT tags. If it doesn't it means that your tags are incorrect.
    4. I think the search will be case sensitive, so make sure you have tagged the music with "Dan" and not with "DAN", "dan" or some other variant.
    5. You could try to set the "Check exclude comment for sub strings" and "Check include comment for sub strings" and see if it makes any difference.
