Dianemo S: Logitech Media Server and tags problems
« on: April 16, 2013, 12:32:08 pm »
Hi,

I'm not sure to what extent this also applies for LMCE, but I'm having a lot of problems under Dianemo S that currently switched to Logitech Media Server as internal music system...

First of all, the main problem is that my collection is not properly tagged and I'm waiting for option to use it via Folder structure... But that's another story... I'm trying to tag my collection as much as possible correctly, but have problems...

I've tagged few folders with mp3, wav and flac files. Then I tried to use LMS to rescan library and encountered following problems :
1. LMS behaves strange when you do only "scan for new and changed" media files. It finds all files, but when it should end scan it waits there forever... I have to abort scan. What I've learned is that it's recomendable to do full rescan each time...

2. if I scan only specific folder then all tag data seem to appear correctly on LMS (I'm not doing anything on Dianemo yet)... But when I do rescan of whole library (all folders) then my data from specific folder don't appear anymore... There are few errors about incorrect tag values on some files, but I guess this shouldn't interfere with files that are correctly tagged... But obviously something is wrong...

Anyone with same or similar problems ? Any advice ?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

All audio library scanning of meta data is now done by LMS. Most users are using iTunes alongside LMS to purchase or rip audio tracks - but in fact you can use anything that correctly adds the id3 data to your audio tracks. Feedback to date seems very positive to date.

It could be that your id3 tag data is causing this problem - can you send us (Uplink or myself) some id3 data from a few tracks for us to look at?

All the best

Andrew,

is LMS taking care only of audio files? Somewhere between updates I got into empty Video file list if I set sort by filename... Also, I think that only a subset of files appear when I select by author... All views are empty...

Thanks in advance,

Bulek.

Yes it only applies to audio. Video still uses UpdateMedia.
