    It would be great if you could add a custom filter to sorting:

    HiFi = all music stored in F:\Music\FLAC\
    MidFi = all music stored in F:\Music\mp3\

    A workaround if you only want to see the FLAC albums in MediaPortal would be to not include the mp3 directory in the database scan, and just browse to it when needed as a share?

    I have about 50% of the files in each format, and about 20% overlapping, accustomed as they are arranged by artist, album, track, it would be convenient to add another division ie chose the album, but already there source (if more than one) and listen to the music itself. It is certainly possible that it be transferred to another directory, and hide from the media portal, but it adds manual labor and takes time.
    It's not difficult to add one more cut in music, or am I wrong?[DOUBLEPOST=1403613568][/DOUBLEPOST]
    I now like this:
    \\server\Music\MP3\ -> include in the database scan
    \\server\Music\Loseless\ -> include in the database scan
    \\server\Music\Book\ -> not include in the database scan
    \\server\Music\Baby\ -> not include in the database scan
    \\server\Music\Home\ -> not include in the database scan
    \\server\Music\Temp\ -> not include in the database scan

    And in MPTagThat you press CTRL-B :)

    But everyone can use the tool he likes.

    This is just a publicity screenshot, but the support of search databases and custom replacement in tags and file names still better. See what ideas may like.
