Hi,

I have configured My Music to use the ID3-Tags for the thumbnail creation. But unfortunately it’s not using the tags within my listing of my albums. I have attached an image of my album listing & the Music Database configuration within the configuration utility.

My directory structure is the following. Take note all my MP3’s have album covers within the ID3-Tags.
z:\mp3\album artist – album name\song number song title.mp3

Maybe I’m missing something so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Also is there a way to have my song listings for every album to use the List Layout. Currently they are all listed using the Big Icon List Layout. I have attached an image of the Music Views configuration which I’m assuming is where I would configure this. My configuration currently has the Artists, Album Artists & Albums items within the View pull-down menu all set to List within the ViewAs column.

I also selected the button Update the database from the selected shares from Music Database within the configuration utility.

Again unless I’m missing something any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

    For the view you want use the following

    View Mode in MP (Press left arrow to get this menu) = Kiwi's View [ie NOT SHARES VIEW]

    MP Config for views

    Kiwi's View

    Selection - Operator - Restriction - Limit - View As - Sort By - Asc
    Album Artist - blank - blank - blank - List - Artist - [Tick]
    Album - blank - blank - blank -List - Album - [Tick]
    Track - blank - blank - blank - List - Track - [Tick]

    Could be that a sudden powercut corrupts the database, or give all your pcs a new ipadres, or several more things that can break up a running mediaportal setup. Without the logs however, I don't have a clue on what exactly is wrong...
