Hi all,

I am using mediaportal for a couple of years now and I am so happy with it :)
But one thing I would really like to have is the possibility to include the YEAR tag in the Album name (without changing the actual album tag in the mp3's).

Off course I know the year view and the possibility to change views. But what I don't know is how to configure a view to see all the albums from a certain artist sorted on year BUT also showing the year and the album name.

Maybe this can only be done in changing the skin files. But also then I don't know how...

So if anybody knows ...

Yeah im also missing this ability when browsing my music collection using filmstrip view, and it had been a great add to also se the release year
of the album when browsing.
It may be a way the skin developers can add this??? donno! Please make our music perfect :)
