No Album Artists under "Artists & Album Artist" node #5485

Post by nohitter151 » Wed Mar 25, 2009 12:36 pm

1. Enable "Available music" filter
2. Look up an Album Artist that is not also an Artist name, i.e. "Various Artists"
3. Expand the "Artists & Album Artist" node
4. Note that "Various Artists" (and others) does not appear

I am unable to reproduce with 1228. I have a few artists that only appear as Album Artists (Various Artists is not one of them, oddly, ha) and they each show up under Artist & Album Artist. Anymore details to reproduce? Filters? Anything?

Ah, my apologies. I should have mentioned I have the "Available music" filter enabled. When I apply Filter (none), the album artists all appear as would be expected.

For completeness, my "Available music" criteria includes:
Match all of the following criteria-
Status is accessible
Genre doesn't equal Podcast

Nohitter,

I tried replicating this with build 1331 (not yet posted) and cannot.

When you start with a clean DB does the problem reccur?

p.s. if you can't reproduce with a clean DB, it might be worth submitting your DB for analysis

I started MM with a clean database and it persists -- Various Artists is not under the "Artist & Album Artist" node -- but again only with the "Available tracks" filter applied.

Here's a link to that clean DB, if needed: http://www.filedropper.com/mm_4

Nohitter,

I tried reproducing again but can't.

I tried downloading the db that you posted, but the link doesn't lead to any sort of download--am I missing something?

Thx.

btw, I also wonder if this could be related to http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=5484 .

Does switching filters and then back to 'Available Tracks' filter have any effect?

Sorry, for some reason filedropper has taken down all of my files -- frustrating to say the least...

Here is the file again: http://www.filedropper.com/mm

I tried that but there doesn't seem to be any difference.

It's very easy to reproduce, just make sure that the Album Artist doesn't exist as a normal Artist, otherwise you will still see it. I also see the reason to why this is happening.
