Hi Simon,

being new to Minim (coming from Twonky) I am really impressed: Very nice Server software! I like the approach for my classical music collection (5k albums).

I have two issues, which confuse me:

1. When selecting an album via Genre/ Classical/ Artists it displays later with correct title and album name in Chorus or Kinsky, BUT the artists displayed is actually the composer while the composer entry is empty. How to fix this?
2. In the MinimWatch properties one can select the index tags. Could I also add the sample rate and it if yes, which is the correct tag name for this?

Cheers, SMSWAP

This should work correctly with Kinsky and Chorus. For Kinsky, you need to set

Composer.displayRole={artist}

in the tagCustom property, and for Chorus you need to set

Composer.displayRole={author}

See this section for more information.

Thanks Simon! That was an easy one!
One more: How to add an alphabetical index to the composer list (genre/classical/composer) such as under genre/classical/AllArtist)?
