better Multiple Artist/Genre support in LUMIN controller app
Hi simon,

At Linn DS forum, I posted my new LUMIN controller app. And your server is the best match!

Some mentioned a problem of multiple artist which a single artist name contain a "," and LUMIN app treat it as 2 artists.

http://forums.linn.co.uk/bb/showthread.p...#pid225663

Unlike a generic UPnP controller, LUMIN app does not simply browse a server tree. LUMIN will look for the "Album" container, then grab all the album detail in it. And build a local song database inside the app.

In this case, even though there are proper multiple pairs of artist metadata in a FLAC file, a UPnP server will always give a single line of string with all artist (or genre etc) name combined with "," separator. LUMIN app simply can not distinguish a "," in that line of artist string is within a single artist or different artist.

Is my understanding correct? If so could we think of some better way of doing this?

Thanks in advance.
