When Tags Dont Update
Hi,

I was wondering if people have had the problem where corrected tags dont show up? eg a album may have ELVIS as the artist which I correct to Elvis. However, no matter how many times I change it, refresh the cache in Naim n-Stream etc is still says ELVIS

I am using flacs, Tag and Metadatics on the Mac to tag and the latest version of Mininserver and Naim n-Stream

Not sure if there are some weird underlying tags that overwrite main artist/album etc?

Thanks

I dont know anything about what NAIM n-stream does but all the other elements you have (FLAC, Metadatics, Minimserver) I use as well and they work flawlessly.

I assume you have done a "Rescan" in MinimServer after changing the tags?

Some tagging programs don't change the file's timestamp when they update a tag. There is usually a preference setting to change this. If the timestamp isn't updated and the file length stays the same, MinimServer can't detect that the file has been updated and continues to use the existing cache entry for the file.

To do a full refresh of the MinimServer cache, set the startupScan property to full and click Rescan. This will be a lot slower, so a better solution is to configure your tagging program to update file timestamps.

Thanks so much

RE: When Tags Dont Update
Metadatics does not have an option to set the timestamp, but when I change tags with metadatics, the file gets a new time stamp. Strange that this does not seem to happen in your case...

Hi,

I am still having this issue even after setting scan to full. They show up when I use Twonky so assume its something Minim related. Any ideas?

Thanks

You said earlier (on 13 May) that the 'full' option had fixed the problem, so I'm not quite sure what has changed since then.

Do you have the same content directory path settings in Twonky and MinimServer? If MinimServer is scanning an older copy of your files, that might cause this problem.

Hi. Sorry I should have been clearer. The full option fixed tags that were showing but weren't updating. This is a separate issue in that files don't show up at all. Yes, definitely in a scanning directory.

Thanks

Have you checked the MinimServer log for error messages?

On Linux-based platforms, MinimServer doesn't scan folders that start with a period (regarded as "hidden" by Linux convention). Could this be the reason?

You can set the logging level to Verbose to see the complete list of folders that are being scanned by MinimServer. This might provide some clues.
