WAV files and multiple genre

WAV files and multiple genre
Hi Simon,
Congratulations for your awesome music server software package!
Apologies if my question below was already subject of an earlier thread, I couldn’t find an answer to my problem. I did tag WAV files using dBpoweramp and included multiple genre tags: GENRE= symphonic music; orchestral; classical.
If I now use Asset UPnP to scan my library, I will indeed find my music file properly indexed in each of the genre folders ‘symphonic music’, ‘orchestral’ and ‘classical’. Conversely with MinimServer (and actually also with Lumin or Lightning DS), I won’t find my music file in either one of the genres above. Rather a new genre folder is created as ‘symphonic music;orchestral;classical’ (note that the spaces after semi-colon have disappeared). Is Asset alone capable of handling multiple genre with WAV files? I added the setting 'Genre.display.multiTag' as tagCustom property, but without improvements.
Thank you in advance for your kind response.

It sounds like dBpoweramp has created a single GENRE tag containing the value 'symphonic music;orchestral;classical' instead of creating multiple GENRE tags as you wanted.

I have tried to check this by using the dBpoweramp "Edit ID Tag" function on a WAV file but I haven't been able to make "Edit ID Tag" work.
