The index selections are the names in the indexTags property. Each of these displays a list of choices, and these choices are formatted according to the index* series of options.

Is my assumption correct that every item that is indicated by a generic folder icon in Kinsky or BubbleUPnP is affected by the index* options/properties and that every item with an album art or generic album art and showing multiple lines as well as the now playing information is affected by the display* options/properties?
If your answer is yes, I think I got it now.

There are two facts I found a bit confusing:
1) Obviously, there is a mixture of 'index items' and 'display items' in the browsing tree presented by MinimServer (and other servers). I'm not sure why, but I thought that index* and display* in the user guide define a strict separation between what is shown in the browsing tree and what is shown in the now playing information.
2) I was not aware which data from MinimServer shown in the control point refers to 'XML data sent' and which does not.

I don't think this is 100% correct. Also, it seems a complicated way to describe it.

Here's my attempt:

Everything that's displayed when you select one of the tags in the indexTags property is affected by index*, and everything else is affected by display*.

I hope the above description helps to clarify this.

I will try to avoid using this terminology in future.

Thanks once again, now everything is clear.
Just a minor comment referring to my initial post: the indexValue.yearOnly tag option seems not to apply only to the index tags but also to the display, as e.g. Kinsky shows YYYY in the album view. I prefer it this way, but it seems not to be 100 percent consistent.

This is something that Kinsky is doing. MinimServer is sending a full date value to Kinsky, and Kinsky is applying its own yearOnly formatting to this value.

Thanks for all this valuable information. I feel much more comfortable now with understanding these things.
