dCS Mosaic and MinimServer 2

dCS Mosaic and MinimServer 2
I just made it happen again!
I rescanned my library with MinimServer and then went to my main rig and loaded a Mosaic playlist that I created a week ago (37 files from my Synology NAS, nearly 3 hours of music).
I first saw the first let’s say 10 entries, then suddenly they changed and approx. half of the items changed names. When I play the list the new files will occur in the Mosaic play queue.
Very surprising! Anyone got the same result?
It seems like there is something happening in the communication between Mosaic and MinimServer. To me, it looked like Mosaic remembered the original playlist at first but then within a second got new information from MinimServer and changed some of the content in the playlist.
Any help appreciated!

RE: dCS Mosaic and MinimServer 2
It looks like dCS Mosaic is storing UPnP object IDs for the tracks in the playlist. These object IDs can change when MinimServer does a rescan. In this case, you would either get the wrong track for the playlist entry or no track at all.

There are other approaches for storing playlist tracks that are less likely to return the wrong track when the playlist is reloaded. I will contact dCS to discuss this.

Thanks a lot for quick answer, Simon! I am looking forward to the results of that discussion!
Best regards
