info files not always accessible
Hello,

I have recently added some new audio files to my collection.

It is a complete set of Shostakovich symphonies.
My directory structure is basically
Shared_Music/Classical/<composer>/<album>

In the case of the complete symphonies, I have:
Shared_Music/Classical/Shostakovich/Shostakovich-The-Complete-Symphonies/<CDn>

Even though each of the CDn directories has a folder.pdf file, the digital booklet is not shown in the properties on BubblePNP controller. It works for my pre-existing albums.

Additionally, I have a number of the Shostakovich symphonies by different orchestras and conductors. I have added tags for both of these but when I, say click on Shostakovich Symphony No. 1, I do not get, as I expected, a another level of choices for conductor and orchestra. Instead it immediately selects the last audio file changed.

I don't get this behaviour where I have multiple recordings of a work elsewhere.

Is it something to do with the directory structure I have chosen?

I get no indication of any problem in the log file.

minimserver-2.0.18
minimserver-update-191

Regards
Trevor

Did you do a rescan after adding these folder.pdf files?

Does each CDn folder contain exactly one complete symphony?

Hello Simon,

Yes I have rescanned many times as I have tried different ideas.

No, some CDs have more than 1 symphony. I have individual symphonies to individual groups. No symphony spans more than 1 CD. The merging of the CDs seems to work properly. I get the total of all symphonies from every CD if I select the entire album.

How are you trying to access the folder.pdf file for a group? For your other symphonies that do show folder.pdf files, are these also tagged as groups?

Is "Shostakovich Symphony No. 1" tagged as Work? If so, are you sure your other recordings of this symphony have an identical Work tag? Are you selecting this symphony from the Work index?

For multiple symphonies in the same folder, how do you handle this with a single folder.pdf file? Does this folder.pdf file describe the complete set of symphonies?

Does the "album" you have referred to represent the complete set of symphonies or one of the CDs?
