Track Titles

Track Titles
I have recently moved from Twonkey to MinimServer on my Melco and note that the track titles no longer appear at the beginning of each track.

I do have the latest firmware installed.

This sometimes happened randomly with Twonkey whereby the track titles were displayed for albums downloaded from Qobuz but not for imported albums and on other occasions, the reverse happened.

I do have some other issues with MinimServer but I think that these are related to Lightning DS (I use an Auralic Aires G2 as the player) but I think it best to post separately regarding this.

RE: Track Titles
Can you heck with a tag editor if the track title tag is actually filled?

RE: Track Titles
If a file has no Title tag, MinimServer uses the filename as the track title.

RE: Track Titles
Are the track titles visible when you are browsing your library, or do you see filenames instead of track titles?

The tracks are visible when browsing the library.

Semes strange that all is fine (most of the time), when using Twonkey.

RE: Track Titles
When browsing your library for a track whose title does not show up when playing, do you see track titles (such as My Track Name) or do you see filenames (such as My Track Name.mp3 or My Track Name.flac)? If you see filenames, this means the track title tag is missing.

When the track titles do not appear when playing, are they not appearing in the Melco front panel display or are they not appearing somewhere else?

When viewing the contents of the Melco, the track are listed as 01, 02, etc., followed by the track title. There are no extensions, such as .flac.

The track titles do not appear on the Melco's front panel display. Lightning DS and the Aires G2 display the track information.

I am just curious as to why I only have this issue when using MinimServer.

RE: Track Titles
Thanks for this information. As there are no extensions such as .flac when you browse your library, the tracks do have title tags.

I have a Melco server (N1A) and a Melco renderer (N1Z). When I play music from my Melco server to some other device, I don't see track titles in the front panel of the Melco server. This is the same with both MinimServer and Twonky. When I play music from some other device to my Melco renderer with a USB-attached DAC, I do see track titles in the front panel of the Melco renderer.

I think this means it is normal not to see track titles in the front panel of a Melco server if some other device (such as an Auralic) is being used as a network-attached UPnP renderer.
