You are missing this setting:

tagFormat = Artist.displayFormat={}

RE: Windows Media Player - Multiple Artists
Okay, I have done some more testing and found a solution that I think will work for me.

This is the current config that I'm using, which is the one you posted earlier that was very very close for me:
Code:
itemTags = Performer, MainArtist
tagValue = Performer.default={Artist}, MainArtist.default={AlbumArtist, Artist}
tagFormat = Artist.displayFormat={$mainartist}
upnpCustom = multiTag={Performer}, roleTags={AlbumArtist, Performer}
If I provide an explicit AlbumArtist tag on the albums where there's one "main" artist and then some songs have multiple contributing artists, things work exactly as I want.

The equivalent that I'd need from MinimServer's configuration scripting would be: If the track doesn't have an AlbumArtist (or perhaps MainArtist in this case), default to the first artist packed into the Artist tag, not all of the artists packed into the Artist tag.

So, I think I can totally go back and update my library to have an AlbumArtist tag in the above scenario - it's not that many, and it's probably a more accurate way to have them tagged. But if there is some way to script that into MinimServer's parsing, it would be good to know about Smile

Thank you for all your help!
