Reply To: Weird tag problem for Genre in mt-daapd 0.2.4

Copying the files to another slug running a fairly late version of the firefly server does not however exhibit this problem.

However I would rather wait for a stable release version of firefly before installing it on my main “mt-daapd” slug.

Is there anything I can do in the meantime to correct this inconsistency in tags ?

If you have patch-fu, the fix for it is here.

Fundamentally, the problem is that:

1. I was lazy
2. The genre starts with a number

If it didn’t start with a number, then it would be okay. Generally, genres can be either a number, which is a reference to the “standard” winamp list of genres, or it can be a string. So if the genre is a numeric string, it interprets it as a winamp genre number. Winamp genre #60 is (you guessed it) Top 40.

You could call it “Music from the 60’s”, or use a non-numeric lead character to work around it. Lame, but there you go.
