    Streaming Album Artist rather than Artist in Denon HEOS

    Hi: I'm streaming Asset from a qnap NAS to a Denon HEOS DLNA system. Everything works great except the when a track is playing, the Denon HEOS app reports the track name, the album artist and the album. Normally this would not be a problem, except for compilations, where the track then reports the track name, "Various Artists" and the album name. Is there a setting within Asset to correct this? Do I need to modify the browser tree? Current settings are as follows:

    Album Artist{_a_to_z_}{_no_track_list_}
    Album Artist\Album
    Title{_a_to_z_}
    Composer{_a_to_z_}{_no_track_list_}

        The denon must be picking Album artist over artist always. The only way to change for you is to remove the album artist 'various artists' from the ID Tags it is not needed.

          I ended up solving my problem by renaming the file names of all ttacks on compilations so that the filename included the artist name was part of the file name. So now the track name that HEOS reports includes the artist name.
