    Re: Asset UPnP v5

    Quick update on BubbleDS (Android UPnP control point) usage for UPnP search on the r4 latest beta: BubbleDS 1.4.1 was released yesterday. If you force UPnP search enabled under the advanced options menu, search will give back results. Asset does not (yet?) correctly broadcast its support for search to control point software.

    Furthermore: Asset r4 seems to support a limited search though, the search will only provide results if the pattern is part of a song name. You cannot search for other tags (artist, label, composer, ...), just song names. Although this already is a major improvement that I will use a lot, it would be nice if it could be extended.

    Upstream artwork just uses the first file which has artwork, be it folder.jpg or embedded. You cannot guarantee which order the files will be scanned in.

    DaFork,

    The final release of Asset will correct the search feature with Bubble (bubble also has to be updated also, to accept '*'). Can you switch on the debug feature of Asset then do some searches you think are not properly handled then post the debug log?

    Now that I switched on 'force upnp search' in Bubble it works. However I am wondering if other tags than the title tag will give results as well in an upcoming version of Asset. If I search for 'dire' I do not get results matching 'Dire Straits'. This is likely as intended for now, but am wondering if it would be up in a future release. If that should already give results I can post the log you request of course.

    Asset cannot currently search for partial matches.

    That explains it, thanks I tested it and it behaves just like that. Put partial matches for artists and album names on the list of features that ship with v4 final please :-)

    Asset v4 WHS2011 "networked data"

    I am running (as a test) WHS2011 as a VM, and have several USB disks containing music data connected to the host machine (mac). As the VM sees the disks as "network locations" they seem invisible to Asset (running a registered version of WHS2011). I tried creating links in the local Music dir to the locations where the actual data resides, but Asset won't be fooled. If I copy some of the data to the local disk, it sees the data, and adds it to its db. Is there a fix for this, a workaround, or am I trying to do something that can't be done. In that case, networked data is a no go.

    there are just two things that I can think of:
    a.) if the VM treats them as "network locations", try mounting the network location as a "local disc" by giving them a drive-letter and point Asset to that drive letter
    b.) links will not work, create junctions. On my WHS2011, I am working with junctions, and Asset works. Only downside at the moment is, that (used to work before) the automatic rescan doesn't start, when I add new music to the music-folder, that is referenced via the junction.

    If you add folder in Asset then it should allow selection from the Network tree.

    Mapping the drive possibly will not work for Asset running as a service (not 100% sure though, it is worth a try).

    You're right; it only works when you're not running Asset as a service. The junctions did not work either, as they're not allowed to non local discs. I have the USB disks mapped to a drive letter, and that works fine.
