    Asset UPnP Album Count

    Hello,
    I am running Asset UPnP Version: R5; Functionality: Premium Registered on my QNAP TVS-463.
    I also have MinimServer running on the same NAS.

    When I compare the number of tracks they are in agreement.

    When I compare the number of Albums they are not.
    MinimServer shows 1955 albums.
    Asset UPnP shows 1956 albums.

    Asset UPnP Configuration settings related to Multi-Disc Albums
    Multi-Disc Albums show as '[Disc] [Track] [Title]' checked
    Multi-Disc Albums extract disc number from album tag not checked
    Multi-Disc Albums show as 'Album, Disc x' not checked

    I have spent several hours comparing the two and can not seem to find the extra album in Asset UPnP.

    I then ran a script that listed the folders on the server and I seem to have 1955 folders that each contain the tracks for one album.

    I also noticed that Asst UPnP has one album group called Unknown Album.
    Does the Unknown Album group count toward the total number of Albums?

    Does anyone have an idea about how I could resolve this mystery?

    Thank you,
    Chip

    Is anything listed under Unknown Album?

    Yes, four tracks that seem to be bad rips.

    There is probably something wrong with the tags for these four tracks e.g. Album tag is incorrect and Asset is counting these tracks as another album. Check the tags for these tracks.

    Are these tracks from the same album?

    Four tracks from three albums.

    The other tracks from each Album show up under the correct album.

    I have just found the same four tracks from three albums listed in MinimSever under the 'No Album' heading.

    Off to check the tags.

    Update:
    I used MP3Tag to re-tag all the tracks in the three albums.
    Rescan Asset UPnP and MinimServer and now both show 1955 Albums as I expected and the same number of tracks.

    It seems Asset UPnP counts the 'Unknown Album' group as an Album where MinimServer does not count the 'No Album' group as an Album.

    I learned something today thanks to the advice from mville.

    Thanks mville,
    Chip
