    Asset UPnP R7

    The major change to this update is a redesign of the internal database, this enables Asset to work with unlimited numbers of contributing artists, or multiple genres per track (previously it was 5).

    Install over the top of your existing Asset to maintain registration status (Windows).

    Download:

    http://www.dbpoweramp.com/beta/AssetUPnP-Windows.exe [Windows]

    (other platforms to follow)

    Changes:

    Windows Vista is the minimum supported version (Updated our compiler to latest)
    New database design, unlimited multiple artists, genres, etc
    Album art if larger than 2000x2000 then scaled to 2000x2000 (for speed and compatibility)
    Added composer supplied in Didl
    uMediaLibrary: cleaned up picture handling (webp is now supported),
    better integrity of filenamehash stuff - save in mid scan so it resumes where it died last time
    Added Frequency to default browse tree
    For control points which use Search to do album listings, the track order is based on track number
    New option on by default 'Album defined by folder' this means an album is unique to its folder it resides in
    Added crash reporter
    Added support for 'Work', 'Movement Name' and 'Movement Number' (itunes classical tags), can browse by Work, and will replace title with Movement Name and Track number with Movement Number.
    New browse tree item: Additional\Composer / Work\Work
    Added new possible browse tree item 'Album By Release (INV)' for an inverted listing, newest releases first
    Updated DSF and DFF presentation to audio/dsd (which Sony require)
    Codecs support HTTPS streaming


    Update to beta 4

    Re: Asset UPnP R7

    Great to see unlimited multiples!

    I've uninstalled R6 and then installed R7 in both XP and Windows 10 and found the following issues:


    1. My test library has 432 tracks which R6 detects correctly but R7 reports 1756 tracks in XP. In Windows 10, R7 adds 432 tracks every time you force a rescan, i.e. one rescan gives back 864 tracks and five rescans gives back 2592 tracks.

    2. Album art is absent in both XP and Windows 10

    3. I'm not able to add custom tags - I configured Style in the tree and it's selectable in Asset Control, but no styles show up. I tried to add both style and style,TEXT at the bottom of the index file but neither worked.

    Additional info:

    Only FLAC in my test library.

    I didn't try embedded art, only cover.jpg and folder.jpg.

    Re: Asset UPnP R7

    I've tried with embedded art now - no luck.


    Tried to uninstall R7 and installed R6.2 and album art comes back and track count is correct.

    Then uninstalled R6.2 and installed R7 and album art is gone and track count is wrong.


    Mick, which OS are you using?

    Re: Asset UPnP R7

    didl is the xml type language that UPnP results are passed from server to client.

    I have confirmed the issue with refresh all adding the tracks x2, x3.

    But I cannot reproduce the issue with folder.jpg, have a look in:

    %appdata%\dBpoweramp\uMediaLibrary

    do a properties on the file ArtStorev7.bin, what size is it (you have to do properties not look at size in explorer as it might not be updated).

    I've tried a) uninstalling 6.2 first and b) installing 7 on top of 6.2 - but the issues occur with both methods.

    I'm using WHS 2011... Sorry, I see everything's sorted now - this was my first visit to the forum in a few days and didn't see your post.

    Re: Asset UPnP R7

    Any idea when this will be released?

    Will these enhancements, particularly the expanded multi-value capabilities, be available for Linux and QNAP soon too?

    Full release is many months off, there is still much to add to Asset R7, all updates will find their way to the other platforms also.

    Re: Asset UPnP R7

    I'm at b3 and still having issues with AlbumArtist in the Browse tree. I have selected A-Z and no track listings, and this function seems to be working properly. However there are a significant number of AlbumArtists missing. And for those that do appear, many that have more than one Album, some are missing.

    If I do the same search under the regular Artist category, all of those missing Artists and Albums appear, so they are being found during the scan. But it almost as if the AlbumArtist tag is being missed. I verified that the tag itself is still present, and I use the sort tags as well. For my entire library, I have filled all of the sort tags, even if they match the non-sort tags.

    As a last resort, I deleted the entire library, even the browse tree options. So working from a completely fresh install, I rebuilt the browse tree and did a full scan after pointing Asset back to the media folder. But ended up with the same result.

    Anything you can suggest? I really prefer to use AlbumArtist as my main search starting point to shorten the list when browsing.

    I am current at v7b3 on a Win10/64 machine. Thanks for any pointers you can offer.

    If your using Flac files, then you need to have tagged 'Album Artist' not 'Albumartist'
