The Queue and Now Playing Artist Info does NOT match the "Artist" field as stored in the Artist Index.


Userlevel 2
The Artist Name being displayed in the Sonos Queue and the Now Playing Track is being pulled from the "Album Artist" field instead of the "Artist" field. This is because the Artist Index is actually being populated from the "Album Artist" field and the Contributing Artist Index from the "Artist" field. Obviously this causes many search and play issues. 1. Trying to find a group of tracks from the Artist Index means you must actually reference the Artist that was defined in the "Album Artist" field. This is problem with any CD where an Artist has multiple Contributing Artists. You need to pick and find the same album from the various "Album Artists" under the Artist Index. Or you need to pick the tracks from the Contributing Artist index which has the correct "Artist" name. 2. The Artist being displayed in the Queue is correctly being pulled from the "Artist" field but this is listed in the Contributing Artist Index. So picking tracks from an artist the Artist Index are instead displayed in the Queue as the Artist listed in the Contributing Artist index. 3. The Now Playing artist is also correctly referencing the "Artist" field but again not the artist listed in the Artist Index. The Queue Artist matches the Now Playing Artist but these are listed in the Contributing Artist Index and the "Artist" field. So playing a track from the Artist Index are instead displayed in Now Playing as the Contributing Artist index artist. 4. Selecting the Track Info displays the same details as in the Now Playing Artist. The View All Tracks on Album switches to the "Album Artist" field and only lists those tracks where the Artist Index artist are the same as the one in Now Playing. This is NOT the artist displayed in Now Playing which is being pulled from the "Artist" field. The Album Info also switches to displays the "Album Artist" field as listed in the Artist Index artist. But the Now Playing artist is the pulling the "Artist" field. So everything in the Info screens refer to the artist listed in the Artist Index and the "Album Artist" field. To summarize the Artist displays differ based on the screen. The Artist displayed in the Queue and Now Playing screens is being pulled from the "Artist" field as found in the Contributing Artist Index. The Artist displayed in the Info screens is being pulled from the "Album Artist" field as found in the Artist Index.
