Bug or Feature? - Podcast Grouping by Artist

Post by christian.ry » Mon Mar 21, 2011 3:48 am

Hi,

If this isn't the right place to report, please advise where to put it - or move it there, thanks (I think it's a iOS driver issue).

I am using several Podcasts that have different contributing Authors, so the Author field is not identical.
(e.g. http://www.dradio.de/rss/podcast/sendun ... nammorgen/)

After syncinc them to an iPhone, the show up as different Podcasts, grouped by Author, but all with the same name.
This is painful to use. I can manually change (unify) the Artists, but this is also painful (and can lead to confusion and duplicate items).

The latest MM3 builds showed the same behaviour.

Is this a feature or a bug ;-)?
Thanks
Christian


Setup
Windows 7 64Bit, MediaMonkey_4.0.0.1342_Debug.exe

That would solve it.

On the other hand I still think it doesn't make sense to group Podcasts by the Artist field, and not solely by the Name of the Podcast.

But you're saying your iDevice is doing this sort no? I'm not sure in which way MediaMonkey could change that other than renaming the Artists.

In Mediamonkey the are correctly shown.

And if I select the tracks and unify the Artist tag, they are shown (correclty) in one single Podcast on the iPhone.


So to me the iPhone "driver" (or how this is called) is messing it up, no?

Probably because the URL is wrong, try: http://www.dradio.de/rss/podcast/sendun ... ftammittag
