I hope this is the right forum for this issue.

I'm having trouble getting Emby to see things correctly. For instance, it sees the White album, it sees the first cd of  25 Blues Masters, but it doesn't see the rest of the Blues Masters cds, and makes just silly additions to the playlist tree.

The ripping program recognized the series of CDs during the rip, and suggested appropriate (used) folder names.

My HDD:
\Music
    \Blues Masters
        \cd1
        \cd2
        \cd3
        \cd4

Emby:
Music
25 Blues Masters
    25 Blues Masters Vol. 1
    J. Reed (from a totally seperate folder!)
    Beathovan (from a totally different - everything!)

I used a professional CD ripper to do this. I successfully ripped the White Album this way and it works perfectly. Emby lists 30 songs in one directory with the folder structure:
\Beatles
    \Disk 1
    \Disk 2

Can anyone explain what's going wrong? Since it all works on tags, and the tags were all present in the ripping, where's the error?

Thanks.

Best guess mis-identification since "Blues Masters" and "25 Blues Masters" are not the same.  Look at the external ids that were fetched.  And you would have to compare the tags on the tracks also.

 

Does this happen in web client also?  This I don't believe is a Roku issue.

If you search the album "25 Blues Masters" in Musicbrainz it shows up as 4 individual albums not one. Unfortunately the software you used to rip the cd doesn't used the name naming convention as the metadata provider. If the 4 albums on musicbrainz match what you have ripped I recommend renaming each of the 4 cd's to  "25 Blues Masters Vol. 1", "25 Blues Masters Vol. 2", .....

You can also add the MusicBrainz Release ID to the media info to manually indentify an album. In the case of 25 Blues Masters Vol. 1 the id is "d58afb67-9eaf-4175-8dad-85bdb13ed831"

If you see the same thing in the web app you could easily take screen grabs there.  However, it appears the others may be correct and it is a simple mis-identification due to naming.
