I spent an hour and a half trying to get The Pretenders box set to show up in my artist folder but was not successful. I found that the MusicBrainz Artist ID and AudioDB Artist ID codes were different for the artist folder and the album discs, which is bizarre since it's The Pretenders and not some obscure group. I figured that was the problem. I verified which were the correct tags and made sure everything matched between artist folder and albums--and it still didn't show up. When I go to the artist page on my computer it shows I have no Pretenders albums but if I hit the play button on the screen it starts playing the first song from the first disc. If I try playing The Pretenders box set on my Roku I have to do it by searching through albums--if I click on my Pretenders artist folder it never finds anything.
My folder structure is very simple: music/artist/album.
My music that Media Browser can find in the artist folders and the music it can't find are all saved with identical folder structures, so that isn't an issue. I have had some albums show up in the artist folder when I re-did the id-tags with Mp3tag but that's only worked 60% of the time. It did not work with The Pretenders box set.
I've had problems with Media Browser screwing up my meta-data for movies when they did a server update. I've had to do a find to identify some movies 3 times because the info keeps getting erased after server updates. Presumably that's what happened with Fay Ray because it was good then it was gone and I didn't change anything.
