Perhaps the number of times played was taking precedence over artist separation? I'll report back after a full day's history is available.

@Marius is this the case? I am using 1.7.1 and I still don't see artist separation. I have a good amount of songs too.

Not only that, when I go to the song request page, it still shows other songs available from the artist that just played. The only song that's not available is the song that just played that featured an artist.

I went back to using my PHP script to update but the playlist is still repeating artists pretty close together. I have about 20 entries in my rotation including sweepers.

I have them all set to use Least times played, is that some how causing an issue? I should be able to do that without artist repeats. I have enough music.

Ahhh, no sir I had not. I didn't know you added that option. I just figured it was included in the repeat rules.
Thanks, I'll play with it.

Since changing the rotation rules to random rather than least times played I've not found further artist separation or early track repeating problems.   ;)

Very happy with this feature. I have been testing for a couple of days and works perfectly.

Thanks very much for your work.

What I do is move the (featuring...) down to the title field after the song title. To me that made more sense since the featured artist is not the album artist.

So I change the mp3 metadata from

Drake feat Ti - Song Title

to

Drake - Song Title (feat. Ti)

Just makes more sense to me since Ti is not the actual artist for that album/song

That might make since but many mp3 are tagged professionally with Artist feat someone - Song Title.  I have an app for my station and when it parses the metadata to display it, I only have to parse it one time because when I do my Last.FM api call to get the album art I already have the song title in a variable.  If I had the featured artist in the title I'd have to do more parsing initially. I prefer the title to show by itself on my app and radio.

Anyway, I believe the problem is fixed so doesn't really matter now.

I have 8 different genres and many of the songs I have played are from different artists but doing the same song in their version of it. Is there going to be a new action, where as I can load all these diferent genres with the same song into the database with out it saying "already exists"
thank you
