I’m looking for help on a metadata error I can’t figure out.
I bought a replacement Fourplay ‘Fourplay’ album from Qobuz.
It plays OK but the album doesn’t display correctly on the app using Asset UPuP
The greyed out Album Artist name “Fourplay” under the album title doesn’t show.
It looks like it’s missing from Qobuz, it’s the same after a reload.
NB: don’t be confused, the album is Fourplay by Fourplay
I am wedded to Roon so my experience with the Naim app is limited (despite @frenchrooster’s trust in me ) but given that it does this for both these albums, might it be by design that it shows the name only once if artist and album name are the same?
Edit: I looked through my Qobuz albums in the Naim app and found Chic by Chic, and both album and artist are shown. However, did not check over UPnP because that’s not running and I’d have to boot the NAS and all. Do you have other eponymous albums?
I trust you indeed for all network, pc, metadata….environment. As Crystalgypsy or Simon S.

No its not an issue, far from it, I only noticed it yesterday for the first time & looking around I have other bands with the same.
When I found it yesterday it was during the need (again) to fix Qobuz file nomenclature & metadata problems. That set off my OCD driven techie-geekness & I want to find why & how to fix’um.
Any-ol-howz, we’re off to the first family Christmas bash for 2 years, techie-geek needs to get back in the box.
That’s the spirit, Mike. Put Mr Dull back in the box of dullness and get Mr Party out. We ran a sold out show last night with Kanda Bongo Man and I’m just waiting to do down with your know what. But I’ve tested negative this morning, which means I can go out for our WemsFest Christmas meal in the pub tonight. When we are locked down again in the new year there will be plenty of time to fiddle with pesky metadata issues. Enjoy your time with the family, it’s just so important.
The problem is in artists (bands, groups) with self titled albums when the album artist name & album title are the same
In my case I found it with the group Fourplay & their album Fourplay
It plays OK but the album doesn’t display correctly on the app.
The semi.greyed out Album Artist name Fourplay that should normally be under the album title Fourplay doesn’t show.
I asked the dBpoweramp/Asset forum & their design people have replied that the problem is in the Naim app
In my case it’s iOS 5.23, iPad on 15.2
… they analysed the problem using my log data (the IP address in the following is mine)
