@Stevesky in another thread there is a guy having a big problem getting metadata for new rips in a latest firmware Unitiserve too. So maybe MusicBrainz has done something to the API that is affecting all Naim server lookups.
David this thread has prompted a thought, I still have US SSD and although I only rip periodically, I do think IIRC that I have had to add art work to most of the recent rips.
Thanks for the flag and let’s see what transpires.
Agreed just done a quick mixed sample of my latest rips (yesterday) and only Rovi is showing info, nothing for MB or Free DB. However, just this moment ripped another couple of CDs and MB is showing data for one but not the other
No CD contains metadata Pete. Each published CD has a number which the CD player/ripper can read and that can be cross-checked against any one of a number of metadata lookup databases. The publisher has to notify the metadata databases of everything it publishes and this is where the system quite often falls down.
