Using "composer" sub-tree only for classical music ?

I'd like to restrict the "by composer" branch in the navigation tree of my Twonky server v6.0.38 installation to genre="Classical" only. That branch seems to be created with this paragraph in view-definitions.xml: <container name='composer' id='music/composers' createClass='object.item.audioItem.m <...

Tweaking translations to local language - how ?

Is there a practical way for me to modify Twonky server's German language translation for "playlists" as presented in the menu tree ? What's displayed is "Wiedergabelisten"; I'd like that to be "9 - WIedergabelisten". I'm hoping that will allow me to change the sorting order. I found a strings-de.tx...

Rebuild playlists ? (6.0.38)

The 6.0.38 Twonky server on my Buffalo Linkstation mini fails to create my custom playlists upon starting or restarting. Rescanning media files won't help; my only workaround is to have it rebuild the db. Is there any way (startup parameter, rpc action, ...) other than a db rebuild to make it (re-)c...

Re: Items under "Genre" showing up in strange sort order

Thanks again, phibertron. And, ok, your $1000 bet on Red is clearly a winning one. I've since adjusted the 'genre' values (using mp3tag) and that " secondary genre" issue is gone now; it's now "secondary genre", just as it should. I take your point about the translation to be about how to simply byp...

Items under "Genre" showing up in strange sort order

In order to not have too many entries under "genre", I'd long ago decided to use values such as "Jazz, Swing" along with the base values ("Jazz", in this case). Under Twonky v4, these were treated as atomic, while v6 seems to consider them as a comma separated list, resulting in the respective title...

Re: Bogus entries in "Genre" tag ?

So, that problem might have been caused by mp3tg doing some formatting when p...
