The same albumtitle (Old Problem????)

Postby norrin_radd » Sun Oct 16, 2016 5:22 pm

Hello, there is following problem:
I have many albums with the same albumtitle like Greatest Hits; Anthology; Live etc. These albums have different artists, but Twonky shows them as one album. Santana´s Greatest Hits and Rolling Stones Greatest Hits are in the same album. What can I do that they are shown as seperate albums?

I have the same issue as well. I was wondering why no matter what I did, Foo Fighters album Greatest Hits just wouldn't show up in their list of albums. On doing a search on Album titles instead of Artists I noticed only one Greatest Hits album listed and of course had tracks from every Greatest Hits album I have within.
I got around this (begrudgingly) by renaming each album 'ELO Greatest Hits' 'Fleetwood Mac Greatest Hits' etc but then thought what other albums are affected?
Realised that Mike Oldfield's, ELO's and Daft Punk's album 'Discovery' are also affected and not showing up as well as other titles. No easy rename fix for that.
Is there a proper fix for this as my renaming is just removing the symptom not curing the actual fault.
