That allows me to browse all Soloists wherever I have multiple soloists in Songbook Lite, Kinsky and co..

This is fine for browsing, but AFAIK there's no industry standard way to send this information to the control point as a DIDL-Lite XML tag.

Now I can't wait! Please give LUMIN ALL, including custom Tag! Big Grin

Instead of a user manual option, how about when a request is from LUMIN, by default gives all Tag info, so the whole setup will "just work"! That'd be awesome! Cool

RE: LUMIN iPad controller app
Btw, before anyone ask, there is NO search function in LUMIN app yet. Search function is coming. Since LUMIN app has ALL the song info in it's own database, any kind of search and cross-linking is possible...

There isn't an industry standard way to send custom tags.

RE: LUMIN iPad controller app
ok, so if I multi-tag Album Artist, would that get picked up. So far I understood that multitagging Album Artist isnt industry standard either...

Btw, who defines industry standard? Linn's UpnP extension also were not / are not industry standard until they just started doing the most sensible think and extend the UPnP "standard".

If we all wait for some body (Eu-Comission, UNO, World Bank, UPnP Board ???) to define such standards, we'll wait forever. I think someone just has to just SET THEM !!

Why not MinimServer and LUMIN ??

- by Orchestra
- by Soloist
etc.

Simon said he wrote MinimServer to fit the needs of classical music. LUMIN recommends MinimServer, but it does not support these tags? Hey guys, are you kidding me?

MinimServer doesn't allow that. The reasons for this have been discussed extensively on this forum.

The UPnP interoperability situation is difficult enough already. I don't think it's a good idea to make it even worse by adding nonstandard extensions to DIDL-Lite.

RE: LUMIN iPad controller app
Great app, with a lot of info: year, genre.

But I have a problem with all the artists with "the" in the name. I named The Cure in the artist tag "Cure, the" and The Beatles become "Beatles, the". So now I have a lot of bands called only "the".

And alphabetical all the "the" artists are under the T.
