Beyoncé vs. Beyonce in Artist View

Post by TheEmpathicEar »

Build 2264. I just noticed that in MM5 Artist View there are two entries just like in the subject line. They both point to the same folders/files. The folder for the artist is "Beyoncé" [with accent]. Is this normal behaviour? I explored both in Artist view and they seems to be identical?
EDIT: I checked the artist tags in the MP3 files and it's "Beyoncé" for album artist and "Beyonce" for artist. Should this be changed?

You explained already, you have the different values in the tags (Artist and Album Artist). You'll need to tag your files to use 1 value consistently for both Artist and Album Artist.

Ok, thx. I was wondering if there would be any reason for these tags to be different in a case like this.

No, it comes down to tagging and you may have corrected one in the past without correcting the other.

Hi,
HINT: You can tweak MM search Under Tools -> Options -> Library -> Search and set it to watch for Diacritics.
