Dear all, I’ve seen that finally after two years Plex for Sonos got a major update… and it is a very welcome one! Everything seems to work better after the reauthentication.
Only an old bug, reported since 2016, persist: the “artist” and “album artist” fields are wrongly displayed in Sonos even if they are correctly set up in Plex. When playing an album, Sonos “album artist” field (named simply Artist by Sonos) shows the information of Plex “album artist”, which is ok… but all the songs in the album get credited to the Plex "album artist"field too. This is a big problem for compilations, tribute albums, duets and even normal albums containing “guest” artists. Here is an example:
Easy Rider Soundtrack correctly shown in Plex, “album artist”= Various Artists, “artist” field different for every song (Steppenwolf, Smith, The Birds, etc…):
Easy Rider Soundtrack shown in Sonos, “album artist”= Various Artists (which is OK), “artist” field reporting the “album artist” for every song… All the songs are credited to “Various Artists” instead of the real artist:
Is it possible to correct this bug too, now that Plex for Sonos is getting some attention?
Thanks, in advance,
