[mythtv-users] MythMusic doesn't display ogg tags

I've just re-done half of my music collection and ha da severe fiddle about
with mythmusic's options to try and get around this problem I seem to be
having with all of my ogg vorbis files.
Most of them have been ripped under windows using CDex, there are a few in
there that have also been done with GRIP and abcde, and as far as I can
tell all seem to suffer from the same problem.
When I come to play them, all the tagging information seems to go by
unnoticed, in that the playback will display something like this:
/home/mythtv/music/Drum 'n' Bass 'n' Breaks... [goes offscreen]
A Recipe for Disaster 
160kbps 44.1KHz 2ch
It seems that MythMusic isn't reading any of the tags, since it's grabbing
the album name from the directory information (the album name in the ogg
tag is just A Recipe for Disaster, without the  bit). All the files
have valid ogg tags which seem to display fine in every other sound app I
have (I've also deleted and rebuilt the tags several times using different
tagging apps). MP3 files with ID3v1/2 tags display perfectly. I've tried
altering the general settings between "directory" and "genre artist album
title", and the filename format is "GENRE/ARTIST/ALBUM/TRACK - ARTIST -
TITLE - ALBUM" (to use the above example, the full path to this particular
file is /home/mythtv/music/Drum 'n' Bass 'n' Breaks/DJ Food/A Recipe for
Disaster /01 - DJ Food - Dark River - A Recipe for Disaster.ogg and
so on and so forth for the rest of my collection). The music share is a
read-only NFS job mounted on /home/mythtv/music from my file server.
Does anyone have any idea what's gone wrong and how I can be able to view
my files properly?
Thanks for any info!
