[Tellico-users] Several Issues

Hi Robby -

I am assuming that both Peter and I are using the same package.  We are both 
on Fedora 23 and both on the same version of Tellico.  It seems a reasonable 
assumption that Peter did the same as I, which is to install Tellico by using the 
package out of the Fedora repository.  Hopefully he will see this and let us know 
whether my assumption is correct.

Is it possible for you to get an SACD Hybrid disk?  Preferably something from 
Pentatone since they are the only ones I ever tried.  When I was trying them, 
they would always cause a crash.  It was 100% reproducible.

I actually use OGG and FLAC formats for almost everything.  The specification for 
ID3 tags mentions multi-value fields, but so far no player I have found will 
support them.  In my experience Tellico provides BETTER multi-value support 
than ID3 tags!

Regards - Bill Gee
