Can't get ARTISTSORT to work

Hi all,

I'm trying to get my artist to sort properly. Of course, I want that to happen across my various players, so I'm trying to figure tags that work across the board.

MusicBrainz claim that ARTISTSORT and ALBUMARTISTSORT are what I should use, see very bottom of last post :
http://forums.musicbrainz.org/viewtopic.php?pid=12090#p12090

My tagger, Mp3tag, also support ARTISTSORT and ALBUMARTISTSORT :
http://help.mp3tag.de/main_tags.html

My SqueezeBox also support ARTISTSORT and ALBUMARTISTSORT :

http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.p...bum-Artist-Sort

And finally, Foobar2000 also support ARTISTSORT and ALBUMARTISTSORT in recent versions :
http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=88002

So, I take a few files from my FLAC collection, add the ARTISTSORT to the files as such :
CODE
ARTISTSORT = "Rossini, Gioacchino"

I'm using Foobar2000 v1.1.11, default setting, default skin. I've checked that the FLAC/Vorbis metadata mode is set to "More compatible with various software".

I exit Foobar, I restart, and my artist don't want to sort according to the new tag in the "Album List" window. I tried by artist or by genre, does not work, artist are always listed by the ARTIST field, not the ARTISTSORT field.

When I open the property for the artist, I can see in the list of tags :
CODE
+--------------+-----------------------------+
| <ARTISTSORT> | Rossini, Gioacchino         |
+--------------+-----------------------------+


So, the tag was read by Foobar in the file, but completely ignored for sorting. I'm quite puzzled as I don't understand why it does not work as advertised. I would expect such problem with ID3, but not with VorbisComment !

Thanks in advance,

Jean
