Artists Repeat in Spite of Playout Policy

Current State:

350 + artists

500 + albums

4200 + tracks


All within the same Group/Genre


Playout Policy:  Artist Repeat = 2 hours, Track Repeat = 24 hours


I occasionally see an artist being repeated within one or two tracks.  I do not think based on my figures above that I would ever run out of tracks, yet early repeats do happen.


Does anyone have any insight?


Thanks,


Earl


How good is the track metadata ?


Is the same artist always EXACTLY the same in the tags ?


Capitalisation ?


Spaces ?

Just as an example, I have multiple copies of "Green Onions"


The artist is credited as 


Booker T. & The MG'S

Booker T And The MGs

Booker T And The MG's


all would be seen as different artists.
