My Dune player shows only title, year, artist meta fields. Do other players show only these fields? Is there anything I can do for Dune to show meta data for Albim Artist, composer etc.

Zappiti, Yadis, 10Muse, My Movies are some of the programs you can use for jukebox purposes. I used to use Zappiti, which is probably the easiest jukebox to use, and the most simple. Yadis looks a much nicer and skins are free. I am currently using 10Muse + iPad App.

If you do a little bit more research you can find a lot of information such as http://www.mediasmartserver.net/2010/08/13/guide-setting-up-zappiti-for-the-dune/ This is an older guide, but its pretty much the same set up for the new Zappiti.

Thanks for the reply. I guess it is Dune that has to display meta data like Album Artist , composer etc while playing songs. Once control goes to Dune, juke boxes won't come into picture. Some data is specific to track.

I don't use my Dune for music. So, I can't really help you on that part.
