Description Of Issue
My phone Roon Remote app crashes when accessing particular songs in my collection. I use a drop folder for mixes I do (for checks in the living room) and it always worked perfectly. The problem is occurring since the last Roon client update, and only on my phone. Via the Raspberries and a Windows client there is no problem. The files are 24/44 FLACs, and are tagged properly.

I have tried installing the remote app and installing it again, and I have removed the Roon cache on my QNAP to see whether it could solve the problem. Here’s part of the log:

Hi @Tjarko_Busink,

I’ll tag @support to follow up with you (there have been a few reports of problems with Android devices).

Thanks. Btw, I tested it with my wife’s tablet. Same problem.

Hi @Tjarko_Busink,

Since experiencing this issue have you tried rebooting your Xperia?

I’ve also enabled diagnostics on your account so we can take a look — The next time your remote connects to the Core a report will be sent to us so the team can take a look.

Just rebooted and tried again. Roon Remote crashed again so you should see something.

Hi Dylan…did some testing. It’s crashing when the cover art is missing. When I drop a random jpg in the folder it seems to work.

Thanks, @Tjarko_Busink.

Diagnostics have been enabled and the team is looking into this. I’ll be sure to follow up as soon as we have more information.

The workaround (keeping a jpg in the folder as album art) is working, so it’s not likely it will occur again soon at my end.


We’ve released a new update, Roon 1.7 Build 528, which contains improvements that we believe will help with the issues you are experiencing here. Please see our release notes below:

The Team At Roon Labs

Great! I’ll test it immediately! Thanks for acknowledging my issue and fixing it so quickly too!
