Description of Issue
I’m noticing consistent (and weird) discrepancies between my play history and my ARC usage.
As an example, I deliberately played one track today - “Wild” by Spoon - and then I deliberately let Roon Radio play whatever it wanted to after that, which I love.
Followed by Roon Radio:
This Changes Everything (The Zolas)
Octave Doctors (Steve Hillage)
Lost My Way (Spencer Albee)
Enter Me, Exit You (Office)
If You Wanna Stay (The Griswolds)
Home (Great Northern)
I Got Hurt (EELS)
Streetlight (Dutch Uncles)
Love-Lore 1 (Ornette Coleman/JD Robb/Voivod/Earl Kim) (Deerhoof)
One In A Million (Captain)
Is There a Ghost (Band of Horses)
What happens in my history is interesting:
- On my Main Screen, under “Recent Activity > Played” it only shows the Spoon song:
- On my History, it doesn’t show that I played Spoon at all, but it shows all of the Roon Radio plays (focus on the activity that occurs “3 hours ago” in these screenshots):
This sort of thing doesn’t happen when I am playing using Roon Remote and my core. Just happens when playing via ARC.
Is this just a known bug with ARC play history, or is there something I should be doing/be concerned about?
