Bad Primary Artists on Pipes of Peace

Right after today’s message (which I am always scared of) from roon: A new database has been installed (or similar)…

Messed up metadata all over. Today more than previously. The bad thing is, roon thinks it should touch also good edited and maintained albums in the collection.

Paul McCartney’s album Pipes of Peace suddenly belongs to a long list of primary artists… So, again going into the editor and throw them all out. Not the only one messed up update.

Have you made any edits to this content in Roon?

Is the album identified in Roon?

Is this content from local files, TIDAL, or Qobuz?

Description of the issue

I’m afraid that this is the result of bad metadata from TiVo. We’ll get them to fix it ASAP.

Thanks for the report @Ralf_Karpa .

Oh, not the only one, not for the first time…

How about a lock button for albums data?

It would probably be easier, and less time consuming, to change the metadata preferences for the album:

That does not prevent roon from bringing in lots of unusable data.

This happened to me as well. Same album. Other albums as well…

Does not help the situation…

This is now fixed on our servers. Any bad metadata in your libraries should be cleared out within a week.

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.

What about the questioned lock button. Would help a lot.
