Box set identified correctly - some songs wrong

I have a Box set that was identified correctly, just some files are wrong (and after listening to them, the file data of these files is correct - the Roon data is incorrect). It’s seems that the track length is correct, just the title (and artist) isn’t.
From the 200 songs there are about 15 wrong. In the image you can see there are 3 versions of the album, I already picked the best one).
What’s the best way to correct this? If I just change the title to the title of the file the composers and so on are still incorrect…

Have you tried “Prefer File” in the metadata section Title of the album , that should over ride Roon’s data

The metadata is from a third party source and may well be wrong , it could take a while to correct

Hi Mike,
thank you for your fast reply.
The “Prefer File” solves the problem with the filename, but not the problem(s) with the credit and therefore wrong composition. The song has Performer/Composer from the wrong and the correct file and is linked to the wrong composition.
I can’t set the setting for the credits just for one album/song, can I?
My general setting for Performer and Composer was “merge”. But just Roon, just File and merge - every version seems to have it problems…

Hi @Wolfgang_Schneider,

I think we’ll need to reach out to our metadata provider on this. Can you provide a list of the tracks that appear to be wrong? Please include the Disc #, Track #, Correct Track Title, and Title it’s currently showing in Roon.

Thanks for sending that over, @Wolfgang_Schneider. We’ll get this over to our metadata provider. It’ll take some time for them to correct, but we’ll follow up once we hear back from them. Thanks!

@dylan any news on this?
thank you

Hi @dylan,
any news on this topic?
thank you and best regrds

Hi @Wolfgang_Schneider

I’ll follow up on this with our provider and get back to you soon. Apologies for the continued troubles!

Hi @dylan,
as itˋs been another couple of month I wanted to ask you if there are any news on this?

Hi @dylan
any news on this?
thank you and best regards

HI @dylan
so any news on it? I know you have lots of other topics but it is very disappointing that after one year it is not possible to fix a little box set.

Hi @dylan,
happy new year! Just wanted to know if there are any news on this topic?

sorry, it took me a while to understand that @Dylan does not work for Roon anymore. So first of all all the best for his new adventure (whatever it is).

@beka can you check if there are any news on this topic or should I put this anywhere else?

Hello again @Wolfgang_Schneider

It looks like the track mismatch issue for this release has been corrected by our metadata providers.

Now all you have to do is re-identify the album in Roon. Here’s how to do that:

  • Click the ellipsis on the album page

  • Click edit

  • Click Identify album

  • Search for the album by title if Roon doesn’t recognize the release.

  • Choose version 2 of 2 (see screenshot below)

  • On the next page compare the tracks on your library version to the one presented

  • Click Save

  • Review the metadata again to ensure you selected the correct version.

That should take care of it!

HI @jamie
thank you - it worked.

Hey @Wolfgang_Schneider,

Thank you for the update. I’m happy this fixed it for you.

As an aside - I’ve noticed over the years that these multi-disc oldies boxed sets (which I love) frequently have this problem. The actual track order is often different than what’s reported online. Or, worse yet, there’s multiple versions with different track ordering. :confounded: I don’t know how it happens, but it can definitely be frustrating.
