Bug: track display

Roon 2, 1353 on 13.6.1

Is the faint second three-digit (track number) a function of the fact that up to ‘9’ allows space, but ‘10’ and above does not?

A bug?

Looks like one.

It does, doesn’t it.

Is it possible that it hasn’t been noticed and/or reported before?

If not, how to report it now, please?

I guess move it to Feedback and pray. We are being assured that Roon staff read every topic in Feedback

Read and act upon are very different things. Still no fix for comments in sharing albums in iOS been some time since I reported and others.

That’s why I said pray and not „if you post there it will be fixed“


Thanks. So moved.

Not a big problem. But would be nice to see it fixed.

As I say, just strange that this seems to be the first time anyone’s noticed it :slight_smile:

What is this album? I’m curious as to how you have more than 100 tracks on a disc…

BTW, I can confirm that this bug exists - I’ve just looked at my “album” of the In Our Time podcast series (which has more than 1,000 episodes), and indeed, there it is (just never noticed it before)…

Many ‘Classical’ collections have that many (and more) tracks in total.

This one is 13 CDs.

Thanks for picking up. Is it possible to put it on a fix list, please?

No use asking me - I am not a staff member of Roon Labs. However, all Feedback posts are read by the Roon Labs team.

Understood. Thanks!

Whoever moved it , it’s now in @support


I moved it there because another thread suggested that was likely to be more effective.

If that was wrong, please feel free to move it back!

Thanks :slight_smile:

There are no guarantees anyway. I would have thought it’s enough if they read it as they are supposed to in feedback.

Thanks, Mario. Moved back!

While that’s true, the usual convention for numbering multi-disc sets is to start each disc with track 1 rather than continue incrementing the track numbers across disc boundaries…

Does Presto do this as standard?

Thanks for following up; and for advising me of the conventions for Roon!

Would you say that I should always follow that convention and split my sets of FLAC files into how they were presumably almost always released as individual CDs? Is that considered Roon best practice?

I have tagged sets like this both ways over time.

Sometimes the original distribution across physical disks is no longer readily apparent. So - on those occasions - I have assumed it would be artificial to divide them that way for Roon. Especially when a single work may actually cross 'CD’s; and so when it would make more sense not to split a set!

But if Roon expects and ‘benefits’ from being imported the way you suggest, I’ll gladly think again :slight_smile: .

Yes, I’d say that the majority of Presto listings (and indeed the FLAC files; and often - seemingly apparently arbitrarily - divided into multiple zips) are numbered from one to nnn regardless.

As I say, it’s not impossible to hunt down the ‘original’ - say in AllMusic etc - and add them in my tagger (Yate). Should I be doing that, do you think, please?

For multidisc sets, this article gives Roon’s preferences:

For general file tag best practice:

Thanks very much, Geoff, for those two articles.

The first makes it plain:

1. Accurate track numbers, (meaning each disc starts with Track 1)
2. Accurate media numbers (meaning each disc is numbered Disc X of Y, with Y being the total number of discs in the set)

I can see I have some work to do.

Although it would be nice to think that the 3-digit bug were solved eventually, it’s easy to see why it has come about: no single ‘CD’ (and corresponding set of files) is ever likely to have more than 99 individual works/movements/numbers, is it.

So - much appreciated :slight_smile: !
