If I wait a few seconds, Discography disappears from the available options.
If I click Discography right away, I get the above message.

Same thing happens whether or not I have albums-on-disk by the artist.
Rebooting the core and client does not help.
All other network services working fine.

“Discography Unavailable. Make sure your storage device is connected or check your Internet connection and streaming services settings.”

This is an intermittent problem. It doesn’t seem to matter if I choose an artist with a lot of albums or just a few.

Note: This is just a report. I do not require support. I’m not interested in endless messing around or being told that it’s my network.
