We’ve conducted a thorough search of our metadata this morning and can’t find DNOC associated with Back in Black by AC/DC anywhere in our index. This seems to be some kind of local library interaction. There is a cover version of the album in Roon by DNOC that your album could be getting matched with.
Can you please use the re-identify function on the album page and tell us if that seems to resolve things? Thanks!
A button of this kind can’t be created for this purpose. Roon metadata is continuously updated in the background, as additional metadata becomes available it will be added. This is intended behavior when you’re using Roon metadata.
In this case, it appears that the track times of your Back in Black album don’t match those in our database for AC/DC - Back in Black. They may be closer to the times for DNOC’s version.
If you’re using Roon metadata for that album that would explain why it’s changing to display DNOC. You can use your file metadata for this album instead of Roon’s, that will prevent the album artist from changing.
Go to the Album page, then click the ellipsis, then edit. Click Metadata Preference and click Prefer file for Title, and Album Artist. as well as any other metadata information you want to use file tags for instead of Roon’s tags. Then click Save, that should prevent the album from reverting to DNOC in the future.
I did the above recommendation. After today’s rescan initiated by roon, it was reverted back to DNOC. The 2003 version of the album is never touched by this annoying update, only the 2020 remaster. The metadata of both albums look the same (with a metadata editor).
We’re sorry that you’re still dealing with this after choosing to use file tags. Does a manual band name credit change make a difference here?
Would you mind uploading the album to our media uploader so we can investigate this on our end? Please upload here and use your Community user name for the zipped file.
There is a chance that what you’re seeing could be caused by elements of old metadata in your library that retained DNOC as an alias for AC/DC. We’ve seen this previously in just a few scattered cases. If that is the cause here as well I can confidently say that it will be corrected permanently in a larger dev project we’re undertaking.
Unfortunately, it means that there’s not a way currently to overcome what you’re experiencing and that the fix will be longer in coming.
We apologize for any inconvenience and hope that a manual band credit change fixes this. We’ll be watching for your media files so we can determine if the problem is being caused by the aliasing issue I described.
the current problem is, that I already edited everything and it is stable when doing a re-identify. So, currently there’s no DNOC happening. I thought about the past occurrences when this happened. Always when I edited the metadata to my needs it was stable for several weeks. It changed when a “new database version” was installed by roon update, but only when about 1/3 of my albums vanished from my library and with an hours long run of identification came back one after the other (incl. artists, etc.). I have no clue why roon is doing this at all.
Thank you for the follow-up. I’m glad to hear that the album has successfully been edited to AC/DC. Please let me know if this changes with the next update. If you’ve manually changed it and adjusted the album settings to prefer file tags you should be good now.
