I encountered a weird behavior with one artist in my library. I have some albums of the band Humble Pie in my collection. I am pretty sure that this issue wasn’t there in the beginning. When I now browse through my artists I can see the same entry twice:
When I try to merge the artists shown it tells me that both are in fact the same:
I rebooted the server where the core is running on and for the artist Humble Pie it was gone. However, I looked through my artists and have multiple of these. Some can be merged into a single one, but most of them cannot.
I wanted to touch base with some good news, which is that our technical team has been able to reproduce this behavior and we’ve opened up a bug report with our developers. Any additional logs or database dumps is not needed at this moment.
While I can’t say for certain when this bug will be fixed, getting things reproduced in-house is a critical first step, and I will keep this thread up to date as the team passes along feedback and work begins to get this resolved. Thanks again for the report!
I checked our internal tracker and confirmed that this is still with our development team. We will be sure to keep you all updated here once new information is available.
Also, just to clarify, this is about artists with duplicates that can’t be merged and both artists take you to the same artist page. There may be cases where there are actual duplicate artists where a merge would resolve.
We’ve made a change here in Roon 1.6 (Build 416) that we believe should address this behavior. Please update Roon and let us know if you’re still seeing any issues. You can read the full release notes here:
