Let me explain what I want by giving an example:
I’m listening to Juliette Hurel playing Bach’s partita for solo flute and am particularly interested in the Track Credits, so I have that view (is there a special name for these kinds of tabs within the Now Playing screen?) open:
(By the way: just waiting until the next track, as during normal listening sessions, begins gives the same result!)
At this stage I have to click the “Track Credits” icon again to see who are playing now:
I’m very sorry, @Tim_Rhodes, but I’m afraid you did not read what I wrote. The customization you show in your screenshots only determines whether a certain view is shown (if available, that is; sometimes the Track Credits icon is not even shown) in the Now Playing screen and in which order the icons are shown.
What it does NOT make possible is tell the remote client to stick with a chosen view whenever the track is changed.
Thanks for pointing this out for me, @Tim_Rhodes.
But I really don’t want to change the default mode of the Now Playing screen. That would make absolutely no sense. I just want the mode that I choose at any point in time to not change with the change of track!
Well, maybe my words were too strong, but what I meant to say is that I like a solution to be permanent and not a so-so workaround. I hope to use Roon for many many hours to come and want those to be as agreeable as possible. And how hard can it be for Roon to fix this? It’s not as if they have to dig very deep to find an obscure bug. It’s just a setting we’re talking about…
