Description Of Issue
My library reports 35,594 total albums on the home page. However, when selecting My Albums, Roon reports only 12,653 albums. We can start by wondering why there is such a big difference.
This plays out when doing a Focus for multichannel albums. Under Channel Layout in Focus, Roon reports seeing 5 – Quad albums, 158 – 5.0 albums, 452 – 5.1 albums, 2 – 6.1 albums and 1 – 7.1 album, for a total of 618 albums. When saving that Focus set to a bookmark, and then clearing all Focus and selecting the same bookmark, I get 617 albums. We can further wonder what happened to the 1 missing album.
But, 1 album is not the issue. When I do a search of my music library on my NAS, searching just for DSF Multi albums, I get 706 albums – and that’s not counting quad or FLAC 5.1 albums. Adding those in, my NAS reports 1,161 total multichannel albums.
As an example, Focus finds three Elton John DSF multichannel albums, but doesn’t see the additional six Elton John DSF multichannel albums on my NAS. Nevertheless, I can find the additional six albums in Roon by selecting Elton John as artist, going to the album in question and picking the multichannel version from there. Billy Joel is another good example. Focus sees no DSF multichannel Billy Joel albums. Yet, my NAS has all three of the Billy Joel multichannel albums, which I can find in Roon by searching for Billy Joel as the artist, picking the album of choice and selecting the DSF multichannel version.
Thinking the bookmark might be corrupt, I removed it and re-saved it. Same outcome.
This has been an issue the entire time I’ve been a Roon subscriber (several years and a good number of Roon versions and builds). I think it’s time to resolve this!
Thanks for the assistance, Team Roon. Cheers. JCR
