Description Of Issue
I’m looking for a way to force Roon into picking locally available (on my NAS) versions of tracks instead of going out to Tidal (or any streaming service) to stream them. Is there an option for this or maybe a hack I can implement?
I think what the op is asking for is that when roon radio picks a track it should play the local version if available, but still be able to enjoy intermingled selections from the streaming service. Makes sense to me. Happens all the time that roon streams something that is already in my local library. A waste of bandwidth. I’m not currently limited, so not a huge deal for me, but a lot of people are. And it’s wasteful either way.
Precisely this. For me, it’s more of a sound quality issue rather than a bandwidth issue, however. My local FLAC versions (sometimes vinyl rips) just sound better to me than their Tidal counterparts (I have the $9.99 plan).
I would like to be able to enjoy selections from the streaming services as well, but if the track is already in the local library ( and very often in better quality) Roon should (but doesnt) pick the locally available version.
I’m chiming in just to say I’d like this feature as well. I just started getting into Roon Radio and I love it, but it should definitely pull my versions of songs since I’ve gotten those just how I like them.
