Same thing here. Should I open a support thread with more details?

Description Of Issue

“Metadata Improver: Halted. Roon needs a software update.” message; new music isn’t identified. I have powered down the core, router and switch but the issue persists.


I’m seeing the same message. I switch back and forth between 2 cores and recently (maybe since last update, not sure), I’m able to begin playback without unauthorizing my other core and play music for some time. Qobuz screens won’t load, Tidal screens won’t load, but the tracks will play. At some point, I’ll look at Roon again, and see the message to switch cores. That’s when I’ll get the error message described above. Restarting Roon clears it. Please let me know if there is additional data that might helpful to you in sorting this out.

Hi @CostasD,

Thanks for the details here. I’ve enabled diagnostics on your account and the team is looking into this. I’ll be sure to update you as soon as they’ve provided further feedback.

No spinning disc since installing the 528 build. I just added an album and it immediately identified it.
