iTunes library is on an external Lacie hard drive (1.5 Gigs)
Roon: latest version
I have 3 problems:
(i) I cannot import iTunes playlists - I will check this blog to see if I can get sorted out;
(ii) some files do not show their cover art (although perfectly apparent in iTunes) - have tried to change pictures but I still get a grey blank;
(iii) when playing back several albums in sequence, the album cover does not switch to show the new album actually being played.
I have split your post into a new topic as to better assist here. Can you please let me know if you have been able to import your iTunes playlist using the instructions on the previous thread or are you still running into issues?
For the cover art being blank and album covers not switching properly with new tracks, can you please provide some screenshots of examples for this behavior?
Regarding the import of playlists from iTunes, I’m working on it but seems ton be a real issue.
Regarding the cover art, here are screenshots of Roon and iTunes showing the song “baddiel & skinner & lightning seeds - three lions”. The cover art does not appear in Roon - there are a few cases like this.
With regard to album covers that do not switch properly with new tracks, here is another screenshot. Jacques Louissier came on after “The best of barbara dennelien”, and the cover art did not change.
It is possible that the album cover you posted a screenshot of is the one that Roon has retrieved from our metadata services. You can manually set the cover art for your album in Roon’s Album Editor by Right-clicking the album -> Press the 3-dot dropdown menu near the top -> Edit -> Edit Album -> Add Album Artwork. This page should look like this:
As for the album that is not showing up, can you please check Roon Settings -> Library -> Skipped Files and see if it is listed there by any chance? Is the folder that you have saved the newly ripped album in part of your Watched Folders in Roon -> Storage? Please let me know.
