After the last update I’m having a problem with Roon splitting the same artist in two and in one case not showing all the albums by one artist. The artists being split are Count Basie, Michael Martin Murphey, Richard Bennett (the Bluegrass guitarist not the rock guitarist), Richard Thompson, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and Sting. When the splits occur they show for example 3 albums under one Richard Thompson and 19 under the second Richard Thompson out of the total 22 albums I have by Richard Thompson. With the exception of Richard Bennett (Bluegrass) the artist data is the same for both listings.
In the case of Sting not only is he being split into two artists but only one of the eight albums I have by him is showing up under the Artist category and it is the same album for both listings. All eight albums I have by Sting do show up under the Album category.
For Richard Bennett all seven albums are by the Bluegrass flatpick guitar Richard Bennett but Roon has been splitting them in two assigning some to the Bluegrass Richard Bennett and some to the Rock/Pop Richard Bennett.
There does not seem to be any pattern in when these incorrect changes occur and the splits don’t occur for all the listed artists at the same time. Sometimes only two or three will be split other times it will be 5 out of 6 are split.
Needless to say it’s a pain to correct these errors only to have them show up again in a day or two. There may be more instances of this happening but these are the ones I’ve identified so far.
All the music files are stored on a Synology NAS and I’m using ROON ROCK on a NUC7i5 for my core.
Edit: I thought I should add that with the exception of Richard Bennett using the ‘Merge Artist’ function doesn’t do anything, I’m guessing because both listings have the same artist data. Second restoring from a correct backup appears to trigger the incorrect changes, they seem to occur at random as well but I’ve tried restoring from backup twice and both times it triggered the incorrect changes happening after the restore. Finally all my files are either FLAC or DSD.
