Description Of Issue
Been testing this for a while; not sure if it’s a 1.8 issue, but I only noticed it recently.
Let’s say i have two of the same album in my Roon library. One from tidal/qobuz, and one I ripped from a CD.
If I search for that album, ONLY the streaming version is found in my library. Even when I click on the album, and look at VERSIONS, my local file is not found.
If I DELETE the streaming version, then my local file shows up.
One thing I could imagine is if the local version is a “regular” release, and the streaming version is some kind of deluxe or anniversary release, like, say “Workingman’s Dead”. The 50th Anniversary version (qobuz/tidal) shows up in a search, but my local/ripped file is nowhere to be found. It only shows me the “top result.” My local version is NEVER in that top result, and it’s not listed in “other versions” unless I delete the tidal/qobuz version.
I can furnish screenshots if necessary, but wondering if this is a known issue, and how to remedy.
yeah, i tested again with just the basic versions of Workingman’s Dead.
If I add another version to my library, ONLY THAT VERSION will then show in my library. My ripped version goes away.
The only way I can find it is to go to tags (where I’ve tagged all ripped albums as “CD RIP”) and then filter for Workingman’s Dead. Then it shows up in my library – but the streamed version doesn’t. It’s available, but it’s not in my library.
Again, no idea if this is a 1.8 anomaly, but here we are.
Versions are duplicates. Only the primary version is visible, the other ones are hidden. Search and focus can only show you the primary version - hidden albums can’t be found or shown. There is no special treatment for streamed albums versus local ones in your library. Search can also return streaming albums though, but they are possibly not the ones in your library (see: What’s the difference between albums in my library and albums outside of my library?)
If this is not what you want, got to settings and turn on “Show hidden tracks and albums”.
These are not duplicates (10 track versus 11 track album) you must have grouped them together manually.
These are not duplicates (10 track versus 11 track album). So each one is primary for the release it represents. You can also manually group them together like you did with the Doors album if you wish to see the same result.
I had this issue too, with a small number of albums. They were not hidden, but entering search terms returned inconsistent results. For this Album I have Qobuz 24/96, there are TIDAL versions available, and I have a local 24/96 version.
When I enter ‘BWV 45’ I see the Qobuz and TIDAL versions.
When I enter ‘lebens licht’ I see only the local version.
I clicked around on metadata until I found a common piece of metadata that returned both albums in the same screen (under the Albums section).
Now the key: I enter ‘bwv 45’ (my most familiar / easiest search expression), and get the correct album as the Top Result, with both the local and Qobuz versions shown under Library versions, and Qobuz + TIDAL in their respective sections.
update: I decided I didn’t need the Qobuz version any more so I deleted it.
And waddya know, I’m back to the original problem: ‘bwv 45’ returns only the qobuz album, and I have to enter the other search term. So this is a metadata issue I suppose; I cannot figure out why Roon will not return the local album with ‘bwv 45’ search term when that is in the title. Giving up.
