Mac UI washed out

Also seeing this on iMac giving it a very washed out look.
See reference to improve colour handling in change log but this is certainly no improvement.

iMac 27" Late 2009
Graphics ATI Radeon HD 4850 512 MB
macOs High Sierra


Hi @Ceexkay,

Are other remote devices looking okay?

Would you kindly use the directions found here and send us over a set of logs using a shared Dropbox link? Thanks!


Here is dropbox link to

Thanks for prompt response.

Hope this helps


Same as my issue? Got the same iMac. See here.

Thanks for the logs, @Ceexkay! Getting those over to the team and will follow up ASAP when I have their feedback.

Hi @Ceexkay,

The team is still investigating this, but in the meantime, we were hoping you could verify whether or not things in Roon were “too dark” before the update. We had reports of this previously and knowing whether or not you experienced that issue as well will help us determine the next steps here.


I would not say that Roon was too dark before upgrade on my iMac.
I looked at related posts and would not say I was suffering same issue.
Roon 521 looks OK on my MacBook Air 2012

Thanks for the confirmation, @Ceexkay — I’ve let the team know and I’ll be sure to follow up when we have further information about the status of our investigation.

Thank you again for your report. We are investigating your report and a few similar others, can I please request a screenshot of the behavior you’re seeing in Roon so I can attach this to your case notes? Thanks!
