I have been using a Roon Nucleus Rev. B. with Roon Remote on my IMac and also on an iPad. For several weeks, Roon has been showing the spinning circle icon which, when clicked, brings up the message, “Metadata Improver: Halted. Roon needs a software update.” I think this issue was first noted a short time after updating the Roon software. Roon Core in the Nucleus is Version 1.7 (build 667), and Roon Remote (in my iMac) is the same version. This issue occurs with both Room Remote in my iMac and the Roon app in my iPad. Roon is connected to a Linksys Velop mesh router. My WiFi download speed is around 100 Mbps, and if I connect my iMac to the router via ethernet, I get a download speed of 178 Mbps. I have subscriptions to both Tidal and Qobuz.
I have tried the various measure suggested for this problem (which, frankly, appear to be shooting blindly), to no avail. I have changed ethernet cables. I have rebooted the Nucleus. I have reinstalled the Roon software. Etc.
The problem has gotten worse. Early on, I noted a problem in adding albums: it took a long time, and often the album graphics did not appear. Roon Search also took a long time. I then noted that Searches seemed to have stopped showing any new results, but were only showing albums previously found.
Yesterday, I went to Settings > Setup >Configure Roon OS devices and successfully reinstalled the Operating System (Version 1.0 (build 227)) and I restarted Room Server Software (Version 1.7 (build 667)). The problems persisted.
I next clicked the Reset button for Roon Database & settings. The initial result was “Error / Settings and databases could not be reset. Please try again, or contact support. (“status”: “Failure”, “exitcode” :2).”
Networking showed Ethernet. I clicked the Rest button and got, “Success / Settings and databases have been reset successfully.”
I then got the message, “Remote Connection / Waiting for Remote Core.” However, I now am unable to log in with Roon Remote, which is needed to access the Core in my Nucleus. I am using the same email address and password that works when I log into my Roon account on the Roon web site, but that log in is not working when I try to re-establish the Nucleus as the location of Roon Core. The login fails, and I get a message, “Network error. Please check your internet connection.”
My internet connection is working. The mesh router used with Nucleus can be connected to my iMac and my iMac then accesses the Internet via this connection.
So, I now have two issues: (1) What do I need to do to get Nucleus recognized by Roon Remote? (2) After getting Nucleus recognized, if the Metadata Improver issue persists, then what?
Thanks in advance.
