Description Of Issue
I delayed upgrading to MacOS Catalina until Roon released the new build claimed to fix the external storage issue. After upgrading, I have not been able to reliably listen to music via Roon due to multiple problems.
Tidal “Network Problems” error message. This error message comes and goes with Core re-boots.
Albums are sometimes visible (both local and Tidal) and sometimes not.
When albums are visible in Album View, going to Artist View results in a spinning “waiting icon”
In Album Library View, sometimes a local album is displayed but clicking on it results in an error message “This album was not found”
Settings / Storage sometimes has an error message “iTunes Library XML not found in /Users/…”
In Album Library View, some Tidal albums will show tracks etc but will not play. Error message. “This track is not currently available from Tidal”. Sometimes (not often) Tidal tracks will play.
I have rebooted the Core several times.
