Complex behavior, but I’m pretty sure this description is accurate. It’s repeatable. Fairly recent, I would say a few weeks, but I was offline for a few weeks before that — likely most recent build.
On my iPad, I bring up the Now Playing page, and I can follow the links: album pages, artists, composers.
But if I have been doing something else, like reading on the web (or writing this!), when I come back to Roon the links dont work, it hangs with the Roon logo, “Loading…” Only way to break out of it is to shut down the Roon app (which isn’t easy on an iPad!) and restart it.
(Nothing wrong with playback.)
And here is a really arcane case: if I click the Close X in the upper left, it sometimes works and sometimes not. Specifically, if the previous location was something else in a Roon, like another album or artist, I can close NP and get back to it. This works even if the previous page was the same album, reached through some other navigation. But if I have tried to get to the album or artist through an NP link, it is as if that page is poisoned, I can’t get to it through the X either.
Thanks for reaching out! We currently have a ticket open with our development team for this behavior. I can’t give any specific timeframes, but we will be sure to keep everyone updated here as soon as there is new information available.
I got very often of endless “loading album” problem while remote from iPad/iPad Pro/iphone Xs Max devices.
This problem happens after switching from other apps back to Roon app, or waking up the devices back to Roon app. The app loss control of going back to track list page and freezing on “loading album”. If I wipe out and re-running roon app then it works again.
Any way to improve this problem?
roon server --> QNAP HS-453DX NAS
roon core & output–> Win 10 PC --> DAC
roon control --> iphone Xs max / ipad pro / ipad mini
I can also confirm if this is the same issue by taking a look at the diagnostics from your devices. To do this, can you please reproduce the issue once more and let me know the exact local time in your country (e.g. 6:11PM) that it occurs at? Once I know that info I can enable diagnostics for your account and take a look to see if this is the same class of issue that has been reported and is actively being investigated by the dev team.
Thanks for confirming that error state, this does indeed appear to be the same issue. I have gone ahead and moved your post over to the main thread for better tracking, once we have addressed this issue someone from the support team will be sure to update you here.

Thank you for the report. We currently have an active ticket with the dev team regarding this behavior, so more information is not necessary at this time. As soon as I have any updates to share, myself or someone from the Roon team will be sure to update this thread.
We’ve made a change here in Roon 1.6 (Build 416) that we believe should address this behavior. Please update Roon and let us know if you’re still seeing any issues. You can read the full release notes here:
