Description Of Issue

I’m tired of scrolling through all the nonsense…
I used to have a waveform on my playing track progress bar now I only have a line with a slider. Maybe I have inadvertently changed a setting…but where is the setting ??

Without knowing what system you have hard to know.

Hi @Carl_Wodke,

Can you confirm that both your Core and remote are both updated to the latest version? Can you share a screenshot of Settings > About?

Hi @Carl_Wodke,

I have reverted the sections you did not complete, so you can see them once more.
Can you please complete those, it’s important … so that the Roon support are best able to give advice and resolve the issue a quickly as possible.

In the meantime I’d recommend checking that all your Roon Core and all Roon Control devices are running the latest version of Roon. (Build 571 is the latest.)

Also, could you confirm this is happening when playing a local file (rather than a streamed one)?

I sincerely apologise for not providing vital information & data.
I have just enrolled on a basic technical authoring & novel writing course. So I will be back soon to clarify things on completion…
In the meantime could someone please define the correct Roon name for the line at the bottom of the screen that displays time / progress during play. I would hate to waste time by not using the correct jargon.

Ok so I guess from that you don’t want any help. No problemo.
