How can I add a single track to the Queue instead of it immediately playing? Seems we’ve lost feature to add it to the queue - either as next in line or at the bottom of the list.
I have had Roon Core on an iMac connected via Ethernet to ulatraRend and Moon 280D DAC. I have replaced the uRendu with the Innuos Zenith SE Mk ll. I am using the Zenith for Core Audio + Roon Player. Roon was downloaded and activated after deactivating Roon Core on the iMac. Then the source files were auto imported from the iMac to the Zenith. I have spent LOTS of time adding and improving artist artwork and was surprised when none of it showed up when the files moved even though it is the same Roon account. Help?
it does not appear Roon discovers the artist photo files even when they are in the artist/album files
Why aren’t Playlists created on the iMac Roon Core transferring to the new Core?
Sorry…one more thing I forgot. Here you can see a database backup that is dated modified today at 3:49 pm. The problem is that I when I restore it on Roon before logging into the Zen via iPad it gives me only two database dates - both in OCTOBER!! I’m sure its operator error, so I’m looking to you guys to set me strait so I can get on with my instal! on the Zen. Very frustrating.
also note that the Settings > Play Actions customisation allows you to change the action that is triggered by the arrow on the left of a track row.
In the example attached, I dragged “Add Next From Here” to the top of the action list for Playlist Tracks
There was a change end of October. Since then, Roon on Macs stores the backups in a hidden folder. You will find all your backups in Finder when you enable show hidden files. The folder names are still the same, but start with a dot, like .7e2a855…
According to the developers it is a feature not a bug to hide the backup from direct view in Finder. For those that prefer to have control over their files and specifically backups it is a dangerous and confusing change. Just my opinion.
Jeff - I’m sorry, but nothing is working. Using FIND BACKUPS to browse to the two backup locations tells me what I already know. There is nothing in the folders, except two backups from October, and one backup that is empty.
As you suggested, I removed any backup files (all beginning with 7e2…) from the two Roon Backups folders and put them on my desktop. I removed the existing - but now empty - Roon Backups folder from both locations.
I re-established (cleared and re-entered) the location of the backup folders on the backup page. I Forced a back up Now for the folder to be located at Macintosh HD/users/Bruce/Music.
I created the back up. It took some time, but slowly but surely it indicated that 100% of the backup was completed. It indicated the time of 10:30 this morning.
I checked the location, and no backup was there. I used Spotlight search to find any files beginning with 7e2. The only files discovered were the two that I placed on my desktop. I went to Finder/Go/Library and checked files for RAAT, Roon and Roon Bridge. I checked all subfolders, and could find nothing with identifed as "7e2…, nor anything else that was recently modified.
All of this had been done with the Core on my iMac connected, no music playing.
I then closed Roon and re0started the iMac hoping for a Hail, Mary. No new files were in the Backup Folder locations AND the Last Successful Backup no longer indicated I had just completed a Backup!!
Jeff - What is going on here? I’ve got to get this solved so I can get preferences, playlists, merged albums, etc. to the Zenith. So far this is the third day of working almost the entire day to try to make this happen. But as importantly, I need to know Backups are being created for peace of mind.
I backup to a NAS, so I don’t have the hidden files/folder issue you might be having.
I just went to my iMac and told my core to create a backup in a local folder called Roon on a USB 3 AppleFS formatted drive. Within that folder, Roon has created a folder called RoonBackups. That’s the backup folder, and the one you should care about even if it doesn’t seem to have anything in it.
After the backup was complete I used the “Find Backups” function and pointed it at the above mentioned RoonBackups folder and it listed the newly created hidden backup inside just fine.
I have created a new backup on my iMac. Following the advice here, I used Find Backups to browse the folder. Even though the display said Empty Folder, once I went ahead and selected the folder, the backup appeared. Hallelujah!
Next challenge: Now I need to restore the backup on a separate Core on a different device using a remote.
I believe I am supposed to go to the Roon Log In page on the iPad, but before selecting one of the 2 Cores to use I need to hit the Restore a Backup link. If this is the right approach, here’s where I get lost.
I’m only seeing a Dropbox destination opportunity and don’t know the info needed to add a Network Share.
Is Network Share Location the iMac IP address (with a smb:// prefix?
Is the user name and password for the iMac or Router?
