Roon 1.6 Feedback Thread

Can’t please all I suppose - but you seem to be in the minority . Ho hum - I love it

Have they removed the ‘Next Up’ info as well … I hadn’t noticed that.
Why would they do that?
I can’t imagine what they think a "now Playing’ screen is for.

Radio update is the bomb!

Love that it now goes outside the local library into Tidal without having to first include albums and tracks in the library.

This makes the “discovery” aspects 100x more useful. Have already found a handful of albums to add to the library in just a couple of hours of Radio.

The coming next is there with options to accept or decline, if declined it asks why to fine tune radio

I know, right? Please developers. Please give us the “Now Playing” option with “Next up” to show larger artwork.

Oh man, I think Roon needs to bring in a UI specialist. Not sure what’s going on here, and improvements to the UI is the thing I was looking forward to most, esp the now playing screen. Why feature a giant picture of the artist and not an expanded view of the album cover? A lot of artists in my library don’t have an associated pic (they all have the album cover pic though), so one ends up with a big black or gray screen and tiny lp cover down in the corner. Total fail. Give us total view options please, and not just options for what info is displayed.

Qobuz integration is nice - if one was actually able to sign up for it in the US. In time I’m sure…

Also, is there a way to start radio without skipping to the end of the que?

At least one of the reasons the duplication is happening may be that Roon is assigning a different album title to an album when it is coming from Qobuz to the one that it is assigning when the same album is in my local library. For instant the Christian Gerhaher/Gerold Huber album of Schumann songs entitled ‘Frage’ is recognised by Roon as having the title ‘Frage’ when it has been imported from Qobuz, but with the title ‘Schumann: Frage’ when it was imported from my library. In both cases I have the preference for Album title set to Roon (although previously it was set to take the album title from the metadata in my local file).

I understand it is rolling out by time zone.

Same here, iPad Pro 11 and portrait isn’t working for me. Do we need to do anything to enable it?

Roon on iPad 12.9" supports portrait. Roon on the 11" does not.

click on a track or the down arrow next to the play buttons on albums/artists.

The group changes all the time. We require a lot of time from the alpha/beta team, and not everyone can provide it. Unsure why you think it’s stuck to the “original” ones only, but it’s not the case at all.

thought the very same, at first
can’t really check if that’s the case as, as I wrote, I have hundreds of purchased albums (been buying from Qobuz since it’s there: 6-7 years at least I believe) but… looks all purchases have been added anew :roll_eyes:

The DSP function for each device is accessed by pressing the volume icon next to the device and then selecting DSP. (There are other ways to access it, too…)

Thank you Roon guys, you made my day! especially with Qobuz in!
(I’ll be happy again when you release a native linux controller although i’m doing fine with windows controller on wine)
