I installed the update and I have literally no complaints. I like the new ML features. Thanks to the team. It must have been a lot of work.

Fortunately you can remove items from the list so others don’t see :wink:

There is one. It’s Prog-Rock, it’s a Subgenre of Pop/Rock.

Cheers, Greg

Come on this ‘recommended for you’ it’s not that bad. It’s another way of discovering music…at the beginning. I must say though that anyone who does not want it or had enough should be able to switch this off otherwise indeed it may be seen as an intrusion particularly if you listen to the same album repeatedly and same recommendations will appear.

Is the 10.10.5 bug fixed? Safe to upgrade?

“New Releases For You” doesn’t work if i’ve only a local library and without a streaming subscription?

Me too. Not in this lifetime. :no_good_man:t3:

That’s right Daniele. The New Releases are new streaming releases. I would guess that Roon needs the user to have a licence from the streaming service in order to provide the data.

Ha! While I am not a Celine Dion fan, I did listen to her Titanic song the other day… and marveled at her range and the production. Once a year, however, is enough for me! :rofl:

Does Roon not see what you are listening to from your own library and use that information to make recommendations? I don’t know because I don’t own any music. Of course, if you don’t have a streaming service, those recommendations wouldn’t be of much use except to motivate you to buy more music or get a streaming service.

I don’t know. But the New Release information is sourced from the streaming services.

2 days ago I listened by a complete accident to Celine Dion song ( not even the whole song) and now her album is ‘recommended for me’ - not good as I can’t stand her voice. On the other hand Roon recommended to me the new live album of Porcupine Thief which is excellent to know as I like this band but haven listen to it for some time - good.

And I can’t help thinking she lit one of her farts when I see that album cover… lol

Ow! :weary:

Upgraded to 1.7. Looks like a long hot slog through the metadata. This could take awhile. :slight_smile:

I posted this as a seperate topic because I didn’t want it to get lost. But if anyone has any insight, I’d love to hear it.

Don’t think there’s any issue not being allowed to display the data. As I understand it, as a principle, Roon will not show you content that’s not playable, period.

Redundant play button for ‘my live internet radio’.

Before you hit play and it plays

Now you hit the name of the station [which should start playing] then you are taken to another screen to hit play or hit the pull down and hit play.

Why even have a pull down for Play in the first place, esp since the play button is right next to it.

After library scan, it says my Abbey Road is the 2019 remix. It’s a rip of a ~30 year old cd.
