Roon 1.8 (build 778) Feedback

Do these changes (eg focus) make it any easier to see what, from the artist discography, isn’t in the library?

I’m unsubbed at the moment because 1.8 just broke too many things from the way I liked to use Roon in 1.7


Yes, I’ve tried it. Moreover, if you create a new bookmark with the same group of filters, there is no such issue for the last created bookmark. But if you add another one, it doesn’t work for the previous one.


Thats an interesting observation.

I couldnt get it to work with newly created bookmarks either. So something is still not right here…

A post was split to a new topic: Issue loading database with 1.8 build 778

It looks like the Match Any/All option is not available for tags? If I select multiple tags it seems to OR them together.

Lyricists and Librettists are still showing up as composers in Roon… :exploding_head: :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: :japanese_ogre: :poop: :poop: :poop:

Popular tracks in artist view still not removable, movable or collapsible.
Like a lot of users (I’m sure), I’m an album guy. On top of that, I don’t care what’s popular.


I am also still having problems with scrolling position - it is very inconsistent, after viewing an album, sometimes it returns to the position you were at, and sometimes it returns to the top of the list. I can’t seem to figure out what make it scroll back to the top, it is some combination of sorting and filtering… its a very annoying bug.


Looks like it. Boy, if Roon were a restaurant, it would be a great SNL skit:

“My hamburger is undercooked, can you please cook it some more”

[cooked hamburger reappears]

“But then where did my fries go?”

[fries reappear]

“But where are the toppings from the burger?”

[toppings reappear]

“But now the burger is gone?”

[burger reappears]

“But now everything is cold!”

I just think it’s a little bizarre how Roon will add, remove, and modify functions just as though it’s a new piece of software and no one is relying on how it worked yesterday. I’m happy for those that got what they wanted out of this release, but it’s just a little weird for Tag focus logic to be switched from “OR” to “AND” but only for albums and without announcement, then when Roon decides to make both available, it does so not with Tags but with genres and other identifiers, with Tags switched back only to “OR.”

OR what am I missing


Same here, I had hoped the option to collapse (or better yet, completely remove) popular tracks would return. Same for concert info.
Hopefully next time…

Hi Jason_Henry

In Focus, select the topic you want to focus, in this example I choose Genres.
Click on the small ‘down’ arrow ar the right of Genres.

There you can select the Mode: Match All or Match Any



On looking to Albums with FOCUS-Filter
I scroll down and select and play an album
Going back, the Album-view starts at BEGINNING and not at the LAST ALBUM-SELECTION

I would prefer to go back to last Album and not to start at beginning

Where is the “Match All” / “Match Any” for personal tags? [/quote]

It seems like you can’t choose between match any/all with with tags… selecting multiple tags will always “match any”, meaning that it will show everything that it is in any of the tags you select (meaning tag1 OR tag2 OR tag3). There doesn’t seem to be a way to show what is in ALL the tags you select (i.e. tag1 AND tag2 AND tag3).

The match all/any selector is available only on certain things in the Focus pull down, e.g. Performer, Genre, Composer, Production, Label. The other things will only match any, I guess because it wouldn’t make sense to match all with things that are mutually exclusive, e.g. release date, albums type, format, etc.

A nice enhancement would be to put a “Match Any/Matcha All” selector in the box that pops up to focus on Tags.

Right, but I think he is asking about how to select between Match Any/Match All with Tags… I don’t think you can…

The release notes mention:

  • Fixed centering of images in Image viewer

If I look at some of my pictures, then: NO. They are still way off center / off-frame.

Any ideas?

All I see is: Nothing has been fixed here.


You are not alone.


Try it with just your personal tags.

If you haven’t already, add your voice on this topic (vote on OP/comment):


I took that to refer to the artwork for an album in your local files.

??? That would only be a fraction of a solution. Not worthy of mention. The problem is on Artist Pictures, Composer pictures, its everywhere. And I used that Melnikov Pic as an example for the bug report and got told its being looked at…

just updated that original Bug report here:
