When I search for an artist (whilst in Album View) , e.g. Eric Clapton, and select the requested artist in the search results, I get the Artist view as usual but only for 1 second.

Immediately however, the screen is refreshed and the Discography tab is dissappearing.

Identical behaviour on my Windows 11 PC and my iPad Roon Remote,


Hi Dirk,

Have you tried rebooting your Core? If you recently updated to a new Roon version, I’ve found that doing an extra Core reboot can help things.

Of course I did reboot my Core and Remotes after the updates.

However case can be closed as the problem has disappaered.
Quite some disappearing acts this evening :slight_smile:

Probably a glitch in Roon’s infrastructure, as I did not change anything.

Topic can be closed.


@Dirk_De_Taey, thanks for reporting this and there does appear to be an intermittent issue here. We’ll have a look and see if we can get to the bottom of it.
