Description Of Issue
I experience three types of problems after the update to 1.8:
- Focusing on artists according to genres may work for a while, but then, all of a sudden, focus stops to work. Genres, Tags, etc. are not shown at all when using focus. In this case, the only thing that helps is to turn off the iPad completely and to restart it again. The attached pictures show the three occurring cases.
The problem occurs on a regular basis, sometimes once an hour. A restart of the iPad is then needed to get going again.
- When I started roon after two days of absence, I could see the overview of artists, but when selecting an artist, no albums were shown. Only the roon symbol was blinking. It took about a minute until the first album appeared. This delay occurred for all artists. Restarting roon remote and the roon core did not help.
This problem was only present in the artists view of MyLibrary. When selecting albums in MyLibrary, albums were immediately listed and music could be played without delay. When going back to the artists view of MyLibrary, the problem was back again.
Before this problem turned up, I had used the function
Library maintenance: Clean up library.
I restored a previous backup, and in fact, the problem disappeared.
This problem occurred only once.
- When playing an album and then returning to the artist’s page, some albums from MyLibrary are sometimes not shown. The missing album may even be the one I just listened to.
This problem has been observed one, but it was reproducible.
In addition, I should mention that the entire database has been re-scanned several times during the last couple of days.
I hope you can help.
