I have a question about the way that Roon sees new albums/tracks that are added to a watched library.
I have just migrated my music library from my PC to a synology NAS. I also migrated my Roon core from the PC to a new SonicTransporter i5. It took a few days of reading through FAQs and the Roon community forums, but it is mostly all working (phew). One annoyance is that when I view my library by “date added” my albums are shown by the date/time that they were migrated and rescanned at the new location. I like to be able to see my most recently acquired (purchased) albums at the head of the list since I find that I frequently want to play them (at least for a while). Going forward, I realize that when I add a new album to my library it will show up at the head of the list. However, it seems that the acquisition history of previous purchases/rips is lost when you migrate a library.
Under Edit, I found the Roon Metadata Preferences and there are options to change the way that Roon records the “import date” of tracks in an album. I played around with these settings but didn’t see any differences in the order in which the album was listed. I feel I am not understanding what the metadata preferences are doing; I read a couple of topics where the metadata preferences settings were discussed but I still don’t quite get it.
