Description of Issue


Using the search I’ve noticed that when searching for ‘Dave’, hoping to find this Dave I’m not taken to a screen of that artist but instead am taken to an artist page of ‘other’ Dave’s. So I have some Sam & Dave albums in my library, so those appear. When I step into the Discography it appears like all Dave’s are being pulled from both Tidal and Qobuz and shown.

The same happens when I try and access the Artist page via an album page, too. The behaviour is the same on both Android and iPadOS.


Short answer is Roon makes a hash of it. Same or similar behaviour with incorrect metadata already reported for Cream, Bread, Genesis, Heart etc.
