DCS Bartók , newest Mac mini, Catalina software connected by Ethernet to router. Backed up by time machine to My Book external drive.
Description of Issue
Roon cannot see my Music folder on Mac. Up until last week was using same setup on an older Mac with Lion, all basically worked well. Set up new Mac and transferred Music file from My Book to the Mac which was then using latest release BEFORE Catalina, did not try to access Music file so don’t know if Roon saw it or not.
Then downloaded Catalina and noticed that there were now two music folders, Music and Music Copy.
Apple Support says Roon made the copy folder. This new Music Copy file shows up as shared with Roon able to read and write in sharing under system preferences, and Roon also has read and write permissions on pop up from right clicking on Music Copy and selecting get info.
The original Music folder also shows in Sharing with Roon having reading and writing but does not appear with permissions to share in the get info pop up. I cannot add it as I do not have necessary permission.
There are two different locations and extensions and Sharing says computers on my local net work can access me at fred.local. My previous successful path was: \fred.local\music.
Now, the Music folder shows where: Macintosh HD > System > Applications with the extension Music.app grayed out. The Music copy info shows Where: Macintosh HD > Applications. The extension is Music copy.app. How do I indicate correct path in Storage in Roon app for watched file.
Have tried many combinations without success.
Also, strangely, internet radio only seems to play from one speaker. Tidal selections are fine from both speakers.
Hope this is not too confusing - looking forward to your response.
