Description of Issue

The discographies of most of my artists are failing to come up; it hangs on the first screenshot below for a minute or two, before giving way to the second screenshot. Searching by album seems to work, as does playback when I’m able to bring up an album. Locally stored music is on a drive connected to my Roon core’s motherboard by SATA. I’m not having this problem with all artists, but I am with most.


Have you restarted the core machine. if so then also restart it again along with you networking gear including the router / modem and any other equipment in the chain.

also what are your DNS settings? Are you including 1.1.1.1 or 8.8.8.8 as often times ISP DNS can be somewhat questionable. Make sure no VPN is active too.

You missed listing your OS and Roon build

Oops: I’m running Windows 10 Pro, Roon build 831. DNS is set to 8.8.8.8 preferred, alternate 8.8.4.4. But the problem seems to have solved itself, in any case: Iron Maiden and all other artists are now displaying their discographies. Thanks for the help! I’ll probably be back at some point. :slight_smile:

The problem last night was a partial outage of Roon’s backend servers. After several hours of problems felt at least in the Americas, late at night the issue was resolved. Nothing wrong on your side.
