I see this in the way that if you would select shuffle in album browser, then these blocked albums wouldn’t play (because they are blocked, they would fall out of the list of almbums to shuffle) but I think Roon Radio is track based so I fear you have to block every track to achieve that what you want. But ban is heavy as it affects not only Roon Radio. That’s why the ROONRADIOBAN file tag was introduced in Roon (1.3 if I remember correctly).
Maybe a focus on format – depending on where you start at and what you want to achieve – can also do the trick for you.
But - there is one thing that could also be the issue but I cannot verify as I’m not at home at the moment:
While radio using the “now playing” screen and hitting the album link at least leads to exactly this version. I’m not sure if I’ve double checked if it is actually playing this version. Could double check later if you want me to.
So either the bug is
a) it’s playing the wrong (banned) album
b) a wrong link leading to the banned album
Hope you are able to reproduce either behaviour at your end.
I’ve passed this along to the technical team to look into. If it does occur again for you definitely let us know, though, and we can enable diagnostics for that time. More data always helps when it comes to tracking issues like this down
No need to wait and purposefully try to get it to happen, of course, just if you happen to notice it while listening normally.
I checked our internal tracker and it appears that there has been some work done to improve this behavior that is currently in testing. I can’t say for sure when this will become available, but I’ll be sure to follow up with you once we have more information.
