Roon radio doesn't play complete classical pieces

I’ve been a Roon user for a couple months and I generally have been enjoying how it works with my music system (a Windows pc and other connected devices). I do have one annoyance that perhaps someone can help me to fix. I am a classical music and jazz fan. After I play a classical piece from my own library or Qobuz, Roon radio will kick in. Great so far, however… My big annoyance is that Roon radio only plays movements of pieces and not full pieces-- I find this frustrating and disappointing, especially for a product that bills itself as being intended for the music cognoscenti. Is there some way in Roon’s settings where I can adjust Roon radio to play complete pieces and not truncated bits of what should be complete works? Today it was very jarring and frustrating to hear just one movement each of Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition” and Mozart’s Symphony No. 40. I had to stop listening. This is not what i was expecting. Thanks in advance to anyone who can assist.

Hi @Alan_Edelstein and welcome to the club.

What you describe is the way Roon Radio is currently designed. It plays tracks, not compositions. One reason why I am not really using this feature, as you say for classical music this makes limited sense.

I would suggest to move this item to the Feature Request section as it has ended up down in „Uncategorized“. you can do this as follows:

Behind the title of this post you will find a pencil :pencil2: symbol to edit the title. Select this. Then just below the title you can choose the category under which the post should appear. here select first „ Roon software“ and in the nxt box „Feature Request“. Then press the check box to save.

Your post will then show up in the feature request section. :+1:

As a workaround, instead of using Radio, use a playlist. Select a wide swatch of albums or compositions, then Play Shuffle. This will give you some of the randomness of a radio, but with the complete compositions.
