After finalizing the build 1211 update, a number of albums were added unexpectedly to My Library.
After some research, these albums seem to be all ‘duplicates’.
No ‘added’ albums were displayed in the Home - Recent Activity - Added section.

Now the strange thing:

I have added this album to My Library on January 23th. It’s format is FLAC 44,1 kH2/24bit .
After the build 1211 update, a second version is added by Roon???, showing format ‘Qobuz’ .

Where is this coming from and how to detect these duplicates? I was lucky spotting this one, but no clue how many of these ‘Qobuz’ format duplicates I have.

Extra info:
If I go to Roon - Albums - Focus - Format - Qobuz, I see all the Qobuz versions in My Library.

Normally, I use Focus - Storage Location for that.

But all the ‘Qobuz version’ Albums do have a wellknown format:

So why are these known formats not used instead of Qobuz? The albums are in My Library, so the information is all there.

My album count went up, but I don’t know what was added. I’m on Early Access.

EDIT: Qobuz added several Allan Taylor albums that must have been removed some time in the past.

I estimate that my album count went up with about 30.

Can’t say I am seeing this myself.

Hi @Dirk_De_Taey ,

I checked on my end and I am seeing the correct format show up on my end. Can you please confirm if you are still seeing this missing on your end?

Hi Norris

Still the same over here - 2254 albums in Qobuz format when looking at Albums - Focus - Format.

And the strange thing is that every individal album shows the expected Flac format.

Dirk

You realy dont see Qobuz under format its here plain as can be

While we re here why is Live and Compilation album filter in Other and no under Albm Types as they are album types?

Yeah, I’ve got FLAC format and Qobuz format. My Roon says 1952 FLAC and 3357 Qobuz. All of the Qobuz should be FLAC. Nearly all of my 5312 albums are FLAC. My Qobuz library count says 3323. None of these numbers correlate and it makes me wonder where Roon is getting this data. It’s clearly not what they think it is.
