I’m using Roon with Qobuz, but the search is crap in Roon but good using the Qobuz app.
Can I improve it?
Quantify what you mean by crap!
when you try searching for an artist or song not much if anything comes up , i tried the stranglers
nothing , phil .
Do you have any Stranglers in your library? I ask because a search of Big Audio Dynamite today heralded zero artists. As soon as I favourited from Qobuz the results were as expected … this isn’t normal behaviour, so there may be an issue.
No results are returned for artists not in library. Can anyone else confirm.?
This does seem to be the case , i searched in qubuz for the stranglers and it found them , i added them to favourites , and now roon has found the stranglers . phil.
I am getting quite inconsistent results. For example, I do get a search result returned with some artists where I have no albums in my library. It looks as if roon will return a search result for any of these cases.
- You have an album for the artist in your library.
- You have an appearance for the artist in a compilation in your library.
- You have a “similar to” link for the artist to another artist in your library.
There are probably a few other cases making search behaviour appear quite hit and miss.
Just tried the jam nothing, then magazine nothing, then the sex pitols nothing, the only way i can find these artists is to use roon radio and keep loading albums eventually you get the band your after , phil.
This isn’t normal behaviour. Not so long ago I created a series of playlists based on This Is Uncool: The 500 Greatest Singles Since Punk and Disco. I found all tracks available in TIDAL using Roon regardless of whether the artist appeared in my library.
So this seems to be a regression.
Something wrong with Roon in your case not connecting home to their servers. I can search for all those no issues here in the UK.
The Jam: 16 Albums
Magazine: 14 Albums
Sex Pistols: 46 Albums
As @CrystalGipsy says, there must be something amiss with your ROON instance, and that’s disturbing!
This thread should probably be moved over to #support in order for ROON-team to be notified for help.
Moved to support.
Make sure to describe your network configuration/topology, including any networking hardware currently in use, so they can have a clear understanding of how your devices are communicating.
Try again as I’m getting artist results returned now.
Wondering if it was related to this …
Tried it again , still the same not returning any artist searched for , it does seem to find the ones in my library or favourites , phil.
Can you share some screenshots of what you’re seeing here showing poor search results so we can take a closer look? Thanks!
Hi dylan , i use a 7 lenovo tablet as a remote , i can take a picture with my phone , but how do i get it on here , phil.
