PS Audio Directstream DAC via USB
Description of Issue
Return to scroll position is still not fixed on my iPad. If I pick an album out of the middle of the list, play it and then do something else on my iPad while it’s playing, when I come back to Roon I get 1 or 2 seconds of a Roon animation and then when I back button to my albums it goes back to the beginning, not where I left it. This is not a recent problem, I first brought this up on the forum 4 years ago so it’s occurred across multiple operating systems and Roon versions.
Thank you very much for getting in touch about this - I’m sorry that you, alongside @Arlen and @Bob_Brinza, are experiencing this issue. We’d love to help out
To that end, we’d love to find out more about it to understand exactly what is going on. For example:
what is the screen you’re starting on
what screen are you going back from to get to the screen you started off on
Also, you mentioned coming back to the Roon Remote app. Are you simply switching to another app, or quitting the Roon Remote app (swiping up from the app tray)? How long are you doing other things until you return?
The only way I’ve found around this is to build a queue–add an album to the queue, go back, find another album to add, etc. When the queue finishes, and I haven’t moved the list from the last album added, the list remains positioned.
Thanks for getting back to me. To answer your questions in order, I’m starting out in My Albums. When I go back to My Albums it’s by using the back arrow from the Queue. When switching to a different app from Roon I would double click the Home Button on my previous iPad. On my current one I do a three finger swipe on the Magic Keyboard Trackpad. If I only do other things for a minute or two before coming back to Roon with a three finger swipe or choosing it from the app tray, every thing is fine. If it’s any longer than that is when I run into problems. This is what my screen captures are trying to show.
Start someplace in My Albums.
Play a selection from there.
Do something else while the music is playing.
If I do something else for more than a minute or two when I come back to Roon I get a quick Roon animation before the program opens again.
Using the back arrow from there takes me back to the beginning of My Albums, not back to where I left off.
In response to your questions I did a little research. My initial impression is that if I come back to Roon while the first song is playing, no matter how long it is, I don’t get the Roon animation and when I back arrow to My Albums I end up at the spot I left off. If I do other things long enough that the second song starts to play, I get the animation when I come back to Roon and a back arrow from there takes me to the first album in my albums instead of where I left off.
I do a three finger swipe on my Magic Keyboard to hide Roon so I can switch to another app which I believe is leaving it running. If I do another three finger swipe with a little jog to the right Roon is always there with whatever other apps are running.
Thank you for following up to let us know that this issue was cured with the latest update, that’s great news! Please feel free to reach out if you ever have any other questions or issues. Happy listening
I first reported this back in 2017 and was pleased to finally have it fixed. You do need to be running the latest version on your iPad as well as your core. Also, did you turn on Enable Lock Screen controls under Settings/Setup on your iPad? You have to do it there and not on your core.
Guess support is going to have to give you a hand. I use my iPad exclusively for my remote and for the last 4 years it has behaved exactly as you’ve described. Until yesterday when the problem went away. I can pick something out of my album list and play it, go do something else for a while and when I come back to Roon and back arrow to my albums it goes back to where I was instead of back to the beginning like it always used to. I notice in the feedback thread on the update that a number of people have the same change I’ve experienced so you must have something else going on. Hope Support can help you get it resolved.
