I understand that in-library tracks might not always be what you want, I could be searching for another ‘sleepwalking’ track on Tidal for example, but it does seem like it’d be a good idea to have roon search always return the top 2-3 results from inside your library even if it thinks other results would usually be better. If you have a track/album/artist in your library already that exactly matches your search term, it seems silly to prioritise stuff you’ve never listened to over that?
This seems to be happening very frequently, and I’ve found myself having to browse manually a LOT more. It’s almost like Roon search is avoiding showing the stuff in my library unless I am ultra specific and provide both the artist name and the song name.
Anyway, just a bit of feedback, it’d be great if Search could be weighted a bit so that it’s more likely to actually return results from your library without having to explicitly restrict it to library only results
Yes, and this works, but it’s frustrating that seemingly more than 50% of the time, I HAVE to use this button.
It’s nice to have that button, but it shouldn’t be something I have to use every single time due to poor search results. I should have to ‘assist’ the search as little as possible.
If I have a track or artist that PERFECTLY matches my search term in my library already, it seems silly to ignore it completely and not show it.
Chances are pretty darn high that I was searching for the song I have in my library and listen to a fair bit, rather than tracks that only partially match from artists I’ve never listened to.
It seems reasonable that search should at least be made to always include SOME results from your library. That way regardless of whether you’re looking for the in-library result or not, you’ll always get what you want without having to manually filter stuff
