Search not returning results since updating to Build 952 [Solved: Update to Build 970]

Hey Community members,

We’ve had a steady increase in reports that search isn’t returning results since installing Build 952. We have a ticket in with the developer team and we’re currently investigating.

If you’re experiencing issues with search since the update please let us know in this thread. Several of you have had your reports merged into this thread in order to centralize user tracking and consolidate our status updates in one location.

To help facilitate a fix please use the directions found here and send over a set of logs to our File Uploader Please include your Community username and ‘search’ in the zip file name.

We apologize for any inconvenience you’ve experienced and appreciate your assistance while we review the issue.

Please try using the Filter function on your Album, Artist, and Tracks pages for locate the music in your library while we work on this issue.

I have my local library storage of music files in Roon server. And Tidal is connected in Roon. I suppose the search function will search local library and Tidal.

The filter function works on my local library.

What is interesting is that the previous search (say a few days ago when search still worked) did return result… But I guess it may be the cached result.

I tried to uninstall Roon server and remove the data. Even after reinstallation of a fresh Roon server, the search problem still persists.

I also tried to unplug from switch and plug directly to router. Still cannot search

I wonder if there is any Windows OS setting will cause this problem ? However, Roon server already turned off Winidows update.

To Roon support team, any insights on the problem ?

I do experience the vary same problem as @a_m2. Software version of the Roon core is also 1.8 (build 952). I noted the problem for the first time in the last week, presumably after the latest software update. The core has been rebooted after the problem first occured. The problem occurs on all access points (Windows, iPadOS, iOS).

Is there a way to fix this?

I rebooted but no change.
tidal and qobus works, but not the search function.

Hi @salvatore_morelli,

I wanted to reach out because I’ve been attempting to download a diagnostics report from your setup.

For some reason it is not reaching our servers, even after I tried re-enabling diagnostics on your account. I also ran a quick test and I was able to submit a similar report from my setup here, so something else is going on.

So we can move forward, I was hoping that you could use the directions found here and send over a set of logs to our File Uploader?

We appreciate your help with troubleshooting this issue. Thanks!

Hi, I am having the same problem. I recently changed the computer I was using as server and now search won’t work on any remote. Have you found a solution yet?

I have the same problem. It started since the last upgrade of the Roon. I didn’t change anything i n my Windows 2012 R2 serwer. Any solutions ?

Same problem on my windows pc.

Description of Issue

Search not working after latest update. All I get after I type in a search is the Roon squid. Doesn’t matter if local files or via Qobuz. I’ve rebooted core, router, and iPad & Android phone. I also tried logging out of Qobuz and Roon Core. Problem remains. I can search no problem via other apps including Lumin and Linn. Not a network issue that I can see. Issue is the software or perhaps it’s a regional issue.

Hi there
Same problem with me. It´s only the search funktion, that does not work anymore. If I pick an album from i.e. the Qobus news list -no problem. Also restarted everything - no search since a few days ( latest update ?)
Hardware is a Ripnas Solid V5 which should have inside: Intel Celeron 1151, 2TB HDD, 120GB SDD, 8GB RAM, WIN 10 PRO

I have the same issue.

Search doesn’t work on any of my devices following latest update, including the core machine itself.

Just get the infinite Roon squid of doom:

Very frustrating - not long since the OS crashing issue was fixed after a very long wait. And now Roon is unusable again… For me over the past year Roon has been in a broken state more than it’s been usable!

@support are you investigating this issue?

Description of Issue

When I try to search for anything, all i get is a never-ending spinner.
I’ve also tried rebooting the Core, and disabling Qubuz, no change.

I had the same problem the last few days. I finally tried clearing the image cache (I know, shouldn’t be any relation), and that fixed it. Just a suggestion.

If you want to clear the cache, just navigate to the database folder (while roon or roonserver is off) and rename cache to cache_old. On restarting the server (or Roon) a new cache folder will be created.
