Often when I use Roon, I hit Shuffle on my whole library, or I focus on a few genres and shuffle that. Both of these primary activities seem completely broken in 1.8.
When I shuffle I now only hear tracks from bands that start with A and B. Every other artist is excluded because for some reason it only shuffles the first 5000 tracks? I can’t help but be a bit shocked at this backward step.
And then there’s the inability to focus on more than one genre at time. So it’s Rock or Jazz…never both! I’m having trouble wrapping my head around how my primary uses for Roon were, for some inexplicable reason, completely wiped out with this point release.
I really hope I’ve just missed some setting somewhere…
I totally agree with Brandon. 1.8 seems to be such a retrograde step in terms of searchability. One of the things I loved the most about Roon was the “Focus in similar”, and this seems to be completely absent. It is a major loss of functionality. I hope Roon is listening and taking action. It is such a disappointment.
