Being able to import or the system to read an nfo or txt file would solve so many issues - I happen to still have a whole load of nfo files from using Kodi and even one of Bryan Adams scraped from Allmusic in 2010 before he requested they remove his details! It would be great to be able to import this, much in the same way as we can import the thumb and background images. I’m assuming there is no way to do this?
My other gripe at the moment with metadata is the additional albums etc… that Tidal is showing in the Discography. Very often it now shows two versions of an album i.e Help! by The Beatles and Help! (Remastered) from Tidal - admittedly this was because my version of Help! hadn’t been identiified by Roon, so identifying it manually, made the two merge.
But for some reason Tidal/Roon thinks that Bat Out of Hell II by Meat Loaf came out in 1977 (it was 1993) and even though my version has the correct release and original release dates, it shows as being released (even though it has the 1993 date above it!) between Bat Out Of Hell Live in 1977 (according to Tidal/Roon) which came out in 2004 and Bat Out Of Hell, followed by Hits Out Of Hell (again 1977 according to Tidal/Roon but actually came out in 1984) - what a mess! It shows correctly in the Overview (i.e. my albums only, but under discorgaphy it is all wrong). An we can’t seem to edit the info on these versions.
Whilst having access to some extra albums via Tidal is great and some of them might sound better than the versions I have, it would be great to be able to hide albums that we want to - I could then hide the above and they might show in the correct order, or hide the multiple best of albums that are showing. Or hide the mistakes - apparently AC/DC appeared on a smooth jazz album by Michael Lington and a hip-hop album by AP9 & Husalah - absolutely no offence to either genre or artist, but this isn’t the type of music I listen to and therefore want in my collection. If AC/DC happened to play on the albums then fine, it might be quite interesting, but they didn’t it was someone called DC and not necessarily the same one on each!
Sorry for the rant, but I think like many on here, I’m a bit of a control freak when it comes to my music collection, so I don’t like seeing things that are incorrect - if we could hide albums from view, or edit them, which would seem quite simple as we can do that to “our” albums that would solve many issues as well.
