Description of Issue

Since a few days Roon is stuck at “adding music to library”
Favorites I mark in Qobuz Desktop get imported into Roon but show no cover art
I have restarted Roon Server and the asrock Deskmini several times. No change

A Pentium processor is probably struggling with 200k tracks. This might be the cause of your issue, but a member of the Support team will be along (after the weekend) to help you out further. Meanwhile, see:


Hi @Geoff_Coupe
The Pentium G5600 has an outstanding single core performance (which is what counts for Roon Server)
Pentium G5600: fixed 3.9GHz
i5 7500: Turbo 3.8GHz
i7 7700: Turbo 4.2GHz
The single core performance of the G5600 is comparable to an i5 7500, which should be plenty
PassMark CPU Benchmarks - Single Thread Performance

The good news is that i the meantime Roon Server has come to its senses and finished its scanning frenzy
