I am struggling with one thing regarding TIDAL & Roon. Indeed, I have on TIDAL playlists that I added as favorites, and as expected they appear on “my playlist” in the Roon App.
Unfortunately, those playlists don’t update automatically (not really convenient when the TIDAL playlist is a frequently updated playlist) - even if i sync TIDAL in the ROON/services of the app and even if I reboot my Core.
Strangely, those playlists update themselves sometimes without me doing anything, but not at the frequency that I would like.
Also my question is: is there a way, even manually, to update those TIDAL playlists on ROON?
Or would it be possible, in the Roon app / TIDAL window, to have in the “Your favorites” also your favorite playlists (as of now, in the TIDAL window / your favorites, I only have artists, albums and songs but not playlists).
Many many thanks if someone has a solution (I tried to look at the forum, but the only solutions I found was the sync within services and the core reboot…)
So we can better assist you, please provide a brief description of your current setup using this link as a guide.
Make sure to describe your network configuration/topology, including any networking hardware currently in use, so we can have a clear understanding of how your devices are communicating.
How many playlists do you have in TIDAL?
If you create a new playlist and then sync TIDAL in Roon does that new playlist come over right away even if other playlists aren’t updating?
Many thanks for your answer.
Regarding my setup
- Roon Core: Roon version 1.7 running on NAS Synology (10.2.0.0)
- Remotes: Roon IOS, Roon Andoid and Roon on PC
- Network: NAS server directly connected to my internet access through RJ45 cable (connected to core through Wifi)
- Audio device: KEF LS50 wireless, also directly connected to my internet access through RJ45 cable
- Library: some music on my NAS, Qobuz and TIDAL
- My internet access: fiber internet, Orange France as internet provider, Orange box (where my NAS and my speakers are directly connected) is a propietary box https://assistance.orange.fr/equipement/livebox-et-modems/sagemcom-livebox-5#fiche_presentation
For the moment, I only added 8 TIDAL playlists (set as favorites to see them in the Roon - playlists tab).
Regarding your last question, yes. I’ve just added as a favorite a playlist in Tidal, then have synchronized Tidal in the services menu and it was displayed instantly in the Roon - playlist tab.
By the way, doing this operation (i.e. adding a new favorite playlist in TIDAL) seems to update all the others at the same time (I checked yesterday night and they were not updated, and now - after doing your test to add a new one as favorite - they are all updated…)
many thanks if you can find the issue!
Ps : I can confirm what I have noticed yesterday. Apparently, TIDAL playlists update themselves (I mean tracks within a given playlist) only if you add or remove a complete playlist. If the number of playlist don’t change, tracks are not updated
I wanted to check in with you here, are you still experiencing this issue?
I’m not sure I quite understand what you are saying here, can you clarify?
Once you perform a manual TIDAL sync your tracks should appear in the playlists.
Yes the issue is still there.
Basically, my TIDAL favorites playlists appear in Roon under my playlist. But if, within a playlist, tracks change (new tracks, new sorting, etc.), it doesn’t update inside Roon - even if I manually sync Tidal service in Roon.
However, if I favorite a new one inside Tidal and manually update on Roon, all my Tidal playlists update however.
To give you a theoretical example, let’s say that I have 5 favorite Tidal playlists (playlist 1, playlist 2, playlist 3, playlist 4 and playlist 5) - all thus appearing inside Roon - my playlists.
- Tidal update playlist 2 and 3
- I manually update Tidal inside Roon, but when I go inside my playlists in Roon, playlist 2 and 3 are the same as before -> not updated
- However if I favorite a new playlist inside Tidal (let’s say playlist 6), and I manually update TIdal inside Roon, then I can see all my 6 playlists BUT playlists 2 and 3 are now updated
Bottom line TIDAL favorited playlists don’t update (in a given playlist) except if you add or remove a complete playlist.
Tell me if it is clearer or not - and thanks a lot if you can solve this issue !
ps: this issue is quite problematic as soon as you have “top of the week” like playlists - if 3 weeks later you still have the same one, it doesn’t make sense to follow them inside Roon
Thanks for the additional details here! I’ll forward the details to QA to see if they can reproduce your findings on their end!
Hi @noris - I hope you are doing well.
Do you have any news regarding this topic?
Thanks for the reminder on this one! I spoke to QA and they have confirmed that this is expected behavior at this time, once a playlist has been added to Roon, it will remain static unless removed and re-added.
I understand that this is not ideal behavior here, but it is the way that Roon currently works. If you would like to see any changes in this area, I suggest that you fill out a feature request, our product team keeps an eye on that section!
