Here’s something else I don’t quite get about Roon and Tidal integration: When I look at an Artist’s Main Album view in my library, why does Roon show me Tidal matched (or duplicate) albums that I already have but it doesn’t show me all albums available in Tidal from that artist? And it also seems to not show me matched albums in Tidal’s Main Album view. Here’s what I mean:
Concrete Blonde albums when I go to Albums -> Focus, Performers, Concrete Blonde. I have Bloodletting, Tidal has Bloodletting, they’re both showing up. Tidal also has Mexican Moon but it’s not showing up for some reason (perhaps it’s a match thing on the Roon side).
Concrete Blonde albums when I go to Artist -> Concrete Blonde -> scroll down to the Tidal section and select Main Albums. I see all of the available Tidal albums but not Bloodletting, and not Mexican Moon (it seems to be missing from Roon’s Tidal list everywhere even though it is avail directly via Tidal).
So my questions are:
Why doesn’t Roon just show me all Tidal albums in the library Main Albums view? What’s the value of only showing Bloodletting? Why not show all or none? If I want to see Tidal’s version I could click on the album and select Versions. I know I can hide dupes but I don’t want to for non-Tidal albums.
Why isn’t Bloodletting showing up in all Tidal Main albums? What’s the value in showing me two versions of the album in the Roon library Main Albums but not in Tidal’s main albums?
And where’s Mexican Moon?
These aren’t complaints, just bugging me that I don’t know the reasoning. And I should mention that this behavior is the same for any artist where I have a subset of albums for that artist that Tidal has.
