Description Of Issue

Arg, another itunes integration issue.
I have Roon monitoring my itunes dir.
It’s finding my playlists etc.
I have smart playlist “PPP-All” that includes the tracks from all my playlists.
They have about the same number of tracks between the itunes playlist and its version in Roon, so I thought Roon was doing a good job about duplicating my itunes playlists.

But today I decided to listen to my favorite Cars tracks.
Went to roon -> playlists -> ppp-all
filter by “cars” in artists column.
It shows 1 track.
The itunes playlist has 21.
The albums seem to be in roon and the tracks, but just aren’t showing in the playlist.
Any thoughts on how to debug this?

Figured it out.
I still have the problem of many albums being identified by Roon as
artist: unknown artist. album: -
unknown. the cars - the cars
That apparently is causing tracks to not show up in playlists.
Need to sort out that misidentification problem to solve this problem…

Hi @Peter_Galvin1,

Can you share a screenshot of how one of these albums is appearing in Roon? If you manually identify the album is it appearing in the iTunes playlist?

Hi Dylan.
Yes manually identifying the album allows the tracks to show in the playlist.
Here is an example album that causes 2 problems. 1 it’s not identified, 2 it’s displayed in roon as 2 different albums (which I then need to merge to fix).

Hi @Peter_Galvin1,

Would you mind sharing this album with us?

Ideally, you can zip up the entire folder and send me a private message containing a shared dropbox link. If you don’t have Dropbox or need another way to send the media, just let me know.

Shared it a few days ago? Any progress on figuring out what’s going on?
