Description Of Issue
I’m a new with Roon and I’ve downloaded alla my Music Library (ex iTunes) and I think all my tracks are in Roon now but any playlist appears. I’ve tried the ways you suggest to add my playlist without luck. Let me know How can I Do.
iMac OSX Catalina version 10.15.2
My Music library is stored on external HD
No, In the Music Folder are stored the Artists subfolder but no iTunes library.xml
Attached the screenshot about the Root. As you see I’ve downloaded the Music Folder With other tracks.
In the second Screenshot you can see what I watch opening the iTune Folder.
I think I see the issue here. Your XML file is located at Maurizio 1 > iTunes which is not being watched by Roon (we are watching just the Music folder within iTunes Media.
There are a couple of options here.
First, you could re-export the XML file but make sure it’s exported to the Music folder that is being watched. Alternatively, you could set Roon to watch the entire iTunes folder which also includes all sub-folders.
As long as the iTunes XML file is located inside of a watched folder in Roon the playlists should export.
To confirm — You’re wanting to see an album view of the playlists screen? This is not currently possible, but you could use Tags instead of playlists. You can take specific albums and see those albums when you select the tag.
Can you share a screenshot of this playlist in Roon and in iTunes?
I checked with the team on this and, unfortunately, it looks like this is stemming from an issue involving special characters in the XML file that Roon uses to import playlists. The good news is that we have a bug report open with our development team to address this issue. I can’t say for sure when this behavior will be addresses, but we will be sure to keep you updated once we have more information.
