I recently purchased 2, 96K Wagner Ring’s from HD Tracks.
One conducted by Herbert von Karajan, and one by Christian Thielemann.
No matter what I do we can not get LIBRARY results to be consistent, or reliable.
Search for Herbert 3 albums show up, but not 4 (it is ripped as 4 separate recordings.
Search for Wagner and only 1 recording shows up.
Search for Zeigfried, and nothing shows up.
I am extremely concerned that while Roon is very pretty, it may not be as smart as it needs to be to properly search my library and consistently display results. Music should be allowed to contain more than just Beyonce or Prince.
When I do get results I can see in the title/track/album information the data is RIGHT THERE… nearly impossible to not find during a search, If you want to come onto do a REMOTE SESSION with me and look at my data I am more than happy to offer that opportunity to see a library failing these simple but required search outcomes.
I am also happy to provide the database to Roon if they would like to inspect it and learn from it.
The fact is I really really like Roon but I am still on my Trial, and most importantly Roon must search data that is visible and present to the user. I am not sure what criteria it uses, but having been in computers for 3 decades, I can see something is clearly and possibly fatally wrong with the search engine when searching for Wagner doesn’t find Wagner albums.
Please please please Roon step up, offer to call me and do a remote support session to find out what’s going on. This is too important for a community free for all, this needs real TECHNICAL SUPPORT.
BIG IDEA: Search the TRACK INFORMATION for the search, then build an ALBUM list from there, instead of maybe only searching the ALBUM data. It seems that with a little more work, the search can be 99% more accurate.
Sadly OPERA is the most complicated META data.
Help a guy survive his decision to tell his family… "Oh you will Love Roon… "
Only having had this for a few days, I am also bothered by duplication of albums, and the lack of ability to go directly to a FOLDER when I want to. I understand that many people now don’t even know what a folder is, but I like having the direct access to a folder when I want it. So please don’t hide the simple concept of folders from those of us that understand such things.
