I have two zones and for both some volume leveling is configured, both zones same settings. When I group these zones together, the volume leveling for the grouped zone is turned off. Now I set the volume leveling for the grouped zone, but after I ungroup the zone and group the same zones together again, the previous set volume leveling is again turned off.
I expected, that roon will remember this setting for the grouped zone. Do I really have to set the volume leveling every time I group these zones together? How can I make roon remember my settings for grouped zones?
Here is my setup:
Roon is latest version (Build 390) running on a Linux Mint 17.3, 64bit Roon Core and 32bit Roon Controller running under wine.
I have one Raspi with Digi+ HAT and the Linux PC as Roon Output. I also have several Sonos devices.
This problem happens when I group together the Roon devices and it happens when I group together the Sonos devices.
Volume leveling setting is: Track / -16LUFS / -8DB.
Volume leveling works fine, Roon just does not remember my settings for grouped zones…
We have an active ticket regrading this behavior but I should note that this ticket is currently a feature request.
QA has noted that joining the two zones together creates a new audio group which may or may not have the same settings.
Since this is currently “working as expected”, I would suggest that you add further feedback to the feature request ticket as the product team keeps a close eye on the feature request section for where to take the product next.
I agree. My project is to buy more Roon Ready products namely a BW formation duo and a BW formation bar. These 2 speakers are in the same big room but in 2 different zones. For now I have a Sonos Beam and 2 stereo paired Sonos Fives. For everyday use with Roon and the BWs I will have to group / ungroup the 2 systems several times a day. So it would be crucial Roon remembers the Volume Levelling settings.
Is this something under consideration by Roon team at least?
