Who is 'Car Dillon' - incorrect metadata

Looking at the artist Cara Dillon, I see 7 albums ‘shared’ with Car Dillon

Looking into more detail on one of these 7 albums, e.g.

Roon’s metadata tells me that Car Dillon is the album artist.

Looking at the Credits, I get different Credits for ‘Cara Dillon’ and for ‘Car Dillon’

I do not find a proper way in Roon to get rid of the non-existing Car Dillon, and to manually correct for Cara Dillon.

Can somebody please help toget this messs solved.

Thanks in advance


I think this is a recent change as it was ok before.

You can probably get round it by merging the 2 artists and then choosing to show her as Cara Dillon, that seems ok for me.



I had this issue also, I added an Additional Primary Artist field

But I now know there is a typo upstream in the metadata path

This is an odd error. I’ve let TiVo know.


Thanks Chris

That is exact what I was looking for :smiley:


TiVo has corrected this and the change is now live on our servers. It could take up to a week to be pulled into your libraries, though I appreciate that you may have edited.
