Most zones are amp/DAC connected to RPi via USB, RPis are all networked with Ethernet connection to avoid dropouts.
Description Of Issue
1.7/previous builds - no issues whatsoever.
We have 6 zones pulling from Roon ROCK on a dedicated NUC, and media from a Synology NAS + Tidal.
On several occasions, the Now Playing at the bottom of the 1.8 layout shows it’s either playing something else - way earlier in the queue history - or not playing at all, and the track controls (play/pause, next/etc) don’t work.
This is really annoying, and I have restarted the Roon Core, re-downloaded the remote apps on my MacBook Pro/iPad/iPhone, and just had the issue replicate on the latest Windows build on my partner’s work laptop.
Potentially related - zone groupings also don’t appear to work in the same way as previous builds, and feels broken - you have to group zones in order to be able to control them, i.e. if I want to play music in the sitting room, the sitting room might not show up independently and I would have to group it with the kitchen, for instance, to then be able to play music in the sitting room - despite the sitting room DAC being connected via USB to the Core.
