Airplay via Ropieee no longer works

After installation Airplay worked perfectly. Now however, although Ropieee appears and is checked on the control panel, there’s no sound. Airplay is fine via Airport Express.

On a related note, AirPlay on ropieee doesn’t seem to handle the volume control properly.

“Max” airplay volume is whatever volume Roon/raat set last, whicn is often way too quiet.

So I have to crank the speaker volume way up with roon, before I watch tv (using AirPlay). Then I turn the volume back down, quickly, before I play music/roon again.

Hope this makes sense. I wish raat and airplay both gave me full volume control.
