Android Roon client - wifi
Raspberry Pi 4 Roon bridge running Ropieee 3.075 - wifi connected to amplifier via digital coax cable
Roon has been working perfectly on my home network for months. Today, after being prompted in Roon, I updated both my Roon core and clients. Now, regardless of which client I use, Roon plays the first 4-5 seconds of a track and then stops playing with the error “An audio file is loading slowly. This may indicate a performance or hardware problem” and playback stops. This is for content from both my NAS and from Tidal.
Ping to the NAS < 1ms
Ping to the Roon core NUC < 1ms
Ping to the Ropieee bridge < 4 ms
Internet speed test - 96 mbps down speed, 42 mbps up speed
Nothing wrong with those ping times.
There is nothing going on with my LAN that I can see that would cause this - access to Netflix via the internet and access to other resources on the NAS and network are all fine. I have changed no network, client or NUC settings. So I suspect it is the Roon core upgrade - that is the only thing that has changed.
I rebooted the Core NUC (three times) - still the same, I rebooted all the clients - also still the same.
I suspect the upgrade has caused this. I cannot use Roon at all so am very frustrated. Please advise.
