I have had HQPlayer embedded for 1 week and it has worked fine.
Now all of a sudden Roon will not connect to it.
HQP is on the same machine as roon core and therefore it is set to “localhost” in the roon setup
Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
In the web ui of HQP, I cannot access the “main”, “library” “convolution”, “speakers” pages any more – if I click on them, it just takes me back to the config page.
I tried reinstalling HQP using dpkg but no change
Is the install corrupt?
HQP service is running fine it seems:
hqplayerd.service - HQPlayer Embedded daemon
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/hqplayerd.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
Active: active (running) since Fri 2021-10-01 23:30:27 BST; 8min ago
Main PID: 929 (hqplayerd)
Tasks: 7 (limit: 9046)
Oct 01 23:30:27 vassal systemd: Started HQPlayer Embedded daemon.
Oct 01 23:30:34 vassal hqplayerd: active locale: C.UTF-8
If I less /lib/systemd/system/hqplayerd.service I see a line: “EnvironmentFile=-/etc/default/hqplayerd” – the file / etc/default/hqplayerd does not exist – is this a problem?
Tried rebooting multiple times
Tried rebooting NAA
HQP log says it can see the NAA fine
Here’s the config page - if I click on the links to “main”, etc at the bottom of the page (as described above) it just takes me back to this config page. The “restore”, “About”, “Authentication”, “Key” and “Log” links work fine but the others don’t work and just take me back to the config page. This leads me to suspect something wrong with the HQP installation.
I tried uninstalling hqplayerd using apt-get and reinstalling using dpkg ( sudo dpkg -i hqplayerd_4.25.2-85_amd64.deb) but this has made no difference. Is there another package I should uninstall perhaps?
Dac is a Chord Qutest connected via an Allo USBridge Sig via USB. The USBridge has a DigiOne Sig on top, which is also connected to the Qutest via Coax for a bit of variety. All this still works fine as both the Qutest USB and the DigiOneSig show up in roon as native devices. The output of the Qutest goes into an analogue input of a Naim 272 preamp and this all works fine - sounds come out no problem. HQPlayer can access either the USBridge or the DigiOneSig and I can set them in the config page, but I can’t access the HQP via Roon now. My gut feel is that the HQP install is corrupt somehow.
This is a really strange one and I am baffled. Any light will be much appreciated!
