Roon 2.0 will not connect to my Apple TV. Everything was working perfectly until I upgraded to 2.0. I have ensured that my Apple TV is on the latest version and that both my Mac and the Apple TV are on the same network. Other devices can stream to the Apple TV with no problems. I have disabled the apple TV in Roon and reenabled it. I am prompted to enter a code, but when I enter it, the Apple TV does not respond. Is anyone else having Airplay problems with 2.0?
Just to chime in, I have three ATV’s. At least 2 of the three have the same problem. Haven’t tried the third ATV yet but assume the same. Again, all started with Roon 2.0 upgrade. All ATV’s running tvOS 16.0. Changing the setting to require password, e.g. using the generated 6 digit password, works. Help Roon!
Thanks, Lewis. I’ve lurked around but first real post. All three are 4k, with two the first generation A1842’s and one 2nd Gen A2169. All exhibit the problem but can be worked around using the require password approach. They are all wired. I have a Ubiquiti Edgemax 4 router managing the system and a Netgear Nighthawk CM1100 modem with Xfiniti service.
I’d like to say it was me enabling the ARC feature this morning – had to configure the router for port forwarding – but this problem manifested itself before that.
Yes, using the password option (6 digit not 4) Roon shows ATV’s as endpoints. As others said, not an ideal set-up and certainly different from pre-Roon 2.0. Yes, i do have an unmanaged, gigabit switch between the router and endpoints. All my internal IP’s are within the same range. The link shows that it is a public IPv4.
All my Apple TV’s and HomePods have passwords set. If I go to Roon settings and select audio, I often don’t see the Apple TV’s and HomePods listed. Sometimes after a few refreshes one of 2 may appear. This problem has only happened since the update. This is a problem as these are nearly all my endpoints.
Ok, it seems Roon can’t see my HomePods and Apple TV’s when they are in ‘sleep mode’. If I play a song via my Apple Music App to my HomePods, via Airplay, they all wake up. I then go back to the Roon App and presto all my Apple TV’s and HomePods can be seen.
I never had a problem with Roon 1.8, but since 2.0 , Roon can’t detect ‘Apple airplay sleep mode’
Hi, I now have to ditch Roon ARC, and put my home network mesh system back to ‘route mode’ not ‘Bridge mode’ Now all my airplay units are behaving themselves with Roon, but no longer can use ARC. For me the Access to my Apple TV and HomePods were far more important.
In Bridge mode I could use arc, but Roon 2 had problems contacting my airplay units. Apple music had no problem with airplay. So I believe it’s a Roon issue.
