HDMI to Marantz AV8805

Description Of Issue

This might be a rudimentary question, but should a hdmi connected audio device appear as a selectable zone option only if the audio device is powered on? If yes okay that makes sense, however a couple of times I have turned back on my Marantz AV8805 and it will not show as an option and ihave to rebuild the device settings and save. Then when I power off it will disappear ( I assume that is correct ) but it may not reappear next time

The Marantz does show up consistently as an airplay option and I assume that is because of the Ethernet connection , and being separate from the hdmi connection. The Ethernet connection is always on standby to remotely turn the unit on or monitor for software updates.


Hi @Jarrod_Cohen,

When this occurs is your Windows machine seeing the Marantz outside of Roon?

Hi @dylan My pc is seeing the Marantz as a media device. I was wondering if it is because of windows firewall permission. Right now I see it as “Roon tested” airplay option while it remains off and in standby. I included a screenshot.

I turned on the Marantz and it reappeared, I guess maybe I was just experiencing a glitch or network issue earlier. I took a screen shot and happy Thanksgiving.

Hello @Jarrod_Cohen, glad things are working again! Please let me know if the issue returns.
