This isn’t specifically a Roon question but it affects my use of Roon. I use a QNAP NAS (TS-253A), with Roon core installed on an SSD drive attached to the NAS via USB. Every few weeks when I try to access Roon I get a message that Roon is “looking for a remote core” and I can’t access any music. (This invariably occurs when we have guests and I want to show off my system!). It seems this happens when there’s a firmware update available for the QNAP. Downloading and installing the new firmware corrects the problem, though it’s a time-consuming process since it requires rebooting the QNAP both before and after the update.
Does anyone know if there is a way to set the QNAP to automatically reboot and install any available firmware updates at a set interval, e.g., once a week in the wee hours of the morning? I think that doing that automatic “preventive maintenance” on the NAS would make sure Roon was ready to go when I want it.
