Meridian equipment-218 endpoint
Was 3700 CDs, attempted to add another 18,000 CDs.
Description of Issue
I was using a My Book HD that had 3700 CDs on it
I added a 2nd My Book that has WAY TOO MANY CDs on it for a regular Nucleus! 18,000 CDs!
Forgot that the regular Nucleus is for 10k and under CDs.
It started the loading process but went to a constant “Roon searching icon” when it reached its limit
I removed the 18k Drive and left the original 3,700 one connected.
NOW, I CAN’T GET IT TO SHOW ANYTHING. It just shows the Nucleus Core and when I hit the “connect” button, it just keeps the Roon loading icon — FOREVER — cannot do anything.
I have unplugged everything, restarted, checked all connection, network is fine — I am hard-wired vs wireless. I also tried connecting another HD with different music — simply cannot get anything started anymore???
There is no hard limit. It will work just fine, and you will be able to load these albums into your Nucleus. The recommendations regarding library size and Nucleus choice are guestimates. If you want to do upsampling and convolution filters to several endpoints simultaneously you would want something more powerful though. (And to me, the + model really doesn’t have much gain on the standard i3)
What happened is, however, a mystery and @dylan response is confusing in the context given.
I’m a bit curious to what “FOREVER” is in your mind? A library of over 20K albums on USB-storage WILL take bout 5-10 minutes to load.
If you had under 4K albums before, this might be unexpected.
This is quite irrelevant though as the Nucleus is designed to be kept running continously.
