Description Of Issue
I am currently evaluating Roon and so far like the metadata management , discovery of artists or tracks etc., I also use it inorder to do Parametric EQ application so I can send the signal in exclusive mode to Dac.
However, I would like to listen in my speakers as well and my Edifier speakers are powered ones but don’t have Bluetooth. I’ve been listening music through Tidal/Spotify from my Google TV with the speakers connected to TV.
Now, to use Roon so I will be able to easily switch between listening in headphones and then continue in Speakers, I wanted to enable Google TV. It detects as Audio Device as Chromecast with a 192.168 IP address. However, clicking on enable just starts a Roon screen in TV that keeps on loading and finally timing out and going back to Google TV homescreen.
Similar thing happens when i try to enable it as display. I’ve a Google Nest Hub connected to same network. It behaves the similar way when I try to enable it as display for lyrics.
I’ve searched the community and tried possible solutions so far and nothing worked. Can someone guide me to solve this. This is important for me to decide if I stop with trial or decide to go annual or lifetime subscription.
