Description Of Issue
I have a few issues that I am hoping to resolve:
When first connecting to the LSX speakers, the LSX will show as a zone through AirPlay, but not as a Roon Tested device directly with the speakers. However, if I play music through the connection via AirPlay, even if I pause it immediately after, the ‘Roon Tested’ pathway to the speaker mysteriously shows up to the party and can be selected / connected. I would obviously like to be able to just select them initially. What’s goin on here?
Sometimes, when selecting a new track from another album, or when skipping to the next track in a playlist, music does not play even though it is showing as :01 seconds into the song and play is enabled. If I pause and repress play, the music will begin. I have noticed this usually occurs when there is a bit rate change between songs. I understand there is potentially a delay as the speakers switch to the different bit rate, which is fine, but the music doesn’t restart unless I do it manually, which is not.
My phone (Google Pixel 4XL) will only sporadically connect with the Roon Core (my laptop) - most of the time it just says ‘Looking for your Roon Core’ but rarely connects.
Hoping to resolve these issues asap so I can be 100% enthusiastic about this otherwise fantastic software!!
Thank you very much,
