Despite a solid fiber-optic line i get regular signal dropout when using digital radio…various stations, several times a day, no apparent reason…which require a restart of play. Our home is very internet driven and all other systems perform consistently.
Is this a Roon issue or could it lie elsewhere in my audio system. My IT tech has monitored my interne signal and it is stable.
Hello @michael_maharam, I’ve put your post into the general #support category for now. Please add any extra details about your setup using this link as a guide.
Make sure to describe your network configuration/topology, including any networking hardware currently in use, so they can have a clear understanding of how your devices are communicating.
Can you tell us a bit more about the problem please? Do the dropouts occur whilst listening to an already connected station or only when changing stations? There is a known issue at present about connecting to new stations - see this thread .
And to be clear - playing local files or streaming is OK?
Thank you, and apologies for the delayed response.
These are two Swiss sister stations, one classical and the other jazz…essentially the only stations we listen to…they seem to be technically rock solid.
I use both Tidal and Quobuz and they seem to function fine independently of the issue of dropout. Dropout appears to be a system and not a source or ISP driven issue. We have a strong fiber-optic connection and my IT tech and the ISP have confirmed a steady signal.
A good question…i have now disconnected the two primary zones. Will advise. Thank you.
Thanks for checking in. It seems not to be the issue, but I wanted to get my IT guy here to check the network before responding. I am getting those black and orange messages on my phone app telling me that Tidal is not loading properly, by example, and that it could be a network issue. I’m not sure why this would happen as we have a fully digital house (Gira) and a robust professionally engineered network. Will advise when I know more. Thank you.
