I have NUC with ROCK seventh gen i5 BNH.
I thought I’d attach a monitor via HDMI, just to show cover art what’s playing on Roon.
I can’t get it work. See picture for all that I get.
Or am I doing something stupid that is not possible?
ROCK is deliberately headless. There is no graphical display.
You could put a Pi together and run RoPieee with a 7" screen If you really want a screen.
RPi is easy…if you can manage an ikea build its not too difficult and takes much less space
I love my displays using RPi and Ropieee (I have 3 of them) and connect 2 with DAC’s displaying whats playing on the DAC and the 3rd uses an IQAudIO DigiAMP+ HAT with a pair of bookshelf speakers attached in the bedroom…WAF friendly too - she uses it all the time.
ROCK is headless.
I think you can install Windows and run the standard Roon for Windows (instead of ROCK) to achieve your purpose.
ROCK does not support extensions like the Web Controller that is linked. But I have put together a step by step installation guide that installs Diet Pi on a Raspberry Pi. This allows you to run the Pi as a Roon endpoint like ROCK, but also allows you to install extensions like the Web Controller and the popular Alarm Clock extension.
Here is the doc: https://github.com/pluggemi/roon-web-controller/wiki/Diet-Pi-Installation-Extension-Manager
Yeah I was envisioning the OP would use another system connected to the tv for display purposes. Guess I should have made it clear.
