Hello. Just installed the Roon ROCK Core on an Intel NUC7i5BNH. The installation went well. I was able to enable Chromecast Audio and Nvidia Shield TV Pro in the settings. The Roon app on my Android is able to see the ROCK Core. I haven’t had a chance to play with it much.
I have a question about the information that is shown on my TV via the Shield. Is there a reason why it only shows the artist and track info, along with the progress bar? There is no additional information (liner notes) on the artist. Is it due to the device (Shield/Chromecast) not being Roon Ready? Should I expect the same thing if I were to use the Chromecast Ultra to display to the TV? Thanks
It’s a Roon design team decision to just show that and not give configuration choices.
You might want to check the feature suggestion section for a thread concerning this “issue”, or open a new thread about it, so users can vote on it to maybe make it a reality in the distant future - just before the sun expands to a red giant and melts the earth…
Roon-ready is more than just RAAT support and just because a device supports RAAT doesn’t mean it is Roon-ready. RoPieee on RPi supports RAAT but it is NOT a Roon-ready device. But you are right that RAAT has nothing to do with Roon displays.
Yes I get all of that but the OP expected
"There is no additional information (liner notes) on the artist. Is it due to the device (Shield/Chromecast) not being Roon Ready? "
and the answer is no. It’s not part of the roon ready cert which is about audio.
Manufacturers can and do add in other components and that is tested by roon but it’s not core.
Update. It seems to depend on what the track is. For some tracks, only the progress bar and track info is show, The background is a blurry photo of the artist. On other tracks, I have gotten a better background photo, in addition to lyrics.
