Does Apple Family Sharing break Roon?

Roon Core Machine

Mac mini M1 - Ventura 13.5.2

I’m being asked for “additional authorisations” by ROON client on Mac (same machine as ROON Server) and via ROON Controller iOS.

The only thing that’s changed is that I enabled “Family Sharing” for purchases within my Apple account a day or so ago. Might be coincidence, but now ROON clients can “see” the Server/Core but cannot use it…Any ROON updates I’m not aware of, is this a problem with Apple Family sharing, or something else?

Networking Gear & Setup Details

Unchanged for 2 years. ROON Core connected to home network via wi-fi. No connectivity issues as such.

Connected Audio Devices

N/A. No connected devices can use the core. Not just Apple clients, but my NAD Masters M10 no longer has a “Roon Ready” source, nor my Bluesound Powernode 2i.

Description of Issue

I think I’ve outlined it above.

OK. For reasons unknown, I had to “unauthorise” my existing ROON core. I could then connect. Client was telling me I had set up an additional core (I had not), so I imagine a bug with Apple App Store settings. I’d still like to know if ROON offers any form of direct support…
