Description of Issue
Ever since the last update, I get constant internet radio drop outs, and drop outs and skipping or songs when playing my library. It doesn’t matter what device I am using. On the core I also have JRiver and I don’t experience any dropouts with that. So I have been able to narrow the issue to the Roon software. My guess is that maybe a buffering issue has been introduced? I will receive other errors such as lost connection to audio device, and network error…
@dylan . I usually have Roon going during the workday and have so for many months. I started noticing that not too long after the last release, that I was starting to have dropouts on live radio, and it would happen regardless of the station I selected. Then today because of all the issues I started to just play music from my library and that would stop every 10-15 minutes and I would have to hit play to rengage.
I did try the system output recently from the core to the marantz and I am getting the issues there too, as well as with both of my raspberry pi4’s which are a wired connection. I made sure their software was up to date too and it is. My system output isn’t playing songs all the way through and skipping after playing a minute or so.
I just finished a rollback to my 5.20.2021 backup build so haven’t had a chance to put the raspberry pi’s to the test. But I did test using my iPad as an endpoint at is dropping with that now to and I get prompted with network connection errors and can’t connect to my Roon core via the Roon app.
Nothing in my system has changed in the last 6 months, and plenty of network bandwidth with 1gb speed. I did have a forced windows 10 upgrade so not sure if that is a factor too.
This is very frustrating after having zero issues for many months.
Nah, I think somethings changed. I’ve never had drop out problems, but since the last update (795) its not even funny. Hopefully Roon are taking these (multiple) reports seriously, and can find the cause.
@Mike_O_Neill@dylan . Changed Ethernet cable and updated firewall settings and still an issue. I have Jriver on the same machine and it is not dropping out, so it seems like the issue is exclusive to Roon and from the past build. Will you guys be looking at the build? Any suggestions. Right now my Roon lifetime is unusable…
The issue is non discriminating across devices and regardless, of music source - library or live radio
Can you provide some examples of dropouts for me? Please include the time the dropout happens and the name of the track it happens with for the next few times you experience this. I’ll then enable diagnostics and take a look at those examples.
@dylan At the present moment I am streaming a shuffle of 622 Nirvana songs from my library and every 2-3 songs it skips. I know it skipped on the second song of the playlist this morning, and others randomly afterwards. But I didn’t keep track.
This morning and prior to the shuffling of Nirvana I tried playing live radio using stations WBAB 102.3 and Wehm Manorville. WBAB stopped within 60 seconds and stopped again a minute later after hitting play again. Wehm stopped within two minutes, then I switched to the library.
@dylan@support. It’s really disheartening that there is no response for days and no response to other people having similar issues. I’m a lifetime subscriber and right now I am second guessing my decision of that purchase with non- existent customer support. It’s hard for me to recommend a product anymore if the support you’ll receive after you pay for it doesn’t exist, I hope Roon is able to change my sentiment.
