Rebecca , following on your email of today, here is a copy of email I sent to Kevin today that follows on your thinking of sharing info for others.
The issue persists however at this point my empirical evidence points to Naim as the main issue. using addition and subtraction of individual components and their software related systems (yes I have a lot of time on my hands…lol) including patch cables.
The components that play well Itransporter with roon installed and music library, Sonore optical rendue, Sony XBR TV. I removed an Apple TV 4K, as they had run an update in late December and did not want to complicate matters.
I have spent weeks sorting through this issue and it is that latest NAIM update which fixes a Tidal issue is causing issues with both ROON and Synology.
All these above products played seamlessly with ROON, except when I played them through the CAD 5 port on NAIM ND5XS. When I play them through the RCA inputs from an Ifi Bluetooth no issues at all, when back to the Naim big issues with ROON. I simply switched between audio endpoints in ROON from my SONY xbr TV , and via the IFI as one end point and the ND5XS as the other.
Further the issue started when I ran a streamer update from NAIM that updated a new Tidal requirement for logins.
Tidal and the Naim app on an IPad or IPhone both run seemlessly, but not ROON. So something is amiss here.
As an aside since the Naim update my Synology NAS drive has also had same issues.
I worked around this by using the UNpnp device selection on the NAIM and it connected to the SSID on the ITransporter and Sonore Optical module (UNpnp)
I have given up hope with NAIM support, I suspect this now French owned and managed company is not interested in supporting an older generation streamer, but only to sell me a newer product, sort of an apple iPhone attitude policy. So my only recourse is to delay the purchase of a new set of Focal speakers I had my eye on and auction some PMC a and Nola’s.
I thought this may be of interest to ROON users who have older NAIM streamers that cost very large sums of money.
I only have one question though, as I have checked my music library on the SSID on the Itransporter and I discovered many tracks with multiple versions, sometimes up to 4 copies of same song. Does ROON keep or update multiple versions for Dbase or indexing reasons?
Thanks for your query, feel free to post this in the community area, as I will be doing in other audiophile forums to assist other Naim users.
Appreciate any info or update on the multiple copies issues, so I can amend or delete unwanted copies without upsetting all the pieces in the chain.

Nothing in particular that we’re aware of, was this just a temporary problem? Or is it still persisting?
Let me know,

Are you having any issues with software or Tidal. Roon is now near impossible to listen to.

Description of Issue
In early January Roon has stopped playing some internet radio stations, both in my favorites and any i choose. Some other stations play and then just stop.
Playlists in both roon (saved from Tidal) and Tidal playlists in Roon are skipping half of my selections. Roon simply skips songs. (Some that I previously have played a lot). Roon is also skipping and not playing songs on my SSID drive in I Transporter. Today is near impossible. Plays 3 seconds of a song and cuts out. Everything on same network I transporter IP is 192.168.0.17, ; naim nd5xs is 192.168.0.17. No obvious conflicts.
Seems Roon is having issues with my songs on SSID, Roon Live Radio, Tidal Playlists, Tidal songs saved in Roon Playlists.
Appreciate a prompt reply. I have had the Internet engineer hear this morning checking out lines and modem. All is good and drumming 365 mps.
Unrelated is I also have a Plex Pass if that is a potential issue.
