Serial #1C697A09AD88 Roon Core Machine
Windows 10 running on Parallels MacBook 16" pro with 64gb Ram (but same behaviour on Bootcamp)
MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019)
2.4 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9
64 GB 2667 MHz DDR4
Big Sur Mac Os
Parallels v. 17
This dongle broadcasts in 2.4ghz low latency lossless audio to H3Pro Hybrid gaming headset.
The dongle works fine on MacOS (multiple machines).
In Parallels, if the dongle is shared audio from the Mac, it works fine (ie running Roon in parallels and the selected audio device is the Dongle shared to Windows from the Mac Core audio driver).
However, if the dongle is directly connected to the windows machine (in parallels or in bootcamp), there are problems.
The dongle windows audio drivers are up to date.
Defender virus and firewall turned off.
I can play audio to the dongle within windows from tidal (either exclusive or shared) without problems.
However, when I play audio through Roon, eg start an album (via Tidal), it loads a track for one second (doesn’t play any audio), and then skips to the next track, rinse repeat, until it goes through the whole album in a few seconds.
I tried individually changing all of the settings for the audio device in Roon, and the behaviour doesn’t change.
it would seem that this isn’t a network or core issue given that the dongle works with Roon on Mac, and given that the dongle works with Tidal in windows.
Also, I had the same issue when installed in parallels on a Mac Mini, Monterey
