- System includes a Small green computer Sonic transporter running Roon, Microjukebox and redundant Vortexbox as music storage, ASUS router, Sonos system. Worked great until last Roon update. Now constantly scanning but maybe helpful system loses connection to the Microjukebox often. Which means system stops since that is primary music server. Then scanning restarts, but eventually stalls. Same effect by clearing Roon cache. All software up to date, reinstalling Roon and restoring backup do not fix the loss of communication with the Microjukebox. It does seem to be Roon software issue and not faulty drive because the Sonos system does not drop the Vortexbox randomly. I tried pointing to sub folders only and this did not fix problem either.

@Lawrence_Klein @dylan tells me the 5.6 kernel resolves this problem in Roon. I updated the default kernel for sonicTransporter. You just need to press the update button in the software manager.Core Machine (Operating system/System info/Roon build number)*
The above has solved the infinite scanning issue completely; however, Roon continues to drop network communication. I’m wondering if it is still related to the kernel issue. For example, the last playlist I set had about 10 hrs of music and was set to repeat but it only played for about 2 hrs before dropping network. This has happened every night since this problem started with overnight playlists, for example, and the kernel update did not solve.
I think I eliminate a router problem because a Sonos playlist working off the same servers or Sonos radio will play continuously overnight for instance.
Could there still be a kernel problem?
