Description Of Issue

Must restarted roon server few times a day to keep graphics from disappearing on roon on computer and ipad. Read many posts going back years on this problem… ever find out why this happens? I don’t have this problem with Plex.

Hi @Eric_Eufusia,

Welcome to the forum! Can you please share a screenshot of what it looks like on your end when this behavior occurs? Does this issue only happen on one screen in particular in Roon?

Hi Noris,

Thanks for your reply : - )

This is what is looks like. Other pages are the same; text but no graphics.

It happens on my computer (this screenshot) and my iPad.

It happens on each device independently. One will work fine while the other does not.

Thanks for your help!

Hi @Eric_Eufusia,

Thank you for the screenshot. Can you please try clearing out the Roon Image Cache on the PC? This button is located under Roon Settings -> Setup -> Clear Image Cache -> Clear Cache:

As for the iPad, could you try reinstalling the Roon app from the App Store and let me know if that helps?

Clearing cache does not help. Same for reinstalling app.

Restarting roon server repeatedly works everytime.

HI @Eric_Eufusia,

I wonder if Plex is causing a port conflict in this case, is the behavior the same if you reboot and don’t have Plex running (or using port 1900)?

Good thought : - )

Plex is using port 32400 for both LAN and WAN.

I will try shutting Plex down anyway.

I’ll post as soon as roon fails or, in a day or two if it fixes it.


Verified roon problem still exists with Plex not running

What are the specs of the machine running the Roon Core?

That looks like a gaming rig not just an HTPC. Are there any video capture or video recording running, like twitch, discord, or OBS, Nvidia game environment?

It looks like the images from our metadata servers are not being displayed properly. Do local albums also display this issue or is it just for images that need to be downloaded from our server?

You could also try changing your DNS to Cloudflare DNS, Quad9 or Google DNS in case there is an issue with resolving the address of the image.

And as @Rugby mentioned, if you’re using any video capture apps, I would try turning them off temporarily.

No video capture or video recording is running.

I did just notice my RAM usage is getting up there. I will order more today.

Local albums also do not show up; no graphics do. However, I just changed my DNS from Comcast to Google anyway.

I’ll keep you posted

I just found NVIDIA settings to turn off any video capture… I wasn’t using that feature anyway : - )

Also turned off overlay in settings for NVIDIA and Discord

What firewall are you using? Try disabling it and see if the artwork appears.

Turing firewall did not help… just so happened graphics were missing just now for me to test.

Uninstalling roon server fixed the issue
