I need some ideas on a couple of things happening between Roon and HQPlayer:
On occasion, a track will begin to play like a 33 1/3 album played at 16: anyone remember what that sounds like? Roughly half speed with everything shifted waaay down in frequency. Restarting Roon and HQPlayer fixes it, for a while. HQPlayer settings are default, I think: Filter - poly-sinc; Dither - TDPF, Auto rate family box checked.
I have my Roon server set up on a NUC, i7. I use it because I am more comfortable leaving it on 24/7 than a desktop. Keeps it ready to AirPlay to various things around the house. But, I cannot get HQPlayer to work on a remote with the NUC as server. Works fine if the remote is changed to be the Roon server. I have allow network access turned on and have input the IP address of the Roon; both are on the same network. Using Apple AirPort Extreme router with a couple Airport Expresses used to increase WiFi range. After the IP address for the NUC in Roon to I need to add the full path to Roon on the NUC? Or, does this simply not work (network HQPlayer in Beta)? The DAC is an Oppo HA-1 plugged into the remote PC. I tried plugging it into the NUC, but got awful stuttering after a few seconds of play.
Thanks for the help. Really like upsampling of CD tracks and also Tidal. Great sound.
