Description of Issue
I have gone through the community questions from members to see if someone has resolved the exact issue but have not found a 100% match, I need to confirm if what I’m experiencing is expected behavior of Roon.
I can only use the MacBook Pro through an external monitor via HDMI, the built-n screen stopped working eons ago. Roon works just fine, the audio devices (incl. DragonFly, System Output and Build-in Output) are enabled, visible and working as expected. The issues starts whenever I take out the HDMI cable out of the machine, then all audio devices disappear.
I had the full Roon installed, then reinstalled Roon Server (followed the correct instructions) and the issue persist. I thought running Roon ‘headless’ would help but no dice. I installed Plex to see if this is an OS issue but Plex works just fine without HDMI for music.
If this is expected behavior, I will try to solve outside of Roon.
