Over the last couple of days a few of you has been reporting issues with the screen not able to follow the zone.
I’ve spend serious time on this, but the sad part is that I can’t reproduce it over here.
Now, since @seagull reported the issue as well I’ve noticed what might be a possible pattern: everyone that reported issue is running ROCK afaik.
So a question: is there anyone out there having this issue with a setup where he’s running RoonServer in stead of ROCK?
Ok. With some more testing done by @seagull it now indeed appears this is a ROCK issue. What I’ve seen is that the extension is not functioning anymore, but after a reset of the Roon server software on ROCK it works.
Now, I expect that over time it stops again, but at least we now a little bit more.
Would be great if @Lloyd_Borrett can also test this: reset your ROCK and see if the display goes back to working correctly (at least for some time).
Thanks everyone that helped out with sending feedback, testing stuff and being patient
Here are some ramblings about my currect issues with Roon.
Much of the time when I try to start some music playing via Roon Remote running on an iPad Pro or Windows 10, it can take 10 to 30 seconds for the music to start playing. I suspect my two Intel i7 NUCs are in some sleep mode or power saving state and it takes them time to get going. It would be nice to know how either the BIOS settings, or some other ROCK or Roon settings could be changed to avoid this.
On one of the NUCs the music files are on a Synology NAS. On the other NUC the music files are on an external USB3 drive connected to the NUC. Maybe these disk storage devices are in a sleep state and need time to wake up.
My two iPad Pros running the Apple Roon Remote app often loose their connections to the Roon Core running as ROCK on the NUCs. Roon Remote running on Windows 10 still works. The only way to get the iPads connected again seems to be to shut them down and power them up again. Roon @support have been looking into this problem for months now but I don’t think they have a fix yet.
Since the last Roon software update I’ve been having problems with the RPi touch screens on two of my DACs working properly. This seems to be a communications problem between the RoPieee Remote Control extension and ROCK running on the NUCs. Or maybe Harry @spockfish has narrowed it down a bit more than that.
Of course all of these issues could be totally separate, but I’m starting to think that at least the last two could have something in common.
