I’m using the latest Roon/HQplayer versions on a brand new NUC 12 with a 12th Gen Core i9/64GB RAM. The NUC is headless and I use my laptop to remote in using Windows’ Remote Desktop Connection. With all that horsepower the NUC runs HQPlayer flawlessly with my preferred filters, as expected.
However when I want to just listen to music and end the remote session (either by shutting down my laptop or by just ending the remote session), after a couple of minutes HQplayer starts skipping. If I re-establish my remote connection, skipping goes away.
So my guess is ending the remote session triggers some sort of aggressive power management although I can’t for the life for me figure out which one. I’ve set my NUC to Performance mode, and have looked at Windows’ power settings and i can’t find anything amiss.
The rest of my setup: NUC → Ethernet → Ultrarendu NAA → Holo Spring 3 → WA33.
If anyone has any idea how to troubleshoot this, I’d be really grateful, thanks.
