Hello @Jay_Touve ,

Apologies for the delay in response here.

Can you please check your iOS permissions?

Local network access is set to on for all devices

Hello @Jay_Touve ,

Do you have any firewalls or antivirus applications running on the Mac? I’ve seen programs like Little Snitch, Bullguard, McAFee cause connectivity issues. Do you have any VPNs active on the iOS device? Are the iOS devices on the same network subnet as the Core?

Noris, I have no firewalls set up and devices are on same subnet. No VPN either.

Hello @Jay_Touve ,

Does this issue just impact the Mac Mini or does the same behavior also occur if you host the Roon Core on another PC?

  • Create a Backup of your current database
  • Open Roon on the other PC you wish to try as the Core
  • Roon Settings → General
  • Disconnect
  • On the “Choose your Core” screen, press “Use this PC”
  • If asked to Unauthorize, you can go ahead and do so. You are limited to one active Roon Core at a time but you are free to switch between them as often as you’d like.
  • Verify if the same behavior occurs on the different PC
