Not as much but still on some

Hi All,

Thanks for the reports here, we’ve been able to reproduce this behavior on our end and QA is aware and investigating!

Just as an FYI as well, album art scrolling during playback is not functioning as well.

Hi @noris /Roon Support,

Any update on this issue please?

It still persists for me.

Also seeing frequent display drop-outs since the major update.

Many thanks,

Aidan

Hi @Aidan_Nolan ,

We are still investigating this one, we looked into similar behavior for Roon Web Displays on Chrome and found that a Chrome browser update resolved the issue. Using the latest firmware on Chromecast sill reproduces the issue on our end, so this issue requires some further investigation.

Perhaps as long as you’re in the “Chromecase waters” you can upgrade the Roon Chromecast content as well. Lots more important and useful than fixing an off-color swath

Hi @noris / Roon Support,

Any further update here?

It persists still and spoils the artwork.

Thanks,

Aidan

Hi All,

For those impacted by this issue, can you please let us know which Chromecast Device (Old Original | New w/ remote | Ultra) & Cast Firmware you are using?

You can access firmware version info by going to the Google Home App → Affected Chromecast → Settings → Scroll all the way to bottom → Cast Firmware Version.

Also happened with Silk browser on Amazon FireTV (FireTV cube 2 and old FireTV 1, both with latest firmware).
So, also happened on other web displays not only Chromecast.

To add, seeing a lot of display disconnects/drop outs this evening.

No other obvious issues going on with my network…

Roon core 1.8 build 913.

@noris / Support

Any update here please?

Quarter of a year of it now.

Thanks,

Hi All,

We have a fix in progress regarding this, if all testing goes well, it will be included in our next release.

Thank for the update Noris.

Fingers crossed :crossed_fingers:
