Description of Issue

WHRV internet radio playing
Backup failed at 1:00:00/Music Playing

Things are working as designed. I’m one of those people who sleeps with music playing or BBC World service as the case may be.

I can go back to off the air radio over night.

I use the Alarm Clock extension to disconnect my endpoints just before scheduled backups. You could add another alarm 5 minutes after backup to restart them.


As the Mandalorian would say… This is the way.

I have spoken.

I assume you meant can’t

Hey @David_Hamby,

Thanks so much creating a topic describing the way you use Roon and what issue you ran into. We’re sorry about that and about replying this late…

Since it’s been close to a month since this thread was last active, I was wondering if maybe @Progisus’s suggestion worked in your case? Have you tried something else?

We changed the antennas on the FM radios and use Apple music over night. Have not run down the Alarm Clock extension.
