I’m trying out Roon streaming Tidal to my Raspperry Pi / DAC using Roon Bridge. Before this I was using the Tidal desktop app and streaming to the same Pi / DAC via Airplay.
I have found that I am unable to control the output volume using my system volume controls (which are always accessible as my keyboard has a volume wheel on it, as well as a play/pause button)
So to change volume if the phone rings for example, I need to find the Roon app, and hit the keyboard shortcut to change volume or use the slider. Which is a PITA if Roon is behind other apps.
It would be good if there was an option in Roon to ‘link to system volume’ - ie nudge the Roon volume slider up and down in response to system volume changes. Doesn’t sound too hard to do? I can’t be alone in wanting this? Keyboard volume controls are very common.
Without it I’m not sure I can live with the hassle, just for the slight increase in bitrate/fidelity of RAAT over Airplay.
Alternatively, as others have requested, if you opened up a basic Applescript dictionary (I’m on a Mac btw) then I could probably hack it myself - maybe via Alfred. But native support would be better.
