Are there any network specific settings - either on rock, my router, or local playback remote that can interfere with the connection to the roon core? IF so, what should I check out first?
Roon has been working fine for me for over 3 years and now something is causing it to lose the connection to the core. It’s random and will simply stops playing and displays the message, to the affect; ‘Cannot connect to roon core…’. It does reconnect after about 30 seconds, but does not restart the track.
If you notice, the Server is running 4 hours while the OS has been going for over a day and a half. My guess is that something is causing the RoonServer to restart. Do you have a good backup? If not, then I’d make one first thing.
Setting a static IP from within the ROCK device is just asking for trouble.
If you must set a static IP, do it from within the router software so DHCP knows about it.
Taking backup now. Any idea of what that something may be? This is a new phenomenon, using the same IP address and NAS storage device. Nothing has changed with my system.
As it turned out, the static IP seems to be the culprit. I changed to DHCP and so far it seems to have worked. I’ve been listening for a couple hours this morning and the connection hasn’t dropped once. May be too early to tell for sure, but before it never made it past a few tracks before crapping out. This is progress.
If for some reason it raises it’s ugly head again, I’ll try setting another static IP address at the router end.
Thanks to @Rugby Rugby for reaching out and providing another solution he’d read about where a user had a similar situation with the Nucleus.
Hopefully, all is good, and I can get back to enjoying the music.
