Description Of Issue
I have stopped using Roon (but foolishly let the account renew) because every time I try, the fans ramp up, I see processes showing Roon at 400% or so, CPU utilization in the 25-30% range, and have an overall sense that something is completely misbehaving. These are numbers I associate with Final Cut doing stabilization, not a music player lying idle with nothing selected.
I know there have been a ton of threads on this topic, which is alarming enough, and I jumped on one with a “me too” post that is probably not useful, so here goes with a new topic as suggested by the Facebook page maintainers. What can I do to get this back under control so I can simply use it as a local music player? I am not trying to do anything particularly complex, and we are way past updating album cover art (which seems to be a common triage first-reply).
If it weren’t so inscrutable, I would tell you what it is trying to do… but honestly, it is just sitting there with the fans at full blast. No filckers of the activity icon or any other indication that it is trying to do anything.
I’ve gone back to iTunes in recent months, just to play my own files, and I am constantly reminded by its awful user interface why I was SO happy to kick that to the curb when I got Roon a couple of years ago.
Thank you for any help…
