I’ve just successfully migrated my Roon Core onto a dedicated machine, but I would like to continue to use the Roon Controller app on the old machine (2014 iMac 5K running Mac OS Big Sur) as a local output device.
When I first fired up the app after completing the migration it told me, as expected, that I was not allowed to run two Cores and to click ‘go back’ in order to connect to my previously set-up Core (which I took to mean my current active one, running on the new machine). When I do this the app appears to hang, with the Roon icon in the middle of a blank window.
I tried deleting and reinstalling the app, whereupon it asked me to sign in, but after that the above was repeated and the app hung again.
I recently installed the Roon controller on a new MacBook Pro, and there was no issue. Upon first launch it asked me if I wanted to set-up a new core or connect to an existing one, and I connected to the existing one. Something is evidently different about the iMac due to it previously being set-up as the Core, even after a delete and reinstall of the app.
Any help appreciated!
