I have a desktop machine (Machine-A) which is connected to a set of speakers, Machine-B is a laptop I use for work. A separate dedicated Roon ROCK device is my Roon Server.
Machine-A has only Roon Bridge installed… Machine-B has the Roon desktop application installed as I use this machine to control my listening sessions. While I am working on Machine-B I usually have Machine-A opened through a Windows Remote Desktop… I noticed lately that while music was playing, if I close the Remote Desktop windows on Machine-B, then Roon would suddenly stop playback… On the Roon application I would see “Roon lost control of the audio device” message.
I would have to open Roon and hit play again to resume playback. For some reason Roon Bridge seems to be interrupted when a remote desktop window closes… Is there any particular reason for this? I used this configuration for about a couple of years now, the interruptions in playback are very recent so not sure if there was any update in the Roon architecture that causes this… Any tips?
I have my Windows Remote Desktop setup to play audio on the remote machine and not on the client machine.
