I run Roon on a simple Toshiba laptop, intel i3 1.5 GHz, 4Mb internal memory, Windows 7.0. I have stored my music in FLAC fomat on a Seagate personal cloud, hard wired. I use an USB DAC from BMC audio, either via Jplay or TUSB drivers. All in all a simple system, just do-able for someone with limited digi- knowlegde like me. And I was extremely happy with the functionality and quality of Roon in this set-up.
Since about two weeks Roon does not play back anymore. It recognizes all my albums, but as soon as I choose an album or track, it stops before the first sound emerges.I can still fastforward to choose the next or previous track, but with no sound at all and no indication at all on screen that something is happening. I did not make any change to my system in the meantime and therefore do not understand at all what is ( not) happening.
Thanks for your support, I was travelling so I could not respond earlier. My set-up puzzles me. I truned the stuff up this morning and everything functions again, but with one issue that I every now and then have encountered earlier: al of a sudden playback stops and holds, the only option that works then is to skip to the next or previous track, or change album. Possibly a few days earlier it was the same cause, but more severe. Do you have any explanation and possibly a cure?
Thanks and best regards,
Having a closer look, I saw a difference in your representation of the audio setup for my dac. In your screen the options are: exlusive, event driven and fixed volume mode. In the screen that appears with me I see only one option: max hardware buffer size (which I have not selected).
