New Roon user here. The subject might have already been discussed.
For roughly 2 months I’ve been struggling with Roon often skipping tracks, displaying a “Tidal/Slow/Connection” message.
Upgraded the Wifi with a tplink mesh, still happened.
Since my home PC and roon server is an old 3rd generation I5, I tried to raise the priority of the Roon process (WIndows 7 Pro OS), and since then not a single skip for a month. Setting the priority (through task manager/processes or “details” in win 10) to just one level above normal priority was enough.
Hope this helps someone.
