Description Of Issue

The audio will start and play for several minutes then stop abruptly.
Sometimes the Mytek DAC zone will disappear on Roon.
Other zones are working just fine. Server operating system is fully updated and rebooted to troubleshoot but the issue persists.
This hardware was working without issue until a few weeks back.

Is the Mytek connect directly into the router of power adapter ? If the later try to connect it directly into the router.

Hello @Zaid_Haddadin,

Powerline adapters have caused issues in the past with Roon, as mentioned in our Networking Best Practices. I would second Larry’s suggestion, please try connecting directly to the router and verify if the system works as expected with the powerline adapter out of the equation.
