I decided to give HQPlayer a try, and am having some difficulties configuring it to run with Roon. Briefly, my system is an i5 NUC running Roon core, and two possible endpoints: Odroid C2 and a Pi3 with a HiFi Berry DAC Plus. Both of these are are running Diet PI. I was able to install NAA for the Pi3 from the Diet Pi software menu. I installed HQPlayer on my iMac (for now). Files are served up from my Synology NAS.
In HQPlayer, under Preferences I have the following set:
Also, the “Allow Control from Network” button on the top bar is depressed. Under this configuration, when I press play in Roon I get an orange message: Transport: Failed to open the audio device. It seems to me I am missing something. Do I have to let HQPlayer take control from Roon Bridge somehow? I would have expected to see an HQPlayer selection under Roon’s audio setup.
All help is appreciated in making this work.
