Description Of Issue
My Objective: I would like to accomplish “zone grouping” between my two zones (EndPoint 1 & EndPoint 2). Both EndPoints currently work fine as independent endpoints (without any grouping).
My Problem: Evidently the sonictransporter cannot be configured via the normal ROON “Settings → Setup → Configure” path [just endlessly ponders after clicking configure button]. Also, “Zone Picker” symbols and/or “Zone Settings”options do not appear when such zone icons are clicked. So, I have not been able to find any way to treat the two zones as “grouped”.
Yet, a Roon Labs Help Center paper entitled “Installing Roon on Linux” suggests that “Roon Bridge for Linux runs on x86_64 platforms” and implies that “ROON Bridge” can be installed on Linux machines using an “Easy Installer” to install Roon Bridge. If so, this would allow me to group the my zones ???
I have no idea how to do this or whether a Roon Bridge can/should be installed on the sonictransporter core or on my two endpoints.
I’ve spent hours exploring available online information but am still lost. I’m hoping you could help me with this.
