New installation of existing set-up not working, need help

Mac mini (2020 model 3.0 Ghz, 32Gb) macOS Catalina. Roon version 1.7 build 528

Network Details (all connections are via Ethernet cable, Mac mini to Netgear switch, BT Hub 6 )

Audio Devices (Control via iPad Pro on wi-fi, audio via Naim NDX2 connected by ethernet cable to swithch)
Description Of Issue

New Mac Minin bought to replace 11 year old MacBook Air, so Air backed up via TimeMachine, Mini set up and Apple Migration Asst used to transfer back up of Air to Mac mini - apparently successfully.

Sadly when I open Roon (from task bar as usual) to initiate Core, Roon does not find any audio devices and the Configure button in Setup doesn’t produce any results.

Rest of system is QNAP NAS ethernet to Netgear switch and BT Hub 6 and Naim NDX2 also ethernet to switch.

Only hardware changed in Mac mini replacing the Air, everything worked fine before, nothing seems to work now.

Getting a headache working out what I’ve done wrong/not done/need to do. So all and any help, with idiot proof step by stem instructions gratefully received.
Network Details (Including networking gear model/manufacturer and if on WiFi/Ethernet)

You also need to backup your Roon database from within Roon on the Air. Then restore to the Mini. TimeMachine does not reliably backup databases.
