I am having a new Roon problem today. I’ve been using Roon right from the early release without issue in a number of setups and its always been very very stable for me.
My Roon is running from a supported NUC7 running Rock with the library on a NAS. All this sits on a wired network, as do all the endpoints. Streaming is stable and music is playing from the core to any endpoint right now with no issues. The issue I am having is with controlling Roon with remotes running off Wi-Fi (iPhone 6, iPhone X, iPad Pro and MacBook Pro) which all lose connection to the Roon Server all of a sudden in two specific rooms in my house (no issues before today). WiFi is pretty stable in those rooms and I can sit there and surf and YouTube to my hearts content and I notice that I am not having this issue on any other app on OSX or iOS. Roon cannot maintain a stable connection to the core in those two rooms only (which just happen to have endpoints in, one of which is my main system). If I walk into another room with the whichever device it regains a connection to the core. As I say, this only appears to be affecting Roon from today.
My home WiFi is via a Sky Q broadband hub (UK) and standing in the same room as the WiFi router, Roon is working fine on the remotes. Sky Q also has a TV box in my main hifi room which apparently also extends the WiFi signal and it is principally this room where the Sky TV box is, ie the extended signal, where I am having trouble (and the room directly above it). Checking WiFi signal strength I actually get a much stronger signal (faster speeds) off the TV box extended signal than standing next to the router.
I can only assume as I move through the house, when the WiFi is hopping onto the extended signal, Roon drops and cannot regain its connection to the core. I tried wandering about the house streaming high def YouTube without any issues at all but as soon as I pop into these two particular rooms, I lose Roon immediately.
New issue today but means to control Roon on my main hifi I keep having to go into a different room to operate a Roon Remote!
Any clues folks on where to start looking folks?
