Hi I’m running roon on a Windows 10 media pc.
Utilising both WiFi and Ethernet
To feed my old squeezbox devices, dac’s from audiolab, fiio and m-audio. Plus a network of Chromecast audios and Google mini’s linked together to replace my aging Logitech system
I’m having a number of issues .
Firstly the connection between my server and players seems quite random, one second they are there the next gone or completly renamed or names just gone. Meaning I can’t just pick up my phone(android 11 device) and play some music In my bathroom, I need to reboot hang around and hope the server spots my players for long enough to hear what I want, guess which device is which as the naming has gone back to default
Secondly my server appears to be processing files continually and hogging resources and what looks like repeated attempts at building it’s database.
The third issue is that when I do manage to select a device or zone that’s a Chromecast audio I’m getting an error message trying to connect, stating Chromecast not being able to switch to roon. Confusingly this isn’t all Chromecast audios
The big question is, is this normal and what I am to expect from the roon system? I’ve switched from a free and aging Logitech squeezbox system that had the very rare and odd connection issue to a paid and current system roon and I’m really sad and disappointed that it doesn’t even come close to my older and aging system from Logitech that I was hoping to improve upon.
Thanks Jim, I am connected via ethernet from the server with the endpoints 90% WiFi but you’ve given me something to look into so I’ll check to make sure I’ve no cable problems and that the server isnt defaulting back to WiFi.
Hi slim and thanks for the assistance.
I am on ssd with audio on two HDDs 4tb each although only three quarters full. I’m encouraged by this not being normal so I will give roon a chance.
I’ve been up and running for about four days and the system has been on continually since but maybe patience is all I need. I’ll let the system stabilise for a few more days and see what happens. The endpoints comming and going could be a WiFi issue I suppose, I’ll check my wiring.
thanks for all the help
the issues were all related to my core being new and updating quite a large collection for the first time, after a week or so things settled down and i now have full access to all tracks and players,
thanks and happy new year
