PC, Rendu and CXN as described above, all wired connections, fiber into the Rendu. All devices have received their static IPs through the TP Link C50 router
Used to connect Qobuz and also a small library < 2000 tracks
Had pleasant 60 trial with Roon after purchase of SOnore Optical Rendu. All worked well, used mainly HQPlayer (via Rendu) or the Rendu directly to play Qobuz music via Roon. But did a lot of AB testing playing via PC or CXN. Just before end of trial I purchased a monthly subscription. Few days or many hours after becoming a subscriber (dont remember exactly) Roon started crashing. It would crash everytime I was using HQPlayer and would restart it (the hqp). Also would crash often with other devices. Tried rebooting everything in the network chain, etc, didn’t help. Read about reinstalling Roon, so I tried it. After reinstall it quickly open the first time showing eveything as before for the first time I opened it. Then it closed and when restarting Roon, all was gone. I had not performed a backup (my fault, newbie to Roon). Now I have no folder selected, no Qobuz and no devices showing. I tried to perform a backup (even though now there is nothing to backup really) and there is an error backing up database. Everytime I try recycling all network, restarting windows etc, nothing changes and yet I have to show music folder and connect Qobuz again upon starting Roon, and device list shows nothing. Also tried uinstalling Avast or leaving its firewall off, and also tried restoring Windows defender settings ( I had recently upgraded to avast premium so it was my first suspect for causing the issues.)
I admit I probably lost 60 days worth of DSP settings , several adjustments to my Qobuz Playlists, etc, but I can live with that if my devices appear again and backup works so I can perform scheduled ones from now on.
