Good morning Eric and thank you for taking care.
Storage is on QNAP TS-670 Pro with core i5 3570T, 16GB RAM, 5x 3,64 TB HDD in RAID5 plus 2 TB SSD Cache connected with 2x single 1 Gbit Cat6 connections + 1x 802.3ad trunk. Latest firmware.
Switch is DLink DGS-1210-16 with latest firmware. All conntections (except the iPad) are wired.
Router is Fritzbox 7360SL with latest firmware.
Roon Core is on NUC with core i3-6100U and Windows10 x64 and 32 GB RAM.
Roon Client is running on latest iPad and on Windows 7 x64 PC.
Output is Meridian MS600
My library contains approx. 20.000 tracks.
All Roon updates have been made.
When hitting “play” on a song, everything looks normal, even the envelope curve of the song is displayed correctly. However, no music is played and the counter remains on 0:00.
Normally everybody says “I did not touch anything” but in my case this is not true. As I still experienced small dropouts during streaming I was searching the net for some proposals how to improve this situation. In one blog I found the instruction to enable STP in the router. I did that and afterwards Roon had the described behaviour. I undid the change and rebooted ALL devices but the problem persists.
UPDATE : while writing this I remembered that I had also set jumbo frames to 9000 in the Roon Core and did not undo this setting. I just did and Roon is working again ! Sorry to bother you…
Would you please give me some “best practice” for Roon on network settings as jumbo frames and others ? As mentioned, in my configuration I still have those dropouts (very small now in relation with previous Roon versions but still notable) I’d like to eliminate.
Should jumbo frames be disabled throughout the chain ? What about QOS ? Any recommendations ?
