Found a NUC8i3BEH on sale at a local store and am considering making the purchase to use for my Core/ROCK OS build. However, I did notice the recent change in support for Gen 8 NUCs and was a bit hesitant–can we expect support for Gen 8 + ROCK in the upcoming future?
Thanks in advance, excited to begin the Roon experience.
I bought a NUC8i7BEH just two and a bit weeks ago based on the fact it was on the ROCK Supported list, and pre-purchase I posted on the Roon forum that this was my intended ROCK platform and asked if it was this a good plan.
My ROCK seems to be working , however you cannot simply withdraw support like this, I have spent £650 on the NUC, £70 on the endpoint and only two days ago £387 on a Roon Lifetime licence.
And having done this someone is saying the Roon will no longer support me???
@support this is an outrage!!! what is the issue and how can you possibly justify withdrawing support when I have spent so much money on this because it was supported. You should be stepping up support to get the issue fixed, not withdrawing and leaving us in an expensive lurch.
Apart from the fact that it’s at the mercy of the pitfalls of updates, re-boots etc. I wouldn’t want to go to the expense of buying a NUC specifically for Roon and then running it on Win10. To each his/her own, I suppose.
I don’t blame you. The ROCK (and Nucleus) solution is mostly a ‘set it and forget it’ solution.
So this model was added to the approved list 6 March and then removed 8th May… major bummer for those that purchased inside the 2 month window but hopefully the issues get sorted and it’s re-added to the supported list.
I’m sure the Roon team are doing everything possible to work through the issues.
I’m sure support for NUC8 devices will be added back for ROCK very soon.
In the meantime your configuration works, I would keep it like that & don’t make any software updates to ROCK, Roon Core or Remotes until support is available again.
Easy to understand if you put yourself in my shoes… my old man (dad) can’t use a computer… just about the only thing he can do is boot it up and load TeamViewer, for me to talk control of it from a different state…
I didn’t like the constant TeamViewer sessions… I bought him a NUC for running ROCK and this solved everything, very quickly and easily… it’s a ‘set it and forget it’ solution
So you can imagine how much I love the ROCK solution
