Well I seem to have spoken too soon… Since New Year‘s Eve something in my ROCK seems to go wrong, forcing me to restart the server via the web interface, on which I can see a „Not ready” indicator on the “Roon Database & Settings”. I’ve tried a new DB and various reinstalls—unfortunately this happens seemingly randomly after a while.
@support is it possible to have a look into this? I’m sure you’ll want to eventually offer full support for the NUC8 series and rule out any issues…?
Edit: I’ve also removed any custom BIOS settings I had set before and did a full reinstall with USB stick. Similar issues.
Thanks for asking, but no. The only thing I’ve figured out is that ROCK won’t run on the NUC8 for me. I’m currently running again on my NUC7i7 without any issues (uptime 4.5d). Things I’ve tried before:
Fresh ROCK install
External SSD connected via USB
Even with the new SSD and the external USB SSD, ROCK will show the previous alert (“Not ready”) and become unresponsive. As my return window closes, I will send back the NUC8 and extra RAM+SSD today. I’m fine with the NUC7 as it is solid “like a rock”
