Description Of Issue
The Roon Core stops working every 10-40 minutes of playing. When it stops working, the music stops playing and the Core becomes unavailable on all devices (iPhone app; iPad app; MacBook app). The Roon App indicates that it cannot find the Core. If I click the option to select another core, the correct Core is listed as “initializing”. Within approximately 1 minute, I can connect to the core again and it functions properly until it crashes again (in the same fashion). When I check the Core’s status on WebUI, it does not indicate that the Core has rebooted. Rather, it indicates that the Core has continued running and is stable, even when the problem has occurred just a few minutes prior. In most cases, the Core starts working again without the need to reboot.
This issue is not specific to any of my devices. It has occurred on all of them, including the chomecast, the chromecast audio, a chromecast speaker group pairing the two, as well as the iPhone. I have also tried disabling and reenabling the devices, as well as restarting the router and all devices. It does not make any difference.
The vast majority of my usage is through Tidal. I have a very small local library, so I cannot confirm whether this issue occurs with my local library as well.
This problem has been occurring consistently since I created the Core a few days ago. When I created the Core, I imported my database from my MacBook. I had previously run Roon on my MacBook for approximately 1 week, and it worked flawlessly.
I also tried reinstalling Roon a second time. It did not make any difference. I have confirmed that my BIOS is up to date, and all BIOS settings are in accordance with the recommendations on the Roon install page.
I appreciate your help. Thanks.
