I have problems connecting my Roon Core to my phone.
In the phone, Roon can see my Rore Core (which is on my Synology 713+)
But when I press connect, Roon on the phone does not find my Roon Core.
Although it has previously said that it can see it and seems ready to connect there.
It then seems to have forgotten this and then says that it can not find Roon Core.
Roon finds Roon Core on the phone again but then the above happens again
Can you read a log file and see what does not work?
Very grateful for all the help I can get
Thanks for your reply and the awsome information you gave me
Can I keep my FLAC files on my NAS or should I move everything to another NAS with more memory etc or to another computer?
I understand that the choice of network standard is an issue that is more inflammatory than a third world war.
I have moved into a new house and wanted to make it future-proof.
That’s why I bought CAT7 cable and CAT7 connectors.
The potential risk of having to change the network standard is for me more work than buying a standard that is a little too good at the moment, an easy choice in my book.
To the probability that I have to change the standard in the future just because the political situation says CAT5e or possibly CAT6 should be used at any cost.
The small cost of CAT7 today I thought was a risk I should take.
This issue is not at all in my political interest, God forgive me!
One thing that might make you less upset that I chose CAT7 is that I pulled all the 790m cable myself through walls and ceilings. It took me all my free time for three weeks.
That’s on you to decide. For Roon it’s best to have the whole library on local storage. A NAS can still be used to hold a backup. A NAS is often either under-powered or very expensive - I don’t think it’s an ideal hardware platform to run a Roon Core on. But if you know what you’re doing, do what you want.
There are lots of threads already that discuss suitable hardware.
I don’t want to start a war, just make you aware that you may run into trouble in the future (possibly hard to locate the issue then) going forward with your Cat 7 cabling. There are hardly any devices that support the connectors from the standard and as it looks right now, the electrical drivers of future devices will be optimized/expecting a different type of cabling.
Thanks for your reply.
I have now moved over my Roon Core to my new computer with an Intel i9 12900K and 64GB RAM on a 10G network.
My WiFi is not that fast with a maximum off 1000Mbps with my Ubiquiti AP XG acess point.
I run Proxmox on this computer. I will test running Roon Core at different ISOs and see where it works best
Now I run it on the Windows 11 ISO and it works incredibly well. As you said, I will use my NAS as a backup of my music collection and Roon core installation.
As for the network standard, I would have listened to you before I pulled my CAT7 cables.
If you want to tell me what problems can arise with this standard, I would be incredibly grateful.
In this forum how do I mark a thread as solved?
Different electrical properties defined for cabling and connectors in the different standards. I’m not a high frequency engineer but I know that these things can matter. You may lose connection and/or may run into EMI/RFI issues.
