Description of Issue
I got this brand new Mac Mini M1 on Monday to use as Roon Core, previously I have been using a 2012 iMac with 16 GB RAM and the only issues I had was just slow performance sometimes due to the age and use of the computer. I have read about similar issues here with Qobuz stopping playing and network issues. The issue is similar to the previous ones reported here, when playing anything 24/192 (albums, tracks or Roon Radio) it stutters, stops and then skips to next track and it keeps skipping with the message saying that it’s a network issue. Have the latest build; machine is brand new, never had the issue before with the very slow and old iMac; my devices and Mac with Core are connected through ethernet, not on WiFi; I have tried changing DNS to Cloudflare and Google and the problems persists. When I play the same tracks, albums on the Devialet through Roon the issue doesn’t come up, it plays as it should. When I play Qobuz on the Auralic through its LDS everything plays ok as well. I also tried changing the DNS setting on the Auralic and the problem stayed the same. I think the issue is happening only with Auralic G2 playing Qobuz with Roon.
What would the solution be as I haven’t seen how to solve it with similar cases, although different setups?
I think that would be the case as I found that connecting the Auralic directly to LAN plays everything without a problem. The weird thing is that it never happened before with the previous computer. Also I had the switch in unmanaged mode since I first installed it so it would be easier to use; I have been trying to reset it by force or web and it doesn’t respond; can’t find it in the router settings either- both IP and MAC disappeared.
I’ll try those settings in the router as well. Thanks.
Yes, will do. One last question about network configuration in Mac OS. When changing the Duplex settings, it says above that the speed is 1000baseT, this Mac comes with a 10G ethernet port; do I have to change it as well or leave it as 1000?
I think it went haywire, I can’t reset it to factory with brute force using a pin in the back, can’t even find it in the network or using Netgear’s own utility tool; it just shows all lights blinking and -somehow restricted - working.
