MacBook Pro running MacOs 10.15.7.
The MacBook has OS build that has only been used to run Roon version 1.7 (build 667). Nothing else (other than MacOs processes running)
Network Details (Including networking gear model/manufacturer and if on WiFi/Ethernet)
Macbook is wired to the network. There is a TP gigabit switch and the network is controlled by a Synology 2700ac router. The network is very stable, especially when using wired devices. For example, I have NAS devices that never loose connectivity.
I am in the centre of a City with very reliable 200Mb+ broadband download speeds.
Audio Devices (Specify what device you’re using and its connection type - USB/HDMI/etc.)
Mostly I use RaspberryPi controlled devices: IQaudio and HifiBerry too drive amplifiers or passive speakers.
Description Of Issue
I always get the “Unexpected error: limiting roon radio to library” message whenever I try to use a Qobuz track to drive the roon radio. I have reboot everything, disconnected Qobuz and reconnected etc, to try to remove the problem. I see from other similar topics that this problem exists with many users but that sometimes you are able to resolve it.
I use Qobuz all the time and although I would not describe the roon/Qobus connection as stable, it does work most of the time. I have a reasonably substantive local library so library works well with some tracks, but always limited to my local library.
I have tried this, as you suggest elsewhere, using Beatles abbey road.
Help would be very welcome. For example, Is there a separate network channel created when using the radio that I need to enable?
For some reason I thought that you were saying that you were seeing network errors on my local network. There was no DNS setup on my router so I have installed a DNS. I’ve not created any zones, so it is just the default for now.
I have also re-built my LAN mesh network and I have re-installed and rebuilt the roon database as you suggested above.
I think it is now behaving better - can you tell me if you are still seeing the same issues from your end or if it has removed the network errors?
I’m still getting the same error occasionally. It seems like if the roon server has been running for a short time it starts to error even if it has not been busy playing musics. I’m still using the rebuilt library.
BTW is it possible to get my playlists back from a backup?
No there doesn’t appear to be a permanent fix. This error has now gone by wiping everything and starting again, but this is just replaced with another error which means that streamed music stops (usually after 2/3 seconds or skips). I really love using Roon - such a shame it’s not reliable with Qobuz.
I think I’m going to see if BluOS is more reliable.
