A few requests about devices…
- Remember the settings for it. I have an S2 digital and every time I use it I have to go back and set it to exclusive mode etc. Is it likely that I want the settings to be different each time?
- Preferably remember them for my environment. I use the S2 via usb. So I plug it into several laptops. I have to do the settings for each machine, each time. Can we store the device ID and settings on the core so if I plug it into another machine it has the same settings?
- if I am using a USB device and plug it in, is it fair to enable it by default? Trying to decide if there’s a time when I plug it in and don’t want to use it.
Any thoughts from others? These are probably specific to USB as other devices tend to stay on.
Cheers - thanks for the feedback. I only have the S2 as a USB device.
That’s only true if you use them on the same device on the same usb port. I have five usb dacs and they all have to be configured again when plugging into a different device or different usb port. Once they are all configered Roon will remember them but it defenitly does not remember setting per device id.
Thanks for that. Explains what I am seeing. I have 1 device and 2 laptops. The one is a new MacBook Pro so I plug it in via an adaptor based on whichever side is more convenient for power for the laptop. Explains why it didn’t keep settings. Guess I need to plug it into all ports of all machines and configure it
Provided Roon are able to uniquely identify a device regardless of sessions, it would be great if it stored these preferences on the core machine. Guess there are actually a fair few settings that should be common across machines.
The combination of machine/usb is considered as a unique endpoint. So, to Roon, the S2 plugged into laptop A is a different than the S2 plugged into laptop B.
Thanks - is that down to the Roon implementation, or is there no way to uniquely identify the device?
Well, the devs can pipe in with more specifics, but, I am assuming that it is implementation. And at a fundamental level since it is relying on audio connection information reported by the OS.
DACs do not have unqiue identifiers that are enforced industry wide, like with MAC addresses.
Thanks for the insight. Useful to know. Guess we can close the thread off then.
