Hi all! I used ROCK for about 6 months on a NUC NUC7i5BNK. Worked perfectly. I had HDMI problems at first, but replaced the HDMI cable with a high quality one and all problems disappeared.
Got a bit frustrated with keeping the audio files up to date on Rock with my catalog. So I decided to install Ubuntu Server with OwnCloud, and put Roon Server on top of it. Fantastic. Now I can install new files to an OwnCloud sync’d folder in Windows Explorer, and Roon automatically picks them up. Big benefit is that now I have access to all the music (and photos, documents, videos, etc) on OwnCloud from outside of my local network. All https secured. I’m not sure why Roon gets inside the protected OwnCloud data folder, but it works. The HDMI port on the NUC works perfectly for Roon audio too.
I use dnsexit to keep my dynamic IP up to date.
I’ve had a couple of songs skip to the next unexpectedly, but I hope it’s just because Roon is busy indexing its database. It should settle down. I’ll monitor it.
Thank you Roon.
