Connected Audio Devices
N/A—this problem occurs even when I have nothing connected.

I’m not sure what a RAAT folder is, and I’m not sure the screenshot you sent makes sense? The end of the file path there is a
Googling around, I see there’s something called a RAATServer that’s related to Roon in the
Here’s what I tried:
- closed Roon.
- restarted my computer
- started Roon, which put me into a “first installed” flow, asking me for username etc
- selected current laptop as core
- I did NOT restore from backup
and still, when I got to the audio select screen, I do not see my local system audio
If there’s anything else I can try, please let me know.
Hey Wes (or anyone else)—anything else you can think of that I should try?
