Mac Mini late 2012 2.5 GHz intel core i5 running OSX El Capitan 10.11.1
Roon version 1.5 build 334
Apple TV4 OS 11.4.1
Set to allow airplay for anyone on network, password on.
Roon/Apple TV interface has been reaaaaallllly buggy lately, but after dropping tidal, even though tidal password correct, tried restarting roon, everything apple tv / airplay related gone. can’t even see the zone
Tried turning everything off, turned back on router followed by apple tv followed by mac mini. same results, can’t see apple tv as a networked zone
DDylan, thanks for the response. To answer your questions, I can now login to Tidal in Roon. Unfortunately, it appears to me that Roon is only communicating with the gozinta side of my network. I can’t see the Apple TV on the audio settings under network devices, nor can any of our Roon apps find the core anymore.
The only non AirPlay device I have is a built in dac on a Parasound P5 preamp. It’s connected via usb and playing fine. The only way I can control Roon is through the Mac mini that has the core.
I think I may have screwed something up. When Roon quit communication with tidal (which happens far too often, btw), and I restarted the mini running the core, I ignored a message about raat. I can’t find anywhere to turn raat on now. I don’t know if that has anything to do with accessing AirPlay though, but it certainly seems worth mentioning.
FWIW, AirPlay is otherwise functional. I’m mirroring tidal from this iPad right now. The tidal app on Apple TV also works fine, but lacks artist radio so we prefer to mirror.
Lastly, here are our google WiFi specs, pulled straight from the phone app. If anything is missing let me know and I’ll try to dig it up.

Roon core is connected via WiFi. The google WiFi app can see what is connected. Roon is getting tidal and the mini is connected to our network in every other way. I can browse the web for instance. What specifically should I look for to see what network difficulties Roon is having?
Can you try connecting the Core machine via Ethernet to your router and see if there is any change in behavior?Knowing whether or not the same behavior occurs will be a great data point for where this issue may be stemming from.
I finged my network I can see the mini. I don’t know if there’s anything I should look for with Fing to see Roon in particular. I won’t be able to get to hooking the mini directly to the router for a few weeks. I’m going away for two weeks this weekend.
No rush at all here, David. I definitely think that this will be the best next step here in troubleshooting this issue. When you return please give this a try and let me know how it goes. I hope you have a great trip!
That’s definitely good to know. Since they’re both seen on the network it may very well be an issue with the WiFi connection between the Core machine and the Apple TV. Having the Core machine connected via Ethernet will definitely give us a better idea of where the issue is stemming from.
