Description of Issue
Here are the two issues I have with Roon. The first one is recent, the second one never solved.
Recent issue (since 6 months or so): I have to press “Play” twice in Roon whenever I fire up a song after I have booted my streamer (Cambridge CXN). I remember this problem was present after a Roon update, not after a CXN update. Does anyone know anything about how to solve this? Not a big one, but it would be nice to have it solved.
Permanent issue: Whenever I stop and start a new song, there’s a near 2 seconds delay before hearing the music. I am sure this has to do with Roon, since I was an Audirvana user before and the delay was almost non existent. Not a biggie, but would be nice to minimize the delay.
What is the model/manufacturer of your networking gear? Is the Cambridge plugged in via Ethernet?
Can you please confirm if the same issue happens when you try to use the Cambridge USB connection? I believe the USB connection will also get you higher sample rates, in case you would ever want to add a Roon Bridge to the equation.
Sorry, I was not very specific in describing my equipment.
My Core is a MacBookPro always on, connected via Ethernet. My streamer is also connected via Ethernet. The Core wifi is off, so Core and streamer talk over Ethernet. My remote controlling the Core is connected via wi-fi.
