Roon and Media Converters

Core Machine (Operating system/System info/Roon build number)
Surface Pro 4 i5 - Windows 10 Pro Ver. 1809, Build 17763.592

Network Details (Including networking gear model/manufacturer and if on WiFi/Ethernet)
Surface Pro through ethernet home network and 24 port switch to Bryston BDP-3 player

Audio Devices (Specify what device you’re using and its connection type - USB/HDMI/etc.)
BDP-3 ethernet in to Bryston BDA-3 DAC via USB and AES

Description Of Issue
System runs fine with ethernet through home network to Bryston BDP-3 player - Core always recognizes Bryston end point - no problems.

Experimenting with inserting TP-Link Fiber Media Converters upstream from the Bryston player to eliminate digital noise and see if SQ improves.

Inserted ethernet feed from wall (that used to go to the Bryston) into Media converter - single mode fiber to receiving Media converter then ethernet cable to Bryston BDP-3 player.

Roon can NOT now recognize the BDP as a system output - how to recognize?

Does the Bryston show up on your network regardless of Roon do others services work on the unit and see the internet etc? You need to rule out this is not a config issue with the media converters and you have ones that work with the Bryson and your network gear as they need to be matched, you can’t have 1000mb one side and 100mb the other.

You need a two way signal path. That would require two fibres. You need to connect TX to RX. You need to ensure you are using low powered launch lasers. Too high and it simply blows the receiver. I’d get it working away from your setup first then put it in.
