1. Roon Bridge not releasing audio device
I run Raspberry Pis as endpoints running Roon Bridge. Everything is working fine so far but I recognized that sometimes I cannot stream to the Pi using Airplay 2 via Shairport Sync. I found out that after I reset or remove a group of players Roon Bridge keeps the audio device busy.
If I start playback via Roon and stop it for one endpoint I can then use Airplay. If I add an endpoint to a group and remove it I cannot use airplay afterwards on the removed device:
shairport-sync: warning: The output device "default" is busy and can't be used by Shairport Sync at present.

Long story short: If I stop playback to a Roon Bridge endpoint the audio device gets released. If I remove a device from a group it does not. Is there a way that Roon Bridge releases the device if there is no playback?
Backslash in iOS app
If there are cornered brackets in a song title you get a backslash within the mini player.
Thank you for your patience in awaiting a response from Roon.
We want to look into your issues and need to narrow down a date/time/track played scenario in the diagnostics. Can you please duplicate for the first issue and let me know this information? We’ll dig deeper and get back to you.
As for your other questions/points, we will be putting in a ticket to look at the odd formatting in the signal path. We suspect it’s relevant to translation but need to further isolate it.
Thank you for that. I’ve created a task for us to review with development. We’ll get back to you with our findings. One thing though. The Roon Bridge log stops at 20:39. We might need to see a new upload with updated data for the relevant time frame.
Maybe I’m blind - I just went through the steps again and there are no new lines for the time frame in the RoonBridge log once again. However there are entries in the RAATServer log file which should be included in the first upload as well. Is this correct?
