Starting after the update to build 571, Roon has connectivity issues and drops the signal every few minutes. This happens irrespective of bit rate (lower resolution files too). I had a very solid connection before the update but now it’s unusable. I have no problem streaming directly from Tidal to the iPhone and Mojo/Poly so I don’t think it’s an internet connectivity issue. This is confirmed by the Google wifi app which shows strong broadband at all access points. Please let me know how to resolve the issue.
What are the exact symptoms you’re seeing here, can you please be a bit more specific?
Does the music playback just stop? Do your Roon Remotes get disconnected and you’re presented with the “Searching for Core” screen?
What happens if you try to start the output to your iPhone’s internal speaker? Do you still notice issues for this zone as well? You can enable the iPhone speaker output under Roon Settings -> Audio when using the iPhone Roon app.
Having tested this for an hour or so, running the iPhone and Poly zones at the same time, I can report that the poly dropped connection 4 times and the iPhone only once when playing through the phone speaker. When I use AirPod Pros with the iPhone zone it seems to drop out more frequently. After the music stops, with both zones I get the “lost connection” message and sometimes the core won’t find either device unless I restart the app and/or the core. It’s a bit inconsistent though.
As an update, I changed some things around and connected the NUC directly to the primary wifi access point (connected directly to the modem). It does seem to have improved the situation. I’ll monitor it and will report back.
