Description of Issue

Hi All. While I am waiting for my streamer to be Roon Ready I am playing Roon via Chromecast from my 2012 Mac Mini as the core. Pretty much every time I start a new session Roon won’t play via Chromescast, the music “bars” are moving up and down but the time indicator won’t move and no sound. I have to restart the Roon Core (software restart) and it works.

Using the same setup I can always play via Airplay so only a Chromecast issue.

Anyone else have this issue and are there any solutions?

Hey @Nathan_Taylor

We’re sorry to hear that you’ve been having issues with connecting to your endpoint using Chromecast. Can you let us know the model/manufacturer of your router, and any switches, range extenders, powerline adapters, etc, you are using in this setup?

Some router brands need specific configurations set, which we have outlined at the end of our Networking Best Practices Guide .

Can you please try a reset of the Chromecast via the iPad app and let us know if it helps with the issue? We’ve seen other customers have success with this.
