Description Of Issue
having been running Roon successfully for a few days I have now started to experience “hangs” from the Roon core. They manifest as the Roon Remote GUI not responding when I move from a screen to another (for example “Album” view to “Overview” or “Tidal” or “Artist”). There seems to be no correlation to whether the requested information is stored locally (i.e. accessing my locally ripped CDs) or remotely (i.e. Tidal).

The RoonServer log is filled with error messages. Please use the link below to access the logfile.

Please help.


Hi @Hans_Wallentin,

Just to clarify, you are using only your iPad Pro as a Roon Remote and this is the where you are seeing the issue occur? If you have any other Roon Remotes, does the issue occur there as well?

I would also try to reinstall the Roon Remote app from the App Store to see if that helps.

the same issue occurs from other remotes as well; an Android phone and a MacBook Air.

Still waiting for this ticket to be responded to.

Hello @Hans_Wallentin,

Thanks for confirming that this issue occurs on multiple remotes.

Can I please ask that you try the Macbook remote let me know:

  1. The exact local time + date of the slow down
  2. Send me a new RoonServer logs folder
  3. Send the Roon UI logs from your Mac (you can access by using these instructions)

Once I have this information, we can try to match up the timestamps in both logs to see if there are any patterns, thanks!
