Roon Core Version 1.8 850 / SonicTransport i5 v2.8 is causing my local library to consistently pause

What’s not working:
Since the update to Roon Core Version 1.8 850 on our SonicTransport i5 v2.8 my local library is pausing randomly. Sometimes a couple of times within a song, sometimes after 15 minutes of play or after several hours of play. Before the Linux upgrade on the SonicTransport, I had no playback issues and everything just worked. Andrew from SGC suggested I contact Roon Support. I don’t mind re-installing the Core software but want to try and avoid restoring the library from a backup, which has caused issues in the past (losing Genre info, duplicating albums, etc). Rebuilding the library is okay but do not want to lose my playlists. They system is basically unusable for playing music and I don’t want to revert back to iTunes for the holidays :blush:

How often does the issue occur:
Continually. Usually the music pauses within a few minutes. Sometimes if lucky it will play for a few hours. The pausing seems completely random.

If you’re having a crash or an issue that happens sporadically, it’s helpful if you can let us know an approximate time for when it last happened:
All day and too often, please see above

Let me know how this goes.

You should export your playlists as M3U files that way you will always have them even if you don’t restore you database.

Hi Support!

Can you give me an eta for a response. I really need some help to review the logs to see if this is a network issue or a software issue.



Thanks Andrew, good advice Waiting on support to respond.
