Description of Issue
I have a new Roon account and cant connect to my Altair G1
- Used Lightning DS app and enabled Roon
- Cant find roon core on IPad using roon app (roon or roon essentials)
- Cant find roon core using windows PC app
4, tried to find the solution - perhaps with router? Enabled Multicast in LAN setting - still not working.
I’m a little confused here.
Where is your Roon Core located?
The Altair is the streamer but the Roon core must be on something?
the Auralic Altair G1 is a roon ready all in one streamer, dac
But you still need to host Roon Core somewhere.
Like on a window PC or macmini.
All the Altair does is stream and render Roon.
It is not the actual Roon Core.
I am confused too. I thought i could just use the Roon application instead of lightning DS (auralic app)
to control my streamer, connect to streaming, and see the internal SSD
I need to have a server with roon?
ok so what is the general recommendation? run the roon core on a network pc ? or raspberry pi, etc? where is the core app for downloading?
Most people start out running the Roon core on a Windows or Apple laptop or computer. Some run it on a NAS. It requires a computer. It won’t run on a phone, tablet, or Raspberry Pi.
Hi @William_Rubin! It looks like you were in great hands with @TheHammer and @Jim_F
I wanted to check in and see if you had any issues setting up a Roon Core and to see if you had any questions?
