Description of Issue

I always get a delayed start when starting tracks (streaming) local files work fine, I have tried adding a delay via both Roon GUI and also the Auralic Aries G1 and this doesn’t improve anything.

I think your Dream Machine is having having delusions of grandeur :wink:

Try using non ISP DNS entries like or and make sure you are not using VPN. You might need to do this using fixed IP addresses on the Nucleus and NUC and or address reservations in the UDMP interface and settings on the WAN for DNS

NBN sucks at the best to times…I feel for ya.

Thanks I do love my Unifi eco set up :slight_smile:

I will try the DNS entries tonight and see if that does anything.

Not using a VPN and I have all my components IP’s reserved.

NBN does suck :slight_smile:

Thanks for the help

Hi @Barry_Joyce

Did things improve with the DNS change? Google or Cloudflare DNS are definitely good options, and we’ve seen changing DNS help quite a bit for folks having similar issues.
