Sometimes I want to listen to Roon through my phone’s output directly, through my Bluetooth headphones or Bluetooth speakers. I do this while I work primarily, and am usually away from my phone.
For some reason, Roon works perfectly in this scenario, until about 5 minutes after the phone screen shuts off. Then it disconnects from my core, and I need to turn my phone back on to reconnect and manually resume playback. I tried keeping my phone unlocked when the screen is off, and the same thing happens.
Obviously this is a game breaker as far as just playing an album or playlist and being able to let it go. keeping my phone screen on would be a silly battery killer, so that is not a solution. Consequently, and disappointingly, I need to just use Tidal directly through their app, where this same scenario works perfectly. Their app is pretty good, but I would prefer to use Room and have access to my local library as well. Since Tidal works perfectly while the screen is off and the phone is locked for long periods, this tells me the issue is somewhere in the Roon app and not my phone settings.
I’m using a Google Pixel XL, and my core is a Nuc7i7 running ROCK. Hopefully someone knows of a solution to this, or at least the cause.
