Hello @support team
I am running Roon Server on a QNAP NAS and would like it to display on the NAS HDMI output. QNAP has a feature called the HD station that allows selected apps to render via HDMI. One such app is the Chrome browser, so I have opened it and directed it to the roon display web URL… but it does not work:
- The browser does not get recognized as a roon display device
- the browser renders the roon logo but the following error appears in the chrome console log:
Uncaught syntaxerror: unexpected strict mode reserved word
the chrome browser version is 38.0.2125.104 unkown (64-bit)
Is there any specific requirement as far as the Chrome browser is concerned ?
At this time we only support the compatible devices on this list: https://kb.roonlabs.com/Displays but I have forwarded your request to the tech team to see if we would be able to support other platforms in the future.
I believe your Chrome version ( 38.0.2125.104 ) is from 2014. Chrome on my Windows 10 computer shows this for About Chrome:
Google Chrome is up to date
Version 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (64-bit)
I don’t know if QNAP offers an up to date version, you would need to check with them.
Are you able to update this to a newer version? Maybe in the QNAP App Center?
Is your QNAP fully updated to the latest firmware?
Unfortunately I am not. The Chrome update button is not available ! I understand this is due to the fact that they are embedding a community edition of chrome which cannot be updated. And yes I am using the latest firmware available for my NAS model.
I think qnap is notoriously bad at upgrading search party software . so creating a simple qnap package embeding Chrome to act as a web display would probably be a good fit for all qnap HD station user running roon on their NAS…
Perhaps we should ask Christopher Reike to build one -) ?
