I’ve had an encounter today, it seems both issues are related. Here’s what happend (see the screenshots attached):
2018-12-08, 16:47 (CET): Brad Mehldau, 1st Track started after fresh start of the remote. Core started just before by logging in on the core Macbook (before, another user was logged in).
After That: Next Song (2 - 29 Palms) playing, Playhead moving, but displayed title ist still “1 - Los Angeles”.
(On stella core for this zone, there’s the same state, also on the Android remote):
16:59: Nothing Playing. Track 2 was the last. Seems it has not quite finished playing. Track 1 peak meters animated, playhead not moving.
17:01: Have manually restarted track 3 "
Song playing, playhead not moving.
17:02 Restarted Roon Core on Stella. Waited on estella for core to be ready. Started Track3 > nor everythings’s as expected.
Setup as described in the beginning of this thread.
How often does this behavior occur?
Once in a while, irregularly.
Does it always stop at the same content?
Don’t think so, see above – recovery.
Have you noticed any patterns as to what causes this behavior? Specific types of content (Switching from one sample rate to another, etc)?
Have you noticed this behavior with any other endpoints?
Not yet, but actually I just use my Linn Klimax for now.
If you use another remote device to connect during this time do you see the same behavior?
Yes, see above. Same on all remotes so far.
Can you confirm that the firmware on the Linn is fully up to date?
Yep. See setup descripton.
