Roon keeps dropping out. I’m playing Roon, and the songs will stop, and I get an error ‘Roon lost control of audio’. Why ??
Set Up Below. I know, this isn’t the ideal set up, however I’m currently work from my main home and having to make do.
Source : Tidal
Win 10 PC i7 32 GB - Roon Core & Client. - Wired.
Sonos Fives - Wired, and is the only zone. Sonos Streaming enabled, via AirPlay disabled.
The Win 10 PC is only used as the Roon Core / Client, and internet browsing, and isn’t running anything intensive.
This is it very frustrating as, when Roon drops out I open the Sonos app on the Win10 PC, browse to the same album on Tidal, and it plays every time, with out any drop outs or failures. So, why Does Roon keep dropping out ?
It’s not Wi-Fi as everything is wired, and I can play via Sonos app, using the same source (Tidal).
CORE - Win 10 PC, i7-7700 @4.20Ghz, 32 GB Ram
OS Windows 10 Pro, version 21H1. CLIENT - As Above.
AUDIO - Sonos - Pair of Fives. (only single zone).
- Sonos Streaming Enabled, Airplay Disabled for Fives.
AUDIO SOURCE - Tidal.
Sonos Beam. (Wired).
All Sonos components show as Wired, due to Mesh
I’ve been using Roon for over 12 months, and this has been happening regularly. I had previously put this down to poor Wi-Fi & ISP provider drop outs.
However, I’ve changed to Fiber ISP, increased download speed by 50%, and I’ve connected Sonos & PC via a Ethernet cable, and internet connection is stable, and regularly speed test, but I’m still having the same problem.
‘Roon has lost control of Audio Device’
This doesn’t re-connect, by pressing play again, and unable to play again.
However, I can play the same Album from Tidal, using the Sonos app on the Same PC, without dropouts or failures.
