Description Of Issue
Whenever I start Roon and play music with it, I can never go back to playing from other sound/video sources on the same machine, even after closing Roon. I sometimes play random music files from MusicBee, or play video with PotPlayer or from YouTube, Netflix, HBO and so on, but I always have to restart the machine to do this. I have tried a lot of different settings, and if i switch to WASAPI and turn of exclusive mode, it works just fine, so I assume it is the exclusive mode that doesn’t release even after I close Roon.
As I use this machine as my main source both for work, everyday life and music station… it’s quite tiresome to do this several times a day. I often end up playing with exclusive mode off, but that takes away both from general SQ and MQA glitches on all of my Tidal albums. More and more lately I end up not using Roon at all on this machine… just play the files straight from Music Bee and Tidal.
Any fix for this?
