Alarm Clock v0.8.2 is now available
It has been over a year since the last update but now I got something new for you.
I got a request to add grouped zone support to the Alarm Clock, the issue being that if the output of an alarm is part of a grouped zone then the other outputs of the group don’t adhere to e.g. the fading settings. It took some time to find out how to do it but, as the grouping of zones is a important feature of Roon, I did the necessary refactoring of the code to make it happen.
When setting up an alarm you still select an output (the primary) This should be the output that’s most critical in performing the action (e.g. the one that wakes you). If this output is part of a grouped zone and it is a Play alarm you can set individual volume levels for each output in the group. If you ungroup, the alarm remains working but then only for the primary output. If a fade in or fade out is selected for an output that is part of a group then all outputs of the group will fade.
Note: If an output of an alarm became part of a grouped zone after it was set then the current volume levels will be used for the secondary outputs.
As always, feedback is welcome.
How to install / update
The recommended way to install or update is via the Roon Extension Manager.
If the manager has auto update enabled then the changes will be pulled in the next time the update is performed. It is also possible to update manually via the Settings dialog, select the Alarm Clock from the Playback category and perform the update action.
Running the Docker container?
The tagging of the Docker image has changed, this means that this time you have to uninstall first, then update the Extension Repository to v0.3.14 and then re-install (don’t forget to setup the timezone as part of the installation).
Edit: v0.8.2 fixes a crash at core restart
