I feel my Roon remote app to be slow. For instance, when I launch the app after a long time, and I click on home button, it takes 16 sec to refresh the display on my Samsung gs 10 5G. I want it to be quicker. Then when I scroll below to show “new release for you” and “daily mixes” it can take awhile as well.
Is there anything I can do to accelerate my system?
Is there any setting to put on my android device?
Thanks for your time and recommendations.
I am NOT an expert on this, so please take the following as just an idea:
As far as i could find something about it, Read/Write speeds are quite slow
3.100 MB/s / 1.600 MB/s
For my i7 NUC I use a Samsung 970 EVO Plus 250GB M. 2 SSD
3.500 MB/s / 2.300 MB/s
The following thread might be interesting for you:
One more idea:
Could it be that this ISP router is a bit underpowered and overloaded? ISP routers are usually not the most suitable.
Furthermore, your NAS, does it have enough power? I don’t use a NAS myself, but a fast internal SSD in my NUC, which is probably faster.
Are you sure that it has no effect, just on speed, if the music is stored on a NAS or an internal SSD?
I recall reading that internal storage still brings a little more speed than the probably slower route via the local network.
I’ll try to remember more clearly…
Thanks for your answers.
Isnt it reading speed that is the most important? Would that matter much to move from 3000 to 3500 ?
I see some nvme disk that can go up to 7200 reading speed would that make any difference?
I have also read that a slow NAS to store the music would not make a difference. The ssd storing the DB being the most important. I have not tried myself.
As I said, I’m not an expert on different hardware.
I hope someone else chimes in.
Just another thought:
If your NUC has a fan, have you ever checked if your machine is getting hot during use?
If Roon used to be snappier and faster for you, overheating could also be a reason. CPU thermal throttling can invertedly slow an applications response-time.
AFAIK there are no tools that Roon would offer to end users. Hence I would contact support.
Re setting up the temporary core - this could be a non destructive way (re your current core and db) to test performance from another machine. Simply create a new Roon Core on a MacBook or Windows laptop and import your db from backup. If that is more responsive than your Rock, it’s either a hardware issue or a db corruption.
That doesn’t seem logical to me, could you kindly explain?
If the core on another machine would be more responsive than the core on the NUC Rock, I would assume it’s a hardware issue. Because the database would be just the same, imported from a backup.
Or am I misunderstanding and the database on a new core machine would NOT be identical to the old one on the NUC Rock?
A lot of the content on the home page, particularly if you have one or more linked services (e.g. Qobuz and Tidal) can take a while to fetch, especially if you’re not based in the US. Try disabling Tidal and/or Qobuz (Settings → Services → Edit). If this makes a difference the delays you’re experiencing are probably down to the latency between you and the relevant servers. If Roon remains sluggish then the cause lies elsewhere.
