I just purchased a new Mac mini that is running the latest version of Big Sur. Mac mini (M1, 2020) macOS Big Sur version 11.1). 8 gb ram and 500 gb SSD.
I transferred my Roon core to this new mac mini. It is the latest version of Roon. Version 1.7 (build 710) stable. Roon is the only program I have or run on the Mac mini, which I purchased intending to use only to play my music files using Roon.
My music files are stored on an 8TB HHD connected with a USB cable to the Mac mini.
The Mac mini is connected by a USB cable to a PS Audio Direct Stream DAC.
It plays beautifully, but Roon keeps “quitting unexpectedly” after an hour or so of my launching it. It quits even when I am playing music.
I have called Apple and they assure me that I have all the settings right to make sure the hard drive does not go to sleep. Still, after about an hour or so, Room keeps quitting, again even when I am listening to music.
Why is this happening? What is the fix?
