iMac 5K running macOS Big Sur (11.4) running Roon core (1.8.806).
Comcast internet via DOCSIS 3.1 (Motorola) through Synology router. Roon plays through PS Audio DS Sr wired to router. iMac wired to router. No WiFi used to play music or internet stations.
PS Audio DS Sr wired to router, as stated above.
2400+ albums, 33000+ tracks.
Comcast is having issues for the past week in my area. DL and UL speeds are not consistent; and UL speeds can drop to almost zero before bouncing up again. This means that any station I’m listening to drops. The amount of time between drops varies.
I can go in as soon as the drop occurs and start the station again (on the order of a few seconds for this to take place). It gets so bothersome at times that I build a queue of my local albums (no streaming services) and play that way.
Given the nature of the internet, I would think that error recovery would be more robust. Right now, it seems that Roon assumes an always ‘good’ connection, and the first ‘glitch’, drops the connection with an error. Certainly some sort of retry count with a pause between each retry would be in order (if not already there). It could even mean starting the connection from scratch.
I saw a post in the Features Request category, but I take this as a support issue.
