"Roon lost control of this Device" - Sonos Play:5

Faced similar issue yesterday on a Sonos Play 5, getting this message every time trying to play a track (after few seconds). It won’t play. Worked around de-activating then reactivating the Play 1 in audio settings.

I am confident the Play 5 was in ok shape as I could play on it with Sonos App while not with Roon. Would suspect something like a Roon kept old assigned IP for the device (unlikely as those are rarely changed) or got stuck in some control protocol state machine.

Hi @Patrick_LP,

So we can better assist you, please provide a brief description of your current setup using this link as a guide.

Make sure to describe your network configuration/topology, including any networking hardware currently in use, so we can have a clear understanding of how your devices are communicating.

If this behavior occurs again can you please note the exact local time + date in your country of occurrence as well as which track was playing and which track it skipped to?

This will be useful in case we need to investigate the behavior further. Thank you.
