Its funny you mention that. None of my android devices work with roon remote if I use my AP’s on Mesh mode on my network.
I had to put my AP’s in Gateway mode and everything worked fine except for my backyard because there is no ethernet back there. So I have the AP disconnected to avoid meshing issues.
Does Google WiFi have the option to put your AP’s directly to ethernet?
I am looking at their specs and they do have ethernet ports.
For testing can you put two of your AP’s directly to your Ethernet network and see if the same behavior manifests?
By the way, I dont know googles wifi system so please investigate what happens when you have two ap’s connected on the LAN.
With OpenMesh they go in to GW mode automagically
After a considerable amount of testing, multiple network switches, multiple cables and configurations with those cables., different rooms even connection to a external hard drive, Roon won’t stay running in the STi5. Deleting Roon then reinstalling, reloading the Sonic Transporter software and voodoo chants didn’t help either.
Roon works perfect on my old desktop
Disappointing as I liked the transparency when it worked which was for a few weeks.
The NAS is working perfectly on my main rig. The external hard drive works perfectly everywhere else.
The Lindemann Musicbook is flawless including using its very own builtin server software. Roon and Lindemann work flawlessly using my main rig. I’m using a $1200 dollar power supply producing 12 volts which worked flawlessly on my CAP’s computer.
I’m sending it back but I was thinking I may try it at my buddies house this weekend as an epilogue.
Very interesting: So I go to Roon today on the I5 and notice that the iphone app is working flawlessly . Very puzzled ,i go into settings and notice there are ZERO files from my external hard drive showing(yes i have tried different hard drives). All
the files were Tidal music and the iphone app worked perfectly for the first time in many months.
I reforced a scan of the hard drive , it finished and guess what,all of my connection problems between the I5 and the Roon iphone are back.
That is an interesting observation. Makes me think, at some point, I had added a great many DSD files to my NAS drive. Linux should not care how big your library is but, my STi5 did have a period when new when it worked. I don’t know if there’s a correlation there (probably not), but typically, computer hardware either works, or it doesn’t even boot up. It’s why I spent so damn much time trying to figure this LGC out.
Since I’ve tested every option under the audio-sun I thought I’d try just running a 32GB thumb drive with a small set of FLAC files and 1 DSD file. It worked! For about 1 hour then Lost Connection. Wah wah wah…
