Using Nucleus HDMI output direct to DAC. (Not Nucleus+.) One USB connection is used for a LaCie hard drive.
AT&T proprietary router. Nucleus is connected to ethernet from network switch. All other terminal devices in this LAN are operating normally. AppleTV, Sony Smart TV, and video disc player are all connected to this same network switch and are operating normally. Activity at Nucleus ethernet connector: green flashing, yellow constant; looks normal.
The controller device used routinely at the listening position is a MacBook Air running 12.3. This is a wi-fi connection and is verified reliable.
Using HDMI, extracting optical, direct connection to DAC Toslink.
The above-described setup has worked flawlessly since first installed last November. The Nucleus was ordered and shipped direct from Roon. Roon works flawlessly, no glitches.
Today I was notified of an update availability in the way usually seen every week or so, and I clicked on that. After this, Artists and Albums menu populations slowed considerably; album art dropped out, returned, dropped out again; some selections would not play, then no selections would play. I performed two backups in a row and both times got “backup failed” message. Performed an OS re-install and two reboots. Also tried logging out and logging in. After this particular move, the status quo is:
- Roon will play all selections that originate from the hard-drive. These are ALAC files ripped from CDs.
- Roon correctly shows it is signed in to Qobuz, but will not play any selection that originates from Qobuz.
- The library, album art, album notes, avatars, icons, discographies, suggested similar music, etc all seem to work normally now. I can navigate Qobuz via Roon in the regular manner, but any track that originates from the service, Roon sticks on pause. There is a track progress bar, but no movement.
- Log-in to Qobuz player directly verifies account is current and service is streaming content.
I haven’t an inkling of what to try next.
