Description of Issue
I setup the Argon Audio Solo via Google Home and it works perfectly with Google, Spotify, Qobuz and casting direct to the device from a phone. However, it will not work with Roon. At first, I got a couple of errors stating something like lost control of device, input switched. That happened twice and since I can select the Solo from the Roon Ready listing as enabled on the Core, but nothing will play from either a PC or Android phone. No error, it shows the message it is starting and then just stops. I’ve rebooted the Core and the Router, and, on some occasions, it works for a short while and then when I go to change the input from an album to a radio stream it just stops and will not respond. I can see the Chromecast and Airplay options to enable on the Core and have tried the Chromecast, but it is glitchy. I can see in the logs there seem to be issues with Roon interacting with the Solo. I upgraded the Core to 2.0 recently. ARC is not currently setup.
Do you know if the Argon is connecting via WiFi to your TP-Link router on the 2.4 GHz WiFi band? That router’s specifications show a very limited 2.4 GHz capability (supporting only 802.11n, or WiFi 4), and is very limited in capacity.
Can you force the Argon to connect to the 5 GHz WiFi band and see if this corrects the behavior you are experiencing?
ISP Router is not in Modem mode yet, I have to do this to get ARC working. That aside, the Solo is connected on 5GHz. Issues remain the same. One thing I do notice is that the Roon Ready device disappears in Settings\Audio but the Airplay and Google devices for the Solo are still there. This seems to happen at random.
I built Windows 10 rather than Windows 11 from scratch on the same PC and gave it a different name. I then installed Roon 2.0 as a fresh install, removed the license from the old Core and re-imported the library and set up all the devices again. Now the Solo works perfectly. Thanks to everyone for your suggestions.
