Roon/Qobuz stops playing after a few seconds

OSX 10.11.6/Roon 1.6 Build 416

Macbookpro on wifi USB cable to miniDSP SHD dac

On certain albums, Roon/Qobuz stops playing the first track after a few seconds (10). Then this problem recurs in all of the tracks on the album. Clearing the queue and restarting Roon doesnt fix the problem.

Is your Roon core on the same laptop? Your issue is likely to be the wireless connection. It’s not recommended to have a core on wireless as Roon is constantly pulling data and pushing it out . So if on wireless it can have a big impact on the available bandwidth as wireless is not full duplex meaning up/down comes out of the same bandwidth inlike wired where it’s not. If your on the cusp of your bandwidth then this is the likely cause especially when playing hires.

Can you try it on a wired to see if it helps?

I would also post your network kit and topography as this can help diagnose other issues.

Hi @Mark_Donen,

Welcome to the forum! Can you please clarify if this behavior occurs across multiple endpoints or just on the miniDSP zone?

What is your network setup like, can you let us know the model/manufacturer of all your networking gear and how your Core is connected (WiFi/Ethernet)? Is there any change in behavior if you connect via Ethernet?
