iMac, latest Roon, iPhone 6S+, Melco N1A, Ayre QX-5 Twenty, Apple TV
For unexplained reasons, my Roon server stopped being able to see or steak to my current-generation Apple TV. It all otherwise works as expected. I rebooted everything and installed fresh software; and it all works fine except that I can’t stream Roon through my Apple TV. It used to work great, just a few days ago.
You should be aware that we strongly suggest staying away from Apple Networking Gear, as we have often seen poor performance from these types of devices, as mentioned in our Networking Best Practices Guide:
Finally, we strongly recommend against using Apple network devices such as the Apple Airport Extreme and Airport Express (note: it’s fine to use the Airport Express as an Airplay device). To ensure the best performance, we recommend against using these devices.
I am not saying that this is the definite cause just yet, but it is something to be aware of as we dive deeper into troubleshooting.
To clarify here, did you try re-installing Roon itself with a fresh database? I would give this a try:
This is way more elaborate than should be required. Things were working fine. I updated Roon. Things stopped working in that I can’t support my current use case, streaming music with Roon under Apple TV. Please let me know what I can do to fix this. “Reinstall everything” is not a very good answer.
You mentioned that you rebooted everything and installed fresh software, but I just wanted to check to see if you set the old database aside when you reinstalled, as setting the database aside might help.
What does your Settings -> Audio tab currently look like? Can you please share a screenshot of it?
