The PC was custom built by me a couple of years ago, primarily for workstation use.
Windows 10 Pro N 64 Bit
AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Overclocked to 3.7ghz (problem persists even with the overclock disabled)
16 GB of DDR4 ram running at 2933mhz
Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti
I am using Roon directly on my PC to listen to headphones, I do not use any of the networking or server features, I simply use Roon as a music player. Completely ignoring any network ability that Roon has. The computer is plugged into my Netgear router via an Ethernet port.
I am using a Schiit Modi 3+ connected via USB to my computer. (With my Schiit Asgard 3 and a Sennheiser HD800S)
I also have an HDMI television plugged in, however Roon is only used with my Schiit Modi 3+.
~ Around 8750 Tracks, a Mixture of local flac files, with a very tiny amount of 320 kbps MP3 (less than 100 tracks) and a bunch of Tidal tracks, some with MQA.
Roon randomly crashes when manually switching songs (About every 30 songs on average), The song keeps playing but Roon no longer responds and I am forced to force it to close via task manager in order to restart the program. It seems to happen much more frequently when MQA files are played (I use Roon’s built in software support for MQA, I have no hardware that is capable of decoding MQA files)
The player can still crash even when not reading MQA files, but about 80% of my crashes happen upon me selecting an MQA file to be played. The player stops responding about 2 seconds after the selection of a song, The song keeps playing and Roon seems to still be working, however the user interface is non responsive, no matter how long you wait for it to come back, the only way to get it working again is to force shut down the program via the Windows task manager.
This wasn’t an issue until about a month ago, and I have used Roon for over a year with no issues with the exact same setup.
This issue does not seem to occur when the music automatically switches at the end of a song, it only happens when manually selecting a new song.
I just want to add that I absolutely love Roon and I have no desire to switch to any other music player, so finding a fix would be appreciated. I have no other computers in my house that are capable of hosting a Roon server so I cannot test to see if Roon is stable on another machine. Thank you so much for your help.
