@Carl suggested, can you confirm which remote device is experiencing this issue?
Any change after a reboot or reinstall?
Hi, as mentioned above, I am using a Xiomi MI 2 , with Android Nougat as Roon remote. Yes, I did a install , un-install and it did not have an impact. I have rebooted both the roon server and the phone multiple times, as of today.

As we continue to push Roon’s graphical capabilities forward, we’ve become aware of issues related to some older graphics chipsets. Over the last few weeks our team has acquired a number of older devices, which have allowed us to better understand how their drivers are misbehaving and work around these limitations.
Today’s release addresses a number of hardware releases, along with…
