Description of Issue

Every time I open Roon Remote on my phone, it attempts connecting to the Core on my pc, and the Remote app freezes and eventually crashes. My phone is a Google Pixel 3 running Android 12 with the latest version of Roon Remote.

Try removing the app, boot the phone and reinstalling.
I’m using a pixel 3 and android 12 and its working OK.

I uninstalled the app, restarted my phone, reinstalled it, and it still froze when connecting to Core

Thanks for reaching out! I’m still experiencing this

Hey @Andrew_Unruh,

Thanks for letting me know! The first thing to confirm is that your main Roon install is set up to accept connections from remotes. To do this, click the main Navigation menu (top-left of Roon) and select Settings. Next, click the Setup tab, and make sure “Accept connections…” is set to Yes .

After that, please check out this article for the next steps in troubleshooting.

Let me know if your issue persists after trying the above :pray:

I just checked and it’s already set up to accept connections from remotes. I remember once quite a while ago being able to use it to start playback on an album, but after that my remote has always frozen at startup when connecting to the core

So I wasn’t able to get adb working on my end (the usb-c port on my phone is very dirty, thus making a good connection unable to happen), but I think I was able to get logs for this. I’m going to send it over now.

Hey @Andrew_Unruh,

I wanted to check in on this, are you still running into issues with the newest build 970? If so, please send over a new set of logs after you’ve updated.

It was running fine for a while, and now the same kind of issue is showing up again. I’ll upload a bug report from this time around.

Hey @Andrew_Unruh,

Thanks for letting me know! If possible, could you try completely uninstalling Roon on your Android, and reinstalling it?

If you’re still running into this issue, please send over a timestamp of when this happens along with a set of logs to this link :

The issue has since resolved, thank you!
