Description of Issue

On the Mac mini that runs Roon Server also runs Virtualbox, which I updated yesterday to brand-new version 7. Never had any problems with this, but with version 7 I start to see issues coming as soon as a VM is started. Roon app immediately looses connection to the Roon Core and from time to time gets back connection, but you’re not able to play anything. Also all WLAN audio devices disappeared in Roon App.
As soon, as the VM has been stopped, everything is back to normal and Roon Server works as expected via the app.
I now, downgraded again to Virtualbox 6 and everything works again. As Virtualbox 7 is essential when switching my Mac to MacOS Ventura, I ask if somebody saw also this behavior and if there is an easy solution via Virtualbox settings.
