Microsoft Surface Pro 7 with Windows 10 Home, i5, 8Gb RAM
Core is on wifi, connected via USB to DAC and via wifi to other google cast end points
See above. The USB dac is Minidsp SHD
Description of Issue
It has all worked flawlessly until this morning. Then the Core has started to have issues finding my audio devices (they appear under settings/audio but I cannot connect to these). After many reboots and after waiting several minutes after Roon has started, the USB dac appeared. So I started to stream to it but all the songs I tried, from Tidal or Qobuz, would not start.
It appears that my Core has had a firmware update yesterday, not sure if that is the issue.
(Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast!)
I would be pretty sure that is the reason, be a heck of a coincidence if not.
However the trick now would be working out just what part of the update affected you and Roon playing nicely.
I tried to uninstall Roon and reinstall it. It fixed it initially, but after I restored the backup that I had made prior to uninstalling it, the issue came back. Is there a way to restore only the library, but not all the settings?
Thank you Kirsten.
I do not think the issue is my router, let me explain why.
If I reinstall Roon and launch it WITHOUT restoring my previous back up, everything works to perfection.
Then I restore the backup, and roon becomes unable to connect to any of my audio zones, whether these are wireless or directly connect to the core via USB, or even the sytem output! See below:
Well it seems I was wrong. I tried to connect the core to the router via LAN and all the end points magically appeared. Then I unplugged the LAN cable and went wifi, and all the end points were still there. It seems all good now. I have no idea why briefly connecting the LAN cable woke it up, it makes no sense to me.
