Roon stops playing multiple times when first played

Problem I’m having is that Roon stops playing, seemingly regardless of Streaming service used, a couple times when I first start using it. Then it will do one of two things 1) skip to the next song and continue playing or 2) stop playing all together. I can stream Tidal and Quboz directly to my Sonos Connect and have never had similar issues…so I don’t think it is a problem with streaming service or network bandwidth. Also the problem happens if I stream to my McIntosh (wired) and/or Sonos speakers (wireless).

It happens almost every time I start playing music for the first time that day. However, after a couple start/stop/skip/play events it seems to start playing without stopping or skipping randomly.

Any troubleshooting ideas?
