Description of Issue

Someone recommended I put this here. Last night I was listening to music as I went to sleep. I’d set a sleep timer in Roon on my iPad connected to Topping DX3 Pro, but something too noisy came on and I switched off the DAC and active Audioengine A2+ speakers.

I was later woken at 3:30am by music playing in my living room on my Pi 3B+ connected to Topping MX5 and passive speakers. . Looking through my history, it seems the music never stopped played but at some point switched from the iPad in my bedroom to my Pi endpoint in the lounge room.

Is that expected behaviour?

I’m not sure it was loud enough to annoy the neighbours, but it was loud enough to wake me up. Is that something I did or a Roon issue? What do I need to learn, please?

Thank you.

Happened again! Last night I was playing music through my iPhone’s Bluetooth connection to my Topping DX3 Pro to 2A+s, through Roon with a sleep timer. Music stopped and I went to sleep. Woke around 1:00am with music playing through my Ropiee endpoint in my lounge room, attached to the MX5 playing through Q Acoustic 3020is. It hadn’t stopped when the sleep timer was up. It just moved to a different room. :rofl:

Click on the device ICON in the lower right corner and make sure nothing is playing on any other devices.

Thank you. That’s what I do when I’m woken up by the music playing in the other room. Not much of a sleep timer if it moves the music rather than turns it off.

Aaah, I think I know what you mean now. I thought, obviously incorrectly, that to play in more than one place at a time I’d have to group speakers the way you do with Google devices. I didn’t think you could just fumble fingers more than one in the menu and play in more than one place that way. Lesson learned. Thank you. If I were doing that I’d have to put a sleep timer on both devices … not that I’ve ever done that on purpose, but I get it now. Thank you.
