Description Of Issue
On my Roon application, the KEF LS50W and the Chromecast devices I have no longer appear.
I have restarted all my network gear.
I updated firmware on the KEFS
I’ve updated the Synology Roon Core and all associated software to the latest version.
I then read that Roon on Synology has issues when a virtual network device is also present. I did recently install the “Virtual Machine Manager” software from Synoloy and install a Win10 and Ubuntu VM. I have since uninstalled the VMM software and still my Roon core does not detect the Chromecasts or LS50W on same nework.
Do you have Open vSwitch enabled on the Synology? If you disable this is there any change?
HI there - I checked the settings and found yes, it was enabled.
I disabled it, restarted the Roon core on the Synology, and the KEF LS50W appeared again.
Thing is - I never enabled it in the settings, it must get enabled when installing Virtual Machine Manager, but uninstalling VMM does not disable it once uninstalled. I didn’t know this, or know that there was a separate setting buried away that I needed to check… I do now!
For anyone else who has this issue, please navigate to the following settings to disable Open vSwitch:
Control Panel > Network > Network Interface (Tab) > Manage (Button) > Open vSwitch Settings >Disable Open vSwitch
Thanks for your assistance Dylan!
