I became a Roon User after trying to solve for months the airplay issues… a total waste of time. Now I can’t be happier. Thanks for such a great product!
The problem that I have is this…
I have a B&W A7 speaker in my room connected to my TV via Toslink, and for music I use a chromecast connected to the TV´s HDMI. This setup require the TV to be on to listen to music (from Roon without using airplay). To bypass the chromecast, I purchased a Raspberry 4 hoping to use the A7 USB (it has its own internal DAC) to deliver the music directly and also to be able to use Bluetooth so my wife can use ENDEL or similar apps to fall asleep.
Unfortunately if I use RoPieeeXL, Roon does not see the A7 and the Bluetooth doesn’t work either. Just to try to understand what could be happening I try a linux computer with Roon Bridge installed and it worked. Roon could see the A7. Then found an alternative to RoPieee called VitOS and I gave it a try, again Roon could see the A7 and Play music normally (Almost as Roon converts all 24 bit to 16bit, but the A7 can receive 24/96… but one problem at a time).
So based on this, is there something I can do to RoPieeeXL to allow Roon to see the A7 so I can use it as initially intended?
VitOS only has Roon capability via ethernet. RoPieeeXL has a lot more options.
Any thoughts or comments?
Thank in advance.
