Ropieee XL DLNA behaviour

I wondered if some behaviour I’ve noticed on Ropieee XL is expected?

I run an instance on an RPi4. My Logitech Media Server can play to this using the UPnP Bridge plugin. However, once it does so, it appears to gain exclusive control over the device.

Spotify Connect will not work and Roon reports not being able to gain control of the device.

Rebooting solved the problem.

Not a big problem, I just wondered if this was expected?

This is expected behaviour. The DLNA software claims the device (as does the other services as well), so it’s a matter of ‘who comes first’.

Most services (Roon/RAAT for example) release the lock on the device after a few minutes not being active.
