End point is Aesthetix CD Transport/DAC connected via USB Class 2

So Roon now able to see Core
The problem is that Roon does not see my library nor my output device
A screen shot of set up indicates that i am missing Codecs. Tried to download and install but not going well.
Can anyone walk me through this process. I have little experience with type of procedure

Hey Derek,

error reaching site

Hey Derek,

can you elaborate on “error reaching site”?

  1. you can not access ROCK?
  2. you can not access the file to download for codec
  3. or sth else?

Run a scan with an app like FING to find your IP address on the new network, assuming you are sure if DHCP and fixed IP setup. Failing that maunbe you have a bad cable or connection is not correct.

hi Yaohan
Roon will see the Core
and will play music on my laptop
it does not see my library connected to the Nuc nor any of my output devices

What external port are you using usb-a or usb-c?

External power for which device?

Port sorry edited for the external music drive and what format is the drive?

no external port on laptop
on Nuc not sure

nuc using ethernet
allo bridgecusing usb 2 options i believe om the bridge

I think it’s a good idea you draw a diagram of what is connected to what. You seem to be fighting 2 issues. ffmpeg and a library drive connection.

Was rock even an option 6 years ago? Specific hardware details might be an idea too
