Different VLANs for Chromecasts with forwarding and mDNS repeater enabled.
Chromecast works perfectly from any other VLAN (FW Rules for inter-VLAN from other VLAN to Chromecast VLAN, and FW Rules in opposite direction for connected/related state) when using iPhone, of PC or Linux to cast, from browser of from apps like Plex or Netflix or Youtube or TuneIN… iPhone and Roon Core are on the same VLAN. Airplay works perfectly as well with same types of rules. The approach looks like this one: https://help.ubnt.com/hc/en-us/articles/204959444-EdgeRouter-Router-on-a-Stick
All Wireless devices connected to APs with high signal / high quality, almost no packet dropped. Everything is controlled with Unifi Controller and I reviewed all the logs, no problem here.
Audio Devices (Specify what device you’re using and its connection type - USB/HDMI/etc.)
Chromecast, Airplay Express, HifiBerryDAC on Raspberry Pi
Description Of Issue
I am currently having issues with the product with my trial and those issues are a show stopper. I would like to know if you are aware of those (I have seen some post but no confirmation or answer from your team) and what can we expect.
There are roughly 10 000 flac files accessible through nfs. Tidal Hifi account linked to Roon.
I see my chromecast audio (1.39.154182), my normal chromecast (1.39.154182) but when I click on enable (from a PC with Roon as a Control or from an iPhone) nothing happens. No error, no box to name it. Same problem with Chromecast Audio and regular Chromecast.It works with any other app than Roon, from the same computer where there is the core server as well as from any app on the iPhone. Roon see both Chromecast with the right IPs.
I can see the Airplay from the Airport Express and enable it. But when I select it as the output, nothing happens. It works with any other app than Roon, from the same computer where there is the core server as well as from any app on the iPhone. Weird thing, the IP of the Airplay is 192.168.104.102 but Roon sees it as 169.254.6.195 (an APIPA address).
I can play on other outputs such as the iPhone (and then redirect the stream to the Airplay from the iPhone, but then I am killing my battery)
I can play on another computer with Windows 10 and Roon, on regular speakers.
- Search is extremely slow. Between 40 seconds and 4 minutes. The auto-complete when I type in the search box is fast, it’s when I click on one of the results that it takes hours. Let’s say I type Miles Davis (it appears in real time), it then takes 2 minutes to get the page with the results with my albums and tidal albums. This is true from the iPhone app of from Windows 10 Computer with Roon.
Browsing albums or tracks or artists is extremely fast. The issue is only the search feature.
When I search albums or artists using Tidal app (Windows and iPhone) the result is immediate.
Same performances with Plex App: it has the same Tidal account and link to the same flac files and search is fast and furious. So I would not blame the network.
I did all the basic stuff like rebooting wifi, core network, APs, Server with Roon Core, check Network logs, etc… and could not find anything. Strange thing, if I install a linux VM on the same computer where Docker Roon Core runs and execute it with Wine, the search seems faster! Still issues with the Airplay and Chromecast.
It took hours to import all my music so I cannot just spawn a Windows VM to check it. Unless I can copy the database easily from linux to windows? Is the format compatible?
Pease advise before the end of my trial,
