Here’s the setup: Roon server running on purpose-built PC with Linux OS. Endpoints: Sonore Ultrarendu, Elac Discovery (using only as an endpoint), Apple TV. two PCs running Squeezesoft. Controlling this using Roon app on iPad or on one of the connected PCs.
Network: Server hard wired to wireless router, Dlink wireless hub in next room connected via WPS and all endpoints connected to this hub.
This setup was working rock solid until just recently.
The Sonore and the Elac are Roon Ready endpoints. It is only with these that I see a problem. ALL the other devices are rock solid with no issues whatever.
The problem is the Roon Ready endpoints keep losing connection to the server. Roon sees the endpoint, music starts playing, then the endpoint disappears from Roon for a few seconds (the music stops) and then it (usually) returns. This behavior is repeatable and seems connected to recent software updates. Sometimes the Roon Ready endpoints do not appear at all and I have to start and stop the Roon control app several times to “find them.” Then the behavior described returns.
I tried bypassing the wireless section of the network by running a temporary Ethernet cable across the house connected directly from the main router to a separate temporary hub with just the Roon Ready devices connected to it. The behavior was the same, so it has nothing to do with the wireless connection.
I do not accept that there is something wrong with my network. If this was the case, why do the Squeeze and iOS devices play back with no issues from the same network connection? I might also add that this same wireless hub setup is used to stream HD Video to my ROKU, and it is rock solid.
Is Roon aware of this issue with the Roon Ready software? What can I do to fix this as it is unacceptable.
