Description of Issue
Starting yesterday (10/23/21) playback began intermittently “freezing” during streaming from My List or radio. Playback doesn’t stop; “play/pause” button stays in play mode (showing “pause” button) but music simply stops playing and progress indicator halts.
Typically music resumes after 10-45 seconds at exactly the point playback froze; Occasionally “play/pause” button reverts to pause mode (showing “play” button) while progress indicator stays in same position, requiring pressing “play” to resume song – again from exact point where playback froze.
This issue seems to arise only during streaming playback from qobuz, not during playback from local files.
Is this issue related to “memory leak” issue associated with qobuz I have seen others posting about?
So, during the time between my contacting Roon and your reply, I did in fact do a hard reboot of both core and router (I even had a cup of coffee…). That was day before yesterday. Since, I have only had an opportunity to to run playback for a few hours. I did not experience the issue. I plan to listen for a longer period today and will report back on whether the problem recurs. Meanwhile, I’ll read through “Network Best Practices” and have another cup of coffee.
Excellent news! I think the cup of coffee was the key factor here!
Let’s keep an eye on things and hope the fix holds. I too experience occasional incidents of misbehavior from Roon. Albums that won’t add, a few skipped tracks here and there, 99% of the time (not a scientifically measured statistic) a restart fixes things.
That’s why you’ll frequently see a reboot as our first recommendation. The coffee was just a bonus add on.
