I also get the same error message but every single time I try to play a tidal track in roon (full install windows 10)… The track plays for a couple of seconds and then stops.
I have no issues with Tidal app alone.
I also have kind of the same issue when I try to play a track from disk (not at all related to Tidal). Even though the error message says something about “an audio file is loading slowly…” Track plays for like 3 seconds
Disk is ssd and not over network… so should not be a problem. And I have not have the problems described above before either, same hardware. I have not run Roon for a while so I dont know for how long it has been like this.
But! Here is the thing. Above issues I have when I run my chord 2 qute dac in exclusive mode wasapi (once again, did not have the issues on this hardware and setting before). If I change settings and run though system output I have no issues. Either tidal playing in Roon or playing files from disk. Which I would like to say means that the error messages we see are really not friendly from an error search perspective. Of course the track is available in Tidal, and also there is no performance issue in transport of the file. It seems like errors come from the playback side, Roon sending data “outside of roon”?
By the way the signal path when running with my chord there are no fancy stuff going on:
Roon says Source–>This Pc roon advanced audio transport --< wasapi exclusive mode
Hope this can give som new ideas into solving this mystery!
