So the matter is solvable with the likely problem something to do with your home networking. It’d be really helpful if you could provide more information about your setup so Roon and/ or the community may assist.
Well I have cut the cable and have a Bell Fibe connection, which is limited to 50mbs, and I just tested it and it is at spec. I tend to stream two videos at a time, on two tv’s with Roon in the background. In the last 2 weeks, Roon cuts out and gives the check connections message. I switch to the BluOs app and it plays fine. Never seen this before, Roon up to date. computer up date. I am going to use a ethernet connection to the Bluesound Node that I use for music streaming, to see if that has a impact.
I still have a few months of my script left, but if this continues I might be leaving my much loved Roon experience.
Does this same behavior occur without the two TVs running? It seems like you are right on the edge with a 50mb connection, the two videos might be using up the remaining available bandwidth on your network.
This is a good idea, as well as testing other zones for this behavior. I would try “System Output” on your Mac Mini to verify if this is a Node issue or a Core/Networking issue.
I understand that this behavior does not occur in the BluOS app, but the BluOS app does not work in the same way as Roon does. It streams directly to your endpoint while Roon has a server + endpoint architecture, meaning that there are a bit more hops before the audio reaches the endpoint in Roon’s case. Please run the two above tests I mentioned and we can gather some more information regarding this issue:
