Description Of Issue

Playback from local library and tidal hick up for a second once or twice, than skip track. Happens with all tracks MQA, CD, MP3.
Saw that this problem is widely spoken here. Tried: delete roon cache, Tidal cache, Disable 2.4Ghz (that is much slower), reinstall roon altogether, reset the streamer (which supposed to be roon ready), changed DNS (Google and Cloudflare), flush dns.
No resolution.

I have managed to overcome the issue by increasing the processing speed. I changed to 4 cores. Hope it’s permanent fix.
