This issue is one of two issues driving me nuts with 1.8 (the other is Tidal streaming is giving me errors). Both issues however are resolved (at least temporarily) by restarting the
roonserver service on my Ubuntu box. Finally I just set a cron job to restart the service every morning at 5am which seems to help a lot.
For those suggesting it might be “networking problems”, I’ll just say I’ve had the job title of “Networking Engineer” and the only thing having issues on my network is Roon. Tidal streaming using the Tidal app works fine. My Core & Endpoints are connected via ethernet so no concern of wifi issues. Also, if it’s a “networking issue” why does restarting
roonserver fix it every time? Note that restarting the endpoint doesn’t help.
Never had the endpoints issue with 1.7. The Tidal streaming issue was occasional, but 1.8 is about 10 times worse.
