The library has been up and running for several weeks so I don’t think It’s related to analysis.
You did touch on something though regarding AAC and I assumed it was that as it would play certain tracks and that was the common denominator
As for Tidal. I’ve only ever had the Hifi account but it’s difficult to tell within the Roon app what is FLAC without selecting a track to play and it shows up on the LUMIN. Whereas the tidal App tells you this information. Is there something I have missed in viewing track information from tidal (or any other service) within Roon app?
I thought I had fixed it by refreshing the app within Qnap. It started playing any track I wished from Tidal.
As soon as I switched to Qnap (Roon Server) library, everything stopped playing again, including anything from Tidal.
So frustrating as I really like the idea of this but I’m loathe to join up with life time subscription if this happens.
Basically, if I bounce the Roon server service (does this as part of a update check) it allows me to start playing from Tidal again.
Do you mean refreshing the Roon app package in QNAP app center?
I don’t understand this - what do you mean by “switch”, since I think there’s only one Roon (Server) on your QNAP. Or you mean you switch from Lumin app to Roon Remote app? Please clarify.
Do you have another computer that you can use to run Roon and transfer your license there, at least temporarily? If another computer works, this proves the fault lies in the QNAP Roon installation, or the QNAP itself, then we can try to work on what went wrong with the Roon QNAP installation (despite its AAC limitation).
At present I do not have another option for setting up a Roon server on another computer.
When I say “switch” I’m referring to source. As soon as I switch from using Tidal source to music files stored on my Roon server, the process stops. I can no longer play any tracks from any source until I restart (bounce) the services on the Roon server. Be it Tidal or local files held on my Qnap (Roon server ).
So there is obviously something inherently wrong when accessing the data on the Qnap. Possibly some corrupt files? I’ve ran the cleanup utility. Unless there is something else I should be doing?
Installed the latest decoder files for FFmpeg and bounced the Roon service.
Also uninstalled Roon from my iPhone, rebooted and re installed. All stable now. No further crashing off the iPhone app for now.
