Unable to stream from Roon to HomePod

Network Details (Including networking gear model/manufacturer and if on WiFi/Ethernet)

Asus Router/Wi-Fi. Core on Ethernet, HomePod on Wi-Fi AC 5.4Ghz

Audio Devices (Specify what device you’re using and its connection type - USB/HDMI/etc.)

Description Of Issue

Roon “sees” homepod on network and creates an airplay audio device labeled “AudioAccessory1,1”. I enable the device and go to settings :

When I try to send audio to the device, it appears to start playing but the time does not advance, nor does any audio/sound come from the homepod.

I can send music from other apps on my iPhone or iPad, e.g., Qobuz, Amazon Music, etc.

I have reset the homepod several times and tried various things w/out success.

Help appreciated.

Hello @steve_smith1, could you enable this setting and let me know if you continue having this issue?

Hi @nuwriy,

I enabled it and I no longer have the issue. I did not even know it existed.

Thank you!

Just one, what does resolution music and format does Airplay send to the homepod? I.e., if I send 192/24 FLAC to over roon what is played?
