Description Of Issue

when streaming music to my devices (TIDAL as well as server based music) since recently the tracks are unpredictably skipping to the next title.
I reinstalled the whole system, the problem is still going on …

I had a similar problem that turned out to be due to a home networking problem. If there’s a slow connection and downloading can’t keep up with real time then the track will be skipped. A buffer error will show on Roon for a brief period while it attempts to load the next track. Not sure if that’s what is affecting your setup.

Thanks, I will check out;-)

Hi @Volker_Oschkinat,

Welcome to the forum! If you try to start playback to your Mac Core’s System Output zone, do you notice any difficulties starting playback there?

Hi Noris,
up till now I did not use Macs system output (see my statement audio devices used). I will give it a try and respond in due time. thanks for now.
