Description Of Issue
Got a prompt yesterday on iPad air that an update was available. I had heard to update i devices before core. Attempts to access Roon through i devices showed message that I could not connect to Roon. I then went to try to access core on the NUC. It was not running, but the logo in the tray was there, already changed to the new white one. Clicking on it produced a momentary little circle suggesting I had made contact, but it did not load.
Went out to your website and downloaded a new install .exe. I reinstalled. No change. I then uninstalled and reinstalled. No change. I downloaded a new .exe from a link Rebeka sent. No change.
Can you try this and let us know if there is any change?
You can generate a new RAATServer instance on your device by following these instructions, but please be aware that this will reset your Roon Settings → Audio Tab to factory settings and I would advise making a backup of any custom DSP settings you have:
A similar (but not identical) technique suggested by one of your colleagues solved most of my problems, but I now have the issue that Roon does not detect one of my two ultrarendus. They are both configured for Roon.
I’m not sure precisely what I did to fix it (reinitializing Roon Ready through MySonicorbiter didn’t work several times), but it is now working. My biggest problem now is that Multichannel DSD files bring hiccups and the “An audiofile is loading slowly” message. Two channel DSD works ok.
Just curious about why they should have shown up as Storage devices. They are audio devices and now show up under that settings tab.
Looking at the signal path, I can see that the processing speed is pretty low. When the processing speed is below 1, it can definitely result in issues like you’re seeing. Multichannel DSD is definitely more demanding than 2 channel, so a more powerful CPU might be necessary here to get the most out of your DSD content.
If not, a M1 Mac Mini? They seem to have a lot of horsepower.
Also, while I have your attention. Do you know why the Oppo has to be on and set on the USB input for any of the group to function? Or why trying to use the ethernet input on the Oppo not only doesn’t work, it also brings the system to a halt. Actually just hooking the Oppo into my network and turning it on brings Roon to a stop as well.
