Description Of Issue

After year of no issues, updated today on SonicTransporter core, various Google Home devices, Android 8 Active phone, and HP Pavilion (=remote device too). All works well except HP computer?? Opens for 1 second, then closes. No messaging, no errors shown. PC has never had issues ever. 1st time to have issues . Only on the Windows 10 PC. All devices on same network, etc. Nothing different other than 1.8 update. Android phone, my core ST look like they are working fine. Just not normal WIN PC. Please advise.

Hi @Dcrook23 ,

Can you please try to reinstall Roon on the HP PC and let us know if that helps?

  • Make a Backup of your current Roon Database
  • Exit out of Roon
  • Navigate to your Roon’s Database Location
  • Find the folder that says “Roon”
  • Rename the “Roon” folder to “Roon_old”
  • Reinstall the Roon App from our Downloads Page to generate a new Roon folder

Since the HP is not the Core, you shouldn’t lose any data, but I would make a backup just in case.
