I’m wondering if anyone else here is using their Vero 4k with both OSMC and Roon. I’m successfully running Roon bridge on my device but after listening to music OSMC struggles with playback (really high resource utilization) until after a reboot. Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
I updated tonight to Kodi 19, watched a 4K UHD film, then tried to play some music. I noticed that I had to reinstall Roon Bridge, it was not running, some of the files were still there, but I decided to reinstall.(as root)
go into the App and configure the Zone, enable the device on the OSMC endpoint, it will find 3 audio devices, choose the first ALSA, enable it, go into advanced settings and change 2.0 to 5.1 or 7.1, depending on the number of air-moving devices in your room.
I tried samplings from two multichannel FLAC albums, they both worked fine.
As a long time owner, I use primarily the Vero 4K+ as a Plex client to stream 4k UHD TV shows and films. It can bitstream Dolby Atmos and DTS’s lossless spacial audio format. It cannot currently passthrough Dolby Vision, which is fine because my 4K projector (JVC) cannot handle Dolby Vision anyway. It runs Linux kernel osmc 4.9.113-45-osmc currently after the Kodi 19 upgrade, I am running it dual stack ipv4/ipv6 . The multichannel PCM (FLAC) rips are working fine through RoonBridge and it is currently on sale (quick shipping from UK to US, at least for me when I bought my last one).
