Volume control not working with SPDIF connected

Number of Tracks in Library


Description of Issue

Trying out Roon at the moment. Since connecting the Iris with the Pontus via SPDIF I can’t control the volume via Roon. Rebooted everything, but no luck. Completely removed Roon (including Library files) and reinstalled it, but no luck. In Audirvana it’s working properly. With USB connected directly it was working. Hope someone can help me with this problem. Cheers!

Hi @Jochem_Naafs and welcome to the forum.

USB, that is what “Device volume” is for. Try to choose “DSP volume” instead if available while using SPDIF. See also:

Hi @BlackJack that indeed did the trick. Thanks so much for your help and pointing me to the guide of setting up audio.
