Built out a new machine, and after a lot of headache, I’ve determined that Roon will only play when it can get exclusive mode on an audio device. This is fine for my Headphone amp, but not acceptable for my main speakers, where my main use case [on this device] is for background music while doing other things, which will also need access to the speakers.
My previous build was able to play with these devices fine in non-exclusive mode.
Other media players work fine.
Windows 10 Pro 21H2 build 19044.2251
i7 12th Gen, 64G Ram
FiiO K5 Pro
Windows Controller Information: “FiiO K5 Pro; Microsoft”
Windows Controller Information: “TC-384Khz Hifi Type-C Audio; Microsoft”
Right, so when I have exclusive mode disabled in both Roon and Win10 properties, songs I attempt to play just instant skip to the end. This has worked in previous Win10 setups I’ve had. I don’t believe I’ve done anything strange here, and they are all USB devices, so drivers shouldn’t be at issue.
