Description of Issue

Roon won’t stop playing when quit from app icon. Only stops when computer turned off. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling app but no change. Any ideas? TIA.

You need to stop playback from within the control app: mobile or desktop.

Roon server tuns independently of the control app and is always running.


As of Roon 2.0.25 shutting down the Roon GUI does not stop Roon (which now runs independently as a server process in background).

To stop the music planning, click on the stop icon before closing the GUI application.

Alternately stop the Roon Server itself, but really it best to leave that running so other remotes / zones can access it.

Check out the software release notes for more information on this change of architecture.

Thank you for the clarification.
