Roon
Hello,

Has anyone that has played around with Roon got any idea what are the best settings are for use with a Sneaky DS?

And................ Has anyone had issues with Roon randomly stopping playing? I use Roon to stream Tidal, but it is really frustrating that it stops playing. It isn't a constant issue, maybe half a dozen times a day, but none the less very irritating.

Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Steve

RE: Roon
I dont have a Sneaky - Majik DSM here - but i get random drops too - have not found solution - seems to take a lot of CPU processing power to run - i have a 2018 Lenovo Yoga laptop and it doesnt seem fast enough - unless its the large library in my HS 210 QNAP NAS

Do you have the Roon Core on your NAS? I do, and I was thinking if it maybe because there were standard HD's in the NAS and not SSD's. But, Roon doesn't stop playing if I pplay tracks from the NAS, only when I stream Tidal. Another interesting thing is I don't get the music stopping if I use Kazoo.

I have the Roon core also on my NAS (QNAP 671 = quad core i5, standard HDs = WD red), it is a huge collection of music, and I have a download bandwidth of 200 MBit, never had drop outs with Tidal since running Roon (for appr. 12 months)

RE: Roon
No the room core is on the Lenovo laptop

Qnap hs 210 does not have the chip needed to run Roon core

RE: Roon
I have trialled Roon with my HS-251+ and local library. It worked OK most of the time, the only issue I had was that Radio/Shuffle kept stopping between tracks. Albums were fine. Didn't try Tidal though - but it could be that that takes more processing, like Radio, and the 251+ is under spec.

I think this may be the way to go.
