Hi everyone,


I've been using RoonBridge on my Control PC successfully for about a year (WS2012R2, core mode, AO 2.20, Audio PC same setup). I updated both PCs to JPLAY 7 in core mode with first the Femto trial and then the Classic. Whilst activation appeared successful, I eventually restored both PCs to GUI mode for troubleshooting. Having reinstalled both JPLAYs and RoonBridge a number of times, I am still unable to get RoonBridge to run correctly on the Control PC in core mode.


I use AO (ST) to activate core mode. On first boot this produces errors in the Raatserver service due to lack of KS. Installing KS using AO cures these errors and JPLAY reappears as a controllable Roon device. Unfortunately, despite Roon indicating  the track being played and the elapsed time increasing, no sound comes from the system. Prior to these problems I was happily running Ultrastream, 1000hz using KS to my DAC, hibernate off.


Any thoughts, please!?

Hi Ben130p,


Does everyting look alright in the JPLAY Settings panel? Have you stopped the JPLAY Femto service on the Audio-PC (which you can do in a dual PC setup)? Have you tried different DAC links? I assume you activated Roon support in AO on the Control-PC.
