Audirvana restart needed to reach network audio devices

Dear all,

I saw at least 3 times in a week the following behaviour:

  • Usually Audirvana is configured to use an UPnP device on my local network.
  • After several hours of rest, I used the remote to start playing an album.
  • No sound from my system!
  • I noticed that the output device has been reconfigured to the internal loudspeaker.
  • I fully stopped the playing of the track (Clicking on STOP).
  • I started to select the network device as presented in the list: impossible!
  • “Systopt” appears in red, in the right down corner.
  • Tried to select the device using the audirvana app but to no avail.
  • Need to restart Audirvana.

If somebody has an idea, that will be much appreciated.

Best regards

Same story today. Restarting the network switch does not help.
Devices initially appeared in the list under “ethernet”, then after switch to “Wifi” and back to “Ethernet”, all devices are gone…
Restarting Audirvana is the solution. Issue with Catalina or problems with the MAc Mini going into sleep mode?

Hey, Eric. Do you use a Mac? You didnt notice it. You described something, that seems to be normal. If I want change the Macbook-Output from USB to Network-Player, I have to restart the Mac. I suppose, its not an Audirvana-Problem, indeed one by MacOS. I use the older MacOS Mojave.

Hey Dirk. Yes, I’m using a MacMini with Catalina.
I’m a bit surprised with what you say. I did not know that a reboot was needed to switch from USB to a network device.
On my side, I simply need to restart Audirvana to perform a switch. I have to say “I now need to restart” as it was not the case before. And I’m not using USB devices.

Now, I always need to restart Audirvana to switch to a network device. All network devices appear to be available but cannot be selected, only the Mac Mini loudspeakers are usable.

I’m going to try an upgrade to Catalina 10.15.6 to see if this can solve the issue.
