Error Starting device playback - Another User

All of a sudden Studio started throwing this error. I searched on the forum and based upon that, I disabled upsampling Also disabled Sys Optimizer, no mas.
This started happening after I added Qobuz trial acct. Later I removed that Quobuz, still issue persists.
Error happens even on Radio(Streaming)

Try toggling this setting if you’re using UPNP Ethernet

Thank You OffRode!
Turning the option On fixed the problem. When I turned it off, the error returned.

What does this mean? Audirvana and my Amp were all working fine, till I tried Quobuz.

Seems like many UPNP devices have a wonky implementation, this seems to allow them to perform properly.

Got it.
But it does not explain why it was working for so long and right after Qobuz this became an issue.
Was it because this setting Audirvana turned it off when I played Qobuz files , or Qobuz somehow screwed up my amps UPnP?

I did see that you mentioned that but I have no idea why it could of changed things around in your settings, just know that it is an issue that I’ve had to deal with as well when playing to Ethernet devices vs usb DAC
