We have a client with a Vivaldi system (sans transport) that is reporting problems maintaining contact with MinimServer running on a Synology NAS array. He has recently changed his LAN equipment to an Eero system, but he says this particular problem predates the network equipment change. Here are his comments:
The Mosaic app has always maintained communication with the upsampler and Qobuz (and previously TIDAL) streaming has remained unaffected, except when system wide network problems have arisen. Selecting UPnP in Mosaic (on the other hand) yields “No UPnP servers available”. Today this happened even while listening to normal playback of files located on the Synology NAS, rendered via UPnP/ MinimServer. To reiterate, files were rendered via UPnP/MinimServer while the Mosaic reported “No UPnP servers available”.
And, from the technician who installed the Eero system:
As far as the dCS is concerned, it is odd that the connection drops. This could be a result of multicast advertisements failing to update on the dCS side of things. Unfortunately, Eero does not have any settings to adjust or disable multicast broadcasting. If you are unable to resolve this with the dCS, we can try putting an inexpensive router in front of the Eero to disable multicast broadcasting.
Apparently, this has happened with both the long-time MinimServer version, 0.8.5.3, and the newly released 2.0
Thanks in advance, Andrew!
