Roon Integration - Who else is excited?

Hi All,

Is anyone else planning on using their remote to control both an AV system and a HiFi?

I cant wait to see things like album art on the remote and be able to control gear from various brands with a single remote control.

Oh hell yeah! I did have background anxiety about what I would do if/when my Logitech Harmony broke but as a die-hard Roon user the think that pushed me to sign up to the Kickstarter campaign was the mention of a Roon integration.

Yes, I am planning to use my remote for both my Roon setup with endpoints in multiple rooms and also for my TV + Soundbar for watching TV in my living room (maybe calling that an AV system is a bit of a stretch because that’s not top of the range stuff).

In the old forum I saw some very ambitious plans for the Roon integration including the ability to search and select new music to play. While more is better and that would be nice I’d be really happy with even a basic now-playing screen plus transport controls. (Some of my end points are Airplay so hitting the native pause button on those, which I can do via my Harmony remote obviously, causes Roon to say “lost control of Endpoint” so to resume playback I can’t use the native transport play button but instead need to go to a Roon remote app and press play from there.)

The next step up for me would be able to see the current queue on the remote so that I know how much I have left in the queue and what is coming up next, including when I am letting Roon Radio choose for me. I would really like that too but beyond that anything else is totally bonus functionality for me that I don’t 100% need.

I too backed the original remote with roon hopes and dreams and decided to back again as this time the creators (now unfolded circle) advertised roon integration instead of a 3rd party creating integration.

I have high hopes for this remote.
