I searched the forum but did not see this issue. Playback zones are not working for my installations. I have 2 RPi running the latest version of Volumio (2.729). One is named VOLUMIO-DESKTOP and the other VOLUMIO-MAIN. They both have fixed IP addresses and connect via WiFi. For a period of time this feature worked fine but over the last two updates it has not. This issue is consistent across web browsers & the Volumio iOS app. I have attached a screenshot to illustrate. Basically when I select the Playback zone icon I see both players but the one I want to switch to has a broken image icon and when I select it the player hangs and never connects.

Thanks, Marc

Hi Marc,
there must be an issue with the second device.
Is it on the same network? If you type its IP address in another browser window, can you reach its UI?

Yes they are on the same network and I can access the UI on each player using it's static IP address. I have attached a screenshot from the other player.

I have the same problem, for me too, playback zones / multiroom isn't working.
The web interface shows no multiroom tab.
In my dns logs (pihole) I can see both devices querying for its own name and the other device's name, to me this means both devices correctly advertise them selves.
DIG shows the correct results on both devices.
How can I further debug this?
Raspberry Pi 3B+ + Allo DigiOne => Dynaudio AIR 15 + BASE 12
Raspberry Pi 3A+ + Allo Piano 2.1 => JBL 308 / TPA3251 + N-Frame bass
Raspberry Pi 3A+ + USB DAC => JBL 305

How come it says 'Playback Zones' on your system while mine says 'Multiroom Devices'?

Bump - not sure why this is being ignored. At this point I am looking for an acknowledgement that this is being looked at for a solution.
