    I see that the Discovery Server has updated to Roon Essentials v1.5 yesterday. Thank you Elac, but I can’t see much difference between it and v1.3. Could you tell us what features have been added and is there any documentation on it. I would like to know how it compares to v1.5 Roon.

    How do I get Roon essentials v1.5? My Discovery server isn’t prompting any updates and is still on v1.3.

    Apologies, looked again and the core is on v1.5 but the firmware is still v1.3.
