I recently decided to buy a Dell 8" Windows Tablet with screen resolution 1280x800.

Decided to trial Roon on it but (apart from my trial subscription running out), Roon wont run as screen is too small.

1280x800 is not particularly small resolution wise, so is it working on physical size? Real estate wise. This tablet is probably as functional as an iPad mini which many liked to run the Sooloos app on.

I tried Roon on a 7" Google nexus tablet. It installed and ran okay, but was just way too small to be of any practical use, so it seems unlikely to be tied to the physical screen size?

Cheers

George

Hi Ian,

Have a read of I have a Retina MBP, so why does Roon insist on being full screen? topic over on the Roon site esp. the comments made by Danny re screen resolution and task bars.

Hope it helps, if not try posting on the Roon forum for direct help from the team.

Regards,
Carl
