Hello wolde,

please try to log out and log in again to get a new session ID.
Do you use the latest Version V2.0.0-beta19 ?

Look here: https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...pid2885173

Hello Arneson,
I'm still using V2.0.0-beta19

I did follow your suggestion, logged out and logged in again.
Works well now

Thank you very much for assistance.

Enjoy todays Tuesday

Hi there!

This question is a long shot, and I'm not sure if this add-on is still developed.

But do you have any information if the new Tidal Connect function will be implemented in this TIDAL add-on, or any other? 
With this, it could completely replace my Librespot connect setup.

Thanks!

Hello Arneson,

I have a question related to the format of the URL's you are using from Tidal. They appear to be in Apple Lossless MP4 format at 44.1khz, 16bit. This means that if I request an MQA album, I am getting 44.1khz, 16bit (lossless?) instead of the lossy MQA 48khz, 24bit. There are obviously a number of streams available for any given music file.

Do you use this MP4 stream because you feel it's preferable to the lossy MQA stream?

Thanks in advance

Hi geoff,

if a stream is marked as "Master Audio" by TIDAL, the lossless playback stream contains the MQA decoding informations to "unfold" the audio information with a capable DAC decoder.
If the stream is not marked as "Master Audio" the playback stream contains no MQA decoding informations at all.
The TIDAL2 addon requests a "LOSSLESS" playpack stream URL in both cases.
In most cases every MQA track and album is also available as a "Non MQA" version. If you play those streams you will get a 16 bit lossless audio stream.

Thanks. I'm still a little confused though, because I requested to play the MQA track. On all other systems and apps, when I do this I get a 48khz/24bit file, which is in flac format. Strictly speaking this file is lossy, unless the first unfold is performed in software (Roon, Aurdirvana, Tidal Desktop; etc.) or it is sent to a DAC with an MQA decoder, as you said. After the first unfold is performed in software, the second unfold may be performed by an MQA Renderer.

I realise that in most cases the MQA tracks are also available in non-MQA versions; but it was the MQA version I requested for play in Tidal 2
