I agree! Tidal’s implementation on the SHD via Volumio is AWFUL! I just bought the SHD Studio and I am already thinking about sending it back.

The reason to buy an SHD/SHD Studio is not its streaming capability but everything else. If you don't want the DSP elements then there are better products.

I'm on verge of paying for a 12 month Qobuz membership. If I thought Tidal Connect my become available in the relatively short term this may make me reconsider this so it would be good if @devteam could give any insight. I realise they're unlikely to though sadly.

Use Bubbleupnp on Android to stream Tidal to SHD. Works great!

I have tried this but I prefer to use my laptop rather than phone for browsing, which is when the fuller featured version of Tidal or Qobuz would be of benefit over Volumio. For just playing something I already know I want I find Volumio on my phone is OK.

I’m disappointed in the lack of communication from them altogether. I emailed miniDSP ten days ago to tell them about this thread and provide them a link, hoping that would prompt them. I said we’re just looking for any sign of life on Tidal Connect and it would be appreciated if they said something publicly. They didn’t reply to my email nor have they replied to this thread.

Unless I have got this wrong then I believe Volumio isn't developed by MiniDSP. Volumio has its own team and forum with plenty of SHD owners pushing for Tidal Connect. The Volumio team says:

"We are waiting for an answer from TIDAL for our request to integrate TIDAL Connect :wink:"

True, they don’t make Volumio, but they are partners and no doubt to get the plugin available on our SHD units they will have to be involved. MiniDSP doesn’t make Roon or Dirac either, but have commented plenty on updates and fixes to those.

The larger problem is that @devteam has only posted four times in the past month, and all four were about the UMIK-2. They are completely missing from several ongoing conversation where their input could be very useful (even just to tell people to be patient).

Yep, that’s brand new info. A little longer than expected but great to hear.

Bear in mind that this is a time estimate of the feature being added to a version of Volumio, but not necessarily the one installed on the SHD family of devices which is sadly lagging someway behind currently.

Hello,

With regard to playing Tidal via Volumio, I can play albums via 'favorites' through my main system but there is no option to play 'artist radio' when I go to a given artist. I also have a Sonos system in other parts of my home and I can access all the Tidal features through the Sonos app, including being able to play 'artist radio'.

So, I'm wondering if I have set something up wrong in the Volumio/Tidal plugin or if it is just not possible to access 'artist radio' via Volumio at this point?

I've not seen an 'artist radio' option in Volumio, and there is no option I can see to enable it.

(I prefer to listen to albums as intended though so it's not a feature I'd use myself.)
