Use a Tripplite 16' amplified USB cable. My experience shows no downside to this
After I wrote that I figured out a way to get around the security on my work laptop and get Tidal to run on it. That was a much better solution. The funny thing is that I installed Tidal on my daughter's old macbook and it wouldn't work because the clock was off. Instead I just pulled the solid state drive from it and stuck it in a USB case and plugged it in to my laptop and execute it from there. Worked like a charm. I also installed a remote control app on my iPad so I don't have to get up.
It doesn't change the fact that Tidal MQA releases are slow to come.

Why not just correct the time on your daughter's MacBook? If it no longer keeps time have you tried replacing the PRAM battery, which among other things also powers the RTC for timekeeping?
I didn't under your logic of pulling the disk from your daughter's Mac because it's clock was off.
I assume the other laptop is also a Mac?
The old laptop is basically junk. It isn't worth putting money into it. Even with a SSD in it it was noticeably slow. The SSD is of more recent vintage, in fact it is still current. So rather than spend money on an old laptop, I took the drive and put it in a case I already have and can now use as an external drive. This cost $0, and I had everything I needed already, including an install of Tidal desktop.
"Tidal MQA releases are slow to come."
That's because they only have Warner Bros to work with. Soon they will have UMG and Sony so roll out of MQA should be faster
What's the rush?
You keep saying that, but it has been 3 months now. And WB has a lot more titles than Tidal. If they want this to hit some critical mass they'd have to release a lot at once, otherwise it is just a niche group of CSN & ZEP lovers that will sign up.
It just isn't compelling enough the way it is now.
