In Reply to: RE: What version.... posted by Ivan303 on May 16, 2017 at 07:29:27
I was using the same as yours and checked to see if updates were available - it automatically downloaded the latest. OOps.
OTOH, Don't find a problem using desktop player in office, but then it just uses server's sound card. I primarily stream using Tidal plug in to LMS.
"About Tidal" reports,126.96.36.199 for me
I went to "Check for Updates" and it reported that I am up to date.
But I'm on Mac so the Tidal player release versions might be slightly different for different OS's.
No issues here... it all works.
I am also on version 188.8.131.52. Using a Macbook Pro with OS X El Capitan ver 10.11.6.
Still cant use "Use Exclusive Mode" in Tidal on the PS AudioUSB 2.0 Audio Out setting. I tried changing all sorts of settings on my DAC, but nothing made a difference. All I get is an EXTREMELY loud hash noise. With "Use Exclusive Mode" not checked, it works fine. Hmmm.....maybe my DAC has some issue with the new software?
The problem you described didn't rear it's ugly head until I went into Tidal > Settings > Streaming > Sound Output > Wyred4Sound USB Audio Out.
I've been using the Wyred4Sound uLink USB to SPDIF converter all along and Exclusive mode was set and working fine even after seeing that I am on the latest release of the Tidal player.
Not until I started poking around within the Settings screens did the loud static occur. Only after disabling Exclusive Mode did the static go away. Hmm.
Oh well, at least it is some Tidal bug and not my DAC. I hope your volume was not too high when that noise occured? Hopefully Tidal will address this, until then I just am not using exclusive access.
I deliberately turned the Volume way down before experimenting. Thanks for the warning.
We just proved that it's not your DAC as I am having the same issue with Tidal on a different DAC setup.
Although it's not a show stopper for me I hope they fix the problem.
that's what I'm running, too.
So far, no problems...
Enjoying Hifi for sure. :)
as I feared that would happen.
Mostly stream TIDAL using LMS except on the main system where I go directly for the Mac Mini to a USB DAC.
Have yet to compare a ripped CD with same album as a MQA Master decoded in the TIDAL player and sent to the same DAC.
Will be interesting but don't currently have a CD that TIDAL has up as a MQA Master. If I have to BUY a CD it has to be something I want to own.
