    Re: Lumin supports Tidal Connect

    For those who heard a difference between Tidal Connect and Tidal via Lumin app, please kill / force stop the Tidal app after starting playback. See if the SQ improves, and let me know.

    Killing the Tidal app will not affect your Tidal Connect play queue because it’s in the cloud.

    Re: Lumin supports Tidal Connect

    Thank you for the update!
    In my case, there is no discernible audio difference.
    There are 2 radio stations that does not play. Lumen displays all station info except for the last line, stream info.
    WUOT-HD2. http://tun.in/seAEU
    ETV, http://tun.in/seqUk

    BBC World Service now plays just fine; used to cause some strange behavior both in the app and Lumen.
    Overall, 14.0 is a welcome upgrade...

    Re: Lumin supports Tidal Connect

    Tidal does not have their Connect services quite right yet.
    Queue should exist on their server, not each Connected device.
    So Lumen app has its own as does Tidal app. They are not aware of each other.
    This is a major shortcoming.

    Tidal needs to study Spotify Connect; even their public web API has one call to add-to-queue.
    Disappointed.

    Re: Lumin supports Tidal Connect

    Tidal Connect queue in Tidal app is indeed on the cloud server.

    Lumin app Tidal playlist is an OpenHome playlist, it is not Tidal Connect. Lumin app playlist and Tidal app queue are indeed distinct from each other.

    It's strange, but I've got the same impressions. From Lumin app, or even from Linn Kazoo sound is better (resolution, 3D, soundstage) than from Tidal connect.

    Re: Lumin supports Tidal Connect



    The latest LUMIN firmware brings TIDAL Connect to X1 / T2 / U1 / U1 MINI. TIDAL Connect is a new way to play TIDAL on LUMIN using the TIDAL App.
    Simply choose LUMIN as your playback device from within the app.
    Other v14 enhancements
    Updated MQA decoding
    Front panel display now shows Qobuz/Spotify/TIDAL text when streaming from those sources
    Other minor enhancements and fixes


    Firmware v14 is available to download now from our servers. Most users will receive a prompt when they next start the LUMIN App.
    For manual update, or for instructions about how to enable automatic updates, see this page from our Online Manual

    Please kill the Tidal app on iPad. Turn off the iPad WiFi. Turn it back on. Then relaunch Tidal app. If that does not work, please reboot the iPad. If that still does not work, please reboot the whole network starting from the WiFi router.

    Re: Lumin supports Tidal Connect

    Hi

    Updating my T2 was successful.
    My IPad Pro, Lumin, TIDAL App is all Updated.

    But I cant See Lumin T2 on TIDAL Devices.
    Only in the AirPlay Area I can See the T2.

    Rebooting Wlan on iPad and Pushing the TIDAL App does not help.

    Any Ideas ?

    Hi Peter

    My A1 updates automatically when I turn it on, everything works fine.

    Front panel display now shows Spotify/TIDAL text when streaming from those sources.

    Many thanks to all Lumin Team

    Hope to be able to use Tidal Connect in future updates if possible.

    Shutting T2 down
    Push Lumin App and TIDAL App away
    Shutting IPad down

    Turn Lumin On
    Turn IPad on
    Open TIDAL App

    That‘s it ;-)

    Re: Lumin supports Tidal Connect

    Please power down the whole network, starting from the WiFi router, and include the iPad and Lumin, Roon Core, etc. Then power them up.

    If you can access the router setting, multicast routing and IGMP Proxy needs to be on.

    Important:

    In iOS system setting for TIDAL, you need to Allow TIDAL to Access "Local Network" and "Background App Refresh".

    Re: Lumin supports Tidal Connect

    The settings I mentioned are on iPad system setting (for Tidal), not within Tidal app. If you are using Mac OS, the settings would be elsewhere and I don't know.

    You need to find the speaker icon in Tidal app and tap it. If you use Tidal Connect, you use Tidal app, don't use Lumin app.

    It's not caused by the upgrade of Lumin firmware.

    It's caused by Tidal switching over to OAuth login scheme, breaking the Lumin-Linn OpenHome Tidal interoperability as I mentioned last year:
    Lumin app - Tidal OAuth login method - OpenHome

    You can no longer use Linn app to login Tidal from Lumin hardware, or use Lumin app to login Tidal from Linn hardware.

    “Access local network” was the key to solve the quest …

    It's caused by Tidal switching over to OAuth login scheme, breaking the Lumin-Linn OpenHome Tidal interoperability as I mentioned last year:
    Lumin app - Tidal OAuth login method - OpenHome

    You can no longer use Linn app to login Tidal from Lumin hardware, or use Lumin app to login Tidal from Linn hardware.
    THnX for info. So for now Tidal connect is major solution, but I'll be patiently waiting for Tidal desktop app for Windows ;-)

    Strange thing - on Tidal connect autoplay function doesn't work (on U1 Mini). After the last track on the list player finished his work.

    Re: Lumin supports Tidal Connect

    Finally got Tidal connect to work. However, played about 8or 9 tracks from a playlist then it stopped. Not sure why as there were many more tracks in the playlist.

    I've never tested it, but I think Tidal already has desktop apps for both Windows and Mac, and Tidal Connect should also work from desktops.

    Lumin Android apk also works on Windows via MEmu emulator. This is now regularly tested and performance wise it's even better than on Android phones due to sheer desktop CPU and GPU horsepower.

    Right, that does not work.
    In a competitor forum someone mentioned it's a limitation of Tidal Connect and is not supposed to work.
    I'm trying to get a confirmation from Tidal.

    Was repeat on? Was shuffle on? Was the Tidal app opened, or closed / in background at the time it stops? In any case, please bring up the Tidal app, then choose the Lumin, and try playing the next track. See if that works.

    Repeat and shuffle not on. Last track that was played was a Phil Collins track. Tried to advance to next track but Tidal began to play Phil Collins radio.

    Killing the Tidal app will not affect your Tidal Connect play queue because it’s in the cloud.
    Hi Peter, I am currently on the latest firmware using X1.

    I still able to hear difference between tidal connect and vis lumin app, which favours the lumin app in my system.

    Wondering how are other feedbacks

    I got Tidal confirmation that this is currently a known limitation with Tidal Connect.

    Is there a plan for Tidal Connect to work with Lumin D2?

    The platform limitation needs to be investigated.
