Some background: So far DSD is basically p/n/p compared to DS Jr.
I have a 32GB SD card in the slot of my Direct Stream DAC and the DAC is connected to and “certified” by my Roon core.
Initially album art from Tidal albums (not just picking from a song list, which shouldn’t matter, but I’m trying to narrow this down AMAP) appeared “right away” - like within 4-5 seconds. After a few hours, it started taking 9-10 seconds, then 20-30 seconds, and now some songs and even whole albums will make it all the way through without the album art ever appearing. All albums indeed have art available at least based on my PC and tablet screens. The current example is Van Halen “Van Halen” (Tidal Masters) which is on Song #6 and no art has yet loaded.
Is there anything I should know about the type of SD card necessary, how much space there should be, a menu of some kind or how to check that the DSD is doing what it’s supposed to be doing with regard to setting up a directory on the SD card and storing or doing whatever it does with album art?
Any help greatly appreciated.
