Tidal Album Art


#1

Does anyone know how to get Album/cover art to show when using tidal with Bridge II?


#2
It used to show up from Tidal, but about a month ago Tidal changed something, and broke it. So until Tidal fixes the issue it does not work anymore.

No issue with Qobuz album art and my Directstream/Bridge II here in the Netherlands

I keep reading this topic as “Tribal Album Art,” a potentially fascinating topic and which begs the question of whether the album or the art is tribal.

I’ve updated to JRiver .66 and Beta version of BubbleUPnP, and still no album covers on the DS DAC. I took a look at the SD card and found COVERART.BMP, with a file size of zero.

Annoying.
(a good word to describe JRiver)

Like I said in another Topic, about a month ago Tidal changed something, that broke cover art. This is a Tidal issue.

Somehow they also broke JRiver too, then, because I’m not seeing any covers on the DS after several hours of playing music with JRiver.


#11

Thats funny, Jriver works fine both at work and at home for me, just not Tidal. Are you sure you have an SD card inserted into your DAC.

Dennis


#12

SD card is there and writable - formatted 2GB ExFAT - JRiver wrote the albumart.bmp file.


#13

ExFAT does not work correctly, use FAT16 or FAT32.

Just so everyone knows the next version of DS/BridgeII (Torreys) supports Roon, and Tidal played through Roon shows Cover Art.

Dennis


#15

I’m ready for it.

I reformatted the SD card to FAT-16 - still no covers.


#16

You should get Cover art from Jriver, that has been working for years. It sounds like you have some kind of other issue.

Dennis


#17

Now seeing cover art in JRiver, after replacing an apparently-defective Bridge II.

PS Audio customer service was excellent, and the new card started right up and connected to JRiver and Bubble (for Tidal).


#18

Hi Dennis…Nice to know that TIDAL artwork works with Roon. Is there anything PS Audio can do to get TIDAL artwork working again with my current setup (streaming directly via Bubble UPnP)?


#19

I can try to figure what Tidal changed and see if we can fix it on our end, but I am not sure if that is even possible

Maybe the folks at Roon know what changed and how to deal with it…assuming you could use them as a resource…
