I am also having the same issue. I uninstalled Tidal app on my android phone and my iPad but it didn’t help.
Tried restarting Volumio, shutting Volumio down and factory reset but nothing helped.
The only thing which ‘fixed’ it for me was to re-flash the SD card for my Rpi4, HOWEVER after playing a track for a few minutes the problem has come back - arggh!
Interestingly, while trying to find a workaround last night I observed a number of weird things going on:
- after giving up on Volumio for the evening I decided to play a track from Tidal using the Tidal app on my Google Chromecast Google TV. It played for a few minutes then stopped, saying that Tidal was already playing on Volumio. Upon starting playing using Google TV, the same thing happened again after a few minutes.
- I tried playing a Tidal track from the volumio.local gui but it would not play. I saw two errors pop up on two different occasions:
“Failed to open “alsa” (alsa): Failed to open ALSA device “volumio”: Device or resource busy”
“Failed to enable output “default detected output” (jack): Failed to connect to JACK server, status=17”
I hope that the devs find a solution to this soon as my trial period for Premium has just ended and I opted originally for the 12months purchase, so I can’t just decide to pay month by month
