Many thanks for your efforts! We really appreciate that!
Just tried the 2.882 image on my old Sparky and it worked like a charm. I did get a rpi 4 as a backup, just in case, but a million thanks for the work, appreciate that. I hate throwing things away, and this has prolonged the useful life of my sparky for a bit!
Installed the 2.882 image and Tidal connect works fine.
