Today I confirmed something that I’ve been suspecting was happening for a while now. When Tidal account is enabled, selecting tracks from my local library and playing them results in a Tidal version being played, rather than my own local files. Album thumbnail does not have Tidal icon when playing.
I confirmed this by doing the following:
Navigate to library
Select Wish you were here album
Library correctly states files are FLAC, 44.1KHz, etc
Hit play button for album
First track commences
Navigate to identify quality of track being played
Room says Tidal, AAC… “Low Quality”
Settings → services → Tidal → Disable
Back to Wish You Were Here → play
Quality of track now playing is Lossless, FLAC, 44.1
This is very strange behaviour and makes Tidal integration somewhat limited unless on Room Radio.
