Description of Issue

Many songs from Tidal drop midway. I have no problems if I use BlueOS instead. Going to have to cancel if not resolved. Please advise.

Hi @John_Fidel,

In order for Roon’s @support team to offer you the best advice can you edit your post and complete the missing sections.

Could you also describe what troubleshooting steps you have taken, such rebooting the Roon Core device and network router.

(If you’ve not done so these would be the first steps I would recommend).

At the expense of sounding like a broken record, this sounds very much like a network issue…

The OP states that streaming from Tidal through BluOS works but not through Roon. Does not appear to be network though the OP is scant on details regarding WiFi, ethernet etc.

It does. Streaming fine through BluOS with Tidal or Qobuz, but stuttering or stopping with Roon RAAT is indicative of a network issue. Roon RAAT works differently - it has much higher peak demand (albeit for shorter periods) than streaming directly via other methods.

Without any info about network setup, however, it’s impossible to help.
