Describe the issue

There is a particular track on Tidal - "We Bring You the Stars" by Metalite - that consistently cuts off at 2:40 into the song due to some software bug. I can see a related error in the logs (will attach below). The song plays fine on my phone using the native Tidal app.

Describe your network setup

Irrelevant, but: ISP router (IPv4 DMZd), ER605 (router for IPv4, passthrough for IPv6), NUC with core hardwired onto that, remotes on Wifi.

Its the track itself. It reports 3 but stops as you sat at 2.42.
Need roon to have a look.

Yeah and playing it via Tidal on my Android confirms it is indeed 3:00 long. I mean there may be some encoding discrepancy or something but if the app can play the stream, so should Roon.

Hi @Marcell_Toth,

Thank you for the report. QA is investigating the downloader’s handling of this Tidal-provided file and will follow up with more information.
