    Alarm Clock and Tidal

    I've been waking up to a Spotify playlist using the alarm clock plugin played through a duet receiver for years with no problems,

    I'm now jumping ship to Tidal but I can't get the alarm to work with a Tidal, am I doing something wrong or is this simply not possible?

    Hard to tell when you don't tell us what you're doing... How do you set
    up the alarm? What is the outcome?

    Hi Michael
    I do exactly what I've always done successfully with Spotify playlists ie add a tidal playlist to favorites, select that playlist as alarm sound but this fails to play and the alarm switches to backup sound loop after a coupe of minutes. If I play the same playlist selected directly in favites it plays fine???

    Are you saying this is what the favorite is set to? And you can play it
    from the favorites this way? I would be surprised if that worked.

    Michael, yes it works fine if I select it from favorites, what format should the address look like? I'll give it a go,

    Well that's what got me puzzled: imho playing a playlist from a URL as
    stored in favorites is only available for Spotify and Deezer, but not TIDAL.

    I tried to use the URL you gave me as a favorite. Alas, it didn't work
    for me. Would you mind sharing your favorites.opml file with me?
