Hi everyone

My qobuz plugin sometimes reports that an album is unavailable for streaming to my Squeezebox classic when I can stream it to my computer via the qobuz desktop. This has happened for "J.S. Bach: Die Kunst der Fuge, BWV 1080 " Artist -- Davitt Moroney, and for "Ludwig van Beethoven : Variations Diabelli", Artist -- Andreas Staier.

Any ideas how this can be fixed?

I'm using the plugin described here

In which country are you living? We have seen such differences in the
past. Unfortunately the desktop isn't using the same API as is publicly
available. I can look in to this particular case. But I can't promise it
can be resolved...

I investigated the data, and it's probably just the kind of unclear data
we've seen in the past: sometimes an album would be flagged as streamable,
but the tracks are flagged as _not_ streamable. In this case only 4 tracks
out of the full album are flagged playable. Go figure...

I have a similar issue with http://www.qobuz.com/album/andrew-manze-richard-egarr-jaap-ter-linden-js-bach-violin-sonatas/0093046725020, it streams fine via desktop. Qobuz streamable metadata is not very consistent, sometime there are 2 editions of the same work with diff attributes. I will write an email to them about above album, maybe they will fix it, if you want, you can email about yours as well, help them a little.

And the same problems with Cuarteto Casals Schubert, and Jerusalem Quartet's Mozart. No reply from Qobuz customer services.

This may be a reason to dump the Squeezebox, or dump Qobuz. One or the other.
