    How do i use Tidal on LMS 8

    I want to try out LMS 8 with Tidal.
    For a long time I've been running 7.9.1 with spotty.

    With spotty I can set up my spotify account in the plugin settings.
    I can see a Tidal plugin, but it has no settings. How do I link it with my Tidal account?

    It's managed on mysqueezebox.com.

    Ah thanks for your answer. I thought I read somewhere that in contrast to the < v8 versions, Tidal doesn't need mysqueezebox any more. Or are we talking about needing mysqueezebox for playback as opposed to account registration only? I.e. what has changed in contrast to the old situation?

    B.t.w. thanks for your efforts on LMS. With radio/tunein, spotify, local storage and podcasts I've been using it with 3 raspberrypi+hifiberry players for more than 2 years now. I use iPeng as a controller, though I have discovered yesterday that the material skin works quite well on mobile devices too.

    Ah, nope, that hasn't changed. You'll still need a mysb account set up.

    Works.

    I have connected lms with my mysqueezebox account. I have added Tidal there. Now I can listen to Tidal on my squeeze devices (Raspi's with HifiBerry boards). Great!!

    Image is LMS web i/f (material skin).

    Now the only mystery is how to control Tidal from Ipeng. I am wondering where iPeng gets it's applications from. It features a 'Facebook' application I never installed anywhere, neither on my LMS, nor on mysqueezebox. Other applications, e.g. TuneIn are showing (but they already did before I even connected to mysqueezebox). But Tidal is nowhere to be seen.

    Tidal appears for me under My Apps in iPeng, alongside Spotty etc
