    Tidal plugin in - not all mood categories are showing

    I'm a happy user of the LMS and especially the Tidal 2.0 plugin. However, when I open the "Moods" sub-menu
    on LMS, I do not see the same full list as when I'm using the native Tidal App. The Tidal app presents me with
    a list of 8 different moods:
    Holiday, At Home, Workout, Party, Relax, Focus, Wellness, Romance
    However, when accessing the moods section via LMS, the list only contains 5 entries:
    Relax, Party, Workout, Love, Focus

    -where "Love" apparently matches "Romance"

    I've been trying to get my head around this strange difference in behavior, so far without luck. I've tried different
    interfaces (Web, OrangeSqueeze) with same result. Tried removing cache as well with no change. My setup is:
    LMS running on a Ubuntu 20.04.
    LMS Version: 8.0.1 - 1606059084 @ Sun Nov 22 16:42:48 CET 2020
    App Version: Tidal 2.0

    Any ideas on why this difference is there, and how it could be fixed?

    Regards, RenÚ

    TIDAL has an API call to get the list of Moods. That's what we're using.
    Looking at listen.tidal.com I see that they're using a different call to
    present the Moods in the web UI. That's their choice, and there's little
    I can do. I'm using the documented method to get the Moods. The five you
    get is what is being returned to us by TIDAL.

    FWIW, I see the exact same 5 Moods in Bluesound plugin for Tidal. They obviously have the same documented API to Tidal as we have here.
    2 Touch, 2 Picoreplayer v6.1.0 on RaspBerry 3B
    LMS 8.2.0 on Debian 10 on Intel-NUC. All wired
    Main audio system: speakers Magnepan 3.6, amp "Gdis 400", DAC & pre: NAD M51, streamers: SB Touch // NAD M50
