    Just hit that symbol to the upper right with 3 lines and the bottom line is an arrow and that will play all the albums of that artist.

    Can you please tell what controller you are using?

    Can you guys spend like 10 minutes to confirm one issue with SR15 for me?
    Using Tidal offline, installed via Services, newest APK version. I start playing songs, then come to main menu, turn on Sleep timer to 10 minutes as example and... nothing happens after these 10 min. It simply does not want to turn off on time.
    Can you check this? This is potentially a big flaw for me as I like to fall asleep with music. In this scenario - in the morning I got 0% battery :frowning2:

    I’d love to try R6, just because of the dsp effects you can fool with- and I hate to say it but the green colour has me mesmerized. Although I’d probably get red :wink: I don’t think the hi ohm output would mess with any of my equipment. It’s down to 450.00 at music teck

    I’m trying it now, how did you install/update tidal over services?
  6. nicodem
    downloaded newest APK from APKMIRROR (version 2.11.3) and copied to OpenServices directory at SR15 (if I remember name of directory properly). Then it showed under services menu, installed, added my credentials and working. Also with offline, files can be kept at SD card. This feature was one why I bought SR15 over AK380 which I can buy used at very, very good price.
    Sleep timer does not work. Now during checking with sleep timer when using built-in app for playback with flac files.

    Oh duh, I thought you were updating over WiFi, sorry a misunderstanding :wink: This is my first time using tidal offline (tidal noob here) sounds great- one question though? Can I access the tidal offline files through my music? Or do I have to use the tidal app?

    Nice feature, because it will save some juice not having WiFi on (tidal offline that is) .

    You must use tidal app for this but having offline at SD card is great. Perfect solution for flights for example.

    Thanks, and no the sleep timer doesn’t seem to be working. Maybe next firmware, hopefully.

    Np :)

    OK, so checked with 10 minutes sleep timer in general settings in main AK app and with using this app for playback. What it does is just pause the playback after 10 minutes but does not turn off device.
    Manual says:
    Screen Timer: Music playback will stop and the device will turn off after the selected amount of time

    And this is not true. Not working like this. Its a bug.
    With tidal not even making a pause.

    I have checked 2 options - 10 minutes in sleep timer AND 10 minutes in Auto-Power off. During this Tidal APK was already playing some music.
    No reaction at all after 10 minutes - still playing Tidal.

    Yes a definite bug I would think, but at least if the music stops and your screen goes dark well the standby is pretty go on the SR15. I guess there’s no timers in the tidal app itself.

    This one: https://amzn.to/2Th1Nkt
    You can see it on the bottom of my profile picture.
    It's not available now but you got the idea. I bought it for £2. It's rechargeable via micro USB.
    The directional pad can do next/previous track and fast forward/rewind into a track. X/A buttons are volume up/down. Start button is play/pause. Y button is back. The select button activates mouse. I bet you didn't know your SR15 has a mouse.
    Alternatively you can buy the Astell&Kern RM01 for $179. It's not rechargeable. https://bit.ly/2MTzZRc
