Was it established that one cannot a Qobuz album to favorites from within TAS? If that isn’t true can someone explain how it is done.

Select at album and add it to your queue.
I have chosen Beatles Abbey Road in this example.
Click the 3 vertical dots at the right of the track to open the drop down menu.
Select "More"
A drop down list will appear on the left pane in TAS.
Select "On Qobuz" at the bottom of the list.
A new drop down list will appear.
Select "Manage Favourites" at the top of the list.
A new drop down list will appear.
Select the middle one.

Thanks for this.

That worked and added the album to my Qobuz favorites in TAS but it doesn't seem to add it to Qobuz's database. When I go into Roon that album doesn't appear. Is that your experience as well (assuming you have Roon)?

What I have been doing is going into Roon and adding it there and then rescanning my TAS library. Doing that results in the album appearing everywhere.

Can you tell me exactly what to do to "rescan the TAS library" so all my Qobuz favorites appear there automatically from Roon. ?

I haven't used Roon since TAS but this method adds the album to Qobuz in the app which I use for search sometimes both on my laptop and iPhone.

It eventually showed up both in Roon and Qobuz.

Thanks for the tip.

I have it connected. It works well, playing music using our USB card right now. I will leave it running over the weekend and have a serious listen next week.

I have had the upgraded Reclocker playing for several hours now.
The system is D1-12 > Stern > Heisenberg > Magico A5

I can't give a before and after upgrade comparison as I have not the D1-12 for a long time. However in terms of absolute sound quality my comments are
- superb tonal beauty
- abundance of fine detail and nuance
- tracks sound like a live performance and not a recording

Definitely a top drawer DAC, now blooming even more with TAS, Taiko 5.0 Driver and Taiko USB card

My feeling is that in this low noise playing field, the audible and perceivable Sonic Delta between DAC’s has increased

just wanted to follow up on my earlier question about playlist length. i have a tidal playlist that is 1100 tracks long roughly and i keep adding to it. via TAS only 537 items are displaying. i google'd around and there seems to be a squeezebox setting to manually set a max playlist size. i logged into squeezebox but didn't see that in settings. any ideas?

Can you show a screenshot? I don’t see “advanced” under “settings”.

Do you mean “server settings” / “performance” / Maximum playlist length?

I thought playlist length is now predetermined as to how much can be cached for the batch player. I thought it was 20-30 minutes or am I wrong

batch mode limit is 20+ tracks total.
there is no limit i've seen in single track mode for the number of tracks in the playlist

i think thats the play queue. the playlist itself is from tidal

thanks for the link @cat6man. this was the thread i found googling around as well but also can't find that option in my settings. these are the only options i have (account settings is just email and name stuff):

@Skanda.

Is this what you mean?
See bottom of screenshot.
Mine is set to 500.
If I add new tracks, the ones at the start of the queue get deleted automatically.
I have not tried but a setting of 0 should give an unlimited playlist length.

Thanks @heebrog, this is exactly what I'm looking for but i can't find it in the mysqueezebox portal. This is what I'm seeing (note that account settings has no option):

@Skanda , you can find that in your TAS remote, not in the squeezebox portal.
