Tidal HIFI buffering issues and sudden white noise


I am having major buffering issues to the point that Tidal is unusable with audirvana.

The song pauses from buffering after the 20% of buffering and then its either pause and play and pause or sometimes suddenly white noise starts playing.

Pasted below is the debug info. Thanks.

Hello @essrand,

Can you try to play some music from Tidal on their website?


Sorry for the delayed response. This problem just disappeared on its own after a few days. Not sure what happened.
