Tidal Desktop app with Chromecast Audio - not casting


I have a Chomecast audio connected to a Cambridge CXA80 integrated via toslink/mini and it sounds fantastic, streaming Tidal from iPad, Galaxy S7, iMac (OS Sierra) and my work laptop (windows 7).

However, when I use the Tidal Desktop app on the iMac and Dell Laptop, I can not "cast" any audio. The Tidal web browser on each computer has the casting option and finds the Chromecast instantly, but you don’t have access to the new "Masters" section on the web browser, you have to install the desktop app.

I have gone through Google’s Chromecast audio setup, FAQ, Forums with out any luck. I’ve also gone through all of each computer’s setup/preferences. Neither computer can find the Chromecast audio.

The chromecast is running on my home network, as are both computers.

The end goal is to stream Tidal Masters via the desktop app to the Chromecast Audio. If I can get both computer to stream, great! But I’d settle for just one..

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not a Tidal user and don't have any experience with it. However, I did find this:

From Tidal's "Supported Devices Page:

"** Currently TIDAL Masters audio is supported via our desktop application only."

Seems Masters is not available from the browser. You need to install/run the desktop app.

Heres is my work around.

You have to stream in Google Chrome. I have not found a way to stream via the app on my Macbook. 

Once you have Tidal open in Chrome then you can stream.

I too use the Chromecast audio.

I use the iPad app as well and that stream fine.

Doesn't Chromecast transmit directly from the WiFi router?  If so, the Tidal desktop app wouldn't be in the loop.

@robelvick Re: Tidal remote control for a Windows pc - with Masters playback.

A Windows 7 laptop is dedicated to my rig where it permanently lives on the equipment rack. It has the Tidal desktop app. The laptop is hardwired to a streamer via a short USB cable. By my listening chair, I have Windows Surface RT tablet that functions as wireless remote control. It works perfectly. This approach guarantees that the Tidal Masters will play on your system - assuming that you have MQA on your streamer and/or dac. This set-up also supports playing HD quality audio from any website.

A Windows Surface RT tablet can be picked up very inexpensively on Ebay since it was discontinued long ago. Both units have the Windows Remote Desktop app baked into their operating systems. Simply call up the app on each unit and connect them. When first initiating the Remote Desktop app on the dedicated laptop, BE SURE to check that the sound output is not remote controlled. Otherwise, Tidal will play on the Surface speakers. On the Surface RT, create an icon for the app on the desktop. Check SAVE settings. From then on, you don’t need to log-in every time. But, you do need to click on the icon on the Surface to open up the app to start each listening session - if you turn off either unit. This works great for all Windows pc’s. (The Remote Desktop app from the MS store doesn’t work.) Enjoy!
