Wow, super frustrating! I can see why Mike just up and bought a damn Apple TV 4k :)

I bought a Firestick 4k for my girlfriend's TV downstairs and just installed the Tidal client and also got 2.25.1

I have an Nvidia Shield TV in my surround rig but apparently the necessary client for that isn't available yet.

Hopefully the right client for one or the other will show up soon.

As another user mentioned, it's probably possible to extract the 2.26.1 client from Goona's Firestick 4k and get it to us as a file to sideload but that would be work for everybody......

EDIT: 02-June-2020 9:30am got the 2.26.1 update for my 2017 Shield TV and am getting Tidal Atmos. Woo hoo!

Will check the Firestick 4k for the update later today.
