Just started using this today and it seems a bit hit and miss. I love the simplicity of Android Auto but it doesnt support Tidal and I prefer Lossless audio. So I started playing music (Tidal, Deezer Hifi and added DI.fm, just to test it, the overlay appears for 1 track then vanishes. There was a purple bar flashing at the top and the left hand dock said swipe down but neither return me to the music player. I had to swipe down and click the track details to get back to it, which is what I'd have to do if it wasnt installed. Stock Galaxy S8+ on Android 7.0. is there a correct procedure for this I'm missing?

Music Manager for Play Music, anyone had issues with it authorising?

Trying to install it on a cloud PC so I can DL my library faster but can't get it to auth, 2 factor auth box pops up on my phone, click yes, Nada. Try a SMS unlock, enter correct code, get an error saying we've been unable to confirm your idenitiy?!?

Hi, I'm stumped regarding G-Suite and the Play Store. I've got an imported Samsung Chromebook Plus, my 5th Chromebook so I'm not a total noob :) I was on Beta channel but have moved it to Stable - I can use the Play Store fine with my personal account but when I try and access the Play Store from my work account, the option is greyed out. Yes, I can add an account and use that but want to use completely different extensions and apps and keep them separate if possible.

I've spoken to 2 G-Suite admins and they say that the Play Store is "On for Everyone" and also that "Android applications on Chrome Devices (BETA)" is also enabled but I still can't get onto it - He's manually approved Zoiper, Bria, Slack, Trello and Sonos but all I see is below.

Any ideas please?

Via Ferrata.
42km of Hiking in spectacular scenery.
A fiesta that went on all night.
And more gourmet food than you can shake a stick at.

I have just "Powerlined" the house for our main devices as we had way too many things fighting over the Wifi (26 at a time on average - Sonos, Smart Home devices etc) - maybe not the most elegant solution but it's too late now :)

So I ended up with a mix of older 2nd hand 500Mbps Devolo gear, which is fine for the most part but I also snagged a couple of new TP-Link 1200 Triple port Gigabit Powerline adapters which I'm going to use for the higher bandwidth devices - Nvidia Shield / Gaming PC and a QNap NAS Box (which is connected directly to the router).

Question is, at the router end - is there any benefit / detriment to plugging 3 x network cables from the router to the triple adapter at the same time?

Hi, I'm sure this has been asked before but in all honesty I'm a tad drunk and couldn't see it when I did a quick search. I want to play videos on my Nvidia Shield TV but send the Audio to my Chromecast Audio group. Possible or not?
