    Volumio recognizes the Pi2AES and I can get in but I can't access Tidal or Qobuz through it.

    Like when i go to "source visibility" under settings it won't let me select any streaming services.

    I had this happen a couple of times, like it wasn't recognizing the Volumio subscription (which enables those services). Rebooting seemed to fix it for me.

    I was able to get this working. Thank you!

    I noticed that playing on tidal works - but I'm not able to cast from the tidal app on my phone. Also, how does tidal work? I didn't enter my credentials on volumio.

    I’m only aware of being able to stream from the app on your phone using airplay. If you want to use UPnP, you have to sign into Tidal using whatever app you stream with (Bubble UPnP for Android, mConnect for iOS).

    The reason you can play Tidal in Volumio is because SBAF is paying for a Tidal account and the credentials were entered prior to sending out the loaner. :)

    Casting from the Tidal app requires Tidal Connect which was launched only recently and not yet available on Pi implementations. Volumio says they started working on it and estimate availability about mid-year.
