Win 10 PC / Onkyo TX-NR646 receiver
My Question or Issue
When listening to Spotify directly on my laptop, I keep the app volume at 100% and control volume via the OS.
When listening via Spotify Connect on my stereo, the app volume switches to represent the current volume on the receiver.
Recently, I've had a number of near heart attacks when trying to adjust the receiver volume via the Spotify app (using the [Ctrl]-[Up] and [Ctrl]-[Down] keyboard shortcuts).
With music playing at a quiet level on the receiver, I have pressed [Ctrl]-[Down] to reduce it slightly, only to have the receiver volume suddenly set to "99" (max volume).
I believe the exact repro was:
- Start playback on laptop (full volume)
- Switch to receiver in Spotify Connect
- Reduce volume using [Ctrl]-[Down] shortcut
If you don't think this is a serious bug, buy a home theater receiver, set it up with 5 high-powered speakers in an apartment building, and try to repro this bug at 12am. =)
My ears, pocketbook and neighbors thank for your attention.
