unable to see Yamaha receiver from Windows 10

unable to see Yamaha receiver from Windows 10






PC & Yamaha RVX 473

Operating System

Windows 10


My Question or Issue

My Receiver is designed with airplay and i often stream from my iphone to it.

I recently tried connecting from my Windows 10 PC and Spotify can no longer see it.

I know it used to work many years ago.

Both PC and Receiver are on a fixed Ethernet LAN.

If i connect to the receiver from my Iphone my PC will see the iphone and allow me to control the song on my receiver but it doesn't allow me to see or connect to the receiver directly.


Any advice appreciated.

Hi there @Pommie,


Thanks for reaching out to the Community.


It looks like that device isn't supported for Spotify Connect, therefore it won't appear in the Connect to a device list on the app. Since your receiver is AirPlay enabled, you can continue to connect it to your iPhone and control the playback on your iPhone from the desktop app via Connect.


You can find more info on compatible devices here.


Hope this clears things up. If you need anything else, the Community is here for you.

Hi Carlos, Thanks for your reply.


As i mentioned, Spotify used to work directly from my PC to my amplifier. Now is only works from my iPhone to my amplifier. Are you saying Windows 10 is not supported? 


I was checking to see if Spotify have some configuration / protocol changes that were made over the years that i might need to tweak?


Also the link you gave with the list of compatible devices appears to be a generic landing page


Do you have a page with known compatible devices, none compatible, partial etc?




Hey @Pommie!


We have a list of supported devices on our Explore Spotify site - you can check out the streamer devices that are supported here.


You can also check it out on the Yamaha site - for example this receiver that is mentioned on our site has Spotify in the list of compatible apps.


Your model seems to support AirPlay and that's why you're able to use it directly from your phone, but not with Spotify Connect from the PC.


Hope this info helps. 


Take care!
