Hey guys!


Sorry to hear that you're having this trouble. Let me investigate this further with you.


To start with, have you tried checked that there isn't any firmware updates recently? If you're on the newest available software, does rebooting the device and WiFi router help?


Also, is this happening with any other apps using the device?


Let me know. I'd love to help 🙂

Its intigrated in the receiver in network funtions

it uses an app Onkyo remote 3 that has intigrated Spotify

after login you can use basic layout spotify search functions

Onkyo advertises with intigrated Spotify on almost every Receiver

 Hi Jason,


I have the latest firmware instaled on my Onkyo TX-8050.

I  haven't found any changes in my in my network environment configuration.

I restared the router and also Onko Amplifier(Clear function - restored default manufacture settings).

All other build-in network streaming applications on Onkyo works fine - AUPEO, DLNA, vTuner.

I have alro reinstalled remote application. All these activities I repeated three times until now but the problem is not resolved.


In my case the problem started about two weeks ago. 

Current situation is that I am able to login into Spotify on Onkyo (I logged out and login again several times on this devices). After login I have on access to search function and therefore to music. Even 'What's new' (on first screenshot) shows empty list. I have logged out from Spotify on all other devices like phone and PC. I am able to use Spotify application on both pc/android witout any issues. But in most cases I use Spotify on Onkyo. Now it is not possible. So I would like to ask you for help. 


Please see the screenshot from remote application for Onkyo. Pleas let me know if you need more informations. Thank you.
