Spotify connect not working on VSX-924 anymore

Since a recent update the Spotify connect functionality stopped working on my Pioneer VSX-924 receiver. I've tried resetting the receiver and network, but I can't get it to work anymore.

 

Any ideas?

Perfect!

 

Glad to know everything is back to normal for both of you @Bandar and @jarnotjow. Also, thanks for letting us know what you did.

 

If you need help again in the future, just give us a shout 🙂

Some additional info, using Airplay streaming works, just not Spotify Connect. It just tries to connect, then hangs.

Hey there @jarnotjow!

 

That doesn't sound right!

 

I suggest you try a clean reinstall and see if this helps, This usually fixes most problems 🙂

 

Note: This will remove any saved offline tracks and cache 🙂 

 

I hope this helped! 🙂

Same issue by an ipad air(older and new app version), and by an android tablett. My premium account is just no longer working for spotify connect since a few days. I am using a Pionneer sc 2023. rb

@MonicaM_Bogota! Thank you. I have no 2nd needed premium account, to try Spotify connect from an ipad to my receiver as device. This account works evn from ipad in a physical connection or by airplay. Also I had checked the steps before, my firmware -and updated my app. Is there a phone number which you know, to ask for any known issues since some days? Kind regards, Ralf

Hi,

 

Today I was having some additional troubles with my home network and while troubleshooting this, I found an issue where my receiver would suffer from a device stealing its address. After giving the faulty device a fixed IP address, I was able to connect again. 

 

Problem solved!

Hello @Julian, it was another solution for me, while also network related:

Spotify Connect is working again by switching to Google DNS in my Receiver.
DNS1: 8.8.8.8
DNS2: 8.8.4.4
This was a tip from another German forum - on end with picture -

It was also needed to switch off DHCP and use a fix IP for this in my Pioneer.
