A few days ago my Denon n8 had a firmware upgrade and since then I cannot connect with it via Spotify. Please fix!

I tried Network Reset and Factory Reset on RCD-N8 (CEOL).

Nothing worked. It is very frustrating...

So Spotify in the HiFi Apps are removed because Spotify wants you to use Spotify Connect within the Spotify App itself:

So install latest firmware on HiFi, open Spotify (make sure you are in ONLINE MODE), and you can connect directly to Denon when playing the Song.

Ok - got it to work and it's fine.

 

I was using a wired connection and it didn't pick it up. Had to run the Piccolo with a wifi connection and there it was.

 

Good times. Now we just need the inbuilt lyrics back.

But this means it is no longer possible to only use the receiver to listen to Spotify. With this update you HAVE to use a second device (phone, tablet, etc).

Or am I missing something?

I think that's right Netrab.

 

Odd isn't it.
