After I connect my yamaha pre amp via Ethernet cable, I don't have interruptions anymore. Strongly recommended.

I have my reciever connected with an ethernet cable... Doesn't matter with spotify now, same thing happens. Play is stopped after aprox 2-3 songs.

Hard wired or not the gremlins will come back. I have WXA50 hard wired connected to an older YSP1100 and outdoor speakers. I also have 5 WX010 and 1 WX030 and Spotify would just drop out after 2 or three songs just like everyone is talking about.

 

Every once in a blue moon it would play an hour or so....

 

So far Deezer hasn't stopped at all... I really think it has to do with the being completely integrated into the Musiccast app.

 

What I did was sign up for Deezer just to try it out while keeping Spotify. After three days with Deezer I canceled Spotify.

 

I like Spotify but Deezer is really nice too. Their "flow" is pretty cool feature.

Same problem here too, hardwired or not it just cuts out randomly.

 

It's been working fine for 18 months and has just started happening in the last week or so.

 

I have pretty much tried everything to remedy this problem as it's completely ruining the listening experience.

I contacted support via facebook messanger. They cleared my cache and I had to reinstall spotify. All offline material was deleted but now it seems to work fine...

I have exactly the same problem, it just cuts after 2-3 songs, then the next songs wont start, after 20 seconds I can play a song again.

Also spotify connect, but with samsung multiroom speakers, so I don't think the problem is related to Yamaha or Samsung speakers, but with the spotify connect api.

  • Glad, I found this thread. 

After resetting all my devices, deleting cached data, uninstalling all related apps and setting it all up again, with everything running smoothly but spotify, I came to the conclusion that something must be wrong with the streaming service handling musiccast....

No matter which device I use for running spotify, connected to musiccast it stops playing after seconds or minutes...

It drove me mad this weekend... 

 

Since I am not alone and Yamaha and Spotify probably care, this will be fixed hopefully sooner than later...

 

Still this sucks... I just started vacation. And I hate it without ambient music in my appartment...

 

My musiccast arrangement comprises of 1 RX A1070, 1 YSP-1600, 2 ISX-80, 2 WX-030 and 1 WX-010.
