My Question or Issue
to be honest, I have no clue how to describe my problem properly.
I will try to make it less confusing than it sounds in my head.
Yesterday I learned, that my spotify connect doesn't work properly.
I wanted to connect to our pioneer AV-receiver via mobile which worked like a charm before. But this time my mobile wasn't able to connect - it said "connecting..." and that's all. The Pioneer on the other hand had a music title in line and was able to play it, when I started it via remote.
Then I tried to connect my surface with the pioneer, but same procedure.
This time I saw the green bottomline which is shown when you're connected to another device when I started another song/playlist, and this one blinked like a maniac, until it somewhen was static and told me, that he's playing on my desktop-PC, wich wasn't even turned on.
Funny thing: it didn't show me the song I wanted him to play, but the same song as the one shown on the pioneer. That information didn't vanish at any point. Even the play-button didn't show pause, but still the "start playing"-triangle.
When I click on it, it just starts the same song. When the song is over, the information remains and it plays some other stuff.
I then went to my desktop-PC, turned it on, had a look at my spotify there, same procedure.
The problem only occurs with this specific account.
I attached a screenshot of the bottomline. That is what is shown, when I play another playlist. Wasn't fast enough to catch the green connection-line beneath, though.
What I already tried:
- turning it off and on again. 😉
- telling spotify precisely to play on the used device via connect menu
- relog on any device
- cut all connections via Settings-menu of spotify and logged in again
- delete all allowed devices for offline-content
- connected fresh to the Network
- searched the **bleep** out of the web for another solution
- tried another account (husband) on the pioneer, worked like a charm
I am out of ideas. 😞
Anyone here who's into magic?
