Hi Spotify team,
I use the spotify app on my LG 47LA6918 TV which is connected to an Onkyo AV-receiver via S/PDIF (opical). I have a few sporadic issues with the app:
1. Usually my AV-receiver's volume is set to 15-20 (min:0, max 100 I think). Sometimes when using spotify on my tv I have to set the volume setting on my av-receiver to 30 or 40 to be able to hear the music. The netflix app does not show this behavior nor the tv's menu sounds does.
2. Sometimes the app crashes the tv on startup and forces me to turn the tv off and on again. When that happens I am not even able to return to the smart menu.
3. The app is incredibly slow. Starting the app takes about 40 seconds. When the menu shows up I can hover the menu items with the cursor (using the magic remote) but after selecting one of the items the app takes often 10 seconds or more to respond.
This could be caused by a slow internet connection but I don't think so because playing music (or watching a movie on netflix in Full HD) works without disruption.
... Hehe I just found another bug but this one does not keep me from using the app. Please take a look at the image I attached to this post.
Please let me know if I can provide you with further information to fix these bugs. I would also be interested in becoming a beta tester if that is possible.
