Hi there,

Thanks in advance

Hello everyone. I found this topic having the same problem. I have the TX-NR414 with wifi adapter and I think I found the solution.

My problem first was that even though the receiver was found by my Spotify app it would not connect. But then the Onkyo receiver will even disappear from the Spotify app.

To solve this I used a laptop to connect to the web configuration interface of the receiver (simply open your browser and go to the IP assigned to your receiver) and changed the name in the network by removing any special character, specifically I removed the hyphen so I went from TX-414 to TX414. Avoid special characters and spaces. Also make sure you are using DHCP.
This made the trick for me.

Edited: to make it more clear to understand.

The solution that

posted worked for me. TX-NR636. Changed the Name to TXNR636 under the IP of the Onkyo Receiver and in the Router Menu (FritzBox). DHCP was on. Bevore that I already did a Reset of the Onkyo and Firmware update. Also reinstalled the app on the ipohne. Which was without sucess. But the renaming solved it!

 

Thanks man!

Again: check that your device has only alfanumeric characters (A-z & 0-9)

Great to know it worked. The most incredible part is that after years Onkyo
has done nothing to solve this.

Somehow I see ANOTHER older post here marked as solution.

Hello.

I did tried changing the name in the network but using receiver's menu only. Do you think that logging with a browser will do the trick? I'm gonna try later and let you know.

Actually it started to work fine here after some time. I logged on my
receiver with browser and after like a day it was working.

You are a GENIUS!

 

My NR-616 had the Friendly Name of "TX-NR616", editing this to "TXNR616"  (i.e. removing the hyphen/minus sign) and clicking SAVE and the Amp instantly appeared in the Devices list on my iOS Spotify app.

I did get a wiondows 10 update and now is the spotify connect not working anymore. I have to reboot to get the connected device. Some problem with windows? An update is destroying spotify connect. Do not know how to fix it. I do not want to reinstall my windows.

Really appreciate the reply.

 

I've got the Onkyo adapter on one of my TX-NR515s, and I have the other one connected to a wired network. They both work with Spotify sometimes, and sometimes they don't. I also have multiple android phones, and sometimes one will work and another won't. It all seems rather random. 

 

I also bought a couple of those Google Chromecast devices and plug them into receivers and TVs. Spotify works with them very reliably. The only problem with them is that my receiver's Zone 2 does not work with HDMI inputs. The workaround to that is to route the audio through the TV, and set the receiver and TV so that the sound goes back from the TV to receiver, then play the TV/CD setting on Zone 2 🙂 . Very Rube Goldberg-ish.

 

The bottom line for me is that if I buy enough gadgets I can always get something to work for me. 

 

Thanks again.

It seems the only way to remedy this issue is to purchase the "Onkyo UWF-1 Wireless LAN Adapter" in order to play your Spotify music which is quite bothering but upon doing some research on this issue as I have tried several times until I purchased it myself. Now it works smoothly without any problems which is quite ridiculous as it's on the same internet network even with an ethernet connection but for some reason when it is connected that way, Spotify cannot detect the device unless it's on the same frequency. I believe that to be an issue with the Onkyo software or the way the receiver was configured. Hope that it something that Onkyo would be able to remedy in the near future as I really enjoy my Onkyo TX-NR525. Hope that helps to clarify some of those issues that everyone has been having. Thanks

My tx nr515 doesn't show up either.... Worked after I upgraded the firmware...the onkyo Android app connects OK....very annoying

Ditto what msellars said. TX-NR515. I swear that it *has* worked, but not in the past week. 

 

My solution was to buy a decent pair of speakers and attach them directly to my computer through the sound card and a dedicated amplifier. But I'd rather be playing through my Onkyo and Polk towers.

 

fwiw, I actually have two TX-NR515s. One is connected to wireless network, one is Ethernet wired directly through the router. On the one wired directly through the router, the receiver's network connection is stable, and all network services work EXCEPT Spotify. One the one with the Onkyo wireless dongle, the network connectivity is "sporadic", but when it does connect, it usually also shows up on the Spotify list.

 

My PC and Android phone are both on the wireless network, and they both play Spotify and I can send the audio from the PC to the phone and vice versa. 

 

I can't think of why wireless vs. wired would make a difference since both are on the same subnet, i.e. IP address range, but perhaps that has something to do with it.

Hi,

 

I have an Onkyo TX-8050. It won't show up in the Spotify Connect, though the device is listed in:

http://www.eu.onkyo.com/en/spotify-and-onkyo-50268.html

I have installed the latest firmware; the device is in the same WiFi network; and the Onkyo is listed in the multi-media devices in the network environment on my PC.

 

From the Onlyo-device itself it is possible to connect to Spotify.

However, if I start Spotify on  my PC and press "connect" , the Onkyo doesn't show up. Other devices (my android phone, an iPad) do show up, but the Onkyo remains invisible.

I have tried several things, like switching the Onkyo on and off; disconnect the wifi and reconnect it; restart the app on my PC. Nothing works until now.

It would be great if you could help me out, here.

I have a TX-1010 and had limited success cold booting the receiver.
I installed Spotify on the PS4 to go that way and now the PS4 comes up on the connection list AND my ONKYO 1010. Now playing direct through the receiver no problems at all
Absolutely no reason this should work but does anyway

Hi,

 

Just bought 535 and trying to connect it to Spotify.

Onkyo does not appear on the list of devices, however it mentioned, that only Premium accounts can use this feature.

 

Playing music through blue tooth now.
