Hi, I recently purchased a Roberts iStream 93i and ever since have had intermitent problems with being able to stream music via Spotify.
It seems to work occasionally without issue but then for no apparent reason when I try to do so, the display on both the radio, or on the ConnectR app on my phone shows 'Waiting for users'
I've tried various solutions - factory resets, making sure my Spotify app is up to date, unplugging the radio etc but this still seems to be an issue. The internet radio is working absolutely fine so I'm confident this is not an issue with my internet connection. I can also connect Spotify from my phone to other devices (Ipad or Ipod) without issue.
Any suggestions very welcome because this is very frustrating given that this function was one of the key reasons in choosing the particular radio.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just to follow up my own post above, I discovered an interesting workaround that worked for me! The other suggestions on this thread did not work.
You'll need a PC or Mac - use that to open Spotify Premium, go to 'devices available' and find the radio. It doesn't have to be switched on at this point. Select the radio, which should change to green text to show the link has been made. Play a track and you should hear it on the radio.
Go back to the phone as the track is playing, load the Spotify app and select the radio as a device - this time it should connect. You will also see the PC listed. Try playing a track - it should work, and you should find you can play tracks from the phone from now on.
In my case, for some reason the PC was needed to connect to the radio first and then the phone worked. I'll report back here if it goes wrong again.
