Iphone SE 2020
My Question or Issue
spotify connect does connect with Onkyo TX-8130 via wifi, spotify app on iphone looks like it’s indeed playing but THERE IS NO SOUND. Please don’t advice on troubleshooting, since I researched all day. It is NOT the connection, not the volume or mute or the hardware whatsoever (tested it all). It is software-related; either on the side of Spotify or Onkyo. I read about a recent software update/new API that causes problems with older receivers, since Spotify doesn’t support this anymore. I bought my Onkyo in 2018 though and it said Spotify compatible. Can’t be that I have to get rid of a functioning receiver, only because Spotify doesn’t support somewhat older receivers anymore. Not very climate-friendly either (throwing away a product that is functioning ok for the other functions/sources). Spotify has a green policy, I assume?
I pay € 9,99for Premium, but I can’t stream now 😞 What to do? Go to another streaming service? Wait for a software update and pause Premium? I don’t have nor want to buy another receiver. And I don’t want to pay 10€ per month for nothing 😔 Please help!
