I have successfully used Spotify connect with my SHD Studio for some years now but suddenly, from yesterday, it's not working anymore. When I select unit (minidsp) in the Spotify app it connects and start to play as usual but there is no sound. Furthermore it randomly jumps between songs like crazy. This is not happening on my phone, nor on other streamers so only with SHD. I have tried the usual steps like restarting the SHD, re-install the spotify app on the phone and also on SHD, disconnected & re-connected it from spotify, changed password etc. but without any luck. Has anyone else encountered this issue?

As I asked above, I think it would be informative to know if Spotify work via Volumio?

Yes I appreciate this isn't what you want to use (I wouldn't either) but I was asking to help narrow down the problem. Unfortunately this points to the Spotify Connect plugin which isn't as official as the main Spotify plugin and so may be harder to get resolved. 

If you haven't already I'd suggest you contact miniDSP support about this (via the link at the top of the page).

I'm assuming that the Spotify Connect plugin (distinct from the Spotify plugin) is on the latest version and has the green Active indicator showing on the the Installed Plugins tab?

For me, all functionality is i place, except spotify connect, and yes spotify connect is activated. Note that the SHD is visible and selectable in the spotify app (tried different phones, tablets and pc) but no sound and jumping tracks. This just started without notice and nothing touched. I have now also tried with a factory re-set and back to latest software but the issue remains. Also tried other LAN connections and cables. My doughter, that has an iPhone, had no problem to connect with Airplay that I thought was not even officially supported. I have an Android phone....

Have you contacted miniDSP support about this yet? Do so if not.

The old version of the connect plug-in no longer works since Librespot has finally died. The community has worked very hard to release a new plugin. This one replace both the connect and the regular spotify plug-in. On a 'normal' Volumio installation (eg on a raspberry PI), you can install this new plug-in. Which works great btw. 

Please minidsp devs, update the allowed plug-ins so we can install the new plug-in. 

.... or share the ssh password so we can fix it ourselves.

As I'm waiting for a new/working Spotify connect plugin I though I could use the Volumio plugin... Today I was happy to find a new Spotify Plugin for Volumo2 (3.0.3 updated 22-07-18). However, the settings is just a blank page??
I wounder if this ment for an up-coming system upgrade including Volumio 3?

Strange, but mine did as well up to a week ago and the suddenly broke. The feed-back I got from the Dev-team is to expect the latest Volumio for SHD in a few days. So far only a new version of the Spotify plug-in for Volumio has shown up but that doesn't work either (settings page is blank...). That is delivered by the Volumio Team and I now I guess we have to wait for the new SHD system build to match (my speculations only). My preliminary work-around is to run Spotify on my LG TV into SHD....
