(lazy-copied my post from another forum, thought somebody here might know a solution as well...)

What steps will reproduce the problem?

1. Install latest version of Spotify
2. Use Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
3. Install lateste version of DSBridge
4. Use Squeezebox Duet with latest software installed

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

Expected output (just as it worked on my XP machine) should be that DSBridge streams Spotify to my Squeezebox. When I try to connect to the IP of my new (Win 7) laptop though, Squeezebox throws the error "Error on HTTP socket: Bad file descriptor". It IS streaming though, because if I stream it to my XP laptop there is no problem....

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?

- Spotify 0.8.2.610.g090a06f8
- Squeeze Center 7.7.2
- Windows 7
- DSBridge latest

Not sure about the bridge issue and how this affects things, but in general, spotify requires either a TOUCH or RADIO (and won't work on duet). However, the 3rd Party Triode Spotify plugin will work on other players (duet receiver, transporter, sb3, etc.).

The players just connect to a stream from an desktop PC so the client can be anything not only an SB
