    Spotty/Spotify Drops outs

    I have the latest LMS 8?

    Well both my SB Classic and Transporter are having the same issues with Spotify continually dropping out. No buffering notice.
    Not sure what's going on they used to play with out issues.
    Rebooted everything, changed computers, reloaded LMS. Music from my MDD playing fine.


    I haven't got much hair left to pull out, Help!!

    Did you check your server.log or the Spotty settings? Are there hints
    about "status 429"? If so, follow the instructions on the Spotty
    settings page about how to get your own Client ID from Spotify.

    In LMS just go to Settings/Advanced/Spotty. The place where you
    configured your Spotify account etc.

    Still Suffering here!

    My whole playlist played without fault a few days ago( I had been away for a couple of weeks) without me changing anything.
    Tried again today and and got dropouts so I added Client ID but still no joy

    More suggestions needed, I'm losing it

    BTW I'm using Ipeng if it makes any difference?

    The Client ID can take a while before it takes effect due to cacheing.
