This is the same issue I have. Running Rasp pi and IQAudio with Max2play Spotify connect on premium account. Spotty works fine through LMS (havent tried spotify connect through LMS – apparently is an option) but i wanted to switch to using Spotify connect directly on Max2play using the plugin. It works for a few days then the Raspi disappears from devices i can connect to in spotify app. I find that the issue can happen and spotify connect is service stays running but on the last occasion it has stopped. Log talks about panicking and something about rust…

I have the hw card select for audio output in spotify connect settings. Also have command line option: –initial-volume 50.
Also shairport is not set to autostart (squeezelite is).

Tried re-installing Spotify connect plugin but not full Max2play re-install (yet) to no avail. Is there any obvious solution that I am overlooking or should I try re-installing a complete fresh install?

I thought maybe it might be to do with something else taking the access to the audio card but the only thing is squeezelite which is also set up but the issue happens without me playing anything on Squeezelite (maybe having it running is the issue)?
