I am having diffuculty with the Spotify Connect plugin autostart. It works fine with Max2Play on my older Raspberry Pi B+ and 3B+ but not with my newer Pi4. When I access the Max2Play interface and manually start the Spotify Connect service it works fine but I can’t get the Spotify Connect plugin to automatically start when the Pi4 boots up (which it does on the B+ and 3B+). This is a fresh Max2Play install (Pi4 Beta version) downloaded yesterday from the M2P site. I have Spotify Premium and have tried with HiFiBerry DAC+ installed and removed (HDMI output), and I have disabled all other players (Squeezelite, Shareport, DLNA etc). To be clear, the Spotify Connect plugin works fine when I manually start it on the Max2Play but it won’t start automatically. (this is an updated post as originally it was not working on the P3B+ either but turns out I had entered the Spotify account password wrong)

Here is the debug log:
