    Dear Heiner / M2P Community,

    I recently upgraded each of my RPi 3B+ devices to M2P v2.51 and added a further new RPi 3B+ M2P device. Since doing this a frustrating problem has come up when using the Spotty (v3.1.0) plugin from M.Herger. The issue is that when I play an album or playlist (either through web-interface or Orange Squeeze app) in Spotty, it skips to the next track after 2-4s of play, uncommanded. If I actively command to skip track, it skips 2 tracks with 2-4s of play in-between, and sometimes it skips 3 tracks if all 3 of my players are active in the network. Sound is lost intermittently, until the system stabilizes.

    The issue first occurred when I moved to LMS Nightly 7.9 (7.9.2~1574315728_arm.deb)“on top“ of LMS 7.9.1. I have since formatted that SD, re-downloaded M2P 2.49 image, upgraded to 2.51, and re-applied all settings – and moved back to LMS 7.9.1. Still the same problem.

    If I disable each RPi3 except the LMS host, there is no issue. It’s almost like each player is repeating the Spotty command to play track or skip track. I have tried playing around with the LMS Server Spotty Connect „end point“ settings to no avail (i’m not 100% what „should“ be set here, fyi).

    The LMS server.log output doesn’t offer me any clues, so I’m stuck. Please can you assist?

    Hi Bow,

    You can check whether the Connect feature is a part of the issue by removing Connect functionality for all your players in the Spotty settings and trying to recreate the issue.

    I would also recommend you post this issue to the slimdevices thread on Spotty as well, in case it is a general bug (forum link).

    For me this was causing the same issue and what was described solved it https://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?110455-Announce-Spotty-2-8-x-Spotify-Connect-for-your-Squeezebox/page23
