I have purchased recently a HW-Q90R soundbar, and after installing it seems impossible to connect with my iphone's spotify connect.
I have installed fw 1008 in soundbar and in subwoofer & rear speakers following the samsung's web intructions. SmartThings app shows 1008 version and the soundbar is properly added and connected to the same wifi network of my iphone. I can play spotify songs with bluetooth, but I cannot use Spotify Connect because the soundbar doesn't appear in the spotify's devices list, even with the soundbar in Wifi input. I have disable the option "Show only local devices", and my account is premium. With my computer and with my previous Yamaha receiver the Spotify Connect works flawlessly.
I have resetted the router, reinstalled spotify, reinstalled smartthings app (and granted all permissions it asks for), remove and re-add the soundbar to smarthings app, select Wifi input, and nothing.
Can you help me to make this soundbar works with spotify connect? Thanks!!
Couldn't agree more, when I read AndrewL's reply it was obvious that we wouldn't get any help from official site.
This soundbar is not compatible with the multi room app, so the suggested solution is useless.
I have fought with this very same issue for weeks now, and will try to solution suggested by a user to reserve an IP address for the soundbar in my router.
