Musicbox seems playing but there is no sound

Hi,

I Use Pi Musicbox on a Raspberry Pi 2B with hifiberry digi+. I play music using spotify.

I have an issue where suddenly the audio stops. In the webinterface it seems like it is normally playing.

I have checked in the log and there seems to be something different compared to when it was working.
This message appears about every second:

2016-09-04 17:03:39,610 - DEBUG Position query failed

Before it looked the same but without the “Position query failed” message.

Just before this happened, the following was in the log:

I hope you can help me solve this issue. In any case thanks for helping!

As with your other query, I used to have problem where the web interface was showing the track playing for 10 seconds - but no sound came out, it was the wifi adapter.
Try running it wired in or try another adapter.

Thanks for your very fast reply, I already use a wired connection so it could not be the wifi adapter.

I used to have a problem where my daughter would log into my spotify account at school and that would log me out at home, could you have similar situation?

I do not think that that could be causing it as I only have spotify on my own devices and I did not open anything. Also it should start working again at the moment I select a new song, which doesn’t happen.
