Hi, I am well impressed with PiMusixbox running on a Pi3 with a hifiberry amp+ attached. I had it up and running in less than an hour.
My only problem was the lack of a proper text editor in 0.7rc5 - if someone could add gvim to the build repository that would be wonderful.
I know lots more about *nix than I know about Spotify, I only recently payed me money for a family accountm so that’s where I start to have problems.
I found my playlist loaded and music played with just my username and password in the settings.ini
I found that my personal Spotify playlists import OK - ie a playlist that I created on my phone, and added songs to it.
I found that if I then add another hand crafted playlist, the only way to get it to appear is to deleted /var/lib/mopidy/local-sqlite and reboot after that I see the new playlist ( restarting mopidy does not seem to do anything). I have scan_always=true and that does not seem to do anything either ( I think that is just for scanning local files).
I found that if I follow a SPOTIFY playlist eg 70’s rock or similar then it appeas in my Spotify playlists (on my plnone), but when I force a reload ( by moving local_sqlite and rebooting) no playlists load - a message appears saying in the playlist browser saying " loading spotifiy:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" which remains forever. (sorry did not save the exact message).
So my question -
is this expected behaviour?
