I have conducted a brief trawl of the forum for connectivity issues between BT routers and music streaming services, specifically Spotify and Tidal. I have seen a number of references and so far I think I can summarise as follows:
There are a number of cases where music streaming services drop out after a track or two.
The stock replies appear to be:
- split SSIDs and turn off Smart Setup
- buy a different router
Many messages of this nature have not been satisfactorily closed with Hub settings adjustments.
I can paraphrase my music streaming rendering device manufacturer's response to the issue as, "ah....BT router..." .
Is there something systemically going on? People need to know BT wi-fi routers may not converse with certain (music streaming) devices (/services). I wasn't aware the device I bought would not communicate satisfactorily with my Smart Hub 2. Conversely, BT didn't make it clear that its routers may have communication issues with certain devices (no "here is a link to devices known to be ok/nok").
