Turning inputs off on muso QB

All,

Can't find using the app if you can disable inputs on the above.  Namely Spotify.

As some of you may be aware, once you have allowed someone access to your Wi-Fi, they can control your HiFi from 100's of miles away using Spotify. A frightening thought when/If you use a streaming pre amp or have the remote cable between your steamer and amp like I used to(NDX&SN2). Altho I have turned Spotify off on the NDX too.

I have since removed this cable just in case that happens again.

Tonight when watching TV via an AV amp, Spotify was launched on the AV amp. I have now removed the network cable to prevent that happening again.

I worry now that Spotify could be launched in the middle of the night on the muso next to my bed ! 

Any suggestions?

I could change the Wi-Fi password but not sure how to do this with one of Sky's new routers ?

Best,

Ray.

Forgive my ignorance, but how?

It's not allowing someone access to your wifi actually, its when your Naim device is paired with a mobile and used to play stuff on someone else's Spotify account. Normally it's Bluetooth pairing rather than wifi. The Spotify system remembers approved replay devices and if your visitor goes off with your Naim unit still in their list of replay devices, then they can select that from wherever they are and your device will play their choice. As they can't hear that it's working, they will probably turn it up loud!

It's not the OP's Spotify account. It's the absent friend's Spotify account. And the friend changing their password wouldn't work either. They need to remove the Naim unit from their playback devices list.

So the solution for the OP is; not to allow anybody who lives elsewhere to pair anything with the OP’s Naim music system?

All,

Thanks for you input(no pun intended).

I don't think that pairing someone's device (usually a phone)with your Spotify enabled equipment is the problem.

I think what happens is that once you have given them access to your router over WiFi,  it shows them all available devices on your network.  For  eg, my friend was able to launch Spotify on his phone from afar , under available  devices it showed my Denon receiver  and he was able to play music through it.  There was no pairing etc, it just shows up on his list of available devices.

There must be an easier way to stop this without resetting all devices, I don't want to be doing a factory reset on the receiver or Muso.

Won't changing the router password fix it?

I turned several inputs off on my Star I guess I'll try to do it on my Qb in the bedroom.  However, I have to say it's really incredible to have it sync with the Star and roaming around the house is a luxury and great sound.  Now I'm really busy loading my CDs into the Star.  I did have one faint aha concern thinking I should have bought the separates incase the streamer has to get fixed or the CDP. The sound and function I'm having no problem with but there's always something to learn about on the app.
