I had problem with Spotify playing too fast on my SoundBlaster x-fi 5.1. I made the change to /etc/spopd.conf as mentioned in this thread: Spotify: Playback too fast - Volumio Development / Bug reports - Volumio
It’s working fine. But it leaves me with another problem. At what seems like random point in time, my modified spopd.conf gets overwritten. It isn’t a generic version since both my spotify_username and spotify_password is the correct ones. Does the plugin update itself and is there a solution to avoid it. It is a little annoying to have to manually copy the spopd.conf and reboot at randomly times.
