MoOde audio integration w/ mpd - Spotify

Hi All - I am trying to setup MoOde audio w/ HA to run some automations (turn on my receiver)… it works with internet ratio (shows as ‘off’), but not with spotify (shows as ‘off’).

somehow, I want to pick up that spotify is playing on this device. Any thoughts would appreciated. Thanks!

spotify playing:

Any luck? I wanted to move away from Volumio as it’s so buggy but the integrations were so much better in it.

Any one had any success with this combo? (Media Player + moOde + Spotify)
I am facing the same issue…

same here. Has anyone figured this one out yet?
