Hi @lrsmith! Welcome to community! 

Please use the following steps to activate your in-home device:

  • Launch the Pandora application.
  • Select New User.
  • An activation page will appear with a code - leave this code up on the device screen as you continue.

From the web, visit www.pandora.com/[brand of device] and enter the activation code there (e.g. www.pandora.com/yamaha).

Or, from a mobile device, open the Pandora app and go to Settings, then tap Device Activation and enter the code.

Finally, select Continue on the in-home device.

When I launch the Pandora application there is no place to select "New User." Clicking on the "T" icon I can choose Settings, but it just brings up account information, nothing to do with connecting to a device. Very frustrating...

Hi @lrsmith 

From your Yamaha there is no option to create a new account? Can you let me know the model and year of your Yamaha.

Yamaha pre-amp WXC-50 purchased new in October 2020. It comes with
Musiccast software, which allows me to select Pandora from a list of about
15 providers (including Spotify, which "sees" the pre-amp and has allowed
me to play music on our stereo). But I don't see any option to set up a new
account in Musiccast.

Thanks for any help you can give.
