Disabled optimisation for both the RP app and Bluetooth, rebooted, but again the same result.

To troubleshoot, I completely uninstalled the RP app, played some music on Spotify, rebooted the phone, and no media controls popped up automatically, so not sure where the issue may lie...

Strange behaviour: 

Whenever I reboot my phone, and right after entering my sim card PIN number, the RP notification media controls pop up automatically. This happens on several devices I own and since the latest app update. At first I thought it was maybe related to media notification handling on Android 11 and that because RP was the last media app I used before rebooting the notification just 'stuck' there, but even if I use another media app and then reboot, the RP notification will still pop up again all by itself...

Not a major issue, but strange nonetheless. I just dismiss the notification anyhow and carry on, but was wondering if it could be looked into sometime... Thanks.

I've been using the RP Android app for many years now, and very recently upgraded my phone to Android 11.  The app works fine and as it should, but I cant' seem to figure out why while within the app itself album art corresponds to the currently playing track, but outside the app (like on the notification shade controls and on the lock screen) album art is always one track behind from what is actually playing.

Hope I can clarify it this way:

Say I launch the app and track 'X' starts playing; when it's over and track 'Y' kicks in, even though within the app track 'Y's' album art is being displayed correctly, on the notification shade and lock screen album 'X's' artwork still persists throughout the whole of track 'Y'. 

Once 'Y' is over and track 'Z' starts playing, within the app album art will update to 'Z's' album art, but outside, track 'Y's' artwork will now be showing, and so on an so forth. Only if I stop playback will the artwork update to the correct one on the notification shade or lock screen...

I don't find this behaviour on the other music apps I've tried on Android 11, and album art is constantly updated both on the apps and on the notification shade controls, so I guess it could maybe be an issue with the way the app receives and handles track metadata?

It's not really a big deal, since the music is what's important and the app otherwise works with no hiccups, but was wondering if anyone's got a similar issue, and if the developer's could maybe look into it sometime.

Thanks is andvance!

OK one more update ;) I removed all extra storage devices usb and sd and restarted RP App and set cache location and now it will download cache blocks and buffer ahead. No clue as to why but it works so I am going to leave it as is. I think I will have enough storage space without the usb and sd.

Jarro thanks for looking into this for me.

I should have mentioned the TV box has Android version 7.1.2. I have cleared the cache and uninstalled the app but on reinstall I get the same behaviour.  I have also formatted the SD card as removable and as onboard storage and also removed the SD card but nothing changed the behaviour.

It's stopping due to a network error.  But it does  give up fairly easily  to avoid draining phone batteries. 

But there is another feature that may work in the background.  ( It's  designed to fill the cache  while the device is plugged in  so is more aggressive about retries )
Not sure if it will think the head unit is plugged in.    My understanding is they stay on  for a couple of hours after the ignition is turned off.
The hope is it will  have a couple of hours to  refill an offline channel  when you park the car at night.

Can try that via.  Settings -> Cache Options -> Cache Autofill  ->  Add Channel

We may need to add a setting here to bypass the  battery protection stuff depending on their behavior.
