Much improved! Hope there's time for a feature request now: metadata over Bluetooth? When I play the app in my car, the console screen does not show station, album, or track.

I can also confirm that I am now able to navigate to all the functions on my Android TV. Thanks. Will advise if I see any other challenges.

A couple of updates have gone out over the past few days.   Currently  4.0.6  should be available to everyone on the play store.
Can check the current version via,  settings -> about

Changes in the new versions:
- fixes offline blocks failing to download after connectivity issues.
- fixes memory leak requiring app restart on some devices.
- fixes dpad navigation issues on older versions of Android TV.
- added option to disable the slideshow in landscape orientation.
- added screen options to override the screen off behavior.

Yeah, I'm not even seeing an option to uncheck the Slideshow, other than the Ken Burns Effect option.

I'm no coder, but it seems like it would be easy enough to add the option in the App Settings to allow for keeping the screen on when the app is open. If not in the app itself, but adding the option in the Notifications section once the app is downloaded. Just like how each phone allows you to turn Notifications on and off, the same could be done for keeping the screen on by checking a box.

Are there any plans to fix the app from not letting the phone go into sleep mode? That's been my main complaint, how the phone screen no longer stays on when the app is on. I can turn the phone sideways and it will play the slideshow and stay on, but other than giving the song and artist name in faint white letters, barely visible on the screen, it shows nothing else. I really enjoyed glancing at my phone to see which artist was playing, the album cover, whether I had already rated the song, etc.

Maybe I'm the only one missing this feature, but it was a big part of the appeal of listening to RP for me.

 
You are not alone. I've posted a comment about a few bugs 4 days ago - sleep mode issue also mentioned - but still no answer from jarro. Updated app today, photo slideshow still appears although I've unchecked Slideshow option.

Thanks Jarro!
 
Something has changed! :-)

I still see "resume download" but underneath those lines it says now:

([>] RP Main Mix @ Med (64k)  [bin]
                 103 Hours 42 Mins

Whoop! Whoop! I'm not trying it now (avoiding the risk in resetting the cache) but once in flight I will! It is now the London to Sydney flight though...

The "224" does not count down... storage now at 2.70 GB. If every song is about 12 MB... then we should be almost there (I cannot recall the bitrate, I never do the highest with all the driving/flying noise it is pointless to use the best rates).

Tried Android Auto (after first stopping Podcast Addict and starting RP):

Only the "main" channel in my Ahead Buffer.

The work around is to fill that buffer to the max tomorrow :- )

Hi, 

I have the same problem. Been using the previous Android app on my Sony XBR for several years without issue. Flac mode sounds fantastic on my system. However, the latest version has no directional capability on the main screen. The app opens up with the Settings gear icon highlighted, however, you cannot navigate from it with the remote buttons as before. You can, however, select Settings and the navigation buttons work there. Very frustrating as can no longer pause or select other streams.

I'm not enjoying the new app at all. I'm sure you must have had reasons for the update but for me, it's a disaster.
It was stable and was my first choice for almost all my listening but now I'm having problems with downloading cache blocks - same as blackbirds. Nothing appears to be happening on most attempts.  It has worked, twice, but instead of getting two blocks I have one double-length one - no drama, just strange. But now as I type it's not working again. This is really infuriating and immensely disappointing. I've even dropped my download quality to see if that helps but no. The more I press 'Add Block' the more the number of songs goes up, but that's it that's all it does.

I have just managed to buffer ahead about 4 hours but when I went back and pressed Add Block it has, of course, deleted the buffering ahead cache and now I have neither. 

Downloading on LG v30 Android 9.
