Cache block issue still persists (can't make separate blocks). What's more, there is another issue with it: after I downloaded one block I tried to download another one but it can not be done (I get a notification on my phone to "Stop Filling Cache" which never happened before, and afterwards there is an additional notification  on RP's  app homepage which reads "Download error: connection timed out" although my internet connection is fine, so I guess that it might be a temporary thing with RP server in Europe). I'll keep my eye on this and will inform about it in the days to come.

, many thanks for adding Slideshow and Screen options, very useful.

This is a kudos post! I'm not going to ask for anything, I swear. (well, maybe one thing...)

I have always loved RP and enjoyed the simplicity of the last version of the Android app. That said, I did want a couple things changed. I wanted to be able to listen to the other fine radio feeds that were available on the website. I also wanted to choose whether or not the screen stayed on when the app was active.

I am absolutely thrilled that both those concerns have been addressed. In the process, the app has retained its simple and intuitive interface. It took a bit for me to figure out how to "go live" (Sync), which was my only concern with the new app. I'm now quite happy!

So what do I want? Please have the app open to the Bill & Rebecca desert picture as it did before! They are Radio Paradise, so they should be front and center, both in the app and in our minds while using it.

Thank you again!

I've started a new topic for bluetooth metadata since it has and will be be an ongoing issue for years.  There are a few  things people have found that can help.
Will try to get some info for that organized.
https://radioparadise.com/comm...

Regarding the music app list,  I'm not sure how it  is generating that.   But  my hunch is  it is just the apps that  are registered to play digital audio files,  that shouldn't have any affect on metadata support.

Apparently my Toyota RAV4 EV is one that doesn't. When connected it lists Qobuz, Tidal, Google Play, VLC, and other music apps on my Android phone, but does not list the RP app even though I have played music from it over the Bluetooth several times, so it's no surprise it doesn't display metadata from RP.

Thank you for these updates!

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.

 Laptopdog wrote:
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...

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

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

You can, however, select Settings and the navigation buttons work there. Very frustrating as can no longer pause or select other streams.
