A minor whinge. Clicking the RP icon on the main page doesn't pull down a menu like it does on other pages. So as near as I can tell, I have to go to the song info, then click on the icon to get the menu in order to get to the forums.

(sent from my pc).

Understood. Oh well. Thanks for the quick response, and the safe-click link!

In case it matters, or at least for historical purposes in case it helps somebody else going forward, the tablet is an Oshion S1 purchased online through TMart.com — it will not impress, but it at least allows me to pull up all the family calendars together, RP, and the local weather from the comfort of my kitchen wall. 45€. And took the better part of 5 weeks to get here. Guess you get what you pay for... {#Bananasplit}

Okay, I am posting this here, in this forum topic, because I have only encountered it in the Android app.  Although I usually listen through the Windows 8 app (which has its own issues - more later, and in the appropriate forum topic)  at home (right now I am using the Roku app instead - don't use if often, but when I do, I haven't noticed any glitches or odd behaviour, other than occasionally losing the stream), I do most of my listening to RP through the Android app, and I have upped my data plan to cope with the load.

More than once now, on separate days, the app has jumped ahead a song or two.  When you look at the playlist, the song that it is playing is not there until five or so minutes later.  Then, when that song comes up on the playlist, it jumps back to the start of it.  It seems like it might be skipping a song.  This happened on March 26 between 7:10 pm Central and 7:23 (5:10 - 5:23 RP time).  My player jumped from Beth Orton Stolen Car to Natalie Merchant Giving Up Everything, several minutes before Natalie came up on the playlist.

It seems like the app gets to look ahead at the coming playlist and can skip over songs.

I don't see any pattern to this or any specific songs, but on this day, it skipped over Sigur Ros Hjomalind and Talk Talk Eden.

 
Make sure you're running the current version of the app.

Hello! And thanks for the amazing programming!

Recently bought a (cheap, but functional) Android tablet, locked with KitKat, and am getting no sound at all through the Radio Paradise app (v3.2.16.gp).

I saw that there were only OGG streams available now, so went about some troubleshooting:
  • I've completely uninstalled, rebooted, then reinstalled the latest RP app. Tried each of the available OGG streams available. Left them open for hours. No love, no sound.
  • I uninstalled the latest RP app version, found an older version of the RP app online (v2.something.something). Installed it ... and it worked ... but *only* with MP3 streams. The OGG streams were not working in this older version. Also tried leaving them running for extended periods of time. Nope.
  • To troubleshoot my (manufacturer-)installed version of Android itself as not supporting OGG somehow or completely, I installed the ServeStream player app, connected it directly to a RP OGG stream (http://....), and it worked fine.
  • I've uninstalled and reinstalled both the old version of the app and the latest version ... repeatedly. I can't EVER get the RP app to stream OGG in ANY version of the app.
To further clarify, song text comes through. The song titles and artists update just fine, and in time with what I see streaming on my laptop. In BOTH versions. In the OLD version of the app, I get the HD slideshow — I *think* only when MP3 streams are connected (?? I forget ... and tired of troubleshooting at this point). No OGG sound. But in the latest version of the app, I get neither slideshow nor sound. I've also seen a few recent reviews in the Play store claiming a similar issue. Waiting minutes or hours for the stream to start just leaves me sitting minutes or hours in silence. And just to say it once, this is on WiFi.

So, is there a known issue with the RP app on Android? Is it possible to bring back other stream types (MP3?, AAC?) so I've got some options here when one type's not working?

Thanks thanks thanks, and looking forward to spreading RP's soundtrack further into my life.

I just got a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and installed the RP App. I am having issues with the PSD button, the song will change but there is no audio.  If I hit the stop button than the play button right after the regular stream comes on and everything is fine.  However, if I try to use the PSD button again I get he same results.  It is like the PSD song does not recognize the audio controls.  Anyone else having this issue with the Android App?  I am using version 3.2.15.gp

Dating yourself?  ;-)

My wife and I share a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which is a 'phablet', i.e., a small tablet with phone capabilities.  (Who knows, we are probably older than you.)

We don't text often but when we do it is SO much easier with the larger smart phone.

Moreover, I spend a lot of time in the bush (back country, mountains).  Once upon a time I would bring along reams of 1:50,000 topographical maps and other maps.  

Now , I carry dozens of highly detailed 1:50,000 topo maps and JPEG snap-shots of GoogleEarth maps on the phablet.   As the more remote places I frequent have no cell phone service, it is easy to turn off the 'phone' and save the battery.

 
P.S.  I never carry music into the back country for both enjoyment and security reasons.  I can usually hear grizzlies and moose before I see them and so it becomes easy to cede territory (and stay out of trouble).   That doesn't work so well with walkmans, MP3 players, etc.   

Same for bicycling and running in an urban environment.  Nothing obstructs my hearing.
