I'm having the same problem, too; audio is fine and everything works as it should, but no song or artist info is being sent to my BT car kit display. Tried with a couple of different phones, and other streaming apps seem to work fine, but it's a no go with the RP app...

Hi Bill.  First, congratulations on your great RP App for caching hours of music.  Just what I need for my hour long commute to and from work, patched into my car stereo.   I have noticed one slight bug.   There is frequently a short (less than one second) break of silence near the end of most songs.   Not a big problem, only slightly annoying.   I am using an I5 with all the latest updates and using RP App version 5.1 (809).   Is there anything I need to do, or is it just a bug that might get fixed in a future App upgrade?   Keep up the great work!   Cheers.   Long time RP Supporter.

 
Haven't heard about that one.  Try deleting the app & reinstalling it from the App Store.

I only want to thank for the new cache/play without network connectivity functionality, it's great.
I can cache RP content at home/work and listen in my car while travelling.
Thanks!

Ok then...so if I have NO Wifi, (or, for experiment sake I just turn OFF the WIFI on my phone) the app will play from the cache (as long as I have the *Cell Data* checkbox unchecked)

But now Im confused again, bc the other day I filled the cache and it said 12hrs.....now atm, some days later, it says 0hrs 0 mins.

Apparently now I have no cache, even though I havent used it since I filled it.

The cache will remain available indefinitely as long as you aren't connected to a network (ie:  the 'Cell Data' box is unchecked & you're not connected to a WiFi network).

I'll have to look it over.  I haven't used the cache function lately.

Can you make it so the cache only fills with sets that don't have any U2? {#Wink}

FYI, The app just won't work for me. I've uninstalled and re-installed several times. It looks good, but when I hit play (or autostart), it displays the latest song in the playlist, then shows "commercial free listener supported radio", Then the next several songs in quick succession (about 10-15 seconds each), then goes silent. It does give me a nice psychic feeling for knowing the next few songs though.

Or you could keep an under-educated phone for making phone calls and buy an Android tablet for all that other stuff.

Scott's disclaimer: I do not use this feature because I have a flip-phone.

The cache is *not* a time-shifting feature. It loads up to 12 hours of music but always attempts to remain in sync with the RP stream, so that when you go from a wifi zone to a no-signal zone, the music doesn't stop. Once you're back on a network, it fills the cache again but no matter what, what you're hearing will always be in sync with the live stream (or will actually be the live stream)...

12 hours after filling the cache, it will be empty again, whether you listen for 12 hours, 0 hours, or stop and start. As I understand it.

***UPDATE....the caching process seems to be working in order, but my phone is playing the same stream as my laptop so it is obv NOT playing from the cache, When I get to a place with no wifi (like work) how do I play from cache?
