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.

It's not easy to install anything outside  the play store on Android TV.

But the directional pad is fully supported,  very odd it is not working for you.
What model Android TV is that?

Hopefully have this sorted soon.   Having trouble reproducing it.   The model info is helpful thanks.

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.

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 :- )

I will need to do some testing on OxygenOS to figure out what's going on.

It's possible the blocks are there but just not getting drawn to the screen.
Definitely possible if the buffer ahead feature is working.
In which case you could theoretically access them from the Android Auto app.

Sorry Jarro... it does not seem stuck. The value showed "224" was from the beginning... I assumed it to be a kind of "target". When I monitor the storage of the phone RP still grows. I am now on 2.49 GB. Also the notifications of the phone show the option "Stop Filling Cache".

It is a OnePlus 6T and Android 9 (OxygenOS 9.017)

RP now as I write it has grown to 2.51 GB

OW changing cache location will throw everything away... And I am flying tomorrow... :- )

Chromecast will use the  wifi bitrate.    And can play flac fine.

Hello,

I am wondering at what bitrate is being streamed to the Chromecast when casting? If FLAC is selected in the app, is that the bitrate the Chromecast is receiving? Thank you.

The lockscreen cover art  is something you might be able to adjust in the phone settings.    That behaviour varies by phone model.

Something is wrong if  it is stuck at 224.   That should countdown as files are downloaded.
I'll need to look into it.
What  model phone and android version is that?

Also something you can try is,  from settings  ->  cache options ->  change the cache location

But I am very sorry... All I see is "pause download" or "resume download" and "cancel". Nothing else :- (

The buffering uses the same system...  So definitely odd.

Lot of questions here.  I'll do my best.

- Yes,  there is a separate  notification/icon  for the  background downloads.   ( A notification is required for it to keep running in the background )

- All info for the downloads  status is in the offline listening page.   ( the cloud icon from main screen )

- You can play any live  channel or offline block while it is downloading.

- Each block still has it's own play and delete button.   They show up after the first song  for a  group has been downloaded.   Blocks are now grouped by channel and bitrate.   Pending downloads  are grouped together and can be cancelled  without affecting anything that has already been downloaded.

- The  first  two storage locations  are  different but are on the same drive for most devices now.   So the free space is usually the same.   This is a bit of a legacy issue  from when  internal storage was a lot smaller and every device had a removable sdcard.

Currently I am abroad in a country far far away, with occasional access to Wi-Fi only. Went for a walk and wanted some music, no problem because I have my RP app and stored two 24 hour caches of music for the flight and here... "network error"!! App has been replaced and all was gone... oh well back in the hotel I will have to create new ones then... well that was easier said then done. I have no clue whatsoever how full the Cache Block is... two RP icons are shown (one for the app, one for the download?). Something is downloading as I can see in "settings - storage - music & audio" that RP is taking more space. How far are we? What stream is it? Pause and resume don't show the status... Can I play and download at the same time? Oh and just realised - in the old app we had a play and delete button for each block - I cannot see them now, will they show up when everything is downloaded? If so please don't I might be just happy with 8 of the 12 hours for example.

Chromecast support will be great I am sure (once I am home again), the various RP mixes too, although I probably will use the box standard one mainly. But currently I want the old app back :- ( Sorry. Too hooked and reliant on RP since 10 years and I am happy to see that RP now runs in my car as well. RP is my music app of choice, in fact the only one I use.

PS Storage Location is a choice between primary and secondary storage - _both_ are 96.91 GB free... ? On a Oneplus 6T. App version 4.0.1.20.gp
