  1. DVC is Direct Volume Control, where PA takes over a lot of audio processing that Android would otherwise be doing. Normally if you turn it off then the volume can get a bit quieter as PA can no longer control the headroom so will send lower levels to avoid potential clipping/distortion. You could always override it with the pre-amp gain, or honestly why not just turn the main volume up a bit? Andre
  2. It's not worth even trying to output high-res audio to the speaker inside a phone, they can't even reproduce FM radio frequency ranges, never mind CD or higher. Andre
  3. You have your answer right there. So yes, you can enable high-res output for the headphones/AUX socket on your phone. Give it a try if you want to make sure, it can be enabled with even the basic wired earbuds that came free with your phone. Of course it will sound better with better headphones, but the phone can output high-res to anything connected to the headphone socket. Andre
  4. Sounds like you have got 'Store/Restore Per Track Progress' enabled. This can be controlled either globally in Settings > Library (where you can enable this feature only for longer tracks if you wish) or locally to each separate Library Category by using the List Options screen (tap the three-dots menu icon) from any song list. Andre
  5. But that's the whole point - in Folders Hierarchy mode, there is no such thing as having an 'albums only' folder at the upper level, nor a 'songs only' folder at the bottom. As with any file system's directory structure - which is what you are viewing in this mode - any folder can potentially contain some files, some folders, or a mixture of both files and folders. So they all need to be dealt with in effectively the same way. To see this, try putting some music files inside one of your 'upper level' folders; you will see them shown as songs along with any other subfolders that the folder might also contain. The only way to avoid that is to flatten the list structure (i.e. use plain Folders mode) where folders can only show file contents, not any other folders, because all of the subfolders are displayed in their own right elsewhere in the flattened list. Andre
  6. Seems OK to me, I'll check again after I see unread posts though. Andre
  7. If anyone else has tried those particular headphones, they will be able to confirm their status for you. It also depends on your device and ROM version of course. As I said above though, cabled headsets ought to be fine as long as they are rated for higher frequency playback, it's whether your device and ROM supports high-res that matters - which you can confirm with any old headset. Andre
  8. You might want to drop an email to support at poweramp.maxmpz@gmail.com in the meantime. I assume you have already read the FAQs at https://forum.powerampapp.com/kb/en_us/purchase/ ? Andre
  9. Strange. Try a complete uninstall of both the main app and the unlocker. Then install the main app from the Play store, then install the unlocker (should still show as purchased and so be a free download). Otherwise we might need to wait for Max to suggest a solution. Andre
  10. I assume that on your device/ROM, hi-res output cannot function with DVC turned off, so PA disables the option when you are in high-res mode. Andre
  11. So what exactly are you saying the problem is, perhaps I have misunderstood? There is only one 'List Options' menu for the whole of Folders Hierarchy any all levels, and if you change the view type, or sorting mode, at any drilling-down depth, that new setting should be enabled for all of Folders Hierarchy - and it should remain so if you exit and restart the app. Andre
  12. I'm not sure about error #9, but you could try clearing data for the Google Play Store app? I assume you are using the same Google account that you purchased the licence with? Andre
  13. You could also long-press on both versions (one at a time) of a few of the duplicated files, and tap Info/Tags to see what directory path details each version shows. Andre
  14. Look in Poweramp Settings > Library > Music Folders and ensure that your ROM hasn't somehow duplicated the actual SD Card as a symbolic link with all the same files in it. If it has, untick whichever version you don't want ,and do another Full Rescan. Andre
  15. Why?After what Max reminded us above, I can't really see any other way to do it, given that any level (from the topmost, to 10+ folders deep) could contain both folders and files. How would you suggest differentiating between those layers for the purposes of sorting/viewing? Currently, PA should remember any List Options changes that you make, applying those to all layers of Folders Hierarchy from now on. Andre
  16. Folders Hierarchy category has only one set of List Options (which covers both its sorting order and the scalable view type). In this category there is no concept of upper 'folders only' layer and a final 'files/songs' level at the bottom of the drill-down layers. Any level can contain both music files and folders/subfolders. Andre
  17. Seems OK to me now in build 860. @cheungie can you confirm it's now fine for you too? Andre
  18. I've just got my head around this one, please call me stupid. In Folders mode there is a clear difference between the 'folders' level and the 'files' level (just like Albums, etc). However in Folders Hierarchy mode, just like in any folder/files directory structure, you can have both folders and files at any drill-down level. Even your main root folder might contain some music files alongside some folders. Thus every drill-down level is the same in terms of both its sort order and view type. My own music collection doesn't have any files saved at the same level as folders, so I just forgot this very obvious possibility. Andre
  19. Thank you, that's definitely helped where long numbers in filenames (such as dates) were getting misinterpreted as track numbers. However my single Songs folder - where, by intent, all ID3 track number tags have been removed from files - still needs some work. All of the following examples should show as having no track numbers as that's how I manually edited the files: Andre
  20. Thanks Max, working fine in build 860 for my test case of the Adele subfolders. @Squeller - are your example cases working in 860 too? Andre
  21. If you downloaded from Google Play, just enable updates and it will do it for you. If you downloaded the app manually as an APK file from here on the website, just download the newest version from the Downloads tab at the top of the page. Andre
  22. That relates to headunits sending spurious commands (especially when initially connecting) which you can indeed tell Poweramp to ignore, But that won't help if the user wants their commands to be actioned, but the head-unit is sending the wrong command. Andre
  23. This seems to be the main problem I am having with the new track display too. I too have a lot of tracks which are Singles, or otherwise not part of any specific album (radio shows, concerts, etc). They don't have any Album Title tag details, and I also specifically batch edited them all to remove any extraneous Track# and Disc# ID3 tags that may have crept in during CD ripping. So it doesn't really make sense in my particular case to have PA invent its own track numbers when I had specifically removed them all. Andre
  24. I can't seem to duplicate that. Could you provide any more info? What ratings mode are you using? Any common factors between your two systems? Andre
  25. The problem is that the view mode is not sticking once changed. When you leave that view and go back again later, it's set differently. The lowest songs/files level is meant to have its own separate List Options setting isn't it? i.e. songs level can have a different List View compared to the one setting for all the folders/subfolders above it.
