  1. A similar Android Auto bug was just reported in another thread, which seems easier to replicate across various flatter Categories. I think it's likely to be related to this report too. Andre
  2. Actually this seems to happen with Android Auto in any Category - Albums, Artists, Folders, Playlists, etc. @maxmp If you go into any category in AA, and tap the Shuffle button at the top of the songs list, PA starts shuffling the first group object in that Category rather than the currently viewed one. Andre
  3. It's not generally a good idea to use both equalizers at the same time. Just disable the stand-alone app from working with the main Poweramp app's output - untick it in PA-EQ > Settings > Equalizer > Known Players. Andre
  4. Try setting the Hi-Res output frequency to 192kHz/24-bit. Also try with DVC on or off. Andre
  5. I'm just letting you know how it works. Repeat plays of the same song have never been counted though, and that is by design. The feature-update to implement a one-song playback mode a year ago (build 856) combined with the percentage threshold method for play counts (build 899; previously the count was incremented merely by opening a track without needing to actually play any of it) means that the behaviour is perhaps not exactly as you would wish though - hence this Feature Request for it to work in a different manner. My own preference (for what it's worth, and remember I'm not th
  6. Repeat plays are ignored deliberately, Max decided to actively NOT count any repetitive playbacks as 'new' plays. Other than that, the play-count increment system is very simple, it occurs whenever the track changes: if the counter has got beyond the configured threshold figure, the count gets incremented. Of course that fails if you spool back to the start of the same track before moving on. Andre
  7. It's not a bug insofar as the feature is functioning as per design. However I do agree that, especially in the recently implemented 'one song' playback mode, the design is not necessarily what everyone might want it do be. I'll move this thread to Feature Requests for you. Personally I think that if the song-play-count method stays the way it is, then in single-song mode the counter ought to stay paused at the END of the current song when it is finished (so pressing Play at that point could start the next song playing, rather than playing the same one again). Either that, or achieving the
  8. I tend to use Folders mode rather than Folders Hierarchy, but I assume that AA shuffling within Folders Hierarchy works in the same way that it does when playing in the main app. That means that a random subfolder is picked first, and all of its songs are played in shuffled order. Then a new random subfolder is chosen and that too is played in shuffled order, etc. If you instead want ALL songs from ALL of the subfolders to be completely jumbled in any order (without any subfolder grouping), enable PA Settings > Library > Lists > Shuffle All Songs in Folder Hierarchy. Andre
  9. Still the same solution, which is my normal way of starting Poweramp playback, I never use the Play icon at the top of the phone screen (although I do sometimes use the Shuffle one). Just open the subfolder and select the song you want to start playing. As long as you have Repeat mode set to 'Advance Category' (which is the default) PA will carry on playing the next subfolders/etc in order. Andre
  10. To play, just select a song. No need for a special button. Andre
  11. Also long-pressing on a song to move it up or down in a list, or Re-Sorting it. I suggested in the other thread to try making the files read-only? (Might need to do that on a PC, Android's chmod/etc file management is crap) Andre
  12. It'd be almost time to wake up again if I selected 120 mins. I never hear the end of 30 minutes! As I said, if you enable 120 minutes keep checking every so often to see that the counter is decreasing as expected, and if not what activity might have stopped it. Andre
  13. The Android Auto interface is less comprehensive than the main PA one. You might be better selecting the play mode on the phone, before connecting your device. You ought to be able to start a subfolder playing in AA though, and choose the Shuffle Songs mode. Andre
  14. Unless your device is maybe sending a stop command to prevent auto-playback? Check Settings > Headset/Bluetooth > Last Processed Commands a short time after connecting your phone to the car head-unit. Andre
  15. I use a 30 minute timer every night and it always works. Once set, I tend to just turn the screen off and listen - no point in setting the timer if I'm still using the phone rather than actually trying to get to sleep. Occasionally I might re-open the phone to change the music selection, but usually it's on Shuffle anyway so I just use the headset buttons. What do you see if you tap the Timer icon again - has it continued to decrement the remaining time while you have been doing other things? Andre
  16. Most Android Auto implementations (but not all) use Bluetooth to transfer the audio, so Settings > Headset/Bluetooth > Resume on Bluetooth should do it. There is also Settings > Audio > Audio Focus > Resume on Start, but that would commence playback every time the app is started - either via Android Auto or manually. Andre
  17. Poweramp doesn't download or store any music at all, it merely plays any audio files from your device that you tell it to. You can define what folders are accessible to it using PA Settings > Library > Music Folders. Andre
  18. @ToG The physical M3U files should not be modified by playback, only by making changes. Could you maybe establish what action you might be doing that is causing the file to be updated? You could try setting your M3U files to read-only. Android doesn't support sensible things like chmod without rooting (thanks Google) but you could set the permission by putting the SD Card onto a PC and changing its status to Read-Only there. PA will still allow changes to be made internally to the playlist (all such actions are handled internally in the database) but writing those changes back to the file
  19. When a single song stops playing, the counter is reset to zero rather than remaining paused at the end of the song. So when you later advance to the next song, PA considers the current song is 'unplayed' (counter at zero). Try pausing a song just before its end, and then advance to the next track, and see if that works. Andre
  20. The play counter increments whenever the current track has reached at least the threshold length at the point playback moves on to the next track - either by you manually changing the track, or if PA auto-advances to a new track. The counter does not increment if you stay within the same track. So continuous repeat playing won't keep adding to the counter for example, nor will changing track while the counter is at zero (i.e. less than the threshold limit). The counter also does not increment whenever you are playing from any of the counter-based categories - Most Played, or any othe
  21. You'd still need to grant access to your music folders, then re-create your settings, ratings, playlists, downloaded cover art, etc. Not really easier, but would work as a last resort. Andre
  22. @maxmp Are the timecodes shown in the commands list generated by PA as it receives them, or are the timestamps included within the event details actually issued by Android? Somehow the latest versions of PA seem to be receiving them delayed anyway, and as it's suddenly happening across several Android versions and models it seems unlikely to be a change in Android. Andre
  23. The only thing that should cause PA to write M3U playlists back to storage is making any changes to it - such as adding or removing any songs, or changing the sequence order, for example. Any such alteration will cause the whole file to be re-written, there is no facility to append to an existing file if (for example) you happen to just add one new song at the end. PA has only one format for saving playlists - which uses the filename and its full Android path, plus any ratings information. It doesn't have a relative path feature. If you need to keep the original file, with no changes and
  24. @arinzz7 It is on the middle-term radar I believe, but the emphasis of Poweramp's development has always been audio excellence and operational features. So what is effectively more of a karaoke addition is perhaps a bit of a lower priority. Andre
  25. @Big Ndets And this is with Advanced Player Tracking (ADB DUMP permission) enabled? While it's not exactly ideal to have both EQs running together, it ought to be possible to force it. Andre
