  1. I'm 99% sure this is a Android issue, even though 4.3 was certified by the Bluetooth group.  I've had (Alpine radio) and heard about the same issue with just about all BT devices since 4.x came out.   (I'm currently using a "plain Jane" Note 3 w/4.3, but my bionic did the same thing after I went to 4.x))  I think the car radio makers assume you'll have a eyefone, so only test with that.


    To me, it's really a pain, as I listen to Audio books with Poweramp, and some of their tracks are an 1hour plus!!!

    I've ask that some kind of delay be added to Poweramp before it "listens" to BT commands, but as always, all I get are deaf ears.  (Connect to BT, Wait 2 seconds (user adjustable) while receiving BT (FF/REV only?) and confirming commands but doing nothing with them, dump all received BT commands, start paying attention to BT commands, QED)

  2. >you can mount network locations natively to the Android filesystem

    This is NOT a good solution for many reasons. The most important: it does not work for not english characters (e.g. french, Portuguese, or spanish characters with accents).

    " CIFS Mount" will break any folder of file including not basic engish characters. It will simply be useless. This is not a solution at all.

    See this website for a fix:


  3. This used to work just fine, but for some reason they broke the library directory requester. All they really need to do is put the old requester back. Never figure out why why they released the broken one to start with.

  4. There are plans to add DNLA support, which does almost the same, but doesn't require such scanning and works better with various AV equipment.

    I've used DLNA devices, and none work well as music players. Just give us back an option to show all directories, please.

  5. Mounting via CIFS is not an option. Just imagine the time it would take each time to scan a 300 GB music library, that's just ridiculous.

    SMB browsing needs to eliminate all pre-scanning and needs to operate like a file browser only scanning the folder that is currently open (without subfolders).

    Sure it's an option. At one point Poweramp had a full directory requestor, and I did this all the time. Then they changed it to filter most directories for people that don't understand computers. I just wish they add the options back to remove the stinking filter!

  6. I just noticed that his new directory requester limits what you can select. He knows about this, and plans to fix it. You can still get around it, but you'll need to be careful where you put your "mount Point" for now. Your mount point needs to look like a SDcard location for now.

    I'm OK, as I never changed my path. (you just can't select it for now)

  7. I've obviously missed something, but what has TV got to do with an audio player?


    Most TV's I've owned have speakers. And the screen is much easier to read, than most phones.

  8. I'd like to see an option for a slight delay when you get a Bluetooth re-connect. The Bluetooth in my car radio has always been wacky (with all phones) and I like to add a short delay (.5 to 1 second) after the Bluetooth is reestablished to let the radio behave better.
