  1. Thanks! This post covers just about everything. :)
  2. Sorry, by "get to them" I mean assume I have an album with no artwork, or the internet search didn't produce anything useful. I have a useful image of the artist, and I want to apply that to the album with no artwork. Or... apply that same artist's image so it's used in the playlist.
  3. Trying to go at this from a different angle... Viewed as either a list of albums by the same artist, or by album, it has the right artwork. Is there any way to get to the albums' artwork?
  4. Assume the tracks are properly tagged, PA goes to the Internet for each track in a playlist?? One of my gripes (posted earlier under feature request let the user assume more control over searches) is some search results produce artwork 100% irrelevant (dunno how that happens). Going to the internet for, in some cases several hundred tracks, is ...um... odd. Particularly if the art is just flat wrong. Is there no way to simply refer to the existing album art associated the track's album of origin?
  5. I'm not sure about doing screen grabs from the phone. If I tap the playlist and try to apply album art at that point, I can select the art. When I tap a specific track in the playlist, I"m back to the zap screen. In short, nothing seems to associate art with tracks. Almost all of my lists have the same artist, with tracks in the desired order. I thought artist art, at least, might appear.
  6. The work flow is: Current screen is "Zap", title to play (at bottom of screen) is from the playlist. Tap the ... choose album art and "No data". Based on what you've said, I don't see a way to assign, at any point from choose playlist to play track, a default background.
  7. The idea is to put up something other than the default jagged screen default for no artwork. Artist artwork, album artwork, one piece of art for the entire playlist is fine.
  8. In a playlist that uses albums with existing album art, the art isn't displayed. Attempting to define album art for the playlist, "Data not available" is displayed briefly. Why is that, and is there a fix or work-around? Build: 875-876
  9. In several instances the presented artist and/or album art is hopelessly clueless. "Alpine Soundtracks" gets several versions of "South Carolina Living" magazine covers. There is nothing about generic Alps images. I have no idea how many other artists and albums are so afflicted. Being able to tweak the search terms should help with fixing that problem. Being able to include files will be helpful, too.
  10. @Crericper Interesting. Play Service was mentioned, more than once, as a possible problem. IIRC, tinkering with it was occasionally useful, but didn't prove to be a certain work-around. The infinite loop must have been extremely active to hammer the CPU to the point of heating to the point it did. Of course high battery consumption inevitable in this instance. FWIW, I've been using existing playlists with no problems. Battery consumption is well within the expected range.
  11. Maybe I slept through the lecture, but what was the cause of the problem?
  12. I confirm problem resolved. Bye, bye, thread... I'm going to miss you! LOL
  13. I think you're saying to just start playing songs without queuing or playlists. For example, pick the first file in a artist collection? Or start from the first file in a folder?
  14. The common theme in the reports appears to be playlists. Further, how the list is formed seems to have no obvious impact. In short, use playlist, cook phone. The question, then, is what happens with "play this song, play the next, etc." What happens with "start a song, and shuffle in some form"? Further, looking at the posts, it appears that the phone model, Android version, and rooted/not rooted have little impact on the problem.The short summary becomes "use playlist on any phone, cook phone." Now to get that a) acknowledged and b) corrected. Frankly, I'm inclined to think the
  15. @dinfinity This is probably the clearest review of the battery problem to date. Since the use of playlists seems to the common thread, that prompts two, related, questions. Have you investigated the use of queuing vs. playlists, and has logcat shown you any clues about similarity to playlist failure? I'm more than a little frustrated that there seems to be virtually no obvious, in-depth developer effort on the matter. At one point I was told, summarizing, "we have millions of users and only a few people with this problem. This isn't a place we'll spend time on". That doesn't sq
  16. In my experience, 820 didn't fix the problem. Leaving WiFi and BT on seems to increase drain and heating. Your Mileage May Vary
  17. Considering PA and the unlocker are tightly bound, what matters is why directly related PA activity is at the top of the battery consumption list. The icon question is not the primary problem. @krazzyvishal Did you check to see if Chromecast re-asserted itself. For some reason, it returned on my phone. It's disabled now, but I'm watching to see if it magically returns.
  18. Why is the PA Unlock icon at the top of power consumers?
  19. The screen grabs are in probably chaotic order, but I hope they point to what surprised me after leaving PA idle. What are wakelocks, and do I care?
  20. You read my mind - that's exactly what I want to know. Good on ya!
  21. Well. I just had two "isn't that interesting" moments with PA. The first is probably OT, but here it is: my S7 phone nearly locked up to the "pull the battery to restart the phone" level. An extended single digit to Samsung for not letting the battery be user accessible. After enough button pushing and screen waiting, I got to the home screen and saw the PA announced as not working, stop or keep waiting. As soon as I stopped PA, the phone went back to being a normal phone with no unusual delays. I've seen the phone lock up like this a few times over the past couple of months. I rebuilt t
  22. Poorly asked on my part. With repeat on, and after playing the last track in the list, is the list shuffled on starting to play track #1 or is the existing shuffled list repeated without a further shuffle?
  23. Confirming: Choose shuffle songs, choose shuffle off, choose shuffle songs will generate a new list? Also, if repeat is set, when is a new shuffle done?
  24. At what point is the shuffled list created? AFAIK, the process is to open something in a queue or playlist, let it run briefly, get to "shuffle songs" and there's the shuffled list. After that question, how do I trigger a new shuffle of the songs? That is, using the shuffled songs, and want to either shuffle the shuffled list or shuffle the original unshuffled list again. Think of it as "how do I get two bites at the shuffled apple?"
