  1. In some cases artist art is blank, but album art can be used for artist art. Occasionally the reverse is true. In some cases the album or artist art hopelessly wrong (cardiologist drawing of a heart for the band Heart). Two functions will help : art cut&paste and art Internet search and paste.
  2. AFAIK there's no direct, easy way to shuffle within a list (queue or playlist) of currently playing material. For example, if I've queued up a list of Dixieland tracks, I want them to play back in a random order, but not, not, not(!) into other lists, etc. This is the same with playlists. If I have a playlist of my Dixieland albums, I may want to hear the list of all tracks in the playlist in random order. AFAIK this can't be done now.
  3. Sigh... DoS attacks suck. I guess DoD attacks would suck, too, if you're on the receiving end.
  4. Agree!! Title scrolling is a very useful feature.
  5. My S7 is rooted to 7.1. Fortunately, I can't do custom ROM'S. I suspect your problem is tied to the ROM. Based on something earlier from someone trying to use Vietnamese, you're probably right. Spanish titles may be throwing off spacing. Try English titles to see what happens. I fully agree that the new spectrum/slider control of the playback head is much, much too coarse.
  6. @MeGustaPowerAm What version of Android are you using? The overlapping is almost certainly a screen resolution problem. I haven't seen anything like what's in your screen grabs. I've got PA running right now - lots of stereo and ditto with the Kenwood in the car, using a BT link. Maybe PA and your version of Android aren't getting along with each other well? The fast forward/reverse functionality does seem to have been ...uh... muddled by the new progress bar/slider. It makes jumping to a specific point of time in the track easy enough. Slide the volume display while watching the "time played" numbers until the right drop-in time is found. However, it's much easier to fast forward or back until the right sounds show up. I agree that the arrows and tapping the cover is redundant.
  7. After living with 793, it's turning out to be, overall, a good long step forward. However, UI still strikes me as having a number of "changes for change's sake". Notably, the new slider for where the player is in a track (1/4 way through? 2/3 through?) is now an display of approximate volume, but the "front to back - how far are we?" full bar is missing. Right now I have 56 min track running, and there's no hint, from the sliding volume plot, where in the track the player is. The sliding bar is, ultimately, nice to look at but of little practical value. The thing of value, the original slider is no longer present. I'll repeat comments from other posts, there's no apparent way to shuffle only inside the current queue. Probably the biggest problem I've had with PP is the lack of some sort of user manual to explain the many features and how to use them.
  8. I may be repeating an earlier post (can't find it, if I even saved/submitted it.) One complaint was about turning off the spectrum, etc. - I found it. Strike that complaint. I complained about not being able to shuffle only within the queue. If the capability exists, I can't find it. Does it exist? If not, please add soonest, ignoring every other "want it yesterday" request, of course.
  9. Necro-posting but... Does 793 address " How do I sort by artist, sort the artist's albums by date, and sort each album by track number "
  10. Necro-posting but... I don't see "Ignore Queue" in the 793 Queue options. Does this function exist somewhere else?
  11. Agreed. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" - the UI never left me thinking this is broken. Aside from being unable to limit shuffling to the queue or playlist in use.
  12. I think that Nu Phi Nguyen is getting to something I think is missing in the PA shuffling options, too. I have a collection of Euro Techno tracks. They aren't in albums, they're tracks that aren't in an album sequence. If I take either a playlist of, say, "every track by Worakls", or I enqueue Worakls and N'To material, none of the shuffles let me shuffle just the queue or playlist. The shuffle options are too broad. I want to stay focused on my queue or playlist. AFAIK it's not in PA.
  13. Well, he gets an attaboy and two thumbs up, too. [/ big grin ]
  14. Andre rides to the rescue! [/ a big "attaboy" and two thumbs up ]
  15. Again, look at all of the prior 8.0/Oreo posts saying "I just upgraded to Oreo/8.0 and (whatever) doesn't work." By now it should be obvious PA and Oreo don't get along well. No doubt Andre knows that and will address it with (I hope) the next release. Expecting it to magically start working is ...um... wishful thinking. The choice is working PA under Nougat or MM, or crippled PA under Oreo. It's the user's choice - have Nougat & PA or have Oreo & a crippled PA. Pick one.
  16. Given all of the earlier posts about PA and Oreo, I'd say Oreo breaks PA. I suspect Andre knows that. You can have one or the other, but not both.
  17. Do you have any better sense of when the next build will be released. IIRC the last ETA given was "sometime in April". Can that be sharpened up?
  18. Same thing for me with a rooted Samsung S7 (stock ROM) and Kenwood BT car radios.
  19. I'll repeat my suggestion: some sort of "here's what's here" is needed. At least in my case, and for anyone else not using Nougat, getting 704 appears to be of no value. For that matter, had I known 704 does nothing for my [/non-Nougat phones], this thread wouldn't have been started.
  20. Click on 703 to get 704? Doesn't that seem a bit counter-intuitive? If that's how to get to 704, sobeit, but a "do this to get that" note would be helpful.
  21. Where do I find a 704 download??? C'mon, this should be a no-brainer to answer...
  22. If 704 is in the download horizontal scroll, I don't see it. I do see 588, 703, and an Intel-specific build, but no 704. Added: I forgot to check the Alpha pull-down menu - no 704, just 703.
