  1. Thanks. Having given it a quick look, it does seem as though there's almost too many things to configure, but I may give it a try.
  2. Sorry, now I've tried that it's lead me to another question. Is there a way to disable the Pro Buttons while keeping the simple Seekbar? Not really sure why one should be dependent on the other.
  3. Great, thanks, I'll try that. 👍🙂
  4. Hi folks, Is there any way to disable or make disappear the Category (>>>) buttons from the main player UI? It's really annoying when I am half way through a long playlist and accidentally touch one of the buttons, which then switches the category and there's no way to resume the position of the previous playlist. Thanks, Simon.
  5. If this is a permission issue that can't be fixed by the app, then can I ask why it doesn't affect numerous other music player apps? Does PA require different permissions to other music players?
  6. I don't think I've had that update yet. Still on build 893, according to Settings > About.
  7. OK, thanks Andre. One day, perhaps Google / Samsung will present an update which doesn't break anything!
  8. This isn't really a fix though, is it? Functionality shouldn't need to be disabled in order to circumvent bugs. I hope that the issue is still being looked into and that Auto Scan can be re-enabled in due course. 🙂
  9. OK, thanks for the advice. I guess that's a workable workaround, but it still seems this issue is to do with PA as it doesn't happen with other music apps. Then again, thinking about it, other apps, such as Samsung's own music app, are now taking several minutes to respond to any changes / additions to music on the SD card, so clearly something has changed with the Android 11 update.
  10. When you say "a while", do you mean a couple of minutes or a couple of hours? I've just turned the Auto-Scan feature off, as you suggested, and have done one reboot, and one full power cycle. Both times PA seems to have launched as it should.
  11. So, here's another couple of things: I wondered if the problem might just be occurring with a full "power off" power cycle rather than just a reboot, so I have tried both three times and the issue occurred with all three full power cycles, and two out of the three restarts. I then went into (PA) Settings > Library > Scanner and disabled USB Disconnection / SD Card Mount, but the problem still remains. I know nothing much about the technical side of these things, but it does seem as though Android 11 may be unmounting the SD card when the phone is shut down, and this may be causing the issue with PA, but that doesn't really explain why it's been fine for the last two or three weeks, and the problem has just now reoccurred.
  12. I can confirm all of the above. I would also add that this doesn't happen every time, and this is in fact the first time it's happened since the last time I posted when the issues seemed to have been resolved.
  13. Yep, happened again to me this morning after a power cycle. Didn't start PA till later and all data had to be rescanned. Pretty sure this is a problem with PA and not Android as other music apps are working fine, and unaffected by this issue.
  14. No, but what I did do was restrict the scanner to the one Music folder on my SD card (previously the card was allowed at root) and I've since rebooted the phone twice and the issue seems to have resolved. PA now opens with all music intact and the playlist position is saved. Just keeping fingers crossed now. 🤞
  15. Had the same update this morning on my S10+, and the PA issue still remains for me. I didn't actually start PA until this evening, so it's had all day to locate the SD card, but I received the "nothing seems to be here" error, followed by a rescan, upon which everything was OK, but once again I'd lost my place in my shuffle playlist, which is quite annoying.
