player resets when the phone goes to sleep mode...

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Sorry for asking so many questions...but I ran into a problem now that every time my phone goes to sleep, the program would shut down and when I try to get back to the music which got cut off because I had to pause the music for whatever the reason, it is no long under the "pause" mode, it is now gone and the screen is blank... which means I have to rummage through the playlists (this can be bothersome if you have about 6GB worth of music files..) to get back to the song that got interrupted... I got pissed off many times because of this, but then I found a way around of it, just simply rescaning the folders in the setting revived the song that I once had been listening to..

Now, this brought me to another question... I was wondering, is there any way to resume the music that was paused, just like an mp3 player?? Or the default player that comes with HTC DESIRE allowed me to resume whatever the music i was listening to even after a day or two... maybe the mechanism isnt the same, but this would really save me the trouble rescanning my folders every time my phone goes to sleep...if there is no such function, is it possible to add one in your future release?

Thanx!

Thanks for the report.

That generally shouldn't happen unless something kills PowerAMP before it writes its state to the flash, or if it can't write to the flash at all.

The later can be detected by checking if PowerAMP settings are gone/reseted to defaults after phone reboot/PowerAMP process restart.

PowerAMP saves the song when you pause the track, writes this to flash and it will resume the file/position in it next time it's started.

Thank you for your reply. could you then please tell me what should be done to prevent this from happening? I uninstalled my task manager because you said something is shutting down the proggy which doesnt solve the problem. i upgraded my phone wt froyo updates would that have anything to do with this :shock: problem? My phone didnt cause that much of problems until i started using htcsync. please help me fix this problem its driving me nuts! now it has gotten worse it would shut down the prog. rescanning wouldnt help anymore.

Do you get this "PowerAMP settings are reset" symptom? Or does your changes to PowerAMP settings are always there?

Thanks.

Thank you. It seems like my other settings are unaffected by this symptom. my eqalizer setting always stays the same. its just the music resume feature that is suffering. also, the player wants to show me folders rather than the playlist, so whenever i go back to the player, it shows the folder buttons on both sides.
