Only the internetradio I cannot get to work. Under internetradio, I only see 'firefly mediaserver' listed, not a single internet radiostation. And when I try to play this one, connection is lost. Do I need to configure something? Playing radiostations that have been saved as a preset works fine.
You have to go to radioroku.com and setup a connection between your roku's and this service. On radioroku.com you can select your internet radio favourites, which will then be displayed on the app. I cannot provide any more function atm other than favourites as the api does not allow searching of internet stations.
if only one soundbridge is found, why not immediately connect?
Cannot do this as bonjour is constantly searching network for new services, so guessing when its managed to find all devices is pretty hard, its only 1 click anyway.
if a song is playing, why not immediately go to the remote screen?
This would be bad hci, and many people wouldnt want that (I know I wouldnt). Once you are connected to the device, you are only every one click away from the remote (top right corner)
would it be possible to cache the connection? Just think about this use case: music has been playing for a while and you want to skip a song. now it takes up to 10sec before you'r on the remote screen.
not possible, as every time the connection is lost, the app has to run through the connection setup again (unless im doing things wrong and i've missed somethin in the api)
why not caching the metadata from the musicserver? this would really speed up things. Now it takes about 4sec to load +-500 albums and 30sec to load 4000 songs. (this is using firefly; haven't tried with WMP, but that one should be really slow)
It is difficult to cache lists, but you've given me an idea of how to speed listing up. How would people feel about a sync button on the server list (after you've connected to a device), so first time you use app it downloads all lists, and then afterwards you manually sync lists when you know a change has been made?
would it be possible to wake the server via WOL? would save me a roundtrip upstairs where my PC is ....
As the app communicates directly with your roku and not the server, i cant see how this is possible.
Anyone else noticing frequent disconnections ?
Also I have 4 Soundbridges in the house.
2 radios 1 M1001 and 1 M2000.
The application lists them all, but cannot connect to the M1001 or the M2000, Just get "Failed to connect to device).
I like the app very much, but alas cannot use it because of this.
I am using the application on an iPhone, could this be the problem.
As long as your iPhone is connecting to your wifi connection then this shouldnt cause any problems. Can you try adding the M1001/M2000 manually and see if this solves the problem? Also can you make sure all your devices have firmware 3 or higher on them.
