    Did you do an account sync before you uninstalled the app?
    Yep.

    Yep.
    Ok, I think I figured out what's going on. First there was another setting I needed to enable and second the documentation neglected to mention certain restrictions that Squeeze Control happen to run into. I've got it fixed now and backup will work in the next update.

    BTW, Syncing the Google account doesn't force a backup. You can force a backup with the developer tools when the device is connected to the computer, but I don't think there's anyway to force a backup from the device itself.

    Gotcha.

    I didn't think so, but figured it couldn't hurt

    Backing up Squeeze Control via the developer tools/ADB (I use Helium by ClockworkMod to automate that) has never worked for me -- tells me that Squeeze Control has disallowed backup of application data. This may perhaps be what you're fixing.

    Thanks as always.

    Yes, it's a flag in the application definition called allowBackup that I had set to false. That only allows the backup, you still need a little bit more code to actually do the cloud sync.

    The other problem was that the restore doesn't happen until after a certain point in the application's life cycle, but I was accessing the preferences before that point, which cause the restore to fail.

    To force a sync, you can use the adb tools to issue this command:
    adb shell bmgr run

    Just tried with the new version -- after uninstalling and reinstalling the app, my preferences were indeed restored.

    I'm using SC for a while and it is a very good app for LMS. But I still have an issue (also with the latest version). I am using the LMS 7.9 and I ripped a CD-Box containing 7 CDs. In the LMS setup I am using the option that all the 7 CDs are treated like one CD in the GUI. Normally when I select one title, SC asks me if I want to play the title now or sort at the end of the playlist and so on. But I found out that if there are more than 44 titles, than SC functioned not correctly. So if I for instance select title 45, SC don't ask me if I want to play the title now or sort to the end of the playlist.
    I think there is a little bug in the app. When I am using the LMS GUI, than it works.

    7.9 is a developmental branch which in commercial software would be considered beta software. Since beta software is constantly changing, I do not support them or guarantee compatibility with them (it's like trying to hit a moving target).

    That said, from what you describe, it actually sounds like a it could be problem with LMS. The menus you see in Squeeze Control are generated and sent to the app by the server. If part of the menu works, then it could be that the server is not generating the rest of the menu correctly.

    Squeeze Control accesses LMS through a different pathway than the web GUI, so just because something works in the web GUI does not mean that its not broken for remote apps like Squeeze Control.

    It it also possible that LMS is working correctly but they made changes that are not completely compatible with Squeeze Control. Since 7.9 is still in development things are still changing and there's no point for me to make Squeeze Control compatible with it until it is stable.

    Hello,
    I definitely look for a squeezebox controler that would allow me to move from room to room and have the music follow me. Some kind of ibeacon (for android) feature coupled with a "follow me" in app option would be great. I don't think, this exists already. But at least, is your app able to select a song, then move from one room to another and with a simple touch make this song sync to the new room and pause it in the old room ? I have already tested 4 other apps and all of them start from, first, choose the player to, second, choose the song. None starts from, first, choose the song to, second, choose the player. And it's quite boring when you move from one room to another and you do the whole search for your song again. If your app does this, I buy it. Thanks for your reply.

    No in Squeeze Control you still need to select the player first, but that is because of how the Squeezebox system works. When a controller connects to a server, it cannot find out what music is available unless a player is chosen.

    But at least, is your app able to select a song, then move from one room to another and with a simple touch make this song sync to the new room and pause it in the old room ?
    There is a plugin for the server called "Switch Player" by Triode that will allow you to do this and it should work with most controllers.

    A question or suggestion...
    Is it possible to implement a function that will cause the LMS to scan the directories for new files?

    I'll put a button in Preferences > Servers to do this in the next update, but it will only be a full library rescan. LMS doesn't expose a command to remote control apps to just scan for new files.

    Ok the latest version has the rescan button, but the description in Preferences is wrong. It turns out that the command I'm sending is actually triggering a new/changed music scan and NOT a full rescan. The documentation in LMS wasn't very clear about this.

    SqueezeControl is the best Squeezebox Controller!
    But I miss the sorting and modification of the favorites!
    Is it possible to integrate this function?
    11-13-2014 05:15 AM
  16. wayne@angrygoat's Avatar
    I assume you mean reordering, not sorting? I'll look into it.
    11-13-2014 03:06 PM
  17. VolkerOne's Avatar
    Yes! I mean "Reorder" as in "Edit Home Menu"!
    It would be nice if you could also move the favorites in the "Favorites Menu" and could create a sub-menu in the "Favorites Menu".

    I appreciate SQ very much. Thanks for the good work.

    My dream: browse Albums rather than Artists after selecting a genre. For classical music and my way of tagging, this would make sense.

    Is there a way to do that? Will there be one in the future?

    Squeeze Control just shows the menus that the server gives it. Changing the progression order of the menus will have to been done on the server. You should ask this question in the Squeezebox forums: Squeezebox : Community : Forums

    Thaks for your answer, Wayne.

    Inbetween, I have discovered that 'browsing all albums' just appears as the last artist in the artist's list. That's ok for me.

    Hello,

    I have purchased and have been using Squeeze Control for some time. All of a sudden when starting it up it shows it is doing a licence check and yields the message "Application not licensed" and invites me to repurchase it. However it shows as being already purchased in the play store, which it is. As far as I know I have not made any relevant changes to my phone.

    I'm wondering if I can get some advice on this please. I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 phone running Android version 4.3.

    Thank you and regards,

    Jeff

    Squeeze Control checks it's licensing status with the Play Store app every time it starts up. For some reason your Play Store app wasn't able to update it's licensing cache the last time it tried, probably because you did not have an Internet connection at that time. The Play Store automatically updates it's cache every few days.

    You can also force the Play Store to update it's licensing cache by deleting it's data in it's app info page inside android's settings or you can try rebooting the device. The next time you start Play Store it should update it's licensing cache, as long as you are connected to the Internet.

    Dear Angrygoat Team,
    Thanks, Squeeze Control is great in many ways! I especially love the widget, the controls on the lockscreen and Android Wear support.
    I have one wish about volume control:
    On my devices, the phone's hardware volume buttons and the Android Wear app volume buttons make only +1 and -1 volume steps. I suggest they should have the same Volume Step Size as defined in the settings.

    Thanks!
