just bought xialive from play store and wanted to ask how can I order my favorite station the way I like them. I've already tried to order them in the backup.xialive xml file, but it did not work. Changeing the name of the station by adding a prefix number did not work either.
Thanks for any help.
I just wanted to alert you to a situation I face fairly frequently with XiiaLive on my HTC One running android version 4.4.2. This situation occurs when I am in a weak signal area of my home, which unfortunately is where I hook my phone up to my living room stereo.
Often, the Wi-Fi signal strength shown in the status bar will be two, maybe three arcs, but definitely below full strength. When I use XiiaLive to connect to a favorite Internet radio station, a "failed to connect" condition is fairly likely. When this happens, and even if the signal strength increases, maybe because I move out of the way a little bit or hold the device in a different position, XiiaLive will never recover from this condition and connect to the stream.
I can, however, switch Wi-Fi off, in which case XiiaLive immediately connects via the mobile network, and then turn Wi-Fi on again, stop the stream in XiiaLive, and then restart it. At that point, the stream is properly connected via Wi-Fi, and it's all good.
I hope with this information you might be able to locate something in the code that is preventing a successful retry to connect to a stream under marginal Wi-Fi signal strength.
I have two other quick questions that this has brought to mind.
When I switch off Wi-Fi and XiiaLive connects to the mobile network, will it ever automatically reconnect to Wi-Fi when it becomes available again, or once connected to the mobile network, is the app locked onto the mobile network and unable to switch back to Wi-Fi?
And finally, on the stream graph at the bottom of the app, when the buffer index markers are red, does this indicate that the app is using the mobile network? Usually when on Wi-Fi those markers are white, and I only see red when I'm on the mobile network. Just wanted to verify that red means I'm on the mobile network.
Thanks guys! As always, XiiaLive is my go-to app for Internet radio. There's no better app out there.

About your other questions:
1. XiiaLive will not affect how the phone functions. So the general case is that the device automatically connects to WiFi when WiFi is enabled and it finds a WiFi connection which has already connected to. So the answer is yes from mobile network to WiFi should be automatic.
2. The red markers simply shows you that a disconnection happened and the stream engine recovered. Kinda shows you that we did something awesome. :P Here is a bit more info about the seekbar.
I was wondering what's the maximum buffer size on XiiaLive. It says you can increase it in the "pro" version, but I'm wondering what's the maximum size for it. Can i make it 10 minutes? Cool feature would be to be able to schedule start time (for example start buffering 10 minutes on workdays at 7am or similar, so when you drive to work, you won't have any buffering during whole trip).
The current maximum buffer size is 10 seconds for devices running Android 2.2 and 30 seconds older Android versions. Yes, its definitely not big enough! :( So, we do have plans to make it bigger maybe up to 60 seconds. Besides that, we actually are thinking of some new idea, that I can't disclose now, that will most certainly resolve your issues... :)
XiiaLive v2.1.8 now supports a larger buffer! :)
