Alarm fails to schedule in Beta version

John Frazer 8 years ago updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 8 years ago 2
I am not able to set an alarm in XiiaLive Beta.

I downloaded the app from Google play.
I restore my existing play list from released(paid) version.
I then went to settings, Alarms.
+Add Alarm
changed the time to a couple of hours in the future.
Selected a Station from my play list.
Pressed save.

Error message: Alarm failed to be scheduled!

This is a on an XPERIA X10i v2.3.3 with standard SEMC ROM.

I have now rooted the phone, but the out come is the same as it was on the standard non-rooted version.

Other features in the beta version work OK...that I've looked at.

We had some issues with the directory but the latest update resolved some issues. Searching Howard will find the station you are looking for. Thanks!

Clear Channel Radios

Rob Prescott 9 years ago updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 9 years ago 0
Is it possible to add clear channel radio stations to the player i.e. like star 101.3 wild 94.9 etc...

I am currently using iheartradio in addition and would like to uninstall the crappy app.
Jona (Lead Developer) 9 years ago

Yes you can actually add it to your favorites by going to this website from your phone and search for a station:

Once you hit play a popup will come up asking which player you want to use. Pick XiiaLive and then add it to your favorites so that you don't have to go to the website every time.


Widget text color options

Denvernate 7 years ago updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago 0

I've been hoping you'd add this for a couple years now, but it's still not available.  Can you add an option to change the text color in the widget from blue to white?  It's so hard to read the text in the widget, especially when in a car dock driving around in sunlight.  The black background/dark blue text is not enough contrast to make it easy to read.  Other than that, I really like this app!

Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago
Thanks for your feedback! Yes, widgets are not the best at the moment. We will review them and improve them sometime beginning of next year. They are do for an extreme makeover we just haven't had enough time to work on them.

RTSP & MMS Protocols?

TurboNed 9 years ago updated by Giancarlo 5 years ago 6
Can you tell us when RTSP & MMS protocols will be available through XiiaLive application for Android Market, please?
Jona (Lead Developer) 9 years ago

We currently have something working but it's very very beta... Hopefully we can release beta support at ends of January. Hopefully sooner. Do you happen to have an RTSP url we can use for testing?

Update 05/18/11:

v2.1.8 now supports mms and mmsh.  Not sure if RTSP... you could give it a try.

Jona (Lead Developer) 9 years ago
Hi thanks for your request! Well as of now we don't have any plans to go to Windows phones since we don't have too many resources... Maybe in the near future...

how to add widget to screen?

pit4 9 years ago updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 8 years ago 4
some days ago my xiialive widget crashed. after removing it it want to add it again but it is not in the list

any ideas?
Jona (Lead Developer) 8 years ago
Hello, most likely you have moved the application to the SD card. Once you do that the widget will not be visible. This is not a bug but a design flaw in Android OS.

ASX BBC Radio stopped working with "Unexpected error"

nicojx 9 years ago updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 9 years ago 0

I've been using XiiaPlayer Lite for some time to listen to BBC Radio 4 on the URL http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/wm_asx/aod/radio4.asx.

Since about three weeks I can't get the stream to work. Any attempt to play results in immediate and repeated "Unexpected error". Any idea what to do?
Jona (Lead Developer) 9 years ago
The stream might have been down.  I just tested and it is working properly.  Please try again and if you are having issue.  If you still have an issue, please reproduce the issue and collect the logs. The logs can help us see what is going on.

To collect the logs is fairly easy:

Track Update Stopped

Christopher Faulkner 5 years ago updated by Ralph 4 years ago 1
  1. Sony Xperia Z2
  2. Android 5.0.2
  3. For some reason XiiaLive has stopped giving me track updates in the past week or so. I find this useful because it allows me to pause the player and skip between tracks on the radio using the blue marks on the streaming schedule. At the moment, none of those are showing for either of the main stations -Team Rock Radio and Planet Rock UK - I use having done so previously.
  4. To be able to see the blue lines that mark tracks beginning.
  5. It simply doesn't happy at the moment.
I don't know whether this is a bug or a problem with the stations. Any help would be excellent.
