Tap PSD, then select 'sync to live stream'.

I know, not as intuitive as it could be. It's hard working with the limited screen real estate...

This isn't as much a reply as it is a hijack to say how much I enjoy the new flac option. With my LG V10 plugged into the music machinery here, the difference was profound. Thank you Bill and whoever else worked on this. RP just took a big leap ahead.

If you're not a premium member, get down off your camel and cough up some shekels to support this effort.
I have no other interest other than being a satisfied customer for nigh on 15 years now, and an admirer of the lost art of radio programming. RadioParadise deserves your support.

Seriously guys, you can't write an app that downloads this much data over mobile connection. There has to be some thorough safeguard for that.

I was lucky, since it was beginning of the month, so I'll have save now for the rest of the month, but we have huge overcharges on data tariffs here in Europe, this would have seriously hurt.

The reason seems to be that I played around with the cache a few weeks back. Since it would not download properly, I experimentally set it to "download 12h of music". When I started the app today while on the mobile network, it downloaded 12 hours or 600 megs of RP.

I love RP, so I hope you get this fixed. I'd really like to continue listening.
 
Sorry. As with any app that's capable of large data transfers, you need to be careful when changing settings to allow the use of cell data.

I'd suggest leaving the live stream options set to a minimal cache (< 30 min), and keep the cell bitrate low. Then grab a couple of larger cache blocks (without enabling the 'use cell data' option) for use when you're offline for extended periods.

As for preventing the app from doing large cache downloads via cell data, sometimes that's exactly what some users (I'm one) want to do. I generally have several unused gigs of cell data each month, so I'll sometimes load large cache blocks via cell. Perhaps we could add an additional warning message in those circumstances. I use an app (Xfinity StreamTV) that does that.

Just fixed a server issue. Both the Android & iOS apps were failing when set to the lowest bitrate. Very sorry about that. Should be OK now.

The offline cache has had intermittent issues should be a lot better now.
Sometimes getting shorter blocks can help.

If offline blocks are randomly disappearing that is usually caused by a cache cleaner type app running in the background.

I regularly now (almost daily) lose the cache I download before work to listen to during the day.
Plays fine when I test it immediately after download, and even a few times during the morning, but randomly when I go to play it, the download size has reverted to 0 minutes.
Even though it's set to WiFi only, it seems to be wanting to try downloading again. (The little dirt bins are back to the Pause and Stop buttons like it is busy downloading)
 
Isn't that how it is supposed to work?  If one caches 4 hours, thento prevent unintended usethe last song will be unavailable in 4 hours.  Otherwise, one could load up hours of songs and play them over and over again.

When I add two cache blocks (at about the same time) they both fill okay, but the % downloaded and length ("4 hours 45 mins") exactly track each other.  Are both blocks being filled with the exact same content?  This is using version 3.17.1.gp

I'm also having problems downloading, getting an error message saying offline playlist is not available. I've reinstalled and still getting an error. I have a long flight ahead of me so hoping to get some music!

Any suggestions?

I regularly get "Error - Could not retrieve offline list".  Other times after clicking Add Block, it doesn't respond with anything.  I don't think it ever lets me download over 8 hours. If I'm able to download a block I usually do 7.5 hours or less.  I'm usually trying to download a block before work between 7 and 8 am eastern. Not sure if the servers update then or what. My phone has plenty of space on it.  Reinstalling doesn't work.  I rarely had an issue with the last iteration of the app.

I'm getting the Error cannot download offline list.  I've tried reinstalling the ap.  I have bought and installed an external storage device.  Nothing works.  I can get one 2:28 block and nothing more.  Am I doing something wrong?
