Come on guys, give us some screenshots, opinions or something! Everyone's been begging for this for 2 months and now that it's here, this thread went silent :bitingnails:

Reinstalled.

2.5.0.87

I never figured out how to take screenshots off my Razr.
But the cool thing I see right off the bat, is that it remembers my personalized settings from the web version and automatically loads them in the Droid version.

And how the hell did Droid get something before Apple? The earth just shifted off it's axis a little bit......

I'll load it on my tablet next and see if I can post a screenshot.

On your phone, try holding down the volume down button and tap the power button

OK, has anyone brought-up the fact that selecting the MySXM option for a channel has one going in blind? In other words, one loses the feature that allows you to see what's playing on a channel before selecting it. It's like the old game show Let's Make a Deal - "OK, Jim, you can stick with that Tom Petty song, or you can go with what's behind the curtain". It might be a deep Steely Dan classic (cool!), or it could be one of those godawful Lyle Lovett tunes!

With the additional annoyance that it takes about 5 seconds to start playing the mystery MySXM song, it becomes much more of a gamble than just sticking to the songs that are being shown on the display.

Good to see some feedback...

It's been too quiet in here since the Android release.

Awful quiet in the music forums, too- I put a lot of time into it to no avail :bluemad:


scotchandcigar be aware the MySXM service is totally separate from the live feed.

At least in the browser side (damn iOS) I haven't used it much. I prefer seeing my favorite channels and switching around when I see a song I like.

You are correct sir. I get why they don't have the preview for each of our customized channels. Buffering all of those channels could be a big data hog.

It's the 5 or 6 second delay between picking the MySXM and it starting that I hope they can improve on.

The app remembered my settings from the web, but how do I get to where I can change them?

Also, this badly needs a like/dislike function. I really want to have a way to ban George Thorogood from Classic Rewind.

Select the icon just to the left of the MyControl icon... the four white boxes icon.
The first option in there is Customize.

I agree about like/dislike!

Still hoping for a MySXM setting for Radio Classics between (Comedy, SCIFI, drama, crime, etc...)- sending an email to Greg Bell to suggest.

Yes, that's a somewhat mysterious icon- It's called the Action Menu- "the four squares in a square" as I call them.

I'd get rid of Van Halen (most) and Genesis.

Agreed, but I'd ban Morrissey if given the option.

If you have fat fingers, you can also long-press the channel logo at the top left of the screen.

For Me U2 would get the axe on 1st Wave and also would like to see possible option to play only 1 hit wonders- (Probably won't happen, but a nice wish anyway) :D
