    Well, I just completed a system reset and my first test at scheduled recording was successful!

    I have a few set up for tomorrow.

    No shiz? So it takes you to a menu that gives an option to clear the cache without deleting anything in memory? The office I'm working in doesn't have wi fi, so I'd hate to lose my replays before Friday night.

    When you say system reset, there are 2 options- did you select:

    Reset all settings (when you select this, it tells you that only your Radio Replays will be deleted and not 'My Recorded Shows' or 'My Recorded Channels')

    Delete all content (deletes all recorded content)

    or both and in what order?

    As far as I remember, Yes. I will test it on mine in a bit to make sure, though. I know I've done this at least twice before adn don't recall losing my replays, favorites, recorded shows, and settings. It just clears other cache settings apperently, similar to wiping the dalvik cache on a phone, which basically means the first boot takes a little longer while it loads stuff into memory, and rebulds app data. I assume this is similar on the lynx.

    Groovy. Thanks Grup. It could be a handy thing to know.

    Just to confirm. I booted my Lynx in recovery mode (Holding the volume down button while powering it on) Once in android recovery, I selected "wipe cache partition". I did this, restarted my Lynx, and did not lose any recordings. There is a seperate option in recovery for wiping recording partition, and do a full reset/erase.

    I was just having a few issues with audio cutting out and the Lynx kept freezing and being laggy when navigating menus. It kept locking up when I switched screens, and only displayed a blue solid background for a minute or two. It sometimes returns back to the now playing screen, but sometimes it also boots me out of wifi mode and stops playbacks, and restarts the stream, logging in, etc. I did the cache wipe to see if this corrects anything. Not sure if it has anything to do with it, but it is wotth a try. It's worth noting My Lynx was used heavily today, It recorded the Stern show this morning, I then putit in sleep mode, docked it, and it recorded A few shows today While I was at work. It remained on in Sat mode all day since it does not put itself back to sleep or turn the screen off after or during a recording. (which is both good and bad...it racked up 18 hours of replay content for me), so I chalk up laggyness to it being on all day, perhaps. We will see if this wipe helped. Usually a simple reboot also helps, too.

    Also, I could have sworn Radio replays had a limit per channel, something like 8 or 10 hours? I only noticed it follow this rule prior to the very first update I got with my Lynx (the one featuring On demand and longer channel buffer times).Now It records upwards to 20 or more hours of replays per channel. I currently have 82 hours of replays, it says "Data:386MB, Recordings:864MB

    Anyone know the official ruling on this? the feature list says 200 hours of content can be used for replays, But I thought there was a per channel limit?

    Good stuff! Thanks. I'll give it a try.
    Right now, I think I have 120 hours of replays stored.

    Volume up is the blank screen

    I pressed volume down & then power on for about 4 seconds and got this screen:

    Android system recovery <3e>

    Android system recovery utility

    reboot system now
    apply sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache portion
    wipe recording portion
    run e2fsk tool

    yup, this is standard android recovery. from here, id like to install a different recovery (2e instead of 3e) so i can install unsigned updates and roms, like a stock or custom android OS.

    Just did a scheduled recording and it worked :bigthumbup:

    Last night I did a 1)Reset all settings & 2)wipe cache portion. Everything is working quicker so far and will keep a close eye on it for a few days.

    Even though this seems to have fixed it, we should not have to perform these actions. In order for this unit to function at 100%, SXM is going to have to do a regulary scheduled monthly update IMO.

    Grüpsaar - can you explain in detail all the above functions?

    Update:
    My scheduled recording kicked off this morning with no issues.
    And since the reset I am no longer having an issue with the brightness controls for the screen.

    I selected reset all setting to set everything back to default.
    Before I did that I wrote down my presets, so it wasn't too difficult to get it back to the way it was.

    I did the clear cache this morning. So far (knock on wood) I haven't had the skipping issue.

    I wonder if the last update was missing a command that told the radio to clear the cache and whatnot when it rebooted after the install.

    I saw there was a post in this thread, and thought they still didn't have this fixed yet. Glad it's all good! I should boot mine up to double check.

    I know that this is an old post, but did anyone ever select the wipe data/factory reset option? I am afraid to hit that one in case it renders the Lynx inoperable. I have performed the others, but when I run e2fsk checks, I have errors on my cache and settings partitions. I would like to try this.

    I thought someone had done it, but don't see a post with a quick browse.
    It should work, but like you, I get a little nervous about those things.
    I don't think I've cleared my cache since the last time I posted about doing it in this thread.

    I found the post today in this thread- LYNX - Android Screens | Digital Radio Central from sordadead. This indicates that the Lynx no longer worked after he selected that option.
    I called technical support again this morning and after some troubleshooting, I have found out that I am under warranty, so they are sending me a replacement device.
    Once I receive the new one and get it operational, I'll try to give this a shot to see what happens and report back.

    Ok, I did the wipe data/factory reset option and it did not render the device useless. It just did a normal factory reset and then the device booted up. It did not make the wifi come back on though...
