    Not like me... Last time I touched a beaker was in 1983. Was directing all those guys sniffing the vapors after that. I retired (very young) and left the corporate rat race quite some time ago.

    media player

    I apologize in advance if this topic has been discussed. I only read about the first half of the posts here. I am experiencing problems with the media player using .148 v5. When i use shuffle songs, the first song plays as expected but then the volume drops to nearly nothing on the next song. If i press pause then play again, the volume is restored. this happens about 80% of the time. Any tips?

    Theme Compatibility - no issue with Gemblock Today Plus iBerry
    Lock - works as it should
    Bluetooth - Tested Bluetooth on both my headset and the car handsfree---working perfectly/no volume issues on calls.
    Media files - No issues on Music, Video, Ringtones, Pictures - load fast...excellent swipe speed to next picture in full screen/landscape.
    Voice Notes - Don't Use, shrunk it out on installatio
    n

    24 HOUR REPORT - No changes from above.
    Memory management (holding ~38MB) - excellent
    Battery (73% remaining after 24 hours-light use) - excellent
    Event Log - no errors reported
    Signal Strength -80dBm/1XEV and steady during entire period
    No Resets (intentional or spontaneous) since initial battery pulls


    36 HOUR REPORT - No changes from above.
    Memory management 41 MB (ranging 37-41 throughout test period/recovers nicely with use of apps)
    Battery (50% remaining after 36 hours -light use) - excellent
    Event Log - No reported errors
    Signal Strength -80dBm/1XEV and holding.
    No Resets (intentional or spontaneous) since initial battery pulls


    58 HOUR REPORT - No changes from above.
    Memory management - 39 MB (continues to range 37MB-41MB throughout test period/recovers nicely with use of apps)
    Battery - (13% remaining - light use). End Battery Test - recharging
    Event Log - No reported errors
    Signal Strength -80dBm/1XEV and holding.
    No Resets (intentional or spontaneous) since initial battery pulls
    OTA Downloading - no issues downloading from various sites.

    RE:POST #483/RELLIMS; Emailed this link: http://www.indyitservices.com/bb_the...an_DK_Blue.jad for theme to my storm and downloaded OTA without issue.
    NOTE:
    Immediate impact of downloading additional theme was to lower free device memory ~2MB without negative consequences. I will leave this on device because I do not want to intentionally reset (reqired to complete deletion) during this test. Will continue to monitor memory management...Device now contains stock Zen theme (inactive), Gemblock iberry Today Plus (active since test initiation) and Rellims Theme (inactive).

    65 Hour Interim Finding
    Since loading 3rd theme, memory now holding ~33MB. No change in apps or other parameters. Memory ranging from 28MB -35MB but still demonstrating ability to recover when apps are "exercised". Good indicator that additional themes should not be on device if not absolutely required but device still running as stated in above reports.

    72 HOUR FINAL REPORT - TERMINATING TEST
    Addition of third theme coincided with significant memory reduction...now at 20MB. HOWEVER, system still behaves as it has throughout the test period. Don't know if it's the particular theme per se or just that there are now three themes on the device.

    CONCLUSION:
    1. .148 appears reasonably robust, stable, fast. No errors encountered during entire test period.
    2. .148 appears slightly better than .132 in it's memory management, battery use and video camera functions
    3. Will delete third theme, reset device and report if memory failure is due to third theme or not.
    4. Until the third theme was added, .148 performed very well regarding memory management and all other parameters. Error free function was the rule throughout the test period even when memory was challenged by third theme addition.
    5. Unnecessary themes should be deleted from your device whenever possible.
    6. .148 is worthy of your serious consideration. I find it to be among the best of the 16 OS which have resided on this device. Your results, unfortunately, may vary. Good Luck!

    reposting here with additions...TEST TERMINATED

    Thanks. Wish I hadn't tested that reported OTA download issue. Winding up with that additionl theme forced me to end the test sooner than I wanted. I seriously think the memory degredation was related to the theme...not the OS. But, just rebooted without that added theme and will watch it for the next three days.

    I would tend to agree with you on that. I find that my phone suffers greatly if I add more than one 3rd party theme

    Has anybody elas experienced any issues with the media player or am I doing something wrong or do I need to adjust a setting somewhere? Here's the problem - I go to media player, music, shuffle songs. First song plays. After first song is over, next song plays but has no volume. By pressing Pause then Play, volume is restored. Song ends, next song plays again with no volume. Same procedure over and over. This does not make my storm a very good mp3 player like it is supposed to be. Do I need to re-install the OS? Is there anybody on this forum that can help me or give me a suggestion? Do i need to be on another forum?

    Problem with Plazmic 4.7 Today calendar. Tapping the calendar icon on any of the 3 themes that I have loaded just displays the text "Calendar". It does not show upcoming calendar events.

    On the other hand, unread Messages are displayed as one would expect.

    You are in the RIGHT place and we can definitely help you Although, I have not personally had that issue, I would suggest trying the following:

    1. Back up your phone AND 3rd party apps
    2. Wipe your phone with JL Cmder
    3. Reinstall the OS
    4. Restore your phone

    For steps to do these, please check out the link to the full guide that's in my signature. Good luck and let us know how all goes

    Does it still do this after a battery pull? I get this sometimes with meterberry, especially after deleting an application and a battery pull usually fixes it ... also do you have the new facebook app installed?

    Mega I do believe there is a fix for this if I remember right there had been a solution I will see if I can find it.

    BG what program do you use for your calendar? I have run into this before using Google sync. What I had to do is delete and re install sync and that fixed the problem. Let me know

    Mega try this and see if it works Download and install Shrink A OS and run that program. Click the .148 QL fix (if I am reading a post correctly) that will install media files as well that should fix your issue. Let us know

    The Gemblock iberry Today Plus theme (on my device) is a Plazmic 4.7 based theme as far as I know and the calendar displays upcoming events and messages on the Today screen properly while running OS .148.

    Bm is correct, that might fix it. If you want the specific .cod file, it is net_rim_media You can download it HERE. It is in the Quicklaunch_Fix_148 zip. You can use Crackutil to overwrite it. Again, I'm not sure this will correct you problem, but its worth a shot. If you do try it, please post back with your findings.
