    Android Logitech Squeezebox Controller broken!!!

    Logitech was dim witted enough to release it's Android Squeezebox Controller just before Android 2.3 gingerbread was released - and failed to check it worked; it doesn't, it's broken!

    The screen scrolling is horribly broken.

    Is there any chance Logitech might fix this any time soon?

    It's not Gingerbread, it's htc's Gingerbread only.

    Hmm, so where's the breakage I guess is the next question... HTC or squeezebox?

    Thanks for your reports. I updated my HTC Desire yesterday (no OTA update there..) and was able to identify the issue. I have a working version here, which I'd like to test some more before I release it (changes had some negative side-effects). If you're willing to test before we release it, please subscribe to above bug report. I'll try to make a pre-release version available for testing in the next few days.

    AFAICT it's a SB issue on HTC devices only ;-). HTC phones have always been problematic, but the 2.3 update obviously broke the workarounds once again...

    Fixed build for HTC available for testing

    I've created a new 1.1.2 build of the SB Controller App for Android. It should fix the issue HTC users have been seeing recently. Before we release it I'd like as many users as possible to test it, as the underlying library has changed considerably.

    You'll find the apk file together with some installation information attached to this bug report:

    Please give it a try and report back in the bug report. Thanks!

    hi mherger

    Many thanks for response and your efforts. I'll give this a run in the next 24 hours and report back my experience.

    (And re the bug report, yes I can confirm it's an htc phone: Desire S.)

    Morgan.

    Unhappy Android HTC Squeezebox Controller Fix

    More than 2 months ago discussion was held about the scrolling issue with HTC phones and the Squeezebox Controller. An engineer stated that a fix had been made and should be released soon. Where is the fix? I love my Squeezebox, but would like the use of the Android controller.

    Please get the fix done and out here where it can be useful.
