If you go to top right icon in main screen "jump to track playing" when you swipe back to view the source of the track it should go back to source/album instead it goes to root ?

root/artist/album/track

it should follow this route regardless when you swipe back from play screen

instead you get

root

@Joe Bloggs can you sort out this last bit please

Thank you, Snoopy for these amazing customizations.

Firmware 3.2 Custom

Looks like the Chinese radio stations are still there, but everything else seems to be working!

Yes, it's rather inconvenient moment, but I did it to save yours Favourites radio stations after updating firmware... If you have Chinese stations now, you should to restore default settings from menu.

Crash with latest firmware. When set as ldac high, then connecting jabra 65 (SBC) crashes the r3. Have to manually set it to sbc first.

edit..
r3 has to be set as sbc or it crashes.

Same here, anything but SBC crashes the player as soon as I press play on any audio file (mp3 or FLAC). Probably should have had it set to SBC anyway for my Funcl W1 earbuds, but not good that it just crashes if you don't have the right codec.

Weird problem with 3.2 custom. Every time I switch the player off and on, I have to select a song to start with.
The song I was playing before is not remembered. When I swipe right, I get an empty screen showing "Hiby Music".

I had to reset the player due to the issue with Chinese radio stations mentioned above.

I was used to the last played song continuing from where it was when I switched off (auto switch off with sleep timer usually, but the same goes when I manually switch off).

Which item is selected in the section “Resume play from last”? Track? You want to play tracks from sd card? For me track and position work as it should. May be something wrong with database?

Ah, forgot about that whole setting, which was of course lost during the reset.
Thanks, solved.

Quick question: Why is the L/R balance control greyed out when using the digital output? As someone who relies on a balance control for most playback, this drives me crazy. And limits me to devices with a working Rockbox port when using an external DAC.

I'm not aware of a single DAC on the market with a balance control, so why eliminate such a crucial feature from the transport?

Any chance of remedying this in a future firmware update?
