Well, actually I've tried it a few times. When I start the tuner it works perfectly, no problems at all. Then I turn it off (press a screen button and it becomes yellow)
Then I turned off the screen ( phone is in stand by mode) for a minute or two.
Then I turn the phone again and a battery monitor shows 47 mA. Usually it shows only 4-5 mA. I restart the phone and do not use a tuner at all - after stand by mode my phone shows 4-5 mA as usually. That's it.
I've checked this many times already.
P.S. I've just checked the situation with MIUI FM and found the same thing after a tuner is off. The only difference is if I kill MIUI tuner as a task, a current goes to 4-5 mA. And if I kill Spirit FM in a such way the current doesn't change - it's 47mA all the way until I restart a phone.
Thank you for an answer.
Thanks for your reply.
I can't seem to be able to get the recording to start after the first attempt, but I will keep trying as you suggested.
The main thing, which makes this app much better than other FM apps I've tried on my HD2, is the mono audio option works... this makes weaker signals sound sooo much better. Thank you!!
Thank you for your efforts. I have tried it on both my Android phones.
My LG GT540 is working quite well. It is possible to tune into stations, but unfortunately no RDS is seen.
For my HTC Desire I can see the UI, but I cannot tune into any radio station, so I guess it is in test mode.
I am really looking forward to your next releases. Thanks!
Thanks much for your investigation. Can I presume your battery monitor is a hardware DMM/meter ? Or is there some software accessible current meter ? I've never looked into this, but I'm thinking I can cut into a USB cable to insert a DMM and that would give me a better idea of current draw once the battery is full.
Instead of restarting your phone, you might try disabling everything that might use the Broadcom chip. So that's FM off (first perhaps), WiFi off, BT off, and continue turning things off to see if one of those drops the current demand.
I've no hardware instrumentation, just a program called battery monitor widget. It shows battery drain quit well. As for turning off IC circuits - I disabled BT but it's not a cure... a current is the same. As for WiFi - I didn't disable it as I use it everytime.
