@sim1964 , @royalhawk2002, @IG_Vasilich I'll need raw recordings of all the 3 issues.
Sim, what you attached above are not raw recordings, but only audio recordings in aac format.

raw recordings are done using this procedure:
1. Enable Developer Menu: tap 7x on Settings->Info->Version , then go back, a new menu item appeared "Developer options" at the very bottom
2. Enable OMRI raw recording (you don't need to activate verbose logging)
2. Enable OMRI Mode
3. Close DAB-Z (raw recording enable/disable requires a restart of DAB-Z)
4. Reopen DAB-Z
... reproduce the issue ...
6. Go to DAB-Z Settings and disable OMRI raw recording. Restart DAB-Z again.

Afterwards, files with ending .raw exist in /DAB/rec/ folder
Download them all from the head unit, zip them and send to me.
Appologies for that, could you take a look at this one.

Sim

Thanks @sim1964 : Question: With version 1.8.96 (current public version), was the behavior any better?
My test using your recording of BBC Radio 4 results in: No, it was stuttering in 1.8.96 also. True?
I can't say for certain but I think it was 1.8.97

I can't say for certain but I think it was 1.8.97 that was stutter free, I think 1 may have skipped past 1.8.96.

Just to have confirmation that you reached the recording on https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/15Vq25c95anskEqfzSgZq0A1h8ThfQVdv
Thanks

Mine is worse than before. Hardly any of the stations work.

1. "hr Radio" ensemble is working again, without stuttering. Thanks!
2. I am not sure whether it has worked before, and i haven't tested it with several tools, but now i see following fault:
In launcher i use (CarLauncher) there is a possibility to get current player and try to control it. So i can press 3 buttons: "prev", "next" and "play/pause". it works for music players (tested on AIMP and JetAudio). But for DAB-Z the "play/pause" button does the same as "prev" button ("prev" and "next" buttons work with DAB-Z as intended).
I can pause/play DAB from its notification bar, and after pausing it the first press of "play/payse" button from launcher works (DAB starts playing). But after that this "play/pause" launcher button behaves as "prev".
Can you, pls, check it in DAB-Z side?
If you want, i can test it also with other tools (macrodroid/tasker/whatever else allowing me to send intents or media events).

Will the Dension dbu-8501-4 DAB adapter work with this app? I installed a Eonon head unit with Android 10 in my 2010 VW Touran but I am struggling to connect my Dension adapter. Anyone got any ideas? When I connect the USB it says the drive is corrupt and wants to format the drive..
