Hi as you tagged me let me share my thoughts about this issue:
It is not possible to achive the set-up as it used to be with Mod V4. There is no support in this thread about this problem and probably also no will by the author to correct this problem , if its even possible to correct bc it might have to do something with the original chinese rom on which mod V5 is built on.
I gave up to discuss or find a solution for this problem due to the menitoned lack of support in this thread and lack of development in this regard
I had some problems with the "Restart app/music player after sleep" option as quite often even then i wouldnt have sound, and it would close all my open players (youtube music and spotify mostly) and only open the one used before sleep, and keep the other one closed which i then have to manually restart, but opens up the navi app used before sleep which I didnt need.
So i would recommend to use BootControl app by Lukasz Jaksan from play store. set it up to restart the apps you want to restart after wake up and cold boot and forget about the mod v5 menu, not worth it.
My BootControl set-up below:
delay: 4 sec
delay: 3 sec
car launcher (car laucher can automatically start the music of the player used before sleep)
once you download the app the above will make sense
i also have a macrodroid script which can automatically start the music playback if you swithc to spotify or youtube music ( you dont have to press play, only the icon on the home screen and music will start playing) but i can share it only later as i dont have it saved on this current device
Yes, I understood the issue as I'm having the same problem, but there looked to be a lot of confusion as to what the issue was. The issue seems to be very strange! I did some testing last night and if you pause the track after wake, wait 5 seconds, then press play, the sound will come through normally again on my unit.
I'm going to try going back to v4 (if that's even possible). That had a bug with the wifi turning off after long sleep, but that's easy enough to fix with a trigger in macrodroid
