Update info for Mondo Plus
« on: 14:39:31 | 16 August, 2017 »
There's a new firmware update available for the Mondo Plus.  I can vouch for its fixing My Podcasts to allow users to add RSS feeds.  Also, the Android remote is now fixed so it's possible to use it to search by location and genre beyond Antigua, Albania and Australia.  My iOS app still crashes using iOS version 9.3.5.

Here's the skinny:

   "Hi everyone, your radio has a new software available.  See the changes below.

   The way the software upgrade works is:

1)      It will check 1 time a day between 10 and 5pm (local time). And if it sees an update it will download the software in the background but it will not upgrade the radio until you are not playing music after 10 minutes.  So I was wrong above. You can listen to music 7 days a week between 10 and 5pm and you absolutely will get the software… then the radio will go through its ( less than elegant) software update procedure after you have your radio in standby or just not playing and music and on after 10 minutes.

2)      We also have the option to do a force update. What that does is when your radio randomly checks between 10 – 5pm and sees a software it will immediately start downloading then once downloaded it will immediately stop playing and upgrade your radio i.e. it will interfere with your music listening.

     
    However, the auto update mechanism broke in the last version of software (we will fix it in the next release later this week or early next week),  so at this point in time you need to go into the radio setting menu and select firmware update (we do have a way to force the update that we will do to the general population, but I thought I would let you all know that you can just go update your radio now as the force update could look like the radio is crashing to someone not knowing what’s happening, so we will wait a week or so before we do a force update to get everyone on the latest version).

    Version: 146.41 changes:

        Internet Radio: When using our iPhone and Android apps the Country and states were not showing up correctly. You can now search for stations on the app.
        Internet Radio /and Web portal: Implement saving RSS feeds on the web site and new MyStuff folder handling (more on this below)
        Podcasts: Enable prev / next for podcast service
        Podcasts: Fix playing from podcasts search results
        UI: Abbreviate day and month in date string ( longer months aren’t showing up correctly on the display). However, the guys made a mistake when they changed it. We will modify it again in the next release to add the year.
        UI: Rename battery saving menu

            Changed the menu item names:
            1) Power Management to:
                Increase Battery Life
            2) Network Standby Power Mode to:
                Turn Wi-Fi off in Standby

    For those who have a battery in their Mondo+

    The “Increase battery Life’ option will turn your Wi-Fi stick off when you go into standby (only if you have a battery installed). Also when you go into standby you should turn the large select knob to the left to turn the display off as that uses a ton of battery. Note when you turn the radio back on it will not quickly play the last stations like it does normally. It will first have to reconnect to Wi-Fi, so it’s a much slower start up.  If you want the radio to go into a real deep sleep when not using it and not plugged into power you can press and hold the power button for about 5-6 seconds until the display turns off .. then you can leave the M+ not plugged in for many days with very little battery drain.

    New My stuff option on the portal

    We created a new menu tree on the portal. This basic tree implementation will allow us to add the ability ( in a couple weeks) to drag and drop items between folders and for end users to create sub folders (we are still debugging this so had to turn this feature off for this release).

     

    Also you can now click on the add audiosear.ch podcast button on the portal and save a podcast show. Then when you go into your audiosear.ch folder on your radio you will see each show that you saved, then when you click on the show it will come back and show you all the resulting episodes.   We are still working on optimizing this functionality as its not working perfectly on all the different 10’s of thousands of shows but we will fine tune that over the weeks to come.

     

    One item we will be adding shortly too is we will change the icons the radio shows in my stuff. It will show a folder icon if it’s a folder to delineate between folder’s and stations ( this will be very usefull once we turn on the ability to create custom folders).

    In other news

    Spotify

    We were able to fix the final Spotify software bug. So we will redo the Spotify self-test next week (our head of DA and testing has been in Asia) .  Spotify already has our radios so we just need to send them the results later this week then they will schedule a test window for the Mondo+ to go through their internal testing. (probably still 6-8 weeks before approved)

    As a reminder Spotify Connect requires Spotify premium (pay service) .  Also Spotify connect is similar to Chromecast which you can already use to cast Spotify (free or premium). The main differences for Spotify Connect and Chromecast (from my point of view) is that with Spotify connect you can save Spotify playlists and stations to a preset.

    Since use can save Spotify Connect to presets that also means you can use them for alarms.

    You can also skip songs and go back to previous songs but you were able to do that with Chromecast as well already.

    Radionomy

    We continue to review options with Radionomy to get these stations back up."

Further firmware update:

EDIT:  the best news:. They fixed the iOS app!

Hello everyone,

We have just released a New version of software (146.49) with the following changes:

    UI: Moved Equalizer feature off home screen and moved into radio settings and replaced it with the alarm allowing quicker access to modifying all alarms (of course you can still modify 1 alarm when the radio is in standby by pressing the home button).
    UI: Add year to date string on Now playing, standby, and alternative inactive display screens
    UI: Added music note and folder icons for items in your my stuff menu and various locations
    UI: Fix disappearing stop soft key in certain circumstances
    UI: Remove icon when showing "empty" string in empty folder
    UI: Remove unnecessary additional level to select a Firmware Update
    UI: Show New SW version pop up message after successful background update.
    UI: Show folder icon for all folders and new note icon if the selection is a playing item ( podcast,station etc)
    Alarm: Fix various snooze bugs
    Bluetooth: Fixed playback when switching to sleep timer mode
    Defconfig: Fixed black square on screen in upper left hand corner in various situations (mainly after factory reset)
    Firmware Update: Fix silent update mechanism (your radio is not currently upgrading in the background when new software is released. It is supposed to due to our agreement with google. This function is now fixed.)
    Buffering: fixed a buffer bug that caused periodic 1 second audio stopping on networks or stations with congestion.. however, we still have more fixes in this area that we are working on.
    Wi-Fi: When you scan for networks now the network with the strongest signal will be the first selection.
    Stations search: removed the need to select a genre as the last step when doing a search by location
    Web portal: Added ability to modify URL’s/ names for My podcast/ My streams etc.
    Bluetooth: improved reconnect to the last Bluetooth device function
    Remote apps: updated iphone and Android apps : general bug fixes and support for some older operating systems that were not available on the initial release.

To see what is in all past releases please see: https://support.gracedigital.com/hc/en-us.  You can also see the modified manual showing the above and other new features here: https://support.gracedigital.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001382274-Mondo-user-guide

 

That manual shows information about Spotify but we are still not approved yet, so ignore that section but I wanted to get the manual updated for the pending release.

Latest update for Mondo Plus:

9-12-17

Version number is 146.54. Changes:

Alarm: Fix wrong postponed time calculation
Alarm: Clear snoozed alarm if original alarm setting is removed or disabled
Alarm: Clear the repeat value when snoozing alarms
Headset: Fixed audio issues mainly caused if headset were plugged in during power or factory reset.
meta-gracedigital: add init-iw-reg to initialize Wi-Fi regulatory domain (this will fix some rare wi-fi connectivity issues)
Updates to the web portal

Added integration with SHOUTcast and Live365.  So now when you do a station search you can search our database, SHOUTcast or Live365 and save them to the my stations folder.  We will add both of these services into the radio’s music services folder in the coming months.
You can also create custom folders as well as move stations between folders (we don’t support drag and drop so if you want to move an entry to a new folder you will need to select edit.)
 Radionomy update

 Radionomy gave us an official update that they are not allowing internet radios (mondo+) to play their stations, only iTunes and their custom apps.   In the meantime, if you select stations from either SHOUTcast or the Grace station database you will get their annoying messaging indicating the stations won’t play.  However, Radionomy indicted to me that sometime in November they will create the ability for us ( and others of course) to easily decipher which stations in the SHOUTcast directory are Radiononmy, then we can delete them from both SHOUTcast searches as well as searches in the Grace database.

 Pandora update

Pandora officially will not allow us to integrate their service into our radios. They only allow it via Chromecast built-in.  We have not given up but it seems highly unlikely.

 Amazon Music Update

The core software is approved by Amazon. However, we are still a couple months away from them to approve based on their response last week (they are just severely backlogged).

 Spotify connect Update

We finally fixed all our bugs.   Spotify has our radios in their labs and has the special software we made that has Spotify connect on it. We are just waiting to hear back from them.  It’s an automated process so we don’t have anyone I can really talk to… so it’s just a waiting game for them to respond to us.


As a reminder you of course can now use Spotify via Chromecast built-in.  Also when we add Spotify Connect it will not allow a full feature set, Spotify connect is just a subset of their features (Spotify defines the feature set, not us) but will allow the ability to save channels / line ups  etc as presets and to skip and pause stations directly on the radio.  And anything saved on the presets can be used for an alarm.

 Note that Spotify connect requires a paid Spotify premium account.  So if you prefer to only use the free service then you will have to continue to use Spotify via Chromecast built-in as that feature will not go away.

Further update:

Hi all,

 

We are releasing small yet important changes today for those that use the alarm/snooze/sleep timers.

The version number is 146.57. The changes are as follows:

    Alarm: Don't show time bar while playing buzzer
    Alarm: Fix buzzer repeating bug (it sometimes stopped after 20 seconds)
    Alarm: Fix mistake in AM/PM handling when setting alarm at the 12:00am/pm times.
    Snooze: Fix skipping snooze (in some instances the snooze would not snooze…. Not good L)
    Snooze: Added the ability for the snooze to be deactivated. For example if you press snooze and there is 10 minutes left on the timer but you want to get up, just press and hold the snooze timer for 2 seconds and the snooze will be deactivated, and you can now get up and not wake up your spouse 10 minutes later J .
    Timer: Never show less than 1 minute for snooze / sleep timer ( just looks better … it used to show 0 minutes left but the snooze/sleep didn’t go off since we don’t show seconds. So now at less than 1:59 seconds the various timers will show 1 minute and continue to show 1 minute until it reaches 0.  It was too difficult to add seconds.. and not really needed. )

There is one more snooze bug that we found that we hope to get released end of next week.

In other news

·         Spotify is communicating with me now. (I sent them the radios a while ago and they just started testing them this week) They said they will have a response if we pass / fail Spotify connect approval within 10 business days.   Spotify connect requires a premium account. If you have a free Spotify account you will have to use the Chromecast built-in function already in the software.

·         Amazon music: unfortunately, our partner software house is 100% preoccupied with other initiatives (with super huge audio companies, so I get pushed to the back burner L  such as life) so they are unable to integrate Amazon music into our radio this Q4…. They have already written the code, but not ready to release it to us to start testing with Amazon.  I’m really bummed but my hands are tied. I hope I can get them to update the code in Q1 next year.

·         We will be working on integrating SHOUTcast and Live365 into the radio and should have that updated in a few weeks

·         We have a few UPnP / USB bugs that are still out there but as we share the software stack and the bug is in the core (not my branch) we are unable to get those bugs fixed in the near term until the core team addresses the issues, but we have not forgotten about them….

·         The Encore + is currently in Google labs and should be available the 3rd week of November. For anyone who has an Encore, the Encore+ audio sound is leaps and bounds improved … it’s really awesome what our audio guys did … the GUI and feature set, content is the same as Mondo+.  Encore+ will automatically support Spotify connect when it launches as the software is the same software being approved by Spotify right now. 

 

 

 

Regards,

Further update:

"Hello everyone, hope all is well.  We have a made a few more bug fixes as well some enhancements.

 

Version number is 146.63. Changes are:

 

Multi-room audio: While we have always supported multi-room audio via Chromecast built-in we now also support multi-room audio of regular content you find on the radio such as NPR, iHeartRadio, SirisuXM, your my stuff folder etc.   So if you already have or are interested in buying another Mondo+ or the upcoming Encore+ you can play different or the same synchronize audio on multiple radios around your home.  This feature is in the music services folder of the radio. The only option on the radio is to pick another radio on the network that you want to follow to play the same music.

 

On the iPhone/android apps you can create /name groups of radios, ungroup and play music to a group etc. (we do  not currently support multi-room audio for our Bluetooth audio source).

 

Mystuff: Now all items are listed alphabetically on your radio to match our web portal listings.

 

Podcast: Added the ability to pause, and to be able to skip to different podcast episode in a series (this function only works until you turn the radio off. If you turn the radio off then back on you will have to select the series again to be able to skip between episodes within a podcast series).  This works for podcast saved on our web portal to your radio as well as via audiosear.ch podcast.   We are working on adding the ability to fast forward / rewind within a podcast.  That functionality should be added next week. 

 

More alarm/ snooze/sleep timer fixes/optimizations:

·         Alarm: Don't show play control buttons during buzzer playback

·         Alarm: Show message when disabling snooze timer due to exiting standby

·         Alarm: Skip snoozed alarm if user exits Standby

·         Sleep timer: The default sleep timer is automatically set for 10 minutes an you can always change it when the menu pops up. We have now added the ability to adjust the the sleep timer default setting. So you can make it 5,10,20 etc.  You can still change it when you press the sleep timer to anything you want .. this is just a new master default setting.  You can find this setting in the Radio settings menu, then go into the Clock, Alarm/Snooze menu.

 

Iphone/Android APP:

We were able to move the presets out of the Music services folder and moved to the top level of the menu for easier access. We push this listing from the radio to the app so you do not need to upgrade the app. You will see it the next time you open up the app (after the radio upgrades to 146.63).

 

Regards,

 

Greg"

The ability to change the sleep timer default setting does not work.  I'm running the latest update and there is no way to select/change the default setting in the clock/alarm menu.  Only the snooze time default can be changed.  I've tried changing that and then trying to use sleep timer with a station playing and it just defaults back to 0:10.

Not sure if this is the right place to put this, but other changes I'd like to see are:

1) Make the volume range more adjustable over a finer range.  When I listen to my favorite station at night, one volume setting is just too low for me and the next click up is just a bit too loud for my wife.  LOL  Having a wider range of volume settings would be awesome.

2)  When the radio is in standby and the home button is pressed, bring up the actual home screen instead of the alarm setting screen.  As it currently is, that doesn't make any sense.

Thanks!

Got the sleep timer thing figured out.  You could never change it and it was a mistake on Grace's part in the update description above.  Only the default snooze time can be reset, NOT the sleep timer.  Got this from them in an email today that corrected things.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Right after I sent that I realized there was a typo in my software updated email
 
Please change this:
 
·         Sleep timer: The default sleep timer is automatically set for 10 minutes an you can always change it when the menu pops up. We have now added the ability to adjust the sleep timer default setting. So you can make it 5,10,20 etc.  You can still change it when you press the sleep timer to anything you want .. this is just a new master default setting.  You can find this setting in the Radio settings menu, then go into the Clock, Alarm/Snooze menu.
 
 
To:
·         Snooze timer: The default snooze timer is automatically set for 10 minutes an you can always change it when the menu pops up. We have now added the ability to adjust the snooze timer default setting. So you can make it 5,10,20 etc.  You can still change it when you press the snooze timer to anything you want .. this is just a new master default setting.  You can find this setting in the Radio settings menu, then go into the Clock, Alarm/Snooze menu.

Latest update for Mondo+ (and Encore+)

Hi everyone,

 

In the new release today 146.69 we have the following updates:

 

·         Live 365: Added the new Live365 service directly on the radio which has thousands of new radio stations already. You can check it out in the music services folder

·         SHOUTcast: Is now available in the music service folder. According to their web site they now have 72,794 active stations. However, please note that they own radionomy which no longer supports streaming in the US on internet radios. SHOUTcast said they will update their integration so we will only be sent working SHOUTcast stations and delete the radionomy stations. They said it will be done by the end of November (but they moved the date out on my twice already so who knows when it will be updated). Even without the radionomy there are over 50,000 active stations so it’s a nice addition to our radio.   

·         End of Stream message: Certain stations send end of streams messages to our radio then the radio stops playing that stream.  However, it seems that we have been a tad sensitive to those messages so we have now implemented the ability for our radio to restart a radio stream after it gets that message.  We have tested this pretty well but please let me know if you have any stations where you hear any audio segments repeated as this could be a negative by product of this upgrade.  We have not seen it in our labs or homes but as there are so many audio stream formats and variations there certainly could be some fringe cases. 

·         Podcast: Properly store podcast on presets as well as added the ability to fast forward and rewind within a podcast. When you Fwd./Rwd. a track the music will be paused during the function.

·         Volume level: We doubled the number of increments for volume control. This is especially useful for late night / bedtime listening as our previous increments between soft and really soft were not as granular.

·         UPnP/USB: Optimized skipping (back/forward) between tracks as well as ability to Fwd./Rwd. within a track (song). When you Fwd./Rwd. a track the music will be paused during the function. Note: we removed the repeat / shuffle mode buttons from the radio. So if you want to repeat or shuffle you will have to do that within the iPhone/android apps.   We did that as the functionality in the code is the same as the Podcast functionality.

·         Universal remote control: If you like using a universal remote control, attached are the remote control commands to program. I’ve never used a universal remote so I don’t know how to program them, but I assume those that use them, know how to program J

·         Audiosear.ch: On a sad note, at the end of November Audiosear.ch is closing the doors. So that service is no longer offered. We have integrated iTunes in the back end. iTunes has a much larger catalog but not as good of a search function.  I recommend searching on our web site then saving to the radio as its easier to search on the web portal. Also right no searching by category and genre are still pointing to audiosear.ch while the free form input field is now pointing to iTunes.  In 2 weeks the genre and category functions will not work and we will delete those options in the future.  We will also look for future

·         Wi-Fi: Created a security fix for WPA2. For those who don’t know it was a global issue made widely known a couple weeks ago. It wasn’t really an issue for our radios but we added the fix anyway

·         Spotify connect: The developers have fixed all but 1 of the bugs so we still can’t’ start retesting with them. The last one has been difficult to fix so don’t have a time for release yet.

·         Amazon music: Is still on the road map but no forecast of when it will be released. 

 

And last but not least we will be launching the new Encore+ on Kickstarter tomorrow at 6am PST. It will support this new software 146.69, so it will have all the bug fixes and new features and services that we have added to the Mondo+ during the last 9 months J

--  added the ability to fast forward and rewind within a podcast. --

I tried this but so far no luck. Any specific instructions? I tried pressing and holding a few buttons, namely, the one next to the pause button but it didn't seem to do anything; then I tried the one next to it (outer button).

-- Properly store podcast on presets --

Does this mean that if a podcast is playing, you can press and hold one of the preset buttons on the remote and it will start the podcast over (or perhaps pick up where it was paused) whenever you press it?

Thanks.

These buttons that you're pressing;  are you pressing buttons on the remote or on the radio?

Please make sure you have the latest update.  It's possible that you're one behind.  The fast forward, rewind, etc. should show up on the radio.  I don't think that the remote does anything but pauses or skips from episode to episode.

I checked yesterday and there were no firmware updates; the radio downloaded the latest one automatically :-).

Which of the two side buttons do you use, the one next to the center pause button (arrow and line) or the one on the outside (double arrow)?

The  one next to the center pause button (arrow and line) paused the podcast, then started it over again. The one on the outside (double arrow) put up an option to select minutes and seconds. I set it to 7 minutes 10 seconds, then pressed the double arrow fast forward button again. Didn't work.

Any tips appreciated. Thanks.

<< is rewind;  l< is return to start;  >l is advance to end;  >> is fast forward.

For the fast forward, you select the interval (minutes and seconds) that you want the episode to advance to by turning the big knob, then you press the big knob in and it does the trick.

That did it! Thanks for your patience. Really happy about this new feature as I often fall asleep during hour-long podcasts and used to have to start all over to catch up ;-)
