    ok so I do know that due to the amazing OTA from sprint and HTC, that our streaming services such as pandora and slacker pretty much sucks when it comes to listening to it. I have however noticed that when using both slacker and pandora it seems to take quite a bit longer. Usually it loads the whole song in a matter of seconds but now it pretty much streams it live and if you loose sig within a whole second or two it stops. Thus resulting in using more battery. Is this because of the format change or something like that???

    I noticed this also, more with Pandora but Slacker also. Was driving in and out of roaming today, and it didnt finish a whole song for some periods of time. When im at home its never even skipped before, but driving from central AL to FL was terrible. Wasnt doing this to me before :(

    Yes and I normally tether my Evo on my Laptop and use slacker.com but even that seems to only have a 1 to 2 second buffer. So when loading web pages it seems to always have to stop and load more. I'm guessing it's once again part of this amazing android 2.2 stuff going on so hopefully that along with the horrible quality will get fixed. The question is just when will it all get fixed???

    Be patient. There are a few issues. I know at least Pandora is working on now.

    You gotta have some faith in the developers working at some of these companies. Give a bit of time, I suspect you will be rewarded in due time.

    Well I don't think these two issues are related due to the coding change. When I had my motorola droid on Verizon I upgraded to several leaked builds and i still had the slow loading when using slacker or pandora but didn't have the horrible codec issue.

    And you may be right - precisely the reason I snipped your quote at the "listening to it" part.

    On the other hand, we may never know if they're interrelated or coincidental.

    Point is, we need a fix (and I'm questioning if the wmv problems are part of the same slagging).

    I just wanted all of the defendents lined up - for the whole fix, it's going to take Google, then HTC playing with it, then Sprint playing with it. And it's bound to be multidimensional to fix - and then we'll have to deal with the politics of it all.

    If we're going to push for a party, let's invite ALL the responsible characters.
