Strange Behavior/Bug Pandora... AOSP .9.9.1, latest radio,etc..

    I'm writing this message to report what I perceive to be a bug when using Internet Radio apps (Pandora in particular) on my phone. As of recently, I have been using AOSP v.0.9.9.1, which is the latest release. I also have the latest PRL version 60672 and the latest radio baseband 2.42.02.10.29. The problem arises when I'm streaming Pandora and driving around town. I listen to Pandora in my car using a tape adapter and my phone. Anyways, everything will be working fine in one instant and then in the next, a new song will begin playing on whatever station I'm listening to and it will be quite distorted ( slower, choppier, it almost sounds as if it were sampled and played back at a slower frequency). Suddenly my phone becomes unresponsive. I can't unlock it from having the screen timed out. The music just continues to play as if someone had recorded it and then played it back at half speed. The only thing I can do is unplug and replug in the headphone jack. This seems to allow me to at least get the screen to turn back on. Hardware buttons are completely unresponsive. Finally, my phone unlocks and the music stops playing. Then, (this happened on the most recent occasion) Android tells me that Launcher Pro has stopped responding and needs to force close. I might also add that I have the most recent version of Launcher Pro. I sent an error report for this. But it has has happened to me now on multiple occasions and I'm not sure it's a bug with Launcher Pro. On another occasion I think Android told me that Pandora had stopped responding. AOSPmod/CM 6.1 so far are the only ROMs with which I have had problems with Internet Radio applications. Also, I'm not sure if I ever had this issue before flashing the latest radio update. I have no clue what the problem could be. If anyone is using similar settings, I would appreciate any knowledge. It seems to only happen when I'm driving around (within coverage of course). I just want to be able to use my internet radio apps on the go without these problems.

    It also could be a Pandora issue, as I use Sirius XM on the same ROM and have no issues at all, and sometimes run it for hours at a time, so there maybe be something in there SW that is causing the issue with the Roms

    If you are overclocking, I would raise the screen off min frequency higher, like up in the 400's. If you are not overclocking, I would download oc widget or setcpu and set screen off/screen on frequencies. See if that helps;)

    if you are OC'ing - I don't see the real benifits of setting a Screen off Max.
    If the Screen is off....youlikly aren't touching it or doing much....the CPU scales to where it needs.....The whole Profile thing doesn't make sense (maybe the below 20% one).

    I set my main at Min 176 and max at 768 - let the cpu do what it needs when it needs.
    Get EXCELENT Battery life....NO issues with Pandora or TuneIn Radio....

    Hm. Tried the suggestions. Seems like it could be a problem with Pandora... Today, I was listening for about an hour and a half over Wi-Fi while studying and then randomly it just started up. Same problem. Phone became unresponsive. Music still playing but very laggy and choppy. I let it run its course. I didn't mess with it at all. Finally my phone just rebooted itself going back to the AOSP boot screen. I have no ideas...

    I have the same issue has the OP, I think its Pandora, since the latest updates Pandora has gone south for me. Song skipping, force closing, the issue OP describes... Ill prolly give that other App a try ( <<insert name here>> and try to pinpoint the culprit...:mad:

    im using pandora with .9.8 and havnt seen any issues. I would be more inclined to believe its pandora, rather than aosp. not using any overclocking right now, just whatever stock does for me, but none the less, its smooth

    Go into the Pandora Preferences menu and turn OFF Auto-Lock. This will prevent your screen from turning off while actively playing songs and has resolved similar symptoms on my phone.

    I am running ASOP over-clocked with different settings for screen off and on. It appears to me that the CPU frequency drops when the screen goes off and the phone starts coughing blood instead of ramping speed back up when I go to turn the screen back on.

    Keeping screen on, keeps my cpu at 710MHz. I wouldn't do this without being plugged in, but I only listen to Pandora at my desk or in car.
