Three months ago I was able to use Stitcher to stream podcasts on my NextD box, but now it now longer works. I get a message saying that I need to connect to the Internet, even though I have a hardline connection to the NextD box.
Jason, what you described sounds like a issue caused by the Stitcher app itself. Have you tried reinstall the app to see if it works? Also try clearing the cache and data for the Stitcher app to see if that helps.
The cache data was cleared and that didn't resolve the issue. The app was then uninstalled and re-installed. What happens now is I get a huge feedback sound through my speakers then a message saying 'buffering error'. This appears to be the same type of issue that continues with Google play, it won't buffer the stream. I've never had any issues with either one of these apps on other Android systems...so I'm not sure why the NextD is so problematic with these audio only streaming apps.
