"Searching..." notification: Log ID C6EK2YH3X [#15831]

Post by TroubleClef » Mon Jun 17, 2019 10:00 pm

MMA version 1.3.5.0858

I get a "searching..." notification on my Galaxy S9 homescreen with this new version of MMA. The notification seems to come and go throughout the day and doesn't seem to have a connection to whether music is playing or not, or if MMA is active or in the background.

This notification is independent of the "preparing" notification that started appearing a few versions back, which appears after a reboot of the phone.

I get this same thing. It's been going on for awhile now. I assume it's searching for new tracks? But, why so often and why when not even active or open?

It happens all the time on my galaxy note 8, too.

It's distracting so I turned the mediamonkey icon notification off, but I still don't want Mediamonkey wasting my phone's data or resources with a seemingly pointless recurring task.

What's the explanation for this feature?

I'll try to get a log at some point but I also experience this.

I tried turning off the notifications, but aside from not actually stopping the task, I also lost the player widget so that's not a good option...

I hope this will be addressed in the next version.

I'm having this problem too, note 9 android 9. Searching... Pops up in notifications regularly, regardless of whether music is playing or not. It seems to use battery although not a ton. Overnight my battery went from 100% to 92%, with the phone untouched. Previously it would get to maybe 97% overnight. I don't remember seeing this before, only change was a fresh install of my pc system software. Reinstalled MMA a few times but the problem persists. Everything else is completely normal.

Honestly for a paid app, someone from MediaMonkey should have at least responded to this post already.

Hi,
Searching .... = Google Media Scanner is scanning new tracks and updates and MMA is "Searching for updates"

Note on Oreo, Pie you can under App info -> Notifications you can select what notifications will be shown.

As for log it it shows exactly that.

Why did this just start with the last MMA update?

Also, I could maybe see Android doing a scan after a sync or at some regular interval, but why constant searching when there is no new tracks and when the app isn't even being used??

Hi,
I am not observing that I see searching for a second when I receive media file on phone as I added download folder to scan. But that was also before last update.

Please send LOGs while MMA is searching... few times separated by 10-15 Minutes so that we can see what is going on and hopefully catch what triggers it.

I get a lot of "searching..." notifications too recently, sometimes just a minute or 2 apart and I haven't added any new tracks or even opened MMA. It's the MM icon that appears in the notification bar and disappears after a couple of seconds. Will try and grab a log.

Did you check the log I sent at beginning of this thread? It can be hard to catch with a log because the notification constantly appearing and disappearing.

Hi,
I do not have all tools for deep analyze of logs, thus I asked for more logs to increase statistical chance and to catch pattern why it happens to you.
