I noticed that when doing searches, hitting the back button loses the previous search criteria.  Example :
1. open JRemote menu
2. press Audio
3. press Artists. It shows 1546 artists
4. press the magnifying glass to search
5. type the name of an artist in your library, in my case I used Chorzempa
6. in my case, I found 7 artist matches for Daniel Chorzempa - slightly different variations or with different punctuation
7. I opened one folder to look at the albums
8. I press the back button
9. Now I see all the artists again like in step 3 . I had expected to see the same results as in step 6.

Not sure how hard this is to implement, but it would be great especially on a mobile device not to have to type searches like this repeatedly.

Of course, I will fix my library using MC to consolidate the artists name into one for this case, but the same goes for, say, an album search when hitting the back button.

For the next time there is an update I would like to suggest a couple of small fixes/tweaks that would please me greatly.
I use JRemote, a lot, to select Movies or Shows to watch, after I've navigated my Video library I put my mobile down on the sofa next to me which can inadvertently switch it from portrait to landscape, this currently has the side effect of placing you in the Audio section away from the location I just navigated to. It seems appropriate to me that switching between portrait and landscape displays should maintain the current interface location.
The other is if you have Chromecast enabled, when in a Video page the Search icon disappears from the top on the screen hidden in the 3dots with Playmode. Or at least it does on my mobile. As I use search a lot to locate films I would love it if it remained visible at the top of the screen.
Thanks

A new version of JRemote2 has been submitted to Google for review and should be available on the Play Store soon. For enrolled beta testers first, and the general public shortly after.
Depending on how long it'll take to be reviewed, it should be available soon.

The biggest change to the app itself is bringing it up to date to the latest Android version. Feature wise, we have added a global Search in the Nav Drawer, as well as a "DayNight" skin that automatically selects the Dark or Light skin (select "Follow System" in the Theme setting).

JRemote2 2.4.0 (10/11/2023)
Thank you so much for adding this global search feature!!!
Now JRemote is even more amazing.
However, the search function is showing far more results than expected, e.g. searching for Alane (from Wes) it shows all songs containing alone or similar words. Is this some kind of phonetic search? If so, can you make this phonetic feature optional (perhaps in the settings)?

Kind regards,
Ruediger

Do you know which option should I set in JRiver to enable possibility of modifying rating in media files? Currently is working only in read mode (value of rating isn't saved after changing in JRemote2)

You need to enable and use authentication in the MC server's Settings > Media Network and not use read-only authentication in JRemote2. Then use the authentication username+password in JRemote2 when adding or editing a server.

Yes, I've tried it. But no success.

Any chance it is on the roadmap to have JRemote2 send the now playing info to car audio over Bluetooth? Neither this app nor Gizmo does. MO4Media does but it has a few stability issues when used outside the home.

I guess I should take this as a no.

I think you're asking about Android Auto support.  JRiver for Android has it.

So this is a simple question.

For a laptop that's not on a network, what remote can I use to control JR MC32?

And an unrelated followup if I may.... same Mc32 recently installed and I notice that Play Doctor is not available. How to enable in this feature?

TIA

Play Doctor requires a track selection.
I select a track -then Right click and highlight More Play Options - then highlight fourth option down.

Remote control of Laptop requires connectivity (Wi Fi LAN).
Perhaps, Bluetooth paring, but not aware it exists currently?

Media Network and things like DLNA and UPnP in general only works over a network with ethernet and Wi-Fi, it's not going to be possible to do it via Bluetooth. You can create a local network (LAN) with Wi-Fi without internet access and it'll function that way with MC and Media Network.

When I right Click a genre or a track and select "More Options" i only get a shaded "no zones". But I am using MC32 in a new environment with a HDD attached to a laptop and no wifi.

I discovered that playdoctor can now be used when creatinga Playchart for Car Radio so this has the same features I am looking for and can be used more brilliantly for me.

When I am using JRemote and my display blacks out, I must unlock my phone before I can adjust the volume.

When I am using the RadioParadise app and I press my Volume Up or Volume Down, it responds without unlocking the phone.

Is there some way to make JRemote act like the RadioParadise app and adjust the volume without unlocking?
I did not see a setting that might apply.
