What next?

Most of the instructions for setting up the IPR5000 also apply to the Android version. Click here for more information.

Notes

  • Pressing the Android device's Home button will not completely stop the IPRadio software. It will continue receiving audio (and using the battery).
    • To switch back to the user interface (so you can change channels, etc), press and hold the home button to open the task manager (Android 4.x and later), then tap on the IPRadio entry.
    • To stop the IPRadio software completely (Android 4.x and later), press and hold the home button to open the task manager, then swipe it from left to right.
  • The current software is intended only for testing and should be considered "alpha" software. It may not be stable and may not support all of the same features as the actual IPR5000 or the Windows version.
