    Recently Ive been having problems with my music player crashing (be it Mixzing or the default music player) whenever I decide to push the app to the background and start something new. It's very annoying because it seems to persist across nightly versions and clean installs. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Glad to know I'm not the only one. It happens to me regardless of whether I have the headphones plugged in or not.

    Yeah my music app dies anytime I try to do anything else on the phone... I'm using Subsonic, sometimes it just stops playing, other times it shuts down completely... I'm guessing it's the lack of memory on these phones...

    Are you running a GB ROM? If so,Gingerbread has an aggressive task killer. You can roll back to a Froyo ROM, or you can run PEv5.0.2, which has a feature where you can lock an app into memory to prevent this from happening. I have the music app and doggcatcher locked into memory, so when I surf on dolphin-browser my music or podcast doesn't get killed. Hope that helps!

    Yea, I've been running the latest Cyanogen Nightlies. I guess I'll check out PE since I've never used it before and my problem is a really big issue for me.

    Edit: That fixed it, thanks! I'm also really liking PE over CM7, I think I'll be sticking with it for awhile. :)
