  1. I've not had any freezes so far today but i've had a number of instances where I just couldn't convince the watch to connect. Either toggling bluetooth on the phone will fix it normally OR earlier I had to restart the watch AND toggle bluetooth before it would connect again. Matt.
  2. Not currently working at all, can't connect. Tried resetting bluetooth on the phone and that's had no impact this time. I give up! ;) Matt.
  3. Spoke too soon. Phone froze up on me on the way home last night. I've got the watch on and with me again today to see if it repeats. Battery life continues to be excellent so far but then i'm rarely if ever touching the watch. Had numerous difficulties getting re-connected though (for instance I just thought i'd check it again while writing this and it's giving up and timing out trying to talk to the phone sitting on the desk 4 inches from my wrist). Disable and re-enable bluetooth on the phone and then the watch can reconnect again. They are definitely a long way from having this solved. Matt.
  4. I'm using HTC Desire, Orange UK, stock rom upgraded to Froyo by Orange/HTC so still stock. It was rooted BEFORE the upgrade and lost root after the upgrade (and I haven't seen much point in re-rooting it). So far with NO plugins installed, performance has been more than acceptable, barely any battery use today either from what the watch is telling me. Matt.
  5. Must admit today hasn't been too bad at all with no plugins installed. Not perfect, had a couple of times where it had to reconnect and wouldn't, swore at it a couple of times and left it be then tried it 10 minutes later and it eventually connected. Thus far today I think only once i've been convinced it was dead and then after half an hour or so I tried again and it worked - all other times it's reconnected no problem. It very much sounds like they need to bring up the robustness of their API so that 3rd party plugins can't knacker it because so far today it's doing the job much better. That said, without any plugins it doesn't actually *do* much ;) Matt.
  6. Slept on it and realised that I could try it without any plugins at all. Different people seem to have success by not using one or more of various plugins, plus I note from other discussions here that WhereAmI has gone from the market place and I *did* try using that yesterday (it had worked flawlessly in the past I should add). So, re-installed, re-paired, all plugins gone and/or disabled. So far today it's remained connected, we'll see how it does by the end of the day. *fingers crossed* Matt.
  7. Hi all, Well, I have to say that I am extremely disappointed with this so-called update to the LiveView - from what I have experienced this weekend it's absolutely no different to how it was before the update. I've had two phone lock-ups (which is the most unacceptable thing, I can't afford my phone freezing up on me at random times) and all kinds of difficulty getting the two things to talk to each other. This afternoon I uninstalled all the liveview stuff, rebooted and re-installed. re-paired and re-connected it and all was fine. Within two hours my phone was frozen again. Until such time as Sony Ericsson can work out how to release a product that actually DOES work i've removed it from my phone to free up the desperately needed space (Desire on Orange UK). I'll wait and see how the next update (if there is one) does and then see about reinstalling it. I'm so disappointed, the product has enormous potential but has been totally messed up by, from what I can see, software errors (I'm a software engineer myself). Maybe SE should consider open sourcing the software so that others can try and assist them. I don't so much care about the loss of connectivity, it's a pain but not a show stopper - but freezing my phone up and causing me to have to pull the battery to get it working again is completely unworkable (I've tried, twice it froze up during a call or while the phone was ringing). Ugh. Rant over. Matt.
  8. Hullo all, I got myself a LiveView for christmas and have been having all the usual "fun" with it, however i'm starting to get a handle on some of the ways to more consistently make it work and thought i'd share them for your opinions and thoughts! I'm using the current versions of software, i.e. the liveware app has big icons for the headphones, liveview and so forth. Starting from a position where the device is already paired, frequently it'll get to where I can't connect it - it says 0:00 when I turn it on, and then when I press the right hand button it tries to connect and goes back to 0:00. If you run liveware and look at the devices you can see it is actually connected briefly and then disconnects. If this happens, just manually start the liveview app and then press the button on the device to reconnect, i've found this makes it connect every time i've tried so far. If the device runs out of battery while it's connected however, be warned that this will at some point cause a 100% cpu spin on the phone. I haven't seen this any other time, but twice now i've seen the device run out of battery and then a little while later (perhaps when RSS tries to send an update?) the phone grinds and dies. I would suggest that if the battery on the phone fails then you should terminate the liveview application or do a restart of your phone just to prevent it freezing at an inopportune time. The other issues I had when I first got the device such as not being able to get any plugins at all to work etc seem to have disappeared by themselves, not sure what the reason was but I have seen two or three software updates since I first got it all so i'm happy to write it off to that fixing it. I've managed to get a number of plugins working, including the liveview poweramp one, linked to winamp and last.fm to get all the album images and so forth showing, which is fantastic. Where am I is very cool too. Also got the contact call one working with the images from the contact list, again, very nice. This device has a ton of potential, let's hope SE can rectify these niggly robustness issues in the January update. Matt.
