    Another negative vs the HME version. The HME version never prompted you if you were still listening.

    But given the reasoning in prompt it makes sense. They don't want to pay for plays if no one is actually listening.

    The web client for Pandora has behaved like that for years. The HTML5 update has merely made it easier to implement the existing web client functionality on other devices.

    I had the HME prompt me (and I'm a paid subscriber). I've only ever seen it happen once, but definitely occurred in the past two months.

    I never got that. A couple of times I accidentally let it run all weekend long without noticing and it just kept going. The new behavior does make sense obviously for Pandora (and as stated has always been the case with web clients), but I liked the old behavior better as a customer. ;)

    Second interesting observation.

    After listening to Pandora on my TiVo Roamio for another 30 minutes, I switched over to my Apple TV and listened to iTunes Radio (also connected to my receiver like my TiVo, so I can get the benefit of my good speakers). After three hours iTunes Radio paused and gave me a similar prompt asking if I was still there and listening.

    I guess I don't often listen for more than a couple of hours...

    I tried it a couple of times today. I only had to sign in the first time I used it. The second time it just started up with me already logged in.
    EDIT: I just tried it again and I didn't need to log in again.

    Same here. In fact I had logged in a few months ago by launching the XBox version on my TiVo using kmttg and when I launched the official version it still remembered me from that, so I never had to log in at all when I tried it yesterday.

    I've only had to sign in on the new version once (per TiVo or TiVo Mini).

    I've relaunched the new Pandora 4-5 times now between boxes and have not had to re-login.

    Just wanted to chime in that I still do not have the new Pandora on my Roamio. Does anyone know if this is a slow rollout or should everyone have it by now?

    The HME version most definitely DID prompt you to keep listening.

    I have the new version, I like it only because it's much faster than the previous HME version. It is missing a few features, but they will flesh that out eventually. The benefit to the HTML5 version is that it is the same version that runs on the XBOX 360 and the Wii.

    I've got the paid sub and it hasn't happened to me (so far).

    It never did for me, and I used it an entire day on a regular basis. However I would thumbs up/down or skip songs every once in a while.

    But now I have no Pandora apps at all, they took away the old one without adding the new to Music. Not on a Roamio btw (it's an Elite), but something's not right. I have the Opera store etc. just no Pandora now.

    Damn shame they're ditching the old app, it was the best one they ever had.

    I just tried this on my Roamio using kmttg and the interface is quite different than what is on my 2013 Samsung TV. I like it. I don't have this new version on my Roamio yet. The one thing that does bother me, at it's a kmttg thing is that I can't paste the URL to the Pandora interface into kmttg. I had to use Tiny URL to shorten it. Grumble.

    I haven't gotten the new app yet but the only one disappeared yesterday, leaving me Pandora-less. Has this happened to anyone else? Haven't had a chance to force a few connections yet, so it may be that simple. Hopefully!

    Restart the HDUI (thumbs down/thumbs up/play/play) or reboot the box.

    Any way to get the old Pandora app back? The new one doesn't work with my receiver (Denon AVR-790). It plays one song and then the audio drops. Happens every time. Only way to get audio back without restarting Pandora is to switch inputs on the receiver - but after one more song, it drops again.

    This sucks:mad:
