Read this if you have Streaming Audio Problems with your HTC Evo

Hello Everyone! I’ve been busy prepping some big changes that are going to make the site and mobile apps 10x better! Can you say apps that load in a fraction of the time? You will be able to soon!

For now, I do need to address this as I see it frequently. If you’re not using an HTC EVO, then move along, there’s nothing to see here. If you have an HTC EVO (which was my first android) and would like to fix streaming problems with FIT Radio and possibly other apps, then… 

First off, let me say this doesn’t effect all EVO’s, the easiest thing to do is make sure you’re running the most recent software update. Your favorite sprint store can help you with this if you are unsure. If you’re having problems, try this as it’s fixed every EVO I’ve tried it on.

Apparently there was a sprint update that changed the settings below to something that disrupts streaming. Whether it is because Sprint wants to redirect this traffic to a proxy server or someone just goofed on the settings, who knows. Here’s the fix:
1) Dial ##3282#
2) Choose Edit Mode
3) Enter MSL
4) Choose Advanced
5) Change HTTP PD Proxy Port to: 0
6) Change HTTP PD Proxy Address to:

These are the settings for other Android devices so I do not know why Sprint changed them. But this will get your streaming services working again.

Sprint tech support have acknowledged the issue in the internal Known Issues and will push out these settings on request (provided that you get a tech who will actually check the Known Issues for the device for the instructions).

Thanks everyone and you’ll see a new post from me soon that details all the site changes that are coming!
