It persisted across app restarts that it couldn't connect, don't know if that'll help you track it down.
Could you put all the App controls INTO the dashboard as well? Maybe let the user choose what mode they wnat to use? I'm using a Pixi+ so having the in-app and dashboard makes it very hard to use. Lots of screens can't be scrolled and I don't have access to some fields, buttons, or info.
Sure, I'd take a Open Dashboard button for the time being if you're open to implementing it.
Another slight issue: When I use Shuffle next to a content category on the Home screen (Music/Pictures/Videos), it'll put the music into the playlist. However, it will not play as I have to manually press each one (turn the background green) so they become active. Why doesn't it just make them all active? That is far more intuitive.
Some screens can also be scrolled on the X axis when its needless. You should probably lock this from happening.
I've tons more feedback, but I'll curtail that for now. Thanks Eric!
