I made some further tests and post the following for anybody looking to use this device for Deezer. Unfortunately the current functionality is very restricted - if i had known this before-hand I would not have bought the device.
Device patch level 1.04.17_v
- sign on using Deezer account
- access to Playlists
- access to Radios
- access to Charts
- basic search
- albums in your Deezer favourites are not shown
- any folders in your favourites are not shown
- most crucially, the ability to identify and play an album is missing
example: You can search for the band Arcade Fire. When you choose the band you are shown a list of songs by the band - sorted in Deezer popularity. Unlike the normal Deezer application, you cannot select the artist or album - you can only play the tracks in popularity order.
- search by album is not working. The results are the same as using the “All” option.
example: Search for the album Funeral. You are shown a list of tracks with Funeral in the title - again sorted by Deezer popularity - regardless of the album title. e.g. the second track identified is Electric Funeral by Black Sabbath from the album Paranoid…
Hoping these issues are fixed in the next patch…
