For whatever reason, I had quite a few offline stations. Which I rarely used. I am using an iPhone 6+ (yes, a little old, in iPhone-age, but still quite serviceable.
But now, I need to use them, my Offline Channels Mainly, I need to use the Spa channel. Long story short, I have HORRID tinnitus and the loud ringing in my ears is enough to wake the dead. My Spa channel has countless recordings of rain and ocean waves. Tinnitus conquered and peaceful sleep restored.
But -- the Spa channel recordings in Offline Mode were only about 10 and they weren't the best. I couldn't find a way to refresh or update them. Stupidly, I turned my Offline Mode off. Which had the net effect of erasing ALL of my Offline channels.
So I turned it back on, and it told me that it was downloading my top 4 channels -- 3 channels and thumbprint.
Well, it downloaded TWO and thumbprint -- and Spa (even though it is one of the top channels used) --- was not downloaded. It downloaded my 90s hits and Buena Vista Social Club channel. Neither of which helps.
So, with nothing to lose, I turned Offline Mode off again, which again had the net effect of deleting all the offline stations. Turned it back on, and it tells me that it is downloading 4 stations, just like before.
Only this time, only ONE station and thumbprint were downloaded --- 90s pop and thumbprint. Again, still not helpful. We're going backwards.
Pandora's "help" is anything but. For the love of God, somebody please help me! I don't mind running this on Wifi all night if I have to, but I'd rather not. It plays things that are not suitable, and that wakes me up. It defeats the purpose of having pre-selected things that serve a specific purpose. Plus, I travel a lot, and offline mode is really good for when I'm trying to sleep on an airplane.
Thanks in advance for your help.
