So I'm using Matt Gallagher audiostreamer. On the one view where it's implemented, everything is fine. I can background, access the remote and control the stream just fine. The problem is just when I pop another view in (the app also has news articles for reading, while listening to podcasts). Code: ArticleViewController *drinkdDetailViewController = [[ArticleViewController alloc] initWithNibName:@"ArticleViewController" bundle:nil]; [self.navigationController pushViewController:drinkdDetailViewController animated:YES]; The music continues to play, but I have issues with the new remoteControlReceivedWithEvent. Thing is, the new view doesn't have control to the streamer. Now remoteControlReceivedWithEvent does fire and is setup properly with the NSNotifications and canBecomeFirstResponder. I know I'm probably forgetting something really simple, but coding this app has put me into a brain dead state. Please help!
