Atrix Music Problems with Gingerbread Update
I recently installed the gingerbread update (Android 2.3.4) on my Atrix (MB860) phone. Most of the changes are improvements, but I am having a heck of a time with Music. When it has a problem I can repeat it like clockwork. At approximately 2:55 minutes the music will stop. It is like a power timeout, but I have power set to Max Performance. It gets squirley at this point. If I keep trying while on battery by changing songs, eventually it will play without stopping. I have reinstalled the GB update to see if it was a bad install but that didn't change anything. I changed the power save setting with no affect. I have tested the media files and that is not the problem. It seems that over time on battery the problem goes away, or if I start with power which doesn't show the problem, then go to battery, there is no problem... This is actually a big problem for me because most of the time I am out working and I plug in my earbuds and start listening to music. I actually use my Atrix more for music and data than voice.... Any fix I have missed? Anyone else have this problem?

I also have that problem, different songs, at different points. If I am using my bluetooth headset then drops out; I power that off, power it back, reconnect it, and the music is able to be restarted.  But if I use a wired headset, then nothing short of power cycling the phone will re-enable the music player.  Also, it happens whether using the built-in music player, Amazon player, or PowerAmp player.

I have the exact same problem! Does it on Pandora too. Sometimes my Bluetooth head phones will cut out, disconnect, the music will play on the phone, and then re-connect and play over the headphones. That doesn't sound too bad but that last 5 to 10 min to get the music back. Before the GB update I never had that problem. Where is the fix ATT?

Guess you missed the part that this happens with PowerAmp also.
