    To force BeyondPod to start, the BT device would have to explicitly request BeyondPod, which seems unlikely.

    What actually gets started in response to a generic Play command is a bit of a dark art, but it's likely to be the most recently started app. This may be BeyondPod, even if you've shut down the UI, if the most recent action was a BeyondPod background process.

    Preventing the device from sending the automatic play command on connection may be the only way to prevent this, I'm afraid.

    Another possibility might be to change your BeyondPod settings to reduce the frequency of feed updates.

    Don't know about Google Music or Pandora but Spotify for some unfathomable reason removes its media button listener after a while, a few minutes. So if you've first used BeyondPod and then Spotify the remote control stack will look like this:

    Code:
    Remote Control stack entries (last is top of stack):
      pi: PendingIntent{428ac170: PendingIntentRecord{428199a0 android broadcastIntent}} -- pack: null  -- ercvr: ComponentI
    nfo{mobi.beyondpod/mobi.beyondpod.services.player.MediaButtonIntentReceiver}  -- client: null  -- uid: -1  -- type: 0  s
    tate: PLAYSTATE_STOPPED, PLAYBACK_POSITION_INVALID ,ms ,1.0X
      pi: PendingIntent{42bfdd00: PendingIntentRecord{42be5b90 mobi.beyondpod broadcastIntent}} -- pack: null  -- ercvr: Com
    ponentInfo{mobi.beyondpod/mobi.beyondpod.services.player.MediaButtonIntentReceiver}  -- client: null  -- uid: 1000  -- t
    ype: 0  state: PLAYSTATE_STOPPED, PLAYBACK_POSITION_INVALID ,ms ,1.0X
      pi: PendingIntent{42deb790: PendingIntentRecord{42d1d408 com.spotify.mobile.android.ui broadcastIntent}} -- pack: com.
    spotify.mobile.android.ui  -- ercvr: ComponentInfo{com.spotify.mobile.android.ui/com.spotify.mobile.android.service.Medi
    aButtonReceiver}  -- client: android.media.IRemoteControlClient$Stub$Proxy@42da1238  -- uid: 10089  -- type: 0  state: P
    LAYSTATE_PAUSED, -9216204211029966080ms ,1.0X
    And a little while later it'll look like this without having used BeyondPod or Spotify:
    Code:
    Remote Control stack entries (last is top of stack):
      pi: PendingIntent{428ac170: PendingIntentRecord{428199a0 android broadcastIntent}} -- pack: null  -- ercvr: ComponentI
    nfo{mobi.beyondpod/mobi.beyondpod.services.player.MediaButtonIntentReceiver}  -- client: null  -- uid: -1  -- type: 0  s
    tate: PLAYSTATE_STOPPED, PLAYBACK_POSITION_INVALID ,ms ,1.0X
      pi: PendingIntent{42bfdd00: PendingIntentRecord{42be5b90 mobi.beyondpod broadcastIntent}} -- pack: mobi.beyondpod  --
    ercvr: ComponentInfo{mobi.beyondpod/mobi.beyondpod.services.player.MediaButtonIntentReceiver}  -- client: android.media.
    IRemoteControlClient$Stub$Proxy@42b7ac88  -- uid: 10063  -- type: 0  state: PLAYSTATE_PAUSED, -9216204211029966080ms ,1.
    0X
    Perhaps other apps do something similar? Or maybe it is Android that pops the remote control stack? In any case I don't think it is BeyondPod that is doing anything wrong.

    recommend one of these two solutions:

    To select the player: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...y.music.player

    To stop players:https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....and.stop.play

Is this an intended feature? Can it be disabled?

    You could try one of these two options:

    To stop all players (though this is BETA and need improvements) :
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....and.stop.play

    To start the player of your choice reliably:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...y.music.player
