Yes a couple of questions did get out of order, so that answer of course what not the answer to that question and in fact I don't think that question was actually answered. Though from what was said, I can only assume we won't see this device working with video.

You should have been there, those are two very good questions.

1. I have actually asked about this one and I do not think there will be any changes made in this regard. My suggestion is for you to use the All Channel Category, then you can scroll up or down just like you are talking about in the single category. (I know I've seen you mention this several times, but it doesn't seem to be that big of an issue for most)

2. Since Internet Radio (Wifi) is more or less as a backup to the Satellite service, I don't see this happening either, but we can of course add the to our running suggestions of feature request. I certainly wouldn't mind seeing this happen, along with allow preset to be used while in Internet Radio mode.

Again two great questions...

Channel up/down is the biggest drawback for me with the Stiletto. I hate not having a button to go up or down a channel. We're so used to it with TV remotes that it's just funny this doesn't have it. I don't like hitting 3 buttons to change up 1 channel. Kind of annoyying really. Not sure what button they could assign for this.

You know what is strange is that I am just the opposite. I actually like that it jumps to the category mode first, because the music is still playing and I can quickly scroll up or down the channel list (If I am in the all channel category) but now I get to see what is playing on that channel prior to switching. In my opinion this is a feature, not a drawback!

Come on what are we talking, 5 or 10 extra seconds here to switch to the next channel? LOL I guess it just goes to show you that no matter how they would have done it, one of of us wouldn't have been quite as happy.

i guess that's true but I use the Stiletto a lot in the car and it's a bit dangerous to try to look at the screen and scroll back and forth. If I had the channel up/down I could kep my finger on those buttons and my eyes on the road.

When at home or listening to it as a walkman I am fine with being able to browse while the current channel is playing. It's more of a "what I'm used to" than anything else really.

This chat sort of reminds me of the ones occasionally held at HTF where the filtered bot questions are brought up to the studio heads and they'll give you a little something but will basically gloss over most. And you pretty much get the impression that they're only there out of obligation and would rather be somewhere else.

Still, it's great to hear the addition of a clock, a possible sleep timer, and high-bit WiFi audio coming soon.



Any mention of having the ability to love songs while in 'Radio Replays' somewhere down the line?

Basically it's doing the same thing by hard powering it down but at least I didn't have to remove the battery. The guy said last night though that this should be fixed. I can't wait for the new firmware!
I can't remember if I said this anywhere else, so I'll repeat it. I had this issue as well. I put the unit to sleep by remote in the home dock and holding the power button down for a few seconds in the car dock. I do not let it go to sleep by itself in the car dock (countdown clock). I have not had this issue since I started doing this. I, too, am excited for the firmware update so I don't have to worry about it anymore.

Recorded songs? You mean songs that you "LOVE" they have always been separated. If you mean doing scheduled recordings, those are separated too and can be ff by song or if programming by segments.

Can you clarify what you mean?

He's asking if the songs recorded in blocks can be split into individual songs.

If that is indeed what he is asking, why didn't you answer him? The answer is NO!

Why can't we rewind or fast forward? Record via WiFi I can see but I've seen a lot of Linux software that supports the Windows streaming and captures the stream for playback.
