If anyone is going to test it, make sure to post bugs in the Riovolution.org thread. (There's a link in the "Vibez F" thread in this forum.)

So what is a spoken word filter anyways? As well, just what does the USB mode selection do? That's not like a USB host feature is it?

Interestingly, I just posted a question asking exactly what the Spoken Word Filter does. I haven't fully tested it, yet. It looks like it's a way for you to choose what genres (Audio Book, Comedy, Podcast, etc.) get treated as spoken word tracks for browsing. I'm hoping tracks that match a filter would also be excluded from DJ generated playlists.

The USB mode (labeled "Transfer Mode" in the menu system) option lets you select what connection type you want to use when connecting to your computer. The options are: Automatic, MTP, MSC and Charge Only. (Automatic is equivalent to how the current 1.04 firmware works.)

Then ideal it is!
You add a genre to the SWF e.g. "Podcast".
Tracks that match a genre in the SWF are not considered as "music" but "spoken word". They will not appear anywhere other than under the "Spoken Word" menu in the music library. They will also be excluded from the "Rio DJ" auto generated items.

BTW, it doesn't give you a list of genres to choose from, that would be too limiting. It lets you type in whatever text you want for the genre to be filtered.
