  • About track now shows rating.
  • Power off 'Saving Settings' now shows some basic progress.
  • Normal switch off (i.e. not lower power or other emergency) now rebuilds database index. This should speed up power on time.

Rubennyc, could you ask the programmer if he could implement pan/balance? ;)

That's the one missing feature that makes the Vibez useless to me (and any other player besides Cowons), since both my ears are differently "weighted".

Just add it to our Wishlist thread: http://www.riovolution.org/thread/310 I'm not sure if Defector actually reads the wishlist thread, but some stuff in there has mysteriously appeared in the recent firmware updates. ;)

Posted... keeping my fingers crossed. :)

Cool. Saw that. You articulated it 1,000 times better than I would have. :)

Don't know if it would've helped, but the Karma had a Stereo Separation feature, that basically turned stereo into mono piped through both ear-phones. The idea was to make a lot of old Beatles tunes less jarring.

I'll keep my fingers crossed, too. Sounds like a reasonable request.
