Ok, Chris thank you for your info. With the keep alive function, i was referring to the MPD Watch option. It nailed this issue (not only like a skipping cd when left on a internet radio station, but also certain to complete unresponsiveness of the bdp) before, and thought it might not haven been implemented yet. Would really make our lives easier if you'd flip that in your current roadmap with some priority
The play function is something i asked you about before, so i am excited it made it to the new interface. Only make it warn the user for playing a complete harddrive (as mentioned, it started to play 2 Tb drive and taking over the machine, rendering it unresponsive to any input, other then a hard reboot.) u say it has to update the database, but wasnt the idea it wouldn't have to? Just insert and play? Even make it browsable instead of updating the complete drive first?
cheers, and thanks, keep up the good work!
o, and please, the last.fm thing. Are we logged in as bryston there, or is this also nonfunctional. Otherwise, please fix that also?
the picture i posted was for fun, only to show the bdp starting playing my Klassiek drive, and showing your Daft Punk fillers...
There are also additional issue's in regards to initial upgrading that seem to be causing havoc (error 09 upon upgrading) with some units that we are also currently working on pinning down.
I'm not sure what you mean by the "keep alive function"? If your referring to the BDP locking up and replaying the same half second then i guess that answers the following question.
By the way has anyone tried playing back audio over night using manic moose only to find it frozen the following day? I've had my BDP-2 running for four days straight, looping the same six albums.
The Play <drive name> is a intended addition, the idea is your buddy comes by, you plug in the thumb drive, wait for it to update the database, click the button, it adds the contents to the playlist and starts playing the first song. The downside is if you have more then a few hundred songs on the drive; the playlist is to large for most devices to handle the large playlist that gets created.
