If true this would be especially frustrating as I am having plenty of problems with the 1.1.7 firmware, and I'm reluctant to try the 1.2.3 due to other problems reported. I find the 1.1.7 especially sluggish and navigation is difficult on some of the functions. MP3's don't report properly and are often missing the album art that shows properly in every other program. I encounter occasional crashes and lots of hangups that take an extended amount of time to resolve. All of this is holding back a great device as I have no complaints on the sound.
