HM-901 - Page 200

post #2986 of 2998
Oh? Sorry if this sounds like a silly question, but how does fast scroll work on the HM-901? I've not experienced this function so far. I've tried scrolling through my songs and it took ages to get down to the end of the list. Would the fast scroll be akin to the scrolling on iPod Classic where it jumps to alphabetical order?

Think he means when you scroll the wheel manually really fast.

The old firmware does work, although it's not as efficient as iPod, you can still fast scroll the list. The taiji 2 does not work at all. You will have to watch it one by one.. :mad:

functional comparison:

- boot up a little slower 

- better navigation

- digital filter gone

- two sleep option?

@Kiats and I were just testing out the dual sleep functions.

 

In case anyone is wondering, the first one is the usual sleep function that we've seen thus far. The second one powers off even when the player is being used. I honestly do not know what scenarios I would want to use the second one for, seriously.

You are correct: that was the origins of the sleep function in many of these music stations or radios - so that you didn't have to get up and switch off as you are being lulled into dreamland by the soothing music. smily_headphones1.gif

Just updated to firmware 2.001 right now. I agree as previously mentioned by other users that the mids and highs are more focused and clearer. Bass is still as good as it used to be. As for the UI, I'm liking the new look. I feel that the UI itself is adequate for a music player. It's obviously not and will never be as great as the AK240 UI, but it is reliable enough.

 

The only thing that bothers me right now is I hear very soft static at the start of a song whenever I change to another song in a different album. The static is not there if I change to another song in the same album as the song I am currently listening to. 

 

Not sure if other users have experienced the same.

I'm having some issues trying to update my HM-901to V2.00. After entering the recovery mode screen, it says "update interrupted", "file not found". So I press the "Back" button and it suddenly says "update completed" and shuts down automatically. But when I reboot it, it still reverts back to firmware 1.058 V3. Not sure what gives? I'm using a new SD card (FAT32).

The pop from shutting down will probably wake you up. Haha. Might switch off before you actually fall asleep as well unlike the original sleep function that switches off only when there's nothing playing for a set amount of time. 

 

Then again, I listen by albums so I can see where this one might be useful for people listening with longer playlists like artists etc.

Is there anything else on your card? Try an empty card with just the update file and see if that works. Format the card again as well in case.

Yeah, i've tried that, thanks. Maybe my update file is corrupted. It attempts to load the new firmware but then abruptly says "firmware error", then just automatically shuts down. I'm re-downloading the update file again. Hopefully it'll work this time around. 

 

Update: Ok, so I managed to resolve my issue. I was downloading the update from my Mac and it would automatically unzip the file after downloading. So I manually re-compressed the update file and my HM-901 would not read it. In the end, I downloaded the file from my Windows PC and the HM-901 updated without any hiccups. Damn Apple :/

Looks like a little inconvenient. As you says it's easier just to listen an album instead a long playlist. There's a chance that they will improve it in the future. Anyway it's a non-essential function.
