    Well I can't believe this. After days of the player crashing with playlists, today the X1 decided that it was going to be kind to me and decided to stop crashing.
    The only thing I did different was to transfer a podcast. What a fickle mistress.

    Update: Spoke too soon. It has started crashing again.

    Update 2: New firmware! It appears to have solved the issue!

    I have found it to have a weak BT signal. The cases have an effect on the signal as well (at least to me). I run the thing nakid when using BT.

    Good update, scroll wheel sensitivity is a welcome addition. But the title issue is still not fixed in this update. This issue is driving me mad as I was used to browsing through the library like that.

    Dear friend,

    Sorry about that. From the feedback of the engineers, the sorting still need more improvements. We are still fixing it. :sweat:

    I couldn't get it to open. I tried several times on two different laptops. I've not had this problem before so it's probably just me, LOL!

    My X1 tried to deafen me again today by playing at lineout volume after I had selected headphones. I can't risk this damaging my hearing again. It is now on Ebay.

    What are trying to open? That firmware file?
    The FW file I got did not come compressed, you just copy it to your SD card and update the FW from there.

    I seem to recall in the past that I opened it, put what was needed in the player and went from there.

    I will try again later in the week. Thank you!

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure the firmware used to be distributed in a compressed file that you had to open and extract. This one is just the uncompressed file so just copy it as is.

    Having the wheel sensitively on my X1ii makes the scroll wheel much more usable for me so that was a good improvement. I still use the buttons alot though.

    I've had my x1ii since last year around this time..I wonder how much better the X3III is. Might look into getting one of those.

    :darthsmile:Glad to hear about that.

    Thanks. I really like the X1ii. I know it isn't perfect but it sounds very good and I'm quite happy with it. The firmware updates keep making it more usable too so thank you.
