    Scan Speed Adjustment ?

    Is there any way that I can adjust the speed at which SB2 scans through tracks - I find it a bit too slow at the moment, 1min increments would be useful.

    Cheers

    Keep holding the button it will do 2x, 4x, 8x, 16x (I think).

    This is how it =should= work.... but doesn't. You have to press the button for each increase in speed (e.g. 4 clicks to go to 16x). Not very intuitive. I've posted a feature request which addresses this and a few other usability issues. http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1911

    I wouldn't agree that that's how it "should" work. In fact, I think the way
    it works now is perfect. It allows for more precision and doesn't require
    that you get your timing just right.

    Me too.

    I checked out similar functionality on a Pace Sky+ box and a Topfield
    5800 (both essentially dual tuner digital recorders) and both require
    pressing the button multiple times. The Sky+ overloads holding down the
    button to mean "Skip to beginning|end".

    Well... I've honestly =never= encountered any media playing devices that didn't ramp up scanning (or volume level) on key hold. How about this.... if it's possible: keep the existing behaviour for rapid key presses, but ramp up on key hold. The best of both worlds, non?

    I'm more than happy to remove my request, however, if the majority of Squeezers ike it the way it is. How abut a poll?

    The majority of "Squeezers" don't even subscribe to this list/read this
    forum so your poll wouldn't really be meaningful.

    True, but it seems to me most new features and fixes are generated from the comments made on this list.... representative or not.
