just bought a clip 8 gb, w/ latest firmeware.
I’m very irritated from the behavior of the display. It goes off complete after a few seconds while playing. I think that’s the time-out from the settings?
But, there is no visible sign that the player is on! The blue ring turn also dark, display complete black (no only the backlight), how do I know that the **bleep** thing is off or on? Often it’s in my car connected to my tuner with an aux-in cable, so when I switch off the tuner, I forget to switch of the clip, because - there is no **bleep** light. Yeah, I could hit the center button but … how do I enable the permanent glowing of the blue ring?
BTW: I know that the OLEd display have a shorter lifetime when permanent illuminated. That’s one reason for the timer-out (other is power saving) But why is the display then always on when connected to my pc & charging from usb? Shouldn’t it go off there also, because of lifetime-saving? )
