I was hoping for a sleep timer. At least we have wrap-around scrolling now.

Has anything been done about the audio delay in video recordings...or is this an SMC issue also? Is a fix in the works for this problem?

SansaMe.....Can I PLEASE get an Answer to my question?

What about the delay in audeo on video recordings?

 

As I said in the  SMC section you sent me to, NO ONE HAS ANSWERED THE QUESTION!

 

 When can we expect a fix on this MAJOR issue? I don't know whether I should continue finding and copying movies or not!

I'm very happy with the Ogg and FLAC support. The improved quality voice recording is a nice addition too, one that I wasn't expecting. The wrap-around listing was a must-have feature which is now there.

 

I lost my Go and Best Rated list in the update, but that's no biggy to me.

 

Cheers to Sansa.

What do  you call this, selective hearing? My first question was answered within 15 minutes, so I know someone is there.
