I agree with Kjell. It could be more intuitive, but of course, it's
difficult to change something established. I don't know how it is on the
player models, but on the recorder there's lot's of space on the display
to display something like "PLAY: Ok, OFF: Cancel" as it is already done
on the time/date screen. Another possiblity would be to display the old
value in brackets additionally.
