Subject: pressing hold while booting erases settings

pressing hold while booting erases settings

Hi,

first post here, I'd like to make a suggestion;

"pressing hold (lock) while booting erases settings" is IMHO a very annoying
feature. Normally this requires an explicit manual action since you can't
boot while the lock is on -- except when the player automatically reboots
after unplugging the USB cable. It has bitten me a number of times already
when this unintentionally erased all my settings because hold was on while
unplugging the USB cable. I'd suggest to move this functionality to a key
one has to actively press while booting (eg. rewind).

Thoughts?

        Geert
