Subject: FMR resume/bookmark bug
From: Neon John (johngd_at_bellsouth.net)
Last week I reported that I had problems with the latest build of
samuripanda's bookmarking mods on my FMR. Basically, the resume function had
become unreliable. The situation got worse so I went back to the previous
build, the first release, which had worked perfectly.
The problem persisted and got worse to the point that now resume only works
about 1 out of 5 times. The symptom is that the unit boots normally and then
flashes the resume screen for only a fraction of a second, followed by the
main file listing screen. It looks like it has gotten a keystroke other than
"play". My FMR is one of those where the ON key has to be held until the boot
screen appears to make it boot. If I press the key only momentarily, it runs
the drive for a bit and then turns back off. This thought just occurred as
I'm writing this so I haven't had a chance to correlate but I wonder if the ON
keystroke is getting stored during a non-successful boot attempt and is then
being read by the resume screen?
This is exactly the same code that worked perfectly when I loaded it before,
replacing the mainstream daily build from about a month ago. Unfortunately I
can't recall WHICH daily build so I can't go back that far.. It may be a pre-
vs post-plugin issue.
My FMR has a weak battery contact that causes a complete loss of power if it
is jarred just right. This has resulted in my having to reload parameters
from cfg numerous times. These power cycles and reloads have had no effect on
this problem, indicating to me that the problem is not in volatile memory.
