Subject: Re: Random BUTTON_OFF events
Date: 2004-01-19

If your hardware is having a problem, then mine is too.

Since I finally jumped from a december build to recent january builds (I think I started with 040115), I have seen random stops. I have turned off the bookmark ask, so I am not getting that prompt. However, I get these random offs both connected to AC and on battery with my Jukebox Recorder 20 (black bumpers, no upgrades, not firmware flashable). In some cases, the unit has just been sitting on a shelf with nothing at all touching it. In my case, I just end up in the directory of the song that was last played. If I hit on, and hit play to resume, it usually goes back to whatever it was playing.
