Right, it's interesting seeing how the RB methodology differs from the
iRiver firmware - as a user of the H140 with its original FW for such a
longtime I've gotten into the mindset of how that particular firmware
works (and as any H1x0 users will also understand, the Now Playing screen
is the focal point of that firmware, when playback is stopped it shows
total files and directories on the device instead of the current song, and
the tree browser is just the means to an end as opposed to the focal point
of the interface.

Very interesting, thanks for everyone's feedback on all of this.
