Hi... I'm currently running r23779 on my iPod 5g (30GB). Back in July, I updated Rockbox on my iPod (to a then-current build) and I noticed that I couldn't use the previous/next track buttons on the wheel. I didn't use the player for a while, so it fell out-of-mind. A few weeks ago, I upgraded to r23779 and the bug still exists.

Basically, when I click the button, Rockbox thinks I want to seek and doesn't want to switch tracks. The only way I can go to the next track (or replay the current track) is to go into the playlist and select from there.

This bug happened once before (2 years ago?) and was fixed in a newer build without a bug report... Tonight, I'll try updating to the newest build to see if it got fixed recently but I didn't see it mentioned recently here. Thanks!

P.S. Someone else also mentioned the same problem at -- see "Mike"s August 10, 2009 comment.
This task depends upon

we dont accept bug reports from random comments on blog posts.. and 23779 is 250 revisions old so its out of date... and I know that prev/next works fine because I use my 5g video plenty...

reopen when you try with the real current build
