FS#11014 - iPod 5g next/prev track buttons don't work...


I have lost the ability to go to the previous or next track with Rockbox on my iPod Video (5g, 30gb). I haven’t used this iPod lately but remember that sometime last summer (June or July?) an update caused this behavior, and I have been unable to resolve it.

Basically, every time I quickly press the next/prev track buttons, the player ff/rewinds the current track by ~1 second. The only way to change the track is to go into the playlist and manually select the next track.

To make sure it wasn’t some old code or an obscure setting, I uninstalled the old version completely (including the themes & bootloader) and reinstalled the newest version using rbutil.

I’m currently running r24663 (the current version as of this post). Thanks…

Assuming this was user error as the user has not returned and this is a common mistake.

Check the “Prevent Track Skipping” setting under Playback Settings. I don’t think that uninstalling through rbutil will actually delete your configuration file… if I remember correctly it will only remove the files that *it* created.
