I searched for this particular issue under "browse", "folders", "navigate", but could not find it. Perhaps it's such a common complaint that nobody bothered to post it, as its correction was considered mandatory.

The iRiver H120 is, like Mary Poppins, "practically perfect in every way". Its principal area of imperfection (besides the inability to record from the tuner) is the thoroughly confusing and non-intuitive navigation. I just keep flicking/banging the joybutton until I get where I want to be.
This task depends upon

I don't consider the navigation to be complicated. It's just a matter of realizing the way the navigation is intended. Also, I don't see a reason why this request should have a high severity.

Please read the manual, it explains how things are intended to work. First of all, you should realize that the file browser is the main screen by design. And they do work pretty well once you realized the way it was intended. Also, with rockbox you can actually record from the tuner. Just leave the radio screen with the tuner enabled and set the input source to line.

Find the manual on the daily builds page.

Generally, if you think there are navigation problems, you need to actually specify what they are ("banging the joybutton until I get where I want to be" does not tell us what you EXPECT from it, just how you adapt to not having your expectations.) What do you see as being the actual flaws in the navigation?
