H140; Filetree browsing,

When browsing through my music collection if I want to go back one level a quick left joystick click is required, the problem is that this has to be really quick, if the left action is slightly longer than "quick" the left click action then takes the browser to root, this is annoying as the intention was to only go back one level, could the time delay for left click back to root be increased please ?.
This task depends upon

This sounds more likely to be a hardware fault.

But to be clear, you haven't posted what revision you've tested this on.

I'm using the latest revision.

My H140's joystick is a bit "looser" than new but it works fine in all directions. I haven't played any games with it and have always been gentle with it, it's rated for 50000 cycles so I doubt it's a malfunctioning joystick.

To me its the time delay back to root which doesn't have sufficient delay.

"Latest Revision" means very little. Do you mean latest from when you posted this task, or latest from when you posted the comment? Do you mean daily or SVN current? Please, just post the revision number, that's why I asked for a revision rather than just the yes/no question of "are you using the latest?"

Paul you're obnoxiously pedantic as ever, why couldn't you just have asked, "please state the exact revision number".

the revision that I'm running is r17806

Well, with 17812 I don't experience any more sensitivity than Rockbox has ever had in that area. Again, I suspect it's a hardware issue. The delay is the same as it is for any "long" press of a button.

Looks like I'll have to modify the code myself.

Thanks for looking into it.

for anyone thats interested in modifying the Left to root action, comment the code as follows

comment out any line that has ACTION_TREE_ROOT_INIT in apps/keymaps/keymap-h1x0_h3x0.c

Thanks to JdGordon for this info.
