DMP RELEASE NOTES Version 3.07
Date: Sept 14, 2018 File: DMP00307.hex
This release restores the ability to navigate sub-directories in USB and data disc media types.
In addition, there are numerous user interface and general performance improvements and bug fixes.
Ability to read USB and Data Disc sub-directories
The ability to read sub-directories in USB and data discs has been restored but works slightly different from previous releases.
Directory entries no longer appear on the main display and cannot be selected using the FFW/ FRW/ PLAY buttons on the touchscreen. Only music tracks appear on the main display. Sub-directories may be selected from the Track Select menu.
Two new icons have been added to the Track Select menu for USB and data disc media.
The “Up Directory” icon goes up one directory level. If you are in the root directory and this icon is selected, the unit will return to the root directory.
The “Home Directory” icon will always return to the root directory regardless of the subdirectory level the player is on. If there is any confusion about where in the directory hierarchy the player is at, this icon can be used to reset back to the root.
If a directory is empty, nothing will appear in the track name field on the main display and no entries will appear in the Track Select menu. If a directory has sub-directory entries, but no tracks, the main display will be blank but the Track Select menu will display all the sub-directories.
If no media is playing, entering the Track Select menu will display the first entry on the media in the top position (i.e. the list starts with entry one, whether it’s a track or sub-directory). If media is playing, the Track Select menu will center the list around the playing track.
The number of entries in any directory (including the root) is limited to 45. This limit includes both sub- directories and tracks. While more entries can be present on the media, the DMP may encounter errors when reading more than 45 entries per directory.
