    Hi all. My main music machines are hd1 and hd5 ( black and still no cracked buttons after 5 months now!!) But I also sometimes use an RH10 minidisc and a Panasonic sv-sd100 flash based player. Both the latter 2 used organic led screens. Absolutely brilliant in dark/indoors etc but.......... as soon as you go outdoors can hardly see a thing! ( Doesnt even have to be bright sunshine - just go outdoors and it's almost impossible to see) I understand that all the Sony flash based players like the 407/507 etc series use oled too. Question - anyone have any tips/ideas? I tried just "cupping my hand over" - which didnt seem to make a lot of difference. Am wondering re any type of screen protector film? ( Would that make it better or worse!?) Or maybe buy a replacement camera eyecup/eyeshade?! ( and use a bit like a jeweller's eyepiece??) Any ideas folks?

    I find the best way in addition to the cup hands is to make like Quasimodo. Sony's OLED's are the brightest of a pretty useless-in-daylight bunch, and the newly discovered message customisation feature for the 400/500 is fun. But give me the iAudio 5 day day. You can actually see the display without staggering across the street hunched over your player in the best "The Bells! The Bells!" fashion.
