    Post things you would want to see included in the future FW updates.

    - Clock / Alarm clock
    - Real-time adjusting of the screen orientation
    - Bookmarking wherever you want in a track
    - 100+ songs playlists
    - being able to add more than 5 tracks to existing playlist
    - AVLS disable/enable working / sound volume limiter (EU Models)

    Thats it for now. I'll post more if I think of something else.

    Edit: funny how how messed out the model name. :suicide: NW-HD5, of course.

    what do you mean by 100+ songs playlists? Is there currently a limit to the amount of playlists or the amount of tracks in a playlist? I never noticed this.

    :cool:

    I'll try it now and get back to you.

    Just tried it and you are right - you can't have more than 99 songs in a playlist which is the biggest load of crap! Can Sony provide is with ONE reason please - it is funny, I can't for the life of it think of any...

    This wishlist will only mean anything if we also pass our thoughts to Sony - so here I go, emailing again... :)

    The instructions say that the inbuilt playlists on the HD5 can have a max of 100. I've not tried this in practice. Playlists downloaded from SS are unlimited. I have one with close to 300 songs on it.

    What do you mean by: being able to add more than 5 tracks to existing playlist?

    My wish - being able to queue up tracks to a 'play-next' list and adding different tracks to playlists while listening to a one song. Real playlists on the go, basically.

    Hmm, are you sure? Did you have the tracks already on the HD5? You're not trying to use your group thing again are you? :) I posted full instructions on how to do it somewhere before, i'll see if I can track that down again when i get home from work.

    yeah realtime playlists would be cool, that way u can spend a few mins when starting a journey and just leave it playing.

    No here is what I did -I formatted my HD5 ( there is not much on it yet and whatever I can put on it is already selected into playlists and can be transferred back in 30 seconds).

    I then went to my library in SS and clicked on the Create/Edit Playlist button. I then created a new playlist called Test, whilst on the left my screen I selected 'All Tracks'.

    I then highlighted track 1 - 200 and dragged them over to my Test playlist. They moved over in a couple of seconds. I then closed my Create/Edit Playlist button and clicked on Transfer Atrac Device. My HD5 appeared on the right.

    I then selected Playlists on the left and dragged the Test playlist over to the HD5 - it copied all the tracks in it to the player but didn't keep the name of the playlist - it just vanished. This is how I transferred all my other playlists - but never realised this as none of them had more than 100 tracks in ever and the name of the playlist always ended up transferring with the tracks.

    Cheers, Johann :)

    Odd then, from what you say it sounds like the tracks were not already on the unit - I can only assume it did what you describe becasue of this.

    what I have done in the past is: transfer all of my music. Go through the create playlist sequence that you describe but then instead of dragging the list accross to the HD5 I select auto transfer and make sure the playlists are ticked. And it works fine. Oh, one thing - have you clicked the drop down arrow above the HD5 list to just show playlists? I know it's obvious but just trying to eliminate things, you know...

    that does mean the UK leaving the EU which is easier said than done....but removing the volume limit only involves a few button presses + navigating... I didn't find it too difficult, so no complaints.

    do like the other 5 requests though... :)

    I think it stands for Auto Volume Limiting System (or something very similar) - if you have it ticked on you would never be able to bump the volume up loud enough to damage your hearing. :hiya:

    I know I agree - but believe it or not, there are actually people out there that care more about their hearing than their music! :D
