Yes the MDC version has its own limitations.
I think your way of navigation has its own benefits but only on iPod.
On USB we have no list of artists/albums. I will check it we can do that though.

Hi,

I still prefer the way it is in usb mode (comparing to the previous cd mode). It allows me to change tracks with the wheel controls and changing folders is done with just 3 steps (turn knob right, press next/last, turn knob left). In Cd mode you had 5 steps...
The way you suggest, it's pretty nice too, apart from the fact that I'd loose the so much expected id3 tags. but if it was available one other button, it could be nice...

I do think, though, that a couple of improvments can be done (hear me Jbors? Very Happy ):

1- tags/folder name in folder mode is essential
2- when folder reahes its end, go to the next folder
3- in random mode, also go to tracks in other folders randomly

... and if you could allow us to presonalize at ones taste with a simple batch file in the root of the usb pen, that would be super.

...my two cents.

Thanks, i have found it, update the box and wow, it works!

Now i have to test, how it works. Until now i only used the usb-port and cd-emulation...
Is a description of the SAT-Mode avaliable?

Thanks!
Thomas

Hi all,

NOTE: Although the arrows in the picture in the first post of this thread point the correct pins, these are not numbered 6 and 10, but 16 and 20. This was confirmed by the GROM helpdesk. The numbers are imprinted on the back of the connector.

If you are just as me and don't want to open the GROM box, and have trouble connecting the pins outside the box, you could do the following.

See attachment.


- Buy an atx extension cable. It cost me 6 (US$ 8).
- Cut cables 16 and 20 in half.
- Re-connect the two parts of cable 20 again, together with the part of cable 16 (the part that is connect to the male connector, the one you put into the box). I used a lustre terminal for this. Pins 16 and 20 are now connected.
- As I didn't want a loose cable, I put the other half of cable 16 in an empty slot of the lustre terminal.[/quote]
