iPod firmware 1.2 - Page 2

post #41 of 81
The game is no longer hidden, it's in the extras menu. At first I got scared when I couldn't access the game from the legal screen. I wonder if they'll add new games at some point, it would be awesome if they let developers write games for the iPod, but I don't see that happening any time soon.

Thanks!

I had just assumed it would get the time from whatever computer it syncs with. I just started looking through the settings, and there it was

I just got the 1.2 update, everything works on the original 5 gb iPod. (including the clock) The one thing that doesn't work is that different songs show up in the most played smart playlist compared to the iTunes one. Once iCalc is released the iPod will almost become the Apple PDA. What do you think is next for the iPod, audio input?

No.

MP4!!!!!!!!! That couldn't be too hard, could it? Since SJ went on and ON and ON about it at MWNY! How about an encoder for iTunes too?

Audio input, heck yea! for the next harware rev, I hope! That is sorely missing.

This is so cool. You can drag-n-drop calendar events from Entourage to the Calendars folder, and they are in the iPod's calendar.
post #46 of 81
I guess that means iCal is compatible with Entourage and Outlook file formats!

Is MP4 not on the iPod because of licensing or what?

I see this installer is OS X only...
I can understand this considering many features are OS X specific like iCal and iTunes 3.

We're not going to have a "y2k" kind of problem with the iPod's clock. It goes up to Dec 31 65,500 something... I would guess 65536. Don't ask, how I figured it out....
post #49 of 81
another thing:

For what's the Alarm there ? I understand it will be to remind me of something on my calendar, but the thing which disturbs me is that i can set the alarm to three different modes.

-On
-Silent
-Off

I understand on and off, but for what do we need Silent? I mean that would assume that if Alarm is set to ON, your iPod would say something to you...

I also noticed that in the Legal screen are some new additions...

I understand that will be something used for Audible.net because it is a Codec for compressing voice.

Tip: You don't have to wait for iCal or even Jaguar to use the calendar function. You can drag events to your iPod "Calendar" folder directly from Entourage.
post #51 of 81
I suspect "silent" alarm means some kind of blinking indication on the iPod rather then a click or noise?

Just another note on the calendar function... it looks like it uses the vCal format, so if you don't have Entourage, you can go get Palm Desktop for the Mac from <a href="http://www.palm.com" target="_blank">http://www.palm.com</a> for free and use that, export your DateBook to a vCal file and it works fine on the iPod.

Thank god I checked on here, I was really beginning to wonder what the *heck* it was doing.

"Updating ID3 tag fields on every song?"
"Adding field info for Sound Check, etc?"
"Why on earth is this taking so long?"

Nice to see some added feedback for desktop use though.

Does anybody know if the iPod will let you rate the song with the new My Rating? I assume it would, but I couldn't see anything about it on Apple's Website, and I don't have my iPod yet (I'm waiting for the Apple Store in Palo Alto to get the 10gig in stock...)

Thanks.

There doesn't seem to be a way to set the starting sound level as was in previous firmware. Anybody know where it is?

I made it work now. It's pretty cool.

It only makes a "BEEEP" but that's enough, it even *wakes* my iPod from sleep!
post #65 of 81
I realize that the iPod is not designed, originally, as a super time keeping device, but I'm a bit disappointed in the new clock feature. I have to reset the clock almost everytime I reset, turn-off, or unplug my iPod. Every other setting seems to remain intact.
It is a minor complaint. However, the alarm and calendar features seem less useful when I'm not confident my iPod knows the time. If I must check and re-check it all the time, I might as well keep as tight a check on my events and appointments.

Anyone else notice the iPod clock is off badly?
post #66 of 81
Obviously your clock function is not working properly. I have not had to reset it since I first did 3 days ago. The time and date/month/year are accurate. Somethings wrong there Donny. (Maybe you should ask Marie for help).

at the beginning (read: after the 1.2 update) my iPod couldn't keep the time at all. now, after two days, he does keep it perfectly. even after I mounted it on my mac, the time was still fine. I think he just needs some time to display the time correctly.
post #68 of 81
Yeah...I agree with you. My iPod seems to be keeping time much better now. However, it still is quirky when I restart the iPod (holding play/pause & menu for 2 secs). Also, it is off when I plug and then unplug from my Mac sometimes, but I have not had this problem occur lately.

It seems allowing the iPod to sleep helps. I guess the settings are saved upon going into sleep. However, it does not seem to save (or not everything...ie...time) when I turn it off (hold play/pause button 2+ secs...).

What can I say...I'm picky <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

Honestly, it is a great update, and the iPod is coming of age amazingly well and fast.
post #69 of 81
In order to keep proper time the clock must run all the time, even when you turn off the iPod. (I wonder what amount of drain it has on the battery).

Houston, we have a problem...

I installed the 1.2 Firmware on my old 5 gig iPod. That went fine... Then I started to play with the clock.......

I set the clock up and then went to set up the date.... The year said 2001, so I wanted to see what would happen if I went to the year "0"....

Real smart, I know... anyways... I get to 1 and then let the year go to 0... and then all of a sudden the # jumps up to 3657 (or something like that i cant rememebr the exact #) the only problem is that it now takes 10 "clicks" to move the #'s up or down 1.... so the # is really 36570... ok. so I figure, no problem, I'll just scroll up until I reach 0 again... no such luck.... I went to 3700(0) before I gave up.... the thing wouldnt go back to 0... what should I do? it will take forever to go all the way down to 2002 from 37000..... i tried resetting the settings and stuff like that... outside of a firmware restore...(which I'm not even sure will work) what can I do to get the year back to 2002??? <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

[quote] As an experiment, I wanted to see how far into the future the year could go. It went past 2300 without a problem, so I reversed and went all the way down to 0000... and rolled over to the 34000 range (though you only see the first 4 digits in the settings)... and didn't roll back up. I tried going as high as year 38000, at which point I figured better to wipe the unit rather than risk wearing out the scroll wheel on my 5 GB (not to mention my scrolling finger).

Resetting settings doesn't reset the date, so I restored the 1.1 firmware and updated to 1.2 again. Presto--this reset it to Jan 1 2002.

[edit] of course, now I read that a hard reset probably would've done the trick too, without having to erase my iPod.

so, a hard reset is necessarily...
post #72 of 81
Well, after 4 days the clock lost its time and date after I plugged the iPod in for battery recharging. Must be a bug or something.

Hold "Menu" and "Play/Pause" button at the same time.
If you hold FF & REW during boot, it'll go into Diagnostic mode.

Hey guys, I installed the 1.2 update last week, it is really cool...I do have one question...

Has anybody else noticed a **significant** difference in battery life. Not for the better, I might add. I was easily getting the 10 hours before, now it seems to die on me after about 5-6, and will not hold a full charge, even when charging all night. Anyone else having these issues?? Thanks. <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

i couldn't get more than an hour w/ the 1.1 release, so i have other problems to deal with.

Huh? More than an hour?? Must be some pretty big headphones that you are using. I think that part of my problem is, that I bought some Sony MDR-7509 studio headphones, they seem to suck up the juice much more quickly than the lil' earbuds. But DAMN do they sound good!!!
post #79 of 81
Hey could someone explain the 'Sound Check' thing to me. I know in iTunes it is suppose to equalize the sound levels, but it sure isn't working on my iPod. Levels are -- as before -- all over the place. It is set to 'on' but is there something else I should be doing? Has anyone here noticed that this feature is affective?
