Smile New firmware upgrade today

Dear All:

Sorry for the delay. The new firmware upgrade will be posted on our website (www.theEZreader.com) today or latest tomorrow. It is only for the Pocket PRO now (later for the EZReader Basic).

The upgrade gives you:

1. Support for Danish, Swedish, and Thai languages and adds a Thai Font.
2. Turns the scroll wheel into a music volume adjuster when you are reading a book and playing music at the same time.
3. Adds a visual clock to the status bar between the page and battery charge life icons.

To adjust the clock after you do the upload:
1. Press the large "OK" button.
2. Press the number six button to bring up "settings"
3. Press the number five button to bring up Time & Date
4. Notice the line under the hour.
5. Control whether you wish to adjust the time or the date using the left side page advance/regress buttons.
6. Control the underline with the "9" and "0" buttons
7. Type in the time or the date using the appropriate number buttons (for example, if it is 2:59 hit the "0", "2", "5", "9" buttons in that order and hit the large "OK" button).

To adjust the music volume while reading a book... do "NOT" press in on the "nub" on the scroll wheel... just move the scroll wheel "up" to increase volume and "down" to decrease volume!

But that's how I turn the page when reading currently. Is it a timing thing, i.e. if you hold it up or down for a long time does it change the volume instead of turning the page?


Good news on the firmware update though - keep 'em coming

I also have gotten used to using the jog wheel to switch pages, avoiding the 0 and 9 because they change function when hyperlinks are present and it takes me a few to figure out why the page did not turn.

I think he said this ONLY happens if you are playing an MP3 while reading. So, don't play an MP3 and this will turn pages. Of course, I am assuming here by the language in Robert's post.

Turning the page vs volume

Dear jusmee:

When you are playing music and reading together, the scroll wheel automatically changes to voume control. To advance/regress pages you will have to use the other page turn buttons. When you are just reading, the page advance/regress function will return to the scroll wheel.

I would have liked it differently... where the user had the choice... and am hoping that the engineers will still do that. Such is the problem of having a factory 7,000 miles away. They sometimes promise one thing but change it when it comes out.

I am very pleased with this upgrade... but am always trying to improve things.

As would I. I like using the scroll wheel to change pages.

Anyway, thanks for the clarification.

double ditto, that's how I like to change pages too.

At the firmware update screen it is currently saying:


Quote:

DESCRIPTION:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a005e'

Invalid use of Null: 'Replace'

/html/support_firmware.asp, line 267
I guess it is still in the middle of being updated.

Thanks Robert for accommodating Thai language support in the new firmware, eventually!

Really great support.
