Anybody using Sony's Digital Paper for sheet music?

I would like to ask those who use DPT-RP1 or DPT-CP1 to read sheet music:

Could anybody with new firmware released on May 30th 2018 confirm please if you can (or cannot) connect the Bluetooth page turner / foot pedal to turn pages.

Firmware release note does not mention Bluetooth connectivity between Sony's Digital Paper and wireless page turners.

No Bluetooth connection is possible to anything except to the computer Sony app (not phone). No Bluetooth device (e.g., keyboard, page turner) is supported and Sony hasn't said when, or even if, they ever might. Also, the firmware does not support single page, landscape mode or turning pages in cropped ("zoom") mode, so it's not useful for music.

Moreover, the firmware upgrade seems to have bricked my RP1 after two days. [Edit. Looks like a freeze and hard crash, requiring reset through the pin hole, which is near the power button. All recent annotations were lost.]

The mobile app only sends PDF files between the phone and the Sony. It's also a pain to use, does not support Bluetooth, and involves many steps for each session.

Thank you for sharing your experience with Digital Paper.

If you listen to techblogwriter podcast episode 277 from June 13th 2017 at 18:32-19:35min you can hear Daniel Albohn from Sony US talking about importance to enable Bluetooth connectivity between Sony’s Digital Paper and wireless page turners for musicians:



After the whole year you will hear same person Daniel Albohn talking about the same matter at the podcast episode 538 from May 31th 2018 at 21:11-21:46min:



It looks like Sony's US Digital Paper team has zero influence over Japanese management.

Thanks for your research. Appears Sony's marketing strategy is to avoid comprehensive review and ignore customers' direct questions on its support page (e.g., "What is your timeline for fixing/adding X so I can use the product as advertised?").

Well, to be be fair, I doubt that the marketing and customer service people at Sony know more than we do. And after the loooooong time it took to get a “jump to page” function, I wouldn’t hold my breath for further software improvements
