I just remember first buying the product and seeing that it would do music visualizations
The 'jumping' line that they have in Listen/Sonata is a visualization. Just not a terribly good one
(I'm presuming you're looking for the type of ones you see in Windows Media player etc.).
They do have an API exposed for the visualization (VizData) but I don't think theres been a huge interest to develop 'proper' visualizations by 3rd party developers (though there was one simple visualization developed).
Since we have no official release that allows ps decoding, I would say that the promises of the ORIGINAL release over 2 YEARS ago are not met.
By this you mean a non-beta release? (The beta does support PS of course). Yeah, I too would like the firmware 2 to be stabilised/released.
This is not even counting what was promised for release 2 of the firmware like soundbridge feature parity
Slightly off-topic, but its sort-of amusing to see some people in the Soundbridge forums complaining about some of the better music related features on the PhotoBridge (which has much better music format support).
better stability, etc.
Yup, totally agree.
