This is going to a bit of a "Frustrated consumer" rant, and so may get ugly. So If you retain the childlike mis-conception that our toys are here to please us...you may want to sit this one out... I recently had to give up the ghost on my 15 year old 7.1 audio receiver, and being at a later time of life and more restricted financially, settle for quite a bite less. I bought a $250.00 return for $!79.00 and over all am rather please with my little cheap O" But this has been bugging hell out of me. Along with many other welcome and useful features it has a USB plug. You can put your music files on a usb and listen to your music... Well some of your music... You see unlike ANY USB reader I've come across My new MUSIC RECEIVER will only read 37 music files...with a limit of 1000 files...total in sub folders...So you can't cheat it by putting your music into 37 files... Why would they do that? Also their music player is crap, It can only shuffle one album at a time, can't list or change category, it can only read MP3 formatted on fat 32. As free open source has Players with just a bit more capability one would think a receiver would have at lest a half ass'ed player...wouldn't you? My 2 year old TV has a USB that will player your music, it's crap to.... But then.. its a TV! Not a receiver!! Nearly every music player I come across is crap. PS3, Crap! LG TV, likewise crap, Roku has a better piece of crap than PS3 or my LG and all it claims to be is a very good streamer... My Computer has the only player that really satisfies me. I would hate for anyone to avoid the reviver I bought (OR have to settle for any reviver under$15,000, but life is cruel":O}) Because of my disappointment over their player. Especially as it over performs in it's class nearly everywhere else. So I'll Just say Don't take USB player for granted! ":O} (Thanks I needed that.) Has anyone else come across a USB reader that's limited like this or is some sort of DRM thing?
