    1. You can also type webos20090606 (WebOS launch date) instead of upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart (The "Konami code")
    2. There is a patch available to unhide the Developer Mode icon. Get it either thru WOSQI or Preware, Preware is much easier (no computer needed)

    That is true, but entering in the Konami code is so much more fun! It brings back memories of Life Force and Contra.

    Dan,

    I laughed about the attic trip - I hear ya!

    Thanks for the info - I believe you are correct about the missing files being WMA. I'll have a closer look and likely convert them.

    Last question. Do you have a conversion program you would recommend? I'm probably most interested in speed as the number of files to convert is large (like yours). Obviously speed is pointless if it doesn't also generate a quality result.

    Thanks again!

    I haven't tried converting them, so I'd be interested in finding out what other conversion programs people are using. The audio quality is going to suffer no matter which conversion program you use since you're converting a lossy compressed file into another lossy format.

    Also certain conversion applications may have a hard time converting DMA-protected WMA files to MP3, which many of mine are. However I suspect there are probably applications that do it. One day I'll see what my options are. But in the meantime I've re-purchased a few of my favorite tracks from Amazon.

    I use dbPoweramp Music Converter. I rip all my music to FLAC and then use the Batch Converter to create M4A files for my Pre + and iPods.

    Yeah now that I think about it, I've used dbPoweramp in the past. It works well.

    I wish I would have used FLAC back in the day when I converted all my CDs, but a) I didn't know about it, and b) I probably wouldn't have had the space to store all the files.

    I believe I've used MediaMonkey to convert wma files. MediaMonkey is probably the best choice to use to sync your media anyway.

    Today being the day after Thanksgiving, I added all my Holiday genre music to my Pre Plus today. Previously, I'd had no Holiday music on the phone. After synching, I wanted to play all my Holiday music, but that genre does not show up on the genre list.

    The genres of the music are correct on the device--meaning, when I connect the device via USB mode and add a Genre column in Explorer, the songs show a genre of Holiday. So I have to assume there's some "refresh" process necessary to update the genre list.

    How do I tell Remix or the Pre to update the list of available genres?

    The webOS media indexer is responsible for listing which genres are on the device. If the songs have shown up in the app but the genres haven't, then for some reason the indexer is not reading the genre from the music file tags.

    Try loading up the music files in an application such as Media Monkey or MP3Tag and see if the tags are correct in there.

    Several people have asked me to add Twitter and Facebook integration, so I've done it! The private beta version of the app now has the ability to post the currently playing song to either Twitter or Facebook.

    You can view a demonstration of this feature here:

    I may add this feature to the public beta build, but I'm not sure yet. It depends if I have the time to do it. I'm still working on some other stuff in my private beta build.

    I'll also be posting 2 more videos tomorrow. The first one demonstrates the new Just Type and Quick Action webOS 2.0 features (really cool stuff!) and the second one demonstrates the new super-quick, lag-free song/album/artist scrolling lists with alphabet selectors that react instantly.

    Very cool! Watched the video, and finally watched the autolists video as well. Psyched for the new features!

    One thing that jumped to mind regarding autolists was to have one that has the app randomly select one from among the others. If this is implemented I think the app should, if only temporarily (and if so, with zazz), display which autolist was chosen.

    Also... Is the list of different autolist types reorderable? If not (and if possible) it definitely should be!

    Excited to see exactly what you did with Just Type and Quick Actions. Although I gotta say, the second video kinda intrigues me more, partially because this app is already up toward the top of the list of smooth experiences on my Pre. If you may discuss it: To what do we owe this pleasure?

    I just installed MP3Tag and verified that there are at least some songs on the device with a genre of Holiday, but that still doesn't show up in the genre list. How can I force the WebOS media indexer to rescan?

    By they way, between the time I posted my question and the time you responded, I removed all the songs and re-added them. When I next started Remix, it displayed a message like "rescanning your music library ... if this takes more than 10 seconds, try rebooting your device." It took longer than 10 seconds, but I let it go, and when it was done, the genre list was still wrong. I then restarted, to no avail.

    If it hasn't picked it up after a reboot, then it probably never will. I've also had similar issues with genres not showing up. I'm not sure why the media indexer has problems with some files.

    It's an intriguing idea; however I'm not so sure people would really use a "pick a random autolist" feature.

    Currently all the autolists fit on a single screen without needing to scroll, so I'm not sure there is currently a need to being able re-order them. If I add more in the future, I'll probably add this feature.

    It's due to better programming. To work with the new media indexer in webOS 2.0, I had to redesign the way I populate the song/album/artist/genre/etc. lists. So I took the opportunity to do it the right way and that resulted in the speed improvement.

    Good news folks... I ported over the social networking feature (Twitter and Facebook posting) to the public beta. Version 1.99.28 has been uploaded in PreCentral and should be available in Preware soon. If you can't wait for Preware to update, you can grab the IPK here: http://uploads.precentral.net/homebr...-remix-20-beta

    Also available in this release is the finished Help screen. So check it out in the app menu.

    No ogg vorbis support. I wouldn't expect to see that for awhile, if ever. HTML5 audio in webOS does not have ogg vorbis support. PDK audio does provide it; however I'm not planning on switching to PDK audio in the near future (or maybe ever).
