Hi Martin,

I'm glad you mentioned MediaBox here as somehow that had passed me by in my quest for a media player that will do what I want and not drain my battery (which most of them do) when it's idle (a test it's passed with flying colours overnight). And the fact that it even understands FLAC means I can cut out the convert-to-ogg step of the script I use to copy stuff to my Nokia.

Just a couple of things that would improve this impressive player a little more - it would be very useful if a playlist I've populated were saved to disc so that I don't have to re-populate it after a restart (saving the position would be a bonus, but less important) and it could do with a way to control the volume (being full-screen means the normal volume control isn't quickly available).
Of course it might already have these features and I haven't found them yet :-)
