    My iPlayer (dstwo_iplayer_v1.1_eng) launches and plays files but while changing settings and clicking the 'Check Mark' (Apply) or 'X' (Cancel) Icons with the stylus or pressing the console 'B' (Cancel) and 'A' (Apply) buttons the interface freezes and I must press the power button to reset or exit? Is this a known issue? My two iPlayer directories on the root of the SD card are _ds2Video and _dstwoplug yet the online manual and instructions reference another directory called DSTWO iPlayer and _dstwoplug. The online manual should be updated to reflect the actual names in the download file. Any help with the freezing settings screen would be greatly appreciated in preventing this from occurring.

    Note: I performed a quick format with SD Formatter, copied back the _dstwo, _ds2Video and _dstwoplug on to the root of the microSD card and the player still freezes when saving/exiting the settings menu? Additional testing reveals that the settings do indeed get saved but I cannot exit out of the settings configuration GUI without pressing the power button. Additionally the bottom GUI menu image bar seems to be missing a T (text) and Balloon Icon when compared to the online manual. Well, it actually depends on what image of the manual one is referencing - meaning the online manual needs a revision. I am using the Supercard DSTWO on a DSi XL with the most up to date firmware and OS:

    DSTWO_v1.11_1108_eng
    Firmware_v1.13_eng
    dstwo_iplayer_v1.1_eng
    Alex Rider Stormbreaker THQ Icon

    Can you tell me if the ds2boot file is required on the root as I did not install it at all and the games do play. Is this file required for iPlayer when saving any setting changes for the iPlayer?

    I can toggle between the 'display set' and 'other set' settings of screens of iPlayer using the left and right back of the DSi buttons as well as depressing the bottom two icons and the 'i' icon which displays some help text. The iPlayer settings screen freezes when the 'Check' or 'X' Icons are touched with a stylus as well as when the 'B' and 'A' console buttons are pressed. Are others experiencing the same issue and is there a patch that may solve this problem?

    Thanks!

    Mystery may be solved - the issue continued until an actual music file (mp3) was placed on the MicroSD Card. I can now save and exit the iPlayer settings screens by pressing the A, B console buttons as well as touching the X and CHECK Icons on the screen with a stylus. I will continue testing to validate! If anyone can test this out and post a comment it would be much appreciated.

    Unrelated question - I noticed that the volume setting can exceed 100% and was wondering how high it may be adjusted before blowing the speakers out? Shouldn't there be a set limit to prevent speaker damage?

    Volume setting is limited to 200% or is this the level that blows the speakers? Can the volume setting above 100% actually damage the speakers? Thanks!

    It's limited to 200%, I've put it up to 150% with no problems, but the quality gets noticeably worse as you keep on raising the volume. I leave it at around 115%
