  3. Helpful BETA tester Feedback: FYI—>

    My black box never indicated there was any content there. I was hooked up from Wednedsay night until Friday morning.
    The “flashing light” never flashed the way it did the 1st time you sent info to us with this.

    I disconnected everything and gave it a break. Man that thing gets hot.(Besides, its 103 over here and I shut off everything putting out heat.)

    Now that I see 2 folks have responded, I plugged back in. (Fri evening 11:00 pm PDT.)

    The red light on the back is functioning properly, telling me I’m connected and still no flashing– indicating new content.

    For the hell of it. I plugged my gig stick onto the usb connection, and the blue light circle THEN began flashing and the gig stick appears to be retrieving info….

    Yes, there are new files there and they downloaded to the usb stick properly.

    Is there a problem with my box that there was no flashing indicator of new content?

    How will I know in the future there’s content unless we get an email heads up?

    Thanks, Cheryl

  4. Never mind…. I just figured out that every time I re-start the black box, I have to re-dock my stick to get the indicator to flash when there’s new content there. Thanks Paul. ;-))

    “July is almost halfway done.”

  7. My base station content indicator did not flash the next day as the message indicated (“new content coming). It did flash a couple days later but will not stop flashing even after leaving player plugged in for 24 hours. Finally disconnected and checked via PC for content. The Black Box Beta folder is empty so not sure what I’m supposed to find there. Since I received the unit, it’s only flashed 3-4 times and aftwards, I’ve not noticed anything new on the player. FYIm I’m using the Podcast Secrets MP3 player you sent me.

  8. Addendum to last post: the base station content indicator has not stopped flashing since it started as indicatd in my previous message – and nothing new was found in the MP3 player.
