View Full Version : NP3900 Suggestions: More Alarms, bookmark folders

08-09-2011, 03:03 PM

I just received my Philips NP 3900 and soundwise I'm quite satisfied. I want to use it primary as an alarm clock wking me with my MP3 collection.

Is there any chance to add more than 1 alarm? My wife and I have different wakeup times each day and it is quite cumbersome to switch alarms. Currently I have to:
- stop the music
- click alarm menu
- click ok twice for music (possible to switch off those annoying messageboxes?)
- change the time
- click ok to select only once (I would really like to select only weekdays, but this results in more ok-clicking for annoying messageboxes)
- go to sleep again

Please implement a way to quickly switch alarms. Even my mobile phone is more flexible.

Another problem which results in a lot of unneccessary clicking is selecting which album I want to play. I have organized not only my music, but also pictures and videos on my Windows Home Server, all served via UPnP. When I click on Media Library, I always have to
- Select the server
- Select music
- browse the whole directory structure

Please add a way to bookmark folders as favorites. This would help a lot.

Looking forward for a new firmware ;-)

Well, multiple alarms were already suggested when the NP3500 was introduced on the market.
See the Streamium cafe forum.
When you buy such high class product, at a high class price, you would expect several alarms, isn't it? Or you need to have 2 NP3900 in your bed room?

Finally, I am very satisfied with the NP3900 as I already was with my 2 NP3500' and NP2500. The sound is just excellent. It is just a pity that Philips does not go the last mile for what regards the usability.

I would also recommend Skifta to control through Android (smartphone) all my NP devices.
