I just bought a NP3500 and I'm debating whether to keep it or give it back.
I have a very large music library and the stream I'm using comes from an avm fritzbox.
When I search for music with the NP3500 I can choose between songs, artists, genre, albums and playlists. After choosing e.g. playlists my problems start. The NP3500 allows me only to search with the first letter. When I'm searching e.g. for "Amy Grant", I have to search for the letter "A" and then scroll through about 100 playlists (over ABBA, AC/DC......) 'til I reach the playlist I'm searching for. Scrolling is very slow and when I hold the down-button on the remote control, it doesn't scroll further but shows another letter to search for. So I have to push the down-button again and again and again and again..... With this slow search I can't reach the playlist I'm looking for.
The "search"-button doesn't help. The NP3500 doesn't search for playlists with the entered keyword but for all songs with the entered keyword. And then only some songs with the keyword in the filename appear. There should be hundreds of more songs in the list that it doesn't show.
With this limited search-function the np3500 is useless for me.
Can anybody help me? Is there another function I don't know or is this an "user error"??

Thanks for your help.
