I’m not impressed by the Zune software. However, I was able to put some audio and video files in it so I could toy with the device.
The unit itself operates well. It’s not an Ipod, so forget the Ipod-like interface. Still, it’s easy to navigate.
I turned on the radio side, and once I tuned to a station I heard audio. Then I heard it switch to the digital stream. (This station does not have its analog and digital time aligned.)
I tuned to another station in the market that runs HD1 and HD2. The display shows the frequency with an HD1 under it. There’s an HD2 to the right of that. Touching HD2 brings it up.
Sliding across the face scans to the next station up or down.
Operationally, it’s easy to manipulate. It sounds decent. Digital reception in the interior of my office building was dicey. The radio switched to analog several times.
I’ll take it around with me and experiment with the radio more.
