I have a few more suggestions for the next firmware update(s):

1.  Countdown timer (5,10,15,20 minuten) for train commuters like me.  That way we don't forget to check what's the next station Wink
2. Switchable volume limiter.  For some reason, the volume of my videos is very low and when switching back to radio or music, it is too high.
3. Volume normalizer to prevent (2).  Guess this could be done by the Zune application at the moment of conversion.

One can dream... Wink

2. A clock
3. Syncronize with Outlook appointments/tasks

Those 2 are HUGE for me

I would also like to see a "manual" option for my EQlizer

I'd love to see Divx/xvid support but I doubt it will be coming as it was never added to the 360. I'd be happy with Native Mpeg4 support.  Also if TV Out is to be usable they should follow Apple's lead and increade the resolution allowed to 640x480.

DivX support is high on my list.

A Clock (though it may seem silly) would be nice to have too.

Games would be cool as well, even just Cell Phone style games.. though I bet they could do one better than that.

Walking from my office to the train station, it occurred to me it would be übercool if the next generation Zune had bluetooth and could be used as a handsfree device...  Just pair it to your phone...  No need to unplug one earphone to make/answer a call! 

I know... Still dreamin'...  Smiley

My biggest one: the ability to put bookmarks down in a song.

I often listen to long ZUNEcasts and get interrupted. When I get back to the ZUNEcast I have to remember where I was and fast-forward to that spot.

When I stop my zune, I power it off, then when you turn it back on you are at the main screen again, press BACK and it will being you to where you were Paused!

I hope that helps you

I would like to be able to download pictures & video directly from my digital camera onto Zune.  Also be able to delete items directly from Zune device without using the computer.
