Default How do you get back to the now-playing screen?

If I go to, say the settings menu the music continues to play, but I haven't found any way to get back to the now-playing screen.

Also, is there any way to make the player re-shuffle the music list. I've got my Fuze on shuffle, but if I start playing from scratch I get the tracks in the same order as before.

Press the Home button (small button on right front). May have to press twice.

Re Shuffle....

I pressed Home, then Play All and song 240 started playing. I pressed Home and then Play All and song 427 started. Are they in a different order? I don't know how to tell.

I think the player picks a random number smaller than the number of songs, then plays the song that it has given that number. What that means is that several songs may play more than once before all the songs are played.

It would be nice to have a real shuffle feature, where all the songs must be played once before any song plays a second time.

It is probably a pseudo-random number from 1 to n where n is the number of songs.

This is probably due to a poorly-written pseudo-random-number-generating algorithm.

One must note the difference between random and shuffle. For those individuals who want shuffle implemented correctly, there is always http://www.rockbox.org/.
