    I just purchased an Escient Fireball and have loaded most of my CDs into it. A couple of questions have popped up along the way:

    1. I bought a 15" rackmount LCD (not a touchscreen) so that I could navigate the Fireball without turning on the bigcreen TV. Unfortunately, the image is fairly soft -- according to the LCD the resolution is 640x480. The LCD can display 1024x768 -- is there a way for the Escient to output a sharper picture?

    2. The "scan" function doesn't seem to work on CDs, just on MP3s. Is this a limitation of the s-link used with my Sony jukeboxes? It would suck to lose ability to fast forward/review.

    3. I tried to rip some songs to the internal hard drive and it worked fine except for when I chose the "uncompressed" (wav) setting. I get the message "Unknown error." Has anyone else had any trouble ripping at the uncompressed setting?

    Thanks!

    You might try posting this question at remotecentral.com in the custom installers forum. I suspect one of those guys can help.

    Brian,

    Unfortunately, I can't answer any of your questions.

    But I am glad to know that I am not the only person in Chicago with a Fireball. How cool are these??!! I love mine. My only beef is getting to a specific CD. I've got 900 CDs in two changers and if I want to go to a CD by The Who, I'm hitting the page down button for 20 minutes....

    Love the Fireball!
