    It seems, happily, to have solved my problem with the syncing calendars and contacts. I am pleased.

    Album art in Cover Flow is better/fixed . If you scrolled too fast, it had a problem keeping up, artwork didn't load fast enough.

    iPod Classic 1.0.2 Update!

    Since it doesnt look like's its been mentioned here before, thought I'd let y'all know! It's a 56.6MB update.

    Does anyone know what all is included? Hopefully it updates the click wheel's firmware, mine is kind of undersensitive (or is that just mine?). Hopefully the menu's were reupdated to be even more seemless.

    Edit: Apparent Nano's are updated, too, so my guess is that they are the same update. Feel free to merge, sorry!!

    I got it!

    I haven't played around with it completely yet but the first, major fix is that compilation artists no longer appear in the artists field!

    Also, compilation albums now appear at the very end of coverflow and coverflow itself seems to load the covers quicker.

    Anyone else notice anything else yet?

    I just did the update, and I found coverflow to be smoother, and the menus to be much snappier.

    another fix: when the ipod is plugged in, the screen turns off when it isn't actively in use (say, during charging)

    They've fixed cover flow and the sync screen thank god. It now seems to display Compilations correctly...

    This update is the best thing to happen to my 80 GB classic since I put U2 on it.

    Menu navigation is quicker, compilation album art is displayed only once in cover flow, and that ridiculous capital letter p seen when connected has been replaced by a clock. Also, the word "syncing" (which I'm not even sure is a real word) has been changed to "synchronizing."

    Another thing I noticed is that Ms. Pac-Man now has a pretty little thumbnail picture next to its title, just like the games originally included with the iPod (iQuiz, Klondike, and Vortex). Previously all that was displayed was a blue dice graphic. The other two games I've purchased, however, (Tetris and Sudoku) simply have black squares next to their titles (anyone else notice this?).

    Yes, I purchased Ms. Pacman and Tetris myself tonight and added them to the iPod. Ms. Pacman shows a nice graphic but Tetris is a black box, sort of like there is just nothing there. The game still plays fine.

    Not entirely true. Take a look at the artist field when you browse over compilations. Instead of saying "various artists" as it should do, and does in iTunes, it just takes the artist from the first song on the compilation at displays that instead. File a feedback comment to apple.

    Yay! Coverflow works as it should now except there's still an issue with compilations and multiple artwork, but I can live with that for now. All the menus are much snappier too.

    The sound is definitely much brighter than before. It seemed kind of bass(y) before.

    No 'P' in the menu bar when syncing now there's the clock and have you noticed when you eject it says "It is now safe to eject" much sooner than before?

    Very happy with this update :D

    Well looky look!!!

    They have done the right thing.. You can now select video out without having to buy Apple's expensive cable.

    You can change the video out to Off, Ask, On

    Go to Videos -> Settings

    Previously you needed to plug it into an Apple Universal Dock to get this to work.

    Huh, and I spent £20 on a dock yesterday... I day too early. (It could have been worse, if the Apple store had the expensive £70 cable, I may have ended up buying that)

    Agreed. while fine for Albums by a single artist, for compilation albums, the tag/field that needs to be displayed is the Album Artist field, not the Artist field.

    Certainly an inprovement though over the last firmware version.

    Also when in coverflow on a compilation, you can only see the track names and not the artist.

    Again, while for a single artist album this would be fine, but for a compilation, you may be looking for a certain artist and not just a track name

    Does the TV Out work on the Nano now?

    I have applied the update on my classic and now have the option to select TV out (On, Off, Ask).

    Previously, this option was locked to Off, unless the iPod was plugged into an official Apple Universal Dock.

    about enabling video?

    is the firmware enabling video through the headphone jack?

    thank you.

    I didn't notice a single pause in the menus when I had music playing. If I scrolled really really fast in coverflow, I would finally get to a point where I'd have to wait a sec for the album art to load, but the actual scrolling through coverflow is smooth as a baby's bottom.

    The TVOut option can now be set to On or Ask, but it still doesn't work with my non-Apple cable which was advertised to work with the Nano 3g. When you try to view video or photos, it says to plug in the video cable, which I already have.

    Apparently the rumors about Apple locking it down are true. Sad if Apple is really doing this to milk more money for accessories rather than having a good technical reason.

    Good to know. Maybe I didn't need to have got the touch after all :p.

    Cover Flow is a little bit faster, but is far from fixed. When will it show Album Artist rather that Artist? Also, every time I sync my nano, it resets the main menu, why?

    This sounds like a great update! I'm running it now...

    Edit: Up and running now and it really does fix a heck of a lot of issues. Nice work apple!

    Awesome update!

    both menu navigation and cover flow feels much snappier. no lag att all.
    can anyone confirm that tv-out has been enabled without the need for a universal dock? that would bee sooo great :)
