Is it fixed with the new Firmware?
For the blinking LEDs. The initial mapping files had those to blink when track was reaching near its end, but we removed this as it was creating some minor issues.

You can try it yourself..
map the LED_JOG_ALL key as.
songpos_remain 30000ms ? blink : on

and leave the LED_JOG as ..

The LED_JOG_ALL is the issue actually. What it does is to turn all Leds on and at the same time "enable" the LEDs. But if you send ON, and no rotation after that (e.g. track ends and stops at its beginning/load position), you may end up with all LEds on.

The best approach would be the firmware to provide a way to control and change the pattern (which at the moment is only accessed via the unit settings). If such a way existed, we could blink between the 2 patterns without using the LED_JOG_ALL key. I had emailed Denon, but you know, when the bundled software doesnt give you mapping possibilities and the "bug" is not there (they dont blink the Jog Leds either), then firmware updates are hard to happen ;)

The firmware changes are for standalone mode and mic only. No changes to midi or anything to do with VDJ
