The backgroundmode was the Problem I reported a few days ago.
If I switch to Livemode everything works nearly ok.
Remember:
If I use backgroundmode black, I cannot navigate back in the playlists 
and 
the first two seconds were skipped of every track .
In livemode the first two seconds were skipped but nothing of the other 
tracks. 
This Problem did not exist with the previous firmware.

Thanks
Halim
