Sony have just released news of a software update that’s now available for their Dash personal internet viewer. Sony has added Shoutcast internet radio, shortcut to access any app with app gallery, and some speed improvements.
Any of the Shoutcast stations can be used with the device’s clock radio feature. The update also includes a shortcut to a thumbnail gallery for faster access to apps installed on the user’s personal channel.
The update installs automatically when the Dash is restarted by unplugging it momentarily then plugging it in again.
Here is an official list of what has been added or changed in Sony Dash Update:
- Shoutcast has been added as an available Internet Radio service. You can also wake up to your favorite Shoutcast station, if you set it as your alarm (just like with other internet radio and video services).
- We’ve added a shortcut to easily access any app in your channel. A new icon on the Command Bar will bring up a gallery of app thumbnails in your channel. Touch the app you want and your dash will skip to it.
- When you add or delete an app in your channel, these changes will appear much faster on your Dash.
