any new functions?

Is the volume wheel only for volume control or does it allow scrolling through lists / menu items? Like a gigantic jog dial, that would be a great idea for nowadays big music libraries.

For those familiar with Halo operation, two questions:

1. From Halo directly, can a user initiate the “Timer” function? For clarity, this is the function within the B&O app that allows a user to tell systems, among other things, “Go to Standby after x minutes.” (I use this to listen to music as I fall asleep and set my bedroom system to turn off automatically after 10min when I’m asleep.)

2. From the Halo directly, can a user manipulate the “Alarm” function for a given device as it operates within the B&O app?

Thank you!

Just thought I’d give this a bump again in case anyone has familiarity with the above. :)

It’s a no to both questions, unfortunately. No alarm/timer can be controlled direct from the Halo.
