Please see new SILVERLINE manual for switch config

1) the DIP switches are set to the OFF (up) position to utilize the DICE-specific features like text display and search by Artist/Album/Playlist. If desired, you have the option to set the switches to the ON position and have the iPod in "Simple iPod" mode, with only fast forward/rewind and next/previous track commands.

Most people will want to remain in DICE mode.
Thanks for the prompt response Tom. Please see the SILVERLINE manual (see page 6), which mentions two configurations for the iPod dip switches:
Locked Mode: OFF ON (i.e., switches are up down)
iPod Mode: ON ON (i.e, switches are both down)

The option of both switches OFF is not mentioned in the new manual, even though this is how it was shipped and it was how the locked mode was set in the pre-SILVERLINE dice. Does the new SILVERLINE manual have a typo?
