Same here... playing with the cam and suddenly "Cannot proceed". Thanx for the solution :)

Stupid message, there is enough room for: "Disabled when Direct menu = All" or someting like that.

Phil: Now this is solved can I wander a little and ask you if your are still using CINE4 for what you take into Magic Bullet or do you have more profiles working for you now?

Now, I'm a great believer in RTFM and I had studied the manual quite closely and I'd studied the manual for days before receiving my EX1 and I missed that statement completely.

Well Carroll, Unlike you, I have no patience so I called Sony tech support after about 2 minutes of trying to figure WTF was wrong! They put me on hold for about 5 minutes while they sorted things out and came back with the exact solution that you arrived at. YUP that was the problem. And yes, now I am reading the manual more as well. I am however impressed at your tenacity!
Best, Craig
