Seems like the bitrate isn't to blame after all: All the songs which have
the problem contains a id3v2 tag. The timer works like a charm when I remove
the tags.
Anyway the timer dosen't always dissapear. Usually it shows the number 71582
as the total track playtime. When i skip between the faulty tracks sometimes
the timer dissappears never to return until reboot.

I've thought about it. But unforturnally I'm quite busy at the moment. I've
got a deadline at work on Monday. :-(
But after that I would love to give it a try. It shouldn't be too difficult
i reacon. The only thing needed is properly to set some register values in
the MAS and to add a appropriate menu-option.
Another thing: It seems like the mic. and the analog input is hardwired to
different ports on the MAS. I guess that this means that no external
(unamped.) mic. can be connected to the recorder without a hw mod. Can
anybody correct me in this matter?
