Theoretically yes, and I fully agree on the principle. The problem is :
then they come and ask here and all those clever developers are so kind
and patient that they answer more often than they say "read the manual"
and during that time THEY DO NOT CODE ALL THOSE THINGS THAT WE ALL MISS
SO DESPERATELY!!! ;-)

OK, I better understand. Personally I expect "Full down" to shut off
completely so I did not understand. In fact it is the last step that
seems bigger than one might expect . And then also, why "Full down" on
Line In does not shut off the same? Probably the same reason as Linus
mentioned. But not a big problem actually : if I really wanted to make
sophisticated recordings the Jukebox keys would be my biggest problem by
far (especially with my "right" key which is a bit lazy) and I would
invest in some (light) sound mixing equipment... :-)

By the way, I have a 2nd question : have you copied your list of
requirements to the Archos site ? After all, THEY are those who got your
money... ;-)

Bye. Jean.
