Subject: Fwd:Jukebox Recorder stops working after 36 hours or so
From: Chris Holt (
Date: 2003-07-16

Thought you guys might be interested in one of Archos' wonderful tech
support responses.

I pointed the poor soul to the rockbox site and told him that he would
probably have much better luck with it.

Subject: [ARCHOS] Jukebox Recorder stops working after 36 hours or so

> I purchased a Jukebox Recorder to be used with our Music On Hold part
> of our phone system. The plan was for it to run indefinitely plugged

> said that they don't support it being used 24/7, I said fine then I
> just need to do a return and reimburse me the purchase price. He said
> he can't do that since it's only supposed to be used as a portable unit

> Needless to say I'm extremely disapointed with Archos for making a
