Yes, that's the way to go. You probably don't have an ajbrec.ajz for the
archos firmware because you have the newest version in rom. You can download it
at the archos homepage, like Frank wrote. If you have a recorder model,
version 1.27d downloadable from archos is the same as version 1.28 in rom. Just
put it on your jukebox, but don't rename it to ajbrec.ajz, take anything else
ending with .ajz.
