So there is FM radio support in the Studio 10? In AJB 6000s? What is
"radio support"? Does it mean that you can plug a radio into the line in?
(I know the answers to the preceeding. I was just trying to illustrate the
confusion neophytes might have). You have to remember that not every person
reading the manual will know about models other than their own. They may
never have heard of an FM Recorder. Clarifying when a feature only applies
to a specific model reduces confusion and should be done wherever possible.

Okay. I don't have it so all that I could comment on what the game name.

Yet. Better to plan for the future than be caught off-guard by it. And,
again, it doesn't hurt to clarify and not assume that the reader has started
reading on page one in a linear manner. Changing it to "when you hold the
Recorder's F1 key during start" solves the problem.
