Subject: Re: strange FM recorder behaviour
From: Eric Hart (ehart42_at_bellsouth.net)
I hope this is normal. I've been using rockbox on my fmr for about 6-8
months and this is just exactly the way mine behaves. I never thought that

1.30j) followed by a very brief apperance of the Rockbox logo. After that
there is the Rockbox and I can use it, everything's fine. But when I turn
the device off by holding the OFF button, it turns off suddenly without
saying something like "shutting down".

took longer and there was the comment to be seen.

simply wouldn't boot at all. It seemed rather to be a question of chance
when it would really turn on. Instead it just used to show a flickering
backlight and the leds every 5 seconds. Even charging the batteries would
result in this behaviour. Strangely enough, this FM recorder would always
boot up when the USB cable from my computer was plugged in.
