Re: Difficulty knowing whether I'm on "record" or "pause"

My biggest concern while recording, is that if it really started after
pressing play.
Last night I was at my son's Christmas program, and I was recording, and I
went to record screen, and I could hear it just fine through the headphones,
and then I pressed the play button to start, and I felt that I had to nudge
my sister-in-law next to me and use hand motions to confirm that the numbers
are changing on the screen. So I think it would be worth a short delay of
some audio sound to indicate that recording has started or stopped.

Well, what I was thinking of probably is not feasible because what I
was looking for is that when I press play button while in a recording
-- and I guess you would have to write the frame to disk to do this
--- then it would say pause. If I am in just the recording screen,
pressing play and not hearing a prompt is not such a big deal to me,
the harder part would be to use the pause/record sequence
effectively. I guess there are always limitations to these things.

The iriver port may be more flexible in that way, I imagine.
