RE: iRiver audio hardware

The HD certainly would disturb the FM reception, and whilst this isn't
too much of a problem on the current FMR that I have, it would be
whilst recording, as the HD would have to be accessed regularly to
save the recorded data. I had an edigital HD mp3 player, and the same
would be true for that.

Unfortunately yes. The internal audio bus in the ColdFire CPU is only
20
bits. The 4 low bits are always 0 on the S/PDIF output.

I haven't confirmed on the PCB, but I believe the FM radio can be
recorded. Rumours say that the function is disabled because the hard
drive disturbs the FM reception.
