You're much welcome!

We're all in that position. You just have to reduce sleeping to a minimum. B-]

Most of the current bleeding-edge iRiver dev is being discussed on IRC, or
simply just researched at will.

There has not been much sound research yet on driver level (I know Dave
Chapman is checking out codec sources/APIs) so I don't think you'd duplicate a
lot of efforts if you dug into that.

And no, there's no emulator to use. We have a simulator for rather high-level
Rockbox code, and then we have the target. One outstanding task to fix is to
create a gdb stub for the target so that we can debug it over the serial port.

Join us on IRC, if only for a short while, and I'm sure we can coordinate.
