Sadly it seems the H120/H140 hardware can't playback audio at 48Khz, so
Rockbox will need to do software resampling to 44.1KHz to get that to work.

And yes, Rockbox will map ".mp2" and ".mpa" to the MPEG codec.

A have a lot of the same files (48KHz MP2 from digital satellite radio),
so I'll be trying to make sure they work.

Dave.
