Re: Thoughts on FM Radio Presets and functionality.

I have found that you can get better reception by using different headphones.
I suspect that the cheaper the headphones, the better the reception.
I hypothesize that better headphones are better insolated, and therefore make a worse antenna.

Xavier, it sounds like you play with the radio a bit.

Have you found any ways to increase the reception. It seems pretty poor.

Admittedly, it could just be where I live, where I mostly use it, and it also seems that many of the MP3 players that have FM don't do well.

Thanks!

  Now that FM radio is present for the iriver (with presets) I spend some time to read the manual how exactly the radio works on Archos.
  I was suprised to see that a lot can be done to achieve something better with the FM (little details).

  In my mind (I don't know why) I thought that Rockbox supports dynamic preset, saving and loading, instead of the cliche "constant" numbered presets.
  So why not make the FM radio a little more usable and smart?
  What I am thinking is to be able to save and load presets from physical files, instead of the "add only" option.
  This would be extremely usefull for those that travel a lot and 32 stations are too little, or much of a hassle to rename.

  I am waiting for advice....
