Subject: RE:PM3 clip and Ipod.

RE:PM3 clip and Ipod.

From: Rob Powell <rob_at_rinty.plus.com>
Date: 2006-06-25

maurice, the problem is that the setting isn't being saved. What you
need to do is, to go into the menus, turn on talk MP3 clip, then
press "enter" the select button I think it's called on the ipod, then
it'll hopefully save the settings. I'm not sure that that part of my
mail made it through to the list, so am wriging it again, forgive if
you've tried it. I've found that the newer versions of rockbox tend
to be a bit tempramental about saving settings, not least the time and date.
