Just curious if this has happened to anyone who owns or has owned one of the Archos models. This last spring, a friend of mine got me an Archos Jukebox Recorder from EBay. I was when I first began using Rockbox. The Jukebox worked cwell enough, but sometimes the settings would change by themselves. This would happen while I was pressing either the up/down or the previous/next buttons. I would always know when something wasn't right, because I couldn't change the volume, change the track, or even pause until I stopped the unit. Everything would work fine after I resumed playing except for the fact that repeat would suddenly be on, or "showed files" option had been set to display all. Eventually this Archos had battery issues, so I bought an FM recorder on EBay. It was barely used so it was in excellent condition, and I really like it! But, now I'm having the same problem. I'll be using the volume buttons, and all of the sudden, the keys seem to lock up. Then I have to stop and see what has been changed. So weird! I'm blind, so I can't see what is on the screen, and every time it happens, no one is around to ask.
