Hi Michael Sevakis,

This message of yours (below) has proven to be very helpful. I can record ,stop recording, and split recordings on my IAudio now. Wonderful. Thanks for your clear explanation.

Paul.

  Things there aren't voiced because of the conflict in running the hardware for recording and playback so the menu outside the screen is your best bet for configuring. The menu inside the screen is really just a convenience and still results in recording being reinitialized. All recording options are available there last time I looked.

  Screen keys (I checked again to remind myself so I hope no mistakes):

  When not recording:
  short power: exit screen
  long record: recording settings
  short record: start new recording
  short play: start new recording
  long play: exit screen

  When recording:
  short power: stop
  short record: split file
  short play: pause/unpause
  long play: stop

  ...so you have to stop first then exit

    Hi list,

    I have an x5 from IAudio, the latest rockbox build, and voice menus and all that enabled. I'm blind. My question.

    How does recording work? I read about it in the rockbox manual, but it is not entirely clear to me. I can move to the "recording screen" option in the main menu. When I open this with right arrow, the recording monitor switches on, meaning that I hear the microphone signal coming from the internal mic, into my headphones. This is fine, and the behaviour I expected.

    However, the voice menus don't speak anymore from this point, so I have no clue what to do next. Can I, or should I, configure anything like recording source, number of channels to record etc, or should I already have done this in the main menu, settings, recording settings menu?

    Secondly: how do I start a recording, after having entered the recording screen?

    Next is how do I stop the recording and return to the main menu again?

    To do some basic recording to begin with, your answers are very much appreciated. If I have any more questions, I want to make sure I first understand the very basics before going on. Please tell me how this recording feature works. I'm very happy with rockbox and my unit, and I'd like to master it.

    Best regards,
    Paul.
