Subject: Bug report on iriver H140

Bug report on iriver H140

From: Mike <calbear41_at_calbears.net>
Date: 2005-12-14

Hi all,

I'm not sure this is technically a bug, more probably the inability to handle a
screwed up mp3 file. I'm using CVS-051213 on an iriver H140 (with the US 1.66
iriver firmware).

The podcasts from NPR have a 4 second tune affixed to the front of the podcast.
These podcasts are seen by rockbox as a 4 second recording, even though they are
multiple minutes long. When played using the iriver firmware, they play
normally. rockbox only plays the first 4 seconds of the podcast. I can't hold
down the FF button to scan past the 4 second mark (it will just wait until I let
go and then start the next track), and I can't hold down the REW button from the
next podcast to seek back into the end of the mp3 (it stays at 0:00 of the
current track).

The file is currently at
http://cdn.npr-podcasts.speedera.net/anon.npr-podcasts/podcast/1090/
npr_20051212_me_03.mp3
(at least now). You can use the podcast feed at
http://www.npr.org/rss/podcast.php?id=1090&uid=n1qe4e85742c986fdb81d2d38ffa0d5d53
and download the latest mp3 if the above mp3 file is not accessible.

Missing only the ability to do a 30 second skip using left and right instead of
moving to the previous/next track, and the loss of sound when fast
forwarding/rewinding, I'm loving rockbox. The bookmarking really improves my
player. Thanks for all your work!

Thanks,
Mike
