I scanned feature requests and bug reports and didn't
see this mentioned anywhere.

Rockbox Version: CVS0803
Archos JBR FM 20GB P/N 300131 S/NRN 032103714

When I select FM Radio from the Main Menu,
I can change the frequency, but I get no sound (except
that if I turn it up to max (100) volume, I very very
faintly hear the radio station).

Hope this wasn't some mistake on my part, but I see no
info on how to turn on the radio.

I'm a novice Rockbox user, so I hope I didn't make some
rookie mistake. Has this been reported before?

This task depends upon

Works for me, so long as I tune in to an actual radio station!
Can you tune any other radio in to the same frequency and
get a proper volume out of it? Is the headphone plugged in to
the socket, as the headphone cable is also the radio aeriel.
Try moving it around to see if you get a better reception, or
try moving the unit to a different location, such as outdoors.
