Heres what i'd like to do...

I have an Archos 6000 Player (thats the first

I also have an O2 XDA mobile phone.

Currently I use my Archos for music, plugged into
my car stereo, what I'd like to do is wire the
audio from my phone, thus hearing it ring/and the
person talk over my car stereo too.

The simplest solution I could come up with was
simply to connect a single audio cable from my
phone, to the line in jack of my archos, which
would be PERFECT if only I could get the rockbox
software to enable the line in like the standard
archos software does... but the archos software as
we all agree... sucks besides that one feature for

A huge bonus would be if in addition the sofware
would automatically pause when it got a signal
over a a thresh-hold volume through the line-in.

In a nutshell, it saves me buying a "proper" car
kit, which would cost 100-300...

I'd settle for anyway of just getting audio on the
line-in though!

I'm not a programmer, or have any knowledge of how
the rockbox ware works, but I'd be real greatful
if someone could figure out anything for me!

Thanks in advance!
