Subject: Re: High kbps/Low kbps power consumption
Date: 2003-06-05

As a followup to my previous email, I've noticed that my Jukebox recorder
20 has trouble with 320kbps-formatted MP3 music files when the battery
level gets down to around 55 percent or less. Is this a known issue with
the Jukebox? I didn't see much about it in the bug reporting list.

I loaded the daily build ajz from June 4th, but I'm still having this
problem. I can hear the hard drive being accessed, then, afer a while, the
music will cut in again. It drops out intermittently.

Anyway, seeing this happen is what prompted my previous question. Is it
best not to play music on the recorder formatted above 128 kbps?
