Rockbox doesn't have this 30 second buffer, but the original Archos
firmware does.

In Rockbox, you can record the radio, by setting the radio playing, then
going to the recorder screen, set it to Line-in and start recording.

The radio works just fine, and has done for months.

The FMR is officially supported by the Rockbox team, and again it has been
for months, since maybe about March this year, after we ironed out many of
the porting issues for the new hardware. As a general rule, whatever works
for the Recorder also works for FMR. If it doesn't, then we try to fix it!
