Subject: Remote for JBR20 - V2

Remote for JBR20 - V2

For those with the newer JBR20 V2 - I received a
response from Archos Tech Support (yeah, I was
surprised too...). They say that the remote for the FM
recorder will work with the JBR V2. I e-mailed him
back to get an actual part number for the remote, so

money back. On their web site, the remote lists for

By the way, I saw on a Yahoo board that someone who
got the JBR V2 have been able to get FM functionality
through Rockbox, even though they didn't get the FM
version of the hardware. The suggestion was that the
functionality of FM on the V2 is a matter of having
the right software as the FM "chip" is on the V2
system board for both JBR and FM Recorder. Not sure if
I understood that correctly though, but it would be a
nice "freebie" if it can be made to work. I couldn't
e-mail the guy because he actually posted through
another list that was posted onto a Yahoo message.

On my JBR20 V2 (w/Rockbox), I can launch the FM
feature, and the tuner control works, but I'm not
getting any stations/sound playing through the
headset. Anyone know if I'm barking up the wrong tree
on this, or can the FM be made to work?
