so far so good.

you need to turn voiced menus on in the F1 menu, i believe.

if the F3 key is the radio you are not using rockbox, you're using the archos firmare. if the
archos firmware _has_ a radio menu, it's not a V2, it's an FMR.

while some V2s had the radio in them and were just rebranded FMRs, archos disabled the use of the
FM tuner in it's firmware, so i think you have an FMR. try installing the FMR daily build and
report back with your results.
