Well found :)

low res images :( ...but it doesn't look too hard to follow if you zoomed
in - quite a big spanse of PCB - lazy cad guys or lots of shielding for a car?

There was quite a flame about it when it happened, so I am sure the mail
archive will identify it with a little searching.

Source comparison would be reasonable, but there have been a *LOT* and I
mean a LOT of quite major changes to the Rockbox Source since SSI America
stole it ...example "mpeg.c" ...but if you got close, you would undoubtedly
be able to ask for help on the last few "nasty" bits (if there are any)
I am still baffled why they did not work -with- us, if it's just this voice
thing, then who cares, you won't need a chip to store the voice once you
have Rockbox Running.
