RE: Audio_3587 Beta Status Update

OK, update on the behaviour of the "BC Build" on my FMR...

If I F1-ON and allow the original firmware to boot, and it then auto loads
the new build...

Even with all the settings at defaults (f2 - yes), the OFF key behaves

I have Resume set to YES, so on power up, it starts playing a track, if I
now press and hold OFF,
With the "Official" firmware, there is an approximate 2 second delay, and
then the unit switches off
With your build, there is a 2 second delay, then 4 seconds of gradually
fading volume, and finally the unit switches off!

I really hope you can sort this problem, and I am happy to assist in anyway
I can, as it really does sound good...

|That is, not, how it's done ;)
|There are comprehensive step-by-step instructions at the
|bottom of the release notes, but to summise:
|Pick one rock, rename the one you pick to Audio_3587.rock and
|place it in the rocks directory.
|You MUST also, pick a firmware for your machine, rename this
|file to ajbrec.ajz and place it in your root (main) directory.
|However, if you are also getting weird lock-ups, I must be
|doing something that the v2/fm doesn't like. As I do not own
|such a device, perhaps someone who does (maybe you? :)) would
|like to work with me directly to solve this issue before the
|next release.
|If you can find a reliable set of events which will
|repetetively cause the same lockup, that would be perfect :)
|One lockup I was having in the early days was:
|# an mp3 is playing
|# the MAIN audio controls are visible on the screen # One or
|more icon is flashing (digital clip)
|...when the mp3 buffer emptied, my unit crashed - but I am 99%
|sure I solved this!
|Thanks to you and all for your help beta testing, it is
|greatly appreciated :)
