Xavier, it sounds like you play with the radio a bit.
Have you found any ways to increase the reception. It seems pretty poor.
Admittedly, it could just be where I live, where I mostly use it, and it also seems that many of the MP3 players that have FM don't do well.

Subject: Thoughts on FM Radio Presets and functionality.
Now that FM radio is present for the iriver (with presets) I spend some time to read the manual how exactly the radio works on Archos.
I was suprised to see that a lot can be done to achieve something better with the FM (little details).
In my mind (I don't know why) I thought that Rockbox supports dynamic preset, saving and loading, instead of the cliche "constant" numbered presets.
So why not make the FM radio a little more usable and smart?
What I am thinking is to be able to save and load presets from physical files, instead of the "add only" option.
This would be extremely usefull for those that travel a lot and 32 stations are too little, or much of a hassle to rename.
I am waiting for advice....
