I have a similar problem with my Ondio SP, every time sth on the LCD
changes there is a chirping noise, so loud it really disturbs listening to
music. I had this problem with Rockbox 2.5 and so I uninstalled it, and
there is no noise with the original archos software.

This is a little bit frustrating to me, because I bought the (used) Ondio
because it runs Rockbox, which I like very much (and which runs without
problems) on my JBR V2.

I searched through the Rockbox website, but I couldn't find any hint that
this is a known issue. May someone point me to a webpage or an archived
mail where this has been disussed before?
