Hi Thomas,

I played around with the tagcache on my archos recorder v1 as well,
and had the same symptoms, the only difference is, that is works. I
agree it takes a long time. The wiki article is referring to the newer
SWCODEC devices, as some iPod-specific notes show. The tag cache
update takes a long time, and the first bootup takes long as well, but
afterwards it works fine. The second boot and afterwards are almost as
fast as usual.
