Re[2]: new member with record query

Hi Martin,

I've tried this already, and the best I can get is a rather quiet signal from the machine, exactly what one would expect when plugging a microphone into a line-in jack. Will this feature also work with stereo microphones or only mono kinds? In case I am doing something incorrectly, here are the steps am executing:

1. plug microphone into line-in port.
2. Enter record menu.
3. Enter recording options.
4. Set source to line-in.
5. Exit settings and enter recording screen.
6. Right-arrow to boost the gain as high as it will go.
7. Push the good old record button.

On a similar note, is there a faster way of starting a recording in Rockbox? I know I could tell the machine to go into the record screen at boot time, but I won't be recording something every time use the device. Thanks for any assistance, and good to meet you all.
