Subject: Rockbox starting up on iRiver H340


I would like to bring to the Development team of Rockbox a problem which I
have now duplicated on several iRiver H340 machines, and I wonder if this
could please be fixed at some stage.


1. Power on the iRiver.
2. If you have a file automatically play at startup, you will hear the file.
3. Press stop.
4. Note that you get no speech at this point no matter which keys you press.
This is one of the problems and it is particularly a problem when Rockbox is
installed for the first time, because at that point Rockbox is not set to
play a file at startup.
5. Press play. Note that speech immediately begins, either the file will be
spelled or the MP3 clip played whichever is set.
6. If you press stop again during the speaking of the MP3 clip or the
spelling of the folder or file name, the player will freeze and the reset
button needs to be pressed in order to correct the problem. If you listen
to the speech, then press stop, everything is OK.

It would just be nice to have the speech be active right away when the unit
is powered on.

Thank you.
