Hi Nathan,

The 80 GB iPod is indeed the 5.5 gen iPod Video that developers are
working on, but Rockbox doesn't yet work on. As for playing live
albums, the 5.5 gen iPod Video supports "gapless playback" when using
the Apple firmware, so live albums should sound good. Rockbox can't
play protected content, including tracks purchased at the iTunes
store, but it supports gapless playback for MP3s. There are small
gaps with AAC files, but not too bad. But if you want to play a lot
of iTunes music, you'll have to play it using the Apple
firmware. You could switch to Rockbox for playing the CDs you
imported yourself, though.
