For the sake of documentation, I know for sure that it is not related
to the cpu speed.
I checked it by trying to play jewels on a longer trip (no music
playing). I idled the cpu in the debug menu, and the slow
swap-animation showed me that the cpu was not boosted all the time.
And for what it's worth, I do not know which other part in the iriver
device (besides of the hard disk, which is already excluded I think)
has a variable power consumption, apparently, I'm not enough into
electronics yet :-D
It was not that bad in the beginning of the h300-adaption, was it ?
How/when did this problem appear ?
And the very similar h100 does not suffer from this problem, so it
must be hidden in the very device/component part, which is certainly
not easy to get into. At least for me :-D
Does anyone have a clue, a pointer, an idea where guys like me
can/could start to search ? I'm just asking because I never saw any
discussions on this topic here yet.
