Does this bug still exist in newer CVS versions?
If nobody's having this bug anymore and does report it here,
I'll close this task in about a week from now on!

Downloaded 2.2-2.4 and confirmed that the issue appeared between 2.1 and 2.2 apparently in the FM HW detection as 2.2 does not show the FM as detected in it's separate menu. 2.1 does not appear to have a way to display the HW detect info, but FM works.

Any update on this? I know it isn't high priority, but was hoping it was just a HW detection/ID that fell out from 2.1 to 2.2 when that code changed.
Also just letting you know somebody is still out there hoping this gets fixed. :)

I recently had the FM radio disappear from my Sansa c250. Debug reported no hardware found. Eventually I thought to boot into the OF and the radio function worked fine there. When I booted back into RB the radio was detected and life is good again. Could this be the work in progress RB native USB connection is getting some radio bit twiddled?

I have a Sansa e260 that definitely still has this bug. Every version of RB I have tried on it does the same thing; "Debug > FM Radio > HW Detected: No"... Right after it was hooked to the USB cable, "FM Radio" will usually (not always) show up on the menu - but after a reboot or power cycle, it goes away for good. Radio works fine in the OF, although booting back into RB afterward does not restore the FM Radio menu option. Just updated it to v3.2, but there's no change in the radio. It always works in the OF, so the radio is fully functional; RB simply can't seem to find it. But this bug is definitely still present.
