FS#1687 - While recording, let Play start a new file

On the recorder (at least in the .28 firmware) you can
press “Next” at any time to start a new recording. It picks
up from the previous one with no gap (in fact there may be
a little overlap, I haven’t had time to check yet). This is
very handy for live recordings where you want to put each
song in a new file.

I haven’t had a chance yet to set up a build environment
to even go so far as to compile, let alone install, this stuff.
(I only switched to RockBox yesterday). But the following
is a cut-and-paste change to recording.c which I believe will
provide this functionality. I simply included what seemed
to be the appropriate code from the OFF button into the
PLAY button. What I don’t know is whether it will lose any
audio in the process. It simply says that if we are
recording, and the play button is pressed, then we stop the
existing recording and start a new one.

Questions and comments to And
yes, next time I’ll create an account and do this all right.

Thank you for you patch. We have solved it ourselves, along

I now have an SF account, and I’ve built and installed this patch.
1. It does compile.
2. It does work, however there is a small gap between
recordings. Oddly the sound is lost at the end of the first
recording, so it looks as if some buffer isn’t being flushed. It’s
conceivable that this is a general problem, I’ll take a look at it
when I have a chance.
