When listening to an MP3 file encoded in 64kbps mono on the iRiver H120, Rockbox reports the bitrate as 128kbps and, on screens that show the remaining time of the track, it shows the remaining playing time incorrectly. It shows a time exactly half of the true running time and still decrements every second. When it reaches 0, it starts counting backwards - e.g. "-00:-01" for the remainder of the file. On a 64kbps STEREO file, the bitrate and time display is shown correctly.
This task depends upon

If you still have this problem with the latest CVS Rockbox, please provide a sample file.

I can't reproduce this with a build from today (2006-05-06). I'm using a 44 KHz, 64 kbps mono MP3 encoded with lame. Is this still a problem for you? Could you possibly attach a sample MP3 if it is still a problem.
