Displays the sample rate and channel (mono/stereo) status in the statusbar in the recording screen. This info replaces the repeat mode and shuffle icons which are redundant in this screen.

When leaving the recording screen the repeat mode and shuffle icons are restored.

This means that sample rate and channels are viewable at all times on all targets in the recording screen, which is not the case at the moment.

I have been told that it is unacceptable to have a statusbar that is not the same in all screens and this is why I have not committed this. I can see no justification for this opinion and have recieved no explanation - I think that in this case, where there is redundant information being displayed, a slightly different statusbar is justified.

I am submitting this to the tracker in the hope that some other devs will see this and agree with me :)

This task depends upon

New version, now the filetype and bitrate of MP3 encoding is also included on the status bar in place of the volume info...

Just to avoid a potential problem with targets that don't have recording.

By the way, If you want to see what it looks like (on the H1xx anyway) there are some screenshots here: (at the bottom of that post)
