I use my iAudio X5 with rockbox very often, and like it very much.
I'm having trouble with recording though.
I used to be able to record presentations easily, getting a nice wavpack file that could be converted to ogg or whatever later.
However now when I try to record, I get a recording file of the right length, but with no sound in it.
I've tried a variety of different formats, and all seem to give the same result.
I tried both through the built in microphone, and with a little olympus microphone hooked in via the subpack on the "line in" jack. Yes, I did change the recording source in recording settings.
I've also tried a handful of different bitrates, though far from all of them, to no avail.
I'm recording mono, not stereo.
I tried tapping the olympus microphone during a recording, expecting that should produce some sound even if the recording level was very low. I also played back the resulting recording with the volume cranked - but all I heard was a little bit of hiss.
Is my X5 just broken? Or am I doing something wrong?
BTW, when I try to record something, I'm pushing play, then record, then letting it record a while. Then I push play, and pull up on the hold button 3 times to leave the recording screen.
Oh, I'm using rockbox r13968-070724. I'm hesitant to upgrade since it used to work, but if folks feel that should fix it...
