Recording via optical-in

<< < (2/24) > >>

sullen:
Yeah, if optical worked correctly, the Iriver would be the smallest optical digital recorder out there AFAIK.  Just like the above mentioned, I use a JB3 with an AD20 in front of it to record digital.  Analog ADC chips can be noisy, I have never used the JB3s ADC chip so I am not sure just how "bad" it is. 

whatboutbob:
Yup...I'm eagerly waiting to bring my AD20 out of the cupboard too. :)

Digital recording is the only doable 'big' feature that's missing from rb, from my perspective. (I'm not counting wma playback & mp3 encoding as doable)

Boswell:
The reason I bought an iRiver H140 was to record .wav files via optical input. I use a digital mixer as part of my PA rig at live gigs, and have to keep an accurate copy of what goes through the main stereo speakers. Because of the dropped samples in the iRiver firmware (even in the latest release), I still can't use the H140, and instead have to rely on a trusty old Denon minidisc deck. However, minidiscs are a lossy medium.

I've given up hope of iRiver fixing the missing samples bug, and so am waiting patiently for RockBox to add optical input to their otherwise excellent code.

You could perhaps get a Hi-MD recorder - optical in and lossless recording ability.  You only get something like 90 mins to a disk, but that may be enough?

As far as I know and have tested, the missing samples problem was resolved in firmware 1.66.  I have tried tests that produced the clicks in previous versions and did not get the clicks in 1.66.
