-\par}
-
-This is the screen from which the rest of the
-Rockbox functions can be accessed. It is used for a variety of
-functions, which are detailed below. You can access the Rockbox main
-menu by pressing MENU (player/studio version) or F1 (recorder version)
-key. All options in Rockbox can be controlled via this menu. Some of
-them can also be found in the Quick Menus (recorder version only).
-
-All settings are persistently stored on the unit. However, Rockbox does
-not spin up the disk solely for the purpose of saving settings, but
-instead will save them when it spins up the disk the next time, for
-example when refilling the MP3 buffer or navigating through the file
-browser. Changes to settings may therefore not be saved unless the
-Jukebox is shut down safely (see page \pageref{ref:Safeshutdown}).
-
-The two settings menus are covered in detail starting on page \pageref{ref:Part4}.
- All the other options on the main menu are explained here.

-\subsubsection{\label{ref:Recordingsettings}Recording Settings}
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Quality}
-Choose the quality here (0 to 7). Default is 5, best quality is 7,
-smallest file size is 0. This setting effects how much your sound
-sample will be compressed. Higher quality settings result in larger
-MP3 files.
-
-The quality setting is just a way of selecting an average bit rate, or
-number of bits per second, for a recording. When this setting is
-lowered, recordings are compressed more (meaning worse sound quality),
-and the average bitrate changes as follows.

-\end{tabular}\end{center}
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Frequency}
-Choose the recording frequency (sample rate) {}- 48kHz, 44.1kHz,
-32kHz (MPEG version 1), and 24kHz, 22.05kHz, 16kHz (MPEG version 2) are
-available. Higher sample rates use up more disk space, but give better
-sound quality. This setting determines which frequency range can
-accurately be reproduced during playback. Lower frequencies produce
-smaller files, for two reasons. The amount of data to be compressed is
-smaller and the data is easier to compress, since higher frequencies
-are not present. The frequency setting also determines which version
-of the MPEG standard sound is recorded using.
-
-\item \textbf{Source}
-Choose the source of the recording. This can be microphone, line in,
-or SPDIF (digital). For recording from the radio on the FM recorder,
-see page \pageref{ref:FMradio} below.
-
-Note: you cannot change the sample rate for digital recordings.
-
-\item \textbf{Channels}
-This allows you to select mono or stereo recording. Please note that
-for mono recording, only the left channel is recorded. Mono recordings
-are usually somewhat smaller than stereo.
-
-\item \textbf{Independent Frames}
-The independent frames option tells the Jukebox to encode with the bit
-reservoir disabled, so the frames are independent of each other. This
-makes a file easier to edit.
-
-\item \textbf{Time Split}
-This option is useful when timing recordings. If set to active it stops
-a recording at a given interval and then starts recording again with a
-new file., which is useful for long term recordings.
-
-The splits are seamless (frame accurate), no audio is lost at the split
-point. The break between recordings is only the time required to stop
-and restart the recording, on the order of 2{}-4 seconds.
-
-Options (hours:minutes between splits): off, 24:00, 18:00, 12:00, 10:00,
-8:00, 6:00, 4:00, 2:00, 1:20 (80 minute CD), 1:14 (74 minute CD),
-1:00, 00:30, 00:15, 00:10, 00:05.
-\item \textbf{Prerecord Time}
-This setting buffers a small amount of audio so that when the
-record button is pressed, the recording will begin from that number of
-seconds earlier. This is useful for ensuring that a recording begins
-before a cue that is being waited for.\\
-
-Options: Off, 1{}-30 seconds

-\section{\label{ref:Bookmarkconfig}\label{ref:Bookmarkmenu}Bookmarks}
-The bookmarks menu allows you to create and manage bookmark files.
-
-\begin{itemize}
-
-\item \textbf{Create Bookmark}
-While playing a track, use this option to save your current position
-within the track so that you can return to it at a later time.
-Bookmarks are saved on a per folder basis i.e. all of the files in the
-same folder have their bookmarks stored together. You can store
-multiple bookmarks for the same track.
-
-\item \textbf{List Bookmarks}

-Recorder bookmark browser Player bookmark browser
-
-While playing a track, use this option to return to any bookmark in the current folder. The bookmark browser
-screen (shown above) is now displayed. Use the UP and DOWN keys
-(recorder) or MINUS and PLUS keys (player) to navigate between
-bookmarks. Press PLAY to jump to a bookmark, ON+PLAY to delete a
-bookmark or STOP/OFF to exit the browser.
-
-\item \textbf {Recent bookmarks}
-If the ``save a list of recently created bookmarks'' option is enabled
-then you can view a list of several recent bookmarks here and select
-one to jump straight to that track. This option is off by default.
-See page \pageref{ref:Bookmarkconfigactual} for more details on
-configuring bookmarking in Rockbox.
-
-\end{itemize}
-
-\section{\label{ref:playlistoptions}Playlist Options}
-This menu allows you to work with playlists.
-Playlists can either be created automatically by playing a file in
-a directory directly, which will cause all of the files in that
-directory to be placed in the playlist, or they can be created by hand
-using the File Menu (see page \pageref{ref:Filemenu})
-or using the Playlist Options menu. Both automatic and manually
-created playlists can be edited using this menu.
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Create Playlist}
-Rockbox will create a playlist with all tracks in the current directory and all subdirectories. The playlist will be created one folder level ``up'' from
-where you currently are.
-
-\item \textbf{View Current Playlist}
-Displays the contents of the playlist currently stored in memory.
-
-\item \textbf{Save Current Playlist}
-Saves the current dynamic playlist, excluding queued tracks, to the
-specified file. If no path is provided then playlist is saved to
-current directory (see page \pageref{ref:Playlistsubmenu}).
-
-\item \textbf{Recursively Insert Directories}
-If set to ON then when you insert/queue a directory in Dynamic Playlist,
-all subdirectories will also be inserted. If set to ASK then you are
-prompted about recursive insertion when inserting a directory.
-\end{itemize}
-
-\section{Browse Plugins}
-With this option you can load and run various plugins that have been
-written for Rockbox.\\
-
-A detailed description of the different plugins begins on page \pageref{ref:Part5}.
-
-\section{\label{ref:Info}Info}
-This option shows MP3 ram buffer size, battery voltage level and
-estimated time remaining, disk total space and disk free space.
-
-On players use the MINUS and PLUS keys to step through several pages of
-information.
-
-\begin{itemize}
-
-\item \textbf{Show ID3 info}
-This is an alternative way to access the ID3 viewer. See page
-\pageref{ref:ID3viewer} for details on the ID3 viewer.
-
-\item \textbf{Rockbox Info}
-Displays some basic system information. This is, from top to bottom,
-the amount of memory Rockbox has available for storing music (the
-buffer), battery status, hard disk size and the amount of free space on
-the disk.
-
-\item \textbf{Version}
-Software version and credits display.
-
-\item \textbf{Debug (Keep Out!)}
-This submenu is intended to be used only by Rockbox developers. It shows
-hardware, disk, battery status and a lot of other information. It is
-not recommended that users access this menu unless instructed to do so
-in the course of fixing a problem with Rockbox. In particular the
-``Dump ROM Contents'', ``View/clear RTC RAM'' and
-``Screenshot'' and ``Sound test'' functions
-should be treated with care.
-\end{itemize}
-
-\section{Shutdown (Player)}
-This menu option saves the Rockbox configuration and turns off the hard
-drive before shutting down the machine. For maximum safety this
-procedure is recommended when turning off the Jukebox. (There is a
-very small risk of hard disk corruption otherwise.) See page
-\pageref{ref:Safeshutdown} for more details.
