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.--Navigating through the menu:--\subsection{Recorder}--\begin{tabular}[c]{|p{3.27cm}|p{13.318cm}|}-\hline-{\centering\bfseries\itshape-KEY-\par}-&-{\centering\bfseries\itshape-ACTION-\par}-\\\hline-{\centering-UP-\par}-&-Moves up in the menu.

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{itemize}--\begin{center}\begin{tabular}{|p{4.598cm}|p{8.051001cm}|}-\hline-{\centering\bfseries\itshape-FREQUENCY-\par}-&-{\centering\bfseries\itshape-BITRATE (Kbit/s) {}- quality 0{}-{\textgreater}7-\par}-\\\hline-{\centering-44100Hz stereo:-\par}-&-75, 80, 90, 100, 120, 140, 160, 170-\\\hline-{\centering-22050Hz stereo-\par}-&-39, 41, 45, 50, 60, 80, 110, 130-\\\hline-{\centering-44100Hz mono-\par}-&-65, 68, 73, 80, 90, 105, 125, 140-\\\hline-{\centering-22050Hz mono-\par}-&-35, 38, 40, 45, 50, 60, 75, 90-\\\hline-\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-\end{itemize}--\section{\label{ref:FMradio}FM Radio (FM recorder Ondio FM)}-{\centering\itshape- [Warning: Image ignored] % Unhandled or unsupported graphics:-%\includegraphics[width=4.15cm,height=2.371cm]{images/rockbox-manual-img29.png}- \newline-FM radio screen-\par}--This menu option switches to the radio screen. --The keys are:--\begin{tabular}[l]{|p{3.211cm}|p{13.424cm}|}-\hline-{\centering\bfseries\itshape-BUTTON-\par}-&-{\centering\bfseries\itshape-FUNCTION-\par}-\\\hline-{\centering-LEFT, RIGHT-\par}-&-Change frequency in 0.1 MHz steps.

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.
