Radio fix in next firmware update

What I would love is if they could fix the interference with recording radio,like before I start recording the station comes in perfectly but when I start to record it goes almost all static.

Really?  Seems odd.

Re-orient your antenna, in this case, the headphone cable.  You may have a marginal FM signal.  When recording, the process will generate a little radio frequency interference (RFI) that can find its way to the analog signal.

The trick is to bring the signal level over this noise floor.

It would be nice if the Fuze could show the name of the station instead of the frequency. Twould make it much easier to find your favourite station (where I live I can tune in to around 15 stations (Austrian, Slovakian and sometimes Hungarian)). Nearly any radio with screen can read the radio name automatically but the Fuze. Oterwise radio reception is great.

BTW a second great thing would be that if the keylock is engaged, that upon touching the Fuze the light doesn’t go on (or have this configurable). If walking with the Fuze in the pocket otherwise quite of the screen backlight switches on. That would save me some power.

I like that idea that would be awsome, and micro sansa I really have not a clue what you are tring to say at all

could you simplify that a little bit. :smiley:

When hearing radio the headphone cables are working as antenna. So you have to reposition your headphone cables.

However recording by virtue will slightly decrease the radio reception level - so if reception is borderline, recording will cause bad quality. It’s not a bug per se.

Thanks for all your help,now i understand why this keeps happening, now I will reposition my headphones next time I want to record.

thanks again:smiley:

If you have more than one pair of phones, use whichever one has the longest cord when you’re recording…it’ll give you a bigger antenna:smiley:

That’s called RDS (or RDBS). It would require hardware the Fuze doesn’t have.

AN alternative with no extra hardware requirement is to allow text names on the presets, downloaded from your PC.
