I recently purchased an RCA Lyra2 . Very cool little device. Uses software codecs to play RealMedia. Windows Media, and MP3.

Unfortunately, it only plays Windows Media, encrypted RealMedia and encypted MP3. Grrrrrr.....

The good news is that it has an FM tuner, and uses CompactFlash as it's memory (so the sky's the limit).

I just bought a 128 MB card. Works like a champ. Used the FM tuner at the Indy 500. The Windows Media does not require encryption, so it's drag & drop.

It would be really great if an Ogg programmer could write a codec for this beast. I would think that it is very possible. Or an MP3 codec that does not require encryption,

If any coders are willing to do this, I would buy a Lyra2 and ship it to you, providing that you make the codec freely available.

For now, I am enncoding WMA at 96kbs for this device.
