00:19:56preglowbut you haven't got some quasi hurricane going on at your coast either
00:20:22Zagoroh, dramatics at your end? /me checks theyr
00:20:27preglowi wont be going outside in this weather unless i'm forced

00:28:33ep0chpreglow: do you think libmad and tremor will get much of a speedup with the extra iram?
00:28:57preglowep0ch: well, at least some
00:29:04preglowep0ch: i've got some plans for both of them
00:29:18ep0chcoolm libmad is so nearly realtime without boost
00:29:24preglowi'll just have to get this frigging wav writer going
00:29:38preglowand things keep coming up and pushing me away from the computer, heh
00:29:46preglowep0ch: actually, it _is_ realtime for some bitrates
00:29:51preglowep0ch: 128 and 160, for instance
00:29:57ep0chgood job the weather is bad then :)

00:30:27 Quit zeekoe (" ")
00:30:44ep0chyeah, some of my 192 kbps seem realtime, but some other 192 kbps aren't
00:31:00linuxstbMmm. *PANIC* Stkov Main - loading a new WPS whilst playing music on the iriver.
00:31:16preglowstkov _main_ ?
00:31:18preglowouch
00:32:00linuxstbI was playing an ALAC file, but I'm pretty certain it would have happened with other codecs - I'll do some tests.
00:32:25preglowi got a stkov once
00:32:31preglowbut can't remember the thread
00:32:35preglowi didn't load no wps, though
00:32:50linuxstbBTW, is rebooting after a stkov by pressing ON one of Linus's new features, or has it always been there?
00:34:02preglowhmm, definitely not been there
00:34:10preglowi had to reset mine with some contraption when it happened to me
00:34:13preglowon the train, of course
00:34:14markunJust compiled rockbox and now I get 'codec failure' with all my ogg's.. I wonder what causes it.
00:34:26preglowmarkun: i get that sometimes, make clean, etc, etc
00:34:43Zagorlinuxstb: Now panicf() shuts off the hard drive and lowers the CPU frequency, it also reboots if ON is pressed.
00:34:46markunI did config, will try to clean eveything first
00:34:58Zagor(cvs commit message earlier today)
00:35:00preglowconfig doesn't necessarily clean all the files
00:35:03linuxstbZagor: That takes all the fun out of searching for something to press reset with.
00:35:13Zagorhehe
00:35:16linuxstbiriver development is not the same...
00:35:24Bagderwe should punish linus for that
00:35:40linuxstbBut it's about time - I think a few people have broken their reset buttons by now.
00:35:47preglowhow to make downsample() and upsample() stereo without a kludge...
00:35:59preglowi don't know how they manage to do that
00:36:05preglowi've reset mine god knows how many times
00:36:13preglowi do tend to be careful, however

00:36:37preglowhahaha
00:36:42ep0chheh :)
00:37:59preglowlinuxstb: did you try some asm opts for alac?
00:38:19linuxstbNo, I'm waiting for your wav-writer :).
00:39:20linuxstbI've been trying to finish my Sudoku so I can commit it and forget about it when the feature freeze is over.
00:40:36preglowhahaha
00:40:41preglowdont hold your breath for that wavwriter
00:40:45ep0chsudoku, cool! does it have a save option though? :s
00:41:05linuxstbep0ch: Of course. Check yesterday's CVS logs - you can download it now if you want to have a look.
00:41:22linuxstb(yesterday=2005-09-13)
00:41:39ep0chwhere can i get it precompiled?
00:42:11ep0chhaven't figured out how to get the cross compiler working under freebsd yet (am very lazy)
00:42:14linuxstbI can put up a rockbox.zip for you. It changes the plugin API (adding the menus), so I can't just give you the .rock
00:42:42ep0chthat would be grand
00:43:45linuxstbIt's here: http://www.davechapman.f2s.com/rockbox/rockbox-sudoku.zip
00:43:56ep0chis it possible to cram super sudoku on the ihp screen? ;)
00:43:59linuxstbIt's my development version of Rockbox, so it also has the ALAC decoder in it.
00:44:07ep0choh lucky me :)
00:44:11ep0chthanks!!
00:44:22ep0chi'll let you know how i get on with sudoku :D
00:45:13linuxstbIf you grab http://www.davechapman.f2s.com/rockbox/sudoku.zip you will find two ".ss" files containing Sudoku games. Just open these in the file browser, and they will be opened by my sudoku plugin.
00:45:31ep0chta
00:46:42ep0chdoes sudoku plugin set the cpu speed to 11 mhz or does it stay at 48?
00:46:52ep0ch(to save battery)
00:47:07linuxstbIt does nothing to the CPU speed. I didn't think Rockbox was capable of dropping to 11mhz (yet).
00:47:21linuxstbBut I would expect you to be listening to music at the same time.
00:47:36ep0chwell, if you go to the cpufreq menu and press the joystick button you get 11
00:49:14 Join bagawk [0] (i=1000@unaffiliated/bagawk)
00:50:34preglowthat doesn't make sense
00:51:04preglowit'll be switched to 48mhz as soon as you touch playback anyway
00:51:12ep0chi know
00:52:08 Quit ender` (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
00:52:33ep0chbut if dont want to listen to music while using the plugins you can save battery
00:52:38preglownot much
00:53:00preglowbut we'll see
00:53:03ep0cheverybit helps
00:53:20ep0chi usually drop it down to 11 when i'm using the radio
00:53:44ep0chgui seems just as responsive at 11
00:54:37ep0chsudoku is seriously cool :)
00:55:11ep0chpressing the joystick button to cycle numbers is a bit annoying though
00:55:52linuxstbWhat's the alternative?
00:56:28ep0chmy suggestion would be, that pressing the joystick should change between 'insert number mode' and 'navigate mode', and in 'insert number mode' up and down or left and right on the stick increment or decrements the number
00:56:39flurblelinuxstb: psychic mind-reading interface!
00:56:55linuxstbflurble: I knew you were going to say that.
00:57:34linuxstbep0ch: That was my original idea (and implementation). But I decided this way would be less keypresses. Just hold the joystick down and it cycles through the numbers
00:58:56ep0chyour original idea just seems more natural to me
00:59:21ep0chup/down o
00:59:27preglowlinuxstb: so, where does one get alac files? i thought the only place it was used was for the airport thinmg
00:59:43ep0chup/down on the stick is much less effort than tapping
01:00
01:00:06ep0chalso, a timer would be good
01:00:10linuxstbYou have to encode them via iTunes.
01:00:48linuxstbep0ch: Don't tap - just hold it down.
01:01:21ep0chi guess i will get used to it :D
01:01:29linuxstbTry and play a proper game and let me know what you think.
01:02:00linuxstbI agree a timer would be nice. But I just want the core program committed to CVS before I think about extra features like that.
01:02:20ep0choh ok, its been a few weeks since i did sudoku so i may take a while to finish a game :)
01:06:06ep0chlinuxstb: ok i've done a few moves, its quite easy to cheat :)
01:06:35linuxstbpreglow: I've put an example ALAC file here if you want a look: http://www.davechapman.f2s.com/rockbox/luckynight.m4a I downloaded it from mplayer's website, but it's not there any more after their recent server crash
01:06:42ep0chi.e. the 'Illegal move' prompt
01:06:56linuxstbHow can you cheat?
01:07:12ep0chcycle through each number without thinking
01:07:22ep0chuntil you dont get the illegal move
01:07:33preglowlinuxstb: 404
01:07:37linuxstb"illegal" just means it doesn't obey the three laws of sudoku. It could still be incorrect.
01:08:01linuxstbpreglow: Try again now.
01:08:02ep0chhmmm
01:08:16preglowlinuxstb: better
01:08:35linuxstbI hope that file works - I don't think I've tested it myself on the iriver.
01:08:37preglowlinuxstb: you got a codec for me as well?
01:08:53preglowlinuxstb: forget it, i keep forgetting codec files need core support ;)
01:09:47linuxstbDid you grab my rockbox-sudoku.zip file?
01:12:20preglownah
01:12:24preglownot important anyway, i can wait
01:12:42ep0chlinuxstb: 'solve' isnt implemented yet?
01:13:10linuxstbep0ch: No, but it soon will be.
01:13:21ep0chwill be a nice touch
01:14:05ep0chi cant see too clearly but do the hard coded values have a darker background colour?
01:14:13linuxstbYes.
01:14:31linuxstbYou can't change those (obviously), but you can always change anything else.
01:14:50ep0chmaybe i need to change the contrast to see the background colour :s
01:15:08linuxstbInteresting. I'm just using the default contrast.
01:16:15ep0choh thats better, i had contrast set to 26, now its 31 and i can see properly now

01:24:13 Quit matsl (Remote closed the connection)
01:26:12linuxstbI'm not sure if a plugin can control the backlight (or if it should), but I'll add it to the to-do list.
01:28:23preglowit should
01:28:29preglowthe viewer, for example
01:28:34preglowi would love to have constant backlight
01:28:52ep0chlinuxstb: not sure if its specific to your build or not, but some of my mp3s no longer display the bitrate
01:29:01ep0ch(in the wps)
01:31:17linuxstbep0ch: I don't think it's my build - it should be up to date with CVS.
01:31:46linuxstbHold old was your firmware before you replaced it with mine?
01:31:55linuxstb^How old
01:32:17ep0chprobably something amiconn has done
01:32:46ep0chwell i updated earlier today, but didnt really test it then
01:32:54ep0chlast time before that was a few days ago
01:33:17markunpreglow: I was thinking of modifying rockbox to have a manual backlight switch.
01:35:46ep0chin fact most of my mp3s dont display bitrate now
01:35:59ep0chanyway i'm off

01:37:38markunpreglow: Use the record button as an on/off switch
01:37:39preglowi have no idea how this code works
01:38:08linuxstbpreglow: I think the hardest part is telling the wavwriter when to start and stop. Plus getting it to display information.
01:39:48preglowyes
01:39:55preglowand i don't want the wps screen
01:40:09preglowtelling it when to stop is easy, i just want it to render one track
01:40:19preglowwhen i press 'stop' i've had enoug
01:40:19preglowh
01:40:26preglowjust like the good old xxx2wav plugins
01:41:04preglowi'll just give up for now, i have absolutely no idea of how to do this

01:59:42linuxstbWow. I'm impressed with the Sudoku solver I've stolen. It solves a puzzle instantly, even on the Archos recorder.
02:00
02:00:03linuxstbThis puzzle must be easier than I thought.
02:00:19rasherI believe generating puzzles is closely related to generating them
02:00:47preglowlinuxstb: it's not
02:00:55preglowlinuxstb: but there exists a clever algo
02:01:07preglowlinuxstb: solving a sudoko puzzle is actually an np-complete problem
02:01:51preglowdancing links, the algo is called
02:03:50linuxstbI'm too tired to think about it.
02:04:29preglowsomeone please pay slasheri to do the wav writer :-/
02:04:39linuxstb:)
02:06:16rasherAh, this is the sudoku thing I found: http://www.lemo.dk/sudoku/ portable C, it seems
02:06:26rasherOf course, the page is written in Danish :-\
02:07:01linuxstbI used the solver from here: http://www-users.cs.york.ac.uk/~shackell/sudoku/Sudoku.html
02:07:32rasherWith an url like that, you can't go wrong
02:08:25linuxstbrasher: First good news - your Danish program has a copy of the GPL in the source code.
02:08:56***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
02:09:28rasherIndeed.
02:09:29preglowseems like it's a simple backtrakcing solver
02:10:13rasherIt mentions potentially taking days creating games
02:10:18rasherThe page, that is
02:10:30linuxstbrasher: The code seems to be split into three files - an X11 GUI, a win32 GUI and the core functions in C. So it seems a good bet for Rockbox.
02:10:35linuxstbUnless it takes days....
02:10:46preglowheh
02:10:52preglowi'd imagine that's for a particularily large game
02:11:03rasherActually, it's for a small game, I think
02:11:07preglowwell
02:11:08rasher(with few numbers)
02:11:15preglowthen that's a showstopper, plain and simple, heh
02:11:45rasherBut.. I don't know, it may just be in pretty extreme cases
02:12:02rasherBut the way the code is written lends itself nicely to using in Rockbox
02:12:26rasherI guess you could test its speed against the other solver
02:12:35preglowoooooh, i'll _never_ be rid all the mallocs in libflac :////
02:13:46linuxstbI wonder how well libFLAC 0.3 would work with current FLAC files.
02:14:30*linuxstb goes to test
02:14:47preglowdidn't these people in the least think of embedded platforms?
02:14:54preglowi'll frigging kill them, i swear
02:15:41linuxstbCalm down :).
02:15:42 Quit hicks (Remote closed the connection)
02:18:11linuxstbOh well, flac-0.3 doesn't work.
02:18:24linuxstbDidn't really expect it to.
02:20:00preglowhrmph
02:20:12preglowstill, using an older lib isn't a very good solution
02:21:06linuxstbWhy not? The FLAC spec hasn't changed. If it works, it works. If not, then we won't use it - or we can fix anything that doesn't work.
02:21:47rasherI'm still annoyed that the reference decoder includes id3v2 skipping
02:21:53rasheronly served to give people bad ideas..
02:23:59linuxstbThat's been present since the very beginning of FLAC.
02:24:08linuxstbBut I agree it's a stupid idea.
02:24:59linuxstbBut on the other hand, FLAC has succeeded in becoming the most widely-implemented lossless codec, so he's done something right.
02:25:46preglowi just can't stand this source
02:25:47preglowit's unreadable
02:26:14linuxstbI know.

02:40:11linuxstbWould resurrecting the flac2wav plugin help you?
02:41:52preglowwell, yeah, but let's not do that ;)
02:41:53preglownot yet, at least
02:42:00preglowgotta sleep for now anyway
02:42:02preglowsee ya later
02:42:26linuxstbYes - I wasn't planning on doiing it now - just if the wavwrite proves too hard.
02:42:30linuxstbGoodnight.

07:56:03amiconnI just started a test of my latest xing fixes.
07:56:05snaxany word on when there will be an "official" release for the iRiver series?
07:56:10LinusNsnax: no
07:56:13snaxok
07:57:07amiconnI've left out the adaption to closest bitrate, it's a too complex change for a last minute addition, and it would need some thoughts about passing buffer size limits if we don't want to allocate the theoretical maximum
07:57:17snaxhmm, well, as long as I can reliably get back into the original firmware to reflash if somthing isn't working, then I suppose it's not a huge risk to try it now
07:57:25LinusNsnax: exactly
07:57:46LinusNsnax: in fact, you are more safe with the rockbox boot loader than without it
07:57:58B4gderthe biggest risk is that you won't want to ever return to the original firmware ;-)
07:58:22snaxalright, guess I'll give it a shot
07:58:36*snax double checks the md5sum

08:00:20snaxfc559f9797e5a11f7e84dff19d1ceb6d ihp_120.hex
08:00:37snaxlooks good
08:02:00snaxworked fine so far
08:02:16snaxgot the rockbox bootloader text, then the regular firmware kicked in
08:02:22B4gderwooo
08:02:39LinusNperfect
08:02:40snaxstill plays music :)
08:02:50snaxok, now to install the actual firmware image
08:03:44snaxI want to use flac, so I should probably grab a recent snapshot
08:04:10B4gderyou want a recent, regardless
08:05:43LinusN"emergency" poweroff works fine
08:06:00B4gderneat
08:06:00amiconnHmm. I think there's more work to do on the archos recording, but I don't want to delay the release too much...
08:06:01LinusNi wonder if it should splash() a message about it...
08:06:21snaxwhat does "dir buffer is full!" mean
08:06:23LinusNnah
08:06:41B4gdersnax: it means you need to read the FAQ
08:06:52snaxgood idea
08:07:03B4gderhttp://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/GeneralFAQ#What_does_dir_buffer_is_full_mea
08:07:14amiconnI want to finish the test of my latest xing fixes, which will unfortunately take until the evening
08:07:32LinusNamiconn: no rush
08:08:37amiconn"Emergency poweroff" sounds like Big Red Button ;)
08:08:45LinusNhehe
08:08:57LinusNit's that timeout we discussed yesterday
08:08:58B4gderis that the button next to the self-destruct one?
08:09:06***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
08:09:14LinusNB4gder: no, it's behind a hatch
08:09:28LinusNpush the "self destruct" button to open it
08:09:32B4gderhehe
08:10:07snaxso many settings!
08:10:17snaxwill this thing brush my teeth and feed my pet, too :)
08:11:03B4gderalmost
08:11:10B4gder:-)
08:12:31amiconnLinusN: Keep in mind that this shutdown after timeout isn't needed on Ondio
08:12:48amiconnAh, ignore me
08:12:56LinusNi always do :-)
08:13:16amiconnIt isn't needed because of failed spinups, but it still protects from event loops not using the default handler
08:13:22LinusNyup
08:13:49amiconnThe good thing with the Ondio is that there is no critical battery voltage range.
08:14:07amiconnEither it works, or shuts down completely
08:15:05amiconnI mean critical in the sense of disk access failing etc. Of course there is a critical range where you should better not try to flash rockbox etc
08:15:24snaxI like how it doesn't take 30 seconds to rescan the file system after unplugging the USB cable

08:16:32amiconnLinusN: Do you know whether mpeg version 2.5 is "allowed" in conjunction with layer 1 and layer 2, or whether it's layer 3 only?
08:16:45amiconnI tend to believe it's layer 3 only...
08:16:49LinusNme too
08:17:17amiconnOtherwise real 'monster' frames would be possible, max. would be 2880 bytes
08:17:27LinusNoh, i see that the recorder never saves the runtime db when powering off with the OFF double click
08:17:37amiconnOopss...
08:17:53amiconnThe off doubleclick doesn't fire SYS_POWEROFF ?
08:18:06snaxmy flac -8 files seem to play without skips as far as I can tell
08:18:12LinusNyes it does, but it lets the default handler take care of it
08:18:28LinusNand the db callback is only set in the main tree loop
08:18:40amiconnAh
08:18:54LinusNi don't really like using the callback for that
08:19:13LinusN(in fact, i don't like callbacks at all)
08:19:40amiconnThe runtime db should be in synced state if no music is playing
08:20:20LinusNnot necessarily
08:20:26LinusNthe file handle is still open
08:20:32amiconnYes
08:20:58amiconn...but the code calls fsync() after each update sequence
08:21:05LinusNah, rundb_unbuffer_track()
08:22:26amiconnI wonder whether it would be a good idea to let the default handler close all open files
08:22:51LinusNhmm
08:23:10amiconnPerhaps not
08:29:04LinusNi think the database should be shut down regardless, now it's only shut down if rockbox enters usb mode from the browser
08:31:30LinusNin fact, if you enter usb mode from a menu or the wps, the database will use stale information
08:46:03LinusNi think i'll ditch the callback in tree.c
08:46:33LinusNand instead have two functions in tree.c called tree_flush() and tree_restore()
08:46:45LinusNwhich are called by the default handler
08:47:02LinusNor rather, the usb screen
08:47:30LinusNtree_flush() would be called when entering usb mode, and when shutting down
08:48:40LinusNif we later on find more things that need to be flushed, we just add more xxx_flush/restore functions
08:49:07LinusNimho, those callbacks are only good/useful for the plugins
08:49:34*amiconn wants to add another callback ;)
08:49:44amiconnNot related to shutdown/ flush etc
08:49:48LinusNhehe
08:49:49snaxhas anything been done to address the "Low battery protection" bug?
08:49:49amiconnALso nothing for 2.5
08:50:02LinusNsnax: yes and no
08:50:11LinusNamiconn: what callback?
08:50:14snaxany sort of quick fix to at least prevent it from being in deadlock draining the battery below safe limits
08:50:18LinusNyes
08:50:38LinusNthat's what the "emergency shutdown" is for
08:50:48snaxah
08:50:50amiconnI want to add a "hook" to the screenshot function, so that the grayscale library version can implement its own version

09:01:48*amiconn is curious whether the 200KB firmware size limit was actually tested for fmrecorder
09:03:45amiconnPerhaps we have more space than we believe...
09:05:52LinusNwould be ironic
09:06:46*LinusN tests
09:09:30amiconnI'll probably do some firmware size limit tests on all my units (need to flash back to pure archos first), but I don't have an fmr
09:10:15LinusNdoh! it works!

09:11:26amiconnI'll try to find the limits for Studio, Rec v1, Ondio FM and Ondio SP
09:11:43amiconnI *know* that the limit must be >~300KB for Ondio
09:12:17amiconn...because archos has some "non-returnable" firmware upgrades, that are one that flash themselves
09:12:23amiconn*ones
09:12:31amiconnThese are >300 KB
09:13:22amiconnLinusN: How did you do it? Is it sufficient to just pad a .bin with zeroes, then scramble?
09:13:56LinusNi have gcc 3.4.3 here :-)
09:14:18amiconnAh, so you didn't test a certain value (yet)
09:14:23LinusNnope
09:15:06LinusNi think patching scramble.c would be the easiest
09:18:03LinusN256k works...
09:20:02LinusN300k too
09:21:22LinusN400k doesn't
09:21:39snaxrockbox seems to make more hdd clicks than I remember the official firmware doing
09:24:48amiconnLinusN: Do you test on an unflashed fmr, or with the old flash rom image + F1-boot?

09:37:26snaxmaybe it's my imagination, but my iriver hd is a lot noisier now
09:37:46B4gdersnax: I doubt rockbox does that
09:38:15snaxI've uninstalled rockbox for the moment
09:38:58LinusNsnax: rockbox uses the hd a lot more, if that's what you mean
09:39:25B4gderit does?
09:39:36snaxI created a big playlist in the root directory
09:39:46snaxwhen I tried to select a song in it it told me there was an error reading the playlist
09:40:20snaxthat strikes me as strange
09:40:34snaxit can't read the playlist it just created
09:40:59snaxso I'll stick with stock firmware until I'm sure the hd isn't going bad or anything

09:47:10LinusNok
09:47:27LinusNwhat was the exact error?
09:48:06snaxI can't remember the exact wording, but it said "error reading playlist" or "error accessing playlist"
09:48:19snaxI was browsing the playlist and hit play on one of the files when it happened
09:49:06snaxthe error message wasn't terribly descriptive
09:49:26LinusNthat sounds like if rockbox wasn't installed properly, or that your hard drive needs a scandisk
09:50:28snaxthere were approximately 3400 or so items in the playlist

10:31:20snaxprobably I've just never noticed the clicking before because I usually have the volume higher
10:31:45LinusN:-)
10:32:16snaxit makes a click when the red light goes off, so I assume it has something to do with spinning down the disk or locking the drive head (which I understand some portable hdds do to prevent scraping)
10:32:40snaxif I have music playing at normal volume I don't even hear it

10:39:10B4gderjust about full control
10:39:59snaxis there any way it can mess up the drive?
10:40:35snaxphysically, that is
10:41:28B4gderas long as usb isn't "active"
10:41:30B4gdernot that I know
10:41:31LinusNi think we can damage it if we wrote a program that repeatedly turned it on and off
10:41:44LinusNand let it run a few months
10:42:07snaxI saw someone on the forum complain that their hd died after doing a large USB transfer in rockbox
10:42:16B4gderit didn't
10:42:36B4gderor rather, I claim it didn't
10:43:06B4gderpeople draw all sorts of conclusions and fill forums with their scew view of the world
10:46:00Zagora long usb transfer is a lot less rockbox-specific drive activity than playing music.
10:46:22Zagorthe drive is spinning constantly, just like in millions of laptops around the world
10:46:37preglowwhat, you mean in the way it isn't rockbox-specific at all? ;)
10:47:26LinusNZagor: but if he did the transfer with an early version of Rockbox, the CPU might have run at a high frequency, generating more heat
10:47:56ZagorLinusN: i'd say that's also pretty normal for laptop drives to handle. many laptops run very hot.
10:48:02LinusNindeed
10:49:26LinusNbut onm the other hand, this isn't exactly a laptop drive, is it?
10:50:16LinusNi still don't think for a minute that rockbox caused the claimed hard drive failure
10:50:41B4gderdisks do break at times
10:50:41Zagoroh, this was a 1.8" drive?
10:50:52B4gderof course disks will break with rockbox installed as well

10:53:49snaxI had a hd go back in my Rio Karma player, and then the replacement had a bad headphone jack

11:17:33preglowjust a wildcard?
11:17:57preglowi'm going to try introducing the cache section again
11:18:22LinusNi believe it's a wildcard
11:19:28amiconnpreglow: The line alignment determines the use of burst mode for all memory areas (that are burst enabled), also for iram
11:19:51amiconn...but I guess the speed difference for iram is minimal, or even zero
11:19:58preglowyes, zero would be my guess
11:20:34amiconnpreglow: The *(.text*) wildcard is for linking .o files created with sectioned compilation
11:21:04amiconnSectioned compilation puts each function in a separate section, named .text_<function_name>
11:21:04preglowsectioned compilation?
11:21:08preglowahh
11:21:09preglowright
11:21:44preglowwhat's the use of that, again?
11:22:33LinusNto eliminate dead code
11:23:01amiconnYes, in conjunction with section garbage collection in the linker
11:23:26preglowi thought the linker was perfectly able to do this without sectioned compilation
11:23:47LinusNno it isn't, not on a function level
11:23:57LinusNonly file level, in libraries
11:24:20preglowhmm, that sucks
11:27:06Zagordoes anyone know if there's a reason for this, other than "hasn't been implemented"? it doesn't feel like it would be a difficult thing to add.
11:28:41preglowindeed
11:29:05preglowi'm convinced some linkers, at least, do this
11:29:20amiconnIiuc the linker can only act on the section level.
11:29:45Zagorpreglow: convinced as in "surely they do?" or "i've heard from good sources linker X does"?
11:29:53amiconnAll offsets within a section are already fixed at link time
11:30:07preglowZagor: i _think_ i remember testing that one did ages ago
11:30:14preglowamiconn: no, they're not
11:30:59preglowif you check a disassembly, you can clearly see that all offsets are zero
11:31:08preglowthey're set at link

11:33:28preglowat least as long as the linker knows which symbols are what, but that most of them do
11:35:31preglowis sectioned compilation something we only use for dead code detection, or do we use it all the time for some platforms?
11:37:14amiconnIt's used for certain parts only
11:37:53amiconnThe plugin library does it, to ease maintenance of e.g. the grayscale library, which would otherwise be a mess of several dozens of source files
11:38:33amiconnAnother part is bootbox for archos, for the firmware part
11:45:02preglowbut no, i'm quite convinced leaving out unused code/data should be possible within a section, but ld most certainly doesn't seem to be trying to do so
11:46:05LinusNamiconn: is there a conflict with Stop and On/Off on the Ondio?
11:47:29LinusNaha, long on/off is used to stop the music...
11:48:08LinusNand bookmark-on-stop doesn't save the bookmark when pausing
11:48:26amiconnYes, short OnOff is pause/resume, long OnOff is stop
11:49:00LinusNso we might want to extend the off timeout?
11:49:41LinusNat least so it has time to save the bookmark position
11:52:38LinusNi guess the soft poweroff should take care of the resume, but i'm not that sure about the bookmark

12:09:32[IDC]Dragonwell, the last line of my email was "Is that OK for you? Greetings, Jörg"
12:10:17[IDC]Dragonseems that it is, I got no violent complaints ;-)
12:10:28LinusNit definitely is
12:10:32[IDC]Dragonso, consider the wav codec as "open"

12:13:00LinusNso now we will have WAV-playback for the Archos! Yiheaa!
12:13:13[IDC]Dragonnow?
12:13:31[IDC]Dragonthere's a little task in the way... ;-)
12:13:38LinusN:-)
12:14:10[IDC]Dragonwe can munch on the 2nd 200kB with the codec
12:14:34[IDC]Dragonwhich RecV1 doesn't have :-(
12:14:43LinusNhow big is the codec?
12:16:02*[IDC]Dragon looks
12:16:22[IDC]Dragonin any case, it's ineffiviently stored in the Archos code
12:16:59LinusN32-bit ints with 20-bit data?
12:18:16[IDC]Dragonyes
12:18:32[IDC]Dragonwhich makes it almost 12 KB
12:20:11[IDC]Dragonpacking would bring it to 7.4 K
12:20:38[IDC]Dragonwe can try UCL on it
12:20:51[IDC]Dragonor simply load it from disk
12:21:09[IDC]Dragonwav play/rec means a lot of disk traffic anyway
12:21:11LinusNload from disk seems to be the easier option
12:21:16LinusNindeed

12:29:53webguest43hi !
12:30:25webguest43i would just like to ask again if we could have an option to purge the on-the-fly playlist in the playlist menu.
12:30:25LinusNwhich is roughly 1700k
12:31:36LinusNwebguest43: a "Clear playlist" in the playlist menu?
12:31:58webguest43yes please !
12:32:29webguest43i dont save playlists, i just add some folders and press play
12:33:02LinusNwhat happens if you stop and then add a new folder?
12:33:16webguest43it gets added at the end of the playlist
12:33:44LinusNah, it doesn't get cleared unless you start a new playlist...
12:33:50LinusNi get it
12:34:36webguest43wait, i think i am lying to you
12:34:50LinusNshame on you :-)
12:36:04webguest43i am actually lying. if you stop playback and insert a new folder the playlist is reset.
12:36:14webguest43i am standing in the corner shaming....
12:36:20LinusN;-)

12:38:40webguest43i asked yesterday about some refinements on the recording screen, any news there ?
12:39:04 Quit Moos (" Try HydraIRC -> http://www.hydrairc.com <-")
12:41:15LinusNwebguest43: what did you ask and when?
12:42:56LinusNthe choir recording?
12:43:01webguest43yep thats me
12:43:21LinusNand you wanted a peak meter?
12:43:30webguest43the main thing is that recording will overwrite its own files
12:43:40webguest43recording starts always into record-0.wav
12:43:48LinusNthe thing is that the river recording is just a test
12:43:59webguest43when stop, record is pressed again it records into record1.wav
12:44:16webguest43if you exit the recording screen and come back it will again record into record-0.wav overwriting the fiel
12:44:19webguest43file even
12:44:36webguest43yep i know thats why it is in debug, but it works, is stable I tested for more than 2 hrs
12:44:53webguest43a few tweaks and its ready for primetime
12:45:02LinusNwe will resume the work on the iriver recording once we release 2.5 for archos
12:45:31webguest43allright, its just that only really small things are missing
12:45:53B4gderthere are small things missing all over ;-)
12:46:00preglowthose things very probably arent missing the real recording code
12:46:13preglowno use in duplicating it when we'll integrate it properly soon anyway
12:46:33webguest43preglow: what do you mean ?
12:47:48webguest43alas, a small patch so recording does not overwrite its old files would still be great

12:49:33webguest43sure, thanks for the great work you are doing,

12:58:15LinusNyes
12:58:28webguest43thanks man
12:59:03webguest43its great that you decide to donate so much of your time over such a long timespan to this project
12:59:15LinusNtell that to my family :-)

13:00
13:00:19webguest43just to have a look, where is the recording code in the cvs ?
13:00:35amiconnB4gder: An archos v1 recorder can run ~4 hours with stock batteries and disk spinning all the time
13:00:56amiconnI tested this when comparing video playback with and without spindown
13:01:23webguest43from my recording test i would say iriver does 8 hrs with disk spinning on non-stock 1900mAh battery
13:02:04webguest432 hrs recording => 100% => 81%

13:04:40amiconnB4gder: Maybe the time limit is lower depending on how often we actually read the disk. Even with the disk spinning all the time, power consumption is higher with actual disk access than without
13:05:46amiconnIn the video playback case, a buffer refill happened every ~25 seconds
13:06:05amiconnWith wav playback it will be every ~10 seconds (44.1/16/stereo)

13:15:43[IDC]Dragonhow large is rockbox v1?
13:15:56amiconnLinusN: Is there a reason why you often add dummy functions instead of empty macros?
13:15:57webguest43linusN: where in the cvs can i find the recording code you thankfully changed ?
13:16:45LinusNamiconn: yes, because i don't want to change the firmware code just because the bootloader doesn't want it
13:16:59LinusNwebguest43: apps/pcm_recording.c
13:17:24webguest43thanks
13:17:52LinusNamiconn: empty macros would require #ifdef BOOTLOADER in the header files

13:21:11amiconnLinusN: Yes, what's the problem with #ifdef BOOTLOADER ?

13:48:03[IDC]Dragon quite
13:49:10amiconnI'll probably hack the wav codec a little when I have time, but real integration might have to wait until the playback engines are merged
13:49:30amiconnThe iriver playback engine is able to handle multiple codecs, with disk loading
13:50:01[IDC]Dragonand is not smaller, I reckon

13:51:36amiconnHmm. That would need a slightly different approach, imho
13:51:45[IDC]Dragonfor games and the mod tracker authors out there
13:52:45amiconnThe iriver playback engine is application layer, pcm playback is firmware layer
13:53:56amiconnIf we want pcm playback from memory, i.e. without the file playback engine, wav codec handling on archos would be totally different from codec handling on iriver
13:54:32[IDC]Dragonhow does the iriver talk, then?
13:55:33amiconnThere are 2 codec threads
13:55:51amiconnOne decodes the music, the second decodes the voice
13:56:01[IDC]Dragonone of them has to decode from memory
13:56:03amiconnThe dsp code mixes the output
13:56:16amiconnYes
13:56:29webguest43i am just highly impressed by http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/SimpleGuideToCompiling#From_CVS
13:56:39webguest43:)
13:56:48webguest43but its missing a vital .exe namely cvs.exe
13:57:33webguest43whats best way to fix that ? shall I register and edit the wiki ? or try to find the maintainer of the RockBoxDevKit
13:59:09amiconn[IDC]Dragon: The important difference is that music decoding, voice decoding and mixing happens at the app layer, then the pcm data is passed to the firmware layer for straight output
13:59:28amiconnOn archos, we can't output pcm and mpa at the same time
13:59:36amiconnOur codec is lower level...

14:47:17Zagorroku didn't exist when I bought the slimp3. they are a ripoff of it, even using the slimdevices server software without attribution.
14:47:56[IDC]Dragonopenroku? ;-)
14:48:09Zagornot quite :-)
14:48:20[IDC]Dragonas in openneo
14:48:30Zagorah, yeah
14:51:42webguest43i like roku design though
14:53:14Zagorif you acted on such impulses, you'd own an ipod and not be here in the first place :-)
14:53:58webguest43on the remote-mp3-playback note, do you guys think it would be possible to wire the remote-port of the iriver somehow into a computer ? so one could just use a computer to control it ?
14:54:24Zagoryes of course
14:54:32Zagorbut the "somehow" might be rather complex

14:54:56webguest43you assume ! i actually like the iriver 140 design more than the white boxes
14:55:11webguest43well its a standard protocol talking to the remote i2c ?
14:55:47Zagori don't remember
14:56:04webguest43cause I am sure for that there is usb dongles or something
14:56:14ashridahisn't the remote attached to the i2c bus? or is it a different bus?

14:58:27amiconnAfaik the remote button output signal is just a chain of resistors, wired to an adc inside the main unit
14:58:54amiconnThe remote lcd is controlled via SPI

15:28:29muesli-hi rasher, was there any discison in the end about negerpunk? ;)
15:29:20webguest43on another note, i got my iriver hooked up to my stereo, and every time until rockbox is booted it makes a horrible humming sound, does anyone know what I could do about this ?
15:29:46webguest43so basically while iriver is off it humms
15:30:23ashridahwebguest43: is it plugged into the charger at the same time? sounds like a ground loop. get a DC decoupled audio cable? use optical? :)
15:31:04webguest43it is something like that, its loud without charger and gets really loud with charger
15:31:13rashermuesli-: looks like it died down
15:31:15webguest43whats a DC decoupled audio cable ?
15:31:38ashridahwebguest43: one that only has AC coupling, thus, no ground loops
15:32:08ashridaharghl. must sleep
15:32:10 Quit ashridah ("sleep")
15:33:23webguest43wait !
15:33:29webguest43bugger
15:34:36webguest43anyone know how to do that ?
15:35:14flurblego to the store and say "can you sell me a DC decoupled audio cable" ?
15:36:30webguest43thanks for the how-to ! :)
15:37:26webguest43another thing: when I use the recording on iriver, after exiting recording mode, playback is not producing any sound output. I have to restart the iriver. any ideas anyone ?
15:37:48rasherRestart
15:37:54rasherThat's the fix
15:38:06webguest43whats the function call for that ?
15:40:54[IDC]Dragonwebguest43: you can get a cable with a transformer, common for car hifi
15:41:36webguest43thanks, will try to get one of them, it disturbs my cat every time I unplug the iriver
15:43:49webguest43any ideas on the playback problem ?
15:47:05LinusNwebguest43: the recording code is in the debug menu for a reason
15:47:25LinusNand there is also a reason why we don't work on it now
15:48:01webguest43allright, i thought maybe its just a funciton call missing
15:48:07LinusNprobably
15:48:28webguest43i presume if i do some mods in the current pcm_recording code its all wasted time right ?
15:49:15LinusNyes, if you change the ui
15:49:55webguest43so basically recording UI is working in Archos and will be ported to iRiver once someone has time ?
15:49:58LinusNbut not if you fix the playback issue, or other technical stuff
15:50:07flurblewebguest43: if you use it yourself it's not wasted time anyway, is it?
15:50:51webguest43fixed what i need already, its so cool !
15:51:20flurble:-)
15:54:28webguest43whats the difference in recording volume and recording gain ?

17:52:49rasherIt shouldn't
17:53:19Sandkingi was rather afraid about it since it isn't official as it is mentioned on www
17:53:49SandkingI installed it but it gives me error about the codecs... should I install them separately?
17:54:02rasherThat's strange
17:54:20rasherHow did you install?
17:54:24Mooswhat kind of files?
17:54:40SandkingI patched the latest iriver firmware
17:54:49*Sandking copied it, updated firmware
17:55:00Sandkingthen I copied rockbox.iriver
17:55:08rasherYou need a .rockbox directory as well
17:55:12rasherThat should be in the zipfile
17:55:13Sandkingto root and to .rockbox which I created
17:55:44rasherrockbox.iriver should be in root, .rockbox should be in root, containing lots of stuff from the zip
17:55:58Sandkinghm
17:56:03Sandkingok, let me check the zip
17:59:31Sandkingok - sorry - os x doesn't see the .rockbox dir
17:59:34Sandkingin zip file
18:00
18:00:54Sandkinghow old is this project?
18:01:05Sandkingand when was the first release?
18:01:42Sandking[i got a strange feeling that rockbox boots a LOT faster]
18:03:03Sandkinggod, how I love things like this... tweaking and all that... :D

18:05:42rasherThe iriver port, or Rockbox?
18:05:51Sandkingboth
18:07:03rasherThe iriver port is almost a year old, with the first usable (meaning "playing music") version about 3 months ago
18:07:58Sandkingis there a possibility playing movies on this?\
18:08:05rasherRockbox 1.0 was released at 2002-06-01 after about half a year of work
18:08:16rasherGreyscale like the jpeg viewer, yes
18:08:39rasherIt already exists on the archos players, so it's quite likely to be implemented on iriver eventually
18:08:39Sandkingok, I need to read all the docs and then ask questions :D
18:09:02SandkingI wish I had a paypal to support you guys
18:09:16rasherDo you have a credit card?

18:10:09rasherYou don't have to have a paypal account - you can just do a direct payment
18:10:09Sandkinggot to keep stones rolling :]
18:10:38Sandkinglike in a bank or a post office?
18:10:46Sandking[where are you guys from anyway?]
18:11:12rasherNo, just a "regular" credit card payment
18:11:22rasherI don't think you can manage without a credit card
18:11:32Sandkingi'll handle it
18:11:35fuzziehow do you do credit card payments without paypal?
18:11:42rasherThrough paypal
18:11:47rasher:-\
18:11:55Sandkingi don't :D
18:11:58rasherBut you don't have to have an account.
18:11:59Sandkingmy friend does

18:12:41rasher"Internal Server Error", good one paypal
18:13:05rasherfuzzie: I'm pretty sure there's a "I don't have an account" if you click the donate button
18:13:15rasherThat just takes you to a "direct" payment thing
18:13:48Sandkingok, I go to read all those faqs and docs, be back soon with questions :]

18:14:46*fuzzie donates $10 in the hope it might come in useful

18:28:32Danim really tempted to get one
18:28:45Danbut only because of rockboxes leetness
18:28:46Dan;p
18:29:14Danh10 + rockbox doesnt look like its gunna happen
18:29:39Sandkingyep - but it looks nicer
18:29:45Sandkingand it charges through usb

18:38:41Danwould you get a new h10 20gb for £170, or a second hand h120 20gb for £155?
18:39:04Sandkingare there 20 gb h10?
18:39:05rasherH120. For two reasons: Ogg support and Rockbox.
18:39:07Slasherinew.
18:39:16Dandamn right
18:39:23Danlooks like ill get it then
18:39:34Sandkingh10 doesn't support ogg? well i don't like it...
18:39:36rasherh10 is smaller though, if that matters a lot
18:39:42Slasherioh.. i mean h120 of course
18:39:45Slasherii read new h120 :D
18:39:49preglowi want a ipod nano, please port rockbox!
18:39:57Danlmao
18:40:05rasherpreglow: No, you do it.
18:40:11Danid port rockbox myself but
18:40:18Dan1) i dont know ASM
18:40:21preglowok, buy me an ipod then :P

18:40:41flurblesimple :)
18:40:46Danlol
18:41:18SlasheriDan: that's is not a big problem if you don't know asm because you still have to learn the processor specific assembly language
18:41:39Danouch
18:41:48muesli-when using this line in the wps %xl|a|mp3.bmp|16|111| where should the image be stored?

18:42:39muesli-theres %xl
18:42:51rashereh
18:42:55rasherMeant %xda
18:43:00SlasheriDan: and secondly you need some hardware you can use to load code to the cpu/flash/ram
18:43:26muesli-got it from gilbert http://home.comcast.net/~srgilbert1/Iriver/MarkVI.zip
18:43:34Danhang on

18:43:46Dantheres a 120 for £125
18:43:54Dansilver, but ill paint it
18:43:55Dansold
18:44:24rasherPAINT IT?!
18:44:32rasherWhyyyy
18:44:39rasherThe champagne is so lovely
18:45:10muesli-yeah...much lovelier than black...
18:45:15Sandkingi got black 120 and 3 days ago i brushed all the paint cause it was falling off
18:45:19muesli-rasher any idea`?
18:46:03muesli-yeah, black is a pain in the ass in terms of falling offs
18:47:22Dan1 last question
18:47:27Danhow loud is it?
18:48:33Slasheriit's "loud enough" :)
18:48:47Danwell
18:48:48amiconnmuesli-: It seems I found the cause for rb crashing with certain wps'es.
18:48:48Sandkingit can be LOUD
18:48:57Slasheriand the sound quality is great
18:48:58Sandkingbut it's all about the files
18:49:05Danyea ok
18:49:06amiconnThe load buffer is allocated on the stack - maybe it's a stack overflow
18:49:08Dansold as fuck
18:49:10amiconn1600 bytes...
18:49:26muesli-hum..but it worked..got it from another user
18:49:54muesli-does it crash when bmp's are not found?
18:50:06Danok and
18:50:17Danwhat are its downfalls?
18:50:18amiconnNo idea... I never tried a wps with images myself
18:50:24Danworst features?
18:51:01Sandkingwell it's design isn't best
18:51:10rasherDan: the joystick is not exactly stellar
18:51:11Sandkingthose edges...
18:51:20Sandkingbut I love the joystick!
18:51:31Danhmm
18:51:33rasherI can't see what's wrong with the edges..
18:51:51Sandkingimagine that you have pants and you hardly can get your player out - with joystick like this, controlling player is so easier
18:51:56Danis it easy to navigate?
18:52:01Sandkingyep
18:52:41Sandkingrasher - well, it's just my opinion - I would like something smoother
18:52:54Dankool
18:52:55Sandkingdisplay could be bigger
18:53:02Danthink ill regret buying it?
18:53:13rasherImpossible to tell, really
18:53:16flurble"imagine that you have pants" ?
18:53:21rasherDepends on what your expectations are
18:53:31rasherflurble: as opposed to a skirt, silly
18:53:31Danyea i suppose
18:53:38Dandid you regret buying yours?
18:53:42Sandkingflurble - :D
18:53:44rasherNot a second.
18:53:49Danwell then

18:54:08muesli-ish?
18:54:12Dan120£
18:54:16Sandkingflurble = i was talking about getting player out from tight pants :D thought shortcut

19:04:27MoosHi Slasheri: the infamous cfg files during playback bug is definitively fixed now? :)
19:05:38amiconnDoesn't look like an elegant fix to me. Stopping playback just because of config loading....
19:06:42Moosare they others ways?
19:07:48Mooshow it does in archos playback?
19:08:19amiconnIt doesn't stop
19:08:33amiconn...on archos
19:09:03Moosit's better :)
19:09:10rasherDoesn't sound like much of a fix to me
19:09:38MoosSlasheri ?
19:11:49Slasheriamiconn: reloading voice files (especially with a different size), there is no other way than stop the playback
19:11:54SlasheriMoos: i think so
19:12:43amiconnSlasheri: Yes, but it seems playback is always stopped when loading a config. I have a number of configs that don't touch the voice ui/ language settings
19:12:45Slasheriamiconn: but that's true, maybe i should add a check if the voice file buffer has has really changed
19:12:55Slasheriyes, i will fix that
19:13:09amiconnPlus, iirc playback is restarted if you change voice files from the menu
19:13:37Slasherihmm, that was with crossfade
19:13:48amiconnReally?
19:13:50Slasheribut could be implemented to voice also
19:14:06amiconnWhat happens if I enable/disable voice menus while music is playing,
19:14:06Slasheriyes, the voice file remains loaded once it has been loaded
19:14:15Slasherinothing
19:14:37amiconnor when I select a different language while voice menus are enabled?
19:14:48amiconn...and music is playing of course
19:15:05Slasherithat crashed the player previously, but that new commit should fix that
19:15:08Slasheri(i haven't tried yet)
19:15:55amiconnThere are 4 situations: (1) old language has voice file, new language doesn't. (2) old language has no voice file, new language has. (3) both have voice files (4) both don't have voice files
19:16:16 Join dpassen1 [0] (n=dpassen1@resnet-233-61.resnet.UMBC.EDU)
19:16:36amiconnThe voice files can also have different sizes
19:17:26Slasheriyes, if the new voice file is bigger that the previous one, then we have to stop/restart the playback
19:17:31amiconnI'm not sure whether it would be a good idea to make the voice file buffer fixed size, and refuse loading larger voice files
19:17:54SlasheriHmm, maybe not
19:17:55 Nick banan_ is now known as merbanan (i=banan@dalink.campus.luth.se)
19:18:07amiconnThe iriver playback code does a bit much dynamic reallocation for my taste...
19:18:20Slasherireally?
19:18:36amiconnyes
19:19:22SlasheriI think that dynamic allocation is necessary if we want efficiently use the buffer
19:20:08Slasheriand restarting the playback is enough to reinit the allocation
19:20:25amiconnI think we can get away without dynamic reallocation in most cases.
19:20:26Sandkingdoes rockbox has something like rating songs?
19:20:44rasherSandking: Yup
19:20:54rasherSee... hang on, wait for it...
19:21:00amiconnThe directory and playlist buffer sizes are such a case. They only take effect after a reboot
19:21:28Sandkingi love del dir option :D
19:21:41rasherSandking: http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/DatabaseV2 I think..
19:21:50Slasheriamiconn: for example changing the pcm buffer size requires a reallocation and there is no point in having something like 14s pcm buffer if crossfade is not used at all :)
19:22:12Slasheriah, you mean that
19:22:13Sandkingrasher - thx - I just wanted to know what to expect
19:22:16amiconnYes, but the reallocation doesn't have to be dynamic
19:22:26Slasheriaudio buffers etc. are allocated at the end of memory
19:22:52SlasheriHmm, what do you mean with that?
19:22:53amiconnDynamic reallocation increases complexity, and hence increases the probability of hard-to-find bugs
19:22:55Sandkingwill there be option to move dirs and files?
19:24:26rasherSandking: "rename" accepts a directory
19:24:45rasherthat is, if you rename "foo.txt" to "/text/foo.txt", it will be moved
19:24:57Sandkinggreat! :D
19:25:25amiconnSlasheri: Hmm, my second-last statement wasn't precise. I mean, sometimes we need dynamic allocation, but we don't need dynamic _re_allocation
19:25:37Slasheriah
19:25:50Slasherinow i understand ;)
19:27:38 Part ep0ch ("Kopete 0.10.3 : http://kopete.kde.org")
19:35:10Slasheriamiconn: do you think we should keep the voice codec buffer static once it has been allocated at boot?
19:35:51Slasherithen we would just fail to load a new voice file if it's bigger without stopping playback
19:36:07Slasheri*voice file buffer
19:36:18rasherIf opening a larger voice file it could say "reboot to load", set the config, and leave the current voice file (if any) in place?
19:36:42SlasheriHmm, yes, that might be possible :)
19:37:26amiconnHmm. If we set the buffer static, we either waste space (fixed size) or fail to load a new file if it's even a tiny bit larger
19:37:41amiconnOtoh, if we don't want this, we need to reallocate
19:37:46SlasheriTrue.. But not setting it static, requires reallocation
19:37:49Slasheriyeah :D
19:38:47amiconnI'm not that much concerned about the waste between various voice file size, but about the waste when disabling voice menus altogether
19:39:23SlasheriCurrently disabling voice menus requires removing the voice file and rebooting the unit
19:39:26Sandkingsomeone knows what is battery capacity in iriver h120?
19:39:45amiconnThe dilemma is caused by the iriver being able to support voice menus while playing music... something that is impossible on archos
19:39:48Slasheri(with disabling i mean the buffer space is freed)
19:40:29 Quit muesli- (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
19:40:46amiconnThe playback restart for crossfade change is a clean restart, i.e. the old buffer is completely discarded and everything is rebuffered?
19:40:57Slasheriyes
19:41:12amiconnHmm, doesn't sound too complex.
19:41:15Slasherithat's because the file buffer and pcm buffer sizes will change
19:41:38amiconnIs the pcm buffer and voice buffer allocated at the same "end" of the main buffer?
19:41:43Slasheriwe will just save the resume position, and resume playback from that position after buffer sizes have been adjusted
19:41:52amiconnAh, yes
19:42:06Slasherino, voice buffer is allocated at the beginning (memory allocation at boot)
19:42:16amiconnAha
19:42:23amiconnAny special reason for that?
19:43:27SlasheriHmm, let me think :)
19:43:59amiconnThat means that the larger-new-voice-file problem exists in current cvs
19:44:16amiconn(or even enabling voice ui)
19:44:29SlasheriWe could allocate the voice buffer from end also but we still would need to reallocate everything
19:45:11Slasherivoice buffer is allocated at boot if the voice file is present. File is loaded when we access the first voice sample
19:45:23amiconnWhat does "everything" consist of?
19:45:35amiconnMeaning, how much complexity does it add?
19:45:36Slasheriplayback buffers and voice buffer
19:46:27amiconnPerhaps there's a way to even lower the complexity, by doing all special buffer (re-)allocations in one function
19:46:37Slasheriit yes, it's better to place the voice buffer at beginning of the memory because we might need to use talkbox also
19:46:40amiconn...which would stop playback, reallocate all buffers, and resume
19:46:48Slasheriand if the buffer is at end, we run out of space
19:46:53Sandkingby mistake I'm listening right now to radio and mp3... :|
19:47:03Slasheriyes, that could be a good solution
19:47:13amiconnSlasheri: Talkbox clips are also loaded into the voice file buffer?
19:47:33Slasherii think those are loaded at the end of voice buffer (unallocated space)
19:47:38amiconnI thought they are loaded into the main buffer, and that's why they don't work during playback...
19:47:46Slasheriso playback has to be stopped before loading those
19:48:04Slasheriyes, they will overlap the main playback buffer
19:48:46amiconnIn fact I would not want the talkbox feature to work during playback, so the talkbox clips could simply use the main buffer
19:49:33Slasheriyep, that is the easiest (and maybe best) solution
19:50:45Slasherihmm, i think creating a new function to reinitialize all buffers is a good idea
19:51:01Slasherithat would also display the splash message "Restarting playback"
19:52:43amiconnYes, and it should only do that if the buffer sizes have really changed
19:53:31Slasheriyes, the function could check that and return if it detects no changes
19:54:12rasherSandking: go into the radio screen and exit by pressing stop
19:54:42Sandkingrasher - yeah, I got that, but shouldn't it suppose to happen?
19:54:43rasherSandking: of course, it should stop radio once a song is started - that's a bug
19:55:23Sandkingwill it be any use if I write here a suggestion?
19:55:45rasherGo ahead
19:56:43Sandkingok - when a mp3 is goind on and I'm browsing dirs it would be ok if when I'm in root and press left I would be back with "now playing screen"
19:56:58Sandkingit's a small thing, but maybe worth?
19:57:25rasherThis has been discussed.
19:57:38rasherIt'd confuse me.
19:57:49rasherThe filebrowser is the main window of Rockbox - not the wps
19:58:29Sandkingbut the wps is more important in terms of usability I think
19:58:43rasherAnd it'd also eliminate the possibility of going to the root from a deeply nested directory by pressing left a random number of times
19:58:57Sandkingand other thing - people like me, who were using iriver soft will be familiar with it
19:59:19Sandkingtrue
19:59:26SandkingBUT!
19:59:36rasherDoing something because "that's how iriver" does it is not really a good idea since it'd confuse the current userbase
20:00
20:00:05Sandkingclicking joystick again will bring you back to root :]
20:00:15amiconn(1) Rockbox doesn't try to mimick the original firmware. (2) Rockbox is multiplatform
20:01:01SandkingI agree to second point but I'm not talking about mimicking - rather about smooth switch
20:01:22rasherthere's already a smooth switch
20:01:24rasherpress play
20:01:29Sandkingbut it's useless when going back to second point :]
20:01:47Sandkingok, you got me :d
20:02:23CoCoLUS<fn~rasher> The filebrowser is the main window of Rockbox - not the wps
20:02:26CoCoLUSimho, thats not true
20:02:37rasherBut it is.
20:02:40CoCoLUS98% of the time the player is running, it will display the wps
20:02:52dpassen1By design, the filebrowser is the main screen that you get to all others from.
20:03:07rasherWhat dpassen1 said.
20:04:15amiconnCoCoLUS: The main, or root, screen is not necessarily identical with the one displayed most often
20:04:51CoCoLUSi always considered my iriver as a music player with a file chooser, not a file browser with a playing option
20:05:03amiconnImho having the file browser as the root does make sense. It's the logical order: First you need to select something for playback
20:05:41Sandkingis there an option to implement a... clock?
20:05:56CoCoLUSno one is argueing about the "start" screen, i just think what should be considered the "main" screen is the wps, since it equals the main function of the player... "playing"
20:06:07rasherSandking: not really (on h120)
20:07:00CoCoLUSselecting left while in the root of the file system does nothing currently, right?
20:07:14SlasheriSandking: that would be really hard because we don't have hardware rtc chip
20:07:26Sandkingok, thx
20:07:29rasherCoCoLUS: Right. And I wouldn't want it to.
20:07:34Slasherieven if it might be possible, the clock would get inaccurate
20:07:46rasherSay "option" and there'll be trouble.
20:08:02dpassen1CoCoLUS: its nice to return to root by pressing left more times than required.
20:08:10CoCoLUSi don't see the problem, users used to rockbox won't go left anyway, if they think it won't do anything?
20:08:41rasherIt's not at all logical
20:08:53CoCoLUSbut comfortable :)
20:09:21***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
20:09:30amiconnCoCoLUS: The problem is that you can simply press left a sufficient number of times now to get to the root
20:09:47amiconnThis wouldn't be possible if left in the root would call the wps
20:09:47dpassen1which is very useful
20:09:48CoCoLUSand you're afraid you'd "skip over" ?
20:09:57rasherNot afraid - certain.
20:10:22CoCoLUScan the button driver detect something like a "double click"?
20:10:32Sandkinglong click for sure
20:10:38dpassen1i believe so, wasn't that used in iriver fw?
20:10:51dpassen1click then hold or something similar
20:10:52CoCoLUSif long left would jump directly to the root, that would be nice
20:11:07rasherThat's an idea

22:00:33dpassen1ogg, flac, wavpack, and lame mp3 should be gapless (wav?)
22:00:38webguest01webguest: I will lost quality no?
22:00:50webguest43you need to use a recent lame i think > 2.92 or so
22:00:58webguest43(numbers could be wrong, do research)
22:00:59dpassen13.90 or better, i imagine
22:01:10webguest43so its maybe 3.92
22:01:19dpassen1i use 3.90.3 and i can verify it works
22:01:20webguest43it introduced the "exact length of song" header
22:01:25webguest01dbpower propose me to convert in mp3 lame files
22:01:35webguest43go for ogg
22:01:43webguest43install the ogg plugin
22:01:48webguest01not qualty lost?
22:01:53amiconndpassen1: lame 3.90.3 is oooolllld
22:01:58webguest43still lossy, but free
22:01:58dpassen1yes
22:02:07dpassen1amiconn: its the most widely tested version
22:02:11amiconn...and there was heavy work done on improving vbr
22:02:11webguest43if you want lossless you need flac or wavepack
22:02:20amiconnI use 3.96.1
22:02:29amiconnEven that is more than half a year old
22:02:37webguest01ok
22:02:41dpassen1i've been meaning to switch as 3.96.1 is very well tested and fast for −−preset standard
22:02:48webguest43mp3 is licensed, so imho evil
22:03:08webguest43go for ogg if you want lossy with quality 0.6
22:03:13webguest01I'm afraid to lost lot of quality with this transcodage :(
22:03:31dpassen1ive been experimenting with wavpack lossy lately
22:03:44webguest43well, transcode a few songs, listen to them, see if you find difference
22:03:58webguest01yes i'll try thanks
22:04:04amiconndpassen1: Yes, that's what I use for my ordinary encodings, occasionally using it with -nogap
22:04:04webguest43i couldnt hear a difference doing wma=>ogg 0.6
22:04:16webguest43it still sounded as bad/good as the original wma
22:04:19webguest01but need to have the same bitrate?
22:04:34webguest01or can I incease?
22:04:39webguest01*increase
22:04:43webguest43morale of the story: never let your girlfriend rip cd's, she'll do it in wmp
22:04:54webguest01:D
22:04:59webguest43ogg is not about bitrates, its about quality
22:05:10webguest43it will use the bitrate it needs to achieve a certain quality
22:05:15dpassen1they do have nominal bitrates, though
22:05:18rasherWell, increasing the quality should produce less artifacts
22:05:23webguest01I'll use the best quality
22:05:25amiconnwmp doesn't do accurate rips afaik
22:05:29webguest01oh :(
22:05:33rasherTry a few different quality-settings

22:05:40webguest01ok
22:05:47rasherSee what sounds "acceptable"
22:05:55webguest01ok
22:06:16webguest01I'll test just after eat a bit ;)
22:06:16dpassen1the prospect of transferring the wavpack lossy to my H120 and keeping the correction files along with the lossy for lossless playback on my computer is tempting
22:07:00webguest43yep i think this is a really cool idea,
22:07:29webguest43but i suspect data storage will become so cheap that in a few years we will laugh at this
22:07:34amiconndpassen1: If only the wavpack lossy was comparable to the real lossy codecs in terms of quality vs. size...
22:07:48dpassen1yeah
22:08:06dpassen1but on a portable, i'm not sure how evident the difference would be
22:08:13webguest43but then i think my q6 oggs sound fine, so what else do i need ?
22:08:23webguest43gotta reboot, bye

22:40:23Moosamiconn: what's about your xing headers fix?
22:40:32Moosstill puzzled?
22:43:20amiconnNew test is running
22:43:34amiconnI'm puzzlked about the broken recording with q=7
22:43:44Moos:(
22:44:05amiconnThe mas bitshifted it with analog recording, while I believed this would only happen with s/pdif
22:44:07Moossomething in head?
22:44:17Moosok
22:44:19amiconnThe strange thing is *how* it shifted it
22:44:35amiconnThe first ~96 minutes where ok

22:44:55webguest14hey dudes
22:45:10amiconnThe next ~136 minutes the data is shifted one bit to the right
22:45:18 Quit webguest14 (Client Quit)
22:45:40amiconnAfter that point the data is shifted one bit to the left until the end of the recording
22:46:02amiconn(which went on for another 505 minutes)
22:46:42Sandkingdo i have to run updater of database in rockbox each time I add something or delete?
22:46:52Sandkingor is it in some way autoupdating?
22:47:04amiconnI'll probably commit the xing changes in the night, if the test runs fine
22:47:16amiconn(around 02:00 cest)
22:47:35Moosgreat :)
22:47:44BagderSandking: there's no (auto) update available
22:47:49Moosalways working :D
22:48:15amiconnHowever, I really want to understand the strange things the mas is doing...
22:48:59Sandkingok, but database keeps info about ratings and all that stuff - right? so when I add some music or delete - does the db builds anew or is it only updating it?
22:49:12amiconnI'll do an experiment now (as I have to wait for the test anyway): I'll write a small program to correct the shift the mas has done, and check whether the files become playable...

22:49:24Sandking[i'm talking when I run the db soft]
22:49:31BagderSandking: there are two dbs, one with all the songs/tags and one runtimedb
22:49:32dpassen1you're confusing run time database and tag database, i think
22:49:51Sandkingok, right now I'm creating tag databse
22:49:58Sandkingwhat's run time db?
22:50:04Bagdercollects run-time info
22:50:12Sandkinghow to make it?
22:50:17Bagderlike ratings, playtime, play counter
22:50:22Bagderyou enable it in an option
22:50:40Bagderand it requires that you have a tagdb

22:51:35SandkingBagder - so when I change tag db, run time db keeps info about all the stuff?
22:51:42Bagderyes
22:51:49Sandkingthx
22:53:17Sandkingdoes rating have any meaning at all?
22:53:29Sandking[at the moment]
22:53:33rasheryou can show it in WPS
22:53:37rasherand search for it
22:53:43rasher(using the databox plugin)
22:54:06Sandkingcan I use it for shuffle?

22:55:18Bagdernope
22:55:20Bagdernot yet
22:55:39rasherYou can do [all songs rated > 8]
