01:22:40rasherXavierGr: Does your "fm preset file loading" patch ignore lines preceded by #?
01:26:07XavierGrin the presets?
01:26:56XavierGrbecause I havn'e changed anything in the way that the presets are saved inside a file.
01:27:12rasherAh
01:27:18rasherDo you know if comments are allowed?
01:27:30XavierGrI think not, let me check

01:28:02MirthoneistHey BirdFish, you there?
01:28:30XavierGrno rasher I don't think so.
01:28:44rasherOkay. Oh well, nevermind.

01:28:52rasher(shouldn't be too hard to add anyway)
01:29:00TiMiDhi
01:29:13XavierGrwhat do you want to do?
01:29:33rasherI'm just writing a script to scrape presets from the wikipage into a zip file
01:29:59XavierGrand what the # has to do with it?
01:30:03rasherand I wanted to add whichever comments were on the page (author, notes etc.) into the file
01:30:15XavierGroh
01:30:34rasherIt should be a 2 line patch to wherever presets are loaded
01:30:37MirthoneistOff topic of Rockbox, but does anybody know if I burn files, normally found on a CD, using Nero, would it boot like a normal CD?
01:30:49rasherif (line[0] == '#') continue;
01:30:53rasherthat's one line, really.
01:31:04XavierGryou want me to add it?
01:31:29XavierGrbecause it reads per line not per character?
01:31:44rasheroh don't know
01:32:04rasherI was just assuming it used the readline function
01:32:19XavierGryes that the function
01:33:32XavierGrhttp://pastebin.com/378270
01:33:40XavierGrhere is the saving routine
01:34:09rasherwell, the comments will just be gone if you change the file
01:34:24XavierGryeah
01:34:51rasherIt's mostly just to keep the notes from the wiki
01:37:44XavierGrto keep or it is tiresome to delete all this notes before making the script?
01:40:50MirthoneistYou guys working on Rockbox?
01:41:01XavierGryes
01:43:51rasherXavierGr: Neither, really
01:44:00rasherXavierGr: I could just make the script strip the comments
01:44:14rasherI just thought it'd be a nice touch if the files included the comments
01:44:30XavierGrI don't think it matters so much...

01:45:58linuxstb_Rasher:How about putting all the comments in a seperate text file in the zip file ?
01:46:07XavierGrhey rasher do you know why the devs chose to make all the files that need loading in boot (font, lang, wps) 20 character long?
01:46:21rasherlinuxstb_: I guess that'd work
01:46:38XavierGrI mean 20 * 5 = 100
01:46:48XavierGr260 * 5 = 1300
01:47:15XavierGrit is not so memory waste!
01:47:17linuxstb_XavierGr: I think it's because So they fit in the 512-byte config sector.
01:47:36XavierGrahh the hole config file is in that sector?
01:47:45linuxstb_Yep.
01:48:19XavierGrthat's why they use the set_file and they strip the path and extension...
01:48:48XavierGrit could be super to load and remember any file from every where though.

02:48:05rasherI guess we just lost a valuable developer then.
02:48:17XavierGrhaha
02:48:28XavierGrmaybe he will try to port that on rockbox

02:49:43preglowanyone know if mono streams have been tested with the playback/dsp engines?
02:49:58linuxstb_I haven't tested any.

02:57:35preglowin rockbox it's the part that's responsble for converting all audio to the common internal format, dithering, resampling, ec
02:59:26XavierGrso even wave needs to be converted?
02:59:52linuxstb_If it isn't 44.1KHz or 16-bit.
03:00
03:00:19XavierGr(44.1 or 16) or (44.1 and 16)?
03:00:45linuxstb_not(44.1 and 16)
03:00:56XavierGrah not
03:01:23XavierGrso any other sampling rate doesn't need converting? stange
03:01:27XavierGr^strange

03:02:06ze:p
03:02:22rasherEverything but 44.1KHz, 16-bit needs converting.
03:02:59XavierGrif(radio_get_status() == 0 || radio_get_status == 1)
03:03:04XavierGris this expression wrong?
03:03:14rasherradio_get_status
03:03:19rasherI assume you mean radio_get_status()
03:03:25XavierGryes
03:03:29rasherBut.. wouldn't that always be true?

03:03:54XavierGrthere is a 2 too! :p
03:03:57rasherAh
03:04:04linuxstb_What are the possible range of values? It looks bad to call the same function twice.
03:04:13XavierGr0,1,2
03:04:25linuxstb_Test for != 2
03:04:29rasherif (radio_get_status() != 2
03:04:35XavierGryou say then call it first save it to a value and then compare?
03:04:46XavierGroops I am an idiot!
03:05:12XavierGrit is so obvious oh my god, where are my programming skills!
03:05:26linuxstb_But yes - if there was a large range of values, I would save the return value to a variable, and then test that variable.
03:05:40XavierGrthank you very much
03:09:18XavierGrHmm loading and saving to presets works almost perfect.
03:12:16XavierGrI will try to solve that pop whenever someone leaves the radio (while playing) and then returns
03:12:48rasherWasn't that fixed?
03:12:53rasheror was it just identified
03:13:04XavierGrI said it to Linus the other day.
03:13:15XavierGrI think I know what is causing it.
03:13:31XavierGrthe radio_screen() sets the radio on
03:13:41***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
03:13:52XavierGrbut every time this function is called the boot of the radio appears too.
03:14:32XavierGrso I will put an if statement where it calls radio_get_status to see if the radio is already started.
03:27:01XavierGrno I was wrong it wasn't that! Though it must be it!
03:27:24rasheramiconn said he knew why it happened
03:29:27XavierGr#if CONFIG_CODEC != SWCODEC
03:29:31XavierGrthat is !iriver?

03:39:55random_mani go to download the daily build source code and my screen justs sits there adter i hit enter after it prompts me to input password
03:41:22rasherWhere's this? What prompts you to input password?
03:41:48random_manuhh on cvs screen hold on ill type it
03:42:29rasherAh, cvs login?
03:42:47random_manuhh oh i was sopposed to type the 2 commands. i thougth you were sopposed to type 1 of the 2 commands
03:42:53rasherAh, no
03:43:05rasherfirst the login one (which doesn't produce any output), then the other one
03:43:28random_manyeah
03:43:37random_manbut i am having a problem now
03:43:52rasherWhat's up?
03:44:20XavierGrto get the cvs you need to type into the shell:
03:44:24random_man Now, type daily filename.tar.gz, where filename is the name of the file... obviously
03:44:24XavierGrcvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@www.rockbox.org:/cvsroot/rockbox co rockbox-devel
03:44:43random_mani type that (yes the actually file name) and it says error
03:44:53rasherWhich error?

04:21:48BirdFishIf you don't mind my asking, is it generally accepted that there will be an iaudio x5 port?
04:22:02BirdFishI wasn't sure how everything was going with that whole situation.
04:22:21rasherIt's hard to tell
04:22:34BirdFishSo the project could go down at any time then?
04:22:37rasherThere was only one developer working on this, and we haven't heard from him for close to two months
04:22:47BirdFishOh, I see
04:23:16BirdFishWhat languages are generally used when creating firmware?
04:23:25rasherC
04:23:27BirdFishAh
04:23:42BirdFishI'm in the process of learning VB.net rigth now
04:23:53BirdFishSo I guess I couldn't be of any help there
04:23:54rasherAnd for low-level things, assembly language of whatever the device uses
04:24:00fuzziecombined with liberal amounts of architecture-specific assembler
04:24:06fuzzienot something for beginners :-)
04:24:10BirdFish:D
04:24:36XavierGrBirdFish if you learn good VB you are a step closer to programming
04:24:46XavierGrIt is the preogramming mind that matters
04:24:58XavierGrThen you could jump to C far more easily
04:25:25BirdFishSo which would you guys probably recommend? The iRiver H3xx or the IAudio X5? (with and without concerns for Rockbox) Because I'm definitely not happy at all with my H10 :/
04:25:36BirdFishXavierGr: that's what I plan to do
04:25:39BirdFish:)
04:26:04XavierGrwell I think that iAudio is a little better though I have never used it.
04:26:15XavierGrI have never used H300 but I have an H100
04:26:58BirdFishI've looked at those also. But for $400 bucks, I think I probably want a color screen (though I'll most likely never use it for videos or pictures)
04:26:58XavierGrIf you ask me I would take and H300 only for the suspicion that it might run rockbox
04:27:21rasherH300 port is quite a lot more certain than X5
04:27:27random_manok i have another probme for compiling my own rockbock could someone help?
04:27:46XavierGrOh and for the VB matter I was just like you. I learned VB6 and then started for a little C.
04:27:49rasherrandom_man: probably, just ask your question - don't ask to ask
04:27:58BirdFishAlso, I was wondering what was so special about rockbox (right now I'm interested because I like to customize my stuff and rebel against companies) But what does Rockbox really do for the player?
04:28:13random_manwhen i go to add a patch i get an error
04:28:17XavierGrNow that I program a little for Rockbox I must say I have extend my knowledge in C

04:30:45rasher−−binary shouldn't go after the <
04:30:56BirdFishBattery Lifetime is definitely a plus. You'd say it was very much so noticeable, or just statistics?
04:31:00XavierGrdoes it need the binary
04:31:04XavierGrtry without it
04:31:29random_mani dont know
04:31:59XavierGrOn the archos it is, but I am not sure for iriver
04:32:20random_manso type i type patch -p0 < fm-screen-remote.patch
04:32:20XavierGrit is sure the same though
04:32:51XavierGrI never tend to watch the battery I have changed it with one for 24 hours of music

04:33:38XavierGrI suppose this error is iriver specific?

08:13:09amiconnI could use static iram buffers, but I'm hesitant to set aside 320 bytes of iram just for lcd_blit()
08:15:41LinusNno, that would perhaps not be economical
08:16:30LinusNon the other hand, 320 bytes out of 96k of iram isn't a big deal
08:17:07LinusNwe could probably shrink one of the stacks by 320 bytes without any problem
08:24:00amiconnIt's 320 out of 48K
08:24:54amiconnI'll leave it as it is for now, it's simple to change that later
08:26:11B4gderthey do have wild USB ideas in that Neuros camp ;-)
08:26:32Vladomanbut Ethernet I think would be nice
08:26:59B4gderyes, lots of things could be nice
08:27:29Vladomandepends on whether it will be "pure" rockbox or running on top of Linux
08:27:55B4gderwhen considering ethernet etc, I would guess using linux will start making more sense
08:28:51LinusNabsolutely
08:29:00B4gderI run linux 2.6.12 on a ARM920 at work
08:29:17Vladomanwhat chip?

08:29:33Vladomanwhat does it do :-)

08:41:31VladomanOops, this NetChip2272 is a "peripheral" only, not a host, right?
08:41:37Vladomanso no ehternet :-(
08:41:40Vladomanethernet
08:41:56B4gderwell, they were previously talking about a separate host chip
08:42:06B4gderbut I'm not sure where they stand on that now
08:42:24Vladomanquote: The main reason we chose the NET2272 route is to enable other than direct-to-disk applications in high speed. Such applications include Janus (MTP), Ethernet-over-USB (RNDIS), fast serial as well as mass storage.
08:42:39B4gderah
08:42:57B4gderyou found any details on that chip?
08:43:04Vladomanoh, I get it, ethernet works by simulating a USB2Ethernet device, not by connecting one!

09:05:08Paul_The_NerdHeh
09:13:48***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
09:15:05Paul_The_NerdThis is a purely hypothetical question. (I'm reading a few articles on Hymn/Playfair and it was just an odd thought I have.) Wouldn't it be possible to add support for encrypted m4ps on Rockbox? (At least for windows users.) You could write a utility that gets the key info and stores it into a file, which could then be copied to the player, then when an encrypted file runs, it could use a...
09:15:06Paul_The_Nerd...version of those algorithms to decode the file for playing, without writing a decrypted version. Again, not a feature request, since I'm not a big fan of DRM at all, but just sorta an odd thought I had.
09:16:15linuxstb_Paul_The_Nerd: There's no point. The user can (and should!) run hymn on their PC to permanently decrypt the files once.
09:16:27Paul_The_NerdAs I said, just a random hypothetical
09:16:41Paul_The_NerdI avoud iTunes like the plague personally.
09:16:53linuxstb_I guess it's possible in theory, but IMO, there is no need to.
09:17:04*Paul_The_Nerd agrees on the "no need to."
09:17:09Paul_The_Nerd*avoid
09:17:50Paul_The_NerdIt'd definitely qualify as "feature bloat" anyway.
09:17:56linuxstb_I did "buy" one file from the iTunes store the other day - partly for research purposes to see how it (and hymn) worked, and partly because it was an exclusive-to-itunes-store track by one of my favourite bands.
09:19:04Paul_The_NerdHow much do lossless-format songs cost on iTunes? Or are they even available?
09:19:44linuxstb_No - 128kbps AAC only. In the UK it is 79p (about 1 EUR) per track.
09:21:03Paul_The_NerdUgh
09:21:07linuxstb_The iTunes store makes it scarily easy to buy songs. You register, enter your credit card details, and then just click on the "buy now" button next to a track. You are then asked to confirm the purchase, and the track is then downloaded into your iTunes library.
09:21:14Paul_The_NerdSee, I just can't stand not having a lossless version of my music
09:21:30Paul_The_NerdI'm even very wary about buying CDs now because of all these issues people have had with the way a lot of newer albums are mastered.
09:21:45linuxstb_The scary thing is that you can disable the "confirm purchase" dialog - so pressing the "buy now" is equivalent to a download link.
09:22:57Paul_The_NerdWow
09:23:08Paul_The_NerdI can see a lot of people easily spending a lot of money there
09:23:12linuxstb_And all of this is within iTunes, not your web browser.
09:25:23Paul_The_NerdIf you have confirm disabled, you could accidentally spend money.. that kinda sucks.
09:26:16B4gderyes, it sucks your money ;-)
09:26:19linuxstb_Exactly. And the worse thing is that you can only download each file once. If you accidentally delete the file, you have to buy it again.
09:26:30B4gderwow
09:26:45linuxstb_Apple's support site has a useful guide to backups as part of the iTunes Store help.
09:26:50Paul_The_NerdApparently, that's imposed by the software though.
09:27:08Paul_The_NerdDVDJon has an alternative iTunes store interface.
09:27:19Paul_The_NerdThat... doesn't encrypt them after downloading (since apparently that's client side)
09:27:27Paul_The_NerdAnd... seems to let you redownload purchases.
09:27:34Paul_The_NerdAt least... so this page seems to claim.
09:27:51linuxstb_That seems a big loophole in security if the encryption is done on the client.
09:28:00Paul_The_NerdI would agree.
09:28:04linuxstb_But it's been hacked anyway....
09:28:14Paul_The_NerdBut then, storing the decryption key permanently on the client is just as big, I'd say.
09:28:22LinusNone-click-shopping...so they have a deal with amazon :-)
09:28:25Paul_The_NerdHehehe
09:28:46Paul_The_NerdOf course LinusN.
09:28:50linuxstb_How can you have DRM if the decryption key isn't permanently on the client?
09:28:57*LinusN wants to patent 2, 3, and 4-click shopping
09:29:13*linuxstb_ wants to patent 0-click shopping
09:29:17LinusNand infinite-click surfing
09:29:32B4gderyou can buy my "shop-before-you-click" patent
09:29:50linuxstb_hehe
09:30:37Paul_The_NerdI wonder if you could patent "User points to something in the store, which the clerk then retrieves"
09:31:24linuxstb_Anyway, back to Rockbox, I've almost got a bootloader (compiled using the Rockbox build system and linked to rockbox.a) running on the iPod.
09:32:18B4gderrocking!
09:32:42Paul_The_NerdNeat
09:33:01linuxstb_Once I squash the last bug, I can then start on the drivers. LCD and buttons should be relatively easy, and then the ATA.
09:33:20B4gderyou on top of your lcd then?
09:33:25*Paul_The_Nerd points to his talking about the ITMS DRM decryption idea.
09:33:41Paul_The_NerdYou could actually have a method to sync with iTunes on the iPod port with something like that, couldn't you?
09:33:55B4gderI mean, wasn't that still not really figured-out?
09:33:57linuxstb_B4gder: Not exactly. But I've worked out how I can write to the part of the display the Apple flash firmware uses to display the Apple logo during startup.
09:34:00Paul_The_NerdAnd maybe convince "normal" itunes users that a better way exists..
09:34:04B4gderaha
09:34:28linuxstb_The problem with the new LCD is that the "set update region" commands are not the same. But the protocol for actually sending data to the LCD is the same.
09:34:41B4gderI see
09:34:50Paul_The_NerdThat seems kinda odd.
09:34:51linuxstb_So I can use the update region set by Apple's firmware - a 78x100 window in the middle of the display :)
09:34:58B4gderhehehe
09:35:23linuxstb_Hopefully the ipodlinux guys will sort it out. In the meantime, I can at least continue with the other parts of the port.
09:35:46B4gderyou in contact with any ipl guys during your work on this?
09:36:01linuxstb_I've had some brief chats on #ipodlinux.
09:36:31B4gderok, I was just curious
09:36:41 Join k-man [0] (n=jason@unaffiliated/k-man)
09:36:51B4gderI'm puzzled on their lack of devoloper community
09:36:57linuxstb_But I haven't discussed Rockbox - just specific questions about the hardware.
09:37:33linuxstb_I think it's just a lack of developers. "leachbj" seems to be the only kernel hacker.
09:37:41k-manB4gder, who's lack of developer community?
09:37:53B4gderk-man: ipodlinux
09:37:58k-manoh
09:38:22linuxstb_Putting Linux into the equation makes it even harder to find low-level hackers who can make things happen.
09:38:29B4gderyes
09:38:52B4gderlinux is quite lines of source to figure out ;-)
09:38:59B4gder"quite a few"
09:41:24linuxstb_How far would you want me to get before I start committing patches? I'm in no rush, just curious.
09:41:49B4gderin my view, you could commit already
09:41:57linuxstb_I want someone else to take the target #13 slot first :)
09:42:04B4gderhaha
09:42:13B4gderI don't see that happen anytime soon
09:42:35B4gderyou could easily take 20 or so ;-)
09:42:49linuxstb_OK, once I get the bootloader working, I'll clean things up and start committing.
09:43:16B4gderI've put my order on hold for a little while longer, due to personal stuff and general work load
09:43:23B4gderbut I hope to get one later on
09:43:57linuxstb_No problem. I'm happy to keep going.

09:59:07B4gderbut I don't think they'll be cheap either ;-)
10:00
10:02:02*Paul_The_Nerd kinda wishes more devices were like computers: There's a standard, and I can easily replace any parts I feel like.
10:02:18Paul_The_NerdI mean, there's clearly not just one standard among personal computers
10:02:22Paul_The_NerdBut there's few enough.
10:04:55zePaul_The_Nerd: mp3 players are like the opposite extreme... they seem to be generally considered unservicable for the most part, and afaict standard waranty/service-plan practice is just replacement
10:05:16Paul_The_NerdI know, it drives me nuts.
10:05:27Paul_The_NerdAt least with *some* of them you can effectively replace an HD.
10:05:42B4gderand they sell just like TVs or VCRs, nobody cares about the SW in them
10:07:55Paul_The_NerdI don't care about it in my TV, because there's really not much going on in there.
10:08:07Paul_The_NerdBut say, my set top cable box... I'd like to have some more freedom there. =/
10:08:24HClwhats a set top cable box?
10:10:20Paul_The_NerdCable Jack on wall -> Cable box (upon which channel guide information is parsed, and which you use to change channels etc) -> Television.
10:11:21Paul_The_NerdIt also decrypts the signal.
10:19:14HClah
10:19:18 Quit linuxstb_ ("Leaving")
10:19:19HClwhat would you want to modify about it?
10:20:11Paul_The_NerdWell, the program guide is fairly limited.
10:20:21Paul_The_NerdIt presents a list, and I can flag a program to remind me to change channels
10:21:44Paul_The_NerdIt'd be nice to have some customization options for the whole thing. Maybe the ability to remove channels that I will never watch from the main list, or at least list them after my favorites, as opposed to only listing in numerical order.
10:22:14Paul_The_NerdThings that more complex boxes do, but mine from a hardware perspective probably isn't incapable of.

10:32:06Paul_The_NerdFrom what I understand such things aren't necessarily planned. They depend on the right people having the interest in it.
10:32:31Paul_The_NerdAs it is, it looks like they've made some headway into decrypting the firmware, but it's not even really in the realm of "likely" that there'll be a build for it at some point.
10:32:36*Paul_The_Nerd doesn't know *that* much though.

12:42:18B4gderhowdy preglow
12:42:21_FireFly_hmm
12:42:50B4gderI'm asking you to use your imagination, I haven't solved all the issues in my head
12:43:12B4gderin general we should strive to decrease the amount of #ifdefs in the code
12:43:26B4gderimho
12:45:23_FireFly_the text "too big to fit" is currently only an place-older in the debug-menu
12:46:36XavierGrHave you thought that keeping the same code for all platforms will make the code humongous in future?
12:46:44_FireFly_until someone makes the output fit on the remote
12:46:48B4gderXavierGr: ?
12:47:39XavierGrI mean I know the advantages of keeping the same code for all platforms, but in future when rockbox moves to many targets it will be a hell with #ifdefs!
12:47:48B4gderXavierGr: no
12:47:55B4gderjust as I explaine
12:47:55B4gderd
12:48:03B4gderwe should decrease the amount
12:48:18LinusNhaving all #ifdefs in the code will be a problem, yes
12:48:20B4gderby being clever
12:48:30LinusNbut there are other ways
12:48:51XavierGrI think that the low level code must be programed in a such clever way
12:49:09B4gderyes
12:49:20B4gderand that's what I am saying
12:49:25XavierGrSo that when e.g tree.c comes to play, there will be no if defs
12:49:28B4gderfor example regarding the remote patch
12:49:46B4gderwell zero ifdefs might not be possible
12:49:53B4gderbut that's the aim of course
12:50:03XavierGryeah I know screen sizes and other factors
12:50:28XavierGrBut some parts of the code already contain a lot of ifdefs
12:50:36B4gderyes
12:50:49B4gderand?

12:50:57B4gderyou feel like fixing? ;-)
12:51:16XavierGrNonono I am not so advanced in this, yet... :p
12:51:39B4gderA general approach in Rockbox: do not do things for the future now, wait until we face the probem for real
12:52:13B4gderwe had many people saying we couldn't ever make rockbox on anything except archos
12:52:18B4gderdue to how the code worked
12:53:00XavierGrLazy type approach but yeah I know what you mean.
12:53:09B4gdernot lazy, reality-bound
12:53:16B4gder:-)
12:53:21XavierGrYou could say that too.
12:53:42B4gderit actually prevents us from doing stupid things now
12:53:45B4gderthat won't be used
12:53:58_FireFly_with the widget system on which timid currently works, it would be easier wouldn't be ?
12:54:07LinusNyes
12:54:21XavierGrOh Linus I nearly finished the load/save preset patch, and I found the cause of the pop bug when reentering FM screen. It should no longer pop now!
12:54:33LinusN\o/
12:55:47_FireFly_and i said some days ago that my patch is only a kind of place-holder until the widget system is ready to get into rockbox
12:56:09XavierGrAlso I increased presets to 64. My city Heraklion in Crete (Greece) has 48 stations and has 200.000 citizens so...
12:58:18XavierGrNo I will set the Preset mode. Because searching presets is not so intuitive now. And Myabe I will add a Make new preset option, because if someone wants to make a new clean preset he will have to delete every preset and then save it to another file (spoiling the first file)
12:58:24XavierGrno = now
12:59:56ep0chdo you mean left/right will cycle through presets instead of inc/decrementing frequency?
13:00
13:00:12XavierGrmake a choice for it
13:00:15ep0chcool
13:00:27XavierGr:)
13:00:57linuxstbDoes anyone have what is suggested to be the H300 LCD datasheet - e789r_101.pdf ?
13:01:02ep0chany chance it can be sorted by 'name' instead of frequency?
13:01:06ep0ch(fm presets)
13:01:26linuxstbIt's missing from here: http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/IriverH3XXHardwareComponents#LCD_Display
13:01:50XavierGrhmmm currently there is no sorting system in either way.
13:01:59XavierGrname or frequency
13:02:13ep0chyeah i had to edit the file by hand :(
13:03:10B4gderlinuxstb: try this http://forums.rockbox.org/index.php?topic=124.0
13:03:15ep0chXavierGr: are you also making the buttons consistant with the rest of rockbox?
13:03:30XavierGrit could be tricky to implement. Also a new option would be needed because someone might wanted the way he wants.
13:03:52XavierGrI haven't changed a single button yet.
13:04:21ep0chi have an outrageous idea, regarding rockbox and the radio...
13:05:28ep0chcould we have a file extension that calls the radio? so I could have a directory in root called 'Radio' and in there are radio files that contain the name and frequency of the stations
13:05:49XavierGryes it set to .fmr
13:05:57linuxstbB4gder, That contains a link back to the Wiki page :) That PDF doesn't seem to be in the Forum.
13:06:01ep0chahh ok
13:06:02B4gderoh
13:06:04B4gderhehe, sorry
13:06:26XavierGrBUT if you want a preset to be remembered after a boot you will have to store your presets to /.rockbox/presets/
13:06:37XavierGrelse in the next boot up it will be forgotten.
13:07:19XavierGrBut yeah currently when selecting a fmr file the radio will pop and load the preset. (and it will remember it untill you shut down)
13:07:55ep0chso i can have 20 fmr files each with an individual station
13:08:09XavierGryes
13:08:18ep0chbut left and right would not cycle through each fmr file?
13:08:32ep0chlike an mp3
13:08:37XavierGrno I mean cycling the presets inside the preset file
13:09:03XavierGryou have a filepreset with 40 stations and left/right cycles between those stations.
13:09:35XavierGrI dont think what you mention as a good idea.
13:09:38ep0chhmm, any chance of if only one station is in the .fmr file then it will look at the next file?
13:09:57XavierGrehmm why have one station in a file?
13:10:08XavierGrIt could get too complex to do that
13:10:22XavierGrJust select a different file.
13:10:39XavierGrThat's the normal and most intuitive way I have thought.
13:10:40ep0chbasically, i don't like the idea of the radio being treated in a special way - having to go to the menu and selected FM Radio.
13:10:53ep0chit would be nice (for me) if the radio was treated like any other file
13:10:58ep0chbut hey, that's just me :)
13:11:23ep0chdo you understand what i mean?
13:11:23B4gderyou mean any other music file
13:11:26XavierGrYou don't have to do that. You can select your favorite preset file (inside or outside /.rockbox/presets) and the radio will load and pop up
13:12:03XavierGrso there it is just selecting an mp3
13:12:09ep0chhowever
13:12:29XavierGryeah if you press right it will go to another station not another preset file
13:12:44XavierGrbut that's how a playlist works remember?
13:12:53XavierGran mp3 file is a single mp3.
13:13:09ep0chif i have 5 radio stations (FM1, FM2, etc), i want FM2, i would have to go to the .fmr file, which would load up FM1, and then navigate to FM2?
13:13:10XavierGrBut a playlist or a fmr file is a holder of many mp3s, stations
13:13:28ep0chno worries, i can live without it
13:13:38ep0chi'll shut up :D
13:13:50XavierGrno I think that the radio remembers your last station.
13:13:55***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
13:14:16ep0chwhat if next time i want FM5?
13:14:41XavierGrI think that you ask too much!
13:14:59XavierGrIhave never heard such approach for the radio before.
13:15:00ep0chyou think?
13:15:33ep0chexactly, i just think it would be consistent to have the fmr files treated like any other audio file
13:15:33XavierGrSo you say enable 3 modes? Frequency, preset and filepreset? Dont you think it is just too much?
13:16:04XavierGrbut an fmr file is to hold many stations, not one.
13:16:45XavierGrOthers: Which is your opinion?
13:18:02linuxstbA presets file is something you change very infrequently. I think a simple load option on the menu is sufficient,
13:18:31 Join tucoz [0] (n=81b17b04@labb.contactor.se)
13:18:36XavierGrand save to be able to make one on the go.
13:18:47XavierGr(As it is now on my patch)
13:18:54linuxstbYes, that would be useful.
13:19:24tucozHi, sorry for jumping in to this. Was reading the logs. But imho, I think linuxstb idea of having a base menu will take care of some of the navigation issues in rockbox
13:19:27B4gderbtw, I love your Sudoku-plugin linuxstb
13:19:42linuxstbB4gder, Thanks :).
13:19:49tucozme too, it is really fun
13:20:01ep0chbase menu? is that like the feature request i made a while back?
13:20:01LinusNit rocks
13:20:14linuxstbtucoz, I'm starting to be less convinced about having a base menu, but I'm going to continue implementing a demo build.
13:20:19tucozhehe
13:20:49linuxstbB4gder, Any luck getting your friend's Sudoku site to generate .ss files?
13:20:55B4gdernot yet
13:21:05LinusNwe're threatening him every day
13:21:12LinusNbut he's stubborn
13:21:23tucozBut after all, it is a dap, and not a pc. I think it is a quite nice idea. Imagine having the base functions plus settings in that menu
13:21:25B4gderhe has a really nice "difficulty" level too
13:21:31ep0chlinuxtsb: same as: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&group_id=44306&atid=439121&aid=1219252
13:21:32ep0ch?
13:21:38XavierGrGuys: Do you think that it would be would to: In the fmr file add a last line (after the sations) that will hold the last preset position of the user?
13:21:42linuxstbSomeone should get the Rockbox Sudoku generating random games. I've got other things I would prefer to do at the moment.
13:22:03XavierGrThat way when loading different fmr files it would jump automatically to the last preset position.
13:22:08tucozlike, browse files, record, fm-radio, settings in the base menu
13:22:22linuxstbep0ch: Yes.
13:22:42ep0chcool,
13:23:58tucozI posted a link to a c implementation of a sudoku program with a generator in the PluginSudoku page on the wiki
13:24:45tucozI am not sure if it is easy to just steal that function though. Haven't really looked at the code yet. Just a glimpse

13:29:43ep0chis it just me or is the 'quick menu' a bit annoying if you accidently hit 'shuffle', it shuffles immediately, and so you have to change it back and it unshuffles immediately. IMHO actions should take place when you exit the quick menu.

13:30:28webguest54thanks, I'll try again
13:30:47tucozep0ch: maybe not when you exit, but if that is a problem, perhaps a confirm should be in place
13:31:03tucozI do not use shuffle, so what do I know ;)
13:31:24ep0chi dont either, but i just hit it accidently every so often
13:31:25XavierGrLike tucoz, I don't shuffle either
13:33:19tucozMight be a good idea to have stuff like shuffle with a confirm. The other options just sets a flag, right?
13:34:04ep0chthat would slow down the quickness of the quick menu, why not just perform that action on exit?
13:34:05webguest54is there any way I can display cfg files in root without having show files set to all ?
13:34:35tucozwebguest54: not that I know of
13:34:49webguest54hmm, thanks
13:35:14tucozif the configs are under /.rockbox/*.cfg then you can use browse config in the settings menu
13:35:31tucoz...and call the viewer I think
13:35:35ep0chcan you associate the .cfg in viewers.config?
13:35:49linuxstbtucoz: My initial idea was to simplify the Rockbox UI by making everything start from the main menu. But I'm thinking that it will become too cumbersome to have to go through the menu.
13:35:49webguest54yep, just trying to figure a short way to access cfg files
13:36:10linuxstbBut that can probably be solved with shortcuts. I'll see how my prototype develops.
13:36:14ep0chlinuxstb: let the user set a default screen?
13:36:22tucozlinuxstb: ok, I'll look forward to testing it out.
13:37:02linuxstbI want something that is easy for a new user to use (i.e. every feature available in nice menus), but also something that is quick to navigate for advanced users.
13:37:08tucozIn my mind it sound better though. More intuitive at least
13:37:32tucoznot "hmm, what button should I use for that". At least for beginners
13:37:50webguest54why nit put quick access to cfg files in the 12 o'clock quick menu position ?
13:39:03LinusNwebguest54: everybody wants their favourite feature in the quick menu
13:39:05ep0chI believe Cassandra had something else in mind for the 12 oclock
13:39:05 Quit tucoz ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
13:39:19ep0chheh, i wanted crossfade there :)
13:39:23webguest54heh, I guess so,
13:39:56webguest54an option for an option to have it there :)
13:42:26amiconnwebguest54: .cfg files *are* visible in the root if you have set 'show files' to 'supported' (or 'all')
13:43:05amiconnThat's how I manage my various configurations - much faster than 'Show config files' in the mneu
13:43:47*webguest54 tries
13:43:48markunlinuxstb: Instead of the root menu you could also have a menu that pops up (like the one in rockboy) to do the same.
13:44:55linuxstbmarkun: I think Rockbox needs both. My idea is that the root menu is the "home" - i.e. you always go back to it when leaving a screen. So the WPS and browser screens for example are "on top of" the menu. Not the other way around.
13:45:02Slasheriamiconn: hmm, do you think the stack overflow error message is still working or was it that works only for codecs/plugins?
13:45:24markunlinuxstb: I know what your idea is. It was just another suggestion.
13:45:49linuxstbOK, but that's not what I want :).
13:46:06amiconnSlasheri: Stack overflow detection should work for all threads, but of course it can't be bullet-proof
13:46:47amiconnStack overflow means something gets overwritten, and rockbox might crash before being able to detect the overflow
13:46:54Slasheriamiconn: i had a too deep recursion in the code (now completely removed) a day ago, but the system only crashed or displayed I00 or something like that (can't remember) but not the stkoflw
13:46:56markunamiconn: Can you explain how stereo width works for values greater than 100?
13:47:29ep0chlinuxstb: when rockbox starts up it will go to your root menu? Do you plan on adding an option so that on startup the user to default to 'browser mode', and from there he can left click to go to the root menu?
13:47:48ep0chs/to/can
13:48:26Slasheriamiconn: ah, so it works only if the process can yield before it has used too much of the stack?
13:48:43linuxstbep0ch: What I'm planning is just to develop a prototype that makes the main menu the "root" of Rockbox. What actually gets implemented will be the results of the subsequent discussions.
13:48:55ep0ch:) ok
13:49:25webguest54ah supported works well, what is the purpose of the Rolo" feature?
13:51:10LinusNto manually load and start a firmware binary
13:52:06webguest54thanks, so there's no harm if I accidently acitvate it like I just have

13:56:06SlasheriLinusN: or what do you think about committing that code soon? (with the option to skip caching at boot disabled)
13:56:18Slasheriit's much faster
13:56:20markunNow it takes about 8 seconds here I think.
13:56:21amiconnmarkun: The stereo width formula is in firmware/sound.c, lines 432ff
13:56:25XavierGrI think it is great slasheri!
13:57:21LinusNSlasheri: gimme da patch
13:57:29LinusNi want to try it first
13:57:43SlasheriLinusN: ok, i will put it to the web soon :)
13:57:47amiconnmarkun: The basic idea is simple. For stereo width <100%, the left signal is mixed partially into the right channel and vice versa
13:58:22amiconnFull amplitude will yield mono of course
13:59:04amiconnFor stereo width >100%, the left signal is also partially mixed into the right channel and vice versa, but with inverse phase
14:00
14:00:05amiconnFull amplitude will give a virtual stereo width of infinity, meaning the mono signal part is completely cancelled
14:00:12amiconnThat's what karaoke mode does
14:00:44markunamiconn: ok, but what is the full amplitude? It's more than 200%?
14:01:19ep0ch*** ok my iHPs HD is now officially dead, does anyone have a single platter HD I can buy from them? ***
14:02:39amiconnmarkun: Of course the total amplitude has to be scaled down in order to avoid clipping
14:03:15amiconn...at least for widths <100%
14:03:27XavierGreP0ch: are you sure? what happened?
14:04:12ep0chwell i've just about recovered most of tunes from it, so i now decided to do a full format on the drive...
14:04:14XavierGrIf you want to buy an HD for you H100 then try www.dapstore.com. I got my 60Gb HD from there and no worries.
14:04:27ep0chbut the format is not going well
14:04:31amiconnThat's what the formula in sound.c does. Only thing to note is that the MAS mixer also inverts, so 100% is -1, not +1
14:04:32XavierGrAnd it never got back?
14:04:47ep0chXavierGr: thanks for the link i'll take a look
14:05:14markunamiconn: I think I will give it a go. Some albums (Beck, Hendrix, Beatles) don't sound so good with headphones because of the extreme use of stereo.
14:10:39amiconnHehe. My standard stereo width setting for earphones is 120%...
14:10:53amiconn(doesn't work on iriver yet)
14:14:30preglowand wont until someone figures out how to fix the latency issue :/
14:16:33preglowunless a five second latency is acceptable for sound changes, which i really dont think
14:16:55XavierGrdoes anyone know a quick way to print an integer with splash?
14:17:03_FireFly_ok i could remove some #ifdefs in my patch it can be reviewed hier: http://home.arcor.de/s.wezel/lcd-remote.patch
14:18:14Slasheripreglow: one way to "fix" that could be temporarily limiting the pcm buffer length while browsing the sound settings
14:19:07preglowdon't know what i think of temporary fixes like that
14:19:14preglowmakes it far too easy to ignore the fact that there's a real issue
14:19:35ep0chor have another buffer albeit very small that reads from the pcm buffer?
14:20:13linuxstbIs the only solution to move the DSP closer to the DAC? i.e. have a large buffer for unprocessed PCM data, and a tiny buffer the other side of the DSP?
14:20:16Slasheriep0ch: hmm, that could be one possible way to do it
14:20:42preglowlinuxstb: would be a good solution, but wasting memory, of course
14:20:47ep0chsnap :p
14:21:02linuxstbWhy wasting memory? Because we store 32-bit samples?
14:21:02LinusNXavierGr: splash(HZ, true, "%d", myint);
14:21:21ep0chits not a waste if it fixes the problem
14:21:29Slasheripreglow: and the other solutions of telling codec the exact position where it should start decoding pcm data again would be very complex and hard to get working properly
14:21:30XavierGrso it works like the printf? I though it can take only chars and strings!
14:21:42LinusNjust like printf
14:23:34ep0chwouldn't this small DSP buffer have to have a mega high priority though?
14:24:22Slasherithen it couldn't do crossfading
14:24:38ep0chthat could still be done in the pcm buffer? :s
14:24:47Slasherino if it's unprocessed
14:24:53Slasheri(no dsp at all)
14:25:18Slasheribut maybe processed pcm buffer and post-processed final output buffer
14:25:23ep0chok two buffers, one big one small, the DSP can affect either one it chooses
14:25:36Slasherihmm, maybe
14:25:39preglowehh?
14:25:55preglowthen we'll have to write dsp functions for both shorts and longs
14:26:09pregloweverything will have to be duplicated
14:26:44ep0chwill all functions need access to both buffers?
14:27:36 Quit Febs (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
14:28:23XavierGrLinus: Do you remember if you have a value that holds how many presets exist in the list?
14:28:54XavierGrforget it I found it num_presets
14:29:43amiconnI think the dsp might need to be split in 2
14:30:03preglowlike one part where precision isn't a problem?
14:30:06preglowlike channel width?
14:30:29preglowthe usual archos settings
14:30:39amiconnFirst part being the dsp that we have now, doing resampling, unify sample format etc, where latency isn't a problem
14:31:12amiconnSecond part would do the time critical things, rendering to a very small output buffer
14:31:29webguest54preglow, hows the eq comming on ?
14:31:33preglowi don't see why this seperation is necessary
14:31:41preglowwebguest54: not at all
14:31:44amiconnIt could run in the isr setting up audio dma, but then it must not take too much cpu time
14:31:57preglowwebguest54: i've got a prototype going, but not ported to target yet
14:32:00_FireFly_preglow how about the wavpack codec ??
14:32:20preglow_FireFly_: might look at it later, i've got some other coding to do first
14:32:26_FireFly_ok
14:32:27webguest54is it a comprehensive eq?
14:32:37preglowwebguest54: as comprehensive as you want it
14:32:49XavierGrcoprehensive meaning?
14:32:50preglowi haven't thought about a gui
14:33:07preglowamiconn: too late, i don't want 16 bit samples for precision reasons
14:33:25preglowamiconn: i want all dsp to run on the full precision buffer
14:33:38webguest54XavierGr, comprehensive= full featured
14:35:05preglowamiconn: and again, i don't see why this seperation is needed, shouldn't all audio adjustments be low latency?
14:35:41preglowamiconn: as for the resampler having no issues with latency, that's wrong, pitch adjustments will need to adjust the resampler on the fly

14:36:22Slasheripreglow: Hmm, what about possible echo and reverb-plugins? I think they need more buffer
14:36:34preglowin what way?
14:36:43preglowthey'll need additional ring buffers, yes
14:36:47preglowbut i don't see how that enters into this
14:36:55Slasheriah, ok..
14:37:16Slasheribut crossfading at least needs a long buffer somewhere
14:37:46preglowindeed
14:37:54preglowwe can't dispense with the long main buffer
14:38:37preglowand the simplest possible solution to this is keeping this buffer full precision, and applying dsp in the other end of it
14:38:55preglowbut other solutions not requiring the wasted memory would be nice
14:39:27linuxstbI can't think how there can be any other solutions.
14:39:33preglowno, me neither, really
14:39:50preglowthe traditional low latency way is just keeping a very small buffer
14:40:03linuxstbAnd as ep0ch said, it's not wasted if it means very low latency and high audio quality.
14:40:21preglowwe could of course have a switch
14:40:25preglow'low latency on/off'
14:40:39preglowif it's off, the buffer goes back to being 16 bit, and dsp is applied straight after decoding, like now
14:40:54Slasheripreglow: and it's also possible to do just that, we could set a max buffer usage limit at anytime we need
14:41:05linuxstbAs long as you call it a switch, and not an option, it will be OK :)
14:41:15preglowas far as i know, this setting would not add much complexity at all
14:41:43preglowSlasheri: sure, but then crossfading and low latency would not work at the same time
14:42:03Slasheripreglow: hmm, true
14:42:36ep0chif you dont want to waste memory reduce the main buffer a bit to compensate ;)
14:43:06linuxstbDo we need 32-bits? Would making it 24-bit be more trouble than it's worth?
14:43:25Slasheripreglow: but it's very rare user wants even listen to crossfading while trying different sound settings
14:43:45XavierGrOk here is a interface wuestion: If radio is on preset mode (left/right cahnges presets instead of frequencies) what long left/right would do. Frequency scanning or Preset Scrolling?
14:43:57preglowlinuxstb: yes indeed it would
14:44:15Slasherilinuxstb: i doubt we can make any audio buffer 24-bit because that would dramatically affect the performance
14:44:30preglowlinuxstb: or not really, we'd need to extract the samples before we can use them, would just need a bit more cpu
14:44:41ep0chXavierGr: how about nothing? :)
14:44:53webguest54can I delete the rockbox file which has the 'Rolo' stuff
14:45:27Slasheriwebguest54: hehe, if you delete that you can no longer boot in to rockbox :D
14:45:34preglow24 bit would need another costly stage just for saving and retrieving from the main buffer, though
14:45:39XavierGrep0ch: it seems like an option, but nothing it seems lazy.

14:47:03amiconnSlasheri: Why does crossfade need a large pcm buffer?
14:47:05ep0chXavierGr: Frequency Scanning makes the mode inconsitent
14:47:10XavierGryes but let's say you have 64 presets and you are in the middle. If you want to go at the first station holding left is more right
14:47:35XavierGrep0ch: I agree on that, that why I say preset scrolling.
14:47:43XavierGr^that is
14:47:49ep0chXavierGr: ok ok, so preset scrolling takes you to the first or last preset?
14:48:02preglowamiconn: so we dont need to run two codecs in parallel
14:48:18preglowwhich would entail even more codec swapping on top of what we do now for voice ui
14:48:21amiconnSlasheri: Also, how large (in terms of seconds) is the pcm buffer if crossfade is disabled?
14:48:22XavierGrit scrolls but more quickly. 25-24-23-22-21-20 e.t.c fast and with one button
14:48:23Slasheriamiconn: it needs to access the samples from previous song to do the crossfading/mixing
14:48:25LinusNXavierGr: i'd say preset scrolling
14:48:37Slasheriamiconn: it should be 2s
14:48:39amiconnSlasheri: Ah, yes. Maybe I have a solution for that :)
14:48:40LinusNslowly, so you can hear each preset
14:48:45Slasherihmm :)
14:49:28XavierGrHmm slowly eh? I will have to think for that first before implementing?
14:49:35Slasheriamiconn: what kind of solution are you thinking about?
14:49:40amiconnSlasheri: Could that be lowered?
14:49:48amiconn(the 2 seconds I mean)
14:49:53XavierGrDoes the HZ in splash can be used for time latency?
14:49:54Slasheriamiconn: not much without experiencing possible problems
14:50:15amiconnMy idea regarding crossfade is as follows:
14:50:23Slasheriat least 1s is not long enough for the highest bitrate files
14:50:26LinusNXavierGr: for what?
14:50:36amiconnThe (standard) pcm buffer is always small, i.e. the 2 seconds
14:51:12amiconnIf crossfade is enabled, there would be a second pcm buffer with the length of the crossfade setting
14:51:51Slasheriamiconn: ah, hmm that sounds good in fact :)
14:51:54LinusNXavierGr: the first argument to splash() is the number of ticks to wait before returning from splash()
14:52:04LinusNit can be 0
14:52:05amiconnThe end of the old track would be decoded into that, and the dsp would take the old-track samples from there to mix with the new-track samples, then put that into the short main pcm buffer
14:52:42preglowexactly how does this differ from what we do now?
14:52:47preglowapart from using more memory, that is
14:53:39amiconnpreglow: It uses *slightly* more memory (2 seconds worth of pcm audio), but it would keep the lower latency of non-crossfade mode for the dsp
14:54:28XavierGrLinus: But is there a function to delay the scrolling? Because if I call splash, a blank screen will appear between calls.
14:54:51LinusNscrolling?
14:55:13XavierGrYeah you said scroll the presets slowly, I will need a time delay for that.
14:55:15preglowas a matter of fact, proper low latency can't be done for crossfading unless we decode two tracks in parallel
14:55:41preglowehh
14:55:42preglowforget me
14:55:44LinusNwell, i didn't know you wanted to use splash for the preset scrolling
14:56:16XavierGrwell i asked if there is something similar with the delay of splash.
14:56:23LinusNmy idea was to switch to the next preset
14:56:37 Nick TiMiD[zZZ] is now known as TiMiD (n=TiMiD[FD@asgard.valombre.net)
14:56:39LinusNalbeit more slowly than the regular key repeat
14:56:40TiMiDhi
14:56:52XavierGrhi TiMiD
14:57:09LinusNa normal delay is done with sleep(), but that is not recommended in this case
14:57:12_FireFly_hi TiMiD
14:57:24XavierGrSo what do you suggest?
14:57:41XavierGrI must use something for delay.
14:57:51LinusNpretty much the same think as the frequency scanning does
14:57:59LinusNthing
14:58:54LinusNbut use TIME_AFTER() to pace the switching

15:01:35XaviAs I was saying: Linus: The frequency scanning routine uses the sleep function which you previously said that it is inapropriate.
15:02:40preglowbut anyway, no better alternatives than a full precision buffer for low latency?

15:08:23TiMiDbut in the test program, list is working fine, and status bar as well
15:08:32TiMiDtested on all models with simulator
15:09:15Xaviso what are these files?
15:09:28XaviYou will include them if there is a remote for the target?
15:09:36TiMiDno
15:09:46Xavithen?
15:10:01TiMiDthese files are a rewrote / adaptation of the code for handling display

15:32:02ZagorI'm afraid scroll speed on archos may suffer terribly with your approach, TiMiD :-(
15:32:03_FireFly_jupp the simulator doesn't work with a glibc which has only nptl support
15:32:46TiMiDZagor: because I redraw the screen at each refresh ?
15:33:10Zagorno, because each redraw does so much work

15:43:40TiMiDok
15:44:06TiMiDi will make you a build which scrolls without keypresses :)
15:44:18Zagorpressing DOWN repeatedly does strange things. no scrolling, but seems to make the list shorter
15:44:31Zagorthat won't help me compare with the old code.
15:44:39TiMiDyes

15:45:54TiMiDuploaded
15:46:08Zagorwhat did you change?
15:46:18TiMiDit should scroll as fast as it cans
15:46:25TiMiDwithout a keypress
15:46:34Zagorcan't you make it recognize key repeat instead?

15:47:32TiMiDthe code for that is in tree.c and I wanted to do this when integrating the code to tree.c
15:47:34Zagorthat's not what I'm saying
15:47:47ZagorTiMiD: ok, no problem
15:48:02TiMiDhere it's just a small test program so that I can see everything is working as expected
15:48:02XavierGrZagor: Does it have any lag?
15:48:17ZagorXavierGr: can't test that yet
15:48:22XavierGroh
15:48:31TiMiDjust dl http://timidzone.free.fr/pub/rockbox/remote/ajbrec.ajz
15:48:49TiMiDand see how fast is the max speed
15:49:06XavierGrOk another interface question: Do we want somewhere in the screen to declare that Preset Mode is on (preset scanning instead of frequency)?
15:49:10Zagorwell just scrolling really fast doesn't test what needs to be tested. we need to verify it scrolls as fast as the button queue is filling up with keypresses.
15:49:37Zagorso that when the user lets go of the button, the scroll stops immediately and doesn't continue a couple of lines
15:49:45Zagorthis has been an issue before
15:49:48TiMiDZagor: but if it scrolls fast the it should be fast enough
15:50:09Zagori hope so, yes. we'll simply have to wait and see.
15:50:13TiMiDwhy would scroll continue ?
15:50:29TiMiD(the list code doesn't handle buttons)
15:50:35Zagorbecause the button queue still has unprocessed button events
15:50:37LinusNbecause ot scrolls slower than the key repeat
15:50:45TiMiDok
15:53:38TiMiDbtw, do you think the approch /api is good or should it be something else .
15:53:42TiMiD?
15:56:28ZagorI'm not sure. On one hand I think it limits what can be done, since everything must now be a widget.
15:57:39Zagoron the other hand it's a good solution.
15:57:44Zagors/good/elegant/
15:58:02TiMiDI dont want to call this a widget :p
15:58:17TiMiD(a widget is lot more generic than this)
15:58:48Zagorwell if it handles menus and file tree, that's plenty generic for us
15:59:23TiMiDsure it would avoid duplicating code (even if menus and filetree are not exactly the same)
15:59:31Zagorbtw, simply add "case BUTTON_RIGHT | BUTTON_REPEAT:" after "case BUTTON_RIGHT:" to enable key repeat.
15:59:43TiMiDoh :)
16:00
16:00:20TiMiDI recompile it

16:08:26Zagorspeed looks good

16:41:26XavierGrGreat! The load/save fm preset patch is finally done and workable!
16:41:40rasherlinuxstb: if that's how to fix it, sure
16:42:02rasherall c files in libmad for example
16:42:27rasheronly changes, copying, copyright and credits is included
16:42:58rasherwell, FILES has codecs/libmad/*
16:43:02rasherI suspect something else is up
16:46:27linuxstbLooks that way. Lets wait for Bagder to come back.
16:47:48rasherOn a related note, libalac isn't there
16:48:24_FireFly_in the daily-builds there is libalac
16:49:27rasherI meant in apps/FILES
16:49:28preglowthe source packer has been having some problems lately
16:49:53rasherMaybe it should just do a cvs checkout and delete the cvs control files?
16:50:58_FireFly_rasher also in apps/FILES in the daily-builds
16:51:14_FireFly_there is libalac
16:51:15rashermaybe I'm just not using my eyes
16:51:36rasheroh yes indeed, I'm not
16:52:04_FireFly_it seems that only the bleeding-sources are "corrupted"
16:53:14rasherso the daily sources work, but bleeding doesn't?
16:53:15rasherthat's bizarre
16:54:33XavierGrto add some LANG names I must edit the english.lang?
16:54:41_FireFly_jupp because i using the daily-build 20050930 to add new "features" to my remote-patch
16:54:51_FireFly_XavierGr japp
16:55:22rasherindeed, libmad contains everything from a daily
16:55:23_FireFly_and after that you must use binlang (is in tools) to convert the *,lang to lng
16:55:25amiconnrasher: iirc, 'cvs export' just does that what you want
16:55:41XavierGrOk then enough for now, when I come back I will add the strings to english.lang and make that create new file preset menu.

18:03:22_FireFly_a similar menu as the .wps menu
18:03:52_FireFly_is in General-Settings->Display->Browse .rwps files
18:04:41muesli-aah, i c ;)
18:04:53muesli-sweet
18:05:12muesli-are conditional images possible?
18:05:42_FireFly_i have limited the size to 800 bytes i don't think that more will be necessary
18:06:10_FireFly_yes the size limit is the only thing that i have changed
18:06:55_FireFly_the rest is the same as for the normal wps
18:07:15muesli-800bytes are quit tight. you can easily reach that size in a wps
18:07:29_FireFly_my one doesn't ;)
18:07:59_FireFly_but it can be easly change if necessary
18:08:57muesli-ie. if you use 4images as a battery indicator and 4-5 for volume its almost over
18:10:20_FireFly_i have 13 images in my remote wps and it has only 606bytes
18:10:24solexxare there any pre-built versions available for download?

18:14:24solexxthats ok
18:14:37_FireFly_muesli: you can save a bit of space when you reduce the filename-length of the bitmaps

18:32:00amiconnmuesli-, _FireFly_: I just want to remind of my suggestion to allow bitmap-regions, and put many images used in the .wps into one .bmp files
18:32:01amiconn-s
18:32:37amiconnThis would both help to reduce file system clutter, and keep the .wps files smaller
18:33:29_FireFly_that is a good idea but i have currently no clue how to implement it
18:33:33muesli-err..could you describe it..just dont have any pic of your idea
18:33:51_FireFly_you have one bitmap file
18:34:06amiconnMany skinning systems for pc programs use that
18:34:35_FireFly_the bitmap file have all stages e.g. volume-bar
18:35:12_FireFly_the iriver firmware use it also
18:35:22 Quit webguest41 ("CGI:IRC (Ping timeout)")
18:36:06muesli-nope, afaik irivers fw uses for any event a specific bmp
18:36:18rasherNo.
18:36:34rasherIt uses a couple of combined bmps
18:36:59amiconnmuesli-: The idea is to put multiple, or even all, images used in the wps into one .bmp
18:37:24amiconnThe individual images can be put side by side, or benath each other, in the .bmp
18:37:54rasherin the case of a volume meter, you could even just use one image, and then use half of it
18:37:55amiconnThe wps code would then allow to clip a region from the whole .bmp for display
18:38:04muesli-and when you want a specific satge for i.e battery put some "spacers" about it?
18:38:44amiconnrasher: Yes, provided the higher stages are simply extending some kind of graph
18:39:17rasherYup
18:40:00amiconnSometimes one may want en extra image for volume==0, a muted speaker symbol or such
18:40:56amiconnrasher: The iriver firmware allows changing of images?
18:41:13rasherNo
18:41:21rasherBut internally it uses combined bmps
18:41:31_FireFly_someone has striped it off
18:41:35_FireFly_:)
18:41:39_FireFly_from the firmware
18:41:57amiconnah
18:43:03muesli-amiconn your idea sounds good..but doesnt kill it the freedom of different wps?
18:43:17amiconnWhy should it?
18:43:42muesli-mmh...yeah..nevermend
18:43:45muesli-mind
18:43:51amiconnFirst, we could keep the ability to load multiple .bmp files *in addition* to allow clip regions
18:44:26amiconnI'd rather not want that, but even the one could rearrange available images with an image editor
18:44:35amiconn*even then...
18:45:04muesli-how do want to place different codec icons at the same spot when using only one bmp?
18:45:16amiconnNot at the same spot
18:45:40amiconn(in the bmp)
18:45:49amiconnThat's of course impossible
18:46:12muesli-how do want to solve this?
18:46:35amiconnYou clip a region from the .bmp, and draw it at a specified location on the screen
18:46:50amiconnBoth positions are independent from each other
18:47:11_FireFly_here is an example bmp from the iriver firmware http://home.arcor.de/s.wezel/12.bmp
18:47:27amiconnHmm, that might in fact not save that much on the .wps file size...
18:47:57amiconn_FireFly_: That's.. stupid. Repeating 'CH' over and over...
18:48:33_FireFly_i haven't done this bmp ;)
18:48:48_FireFly_it is a bmp from the frimware stripped off
18:49:08amiconnI know... I mean, iriver is stupid.
18:49:12_FireFly_;)
18:49:24_FireFly_or it was easier to make it so

20:54:14Slasherionly headers are read on next boot from that cache file
20:54:40ep0chso everytime rockbox boots up now it does a scan? whereas before the user had the option?

20:58:10amiconnSlasheri: I'd vote for removing the option and the need for a cache file altogether
20:58:12*BirdFish wonders why people beg and beg for DRMed music... Napster and such services are such a waste of money. For maybe 2 dollars more, one could get the entire cd in pure format rather than 128 kb/s (and it wouldn't be protected)
20:58:47fuzzieBirdFish: right, but 99c for the only track off it you want is a rather better deal
20:58:49ep0chrasher: quick question about the File Properties patch you use, any idea how do i use it? :s
20:58:55amiconnSlasheri: You can store the needed cache size value in the config sector
20:59:01fuzzieand jhymn makes it a matter of seconds to strip the DRM off iTMS files. :)
20:59:16rasherep0ch: Use "open with" on a file.. but it's really stupid
20:59:26BirdFishfuzzie: I realize, but it's still encoded at 128 kb/s which sux b@lls
20:59:27ep0chduh like me :D
20:59:53Slasheriamiconn: that option is already removed (ifdeffed out)
21:00
21:00:14MoosHCl: are you aware, it's about your runtime db ?
21:00:14fuzzie128kbps AAC isn't that bad, but, yeah, if it's not just single tracks then the CD is obviously the best option by far
21:00:35Slasheriamiconn: hmm, yes. i think i will move that cache size value to the config then
21:00:40*amiconn is fiddling with the grayscale lib
21:01:16amiconnWish coldfire wouldn't split the registers into dedicated address & data registers :(
21:01:22ep0chi personnally would like a compromise with the cache and have a dynamic on the fly cache, that still starts the harddisk up even if something is cached or not.
21:01:48rasherep0ch: why would you spin up the harddisk if something is already cached?
21:02:13ep0chso when you navigate to something that isnt in the cache there is little delay (as the HD is already started)
21:02:17amiconnI'm short of data registers, so I have to store values in address registers and swap everytime, as address registers can't be used for logical operations and bitshifts :/
21:02:51Slasheriep0ch: everything is cached so there will be no delays (with my patch)
21:03:23ep0chSlasheri: yes i know, but i'd like the compromise of not wasting too much memory and getting a speed boost
21:03:23Moosall is instantatly, browsing your files, plugins, config...
21:03:58rasherYou can't really use any less memory
21:04:09ep0chwhy not?
21:04:11rasherIt wouldn't make sense to cache half the disk, when it's such relatively small amounts
21:04:12_FireFly_rasher the latest version can be found here http://home.arcor.de/s.wezel/lcd-remote-plus-additional-patches.zip
21:04:21rasher_FireFly_: thanks
21:04:43_FireFly_it has also the updated wps-sb-tag patch included in the zip
21:04:46Slasherithat wasting memory is something around 200-500 KiB depending how much you have files.. under 2% of the iriver memory size
21:04:46ep0chjust have a cache size limit, last one used gets kicked out
21:05:06_FireFly_and some other so that they all can be cleanly applied after the remote patch
21:05:14*amiconn had an idea how to fix the problem that the file browser doesn't update the list when returning from a plugin
21:05:27_FireFly_the order are given in the filename beginning
21:05:30rasheramiconn: the plugins hould just return PLUGIN_USB_CONNECTED
21:05:41rasherAt least, that's what Linus said, and it works
21:05:54amiconnrasher: No, that would make the browser re-read the dir *everytime* when returning
21:06:04amiconn(from such a plugin)
21:06:17amiconnMy idea would only make it re-read when necessary
21:06:32amiconn...without touching any plugin source file :)
21:06:58rasherah, taking notice on when the plugin struct file-functions are used?
21:07:07_FireFly_i have added some options for the remote: seperate scrollbar, statusbar, line selector
21:07:19amiconnThis would be a general approach:
21:07:33rasherdammit, rejects
21:07:42_FireFly_oh
21:07:48_FireFly_which patch ??
21:08:00rasherThe first. I'm not applying to a clean tree
21:08:02amiconnThe file system code would maintain a "revision counter" that is increased every time a file operation changes the directory structure
21:08:05_FireFly_;)
21:08:13amiconn(creating/renaming/moving a file)
21:08:20_FireFly_it based on 20050930
21:08:46amiconnEvery module that caches directory data (like the file browser) would read that counter and compare it to a private copy
21:09:17amiconnIf the browser sees the counter has incremented compared to its own copy, it would re-read the dir
21:09:53amiconnThis counter would also be incremented when leaving USB mode
21:10:28ep0cheven if no files change during USB mode?
21:10:39rasherthere's no way to tell
21:10:41amiconnep0ch: It's impossible to decide
21:10:49ep0chthat;'s what i thought :)
21:11:03amiconnNo need to excessively pass around info about returning from usb mode, as it is done now
21:11:33amiconnThe return codes of the menu functions, plugins etc could be reused for different purposes, or dropped completely
21:14:04***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
21:14:55_FireFly_rasher: whenn you applay both wps-sb-tag patches now it is possible to have the tags also in the wps for the remote
21:14:59_FireFly_apply
21:15:05amiconnCurrently there are many places where such status info is passed around, not only in menus but also in recording screen etc
21:17:19ep0chanyone know which file/files the quick menu code is in?
21:17:20rasher_FireFly_: well, I think I broke my tree pretty much
21:17:45_FireFly_hmm maybe i have forgotten a patch
21:18:48_FireFly_no all patches are included
21:20:07rasherwell, I've applied other patches before applying yours
21:20:54_FireFly_i have used the plain daily-build :)
21:21:14rasherof course

23:36:33webguest19hi guys
23:37:17webguest19hello, is there anybody in there? ;-)
23:42:09markunsure
23:43:59webguest19hi
23:44:16webguest19midi doesn't really work on the iriver, does it?
23:44:28markunNo, not yet.
23:45:32webguest19alright, just wanted to know if im too stupid or if it really doesn't work...
23:45:39markun:)
23:46:22markunThe plugin produces the audio data, but it is not playing it. Someone is working on it.
23:47:42webguest19it seems like it freezes somewhere..
23:47:59webguest19at least i have now a remote that displays something useful
