01:26:28andyLinusN: think i have located one nasty bug in recording.. backlight fading (which uses cpu_boost) seams to cause dma transfer to fail.. so one workaround is to run recording with boost..
01:27:13LinusNor disable that silly fading
01:27:42Soul-Eso any idea on whether the new us firmware will be patchable
01:28:44LinusNi suspect it will be tough
01:30:18LinusNif they care about drm, they have probably added an extra checksum to prevent tampering
01:35:11andyLinusN: yes, cpu_boost(false) while dma is in progress causes it to fail
01:37:01andygoing to check in my changes (adds peakmeter and a few bug fixes)

01:59:44JdGordonhmm.... whats the easiest way to debug it? the sim isnt very helpful...
02:00:19LinusNeither fix the sim, or run it on the target
02:00:49JdGordonno, i mean it works prob as it should on the sim.. but its not easy to debug..
02:01:07LinusNi on't get it
02:01:12JdGordonok dw
02:01:29LinusNyou can use a debugger in the sim
02:02:14JdGordonhow? or u mean the debug widonw and DEBUGF?
02:02:48Soul-Ecan you run regular firmware in the sim or just rbx
02:02:59XavierGrLinus: Did you hear the news with the new H100 firmware LOL. They say that they fixed the recording glitch.
02:03:08LinusNsaw that
02:03:30LinusNSoul-E: the sim is just rockbox, modified to run on the pc
02:03:41XavierGrThis is hilarious. Some freelancer programers that had no documentation made gltchless recording before the official company haha.
02:04:09XavierGr(no documentation = got the documentation after a search)
02:10:29LinusNandy: static volatile bool?
02:13:02andyLinusN: yeah, so the compiler doesn't optimize the variable to a register.. might be unnecessary?
02:15:05XavierGrLinus: Do you think that upon saving a fmr preset list that settings should be updated with the saved file. (That is also strange behavioud in cfg file)
02:15:07 Join whatboutbob [0] (
02:15:57LinusNsince the variable is global, the compiler shouldn't optimize it anyway, since we call a function in the loop, which may very well change the variable
02:16:57LinusNXavierGr: "should be updated"? You mean it should use the newly saved file?
02:17:21XavierGrUse it in the next load of the radio screen, yes.
02:17:30whatboutbob<conspiracy conjecture> glitchless recording on iriver has been released suspiciously close to Rockbox getting the job done (thanks Andy). Anyone think the iriver developers have been having a peek at rockbox code?</conspiracy conjecture> :)
02:18:07LinusNi'm sure they know about rockbox
02:18:17andyLinusN: true.. i added volatile in a desperate hunt for a bug =)
02:18:21JdGordondoes the rb firwmare have to be named rockbox.iriver to load? (i mean to load another fw after boot)
02:18:32 Join Noel_sad_song [0] (
02:18:50LinusNJdGordon: the bootloader only looks for rockbox.iriver
02:19:08LinusNbut you can manually load any file that ends with .iriver
02:19:13andywhatboutbob: hehe.. but how come they only can buffer for 30 seconds when recording WAV and rockbox can buffer for almost 3 minutes ? :)
02:19:25JdGordonok, thanx
02:20:56XavierGrLinus: E.g. The user starts radio. Then he creates a new fmr and then saves it. Currently (as in cfg file) if the user exits and the start the radio again the previous file wil load instead of the saved one. (If the user wants to load the saved one, he must load it manually from the radio menu.) Do you think that settings must be updated with that new file on save?
02:21:55LinusNXavierGr: cfg files are never remembered
02:22:36LinusNnever ever
02:22:43whatboutbobandy: hehe...yeah...i don't think i'm gonna be getting 15 hours recording time from 1 battery charge with the iriver fw any time soon. :)
02:23:06XavierGrerm then I remember wrong. Anyway do you want to remember then new file upon save?
02:23:39JdGordonhmm.. the sim runs faster than the actual player doesnt it?
02:23:56LinusNXavierGr: no i don't think so
02:24:22LinusNJdGordon: yes, the cpu is often a lot faster
02:24:40JdGordonhmm ok, this bmp loading may not be feasible then
02:24:42LinusNbut the tick should be roughly the same
02:24:46andywhatboutbob: 15 hours? what kind of battery do you have? 2200 mA?
02:32:12whatboutbobandy: yup. 2200mAh. 2gb split has worked fine for me a bunch of times btw.

05:40:21HooliganHmm...This is interesting
05:40:40HooliganI sent in my H320 for repair two weeks ago
05:41:31HooliganI just got it back, and when I looked on the HDD, there is a file titled H300_Drmkey.hex 2,902,553 b
05:42:04HooliganAnd I don't think I'm making a wild guess in thinking that this could be a clue as to how DRM-protected music playback works
05:42:48HooliganAny thoughts as to what I should do with this?
05:43:17HooliganI have a second H320, with Korean firmware. I could try flashing it with these two to see if it restores DRM playback just to confirm
05:43:20XavierGrkeep it safe until a dev or someone that knows these stuff learns about it.
05:43:37HooliganYes, yes. I'll keep several copies of both files of course.

05:45:00ashridahi'm not sure the devs will be interested, they prefer official releases.
05:45:00HooliganSlightly larger than the firmware
05:45:13Hooliganashridah: That's what I was thinking
05:45:18ashridahHooligan: are you sure it's not the unofficial 1.03 firmware?
05:45:30XavierGrhmm the peak meter doesn't work right with line in recording.
05:45:43HooliganWell, as I said these two files were on it when I got it back
05:45:43XavierGrit will either clip or show nothing.
05:45:59HooliganI'm gonna try flashing them both to an H320 with 1.28k to make sure it works
05:46:20HooliganBut if the U.S. firmware doesn't detect a DRM key it will give a warning to that effect, right?
05:46:46XavierGrhaha imagine if it is a very top scret file that will enable decoding of drm music. (very doubtable thoug)
05:47:10HooliganDoubtful. But the thought is immensely entertaining
05:47:40HooliganSo it'll give me a warning if there's no DRM key right?

05:48:41HooliganSo yeah, let me try flashing without H300_Drmkey.hex, and then with it.
05:49:17HooliganI think my chances of bricking it are fairly low at least
05:49:29XavierGrare you sure it is safe to flash this?
05:49:54XavierGris is the same size with a normal firmware file? (up or down)
05:50:55HooliganThe firmware is 2,897,936 b and the H300_Drmkey.hex is 2,902,553
05:51:34HooliganBut since both files were on there, I think it's possible that when you flash with H300.hex, it will search for H300_drmkey.hex

05:56:58ehntooor not. just the sdk is opened.
05:57:00XavierGrwhen music is somewhat loud it will show full bar if not it will show nothing
05:57:42ashridahehntoo: it might be open but still unusuable for us, due to licensing, of course.
05:57:54toolmanwillmines working right now
05:57:55ashridahit has to be GPL compatible at least, if not completely GPL'ed.
05:58:06toolmanwilldid your use bleeding build?
05:58:31XavierGralso I can't get the peak meter work on idle mode (while not recording)
05:58:33Kyl3cygwin wont do anything because it cant find m86k-elf-gcc lol
05:58:42toolmanwillit doesnt
05:58:57ehntooI'll let you figure it out by yourself.
05:58:57toolmanwillonly works while recording
05:59:04ehntooit's late and I don't have any coffee.
05:59:14DarkShadow_Oh noes!
05:59:21XavierGrThought about that, but why only recording?
05:59:44toolmanwillprolly needs more code to call it while in idle
05:59:46Kyl3is there a way i can get m86k-elf-gcc for cygwin?
06:00:06toolmanwillfrom what i seen in changes its when recording is true
06:00:18JdGordongrr... i hate this fucking code
06:00:32XavierGrtoolmanwill: your gain settings are both to 0dB right?
06:00:38HooliganOkay, now I'm gonna flash with just H300_Drmkey.hex. Let's see if it works...
06:00:40JdGordonstupid fucking "undefined reference to blaa..." LOOK IN THE .H FILE U STUPID COMPILER!!!
06:00:43*Hooligan crosses his fingers
06:00:55toolmanwilli'm at 12 db gain
06:01:06XavierGrJdGordon what are you doing?
06:01:24JdGordontrying to compile the damn firmware with some secret changes :D
06:01:34XavierGrtoolmanwill: mine 0dB something is wrong with mine then
06:01:41Kyl3Hooligan: dont forget to rename it to H300.hex
06:01:46XavierGrplugin or something else?
06:01:49HooliganYeah, haha
06:01:55HooliganI wonder if this will brick my player.
06:02:11XavierGrwell cross your fingers then
06:02:16HooliganOh, I am.
06:02:35JdGordonheheh.. had the funciton under a #if defined block which wasnt being done :p
06:02:40*JdGordon shuts up
06:03:03Kyl3how do you rockbox guys compile using cygwin withoutm86k-elf-gcc?
06:03:22XavierGryou can't (i think)
06:03:42Kyl3i know ;P where can i get it?
06:03:45ashridahXavierGr: the simulator should compile with GCC.
06:03:48ehntooKyl3: tried this?
06:03:50XavierGrget the devkit if you are on windows, or downlaod the elf from the cygwin links.
06:04:02HooliganAlso, H300_Drmkey.hex looks almost identical to H300.hex in a hex editor, so I'm reassured a bit.
06:04:15XavierGryes the simulator can compile without the mk68
06:04:18Kyl3thanks guys
06:04:24HooliganOkay, here goes nothing.
06:04:36XavierGrHooligan: Then procceed haha , don't blame me though
06:04:44HooliganI won't.
06:04:53Kyl3whatre doing anyway?
06:05:01XavierGrWell, here goes your H300 if something is wrong....
06:05:15HooliganWell, it's booting

06:05:40HooliganCan't Found DRM KEY
06:06:06XavierGrI mean shit
06:06:16XavierGrhow that stuff works anyway?
06:06:21HooliganThe name must mean something though
06:06:23XavierGrI mean you have a drm song
06:06:29XavierGrdo you put a license file there?
06:06:55XavierGrand then checks the drm in the firmware and plays else it will not?
06:07:33HooliganWell, the key must be used to decrypt the song.
06:07:36HooliganI think
06:08:22XavierGrtoolmanwill: It was my settings that did the job.
06:08:38XavierGrNow the peak meter works fine.
06:08:45ashridahthe key on the player is used to reencrypt the song on upload, isn't it?
06:08:53ashridahso it can't be copied back off the device.
06:09:19HooliganMakes sense.
06:09:27toolmanwillkool, beans
06:09:55toolmanwillthat peakmeter now will stop me totally from using iriver FW
06:10:00XavierGrif you have a drm file do you need to put on the player another one (except the audio file)
06:10:31XavierGrtoolmanwill: Why did the iriver fw had peakmeter in the first place?
06:11:59HooliganNow, I wonder if there would be any legal implications of me uploading this file
06:12:17HooliganNot like I got it in any shady way, it was on my player when I got it back.
06:12:19XavierGrupload it at least in your mail box.

06:18:13 Quit pengo ("Leaving")
06:18:52HooliganThough it seems the two files are almost identical when looked at in a hex editor.
06:18:59XavierGrwhy not flash with the drm hex without renamed maybe it will accpet it.
06:19:13HooliganTried, didn't accept it.
06:19:44HooliganMaybe if I flash with H300.hex, then try flashing with H300_Drmkey.hex without renaming it. Maybe...Just maybe
06:20:17XavierGrmaybe if we email iriver they will tell us ROFLMAO
06:20:38HooliganThat would be golden
06:21:04HooliganMaybe I should call them tomorrow morning. See what they say!
06:21:18XavierGrmaybe the put that on purpose to laugh at us...

06:22:47HooliganI sent mine back two weeks ago, got it back yesterday.
06:22:58drumRBoy320hooligan, funny to see you here, i just gave instructions to try and go here if you needed someone to test
06:23:02HooliganThis afternoon, I get home and there's another package from iRiver
06:23:18HooligandrumRboy: I'm a geek too!
06:23:34HooliganSo I open up the second package today, and it
06:23:38Hooligan's another H320!
06:23:49HooliganIncidentally, it was the one with H300_Drmkey.hex
06:23:54XavierGrHooligan they send it to you 2 H300s
06:23:57drumRBoy320did you tell them they sent to?
06:24:07Soul-Eon accident?
06:24:09HooliganYes, they did.
06:24:10Soul-Ethat is freaking awesome
06:24:13XavierGrare you kidding OMFG!!!!!
06:24:18Soul-Ewhy did you flash both with intl firmware then
06:24:23HooliganI didn't
06:24:32XavierGrI repeat OMFG!!!!!
06:24:33HooliganThe one that I got today is still 1.03 US
06:24:36drumRBoy320thats like that guy who sent in an h120 and got an h340 and an h120 back

10:09:08linuxstbIs the apps/win32.mak file obsolete?
10:09:24linuxstbAnd the one in tools/
10:09:51linuxstbShould someone "cvs remove" them?
10:15:59*linuxstb wonders why Ogg is such an unhelpful container format.
10:16:29linuxstbYou basically need to scan the whole file in order to get all the information needed for playback.
10:17:04linuxstbAnd there is no seektable.
10:19:47markunMaybe matroshka is bettter
10:20:10linuxstbTell all the vorbis fans that :)
10:20:41markunI'm a vorbis fan :)
10:20:59linuxstbI've started to write a simple (malloc free) Ogg parser that Tremor (and FLAC and Speex when it comes) can use.
10:22:12linuxstbDo you use chained Ogg files? Do you know any applications that support them?
10:22:12markunVery usefull. I guess we'll only play the first stream in the Ogg container
10:22:56markunIt's useful for internet radio, but that's the only application I can think of
10:23:28markunIt's should be possible to split them again, so if someone complains we can tell them to do that.
10:23:35linuxstbIs it designed to be used to store an entire album in a single file?
10:25:14markunThat's also possible
10:25:44markunI suggest you forget about it for now :)
10:25:58linuxstbI have to say that .m4a is a perfect container for portable playback. All the required information (including an index of every compressed frame in the file with its compressed and uncompressed size) is in the header.
10:29:02markunDid you start the code for the wolfson dac yet?

10:36:41 Join MrShlee [0] (
10:36:55linuxstbThe header contains a CRC for syncing purpose.
10:37:12preglowwow, gotta admit ogg fell in esteem
10:38:13MrShleeDoes the patcher work for 1.29?
10:38:16linuxstbYes, it's not nice. I thought there would be some advantage to using Ogg instead of native FLAC, but there isn't.
10:47:13linuxstbAnyway, I'm planning to implement Ogg FLAC using my own parser. When I add seeking support to it, I'll then see if it's worth replacing Tremor's parser with my own. At the very least it will remove a ton of mallocs from Tremor.
10:47:31preglowany reason why you're not using libogg2?
10:47:40preglowit's supposed to be malloc free
10:47:43linuxstbIt's full of mallocs.

11:28:31Paul_The_NerdAs I said I'll update to 1.66 when I need to flash a newer version of the bootloader for whatever reason.
11:28:37lchafter leaving my iRiver H140 on a plane, and buying an Archos FM Recorder that no longer works, I am once again without an MP3 player.
11:28:47lamed<sentimental> this is a good reason to thanks again bagder, linusn, zagor, and all people that have joined together under this great project.
11:28:53lchSo I gotta get a new one.
11:29:00lamedlch ouch.
11:29:07lchI want an MP3 player *specifically* for using Rockbox.
11:29:13lchWhat would you suggest I get?
11:29:41ashridahH140's work well. H3xx's are on the way to working well.
11:29:46Paul_The_NerdIt depends. How much do you care about optical in/out?
11:29:52lamedi would grab an h300, just because of the usb2go&usbhost.
11:30:01ashridahH1xx's are harder to get tho, since they've been discontinued for a while
11:30:29lchI got my H140 used on eBay, and it came with two complete sets of extras (two power supplies, two LCD remotes, etc etc).
11:31:05lchI don't think I care about optical in/out. I want it for playing MP3s and OGGs, and don't plan on doing much recording.
11:31:20lamedthat's nice. i've had a bad fw upgrade at the very first week of purchasing... i send the player and got a new bundle. so i've got everything twice too.

12:33:04Paul_The_NerdIch: Speaking about rockbox in general, it's not as user friendly as some firmwares try to be. You have to get used to the idea that you're *always* using playlists to play your music. Even if there's not a file, there's one in memory.
12:33:05lchmy old Archos FM Recorder *works*, except... when you turn it on, it always thinks it's hooked up to a USB host, and goes into USB slave mode.

12:34:45lchAnyway, someone on #rockbox here told me that the problem (iirc) was "weak / cracked solder joints".
12:35:08lchI have opened the thing up, and... now what? I don't see anything cracked-looking.
12:35:21lchI'm no soldering whiz.
12:35:26 Quit Zak1392 ()
12:35:32Paul_The_Nerdlch: In that case, it's not too bad. You *might* want to wait for bootloader v3, as I hear there's a *few* rough edges around that. I haven't heard about a confirmed brick, but a few people have had to revert to stock firmware. Other than that, most of the rough edges seem to relate to the fact that it's only running at 90mhz instead of 120, so can't decode as fast as they'd like it to.
12:36:21lchPaul_The_Nerd: where did they get used to 120MHz? the H1x0 series?
12:36:58ashridahthere are a few codecs that hit realtime and were then left as is.
12:37:24Paul_The_Nerdlch: The H1x0 and H3x0 both use the same processor, which I understand clocks up to 140, though they picked 124 if I recall as their "boost" speed, and 45 I think as their normal speed. But the H3x0 isn't stable while boosting if I understand correctly, so they had to cap it a bit lower.
12:37:39linuxstbashridah: "a few" ? I thought only vorbis had problems on the h3x0.
12:37:46ashridahPaul_The_Nerd: the cpu can do 140, but heat tolerances stop it going higher
12:37:58ashridahlinuxstb: i was being diplomatic :)
12:38:10Paul_The_NerdHas anyone tested MPC on H3x0 yet?
12:38:29ashridahPaul_The_Nerd: (higher than 120 i mean)
12:39:12Paul_The_Nerdashridah: Yeah, I'd known it was due to heat reasons. And hey, that's fine with me. Having my MP3 player not start melting bits of itself and or otherwise failing is always a *plus* in firmware in my book.
12:39:53MrShleemy collection is with ogg and I havn't had any problem yet? unless I didn't notice/care
12:39:56MrShleewhat problems?
12:40:08lchConsidering that RockBox is supposed to be an improvement in all areas, it'd be a pity to add a "Causes your MP3 player to melt" row to the feature comparison matrix and have to put a big red mark in just RockBox's column.
12:40:10ashridahMrShlee: depends on the bitrate
12:40:14Jungti1234What does *xxx* mean?

12:40:47ashridah1ch: it's a limitation of the hardware, but hardly a major hurdle.
12:40:54MrShleebest not be broken :)
12:40:55lchJungti1234: That means you should pretend the characters are in a *bold* font. Some people also use slashes to mean /italics/.
12:41:11ashridahjust means you have less cpu to run with. you don't want it running at max cpu speed 24x7 anyway, since that's a waste of battery
12:41:14Jungti1234I don't work it.
12:41:54MrShleeI don't see why ogg should take more cycles but im guessing mp3 would be pretty tweaked after 11 years or sometihng.
12:42:14ashridahMrShlee: vorbis is a much more complicated codecthan mp3
12:42:21MrShleethus my love for it :)
12:42:27ashridahand as i say, they got it realtime, then stopped.
12:42:28Paul_The_NerdI dunno lch. If you phrased it correctly. "MP3 player can be heated to the point that it is filled with burning liquid metal and then thrown to debilitate and or slay a foe" it almost sounds like a real feature. ;-)
12:42:34ashridahi forget who was working on it at the time.
12:43:15MrShleeIm sure I remember a lower tick decoder for vorbis.
12:43:30lchMrShlee: one nice thing (of many nice things) of an all-FLAC archive is that you can re-encode whenever you like without any signal degredation. so I can recode one way for portable players, and another for a hard disk I'd take to work.
12:43:31ashridahinteger based?
12:44:06MrShleehas a weird name.. but I think it stole a wee bit of allocated memory :|

12:48:12MrShleeTremor = videocodec isn't it :S
12:48:30Paul_The_NerdTremore is a vorbis encoder
12:48:35lchwell, the one at the branch I just linked to says 1.0.0. which might be telling in its own right.
12:48:59lchTremor is an integer playback decoder for Ogg Vorbis.
12:49:42Paul_The_NerdArgh. I seem to have lost that essential connection between thought and fingers.

12:51:45ashridahgiven that there's no malloc available in rockbox, i wouldn't have assumed that's a problem

13:05:04Paul_The_Nerd"A qubyte with eight ions provides a computing matrix of 65536 mostly independent elements." There's something about the phrase "mostly independent elements" that worries me for some reason.

13:06:09Paul_The_NerdI keep reading about quantum computing, and I keep thinking about how 'quantum' things often seem to also be 'uncertain' things and I start thinking "Wouldn't it be odd if you never knew something had been compiled until you looked, and then when you did it decided not to be?"
13:06:53ashridahquantum computing doesn't quite work that way. the actual method programming a quantum computer is a feat of ingenuity in and of itself.

13:08:26Paul_The_NerdAh well, there's some clever people in cryptography. Once it's no longer needed, they can apply that cleverness somewhere else.
13:08:38merbananashridah: well they have quantum encryption, hard to crack
13:09:28ashridahmerbanan: that relies on a foolproof method of generating a one time pad tho (which is the only encryption that can't be broken by quantum computers)
13:09:48Bagdercannard: indeed!
13:09:59Paul_The_NerdYeah, a one time pad has been the best way you can encrypt something for quite a long time.
13:10:06ashridahmerbanan: that said, there is a way to do that, using a suitably qualitative optic fibre and a phone line, and a bunch of polarised photons and filters

15:24:30Lamedwhen we're talking about volume increasing and decreasing, in those systems that uses - to zero values, we're talking attenuation, and that's how much you decrease from the full scale, which would be using zero. you thoreticly pass the zero to a positive number, but then when the (real?) decibel pressure of the track goes high (near full) you'll get clipping. right?
15:25:04DocBrownLinusN: Hi! I have been very busy last 2 days, could not experiment with the bootloader. But I saw from the logs that you found a workaround?
15:25:09Lamed you thoreticly pass the zero = theoraticly _can_ pass

15:27:19LinusNDocBrown: yes, somehow
15:27:34preglowLamed: because it's a nice way to represent gains and attenuations. it compacts a very large number space into a small one

16:16:05lostlogicxRockbox build query: I have a set of profiling functions designed to be called using gcc's -finstrument-functions switch, these functions reside in firmware/profile.c with header in firmware/export/profile.h How can I make codecs link against them properly? Or do I have to biuld a separate profile library that both librockbox and lib<Codec> link against? (thread.c and timer.c also need to call back to profiling functions)
16:17:44 Quit MrShlee (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
16:17:45linuxstbYou should probably export the functions via the codec API.
16:18:03linuxstbOr move your profile functions into the codec library.
16:19:28lostlogicxlinuxstb: want to be able to proflie system things too eventually maybe. I'll export them in the codec API and the plugin API... now on with the rehacking the build system to support all of this, and configuring profiling per-plugin / per-codec. Thanks.
16:20:48lostlogicxOh, another thought: Want to rehack timer.c to support timers that DO or DO NOT rescale when the CPU clock changes, good idea or bad idea?

17:14:17FebsPaul_The_Nerd: that is the nature of a trademark. If a word or phrase or marking has gained secondary meaning (i.e., the public associates it with a particular brand, product or company) then that company can claim trademark protection.
17:14:42*Febs notes that his knowledge is limited to the U.S.
17:15:09FebsIBM comes to mind as an example.
17:15:35FebsMS-DOS as another.
17:15:49Paul_The_NerdFebs: But you still have to prove that there's potential for confusion when trying to assert trademark infringement
17:16:01Paul_The_NerdThe iRiver players are pretty clearly marked as non HP branded
17:16:57FebsBut you're iriver, you need to weigh the cost of defending an infringement claim and the risk of losing against the cost of rebranding the product.

17:17:14Paul_The_NerdTrue, it was cheaper for them.
17:17:30Paul_The_NerdIt just seem ridiculous that there was even any risk to them at all.

17:33:33Paul_The_Nerdmirak: Right now, pressing a button always goes through. The toggling hold on and then off again should turn on the backlight without doing anything.
17:33:40linuxstbThe idea is to make your plugin adjust itself to different types of targets - e.g. using LCD_WIDTH and LCD_HEIGHT to adjust the display to different LCDs

19:31:11Sanbrb, gotta find a CD
19:31:31elishereri don't have bitmap
19:32:06Amarim sure you can make one quickly
19:33:49Sanmake a quick one in paint
19:35:29 Quit linuxstb ("Client Exiting")
19:36:00elishererwell it works fine but it doesn't support big pictures it takes to long to load them
19:36:59Santo is supports 8Bit and 32Bit, or just 8Bit?
19:37:42elishereri think ill make a limit to the resolution of pictures it can open.. like 1024*768 (it's i think the biggest i can go)
19:38:01elisherermaybe ill add a progress bar so it wont be so boring to wait for the picture to come up...hehe
19:38:10elishererjust 24 bit
19:39:21elisherer32bit is 4 chars(r,g,b,reserved),24 bit is 3 chars(r,g,b),8 bit is 2 chars 00-FF from palette and 4 bit is 0-F from palette...
19:39:39Sanoh, ok
19:39:55Sansi RB san only support 3 characters?
19:39:59elisherer2 bit is black and white but you can color it in any color you want
19:40:27*preglow vanishes
19:40:35elisherertechnically it's less cause the color lcd can support up to 262,000 colors and 24 bit is 16 million colors
19:41:01elishererso we use 16bit which is 65,000 colors
19:41:07Sanah ok
19:41:22Sanwould it be hard to port this to a jpeg viewer aswell?
19:41:26elishereri do a conversion from 24 bit to 16 bit in my loading
19:41:34*Philip wishes that his H340 could show album art
19:42:00elishererno not at all and this is where im aiming...even gif but the thing is that gif is patented and rockbox probably wont allow it
19:42:31Sanis there eventually going to be a zoon feature?

20:11:16Sanwhat is your website again?
20:11:29elishererthere's a bug with big pictures... (
20:11:47elishererbecause it draws them from the buttom up...
20:11:48SanI am going to make a page for all your plugins on my site
20:12:09elishererit's not neccesary cause i update them all the time...
20:12:31Harmageddonwtf cool :)
20:13:50elisherermy thread in misticriver almost has the same viewcount as "Have you successfully rockboxed your player?"
20:16:22Lamedslasheri: that sounds awfully odd... but i wish you good luck. imho what really missing about creating filenames are the everyday commands like copy/cut/paste. some of this days i hope to write something that will let you browse the tree to place the file that you are making easily. today it's very hard to put the exact path letter by letter just to move a file.
20:17:16elisherernow with bmp capabilities i can make the rockword that i worked so hard on...
20:17:47Sanhow do I open a BMP file?
20:18:03SlasheriLamed: true.. moving should be done probably with gui and rename differently. And search function for files should be added
20:20:29PhilipSan: if you have changed the viewers.config file then you should just be able to select the files in the same way as music files
20:20:37Sanoooh, wait
20:20:42Sani have 000 instead of 00
20:20:45Philipjust make sure you have show all
20:21:27elishererSan: what?
20:22:02Sanat the end of the line I had to paste in, I had 000 instead of 00
20:22:12elishererSan: oh
20:22:32Sanwhen I open a bmp it jst opens rockpaint
20:22:44elishererphilip: if you have bmp in the viewers.config then "supported" mode will also show BMPs
20:22:46Philipwhere should the splash screen go?? what part of player? i keep getting err: cannot find file
20:23:04Lamedslasheri: yeah... it's common to say that this part of rockbox is pretty neglected. - p.s no hebrew support on filenames. if i edit an hebrew filename it changes all the charcter (probably ) to the wrong encoding.
20:23:23elishereryou need to have the "splash.bmp" inside a directory called "rockpaint" in "rocks"
20:23:55NicoFRI can't open bmp files other than the splach screen....
20:24:06NicoFRI did save them as 24 bit

20:33:01elishererwait i'll look into it now...
20:33:02Philipor me :(
20:33:05NicoFRI just see the blue background then back to the file explorer
20:33:21Sani just get rockpaint loded uo
20:33:26San*loaded up
20:33:45elishererwell NicoFR has the proper outcome...
20:34:01elishererit needs to be the blue background and on it comes the bmp
20:34:24elishererNicoFR: when you start rockpaint from the "browse plugins" does it work well?
20:34:51elishererSan: you don't have the right rockpaint version installed you need v0.42
20:35:33Sanyes, I dont think i had that
20:35:39*San tryes again
20:35:48elishererand about the "viewers.config" file i recommand you download it from the site instead of editing it yourselves.
20:36:00NicoFRone other thing I'm noticing right now is that the cursor is flashing when I move it... IIRC it didn't do that in previous versions
20:36:19elishererwhich cursor?
20:36:39NicoFRthe one in rockpaint
20:36:41NicoFRthe cross
20:36:51elishererthat's because it's more faster that way...but i look into that too..:)
20:37:33Sanaah, that extra line goes at the top?
20:37:40Sani added it at the bottem
20:38:30NicoFRmaybe you could make the cursor jump pixels 2 by 2 or 4 by 4 or more when you press the direction buttons a long time... that would make it faster
20:39:32elishereryoure right about the cursor i fixed it now...i used double buffering...
20:40:18elishererand about the jumping it already implemented in the menu (see "brush jump")
20:40:25XavierGrHi all!
20:40:28NicoFRoh sorry
20:40:44XavierGrOh TiMiD is here again? Where you were lost man?
20:42:12Sangot it
20:42:31Sanbut, i think there is a bug, the picture loads, and as soon as it gets to the top, it goes back
20:42:52NicoFRtry pressing NAVI instead of "right"
20:43:12Sanand then after a while you get "cant open rockpaint.rock"
20:43:19Sanand then I cant open any files
20:43:21NicoFRI did get that too
20:43:26San*not files, rocks
20:44:02NicoFRSan: did you manage to open other BMPs ?
20:44:09elishererwow didn't get to that...
20:44:30Sanno, only bmp's that are in wps's

The profiling code I'm working on needs callbacks from both the system and from whatever's being profiled (a plugin or a codec or whatever) I can't see a good way to include the profiling functoins are part of the APIs because they are called by symbol name by the compiler so I can't use preprocessor directives to change how they are called afaics.

22:48:19baobab68got a question re: battery life on h320 on rockbox. for those way more familiar with rockbox's internals, which is likely to be chewing battery more: the lcd remaining on when the backlight is off, or the unoptimised nature of the ogg decoder at the moment?
22:51:43PaulJim not very familiar with rockbox internals, but i believe the lcd itself (without backlight) doesn't use much battery

22:52:28ashridahbaobab68: they're both in need of work.
22:52:37muesli-PaulJ how was zhg-mensa today? :D
22:52:56ashridahbaobab68: there's been work on the vorbis front, although it's early stages yet.
22:53:08baobab68ashridah: is the code for turning the lcd off likely to have to go in the bootloader or in the runtime part of rockbox?
22:53:14ashridahbaobab68: runtime.
22:53:23PaulJmuesli-: i usually dont go to the mensa
22:53:56ashridahbaobab68: that said, the driver will be shared between the two, the bootloader is largely constructed out of a base library that's part of rockbox itself.
22:53:57muesli-that zhg one wasnt a rock when i recall myself right
22:54:12ashridahso the disk driver, filesystem driver, lcd driver, button driver are all shared.
22:54:25baobab68ashridah: i was thinking of having a look at that. there's no *way* I could work on vorbis, I don't know C....i was thinking that "it can't be that hard to turn the lcd off..."
22:55:07baobab68i just have the impression that the lcd is 'active matrix' and something vaguely tells me they suck battery
22:55:21ashridahbaobab68: it takes a bit of bit twiddling on the i2c bus, iirc.
22:55:50ashridahyou'll need to do some datasheet reading, and i don't know how potentially fatal it can be (since i don't know if it's possible to command the lcd to go into a death spiral
22:55:50baobab68hmmmm.... same as activating the audio did?
22:56:25ashridahalmost all peripherals inside iriver's hardware are connected by the i2c serial bus, so you'd need a reasonable idea of what commands to send the LCD. the datasheet should cover that
22:56:51 Join Bger [0] (n=Bager@
22:57:11ashridahbut that said, as long as it's not fatal (which is unlikely, really), you can't brick the unit since you won't need to poke at the bootloader.
22:57:19ashridah(well, brick it easily)
22:57:57baobab68wonder if linus hasn't worked out yet, or hasn't noticed that the lcd is left running, or knows that it doesn't really matter. what i mean is, if he can't work it out then i have no chance
22:58:04ashridahhe knows
22:58:34baobab68the datasheet is in the wiki, right?
22:58:50ashridahbut family+contractwork+rockbox is difficult to juggle. turning off the LCD isn't an issue that prevents rockbox working.
22:58:58ashridahit'll get done tho
22:59:03ashridahin some form
22:59:10ashridahit should be in the wiki
22:59:30cannardfor better battery life, just sever the connection to the lcd itself. use the remote only, instant iaudio m3!!
22:59:43baobab68i understand that - what i meant is, it must be hard to do, or he would have already done it.
22:59:54baobab68cannard: :-)
23:00:16baobab68cannard: tell that to my partner. "you did *what* to save battery?"
23:00:23Bagderbaobab68: lots of things not yet done aren't "hard"
23:00:27ashridahbaobab68: not really, it's the trivial things that often get left to later. more pressing is why the unit wiggs out when he jacks up the frequency :)
23:00:33Bagderthey're just things not prioritized
23:01:02*ashridah nods
23:01:20baobab68won't a frequency hike suck battery even more?
23:01:27ashridahthe LCD driver in general needs more work than just turning off the lcd when the backlight's off.
23:01:43baobab68can't everyone just convert their vorbis to Q0.7 like me? :-)
23:01:44ashridahbaobab68: true, but the frequency hike only happens when necessary
23:01:50baobab68it plays fine
23:02:02ashridahrockbox boosts the cpu to higher rates when low watermarks are hit
23:02:22Paul_The_Nerd'sides, with the frequency hike it'd be running at a higher speed for less time
23:02:35ashridahso it often boosts for some codecs when filling the pcm buffer) and it boosts when the hard drive spins up to fill the data buffer.

23:04:35ashridahbaobab68: but yeah, the ogg codec needs work.
23:04:42ashridahit'll get done
23:04:47Paul_The_Nerdashridah: To be noted, mine are replaygained.
23:05:01baobab68mind you i am listening a LOT more and flicking tracks just to hear the cool crossfade...
23:05:07baobab68mine are replaygained as well
23:05:43baobab68which seems to work, i've tried turning replaygain off in the system settings and the volume does change, so RB is doing 'something'....
23:05:45Paul_The_NerdI know at some point that made a difference, though if I recall there was a change at some point so that they irregardless of replaygain they always went through the DSP or something? It added to the boost percentage, whatever the patch was.
23:07:27baobab68well wouldn't they need to be dsp'd for the bass and treble and the stereo widening?

23:07:37baobab68(none of which i use)
23:07:42Paul_The_NerdStereo Widening isn't functioning yet.
23:07:54Paul_The_NerdAnd I don't use the bass/treble either.
23:08:16***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
23:08:18ashridahbass/treble are hardware functions from memory.
23:08:30Paul_The_NerdBut I believe the patch had them dsp'd no matter what. I'm sure there was a cause for it. I don't remember exactly what the reason was.
23:08:32Bagderyes, bass/treble are plain DAC
23:09:06Paul_The_Nerd"Fix some WavPack bugs by forcing DSP use even when not needed for sampling rate conversion or ReplayGain. Costs about 12% boost ratio when DSP would not have been used before." <−−- That one.

23:10:40baobab68oh yeah, i guess replaygain would dsp, wouldn't? I might turn it off until vorbis gets optimised a bit more
23:12:43baobab68but i will have a look at the lcd stuff, just for my own interest
23:13:10baobab68right now i better go "clean those leaves out of the gutter, fix that downpipe, bla bla bla"

23:17:30muesli-foolish question again: would it be theoretically possible to watch videos over any line out on tv?
23:17:45BBubwith the iriver?
23:17:51massiveHi have also thought of this too
23:17:55HooliganNot with an iRiver, no
23:18:02BBubit could never reach the bandwith needed
23:18:08BBubvideo is for pal 5 mhz
23:18:33muesli-not via usb ie?
23:18:49BBubit is only a usb-slave
23:19:13BBuband u cant do anything with the usb except accessing the hdd afaik

23:26:56ashridahmuesli-: usb2go only supports usb 1.1, so you get 800kbps max.
23:26:59 Quit Dima202 (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
23:27:37ashridahthe other usb port is connected via usb-storage, although clearly there's extras given that some units can do DRM
23:28:15ashridahmuesli-: the optical out is connected via a DAC, so that's out, and the connection to the remotes won't have enough bandwidth afaik.
23:29:35cannardor connect the video out of your vcr to your soundcard, record as wav, then play it on your h300 with line out connected to video in
23:29:49cannardadjust bass for colour saturation, and treble for image sharpness
23:30:14ashridahcannard: except that it's clamped at 44.1KHz iirc, which wouldn't be enough
23:33:05ashridahbesides, then you'd be stuck doing the conversion to PAL in software. ick.

23:37:37Bagderthere was such a commit recently
23:37:48muesli-sounds funny
23:38:02Lamedanyone knows a program that can replaygain but skip files that already have reaplygain values in them? - with foobar2000 i have to go through everything.
23:38:15Lamedbagder - yes, we were just talking about it.
23:38:54HooliganI sent the files to Linus...I wonder if he can learn anything interesting

23:41:20Paul_The_NerdLamed: Foobar's the only format-independent (or at least, supports so many that it's essentially so) program I've found to replaygain
23:42:15HooliganI'm gonna call iRiver and see what they say about this H300_Drmkey.hex file
23:42:25HooliganShould be interesting, I'm sure.
