03:05:36RotAtoRunless you want to grab the codec buffer
03:06:36lostlogic32kB is very limiting.
03:07:26lostlogicsokoban has 36k of levels
03:09:28RotAtoRmaybe you could have it load the levels in two separate chunks?
03:09:39lostlogicyeah, much more complicated that way, and I'm lazy ;)

08:24:33Bgermorning, amiconn
08:25:03Paul_The_NerdMornin' Amiconn
08:25:42amiconnlostlogic: There was an idea for the sokoban level cache some time ago: cache as many levels as fit into the remaining plugin ram, calculated dynamically
08:26:16Bagderthere's a patch around for that
08:26:42amiconn[04:37:42] <lostlogic> patch 1396515 submitted to cache sokoban levels. Caches them _all_ (up to 2400) on high memory targets, and batches of 76 on the low memory targets, I think.
08:26:49amiconn[04:37:52] <lostlogic> (there was a previous patch out there, but it sucked.
08:27:17amiconnThe 'batches of 76' seems to be a static amount
08:30:01Paul_The_NerdSpeaking of ram... do flash based players usually use Ram to cache audio data? Like, I understand it so that the HD isn't constantly spinning, and doesn't have to spin up often.
08:32:36 Quit DreamTactix291 (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
08:35:05amiconnPaul_The_Nerd: The one I know does (Ondio), and I think most of them do. The flash memory behaves as a mass storage device, not as directly addressable memory
08:35:53amiconnOf course the amount of buffer RAM is practically irrelevant for battery runtime
08:36:01Paul_The_NerdThat's more or less what I was asking about
08:36:17Paul_The_NerdLike, the Nano has the same amount of Ram as other iPods, for example, and I was curious why that money was spent.
08:36:29Paul_The_NerdAt least I *think* it does...
08:36:38amiconnEven a very small buffer is sufficient because it doesn't matter whether the music is read in many small or few big chunks
08:37:15amiconnHaving more RAM has advantages for other applications though, like an image viewer
08:38:41 Join olisto [0] (
08:38:56Paul_The_NerdI suppose that's true.
08:39:09Paul_The_NerdI wasn't thinking in terms of "things it does other than playing music and running its OS"
08:40:13 Nick Jungti1234_ is now known as Jungti1234 (
08:40:18amiconnKeeping the audio buffer design has another advantage - it makes the system more similar to HD based players. Less engineering required
08:41:27Paul_The_NerdThat was actually my main interest in the Nano. To me, it was essentially an HD based player that used flash instead. I'm not generally a fan of flash players, but I wanted one. I also wanted something that was likely to be replaceable (Who knows when iRiver or someone else will stop manufacturing something, but Apple likes its monemakers)
08:42:50Paul_The_NerdI thought that sudoku had a patch relating to caching levels go in sometime quite a while ago, actually
08:42:53Paul_The_NerdDidn't it?

11:01:21preglowBger: i don't know, i hope so
11:01:50preglowmore can be done with wavpack, like putting more code in iram
11:03:40BgerBecause of the way FLAC is designed, if a bit error happens somewhere in the FLAC file, only that block is affected. In most other lossless formats (including current versions of MAC and WavPack), a single bit error can corrupt the entire file beyond that point. <= is this true ?
11:04:04preglowwavpack handles frame errors very nicely
11:04:12preglowit just mutes the current frame and moves on

11:28:19preglowaccording to my tests, it's a faster and more efficient encoder
11:28:21novimonmaybe I'll start using it then
11:29:17preglowi've never seen wavpack produce a bigger file than flac, at least
11:29:32preglowabout the only good thing i can say about flac is that the rockbox decoder is veyr fast
11:30:18merbananflac has more portable hardware support
11:32:16novimonbut for me there is no seeking in flac, and I dont want to hassle with it, so maybe I just start ripping to wavpack instead

11:36:33Pido unsigned variables take up 8 bits?
11:36:45BagderPi: unsigned chars do
11:37:34Piwhat about plan unsigned (what is used to store colors)
11:37:51Bagderplain "unsigned" shouldn't be used imho as it looks weird
11:37:57Bagderbut that defaults to ints
11:38:07Bagderand ints are 32 bits generally
11:39:14novimondoes rockbox suport wavpack hybrid format?
11:39:21Bgernot yet
11:39:53preglowBagder: but plain 'long' isn't weird?
11:40:14Bagderlong is a variable type, "unsigned" is more of an attribute in my eyes
11:40:24preglowi think 'long' is the same
11:40:34Bgerthe lossy .wv @ 256kbps is rough equal to 160kbps mp3 according to .. and 384 lossy .wv is fully transp.
11:40:35Bagderoriginally, yes
11:40:39_FireFly_novimon: but it plays fine the *.wv files
11:40:41Bagderbut I don't view it as such
11:40:46*amiconn always just uses 'unsigned' for 'unsigned int'
11:40:51preglowamiconn: me too
11:40:56amiconnIt's shorter that way
11:40:56Bagderhardly anyone uses "long int" these days
11:41:06preglowBger: poor comparison, the noise profile is completely different

12:00:03zamzonHi! I'd like to get some advice in implementing some rockbox enhancements. I've just enabled the line-in while playing mp3 by adding two settings to the sound menu. (line-in volume and decoder volume). Now there is another parameter to set: ADC gain for the line in. Either I'll make another new sound setting or try to get the global setting for line-in gain (for recording) What do you think?
12:01:58LinusNPi_: there are two storage spaces
12:02:47Pi_but woulent foreground and background be better stored in the firs space?
12:03:26zamzonSorry, forgot to mention. It's for recorders and I want to be able play DJ a little or have my navi talking to me, while listening music.. :-)

15:53:06amiconnpreglow: "Screen frozen" is for the FM radio screen
15:53:27preglowyes, but what function?
15:53:31amiconnFreezing the screen avoids interference from LCD updates
15:55:15Bgerwhich LCD ?
15:55:19Bgermain or the remote
15:55:26 Join Hans|away [0] (
15:55:32Bgerand h100 or h300
15:55:41preglowprobably both
15:56:03preglowbut i'd guess the main lcd is the biggest contributor
15:56:37Bgerbut the main lcd on h300 isn't updated most of the time
15:56:53Bgeri.e. when the backlight is off
15:57:01preglowit's probably not a h300 only feature
15:57:45Bgerw8, are we talking about a patch or about existing feature ?
15:58:20Bgerah, then sorry
15:58:31amiconnIt's for all platforms with FM radio
15:59:10amiconnThe target most susceptible for that kind of interference is the Ondio FM, especially the one with the old Samsung FM chip
15:59:34amiconn(and of course the H1x0's with the ticking remote problem)
15:59:37Bgerah, amiconn, is there a way to change the default osc. for the FM chip on irivers ?
16:00:25Bgeriirc you said that on your iriver h1x0 the fm radio has worse reception than you ondio fm (which is with the same philips tuner)
16:00:43Hans|away -.... hu, whats that? is it working(DL-Link)?
16:00:46amiconnIt's less sensitive
16:00:55Bgerand the reason for this is the worse osc in the irivers
16:01:10amiconnThe oscillator has nothing to do with it
16:01:19amiconnThe osc frequency isn't used directly
16:01:21Hans|awaythe h1xx FM ist really bad
16:01:31amiconnI think the antenna coupling is worse

17:00:32Matze41so no jpeg, sry
17:01:17saa[b_r]ideryeah true... but he was on his way to add it...
17:01:25Matze41he never said this
17:01:27Matze41did he?
17:01:31saa[b_r]iderhang on...
17:01:37amiconnGrayscale JPEG on H300 should be almost trivial
17:01:59saa[b_r]idersouleata: I think instead of a million different filetype viewers, there should be one image viewer.
17:01:59amiconn(re-)adding colour support to the JPEG decoder is a bit more work
17:02:10saa[b_r]idereli: that is what i'm aiming for...wait for the next version of "viewbox"
17:02:21Matze41amiconn: yes it should be... I tried porting grayscalelib in 5 minutes... but it is very undocumented and i think a little bit complex so i had no success
17:02:54amiconnIt wouldn't make sense to port the grayscale lib to h300
17:03:06saa[b_r]iderthe BMP viewer was his first, then this GIF port....
17:03:09Matze41well, saabrider: i think this is just for "one imageviewer for all files"
17:03:15amiconnThe H300 LCD is able to display enough shades natively
17:03:16saa[b_r]iderthen he disappeared
17:03:23Matze41Gifreader already includes bmp viewer
17:04:05Matze41amiconn: yes i didnt really try to port grayscale lib... and if so, it would just be an alias with 32 grayscales to the "normal" lcd-calls
17:04:18saa[b_r]iderjungti: can you buy a can of coke with that :)
17:04:32Matze41but grayscale lib has this initializing and many points i didnt really understand in 5 minutes :) so maybe another time
17:04:36Jungti1234saab: heh
17:06:06amiconnWhat is necessary is to implement lcd_gray_bitmap[_part]() and lcd_color_bitmap[_part] in the plugin library. Should be very simple compared to what the grayscale lib does

17:09:10amiconnsaa[b_r]ider: There is one reason against an all-in-one image viewer, and that reason is resources
17:09:36amiconnNot *that* important on the newer targets, but very important on archos
17:09:54amiconnHaving one viewer per format also reduces complexity
17:09:57Matze41hm i think we should make different imageviewers for the targetclasses
17:10:06Matze41so one for grayscale
17:10:10Matze41one for b&w
17:10:12Matze41and one for colour
17:10:14saa[b_r]ideramiconn: I take your word for it. and I respect the elderly :)
17:10:37saa[b_r]ider(aka archos)
17:11:00Matze41because it is really no waste on resources to call different decoding&viewing functions for every filetype...
17:11:08FireFly_you could define an image-viewer-framework
17:11:20saa[b_r]iderI don't really mind having seperate viewers.. I don't want to make it harder for you guys to code, by any means
17:11:29amiconnMatze41: Still all different functions would be part of the binary
17:12:03amiconnCheck the size of jpeg.rock for archos and compare with the plugin ram size...
17:12:08Matze41is the whole binary hold in memory when executed?
17:12:42FireFly_and the otherside you can*t have 2 or more image-files open at the same time afaik in the viewer
17:12:43amiconnPerhaps it would be possible to use some kind of framework
17:13:06Matze41or maybe the question has to be: why is the binary so fucking big? The corefunction are only CALLED i think? or are they "copied" into the binary?
17:13:15FireFly_which defines the "ui" and each new viewer has only to reimplement the image-loading
17:13:37amiconnHave a number of image decoder functions, and a generic viewer framework. Link this either into separate viewers or one all-in-one viewer
17:14:25amiconnMatze41: The biggest part _is_ the jpeg decoder itself
17:14:47amiconn...even though it only decodes luma, and doesn't support all jpeg variants
17:14:57amiconn(e.g. no progressive support)
17:14:58Matze41the sourcecode is few times smaller than the binary i think?
17:15:15Matze41and normally sourcecode is with comments etc..
17:15:40FireFly_because on the targest there is no malloc/free so each buffer is a static buffer
17:15:52FireFly_and these static-buffer makes the binary big afaik
17:15:52Matze41is it really only the decoderthing itself, not a "library" or something like that that get linked into the binary?
17:16:09Matze41well that makes sence
17:16:09amiconnjpeg.c: 66816 bytes. Archos recorder jpeg.rock: 26084 bytes
17:16:34amiconnThe archos plugin ram is 32KB (32768 bytes)
17:16:42Matze41why only this low?
17:16:48Matze41i think it has 8mb ram?
17:16:48 Part Pi_
17:16:57amiconnIt has 2MB RAM
17:17:01lostlogicit needs all of those buffers? None can be shared?
17:17:04Matze41well okay :)
17:17:22amiconnIt would be possible to increase the plugin RAM area
17:17:27Matze41and rockbox itself nearly needs 2mb?
17:17:29 Join webguest24 [0] (
17:17:44Matze41yes i think this would be neccessary for some other "nice" plugins too
17:17:57Matze4132kbyte is really nothing
17:18:04FireFly_afaik onw of the biggest parts is the audio buffer
17:18:11amiconnThe problem is that this RAM is set aside *permanently* and can't be used for buffering music
17:18:21webguest24amiconn, how's the wake up feature coming on ?
17:18:24Matze41firefly: recorder has hardware decoder
17:18:32Matze41so no audio buffer in ram i think
17:18:43FireFly_then no crossfade is possible affaik
17:18:45amiconn-> battery runtime is decreased, as it needs to rebuffer more often
17:19:01amiconnMatze41: Of course it has to buffer audio data in RAM
17:19:16Matze41okay maybe audio data is wrong word
17:19:25FireFly_the decoder is faster then reading from disk
17:19:30Matze41oehm, it buffers compressed data
17:20:00Matze41audiodata for me is uncompressed pcm
17:20:14amiconnFireFly_: Of course not. Otherwise it wouldn't even be possible to rebuffer fast enough
17:20:33amiconnMatze41: I said audio data, not PCM audio data
17:20:40Matze41yeah okay sry i misunderstood
17:21:21amiconnOf course rockbox buffers compressed data (exclusively on hwcodec platforms, i.e. archos, and mostly on swcodec platforms, i.e. iriver and others)
17:21:42Matze41yeah okay
17:21:59amiconnIt's more efficient this way.
17:21:59Matze41hmm btw... archos has a harddrive, too?
17:22:13lostlogicDidn't see if someone already considered the possibility of the viewer plugin being able to dynamically load image codecs into part of the plugin ram? would add build time complexity, but not infeasible?
17:22:23Matze41with only 2mb buffer it has to spin up VERY more often than iriver one's i think?
17:22:33amiconnlostlogic: plugins for plugins???
17:22:49amiconnMatze41: Yes.
17:23:05*webguest24 raises hand in the air, high
17:23:18amiconnThat's why we want to keep RAM usage for other purposes than the main buffer as low as possible
17:23:19lostlogicessentially, yes −− but much simplified, because there need not be callbacks, just a couple of callins
17:23:33Matze41amiconn: okay that makes sence
17:23:45Matze41and plugins should be callable with music playing
17:24:05amiconnYes, and generally they are
17:24:20amiconnSome have to stop playback, because they take over the main buffer
17:24:27amiconn(like the jpeg viewer)
17:24:31Matze41oh it does?
17:24:50Matze41well okay makes sence
17:24:59Matze41200kbyte jpeg files or so... cant be decoded in 32kbyte
17:25:22 Part webguest24
17:25:24amiconnYes. Very much impossible to fit the grayscale image buffer (28KB) plus the jpeg file plus the decoded image(s) into 6KB ;)
17:25:33Matze41lol yeah
17:26:17lostlogicOn iRiver it should be possible to do jpeg viewer in plugin ram, on small images at least...?
17:26:22 Join Lear [0] (
17:26:38Matze41but i think mainproblem was not the problem about an all-type imageviewer
17:26:59Matze41because we're talking about color jpeg/gif/bmp/png
17:27:21Matze41and color-targets ( i think its only the iriver?) have enough memory for that
17:27:35FireFly_ipod color
17:27:38lostlogicHmm, also, if the jpeg viewer takes over the mainbuffer any way, why not dynamcally allocate it's other buffers there as well to reduce the .rock size
17:27:39FireFly_and ipod video
17:27:40Matze41lastlogic: yes irivers pluginram is big enough for anything i think
17:27:40amiconnIriver H300 plus iPod color and Nao atm
17:28:15amiconnAh, yes, and iPod video
17:29:10Matze41how about those, do they have "enough" ram? (well, the quotes because no player has enough ram... buffering the whole harddrive content would be enough^^)
17:29:52Matze41because i think we should make the imagecolorviewer in one file
17:30:17Matze41maybe different decoders can even use same variables? they dont run same time...

18:51:20lostlogicmirak: you won't get fine grained timing using the get_time related functions and even the current_tick isn't msec precision. the profiling code uses a system time for finer grain and stuff.
18:52:06mirakthe system time is related to cycles ?

20:03:20mirakICONST_ATTR IDATA_ATTR hum what practical difference is there between this two iram spaces ?
20:03:33mirakLear: are you there ?
20:04:05amiconnBoth do essentially the same thing
20:04:09preglowICONST_ATTR is for const data
20:04:19preglowIDATA_ATTR for non-const initialised data
20:04:35preglowIBSS_ATTR for ordinary data
20:04:44amiconnThe reason is that you can't put 'const' and non-const data into the same section, because then gcc would report a section type conflict
20:05:52LearHuh? Doesn't quite seem to match my experience...
20:06:25mirakwhat's the size of each section ?
20:06:51LearBut maybe that does explain it...
20:07:24LearEach *_ATTR you mean? Not limited as such, all three must fit within the reserved area though.
20:10:55mirakI have put the idct into ICODE_ATTR , but it crashes
20:11:40mirakvoid ICODE_ATTR
20:11:40mirak idct_int32(short *const block)
20:11:52preglowit doesn't work like that
20:12:05preglowvoid myfunction(int hehe) ICODE_ATTR;
20:12:17preglowvoid myfunction(int hehe) { printf("lol %i\n", hehe); }
20:12:31preglowthat's how you need to do it
20:12:41mirakif myfunction(int hehe) ICODE_ATTR; is in the header is it ok ?
20:12:57mirakor it must be also in the .c file preglow ?
20:12:57amiconnAnd, if you do this in a plugin/codec, you need to copy the section yourself
20:13:21preglowjust have a look at the codecs to see how that part works
20:13:32preglowas to the prototype, i actually don't know, i've always had them in the .c file
20:13:43preglowtry it out and see, i have a nagging suspicion that it needs to be in the .c
20:16:19amiconnHaving the prototype with *_ATTR in an included .h file is sufficient

20:21:40mirakI mean the whole memset stuff
20:21:59mirakwhy there is nothing to do for the ICONST N
20:22:22preglowit's because of that, yes
20:22:36preglowthe plugins are just simple binary images, there's no way to tell which part of it contains the const iram data
20:22:52preglowso the plugin itself has to copy it, since it's the only thing that knows which parts are meant to be in iram
20:22:54amiconnThe memcpy() has to be done as soon as you use one of (IDATA_ATTR, ICONST_ATTR, ICODE_ATTR)
20:23:11amiconnThe memset() _should_ be done as soon as you use IBSS_ATTR

20:33:08preglowi agree it's not the number one thing rockbox needs at the moment
20:33:17preglowbut it would be cool, and i'm willing to bet, sooner or later we will need it
20:33:32mirakit takes 821 ticks to decode 20 frames. by putting an array used in idct I gain 12 ticks and got to 809. By putting the idct function into iram I go down from 809 to 790. I gain 19 ticks.
20:33:43preglowfurther splitting codecs into different parts (metadata, loaders) certainly will
20:34:24mirakthat's really not much
20:35:31preglowwell, the trick is finding the important stuff
20:35:50Learand profiling is useful there...
20:36:13mirakprobably, but seems complicated for me for now
20:36:31mirakI will just note this gains in the code for now
20:36:38preglowit isn't very complicated
20:36:55mirakI would be interested in knowing wich method is called the most
20:37:02mirakI guess profiling can do that ?
20:38:45preglowthat's what it does
20:39:25mirakbut you must put a call to the profilethread method in each function ?
20:39:31preglowit's automatic
