#rockbox log for 2006-02-02

00:03:08*linuxstb prepares a new backdrop patch...
00:03:14Rob2222hi all
00:04:29Rob2222H300 runtime at new unit with stock battery: RB 10h20m, IR 16h50. If someone is interested.
00:04:48Rob2222I think this was my last benchmark for now.
00:05:34 Join webguest99 [0] (
00:05:49Rob2222So RB can't reach iriver, yet, but for me its ok.
00:05:58LinusNRob2222: there is a test 'd like to try
00:05:59 Join TCK- [0] (
00:06:22LinusNRob2222: run a benchmark with a completely static wps
00:06:23 Join goa [0] (
00:06:52LinusNi.e only artist/title/album and no peakmeter
00:07:06Bagderor just a fixed text with no song info
00:07:23Rob2222i had no peakmeter at all
00:08:50Rob2222thats my WPS
00:08:58Rob2222all benches are done with that
00:09:01Rob2222pure text
00:10:16Rob2222LinusN: Do you think this WPS needs much power?
00:10:16LinusNyes, but many things on that screen are constantly updated, like the battery, progress bar, time left etc
00:10:22LinusNi bet some texts scroll as well
00:10:30Rob2222yes, 1 line
00:10:37Rob2222depends on filename length
00:10:41Rob2222ok, i can try
00:10:43 Join kkurbjun [0] (
00:10:59LinusNRob2222: even disable the status bar
00:11:07Rob2222will do.
00:11:14LinusNjust as an experiment to see how much it affects the battery life
00:11:31Rob2222battery_bench i can run?
00:11:49Rob2222can i have batt voltage and batt % on wps?
00:12:56LinusNpreferrably not...
00:13:08linuxstbNew backdrop image patch on the tracker:
00:13:33linuxstbDetails are in my comment to Linus's original patch.

00:18:17LinusNMidgey34: yuck!
00:18:41LinusNMidgey34: but i'm sure it works :-)
00:18:44Rob2222LinusN: Cause the H300 will not finish charging before i go to bed the bench will start tomorrow.
00:18:53LinusNRob2222: no rush
00:19:11Rob2222LinusN: I wanna know it, too. ;)
00:19:19Midgey34oh it works fine, its just ugly
00:19:40BHSPitLappydoes anyone else think what I said is true, about text and progressbars being coordinated, instead of guesswork
00:19:54Midgey34I sorta overlooked saving when the player has split
00:20:20linuxstbBHSPitLappy: Yes, that's planned.
00:20:58BHSPitLappyseems we're in a "make it look good" phase at the moment :D
00:21:03linuxstbOr at least, something close - viewports which you then draw lines of text into.
00:21:26 Join peran [0] (
00:21:28BHSPitLappynot to discredit all the work going on otherwise
00:21:34BHSPitLappylinuxstb: just as good.
00:21:34peranhi everyone
00:21:55perani have a ifp795 which firmware should i use then?
00:22:00BHSPitLappyjust setting the top-left point of a text string would be good enough
00:22:15LinusNlinuxstb: now on to precalculating the offset to the backdrop buffer
00:22:18linuxstbBHSPitLappy: But you also need to set a width - to either clip the text or set the scroll area.
00:22:45LinusNperan: the ifp700 port is barely usable
00:23:11BHSPitLappyhey, you're both swedish.
00:23:31LinusNperan: rockbox is not yet functional on the ifp7xx
00:23:35ashridahBHSPitLappy: holy crap! there's more than one swede in existence?!
00:23:45Rob2222All devs: Must it be, that RB clears the playback buffer when pressing STOP? Sometimes I press STOP, but I only wanted PAUSE for a second. When I press PLAY again, I must wait for the re-read of the mp3 file.
00:23:51BHSPitLappyashridah: damn lying american education system

00:24:11kkurbjunthere's a working version of doom on sourceforge now
00:24:14LinusNRob2222: if you want to pause, why not press pause?
00:24:21BHSPitLappythat's what it's for
00:25:20kkurbjunI think it will work for the Ipods too with some changes to the makefile and the button layouts as Paul_The_Nerd was doing
00:25:32BHSPitLappyhey kkurbjun
00:25:54kkurbjunBHS yes?
00:25:59linuxstbkkurbjun: We don't have many buttons on the ipod... But it will be good to compare the performance with iDoom.
00:25:59Rob2222LinusN: Thats a good question I can't answer. :)
00:25:59BHSPitLappyjust greeting.
00:26:14amiconnMidgey34: That bool->int thing is highly platform dependent
00:26:18Rob2222But it happens often to me ;)
00:26:27BHSPitLappylinuxstb: like i've said before, I'm completely comfortable with iDoom's controls
00:26:44BHSPitLappythen again, I don't have huge fingers :P (nano)
00:27:01BHSPitLappybut a huge-fingered person wouldn't have a nano...hmm...
00:27:16*BHSPitLappy goes off on a random tangent of incoherent blabber
00:27:17Midgey34alright, I look into changing it. other bugs are taking up more of my time
00:27:25amiconnI would use bj->is_split ? 1 : 0
00:27:40amiconn(or whatever numbers you need)
00:28:07kkurbjun: ), oh.. linuxtxb: I would be interested, I think it will actually be better, I just put in a hashing algorithm for the wad stuff from brboom that idoom doesn't have. Other then that they're almost the same asside from other file handling stuff though.
00:28:54BHSPitLappydid paul figure out the wad loading thing?
00:28:59linuxstbkkurbjun: The only difference could be if iDoom using the second CPU in the ipod. Did you notice anything about that?
00:29:13linuxstbThey refer to it as the "cop" (co-processor)
00:29:28BHSPitLappyidoom's developer is on, i believe
00:29:40BHSPitLappyhe spoke up a few minutes ago in the ipl channel
00:30:29*BHSPitLappy hopes he isn't following my talking about him
00:30:41kkurbjunlinuxtxb.. no I dind't see anything about that in the diffs I was making when I was trying to figure out the graphics problems
00:31:21Midgey34so does this mean the graphical problems are fixed?
00:31:22linuxstbI'm looking forward to testing it.
00:31:29Rob2222Btw, how far is the iBattlefield port? *duck
00:31:39kkurbjunMidgey34: yes, they are gone
00:32:28kkurbjunIt still messes up sometimes when you set it to low quality graphics and resize the screen though. Those problems arn't nearly as bad. The main view is still ok
00:32:34Rob2222Will doom make it in CVS maybe?
00:32:57Bagderpatience young padowan
00:34:01Rob2222its a nice gimmick but if you have to patch the firmware for it ...
00:34:10*amiconn notices that s/o replaced the h300 image in the daily builds page with one showing the rockbox logo
00:34:35*BHSPitLappy made it
00:34:35amiconnNow the only ones not showing the rockbox logo are the h100 and h120 images
00:34:59amiconnI can do h140 tomorrow, but that will be black (of course)
00:35:23 Join JdGordon [0] (
00:35:40amiconnThe h140 is black while the h120 is silver (at least in europe)

00:35:57 Quit goa ("Client suicide")
00:36:05Rob2222LinusN: Regarding the simple WPS benchmark. Do you think its ok to go short in the debug screen and read the battery voltage every 2h maybe?

00:36:38BHSPitLappyif someone has a sim built for h1xx, feel free to send a screen dump of the splash screen my way
00:36:38amiconnIn fact the device chart already contains a h140 image w/ rockbox logo
00:37:29BagderI want ipods in the devicechart...
00:37:56linuxstbLinusN: I've done the bitmap offset calculation...
00:37:59Bagderand the ifp5xx could be removed
00:38:13*Cassandra ponders a Rockbox Folding@Home port.
00:38:27amiconnBagder: Could be replaced by 7xx
00:38:37Bagderyes, that would be more appropriate
00:39:03amiconnIs there a suitable image of the iPod video somewhere?
00:39:13amiconn(and iriver ifp 7xx)
00:39:58JdGordonBHSPitLappy: i have the h140 sim built... what screeny u want?
00:39:59LinusNRob2222: yes
00:40:16BHSPitLappythe splash screen, JdGordon
00:40:21LinusNlinuxstb: update the patch then
00:41:16JdGordonjust the screen.. or the whole sim?

00:42:05BHSPitLappyheh...dumb me
00:43:05linuxstbLinusN: Done.
00:43:11LinusNsaw that
00:43:12linuxstbamiconn: I don't know.
00:43:27Midgey34wow, I love firefox's update... so easy
00:43:51Midgey34so much better than downloading the full installer on windows
00:44:50BHSPitLappyh100, h120 = identical?
00:45:10Bagderno, just almost
00:48:49amiconnBah, the apple site is horrible
00:49:08Cassandralinuxstb, what's backdrop performance like now, and do you have a screenshot?
00:50:10BHSPitLappyamiconn: isn't the 140 pic already done, or did you mean add it to nightlies
00:50:21peranwhich firmware should i use for my IFP-795
00:50:32BHSPitLappythe one that's on it?
00:50:34LinusNCassandra: performance is still not great, but it's not getting any better than this
00:50:55amiconnBHSPitLappy: I mean the build table, but I'm not sure whether the h140 pic would be adequate
00:51:09BHSPitLappywhat? the h140 pic is great
00:51:28Moos... but silver ;)
00:51:39peranLinusN: jag sg att du svarade mig tidigare... finns det ngon annan firmware du vet av som fungerar tillsvidare?
00:52:17LinusNendast irivers originalfirmware
00:52:23Cassandralinusn: So is it useable, or does it look rubbish in practice?
00:52:38LinusNlooks great, but it is kind of sluggish
00:52:56amiconnLinusN: Why do you think it won't get better?

00:54:40amiconnLinusN: Not with single pixels. I'm thinking burst mode here, either buffering the line in registers, or iram if that's easier
00:54:52CassandraNow why do I suspect that image has been manipulated?
00:55:00BHSPitLappybecause it has?
00:55:17LinusNamiconn: yeah, that's an option
00:55:23BHSPitLappydoes it look terrible, Cassandra ?
00:55:35midkayit looks great..
00:55:35CassandraLooks fine.
00:55:58CassandraI used logic to work out it was a mockup. ;)
00:55:58midkayperhaps a pointless update, i doubt anyone can see the screen anyways without blowing it up 1000% :)
00:56:22amiconnLinusN: When I get around doing my opts, single pixel handling will only be used for single pixel, arbitrary line, and perhaps vertical line drawing
00:56:38LinusNamiconn: great
00:56:39amiconnEverything else will handle a memory line at a time
00:56:48BHSPitLappyCassandra: ah, because the rest is identical to the current one? :D
00:57:21CassandraDoes performance revert to normal if you aren't using a background?
00:57:22amiconnlinuxstb: Does any iPod have s/pdif? Separate line out?
00:57:36amiconnRemote control?
00:57:43BHSPitLappyline out from the dock connector
00:57:47linuxstbThere is a line-out via the dock connector (I have a tiny adapter). No s/pdif, and yes for the r/c
00:57:49BHSPitLappyremote from the remote connector
00:57:49 Part peran
00:58:01amiconnRemote with display?
00:58:04linuxstb(but the r/c are third-party accessories).
00:58:08CassandraBHSPitLappy, nope. I was pretty sure you didn't have an old style iHP-1xx.
00:58:10BHSPitLappy(for the nano and 5G, remotes are now through the dock as well)
00:58:22BHSPitLappyCassandra: heh, good logic
00:58:57linuxstbamiconn: Yes, there is a RC with LCD - but I think it just works by asking the ipod for the current track info and displaying it. i.e. the RC is in control of the display, not the ipod.
00:58:59JdGordonLinusN: that looks awesome
00:59:12CassandraI'd shoot my load, if I had one to shoot.
00:59:32linuxstbThere is some kind of serial protocol for ipod accessories, but I haven't really looked into it.
00:59:36CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
00:59:36*amiconn isn't excited about backdrop
00:59:41amiconnIs that bad? ;)
00:59:46JdGordonCassandra: not quite _thaaaat_ awesome..
01:00:03linuxstbamiconn: It's your job to restrain us.
01:00:16Cassandraamiconn, you're so 20th Century!
01:00:27BHSPitLappydid Cassandra say what i thought they said?
01:00:35amiconnBah, why do iPod manuals not contain technical specifications?
01:00:45amiconnOr am I too dumb to fund them?
01:00:49BHSPitLappyamiconn: because where's the licensing money in that? :P
01:00:55CassandraWhat did you think I said?
01:01:07linuxstbamiconn: Apple's website has some specs I think.
01:01:08BHSPitLappysomething gross.
01:01:15amiconnI mean stuff like dimensions, weight etc, all that is on the web site
01:01:20CassandraYou're probably right then.
01:01:21amiconn...but not for the older models
01:01:32*BHSPitLappy is thoroughly offended and disgusted.
01:01:38CassandraDon't worry. Biological impossibility. ;)
01:01:48linuxstbamiconn: You're adding them to the device chart?
01:01:59amiconnyes, I'm trying to

01:17:23Paul_The_NerdFair enough then. I too prefer monochrome screens in the end but my preference is more of a cosmetic thing.

01:20:11NightCatNeed someone a one more tool for cygwin to convert ttf to bdf (fonts)?
01:20:39CassandraI really don't think the WPS is a good place to put the background.
01:20:42linuxstbLinusN: I assume your bitmap is 220x176? It will ignore it otherwise.
01:20:58NightCatI find one, it works with cygwin: 3 fonts for half minute... :)
01:20:58linuxstbCassandra: But it's not really a background - it's part of the wps design.
01:21:21LinusNlinuxstb: aaah
01:21:24CassandraIt's quite conceiveable that more than one background will work with a particular WPS. It ought to be user's choice with a default specified via themes.
01:22:04Paul_The_NerdCassandra: From the looks of the patch notes, there's a global one and a WPS specific one...
01:22:12LinusNlinuxstb: works
01:22:14Cassandralinuxstb, Sometimes yes, sometimes no.
01:22:27NightCatThen nobody need it yes? Ok.
01:22:33CassandraConsider some people might want a favourite photo as their background.
01:22:39LinusNlinuxstb: looks like gdb doesn't quite like the backdrop offset hack
01:22:42linuxstbCassandra: I'm starting to be convinced.
01:23:08Cassandralinuxstb, another option is to have a tag but make it user overrideable.
01:23:22CassandraThat complicates code though.
01:23:32linuxstbI agree - we don't need two ways to set the wps background.
01:24:05linuxstbBut I can see people wanting more background images - e.g for the FM screen.
01:24:21CassandraConsider also that with a seperate background, you could have two wpses share a background but put different data in the 'gaps'.
01:24:59LinusNi bet most wps makers would want to use the backdrop feature to overlay text
01:25:11linuxstbBut I can see the case of multiple backgrounds all being compatible with the same wps
01:25:12 Quit gtkspert (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
01:25:24CassandraI think there's room for both types.
01:25:43CassandraI see boxes as being the 'choose your own background' type.
01:25:46NightCatFor the WPS: (I said it before) I want that when I put some text in WPS it writes on the pictures right (without background color rectangle...)
01:26:11LinusNNightCat: that works with the backdrop
01:26:16CassandraBut I can also see people deisgning some minimlistic graphical widgets, or using the current iPodesque themes with a personalised background.
01:26:24NightCatThat works already?
01:26:38linuxstbSo are we all agreed that we get rid of my shiny new WPS tag (at least I learnt a little about the wps code) and just make it a config file value?
01:26:42LinusNwith the backdrop patch i and linuxstb are working on
01:27:04NightCatAh, then thanks for work.
01:27:05LinusNlinuxstb: i'm not convinced
01:27:20Paul_The_NerdSo, wouldn't that be as simple as letting someone select a global background file, and then if the WPS has a %X tag, overriding it *in* the wps?
01:27:29Paul_The_Nerdif it doesn't have the tag, it uses the global one.
01:27:33linuxstbI don't feel strongly either way - apart from the fact I've already implemented one solution.
01:27:33LinusNwhat if the wps needs a certain backdrop?
01:27:46Paul_The_NerdI mean, if a person *really* wants Bob's WPS, but doesn't like the fact that it includes a background, they *could* remove it.
01:27:50LinusNPaul_The_Nerd: my thinking exactly
01:28:14BHSPitLappyPaul_The_Nerd: how did your doom adaptation for the ipod go?
01:28:14Cassandralinus: Well maybe we can do the hybrid the other way round then.
01:28:29CassandraHave the config tag overriden by a WPS tag.
01:28:32BHSPitLappyever get it running?
01:28:43LinusNCassandra: yes
01:28:43 Join goa [0] (
01:28:47NightCatCassandra: agree.
01:28:49CassandraThen the WPS designer can force a background if they really must.
01:29:00Paul_The_NerdBHSPitLappy: It's not mine, but I'm not able to get it running.
01:29:03LinusNman, this is exciting, this has so much potantial

01:30:18BHSPitLappyah, right, that was the problem

02:01:59Midgey34is there any reason for splitting the iriver columns based on the device chart by capacity?

02:02:30NightCatA :)
02:02:32Midgey34in dimension for example
02:03:13NightCatlinuxstb: And can I one more question?
02:03:37Midgey34similar to how the ipod color column is set up
02:03:45NightCatlinuxstb: Where to customize (or how) the background (not WPS) image?
02:03:58linuxstbNightCat: I'm working on that now....
02:04:02NightCatlinuxstb: Now it is something like gradient :)
02:04:14NightCatBut very lovely :)
02:04:16linuxstbThe idea is that you just browse to a bmp file in the file browser and "play" it.
02:04:37NightCatlinuxstb: I think is too difficult... For what?
02:04:54BHSPitLappyNightCat: you know where the wps guide is, right?
02:05:08linuxstbNightCat: I don't understand your question.
02:05:16NightCatMaybe just the file for ex.: .rockbox/back.bmp (BHSPitLappy: Yes)
02:05:39amiconnlinuxstb: Playing a .bmp can be confusing

02:08:25NightCatAnd in the WPS X tag is working: that is all.
02:08:27XavierGrmost of the WPS's there say 24bit
02:08:34XavierGrI thought that the H300 screen is 18
02:08:50NightCatAnd works in 16 bit mode :)
02:08:59XavierGrah okay
02:09:07Paul_The_NerdXavierGr: THe h300 screen is 18, but in Rockbox it's displayed at 16. The image files are 24bit though, and adjusted automatically
02:09:42NightCatlinuxstb: Will you work a long time today?
02:09:52linuxstbNo, it's past my bedtime already.
02:10:01NightCatlinuxstb: Ok.
02:10:06XavierGrIs there any intention to move to 18 bit or is that going to clog the CPU more?
02:10:20Midgey34it would be a lot slower
02:10:32linuxstbPaul_The_Nerd, amiconn: I agree with you about playing bmp files. What about a "Set as backdrop" option on the onplay menu?
02:10:50Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: That, on the other hand, is *perfect* to me. :)
02:11:21NightCatlinuxstb: It can be right.
02:11:38amiconnXavierGr: I'm almost certain we won't move to 18bit on H3x0. The driver is slow enough with 16bit...
02:11:47NightCatMany systems does like this :)
02:12:46*amiconn was surprised by the odd position of the iPod nano earphone socket...
02:13:21XavierGramiconn: There are not left any magic optimizations like your latest?
02:14:27RotAtoRIs there any h300 owner (or anyone else who cares) who could test an updated version of bejeweled?
02:14:34RotAtoRpatch+bmps and a fresh h300 .rock are located here:
02:14:47amiconn18 bit would be _a lot_ slower, since we would have to use a 32bit framebuffer
02:14:53NightCatI'll do it now.
02:15:01RotAtoRNightCat: thanks
02:15:07amiconnWe could use 24bit, but that would probably be even slower than 32bit
02:15:08NightCat2 minutes...
02:15:31Paul_The_NerdRotAtoR: What did you change?
02:16:01NightCatlinuxstb: That is thouse gradiet wich I saw? main_backdrop[y][x] = LCD_RGBPACK(182, 198, 229-y);
02:16:20Midgey34RotAtoR: transparencies?
02:16:28RotAtoRPaul_The_Nerd: added proper framerate limiting and used the new transparent bitmap stuff (it now was a checkerboard background)
02:16:34linuxstbNightCat: That was just a test to prove my code was working. That probably won't make it to CVS.
02:16:48XavierGramiconn: do you think that we could implement 18bit rnedering only on the JPEG viewer?
02:16:50RotAtoRMidgey34: yep
02:17:37Rob2222is there a way to end doom without reset?
02:17:56NightCatRotAtoR: .rock file for newest build?

02:18:26NightCatRotAtoR: Then I can't test it... I have some elder build...
02:18:42NightCatIt says: Incompotible model...
02:18:58RotAtoRahh, too bad, you could always update it ;)
02:19:20NightCatRotAtoR: I'll update to new build only when I finishes my new WPS...
02:19:27Paul_The_NerdRotAtoR: Is the update only valid on H300, or could I compile it for Nano?
02:19:42RotAtoRPaul_The_Nerd: it works for the nano as well
02:19:59NightCatI'll try it when update :)
02:20:09RotAtoRI also added support for the ipod video, iriver ifp7xx, and iaudio x5 for the fun of it ;)
02:20:11NightCatI like bejeweled :)
02:20:23Paul_The_NerdHehehe. Are the bejeweled.diff and bejeweled bitmaps zips valid?
02:21:33NightCatRotAtoR: You works on bejeweled?
02:21:46RotAtoRNightCat: yep :)
02:21:55NightCatI think there have to be the possibility to input the name to score...
02:22:13RotAtoRPaul_The_Nerd: just unzip the zip in your main rockbox folder, it already has the folder heirarchy embedded so the bitmaps should end up in the right place
02:22:38NightCatAnd, maybe, better menu like in all RB controlled by joystick.
02:22:47Paul_The_NerdRotAtoR: I installed a previous version when you first added external bitmap support. :)
02:22:59RotAtoRNightCat: the names are something I don't personally want, it's only a bother to have to enter them

02:26:47NightCatlinuxstb: How does it do?
02:27:05Paul_The_NerdA significant change of color scheme.
02:27:39RotAtoRPaul_The_Nerd: yep :), may need some tweaking
02:28:25Midgey34RotAtoR: looks nice

02:28:45NightCatYes I know... sorry...
02:28:52Midgey34selecting a piece simply inverts the color still correct?
02:29:01RotAtoRMidgey34: yes
02:30:01Paul_The_NerdRotAtoR: There's some white speckles around the edges of the icons on Nano, I assume you just used a fill for the hot pink, which of course means some of the antialiasing grays are still there?
02:30:57RotAtoRI tried to get rid of the worst of the antialiasing
02:31:11RotAtoRI have checked the nano graphics specifically yet
02:31:26Paul_The_NerdI'll go through and fix 'em, then, if you'd like. Shouldn't take but a couple minutes

03:14:04Paul_The_NerdRotAtoR: Well, if it used the current BG color, then it wouldn't stand out against the background as much. :-P... It should probably have its own custom BG/FG settings, or something.
03:14:13webguest99Has anyone tried resizing the progress bar using Paprica's commit earlier today? I used the %pb|height|leftpos|rightpos| syntax but it doesn't seem to be working...
03:14:41NightCat2We have this patch commited for now.
03:14:51RotAtoRPaul_The_Nerd: but it still uses the current foreground color, so if the foreground is also light you can;t read it either
03:14:52NightCat2Look at news...
03:15:12Paul_The_NerdRotAtoR: I know. As I said, it should probably allow you to set both *just* for it, ideally.
03:15:19NightCat2RotAtoR: I think it's a bag...
03:15:27NightCat2bug i meant :)
03:15:57webguest99Maybe I'm doing something wrong...I used this: %pb|8|120|200| - but it shows up just like normal all the way across the screen
03:16:53RotAtoRperhaps splash() should also set foreground to LCD_BLACK if visibility is the issue
03:17:06Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: I just have to say, even in its current state, I'm already in love with the background patch.
03:17:49NightCat2webguest99: I think you doing something wrong: cause I tried this today and it was working...
03:18:16NightCat2Paul_The_Nerd: I'm with you!!!
03:18:40dpassen1aren't the 2 last numbers supposed to be offsets from the edge? rather than position?
03:18:50linuxstbPaul_The_Nerd: So am I. Imagine if you can set a "viewport" for the menus, so they are drawn inside a virtual box
03:19:07NightCat2dpassen1: No it's an start and end...
03:19:51Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: The "it doesn't look pretty" crowd would suddenly lose a *lot* of wind
03:20:57Midgey34linuxstb: I was just going to ask about implement a viewpoint type thing, I think its a great idea
03:21:00NightCat2It's just a first step! Somewhen we could choose a bitmaps for all: for ex. for menu items!
03:21:33linuxstbNightCat2: That's going a little too far... :) We need to leave some memory for the audio.
03:21:56NightCat2For what? ;)

03:22:04dpassen1iPod Video has 64 MB of memory, doesn't it?
03:22:14Midgey34the menu icons seem awkward when using a bigger font
03:22:31Midgey34they'll built for a font like snap
03:22:32webguest99NightCat2: I figured it out. I copied a wps file over, loaded the wps, and it didn't resize. I then powered the player off, turned it back on, and then it did resize...very strange
03:23:02Paul_The_Nerddpassen1: the 60gb version does.
03:23:29dpassen1When my 120 goes, that will be a very appealing model.

03:24:33Paul_The_NerdWhen my 120 goes, I plan to do everything in my power to replace the part that did.
03:25:05NightCatlinuxstb: It was a bug. I've delete the string and now it takes the bmp image...
03:25:10Midgey34hopefully its not the hdd, those are ridiculously pricey
03:25:16dpassen1Until the iPod port materialized, that was my thought. Probably get a 2200 mAH batt and a 40 GB single platter HDD, but now I'm not so sure.
03:25:47NightCatlinuxstb: But rebuilds this bmp only after tools/configure ...
03:26:06Paul_The_Nerddpassen1: I like the features of the H120 hardware anyway. My only interest in the iPod port was because of the Nano. :)
03:26:26dpassen1Do you use optical out often?
03:26:39NightCatlinuxstb: Now I've changed the standart logo with the bigger one and wait while it building...
03:26:47Paul_The_NerdI've used the optical in a few times
03:26:56Paul_The_NerdI also love the LCD remote, and FM tuner.
03:27:02linuxstbNightCat: You can't just change the size of the bitmaps - you'll have to change the definition in (I think) apps/recorder/icons.h
03:27:12Paul_The_NerdBoth of those are essential to my use of it.
03:27:32dpassen1I would love the LCD remote if the in and out weren't on the same side, and it didn't require an adapter to fit most of my headphones.
03:27:52Paul_The_NerdAh, neither of those has caused a problem for me.
03:28:15dpassen1I've actually taken to using the remote mainly as a car interface.
03:28:47Paul_The_NerdI tend to plug my earphones into the main unit often anyway

03:54:05NightCatlinuxstb: good night :)
03:54:14Paul_The_Nerdjaebird: I don't believe there's anything available yet
03:54:59jaebirdalright...well, I'll keep my ipodlinux for awhile then :)
03:55:14jaebirdor maybe buy a nano...they are kinda cool.
03:55:33Paul_The_NerdThey are *very* cool. :-P RockBox more geared to music?
03:56:57jaebirdI've been following (and using) ipodlinux for awhile
03:57:03Paul_The_NerdIt's geared almost entirely to music
03:57:16jaebirdand they seem to be more general purpose...doom, games, blah blah
03:57:19Paul_The_NerdFor example, I'm listening to a Q8 vorbis file right now, without skips or pops. :)
03:57:34jaebirdbut Ogg support is still unsupported (in the general sense)
03:58:15Paul_The_NerdWell, on rockbox it's not. Gapless vorbis playback is a reality.
03:58:20jaebirdPaul_The_Nerd: Q8 :)
03:58:51jaebirdsomebody buy slimx some his place of work and tell them he is sick!
03:59:34Paul_The_NerdThough, at equal bitrates, vorbis seems to stress the ipod *less* than MP3 (at least, using the responsiveness of Rockbox's UI as a gauge)
03:59:42ashridahjaebird: i know lots of applications that use ogg
04:00:10jaebirdLemme get this straight...from what I've read once lcd is in 4g non-color is hip to be square.
04:00:37jaebirdashridah: what do you mean?
04:00:38ashridahheaps of games do. bunch of media players do (and it's trivial to get codecs for many others). enough music players do. scarily enough, a couple of players support flac
04:01:00Paul_The_Nerdjaebird: One the LCD is in, yes, 4g mono should basically be at the same level as 4g color, I believe.
04:01:05ashridahhell, i know of p2p networks that deal exclusively in flac and/or shorten
04:01:28jaebirdashridah: how does this pertain to ipodlinux?
04:01:58ashridahokay, i've read up a bit. i only saw "but Ogg support is still unsupported (in the general sense)"
04:02:00*ashridah shuts up
04:02:27Paul_The_Nerdjaebird: I think when you said "general sense" he thought everywhere, rather than "generally within ipodlinux"
04:02:40jaebirdAll of my 600 (exagerates to look better) CDs are ripped to Ogg :)
04:02:59Paul_The_NerdWell, once the LCD driver is working, you should be able to just drag 'em over, and go.

04:07:28Paul_The_NerdThere are still a few major bugs
04:07:53Paul_The_NerdSkipping tracks is a dodgy concept, as when you stop on one it *may* not play. If you hold Next-Track it'll fast-forward, just do that for a fraction of a second, and release, and playback will resume
04:08:56jaebirdWe live for bugs...that is our industry
04:09:03Paul_The_NerdActually, I guess that's the most "major" as everything else is like "The menus get slow while music is playing" or "Gapless sometimes isn't 100% perfect"

04:18:40Paul_The_NerdThat's not all supported though
04:19:03Paul_The_NerdFor support, umm... MP3, Vorbis, FLAC, MPC, AAC, AIFF, ALAC, FLAC, AIFF, and WAV if I recall correctly.
04:19:16Paul_The_NerdOh, and Wavpack
04:19:30Paul_The_NerdAAC isn't consistently realtime though, it's not optimized.

05:51:19 Quit XavierGr (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
05:52:05Paul_The_NerdWell, arguably the iAudios are more feature rich in terms of hardware, whereas at the moment the iPod port is more advanced. The iAudio port *should* catch up with it, barring unforeseen doom.
05:53:10gantrixxis there a rockbox for the iaudio x5?
05:53:48Paul_The_NerdThere will very likely be one. At the moment there's no bootloader.
05:54:43gantrixxI've never used the rockbox ui....not yet. is it that much better than the other ui's?
05:54:58gantrixxI'd say the website needs more pictures
05:55:04Paul_The_NerdWell, the UI is text based.
05:55:32Paul_The_NerdIt's the format support, customizeable while playing screens, and things like that which make it appealing to people.
05:56:00gantrixxwhen you say format, you mean mp3 + ogg?
05:56:41Paul_The_Nerdmp3, ogg, wavpack, flac, alac, mpc, aiff, wav, etc.
06:02:42DreamTactix291the vorbis and wavpack support are especially nice to me
06:02:46gantrixxwell currently I have a Mpio HD300
06:02:53gantrixxI can't say enough bad things about it
06:02:57gantrixxit's a piece of crap
06:03:17gantrixxThe one thing I like about the iPod is that there is so much aftermarket stuff for it
06:03:25gantrixxbut it doesn't do ogg and m3u
06:03:34DreamTactix291i just like how my H140 does what it's supposed to
06:03:35DreamTactix291and works
06:04:11Paul_The_Nerdgantrixx: Well, with rockbox it'll do ogg and m3u, *but* a lot of the peripherals that use the dock connector *may* not be supported for a while, or at all.
06:04:30dpassen1That's why you dual boot ;-)
06:04:56gantrixxis rockbox easy on power consumption?
06:06:12Paul_The_Nerdgantrixx: Depends on the platform. On the Archos' and H120 it's been known to have equal or greater battery life
06:06:36DreamTactix291H1xx battery is very good

11:22:19needleboyi think he messed it up when he enlarged the bricks...
11:22:27preglowbah, i suclk
11:22:39needleboypreglow, supposed to be?
11:22:42preglowpaprica should steal rotators frame rate control code
11:23:09needleboyi'll let him know
11:23:15needleboywhere can he find it? :)
11:23:34needleboyhe'll probably know... nevermind
11:23:41Membrillorotator worked on bubbles didnt he?
11:23:44linuxstbI think the brickmania change was to use transparent bitmaps - that would slow things down.
11:24:31Membrillowhy is he using transparency. why doesnt he just make the cracks be black pixels rather than be transparent showing the black background
11:24:49preglowhe'll want a background imge
11:24:54preglowgod damn, i suck at typing
11:25:02linuxstbYou would have to ask him. Maybe he draws the cracks on top of the normal bricks.
11:25:17needleboyi think Linus told him to use transparency...
11:25:27Paul_The_NerdBut then the black borders on the boxes will be more ideal, wouldn't they? At least... I seem to remember the bricks being pressed against each other, without space, in other games like that one...
11:25:43Paul_The_NerdOh, multiple hit bricks?
11:25:51*Paul_The_Nerd hasn't played the rockbox version.
11:26:03preglowdoes brickmania work on nano now
11:26:08linuxstbNo :(
11:26:37Paul_The_NerdI played if for like, 5 seconds on the H300 sim.
11:26:40linuxstbThere is a port to the H1x0 that I assume makes the code more portable - but someone will need to create smaller bitmaps.
11:27:02linuxstbBut it's great on my ipod.
11:27:31Paul_The_NerdRetailOS has a game like that too, if I recall

11:29:45linuxstbMembrillo: Looking at the new bitmaps Paprica added to CVS, he draws the cracks on top of the normal brick bitmaps.
11:30:18preglowthat operation can be precalculated
11:30:22preglowand should be
11:31:06linuxstbAbsolutely. Memory for brick bitmaps isn't an issue.

11:35:13linuxstbIt's called when buttons are pressed?
11:35:22preglowwell, yes, but that's not what makes the peak meter lag
11:35:42preglowthe same thing that makes the peak meter lag is what makes the ui lag
11:36:32preglowthat is, it might have gotten slightly better
11:36:35linuxstbI just thought it might help if the cpu usage was marginally too high.
11:36:36preglowbut it's still a bit sluggish
11:36:57preglowi think the sluggishness might just come from the nature of the clickwheel
11:37:00linuxstbSo I should just delete the udelay?
11:37:05preglowthe rest of the rockbox ports might be just as sluggish
11:37:17preglowyou just don't notice it until you have a more delicate control

11:44:39zhilikTo anyone with a H300: A guy says that he formated the hard disk and he can't copy files to it, thow the radio works. Does the firmware require any files or is it stored totaly in the flash?
11:45:07preglowrockbox needs files
11:45:15Bg3rzhilik he probably didn't formatted it correctly
11:45:23Bg3rpreglow there wouldn't be radio in rockbox ...
11:45:28linuxstbpreglow: Restoring the delay in int fixes it. Maybe a bit of placebo, bit it seems faster.
11:45:30needleboyprobably formatted to NTFS or something
11:45:44preglowlinuxstb: try seeing how low that delay has to go

11:51:40zhilikneedlboy: He says that after he formatted the disk, the computer doesn't see the H320. This seems strange, if he had simply formatted it NTFS. He might have (somehow) burnt the IDE-USB chip.
11:52:05needleboyis it US or EU?
11:52:26needleboyhas he formatted it on the PC or from the iriver firmware?
11:52:58ashridahzhilik: i doubt he burned the usb-storage chip, that'd take a fairly broken pc, imho
11:53:15needleboyLet me explain, the iriver firmware is the one controlling the USB connection, not the PC. This means that if the iriver firmware won't be able to read the HD, then the PC won't be able to read it either...
11:53:23needleboyso my money's still on NTFS
11:53:28ashridahthe usb-storage chip couldn't care less about what filesystem is on the disk, but windows xp definently doesn't like formatting fat32 filesystems that're >32GB or so
11:53:40ashridahneedleboy: bullshit
11:53:56ashridahneedleboy: the usb-storage chip gets complete control
11:54:00ashridahwhen it's plugged into a pc
11:54:10needleboychip on the player?
11:54:13zhilikneedleboy: yes, but when you connect the PC. the USB-IDE chip comes in, not caring about the firmware.
11:54:25ashridahthe pc should *still* be able to see the device, but the volume may not have been assigned a drive letter, or may be getting hidden by another drive
11:54:53ashridahneedleboy: the iriver firmware can only say "usb-storage, you're in control" and go to sleep until there's no more usb connection
11:54:57ashridahit can't access the drive in this time.
11:55:02needleboyi'm not guessing this... someone on MR had the exact same problem, and he HAS formatted to NTFS.
11:55:08ashridahzhilik: which version of windows is this?
11:55:12needleboyafter he formatted back to FAT32 all was good...
11:55:25zhilikashridah: Don't know.
11:55:34ashridahneedleboy: i'd assume again, that the volume was never mounted in windows t hen. ntfs has some funky features.
11:55:46needleboythat might be it, then...
11:56:02needleboyzhilik, tell him to try another PC
11:56:04ashridahzhilik: okay, it's likely to be win2k or xp or something, so have him start the microsoft management console (run 'mmc' from the run menu)
11:56:18needleboywouldn't advice you to buy it, though, until you know exactly what the problem is
11:56:20ashridahneedleboy: that might not help if it's the ntfs volume doing it
11:56:39ashridahzhilik: then tell him to add the disk management snapin, and plug in the H300
11:56:40zhilikashridah: diskmgmt.msc -> assign leter to volume.
11:56:52ashridahthat's more or less it
11:56:59ashridahhopefully that'll make it visible in windows
11:57:09ashridahthen you can get a third party tool and reformat it as fat32
11:57:30ashridahsince winxp's own format definently won't do fat32 on such a large volume (but other tools can)
11:57:52ashridahi'm surprised that the H300 can't do this itself tho
11:58:01zhilikashridah: Thanks. That seems like it.
11:58:01ashridahbecause the H1xx had a format option added (which really repartitioned as well as formatted)
11:58:31zhilikashridah: And the firmware doesn't need any files on the hard drive?
11:58:35needleboyH300 can format by itself
11:58:39needleboyfrom the firmware
11:58:52needleboytell him to try and format from the firmware, if he can get it working at all...
11:59:00ashridahif it isn't visible in the disk manager, i'd look into the hardware management stuff from the my computer properties, and make sure the drive's being detected properly.
11:59:09needleboyi NEVER format my h300 from windows... never.
11:59:13ashridahmight just need disabling and reenabling or reinstalling the drivers on his system

12:28:43Membrillobut how many people with RB commit access commit to the ipod port?
12:29:19linuxstbOur CREDITS file is 154 people long - but they are not all developers, just people that have contributed in some way, such as language translations.

12:44:20linuxstbBut I'm assuming retailos can change the cpu freq without interrupting playback.
12:45:03linuxstbThere are also some timing-related register writes in wm8975_init()

13:31:58preglowsomething more around 2-3 is better
13:32:09preglowand the q value for the shelving filters should always be set to 0.707
13:32:13preglowso 7 for you
13:32:30preglowapart from that, it seems to be working nicely
13:32:42safetydanthe default Q value I had were 2 I thought
13:32:51preglowyes, yes it is...
13:33:13safetydanShould be higher precision?
13:33:19safetydanQ even
13:33:25preglowno, it should be enough
13:34:04safetydanSo I also need a global scale value as well.
13:34:41preglowi don't know where we should put that
13:34:43preglowinternally, that is
13:34:55safetydancan't reuse the replay gain one?
13:35:22preglowyeah, i guess we can, though we really should integrate it into one of the eq fitlers
13:35:31preglowbut no, the replaygain one will do for now
13:35:42Febs[19:42] <LinusN> webguest27: yes, i want it, but febs didn't update it
13:35:53FebsLinusN, do you know what this ^^ was about?
13:35:59preglowyou can update the filter coefs more often than just when pressing the button
13:37:46preglowother than that, it seems to work fine, good work
13:38:25safetydanI'll make those changes and try and have it more fleshed out sometime tonight

13:42:18kalmarkI would have a question concerning the mpio hd300 player....there were some talks about the on rockbox IRC, and a wiki entry, and people were really enthusiastic about it at that time...
13:42:46kalmarkbut there was no conclusion if t was worth the hassle, or could run rockbox
13:43:02B4gderfor a port to take off, it takes efforts and work from people with that hw
13:43:03preglowsomeone probably just hasn't joined us to do it yet
13:43:27B4gderafaik, no mpio owner has yet done the necessary grunt work
13:43:29kalmarkin the IRC log some guys said it had a similar hardware to the iriver h1xx, an the firmware was unencrypted and stuff like that :)
13:43:39preglow"similar" is not enough
13:43:46preglowwe need to know all details
13:43:59B4gderand even if it is identical, someone still would need to verify that
13:44:23kalmarkyeah okay, I'm completely fine with than and by no means do I ask because I think you should have done something by now :)

13:45:45preglowhow's the mistic crew responding to us doing an ipod port, btw? :P
13:45:53preglowi would have expected them to denounce us and do a fork
13:45:56B4gderkalmark: if you know of any decent mpio hd300 forums/mailing lists, you can start polling for people to gather around such an effort
13:45:56linuxstbI think they're trying to ignore it...
13:46:13linuxstb(whilst at the same time creating retailos WPS clones..)
13:46:34kalmarkB4dger, not a bad idea...I have been reading around recently, and basically everyone hates the stock FW :)
13:46:48B4gderkalmark: that seems to be a very common reaction
13:46:53B4gderon just about all players
13:47:04preglowexcept ipod, which has an excellent firmware

13:47:10kalmarkwell at least this one plays ogg vorbis by default
13:47:30linuxstbpreglow: Yes, I'm constantly surprised by the new things I find I can do with the Apple firmware...
13:47:56kalmarkwell I'll keep looking around then, maybe someone can help with this effort...

13:59:50LinusNno i don't
14:00:27preglowour chip blows up when i change the freq

14:01:36linuxstbDoes stopping and restarting playback change anything?
14:01:54preglowno idea

14:08:49preglowamiconn: that's why you select one that doesn't
14:09:04amiconnYes, a solid colour will do

14:13:30LinusNdo we really have to maintain that page?
14:13:31Rob2222LinusN: Well, my standard WPS is text only, too.
14:13:33CassandraAlthough maybe we should mark things that have gone in since the last release as 'new' or something.

15:02:25CassandraI'll have a poke later. Thanks.
15:02:59linuxstbYes, it's in drivers/pcf50605.c - the pcf50606 datasheet also describes the pcf50605.
15:03:25CassandraTa. I might look at implementing wake up timer later today.
15:03:25linuxstbSo we in fact have a datasheet for the RTC!

15:21:44ender`2min49sec vs 3min32sec
15:21:47preglowi just figured they _should_ be easy to read, but weren't
15:21:50amiconnImho it's the simplest solution
15:21:58CassandraI don't see how taring up the images is any easier than combining.
15:21:59peturpreglow: if you look at the graphics they make, combining bitmaps shouldn't be such a big deal for them...
15:22:04amiconnAnd no, it shouldn't be hard to compose these
15:22:07B4gderamiconn: because that still is trickier to make
15:22:08preglowamiconn: but ok, just explain a good solution to the resize problem
15:22:14preglowamiconn: and i'll give in
15:22:21B4gderCassandra: because we can support both
15:22:23amiconnIn fact it will be easier than dealing with dozens of tiny bitmaps
15:22:28preglowamiconn: no
15:22:37linuxstbamiconn: Are you suggesting one single combined bitmap, or a small number of combined bitmaps for each WPS?
15:22:39preglowamiconn: you have a big mess with lots of bitmaps in, and need to use coordinates in the wps
15:22:51preglowamiconn: that's not easier in my book
15:23:03amiconnI don't really see a problem
15:23:10amiconnResizing isn
15:23:11preglowamiconn: let's say you need to resize one of the bitmaps
15:23:24amiconn't difficult if there's enough left-over space
15:23:24preglowamiconn: you need to update _all_ coords in the wps, and shuffle around stuff in the bitmap
15:23:43preglowamiconn: doesn't sound very elegant to rely on empty space
15:23:44Cassandrathat is a point.
15:23:50amiconnOf course it will be if one goes for the tightest possible packing
15:24:03peturleave the gap open and put the new one at the back?
15:24:04preglowi thought you were the one who didn't like wasting space
15:24:04Cassandratar file still doens't solve the arbitrary limit on number of bitmaps problem.
15:24:05amiconn...but who says that you have to do that?
15:24:10linuxstbpreglow: That's the Rockbox spirit - the bmp is loaded into a fixed size buffer. Are you asking for malloc?
15:24:24linuxstbSo it doesn't matter if space is wasted in the bmp file.
15:24:25preglowlinuxstb: i mean disk space
15:24:29B4gderCassandra: true, but we could move away from a single-letter
15:24:43linuxstbpreglow: More diskspace will be saved due to the FAT32 cluster size.
15:24:51amiconnpreglow: One single bmp will still take way less space and processing power even if it has more than twice as much pixels as all the tiny bitmaps together
15:24:53preglowyes, but lots of it promptly wasted again
15:25:11B4gdera tar file will take even lesser space
15:25:21B4gdersince it requires no extra empty pixels
15:25:22preglowso ok, whe allocating our buffer, we then have to take into consideration that half of the bitmap will be empty space
15:25:24amiconnpreglow: On a H340, one cluster is 32KB
15:25:26linuxstbBut space isn't the issue - the WPS image data buffer is a fixed size.
15:25:44linuxstbSo as long as the bmp file fits in there, it's OK.
15:25:45preglowno, i'm with bagder on this one
15:25:45BHSPitLappyhello my people
15:25:54CassandraIt'd be nice if there was some way of knowing what the hard limit was on bitmaps though. At the moment, its a case of "if it crashes Rockbox you probably need to increase the buffer size"
15:25:59preglowno messy coords and big bitmaps where you need to waste space to even have it working
15:26:12B4gderand I suggest 'tar' just because we already have tools for adding and removing files in such archives
15:27:01CassandraMost of the people using Windows dont though, and they're the ones creating WPSes.

15:30:27CassandraPeople shouldn't have to download umpteen different pieces of random software just to get Rockbox to work the way they want.
15:30:43CassandraAnother reason to look forawrd to tagcache.
15:30:57preglowbut i don't think it's unreasonable to make a developer download something
15:31:01preglowand wps makers are developers
15:31:10linuxstbBut does anyone disagree with adding support for combined bitmaps? I think we should do that first, and then see what happens.
15:31:30preglowi think we should do combined bitmaps where it's natural, like for bitmaps with several states
15:31:34linuxstbIf we can reduce a WPS to 3 or 4 bitmaps, then I don't think we'll have much of a problem.
15:31:37preglowanything that involves coordinates i'm heavily againsty
15:31:49B4gderthe combined approach is not needed with my suggestion, that I favour
15:32:07linuxstbI also think wps authors will find combined bitmaps (to some extent) easier than having to edit a large number of tiny bmp files individually.

15:37:37LinusNotherwise the wps author would have to manually find out the coordinates for each element in the combined bitmap
15:37:50preglowwhich is fun
15:38:05peturagain, looking at the GFX thay make, that will be the least of their problems...
15:38:41*petur starts typing like preglow
15:38:51amiconnLinusN: The problem is that I don't like the old method (literally eats disk space and is slow as hell) nor would I like an extra layer like tar/zip/whatever
15:39:04amiconnYou would still have to decode each BMP individually
15:39:09B4gderbut how is a single big bmp _not_ an extra layer?
15:39:19preglowpetur: what, that was correct until you "corrected" it...
15:39:21amiconnNo. You simply load that BMP
15:39:27preglowahh, thay...
15:39:29preglowi don't even see it now
15:40:02amiconn(or maybe a couple if absolutely necessary. I don't really see the need, but if it has to be...)
15:40:02CassandraWe'd probably want to insist on packed wpses for inclusion into Rockbox though.
15:40:09B4gderamiconn: yes, but you waste space and things since the big bmp isn't used, only parts of it

15:43:38B4gderyeah, but that's a pretty big job
15:43:53preglowyes, but some people also wants to be able to edit the wps from within rockbox
15:43:58preglowwhich is only possible when it's plain text
15:44:08B4gderor a compiler that runs on target ;-)
15:44:10preglowi think a blob wps format would be nice enough
15:44:18Cassandrapreglow: They are weirdos and shouldn't be so silly. :P
15:44:28amiconnCassandra: That's one point were I accept the complexity (although I think a rewrite is due)
15:44:28preglowi asked about this the other day too
15:45:18preglowi say compared to adding fifty lines of code for something that would simplify the life of wps developers, that is pretty misplaced complexity
15:45:25preglowi can't imagine when i'd want to edit the wps on my unit
15:45:25amiconnAnother drawback of tar/zip/whatever is that there won't be plain BMP files anymore -> one extra step when changing the wps, and no way to view the individual bitmaps anymore
15:45:32CassandraLet's make everyone write WPSes in befunge!
15:45:56B4gderamiconn: since we'd support individual ones, you could just extract the ones you want
15:46:23amiconn(unless someone suggests that we should support tar files as virtual folders - bye bye KISS)
15:46:34B4gderthe tar'ing would mainly be for shipping/including and not while developing

15:47:16XavierGrWhy not split them?

15:47:29B4gderthere are sooooo many more out there
15:47:30XavierGrWPS is eye candy and user customization
15:47:53XavierGrthat's right
15:48:10B4gderI believe Rockbox should include a set of good WPSes
15:48:14XavierGrso we don't include any wps files on the builds and redirect the user to a mass wps database.
15:48:15B4gderor rather I think

16:08:51preglowCassandra: why, it is
16:09:13preglowtons of people think it is genuinely important
16:09:18amiconnCassandra: Imho the iPod sells so well because of the huge advertisement campaign
16:09:54Cassandraamiconn, you have to remember that Apple only got the money to do the campaign because the iPod sold so darn well.
16:09:57amiconnpreglow: I don't say wps is unnecessary, but bitmapped wps is
16:10:01BHSPitLappyeasy to operate interface

16:10:20preglowamiconn: a configurable wps _is_ unnecessary

16:11:02CassandraHell, I know that even I would rather have an MP3 player that looks like a Nano than one that looks like an Ondio.
16:11:11amiconnImho iPod is just about style. For a real music player, I would choose a different product
16:11:22preglowpeople value style

16:11:25preglowa lot
16:11:54amiconnI don't care about style, usability counts
16:11:57Cassandralinuxstb, that's true as far as it goes, but I really don't think it was Apple's marketting that sold the iPod.

16:13:44preglowstill, you can't deny the ipods look better than your run of the mill mp3 player
16:14:11Cassandralinuxstb, Microsoft doesn't need a marketting dept., except to stop what happened to IBM happening to them.
16:14:21Cassandra(And Google may well do it to them anyway.)
16:14:40amiconnSpeaking about Ondio vs. Nano - I would like a player that is as slim as the Nano, but with good scratch resistance (as the Ondio), and a larger display than the Nano.
16:14:42Cassandra(Simply by not being as shit as the competition (MS) )

17:00:12NightCatBackdrop loads now on my RB from /.rockbox/background.bmp on start :)
17:01:25amiconnHmm. That sounds like a good idea for 'set as backdrop'. Don't save the filename in the config, but rather copy the file to some fixed place+name
17:01:49NightCatAnybody knows how to add something to the config?

17:14:39NightCatRob2222: Building for DAP now...
17:14:42linuxstbamiconn: I was just planning on following the existing convention, and create a /.rockbox/backdrop/ folder where backdrop images would be stored (and store the filename in the config block).
17:15:08NightCatlinuxstb: Have you see what I've done?
17:15:11preglowcomplete with a file name size constraint?
17:15:12linuxstbThe only problem with your idea is how to implement a "clear backdrop image" option. Do we delete the background bitmap?
17:15:21 Quit Rondom ("I'm leaving on a jetplane, don't know when I'll be back again...")
17:15:39linuxstbpreglow: Yes, 20 characters excluding path and .bmp extension is the normal restriction.
17:15:41amiconnlinuxstb: No filename (or no file) == no backdrop, I'd think
17:15:42NightCatlinuxstb: Just do a black bitmap :)
17:15:54 Quit needleboy ()
17:15:59NightCatOr whaite...
17:16:18linuxstbNightCat: No. If the user wants a plain background, they shouldn't use bitmaps - it is slower to use bitmaps.
17:16:31LinusNwe would still want to be able to select a static color
17:17:02linuxstbLinusN: I agree. If the bitmap image pointer in the lcd driver is NULL, the static background colour is used.
17:17:08amiconnlinuxstb: Btw, what happens if the backdrop bitmap is smaller than the display resolution?
17:17:17linuxstbamiconn: It's rejected.
17:17:30linuxstbBut that could be improved by the backdrop bitmap loader.
17:18:11linuxstbI'm in the process of creating a backdrop.[ch] file, so we can have the loading done in a central function, rather than using read_bmp_file() directly.
17:18:21NightCatlinuxstb: I've just used your code in onplay to load the image on init...

17:20:09linuxstbSo what do people think the "set as backdrop" function should do? Set a filename in the config block (meaning the backdrops need to be in a certain directory), or copy to a fixed filename under .rockbox ?

17:20:51NightCatlinuxstb: I think it shoud be like the WPS...
17:21:11amiconnImho copy to a fixed filename is even more flexible. The original backdrop can be anywhere on disk, and could also be removed after setting it as backdrop
17:21:15NightCatWe can do just play a bmp file in constant folder makes it like backdrop.
17:21:53amiconnWe could even convert the backdrop to native and save that instead of a .bmp
17:21:53NightCatLike playing WPS file... or font...
17:22:11amiconnWould be something like bmp cache </joke>
17:22:48NightCatWe just could change bmp ext on backdropfiles to .bdf or something
17:22:48linuxstbI think I would prefer the WPS-like behaviour as well - so you can temporarily set a bitmap as the backdrop if it isn't in the .rockbox/backdrops/ directory.
17:23:19NightCatAnd load it like bmp.
17:23:34NightCatLike WPS-style will be good.

17:33:42NightCatlinuxstb: I mean all works very fasty...
17:33:55amiconnWould it make sense to change the draw mode for the inverse bar from DRMODE_COMPLEMENT to DRMODE_INVERSEVID
17:34:25amiconn? I.e. the bar would be drawn in foreground colour with the text using background,
17:34:33amiconninstead of complementing all the pixels?
17:34:58preglowyeah, i think so
17:35:09preglowthat'd be faster as well
17:35:24amiconnYes, no read-back from framebuffer involved

17:37:01NightCatYes it's good I think like that too.
17:37:24linuxstbThe default colours would then be light-blue writing on a black background. Which I think would work.

19:30:21imphasingYou have to reset it if you want to do another conditional instruction?
19:30:29preglowbut if the condition changes
19:30:42preglowyou can do as many conditional instructions as you want
19:30:47preglowbut they all act on the same condition
19:30:52imphasingTrue, but they would all act on that one condition
19:30:54LinusNthe cmp instruction sets several flags
19:31:37imphasingOh, so CMP #1, #2 would set the greater than flag?
19:31:48imphasingor something like that
19:32:02preglowone condition is a combination of flags
19:32:04LinusNyes, and clear the equal flag
19:32:47imphasingSo then you could do something like, MOVGT foo,bar
19:32:54imphasingand it would only MOV if the GT flag was set.
19:33:01imphasingI think I get it now.
19:33:11preglowbtw, cmp #1, #2 would set "less than"
19:33:27imphasingcompares the first to the last?
19:33:38preglowcmp x, y is just a "sub x, y" which sets the flags, and doesn't save the result
19:33:47preglowarm does it in backwards order
19:34:33imphasingMY conditional checking function just got dramatically simpler..
19:35:59amiconnpreglow: I keep thinking that this conditional move on arm will be useful for transparent bitmaps. Maybe we won't need the mask bitmap on arm?
19:36:17preglowamiconn: no, we most probably don't
19:36:39preglowamiconn: if a condition is not met, the instruction just takes one cycle
19:36:55amiconnOf course it requires someone to write the arm-optimised version
19:36:56 Quit lamed ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
19:37:08preglowwell, i'd be glad to do that
19:37:19*amiconn is going to test the new inverse bar

20:01:58imphasingNot sure what processor it was for though
20:02:48amiconnI noticed that the scroll thread text display was sub-optimal (unrelated to the fact that complement is slower than inversevid)

20:16:25NightCatWe can commit it...
20:16:34linuxstbamiconn suggested that instead of storing "permanent" backdrops in .rockbox/backdrops/ (which my patch does), we simply copy it to a constant file - e.g. /.rockbox/backdrop.bmp
20:16:40LinusNi don't like the way that patch does it
20:17:05LinusNlinuxstb: i prefer the setting method
20:17:27LinusNyour method, that is
20:17:30linuxstbLinusN: So do I - everything else in Rockbox works like that.
20:17:49linuxstbBut then again, it would be nice to be able to select an arbitrary image as a backdrop - regardless of where it is.
20:17:50LinusNit would be a pain to change the default backdrop otherwise

20:21:55amiconnOn H1x0, the remote stops scrolling at start-of-string when scrolling around, but the main display doesn't

22:57:05preglowyes, of course
22:57:16preglowLinusN: how would a graphical ui work for blind users?
22:57:25LinusNshould work fine
22:57:40LinusNwe'd just have to voice the different bands
22:57:44preglowthat's the only part about that i'm worried about, the current system forces you to make it usable for blind people as well
22:57:58preglowbut yeah
22:58:06preglowif we allow it in cvs, i'm sure that'll be in working order anyway
22:58:26ep0chall 5 bands on adds about 23% boost ratio for me
22:58:41preglowwhich file format?
22:58:51preglowyes, that's probably not too far off
22:59:20preglowafter all, it's five extra passes over the stereo data
23:00:03ep0chare two of the bands shelving filters?
23:00:10preglowthe first is low-shelving
23:00:13preglowand the last high-shelving
23:01:12preglowi'll see if i can think of a fast way to plot the eq amplitude response as well
23:01:49ep0chany idea if a shelving filter is more efficient than the other type?
23:01:56preglowefficient in what way?
23:02:08ep0chin the cpu usage way
23:02:10preglowall filters use the same filtering routine
23:02:13preglowso no
23:02:37preglowand the filtering routine cannot be easily optimised much further
23:02:47preglowit already does just one load and one store, which is the bare minimum
23:03:03preglowany progress on that front would have to come from the filter algorithm itself
23:03:42preglowi have tried implementing transposed direct form 2 in addition to the current direct form 1 implementation, and that ended up with one instruction more, and higher risk of overflow internally
23:03:50ep0chthink i'll boot into the dreaded iriver fw see eq effects it offered
23:04:10Bgerep0ch they are "static"
23:04:23Bgerthat is, u can choose "rock jazz" etc
23:04:33preglowand they're hardware based
23:04:36Bger+ normal (no eq), and SRS/WOW
23:05:01Bgerpreglow are these "rock jazz..." based on the UDA ?

23:19:37XavierGrAlso something strange. My player came with a battery pack. In the manual it doesn't say not tos use alkaline batteries of 1.5 volt.
23:19:45XavierGrbut 4 * 1.5 = 6 volts
23:19:55XavierGrisn't that harmfull to the player?
23:20:07preglowsan surely had a fun job in making this eq gui
23:20:22XavierGralso what about if the user puts the batteries the other way?
23:20:50Xerionthere will be diodes so it can't go the wrong way

23:23:07XavierGrH100 would burn with -5
23:23:15Rob2222XavierGr: Afaik the H300 is powered by the PCF, which can handle 10V AND the LX2201 battery charger can handly up to 7V
23:23:36XavierGrah okay then
23:24:01Rob2222They wouldnt sell this battery packs from iriver when it wouldnt be ok
