00:08:06youngcerealnot as hold
00:08:23Mikachuit's not handled with the other buttons
00:08:38BHSPitLappyI don't think it can be overridden
00:08:42imphasing_gmail won't send the rockboot, so I'm just sending you my bootloader.bin, and the rockbox.bin
00:08:53BHSPitLappybut the software can see when it's turned on and off
00:09:05Shadowarrior13Alrighty then...
00:09:09Shadowarrior13Wait, rockbox.bin?

00:10:08BHSPitLappykind of like iDoom?
00:12:43imphasing_that's just the bootloader binary
00:12:48imphasing_you have to extract your firmware

00:13:20Shadowarrior13Yeah, but I wasn't aware there was a roxkbox.bin.

00:38:55imphasing_Heh, the menus slow down a bit when it's playing music
00:39:17Sacroive just been to my mates, and i couldnt mount my mp3 player with latest firmware
00:40:24Shadowarrior13I love you.
00:40:26linuxstbDon't worry about your bootloader, I'm sure it's fine.
00:40:39linuxstbYou haven't tested it yet...
00:40:40allixdoes it work shadow?

00:44:55imphasing_I just bought a 5G, and it's niiiice
00:45:20Shadowarrior13Yeah, the f ile is still extracting.
00:45:40linuxstbThanks. And yes, Rockbox does have worse battery life than retailos.
00:45:52imphasing_Is it dramatically worse?

00:47:41NicoFRor nimbus-12 or 14
00:47:44markunProbably still on the small side
00:48:43youngcerealMikachu: all i find 4g ware the same to 3g
00:48:54Shadowarrior13Woooa cubey
00:49:04youngcerealMikachu: Nano standart codes other then 4g ??
00:49:17imphasing_Heh, it still says "iRiver RockBox" When I play audio
00:52:59Mikachuyoungcereal: it should be same as the 4g, but 4g in rockbox doesn't have code for handling the hold button
00:53:51youngcerealMikachu: i look to doo this i work at the moment on remote for 4g that ist near ;)
00:55:09linuxstbLCD now up to 52fps...
00:55:27imphasing_Did you figure out some of the chips instructions?
00:55:53linuxstbNo, I've just been experimenting with the existing driver.
00:56:09imphasing_So the broadcom chip isn't actually being used yet?
00:56:29Shadowarrior13And I'm not getting choppy playback.
00:56:34linuxstbI've no idea what's going on. I'm just changing things...

00:58:05allixthats cool
00:58:16allixif only i did not order a iaudio
00:58:34midkaylinuxstb, awesome.. congrats.. it's been doubled in one day! :) did you check in the 52fps code?
00:58:46linuxstbNo, I'm still doing more tests.
00:59:07midkayk, keep at it :) kickass work
00:59:15Shadowarrior13omgz bejewelled
01:00:48midkaylinuxstb, do you have any idea what sort of FPS you'd want to have it running very nicely (for example, at the speed of the nanos)? what do you expect is the highest you could reasonably get it?
01:03:07linuxstbHow does 107fps sound?
01:03:32Bagdersounds like a typo ;-)
01:03:39allixis it me or something but all the files are for windows users?
01:03:55linuxstbIt seems that the 14ms delay in the audio driver wasn't needed. I just removed it, and it still works perfectly.
01:04:11Bagderallix: what "all the files" are you talking about?
01:05:00allixi don;t have windwos
01:05:03imphasing_linuxstb: If I re-build rockbox, do I need to rebuild the bootloader too, or can I just unzip my zip file again?
01:05:04midkaylinuxstb, is 107 a guess/target, or...? :)
01:05:19linuxstbIt's what I've just achieved.
01:05:25midkayyou're kidding.

01:13:20linuxstbThere are two plugins you can try - "starfield" is modified to display a fps (33fps - it has calculations and screen drawing to do), and "test_fps" which just does updates of the LCD without changing what is drawn.
01:14:26linuxstbAh, seems I might have spoken a little soon....
01:15:01imphasing_getting 107.0 on test_fps
01:15:20imphasing_Wow, starfield looks nice!

01:21:43linuxstbMaybe I did speak to soon - the lcd updates don't seem to be 100% reliable...
01:21:56imphasing_It is faster than it was though
01:23:22linuxstbYes, it is. But the LCD isn't always being updated correctly - it seems to miss updates sometimes. But that's probably only when they are done in very quick succession (such as in test_fps), so maybe it won't be a problem.
01:24:01imphasing_It might be a good idea to limit how many frames it can show per second, and pause for a couple ms if it's going over, say, 50 fps.
01:24:13 Join XavierGr [0] (n=XavierGr@
01:24:20imphasing_That would make it so it wouldn't suck up all it could just to get 200fps as well
01:24:27imphasing_and give it some power to do other things
01:27:18NicoFRlinuxstb: would it be possible to have the sources to the test_fps and the fps-modified starfield plugins ?
01:28:26linuxstbI'll think I leave that 14ms delay in the code for now, but commit the change that brings the speed up to 52fps.

01:33:39linuxstbNo idea.
01:33:50midkaytrying out your 107fps build. _awesome_.
01:33:54linuxstbBut probably very fast - the lcd is tiny.
01:34:22midkayyeah, hm.
01:36:34midkaylinuxstb, the 107fps build is incredibly nice.. but it does seem a bit glitchy. mandelbrot draws weirdly, for one.
01:37:45midkayyeah, quite a few things seem pretty weird. bejeweled's little cursor boundingbox doesn't draw.. calculator doesn't display its keys until you roll over them - and then they appear garbled..
01:38:15linuxstbYes, that's what I noticed.
01:38:35midkayoh, alright.. i guess that's a by-product of some "optimizations"? :)
01:38:36linuxstbSo it seems 52fps will have to do for now.
01:38:49hyarionhuh? 52fps on... ipod video?
01:38:53hyarionor what?
01:39:08linuxstbYes - 52fps on my 5g.
01:39:16hyarionnice :D
01:39:29allixwhat formats can it play?
01:39:37linuxstbI did get 107fps, but it's a bit unstable....
01:39:50midkaya shame, 107 was delicious. well, i'll try the 52 version and hopefully it's still great. :) in any case it's awesome work on your part

02:47:58webguest91no I switched it back to the original firmware to fix a couple of video problems
02:48:00CassandraThe LCD?
02:48:17CassandraThat's a darn fast screen.
02:48:19linuxstbYes - but it's mainly the fact that audio is as good as the other ipods now.
02:48:30CassandraOh, kewl. What was up with it?
02:49:54linuxstbThe main problem was the 14ms delay at the end of every lcd_update(). Adding a yield() there meant that Rockbox could continue decoding audio during that time.
02:50:22linuxstbThe other changes were just optimisations - experimenting with making the lcd driver doing less, and see what still worked.
02:52:20Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: There's someone on the forums who seems to be having problems getting iPodpatcher to see his ipod. One of the messages he got is relating to "locking disk"?

03:06:26DJ_Dooms_DayI've also noticed that if you plug something into 'line out' it reduces the quality of audio a damn lot
03:07:41bandgeekndbnot using line out, although i wonder about that too

03:09:59bandgeekndbheadphones don't seem to be bad
03:11:39bandgeekndband now, using the same track i was listening to earlier today, the track sounds great
03:11:51bandgeekndbsounds no different from my CD player
03:12:08bandgeekndbmy ears must be revolting - not enough cleaning or something crazy
03:12:29***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
03:12:30bandgeekndbwhile i'm here though, what is the purpose of replaygain - it never makes a difference for me?
03:13:16Paul_The_NerdYou have to scan your tracks in advance with an external program
03:13:25Paul_The_NerdThere are many of them. Foobar2000 is popular among windows users.
03:13:45bandgeekndbwhat does replaygain end up doing - gain boost during playback?
03:14:05bandgeekndbor, instead of bothering you guys, is there a place i can read up?
03:14:07Paul_The_NerdIt's somewhat like normalizing a track, but will instead try to bring the apparently loudness of the track to 89db. It will create tags on the file telling the player how far to adjust that track
03:14:40imphasing_What db level does rockbox start playing at?
03:14:41bandgeekndbah, letting rockbox and the player do the work
03:14:49Paul_The_NerdIt creates an individual value per track, and an overall album value, so that if you listen using album settings tracks will seem louder and quieter relative to each other.
03:14:50imphasing_Before the volume gets decreased
03:15:09Paul_The_Nerdimphasing_: Depends on the file, doesn't it?
03:15:33imphasing_rockbox doesn't start out with say, 75db, and the volume level gets adjusted from there?
03:15:34Paul_The_Nerdbandgeekndb: Well, the scanning is the harder work, the gain value is just adjusted like the preamp, except it's read from a tag.
03:15:53bandgeekndbwell, thank you very much - i'm going to clean my ears and my earphones, see if I'm just going crazy from lack of sleep
03:16:52Paul_The_Nerdimphasing_: I don't really know that much about it, but 0db adjustment on all players is "line level" which means the file should be playing at whatever level it's recorded to be at. Some players will let you go up from there even, to as much as +12 on some archoses. My understanding of this *may* be incorrect though.
03:16:52 Quit bandgeekndb ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
03:17:12imphasing_Ah, ok.
03:17:29imphasing_so it adjusts from the file level, it doesn't adjust the level to be exactly some set level.
03:17:43Paul_The_NerdYeah, if I understand correctly.
03:17:47imphasing_-20db would be 20db minus the recording level I would guess..
03:18:23Paul_The_NerdThe recording level minus 20db, yes.
03:18:26Paul_The_NerdIf I understand correctly
03:20:44Paul_The_NerdIt's nice knowing that I listen at -35 on any player Rockbox supports. I like a unified scale. :)

04:28:48gantrixxare they compatible?
04:29:33midgey34no, they differ
04:29:39gantrixxit's a nice little device, but you can't plug the power cord into it directly without an adapter piece. who was the genius behind that?
04:30:08dpassen1And the USB 1.1 OTG port is on the main body of the player, but the 2.0 port for transfer is on the sub pack
04:30:14midgey34guess they were going for a small formfactor, honestly it bugs me to no ends
04:30:45midgey34that and the screen are all my brother ever grumbles about
04:31:01gantrixxI know, so I have to haul this sub pack around with me everywhere if I want to put a song on it or charge it
04:31:46gantrixxand what is the port just under the headphone jack?
04:32:02gantrixxand I can't find any place to buy a spare sub pack
04:32:42gantrixxit has 2 ports that you won't use 99% of the time and the ones that you use 100% of the time are only available through the sub pack
04:33:23gantrixxit's better than my MPIO HD300, but still not as good as the ipod −− but the ipod won't do ogg
04:33:51Paul_The_NerdYou are aware that Rockbox allows the iPod to play Ogg, no?
04:34:33gantrixxlast I checked it wasn't availble for the 5g ipods

04:37:02gantrixxwell, maybe I'll get an ipod then

04:38:21imphasing_It looks like the newest hawtness though
04:38:38Paul_The_Nerdgantrixx: There's not much to take screen shots of, since the interface itself is text based. The WPS screen is customizable but nobody's really made any 5G themes for it yet.

04:49:43jaebirdI believe so... min is -0.1
04:50:06Paul_The_NerdThen =0.65 should be the same as Q6.5

04:50:31Paul_The_NerdOooh, neat.
04:51:06ashridahcan even provide an irc bot to tell the channel whenever a commit occurs
04:51:07jaebirdwierd...why would they do that...i'm used to the q6 or q8 numbers, but gstreamers vorbisenc plugin is 0.xx
04:52:12Paul_The_NerdI really don't know, but I've seen 3 listed as 0.3 elsewhere too, so I'm thinking maybe there was a scale switch at some point in time?
04:52:13jaebirdWhats the latest of the 4g grayscale? I noticed a lot of hulabaloo around the 5g today!!
04:52:45jaebirdit is working good for me except a few LCD glitches still.
04:56:57Paul_The_NerdDid you say the LCD glitches occur in the sim as well, or just on the target?
04:57:44jaebirdthe LCD things I observe are on both the Sim and Target.
04:58:10jaebirdhowever there is another glitch that has to do with powering off...sometimes there is a horizontal line that stays on
04:58:34Paul_The_NerdWell, the latter just has to do with the fact that the LCD isn't cleared before it's powered off, possibly.
04:58:58jaebirdand when I first boot up the line stays visible for a few minutes before finally fading away
04:59:10Paul_The_NerdOh, that is odd.
04:59:47Paul_The_NerdIs there anything you can do that forces it to go away, by chance?
04:59:52jaebirdat first I thought it was a damaged screen, but the line appears in different places and they all eventually go away...AND it doesn't happen everytime :)
05:00:20jaebirdand only if it has been off for a little while...if i reboot right away it never happens.
05:01:12jaebirdi love rockbox, even with my weird ui issues...haven't had time to look at them, too busy listening to music :)
05:03:15jaebirdi was kinda curious how many 4g grayscale people are out there...i know we are a dying breed, especially with the 5g 52 fps stuff

05:32:54Paul_The_NerdActually, I guess that's two
05:33:10imphasing_godzirra: 52fps on the lcd
05:33:20imphasing_Actually, 107, but it's sketchy
05:33:51imphasing_That's what the latest linuxstb gave me, but it's not perfect.
05:34:03imphasing_He's been fiddling with the driver.
05:34:08CassandraDoesn't seem to have fixed the banding problem I'm having with 32bit images.
05:34:18Cassandra(Not that I expected it to, mind.)
05:34:22Cassandra24 bit.
05:34:32imphasing_I haven't tested anything with it really, just a fps monitor.
05:34:40imphasing_It palys mp3s though, which is better than retailos.
05:34:44CassandraI wish I could figure out a way to get the GIMP to generate using a 16 bit pallette.
05:34:54imphasing_I'm sure there's a way..
05:34:58imphasing_I just don't know it.
05:35:15Paul_The_NerdWhat conditions are these 107fps under?
05:35:21CassandraMaybe. Gimp seems to be 8 bit or 24 bit and nothing in between though.
05:35:33imphasing_It's just a plugin that monitors fps
05:35:35imphasing_with no real load
05:35:53*Cassandra doesn't really see the point. I mean humans can't see more than 30fps anyway.
05:35:54Paul_The_NerdI know last time I saw FPS talked about they were talking about a patched Starfield
05:36:13imphasing_I get 33fps on starfield
05:36:25JdGordonCassandra: thats not really true..
05:36:46imphasing_I can still see a flicker on a 60hz monitor, which is the same as 60fps
05:36:49JdGordonbut a dap doesnt really need huge fps anyway
05:36:56imphasing_it takes about 80hz before I'm satisfied
05:36:57Paul_The_Nerdimphasing_: Out of curiosity, if you change the speed to 0, and the stars off, how fast?
05:37:04CassandraHow'd you get starfield to show you FPS?
05:37:08imphasing_Paul_The_Nerd: Still 33fps./
05:37:10Paul_The_NerdCassandra: There's a patch for it.
05:37:16Paul_The_Nerdimphasing_: Nano is 112 on it like that.
05:37:43imphasing_Of course, the nano LCD isn't being emulated through a processor that isn't supposed to be doing that.
05:38:03Cassandraimphasing_, that's an entirely different phenomenon. The fact is 30fps will look perfectly smooth to the human eye.
05:38:14Paul_The_NerdI'm sure that once things are running properly the 5g will be showing some pretty high numbers.
05:38:22Cassandra(Flicker was also a CRT problem.)
05:38:43Paul_The_NerdCassandra: 30 fps will look smooth, but if you compare it to say, 75fps you *Can* still see a difference.
05:38:56imphasing_Cassandra: Depends on the context you're talking about 30fps in though. In something like a game, sure. But if you mean just a constant refresh rate of 30fps, it's entirely possible to see that.
05:39:33imphasing_But yeah, flicker plays a big part in the CRT noise you see.
05:40:32CassandraRight. Back to bed for me.

07:59:31B4gder"500 - Internal Server Error"
07:59:39lamedamiconn: I'm trying to make some greyscale bmps (for brickmania h1x0 actually). but the thing is, I'm not sure what greyscale color would come out as white/gray/black. how many grey color are there?
07:59:41amiconnDJ_Dooms_Day: I still plan to implement a 2-stage backlight for H3x0, allowing to set 2 different backlight brightness values.
07:59:47B4gderquote from the xml export file
08:00:36amiconnThe backlight would go to the higher brightness after button press, wait the 1st timeout, then go to the lower brightness, wait a 2nd timeout, then go off
08:01:09amiconnIt would be possible to set the 2nd timeout to 'On', and the 2nd brightness to 2 (lowest).
08:02:00amiconnlamed: As long as brickmania doesn't use the grayscale lib, there are just 2 grey levels: white / lightgrey / darkgrey / black
08:02:01Paul_The_Nerdlamed: Well, if it's not using the grayscale library, just the native grays, then there's only 4 total shades. Black, White, and two grays.
08:02:14Paul_The_NerdYeah, what he said.
08:03:47lamedTHANK YOU. I was actually doing a lot of trial and error to get to the same conclusion... just for my information, what do I have to do in order to use the greyscale library: just add it to the #include d files and it works?
08:04:37amiconnYou would have to include gray.h, then convert all places which use lcd_* functions to use gray_* functions instead
08:04:42Bg3ramiconn in fact this is very good idea ;)

08:05:42amiconnPlease also note that the grayscale lib bitmap format is different from the native bitmaps
08:06:03Mikachui noticed that when i tried to make the plasma plugin work it may be difficult to integrate the bitmaps into the bitmap build system
08:06:50lamedamiconn: afaik color lcds uses LCD_ functions. is that because both color & 4 greyscale color lcds are 'native'?
08:07:08amiconnlcd_* just means the core functions
08:07:23amiconnThe core functions support the native lcd depth
08:08:29amiconnThe grayscale lib goes beyond the native lcd features, offering up to 33 shades on b&w LCDs (archos bitmap targets) and 4-grey LCDs (iriver H1x0)
08:09:02 Join ender` [0] (i=ychat@
08:09:52amiconnMikachu: The grayscale library bitmaps are in fact simple: Since there is no fixed 'native' format the grayscale lib can use (since it offers *variable* depths from 2 to 33 shades), it uses canonical bitmaps:
08:10:14amiconnLine-by-line, 1 byte/pixel, 0..255
08:10:35Mikachuand what does lcd_mono_bitmap_etc want?
08:11:15amiconnmono bitmaps are (currently) identical on all platforms, but for plasma etc you probably want to use lcd_bitmap()
08:11:56lamedthanks amiconn, but i'm still having trouble with finding, probably the black-grey shade. I guess it somewhere ~ 60 ?
08:12:18amiconnYou could use xlcd_gray_bitmap() from the lcd extension plugin lib, but then the effect would end up in pure greyscale
08:12:25amiconnlamed: 0 / 85 / 170 / 255
08:12:48Mikachuokay, thanks. gotta go to school now
08:12:58lamedthank you!
08:13:03amiconnMikachu: If you want it in colour, you need to use lcd_bitmap(), and do the conversion yourself
08:13:11lamedis it already in the wiki?
08:13:18amiconnI would use a lookup table for this
08:14:12amiconnlamed: Not afaik. Maybe there should be a wiki page documenting bmp2rb, which could include such information
08:15:18lamed<amiconn> I would use a lookup table for this - was that refering to me? i don't know what's a lookup table :/
08:15:26amiconn..but the levels are easy to compute. Just equal distances from 0...255
08:15:42amiconnlamed: No, that was directed to Mikachu
08:15:50lamed(that's why i thought it's around 60)
08:16:07lamedamiconn: remember the screen scroll patch i've mailed you about?

08:16:39lamedasking how is it possible to bind a long right click if it's already binded on the ondio's?
08:17:06amiconnI must have overlooked that mail :(
08:17:32amiconnHmm, that's indeed a problem
08:18:12amiconnThe bad thing about button combos is that they block easy one-handed operation
08:18:27amiconn(Not all, but most of them)
08:19:06lamedyeah. but i don't see any other bind for ondios. long click scrolls nicely on my h120.
08:19:08amiconnThe screen scroll does work on Ondio as it is now - if the user is fast enough
08:19:41lamedwhat is he racing?
08:20:00amiconnYou need to press Mode and Right within a short time window
08:20:22amiconnIf you press Mode first and wait too long to press Right, you trigger the menu instead
08:20:29amiconn(menu is Long Mode)
08:20:45lamedand let me guess. a short mode takes you to the wps
08:21:14amiconnIf you press Right first and wait too long to press Mode, you trigger the context menu instead
08:21:34amiconnShort Mode doesn't matter here
08:21:58amiconnLeftscroll is less problematic, for 2 reasons
08:22:35amiconn(1) Long Left has no function, so if you press Left first, there's no unwanted function that could be triggered
08:23:04amiconn(2) Left+Mode can be pressed together with the thumb
08:23:57amiconnYes, short Mode is 'go to wps' / 'resume'
08:24:43amiconnI guess we have to live with the fact that some functions are not available, or tricky to reach, on Ondio
08:24:55amiconnThere are only 6 buttons...

08:30:24lamedthen maybe we should change the function to at least work for the most players as a short left/right click. It's true to say it's not comfortable as it is now. I have a working version but i'm not to excited on finishing the work and then being have to bug everyone out until someone excepts it ... :P
08:31:22Bg3ramiconn any idea which target should have the biggest jpeg.rock (filesize-wise)?
08:31:46lamedand like the code is now, it will make us have to put some #ifdef s around some plugins, because it adds a _pre button definition to the menu system.
08:32:06lamednm :/

08:42:33amiconnThe h1x0 and archos jpeg.rock is slightly larger because of the grayscale lib
08:42:57B4gderyes, the sort plugin might be a better comparison for plain code size I guess
08:43:13amiconnpreglow: Any news regarding jpeg colour?
08:43:33B4gderand it is sized 1590 - 1206 - 1128 on the archs
08:44:21Paul_The_NerdThat's a pretty considerable difference

09:05:57lamedso basicly, even if there is a color image, making a greyscale build won't pick up on any problem. hmmm

09:07:49lamedneedleboy: the lag thing on while scrolling lists is pretty old. I've overheard some talking about it being associated with low refreshing rates lcds, but i think it's because of unicode being a bit slower and it has side effects

09:15:01Paul_The_NerdHrm, actually it's replacing files now. I *swear* it didn't a month ago, because I couldn't figure out how to replace a lost file other than browsing the CVS repository via the site and downloading it.
09:15:11Paul_The_NerdI probably just somehow did something horribly stupid.
09:15:17lamedamiconn: h120, if you hold up/down on a list, after a while sound will stop. list will continue scroll after you leave the button, and scroll speed is significantly slower.

10:54:12amiconnZoide777: ...but if the list was actually scrolled, we need to update the whole lcd anyway
10:54:19linuxstbZoide777: If you're looking to fix the 4g grayscale problems, then the place to look is lcd-2bit-horiz.c
10:54:41linuxstbIt's the drawing of graphics into the LCD framebuffer that is buggy - not the low-level driver in lcd-ipod.c
10:54:52 Quit perldiver (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
10:55:00Zoide777linuxstb: thanks. that's actually what I'm interested in, though I have no expertise in this. still wanted to have a look at the source though
10:55:11amiconnlinuxstb: 4g grayscale is still buggy?
10:55:32linuxstbYes - you can see for yourself in a sim.
10:56:30*amiconn should try that
10:56:33Zoide777linuxstb: doesn't lcd-ipod.c also have issues, though? I saw that lcd_blit() has "todo" stuff in it. (thought I have no idea what blit does)
10:56:43linuxstbI haven't heard from slimx for a couple of weeks, so I don't know if he's done anything on it.
10:57:10linuxstblcd_blit() isn't used.
10:57:46amiconnlcd_blit() would be necessary for grayscale lib support
10:58:20Zoide777so right now 4g grayscale is literally 4g black/white?
10:58:23amiconnHowever, it would also need working user timer support, which is the bigger problem
10:58:35amiconnNope. 4g can use the 4 native greylevels
10:59:11Zoide777so what is grayscale lib for, converting non-native images to the 4 levels?
10:59:28linuxstbgrayscale lib is Rockbox's secret weapon...
10:59:52amiconnThe grayscale lib allows showing up to 33 levels of grey on LCDs which only support b&w or 4 grey levels natively
11:00:01Zoide777!?!?!?!!?!?!?!!!!! temporal dithering, i.e. flicking through a number of b&w images very fast
11:00:16B4gderyes, like that
11:00:20Zoide777so you could even have antialiasing?
11:00:28B4gderbut toggling colors instead of ? and ! ;-)
11:00:49Zoide777oh, i guess antialiasing wouldnt be worth the flickering though
11:00:49amiconnIt's only used for plugins, since it puts quite some load on the CPU
11:01:09amiconn...but it e.g. allows watching JPEG images

11:03:29Zoide777I was also looking at button.c ... For the clickwheel scrolling, instead of just checking for deltas of 4 and -4, could there be an extra one for, say 20 and -20 so that we can create two extra "buttons" PAGE_UP and PAGE_DN for accelerated scrolling in 4g's?
11:03:38 Join imphasing [0] (
11:05:07Zoide777(e.g. in the file list, list.c, there's PG_UP and PG_DN for when you hold down on the h-120, making the list zoom up & down more quickly)
11:05:31amiconnlinuxstb: Ouch!
11:06:47amiconnI thought lcd-2bit-horz wouldn't be a problem, since it's just a transposed lcd-h100
11:07:54amiconnThink I'll work on it a bit, since it will also profit from transposed mono bitmapa...
11:08:40[IDC]DragonCassandra: do u read?
11:10:33amiconnTransposing the native bitmaps shouldn't be a problem, just need an additional output format for bmp2rb
11:11:10amiconnIn case someone will ever pick up the gmini port again - the gmini 2xx use 4 bit horizontal packing...
11:11:23linuxstbThe problem is that they are not all in external bmp files yet - I'm sure there are a few plugins with native 2bpp bitmaps hardcoded.
11:12:01lamedamiconn: i've changed rb->lcd_bitmap to rb->gray_bitmap, but that's not the way to do it i see
11:12:45***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
11:14:10linuxstbZoide777: I've been looking at how the Apple firmware handles the clickwheel, and it seems to skip items in the list when you scroll faster than a certain speed. It seems to have scroll events that move 1 item, 4 items, and probably more, depending on the speed.
11:14:11amiconnNo, of course not
11:14:24amiconnThe gray_* functions aren't part of the core
11:15:04linuxstbI think that just moving one item or moving a whole page isn't a smooth enough acceleration. We probably need 3 or 4 different scroll events in each direction to take account of it.
11:17:08lamedlinuxstb: what about skipping an increasing number of files in every event?
11:17:33Zoide777linuxstb: ok, but where would these speeds be evaluated? Could it be done in button.c by adding more if's to the delta checks?
11:18:32linuxstbZoide777: Yes, I'm thinking it would be in the button driver, which would send different scroll events depending on the speed.
11:19:41linuxstblamed: IIUC, I don't think that's the right effect - if you turn the wheel at a constant speed, it should scroll at a constant speed.
11:21:52Zoide777What I've tried was to modify list.c. I keep a scrollCounter, and then in do_button I have if's to check if the counter has exceeded +/- 80. So if that's true, LIST_NEXT and LIST_PREV behave just like LIST_PGDN and LIST_PGDN, moving a whole page as opposed to a line. It works reasonably well, but seems horrible inneficient and slows down every periodically
11:22:13Zoide777(so I thought maybe the button.c approach would be better)

15:50:30ripnetukwhich is why im here... do the recent commits to increase video framerate mean we are nearer video playback in rockbox? or is it just for the rvf files?
15:50:52preglowand everything
15:51:02LinusNwell put
15:51:25preglowwe have no video stuff going on
15:51:27ripnetukwill we need to decode the mp4 vids in software, or does the broadcom chip handle decoding / help to handle decoding
15:51:42preglowand rvf files are impractical for anything but archoses
15:51:58Mikachui want color jpeg first (just saying)
15:52:01preglowit usually handles decoding, yes, but we have no info on it
15:53:20linuxstbpreglow: What's your opinion on a "Start original firmware" menu option?
15:53:57preglowdoes it even run?
15:54:02preglowi thought memory mapping tripped it over
15:54:25linuxstbI would implement it by writing a cookie to IRAM, and then rebooting. The bootloader would read the cookie and boot retailos.
15:54:39preglowyou could also just map memory back, of course
15:54:46preglowbut yeah, whatever, i'm sure people will use it
15:55:38linuxstbI can also see H300 owners liking it - if they want video playback, or even h1x0 owners with wma collections... But it somehow doesn't feel right. :(
15:56:02Mikachui just want to use it to enter usb mode easier

16:01:47Philip_0729:) sit further away ;)
16:03:04linuxstbamiconn: Yes. The actual hardware value is 0..127, but I think everything under 64 is invisible, so I kept the Archos scale of 0..63 and add 64 to it in set_contrast.
16:03:05Mikachuhm, the apple os reboots automatically if you write to the boot sector thing...
16:03:14Mikachuso if i write there i don't have to hold menu+play 5 seconds
16:03:26amiconnlinuxstb: Ah.
16:03:27linuxstbMikachu: Yes, I believe a write to the first 32MB causes an automatic reboot.

21:18:45Zoide777maybe I'm imagining it and it always was that way
21:18:46linuxstbZoide777: Do you mean it's faster now?
21:18:55amiconnZoide777: Scrollbar at the left (for longer file listings) should look correctly now, even if you scroll further down. No artefacts should be visible,
21:19:22amiconnand the 4-grey rockbox logo should be shown correctly at boot, and when you call Info->Verison
21:20:08Zoide777amiconn: the logo shows correctly. however, the scrollbar gets cut off at the bottom if the status bar is turned on
21:20:16amiconnThe drawing speed for mono bitmaps shouldn't have changed much (that includes drawing text), but it might be a bit faster
21:20:33Zoide777linuxstb: I'm not sure if the refresh is faster or slower, it *seems* like it's harder to read the text as it scrolls by

21:25:51amiconnSome of them just need more thinking about the best way to apply them.
21:26:00linuxstbNow we need the greyscale lib.
21:26:17amiconnThe biggest optimisation will be switching monochrome formats, but that needs infrastructural work all over

21:28:50Fitzsimmonsalthough they did mention that it could be out of date
21:29:00Fitzsimmonsin that case amiconn, how do I set a bookmark? Or resume one for that matter
21:29:42amiconnThere is one minor restriction on all swcodec targets: Bookmarks can't go *into* non-seekable formats the same way as you can't seek within such files manually
21:29:50Paul_The_NerdFitzsimmons: In that chart, the left column is what rockbox can do, the rightmost one is what the *original* software did.
21:30:05preglowi think we should add a CAN_SEEK flag to dsp_configure

21:31:47FitzsimmonsI guess this is a just an interface/lack of documentation problem

21:32:15Zoide777amiconn: There's still something wrong with the bottom of the screen. If the status bar is on (for example, I just opened the engineer2 theme), then a strip at the bottom always stays the same
21:32:48amiconnWhich font do you use?
21:32:52Paul_The_NerdFitzsimmons: I honestly don't know either, but I recall that there were instructions in the manual

21:34:27Fitzsimmonsmarkun: aha, thanks, I didn't even know that menu existed
21:34:31Zoide777seems to happen w/ every font
21:34:37Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: Well, when I tried it, it didn't like the * wildcard at all.
21:34:49linuxstbAre you in cygwin?
21:35:25Paul_The_NerdFitzsimmons: <−−- A little out of date, I believe, but it'll still be helpful
21:35:35Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: I was using the windows version at the command prompt.
21:35:36linuxstbIn cygwin, the bash shell should expand the * and give metaflac the individual filenames.
21:35:36MikachuPaul_The_Nerd: for a in *;do metaflac −−whatever $a; done
21:35:43Zoide777amiconn: though it's interesting that upon selecting a new font, the screen displays correctly for a moment (still in the old font), but then it shows the new font on all of the screen except for the bottom strip, which did not refresh (still shows the old font)

21:37:10linuxstbpreglow: I would guess aiff is similar - it was based on wav.c
21:37:40preglowi'm brushing up wav.c a bit now
21:37:49preglowthink i'll just bump the iram usage a bit
21:38:13linuxstbBTW, we should use the extra 32KB of IRAM in the 5g and nano
21:38:28preglowlinuxstb: yeah, but i'll be hairy...
21:38:28amiconnlinuxstb: Your new backdrop handling in plugin.c doesn't work correctly. Just changing the backdrop and calling lcd_update() doesn't remove the backdrop
21:38:33preglowfor when we do support audio dithering again, do you think it would matter if we applied dithering even if the source material is too low precision to benefit?
21:39:00preglowi'd love to just not have the codecs have to specify their "real" output precision
21:39:13amiconnThis means plugins which don't lcd_clear_display() themselves start drawing text (with plain background), but the rest of the screen still shows the old backdrop
21:39:35Zoide777amiconn: you mean that's what's happening w/ the 4g gray
21:40:23linuxstbamiconn: Good spot. Shall I add an lcd_clear_display() or will you.
21:40:49amiconnThere already is an lcd_clear_display() in an earlier place
21:41:14amiconnImho this could be moved down instead. No need to clear the display if the plugin refuses to run
21:41:31linuxstbBut that first clear gives the user feedback that something is happening.
21:41:46amiconnOh, and of course the remote lcd should be cleared as well

22:14:53safetydanWhat's going to be the fastest way to copy a file in Rockbox?
22:19:01linuxstbsafetydan: Good question. I'm not sure what the ideal buffer size would be - or where you would get that buffer from.
22:19:52safetydanAt the moment I think I'll just use my filename buffer
22:19:54preglowarggh, aiff.c also inherited the two level indent

22:20:56Paprica[IDC]Dragon, what is the meaning of "testbed"?
22:22:05linuxstbsafetydan: You can probably have a 512 byte buffer on the stack. But you should try and find a larger buffer - so you do multiple-sector reads and writes.
22:22:22linuxstb(512 bytes = 1 sector)
22:23:03linuxstbYou should be able to use the plugin buffer - but I don't know if any other parts of Rockbox do that at the moment.
22:23:15safetydanthat could be interesting
22:23:20hardeepif this is done in the gui context then you can always use the plugin buffer

22:23:38safetydanShould always be in the GUI so I don't see why it wouldn't work
22:24:14linuxstb32KB could be a good size to start with - the size of the Archos plugin buffer.

23:14:11warewolfI havn't updated my rockbox on my H300 in ages.
23:14:22warewolfI'm sure there are some sexy new features/bugfixes I don't have yet :)
23:14:27warewolfwhere can I get a full changelog?
23:15:15[IDC]Dragoncolor jpeg decoder works in all my test cases
23:15:26warewolfare we playing movies on h3xx yet?
23:15:37preglow[IDC]Dragon: commit!
23:15:56Bagderhey, the return of the missing comitter! ;-)
23:16:06[IDC]Dragonsomebody needs to do a color space converter for the target
23:16:23[IDC]DragonI'm working on my ticket
23:16:27Mikachuaren't there some general functions for that
23:17:47*preglow prods/kicks amiconn
23:17:58safetydan if someone wants to try cut/copy/paste
23:18:09amiconn[IDC]Dragon: Did you retain greyscale only decoding for the greyscale targets?
23:18:46[IDC]Dragonit's a second decoding function
23:19:08[IDC]DragonI'm looking for the proper #ifdef to surround it
23:19:19amiconn#ifdef HAVE_LCD_COLOR
23:19:40amiconnIs the decoding that much different?
23:19:42[IDC]Dragonis that true color for all?
23:19:56amiconnSo far yes
23:20:01elinenbesafetydan: looks nice... loading it up in a few.
23:20:07Paprica[IDC]Dragon, do you have a h300 rock for it?
23:20:09amiconnWe have RGB565 and RGB565 byte-swapped

23:20:22LinusNah, finally i can autodetect the remote control type on the h300
23:20:35warewolfLinusN: what'd you have to do?

23:20:56[IDC]DragonPaprica: no, only Archos
23:21:04LinusNADCIN1 reads different voltages for the different remotes
23:21:08[IDC]Dragon(else I woudn't ask so stupid)
23:21:14peturdisassembly seems to be pretty usefull ;)
23:21:15muesli__LinusN thats awesome!
23:21:16preglowLinusN: woot!
23:21:22amiconn[IDC]Dragon: I would have expected that some parts of the decoder could just be #ifdef HAVE_LCD_COLOR
23:21:31Kensirso...does anyone know why rockbox seems to be getting the 5g LCD working so fast
23:21:36LinusNtook me quite some dissassembling to find that out
23:21:37KensirI was just curious how
23:22:01BagderKensir: a curious and inventive linuxstb :-)
23:22:11[IDC]Dragonamiconn: only jpeg_decode() has a variant, all the rest is the same
23:22:27Kensiri was thinking they may have overcome the Broadcom chip obstacle
23:22:32warewolfany updates to the bootloader for h3xx recently? Like did the lcd-backlight before lcd-init get fixed yet?
23:22:42amiconnWhat's the output format? Is the yuv data interleaved, or separate arrays?
23:22:45BagderKensir: it doesn't seem to be that much of an obstacle
23:22:54[IDC]DragonI didn't want to do additinal if's in there
23:23:07[IDC]Dragonhence the 2nd implementation
23:23:27Kensirreally? From what i've understood its been difficult to figure out the instruction set or something
23:23:36[IDC]Dragonbut it's possible to merge it

23:25:18warewolfdaymn I'm behind
23:25:24linuxstbKensir: We're still using the broadcom chip like a black box - but it seems a much more useful black box than we first thought.
23:25:37Kensiro, Ok
23:25:44Kensirsounds good, keep up the good work!
23:25:47linuxstbFor normal Rockbox use, we can now just ignore it.
23:25:57Kensirthats good
23:26:16peturwarewolf: wait until you discover backdrops and other gui goodies :)

23:26:30warewolfpetur: awesome.
23:27:29amiconn[IDC]Dragon: It seems that my Ondio SP has developed the "hot LTC3440" disease
23:27:40[IDC]Dragonamiconn: the output is 3 different planes
23:27:56[IDC]Dragonthat can be developed?
23:27:56amiconn(unless this is a reversible effect of powering from USB only w/o batteries inserted)
