#rockbox log for 2006-09-07

00:00:07linuxstbAn issue with a specific plugin, or something else?
00:00:36Bagdera plugin
00:00:51deeowhy, is there a patent on jewel games
00:01:14*preglow loves legal threats
00:01:17*linuxstb wonders who patented dice
00:01:21Bagderdeeo: if you ask them, sure
00:01:38deeowow, then MysticBread is in trouble...
00:01:49deeool wonderbread is probably far into that lawsuit, though.
00:01:52*dionoea wonders if minesweeper tiles are patented
00:02:14deeoSolitaire Corp. USA
00:02:41dionoeasolitaire graphics aren't copied from anywhere ... and the game is *old*, older than any PC :)
00:03:21markundeeo: the game is not patented, but they though we used their graphics and of course they are the copyright holders of that
00:03:57Bagderthey claimed it was "100% identical"
00:04:09Bagderwe evildoers at ""
00:04:32markunThey should luck us all up
00:04:37markunlock even
00:04:56dionoeaif it's minesweeper ... they are 100% identical (except the scaled versions)
00:05:01*tucoz is curious
00:05:06*markun too
00:05:07*dionoea prepares to hide "This page is parked free"
00:05:26*bluebrother gets curious too
00:05:55tucozsomeone said A, and now we are waiting eagerly for B
00:06:14Bagderit'll come, don't you worry
00:06:41*linuxstb worries if it's one of his plugins...
00:07:04dionoeabrickmania ? :)
00:07:36markun"please stop using our patented gapless playback algorithm"
00:07:43tucoztetris perhaps. they have threatend people before
00:07:52dionoeais that patented ?
00:08:06tucozi think so
00:08:14dionoeaweird ...
00:09:03*linuxstb thinks we should stop giving any lawyers reading this channel ideas...
00:09:44bluebrotherhmm, what about Febs? Wasn't he a lawyer?, official site maintained by The Tetris Company (from wikipedia)
00:09:50*dan_a runs out to patent the cube plugin
00:10:10dionoeadan_a: :)
00:10:16tucozi want to work there. cool to be an employee at The Tetris Company
00:10:28tucozwonder what they do
00:10:35*bluebrother thinks of patenting the reuse of tar for theme files
00:10:39dionoeathey try to beat high scores
00:10:49linuxstbtucoz: Send legal threats all day...
00:10:49amiconnmemset16 is declared void*, not void
00:10:59BagderPP things
00:11:01tucozlinuxstb: probably
00:11:16*Bagder sends out a secret mail to secret people
00:11:46*dionoea hopes that secret mail can be read in the secret archives
00:12:14dan_adionoea: And is secret cached in secret Google?
00:12:27dionoeamight be :)
00:12:33linuxstbThat's secret.

00:14:26XavierGrSo are we "normal humans" allowed to know what the legal threat is about? Which specific part of Rockbox?
00:14:39Bagderthis secret mail was not about that
00:14:44XavierGrah okay
00:15:27XavierGrBut I am weird who is legal threating Rockbox once again.....

00:18:08 Part deeo ("Konversation terminated!")
00:18:19Arathishaving problems with encoding files from avi to m2v.
00:18:34Arathisanybody out there with experience?
00:20:09ArathisI'm running Ubuntu Dapper. The problem exists with both VLC and mencoder. it seems codecs missing, but I only can find libavcodec-dev in my repositories and ffmpeg is install already :(
00:20:20linuxstbamiconn: ?
00:20:37amiconn[23:37:47] <amiconn> linuxstb: Wanna try sudoku with more saturated colours? Imho it does look better than the first version, at least on H300
00:20:46 Quit bluebrother ("back next day ...")
00:20:52linuxstbI replied to that (I hope)... I liked it.
00:21:13linuxstbSorry, I didn't reply... Yes, I'll try a new version.
00:22:28XavierGrlinuxstb: about sudoku, have you ever tried to start the solver when the board is completely or nearly empty?
00:22:41linuxstbArathis: What format is your source AVI file?
00:22:56linuxstbCan you play the file normally in either vlc or mplayer?
00:23:30XavierGrlast time I did that (1 month ago) my H300 crashed with the stack overflow message
00:24:01XavierGris there a recursive function in the solver?
00:24:06linuxstbI remember that bug being reported a long time ago, but thought it was fixed.
00:24:08Arathislinuxstb: ISO MPEG-4 (ffmpeg). recorded with mencoder script from my tv card and edited with avidemux but without any codec changes
00:24:46 Part tucoz
00:24:56linuxstbArathis: Can mplayer and vlc play it OK?
00:24:56dionoeaArathis: wrong number of fps for mpeg2 i guess
00:24:59 Quit carini ("Chatzilla 0.9.75 [Firefox]")
00:25:45Arathislinuxstb: yes they can
00:26:14dionoeaArathis: try adding fps=25 in VLC's transcode block
00:26:56Arathiserrors are:
00:26:58ArathisVLC media player 0.8.4 Janus
00:26:58Arathis[00000319] ffmpeg encoder error: cannot open encoder
00:26:58Arathis[00000272] stream_out_transcode private error: cannot find encoder
00:26:58DBUGEnqueued KICK Arathis
00:26:58Arathis[00000336] access_output_udp private error: failed to open a connection (udp)
00:27:24linuxstbI've never used vlc to encode. What does mencoder say?
00:27:43dionoeaArathis: if you add -vvv to command line you'll most likely see something about a wrong number of frames per second
00:27:50dionoeathat's why you need to change it
00:28:06Arathislinuxstb: the whole output?
00:28:31linuxstbYou could pastebin the whole output. Or is there anything obvious?
00:29:06dionoeaArathis: did you read what i wrote about fps ? (or should i stop trying ? :p )
00:29:09linuxstbAlso, as dionoea has been saying what's the fps of your AVI file? mplayer should state it when it plays the file.
00:30:16linuxstbBut ffmpeg supports encoding non-standard framerates in MPEG-2 files, so that may not be the problem unless it's a very strange framerate.
00:30:16Arathis29 fps
00:30:27dionoea29 or 29.97 ?
00:30:28linuxstbThat's a very strange framerate...
00:30:40Arathisalthough I thought my recording script had 25. maybe avidemux made it 29
00:30:55amiconnpreglow: Hmm, it says memset16 is BUGGY with your version (Offset=1, Length=32). Going to analyse the whole line...
00:32:01dionoea29.97 is valid for mpeg2
00:32:24Arathis29.97 fps. nautilus info isn't that accurate ..
00:32:52linuxstbamiconn: I'm undecided about colours in Sudoku. I think I like them....
00:33:20dionoeaArathis: anyways, try forcing the frame rate (in VLC you just add ,fps=25 in transcode) and it should work
00:33:26dionoeagood night
00:33:56 Quit BHSPitMonkey (Remote closed the connection)
00:34:25linuxstbArathis: Yes, framerate is your problem - "[mpeg2video @ 0x86b9608]MPEG1/2 does not support 2997/100 fps"
00:34:52Arathislinuxstb: how can I adjust this in mencoder?
00:35:03linuxstbIt seems like your encoder isn't storing the framerate accurately - it should be 30000/1001 for NTSC - 29.97002997....
00:36:06preglowlinuxstb: does mpegplayer have good frame limiting now?
00:36:11linuxstbArathis: I'm not sure of the best way - you don't want to resample the video frames, just change the headers to correctly say 29.97.
00:36:27linuxstbpreglow: I think it works OK.
00:36:35preglowlinuxstb: what about frame skipping?
00:37:15linuxstbThat works, but could be improved. It doesn't skip decoding of the frame, just the display, and can get stuck never displaying frames if the decoding is too slow.
00:38:19preglowyou can't skip decoding the frame
00:38:33preglowit'll break the motion estimation
00:38:43preglowyou can only skip whole i-frame p-frame sequences
00:38:53linuxstbArathis: You could just try -ofps 30000/1001
00:39:10amiconnpreglow: Iiuc it should be possible to skip b frames
00:39:47amiconn...and as soon as you have to skip all b frames between 2 p frames, you could start skipping p frames as well
00:39:49linuxstbBut skipping entire GOPs is probably the best approach if it gets a long way behind.
00:40:08Arathisdionoea: vlc works now btw. thanks a lot
00:40:54 Join Kohlrabi [0] (
00:41:09preglowamiconn: i actually don't really remember how b frames work
00:41:14preglowisn't it some kind of bidirection prediction?
00:41:22 Quit _FireFly_ ("Leaving")
00:42:27amiconnB frames are 'bothway interpolated' frames, based on the previous and next p or i frame
00:43:19preglowhow does iriver/cowon handle frame skipping?
00:43:22amiconnThe importan point is that they're always based on the prev+next p or i frame, not on other b frames
00:43:54amiconnNo idea... I never used the of video features
00:44:29Arathislinuxstb: 30000/1001 works. and just 25 works too :)
00:44:29amiconnI think they don't skip at all - the conversion tool probably makes sure the file can be decoded without frame skipping
00:44:50Arathisthanks again both of you linuxstb and dionoea for your help
00:45:03linuxstbArathis: If I was you I would stick with 30000/1001 - you don't want to change the framerate if you can avoid it.

00:45:50LittleWookiecan anyone help me
00:46:21LittleWookiehow can i change between rockbox and the ipod-firmware
00:46:32LittleWookiei can't find it

00:46:40markunLittleWookie: did you find the FAQ?
00:47:13LittleWookiei read in the forum and there it said i should read the manual
00:47:21LittleWookiebut good idea i look
00:47:23linuxstbArathis: That will hopefully just correct the fps in the header, but not actually change the content - your header says 29.97fps, but MPEG-2 requires the NTSC standard 30000/1001 (29.97002997...)
00:47:43Arathisbtw: is RVF out of date and mpeg2 up to date?
00:48:11LittleWookiemuch much thanks
00:48:58linuxstbArathis: RVF is Rockbox's own format for mono LCDs. It will probably be ported to the newer Rockbox devices with greyscale LCDs.
00:49:53Arathislinuxstb: I see. so no color RVF, but mpeg2, right?
00:50:34linuxstbRVF is uncompressed, so it would get silly on the larger colour LCDs.
00:50:59linuxstbBut for small, mono or greyscale LCDs, I think it's a good choice.

00:52:50preglowdoes clock switching work on h10 now?
00:53:33amiconnpreglow: I found the problem: your memset16() doesn't handle len==0 when the destination address isn't 32bit aligned
00:53:57amiconnIt sets one word where it should set none
00:53:59preglowamiconn: then hooray! commit! :)
00:54:23amiconnI don't have a fix yet... need to understand the instruction flow first
00:55:00preglowi'll take a look
00:55:18amiconnParameters are passed in r0 thru r3 on arm?
00:55:20preglow32 bit aligned, btw? it only checks for 16 bit alignment
00:55:23preglowamiconn: yes
00:55:53amiconnIt doesn't need to check for 16bit alignment, that's guaranteed for short*
00:56:34amiconnBut both memset() and memset() need to align first for using 32bit writes in the main loop
00:56:51preglowi still need to check if it's 16 bit aligned
00:56:55CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
00:56:55*linuxstb hopes earHertz returns to publish his ARM memcpy
00:56:55preglowsince i want to burst 32 bit words
00:56:56amiconnmemset16() aligns unconditionally, without checking 'len' first
00:57:17amiconnBut that's 32bit alignment
00:57:38preglowi guess so
00:57:58preglowbut yeah
00:58:08preglowi see that i write a halfword no matter what if i'm not aligned
00:58:10amiconnAnd you directly tst r0, #2 without checking r2 first
00:58:26amiconnIn the memset case, you do
00:58:39amiconn(and use a weird placement of the alignment code)
00:58:48preglowthat's how the linux code was
00:58:51preglowi just kept it as it was
00:59:05preglowi also think it's the placement that gives the fewest branch instructions
00:59:17amiconnNo, not overall
01:00:03amiconnIt makes one branch not taken if dst is already aligned, at the price of doing one additional branch when it's unaligned
01:00:24preglowthen feel free to fix, heh
01:00:32preglowi don't really care how it looks
01:00:36 Quit bbroke ("Chatzilla 0.9.75 [Firefox]")

01:02:13Arathisand now I'll test all encoded videos on my player
01:03:09*amiconn wonders why the test plugin doesn't stop at the point of error and wait for a button press as intended :/
01:03:53preglowyes, that did annoy me :)
01:04:03amiconnIt works on archos and iriver

01:13:14Arathislinuxstb: do you know who is working on the mpegplayer? especialy on sound of course? just to know whos name to look for on updates ;)
01:15:12preglowArathis: he is
01:15:25Arathispreglow: thanks
01:15:36linuxstbI've started working on sound, but it's not working yet, and the first commit to CVS will probably just play a separate .mp3 file, rather than a multiplexed file. A couple of other people are working on optimising the video decoding to get higher framerates.
01:15:52amiconnpreglow: Another detail I wonder about is why memset returns with mov pc, lr while memset16 returns with bx lr
01:17:36Arathisbtw: are there any c64 and/or dos emulators (like dosbox or scummv) beeing ported for rockbox? at least c64 game should run on almost every rockbox device I think
01:18:46preglowamiconn: probably because the latter is more my work than former is

03:26:56Paul_The_NerdYou mean the files you modified aren't modified by any other patches?
03:27:10*JdGordon gone
03:27:20Davide-NYCI have two patches, but they modify different files.
03:27:35Davide-NYC(guys, help me with the jargon if I get too crazed)
03:30:32Davide-NYCthis is the correct syntax for a recursive diff, correct? "cvs diff -R -u > bla.patch"
03:30:53Paul_The_NerdIsn't -R "remove"?
03:31:03Paul_The_NerdIt's been a little while since I tinkered with cvs diff.
03:31:30Davide-NYCI don;t think so. I'm all in the help system.
03:31:53Paul_The_NerdI've always created my patches simply cvs diff -u > blah.patch, if I recall
03:32:25TrueJournalsI'm looking at the man and it says "diff -uN"
03:32:31Davide-NYCwhat if you mess with multiple files?
03:32:58Paul_The_NerdThat should diff all the files in subfolders against their CVS matches.
03:33:07Paul_The_NerdAnd output the results of all of that into blah.patch
03:33:58Paul_The_NerdAlso, I was thinking patch -R, I believe
03:34:03*Paul_The_Nerd is a weeeee bit out of it tonight
03:37:00Davide-NYCIn fact the file "apps/plugins/SOURCES" must have changed so much that when I tried to remove my "no fun" patch it didn;t quite complete.
03:37:21Davide-NYCI found remnant traces of my 'no fun' changes in my 'icons' patch
03:37:29Davide-NYC*after* I had reversed it.

03:39:27Paul_The_NerdUsually if I know a file doesn't have any modifications I want to keep, I just delete the file and let CVS redownload it.
03:40:59Davide-NYCwill do. I might actually just force a whole new source tree.

03:42:34Davide-NYChow bad are undeclared variables?
03:42:48Davide-NYCjust using up space or could they cause more serious rpoblems.
03:44:01Paul_The_NerdDo you mean unused variables?
03:47:19midkayno problems, just useless space (codewise only i think) and the annoying warning :)
03:47:43midkayi'm betting the compiler doesn't even bother including it if it sees that it's unused.. it just lets you know that you can take it out of the code.
03:48:54Paul_The_NerdWell, he said "undeclared" which is a bit different. ;)

04:18:06midkayin fact i don't even see the variables used anywhere else there. you can get rid of that call, since they aren't even used by anything else..
04:18:26midkayyou're just filling them in with some crap and not touching them, may as well just get rid of the entire line :)
04:19:06Davide-NYCI tried getting rid of that block of code and it showed the volume icon and the bitmapped samplerate which is incorrect for the Archos targets

04:19:20Davide-NYCyou mean just the one line?

04:28:32midkayso you can just remove the declaration of it.. right on that line, should be.
04:29:02Davide-NYCno, I muckedup the logic, because I need that.
04:29:39Davide-NYCcan you check the code for a sec? I'm currently getting bitmaps for samplerate on the archos sim. I should be getting systemfont.
04:29:56Davide-NYCOn SWCODEC targets I want bitmaps/.
04:30:11Davide-NYCfor bot encoding/bitrate and ssamplerate
04:30:34Davide-NYCOn MAS targets I was sysfont
04:31:02midkaywhich code?
04:31:06midkaysame pastebin?
04:31:19Davide-NYChold on, you don;t have enough code
04:31:24midkaysure :)
04:33:44Davide-NYCand my comment is incomplete, it should say: For MAS targets both encoder/bitrate and samplerate should be displayed in the statusbar as sysfont. For SWCODEC targets bitmaps should be displayed instead.
04:34:07Davide-NYCline 650ish
04:35:36midkayhuh... that looks right..
04:35:59Davide-NYCI'm going to take a stab at it. I have an idea

04:45:36Davide-NYCin the CVS right now there is this: snprintf(buffer, sizeof(buffer), "%s", sample_rate[freq]);
04:46:06midkayoh, so you don't want like "khz" to follow?
04:46:29midkayjust a sec then.. that simplifies it a lot.

04:48:08Davide-NYCcheck out my horrid snippet of code

04:48:35midkayif that defines where it ought to go...
04:48:39midkaythat goes after the snprintf.
04:48:41midkayalso.. hm.
04:48:46midkaymove the #if up a bit. wait.

05:01:34Davide-NYCwe would only have to do that if there was a third type of codec right?

05:02:16Paul_The_NerdI'm kinda astonished there's not a third type yet

05:03:36Paul_The_NerdAs far as I know.
05:03:50Davide-NYCI don;t have an archos, so I got no clue.
05:03:55midkaydo vbr? it plays vbr files..

05:04:44Davide-NYCshould i clean up other people's syntax?
05:04:55Davide-NYCI mean whitespce/indenting/whatever
05:05:05Davide-NYCor is that uncool?
05:05:48Davide-NYCwhat if the 3if is inside another #if
05:06:08Davide-NYCstillno indent?
05:06:51Paul_The_NerdThings that start with # are preprocessor directives. You put them all the way to the left, because they aren't so much code as instructions to a program that reads through the code in advance and sorta rearranges it before you start compiling.
05:07:19Paul_The_NerdThe normal if(blah) in the code, those statements are in the code no matter what. The #if stuff actually gets removed before compiling if it's not true.
05:07:52Davide-NYCso the compile takes less time!
05:08:03Paul_The_NerdAnd the file that comes out of it is smaller.

05:09:03Davide-NYCoh nevermind. Suggest a good book
05:09:54Paul_The_NerdIf there's a #if, it's the kind that gets removed. If it's if without the # (the kinds of ifs you indent after the {s for) then it stays in the code.
05:10:30Paul_The_NerdI really don't know a good book.

05:12:08Davide-NYCthat sounds more my speed. the dietel book == pages: 1536
05:12:45midkayyeah, c for dummies was quite short.. although there's a volume 2 which i never read.

07:00:03Davide-NYCmidkay: you ready fot the last little query?
07:00:10midkayyeah? :)
07:00:27Davide-NYChaha, I have a possibly errant bit of code
07:00:48Davide-NYCundeclared sample_rate
07:00:51midkaylet's see it :) brb..
07:01:00midkayhm? just declare it if necessary..
07:01:08midkaycan you paste, what line does it error out on?
07:01:41Davide-NYCwhat does this line do exactly? snprintf(buffer, sizeof(buffer), "%s", sample_rate[audio_get_spdif_sample_rate()]);
07:02:23Davide-NYCI think I just have to move the declaration out of the #ifdef
07:02:57midkaysnprintf puts among other things, a variable into a string.. so it.. takes the sample rate - audio_get_blalgallbalba and uses it to decide waht sample_rate to use..
07:03:04midkayand then dumps the result into buffer.
07:08:07***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
07:20:42Davide-NYCI am mad proud.
07:22:16jhMikeSDavide-NYC: Man I got changes coming to that won't be able to use a canned array of strings to display sample rates.
07:22:58Davide-NYCyou wann just merge this?
07:23:07Davide-NYCI mean with your changes?
07:23:23Davide-NYCIt's not that much for someone that knows what they are doing

07:28:37jhMikeSYou should just format the frequency with snprintf
07:30:05jhMikeSI can whip something up and pastebin it
07:31:29jhMikeSDavide-NYC: you want it to display kHz?
07:31:50jhMikeSwith trailing zeros removed from the fraction?
07:32:00Davide-NYCgifs and patcvh
07:34:55Davide-NYCI think it should be scrutinized by people that actually know what they are doing, fixed (if necessary) and included in CVS. I think this looks more elegant than bitmap on one side of the play_state icon and sysfont onthe other.
07:35:15 Quit ghode|afk (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
07:35:21jhMikeSA formatter can ignore the fractional part
07:35:32jhMikeSand the units part
07:35:47Davide-NYCthat's not what I was getting at.
07:36:07Davide-NYCMmmm's CVS commit fixes all of the functional issues
07:36:12jhMikeSI'm not sure what you're getting at...I see a lot of bitmaps
07:36:21Davide-NYCnow you do
07:36:45jhMikeSNot gonna work on SWCODEC
07:37:20jhMikeSThere will be more MP3 sample rates than that and the rec_quality thing is history.
07:37:29jhMikeSExcept for archos of course
07:37:59jhMikeSaudio_set_recording_options will take a structure pointer for it's settings since this makes the differences easier to handle
07:38:56jhMikeSrec_init_recording_options will initialize the structure with the global settings for easy use. It's practically always called with the global settings anyway.
07:39:00Davide-NYCcool, how are the menus going to lay out?
07:39:11Davide-NYC(I'mmore of a user than a coder
07:39:39jhMikeSYou'll have Format, Channels, and Frequency in the recording menu
07:40:10jhMikeSAnd then Encoder Settings sub menu with settings specific to that codec
07:40:50 Quit D_C_ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
07:40:50jhMikeSEncoder settings will be saved in cfg files (this is the direction things are going)
07:41:30jhMikeSThe contents of Frequency will depend on your encoder choice
07:42:32jhMikeSMP3 only supports 48000,44100,32000 and the hw atm 11025,22050, if you have mp3 chosen, your only freq option will be 44100 since that's one they share
07:42:49jhMikeSWAV and WAVPACK can do all of them.
07:43:23Davide-NYCeventually it'll get crazy with ogg and speex and flac etc? Or the plan is to keep it simple?
07:43:36jhMikeSBUT! If you're you're using spdif, there won't be any frequency option other than "Source Sample Rate" because the freq is determined by the device connected to the input
07:43:44Davide-NYCof course
07:44:00jhMikeSThat's why encoder sub menus will keep it that way
07:44:23jhMikeSPick format...pick how you want it encoded
07:44:58Davide-NYCso it'll be like a dynamic folder structure
07:45:01jhMikeSNot all encoders share the same settings of course
07:45:29jhMikeSkinda...but always under one Recording Menu item...
07:45:43jhMikeSFrequency and Channels will remain in the same place
07:46:10Davide-NYChow can freq not be under enc since freq is enc dependant?
07:46:14jhMikeSQuality though...gone...that's really only for the mas codec on archos
07:46:35jhMikeSIt's a common option to any encoder
07:46:56Davide-NYCdon;t the values change depending/
07:48:05Davide-NYCyou said: "your only freq option will be 44100 since that's one they share" so I assumed freq would be under enc and change depending on what enc was chosen
07:48:09jhMikeSyes...the closest to what the previous setting will be selected automatically. I had thought about moving those two into the encoder settings...but something says it's not the right feel to things.
07:49:35jhMikeSI'd rather set 44100 can not have to go setting that on every format change...try it out...changing it to what you're saying wouldn't be too difficult anyway.
07:49:48jhMikeSBesides frequency depends on source and not just format
07:49:58Davide-NYConly for spidf
07:50:42Davide-NYCon the OF (iriver) there was a neat menu overlay
07:50:55jhMikeSIf most recording is done at 44100 do you want to go change it with every encoder selection?
07:50:57Davide-NYCreally clean implementation
07:51:08Davide-NYCno way
07:51:24jhMikeSI think viewport are gonna come at some point then popup menus will be possible as well as dialogue boxes
07:51:38Davide-NYCI see, that's not possible yet.
07:52:11*Davide-NYC must remember to mention the OF when viewports come along
07:52:35jhMikeSI'm looking to make the code rather easily adaptable to various changes
07:53:34jhMikeSamiconn said he is pondering the viewports but hasn't got it totally worked out
07:53:49Davide-NYCthis is a fantastic project.
07:54:05Davide-NYCI gotta sleep. If you see Mmmm, tell him to chack my patch.
07:54:16jhMikeSI'd love popup menus for the file options (Delete, Open with..., etc.)

10:38:04tucozlinuxstb: yes of course. but it would be fun to at least participate in some ways on that port.
10:38:29linuxstbI'm just saying it's probably the most difficult port so far in terms of lack of available information.
10:38:47tucozah, it's another PP.
10:39:00Bagderand a new PP
10:39:07Bagderwithout ATA etc
10:40:29linuxstbAnd more things than usual are built into the PP5024. At least for the ipods, we have some common (and documented) chips in addition to the PP.

10:48:45Bagderand if they truly are used for that Preface tech, I'd say they have some new fine income flying in

10:56:09Bagderbut all targets have guess works
10:56:21Bagderjust a varying amount
10:57:00webguest79And PP5024 will have about the most.
10:57:20Bagderwhy would it have more than the other PP chips in the long run?
10:57:56Bagderand by that I mean loooong
10:58:27webguest79More integrated components (I consider all RE'd stuff to be a bit of guesswork).
10:58:49Bagderbut the existing PP chips have been RE'd from the ground up too
10:59:17Bagderbut I guess it doesn't matter much
10:59:23Bagderif it works, it works
10:59:56preglowso the pp5024 differs a bit from 5022 and co?
10:59:59webguest79Yes, but does it e.g. save as much power as it could?
11:00:07antil33ti really need to get around to making my own themes
11:00:37Bagderpreglow: yeps, seems bit different at some aspects at least
11:00:38webguest79With e.g. wolfson codec you can seen the power states in the documentation. With PP5024 you are limited to what you can guess based on some RE work.
11:01:02BagderPP power states in the wolfson docs?
11:01:17webguest79No, power states of the codec.
11:01:37webguest79If the codec is closed, you'll have to RE that too.
11:01:52markunwebguest79: you make it sound as if we don't want PP documentation..
11:01:53Bagderand btw, RE does give you a lot more than "guesses" in many cases
11:03:43webguest79markun: No, I just fear that PP based ports will not reach their full potential due to the lack of docs.
11:04:06markunYes, that's possible
11:04:15markunbut not much to do about that
11:04:31BagderI hope for docs leaking out at some point
11:06:55webguest79Yeah, and in the meantime everybody just has to chip in and start RE'ing the code :-)
11:07:08LinusNunfortunately, i believe not even the DAP manufacturers receive PP docs on the hardware/register level
11:07:16preglownot impossible

15:03:05Arathislinuxstb_: is it a known bug that when playing a video that doesn't fit exactly to the screen (a 160x120 video on a H10 160x128 screen for me) the last line is streched to the bottom of the screen?
15:04:53amiconn160x120 is not a supported resoltion for mpeg video
15:05:02amiconnWidth and height must be integer multiples of 16
15:06:29daurnimatorand 4/3
15:08:17Arathis160x120 is 4/3

15:08:33amiconn120 is not an integer multiple of 16
15:08:38Arathisi know
15:08:44amiconndaurnimator: 4:3 is not a requirement
15:09:31Arathisbut which would be a good resolution for a 160x128 screen and 4/3?
15:10:05amiconnJust use 160x128
15:10:18Bagder160x128 is even 16 and 4:3
15:10:26Arathisbut than it would be streched alittle
15:10:37Bagdernot if the original is 4:3
15:10:52Arathis160x128 isnt 4/3
15:10:53daurnimatorBagder: 160x128 isn't 4:3

15:11:10*Bagder goes to stand in the corner
15:11:13daurnimator160x120 is though
15:11:21bluebrotherwhy don't you just add a 8px black border?
15:11:28Arathis144x108 would fit
15:11:36bluebrotherif you actually would see the stretch ...
15:12:12daurnimatori love my screen
15:12:17amiconnYou have 3 options: (1) live with the stretching. (2) Add black vertical bars at the top & bottom (4 px each). (3) Scale the video up a little bit, and cut the left & right edges
15:12:21Arathisbluebrother: how can I do this? can I edit the mencoder line for ancoding to m2v to do that?
15:12:24bluebrothermaybe adding 4px at the top and 4 at the bottom ...
15:12:41daurnimatorits not anything
15:12:43amiconnAhem, horizontal bars of course
15:12:46bluebrotherArathis, I have no idea how to do this with mencoder or vlc but I'm sure it is possible

19:11:08mirak_hem the height
19:11:24mirak_the with (x) will auto adjust and try to preserve the screen ratio

21:06:34*amiconn wonders what's more time consuming: a simple scheduler with very little overhead, but the threads checking themselves whether they should go to sleep again, or a complex kernel for just avoiding that
21:07:22*amiconn once had a test plugin that measured threading round-trip, i.e. how many scheduling rounds per second were performed
21:07:57Slasherihmm, test plugin would be nice for that
21:08:27***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
21:08:28amiconnI needed that to find performance problems associated with the peakmeter
21:09:02amiconnIirc I got around 600 rounds (i.e. several thousand thread switches) per second - on archos
21:09:17 Join lee-qid [0] (
21:10:06Slasheriand now it's also easier to debug other problems too. For example if some thread consumes all cpu time, because threads have now 4 different states: running, sleeping, blocked and blocked with timeout (in scheduler this is treat similar with sleeping)

21:22:00 Join theli_ua [0] (
21:23:44amiconnmirak_: Very simple. The flags used afterwards refer to _unsigned_ comparison, so a negative value is the same as a very high positive value
21:24:05sm00thI can't format my nano, fdisk it, or anything at this point
21:24:25amiconnThe next test that separates between <0 and >255 then uses the flags associated with signed comparison
21:24:33sm00thI think I accidntally went into some device mode (select+left) and clicked on reset
21:25:02sm00thnow I don't have any bootloader it looks like, and no parititions
21:25:09amiconnThat's what makes this sequence efficient - the flags set by cmp.l are used for 2 different purposes

21:30:41mirak_amiconn: I don't see how it works
21:31:12amiconnCheck each individual instruction, what flags it sets and what flags it evaluates
21:31:24amiconnYou can be sure it works 100%
21:31:37mirak_I don't see how it can set it to -127
21:32:02amiconnCLIP clips to 0..255
21:32:14mirak_they say the output can be between -384 and 384
21:33:05mirak_the output is always unsigned ?
21:33:11mirak_I mean always positive
21:34:03 Join fleischen [0] (
21:34:22amiconnThe idct output can be way outside the 0..255 range - if the input data is damaged
21:34:40amiconnFor valid input data, it can be slightly out of range, due to roundoff errors etc

21:35:02fleischenwhich bootloader do i need for my h10?
21:35:08mirak_amiconn: I want to get rid of the asm function for some testings, but the output is green
21:35:33mirak_If replace CPU_COLDFIRE by something else it doesn't work
21:35:52mirak_I am trying to fall back to how it was before this
21:36:41amiconnThat's why it needs clipping - if the idct produces e.g. 256 instead of 255, without proper clipping this would map to 0. Result: e.g. black pixels in a white area. Clipping limits to 255, so it stays white
21:37:11Arathisfleischen: depends on which player you have: 5/6gb or 20gb
21:37:23amiconnYou can't just change one single place and expect it to work - there are several places which work to gether in the C version of CLIP()
21:37:43amiconnIt's basically a huge table lookup, which needs to be initialised properly
21:38:21mirak_if(value > 255) return 255;
21:38:21mirak_ return value;
21:38:29mirak_I replaced the asm part with the above code
21:38:40mirak_but it doesn't work either

21:39:45amiconnelse return value;

21:40:18amiconnif ((unsigned)value <= 255) return value;

21:44:44Arathiswhich link?
21:44:56mirak_amiconn: when I use the asm functions for the idct, the I frame is decoded fine, you can see it when you pause the video. but after that first frame is displayed, some balck or white dots appears at the bottom up corner of each 8x8 blocks on the screen, then image gets worse, image after image, because that error spreads.
21:45:12fleischenthe wiki says 'Go to and download the zip file for your model (either 20GB or 5/6GB, it doesn't matter if it is UMS or MTP)'
21:45:12Terinjokeshey, is it possible to set up the nano so that i can listen to the same songs on both applefw and rockbox?

21:46:51amiconnBut I can say that the clipping is definitely not the problem
21:46:55mirak_but not both asm

22:12:20sm00thI've been asking all day ;)
22:12:32ep0ch_what were you doing to get the error?
22:12:42Paul_The_NerdYou still haven't given me your actual question...
22:12:46sm00thI don't seem to have a bootloader on my ipod anymore
22:12:55sm00thhere's what happened
22:13:03mirak_so will you give it a look soon ? I am going to watch a movie
22:13:31sm00thI *think* the causse of my problems started when I held select+left and clicked on reset
22:13:41sm00thsince then, I don't seem to have my bootloader or any partitions
22:13:52Paul_The_NerdHave you actually researched what that function does?
22:14:03sm00thI can't "see" the drive in windows under disk management
22:14:14sm00thand I can't see the drive when I use fdisk in linux, either
22:14:41sm00thno, I haven't researched it. I didn't intend to even be in that menu. I just clicked it on accident trying to leave

22:15:05Paul_The_NerdWell, usually the first thing one should do is ask the question "What did I just do" and attempt to find an answer.
22:15:17sm00ththat's what I've been trying to do
22:15:29Paul_The_NerdFor example, a quick google search revealed to me that the "Reset" option in the diagnostic menu is actually just a test to see if your iPod can reset.
22:15:42sm00ththen it's irrelevent

22:16:44Paul_The_NerdAnyway, what have you tried to fix it?
22:16:50sm00thlike I said, that's just when the problem started. I didn't say it was because I did that. the issue is that I have CRC err

22:17:11Paul_The_Nerdsm00th: Why did you search the Rockbox forums for an error with the Apple firmware?
22:17:20Terinjokesi had it for a while, but suddenly all the songs disappeared from the applefw
22:17:22sm00thI'm not using apple's firmware
22:17:31Paul_The_NerdThe diagnostic mode is part of theirs.
22:18:03Paul_The_NerdTerinjokes: Okay, if you had it before, why were you asking if it was possible? What did you do immediately before the change?
22:18:04sm00thjesus christ, sometimes people in here are dense AND rude. I can understand one or the other, lol
22:18:20Paul_The_Nerdsm00th: What did I say that was "dense?"
22:19:07sm00thwell, first of all, I never attributed the problem I'm having with clicking on "reset" but you feel the need to talk down to me because I didnt google that one function
22:19:31Paul_The_Nerd"I *think* the causse of my problems started when I held select+left and clicked on reset"
22:19:44Paul_The_NerdThe use of the word "cause" there strongly implies that you attribute causation to that action.
22:20:10Paul_The_NerdIf you hadn't used the word cause, then of course, I wouldn't think that you thought it *caused* the action, only that it *started* then
22:20:13sm00thno, it just happened coincendtally at that time. Do you know the difference between correclation and causation?
22:20:19Paul_The_NerdYOU used the word cause
22:20:21Paul_The_NerdThat was a quote from you
22:20:24Paul_The_NerdScroll up
22:20:30Terinjokeswhile right after i installed rockbox i checked the applefw, they were all there, then using rockbox for a day, they are gone in teh applefw
22:20:32sm00thobviously you don't know the difference

22:20:50sm00thbecause I didn't say the cause was due to me clicking on it

22:21:45sm00thok, so get off your kick. yeah, your e-pen is larger than mine.
22:22:00Paul_The_NerdAll I'm saying is that you're applying blame for me over the fact that you can't seem to properly express your ideas.
22:22:05Paul_The_NerdI never once said it was the cause of your problems
22:22:06sm00thnow, on to the fact that I can't access the ipod with fdisk
22:22:09Paul_The_NerdI tried to establish clearly that it wasn't
22:22:20sm00thyeah, ok cool. good on you.
22:22:27Paul_The_NerdAnd because of that you call me dense, for actually reading what you said, instead of what you meant.
22:22:31sm00thnow move on and either help or keep arguing in circles
22:22:35Paul_The_NerdI'm sorry, but is it "dense" that I can't read minds?
22:22:44sm00thno, that's not even what I was referring to when I said dense
22:22:52sm00thyeah, it's dense that you can't move on
22:23:10sm00ththat you seem stuck on this one portion of what I was describing
22:23:18Paul_The_NerdThat's not dense, that's stubborn.
22:23:33Paul_The_NerdI'm irritated that when I actually tried to offer you help, you chose to attack me instead of ignoring my tone and dealing with it.
22:23:35sm00thin general, when I go to a help forum, and ask for help, I explain all the steps I took before I experienced the problem
22:23:38Terinjokesok, removed all songs from ipod using itunes, going to send over an album, lets see what happens
22:23:48Paul_The_Nerdsm00th: The thing is, this is a "Rockbox" channel, not a "iPod Help Forum"
22:23:48sm00thregardless of whether it's related
22:24:15Paul_The_Nerdsm00th: Yes, and if you attempt to attribute cause to a step, my first action will be to try to determine if you're right. Which is what I did.
22:24:22sm00thno, what you did was attack me personally for not googling one particular step when I was simply describing a series of steps I had done and now I have an error. common helpdesk =technique
22:24:24Paul_The_NerdYou said you thought step X caused your problems, I explained what Step X did.
22:24:46sm00thlol, that was just my first sentence. and now here we are ten minutes later and I haven't even finished explaining what I did
22:24:52sm00thno, I didn't say that paul

22:25:07ep0ch_can you guys like take this offline?
22:25:14Paul_The_NerdDoes the word "causse" mean something different than "cause" then?
22:25:19sm00thi said, I think the cause started *here*
22:25:27Terinjokesok, unplugged the ipod after sending over the album, nothing listed in applefw, any ideas on whats wrong?

22:26:03Paul_The_NerdSo, please, explain the rest of what you did.
22:26:05sm00thyeah, well since this is logged everyone can see your ridiculous semantics

22:26:28Paul_The_NerdSemantics are the foundation of language
22:26:33Paul_The_NerdSince I can't read minds, I can only read what you said

22:26:39Paul_The_NerdI have to assume that you actually *mean* what you type.
22:26:50sm00thyeah, then you should wait until someone finishes
22:27:24Paul_The_NerdWhat does you finishing have to do with what you said before? Were you going to later say "Oh, by the way, 10 minutes ago, that statement was wrong?"
22:27:45Paul_The_NerdJust hurry up and explain the rest of what you think is relevant to your problem
22:27:50Paul_The_NerdYou're right, this argument is pointless.

22:40:48markunPaul_The_Nerd: if the drive was accessible would "cat pauls_disk.img > /dev/sda" have worked?

22:41:25Paul_The_Nerdsm00th: I would actually suggest going back into the diagnostic mode and run the various tests, and see if any of them tell you of hardware errors.
22:41:56fleischenhow much mAh has the default battery of the h10?
22:42:14Arathisat least for 20gb
22:42:16sm00thI didn't receive any errors when I did that
22:42:34Arathisit's in a thread on misticriver or rockbox forum
22:42:34Paul_The_Nerdsm00th: All of the tests, like the flash scan and such?
22:42:52Paul_The_NerdHave you tried using a different USB port, cable, or computer?
22:43:11sm00thwait, flashscan is the only one I didnt do because it takes so long
22:43:21sm00thI'm using two different computers and ports
22:43:29sm00thone in winxp and one in gentoo linux
22:43:40sm00thbut no, I don't have a different cable to try
22:43:43Paul_The_NerdI'd suggest trying a different USB cable, but I'd suggest trying to let a flash scan finish first.
22:43:50sm00thrunning flashscan right now
22:44:39sm00thwhen I connect to the xp box with my cable in emergency disk mode, I can actually "see" the drive. I just can't do anything with it. the partition table seems to be gone
22:44:42Paul_The_NerdIf we're really lucky it could just be your cable though. But from the way your partition table just vanished, that seems somewhat unlikely
22:44:56Paul_The_NerdYou can see it, but not in disk management?
22:45:12sm00ththe drive is in disk management, but it reports as unrecognized
22:45:25Paul_The_NerdCan you make disk management format it to NTFS?
22:45:34sm00thI didnt try that
22:45:50Paul_The_NerdIt's interesting, but Apple seems to have planned for people stupidly reformatting their Nanos to NTFS
22:46:05sm00thI was hoping to recover the 4gb of music on there. and given that the partition table is borked, well then I don't konw if that'd be possible if i repartition and reformat
22:46:09Paul_The_NerdIf you try to reformat the normal partition, windows eats the boot partition too for some reason
22:46:34Paul_The_NerdBut I've found putting it to NTFS makes the "Apple Restore Utility" more likely to actually recognize the device and rebuild the proper partitions and data.
22:46:46sm00thouch, ok. back to square one
22:46:54Paul_The_NerdAt this point, recovering the music is somewhat unlikely, I'd say
22:46:56sm00thI don't have the normal partiotions
22:47:05sm00thyeah, that's cool. I have it backed up.
22:47:13sm00thand I don't have the apple os on there either.
22:47:21Arathisfleischen: 820 mAh for 5/6gb H10
22:47:22sm00thand flashscan is still at 0% ;(
22:47:29Paul_The_NerdThat's not a good sign
22:47:39Paul_The_NerdI started mine (on a 4gb) right before I suggested you start yours
22:47:42Paul_The_Nerd'I'm at 76%

22:48:42Paul_The_NerdAt this point you should be checking to see if you're still within your warranty period
22:48:43sm00thwow, that's odd
22:48:45Paul_The_NerdThis, at least, should be covered
22:48:52sm00thI just bought this like two months ago. at least I got it at costco
22:49:12Paul_The_NerdNot every unit that makes it past QC is perfect.

22:50:03sm00thoh, the odd part is that disk management now recognizes the drive as healthy
22:50:05sm00thbut unformated
22:50:37sm00thI can only do fat and fat32
22:50:44markunsm00th: linuxstb might be able to give some advice
22:50:50linuxstbsm00th: You could try restoring a backup partition table from the wiki
22:50:54linuxstb^Rockbox wiki
22:51:09sm00thlinuxstb, I wish I'd saved the partition from when we messed with this the other day
22:51:26sm00thdo you remember when we took the original firmware off and reclaimed that 80mb of space?
22:51:49linuxstbI do now - so the standard partition tables won't help you recover the data.
22:51:58sm00thI just reformatted
22:52:14sm00thI wonder if those errors we were getting are related
22:56:07sm00thlinuxstb, the partitions are all over the place. I can't even paste fdisk's response when i printed the table
22:56:41sm00ththere are four partitions, all of them have differeent physical/logical beginnings and endings
22:57:00sm00thand none end on cylinder boundaries
22:57:11sm00thand none are in order
22:58:57linuxstbThen your Nano probably doesn't have a partition table - it will just be formatted as a single NTFS drive in superfloppy mode.
22:59:12linuxstb(or FAT32, or whatever you chose...)
22:59:42sm00thI'm back in fdisk right now
22:59:49sm00thcreating a new partition table
23:00:27sm00thI thought it has to be fat32 for rockbox?
23:01:25linuxstbIt does.
23:02:00sm00thlinuxstb, now that I've made my partition 100K, and it reports that partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary, do you think that could have caused this issue over time?
23:02:37sm00ththat was kinda where we left it last time, neither of us knew what that would produce in the end
23:03:14linuxstbI've no idea. But if I was you, I would keep it at 100K and see if you get the same problem again.
23:03:39sm00thhahaha, ok. I'm going to do that.
23:03:47sm00thwth, I have backups ;)
23:04:37sm00thok, so both partition 1 and 2 do not end on cylinder boundaries
23:04:50sm00thI'll write it and go hang out until I get the error again

23:12:57sm00thand, if you feel that I was describing the problem i was having incorrectly or unclearly, then I apologize for jumping your shit
23:15:34Paul_The_Nerdsm00th: Well, I came down a little hard on you too, clearly. But we have a lot of people in here who come in, blame Rockbox for their problems, and have never googled it and really have no clue what's going on.
23:16:07Paul_The_NerdSo, when I read that you thought something "caused" it, and not only that, but that the cause was completely un-Rockbox, my frustration was that you were in here with it and all. I overreacted as well
23:18:41sm00thPaul, well I need to google that reset function some more. because everything checked clear, but when I clicked on it again, I am back to square one.
23:19:08sm00thit's the last test. all of the tests came back ok, even flashscan.
23:19:53Paul_The_NerdReset works fine for me.
23:20:22Paul_The_NerdAll it does is reboot your iPod from the diagnostic mode back into Apple firmware. It could be possible that it doesn't work right since you're missing the Apple FW
23:20:23sm00thhmm, so the last test is to make standard partitions and then do a 'reset' test
23:20:36sm00thoh, tada. yeah, that sounds reasonable
23:20:43Paul_The_NerdIt seems odd that it'd actually break the partition table though
23:20:47preglowSlasheri: it adds 1.3kb extra on iriver
23:20:52Paul_The_NerdI mean, it shouldn't *write* anything, should it?
23:21:00sm00thI wouldn't think so
23:21:09Paul_The_NerdBut then, this is Apple we're talking about
23:21:27sm00ththat's why I need to make standard partitions and retest it
23:21:39linuxstbWell, it's diagnostics mode - so it's possible some diagnostics are destructive...
23:21:40sm00thbecause it may be related to the fact that my partitions don't end on cylinder boundaries?
23:22:04sm00thand then I would have a better idea of whether it's related to that or the absence of the applefw
23:22:08Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: Well, I ran all of them safely on my nano just now.
23:22:42sm00thPaul, are you using a standard part table? or did you reclaim the 80mb in the first parition?
23:22:52sm00thand do you have the apple os still on there?
23:23:18Paul_The_NerdStandard, with Apple on there, at the moment
23:23:39Paul_The_NerdI've tried it without Apple OS, but I keep it there for the faster file transfers at the moment
23:24:21sm00thyeah, I'm tempted to put it back on there. but even so, I still want that 80mb of space. even with the apple os, it doesn't need all of that

23:27:45rboxerthank you. I've been using the wonderful rockbox for a while on my ihp120 but the fact that the radio is so much quieter than the original firmware is a real pita. I'm prepared to get into the code a bit to boost its volume but struggling to find a start point. Can anybody point me to the area of the code that handles volume and changes to it?
23:28:22Bagderrboxer: I think there's a patch for that, that bluebrother is working on
23:28:41Paul_The_NerdIs that related to the deemphasis thing or whatever, too?
23:28:49 Quit spiorf (Remote closed the connection)
23:28:52BagderI think so
23:29:07rboxercan you explain deemphasis?

23:30:25 Join matsl [0] (
23:31:15Arathismirak_: does the wiki video encode cmdline result in best quality compared to filesize or is there a better, but probably more complex way?
23:32:10bluebrotherrboxer, deemphasis is a intended distortion of the audio signal to decrease the noise.
23:32:44bluebrotheryou need to set the deemphasis matching to the emphasis that is used on the transmitting station.
23:33:10Paul_The_NerdArathis: It's simply an example encode for use with the current plugin. It's unlikely to be the final method (among other things, it'll eventually have sound) so it's not really worth worrying about.
23:33:16rboxerta bluebrother. Need to read up on noise control I think.
23:33:18bluebrotherso, from a users point it is simply a "set it to the correct value" which depends on your country.
23:33:31bluebrotherwikipedia has an article about that.
23:33:34Paul_The_Nerdbluebrother: Would this account for the volume issues European users are having?
23:33:57bluebrotherPaul_The_Nerd, no. The volume issue is something different which I haven't looked into.
23:34:16*Bagder stands corrected
23:34:24rboxerso deemphasis is used only by the radio?
23:34:37 Quit lodesi ("leaving")
23:34:53Paul_The_Nerdbluebrother: It's odd though, my radio sounds like it's at the same volume as my normal audio. Or at least, at a reasonably close volume
23:35:28rboxerpaul - you on ihp120 too?
23:35:28bluebrotherin my case the radio is lower, but I guess this is also related to the fact that I'm using ReplayGain a lot.
23:35:47rboxerradio's a lot lower here, unusable outside.
23:35:58rboxerno replaygain, standard cvs build

23:37:06Paul_The_NerdNow, I've *never* been in the Recording screen though (at least since my last settings reset)
23:37:21Paul_The_NerdIs it possible that in the case of the volume being too low, it's simply *always* a case of someone having lowered the recording gain at some point?

23:39:26Arathismaddog011: TrueJournals made a video on youtube
23:39:28rboxerisn't the recording setting separate from the radio / mixer stage anyway?
23:39:49maddog011haha nice, Arathis, i'll check out the video
23:39:57rboxer- should i try this replaygain thing?
23:40:09markunrboxer: you don't have to
23:40:14Arathisbut before the LCD and touchstrip (up) fixes were commited
23:40:24markunYou need to tag all your files for it to work
23:40:56rboxeri've barely got all my id3 tags sorted - don't need to go through them all again!
23:41:26Paul_The_Nerdrboxer: Replaygain doesn't help the radio issue at all.
23:41:50Paul_The_NerdIt's for making your files sound like they were recorded to approximately the same level so you aren't constantly adjusting the volume during a shuffled playlist.
23:42:12Paul_The_Nerdrboxer: Are you European, or American areas?
23:42:23rboxergotcha, Euro.
23:42:58Paul_The_NerdAre your radio broadcasts at a lower level (like how the volume is limited on MP3 players, to protect hearing)?
23:43:13rboxerbought the player in the US though, if it makes any difference
23:43:36Paul_The_NerdI don't think it would
23:43:43Paul_The_NerdEspecially since people say it's louder in the retail firmware anyway
23:43:55rboxerI only really listen to radio4 which admittedly isn't broadcast as loudly as radio 1 for instance, It was ok with the iriv firmware though
23:44:01Paul_The_NerdThough the "louder in retail" I wonder which retail version they're using

23:47:38rboxerany idea where to look to fix it?
23:47:53Paul_The_NerdBut it plays it a lot louder than it can play MP3s as well
23:48:33Paul_The_NerdI'd say the radio plays at about what +6 on the iPods sounds like
