02:52:27webguest11hi all, Im new to rockbox and like it so far, but I seem to have a problem browsing my music, everytime I pick a band or album, that becomes the default list, and I have to reboot to get a full list of all my music again, is this normal?
02:53:44ryranwebguest11, are you aware that you you need to press the back(skip) button instead of Menu to head back in the file tree?
02:53:51sPrinGfield0207hi, did you have an ipod video 80GB?
02:54:11alienbiker99sPrinGfield0207 theres a step by step guide in the manual

03:01:17sPrinGfield0207Is there a comparable operating system for this ipod?
03:01:40sPrinGfield0207eg ipodlinux?
03:01:54ryransPrinGfield0207, soap already told you. it's a classic.
03:02:18krazykitsPrinGfield0207, nothing like that.

03:05:46webguest11ok that ficxed my problem, now I just have one last question, how do I enable album art? do I need a special theme?
03:06:30sPrinGfield0207a pity, I would have been glad thus. is still worke in os or will never give it this?
03:06:51cool_walking_webguest11: Yes, you need a theme that uses album art. Look at the AlbumArt wiki page.
03:07:13webguest11does the default install have a theme that uses album art?
03:07:26saratogathe default does use album art
03:07:45Rock4Neuros6Love my archos jukebox 20 w/ROCKBOX! ... Got a Neuros OSD this past christmas.... has there been any talk of a port? I'm not savvy on the hardwared requirements but the Neuros Software just blows up on me alot... RockBox doesn't...
03:07:48webguest11cause im not seeing any album art
03:07:51saratogasPrinGfield0207: no one has looked at porting to the classic, so who knows
03:07:52cool_walking_The covers have to be named correctly and in the right format. See the wiki page.
03:08:05webguest11so I have to rename 450 albums?
03:08:19cool_walking_The covers have to be named something like "cover.bmp"
03:08:32cool_walking_There's a script on the wiki page that will rename for you.
03:08:40soapand be smaller than the screen dimensions.
03:08:42ryranor programs to use in windows
03:09:02webguest11ok thank you for the info
03:09:06ryranvery simple, though it WILL take a little bit of your time and effort
03:09:28webguest11i dont use windows I use ubuntu
03:09:50soapeven easier, because IIRC there is a conversion script for *nix on said wikipage.

12:23:39gevaertsgibbon_: as long as you format it as fat32, yes
12:23:46linuxstbOr maybe their external codec is better than the internal one - e.g. does the internal codec also have an ADC?

15:27:31GodEaterafaik you can *either* use the audio buffer as memory for your plugin, *or* you can let your plugin do playback things
15:27:34GodEateryou can't do both
15:27:48ItalianPianistand it overwrites the memory i was using for my plugin
15:27:56GodEateryes, this doesn't surprise me in the slightest
15:28:46ItalianPianistwell i believed the playback engine had some sort of buffer checking to prevent overwritings...
15:28:56GodEaterhow would that work ?
15:29:09GodEaterthe playback engine assumes it has the entire audio buffer
15:29:13ItalianPianistjust thought was better to report this behaviour
15:29:22 Quit MethoS (No route to host)
15:29:29GodEaterif you've used it in your plugin, the playback engine isn't to know how much of it you're actually consuming
15:29:44ItalianPianisti think the playback engine should check some sort of flag signalling the buffer is requested or not
15:30:37GodEaterplayback_control isn't even defined in plugin.h that I can see
15:31:28ItalianPianistas i wrote before it it's contained in lib/playback_control.h

15:31:51GodEaterplugins should only call functions defined in plugin.h

15:33:36ItalianPianistno they don't

15:36:24GodEaterusing the audio buffer is an all-or-nothing affair

15:37:52*gevaerts grabs his pitchfork-proof suit
15:37:53jhMikeSit is possible to extend plugin_get_audio_buffer to maintain voice since audio_get_buffer allows the voice file and pcm buffer to be preserved
15:38:02ItalianPianisti think that plugin memory and buffer memory should be isolated... so simply if u request all buffer memory the playback engine cannot have playback memory so it'd stop "firing" sound
15:38:54GodEaterItalianPianist: I'm confused though, if that happens, then you can't do anything with playback at all - in which case you might as well not call the playback_control in the first place ?
15:39:34ItalianPianisti mean the playback engine should check if all memory is requested and stopping all sound functions accordingly (apart from those used in plugin)

15:40:46ItalianPianistthe entire situation is this: i use sound in plugin, so i need playback control to access to volume control
15:41:06jhMikeSummm, since when?
15:41:37ItalianPianistand i request all buffer. But when i access to the volume control, the main playback engine "fires" the sound voce speaking something like -32db etc
15:41:59ItalianPianistthen some part of my allocated memory will be overwritten
15:42:06jhMikeSItalianPianist: that's why there's a facility to disable menu voicing
15:43:14ItalianPianist...well i think that should be enabled/disabled by the main playback engine when i request the entire buffer ... _i think_
15:43:52ItalianPianistit's some sort of undocumented "side-effect" ...
15:44:26ItalianPianistnow i know it but.... if someone else will write some other plugins without knowing it?
15:44:59jhMikeSthen request the audio buffer with voicing enabled and watch conflict for the pcm resources
15:46:13ItalianPianisti dont' need voice enabled... but i didn't know i had to disable it to avoid nasty side-effects

16:07:22gevaertsI think I see what's wrong. usb_state in usb.c isn't updated correctly in this case. You could try moving the 'usb_state = USB_POWERED;' on line 192 in usb.c up to just outside the if (i.e. at line 190), but I have to think more to be sure this is entirely correct (it shouldn't harm, but might still leave some corner cases)
16:07:49*gevaerts unfortunately didn't change anything related since r16689, so couldn't try that excuse
16:09:42LambdaCalculus37gevaerts: I can look at it when I get home. If it works, I'll make a diff and post it to the tracker.

16:54:00ItalianPianisti mean the OTG cable: internally it has some sort of "pin sensing" that's obtained by shortcircuiting pin4+5 i guess. Usually usb data cables (not host) use only 4 pins insted of 5 in case of OTG
16:55:05ItalianPianistand aso the shape is quite different (as you can see in the european h320 models looking at the female connectors)

19:35:01bluebrothermaybe it's caused by some utf-8 issue on cygwin?
19:35:15amiconnCertainly not

19:45:35linuxstb_amiconn: Do you want me to test on my ipods?
19:46:02amiconnBad thing is that while the pointer is at (iram_end - 0xe4), the actual struct (where the pointer points to) is located way earlier in iram
19:46:17amiconnOur bootloader almost gets there
19:46:40linuxstb_Hmm, so maybe crt0.S should save it...
19:47:05amiconnOn my 1st Gen, it is located at 0x400127e0, and on my Mini, it's even at 0x4000ff18
19:47:48amiconnThe latter is in the first half of iram...
19:48:06amiconnIt would probably be a good idea to test this on various ipods
19:48:18amiconn...including those early 1st Gens of course
19:48:43amiconnMaybe the addresses help to track down where and how the apple flash loader fills this struct
19:49:03*amiconn would prefer it to not rely on the apple loader to get the hw revision

19:49:28amiconnThat doesn't mean we shouldn't save the struct _if_ we want to be able to rolo the OF

19:49:51amiconnWant a patch?
19:52:51linuxstb_Although why shouldn't we rely on this struct? Because of the possibility of replacing the Apple bootloader?
19:52:53thgzHmm, seems that the problem exists still in finnish.lang, because with Espeak I had the same results...
19:53:06amiconnAs mentioned, quick hack using the ipl sources... doesn't adhere to rockbox coding style
19:53:12amiconn(CamelCase etc)
19:53:18 Part thgz
19:54:18amiconnlinuxstb: Because of the (slim) chance that we will eventually manage to boot an ipod without apple code one day...
19:56:04linuxstb_What options does that leave us? The ASCII HwId?
19:56:17amiconnThat's what I hope to find out
19:56:51amiconnThe struct must be filled in by the flash loader, and knowing where the struct is written should help to find the code that does it
19:58:22amiconnDo you think we should provide a precompiled test bootloader for testing those 1st Gens?
20:01:13linuxstbI get 0x4001208C and 0x00060004 (which is right)

21:06:58linuxstb_gevaerts: You're suggesting usb audio as an SoC project?
21:08:42bluebrotherwhat was the exact spelling of the Itunes folder? iPod_Control?
21:08:59gevaertslinuxstb_: it's a possibility. I haven't thought about it much. The main problem with usb-driver SoC projects is that we have no idea when USB will finally work properly, which might demotivate people (i.e. you just built this great audio thing, but it doesn't get enabled because someone else didn't find how to make usb behave properly)
21:10:11gevaertslinuxstb_: a specific usb audio issue is that it needs isochronous transfers to work, which haven't been done yet, but those shouldn't present too much of a problem
21:10:13linuxstb_bluebrother: Yes, that sounds right.

21:16:43gevaertsI believe the main problem with sansa charging is the "strange" battery voltage readouts while connected, so it's hard to know when to stop charging
21:17:17*bluebrother overlooked half of current SoC page :(
21:17:24amiconnThe readout is just for rockbox to tell the charge state
21:17:25bertrikcharging is almost automatic on the as3514

21:17:49*gevaerts still thinks it's 'yes'. He really believed that ;)
21:17:53amiconnSoftware controlled charging would be too dangerous with LiIon/LiPo
21:18:32amiconnPowermanagement definitely needs work, but not only for sansa

21:19:28*amiconn doesn't really like the idea of gsoc projects adding features at all for this year
21:19:39gevaertsI just noticed. It looks like every new port that needed something extra just bolted that on.
21:20:12amiconnRockbox got lots of new features in the past. Stability and usability suffered
21:20:26amiconnRight now, large parts of the UI are buggy and/or laggy
21:20:42*bluebrother agrees that we need more stabilizing / bugfixing work done
21:21:10amiconnPlayback engine unification is definitely something I do want, but not in the current state of the swcodec engine
21:21:27bluebrotherplayback was running much smoother before MoB went in
21:21:37*gevaerts thinks it's unlikely that a new developer (like most GSoC students) can really do stabilizing/bugfixing/cleanup effectively
21:21:38amiconnNot really
21:21:48amiconnIt had different problems

21:53:19*gevaerts hasn't seen greylib working yet (only color targets), but is impressed by it actually working fast enough to be useful
21:54:06amiconnFor each pixel, there are 2 bytes stored in RAM. The first is the actual pixel brightness, the second is the bresenham accumulator or phase
21:54:30linuxstb_Nico_P: Around?
21:54:37amiconnAs both values are 8 bit, this limits the values to 0..128, making up for 129 shades (otherwise the phase would overflow)
21:55:36amiconnOne reason for this new apprach to be significantly faster than the old one is that there's way less bit shuffling involved, as the pixel values are bytes
21:55:55linuxstb_Nico_P: I'm looking at implementing bitmap "tiles" (a vertical strip of bitmaps) in conditionals, and am not sure how to go about it in the WPS code... Ideally I want to avoid adding extra tags, just an option "num_subimages" parameter to %xl
21:55:58amiconnThe other one has to do with the necessary anti-moire measure
21:56:20 Part RaZorbacK
21:56:37bertrikthis requires an add for each pixel each frame, right?
21:56:53Nico_Plinuxstb_: that's also the main thing that refrained me... I'm really not sure which solution is best
21:57:02amiconnSince the lcd is fast enough to make it flicker a bit with the described mechanism, you could observe moire patterns if all pixels would start at the same phase
21:57:44linuxstb_Nico_P: My current idea is to expand a %xd tag that refers to an image with subimages into multiple "display sub-image" tokens when its parsed.
21:57:45amiconnHence, the phase is initialized with a random seed. The new library does this just once, at init. Since the phase is never reset during operation, it stays random enough for each pixel
21:58:07amiconnThe old graylib had to shift its precalculated patterns for each pixel drawn

21:58:56amiconnEven though this used a very fast linear congruency based prng, it was the cause for its slowness, and also the graininess when displaying non-static content
21:59:25Nico_Plinuxstb_: I'm not sure I understand? wouldn't an %xd tag display only one subimage of a particular bitmap file?
21:59:27amiconnbertrik: Yes, it requires an addition and a comparison for each pixel each frame
21:59:59amiconnThis calculation is done in lcd_grey_phase_blit(), in assembler

22:02:26Nico_Pah right
22:02:27amiconnThe speedup vs. the old library is actually impressive. The old graylib achieved ~4.1 fps on the archos recorder (update speed, the frame output speed must match the internal lcd frame frequency, which is ~67 Hz for the archos lcd)
22:02:53amiconnThe greylib now achieves 36.5fps update speed...

22:03:52gevaertsDoes it optimize in some way for fully white or black areas ?
22:04:09Nico_Plinuxstb_: I like it. I guess you'll have to add a new token, but the syntax ramains the almost same and that's nice

22:04:29Nico_Phave you thought of a way to make it work for animations?
22:04:38amiconnSimilar speedups on coldfire (H140: 8.1 -> 47.7 fps) and arm (ipod mini G2: 27->209 fps)
22:04:48linuxstb_Nico_P: We want animations?
22:05:22*gevaerts once managed a similar speedup in some java code on arm, but that was easier : just throw out all floating point, and use a precalculated sine table
22:05:28amiconngevaerts: No, as such an 'optimisation' would be way slower than the whole thing
22:05:40LloreanNico_P: you can already do animations, wouldn't the same method work?
22:05:41Nico_PI'm thinking of iCatcher as an example,
22:06:00Nico_PLlorean: it would, but it would be nice to be able to make an animation using a bitmap strip
22:06:22gevaertsHmm, yes. I guess detecting a black or white pixel costs just as much as just handling it normally
22:06:39linuxstb_Nico_P: Have you seen this patch?
22:07:02amiconngevaerts: Even more, as you would have to check each pixel individually
22:07:36amiconnRight now the code fetches 4 pixel values, 4 pixel phases, and then does its calculation without ever splitting them into individual values
22:07:51gevaertsindeed. I guess you thought about this a bit ;)
22:08:00Nico_Plinuxstb_: the issue I had with it was how it added a ton of tags. I think your idea solves that problem elegantly :)
22:08:15amiconnThe only individual calculation is to check the msb of each phase byte whether the pixel should be black or white this time
22:08:38linuxstb_Nico_P: Maybe the %xa (animate) tag could be used though?
22:08:52amiconnOn processors where that's possible (coldfire), the same instruction resets that bit, effectively subtracting 128 this way
22:09:11amiconnOn others, the 4 msbs are reset with one separate instruction
22:09:13Nico_Plinuxstb_: yes, that one would be worth it and I don't really see any other way
22:09:21Nico_Pit would simplify some WPS a lot
22:09:24*gevaerts can optimize code on a high level, but is no good once people start talking about saving one instruction here by doing something else there...
22:09:36*amiconn is rather the opposite
22:09:53amiconnI like doing low-level stuff most

22:13:13linuxstb_Nico_P: I don't understand the wps code very well, so am not sure how to go about implementing it.... I've added the new parameter to the %xl tag, and added num_subimages to struct gui_img, but that's all.
22:14:11linuxstb_Nico_P: I'm thinking I can either implement it in the parser (expanding the %xd tag into the equivalent of %xd.1|%xd.2|%xd.3 etc), or handle it when evaluating the conditional.

22:16:29*ItalianPianist just discovered nasty things about BUTTON_REC on H320
22:17:00jhMikeSamiconn: so you add the pixel value to the phase, when bit 7 becomes set, flit it to white and clear bit 7, otherwise black?
22:17:32peturItalianPianist: don't mention it ;)
22:19:11Nico_Plinuxstb_: the only problem I see is to know which image to display. the token can only have one value
22:19:24*bertrik likes low-level stuff too, rather talk to hardware than to a database
22:19:34linuxstb_Nico_P: That's easy - we can just store it in the high bits.
22:19:42Nico_PI was thinking the same
22:19:50amiconnjhMikeS: There's a slight deviation on SH - it subtracts the pixel value from the phase and sets bit 7 if it becomes 0
22:20:25amiconnThis is in order to optimize the use of the single conditional flag that exists on SH
22:20:28linuxstb_Nico_P: And img[].display can change from bool to unsigned char - to say which sub-image should be displayed during that refresh.
22:20:50linuxstb_Or maybe even signed char - -1 for no display, 0-127 for display
22:22:16amiconn(the output pixel selection isn't done via bt/bf, where it would be simple to check for one case or the other, but rather by directly using the T flag in negc)
22:22:51Nico_Plinuxstb_: sounds good to me
22:23:33linuxstb_Nico_P: I think I can handle the rest if you could change parse_image_display...

22:46:39pigaHello, I was looking for a GSoC project for this year and I found the ARM Emulator idea.
22:47:01pigaHave you already heard about ArchC?
22:47:17pigaIt is a platform simulation tool.
22:47:41pigaI think I can use it to do an ARM emulator.
22:48:16Nico_Pbertrik: (I don't know if anyone answered) I once tried to run lint on the code, but it got lost in all the #ifdef and I gave up trying to make it work
22:48:16pigaBut I have just a little knowledge about rockbox
22:49:15bertrikNico_P: ok, I can understand some of the difficulties
22:49:39 Join mirak [0] (
22:49:55Nico_Pbluebrother: It's true there were new issues with MoB but at least now thanks to it (and the voice codec change), playback.c has become much more understandable and more people dare touch it. I really think it has become possible to bring it up to a stabler state than it was in before MoB.
22:49:58domonok1piga: be aware that rockbox runs on many platforms, so this arm emulator should be very flexibel, customicable to emulate the different arm target
