#rockbox log for 2008-04-14

00:00:28BigBambir0rshach: Anyway, it isn't a problem, it is just a setting you may have to change :)
00:00:38r0rshachthe 100 gig drive is 161
00:00:43BigBambi161 what?
00:00:54BigBambir0rshach: This is a very international channel...
00:00:55amiconnbananas ;)
00:01:23r0rshachbut it seems dumb to go from 60 to 80...
00:01:35r0rshachbut 80 is quite big....i suppose

00:02:39amiconnHmm, interesting effect... if I increase the wait-for-voltage-to-stabilize sleep() after ide_power_enable() in ata.c to HZ/10, the dropout goes away
00:02:42BigBambir0rshach: Have you looked at to make sure you get the correct connector?
00:02:58amiconnHZ/20 isn't enough (SVN uses HZ/50)
00:03:29amiconnNot the question is - why does this cause a dropout if only reading non playback related data??
00:03:37r0rshachthanks bambi
00:03:48BigBambino probs

00:09:37peturjhMikeS: in thread.c line 2025, if it breaks at that point, does that mean irq stays off (I might not understand that code completely, just asking). At the other break point (line 2042) irq is switched on again.

00:11:28r0rshachactually bambi i take that back i just double check and there is only one model that appear to fit in my player
00:11:36r0rshachso itll be harder to shop around
00:11:54CasainhoBagder: :-) - just to say that in the make file of u-boot, were defined the cross_compiler as "arm-linux-" and I changed that to "arm-elf-" :-) −− It did build the example hello world code... but, after gives an error saying "ar-elf-ld: libgcc.a uses hardware FP wheras u-boot uses software FP :-( :-(

00:23:12days_of_ruinAny idea on when it will be ready?
00:23:15amiconnThere must be a reason why too early accesses make rockbox glitch
00:23:43Bagderdays_of_ruin: that's not possible to tell
00:23:43krazykitdays_of_ruin, there is no timeframe for new ports.

00:31:08BagderI read it more like "I need to educate these guys about that ARM cores can be used in different chips"
00:31:55LloreanBagder: I still think he expects rockbox to be an app running on Linux, or some such.
00:31:58BagderI need a mute function for specific threads in the forum!
00:32:09Bagderthat hides them from me
00:32:17LloreanBagder: I THINK I can arrange that, if you really want it.
00:32:30Bagdernah, I need to learn how to mute in my head
00:32:46Bagderthere's just too many voices there! ;-P
00:32:51*amiconn found the ata hard reset in the mini ROM :)
00:33:21LloreanBagder: Bah, there's just an ignore feature, or ignore board, mod, no ignore thread mod yet it seems
00:34:23*Llorean doesn't want to install the "ignore user" feature for fear that too many people will simply choose to ignore him.

01:01:00amiconnWell, there's at least one Archos Player that crashes when using ide_power_enable(). That's why it's not enabled for Player in SVN
01:01:18amiconnMy Studio 10 works fine with it enabled

01:02:13 Nick pathobitch is now known as pathogen (i=juma@gateway/gpg-tor/key-0xB9002659)
01:02:13amiconnThe crash in this case means that the whole thing powers off when the disk is powered on again after being switched off

06:47:35[TiZ]Hey, guys.
06:48:14[TiZ]I already know where this is going to go, but I'd like someone to take a look at my readme file and point out what I did wrong with it. I'm sure I messed something up.
06:48:43[TiZ]Is this better in #rockbox-community?
06:49:28Llorean[TiZ]: I see at least one of your images has the -attribution clause. Have you found out explicitly what form of attribution the author of such images requires?
06:49:54[TiZ]They're all on Flickr, so I hope just a link to the page works.
06:50:05[TiZ]And they all have at least the attribution clause.
06:50:36LloreanThe attribution clause say, and I quote, "You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor"
06:50:58LloreanThis means you need to do it in the way the author says, which means you need to find out exactly where the author says what way they want attributed.
06:52:33[TiZ]None of them seem to say anywhere.
06:52:46[TiZ]Perhaps I should just submit my WPS without backdrops.
06:52:56krazykit[TiZ], you should ask them, then.
06:53:30[TiZ]Yahoo accounts work on Flickr, don't they?
06:54:23[TiZ]I'm sorry if I seem like a jerk right now. I'm still really sore about those backdrops I made.
06:54:53[TiZ]And I know it's not your fault.

11:09:09Lloreanpondlife: Can you understand what that guy actually wants to *do* with the new version of "Follow Playlist" he's proposed?
11:09:34pondlifeNot yet, anyway
11:09:35gevaertsYou get 500 mA from USB. They probably cheat and get some more. LCD and wheels light use about 40mA. That's less than 0%
11:09:43 Join mrkiko [0] (
11:10:12LloreanAs far as I can see, he just wants a shortcut to "View Current Playlist", but he seems to think that it'll let him add songs, so I fear he expects you to be able to launch a song from within a playlist, without launching the playlist, then hit select to go back to that playlist...
11:10:19Gartralit still baught 15 mins off charging time from dead
11:10:29LloreanKinda like a "Genre" filter in the database, where the filter itself is separate from the playlist.
11:10:40gevaertsOnly if the battery can actually take that extra charging current
11:11:03LloreanSo he could insert songs from "Blues.m3u" and "Rock.m3u" then hit select on a song that came from "Blues.m3u" and end up back there.
11:11:47Lloreangevaerts: Rockbox gets less on the e200 because we don't tell the power control chip to charge, iiuc.
11:12:29pondlifeAlso on H300, I believe...
11:12:40Gartralit seems it does... cus in OFW the wheel light stays off untill you touch it... then its perma on untill reboot, and ive charged in OFW and between WL on and off, there is a difference, im not shure how much, seeing as the BL on the screen never turns off
11:12:51 Quit spiorf (Remote closed the connection)
11:13:17Lloreanpondlife: I'd heard there was an option somewhere on H300. Don't have one m'self though
11:13:42pondlifeUSB charging on/off only - i.e. 0mA or 100mA.
11:13:56Gartraland theres always activity in the OFWs charge/transfer mode, waisting more power
11:13:56pondlifeI don't think we sussed out how to get 500mA
11:15:30peturthe OF of the h300 has a setting to select connection to PC or hub
11:16:47pondlifepetur: Does that control charging? I wondered...

11:20:34MartinRFS #8363 fixed the charging for me.
11:22:11pondlifeLlorean: I think that he's wanting the file browser to be capable of treating playlists like directories... so having originally selected PARTY.m3u, you'd be able to browse inside it, and then follow playlist would go to the selected entry.
11:22:22pondlifeDoes that make any more sense?
11:22:30amiconnpondlife: On H300 we can't as the usb controller is hardware, and the pin that could tell us isn't connected afaik
11:22:49amiconnOn iaudios (same bridge), the pin is connected
11:23:02pondlifeHmm, so the OF doesn't do 500mA either?
11:23:19amiconnIt does, that's what the hub/pc setting is for
11:23:30pondlifeOK, so can we not do the same?
11:23:38amiconnAfaik we do, but I'm not sure
11:23:49*amiconn always charges with the charger
11:23:56petursame here
11:24:02Lloreanpondlife: Treat them like directories, and allow you to insert from them into the dynamic playlist, but allow returning to them with "Select" anyway, yes.
11:24:04pondlifeMe too. It definitely seems to charge faster with the charger
11:24:20amiconnDrawing 500mA without asking is a violation of the usb standard, but it works on most ports
11:24:20pondlifeLlorean: Yes. I quite like the idea
11:24:42pondlifeLlorean: Obviously, default action would still play the playlist..
11:24:46LloreanI'd rather "Select" always return you to the physical file, if "Follow" was on.
11:24:51*gevaerts puts on his USB spec pedant hat
11:25:00amiconnOf course. USB cannot provide more than 500mA. The initial charging current a LiIon of that capacity can take is much higher
11:25:08LloreanI don't mind allowing them to be viewed easily (make it the second option in the context window) and inserted from into the current one, for example.
11:25:20gevaertsPC/Hub makes no difference at all on what current you're allowed to draw.
11:25:25amiconnThere's a reason why the iriver and iaudio chargers are rated 1.8...2.0 A
11:25:25LloreanBut I really don't like the idea of "Following" to a place within a playlist.
11:25:38pondlifeThat would be a 3rd option on Follow Playlist.
11:25:55LloreanSince then you'd have to track every playlist that every song in the dynamic playlist came from.
11:25:56gevaertsIf you happen to use a bus-powered hub, it's 100mA, period.
11:26:01LloreanWhich seems rather silly.
11:26:09amiconngevaerts: They do, although that setting is somewhat confusing. A passive hub can never provide 500mA
11:26:25Lloreanpondlife: Why would you want "Follow" to do that, anyway?
11:26:36pondlifeI wouldn't, but "Mike" does
11:26:41amiconnThat's what that setting actually means. "Hub" limits to 100mA
11:26:53Lloreanpondlife: You said you liked the idea though. So I'm asking you why you like it.
11:27:04pondlifeI like the idea of integrating into the file browser
11:27:14pondlifeNot so much the follow playlist change
11:27:21LloreanAh, then we're more or less agreed.
11:27:41pondlifeIt would make it easy to do the other request (to insert/queue from a saved playlist)
11:28:05LloreanI don't necessarily think it should be "integrated into the browser", but I think viewing a playlist that isn't currently playing, and inserting from it, should be made as painless as possible (while being distinct enough that you know you're manipulating playlist entries, and not physical files)
11:28:51pondlifeLlorean: No, the idea was that you could (apparently) browse into a saved playlist, then select a file in there and queue it, for example
11:28:54 Join Monkeytamer [0] (
11:29:11pondlifeIt would appear to be just like browsing into a subdir
11:29:17LloreanI don't like that.
11:29:20LloreanAt all
11:29:28pondlifeWhy not?
11:29:39pondlifeI don't have time to argue now, I should warn you!
11:29:47LloreanBecause the filetree shouldn't transparently shift into non-filetree operations.
11:29:51LloreanIt's a file browser, explicitly
11:30:07LloreanI can see the database having an option to index your M3Us in a "Playlists" filter, and let you browse the like that, perhaps
11:30:16pondlifeYes, maybe
11:30:49pondlifeBut it shouldn't matter which browser really... if you have an M3U file selected, the context menu should offer the same options
11:31:15LloreanSelecting it from the context menu isn't the same as browsing into it, though.
11:31:16pondlifethat's all I'm talking about really, a context menu option to view playlist
11:31:31pondlifeLike I said, the default action should not change
11:31:37pondlifei.e. it should play the playlist
11:31:44MonkeytamerHi, I have a quick question concerning bitmap strips if someone would be so kind. Does it matter what bit depth for which the strips are saved? I noticed that cabbiev2 has the title 240x320x16, and I was wondering if it matters whether the bit depth is 16 or 24
11:31:50Lloreanpondlife: Then I *think* we agree on this one
11:32:16LloreanI was confused for a bit, because you said "no" and I guess I misunderstood which statement you said it to.
11:32:40pondlifeThe playlist viewer should offer the same per-file options as the browsers anyway, so it should appear consistent. I expect it's not quite there at the moment...
11:32:42LloreanMonkeytamer: The screens are only 16-bit.

11:33:35MonkeytamerOh, I understand that, but I've always saved album art at 24-bit, and wasn't sure if there really was a difference, though I made copies in both depths.
11:34:05LloreanMonkeytamer: If you save it in 16-bit, you know exactly what it'll look like. If you save it in 24-bit, you have to trust how Rockbox will decrease the color depth.
11:34:37Monkeytameroh ok, thank you for the detailed information.

11:52:56Lloreanpondlife: More or less spot on with what he wanted to do with it.
11:52:58Nico_Ppondlife: good news :)
11:53:26Nico_PI've fixed the next track info for the end of the buffered data
11:53:30LloreanI've just realized, though, for the purposes of "insert", a .m3u file with a single entry is for most intents and purposes a shortcut to an actual audio file.
11:53:44Nico_PI just need to fix the playlist index display and clean up
11:53:48pondlifeLlorean: Yes, but that should come out in the wash
11:54:05Gartralyou know... thats annoying
11:54:21pondlifeNico_P: Committing soon then?
11:54:27Nico_Ppondlife: I hope, yes
11:55:26Gartrala shortcut that points to 1obj.m3u is nothing but a redundant shortcut... this sounds like what vista does!
11:55:49pondlifeLlorean: I think that Mike's requests are both valid, but they need to the playlist viewer in the core.
11:56:33Lloreanpondlife: Tracking what playlist every song was inserted from?
11:57:04pondlifeAh, no!
11:57:30pondlifeBut tracking the current playlist
11:57:35pondlifei.e. which file it's in.
11:57:49LloreanHe wants it to remember which .m3u file each one was inserted from, if I'm reading him right, so that he can click select while it's playing, and be back "browsing" within that M3U.
11:57:57LloreanDoesn't "View Current Playlist" show you which file you're on?
11:58:05pondlifeYes, it does.
11:58:14LloreanOkay, I'm missing what you mean by "which file it's in" then
11:59:03pondlifeI was only thinking of allowing this with the current playlist (if it's saved), not any playlist
11:59:41Gartraltheres an indicater beside the file thats currently playing in your playlist veiw
11:59:41LloreanI really don't understand then.
12:00:12LloreanIf it's a saved playlist, then all files are still in the .m3u, and "View playlist" is good enough, right?
12:00:20pondlifei.e. he can return to the playlist viewer within the current playlist.. then exiting the viewer would respect Follow Playlist and return to the file browser where it lives
12:00:33pondlifeSo, it's a tweak to the playlist viewer mainly
12:00:47LloreanSo make "Follow Playlist" work both when exiting the WPS, and when exiting the playlist viewer?
12:00:48pondlifeCurrently it's rather linked into the WPS
12:00:54pondlifeYes, kind of
12:01:22LloreanPerhaps a context menu option in the playlist viewer "Browse To", that takes you to the browser at the location of that file?
12:01:27pondlifeI'd like the playlist viewer to be a browser in its own right, not so context-y
12:01:28LloreanSince you have a full path anyway.
12:01:52pondlifeYes, that would do too, but a left click is easier
12:01:59LloreanI don't see how the playlist viewer can be a browser... you don't have any hierarchy, just a flat list of files.
12:02:19pondlifeIt's a rather limited browser, sure
12:02:59pondlifeBut it seems "Mike" runs everything through saved playlists
12:03:02LloreanBut I think I understand what you're suggesting. "When you use 'left' to leave the viewer, if (option X) is enabled, be where the highlighted file is located, rather than where the playlist viewer was invoked from"?
12:03:09pondlifeYes, basically.
12:03:38pondlifeI'd like it to *appear to be* part of the file browser, I guess.
12:03:59LloreanMike seems to want it to remember which .m3u file each entry in the dynamic playlist was inserted from, so he can have "Follow" show him the contents of that m3u file, if I've got a grasp on his requirements in conjunction with his other feature request.
12:04:14pondlifeThat's not going to happen
12:04:53Gartralthat would be tideous
12:05:02Gartralvery tideous
12:05:06Lloreanpondlife: See, I really don't like the idea of things appearing to be part of the file browser when they're not. I wouldn't mind seamless launching of the viewer, and leaving from it back into the file browser, but I think it should be distinct that you're not working with files any more.
12:06:19pondlifeI don't have a big opinion on this, but I think the appearance of a seamless browse into m3u and out again is nice.
12:06:40pondlifeThe heading (if you have it enabled) would have .m3u on it...
12:07:19pondlifeAnd you are working with files really. The targets of the m3u
12:07:26LloreanBut not really.
12:07:30Llorean"Delete" removes it from the playlist, not the disk.
12:07:39Llorean"Move" moves it within the playlist, not to another location on disk.
12:07:49pondlifeTrue, but I'd like to see that integrated properly.
12:07:51LloreanYou're working with strings in a text file.
12:08:05LloreanThey in fact don't even necessarily represent files currently on the disk
12:08:14pondlifeIndeed, they may not exist
12:08:31pondlifeBut for a UI, it's nice to be able to select Insert etc.
12:08:57LloreanI don't see what that has to do with making it appear to be part of the file browser, though.
12:08:59pondlifeWe should offer all sensible per-file options.
12:10:01LloreanI just think that if it appears to actually be part of the file browser, you're going to get people who think it is part of the file browser, and that will cause more confusion than just making it easily available, but distinct.

12:13:47pondlifeAll I'm talking about is adding the ability to return from the playlist viewer to the file browser, and maybe making context menus more consistent. Nothing more.
12:14:07pondlifeAnd I don't want it myself, but I think it might help "Mike".
12:14:57Lloreanpondlife: The playlist viewer's always going to have different context menu options. Even if it gets Insert/Queue ones, it will still need ones for reorganizing the playlist, etc.
12:15:08pondlifeOf course
12:15:14LloreanBut I can agree that the ability to return to the file browser would be nice.
12:15:59LloreanI don't see that being able to do so necessarily has anything to do with having it 'appear to be' part of the file browser though.
12:16:05pondlifeIt doesn't
12:16:30*Llorean is just lost.
12:16:34*pondlife too
12:16:39pondlifeBack later
12:16:46LloreanYou said earlier you want it to appear to be part of the file browser.
12:17:14LloreanBut then your list of individual wants all seem to be functionality based rather than appearance based.
12:17:57*Llorean can't tell if we're in agreement or at odds...
12:20:44pondlifeI think we agree, but I was unclear earlier, so don't worry

13:47:03Gartralwhat would the room recoment as far as video rerendering for RB?
13:48:35linuxstbffmpeg or one of its front-ends.
13:48:47Gartralwinblows clone?
13:49:07linuxstbBut it doesn't really matter - Rockbox plays standard mpeg 1/2 files, so you can use any mpeg encoder.
13:49:21*domonoky doesnt know what winblows is, but suggest winff :-)
13:50:32Gartralright... but ide like one that doesnt take 3 hours too encode a movie... im transfering my ISOed dvd collection too RB playable files (YES I FREAKING OWN THE DISKS)
13:50:59B4gderGartral: transcoding is quite cpu intensive
13:52:17Gartrali have a four proc dule core cluster,each core is at 3GRZ... proc time is no object to me

13:53:47LloreanGartral: On a dual core 1.6ghz computer, transcoding from a ripped DVD to a format Rockbox can play takes about 60-70% of the length of the movie in time, if memory serves.
13:53:49Gartrali just want a transcoder that has a fast algorythm for its job....

13:55:57LloreanGartral: My point is, ffmpeg doesn't take 3 hours on my computer. I can decrypt, rip, AND encode a movie in around that time frame on this computer, so I don't see what your response to the suggestion that you use ffmpeg was.
13:56:18linux_manjulinuxstb: Delete build directory and create it in the svn root folder?

14:05:16linux_manjuThis time also there is not bootloader directory
14:06:29linuxstbCan you paste (to pastebin) the output of ../tools/configure ?

14:08:58Gartrali dont know where one that works IS
14:08:59linux_manjulinuxstb: Configure complete screenshot
14:10:02LloreanGartral: The internet is chock full of video encoders, there are probably hundreds, maybe even thousands, of the things. We tell you all the information you need to know about the desired output format, so you can decide on your own among them.
14:10:10Gartralas the wiki mentions, its a special preset file... i know not here too find this old WinFF version, nor how to update the new Preset.xml file
14:10:57gevaertslinux_manju: that looks correct. One piece of advice though : it's usually not considered a good idea to do all this as root
14:11:19LloreanGartral: I assure you, the original creator of the preset file had just as much knowledge of WinFF as you do now not more than a day before creating those presets.

You're beginning to irritate the wrong people, and are likely to be removed if you don't follow the guidelines.
14:20:41linux_manjuGartral: Sorry.. Band fingers.. It was supposed to be for gevaerts
14:21:59gevaertslinux_manju: that output looks really weird to me. Was that after deleting the build directory and recreating it ?
14:22:11linuxstblinux_manju: That output is very strange... After line 84, it should start building the bootloader files, but it appears to be doing something else...
14:23:00linux_manjugevaerts: Yes.. I deleted build and then recreated build
14:23:07linux_manjugevaerts: and ran ../tools/configure
14:23:17linux_manjugevaerts: I did not do a make clean FYI
14:23:37linux_manjugevaerts: Trying with the fresh checkout from SVN
14:23:43gevaertsIf build/ was empty, make clean is not needed
14:23:48*gevaerts is out of ideas
14:24:03Lloreanlinux_manju: "make clean" should only affect files in the build directory, so with a new build directory it wouldn't change anything.
14:24:11linuxstblinux_manju: If I was you, I would delete your entire rockbox folder, change back to a normal user, and try checking out SVN again.
14:24:24Gartralthe reason i asked here, is because i asked before and got a yes: winff will open isos... now its not.... i just want to know what i have too do to it too get it too work
14:24:30linux_manjugevaerts: I guess.. intially I by mistake did ./tools/configure and make make zip in the svn checkout root
14:24:48linuxstblinux_manju: That will explain it then...
14:24:56linux_manjulinuxstb: Llorean gevaerts Trying with a fresh checkout...
14:24:57linuxstbIt would have corrupted the makefiles
14:25:09linux_manjuSorry to eat up you people valuable time...
14:25:14LloreanGartral: And we've told you. You should go ask some experts, somewhere where they're supposed to know about that software.
14:25:44LloreanGartral: Possibly the reason you were given bad information is that you asked someone who has no reason to know about the software, and they were simply wrong.

14:29:57linuxstblinux_manju: Then the 1g2g bootloader is no help to you - the newer ipods have completely new hardware...
14:30:05BigBambiI would like to point out again, that the version listed on the wiki IS AVAILABLE FROM THE WINFF DOWNLOAD PAGE
14:30:12BigBambiIt is not difficult to find
14:30:35Gartralall i want too know is if anyone knows of an irc channel that IS a support channel for winff.... the sooner i get that, the sooner i stop bugging you, and waisting everyones time, right?
14:30:38B4gderok let's drop the winff subject now and return to rockbox
14:30:45BigBambiI went to the extreme lengths of going to then clicking download, then scrolling down
14:31:04linux_manjulinuxstb: But I have an Ipod Nano.. which says.. manufacturing date as 2007 and 2nd Gen
14:31:12linuxstblinux_manju: Yes...
14:31:42linuxstbThe 1g2g bootloader is for the original 1st and 2nd generation ipods - i.e. those made about 5 years ago
14:32:06linux_manjulinuxstb: So which one ... ?
14:32:14LloreanGartral: You're on the edge of getting yourself removed. There are dozens of search engines out there, make use of them. But stop asking off topic questions, because it really sounds like someone's going to lose their patience with you.

14:34:50Gartralim sorry if im ticking people off... but please try too feel for other people too...
14:34:53LloreanGartral: 1) We don't know. 2) Even if we did know, that doesn't make it okay for you to ask after being told the channel rules forbid it.
14:36:11linuxstblinux_manju: The (first) problem with the 2nd gen Nano is the firmware is encrypted (it wasn't on earlier ipods), so we can't a) run our own code; b) reverse-engineer the original firmware.
14:37:29linux_manjulinuxstb: So I should I forget / sacrifice rockbox ??... Please.. Please.. tell me a workaround ?
14:37:48BigBambilinux_manju: There is no work around

14:49:25BigBambiYeah, I was just checking out the xml from the wiki vs the included
14:49:26LloreanBigBambi: The resolutions on the old ones were based on the old requirements of mpegplayer being a multiple of 16, for example.
14:49:44LloreanAnd the bitrates for targets I didn't own were more or less "I *guess* this might be good"

14:51:27LloreanBigBambi: My updated ones were going to use a constant quantizer instead of a target bitrate. More consistent quality (in theory), and if I picked a good one, probably some filesize savings over the old presets anyway.

14:59:49JdGordonalthough... it does hap[pen so infrequently:D

16:45:14markundo you need to switch from button mode to scroll mode?
16:45:31JdGordonno, this is combiing buttons
16:45:47markunperhaps we could do it for the Gigabeat and H10 as well
16:46:26markuncan I see your code?
16:46:57JdGordonyeah, 1 min
16:47:29JdGordonare their sliders split into multiple button areas?
16:47:57markunthe gigabeat has 13 separate sensors which form the pad
16:48:05markundon't know about the H10
16:48:21markunI wrote a driver to get a value from -6 to 6 for X and Y for the Gigabeat
16:48:43JdGordonI'm using the actions system to do it, not the button driver
16:49:15markunok, even better I guess
16:49:25markunless code for to implement in the button driver
16:50:15JdGordonits using top->center transiion and center-> bottom from scroll up, and vice vera for scroll down
16:50:21JdGordonor other way around...
16:50:24JdGordonone of them ;p
16:52:39JdGordoncant use the center button for anything though which isnt very nice... lots of accidental actions if you stop/start in the middle

16:55:11markunthe way it works in the OFs of the meizu and gigabeat is this:
16:55:32markunif you press and release within a timeout it's a keypress
16:55:51markunif you press and hold it past a timeout it's a keypress with repeats
16:56:05markunif you press and move within the timeout it's some slide action
16:56:49markunworks quite well I think. The only thing is that you miss the initial keypress if you want to press with repeats
16:57:04JdGordonim fairly positive that once one of the touchscreen targets are properly working someone wil come along with a patch to do just that

17:25:34BigMacHey, have a quick question about the microSD card in the sansa e200 line
17:25:44BigMacI have a 4 gb microSD card
17:26:02BigMacWill it be readable?
17:26:09Tuplanollawhy wouldn't it be?
17:26:10scorche|shi dont see why it wouldnt be
17:26:18B4gderbut not with the OF
17:26:23Mode"#rockbox -o B4gder " by ChanServ (ChanServ@services.)
17:26:30BigMacthe FAQ jumps from 2gb cards to the SDHC
17:26:35BigMacso I wasn't quite sure
17:27:37BigMacAnyone recommend the sansa? I am looking for a flash based DAP with a large amount of space and has to be able to play ogg
17:27:54BigMacAnd the e280+4gb seems to fit
17:28:04LambdaCalculus37BigMac: Just remember that the Sansas have a new "v2" model which is unsupported by Rockbox.
17:28:18LambdaCalculus37In other words: Rockbox doesn't work on the v2 Sansas.
17:28:29BigMacSo make sure it is a v1 first?
17:28:35pondlifeI thought 4GB would have to be SDHC... am I out of date?
17:28:51B4gderthey are hc
17:29:05BigMacI am pretty sure is is just a regular microSD, nut not sure
17:29:06B4gdertheoretically they don't need to be but I've never seen any non-hc 4gb ones
17:29:24LambdaCalculus37BigMac: The firmware version number is a dead giveaway.
17:29:31BigMacI bought it for my phone which only supposrts up to the 4gb
17:29:46LambdaCalculus37If it reads something like 01.xx.xx, it's a v1. If it's 03.xx.xx, it's a v2.
17:30:00BigMacWell I wouldn't know that until I bought it, right LambdaCalculus37?
17:30:43LambdaCalculus37BigMac: If you buy it new, you're most likely going to get a v2.
17:30:50LambdaCalculus37But you can try eBay.
17:31:06BigMacThats is what I was planning on, but I will check ebay
17:31:34BigMacon the plus side I will probably donate my gigabeat to rockbox since that is the reason I got it in the first place
17:31:43LambdaCalculus37BigMac: What model Gigabeat?
17:31:49BigMacF40 I believe
17:32:05LambdaCalculus37Why not keep it? It's always good to have at least two targets. :)
17:32:17BigMacI am tired of hdd daps
17:32:19LambdaCalculus37If one goes on the blink, you have an extra one.
17:32:20B4gderyeps, for that mini-tower!
17:33:23BigMacI like the f40, but it just doesn't suit the times I listen to it
17:34:40BigMacSo I figure since the SOC is coming up, might as well give a budding programmer a target to work on
17:35:29BigBambi_Very generous of you :)
17:35:43BigMacThe least I could do
17:35:52*amiconn wonders why the v2 firmware versions start with 03.
17:36:08BigMacHave been using rockbox for enough time where it would be inconsiderate to me to do otherwise
17:36:10gevaertsDon't give it to a SoC student... They get paid for rockbox work :)
17:36:26B4gderonly the c200 and e200 v2 firmares are v3
17:36:39*amiconn thinks it might be actually a v3, with v2 being some interim dev hardware that was never released
17:36:58B4gderthey have v1 and v4 as well
17:37:00BigMacbut they would have to buy the target otherwise gevaerts
17:37:43gevaertsBigMac: sure. Most of us have to buy :). I hope you'll at least have them pay the shipping costs...
17:38:22BigMacHaha perhaps, but it wouldn't bother me either way
17:38:35BigMacYou guys don't make any money off of this really
17:38:41*gevaerts pretends to be a GSoC student
17:38:55BigMacStart with the coding and I will start with the sending
17:39:12BigMacI am a wee bit ashamed though
17:39:13*B4gder mostly just talk
17:39:22gevaertsActually I already have a gigabeat F. Wouldn'tknow what to do with a second one
17:39:26BigMacmy build is like 3-2 months old
17:39:33BigMacMate them gevaerts, duh
17:40:07gevaertsI first have to write USB host support to be able to do that :)
17:40:27BigMacI built it with all the patches I liked
17:40:51BigMacand now am not even sure which are depreciated, which are integrated, and what are still ongoing
17:42:00BigMacShould find that out one day

19:13:39pondlifeThe best performance test would be with everything hitting the disk at once...
19:14:03jhMikeSif contention for the disk is irrelevent, then this bug isn't really a mutex problem
19:14:29jhMikeSsince a mutex is basically an immediate return if not already claimed by another thread

21:57:15John64is flac a low overhead codec?
21:57:30John64ok, this rockbox is looking heathier already
21:57:36Buschelwe know that mpc decodes @24MHz + 2.5MHz (dsp/i2s), flac at even less (~12MHz + 2.5MHz)
21:57:52John64is there a way i can set the clock rate manually while playing
21:58:08earHurtsanyone know who fixed the ipod scroll accell? It works better than mine did
21:58:11John64that is insane btw, flac is my favorite codec, and why i don't like the apple firmware
21:58:31linuxstbearHurts: Hi - welcome back ;) I think that was jhMikeS's implementation that finally got in.
21:58:37BuschelearHurts: the scrollwheel accel in svn?
21:58:49earHurtsyes, in the latest build
21:59:03John64it works wonderfully
21:59:06earHurtshi linuxstb ;)
21:59:15Buschelbasic idea came from jhMikeS (sansa), I've adapted it for iPods
21:59:21BigBambi_John64: FLAC uses very little CPU to decode, but has to hit the disk more often
21:59:29John64right, makes sense
21:59:31earHurtsJohn64: yes, it does. I had submitted a patch that worked not as well
21:59:42BigBambi_But overall is pretty efficient
21:59:57John64what frequency is required for mp3/aac?
22:00:05earHurtsI am interested in browsing the svn to see the code, but how do I browse svn with a web browser?
22:00:18BigBambi_John64: Depends on DAP - I think there is a wiki page somewhere
22:00:20Buschelmp3 needs about 40MHz overall (no WPS)
22:00:50LearBuschel: Regarding the accessory presence detection, using the same place as the headphone detection makes sense, imho. That means the button tick task.

22:15:39John64in terms of audio quality and rockbox compatibility what is the best device to get?
22:16:07LinusNJohn64: i would say iriver H100 series
22:16:37linuxstbI would rate the H100 quite low for sound quality - I find it very noisy.
22:16:55*amiconn still didn't get used to the ipod scrollwheel acceleration :(
22:17:09LinusNamiconn: you're too old :-)
22:17:14amiconnIt overshoots a lot for me...
22:17:19BigBambi_For features and rockbox compatibility I'd say iriver H1x0, but much as I love it I'm not sure I would say it was best for sound quality
22:17:47LearWith high impedance earphones, noise isn't a problem, in my experience.
22:18:02linuxstbJohn64: If you want a hard disk target, I would say the Gigabeat F series is excellent value for money.
22:18:05John64well, i care more about audio quality than compatibility then i guess
22:18:09amiconnThe old 1st/2nd Gen without scrollwheel acceleration are a lot easier to operate imo
22:18:11John64i will check that out
22:18:12ZincAlloyI still think a scrollwheel is a bad way to navigate an mp3 player...
22:18:16BigBambi_It isn't bad at all, having said that
22:18:29PaulJamsame for h300. i was a little bit disappointed when i got some in ear headphones.
22:18:29*bluebrother was not impressed by the sound quality of the Ipod compared to the h100
22:18:39BigBambi_The F is nice too, but misses recording and radio
22:18:48BigBambi_bluebrother: I had already dismissed them in my head :)
22:18:54linuxstbbluebrother: Which ipod? The 5g (and I assume later) is significantly better than my Color.
22:18:55John64is the irivier h3xx series alright for sound? I hate the sound on my iPod
22:19:03John64i have a 5.5g
22:19:04amiconnNo overshooting, and yet fast enough for all my lists. The only disadvantage of that wheel driver is that it doesn't handle repeat, hence no dynamic wrap-protection in lists
22:19:04bluebrotherI only know the mini.

22:22:19BigBambiI'm not fond of the wheel on the e200 - I find it awkward to press the surrounding buttons, but I hate the faux-cross on the gigabeat F. The beast cross is nice though

22:23:48BigBambiNot, not anymore
22:23:52John64so sound is good on the GB F
22:24:10BigBambiJohn64: I think so, but it all depends on ears and earphones
22:24:13linuxstbJohn64: How would you rate your 5.5g?
22:24:32BigBambiI have decent earphones (sennheiser cx95), but cloth ears :)
22:24:32John64compared to my HDA laptop
22:24:53John64i have Denon over ear headphones which i can pick up every little thing from the ipod
22:25:14John64my desktop has an X-Meridiand which sounds infinitely better than the ipod
22:25:18BigBambiI suspect you will notice something from most DAPs then
22:25:38ZincAlloyfor sure!
22:26:16John64when are they going to make a dap that caters to the audiophile. all i as for is a good audio, flac support and decent battery. It could be 2lbs and the size of a brick for all i care
22:26:51John64good news though, rockbox is working again :D
22:26:55scorche|shthe H100 is as close as you get for that sort of thing...SPDIF..
22:27:14BigBambiYes, optical + line in + out on the H100 is nice
22:27:37John64wow. now, do they make pocket sized battery powered dacs? :P
22:27:43BigBambiThat is
22:27:55BigBambiI misread dac for dap
22:28:23linuxstbJohn64: Do you know about ?
22:28:40John64yep, i am a member but i don't really care for that site much
22:28:49markunJohn64: with sensitive earphones you can hear noise from the HDD in the audio coming from the Gigabeat
22:28:58John64oh :(
22:29:01John64that is a deal breaker
22:29:11markunyou'll find that with many DAPs
22:29:16BigBambiI really think you will struggle with any DAP though
22:29:29*bluebrother starts to get annoyed by the repeated port requests in the tracker
22:29:38BigBambiThe screeching noise on reading the flash in the e200 for instance
22:29:41John64i get that in my ipod
22:29:43markunbluebrother: ipod classic?
22:30:01bluebrothermarkun: various.
22:30:03*bertrik must be deaf for stuff like that

22:31:39John64how clean is rockbox code in overall design. i want to start playing around with more low level code (java programming spoils you)
22:31:47BigBambigevaerts: I hope you transcoded up from 32kbps for better quality?
22:31:57gevaertsBigBambi: of course :)
22:32:03BigBambiJohn64: I guess that depends on what part of the code
22:32:06John64is rockbox supposed to make the ipod sound better :P
22:32:08vedJohn64: amazing how many ifdefs can ppl make in one function :DDD
22:32:09BigBambiBest just dive in!
22:32:09bertrikJohn64: quite clean IMO, but there's a lot of #ifdefs
22:32:26John64preprocessors don't scare me
22:32:52markunJohn64: some people claim rockbox sounds better, but if you measure it the produce the same sound
22:32:53gevaertsActually, they are time-shifted realaudio things, often 40 or 50 kbps
22:32:55veddo{} while(0) tricks on daily basis? :)
22:32:56bertrikmosquitoes don't scare me, but they are surely annoying
22:32:57scorche|shJohn64: objective tests show that they sound pretty much identical, but people say it sounds better (as well as the opposite)...however Rockbox for sure has many more ways of adjusting the sound to your taste
22:32:59BigBambiJohn64: MP3 decoders are much of a muchness, and we can't do anything about the hardware, but I guess the 5 band parametric equalizer can help
22:33:44John64well, for one the crossfeed makes sure i don't vomit from dizzyness

22:38:49*gevaerts suspects he probably won't like that song, even with crossfeed
22:39:11amiconnAfaiu, crossfeed should reduce perceived stereo width a bit, but for me it doesn't seem to do that, and it produces muffled, imprecise sound instead..
22:39:14whoever_hi together. I have a small problem. my filesystem of my iAudio is destroyed (ehm - not completly destroyed - just a bit)! so i want to formate my iAudio. does this function after that? can I just create the old folders and rockbox run again?
22:39:21whoever_sorry for my english, but I'm german
22:39:29markunit's a Badly Drawn Boy song called "This Song"
22:40:01vedsuspicious title
22:40:02*amiconn actually uses *increased* stereo width (just the opposite-phase thing) when listening with earphones
22:40:07*gevaerts grabs his web browser
22:40:26ZincAlloyamiconn, crossfeed works pretty good for me. I can localize the music in front of me instead of inside my head
22:41:29amiconnYeah, it seems it's supposed to do that too, but for me it doesn't do that at all
22:41:30markunZincAlloy: unfortunately it's impossible to make one which work the same for everybody since it depends on the shape of your head and ears etc
22:42:04amiconnThe localisation with and without crossfeed is exactly the same for me, just the sound quality degrades with it enabled
22:42:06ZincAlloyamiconn: increasing the stereo width should make everything sound even more imprecise. especially things in the center of the stereo mix..
22:42:24amiconnBut then, in-head localisation is no problem imho...
22:42:52amiconnZincAlloy: Yeah, but it doesn't, or at least much less than the frequency-dependent crossfeed
22:43:07ZincAlloyI think it is. that's not how a stereo mix is meant to be heard
22:43:46*amiconn prefers speakers over head-/earphones anyway, ond only uses the latter if speakers are impracticable
22:44:21amiconnWhat puzzles me though is that crossfeed doesn't have the effect it should have *at all* for me...
22:44:48markunamiconn: you just have a difficult head to model in such a simple filter :)
22:45:51amiconnWell, what I would expect if the filter isn't ideal for the individual head is that it has at least a partial effect in the right direction
22:45:58ZincAlloyamiconn: just trying to widen things up.... I think it sounds pretty horrible compared to 100% stereo width. 100% on headphones is extremely wide anyway...

23:16:33markunbut we always use 44100Hz
23:16:52markunis this in preparation for dynamic samplerates?
23:18:15ZincAlloydynamic sample rates?
23:18:17John64what does data abort at 00065D70 (0) mean?
23:18:24***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
23:18:26amiconnWe use 44100Hz for music playback, yes. But most DACs are capable of multiple sample rates, and at least some targets allow to select sample rate
23:18:38amiconnNot used for music, but e.g. for midi, or doom
23:18:51LloreanZincAlloy: Several of our players should be able to playback at multiple sample rates rather than having to resample with our somewhat low quality resampler.
23:19:01amiconnI'd like to see multiple sample rates supported for music playback as well

23:20:03amiconnThe transition cannot be gapless of course, but then a sample rate change within an album is extremely unlikely

23:21:38amiconnSound quality for non-44100Hz files would improve noticeably, I think, even icompared to a better resampler than we have

23:24:49John64well, i should get back to studying, thanks everyone for the help, things are a lot more clear now
23:25:25ZincAlloybye, John!
23:25:40markunJohn64: hope to see you soon again
23:26:16John64you will, i am really liking the progress rockbox has made, i am going to keep it on my player this time i think. Hopefully i can wrap my head around the code pretty quickly too
23:26:42markungood luck with your studies

23:50:20LambdaCalculus37moos: Damn good timing, I say. :)
23:52:10moosmine came a bit too early and then did stay in deep sleep until jhMikeS made it up again ;)
23:52:19scorche|shamiconn: do you think Berlin is still an option, or should we just go with Sweden again?
23:52:55LambdaCalculus37moos: The GigabeatSInfo wiki page mentions an nk.bin file in the source that does not allow dual booting, but can run Rockbox.
23:53:18BigBambiLambdaCalculus37: You want dual booting for now
23:53:34LambdaCalculus37BigBambi: Of course. :)
23:53:48LambdaCalculus37Let me get my beast.
23:53:58moosLambdaCalculus37: I don't use OF at all then no need for me, but I guess dualboot is availiable
23:54:01amiconnscorche: It's an option, but somehow we need a decision
23:54:35BigBambimoos: I was thinking of USB (crippled as it is in the OF) for now
23:55:09scorche|shamiconn: you think you could put out a mail to the list similar to Bagder's and perhaps say a bit about the area/location?
23:55:58moosBigBambi: yeah still depending of it for now like others software USB targets, let's hope in our USB stack. (I don't use my beast yet...)

23:56:02jhMikeSwell, it locks up when plugging USB so I suppose that's progress :p
23:56:11mooshehe :)
23:57:37LambdaCalculus37Well, I plugged in via USB and got a "Connected" screen, but no devices are showing up in Linux.
23:57:52r0rshachdo you need to format the drive?
23:57:54BigBambiLambdaCalculus37: Of course not
23:57:59BigBambiLambdaCalculus37: It is MTP crap
23:58:11gevaertsLambdaCalculus37: try lsusb (as root)
23:58:18r0rshachewww mtp
23:58:35LambdaCalculus37gevaerts: Yes, it shows up.
23:58:42BigBambiLambdaCalculus37: you can mount it with fuse (or whatever it is called), but you still have to reconnect it after every operation (for me anyway)
