00:42:41davidbarryThanks for the help. Checked the manual and it says to hold down the menu key as I plug it in but it doesn't do anything, just connects like normal.

01:27:22Unhelpfulkugel: *with* the height/2 change, yes, since it's a size basically determined per-target at compile-time
01:28:11Unhelpfuli'd like to know what other people think of the height/2 change, and i think i might like how i did the center margin change better, but i haven't looked at your patch yet.
01:29:23Unhelpfuli'd rather make +0 == sides-touch-center, since -40 will (i think) not work the same on all targets. also, it makes the option value "meaningful", since it becomes an offset from edges of the center cover.
01:31:02 Join tvelocity [0] (
01:31:26 Quit gromit` (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
01:33:36Unhelpfulalso, if resize is optional, should we then keep the check for cover.WxH.bmp?
01:33:45kugelUnhelpful: so, I updated
01:34:19kugelUnhelpful: from my experience height/2 looks very good (on my e200)
01:35:03Unhelpfulit looks good on my S60 as well, though i think the effect is really designed with landscape layout in mind.
01:35:30kugel" make +0 == sides-touch-center" sounds reasonable to me, I haven't looked into it though
01:35:52kugelUnhelpful: I imagine it looks even better on landscape
01:36:25Unhelpfulwell, it was roughly at that on the largest landscape targets, if you used the suggested 100x100 size
01:36:41kugelwhy do you think -40 will not work on all targets? have you tested?
01:37:39kugelI admit I haven't tested on every target, but those 2-3 seem to behave similar (iirc)
01:37:43Unhelpfulno, but i've looked at how the center margin adustment is applied
01:38:26kugelI think every value is rather arbitary without telling what it's about
01:38:51kugelartificial even
01:40:13Unhelpfulwell, it should, as i read it, be in screen pixels, and it's based on the average (not maximum) album art width. that alone makes it pretty hard to figure out what "0" means in the current scheme.
01:40:34Unhelpfulmaking "0" == a max-width album in center touches the side albums seems very sensible, to me.
01:41:13Unhelpfuland leaving things not clearly defined if you're not using the resizer doesn't bother me, since they're really not clearly defined right now.
01:41:26kugelsure, 0 suggest that there's no margin between center and side slides
01:41:50kugeland it's far from that
01:43:37kugelUnhelpful: so, basically, you may decide. I can have a look into putting that into FS #8335, or you do it yourself with your pending pf patch
01:46:26Unhelpfuldoes anybody else have an opinion to contribute here? i generally get the impression that PF is mostly considered a demo/toy at this point, so that changes in how it behaves might be a little more allowable than in other areas... but if i commit what we're talking about, people already using PF are going to see it change, because the meaning of a config value will change.
01:47:10kugelI don't change the meaning, I only change the default value
01:47:19kugel(with the current patch)
01:47:40Unhelpfulwhich is the major thing in favor of the way you do it, in my mind
01:48:07 Join Acksaw [0] (
01:48:12Unhelpfulbut, on the other hand, the value doesn't have a "meaning" that can be readily understood by the user, right now, and it might be worth breaking configs to change that.
01:48:17kugelwell, it doesn't change that the meaning is unclear to the user
01:48:48kugelI'd surely welcome to make this setting a understandable one
01:49:47kugelbut on the other side, maybe the user doesn't care about what it means, and just pick one that fits without thinking about
01:50:10Unhelpfuland for those users, the change i propose is A Bad Thing.
01:51:41kugelnot too bad though
01:52:04kugelhe'll need to reset it once, that doesn't hurt much imo
01:53:52*kugel just notices that task is already a year old
01:54:20Unhelpfuli'm inclined to agree, and after that, it's set in a way that makes sense for everybody. i'm going to be too busy to really work on it for a few hours to come, anyway. i think it would probably be reasonable to commit it if there aren't complaints by then... but then, i don't expect to be hearing much from other devs on *anything* tonight, and that makes me a little nervous about just tossing it in.

02:30:33*kugel thought it was sysfont
02:31:59JdGordonyeah, its smaller
02:32:10JdGordoncurrently its hardcoded bmp
02:35:01Unhelpfulthen i definitely approve of making it a configurable, loadable bmp. :D
02:35:47JdGordoncan you think of any chars you might want in this smaller font than :-% ?
02:36:05JdGordonive got it limited to 7 chars which im hoping is enough
02:36:51Unhelpful7 besides the digits 0-9?
02:38:00JdGordonI'm alloweming themers to add up to 7 chars they want to the end of the bmp strip, but if its just going to b those 3 i might just hardcode it
02:39:08 Join CellKill [0] (
02:39:40kugelJdGordon: you never know what language specific separators and stuff people might use
02:39:49Unhelpfuli can't honestly imagine what else they would do with it, unless you give them a full font, and that's just multifont done badly :/
02:39:54 Part CellKill
02:41:16JdGordonyeah, this is poor mans multifont untill its done right
02:41:34JdGordonwhich is why I want to limit it to almost no chars other than numbers
02:41:56Unhelpfulright, then it has a very clear, specific use, and people won't be tempted to do multifont on top of it.
02:42:21Unhelpfulyou might want to add / to your list of other chars, just to make it usable for very tiny track/totaltracks display
02:42:40kugelyou think people would care less about multifont with that, i.e. delaying the introduction more?
02:43:01kugelbtw: I've had a small look at a proper multifont, and I see a possibility
02:43:07JdGordonor the oposite could happen... that people really want multifont because of it
02:43:17kugelbut I need to understand that lru thing more before
02:43:33JdGordonthe only thing stopping multifont is the fontcache...
02:44:06JdGordonna, bugger that lru stuff... get a working fontcache first, then get it working with lru
02:44:13JdGordonalthough it shouldn be that hard
02:44:16kugelyea, the font cache is a lru (least recently used) buffer
02:44:17***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
02:44:51kugeland that puts the most recently used glyphs into ram
02:45:36kugelI see no reason why that buffer couldn't hold glyphs of multiple fonts. and the struct already contains a pad-to-4byte-boundary member which could be used for the index
02:46:11Unhelpfuli'd like to see more sensible tagging with multifont, ie, let users specify up to N fonts in WPS, which are numbered in order, rather than this business of fonts per-context. but, then, i imagine the primary use of multifont being to have more than one font in WPS, not a different font for menu, browser, wps, etc, etc.
02:46:20kugelJdGordon: I don't understand. the font cache is lru. so you need to have it working with that, otherwise it's not proper
02:46:35kugelthe rejected multifont had a lru for each userfont
02:46:51JdGordonkugel: multifont has to deal with different sized proportiaonal fonts as well as square glyphs...
02:47:01JdGordonall in one buffer
02:47:16JdGordonand I mean getting it working first with a huge buffer (as a demo) before fixing it properly
02:47:25kugelwell, the viewport contains the font number, and that's the same as the index in the lru struct
02:48:03JdGordonUnhelpful: yeah, I image if it ever happens fonts in the w will be like the current bmp tagging.loading
02:48:06 Quit thegeek (Read error: 54 (Connection reset by peer))
02:48:18kugelso if you have the font number from the viewport the glyph of the correct userfont will be used automatically
02:48:53kugelJdGordon: having it working in a huge buffer is basically what the old multifont did
02:48:58UnhelpfulJdGordon: any opinion on our pictureflow discussion, by the way?
02:49:41JdGordonUnhelpful: no, i wasnt awake enough to follow it... im sure whatever you decide is fine :)
02:50:12JdGordonkugel: having a massive buffer (but a single one) which could then be changed to lru and much smaller is completyly different to the old patch
02:50:32Unhelpfulfair enough. i'll give people until things slow down here to yell about it. reverts are always possible if people hate it.
02:51:14kugelwell, inventing another buffer for temporary use sounds like a unneeded detour to me
02:51:36kugelwhy don't make it work with lru in the first place if that's the requirement to get it in?
02:52:01JdGordonthats the way my brain works... get a demo/proof-of-concept working, then fix it
02:52:12JdGordonall this while its out of tree thouhg...
02:52:40JdGordonalso, becuase if you have bugs you dont kow if its lru not working, or something else

03:16:49Lloreangevaerts: Video support on the same level as audio support doesn't really mean a significant visible change though. Other than playlist support, current video support is pretty transparent since you still just click on them.
03:17:13LloreanThe impression I get is that for a major-version bump, it needs to be a change big enough that *everyone* sees it, like a new UI.
03:17:16kugelJdGordon: btw: that feature sounds like that what the sandisk of has for their radio screen

03:19:00kugeloh nice
03:19:28kugelthat's great news
03:19:46keanucurious about how to get the (of course, incomplete) rockbox firmware on it though
03:20:07Unhelpfulkugel: what about cleaning up the AA fonts patch?
03:20:11kugelwell, it's all in svn :)
03:20:21JdGordonhmm.. seen as this is specifically for numbers.. should I add a "max chars" option and always right justify the drawn number?
03:20:23keanuyeah, but i can't find info on it :P

03:21:02Unhelpfulis that really the only commit blocker for it? hm. :/

03:22:06kugelkeanu: there's "some" information, but certainly not enough
03:22:10LloreanUnhelpful: Kugel described it as having many bad variable names (variables with the same name doing different things in different places, or different names for the same functino)
03:22:24keanukugel, yeah
03:22:26LloreanI haven't looked at it, but I'd say cleanup *is* a blocker if it doesn't meet decent standards.
03:22:58kugelLlorean: well, it's basically having the same variable names as the existing font rendering code
03:23:10Lloreankugel: Unless getting Rockbox on the Fuze is drastically different than the other V2s, it looks like there's enough info in the wiki
03:23:24Lloreankugel: So the current code has this problem already?
03:23:32kugelanyway, I'd surely volunteer for the cleanup, but that mpegplayer bug is still a bit over my head
03:24:06Unhelpfuli haven't looked at the rockbox end of it. i'd like convttf, or whatever the util was, take the actual output line height on the command line. i think that's doable, since it seems to be a matter of what to do with some values that come from freetype
03:24:38kugelLlorean: it's basically like that: I'm not able to fix the mpegplayer bug, because I cannot really compare the old font code and the aaf one because I understand *neither* of both
03:24:40keanuLlorean, Didn't notice that it was in the SansaV2 article - I was looking in the SansaFuze article for the bootloader install section
03:25:08kugelbut there's definitely some more or less obvious similiarities

04:38:36Unhelpfulputting in *either* resizer will make things a bit messy for a later merge of the greylib pictureflow, but not impossible

08:38:02Unhelpfulflash and execute-in-place is the exception i'm imagining?
08:38:05amiconnOn several targets where rockbox can be flashed there is an option to run rockbox directly from ROM (currently Archos Player, Ondio SP, and iriver H1x0)
08:38:46amiconnOriginally all archoses were capable of running rombox, but for the others rockbox became too large to fit in there
08:40:13Unhelpfuland i've probably made things fit a bit tighter now. i'm rather surprised by how much one more argument cost on the mono targets, though... but i didn't want the read_bmp_* argument list to vary across platforms :/
08:41:36amiconnA single extra argument usually doesn't cost much. On SH the exception is when you cross the "magic" limit of 4 (max. 32 bit) arguments
08:42:07amiconnThen gcc switches to using stackparms (up to 4 SH uses regparms)
08:43:08Unhelpfuland passing the format plugin bumped us to 5 in read_bmp_* :/
08:44:23***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
08:44:27amiconnHmm, for that, the increase is quite small
08:44:59*amiconn remembers when Slasheri added something to tagcache that bumped one function's number of parameters to 5
08:45:15amiconnThat caused +700 bytes on archos :\
08:45:42Unhelpfuli almost wonder if having the greylib plugin, which doesn't even build on mono, in core would cost less than adding the parameter. probably only on the SH targets, i would think.
08:47:19Unhelpfulif the greylib output_row function were in core, it could be selected via format, without the extra argument for the plugin pointer. which would save the tiny increase on SH, but probably increase everywhere else.
08:47:26amiconnThe greylib does build on mono - that's where it even originated
08:47:46Unhelpfulbut at present, the scaler, and output functions for it, do not

08:49:07Unhelpfuli'm also not entirely sure it could be made to work on mono. if the scaler is built in pluginlib for that, it would eat a good chunk of the plugin buffer.

08:50:44amiconn(2) There's always the possibility to get extra ram for data when stopping playback. On archos, some plugins which are too large for the plugin buffer even use that extra ram for code, by using the "overlay" loader
08:51:11amiconn(iirc rockboy, chessbox and zxbox atm)
08:52:27Unhelpfulre (1), i'd talked to kugel about that earlier - the scaler might be worth making conditional on something other than mono. if there's memory, dithered AA might very well be tolerable on mono, and greylib may be nice as well
08:52:49Unhelpfulor, if the dithered mono is really too awful for words, scaling in pluginlib
08:53:47amiconnI wonder what the cost (for plugins) would be if the scaler is just always put in the pluginlib for greylib use
08:54:41Unhelpfulthe pluginlib is linked static, isn't it? i'm fairly sure any functions or structures from it that aren't referenced by the plugin code are discarded.
08:55:23amiconnI don't know - does pictureflow need special support from the core to work (e.g. special fields that aren't present when compiling without AA)?
08:56:10amiconnUnhelpful: Yes, it's static, compiled with -ffunction-sections -fdata-sections, and plugins are linked with garbage collection, i.e. all unused sections are dropped
08:56:49Unhelpfulright now, pictureflow doesn't work at all without AA
08:57:48amiconnI know that it doesn't work atm - I would like to know if it could be made to work without extensive support in the core
08:59:22Unhelpfulyou'd need to either duplicate read_bmp_* in pluginlib, with scaler support, or add a pointer argument to them to pass them a scaler from pluginlib, if there's no scaler in core.
08:59:59Unhelpfulthere may be other ways, that's all i've thought of so far. the former would obviously have the least impact on core
09:00:00amiconnI'm more concerned about the database access involved in AA...
09:00:54Unhelpfulnow *that* i don't know about. i *think* you could port the search-for-AA-files into pluginlib without major changes, but i've only barely looked at it.
09:02:34amiconnWell, if it is possible, it might be worth making the bmp loader and scaler code shareable between core and plugins, so that mono targets can have a loader with smooth resizing and greylib support in plugins without affecting the core's binsize

09:06:56*amiconn is trying to understand the clever dither matrix trick
09:09:46Unhelpfulamiconn: it's based on how the bayer dither matrix is generated. each two bits of it come from one bit of the x and y coordinates. i worked out how to calculate and combine the two components, but then i realize that the Y component and the X component are the same, except that they X component sets both bits of each 2-bit pair, and the Y component only sets the higher bit.
09:10:32Unhelpfulbut multiplying the table value to get either component seemed very likely to be less cheap than setting both bits, and masking out the unwanted ones for Y

09:12:59Unhelpfulthe 3*N ^ 2*N pattern i figured out via trial-and-error by examining the 2x2 matrix, then tested to make sure it applied to the larger one
09:15:10amiconnSo you (effectively) replaced a shift->add->lookup sequence by 2*lookup->and->xor, and saved 240 bytes of the table this way. And if y is pre-dithered for each row, it's even faster
09:16:19Unhelpfuli assume it would be faster, i haven't actually tested that, though.

10:30:39fanta2I've got a question about pointers that I can't work out: I've got a pointer to a character array, and I'm trying to turn the first four bytes into an unsigned int. This is what I'm using: uint32_t filesizeremaining = *((uint32_t*)buffer) - sizeof(struct ptp_container_header);
10:31:14fanta2buffer contains 0x76F3, but no matter what I do filesizeremaining contains 12 (which happens to be the size of ptp_container_header)
10:31:24fanta2any idea what I'm doing wrong?
10:34:19Unhelpfulhave you tried outputting the value of *((uint32_t*)buffer) to verify that that's working correctly? also, beware endianness issues - you should know what byte-order the file format uses and use one of the available functions to convert that to host byte-order
10:35:58amiconnYou also need to be aware of alignment issues. Several architectures don't support reading integers unaligned. This applies to most rockbox targets (ARM, SH1). Coldfire supports it
10:36:14fanta2yep, logf says it's 30451 which equals 0x76F3; and the input data is coming over USB so it should be little endian same as my sansa e200
10:37:37fanta2could it be an alignment issue? I thought it'd just throw an error if I tried accessing unalligned data; besides I'm using the audio buffer which seems to be aligned correctly for unsigned integers
10:38:22amiconnWrong alignment would cause an exception (data abort on arm)
10:38:43amiconnBut I think that you got the pointer math wrong
10:39:26*Buschel slaps his forehead
10:39:30fanta2thought so, I had data abort issues too. I'm guessing my math's bad also, but I'm using the exact same code (*((uint32_t*)buffer)) to get the value through logf, and it works there
10:39:46Buschelouch, it was the repeat-option which was set to off :/
10:39:59amiconnHmm, probably not
10:40:30fanta2it might be worth noting that I'm using a fairly out of date SVN revision, but I don't think that'd be causing errors of this kind

11:04:29Unhelpfulamiconn: ran a test using both void-and-cluster and bayer dithering, with a 64x64 greyscale image as input, dithering down to 1-bit red-only. the results are pretty wretched all around, i can save some if you want to see.
11:09:54*amiconn had to google void-and-cluster dithering
11:10:11amiconnSo far I only knew ordered dither and error diffusion (f-s)
11:11:04amiconnOn a related matter, would it be difficult to make the smooth resize (for greylib) use different factors for X and Y, in order to account for non-square LCD pixels?
11:13:59*amiconn had an idea regarding PF on non-AA targets (and as an option on AA-enabled targets as well)
11:14:11 Join gregzx [0] (
11:14:37amiconnPF could be made to work without the database at all, just browsing folders like the rockbox core does if you're not using the db
11:15:43amiconnIt would rule out the optional alternative places for AA bitmaps and require them to be stored along the albums themselves when using that method, but it should be fairly simple
11:15:52Unhelpfulamiconn: it's just another way to generate an ordered dither matrix. it does a somewhat better job of avoiding obviously-visible patterns.
11:16:51Unhelpfuli considered trying larger AA, but really, much larger than 64x64 on m:robe 100 and you've no room in your WPS for anything else.
11:17:46Unhelpfulalso, for different factors per dimension, we'd really just have to tweak recalc_dimension
11:18:20Unhelpfulthe scaler itself knows absolutely nothing about selecting output size, it just scales each dimension up or down as requested

13:50:17Lloreangevaerts: I just think supporting a new SoC (not just individual players, but either a new architecture or a new integrated SoC) is a leap, rather than an incremental change, and might be better served by an intentional version number jump of some sort, rather than the incremental ones you get with the timed releases.
13:50:23gevaertsAnyway, my main point is that the difference between HWCODEC and SWCODEC audio is about the same as between mpeg support and loadable video codec support from the user point of view, so the questions are (a) was the 2->3 because of SWCODEC a correct decision, and (b) is video support "core" enough to warrant the same treatment?

13:52:02 Part j-noise
13:52:06Lloreangevaerts: Well, *my* point was more, if that's enough to warrant a major version increment I think significant leaps in hardware support (and potential targets, which is why I'm more focusing on SoCs than individual added players) probably should count too.
13:52:39itchegwas going to test it (havn't updated since before that commit) but thought it might be obvious
13:52:41LloreanThe current lean seems to be "Don't touch the major version number unless people won't be able to tell they're using the same software any more" and I don't really agree with that.
13:53:00gevaertsI agree. That would be a bit too extreme
13:53:24Lloreangevaerts: I think the move from "audio player" to "universal media player" is probably one of about 3 major version number changes we can get with the current potential definition.
13:53:40hammetpb22I am blind, so rockbox is only way for me, how to use all functions of my mp3 player. So i would be quite happy when it will work with E100 player. Unfortunately i don't have any programming skills so i can't work on ittarbUnhelpful
13:54:50Lloreangevaerts: I think the current definition would work for a GUIfied UI (probably including touchscreen support eventually, but that's probably not going to increment the number without the more GUI look), integration as a full media player, and possibly integrated text-to-speech. I think just about anything else qualifies as just a "minor improvement" in the overall scale, especially if judged in apparent impact from a user perspective.
13:55:16gevaertsI'm just not sure if a new SoC is change enough, because it may not be visible at all for non-devs. If you look at e.g. the AMS, from an end-user point of view, just more players from an already supported family get supported
13:55:21amiconnThe 1.x -> 2.0 transition was rather arbitrary afaik
13:55:52LloreanBut I think that if you only ever increment the minor version number (since ours is Major.Minor without any of that extra .Blah.blah.blah) it looks to a lot of people like you're maintaining, not developing.
13:56:23*gevaerts thinks
13:56:43gevaertsActually, changing the default theme is *very* visible...
13:56:50LloreanThis is true.
13:57:17*gevaerts isn't sure what this actually implies
13:57:21LloreanNot much. :)
13:57:34 Quit jhMikeS (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
13:57:57gevaertsIt *could* imply that we can bump major versions whenever we want by just committing a new background bmp :)
13:58:23LloreanI'm not trying to push for a major version bump soon or anything
13:58:37LloreanBut I think it might be wise to talk about it, so as a group everyone kinda fleshes out what page we're on for what it means.
13:58:44 Quit itcheg (" ajax IRC Client")
13:59:26LloreanSince, by-project, it can mean anything from "we bump it each (year / X iterations)" to "we bump it when we rewrite from the ground up, and it's not really the same program any more"
13:59:30LloreanAnd there's a lot of space between the two
14:00:16 Join jhMikeS [50] (n=jethead7@rockbox/developer/jhMikeS)
14:00:45gevaertsI think you're correct about there only being two or three foreseeable bumps with the current scheme, but I also think that since they are pretty independent it's likely that they won't occur together, so that gives us two major versions, and if you look at them, at least one of them is pretty long term, so you also look at several years
14:01:32gevaertsSo I expect that we could well be looking at about one major version per one or two years for the next four years, if we use this set of criteria
14:02:05*gevaerts thinks that this is fine for now, and we can look at other reasons for version bumps once we run out
14:02:57LloreanI dunno. I guess to me, "SWCODEC" in a "user-perspective" sense is really "Rockbox runs on more players" too.
14:03:37gevaertsYes, but different looking players from new manufacturers too
14:04:08*gevaerts thinks that an SWCODEC Archos port would warrant 4.0 :)
14:04:41pixelmathe AV300 one? ;)
14:04:53LloreanWell, TCC targets would be different-looking players from new-lines.
14:04:58gevaertsOnce it's supported, yes :)

14:07:58*linuxstb likes the simplicity of Ubuntu's version numbering - simply using Year.Month...
14:08:14gevaertsi.e. suppose for the sake of the argument that the Fuze and Clip wouldn't exist. Does e200v2 and c200v2 support deserve a major version bump?
14:08:54Lloreangevaerts: I think that's something that can be a gray area.
14:09:02gevaertsIt can indeed
14:10:09 Nick fxb__ is now known as fxb (
14:10:16LloreanBut I think that's something we can just decide on by a case for case basis anyway. The point I was just trying for is, I think when the project jumps in "size" for supported and potentially supported players, it's pretty significant.
14:11:52amiconnImo the swcodec addition was pretty significant because it bumped the number of supported targets from 6 to >20 (of which some are rather popular ones)
14:12:13amiconnIt also added the ability to play a ton of different formats
14:12:15Lloreanamiconn: But we were going to do 3.0 the first time when it merely added H100/H300

14:13:22gevaertsThe problem with new targets is that they may well tend to come in small numbers each time. Is a 25->27 jump in supported targets worth a major release?
14:13:36gevaertsOf course we can work around that by doing fewer minor releases :)
14:13:42Lloreangevaerts: I think it's almost more the number of potential targets it brings.
14:14:08amiconnWe need another 3-year wait to warrant bumping the major number ;)
14:14:33Lloreangevaerts: Once you've got one "Supported" and 3 or 4 on the verge of supported from the same base of work.
14:14:59gevaertsMaybe. We need to look at this on a case by case basis
14:15:08LloreanSo 4.0 adds some TCC target, and 4.1, 4.2, etc add one more each if it's ready.
14:15:13LloreanIt's definitely a case-by-case thing, yes.
14:15:38LloreanI was just trying to clarify whether Major needs to be strictly tied to features, or also possibly tied to "range of supported hardware"
14:15:51LloreanSince we're essentially an OS, I think "supporting more stuff" *is* a feature.

16:01:21Buschelkugel: hmm, never knew that...
16:01:40*Buschel wonders whether he never knew or just forgot
16:02:32kugelmaybe that's due to that the e200 scrollwheel support is basically seperate from the other buttons (e.g. it handles backlight seperately too)
16:02:41kugelI've only had a small look
16:03:20Buschelkugel: does the e200 also have issues with jerky gui @24MHz?

16:50:01BuschelI am in favour of 2 clocking speeds (24MHz + 80MHz) and boosting on GUI activity with timeout. To avoid conflicts with plugins/games/etc the GUI boost may not happen when having any plugin running.
16:50:15BuschelGeneric and easy way.
16:50:31soapSo can we expect just outright total dominance over Sansa v1 stock runtime now?

17:19:31kugelBuschel: I wonder if this is only for disk targets, or for PP in general
17:21:51Buschelkugel: I am not sure... You could easily test it via the disk_plugin after appliying the patch ;-)
17:22:32kugelBuschel: yea I could, I hoped for a quick answer though ;)
17:23:39Buschelkugel: but the positive effect to battery lifetime (which I expect and hope for) will be only visible with HDD targets.
17:24:00kugelBuschel: doesn't look like it brings something for my e200, given that ata-sd-pp.c isn't modified
17:25:56kugelBuschel: I think faster data transfers are a positive effect of its own even if it doesn't increase battery life
17:26:13crwlupgrading to current build with my e280 didn't go too well, got data abort at 00009364 (0) soon after resuming playback
17:26:47Buschelkugel: that's right. maybe I am too much focussed on batt life ;-)
17:28:35kugelBuschel: also, on flash we're boosting too on refilling the buffer, so there should be a battery life increase by having a shorter boost time
17:29:21 Join sqgl [0] (
17:30:27Buschelkugel: but cpu boosting is not that expensive as a running HDD. the savings should be minimal for non-HDD targets
17:31:11kugelnot that significat yea, but maybe not minimal too ;)
17:31:45Buschelkugel: ok, let's use your wording ;-)

17:42:53sqglDoes Rockbox running on Sansa C250 allow pitch-corrected variable speed playback?

17:45:17crwlsqgl, i guess all swcodec targets have pitch adjustment (someone correct me if i'm wrong)
17:45:34soapand Buschel, did I miss in the logs if you figured out why your previous 5.5 runtime tests failed?

17:48:48sqglOK, i learn two things in one go. thanks.
17:56:51sqglAnd maybe now you learn something:
17:57:10sqgli managed to dl the PDF manual aferall and it says it is not possible
17:57:43sqgl"it is not possible to change the pitch without changing the playback speed and vice-versa"
