00:45:34funmanBagder / kugel (about tmp variable) this is something with memory setup, someone told me why but i don't remember
00:47:04funmanwe have to read (or write?) to a specific memory location to set some memory address columns bits
00:50:22funmanthis C code assembles into the shortest way to read, and i don't think it's disgusting. we also could use inline asm for the same effect
00:52:18oboDoes it sound feasible for the PP6100 to have more than 12 GPIOs? I think it may have 16...
00:52:58gevaertsfunman: I think inline asm would be better
00:54:09funmangevaerts: what's wrong with using (void) to avoid a warning of gcc ?
00:54:20funmanobo: i think there is no limit .. :)
00:54:32*perfectdrug puts up FS #10329 SVG for the Philips GoGear HDD1620
00:55:28gevaertsfunman: in this case, nothing. I'm more worried about compilers suddenly starting to opimise this, and I also think an asm read is a bit more clear for this
00:56:19gevaertsit is volatile, but you never know...
00:57:03 Quit srnt (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:58:27funmanif it's volatile we know
00:58:39gevaertscompilers have bugs :)
00:58:41gevaertsI don't think it's a big issue though
00:59:19funmanI found a thread about this setting on , and they seem to use the exact same code. Still didn't find the exact explanation of how it modifies SDRAM settings
01:03:20funmanI love how using specific keywords on google always shows 10 or 20 pages, where half of them links to rockbox wiki/irc logs
01:03:46gevaertsMaybe the comment could be extended a bit. Saying that this is used to setup some DRAM controller things in an unknown way would still be better than what's there now
01:03:52funmangevaerts: i don't think it is a big issue also, but i want to fix the comment
01:04:21funmanwell i'd like to remove the unknown-ness as wel in one shot :)
01:04:31gevaertsindeed, why not? :)
01:05:09gevaertsWhile you're at it, maybe change the comment at (void)tmp; a bit as well, it looks a bit like it says that this particular line reads a value, which it doesn't
01:05:49funmanthis read 'programs the MODE register'
01:06:14Mikachu(void)*tmp; would do something, just (void)tmp; would at most read some random location in ram where gcc decided to put your variable
01:06:53gevaertsMikachu: indeed, but that's not important here
01:07:11gevaertsThe line is only there to tell gcc not to say that tmp is unused
01:07:26gevaertsIt's the line above that that actually does the magic

01:26:43gevaertsthe 0x2300*MEM bit
01:27:07funmanit comes from reverse engineering
01:29:36funmanperhaps 8MB and 2MB models use different settings, or they use the same settings but the column bits are not at the same position (row length=12, col length=8 for 8MB; row length=11, col length=8 for 2MB)

01:31:37vmxthese are ogg files btw
01:32:59funmanthis info comes from the pl172 datasheet, however the row length differ from 1 bit, but the setting is shifted 2 bits left (2MB or 8MB =(1<<2) * 2MB)
01:33:13vmxand i'm on latest trunk (about 1h ago)

04:51:07kamlurkerQuestion regarding using Rockbox on newer Sansa products: Does it allow audio playback during fast forward? Sandisk seems to be removing this feature from newer products. Perhaps it's a hardware limitation(?)
04:52:41hillshumkamlurker: Newer as in AMS Sansa?
04:55:35kamlurkerHmm. Not sure what AMS is. I'm thinking the Clip and eXXX series. Maybe they aren't really new but I'm using an m200(?) and those are new to me.
04:57:43hillshumthose sansas with an Austria Microsystems prossesor, so Clip, Fuze, c200v2, e200v2, and m200v4
04:58:44kamlurkerCurrently using the (ancient) M240 but have played with the Clip and exxx version and found that the audio is muted during fast forward.
04:59:39kamlurkerActually newer versions of the M240 I've purchased have eliminated this feature.
05:02:18hillshumI think RB doesn' play music during FF but I'm not sure
05:04:55kamlurkerThanks hillshum. That's too bad if it's true. I really like the feature of being able to FF through commercials and songs I don't like during podcasts, etc.

05:07:56Lloreankamlurker: Well, Rockbox is a community effort, and so far nobody who's wanted it has wanted it badly enough to put forth the effort to make it work.
05:10:51Unhelpfulwould this be a reasonably easy-to-add option via a setting that turns on timestretch (with user-defined settings) during FF, instead of "really" seeking?
05:12:08LloreanUnhelpful: Depends on how fast time stretch can really cope with.
05:12:24kamlurkerLlorean: Understood. I'm glad that Rockbox is has been developed for these devices. Many thanks to all involved. I was just curious about a pet feature that I find very useful.
05:12:56 Join froggyman [0] (
05:13:53LloreanUnhelpful: Really, it's usually not timestretched (in my experience) in such a feature. It just seeks like normal, and while playing 1/2 second or so of normal audio, then skipping to where the seek is at now, playing another 1/2 second or so, skipping to where the seek is, etc.
05:14:29Unhelpfulugh. that can't be nice with MDCT-based codes (which i believe is nearly all modern lossy ones?)
05:14:34LloreanIt's either restricted to very, very slow seeking (by seeking, then playing, then seeking) or very inaccurate (seeking while playing)
05:15:23 Quit efyx (Remote closed the connection)
05:15:28Unhelpfulsurely TDAC goes away if you lap the ends of an MDCT block with the wrong block :/
05:19:11LloreanI do agree it'd help especially accessibility quite a bit, since they don't have the option to just watch the OSD to know how far forward they've gone.
05:19:58Unhelpfuli'd be curious to see how it works out with timestretch... surely this is an option at least on beast.
05:20:43LloreanIt'd be interesting to uncap timetstretch and see how recognizable things are at whatever the maximum speed various players can keep up with it at.
05:23:49UnhelpfulLlorean: surely that depends on the codec... timestretch speedup with monkey's on high would challenge even the beast. ;)
05:24:22LloreanWell yeah, but everything tends to be calibrated around MP3 and WAV anyway.

16:27:39Unhelpfulkugel: paper sizes don't have a DPI. monitors do. the bitmap does because it is a raster image and we are specifying a display size in real-world units. i don't think there is a way around this.
16:28:20linuxstbPerform screendumps as vector images...
16:28:23kugelI apparently have my monitor DPI set to "Standard", so it seems wrong that images are scaled at this setting
16:29:48Unhelpfulkugel: the DPI of your display is a property of its physical size and its resolution. windows may call that "standard" but it is not standard across displays - mine is 115dpi, others will be something else.
16:34:14Unhelpfulyou can't make this work for everybody, not in PDF. it is a format for physical documents, and you won't get the images to be sized in monitor pixels without assuming a specific monitor DPI, which will be wrong for many users.

16:57:45gevaertsAnyway, as long as you have to just guess whether this is a USB speed problem or a disk speed problem, I don't think you can do much

16:59:16kugellet me hack SOURCES and SUBDIRS, I think I can manage to build test* only
17:00:26gevaertsyes and no. There is a ramdisk driver, and usb storage has a built-in ramdisk for testing, but both use memcpy() which is actually slower than UDMA4. Also, ramdisk size is (obviously) restricted, so it gets harder to test reliably
17:01:11gevaertsWhat I have done occasionally is just commenting out the disk accesses in usb_storage.c, but then you can only test with dd, no higher level tests...

17:47:42Mikachubut i think he didn't write the code
17:50:16animatorgeekif the irc log from when he committed is an indication, it's probably the code that someone else wrote and submitted last year
17:50:42animatorgeek(that is, the description sounds similar −− best for low bitrate and voice applications)
17:50:56Mikachui couldn't figure out how to actually use it
17:51:04animatorgeekYeah, me niether.
17:51:07Mikachuit looked in the code like it did something to the pitch screen but no luck
17:51:16LloreanIt also breaks mpegplayer
17:51:23animatorgeekThat's why I'm here. I activated it but it didn't change anything.
17:51:23*gevaerts has tested it
17:51:53gevaertsanimatorgeek: you need to set the "pitchscreen" (which probably isn't the right name anymore) to the right mode
17:52:02animatorgeekthe pitch ui is still exactly the same as before, both visually and functionally.
17:52:11kugelanimatorgeek: activate it in the playback settings, reboot, then go to the pitch screen
17:52:25animatorgeekI made the change in the settings and rebooted but there's no change
17:52:33kugelyou need to press a key to toggle through the pitchscreen modes
17:52:44gevaertsas documented in the manual ;)
17:52:57animatorgeekAh, that was it! Thanks!
17:53:33animatorgeekI thought it would change to exclusive stretch mode, not toggle between the modes
17:53:50LloreanIf the pitchscreen can be toggled, why does it need an on/off setting too?
17:53:59animatorgeekSorry, I guess I didn't catch that apsect when I looked at the manual.
17:54:04gevaertsremoving a feature? Unthinkable!
17:54:10gevaertsLlorean: it needs memory
17:54:45Lloreangevaerts: Shouldn't that be handled by restarting playback?
17:54:50animatorgeekI'm not clear what the disadvantage is to taking more memory. Does it reduce the ability to load apps or something? Or is it a power thing?
17:55:06Mikachuif less fits in the cache, you need to spin up more often
17:55:14Lloreananimatorgeek: Any free memory is used to buffer audio. On hard disk players this can improve battery life.
17:55:37animatorgeekAh, I see. I did a CFMod, though, so it'll impact me less, right?
17:55:49Lloreananimatorgeek: "on hard disk players"...
17:56:06animatorgeekRight :)
17:56:17kugelanimatorgeek: he wanted to say: Yes you're right :)
17:56:22animatorgeekSo yeah, I've got stretching working now. Awesome!
17:56:27*Llorean thinks time stretch should possibly be reverted for the moment, though.
17:56:40Mikachuit's not on the 3.3 branch right?
17:56:52LloreanMikachu: Right, but mpegplayer is still a major feature to be broken in SVN
17:57:09gevaertsLlorean: maybe. I'm not sure what the implications of restarting playback for this would be
17:57:11Mikachuis it broken even with the option off?
17:57:28kugelwe never claimed SVN is working code. We should wait a few days for someone to fix it
17:57:40gevaertskugel: we try to..
17:57:45Lloreankugel: Actually, we do claim SVN is usable code, that's why it's in the easy installer and everything
17:57:52gevaertsI agree that we can give it a few more days though
17:58:19kugelLlorean: and the installer says explicitely that a current build is not as stable?
17:58:48Mikachunot stable doesn't usually mean known to be broken
17:59:38animatorgeekSo is the timestretching something that it would be appropriate to submit a bug report for?
17:59:58Lloreananimatorgeek: For what?
18:00:00*gevaerts has no idea what animatorgeek means
18:00:01kugelyep, for mpegplayer we already have a bug report
18:00:15Mikachu"needs more intuitive interface"? :)
18:00:37LloreanBut yeah, I think we shouldn't leave mpegplayer broken for more than a day or two
18:00:38kugelMikachu: That's going to be closed with a RTFM note :)
18:00:39animatorgeekI thought I found a bug, but now I'm not so sure.
18:00:42gevaertsMikachu: that would be a feature request. We don't do those
18:00:51LloreanGetting a new feature in isn't as important as keeping our existing features working.
18:00:56animatorgeekIt looks like I was just misunderstanding the ui.
18:01:32Lloreangevaerts: I wonder if we could get that "Build" dropdown on Flyspray changed to a box where someone is asked to simply type in the revision.
18:01:43kugelLlorean: I'm not saying I like this situation or timestrech is more valuable, but we shouldn't get too nervous about it, particularly not with the upcoming release
18:02:06gevaertsLlorean: that would be useful, yes. Having bugs reported against 3.2 for features that were committed after 3.3 is a bit annoying
18:02:06Mikachuis roloing supposed to not save settings?
18:02:24Lloreangevaerts: Most people still think of everything after 3.2 but before 3.3 as "3.2"
18:02:29*Mikachu enables timestretch twice
18:02:29LloreanIt's hard to correct that thought
18:02:40kugelgevaerts: there's a "Current build (Which?)" option selectable
18:02:53Lloreankugel: No, there's a "Daily build (Which?)" option
18:03:16kugeloh, still better than release only though
18:03:24kugelpeople are just too lazy to check all boxes, this possiblity wouldn't help
18:03:28gevaertsanimatorgeek: do you expect you'd have misunderstood it if it weren't necessary to enable the feature in the settings?
18:03:39animatorgeekSo yes, I take it back. There _is_ a weirdness in the timestretch ui

18:04:03animatorgeekI'm okay with having to activate it and all that.
18:04:41animatorgeekIt works 99%, but the speed display doesn't accurately reflect the speed of playback when pitch gets shifted.
18:05:27animatorgeekThe speed display seems to reflect how much the stream needs to be slowed or sped up to compensate for the pitch change
18:05:48kugelthat's true
18:06:01animatorgeekLike I set pitch to 110% and speed automatically goes to 90%
18:06:18animatorgeekIt's intuitively illogical.

18:07:35Mikachuah, my problem was that my settings weren't saved even on long play shutdown if i did it too soon after changing the setting

18:09:25animatorgeekWhat I saw when I looked at it yesterday was just one or two sentences mentioning how to activate the ability to use timestretching, but I didn't looke through it thoroughly.
18:10:02kugelPrev/next: [...]or modify speed (in timestretch mode)
18:10:14kugelI agree the description of the pitchscreen keymaping is poor

18:10:47Mikachuoh there it is, didn't see it
18:11:16animatorgeekAnyway, I have no problem with how the controls are currently set up. It's just that two numbers are displayed on the tmestretching screen but they seem to have different basic assumptions.
18:11:39gevaertsanimatorgeek: the problem with "intuitive" controls is that what's intuitive for one person is horrible and impossible to use for another
18:11:54animatorgeekThe "speed" readout accounts for stretching but the "pitch readout doesn't.
18:12:20Mikachuanimatorgeek: i think if you increase pitch on the timestretch mode, it will lower the speed so _only_ the pitch is increased
18:12:38animatorgeekgevaerts: that's true. I wish there were a way to focus test this.
18:12:54animatorgeekMikachu: that's true. I like that it does that.
18:13:12kugelMikachu: you can also change speed only
18:13:58animatorgeekI just would like "pitch" to represent the actual relative pitch, and speed to represent the actual relative speed.
18:14:31kugelthat's what's happening
18:14:55animatorgeekSo I guess my beef is with how the "speed" readout displays its info.
18:14:56kugelyou just can't change pitch without affecting playback speed (not in rockbox, at least)
18:14:56Mikachuwhen you increase the pitch, it plays at the same speed, but the speed readout says 70% or so
18:15:02kugelhence the timestrech compensates it
18:15:11 Join petur [0] (
18:15:27Mikachuyou can't look at the interface and tell how fast it's going if you have changed the pitch
18:15:32animatorgeekIt should be the relative speed as heard by the user, not the relative speed to the pitch-changed intermediate stream
18:16:37animatorgeekAm I making sense? We're talking about user interface here, which should make sense to the user, not be dictated by idiosyncracies of the archetecture.
18:16:41kugelMikachu: if the pitch is at 120%, is exactly 20% faster...
18:16:50Mikachukugel: not if the speed is 80%
18:16:58Mikachubut 120% and 80% don't make 100%
18:16:59kugelof course
18:17:12Mikachuwe are saying it would be nice if the speed said what actual speed it was, regardless of pitch
18:17:22LloreanMikachu: My Nano saved the setting when shutting down immediately after changing it.
18:17:23animatorgeekMikachu: eactly
18:17:33animatorgeekexactly, that is
18:17:35MikachuLlorean: maybe i somehow messed up
18:18:03kugelMikachu: that's not possible becuase pitch also changes playback speed
18:18:14animatorgeekIt _is_ possible.
18:18:17Mikachukugel: of course it's possible, it's quite a simple calculation :)
18:18:34animatorgeekJust multiply the internal speed by the pitch percentage before you display it.
18:18:47Mikachucould be a third readout
18:18:50Mikachu"effective speed"
18:18:52Mikachuor so
18:18:55kugelI see what you want
18:19:19kugelbut i think the number it displays is exactly the number we feed the algorithms with
18:19:34LloreanThe "speed" is the "effective" speed
18:19:36animatorgeekYes, it could be a third number, though I don't personally see a use for the speed value as it's currently displayed if we also have actual speed...
18:19:43LloreanThe problem is "pitch" doesn't really mean anything
18:19:50LloreanSince the adjusted pitch should always be "100%"
18:19:56gevaertsMikachu: your nano was also the one where HID didn't work, right?
18:20:16animatorgeekadjusted pitch will only be 100% if you've only changed the speed.
18:20:29MikachuLlorean: no, if you increase pitch and speed says 80% because it compensated, if speed was the actual speed, it would mean a one minute track played in 50 seconds or so, but it will play in exactly one minute
18:20:32*gevaerts wonders if that nano could benefit from a chkdsk run and possibly a reinstall+new bootloader
18:20:33animatorgeekWe're talking about the speed remaining unchanged when we change the pitch
18:20:47Mikachugevaerts: maybe :)
18:20:51LloreanIf you scroll pitch up to 200%, it will compensate the speed down to 50% for you
18:21:02LloreanWhich results in a perceived pitch of 100%, while you have a half playback speed
18:21:17Mikachuthat is incorrect
18:21:46LloreanThat's just what happened when I just did it on my player...
18:21:50animatorgeekBut why must the dislayed speed be what's used internally? It would make much more sense to the user if speed was actually what he/she hears
18:22:16LloreanWhen it says "50%" my elapsed time is moving at half the normal rate...
18:22:21LloreanI'm not sure what the problem is with that?
18:22:37animatorgeekI agree, that's what it _should_ do
18:22:38gevaertsLlorean: you're looking at something else then
18:22:59Lloreangevaerts: I'm in the pitch screen, where it says "Pitch: 200%" and "Speed: 50%"
18:23:09MikachuLlorean: when i scroll pitch to 200% and speed to 50%, speed moves at normal, but the voices are smurfed
18:23:24Mikachuthat is to say, speed moves itself to 50% when i change pitch to 200%
18:23:33Mikachuso it is playing at 100% effective speed
18:23:37Mikachuwe want this number to be displayed
18:23:37*gevaerts goes to get a player
18:24:23LloreanMikachu: But it's not playing at 100% effective speed. It's playing at 50% effective speed, of a double pitch file?
18:24:28animatorgeeki.e. the speed display should be of the effective speed, not the speed multiplier the algorith is using.
18:24:46LloreanI mean, a 100% speed file at 200% pitch completes in half the time.
18:24:51animatorgeekNot on mine.
18:25:01MikachuLlorean: i think you're suffering from "know too much" disease :)
18:25:05animatorgeekNot when in timestretching more
18:25:10Mikachuit's playing at 100% speed with double pitch
18:25:14Mikachuthe file has never changed
18:25:20Mikachui don't care how the code works
18:25:32animatorgeekUnless something has changed from when I updated last night
18:25:43Mikachuand setting pitch below 60% in timestretch mode hangs rockbox for a minute and then it resets itself to 100%
18:25:48*animatorgeek and Mikachu are totally on the same page
18:26:45animatorgeekMikachu: I figured that was perhaps a CPU thing

18:27:19 Quit itcheg (Client Quit)
18:27:27animatorgeekShould there be some sort of limit based on the ability of the CPU to keep up?
18:27:41animatorgeekSort of an AGC for timestretching?
18:27:54Mikachuand playback has higher priority than ui, that's why it hangs?
18:28:05Mikachuit goes quiet too though
18:28:18Mikachuor did it, i'm not sure now :)
18:28:42gevaertsLlorean: are you looking at the timestretch screen?
18:28:58animatorgeekOn mine it went quiet when I went too low. I just scrolled ack up to a more reasonable number and it started playing again
18:29:05Lloreangevaerts: I've cleared up my misunderstanding, but I don't get why they want what's there changed
18:29:43animatorgeekLemme try again. The speed display should display the relative speed that the user years.
18:29:48MikachuLlorean: let's say i want to play at 80% effective speed with a higher pitch, i have to change the speed to 80% first and then change pitch, otherwise i don't know what numbers to input
18:30:05Mikachuif i change pitch first, the speed readout is meaningless
18:30:07Lloreananimatorgeek: The speed should display the rate at which the file is consumed
18:30:10Mikachuunless i also have a pocket calculator
18:30:24LloreanIf the file is 4:00 long, and it's going to take 8:00 to complete, speed should say 50%
18:30:29LloreanIndependently of what pitch is set at.
18:30:31animatorgeekLlorean: yes, exactly. It doesn't currently, if pitch is shifted at all.
18:30:34Mikachuthat's not what it does though
18:30:38Mikachuso we are actually in agreement
18:30:53animatorgeekOkay, cool, Everything is cleared up.
18:31:12animatorgeekSo, back to my actual original question, I guess this _is_ probably a bug....
18:31:45LloreanIt's not a bug
18:31:47LloreanIt's a feature request.
18:31:50animatorgeek(assuming a certain understanding of the intended functionality)
18:32:35 Quit Nico_P (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
18:32:48animatorgeekI guess I'm not up on how the Rockbox development effort classifies this sort of thing
18:33:20*animatorgeek just compiled Rockbox for the first time three days ago
18:33:28gevaertsI'm not actually sure how this should be displayed
18:33:31LloreanA bug is when something isn't working how it's expected to work by the person who implemented it, independently of how the user expects it to work
18:33:45 Join Nico_P [50] (n=nicolas@rockbox/developer/NicoP)
18:34:05animatorgeekAh, I see.
18:34:28gevaertsLlorean: maybe pondlife intended to break mpegplayer? ;)
18:34:41Lloreangevaerts: Then the patch really should be reverted. :-P
18:34:52animatorgeekSo then the question I have is: would it be presumptuous for me to go in and change this without consulting pondlife?
18:34:56gevaertsLlorean: why? there's no bug then!
18:35:06Lloreangevaerts: Yeah, but the feature is unwanted in core.
18:35:40gevaertsanimatorgeek: committing it without talking to pondlife would be, I think. Just submitting a patch certainly isn't
18:35:53gevaertsLlorean: mpegplayer is a plugin :)
18:36:18Lloreangevaerts: Yeah, but the feature "break a subset of plugins using the playback system" is unwanted in core. :-P
18:36:20animatorgeekDon't I need permission or a login name or something to commit directly to SVN?
18:36:26Mikachuanimatorgeek: obviously
18:36:26Lloreananimatorgeek: You can't.
18:36:31Lloreananimatorgeek: You need to post a patch.
18:36:38animatorgeekI thought so
18:36:43 Quit barrywardell ()
18:37:37animatorgeekSo then my next question: On my local copy I added in a menu setting to make the morse keyboard default.
18:38:08animatorgeekIf I want to submit a patch, do I really need to go through and compile every single build to make sure it works okay?
18:38:30Mikachuanimatorgeek: you would submit it on the tracker and interested people would try it on their targets if you're lucky
18:38:51gevaertsanimatorgeek: nobody compiles every single target...
18:39:17Mikachuit would be nice if you could send code to the build farm without committing :) (maybe only committers, but still)
18:39:31Mikachuyou could test your commits before committing and save half the revision number space ;)
18:39:35animatorgeekHow could it make it into the core? Is there something I can do to help that along? Or is it unlikely, since it hasn't officially been requested?
18:40:15Lloreananimatorgeek: Make sure the patch works well, post it on the tracker, send an email to the mailing list mentioning it and that you're interested in trying to get it committed and willing to address any issues anyone has with it.
18:40:28gevaertsanimatorgeek: the best thing you can do is to submit it, and address issues quickly
18:40:53animatorgeekOkay, cool. I just signed up for the dev mailing list like half an hour ago.
18:40:58UnhelpfulMikachu: a sort of "pre-commit" would definitely be cut down on the number of "fix red/yellow" revisions, but i don't think it's that big a deal.
18:41:25***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
18:41:58animatorgeekActually, I have another question in relation to my changes
18:42:20MikachuUnhelpful: maybe if the build servers were connected to the git server instead, and there was a separate branch there you could push to
18:42:30animatorgeekIn creating the new menu item I also added two entries to english.lang. Do I need to add those to the other language files?
18:42:59animatorgeekRelatedly, I saw a coment somewhere that said that the order of the language entries matters, and that things shouldn't be inserted, but rather added to the end.
18:43:20UnhelpfulMikachu: HM! that's an idea, but it could be messy... the git server doesn't accept commits at all, they're pulled from svn. it would also need to auto-back-out changes that cause red or yellow on that branch.
18:43:23animatorgeekHow, then, would a patch work if something else had been subsequently added to a lang file?
18:43:41MikachuUnhelpful: it could accept them in either a separate branch or a separate repo
18:43:48Unhelpfulreally, i think it would be a lot of work, for something that's not of a whole lot of use.

18:43:56Mikachuand after it test compiled it, it would revert the commit and reset that branch to latest trunk
18:44:07animatorgeekIs it just something that would need to be hand-held by a person to resolve the conflict?
18:44:28Unhelpfulanimatorgeek: yes, people are needed to resolve non-trivial conflicts.
18:45:10animatorgeekOkay, thanks. Hope I'm not being to noobish. I guess I'll try and submit my patch, then....
18:45:56fmlThe ManualHowto wiki page tells Ubuntu/Debian users to install some tetex-xxx packages. But the package description o tetex-base (at least in Ubuntu) states: "teTeX is no longer developed upstream, and has been replaced by the TeX Live collection" Shouldn't we update the wiki? Or do tetex packages have some advantages?
18:49:00kugelanimatorgeek, Mikachu: That sounds like a reasonable request to me
18:49:15Mikachuthe effective speed readout?
18:49:30kugelthe same thing should happen on the pitch only page too then, of course
18:49:50Mikachuyou mean if you switch to that page with a speed change in effect?
18:49:54animatorgeekAt the moment the pitch-only page doesn't display the speed
18:49:59Mikachuor i guess it could always show it
18:50:13Mikachuwith speed unchanged, pitch will always be equal to effective speed i think
18:50:18animatorgeekI think it would be nice if it always displayed the relative speed
18:50:18gevaertsindeed. Just always display "Effective speed"
18:50:21kugelanimatorgeek: the pitch only page displays the speed. unless you changed speed-only it
18:50:36kugelpitch and speed are identically
18:50:59kugelbut since you can change speed-only now, the actual speed should be shown there too
18:52:41kugelmight get a bit tricky with calculating it, we don't have floating point numbers, so 110%*91% doesn't quite work easily
18:53:29gevaertsnot *that* tricky. Just insert a *1000 or so somewhere
18:53:33Mikachuhow does it find the 91% in the first place?
18:54:15kugelmagic :)
18:54:32animatorgeekI'm slightly surprised there's no fixed-point library in Rockbox....
18:58:03Unhelpfulanimatorgeek: there's a lot of fixed-point math in rockbox. it's hard to create a one-size-fits-all fixed-point "library"
18:59:04Mikachunot really much more you can do than a couple of defines anyway
18:59:48UnhelpfulMikachu: pictureflow uses truly-fixed-point coordinates, and they're a fair amount of trouble :/
19:00:37*Mikachu worked on some code at work that used three different precisions for fixed-point numbers in the same function
19:02:27Mikachuhow unwelcome would a change like this be?;a=commitdiff;h=fc22dcbe0c2 (i realize it needs more to not break every other target)
19:02:38Unhelpfulthat often makes *sense*, though. the jpeg decoder's IDCT functions use S.2 between the two passes, and S.13 for temporary values while calculating 1D IDCT. if they didn't scale back to S.2 between passes, then using the same S.13 multipliers would overflow. coordinate math is really one of the few places where you can avoid constant scale changes.
19:02:43Mikachuwithout it i only manage to answer yes to questions a third of the time :)
19:02:57Mikachuit changes yesno to use a specific key to say no, rather than any button
19:03:16kugelI see no reason for that
19:03:30Mikachujust accidentally touch the wheel and you say no
19:04:25kugelit probably should ignore scrollwheel actions at all
19:04:44Mikachuthat would be good too, but i guess it would be up to me :)
19:05:06kugelwhich can be done through {ACTION_NONE, BUTTON_SCROLL_FWD, BUTTON_NONE} etc
19:05:21kugelit might be a bit more complicated
19:05:44Mikachu|REPEAT and all that too?
19:06:40Mikachuwhat does it get for a button that isn't listed? ACTION_OTHER or what?
19:08:01kugelno idea
19:08:25Unhelpfuli believe no match returns ACTION_NONE?
19:08:56*fml just tried the new "pitch separately from speed" screen. The fact that increasing pitch automatically reduces speed is indeed very confusing.
19:09:10Mikachuno, because no match results in the 'YESNO_NO' code path being taken under default:, not under case ACTION_NONE:
19:09:14kugelMikachu: ACTION_NONE results in a continue (and not in a reject)
19:10:04*fml thinks that now, that pitch and speed are not the same, it would make sense to display bothe values regardless of the mode.
19:10:22kugelUnhelpful: obviously not
19:10:35kugelwell, not obviously, apparently (I'm looking at yesno.c)
19:11:01UnhelpfulACTION_UNKNOWN appears to be the default return value for get_action_worker
19:11:28kugelUnhelpful: no match will ask the next context in list
19:11:39Mikachuyeah it looks like ACTION_UNKNOWN
19:12:03kugelanyway, explicitely assinging ACTION_NONE seems to work out fine
19:12:09Unhelpfulkugel: but there is no next context in this case. if no match is found in the context chain, you get ACTION_UNKNOWN
19:12:23kugelon the e200, there's CONTEXT_STD after
19:12:40kugelbut all ACTION_STD_* will also branch to the default: case
19:13:19animatorgeekOkay, here's a UI question for you. As part of my implementation of a menu item to choose which virtual keyboard to use (more or normal) I inadvertently also made Rockbox remember which one you used last, and come up with that one next time as well.
19:13:34animatorgeekSo the question is, is a menu item even needed?
19:13:52animatorgeekAnd if so, should it _not_ remember the last mode used?
19:14:04kugelI think it should
19:14:09Mikachuthat could be an option too \)
19:14:16kugelnot sure about the menu item, I've never seen the morse mode

20:45:44bertrikI can't remember exactly what happened, it was not a really systematic test. IIRC it did result in some sensitive delays to break down.

20:56:27animatorgeekI'll try that....
20:57:59animatorgeekArg. It isn't correctly detecting the dependencies. I modify keyboard.h, which is included in settings.h, but nothing recompiles.
20:59:29linuxstbanimatorgeek: Hmm, a "make clean" will probably help...
20:59:50animatorgeekI think I tried that, but I'll try again.
21:00:47Unhelpfulbertrik: i don't believe there are ways to hint that sort of thing. i had a similar problem with IDCT, gcc produces essentially optimal ARMv4 code from the C, *except* for some superfluous sign- or zero- extensions, because *i* know that the top half of certain 32-bit results is empty, but there's no way to hint *that* to gcc either.
21:02:30bertrikI almost forgot that we do hint with the LIKELY and UNLIKELY macros
21:04:01Unhelpfulthose use gcc builtins... i don't know of any builtins or attributes that say "this memory is slower than that" or "this value will not exceed a certain range" :/
21:04:36*Unhelpful still thinks that gcc ought to offer a cast-like syntax extension or a builtin for the latter
21:04:56Unhelpfulas to the former, we generally have to decide explicitly where things are in memory, don't we?
21:08:13bertrikyes, we do that in the linker script as far as I know
21:09:59animatorgeekAh, I figured out the problem. There's another keyboard.h!

21:11:11bertrikhm, I almost thought I had identified the problem causing playback to still stop on the clip sometimes
21:11:11saratogaUnhelpful: (just reading the logs now) I saw you asked about TDAC for fast playback
21:11:24saratogasorry for playing back while skipping quickly
21:12:24saratogait actually does work ok since the TDAC only depends that you have the previous block, not that TDAC worked for the previous block, so you'd decode block N-1 (badly) then N and TDAC would work for N even though N-1 is screwed up
21:12:40saratogathen I guess you throw away N-1
21:13:15bertrikthe pl081 datasheet says to enable synchronisation logic when the peripheral generating the DMA request runs on a different clock to the SMDMAC
21:13:59Unhelpfulsaratoga: so, to get one block worth of correct data while skipping, you have to decode two, and take the overlapped area?
21:13:59bertrikthe DMA controller is on the AHB while the I2S is on the APB so as far as I understand the synchronisation logic should be enabled
21:14:14saratogaUnhelpful: yeah basically
21:14:35bertrikI tried it out and it seemed to work quite well on an album that often stops playing for me, but it just stopped anyway ...

21:14:50gartralis it known that there are two case styles (internal scroll wheel) for the e200s?
21:15:26saratogathough i bet it'd sound ok to just decode one, since blocks are so short, you'd probably just hear it blended into the click sound when you skipped
21:16:27saratogaUnhelpful: I've been trying to understand the huffman decoding in ffmpeg for a couple days now, would you have time to look at a code sample and tell me what you think its doing?
21:17:16bertriksaratoga, can I have a look too?
21:17:33saratogabertrik: sure
21:17:53animatorgeekBertrik: I notice that your name is in keyboard.c. Can you tell me why it's in the recorder directory? Is that for historical reasons?
21:17:53saratogaheres the get_vlc code from ffmpeg once i've cleaned up all the stuff we don't use, and parsed all the preprocessor defines:
21:18:19 Join DarkSpectrum [0] (n=ZX@
21:18:37saratogai don't understand the bits and max_depth parameters
21:19:03saratogaWMA in ffmpeg uses 9 and 4 for them respecitvely, though other values work too with slightly different memory and cpu requirements
21:19:40saratogai don't understand why the get vlc function takes a number of bits? shouldn't it be defined by the length of the code we're looking up?
21:20:43saratogahere is the code that calls the vlc function:
21:22:48saratogait makes sense to me that its stepping through the bitstream, decoding a variable length code, and then spitting out the uncompressed MDCT samples, but why it does what it does makes no sense to me
21:22:51bertriksaratoga, I think it peeks at some maximum amount of bits, then looks in the table (with size 1 << max_bits) what that code meant and how long the code actually was, instead of peeking at 1 bit at a time
21:23:31linuxstbanimatorgeek: Yes, it's historical. The first two Rockbox targets were the Archos Player (character-cell LCD) and Archos Recorder (bitmap LCD) - so lots of things which are for "bitmap LCD targets" (i.e. everything apart from the Player) have found themselves in apps/recorder/
21:23:46linuxstbanimatorgeek: No-one has yet got around to fixing that...
21:23:55saratogabertrik: you're refering to the two checks for if( n < 0) ?
21:24:17bertrikthe table contains multiple entries of the same code
21:24:42Unhelpfulthat's a fairly common pattern for optimized huffman decoding, you create a prefix table of 1<<n entries, you read in n bits, and then you index the table. for codes smaller than n bits, the table contains multiple entries.
21:25:37Unhelpfulgenerally such a table will give the length of the code, then you get the full code and look it up in a second table that contains all of the entries of a specific length
21:26:12Unhelpfuli don't know how mpeg and wma do things, but in jpeg the huffman codewords don't encode actual values, but the length of a value that is stored in the following bits.
21:26:49saratogaso the bits field is just the length of the first table?
21:26:53bertriksaratoga, I don't really understand the n < 0 part ... this code could use a bit more comments
21:27:41saratogabertrik: the original version is written in C preprocessor macros, but some of them have comments, let me see if they're any help
21:29:01saratogahmm not much luck looking at them
21:29:01Unhelpful the n<0 might perhaps flag a particular special case
21:29:16saratogait seems odd to me that theres two checks for n<0
21:29:43saratogaits like theres 3 levels to the table
21:31:21saratogalooking at the original preprocessor version, theres a check that max_depth >1 and then max_depth > 2 as well, so perhaps this code works with up to 3 level tables
21:33:39bertrikanimatorgeek, my name is in that file because I last touched it for redundant #include cleanups :)
21:33:50Unhelpfulthere may be more tables. there are further ways to optimize this :)

21:36:24saratogaso if I understand you correctly, it looks up the first "bits" bits in the table "table" and then uses them to look up a new index in the table, and then continues until its consumed the maximum of 22 bits?

21:43:59Unhelpfulsaratoga: i'm having trouble following this particular code. the method in general works along the lines of getting the code length and smallest code value of that length on the first lookup, getting the full code and subtracting the minimum, and using that to index a second table for codes of that length, which produces the actual symbol.
21:44:19Unhelpfuli'm not precisely sure how this scheme works... looks like two layers of length-finding?

21:47:46saratogaUnhelpful: how generic is huffman decoding? looking in ffmpeg, it looks like mjpeg uses most of the same code so I guess pretty generic?
21:48:06bertrikhere it's just a single table that directly contains the value for the huffman code and the length of the code, I think
21:49:13bertrikdoes this code actually work, or was it reconstructed from the macros without testing?
21:50:05 Join stripwax [0] (
21:50:26Unhelpfulthere's a specific sort called canonical huffman codes that have certain advantages and are therefore used rather widely. because canonical huffman codes have code values in a specific order, a list of number-of-codes for each length can be used to reconstruct the codes entirely.
21:50:28saratogabertrik: it works
21:53:01 Quit raphi ("leaving...")
21:55:19Unhelpfuljpeg uses canonical huffman, and the code table as stored in the file is only a list of lengths. i'd expect there are differences in pre- or post- processing... some formats may encode their information directly via huffman coding, others like jpeg encode a length and then that is followed by a non-huffman-coded variable-length value
21:56:33Unhelpfuljpeg also allows markers inside the huffman codestream. these are indicated as a byte-aligned 0xff, followed by the marker value, with a zero value indicating a literal 0xff in the bitstream

22:18:20saratogawow looking at the wma huffman codes is interesting, very few even reach level two of the table, and maybe 1 in a hundred read level 3
22:18:57saratogai guess that make sense, lossy compression should make the data highly sparse so only a few codes are needed

22:43:49bertrikwhat's different about the use of the iram?
22:44:05kugelhave you looked if the IRAM is too full? The whole codec buffer is there, but also some lcd and memcpy code

22:44:44bertrikI hoped the linker would complain about that
22:44:51kugelI can imagine that the codec just gets overwritten at some point after executing code which is before the codec buffer
22:44:59kugelthen stops working
22:46:07kugelthere's a bit of code in rockbox, that doesn't listen to the ICODE/IDATA attribute defines and is always in IRAM (I noticed that when looking whether we use IRAM correctly a few weeks ago)
