Subject: RE: Rockbox Digest, Vol 4, Issue 34
From: Branden Wilson (w_brande_at_bellsouth.net)
Date: 2004-05-10


On my archos I have my folders arranged as albums. There are times when I
would like to listen to a particular album in sequence. Is there a patch
that someone has or some easy fix that can allow me to play a folder by
track sequence?

http://subversion.tigris.org/
it has much more powerful features than cvs. it is free and is great.
lot of open source projects use svn. (or subversion)

Can it be installed in a way that is based on an existing cvs repository? We
surely want to be able to check out older versions of rockbox.

We are aware of SVN. Check the list of contributors...

We did however go with CVS now to get this transition as smooth as possible.
We may switch to Subversion at a later date.

Because this was an act of desperation. We wanted off the sinking Sourceforge servers immediately, so we just moved the repository. Migrating to another system would have taken more time and effort.

We have been looking at Subversion for a long time and will move to it eventually. We will warn everybody ahead of time about that, though. :-)

I like the auto level control that is available while playing. Is there, can there, will there be a similar feature while recording?

I use the V2 to record a class on the line input via the sound board for the room but the levels from week to week are all over the place. A slow ALC would be a big help.

Thanks Stu

Timed recording has been in the request queue for more than a year. It is hardly fair to consider it "option clutter" now.

... Given readily > available software like mp3DirectCut, I guess I don't really > see the point in "split".

I use time split all the time and I would also like timed recording. I record 12 - 16 hours from a radio, and I would prefer dealing with 12 one hour files than one humongous 12 hour file. Also, if something goes wrong in the ninth hour, at least I have 8 good files.

If I could say "record 12 1 hour files and then stop" I would be a happy man.

Adding one more recording option to a specialty menu that doesn't get used unless you are actually recording doesn't seem like clutter to me. But one person's essentials are another's clutter, I suppose.

I wouldn't mind if there were some options that were settable only in the config file, but this one probably should be in a menu.

I am sorry to be wasting your time with this, and I wont continue to fill this mail list with stupid questions, but I need some help.

I loaded Rockbox and it works fine, but it doesnt load as fast as it is supposed to. When I turn the unit on, it still takes the 12 seconds before the Rockbox logo comes up. Is there a way to quicken this? Did I load it wrong? I simply downloaded the program and unzipped it into my root directory.

Hi,

The files available at http://perso.club-internet.fr/abonald/rockbox/index.html are .rar files.

You need Winrar or a Rar compatible unarchiving program. I have provided unrar.exe on the site , which is a freeware command line utility to uncompress rar files.

of course, the various flavors of the english voice, I.E. british-english.rar, etc. all containt an english.voice file you can directly copy on your Archos.

if you want to have several flavor of the English language available at the same time just copy english.lng to english2.lng etc. Or any name you like. And put a corresponding . voice file for each lng file on your box.

I had the same problem with bad files and mpeg problems, remember the mails I send which dealt about "VRBfix" ??

Same problem and I have the latest build of rockbox. Only small recordings work on pc or anything else, the big ones only work on the recorder itself.

Untill now I haven't found a solution to this.

The only possible option now is to record the stuff again with the pc while your archos plays it => results in a small quality loss.

It's irritating isn't it ?

I've tried the windows VBRfix but that doesnt help, I'm gonna try the cygwin version to. I'll let you know something when it's done or I find some remedy.

If I set the disk spin time to like 20 sec so it keeps spinning during load times, it works perfectly. But you allways gotta hassle with the settings.

I'll try you thing, I'll let you know how it went ...

The crash/hang/silence problem should be fixed since todays' build. No need to pass around old collectors' versions of Rockbox any more.

Debugging this was pretty tough, it turned out it wasn't my code malfunctioning, instead the bitswap process (a kind of preprocessing needed by the playback) was still active, trashed the data structure of the loaded voice file in the mp3 buffer.
