Flyspray:: Mon, 21 Jul 2014 07:00:55 +0000 Flyspray:: Rockbox: Recently opened tasks FS#12989: Autodetect crashes installer Samweis Tue, 08 Jul 2014 00:47:34 +0000
Whenever I start the Rockbox Utility, upon being presented with the Configuration screen, when I press "Autodetect" I get the 'ol "Rockbox Utility has stopped working... Windows is searching for a solution to this problem" popup.
I believe this may be related to the fact that Windows 8 doesn't give the Clip Zip a drive letter; it appears as simply "Sansa Clip Zip 4GB" in My Computer. However I can access it and copy/paste to/from all folders therein.

Do I need to strongarm Windows into assigning a drive letter to the Clip Zip?

FS#12988: Lua division by zero Opal Hart Sun, 06 Jul 2014 21:39:27 +0000
When the Lua interpreter plugin returns a division by zero exception (if it even does that), it crashes the whole system instead of exiting with a plugin error.]]>
FS#12987: Shuffle does not work properly any more (H300) Alex Sun, 06 Jul 2014 18:43:49 +0000 FS#12986: Metronome issues on Ipod 6G Vasily Wed, 02 Jul 2014 19:59:28 +0000
Steps to reproduce:
1) Open metronome;
2) Hold the "Select" button.

-- The metronome starts to tick in the headphones.

-- The text on the screen changes from "start: hold select" to "stop : cancel", but no sound is made.
-- A short click on the Select button emits a single tick sound, but the tapped frequency cannot be captured as the Ipod 6G does not have any "Record" button.

As single taps can be made, the metronome.c / play_tock() seems to work
and at least some sort of sound can be produced on this hardware,
maybe something is wrong with the timer_callback() ?
FS#12985: My sansa clip zip back button doesn't work anymore Ticiano Sun, 22 Jun 2014 00:04:38 +0000
Sorry if I selected the wrong category. my sansa clip zip's back button wont respond at all, weird thing is that the select button has working as a back button when the song in playing (on the playlists menu it works like a "select button").

Is this hardware or software? is there a workaround this?]]>
FS#12984: Manual should mention it can only install on WinPods Ralf G. R. Bergs Wed, 18 Jun 2014 13:39:06 +0000 FS#12983: "Strange" volume names not recognized Ralf G. R. Bergs Wed, 18 Jun 2014 13:34:49 +0000
My iPod was named "Ralf G. R. Bergs's iPod", and the volume "/Volumes/Ralf G. R. Bergs's iPod" would not be displayed in RButil.

After I changed the iPod's name to "iPod" RButil recognized the volume.]]>
FS#12982: partition table unsupported (and bugfully ignored) on sansa clip+ microsd card Andrew Engelbrecht Tue, 03 Jun 2014 05:46:29 +0000
if i format the sd card with a vfat fs starting at the first block, then the fs is recognized by rockbox.

** if i then reformat the sd card with a partition table like above, then the second fs i created is still recognized by rockbox, even though the first 512 bytes or so have been clobbered. the result is that rb and my laptop see different fs structures, and clobber each other's metadata, causing corrupt file systems.

the work-around is to dd if=/dev/zero the beginning of the sd card and format without partitions.

i kindly request that rb support dos, or some other, partition table, and maybe that rb doesn't mount fs'es which appear to be clobbered by a partition table. one problem with this change is that some people may be using a clobbered fs without knowing. with such a patch, they could end up seeing a corrupt fs instead.

i don't consider this very high priority. thanks for the awesome firmware! :-)]]>
FS#12981: JPEGs and album art with black backdrops don't display correctly. Dean Tersigni Wed, 28 May 2014 19:42:05 +0000
I have tried the following to solve the problem:
* I have verified the image looks proper in multiple graphics programs.
* I have save the image with multiple graphics programs to rule-out bugs in the saving process of a particular graphics program.
* I have deleted and recopied the file with a different name to rule-out a bad secot on my flash drive.
* I have made a negative of the image (mostly white), and the negative displays properly.
* I have had another Sansa Clip Zip user verify this problem.

The following file will look corrupt when viewed on a Sansa Clip Zip:

However, a reverse with a white backdrop with be viewed properly:]]>
