07:20:24YeAhxhey everyone
07:20:33YeAhxsorry its me again :)
07:21:53YeAhxhow ya doin?
07:23:10elinenbeLinus: have you worked on queuing at all recently?
07:23:43elinenbeLinusN: Rockboxx suxx haxx without that. :)
07:24:26LinusNhehe, i've been busy with other stuff
07:24:30YeAhxwhat about the quake port?
07:24:31LinusNyou want to do it?
07:29:37elinenbeLinusN: something serious now though.
07:30:20adi|homeis it me or have we had a drastic influx of suggestions for things that either a. already exist or b. aren't going to happen and are stated so in docs?
07:30:42elinenbeLinusN: the General Idle poweroff resets each time a button is pressed and only starts when mpeg is nopt playing
07:30:55elinenbecouldn't this become a sleep timer to not reset when mpeg is playing.
07:32:17mecrawmorning, folks
07:32:50elinenbedo you understand? Do not reset the timer when mepg_thread is playing. So, it turns off when you are listening to music −− thus acting as a sleep timer
07:33:40elinenbeinstead of Idle poweroff we have much requested feature "Sleep Off" (and before it shuts off, it turns itself off (the option) and sets the resume point)
07:33:46mecrawelinenbe: i believe that is planned, we're just not sure how to activate since it's a function and not a setting
07:34:00elinenbeput it in the setting menu
07:34:18elinenbea setting that ALWAYS has the same "off" value when you turn the device on.
07:34:25elinenbelike my TV or stereo.
07:34:34elinenbethe sleep is always off unless I set it.
07:35:01mecrawi agree, but the triumvirate is not sure about it :)
07:35:38elinenbewell, the senate has overruled them. Open source is for the people and by the people.
07:36:30mecrawit's open, it's just up to the benevolent dictator what gets in
07:38:34mecrawelinenbe: are you on windows or linux?
07:39:17elinenbemecraw: windows with cygwin
07:39:32mecrawcan you build the sim?
07:39:34elinenbemecraw: linus sometiems but not nearly as much.
07:39:47elinenbemecraw: never cared about it.
07:40:33mecrawi haven't too much either, but it would be nice to be able to build it under cygwin
07:40:46mecrawi tried mingw, but had no luck
07:41:36LinusNelinenbe: we don't want the sleep timer to be a setting, since settings are expected to be persistent in Rockbox
07:41:58LinusNwe will implement it as a "regular" menu item
07:42:15mecrawWhat's a "regular" menu item?
07:42:26LinusNyou know, the main menu

07:42:53elinenbeI think there should be a features menu maybe.

07:44:29elinenbemaybe MS work, excel, (powerpoint is too hard to do, so forget that)
07:44:35mecrawLinusN: any thought to how to idle poweroff when the music is paused?
07:44:35LinusNPalm reading, isn't that Graffiti?
07:44:47LinusNmecraw: easy as pie
07:45:02mecrawLinusN: show me the code :D
07:45:13LinusNi didn't do it yesterday because my mpeg.c was full of recording code that i didn't want to commit
07:45:28LinusNyou can do it in 10 seconds
07:45:40LinusNbut i can't commit it for you
07:45:50mecrawno, you can do it in 10 seconds, it'll take me 2 minutes
07:46:13elinenbeLinus: how is recording coming?
07:46:21mecrawI nominate Zagor
07:47:22LinusNelinenbe: i haven't come that far yet
07:47:24CtcpIgnored 2 channel CTCP requests in 4 hours and 5 minutes at the last flood
07:47:24*Zagor wakes up. Huh?
07:48:13*mecraw hides
07:49:47LinusNZagor: an mpeg_is_paused() function to be called from handle_auto_poweroff()
07:50:19LinusNor maybe extend it to mpeg_status() returning an enum/bitmask?
07:51:04Zagorsounds better, yeah
08:06:28adi|homehas anyone had any problems with the wps at all?
08:06:44Zagorseems to work rather well
08:06:52adi|homehmm.. odd

08:07:06adi|homei could bring up the menus, no prob
08:07:11adi|homebut music would stop.

08:25:40Bagderwe need a link to it
08:25:47Zagorah, right. me fix.
08:26:06LinusNis rockbox_default.bdf fetched from CVS?
08:26:27LinusNit should probably
08:26:36Zagoryup. i've been meaning to rename the font in cvs to a more meaningful name :-)
08:28:18Zagori've colored "fixed" bug/request items a sickly shade of green too

08:46:10adi|homeill deal with all this tomorrow
09:04:39LinusNquestion for you all:
09:05:07LinusNthe auto-poweroff does not power off if the charger is inserted
09:05:18LinusNbut should it power off when it is extracted?
09:05:35LinusNor should it restart the timeout when the charger is extracted?
09:05:45Bagderpower off then
09:07:30Schnueffmy backlight-on-when-charging patch restarts the timer when charger is extracted
09:07:38Schnueffbut these are shorter times
09:09:18LinusNthe effect will be that the unit may shut off right after you remove the charger
09:09:30Schnueffwould be a little disturbing to me
09:09:36LinusNi guess
09:09:58LinusNwhere are you polling the charger in your patch?
09:10:07Schnueffin backlight.c
09:10:14LinusNah, when it times out?
09:10:24Schnueffbacklight_tick() which gets called from button.c somewhere
09:10:48Schnueffwhen it times out? it has its own timeout counter?
09:11:26LinusNof course, it has to dim the backlight after a timeout
09:11:41Schnueffyes, that worx over the backlight_{on,off}() functions
09:11:44LinusNor you meant the charger?
09:11:47Schnueffas before
09:12:11Schnueffu were asking where i check for charger_inserted()?
09:12:27LinusNand you answered
09:13:27Schnueffwhen timer reaches zero, backlight_off() is called which poses an event for the backlight queue which gets handled by backlight() thread
09:15:34LinusNok, added timeout for charger as well for the auto-poweroff
09:16:04LinusNi don't like that the button handler talks to the RTC for every keypress...
09:17:43bobTHClinus : u think it's possible like the ff/fd config menu to configure steps for the pitch option ?
09:18:33bobTHCbecause it's to bad to listen too much "click" noise @ itch pitch step....
09:18:55bobTHCin all case, thanx a lot linus for this so good option!

09:32:56bobTHCto mix techno and drum & bass tracks with vinyl...
09:33:37LinusNok, and you don't need fine tuned pitch control?
09:33:49LinusNi'm puzzled
09:35:03bobTHCof course but@ itch pitch change i have a "clik" noize.. and it's not good to have 15 "click" when i want a 115% pitch during a live session
09:35:30LinusNok, so you know what pitch you want beforehand?
09:36:17ZagorbobTHC: you're not pitching live, are you? i mean you first get the pitch right, *then* mix it into the PA system?
09:36:49 Quit TotMacher ()
09:36:55YeAhxyou'd trust an archos in a live session?
09:37:28ZagorYeAhx: sure thing. i've hear people who DJ with two archoses and a mixer
09:37:36bobTHCi have an idea so i'll choose for exemple 15 step and after i change the step for a fine tuning...@ 2 for example...
09:38:05ZagorbobTHC: that would require you going into the menu *very* frequently
09:38:10LinusNmaybe a way to select the pitch and a separate button to apply it
09:38:15YeAhxI guess it beats carrying big cases full of records, just would be emarassing if there was a failure of some kind
09:38:41bobTHCor a like EQ preset will be great ;)
09:38:43ZagorYeAhx: failures with the archos hardware aren't very common actually
09:38:51LinusNbobTHC: ok, so you know what pitch you want beforehand?
09:39:04ZagorbobTHC: if you hold the pitch key down, it will go many steps without clicking

09:41:53LinusNok, so you guess that it is about 115% and then fine tune?
09:42:35Zagorwe could make BUTTON_REPEAT events not actually set the pitch until BUTTON_RELEASE
09:42:45LinusNok, so ON+UP/DOWN for 10% steps would be ok?
09:43:10LinusNsorry, i am a fool
09:43:14ZagorLinusN: ON+UP is already used. for pitching...
09:43:28LinusNmaybe left/right?
09:43:41Zagorseriously, I don't see why this is a problem. scroll to 115%, then fine tune. it takes 1.5 seconds.
09:43:43LinusNor, not setting the pitch for repeated events
09:46:54LinusNi like that the best
09:47:06Zagori can live with that
09:50:10bobTHC left right to choose step it's a great idea...
09:50:35Zagorwe have other plans for left/right
09:52:50LinusNit's a pity that we can't get rid of the click...
09:53:29LinusNi have checked out the entire rockbox cvs tree
09:53:46LinusNis it possible to remove and not update the www tree somehow?
09:54:15BagderI don't think you can
09:54:38Schnueffmaybe put it inside .cvsignore
09:54:43Schnueffor what was its name
09:54:52LinusNwhat's that?
09:55:07bobTHCu think it's possible to add a BPM Detector ?
09:55:15Schnueffit says cvs which files to ignore, w8 a sec, verifying
09:55:26LinusNbobTHC: yes and no
09:55:38Bagderit would surprise me if you can ignore a directory that is already in the CVS/Entries file
09:55:43bobTHCi love this answer !
09:55:50LinusNa BMP detector needs frequency analysis to be effective
09:56:02LinusNand we don't have that
09:56:18LinusNnot without MAS programming
09:56:20bobTHCi general tekno or d&b have a constant bpm...
09:56:41 Quit YeAhx (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
09:56:57LinusNon techno music, however, the beat is often distinguishable from the quasi-peak alone
09:57:22LinusNso yes, it might work, using the bezerk peak-meter mode
09:57:38bobTHCthat what i think too..
09:58:14SchnueffLinusN: try settinv environment variable CVSIGNORE to www, but if that worx, its a hack rather
09:58:17LinusNanother interesting thing is that the MP3 frames are already frequency analyzed
09:58:35LinusNand huffman compressed, unfortunately
09:58:42bobTHCand after adding this features archos would be a real good djing tool !
09:59:20LinusNwe can parse the MP3 frames to find frames with high bass content
09:59:53LinusNbut that is quite difficult to do, since you also need temporoal information as well
10:00:56LinusNso that you can distinguish longer bass sounds from the actual beats
10:02:45LinusNthe bpm/pitch info can easily be analyzed and put into ID3V2 tags beforehand
10:03:03LinusNbut the beat synchronization must still be live
10:03:38Schnueffu can put it in time codes for specific beats in id3v2.4 too
10:03:45Schnueffs/put it in/put in/
10:03:50LinusNwould a 1/10th second pause function be helpful?
10:04:11Schnueffmaybe a way to directly set time
10:04:15LinusNfor synchronization?
10:04:19Schnueffin seconds + cd frames / mp3 frames
10:04:46Schnueffi dont need such thing at the moment,
10:04:55bobTHCyes... ithat's sounds good
10:05:02Schnueffbut it would be nice to finetune the setting of trackmarks (the thing we had yesterday)
10:05:05LinusNare the time codes for id3v2.4 inserted in the stream, or a table in the header?
10:05:41LinusNbobTHC: sound good? you mean the short pause?
10:05:51Zagorthe ON+PAUSE is intended for beat sync. it only pauses while you hold the key down.
10:06:07LinusNZagor: today?
10:06:19LinusNoh, i didn't know
10:07:41LinusNlanghaarrocker will have to implement a beat finder in his bezerk mode
10:07:55LinusNthe coolness would be immense
10:09:13Schnueffand langhaarrocker also wanted smth to split tracks, so he gotta to the fine-positioning in tracks too :)
10:13:12Schnuefffcpp, where can i find that?
10:13:56Schnueffits not a regular cpp, is it?
10:14:04Bagdernot quite, no
10:14:28BagderBjorn just patched it the other day so my package is not really the latest
10:15:04Schnueffk, i thought about make'ing the www/doc in my checked out cvs
10:15:10Schnueffeh www/manual
10:15:43LinusNthe best would of course be if the files could be analyzed beforehand and rockbox just needed to parse some ID3 tags for the beat synch
10:15:48BagderZagor: are you using that __FILE_DATE__ now?
10:17:14LinusNWhat do you guys think about non-combo quick menus, i.e one F2 click puts you in the menu, and the next leaves it again?
10:17:33LinusNmuch easier that two-button combos
10:17:39Schnueffhm maybe the leave button should be all the same them for all menus?
10:17:43LinusNand we can have the cake and eat it
10:18:13LinusNwe can support combos _and_ the "persistent" quick menu
10:18:23LinusNjust like the F1 key today
10:18:46LinusNa button_release without any combos in between pops up the menu

10:42:25BagderI'm gonna have a go at a binary lang format
10:43:25LinusNBagder: good luck, and be careful out there
10:43:46Bagderthank you oh yee master for thy kind words
10:43:47Schnueffan array of zero-terminated strings? :)
10:44:09BagderSchnueff: basicly, yes but we need to keep the id numbers too
10:44:52Bagderbecause the language files need to work even when we add a language and similar
10:45:00Bagderuh, add a string
10:45:07Bagderor stop using one
10:45:36Schnueffyes thats what genlang does at the moment
10:45:42Schnueffat compile time
10:48:38Schnueffso, stop using a strings means: it's not present in the binary lang file on archos, but the rockbox might still try to display it?
10:48:50Schnueffor would a recompilation be necessary then?
10:49:18BagderI want the binary lang file to be able to only contain any set of translated strings
10:49:59Schnueffso, we got to give away unique LANG_XXX over the whole project and never reassign one?
10:50:11Schnueffhm, for example
10:50:26Bagderright, until we bump the lang file version
10:50:58Bagderand require newly built lang files
10:52:35Schnueff(here u mean the ascii ones)
10:53:09Bagderthe binary lang files will have a "version" in a header, so that we can make old ones obsolete when we want to renumber the ids
10:54:20Schnueffso, if one tries to load an obsolete lang file, then rockbox complains and switches to an up-to-date english one, which is guaranteed to be available
10:54:40Bagderright, it'll have a built-in language
10:55:41Schnueffand if version is ok, we just load the rest (zero-terminated array of strings) and overwrite the pointers in **language_strings
10:55:59Schnueffi.e. construct the pointers by scanning all the stinrgs
10:56:00Schnueffok fine
10:57:19Schnueffthe space for the built-in language is reused i guess
10:57:41Bagderthat's not likely I'm afraid
10:57:49Schnueffit would be ok i think
10:58:15Schnueffu can select a language file, if version is ok, it gets loaded, if not, language stays the same as it is
10:59:14Schnueffwhat could be the problem?
10:59:25Bagdernone really ;-)
11:01:17Schnueffbtw, has empty line after 'new:' become a convention?
11:02:34Bagderconvention, yes, requirement no. The 'new' has to be the last keyword, that's the only requirement really

11:05:06Bagderall english strings make a 2057 bytes binary lang file
11:05:13Bagdernot much
11:12:22Schnueffa LANG_XXX to int mapping has to be in the cvs then, right?
11:13:08Bagderthat mapping is set by the english.lang file
11:15:22Schnueffso, there are id remappings each time that english.lang gets changed

11:16:57Schnueffyes, but as i see, the things are categorized, so this may happen quite often
11:17:16BagderI might add a number to the fields in the english file
11:17:19Schnueffthis could be avoided with an external id file, though
11:17:21Schnueffor this way
11:17:39Schnueff(but that makes searching for an empty number more difficult)
11:17:47Schnueff'empty' = unused
11:18:22Schnueffif one decides to switch to a new version number of the language files, of course, the lang-id file could be automatically generated again
11:19:49Schnueffhm not that easy:)

14:29:44Zagorgood question
14:29:52LinusNi am debugging now
14:30:17Bagderyou guys ready for a binary language commit? ;-)
14:30:54LinusNlooks like a fillrect bug
14:31:23Zagori changed one thing about fillrect
14:31:41Zagorstatic unsigned char ones[8] = { 0xff };
14:32:13Zagori couldn't remember if that did what I wanted, or just set the first. from the look of the battery meter, it seemed fine. but maybe it's not=
14:32:40LinusNZagor: shouldn't it be 0xff, 0xff, 0xff.....
14:32:54LinusNit sets the first only
14:33:12Zagorthen that could be it
14:33:17LinusNi'll test
14:33:39LinusNwhat was it before the change?
14:35:21Schnueffdrivers/lcd.c:static unsigned char ones[] = { 0xff, 0xff, 0xff, 0xff, 0xff, 0xff,
14:35:24Schnueffdrivers/lcd.c- 0xff, 0xff };
14:35:42***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
14:35:58LinusNwhy did you change?
14:36:34Zagora devil in the back of my mind told me it would be the same effect. it was late. i was drunk. someone forced me to do it. it wasn't me. pick one. :-)
14:36:55*Bagder puts his blind fold on and picks one
14:37:04Bagderah, you were drunk ;-)
14:41:55LinusNBagder: you might want to either open OFILE in binary mode, or use the pack functions
14:42:15Bagderwill that crap out on windows you mean?
14:42:38LinusNthe printf(%c may very well generate 0x0d
14:42:47LinusNand 0x0a will be added
14:42:54LinusNor is it the opposite?
14:43:06LinusNon windows
14:43:27Bagderyou actually think windows users will use that? B)
14:49:37Schnueffhm whats the check 'if(filesize != MAX_LANGUAGE_SIZE) {' ? are all binary langauge file the same size?
14:49:58Zagorwe must have a max size
14:50:13Zagorthere's only so much memory allocated for the strings
14:50:46Schnueffbut read returns the number of bytes read and it may well return (filesize=read(..)) < MAX_LANGUAGE_SIZE
14:51:01Bagderright, and then all is good
14:51:17Schnueffin which case it appears to print DEBUGF("Language %s too large: %d\n", filename, filesize) ?
14:51:20ZagorBagder: shouldn't != be <= ?
14:51:26Zagoror >= even
14:51:31Schnueffno <=
14:51:36Bagdershould be <, yes
14:51:46*Zagor gets some coffee
14:51:52Schnueff<= is acceptable too
14:52:05*Schnueff thinks.
14:52:09Bagderbecause if it returned the full buffer, it could be larger than the buffer
14:52:46Bagderof course it could be *exactly* as big as the buffer, and then we bail out wrongly, but most often it'll be bigger
14:53:27Schnueffgot it
14:57:24Schnueffif one would store the messages in ascending ID order in the binary file one could save 2 bytes per message
14:57:31Schnueffbut i guess that doesnt count that muhc
14:57:52Bagderthat's kind of what I thought
14:58:00Schnueff(ah and one had to provide the empty messages as null string)
14:58:39Bagdernow, how do we load a language file by default?
14:59:01Schnueffmodify binlang so that it produces some lang.h
14:59:06Schnueffand compile that in
14:59:23Schnueff(that would be english, fixed, i guess)
14:59:25Bagdergenlang does that
14:59:44Schnueffah u mean smth different
15:00:07Schnueffhm .rockbox/default.lang is not good
15:00:27Bagderno, it doesn't sound good enough
15:00:44Schnueffone cant see which language it is
15:01:06elinenbeI think there should ba a folder /.rockbox/fonts /.rockbox/wps /.rockbox/lang where the respective settings are placed, and there be menu (setting) items that relate to these locations
15:01:13Schnueffwhat about some language code like 'en' 'de' and store that in the RTC
15:02:29BagderI'm leaning towards Zagor's solution, that we allow ".rockbox/[name].lng" and we store the 'name' in the settings secttor
15:02:49BagderZagor: comments on this?
15:03:18Schnueffmaybe we should start, as elinenbe suggests, to have a directory hierarchiy under .rockbox
15:03:32Bagderpossibly that too, yes
15:03:59Bagderthen we could have settings code that automaticly shows alternatives from the contents of those directories
15:04:05Schnuefffor example, one could look for .rockbox/lang/[name].lng first and then for .rockbox/[name].lng
15:04:09SchnueffBagder: yes that too
15:04:29Schnueffthat would avoid walking through many dir levels just too change the font
15:05:19elinenbefor the end user it would be nicest to show have all the settings (wps, lang, fnt) in the settings menu
15:06:36elinenbeI found (very) little bug
15:07:42ZagorBagder: /.rockbox/[name].lng sounds good to me
15:07:55elinenbeif you have a large font on the screen, and then switch to a smaller one, sometimes the tree does not update properly −− (instead of showing 7 rows of info, it only shows 6 until I press a button)
15:08:07BagderZagor: are you going to the saving of the font and wps this way?
15:08:50Schnueffhm so .lng is for the binary language files while .lang is for ascii language files/
15:08:53*Zagor just got a call from the dishwasher company. They're sending me a new one...
15:09:07BagderSchnueff: yes
15:09:13elinenbedo we have any binary .lng files yet?
15:09:21Zagorbagder does :-)
15:09:23Bagderelinenbe: since about 30 minutes ;-)
15:09:27LinusNThe remote doesn' work properly with the Archos firmware - but works great with Rockbox loaded.

15:09:30BagderZagor: you do too when you update ;-)
15:09:41Zagornag nag
15:09:59Bagderand I manged to add it without going non-green ;-)
15:10:29elinenbewhen you update where are the .lng files?
15:10:42Bagderuh, they're built with the 'binlang' tool
15:10:57BagderI guess we should do that autmaticly on the site
15:11:42Schnueffshall i resubmit the backlight-on-when-charging patch to the patch tracker?

15:16:13elinenbescrolling is messed up still.
15:16:28elinenbethe first time many things scroll, they go the whole line, and then redraw
15:16:29Zagorah, right. i want that fixed too. any takers?
15:17:02elinenbecan scrolling be pixel by pixel (and adjustable in settings)? that way if you like the character scrolling, you can set it to 8 pixels at a time?
15:17:17Bagderyes, it shall be made pixel wise
15:17:22elinenbefont loading should give some sort of feedback.
15:17:34Zagorit does: it shows the new font
15:17:58Bagderthe lang loading has no feedback, but I couldn't think of any nice ;-)

21:15:26freshmakerZagor: You did some work on lcd_putsxy(), lcd_getstringsize(), et al. But I think, there are still some strange things in lcd_puts()
21:16:31freshmakerthe x/y pixel positions seem to depend on the average char width of the string: xmargin + x*w / strlen(str)
21:16:47freshmakerthat can't be correct, can it?
21:16:55Zagorright, that's because puts uses char positions. most unfortunate...
21:17:30Zagorluckily, very few calls set x to anything but 0
21:17:47freshmakermaybe the step size for lcd_puts should be fontheight x fontheight

21:19:32Zagory is not a problem. only x is.
21:20:29freshmakerthen the x step size should be the character width averaged over the whole charset
21:21:03Zagorany way we make it will be incorrect. we can just aswell simply use the width of 'A'...

21:23:29freshmakerdid the bitmap format change within the last week? I have some problems to get my old smooth scrolling code running with the new font scheme...
21:24:05Zagorthe font struct changed some types, but nothing fundamentally
21:24:49Zagoryou should probably look over that code anyway, it's likely more complex than necessary due to previously having to cater to both player and recorder

23:55:23Zagori think we'll simply change scroll speed into step size. changing the speed from 15 to 30 makes very little difference.
23:57:59freshmakeri'd prefer to have two control knobs. an optimal scroll speed depends on the font that is used.
