02:40:12moose-manHey peeps, Im a noob here with a new Archos fm recorder. Sorry for being a dickhead noob asking question,but i was hoping somebody could assist me
02:40:39PsycoXulfm recorder's only work with rockbox while plugged in right now
02:40:59PsycoXulbecause they use a different kind of battery, the power handling code thinks it's dead otherwise
02:41:49moose-manahh i see, is this in all the versions, or just 1.x through 1.4 ?
02:42:16PsycoXulafaik 1.4 doesn't work at all on it actualy
02:42:20PsycoXulor earlier
02:42:30PsycoXulthis is with the cvs/daily builds
02:43:03moose-manSo if i may ask, what do you suggest?
02:43:31PsycoXulwait a week for it to get tweeked to the point of working normal
02:44:20moose-manIs it normal for the unit to not able to do anything other than charge while plugged in, in other words im unable to actually turn it on and use it while it is plugged in.
02:44:34PsycoXuldunno, that sounds weird
02:44:44PsycoXulit should work hehe
02:45:02moose-manShould i go ahead and remove the firmware then?
02:45:12PsycoXulremove which firmware? heh
02:45:37moose-manThe rocks 1.4
02:45:41PsycoXuloh probably
02:45:48moose-manand put back the 1.3 from archos ?
02:46:04PsycoXuli mean if rockbox only works while it's plugged in and the unit won't turned on while plugged in i guess there's no use to having rockbox on there yet :p
02:46:23PsycoXuland like i said i don't think 1.4 works on it at all
02:46:36PsycoXulthere were some other issues that have been solved since 1.4
02:47:27PsycoXulthat t-shirt reads "if you're already this close why don't you just suck my dick"
02:47:44moose-manIf i completely remove everything without having the .ajz file, will it do anything?
02:48:01PsycoXulit'll boot to the in-rom firmware
02:48:16moose-manSo is it cool if i just completely remove it all ?
02:48:19PsycoXulit always boots to the in-rom firmware anyway, it's just the in-rom firmware checks for the .ajz and loads it if its there
02:48:23 Quit matsl ("Client Exiting")
02:49:00PsycoXulyeah but the in-rom firmware's older than the .ajz it came with if it came with an .ajz heh

02:52:38moose-manWhen i have the unit plugged in, it will not let me do anything, if i turn it on, it flashes and just shows the charging screen as you can see here
02:53:10moose-manSorry about the low quality
02:53:15MeRWiNmoose-man: what are you trying to do?
02:53:43moose-manWell what im asking is if its normal for the player not to load and play music while it is plugged in.
02:53:46MeRWiNmoose-man: you should be able to use it while it's charging
02:53:53MeRWiNmoose-man: my fm recorder can
02:54:08MeRWiNyou might try starting it up first and then plugging it in
02:54:27moose-manTrying now....
02:54:33PsycoXuli can see me in the background
02:54:48PsycoXulis that 4 mousepads?

04:24:42GuestI see a number of Archos Player hard drive web pages. Is there one for the FM Recorder? Is it different? :)
04:26:18GuestSorry, I meant a page on upgrading the HD from the stock 20gb to, say, 40gb?
04:31:14ricIIhmm *un)shuffle robs my sleep..
04:32:54 Quit Guest ("Leaving")
04:33:47ricIIwhat if I just store parent.offset in my file, I will always be able to find that.
04:34:01webmindall the freaks live at night :)
04:34:26webmindstill busy with playlist ?
04:35:11ricIIyep considerd about 6 way to work around my prob..
04:35:27webmindah.. so choose the best one ?
04:36:26ricIIproblem is there are a lot of side factors to consider..
04:39:11ricIInow lets see if I can do 'all' with this approach
04:41:13webmindhm k
04:41:25ricIImain problem was unshuffle & resume with mixed mode inserts
04:41:41webminduhm k
04:43:35ricIIunshuffle would now mean: qsort orginal m3u, replay patches
04:44:14webmindqsort ?
04:44:32webmindunshuffle.. sorry
04:46:27PsycoXulwhats all this about anyway
04:47:12ricIIPsycoXul: new playlist code, featuring queue,insert, append & delete.
04:47:32PsycoXulwhat exactly is queuing
04:47:37PsycoXulhows it different from a playlist
04:48:01ricIIplay after this song but don't make it permanent as insert would
04:48:13PsycoXulis that really worth so much trouble
04:48:36PsycoXulwhy not just support some sorta tags in the playlist that allow changing of settings and other useful things and include one that says "remove this track from playlist after playing it"
04:48:40ricIIit would make us able to create playlists on the fly..
04:48:40webmindit's a lovely feature
04:49:16PsycoXulon the fly playlists is great
04:49:23PsycoXulbut they're still just files on the disk
04:49:36ricIIaswell recursion
04:49:50PsycoXulthat sounds more like something specific to the playlist building UI
04:50:11PsycoXulnot something for the backend to worry about
04:50:14PsycoXulbut i dunno
04:50:54ricIIbackend sould deliver hooks like insert,append (and be able to handle shuffle & resume)
04:51:01PsycoXulimo everything should be as simple and generic as possible... maybe you're trying to go for that, but to me it doesn't really sound like it heh
04:51:11PsycoXulhow is shuffle and resume a problem for the playlist backend
04:51:55PsycoXulshuffle's just done with random indexes isn't it?
04:52:14ricIIresume must recreate the state from scratch..
04:52:33PsycoXulwell thats why the playlist as created is saved to a file
04:52:41PsycoXulthe random seed is saved to recreate the same shuffle
04:52:54PsycoXuland the resume index is saved to say where to start back from
04:53:07PsycoXulwhats the problem?
04:53:09ricIIbut this is linear in time.. shuffle distroys this.
04:53:37PsycoXulwe've had working resuming shuffled playlists for a long time
04:53:40ricIIaspecialy when people start to insert while in shuffle mode..
04:53:51PsycoXulah i see
04:53:55ricIII known :(
04:54:21PsycoXuladding to it after shuffling is messy
04:55:36PsycoXulyeah i remember adding to a playlist that i had shut off while playing shuffled
04:55:46PsycoXuland turning it back on and it resumed to a different song, totally different shuffle
04:57:14PsycoXulso how do you get around that
04:57:19ricIIuser has shuffles add 6.7 after 3, unshuflled sould be
04:58:46ricIIi can do that now...
04:59:06ricIIusing less memory..
04:59:40PsycoXulso say they have shufflesd adds 6.7 after 3 and unshuffled should be but what if they really wanted to add 6.7 before 5 and want it to unshuffle to :p
05:00:45ricIIwe have to define a insert before next song & a insert after this song button. code has no problem here.
05:01:22PsycoXulseems weird to attatch insertions to either of the songs surrounding them to me
05:02:41ricIIseems weird to me to in shuffle mode, but I want to do something sensible for 'insert' which means play after what I hearing now..
05:03:12PsycoXulif you're shuffling a playlist, it sortof implies that the original playlist is sorta linear
05:03:43ricIIso are all modifications (in time)
05:03:47PsycoXuland if you're inserting to it while shuffling you could be either adding a spot of linearity or adding more effectively randomness
05:04:30PsycoXulin either case it seems to me like it should unshuffle back to a linear playlist
05:04:30ricIIrandom insert would more mean append as play somewhere after this..
05:04:50PsycoXulwell i mean linear and random as in track order
05:04:58PsycoXul1. vs
05:05:09ricIIconsiderd that to, but linerty is found in the file offset...
05:05:55ricIIonly thing to consider is insert after a queued song, this parent gets deleted..
05:06:24PsycoXulso it boils down to something inserted into a shuffled playlist is in limbo for unshuffling and you just wanna do something reasonable with it, so you attatch it to before or after tracks
05:07:02PsycoXulricII: heh
05:07:46ricIIand ofcourse take care of my other problems aswell...
05:07:54PsycoXulpersonally i'd just sort the limbo insertions in with the alphabetical linearity of the original playlist or something heh
05:08:03PsycoXulwhen unshuffling
05:09:24ricIIbut what if a user startoff in normal mode insert a few specific songs, shuffles and unshuffles, souldn't that undo the shuffling..
05:09:49PsycoXulwell yeah but the inserted songs aren't in limbo if they were done before shuffling
05:09:56PsycoXulthey're already a static part of the playlist
05:11:05ricIIbut I would like to have its behavoir defined...
05:11:58PsycoXulwell yeah that'd be nice hehe
05:14:40ricIIsince a queued songs deletion is anotated, (and insertion must have happend before) there souldn't be a problem using it's offset as a parrent...
05:17:11ricIIhmm no extra memory needed, only the resume codes gets a little slower

16:51:37Nibblerbut u can load the original firmware neways from withing rockbox?
16:51:57SeeSchlossbut I would like to use it on a FM recorder
16:52:37SeeSchlossbecause when the unit is unplugged, I can't boot rockbox, and I can't boot archos either
16:52:44Nibbleris rockbox anything like usefull on RM recorder already?
16:54:01ricIISeeSchloss isn't that the wrong way around ?
16:54:06SeeSchlossRockbox is really better than archos on FM recorder, except that the backlight acts strangely and that it can't work if the charger is unplugged
16:55:38ricIIrockbox sould be fixed on the FM, and it already has the functionality to boot something else..
16:57:31SeeSchlossok, but I won't be able to access internet from tomorrow morning to friday evening, and I'd like to use rockbox at evenings (with the charger) and archos during the day (when I can't plug the charger)
16:58:41SeeSchlossdo you have a better idea ?
17:01:45ricIIfix rockbox so it boots,
17:02:55ricIII heard rockbox thinks the batteries are empty when unplugged...
17:03:20SeeSchlossok, good idea. But I have no idea of what I have to do and how to do and...

17:35:38SeeSchlosshmm I have absolutely no idea of what would happen if I did this
17:36:07breakerSet #define BATTERY_LEVEL_SHUTDOWN 0 (and the other values for empty) and recompile. It shouldn't shut down any more.
17:36:44ricIIok :) that even better..
17:37:12breakerIf reading the voltage for FM recorder works (tomorrow?), I'll let you know (in the ML).
17:37:44breakerSetting the values in powermgmt.h is just a workaround for today..

18:27:25SeeSchlossthere was 2.00V during about 1 minute
18:28:01breakerAnd in the other menu (View IO ports), if you press a key there it refreshed the values.
18:28:09SeeSchlossbut Phantom it is not because I pluged and unpluged very fast, when I unpluged it it was plugged since 20 minutes
18:28:18breakerDows it always show about 3,6 V?
18:29:24SeeSchlosshmm, it showed 0.00 V
18:30:09breakerDidn't you write that it showed 3.38V 9%?
18:30:23SeeSchlossthen the disk spined up and it showed about 3V (I didn't see what was after the ,), then 2.26 because the backlight was on
18:30:56breakerThat's all ok, I'm only interested if it shows always values between 2 and 4 V.

18:31:26SeeSchlossand music is playing
18:31:31SeeSchlossAN6: 004
18:32:09breakerAha. The voltage is calculated out of AN6 (recorder).
18:32:20breakerBut how to calculate it for FM recorder??
18:32:36breakerAN6 seems not to work.
18:33:39SeeSchlosshmm is it normal that each time when I press a key AN6 changes ? (between 000 and 003)

18:43:49SeeSchlossbut AN3 is always exactly 3FF while AN0 is 3F7-3FF
18:46:51breakerAN7 should be the external power voltage. Can you tell me the value with charger connected and with charger not connected, please?

18:54:17breakerLinusN: Hm? Backlight frequency?

19:01:21LinusNhow does the liion charging circuit work?
19:01:34breakerI don't know. :)
19:01:44breakerI read about LiIon charging in the net.
19:01:51breakerSimply charging with 4.2
19:01:52LinusNhave you determined which chip it is?
19:01:54breaker4.2 V.
19:02:14breakerI don't have a FM recorder.
19:02:23LinusNfrom what i have heard, liion charging is trickier than nimh
19:03:34breakerI don't think so. Have a look at
19:04:10breakerThey charge with 4.2V, the current is reduced automatically (because of the constant voltage).
19:04:36breakerThat could mean we can always turn on the charger for the FM recorder and don't have to do anything.
19:07:21LinusNthat must mean that they have an external charging chip
19:07:43breakerwait a minute, a telephone call..

19:25:16ScheeI know, I thought it was registered
19:25:36breakerIf not and we don't turn the charger off when it goes above 4,2 V, we destroy the battery, right.
19:25:48LinusNbreaker: right
19:26:39ricIIand maybe the archos withit
19:26:52breakerSomeone with a FM Recorder has to check what happens when the Archos firmware runs. I think the voltage goes up to 4,2 v and then stays there.
19:26:56LinusNso the device shuts off when the backlight goes off?
19:27:13breakerNo. AN6 only doesn't show a battery voltage.
19:27:37LinusNso maybe it just isn't a battery voltage at all?
19:27:43breakerWe could make backlight_on(), get_voltage, backlight_off()
19:27:55breakerLinusN: Could be.
19:28:15LinusNtry to set the freq to 1 hz and see how it behaves
19:28:22breakerBut The battery voltage shown in debug/IO ports is calculated out of AN6.
19:28:40breakerand it shows 3,6 v when backlught is on.
19:28:46LinusNbreaker: that code is for the normal recorders
19:29:03LinusNwe don't know if an6 measures the same thing on the fm recorder
19:29:15breakerYes, right.
19:29:27breakerBut 3,6 V could be the battery voltage.
19:29:36LinusNcould be
19:29:53breakerAnd because I have no FM model here, what should we do?
