00:04:15Empeethreeoh yea ive heard of him
00:04:24midknight2k3hey bod
00:05:13DyneOne thing I wanted to ask about though, Is There a way I can stiffen the buttons...they are a little loose...

00:05:34midknight2k3they're just like that
00:05:48Empeethreea bit of Blu Tack may help

00:06:06Dyneand they randomly get pressed as well
00:06:08midknight2k3can't really fix it
00:06:19Empeethreeget some blue-tack
00:06:44DyneI guess I need to void the warranty now.. ;o)
00:07:25EmpeethreeCan the Player have fonts as long as the letters fit within the character matrix?
00:07:49midknight2k3no, emeethreee
00:08:02Empeethreeoh ok

01:19:33LinusNthank god i have a good set of filters
01:20:34midknight2k3is that new set of sound filter things coming along?
01:20:38midknight2k3the clip preventors?
01:21:55LinusNno, mail filters
01:22:25midknight2k3i meant the thing that checks the settings and makes sure that they won't clip
01:22:56LinusNah, no, i haven't worked any more on that
01:23:17LinusNhaven't hacked much rockbox at all
01:23:32midknight2k3that's and odd term
01:23:37midknight2k3hacking your own project :)
01:24:00LinusNbut i am working on frame-accurate splitting in recording mode plus retro-recording
01:24:32midknight2k3retro recording
01:24:38midknight2k3can it be more than 30s?
01:24:41joshnlinus, I have a question
01:24:55LinusNyes, but not much more
01:25:08LinusNnot on the highest quality level
01:25:12joshnI'm porting Rockbox to another player, but the bootloader doesn't copy the code from flash to dram.
01:25:15LinusNjoshn: shoot
01:25:40LinusNah, we spoke a while ago about that didn't we?
01:25:40joshnI don't know assembler to know how to do it.\
01:25:49joshnI finally got the player
01:26:03midknight2k3which player?
01:26:06LinusNwhich player is that
01:26:13joshnthe NEO55
01:26:45joshnhardware-wise, it's almost exactly like their portable jukebox
01:26:57joshnadds an am/fm tuner and a car amp
01:27:13joshnit's also almost identical to the Archos recorder
01:27:18joshnexcept no recording
01:27:42LinusNhardware info?
01:28:07joshnsame CPU, mpeg chips, dram, etc.
01:28:20joshndifferent LCD, but I wrote code for that
01:28:37joshndifferent tuner, I think, but I haven't got that far :-)
01:28:40LinusNhow does it load the firmware?
01:29:07joshnit's a lot like the flashing that [IDC]Dragon did
01:29:30joshnit has a bootloader that is in another flash chip
01:29:40joshnso you can load bogus firmware, and recover
01:30:12joshnI think the firmware is resposible for copying itself to DRAM, but LCD, etc. is already init
01:30:34LinusNso you need to flash it
01:30:56joshnyou hold down a certain key on boot, which brings up the flash util
01:31:07joshnit looks for a file called "neo55.bin
01:31:11 Quit mecraw ("Trillian (")
01:31:11joshnin root
01:31:17LinusNsounds easy
01:31:22joshnthe bin file is unscrambled
01:31:25joshnit is
01:32:22joshnthe problem is that I haven't set up an RS232 connection yet, so I have to pull out the HDD and copy in the file every time I change the firmware
01:32:55joshnwould also like to set up gdb or something like that, but that can come later...
01:32:57LinusNbut you want to run from RAM
01:33:12joshnI think that's best...?
01:33:35joshnis it faster to access DRAM than the flash, or not?
01:33:53joshnIf there's no advantage, I don't really care.
01:34:27joshnBTW, I do have the .h and .o files for the old firmware.
01:34:30LinusNit depends on the flash of course
01:35:09joshnthere are two chips, an SST 39VF040,
01:35:24joshnand an EliteMT M11L16161A
01:35:36joshnthe archos has the SST, doesn't it?
01:36:24joshnoh, and I have the schematics
01:36:50LinusNyes, archos has the sst
01:37:13LinusNok, so what do you need from me?
01:37:49joshnIs it worth it to copy the code into DRAM?
01:38:26LinusNyou can of course do a benchmark to prove it
01:38:31joshnI don't know assembler, so I don't know how to set it up to copy the code in
01:40:08LinusNok, your firmware is started by the boot loader, right?
01:40:16joshnthat's right
01:40:29joshnI can get you a copy of the original firmware, if you want...
01:40:37LinusNno need
01:41:22LinusNi assume that the boot loader moves the vector table pointer and jumps to your reset vector?
01:41:58joshnor to the boot vector...
01:42:11joshnthere is a boot vector and a reset vector, right?
01:42:18joshnit's the first one
01:43:26LinusNthen we need to write a position independent piece that copies the code to RAM and executes it
01:43:31LinusNshould be pretty easy
01:43:43joshnok, if you say so... :-)

01:45:59midknight2k3Linus: rockbox started by taking the ajbrec.ajz, turning it into a bin file and then what?
01:46:15midknight2k3after the bin file was produced what did you do?
01:46:16LinusNmidknight2k3: huh?
01:46:48midknight2k3what does a bin file do for you? is it encrypted? is it all the code?
01:47:17LinusNwell, we started with examining the hardware to find out which CPU it had
01:47:54LinusNthen we knew what to look for when trying to crack the scrambling algorithm
01:49:18LinusNwhen that was done, we disassembled parts of the archos firmware to find out how the hardware ws designed
01:50:58midknight2k3halt pls
01:51:16midknight2k3how did you disasssemble?
01:52:22LinusNusing the sh2d tool
01:52:45midknight2k3which takes an ajbrec.ajz and makes it a bin filoe?
01:52:53midknight2k3or does it start with a bin file?
01:53:49LinusNit takes a bin file
01:54:05LinusNsh2d is a generic SH disassembler
01:54:19midknight2k3bin file turns into what?
01:54:34LinusNinto a text file with the assembler code
01:55:36joshnLinus: I just sent you an email
01:55:37midknight2k3i guess where i am going with this is, if the rio riot firmware was an exe and i got the bin file from it, what would go from there? sh2d would disassemble/decrypt it?

02:26:52midknight2k3Linus, can you code the redzone on hte peak meteR?
02:27:30LinusNi could, but i don't see the point
02:27:41midknight2k3why not?
02:27:55midknight2k3it helps for recording-if there's a menu option it's more than great
02:29:19LinusNfirst of all, how do you define the "red zone"?
02:29:28Plugh0db mark
02:29:31Plughfor recording
02:29:44midknight2k3well originally it was going to be 20pixels from edge of screen
02:29:50midknight2k3more or less to taste
02:30:03midknight2k3but now i am thinking it should be set up so it works in dbfs and linear
02:30:06midknight2k3is that hard?
02:30:13Plughyou want to set the level such that it isn't overdriven but also isn't too low
02:30:19midknight2k3so it is basically saying inver video for last 15db or so
02:31:02midknight2k3but if it is simpler, 15pixels from screen edge is good i guess
02:31:14LinusNas long as you don't hit the top, you should be safe
02:31:27midknight2k3"hit the top"?
02:31:43midknight2k3of the red zone?
02:32:14midknight2k3the main point is to have the level between just under and just over the red zone (aka on the red line)
02:32:23midknight2k3or maybe reaching in
02:32:36midknight2k3i realy don't know as i havent tested it yet lol
02:33:54LinusNok, i see what you mean now
02:34:05midknight2k3makes more sense?
02:34:21midknight2k3it's supposed to be useful, not just some "neat" function
02:34:42midknight2k3(for more info on NEAT functions, read icr logs of last week where i tried to get Zagor to make the red led into a kyeypress indicator)
02:41:21midknight2k3so what's the verdict, linus?
02:41:50LinusNdid you file a feature request?
02:41:59midknight2k3tracktheripper did
02:42:05midknight2k3a few months ago
02:42:14midknight2k3Zagor seems to think it is useless
02:42:18midknight2k3no help there
02:42:21midknight2k3Bagder as well i think
02:42:27midknight2k3so Linus is the only hope
02:43:28LinusNhehe, i too think it't pretty useless, but it also seems pretty easy to do
02:43:49midknight2k3i was trying to do it myself
02:43:52midknight2k3earhurts helped
02:43:55midknight2k3like a tutorial
02:44:06midknight2k3but it got delayed and never happened :(
02:44:30midknight2k3i did all the defining but telling it to draw the redzone just never happened

02:57:52Plughdid you do something weird like reverse the polarity on the charger or use one that didn't come with the unit?
02:58:35FamaCeloxah - - i have an extra motherboard, can i unsolder the rectifier from that one - if so, do you know how to identify it?
02:59:07Plughit's usually a rectangular device with a hole in it and 3-4 leads
02:59:27Plughdunno about the one in the Archos units though
02:59:27FamaCeloxhmmm .... brb ...
03:00:28midknight2k3if you mean a computer motherboard...
03:00:45midknight2k3they don't have the same type of rectifier as an archos
03:00:52midknight2k3not usually
03:01:06LinusNthe rectifier that usually dies is a IR7416
03:01:20Plughcomputers generally use the power supply for rectification
03:02:00CtcpIgnored 5 channel CTCP requests in 15 minutes and 38 seconds at the last flood

03:02:58*LinusN doesn't like tiny urls
03:03:15midknight2k3he told you ;)
03:03:53PlughI don't like long ones ;)
03:04:09midknight2k3they can be violated
03:04:44midknight2k3like the above
03:04:53midknight2k3but a 5 instead of a nine is something an apple store
03:04:57midknight2k3and a 4 is something else
03:05:00midknight2k3too insecure
03:05:20Plughwindows IRC clients suck. They make people inconsiderate of console users
03:05:51FamaCeloxi was looking for the jb20 motherboard i replaced a couple of months back ...
03:05:53Plughso people will paste these HUGE urls and expect everyone in the world to simply click on it to bring it up in their browser
03:06:09Plughbut people like me need to copy and paste the link into a browser
03:06:24midknight2k3watch me carefully

03:09:25FamaCeloxplugh> the archos tech told me that their power supply puts out 14v and the rectifier drops it to 9v, I had the unit connected to a radio shack 12v car lighter adapter set @ 12v / 3amps for a long time .... if the rectifier went, I think it just went cause of age ...
03:09:47Plughage and too much current :)
03:09:54midknight2k3this is also me
03:10:13Plughtoo much effort. Two open clients

06:23:36Guesthey, i tried to run the ucl file in the jukebox, but it said "incompatible version", i then tried to run the rockbox.flash file in the.rockbox directory, and it had the same message
06:24:01RoentgenWhat i'm trying to get at is that when I plug my archos in or try to turn it on it won't make it
06:24:02Guestbut the file i am trying is from 8-11

06:24:19RoentgenI'm not sure if it is the hard drive or the batteries

20:08:56zxdcfhey can you answer 2 questions i have about rockbox?
20:10:15PlughI can answer them. Dunno if it'll be correct though ;)
20:11:36zxdcfdoes rockbox have a true random player?
20:11:41zxdcfcause the archos's randomizer sucks ass
20:11:57zxdcfand secondly does the rockbox let you randomize through different directories or only the current?
20:13:34MiChAeLoLrockbox owns
20:13:49MiChAeLoLmine boots up and is resuming the last played song in 3 secs
20:13:54MiChAeLoLcause i flashed it to mem
20:14:34Heszxdcf: yes, the randomizer in rockbox is very good - uses a cryptography strength pseudorandom generator
20:15:02Plughzxdcf: the randomizer only works on one dir or a playlist
20:15:12Hesyou need to create a playlist to randomize over multiple directories, but in current development versions you can do that in rockbox
20:15:42zxdcfi also read on the page taht loading it might lock up the archos? what's that about?
20:15:53zxdcfloading the .mod file i mean
20:17:55Plughwas that referring to cvs or the 2.0 build?
20:18:24zxdcfim not sure
20:20:16zxdcfQ22. I tried one of your firmware files and now I can't access my hard disk!
20:20:16zxdcf When I turn on my jukebox, it says:

20:20:16zxdcfA22. Your hard disk has been password protected. We're not 100% sure why it
20:21:58Plugha lot of the info on the web pages is out of date. I suggest checking the mail list archives and the IRC logs
20:22:44zxdcfso is that no longer an issue?
20:23:01zxdcfcause that's my only apprehension against installing it right now
20:25:10Plughdon't let it stop you from installing it. Just don't flash it till you feel comfortable
20:25:30Plughyou can always plug into the USB and remove the new fw
20:25:45Heszxdcf: that issue hasn't happened lately
20:25:47Plughgo back to the one that came installed on the unit

20:39:33zxdcfarchos v. 5.0XX

20:42:52PlughI just did a cvs update ;)
20:43:25Plughhaven't updated in 3 days
20:43:39Plughand missed a playlist feature
20:43:53zxdcfthe menu is pretty expansive
20:44:02zxdcfdoes the manual cover all of it?
20:45:40Plughit covers 2.0
20:45:47Plughbut not daily
20:47:03zxdcfdo i have to screw around with the buffer or anything
20:47:05zxdcfor is it all set
20:51:23zxdcfthe anti-skip buffer i mean
20:51:59Plughdon't worry about all that
20:52:09Plughanti-skip buffer will chew your battery
20:52:17Plughonly use it if it's an issue

20:54:18zxdcfmy last question is
20:54:35zxdcfis the spindown default the same as the default on the factory archos?
20:56:14hardeepzxdcf: probably not
20:56:52***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
20:57:10zxdcflonger or shorter?
21:00:13hardeepzxdcf: no idea... the factory firmware doesn't expose this info to the user
21:01:03zxdcfi suppose it does dont
21:01:10zxdcflong day heh
21:04:28zxdcfwhat's caption backlight?
21:04:53hardeepzxdcf: turns on the backlight during a track change
21:06:11zxdcfthe reason i went looking for a firmware upgrade is cause i have a large folder of music
21:06:17zxdcfthat i just put on random when i drive around
21:06:35zxdcfand i noticed the archos going through the same 20 songs out of my 400+ songs in there
21:06:57MTnot to be rude, but its better to use a playlist for that sort of thing
21:06:58hardeepzxdcf: the archos firmware has many issues... =)
21:07:28MTits still better not to have lots of large directories of music, and you only need that on the archos firmware as their playlist stuff is frankly crap
21:08:03zxdcfi suppose
21:08:40zxdcfi dont see the inherent advantage of a playlist over just randomly playing songs
21:09:51MTit takes a lot of battery power to search through a large directory
21:09:56MTso theres the inherent reason
21:10:10MTit also takes more memory to then keep all of those directory entries in memory
21:10:32MTand then that reduces the amount of buffer space you have left for mp3 data
21:10:47MTand so the hd has to spin up more often to fill it up, also killing batteries
21:11:21Hesbecause of memory usage reason rockbox can handle _huge_ playlists with all the tracks you can fit on the hard disk. the amount of files it can handle in a directory is much more limited, although tunable these days.

21:24:01Zagoranybody know a cheap graphics card that handles 1600x1200 DVI?
21:25:53MTmatrox p650?
21:26:51Zagoryeah, but it's not exactly cheap
21:27:47Zagori have a nice g450 card which claims 2048x1536 resolution.
21:27:48MT80 or so
21:28:12Zagoronly in the very fine print it says that dvi is limited to 1280x1024 :(

22:08:18Zagorhmm, a GeforceFX 5200 card seems to a nice low-cost choice
22:13:12HesI ended up with an ATI Radeon 8500 when I went shopping for the successor of my Matrox G200
22:13:53 Join Plugh [0] (
22:13:57Hesdunno if it fits your definition of low-cost, but it's pretty speedy but not in the high-end price range
22:14:25Hesnot that the linux support would be excellent quite yet.
22:14:33Plughwhy'd the bot kick me for flooding while I was idle?
22:15:33ZagorHes: i'd like to avoid a fan
22:15:52ZagorPlugh: it enqueues the kicks. they time out after a while, but apparently he was still mad at you :)
22:16:40Plughfuck you, logbot :P
