00:41:38MTid use a host PC to extract messages into a format and style that suits us
00:41:43PlughI know. But you're still going to need to have the data stored somewhere
00:41:46Plughuse maildir
00:41:58Plughestablished standard
00:42:07MTfor personal computers
00:42:09Plughyou can just tar it up and untar to the archos
00:42:19MTnot for embedded devices with 64k of usable ram
00:42:33MTplus i dont use maildir on my server
00:42:38MTso not likely to do that :)
00:42:38Plughthat's why you'd need to use maildir
00:42:46Plughbecause mbox would be friggin huge
00:42:54MTi wouldnt use EITHER
00:43:07Plughwhy not?
00:43:15MTbecause i dont need either
00:43:19Plughmaildir is just folders and subfolders
00:43:36Plughand individual files representing individual messages

11:45:07Galikhi track
11:45:17Galikr u tracktheripper?
11:53:34trackwhy are there so many people here and so little chat?
11:56:38GalikWell I connect to the channel automatically when my pc boots. I'm often off doing other things
11:57:08GalikPerhaps it's because rockbox works so well :)
12:01:22***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
12:03:08trackrockbox still has a couple of missing features
12:09:52Galikhehe yeah like making the toast :)
12:10:19*Galik wonders whether that would be possible through the usb...
12:10:21trackI never filed such a request
12:11:02dwihnoGalik: nah, but using serial communication it should be possible
12:11:34trackall you have to do is perform a few full formats then the Archos will heat up enough to burn bread....
12:12:27trackthere was a feature request "tea maker" once
12:13:11GalikWell if tea maker ever gets implemented then toast is a must!
12:13:29trackthe tea maker was rejected :-(
12:13:52trackactually the "war stopper" request should be implemented
12:14:03Galikwhat's that?
12:14:09Galikoh i see
12:16:29trackor how about a software touchscreen?
12:17:12GalikMight make the archos go haywire when it's in my pocket
12:19:24trackCould the LCD ever be replaced with a colour LCD like the one found in a digital camera?
12:20:31Galikdoubt it
12:22:59trackso you could watch movies on the Archos? :-)
12:27:01Galikthat could prolly be done. i'd like that feature
12:28:21trackyea but did u read the comments?
12:29:08Galikyes. but i'd draw my own icons for my albums so they'd be distinctive
12:29:22Galikyou could even have a CDDB type repository of them
12:29:32Galikso people couold share them
12:29:49tracka 5x7 1 bit image?
12:29:54Galikthey don't have to be the 'original' cover picture
12:30:09Galikthe FM recorder has a bigger screen than that
12:30:10tracku tell Zagor that :-)
12:30:27trackyea but what abou the Player?
12:30:39Galikplayer? who cares :P
12:33:37trackwhats wrong wiv the Player?
12:33:44trackthey are still being made
12:34:30GalikNothing wrong with it. It's just that I don't own one so it doesn't affect me ;)
12:35:12trackIve noticed Archos no longer make the FM Recorder
12:35:54Galikshame. what would i do if i droped mine off a cliff?
12:36:16Galik>> other than jump down to find it...
12:36:42trackthey still make the normal Recorders and Players
12:37:10Galiki think the FM bit wasn't really worth it. I never use the radio
12:37:38trackthey still make the Ondio which has a radio tuner built in!
12:37:53Galikbesides there must be some players out there that do ogg by now... I'd prolly have to buy one of them
12:38:06trackogg is very hard to decode
12:38:17Galikit's my most important feature
12:38:25zerio karma, baby
12:38:35Galikyes but now i think there is a h/w decoder
12:38:38trackeven in Soundforge it took ages to make an Ogg file from a WAV file
12:38:51zeand there's some other one that does ogg too
12:38:58trackand besides, I feel MP3Pro has better sound quality than Ogg
12:39:05trackive compared MP3Pro to Ogg
12:39:16Galikwell i can't justify buying a new one till my archos goes tits up
12:39:23trackand theres always WMA :-)
12:39:42zei haven't heard anything to indicate that mp3pro's really even any better than mp3
12:39:44GalikMP3Pro is nonfree
12:39:59GalikBesides even mp3 is good enough quality for me
12:40:01zebeside the fact that ogg vorbis is free and more future-oriented
12:40:04trackwell an MP3Pro file at 64kbs has similar sound quality to an MP3 at 128kbs
12:40:12Galikyou never tell through tiny headphones anyway
12:40:29zeok here's the other one that plays ogg, the neuros
12:40:55zetrack: yeah supposedly, i hear it's just some silly voodoo to do a crappy replacement of frequencies it cuts out
12:40:55Galikarchos should really think about ogg for future players
12:41:48zemy pda plays ogg
12:42:03zeit's just too bad it doesn't have an HD, and despite that also only has a couple hours battery life
12:42:09Galikso did mine before someone swaped it for a broken one
12:42:42zebut yeah that neuros player does vorbis, and so does/will the rio karma which looks mad sexy
12:43:13Galikare they likely to be programable like the archos?
12:43:17zethe karma's what i would get next if i were to upgrade any time soon
12:43:34Galikdo they run linux?
12:43:50zehell if i know, go look it up if you're interested
12:46:28trackbut Archos are still adamant about supporting MP3 only
12:46:37trackthey aren't interested in WMA or Ogg or MP3 Pro
12:46:58Galikthen i won't buy archos when mine bites the dust
12:47:11Galikneuros looks like the business
12:47:26trackyea what you have to realise is that the Neuros is prob SDMI compliant
12:47:32trackthe Archoes are not SDMI compliant
12:47:46zei dunno about that
12:47:57GalikI don't have a problem with that.
12:48:06zemy friend's all into the neuros, always talking about it and wishing he had one
12:48:12GalikIf the mp3 is not digitally stamped than it can't be stopped
12:48:29zeand i don't think he'd go for one that had anything shitty like that about it
12:48:34GalikSo I can rip my own CD's still
12:48:46trackyes but like on the Creative Labs Nomad it prevents you uploading MP3s to someone elses's PC
12:49:04zei've got a zen
12:49:08zeafaik it don't prevent anything
12:49:19tracknot only that the Archos is the only HD player Im aware of that supports drag and drop in My Computer
12:49:22GalikHmmm doubt it. The synchronization software is Open Source i think
12:49:30trackwith the Zen you have to use the shitty Playcenter software
12:49:41trackI had a Nomad once and the Playcenter kept fucking up my PC
12:49:41zewith the zen i use a commandline util in linux
12:49:47zeit's nice i don't even have to mount or umount it
12:49:47trackso I took it back and got the Archos
12:49:55trackand ive been happy ever since Ive had it
12:50:39Galikwell i have to go out. cu later ppl
12:50:44trackHow long does the Archos take to boot up? 10 seconds?
12:51:06zei'm rather fond of my zen actually
12:51:25zethere's also some 3rd party crap for windows for transferring files to/from it
12:51:39trackwhen I had a Nomad if you fill the HD up, it takes 2 minutes to startup whilst it checks all the files!
12:51:40zethat's either a windows explorer-like interface or actualy makes windows explorer work for it, or there's both, i forget
12:51:55trackthereby draining a lot of power from the batteries
12:51:59zemy zen updates it's database as tracks are transferred
12:52:04trackand the battery life was shitty at 4 hours anyway
12:52:15zeand it's got nice 12+ hour battery life
12:52:24zeit boots up like instantly too
12:52:37trackmy Archos has a 14hour battery life with the 2000Mah batteries
12:52:38zewhen it shuts off it goes into like a sleep mode or something
12:52:45zeand comes right back up when you turn it on
12:52:53zeunless you leave it off for like a few days
12:53:13zethen it turns off further and takes a few seconds to boot next time
12:53:34zesound quality's great too
12:53:39trackI use Windows Media Player to make my playlists
12:53:44trackfar far easier than Musicmatch
12:53:51zehas some nifty little processing too that i never use
12:54:01zecan do timescaling and EQ and reverb and shit
12:54:16trackso what?
12:54:17zei build my playlists on the zen
12:54:21trackthe Archos can alter the playback speed
12:54:31zeit's really super easy, i love it's playlist building
12:54:44zeyou can sit there and throw on exactly what you want real quick
12:55:10zewant to listen to all of an artist? just click add to play over the artist
12:55:14trackyea but the Zen has non-removable non-standard battery
12:55:15zesame for an album or a genre
12:55:30trackwhen the battery dies you are fucked
12:55:45zenot necessarily
12:55:53zedepends on your warranty/service plan and such
12:56:02zeunless you mean just like when it's drained
12:56:12tracki mean when it no longer holds its charge
12:56:14zethen you just gotta recharge it, oh well
12:56:24 Quit Galik ("Client exiting")
12:56:32trackthe Archos uses batteries that are readily available
12:56:33zeah yeah, well lithium ion's are generally covered under warranty or service plans
12:56:49tracknot that I think the Zen looks like an old-fashioned Walkman
12:57:35zeheh well i never really look at it much, it's in my pocket most of the time
12:57:46zebut it's blue EL-backlit screen is nice
12:58:09zeand the jog wheel's cool
12:58:18zeor scroll wheel or whatever you wanna call it
12:58:37zeit's much quicker than any other way i've seen to scroll through lists
12:58:46zecause you can spin it real quick and jump way far through it
12:59:08trackwell i still think its a boring design
12:59:31zeand it's suprisingly usable with either single hand
13:00:13trackyea but the Archos is shock-proof with its blue corners
13:00:31zethat and rockbox are the only thing i miss about the archos
13:00:38tracki bet if you drop your Zen on a concrete floor it smashes to smithereens
13:00:50zethe whole case is aluminum
13:01:00zewell except for the joining part around the edge
13:01:00trackyea but it will still scratch
13:01:20zewhich appears to be some sortof hard rubberyish plastic
13:01:21trackthe blue Bumpers protect the Archos's metal chassis from hitting terra firma .....
13:01:58zei do wish it had bumpers, but oh well
13:02:17trackand the most important feature...........
13:02:32zei didn't have much of a choice in the matter, it was either the zen or drive to another store to get an fm rec
13:02:37zeand honestly the fm rec's suck, the zen's way better
13:02:52trackanyway im off nice chatting
13:02:54trackbe good
13:02:57zeexcept for a few of the nice recorder features, my old studio20 was better than the fm

15:29:37webminddsg, hows your recorder ?
15:29:44*webmind thinking he might just buy one :)
15:33:50webminddamn.. still expensive
15:40:53dsgwebmind: It's nice... but I've hit a small prob (not sure if it's rockbox or the recorder).
15:41:07webmindwhat thern?
15:41:11dsgIt's only happened twice, but still... it stops playing.
15:41:31dsgBut when I push buttons and such, the backlight goes on and such.
15:41:41dsgAnd I push pause, the play icon turns to a pause icon.
15:41:44webmindi've had the same problem though
15:41:48webmindi think it might be rock box
15:41:54dsgBut it looks like it's locked up, because the off and on buttons don't return to the browser.
15:41:59dsgwebmind: Could be.
15:42:02webmindbut i thaugt it was my batteries
15:42:47dsgwebmind: Well... I bought new batteries (2000mAh GP batteries) with the player, so...
15:43:00dsgAnd put them in. Originals haven't had a charge yet.
15:43:02webmindthen there shouldn't be a problem
15:43:28webmindbtw u there sunday or no ?
15:44:34dsgOr I think I should be here.
15:44:43dsgYou thinking of popping by?

15:46:23webmindpost order
15:46:28dsgHehe ;)
15:47:33dsgToo bad flashed rockbox not working properly on the recorder though.
15:48:57webmindits not ?
15:51:15dsgBig problems with charging.
15:51:39dsgIt measures the battery completely wrong, so it stops charging when it's far from full.
15:51:52dsgLike recently it was ~26% and it thought it was 100%, so it stopped charging
15:52:46dsgYeah. Really strange though... in all other ways it works beautifully (just over 2s bootup).
15:53:11webmindtoobad it doesnt really work for player..
15:53:34dsgYeah... did they have different flash chips or something?
15:55:58webminddont think so
15:56:06webmindbut too little people devving i think

20:43:21trackhey plugh
20:43:34trackI was argueing with Ze earlier on
20:44:05PlughI should scroll back, but I'm feeling too lazy right now
20:44:14trackhim saying his Zen is better than the Archos
20:44:40Plughhardware wise, I probably wouldn't argue with him
20:45:11PlughArchos makes pieces of cold-soldered junk with cheap batteries
20:45:30Hadakawhat's Zen? does it run rockbox?
20:45:50trackPlugh the Archos is NOT cold-soldered junk
20:46:06trackMy Recorder is over a year old and it is bomb-proof compared to the Nomad I used to have
20:46:17Hadakamy recorder is
20:46:30HadakaI've soldered some contacts back together a couple times now
20:46:32Plughtrack: I saw some of the solder joints inside my unit.
20:46:44trackyou prob have an early Player
20:46:51PlughI would have been ashamed to release anything of that level of quality
20:46:53Hadakatrack: I have the recorder 20
20:46:55PlughI have an FMR
20:47:12trackwell the FMR is a crap unit anyway
20:47:19trackim talking about the normal Recorders
20:47:22Plughso I've noticed
20:47:23trackArchos no longer make the FMR
20:47:35trackthe normal Recorders are bomb-proof
20:47:47Plughthey moved the recorder 20 into the same case with the same exploding battery
20:48:00 Join BoBB [0] (
20:48:16Plughdon't get me wrong. I haven't had any problems with mine
20:48:16trackmy battereis have never exploded
20:48:37Plughmy battery is swollen
20:48:54Plughit's a matter of time before it cracks the screen, and there's nothing I can do about it
20:48:59Plughbut wait for it to happen
20:49:30Hadakabutbut, what's the Zen?
20:49:38Plughuntil then, though, I'm more than happy with the performance
20:49:57Hadakaah, found it
20:50:17PlughI just feel like it's teetering on the verge of a hardware disaster
20:50:36trackthe FMR has no digital out, just digital in
20:50:53trackany why oh why did they put the headphone socket on the SIDE of the FMR and not the TOP
20:51:06Plughgot me
20:51:17Plughside has been fine
20:51:22Plughso far
20:51:50PlughI just turn it top down into the neoprene case and run the zippers around to the side
20:52:38Hadakaah, so zen is just nomad's try at the same thing - no bonus for me since no rockbox
20:55:06trackThere is a way you can make your Archos crossfade
20:56:20tracksimply connect it to the USB and the songs in Windows Media Player with the crossfading in Windows Media Player turned on
20:56:24Plughthere's only one decoder stream
20:56:56tracki mean connect the archos to the usb, and play all your songs in Windows Media Player with the crossfading in Windows MEdia Player turned on
20:57:24Plughoh. sure
20:58:20PlughI wouldn't want to do it in USB 1 mode though ;)
20:59:16trackim doing mine in USB1 mode now and it works great
21:00:07Plughyou can
21:00:10PlughI wouldn't want to
21:01:21Plughwoot. Realized I had a 20gig drive in an old broken-down Creative Nomad
21:01:38Plughmy laptop can be upgraded now from 4 to 20

22:10:49trackwhat you could do is dump your MP3s into compressed zip folders thereby saving HD space without losing quality as zip folders use lossless compression

22:13:54trackwell I put an MP3 that was 6,000kb into a zip folder and it compressed it to 5990kb

22:17:02Plughdo it enough times and you'll get it down to 1k
22:17:29trackhow about putting MP3s into cabinet files since cabinet files use LZW compression which is much more efficient than zip compression :-)

23:22:11Doggeralso is there any off the shelf line level converter? or do I *have* to build one
23:22:17[IDC]Dragonjust of curiosity, or why are you asking?

23:23:33DoggerI'd rather buy one if poss
23:23:40DoggerI have made one for my playstation before
23:23:46Doggerused to program it
23:24:30[IDC]DragonSo, can you use that?
23:24:40Doggeryeah prolly
23:25:02Doggerhow do I know the connections to make to the archos?
23:25:06[IDC]DragonDo you have to UART-boot?
23:25:08Doggerdoesnt seem to say in the mod
23:25:24Doggerok I'll come clean... I'm doing work on the AV
23:25:36Doggerso yeah I need to work out the serial
23:26:06[IDC]Dragonbut not my UART boot, tight?
23:26:34[IDC]Dragonthat's most likely very different.
23:27:44[IDC]DragonEverybody, different subject: is there a good ogg -> mp3 converter?
23:31:09Doggeryeah I know AV will be different, but they will prolly have used similar stuff
23:31:34Doggercant find out connections to archos for a start
23:32:23[IDC]DragonRS232 connections and UART boot are different things, you know?
23:33:11[IDC]Dragonthe UART boot is very specific to the JBR, with the 3 LCD lines pulled low.
23:33:29[IDC]DragonFor an AV, you won't have these lines...
23:34:43Doggerok, I cant find the UART boot info
23:34:49Doggerwhere is it on the site?
23:35:05Doggerhow did you find out about the lines? by REing the rom?
23:35:54[IDC]Dragon(but it won't help you!)
23:36:19Doggersure I know it won't
23:36:30Doggerso is the serial cable any use without that mod?
23:36:36Doggerdoes their OS send any info on it?
23:36:48Doggerany things you can send to do stuff?
23:37:02[IDC]Dragonyes, you can use gdb
23:37:18[IDC]Dragonor play with the Archos flash monitor.
23:37:20Doggerbut with the standard archos firmware I mean
23:38:41[IDC]DragonYou can try to hookup a serial to the AV, if you find out if and where this goes, and just listen.
23:39:01[IDC]DragonBut don't expect similarities to the JBR.
23:39:09[IDC]DragonIt's a different CPU.
23:39:48Doggerany ideas which cpu it is?
23:40:02DoggerI know the dsp/lcd chip/dram etc
23:40:04[IDC]DragonMaybe a TI OMAP.
23:40:49[IDC]DragonI'm shure it's TI.
23:40:49Doggerhmm ok, will have a look for that
23:40:55Doggerthe DSP is a TI
23:41:01Doggerhavent found the cpu yet
23:41:14[IDC]DragonA DSP is a CPU.
23:41:37Doggerwhat the DSP does everything?
23:41:41[IDC]DragonOMAP is an ARM core together with a TI DSP in a SOC.
23:41:47Doggero ok,
23:42:09Doggerwell in that case, its a TMS320 I believe
23:42:14Doggergot a photo of it somewhere

23:46:29Doggerhas another name as well
23:46:32[IDC]DragonThey make FPGAs, so any sort of custom stuff could be inthere.
23:46:44Dogger64 subsection things
23:46:53Doggerthere is another chip like it
23:47:02Doggerbut surely thats just reprogrammable if you want to
23:47:19Doggeras I understand it you program the chip tell it what you want it to do, then get it to do it?
23:47:48Doggerthe ISSI is 8Megabyte DRAM x2
23:47:52[IDC]DragonVery simplified, yes.
23:47:55Doggerso got 16meg ram to play with
23:48:18Doggerok but ur saying if they have programmed it with odd stuff we dont know about, it will be hard to use
23:48:27Doggerunless we reprogram it from scratch
23:49:20[IDC]DragonAre you in VHDL anf FPGA synthesis?
23:51:48Doggernope not yet
23:51:57DoggerI just wanna write some games for it for a start though
23:52:03Doggernot a complete replacement o/s

23:52:48[IDC]DragonThis box would indeed be a very cool platform, if Archos opens it.
23:53:10DoggerI'm working on that
23:55:15Doggereven without their help I will work it out
23:55:58[IDC]DragonHmm, if it's not buit from standard chips which are documented, I don't see that.
23:56:12Doggeryeah but the dsp is standard
23:56:19Doggerthe screen driver is standard
23:56:25Doggerthe usb2.0/ata is standard
23:56:38Doggerok, so some stuff may take longer
23:56:47Doggerbut you can do a lot with just those chips
23:56:55[IDC]DragonThe ISP has 64 macrocells. No FPGA, not big, but enought to give you a very hard time.
23:57:16[IDC]DragonHave you identified the CPU yet?
23:57:21Plughwell, turns out the hd in my old broken nomad was 6gig. Still an improvement over 4 in my laptop, and it's half the size and weight
23:57:44Doggerthe TI DSP chip?
23:58:08DoggerI have the full number written down somewhere
