00:02:39midknight2k3i like the sour citrus ones!
00:02:46midknight2k3they are good
00:02:51diddystar5what ever happened to blueloop?
00:03:07scott666sontaneously combusted, it was a shame
00:03:13diddystar5lol mid wrong chat
00:03:41scott666what code did bluechip steal?
00:04:03midknight2k3the CHIP8 CODE!
00:04:10scott666tahtwas blueloop
00:04:13midknight2k3i've busted the crime, captain!
00:04:17midknight2k3oh wait
00:04:18midknight2k3it was?
00:04:23Bluechipindeed it was
00:04:25midknight2k3no way
00:04:36Bluechipgo check it - i just got it working with a recent build
00:04:43scott666someone should make that a plug-in
00:04:50midknight2k3let me look
00:05:01midknight2k3oops i was wrong
00:05:05Bluechipthat makes sense of what you were saying the other night - lol
00:05:11midknight2k3i mean, i knew it was blueloop all along!
00:05:24scott666better yet, make .ch8 a registered type that goes right to the .rock, like text files
00:05:34Bluechipit always did
00:05:45Bluechipthe standard chip8 patch did just that
00:05:58scott666yeah but would it if it were a rock?
00:06:04midknight2k3scott: DUH
00:06:32diddystar5i tried porting the ch8 thing to a plugin and it didnt work i should try again since i have gotton better at programming
00:07:04Bluechipwell if you get stuck just ask
00:07:04scott666well things like the type registration would have to be separate

00:12:06slakwherehey guys. i just unzipped the 2.0 firmware for the jukebox into the root of my archos, but i still have the old archos firmware.
00:12:09slakwhereis there something im missing?
00:12:26midknight2k3did you get the right version? what model is it?

00:14:45midknight2k3try getting a daily build player.mod
00:14:47slakwherejukebox 6000
00:14:59scott666its not a recorder, right?
00:15:07slakwherenot a recorder
00:15:15midknight2k3jukebox 6000 means jukebox 6gb scott
00:15:35scott666theres a 6k recorder too
00:15:40midknight2k3not really
00:15:43scott666i just wanted to be sure
00:15:48midknight2k3jukebox means jukebox not recorder
00:16:04scott666yeah but hes new here
00:16:18scott666i could call my FMR a player, cause it IS a player, but that would confuse people

00:18:53midknight2k3and so on
00:19:05midknight2k3but the worst part was it didnt tell me it was doing it
00:19:18midknight2k3people in #c started going around doing !quit and stuff
00:19:23midknight2k3i was like what?!
00:20:33scott666thats funnt
00:20:49midknight2k3that was stupid
00:20:53scott666itd be funnier if it it actually switched your mouse buttons
00:20:54midknight2k3how did it know i cracked it!?!
00:21:12midknight2k3oh wait
00:21:16midknight2k3maybe it was my firewall
00:21:29midknight2k3it just happened last night, when my firewall was off for the first time in eons
00:21:40scott666but you gave klient permission to use hte internet
00:21:42midknight2k3perhaps in general it keeps it from sending messages
00:21:47slakwhereso does shuffle recurse dir's these days?
00:22:28scott666i assume

00:23:00scott666thats not what he asked
00:23:06midknight2k3shut up
00:23:14scott666that just has the word 'recursively' in ity
00:23:32midknight2k3shut up!
00:23:36midknight2k3it does something~
00:23:57scott666do you even know what 'recursively' means??
00:24:08midknight2k3sort of
00:24:18midknight2k3recursively.. it sorta... recurses!
00:24:58scott666thats a 'no'
00:25:01diddystar5LinusN|brb: you there?
00:25:13midknight2k3its a yes
00:25:16midknight2k3it recurses
00:25:23midknight2k3recurse means to.. recurse
00:25:36slakwhereanyone here built a remote for the jukebox 6k?
00:25:50scott666ok so a 'yes' for recursively, a 'no' for recurse

00:36:30 Part diddystar5_
00:36:56Gazelcos' there is something unclear in my mind :
00:37:09Gazeli have it open here, plugged
00:37:27midknight2k3plugged in
00:37:30midknight2k3AC adaprte
00:37:37Gazelexact, thx :)
00:37:49GazelAC-plugged, we'll say ;)
00:37:59scott666seems like a bad idea, but go on
00:38:31Gazelwhen i remove the littl top part (which make connection between battery and metal back)
00:38:50Gazelthe charging screen appears
00:39:11scott666taking off the top can reboot the archos
00:39:42Gazelyes... but the charging screen only appears from time to time
00:39:47scott666the battery gets disconected and reconnected
00:40:02scott666sometimes the battery doesn't get reconnected
00:40:07Gazeland when i put it back, only leds blink
00:40:17Gazelok, i understand more
00:40:42scott666but i dont think you're supposed to have it open and plugged in
00:40:51scott666would you work on your computer while it was on?
00:41:44Gazelyeah, but since i can't get the HD spin up, i try to see what's going on
00:41:53scott666anyway, the top doesn't do anything with the battery but keep it down
00:42:07diddystar5Gazel the charger cant supply enough power to spin the HD
00:42:13midknight2k3yes it can
00:42:32diddystar5not on my or most peoples units
00:42:55Gazelyep : but the charging screen is the only screen i can get, and i get it only when charger is connected
00:43:20CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
00:43:20*diddystar5 dosent like laptop's that well
00:43:21scott666what happens when you're on the charging screen and then press 'on'?
00:43:28midknight2k3IT SHUTS UP
00:43:50Gazelno, nothing happens
00:43:59Gazelthe charging screen stays here
00:44:55Gazelto be exact : the charging screen starts only when i press the top part on the batteries and release it ( = connect - disconnect)
00:45:23Gazelthen it disappears a few seconds later
00:45:33scott666very odd
00:46:22Gazelyes indeed... i wish i could know if it is the ata controller that is wrong, or the battery, or something else..
00:46:25midknight2k3scott: it didnt shut up?
00:47:09diddystar5gotta go
00:47:12midknight2k3bye diddystar
00:47:27scott666you don't have another laptop HD to try, do you?
00:47:29 Quit diddystar5 ()
00:48:14Gazelno... but the hd works on my pc
00:48:45scott666oh, well that rules that out
00:49:05Gazelyes, that's why i came back here today :o)
00:50:09scott666whats the voltage say when you're on the charging screen?
00:51:08Gazel4.75 or more when the HD is connected
00:51:21midknight2k3thats a lot
00:51:24midknight2k3thats a LOT!
00:51:28midknight2k3not good
00:51:36Gazeland about 2volts when i only put the battery
00:51:37midknight2k3its usually about 4v
00:51:43scott666you're not supposed to get over 4.2
00:51:49midknight2k3top is 4.25ish
00:51:57scott666ive seen 4.21
00:51:58midknight2k34.75 is.. wow
00:52:03midknight2k3ive seen 4.25
00:52:06midknight2k3on mine
00:52:11midknight2k34.26 maybe
00:54:20Gazeli checked again : it varies from 4.33 to 4.78... with a whistling noise as it was doing at the end of a charge
00:54:36midknight2k3thats not good at all
00:54:55scott666that sounds bad
00:55:18midknight2k3and whistling?
00:55:18Gazelbut when i remove the drive => 2volts, no noise, and the charging screen is there even with the top connected
00:55:24midknight2k3the battery must be boiling
00:55:29scott666and nothing happens when you press on when its not plugged in?
00:55:47midknight2k3alert! gazel's battery is boiling
00:55:50midknight2k3stand back people
00:56:02scott666if it were it wouldve blew up
00:56:11scott666*blown up
00:56:11midknight2k3liion batts do blow up
00:56:12Gazeljust the left green led is blinking once
00:56:17midknight2k3stay back gazel
00:57:19Gazelwhstle, more like a steam noise... hard to tell :-p
00:57:41midknight2k3ddi you see the picture of the guy's batter that popped?
00:57:50midknight2k3it like blew up in the jukebox
00:58:03midknight2k3the screen shattered and the plastic cracked

01:01:19scott666of yeah
01:01:31scott666my headphone jack is fucked up
01:01:44Gazelwhat should the charging screen tell when nothing is connected (no drive, no battery) ? mine is saying 100% , 4.25v
01:01:51scott666i have to like press it down to get it to work in both channels

01:05:16midknight2k3sounds even wronger

02:09:15Bluechipnot that hard when you've seen it done once
02:09:33Bluechipbut thanks for the compliment
02:09:41midknight2k3i need help with it
02:10:02Bluechipwhats the problem?
02:10:24midknight2k3it just wont work

02:10:50midknight2k3thats about the 50th time its happeend
02:10:57Bluechipyes, reduce the colour depth of the BMP
02:11:10midknight2k3how? i tried photoshop, paint and fireworks
02:11:13Bluechipyoucan only use MONO files on a jukebox screen
02:11:48Bluechippaint: save as : mono
02:13:18midknight2k3leme se
02:13:54midknight2k3save as monochrome bitmap?
02:15:36Bluechipsounds good
02:15:48midknight2k3or maybe it has to do with the bitmap size?
02:15:53midknight2k3like 100x100?
02:16:17Bluechip112x65 iirc
02:16:46midknight2k3if its bigger than bmp2rb will complain and say its got a big bit depth?

04:24:11Bluechipi knew a guy once who used to get up every morning and shout....

04:25:32midknight2k3or we can arrance i nice far rhamporyncus "you suck"
04:25:48Bluechipi wouldn't want to be identified as a coward
04:26:01Bluechiplong distance insults only work on the weak minded
04:26:04midknight2k3thats not cowardly
04:26:10midknight2k3hes weak minded
04:26:12midknight2k3please do it
04:27:13midknight2k3bluechip are you gonna
04:27:18Bluechipi'd rather browse porn thanks
04:27:34midknight2k3you are afraid of RHAMPHORYNCUS
04:28:37midknight2k3whats funny
04:28:44midknight2k3cmon ask him to unignore me
04:28:47Bluechipyour attempt at a long distance insult
04:28:58midknight2k3im just saying
04:30:27Bluechipi hear you
04:30:31midknight2k3cant you
04:30:44*midknight2k3 weeps
04:31:38*Bluechip passes MK a tissue
04:31:53Bluechip...and you know where THAT's been - LOL
04:32:05*midknight2k3 throws the tissue into Bluechips' face cause it to tap his eyelash and fall to the ground
04:32:26Bluechipdamn didn't duck quick enough
04:32:38*midknight2k3 needs Bluechip to ask Rhamphoryncus to unignore me please
04:33:03BluechipI am sure he will do that when the right time comes
04:33:07midknight2k3he wont
04:33:10midknight2k3hes a real fucking jerk
04:33:17Bluechipahh, now we see why
04:33:23midknight2k3yes you do
04:33:33midknight2k3when i get -q i will file a complaint
04:33:40Bluechipbored with your long distance insults?
04:34:17Bluechiplaters dudes
04:34:24midknight2k3good bye mr cant help me
04:34:40Bluechipif you have a techie issue I will stay?
04:34:52midknight2k3just a rhampornus issue
04:35:14midknight2k3oh wait
04:35:18midknight2k3you here?
04:35:21midknight2k3perhaps you can help
04:35:47midknight2k3do you know a way to make some text come after other text without trial and error testing pixels?
04:36:24Bluechipnot sure what you mean - the print statement does a pretty good job
04:36:25midknight2k3instead of lcd_putsxy(blabla) and then lcd putsxy(blabla) where the 2nd you need to test to see if it will come right after the text
04:36:29midknight2k3well yeah
04:36:37midknight2k3its just that you specify pixels
04:36:48midknight2k3can you make it tell where it should go after the text automatically?
04:37:02midknight2k3so you dont try 53, then try 55, then try 58, to get it just right?
04:37:07Bluechipyou need to add (fw*strlen(s1))
04:37:13Bluechipto your original value
04:37:19Bluechip where fw is the width of the current font
04:37:27Bluechipand s1 is the first string
04:37:39Bluechipsysfixed is 6 as I recall
04:37:50Bluechipit is more tricky with prop spacing
04:38:34Bluechipi did my own font at 5 iirc
04:39:49Bluechipwork okay?
04:40:01midknight2k3ill try it
04:40:03Bluechipdo we have a strlen function?
04:40:09Bluechipif not i will write one
04:40:14midknight2k3i hope so
04:40:32midknight2k3 lcd_putsxy(0, 0, str(LANG_F3_SCROLL));
04:40:32midknight2k3 lcd_putsxy(0, 5, str(LANG_F3_BAR));
04:40:36midknight2k3thats what im modifying
04:40:45midknight2k35 makes BAR overlap SCROLL
04:40:57midknight2k3i just need something that tells bar to come after scroll
04:41:09midknight2k3without trial and error
04:43:14Bluechipint strlen(void* p)
04:43:15Bluechip void* t;
04:43:15Bluechip for (t=p; *t; t++);
04:43:15Bluechip return(t-p);
04:43:15***Alert Mode level 1
04:43:30BluechipSHOULD work okay
04:43:38midknight2k3where does that go
04:43:41midknight2k3and how
04:44:08Bluechipjust slap it in the code you are wokring on near the top
04:44:19midknight2k3there must be more to it than that
04:44:32midknight2k3what about the putsxy
04:44:37midknight2k3it wants coordinates
04:44:51midknight2k3i could have got this done if i werent such a time waster lol
04:44:58midknight2k3use that for coords?
04:45:06Bluechipas explained above
04:45:16midknight2k3let me try
04:46:58midknight2k3so s1 being the firs string
04:47:13midknight2k3like LANG_F3_SCROLL?
04:47:32midknight2k3and the (fw*strlen(s1)) goes on LANG_F3_BAR ?
04:48:35midknight2k3 {
04:48:35DBUGEnqueued KICK midknight2k3

19:49:14TrackIm looking to replace my Archos
19:50:13Trackjust had enough of it
19:50:24Bluechipsad to see you go
19:50:27TrackI want to get the new highly desirable Nomad Zen Xtra
19:50:45Bluechipahhh status symbols
19:50:53Cuivienorheya people! Today I replaced the firmware of my FM recorder with your own Firmware and it rock(box)s! What's more it's Free Software ;-) But I wanted to know? How did you hack it? Is there a way to hack their newly released AV 300 series?
19:51:03Bluechipyes, creative do have a BIG advertising budget
19:51:21Trackthe Zen Xtra has a massive 2inch screen, 60gb drive, drag-and-drop via windows explorer, has timestretching, DSP modes, graphic Eq, sorts by genre, albums etc
19:51:28Trackand a full metal chassis
19:51:33Bluechipav3000 is unhacked as yet - see
19:52:13webmindCuivienor, simple technology.. relativly easy to reverse engineer
19:52:20Trackif I get the Nomad ill just keep the Archos as a HD
19:52:42Cuivienorwebmind: so I suppose it will be harder with less simple technology such as AV300?
19:53:05webmindunless there are specs available
19:54:01CuivienorWith friends we're sending one mail a day to different archos representatives so that they put their firmware, or at least the APIs under the GPL... No answer yet, and no answer to come, I would guess....

19:54:14quelsarukgood night!
19:54:29webmindoi quelsaruk
19:54:30quelsarukit's been a long time since my last visit
19:54:47Bluechipif archos release their code we can go back to basics ans start all over again :)
19:55:02webmindwhy ?
19:55:06Bluechip...or were you referring to the av3000?
19:55:17CuivienorI was refering to the AV300 ;-)
19:55:24Bluechipahh, that makes more sense
19:55:35Cuivienorit sure does
19:55:40webmindis it av300 or av3000 ?
19:55:57Bluechipi always get confused in this group - rockbox seems to be the "subject" so rarely
19:56:05Bluechip3000 i thought
19:56:09quelsarukwill archos ever release their code??
19:56:13CuivienorIt's 300
19:56:13quelsaruki don't think so
19:56:26webminddoubt it.. would be to emberrasing
19:56:30Cuivienorquelsaruk: no they want to keep their technological secrets
19:56:42Trackim not sure if i would buy a Gmini though
19:56:44webmindCuivienor, lol
19:56:52webmindgmini ?
19:56:58Cuivienorthe new MP3 player
19:57:04webmindTrack, your spoiled
19:57:28Cuivienorlooks very much like an Ipod to me... though I don't know if it's as small
19:57:51TrackI like the new Nomad Zen Xtra
19:57:59Trackit wipes the floor with the Ipod
19:58:34TrackIve heard that the Ipod is loosing its way now
19:58:37webmindi'd prefer the original nomad
19:58:39webmindfrom sega
19:58:42Bluechipno dude, it's an mp3 player not a the latest in mop technology
19:58:45Trackshorter battery life, poor touchsensitive buttons
19:58:46Cuivienorhey, they've managed to show Linux instead of Archos on the new AV300 series! hmmm, they should have put GNU/Linux ;-)
19:58:55Tracki know that bluechip you nerd!
19:59:12Bluechipso why do you want to wash the floor with it?
19:59:21Trackits a figure of speech you twat
19:59:21Bluechipsurely that'll short out the batteries?
19:59:42webmindBluechip, not if ya use quick 'n brite
19:59:45Bluechipdid you know that a "twat" is a part of a nuns habit?
19:59:53Bluechipno idea which bit though
20:00:11TrackIm not sure about the Gmini's horizontal interface
20:00:21CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
20:00:21*quelsaruk searching for developers awake
20:00:38CuivienorTrack: which Gmini: the sueful one with BnW screen, or the gadget one with color screen?
20:00:41*Bluechip yawns a little, but is at least still typing
20:00:50Trackthe new one where you buy the plugins
20:00:59webmindquelsaruk, good luck finding m
20:00:59quelsarukat least, developers with access to sourcecode
20:01:09quelsaruki hoped LinusN was awake
20:01:13Bluechipthe source is open - we all have access
20:01:20Trackbut if I get a Nomad im keeping the Archos as a HD
20:01:45quelsarukok, i'll try to explain.. access for updating the code in sourceforge ;)
20:02:05Trackis there a mikeholden here?
20:02:07Bluechipahhh, yes this is where my knowledge falls down severly
20:02:18Cuivienormmh, Nomad Jukeboxes have a slightly better decompression algorithm. The sound of 128kbits MP3s is a little with it. Though nothing noticeable without high-quality earphones...
20:02:34Cuivienor*little better
20:02:57TrackThe Nomads use software decompressors
20:03:12Tracksince the chip that stores the software can be reprogrammed
20:03:28Cuivienori see... but, rah, I have to go for now...
20:04:05Trackso if they wanted to include atrac3 on the Nomad they simply download a new piece of software to the chip

20:38:28Cuivienormmh, 2.6 Test9 kernel released
20:38:40webmindme waiting for stable
20:39:42Tracku could say the same thing about linus operating system such as red hat
20:39:51Trackmade by spotty geeks for spotty geeks
20:39:58CuivienorWell, this comp is my playground, I think I have no single piece of software that could be considered as stable there...
20:40:42Cuivienor(and by Debian standards, I think it would crash every second)
20:41:15CuivienorWhen I last tried RedHat (twas 8.0) I rather liked it after I had set atp up...
20:41:32PlughLonghorn appears to be made with DRM at the center of its operation
20:42:04Trackis the linus series made with DRM
20:42:17Plughthey're stripping out the filesystem and replacing it with a database, with full controls over how data is moved around
20:42:33Tracksuch as red hat linus or lycoris?
20:43:10Cuivienorlycoris?! Arg, this windows-like pseudo-Linux?
20:43:11Plughyour computer's database will connect to other computers' databases using a type of .NET call
20:43:24Trackyea thats the one
20:43:31TrackI have Red Hat Linus somewhere on DVD

21:43:25Cuivienoroh? What's new in it? Is it the Gmini?
21:43:28webmindquelsaruk was lookin for ya
21:43:40[IDC]DragonHi Linus, I must have "overlooked" you.
21:43:45LinusNwith the same package as the discontinued FM recorder
21:44:14LinusNwith liion battery and stuff
21:44:15[IDC]DragonI called the different booting box a "V2", but I like to bury that term.
21:45:16Bluechipahh, the old v1.1 ??? lol
21:45:25[IDC]DragonIn fact it has no boot ROM. (at least not enabled)
21:45:28LinusNthe new recorder version 2 did not load rockbox
21:45:58LinusNhowever, it uses the same scrambling algorithm as the fm recorder
21:46:31LinusNi found out how to scramble it so the v2 loader accepted the ajbrec.ajz
21:46:44Bluechipyou really are THE man, man :)
21:46:46LinusNi used the fm recorder version of rockbox
21:46:52webmindLinusN, scarmbling ?
21:46:55LinusNand guess what?
21:47:10LinusNit loaded rockbox and it works perfectly!
21:47:12[IDC]DragonDid Archos release an update firmware, or how did you find out?
21:47:18LinusNand a BONUS!!!
21:47:24webmindbonus ?
21:47:29webmindit has fm ?
21:47:35LinusNthe FM radio is still there!
21:48:01Bluechipso the v2 is an fm?
21:48:05[IDC]DragonSo what's the difference to an FM?
21:48:06LinusNi guess they are repackaging old fm recorders as V2 recorders
21:48:15LinusNuntil they run out of stock
21:48:25LinusNthen they will manufacture them without fm chips
21:48:29webmindLinusN, they selling the fm recorders aswell ?

23:30:14[IDC]DragonGuess I have to domore thorough documentation about the UART boot now...
23:31:00Plughone of these days I'm going to get around to retagging everything on my home computer, which mirrors my archos
23:31:26PlughI really need to get an 80gig drive in mine though. 20gig fills up so quickly
23:31:52Kamayaka228EUR :\ for 80gb
23:32:04Plughlast week I put 1.5 gig of music recorded at a campout we did this summer
23:32:23PlughI had to clean out the previous campout worth to fit it
23:32:38Plughthat one was 2.5gig
23:33:14Kamayakadoes the mailer deamon reply to my mail sent to the mailing list in any way ?
23:33:33LinusNno, why?
23:33:44Kamayakano idea, just wondering :)
23:33:50Kamayakadid you get the mail ?
23:34:09LinusNnot yet
23:34:36elinenberead this:
23:34:45elinenbeDell is publishing some bogus battery numbers! They claim that the battery will last 16 hours of continous play. Well, I decided to see if that number would hold true. It did not ! I took the DJ, loaded it up half full of MP3s, charged the battery overnight. Then at 11pm I cued up 1000 songs to play continously with the repeat function. I set the display contrast to 50% and set the volume at 50% (1
23:34:45elinenbe3 out of 25).
23:34:57elinenbeI plugged in headphones and headed for bed. I woke up the next morning, it was still playing. Great. I estimated that it would cut off at 2-3PM. Starting at about noon (12PM), I started keeping a closer eye on the unit. 3PM past by... 4PM past by... 7PM past by... It was still running and sounded as good as when it started. Dell lied
23:35:09elinenbeThis thing has been running for 20 hours already. I want my money back. Wait... That is a good thing. Well at 9:37PM the darn thing finally popped up a message that said, “Shutting Down”, followed by a pretty little pixel graphic that says Low Battery. 22 hours and 37 minutes. Not bad!
23:37:14Kamayakano idea how long my rockbox last...
23:37:22Plughthat's impressive
23:37:56Kamayakathe problem ist that i have the 8mb mod but the rockbox itself is not able to estimate the amount of memory installed :\
23:38:25Plughone thing I really love is that my archos hasn't been plugged into wall power at all in over a month
23:38:32Plughit's been charging off USB
23:38:41Plughand I use it every day
23:39:20Plughbetween 1 and 8 hours a day
23:40:19 Quit track ("Leaving")
23:40:38PlughDragon: does that anecdotal evidence jibe with anything you've heard? I keep reading about people who plug in their archos to USB overnight and come back to a unit that can't even be charged
23:41:32[IDC]DragonNot shure about those.
23:41:40elinenbePlugh: what Archos device do you have?
23:42:08Plughno mods, but flashed with last week's cvs
23:42:22LinusNfmr can charge from usb, normal recorders cannot
23:42:36Plughah, thanks for clearing that up Linus
23:42:46elinenbeLinusN: do you use your recorder, or your recorder FM more often?
23:45:45LinusNi use my recorder
23:45:56LinusNold habit
23:46:23LinusNi have used the fm for evil experiments
23:52:06 Part Bluechip
23:52:07Plughand it still works>
23:52:14LinusNoh sure
23:52:23LinusNit was filesystem experiments
23:52:27Plughevery time I do evil experiments my functionality decreases by 10%
23:52:34LinusNfor tracking down fat bugs
23:52:47Plughso I get 10 experiments before I have a non-working device
23:53:01Plughmmm fat bugs. I like the juicy ones
23:53:19*Plugh is a Software QA engineer
23:53:40*LinusN is a lazy lower case typist
23:55:25*Kamayaka is nothing
