#rockbox log for 2003-12-10

00:02:07top_blokewhat a scam
00:02:35PokerJokerhow could you change the LCD color?
00:02:47Zagor"I can provide details on how to get newer and better firmware loaded onto your Archos Jukebox."
00:02:49top_blokechange the LEDs
00:03:05top_blokeyeah "go get rockbox."
00:03:51top_blokethats the whole thing
00:07:35PokerJokerYep. What a fucknut.
00:07:59PokerJoker"I can provide information to upgrade your archos life by 100%"
00:08:08PokerJoker(buy new batteries)
00:08:14top_blokeit actually says that?
00:08:28PokerJokerNo, but it might as well. "go buy 2100 Mah batteries"
00:08:44PokerJokerIt doesnt say anything bout batteries. Im just knocking that guy.
00:08:48top_blokebut the part about the life 100%
00:08:58top_blokei get it
00:09:02top_blokei get jokes.
00:09:19PokerJokerI would like to have a red Led though. Thats cool. Orange.
00:09:44top_blokeyeah so do it
00:09:48PokerJokerI love this sentence he says. " How about livening it up a bit with different colour LEDs? You could try red, orange, blue or any other coloured LEDs you can find. Or be all funky and do a mixture of colours."
00:09:59top_blokeyeah go all out
00:10:12PokerJokerI mean, he isnt offering you LEDs. he isnt even telling you where to get them, or how to find them, or anything...
00:10:34PokerJoker"I have been at my wits end when the playlist takes ages to load and then only plays 999 songs. I can provide details on how to get newer and better firmware loaded onto your Archos Jukebox." now this guys a fucking asshole.
00:10:42top_blokeyeah its a scam
00:10:53top_blokebig time
00:11:40PokerJokerwe should all buy his "item" then leave Neg feedback.
00:12:01top_blokebut then he'd get $
00:12:39PokerJokernot if we didnt give him any. then i would get neg feedback too. but its worth it, to take one hit for the team
00:13:23[IDC]Dragonis there a doc of the gnu C asm() statement? I'm struggling with it.
00:14:07Zagori think i found something somewhere, but i don't remember where. i do remember searching quite a bit for it though :-(
00:14:35[IDC]Dragonencouraging :(
00:15:00[IDC]Dragonthe syntax is really crazy.
00:15:20[IDC]DragonIt's a lot easier to write a .s module for the code.
00:25:34 Quit trink ("Disconnecting")
00:25:36PokerJokeri better go. test. see you cats later.
00:26:16PokerJokeroh but furst. what is this guy saying about "get your archos sounding as it should." that crap?
00:26:26PokerJokerhe said the archos had inferior wiring or something
00:27:08Zagorthe 6000 model has a sort of weak headphone amplifier

00:27:55PokerJokerwhere could a person get an orange LED
00:28:28Zagorhi hardeep. how's your playlist viewer?
00:28:56top_blokesearch for LEDs
00:29:07top_blokeblue ones = pimp
00:29:42top_blokebut theyre more expensive
00:30:17PokerJokerblue is easier to read isnt it? where to get one?
00:30:36top_blokeradio shack?
00:30:44top_blokeor if u like online
00:32:24PokerJokeri didnt know they sold them like that.
00:32:48PokerJokeryou could easily mess up the LCD by putting in an LED behind it though, right? or am i stupid
00:32:59hardeepZagor: it works. =)
00:33:12top_blokenah i dont think
00:33:19top_blokeits just light
00:33:32top_blokeplaylist viewer = awesome
00:33:35Zagorhardeep: would you think it's fit for commit?
00:33:55top_blokeits a work of art
00:33:58hardeepZagor: yeah, I've only had one reported in the past few months
00:34:04hardeepZagor: er one bug
00:34:52top_blokei use it ALL the time and no bugs
00:34:53Zagorhow do you start it?
00:35:08hardeepMain Menu->Playlist Options->View Current Playlist
00:35:08top_blokeplaylist options
00:37:00top_blokeis it getting added to CVS?
00:37:13PokerJokercan you edit the M3U?
00:37:30top_blokenot right now
00:37:39top_blokewell can add to it
00:37:43top_blokeactually yeah
00:37:48top_blokeu can
00:38:16top_blokeu can do anything to it really
00:38:27Zagorhardeep: it looks good to me. feel free to commit.
00:38:44hardeepZagor: cool, i'll commit soon
00:39:24top_blokei'm so checking out the source tomorrow
00:39:45PokerJokerc ya all later
00:39:51 Quit PokerJoker ()
00:40:18top_blokei'm running like a month old source because i'm too lazy to patch the playlist viewer to every build
00:42:34top_blokewith the latest shuffle change, if you change shuffle and hit next track, will it change shuffle mode?
00:44:19hardeeptop_bloke: yeah, shuffle works exactly the same as before (if it doesn't then there's a bug). Only change was to avoid the disk access when shuffling
00:44:40top_blokeok thanks
00:44:45top_blokenice idea

01:04:14DarthWufeiHey, do you guys have a FAQ or something that tells you if you have V2?
01:04:36Zagoryes. or i could just tell you that we do :)
01:04:56DarthWufeiI thought so, where is it...?
01:05:15Zagoroh, now I understand what you wrote :-) you don't know if your recorder is a V2?
01:05:45Zagorwhat does it say above the screen?
01:06:10DarthWufeiArchos Jukebox Recorder 20
01:07:14Zagordoes it look like the left one in this picture?
01:08:09DarthWufeiIt's black
01:08:33Zagoryes, but the shape is the same?
01:08:52Zagorthen it's a regular recorder
01:08:59DarthWufeioh ok
01:09:05DarthWufeiI never knew the had released a second version
01:09:45Zagorit's quite new. it looks just like the fm recorder.
01:09:53DarthWufeioh I see
01:11:22DarthWufeiOkay hm
01:11:30DarthWufeiAre you familiar with CVS and the build program thing?
01:12:16DarthWufeiAlright well, how to I make sure that the build files are the same as those in the daily build?
01:12:30Zagorcvs update
01:13:06DarthWufeiI figured that much
01:13:15DarthWufeiI just got an error... let me try again
01:14:41DarthWufeiYeah, it says I need to specify the CVSRoot even after using the -dp option
01:15:04Zagorwhere are you running it? which dir?
01:15:55Zagorah, go back one dir. you want to run it in the dir where 'apps' and 'firmware' is
01:16:20DarthWufeiAh, I see
01:17:18DarthWufeiWeird, still get it there too
01:17:49hardeepDarthWufei: what's your command-line?
01:18:00DarthWufeicvs update -dp ?_?
01:18:05DarthWufeiignore the ?_?
01:18:37hardeepYou need to specify a CVS root, see the correct command line here:
01:19:07Zagoralso, you want to use the 'P' option, not 'p'. they are different :)
01:22:26DarthWufeiah there we go, thanks a lot

01:37:52DarthWufeiDo I not need to copy all the other files to it?
01:38:25top_blokeall the main code is in that file
01:38:50top_blokethe plugins and fonts and such are seperate
01:39:04DarthWufeiOh I see
01:39:51DarthWufeiIt's weird how that file didn't update though, yet I got other updates
01:40:41DarthWufeiWell Windows doesn't say it was updated today, but other files have been
01:43:47DarthWufeiI think i fixed it
01:43:51DarthWufeiDid a fresh update
01:44:42*DarthWufei doesn't get why the ajz file won't update
01:45:08top_blokedelete it
01:45:19top_blokeand it will make a new one
01:46:32top_blokei dont get it
01:52:09DarthWufeiThe hell
01:57:38hardeepDarthWufei: ?
01:58:10hardeepDarthWufei: CVS doesn't include the compiled binary, only the required source
01:58:40hardeepDarthWufei: If you want an up to date binary, you can download it from the daily builds page

02:38:45klaxoni'm having problems with a recorded file
02:39:49klaxonit plays fine on rockbox but not on windows (winamp, foobar2k)
02:40:56hardeepklaxon: It's probably a VBR header issue. See
02:41:28klaxoni did `update vbr file' on rockbox and now when fastforward, it skips far ahead
02:42:04DarthWufei[18:58:26] <hardeep> DarthWufei: If you want an up to date binary, you can download it from the daily builds page <- Oh alright, then.. hmm
02:42:20DarthWufeiHow I make the ajbrec file work with your playlist viewer?
02:42:23DarthWufeiHow do i*
02:42:45hardeepDarthWufei: I just committed the playlist viewer... grab a bleeding edge build and you'll have it
02:42:54DarthWufeiOh really?
02:42:57DarthWufeiThanks a lot
02:43:13klaxonbefore i did `update vbr header' on rockbox it seeked fine in rockbox
02:43:36hardeepDarthWufei: but, if you wanted to install a patch that isn't yet in the main source you would need to apply the patch to the source code and re-build it
02:44:04klaxonafter `update vbr header' , it plays further on windows, but not completely.
02:44:12hardeepklaxon: hmmm, that's bizarre... that normally fixes the ffw problem
02:44:36hardeepklaxon: try the windows vbrfix program mentioned in that mailing list link I sent you
02:44:39 Join scott666 [0] (
02:45:12hardeepklaxon: if that doesn't fix it then you should post a bug report and attach the mp3 file where the problem reproduces
02:46:16klaxonhardeep: it looks like vbrfix will take hours is that normal?
02:46:43hardeepklaxon: no, it should only take a few seconds, maybe a minute max for an extremely large file
02:47:25klaxonwell it logs _tons_ of errors about sample rate, channels, etc
02:47:45hardeepthat doesn't sound good... maybe the file is corrupt somehow
02:48:04klaxonyeah. recorded with new 2.1, plays fine on rockbox
02:48:50DarthWufeihardeep... so I should update via daily builds, then get the ajbrec and rocks that's in the bleeding edge?
02:50:26hardeepDarthWufei: you just need the bleeding edge binaries
02:50:31DarthWufeiOh ok

03:21:24klaxonor if i could emulate a rockbox on windows i could use that instead of winamp! :-p
03:25:12klaxoni'll try to define the bug tonite and post it
03:29:11klaxonthe file is about 160mb but the problems begin aroun 18 minutes, so i could truncate and supply the problem file.

18:03:02*edx 's new rockbox just arrived
18:04:53prellbockedx: which version?
18:05:04edxhm i meant archos
18:05:06edxrecorder 20
18:07:41edxis there a 2.1 flash version already?
18:13:39prellbockedx: recorder v1 or v2?
18:13:57edxwould v2 be better?
18:14:42earHertzv2 has the fmr form factor
18:14:47edxi saw that
18:14:52earHertzthis means small, but without replaceable abtteries
18:15:11*earHertz can't type
18:15:24edxwell i like the recorder, also had one before
18:15:40earHertzwhat happened to your old one?
18:15:52edxit was a victim of my own stupidity
18:16:01edxdidn't take it as hand baggage on the airport
18:16:21edxand the display was damaged during the flight
18:16:31edxi noticed too late and it wasn't insured :(
18:16:47earHertzhow'd you damage it in flight?
18:16:54edxit wasnt me
18:16:58edxit was in my rucksack
18:17:03edxand i gave it away
18:17:07earHertzYou still have it?
18:17:13edxsomething hard must have struck it or something
18:17:16edxit works
18:17:20edxexcept for the display
18:17:23prellbockv1 is better of course
18:17:24edxso it's an external hd right now
18:17:39earHertzLinus got a new display from newmp3rtechnology
18:18:15edxwell linus is a hardware freak
18:18:31earHertzand I think someone found out where archos-compatible displays are sold
18:18:52edxthe player was damaged somehow anyways.. it used to reboot if you didnt transport it carefully enough cuz i played too much with it
18:19:02earHertznew mp3 will repair for $99. Don't know if they charge extra for the display
18:20:03edxhmm sounds good but now its too late :p
18:20:22edxis it true that the recorder won't be sold for much longer time?
18:20:37earHertzDon't know. But I think it's likely
18:21:01earHertzArchos is selling a new version, with software upgrades for extra money
18:21:31edxthe current recorder flash image - what version of rockbox is it?
18:21:45earHertzDon't know.
18:22:05earHertzYou can read your own rom image if you want
18:22:16edxThe firmware in these files contain Rockbox v2.1
18:22:23edxok ;) that'll work
18:22:23earHertzI'm sure IDC dragon would tell you now to use that
18:22:52earHertzI'm not sure how you'd write your own version.
18:23:02earHertzThat's what ypou'll have to ask IDC Dragon. ;)
18:23:16edxit is documented
18:23:22edxbut im a lazy guy :>
18:23:25edx2.1 is perfect
18:24:19earHertzOh, I thought you meant the version of the ASrchos firmware stored as the first flash image
18:24:56edxhehe no
18:25:16edxah... one question - how can i activate the "hold" mode?
18:25:23edxit never worked for me before somehow
18:25:27earHertzI forget
18:25:48earHertzMy Archos is broken, has been for a while
18:27:00edxmy hardware is not flashable :<
18:27:22earHertzWrong chip?

22:13:36earHertzam I too late for the anti-MS flamewar?
22:13:57scott666whos on the M$ side?
22:15:09earHertzI am! If I had a wife, I'd want her to be Microsoft-made.
22:17:04earHertzI just spent another $110 bucks on my archos. So that's 270 + 170 + 110 = %550 I've spent on this sucker so far.
22:18:23earHertzI could have a 40GB iPod for that
22:18:39earHertzAnd have $60 left over
22:23:05Zagorwhat did you spend it on?
22:27:08earHertzI sent it to NewMP3tech for repair
22:27:37earHertzI'd compressed it (had it in my jeans pocket for a while) and it got to the point where I can't easily get it to power-up.,
22:27:54earHertzBut could easily get it to "freeze".
22:28:10earHertzThe $170 ewas for a 60GB drive
22:28:30earHertzTrue, i have a spare 20GB laptop p hard drive from the deal.
22:31:43Zagorbtw, do we have any of the Ample code left in id3.c or mp3data.c?
22:33:24earHertzWhat's the ample code?
22:33:51earHertzAnd why is it an issue?
22:36:04ZagorIn our id3.c and mp3data.c, we have a comment: "Parts of this code has been stolen from the Ample project and was written by David Härdeman." i look at the ample code and couldn't recognize anything from our code.
22:36:54earHertzI restructed the way the id3.c code grabbed the individual tags, by making it data-driven.
22:37:12earHertzI never touched mp3data.c
22:38:25Zagorah, right. i mistakenly got the idea that the comments were connected.
22:39:46earHertzZagor, btw, I'm not seeing my posts showing up on the mailing list
22:40:09Zagorno? i got your last cost of ownership post
22:40:29earHertzDid you?
22:40:41earHertzThen why didn't I?
22:40:51earHertzOh, just got it.
22:41:11earHertzI may have posted the one I'm missing from last night using the wrong account.
22:41:28Zagoryeah, that's possible
22:42:13earHertzIs this related to the Open Neo business?

22:43:28Zagoryeah, sort of. not in a serious way, i just noticed this comment
22:43:54 Quit methangas (" HydraIRC rocks! -> <-")
22:44:20earHertzYeah, It turnsd out that my copyright notice in id3.c IS in the Open Neo source. Otherwuse, I's have sent them a C&D.
22:45:13Zagorthat business is being solved now, though. they are restoring all our headers.
22:45:52earHertzGood enough.
22:46:16earHertzI suppose it's a back-handed compliment. ;)
22:46:33Zagoryeah, sort of.
22:47:21earHertzHow's your Archos holding up?
22:47:42Zagorvery well. i haven't had any problems at all with it.
22:48:20earHertzToo bad. ;)
22:48:37_aLFI have a sugestion about place of "create playlist" menu entry
22:48:43_aLFwhy not put it in on+play menu, because it depends of the current directory
22:48:57earHertzI was hoping for a misfourtune that would drive you to start reverse engineering another MP3 player. ;)
22:48:59_aLF(more intuitive for me)
22:49:02Zagoralf: yeah, but on+play depends on the file/dir you currently have selected
22:49:13ZagorearHertz: such as the neo? ;)
22:49:26earHertzWell, perhaps the Karma
22:49:51Zagorhave you tried it?
22:49:54_aLFZagor> but create playlist doesn't depends of currenlty select dir ?
22:49:58 Quit cjnr11 ()
22:50:00earHertzAlthough I understand that the newer rio models are not as easy to reverse engineer as the earlier ones.
22:50:06earHertzI have not tried it.
22:50:08Zagor_aLF: no, it uses your current dir
22:50:29Zagor_aLF: otherwise you couldn't make a whole-disk playlist
22:50:34earHertzThe HP product also looks good.
22:50:57Zagorwhich is that?
22:51:21earHertzUm. hanng on a bit
22:51:38_aLFZagor> ok
22:52:14Zagorbut we could still use a talented interface designer :-)
22:53:08earHertzBasically, records and plays WAVs too, and plays Vorbis
22:53:20 Quit Dogger ("Client Exiting")
22:53:57earHertzIf it plays WAVS, I assume that FLACs and Monkeys would be trivial.
22:55:13Zagoroh, the iRiver. yeah, nice hardware. lousy interface though :(
22:55:42Zagori played with it the other day and that navigation knob made me want to throw the thing at the wall
22:55:44earHertzWell, precisely why you're needed
22:56:11earHertzThe archos is nice hardware and poor software (and incoinsistant quality control)
22:56:25Zagoryeah, but the physical interface is horrible too. buttons on three sides and that horrible knob to boot.
22:57:36earHertzHmm. I wouldn't mind side buttons at all. I can't distinguish the Archos buttons by touch alone. Side buttons I could.
22:58:01Zagorit could have been a great little machine. i think it uses a nicely documented motorola chip and a gorgeous hires display on the remote
22:58:48earHertzGiven that the chip is documented, how much work would it take for you to get to the ppint of poroof-of-concept code?
22:59:26Zagorhard to tell. it depends a lot on the other hardware too, and if they're playing silly scrambling tricks like archos do.
23:00:44earHertzArchos's stupidity never fails to amaze me. Even if they wouldn't give you any clues, they should at least just USE rockbox
23:02:27Zagori've stopped caring :)
23:06:42earHertzI haven't. It's why I won't buy any more archos products. Making shoddy software and not supporting voluneteers who make a replacement orders of magnitude better is an isult to their customers. So I will no longer be insulted, or a customer.
23:09:34earHertzAgain, if nothing else, they should put Rockbox on their products. Instead, they are moving to a business plan of intentionally crippling their software, in order to extort further payments from users for unlock codes.
23:14:17Zagoryeah, i'd like to move away from archos too. i want new toys! :)

23:18:54[IDC]DragonHi guys!
23:24:36webmindi've found a bug btw
23:24:42earHertzKeep us up-to-date on what MP3 toys you're looking at; if I think you'll reverse engineer it, I'll be more inclined to buy it.
23:24:43webmindshuffle doesnt always work
23:25:12hardeepwebmind: more info please
23:26:03webmindhardeep, when i after a starting up my archos want to play my playlist
23:26:22webmindit seems to not shuffle it first
23:28:24hardeepwebmind: so, you have shuffle mode enabled and you play a playlist
23:28:24hardeepand the playlist isn't shuffled?
23:28:25hardeepwas that a yes or no?
23:28:37hardeepwhat version are you using?
23:28:56webminda daily build of a few weeks ago
23:29:40hardeephmmmm, i don't recall any shuffle bug being fixed recently and it works fine for me
23:30:37Zagorit shuffles for me too
23:30:38webmindit usually works
23:30:38webmindjust wen strat my playlist right after boot
23:31:07webmindi also have it sometimes that it doesnt ask for resume
23:31:50Zagoryou should update your version. that was fixed weeks ago.
23:32:45webmindah ok
23:32:45webmindwhat was it ?
23:32:45Zagorthe resume thing was that your ON press sometimes aborted the resume question
23:32:45webmindbtw i'm still no fan of this absolute agressive resume
23:32:45DBUGEnqueued KICK webmind
23:32:45Zagor? put it on ask
23:33:03Zagoroh, you mean resuming after you press STOP
23:33:47webminddon't like that
23:34:21Zagori love it, so it's not going away ;)
23:34:30***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
23:34:42webmindZagor, more people love it.. but it doenst make sense
23:34:50hardeepthat feature is super useful when you're ROLO'ing between different versions to track a resume issue
23:34:53webmindi'd just vote for an enable/disable option
23:35:11webmindhardeep, you dont need resume for that
23:35:16Zagoryeah, i guess i could live with that
23:36:10hardeepwebmind: when you're debugging a resume issue you do
23:36:14webmindanyway. going to bed... gnite
23:36:24webmindhardeep, hm
23:48:33earHertzWhat's the approx. current size of the the .ajz?
23:49:18Zagor160 KB i think
23:49:35earHertzWow. Not bad.
23:49:57earHertzI never did submit a cleanup for the settings code
