00:16:32midknight2k3i like plugins
00:16:34trackahh im with you
00:16:35midknight2k3any suggests?
00:17:11trackHow about write basic .txt files?
00:17:19trackif u wanted to note down an address or memo?
00:17:26midknight2k3there's a calendar for that
00:17:31elinenbe[IDC]Dragon: 64.34 after a long while and my recorder is about as hot as it gets...
00:17:37midknight2k3but i could make a standalone
00:17:42trackyea thats what I mean
00:17:43elinenbeso, it dropped from 67 to 63
00:17:48[IDC]Dragonelinenbe: OK
00:18:03[IDC]Dragonaverage 65
00:18:28midknight2k3ooh what
00:19:05trackMidknight there is a bug in the calender
00:19:16midknight2k3whats that track
00:19:34trackin the option where it asks weekly, annualy, monthly, annualy is mis-spelt
00:20:08midknight2k3its annually
00:20:14trackits mis-spelt
00:20:21midknight2k3well whatever
00:20:54trackI have a plugin for you
00:21:14trackstopwatch or countdown timer
00:21:23midknight2k3i was gonna try that actually
00:22:44trackSeriously an on-the-fly ID3 tag editor would be neat
00:22:53midknight2k3there is one
00:23:02trackI couldn't find it myself

00:37:51midknight2k3hi kurz
00:37:53midknight2k3not mid anymore
00:38:36kurzhaarrockerno, but the hair is growing already :)
00:38:38kurzhaarrocker[IDC]Dragon: you mentioned you wrote a test plugin for the mp3_playback.
00:39:03[IDC]Dragonyou want it?
00:39:16kurzhaarrockerJust to find out what I'm doing wrong ... :)
00:39:17midknight2k3plugin for mpeg playback?
00:39:23[IDC]Dragonit need a plugin API extension
00:39:38midknight2k3brb all
00:39:41kurzhaarrockerI don't care, I extended it already myself a lot ...
00:39:59 Nick midknight2k3 is now known as midk|BackIn20 (
00:40:04[IDC]Dragondid you set the volume?
00:40:19[IDC]Dragonare you getting buffer traffic?
00:40:56kurzhaarrockerI didn't really try to detect that, I just gave it one large block..
00:41:26[IDC]Dragonbut you need to set the volume, else it's at 0
00:41:43*kurzhaarrocker tries
00:41:54[IDC]Dragonbuffer traffic works if your callback is called after a while
00:42:30kurzhaarrockerIt wasn't called, but maybe I wasn't patient enough...
00:44:38kurzhaarrockerDo I have to use mpeg_sound_set or mp3_init or both to set the volume?
00:45:26[IDC]Dragonboth, iirc
00:50:05[IDC]DragonI just emailed you the plugin and my API
00:50:25*kurzhaarrocker jumps up and down in joy
01:00:05 Quit AciD ("")
01:00:05 Quit track (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
01:03:23kurzhaarrockerbtw: It might be interesting to have a setter for playtime, too. Imagine someone wants to play an excerpt from a song..
01:06:05[IDC]Dragonr u talking to me?
01:06:46[IDC]DragonI don't understand...
01:07:05 Nick midk|BackIn20 is now known as midknight2k3 (
01:07:08[IDC]Dragonthe mp3 functions are just for raw data transfer
01:07:31kurzhaarrockerBut you have functions like mp3_get_playtime
01:07:35[IDC]Dragonthey don't know about frames, etc
01:07:46[IDC]Dragonthat's not used
01:07:59[IDC]Dragonin fact, it may get removed again
01:08:22[IDC]Dragonwas just a migration path for mpeg.c's timekeeping
01:08:44[IDC]Dragonwhich should rather do that job
01:09:02[IDC]Dragonbedtime for me
01:09:10kurzhaarrockerWill the existing playback code be eleminated somewhen?
01:09:42kurzhaarrockerThen the timekeeping for mp3_playback will differ?
01:09:44[IDC]Dragonthat's what we want and use
01:10:14[IDC]Dragoncurrently, it does. the DMA tick counts the time
01:10:42[IDC]Dragonand updates the id3 struct directly
01:10:49[IDC]Dragonwhich is kind of dirty
01:11:11[IDC]Dragonbut there's lots of other stuff to worry about
01:11:26[IDC]Dragon(like me getting sleep)
01:11:29kurzhaarrockeryes, I know that. But when a plugin plays back something - is it then the plug ins job to keep track of the time?
01:11:38kurzhaarrockerhave a nice nap :)
01:11:54[IDC]Dragonyes, the plugin should do so.
01:12:15[IDC]DragonIt's not the job of the low-level DMA transport engine.
01:12:16kurzhaarrockerthanx for the code

01:17:54Bluechiplikewise ;)
01:19:18BluechipWaiting for the plugin system so I can fix the win32sim in a way which is acceptable for inclusion - not having win32sim means dev is off limits for me atm
01:19:36Bluechip*new plugin system
01:19:43midknight2k3its not very good
01:19:47midknight2k3i was trying it recently
01:20:01Bluechipwhats wrong?
01:20:30midknight2k3it just doesnt work well. crashes when i load some plugins, doesnt always display right...
01:20:37 Join track [0] (
01:20:43trackhey midknight
01:20:52midknight2k3hi track
01:20:58Bluechipguess it will be sometime then
01:21:00trackjust went to have dinner
01:21:07trackjIRC is still banning AOL users
01:21:19midknight2k3thats nice
01:21:21midknight2k3dont use it then
01:21:35trackwell bagder was here earlier, we were talking. he didn't mind my presence
01:21:43Bluechipalso couldn't get my new font going, so the audio controls kinda died too
01:22:20midknight2k3and you hated my screen :D
01:22:48Bluechipi think "hated" is a bit overkill :P
01:23:20midknight2k3disliked immensely
01:23:34Bluechiphow about "didn't like"
01:24:09Bluechipwasn't what i was after
01:24:59Bluechipdidn't like the the idea of 4 controls + big logo
01:25:10midknight2k3i thought it WAS 4 controls
01:25:13midknight2k3what is it then
01:25:30Bluechip4 iirc
01:25:32midknight2k3it is 4
01:25:51Bluechipstr, centre, corner & harmonics
01:26:03midknight2k3i had that
01:26:05midknight2k3anything else?
01:26:17Bluechipnot that I recall
01:27:06midknight2k3OK forgetting incident
01:27:42Bluechipshame i didn't work out quite what the controls did
01:27:49midknight2k3they sound nice
01:27:54midknight2k3too bad you cant make them work
01:27:58midknight2k3they sound REALLY NICFE
01:28:07midknight2k3they put "bass boost" to shame
01:28:07Bluechipnot a matter of can't
01:28:23Bluechipjust a matter of making it look good
01:28:40midknight2k3it doesnt matter
01:28:47Bluechipno, you're probably right
01:30:28 Quit _aLF ("bye")
01:31:19BluechipIf I ever suss out how to create a new font, I may make a release of the code, but I have already been told that it will not be included without font and language support
01:32:30Bluechipthat's fair, they need to maintain control ovr the project and it's style, i can undertand that
01:32:52midknight2k3do we have languages for the calendar?
01:32:54Bluechiphope they allow dwhino's GUI - that is truly awesome
01:33:00midknight2k3the icons?
01:33:02Bluechipdunno - don't use it
01:33:13midknight2k3is it further than before?
01:33:52midknight2k3just inconned main menu?
01:33:55midknight2k3or is there more to it now?
01:33:57Bluechiponly ever saw one vrsion and that beta was still crashing loads
01:34:06Bluechipjust main iirc
01:41:55Bluechipdo you know of any current bugs with rockbox ...just put on today's build and wondered if there were any surprises in store
01:42:32midknight2k3not really
01:42:34midknight2k3no major
01:42:46Bluechiphey, mk, did you fix the problems in the released clock code?
01:43:13midknight2k3not yet
01:44:23midknight2k3will soon sorry
01:44:28midknight2k3got a few more things to fix too
01:45:45Bluechipdid you ever see the mae stuff running?
01:46:02midknight2k3yes its very coool! i even beat it
01:46:12BluechipYOU FINISHED ONE!?
01:46:24BluechipWITHOUT asking for the solution?
01:46:33midknight2k3i used the footstep trail
01:46:34midknight2k3it was hare
01:46:42midknight2k3it took like 500 button pressed
01:46:44BluechipIt's set to "massive"
01:46:55Bluechipneeds some ideas to improve it
01:47:04Bluechipsmaller mazes i guess is a good start
01:47:14midknight2k3its neat
01:47:19Bluechipwas thinking of using mp3 files to supply the random numbers
01:47:26midknight2k3whats the crap on boot? its like 4 corners or something?
01:47:38Bluechipit one sprite show in four rotations
01:47:38midknight2k3try the rtc. thats random
01:47:53Bluechipso you could "play against" an mp3 file
01:48:17midknight2k3i know what you can do
01:48:18midknight2k3do it
01:48:31Bluechipwant to do things like "find the map"
01:48:34Bluechip"beat the baddie"
01:48:40Bluechip"do the task"
01:48:47midknight2k3music quiz, where it plays back 5 seconds of a random song at a random time and you have a list of 5 songs to pick from, and if you get it right you score a point
01:48:50Bluechip"find the key"
01:48:57midknight2k3that sounds cool
01:48:58Bluechipoh yess, me likey :)
01:49:38Bluechipthat's an awesome idea
01:50:08midknight2k3its on ipods
01:50:14midknight2k3it just sounds fun
01:50:27Bluechipoh :( I thought it was your idea
01:50:48Bluechiponly take a short time to write it
01:50:50midknight2k3i wish
01:50:55midknight2k3i cant
01:51:00midknight2k3the etch is calling
01:51:17 Quit matsl (Remote closed the connection)
01:51:17Bluechipdude, that's like 10 lines of code!?
01:51:54midknight2k3but it needs features
01:52:02midknight2k3like, move cursor instead of constant drawing
01:52:06midknight2k3then its 20 lines
01:52:42Bluechipjust prefix "plot" with "if (draw)"
01:53:12midknight2k3i dont use plot
01:53:16midknight2k3thats the problem
01:53:25Bluechipdrawpixel or whatever it's called
01:53:32midknight2k3i did that too
01:53:35midknight2k3it doesnt save it
01:53:36Bluechipthen you are doing it the hard way!

12:05:03trackHi Linus!!!!!!!!!!!
12:05:09trackI flashed my box last night! ;-)
12:05:20webmindplayer or recorder ?
12:05:31trackman, the boot up speed is fast
12:05:51trackHas Adiamas left? He hasnt' been around for yonks
12:05:54webmindwhy doesnt anyone have a player anymore ?
12:06:06LinusNbecause they suck?
12:06:16webmindfeels like hardly anyone develops for it ?
12:06:29webmindLinusN, that's lovely.. but i have one.. and can't afford a new archos
12:06:45LinusNwebmind: why don't you develop for it then?
12:07:06webmindcos i'm not that good at C or have the time for it ?
12:07:30webmindit would require me to first learn C and then get into the archos source..
12:07:49 Quit Cosmo` ("(13:31:38) (@Sticky_Vickie) i like a drink tho")
12:08:05LinusNthe sad part is that only the ones who really use the player can keep rockbox running on it
12:08:29webmindhow do you mean ?
12:08:33LinusNi mean, only a player user can notice if , for instance, the playlist editor is usable or not
12:08:45LinusNon the player
12:09:01trackLinus could you physically swop the Player's LCD for the Recorders?
12:09:09tracki mean 2x11 character cells is pretty useless
12:09:09webmindand i've got the problem that i can't seem to replicate my problems
12:09:10LinusNall we can do is to try to make it work on the player and then await response from the users
12:09:28LinusNtrack: yes and no
12:09:39webmindtrack, not really.. it works.. just less good
12:09:41LinusNregarding replacing the lcd
12:10:01webmindhow is that? yes and now ?
12:10:17LinusNit is possible to replace the lcd, but it requires quite some work to fit it
12:10:32LinusNthe backlight is a prob though
12:10:36webmindwhy ?
12:10:37trackim off cu guys
12:10:41webmindbye track

12:10:47LinusNit works differently on the two models
12:10:50webmindhow much would a display cost btw ?

21:20:07zsqareis it a function that can be used anywhere?
21:20:07trackHi Zagor ;-)
21:20:20zsqarethere's no reason for it not to right?
21:21:08Zagorzsqare: lcd_puts_scroll()
21:21:31zsqareand what goes in the parameters?
21:22:27Zagorsee apps/plugin.h
21:24:30trackI flashed my box yesterday Zagor
21:25:24Zagornice, isn't it
21:25:45trackyea, Im very impressed with the bootup speed
21:26:02trackDoes flashing the box leave more space in the MP3 buffer?
21:26:34Zagornot yet. [idc]dragon is working on that though.
21:26:42trackoh right
21:28:22zsqareis 8mb still the limit on how much memory you can have?
21:28:39trackTo flash to the latest versions, I just download the latest builds, and click on the .ucl file?
21:29:10Zagorzsqare: no, that's just how much anyone has put in it.
21:29:39Zagortrack: yes. you should grab the whole zip, though. the plugin api changes once in a while.
21:30:42trackoh right, so I download the latest zip, put everything on the archos and click on the ucl?
21:32:37trackdidn't know it was that easy
21:36:24trackHow many times can the eeprom be flashed before it wears out?
21:37:57Zagorsomething like 100.000 times
21:38:32trackbut I am impressed with the fast boot-up time
21:38:44Zagoryeah, it's nice
21:40:13trackCould you "un-flash" it just incase u needed to return the box to Archos for some reason?
21:41:21Zagorthat would probably be wise, yeah
21:41:56tracksince if u bought a new box and flashed it, it would void the warrenty
21:44:06Zagorthat's not certain
21:45:44trackwell if u send a flashed box to Archos they would say"Your warrenty is now voird"
21:46:28Zagorit's not their decision. there are laws controlling warranty.
21:46:45Zagorat least in europe

22:24:36[IDC]Dragonno control yet, just a dry running CD changer emulation as a plugin

22:28:30[IDC]Dragonsoftware-wise, I mean.
22:28:45[IDC]Dragonfrom the bevaviour, I can
22:28:49diddystar5im having a problem
22:28:54diddystar5can you help [IDC]Dragon?
22:28:59trackwhats up diddy?
22:29:10[IDC]Dragonyou need to tell first
22:30:06[IDC]DragonZagor: it should detect that it's in the car, load a different cfg, be remote controllable
22:30:11diddystar5well i made a "fake" vu meter for the sim (uses rand values) so icould test (my archos is dead atm), and it wont switch betwene log and linear scales
22:30:30diddystar5it always uses logarithmic
22:30:39diddystar5i dont see a thing wrong with the code
22:30:45Zagor[IDC]Dragon: yeah, pretty big change. and pretty special case... :-)
22:31:45trackmidknight did some good additions to vu meter
22:31:59[IDC]Dragonnot too special, there are other mens of control: friends are working on VW changer emu, infrared remote, handspring keyboards, etc.
