03:52:29midknight2k3hi sWampy
03:52:58sWampyhey, just got a recorder from amazon today and am checking out rockbox.
03:53:52midknight2k3how much was it?
03:54:13sWampy199-50rebate so 149 I guess.
03:56:01sWampytrying to figure out if I should flash it, do you have to hold down on for as long to get it to cut on if you flash it? You have to hold the on button on till the progress bar starts to flash or it cuts itself off.
03:56:43midknight2k3you just have to press it
03:56:55midknight2k3but if you flash it only takes about 3-4 seconds to boot
03:57:06sWampyhmm, wonder if mine if broke.
03:57:21midknight2k3which model?
03:57:58sWampyhmm says jukebox recorder 20 v2.
03:58:01***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
03:58:15midknight2k3v2 eh
03:58:18midknight2k3and you have to hold it?
03:59:37sWampyyes, it's wierd, you push it and red and green lights come on, screen lights up, display starts to show progress bar, and if you let go of on button before it gets like 1/4 of the way across, it cuts itself back off.
04:01:20midknight2k3well it should fix that
04:02:29sWampyhow do you back up the eeprom so if it doesn't I can flash it back and return it for exchange?
04:04:51midknight2k3you do Menu->info->debug->dump rom contents
04:04:59midknight2k3i'm here to help if you want it
04:05:59sWampyI just found that, I had read the instructions 3 times and someway I guess I was just skimming and remember seeing make sure you backup, but not remembering it saying how to till I really read them. ;-/
04:06:36midknight2k3no problem
04:06:39midknight2k3like i said, glad to help
04:09:08sWampyany suggestions on the best way to organize songs, at first I had artist/song.mp3 and had like 700 artists, and the directory over flowed, so I divided them like a-e/f-m/n-Z or something. Is something like that what most people do, is there a better way, or can you bump the max number of directories up. First time I had to worry about 20gigs of mp3's in one device. ;-)
04:10:04midknight2k3ok well
04:10:07midknight2k3i'd recommend
04:10:28midknight2k3genre->artist->album->XX - song.mp3
04:10:54midknight2k3perhaps an A-L and M-Z category for the genre subfolders if you must
04:14:43sWampyhmm I should work on my genre's, right now mine are messed up, 2 genre's rock/metal/pop and rap/hiphop/r&b, and very few complete even nearly complete albums.
04:15:11midknight2k3try all of them organized then
04:15:23midknight2k3rock, metal, pop, rap, hip-hop, r&b
04:15:28midknight2k3then artist
04:15:30midknight2k3then song.mp3
04:15:35midknight2k3YAY this is funny
04:15:41midknight2k3you can watch vids on your archos :)
04:16:16sWampyI wish I had had the bucks to buy the color 60 gig thing with camera and tv tunner. ;-)
04:16:37midknight2k3you dont need one to watch video clips
04:16:44midknight2k3and it doesnt have a tv tuner
04:16:51midknight2k3nor does it include a camera
04:16:56sWampyI have a couple of seasons of futurama for my gba.
04:17:11midknight2k3you can port them to rockbox format and watch them
04:17:21sWampytheir website used to show a tuner addon.
04:17:32midknight2k3odd. they don't make one
04:18:37sWampybefore the one with the camera addon came out they were saying it could play music/videos/take still shots/film movies/act like a tivo.
04:19:29midknight2k3you can play music and videos, and you can take pictures and film movies. but no tv tuner (which is a TV reciever) and no TiVo
04:20:39sWampyportable pvr would rock.
04:23:11sWampyplug it in at night, it records your shows to watch on the way to and from work, or even better at work. ;-)
04:23:26midknight2k3thats actually pretty neat sounding
04:24:20sWampythe press release made it sound like it was going to be able to, well maybe next version.
04:24:56midknight2k3yay tastey
04:25:30sWampyfor $149 this thing is pretty amazing.
04:25:54midknight2k3and it can do videos
04:25:56midknight2k3in grayscale
04:26:06midknight2k3even though its a black/white lcd HA
04:26:15midknight2k3da daddum
04:26:16midknight2k3dumm dum
04:26:19midknight2k3music to video
04:28:00sWampyis there a search plugin? where you can search for a word in a song title?
04:29:59midknight2k3sadly not officially
04:30:48midknight2k3there is a patch for it i believe
04:31:42sWampyahh, that looks like it would be a hand feature.
04:31:58sWampyhandy even.
04:32:09midknight2k3really even
04:32:14midknight2k3REALLY EVEN OMG TASTY
04:32:18midknight2k3i have issues so ignore them
04:32:23sWampythat and play random.
04:32:44midknight2k3shuffle is there for you
04:33:33sWampyjust shuffle random song from anywhere on the drive? or do you have to keep a playlist with all songs listed and play it shuffled?
04:35:56midknight2k3you can make a playlist of all the songs on the drive very easily- just do menu, playlist options, then "create playlist"
04:36:02midknight2k3make sure you're at the root when you do
04:36:11midknight2k3takes anywhere from 30 secs to 5 mins or so
04:36:15midknight2k3it will show your progres
04:37:02sWampyright I figured that out and then when you played it, with shuffle on you got any random song. Just wondered if there was a mode where it just played random songs without making the playlist. ;-)

23:46:12[IDC]Dragoncould the bus timing be too aggressive?
23:46:32[IDC]Dragonfor some PIO mode we use
23:46:41Zagori don't know, really. i haven't looked into it.
23:47:11Zagorhave you looked in the ata spec? is there any mention of bus timing?
23:47:20[IDC]DragonLinus once fixed some problem with waitstates, for the recording code.
23:47:36[IDC]DragonI'm no ATA expert
23:48:07[IDC]Dragondunno which PIO mode we pretend
23:50:07[IDC]DragonI'd be surprized to find something in the spec like: you can do this bus timing, but don't read too often.
23:50:36Zagorbut there has to be something like it. the ata devices are not infinitely fast.
23:50:59[IDC]DragonSure. The bus has to have a certain timing.
23:51:19[IDC]DragonI suspect this timing to be too agressive.
23:51:26Zagorvery possible

23:51:56[IDC]DragonI can't imagine that we're not allowed to read back to back while the bus timing is OK.
