00:24:21midknight2k3whee hi
01:05:06 Join LinusN [200] (
01:05:21midknight2k3linus hi
01:05:28midknight2k3its linus
01:05:41midknight2k3i'm just starting on sound preset loading
01:06:39LinusNsound preset loading?
01:07:00midknight2k3like cfg loading but for sound settings
01:07:38LinusNwhy separate sound settings?
01:08:06midknight2k3because CFG loading is too multipurpose i think
01:08:25midknight2k3for example if you want a car preset and a home preset you may get contrast changed in the mix or something you don't want changed
01:08:26LinusNwould be unnecessary duplication of code
01:08:50LinusNthen create a .cfg file with only the sound settings in it
01:09:07midknight2k3yes, but what if you want to on the go
01:09:14midknight2k3most people wouldn't want to go home and manually do it
01:09:23LinusNi see your point
01:09:42LinusNso a "save sound settings as .cfg file" feature?
01:10:38midknight2k3well i was just going to copy and modify a small bit of the current CFG code, tell it to save to .rockbox/presets as filename.rsp and add a menu into sound settings
01:11:08 Join Nibbler [0] (
01:16:04midknight2k3sounds ok?
01:18:36LinusNi don't see the point of creating a new file type
01:18:55LinusNwhy not just save a .cfg file with only the sound setting related stuff
01:19:51midknight2k3so they can be in /.rockbox/presets and you can browse them by menu and load them with a browsing feature?
01:20:57midknight2k3if they don't have a new extension people might confuse them with CFG files, and also they won't have their own icon so people can't identify them easier
01:22:22LinusNthe whole idea of .cfg files is to be able to do exactly this
01:22:38midknight2k3exactly what?
01:22:51LinusNit's just that we also added an option to save the entire config as a .cfg file, for lazy people
01:22:55LinusNfor sound settings
01:23:39LinusN.cfg files were invented to have files with different sound settings
01:23:51LinusNand lots of people use them for that
01:24:45LinusNit's just that they either create them by hand, or save the .cfg file with rockbox and later on remove the unneeded settings
01:25:12midknight2k3yes, but the fact that they are indistinguishable from other CFG files is rather confusing (they'd have to use the same extension and icon)?
01:25:24LinusNwhat other .cfg files?
01:26:06LinusNmost people would probably like a "home", "travel" and a "car" file, for example
01:26:54LinusNthose files would probably contain mostly sound settings, but also backlight, spindown and a few other things
01:27:14LinusNhaving only sound settings would cripple the function imho
01:28:33midknight2k3in that case you'd use CFG files. but if you're at home you may want it all the same, just with modified sound settings. so that you can have a "party" preset and a "rock" preset and a "clear" preset etc
01:30:25midknight2k3don't get me wrong, cfg files will still exist! presets would just exist to modify only the sound settings without connecting to a PC
01:30:55LinusNso why not only do a "save sound settings as .cfg file" option?
01:31:29midknight2k3well, it'd be relatively simpyl to just remake a small portion of the code so we can have a different extension+icon+ save dir
01:31:43LinusNyes, but why?
01:31:56midknight2k3so we don't get them confused with "real" cfg files
01:32:19LinusNi'd say that it would be confusing for the user to have the same functionality with two file types
01:32:42LinusNi dont see why the presets can't be "real" .cfg files
01:33:25midknight2k3perhaps you don't get what i mean by "Real" cfg files. By "real" i mean loading other settings as well
01:34:03LinusNbut a .cfg file doesn't have to load other settings, it only loads the settings that are present in the file
01:34:49midknight2k3right. but like i was saying, it may also be handy to have that different extension and icon for simpler loading
01:35:03LinusNsimpler, how?
01:35:20LinusNpressing Play is equally simple regardless of the file type
01:35:42midknight2k3so you can say, oh, party.rsp is my sound settings, and party.cfg is my settings (shuffle, repeat all, backlight on, etc)
01:36:12LinusNso, for a party, you'd have to load two files?
01:36:21midknight2k3oh wait i just noticed that flaw :D
01:36:38midknight2k3well in that case you could just have one CFG file
01:36:48LinusNand why not just "party settings.cfg" and "party sound.cfg"?
01:36:56midknight2k3there you are
01:37:12midknight2k3because party sound.cfg would need to be edited by a computer
01:37:23midknight2k3i see your point
01:37:36LinusNnot if you create a "save sound settings as .cfg"
01:39:14midknight2k3oh wait
01:42:15midknight2k3well on another note
01:42:23midknight2k3are we getting superbass soon?
01:42:26midknight2k3well, mdb i mean
01:42:41LinusNyou mean mdb fine tuning?
01:43:44midknight2k3the sound it lets you have is wonderful but its not been officially implemented sadly
01:44:42 Quit mecraw_ ("Trillian (")
01:44:55LinusNyeah, i should get to work on that one of these days...
01:49:24midknight2k3heres the deal
01:49:39midknight2k3i'll sketch up an icon for .rsp and if it comes out good we keep the extension :D
01:49:59*LinusN sighs
01:50:07midknight2k3OH WAIT
01:50:08midknight2k3I GOT IT
01:50:14midknight2k3of course
01:50:19midknight2k3why didnt i see
01:50:32midknight2k3we just save it with a different extension, we don't need to duplicate the code
01:50:39*midknight2k3 does dilbert victory dance
01:52:19LinusNbut i still don't get it. why a different extension?
01:53:51midknight2k3so they are easily distinguishable from CFG files, right? if you think about it it'd be a lot easier to manage instead of mixing up CFG files... but yours is the final word. maybe sound as cfg would be good too
01:54:37LinusNi don't call it "mixing up". the .cfg files were invented for exactly this purpose
01:55:32midknight2k3not exactly mixing up, but having the two together could confuse people
01:56:17LinusN"the two"
01:56:31LinusNa .cfg file can contain anything
01:56:36midknight2k3thats it
01:56:43LinusNthe user decides what to put in them
01:56:46midknight2k3you cant tell that anything from looking at .cfg can you?
01:57:00midknight2k3.cfg says "ok im a cfg file, do i have sound settings inside or all settings?"
01:57:11LinusNno, but if you use a sensible file naming scheme you will be able to tell the difference
01:57:31LinusNor if you put them in different directories
01:57:49midknight2k3i don't get your logic! :) but ok, i'll just use CFG files
01:58:04midknight2k3but i'm allowed to put the option in "sound settings" right?
01:58:33LinusNthe logic is that .cfg files are meant to contain settings, and it is up to the user to decide which settings to put in them
01:58:57LinusNlike .bat files can contain any DOS command
01:59:25midknight2k3and the other logic is that no matter what you name them, seperate extensions will always tell you whether you have sound or global settings
01:59:49LinusNbut will you create new file types for recording settings too?
01:59:59LinusNor playlist settings?
02:00:10***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
02:00:13midknight2k3they all go under "settings"
02:00:25midknight2k3but those affect the core settings, not the actual sound
02:01:03midknight2k3like, we could label the sound settings as "equalizer" and argue all over again
02:01:09midknight2k3but that doesnt change their purpose
02:01:18LinusNmy point is that i don't see the need for separate file types for sound settings
02:01:47LinusNbut i can see the use for a "save sound settings" option
02:02:04midknight2k3it reduces the need to induce clever file naming schemes using a nifty on screen keyboard
02:04:10midknight2k3i just don't see a particular downside
02:04:15LinusNi'd say that it adds confusion for the user
02:04:34LinusNtwo file types for nearly the same thing
02:04:37midknight2k3sound settings files and cfg files? i'd say that wps files are a lot more confusing
02:04:48LinusNespecially when .cfg files contain sound settings too
02:05:03midknight2k3we should delete that functionality
02:05:08midknight2k3and port that to sound files
02:05:09LinusNabsolutely not
02:05:19midknight2k3ok, well one thing
02:05:25LinusNthen the user would have to play two files for a complete setup
02:05:53midknight2k3wouldnt it be just as confusing, if not more, to use the SAME file extension for similar things as opposed to a different one? the key word here is similar... it's not same
02:06:21LinusN.cfg files contain settings. period.
02:06:39midknight2k3and .rsp files contain sound settings. period
02:06:51LinusNsound settings are settings too
02:07:06midknight2k3but they are different kind of settings
02:07:24LinusNi don't agree
02:07:49midknight2k3i don't GET YOU
02:08:34LinusNtake "fade" as an example, is that a asound setting or just a setting?
02:08:48midknight2k3sound setting, i'd say
02:09:42midknight2k3because it affects the way you hear the music. if you pause, it decides whether you want to fade it or just halt it, that affects sound, i'd say it's a sound setting
02:10:09LinusNi can imagine that some people may disagree
02:10:27midknight2k3how so?
02:11:15LinusNbecause is is a function related to the starting and stopping of music, and not entirely the sound experience
02:11:44midknight2k3but if it makes a difference in hearing the music it's a "sound setting"
02:11:45midknight2k3for example
02:11:49midknight2k3backlight doesnt affect the sound
02:11:52midknight2k3general setting
02:11:57midknight2k3nor does "inverted line cursor"
02:12:01midknight2k3nor "shuffle"
02:12:04midknight2k3all general settings
02:12:10midknight2k3but fade, that affects what you hear
02:12:13midknight2k3"sound setting"
02:13:09LinusNi can agree with you, i was just trying to make a point that it serves little purpose to separate sound settings from the other
02:13:54midknight2k3that doesn't really change anything lol
02:14:50LinusNlet me put it like this: which problem do you want to solve with this?
02:15:04midknight2k3i want to make it simpler to load sound settings
02:15:16LinusNyou want a way to save and reload only the sound settings, right?
02:15:56LinusNbut saving them to a .cfg file doesn't solve this problem?
02:16:15midknight2k3it could
02:16:19midknight2k3but not the way i envision it
02:17:41LinusNi think of the .cfg files as an all-purpose solution, that can contain not only sound settings, but also other ones
02:17:47LinusNhandy, if you ask me
02:18:12midknight2k3me too
02:18:16midknight2k3BUT also sound presets
02:18:23midknight2k3that carry just sound settings
02:18:27midknight2k3but in a different extension
02:18:54midknight2k3that'd be pretty un-confusing. it'd have its own icon and extension, be in its own "PRESETS" folder, and accessible through the menu
02:19:22 Join BumpyC [0] (
02:19:27LinusNand why not .rockbox/presets/*.cfg ?
02:19:40midknight2k3hi BumpyC
02:20:01midknight2k3LinusN: becuase it's possible to mix them with CFG files which could be confusing
02:20:09BumpyCI must say, I agree with LinusN on this issue (I was reading the log)
02:20:14midknight2k3if they had their own icon and place, i think it'd be pretty straightforward
02:20:21midknight2k3you could of course move them elsewhere
02:20:32midknight2k3BumpyC: is that Bluechip? :)
02:21:04BumpyCmidknight2k3: no, I am Joseph Jones from the mailing list
02:21:37LinusNthink of it like .reg files
02:21:51midknight2k3ok linus
02:22:07midknight2k3...are you taking that point further?
02:22:26midknight2k3ok lol
02:22:31MTi think linus is spot on
02:22:33midknight2k3well i can see your point too
02:22:42midknight2k3ok i lose
02:22:43MTthey are both config files
02:23:00midknight2k3not the SAME configging going on
02:23:02MTi see where m2k is coming from
02:23:19MTso should we have a .resume for resume settings too?
02:23:32midknight2k3we have that, no?
02:23:41midknight2k3.playlist_control, actually
02:24:05MTthats different, you dont play dot files
02:24:29LinusNsome day, someone will want to add non-sound options to the soundsettings files
02:24:37LinusNfor convenience
02:24:38midknight2k3forget i said it ok
02:24:40midknight2k3cfg it is

09:36:17moormasterdoes anybody know which video codecs are supported by the avitoyuv - tool?
09:36:47moormasterI have tried to convert a video to .rvf but there is only random flicker instead of a video on the archos player
09:37:28dwihnoProbably no codec is supported. You probably need uncompressed AVI.
09:39:04moormasterBut then there would be very big video files if you try to convert a whole film. Wouldnt it be better to release a codec for .rvf? Maybe video-edit tools convert the videos a bit faster than the console-tools
09:41:12dwihnoYou make the videos the proper resolution?
09:41:20moormaster112x64 yes
09:41:29dwihnoWell, test with a small clip
09:41:44dwihno(I haven't tried encoding myself, I am only presuming the codec stuff)
09:42:26moormasterthats what i am doing now ;) I just meant that it is unpractical to work with uncompressed files when they are whole movies and not only 10 seconds
09:43:17moormasterare there other things that must match? (fps or sth?)
09:43:28dwihnoerhm. read that document that came with the tools...

22:20:49T^JulioVegalol deutsch?
22:20:59T^JulioVegame 2
22:21:03moormastergut ;)
22:21:27T^JulioVegabenutz doch einfach das netzkabel zur stromversorgung
22:21:43moormasterwäre doch praktisch, wenn ich das USB Kabel als Spannungsversorgung nehme und die Jukebox weiter normal benutzen kann, ohne dass sie sofort in den USB 2.0 Festplattenmodus wechselt
22:21:54T^JulioVegageht net
22:21:57T^JulioVegawart mal
22:21:57moormasterdann muss ich den Netzadapter nichgt immer mitschleppen
22:23:28T^JulioVegastand irgendwo auf der hp dass die das net machen weil du ja wenn die angeschlossen is dateien ändern kannst und wenn du dann gleichzeitig auffer festplatte von der jukebox mitm display rumguckst kriegt der probs oder so
22:24:24moormasternaja hätte ja sein können, dass die Firmware erst selber in den Festplattenmodus umschaltet. Aber scheinbar zeigt sie nur an, dass eine USB Verbindung besteht und sperrt sich solange selbst
22:25:33moormasterwobei es auch schon vorkam, dass ich die Jukebox komplett resetten musste, bevor sie Windows wieder erkannt hat. Vorher hat es nur behauptet, dass sich ein unidentifizierbares Gerät am USB Anschluss befindet
22:25:58 Part oxygen77 ("Leaving")
22:25:58T^JulioVegajo war bei nem freund von mir auch so als ich die treiber installiert hab, hast du winxp?
22:27:10T^JulioVegaich glaub das liegt an winxp der sagt ja auch so was von wegen treibersignatur fehlt und all so n zeugs
22:28:02moormasternaja aber meistens gehts ja auch. Und wenns nach Windows geht sind ja immer nur die Treiber signiert, die sowieso schon mitinstalliert sind.
22:28:35T^JulioVegamanche andern auch z.b. detonator aber stimmt schon
22:30:21moormasterWenn das jedoch eine Art Bug der Firmware wäre, könnte man das doch beabsichtigt hervorrufen, um die Benutzung als externe Festplatte zu unterbinden, damit man ungehindert die Jukebox nutzen kann. Und wenn man wieder in den USB Modus wechselt, ist alles wieder normal.
22:30:21moormasterAber wenn dieses Problem eh nur unter Windows auftritt, nützt das ja auch nix
22:31:07c0uttaactually track, it's just plain C
22:31:27T^JulioVegaah c's all the same ;)
22:31:39T^JulioVegajo sogar nur unter winxp
22:31:50T^JulioVegaalso bei mir unter win2k läuft's prima
22:32:07c0uttai think you could use c++, but the core developers decided on c
22:32:41moormasterhatte das Problem auch nur, als ich die Platte öfters reinstecken und wieder rausziehen musste, dass er es dann plötzlich nicht mehr wollte. Hatte versucht ein VIdeo in rvf zu konvertieren
22:33:05 Nick c0utta is now known as c0utta{afk} (
22:34:32moormasterda wäre es zum Beipsiel auch praktisch gewesen, wenn man hätte einfach die Firmware umschalten können, anstatt immer das Kabel zu ziehen
22:34:35T^JulioVegajo bei mir hängt der auch manchma wenn ich größere sachen draufziehn will
22:37:21moormasteris das eigentlich normal, dass der mehrere Tage rechnet, wenn ich ein DivX-Video in YUV umwandeln lasse?
22:39:11T^JulioVegawenn du's net von pc-festplatte auf pc-festplatte machst, ja
22:39:36T^JulioVegawenn du zum beispiel das original auf netzwerk-pc oder mp3-player hast
22:39:49moormasterne war alles auf der lokalen Platte

22:43:17pfavrReally like to meet the RockBox hackers
22:43:31LinusNtime for a Rockbox DevCon then
22:43:36moormasterthan I should try to google for it ;)
22:43:44moormasteror then
22:43:57pfavrHow about next week? or this weekend?
22:44:18LinusNnext week sounds good to me, let's keep in touch
22:44:20LinusNgotta go
22:44:22 Part LinusN
22:44:23T^JulioVegaanyone here who understands the rockbox developement tutorial?
22:45:00pfavrHaven't read it, but I managed to make a development environment at my other computer....
22:45:07moormasterme too
22:45:07pfavrAnd check the stuff out from CVS
22:45:11moormasterbut without cvs
22:45:32T^JulioVegayeah i don't understand that part
22:45:43T^JulioVegapoint 8
22:47:42moormastermmh I have downloaded some cvs clients (even one for windows) but i don't know how to use them
22:48:03T^JulioVegai don't even know what i have to do now
22:48:34pfavrI use linux
22:48:48moormasterI bet under linux it is not easier ;)
22:48:51pfavrSo I can't help you there...
22:48:59pfavr(for me it is:-)
22:49:20moormastermaybe you have to download cvs first somewhere
22:49:48T^JulioVegai have the sourcecode so i think i don't need cvs
22:50:01T^JulioVegaDownload and unpack RockBox sourcecode to /home/rockbox OR check out via CVS
22:50:22moormasterso you dont want to use cvs?
22:50:22pfavrYes, cvs is only needed for getting the sourcecode from cvs
22:50:59moormasterHave you got the bash-console working?
22:51:01T^JulioVegai think i'm getting it on now
22:51:58pfavrHey, I do know Cygwin... but normally I get it from
22:52:09 Quit AciD (Connection timed out)
22:52:13T^JulioVegabut wtf do i need cygwin for?
22:52:18pfavrCygwin contains a lot of tools... cvs amongst others
22:52:18 Quit methangas (" HydraIRC -> <- Get hot chicks here!")
22:52:23moormasterfor compiling it
22:52:54pfavrI think the rockbox-sdk_win32.tar.bz2 contains cygwin also
22:53:09moormasterbtw why is it still possible to mute the sound while the keylock is on?
22:53:22pfavrit is a faster way of getting both cygwin and the binutils for the rockbox (a cross compiler - GCC)
22:53:24moormasterI reportet it some time ago as bug
22:53:56pfavrI hope you get the develoment environment going:-)
22:54:09T^JulioVegai think for the ones who turn the vol to max and then play and immediately lock the keys, so that they don't destroy their eirs ^^
22:54:19T^JulioVegaears i mean ^^
22:55:15moormasteryes but it could at leat be included in the options weather mute should be possibel while keylock or not
22:55:57moormasterpossibel -> possible ;)
22:56:29T^JulioVegamaybe they just want to ärger you ^^
22:56:54moormasternot just me. There are many posts which just havent been answered
22:57:04moormasterwhats wtf?

23:07:32moormastermmh i have downloaded it, too. It was included in my files
23:08:58T^JulioVegathis is what i downloaded
23:09:19T^JulioVegai see
23:09:21moormasteri have downloaded the daily builds source
23:09:31moormasterbut it should make no difference
23:09:39pfavrjust got this idea: how about a scroll lyrics while playing the song plugin?
23:09:40T^JulioVegayeah i unpacked it wrong
23:10:04T^JulioVegau cn view the lyrics text-file while listening
23:10:15T^JulioVegano need for a plugin
23:10:55moormasterand who wants to write the synchronisation timings that the plugin knows to which line it has to scroll at which time
23:10:58pfavrI was thinking like automatic - like a screensaver... if there is a file with the same name as the mp3 in the same dir but with extension .lyr or something... then show it automatically
23:11:49T^JulioVegaif u write it... nice idea
23:11:50pfavrjust count the lines and adjust the scroll speed so it scrolls through the text file in the same time as the duration of the mp3
23:12:09T^JulioVegaget working ;)
23:12:16pfavrshowing 4 lines... should be fine I gues...
23:12:33pfavrwell, I reaaally should be working on something else u know

23:42:05Fredmy father knows more about linux than about windows
23:43:07Fredah does anyone now how to get those files required for linux without searching the whole gnu ftp?

23:43:54moormasterhow to start cygwin ;)
23:44:02moormastersemm -> seems

23:48:18Fredund nacher wars die falsche datei und ich hab umsonst 13 mb mit 23 kb/s gesaugt ^^
23:48:52moormasterhattest du eigentlich die Batchdatei umgeschrieben zum Starten von cygwin?
23:48:58 Quit uski ("Fermeture du client")
23:49:10Fredmusste man das?
23:49:17moormasterweil die wechselt immer nach C:\cygwin\bin und versucht von da dann bash zu starten
23:49:28moormasterfällt mir grad so auf
23:50:39Fredimmer diese c:-programme
23:50:52Fredwer hat schon nur 1 partition?
23:51:15moormasterich seit dem ich meine 2. Platte in einen anderen Rechner verfrachtet hab ;)
23:51:35moormasteraber C hat einfach jeder normale User auf jeden Fall
23:51:50Fredjo aber nicht jeder installiert alles nach c
23:52:09moormasterwoher sollen die Entwickler wissen, auf welche Partition jeder User das gerne drauf hätte
23:52:53moormasterdie einen haben auf d nur backups andere nur spiele wieder andere haben da Linux drauf usw.
23:53:01Fredkann man ja machen dass man die irgendwo zentral einstellt und alle programme die die brauchen gucken sie dnn da nach, schwer is das net
23:53:20moormasterjo in der regfile ;)
23:53:32Fredich hab c,d,e,f,g und linux-partition ^^
23:53:54moormasterund die Batch ist ja nur für die Leute, die nich wissen, dass man die Console mit bash −−login -i aufrufen muss
23:54:23Fredoder die zu faul sind, das einzugeben ^^
23:54:33moormasterjo ;)
23:55:07Fredso wie ich, ich hab mir n perl programm geschrieben was pg heißt, dass macht nix anderes als ping ^^
23:55:24Fredwar nur zu faul das jedes mal einzutippen
23:56:01Fredweil irc sons immer ping timeout hatte jetz hab ich den ganzen tag n ping laufen ^^
