19:35:13midknight2k3like what
19:35:18top_blokea lot
19:35:31top_blokeand i finally put in shuffle in the playlist viewer
19:36:14top_blokeand a button to move a file after the one youre playing
19:37:32top_blokewhats the diff b/w quee and add
19:38:41top_blokeit takes the file youre pointing at in the playlist viewer and moves it to 1 spot after whats playing
19:39:12midknight2k3code it yourself
19:39:24top_blokeit was hardcore
19:39:34top_blokei stayed up coding it

21:15:56Doggerhi Zagor
21:16:15Doggeryou know about mas right?
21:16:59Zagorit's not dma??? that's odd, that's the only thing that *is* dma on the old models :-)
21:17:11Doggerits strange
21:17:20Dogger8 gio lines go direct to the mas
21:17:25Doggerdata lines I mean
21:17:35DoggerI havent found the code yet, and cant find the other control lines
21:17:48Doggerbut at the moment, looks like its done in software over that
21:17:58Zagorhow silly
21:18:04Doggeryeah seems odd to me
21:18:15Doggerperhaps they couldnt work out how to fix the mas to the chips dma
21:18:26Doggerata is all thats done via dma on av300 it seems
21:18:30Doggerapart from sdram of course
21:18:50DoggerI've got the mp3 decoder to run,
21:18:58Doggerbut still cant quite get to send it data
21:19:08Doggerhey! I found the wav decoding code the other day ;)
21:19:17Doggeryou have to upload dsp code to the mas chip
21:19:20DoggerI found the dsp code
21:19:32Doggershouldn't be too hard I dont think
21:19:44Doggeralthough legalities of using the dsp code might get in the way
21:20:12Doggeralthough if you just tell people where to get the dsp code,
21:20:15Zagorcan be worked around by making an extractor, thus using the code shipped by archos
21:20:16Doggerlike how to extract it,
21:20:21Doggerthen they can build it themself
21:20:40Doggerwould be cool to get wav playback working
21:20:49Doggerwma is done via the main dsp though
21:20:57Doggerthen I think its sent to the mas as a wav
21:21:12Doggeryeah not very nice
21:21:27Doggerdid you see I got tv out working
21:21:52Zagorcan you control the cpu clocking, or otherwise affect power use?
21:21:54Doggerhandy that archos included a memory peek in their serial interface ;)
21:22:08 Quit Lethal|Bert ("lat0rz")
21:22:12Doggeryes as far as I know you can do power save on the cpu, and on the dsp as well
21:22:30Doggerthen obviously you have backlight brightness (not worked out yet), and ata power down
21:23:09Doggergot a compact flash to pcmcia converter
21:23:25Doggertried using it on the av300, but am not sure its pumping out enough power for the ethernet card
21:23:37Doggerthe card doesnt seem to get power
21:23:47Doggerprolly a shot in the dark really at this stage ;)
21:23:57Doggerthat stuff is done in a CPLD though
21:24:00Doggerwhich is a right pain
21:24:05Doggerall proprietory
21:24:10Doggerand doesn't seem very good either
21:24:27Doggerif you read certain memory addresses used to control the cpld the unit just shuts down
21:25:06Doggeroh did you try 0.6e bootloader by the way?
21:25:32Doggerseems to work, havent had any bugs yet... apart from a lamer who said 'when I select a video from the bootloader it doesnt play!'
21:39:55 Quit uski ("Fermeture du client")

22:16:31elinenbewith the lastest english.voice
22:16:32[IDC]DragonI'd like to find out why

22:18:38[IDC]Dragonis it just the top entries missing,

22:26:44hardeepZagor: is stack size really all that important for the create_playlist() function? It's called from the main thread which has 8k of stack space. Debug menu shows that it uses about 25% leave ~6k.
22:27:06elinenbe1.200.225 should be the size of the english.voice file and that should be in the .rockbox dir −− right?
22:27:07hardeepthat's like 20 recursions assuming stack usage of 300 per call
22:27:08Zagorhardeep: how deep is your deepest level?
22:27:14hardeepis my math wrong somewhere?
22:27:41[IDC]Dragonelinenbe: in .rockbox/langs/
22:27:44elinenbehardeep: what are you working on?
22:27:56elinenbe[IDC]Dragon: okay −− let me try...
22:28:10hardeepwe can even cap the levels to 10... who really has a directory structure larger than that
22:28:16Zagorno you're right. i'm just being paranoid about it. we should rewrite it to work with a single buffer anyway. someone is bound to cause a stack overflow otherwise.
22:28:22hardeepelinenbe: absolutely nothing. :)
22:28:34[IDC]DragonZagor: you also get that no-voice bug at the top menu?

22:32:22DoggerZagor: quick question about mas, sorry couldnt find it in the code..... Once I've told the mas to start the mp3 decoder app, and verified its started, do I then just need to send it data, or do I need to tell the mas anything else?
22:32:50Dogger(i've done the codec setup, config setup etc)
22:33:23elinenbe[IDC]Dragon: I just tested it... Top menus work, but the FFwd/Rewind menu does not talk (just the top menu) −− the items in that menu speak
22:33:27ZagorDogger: i don't know, actually. linus wrote nearly all the mas code, and i haven't looked much at it.
22:33:34Doggerah ok np
22:34:08Zagorexcept that we of course don't send it any data...

23:41:45Zagori don't quite remember the concept. you don't have a mail archive link?
23:46:58amiconnZagor, hardeep: I had an idea recently to get the recording code a bit smaller...
23:49:06Zagorhardeep: that's a rather complex design. remind me why we need nested playlists again...?
23:52:54hardeepZagor: it actually sounds more complicated then it really is. I wouldn't say we need nested playlists but it's convenient to have when trying to group multiple playlists together.
23:53:52hardeepit's also handy when inserting playlists into the dynamic playlists... we would no longer have to write out every track from the playlist
23:53:58Zagorhave you read the code yet? how is he loading playlists? it seems to me there'll be a lot of swapping back and forth, or some sort of memory alloction scheem
23:54:44hardeepit's actually pretty clean.... he just recursively loads the playlists as they arrive
23:54:48hardeepstoring the indices
