09:50:48dwihnoZagor, LinusN, Bagder, should the charging code always run when USB is connected?
09:51:22Zagordwihno: do you mean if the code is written that way today, or if we should write it that way?
09:58:20LinusNdwihno: no, it shouldn't always do it
09:58:45LinusNit depends on if the drive is spinning or not, which battery capacity you have, and the capacity of your charger
10:05:30dwihnoZagor: It should work that way. Otherwise, the battery will be depleted.
10:05:45dwihno(when being connected for an extended period of intensive file transfer)
10:06:25dwihnoLinusN: Do you think it is possible to write software which can charge the player in such a smart fashion?
10:07:30LinusNrockbox can't tell if the drive is spinning in usb mode
10:08:20LinusNhowever, we can charge more aggressively
10:08:22dwihnoLinusN: Using the current software, should I disable deep discharge to obtain the archos-fw behaviour?
10:08:37LinusNnever ever use deep discharge in usb mode
10:09:04Zagorwe should ignore the deep discharge flag during usb mode
10:09:26LinusNyes (maybe we already do that)
10:09:42dwihnoIs there anything else one could do?
10:09:45LinusNwe should really look into the charging
10:10:10Zagoryes, it needs a major overhaul
10:10:51dwihnoalong with the ui
10:11:24Zagorwell at least we know what the charging code is supposed to look like :)
10:11:27*dwihno talks too much and codes too little ;)
10:11:54***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
10:12:54LinusNwe could at least start with tweaking the trickle intervals and the charging max-time
10:14:51dwihnoSince you guys know how the code is, is a major rewrite required in order to extend for, let's say color displays, gui widgets and so forth?
10:21:28Zagordefined "major" :-)
10:22:11Zagor"gui widgets" is rather general. just supporting colour icons instead of b/w isn't so hard, but replacing the menus with a mobile phone-style icon navigation system is more work.
10:29:16dwihnoWith a bitmap display, that would be pretty neat
10:29:23dwihnoI see icons with text below
10:29:39dwihnoMuch like the menu systems on a cell phone, but a tad more sophisticated

10:54:48amiconnLinusN: I found some problems with the buttons hooked up to the adc, at least on the player :(
10:55:33amiconnWhen cold-startet after a longer off period, I get spurious button-presses, much like those reported by various users on the ml
10:57:10amiconnThis goes away when the box is running for some time, even if I then shut it off for a short time and restart
10:59:59amiconnIt shows up in a way that, when I start the box and the leave the resume? request unanswered, it gets answered randomly, both yes or no are possible.
11:00:46amiconnThis can happen after some seconds, or may take more than a minute. If it doesn't resume, I even got random cursor movements in the browser
11:01:51amiconnI believe this has to do with the adc driver, but is covered for recorders by the debounce routine. There is no debounce for the player.
11:02:21amiconnHowever, the adc driver code does look 100% correct to me, checked several times...
11:02:51amiconnWe could add debounce for the player as well, but this would only be a symptom fix
11:03:27amiconnIt certainly has nothing to do with flash start, as it also happens when I boot rockbox through archos fw

11:14:47LinusNwe have a bug report on it too
11:15:14LinusNthe recorder debounce is a symptom fix too
11:16:41LinusNthe increased conversion rate catches short glitches more easily
11:16:52LinusNso debouncing is more necessary
11:18:15amiconnBut the glitch theory doesn't explain why the effect goes away when the box is running for some time...
11:27:09LinusNthe glitches come from voltage "dips", typically when the drive spins up
11:27:23LinusNin your case it may even be temperature dependent
11:37:35 Quit AciD (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
11:38:43amiconnLinusN: I don't know, but maybe this also changes when using adc single mode instead of scan mode. Old versions of the adc driver did this...
11:43:52amiconnI also found a weird thing in sh7034.h: It defines Port B data bits, unconditionally for all models. However, most of these are only valid on the recorder (and I think these definitions don't belong there at all?)
11:53:47LinusNthat's old stuff, i doubt that it is used

16:56:28amiconnLinusN: Any chance that you find some time to do tests on your oldplayer? I'd like to undo the uart boot mod and close my player again, but won't do so unless I'm sure the bootloader is done...
16:58:12leety-AravilWhat is an "boot mod"?
16:58:27amiconnWhen undoing the uart boot mod, I'll try to take photos as well
16:59:24LinusNamiconn: i'll try to find some time, but i'm really busy right now
16:59:42amiconnleety-Aravil: "boot mod" = "boot modification". Es gibt eine Möglichkeit, die Archos-Jukeboxen unabhängig vom Flash-ROM etc. mit einer kleinen im Boot-ROM eingebauten Routine über die serielle Schnittstelle zu booten.
17:00:20leety-Aravilwas bringt das?
17:01:17amiconnDamit kann man Jukeboxen mit "verflashtem" oder ganz leerem Flash-ROm "wiederbeleben". Unbedingt nötig zur Entwicklung des Flash-Bootloaders...

17:02:19leety-Aravildann ist sozusagen die Rockbox direkt im Boot-rom und man braucht keinen extra ordner mehr für sie?
17:04:27amiconnDoch, den Ordner braucht man noch. Nur der "Kern" ist im Flash-ROM. Das spart das Laden von Platte -> schnellerer Start.
17:04:46leety-Aravilwie viel schneler?
17:10:08leety-AravilIch hab mir mal das Video vom Start angesehen und muss sagen das es das für den Aufwand nicht so bringt!
17:10:55amiconnHängt davon ab, welches Jukeboxmodell und welche Festplatte. Der Archos-Bootloader der Recorder-Modelle ist besonders lahm. Recorder ~12s -> ~4s
17:11:29amiconnPlayer ~9s -> ~5s (noch nicht veröffentlicht, aber lüppt schon ganz gut :) )
17:11:35leety-AravilIch finde den aufwand schon sehr groß!
17:12:21amiconnInwiefern? Für den User ist es eigentlich einfach (wenn das ROM flashbar ist).

18:35:44leety-aravilIch lese mir gerade was zum romfalshen duch!
18:36:11leety-aravilWie gesagt ist mein English zimlich schlecht: Second, you need an in-circuit programmable flash. Chances are about 85% that you have, but Archos also used an older flash chip which can't do the trick. You can find out via Rockbox debug menu, entry Hardware Info. If the flash info gives you question marks (Flash M=?? D=??), you're out of luck. The only chance then is to solder in the right chip (SST39VF020), at best with the firmware already
18:36:46leety-aravilHeißt das jetzt das wenn in der "hw info" angezeigt wird "flash M=?? D=??" kann man nicht flashen?
18:38:54amiconnJa, heißt es
18:39:44leety-aravildann hab kann ich das schon mal net machen!
18:45:59leety-aravilworan kannich erkenne ob ich den Recorder mit USB 2.0 oder 1.1 habe?
18:46:09leety-aravilich hab nur 1.1 Treiber für Wundows installiert!
18:46:24leety-aravilIch hab Recorder Interface 2.1B
18:49:39amiconn(1) An der Aufschrift auf der Frontplatte ganz unten. Mine says "20 GB - USB 2.0 Hard Disk" (20 and 2.0 printed in red) (2) Daran, dass man für Windows 2000 oder XP keine extra Treiber braucht. (3) An der Geschwindigkeit!
18:49:55amiconnOoops, Denglish mix
18:50:49leety-aravilIch brauch bei meinen Mobo irgendwie schon extra treiber!
18:50:53leety-aravilIch hab so nur 1.1.!
18:51:15leety-aravilauf hab ich gelesen das die 15er aber 2.0 und 1.1 haben können!
18:51:56amiconnHat mit den Mainboardtreiber überhaupt nichts zu tun. Auch wenn das Mainboard nur USB1.1 kann, brauchen die USB2.0-Jukeboxen keinen Treiber
18:52:26leety-aravilja klar aber mein PC haut max. mit 1.1 geschwindigkeit raus!
18:53:09leety-aravilsind die Taster für z.B das Stererkreuz nur obendrauf gelötet oder gehen die Stifte duch die Platine duch?
18:53:12amiconnDas hat auch nichts mit USB1.1 oder 2.0 zu tun, sondern damit, dass die von Archos verwendete USB2.0-Bridge vollständig USB Mass Storage kompatibel ist, die USB1.1-Bridge hingegen nicht
