00:04:30Rollo_McFlurryhi, can anyone tell me how long it usually takes to upgrade using the modified hex file on a iHP-140?
00:05:25preglowhalf a minute?
00:05:47hubbelRollo_McFlurry: the thing is that it does not poweroff or reboot automaticly
00:06:17Rollo_McFlurryah ok, it's been updating a good 20 mins now and i still have the HD light on.
00:06:19preglowmine does
00:06:26hubbelhum.. i dont remember exactly, but i think one has to press off or reset?
00:06:28preglowmine just powers off when it's done
00:06:32hubbelbut then after the reboot
00:06:51preglowwell, try switching it off
00:06:51hicksMine took about 20-30seconds then turned itself off.
00:06:51hubbelrockbox does some calculation on the FAT
00:07:06hicksJust like when you do a normal firmware update.
00:07:08preglowRollo_McFlurry: so you're still on the flashing screen?
00:07:09yngwimine did also an automatic turn off, exactly like the iriver version
00:07:17Rollo_McFlurryoh dear :)
00:07:31preglowbattery status?
00:07:36hicksMake sure you power is plugged in :P
00:07:43Rollo_McFlurryyeah got the power on
00:07:52preglowoh well
00:07:57ehntooRollo_McFlurry, that's not good.
00:08:03preglowif it's still trying to flash, you might as well try to switch it off
00:08:09preglowit's not going to complete now
00:08:16preglowso pray it's not even started flashing
00:08:25preglowif it's still showing the disk light, there's hope yet
00:09:22yngwigood luck
00:09:32Slashericommitted buggy patch. nights :)
00:10:03Rollo_McFlurryi'm charmed, had to hit the reset but it's booted back to original firmware
00:10:23preglowyeah, i figured that
00:10:31preglowit didn't succeed in reading the image
00:10:39preglowi've never seen that happen before
00:11:53Rollo_McFlurryi'll try again, dont think i did anything wrong though
00:12:08preglowi don't think it'll change much
00:12:09preglowbut sure

02:19:56preglowmostly it's just a low click

10:55:56 Quit ashridah ("gm's dead, need phone :(")
10:56:24markunamiconn: The big plop is when there was a dc offset when you turned off the player. The offset is back again when you turn the unit on..
10:57:09amiconnI don't expect a dc offset in the dac to survive a poweroff...
10:58:07markunamiconn: it's strange. But after playing some silence and you power off you don't get the second click. If you play some loud sample and you power off and back on the tick is there..
10:58:53amiconnEven if the poweroff time is more than a couple of minutes???
10:59:06markunIs the player in a standby mode when you power it of?

11:58:07Matt-UKi love the progress of this firmware, but shame no one has taken the MP3 player i have as a project for rockbox
11:58:28markunwhich one?
11:58:37Matt-UKCowon iAudio M3
11:58:46Matt-UKamazing MP3 player i've had for almost a year
11:58:57markunI believe it uses the same cpu as the iriver
11:59:31Matt-UKthe firmware is out there to take a look inside for the M3, but why isnt anyone devicing custom firmware for the M3?
11:59:44markunIf you are willing to open it up and make pictures of the hardware it would help
11:59:59Matt-UKthere are many pictures already taken
12:00:03Matt-UKlet me try and find the page
12:00:46markunok, that's good then. All the components need to be indentified and then find the datasheets.
12:02:11markunMatt-UK: if you like you can start a wiki page on the rockbox site about the M3 harware.
12:02:42Matt-UKwell, here's a start with the processor it uses
12:03:27Matt-UKsame as the iriver as you apparently
12:04:54linuxstbIf it was me, I would first try to understand how the firmware update process works - if you can't install your own firmware, I'm not sure it's worth proceeding.
12:05:51Matt-UKi can explain, the file gets placed onto the hard-drive in its own folder. then the next oppertunity you turn it on with the power lead in, it boots up an update screen on the remote and goes through the process
12:06:34 Join hicks [0] (~hicks@c975355903b3d9ad.session.tor)
12:10:14linuxstbIt sounds similar to the iRiver then - new firmware gets flashed before it can be run. Do you know if the firmware update file is encrypted?
12:11:14Matt-UKthats the webpage with an opened up M3
12:11:25linuxstbA quick question - is this MP3 player still available to buy? The big problem with iRiver H120/H140 is that it's discontinued.
12:11:41Matt-UKit is available to buy still

12:22:50Matt-UKbecause they have now put them all in installation files
12:23:38tucozhere is a zip:
12:24:08Matt-UKah yes
12:24:12Matt-UKi tryied to find that link
12:24:19Matt-UKso do u think its possible?
12:25:25linuxstbAssuming all the chips have public documentation, then yes. If not, then it's probably still yes, but would require more reverse-engineering of the original firmware.
12:27:01linuxstbAt least one developer would need to install something like a BDM device to be able to recover from flashing a bad firmware. LinusN did that with the iRiver.
12:29:01tucozlinuxstb: Do you have a disassembler for the coldfire?
12:29:59linuxstbIf you followed the Rockbox approach for the iRiver, you would patch an existing official firmware to include a bootloader. This is the only dangerous part - Rockbox itself would be stored on disk and loaded to RAM before running. You would always have the original firmware to fall back on.
12:30:56Matt-UKlinuxstb: Just be aware that there is BBE in the M3, which is a copyrighted DSP for audio
12:31:05linuxstbNo, I don't have a disassembler, but I'm sure others do. I seem to recall someone mentioning that objdump can do it - check the IRC logs for last week.
12:31:36tucozlinuxstb: true, forgot about that. I tried that last week on some rockbox code.
12:32:59 Part tucoz
12:33:05linuxstbI know nothing about DSPs (you need to come back when the low-level guys are here). But if the Coldfire runs at the same speed as the iRiver, then you can live without the DSP. Assuming you can bypass it to access the DAC>
12:33:53linuxstbAll I know is that the first thing the hardware people do is to draw schematics based on high-res scans/photos of the PCBs.

12:39:38linuxstbI see the M3 firmware contains libFLAC 1.1.0 ... What's the FLAC performance like on the M3?
12:39:54preglowa couple of funny things, though
12:39:58preglowi can see no ram or codec chip
12:40:19linuxstbIs it possible that there's no RAM?
12:40:48preglowmost definitely no
12:40:57preglowa player with its disk on all the time wouldn't run for very long
12:41:10linuxstbI didn't expect so. But you made me wonder...
12:41:23preglowthere's one chip i can't make out
12:41:30preglowplaced directly underneath the coldfire

12:46:15Matt-UKhi again guys
12:46:18Matt-UKFLAC is not bad
12:46:26Matt-UKbut the M3 only officially supports 0, 1 and 2
12:47:11Matt-UKbut the performance decreases if BBE DSP is on
12:48:06preglowbbe dsp?
12:48:09preglowwhat the hell is that?
12:48:36Matt-UKits the thing that enchances the sound

13:34:27Nuxatorrepeat and you'll finish to have a codec failure
13:34:34Slasheriyou should cd to somewhere else before umounting

14:20:00linuxstbI don't think anyone is against the idea of a port to the M3, it's just that we are all still busy on the iRiver models.
14:20:28Matt-UKshame i have no developing or programming skills, lol. i would of been in there already
14:20:41BgerMatt-UK : the same CPU means more easy porting ...
14:20:43linuxstbIf you want to try and start some momentum, create a Wiki page with as much hardware information as you can find. Include hi-res photos, lists of chipes, datasheets etc.
14:21:10Matt-UKwhen i get time, i will do
14:21:19BgerMatt-UK yep, that would be the start point
14:21:44linuxstbThere's a lot of leg-work you can do. It obviously won't guarantee that a developer will start work on it, but it would help - especially if it turns out to be very similar to the iRiver.
14:22:40Matt-UKthere's quite a few M3 users that would like to see this development
14:23:32linuxstbHopefully there's one with the ability to actually start the low-level work. The Rockbox application itself should more or less work "as is" on the M3 - once the low-level stuff is written.
14:23:55Matt-UKi mean, the only difficulty is the screen
14:24:05Shagnardo you have a link to the m3 ?
14:24:14Matt-UKjus the normal product page?
14:24:21linuxstbRockbox has a Voice UI (but not yet on the iRiver) - so in theory you can use it without a screen.

14:27:34Matt-UKits been very quiet in its publicity and promotion in europe and america
14:27:39linuxstbRockbox on the iRiver (I can't call it iRockbox...) has a different audio sub-system than the Archos devices. The Voice UI functions aren't implemented yet.

14:47:48Bgerfor me it means buggy firmware ...
14:48:20Matt-UKwell, there are some problems, but most of the time, they added more features rather than bug fixes
14:48:39Bgerwell, this is good
14:49:38linuxstbThat's less motivation for a Rockbox port though. The iRiver firmware is _so_ bad, it's just not usable (for me).
14:49:59Matt-UKbut i mean, its nice to have an alternative
14:50:34Matt-UKall would love to experiment with rockbox
14:50:59linuxstbI agree, but you have to weigh up the amount of work involved with how much better Rockbox is compared to the existing firmware.
14:51:23Matt-UKwell, i don't know wether Cowon will develop many more firmware updates for the M3
14:51:53Matt-UKits slowed right down since they've got the X5 in their hands now
14:52:56linuxstbThe biggest problem (for me) with the iRiver hardware is the lack of hardware 48KHz support - we have to resample exerything to 44.1KHz. But you probably can't tell if that's the case with the M3.
14:53:20Bgerlinuxstb this is a problem with coldfire
14:53:40Bgeri'm almost sure that it's there in M3 also
14:54:08Matt-UKi'm sure the M3 supports 48Khz
14:54:13 Join edx [0] (
14:54:30BgerMatt-UK : are you sure that it *outputs* 48KHz sound ?
14:54:31linuxstbBut can you say that it definitely doesn't do software resampling?
14:55:22BgeriRiver fw also *supports* 48kHz, but these files are downsampled to 44.1kHz
14:55:24Matt-UKif it did that, it would slow right down needing more processing power
14:55:25 Quit ehntoo (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
14:56:02Bgerpreglow's investigations showed that downsampling from 48kHz to 44.1kHz doesn't need so much power
14:56:06linuxstbNot necessarily - resampling can be done very quickly. It's a compromise between speed and quality.
14:56:25Bgerhe did it with linear interpolation and it sounded very good
14:57:10linuxstbBut I don't think 48KHz is a big issue for most people - I just have a large number of digital radio recordings (MP2 at 48KHz).
14:57:59Matt-UKhaving 48Khz for me isnt essential
14:58:06Bger hahaha :)
14:59:02Matt-UKthe lovely forum i'm part of :P
15:00:25BgerI read in some post that M3 processor and the X5 one are the same, i havent any more information about.
15:00:34Bgerone more coldfire beast :)))
15:01:12Matt-UKwell, you'll have more to play around with the X5 :P
15:01:35linuxstbIf there was a coldfire-based player that wasn't "end-of-life" (like the H120/H140 was when the port started), then I think lots of people would be very keen.
15:01:56Bgerlinuxstb the X5 is in the beginning :)
15:02:02Bgerof his "life"
15:02:06linuxstbI'm sure once Rockbox is working 100% on the iRiver, all the existing Archos users will want to upgrade - but they can't buy H120/H140s any more.
15:02:57bipak_hmm in germany you can
15:03:49linuxstbIf you know a source of H120s/H140s, then you can probably become rich by selling them with Rockbox installed.
15:03:53Bgerlinuxstb they can buy H320/340
15:04:06Bgeras i did:)
15:04:31linuxstbAre they still making the H320/340?
15:05:30Bgerlinuxstb i was frightened at the end of january that H3x0 is out of production ...
15:05:51Bger <= this is the site i bought it from
15:05:52bipak_Bger: are they doing anything new?
15:05:55Matt-UKdoing a 48khz Wav test, it seems to play fine on my M3
15:06:52linuxstbMatt-UK: Are you able to record the output? A frequency analysis of the original and the recorded versions could identify any resampling.
15:07:10Bgerthey are still selling new H3x0s
15:07:21Matt-UKthis is a transcoded 44.1Khz file, but would that make any difference?
15:07:32Bgerso i'm almost sure that iriver are producing them have H320s "lite" models in stock. So yes, they do seem to be available still.
15:08:39Bgerlinuxstb H1x0s have been stopped when iriver started making H3x0
15:08:54Bgerbut ... H10 series are not the next H3x0s ....
15:08:58Bgerthey are very different
15:08:58Matt-UKlinuxstb: I transcoded a 44.1Khz file to 48Khz, would that make any difference in analysis?
15:09:24Bgerso i don't think that iriver are planning to replace H3x0 with H10
15:10:02linuxstbMatt-UK: I think it would be better to have a clean 48KHz file. But I'm only guessing that this would be able to prove anything - you would need someone experienced in that sort of thing to look at the files. Maybe raise the issue on the iAudio forums.
15:10:52linuxstbIf you have any music DVDs, there is a good chance they will have 48KHz uncompressed LPCM audio on them. Or at the very least, 48KHz AC3.
15:11:54Matt-UKshould have somewhere
15:13:20linuxstbBut maybe just generating a sine wave would be more useful (someone who knows what I am trying to talk about, please jump in...)

15:21:54preglowyou're going to be hard pressed to find out if it's resampling if you can't grab the pure output

15:23:31Matt-UKpreglow: the M3 doesnt have any opt out, but the coldfire supports it
15:23:33preglowi don't see why this is worth worrying about anywa
15:23:37linuxstbpreglow: I was hoping you would drop by...
15:25:08linuxstbWhen looking at a frequency analysis of a 48KHz file, and then a 44.1KHz conversion, I've noticed that the peaks move slightly. Does that make any sense?
15:26:04preglowdepends on what you mean
15:26:22preglowthe peaks might move across the scale because the scale is still the same size, but the top frequencies are gone
15:26:31preglowhowever, the peaks should by no means have relocated in frequency
15:26:54linuxstbI know it's not important, but I'm curious to know if it's possible to test if the M3 is resampling.
15:28:02preglowwell, yeah, but you'd need a fancy signal and a good way of getting the signal
15:28:24preglowand when you have to record through an analogue output, there is so much filtering done, it gets hard to tell
15:30:29preglowbut yeah, you need a relatively flat signal
15:30:44preglowif there's resampling done, you should detect a rolloff in the higher frequences
15:31:01preglowbut that might be there anyway, with poor anti-aliasing filters in the dac and adcs
15:31:38preglowif they do non-compansated linear interpolation, you might also see a slight gain change
15:35:15linuxstbWell, maybe Linus could tell us if it's possible for the M3 to not resample. I don't know how specific the problem was to the iRiver design.
15:36:43preglowi2s module not being capable of the right clock frequencies, i think
15:36:50preglowso it's very probably a no-go for iaudio as well

15:51:26webguest11if you want, I can do an endurence test of mp3 -lame-aps, 1900mah batt
15:51:57preglowBger: by no means
15:52:36Matt-UKpreglow and linuxstb: Looks like the Official Cowon site states the M3 can only support 11Khz, 22Khz or 44.1Khz
15:53:00linuxstbThat sounds like the hardware limitations in the iRiver.
15:53:05Bgerpreglow: we *are* sure it doesn't falls or we *aren't*
15:53:10Matt-UKeven though it plays 48Khz
15:53:34linuxstbI'm guesing that must have been via a firmware update - using software resampling.
15:53:49preglowBger: like i said, we're by no means sure of it
15:54:10preglowBger: the voltage readings don't work
15:54:18preglowBger: that is, they work, but they aren't accurate
15:54:23Bgeryep :)
15:55:00linuxstbMatt-UK: But as preglow said, it's not really a big issue.
15:55:31linuxstbSoftware resampling will be good enough for all but the most demanding listeners (which I am not).
15:55:39Matt-UKlinuxstb: very true. the new X5s spec's show it can support 48Khz
15:55:53Bgerpreglow then i don't think that any of these run-time tests are usable atm

16:10:19Matt-UKlinuxstb: If it has the same chipset
16:10:40linuxstbBecause the programmers didn't spend as much time optimising as we (preglow!) did.
16:10:56linuxstbOr the rest of the firmware is too cpu-intensive.
16:11:00BgerSlasheri : see open()
16:11:24Matt-UKlinuxstb: So do you think the M3 should be a possible rockbox project?
16:11:39preglowit struggles with high bitrate oggs?
16:11:50linuxstbMy opinion doesn't matter - you need to convince someone who can do the work.
16:12:23preglowMatt-UK: like i said, of course it's a possible project, it sharing the h1x0 cpu certainly makes it easier than other players as well
16:12:25Matt-UKpreglow: With the DSPs on (BBE, MP Enhance etc), the OS slows down
16:12:52Matt-UKpreglow: especially when navigating songs
16:12:54preglowMatt-UK: but you need to find out the hardware details, you need to find out how we can inject a bootloader into a firmware, and you need someone to get a player and a bdm interface
16:13:03preglowMatt-UK: if you personally can't do these, you need to find someone interested
16:13:15preglowmost of us here now are busy with h1x0
16:13:23Matt-UKpreglow: thats no problem
16:13:34preglowand i wont be buying another player that does what my h120 already does
16:13:42preglowso you should ask around in forums

16:14:14Matt-UKashridah: yes
16:14:25Matt-UKashridah: But only officially supports modes 0, 1 and 2
16:14:28preglowBger: sure enough, but i've still got my hands full with h1x0 work for a long time to come, heh
16:14:44Bgerheh, i know :)
16:14:57preglowbut that work will also benefit iaudio players
16:14:59ashridahMatt-UK: ah
16:15:02linuxstbBut almost all the work we are all doing on the H1x0 will be useful for the M3. So they are not unrelated.
16:15:04Shagnarwhich flag compression modes are the best to use it with rockbox ?
16:15:05Bgerpreglow: definitely
16:15:18*ashridah didn't know flac had modes
16:15:32Bgerashridah: it has ... -1 : -8
16:15:35linuxstbI just use "flac -8" and that seems to work fine.
16:16:09preglowworks fine, but is a bit heavier to decode
16:16:12ashridahBger: ah, quality levels you mean?
16:16:26linuxstbThere is only one quality level with FLAC - perfect.
16:17:12Bgerashridah: what quality with loseLESS codec ?
16:17:13Matt-UKlinuxstb: as its a lossless codec :D
16:17:32Bgerthese are compresion "best good fast" etc
16:17:43Matt-UKlinuxstb: the modes on FLAC are compression modes
16:19:03preglowoh well
16:19:09preglowrockbox should be able to handle all modes
16:19:11preglowit already does, afaik
16:19:16preglowand flac is severly unoptimised

16:29:37Matt-UKAnyone tried out the OptimFROG codec before?
16:29:52zeShagnar: "normal" mp3s? as opposed to what other kind of mp3s?
16:30:06zeShagnar: of course a lossless compression'll sound better than any lossy codec
16:30:26Shagnarno, juts wanted to say "normal" like "what is normally used"
16:30:47Matt-UKShagnar: As in the usual 128Kbps Joint-Stereo MP3? lol
16:30:47Shagnaryes, thats right.. but i didn't think this difference is so huge
16:30:58ShagnarMatt-UK -___-
16:31:01SlasheriInteresting. I disconnected usb cable (while in bootloader usb mode) and got: ATA error: -11 and *PANIC* ata: -11. I remember i have got that message at least once before. However, reset worked (and it booted to iriver firmware). Then power off and rockbox boots again normally
16:31:11zewell it depends on the bitrate of the lossy-encoded files

16:33:13zelame's generally considered to be better anymore
16:33:19zethough it does depend on what method you use
16:33:25zethere's some controvercy surrounding that
16:33:37zei guess fraunhoffer's still better for 128kbps cbr
16:33:42zebut that sucks anyway
16:33:52zeits my understanding that lame's got it beat for higher-bitrate vbr
16:34:01zei tend to use −−alt-preset standard
16:34:17Matt-UKZe: I've done alot of live streaming and testing with shoutcast etc. Fraunhoffer always offered the better sound

16:36:08zeMatt-UK: why?
16:36:16Matt-UKZe: To my ears, its no different than VBR
16:36:26preglowthen i suggest you use vbr, it's smaller
16:36:46zethe difference is just that cbr wastes space for the same sound
16:36:58Matt-UKZe: I know you get better filesizes with VBR, but I want to keep quality all the way through :P
16:37:33Shagnarnow its buggy
16:37:37zewell the problem with that logic
16:37:42niobosMatt-UK: you should realy take a look at the file with MPEG eyes... some parts are just "this-is-some-filling-because-i-need-to"
16:37:53zeis that the other advantage to vbr is that it doesn't waste bits on stuff that doesn't need it thereby robbing them from stuff that does
16:37:57zewhich is what happens with cbr
16:38:03 Quit xen` (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
16:38:09zeso you're better off using vbr to keep quality all the way through

16:38:35Matt-UKZe: I'll give it a go from now on, but i'm not prepared to re-encode 50 CDs worth again, lol
16:39:04zeyeah if i were to, it'd be a gradual process, if at all
16:39:13zeif you like them fine as they are there's no reason to
16:39:13amiconnMatt-UK: In order to get somewhat equal quality across all tracks, you'd rather *have to* use vbr
16:39:21zethough i've noticed that since i've started using better quality encoding
16:39:37zei've been hearing the difference vs my older encodings and have been motivated to reencode them as i do notice
16:39:41Matt-UKZe: I may try Fraunhoffer with VBR
16:39:51zeif you wish
16:40:02zebut again, fraunhoffer's specifically optimized for the 128kbps range cbr
16:40:05amiconnOn one hand, cbr wastes bits is simple passages, on the other hand it degrades quality for compplex passages

16:42:16Matt-UKamiconn: I hardly use lower bitrates for archiving my music

16:43:58niobosashridah: instead to code Left and Right, you code the average and the difference
16:43:59amiconnFor realtime encoders, this doesn't hold true
16:44:21preglowashridah: if there's little difference between channels, the side signal will contain very little information, so more can be used on mid channel
16:44:24Matt-UKpreglow: With my majority of rock music that has alot of Stereo elements, it just sounds flatter
16:44:37zei didn't know there were any non-realtime encoders in the era of the gigahertz
16:44:53ashridahah, right
16:45:14amiconnE.g. if you set the js bit on the MAS, all frames are encoded js, and as plain stereo if not
16:45:28preglowi don't believe that's a fixed rule
16:45:41preglowthe mas doesn't exactly have a lot of cycles to spend doing anything but the most necessary
16:45:43Matt-UKI just don't bother with JS where possible, lol
16:46:06niobosMatt-UK: do you listen to FM radio sometimes?
16:46:07amiconnMatt-UK: If js sounds flatter, then either the quality you selected is too low (cbr ?!), or your encoder is crap
16:46:07ashridahze: when was the last time you encoded 7-channel audio + hdtv video? :)
16:46:23Matt-UKniobos, i do sometimes
16:46:28webguest11lame switches are optimised for js
16:46:29niobosFM is in JS...
16:46:39amiconnze: lame is a non-realtime encoder
16:46:46zeashridah: mp3 supports 7-channel audio?
16:47:03Matt-UKniobos: I prefer CD Stereo rather than Radio
16:47:03amiconnThis has nothing to do with the fact that it actually runs faster than realtime on today's pcs
16:47:06zeamiconn: in a technical sense? cause i've gotten better than realtime on it since my k6-2/400

16:47:16zeamiconn: ok

16:47:24 Quit mattz (Client Quit)
16:47:26crashdhey guys
16:47:58ashridahze: well, okay, specifically for mp3, no :)
16:48:59ashridahze: i believe their point is that the encoder won't sacrifice quality in order to keep up if things get bogged down
16:49:16ashridah(besides, you could be encoding multiple streams at once, for say, a distribution server for a bunch of online radio stations)
16:49:24zeashridah: ah yeah
16:49:27*niobos is off... back to the books... exam on thu
16:49:32zeashridah: makes sense
16:49:33webguest11if i install todays daily build, will it have the popless track changes
16:49:49preglowmore or less, yes
16:49:51preglownot todays
16:49:55preglowyou need the bleeding edge build
16:50:21*webguest11 sighs
16:50:37linuxstbIMO, you should always be using bleeding edge builds.
16:51:11Matt-UKAny of you guys think MP3 will die on its arse one day?

16:53:22preglowmp3 wont die for a good while
16:53:28crashdMatt-UK: but
16:53:31crashdmp3 is a standard
16:53:36crashdso it aint going anywhere anytime soon
16:53:39preglowvorbis kicks mp3s as pretty thoroughly
16:53:41preglowso does aac
16:53:45 Join DMJC [0] (
16:53:46Matt-UKfor the average joe, its become a standard
16:53:54crashdthat's what a standard is Matt
16:54:18Matt-UKnot many average joes know technical stuff about computers, let alone turning one on!
16:54:52Matt-UKbut thats probably where it will all change when the older generations die out ;)
16:55:15ashridahmp3 may be forced out of existence, but sadly, it'll be by DRM-based media, i'm betting :(
16:55:36Matt-UKWMA won't get too much further
16:56:09Matt-UKthey're on their 10th attempt already with WMA10, lol
16:56:34bipak_ashridah: why should they use DRM based media? cause longhorn wont play anything else? *g*
16:56:48ashridahit may not necessarily be wma
16:56:55Matt-UKvery true
16:56:56niobosThe sad thing about the DRM and copy-protection is: they try so hard to protect it that it won't even play anymore on "older" hardware
16:57:24ashridahif anything, it'll be the media companies that force the issue. if they make an intelligent choice and ditch cds alltogether, and make us get drm crap online, it'll be far easier for them to force the issue.
16:57:35niobosSo I found the only way to play my new (bought!) CD in the car is to rip it...
16:57:59ashridah(intelligent for them, not good for us)
16:58:02Matt-UKniobos: why thats happened because organisations like RIAA were stuck in a big black hole not taking the oppertunity to use MP3, the pirates got there first
16:58:34ashridahi just rarely buy cds anymore
16:58:34ashridahworks for me
16:58:35Matt-UKniobos: and P2P apps like napster that started the trend
16:58:52Matt-UKashridah: you a student or at school/college?
16:59:10Matt-UKi love buying CDs, but maybe thats because i have a passion for music
16:59:21preglowi try to buy all my music myself
16:59:26niobosP things... (according to the column) the polulartiy of Napster skyrocketed after the thing came in court
16:59:28preglowi can't stand just having it be files
16:59:32preglowfiles suck and get lost quickly
16:59:42*bipak_ buys vinyl records and hears only to DJ Sets :)
16:59:44ashridahstudent, currently.
17:00:02ashridahbut i'm not at a college, since those rarely exist here.
17:00:03preglowi'm listening to vinyl as we speak
17:00:04Matt-UKashridah: well, when you get money, you'll want to archive music
17:00:06preglownow there's a good format
17:00:19Matt-UKhard-drive based storage is not reliable enough to archive music
17:00:36crashdthe problem is that CD's are too expensive still, at proper retail
17:00:40Matt-UKI've lost my music too many times
17:00:45crashdthe artists dont get the right percent cut
17:00:53crashdso all you're doing is funding massive multinationals
17:00:54ashridahMatt-UK: i already do archive music.
17:00:55crashdnot the music makers
17:01:02Matt-UKcrashd: I can get CDs here in the UK for half or 3/4's their RRP
17:01:09crashdMatt-UK: so can i
17:01:12ashridahhahahaha. cds. reliable. ahhaha. hahahahah. HASHAHA
17:01:12ashridahdude, that's hilarious. look up the degradation rate of cds sometime :)
17:01:12crashdbut the point isnt that
17:01:23crashdand cd's degrade, as ashridah points out l;0
17:01:26crashdso what to do ?
17:01:30*ashridah notes he has, currently, 3 separate, synced, copies of all of his music
17:01:41Matt-UKHDs go much quicker
17:01:50preglowashridah: now there's why i prefer vinyl!!
17:02:00niobos synced copies and offline portable HDD backup (out of sync by a week or so)
17:02:05preglowyou have to play those to degrade them, heh
17:02:06crashdH10 jr supports ogg
17:02:10crashdbut the h10 normal doesnt
17:02:13Matt-UK"The CD-R media manufacturers have performed extensive media longevity studies using these industry-defined tests and mathematical modeling techniques, with results claiming longevity from 70 years to over 200 years."
17:02:19preglowcrashd: then it probably doesn't run arm?
17:02:22ashridahand that's the way it's generally staying (music server, main pc (where new stuff goes), and my mp3 player
17:02:24Matt-UKCDs still outlive Hard-Drives :P

17:02:52zehaha 70 years?
17:03:09crashdcd-r's degrade in a matter of months if they arent stored in a cold, dark place
17:03:12zeor ya know 5 years till the silver's flaking off the label side and they're totally ruined
17:03:15ashridahman. i'll be about ready to marry rockbox when someone gets tone control working :)
17:03:15preglowashridah: if you actually manage to have your vinyl MELTING, you're incompetent and need to be put in

17:03:40crashdnot much use, for sure
17:03:45crashdbut still they work fine
17:03:46zehd's haven't been around for 70 years though
17:03:49zeand neither have cd's
17:04:02zejust because some model predicts they'll last that long doesn't mean anything
17:04:08ashridahpreglow: yeah, well, come and experience our summers sometime ;)
17:04:13thegeekwhy assume that the storage medium has to be constant
17:04:20niobosI don't mind... in about 10 years I'll say to my friends; Blu-ray, what was that?
17:04:21thegeekI keep my music on two separate hd's
17:04:24thegeekin two different machines
17:04:30thegeeknever lost anything

17:05:11thegeekit's not unsafe to keep it on a hd
17:05:14preglowsomeone bug him
17:05:25Matt-UKthegeek: for me it is, lol
17:05:26thegeekif you just always keep a backup
17:05:29thegeekoh well
17:05:31thegeekI mean
17:05:37ashridahholy sweet bejesus i'm lagged :/
17:05:38thegeekyour house could always burn
17:05:43thegeekor someone could steal your cd's
17:05:47thegeekthat happens a lot actually
17:05:53zeyeah really the only way to ensure long-term data integrity
17:06:06thegeekwith a hd your data wont degrade
17:06:07zeis to always transfer onto a newer data storage device before the old one dies
17:06:12ashridahheh. fair enough
17:06:28preglowi quite simply just dont like tying my music to my pc
17:06:29Matt-UKze: but you never know when the older storage medium is going to die
17:06:44zeMatt-UK: yeah
17:06:47Matt-UKze: before you get the new one
17:06:47ashridahanyway, i've got to hit the sack. got stuff to organise tomorrow.
17:06:51zeMatt-UK: so always have it on a few different ones
17:07:05thegeekwhere do you live ashridah?
17:07:23ashridahMatt-UK: actually, predictive failure gear in high end equipment is very good
17:07:23ashridahand RAID can guard against sudden death
17:07:58ashridahthegeek: too fricking far away from everything :(
17:07:58ashridahit's 1am here, and bloody cold
17:08:09niobosRAID helps to protect, but won't give 100% guarantee... if both disks fail simultaniously...
17:08:17Matt-UKi do have a SCSI external RAID device :P
17:08:30niobosand I'm not making this up, I've seen 2 RAID-1 disks fail in an interval of 7 minutes...
17:08:40thegeekthat had to be a surge
17:08:41niobosNOT fun
17:08:42Matt-UKand RAID-5 is what you need
17:08:50 Quit ashridah ("sleep.")
17:08:56niobosespecialy if that RAID-1 is the system-drive of a major mail-server...
17:09:04Matt-UKover the space of 5 disks
17:09:09Matt-UKyou won't ever lose your data :P
17:09:28niobosMatt-UK: any RAID-?? will fail if more than x drives fail simultaniously
17:09:44niobosyou can't beat Murphy...
17:09:44Matt-UKnope, if one goes, you replace it, and voila
17:09:50niobosas I said:
17:09:58niobosI've seen 2 drives fail in 7 minute interval...
17:09:59Matt-UK2 goes, possible chance of recovery
17:10:27niobosRAID-5 over 5 drives will just REDUCE the chance of data-loss; but won't make it 0
17:10:28Matt-UKniobos: if you've seen that, what makes them more reliable than CDs?
17:10:38thegeekthat is an extreme example niobos
17:10:42niobosI know
17:10:57thegeekthe chance of two physically separate hd's failing in that short a time is very low
17:11:03thegeekif you keep the hd's in two diff machines
17:11:09thegeekand have surge protectors on both
17:11:09niobosMy point is: RAID and backup's only REDUCE the chance of data-loss, they don't bring itdown to 0
17:11:19thegeeknothing does;)
17:11:20thegeekand I agree
17:11:26thegeekraid is not that great
17:11:36thegeekbetter to keep two hd's in two different machines
17:11:39Matt-UKRAID is better than nothing
17:11:42niobosthegeek: my setup is exactly that: 2 machines rsyncing over changes
17:11:49thegeekme too;)
17:12:08thegeekthought I don't bother with rsyncing
17:12:12niobospoint is that the "backup" lags a day (could reduce that, but it'll always lag)
17:12:26*preglow is happy he doesn't have to deal with backing up :P
17:12:54niobospreglow: you just pray???
17:12:57preglowi ahtes it, i does
17:13:08preglowniobos: well, no, like i say, i've got all the music i care about on cds and vinyl as well
17:13:17preglowbecause i buy it
17:13:27Matt-UKpreglow: same here
17:14:08preglowi like having my music on a medium separate from my pc, and a lot of the artists i listen to aren't that big, so i like knowing i support them at least a bit
17:14:50linuxstbBut if you have any rare or hard-to-replace CDs, then just make copies for all your friends.
17:15:06*bipak_ backups his sourcecodes now
17:15:27bipak_on a good old floppy :p
17:15:34*niobos trusts on crontab to do that backup...

17:22:58linuxstbThere's no extra testing for the daily builds.
17:23:20webguest11there's nothing wrong with bleeding edge, just that it seems that you need cvs to install the stuff

17:27:18webguest11jesus, its that simple, I searched high but obviously not low enough for that, thanks
17:38:25***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
17:43:32niobos_studyI'm wondering: does Rockbox read ID3-tags? or does it just get the info out of it's db?
17:43:40niobos_studyin the first case: what file does the parsing?
17:44:02niobos_study(ID3 or FLAC or OGG or ...)
17:44:50amiconnrockbox reads the tags itself
17:45:06t0masis there a difference between these 2:
17:45:07t0masinline signed short int synthVoice()
17:45:08amiconnThe database is a recent addition, and is cvompletely optional
17:45:10t0masor inline signed short int synthVoice(void)
17:45:42t0mas(asking because I don't know the inline stuff)
17:45:44amiconnniobos_study: ...which is imho A Good Thing
17:45:50niobos_studyamiconn: and what .c file does the parsing now?
17:46:05niobos_studyso I don't have to rewrite that thing for the songdb
17:46:30niobos_studyamiconn: definitely A Good Thing!
17:47:45linuxstbniobos_study: This is still under development. I think it's the mp3data.c and/or id3.c files that are reading the tags from MP3 files.
17:48:12linuxstbAt the moment, nothing apart from basic information such as length, bitrate, samplerate etc are being read from the other formats.
17:48:56niobos_studylinuxstb: firmware/id3.c? is that him?
17:50:13linuxstbniobos_study: Yes.
17:50:35linuxstbThat's the code that's used on the Archos players - so it's very well tested.
17:50:54amiconnt0mas: Both declarations should be identical, however, explicitly stating 'void' is more clear
17:51:22amiconnlinuxstb: id3 parsing is there since a looong time
17:51:22t0masamiconn: yes, if you don't do it gcc gives a warning
17:51:37t0masamiconn: but... when I add void I get an error
17:51:39linuxstbamiconn: Yes, I know.
17:51:56t0masamiconn: too many arguments
17:51:59amiconnParsing other formats like apev2, vorbis comments etc is new stuff
17:52:17linuxstbSo new it hasn't even been started.
17:52:23t0masbut a function like this: "inline signed short int synthVoice()" shouldn't take any parameters right?
17:52:37amiconnt0mas: The inline has nothing to do with that, but the declaration must always match the definition
17:52:56t0masthen someone wrote a bug in the midi code
17:53:18amiconnDoesn't surprise me
17:53:18t0masit's declared there as: inline signed short int synthVoice()
17:53:23t0masand called on line 390 with: sample = synthVoice(currentVoice);
17:53:28t0maswich is impossible
17:53:35t0masand when I change the declaration to void
17:53:40t0masit ofcourse gives an error
17:53:48t0masbefore that.. gcc doesn't notice
17:53:51pabsfoo() means any number of parameters
17:54:03pabsin ANSI C, that is
17:54:10t0mashm... but you can't use them right?
17:54:16amiconnSo the declaration is clearly wrong
17:54:36t0masbut I should first fix the error... before fixing the declaration
17:54:41pabsit should be declared foo(void) if it doesn't take any parameters
17:54:45amiconncurrentVoice is an int?
17:54:56amiconn(apart from not matching rockbox style)
17:55:15t0masI'll check
17:55:20t0masit's global anyway...
17:55:32t0masint currentVoice IDATA_ATTR;
17:55:38t0mas(global scope)
17:56:13t0masman... that file is a mess... it's declared half way through the file...
17:57:52t0mashm... it compiles when I remove the argument from the call... and make it a function(void)
17:58:09t0masand it's still using that currentVoice (it's global)
17:58:35t0masso I guess that kills the warning... and doesn't break midi
18:01:15 Quit Shagnar (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
18:02:28t0masamiconn: sorry to keep bugging you... but a signed, unsigned compare... that's wrong.. and gives a warning... can I fix the warning with casting the unsigned to signed? (can give overflow trouble?)
18:02:44t0masbut that overflow values will give problems now too...
18:03:16t0masand it would make the iriver build warning free :)
18:03:30linuxstbt0mas: That's inside libmusepack, so I think it's worth looking at it properly, and maybe changing the types of some of the variables.
18:04:07linuxstbI remember needing to do similar cleaning to libFLAC shortly after I committed it.
18:04:25linuxstbBut yes, it would be nice to remove those final warnings.
18:04:26t0masyes, I wanted to clean that
18:04:39t0masbut I'm not sure if it's a right way to just cast them..
18:05:23t0maschanging the function declaration fixes all those errors... ofcourse... but I think it was unsigned for a reason :)

18:23:40yngwibut of course i'd like to help with the "real" work, that needs to be done, but wouldn't i need some audio knowledge too??
18:28:28t0masI don't have any ;)
18:28:56t0masI've just done some work on graphics... the wps... and the remote...
18:30:06t0masbut what are your plugin ideas? maybe I can write parts of them for you? Then add a lot of comments... so you learn from that code? (not a really good way to learn it... as I'm not the best coder you'll meet.. but it's a start)
18:31:26yngwifor example, would you think, a notepad of some kind would be impossible?

19:00:28t0masyngwi: smart input was on my list too
19:00:41t0masbut I remember a GNU thing... for disabled people...
19:00:51t0masusable with just an up and down button...
19:03:53yngwiwhat do you mean?
19:04:25t0masit was some smart input system
19:05:38yngwioh, with rockbox, you need only the "joystick", but you could change that so that you only need up and down, or do i get you wrong?
19:07:12markunThere are also keyboard layouts that might be more efficient:
19:07:14t0masbut you don't want to scroll the whole alphabet... everytime you want to type a char
19:07:17 Part mawe
19:07:40t0masso the gnu thing (forgot the name) had a smart sorting thing...
19:07:45t0masto select needed characters first
19:09:02yngwithis is a interesting idea, to use an algorithm not only for the T9 thing, but also, which character comes next....
19:09:47yngwii'd never thought of that
19:10:58t0masme neither

19:54:08t0masI have it somewhere... but it's like windows always is.. not really working :P

19:55:22t0mashm.. I don't use that database
19:55:28t0masbut there was a tool for it...

19:57:32t0masdon't know... I have it sorted like this because I didn't like the iriver database thing

20:58:36t0masok, 1 warning left :)
20:58:46t0masfor simulator
20:58:51t0masiriver build is now warning free :D
20:59:07t0masamiconn? printf() in simulator... what header should I include?
20:59:30t0masnot stdio.h I guess?
20:59:50amiconnWhy do you want printf() ?
21:00:02Slashericrwl: now it is fixed :)
21:00:29amiconnThere is no printf() in rockbox
21:01:00t0masamiconn: simulator uses printf()
21:01:11t0masand it causes a warning... because it's not in any header
21:01:45amiconnYes... because rockbox doesn't have printf(), even not the simulators
21:02:04amiconnIt is 'macroed' out for the target builds iirc
21:02:13amiconn(for the codecs)
21:02:30amiconnI wonder what codecs to have to print at all, they're low level stuff...
21:02:36t0mas#ifdef SIMULATOR
21:02:36t0masif (log) printf("%c%02X", (effect<10)?('0'+effect):('A'+effect-10), value);
21:02:49t0masshall I change that to DEBUGF()
21:02:57t0masthat should have the same effect on simulator?
21:02:58amiconnYes I think so
21:03:09amiconnLooks like it's debugging output
21:03:38amiconnDEBUGF() does output to the console in the simulators
21:04:30amiconnThe #ifdef SIMULATOR surrounding it looks like it can go away
21:05:07amiconnOn target, DEBUGF() is an empty macros unless you're building a debug build
21:05:16amiconn(only possible for archos so far)
21:05:28t0masbut iriver builds are warning free now :D
21:05:43t0mas(unless my commit caused a new warning... but I don't think it did)
21:06:10t0masamiconn: the define's can't be removed
21:06:15t0masas the log var is simulator only
21:06:15amiconngmini builds are not... but these are different warnings, mostly because it's a 16bit arch
21:06:52t0masI can change that too... but I think the writer of the dumb thing can better do that kind of things
21:06:56amiconn3 gmini warnings are caused by me :-/ but I don't dare to touch the scheduler code with no one around to test
21:09:37 Join preglow [0] (
21:09:37amiconnThe fact that 'log' is simulator only is probably not caused by the original dumb code
21:10:09 Join bollewolle [0] (
21:10:36t0masamiconn: no.. don't think so :)
21:10:51t0masI guess it's because printf() worked on simulator... and didn't on target
21:11:01t0masthis should change to logf() I think?
21:11:09preglowanyone ever tried making a preemptive multitasker for rockbox? :-)
21:11:21*t0mas didn't :P
21:11:28amiconnpreglow: That would be a bad idea imho
21:11:51t0maspreglow: saw my email? I contacted the musepack people... and they're adding the fixes we made to their next minor release
21:12:25preglowamiconn: yes, i agree, just wondered if anyone tried
21:12:34preglowt0mas: yeah, i read it just now
21:12:57amiconnt0mas: They should rather find a way to get rid of the 64 bit multiplies
21:13:08preglowthey need 64 bit multiplies
21:13:13preglowbut they're doing it in a bad way
21:13:18preglowthat's really making my job hard
21:13:44amiconnPerhaps you could try optimising flac instead? :-P
21:13:49preglowno time now
21:14:03preglowi'm up to my bloody armpits in report writing that's been neglected for too long
21:15:46t0masamiconn? DEBUGF() is defined in debug.h right?
21:16:00preglowand flac is so incredibly full of mallocs
21:16:11amiconnt0mas: yeps... I wonder why the codecs don't get this
21:16:28preglowsomeone implement logf in plugins,btw
21:16:36preglowthat would be nice
21:17:14t0masif noone has done it tomorrow... I will
21:17:20preglowdo it now, it's quickly done
21:17:28amiconnThe codecs (as well as the plugins) should never include core headers directly, apart from codec.h / plugin.h
21:17:29t0masyes, but I'm already late
21:17:42t0masamiconn: dumb doesn't include codec.h :X
21:17:58amiconnThat's... dumb :-P
21:18:20preglowi don't know if anyone saw this yesterday, but i've got a heavily updated version of dumb lying around
21:18:47t0masamiconn: and debug.h isn't in codec.h
21:18:55preglowif someone starts working on dumb, please integrate this
21:18:57*amiconn points to HCl
21:19:11t0mashm? he wrote codec.h ?
21:19:13preglowhcl gave dumb a shot a month ago and promptly gave up
21:19:25t0mashow dumb :P
21:19:50preglowit needs some medium fixed point massaging
21:20:05t0masamiconn: shall I add debug.h to codec.h, and then add codec.h to dumb?
21:20:11 Join matsl_ [0] (
21:21:05amiconnSimply using debug.h probably won't work
21:21:21t0mashmz... including codec.h in dumb.h doesn't work either
21:21:25preglowreading flac source code is like reading a ugly c++ program gone bad
21:21:43amiconnThe codecs need to call rb->debugf() if DEBUGF() is defined, like the plugins do
21:22:14t0mashm... including debug.h works...
21:22:17t0masbut it's not the right way
21:23:15amiconnIt might work... but it *will* crash if the codec is ever run on another build than it was compiled for
21:23:35amiconn..because the function address won't match
21:23:37bollewollemkay, perhaps a dumb question, but should the playlist submenu be working for the iriver?
21:24:36t0masamiconn: how should I fix it then?
21:25:50t0masjust include debug.h anyway? and note is should be fixed?
21:26:02yngwiyes it should, if you mean where you can add a file to a playlist ect.
21:26:34amiconnIt's the same problem as making logf() available for plugins. Imho the solution should be similar to the DEBUGF() handling for plugins...
21:27:03t0masamiconn: yes, but for now?
21:27:19amiconn...which isn't perfect either, since it relies on the api pointer always being called 'rb'
21:27:24t0masjust include debug.h and note that we should start using plugin.h/codec.h and logf() ?
21:27:32bollewollewhich button should I press, because for me it is not the rec button like mentioned in the wiki
21:28:34yngwiif you want to add files to a playlist, then you just press the joystickbutton on a file or folder long, then the menu should pop up
21:28:44amiconnt0mas: I would leave it as-is for now; there will be quite some changes when the codecs are separated from the plugins
21:29:06amiconn...which will hopefully happen soon
21:29:09bollewolleoooooooh, well thanks

21:47:21t0maswell... it's used on other places
21:47:33t0masand the people in their IRC channel told me not to do that
21:48:16preglowthe code wont work on 64 bit platforms as it is now
21:48:42t0mashm.. then I guess their other developer will ask me to change this again...
21:48:47preglowthat is
21:48:49preglowit'll prolly work
21:49:30preglowbut yeah
21:49:41preglowthe fucntion you cast returns a mpc_uint32_t
21:49:49preglowwhich is quite obviously 32 bits
21:49:54preglowint might very well be 64 bits some places

23:27:29preglowusing internet seriously on 28k8 is impossible

23:35:02Shagnargn8 guys happy working :)
23:35:24linuxstbSlasheri: Another question: pcm_crossfade_start is a void function, but you check the return value in the audio_next function in playback.c (!pcm_crossfade_start)
23:36:22MoosSlasheri: wonderfull works still thanks; playlist work great now, FF/RW works beter idem for paused....

23:43:29Slasheripreglow: yes it does, but i think you mean "kihelmid" that is a verb and means itch/tingle
23:43:47Slasherilinuxstb: it's not void anymore :)
23:43:54SlasheriMoos: great
23:44:06Slasherilinuxstb: i will add the ifdef tomorrow :)
23:44:26Slasherinow really nights ;)
23:44:35preglowSlasheri: no, i mean what i said, it's the name of an album i have
23:44:43preglowaight, nitey
23:44:50Slasheriah, weird..
23:44:54linuxstbSlasheri: I'll just change the #ifdef to say _PLAYBACK_H - I assume that's what you meant to do.
23:44:55preglowmade by a finn
23:44:56Slasheriit doesn't make much sense
23:46:06Slasheribut i doubt it means that itch or nothing ;)

23:48:44Slasheribut now i have to go no matter what ;) ->
23:48:49ghode|afkhi, got a small "bug" i think
23:49:07MoosSlasheri: ;-)
23:50:30ghode|afkwhen i load up rockbox sometimes, the player gives no sound output. it loads up the wps screen, and the progress bar moves, but no sound appears, the only way to get it back is to go into the iriver firmware, exit, and then load rockbox back up again.
23:52:11preglowthere's another guy having that problem as well
23:52:15preglowbut i've never encountered it
23:53:54ghode|afkit's only just started happening the last few days. had a similar problem when mp3 playback was first implemented, but it seemed fix until now
