00:03:17DreamTactix291i think vorbis comments are unicode too

00:31:28belgarathoh dear, foobar deleted all my tags
00:36:11belgarathluckily i kept a backup
00:36:48belgarathit didn't delete all of them, just the ones that i had scanned before i set it to id3v2 i think
00:36:54belgarathwhich was around half...
00:37:45Stryke`what makes you think it deleted the tags before you set it to id3v2? ive never seen foobar delete tags unless you want it to
00:41:25LuthionOk, this is probably a stupid question that I could find the answer to somewhere, but I've searched around with no results and I'm getting tired so I'll ask anyways: How do I convert (or it's called complie, isn't it?) the .c files in the plugin-dir of the CVS to .rock files?
00:41:38belgarathwell they weren't deleted before i scanned the files
00:41:50Stryke`what are you using to view the files?
00:42:08belgarathmp3 tag
00:42:37belgarathbut its a bit late for that as I deleted them (after making sure I had a backup)
00:42:44Stryke`oh ok
00:42:47Stryke`no big loss
00:43:16Stryke`i wonder if it has some sort of priority system like foobar (which will read APEv2 tags above all else) that has people that use mp3gain thinking their tags were deleted
00:43:26LearI've said it before, mp3tag can't show unicode tags, which Foobar writes by default. Try another program and you may be surprised (and relieved). :)
00:43:46belgarathdamnit i just deleted all my files, thanks lear...

00:44:37belgarathall i put in foobar preferences was check "always write ISO... instead of ...."
00:45:05Moosi just come back home and i will RG all my mp3 files :)
00:45:07belgarathand then changed standard inputs to id3v2
00:45:16Learif so, mp3tag should be able to read them...
00:45:26belgarathit didn't read half
00:45:33Mooswhat program needed? foobar?
00:45:58Moosit's work on iriver yet?
00:46:00belgarathleading me to believe that when I previously did the regain with ape as the input, I think it may have replaced the tags
00:46:24belgarathno biggie i'll just try again in the morning
00:46:44Stryke`maybe you had always remove id3v2 tags selected?
00:46:57belgarathno i don't think so
00:47:07belgarathalthough that is a possibility
00:47:30belgarathbut I thought that cdex (the program i used to use before eac) did id3v1 and v2?
00:48:13Stryke`yeah, i'd love to look at one of the deleted tag mp3s too late, though
00:48:59onkeljonashi... quick Q - is there any way to pause scrolling in the wps after each completed scroll? (so it'll scroll "very long name of very funky album" all the way through and then pause for some time)
00:49:14Stryke`onkeljonas: not yet, id love the same feature
00:50:10onkeljonaskk thx
00:50:37onkeljonasyea - it looks weird having a line scrolling all the time
00:51:18Stryke`especially when you have a song title 'They Provide The Paint For The Picture-Perfect Masterpiece That You Will Paint On The Insides Of Your Eyelids'

01:00:01 Part leftright
01:00:09onkeljonas@ Stryke` - thats what I'm playing with, but I can't get the right setting - too high and line becomes a mess after first scroll
01:00:30Stryke`how high does it allow you to go?
01:01:04Stryke`i think you should adjust the scroll speed along with
01:01:30onkeljonas160 is max, but somewhere above 100 and it gets fuxored... even at speed 1
01:02:26Stryke`Scroll Speed: Controls how many times per second the scrolling text moves a step.
01:02:39belgarathstep as in pixel?
01:02:40Stryke`yeah, i read it wrong
01:02:50Stryke`as in whatever you chose as the size
01:02:55Stryke`so yours is moving 160 a second

02:19:03ansivirusanyone here have the JBRFM?
02:19:43ansivirusI'm wondering if I can just buy the 6V 1000mA cig lighter adapter from Radioshack for 17.00 rather than spending 31.00 on the archos one
02:20:27ansivirusthe A/C adapter that came with it is 5V 700mA
02:20:46ansivirusthe Cig Lighter adapter sold from Archos is 6V 1.6A
02:20:48ansivirusany ideas?
02:25:40CassandraShould be OK, yes.
02:25:51CassandraBut I offer no guarantees.
02:26:01ansivirussounds good enough to me
02:26:19ansivirusthat's what i thought also just wanted another opinion prior to trying it :P
02:26:28CassandraI charge my FM from a 6V block.
02:26:56CassandraBut I blew up my first iRiver trying the same thing.
02:26:56ansivirusi actually measured the output of the 5V block that came with mine and it outputs 9.5V
02:27:19Cassandra*nods* Unregulated PSUs. They vary depending on load.
02:27:30CassandraThe voltage measurement is for a nominal load.
02:27:44ansivirusI just don't think that it will blow up the FM Recorder because the one they sell is 6V 1.5A and the one i'm gonna use is 6V 1000mA
02:29:07ansivirusok well I thank you.. I'm off to RadioShack to purchase.. leave on a road trip in a little bit.. 23 hours driving don't wanna leave my mp3s behind :P
02:29:11ansivirusthanks again for the info

12:35:05CassandraSee "Working with patches" on the Wiki.

12:51:44ashridahbecause a developer with commit access hasn't applied them, or they don't work on all platforms?
12:53:02ashridahif you're using cygwin, patching is typically similar. go to the top level of your copy of the rockbox source (typically just the 'rockbox' directory) and use patch -p 1 < /path/to/uncompressed/patch/file
12:53:29ashridahif the patch has a .gz extension, typically you'll need to use gunzip on it. (bunzip2 for .bz2 extensions), but it probably isn't compressed.

12:54:07ashridahnow, if that immediately asks you a question about not being able to find the file, ctrl-c it, and try patch -p 0 < /path/to/patch/file instead

14:39:59ripnetukyeah, i know how open source dev works <−−- (not trying to be rude!)
14:40:17ripnetukbut usually with these things, architecture work needs doing first
14:40:26ripnetuk(eg, codec api needed doing before mp3 support)
14:41:02ripnetukim guessing that one of the 'masters' like LinusN would need to approve a change that allowed duel screen structures etc
14:41:50Cassandra*nods* Yes.
14:41:55CassandraI think someone was working on it.
14:42:01CassandraMaybe they went on holiday.

15:53:52Chamoisdoes the cpu frequency changing take power
15:58:13***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
16:01:36LearI doubt the changing as such consumes any noticable amount of power, but I don't know much about that, to be honest. :)
16:05:41amiconnThe change itself doesn't consume additional power, but it costs a bit of performance. The PLL needs to relock on the new frequency, which can take up to 10 msec. In th emeantime, the CPU core is running at 11 MHz

17:08:23preglowyes, sure
17:08:40Learin these cases, the functions are called very often...
17:08:42preglowbut there's usually more to be gained by putting data in iram and using cache better for code
17:09:04preglowhmm, i should put in the cachetest code i use in my imdct patch

17:09:36NJoinodd [0] (
17:10:08preglowputting all the cache critical functions right next to each other is pretty important to avoid destroying the cache all the time
17:10:14Learwondering, because I'm trying to rewrite some vorbis code into asm, but progress is slow...
17:10:44preglowso we should have a CACHE_SEG #define or something for important functions
17:10:52preglowit's trivial to implement
17:11:00Learthat would explain why things seemed to go faster when I removed some stuff from iram that wasn't needed anyway...
17:11:04preglowbut i still have no dev env :/
17:12:11preglowyeah, the cache is pretty shitty, if the lower twelve bits (or so) of a function address collide, the functions will never be cached properly if both are called often

17:21:24prethomamiconn: lovely work on the grayscale and graphics
17:22:35amiconnThx :)
17:23:10prethomwhat number of colours does h1x0 have now?
17:23:14prethomin dithered mode, that is
17:23:26amiconn33, as on the archos
17:23:33prethomwith less overhead?
17:24:00prethomand btw, what is the retrace like glitch that can be seen every now and then?
17:24:12amiconnSince the LCD data hookup is parallel, it uses less CPU, somewhat less than 10%
17:24:41amiconnHowever, the grayscale lib keeps the CPU at 120 MHz, to avoid timer period changes (that would cause glitches like mad)
17:24:54prethomi dont think that's too bad
17:25:36amiconnThe retrace glitch is due to the grayscale refresh rate not being synchronsied with the internal LCD refresh
17:25:53prethomand this is as synched as it gets?
17:26:11amiconnUnfortunately it's not possible to synchronise, as the LCD has no way to read back its internal read pointer
17:26:39amiconn...and the frequency isn't even constant, as the LCD uses an RC oscillator which drifts with temperature
17:26:50prethomahh, indeed
17:26:51Learpreglow, do you know of any documentation over what can cause a pipeline stall in a coldfire? the docs I have mention two stores in a row, but that's pretty much it...
17:26:52amiconnWe have the same problem on archos, even more visible
17:26:56prethomthen you can pretty much just forget it
17:27:03prethomit's not that visible anyway
17:27:18prethomlear: i have no idea, i'd love such documentation
17:27:32prethomlear: only stalls i know of are store stalls and accumulator fetch stalls
17:28:07prethomamiconn: it's surprisingly nice to view pictures with this thing, i would never have guessed it
17:28:09Learyes, that's all the user's manual mentions...
17:29:23prethomlear: there's surprisingly little info on the pipeline at all
17:35:09amiconnToday I tested my idea to switch the LCD to b&w mode while showing grayscale. Turned out that it's worse than now
17:36:14prethomin what way?
17:36:15amiconnThe internal refresh rate doubles in b&w mode, so this should allow for less flicker. However, the LCD uses some kind of internal interlace in that mode, leading to strange interference artifacts
17:36:53amiconnWould have been nice - would need half the RAM, and allow double the refresh rate :(
17:37:26amiconnThere is a way to bring down the flicker a bit - we could increase the internal LCD clock
17:37:33prethombtw, am i the only one getting really strange fwpatcher gui bugs?
17:37:46amiconnCurrently we set it to 76 kHz, leading to a refresh rate of ~70 Hz
17:38:15amiconnWe can set it up to 120 kHz, but I don't know how that influences power consumption
17:38:35prethomi fire it up, click the text box, and get a could not open patched firmware for checksum check error :/
17:38:38amiconnThat would give a refresh rate of ~110 Hz, and hence less flicker
17:38:51prethomi think it looks very nice as it is, so unless it gives a way better picture...

17:44:27t0masby using less cpu power
17:44:36t0masif the cpu is at a lower speed... it uses less power..
17:44:44t0masso it can run longer

17:46:11t0maswe just use less cpu to decode the same music...
17:46:14t0masbetter codecs
17:46:23prethomt0mas: are you certain this is the case?
17:46:26[-AIR-]i'd have to make sure the rockbox firmware and the iriver firmware are doing exactly the same thing to test battery

20:49:22Coldtoastwow! a gun that can fire 1 million rounds a minute
20:50:36[-AIR-]ok. the mandlebrot. it's a fractal, ie. a mathematical model to which you can zoom in infinitely. so why, when you zoom in does it become pixelated like ur looking at a jpeg?
20:51:21amiconn[-AIR-]: Limited precision.
20:51:36[-AIR-]which means? <−−−− not meaning to be rude
20:51:46amiconnThe mandelbrot plugin uses fixed point math, with a fractional part of 26 bits
20:52:09OPPhow long do you think till the h320 has a release
20:52:14OPPlike 6 months?
20:52:30amiconnThis will happen with almost every mandelbrot generator, sooner or later depending on the precision used
20:52:30ghode|afkwhen its done ;p
20:52:32Coldtoast23 years
20:52:49[-AIR-]fixed point math? ie. generates the inital image and then that's it? doesn't generate the new image every zoom ?
20:53:39ghode|afklear: looks like problem is gone, just downloaded the latest bleeding edge. and it plays fine now
20:53:50amiconnNo, it means the numbers are stored internally in a way that the fractzional part takes a fixed amount of bits, and the integer part too of course
20:54:35amiconnHowever, this precision problem would occur with floating point math in the same way.
20:54:59amiconnOf course the image is recalculated every time, otherwise you couldn't zoom in that deep
20:55:50amiconnI'm pondering whether to implement an optional high precision mode which would kick in automatically at a certain zoom level
20:56:20amiconnOf course you would notice it because it will get significantly slower at that point

22:27:39CoCoLUSnewest build hangs on my flac files...
22:27:54CoCoLUSmust have something to do with the implementing of metadata reading
22:31:57CoCoLUStotally reproduceable, everytime
22:39:49amiconnRed H1x0 builds... to whoever Ryan is
22:46:39LearEh, has he even compiled the thing? :)
22:48:27amiconnLear: I just noticed something. Is it just a coincidence or did *you* write an image viewer for AmigaOS some years ago?
22:48:45LearNope, that is correct...
22:49:05amiconnI noticed b/c I used Visage 39.22 today...
22:49:38LearOh, you did? How come?
22:50:08amiconnI viewed some pics on my good old Amiga 4000.
22:50:23amiconnVisage is in fact my favourite full-screen viewer on Amiga
22:50:27LearHe, I put my A4000 away for a number of years ago...
22:50:40amiconnMine is still running 24/7
22:51:06amiconnI used it mainly for email, and since it's running all day anyway, it also does dnetc work
22:52:11amiconnOf course it's not a stock A4000...
22:52:26LearTowards the end mine had problems booting from the HD; sometimes it worked after a couple of resets...
22:53:36amiconnThe only problem of my Amiga is that the audio output is broken. I already fixed it several times; some vias on the mainboard are failing...
22:54:05amiconn...luickily only some of those located in the corner where the audio part is
22:54:52amiconnOh, and the SCSI module for my cyberstorm is broken, so I had to hook up the HD to the internal IDE port - not exactly fast...
22:55:01amiconnI bet it's the connector.
