00:04:40ryan_jAlso tried the last song in the list, still no problems.
00:12:29leftrightthats strange, it still does it here
00:13:33ryan_jI just tried the daily build. Nothing. Just out of curiosity, which kind of file are you playing?
00:13:41ryan_jNot that it should matter

00:16:24ryan_jI assume it happens to all mp3s?
00:16:24leftrightI wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that I dont use unicode tags
00:16:33leftrightyes all mp3's
00:18:07leftrightmy tags are all written in ISO-8859-1

00:28:05ryan_jDoes yours still turn on even with the hold switch on?
00:28:48Stryke`from 'The bootloader will boot even if the hold switch(es) are on hold if you press PLAY really short. This will happen with either PLAY button and either hold switch, main unit and remote.'
00:29:03amiconnI added that...
00:29:18ryan_jamiconn: thanks. I must have missed that.
00:29:40amiconnHowever, I don't care much. I almost never use hold

00:59:27thegeek_if we could just implement some kind of "splash" mode for albumart

02:09:15OPPlike a store credit
02:09:22OPPwhat store is it
02:09:36BoD[]it's a small store in france
02:10:06BoD[]it's cheap but... maybe I should have paid a bit more and have the possibility to return it
02:10:44OPPwhy dont you want it

02:14:14BoD[]i guess it would be difficult de solve that
02:14:49Stryke`problem probably is with the camera
02:15:08BoD[]you need to find the specs or reverse engineer the sony usb protocols... why these f***ers didn't just use the standard usb mass device protocole is beyond me

12:27:45hshahfor the iriver?
12:28:15hshahthere are lots of patches there... but how do u patch the builds?
12:30:48[-AIR-]good question.
12:30:55[-AIR-]i couldn't figure it out :s
12:31:14[-AIR-]u need cygwin
12:31:18[-AIR-]google it
12:31:31[-AIR-]and you need to download the source from the daily builds
12:31:39[-AIR-]i got that far...but then stuck
12:33:20hshahwell ive posted about it on the rockbox forums and on the forums
12:33:34hshahhopefully someone comes to my rescue :p
12:37:48austriancoderpatch < patchname.patch
12:38:55austriancoderyou need a full development enviroment and current source (daily build or cvs)
12:39:19[-AIR-]so cygwin and current source?
12:39:24austriancoderthen you copy patch into root dir of sources and simply run patch < patchname.patch
12:39:33[-AIR-]where do you put the patch and where to you cd to?
12:40:50austriancoderwait one moment
12:41:19austriancoderthere is a ready-to-use development-enviroment for windows.. must search link.. linux user ;)

12:45:46hshahand then patch it using the program u linked to?
12:46:09austriancoderhshah: read this:
12:46:27hshahbut what im confused about is how come there is a different build for each mp3 player, but there is a generic source code?
12:47:13austriancoderbig parts of rockbox are generic.. and some parts are low-level drivers and other device specific stuff
12:47:36hshahso when its complied how will it know its for my iriver h120?
12:47:52austriancoderrockbox has a configure tool

15:16:29SlasheriLear: hi :)
15:17:04LearHi. I was wondering about that bug there's a workaround for in pcm_playback.c. How do you reproduce it?
15:17:22LearSpecific files/formats?
15:17:42SlasheriAh, hmm
15:17:52Slasherionly mp3 files has that problem
15:18:03LearI tried it a couple of times just now, and once I got something, but it could have been a "spike" turning the audio on...
15:18:23Slasheriyou should try find a file that has (loud) audio immediately at the start of the track
15:18:41Slasherithen remove the line commented "REMOVE THIS TO TEST"
15:18:45Learah, I primarily tried one with low audio in the start (making it easier to hear any noise).
15:18:51Learand yes, I removed that line. :)
15:19:00Slasheriyou will hear some junk pcm data when you first play that file
15:19:15Slasheriif you play the file second time, the problem will not appear until on next boot
15:19:26Learboot==rolo, in this case?
15:19:32Slasheriit might be some initialization problem with the mpa codec
15:19:48Slasherihmm, i haven't tried rolo boot.. i can test it now
15:20:06Learit ought to be...
15:22:06Slasheriinteresting.. that problem occurs only with cold boot
15:22:13Slasherirolo boot does not reproduce it
15:23:03Learhow could it be mp3-specific then? sounds more like audio hardware initialization...
15:23:49 Quit ashridah ("Leaving")
15:24:01Slasherii think it could be mp3 specific because if we discard some/one mp3 frame in the codec then that problem is gone
15:24:27Slasheri(but of course we will miss that one frame of audio also)
15:27:11Leardiscard, as in decoding in the codec, but not feed it to the audio buffer?
15:27:42Learah, there I think I heard something...
15:28:54Slasheriit might be some cpu specific initialization bug mpa codec has..
15:29:50Learbut it is odd that not even a rolo is enough to re-create the same situation...
15:30:37Learokay, I have a good repeatable test case now at least.
15:30:45Slasherigood :)
15:32:41austriancoderlinux user: what app do you use for scanning?
15:35:00SlasheriLear: i fixed it
15:35:14Slasheriwhat ever this does but we need to init the mac: asm volatile ("move.l #0x20, %macsr;");
15:35:15LearYou did? Macsr not set properly by any chance? :)
15:35:32Slasherii will now prepare it for commit
15:35:33LearYay, my suspicion was right! ;)
15:36:03LearThe mac must be in the right mode, or else some multiplications will go haywire.
15:36:13Slasherinice.. =)
15:37:06LearA bit like if you multiply two 32 bit numbers and take the low 32 bits of the result, instead of the top ones.

15:37:54 Quit austriancoder ("CGI:IRC")
15:38:08Mariebtw thanks to Lear for Replay Gain support
15:38:27Mariejust a quick question please
15:38:31LearYoure welcome, Marie.
15:39:01Marieit's about dB used by default with foobar
15:39:08Marieit's 89db
15:39:30Mariecan i increase it with this Clipping prevebtion
15:40:03LearNo, there is no preamp or similar in rockbox at the moment.
15:40:14Mariea ok
15:40:43LearWhat clip prevention does is to lower the volue a bit, if it otherwise would clip during playback.
15:40:57Mariecan't increase the volume for example 10db, because Rockbow have less volume than iriverfw
15:41:29Mariehave you planed to add this?
15:42:08LearNo immediate plans anyway. I rarely need to go above 70 in volume anyway...
15:42:23Marielucky man
15:42:30Mariehere it's not the same
15:42:49LearShouldn't be too hard to add though.
15:42:50Mariei really want to increase the dB value but i'm afraid
15:42:58Marieto add clipping
15:43:23 Quit wehn (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
15:44:49Marieis it reasonable to increase a bit this 89dB without risck?
15:45:12Marieis it one limit?
15:46:01LearDepends on the source material a lot, so it's hard to tell. Usually, a little clipping isn't that audible though.
15:46:46Mariee.g 95dB it's not a lot, no?
15:47:47LearThat would be doubling the volume, I think, so it is a lot, in that way...
15:48:52Mariehow many dB, think you, can i increase in average, for not have a lot of risk?
15:49:55LearI don't know, since it depends so much on the music in question. And I haven't really looked at it either...
15:50:20Mariea ok thanks for the help

17:59:14***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
18:09:59ryan_jHmmm... 'Move to next folder' seems to work fine if you just select a file from the file browser instead of inserting it into the playlist.
18:14:47ryan_jInserting into the playlist calls playlist_create with both dir and file as NULL. 'Move to next folder' doesn't work if dir == NULL.
18:26:30ryan_jLear: Should it even move to a new folder in this case? Since the playlist was created by inserting individual songs, there really is no 'next folder' to move to.
18:28:15 Join muesli- [0] (
18:28:59leftrightat the end of a playlist it could go back to file tree/last played ?
18:29:11Learmove to next folder is like "look for the next file when the playlist has ended"...
18:29:48leftrightit gets confused in its current form
18:31:10ryan_jI've got a 'fix', but it may not be what you're looking for.
18:31:33ryan_jit also may not be the right way to fix it.
18:31:41LearI'm also working on a fix...
18:33:00Learfirst one for check_subdir_for_music, then probably one for playback.c, so that playback doesn't stop.
18:34:27ryan_jAh... that makes sense.
18:35:29ryan_jMine's in get_next_index, and it just returns -1 if next_folder is set and playlist->in_ram isn't (which is the case here).
18:35:44ryan_jLike I said, it might not be the 'right' fix though.
18:37:29Learwhen is in_ram set?
18:39:33ryan_ja few places in playlist.c: empty_playlist, new_playlist, playlist_resume, etc.
18:39:54ryan_jBut it's only set to true if dir is non-null
18:41:52Learso, basically you're looking at a different case from me... :)
18:42:02 Quit muesli- (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
18:42:10ryan_jWhich one are you looking at then?
18:42:17*ryan_j is confused
18:45:51Learwhere you press play on the last file in a folder, and then try to skip to next. that can fail for various reasons.
18:46:16Lear1) if the "move to next folder" is on, and rb needs to back up to the root to locate the next song.
18:46:35Lear2) there is no next song, in which case playback stops, but you're still in the wps.
18:47:22ryan_jAh, I can see that.
18:48:33ryan_jI'll just test the case I was working on some more, then commmit if it works.
18:48:49ryan_jThat way it won't break the build (like my last one :-( )
18:52:24Leara bit tricky, because if first calls playlist_check, which, since move to next is on, assumes there is a next track, so playback stops the codec. but playback_next doesn't advance the playlist index, so the play code thinks it still is playing the last track...
18:52:41Learhm.. in this case, playback should stop, shouldn't it, and drop to the file tree?`
18:54:12OPPi cant wait for the h3xxx port

18:55:05ryan_jWhich is what it does
18:55:09ryan_jWith the fix
18:55:46Leareven in my case (where dir shouldn't be null)?
18:56:42ryan_jI don't know. My guess is no, since in that case in_ram should be true. I check both in_ram and next_folder.
18:57:28stripwaxOPP hmm, impatience won't help! ;-)

19:44:24Slasheristripwax_: hehe, that should be able to run irssi too if you can compile software for that box ;)
19:44:25Learslasheri: problem is, with "move to next folder" on, playlist_check returns true, but playlist_next can still fail...
19:44:42stripwax_Slasheri - but I like my user interfaces to be colourful and full of icons unfortunately
19:44:45SlasheriLear: do you have the wps stop with the latest cvs?
19:45:38Learwell, I do have the latest cvs as of today sometimes, plus some hacking from my side...
19:45:48Slasheristripwax_: Hmm, interesting. Almost everybody who has said that, have found irssi much more practicable and easy to use than mirc for example
19:46:39Learah, no, not the very latest changes...
19:46:42SlasheriLear: well, you have updated it during the last hour or something like that?
19:46:50Slasheriyou should try those

19:54:17thegeek_not that bad though
19:54:34Learslasheri: changed so that if playlist_check returns false, or playlist_next(<forwards>) fails, it does the same thing. playback then stops and wps doesn't exit.

19:58:28HClwe're not emulating anyways.

19:59:08Kupopoh right

21:11:36Slasheriyes, it certainly might need some parameters if it's global

22:53:00[-AIR-]not yet. eager to do so :)
22:53:10[-AIR-]infact...ill do it rite away
22:53:30[-AIR-]ok. removing mouse to make way for iriver...switching to touchpad
22:53:48[-AIR-]putting iriver in
22:54:02Learwith move to next folder off, the buffering loop, with it on, it loops the last track (and plays it).
22:54:15LearI'm testing this in the simulator, in case it makes a difference :)
22:55:34amiconn[-AIR-]: On iriver you will clearly notice when it switches to 64bit precision (at the 16th zoom-in if you don't zoom out in between
22:55:45[-AIR-]ok kewl
22:55:50Learhe, just saw that switch...
22:55:52[-AIR-]thanks amiconn :)
22:56:05[-AIR-]i can't wait
22:56:21amiconnOn archos it's way less noticeable, calculation time approximately doubles there
22:57:49amiconnOn iriver it's way more, roughly a factor of 10
22:58:20Learsounds like it could be faster then... :)
22:59:23amiconnThe 64bit routine for coldfire (provided by gcc) is well optimised (unless the SH1 routine), but the 32bit multiplication is a single instruction on the coldfire
22:59:53amiconnThat explains the huge difference. On archos, both 32bit and 64bit multiplications are subroutines
23:00:12LearI see...
23:00:35amiconn...because the SH1 can only do a 16*16 -> 32bit multiply in a single instruction
23:01:54amiconnI think I should submit my SH1 64bit multiply to the gcc team. Anyone having knowledge how to do this?
23:02:14[-AIR-]OMFG. its incredible!!!
23:02:22Bagderlinus might, at least his binutils patches have gone through
23:02:30[-AIR-]satisfyingly slow :D:D
23:02:40[-AIR-]and panning...GENIOUS
23:03:09[-AIR-]wow. what would u guys do without me hey :D:D
23:03:23amiconnI do have another optimisation in mind, and would like to hear opinions
23:03:55[-AIR-]type quickly :):D
23:04:07amiconnI think it should be possible to end the current calculation prematurely with a keypress
23:04:18[-AIR-]yer. good idea that if you want to zoom in multiple times, you won't have to wait every time
23:04:36[-AIR-]which key tho? stop?
23:04:41[-AIR-]short press "stop" ?
23:04:46amiconnNo special key
23:05:14[-AIR-]it does get very slow...but all the better :)
23:05:19amiconnJust if you want to zoom in, zoom out, or reset to default, it should interrupt the current calculation
23:05:33amiconn...and do the requested operation instead
23:05:36[-AIR-]yer good think

23:15:21amiconnLear: regarding the 64bit multiplication routine for coldfire: I tried using the emac (of course in integer mode), and got about the same speed as gcc's "__muldi3"
23:16:10amiconnThe bad thing about the emac is that it can only do 16*16->32bit and 32*32->40bit
23:16:38amiconnIt would have been useful if it would allow 32*32->48bit at least
