00:42:14stripwax_so, I asked on here a couple of days ago if rockbox would get confused if rockbox.tagdb was generated from a different filesystem than actually on my iriver.
00:42:51stripwax_turns out it gets hella confused if I select a track which is in the tagdb (i.e. on the filesystem on which the tagdb was generated) which is actually not on my iriver ... rockbox just totally hangs. I needed to reset
00:47:05stripwax_oh, and took about six hours to run @ 133Mhz, which is kinda uncool
00:47:51ashridahsix hours!
00:48:00ashridahdoes that machine have DMA hd access?
00:48:22stripwax_that machine has an external USB2 hdd
00:49:29stripwax_but USB2 isn't actually so slow, so I'd guess the bottleneck is maybe the CRC calc in perl
00:52:11stripwax_any ideas why browsing my tagdb causes rockbox to hang? sorta sucky.
00:53:50amiconnBrowsing shouldn't hang it
00:53:59stripwax_Woah. Also, any way to make the fileviewer show tracks in file number order when browsing artist -> album -> tracks?
00:54:07amiconn...regadless of what weird path is stored in the db
00:54:10stripwax_yeah - shouldn't hang it.. but seems to.
00:54:27amiconnFile number order???
00:54:32stripwax_Hrm, can't reproduce it though
00:54:37stripwax_amiconn - er,, track number order, i mean
00:54:50amiconnHmm, I don't know...
00:56:39stripwax_Maybe the hang while browsing was a one off. I can't even reproduce hang-while-selecting-a-track-that-isn't-in-the-filesystem right now either. weird

Despite my best efforts, the fonts for the TOC levels seem to have gone a bit wrong for me, and some TOC (Headings) level 3 and 4 items seem to have swapped for some reason.

11:22:20LinusNi had a hard time figuring out why his fix worked
11:22:51LinusNstatus_draw() refreshed the status bar for every call
11:24:22linuxstbMorning all. Thought I would mention that I've started work on a Sudoku plugin, if anyone's interested.
11:24:51*LinusN googles for "sodoku"
11:25:08Bgerlinuxstb: is this the game that u must have all numbers from 1 to 9 in all rows/columns ?
11:25:51linuxstbYep. Plus in the 3x3 sub-grids.
11:26:24LinusNthat is a sodoku solver
11:26:29Bgerwhat coincidence... i read about it 2 days ago :)
11:26:49amiconnImho the playstatus wps patch is implemented in a rather sub-optimal fashion
11:27:04LinusNhow should it be solved?
11:27:04Bgeramiconn: bugfix it :)
11:27:17amiconnIt delivers a fixed character per mode, however, it would be better if it would act like a condition
11:27:36LinusNlike a switch?
11:28:04amiconnWe don't have a swicth syntax atm, but it could work like an if()
11:28:37amiconnThis way one could use any desired character per mode, even a conditional image as soon as that is supported
11:30:19LinusNiiuc you can use the "if" construct on those tags
11:30:36LinusNwould be a nasty nested one, but it should work
11:35:58amiconnIf I look at wps-display.c, lines 590ff, it look like these tags return a specific letter if the mode is active, and nothing if it isn't

11:47:25linuxstbFor Sudoku, I need to display the 9x9 grid of numbers on the screen. Any suggestions for dealing with the different LCD sizes of the various targets?
11:48:04LinusNyes, calculate the placement using LCD_WIDTH and LCD_HEIGHT
11:48:18linuxstbBut what about the font size for the numbers?
11:48:26LinusNand maybe even decide if the font fits
11:48:54LinusNif the user selected font fits, you should use it, else use the internal font
11:50:21linuxstbOK. I'll draw the grid based on LCD_WIDTH and LCD_HEIGHT, calculate the cell size, and then find a font.
11:50:38linuxstbWhen you say "internal font", do you mean FONT_SYSFIXED?
11:51:07linuxstbHow do I get the user's font? Is that by not selecting any font at all?
11:52:10LinusNyou will have problems on the archos
11:52:26linuxstbI'll need a font about 5 pixels high.
11:53:01linuxstbMinesweeper defines some bitmaps which I could use - they are 5 pixel high numerals.
11:53:06LinusNmaybe you should have 0-9 as bitmaps
11:53:12LinusNon all targets
11:53:26LinusNwith different sizes
11:53:32linuxstbThat's what I was thinking, and optimise the size for each LCD size.
11:53:59linuxstbSo I would ignore the fonts completely?
11:54:07LinusNdo that
11:54:27LinusNhow do you plan to do the input?
11:55:12LinusNi suggest cursor movement with joystick, and joy push to cycle the number on the selected square
11:55:27LinusNand it only cycles between the unused numbers
11:55:32linuxstbI've done that already. On the iriver, you move a cursor using the joystick, press it to toggle between "navigate" and "insert" mode, and then move it left/right in insert mode to select the number.
11:55:49linuxstbI think I've done what you suggest.
11:56:09linuxstbBut at the moment I cycle through all the numbers. I'm not sure how much help I want the computer to give the user.
11:56:32linuxstbSorry, it is slightly different.
11:56:32LinusNit should have a solver imho :-)
11:56:54LinusNonly using unused numbers isn't too much help imho
11:57:39linuxstbA similar problem to solving is actually generating the games in the first place.
11:58:09Bgerlinuxstb: i suggest up/down for cycling through the numbers
11:58:22LinusNBger: agreed
11:58:37linuxstbI thnk I'll have some pre-generated games, the option to start with a blank grid (to copy a newspaper puzzle for example), and a randomly generated game.
11:58:50linuxstbWhy up/down and not left/right?
11:58:50LinusNand a solver :-)
11:58:59LinusNbecause it's more intuitive
11:59:09LinusNup to raise, down to lower
11:59:28Bgeras usually, LinusN outstripped me ...
11:59:33linuxstbWell, both could work. - I find an X-axis just as intuitive as a Y-axis.
11:59:56LinusNin fact, i think i would like my input method better
12:00:18LinusNbecause you will always try to move the cursor while in input mode
12:00:49LinusNless annoying
12:01:03linuxstbLinusN: I'll try your method and see how it feels. But I've already implemented my method, and I like it.
12:01:07Bgerhm, i prefer the linuxstb's variant
12:01:11LinusNbut my method will of course involve major joystick clicking :-)
12:01:22linuxstbI feel a config option coming up already...
12:01:29Bgerhahaha :)

12:20:51preglowthink not
12:20:58preglowi'm hoping its not the psu
12:21:00preglowbut it usually is
12:21:46Bgerseriously, i had one IBM, which didn't had one of its gaskets ..and it made very annoying sound
12:22:09Bgerrubber gaskets...
12:22:28Bgerbut the PSU is a good guess
12:22:41ReKleSSa fan somewhere?
12:23:20Bger8kHz ... i don't think it's a fan
12:30:08preglownah, the fan in this psu is large, and rotates pretty slowly
12:33:38*B4gder mutters
12:34:16B4gderdebian dist-upgrade upgraded my valgrind and now my valgrind-using scripts die ;-/
12:34:51ReKleSSI've tried using valgrind a few times... usually takes too much time to do all the suppression stuff

13:41:08linuxstbIs there an easy way to test for a long joystick press on the iriver?
13:41:28Bgerbutton repeat ?
13:42:07linuxstbNo, a single long press - like the one that brings up the context menu in the file browser
13:42:23Bgerafaik this is the way
13:42:30LinusNthat's the way
13:42:55Bgersee tree.c (or i'm wrong)
13:43:54linuxstbFor Sudoku, I'm thinking of going with Linus's idea, but a long press on the joystick will toggle to my idea of an "insert mode".
13:44:13Bgerand short ?

13:46:01webguest95preglow: just read the logs, I got that whine as well in my psu. A couple of days before it died :(
13:46:32Bgerwebguest95: better to die PSU than to die everything else ...
13:46:37linuxstbBger: So you prefer my initial idea, but with up/down instead of left/right ?
13:47:07webguest95I do not remember what component did it, but it is not the fan. iirc it is a transformator or something like that.
13:48:05webguest95Bger: yes, i thought everything had died on me, but a new psu brought my machine back to life
13:48:56Bgerwebguest95: i had very bad experience 3 years ago... with one PSU-"bomb" - JNC ... it killed everything but CPU & RAM ... the CD-ROM started to sparkle ... and the HDD.. but the last one died about 2 months later
13:49:47Bgerin fact the same PSU killed also 2 HDDs before the last one
13:50:20webguest95linuxstb, if you make bitmap icons, those could be used in other plugins as well. Like the chess clock, track-timer and so on. As it is a fixed number of digits, the screen-space could be used in a better way for those plugins.
13:50:34webguest95hmm, not icons, digits
13:51:37linuxstbwebguest95: Possibly, but maybe those plugins will require larger/smaller digits - I have a specific need to fill the screen with a 9x9 grid
13:51:42Bgerlinuxstb: with this plugin the sudoku will become even more popular :)
13:52:02linuxstbIs it a bug that there is no Sudoku in Rockbox? :)
13:52:15webguest95Bger: sounds horrible. I also had a similar experience about 10 yrs ago, when my harddisk stopped working. I tapped on the harddisk gently, and *boom*. The psu crashed with a bang.
13:52:48webguest95iirc, that was the only thing that was ruined though. So, it wasn't that bad.
13:53:19webguest95linuxstb: yes, that is true.
13:53:38Bgerluckily in most cases the PSU kills only itself
13:53:41preglowwebguest95: hell, this psu is brand new
13:53:53Bgerpreglow: brand ?
13:54:08webguest95preglow: oh, hmm. Well, mine was 2 yrs old.
13:54:17preglowBger: northq
13:54:32Bgeris it "heavy" :)
13:54:50webguest95But, did it start whining just now, or has it been like that from the start?
13:55:12Bgerthe most lame way to learn are there any "saved" components
13:55:21Bgerlike filters etc
13:55:28preglowit just started now, i think
13:55:49preglowalthough i know a whine this high-pitched can easily disappear due to accoustics
13:55:52preglowi just moved to a new place
13:57:13linuxstbI'm sure this has been discussed before, but it would be nice to be able to "task-switch" between the WPS and a plugin.
13:57:39webguest95ok. I googled a bit when the psu crashed, and I found out that there is some components in the psu that can do that. I had a bad psu btw.
13:57:52Bgerlinuxstb: many times
13:58:19linuxstbIs there a fundamental problem, or is it just that no-one has coded it?
13:58:37webguest95Has the jpeg viewer always stopped playback, or am I recalling wrongly?
13:58:48B4gderwebguest95: always
13:58:59B4gderit uses the audio buffer
13:59:13webguest95B4agder: ok :) ahh, that explains it.
13:59:21B4gderlinuxstb: it would require that the plugin starts in a new thread I guess and some basic switching logic
14:00:02 Quit B4gder ("Lmnar")
14:00:22webguest95It would be cool if that would be possible though. Is it too demanding to fit in the plugin space?
14:00:32webguest95Like, memory wise
14:00:37preglowoh yes
14:00:42preglowat least for most pictures
14:00:51webguest95for the "down sampling"
14:01:06Bgersomeone already had idea to do this
14:01:53webguest95I mean the raw image is quite big. Well, I do not know how the jpeg viewer works. But I can imagine why it wouldnt fit in plugin memory.

21:18:23dpassen1thegeek: its a nice player, factory firmware allows for flac playback, ogg, near gapless with mp3, limited video playback, usb host functionality
21:18:28thegeekcolor does look good
21:18:34thegeekbut it's really not needed
21:18:37HET2is the h140 ums compatible?

21:22:14HET2the h140 doesnt play flac does it
21:23:00thegeekrockbox supports the iriver h-series
21:23:04thegeekthat includes the h140
21:23:12crwlh100 series :)
21:23:15HET2thegeek: rockbox for iriver is not quite done i recon
21:23:36thegeekat the moment rockbox is _the_ best firmware for any portable player
21:23:45thegeekit probably supports the most codecs
21:23:53thegeekand it certainly has the largest potential
21:24:00thegeekand yes it does play flac
21:24:08thegeekit's not done
21:24:12thegeekand hopefully never will
21:24:15HET2thegeek: yes that's why i came here, to find out what mp3 player to buy for rockbox ;)
21:24:22thegeekit does work very well though;)
21:24:31thegeekand I said the h140
21:24:33thegeekor the h120
21:24:37thegeekif you cant afford the h140
21:25:17HET2yes thanks
21:25:30crwlsome people might appreciate h120's slimness compared to the h140, though
21:26:09thegeekI have the h120
21:26:16thegeekI did not the think it was that much
21:26:20thegeekjust a couple of mm's ?
21:26:23crwlit's not much, yes

21:27:39HET2thegeek: 160gm vs 178gm
21:27:54thegeekworth imho
21:28:05thegeekif money is no problem;)
21:28:06thegeekas you said
21:28:12thegeek*worth it
21:28:20HET2the difference is 3mm
21:28:36HET23mm thickness that is, height/width are the same
21:29:00HET2and battery runtime is the same
21:29:07thegeekwe know HET2;)
21:29:12thegeekand as I said
21:29:21thegeekyou can buy a better battery and install yourself
21:29:26thegeekyou can even buy a larger hd
21:29:34HET2thegeek: i was just thinking aloud
21:29:46thegeekright now I guess the 60gb dual platter is the best(only) for the h140
21:30:04HET240gb is more than enough imho
21:30:07HET2i'd rather buy a battery
21:30:12thegeekthen you would have a 60gb rockbox-supported player that can play for more than ~20 hours
21:30:25thegeekyou can never have enough;)
21:31:04HET2thegeek: i have had an ipod for a years now, i have enough of too much already
21:31:13HET2thegeek: i want something that is going to last for more than a year ;)
21:31:49HET2iriver 140, here i come
21:32:09thegeekyou should try it first though
21:32:19thegeekmy only complaint is the joystick
21:32:33HET2well, the ipod is the only mp3 player with a usable interface
21:32:43HET2but other than that it is a piece of shit unfortunately
21:33:00HET2no matter if i get a rio karma, an x5 or a 140, they're all clunky on the ui
21:33:12amiconnActually battery runtime might be a bit better with h120 than with h140
21:33:16HET2and i don't want something that will want to play videos for me
21:33:25HET2amiconn: according to the data sheet it's the same...
21:33:26amiconnSpinning up the disk needs less power for single platter
21:34:28amiconnWhile the h1x0 series is pretty good hardware-wise, there are some points that I don't like
21:35:02amiconn(1) It has rather bad crosstalk suppression, *far* worse than e.g. archos
21:35:32amiconnI dunno whether the UDA1380 is to blame, or it's some wiring/grounding problem
21:36:18amiconn(2) While the case is very robust (no cheap plastic) the shock protection of the hd leaves something to desire
21:36:20webguest68amiconn- what is crosstalk suppression?
21:37:22amiconnCrosstalk means that you can hear a bit of what happens in one channel (e.g. left) in the other channel (e.g. right)
21:37:40HET2amiconn: have you tried different headphones?
21:37:57amiconnI've done some experiments:
21:38:57amiconnBoth the MAS chip in the archos and the mentioned UDA1380 in the iriver are supposed to completely silence one channel if you push the balance adjustment fully to the other channel
21:39:51amiconnI connected the headphone, set balance to 100% left, volume to max, the shielded the left earpiece acustically and listened to the right earpiece
21:40:06amiconnIn an ideal world, I shouldn't be able to hear anything
21:40:29webguest68I use my 140 with Sensaphonics Prophonics 2X-S- it does it's job IMO esp. through the optical out :), but as you say, maybe there are better solutions...
21:40:56HET2amiconn: the trouble with the archos is that nobody sells them...
21:41:07amiconnOn archos I could hear almost nothing, while on iriver I heard almost my normal listening volume...

21:41:38amiconnwebguest68: optical out is a completely different story; no analog audio component of the iriver is involved then
21:42:01HET2webguest68: what good is optical out when you're on the street?
21:42:31noC|andY`fRayou can build a portable dac for example
21:42:41amiconnHowever, I don't have any optical components besides my DVD player
21:43:10amiconn...and the only thing with an s/pdif input besides my iriver is my archos

21:46:01webguest68yep :) but I can tell you that you've never heard the music before :)
21:46:13HET2oh come on, it'
21:46:19HET2oh come on, it's an mp3 after all
21:47:04webguest68these are ones of the best out there; I know it's just a DAP, but the difference is so huuuge :)
21:47:23noC|andY`fRayeah i often read about them on headfi

21:49:18noC|andY`fRathat is a must
21:50:22webguest68good luck :) Ultimate Ears UE-1O Pro are also great from what I've read, comparable to 2X-S
21:50:41noC|andY`fRayeah but they are as expensive as the 2x-s :(
21:50:57webguest68even more :)

22:27:48Paul_The_NerdWhat's being discussed?
22:28:00webguest45slippery joysticks
22:28:09webguest45on the H140 that is
22:28:34webguest45not really a discssion, I'm talking to myself
22:28:47*Paul_The_Nerd likes his H120 joystick
22:29:07paughi was going to replace it entirely but i'll try one of those first i think
22:29:39webguest45replace with what ?
22:30:19paughsomething better ;)
22:30:35paughprobably something convex rather than concave
22:31:14webguest45well nil varnish worked for me
22:31:20paughlike a low profile chess pawn
22:32:04webguest45get some iron filings and glue them in the dimple
22:33:12paughi may just drill a small hole and put a screw in the center
22:33:48webguest45carefull you dont split it
22:34:21Paul_The_NerdThe only problem I have is how easily I accidentally change tracks while adjusting volume.
22:34:55webguest45I dont find that a problem
22:35:30paughon another note: flac decoder chokes on high sample rate files. not surprising but it probably shouldn't lock the unit
22:36:05Paul_The_NerdIt locks the unit?
22:36:19*Paul_The_Nerd has big behemoths of thumbs that aren't nearly as precise as his fingers. =/
22:36:24paughwell, it crashes, forcing a reset
22:36:36Paul_The_NerdIs this new, or old?
22:36:46paughthe build?
22:37:10Paul_The_NerdThe build and the problem, I guess. Like, has it been doing it a while, or just a specific build, or just *since* a specific build?
22:37:58paughbuild is from 22. i'll try the latest. that's the first i've tried since i only just got my h140 so i can't say about other versions.
22:39:50Bagderfinally back on my 2001FP screen after weeks on a crappy 17" CRT
22:40:53paughmmm i was looking at one of those today. not a bad price at all.
22:41:03Paul_The_NerdI know that FLAC isn't always decoded at full speed anyway
22:41:09Paul_The_NerdSometimes the buffer empties and you'll get skips.
22:41:22paughPaul_The_Nerd, yeah i've heard that
22:41:29Paul_The_NerdYou might want to convert them to Lossless wavpacks.
22:41:39paugh(as in, heard skips on playback)
22:41:57Paul_The_NerdYou get very similar filesizes, and since it's another lossless format, there's no data lost in transcoding so you can revert later if you need.
22:42:09Paul_The_NerdAs well, wavpack runs fine in my experience.
22:42:13 Quit hardeep ("My damn controlling terminal disappeared!")
22:44:23paughwavpack is a better compressor too. i wrote some code to add wv support to a p2p app recently. and therein lies the problem. not enough support in the apps i use (yet) fucked up tags too. (ape?!)

22:47:20Paul_The_NerdHehehe. Fair enough
22:47:56Paul_The_NerdFor me, it's all a matter of converting from CDs, so format choice is pretty much entirely flexible.
