00:00:07rasherOh.. well that's broken.
00:00:22]RowaN[dont quote me on any of this, im very drunk
00:00:22t0masdoesn't it create a new file?
00:00:45t0masmaybe there's some smart idea for creating all new files... to make it faster or something?
00:00:57rasherIt should just edit the existing - or make it look that way
00:01:04t0masit should yeah....
00:01:05rasherif it creates a new file, it had better make it look like the old one
00:01:12]RowaN[well technically yes it creates a new file of course, but you're really just adding a tag to a file that was already there so the created date shurely shuouldnt change
00:01:13*t0mas doesn't use it
00:01:19rasherBut then.. foobar makes baby jeebus cry.
00:01:27t0mastime to go to bed
00:01:28t0masgood night :)

07:34:39amiconnGood moirning
07:40:08amiconnI'm thinking about changing the button #defines
07:40:49amiconn...mainly to get rid of the separate BUTTON_REMOTE, that already caused a number of problems
07:42:08amiconnI think a template like: SSRRRMMM (one letter per hext digit) would be good
07:42:52amiconnThe top 5 bits are reserved for system events like now. The remaining 3 bits can be used for flags.
07:43:11amiconnCurrently there are only 2 - BUTTON_REL and BUTTON_REPEAT
07:43:28amiconnThen we have 12 bits each for remote and main buttons
07:47:27amiconnOn archos, the simple scheme with the BUTTON_REMOTE flag did work because of 2 properties of the archos remote button handling
07:48:10amiconn(1) The button driver never sends repeat or release events for the remote.
07:49:25amiconn(2) The remote button events are inserted between the main button events, not handled together with the main buttons
07:51:40amiconnHmm, I'm not sure whether a behaviour like (2) would be preferable on iriver too
07:52:41amiconnThe advantage would be to have more button bits available for each main unit and remote (for a possible future many-button platform)
07:53:21 Quit dwihno (Remote closed the connection)
07:53:28amiconn...but the disadvantage is that it will get very difficult to check for button combos between one remote and one main unit button

08:03:16amiconnLinusN: What do you think about the skip forward / back in repeat one mode issue brought up on the ml?
08:06:22***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
08:12:02 Join B4gder [0] (
08:20:34LinusNamiconn: i think it could very well skip to next/prev
08:21:39amiconnYes, that's what I think too
08:22:09amiconnThe playlist is laid out the same way as in other modes (repeat all / none etc) it shouldn't be a big problem to implement this
08:38:32LinusNthe problem is that the playlist only contains that one file
08:38:41amiconnNo, it doesn't
08:39:39LinusNthen it would be simple to fix
08:39:49amiconnIf you start an arbitrary track in a dir, the playlist is built like in any other mode
08:40:02LinusNok great
08:40:22amiconnIt's only that the playback engine buffers the same track again and again
08:43:48LinusNhmmm, get_next_index() in playlist.c handles this
08:44:41amiconnI found a second precision problem in the playtime calculation. For cbr tracks with no info header, in addition to using the rounded-down frametime, the code derives the framecount from the filesize and the frame size
08:44:43LinusNbut it seems the same function is used for both skip-to-next and repeat
08:45:11amiconnHowever, the frame size isn't constant in a cbr file, because there are padded and unpadded frames
08:45:26amiconnHowever, fixing this is simple
08:45:31LinusNhow do you suggest we handle that?
08:45:53amiconn...even without my rework of mp3headerinfo()
08:46:06amiconnI already did it, just need to test
08:46:32amiconnI used the bitrate, since the bitrate is always exact for cbr files
08:46:48amiconnfiletime = filesize * 8 / bitrate
08:47:07amiconnSince our bitrate is in kbps, this automatically delivers milliseconds
08:47:21amiconn...and the final formula looks a bit different:
08:47:41amiconnfiletime = ((filesize - bytecount) / bitrate) * 8
08:48:47amiconnDoing the *8 afterwards looses a bit of precision (max. 7 milliseconds), but avoids an overflow
08:49:22LinusNfair enough
08:49:42amiconn...and the bytecount thing takes the tag size(s) into account
08:50:25amiconnFor mpeg audio, we could use filetime = ((filesize - bytecount) / (bitrate / 8)) and it would be exact, because the mpeg bitrates are always multiples of 8,
08:50:48amiconnbut that doesn't necessarily hold for other formats

11:15:30preglowso, the nano has yet another portalplayer revision
11:15:39B4gderyes, looks like that
11:16:01preglowall these bloody revisions will be a major pain
11:16:15preglowbut well have to face that anyway, somehow
11:16:23preglowlike with iaudio having more iram than iriver
11:18:25Zagorwell we can find out that in the datasheets. not so with the portalplayer versions...
11:18:54preglowindeed, but still, the ipodlinux guys have figured out much, so its not impossible
11:19:10preglowitll just be tons more work, heh
11:19:27preglowtheres also the two cores
11:19:38preglowi dont know how much work thatll be to embed into rockbow
11:19:41preglowrockbox, even
11:19:49preglowbut id absolutely love for ipod to be a target
11:21:42LinusNdevelopment on ipod will probably be a really uphill struggle
11:21:55LinusNand a totally clueless user base
11:22:03LinusNnot my idea of fun
11:22:21Zagoryeh, i was gonna say that. imagine the many strange questions we get now, and multiply by 100
11:22:52Zagorstill, we'd attract a fair amount of new developers too
11:22:52preglowi believe most ipod users will stick to apples firmware
11:22:54LinusNwe tripled the cluelessness when we moved to iriver
11:23:16LinusNbut moving to ipod will be 100x worse
11:23:34preglowwhat do you base that upon?
11:23:46preglowi think ipod users are far more satisfied with their firmware than iriver users was
11:23:50Zagorpreglow: I believe many ipod users would flame us for doubting the supremacy of apple
11:24:04LinusN"pearls for swine"
11:24:26preglowremember, were not doing this for the apple users
11:24:32preglowwere doing this to get a platform that is videly available
11:24:42preglowall of our current platforms are very hard to get
11:24:46preglowand then, only used
11:24:58amiconnpreglow: That's not correct.
11:25:04LinusNimho, ipod users don't care about having a superior firmware
11:25:10Zagorwe're not at all grumpy old men. not in the least... ;-)
11:25:20preglowLinusN: agreed
11:25:21amiconnI bougt an Ondio FM this month. New. Shrink-wrapped.
11:25:28LinusNthen they wouldn't have bought an ipod in the first place
11:25:46preglowthen im happy my point again is that were not doing this for the users
11:26:48preglowstill, i agree itll be a tough port
11:27:12preglowbut the iriver port too required quite a bit work
11:27:29CoCoLUSpast tense?
11:28:07preglowthe biggest part of the work lies behind us, yes
11:28:43CoCoLUSdepends on what you consider "work" - getting it to run or getting it to run so that misticriver-users won't complain
11:28:54amiconnThe iriver playback engine still has many bugs and quirks...
11:29:51LinusNthe iriver port has been pretty straightforward, since we have the data sheets
11:29:53preglowCoCoLUS: to me it doesnt exactly seem like we have catered exceptionally much to mr
11:30:30preglowLinusN: yes, and since ipodlinux works, id expect them to have the info thats needed anyway
11:30:42preglownot in a comprehensive source, of course...
11:31:12amiconnIs there an open-source tollchain available?
11:31:23preglowfor arm, oh yes
11:31:25preglowgcc does arm
11:32:12ZagorI would welcome an ipod port. I probably won't start working on one myself, though.
11:32:14amiconnAh, yes.
11:32:28amiconnThere are some different arm core versions I guess?
11:32:36preglowyes, but the arm core itself is the same
11:32:42preglowthe portalplayer interface part isnt
11:32:44amiconnAre all of these supported by gcc and binutils?
11:32:46Zagorit's arm7
11:32:52preglowbut thats just a ifdef/define job
11:33:02amiconnThen we need to support dual-core.
11:33:12amiconnI imagine this being not too difficult
11:33:23preglowme neither, but i have no concrete idea of how to do it either, heh
11:33:51amiconnEach core could have its own thread scheduler, and create_thread() would specify the core to use
11:34:15preglowat least the codec part will be easier, tons of codecs are already optimised for arm
11:34:25preglowlike musepack, libmad, tremor
11:34:30amiconnThis simple approach doesn't do load balancing, but it would be a simple solution
11:34:57preglowamiconn: i think dedicating one of the cores to the codecs, and the other to everything else will do
11:35:00ZagorI'd say load balancing stands to odds with power conservation
11:35:22Zagorpreglow: me too
11:36:03preglowdoing a proper scheduler will require a bit of work
11:36:09amiconnpreglow: Yes, sounds like a good split. Still, having the same thread scheduler on both cores will probably ease porting
11:36:09preglowand its not needed
11:36:19preglowamiconn: agreed
11:36:36preglowbut im needed elsewhere now

12:44:01rasherWell first of all, the genrename appears to come from Dutch, where it is not insulting at all
12:44:23rasherSecond, a genrename is not insulting. Insults are insulting
12:44:37rasherWe include the genres because that's what other implementations have.

23:18:50bluebrother^so the volume was supposed to change (if I understood this correctly)
23:19:14bluebrother^the status bar displayed a changed volume but it didn't change until I changed it.
23:19:53bluebrother^or do I need to call something else?
23:19:56linuxstb__I also think the keep_playing variable should be made static and checked at the start of radio_screen to prevent re-initialising the tuner.
23:20:48bluebrother^I also was a bit curious about that. This way the radio always gets re-initialized on entering the fm, isn't it?
23:21:09linuxstb__Yes, I think so. But I'm just as new to this code as you are.
23:21:21bluebrother^ah, ok.
23:22:16amiconnlinuxstb__: I don't think this would be a good idea. It may need additional measures once an iriver radio bug gets fixed. The radio should stop playing as soon as audio file playback is started
23:22:35amiconnbluebrother^: Just setting the global settings variable doesn't change anything

23:34:50bluebrother^is there some better testing solution than repeating connect - copy - disconnect - try?
23:35:55linuxstb__Don't think so - unless you have a BDM attached.
23:38:08amiconnlinuxstb__: Maybe, I'm not entirely sure. I tried on my shiny new Ondio FM. There is a slight pop both when leaving the radio screen and when re-entering with the radio playing, but in both cases the volume is muted for a short time
23:40:12amiconnThis short mute is easy to understand. The MAS is reinitialised in both cases (to recording mode when entering the radio screen and to playback mode when leaving it)
23:40:41amiconnOn iriver there is no mute, but interestingly I also get the volume difference between radio screen and menu
23:41:29linuxstb__I'm certain I can't hear any volume change.
23:41:46linuxstb__I've got a H140.
23:42:41bluebrother^amiconn: I added a sound_set(SOUND_VOLUME, global_settings.volume); right after the radio_set stuff. Now I can't hear any difference anymore.
23:43:10amiconnH140 here as well
23:43:43linuxstb__Can you think of any settings that would cause a volume change?
23:45:10amiconnlinuxstb__: Do you use flat tone control, or do you have some treble/bass boost enabled?
23:45:52amiconnThat's it
23:46:14amiconnWith treble/bass boost != 0 there is a volume change, with flat settings it doesn't happen
23:46:30amiconnI guess pcmrec_set_mux(1); fiddles with the prescaler...
23:47:12linuxstb__That's it - if I boost the treble, I can hear a volume change.
23:50:55linuxstb__Going back to presets for a moment, is there a reason why the "add preset" menu option is simply called "Add", and not something more specific like "Add preset"?

23:53:11linuxstb__There always is a reason in Rockbox :)
23:53:37amiconnThe menu string is a re-use from the soft-button string of the FM recorder, and that has to be short.
23:54:25amiconnBasically, having the presets in the menu was a hack for the Ondio
23:54:56linuxstb__I'm starting to realise that. I now know why Linus didn't implement presets.
23:55:08amiconnI hope the we do the Right Thing (tm) and thoroughly check all strings once localisation v2 gets added
23:55:29amiconnBagder? ;)
23:55:59BagderI'll commit the first stuff after the 2.5 release
23:57:25linuxstb__The On button is free in the radio screen, so I think that should bring up the list of presets. The choice is then to either have an <add preset> option in the list of presets, or an "Add preset" option in the radio menu.
