#rockbox log for 2006-02-10

00:00:10ts|goneah ok, what did you do then?
00:00:32Shadowarrior13Ah, there it is.
00:01:42lostlogichmm... doesn't attempt settings save @ < 10%
00:02:10stevebts|gone: i wasnt identified when i joined so i assume he saw that
00:02:12 Quit Kohlrabi ("Fast alle Menschen sind Regenwürmer")
00:02:20ts|gone[23:59:36] <@ts|gone> maybe your client registerd it when he joined w/o the cloak?
00:02:35ts|gonesteveb: If you ever use Xchat... check out this script:
00:02:45stevebi will never use xchat
00:02:56stevebthats a given.
00:02:57ts|goneit stops the channel from getting hilighted on "* someone is away"
00:03:10stevebthere are irssi scripts for things like that
00:03:20stevebi have one that bans on away messages
00:03:44ts|goneon my net we code bots for that... but that's because it's a very tech-related net :)
00:03:49stevebirssi is the best irc client. ever.
00:08:21lostlogich3x0 and h1x0 have the same basic power management problems, right?
00:10:36lostlogicthe player has a habit of suddenly shutting down when the battery is lowish
00:10:40lostlogicfor no really good reason
00:11:32lostlogicdpassen1: I'll have to either get the submitter to do some work on this patch, or do some myself... full of good ideas, but not the best execution.
00:11:52dpassen1I'm just glad steps are being taken.
00:12:05dpassen1This is the only 'issue' I still have with RockBox on my 120.
00:12:07steveblostlogic: is the fact that the battery is low not a good enough reason?
00:12:17 Quit Henrico ("gtkBitchX: the ONLY IRC client on Viagra!")
00:12:55Shadowarrior13Ok, that was a complete failure. Time to try again.
00:13:31lostlogicsteveb: no good reason to me is because the battery is not at a critical level...
00:13:58lostlogicthe problem is that LiIon has major voltage fluctiations under heavy current draw as it gets even moderately low.
00:17:13Shadowarrior13Yay, blue screen.,

00:32:37XavierGrwell it is better than the Devkit, lol
00:32:40Shadowarrior13But I'm using it. and I'm stupid at programming/compiling.
00:32:55Shadowarrior13Which is why I suck at life.
00:33:18XavierGrone thing at a time. At first I couldn't compile it myself
00:33:48Shadowarrior13Dude, do you already have it compiled?
00:34:02Shadowarrior13I'm just gonna start bitching around for a precompiled version.
00:34:17XavierGrwhat are you trying to compile?
00:34:20XavierGrI mean which target
00:34:45XavierGrdid you read the how to set up a cygwin environment?

00:37:59XavierGrdelete the whole cygwin folder and start again. (I hope you kept the packages)
00:38:38Shadowarrior13Is that what I think it is?

01:12:02Shadowarrior13No daily build for the 5G.

01:25:35JdGordonwho went and cleaned out the patch tracker?
01:25:57kkurbjunXavierGr: I don't understand the question
01:26:02XavierGrit is down at the moment.
01:26:26XavierGr[02:22] Gursikh: hey Paul_The_Nerd, the original creator of the patch has updated it on the tracker (just for your information)
01:26:35XavierGrI thought it said it about the midi plugin
01:26:53GursikhXavierGr: oh no sorry, the mactidy/disktidy plugin
01:27:07XavierGranyway kkburjun any optimizations in it?
01:27:15Gursikhoh, it's gone now...
01:27:54kkurbjunyes, a few, most of the work was in getting output inside rockbox though. Not much needed to be done to get it playing realtime
01:28:17XavierGrso you think you can make it realtime?
01:28:19kkurbjunI would like to use it in doom if I can ever get the two paired fast enough
01:28:36kkurbjunit is realtime on most of the files I tested
01:28:49XavierGralso does it now play the file or it will just export the audio in a wav file?
01:29:42kkurbjunanyway, I have to go, hopefully later tonight I'll be able to put an update for doom online. It plays the file; no wav writing.
01:29:55XavierGrnice indeed!
01:30:23XavierGrDo you think that you will optimize it more? Is the playback at 44.1Khz?
01:32:09kkurbjunthe playback is at 11025 now. I couldn't tell much of a difference between that and 22050 so I stepped it down. I think the patches are in 11025Hz anyway. I would like to optimize it more, but we'll see. The goal for me is to be able to use it in doom.
01:32:09 Quit Febs ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
01:32:52XavierGrI remember a great degrade in audio in 11025. But I will test your patch to see for myself
01:34:01kkurbjunXavierGr: I wasn't testing with wav recording so I'm sure the difference could be much more noticable, eitherway, I was looking to make the plugin at least work on the target
01:34:07XavierGrkkurbjun: I got an error on compile time. What's your target?
01:34:30kkurbjunwhat's the error?

01:35:11kkurbjunoh, I forgot about the doom patch
01:35:28kkurbjunit needs the same patch to cvs that doom needs
01:35:47kkurbjunyou can just make the printf an empty function if you want to get it working

02:18:10T-canwhen is Apple gunna release sourcecode, thats what i wanT!!!
02:18:27T-cani do like a lot of the features on IPL
02:18:47T-canand there 4g version on IPL has been around for a awhile and is very stable
02:19:31midkaywhat sort of features?
02:20:09KensirI'm too lazy to compile source...I'm off to restore this thing
02:20:38Kensirfor the 5g
02:20:43Kensirthey dont have the
02:20:58Kensirand im not compiling the source myself
02:21:03midkayfreshly compiled
02:21:11T-canwell, im not sure what rockbox has for features, but i reall like the appereance settings on IPL
02:21:16midkayfrom an hour or so ago, was for someone else but they left.. *shrugs*
02:21:26T-canalong with batt tweaks, fonts
02:21:28Paul_The_NerdMan, everyone with their "I like pretty more than feature rich"
02:21:29Kensirwell im now that special someone
02:21:30*Paul_The_Nerd mutters.
02:21:41T-canwheel sense. adjustment
02:21:51midkayKensir, exactly :)
02:22:09T-canplus everything in file browser
02:22:35T-canbut like i said, i have no clue what rockbox has for features so they might have some of this stuff
02:23:05Paul_The_NerdMost of the Rockbox features are listed at the site.
02:23:38Paul_The_NerdAnd mainly relate to things like "Parametric Equalizer" "Replaygain" "Gapless playback" etc.
02:23:43T-canthe only REAL complaint i have about IPL is the whole sleep/turn on/reboot deal and when you are playing a song, pressing Menu to go back to view artists or whatever will stop playback of the song
02:24:02Paul_The_NerdAnd the wide variety of formats supported
02:24:54T-cananyone have a features list for rockbox, i cant seem to find one on their site
02:25:11midkayT-can, in the end there's a lot more I believe, maybe some stuff isn't working yet, but it's just starting out for ipods
02:25:44midkayT-can, - no ipod column though
02:25:52midkaygives you an idea, basically the same between iriver and ipod
02:25:59Paul_The_NerdIt's also a little bit out of date.
02:26:11Paul_The_NerdBut, close enough
02:28:00T-canyou can load another firmware without rebooting??
02:28:03T-canthats pretty cool
02:28:22midkayanother rockbox firmware..
02:28:26Paul_The_NerdWell, right now that doesn't work on iPod
02:29:01Paul_The_NerdTheoretically it could allow you to launch Linux from Rockbox, but right now because of the way the memory is remapped, you can't even load rockbox from within itself I believe. RoLo needs some adaption I've been told
02:29:58Paul_The_NerdBut it can be used to test out changes easily, on the players it works with
02:30:21T-canso people have already successfully put it on 4g BW right?
02:31:00Paul_The_NerdI remember a small change was needed for the contrast, but I think that's in CVS now.
02:31:07T-canya, same with IPL
02:31:29Paul_The_NerdWell, the default had just been set too low
02:31:52T-candoes rockbox have the batt and CPU tweak?
02:32:20Paul_The_NerdA) Define "batt and CPU tweak"
02:33:50T-canbatt tweak shows millivolt draw of batt where batt meter would be
02:34:10T-canCPU tweak shows a rough estimate of CPU usage
02:34:29T-canthese were both availible through ipodwizard
02:34:46Paul_The_NerdOn the iRiver players, the processor is run at a relatively slow speed (~1/3 of the maximum speed) and it's boosted up when necessary. Something similar will probably be done on iPod, but hasn't been implemented yet.
02:34:57BHSPitLappyyou can't even see the battery power in ipod
02:35:01BHSPitLappyin rockbox, that is
02:35:07BHSPitLappy(for the ipod)
02:35:17Paul_The_NerdIt's just a matter of "nobody's bothered"
02:35:21Paul_The_NerdSince all the code is there.
02:35:24Paul_The_NerdFrom iPod linux.
02:36:01T-canya, im pretty sure both of the tweaks are hidden somewhere in ipod strings
02:36:04BHSPitLappyT-can: have you started trying to install
02:36:15T-cani was just about to ask if i should
02:36:22BHSPitLappyT-can: actually, they're mostly pretty unimpressive tweaks.
02:36:28T-canya, i know
02:36:40Paul_The_NerdT-can: Well, Rockbox has nothing to do with the original firmware, so it's really not related in any way to things like "the battery tweak"
02:36:41T-canbut i think at least the batt tweak is more accurate than the meter
02:36:59BHSPitLappyfor example,'disable seep sleep mode' works by screwing up a file that it checks before deep sleeping
02:37:08T-cani see
02:37:38BHSPitLappygo ahead and start messing with rockbox though
02:37:40T-canso for installing rockbox, i think im just gunna delete all IPL files then just re-update apple firmware
02:37:51BHSPitLappywait what?
02:37:56BHSPitLappyleave linux alone, numbnuts
02:38:05BHSPitLappyand your firmware
02:38:13jaebirdAre people still waiting on me??
02:38:38T-cancan i leave IPL on and still install RB?
02:39:15T-canand ipod would work with 3 OS's on it????
02:39:16BHSPitLappyall you're lined up to do is make_fw yourself another firmware partition
02:39:22T-canok ok ok
02:39:23BHSPitLappymine does :)
02:39:40BHSPitLappydo you have make_fw sitting around?
02:39:57BHSPitLappyyou can get it from rockbox's site too, then
02:40:02BHSPitLappybut they call it ipod_fw here
02:40:24BHSPitLappyalso, since the 4G's so new you might be stuck building rockbox yourself, from cvs
02:41:07Paul_The_NerdBHSPitLappy: One thing, he needs a clean boot partition to start from, unless he's using iPodLoader2 and just wants to continue with that.
02:42:28XavierGrsomeone inform safetydan that even if I launch rockboxui.exe with −−background the remote screen isn't displayed
02:42:30jaebirdhey I'm going to make B4gder a 4g 2bpp pic for the daily there an original somewhere for the color...the one online is really small.
02:46:03T-cancan anyone validate the claim that IPL eats up more battery then rockbox?
02:46:45 Quit Kensir ()
02:47:49Paul_The_NerdT-can: I'd be surprised if it did. Right now Rockbox runs one processor at full speed constantly. On a Nano, Rockbox gets about 7.5 hours of playback, if that's in any way helpful.
02:49:46T-cando you know what nano is rated for for hours of playback?
02:50:08Paul_The_NerdApple advertises at 14 as a maximum.
02:50:32Paul_The_NerdBut, bear in mind, my test was with Q8 (256kbps) Ogg, theirs is with 128kbps AAC.

04:11:43T-canright right

04:12:19jaebirdit is not supposed to replace apple_os.bin

04:12:57jaebirdthe rockboot.bin is what you put onto the pod

05:05:54CoasterMasterI've got an interesting problem with the iPod Nano port and I was wondering if anyone else had it.
05:06:07midkayCoasterMaster, let's hear it..
05:06:57CoasterMasterIf I plug the pod into my computer, it detects fine. When I copy MP3s over, they transfer as fast as they should (taking only a couple of seconds). If I copy Rockbox files (I'm loading the latest daily build on right now), it goes a lot slower. To transfer this build of Rockbox, it is taking about 10 minutes.
05:07:45 Quit Jungti1234 ()
05:08:59midkayCoasterMaster, i've got that too, not nearly ten minutes, but it takes considerably longer, i'm fairly sure due to the large number of small files to be copied (thus more need to be created), instead of just fewer larger files.
05:09:13midkayno so much data transferring as creating new files

10:32:53peturnot easy to do it right
10:33:21peturMmmm already offers a build with it in the forums - the cliplight that is
10:33:40Membrilloah fair enough. so if clipping occurs you couldnt just lower gain by say one DB?
10:34:03petursomething to think about :)
10:34:32Membrillono rush :) but that would be the biggest feature of recording to me if it was implemented
10:34:59Membrillono point doing it if its not done right though
10:35:22peturthe problem is that one spike of (example) somebody hitting the mic could cause the gain to drop and ruin the recording

12:32:03Papricakkurbjun, the doom with the sound is realllllllllllly nice
12:32:43Zoide777linuxstb: hey, I found out that the wavpack skipping problem has nothing to do with the encoder version... Regardless of whether they're encoded w/ version 4.1 or 4.3.1, files compressed normally play flawlessly, while files with high compression (-h flag) stutter
12:32:53LinusNlinuxstb: implementing that, and adapting the rest of the rockbox code to use it requires some work
12:33:22Zoide777fortunately, I also discovered that files compressed with the -x:6 option are almost as small as the -h ones, but they don't stutter in rockbox :)
12:33:23preglowZoide777: ipod?
12:33:32preglowZoide777: known issue
12:33:34linuxstbLinusN: I know - that's why I was hoping there was a volunteer...
12:33:45preglowwavpack needs optimising on ipods
12:34:03preglowluckily, the wavpack coder has an ipod now...
12:34:08LinusNlinuxstb: i actually started that work, but was interrupted
12:34:38Zoide777the only downside is that encoding w/ -x:6 is *very* slow, but once you've encoded it the decoding is fine (they call it assymetric b/c the complexity of encoding & decoding can be so different)
12:35:48preglowa bit weird that -h files should struggle so on ipod
12:36:04linuxstbI tested a -h file on my h140, and it decoded with about 30%-40% boost.
12:36:26preglowspace savings?
12:37:52Zoide777I say if you're willing to wait a good while to encode, then -x:6 is the best, since it's almost as small as -h but doesn't decode slowly like -h does
12:38:01linuxstbThe -h file was 12,049,023 bytes, and the normal was 12,185,320
12:38:20linuxstbSo negligible imo.
12:38:43Zoide777for some files the difference between -h and no flag is bigger, though
12:38:56preglowwe'll support them sooner or later, don't worry
12:40:01linuxstbZoide777: Can you remind me which ipod you have?
12:40:12Zoide777Is there a way of accelerating the scroll wheel when browsing through the file list? It seems like right now it has a fixed speed that applies to both menus and the file list, correct?
12:40:16Zoide7774g grayscale
12:40:21preglowgod, how i don't look forward to codecs on the 3g and less devices
12:40:28preglowit'll be a bloody nightmare
12:40:32linuxstbDo you get any problems when running the Apple firmware?
12:40:41linuxstb(like a corrupted display)
12:40:48Zoide777the display is inverted, and there is a bar on the left
12:41:06Zoide777iirc the "bar" is more like a gap where you can see the rockbox text behind
12:41:19preglowi used to have that on nano before i fixed the driver
12:41:43linuxstbSo there's probably still bugs in the lcd code then.
12:41:44Zoide777for some reason, though, the Apple display has no problems when the ipod is connected to the usb port
12:41:50Zoide777(ie. for transferring files)
12:42:04linuxstbThat will be because it enters disk mode before running the Rockbox bootloader.
12:42:16linuxstbThe Rockbox bootloader is obviously doing something bad to the LCD.
12:43:08Zoide777this might be a very stupid question, but is there a way to make rockbox sleep as opposed to completely shutting down and starting up every time?
12:43:44preglownot for now
12:45:01Zoide777it seems that Rockbox boots much more slowly with the most recent build than with the ones from a couple days ago or so
12:45:43linuxstbMaybe it's your settings - are you using a complicated WPS with bitmaps?
12:46:23Zoide777it's the one with the dancing happy faces... hehe
12:46:32Zoide777the thing is that most of the other ones don't quite work
12:47:00linuxstbsleep mode isn't important to me - Rockbox boots fast enough for it to just be a waste of power. And with auto-resume, it behaves like a sleep.
12:48:16linuxstbZoide777: Can you try changing your WPS back to the default, and seeing if that makes a difference to your boot speed?
12:50:02 Join DarthLappy [0] (
12:50:06Zoide777I'll do that as soon as I can. For now I'm transferring some songs to my ipod and it's going pretty slow. I think it's not rockbox's fault though, since I'm converting some wavpacks from -h to -x6, and it slows down everything
12:52:03Zoide777is there a way of adding custom fonts? I like using the unicode font for Chinese songs, etc. but it's a bit too big
12:52:33markunThe fonts are converted from BDF files
12:52:55markunYou can also convert true type fonts to BDF, but they usually don't look very good reckons October for the wifIpod, which means i'll have to play the waiting game AGAIN!

13:01:47tucozHi, sorry for being lazy. But, how do I create a patch where several new directories were added and images are included in those?
13:02:34B4gderdiff -ruN [olddir] [newdir] perhaps
13:02:45linuxstbDoes that work with binary files?
13:02:54B4gderah, I guess not
13:03:08B4gderpatch and binary is no good pair
13:03:21linuxstbI would just zip up the images, and create a patch for everything else.
13:03:34B4gderI agree
13:03:34tucozHow are wps's patched? I though we have to figure out some way to make additions to the manual
13:04:21tucozSome convenient way for people to create patches, and include images.
13:04:36B4gderthere is none, afaik
13:05:24tucozhmm, what will happen with the binary files if I run cvs diff? Will it ignore binary files?
13:05:39Zoide777linuxstb: the default wps does indeed boot faster. thanks.
13:07:16Zoide777linuxstb: meanwhile it seems that something must be wrong with DancePuffDuo, since it took > 2 minutes to load (by groing to Browse Themes after booting with the default)
13:08:01tucozanyway. Henrico has posted a new manual source tree on the tracker. I think the directory structure looks nice. That is the image directories. Some screenshots for the h1xx plugins are included as well.
13:08:31Zoide777actually, iAmp is also taking forever to load

13:11:21linuxstbWPS loading is generally quite slow (due to the large number of tiny bitmaps), but I don't think anyone's complained that it takes > 2 minutes before. About 5 seconds is normal - less on some players.
13:12:02preglowiamp loads pretty fast here
13:12:04preglowcouple of secs

15:22:17muesli__and the 3rd is not very clear, is it 44/49?
15:22:19linuxstbB4gder: I'm not sure. As there are no developers with a 4g grayscale, it's possibly a good idea to build everything.
15:24:10XavierGrhaha sometimes I have trouble to recognise black from red (in great distance though) that means I have Protanomaly
15:24:38preglowlinuxstb: all boils down to the fact that the clickwheels don't have feedback of any kind, so you can't use it blindly
15:24:39XavierGrthere are better tests. Those with the circles

15:57:27linuxstbDoes the server have two CPUs?
15:58:02preglowtook you long enough!
16:01:53XavierGrwhy do you keep the sim32 builds? I thought the reason to switch over to SDL was to get rid of X11 and w32
16:02:53LinusNXavierGr: you can still build the sdl sim on both win32 and linux
16:03:59XavierGryes, that's why I asked why win32 sims are build in the build table.
16:03:59preglowfortunately, the code base should be virtually identical
16:04:19XavierGrwhy not just build the SDL only (in the daily builds)
16:04:47LinusNi believe there are still quite a few differences

17:55:29fairwayit's just a matter of performance now
17:56:03fairwayone could use a seperate thread for the user interactions (menu scrollings etc) running on the 2nd cpu
17:58:29linuxstbBattery status is fairly important. But yes, apart from that it's mainly performance.
17:58:57linuxstbBattery life is also an issue - which is why I'm not in any rush to start using the second cpu.
17:59:26linuxstbIMO, the aim should be to get Rockbox working comfortably on a single CPU.
17:59:51linuxstbWe could use the second CPU only when extra power is needed - e.g. playing games whilst listening to music, or maybe video decoding in the future.

19:49:23tucozHmm, there will be lot's of directories under each chapter
19:49:54tucozone dir for each resolution-bit-depth, and one dir for each target. I am not sure what is the best.
19:49:54Henricoyes, it is easier to just copy the h300 to the ipod
19:50:53tucozIt is definitley easier from the writing-point-of-view.

19:56:14 Join damaki [0] (
19:56:19Henricothat's right, but still small compared to a flac.
19:56:23linuxstb_Henrico: I disagree that one directory per target is more simple. I think it's more important for writers to be aware of what differences there are between the targets, so the text is appropriate.
19:56:29NicoFRi just added one line at what seems the right place
19:56:32NicoFRi'll make a patch
19:57:33linuxstb_For example, if the .tex file refers to \generic\screenshot.png, then writers know that that screen is the same everywhere. But if the .tex refers to \platform\screenshot.png, then there are differences that may need to be taken care of in the text.
19:57:41Henricolinuxstb_: but instead of 8 image directories, you get 12+
19:58:08 Join Thus0__ [0] (
19:58:10linuxstb_Yes, but it will also be more logically organised - 12+ smaller directories instead of 8 larger directories.
19:58:50Henricoare the generic screenshots (filebrowser?) really the same across platforms?
19:59:25linuxstb_Yes - if the LCD size is the same, I would guess that about 90% of the screenshots will be the same.
19:59:51tucozOne part of me wants a image directory for each chapter, but the other part says that it will be a lot of directories

20:02:30Papricahehehe ;]
20:03:00Henricoso we get at least three levels of pictures: generic, resolution specific and platform specific?
20:03:27tucozno, only two. resolution-bitdepth and platform
20:03:40linuxstb_No, I'm just suggesting two. \generic will map to a resolution-specific directory.
20:04:16HenricoOK, any suggestions for the names for these generic directories?
20:04:50tucozlinuxstb, what do you think of getting_started/main.tex as the structure for the directories?
20:05:18linuxstb_Do you need subdirectories for each chapter?
20:05:30tucozwith images?
20:05:36linuxstb_Why not just one .tex file for each chapter, and a shared image directory?
20:05:55Henricofor the plugins it would be nice to have all files in one subdirectory.
20:06:16tucozyes, one tex file for each chapter and the chapter folder name as getting_started for instance

20:24:28Henricoyou can tell LaTeX your preferences for a figure, like [h] for here

20:25:16 Join Nilisco [0] (
20:25:34josh_tucoz: [!h] means "put it right here, and I mean it". other values can be used to get floating figures.
20:25:53josh_e.g. a [t] figure will float to the top of the next page with room
20:25:56safetydanXavierGr, fixed that remote drawing with background issue in the SDL sim
20:26:54tucozjosh_, yes, but that is not really true. The [!h] will only tell latex to try as hard as it can to place it there, but we are not guaranteed that it ends up there.
20:27:13josh_tucoz: what are you expecting?
20:27:19tucozThat is my experience after all.
20:27:26Henricoand if a screenshot cannot be put here in a figure, chances are neither can LaTeX without a figure.
20:27:27josh_if there's not enough room left on the page for a figure, there's no way to make it fit...
20:27:36josh_Henrico: huh?
20:28:04tucozI think we should go for a figure environment
20:28:05HenricoI mean, if you just use includegraphics, it gets inlined.
20:28:28josh_Henrico: yes, but if there's not enough room on the current page it won't squeeze to fit or anything...
20:28:45josh_I'm pretty sure [!h] tries "hard enough" for most purposes.

20:41:26tucozalthough it sounds like a good idea to be able to have the possibility to only include the recording section for recording targets, I am not sure we need to be that specific in a manual.
20:42:08Henricoif we want that, then we need a platform for every build target
20:43:09tucozbut we could define a macro like haverecording and make that map to the targets that have recording
20:43:50Henricoyes, but the recorderv2 and recorderfm are now one platform
20:44:01linuxstbIMO, there should be manual for each build target - it just seems simpler.
20:44:31Henricoyes, then we can define macros for all relevant properties.

22:28:22preglow24 bits + sign
22:28:28preglowand what i want to use is 28 bits + sign
22:28:34preglowwhich leaves three bits of headroom
22:28:39preglowwhich should be enough

22:34:47lostlogicMikachu: oh yes, I know voice sources use much lower sample rates

22:35:34preglowlostlogic: yes, that's enough
22:35:48preglowlostlogic: basically, the sample rate just decides the highest frequency you want to reproduce
22:35:59lostlogichmm, so with a sample rate that is roughly double the highest frequency of sound that a human can perceive, transients within those frequencies are stil lrelatively reproduceable?
22:36:02preglowlostlogic: and ~20khz is enough for human hearing, so they just selected something a bit above that
22:36:11Mikachuyou can only reproduce half the sample rate
22:36:16Mikachuaccording to the nyquist theorem at least
22:36:28lostlogicwhee, learning!

22:38:33preglowdigital processing will, unless you're using really basic stuff, introduce frequencies that are higher than the nyquist frequency, and since those can't exist in a sampled signal, they're aliased down on other frequencies

22:56:31preglownot that i know of :/
22:56:40BHSPitMonkeyyou could make some

22:56:49Mikachuthere are some fonts in xorg, but they _only_ have japanese chars
22:56:53lostlogicpreglow: figure termor out yet?
22:56:56Mikachuor only doublewidth at any rate
22:57:17Mikachuis it possible to combine the 6x13 font with the 12x13 doublewidth font into a single rockbox font?
22:57:18preglowlostlogic: no... it's a mess

22:58:44lostlogicpreglow: hmm, going to 29bit would lead to more bits of actual data in the output, with the lowest 4 that you add being most likely invalid / irrelevent information, right?
22:58:49Mikachumarkun: you're my hero
22:58:56preglowlostlogic: yea
22:59:13preglowlostlogic: but not in all codecs, both libmad and libmusepack will have all 28 bits relevant

22:59:45lostlogic*nod* is it a property of vorbis that no more than 24 bits ar erelevent or a property of Tremor?
23:00:22Mikachumarkun: convbdf -f -o 6+12x13.fnt 6+12x13.bdf is the correct command?
23:00:33preglowlostlogic: tremor, i guess
23:00:47preglowlostlogic: you can pretty much have as much precision as you want in codecs like that
23:00:55preglowsince the audio is resynthesized
23:00:57markunMikachu: you don't even need the -o 6+12x13.fnt
23:01:08preglowlostlogic: won't help you, though, since that's not where the quality loss is

23:01:50Mikachumarkun: okay, seems to work fine (only tried one file so far)
23:01:52preglowyou can resynthesize the waveform to be as high-res as you want, it won't matter since the waveform isn't the exact audio
23:02:09preglowit's just an approximation with flaws you'll hear
23:02:44Mikachumarkun: thanks again :)
23:03:00lostlogicright −− so vorbis (most codecs?) use smoothing algorithms as they resynthesize it any way?
23:03:11markunMikachu: I can commit it later
23:03:26Mikachuthis is working a lot better than ipl :)
23:03:35Mikachui haven't got doom to work in rockbox yet though ;)
23:04:38mozetti_me neither
23:04:42preglowlostlogic: any "smoothing" is intrinsic to whatever resynthesizing method is used
23:04:45mozetti_i can't get past the loading screen
23:04:50preglowthere is no smoothing as a separate post process
23:05:30preglowthe resynthesizing works by reconstructing the original wave from mathematical functions (sines), which you can syntesize with as good a precision as you want
23:05:44preglowthat's where the "infinite" precision comes from
23:06:27lostlogicahhh, this is beginning to make more sense to me...
23:06:44lostlogicas to why we spend so much IRAM storing SINCOS lookup tables
23:07:07Mikachudoes the anti-skip buffer do anything on the nano?
23:07:14preglowthe mdct is what does the resynthesizing
23:07:30preglowthe other major part of tremor is the spectrum reconstruction
23:07:50preglowMikachu: myeah, it shouldn't matter since the nano has no disk-spinup time
23:07:55preglowMikachu: we'll remove options like that as we go
23:07:57lostlogicso it's kinda like regenerating the varios parts of many differnet sine waves to biuld the wave form, and then giving them loudness with the floor and residue parts or some such?
23:08:10Mikachui just thought it would be a tiny bit faster to not move the data twice
23:08:30preglowlostlogic: the floor and residue is combined to generate the loudness function, yes
23:08:36Mikachuare many of the devs swedish?
