00:00:10XavierGrnad teel us if it fixed the battery issue
00:00:30XavierGrwow you are the 100th guest here ashridah!
00:00:55Bagder101 actually
00:01:01JdGordonwe r busy today :)
00:01:15XavierGrhmm it is 100 fo me.
00:01:30XavierGrah 101 with the OP?
00:01:39Mode"#rockbox -o Bagder " by Bagder (
00:01:45muesli__101..nice concert..
00:01:50XavierGryou got me.
00:02:09XavierGrthen elinenbe was 100th...
00:02:17JdGordonLinusN: is the min and max db value #defined sopmehwer for each target?
00:02:36*XavierGr wonders how elinenbe's name is spelled....
00:02:59 Quit Henrico ("[BX] Bender uses gtkBitchX. Bite my shiny metal ass!")

00:04:48elinenbeI've been around here forever....
00:04:49XavierGrelinenbe: with all those "e" I am not sure which one is like the "e" in BED or like the "e" in ME
00:04:54XavierGrso which is which?
00:05:21elinenbeE Linenberg
00:05:38XavierGrah that makes sense
00:05:40elinenbehowever you want to pronounce it is fine with me...
00:06:14muesli__febs name is nice ;-)
00:06:59ZoricHi, does anyone now how I can scan and add replaygain tags to my mp3s on linux?
00:08:06ZoricI tried using normalize-audio which is in the Ubuntu repos, but it doesnt seem to write the tags so that rockbox understands them...
00:10:11Musicmadwhat do you know - finally got it working. g'night.
00:10:12 Part Musicmad
00:11:17MikachuZoric: you can use a program called mp3gain
00:11:19*muesli__ utters a tiny wish and hope somebody will hear it...1-minute-instead-of-15minutes-increases in sleeping time mode would rule...
00:11:37ZoricMikachu: does that work on linux?
00:11:52Mikachuit's one of those few programs that work on both linux and windows :)
00:12:15Mikachuit actually modifies the mp3 file, so it should work with anything
00:12:27Mikachuit is lossless
00:12:38Zoricbut I want it to not modify the file, just add tags. But I guess it does that too
00:12:44Zoricfound it the a repo :)
00:12:54Mikachuit's the only one i know about anyway, and use
00:13:08linuxstbIf you have Wine installed, you can try foobar (or other Windows apps)
00:13:29linuxstbI think people have asked here for such a tool in the past, but there doesn't seem to be one.
00:13:33 Join DJDD___ [0] (
00:14:09ashridahi've run into a utility called 'crip' that claims to do replaygain on mp3 files
00:14:15Zoricyeah, but I havnt really gotten around to installing wine, it seems quite difficult to get to work... and Im much to lazy to boot my windowsinstall :P
00:14:31ashridahbut i don't know if it *has* to do them while ripping, it doesn't make it overly clear, and i haven't looked
00:14:33Mikachuit works pretty much out of the box now
00:14:43Febs<muesli__> febs name is nice wink
00:14:52Febs^^I wasn't very creative when coming up with a nickname.
00:15:00midkaylinuxstb, congrats and thanks for audio on 5g - made my day :)
00:15:10linuxstbZoric: "apt-get install wine" worked fine for me...
00:15:24muesli__so did i..i guess i was eating muesli when i chose it ;)
00:15:24linuxstb(I'm running Debian unstable)
00:15:34ashridahZoric: does your ubuntu repo have a utility called 'crip' in it?
00:15:50ashridah(might only be in debian)
00:15:53XavierGrmuesli: you can edit the cfg file
00:16:23XavierGrso go open your favorite cgf file and locate the option.
00:16:31XavierGrthen change the value to that of your preference.
00:17:16ashridahcomes from if you can't find it
00:17:23muesli__which config? guess viewers.cfg its not
00:17:41Mikachusave your config first
00:17:48XavierGryour configuration file
00:17:52muesli__ah ok
00:18:07XavierGrwhich is generated when you save your settings
00:18:15linuxstbashridah: I've just downloaded crip - according to the man page, it normalises the audio, rather than calculating replaygain tags.
00:18:35ashridahdarn, then the explanation i read wasn't particularly accurate
00:18:56ashridahit'll pass replaygain-enable flags on to ripping/encoding utilities by the looks of it

00:23:37linuxstbmidkay: Do you have a 5g?
00:23:46Zoricmp3gain does not seem to be able to save the replaygain info in tags as foobar2000 does... or can it?
00:24:15midkaylinuxstb, yep
00:25:14Paul_The_Nerdmp3gain *can* save the tags without editing the files. At least in Win32, a GUI version of it I tried once did
00:25:34Paul_The_NerdIf you chose to just "scan" the files instead of scan and write (or something like that) it would put the tags on without modifying the actual frames at all
00:25:35CassandraIs there any way to tell if a ripped MP3 has the correct encoding for gapless? I'm getting 'almost gapless' at the moment, and I'm wondering whether it's Rockbox or the encoder that's to blame (I use lame.dll).
00:26:35Mikachudid you use −−nogap ?
00:26:52CassandraYou can't use −−nogap with a DLL.
00:27:09ZoricPaul_The_Nerd: aah, found it in the man-file now. Will try it.
00:28:21Zoricit only writes tag by default, and if you want it to modify the file you have to specify it ;)
00:28:53muesli__XavierGr mmh..cant find the value
00:29:55CassandraBesides, aren't recent LAMEs supposed to contain internal data about the size of the last frame. −−nogap is a hack to split tracks on frame boundaries IIRC, which is something different.
00:30:09linuxstbmidkay: Have you tried the latest Rockbox builds?
00:30:23muesli__Cassandra i would use mpc for gapless trax to get rid of gap issues
00:30:27Paul_The_NerdCassandra: You could always try the files in a non-rockbox player that supports LAME gapless.
00:30:42midkaylinuxstb, i stayed a few minutes later than i should have this morning to compile for audio support.. was a build from about 9 hours ago early enough? :)
00:31:20linuxstbIf it has audio, then yes :) Have you tested many different files?
00:31:38Rob2222LinusN: Need more H300 testers on USB problem or are you fine?
00:31:47CassandraPaul_The_Nerd, problem is some of them 'cheat', so I still wouldn't know for sure.
00:31:57LinusNi'm fine, but please try the latest bleeding edge
00:32:12 Quit DJDD___ (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:32:52midkaylinuxstb, just MP3s.. i tried a 320kbit one and a 192k one.. both skipped once in a while, i checked the audio thread and it kept trying to refill but emptied too quickly. is everything working though? wav/ogg/flac?
00:33:00Rob2222Hmm, the strange thing is, my H340 is clicking and my H360 not... *trytofigurewhy*
00:33:39Cassandramuesli__, if I were going to re-encode, I'd probably go wavpack.
00:33:40 Quit t0mas ("see you all tomorrow")
00:34:00muesli__how large are those files?
00:34:30CassandraIt's just I'm sure someone promised me that swcodec Rockbox would do 'proper gapless' at some point.
00:35:06CassandraOddly to my ear it doesn't sound like there's any actual silence between tracks.
00:35:18CassandraJust that the transition is somehow 'jerky'.
00:35:45CassandraI'd just like to get to the bottom of whether its my encoding technque or Rockbox that's to blame.
00:36:31Paul_The_NerdHow "jerky" do you mean?
00:36:48CassandraJust like there's a tiny jolt in track transitions.
00:36:54CassandraIt's *almost* not there.
00:37:05CassandraBut you know how it is with *almost*.
00:37:46Paul_The_NerdIs this on an iPod?
00:37:51 Join ts-x [0] (
00:37:59linuxstbmidkay: Yes, every audio format works in theory - I've had no problems with FLAC, 224kbps Ogg, 128kbps and 192kbps (CBR) mp3. But some codecs do struggle at higher bitrates.
00:38:01CassandraNope, this is H120.
00:38:02Mikachui had good gapless on my ipod with a flac album
00:38:13CassandraNot sure if I've got the same on iPod.
00:38:26Mikachuat afaict
00:38:31Mikachuat least*
00:38:31midkaylinuxstb, i should try again.. the 4-letter filenaming pisses me off though :) (side note: is there a way to build an id3 database on the 5g?)
00:38:43Paul_The_NerdCassandra: Another question: Are they replaygained?
00:38:48CassandraMikachu, getting gapless right is strictly an MP3 problem. They didn't think that people might want gapless when designing the format. F***wits.
00:38:51midkaylinuxstb, please tell me next up is faster lcd driver ;)
00:39:02Mikachutypical of germans
00:39:09CassandraPaul_The_Nerd, yes. But I use "album, track if shuffled".
00:39:26Paul_The_NerdI figured, but y'know, doesn't hurt to ask. :)
00:39:35 Quit perl|bbq (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:40:07linuxstbYou can't blame mp3 - it is simply an mpeg elementary stream. It was designed to be used inside a container - but no-one ever did...
00:41:18Cassandratoo technical for me, I'm afraid. But it seems to me assuming that music will be exactly a set number of 'frames' is a bad thing.
00:41:21Paul_The_NerdCassandra: Apparently lame 3.90 or later *should* add the gapless info to the LAME tag by default.
00:41:50CassandraPaul_The_Nerd, That's what I thought.
00:42:42Paul_The_NerdThough I read that one person had problems with a "very slight hiccup" being added to the audio itself at the beginning of tracks
00:43:02 Join aegray_ [0] (
00:43:53CassandraI'm using LAME 3.96 DLL 1.32 apparently.
00:44:08muesli__using x-fade kills excellent gaps either
00:44:31Paul_The_NerdIt was a program called ALL2LAME using 3.97b2 that did it for this person, but that doesn't mean the glitch couldn't happen elsewhere.
00:44:35Mikachuthere's crossfade on shuffle only
00:44:39Cassandramuesli__, but I don't want my tracks run into one another.
00:44:56Mikachuright, i misread that sentence
00:45:06muesli__nah, it sounds gapless. u wont notice it
00:45:25muesli__set all delays to 0 and fade in/out to 1-2secs
00:45:27muesli__try it
00:45:49CassandraI might do if there's no better way to solve it.
00:46:03CassandraBut I'd rather get it working right than work around it, if possible.
00:46:29muesli__just give it a try..doesnt cost a cent. but in general ur right ;)
00:46:37Paul_The_NerdCassandra: You may want to try the songs in an external program or two anyway, just to see if it's something the cheating can solve or not.
00:47:26CassandraWinamp ought to work, right? (I'm using the Japanese MP3 codec that supports ReplayGain.)
00:48:38Paul_The_NerdI have no clue, honestly.
00:49:23linuxstbCassandra: foobar should give you perfect gapless - that's the reference preglow used.
00:49:45 Quit Moos ("Glory to Rockbox!")
00:49:55CassandraOK - will try foobar.
00:49:57 Join Moos [0] (
00:52:18CassandraRight. It's not Rockboxes fault, I can hear it in foobar too.
00:52:28CassandraVery slight though.
00:55:27 Part LinusN
00:57:03JdGordonradio is MHz or KHz?
00:57:09Zoide777very strange... 4g grayscale is back to having the inverted Apple firmware display!
00:57:13 Quit xmixahlx ("blah blah blah")
00:57:23MikachuJdGordon: depends, is it fm or am?
00:57:36preglowCassandra: there is no such thing as perfect gapless with mp3
00:57:46mikearthurpretty much
00:57:52mikearthurLAME does it pretty much perfect
00:58:03Cassandrapreglow: Bah. I want my money back.
00:58:14preglowyou may get the same artifacts with vorbis as well
00:58:17preglowbut it's far less likely
00:58:33CassandraWhat about wavpack?
00:58:35preglowit _is_ gapless, but there are phase discontinuities in the transition
00:58:38preglowwavpack is losless
00:58:46preglowso that has perfect gapless support
00:58:56CassandraErm, it's either, isn't it?
00:59:05preglowwell, yeah
00:59:13preglowbut the lossy mode is pure quantisation based, i think
00:59:29preglowso it'll still be very nicely gapless
00:59:50*Cassandra looks like I need to re-rip then.
00:59:52linuxstbYou can get perfect gapless mp3 if you simply encode as a long file and split on frame boundaries.
01:00:02*Cassandra stares at her 300 odd CDs.
01:00:17linuxstbThat's always seemed a more sensible approach than hacks like lame headers.
01:00:23Cassandralinuxstb, yeah, I did that for The Wall and Tubular Bells.
01:00:27CassandraKind of fiddly though.
01:00:28Mikachuif ogg works better, why not use that?
01:00:38preglowlinuxstb: well, as long as you're willing to give up on exact rips
01:00:45preglowlinuxstb: the track transitions will be all over the place
01:00:56preglowi just fuck it and use a proper format instead
01:00:56CassandraMikachu, because wavpack has some neat features and, it appears, works better than ogg.
01:01:00preglowmp3 should be allowed to die
01:01:19*Cassandra uses MP3 for hysterical raisins.
01:01:39linuxstbpreglow: Can you notice if a transition is a few hundred samples out? It's already been moved artificially to a CD sector boundary.
01:01:39 Quit Zoide777 ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
01:01:48CassandraWhen I can fit 500 albums on a jukebox losslessly, then I'll happily use lossless.
01:02:01CassandraBut I think that requries a 160GB disk.
01:02:04Mikachuogg isn't lossless...
01:02:14preglowlinuxstb: not usually, no, but i'd still not like to work around a formats shortcomings like that
01:02:34linuxstbHow many samples in a 44.1KHz mp3 frame?
01:02:39Cassandralinuxstb, you can definitely hear the oddness when playing tracks that have been encoded like that on random.
01:02:46preglowon random, yes
01:03:31linuxstbI'm mainly thinking of live albums - where even a second won't make much difference to the transition.
01:03:40 Quit ender` (" Who is General Error, and why is he reading my hard drive?")
01:03:45CassandraGods my PCs speakers suck. I must replace them but it's not worth doing before I move.
01:03:47linuxstbBut if you have tracks like that, then I agree with preglow, use a better format.
01:03:53Mikachuif it's a transition anyway, does the exact cut point really matter?
01:04:08preglownot much
01:04:20CassandraMikachu, sometimes, yeah.
01:04:22preglowit's more for the tracks without transitions as such
01:04:44CassandraTwo tracks may segue and still have a distinct join.
01:04:46preglowgetting the first 500 samples of the start of the next track is nice when that track is not the next one
01:04:55CassandraA lot of Mike Oldfield stuff, for example.
01:04:59preglowsweet jesus, i'm tired
01:05:32preglowbed time, then
01:05:41aegray_preglow or linuxstb you still here?
01:05:46CassandraTake care preglow, and thanks for the info on gapless.
01:05:51aegray_you happen to have that pcf spec?
01:05:59linuxstbIt's in our wiki.
01:06:02preglowit's in the wiki

01:11:28pillthere is
01:11:37preglowCassandra: compared to the nano it seems to blow, yea
01:11:41pillexcept you replace the wires by electricity
01:12:02CassandraThe subwoofer on that isn't as good, apparently,
01:12:03Zoide777what really impresses me right now is how much *faster* rockbox boots
01:12:05linuxstbCassandra: They are extremely nice (especially the slimline 30GB in black). But I've never done any tests for battery life.
01:12:09Zoide777compared to one or 2 days ago
01:12:18Zoide777i'd say 3x faster at least
01:12:22CassandraAnd if I'm going to pay that much for speakers, I'd like to have them as good as possible.
01:12:35Cassandralinuxstb, I'd be getting a 60gb one.
01:12:35pilli have a z-680
01:12:40pilli'm fine so far
01:12:41linuxstbZoide777: Nothing has changed - did you switch to a different WPS?
01:12:42preglowlinuxstb: can you see any way out of the ui sluggishness issue, or are we just going to have to go two cores soon?
01:12:47CassandraAlready over 40gb on the iRiver.
01:12:57linuxstbCassandra: Nice - you can write the code to handle the fact that it has 64MB of RAM....
01:13:08linuxstb(using runtime detection...)
01:13:21preglowcan't do that
01:13:24 Join Bg3r [0] (n=Bager@
01:13:27linuxstbpreglow: Can so
01:13:29preglowwe'd need to move the plugins and codec load address first
01:13:50linuxstbYes - just put them at the start of RAM, not the end.
01:14:01preglowi think amiconn said that wasn't trivial
01:14:05Zoide777linuxstb: i *was* playing around with wps's yesterday, but i guess it's hard to pinpoint what made the difference. I think it was after compiling & uploading the latest cvs bootloader and then overwriting all the rockbox stuff in the ipod with the latest build
01:14:13CassandraSo the 60gb has more RAM than the 30. Weird.
01:14:18CassandraAnd unhelpful of Apple.
01:14:28CassandraThey aren't making our lives easy, are they?
01:15:09linuxstbIt's not too bad - the worse that will happen is we will need separate builds.
01:15:15CassandraAlthough might be best just to cut the Gordian not and have an ipodvideo30 and ipodvideo60 builds.

01:15:24Cassandraknot even.
01:15:25Zoide777what file controls the scrollwheel? I'd like to see if I can change it so that it accelerates after a while in the song list
01:15:33preglowthe runtime detection thing should be fairly simple
01:15:36Zoide777it takes too long right now w/ linear speed
01:15:40preglowbetter one build than two
01:15:50Cassandrapreglow, in theory I agree with you.
01:15:53MikachuZoide777: firmware/drivers/button.c
01:16:00CassandraIn practice, I'm not sure I want to write it.
01:16:00linuxstbI wonder if the pcm code could simply have a "hole" in the ringbuffer.

01:16:17Cassandralinuxstb, I love it when you talk dirty.

01:16:36Zoide777preglow: why?
01:16:41preglowZoide777: the acceleration part should be in the list viewer, not the button driver
01:16:43lostlogiclinuxstb: I had thought of that in order to be able to resize it
01:16:47Zoide777ah, ok
01:16:49CassandraApple claim up to 20hrs battery life on the 60gb model,
01:16:49Zoide777that makes sense
01:16:51lostlogiclinuxstb: would introduce a ton of extra logic
01:16:54preglowZoide777: because for every menu item you'd want to move, one event would have to be dispatched
01:16:54CassandraWhich I assume means about 15.
01:16:57lostlogicwell not a ton, but a lot
01:17:01linuxstblostlogic: so a bad plan?
01:17:02preglowZoide777: and the list viewer redraws for each event
01:17:09 Quit andy_ ()
01:17:32lostlogiclinuxstb: I'm sure it could be done... might have to go back to statically sized buffer chunks to make it really feasible though
01:17:36Mikachui changed that delta to 10, it's impossible to control things with 4
01:17:36preglowhole in the ringbuffer = bad plan
01:17:40preglowdon't even consider it
01:17:48Zoide777preglow: the whole screen? wouldn't it be cheaper to just redraw the items that are changing?
01:18:13preglowZoide777: well, that's probably what it's doing, but that alone is more than slow enough that you can't make it scroll as fast as you want just because each keypress will take too long to handle
01:18:28preglowZoide777: so for acceleration to work properly, you'll have to hack the list viewer to skip several entires at once
01:19:03Mikachuor if you use the two 150mhz cores, you can make it scroll smoothly the whole way with motion blur
01:19:04preglowZoide777: and god knows how that is to happen with the current clickwheel interface. the list viewer doesn't know how fast it's scrolled, it just takes scroll events and treats them pretty much like if it was a button pres

01:19:17preglowMikachu: and phong shading
01:19:20Zoide777preglow: i guess that wouldn't be too bad in terms of functionality... if it waits for a certain time, then starts skipping entries so you can get, say, to the letter P. then it stops skipping lines after you stop moving the wheel
01:19:27 Quit imphasing (Remote closed the connection)
01:19:29Mikachuhaha, yes, definitely phong shading
01:19:34Zoide777preglow: hmm... i guess its not that simple then
01:19:58preglowZoide777: no it's not, i've thought about it myself, and it basically boils down to that everything that requires acceleration needs some kind of special interface for the clickwheel
01:20:08preglowZoide777: we can't just pretend it's a set of buttons anymore
01:20:34preglowif can imagine clickwheel handling is already very slow on video ipods thanks to this
01:20:52JdGordonhey, is it better to reuse tags in the wps for radio specific items? or make new tags?
01:21:40Zoide777preglow: could there just be some timer that waits, say 3 seconds and then makes the scroll events translate into 3 line skips? and then another timer that waits for inactivity for about half a second to restore it to normal
01:22:46Zoide777preglow: it wouldn't really measure how fast you're sliding your finger on the wheel, but it could help
01:23:10Paul_The_NerdJdGordon: It seems to me, at least, that the radio should use its own entirely separate WPS anyway since the data's pretty drastically different from Track/Artist/Album info.
01:23:28preglowZoide777: any solution that doesn't involve the event torrent the click wheel generates now is acceptable
01:23:41JdGordonye, but its working now with unmodified wps files.. so if i reuse tags it makes life easier...
01:23:54preglowZoide777: it's just a matter of making it as non-intrusive to the rest of rockbox as possible
01:24:11JdGordonalthough, i have added a new tag to check if its the radios creen or not... so adding new tags wouldnt be _much_ hassle..
01:24:20preglowif we port to h10, we're going to have this problem all over again, so might as well start prepare for some other control mechanisms than buttons
01:24:20Zoide777preglow: i guess it would have to be yet another menu option, hehe..
01:25:28Paul_The_NerdJdGordon: Does it use the existing WPS though, or does it have a separate WPS for the radio screen?
01:25:36JdGordonexisintg 1
01:25:37preglowbut yeah, i believe the best thing to do is probably to add another button event which just indicates clickwheel movement
01:25:46preglowthen have another function where you can interact more closely with the clickwheel
01:26:07 Join imphasing [0] (
01:26:34preglowso that every screen can decide how to handle the clickwheel: either like it is two buttons, like now, or like it is the continuous surface it is
01:26:35Paul_The_NerdIck. I personally don't like that idea, but that's just me. Since a lot of the images for a normal WPS won't be used at all in a Radio WPS. Neither will the backdrop image fit the information as well in a lot of cases. Just my thoughts though.
01:26:53preglowlinuxstb: comment?
01:26:56Zoide777preglow: that sounds reasonable. I honestly don't know much at all right now about how rockbox is working under the hood, but it seems pretty crazy to try to make it homogeneous now that there are so many different targets
01:27:03linuxstbCould the scroll event have a value - i.e. how many clicks it has moved since the last event?
01:27:24preglowit would be a hack
01:27:27linuxstbBut there are two variable - time and distance we need to take care of...

01:27:33preglowthe button event is a 32 bit bit field
01:27:39 Join tvelocity [0] (
01:28:11preglowthere's also another issue
01:28:22preglowin order to not just have the same old problem again where we fire away zillions of events
01:28:32preglowthe button driver would need to start skipping some of those events
01:28:45linuxstbMy original thoughts were to have different scroll events - something like SCROLL_FWD, SCROLL_FWD_FAST and SCROLL_FWD_FASTER
01:28:49preglowand send them more seldom, so that the clickwheel position delta can grow a bit before the events are sent
01:28:52 Quit Thus0_ (Client Quit)
01:29:00preglowlinuxstb: that might work
01:29:09JdGordonPaul_The_Nerd: i disagree... besides. it was easier this way :D
01:29:11preglowwe would not need many degrees
01:29:14linuxstbSo for example, SCROLL_FWD_FASTER would page-down in the list viewer
01:29:21aegray_you guys know about i2c interrupts?
01:29:27preglowaegray_: a little
01:29:41aegray_how do you tell which device the interrupt came from?
01:29:49aegray_do you just poll interrupt status flags on all devices?
01:30:02Zoide777or maybe the wheel sends an initial signal to a listener on the driver, and then the driver polls the wheel every so often until it somehow decides it's stopped?
01:30:12*aegray_ wants the pcf to interrupt on low bat
01:30:36preglowZoide777: that is what happens now, problem is still that the button driver needs to decide how often to send events
01:30:44Paul_The_NerdJdGordon: Well, at the *very* least it'll need its own tags. That way, at least, all the conditional images for normal use won't show up, and if someone doesn't show anything but say Track Name, they can still have a functioning Radio
01:30:48preglowZoide777: the clickwheel is very sensitive, tons of events are sent just at a stroke of the clickwheel
01:31:09aegray_erm i'lll ask agai later
01:31:25preglowit makes no sense for the list viewer to decide how often to poll, in the case of buttons, it wants to poll as often as it can
01:31:30preglowthe clickwheel is a special case

02:57:18Zoide777linuxstb: ahhhh... i have an idea. it turns out page up/down makes the selection move by pages as opposed to item by item. for the ipod, I'm going to try to have a counter keep track of how many items have been scrolled in the current screen. so when the number goes above, say, 50, it clearly means you're trying to scroll down a big list, so we will treat the wheel as pg up/down instead of the ordinary up/down. then when the user clicks on Play
02:57:44Zoide777(it's more a patch than a fix, of course, but it might be useful in the meantime)
02:57:54Zoide777gotta shower though, brb
02:57:59Paul_The_NerdZoide777: So, what happens if they start paging down, get to the 407th entry, and need #408?
02:58:12Zoide777oh shit
02:58:25Zoide777i forgot, i had thought of a timer for stopping
02:58:30Zoide777but that's not easy, right..
02:58:37Zoide777at least not as easy as the simple counter
02:58:56Zoide777oh, now i remember
03:00:23Zoide777so when you get to #407, you simply scroll *up*, which disables the pg up/down scrolling. the idea is that it would would do the fast scrolling to get down to some region of the playlist, and from there you can just nudge it up and have low sensitivity up & down until you scroll a large number of lines again
03:00:28linuxstbZoide777: The button driver in firmware/drivers/button.c receives an interrupt for every click the wheel is turned. It then sends a scroll event every 4 (I think) clicks - but only if the button queue is empty.
03:00:30Zoide777(downward, say)
03:01:04Zoide777linuxstb: so what does that mean?
03:01:18Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: there's a current bug with Hold
03:01:19linuxstbWhat you could do is keep track of the number of clicks since the last button event was sent, and if this is more than a certain number, send a new event, e.g. BUTTON_SCROLL_FWD_PAGE
03:01:38linuxstbAnd then map that to page down in list.h
03:01:41Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: If you turn hold on then off, until it scrolls (volume changes + or - 1) button presses don't do anything
03:02:16 Quit dpassen1 (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
03:02:31Zoide777linuxstb: that sounds great. would i do that in gui_synclist_do_button?
03:02:51Paul_The_NerdThat was introduced, as far as I can tell, when the code not to queue scroll events when busy was added.
03:03:36Zoide777Paul_The_Nerd: so does that mean that the click counting would not always be reliable?
03:04:46Paul_The_NerdNo clue
03:07:06Zoide777well, I'll try and see what i can find out. you guys gave me some good ideas. (keep in mind this is my first go at the source code... well, except for the contrast line back when the whole screen would be dark). at the very least i'll learn a bit

08:40:21JdGordonwell.. why have the display at all even? if its too quiet turn it up.. its just a cosmetic thing...
08:40:38Zoide777has anyone here had any luck creating fonts for rockbox?
08:40:40LinusNtook me 20 minutes to get used to the db scale when i got my first device with db scale
08:41:06LinusNZoide777: yes
08:41:23LinusNwe've had some luck
08:41:34LinusNsince there are a lot of fonts in rockbox
08:41:34Paul_The_NerdHaving a display be numeric rather than just visual only really seems to make sense to me if the numbers mean something.
08:41:51LinusNPaul_The_Nerd: amen
08:41:54Paul_The_NerdBut I still kinda get the "100% is more intuitive" thing, in a way. I just don't get why some people get so incredibly angry either.
08:42:39LinusNme neither
08:43:08LinusNZoide777: are you trying to convert a ttf font?

08:46:44Paul_The_NerdJdGordon: Is XavierGr's the patch that lets you load fmr files?
08:47:11Zoide777LinusN: I got fontforge for cygwin/x11, but I'm not too sure I'm doing things right
08:47:32Zoide777LinusN: have you done this before?
08:48:04LinusNyes i have, but not in cygwin. how far have you come?
08:48:47Zoide777well, i can run fontforge and all, but then I open a unicode ttf and I'm not sure how to convert it correctly
08:49:11Zoide777LinusN: and then convodf or whatever it's called kept giving me segfaults
08:49:49LinusNZoide777: you are supposed to create a bitmap font in fontforge, and save it as BDF

08:53:56Zoide777LinusN: ok, well first of all fontforge gives an error when opening the ttf. it says "The Postscript font name "[chinese characters
08:54:02Zoide777oops, pressed enter
08:54:33Zoide777LinusN: ]" is invalid. It should be printable ASCII, must not contain #$@#$% or space and must be shorter than 63 characters
08:54:54Zoide777LinusN: then I click OK and it opens up the grid of letters
08:54:57LinusNwell, give the font a non-chinese name then
08:55:33Zoide777how do you do that? I mean, the filename itself is not in chinese
08:57:27LinusNi guess the font has an identifier in the font structure
08:58:49Zoide777well, I'll try that later. so now i opened a different unicode font, and it didn't give any errors. but when I go to File −−> Generate Fonts, the box with BDF doesn't let me select BDF

09:40:51CassandraRight - I think that's a decider. I'll be acquiring an iPod.
09:40:58CassandraIn a clever usage of interface technology already built into the Arcam Solo, Arcam has developed the rLead which uses the dock connector found on the bottom of iPod to communicate directly with Solo. Arcam's Solo music system has gained a worldwide reputation for being the best sounding single box music system ever made. Now, with the new Arcam rLead, it will become the perfect way to playback from
09:40:58Cassandra the iPod too. Control of the music is simple, as the central control keys on the Solo operate the iPod in the same manner as the iPod's own control wheel. Listings of music by Artist, Genre, Album and Track are all available, as well as feedback on transport controls such as Play, Stop Fast Forward and Rewind. Now available in stores - contact your local authorised Arcam dealer for more informatio
09:41:29*Cassandra bounces at the thought of implementing this for Rockbox.
09:45:01Zagorthat's one of the few actual hardware advantages of the ipods: their dock is prepared for communication with outside devices, allowing external displays and intelligent controllers
09:46:54CassandraYeah, and one of the (many) advantages of the Solo.

09:58:50Zoide777hmm... so I was able to convert a unicode font to Rockbox. But all the letters are unaligned vertically (all the words look wavy). Does anyone know what could be the reason?
09:59:44lostlogicCassandra: naw, I don't need one of those. I play all of my music through my logitech speaker system, what I really need is a DAP with digital out to take advantage of the speakers' digital in.

10:10:09Zoide777markun: thanks, but that's what I already used to conver the font. I actually got a working .fnt on my ipod, but the text looks all "wavy"
10:16:27markunZoide777: how small do you want to make the font?
10:18:19Zoide777well, I'd say about the same as the 6+12x13 font, maybe a bit bigger
10:18:55Zoide777hmmm, just tried simsun and it works alright

10:19:31DJDD___Hey i just got a new H340. I've finished putting rockbox on and its great. But one thing that has been pissing me off is that the screen keeping turning off, and i'll be damned if i know how to stop that. Is that the 'backlight' settings maybe?
10:20:15B4gderDJDD___: 1, the OF does that too, and 2 you want that to save batteries and 3 with backlight off you can't see the screen anyway
10:21:16DJDD___I know the old firmware did it too, and i know it saves the battery, and i'm fine with that. But it does it WAY too soon. Like i barely have time to read the song title
10:21:35B4gderthat's the backlight timeout setting, yes
10:21:51DJDD___Ok nifty
10:22:30DJDD___Whats caption backlight?
10:22:49B4gderswitching on backlight just before it changes song
10:23:13safetydanWell at least my SDL sim changes seem to have fixed audio playback crashes under Windows;topicseen#msg18382

12:28:10JdGordongrr.. ok, patch updated again.. i changed tabs to spaces and its using \n for line ends
12:30:15LinusNi see you have changed many tags
12:30:32LinusNfor example filesize
12:30:36JdGordonah, ye
12:31:31JdGordona few.. because im faking an id3 tag, some settings need to get put in a id3 value which doesnt make sense.. so its just so if they use the tag on the wrong screen it wont look wrong
12:31:55LinusN"look wrong"?
12:31:59JdGordone.g the frequency should be in mhz if its radio and hz in normal
12:32:23perpleXaany plans of making an installer for ipods?
12:32:29LinusNi don't think any wps tags should work in the fm screen if there isn't a perfect match
12:32:48 Join mikearthur [0] (
12:32:49LinusNthey should just be empty imho
12:32:59JdGordon... more work to do :p
12:33:16LinusNor even have a separate set of tags for the two screens
12:33:21*perpleXa persuades LinusN to apply the apev2 patch to the cvs files
12:33:49B4gderperpleXa: I doubt it was fixed since you asked just a few hours ago...
12:34:05perpleXame neither
12:34:13perpleXai just want someone to add it ;)
12:34:15JdGordonno, coz changing some tags means that its easier to make wps's... ive added 7 radio specific tags.. but it will wps;s will work unchanged with this
12:34:29LinusN"work unchanged"?
12:34:53LinusNwhy should they work unchanged?
12:35:20LinusNthere is no concept of title, artist, album, time etc in the fm wps
12:35:40JdGordonso u want every tag that doesnt work in fm to return NULL?
12:35:56LinusNor simply not be translated
12:36:05LinusNlike unknown tags do
12:36:08*JdGordon is way to lazy... this is why i did it this way..

12:44:57JdGordonits gonna be a HUGE pain to disable all the invalid tags on the radio screen... u really sure u want that?
12:45:11LinusNwhy would it be a pain?
12:45:49Bg3rbut... ? :)
12:45:58webguest59all iPodbox needs is a little polish and it would be awesome!

12:46:28webguest59lol if only I could program! (which I can't!)
12:46:28JdGordone.g the 'p' case (Playlist/Song Information) i was about to just break out of it.. but no.. the time and volume and stuff is under that.. each sub case needs to be escaped individually..
12:46:38webguest59However I've been using Rockbox since it first came out on the Archos
12:47:06webguest59Would the Crossfader and the forthcoming EQ work on the iPod?
12:47:07LinusNJdGordon: break it up into two switch() branches
12:47:21LinusNone with the radio tags and one with the regular ones
12:47:22B4gderwebguest59: yeps
12:47:37safetydanwebguest59, forthcoming EQ? it's already there and working :)
12:48:00webguest59yea well I've just got iPodbox on my iPod and the EQ seemed to have no effect
12:48:11LinusNJdGordon: and then you only handle the "R" tags in the radio case
12:48:26safetydanwebguest59, it's switched on right?
12:48:55JdGordonu mean switch on the screen type?
12:49:04LinusNif (wps_state.wps_type==WPS_TYPE_REGULAR)

12:54:44webguest59Will iPodbox also support photos and videos?
12:55:04B4gderit will support everything someone writes code for
12:55:14B4gdercurrently it shows jpegs in greyscale
12:55:18B4gderand there's no video

14:55:57simisubut then why would it be slower when NOT playing?
14:56:24Zagorbecause when not playing, we don't need as much cpu. so we lower the speed to save battery.
14:56:30simisualso screen goes off while scrolling is not really friendly...

14:56:50Zagorsimisu: agreed
14:56:54simisuso it's on purpose?
14:57:40Zagorwell, ideally the scrolling should adapt to the current speed so it's not as noticeable
14:57:46simisui want to scroll as fast as i can... i have one huge dir with loads of cds... doesn't make sense to limit it when i can actualy set it the way I want it!
14:58:15Zagorif we don't limit the speed, we limit battery life. you can't get everything.
14:58:34LinusNsimisu: you mean the backlight goes off when you hold a button to scroll?
14:59:27simisuyup back light goes off... and if scrolling continues it actualy flickers untill scrolling stops (and then it's just a black screen untill you tuch it again)

20:25:35t0maswell... I switched from 8/0.5 to 4/1 just because I don't download that much... and I'm running some servers here

20:25:46yeahxso I might ask them
20:25:47Paul_The_NerdI mean, I'm paying for the cheapest "cable internet" package they had. I don't even remember what I was supposed to get any more, but I know my down is much higher, and my up isn't low enough to cause me problems gaming, so I'm happy enough

20:33:10Paul_The_NerdI don't have money for "nice" ones at the moment, but my current ones are dying, so I'm looking for like $25 or less "decent" ones, and have no idea where to start.
20:33:21Paul_The_NerdPeople have suggestions *all* over the place for more costly ones
20:33:33yeahxand mine sound good but they have to be put backwords and upside down to fit right
20:34:10yeahxthe ones I have sound great and are around that price
20:34:58*t0mas has simple Sony ones for my day to day listening
20:35:06t0masE 19,95
20:35:13t0massound great for that price
20:35:31yeahxbut for me the longer wire is on the wrong side so I put them in the wrong ears and to get them to stay in and not hurt I turn the stems up and forward a little and put the cord around my ears :)
20:36:41Paul_The_NerdI'm looking at some Koss ones.
20:37:33yeahxI thought they would be good because they basically invented headphones, but I havent liked their cheaper ones
20:38:29Paul_The_NerdSee, I'm reading a lot of people saying fairly good things about these, and they're $13.99
20:40:02XavierGrBger are you here?
20:40:05yeahxthe ones that came with my old rio were alright but their inner ear ones with expanding foam sucked

20:49:09FebsPaul_The_Nerd, Koss KSC-75 are a great value for the price (about $20 USD). They're open headphones (clip on), so they don't block outside sounds. They're highly recommended at
20:49:23linuxstbt0mas: :) I've just ordered myself a new ADSL microfilter. Hopefully that will fix my disconnect problems.
20:49:30FebsKoss "The Plug," on the other hand, are (IMHO) terrible.
20:50:10t0maslinuxstb: I'm happy that SSH connections are fairly trouble-proof
20:50:12Paul_The_NerdFebs: I was looking at the KTXPRO1s. I'm more a fan of the ones that go over the top of the head, as clip ons eventually drive me nuts.
20:50:33linuxstbt0mas: Well, I'm a good test for your build system...
20:50:44t0masit reported your server as failing just once
20:50:48t0masand skipped it without problems
20:50:52FebsI'm not familiar with that model.
20:52:05Paul_The_NerdIt sounds pretty similar to the KSC75, but in an over the head "portable stereophones" form factor, from the look of their description
20:53:11 Quit simisu ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
20:53:32yeahxthats it, the plug, lots of hype but totally crap
20:54:57FebsJust did a quick Google on the KTXpro1. I'm guessing that it's the same driver as the KSC75 but in an over-the-head version. For $14, you really can't go wrong.
20:55:23Paul_The_NerdYeah, that's kinda what I figured.
20:55:34FebsIf you want to get into the next pricing tier, Sennheiser PX100 and Koss Portapros are both fairly well regarded, with the PX100 probably getting the edge.
20:56:19Febs(just so you know, I've owned both The Plug and the KSC75 ... my other recommendations are based on what other people have reported.)
20:56:23Paul_The_NerdWell, I actually want some fairly good ones, but right now, I want to buy the cheapest ones that won't cause me pain until then

21:32:15linuxstbOK. It works with 192kbps CBR files, so obvious the peaks in bitrate are too much for the CPU at the moment. You could try having an extremely simple WPS, and make sure there is no peakmeter.

21:51:23Paul_The_NerdSince before it had sound
21:51:59yeahxwow, what did you use it for?
21:52:07yeahxdo you play ogg?
21:52:37yeahxand do you use rockbox full time?
21:52:40Paul_The_NerdAt the time, I was just playing around with it. I'd boot into rockbox for games.
21:52:44Paul_The_NerdAnd yeah, now I use rockbox full time
21:53:20Paul_The_NerdI need to figure out the backlight logic. It doesn't mate sense. I can, with a very small tweak, change it so that "Off" means permanently on, and "On" means permanently off, but I need to figure out *why* this change does that

22:23:33FebsIs there a list of iPod keymappings anywhere?
22:24:06Mikachuonly in the source i think
22:25:35FebsWhat is the button to return to file browser from WPS? Preglow? Linuxstb?
22:26:49vcait's the center button on my nano
22:27:58FebsThanks, vca. What about the Quick Menu?
22:28:03yeahxdoes listening to ogg files eat more battery than mp3?
22:28:28Bagderyeahx: most likely, yes
22:29:08vcaFebs: MENU, i _think_ −− lemme detach the nano from usb to check
22:29:30yeahxI guess I wont be using ogg as much as I wanted
22:30:10yeahxso the only rockbox benifit for me is gapless mp3s I guess
22:30:32vcaFebs: center button is filebrowser, MENU is quickmenu
22:31:20Bagderyeahx: it still does many things better, like booting blazingly fast (compared to OF)
22:31:25vcaFebs: ver 060209-0302
22:32:47FebsThanks. I'm helping someone on the head-fi forum, and since I haven't yet compiled the sim for the iPod, I don't know the keymappings.

23:08:27ghode|afki followed the steps on the wiki and it worked fine, did you make sure you used the 5g specific instructions?
23:08:35Shadowarrior13Kind of :P
23:08:42muesli__h140 and h3xx are identical in terms of soundquality

23:30:09ghode|afkif you want to test a track just drag a song into the root dir, rbx should pick it up

23:31:38Mikachudo you have the usb plugged in when you boot?
23:31:38Shadowarrior13So I think something needs to be smashed
23:31:43Shadowarrior13No -_-
23:32:01ghode|afkdid you copy over the rbx zip?
23:32:18Shadowarrior13I extracted it straight to the root.
23:32:33Shadowarrior13I don't get why it isn't working.
23:32:50Kensirmakesure both the .rockbox folder and the rockbox file are in the root
23:32:51Kensirmake sure you have the latest everything too
