#rockbox log for 2006-05-25

00:00:25AghasterI have a friend who has an H10
00:00:37Aghasterunfortunately its not supported
00:02:46preglowwe'd love to support it
00:02:52preglowbut we need developers willing to do the port
00:03:24preglowa h10 is almost identical to an ipod mini internally, so it should be possible

00:30:39RoriWhat earphones/headphones do you guys use?
00:31:45sharpethe ones that came with my ipod. ;)
00:32:02 Quit tom__ (Remote closed the connection)
00:32:05sharpehey, they suit me perfectly.
00:32:31RoriI bought some Etymotic ER6's thinking they would sound better but they actually sound worse!
00:34:38RoriI have some Sennheiser PX100 over the ear types which sound great so I was looking for something as good for in ear isolation. After recieving the Etymotic's this morning I was so pissed that I went down to the local shop and paid more than I needed on a set of Sennheiser CX-300's. They are awesome! Piss all over the Etymotic's which cost twice as much
00:35:48 Join tom__ [0] (n=tom@
00:36:24RoriI am wondering if I can sell the Ety's on. Kinda difficult when I have stuck them in my ears. I could lie of course on Ebay
00:36:36crashdthey sell replacement plugs for them
00:36:58Rorifor what?
00:37:04crashdthe ety's
00:37:10crashdis you're talking about the ones i think
00:37:20crashdlike the sure e*c series, and the sony fontopias
00:37:31crashdyeah, you can get replacement plugs for them, so you could sell them on with a pair of replacement plugs
00:37:33Rorithey do them for the Senn's too
00:37:49Roriin fact the Sony and Senn are the same round rubbery bits
00:38:32Rorinah I only shoved them in once. cleaned them after and put them back in a sealable bag. they came like that no accessories off ebay in the first place

00:39:02RoriI did not read the small print. my bad. they said in the auction they were earphones only
00:39:18Rorisuckered I was :)
00:39:30Roriif they sounded any good I'd say fine
00:39:30sharpemoney someone made :)
00:39:34Roribut they sound like poo
00:39:46sharpei'll be back later.
00:39:47Roriespecially since they sent the wrong one's
00:39:53Rorithey advertised er6i's
00:40:02RoriI have complained because they sent er6's
00:40:14Rorisee what they say
00:40:36Rorithe er6i's have better bass response so I read which is why I ordered them in the first place

00:40:51Roribut I have a feeling the Senn CX-300's still piss over them

00:43:30Rorimade no diff
00:43:39Bagderso? some people may like it that way
00:43:54Rorimight work for classical who knows
00:43:55Bagderlistening simply is a personal experience
00:44:35RoriI never liked middle sounding. I like bass, treble and a fairly open but subdued middle

00:46:28midkayRori, not sure what you plan to do with them, but maybe you want to try running them on maximum volume for several hours or overnight.. i've heard about people doing that with similar headphones to break them in..
00:47:06midkayprobably worth a go if you're planning to return them.

00:51:35RoriWhich have better bass response
00:51:59RoriI will wait and see what they say and if they won't refund or exchange I will use Paypal buyer protection
00:52:15 Quit Strath ("Client closed")
00:52:21tom__I'm same Rori, problem is my iRiver just makes a crap sound when you pump the bass up
00:52:27tom__and same with the treble
00:52:30tom__starts screeching
00:52:49RoriI actually turned the treble down full on the new Senn's
00:53:05RoriThey have very very crispy treble and lots of bass
00:53:15tom__how much are earphones anyway
00:53:19RoriOnce I turned the treble down they sound fantastic
00:53:22tom__I just use the ones that came with it
00:53:41Paul_The_Ner1Depends on the quality level you're looking for.
00:53:45RoriThe Senn's are about £30 online or 39 in the store
00:53:53MikachuPaul_The_Ner1: what happened to your nick change?
00:54:06tom__what's so good about them then Rori ?
00:54:08Paul_The_Ner1Mikachu: Apparently it didn't happen. Umm

00:54:14Rorithe one's that come with the player always fall out of my ears

00:54:24RoriI needed the rubber bung trype
00:54:38LloreanI'm too lazy to ghost right now.
00:54:58Mikachujust type your password in the channel and i'm sure someone will do it for you :)
00:55:11LloreanThe sound quality on the CX-300s aint bad either, but then rumor is they're exactly the same as the Creative EP-630s. Since I haven't tried myself, I couldn't say.
00:55:24RoriNever heard of those
00:55:44LloreanThey're about 20 USD on average, maybe less
00:56:02RoriI just know the sound I like and since I have tinnitus maybe I am biased a certain way
00:56:04markunLlorean: I'm still not used to you and paul being the same person :)
00:56:17LloreanExact same plastic molding and design as the Senns, and sound _similar_, made in the same factory even, so the debate is whether they're identical or just similar
00:56:19Mikachumaybe you can break it in by being llorean_the_nerd for a few weeks
00:56:42Mikachuis that a spanish ll or just l like in llama?
00:57:37 Nick Llorean is now known as Paul_The_Nerd (
00:59:51markuna friend told me another friend of his is also working on a rockbox port and never saw me here.. Too bad he didn't know his nick.
01:01:58Rorisomeone did a head to head of the Creative 630's to the Senn 300's
01:02:17Rorithey say the Senn's win hands down and the comparison is unrealistic
01:02:28Paul_The_NerdYou talking about the CNET article?
01:02:42Paul_The_NerdIf you read more on Head-Fi, there are plenty others who dispute that
01:02:50Paul_The_NerdOh, sorry, ZDNet
01:03:05tom__How come when the bass hits it sort of cuts off most of the other music :\
01:03:13Paul_The_NerdBecause the earphones are bad
01:03:22tom__they're the sennheisers that come with it
01:03:40Paul_The_NerdMX300s or MX400s. They cost about $8 if you buy them on their own.
01:03:53Paul_The_NerdThey're okay, better than the Apple iPod phones, but nothing to write home about.
01:04:51scottderSony EX71's are ok too
01:05:00crashdyeah, i use the ex71's as everyday phones
01:05:13crashdthe problem there is the cable rubber insulation degrades easily
01:05:15scottderbit bass heavy, but otherwise not bad
01:05:28scottderI love my Koss KSC-35's
01:05:30crashdlooking to get some new ones soon tho
01:05:31Paul_The_NerdReally if you want good sound quality, you either need to spend quite a bit, or get actual headphones, rather than earbuds or IEMs.
01:05:34scottderbest $10 I ever spent
01:06:25RoriI am impressed with the CX300's thus far and I usually listen to my PX100's
01:06:40tom__you look like a twat walking around with headphones on though
01:06:45crashdi was thinking of the px100's
01:06:51Paul_The_NerdThe PX100s are nice.
01:06:52crashdbut yeah, what tom says, and also, they arent very good in noisy places
01:07:02Mikachuwhat's the m for? in ear macaroni?
01:07:02Roripx100's totally rock
01:07:17tom__You're all talking in codes! :p
01:07:19Roribut for noisey places the CX300's own
01:07:22tom__the SDX3345666 xD
01:07:35RoriNot quite as solid as the PX100's bass is but still great
01:08:41RoriUltimate ears foamies apparently fit the Senn cx300's
01:08:49RoriI might order their trial pack in that case
01:09:16tom__so is it time I keep bending my sennheisers and then say "oops they're broked" and get a new pair ? :p

01:10:54Rorialways falling out and not delivering any bass. have to turn them to get into ear
01:11:10Roriget the cx300's you won't be disappointed
01:11:16tom__how much are they?
01:11:34Roriyou can get them for a little over £30
01:12:01tom__Jesus O_O
01:12:40Rorito me that is cheap considering the alternatives
01:13:36scottderJust about anything is better than stock apple buds...I can;t stand those things
01:14:06Paul_The_NerdI saw someone using them today
01:14:13Paul_The_NerdWith a non-Apple player
01:14:17Paul_The_NerdWhich meant it was by choice.
01:15:05Mikachuthey don't fall out of my ears, that's my only condition
01:15:06Genre9mp3Paul_The_Nerd: I'm wondering if this is worse than a regular iPod user...:)
01:17:25Genre9mp3I mean, what would you iPod user OR a non-iPod user that chooses the iPod buds! :)
01:17:43tom__CX300s are Ipod? :\
01:17:56MikachuPaul_The_Nerd: are you sure they weren't just white?
01:18:03tom__oh, you said the stock apple buds :p
01:18:21Genre9mp3Yes...I was refering to the stock apple buds
01:18:36crashdemc clarion cx300's?
01:18:43crashdwhat am i talking about
01:18:50tom__going say, I was gonna say no way am I getting these CX300 if they're even vaguely related to ipod! :p
01:18:54crashdthe senns
01:19:08Paul_The_NerdMikachu: The iPod buds have a pretty distinctive look to them. They may have been imitators, but they had the whole look.
01:19:37tom__the ipod ones are crap
01:24:33Genre9mp3Are the EP-630 considered as good earphones for their price range?
01:24:40Paul_The_NerdGenerally yes
01:24:45Paul_The_NerdWell, definitely for the price range
01:24:54Genre9mp3I found them for only 25 Eur.

02:25:32Paul_The_NerdSince it's so bloody quiet in here right now, anyone got a favorite portable video playing device (not like iPod Video, or Iaudio X5, but something that's designed as a portable media device, rather than DAP+Vid)?
02:26:55XavierGrsomething like DVP?
02:26:58Paul_The_NerdI'm thinking about something HD based to watch videos on, battery life no real issue, but image quality is.
02:27:17XavierGrlook the pmps iriver or archos is selling
02:27:18sharpewell, the only portable device i have that plays videos, is a dvd player, but, that's not really included there.
02:27:31Genre9mp3Like Cowon A2 or the iriver PMP...
02:27:55sharpewhat about a laptop? :)
02:27:58Genre9mp3I'm noty really interested in such devices..
02:28:22Mikachui know there are portable dvd players with builtin lcds...
02:28:33sharpeyep, tis the kind i have.
02:28:35Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: Laptop's too big
02:28:47Paul_The_NerdI considered the iRiver PMP and PMC, but both seem to have a LOT of complaints.
02:29:14hardeepIf you're into games as well, the PSP is pretty good for viewing movies (not HD based though)
02:29:22Genre9mp3Theres are also some Archos devices...
02:29:29sharpedon't the memory sticks, cost a lot?
02:29:38hardeepnot so much nowadays
02:29:51Paul_The_Nerdhardeep: I have a lot of complaints about the PSP already, even without the storage issue.
02:30:45Paul_The_NerdGenre9mp3: Those look interesting. And just about the right price too.
02:31:07sharpewhat about the gpx2 (?) or the gp32...
02:31:15Genre9mp3The AV700 is really big one...
02:31:17sharpealthough they're kind of expensive.
02:31:28sharpewell... not really.

02:32:20Genre9mp3Oh...almost forgot the iStation V43...
02:32:47sharpewell, that cheapness could be made up in 1gb SD cards! :)
02:33:07Paul_The_NerdIt'd take an awful lot of 'em
02:33:19sharpei want to get one though...
02:33:31Paul_The_NerdI do want a GP2X or X2 or whatever the new one is.
02:33:43sharpegpx2 i think.
02:33:44Paul_The_NerdBut right now I need a video-dedicated device, that I'll probably be buying next month.
02:33:46sharpeor 2x...
02:35:02sharpeeh, i want one to play around with. i'd try to port rockbox, but i know i'd fail. it'd probably be not too much of use to do so either.
02:35:34Paul_The_NerdThe GPX2 supports SDL, you could probably just compile the sim for it. :-P
02:36:05sharpeshhh, we just won't tell them how we got rockbox running on an x86...

04:50:00sharpeeh, the c64 is still the same as it's been...
04:50:00earHertzis the button handling in the main thread, or does it have its own thread?
04:50:48sharpei'd assume... it's own thread.
04:54:04earHertzanyone know about the cpu speed on teh ipod?
04:55:11sharpewhat about it?
04:55:14JdGordon400mhz isnt it?
04:55:57Paul_The_NerdWell, 30 unboosted, 75 boosted.
04:56:07sharpeor 24mhz...
04:56:15earHertzon my build it's 30. if I up it to 75, it's fast3r, but when I access the menu, the display becomes random characters
04:56:27Paul_The_NerdYou shouldn't up it manually
04:56:35*JdGordon wonders where he got 400 from :p
04:56:47earHertzPaul_The_Nerd: is it safe to up it programmatically?
04:56:55Paul_The_NerdIt automatically boosts itself when decoding or plugins need to boost. The menus are sluggish right now, yes, but that's more a fault of lack of optimization than anything
04:57:14Paul_The_NerdThough it shouldn't cause your menus to scramble either way
04:57:22Paul_The_NerdWhat type of iPod do you have.
04:57:37Paul_The_NerdJdGordon: Isn't one of the other potential targets a 300 or 400mhz ARM core?
04:57:46JdGordonoh that could be why
04:58:27earHertzthe scrolling is sluggush −− if I move my finger quickly on teh scroll wheel, I generate keypresses to quickly for the code to use −− teh code is written to not emit more keys until the button queue is empty
04:58:38earHertzPaul_The_Nerd: I have a video ipod
04:58:52Paul_The_NerdearHertz: So, 5G. Do you compile your own build, or use the daily?

05:24:24earHertzhmm, boosting the cpu on th ebutton code helps, but not enough
05:24:57Paul_The_NerdWhat about simply boosting it while the backlight is on?
05:25:34earHertzthat's almosgt the same thing; the code that reads teh keys turns on teh backlight
05:25:58earHertzexcept, I luimit the boost to when the finger is touching teh scroll wheel
05:26:16Paul_The_NerdWell, I thought you said simply manually increasing the CPU speed was enough earlier?
05:26:18earHertzonce the finger come sup, the boost is turned off
05:26:46earHertzit's better, but the queue still isn't consumed fast enough
05:28:01earHertzoh, on a related issue, I've experiemented with two forms of accelaerated scrolling
05:28:03 Quit dj-fu (Connection timed out)
05:29:00earHertzn form scrolls the list in bigger jumps after the scroll whell has been "turned" 360 degrees; for each "turn" up to five revs, the jump is increased
05:29:18earHertzfrom scroll by line to scroll by page, to scroll 1%, then 10%, then 25%
05:29:53Paul_The_NerdI don't even get through one page of elements with a full 360 degree rotation...
05:29:57earHertzI also have a version where the area initially touched sets teh scroll factor: upper left quadrent is by page, lower left by 10%, etc.
05:31:03earHertzYou'll fins that how far yiou get depends on now fast you move. Ironically, moving faster gets you LESS scrolling, because the queue isn't consumed and teh "keystrokes" are discarded
05:31:19Paul_The_NerdI know, but it also depends on font size and other things
05:31:28daurn|laptopPaul_The_Nerd: where to from now?
05:31:32Paul_The_NerdA "number of rotations" based system is flawed since it will vary based on screen sizes.
05:31:38Paul_The_NerdHow bout something like this:
05:31:45 Join JBGood [0] (
05:31:47Paul_The_NerdNormal method is single element scrolls
05:32:10Paul_The_NerdTap on one half the wheel (left, right, top, or bottom half) then release and tap again to start scrolling by page.
05:32:23Paul_The_NerdTap on one half, then press the other half and start scrolling for 10%
05:32:31earHertzPaul_The_Nerd: my second mod does exactly that, except you don't have to tap
05:32:33Paul_The_NerdForget about 25%. That way it's less location dependent and more gesture
05:32:51earHertzwhere you begin teh scroll determines the scroll method
05:32:54Paul_The_NerdI don't like the concept of having to think about specifically where I touch the wheel, and think it might be better if it's _how)
05:33:23Paul_The_Nerddaurn|laptop: Look at existing rockbox bootloader code, and start working on a bootloader, as it somewhat says in the newport page.
05:33:55earHertzPaul_The_Nerd: if you wan't accurate scroll delta, by the way, see my patch:
05:34:06Paul_The_NerdearHertz: A position dependent method is especially bad for blind users, users with the nano's terrible small wheel, or users trying to manipulate it while not looking.
05:34:22earHertzYes, you're right
05:34:49Paul_The_NerdThat's why I was suggesting the gesture method. There's always an opposite half relative to where you first touch it, and you only need to know where you touched relative, not absolutely. :)
05:35:25earHertzGood point
05:36:20earHertzultimately, what I want is to tie method to the speed of teh scrolling. with my patch, I think I can make that happen
05:36:52earHertzthere's also an existing patch by chris russel that does that, but it's ha,pered by the bug that my patch fixes
05:37:31earHertzwit the bug, it's very very hard to get a high scroll delta, because the original posotion is reset (incorrectly, I think) if teh queue is not emty
05:38:45 Join Sinbios [0] (
05:38:49Paul_The_NerdIf I recall there queue was cleared so that it would never continue scrolling after you lifted your finger from the wheel.
05:39:06earHertzwell, not quite
05:39:18earHertzthe key isn't actually discard, it's never posted
05:39:37earHertzdoing a queue_clear when teh finger lifts also works
05:39:50*earHertz has tried several things
05:40:34earHertzalso, making teh scroll threshold three works fine; the cvs code uses a threashold of five
05:41:17dwihnoIs the wheel excessivly sensitive, or is it just me btw?
05:41:39dwihno(compared to the stock fw, that is)
05:41:40earHertzdwihno: what kind of ipod?
05:41:47dwihnoearHertz: 5g
05:41:49Paul_The_NerdWell, it'll be nice to see some improvements in the scrolling. There probably hasn't been much looking at it. Feature freeze now, and before that more major things than UI woes, y'know? Hehehe.
05:42:23earHertz5g has 96 absolute scroll positions. the cvs code generates a key if teh abs( delta) > 4

05:43:11earHertzdwihno: experiment with chnaging that threshold. for me, using three works better
05:43:17daurn|laptopPaul_The_Nerd: for the bootlodaer, do you mean to make one that is flashed to firmware?
05:43:19daurn|laptopor what?
05:43:35earHertzor, actually, two: abs( delat) > 2
05:43:38dwihnoearHertz: 3? that will just make it more sensitive.. or will it?
05:43:54earHertzif you find it too sensitive, make it 7
05:43:58Paul_The_Nerddaurn|laptop: Depends on your device. iPods have a bootloader built in that loads code from disk, so we just had to place ours in the right place on disk. iRivers don't, so we had to flash ours on it.
05:44:08dwihnoearHertz: it's those things that should be configurable :D

08:01:20Zendeferahey, I just bought a ipod video 30gb , and followed the instructions, and it still boots into the apple os. one thing I noticed is that the bootpartition.bin is not 112mb, its like 80 mb, whats up?
08:02:13jncoh hum

08:08:45JdGordonby the file size diff im gonna guess u forgot to patch it with rockbox?
08:10:16Zendeferano, I just bought the ipod video just like 2 hours ago, I downloaded the ipodpatcher.exe, and ipod_fw.exe, and the bootloader-video.bin. I found out the drive number for it, then I did ipodpatcher -r 1 bootpartition.bin, the filesize was like 80mb, but the info on the website says it should be 112
08:10:58JdGordondont u run ipodpatcher twice?

08:27:21Presencethats my "retail" bootpartition
08:27:51ZendeferaI just bought a video 30gb, and I am only getting a 80mb file.
08:28:02Zendeferaany ideas?
08:28:06PresenceBeats the heck outta me. :Z^/
08:28:25Zendeferayou followed the instructions on the website?
08:28:37PresenceYep, to the letter.
08:28:46Zendeferathe ipod video manual doesn't have any instructions for installing the bootloader
08:29:01Zendeferaso damned wierd.
08:29:12Zendeferaand there is only one ipodpatcher for all ipods right?
08:29:23PresenceI did it from the wiki's instructions... I was scared at first, but really, it shouldn't matter at all in the end.
08:29:55PresenceI figure I'll never "go back", and if I *do* have to go back, I'll just do Apple's own "make it an ipod again" program.
08:30:01Zendeferado you have the url for the instructions you used?
08:30:19Zendeferabec maybe mine are screwed up
08:30:28EbErThow do you install the alternate bootloader for photo ipods that auto boots the regular os?
08:30:28Presencegrabbing it now.
08:31:23EbErTi tried just typing in it instead of the regular one
08:31:35EbErTreplacing the regular ipod bootimage
08:32:02PresenceYou know, the next step after "read existing apple firmware" is:
08:32:03Presence ipod_fw -o apple_os.bin -e 0 bootpartition.bin
08:32:12Presenceif it works, then there shouldn't be any concern.
08:32:20EbErTFor not so enthusiastic iPod Photo/Color owners, MarcusBrito created a boot loader that inverts the way rockbox works: it will load the original firmeware by default, and only load Rockbox if the user keeps MENU pressed while booting. You can get this bootloader here.
08:32:27EbErTthat part.
08:32:48Presencemaking that 5 meg apple_os.bin
08:33:24PresenceEbert, apparently those 4thGen owners on the forums are frustrated by constant problems getting their ipods to boot, I'm not suprised.
08:33:50Presence04/24/2006 09:05 PM 6,455,420 apple_os.bin
08:34:07EbErTi just wanted to try this instead, i got the regular one to work no problem presence
08:34:07ZendeferaI am retrying everything.
08:34:36Zendeferaits just wierd how the ipodpatcher -r n bootpartition.bin command got a 80mb file instead of a 112mb file.
08:34:59Presencewell, thats the size of a Nano image... :^/
08:35:12Zendeferayeah I know, but I bought a ipod video 30gb.
08:35:47Presencewhy not a 60Gig?
08:36:10EbErTe) Create the new Rockbox-enabled image file containing the Rockbox Bootloader
08:36:27Zendeferadidn't have enough for the difference.
08:36:31EbErTipod_fw -g color -o rockboot.bin -i apple_os.bin bootloader-color.bin
08:37:05EbErTinstead of bootloader-color, its called bootloader-color_nodefault.bin (something like that). i typed that in instead, but didn't work
08:37:36PresenceDo you HAVE the "nodefault" file in your folder?
08:37:48EbErTyes, all in same folder
08:37:53Presencebeats me.
08:38:25EbErTdo you have to delete things and redo all the code to change the bootloader?
08:39:56EbErTi kinda retyped everything. went the same until the bootloader install part
08:40:13EbErTguess i'll delete all the rockbox stuff and try again

08:42:54PresenceI think you can push through the 80meg-vs-115meg thing and keep going.
08:43:14Presenceif you tank the booter, you can totalyl just use Apple's restore gizmo to put everything back to stock again.
08:44:56Zendeferawhere do I get apples restore prog?

08:45:24EbErTyou should already have it
08:45:35EbErTif not, on
08:46:18Zendeferaok, could it be that I have a brand new ipod with out any new updates? and thats why my bootpartition.bin is only 80mb?
08:47:04EbErTmaybe. always good to update it to most recent before messing with things
08:47:26PresenceZende, I did my rockbox install immediatly after opening the ipod's box... didn't even boot it into Apple or attach it to iTunes.
08:47:47EbErTheh, geek :)
08:48:00Zendeferafucking wierd.
08:48:08Presencegoogle for "apple ipod restore"
08:48:11Presenceheh :)
08:48:24EbErTi say just try to go all the way through first
08:48:27EbErTsee if it works
08:48:39Presencei agree.. just balls out do it.
08:48:56EbErTanyone tried the nodefault bootloader?
08:49:09Presenceremember, all the rockbox bootloader wants is that 5 megs of whatever guts it takes to make the retail OS "go". Rockbox takes over the rest of the bootloader.
08:49:31Presenceand if you hose your ipod, you won't even bother with the "original" 80 meg file anyways, you'll use Apple's "restore" program anyways.
08:50:22PresenceEbert, why would you WANT to go to Retail ever? I mean, Maaaaaybe for video, but ugh. I've booted into retail only once, just to *see* if video was worth the effort of reencoding videos for such a small screen. it wasn't.
08:50:54Zendeferawell my problem is I installed the bootloader, but It didn'ttake. it just booted directly into the apple software.
08:51:00Zendeferashould the ipod be off when I am doing this?
08:51:03EbErTpresence, i can't get the id3 tags to work
08:51:14PresenceZend, wow! hahaha, thats kinda a cool little bug. :)
08:51:20EbErTand it likes to shut off and boot back up on its own
08:51:35PresenceThe ipod can't be "off" when you connect it as a drive letter to your computer... it goes into USB disc mode.
08:51:51Zendeferaok, I'm blind, so I can't see the screen.
08:51:54EbErTand sometimes starts playing on its own.
08:51:56Zendeferaso I am on the drive hehe.
08:52:03Presence"shut off and boot back up on its own" <−− maybe thats the sleep timer or the auto-power-off of Rockbox?

09:17:00EbErTdurn id3 tags!
09:17:20linuxstb_Logicwax: The same way as you have always done - just plug it in.
09:17:26Logicwaxnot workin
09:17:27PresenceLogicwax, just plug yer ipod into the computer's USB port, it will automatically go into disk mode.
09:17:32Logicwaxit doesnt
09:17:37Logicwaxwell, im using firewire...does that matter?
09:17:49linuxstb_Yes - Rockbox doesn't detect firewire.
09:17:56Logicwaxah! well then
09:18:04Logicwaxand does rockbox make use of the peizo clicker?
09:18:09linuxstb_You need to go into disk mode manually - reboot your ipod, and hold SELECT+PLAY
09:19:17Presencelogicwax, no, the piezo speaker doesn't have a driver in rockbox, so it remains silent for now.
09:19:23Logicwaxah, ok
09:19:39linuxstb_There's a patch on the patch tracker for it though. you can patch it to click?

09:30:03linuxstb_Logicwax: Just hold down the NEXT or PREV button to seek.
09:30:32Logicwaxyeah...i mean the kinda seak where you use the wheel though
09:30:35EbErTi've found a lot of .wps files that skip or make load times long
09:30:38Logicwaxthat at all possible?
09:30:51EbErTwhen is 2.0 coming out?
09:31:20EbErTseek through one song, or the list of songs
09:31:40Presencethe retail Apple OS uses the wheel to seek in a song and not volume??
09:31:44linuxstb_EbErT: 2.0 came out a couple of years ago... 3.0 is due by the 29th.
09:31:45EbErTdon't press middle button like in retail

09:31:54EbErTthat's what i mean, thx

09:32:45PresenceooOOOOooooh, wow, trippy.
09:32:49Logicwaxyeah....i wanna seek like on the apple one...where you can use the wheel to spin to the end of a song
09:33:08EbErTkinda annoying, cuz it goes back to volume control after what seems like too short a period

09:34:46EbErTbut its not stable enough for me for some reason
09:35:47linuxstb_EbErT: No-one is claiming it's perfectly stable... It's still a newborn baby in Rockbox terms.
09:35:59EbErTyes, i konw
09:36:19PresenceI'm sure the 4thGen issues will be ironed out after the 3.0 freeze and people start poking around more.
09:36:29EbErTsomeone have the id3 cache tell you what files it has trouble with, or skip them
09:37:03EbErTso all 4g's are having the most problems?
09:37:10Logicwaxohhh..i can browse nfo files

09:41:12Logicwaxits skipping when it tries gapless to next track
09:42:09Presencefor shits, and I really shouldn't be offering this since I don't know the consequences:
09:42:23Presencego into the debug menu and up the cpu boosting.
09:42:30Presencelike make it "1" so its always boosted
09:42:39Presencethen see if it yer skipping still.

09:44:56EbErTthat's the best i can think to do.
09:45:15Logicwaxah found ti
09:45:47EbErTdon't do that, he's crazy man :D
09:46:14Logicwaxso lower number is faster cpu?
09:46:24Logicwaxmine was at 2 by default
09:46:29Logicwaxwhich is 72,000,000
09:48:08Presencebeats me.. I was guessing that "0" was non-boosted, "1" was auto-mode, "2" was always-boosted
09:48:54 Join ashridah [0] (
09:48:56linuxstb_No - it's a boost counter.
09:49:26linuxstb_i.e. different parts of Rockbox increment and decrement the counter depending on whether they want to boost the CPU. Whenever the count is at 1 or more, Rockbox boosts the CPU.
09:49:50Logicwaxnot even the boxes theme works w/o skipping....damn
09:49:53linuxstb_So if you manually increment the boost counter, it will always be at 1 or more.
09:49:54Logicwaxcus i like that one
09:50:17Presenceso its more of a view-only area, altering the value doesn't change the boost?
09:51:00Presenceoh, nevermind, I get it.
09:51:23Logicwaxdamn, this plays flac? fuck i thought that was the part of rockbox that still skipped
09:51:25Logicwaxholy shit
09:51:31Logicwaxdo OGG's play good now too?
09:51:31linuxstb_Logicwax: It _will_ work, but at the moment, hardly any effort has gone into optimisation on the ipod. Currently everything is working too slowly.
09:51:53linuxstb_Logicwax: At the moment, vorbis decodes more efficiently than MP3 on the ipods.
09:52:05linuxstb_So you'll experience less (or no) skips.
09:52:12Logicwaxyea? so OGG is working 100% now?
09:52:27linuxstb_It always has...
09:52:53Logicwaxi thought OGG and FLAC weren't working 100% cus it required too much cpu
09:53:03linuxstb_I use FLAC, which is one of Rockbox's fastest decoders.
09:53:15linuxstb_I have no problems even with the peakmeter enabled when playing FLAC.
09:53:30Logicwaxyea? man! im listening to TOOL in FLAC on my ipod....fuck yeah
09:53:52Logicwaxinteresting how mp3 is the slower then them
09:54:44linuxstb_Mathematically, FLAC is a lot simpler than MP3 and vorbis. So that's not a surprise. MP3 should be faster than vorbis, but on the ipods the vorbis decoder has more optimisation.
09:56:59Logicwaxcan rockbox do apples AAC?
09:57:55linuxstb_Yes, but that's even slower than MP3. My only AAC file (128kbps) works, but I think it struggles with higher bitrates.
09:59:12Logicwaxim just so happy FLAC and OGG work 100%
10:00:13linuxstb_BTW, who told you that FLAC and Ogg needed too much CPU?
10:00:29Logicwaxlast i read on the ipodlinux project some months ago
10:00:37Logicwaxbut ive been so busy with school i havent looked in a bit
10:00:51Logicwaxand rockbox _is_ linux-based, right?

10:07:40{EDF}SSHas anyone made nethack for rockbox? :P
10:07:51linuxstb_amiconn: Yes.
10:07:52ashridah{EDF}SS: no, surprisingly.
10:08:03linuxstb_I should still have a patch somewhere...
10:08:11JdGordonlinuxstb_: well getting drm working wouldnt really be promoting drm.. more freeing the poor sods that pay for it
10:08:14amiconnlinuxstb_: Do you remember what speed you got?
10:08:18{EDF}SSashridah it'd be nice to have, but probably difficult to play :)
10:08:18ashridah{EDF}SS: doing things would be a pain tho, with the limited number of keys.
10:08:23amiconnThis was with the C version, correct?
10:08:43jchilleruplinuxstb_, It's definitely not promoting DRM
10:08:44linuxstb_I can't remember, but it should be in the logs.
10:08:51jchillerupIt's removing it so that it can be played
10:09:00ashridah{EDF}SS: well, it's turn based, so perhaps not.
10:09:08linuxstb_jchillerup: Just use hymn on your PC to remove it...
10:09:12ashridahjust need an efficient menu for the different keys
10:09:22jchillerupWell, yeah, but it could be nice on the ipod
10:09:31Zendeferalinuxstd you know anything aout the voice features of rockbox?

10:10:00 Join IcyStorM [0] (
10:10:14linuxstb_jchillerup: Then feel free to implement it. But I'm pretty sure I speak for all the devs when I say that DRM is not wanted in Rockbox.
10:10:28{EDF}SShaha DRM who would want that?
10:10:45jchillerupI would want a tool that strips the DRM of AAC files....
10:10:48Zendeferawhat I am wondering, how dificult would it be able to add a speack option to directories and files, so it actually reads the dirs and files, so instead of spell="j a c k s m i t h - ..." it'll say jack smith dash
10:11:02{EDF}SSon yeah, to REMOVE DRM would be nice
10:11:06linuxstb_amiconn: I made the patch on 24th March, so that will be the day to search the logs.
10:11:11jchillerupThat's what I mean, {EDF}SS
10:11:23Zendeferalikeit reads the menus
10:11:40JdGordonare the players even fast enough to rip the drm and play it otf?
10:11:50linuxstb_jchillerup: Removing DRM is something you should do on your PC as soon as you buy a track.
10:11:53jchillerupI don't know.. But I know there is no FPU
10:12:03Zendeferadrm blows :)
10:12:07jchilleruplinuxstb_, Well, yes
10:12:44amiconnHmm, 2 frames per second... :(
10:12:48jchillerupbut when people convert from itunes-controlled ipods to rockbox-freed ipods, they probably won't understand why none of their songs will play
10:13:01jchillerupAnd that is because of DRM
10:13:12GaloisIMO people need to be made aware of the DRM issue rather than hiding it from them
10:13:14jchillerupIt could start by stripping the DRM, and *then* play the track
10:13:37jchillerupGalois, you could make it so that it says "Stripping DRM, please wait."
10:13:39Zendeferagalois :) long time no see my friend.
10:13:43markunjchillerup: or displaying a message that it cannot playback a file with DRM
10:13:55jchillerupYes, and what would the newbies say?
10:13:59Zendeferaso any familier with the voice code?
10:13:59JdGordonalthough adding riping to rockbox would lead it to some pretty merky waters

10:16:10amiconn15..25% realtime
10:16:30linuxstb_amiconn: Shorten is even faster than FLAC, but I don't think I got as far as testing it.
10:16:52amiconnShorten also uses lcd_decode, correct?
10:17:02amiconnBah, lpc_decode of course
10:17:12linuxstb_I can't remember...
10:17:26linuxstb_I don't think it uses exactly the same function as flac though.

10:24:05amiconnThere's some leaked documentation about the dsp core
10:24:17amiconnWhat's unknown is how to use the interfaces
10:24:40linuxstb_I'm not 100% sure about 22MHz. It definitely worked lower than the default, but I can't remember how low.
10:24:40Logicwaxcus everytime i hold down actuallly shuts completely off...and when i turn it back on, its like booting
10:24:43Logicwaxso thats why i asked
10:24:57amiconnAlso, mas dsp assembler is rather nightmarish
10:25:13linuxstb_Are the opcodes part of that leaked documentation?
10:25:21amiconn(1) it's a harvard architecture, with 1x code and 2x data memory
10:25:52amiconn(2) You have to keep an eye on the number of cycles an instruction takes, and sync the pipeline yourself
10:26:24amiconnIf you read a register too early, the result of the previous instruction might not yet be there...

10:28:07linuxstb_Logicwax: No, there is no sleep mode in Rockbox. It may happen, but we prefer to do things to make boot time as quick as possible. If you remove the Apple firmware from your ipod, you'll significantly increase boot-up time.

12:51:51peturwouldn't know, don't have an ipoo
12:52:22amiconnpetur: I suggest to wait for Linus finding out more about the hardware. If the eeprom really isn't i2c controlled, (1) there's at least one missing signal line and (2) I doubt that the signal lines are really hooked up in parallel to the pcf50606 i2c
12:52:47peturamiconn: I'm sure the wiki is wrong
12:53:51dj-furomanpress, toggle the 'hold' switch it's at the top,

13:09:53peturamiconn: but I looked at the 2 big images from lostlogic at the top
13:10:00markunperhaps we shouldn't allow the text and background colours to be the same..
13:10:26peturmarkun: been discussed before, somebody should just do it...
13:10:33amiconnWhat's irritating is that the 24Cxx datasheet always have an A affixed to the code, while the 25Cxx datasheet hasn't
13:10:42amiconnmarkun: We don't...

13:12:50amiconnHmm, looks like 402...
13:13:09*amiconn wonders why the small pics then show C02...
13:13:34amiconnMaybe there are several hardware revisions with different eeproms?
13:13:48peturthey can change chips during production if functionality is identical
13:13:49*amiconn hopes that this isn't the case
13:15:41amiconnI mean that there might be pcb versions with the 24c02 and others with the 25c02...
13:17:12peturI can't beleive they'd do that
13:18:07amiconnThe archos player exists in 3 different hardware revisions. The latest even has a different lcd with different charset
13:18:10peturswitching between spi and i2c? have a way to detect hw revision in firmware...
13:18:24peturtoo much trouble, no gain
13:18:33amiconnThe recorder has several details differing between versions
13:19:05amiconnMaybe an old chip becomes unavailable?
13:19:19petur24c02 is *very* common
13:19:19amiconnThat's what archos did in the Ondio - btw a rather weird thing

13:20:54amiconnWhen Sipex withdrew from the el driver market, they redesigned the circuit for the NPC SM8141BV
13:22:25peturI can believe that case, but for the 24c02 I see no reason. And if the rest is i2c, why start using spi?
13:22:42peturunless they started with spi of course

16:57:56DgentlyThanks for the advice.
16:58:17bluebrotherthen add a \makeindex at the page where the index should be generated, but latex needs to run makeidx manually.
16:58:32bluebrotherI already thought about adding an index myself.
16:58:51FebsMaybe that's something we could target for 3.1!
16:58:54bluebrotherbut I won't have time looking into it deeper until next month.
16:59:48FebsFor \opt, should we be using IRIVER_H100_PAD or iriver1xx? Is IRIVER_H100_PAD for general use or only in the context of button configures? (Sorry if these are pretty basic questions.)
16:59:50bluebrotherimo some of the platform specific stuff is a bit clumsy, I'd like to have a better solution for 3.1
17:00:48bluebrotherFebs, I haven't introduced those so I'm not sure how this was intended. I guess it would be the best to use the PAD stuff when referring to the keyboard and h1xx when referring to the device itself.
17:01:22bluebrotherbut I'd like it better to be mostly complete independent from the device itself and only have capabilities, like HAVE_RECORDING
17:02:06FebsAgreed. It would be useful to have categories such as "IPOD," "IRIVER," etc. for things like the manual that are platform specific, but don't vary much from model to model on a particular platform.
17:02:15Febsmanual/installation instructions
17:04:37FebsUsing \opt{IPOD} would be easier than \opt{ipod4g,ipodcolor,ipodnano,ipodmini,ipodvideo}. Also easier to update it, for example, support for 3g is added.
17:06:30 Join tucoz [0] (n=martin@rockbox/developer/tucoz)
17:06:45tucozFebs, we could add that. I have thought of it myself some time ago
17:08:18FebsI think that we should. Again using 3g as an example, it will be a nightmare to have to update every single \opt that references the different ipod platforms.
17:08:22tucozregarding the key-macros. I think it's a pita to use them. However, they were added to mimic the way the rockbox-source works. I would want to have a simpler way of defining key-tables, but I can not think of a another way this coult be done.
17:11:23tucozit's a moot-point. Now we can define the keys for several players by using their shared pad (IPOD_4G_PAD). If another player gets added with the same pad, it's only the platform.tex that needs the define
17:12:04 Quit tvelocity ("Ex-Chat")
17:12:17tucozBut for several of the older players, this is not the case. I don't think we'll ever add another player with a IRIVER_H100_PAD for instance.

17:24:06tucozhave a look in the platform files to see how the keys are defined
17:24:31*Febs goes looking ...
17:24:59tucozthe opts are a common denominator. It is not certain that a target with SWCODEC has the ButtonStop defined
17:27:18tucozThe only keys that are in common for all the targets are left and right
17:27:57tucozeven if we could
17:29:06 Quit baaps (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
17:29:13FebsOK, bear with me if I am being dense here, but why can't we define the buttons the same way we define, for example, \playertype? I'll give you an example:
17:29:15tucoz, in theory add IRIVER to the optable commands and use this for the keytables, it is not probable that this will work on the next iriver target
17:30:04tucozfor now, both h100 and h300 share the same keys but with different naming. However, this is not likely with a newer iriver target.
17:31:17FebsOK, I understand that, but why can't we define buttons without using the \opt, in the same manner that we define, \playertype, or \dap? So for example:
17:31:50FebsH100: \newcommand{\ButtonUp}{Up}
17:31:59tucozI get it. But it is not possible, because all the players do not share the same keys.
17:32:09Febsipodnane: \newcommand{\ButtonUp}{Scroll Up}
17:33:48tucozthink of the archoses for instance. Those have F1, F2 etc. Those keys are not available for the other targets
17:34:17daurn|laptoptucuz: you have a 40*?
17:34:38FebsI guess that the difference is that you are thinking in terms of buttons. I am thinking that we define buttons in terms of functions. For example, all platforms have a button that invokes the main menu, right?
17:34:39tucozdaurn|laptop, what is that?
17:35:22FebsCouldn't we define \ButtonMainMenu in each platform, and then use that instead of a complicated /opt?
17:35:29 Join daurnimator [0] (n=daurnima@unaffiliated/daurn)
17:35:51FebsIt wouldn't matter that the button that called the main menu is the AB button on iriver, the "menu" button on ipod, etc.
17:36:04tucozFebs, I see. Hmm. That might be an option. But, we would still have to opt the key tables as the number of keys differ
17:36:16daurnimatoreg, ipod has 4 buttons + hold + scroller
17:36:31tucozdaurnimator, I do not have an archos.

17:38:21Febstucoz, perhaps, but to use another example, if we defined, say \ButtonVolumeUp, I think it would make thinks much easier. The button mapping table entry would be something "Volume up\\ButtonVolumeUp"
17:38:52tucozFebs, right. I understand what you mean.
17:38:58tom__what's the default battery capacity?
17:39:04tucoztom__, what player?
17:39:28FebsSuppose a new platform, with dedicated volume buttons, was ported to Rockbox. We'd just define \newcommand{\ButtonVolumeUp}{Volume Up} in the platform file and no changes would be necessary elsewhere in the manual.
17:39:34tucozdon't know. it's 1300mAh for the h1xx
17:39:47peturI think it's 1400mAh
17:39:55Hansmaulwurfon H120
17:40:00FebsI think that H100 and H300 use the same battery.

17:56:08tucozWe should force the plugin writers to write a .tex document before we accept the plugin to cvs
17:56:09peturno idea if we're boosting
17:56:22bluebrotherhmm, ok, this is way more often than when playing.
17:56:37bluebrotheriirc the hdd is the main power eater, isn't it?
17:57:01peturit is
17:57:08Febstucoz, my gut feeling is that even if we had to still use opt-hell for plugins, my suggestion would still be more efficient for the bulk of the manual.
17:57:26FebsBut let me think about it a bit further and maybe try to map out all of the functions we would need.
17:58:02tucozas it is now. The plugin chapter feels like the bulk of the manual. All plugins have a key-table and it's a bit hard to complete those...
17:58:21FebsLet me take a look at it and maybe I can come up with a sort of proof of concept.
17:58:30tucozFebs, sounds great.
17:59:10bluebrotherwouldn't it be possible to add a generic section which would mention the basic (direction, select) keys that are used in all plugins and only mention keys that are different?

22:33:33linuxstbEbErT: If you can find exactly which build was the first to not work, I'm sure that would help track down the problem.
22:34:06MikachuEbErT: 75 and 23
22:34:14Paul_The_Nerd75, 30, 24
22:34:18Paul_The_Nerd30 is the normal.
22:34:24linuxstblowlight: I'll have a look now.
22:34:35EbErTisn't that dangerous? could overheat?
22:35:01Mikachuunderclocking rarely causes overheating
22:35:09EbErTbb, i'll find which one i was using
22:35:13Paul_The_NerdEbErT: Naaah. Before we had CPU speed switching working properly, I ran mine for a full charge to empty at 75 without problem. They're rated for higher than that (I think the lowest are rated to 80)
22:37:04Paul_The_NerdMost people only knew that CPU speed switching went in because their menus got "sluggish" after, since the processor wasn't quite running fast enough for them at 30.
22:38:55sharpei say we implement four speeds, instead of three.

22:50:02davidc__linuxstb: nope, it [should] throw an undefined

22:59:34Aghasteri didnt know

23:12:11linuxstbNo, it's "1" - at least in my autoconf.h
23:12:43Bagderright, it should rather fail when _not_ building logf
23:13:01Bagderthen it sounds like a case when autoconf.h is not included properly
23:13:03linuxstbWhen it's undefined, it's 0 - at least that's my understanding.

23:13:23linuxstbOtherwise, we would all be complaining about those lines.
23:13:39Bagdergcc can thus treat undefined variables as 0 in #if lines

23:31:30Paul_The_NerdEbErT: It's actually something you have to turn on.
23:32:03EbErTdo all of you overdrive your ipod cpu too :)
23:32:17Paul_The_NerdMine's a Nano, which doesn't suffer from the freezing bug.
23:32:33davidc__just for the record - us over @ iPL seem to work fine up to 90mhz
23:32:41davidc__we haven't run all the models up that high though
23:32:44jakub31337linuxstb: ok i think that 20060517 is working
23:32:46Paul_The_Nerddavidc__: It wasn't until we clocked _down_ the CPU that it showed up.
23:32:49davidc__and we do notice increased heat @ the back
23:33:03davidc__Paul_The_Nerd: hrm - you sure you're doing the clock speed changing right?
23:33:20davidc__you might be doing something funky clocking wise which is causing interrupts to drop or something...
23:33:24Paul_The_Nerddavidc__: The person who wrote it is fairly confident, but I can't say anything in the matter.
23:33:31davidc__does it occur at the lower speed? or at transitions?
23:33:43Paul_The_NerdHaven't tracked that down yet.

23:34:08Paul_The_NerdI suspect at lower speed, but there's nothing _solid_ I believe that says this is true.
23:34:58davidc__hrm... maybe you're not hitting a necessary interrupt timing or something?
23:35:01Paul_The_NerdThe problem is (and no offense to them) that the bug reports are entirely from users, and most of them don't seem too interested in anything but "How do I use it without it freezing" and it's a bit hard to get them to try again and watch what's happening when ti freezes.
