00:02:15preglowanyway, i need to sleep
00:02:17peturimho: releasing a version that has shortcomings is bad for the reputation
00:02:37amiconnYes, but extending the freeze doesn't help either
00:02:49peturno it isn't :/
00:02:49amiconnWe extended for 2 weeks, and not much has happened...

03:01:55XavierGr'fag' on nickelodeon, really?

03:54:20Paul_The_NerdFalco98: Well with the number of iPod users, it was just more convenient to stuff them into boxes so I don't have to ask "So, which iPod do you have" first for every support request. :-P
03:54:30sharpeQwerty keyboard layouts, anyway.
03:54:49Falco98Paul_The_Nerd: actually i meant the "new ports" area, since i was griping about it in that one thread last week...
03:54:57sharpePaul_The_Nerd: why am i a Rockbox Expert? :)
03:55:44Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: Honestly, because you were in the channel when I was creating the group, and I needed someone for it, and knew that even though you don't actually _post_ (or didn't until I made you one) you'd probably qualify as one if you did.
03:55:57sharpescore me! heh...
03:56:24Paul_The_NerdFalco98: Ah yes. That seemed like a very important thing to do, so people don't keep asking for the same new port over and over, and not realizing there are other people interested in it.

08:49:00amiconnThe very first rockbox release was called 1.0
08:49:13midkayamiconn, unfortunately for me :)
08:50:41*midkay is attempting a new credits roll
08:53:22Paul_The_NerdWhat will be different about it?
08:53:33amiconnBut 1.0 was indeed ~4 years ago
08:53:59amiconnIf we still do not release today, perhaps the 4th anniversary of 1.0 would be a nice date to release 3.0
08:54:22amiconnThat would be June 2nd - Friday
08:54:26midkayPaul_The_Nerd, i based it on the clock credits roll.. instead of the text sliding up like a movie, individual lines fly in from the left until the LCD is filled, and then each one flies out to the right until the LCD is empty. that's how it works now anyways.
08:54:35midkayamiconn, hey, pretty cool..
08:54:42midkaymight be worth the couple-day wait..
08:54:53B4gd3ramiconn: sounds like a plan!
08:54:59midkayalso considering this is the biggest rockbox milestone since 1.0 :)
08:55:09midkaynew targets, swcodec, the works..
08:55:25Paul_The_NerdWhat was it that rolled over from 1.x to 2.0?
08:55:40midkayrecording is the only major feature i can think of..
08:56:00amiconnNothing very special afaik - but then 2.0 was the first rockbox version I ever used
08:56:03midkayi think 2.0->2.1 should have been the 2.0 rollover (e.g. 1.5 -> 2.0) - but the plugin loader wasn't anticipated..
08:56:21midkayoh, and 2.1 also marked "rockbox in flash" on archos.
08:56:48*B4gd3r remembers lots of harsh words on the rockbox 1.0 release on slashdot
08:57:50markunXavierGr: it's called DAC :)
08:58:31midkaythis is looking pretty cool if i may say so myself. :)
08:58:38midkaynow new lines fly in in place of the old ones..
08:59:48B4gd3rsounds like a neat way

09:00:31midkayB4gd3r, didn't you write the current sine-scroll mabobby thing?
09:00:37B4gd3rI did
09:01:10amiconnmidkay: I hope that it works correctly wrt utf-8, that it will be readable on the H1x0 display (text needs to stop shortly because the LCD is teh slowness), and that you didn't forget the player (or kept the old scroller for it)
09:01:31midkayamiconn, this is even better for H1x0 because the lines completely stop for .. several seconds..
09:01:38midkayand i didn't touch the player scroller, either.

09:01:50 Nick B4gd3r is now known as B4gder (n=daniel@
09:02:18amiconnWell, the lines could fly in on the player as well, but that's probably not a good idea because most names don't fit on a line,
09:02:29amiconnso they wouldn't be readable when the stop
09:02:36midkayamiconn, in fact a name should stay on the lcd for.. depends on the user's font.. but a reasonable one e.g. 10-12px high.. probably 4-7 seconds..
09:02:56B4gderon the recorder too?
09:03:03B4gdersounds awfully slow
09:03:12B4gderwe're reaching 200 names
09:03:14midkayB4gder, but since all the lines are filled..
09:03:14*amiconn would need to see & test it
09:03:18midkaythat's like 7 seconds per screenful..
09:03:25midkayrecorders are smaller, so they move quicker..
09:03:31midkayi have yet to test it on recorder, true.
09:03:45midkaynot quite sure how it will work, i'll check it out and find a solution if it doesn't.. or not commit it. :)
09:03:57*amiconn has 8 lines of text on recorder & ondio, except with his in-car font selection
09:04:24B4gderand the problem with names that don't fit occur on archos lcds too
09:04:30B4gderI mean bitmap lcds
09:04:40midkayyeah, that's.. dunno..
09:04:55Paul_The_NerdHow does the current scrolling handle names that don't fit?
09:05:03midkayit doesn't..
09:05:05midkaythey're just cut off.
09:05:05B4gderPaul_The_Nerd: it just shows the leftmost part
09:05:10*amiconn wonders whether we should write the names in their native script, i.e. russian names in cyrillic etc
09:05:10 Join petur [0] (
09:05:17Paul_The_NerdSo, really, it doesn't introduce a new problem, it just preserves an existing one?
09:05:27midkayright, and i can't think of a good workaround for it.. hmm..
09:05:40amiconnProbably not very feasible
09:05:51midkaypossibly but painfully, the names that are >LCD_WIDTH could fly in to the right edge..
09:05:57Paul_The_NerdAutomatically split long names at word breaks, to take multiple lines?
09:06:11midkaywhen all of them are finished flying in, the >LCD_WIDTH ones could slide over (scroll left) until the left part shows up..
09:06:17midkayand then flying out could continue.
09:06:24amiconnmidkay: Do the names fly out to the opposite side from where they came?
09:06:30midkayamiconn, yeah.
09:06:33Paul_The_NerdOr just tell devs they need shorter names.
09:06:58Paul_The_Nerd"I'm sorry, your name is statistically likely to not fit on most font sizes, we're unable to accept your code."
09:07:13B4gderbtw, I'll reply to the SanDisk guy's email

09:09:04Paul_The_NerdI have to wonder, if a manufacturer includes Rockbox on a new player, do you think they'll support Rockbox, or offload that onto you guys?
09:09:16midkayi'm not subscribed. :(
09:09:18HClmaybe support a stable version
09:09:40midkayinteresting idea though.

09:13:45midkayto celebrate the fourth anniversary of 1.0
09:14:24Paul_The_NerdWell there's many hours to decide if we should make it a wee bit more momentous
09:14:53Paul_The_NerdI think since it's the advent of an entirely new era of Rockbox (sorta: software codec support) that may be a good idea.
09:14:58markunpetur: about your commit of the italian lang file: any idea why he changed all the accented chars to ASCII?
09:15:19midkayfew days' delay.. big deal. :)
09:15:36peturno idea... I don't know Italian language and I just trusted him
09:16:09markunI'm no italian (should have asked my girlfriend) but if he just does it because his favorit font doesn't support it I think the font should be fixed.
09:16:27amiconnmarkun: Maybe he didn't know that he should use ut-8 now
09:16:38amiconnBlah, ignore me
09:16:52*petur ignores amiconn :p
09:17:06markunMaybe his editor doesn't use UTF-8 and he thought the chars were wrong
09:17:14markunamiconn: no, you could be right
09:17:27peturamiconn: saw why my recording missed part of the song yesterday?
09:17:29*midkay is once again getting baffled by his own code. sigh.
09:17:47amiconnpetur: Yes.
09:18:27*amiconn wonders why someone doesn't know the features of a device he owns.
09:18:28peturamiconn: don't know if (and how) I should check how much headroom we have with unboosted recording
09:18:52peturamiconn: it was a small switch located *below* the CD
09:18:54amiconnHmm. If you had an spdif source, you could try to record at 96kHz
09:19:08*petur has h340
09:19:44amiconnHmm... if I find some time, I could do that... misusing the recorder as the really flexible spdif source it actually is :)
09:20:19amiconnWhile the MAS is only specified up to 48kHz, it happily generates a 96kHz spdif signal when setting pitch to 200%
09:20:31amiconn(and playing an 48kHz mp3 of course)
09:20:49amiconnShould even work with a .wav and the wavplay plugin
09:21:00amiconnNah, forget it
09:21:15amiconnWe wouldn't be able to deliver the data fast enough to the MAS
09:22:19*amiconn knows what to do
09:23:06amiconnRip a CD track, convert it to 96kHz wav but mark the file 48kHz, then encode with 320kbps. Should sound correct when played at 200% pitch

09:37:06midkayanother bug quashed.
09:40:17Paul_The_NerdBy the way, the Anniversary vs. Today question should probably be discussed and decided upon very soon, I'd guess.
09:42:42*midkay crosses fingers for this build of credits.rock to be bugfree
09:43:12JdGordonif your fixing credits.rock can u make it keeps the backlight on or not quit on a button press..
09:43:26midkaywhy not quit on a button press?
09:43:30Paul_The_NerdOne or the other
09:43:35midkayoh. right. misread.
09:43:41midkaybacklight on sounds like a good idea actually.
09:43:48midkayi keep tapping my scroll wheel to see the LCD.
09:44:01JdGordonye, how am i supposed to show off if my name is down the end and the backiight goes off??
09:44:10midkaylovely. it works.

09:46:34midkaybacklight 'fixed'.
09:47:07*midkay goes to try it on archos with a nervous expression
09:50:03midkayblast! settings reset for a new build..
09:50:07midkaybtw, i had an idea for this..
09:50:18amiconnDon't forget to reset the backlight timeout, and to ifdef the backlight handling properly
09:50:30midkayif the settings must be reset in case of a new api version or whatever, how about saving a config e.g. /.rockbox/autosave.cfg and then resetting?
09:50:49Paul_The_NerdWell ideally we'd just move to config files only.
09:50:51midkayamiconn, i reset it properly - but what do you mean, ifdef it?
09:50:52Paul_The_NerdOh, that reminds me.
09:51:02midkayPaul_The_Nerd, we can't 'yet' for some reason - but a quick workaround would be nice..
09:51:05JdGordon..or if it was reset.. and there is a /.rockbox/config.cfg file then load it automatically...
09:51:13midkaythis resetting business is bugging me a bit..
09:51:21Paul_The_NerdBy the way, tagnavi.config should be like, named tagdefault.config and copied to tagnavi.config if one isn't present.
09:51:54midkayPaul_The_Nerd, how about tagdefault.config is loaded if and only if tagnavi.config isn't present..
09:52:08Paul_The_NerdThen people would just edit the tagdefault.config
09:52:15Paul_The_NerdAnd then it'd get copied over when they put on a new build.
09:52:18midkaythen they're just idiots :)
09:52:24Paul_The_NerdJust like tagnavi.config gets overwritten now
09:52:25midkayah, i see what you mean..
09:52:46Paul_The_NerdThe default/example file needs to be separate from the used file, I think
09:52:50midkaymaybe a comment in tagdefault.config saying "do not edit this or your changes will be lost - create a new file" etc.
09:53:16amiconnmidkay: Hmm, it seems you don't need to ifdef. Ondio has no backlight, but it seems the variables & functions associated with it are still there
09:53:27midkayamiconn, ah, good to hear.
09:53:43*midkay tests credits on archos
09:54:07midkayworks, but. hm.
09:54:38amiconnIn fact that even makes some sense. Ondio *can* have a backlight. It's a mod, but one prepared by archos
09:54:51midkaycool. :)
09:56:27*amiconn will do this mod to an Ondio soon :)
09:57:20midkayawesome. :)
09:57:28midkayhm... *extends credit delay a bit*
09:57:40*JdGordon just did the tagdefaults.config thingy
09:57:58JdGordon3 tiny changes to tagtree.c
09:58:16midkaywhat is the functionality exactly?
09:58:49JdGordontries to load tagnavi.config, if it doesnt find it or cant load it it loads tagdefaults.config
09:59:01JdGordonjust need to rename tagnavi.config in the zip to tagdefaults
09:59:35midkayi think that if a comment is added in tagdefaults, that's a fine method..

10:31:26midkayjust fun..
10:32:14Paul_The_NerdAnd maybe more readable if the names pause a bit longer overall.
10:32:44midkayPaul_The_Nerd, overall they might be onscreen a bit shorter, but they don't constantly scroll (stay in one position the whole time) so they should be about as/more readable.. hard to say..
10:32:47midkaydepends on model, also.
10:33:08B4gderI'd guess it is more readable on the h1x0 series
10:33:18B4gderwhich is the one with the worst LCD afaik
10:33:34midkayif anyone here has an h140 maybe they could test it.
10:33:36B4gderI mean worst to read when moving

10:35:09midkayPaul_The_Nerd, h140 is mandatory - the raytraced refractions here increase the plugin size a bit. ;)

10:47:53RedBrevaIs there a patch for the reworked credits, I can try it on H140?
10:49:19midkayRedBreva, Paul_The_Nerd just tried it and approves.. i can email it to you if you'd like.
10:49:22Paul_The_NerdWell, it hard-freeze the h140 right now
10:49:31Paul_The_NerdBut that's just because it doesn't actually stop at the end of the credits list
10:49:33midkayit's not *quite* finished (few bugs to fix at the end) but it shows the effect.
10:49:43Paul_The_NerdI'd say half the speed the credits fly on at
10:50:06midkayPaul_The_Nerd, you mean halve the speed?
10:50:18Paul_The_NerdI knew I typed it wrong
10:50:31Paul_The_NerdVerbs, dammit.
10:50:32midkayhaha. i was going to say half.. then i thought.. wait.. :)
10:50:51midkayPaul_The_Nerd, anyways, thanks for the testing+feedback.
10:51:00Paul_The_NerdI like it though
10:51:05Paul_The_NerdMuch more readable overall than the existing one.
10:51:08midkayi'll see what i can do.. since the speed is different on every model, i might need target-specific defines to control the speed.
10:51:12midkaycool. :)
10:51:34midkay*sighs* getting things running consistently across platforms is annoying..
10:51:44midkayit'd be cool if they all had an equally fast LCD driver. :)
10:52:30midkayi'm already pushing towards the "too slow" point on iPod 5G. i guess i'll set up some defines.
10:53:04midkayhaha. Paul_The_Nerd, did credits.rock say "Ver. Haha."? :)
10:53:32Paul_The_NerdNo, it reported my version #
10:53:38midkayah, it'
10:53:58midkayah, right.
10:54:22midkayfirst-things-first.. fix the end-of-roll bit..
10:55:09Paul_The_NerdThat is quite an important thing there.
10:55:37midkayyeah. simple fix, too, i hope.
10:55:40midkay*tests first fix*
10:55:45midkayof course, first fixes never work, but.. :)
10:56:56midkayah, yes, defines will work wonderfully, i think.
10:57:05*midkay has it all planned out mentally.
10:58:53midkayPaul_The_Nerd, would a longer pause between line-flying sessions help, or is it entirely easily readable as-is?
10:58:58midkayeven just a half-second or second more?
10:59:38midkayi guess with slower animations it'd be even slower than the 'just fine' you rated it last build, so i suppose not.
10:59:59Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: They look great when they stop. It's only while they're moving. They move so fast that you can't even tell that the words fly on. You just sorta see them appear, popping in the list where the previous one was.
11:00:43midkayPaul_The_Nerd, but when they do stop they're all easily readable - meaning there's enough time to read them?
11:05:00midkayso glad you mentioned it.
11:05:18midkaydefines make it look 427.29% better for archos recorder too..
11:06:08midkayPaul_The_Nerd, mind testing another version then?
11:07:34Paul_The_NerdSure thing
11:08:33midkayah, Paul_The_Nerd - beware the end glitch.
11:08:37midkayit doesn't seem fixed.
11:08:50midkaybail out a bit early..
11:09:55Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Looks _great_ for the sliding. The pause once per screen is unnecessary though. You have more than enough time without it now.
11:10:18markunpetur: Just talked to my girlfriend and she told me the accented chars in the italian lang file were correct before the commit..
11:10:28midkayPaul_The_Nerd, excellent. will remove that pause (or shorten it to maybe half-second) - any input on animation? slightly faster/slower at all?
11:10:30 Join gtkspert_ [0] (
11:10:54Paul_The_NerdMaybe _slightly_ faster. It looks really good right now, but overall it feels a bit slow to recycle the whole screen.
11:11:17midkayeven slightly faster with the pause shrunk down to 1/2s?
11:11:24midkaycurrently it's at HZ/35..
11:11:32midkaymaybe i'll move it to HZ/42?
11:11:34midkaylucky numer 42 :)
11:12:18midkaymind if i send one last version with HZ/42 and much less pause to double-check that seems just right?

11:31:50dproPaul_the_nerd: trying to find a codec that won't skip at ~110%

11:32:48Paul_The_NerdYeah, flac's one of the fastest
11:32:52dproso I thought I might aswell try wav, but here the ide driver seems to be the bottleneck even when pitched _down_
11:33:05midkayflac is the fastest for my 5G.
11:33:14midkayi can't kill it if i try..
11:33:33Paul_The_NerdWell it might not be the IDE driver.
11:33:35dproso flac is less disk overhead (1/10) and still faster than everything else in codec speed

11:35:47linuxstbTurn up the pitch to a level where it starts to skip, then go into the Debug menu and choose "view audio thread"£
11:36:09Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: I've noted that with disk poweroff enabled, and "Anti-Skip" buffer only set to 5 seconds (which doesn't actually seem to be 5 seconds, I think) the compressed buffer actually gets exhausted easily in the middle of FLACs. Just as a related note.

12:55:25Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: Well, there are alot of things that vary between the iPods. Especially considering say, the lack of grayscale lib so several plugins don't exist for the minis. And I think that there's any overlap between iPod forums for the WPSes. When I first suggested the idea (maybe a month, month 'n a half ago now) I felt like I was quite often having to ask what sort of iPod someone had before I could help them.
12:56:17midkaythere's still the general iPod forum.. and the subforums for targetspecific questions/WPS' and stuff.
12:56:24JdGordonbut anrt most questions throughout the whole forum general rockbox bugs an not nescacerily only 1 target?
12:56:40midkaythe key word there would be 'most'.
12:56:55linuxstbThat's my point - users don't think of Rockbox as being multiplatorm, so they don't mention their player. If most of the threads happened under "General Discussion", then that would change how users think of Rockbox.
12:56:58Paul_The_NerdRight now there's quite a bit of differentiation between iPod targets, both in performance and bugs.
12:56:58midkaymany, perhaps. not all, and maybe someone has a question relating to a particular model?
12:57:10 Quit _FireFly_ ("Leaving")
12:57:26Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: Yeah, I can see that as valid. Dropping nearly all target specific forums would be necessary for that.

12:58:52markunPaul_The_Nerd: do you have the power to move a thread in the forum?
12:59:10Paul_The_Nerdmarkun: Yes
12:59:36Paul_The_NerdWell, guys, I'm open to suggestions for forum improvements really. It seemed to me that the best way to organize the iPod "lump" was to split it.
13:00:03JdGordonwhy not group targets more like how the code is split? i.e colour/b+w.. hw/sw codecs
13:00:28Paul_The_Nerdmarkun: What do you need moved?
13:00:30markunSome problems are really target specific..
13:00:38linuxstbMy suggestion would be to create more sub-forums under General Discussion - split by feature area such as "Music Playback", "Recording", "Plugins", "WPS/Thems" etc.
13:01:00JdGordonthats gonna be a nightmare to keep threads the in right place..
13:01:09Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: I had been thinking of both a "Plugin Development" and "WPS Design" forum actually.
13:01:21markunPaul_The_Nerd: Nothing in particular, but I've noticed a lot of generic rockbox questions in target specific forums in the past.
13:01:48Paul_The_Nerdmarkun: Yup. I'll be watching for that from now on. I'm going to _try_ to get/keep things a bit more organized.
13:02:17markunPaul_The_Nerd: thanks! I apreciate your work in the forums

13:05:42B4gderthe first message sets the subject for the thread
13:05:50Paul_The_NerdHydrogenaudio's forums are a much more focused and serious community though. Ideally the Rockbox forums should be a place where someone completely clueless and panicking can go for help
13:06:36Paul_The_NerdThat's pretty much the idea of the "Rockbox Experts" group. People who've shown a willingness to answer even the stupidest questions with understanding and patience, as well as giving people advice on how to find more information in the wiki.

13:13:21Paul_The_NerdOkay, she's been added
13:13:56linuxstbSo am I alone in thinking the ipod forums should be unsplit? i.e. that one forum is enough?
13:14:09JdGordonim with u..
13:14:19midkayi'm inbetween...
13:14:31Paul_The_NerdI'm not sure I see the benefit in unifying them, honestly
13:14:34peturOT message for EU people only: please sign
13:14:36XavierGrI agree with linuxstb, too many subforums for my taste.
13:14:45midkayi think they aren't harming anything..
13:14:47markunpetur: I also signed it today
13:15:27midkaymaybe not a complete unification?
13:15:47midkayiPod General, iPod 5G/Photo/Color/Nano, iPod 1G-4G Gray/Mini?
13:15:54Paul_The_NerdIt feels easier to provide support this way, to me, but as I said, I'm willing to listen to arguments both ways.
13:16:03XavierGrmidkay: yes that sounds more like it
13:16:18XavierGrgrayscale and colour target
13:16:21midkayi like them the way they are, but..
13:16:37midkayif people are hell-bent on a unification, maybe three more general ones is alright..
13:17:16midkaythat also is kind of the old/new splitup.. the 5g/color/nano models are the most recent, and the 1g-4g and the mini are old/discontinued..
13:17:30midkay(technically, the photo/color is too, but..)
13:17:43midkayif there's a unification, my vote goes for that.
13:17:49midkay*back to guildwars* :)
13:18:44Paul_The_NerdRight now the iPods I believe are divided by WPS constraints (and I believe plugin availability, sorta)
13:19:23linuxstbIt's just that when I read the posts in the ipod forums, almost none of them are specific to one type of ipod.
13:19:59midkaythe problem isn't that, i think.
13:20:03midkayit's not that they aren't specific to one iPod..
13:20:09midkayit's that they aren't specific to basically *any* model.
13:20:24midkay"how do i bookmark?" −− it's the same on every model.
13:20:36 Quit juxtap ()
13:20:37midkaypeople just think "well, i have this model, and here's the forum for it, i'll ask here".
13:20:48linuxstbExactly. But people who own (for example) a Nano, will see the Nano forum and go directly there.
13:21:12midkayso that's rather unavoidable.
13:21:36midkaybut for the not-quite-rare case where the problem is ipod- or even model-specific, these help..
13:22:02Paul_The_NerdI mean we have several model specific outstanding iPod bugs right now
13:22:36linuxstbBut "several bugs" isn't a reason to create 5 new forums IMO.
13:23:09linuxstbAnd hopefully they should be fixed soon anyway - once people go back to working on the ipods.
13:24:02JdGordonwhat about... dont allow regular users to make new topics in the player specific forums.. then add a bug discussion forum, and IF there is a bug that is purley 1 target move it there..?
13:24:21Paul_The_NerdSeems a little complicated.
13:24:43Paul_The_NerdIt just seemed with the explosive number of posts in the iPod forum, a single forum was too little. Especially with all the custom build, and WPS related threads.
13:24:47dproamiconn: are you still around ?
13:24:52midkaybottom line for me: they aren't hurting anything (afaik), they aren't really taking up space, this helps in not-all-but-some cases, and Paul_The_Nerd does probably 90% of the assistance in these forums and probably knows best.. if a unification is in order, i think color/grayscale models is the best alternative.
13:26:45JdGordonbottom line is there is too many targets.. i rekon drop all ipod support and stay with the smaller ones :D
13:26:54Paul_The_NerdI do agree that it is a step away from having people think of Rockbox as hardware-independent, and that is a bad thing.
13:27:28midkaythat's true..
13:27:49 Join Febs [0] (
13:28:14JdGordonso do linuxstb's suggestion.. subroums for the parts of rockbox.. not the targets..
13:28:15linuxstbBut I think we all agree that most posts in the old ipod forum didn't belong there anyway - they should have been in general discussion.
13:28:16Paul_The_NerdBut then, the differences between an iPod Mini 1G and a iPod Video are larger than an H100 and an H300.
13:28:16midkayi think general, color models, and gray models..
13:29:34midkayif it was made clear in their description that the questions should only pertain to those models..
13:30:09JdGordonbut most users wouldnt know if it is or isnt only effecting their model..
13:30:12linuxstbmidkay: I wouln't even do that - unless you are a developer, or designing a WPS, the type of LCD isn't important.
13:30:47Paul_The_NerdI think really, the general idea is that perhaps the whole boards system needs a bit of a refactor for categories.
13:30:47*midkay shrugs
13:31:00midkayone iPod forum sounds just a tad too general..
13:31:30Paul_The_NerdThe iPod forum also already has more posts/topics than any other forum but the H100 one, which is significantly older
13:31:44midkaythat actually sounds like a good idea..
13:31:59midkaysomeone mentioned it earlier but i didn't really think about it..
13:32:12midkaya category for rockbox-specific functions.
13:32:18Paul_The_NerdI mean, I like the idea of divisions being by topic, rather than by hardware.

13:34:35FebsKeep in mind that most people first coming to Rockbox don't know whether their directly relates to the model.
13:34:42midkayso, tell them.
13:34:45Paul_The_NerdPlus, if there are NO forums for different hardware, then people would know that we have no way of knowing what hardware they're asking ab out
13:34:46midkaystickies in each model specific forum..
13:35:01midkay"Unless you're sure that your question pertains to this model, please ask in the appropriate rockbox functionality forum."
13:35:05linuxstbPaul_The_Nerd: Sounds good to me :)
13:35:20Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: I think even if it pertains to a single model, they could ask in the general Bugs or Support forums.
13:35:30Paul_The_NerdThe only problem there is this:
13:35:31midkayyeah, unless it's pretty damn specific..
13:35:37midkaye.g. hardware mods.
13:35:48Paul_The_NerdA lot of answers come from people who don't have _any_ Rockbox knowledge outside of one set of hardware
13:35:49midkayunless you're *sure* your question is specific to this model or group of models..
13:36:21midkayit's quite a dilemma, but i think the general categories would be alright for that..
13:36:25Paul_The_NerdSo, Joe_Average may not even bother reading Support questions if he has to filter through them until he finds one on a model he feels confident about the button mappings for
13:36:39Paul_The_NerdWhereas now, Joe_Average can read just the H300 section if he only knows the keymappings for it, and help people there
13:36:59tempiHeya, i just converted my 5G MacPod into a Winpod and tried installing Rockbox. Found a few problems with the docs in the wiki... Does someone feel responsible and wants to fix the wiki page or shall i do it?

13:57:33Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: Oh, by the way, did you see that the 4G froze in setting the cpu speed? Data abort even.
13:57:40linuxstbtempi: Reading the Loader2 page, I can't see where it tells you how to install on a FAT32 ipod from Mac OS X. But I've no objections to pointing users in the direction of your bootloader (and wiki, and support forums...) as an alternative to Rockbox's.
13:58:24linuxstbPaul_The_Nerd: Yes, I saw that. It's interesting, but a data abort is different to a freeze - I would have expected more people to have reported data aborts, but all the reports just say that its a freeze.
13:58:26Zendeferamarkun, he already runs espeak on a arm based system, ris c os or something.
13:58:32Zendeferaso that might help with the ipod.
13:58:56markunZendefera: a port to C would be even more helpful I think
13:59:12ZendeferaI am thinking of taking that on, when I get a chance.
13:59:19Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: Yeah... I don't know. People are really vague. Some people say "freezes" when they're talking about skips in playback too. So I'm somewhat uncertain overall these days, but at least that means _something_ bad _can_ happen there.
13:59:20linuxstbPaul_The_Nerd: My ipod's never frozen on the splash screen, but I do experience freezes during audio playback on my 4g Color. So at least I can try and isolate that when I go back to ipod debugging.
13:59:29Zendeferathe developer of espeak told me also it doesn't rely on the portaudio lib
13:59:41FebsSan, in that case, you could start with the preset you like best and tweak it. But you're better off starting with the EQ flat and then using the method I described on MR to adjust it.
13:59:54markunZendefera: are you blind?
14:00:07amiconnmarkun: That does indeed sound quite good (although I couldn't listen to the flite comparison. WMP doesn't like the .wav for some reason)

14:09:54midkayamiconn, but autosaving a config when the settings are reset is trivial, so why isn't that done as a temporary workaround? clearly nobody's bothering with the binary stuff..
14:11:03amiconnIt's not trivial
14:11:06JdGordonmidkay: u mean save it when the new one loads?
14:11:12midkayJdGordon, er..
14:11:21midkayi mean just saving a config when settings are reset.
14:11:23midkaynot loading.
14:11:28amiconnYou can't save the old settings with the version causing the reset
14:11:29midkayhow hard is that? one line of code?
14:11:32linuxstbYou can't save it - the point is Rockbox doesn't know the format...
14:11:42 Join c0utta [0] (
14:12:06amiconnThe reason for the reset is that the binary settings format changed - so rockbox doesn't know how to interpret it correctly
14:12:07JdGordonhas there been any talk about a new way of storing the settings?
14:12:22amiconnYes, as .cfg files
14:12:44amiconnThe problem is that we need an efficient way to register for disk spinup events
14:13:08JdGordonfor when to update it..?
14:13:33amiconnFor saving settings when they changed
14:13:39JdGordonah gotcha
14:13:57amiconnCausing a spinup just for saving settings is out of question
14:14:14amiconnToday this is handled within the ata driver ("delayed sector")
14:15:39peturmaybe have a binary and cfg version. always write both but at boot read only the binary (for speed) unless config block changed: read cfg and upgrade binary.
14:17:07Paul_The_NerdWhy does the config file have to be written that often?
14:17:24JdGordonye... they dont really need to be written untill shutdown..
14:17:43Paul_The_NerdWe have an automatic shutdown when the battery is low, manual shutdown when someone turns it off, and "USB mode" as the three time the config file should save, right?
14:17:58JdGordonnot even usb mode...
14:18:17peturno auto shutdown on low batt and certainly not on 'freeze'
14:18:30amiconnJdGordon: Settings should be written at the next spinup, not only on shutdown
14:19:14JdGordonmeh, they arnt that importnat.. and if u want to save your batts more than settings then for sure not till shutdown
14:19:15amiconnpetur: The binary settings should go away, except for some special values. Even those special values shouldn't be saved in a magic sector, but in a file
14:20:27amiconnJdGordon, Paul_The_Nerd: Saving on shutdown may be way too late, for several reasons: (1) Low batt may prevent disk access. (2) Older archoses have a fairly quick hardware shutdown that's impossible to catch in time
14:20:41JdGordonah k
14:20:45peturstill, reading a fixed format binary *file* is faster than parsing a text file, no?
14:20:46amiconnAnd I rather don't want an artificial 'low batt' shutdown

14:28:24tempisince i am updating the install instructions for Macs, i need a confirmation: is it true that it's OK to just copy the new set of files from a onto the player's disk, or should the old ".rockbox" folder be deleted first to clear old stuff out first?
14:28:42preglowtempi: preferably, but i never do it

14:29:10tempimeaing, you usually do not remove items from the .rockbox folder that would cause trouble for rb if not removed from old installs?

14:35:51tempilinuxstb, "Reading the Loader2 page, I can't see where it tells you how to install on a FAT32 ipod from Mac OS X." −− oh, right you are.
14:36:16tempii made myself some scripts that do this automatically, no matter if it's a macpod or winpod, so i never noticed :)
14:37:04linuxstbtempi: I agree with you that the instructions are a little daunting. But IMO, we should fix that by removing all the "corner cases" to other pages - e.g. make the conversion from HFS to FAT32 its own page
14:39:38tempibtw, have you seen my "rohPod" tool yet, linuxstb ?
14:39:47linuxstbNo - what does it do?
14:39:50tempilatest version actually works on mac, windows and linux!
14:40:03tempiit's a GUI tool to view and edit disk sectors.
14:40:09tempithere are others that can do it, but...
14:40:12linuxstbAh, GUI tools....
14:40:29tempimine can do it remotely! i.e. you can connect to someone else's disk over the network and fix it :)
14:40:32tempior desstroy it
14:40:46tempibut: it also keeps a journal of all changes, so one can ALWAYS revert all changes.
14:40:53tempiso, if someone messes it up, no worries
14:40:57linuxstbWhat do you use it for?
14:41:06tempinext i want to add a feature to install bootloaders from it

14:46:26Paul_The_NerdI think the main thing I don't like about the player is that it lists WMP10 as a "requirement" so until Rockbox is available for it, I think I'd never use it.
14:47:39Paul_The_NerdI do like that it advertises a user-replaceable battery. You don't see that as much anymore, it feels like.

14:49:57linuxstb(the firmware partition on a FAT32 ipod...)
14:49:59tempiright, but you can simply use the proper offset from the main disk
14:50:09tempithat's what i do in my scripts
14:50:23linuxstbHow do you know the proper offset though?
14:50:34tempithe offset is always dblk 63
14:50:54tempiif not, the tool will notice
14:50:59tempii am verifying that now
14:51:02linuxstbIt wasn't on my ipod when I first bought it... But it was after I restored it.

14:51:39tempiwell, all the MBRs listed below on the rockbox osx page also refer to blk 63 :)
14:52:13linuxstbThey do indeed. But that's what my "diskdump" utility does - it reads the partition table, and then writes to the partition via the "whole disk" device.
14:52:15tempiplus, if someone converts his ipod NOW from mac to win, he'll surely get the new layout as well even if he had an old ipod with a differnet layout
14:52:57tempisee, the instructions on the wiki contain a few steps. if the blk offset should have changed, it'll become apparent in these steps quickly

14:55:20wibbixin "main", when I try to access the bitmap, the pointer is to garbage (not the bitmap)
14:55:26linuxstbI'm not sure about that - the Rockbox build system takes care of the nasty details.
14:55:38wibbixwhere, in the build, would I look?
14:56:33wibbixjust trying to narrow it down, mind you. top level makefile?
14:58:17linuxstbBagder's our build system guru - but he seems away at the moment. But yes, apps/Makefile is probably the place to start - or bootloader/Makefile
14:58:36B4gderwhat exactly are you doing?

14:58:59wibbixthe binary is loaded at 0x30000000

16:10:09whatboutbobwanted to compare the h1xx remote tick between rockbox and iriver f/w...
16:10:35whatboutbob...can't hear a tick at all in iriver f/w. :-(

16:11:37preglowwell, it's a nice hint
16:12:25whatboutbobust curious...does anyone know if that h1xx remote tick effects h3x0?
16:14:39XavierGrsome h100 remotes tick on some h300 units
16:15:01XavierGrthough with amiconn's fix that is quite rare
16:15:18whatboutbob'reduce ticking'?
16:15:24XavierGrand with reduce ticking almost obsolete
16:15:34XavierGrno that's different
16:15:56XavierGramiconn's fix is always on
16:16:06XavierGrit is an optimization for h300s
16:16:23amiconnThere are 2 reasons why a remote might tick on a H300
16:16:47amiconnOne of the reasons is completely fixable with no performance penalty
16:16:55amiconnThis fix is always enabled
16:17:24amiconnThe other reason is the same as on H1x0, only that it occurs on a very small number of H300s
16:17:36amiconnThis needs the ticking reduction fix like on H1x0
16:18:38whatboutbobamiconn: any chance you could explain the cause of it in simple terms without me wasting too much of your time?
16:19:54whatboutbobreason i'm asking is i've now had 4 remotes and 4 h1x0's and i'm yet to strike upon a combo that's tick-free w/ rockbox.
16:20:31XavierGrwhatboutbob: is it tick free with iriver?
16:21:11whatboutbobXavierGr: all but one remote...yeah...
16:21:21whatboutbobat least to my ears.
16:21:40XavierGrI have 4 h100 remotes 2 H100 and 1 H300 and all tick, except a specific 1 with H300 (without amiconns fix)
16:22:09XavierGrafter amiconn commited his fix H300 will not tick anymoer regardless the remote.
16:22:19XavierGrH100 still needs the reduce ticking set to on.

16:23:56Hansmaulwurfand they are also in very high price class ;)
16:24:09amiconnIt's impossible to eliminate the H1x0 type of ticking
16:24:50Hansmaulwurfwhatboutbob: you hear the ticking when a song is playing?
16:24:56XavierGrwell I think that the ticking issue for irivers completed. Rockbox managed to get it as low as it could, the rest is iriver hardware dumbness.
16:25:10whatboutbobamiconn: i *swear* i don't mean this to come off as whiny as it sounds...I'm just curious...but how come i can't notice it with the iriver f/w?
16:25:32whatboutbobhansmaulwurf: through quieter stuff...yeah...
16:25:42Hansmaulwurfi can hear it with iriver f/w

16:26:00amiconnI don't know exactly. The ticking reduction is a tradeoff. The more we want to reduce ticking, the slower the remote lcd updates will become
16:26:11XavierGrI ony test without music, because while playing I surely won't hear it
16:26:18Hansmaulwurfme too
16:26:57whatboutbobadmittedly its far more noticeable during breaks between music (mid song and between songs)...

18:15:47FebsBut I've seen plenty of "news" articles that were simply verbatim reprints of a company's press release.
18:15:54preglowwhatboutbob: always knew i'd have a hand in that
18:16:09tucozAs I follow the development of rockbox closely, I do not care about releases. But, for a lot of other programs I do not follow their development and tend to use whatever is availalble from the ubuntu repos. This might be the case for some people out there.

18:18:03Febstucoz, some do, some don't−−it's pretty much the same on the RB forums. Many people don't release that the *release* isn't going to give them anything new.
18:18:25FebsAnd that it's the lifting of the feature freeze that they should be excited about (if they're looking for new features).

18:19:12whatboutbobI can def understand the security that people get out of a 'release' though. They assume that it is a stable 'snapshot'.
18:20:18whatboutbobthere's a lot of fringe users out there that do just want something stable and aren't neccessarily after the latest and greatest...they're just looking for the 6 monthly upgrade that they know will be relatively bug-free.
18:20:20tucozFebs, JDGordons ideas on key-def's were something along the lines with your ideas. Maybe we could adopt that to the manual.

21:06:14lukaswayne9Hello! I'm using an ipod video g5. I'd like to keep the original firmware as my default boot option, how can I do that? I see an image for the ipod color, but not for the video. Can someone help me out here?
21:08:35markunshrimants: noone has figured out how the chip works that does the video decoding
21:10:12markunat least for the ipod video. Someone might write a video player that uses the CPU to decode the video.
21:10:17preglowif you want retailos to boot by default, you need to modify the bootloader yourself
21:10:26dprolukaswayne9: IIRC there's a patched bootloader somewhere
21:10:42dprolukaswayne9: that will boot OF as the default
21:10:51lukaswayne9dpro: I saw one, but it was for the ipod color, which I do not own :-\
21:10:56shrimantsbut is it possible to use, say, ipod linux's bootloader to load either rockbox or the apple OS?
21:10:57markunshrimants: if you are interested, look at the video section of the patch tracker
21:11:02dproah ic sorry but that made no sense to me

21:11:44Galoisthe bootloader is one file. color and video are the same.
21:12:08lukaswayne9Galois: I'll give that a shot
21:12:22shrimantsso i CAN have video, but i would have to use the bootloader or something else to pick the fw that can do it

21:44:55peturmany audiophiles use the h1x0 for concert taping and good audio playback
21:44:59BockBilboi usually use the analog input
21:45:07peturme too
21:45:13BockBilbomm interesting
21:45:16peturbut some have higher standards ;)

21:46:00linuxstbdpro: The mini2g doesn't support recording afaik, and IPL haven't implemented it for the 5g (again, afaik).
21:46:28BockBilboim trying to find the iCatcher theme for my player.. but cant find it, are you sure that such version exists?
21:46:59tom__bah, rockbox reared its head
21:47:06tom__I changed some tag cache thing and it won't boot now :\
21:47:42peturBockBilbo: check the patch tracker
21:47:58linuxstbdpro: I was planning on working on ipod recording after 3.0, but I'ld be very happy if you beat me to it.

21:51:49BockBilbois it possible to configure the recording format?
21:51:53peturfeel free to post you version there too (give credit where needed)
21:52:22peturrecording is only 44.4/16 only atm
21:52:39BockBilbobut, i mean... mp3, wav
21:52:52BockBilboand the different mp3 bitrate
21:52:53peturwav only, encoding is coming
21:53:25peturmp3 encoding on a portable device may never get the quality a pc can give (cpu power)
21:53:32BockBilboi though it also encoded, as the iriver default firmware
21:53:34BockBilboi see
21:53:52BockBilbowell i dont care alot about encoding, i dont usually record stuff
21:53:56petuririver mp3 encoding sucks, even at 320kbps
21:54:44BockBilboive got a silly question.. is rockbox better than ipod linux?
21:55:00peturdepends what you want
21:55:11BockBilboi see
21:55:18BockBilbooi havent get much into ipod linux
21:55:34BockBilbobut i guess it's benefit is that it uses a linux kernel, right?
21:55:49linuxstbWe don't see that as a benefit.
21:56:06*petur wonders why they need to stuff thet linux kernel everywhere
21:57:13BockBilbopetur, it was just a guess

22:00:27*davidc___ is from ipodlinux ;)
22:00:58davidc___eh, both projects are really for different things.. rockbox is better as a general purpose MP3 player replacement
22:01:02*petur is not so fanatic when it comes to OS and technology
22:01:19davidc___ipodlinux is better when it comes to moving larger software across / apps / etc
22:02:33davidc___because its more like a mainstream OS than rockbox
22:03:04davidc___hwoever, rockbox is faster because its closer to the HW than ipl

22:03:38BockBilbothanks :)

22:15:18BockBilbomm that's basicly aproblem with the rotator theme
22:15:36BockBilbodoes that patch needs to recompile the whole rockbox?
22:16:02BockBilbo.. i might do it in 3 weeks
22:16:09BockBilbolol.. i was supposed to be studing right now
22:16:12peturwhat's a partial recompile btw?

22:29:00Noah0504The Rockbox logo. I installed the latest build...
22:29:11Noah0504The logo that you see when it loads.
22:29:17markunNoah0504: what does it look like now?
22:29:17BockBilbobut Mikachu is there any way to avoid questions?
22:29:23midkayNoah0504, it hasn't been changed in.. like.. 4-5 months, i think.
22:29:34MikachuBockBilbo: ?
22:29:50midkayBockBilbo, how old was your build?! :)
22:29:53Noah0504It shows a woman holding a audio player and it has Rockbox across it.
22:29:58BockBilboits new
22:30:29midkayhow old was the one you upgraded from? i committed a 5G-sized logo on february 18th. :)
22:31:00BockBilbothe one i had before is from yesterday's nightly build
22:31:13midkaywhat's different?
22:31:26tucozNoah0504, is that an experiental build perhaps?
22:32:01BockBilbomidkay, on what? im just trying to make my own build so i can add some features such as the audioscrobbler or the margin thing
22:32:10Noah0504I don't know...maybe it was something else I added that changed it...
22:32:10midkaymy bad, i'm.. mixing people up. :)
22:32:17BockBilbothats what i though
22:32:23Noah0504Check it out for yourself, haha, see if I'm wrong.

22:33:29Noah0504midkay, Nothing that I can really tell...I haven't really messed around with it though.
22:34:03midkayso the logo is different, but you can't really tell what's changed about it? or are you referring to the featureset/functionality of the daily build?

22:37:28BockBilbois there any page with different equalizer preset files?
22:38:16Noah0504...or, does anyone have a nice preset that covers pretty much all music. I've been looking for one of those.
22:38:17markunBockBilbo: like 'rock' and 'jazz'?
22:38:42markunNoah0504: depends on your headphones..
22:39:24markunBockBilbo: Don't know why you think those are needed, but if you create them there are a few people in the forum (not me) that would be happy
22:39:40Noah0504markun, Well, when I use my default iPod headphones, I just turn it off...but I have a nice set of home-theater headphones.
22:40:19BockBilbomarkun i was just asking for them because i think that sometimes they are useful, and so i dont need to create them myself
22:42:06Noah0504Does anyone know if Rockbox will ever handle pictures better and even support video?
22:42:21markunThe only useful eq preset I can think of is the one for 'negerpunk' :)
22:42:57Noah0504Actually, I know why it chokes when handeling my pictures...iTunes creates smaller files...mine are still fullsize.
22:43:05Noah0504Eh, I should have realized that earlier.

22:45:36markunWe are working on rockbox for the F and X series:
22:46:56Noah0504So, does each port have it's own features, or are they pretty much the same across each player?
