00:04:09preglowlong time since i've seen that fella
00:04:48aghasteruh? i dont think it voids the warranty
00:04:58aghasterdoes it?
00:05:02idiot^does it improve battery life on video?
00:05:11aghasterimprove battery life? never
00:05:27aghasteron my 4th gen i got for about 4h of battery life
00:05:50aghasterrunning rockbox
00:05:54dj-futhat's due to an incomplete power system though, for rb
00:06:00Bagderreading the ipod warranty, it certainly says you can't install any other software
00:06:23Bagderthe license warranty thing
00:06:30dj-fuiirc, someone was in contact with Ipod Canada and according to the helpdesk installing rockbox doesn't void any warranty
00:06:33aghasteryou've read it? lol
00:06:39Bagderyes I've read it
00:06:51Bagderand no, I don't have an ipod ;-)
00:07:02aghasterI once called Apple asking them if they had any SDK to program stuff for their firmware... lol
00:07:06aghasterdidn't work XD
00:07:29preglowwhat gives
00:07:40aghasterthe guy who answered me simply gave me the link with details about the hardware, to create ipod accessories
00:07:44idiot^anyone here have an ipod video
00:07:51aghasterand told me there was no SDK

00:11:07aghasterWell, Mac OS X's kernel, Darwin, is open source. So Apple is a bit opened to the idea of open source
00:11:11aghastereven if its not complete
00:11:31aghasterreleasing the core of their firmware would be really appreciated, but i guess nobody requested it yet
00:11:48BagderI doubt they can

00:51:32peturrecording a sine
00:51:39peturcheck for glitches
00:51:49preglowand you've made a sine that isn't good enough? :PPP
00:52:45peturfor line-in, is the monitoring still via the uda mixer or via the coldfire?
00:52:59amiconnvia coldfire
00:53:07peturok, I say no more
00:53:17peturmust first loopback the pc then :(
00:53:32stripwaxDang, how do I get a screenshot from the sim again?
00:54:11peturamiconn: I recorded the output of the h340 back on pc thinking I'd get a copy of the pc output
00:54:53amiconnNo you won't
00:54:54peturthe recording of the monitoring is even wordse: it contains phase shifts
00:55:04peturworse even
00:55:18stripwaxnemmind, got it, just realised I've made about three trillion screenshots..
00:55:37amiconnUh, phase shifts?
00:56:03peturand I'm testing on a cvs build :(
00:56:25amiconnThere might be glitches in the monitoring when recording from spdif in, but I wouldn't expect phase shifts/glitches when recording from analog

01:31:58HoangThen it'll charge?
01:32:39aghasterjust let it plugged in.

03:03:14idiot^how much faster
03:03:24Mikachu5 billion fantasillion times!
03:03:33idiot^im bored of appleOS
03:03:41midkaynot that it won't get better, but considering the ipods are completely 'unsupported' and absolutely not optimized at all..
03:03:51midkayso try it and find out if it lasts long enough.
03:03:51Mikachunot much faster
03:04:00Mikachumaybe 10-40%
03:04:06sharpeyou'll probably get about 4 to five hours of rockbox use...
03:04:28idiot^i can squeeze out like 1 hour and 20 mins of video usage on AppleOS
03:04:47midkayFYI, rockbox doesn't have any video support..
03:05:04Mikachui think the difference is bigger on hd players than on flash
03:05:19idiot^hows rockbox run
03:06:02midkaythat makes no sense at all.. it runs *off* a partition, much like every file on your disk..
03:06:21Mikachuyou don't need any more partitions, it runs from the main fat partition
03:06:40idiot^i c.
03:06:48idiot^is it easy to uninstall?
03:07:40idiot^so rockbox is basically used for music
03:07:45idiot^is there any screenshots out there?
03:07:59midkaynot much to see, but check the manual.
03:08:37idiot^when you install rockbox you don't lose all your files on your ipod right?
03:08:39ashridahat the moment. there's been work on getting video codecs running, but the problem is, that's more for the iriver H3xx series, since to do video on the ipod video will require specs for a chip that is completely undocumented
03:09:26ashridahif it came to the point where you had to do a restore, apparently you would, but installing rockbox doesn't delete your music/files no
03:09:56idiot^asridah, thanks.
03:10:35ashridahbut that would be if it actually broke and was unbootable. and we remind you that rockbox on the ipod isn't supported yet :)
03:11:18idiot^when installing rockbox it gives you a boot menu

04:45:13thePianoManjust an idea guys, has anyone given any thought to using doxygen for the rockbox source?
04:45:22CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
04:45:22*thePianoMan puts on flameproof suit
04:46:29whatboutbobamiconn: just a quick heads-up for recording tests, if you haven't considered it... i've found the easiest way to spot glitches is to filter out the sine frequency you recorded, so then all you're left with is the glitches.
04:48:52Paul_The_NerdthePianoMan: Do you want to go through making the necessary setup?
04:49:03 Quit ScoTTie ()
04:50:34thePianoMando you mean configuring doxygen or actually documenting the source files?
04:52:08thePianoMani would be happy to play around with doxygen's config but actual documentation could be done in bits and pieces
04:53:04thePianoManI'm totally new at all this open source stuff though so I have no idea if it would be useful or help in any way.
04:54:27Paul_The_NerdI think Doxygen has been suggested before, though I don't recall if there were objections or not. I *think* that the general consensus was that the real issue was getting the code itself documented properly.

04:54:34sharpeg'night everyone.
04:56:13 Quit rotator (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
04:57:10thePianoManPaul_The_Nerd: I understand - I guess that for the person who wrote the code, commenting could be (in their mind) a waste of time
04:57:11daurn|laptopPaul_The_Nerd: you nerd
04:57:17daurn|laptopyour always on here
04:58:14thePianoManThough I think that the Rockbox project would be more likely to attract new developers if there was better documentation
04:58:47Paul_The_NerdthePianoMan: Well, a lot of people don't have much time to work on Rockbox anyway. Many of them spend all that time just coding, and don't even have any to document. In an ideal world, there would be time, but in the choice between "getting it working" and "documenting what I've got", well, guess which gets picked. Especially since everyone here is unpaid volunteer programming. :)
04:59:05Mikachui think the only hard part is the lcd stuff, and someone wrote docs for that in the wiki
04:59:11Paul_The_NerdFortunately, *I* am not yet to blame for any of this.
04:59:21daurn|laptopif code is commented, you don't get people saying "rockbox is to hard to port" - and you get more ports
04:59:41Paul_The_NerdBut only because I haven't yet written anything, of my own outside of like... adapting some button mappings for plugins and little bits like that.
04:59:43JdGordonits still hard to port..
04:59:55Paul_The_NerdThe hard part isn't existing code, in most cases.
05:00:59thePianoManI understand why people don't comment code. I would be happy to try and write code patches for parts of the code. But if someone is going to write documentation for existing code it would make sense (in my mind) to have a consistent documentation system.
05:01:02daurn|laptopJdGordon: but if commented, people try
05:01:09JdGordoni would think the hardest part with portinig to a new target is getting the drivers written which is diff for all targets, so commenintg that wont make it any easier..
05:01:33 Join Rob2222_ [0] (
05:01:42*JdGordon ouwld be all for commenting the code.. but its boring and u actually need to understand it to be able to do it..
05:01:48JdGordonwhich is why its not happenng..
05:01:59Paul_The_NerdthePianoMan: I agree that a consistent documentation would be nice. I'd recommend asking LinusN and Bagder at least how they feel about doxygen
05:02:09daurn|laptopi'd even have a try
05:02:26ashridahI'd be inclinde to agree. even if people propose ports, often they don't know anywhere near enough about the platform's hardware or the required assembly language for it to be able to make decent progress.
05:02:28thePianoManI just googled the IRC logs for doxygen and saw that it had been mentioned
05:02:48JdGordondoxygen would be good... but a PITA to setup.. but once its there it would be INVALUABLE...
05:03:01 Quit lukaswayne9 ("Ex-Chat")
05:03:17ashridahbut that said, more documentation the better. particularly for people doing plugin development, etc.
05:03:32thePianoManmaybe there are other documentation engines that are easier to set up... might do some more research
05:03:54JdGordonseen as comments doesnt really effect the code i doubt the core devs would mind seeing patches and commiting them during the freeze...
05:04:02ashridahI'd be inclined to setup something similar to LXR too
05:04:36*JdGordon has lots of shit to do and 3 hours to do it in... cya later

05:32:17ashridahPaul_The_Nerd: even then, it'd probably require disassembly

05:51:54Paul_The_NerdIf there were a set process for it, it'd probably already be done.
05:53:02daurn|laptopi/we have an exploit
05:53:16daurn|laptopis a bootloader a nessecity
05:54:14Paul_The_NerdPretty much. I mean, ideally when the device is turned on, Rockbox should load with a release-ready version.
05:54:26Paul_The_NerdIt's not necessary to work on the port, but it should be necessary before it's ready to release
05:54:55daurn|laptopi *would* like to work with the exploit

05:58:58daurn|laptopbut, i would like rockbox

05:59:31Paul_The_NerdWell, it sounds like you've got the necessary information to create display and button drivers for Rockbox.
05:59:39Paul_The_NerdWell, every port starts with one person
06:01:24daurn|laptopnow, what do i do
06:04:07Paul_The_NerdStart looking and the hardware-specific bits of Rockbox, and create equivalents for whatever hardware it is you're working on.

08:29:44moda|ASOTbut i can rma it, even tho its outa warranty, HOWEVER, it has rockbox on it.....
08:29:52midkaysounds like it possibly got formatted somehow.
08:30:01midkayerror -1 iirc is 'rockbox not found'. e.g. not on disk..

09:10:02Hoangthis happened before and i had to reformat and restore my ipod
09:10:04nudelynIt takes a good minute or two for my iPod to finally appear as a disk after it reboots into USB/disk mode.

09:13:28HoangThe weird thing is that the ipod just randomly starts being weird. When i first put rockbox on i could successfully copy music over.
09:13:30amiconnAfaik itunes has some setting that may prevent accessing the ipod in disk mode
09:13:39Hoangoh no, it was working fine
09:13:56amiconnNote that I'm not sure, I never used itunes
09:14:00Hoanggrr i gues i gotta boot up the mac and use it to restore ipod.

09:18:13amiconnIt seems that the spdif input glitches *every time* the cpu frequency changes
09:18:21amiconnAnalog in does not, however.
09:18:46amiconnI tried an analog recording 2 few minutes ago, 2 full buffer flush periods
09:19:16amiconnThe only thing I can see is a slight noise influence when the hd goes on/off
09:19:36amiconnMaybe that's what causes your agc code to change gain...
09:19:52preglowspdif glitches?
09:19:54preglowhow nice!
09:19:57preglowin what way does it glitch?
09:20:07amiconnspdif glitches when boosting/unboosting while recording">
09:21:08amiconnSeems like a couple of samples are simply missing... probably more than one period
09:21:12preglowouch! dropped samples
09:21:19preglowand lots of them
09:21:31amiconnNo such thing with analog in, for some unknown reason
09:21:46moda|ASOTwell this is just lame
09:21:54 Join Kohlrabi [0] (
09:22:17preglowamiconn: ok, so we should both prevent boosting AND using heavy encoding codecs with spdif, then :///
09:22:35preglowbecause it glitches if you do?
09:22:42preglowcould of course force boost
09:22:46amiconnWwe can still use heavy encoders
09:23:05amiconnWe can boost/unboost during analog recording, and stay unboosted during spdif monitoring, but always boost during spdif recording
09:23:06preglownot if we keep cpu at 45mhz
09:23:15preglowthat would work
09:23:22preglowi wonder how much cpu will be affected
09:23:26preglowbatterly life
09:23:41amiconnI think we even want to rather than record unboosted all the time
09:23:49amiconnBuffer flush takes agens when unboosted
09:24:22preglowi guess battery life when recording isn't that important either
09:24:23Mikachuwhat about adding a freq level in between?
09:24:38amiconncvs recording does just that (record at a constant 124MHz)

09:36:05Paul_The_Nerdmoda|ASOT: If you notice it says the error means that the HD is inaccessible, not that it doesn't spin. It only says that it is _probably_ because it doesn't spin.
09:36:34Paul_The_NerdYou may want to open it up, and double check that the drive is properly seated.
09:36:40moda|ASOTso how do i fix it then? ive reseated the hdd like 20 times
09:37:06Paul_The_NerdWhy have you reseated it so many times?
09:37:24moda|ASOTit was an exageration, like, maybe 5 times,
09:37:31Paul_The_NerdEven then.
09:37:55moda|ASOTso what am i supposed to do now?
09:38:20Paul_The_NerdI'm still curious why you've had to reseat it multiple times
09:38:37moda|ASOTto try and get it to work? jeez
09:39:16Paul_The_NerdWait, so by "5 times" you mean you've just opened it since the error started happening and removed and reseated the drive 5 times?

09:40:38Paul_The_NerdI take it you open your player often then?
09:40:48modanope, first time
09:41:24Paul_The_NerdJust found it odd, most people wouldn't pull their drive in and out five times when they didn't even know what the problem is.
09:41:26Paul_The_NerdOr at least I wouldn't.
09:41:40modaPaul_The_Nerd: its a differant problem to what it was initially
09:42:06Paul_The_NerdSo, you were getting one problem, you reseated the drive several times, and now you've got a different one?
09:42:33 Quit petur ("CGI:IRC (Ping timeout)")
09:42:37modaat first it was detecting the hdd at all, the rockbox firmware would start then die, the hdd was spinning up and then dieing, opened it, reseated it, and now ive got this problem
09:42:50 Join stripwax [0] (
09:43:03Paul_The_NerdThe rockbox bootloader would start, or the actual firmware?
09:43:10Paul_The_NerdAs in, did you ever get to the Rockbox logo?
09:43:31modaas in, it couldnt find the rockbox directory, and gave the the error result = -1
09:43:31Paul_The_NerdSo did you get an error message?
09:44:01Paul_The_NerdI guess your best bet is to get an enclosure for the disk and see what you can recover off it.
09:44:23modai already have a backup of it, my main concern is flashing it to the iriver firmware to rma it
09:44:29modaor atleast get it working again
09:45:49Paul_The_NerdSo, get ahold of a cheap 1.8" drive from somewhere, or borrow one from someone who trusts you.

09:46:59 Join petur [0] (
09:47:06Paul_The_NerdThen find another way to do it. If you don't want to take the 320 apart, it's completely irrelevant to the whole situation. You don't need to get a 20 gig one. Find a much smaller capacity used one somewhere.
09:47:18Paul_The_NerdOr get a larger capacity one, and when you get your player back use it to upgrade
09:47:21Paul_The_NerdThough intentionally claiming to have not voided your warranty when you in fact have is technically fraud in many locales, and I feel morally obligated to inform you of this.

09:56:32peturamiconn: was that a gain change you did?
09:56:41modaooooh... is the irver hdd adapter the same plug as a cf card?
09:56:49amiconnNope, that was just a disk spinup during analog recording
09:56:55Paul_The_Nerdfughidabowit: Yup, iTunes hides it intentionally. You can also use TagCache to index your music by tags.
09:57:14fughidabowitah ok - how do i load all the files into TagCache
09:57:21peturamiconn: interesting
09:57:37Paul_The_Nerdfughidabowit: The TagCache page in the wiki explains it fully

09:58:15fughidabowitsweet thanks - already found it :)
09:59:20amiconnpetur: Btw, why should boosting at the start of recording not be compatible with prerecording?
09:59:44amiconnJust that prerecording implies the recording is always started, and hence always boosts for spdif in
10:00:28peturamiconn: oh, that way....
10:00:50peturI thought boost the moment you press 'record'
10:01:18modawhat could cause a dead hdd?
10:01:27amiconnYes, if prerecording is not enabled
10:01:48amiconnThis way, we would save energy whenever we can, and still ensure glitch-free recording
10:01:53fughidabowithey Paul: do i need to install Tag Cache separately?
10:02:28amiconnYour patch is already perfect for H300, just H1x0 needs a bit of extension
10:02:32Paul_The_Nerdfughidabowit: Nope, it's built in
10:03:08Paul_The_Nerdmoda: Age, bad luck, dropping your player, faulty parts, any of about 6 million other things

14:26:40peturbleh... at least the h100 remote will be usable for looking at logf messages
14:27:12petura total of 3 voters. impressive :p
14:27:42whatboutbobwow...i'm surprised i haven't noticed it before. i've heard noise in recordings before but figured it was my mics.......
14:28:27 Quit dpro ("0ff160")
14:28:58whatboutbobfor example, with 20dB of gain, levels with remote plugged in and no mic are: -72 and -63
14:29:15peturI can open up the remote and check it when it arrives, but I guess it's just picking up noise on the lines that go to the uda
14:29:24whatboutbobsame, but with remote removed, shows −−81dB on both channels.
14:29:42amiconnIriver definitely seems to have a grounding problem
14:30:21amiconnIt's most probably in the main unit, and it differs between individual units
14:31:27LinusNit is in the main unit
14:32:07peturis it the same for h3x0 as h1x0?
14:32:07LinusNi haven't yet found a way to modify a ticking unit though
14:32:23LinusN(not that i have tried *that* hard)
14:33:02whatboutbob'reduce ticking' makes no impact on the noise (but i'm guessing you smart cookies already knew that)
14:33:55whatboutbobso that'll be what's picking up the damn cell phone interference then. the remote's acting like a giant antenna.
14:34:42peturmaybe tape some alu foil inside the remote?

15:09:29whatboutbobpetur: likewise. dammit...this is irritating.
15:10:20linuxstbdaurn|afk: Start with tools/configure. Then look at firmware/export/config.h and the config-???.h files in the same place. You'll need to create a new config-[targetname].h file and #include it from config.h
15:10:56whatboutbobLinusN: so if its a ground issue, do you suspect the remote tick during playack is related. So if I find a way to ground the main unit, both problems could be solved? (yeah...a lot of ifs in that sentence)
15:11:27LinusNthe problem is that the analog and digital ground are connected on the ticking units
15:13:34LinusNmost likely a mistake, since there is still a resistance
15:13:43daurn|afkdaurn|afk: care to help me?

21:38:40BHSPitMonkeyyou can just delete rockbox.ipod and .rockbox from your iPod if you don't want rockbox anymore...
21:39:15BHSPitMonkeythen you'll still have the rockbox bootloader, but it'll boot the apple firmware automatically (and it's just as fast as the original loader)

21:44:37linuxstbidiot^: There is always a risk of it going wrong (I've no idea how big or small that risk is though), in which case you will probably have to restore (and lose your music).
21:44:51BHSPitMonkeyit would have to format your FAT partition if it lose settings
21:44:53linuxstbThe only risk-free option is the one BHSPitMonkey suggested. Just delete the rockbox.ipod file.
