00:55:20Paul_The_NerdY'know, at this very moment, I think if I had one wish, it would be that when people said "Freezing" they meant "The player ceases to respond" rather than what seems to be an almost equally common case "the music skips"
00:55:52sharpei think of freezing in the first sense...
00:56:57Paul_The_NerdTo me freezing definitely means a cease of responsiveness for a generally decent period of time, if not permanently.
00:57:30Paul_The_NerdA half-second skip in music every 15 seconds is not, to me, "freezing" but it seems to be to a lot of people, creating general confusion when people chime in saying "I have the same problem"

00:58:47ender`i've had a freeze about a week ago - first the player went nuts (started skipping songs for a few seconds), then it froze, and i had to borrow a paperclip to reset it
00:59:04Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: Definitely. I put it there myself.
00:59:39Paul_The_NerdI mean it's possible someone snuck in and removed it simply to thwart me, but I honestly find that conclusion unlikely at best.

01:02:10XavierGrIMHO there should be a sticky in forums saying: Alwasy carry a paperclip while using Rockbox :p
01:02:11sharpeer, whatever the person's question was.
01:02:14sharpeor probelm.
01:02:18sharpei'll stop now.
01:05:00sharpei just need to find something to keep me occupied.
01:05:10*Paul_The_Nerd points to the list of bugs in the tracker.
01:05:41*sharpe refers to the fact that most of the bugs are due to something he doesn't have knowledge of, and when they are, they're for a player other than the one he uses.
01:06:02 Part stripwax
01:06:20Paul_The_NerdJust because you don't have the player, doesn't mean you can't figure out where the code is doing something wrong.
01:06:38sharpei know, but it gives me a reason to not try to fix bugs. :)

01:08:24sharpethere's still that one problem, and i can't figure it out. midkay hasn't taken a look at it either.

01:10:13Paul_The_NerdY'know you could always post it to the tracker with a note "Has X bug still"
01:10:28sharpeyeh, but it's not too much of use then.
01:10:34XavierGremail it at <my nick> at g mail . com
01:10:41Paul_The_NerdSomeone else might fix the bug, or figure it out, though
01:10:45sharpeyes, i know.
01:11:02XavierGrI agree with Paul_The_Nerd. It doesn't matter if it has a major bug.

01:23:25sharpeah, who would that be?
01:23:31Paul_The_NerdI mean, not counting the spammer and stuff like that, as those are not only rational but valid reasons to ban someone

05:36:46saab_riderwhen I run it from the icon, it momentarely opens the cmd then closes
05:36:49earHertzor( it's teh same thig), run c:\cygwin/cygwin.bat
05:37:09earHertzok, try the cygwin.bat form the cmd line
05:37:55saab_riderthat is what I did, and I got the message about bash
05:38:58earHertzfrom the dos command line, chdir to c:\cygwin\bash

05:41:41saab_riderok, then?
05:41:51earHertzis there a bash.exe in there?
05:42:25saab_ridernope :(
05:43:01earHertzok, that's a problem
05:43:36earHertzreinstall cygwin
05:44:44saab_riderbare with me, could copying a bash.exe file into the directory solve it? (bash.exe from another install on another machine).. I know it sounds silly
05:44:59earHertzwho knows what else is missing
05:45:06earHertzdo a complete reinstall

10:21:38peturI think they have

10:22:48merbanandid anyone evaluate other fixedpoint decoders then libmad ?
10:22:53preglowmerbanan: i did
10:22:58merbananand the real one
10:23:16preglowi adapted that to rockbox
10:23:23preglowbut i was poorer quality and not too fast anyway
10:23:30markunB4gder: Well, not much else they can work on as they are using closed source codecs.
10:23:48B4gderand btw
10:23:59B4gderwe're still listed to receive dev boards from them
10:24:13preglowclosed source codecs????
10:24:19preglowthat marks my total disinterest, then
10:24:32B4gderI'm only interested in that to run rockbox on it
10:25:07preglowwill the main core still be good enough to decode data without the dsp?
10:25:21B4gderits way fast
10:25:22preglowhrhrm, ok
10:25:30merbananpreglow: did you test the ffmpeg one also ?
10:25:37B4gderthey don't decode audio with dsp at all, afaik

10:27:26merbananget the svn
10:27:41B4gderhowever, the dac is controlled by the DSP
10:27:52B4gderso there needs to be _some_ dsp in the audio-only one too

10:29:16preglowlucky us
10:29:22preglowbloody retard ti
10:29:31preglowdo they think their competitors don't know how their chips work?

10:46:56peturI would have expected that answer to come from preglow :p
10:53:57markunpreglow: eq in 50 steps per octave from 20Hz to 20kHz is about 500 steps, will that be good enough?

11:03:33preglowmarkun: depends what you want to do
11:03:50preglowfor ordinary eq use, probably, to block out an annoying overtone, probably not
11:09:00preglowanyway, i'm not going to code that
11:09:16preglow50 steps per octave is probably more than enough
11:09:45preglowsomething around 40 steps might be better

11:47:54preglow64 bit gcc and all
11:48:45linuxstbIf you just want to install Rockbox, you don't need to compile it yourself though - there are binaries on the website which are automatically built after every CVS change.
11:48:45weyeri'll give it a shot then
11:49:12weyerthe manual starts with the source, that's why i wondered
11:49:29linuxstbThe only issue is the "ipod_fw" installation tool.
11:49:39linuxstb(you'll need to get the source and compile that yourself)
11:49:49linuxstbIt's just a single C file though.
11:50:11weyerah, i thought that was roxbox software itself
11:50:29linuxstbWhich instructions are you following?
11:51:45linuxstbThat's fine. But yes, it's just the ipod_fw tool you need to compile yourself. The rest of that page refers to pre-built binaries which you install on your ipod.

13:18:53whatboutbobdigital: always glitches at the start and end of first mini buffer write around 4 to 6 seconds.
13:19:22whatboutbobthere are also random glitches throughout recordings. i couldn't spot a pattern.
13:19:22 Quit Xinux (Remote closed the connection)
13:19:45peturI wonder what's happening at the beginning of the recording. Is that with/without prerecording, is the hdd spinning or off when you hit rec?
13:19:54whatboutbob...including during disk writes and volume changes...
13:20:01whatboutbobno pre-recording.
13:20:21whatboutbobi've not noticed the hdd spinning...
13:20:33amiconnwhatboutbob: Do you have backlight fading enabled?
13:20:48whatboutbobchecking...(but shouldn't)
13:21:00zigfordHey hey. Is there a way to download the entire rockbox-user mailing list?
13:21:17zigfordI need something to read on the loo
13:21:41whatboutbobbacklight is set to 4 seconds.....
13:21:57whatboutbobfade in set to 500ms
13:22:06whatboutbobfade out: 2seconds...
13:22:11amiconnFade out is what I'm interested in here
13:22:14whatboutbobthat's getting awful close to the timing...
13:22:21amiconnOk, so it's what I observed
13:22:38amiconnA cpu frequency change causes glitches in spdif recording
13:22:48amiconn(glitches == lost samples)
13:23:04amiconnStrangely enough, it _only_ affects spdif, not analog
13:23:19amiconnBacklight fading boosts the cpu
13:23:48whatboutbobamiconn: analog i always get an inaudible glitch at ~5 seconds.
13:23:55amiconnThis isn't because it needs that much power, but because it needs stable timing.
13:24:26peturh340 has no fading :(
13:24:30amiconnwhatboutbob: Disable backlight fade in & fade out, and test again. I'm sure you won't get the glitches at start
13:25:05whatboutbobamiconn: was just in the process of doing so. :)
13:25:06amiconnpetur: Ye, but it also doesn't have spdif
13:25:55amiconnwhatboutbob: The inaudible glitch (just amplitude change, no lost samples) with analog is probably caused by some load change.
13:26:16*petur wonders if he should get an h1x0 to play with
13:26:18amiconnEither it's the frequency change as well, or the harddisk spinup/spindown
13:26:27amiconnI tend to think it's the latter
13:26:51peturamiconn: I see the amplitude change every time the disk spins up it's unavoidable, but since it's also inaudible, I think we can live with it
13:27:05amiconnpetur: Even with cvs?
13:27:31amiconnOkay, so it's indeed the disk, and hence unavoidable

14:05:27linuxstbPaul_The_Nerd: Sort-of. It's a tricky thing to decide on. I've been thinking that some kind of device-specific forums can't be avoided - mainly for installation and hardware type questions. But maybe those could simply be split by manufacturer, rather than specific players.
14:06:25linuxstbI also don't like the idea of having too many different forums - maybe your list is too many. But it's a difficult balance - I'll think about it and comment on that wiki page.

14:19:39weyeri have no idea
14:20:03weyermost mp3's i ripped of my own cd's, and i never even knew that was possible, so i guess not
14:20:41weyermost tags are created with "easytag" program
14:22:07Mikachuregardless of the tags, shouldn't the file still play?
14:22:17linuxstbMaybe an obvious question, but what buttons are you pressing to play the file?
14:22:38Mikachuweyer: also note that old versions of easytag created invalid id3 v2.3 tags, are you using .12?
14:23:12B4gderI've tagged very many files with easytag just fine
14:23:24weyerlinuxstb: in the filebrowser, the select button (ipodmini, central button)
14:23:37linuxstbAnd then what does your ipod do (in detail) ?
14:23:38Mikachuit writes UTF-8 in id3v2.3 and marks the field as latin1

14:24:14Mikachuthis only matters for tags with nonlatin1-characters though
14:25:12weyeri go to the "muziek" dir on my ipod, "select", choose an album, "select", choose a song, "select", then for a moment "loading" appears, and then i end up in wps

14:34:40B4gderif you want (proper) video, I don't think there's much competition
14:35:01Paul_The_NerdNot counting the various devices designed as actual media players rather than just DAPs.
14:35:15moda|ASOTi want 30fps video.... i dont really want a pmp
14:35:17B4gderoh, right
14:35:40Paul_The_NerdWell, you're pretty much restricted to the 5G then
14:35:49Paul_The_NerdI don't think there's anything else with a decent framerate that isn't a PMP
14:36:14moda|ASOTwhat does the creative vision m do?
14:36:17B4gderand certainly not if you want rockbox
14:36:26B4gderthat probably does video fine
14:36:29Paul_The_NerdThe newest Vision M actually has a really nice looking screen and video.

14:36:45B4gderamiconn: ipod video
14:37:07amiconnWell, even most pmps I've seen don't have *decent* video
14:37:07Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: I think by the time it has decent video, it's reclassified itself as PMP anyway, independent of what the manufacturer calls it

15:59:23linuxstbYes, your music appears in both. Rockbox will boot by default. Hold a button (I think it's record on the h300) whilst turing on your h300 to start the original firmware.

18:46:27woodensoulThe crash occurs when I pres the joystick in to navigate the ID3 database.
18:47:19sharpewell, unforunately, i know nothing of the iRiver ports, sorry I can't help.
18:48:26woodensoulWhich port commands your concentration?

18:50:09woodensoulDo you have the 60GB version?
18:50:21sharpenope, just the thirty version.
18:50:49woodensoulDo you know if the 60GB version is any thicker than the 30GB version?
18:51:19 Quit klrspz ()
18:51:34sharpei believe it isn't
18:53:19woodensoulHow is the 5G port in general? Are most of the features from the other ports available and how is battery life?
18:54:20sharpebattery life is still worse than the apple firmware, i usually get around 4-5 hours with rockbox on mine. but, other than that most features are implemented.
18:55:25woodensoulHow much time do you get with the stock firmware?
18:55:40sharpeprobably, around nine hours, it's been a long time since i've used it.
18:56:06woodensoulDo you use a build with album art enabled?
18:56:31woodensoulDoesn't interest you? It looks pretty nice on the H320.
18:56:48sharpeyeh, doesn't really interest me.
18:57:01amiconnwoodensoul: Re your crashes - how old is the build you are running?
18:57:25woodensoulamiconn: From a couple days ago.
18:57:37amiconnAlso, please try with a cvs build
18:58:07woodensoulI didn't see any changes in the CVS that pertained to the bug.
18:58:20woodensoulIt was a bleeding edge build from a couple days ago.
18:58:22amiconnI refer to the album art patch
18:58:29amiconnAh ok
18:58:56sharpeyay! printing functions work...
18:58:59woodensoulI wouldn't report a bug from the experimental build I'm running on my H320.
18:59:17woodensoulThe bug happens with a bleeding edge build for the H100 series.
19:00:39 Quit thegeek ("( :: NoNameScript 4.03 :: )")
19:01:10woodensoulI guess I should make a bug report, but I thought I'd come here first to see if anyone else noticed the bug.
19:02:03linuxstbwoodensoul: Yes, the 60GB is significantly thicker than the 30GB model. But still thinner than the h1x0/h3x0 players.
19:02:18linuxstb(talking about the ipod 5g)
19:02:18sharpedamn, wrong again.
19:02:34*amiconn would have expected that it is thicker
19:02:57amiconn..for the same reason why the H140 is thicker than the H120 etc
19:03:32woodensoullinuxstb: Thanks for the info. I seen the 30GB version and it's so thin. I would be very tempted if the 60GB version was as thin, but the double platter drive prevents it, I'm guessing.
19:03:56amiconnThe dual platter drive should add 3 mm of thickness
19:04:25 Join thegeek [0] (
19:04:33linuxstbI think the battery is bigger as well (capacity-wise, and I'm guessing physically)
19:05:08sharpewell, i've an operating system that can print strings.
19:05:12sharpego me.
19:05:29woodensoulI see. Do you have any experience with the bug I described? It's the only thing keeping the current CVS builds from being stable for me.
19:05:35*amiconn always wondered why apple puts those low capacity batteries into the newer ipods
19:06:09amiconnBattery runtime seems to be much worse than with other players, even with stock firmware
19:06:19linuxstbAccording to Apple's website, 30GB is 10.9mm thick, and 60GB is 14mm
19:07:29linuxstbWeights are 136g and 156g
19:07:30 Quit webguest25 ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
19:07:47linuxstbwoodensoul: I'm sure I've read a similar bug report. Possibly on the bug tracker.
19:08:30woodensoulMaybe I'll hold of making a new one then and read the current bug report.
19:09:51woodensoulAny clue what I should search by to find it?
19:13:19woodensoulAlso another issue I'd be interested to get feedback on: would anyone be interested in allowing the current playlist to be viewed in a way that albums (or artists, or genres assuming this is added to the ID3 database view method) are shown and able to be moved around as opposed to the current method of only allowing a track list?

19:14:25woodensoulYou could "expand" the album (artist or genre) to see the tracks within, or collapse... you get the picture?
19:16:01amiconn(1) What would be the purpose? (2) Probably very hard to implement, if not impossible
19:17:36woodensoulWell my purpose is that I listen to entire albums almost exclusively and it would be very useful for me to be able to add albums to the playlist and move them around as an album.
19:18:04amiconnI know exactly one (software) player that supports hierarchical playlists. I never understood why, other than making operation more complicated
19:18:34woodensoulI assume that the ability to add albums via the ID3 database is in the works?
19:18:54amiconnSupporting hierarchical playlists also means dropping the de facto standard 'm3u' and invent an own playlist format
19:19:04woodensoulThe Zen Xtra has the functionality I'm describing and I find it very useful since I listen to albums the way I do.
19:19:19amiconnI also listen mainly to album
19:20:09woodensoulWell it really wouldn't have to be hierarchial. I don't really need the ability to expand, but it would be nice to be able to add albums to the playlist and move them around as one group.
19:20:27amiconnMost of the time I play an album, and decide afterwards what album to listen to next. Sometimes I add several albums to a playlist. I never felt the necissity to move them around after adding though
19:21:19woodensoulWhy would it be necessary to change the standard '.m3u'? All of this could be just what is displayed to the user and the .m3u would stay the same.
19:21:29amiconnAnother problem (besides the playlist format) is how rockbox stores playlists in memory
19:21:32Mikachuhow would rockbox keep track of the albums then?
19:22:09woodensoulRockbox could keep the playlist stored the same way, just the way it is displayed would be different, is that possible?
19:22:37amiconnPlaylists are stored as indices into directories. Very fast, very efficient. But rockbox has no way to know which track belongs to a certain album until the track is actually buffered for playback
19:22:47woodensoulI really need to read through that developers documentation and give the source a look. I used C for my senior design project, so I'm sure I could add to the effort.
19:23:30woodensoulIf adding an album through the ID3 database is implemented, this could be done, yes?
19:23:51amiconnNo, not with a total redesign of the playlist system
19:24:29woodensoulWould it be possible to add an album via the ID3 database without a complete redesign of the playlist system?
19:24:35amiconn(which would almost certainly use a multiple of the resources of the current system and be an order of magnitude slower)
19:24:58 Join Febs [0] (
19:25:24amiconnThe problem with m3u is that it just stores paths and filenames, not tags or other metadata
19:26:03amiconnm3u files can contain comments, but since they're comments, m3u manipulating software is free to ditch them
19:26:16 Join Rondom [0] (n=Rondom@
19:26:42woodensoulWell it seems possible to keep that data somewhere and since you're saying it wouldn't require a major redesign to add ID3 database album playlist functionality, the info would be there in the database already.
19:27:16amiconnYes, but not in th eplaylist you generate from it
19:28:00amiconnThat means, you will be able to add an album, or an artist folder etc to your playlist, but you won't be able to move the added tracks as a 'group' later
19:28:29woodensoulWell that, at least, is an improvement :-)
19:28:51woodensoulMoving them around as a group would be nice though.
19:29:22Mikachucan't you already do that?
19:29:34woodensoulNot that I know of.
19:29:37Mikachui mean adding albums and/or artists
19:29:45Mikachui do it all the time in file mode anyway
19:29:55 Quit Xinux ("Leaving")
19:30:07woodensoulYou can do it in file mode for sure, but not in ID3 unless it's been recently added.
19:33:32woodensoulAnd that is what leads me to the bug I'm experiencing.... I browse using ID3 mode most of the time, but when I want to add and album to the playlist I have to switch to file mode to add, and then back to ID3 to browse and then I get the freeze.

20:18:06benanneI'm thinking of installing rockbox onto my 4GB iPod nano... the only thing that's holding me back is that I heard battery life is significantly reduced... I mean, it isn't exactly impressive as it is, so I'm not sure I want it reduced even further. Is it really that bad?

20:26:25linuxstbAFAIK, it's still in.
20:26:41linuxstbBut I guess that's mainly because there are so many other issues.
20:28:04saa[b_r]iderspeaking of the H300.. I was worried that my battery was dieing, so I tested my H300's battery life using RB, I got something between 3-4 hours
20:28:44saa[b_r]idermore like 3.5-4 hours
20:29:14woodensoulIs better battery going to be part of the 3.0 release for the H300 series?
20:30:25kkurbjunlinuxstb, I'll start looking into those bugs and working on ones I know something about

20:31:03RedBrevacould someone have a look at minesweeper3.patch on ? The manual changes have been commited, but this is a code patch...
20:31:23kkurbjununfortunatly most of them seem to be playback issues which I know nothing about

21:16:11woodensoulI haven't tested it thoroughly with all types, but I'v yet to come across a disc that wouldn't rip.
21:16:15dwihnopetur: A pretty funky idea. I'll test that.
21:16:44dwihnopetur: do you think the copying software matters?
21:16:47woodensoulExact Audio Copy 0.9 beta 4 is the version you want.
21:16:59peturactivate the repair subchannel data function from clonecd
21:17:04dwihnowoodensoul: Will get that.
21:17:20dwihnopetur: doesn't that break something?
21:17:36dwihnoeac have done wonders with some _old_ discs of mine
21:17:53peturhmmm I have 0.95 prebeta 5 - too recent?
21:18:17dwihnois it possible to pipe stuff in windows like in linux?
21:18:36dwihnofor example, decoding flac and process it with lame
21:19:19thegeekpiping is possible
21:19:38thegeeknot sure if there are any apps that actually use it (much)
21:19:47*woodensoul uses two disc doctor repair units, one fitted with 2000 grit sandpaper, the other with the standard re-surfacing wheel to repair scratched discs.
21:20:25peturpipes were used more in the dos days when we were still stuck to commandline interfaces
21:20:28woodensoulspraying the disc with water first... of course
21:20:37benannehow do I load music onto it now? Do I just stuff it in the root directory?
21:20:58peturbenanne: make a folder structure as you like
21:21:00dwihnobenanne: Just treat it like any disk attached to your computer
21:21:21benannecool :)
21:21:30dwihnoStructure is a good thing anyhow... Think of the dir limits and stuff

21:22:50benannehmm no
21:22:54benannedon't care much for album covers :p
21:23:08woodensoulOh well, I think it's pretty.
21:23:44woodensoulIt looks nice on my H320.
21:24:30woodensoulMay I suggest the iCatcher WPS? I use a modified version of it on my H120.
21:24:46benanneI'm thinking of using Neeon black meself

21:39:30benannethat's not good either is it
21:39:56Kohlrabithe f2k devs stated thta they can securely rip with f2k

21:41:48benanneokay :)

21:42:01woodensoulI didn't even know you could rip with f2k.

21:45:07woodensouldwihno: the Premium is one of the drives I use. All are configured as follows...
21:45:08peturshit. that's what slowing down the server :/

21:46:21benannewoo, tis playin :D
21:46:39benanneoh dear
21:46:43benannethe theme thing kinda fucked up, heh
21:46:48saa[b_r]iderthere you go
21:47:00benannecan I reset the theme somehow?
21:47:34woodensoulPlextor drives are the only ones I know will do that.
21:47:37saa[b_r]iderselect a different one...
21:47:37dwihnowoodensoul: ah, okay
21:47:38benanneeh, the problem is

21:47:56benannethe background is white, and the fonts are also :p

21:48:36benanneI changed it during playback and then it fucked up :(
21:48:40woodensoulOtherwise some samples won't be ripped. Sorry that's all I really know.
21:48:44benanneseems like only the font changed, but not the background
21:48:52benanneI changed from the whiteish jack theme to the black-ish neeon black theme
21:48:53saa[b_r]iderwhat exactly did you change?
21:49:08woodensoulMost drives can't overread into lead-in and out so some samples can't be ripped.
21:49:09benannethe theme
21:49:13benannethrough "browse themes"
21:49:21benannemaybe if I turn it off and on it will be correct
21:49:24dwihnowoodensoul: heh, I thought it had something to do with protection
21:49:27woodensoulI always get the drive offset from and put that in too.
21:49:31saa[b_r]iderthere is a way to reset
21:49:35benannebut the traditional "hold play" doesn't seem to turn it off
21:49:38benannei have a lot to learn :)
21:49:44saa[b_r]ideralthough I'm not sure how for iPods don't own one
21:49:46woodensouldwihno: Not related to protection as far as I know.
21:50:38woodensoulHas anyone else noticed that seeking within a track no longer breaks the gapless transition?
21:50:38dwihnowoodensoul: so just getting any missing samples then :)
21:50:59saa[b_r]iderthe .cfg file for the theme you chose may not have a setting for font color (or font type for that matter) so the font most likely stayed like it was in the previously loaded theme
21:51:08dwihnowoodensoul: depending on the quality of the optical drive on my new notebook, I'll perhaps just get an external for that purpose (I do listen to a lot of music)
21:51:45woodensouldwihno: I got an enclosure for laptop ripping because in my experience all laptop drives are horrible at ripping with the setup I use.
21:52:03woodensoulvery slow and horrible with scratches

21:53:35benannehmm, slightly annoying, but oh well
21:53:38*petur wonders about the echo
21:53:57woodensoulRipping in burst mode will be fast, but the quality will make it useless.
21:54:23petur*never* rip in burst mode
21:54:42peturit's a recipe for bad rips
21:54:52benanneno wait, not fixed :(
21:55:13peturbenanne: what are you doing?
21:55:32benannetrying to fix my theme trouble
21:55:37benanneit seems to have combined two themes now
21:55:47benannethe white background from the jack2 theme with the white text from the neeon black theme
21:55:50woodensoulif you need a suggestion for a drive that's good for ripping audio and happens to burn DL DVDs as a bonus... Toshiba SD-R 5372
21:56:10woodensoulI actually find it better than the Plextor Premium often and that's really saying something
21:56:16woodensoulI got it for less than $50.
21:56:23peturbenanne: a theme consist of a .wps and a .cfg - you need both
21:56:38benanneI just extracted the zipfile into .rockbox
21:56:43benannefor both themes
21:57:14peturright, so one of the themes probably doesn't specify the bg color. bad theme :(
21:57:46benanneI think i'll just reinstall or something
21:58:33*woodensoul is off to finish season 3 of 24.
21:58:39peturif you change a setting, you need to stop the ipod a normal way for the setting to get stored. If you reset it or plug the usb cable it reboots without saving (again, known problem)
21:58:45benanneoh, damn
21:58:52peturbenanne: switch on hold while booting
21:59:00peturit will reset your settings
21:59:04benanneoh lol
21:59:08benannewell i'm already reinstalling heh
21:59:18peturwon't help you....

22:01:21benanneI get "error accessing playlist control file" now though :(
22:01:23peturjust kidding
22:01:50benannebut playback works fine
22:01:55bluebrotherRedBreva: how have you build up your themes page? Is it statically?
22:02:07RedBrevaAlso, good tip is boot into Apple firmware before connecting to PC, the USB mode is *way* faster than the bootloader USB mode (At The Moment) and if you have the option to 'Eject' the device before unplugging, it seems to help
22:02:10benannevery nice, heh
22:02:18RedBrevabluebrother: Yep, afraid so..
22:02:32benannewell, i always do "eject /dev/sdb" before unplugging
22:02:40benannethe last time it seemed to work without having to hard reset
22:02:54bluebrotherhmm, I just had the idea of having something that builds up automatically. Like having a .zip and a description file
22:03:06benanneah, it has an equalizer :o
22:03:20bluebrothermaybe I should start looking into php again ...
22:03:47bluebrothershouldn't be difficult. Maybe rockbox itself wants to host something like that?
22:03:58RedBrevaThe idea was to get a site that worked first, and then work out some automation later, but then I had a hernia repair, and sitting up for more than 20 minutes became difficult for a few weeks...
22:04:00benannephp is evil :p
22:04:15bluebrotherphp is great ;-)
22:04:18peturRedBreva: ouch!
22:04:28RedBrevaI know... :(
22:04:29benanneI hate php

22:59:31pekujaHi. I have an iriver H320. I was looking at the Rockbox page, and the front page and the WhyRockBox page seem to say that the H3xx-series is supported, but the FAQ says that it's still in development. Which is true?

23:02:17pekujaThanks. I think I'll go download the firmware.
23:02:26peturpekuja: also note that battery life is a bit worse than iriver firmware, a bug that still needs fixing
23:03:08peturall other things are better than iriver firmware ;)
23:06:14Tom_apart from you can't use the SRS WOW :(
23:06:51peturthat crap ruins your music
23:07:06Tom_how does it 'ruin' your music?
23:07:17FebsAs far as I'm concerned, the lack of SRS WOW is a feature.
23:07:26peturit makes it sound bad
23:07:43Tom_how does it make it sound 'bad' ?
23:08:33FebsBy altering phase information to simulate spatial cues, for one thing.
23:08:37peturas in 'not as intended by the artist' ? times 10
23:08:58pekujawhat's SRS WOW?
23:09:05Tom_listening to your music in mp3/ogg isn't intended by the artist
23:09:46Tom_Yeah k, elvis intended his music to be ripped to MP3. Nice!
23:09:46bluebrotherFebs: have you noted my comment on this:
23:10:10pekujais there no Linux version of the H3xx firmware patcher?
23:10:26Tom_run it under wine
23:10:28deadlierc*crosses fingers* okay, boot!!
23:10:38pekujaTom_, does it run under wine?
23:10:44bluebrotherI'm thinking if it would be better using <name>-<resolution>-<name> or omitting the <resolution> if <name> is used.
23:11:17Tom_Come on Febs, did Elvis really intend you to listen to his music in MP3 format?
23:11:19deadliercwell, no luck :(
23:11:25Tom_Or is that BS too?
23:11:32Bagder /whois Elvis
23:11:48deadliercdoes Rockbox take a while to load or should it go right away? (4g iPod)
23:11:50bluebrotherlet me guess ... Elvis isn't on this channel?
23:11:57pekujaI doubt Elvis cared about the format you listen to it in
23:11:59FebsIf you take care in encoding your mp3/ogg, the result can be perceptually transparent , ie., indistinguishable from the CD.
23:12:07pekujas/it/his music/
23:12:51FebsPersonally, I have produced three CDs and recorded on several others. I've never found an SRS WOW setting that is even close to anything *I* intended for that music.
23:13:04FebsMP3s made from my CD, however, sound like my CD.

23:18:39FebsYeah, IMO, those screenshots are very difficult to read.
23:18:42bluebrotheri.e. having h300 as -220x176x16 and the video -220-176-16-video
23:18:47bluebrotheror different way round.
23:18:58FebsOr using a bigger font?

23:19:33pekujastevenm, oh, I don't need it really. I never used it other than watching the demo video once :-P
23:19:33bluebrotherusing a bigger font was suggested for 3.1, wasn't it? So we could use that bigger font ... if we knew which it will be

23:20:23Febsbluebrother, I haven't looked at the 3.1 goals recently, but I would definitely support a bigger system font.
23:21:05FebsTom_,(1) whether SRS WOW is a "better" function is something that is highly subjective.
23:21:13bluebrotherI'd say postpone the bigger resolution problem past 3.0
23:21:21 Quit Ribs ("Leaving")
23:21:33bluebrotherand try to get it "smooth" internally now.
23:21:37Febs(2) Rockbox has a number of features, in particular parametric EQ and crossfeed, that are IMO "better" than SRS WOW
23:21:51crashdbluebrother: do we really need to waste cycles on anti-aliasing?

23:23:02MikachuFebs: this is why we use tabcomplete :)

23:23:55FebsTom_, actually, that's not quite true. Dolby's patents stop you from doing so, but you could implement an SRS-like feature.
23:24:19crashdisn't "SRS-WOW" just ridiculously boosted bass?
23:24:19Mikachuhm, he replied to ping in 1.7 seconds but looks like lagging anyway? weird
23:24:28FebsMikachu, no tab complete on the web interface :( and my company has a web filter that blocks me from using IRC.
23:24:48Mikachuin case you didn't notice, bagder kicked him a while ago

23:26:22pekujaok, I think my iriver is broken now, and I didn't even install Rockbox yet O__o
23:27:05pekujaI have nothing plugged into it, and then it says "charging..." "complete" "connected" and then won't react to anything but a hard reset
23:27:40Febspekuja, go to and look for the thread called "How to fix the [rare] always connected bug."
23:27:56pekujawhoa, thanks

23:40:53dionoeahello all. I used to have an archos recorder 6GB with rockbox (which i really enjoyed using) and i'm planning on buying a new mp3 player. Is the rockbox port for video iPods usable ?
23:41:24Febsdionoea, I've been using it since the day I bought my ipod about a month and a half ago.

23:44:45*petur tries to understand cpu_boost() ... what a strange way to code that logic
23:44:46Bagderpremature is not even the name for it
23:44:48yodazthe goal is using the ipode mini as a standard usb key, and rockbox to play mp3
23:44:51Febsdionoea, if you use a WPS with peakmeters active, or if you use the graphic EQ, it can cause skipping.
23:45:34oboIs AAC planned as part of 3.0? (it's just there was some talk of dropping it...)
23:45:43 Join akaidiot [0] (
23:45:55dionoeai saw that some nice color WPS were available ... that's an improvement over the archos recorder :)
23:46:01FebsLikewise, if you spin through the scroll wheel too fast, that can cause music to glitch. But these are relatively small things.
23:46:08Paul_The_NerdI wonder if this is going to be a good thing or a bad thing.

23:48:32zivan56how exactly is Sandisk "wooing" Rockbox? Or is this just speculation from IRC/Forum posts
23:48:36Paul_The_NerdBagder: You think it's just someone who picked it up from like, the IRC logs?
23:48:48BagderPaul_The_Nerd: yes, and my mention it in the forums
23:49:01sbrick89ok more specifically, is there a list of platforms that rockbox is being actively ported to?
23:49:02dionoeabtw, i was wondering if some of the new players would work as usb hosts, like archo's gmini 402 for example? (any known hardware related problems?)
23:49:28dionoea(and provided that a usb driver existed in rockbox for those players)
23:49:36FebsWell, the story has hit CNET as well:,39029432,49273890,00.htm

23:51:49pekujathe seamless playback is cool. I like listening to progressive rock, many of those albums are designed to be played seamlessly

23:53:22Mikachuthere are like a hundred people in here that could have seen the conversation
23:53:40Paul_The_NerdFebs: That is possible, since "Open Source Firmware" is the opposite end of the spectrum from how closed Apple's iBlah system is, and Sandisk has been going very anti-iPod right now.
23:54:08sbrick89bagder: so i guess my lyra's prolly not getting much attention?... das cool, just wanted to know
23:54:17Paul_The_Nerddionoea: Some players have the hardware for USB Host (the iRiver H300 and iAudio X5 do) but Rockbox doesn't have any support for it yet.
23:54:29Bagdersbrick89: there's not been any reports about any such attempts, afaik
23:54:43Bagdersbrick89: a port needs one or a team of interested people, and then just go

23:55:09sbrick89well.. it needs knowledgable people w/ available equipment to test on, etc...
23:55:10yodazis there a way to use an ipod with rockbox as a standard usb key formatted in fat32 with only one partition ?

23:57:10yodazyou just ROCKS guys !
23:57:12Paul_The_Nerddionoea: In many cases the hardware can only be slave, yes. I _think_ that someone has said the iPod Hardware could potentially allow host too, since it's actually more software controlled, but I really don't know too much about it either, just what I've observed people saying.
23:57:30Bagderin fact, I _think_ it uses a tms320 since the Lyra RD2780 does
23:58:00sbrick89bagder: i'm sure ya know... like i said was just curious since i'd love to use the FM as a recorder, which the lyra chooses not to allow :P
