00:06:31Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: Even with a good charger, when I plug in the charger, the battery % shows at like, 6%. I'm afraid of overheating my batteries because the trickle charge won't kick in. Should I be?
00:07:48 Quit petur ("here today, gone tomorrow")
00:08:27amiconnHow long did you keep it plugged, and what batteries are in there?
00:08:43amiconnDid you charge the batteries externally?
00:08:51Paul_The_NerdI've charged them externally a few times
00:08:55Paul_The_Nerd2650mah batteries.
00:09:44amiconnI mean, were they fully charged when you put them in, and then immediately connected the charger?
00:09:52amiconnOr did you run them down
00:09:55Paul_The_NerdI let them discharge for a while, down to about 10%
00:10:10Paul_The_NerdI was running a playback test to see how long they lasted, got about 14.5 hours.
00:10:37Paul_The_NerdPlugged it in a good bit ago, it sayve 5.19V 6%
00:10:45amiconnThe battery percentage is rather coarse, unlike with LiIon
00:11:09amiconnA full charge can take quite some time, especially with higher capacity batteries
00:11:16amiconnWhat charger do you use now?
00:11:53Paul_The_NerdIt's a 9v 1200mah charger.
00:12:14amiconnThen charging will take like forever
00:12:19Paul_The_NerdShould I change it to 12v?
00:12:36amiconnYes if it's regulated
00:13:07amiconnYou can expect a full charge to take 8..10 hours with your batteries, and either the stock charger, or a 12V regulated one
00:13:39 Quit Xerion (" ")
00:13:49amiconnWit 9V regulated, it will take days - if the current balance is positive at all
00:14:34Paul_The_NerdIf I set it to 12v, it doesn't charge at all
00:15:16Paul_The_NerdI plug it in, and Rockbox boots.
00:15:23 Quit akaidiot (Remote closed the connection)
00:15:23Paul_The_NerdNo charging indicator anywhere
00:15:40amiconnAnd if you set it back to 9V it shows a charging indicator?
00:15:54 Join Spiderling20 [0] (
00:16:05Paul_The_NerdBy the way, my battery status is at about 47% now that I've unplugged the charger.
00:16:14amiconnHmm... I'd almost think your charger is faulty... outputs no voltage at the 12V setting
00:16:36Paul_The_NerdActually, it's... going up.
00:16:50Paul_The_NerdSeems to be fluctuating around the 50% mark, +/- 2%
00:16:58amiconnThe archos boots as soon as it senses any voltage at the dc input, even a short pulse
00:17:22 Join Xerion [0] (
00:17:42amiconnI can cause my recorder to boot by plugging the dc end of a charger that I disconnected from mains a day ago - just by the residual voltage in the filter cap
00:17:48Paul_The_NerdAnyway, this is my concernt. It was charging on the 9v, supposedly, and had been "Charging" for over a half hour, said 6% (when I'd plugged it in with 10% remaining) now that it's unplugged it says 50%, and I'm just confused.

00:20:19amiconnIf you charged for approx. half an hour, the real charging state could only have increased by less than 10 %
00:20:44Paul_The_NerdIt was greater than half an hour.
00:20:48Paul_The_NerdI'm not wholly certain how long it was
00:20:53 Part Spiderling20
00:20:53Paul_The_NerdCould be as much as two hours or so
00:20:56amiconnThat is, with 12V regulated, or the stock 9V unregulated charger (which outputs about 10.5V at the load the archos causes)
00:21:27amiconnThe maximum charging current of the archos is 350mA
00:21:28Paul_The_NerdAll I'm certain of is that at least one show started and completed while it was charging, so at least that much time passed. I've been doing various things and I'm not certain when I plugged it in. =/
00:21:56Paul_The_NerdI was just concerned that during the whole charging process it showed a lower percentage than the firmware reported before I started charging.
00:22:02amiconnConnecting a higher voltage than ~11V only increases the heat generated in the charging circuit
00:22:32amiconnThe percentages are very coarse. We can't do much better with NiMH
00:23:07 Quit Poka64 ("nite all, Go sweden")
00:23:18Paul_The_NerdI've just never seen *anything* but something in the 3-8% range when plugging in the charger.
00:23:28 Join JdGordon [0] (
00:23:36amiconnIf you ask battery experts, they'll all tell you that it's practically impossible to determine the real charge state of a NiMH/NiCd battery by measuring the voltage only
00:23:38Paul_The_NerdIndependent of current charge state of the batteries.
00:23:43amiconn..but the voltage is all we have
00:23:58Paul_The_NerdWhat voltage is "fully charged"?
00:24:36amiconnThen the charging algorithm on recorder v1 (the only rockbox target with software controlled charging) still leaves something to be desired
00:24:36scorchePaul_The_Nerd: i see mins as 5.70-5.71
00:24:50amiconnIt usually is over-cautious

00:25:27mirakwhat's the best skin in color ?
00:26:08Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: More like "What voltage should I disconnect the charger at if it still reports single-digit percents at much higher voltages)?
00:26:12 Quit ender` (" HydraIRC -> <-")
00:26:21amiconnThe voltage of a NiMH cell depends on many factors. End-of-charge is usually detected by montitoring voltage chages over time

00:27:52amiconnVoltage display also differs from archos to archos, probably due to tolerances in some voltage divider resistors
00:28:17markunamiconn: iriver has put a 8-bit microcontroller in their E10. Any idea what it could be used for?
00:28:20amiconnI'd just let it charge. There's also a safety timeout built into rockbox charging
00:28:41Paul_The_NerdAnd the worst that could happen is just me needing new batteries again?
00:28:45markunmirak: which player?
00:29:22amiconn(which btw hits too early with high-capacity cells when charging right on boot, probably because chgarging is set up before settings are loaded)
00:29:36 Join akaidiota [0] (
00:29:43amiconnI always charge the recorder *in* rockbox, i.e. boot first, then connect the charger
00:29:59amiconn(or sometimes connect the charger, then start with 'on')
00:30:33mirakmarkun: h300

00:30:54mirakI mean I don't follow what's happening
00:31:46amiconnPaul_The_Nerd: Yes, but even that is unlikely, especially with high capacity cells
00:32:26Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: Fine, I just don't want to do anything with even any risk of damaging the player itself, because it belongs to my brother.
00:32:31preglowmarkun: atmel controller?
00:32:46amiconnNiMH cells can take overcharging for quite a while at I10, and that's almost all the archos provides
00:32:54markunpreglow: ATmega88
00:33:03preglowcool, i've programmed those
00:33:17preglowi wouldn't expect to find one in an mp3 player, though

01:04:16AdventSon128hey guys
01:04:52AdventSon128any 1 here have some spare time for 2 noob questions ?
01:05:05sharpeAdventSon128: go for it.
01:05:26AdventSon128i have opened a firmware but it comes out as a .rom file
01:05:35AdventSon128can i dont know how to edit it
01:05:51sharpefirmware as in, the original firmware, or the rockbox firmware?
01:06:20AdventSon128the orginal firmware its for the sansa e200
01:06:28 Quit mongey1 ("( :: NoNameScript 4.03 :: )")
01:07:07sharpewell, that player isn't supported by rockbox.
01:07:14AdventSon128yeah i know
01:07:26AdventSon128i am on a team of peeps so we can try to port it
01:07:45sharpeah, alright.
01:07:54sharpeand what are you trying to do with the original firmware?
01:07:58Paul_The_NerdWell, A) You don't want to "edit" the original firmware anyway
01:08:16AdventSon128y wouldnt I ?
01:08:29Paul_The_NerdWhat would you be trying to do by editing it?
01:08:42AdventSon128maybe change the images/strings
01:08:43stripwaxAdventSon128 - you would have to "edit" all of it until there's basically none left
01:08:55Paul_The_NerdAdventSon128: and see, that's nothing to do with Rockbox at all.
01:09:01stripwax(if you really mean you want to port rockbox)
01:09:09Paul_The_NerdRockbox is a replacement firmware
01:09:17Paul_The_NerdYou get it ported, and put it in place of the original
01:09:25AdventSon128ohh alright
01:09:33ashridahstripwax: well, realistically speaking, he may need to squeeze in a boot loader
01:09:36ashridahwhich would be 'editing'
01:09:42ashridahbut you wouldn't do that by hand
01:10:00 Join Amien [0] (
01:10:13stripwax(bah - ok, that's true. I remember back in the early days of h1xx someone tried to hack in a bootloader by hand.. it didn't work though)
01:10:16AdventSon128then how would i do that ?
01:10:22ashridahAdventSon128: you probably want to disassemble it, which means you're going to need to understand the hardware itself
01:10:22Amienhi .. anyone got any idea why my tags are all wrong in ID3-mode?
01:10:32stripwaxAmien - define "wrong"
01:10:47Pieter_writing/hacking a bootloader.. that wouldn't be a 'noob' question, would it?
01:10:58ashridah(ie, what 'address' it starts from, where the rom is mapped to, the type of cpu, and thus, the assembly to work with, etc)
01:11:07Amiendifferent genre's .. while i checked .. i changed them all to 1 genre
01:11:34stripwaxAmien - hrm, what kind of files are they - - and does the right genre show up in, say, Winamp?
01:11:35antil33ti had a good play with rockbox last night
01:11:49Paul_The_Nerdashridah: Well we at least know that it's the PP5024 which has an ARM7 core. The firmware is likely in the same format as that for the H10 and a variety of other portalplayer devices, though it seems not too much has been figured about the MI4 files (which are encrypted) if I recall
01:11:55Amienin the original firmware it shows all up ok
01:11:57Amienall mp3 files
01:12:07sharpeAmien: you're using tagcache right?
01:12:20sharpehave you forced an update?
01:12:21ashridahAdventSon128: lets just say that without embedded programming experience, it's not likely to be too easy for you. changing images might not be too bad, but very error prone without the above disassembly skills
01:12:44ashridahPaul_The_Nerd: awesome
01:12:45Pieter_besides, even the images might be encrypted...
01:13:01stripwaxashridah - heh, I didn't reverse engineer anything to get ihpbmp working ;-)
01:13:01markungood evening Pieter_
01:13:11Amienyes .. updating in backgrp .. msg is gone in 3 sec .. nothing happends
01:13:18stripwax(well, yeah, ok, I did, but not using a disassembler)
01:13:21Pieter_hey markun :)
01:13:30sharpetry deleteing the tagcache files, and forcing an update.
01:13:37ashridahstripwax: but i'm betting that someone else had already mapped out the contents of the .hex file;)
01:13:52stripwaxashridah - nope, that was me ;-)
01:14:12AdventSon128hmm alright then
01:14:25stripwaxAgree that it might be error prone (and perhaps I was just lucky to get it right)
01:15:18Paul_The_Nerdashridah: The nice thing is that MP3 players from at least 3 manufacturers seem to do it this way, and it's very likely the reference way PortalPlayer provides, so solving it will accelerate or help other people start several other ports.

01:16:23sharpein /.rockbox/
01:17:27antil33tdoes rockbox have video support?
01:17:33sharpeantil33t: no.
01:17:47*scorche wonders how many times a day that gets asked
01:18:00antil33theh, i diddnt think it did
01:18:12sharpewe should keep count
01:18:21scorchemaybe we should put that in the topic
01:18:39antil33tjust stick it in the subject
01:18:40scorcheRockbox 3.0? Yes, we're working on it...and no, we don't provide video support!
01:18:52Amienwhy was video support not added? :) .. is that the second most asked question?
01:19:01sharpe"Rockbox 3.0? Yes, we're working on it. And by working on it, we mean, we are not working on video support."
01:19:14stripwaxAmien - why is any feature not added? (because no-one's done it .. yet ..)
01:19:30Paul_The_NerdAmien: Because nobody's done it. There's still plenty left to do to get audio working the best it can, and nobody who seems to really *want* video wants it enough to actually do something about it.
01:20:04Amienwould divx be possible?
01:20:10Paul_The_NerdProbably not on most players
01:20:16stripwaxAmien - maybe
01:20:23antil33tyeah the audio is great
01:20:41stripwaxBut I guess until anyone really gets stuck into investigating video codecs on rockbox, no-one's really going to know what is and is not possible.
01:21:07Paul_The_Nerdstripwax: It's *very* unlikely Divx will be usable on any of the current players. Most of them just aren't fast enough.
01:21:26Amienis 3.0 getting a better layout for the bookmarks? like a scrolldown option?
01:21:34stripwaxPaul_The_Nerd - right, other than the ipod 5g perhaps
01:21:37antil33tjust overclock the ipod :D
01:21:47stripwaxantil33t - after you! ;-)
01:21:50sharpeantil33t: that's not really an option.
01:21:56Paul_The_Nerdstripwax: The 5G's broadcom chip may decode in hardware, which means we'd be stuck with whatever formats the chip itself supports.
01:22:12sharpewhich is mp4's, mov's, and that's... about it?
01:22:14antil33thmm we would get 2 formats :) w00t
01:22:20antil33tno not mov's
01:22:22stripwaxanyone know much about the broadcom chip?
01:22:34Paul_The_NerdBroadcom does

01:22:39AmienON+PLAY .. what keys is that .. i tried them all
01:22:40sharpestripwax: i don't think anyone's tried to understand it.
01:22:53antil33tits in your manual for you 5g :)
01:23:01Paul_The_NerdAmien: On iPods it actually means "The next-track button"
01:23:01Amien(to delete bookmarks)
01:23:15Paul_The_NerdAmien: The string doesn't have an iPod-specific version yet.
01:23:34stripwaxsharpe - fairy nuff. Since the broadcom chip has its own firmware file I'm guessing it is at least moderately programmable
01:23:57sharpestripwax: i don't think there is any datasheets for it either

02:29:09sigmountegot a strange think today with my ipod nano , after trying the install from linux , i've found that my Nano 2g does not have a partition table , and everything is in /dev/sda directly
02:29:12sharpehmm. that's nice.
02:29:44Mikachuthat is not how it should be, you will get the sad ipod face
02:30:23sigmountethe sad ipod face ? they are some ipod where it is not possible to use rockbox ?
02:30:45sharpeno, when the partition table is screwed, you get a sad ipod.
02:31:06sigmountesomething to do about that ?
02:31:16sharperestore it...
02:31:35sigmountebut it work perfectly in this stat
02:31:45Mikachusigmounte: what does ls -l /dev/sda show you?

02:35:21sigmounteso after using the restore tool , i 'll have sda1 and sda2 ?
02:37:49Mikachuand you can actually mount /dev/sda?
02:39:11sigmountenot able to mount it
02:39:43sigmountein windows it find a new hard drive , but ask to format it
02:40:30sharpeyeh, you're best off using the restore utility.

03:10:19sigmounteit works :)
03:10:47sigmounteok i'll continu asking bad question , will it be possible to play video ?
03:18:10egotrippenif someone decides to code it
03:18:23egotrippeni think that's the official answer :)
03:19:45sigmounteho the pleasure to have streamripper directly send mp3 using usbfs :)
03:20:17egotrippeni can't believe apple gets away with touting itunes as a feature
03:21:21egotrippeni'm kind of interested in the video ipod, now that rockbox is out for it
03:21:24egotrippenbecause of the video out
03:21:39egotrippenbut, some things apple does just doesn't sit right with me
03:22:01egotrippenthey're all about, all about propriety software, cables, whatever
03:22:54egotrippenthey changed the wiring of their video cables, so the red, white, and yellow plugs only match up on their $20 white video cable
03:23:21egotrippenon a regular one, red is video, white is right audio, yellow is left audio
03:24:30sharpeit's just shifted left one plug.
03:24:36Mikachuum, no?
03:24:43Mikachured and white are audio, yellow is video
03:25:27sharpehe's talking about when you use a regular cable with the ipod video.
03:25:41egotrippenit's just shifted one peg, but
03:25:59egotrippenif someone didn't know that, they'd think they needed the apple cable
03:26:05egotrippenand not just a $5 regular cable
03:26:21egotrippeni only found out because i was trying to find other mp3 players with video out
03:26:39Mikachuwouldn't you at least always have one audio cable in an audio slot?
03:27:20egotrippenif i had one audio channel working, and i expeted video to be working
03:27:37egotrippeni honestly don't know if i'd think to switch the yellow plug
03:27:48Mikachuif you were lucky you would notice it was only one channel and the wrong one
03:27:51egotrippenand i'm sure many people don't think to
03:28:24egotrippenif i noticed it was the wrong audio channel, maybe, there's a chance
03:28:34egotrippenthat i'd think they were all just switched
03:29:08egotrippenbut i probably wouldn't notice, especially on a TV show
03:29:33egotrippenand it bothers me they would do something like that just to try and get someone to buy their 'special' cable
03:29:53egotrippenthat's really what i'm talking about.. it seems unethical, if though i know about it and won't get screwed by it
03:30:15Mikachui agree
03:31:04egotrippenon the other hand, it might not stop me from getting an ipod
03:31:11egotrippendamn capitalism
03:31:44egotrippenit'd cost less to sell my H340 and upgrade to a 60 gig with TV out than to get a 60 gig HD replacement

05:40:41Paul_The_NerdIs there anything abnormal about it at all (changed HD, or anything)?

05:45:29midkaysharpe, why?
05:45:59sharpemidkay: which ?
05:46:09midkay"someone remove him".
05:46:19sharpeasking if anyone had.
05:46:29sharpebecause it seems someone did
05:46:41midkaymaybe "did somebody remove him?" would be smarter than "somebody remove him?".
05:46:51midkayclearer, at least..
05:46:56sharpehe was already removed by the time i wrote it :)
05:47:12midkayso indeed a 'did' would make things clearer.
05:47:22sharpein my mind it was clear. hah.
05:47:52sharpemidkay, do you still use that bootloader i sent you?
05:48:09sharpedo you notice any difference?
05:48:16sharpeer, in speed of loading-wise?
05:48:24midkaynot really..
05:48:29sharpei don't either.
05:48:44sharpei was just wondering.
05:48:51midkayit seems like it may take a little longer to read the settings + apply them, but if that, not noticeable at all really..
05:49:21sharpeif anything, you get to see your name for a split second longer. :-D
05:50:22midkaywell, not necessarily, since the slowdown should only be in loading the settings.. while the apple logo is still there.
05:50:40sharpei'll check what code i wrote... :)

05:52:23chendo1it doesn't start playing until the buffer is filled
05:52:29chendo1and it acts like it's frozen and stuff...
05:52:37chendo1should i nuke .rockbox and copy a working one over?
05:52:54sharpewhy do i have lcd_clear_display() run when it loads the fgcolor/bgcolor?

05:55:06chendo1any ideas?
05:55:11midkaythe colors must be set, then the lcd cleared, then the lcd updated.
05:55:18midkaydoesn't matter where, of course, just in that general order.
05:55:35sharpeyeah, but in this case, it's, color set, cleared, color set, cleared, updated.

11:22:38peturoh... what's up?
11:22:42amiconnThing is, I do initialise all the supposed-to-be usbotg related gpio pins the same way as iriver
11:23:28amiconnThen I try sending both the DC and the HC to sleep, as per embedded programming guide + some info from the disassembly
11:23:43amiconnHowever, the HC just refuses to go to sleep :(
11:24:33amiconnI write 0x06c0 to HC_CONTROL, but the chip doesn't seem to like that
11:24:51amiconnI can still access all HC registers, and when reading back HC_CONTROL, I get 0x0600
11:25:48peturI *may* have some time this weekend - you have a patch available? ;) Also, if Linus can confirm power consumtion is already reduced a lot, maybe you can commit what you have so far?
11:26:01amiconnEither we're still missing something stupid about the ports (LinusN? Any news about gpios?)...
11:26:15LinusNamiconn: haven't had time to work on it
11:26:55chendo1i've got no clue how you guys do things, but is it possible to do something like get some multimeter thing
11:26:56petursomething is probably waking up the HC after you send it to sleep
11:27:05chendo1and measure the voltage on the pins or something? ;/
11:27:05amiconn...or the chip needs to be properly initialised before it's possible to send it to sleep, i.e. the USB_RESET -> USB_SUSPEND transition might be invalid/forbidden/whatever
11:27:14chendo1on the normal firmware
11:27:41amiconnThe ISP1362 has 2 pins that indicate whether the DC and/or the HC is sleeping
11:28:27amiconnpetur: In retailos, there's a long & complex function sequence called between port initialisation and the send-to-sleep sequence
11:28:50amiconnI tried following that, but with no positive result so far
11:29:56chendo1well, a daily build runs fine ;o

11:32:14chendo1this is probably a stupid question, but since there's coldfire emulators, is there a way to run the iriver firmware in a simulator?
11:33:00linuxstbI don't believe the available emulators emulate the type of coldfire inside the iriver. You would also need to emulate the rest of the hardware...
11:33:04amiconnThis function (which calls a shitload of nested sub-function) seems to init the usbotg controller, and returns 0 on success
11:33:29amiconnIf (and only if) it returns 0, the send-to-sleep sequence is executed

17:29:07hardeephmmm, wps bitmap loading on archos recorder is really slow
17:29:24hardeepboot time with iCatcher wps went from 8s to 27s
17:29:40amiconnwps bitmap loading is slow on all targets
17:29:54hardeepthe boot time was negligible on ipod
17:30:02hardeeph100/h300/ondio added about 3s
17:30:11amiconnOn H300, iCatcher causes a very notable delay
17:30:21hardeepwent from 8s to 11s for me
17:30:26hardeepon h300
17:30:46hardeep6->9 on h100, 3->5 on ondio
17:31:20amiconnI think the load delay is mainly caused by the many seeks

17:31:27hardeeppersonally, i think those numbers are okay... you can always change wps if you want faster boot time
17:31:30amiconnso it depends on how fragmented the disk is
17:31:33hardeepit's the archos recorder one that's bad
17:31:49amiconnOn Ondio, seek doesn't matter, because it's flash based

17:32:12amiconn..but reading is slow, so you still see the 2 seconds increase
17:32:48amiconnYou could try a full defragmentation of the recorder, and then check again
17:32:49hardeepi also agree with pixelma that it doesn't look all that great on ondio currently... will wait for his update
17:32:58amiconnI'd expect a vast reduction in boot time
17:33:10amiconn_her_ update...
17:33:14hardeephmmm, good point... i've been meaning to format/re-install anyways
17:34:14amiconnThis is why I still think the wps should support combined bitmaps
17:34:43hardeepdid someone release a patch for that?
17:34:51Mikachui thought you decided to use tar?
17:34:58amiconnMaking combined bitmaps mandatory will make developing a wps harder, so the loader should support both ways
17:35:22amiconnUsing tar would be another option, but that adds an extra layer to the loader

17:39:59Mikachui didn't notice any extra delay, but i already had a bmp background in my wps before
17:40:26amiconnHmm, could you compare boot time w/ default wps and boot time w/ icatcher?
17:40:47Mikachui don't see the point of that stupid spinning thing when paused though
17:41:53hardeepamiconn: ah, okay
17:42:06Mikachuwith rockbox_default, it is 7 seconds from pressing menu until i hear music in the headphones
17:42:17hardeepthe interesting thing is that the difference in time was negligible on ipod video
17:42:52Mikachuexactly the same with icatcher
17:42:54amiconnhardeep: Yeah, maybe that's less fragmented
17:43:32Mikachubut i won't use it, because 6+12x13 doesn't fit

17:45:04linuxstb(30GB ipod video)

17:47:42hardeepnow we just need to decide what it's going to be =)
17:48:00tucozI wonder, wouldn't the simplest way towards a combined bitmap support be to simply merge the bitmaps and have a header with filnemas and indices to them?
17:48:23tucozindex:length pairs
17:48:23hardeepthe wps could be the header file
17:48:33linuxstbYou mean like a .tar file? ....

17:48:52 Quit Kohlrabi (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
17:49:03Mikachutar files don't have indices at the start, they are just put between the files iirc
17:49:17tucozah, that is probably faster
17:49:28Mikachubecause they are meant to be put on tapes originally
17:49:36Mikachuwhere seeking is _extremely_ slow :)
17:49:42linuxstbEven simpler, just cat the .bmp files together in the order they appear in the .wps
17:49:57tucozwouldn't you need an index table?
17:50:01Mikachudo bmp files have headers?
17:50:03Amienif i change the id3tags using anapod .. and than rebuild tagcache in rockbox .. then it creates the old id3tag list .. while the original ipod software shows all the correct id3tags
17:50:08amiconnMikachu: Yes
17:50:15tucozbut why search for headers, if an index is created?
17:50:22Mikachuah, silly me, they must
17:50:35linuxstbI would expect the .bmp to have the length in the header - so you just read them one after the other.
17:50:36Mikachutucoz: after you've parsed the first .bmp, you know where the next one must start, ie the next byte
17:50:54tucozah, of course.
17:50:58amiconnlinuxstb: Yes, the length is stored in the header
17:51:14tucozoh, then cat them together would work just fine
17:51:20amiconnBMP headers are rather simple.
17:51:28amiconnAll numbers are little endian though
17:51:31 Join Kohlrabi [0] (
17:51:53tucozbut if someone changes the order of the bitmaps in the wps, then the combined bitmap has to be rebuilt

17:52:18tucozand KISS
17:52:23Mikachuyou could make a little script that "compiles" the wps

17:58:44Amienbut where does the tagcache take the id3 froms?
17:58:53linuxstbThe files.
17:59:29Amieni changed the id3 using anapod .. ipod software shows them correctly .. but when i let rockbox force tagcache .. the old id3's are taken
17:59:49linuxstbIn which case, anapod didn't update the tags in the files.
18:00:10Amienanapod only updates the itunesdb?
18:00:27linuxstbAlso, tagcache doesn't deal with updates very well - that may be the issue. Try deleting the tagcache files in .rockbox and rebuilding it from scratch.
18:00:42Amientried that .. takes old id3
18:01:04linuxstbSo it seems that anapod doesn't update the files.

18:01:49Amienyou are right .. just copied a mp3 to HD .. and checked id3 .. old id3 still there :(

18:23:25webguest14yes. i was trying to see if someone was listening
18:23:49webguest14when i boot it detects (or thinks it detects) usb connected and it goes to disk mode

18:24:54webguest14i did boot rockbox some times but kind of juggling with cable and keypresses so I am not sure what combination does the trick
18:25:09Paul_The_NerdWe haven't solved that one yet. It only affects a few people, and as far as I can tell it's not a Rockbox thing, though it's a little unclear what it *is* related to. If you can compile your own copy of Rockbox, disabling USB detection will make it work fine.
18:25:25webguest14yes i was thinking of it
18:25:32webguest14but i dont have the compiler
18:25:42webguest14what are you using for compiling?
18:25:44Mikachuwhat happens if you hold down menu? i think that is the key to override usb detection
18:25:55Mikachudon't hold it down from the very start because then you'd boot apple
18:26:12Paul_The_NerdMikachu: Yes, but that's the key to override it once you're in Rockbox. It's the key to boot up the retail firmware in the bootloader. There *might* be a timing that would work.
18:26:28Paul_The_NerdMikachu: But I was trying it with an actual cable and couldn't get it to let me into Rockbox.
18:26:45Paul_The_NerdDoesn't mean you can't, just that I suck at it though.
18:26:48webguest14yes i hod down menu and plug/unplug the charger cable and it does boot but it is hard to get the right sequence

18:48:57Paul_The_Nerdmirak: Before they're displayed on the screen, they have to be in the format of the framebuffer. Which means Rockbox must convert. From bitmap this is an easy and fast conversion. From jpeg it takes more processing power (and more battery) so it's better if a user does it in advance, since that only needs to be done once.

18:51:01mirakPaul_The_Nerd: I am talking about covers jpeg, like in this page
18:51:02amiconnThe point is that album art pics will need to be preconverted anyway, to avoid (non-integer) scaling on load
18:51:23amiconnWe could support jpeg, at a certain maximum size
18:51:44mirakif it's done once per track playing, or even album, that's really not significant battery wise
18:52:00Paul_The_NerdBut it's also completely unnecessary.
18:52:03amiconnThere would even be an advantage - the pic could not only be 75x75 (or whatever resolution we settle at), but also 2x, 4x or 8x that resolution
18:52:28mirakthere is an idct scaler in the jpeg wiever
18:52:34amiconnAlso, afaik embedded album art is in jpeg format
18:52:34mirakyou could use any size
18:52:37Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: We should settle so that 2x is 50x50 and 4x is 100x100

18:53:06mirakamiconn: why not ?

18:56:13Mikachucall me crazy but isn't the jpeg decoder code quite big?
18:56:20mirakPaul_The_Nerd: then rockbox should convert them itself once in a cache folder
18:56:23amiconnPaul_The_Nerd: As I already said, supporting jpeg might no be too bad an idea
18:56:38Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: It might not, but it's still debate-able.
18:56:48mirakPaul_The_Nerd: that's what konqueror nautilus or explorer are doing
18:57:04Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: As you've also said, album art with one copy per track is silly. Users could create prescaled album art at 75x75 and 100x100 and just have two images.
18:57:12amiconnYou could store the jpeg in a bigger resolution, so that the album art loader would scale down, and you could view the same image full-res with the jpeg viewer
18:57:35Nico_Pwell the user could choose between flexibility (jpg) and saving battery (bmp) if rockbox supported both
18:57:37amiconnScaling down is much easier with jpeg than with bmp
18:57:39Genre9mp3amiconn: That would be very cool! least the idct scaling
18:58:00mirakNico_P: I think that with a caching system it would be the best compromise
18:58:03Mikachuamiconn: um, don't you just have to skip every second pixel on bmp?
18:58:09amiconn..which is (of course) not available with bmp
18:58:12miraktransparent and it saves battery
18:58:25amiconnMikachu: That would make covers look *very* bad
18:58:25mirakmore than converting each time I mean
18:58:48Mikachuamiconn: dct scaling accidentally does some bilinear scaling?
18:58:57mirakThe best zoom would be by fourier transformation
18:59:13amiconnYou would need to load full res (at least in stripes with as many lines as will end up in the same line in the downscaled image), then average the pixels
18:59:40amiconnMikachu: idct downscaling does intrinsic bilinear scaling
19:00:30amiconnThis is how jpeg works
19:00:47amiconnEach image is split into 8x8 pixel blocks
19:01:15amiconnEach block is then transformed with a 2-d dct into a set of frequency coefficients
19:01:45amiconn..which are then quantized (this is the lossy part) and finally huffman compressed
19:03:15amiconnDownscaling at decoding just means to perform a partial idct, i.e. not using all coefficients, and transform into a 4x4 pixel (1/2 scale), 2x2 pixel (1/4 scale) or 1x1 pixel (1/8 scale) block
19:04:05amiconnSuccess! \o/
19:04:05tucozthat sounds pretty much like black magic
19:04:14tucozblack magic again ;-)
19:04:23amiconnNo measurable temperature difference between ISP1362 and environment
19:04:50Chamoisa commit now !!
19:04:56amiconnThe problem I solved was a silly one - and the hint towards the state machine was a good one
19:05:27mirakamiconn: well you can relatively easily scale to what you want the uncompressed image, with fourier transformation as well
19:05:31amiconn..although the problem was in another, simpler, state diagram: see page 39 of the datasheet
19:06:00mirakyou transform into coefficient matrix, then you do the inverse, with appropriate parameters.
19:06:07mirakI did it with matlab
19:06:08amiconnIt's just that you can't send the HC from USBReset directly to USBSuspend, you need an intermediate step
19:06:13mirakin univ ...
19:06:17amiconn..sending it to USBOperational first

19:23:57earHertzlinuxstb: where's that #defined?

19:24:43linuxstb_You just use it like a variable - e.g. "current_usec_tick=USEC_TIMER;"
19:25:09earHertzoh, that's easy
19:25:17linuxstb_Be aware that it will wrap relatively frequently though.
19:25:30linuxstb_I think it's about 72 minutes.
19:26:29linuxstb_It's obviously also specific to Rockbox devices with PP502x CPUs, so you'll need an alternative for the UI sim and other targets.
19:27:36earHertz72 minutes, it's a 32bit values, right?
19:28:01linuxstb_tucoz: Yes, I expect the poor ipod runtime has a lot to do with Rockbox not powering things down properly. But without hardware docs...
19:28:20linuxstb_earHertz: Yes, unsigned 32-bit.

21:23:38FebsOn the ipod, there is very little risk, because you can always restore the ipod to its original state.
21:23:40linuxstbNo-one's permanently damaged their ipod with Rockbox yet... The worst that happens is that you have to run Apple's restore program which restores your ipod to the factory condition (and wipes any files).

21:52:28linuxstbAfter PortalPlayer send you all their docs, we can start working on it...
21:52:38Paul_The_NerdBecause of course they will, right/
21:52:47linuxstbOf course - how could they refuse such an offer?
21:53:16Paul_The_NerdWell, the email's been sent, so we shall see. At least we'll finally have a formal "No" if they don't want to, and maybe they'll even say *why* they won't.
21:54:10linuxstbMy guess for "why" is so that they can continue to license their own Firmware Development Kit to companies buying their chips. I'm sure that's just as lucrative as the hardware itself.
21:54:43Paul_The_NerdMakes a lot of sense, yes.
21:57:29peturno it doesn't
21:58:01peturmost hardware vendors give you a complete devkit for free if you want to use their chips
21:58:52peturor even give a complete reference to persuade you to build youd device around their chipset
21:58:55linuxstbAnd no per-unit licensing fees?
21:59:13peturwell I don't know about portalplayer
21:59:35peturbut most microcontroller vendors just dump all on your desk ;)
21:59:42Paul_The_NerdPortalPlayer's making a very specific purpose chip though.
21:59:44linuxstbI'm just guessing that "closed docs" implies "expensive proprietory SDK"...

23:23:23mirakmicrosoft is interested in DRM's, so there is no point in putting the format open source
23:23:29mirakanyway they never did that
23:24:00merbanando you mean the container or the codecs ?
23:24:05mirakthey want to control technology and content I guess
23:24:11mirakcodecs ?
23:24:15mirakam I wrong ?
23:24:43merbananor their DRM implementation ?

23:26:01Paul_The_NerdBagder: Okay, sent again from a non-webmail account.
23:26:55merbananmirak: they have published documents for their container and the wmv3/vc-1 codec is open
23:27:30linuxstb_merbanan: Are you talking about their hi-def WMV format being playable after the summer?

23:28:28flithmhey everyone... I know this isn't rockbox related, but how the @$(*& do I tell what generation my ipod mini is?
23:28:45linuxstb_Does it have the disk capacity on the back?
23:28:46merbananyes, it's one task in google summer of code for ffmpeg
23:29:10linuxstb_merbanan: Any fixed-point AAC progress?
23:29:26flithmlinuxstb, no... although I know how much it has :)
23:29:39merbanannot that I know of, the aac task has been real quite
23:29:40flithmlinuxstb, oh wait... yes it does :)
23:29:42linuxstb_flithm: In which case it will be a 1st gen.
23:29:53linuxstb_strike that. Capacity on back means 2nd gen.
23:30:05flithmlinuxstb, ahhh it's starting to make sense why rockbox ain't booting now :)
23:30:08flithmlinuxstb, thanks
23:30:53Paul_The_NerdYay for delivery receipts, my email message has supposedly been Read already. :)
23:32:34Bagdermerbanan: me and linuxstb figured out some further mi4 details as you might've spotted
23:32:57merbananyes, I saw that
23:34:14merbananthe boot rom seems to be more interesting, it's not crypted

23:34:58mirakmerbanan: my bad then
23:35:20mirakmerbanan: only the decoder is open ?
23:36:19merbananmirak: the vc-1 SMTPE spec is open in the sense that you can buy it and do whatever with the produced code from it
23:37:27merbananbut the drafts are still free
23:38:55merbanananyway they have lots of codecs that aren't open, all wma codecs
