#rockbox log for 2006-06-17

00:00:39*amiconn doesn't even know what that is
00:00:59juxtapoh, it's like an itunes alternative
00:01:01earHertzIt's a music playre than you carry in your ass
00:01:02juxtapmuch better than itunes
00:01:13earHertzoh, ANApod. sorry
00:01:25preglowyou thought it said anuspod? :P
00:01:48*amiconn doesn't know anything about how itunes works either
00:01:49louyou dont need anapod with rockbox anymore
00:01:58juxtapyeah i know
00:02:04juxtapbut if i want to set up a dual boot thing
00:02:13louits already there
00:02:20loujust hold menu while booting
00:02:26 Join Paul_The_Nerd [0] (
00:02:28juxtapi tried that, didn't work
00:02:31louand it boots into the apple firmware
00:02:37loutry again
00:02:49lousometimes it takes me 2-3 times before it works
00:03:03juxtapi think when i installed rockbox i overwrote apple os
00:03:10scorcheit didnt
00:03:15lounot possible
00:03:58 Quit petur ("here today, gone tomorrow")
00:04:02loupress play for 5 seconds until it shuts off the ipod
00:04:07scorchewhen you are holding menu, try not to move your thumb much....i think movement on the wheel interferes with it in some way (just a guess)
00:04:11Paul_The_NerdIt is possible, but you have to do something pretty wrong.
00:04:11loupress and hold menu then
00:04:19louit should boot into the original FW
00:04:36louscorche, yeah
00:04:41loutakes time sometimes
00:04:46juxtap"loading original firmware"
00:05:15juxtapheh, what i was doing wrong: i pressed the select button THEN pressed menu
00:05:23juxtap(instead of just pressing menu)
00:05:36amiconnIf I'd do that on my mini g2, it would just reboot again
00:05:46*amiconn removed retailos completely
00:05:51juxtaper, it stalled, nothing is happening
00:06:05loumight take a while
00:06:13juxtapyeah :p

00:11:55juxtapbtw i have my stuff stored in /rokcboc/music but apple os can't read that
00:11:59juxtapthat's why i mentioned anapod
00:12:11juxtapdoesn't it need to be stored in a special way?
00:12:52juxtapthanks dionoea
00:13:00louapple os stores stuff in a special way
00:13:10lourockbox does not and can access that directory
00:13:24juxtapyeah i know
00:13:27juxtapbut that's ugly.
00:13:48louwhats ugly?
00:14:15juxtapthe way apple os stores stuff (itunes anyway)
00:14:20juxtapguess i'll try with anapod
00:14:35loui dont get it :)
00:14:41juxtapf0001.mp3, f0002.mp3, or something
00:14:46juxtapyou don't? what don't you get...
00:14:49Paul_The_NerdWell then don't use music in apple OS
00:14:50louwhy do you want to store stuff in the apple way now?
00:15:01louwhat paul said
00:15:11louwith rockbox the apple stuff is obsolete
00:15:21 Quit midkay_ ("Leaving")
00:15:21lou(except for video playback)
00:15:29Paul_The_NerdUse Apple for video if you must watch videos, but there's no reason to try to make sure your music can play in both
00:16:22juxtapdunnae, for fun
00:16:55juxtapseems my idea is outnumbered though :p
00:17:22louyour idea would use the double ammount of space
00:17:38juxtapnot necessarily
00:18:01louexcept you prefer to browse through f0001.mp3 etc :)

00:18:33louanapod stores stuff in the apple way
00:18:42louits just an itunes replacement
00:19:02mongeyis usb charging in the cvs ?
00:19:04juxtapoh, right
00:19:07mongeyfor the h300?
00:19:08juxtapyou sure?
00:19:11loui am
00:19:19juxtapi thought the f00001 thing was itunes, not apple
00:19:38louapple stores stuff in f0001.mp3 etc
00:19:46Amienrockbox can access stuff that was put on the ipod using itunes or anapod
00:19:47louthan makes a DB with the actual names

00:20:33louwell you can access the files
00:20:43loubut the names and stuff are all messed up
00:20:47Paul_The_NerdLets you browse by Metadata rather than Filename.
00:20:47louoh tagcache
00:20:58gpoois thier a way that rockbox thru some wifi dongle
00:20:59gpooand adpator
00:21:06gpooget wifi support to the ipod
00:21:10Amiengeneral -> file view -> show files −−> id3 database
00:21:11gpoofor internet radio
00:21:13loui prefer filenames
00:21:17dionoea(the only issue with tagcache is when you have tracks with missing meta data ... makes it horrible to use)
00:21:26loutagcache looks terribly messed
00:21:36dionoeait works great

00:21:37Paul_The_Nerdgpoo: While theoretically it *may* be possible, it's unlikely any time even remotely soon.
00:21:42lounot for me

00:22:27loui rather have album artist -> <subdir> album -> <subdir> files
00:22:49gpooPaul_The_Nerd my friend who is hardware modder and a mac fan, said he was working on something but need some drivers or firmware support
00:22:59gpoohe got wifi on his netwon
00:23:06gpoohe was able to get wifi to work on his newton
00:23:17Paul_The_Nerdlou: TagCache is useful because it allows you to create groups, like "All songs with the word Zelda in the title" for quick auto-playlisting.
00:23:37heffgpoo: the newton has different interface options
00:23:44loui am not arguing that paul :)
00:24:02loujust think its messed (at least the way i tried to use it)
00:24:07Paul_The_Nerdlou: I was just pointing out. I use filetree too, but some people don't seem to be aware of the options beyond simply browsing by tag. :)
00:24:14heffgpoo: it would maybe be possible by implementing USB host mode and then using a usb wifi dongle
00:24:19loupeople like me
00:24:25gpoodam it rebooted again
00:24:31gpoowhy does rock box reboot every so often
00:24:49Paul_The_Nerdlou: I don't use it, but I've never had problems with it. But then, all of my files are painstakingly tagged, none are M4A/AAC, and none have album art.
00:24:53gpooheff yes that his and my idea
00:24:56juxtapPaul_The_Nerd, so how would you create a playlist with 'all tracks from 1990' say?

00:32:39gpoobut they cost 900
00:32:49Paul_The_Nerdgpoo: Why WAV, why not FLAC?
00:32:51gpooit custom made
00:33:05gpooPaul_The_Nerd does rock box support flac
00:33:16gpoohave you see the 900 usd custom made headphones
00:33:30*Paul_The_Nerd suggests you actually read up on what Rockbox does *before* you install it on players.

00:34:47gpooone feature I will waite to improve is battery

01:55:32flithmlinuxstb, m4a?
01:55:46toxicfumePaul_The_Nerd: not as far as i could see, really.
01:55:56Mikachuit's in IpodFAQ
01:56:08linuxstbflithm: Even .m4a is vague... I'm guessing you mean AAC, and yes, Rockbox just about plays it.
01:56:24flithmlinuxstb, just about? :)
01:56:30Paul_The_Nerdtoxicfume: Apparently it's in at least the FAQ, as I just verified it's there.
01:56:37 Part baobab68
01:57:34linuxstbflithm: Yes. :) There is an AAC decoder, but it's not that good. It works for low bitrates (128kbps and maybe slightly higher) on the ipod, but can't decode in realtime on the iriver/iaudio players.
01:57:56*flithm nods
01:58:36linuxstbWe're waiting for either the ffmpeg project to perform another miracle and implement their own AAC decoder or for someone to work on optimising the one we've got.
01:59:05flithmcommercial players should really start shipping with rockbox... personally I love the ipod hardware but right from the first time it booted up I was astounded at how crappy its OS is given how popular it is
02:00:15toxicfumeit's not crappy IMO, the interface is intuitive and simple and just works for majority of the people who use it
02:00:44Paul_The_NerdIt was quite counterintuitive to me.
02:01:00Paul_The_NerdI kept trying to press the button labelled "Menu" with the expectation that it would bring me to a Menu from most screens.
02:01:39flithmnah it's total crap. the eq is shite, the way songs are organized is idiotic... give me a directory structure anyday... everything about it is weak. It's in no way made for people who like music −− which is what portable music players are all about.
02:01:59Paul_The_NerdNaah, iPod's aren't about people who like music.
02:02:04toxicfumenot here, once you figure out that center button is select, and menu goes back, it's really simple to navigate around
02:02:11Paul_The_NerdThey're about people who install huge subwoofers in their car and think it improves the way music sounds
02:02:24flithmyeah I suppose you're right
02:02:48Paul_The_Nerdtoxicfume: Yes, but *why* does menu go back? Why not the key labelled "Left" since that's back considering the direction that menus point is to the right?
02:03:08Paul_The_NerdYou shouldn't have to figure out that keys don't do what their labels say in the STOCK firmware.
02:03:14toxicfumelets not get into philosophy here, but really for me i had no trouble getting used to it.
02:03:43 Quit obo ("bye")
02:03:53flithmat the very least a music player should have a fully tweakable EQ... I simply can't imagine releasing a music player without one, yet sure enough... apple did it and got away with it
02:04:13Paul_The_NerdI thought the definition of "Intuitive" pretty much implied that a user could pick it up and have things do what they expect without having to learn quirks...
02:04:23toxicfumeflithm: not everyone will mess about with a full EQ, that's useless for most people who only want to listen to their music.
02:04:28Paul_The_Nerdflithm: There are very few MP3 players that DO have one.
02:05:00toxicfumePaul_The_Nerd: I picked it up really quickly.
02:05:12flithmReally? that's madness!
02:05:14toxicfumenot trying to blow my horns but yes
02:05:25Paul_The_Nerdtoxicfume: To the contrary, a non-customizable one is useless for people who actually want to use it properly (lessen the effects of a setup that in some manner distorts their audio). And "Picked it up really quickly" is different from "Intuitive." Easy to learn is still by definition of the word intuitive, not intuitive, simply easy to learn.
02:05:51Paul_The_NerdI'll give Apple that their interface is simple, and really easy to learn.
02:06:07Paul_The_NerdBut at BEST it's counterintuitive since many things do the opposite of what one would expect from button labels.
02:06:19toxicfumewell, the Apple designed the player not for audiophiles who want to mess about with specific EQ settings
02:06:20Paul_The_NerdWe're talking definitions here, not your seeming assumption that "intuitive" means the same as "easy"
02:06:42 Quit PaulJam (".")
02:07:10Paul_The_Nerdtoxicfume: Then why have EQ settings at all. All the presets just distort the public's conception of what an EQ really is.
02:07:36scorcheintuitive is not asking someone what to hit to go back, then saying "oh. that was easy"
02:08:00Paul_The_Nerdscorche: Exactly, intuitive is pressing the first button that comes to mind when thinking "back" and having it work.
02:08:16Paul_The_Nerdscorche: Unfortunately, my thought was "If deeper is right, back is left"
02:08:19 Quit mirak (Remote closed the connection)
02:08:32flithmI had a friend with an ipod who didn't know you could turn it off by holding pause, or hit select and then rotate to seek inside a track for a year after he'd has his :)
02:08:42scorchethat too
02:09:01scorchei know many people that though how they turned their players off was to switch the hold on and wait
02:09:03toxicfumei dont get it, most people who i know who have ipods know how to navigate right away. Maybe it's not intuitive as in being clear with the symbols and words on the interface
02:09:28Paul_The_Nerdtoxicfume: So the first button they press to go back is always Menu, the first time they use it, without asking?
02:09:47scorchewithout seeing it be used before?
02:10:04toxicfumeofcourse by "right away" i meant the first few uses. Lol, such nitpicking on my words i better give up now.
02:10:21Paul_The_NerdWell, you used "Intuitive"
02:10:25Paul_The_NerdWhich has a very specific meaning
02:10:27Paul_The_NerdWhich you seem to have missed.
02:10:28toxicfumeI'm sprry.
02:10:43Paul_The_NerdBesides, Apple MADE the iPod
02:10:47toxicfumei beg for your forgiveness?
02:10:52Paul_The_NerdWhy did they write "Menu" on the button, if that's not what it's for?
02:11:27Paul_The_NerdBelieve it or not, they actually got to pick what was written on the player AND what the buttons do.
02:11:34*scorche exits the conversation just as quickly and seamlessly as he came into it
02:11:45toxicfumewell, they've outsold every other player, they have done something right.

02:12:21*Paul_The_Nerd points at VHS.
02:12:38toxicfumeand i really dont think that deeply about what "Menu" means and what it's supposed to do and what the right symbol means, I press it, see what it does, and remember it.
02:13:03Paul_The_Nerdtoxicfume: By that definition any interface is fine, since it's all trial and error. Why label buttons at all?
02:13:16flithmthis is so awesome

02:13:31toxicfumeand i understand the ipod that way
02:13:37Paul_The_NerdHow does it "deal with menus"?
02:13:42toxicfumeif I press Menu, it's going to take me to the top level Menu
02:13:49Paul_The_NerdBut it doesn't.
02:13:51Paul_The_NerdIt goes back one level.
02:13:57toxicfumeand if i hold it, it'll take me to the Main menu
02:14:06toxicfumesorry top level = one level above the current position.

02:14:30 Quit tongas (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
02:14:51Paul_The_NerdBut from the Song list, hitting Menu takes you to the Album list, rather than any Menu.
02:14:51toxicfumethere it is, it deals with menus
02:15:05toxicfumeAlbum list is the Menu
02:15:14Paul_The_NerdNo, it's a list of Albums
02:15:24Paul_The_NerdOtherwise the only place that ISN'T a menu is the While Playing Screen, and the games.
02:15:33toxicfumei dont know, replacing that word with Menu works for me
02:15:47Paul_The_NerdSo, it works because you've chosen to redefine what things are until it does.
02:15:54Paul_The_NerdFair enough
02:15:56toxicfumewow, the interface must have been way too confusing the first time you sed it
02:16:08Paul_The_NerdNo, I had no problems using it.
02:16:18Paul_The_NerdI just said it isn't intuitive. There's a difference.
02:16:57Paul_The_NerdThere are very few truly intuitive interfaces. I think a one-button mouse in a black and white paint program is about as close as you can get.
02:17:06toxicfumewell, it seems logical enough to me. But i guess maybe i dont have the perfect definition for the word intuitive
02:17:42toxicfumewell but the interface just works, it's really simple and logical i think.
02:17:59toxicfumeofcourse no one would get it on the first go
02:18:23Paul_The_NerdIt took me about 15 seconds to have a pretty firm grasp on it.
02:18:34scorchetoxicfume: you are on the edge again with the word "logical" instead of intuitive
02:18:37Paul_The_NerdAnd about 5 more to think "Man, that's pretty stupid. Menu should open up a menu, and left and right should actually go left and right."
02:18:51Paul_The_NerdLogical and Intuitive are almost opposite concepts.
02:19:12xoderPaul_The_Nerd: there are many ways to do an "intuitive" interface. The problem is that they are all misrepresenting themselves. There is no Intuitive Interface. If you're lucky, you can base your interface off of someone else's and then its intuitive to those former users. If you're lucky, you can make an interface intuitive to a certain subgroup of people.
02:19:14Paul_The_NerdLogical relating to reasoning, and Intuitive meaning that it requires no reasoning whatsoever, instead springing from instinct and intuition.
02:19:17flithmmy ipod has never sounded so good. Now if only I could fit a subwoofer into its case somehow
02:19:28scorchePaul_The_Nerd: however, it isnt logical that menu wouldnt take you to the menu
02:19:51toxicfumea menu is a list of items for me
02:20:01Paul_The_Nerdxoder: Yup, as I said there aren't any *truly* intuitive interfaces really. That's why Rockbox is nice. By definition it's mostly intuitive to previous Rockbox users when they switch devices.
02:20:26xoderYay! Agreement!
02:20:54Paul_The_Nerdtoxicfume: So, "Explorer" shows you a menu of your drive?
02:21:38toxicfumeif it was on another device, and they used the term menu, i would understand it
02:23:38Paul_The_NerdUnderstanding it is completely different from expecting it.
02:23:51toxicfumeI dont expect much anyways :P
02:24:14Paul_The_NerdThe whole idea of intuitive is "does what the user is most likely to expect" for interfaces. At least, in general
02:24:26Paul_The_NerdThat's why my point was that the Menu button doesn't do what I'd expect it to.
02:24:47Paul_The_NerdI've already said that the interface is easy to use, and simple.
02:24:57 Quit jd_ ()
02:25:07Paul_The_NerdSo clearly the only point we have left to disagree on is intuitiveness. Which you gave up on, but then for some reason kept responding and arguing.
02:25:15toxicfumewell the only thing that i remember thinknig when i saw the Menu button for the first time was that this button has something to do with Menus, and the definition worked for me, ofcourse it may not work for everyone else.
02:25:53Paul_The_Nerd"Something to do with Menus"
02:25:57Paul_The_NerdWonderfully vague.
02:26:13*Paul_The_Nerd is going to make a remote with 10 buttons each labelled "Channel Number"
02:26:32toxicfumeyeah, i didn't thnik anything in specific
02:26:48toxicfumeMenu = this button has to deal with menus, that's it.
02:26:53 Quit flithm ("Leaving")
02:26:57toxicfumeand then i started using it
02:27:11Paul_The_NerdOn *most* devices, the menu button calls up the menu.
02:27:16toxicfumeand whenever i pressed it, it would take me to a menu one level above the current position. It worked for me.

02:30:54pixelmaGenre9mp3: thanks for the work ;)
02:30:56Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: I got a read receipt confirmation hours ago, but that doesn't necessarily mean much.
02:31:18toxicfumethey tend to be really specific and nitpicky about words and definitions people say. It's not an insult btw, just an observation.
02:31:27Genre9mp3After 5 hours the battery is at 81% which is more than expected! :)
02:31:37Genre9mp3hi pixelma

02:34:14Paul_The_NerdI like to pretend that the lack of response despite the read receipt means that it's actually gone somewhere for discussion, since I didn't just receive an outright "no"
02:34:35Paul_The_Nerdtoxicfume: TagCache doesn't care if the folder's hidden or not, I believe
02:35:01Genre9mp3At a previous battery bench I made some time ago, the battery went to 81% after 2 hours and 15 mins...Now it went to that level after 5 hours!!!
02:35:14Paul_The_NerdSo, about twice as long
02:35:20Paul_The_NerdPretty much what is expected, right?
02:35:26Genre9mp3more than twice I could say
02:35:31Paul_The_NerdA wee bit more
02:35:53Paul_The_Nerd2:15 * 2 == 4:30, you said ~5 hours, fairly close.
02:36:08amiconnlinuxstb: Hmm, it seems we could save some energy on PP5022:
02:36:55amiconn"...uses ultra-low 1.2V core supply voltage and *system enabled dynamic voltage scaling*"
02:37:10amiconnNow if we only knew how to control it...
02:37:16toxicfumeokay, i think im' conditioned to be comfortable with apples interface, because now i'm finding rockbox confusing
02:38:45Genre9mp3Paul_The_Nerd: I would say it's about 120% more
02:39:29Paul_The_NerdGenre9mp3: It's possible. We'll see on the full benchmark, 'eh ;)
02:39:42Paul_The_NerdEither way, it'll make you guys happy
02:39:42toxicfumePaul_The_Nerd: in the Rockbox File browser I dont see the iPod_Control folder, is it because it's hidden?

02:48:56Paul_The_NerdNobody's done it.
02:49:10xoderI've been looking at the jpeg plugin viewer, and the decoding is pretty easily seperated from the UI
02:49:17Paul_The_NerdIt'd be neat if someone also hooked up BMP display as well
02:49:37Paul_The_NerdRight now BMPs have no default action, but are supported because you can set proper resolution ones as backdrops. It'd be nice if you could view all the rest of 'em. ;)
02:49:58xoderso, then could the display be handled by a system call?
02:50:04xoder(for BMP)
02:50:10Paul_The_NerdI really don't know.

02:50:52earHertzI ewas going to switch to linux, but I heard it's for hippies and communists
02:51:07midkayPaul_The_Nerd, i also suggested this ('since the bmp display code is already in the core, why don't we have a viewer?')..
02:51:22midkaythe response was that we should probably wait and turn the jpg plugin into an image viewer supporting multiple formats or so..
02:51:33xoderThe biggest concerns for me about PNG are: whether I can just drop the CRCs (This is an embedded system, and we shouldn't waste time), how to best impliment COMPRESS, and the proper color decimation for 24bit PNGs (as well as the proper mapping for palletted ones)
02:52:09Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Well, I was just suggestiong implementing BMP viewing in the Jpeg viewer... so... :-P
02:52:10xodermidkay: I disagree about making the jpeg viewer multiformat. It uses quite a few JPEG-specific rendering tricks
02:52:29midkayi don't necessarily mean converting the jpeg viewer itself, sorry.. i just mean a general image viewer.
02:52:40Paul_The_NerdThe plugin itself should be imageview.rock
02:52:40midkayhaving different viewers entirely for jpg, bmp, png, etc... is not a good idea.
02:52:46midkayright, like that.
02:52:47Paul_The_NerdWith the UI code separate from the format-specific portions
02:53:06amiconnmidkay: (1) Why? (2) On archos it might be necessary to have separate viewers
02:53:19Paul_The_Nerdxoder: Look at the existing Rockbox code for 24-bit bitmaps and you can probably use their existing conversions for the colors.
02:53:22midkayamiconn, haha, it was in fact you who suggested this, if memory serves me right..
02:53:25earHertzmidkay: the GUI shoould be the same. Teh implemtation should be differnt. The gui should call a set of rendring functins.

02:54:01earHertzmake a common viewer gui, and establish a siomple AI for rendering functuions
02:54:10earHertzPaul_The_Nerd: yeah, more or less
02:54:10xoderthe JPEG viewer uses several shortcuts that only work in YUV space. PNG uses RGB space
02:54:22midkaysigh.. i'll slip on out of this discussion..
02:54:23xoder(especially for monochrome or 2-bit displays)
02:54:29amiconnAbove all, the JPEG viewer uses idct scaling
02:54:44amiconnThe colour space is much less of a problem
02:54:45xoderwhich simply wouldn't work for any other format

02:55:48xoderamiconn: on second thought, you're right about the colorspace thing
02:56:28xoderI'd also be concerned that since we can't use something like idct scaling, we'd have to render the whole image to memory and then zoom/decimate, which would suck memory hardcore
02:57:39amiconnNot necessarily
02:57:56amiconnWe could load stripes into a buffer and scale down

04:21:25midkayhonestly, i'm not familiar with it, but it wasn't hard for me to figure out as far as adding an entry.. just look around and try to figure it out..
04:21:36midkaya good tactic would be to look at a menu that's similar to what you want to add.
04:22:07midkaye.g. "System".. find the lang id (e.g. LANG_SYSTEM).. search settings_menu.c for it.. see where it's referenced, and add yours in all those places.

05:38:18midkayi think this is a rather rare but known problem with a few units, where USB detection acts weird.

05:39:52midkaydid you plug it in afterwards? what's the icon say? does it show a battery with a charge icon?
05:39:56midkaybolt of lightning i think.
05:40:07spifwandi did it while it was plugged into the wall
05:40:15spifwandand now its got a check mark with "Safe to disconnect"
05:40:22spifwandand the little battery at the top i believe is blinking
05:40:34spifwandrather its animating
05:40:44midkayyeah, that sounds right..
05:40:51spifwandsounds perfect :)
05:40:54midkaymaybe it will fix itself if you let it charge for a while and try it again. :)

05:41:01midkaythe first one.
05:41:03spifwandbut most likely man
05:41:41spifwandyeah it was rebooting i believe cuz it was totally out of a charge i left it playing to drain my bluetooth headphones
05:41:55spifwandwhich btw are awesome
05:42:00midkayah.. yeah, possible.
05:42:04midkaycool. :)
05:42:05dongslol bluetooth
05:42:15dongsdoes bluetooth even have enough bandwidht to send raw 44khz pcm?
05:42:15midkaybtw, also check your connection to your PC from the cable..
05:42:28dongslast i checked bluetooth was like 115kbit

05:43:16dongsyeah, but what kinda shit quality do you get out of 115kbit link
05:43:17dongsfor audio
05:43:25midkaydongs, how about googling..
05:43:29spifwandi don't know much about bluetooth transmission rates, the ones i have are made by jensen
05:43:47spifwandthe logitech ones don't fit the 5g

05:46:31spifwandtotally worth it to stunt
05:46:52midkays'pose so :)
05:47:02spifwandand i'm poor so i stunt as much as possible with as little as possible
05:47:29midkayhaha. btw, i noticed you're using a wall charger.
05:47:31midkaythat may well be the problem.
05:47:45midkayin fact i'm sure it is.
05:47:45dongsData Rate: 1 Mbps
05:47:55spifwandrockbox don't charge with wall?
05:47:55dongswow, so they're NOT sending raw 44khz pcm
05:48:02 Join Paul_The_Ner1 [0] (
05:48:08dongswhat a waste, i bet audiophiles are puking right now
05:48:21midkayspifwand, rockbox can't detect the difference between USB or charger since they both use the same port.
05:48:37midkayand so it assumes USB, reboots to disk mode, and then disk mode says "hey, this ain't usb.. let's reboot back to rockbox"..
05:48:38midkayand so on.
05:48:51spifwandmakes sense
05:48:59midkayforcing disk mode is the best option for charging from wall.. which is how i told you.. select+play on boot.
05:49:09midkaythat way it won't automatically reboot after it decides it's not USB.
05:49:15spifwandsounds good, i'll remember that
05:49:24 Part Paul_The_Ner1
05:49:30spifwandso now that and video are the only quirks that irk me

05:49:46midkaydon't expect it soon.. :)
05:49:49spifwandpssh im not
05:50:05midkayapple's firmware plays really nice video anyways, i'm not holding my breath at all..
05:50:26spifwandyeah i actually put ipod defualt firmware back on it cuz im like "oh well rockbox can't play videos"
05:50:33spifwandbut then... i never loaded any videos on it for 2 months
05:50:37midkayyou know you can dual-boot, right?
05:50:47midkaywith rockbox installed you can still access the default firmware.
05:50:53spifwandyeah but i already changed the layout of my songs
05:51:10spifwandthey're all in subfolders made with mediamonkey
05:51:21midkayah, but if you ever wanted videos, you could do that..
05:51:31spifwandyeah good point
05:51:59spifwandi'll dual boot next time i update it, i gotta put the theme tweaks on it too
05:52:06spifwandafter i figure out how to do that

05:53:29spifwandi'd need to partition somthing?
05:53:43midkayjust power off, and to get into the default firmware, instead of pressing menu to turn on, just hold it down until you see "booting default firmware"..

08:42:34Rekoilwill rockbox feature video for compatible players ?... i mean when it is done
08:42:57aliaskWhen it's done? :)
08:43:19Rekoilbecause if it is to be considered an alternative it needs all possible features
08:43:30aliaskA few people have given video a shot, but so far I don't think it's been developed to a point where you could actually watch anything.
08:43:37Rekoilwell first release thats not considered "developers only"
08:43:49aliaskIt's not planned yet.
08:43:57Rekoilit has for iPL but only uncompressed video
08:44:39Rekoiland those take up a humongous amount of space
08:44:48aliaskAll it takes is someone with enough motivation (and the neccessary skills) to start work on it. At the moment nobody has really stepped up.

08:47:46Jungti1234'Rudimentary driver for the ISP1362 USB on-the-go controller. For now it just sends the chip to sleep'
08:47:48Jungti1234what's mean?
08:48:38aliaskIt means that amiconn was able to access the USB-OTG chip and tell it to go to sleep, so it uses less power.
08:48:49aliaskWhich means more battery :)
08:49:52aliaskSo for H300 maybe we get 15 (?) hours now.
08:50:30Rekoilwhat about iPod ? more batt. too ? or is it a different driver
08:50:46Jungti1234amiconn sent to sleep it approaching to USB-OTG chip, and does its battery time become much so?
08:51:13aliaskThe ISP1362 chip isn't in the iPod's, so it wasn't taking up any power. (Which means no change for iPod)
08:51:31Jungti1234Does its meaning guess right?
08:51:57aliaskJungti1234: Yes
08:52:13Jungti1234ok, Thanks
08:52:29Jungti1234Then, can it use later?
08:52:50aliaskUSB-OTG? Not yet.
08:53:37Jungti1234He's accessed to it.
08:54:43aliaskYes, but we havn't coded for the chip to access other USB devices yet. It just goes to sleep.
08:56:00Jungti1234ah. :) ok
08:58:38chendo1what's the faster ATA timings do?
08:59:16aliaskI think it gives the harddrive reading a slight speed boost.
08:59:37Jungti1234Now, can WPS make to be different in each device?
08:59:51Jungti1234'Added support for multiple rwps for same theme for different devices'
09:01:15Jungti1234and, 'Also updated wpsbuild to support different fonts for same theme depending on target screen.'
09:01:18Jungti1234what's mean?
09:02:06aliaskI don't know, actually... :)
09:03:27Jungti1234Can it use other font in theme?
09:03:43dongsyou can specify a font
09:03:45Jungti1234Various fonts
09:03:50dongsbut you cant use multiple fonts
09:03:56Jungti1234what's mean
09:04:03dongs(another misengineering on the developers part)
09:04:11dongsbcause htey're still trying to support devices with 100x100 monocrhome screens
09:04:46dongsyour theme can say: use font xxx
09:04:51scorchedongs: why dont you just leave?

09:08:12scorchedongs: one does not have to be in IRC to be of use...for all you know, he could be a core dev that simply doesnt come into irc
09:08:32dongscould would
09:08:34dongsbut is he?
09:08:41aliaskAnd anyway, what do you have against rockbox?
09:08:44scorcheno....but does that matter?
09:08:48dongsits great
09:09:06aliaskNo I'm not. I have submitted a few patches, and been hanging around for about two years.
09:09:12scorchehe may have not been in here that long, but he has been of MUCH more use in here than you have been your whole time
09:09:26dongsJungti1234: why are these people so angry.
09:10:09scorchedongs: cause you do nothing but announce to the channel how the devs are horrible, do things the wrong way...and lets not forget the utter nonsense that you spew
09:10:57*ashridah notes his first memory of dongs is him being all indignant about his settings getting wiped by a bump in the config version in rockbox.
09:11:13Jungti1234I don't speak English, situation isn't grasped....
09:11:32ashridahnevermind the fact that from a purely functional stand point, i've seen commercial firmware do the exact same thing
09:11:42scorcheJungti1234: it is not important...just trying to take care of someone that causes trouble =)
09:11:43ashridahexcept flashing the firmware isn't as common there, so you simply dont' care.
09:11:44aliaskJungti1234: Don't worry, it's not important talk. Dongs is stupid.
09:12:04dongsashridah: what, if you thought i was upset about my settings getting wiped, you need to ease off irc
09:12:34scorcheashridah: you havent seen him at his "high" points
09:12:51ashridahdongs: i said 'indignant', that's not really the same as upset, but a bit further than irritated. but that said, if you were't upset, why did you start paying out on the developers
09:12:58ashridahscorche: i've seen enough
09:13:18ashridahlike him ragging on linux based on some fonts from a gnome screenshot (which was actually from freebsd) for instance.
09:13:26scorcheashridah: i've seen too much =)
09:13:31dongslike that matters
09:13:48Jungti1234stop fight
09:13:50scorcheashridah: please dont get him started on linux... =P
09:14:07ashridahdongs: apparently it does, since everyone in here thinks you're overly negative, and have stopped listenign to your GOOD suggestions.
09:14:08dongsJungti1234: ya, they need to STOP_ABUSE
09:14:10Jungti1234'Added support for multiple rwps for same theme for different devices', 'Also updated wpsbuild to support different fonts for same theme depending on target screen.'

09:14:20Jungti1234I want to know its meaning only.
09:14:20dongsashridah: what good suggestions?
09:14:21scorcheJungti1234: we are trying....and trying to stop future fights (doubt that will happen though)

09:14:54dongsashridah: last time i suggested compiling rockbox with a real compiler, i was laughed at
09:14:54Jungti1234I don't know his mistake.
09:15:17dongsashridah: last time i suggested making all the hardware platforms separate instead a mess of #ifdefs in one file, etc etc.
09:15:19ashridahdongs: just how many free cross compilers do you know of, out of interest?
09:15:27dongsashridah: i said real, not free.
09:15:32scorchedongs: cause that compiler costs an exorbant amount of money
09:16:19dongsscorche: giving those who own it a choice would be nice.
09:16:35dongsbut using a shitload of (questionable) GNU extensions and GNU asm makes it rather difficult

09:18:02scorcheJungti1234: basically, it promotes better interoperability between the different units

09:33:45Paul_The_NerdRekoil: The link that says "feature Requests" on the main page.
09:33:48dongsthe specs are on ipodlunix website
09:33:51Rekoildunno if its model specific
09:33:52amiconnmidkay: I started it ~1.5 hours after commit. Needed to charge the unit completely first
09:33:53dongsyou can find them
09:34:00Paul_The_NerdWe clock it to 75, but they range from 80 to I think 100 in the minis?
09:34:00RekoilPaul_The_Nerd: righto
09:34:21daurnimatoris the video ipod higher?
09:34:21thePianoMandaurnimator: it's generally clocked back to 30mhz in idle (under RB)
09:34:23scorchedaurnimator: 80
09:34:30Rekoilso why do we clock them to 75 if they can do more
09:34:32midkayamiconn, right. cool. :)
09:34:36amiconnmidkay: Btw, without the fix, the test would have ended ~1.5 hours ago...
09:34:41dongsRekoil: because the battery life already sucks
09:34:47Rekoiloh yeah
09:34:59midkaygreat to hear.. do you have any way to see the percent right now? or see how full the battery appears?
09:35:06amiconnPaul_The_Nerd: Only the PP5022 (mini g2) is specced up to 100MHz
09:35:20amiconnmini g1 uses PP5020 (80MHz)
09:35:25Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: I was close. :-P
09:35:32Rekoilhow come mini 2g runs faster than the video lol
09:35:49Paul_The_NerdRekoil: Because Apple didn't need it to run faster?
09:35:51midkaydongs, although your mostly-random guesses might occasionally happen to be nearly correct, they aren't generally too useful to people looking for actual information.. we wouldn't clock the cpu down 5mhz because "battery life sucks".
09:36:01scorcheRekoil: cause it uses a faster processor =) PP5022 vs pp5021
09:36:05amiconnProbably because the PP5022 was deemed too expensive, and apple didn't need the extra power
09:36:07Rekoilyeah that kinda makes sense

09:38:13dongslast i heard one of the arm cores on nano was turned off to save battery.
09:38:20scorchedaurnimator: nano uses the same as video indeed
09:38:22midkaydongs, honestly, i think it's because we're being very general about iPod models' cpu. we certainly wouldn't reduce the clock by 5mhz when we're already at 75..
09:38:33daurnimatorand thats 80mhz?
09:38:37 Join yeahx [0] (
09:38:43midkayi'm not entirely sure, but as you might notice i don't try to randomly guess as if i know what i'm talking about.
09:38:51scorchedaurnimator: correct
09:38:58Paul_The_NerdApparently the PP5022 claims 200mips, and so does the PP5024, so I wonder if it's safe to assume for the moment that it also is 100mhz.
09:39:05yeahxhow goes it?
09:39:25Paul_The_Nerddongs: Because there's no good reason to run it at full speed and risk generating too much heat?
09:39:45yeahxI haven't updated rockbox on my nano for a few months now, wouldnt I notice a change if I updated soon?
09:40:02dongsthey're not doing anything to ipods
09:40:07dongsjust fixing bugs on all platforms.
09:40:26yeahxI was using it exclusively for a while
09:40:31scorcheyeahx: please ignore anything dongs says
09:40:31Paul_The_NerdThat statement doesn't make sense. Wouldn't "all platforms" imply iPods?
09:40:44dongsyeahx: why "was"?
09:40:45midkayhonestly.. that should be set as the channel topic. :)
09:40:59scorcheno kidding.
09:41:06scorchealong with no support of vid =P
09:41:16amiconnThe 75MHz were probably chosen for 2 reasons: (1) ipl uses the same value afaik. (2) The pll setup is done in a way that we can increase / decrease in 3 MHz steps
09:41:39yeahxdunno, just decided to switch back
09:41:57yeahxand wait until it matured a little longer
09:42:09amiconn[09:39:33] <dongs> they're not doing anything to ipods
09:42:09amiconn[09:39:38] <dongs> just fixing bugs on all platforms.
09:42:12yeahxI noticed the battery meter was at least trying to work though

09:42:32midkaydoes he ever not? *sighs*
09:42:34scorcheamiconn: nothing new =)
09:42:42yeahxI think he meant nothing but bug fixes, which would mean i wouldnt notice much of a change
09:42:52thePianoManI think what dongs was trying to say is that there are no new features being added, they're just bugfixing in the lead up to the 3.0 release.
09:42:53dongsamiconn: what now? ive been told more than once that 3.0 has nothign to do with ipods
09:43:09dongsas its still an 'unsupported' target.
09:43:12dongsand wont be so until end of htis year
09:43:18midkaythat's not entirely true.. for example the new star/sokoban bitmaps. those affected ipods..
09:43:26scorchehowever, he said "a few months"
09:43:28thePianoMansome bugs will be fixed in iPods though... if they're cross-platform bugs
09:43:35dongsgee, well, i kinda doubt thats what yeahx was looking for
09:43:39amiconnNo, and? The higher-level code is more or less the same for all targets
09:44:06midkaydongs, gee, well, it might be nice to note that "ipods aren't being touched at all for 3.0" is not true.
09:44:42amiconne.g. fixing bugs in the playback engine / playlist handling / tagcache / .... affects all platforms

10:10:21midgey34amiconn: just checking in before sleeping. the h320 is at 4% and has been running for about 13.5 hours
10:10:34midgey34if I remember my start time correctly
10:10:41amiconnWhat format?
10:10:48amiconnmusic format I mean...
10:10:50midgey34mp3 192 kbps cbr
10:11:27amiconnHmm. I would expect more... What runtime did you get before?
10:11:41midgey34eh about 8 hours or so
10:11:52midgey34I'm running the iCatcher wps
10:11:59midgey34so lots of bitmaps
10:12:11JdGordondidnt we decide the wps made no difference?
10:12:27midgey34I may have missed that, I've been inactive for a while
10:12:52amiconnRuntime will of course depend on things like backlight etc. My runtime test just plays the same album (192kbps mp3) in 'repeat all' mode. No backlight involved, and logging with battery_bench
10:12:54Paul_The_NerdI think it was "little difference"
10:13:06pixelmamaybe because iCatcher updates a lot for animation?
10:13:29amiconnI use a wps comparable to the default
10:13:33midgey34oh, and I have disk poweroff set to no
10:13:45midgey34but otherwise same test you described
10:14:05*amiconn has disk poweroff always enabled on units where it's supported
10:14:44midgey34I forgot to change the setting before starting the test
10:15:06midgey34all my settings were lost since I havent updating in a while
10:15:11hardeepdirectory cache/tag cache in ram will also affect battery life
10:16:07Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: On my H100, disk poweroff seems to let the buffer empty with flacs with the default 5s anti-skip buffer.
10:16:09amiconnWe need to decide whether it's better to keep the 'disk poweroff' option and just make it enabled by default, or remove the option altogether

10:16:45amiconnPaul_The_Nerd: That's a known bug in the swcodec playback engine. It doesn't calculate buffer margins as it's supposed to be
10:16:59 Join petur [0] (n=petur@rockbox/developer/petur)
10:17:20amiconnThis bug exists since the swcodec playback engine was committed to cvs...
10:17:27Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: Yeah, that's kinda what I figured. 15 seconds resolves it for flacs anyway.
10:17:33Paul_The_NerdOr at least, my flacs
10:18:32amiconnThe swcodec playback engine doesn't use the setting as an extra margin (as it's suppposed to be), but directly uses it as the margin
10:19:21amiconnOn hwcodec, the engine monitors disk spinup time (using a safe default when the value is not yet availabe), and calculates the buffer margin from that and the track's bitrate
10:20:09chendospeaking of disk poweroff... that powers off the disk instead of spinning down yeah?
10:20:09amiconnThe anti-skip buffer setting starts from zero on archos, and I never needed a different value than zero
10:20:35Paul_The_NerdYeah, mine's set to 1 second and I've noticed no concerns.
10:20:48Paul_The_NerdIs there some reason the Bass and Treble default to 6 instead of 0?
10:20:51amiconnIt's purely extra buffer, for when you're e.g. jogging with the box and the harddisk can't read due to heavy shaking
10:20:56Paul_The_Nerd0 seconds, not 1 second.
10:21:32amiconnThe sound defaults are historic, and later we didn't want to change them.
10:22:21amiconnIirc Linus or Bagder said that in the beginning users complained that rockbox sounds "thin" compared to archos
10:22:33amiconnThat was even before I joined...
10:22:43Paul_The_NerdMy very first thought was "Hmm.... this doesn't sound right" and found the settings were up.
10:22:59amiconnOn player, treble and bass default are +7 dB
10:24:03*Paul_The_Nerd shrugs
10:24:19*amiconn actually uses roughly those values with earphones
10:24:57Paul_The_NerdOn mine it sounded too bass heavy.
10:25:12Paul_The_NerdBut I think the PX100s have a little more bass to them than I'm sure I like
10:25:19amiconnSince the player's MAS doesn't have loudness, it actually makes sense to boost treble & bass somewhat
10:25:41Paul_The_NerdAh least when you're listening at volumes like me

10:27:51amiconnSame goes for all other targets except archos recorders and Ondios (their MAS chips do have loudness)
10:28:44amiconnI'm usually listening at -50..-30 dB with earphones
10:29:24Paul_The_NerdIf I get below about -45 or -50 my headphones start sounding thin. Loudness will help with that?

10:52:30*scorche finally finds a moment to go to bed
10:53:04amiconnhardeep: There are 2 bugs in the bookmarking code which most probably are related. (1) Bookmarking doesn't work when starting a playlist by choosing Playlist->Insert (or Insert Shuffled) on a folder. (2) Bookmarking also doesn't work with tagcache
10:53:29amiconnIt does work fine when starting a playlist by choosing a track from within a folder, or loading an .m3u
10:53:44hardeepamiconn: both are because bookmarking doesn't work with dynamically created playlists
10:54:09*JdGordon thinks the playlist code is overly complicated, prob coz /me doesnt undertsnad it :p
10:54:15 Part daurnimator
10:54:17hardeepwe need to change the bookmark format to include the .playlist_control file to handle them

10:59:50hardeepnah, cue support is different
10:59:57Jungti1234Is 1 theme included to build setting to device?
11:00:06Paul_The_NerdWhy are bookmarks associated with a playlist, rather than a specific file?
11:00:30thePianoManJungti1234: before, one theme was only for one device; now, one theme can be for many devices
11:00:43hardeepJdGordon: bookmarking a dynamic playlist has no relation to cue support
11:00:48thePianoManJungti1234: there is a theme included with the download I think
11:00:50Jungti1234what's mean..
11:01:04thePianoManthe change is mainly for theme creators
11:01:13JdGordonhardeep: it does.. a bookmark is just a position in a audio file.. a cue is just a list of positions in a audio file.. same thing
11:01:32Jungti1234I mean..
11:01:44hardeepPaul_The_Nerd: no real reason... i'd actually like to see both options available
11:02:41Jungti1234A person who create theme makes correct WPS to devices that is many.
11:02:53amiconnCurrently, bookmarks resemble resume points. I actually like it that way
11:02:58hardeepJdGordon: sure, for loading an individual track. But I'm assuming you're referring to full cue support without our playlist framework
11:03:28Jungti1234To each build, is correct theme included to it?
11:03:29hardeepamiconn: yeah, i like bookmarking playlists... but being able to bookmark individual tracks would also be useful
11:03:42amiconnYeah, probably
11:03:43hardeepJdGordon: s/without/within

11:04:12thePianoManno problem
11:04:35*JdGordon has an idea for redone playlist code to support cue and bookmarks, but cant figure out how to unshuffle the list
11:04:50JdGordonbut everything else would work, so i dont know if i should start coding or not
11:05:45hardeepJdGordon: maybe document it first? the playlist code does a lot so it would be good to make sure you have everything covered
11:06:30cehwhen i look under downloads on the and under dailybuilds it seems to be the same zipfile rockbox-h300-20060617 that I download. Is it the same?
11:06:47JdGordonadd track to beinging, end, randomly. shuffle entire list, load from .m3u, save to .m3u and unshuffle. anything missing there?
11:07:32hardeepJdGordon: in terms of what the playlist code does?
11:08:01JdGordon..beraing in mind i would keep all the external functions the same so no other code should need major hacing
11:08:29hardeepresume is a big one missing from your list
11:08:41hardeep(most of the complexity in the code revolves around that)

11:22:27Paul_The_Nerdhardeep: It's really the config loading that does it. The WPS can't set foreground and background colors, which is actually a bad thing.
11:23:33psycho_maniacim hopefully getting a ipod soon and i was fooling around on the ipod 5g simulator and noticed that for volume and setting changes up is down and down is up. is this the same on the actually player?
11:23:35hardeepPaul_The_Nerd: ah, right... either way, a check to make sure font color != bg color wouldn't hurt
11:24:12Paul_The_Nerdhardeep: Yeah, but it might ought to be a range, since black, and black+1 can look pretty similar. ;)
11:24:37hardeeptrue, a range check sounds reasonable too

11:25:46psycho_maniacoh i see how it seems opposite on the simulator
11:25:51Paul_The_Nerdhardeep: The *real* problem is that sometimes a theme might not set a background color, only a foreground color and a backdrop image. Which means while the foreground color conflicts with the background color, the image used makes it not matter.

12:17:19 Nick amiconn_ is now known as amiconn (n=jens@rockbox/developer/amiconn)
12:17:46Genre9mp3Cause the problem is not the fg/bg colours but the fg colours with a similar colour of a bacdrop loaded by another theme
12:19:28Genre9mp3The reproduction of the bug can be done by: Using a black backdrop, then load a theme that specifies a black fg colour and doesn't specify a backdrop
12:19:51Genre9mp3the old backdrop will remain, while the fg colour will be black
12:19:59Genre9mp3That's what causing it
12:20:50pixelmaproblem is: when a new theme is loaded that does not set one of the both colours, rockbox uses the old one instead - as shriphani experienced with changing from ubuntu theme to apple theme and get white font on white background
12:21:05Genre9mp3So I think, we should somehow force the backdrop to get cleared if a theme doesn't specify one
12:22:06Genre9mp3pixelma: Yes, but I think most of the themes specify both colours....I think the backdrop situation is more common
12:22:56Mikachudo themes usually change both the wps bg and the menu bg bitmaps?
12:23:15Genre9mp3But then again, a theme is actually a .cfg...and I don't know if it's wise to clear the backdrop whenever you load a .cfg file
12:23:43pixelmamaybe, that's the worse situation anyways
12:23:54Genre9mp3Mikachu: A theme is actually a .cfg can change everything! :)
12:24:03Mikachuhence the word "usually"
12:24:55Genre9mp3Mikachu: Well, there are many themes that use backdrops
12:24:56linuxstbBut there is no way to clear a backdrop - unless just having a line saying "backdrop: " (without a filename) will work.
12:25:03linuxstb(from a .cfg file)
12:25:30Mikachui was just thinking that if most themes are for the wps only, a simple fix would be to separate the wps fg/bg colors from the menu fg/bg colors
12:25:53Genre9mp3linuxstb: Does this "backdrop: " work now?
12:27:05linuxstbI don't know - I'm about to test.
12:27:42Genre9mp3Mikachu: Themes, now just set a bg/fg...which is universal, if you make it to change only the wps colours, then themes with backdrop may become a mess the menus

12:41:44webguest86hi, if my mp3 ID3 tags are messed up, will that affect playback, i.e tracks skipping, not loading and suchlike
12:42:20webguest86using file tree
12:42:28JdGordonashridah: does synergy just move the mouse across screens? or can u use it to setup the slave comp as an extension of the primary screen without installing a full setup on it?
12:42:50stripwaxwebguest86 - potentially - if the file is actually corrupted as a result.
12:43:20stripwaxwebguest86 - depends what you mean by 'messed up' though .. ?
12:43:43webguest86non existant, or only in ape format
12:44:21stripwaxwebguest86 - non existant should be fine of course. I don't know about ape format though, I'm afraid. I think that should be fine too though
12:45:04ashridahit moves a mouse and keyboard input across screens, basically.
12:45:21linuxstbpixelma: Yes - solitaire is still on my to-do list...
12:45:38stripwaxquick question about "antialiased fonts" - since we can currently set a font color, and the font bitmaps are stored 1bpp, is it that all that's required is to store more than 1bpp for fonts and use that as opacity?
12:45:48ashridahyou need it running on both sides, however, it uses its own protocol
12:46:03Mikachustripwax: you would need to implement alphatransparent rendering too
12:46:04stripwaxe.g. 2bpp fonts would probably look pretty good
12:46:09Mikachui don't think it currently is
12:46:19pixelmalinuxstb: didn't want to get on your nerves, just reminding
12:46:24 Part webguest86
12:46:34linuxstbpixelma: no problem...
12:46:46stripwaxMikachu - well, not across the board, just for fonts (should be easy on colour targets, I'd have thought)
12:47:26Mikachui don't it matters much what you intend to draw
12:48:05stripwaxHrm, do we use the same blt functions to render fonts as we do to render full colour bitmaps? (even though the font data is only stored 1bpp?)
12:48:26stripwaxI guess if we do, that makes it quite a bit trickier..
12:48:43Mikachuthere are some special monochrome functions i think
12:49:18JdGordonashridah: ah ok, not want i want then.. :(
12:49:19stripwaxMikachu - thx. so some simple mono-with-alpha function should be straightforward
12:49:30linuxstbThe general consensus seems to be that alpha-blended fonts would be too resource-intensive. But feel free to prove the opposite :) The font drawing is already too slow for large LCDs.
12:49:44ashridahJdGordon: well, that's pretty much the same thing x2x does
12:49:49ashridahwhat're you trying to do?

15:22:45preglowamiconn: i don't think the arm opts is what makes ogg faster tha mp3 on ipods, it's more probably the data cache
15:22:53preglowGenre9mp3: hah, excellent
15:22:59stripwaxdionoea - nothing to do with me ..
15:23:11preglowhmm, can anyone remember how much i got out of my h1x0 the last time i benched it?
15:23:12dionoeawell it's still nice :)

15:53:04chendoquick question
15:53:11chendohow hard is mp3 recording to implement?
15:53:33saa[b_r]ider@XavierGr: how's the H300 battery life with you up till now?
15:53:50ashridahdoes the rockbox mp3 encoder work at >100% realtime yet?
15:54:11ashridahchendo: it's probably not actually all that hard, it's just tedious and error prone getting the buffering right

15:56:27XavierGrOn a very old benchmark my H140 gave 25 hours but without the disk power off or the mp3 optimisations
15:56:36XavierGr(with the same 1900 mah battery)
15:56:55saa[b_r]iderGenre9mp3: Nice!!!
15:57:33saa[b_r]iderXavierGr: hmm.. so other than disk power off, what else do you have changed in the settings (which results in increasing battery life?)
15:58:27XavierGrnothing, but as I said the H140 (with 1900mah) was an old one.
15:58:53XavierGrso given the results of stock battery on H140 (21 hours with rockbox) an H340 with 1900 will go beyond 30 hours
15:58:56 Quit MarcoPolo (Remote closed the connection)
15:59:07XavierGrbut I am not sure about that, time will tell.
15:59:26XavierGrIt will be a very LONG battery_benchmark... :D
15:59:32saa[b_r]iderwonder how good battery life would be with the 2000+ mah batteries!
15:59:54saa[b_r]iderplease don't forget to post your results at MR ;)
16:00:01XavierGrthough many 2200mah batteries are cheap ones that can't manage to give more than 1900mah
16:00:13XavierGrsaa[b_r]ider:of course
16:00:38XavierGrIf the results are great I think I will pester Jeff for another front page news about Rockbox.
16:00:46saa[b_r]iderI'm still running on the stock 1300, but now I'm encouraged to upgrade!

17:13:26idnarthere's a utility called "rename" or "prename" that comes with perl
17:15:25idnarbasically lets you use any perl expression to manipulate filenames
17:15:44idnarin this case, you could do: rename 'tr[A-Z][a-z]' path/to/files/*

21:31:27Paul_The_NerdOn to forums, that is.
21:31:40Paul_The_NerdThe wiki has been getting hit now and then for a while

21:32:46*Paul_The_Nerd wishes that spam simply didn't earn money, so they'd stop doing it.
21:32:53dionoeahehe :)
21:33:34dionoeadoes rockbox have float support ? (and stuff like sqrt() ?)
21:33:51Paul_The_NerdSeriously, I want to find the 5 people that have to click spam links anywhere on Earth and actually make the practice profitable, and explain to them that 6billion people would like them to stop buying those pills their email keeps recommending.
21:34:02Paul_The_NerdRockbox is fixed point.
21:34:26preglowyes, yes it is
21:34:40obodionoea: I've just found and used a fixed-point sqrt
21:34:55preglowit has floating point support, as in it can support floating point operations, but it will be VERY slow since it's emulated
21:35:01preglowalso, we have no libm
21:35:11dionoeaobo: well it's just to draw an oval :) so i guess that i'll do some ugly stuff :)
21:35:13preglowthere already is a fixed point sqrt in rockbox
21:35:19preglowin eq.c
21:35:20dionoeaoh, where ?
21:35:34obopreglow: don't suppose you know of a log10 then?? ;)
21:35:43preglowthere is a log10 in rockbox as well
21:35:45preglowin replaygain.c
21:35:58preglowi'm planning to make a fixed point math library some time
21:36:16obothat would be good :D
21:36:17dionoeayou even have sin and cos ! great :)
21:36:28preglowi suck
21:36:30preglowwe have no log10
21:36:30Paul_The_Nerddionoea: Does the oval need to actually be drawn?
21:36:32preglowonly exp10
21:36:37oboah, okay
21:36:43dionoeaPaul_The_Nerd: it's for rockpaint ... so ... yeah :p
21:36:48preglowdionoea: yeah, really good sin/cos to boot
21:37:01Paul_The_NerdBah, with screens that small, people can hand-plot their curves.
21:37:19oboI've found a natural log, but to convert to log10 I need to do ln(x)/ln(10), and under fixed point it's throwing away too much precision :(
21:37:36obobut then again, I could easily be doing something stupid
21:37:40preglowdividing by ten is throwing awao too much precision????
21:37:46dionoeacan't you just count the number of digits and then do some simple stuff ?
21:37:51preglowwhat the hell are you making, a fractal zoomer?
21:38:02obohehe, no, vu_meter...
21:38:14preglowyou don't need that precision for a vu meter

23:06:14*Paul_The_Nerd cheers
23:06:18amiconnResult from my H300 runtime test (192kbps mp3, disk poweroff enabled, no backlight, 0dB line out): 20h 26min (!!)
23:08:57preglowamiconn: saw my question?
23:09:33*amiconn scrolls back
23:09:42preglowan hour ago or so
23:10:06preglowit doesn't look like bitrate has much to say at all on battery time when playing mp3s
23:11:02amiconnHmm, I don't really understand... do you want to put some fixed point fns in the core?
23:11:38preglow_i_ want them in a separate library that can be linked to whatever needs it
23:12:02preglowwe already have fixed point fns in the core, they're just not exported to plugins
23:12:45amiconnWell, so far there's a clear approach. If we need a certain function in the core, we put it there, and if plugins/codecs should also be able to use it, we put it into the api
23:13:18amiconnBut if there are functions which are not needed in the core, we put it into a library and link it against plugins/codecs
23:13:36amiconns/put it/put them/
23:13:53preglowthey're needed here and there in the core, but already someone's requested a fixed point fn that's not needed by the core
23:14:00preglowi can very well see it being useful, though
23:14:43preglowif it's not needed in the core, it should be added to the plugin source, but i'd like it if all fixed point stuff was put in one place, which then again pretty much means a library is needed
23:15:38amiconnThing is, if we put all functions into the core, we bloat the core, and if we put all functions in libraries, we bloat the codec+plugins
23:15:58preglowthere's a tradeoff
23:16:37Paul_The_NerdIsn't it better to bloat the plugins?
23:16:51preglowi'd say so
23:17:48amiconnI'd say neither the core nor the plugins should be bloated unnecessarily
23:18:05amiconnWhat's wrong with the current approach?
23:18:30preglowthat fixed point code is thrown all over the place
23:19:09preglowanyway, all fixed point code in rockbox should be put in a single file anyway
23:19:18amiconn'all over the place'? Just 2 different places...
23:19:23preglowright now we have some in eq.c, some in dsp.c, some in replaygain.c

23:20:31preglowis that general enough to be put in firmware/ or what?

23:26:43XavierGrthough the ETA is so off, that I was scared for a moment
23:27:28XavierGrit said 3 hours to shut down and it is playing for more than 5 hours. We should definitely calibrate it with all those benchmarks
23:28:07amiconnGuess why I'm doing these?
23:28:14preglowwe need more than mp3 benchmarks first
23:28:20amiconnCollecting data for runtime calibration
23:28:22preglowwe can't use mp3 benchmarks for avg batt runetime
23:28:27preglowruntime too
23:28:43preglowan average of mp3, ogg and flac would be nice
23:28:43amiconn..varying parameters
23:29:25amiconnI disagree somewhat
23:29:45 Join BHSPitMonkey [0] (
23:30:04amiconn(1) mp3 is the most widespread format. It's also supported on all targets
23:30:08XavierGramiconn: yes I know :p
23:30:19preglowamiconn: moot point, the runtime estimation won't be cross target
23:30:20amiconn(2) It's a clearly defined base for runtime measurement
23:30:24preglowit has to be done per target
23:30:50preglowin what way is mp3 a better base than ogg? the last point just sounds the like first point again
23:31:10preglowyes, mp3 is the most widespread, but for those who don't use it, the runtime estimation will be waaay off
23:31:32amiconn(2) would allow using any format, as long as it's the same for all measurements, with an average and widespread bitrate
23:31:48Paul_The_NerdYou should do MP3 and WAV, and use them as a range. WAV would be the lowest runtime, right? Most disk spinups?
23:32:11amiconnThe runtime estimation won't be way off. It would be off by a factor not deviating much from 1
23:32:30preglowi'd like to see a benchmark before i'll guess too much about that
23:32:36amiconnFurthermore, runtime depends a lot on actual usage, most probably more than on different formats
23:32:41preglowi really have no idea how the other codecs perform right now
23:33:23preglowsure, indeed
23:33:34Paul_The_NerdThough I think having an estimated "minimum playback time left" (assuming the user doesn't fiddle with the controls) is better than an estimation that's average or maximum.
23:33:38preglowbut i still say basing runtime estimation on mp3 only is a bit weird
23:34:27preglowPaul_The_Nerd: then we'd have to base runtime estimation on our worst performing codec, assuming backlgiht gets switched on all the time and tracks changed a lot
23:34:32preglownot an easy benchmark to do
23:34:51amiconnPaul_The_Nerd: That would make the user think of it as some kind of guaranteed runtime, which it isn't and will never be.
23:34:59amiconnIt's simply impossible
23:35:35preglowyour proposition to use mp3 benchmarks as time estimation isn't much better
23:35:38Paul_The_NerdI was thinking more simply use the worst-performing codec, rather than one of the best.
23:35:40amiconnWhat if the user keeps the disk spinning all the time? What if he's operating the device at -20 캜 ?
23:35:46preglowit'll overshoot so much as to be almost unusable
23:36:11Paul_The_NerdNot as a guaranteed minimum, but as a "Assuming you just leave it playing right now, you should *probably* get at least this much time left"

23:38:08amiconnAnd using 192kbps mp3 does certainly not yield the maximum runtime
23:38:11dionoeadoes rockbox alread have a write_bmp_file (or equivalent) function ?
23:38:22amiconnThere are user with audiobooks and the like at 32kbps...
23:38:31Paul_The_NerdOoh, ooh, that's me!
23:38:33tucozdionoea, the screen dump perhaps?
23:38:41Paul_The_NerdMono, 32kbps, 22khz if I recall.
23:38:45dionoeatucoz: hum ... right. thanks :)
23:39:37preglowamiconn: would be fun to see a benchmark at 32kbps, heh
23:40:12XavierGror make an idle benchmark
23:40:25Paul_The_NerdOr Radio
23:40:25 Quit PaulJam (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
23:40:35XavierGrhow much can rockbox run without doing anything?
23:40:37tucozOn devices such as the nano, what is the best option (battery wise). Wav or mp3?
23:40:54Paul_The_NerdTheoretically WAV I would say, right?
23:41:39amiconnRadio will probably give a really long time. CPU running at 11MHz...
23:41:56preglowamiconn: even retailos runs for ages on radio

23:42:24*amiconn never used radio in retailos
23:42:32tucozyeah, the radio has save me lot's of times when I was low on battery
23:43:09preglowi've used it a couple of times
23:43:16preglowonce i used it for hours and hours
23:43:20preglowhad almost no impact on battery
23:43:29XavierGrI can imagine...
23:43:50preglowyeah, when i used it for the local broadcast on an airshow once
23:44:10pregloweight hours or so, nothing much happened on the battery indicator
23:45:34*amiconn still has the idea of a wakeup timer for H1x0 on his todo list
23:45:46preglowi'd like that too, but i don't really need it anymore
23:45:48preglowsince i got the nano
23:46:45tucozwould you run it on 11Mhz then? Or even some lower frequency?
23:46:56amiconnIn addition to running the CPU at 11MHz (or depending on the additional requirements of the PLL, even 6.25MHz), we can put the LCD into standby, and switch off DRAM refresh, running the timer loop in IRAM only. Then set the timer interrupt from 100Hz to 1Hz
23:47:25XavierGrhow long can it last in that mode (theoritically)?
23:47:32tucozages ;)
23:47:38amiconnI think a couple of days... perhaps a week
23:48:04preglowa week sounds plausible enough
23:48:10Paul_The_NerdMore than long enough, either way.
23:48:10gpoohow do you people use ipod in your car
23:48:16amiconnIt really depends on what we can powerdown, and how the CPU power requirements change with frequency
23:48:23preglowamiconn: coldfire uses 1ma per mhz, yes?
23:48:32amiconnNo, less
23:48:45preglowi think they stated it somewhere
23:48:47preglowcan't remember where
23:48:59preglowi doubt the pll sucks that much
23:50:25gpoowhat is your people choose for using rockbox in the car
23:50:28gpooI need some input
23:50:35gpoomy car has a cassete player
23:51:06Paul_The_NerdThen use a cassette adapter.
23:51:13gpoomy question was which is th ebest one
23:51:15amiconnI just connect one of my rockboxes to my car stereo via aux in
23:51:18gpoobest one, I tryed three of them
23:51:29gpooand they all auto reverse
23:51:30gpooa lot
23:51:45gpooafter like one hour of play then every min it auto reserve it annoys me
23:51:48Paul_The_NerdThis is really a question you should be asking somewhere else, since it's not really Rockbox related.
23:52:03Paul_The_NerdBut it sounds like an issue with your tape deck.
23:52:18gpoohow is the quality of your aux
23:52:19 Quit heff (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
23:52:28gpooPaul_The_Nerd do you think something can be done to my tape deck
23:52:42gpoooh sorry I knw it not rockbox
23:53:02Paul_The_NerdIt would really depend on what's wrong with it. And an aux-input would sound noticeably better than a tape adapter.
23:53:18gpooI want to get pionner was my final question, which is to say will rockbox work with pionner setup
23:53:29gpooas to play and change songs even gapless
23:54:09Paul_The_NerdIf it uses the accessory protocol, that aspect of it won't work, and it's possible it won't work at all. If it simply uses the line out, it should work.
23:54:48gpoooh it uses accessory protocol
