00:11:08Mult|PaSsis there a way to config the buttons of rockbox so it acts like ipod navigation?
00:13:39dwihnoButton reconfiguration requires you to change the source code and recompile the firmware.
00:13:47Mult|PaSs:( k
00:17:20linuxstb_Mult|PaSs: What would you want to change?
00:17:42Mult|PaSsi like rockbox better in all ways except the button config

00:18:04Mult|PaSsMENU is back.. that was easy :)
00:18:20linuxstb_MENU brings up the menu... What other key would you use for that?
00:18:51 Quit lds__ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:18:52|apo|linuxstb: Why, the Big Red Button of course.
00:18:58dwihnoLearning the rockbox button mapping is not too hard...
00:19:31Mult|PaSswhy do I need the menu? its got the settings and playlists. (dont use playlists
00:19:39S0apyay - three reboots later it finally found all my new folders!
00:19:51Mult|PaSsI just want the menu to be the 'back' button like originally is

00:22:20 Quit lightyear (Remote closed the connection)
00:22:21S0apI upped the maximum # of folders to 600 (I only have 575), and turned off the cache, rebooted, yet it still didn't display all my new folders. rebooted twice more and there they were.
00:22:39linuxstb_Mult|PaSs: Remember also that Rockbox runs on a large number of DAPs from various different manufacturers - the aim is not to mimic one particular DAP's original firmware, but to provide a consistent interface across all DAPs.
00:23:31Mult|PaSstrue. But a configger with a gui would be nice. But I will survive
00:23:43Mult|PaSsthanx for making rockbox btw.. if there are coders in here :)
00:24:22CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
00:24:22*preglow falls asleep
00:24:45dwihnoMult|PaSs: honestly, I think it's more intuitive to have "left" as back instead of menu
00:26:08S0apI agree it is more logical, but more intuitive after years of ipoding???
00:27:53dwihnoProbably not :)
00:28:12dwihnoTo be honest, I never tried playing anything back using the ipod fw
00:29:39S0apIt's not bad, but i am so used to browing the directory tree.
00:30:14S0apmy albums not being sorted by artist, but not year of release kills me.
00:30:26S0ap(scratch the first "not")
00:30:39dwihnoTag cache to the rescue?

00:31:37Mult|PaSsI really dont understand how you can use the original apple software and enjoy 500 albums!
00:31:46Mult|PaSsUnless you make a playlist from every album
00:32:08S0apnah, directory tree is good enough. Mine folders are all <Artist> - <Year> - <Album Title>
00:32:16Mult|PaSsthat is what i like so much about rockbox. It works like Explorer. From A-Z
00:32:27dwihnoS0ap: Yeah, I'm too a directory tree person....

00:33:31Mult|PaSswhat is a Good font to use? my dad cant read rockbox font :)))
00:33:40S0apthe ipod native FW and VA albums don't get along. I have only a couple of dozen VAs, but they pollute the "Artist" view on the ipod.
00:34:02Mult|PaSssoap yeah
00:34:04Mult|PaSsman I hate that
00:34:12Mult|PaSsyou end up with 8000 artists
00:34:18Mult|PaSswhile you only know 200
00:34:24Mult|PaSs7800 are from crappy VA's
00:34:31Mult|PaSsone day 'hit' wonders :)
00:34:33dwihnoMoving is a bad thing when you realize you don't have a slightest idea where the SecureDigital chips are and you need them tomorrow...
00:34:45linuxstb_That annoyed me as well - even albums with guest performers on certain tracks give a whole new artist
00:35:03 Join timemob [0] (
00:35:14Mult|PaSsnative FW is a laugh..
00:35:48Mult|PaSsreally dont understand why ppl love it.. When you choose ALBUM, you only get album names! Like you know every single album name of every artist
00:36:10timemobso i plugged my nano to usb to charge for a few hours then powered that pc off.
00:36:17Mult|PaSsAnd you get ZZ-top maybe first because the album starts with an A

00:42:15midkayMult|PaSs, hm, instead of browsing by ALL albums what would you propose?
00:42:18timemobrockbox needs autorename to crc32 function
00:42:37midkayif you browse by album of course you should be able to.. gasp.. view a list of all albums.
00:42:40 Join JoeyBorn [0] (
00:42:42midkayotherwise you wouldn't be using that mode.
00:42:53Mult|PaSsyes of course
00:43:02Mult|PaSsbut you dont know what artist it is
00:43:10Mult|PaSsso why not ALBUM - ARTIST
00:43:15midkayand? if you know the album, it doesn't matter what the artist is..
00:43:19timemobstatus of implementing crc32 in rockbox
00:43:22midkaywhy not then just browse by artist? much quicker.
00:43:34Mult|PaSsdude when you got 400 cd's you dont now all the names
00:43:39midkaythen use the ARTIST mode, huh?
00:43:51Mult|PaSsthat sux more because all the VA ppl are in the list to
00:44:06midkaywhen you do happen to know the album name then album mode might be useful, but it's not meant to be the primary browsing mode.

00:50:55PaulJamwhy don't you just rename the files on the pc?

01:07:30timemobdoes rockbox plugin in lua?
01:07:44timemobwhy not
01:07:56midkaybecause we don't need or want it. rockbox is written in C.
01:08:11PaulJami think it is your choice how to implement it. i doubt that it has a chance to get committed anyway.

01:09:14midkayin fact, what is the point, may i ask?
01:09:26timemobmany people havent discovered the joy of 8.3 mp3s
01:09:35midkay8.3 mp3s?
01:09:51PaulJammaybe some kind of brain training
01:09:53timemobthats what it would rename to
01:09:55|apo|midkay: mp3s with 8 byte filenames and 3 byte extensions, I guess
01:10:37midkaytimemob, well, i don't think you've discovered the lack-of-joy of them.. i really, really doubt you'll find a person in here who's remotely interested in that.

01:13:06midkaythat's getting pretty old.
01:13:31midkayyou got linked to a guide, nobody cares about "8.3 mp3s", you're welcome to figure it out if you're so interested in randomly-named files.
01:13:56timemobyou just hate lua cuz its written by brazilian
01:14:00PaulJamit would be nice to have a plugin that compares the crc of the audiodata in an mp3 with the music crc stored in the lame header.

08:22:43MalnilionWell...that's not even an HD player...
08:22:44g0nmarkun, my problem is that when i want to start doom on my h340 the game told me " .wad file is missing "
08:23:31markung0n: did you read the website I sent you and install the .wad files?
08:24:06Malnilionamerico, if you look at the players Rockbox was designed for, you'll see that they share some main features that make them similar to each other.
08:24:26MalnilionFeatures that this player lacks.
08:24:55MalnilionThere is no LCD screen, for example.
08:25:32MalnilionWell, not a big enough one to count...
08:26:04americoIts display is LCD 128X32
08:26:32g0nyap i do. i will check it now how it works. markun
08:27:11MalnilionBah, I dunno, I don't even know if I'd want a player that small, americo.
08:27:54MalnilionThe other thing is figuring out how to replace the firmware :P

08:36:40g0ncould i have more than 1 doom version ( i mean other doom games like doom 2 or something) on the iriver?
08:39:37americodo you know if Archos, iRiver and iAudio players have the capacity of play the same track in the same second once you turn on after a shutdown? I know that iPod do it
08:40:03g0ni river can do this americo
08:40:52g0nspecialty: h340 can do it i know it for 100% ^^ the rest of the players i thnk too but i am not sure
08:41:31MalnilionYeah, the iAudio X5 picks up where it left off when you hit the play button (and maybe automatically if you configure it to, but I'm not certain).
08:41:58JdGordonyes, there is an option to automatically resume playback when it turns on
08:42:02JdGordonshould be on all platforms
08:42:21MalnilionYep, there you have it :)

09:29:40UncleBillhello friends
09:33:14UncleBillI have an iRiver iHP-140 with RockBox on it. like an idiot, I plugged the wrong power charger into it, and it stopped working. I opened it up and I see one charred chip. unfortunately, I can't read the label on the chip and I'm not a hardware-expert. It has six leads, and I'm hopeful it's the only thing broken

09:43:16UncleBillJdGordon, I'm looking now. I have a picture I've taken of my board; I could post it somewhere and show you
09:44:05UncleBillI looked at the schematics that Linus posted on the rockbox site, but couldn't make much headway of locating the chip
09:45:26JdGordon.. well unless u can figure out which chip u fried there isnt much chance of someone being able to help u :p
09:46:03UncleBillmy other issue is that once I find the chip, I'm not sure how to replace it. I've soldered plenty in my life, but never surface mount chips. these things are pretty small. I'll have to figure the proper technique and tools

09:47:55UncleBillon the picture you sent me to, JdGordon, I see the chip, but can't read the name there. it's U28, along the bottom edge, directly to the left of the reset button

13:20:59AMwhy do I need to add a case for BUTTON_REPEAT in menu_show (that's the function where switch (key) is)? shouldn't I be able to achieve the same thing by installing a callback function when calling menu_init?
13:21:21AMI'd rather do this without having to modify menu.[ch] if possible
13:23:01 Join Poka64 [0] (
13:25:30AMI gave the callback approach a try and it works... ...sort of. it detects long clicks, and when it does I've made it display a submenu. but when I go back from the submenu it doesn't immediately update the display (the submenu is still shown until I hit UP or DOWN, then it displays the previous menu). is there some update()-function or similar I need to call?
13:28:09ZagorAM: the menu is designed like this to make sure all menus work the same. adding special keys to menus is likely to cause user confusion.
13:30:53 Join spiorf [0] (
13:31:45 Join DarkJesus [0] (
13:34:44amiconnAM: The callback is only for manipulating button codes and/or doing additional actions in the same menu, i.e. things not displaying anything.
13:35:00amiconnThat's why the menu code doesn't refresh the display
13:37:59AMok, so what do I use if I have a menu option called "load profile". I want it to display a list of previously saved profiles, where normal click loads the profile and long click allows you to deleter or rename the profile?
13:39:05amiconnYou can already save as many configurations as you want (write .cfg file)
13:39:22 Join TeaSea [0] (
13:39:23amiconnThen you can load them (browse .cfg files)
13:39:39amiconnThis is actually a file3 browser (sub-browser) if you want to delete one, just use the context menu
13:39:59amiconnNo need to reinvent the wheel...
13:43:59AMok, forget about "profile". perhaps that's the wrong thing to call it, anyway what I want is a simple load "file function". so yeah, I guess a filetree would be better. I'm guessing it's possible to filter so it only shows certain file types? I'd prefer if it were locked to a specific dir as well?

20:03:56funkyany order to do it ?
20:04:18 Join linuxstb_ [0] (
20:04:52linuxstb_funky: What operating system are you installing from?
20:08:02linuxstb_Then it doesn't really matter. But it's probably easier to install IPL first as you need to repartition your ipod.
20:08:24linuxstb_You also need to decide which bootloader you want - ipodloader2 or the Rockbox bootloader.
20:08:46linuxstb_(but they are interchangable in both the IPL and Rockbox installation instructions).
20:09:23 Join slarti [0] (i=slarti@gentoo/developer/slarti)
20:09:26funkyaha, which of them do you recomend me ?
20:09:29 Quit MarcoPolo (Remote closed the connection)
20:09:39funkyipodloader2 looks fine
20:09:42linuxstb_But one thing I would recommend is to backup your MBR (dd if=/dev/sda of=mbr.bin count=1) and to backup the firmware partition - dd if=/dev/sda1 of=bootpartition.bin
20:09:46funkyI havent seen yet the rockbox one
20:09:56linuxstb_(assuming /dev/sda is your ipod)
20:10:39linuxstb_If you plan on regularly using more than Rockbox, I would say go with the IPL bootloader - it's got a nice menu. The Rockbox bootloader is just designed to load Rockbox as fast as possible.
20:12:21 Join dpm [0] (
20:12:23funkyok, thanks for the tips linuxstb_
20:12:39linuxstb_After you've installed IPL according to their instructions, installing Rockbox is just a matter of downloading a from the daily builds page and doing "unzip -d /mnt/ipod/"
20:13:07linuxstb_(where /mnt/ipod/ is your ipod's FAT32 partition)
20:13:47 Join obo [0] (
20:14:04funkydo you prefer fat32 than hfs+ ?
20:14:56linuxstb_You don't have a choice - Rockbox only works with fat32.
20:15:08funkyahh, didnt know
20:15:37linuxstb_But I prefer FAT32 anyway because it will work everywhere.
20:15:47funkyaye, thats a good point
20:16:47linuxstb_Is your ipod currently HFS?
20:16:56funkyyes, it is
20:17:20linuxstb_Then you should convert it to FAT32 before starting anything.
20:17:58funkyI can do it using ipodloader2, right ?
20:18:01linuxstb_(assuming you want to use Rockbox..)
20:18:14funkyyeah, I want to use it
20:18:27funkylinuxstb_: what's your DAP ?
20:18:32linuxstb_No - ipodloader2 is just a bootloader.
20:18:35funkyan ipod too ?
20:18:44funkysorry, ipodinstallar2 I meant
20:19:07linuxstb_I've various - an old Archos Recorder which I don't use any more, an iriver H140, a 60GB ipod Color, and a 30GB ipod video.
20:19:24funkynice collection :))
20:19:41linuxstb_No, I think ipodinstaller2 will keep the ipod as it comes. But I've never used it, so I might be wrong.
20:20:36linuxstb_But converting is straightforward - either run the ipod updater from a WIndows machine, or manually convert it (ask me how...)
20:21:02 Join damaki [0] (
20:21:12funkyhow? using mkfs.vfat ?
20:21:51linuxstb_Yes, but you also need to repartition to give your ipod a DOS MBR instead of an Apple Partition Map.
20:22:46funkyOK, thanks again for your help, now its time to read a bit more
20:22:55linuxstb_But you will need to grab the contents of the boot partition from your ipod first.
20:23:04funkyyeah, I'll do
20:23:17linuxstb_Easiest way to repartition is to grab a ready-made MBR for your ipod from here:
20:23:39linuxstb_You then just write it to your ipod (dd if=mbr.bin of=/dev/sda). Then disconnect your ipod and reattach it.
20:24:17linuxstb_(that wiki page has some conversion instructions for Mac users which may give you a clue)
20:25:48funkyI'll read the whole installation instruciontions from ipodlinux and rockbox wikis before do anything
20:26:36funkyI dont think that apple warranty will cover this kind of operations, I dont think this can damage seriously anything though
20:27:10linuxstb_No, you can always run Apple's official restore program (from Win or Mac)

21:44:35linuxstb_Rockbox plays video (a custom .rvf format) on the Archos devices (a small mono LCD).
21:45:09linuxstb_But that hasn't been ported to the newer (iriver/cowan/apple) players.
21:45:25linuxstb_But it's basically just uncompressed video, so it's not of any use for larger colour LCDs.
21:46:01theprodukktyou are chief ;)
21:46:13Febs[15:40] <theprodukkt> silence-cutoff?
21:46:21Febs^^ This is not what gapless is about.
21:46:39 Join Daishi [0] (
21:46:42FebsGapless play back plays songs the way they are mastered.
21:46:59FebsIf the song is mastered with a 2-second (or whatever) pre-gap, that's what you'll hear.
21:47:27FebsIf the album is mastered with no gaps between tracks (i.e., Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon), the tracks will playback without any gaps added.
21:48:15theprodukktwhats the difference to silence-cutoff then?
21:48:18FebsIf you want to eliminate silence between tracks that is otherwise supposed to be there, you can use the crossfade function.
21:48:30theprodukkti dont understand
21:48:36theprodukktbut its not that important
21:49:01theprodukkti think i will when i run rockbox on my (not already bought) h340
21:49:09Febs|−−−−−−−−-song 1−−−−−−-|−−−−−−-song 2−−−−-|
21:49:17Febs|−−−−−−−−-song 1−−−−−−-| |−−−−−−-song 2−−−−-|
21:49:23linuxstb_theprodukkt: If you rip a CD to WAV files, and then open those files in an audio editor, you'll normally see short periods of silence at the start and end. That's the silence that "silence-cutoff" will attempt to trim.
21:49:37theprodukkt^^ ok
21:49:42FebsGapless will play the first example with no gap, but it will keep the silence in between songs in the second example.
21:50:16theprodukktisnt that the usual playback function?
21:50:27linuxstb_What Rockbox means by gapless is that it won't add any extra silence between tracks that was not originally there. Every other MP3 player inserts silence, which is annoying when you play consecutive tracks mastered without silence at the start and end.
21:50:46linuxstb_(e.g. a live album or DSOTM)
21:50:55theprodukktdidnt realized that bug yet :)
21:51:00FebsIt *should* be the usual playback function, but aside from Rockbox, there has only ever been one MP3 player that actually did it right.
21:51:12idnar*every* other player?
21:51:22linuxstb_I agree, IMO, it's a bug to insert silence between tracks. But it's become the norm.
21:51:42linuxstb_Apart from the long-deceased Rio Karma.
21:51:50FebsThe Rio Karma is the only non-Rockbox gapless player.
21:51:56*theprodukkt doesnt know it ...
21:52:08TeaSealinuxstb_: It's not really a bug as such, it's a design flaw.
21:52:30theprodukkti dont think the developers wantet to player to act like that
21:52:32FebsMany players have some sort of gap delete but that is *not* the same as gapless, and often does more damage than good.
21:52:57theprodukktanother problem

23:18:01amiconnlinuxstb, earHertz: (1) The speed relation could also depend on the memory interface width
23:18:32amiconn(2) My impression is that linux developers usually don't optimise much
23:18:47earHertzamiconn: expand on 1? you mean the bandwidth?
23:19:03amiconn16 vs. 32bit
23:19:28earHertzamiconn: then why trouble to write it in asm? teh non-aligned copy is heavikly (and well optimized) in teh kernel
23:20:30amiconnI don't know, it's just an impression
23:21:25Paul_The_Nerdtheprodukkt: For Rockbox use right now, H340. But then, you also didn't specify which category of iPod.
23:21:28*amiconn suspects that the coldfire linux memcpy is also slower than rockbox's version
23:21:57theprodukktthe ipod video
23:21:59amiconnBut then, rockbox's coldfire memcpy is a code monster compared to a plain C implementation
23:22:08theprodukktV. generation
23:22:22Bagderwell linux on m68k is not very widely used
23:22:29Bagderon arm it is
23:22:43Paul_The_Nerdtheprodukkt: Well, the H340 is better supported by Rockbox at the moment.
23:22:45linuxstb_theprodukkt: Just go with your instinct - they are all good DAPs.
23:23:21 Part Paul_The_Nerd
23:23:29theprodukkti want them to be good also with their orginal firmware
23:23:35*theprodukkt is perfectionist
23:23:47theprodukktthey all cost a lot
23:24:09theprodukktand i want to have the best for that money
23:24:18amiconnIf the original firmware were perfect, there wouldn't be a rockbox port...
23:25:05theprodukkti'd prefer the h340
23:25:10theprodukktbut it is soo big
23:25:23theprodukktand the tastatur layout isnt the best
23:25:34theprodukktnavigation isnt easy to i heard
23:25:40linuxstb_The h340 is a good choice for Rockbox because every part of the hardware (I think) has publically available documentation.
23:25:49lowlightanyone understand the viewer.c plugin?
23:25:50amiconnBut then, all rockbox supported daps have their pros and cons. None of them is perfect, it depends on what features you're most interested in
23:26:08*petur hugs his h340
23:26:13goffai'h i like the h1xx series myself...
23:26:17goffabut then i don't need video
23:26:17theprodukktat the cowon i dont like the small joystick and the display
23:26:23apo`theprodukkt: Forgive me if I'm wrong, but afaik tastatur is no English word :P You mean keyboard
23:26:33theprodukkt^^ sry yes
23:26:39theprodukkti mean keys ;)
23:27:10apo`Are you from Germany?
23:27:12theprodukktat the ipod i love the wheel... and the amazing display
23:27:18apo`Me too
23:27:19*theprodukkt is from germany
23:27:25goffai like my x5 too.. but i don't like the battery life (yet)
23:27:32theprodukktbut i dont like the apple-marketing
23:27:33apo`Well, the wheel. The display on a 4g ain't all that great :P
23:27:36apo`< German, too
23:28:08goffayeah... apple just isn't right
23:28:33theprodukktare there big differences between the ipod and the iriver port of rockbox?
23:28:36linuxstb_But put Rockbox on an ipod, and it's no longer Apple's.
23:28:39apo`My next mp3 player is gonna be an iPod, anyway. I just need the wheel.
23:29:26BagderearHertz: arm7tdmi is not ARM arch 5 iirc
23:29:41Bagderso you can just skip the PLD() things
23:29:44theprodukktdo someone know if the host-usb function of the h340 is able to play files directly (without having to copy them) from an external (300gb xD) usb hd?
23:29:49Bagderfrom the linux asm version of memcpy
23:29:59*ender` yawns
23:30:01earHertzBagder: yeah, I asked about that in ipodlinux and got the same answer
23:30:23 Part lowlight
23:30:29earHertzBagder: I actually am thinking my memcpy is faster than the kernels. Help me to prove myself wrong
23:31:16PaulJamtheprodukkt: you need to copy the files first (with the original firmware)
23:31:21Bagderwell, include the kernel version, cut out the #include lines, remove the PLD() lines and it should more or less work, doesn't it?
23:31:22*amiconn spots an active Bagder and kindly asks for repairing the broken %Y% in twiki
23:31:23earHertzevenif I linked it wrong (eg, not aligned) I'd just add a constant factor to irts cost, right?
23:31:49 Join damaki_ [0] (
23:31:53earHertzBagder: yeah, I did (the PLD lines are #defined out anyway, no problwems)
23:32:09linuxstb_earHertz: I agree with amiconn - Linux isn't always perfectly optimised. So don't be surprised that you've beaten it.
23:32:42Bagderamiconn: no time for that now, sorry
23:33:03amiconnIt's just a wiki edit I'm not allowed to perform...
23:33:14earHertzlinuxstb_: hmm
23:33:21*petur thinks we need more wiki admins
23:33:44earHertzwouldn't you want tio have memcpy aggressively optiized? OI mean, it gets used a lot, right (except inC++)
23:33:46theprodukktone more stupid question: does the ipod have usb?
23:34:27peturthrough a special cable :p
23:34:31linuxstb_earHertz: It's only the kernel version. Linux applications will use the C library or their own implementations.
23:34:55linuxstb_(that's why I suggested uclibc)
23:34:55theprodukkt^^ thats what i dont like at ipod :(
23:35:23earHertzwait, they're NOTthe same?
23:35:30earHertzwhy the hell not?
23:35:54petuririver has no special accessories, but then again it already contains everything, you just need the correct (standard) cable
23:36:03theprodukktwill there be a scratch feature using the ipod wheel ;)
23:36:04linuxstb_Because userland apps don't call a kernel function for memcpy...
23:36:41peturtheprodukkt: write one ;)
23:37:37theprodukkthow is the handling of the h340? is the keylayout o.k.? (Looks strange to me), is it easy to find the right Song / to navigate through huge amounts of Tracks?
23:38:41peturtheprodukkt: I just keep up/down pressed until I'm there. Tip: organize your files better ;)
23:39:34FebsiPod is better than H340 for moving quickly through a long list. H340 is better than iPod at selecting the exact file you want once you get close to it.
23:40:01midkayi'd hardly say the H340 is better at that, since it's not hard on ipod..
23:40:17midkayslightly easier, but hardly noticeable..
23:40:20peturh3x0 has MORE buttons and no multi-key combo's
23:40:56*petur must admit he has never even touched an ipod
23:41:12apo`I've touched both
23:41:15Febsmidkay: iPod has no tactile feedback, so it's tough to make one-step adjustments without looking at the screen.
23:41:15apo`Prefer the iPod
23:41:24 Nick theprodukkt is now known as thprdkk|wc3tft (
23:41:40thprdkk|wc3tftstill dont know which i should BUY
23:41:47PaulJamFebs: but the ipod can click.
23:41:51thprdkk|wc3tftplease give me an uniform answer ;)
23:41:58peturthere isn't one
23:42:07thprdkk|wc3tftill come back later and want the name of the BEST player ;)
23:42:20thprdkk|wc3tftbut as it looks now the cowon isnt an alternative
23:42:21amiconnThere is no clear 'best'
23:42:28midkayFebs, oh, for sure, you can't do a thing as far as browsing without seeing the screen.
23:42:37midkaybut when you see the screen there's no problem..
23:42:38amiconn...but if I had to decide between h340 and ipod, I'd choose the h340
23:43:06XavierGrway to go amiconn
23:43:09XavierGrnice choice
23:43:24thprdkk|wc3tfti already heard the h3x0 uses rockbox better
23:43:25XavierGr(though I know that you still prefer your Archos than an H100/H300)
23:43:29midkayeveryone's got an opinion.. just look at the features and see which is best for you. they all run rockbox very similarly.
23:43:34FebsI, on the other hand, sold my H340 and bought an iPod video. However, I probably would not have done that if I didn't also have an H120.
23:43:36 Join fiftyfour123 [0] (
23:43:49peturthprdkk|wc3tft: the point is, once you have the player, you'll get used to the handling and be happy with it
23:44:24PaulJamif my h320 wouldn't have survived my soldering (replacing the dac) i propably would have bought an h340
23:44:36linuxstb_midkay: That's not quite true - Rockbox on the irivers is a lot more advanced than the ipods. And that probably won't change too much considering the lack of hardware docs for the ipods.
23:44:38thprdkk|wc3tftin which parts the rockbox support of the ipod isnt that good than that of the h3x0
23:44:41 Quit lightyear (Remote closed the connection)
23:45:02fiftyfour123will rockbox 3.0 have an HFS+ file system for the ipod?
23:45:04midkaylinuxstb, what do you mean, advanced?
23:45:08FebsiPod hardware does not support recording or FM radio without purchasing additional (expensive) accessories.
23:45:08Bagderfiftyfour123: no
23:45:13fiftyfour123why not?
23:45:23Bagderbecause 3.0 is not for the ipod
23:45:29Febsfiftyfour123: do you think that the answer has changed since you asked that question earlier on the forums?
23:45:31Bagderand because no one is insane enough to write code for it
23:45:39fiftyfour123Febs: you never kno
23:45:45Bagder(HFS that is)
23:46:01thprdkk|wc3tftbut the h3x0 is huge and heavy, isnt it?
23:46:07fiftyfour123i have been trying to launch rockbox off a FAT32 partition on my ipod with the ipl loader but its not working
23:46:33midkaylinuxstb_ (wrong nick last time) - what do you mean, it's more advanced?
23:46:34earHertzlinuxstb_: thanks, I',m looking at the uclibc niow
23:46:38thprdkk|wc3tftis it possible to use rockbox, ipodlinux and the ipodfirewall on 1 player ?

23:46:47linuxstb_midkay: There is still a lot of work to do on the ipod ports, and a lot of it (e.g. USB support, accessories) will require a lot of reverse engineering work because there is no documentation.

23:47:04thprdkk|wc3tftthe ipod has better video support!
23:47:04Febsthprdkk|wc3tft: I wouldn't call the H340 heavy. Huge is relative. It's smaller than an Archos Recorder, but bigger than an iPod video.
23:47:13 Quit _FireFly_ ("Leaving")
23:47:14fiftyfour123whats ipodfirewall?
23:47:36linuxstb_midkay: Also, irivers are about to get their first official release. The first official Rockbox for the ipods is still at long way way.
23:47:50FebsMy H340 was approximately twice as deep as my 60 GB ipod. Otherwise, the dimensions were about the same.
23:47:54linuxstb_^a long way away
23:47:56fiftyfour123whats ipodfirewall?
23:48:11amiconnHuh? I now get 403 when trying to access the wiki??
23:48:23FebsThe ipod does fit much better in my pocket than the H340.
23:48:46fiftyfour123whats ipodfirewall?
