06:16:24imphasing_Ah.. that would probably explain why it's slow
06:16:54imphasing_Right now, there's a simple compressed video player for ipodlinux that uses a really simple jpeg like compression scheme, and it can get about 12fps on an ipod nano

06:19:12imphasing_Using the second processor seems to be fairly tricky.. I think there's only 2 programs that use both in ipodlinux right now

06:22:36jhMikeSIt had the inlude paths but it was saying all kinds of stuff wasn't defined and such. It drove me nuts. I'd like to have it output with source and hex. I think there should be a make option for that IMO.

08:31:55amiconnAnother hint regarding jumptables: Jumptables involving a data read are slow, unless the table is in IRAM. Using a computed branch into a streak of bra.s is faster. Reason: our coldfire has an instruction cache but no data cache.
08:33:25amiconnAnd finally, regarding the usage of IRAM buffers in lcd_yuv_blit(), you can simply make these buffers auto-vars. lcd_yuv_blit() is only called by the main thread (== gui thread), and the main stack is in IRAM.

11:59:02linuxstbHow does the int value settings screen work? Does it just display a long list of all the integer values?
11:59:21JdGordonthe volume list looks odd.. but works fine
11:59:40linuxstbI don't think that will work well on targets with slow LCD drivers, such as the ipods.
12:00:02JdGordonwhy not? its no worse than the tree browser...
12:00:12linuxstbExactly - the tree browser is slow when dealing with long lists.
12:00:50JdGordonits using the text callback to get the item name, so its not a large list really...
12:00:58linuxstbWouldn't a slider be a better way to represent integer settings, if we're looking to improve the UI?
12:01:44JdGordonyes and no...
12:02:22JdGordonanyway, with his i think there is a fair bit of code which is uneeded anymore
12:03:03JdGordon.. and it the quickscreen didnt use the option_select stuff that whole file could be removed
12:04:03linuxstbI like the idea of using the list widget for options with a list of values, but am not convinced about using it for integers.
12:04:30safetydanyeah integers I'm not sure about
12:04:34safetydanslider definitely is an option
12:04:37JdGordonneither was i at first, but then i got a bit confused when there was only 1 item under the title...
12:04:58linuxstbIn which case, use a slider?
12:05:14JdGordonyou need to show the actual value also, but i guess that could work
12:05:16linuxstbThat way, a user can see both the min/max values immediately.
12:06:38linuxstbApart from volume, what else is an integer setting?

12:35:38pixelmaJdGordon: not for the rockbox_default wps and the rockbox_default font on Archos screens...
12:36:25pixelmaif there is ID3 information too

12:37:46JdGordoncan you do a small icon instead of the letters?
12:38:01JdGordonI cant think how you could say average any shorter
12:38:05linuxstbpixelma: "av" would probably work.
12:38:09pixelmathe default wps shouldn't be graphixc I think
12:38:38linuxstbBut I don't think I would be happy with it...
12:40:02midkaywhat about just using ~? like ~137kbit.
12:40:19linuxstbThat would work.
12:40:26pixelmaI tried that - it looks odd with the default font
12:40:41pixelmaso I think the only solution is that the line should scroll then
12:40:54linuxstbOr improve the ~ character in the default font - if possible.
12:41:57midkaywell, hm.. how odd exactly? ;)
12:42:13linuxstbDo you need the cbr/vbr indicator at all? Almost all VBR files will be a non-standard bitrate - i.e. not 128/160/192 etc.
12:42:41midkaymight be nice to have..

13:02:42Triple-zhow stable is rocbox for ipod video? (sorry for the noob quastions ;])
13:05:51linuxstbIt's very stable as in it never crashes (at least for me). But the port isn't finished - see
13:06:58JdGordonsafetydan: did i miss something obvious? i just moved id3.c into apps and changed both SOURCES files and did make celan && make and it worked fine?
13:07:11linuxstbDid you compile for hwcodec?
13:07:17Triple-zbattery life is good?
13:07:18JdGordonah, no
13:07:26JdGordonis player hwcodec?
13:07:28safetydanTriple-z, the batter life isn't great yet...
13:07:30safetydanJdGordon, yes
13:07:44linuxstbTriple-z: Around 7-10 hours I believe - so no, not as good as the original firmware.
13:08:09Triple-zis it UMS after you deploy rockbox or what?
13:08:33JdGordonHWCODEC compiled fine
13:08:45linuxstbThe ipod always has been UMS. It's just that Apple's firmware needs the itunes database updating as well in order to find the files.
13:08:57linuxstbRockbox can access the files without a database.
13:09:08linuxstb(or it can create its own database on the fly)
13:09:10safetydanJdGordon, sim or target?
13:09:19JdGordonsafetydan: target...
13:09:23Triple-zso no need for shitty itunes
13:09:25JdGordon99% sure target

13:10:52safetydanclean build?
13:11:06safetydanif it works, move on to replaygain.c then :)
13:11:31JdGordonsafetydan: yup clean build... ok
13:11:31safetydandon't forget the .h files need to move as well
13:11:51JdGordonBAH BUM.... ok, mooving the .h breaks it
13:12:22JdGordonsimple solution is leaving the .h in apps/export?
13:13:42safetydanfirmware code can't/shouldn't call apps code, so if the .c file moves so should the .h
13:15:35linuxstbJdGordon: I tried to move id3.[ch] and related files to apps/ a while ago - I posted a comment to the dev mailing list about the problem I ran into. It's basically hard to move until the hwcodec playback engine is either moved to apps/ or merged with the swcodec playback engine.
13:16:02JdGordoncant or shouldnt? it didnt give any link errors which i thought was odd... but if it has no problems linking we can just do #inlcue "../apps/id3.h" cant we
13:16:20JdGordonlinuxstb: isnt there talk about redoing the playback engine again to moerge the 2 properly?
13:17:31linuxstbYes, Slasheri has mentioned a desire to rewrite the playback engine.
13:18:12JdGordonis doing #include "../apps/id3.h" an acceptable stop-gap untill then?
13:18:53linuxstbI would say no. What do we gain by half-moving it?
13:19:03linuxstb(and breaking the golden rule)
13:19:19JdGordonwe move both files, just 2 paths are broken...
13:20:04 Quit Nibbler (Remote closed the connection)
13:21:15JdGordonjust depends how badly you want id3 and replaygain moved into apps
13:22:04safetydannot badly enough to break the rules
13:23:23safetydanAh well, there's always the 111 bugs that need fixing
13:24:37JdGordonthe replaygaim functions are not used by any code in firmaware/ anyway, s there shoudlnt be a problem moving them
13:27:27JdGordonis it there because it relies on the id3 stuff?
13:28:04 Join fejfighter [0] (
13:28:07linuxstbI thought the hwcodec devices had replaygain support?
13:28:22JdGordonnope, its only swcodec
13:28:41JdGordonunless its in another file... replaygain.c isnt compiled for hwcodec
13:29:11linuxstbAre you sure the id3 tag parsing doesn't rely on the replaygain functions?
13:30:02JdGordonoh, woops.. i did the search after i moved id3.* out of firmware
13:30:03linuxstbid3.c calls the replaygain.c functions - so if id3.c is in firmware/, replaygain.c must be as well.
13:37:00safetydanthough maybe they should be #ifdef'd out for hwcodec
13:38:04safetydanno point parsing tags that aren't used
13:41:06JdGordon is funny...
13:43:31safetydanlinuxstb, which chipsets have hardware equalizer support?
13:43:36*safetydan needs a #define to use
13:44:25safetydanah, HAVE_WM8758 will do fine
13:44:44JdGordonhow about HAV_HW_EQ??
13:45:52safetydanwell at the moment I only know of one chipset with a hardware equalizer

14:11:17webguest36yea it is
14:11:34webguest36rockbox is cool but, on the nano it cuts battery life like in half
14:11:39linuxstbYou can then also delete the rockbox.ipod file and .rockbox folder.
14:12:30webguest36oh yea, I had forgot about those thanks
14:16:05webguest36has anyone else noticed how bad the battery life on the nano is ?
14:16:29S0apeverybody knows the battery life is less than stock on all the ipods.
14:16:55webguest36I could live with less than stock, But I mean it is like un believably bad
14:17:10webguest36It's alot better on my ipod video
14:17:39S0appercentage wise, it should be the same between the models.
14:17:56webguest36oh yea?
14:18:06webguest36maybe it's because on the nano it is using tag cache?
14:18:26linuxstbPeople are getting around 8 hours playback on a Nano I think.
14:18:36webguest36im not getting near that
14:18:47linuxstbWhat kind of files are you playing?
14:18:55excitatoryi definitely get that..

14:21:15S0apAlso, were you using peakmeters, EQ, replaygain, etc?
14:21:31webguest36that was my next Q i have been using alot of colored themes
14:21:31excitatoryi definitely do not even get 4 hours with tag cache on though..
14:21:41webguest36no peakmeters, eq or replay gain
14:21:47webguest36ahh so tagcache is the culprate?
14:22:08linuxstbAll tagcache should do is take up a few hundred KB of the audio buffer. I wouldn't expect that to half the runtime.
14:22:11webguest36thing is since i converted from apple all my music is random file names and I need a database to see what the hell msuic I have

14:25:07webguest36Too be honest on my nano I don't really need any of the rockbox features and the thing I love about my nano is the great battery life so It looks like no rockbox on the nano for me

17:47:59metanickHi folks. I am about to install rockbox on my new IAudio X5. I have placed the x5_fw.bin file from the dual-bootloader on the wiki in my FIRMWARE directory and unzipped the 20060812 build zipfile into the player's root directory. Now I just disconnect the usb, power off and power on, correct? I just want to be sure I'm not about to brick my new player. =:\
17:48:00Terinjokeswell, KaPooT, rockbox uses the same drive mode the orginal ipod firmwire uses
17:48:08S0apKaPooT - If you uninstall itunes and use rockbox you can do that, but even with itunes you can use your ipod as a simple drive.

18:30:48locooh, you mean it's a waste of memory.

21:17:39linuxstbSo perfectly harmless.
21:18:00linuxstbThe piezo is the buzzer inside your ipod that the apple firmware uses to give you an audible click when using the wheel.
21:18:13linuxstbThe piezo patch in Senab's build tries to do the same in Rockbox.
21:18:15niskelokay, yeah I was using that
21:19:03linuxstbIt's always a good idea to reset your settings if you switch between official and unofficial Rockbox builds.
21:19:38niskelThat is what I assumed I was doing when deleting the .rockbox folder
21:19:39niskelso yes
21:19:41niskelmakes sense
21:20:08niskelalso explained why I was always somehow accidentaly deleting all my settings
21:20:16niskelunplugging from usb with hold on
21:21:12linuxstbIf you go into the Manage Settings menu, you can export your settings to a .cfg file. You can just click on that file to load them if they are ever lost.
21:21:25linuxstb(.cfg files are text files, and survive the settings format changing)

21:22:09niskelone other question. is there a way in linux to have it say it is safe to unplug the device?
21:22:21niskelI always unmount and eject but it still says not to disconnect
21:23:37linuxstbI always just unmount and then pull the plug. I can't even see what's on the screen...
