00:00:07 Join Febs [0] (
00:00:59barrywardellObviously, I'll do it in a way that won't affect other builds
00:01:18BagderI think you can
00:01:27Bagderthen others can help out moving it
00:01:40 Quit _hotwire_ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:03:05*Bagder prepares a suggestion for the dev list to spur up some debate:
00:03:19Bagderremoval of support for Archos Player
00:03:37*Paul_The_Nerd gasps
00:03:56[HO]vo|tyou win with the /emote
00:04:34Paul_The_NerdYou could fork it, and if something especially relevant comes along for it, toss it over, but otherwise just support in regarding bugfixes.
00:04:49Bagderyes, we'd do a branch for those who cares
00:04:57Bagderand cut it out from the head branch
00:05:08[HO]vo|twell how you said it, Paul, sounds like what it's kinda like now
00:05:49Paul_The_NerdWell, the way it is now, it gets all new features, and some have to be weighed for binary size increase.
00:06:10Bagderthe player doesn't get many new features
00:06:14linuxstbI thought the FM recorder was the main problem target wrt size?
00:06:17[HO]vo|tso if you come out with something for the x5 you have to backward compatiblilize it to the player
00:06:37Bagderlike what?
00:06:48[HO]vo|ti don't know, i was asking
00:06:58Bagderyou need to understand what the Archos Player is first
00:07:10Bagderwe're talking charcell LCD
00:07:15Bagderand awkward buttons
00:07:22Bagderwith hwcodec
00:07:44BagderI can't remember when we added any new feature for it
00:08:47Bagderbut tagcache is one of those features arguably not even sensible for those devices
00:08:59[HO]vo|thow do you think that?
00:09:10[HO]vo|twell, why, rather than how
00:09:14linuxstbIf it's stored on disk?
00:09:29Bagderdue to the slooooooooowness
00:10:14[HO]vo|tTest on my iAudio x5, from full charge playing 66 songs of 192kbps mp3 with 10 second caption backlight (so that's total 20 seconds of backlight for every songchange, 5.5 min song length avg). First day, no headphones plugged on volume -24, 13h 6m; Second day, stock headphones plugged on volume -6, 13h 26m.
00:10:59SoapI'd call that a wash.
00:11:08SoapThanks for testing, though!
00:11:35Soapno winner - even - equal.
00:11:56piif this patch were to be commited i think it would work fot the player:
00:12:24amiconnBagder: Why do you wasnt to remove support for the player????
00:12:27[HO]vo|taha understood. the "first day" was only the second full power cycle it was through, so i bet i'm still breaking in the battery... if that's possible?
00:12:57amiconnI don't see any reason to remove it.
00:12:59Bagderamiconn: to simplify code for the rest, to give player owners better rockbox
00:13:07Soapsome people say so, but there are lots of "voodoo" beliefs about batteries, and I haven't seen any hard numbers.
00:13:20BagderI don't see any reason to keep it actually
00:13:35amiconnRemoving it from head means it won't get any new features
00:13:42Bagderof course
00:13:48[HO]vo|tSoap: well i'll do another one tonight as soon as it charges and maybe i'll show you some numbers.
00:13:48Paul_The_NerdSoap: There are hard numbers, but I don't believe for Lithiom Ion batteries like these.
00:13:56amiconnRockbox works on player, and it works well, and stable.
00:14:02Bagderbut can anyone name three people that use bleeding edge on Archos Player?
00:14:09amiconnThat can't be said about any of the new targets...
00:14:22Bagderbut it will continue working
00:14:28Bagdereven when we move it out
00:14:38amiconnIt also has no problems accomodating (not too demanding) new features
00:14:54amiconnThe binary is around 160KB right now
00:15:03Bagderit is a cumbersome target that alone adds lots of complexity
00:15:24amiconnThe buttons are easier to work with than, say, ipod, or Ondio
00:15:51[HO]vo|tMmmm gave me a link earlier today to a patch he wanted me to try - but the page is down (
00:15:55*preglow thinks he supports this notion
00:15:56amiconnAnd there's always room for improvement
00:15:56Bagderplayer owners just don't want or need what we do these days
00:16:11Bagderheck, nobody knows if we break the player builds
00:16:14 Join Rockxy [0] (
00:16:20amiconnI will always know
00:16:25amiconnI have a player, and use it
00:16:45 Quit Rockxy (Client Quit)
00:16:48Bagderyou miss my point
00:16:50amiconnIt's actually a very convenient device for in-car use
00:16:50BagderYOU do yes
00:16:54 Join webguest00 [0] (
00:16:55BagderYOU do a lot of stuff
00:17:18amiconnThere's still that request to support cyrillic
00:17:18BagderI don't think that is a reason enough
00:17:46amiconnI have ideas how that can be done, and even have the beginnings of replacement tables
00:18:16amiconnVery possible since the introduction of unicode
00:18:28Mikachucan't you just check the server logs how many people download the archos builds?
00:18:36preglowhave we got any idea how many users there are?
00:18:46preglowor any statistics on downloads for player, for example
00:19:03Bgerhey, speaking of cyrillic, what about adding cyr and greek to the default font ?
00:19:23Mikachuand japanese and chinese and arabic and...
00:19:27amiconnBg3r: I'd rather remove any support of non-ascii from the default
00:19:52BgerMikachu: 26 letters, not ~ 10^3 and up ..
00:19:59amiconnAll user screens should be adapted to work with the user font
00:20:34amiconnThe default should only be used for debug stuff and panic messages
00:20:57Bgerhm, u're right
00:22:46 Quit lorijho ("Lost terminal")
00:23:12Bgerbut then again ... we need a way to prevent switching to some language if the user font doesn't have glyphs for it ..
00:24:04amiconnpreglow, Bagder: The download stats for archos builds are probably not very representative. People tend to go for 'stable' builds, and since we didn't do a release for quite some time, there's little reason to download a new one
00:24:26Bagderand since we don't add anything new for the Player, there's no other reason either...
00:24:27amiconn...unless they're aware of the new features and want to try these
00:24:31preglowit would still be an interesting figure
00:24:35***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:24:49[HO]vo|ti agree, back when i had a recorder v2 i would download a daily build maybe once a month
00:24:49amiconnBagder: Huh? There's loads of new stuff for all targets since 2.5...
00:24:56Paul_The_NerdWhy not include the Player up to the next release, and see how many downloads it gets there, before considering removing it from the head?
00:25:13Bagderamiconn: there's _some_ new stuff for the Player, yes, but ask any random player owner on the lists what they use...
00:25:56preglowstill, i'd love to see people's thoughts on the matter
00:26:08preglowso an ml message would be interesting
00:26:32Bagderyes, gonna post it tomorrow
00:26:41amiconnFurthermore, I don't see where the 'lots' of added complexity are
00:27:00amiconnThere's some more complexity because of the charcell lcd, but that's it
00:27:10Bagderits different enough to cause problems, more so than the average new target
00:27:33preglowand it's almost certainly alone among all our current and future targets in having a charcell dislpay
00:27:52Bgerwhat's the chance of getting a new target with charcell lcd ?
00:27:57BagderI think the reasons all taken together is what counts, not each individual one
00:28:01preglowpretty much zero
00:28:06amiconnI think the ipod lcd remotes are charcell
00:28:26amiconn...or at least are controlled like charcell, via the accessory protocol
00:28:30Bgeryeah, i'm mainly thinking about remotes ..
00:29:11preglowcharcell displays on daps should be outlawed
00:29:24Bagderbesides, amiconn is the only dev on this unit so removing support for it will let amiconn work on other targets more ;-)
00:29:52amiconnRemoving one of my targets will most likely make me disappointed, and work less on everything rockbox
00:30:12Bagderit'll only be branched off
00:30:24Bagderor rather "it would"
00:30:27amiconnpreglow: Charcell displays are efficient information display devices imho
00:30:41preglowamiconn: how so any more than a bitmap one?
00:30:49pregloweverything a charcell does, bitmap displays can too
00:30:52amiconnYou need to move less data
00:31:00preglowyes, sure, but that's not really a major concern for me
00:31:16preglowthey're efficient in that way, but it's by no means the biggest resource hog for ordinary use
00:31:51amiconnThen why does scrolling through lists cause skipping on ipod, esp. video? ;)
00:32:10preglowdoes it still?
00:32:14amiconnyes, sure
00:32:15preglowi've only got a nano
00:32:26Soapskips bigtime when scolling.
00:32:27amiconnI've read multiple reports about that
00:32:35preglowa bit of a moot point anyway, if we were to update only as much information as a charcell contains, we wouldn't be skipping
00:32:47preglowbiggest charcell i 've got here is four lines
00:33:08preglowbut sure, they are efficient
00:33:22Soapand (not tested) larger fonts seem to make the skipping worse, which seems counterintuitive.
00:33:23amiconnBut if we would update just as much information as on a charcell display, you wouldn't be able to read anything

00:33:42 Join San [0] (
00:34:22amiconnBig charcell (16charsx4 lines) is 64bytes. Now how many pixels are that on a 16bit colour bitmap display?
00:35:22preglowbut anyway
00:35:25amiconn(that's another reason why I don't like colour lcds that much. The primary one is non-readability w/o backlight)
00:35:33preglowthe reason i don't like charcells is just good old lack of flexibility
00:35:41preglownot any resource issues
00:35:59preglowi like being able to code eq graph plots
00:36:08amiconnIt's debatable whether this kind of flexibility is good or bad
00:36:11linuxstbI have to say I can't see any problem with keeping support for the player - as people have said, almost no new developments work on it anyway, so it's no work to support...
00:36:17preglowamiconn: how can it be bad?
00:36:28preglowi mean, possibly, at all
00:36:51pregloware you saying swcodec is bad as well?
00:36:53Mikachuwhat is wrong with that patch on the tracker that makes the scrolling code update less lines?
00:37:07 Quit evilnick ()
00:37:22Mikachuit has bitrotted so i couldn't try it
00:37:28linuxstbMikachu: Probably nothing - I think it's just been forgotten...
00:37:32amiconnThe flexibility of bitmap displays causes developers (including myself) to work on graphical gimmicks instead of core functionality
00:37:34mirakhem what kind of operation mmx and such bring ? Is emac comparable to that or really not ?
00:37:39BagderMikachu: diffenbach's ?
00:37:44Mikachui'm not sure whose
00:37:52linuxstbBagder: Yes, I think so.
00:38:11Mikachuyeah, it is
00:38:12Bagderwe gave him CVS access to let him work on his things
00:38:30linuxstbIs he earHertz?
00:38:32Bagderso I would guess he ran out of time

00:39:57Bgernite all
00:40:02 Quit Bger ("Leaving")
00:40:16amiconnThere's another idea how to improve update speed - let the drawing code track which parts of the screen changed (a 'dirty rectangle') and have an update function that updates only this part
00:40:18preglowamiconn: so you're just plain opposed to everything that doesn't involve good old-fashioned music playback?
00:40:56Febsamiconn, you're assuming that those developers who work on graphics would work on core functionality if they couldn't work on graphics.
00:41:06FebsMaybe they simply wouldn't work on Rockbox at all.
00:41:07preglowand i wouldn't, that's for sure
00:41:07amiconnNot at all. But working, reliable playback should still be the primary goal
00:41:27preglowi'm still in this for the fun
00:41:33preglowand coding playback isn't my idea of fun
00:42:30BagderI'm in it purely for all the profit
00:42:36amiconnOne of my ideas of fun is pushing limits - and this way coding for archos is more fun than for any of the new targets
00:42:37preglowand the chicks
00:43:29linuxstbYou can push the limits of the new players quite easily - video for example.

00:46:40 Join _Lucretia_ [0] (
00:47:16preglowthe mas dsp core is designed by people with a penchant for whisky
00:47:16amiconnBtw, there's a NODO in the manual for archos which is no longer true
00:47:50preglowit's hard to program even by dsp chip standards
00:50:06linuxstbSpeaking of the NODO, I'm not sure why support for alternative filesystems is there - IMO, NODO should be for things which are technically impossible, not things we don't want to do.

00:52:41preglowlinuxstb: definitely agreed
00:53:10amiconnalternative filesystems in NODO is correct for archos
00:53:37amiconnThe archos loader cannot boot from anything else than FAT32 (FAT16 for Ondio)
00:53:54Mikachuyou can't partition it?
00:53:58amiconnYou can
00:53:59linuxstbBut can't we replace the Archos loader?
00:54:11amiconnlinuxstb: Only if the unit is flashable
00:54:53linuxstbBut as Mikachu said, even for non-flashable devices, you could have a small FAT32 "boot partition", and the rest of the disk in any format.
00:55:25amiconn*some* players, *most* recorders, probably all fm/v2 recorders, and surely all Ondios are flashable
00:55:55amiconnYou can make a non-flashable unit flashable if you are able to change a TSOP32 chip

02:39:24samnmaxhello. i just installed RockBox on my iPod Mini (with a broken screen) and the Voice functions have saved me from buying a whole new iPod....I was wondering if somebody could tell me before I go looking everywhere for it if an iTrip mini would still work after RockBox is installed? thanks
02:42:36coobas long as rockbox kicks out power
02:42:38scorcheit would not
02:42:54coobit should, but i don't knwo if it does
02:43:00samnmaxthen i will test it
02:43:09scorchethe only fm transmitters that will work with rockbox atm, are ones that plug into just the headphone port
02:43:10Paul_The_NerdIt probably doesn't at this time
02:43:18coobmight need ot tweak rockbox to turn ppower on on the pins

02:43:56samnmaxcan anyone reccomend me to an FM transmitter that plugs only into the phones port?
02:44:12Paul_The_NerdAny FM transmitter that says it works with non-iPod players.
02:44:18samnmaxoh ok
02:44:21Bloody_Sorcererbelkin tunecast FM?
02:44:23Paul_The_NerdUnless it's made for some other specific player only.
02:44:33Bloody_Sorcererand argh my cygwin pooped the bed.
02:45:40scorcheBloody_Sorcerer: from the looks of it, it should work with rockbox

03:33:24Soapuse a LAME preset with an average of ~192 and it will be better still, and can be smaller. 192kbps is a waste of bits for many samples.

03:44:10[HO]vo|tI have heard that converting files between or even at the same bitrates damages the quality of the song - i remember a test sample of some Metallica song that was run through the same conversion 666 times and it came out sounding like it was like 16kbps
03:44:56[HO]vo|tso i'm a bit skeptical of converting files to save a little bit of space, even my 320kbps songs i don't really want to touch
03:45:40Bloody_Sorcerergeneration loss occurs in lossy formats even if the quality levels stay the same

03:47:55[HO]vo|ti have a few albums on my computer as flac, i think i am going to convert to 192kbps vbr mp3 - would save me mp3 player battery life as well as storage
03:51:14Paul_The_NerdConverting from FLAC to anything is the same as converting from a CD to it.
03:51:55Bloody_Sorcerer^^true dat^^
03:52:14Paul_The_NerdOr at least, the same as converting from what it was before FLAC. So MP3->FLAC->MP3 is the same as MP3->MP3. CD->FLAC->WAV->ALAC->APE->SHN->MP3 is the same as CD->MP3 as they're all lossless (assuming you're doing uncompressed WAV)

04:06:21[HO]vo|tis there anything on the web page that references the ipod?
04:06:37Paul_The_NerdXavierGr: It is confusing because they keep referring to it as "iBoy" controls, which isn't what the patch is named or anything. But I happened to know of the patch, which is in fact based off the iBoy control scheme.
04:06:47[HO]vo|t < webpage for keybank
04:06:50Paul_The_NerdWithout it applied, Rockboy is nearly unusable on the iPod.
04:07:33XavierGrOk thanks for clearing that up
04:08:09XavierGrSo in 5 hours you are going to move the new posts (3 pages) to the new forums?
04:08:32XavierGrI want to help but it is 5 am here, I don't know if I will be awake until then

04:10:03XavierGrthat accel guy in the forums is really annoying
04:10:14scorche[HO]vo|t: or a direct deposit
04:10:24Paul_The_NerdXavierGr: I expected many people to be asleep while I was doing it. The idea was that the majority of users are asleep, so that it'll inconvenience the fewest number of people.
04:10:31XavierGrhis last post was quite rude
04:10:53XavierGrPaul_The_Nerd: yeah you choosed the right time
04:10:54[HO]vo|tscorche: in my experience direct deposit takes like 3 or 4 weeks to set up, but maybe i just have had slow companies
04:11:22scorcheit just says a direct deposit transaction
04:11:39SoapI'm assuming you could directly deposit from another bank account.
04:11:48scorcheas am i
04:12:16[HO]vo|tscorche: i think it's referring to direct deposit as in, you give your employer your bank account number and your paycheck is direct deposited
04:12:48scorcheeven if that is the case, if you have friends, that is hardly difficult to do
04:12:57[HO]vo|thow so?
04:13:57scorchewe can call key bank to find out also...
04:14:10scorche(thanks skype for free calls!)
04:14:29scorchein fact, i will do that now...
04:14:45[HO]vo|twell in any case, thanks a lot for the heads up, i will definitely stop in at keybank and inquire about opening an account and getting a credit card
04:15:44Soapthis is a business checking account - I see nothing about requiring direct deposit or a CC. I see a requirement to sign up for online bill-pay and pay at least one bill with the service.
04:15:56[HO]vo|tplus, you don't even have to pay the $25 early termination fee if you get the "free checking" account, just keep a positive balance for 6 months
04:16:06[HO]vo|tmaybe we're looking at different offers?
04:16:15scorcheSoap: i think this is different
04:16:34[HO]vo|tyes! there are two different offers, one for buisness and one for personal

05:41:55Recorder20v1UserSomeone had a patch, but the link on the forum is outdated
05:42:04sharpeI would suggest the term 'accessed' rather than 'hit.'

06:54:06COmputoman * doom1.wad: Doom (Shareware)
06:54:06COmputoman * doom.wad: Doom
06:54:14Paul_The_NerdCOmputoman: You can only use additional levels with commercial copies of Doom. The shareware doom1.wad that's linked will not work with addons. Freedoom will though. Also, rockdoom.wad is required for anything to run.
06:55:12COmputomanI downloaded rockdoom and i have a commercial version of doom im pretty sure

07:10:20gotribegoi have a question
07:10:36gotribegomy ipod (5G, 60 gig with rockbox) was plugged into my computer
07:11:15gotribegomy computer froze up so I had to turn the power off and turn the computer on again... did that have any negative effects on the ipod?
07:11:50COmputomanIf you were transfering stuff, yes
07:12:00COmputomanIf not, maybe, but probbably not
07:12:19sharpeProbably just the file it was copying at the time either doesn't exist, or is corrupted.
07:12:26gotribegocause the computer froze like a min or two after i connected the ipod to the computer
07:12:31gotribegoit was running "autoplay"
07:12:48scorchethen likely, no damage was caused
07:13:13gotribegoeven though it froze up while autoplay was running?
07:13:23scorcheautoplay is just something windows does
07:13:40gotribegois there any way to check the ipod to see if it has any errors ?

07:15:56gotribegomy computer froze up just as the ipod/windows was running AutoPlay
07:16:15gotribegois this something i should be worrying about?
07:16:22sharpegotribego: I wouldn't.
07:16:22Paul_The_NerdThe same as their: If it was in the process of writing to the iPod, there is a chance of having a corrupt file.
07:16:51scorchehowever, autoplay does not write to the ipod
07:17:05Paul_The_NerdYeah, autoplay usually means it's being read from
07:17:19gotribegocause the ipod was showing "do not disconnect" message
07:17:24sharpeHaha, so that's what the 'play' part means. :)
07:17:26gotribegowhen I had to force the computer off
07:17:27scorcheit always shows that
07:17:50scorche...when in disk mode
07:17:56gotribegou guys are familiar with sfv files right?
07:18:13gotribegoif all the sfv files "check out" fine, that means im good to go correct?
07:18:56sharpeThat'd be my guess.
07:20:04gotribegoif there WAS a problem, would it be apparent?
07:20:30sharpeYes, probably failing to match the CRC given, and the calculated one.
07:20:41gotribegooh i mean, the ipod
07:20:47gotribegowould the ipod work correct
07:21:10sharpeWhat do SFV files have to do with your iPod?
07:21:24scorchesfv only verifies the actual files...not the state of your ipod
07:21:36scorchesharpe: compare checksums of the files
07:22:07sharpescorche: eh?
07:22:13gotribegoim asking, if my ipod got fucked up by the computer freezing while autoplay was going, would it be easy to know that it is f'ed up?
07:22:44scorchesharpe: to make sure that the files are not corrupted/changed
07:22:49Paul_The_NerdLook, we've told you what the problems that can reasonably occur are.

08:08:27amiconnE.g. a mis-flashed archos is fixable with software and a small hardware mod (the serial port + uart boot mod)
08:08:39Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: If it can be fixed without opening the player physically, then it's not bricked.
08:08:48Paul_The_NerdI consider something like that small hardware mod, a part of the process of un-bricking.
08:09:02Paul_The_NerdBut that's my personal definition.
08:09:15BagderI'd say that's a pretty good definition

08:42:42sharpemidkay: I would assume so.
08:42:50Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Yes
08:43:27midkaysharpe: there's no possible way to NEARLY convey my entire aggravation and feelings about your worthlessness here...
08:43:45midkayPaul_The_Nerd: have you considered a patch discussion kind of forum?
08:44:02midkayPaul_The_Nerd: i was just looking for the thread on the new menu design and when I couldn't find it right away I thought something like that might be nice..
08:44:27midkaya foru, for WIP patches, designs, etc.. that the menu changes would be a good example of..
08:45:21scorcheand make it clear that "this is not a place to get a patch committed", as i am sure people would love to go on with their usual "i like this patch, can we get it committed?"
08:46:00midkayscorche: so "don't express your feelings about patches here"?
08:46:11scorchesomething like that
08:46:28sharpemidkay: So pretty much an extended flyspray comments section for the patch?
08:46:46Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: I think Flyspray is suitable for discussion of patches as is.
08:46:48midkaysharpe: flyspray isn't for discussion..
08:47:03midkay.. in my eyes. :) it's annoying.. i mean..
08:47:09midkayyou can't "browse" it like the forums..
08:47:12Bagderand people already discuss patches fine in the forum
08:47:15midkaynot really. you can't see the latest updates, etc..
08:47:22midkayBagder: in miscellaneous forums, right.
08:47:30midkayi think it would be nice to converge all patch discussion into one place.
08:47:32Bagderyes, in the one related to what kind of patch it is
08:47:35Paul_The_NerdI'll create a Flyspray board.
08:47:41midkayso you can go to one place to read about potential changes, et cetera..
08:47:56Bagderwhy not go to the plugin one and read about plugins?
08:47:59midkaywhy not? maybe you want to see what people are working on?
08:48:11Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: It's true, plugin-style patches would be best suited in the plugins board
08:48:11Bagderand the associated plugin patches people talk about
08:48:18midkayBagder: because then you get a mix of "doom isn't working" and "how do i use metronome" and OCCASIONALLY a "i'm working on this".
08:48:31Bagdersince those are all about plugins
08:48:38midkayso you can't simply go to once place to read about deviations from the plain jane builds.
08:48:42JdGordondos anyone ant to doubl check my settings context rework before i commit it?
08:49:03Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: And "Doom is not working" and "how do I use metronome" could both be the results of a bug in the plugin, rather than just user stupidity.
08:49:08Paul_The_NerdEither way, it consolidates them in one place.
08:49:19amiconnPaul_The_Nerd: Shouldn't the 'Spam' board be invisible to me?
08:49:23 Quit midgey34 (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
08:49:26midkayPaul_The_Nerd: i don't care about what they are. they clutter up the readability of development.
08:49:45Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Development essential stuff should go on Flyspray anyway
08:50:00midkay.. because it's so easy to get around in Flyspray, right....
08:50:01BagderI strongly agree with that
08:50:10Bagderthe forum is mainly a user-support thing
08:50:11Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: With the exception of like, JdGordon's post about the button changes, which belongs in "Announcements" by the new standard.
08:50:35Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: You're a developer. You get to see all boards. I can hide it from developers. I'll go ahead ' n do that before I reopen the forums.
08:50:42midkayBagder: hm, i like the idea of being able to just discuss things...
08:51:06Bagderbut devs can't be forced to use the forums while we think devs more or less must use flyspray
08:51:13Paul_The_NerdI will admit that the ability to see new posts on the forum is easier if you don't want to get emails from flyspray
08:51:16Bagderso if you truly want to reach the dev, you use flyspray
08:51:29Bagderif you want to discuss among users, go forum
08:51:38*JdGordon prefers forums to FS
08:51:42JdGordonfor discussion...
08:51:44midkayBagder: that's rather off-putting, since there are plenty of patches with no comments or anything at all..
08:51:54BagderI'm stating the reality
08:51:59Bagderyou can like it or not
08:52:03midkayBagder: and i'm stating the possibilities. :)
08:52:06Bagderthe fourms are qute daunting
08:52:14Bagderwe can expect devs to even try to keep up with them
08:52:19Bagdercan not
08:52:19Paul_The_NerdWe could have a "Flyspray" forum in the development category, and require that topic titles be FS#XXXX and the title of the flyspray entry?
08:52:19midkayit's considered lucky to have a dev even look at your patch..
08:52:24midkayBagder: sure, devs use flyspray.
08:52:31midkaybut for discussion or end user suggestions/review, why not Forums?
08:52:45Bagdernow read what I said again
08:52:58midkayif you just want to say "hey i'm working on this game here's a screenshot what do you think" you can get lots of good replies from end users who don't get emails on flyspray, etc...
08:52:58BagderI did not dismiss that
08:53:20Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: But why can't someone just say that in the plugins category?
08:53:30midkayBagder: you said "if you want to discuss among users, go forums" -> that's exactly what i'm suggesting. create a FORUM for discussion.
08:53:47BagderI just don't see the need for a separate forum for it
08:53:55Bagderpeople talk patches a lot already
08:54:11midkayPaul_The_Nerd: they can. i just feel it might be nicer to have a dedicated patches forum for people who think "hm, what's going on in the general world of development and what are people working on" rather than saying "what new plugins are being written?" and have to go through pages of questions to reach one WIP plugin thread.
08:54:35Bagdermidkay: but the differences between those are very fuzzy
08:54:45midkayBagder: fuzzy?
08:54:54Bagdera "doom doesn't work" could very well lead to a bug report that leads to a patch that ...
08:55:06Bagdereverything plugin-related
08:55:09midkaywho cares about doom bugfix patches?
08:55:12Paul_The_NerdHow 'bout a "Work in Progress" forum in the "Development" section?
08:55:16midkayif you're starting a new plugin or new major change.
08:55:19Bagdermidkay: you
08:55:26midkayPaul_The_Nerd: that sounds like what i'm getting at.
08:55:29Paul_The_NerdThat would cover both plugins, things like the WMA codec, any ongoing work that users want to discuss?
08:55:33midkayBagder: no, that's exactly what i'm against.
08:55:45midkayi don't want a forum for "hey i fixed a tiny bug in doom".
08:55:48Bagdermidkay: ok, so what tracker entries would be discussed?
08:55:52Bagderwould you filter them?
08:56:02Bagderwhen is it deemed ok?
08:56:03midkayi want a forum for "i'm undertaking a massive project to revamp the UI" or "write a new plugin".
08:56:08midkaythe new menu system is a prime example.
08:56:24midkayBagder: how about if it's not a small trivial bugfix and it's worth actually discussing/improving?
08:56:32JdGordonyes, a WIP subforum with 1 thread per topic would be great..
08:56:32BagderI just don't see any proper distinction between when and when not
08:56:38midkayBagder: no posts about "i just made a bugfix here's a link commit pls kthx"..
08:56:50midkayBagder: that seems very specific to me. if it's worth *discussing* then you'd post.
08:57:07Bagderpeople want to discuss even tiny doom fixes
08:57:21midkayBagder: how so?
08:57:22Bagderand besides
08:57:24midkaywhat is there to discuss?
08:57:31Bagderfor some people, a tiny doom fix is a major undertaking
08:57:45midkayBagder: "tiny" cancels out "major".
08:57:49Paul_The_NerdOne possibility is this:
08:57:54Bagdertiny for you, major for others
08:58:20daurn|laptopa doom fix is an undertaking
08:58:30Paul_The_NerdHrm. Nevermind
08:58:36BagderI'm just saying that without a proper and clear distinction and separation, people will post all over anyway and we'd gain nothing with separating forums
08:58:47Paul_The_NerdI like the idea of being able to request user feedback
08:58:49Bagderjust lose since we'll have users scattered
08:58:54Paul_The_NerdBut I think "Announcements" covers most of that.
08:59:10amiconnI must say that I usually don't look at the forums at all these days. It's simply too much to read
08:59:27midkayis Bagder just against it or am I not clear or crazy or what? if it's something *big* - new PLUGIN, new MENU, new FEATURE, new MODIFICATION - that is up for discussion like "how does this look?" or "what do you think if the menus did this instead of this?" - it warrants a post. if it's a BUGFIX that's a commit-and-go deal (or comments like "what's the best way to increase the doom_x variable over time, or is this the cleanest way to fix this),
08:59:27midkayNO post.
08:59:30amiconnI only check a thread in case someone is pointing me to it
08:59:35midkayBagder: ^^ is that not 100% clear?
08:59:40JdGordonannouncments shold be just for RB notices and all topics closed no?
08:59:43Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: How do you enforce that easily?
08:59:51midkayPaul_The_Nerd: "doom bugfix" gets deleted.
08:59:53Bagdermidkay: no
09:00:00BagderI find it clear as mud
09:00:06midkayif the user has something worthwhile and requests discussion, then it's worthwhile..
09:00:15Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: "Major" is very subjective. "Worthwhile" is too.
09:00:19Bagdersince then half of all the posts wouldn't fit there and would need to be in the plugin section
09:00:19midkayBagder: alright, so i guess we remain flyspray-forumless.
09:00:23midkayalright alright.
09:00:37Bagderso there would be plugin discussions about patches in several forums anyway
09:00:37Paul_The_NerdI think that "Announcements" covers the need to receive user feedback on major things.
09:00:51midkayannouncements? aren't those "official" announcements?
09:00:57Paul_The_NerdNot just official
09:01:02Paul_The_NerdFor example, I could've moved A_M's post there.
09:01:12Paul_The_NerdAnyone can reply to them, but only Developer+ can start a topic there
09:01:24midkayhow do users get the ability to post announcements? "Announcement: I just got my iPod!" -> "Now what are some good hacks to install?"
09:01:34midkayso users can't post announcements... hm..
09:01:37Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Any one of us will be able to move posts there.
09:01:59midkayseems rather limiting on the user, but never mind..
09:02:14Paul_The_NerdWell, you either filter out too many, or too few.
09:02:30BagderI don't see that being any particularly useful idea either
09:02:42midkayforget i said anything.. whatever happens will happen.
09:02:46Bagdersince the announce-threads will be ordinary threads in two hours
09:02:48Paul_The_NerdBe right back. While y'all discuss, I'm shutting down the forums now.
09:02:58Bagderand then they'll be identical to the ones in the plugin forum

09:04:07Paul_The_NerdThat was the "One hour" announcement an hour ago
09:04:29sharpeOh, right the two am time...
09:04:30Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Most of you don't have the power to delete posts. That's where you can "move" them if you feel that they're horribly outdated and can be removed. Like "OMG THE WIKI IS GONE"
09:05:08midkayalright, because the first one i see in here makes me want to gouge out someone's eyes.. "Rockword for ipod" whose content is "@".
09:05:23sharpemidkay: I moved that one there.
09:05:38midkaysharpe: that's really not interesting.
09:05:58sharpemidkay: I really don't care.
09:06:16scorchePaul_The_Nerd: time for moving first 3 pages yet?
09:06:19midkaysharpe: so why did you say anything? idiot..

09:07:29midkaysharpe: stop directing messages at me..
09:07:44sharpeI'll do some of the iPod posts...
09:08:07Paul_The_NerdI'll tackle general discussion then.
09:08:31midkayi'll go for the x5 boards, then..
09:08:34JdGordonwhich forum is not being tackled? ill get to work
09:08:51midkaywhichever we didn't just list?
09:09:18sharpemidkay: That is completely redundant.

09:09:52midkayPaul_The_Nerd: no redirection topics, i guess?

09:10:56sharpeThis is kind of funny for a title... "iPod Nano, Video: Jon_'s "JonBuild" Build"
09:12:46midkayPaul_The_Nerd: so what about model-specific questions? this one is about USB charging on the X5 and whether it's supported at all or even by rockbox..

09:14:21sharpeJust making sure, since the only other thing it's called in his post is 'iPod Experimental' and that was discussed about calling everything experimental before...
09:14:48Paul_The_NerdWell, it could be "Senab's Experimental Build" but I think he dropped the experimental

09:16:28scorche<scorche``> Thank You for your pleasant response.......This must be the communist forum......................
09:16:28scorche<scorche``> Yes it is. Most communists rename their MP3 tracks with the track number in front. In fact, Lenin often spoke about it in his glory days.
09:16:53Paul_The_NerdI'm putting stuff like discussion of an external TagCache updating program in "General Rockbox Discussion" as it seems to me external software doesn't belong in anything else
09:17:06 Join petur [0] (
09:19:39midkayi think we need to start going through and adjusting the titles of some of the posts in Hardware to clarify the model..
09:20:06midkaysince they were originally posted in X5/H100/whatever forums the title didn't need to be clear, but now it's a jumble of different models asking inspecific questions.
09:21:07Paul_The_NerdIf you feel like editing topics, it's possible to do while moving them rather easily.
09:21:21Paul_The_NerdI think just adding in the model name, like X5: Original Topic should cover most of it.
09:21:37midkayyes, exactly.
09:22:04JdGordonis anyone watching the new subforums as they get populated?
09:24:36sharpePaul_The_Nerd: Would you say discussing an idea for a plugin is good enough for the Plugin forum?
09:24:46midkay.. why not? where else?
09:24:56midkayPaul_The_Nerd: did you just rename User interface to add "and Voice"?
09:25:04*Paul_The_Nerd renames "Getting Started" to "Getting Started and Compiling"
09:25:18midkaycan i ask why?
09:25:22Paul_The_NerdIt is technically the Voice UI.
09:25:28scorcheYeah...i had moved many voice topics there before
09:25:31midkayuser interface kind of .. encompasses voice UI..
09:25:42Paul_The_NerdYeah, but that's not so clear to Joe Average
09:25:50Paul_The_NerdThey might consider it "Audio Playback" for example.
09:26:04midkayhm. alright. :)
09:27:22*Bagder is flashing LEDs like a mad man
09:27:53*petur shuts his eyes
09:27:56JdGordonq's like does rb have mp4... general discussion or playback?
09:27:59Bagderyah, work stuff
09:28:12midkayJdGordon: is that the trash post i moved to "to be deleted"?
09:28:26JdGordonare u in h300 also?
09:28:30scorcheplayback imo...if anything
09:28:38*Bagder writes driver code for a pci controler in linux 2.6 on a mips core
09:28:45midkayJdGordon: no, nm..
09:28:55Paul_The_Nerd"Does Rockbox support <format>?" goes in general discussion.
09:29:10Paul_The_NerdI don't really consider that a question about playback, but rather a question about Rockbox itself.
09:29:36midkayPaul_The_Nerd: why not audio playback?
09:29:40JdGordonthats what i thought.. jst checking
09:29:43midkayit pertains to what formats of *audio* you can play..
09:29:47 Join LinusN [0] (
09:30:12Paul_The_NerdI think in my head there's a difference between "Can Rockbox do X" and "How do I do X in Rockbox?" one being answered with "You should read the manual" and the second being a valid question.
09:30:24Paul_The_NerdBut... I dunno
09:30:29Paul_The_NerdI guess it is also a question about playback.
09:30:40amiconnHmm. The X5 remote transfer is showing the same frequency limit as the iriver one. Working at 112MHz, not working at 124MHz
09:31:00amiconn(the high-speed routine)
09:31:11JdGordonPaul_The_Nerd: i guess you would have done this already if it was... but.. is it possible to turn of auomatically checking the "post a redirctor" checkmark?
09:31:27midkayPaul_The_Nerd: i think rockbox general covers a lot, but i also think "does rockbox support this" is a tad more audio-related than general..
09:31:29Paul_The_NerdJdGordon: I'd have to tweak the PHP code, I think. I'd rather not do that for a minor thing.
09:31:38Paul_The_NerdJdGordon: Actually, I think midkay's right. Go with "Playback"
09:31:46amiconnHave to use non-highspeed when boosted then
09:31:46Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Yeah, I think you're right actually
09:31:52*scorche coughs
09:31:55midkayPaul_The_Nerd: gotcha..
09:31:57JdGordon... too late.. it will be about 3 pages deep b the im we r done

09:36:47Paul_The_NerdJdGordon: I was just looking at the last post on the third page before I started.
09:36:47scorcheJdGordon: if your browser supports tabs, it is handy to have the three pages in separate tabs, and then make separate tabs for each topic
09:37:17midkaysomeone else can do the rest of X5. :)

09:37:28Paul_The_NerdJdGordon: For H300, July 27 will work. That's when the oldest one to be moves is in H100
09:37:34Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: How far did you have left?
09:37:45midkayPaul_The_Nerd: i moved like.. 20 maybe.. i don't know. :)
09:37:53Paul_The_NerdIt's hard for someone to take over for you...

09:38:28midkayi probably did around one page.
09:39:05Paul_The_NerdJdGordon: It's 20 per page, unless you've changed the default
09:39:12Paul_The_NerdOur goal is 60 per forum, I suppose.
09:39:48JdGordon:'( 3 pages doe sound excessi tho... having a cut off date is nicer
09:40:20sharpePaul_The_Nerd: Hmm. What about a post about a new build, that I've already moved to the unsupported builds forum? maybe merge the two?
09:40:48Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: Merging is good.
09:41:13Paul_The_NerdA cutoff date makes a little more sense, I suppose.

10:05:23Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Isn't the alarm a feature of the RTC? If so, I'd say hardware.
10:05:40Paul_The_NerdIf it's alarm in the sense of waking up the unit from powerdown, like I hear some players can.
10:05:43midkayPaul_The_Nerd: it is, but it's just a matter of porting the Rockbox alarm functionality..
10:06:31Paul_The_NerdI think it's still hardware since it relates to a particular chip.

10:13:52*Paul_The_Nerd notes that yet another person apparently didn't read the manual.

10:14:48Cho03yeah i have read that one
10:14:48linuxstbMaybe we should do the same as the Archos devices - detect when a user is holding MENU+SELECT and initiate a shutdown.
10:14:58Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: That's fine.
10:15:10midkayk, thx.
10:15:23Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: I'm not *too* concerned about old topics, since really even with the one month cutoff a lot of these won't ever get read again, but clarification is nice.

10:17:11midkaythis one has no indication in the title or posts where it came from or what model it's for. the only hint i have is that it pertains to FM radio, so it's like h100/h300/X5/fmr..

10:28:53dan_alinuxstb: Yes to both.
10:30:25preglowdepends how many of them are threadsafe, though
10:30:35dan_aThere is a complete kernel running on the second core, and switch_thread() runs on each core.
10:30:57dan_apreglow: what threads might not be threadsafe?
10:37:05dan_aThere may be special requirements to run threads that communicate between the cores (because of cache concurrency) but once I've got the work I've done so far committed, I'll have a think about ways to work around that.

12:26:02kloshm is it planned to be supported in future
12:26:35klosi think this is an essential in mp3, but no mp3 player or firmware builder does support it yet
12:26:38scorcheklos: there has been discussion about it, but no verdict has been reached yet

12:27:03scorcheklos: once i find and move the thread, i will link you
12:27:21midkayscorche: no verdict?..
12:27:26midkayyou mean nobody's coded it.
12:27:32linuxstb_klos: Why is cue support "essential" ? Rockbox can play back mp3 files gaplessly, so you can just encode your mix to separate files.
12:28:03CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
12:28:03*JdGordon reckons que is "more important" than mpegplayer... seen as rockbox is a audio player first....
12:28:04klosyea but i do encode my mix cd with eac which does creat one mp3 file and a cue file
12:28:12*JdGordon also knows why que isnt done so shuts up
12:28:13scorchemidkay: that too...but, well, see linuxstb_'s response
12:28:20preglowklos: tell it not to, then
12:28:28klosalso its the better soltuion to record it to cd again because you can easily burn an image and wont have any gaps etc
12:28:39preglowif it's done properly, you won't have any gaps anyway
12:28:59nudelynif you want to write back to audio cd you're better off with a lossless format
12:29:04midkayscorche: so linuxstb happens to say that we can sort of work around it and you use that as a reason for your message?.. why would we discuss it and say "we don't know if we want it or not"? if somebody codes it, so be it..
12:29:05linuxstb_You'll have bigger problems than gaps if you like to go from CD -> MP3 -> CD
12:29:09klosimho i think thats the better soltuin
12:29:18preglowyes, but still
12:29:22preglowthere will be problems with cue support
12:29:25preglowlike exact mp3 seeking
12:29:36preglowit's not trivial
12:29:40preglowso it hasn't happened yet
12:29:43klosok preglow
12:30:02nudelynnot trivial and has zero advantages, except for fewer files, over 1 file per track
12:30:11scorchemidkay: stop picking every little thing...i am not in the mood for it
12:30:28 Quit bluebrother ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
12:30:49linuxstb_midkay: I would say cue files are generally used to workaround the fact that very few players do gapless - not that gapless is a workaround for not supporting cues.
12:30:51midkayscorche: alright.
12:31:26nudelynheh, even fewer players support .cue files than gapless :)
12:31:57klosyea because it snot that popular
12:31:58midkaylinuxstb_: i wouldn't say "cue support is a workaround for gapless" or vice-versa, they're both different. having both would be optimal. we were talking about cue support though, and you happen to mention that gapless works similarly, i was just pointing out that you said that after scorche's messages..
12:32:11linuxstb_nudelyn: I also mean that people encode to a single long file to get around gappy players.
12:32:44linuxstb_midkay: You said "so linuxstb happens to say that we can sort of work around it" - I'm just saying that I don't think of what I said as a workaround, but the better solution.
12:33:01klosthe facts is that old mp3 sites suggest to rip using eac and also suggest to encode live mixes and mix cd using the cue file
12:33:14midkaylinuxstb_: i don't really care for either, i'd say gapless is a workaround for cue support *when the user wants cue support specifically*.
12:33:23klosdue to these gaps. at all i aggee to it because it doent make any sense on a mix cd to have a single file
12:33:24midkayjust like cue support would be a workaround for gapless if that's what the user wanted.

12:39:36markunIs it called a paraphrase?
12:39:50midkaysomething like that, right.
12:40:10midkaylinuxstb you stated something that all in all meant we could give the net result of cue support without it actually being cue support, thus a workaround, no?

14:45:27BagderI'm currently just verifying that my script has everything it needs to do starting automatically
14:45:27JdGordonbecause not everything really is "global".. i.e some stuff is just for one screen
14:45:31Mikachuif i want to make an action to change volume in the quickscreen, do i need to make a new ACTION_QS_VOLUP or can i just use ACTION_WPS_VOLUP?

14:45:47Bagderand it seems it works

14:52:59freqmodbecause neither opera nor ksvg supported patterns so i created duplicate squares to make the background pattern
14:53:14jhMikeSLinusN: That recording patch works after modifying it but with a couple hitches: Going fast to the rec screen with voice menus on will hang it (voice hangs alot anway), sometimes you get a dupe filename (dupe seemed to disappear after reboot so maybe dircache?), when playing back the recorded files the prog. bar and playtime stop about 2s from the end.
14:54:45markunJdGordon: chris was working on the gigabeat keymap file. But because it was broken again I used the iriver file as a template.

14:58:00*JdGordon has to do a wiki page asap :p

15:22:33linuxstb_crashd: The main problem is that Rockbox can't detect the difference between a USB connection to a computer and a USB connection to a wall socket, so it reboots to disk mode in both cases (unless you explicitly tell Rockbox not to reboot when you insert a USB cable).
15:23:18MikachuJdGordon: in context_standard, ACTION_STD_OK is BUTTON_SELECT|BUTTON_REL, BUT, the prereq isn't BUTTON_SELECT

15:49:27lorijhobarrywardell: How to build the bootloader for 5/6GB ?
15:50:00linuxstb_jhMikeS: Did you find the discussion in the irc logs?
15:50:10 Quit Farpenoodle (Remote closed the connection)
15:50:33jhMikeSFor one thing I'm trying to simplify the use of recording APIs for SWCODEC so that the details can be hidden from the UI code. It's terrible to see all that #if ...SWCODEC lying around in UI code. Both radio.c and recording.c share pretty much the same code.
15:50:38barrywardelllorijho: make a new directory inside rockbox-devel. cd into it. run ../tools/configure. Select 24, then b for bootloader. then make
15:50:51jhMikeSlinuxstb_: Was busy I'll look now.
15:50:59linuxstb_jhMikeS: starting at around 13:06
15:51:14barrywardelllorijho: it creates a H10.mi4 file which you can copy to your player's System directory
15:51:45lorijhobarrywardell: thx
15:51:52barrywardelllorijho: but make a backup the the mi4 file that's there already
15:52:11lorijhobarrywardell: sure :)
15:54:00linuxstb_jhMikeS: Sorry, that discussion was much briefer than I remembered... But I think the idea was to make the FM screen handle recording from FM - which is how it works on hwcodec.
15:54:39tucozamiconn, around?
15:55:26tucozamiconn, I wonder what we should call the on button on the recorders. In the image in the current manual, we call it menu. But we call it On in the text
15:56:09 Quit eGen_ ("mdlo kon ! ... runk kon !")
15:57:18tucozSame thing with the one marked as Off. It's called Stop now, but shouldn't we call it Off instead (as that is what is printed on the button)
15:57:46jhMikeSlinuxstb_: Well...I see...I'm not sure I agree with that. Added another recording source: "fm radio". The apis in pcm_record.c should handle setting the muxes correctly. You just tell it what source to use: mic, line-in, [spdif], [fmradio]...
15:58:21linuxstb_Yes, but then how do you adjust the radio parameters? e.g. switch the tuner from mono to stereo, or adjust the tuning/
15:58:22lorijhobarrywardell: make produces error for main.c FLASH_ENTRYPOINT, GPIO1_*, BUTTON_REC etc.. undeclared
15:58:23Bagdertucoz: I think they should be called On and Off as much as possible as that's what marks on the buttons say
15:58:43jhMikeSYou can't use the more advanced buttons available on the record screen on the radio screen unless the buttons are modal for recording.
15:58:55tucozYes. I think we can agree on that. I guess there is a reason to why they were renamed to menu and stop in the past
15:59:07LinusNjhMikeS: i think we should support noth
15:59:24freqmodmaybe we should design the manual pictures with the button names used in the manual
15:59:26jhMikeSLinusN: both what? recording in either manner?

15:59:50 Join eGen_ [0] (
16:00:20tucozfreqmod, yes. That is a simple change. However, the old 2.4 manual had the buttons marked as Menu and Stop (while the print on the buttons is On and Off)
16:00:48LinusNwell, on the FM recorder the ON button is marked as both
16:01:12barrywardelllorijho: i'll look into that now
16:01:19jhMikeSLinusN: That where I took it in my head as well...but I think things should be consistent regarding starting a new file...short presses on record for both screens.

16:10:49linuxstb_theli_ua: Can you change the code so it generates 16-bit signed stereo data instead?
16:10:49preglowtheli_ua: if signed, you just set the upper byte of the 16 bit value to the 8 bit value, and the lower one to 0
16:10:50tucozfreqmod, you do not have to make the button assignments. I am on that task
16:11:18preglowif unsigned, you need to bias the value by -128 first
16:11:21theli_uapreglow, whats about mono/stereo stuff?
16:11:34preglowtheli_ua: just duplicate the data for both channels if you need to pass stereo
16:11:57tucozhowever, another thing that needs to be fixed is the Rockbox-logo svg found in the frontpage directory. The box part is gray, but should be slightly blue
16:11:58freqmodok, that was only an example
16:12:21lorijhobarrywardell: Couldn't find mi4code. So I'll have to build mi4code seperately. It's not in rockbox cvs ?

16:12:55jhMikeSMmmm: That occured to me too. Need your valuable input to decide what approach to set up and do it correctly now! :) Saves much work later.
16:13:19freqmodahh, and maybe we should put the rockbox logo's on the lcd screens of the targets
16:13:21lorijhobarrywardell: thx
16:13:45MmmmjhMikeS: I think this would be best, then the radio screen can just be for the radio (no recording functionality)
16:14:00jhMikeSMmmm: What players were using recording on the fmradio screen anyway?
16:14:17Mmmmall hardware..Ondio, Recorder
16:15:29freqmodwas it the yellow colour that was wrong?
16:17:27jhMikeSMmmm: I suppose adding the screen flip for recording to swcodec would be the easiest approch now. I can't test the hw ones anyway.
16:17:29lorijhobarrywardell: H10.mi4 built successfully. Giving it a try now, let's just hope it won't kill the player :)

16:18:55tucozfreqmod, may I ask how you made the arrows?
16:18:57jhMikeSMmmm: I suppose the screens should be able to flip to each other? if you select source: fm radio, should the radio start? Now that its started should you be able to flip to it?

16:49:02amiconnHow would you handle prerecording then?
16:50:08amiconnswcodec targets don't support it yet, but on the archoses with radio the recording hardware is initialised, and if prerecording is enabled you can record your favourite song even if it already started

16:52:11amiconnThe input is fixed (line) and the level is also (nearly) fixed
16:52:31Mmmmnot on sw targets!
16:52:41amiconnI mean for radio
16:53:08amiconnThe radio is hooked up to the line input of the adc (with a mux), and the level can be fixed for radio

17:14:19jhMikeSMmmm:, what, you set line in as the source for fm recording while radio is on? Probably works on x5 too already then. It needs an "FM Radio" source to be right which I've added. I think I can create a sensible scheme now.

22:44:02nuxatorAnyone have the same prob or it's only me?
22:44:05Mikachumirak: a hermitian transpose is ', a normal transpose is .'

22:57:27bluebrothertucoz, yes.
22:57:33dan_aA_M: Could you check the daily build and see if that has the same problem?
22:57:52tucozbluebrother, you said you had an idea to remove the player images with the draw ones?
22:58:16bluebrotheryes, like the one pixelma posted some time later.
22:58:38tucozbluebrother, yes. That was exactly my idea as well. I have started to make them fit in the manual
22:58:45A_Mdan_a: sure I'll give it a try
22:59:08linuxstbA_M: For example? Some unused files are there for a reason, some are probably just forgotten.
22:59:47A_Mgui/list.c and gui/list.h are afaik no longer used since aug 15
22:59:48bluebrothertucoz, fit what to the manual? The scans?
22:59:55tucozno, the .svg ones
22:59:59A_Merr, make that
23:00:11tucozbluebrother, with key assignments in a consistent way aso
23:00:26bluebrotherah, ok. Are there a lot already drawn?
23:00:31tucozyes, lots
23:00:51bluebrothercool. Wasn't aware this idea was already floating around.
23:00:53tucozfreqmod have made images of the ipods and the irivers
23:01:45bluebrothergood I didn't start playing around with the h100 today ;-)
23:02:06tucozbluebrother, I made a rough scetch earlier this weekend, but after that some artists (freqmod, pixelma) showed up with their skills.
23:02:19A_Mdan_a: daily build seems to work
23:03:55linuxstbA_M: I guess they're in the forgotten category. Although maybe it's too soon to remove them.
23:03:58tucozbluebrother, I used a palatino font for the key assignments. I can show you one if you like
23:04:17bluebrothersure :)
23:04:33Bagderand now the cvs table grows even more...
23:04:42bluebrotherare you converting them to png for the inclusion?
23:04:49tucozhmm. How do I dcc a file?
23:05:07Bagdermarkun: a few yellows to work on we see
23:05:09tucozbluebrother, that is one of the things I haven't done yet
23:05:49markunBagder: yes, I noticed
23:05:53markunthanks again
23:06:01Bagdermy pleasure!
23:06:09bluebrotherI was looking around a bit on how to convert them best ... found hints that inkscape could be used for command line conversion.
23:06:10Bagder49 frigging builds
23:06:29tucozbluebrother, look at this.
23:06:39*linuxstb only has space for about 7 more builds on his monitor...

23:07:04Paul_The_NerdV2 looks lonely over there, stuck with all the strange new players.
23:07:10Bagderyeah, the sort order is a big messy
23:07:15Bagdera bit
23:07:58linuxstbStill, a very impressive list of targets...
23:07:59Rudy4PezHrmmm... Did Senab fall off of the planet?
23:08:11bluebrothertucoz, sounds nice. But IMO the text is a bit far away from the device ...
23:08:25tucozbluebrother, it looks nice in the manual (imo)
23:08:49Bagderthing is, I don't want to fix the sort order since that would mean changing build names and changing build names will appear as new builds
23:08:57bluebrotherhaven't seen it in the manual, but if it looks fine I don't see any problems.
23:08:59tucozbluebrother, and I think it looks best if we do not overlay the text on top of the player images themselves
23:09:43tucozThat is why I used that approach
23:09:56bluebrotherthe plain image is a bit ... ripped off to get the whole picture ;-)
23:10:17bluebrotherI'm really looking forward to get new nice player pictures

23:11:18Mikachuif you have a=[1 2]; b=[2 3]; you do c=a.*b'
23:11:23tucozhmm. I can commit the player and the recorder. Should I just keep the old png for now for the html version?
23:11:33mirakMikachu: thanks
23:11:43tucozand the ipodvideo as well.
23:11:46bluebrotherif we have a png of the new version we can use that for the html manual.
23:12:05tucozyes. do you have an idea how to? imagemagick somehow?
23:12:16bluebrotherfrom the pdf?
23:12:26tucozyes, or the .svg
23:12:41*tucoz starts inkscape
23:13:35bluebrotherinkscape -e <filename> exports to png
23:14:26bluebrothertried on the svg pixelma posted earlier. Looks good.
23:14:33tucozsize as well?
23:14:49Mikachuwhy not use svg in html? :)
