00:26:38peturan hour ago
00:27:07Bagderbut Genre9mp3 pretty much repeated it
00:27:43Mikachuis it too early to complain about the scheduler?
00:28:00dionoeait's past midnight :) can't be too early :p
00:28:07Mikachunavigating menus feels sluggish even when no music is playing
00:28:44BagderI wonder how that can happen
00:29:13XavierGrwow the new scheduler is finally commited?
00:29:17XavierGrgood news then
00:29:28Bagderyes, if you like sluggish UI ;-)
00:29:48XavierGrwell there is no way to make audio skip now :p
00:29:54Mikachui remember when i asked if something like that would ever be added, you said no, that would add years of problems to debug
00:30:05Bagder"no way" is probably an overstatement
00:30:23Mikachuif you enable the eq and crossfeed on an ipod, it will surely skip
00:30:29XavierGrI must update and see the new changes myself

01:07:37mihalishey folks... i just got an ipod and i have a question ;)
01:07:49dionoeafannay: check the wiki page for instructions
01:08:27fannayI checked and it says copy but im not sure if they want me to unzip them or not :/
01:08:50fannayIl just test and see
01:09:00fannaywill let you know ha :]
01:09:00mihalisi dont like the layout of it when i turn it on... it lists folders like"movies" "music" "settings" etc... instead of just a directory tree (which is what i would prefer)... i installed rockbox for it, but it doesnt seem to fix anything
01:09:04mihalisany ideas?
01:09:36dionoeafannay: you need to unzip them
01:09:51mihalisi dont want to categorize all my music by "genre" and all that crap... i just like to keep it simple... alphabetical order (kind of like archos)
01:09:56 Quit ender` (" Japan actually has a fair amount of land, it's just that about 1/3 of the population seems to want to live in the same 13,000")
01:10:05dionoeamihalis: if you installed rockbox it should look completely differnet
01:10:11dionoeamake sure that you reboot the ipod
01:10:18mihalismmmm... it doesnt, and i did
01:10:28dionoeawell then you got something wrong :)
01:10:35mihalisi had rockbox on my old mp3 player...
01:10:38mihalisand it worked fine
01:10:50dionoearebooted like: "keep play and select pressed for 10 seconds" ?
01:10:55mihalismy ipod though... it keeps installing the default configuration
01:11:11mihalisis there another way?
01:11:33mihalishmmm... lemme try again real quick
01:11:42fannayRight can rockbox open wad files?
01:11:55dionoeafannay: no, you launch the doom plugin
01:12:00dionoeaand it looks for the wads
01:12:05dionoeaand lets you select the one you want
01:12:30fannayWhat doom plugin :S I have the doom was
01:13:07***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
01:13:10mihalisnope nothing
01:13:21dionoeafannay: check in the plugins list.
01:13:38dionoeamihalis: well you must have got something wrong in the install instructions then i guess
01:13:38mihalisit still says "ipod" at the top of the screen and gives me that lameass menu
01:13:41XavierGrmihalis: are you from Greece?

01:14:29linuxstb_mihalis: What install instructions did you follow?
01:14:39mihalishrmmm.... i was supposed to just unzip rockbox (including the directory structure) to my ipod root directory, right?
01:14:47XavierGrmihalis is a greek name that's why I ask
01:14:48dionoeaand install the bootloader
01:14:57dionoeayou must've missed that part :)
01:15:04dionoeacheck the link i pasted
01:15:10mihalismust have... my last mp3 player didnt need that
01:15:35dionoeathe archoses were indeed easier :)
01:16:08mihalisyah... leave it to apple to screw things up
01:16:20mihalisall in the name of trying to be "user friendly"...
01:16:31mihalisthey wind up making things more complicated than they need to be
01:17:03dionoeawell they're not supposed to make it easy for you to install rockbox :)
01:17:34 Quit MarcoPolo ("Bye !")
01:18:19mihalisare there any other easy ways of removing that horrible default interface that an ipod comes with?
01:18:41mihalisyou know what im talking about... that stupid menu that categorizes by "songs", "genres" etc...
01:18:49*jhMikeS is suprised the thread update didn't cause merging conflict with his recording work :)
01:19:13dionoeamihalis: installing rockbox it the only good way to do so :)
01:19:19linuxstb_mihalis: Only not buying an ipod...
01:19:21jhMikeSmihalis: sledgehammer ;)
01:19:27mihalissigh* then i'll do it ;)
01:19:43mihalisi got it 'cause it was 60 gigs... not 'cause it was apple
01:20:45fannayOk help me with rockdoom? I can get to the folder but when i click on the wad it doesnt do anything... please help.
01:20:59dionoeafannay: i already told you not to click on the wad
01:21:04dionoeaopen the doom plugin
01:21:08LandusI've got a bit of a problem with the tagcache.
01:21:34LandusEverytime I add some new songs, and reboot the player, the tagcache will tell me its not ready after a few minutes of it being on.
01:21:46fannaywhere is the doom plugin though?
01:21:49LandusThen, if I reboot it again, only the songs that are new will show up in the tag cache.
01:22:04LandusAnd only them.
01:23:32dionoeafannay: open the menu. choose "Browse plugins" and it'll be somewhere there
01:23:45fannayok thanks will try now
01:26:17*jhMikeS just likes breaking stuff
01:27:23jhMikeSIs that ticking when using the remote likely the same nature of ticking that happens on other platforms?
01:27:29jhMikeSon the x5 that is
01:27:45LandusMost platforms don't tick.
01:28:03jhMikeSwell there's that HAVE_REMOTE_TICKING thing for what H300?

01:29:09jhMikeSIt sounds like it's playing vinyl
01:33:25fannaywow i heart doom
01:34:03LandusYou won't heart it for long.
01:34:23LandusFurther into the game, the control become rather slow.
01:34:31LandusYou can't turn fast enough.
01:34:40LandusThus, resulting in your virtual death.
01:34:46fannaymeh doesnt bother mee
01:34:50LandusIt will.
01:34:59fannayhmm ok
01:35:07LandusThe only real use of the game is to show off to friends.
01:35:11LandusPlaying it isn't at all worth it.
01:35:18LandusIt drains the battery too fast.
01:35:23fannaynow what about gba emulators, do they work on rockbox?
01:36:25LandusThere's already one that comes with Rockbox.
01:36:26dionoeanot that i know
01:36:37LandusRockboy is a gba/gbc emulator.
01:36:37dionoeait's only gb or gbc i think
01:36:50LandusAs for how much it wears on the battery, I dunno.
01:36:51fannayohh but they do work on rockbox?
01:37:01LandusYes. It's already installed.
01:37:11fannayohh thats gudd
01:37:17LandusPut on a .gbc or .gba filie, switch the file view to all.
01:37:24dionoeaLandus: wiki doesn't mention gb advanced
01:37:35LandusRockboy is used.
01:37:37dionoeaonly old gameboy or gameboycolor roms
01:37:44LandusAnd I know for a fact that Rockboy supports GBA.
01:37:53LandusAnyway, as I was saying.
01:38:13fannayIl check that out now but this is a really sad question.. how do you exit snake 2?
01:38:22LandusThen select said ROM, hold select, and choose open with.

01:42:46fannayYeah ok. But is it supposed to be on my plugins list?
01:43:04linuxstb_No, it's a viewer. Just click on a .gb or .gbc file.

02:59:14kpfleming|laptopi played ogg/vorbis files on my iPod 4G just fine

03:00:42dongsalso what about the money he begged out on spinhome? will this be returned to original donators since it is no longer needed?

04:21:44DarthShrineRockbox is awesome but way to battery heavy on iPods :(
04:25:26SoapIt is getting better DarthShrine.
04:26:06DarthShrineWhat's making it so bad though?
04:27:58SoapRunning the CPU harder than Apple is a theory. Leaving part of the hardware unintentionally turned on is another. They don't have docs on the hardware, they might have left the oven on.
04:28:44scottderdepends on the codec you're using and what features you are using as well
04:29:02scottderQ3 Ogg Vorbis with minimal LCD usage and I get great time
04:29:10scottderon my Nano
04:29:24DarthShrineI've got mostly AAC.
04:29:34BHSPitMonkeyit'd be nice if you could put the lcd to sleep during playback
04:29:41BHSPitMonkeyif it saved power
04:30:23scottderI have my backlight shut off after 2 for me
04:30:43DarthShrineThat's only the backlight though.
04:31:36Soapscottder - my last test gave MP3 bit-per-bit a longer runtime than ogg.
04:32:52scottderAt what bitrate?
04:33:05Soapfor both.
04:33:24scottderI use Q3 to good effect mostly which is closer to 112
04:33:25Soapthere is no reason to believe ogg @ 96 will perform better than mp3@96.
04:33:35Soapor any other value of N
04:34:03scottderJust a preference of mine....
04:34:25Soapno, it's fine. Just saying mp3 appears to give slightly better battery life.
04:34:40scottderI rarely run out of juice myself....
04:34:55scottderusually not that far from juice, so :)
04:34:58Mikachuogg gives more quality per bit though
04:35:11Soapyou have your ABX logs?
04:35:20scottderthe recent updates have been geared towards lowe bitrates

05:20:04TheMcPoonHow do you play videos on rockbox with a 60gb video ipod?
05:20:38DarthShrineWell I know there's a viewer for raw MPEG-1 and 2 without sound

05:20:58TheMcPoonHow do I..install that onto the ipod?
05:21:02TheMcPoonany guides?
05:21:10DarthShrineIt should be there.
05:21:20TheMcPoonWell, I want sound..
05:21:37aliaskThen you're going to have to be patient, or boot into Apple firmware.
05:21:53TheMcPoonOh, okay then
05:22:11aliaskVideo in rockbox is at really early stages at the moment.
05:22:25TheMcPoonokay, thank you
05:24:19TheMcPoonSo, I'll just use rockbox firmware for the games/music, and videos with apple firmware, that'll work?
05:25:36TheMcPoonThanks, I love how with rockbox the volume is much louder
05:25:52DarthShrineHeh, I have about -50dB set.
05:26:08TheMcPoonIsn't that low?
05:26:48DarthShrineNot really, with IEMs.
05:27:35TheMcPoonAre IEMs headphones? lol, sorry
05:29:12DarthShrineIn Ear Monitors. Poky things that go in your ears.
05:29:21TheMcPoonOh, okay
05:30:49TheMcPoonI'm using some Bose headphones, they sound pretty amazing
05:32:39DarthShrineMmm, but they're big
05:34:00TheMcPoonlol, yeah

07:39:51Paul_The_NerdYeah, patches show up for it from time to time
07:40:01Paul_The_NerdIt's hardly a focus on the iPod since there's all the other playback and battery issues to deal with still
07:40:12TheMcPoonBy downloading daily builds, are the patches inside?
07:40:18 Join daurnimator [0] (i=quae@unaffiliated/daurnimator)
07:40:38Paul_The_NerdThe whole definition of "patch" is "something not yet included." Patches eventually get included if they're considered good enough
07:40:59Paul_The_NerdUsually this requires that they follow the coding guidelines, don't break anything, and don't increase the size of the main binary more than they're worth.

07:44:04Paul_The_NerdBut it's open source, anyone could come along and make some.
07:44:14Paul_The_NerdPatches often show up out of the blue adding something cool
07:44:22Paul_The_NerdLike the SID music format, or the ZXSpectrum emulator.
07:44:27TheMcPoonHow do you add patches to your current build?
07:44:59Paul_The_NerdSee the SimpleGuideToCompiling wiki page
07:46:48TheMcPoonI wonder if they'll ever make a program that will autoupdate
07:49:19Paul_The_NerdAutoupdate what?
07:49:31 Join daurnimator [0] (i=quae@unaffiliated/daurnimator)
07:49:34DarthShrineRockbox I guess.
07:49:55TheMcPoonFirmware, meaning that when you plug your ipod (etc) and use the 'autoupdate' program, it will just download all updates and install them
07:50:00TheMcPoonthat'd be pretty cool
07:50:01Paul_The_NerdThat doesn't make too much sense. I mean, a new build is made available the instant any patch or other change is added into the official version. All you have to do is download that and unzip
07:50:20TheMcPoonI suppose
07:50:35Paul_The_NerdA few people have made tools that will grab the latest Rockbox and unzip it for you though
07:52:18TheMcPoonSo, to update to the newest daily build, all you do is unzip and extract onto the player right?
07:52:20safetydanTheMcPoon, more visualisations are unlikely to ever be added as they'd chew battery life pretty fast
07:52:52Paul_The_NerdWell, added as plugins though. If people want the option to drain their battery four times as fast, let 'em. :-P
07:53:12TheMcPoonExactly ^ lol
07:53:14Paul_The_NerdTheMcPoon: Yup. This is covered in various parts of the instructions, though I can't say for certain if it's in the manual
07:53:32TheMcPoonAnd okay, thanks
07:53:39safetydanPaul_The_Nerd, yeah plugins I guess. Though most people who ask for them want them on the WPS.
07:55:02Paul_The_Nerdsafetydan: Well, once you've got viewports, you could theoretically modify plasma, fire, oscilloscope etc to render to a viewport in the WPS, I imagine. Y'know, if you really felt like you needed to either eat up battery life, or just have bragging rights of some sort.
07:55:37safetydantrue, true
07:55:46Paul_The_NerdHonestly, I use a very simple grayscale WPS anyway. No real graphics to speak of. So, I don't really care if this never happens. :)
07:56:00safetydanthough I really wonder about visualisations sometimes... who's looking at their music player while it's playing music?
07:56:12JdGordoni doubt plugins and wps would be able to draw to the same screen, even if viewports are used...
07:56:13TheMcPoonlol, I do when I'm laying down :P
07:58:21Paul_The_NerdJdGordon: Some changes would have to go into the whole WPS rendering system, but I'm sure a way could be done in the end.
07:58:48TheMcPoonI'm really amazed at the volume of the rockbox firmware compared to that of apple.
07:58:53*JdGordon rekons the wps rendering shuold be rock-ified with only a very dumb renderer in the core
07:58:56TheMcPoonBig difference.
07:59:13JdGordon... but thats an argument for anoother day
07:59:53TheMcPoonAnd, rockbox sounds much better to me.
08:00:22TheMcPoonIs it just me?
08:00:45JdGordonits jst you... everyone lese thinks it sounds like a bag of shit :D
08:00:48 Join midgey34 [0] (
08:00:52TheMcPoonWow, really?
08:00:55safetydanshould sound no worse than the original firmware at least
08:00:55Paul_The_NerdPeople often argue that it sounds better, or worse.
08:01:18Paul_The_NerdMost even remotely empirical tests (ABX using the same files, or analyzed output) show that it's pretty much indistinguishable at identical settings.
08:01:21JdGordonTheMcPoon: well, there was one guy that said that.. and its funny :D
08:01:58Paul_The_NerdOf course, with Rockbox you have crossfeed and a parametric equalizer, so you don't have to settle for "identical" settings for your own listening
08:02:29TheMcPoonI think it sounds amazing.. I've been switching over and testing both, the volume goes much louder (does not hurt my ears @ max with apple, hurts to go anywhere near max on rockbox = w00t) and the quality seems much clearer. The bass made glitchy sounds, like the bass was too high or something on the apple, and the bass is strong on the rockbox, but clear!
08:03:16*TheMcPoon shrugs
08:05:35safetydanTheMcPoon, are you using an iPod?
08:05:41TheMcPoonoh and my headphones shake on my head.. now that's some bass.. probably not good for my ears... <.<
08:06:03TheMcPooniPod Video (60GB)
08:06:44safetydanTheMcPoon, I believe Apple included a volume limiter in their firmware to stop people suing them for damaging their hearing
08:07:10Paul_The_NerdWell there's an extra volume limiter in the newer versions (maybe only for EU iPods)
08:07:10TheMcPoonYeah, I'm sure they did. I was talking about that before to my friend.
08:07:23Paul_The_NerdBut theirs only goes up to ~0dB if I had to hazard a guess, while ours goes up to +6
08:07:34Paul_The_NerdEven without the limiter
08:07:44TheMcPoonIt's weird though, it sounds quite louder even before I get to 0dB
08:07:55Paul_The_NerdOf course at +6 earbuds can pretty much be used as (really bad sounding) speakers.
08:09:12TheMcPoonI'm at -15dB, and it still sounds louder than the max of apples..

08:17:42mihalisanybody know?
08:17:57safetydanmihalis, have you tried playing audio in the original firmware?
08:18:06mihalisi have not...
08:18:27mihalisi suppose thats one way to find out
08:18:42mihalisi'd have to install itunes to move the mp3s over then...
08:18:58safetydanRockbox is unlikely to be producing crappy sound
08:19:04mihalisi have half amind to just take this back to the store where i bought it and demand a refund
08:19:19mihalisipod sucks compared to archos, hands down
08:19:20safetydanthough check that you have all the sound settings normal
08:19:39safetydanso disable the hardware eq (if you have it), the software eq, and ensure anything else is at 0 or reasonable defaults
08:19:52mihalisyah... i disabled the equalizers... that was my first thought
08:19:58mihaliseverything is set to 0
08:20:25safetydanIt might be you just don't like the iPod sound
08:20:31Paul_The_NerdAlso: What are the various stats of the files? (Format, bitrate, sample rate)
08:20:35mihalishmmm... yah i think thats it
08:20:39safetydanbut try the original firmware first
08:20:43mihalisi will
08:21:02mihalisoh... i was listening to a 256 kbps 44.1 mp3
08:21:18mihalisit sounds great burned to a cd

08:21:59mihalisno matter what speakers i use
08:22:06mihalisits like its filtering out good sound
08:23:12safetydanAnother thing try is a settings reset and play the audio with the default settings of Rockbox. Just in case you've accidentally over-tweaked something.
08:23:53mihalisyah... ill try that too... i mean, i listened to this in my car, and normally music sounds great in my car.... not this
08:24:01mihalisthis was horrible

08:24:57Paul_The_NerdAn iPod should have considerably higher audio quality than say, FM Radio, at least.
08:25:21Paul_The_NerdIf your say yours is distorting, definitely try a settings reset, try the original firmware.
08:25:27mihalisyah... well, this certainly didnt, and for what i paid for it, i expect it to be at least as good as my last mp3 player
08:26:01mihalis...if i dont get it sorted out tonight, ill just haul it back up to circuit city... i just hope they'll give me a refund on the warranty package i bought with it
08:26:43Paul_The_NerdYou're not going to bother trying another one, just in case yours is shot?
08:28:58mihalisno, if this one doesnt work, ill probably go with an archos or a creative
08:29:14*Paul_The_Nerd shrugs
08:29:16Paul_The_NerdSeems somewhat silly
08:29:20mihalisi mean, ipod's look cooler, but if they dont perform as well, i dont want one
08:29:21Paul_The_NerdIf you'd prefer one of those, why not buy it first?
08:29:49Paul_The_NerdHow do you know they don't perform as well, if there's a chance yours is just flawed?
08:29:49safetydanIf you want Rockbox, I don't believe any of the Creative models are supported
08:29:53mihaliswell, i thought it might be better than what i had before... but if its not, ill go with what i had b4
08:29:58Paul_The_NerdAnd no currently sold Archoses are either.
08:30:05mihalisyah... i like rockbox *sigh*
08:30:18Paul_The_Nerdmihalis: Again, how is a single, potentially broken unit anything resembling a sampling that tells you how well they work?
08:30:28safetydaniRiver H10 or Apple iPod or iAudio X5 I believe are your options for available new mplayers
08:30:32mihalisu got a point... lemme check something real quick
08:30:33Paul_The_NerdAs well, when you used it in your car, what did you have the volume on the iPod set at?
08:30:33safetydanplayers even
08:30:55safetydanPaul_The_Nerd, that's a good point. Should have been set to 0dB if it's a line-in on the car
08:31:02mihalispaul: i had it set at 0. anything more would blow my speakers, and less sounded worse
08:31:30Paul_The_Nerdsafetydan: If it's line in, 0dB, if it's a tape deck or FM transmitter, -25ish often seems good, and turning up the regular head unit's volume more to compensate.
08:31:43Paul_The_Nerdmihalis: Was it a line in, or some other method of getting the sound there?
08:31:44mihalisim going to try listening to a track with old firmware, and then listen to the same track with rockbox
08:31:53safetydannot having used my iRiver in the car yet I'll take your word for it :)
08:32:13Paul_The_Nerdsafetydan: I've found you get distortion *really* easily with tape adapters, at least.
08:32:15mihalisit was a tape adapter, BUT i used the same tape adapter with a cd player and a burned cd of the same mp3, and it sounded better
08:32:43Paul_The_Nerdmihalis: Try the iPod with headphones at least. Put it on a comparision where you can more directly control the environment.
08:33:07mihalisyah thats what im doing... one sec
08:41:28mihalis... okay ;) im satisfied. i think it mustve been something with the settings
08:41:56mihalisit was like a nasty setting somewhere that made it sound like ass in a glass
08:42:42Paul_The_NerdRockbox has very powerful sound altering settings, and almost no "protection." This means that while you can tweak your sound a lot to get something you like better, it's also very easy to make it sound quite horrible.
08:43:31mihalishaha yah.. i mustve scerwed with it accidentally earlier when i was learnnig the controls

08:48:20mihalisi tested it on a 6 minute video, and after about 5 minutes, i could barely see the competion bar
08:48:48TheMcPoonIt was that slow? lol
08:49:11mihalisyes. i mean, i understand it being that way for the 2 hour concert, but not for a 6 minute clip... thats crazy
08:49:12TheMcPoonTry Videora, see what you think.. if it takes that long with the iTunes one, this will be faster
08:49:28TheMcPoonYou're welcome
08:50:28mihalishmmm.. what about xilisoft? ever used it?
08:51:00TheMcPoonFor example, I'm converting a 721mb file, and it's going to take about 55mim. 51 minutes left with 8% (it shows the percent and time left)
08:51:09TheMcPoonHaven't tried
08:51:35mihalisoh cool
08:51:41mihalisyeah thats awesome
08:51:54TheMcPoonYeah, it's a nice little program.
08:52:16TheMcPoonPretty easy too. All you have to do is open it, press one-click transcode, and that's it.
08:52:22mihalisi just downloaded xilisoft ipod video converter from emule... ill try it first before i try videora (because i have it) and if it doesnt work, ill try videora
08:52:40TheMcPoonAlright, tell me how xilisoft works, and if it's quick ;)
08:52:53mihalisthe zip file is only 6 mb
08:53:09mihalisit must be pretty simple
08:53:28TheMcPoonI'll be back in a few minutes. Going to go take a shower quick.
09:01:35mihaliswell, xilisoft is surprisingly fast... i converted the 6 minute test video in about 6 minutes
09:02:43vertic23and quality?
09:03:27vertic23I mean.. it's like the "one-click" DVD Rip tools which only change one factor but do not really reencode the video (which will reduce the quality much more)
09:04:02mihaliswell, i havent tried it yet... im in the process of doing it... we'll see how it works
09:04:10mihalisi still need to copy it over
09:04:38vertic23how many MB?
09:06:49mihalisewww... you're right, it reduces the quality... the file size was cut in half... but, it does have a field where you can change the quality... bitrate, etc
09:07:00mihalisit looks like a pretty nice prog actually
09:07:02 Join _Veseliq_ [0] (n=veseliq@
09:07:20mihalisit's called Xilisoft iPod Video Converter
09:07:36mihalisi got it off emule with a keygen included in the zip :)
09:08:15nlsplease don't talk warez here
09:08:25mihalisgot it... kewl ;)
09:08:50mihalisneedless to say, i think its decent
09:08:58vertic23then buy it
09:09:48mihaliswell, ya know, most video mp3 players of other brands dont require you to convert to their format in the first place... they pley stuff like mpgs
09:10:04mihalisbut apple.... apple has to be difficult... ive never liked apple because of that
09:10:18vertic23I'd never buy an apple product ^^
09:10:29mihalisyah... i feel like i made a mistake
09:10:37mihalisthey are just screwy
09:10:53vertic23apple is maybe good for video-editing ..with those high-end PCs without any trojans (which are running under windows... :P)
09:10:58mihalisi mean, the hardware really is quality, but the software and the firmware suck ass

09:16:12aliaskJdGordon: Have you tried snprintf?
09:16:27JdGordonaliask: no, i guess ill try that next
09:16:49aliaskBut I can't see why that wouldn't work...
09:17:18aliaskPerhaps it doesn't like writing into arrays of structs
09:17:44JdGordoni tried with the dest a local array, same thing
09:17:50JdGordon(gdb) p rb->strcpy
09:17:50JdGordonCannot access memory at address 0x198
09:17:55JdGordonthats odd...
09:18:12JdGordon(gdb) p rb
09:18:12JdGordon$1 = (struct plugin_api *) 0x0
09:18:31JdGordonsomething is wacked.... i dont thing gdb and the rocks work very well together
09:19:07JdGordonrb is inited well before this is called.... and rb->memcpy is called before hand and works fine!
09:19:31TheMcPoonWhat are we talking about here now?
09:19:53JdGordonme trying to get bookmarking back into the text viewer plugin
09:19:58TheMcPoonI see
09:20:22mihaliswhoa the quality actually rocks
09:20:31TheMcPoonQuality of the ipod?
09:20:51JdGordonaliask: snprintf segfaults also!
09:20:55mihalisthe video i just converted
09:21:00TheMcPoonah, okay
09:21:05TheMcPoonHow long did it take?
09:21:06mihalisyah im watching it on my ipod... and yah
09:21:08mihalisits nice
09:21:18mihalismmm... 6 minutes, approximately
09:21:24TheMcPoonfor how many mb?
09:21:29aliaskJdGordon: Sounds like there could be some memory corruption or something, but this is really over my head.
09:21:46mihalis65 mb... the finished file was about half that, but the quality was still excellent
09:21:56mihalisi think it's because it resized it
09:22:33mihalisanyohw... im hitting the hay for the night... i appreciate all your help

09:47:11vikPaul_The_Nerd: Nope.
09:47:15Paul_The_NerdMP3s aren't exactly "powerful" devices.
09:47:18Paul_The_Nerdvik: Then you have your answer.

09:48:21 Quit |AhIoRoS| ("Abandonando, see you")
09:48:23Paul_The_NerdThe gameboy was like, a fraction of the speed of the SNES.
09:48:23vikPaul_The_Nerd: more the point is, is it possible? I know the hardware can't wake it up at a set time, but if it's switched on...
09:48:35scorchei would say more like SNES and gameboy advance are alike...
09:48:43Paul_The_Nerdvik: In the future it might be possible for the hardware to do something at a given time if it's already powered up.
09:48:53Paul_The_Nerdscorche: SNES is 16-bit, GBA is 32 I believe.
09:48:55TheMcPoonI mean't graphics wise.. they're both not 3D, not power wise :P
09:49:12Paul_The_NerdGB<NES<GBC<SNES<GBA roughly.
09:49:36Paul_The_NerdActually NES may be above GBC
09:49:42Paul_The_NerdI think it could handle more simultaneous sprites.
09:49:47Paul_The_NerdThought it did that silly flicker thing
09:49:50scorchePaul_The_Nerd: is a lot closer than gameboy and snes
09:51:33Paul_The_NerdThough technically in terms of sheer CPU speed, all the way up to the DS they're still less than an iPod.
09:51:58Paul_The_NerdBut then, with emulation you need a significant multiple of the target's CPU power usually, anyway.
09:52:27Paul_The_NerdThe Nintendo DS has a 33mhz and 66mhz ARM core if my memory serves. The 33mhz is the graphics processor, if I recall.
09:53:18TheMcPoonWhat does the iPod have?
09:53:38Paul_The_NerdIt has two 75mhz ones, though we only really make use of one for the time being.
09:53:57TheMcPoonWow, that's impressive. I didn't know that.
09:54:05vikPaul_The_Nerd: I'm trying to work out why the alarm plugin doesn't go on the rockbox; AFAICT it just polls the clock, then starts playing music when the time is up.
09:54:53Paul_The_NerdTheMcPoon: Well the difference is that the DS has a variety of other bits of hardware that helps. Like probably a hardware 3D chip somewhere
09:55:07Paul_The_Nerdvik: Because it's not adapted to work with the H300 yet?
09:55:35vikOr it hasn't been tried?

10:00:10Paul_The_NerdNot really
10:00:20Paul_The_NerdThere is a site that calls itself PluginBox, or was (I don't know if it's still around)

10:01:08*scorche wonders about the purpose of any site that holds plugins/themes
10:01:12Paul_The_NerdI can patch and rebuild in about 3 minutes
10:01:24Paul_The_NerdBut you have to learn to compile and set up a dev environment first.
10:02:06Paul_The_Nerdscorche: Well, a site to actually organize themes better is a nice idea. If it had a proper database and let you filter by patches required since nobody seems to like making "pure" themes
10:03:44scorchewell, if it is done right, of course...but the rockbox site always has more themes/plugins than the other sites and never lacks any that this other site might have
10:03:56scorchejust talking about the current state of such sites
10:04:31scorcheJdGordon: i have seen it, but it still has the issue above
10:04:54scorcheonly place i have seen themes that are not on the site was on misticriver forums
10:05:32Paul_The_NerdWell that's because there's still a decent percentage of people there who don't know there *is* an official Rockbox site.

10:06:18*scorche googles rockbox....
10:06:25*scorche looks at the first result
10:06:29Paul_The_NerdThey get introduce to Rockbox by being pointed to one of the Experimental Builds there.
10:06:35Paul_The_NerdSomeone links them directly to fwpatcher.exe
10:06:39Paul_The_NerdThey get their themes from a thread.
10:06:51Paul_The_NerdThey ask questions there, get them answered, then start reporting bugs there.
10:07:08scorcheick..doesnt sound too efficient
10:07:36Paul_The_NerdOn the plus side, they're experimental build bugs.
10:07:58Paul_The_NerdIt's gotten a lot better.
10:08:41Paul_The_NerdI spent about two months irritating a lot of people by responding to almost every bug / help request in MR with an answer + "in the future you'll be more likely to receive quality help at the official forums"
10:08:45scorchei think i will still stick with tyvm

10:11:11*safetydan is still snickering about the hw eq thread
10:11:15Paul_The_NerdBut for a little while, I posted a lot, to try to emphasize the unofficial nature of the "Optimized" or "Experimental" build, as well as point out that there is an official version.
10:11:39Paul_The_Nerdsafetydan: I never read the whole thing. Is there a particularly funny bit?
10:11:53Paul_The_Nerdsafetydan: Or is it all the "It's like night and day" people?
10:12:17safetydanPaul_The_Nerd, the fact that people were saying that the sound was so much better when in fact I'd stuff up and accidentally set all the hw eq bands to +12 dB gain
10:12:38safetydanthat, and we're also not sure the peak filters actually work
10:12:43Paul_The_Nerdsafetydan: Hahaha. So, "better" == "louder"
10:12:52safetydanso basically people are saying the sound is so much better with +12 dB bass and +12 dB treble
10:13:37scorchethere are times when i forget the idiocy of some people =)

10:30:39Paul_The_NerdBetter in what way?

10:30:54Paul_The_NerdDaily builds are just the bleeding edge build made most recently before a specific time each day.
10:31:21Paul_The_Nerd"Better than the bleeding edge" doesn't mean anything, since you're not giving me what on Earth you would consider the axis they're to be compared upon

10:32:10Paul_The_NerdThe bleeding edge build will have the newest features, bug fixes, AND bugs.

11:04:19Slasherihmm, then i will just reset it
11:04:36Slasherinow it should work, please try again :)
11:05:05Slasheriit still says it's expired?
11:05:24Slasheriargh, need to modify ldap then.. just a moment
11:07:23perplexity"52 builds in 475 seconds (7mins 55secs) makes 9.1 seconds/build" <−− those are nice numbers :)
11:07:48Bagder7min 55 secs are pretty long by our standards
11:08:07perplexityyeah I know.. one of my servers was bandwidth clogged and took ages to upload a build..
11:08:22Bagderand 4 servers didn't participate at all
11:08:42JdGordonwe should BT the finished .zips instead of sending them back to the build server
11:09:04perplexityBitTorrent.. nice idea..
11:09:29SlasheriBagder: please try now again, shadowMax should be now 0 already has a bittorrent system setup on it ;)
11:09:42Bagderbut then all build servers would need to allow bittorrents, which I think is a bad idea
11:09:53JdGordon... or at least say the builds are done before having to send all the zips back.. that would speed it up slightly wouldnt it?
11:10:01BagderI'm quite sure the amount of servers I herd do not have that setup
11:10:26perplexityyeah, one of mine does.. the other does not and really should not.. anyway
11:10:28BagderSlasheri: working now, great!
11:10:35SlasheriBagder: great :)
11:10:41Bagder"-!- You have 8 messages in your INBOX, 8 NEW messages!"
11:10:48Slasherihehe :D
11:11:31BagderJdGordon: yes, but getting the zip at once will allow us to clean the build dirs afterwards
11:11:39Bagderwhich I hope to add one day
11:12:07perplexityssh brad@bklaptop2:~$ ssh du -hc | tail -n1
11:12:08perplexity1.4G total
11:12:11perplexitywould be nice.. :)
11:12:30Bagderthere's talk about upgrading the bandwidth for our main server too within the near future
11:12:40JdGordonwhy would it affect it? copy the .zip to a temp dir, send back the build log, then when all builds are done send back the zips and show the results on the cvs page with a message "zips being uploaded.. be patient"
11:12:47perplexityalthough I suspect leaving the build dirs as is probably helps with the build times anyway mostly
11:13:08Bagderperplexity: no, we do clean builds anyway
11:13:19***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
11:13:20Bagderso ccache is what helps us, not the leftovers
11:13:28perplexityAhh.. I'd not really looked at how it was done..
11:13:42BagderJdGordon: I don't think the effort of doing that is worth much
11:13:45perplexityyes, ccache works nicely.. I've been monitoring the cache usage
11:13:46JdGordon... which doesnt help when the servers arnt given the same builds each time... but thats something else :p
11:14:00Bagderas long as we are < 5 mins, I don't give much effort into optimizing the build script
11:14:11perplexityMy biggest problem is one of my servers is severely bandwidth choked..
11:14:47BagderI should possibly enhance the script to only hand out "zip builds" to servers with good bandwidth
11:15:03perplexitynot a bad idea actually.. it's a fast build but a slow upload..
11:15:11JdGordon:) same problem here
11:15:12Bagdera common problem
11:15:26Bagderin JdGordon's case, we have that "solved" by only sending it sim builds
11:15:50Bagderbut it is a bit limited
11:16:23perplexityyou could do that with if you liked.. it's in a similar boat.. fast machine with all the fruit, but just choked..
11:17:01JdGordonye, it would work better if i got the boot builds which are small and fast while the better servers got the other stuff which does take a while..
11:17:21JdGordonperplexity: take the compilers out of rbclient's PATH
11:17:36perplexityJdGordon ?
11:17:42BagderJdGordon: that's not the way, it'll only break the builds
11:17:59perplexityTook me long enough to figure out how to get them *in* there..
11:18:12JdGordonBagder: ah ok...
11:18:16JdGordonperplexity: ignore me :D
11:18:22perplexityI'd just say leave it as is unless the slow link starts to prove a problem..
11:18:24Bagderthe main server decides what servers that can do what builds

11:41:50Slasherihmm, just trying to implemented a feature that will show wps immediately when selecting a file to play even without disk spinning up
11:45:12Slasheriah, but it seems that is not so trivial to implement as i think because playlist creation and showing of the wps happens in the same thread
11:47:46nlsWhy do you want to show the wps before anything is playing?
11:48:25Slasherii just thought ui response would feel better (it would show up the actual filename (and tags if tagcache is loaded in ram) immediately in wps when selecting a file
11:48:51Slasheribut now the problem is that it's not trivial to update the wps.. so maybe i don't try this more at the moment
11:49:29nlsBut then it would sit there doing nothing untill the disk has spun up... Maybe some sort of loading.. indication would be nice?
11:49:52Slasheriyep.. a loading splash could then display above the wps
11:50:23nlsYes that would be nice.

16:54:53leftrightSlasheri: There's an interesting bug report #5966, tagcache issue which the users resolved, but perhaps the scan should ignore mp3 files of 00:00 length
17:00:31Slasherileftright: hmm, in fact that is caused by the metadata parser and not tagcache itself
17:01:08Slasheriand since metadata is needed to know song length, we can't really skip those files.. a test file would be needed to make it crash on simulator and then fix the metadata parser
17:01:16leftrightoh i see, but it does impact tagcahes scan negatively, just thought I'd mention it

17:13:41nlsthe audi thread screen didn't like usb
17:14:51nlsSlasheri, I don't know if this has anything to do with the new scheduler but when I updated today I tried to make a little boost percentage test before and after.
17:15:22nlsAnd to mee it seems like the pcm buffer is filled more often.
17:15:49nlsIt never drops below ~400000
17:16:02Slasherinls: yes, i have changed that on purpose
17:16:18Slasheribecause with ipods too low pcm buffer causes buttons unresponsive
17:16:41nlsbut istn't it more efficient to switch cpu frequency less often and do more each time?
17:17:14Slasheriyes, but i think we really need to call it very often to make any measurable difference
17:18:25nlsAnyway, it seems to have dropped bosst by 1% on my q6 ogg/vorbis files :-)
17:18:33nlsboost even
17:18:50Slasherisounds good, i have also measured a 2-3% boost drop with q8 vorbis :)
17:19:49Slasherithe more often task switch happens, the more efficient the new scheduler is
17:21:38Soapso is this going to affect battery life at all?
17:22:40dionoeait's going to affect it since the CPU requires more power when boosted (at least, that's how i understand it)
17:23:37SoapIs boost going to be reduced across the board, or only when performing two tasks (ie playback and WPS / playback and scrolling)?
17:24:26Soap The reason I ask is my recent runtime tests were performed while in the menu, not the WPS, and I'm curious if I need to run them again.

18:03:51amiconnThat would enable really nice colour card bitmaps, especially for large screens

18:05:30amiconnIt would also simplify adding more different card sizes for various LCDs

19:33:52Rickdepends on how it was applied
19:34:12SamAdamsFYI: 1) I just starting using my iRiver since it finally started working with WMP v11 after a clean install since the product first came out :P 2) I started with original firmware v1.0, then I did the following...
19:35:08SamAdamsFirst 1) downloaded the firmware v1.66 from, 2) dloaded patcher from and patched it
19:35:35SamAdams3) finally figured out how to load up in UMS mode (which was frustrating and needs to be added to the instructions :) )
19:35:36jhMikeSthe fix to voice bugs was simple...don't send voice messages if it's not the current hangs them
19:36:11SamAdams4) copied the patched hex file to main root
19:36:34SamAdams5) safely disconnected from USB and then rebooted iRiver
19:37:07SamAdams6) found the "setting" menu with my "joystick", which I assume means the dial pad...
19:37:38SamAdams7) there was NO "general" tab to upgrade my firmware...couldn't find this option in ANY I'm pretty pls?
19:37:41linuxstbSamAdams: I think you're following the instructions for the H1x0 or H3x0, not the H10...
19:37:53SamAdamsoh no

19:51:17SamAdamsbtw, since I couldn't find the general tab in settings, I updated to the latest firmware before I followed the H10 directions :( is that what did it? or...maybe copying the .hex file to the main root per the 110 directions?
19:51:47linuxstbCopying the .hex file shouldn't have harmed anything - your h10 firmware would just ignore it.

19:55:22linuxstbThat's fine - the 58k file is just the Rockbox bootloader. You will also need to download Rockbox itself from and unzip that zip file to the root of your H10.

20:17:13Ed__webguest81: i guess so - it's only my first day as a rockbox user ;0
20:17:15linuxstbSamAdams: When it comes to configuring the FLAC encoder, add the option "−−seekpoint=1s" - that will add seekpoints with 1-second accuracy to the files. These are very useful with Rockbox.
20:17:47SamAdamsyou mean with EAC right? not in rockbox?

21:18:13 Join t0mas [0] (n=Tomas@rockbox/developer/t0mas)
21:19:41Learsamadams: the mp3 icon is for compressed rips, regardless of compressor used.
21:19:54linuxstbSoap: Which version of the Apple firmware are you testing? Have you upgraded your 5g to the latest?
21:21:01SamAdamsi see
21:21:23SamAdamsI just realized it is ripping in do I setup the default for the FLAC codec rip?
21:24:29SamAdamsI think I understand...I need to dload the Flac codec still...was thinking EAC was specifically for FLAC with MP3 secondary option...I misunderstood
21:26:25nudelyn(has FLAC too)

22:58:00sharperguyI've been checking out stuff about rockbox
22:58:05peturamiconn (or anybody): for GPIO interrupts, the manual says set GPIO_FUNCTION register bit to 1 or 0 for interrupts, as applicable <−− do you need to set it to function to use it as int source?

22:58:52peturtype 4
22:59:23peturit's a channel about rockbox
22:59:28sharperguyi mean like. development only, support, rock-based banter etc
22:59:41peturdev and support I guess
22:59:41linuxstb_All of the above.
23:00:36sharperguyI'm just wondering if anyone has any good ideas about what player I should buy to use with rockbox
23:01:02elinenbelinuxstb: so, how's it coming with the wma codec? are you getting realtime output?
23:01:02peturdepends on what you want to do with it
23:01:07sharperguythe main things i need are voice recording
23:01:19sharperguyand hard drive capacity
23:01:22peturbuild-in mic or line-in
23:01:26BigMaciriver h100 seems to be the concensus(if you can get your hands on one)
