01:23:13dpassenAnyone know why flashing the latest rockbox.iriver on an H140 results in incompatible version?
01:27:30Paul_The_NerdYou mean the flash plugin tells you that?
01:27:46Paul_The_NerdI'm *guessing* because you're running an old version of Rockbox from flash, and your flashing plugin is newer than it.
01:27:55Paul_The_NerdHave you tried ROLOing into the new Rockbox.iriver first?

01:36:34markunhello naltrus
01:37:09naltrussomebody knows if rockbox will support to Philips HDD6320 ?
01:37:43markunmaybe, but we haven't found a key to decrypt the firmware
01:39:40markunwe need a .bl file for you player (I don't know much about this)
01:39:49markunIs there such a file on it?

01:44:47markunmaybe, I don't know
01:44:57naltrusthanks markun
01:46:53markunWithout a developer with such a device there will be no port. Is there a forum of HDD63xx users where you can ask for help?

03:07:20pagefaultit's pretty much a beef up ipod nano
03:07:27pagefaultit shares a lot of the same hardware
03:09:16pagefaultiriver is hopeless with firmware though
03:10:29rigelwhy does rockbox not do usb
03:10:45rigeli have to put it into emergency mode when i want to transfer files
03:10:47Soapthe USB chip isn't documented
03:10:48pagefaultit does
03:10:53pagefaultturn it off
03:10:57pagefaultconnect the usb
03:11:00pagefaultthen turn it on
03:11:12rigelemergency connection does, or yeah, using the iriver firmware
03:11:19pagefaultor do you have a US model?
03:11:22rigelwhat usb chip is it, are there pics?
03:11:26rigeli have a us model, yes
03:11:36pagefaultyou should flash to euro model
03:11:38pagefaultUMS device
03:11:41amiconnUSB has to be done in software on the PP
03:11:43rigelits a 20g
03:11:45rigelnot a 5gb
03:12:06rigeli can get it as a UMS by using the emergency mode
03:12:12rigelwhich is how i transfer files all the time
03:12:22amiconn(1) we have no USB stack in rockbox. (2) there is no documentation about how the USB part of the PP works
03:12:36rigelmaybe an updated firmware that always uses the ums emergency shit? i never use the MTP or whatever it is
03:13:00 Join Spida [0] (
03:13:09pagefaultI updated my 5gb model to UMS firmware from MTP
03:13:13pagefaultso it always boots to UMS
03:13:23amiconnMany other supported targets use a dedicated USB-ATA (or USB-MMC) bridge chip, which we just need to enable
03:13:37rigelpagefault: there is no corresponding firmware for the 20gb
03:14:01pagefaultthat sucks
03:14:41***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
03:14:54amiconnSo USB on PP targets (i.e. iPods and H10) is left to the OF or emergency disk mode for now
03:16:33pagefaultI feel your pain MTP is slow and annoying
03:16:55rigelpagefault: i see no point in it whatsoever
03:17:04rigeli dont use windows media player, on general principle
03:17:16pagefaultit was only put there so they can sell you DRM songs
03:17:20rigelplus, most of my mp3s are on a server i scp to
03:17:30rigelwith mtp, i cant change the iriver to the destination

03:44:05Davide-NYCany news on WMA decoding?
03:45:01Adamalright i need some help and maybe some1 can help me. right now i have a video iPod with rockbox and no apple and im trying to restore apple for battery life reasons.... i have foobar and foo_pod and is there a way i can rebuild the database so when i boot into apple i will be able to navigate all my songs without making duplicates, right now ive got all my songs on my iPod in folders such as ARtist and so on
03:45:25Soaphow do you have rockbox and no apple firmware?
03:45:33Adami deleted apple firmware lol
03:45:43Adami can still boot into it, but the songs arent there because i deleted the db
03:45:55Adamknow what i mean now?
03:46:45Soapas I understand, the apple database /can/ work with songs you add manually to the HD of the ipod, but is _severely_ limited as to path/filename length, so the odds are you will not be able to build the itunes database from songs you added to your player's filetree.
03:47:15Soapahh, so you didn't delete the applefirmware, you just deleted all your songs from the ipod database and it's funky ipod_control folder.
03:48:50SoapSomeone else can probably answer what the maximum filename length is for songs to be added to the itunes database, but my suggestion would be to remove all your music added "filetree" style for rockbox, and readd through foo_pod. Then when you want to use RockBox you can access those songs through tagcache instead of filetree browsing.
03:48:51Adamive heard the limit is 127 characters
03:48:53Adamnot that limited
03:49:28Davide-NYC*cough* UMS
03:49:41Soapyou are right, 127 isn't /that/ limiting. I have a couple longer, but not my majority.

05:43:05jhMikeSJdGordon: lemme see before I go to bed :) The menus for recording are now excessively will it work for that?
05:43:21JdGordonit shuold
05:43:55JdGordoni have to test on the target tho.. because all menus are treated as dynamic.. which could slow stuff down
05:44:24jhMikeSAny arbitrary set of items can be hidden/removed without rewriting the entire array or something?
05:44:58JdGordonit checks each sub item and asks if it shuold be showed.. if there is no callback then it always is
05:45:22jhMikeSWill each item maintain an id too instead of just a position? That would really help a lot.
05:45:42JdGordonwhat do u mean?
05:46:34jhMikeSAssign an id to identify the particular menu item independent of its index in the array.
05:47:31JdGordonthe callback recieves the action and the menu's menu_item_ex struct pointer.. so it can identify itseld
05:47:33jhMikeSof course I can just use the string or function pointer as an id...
05:48:10JdGordonwhat im going to add is one really big callback that all dynamic items can ptut hemselves in, instead of having a new function for each

05:48:28JdGordonthere is no speed difference on the h300 with this hadnling so its good to go :D

05:49:05JdGordonno, but ones which are just checking one vairbalae...
05:49:10JdGordonrecording can have its own :p
05:49:57jhMikeSI'd like to have the option for anything at all...per module/menu/item or whatever. I'll definitely need per menu.
05:51:04JdGordonok, no prob
05:52:15jhMikeSI'm not sure how you give a known constant to a function to id the item. I'd like to keep the initial list local...but I haven't seen anything yet I guess. :)
05:53:21JdGordonhmm.. just found a bad bug... :(
05:54:56JdGordonno, 2 big bugs
05:54:58jhMikeSat least you found it now instead of after numerous bug reports! :D Did a couple nasty ones in recording.
05:57:22JdGordon:) this is a big one.. it display the right list, but when u go into a menu item it wont acually enter the right one if the menu had any dynamic items
05:57:42JdGordonwhich was very easy to fix
05:58:15 Join JoeBorn [0] (
05:58:15JdGordonnow the only problem is it doesnt like dynamic items in the top level menu
05:58:56jhMikeShow does the compiled size compare to before?
05:59:25JdGordoni checked the recorder 2 days ago and it was 8.4kb smaller, which means rombox builds again
06:04:00rigelso, to run pacbox, i need to find a .rom?
06:04:06rigelis that how it works?
06:04:22JdGordonno, pacbox needs 5 (6?) special files
06:04:26JdGordoncheck the wiki for their names

11:29:46pondlifeOK, not a problem then
11:30:22webguest74ok with the one i did zip to my desktop why no files?
11:30:38bluebrotherwebguest74, I guess the folder is marked hidden
11:30:52webguest74oh ok i am on a mac just to let everyone know
11:31:24bluebrotherthe folder starts with a dot (.rockbox), and on unix systems files starting with a dot are hidden files.

11:32:15webguest74oh so I just download the zip file to ipod and extract
11:32:55scorchewebguest74: you can download the zip file anywhere you wish...just direct the extraction directory to the root of your device
11:33:50webguest74ok thanks vary helpfull
11:34:02LinusNi believe the mac way of doing things is to extract archives to the same directory as the archive
11:34:11LinusNextremely silly imho
11:34:31scorcheand there is no option to change the default?
11:34:33bluebrotherdoes "the mac way" include to have no other option?
11:34:36webguest74so i extract it and it is a folder and inside the folder is another folder called fonts?
11:34:50LinusNwebguest44: yes
11:35:01LinusNoops, tab completion :-)
11:35:15scorchefor the second time =)
11:35:19LinusNsaw that
11:35:52LinusNback when i had a mac, i had a really hard time trying to extract archives where i wanted them
11:35:53webguest74what should i do? just copy the folder inside the fonts folder to ipod?
11:36:18bluebrotherwebguest74, copy the archive to the root of the ipod. Extract all files there.
11:36:24scorcheLinusN: i am sure they have a shell command...
11:36:33LinusNwebguest74: i think the simplest way for you would be to download the archive to the ipod and then extract it there
11:36:38bluebrotherafterwards you can remove the archive
11:36:55webguest74ok done that thanks
11:37:23LinusNscorche: yes, but i'm not sure that the mac has a cmdline version of unzip
11:37:41scorchesilly macs...
11:37:46LinusNamen to that
11:38:27crwlit has
11:39:07webguest74when i click on browse fonts on rockbox nothing happens?
11:40:01bluebrotherwhat is "nothing"?
11:40:34webguest74I get no font chocies
11:41:05webguest74have to deal with this later
11:41:09 Quit webguest74 ("CGI:IRC")
11:42:19LinusNi think the default behaviour of the mac unzip tool is to ignore hidden folders
11:42:35scorcheugh....not another stupid behavior..
11:43:36LinusNah wait
11:44:13LinusNwhen he extracts, osx will create a folder with the same name as the zip, i.e "fonts"
11:44:33LinusNwhich contains .rockbox/fonts
11:44:54amiconnJdGordon: I don't think that the 'recent bookmarks' item should be hidden when the feature is switched off. Maybe there is still a list of bookmarks if the feature was enabled before...
11:44:54LinusNso he must still manually copy the contents to /.rockbox/fonts

11:49:06pondlifeCorrection on the way
11:49:36pondlifeThe test should have been for CONFIG_CODEC==SWCODEC
11:50:16pondlifeOr should an Archos device still allow for talk_get_bufsize?
11:51:03amiconnOn archos there is no separate talk buffer
11:51:29amiconnThe voice file is loaded into the main buffer on request, and flushed when playback needs the buffer
11:51:35pondlifeOK, well this may actually fix a bug

12:11:46LinusNHadaka: 8gb nano instead of a 20gb archos?
12:12:31HadakaLinusN: well, my archos was upgraded to a 40gb - but yeah, I've gone off the idea of keeping all my mp3's on a portable device as it is prone to breaking down and I can't get big enough hard drives anyway
12:12:54naltrusyes. I can access to all data (music, pictures, ....) with USB. bu the player use MTP to access USB and i can't not access to the real disc and this bootloader.

12:28:56tucozWe also have to add the flash section to h120/h140 manual sometime. But I think that will have to wait until the official bootloader is supporting flashing

14:39:45pondlifeAssuming scrolling will happen
14:39:49JdGordonbluebrother: i thought there was a fair bit of objection to that
14:40:10pondlifeYou'd need to have a one char margin at the right in that case... not simple
14:40:12bluebrotheriirc the only objection was the fact that the settings now have a setting ;-)
14:40:35bluebrotherbut imo it makes the menus look much better, especially on targets with a big screen.
14:40:36JdGordonbah, my changes make adding more settings painfully simple.. so bring em on :D

14:41:18JdGordonhow about a radio button sort of icon next to settings?
14:41:20bluebrotherat least he had a nice solution to the setting vs submenu
14:41:48JdGordoni mean, in the setting screen it shows radio buttons, in the menus it shows nothing
14:41:51pondlifeAre there any screenshots of patch 5833 around?
14:42:04bluebrotherand at least I liked it to see the value of a setting without going into the setting itself
14:42:06JdGordonthe forum thread has, probbly old ones tho
14:42:28pondlifeAh, the forum - that place I rarely visit....
14:42:38JdGordonwise man :D
14:42:52*JdGordon is slightly worried about this nano still not turning on...
14:43:50LinusNpondlife: seems to work
14:44:10pondlifebluebrother: Thanks
14:44:14pondlifeLinusN: Thanks
14:44:53pondlifeI quite like the output from 5833, although I prefer teh current, sparse look.
14:45:42pondlifeAh, I really don't like the 2 lines per option one
14:45:48bluebrotherthe nice thing was that you could turn it completely off
14:46:21LinusNi like the 2-line approach best
14:46:22*pondlife reads the forum thread
14:46:52LinusNmainly because it works on all screen sizes
14:47:31pondlifeNot too nice on the remotes though
14:47:58pondlifeAlso you effectively halve the vertical screen size when searching for an option
14:48:08pondlifeWhich is most of the use of menus.
14:48:51LinusNyes, but if you try to cram both the name and the value on one line, it will look terrible on small lcd's, or with a large font
14:49:08pondlifeWell, I prefer not to do that either
14:49:35pondlifeThe current menu is better IMHO
14:49:45JdGordonare the icons 6 verticle x 8 horizontal pixels or the other way around?
14:50:12pondlifeAn icon would be a good solution - although I would have icons turned off personally :-)
14:50:20*pondlife is Mr. Text Mode
14:50:41LinusNicons are badness imho
14:50:55JdGordonwhy? the space is there for them anyway
14:50:59pondlifeYes, but compatible with the tree view
14:51:01JdGordonit might look ok
14:51:22JdGordonit needs _something_ there is no way to tell which is a sub menu and which is a setting
14:51:39pondlifeI'd quite like to integrate the tree, tagtree and settings into one structure somehow, but that's another story.
14:51:40JdGordonthe difference from now is that the menus have a title also now
14:51:51pondlifeSo does the tree
14:51:57pondlifeOr rather it can
14:52:32JdGordonye, but what im saying is that currently the menus dont have a title, but settings do, so you know your in a setting if the title is there.. with my patch tjere is a title in both...
14:52:56LinusNJdGordon: where's the patch?
14:53:19JdGordonon the wiki in 2 min, let my just up the latest
14:53:34pondlifewiki? Surely you mean Flyspray ;-0

14:56:00amiconnImho 2 lines per setting are a big waste of screen estate, settings at the right are ugly on large screens and really ugly on small screens, and they won't work properly with long (==scrolling) menu items

14:57:11pondlifeAnd only affects that one row
14:57:15amiconnThe > will scroll as well
14:57:28pondlifeI'd rather it was fixed at the right
14:57:37JdGordonLinusN: yes, like i said.. WIP.. i still think that should eb the way to go tho...
14:57:41pondlifei.e. the scroll-zone is just including the text
14:57:46CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
14:57:46*JdGordon is being stubborn :p
14:57:56amiconnYeah, but the current scrolling implementation doesn't allow to specify a right margin
14:58:06pondlifeI never said it would be easy :-)
14:58:09amiconnThat will change with viewports...
14:58:22pondlifeOK, maybe allow > to scroll for now
14:59:04LinusNJdGordon: so you actually think it's a good idea with a settings format that gets incompatible when the language strings change?

15:03:05pondlifeJust don't do it again
15:03:39pondlifeYep. You can make up for it by testing the new one and not committing it.
15:03:56Slasherisure, i will try later today
15:04:09pondlifeAlthough I suspect jhMikeS has a larger rework up his sleeve
15:04:29pondlifeBut this one Works For Me
15:04:29Slasherihehe, in the last time you had the wish that i commit your playback patch soon ;)
15:04:30*_jhMikeS_ is checking the logs to see if there's any discussion about something he messed up
15:05:02 Nick _jhMikeS_ is now known as jhMikeS (
15:05:20pondlifeNothing messed up, but you may want to test out - not much changed from yesterday
15:05:47pondlifeSince then I've also removed those USB swaps and all seems well too.
15:05:52jhMikeSpondlife: rework...rather big...sw recording.
15:05:59pondlifeGood luck there something I should know?
15:06:31lowlightJdGordon: nobody liked the look of radio buttons for settings a few weeks ago when I talked about it...I've done checkmarks instead:
15:06:39amiconnjhMikeS: [09:16:13] <amiconn> jhMikeS: Does pcm_record still make sure the CPU is always boosted when recording from S/PDIF (h1x0)?
15:06:42LinusNJdGordon: calling file functions in the ATA callback seems risky at best
15:06:55jhMikeSamiconn: yes
15:07:23JdGordonlowlight: have u done the patch or just the mockup?
15:07:24jhMikeSThe only change yesterday was pcmrec_callback
15:07:55pondlifejhMikeS: Only that I'd like you to confirm that the playback.c mods in 6024 don't break recording.
15:08:09JdGordonLinusN: yes, thats probably why it has crashed on me a fwe times, im hopegin another set of eyes can see a safer way to do this
15:08:38amiconnlowlight: Rockbox has a checkbox widget for a very long time... just no code seems to use it
15:08:44jhMikeSpondlife: np
15:08:53LinusNthe current approach works because it is a single raw sector write
15:08:58JdGordonthe ata_callback_count variable should stop it calling itself over and over again, as well as the array will eventually be all nULL...

15:16:41mirak9jhMikes, this benchmark suggest that ffmpeg is faster than libmpeg2. Also maybe without using b frames for encoding we can decode faster
15:16:55preglowlike using mjpeg?
15:17:02preglowthat'll wreak havoc on the compression ratio
15:17:02JdGordonlowlight: cheers.. that looks much better :)
15:17:19preglowforget it, you said b frames, not p frames
15:17:43preglowwe can definitely decode faster without b frames, but they do some times help compression ratio a bit
15:19:42jhMikeSyep the voice bug is for the patch.
15:22:07markunmirak9: why do you use google cache for that?
15:22:20lowlightJdGordon: glad you made it work :)
15:22:41JdGordononly needed tiny fixes to compile
15:24:05mirak9markun google is faster often

15:28:30jhMikeSpondlife: ok...I see both bug are fixed (no freeze entering recording) but now Mic recording is not working at all. I don't think your change has anything to do with it. My cvs up showed a change to recording.c.
15:28:51preglowmirak9: with mpeg2 we'll reach that plus an ordinary codec
15:28:55preglowno problem
15:30:05jhMikeSpondlife: I remove your patch and confirm for Mic.
15:30:58pondlifeHmm, the recording change was me, but only affects the sim
15:31:35pondlifeI was attempting to simulate recording better, but no joy yet
15:33:26pondlifeNeither mod should affect Mic recording.. and it's working ok here (H340 inbuild mic)
15:33:28jhMikeSpatch removed and now I have mic back
15:33:37jhMikeSI'll try one more time
15:34:59mirak9preglow no problem ?? well I lack of ideas right now to optimise
15:35:15preglowmirak9: use more iram
15:35:20preglowlook at the motion estimation
15:35:32mirak9I know some work can be done on motioncompensation, that's the next candidate from profling analysis, but I really understand nothing to the code in this file

15:38:13jhMikeSI have to let voice stop first
15:38:18pondlifemp3_play_stop should be waiting for voice to stop
15:38:23jhMikeSthen the mic starts up
15:39:51jhMikeSIf I enter the screen in the middle of a clip recording doesn't work for mix
15:40:21mirak9preglow I am not sure if mpeg2 works on y u v planes speratly or at the same time. if it's separately maybe having one buffer plane could help, but it would be big 220*176, around 16k
15:41:12pondlifeDo you call anything that should stop voice?

20:10:45moozoohhi guys. a quick question for those who do some analog recording with their H300s. what would be better to get, an AA-driven 600 Ohm mic, or a passive 600 Ohm mic? which of them will be driven better, or there's no difference?
20:12:38peturan active mic or mic+preamp will give a higher signal, which is better because too much gain on h3x0 will introduce noise
20:12:53peturall depends on what you record of course
20:13:11peturif it's loud sounds, a plain mic will do too
20:14:04*petur runs off ("bbl")
20:14:49moozoohwell, i need an all-purpose stereo mic that would be more tolerant to loud sounds than H300's default one. when i tried recording some live show, it sounded like a sheet of paper tearing up on all the loud sounds (especially bass attacks)
20:16:42moozooheven with very low gain value set on the player, my mic clipped just by itself (nothing really surprising, though).

23:50:07bgmrk1got it!!
23:50:24amiconndrive letters are for partitions (and since Win2000, they are optional). Disk numbers are for physical disks
23:51:21bluebrotherdrive letters are optional? How can I access a drive without a drive letter?
23:51:50dionoeayou can mount drives like on linux with NTFS i think
23:52:19linuxstb_ipodpatcher uses the name "\\.\PhysicalDriveN" (where N is the drive number) to access the drive.
23:52:21bluebrotherI know of that mount possibility, but does this work for drives without a letter? I thought that drive still needed a letter.
23:52:25dionoea(i'm not sure if it's NTFS related ... or just windows XP)
23:52:32amiconnYou can mount a drive into an (NTFS) folder
23:52:42amiconnThe parent drive needs to be NTFS
23:52:43miraklinux in ubuntu is going to use the UUID of disk. this way you can change the channel or master/slave
23:53:00bluebrotherah, nice. I still thought this needed an additional drive letter.
23:53:02amiconnThe mounted drive can be NTFS or FAT, doesn't matter
23:53:33preglowdoes anyone know if gcc ever reduces a sin() call to a simple sin assembly instruction on targets that support it?
23:53:39preglowi just had a look at libm and nearly vomited
23:53:45linuxstb_bgmrk1: So is it working now?
23:53:48amiconnThe founding NTFS feature is called reparse points, and can be used for other neat stuff than just mounting disks
23:55:20bgmrk1ok so i did everything in step 1...
23:55:47bgmrk1last line i see is rockboot.bin: no such file or directory
23:55:50bgmrk1is that good?
23:56:00mirakamiconn: does the 2cycle stall after a store reminds you something ?
23:56:04 Quit _FireFly_ ("Leaving")
23:56:07bgmrk1this is after typing in "ipodpatcher -w N rockboot.bin
23:56:50bluebrotherthe ipodpatcher -w line?
23:57:17bgmrk1and i disconnected my ipod and it didn't restart :S
23:57:32linuxstb_No, that message isn't good...
23:57:45bgmrk1o dear...
23:57:53bgmrk1so should i start over?
23:57:58bgmrk1whiping my ipod yet again
23:58:05dionoeayour ipod is *dead*
23:58:08bluebrotherdid the ipod_fw step before produce any errors?
