00:02:12amiconnSlasheri: (re tagcache menu items) Is it really necessary to waste that much ram?
00:03:22amiconnmirak: Well the datasheet says it all. There's a stall when you do a store immediately followed by another store

If a subsequent STORE instruction is encountered within this 2-cycle window, it will be stalled until the resource again becomes available."

10:25:45hcshmm, would converting the iTunesDB to a Tag Cache database be workable?
10:26:23pondlifeWhy not just let it rescan? Are the files not tagged themselves?
10:26:29hcsthey are not
10:26:44pondlifeSorry, never used iTunes
10:27:07hcsIt'd be nice, though, for people just switching over from apple's firmware, to have immediate access to all the music (except the drm'd stuff)
10:27:24hcsas immediate as the conversion can be, that is
10:27:40*LinusN sees a potential bug in the build script

10:28:05pondlifeLinusN: hooray

10:30:05pondlifeFixable easily?
10:30:27LinusNyes, i'll just have to make sure that this really is the case
10:30:40linuxstb_I'm against itunesdb support for two reasons - 1) It can only be used for file formats itunes supports, so tagcache still needs to search the hard disk for other files; 2) The itunesdb is a constantly moving target - Apple change the format with every new release of itunes, so it will constantly be broken by Apple upgrades...
10:31:09hcsI'm for it for ease of transition
10:31:28hcsmy proposal won't be integrated into rockbox, in any case
10:31:35linuxstb_Are you willing to implement it, and then maintain it, reverse-engineering all of Apple's future changes/

10:32:02scorchemy ajbr is beeping at me again...
10:32:36hcsI'm willing to implement it now, yeah, and after I spend a bit of time studing the tag cache I'll do just that.
10:33:31*scorche still has yet to figure out where that beeping even comes from...
10:33:36hcsI'll check with my roommate's newer iPod/iTunes setup, I'd just be using libgpod for the DB access anyway
10:39:08LinusNcan we agree to rename "tag cache" to something that more describes what it really is, i.e a tag database?
10:39:26LinusNi have yet to see what makes it a cache
10:39:28*Bagder agrees
10:39:42Bagderit isn't just a db
10:39:57Bagderit is for songs/tracks and for meta data about them
10:40:12hcsa database thereof, no?
10:40:23Bagderyes, but "rockboxdb" doesn't say so
10:40:37hcsok, that was a joke anyway
10:42:46LinusNi think "tag database" is a good candidate
10:42:49linuxstb_hcs: You may find it easier to just tag your files...
10:43:42hcslinuxstb_: I don't think so, with code for generating the tag cache (er, database) and libgpod my work will be little indeed
10:43:42 Quit obo ("KVIrc 3.2.2 Anomalies")
10:43:53linuxstb_hcs: If there isn't such a tool for itunes already, maybe you could write one - i.e. update the tags in a music collection based on the data in the itunes DB. Nothing related to Rockbox.
10:43:57 Join obo [0] (i=hidden-u@
10:44:12LinusNhcs: why not use libgpod to tag your files instead?
10:44:39gromit`oops sorry :)
10:44:45linuxstb_hcs: The advantage is that you do it once, and then you're not reliant on the itunes db any more.
10:45:09hcswell, I'd like the db to still be there, so I can use the apple firmware
10:45:41LinusNhcs: nothing stops you from having both, if you tag your files
10:45:49hcsits a hangup I have with modifying the music files, probably some sort of disease
10:46:51linuxstb_I have the opposite hangup - I tag everything I get, and normally re-encode with my own FLAC settings if I get something in a lossless format.
10:47:31hcsthen we must do battle, you tagging and me doing nothing

11:51:10aliaskIt reads them from a .bmp
11:51:20LinusNyes, but that patch is a total mess
11:51:44aliaskYeah, it took me about 3 hours to get it to work
11:52:08aliaskAs for coding style, I wasn't really paying attention.
11:53:02LinusNare we talking about the same patch?
11:53:27Mmmmhere are Pauls icon on the recorder... and
11:55:51aliaskHrm, not sure - I'll find it.
11:56:07Paul_The_NerdAt the very least it's clear it's an icon and representative of something other than the number '00' :)

11:59:19pondlife"Comment by - Wednesday, 08 February 2006, 09:49PM" is a bit "useless"..

11:59:48pondlifeDon't worry - the useless amnesty starts here

12:00:17markunmray: the OS comes with the games
12:00:17Paul_The_NerdWell anonymous allows people to add information to bugs even if they're one of those "I hate signing up for anything" folks.
12:00:36aliaskLinusN: I like the ideas of that patch, I was thinking about some kind of statusbar WPS, because of the varying level of complexity that is desired by different users.
12:00:50pondlifeTrue, but makes it harder to follow up and get response when a bug has been fixed, which can be frustrating
12:00:53aliaskAnon. comments make it hard to get in contact with the OP.
12:01:04aliaskEr - what pondlife said.
12:01:14markunmray: but you need to download some wad files to play doom and roms to play with the gameboy emu
12:01:18pondlifeYes, but with correct grammar ;-)
12:01:42aliaskPsht - this is the internet!
12:01:52Paul_The_NerdHere's an idea: Make the status bar for all practical purposes an extra WPS entirely. Giving the option to define its height (for example, two lines, the second being the currently playing song, like some people have requested the ability to always see).
12:01:54LinusNaliask: yes, a statusbar config would be nice some day, but i think we could start in a small scale by allowing custom icons and custom height
12:02:25pondlifeMaybe this should wait until after viewports? Sounds like the statusbar will be a viewport...
12:02:38LinusNpondlife: maybe so
12:03:04pondlifeAlthough "after viewports" could prevent progress... is anyone actually working on that idea at all?

12:22:22pondlifeNo, I just wondered what sort of improvement over std that battery might give.
12:22:24Paul_The_NerdO11: You can't change what the capacity is. You can tell Rockbox what the capacity is so that it can better estimate remaining time (on players where that's calibrated)
12:23:54pondlifeYes, on the H300 it's still too pessimistic. I'm configured for 2600mAh for a close estimate, but I'm pretty sure that's wrong!
12:24:04hcsJdGordon: I'm trying to enable tagcache, when I go to the browser it says tagcache not ready, do I have to initialize it even if the .tcds are already there?

12:26:26O11i suppose it'd have to fit in the same ipod..
12:26:27pondlifeI'm making a custom build allowing up to 6000mAh, that should give me a day or 2 runtime...
12:26:38preglowargh, three more settings
12:26:39O11pondlife: how?
12:26:53O11pondlife: for the h300?

12:35:52Paul_The_Nerd2200 is reported to get like, 28+ hours on H300?
12:35:57pondlifeWell, if I was replacing (which doesn't seem too easy on the H340) then I'd go for the highest capacity I could get.
12:36:08O11at the moment I'm only getting an hour and a half on rockbox =P I'm not that fussy..

12:40:51O11looks like the best one..
12:40:58O11markun: haha.. snap..

12:49:33Slasherihcs: hmm, sounds interesting. but is there any benefits of writing that?
12:50:14hcsSlasheri: its mostly for me because I'd rather spend the time writing the converter than tagging the thousands of songs on my ipod
12:50:44hcsand i think it would be helpful for people just switching over to have nearly the same interface to access all their old songs
12:51:02Slasheripondlife: now that bug + duplicate entries after commit + deleting entries corrupting db should be fixed

14:00:02pondlifeAnyone object if I change the filetree spelling/number voicing to only trigger on hover? is the patch
14:00:38pondlifeMakes code smaller, more consistant, and should help scrollwheel users a bit.
14:02:01linuxstb_pondlife: I don't use the voice UI, so can't really comment. But I'm wondering if you've tested other values apart from 0.5s.
14:02:20pondlifeWell, I did consider making that configurable..
14:02:33pondlifeBut 1s was too long IMHO
14:02:42pondlifeAnd 0.5s seemed pretty good
14:02:56pondlifeSmaller would probably not be an option
14:03:02pondlifeWhat were you thinking?
14:03:35pondlifeWe really need a proper fix for the "already buffered voice problem" - lostlogic had an idea, but I can't work it out...
14:03:57hcsI must say I appreciate the simple structure of the tagcache, at least at the moment
14:04:20pondlifeKISS is a Rockbox principle.
14:04:39hcsand a good principle for this stupid
14:04:59linuxstb_pondlife: My first reaction was to think smaller than 0.5s, so was just curious if you had tested smaller values.
14:05:42pondlifeHmm, not really. But the idea was to use the same delay as for the thumbnail clips, which is there to prevent unwanted disk access, and is actually too short for me.
14:06:00pondlifeI would probably personally go for 0.75s.
14:06:08Mmmmamiconn: I have got rid of the M for now and used a nice Q icon I made and we are back to sysfont numbers.. hope you like it ;)
14:06:10pondlifeBut didn't want to slow it down for others.
14:06:15linuxstb_OK - as I said, I don't use voice ui...
14:06:41pondlifeI don't think many (non-blind) people do. I guess I'll commit it and see what the reaction is on the MLs.

14:15:11pondlifeI find it makes selecting a file while driving a bit easier - you get confirmation you are on the right file, if that makes any sense.
14:15:16amiconnThe real problem with voice on swcodec is that preemption doesn't work
14:15:32pondlifeYes, agreed.
14:15:37pondlifeDoes it work ok on Archos then?
14:15:48amiconnOn archos, you will only hear the last number even without a delay if you're scrolling fast
14:16:22pondlifeOK. Well any idea on how to make mp3_play_stop work well on SWCODEC?? ;-)
14:16:59pondlifeIt's not a queuing delay (either in talk or playback). It seems to be that the voice already got passed into the PCM buffer.
14:17:25amiconnlostlogic wanted to look into it...
14:17:45 Join damaki [0] (
14:17:50 Quit Mmmm ()
14:17:55pondlifeI assume pcmbuf.c needs a new entry point to reset voice buffer or something. I shall await lostlogic's input...
14:17:57amiconnIirc the problem is that the pcm buffer length cannot go below a certain threshold without causing ski
14:18:28pondlifeYes, but doesn't the voice have a dedicated PCM buffer?
14:18:39amiconnAlso iirc, pcm_playback does the mixing between main audio and voice - directly into the pcm buffer
14:19:52pondlifeI don't think that will need to change, if we can find a nice way to clear the queued PCM data from the voice buffer first..
14:19:57amiconnMy idea was to use 2 pcm buffers, and do the mixing in the isr
14:19:57lostlogicpondlife: no, there's not a separate buffer
14:20:07pondlifeAh, I misunderstood that then.
14:20:12lostlogicit's mixed into the main pcmbuffer as it's decoded
14:20:24lostlogicto fix this problem, it would need a dedicated buffer and something very close to just-in-time mixing
14:20:32amiconnpondlife: My idea is that there should be a separate buffer...
14:20:33pondlifevoicebuf = &fadebuf[PCMBUF_MIX_CHUNK] ?
14:20:40pondlifeIs that not a seperate buffer?
14:20:59pondlifeAlongside the crossfade buffer...
14:22:48pondlifeI have almost got my head around playback.c, but barely around pcmbuf.c - obviously!

14:23:31lostlogicit's only a uhh 1/4? 1/8? second buffer, and only used for one 'chunk' of voice at a time
14:23:38pondlifeAh, ok
14:23:57pondlifeSo the voce data has already gone through this too.
14:24:08 Quit lee-qid ("Trillian (")
14:25:02lostlogicyeah −− basically the voice codec decodes into that fadebuf[pcmbuf_mix_chunk] spot, and when it's done, it gets mixed into the (hoepfully correct) position in the main pcmbuffer
14:25:49pondlifeSo it should really have a seperate buffer that can be overwritten, and then mixed just-in-time, along with audio fade.
14:26:14pondlifeMight be beyond me for now at least.
14:26:38lostlogicI was kinda afraid to try the JinT mixing, because it seems like it would be too much processing to do in the FIQ or interrupt and I'm not sure where else it could possibly be done
14:26:40Genre9mp3OndioFM _is_ able to record from FM Radio, right?
14:26:57*linuxstb_ worries about how voice can work when Rockbox supports playback at varying samplerates (e.g. on ipods)..
14:27:40 Join lini [0] (i=pugsley@
14:28:07lostlogiclinuxstb_: we'd hafta resample the voice to the target sample rate before buffering it?
14:28:27pondlifeWe do that anyway, don't we?
14:28:48lostlogichmm, do we run it through the DSP? I forget.
14:28:50linuxstb_What if a voice clip spans two tracks with different samplerates?
14:29:06pondlifeWell a voice file (at 12kHz) is overlaid on the audio...
14:29:18 Join lee-qid [0] (
14:29:40lostlogiclinuxstb_: well when we've added that support then we'll also have a way to know what the sample rate of where we're playing from in the pcmbuffer is, so we'll know what sample rate to mix the voice at?
14:30:01preglowvoice is resampled

14:38:39mrayi have no clue - i tried to "start" the rockdoom
14:38:40Paul_The_NerdWhat happened when you ran the Doom plugin?\
14:38:47markun"The Doom plugin is NOT a viewer. It is run from the plugins list, similar to Jewels and the others."

14:39:12mrayi tried to do that as it was the only thing i was able to try :P

14:44:35hcsooh, keen
14:45:06mrayok i download the latest build for the h300 series now.
14:46:02mrayi unzip and get one file and one folder. "rockbox.iriver" and "/.rockbox"
14:46:05PaulJamthe latedt dayly for the h300 doesn't contaun any plugins

14:48:11mrayok i have the latest CVS now
14:48:26mrayand i think i just need to copy it over to my root directory now - right?
14:48:39amiconnGenre9mp3: Radio stopping when you go to the recording screen is deliberate.
14:48:42linuxstb_PaulJam: I think that's because the daily builds are built on, and that server has an old version of m68-elf-gcc which needs upgrading (the aac commit broke the Coldfire builds on pre 3.4.5 versions of m68k-elf-gcc)
14:49:11amiconnOn archos there is no audio multiplexer to select between line in and radio, instead, the radio is just jooked up in parallel with the line in socket
14:49:59Genre9mp3Oh.... so (1) doesn't make sense then, too
14:50:00markunmray: I think I have to appologise :) Just dowloaded the last daily build and can't see any plugins either.
14:50:08amiconnYou can verify that by enabling the radio, then connect the Ondio's 'line in' with a line in of your amplifier
14:50:33mrayi appreciate anny effort to help me - no need to appologize :)
14:50:48amiconnYou will hear the radio playing via the amplifier - meaning the Ondio's 'line in' works as a line out for radio...
14:50:52mrayso what do i do now?
14:51:10Genre9mp3amiconn: I see....
14:51:24markunmray: they are in the latest cvs build
14:51:43Genre9mp3amiconn: Everything's clear to me, now
14:51:45mraythe last entry on top you mean? :
14:52:17Genre9mp3amiconn: But I still think that there should be a "Record" option on Radio context menu on Archos
14:52:42Genre9mp3...and of course remove the "Record Screen" option
14:53:49mrayok i upgraded now and restart
14:53:52Genre9mp3Currently, a user isn't aware of this ability (to Record from Radio)
14:54:35mraycan i delete the .HEX file btw?
14:55:32amiconnGenre9mp3: It should be in the manual...
14:55:45pixelmaamiconn: it's not (yet)
14:56:52Genre9mp3Besides the manual, an option in the context menu would be good to have IMO
14:57:51Genre9mp3So a user could record by double-pressing mode OR by selecting "Record" from the menu

16:03:10amiconnSo (tmpcol & <constant>) >> n is still 32bit
16:03:18theli_uai see
16:03:23amiconnand if you shift it left by more than 31 bits, it will be zero
16:03:44amiconnJust using 0xf000LL etc for the constants should be enough

17:27:20Life^what mods do i need to run iDoom on rockbox?
17:27:32excitatoryok, but from what i understand, ogg decoding is more processor intensive and thus consumes more power, correct?
17:27:37oboexcitatory: ogg uses less power on a nano, but I don't know how much
17:27:56Paul_The_Nerd Life^: iDoom is for iPod Linux. It's not exactly something you can run on Rockbox.
17:27:59excitatoryahh.. interesting..
17:28:10rasherexcitatory: that's true on Coldfire (Iriver, Iaudio) but apparently not on ipod
17:28:11Paul_The_Nerdobo: I think they're about the same these days.

17:28:27rasherPeople should upload their battery benchmarks to my battery stats page, dammit!
17:28:32Life^can rockbox play any 3d games like that?
17:28:54Paul_The_Nerdobo: I don't think anyone knows exactly at this point, but MP3 has received more speedups on ARM than Ogg has.
17:29:12excitatorydoes that have anything to do with the multiple cores..or is that not completely implemented yet? last i checked, dan_a was making some nice progress..

17:59:24rasherDepends on what you want, unsurprisingly
17:59:41linuxstbI'm not sure if markun has actually used the gigabeat as a player yet though - he runs BSD, and afaik, the Gigabeat requires MTP to transfer files...
18:00:07rasheraren't there free implementations of mtp?

18:06:04linuxstbYou mean the h10 and h120?
18:06:14godzirraerr. yes.
18:06:23rasherWhich means it's more or less similar to ipods in terms of rockbox support
18:06:26godzirraYeah, I have an h120 now and it does everything I want.
18:06:33rasherso why switch?
18:06:46godzirraBecause its getting old and its starting to have problems sometimes.
18:06:52godzirraI think it may be the hard drive going bad. I'm really not sure.
18:07:03linuxstbIf I could only keep one of my DAPs, it would be the H140...
18:07:33godzirraSo H10 and H120 are based on different hardware? (i.e. portalplayer for H10 and something else for H120?)

21:50:14woodensoulHey guys, I'm modifying a WPS to my liking and wanted to know of there is a tag for album or track ReplayGain info.
21:53:42*linuxstb_ investigates the red builds...
21:56:26woodensoulIf there is, there doesn't appear to be anything in the documentation about it.

21:57:31 Join JoeBorn [0] (
21:58:33nlswoodensoul, You are right it seems to be missing from documentation but is indeed there the tag is called rg and it seems to return a number based on the replaygain setting and not if the file has the tag...
21:59:36woodensoulI wanted the album gain specifically.
21:59:51nlsor if that's what you wanted great! :) looking at the code I *think* itt will be 1 for disabled and 2 and 3 for track and album (not sure of the order)
21:59:54 Join niskel [0] (
21:59:55woodensoulI saw on the mistic river site that on a non-official build &ra is for album gain.
22:00:08 Quit [H5N1] (Remote closed the connection)
22:00:36woodensoulI meant %ra

22:01:23 Join Riblet [0] (n=ribs@
22:02:19woodensoulSo there is no way to display track gain and album gain simultaneously on a WPS?

22:02:54 Quit lostnihilist (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
22:03:06nlswoodensoul, it displays the *setting* not the value.
22:03:07woodensoulI'm not interested is displaying the setting. I wanted to display the actual value of the album or track gain in dB.
22:03:12 Quit _FireFly_ ("Leaving")
22:03:41woodensoulSo displaying the value is impossible?
22:03:45nlsthere's no such tag in cvs afaik
22:03:47miraklinuxstb: hum i managed to build the mpeg2 decodeur exemple in apiexemple.c, so know the hardest will be to integrate to rockbox
22:03:51woodensoul*in the official build*

22:12:26mirakyou can choose which codec to keep in config.h, so I kept most of libavutil and some other direct dependencies relative to includes in libavcodec.
22:12:37mirakdoes gcc build the unused fonctions ?
22:13:23linuxstb_Yes - if they are in the same .c file.
22:13:41linuxstb_The linker won't include any completely unused .o files.

22:15:02woodensoulWould anyone else be interested to have replaygain track and album values be available for WPS display?

22:19:14linuxstb_Moos: Can you find the patch?
22:19:54Moosyou didn't find it?
22:20:46mirakI have a .o file for the file I want as binary
22:20:47linuxstb_woodensoul: There are many reasons patches are not in CVS - e.g. they are out of date, or written in the wrong way, or don't compile on all targets, or simply that no-one with CVS access has looked at it.
22:20:49woodensoulI submitted a feature request.
