00:00:58unstableWhere can I get screenshots?
00:01:26Dma-Scbah i'm setting up an environnement following the latest cygwin instruction, so that it'll be fine
00:02:47Paul_The_Nerdunstable: Have you looked in the manual?
00:07:03unstableahh, I see
00:07:05unstablethanks Paul_The_Nerd
00:09:03unstableDoes Rockbox support ogg(theora+vorbis) and/or ogm(theora+vorbis)?
00:09:31Paul_The_NerdRockbox doesn't support Theora at all
00:09:39Paul_The_NerdWhich is why it's not listed as doing so anywhere...
00:10:28 Join Jungti1234 [0] (n=jungti12@
00:10:31Jungti1234hi there
00:11:03preglowunstable: only video rockbox somewhat supports is mpeg1/2
00:11:14preglowunstable: theora is probably way to cpu intensive for rockbox to be able to use it very well
00:12:01scorchePaul_The_Nerd: can you add an option from within the mobile version of the forums to return to the regular version?...recently, i have been accessing the phone version when the regular version is better for my phone
00:13:29unstableWhat is a good portable music playing device to buy? archos/ipod/creative/iriver?
00:13:47unstableIs there a site anywhere comparing average lifetime until death?
00:14:07Paul_The_Nerdscorche: In all honesty, I haven't yet looked at the mobile version's source at all so I don't know what I can/cannot do. Have you tried going to; instead of;wap2 ?
00:14:42scorchePaul_The_Nerd: i havent messed with it yet...but i will try
00:15:06Paul_The_Nerdscorche: I remember finding some way to change what parameter I passed index.php to get the normal version, but I honestly can't remember what right now. I just know I've gotten to it on my phone
00:15:26scorcheyeah...i used to go to the reg version
00:15:37scorchebut something was changed in the past few weeks i guess
00:16:09Paul_The_NerdThat's strange. I haven't changed anything in the last few weeks, other than putting up the new menu bar.
00:16:22scorchemonth or 2?
00:16:55Paul_The_NerdMaybe when I updated the software version the forum was running n?
00:17:30scorcheugh...blazer is getting on my nerves...i wonder if i should just get opera (but it takes up so much space!)

02:56:39d1ry4nCan someone tell me what my cheapest target HW platform would be? I don't wan't to use my main player for development.
02:58:08Paul_The_NerdWhat exactly are you asking?
02:58:17 Quit toad__ (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
02:58:32Paul_The_NerdWhat kind of development were you planning to do, and why can't you use your main player?
02:58:40NsNI don't really know about the archos and iriver players, but you could try to get a refurbished ipod nano for about 90$
02:59:07 Quit [H5N1] (Remote closed the connection)
02:59:20NsNJust don't get one of the new ones with the full metal casing
03:00:23d1ry4nI'm looking at doing application feature development, possibly porting as well. I have a Sansa e250 and I don't want to take the chance of destroying it.
03:00:28NsNBut i guess you could get one of the iriver or archos player for less, if you look around on ebay
03:00:35 Join [H5N1] [0] (
03:01:22Paul_The_Nerdd1ry4n: I believe the only people who've destroyed theirs overwrote the bootloader, right?
03:01:33Paul_The_Nerdd1ry4n: But for something similar, an iPod Nano would be ideal.
03:01:53Paul_The_NerdNsN: Actually, you're going to be hard pressed to find a Rockbox supported iRiver for less than a Nano.
03:02:00 Join toad_ [0] (
03:02:26d1ry4nEventually I'll be taking it apart to mess around inside, and I'm gonna break it. It's gonna happen, I'm sure of it.
03:03:19Paul_The_NerdWell, taking it apart is different from application development by a long shot.
03:03:50d1ry4nyes. but, i can't resist hardware.

03:04:35d1ry4nthanks for the tips everyone!
03:05:01NsNYou're welcome
03:05:35pagefaultiriver is selling refurb h320 for $160
03:06:00pagefaultI think
03:06:03pagefaultsomething around that range
03:07:08NsNIf i understand the homepage correctly there is no difference between the ipod and other players, in regard to the rockbox features, right?
03:07:31NsNNegative differences for the ipod i mean.
03:07:41Paul_The_NerdThe iPod's a bit earlier in development so the battery life isn't great yet.
03:07:59Paul_The_NerdAnd the equalizer can cause the music to skip because things aren't as optimized as they could be.
03:08:12 Quit damaki_ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
03:08:47NsNI remember that some time ago a few features weren't available for the ipod, but now it seems, that the ipod actually has more than some of the other players.
03:08:57Paul_The_NerdFeatures like what?
03:09:21Paul_The_NerdOther than things like FM radio, which only works on players that actually have a radio chip, Rockbox features are nearly identical on all targets since it's actually the same software being run on all of them
03:10:04pagefaulth10 is wonderful too if you can find a 5/6gb model
03:10:16pagefault20gb can be annoyance due to MTP
03:10:32NsNWell, on the page it says e.g. that doom is not possible on Archos models. I think i saw something like that for ipods as well (that was about 6 months ago)
03:11:02Paul_The_NerdDoom isn't really a feature.
03:11:09Paul_The_NerdBut the Archoses are just far too slow (hardware restricts it)
03:11:11pagefaultdoom is just a "wow it runs it"
03:11:14Paul_The_NerdAnd it plays fine on the iPods nowadays
03:11:37JdGordonno, doom isnt really usable on the ipod
03:11:44Paul_The_NerdJdGordon: The controls suck.
03:11:45JdGordonthe kjeys ont work too well
03:11:47Paul_The_NerdBut it's perfectly playable
03:11:51Paul_The_NerdI've beaten several levels
03:11:55pagefaultipod what
03:12:15pagefaultyeah I can't play it on my h10
03:12:28JdGordondoom on the h300 is a fair bit better :p cept those keys break your fingers after a while :p
03:12:29pagefaultthe keys are too awkwrd
03:12:41pagefaultbut it runs full speed
03:12:47pagefaultor at least fast enough to play
03:13:26pagefaultI wish I could hook a keyboard up to it
03:13:34pagefaultor a gamepad
03:13:52pagefaultmaybe something rigged through the remote port
03:14:23NsNWhich of the supported players would be the most powerful in terms of mhz / mips / flops or something like that?
03:14:36Paul_The_NerdNsN: Depends on how you're judging
03:15:09Paul_The_NerdThe iRiver H100/H300 and iAudio X5 are all clocked up to 124mhz, but the iPod has two 75mhz cores.
03:15:11 Quit [TCK] (Read error: 145 (Connection timed out))
03:15:41NsNYeah, but the second core on the ipod is only used in maybe 3 programs so far
03:16:06JdGordonim not actually sure if anything uses the 2nd core yet
03:16:11NsNAll of those are ARM cores?
03:16:39JdGordonno, iriver hxxx and x5 are coldire
03:16:42pagefaultI think everything is done on the same core right now
03:17:12NsNI know that the ipodlinux gameboy emulator uses the second core, and i think idoom does as well, so the rockdoom might also use it.
03:17:20Paul_The_NerdNsN: iRiver H100/H300 and iAudio X5 are m68k, the Archos models are SH1, and the iPods and H10 are ARM7
03:17:32Paul_The_NerdNsN: Rockdoom is not based off of iDoom.
03:17:38JdGordonNsN: iPL and rockbox share no code
03:17:41NsNSo they are even less comparable...
03:17:43pagefaultI got another hour out of that recent patch for the H10 though

03:20:56NsNHmm, that seems like a bit of a waste, But then again most users seem to think that there is a direct competition between rockbox and ipodlinux...
03:21:31Paul_The_NerdHow is it a waste?
03:21:49Paul_The_NerdiPodLinux is linux based, with very different goals than the Rockbox project, so there's not terribly much to be reused.
03:22:06Paul_The_NerdAs well, Rockbox's goals include being cross-platform.
03:22:24NsNThe code could not be reused directly hardware wise, but maybe on algorithm level.
03:22:36Paul_The_NerdFor what?
03:22:46bawb2can anybody point me to some web resources on c programming and audio?
03:23:10pagefaultconsidering ipodlinux doesn't run on anything not an ipod
03:23:13*scorche points bawb2 to
03:23:14pagefaultI don't see how it's a competition
03:23:23***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
03:23:24NsNFor example the mpeg-plugin, i guess there is quite a lot of optimisation in there
03:23:26pagefaultor some kind of code competition
03:23:33pagefaultrockbox is like a firmware replacement
03:23:38bawb2scorche: i've tried many queries, i'm not exactly sure how to find these things
03:23:41Paul_The_NerdNsN: Well, iPodLinux is free to use our MPEG code if they want. It is GPLed.
03:23:44NsNbawb2: for windows, linux, rockbox, mac os?
03:23:51pagefaultis what I mean
03:24:00pagefaultrather than trying to be an OS and more
03:24:08scorchebawb2: if you want to find out about something, wikipedia is good as well
03:24:24bawb2NsN: well, im developing on linux, but my goal is for rockbox
03:24:53NsNbawb2: For linux you might want to search for oss or Open Sound System
03:25:08pagefaultif you are one of the people like me then rockbox is the only way you will get vorbis or aac or things like that
03:25:15pagefaultwho have a H10
03:25:22pagefaultbecause iriver will never do it
03:25:56 Join tvelocity [0] (
03:26:44NsNpagefault: I've got a nano, right now i'm using the default firmware and rockbox for audio, rockbox for some games (bubbles) and ipodlinux for a few useful programs and videos
03:26:44pagefaultstill waiting on that audible support that was on the box
03:26:51pagefaultbut was never in the player
03:28:00pagefaultNsN, I do that also for my H10 but because rockbox doesn't support the FM tuner in it yet
03:28:00NsNYes, rockbox is definately the best way to get support for additional codecs, or just to use the player as a "drag and drop player"
03:28:05pagefaultor the recorder
03:28:07Paul_The_Nerdpagefault: Ever considered contacting some sort of consumer protection agency regarding the false packaging?
03:28:50pagefaultPaul_The_Nerd, sometimes but it probably won't get me anywhere
03:28:58pagefaultthey are based in korea, what is going to happen
03:29:17 Quit Quazgaa (Connection timed out)
03:29:34Paul_The_Nerdpagefault: True, and it's not even an actively sold product these days, I suppose.
03:30:00pagefaultPaul_The_Nerd, it wasn't the reason I bought the player but for someone who might have it would not be nice for them
03:30:27Paul_The_NerdEspecially since iRiver was advertising Audible support.
03:30:51pagefaultso I am resulting to grey area methods of playing my books which I purchashed
03:30:59pagefaultexcuse me, purchased
03:31:30pagefaultI am just happy rockbox does bookmarks
03:31:34pagefaultit makes it a huge help
03:32:08Paul_The_NerdI've resorted to a few of those gray area methods myself, before I got a nano.
03:32:54pagefaultyeah probably my next player will be a nano
03:33:06pagefaultbut we'll see what iriver comes out with, so far they are only dealing with low end stuff
03:33:54pagefaultsomething with a removable battery is nice though
03:34:04pagefaultI have two of them so I just swap when I need to
03:34:08Paul_The_NerdThat's part of why I like the Sansa.
03:34:26Paul_The_NerdI'd love it if it either supported Audible content, or we got Rockbox working on it. Either one would be good.
03:35:22pagefaultwell I work on zsnes which was all reverse engineering the snes, you just need to know whats in it
03:35:33pagefaultand find some docs if you are lucky
03:35:40pagefaultand mostly run your own tests
03:35:41Paul_The_NerdNot gonna happen with the PortalPlayer chipset.
03:35:46NsNI was just wondering how much interest is there for video support on rockbox and how fast the development of mpegplayer is going.
03:35:56Paul_The_NerdAnd the frustrating part is that it has a *lot* of hardware on the chip. Like, I believe, the USB controller.
03:36:30pagefaulta lot of co-processors like on-cart stuff like DSP-1 used on mario kart was all done by just feeding it values and recording the data
03:36:42pagefaultand figuring out what each register did
03:36:44Paul_The_NerdNsN: Frankly, many of us just don't care, since we bought our devices to be music players. But what's holding it back is that the person who did most of the up front work is waiting for Dual Core support to be working on the iPod targets. And nobody with an iRiver wants it enough to work on the audio support for the iRivers, or optimizations.
03:36:46pagefaultnot a fun process
03:36:52 Join XavierGr [0] (
03:37:52pagefaultwell I would love to help
03:37:58pagefaultbut I don't know enough about my player
03:38:10Paul_The_NerdWhich player do you have?
03:38:12NsNPaul_The_Nerd: Yepp, i'm pretty sure that the audio part won't work without the coprocessor. I'm quite impressed that the whole video part works
03:38:18pagefaultH10 5gb
03:38:42Paul_The_Nerdpagefault: Have you been here:
03:39:07pagefaultI have but the problem is I am totally lost in the code
03:39:19Paul_The_Nerdpagefault: Ah, just making sure you knew where we kept our datasheets, scans, etc.
03:39:25pagefaultyeah I have all those
03:39:49pagefaultI made an attempt at getting the tuner working
03:40:00pagefaultbut there were so many ifdefs for the other players I couldn't find them all
03:40:03Paul_The_NerdNsN: It'll certainly help a lot. In theory, if audio were handled by the COP, we could get the same framerates we already do after adding audio.
03:40:07pagefaultand it was such a pain I gave up
03:40:13Paul_The_Nerdpagefault: We're working on the IFDEF hell.
03:40:36Paul_The_NerdThe main problem is that Rockbox wasn't originally expected to spread out like this, so it's having to be reorganized and cleaned up.
03:40:46pagefaultI work for a CCTV company so I am very familiar with how encoders/tuners embedded processors work
03:40:53pagefaultit's just the rockbox code that makes me lost
03:40:58NsNI was thinking about adding support for the mvpd format used by the experimental ipodlinux player, but it really depends how close the audio support is and if anybody would be interested
03:41:46pagefaultso right now I am just trying random stuff to see where it gets me and find out if I can do something useful
03:41:53pagefaultand reading other people's commits to learn
03:41:55Paul_The_NerdNsN: Why does it matter if anyone here would be interested. If you'd like the feature, create a plugin for it, and post your code to the tracker. I'm sure plenty of users would like *any* video with sound.
03:42:41pagefaultlike I can get SPC support working but if you ask me to put it in the menu don't ask me how to do that hehe
03:43:01NsNPaul_The_Nerd: I myself use ipodlinux to play the videos, but in theory it should work a bit smoother on rockbox, since there is less system overhead.
03:43:02Paul_The_NerdWell, SPC should be a codec anyway, right?
03:43:12Paul_The_NerdNsN: In theory, yes.
03:43:14pagefaultI just don't know how to display the file info
03:43:20pagefaultor any of that jazz
03:43:38Paul_The_NerdFile Info, as in?
03:43:59pagefaultwell the SPC's have a tag that say what game they are from, composer, year and etc
03:44:05pagefaultwould be nice to display that
03:44:09pagefaultsort of similar to ID3
03:44:48Paul_The_NerdAnd you've looked at the various other metadata parsers to see how they load up the ID3 structure?

03:45:11Paul_The_NerdI'm not really familiar with that area, so, yeah. :)
03:45:11pagefaultit is open source
03:45:35pagefaulttaking a look at stuff like the module patch is a good place to start to add things
03:47:15pagefaultright now i'm more interested in optimizing the h10 port a bit mores
03:47:29pagefaultso I can use the EQ without it crapping out on me
03:47:54pagefaultbut I guess that would be a big job since I think that would require offloading a lot of work onto the other core
03:49:32Paul_The_NerdActually other things you can do that'll help would be figuring out how to speed up screen drawing, and /or text writing (which i guess it part of it.
03:49:49pagefaultis that an issue
03:50:15pagefaultI guess I should go look at that code then
03:50:35pagefaultwould explain why certain themes make it skip
03:51:15Paul_The_NerdScreen updates are, so I've heard, one of the more cpu eating parts of normal operation

04:04:54Paul_The_NerdUsually we put a very small bootloader in flash, and then Rockbox itself is loaded from disk
04:05:08pagefaultit would just be interested to see a cd player play a SID file
04:05:42Paul_The_NerdYou'd probably need to have Rockbox be present on each CD then. =/
04:05:47pagefaultproblem is that you can brick those easily if you do something wrong
04:05:55Paul_The_NerdIt'd be an interesting challenge. :-P

04:17:34pagefaultI just mean some are extremely sensitive
04:17:44Paul_The_NerdMmm.... Castlevania
04:18:05pagefaulti've had to throw some of the SPC accurcy out the window as well
04:18:15pagefaultopcode counter rather than cycle counter
04:18:22pagefaultmuch faster but far less accurate
04:18:32hcsmy test nsf at the moment is Zelda, it has high pitches on both triangle and square, and I haven't started on figuring out noise just yet
04:19:11pagefaultif I could figure out how to use the second core on my player I could do full accuracy
04:19:14hcsI threw out the cycle counter altogether and it didn't help much, the CPU emulator is only about 5-10%
04:19:16pagefaultand just do the DSP work on one
04:19:21pagefaultand the SPC work on the other
04:19:23pagefaultand be fine
04:19:49hcsthe problem here is that I don't know too much about signal theory
04:20:13Paul_The_Nerdpagefault: Yeah, but what about single-core targets.
04:20:24pagefaultPaul_The_Nerd, hopefully they are fast enough to handle both
04:20:31pagefaultwhat is the slowest one going
04:20:40Paul_The_NerdThe SH1 targets don't count. :-P

04:20:43 Quit pike2k (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
04:21:05Paul_The_NerdBut really, if you had a whole 75mhz ARM7 core without the overhead of the rest of Rockbox, I bet it'd be fast enough too

04:22:24Paul_The_NerdFor ARM it's not.
04:22:27pagefaultoh really?
04:22:35Paul_The_NerdIt's either 4.0 or 4.1

04:24:44pagefaultjust going to hell trying to get this happy on all your targets
04:25:00pagefaultI have a H10 and an ipod mini to test with
04:25:11pagefaultboth pretty much the same I think
04:25:50pagefaulti'll have to steal my friend's x-audio
04:25:56pagefaultiaudio rather
04:26:27bawb2they are quite fun
04:26:32scorchepagefault: we dont estimate dates here ;)
04:26:43pagefaultwell I am just giving a rough idea
04:26:48scorcheeven that!
04:26:54pagefaultit's done when it's done I guess
04:27:13Paul_The_NerdWell I mean, as long as you aren't doing code that's relying on endianness (or wrap in the appropriate macros so you know that it's changed to what you expect it to be) and for any ASM bits you have appropriate C alternates, it should work on any target, right?
04:27:29pagefaultno my code is endian happy
04:27:31pagefaultit doesn't care
04:27:56pagefaultit should compile on any CPU
04:28:40Paul_The_NerdAlso, you really only need to get it working on the CPUs you can test with, so long as it compiles and "theoretically should run" on the other CPUs, people will often pick it up and try to get it working for the other ones.
04:28:54Paul_The_NerdOf course, if you do it, that increases the odds greatly that it'll get done ;)
04:29:01pagefaultwell I will try for ARM first obviously
04:29:06pagefaultsince that is what I have easy access to
04:29:43pagefaultit's just 70mhz barrier that is the problem
04:30:20Paul_The_NerdIs your code telling the CPU to boost properly?
04:30:32Paul_The_NerdOr wait, that's handled by the buffering.
04:30:48pagefaultwell as far as I understood from the code and the forums the H10 does no CPU scaling
04:30:48pagefaultso it is always max
04:31:04pagefaultit's just unlocking that second core
04:31:09pagefaultyou say doom uses it?
04:31:29pagefaultanything does?
04:31:39pagefaultoh nice
04:31:45Paul_The_NerdThe plan is to have the second core be used in a very specific way
04:31:51Paul_The_NerdIt would probably be a bad idea to try to implement using it within the codec.
04:32:03pagefaulthow about can it be used in a desperate I need more power way too?
04:32:18Paul_The_NerdIt would probably be a bad idea to try to implement using it within the codec.
04:32:31pagefaultI get you
04:32:43pagefaultI will do my best, like I said I can have realtime right now
04:32:49Paul_The_NerdIf you did that, odds are your codec would start conflicting with the dual-core architecture once it's done and working
04:32:51pagefaultbut I have to shut off al ot of stuff
04:33:12Paul_The_NerdWell, pretend like you have about 30% more processor power available to you than you do right now
04:33:22pagefaulti'm prepared to rewrite some stuff in assembly if I have to
04:34:19pagefaultit's mainly the S-DSP's gaussian interpolation that really sucks the power out of it
04:34:20Paul_The_Nerdpagefault: If you're interested in Coprocessor work being done so far, it's here:
04:34:33pagefaultwithout it, realtime is not an issue
04:34:37pagefaultbut your SPC's will sound like a tin can
04:34:41pagefaultand some will not sound right at all
04:35:24pagefaultin zsnes we used this wonderful thing called MMX to speed it up
04:35:24Paul_The_NerdDo you make use of IRAM at all?
04:35:26hcsman, I wish I had a tin can that sounds like an SPC
04:35:28pagefaultbut I don't have that :?
04:37:14pagefaultyou mean internal to the CPU
04:37:24pagefaultI am familiar with it, SA-1 on the SNES has it
04:37:35pagefaultI did not know coldfire contained any
04:37:44Paul_The_NerdWe make use of it in some of the codecs, and it's resulted in fairly dramatic speedups
04:37:54Paul_The_NerdThough I don't really know how they make use of it. :)
04:40:27pagefaultso you are planning to at least move things like the EQ to the second core
04:40:43hcshmm, I have two loops which could use a fairly dramatic speedup...
04:41:15pagefaultI mean the more you can offload on the one core
04:41:20pagefaultthe more speed I will have for codecs
04:41:24pagefaultI get what you are coming from now
04:41:47Paul_The_Nerdpagefault: The plan is to have the audio thread be moved to the second core, and possibly DSP effects, with the UI and everything else on the first. Of course, with balancing if that doesn't fit well.
04:42:10pagefaultit would be ideal if possible to have an entire core just for codecs
04:42:15pagefaultbut I doubt that would be realistic
04:42:19Paul_The_NerdWhy not?
04:42:47pagefaultwell... ok nevermind
04:42:53pagefaultlike I said I don't know the code that well
04:42:54 Quit Soap_OutOfTown ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
04:43:06Paul_The_NerdThat isn't *exactly* the plan, but it's something close to that
04:43:16pagefaultsomething that would free up more anyway
04:43:26 Quit toad_ (Read error: 145 (Connection timed out))
04:44:08pagefaultI see
04:44:23pagefaultso I am just to continue doing what I am doing
04:44:30pagefaultand expect 30% or something like that later on
04:44:34pagefaultpretty much
04:44:57pagefaultif thats the case that could work
04:45:29Paul_The_NerdWell as I said, good IRAM usage can also dramatically speed things up, but I'm really not sure how that applies
04:45:48pagefaultwell it depends, I need to look into how much IRAM there is
04:45:59pagefaultif there is 64kb at least I can do dramatic speedups
04:46:06Paul_The_NerdI think that's exactly how much there is.
04:46:18Paul_The_NerdWell, 64 on coldfire, 96 on ARM, if my memory serves (which it may not)
04:46:27Paul_The_NerdAgain, not really my area, and my memory is far from perfect.
04:46:32pagefaultunder 64 but around that
04:46:47pagefaultI am always reading from SPC memory which is slow as hell
04:46:51pagefaultso if I can put that in IRAM
04:47:22pagefaultor if I can fit the guassian table in there
04:47:22pagefaultoh wow
04:47:27pagefaultthat would speed it up like a lot
04:47:47pagefaultif it works the same way I think it works
04:48:19pagefaultit's addressable like any other memory?
04:49:01hcsyay, there we go, made it through the Zelda ending theme without skipping and not sounding too terrible
04:49:03Paul_The_Nerdpagefault: I really don't know. Search the changelog for "IRAM" and you can see how it's used in the diffs.
04:49:17pagefaultwell if I can put the lookup table in there
04:49:22pagefaultI have solved my speed problem
04:50:12Paul_The_NerdGood luck
04:50:23Paul_The_NerdIf I ever have SPC and NSF support, my earphones will probably never leave my ears.
04:50:41pagefaultwell the SPC lib I am using is the closest thing we have to the real thing right now

05:42:24pagefaultwhat did they do to scummvm
05:42:24Paul_The_NerdNo problem
05:42:44Paul_The_Nerdpagefault: They arbitrarily declared that it it wasn't allowed by their terms of Acceptable Use
05:42:51pagefaultuh wtf?
05:42:55Paul_The_NerdBecause it allows the running of software on hardware it was not written/intended for.
05:43:06Paul_The_NerdWhich actually isn't true.
05:43:09pagefaultI wonder why we haven't been shut down then
05:43:13pagefaultzsnes uses paypal too
05:43:17Paul_The_NerdSince ScummVM isn't an emulator in any way, it's a scripting language interpreter.
05:43:20scorcheheh...i think that that is the first time i can recall someone saying "youre welcome" or something like that in this forum besides "np"
05:43:38pagefaultbut we do it through sourceforge
05:43:43pagefaultso maybe thats how we get away with it
05:43:53Paul_The_Nerdpagefault: ScummVM had a small issue recently where someone was illegally selling their software on a DVD full of SCUMM games they were pirating
05:44:06Paul_The_NerdWhen the illegal seller got taken down, his domain was rerouted to point to
05:44:17Paul_The_NerdVery shortly after that, paypal cut off service to ScummVM
05:44:24pagefaultthat happens like daily to us
05:44:33pagefaultzsnes + all roms for $5 on ebay
05:45:02Paul_The_NerdThe suspicion is that PayPal got word of "illegal activities" followed the link to the site, ended up at the scummvm homepage, didn't investigate further after seeing the paypal link, and withdrew service.
05:45:12Paul_The_NerdThey're calling ScummVM a... what was it... "software modulator"
05:45:18pagefaultI bet lucasarts had something to do with it
05:45:31Paul_The_NerdActually, supposedly ScummVM is in the middle of working out a license with Lucasarts

05:45:40Paul_The_NerdSo, they're kinda on favorable terms with 'em at the moment.
05:45:44pagefaultor they don't care
05:45:47pagefaultor they don't speak english
05:45:52pagefaultor because we don't post any e-mails

06:10:04nepomukHey! I just installed rockbox on my 20 gig H10. Love it, love it, love it.
06:10:14pagefaultyeah it makes it useful doesn't it
06:10:31Paul_The_Nerdpagefault: Well, maybe they couldn't get it realtime. At the time the H10 came out, Vorbis wasn't doing so great on embedded platforms
06:10:55pagefaultPaul_The_Nerd, I don't think their firmware guys are the greatest anyway
06:11:00pagefaultthey have short attention span
06:11:04pagefaultthey forget about products
06:11:37nepomuktwo quick questions, though: 1) the brief hiccups in the music I get when playing the games−− are those normal? will they be eventually ironed out? are they related to the similar-sounding hiccups I get when I try to use any of the preinstalled WPSs? I was warned that those would cause the H10 to blarf, so I installed Green BoeselGlass.
06:11:59nepomukwhich leads me to 2): is there any way I can change the font from white to black? I love everything else about the theme.
06:12:04pagefaultnepomuk, it's a common issue
06:12:13Paul_The_Nerdnepomuk: Those are basically caused by the processor not being fast enough to do everything at once.
06:12:14nepomukyeah, I figured.
06:12:22pagefaultit is being worked on
06:12:24nepomukmakes sense. not a problem; just curious.
06:12:29Paul_The_Nerdnepomuk: Once dual core support is in, games + music should be fine
06:12:39Paul_The_Nerdnepomuk: There is a way to change font color, can't remember where it is though
06:12:41pagefaultand keep the peak meter off
06:12:43pagefaultand you will be ok
06:12:50nepomukyeah, I remember reading about that. will do, thanks.
06:14:03pagefaultit's under display settings I believe
06:14:13pagefaultpush power
06:14:38pagefaultor not
06:14:49pagefaultit's somewhere in there I thinkl
06:14:55pagefaultgeneral settings
06:15:00pagefaultand then you can choose your font
06:15:25nepomukafk brb
06:15:49pagefaultholding power will shut it off
06:15:52pagefaultas it always has
06:17:18pagefaultI always wonder
06:17:23pagefaultif I buy a bigger microdrive
06:17:29pagefaultwill the h10 pick it up
06:17:38pagefaultor will I have to do some firmware hackery
06:18:57Paul_The_NerdIt should work just fine, I'd imagine
06:19:30pagefaultjust wondering if I could get a h10 20gb with UMS :P
06:19:30Paul_The_NerdAt least, that's the case on the other iRivers.
06:19:37Paul_The_NerdIt's possible they've engineered something to prevent that.

09:28:59linuxstb_Morning all. I'm moving the usb logo to an external .bmp file, and was wondering if I should keep it as a mono bitmap (i.e. displayed with lcd_mono_bitmap using current fg/bg colours), or change it to being a native bitmap...
09:29:19*Paul_The_Nerd votes native.
09:29:44*scorche seconds
09:29:57Paul_The_NerdFor one thing, you'll never lose it in the backdrop.
09:30:10Paul_The_NerdAssuming you don't insert transparent pink into it
09:30:39linuxstb_A full-screen native bitmap takes up about 150KB on a 5g...
09:30:41LinusNi'd love a nicer usb icon on the more capable targets
09:31:06Coldtoasthey. so does rb run on the 2g Nano?
09:31:21linuxstb_Coldtoast: No - the 2g Nano is a completely different player in terms of hardware.
09:31:27Coldtoastok. good
09:31:42Coldtoastgiveds me another reason to be happy I have a 1g
09:31:51Coldtoastcos I only bough tit 2 weeks befor ethe new ones came out
09:32:13Coldtoastmy 4GB was only bloody $20 cheaper than the new 8GB
09:32:21Coldtoast8GB would have been PERFECT for me
09:33:33Coldtoasttho I much prefer the look of the 1g
09:33:49Paul_The_NerdI think the 2G looks pretty sleek
09:34:00ColdtoastI like the 1g more tho
09:34:03Paul_The_NerdBut then I have this thing for gadgets that actually have real, exposed metal.
09:34:21Coldtoastdid you see the results of the torture test?
09:34:22Quazgaaanyone ever try putting a bigger drive in a x5
09:34:29ColdtoastI think it was engadget who did it
09:34:52Coldtoastthe 1g Nano took 6 drops to damage adn the one that did it was from 9ft
09:35:08Coldtoastthey did the same test with the new 2g. First drop, from 1.5ft, killed teh screen
09:35:21Coldtoasthope they're not ALL that fragile
09:36:04Coldtoastthe guy ran with it and it dropped, hit the end of the earphones and disconnected. hence the 1.5ft
09:36:42Coldtoastalso, I hear file transfers are horribly slow on the new ones

10:07:26theli_uaLinusN, isn't screen output from ipods when connected in USB mode come from apple's firmware?
10:07:44LinusNrockbox runs on many other platforms
10:07:59LinusNthe usb mode in ipod is a workaround
10:08:11theli_uayeah .. i know that on some ( archoses for example ) this does make sense ... but for others ...
10:08:29LinusNipod is the only platform that doesn't show the logo
10:09:05theli_uahm ... i thought that ipods isn't the only target without rockbox's usb mode :/
10:09:09LinusNand it will also show a logo once we work out how to handle the usb mode properly

11:06:34linuxstb_Anyone (amiconn?) have any suggestions about how to deal with the H300 warnings? The main problem is that the bitmap types (fb_data and fb_remote_data) are different for the main screen and remote - so the prototypes for lcd_bitmap and lcd_remote_bitmap are different, which breaks the "screens" system, and also breaks the concept of having an array of logo bitmaps, one per screen...
11:06:58TyroneMaskellhello all
11:07:16TyroneMaskelli wanted to ask what formats does rock box support
11:07:35linuxstb_ (see the table at the bottom)
11:08:08TyroneMaskellcause mine does not support wma
11:08:29linuxstb_No, Rockbox doesn't have WMA support.
11:08:53amiconnLinusN (and others): One of the last changes (within a week or so) broke archos player :-(
11:09:14amiconnRockbox starts, but if I try to resume I get an immediate "stkov scroll"
11:10:04TyroneMaskellguess i must just convert all that wma shit to mp3
11:10:58LinusNamiconn: wonderful
11:11:12linuxstb_TyroneMaskell: Rockbox will probably support WMA in the future, so keep your original WMA files, but yes, your only option at the moment is to convert (or preferably re-rip from the source CDs).
11:11:42 Join tidav [0] (
11:11:46TyroneMaskellwhat is the best format out there these days
11:11:47amiconnThe strange thing is - why "stkov scroll"?

11:12:31LinusNinto the scroll stack
11:12:36TyroneMaskellanother thing with my iriver firmware i could shuffle my whole data base can rockbox do that
11:13:00daurn|afkhey all
11:13:40amiconnlinuxstb_: That's not the only problem in the screen code. The fact that X5 doesn't throw a warning is pure luck (fb_remote_data being 16bit as well for the 4-grey remote lcd because of the interleaved format)
11:13:44TyroneMaskellhow ?
11:14:25TyroneMaskellbest audio format out there ??
11:14:51amiconnBut there's another problem on the X5: gui_syncsplash() uses a dark grey background on the remote where it should use a light grey one
11:15:45amiconnThis is because the gui code uses LCD_LIGHTGRAY for both screens while it should use LCD_REMOTE_LIGHTGRAY for the remote
11:15:59LinusNTyroneMaskell: create a playlist of the entire collection and play it shuffled
11:16:19amiconnTyroneMaskell: There is no 'best
11:16:20TyroneMaskelllol cool

11:41:12jhMikeSI'm planting a little seed for full-duplex audio in the update to the last patch so an interesting new breed of plugin will be possible. I think preglow mostly cares about this but there was something in the FAQ about guitar tunes or something.

11:49:17peturjhMikeS: found something re missing samples?
11:50:58jhMikeSpetur: were you recording to WAV? That glitch was an oddball size that doesn't match any chunk size. It could have been that something wasn't reset properly after use. I haven't had glitches even with 88.2 WavPack since bumping the pcmrec thread prio when it gets flooded.
11:51:18peturWAV, yes
11:51:55jhMikeSAnd now even if it things get flooded it won't become'll just drop data since there's no other choice.
11:52:16peturI consider dropping data 'unstable'
11:53:19jhMikeSIf your shaking the device around and the disk can't spin up you will lose data if writing can't occurr. There's nothing that can be done about that at all.
11:53:19peturor rather, it pisses me off quite a bit if I find out a recording of a great show is screwed
11:53:58peturI've done many recordings in worse conditions... the device was just lying on the stage now, no shaking at all
11:55:30jhMikeSI doubt that should happen again. When boosting the thread prio it flushes very fast and each chunk is reset after use so there's no doubt about its validity.
11:56:33peturgreat. I may find some time to do testing this weekend - is the patch on the tracker or do you think it's good enough for commit?
11:57:02jhMikeSThere's a patch there but I've got an update coming maybe later today I think.

12:58:22amiconnpreglow: I had a closer look at flac's lpc_decode(), and lpc_decode_emac() (guess why ;) )
12:59:26amiconnFrom what I understand it shoudl (1) be possible to handle up to 16bit samples with the sh1 mac, as coeff_prec <= 15
13:00:16amiconn(2) Supporting 24bit flac with coldfire emac does _not_ require 2 streaks of mac.l. One streak is sufficient; all that's needed is fetching tthe accext as well
13:01:23amiconnReasoning: (a) coeff_prec <= 15, together with a sample precision of 24 bits this gives 39 bit products. The emac multiplier yields a 40 bit product
13:02:27amiconn(b) the accumulation can therefore yield a maximum of 43 bits (39 bit products, and av_log2(pred_order) <= 4). The emac accumulator is 48 bits

13:04:44amiconnpreglow: Iirc the maximum supported sample depth of flac is 24 bits
13:04:59preglowamiconn: if so, everything is good
13:05:38preglowamiconn: i'm just wondering, with the current speed of the flac decoder, if i should just make the general flac asm also support 24 bits
13:06:43amiconnHmm, no
13:06:46amiconn"FLAC supports from 4 to 32 bits per sample. Currently the reference encoder and decoders only support up to 24 bits per sample"
13:06:50 Part tucoz ("Leaving")
13:08:49amiconnOtoh, the samplerate field in the frame header only specifies values for 8, 12, 16, 20 and 24 bit samples
13:09:19amiconnhmm, "get from STREAMINFO metadata block"
13:10:47preglowyes, you can also read it straight from the stream
13:10:49preglowsame as with sample rate
13:11:47amiconnAt least, lpc_decode_emac() can be modified to support up to 24 bit samples
13:12:06amiconnIt will be a little bit slower than the 16 bit case
13:12:10preglowand i'll personally fistfight the idiot who uses more than 24 bits in a flac file
13:13:11preglowmyeah, i probably should make new asm routines for it. i'll have to free enough registers that i will probably have to drop unrolling two lpc orders

13:19:26preglowjhMikeS: depends on the code, but compared to the gnu library 32x32->64 mul, it's tons and tons faster

14:22:50Bleistifti should re-solder that critical joints
14:22:55LinusNyes i do
14:23:19LinusNtry to bend the pcb outwards
14:23:31LinusNthen you see if it lets go off the chassis
14:23:53Bleistiftno it doesn't
14:24:05Bleistiftbecause of the 6 joints
14:24:24Kitt0show come patches like scrollmargins and the album art thingi aren't implented into rockbox?
14:24:52LinusNBleistift: have you tried the hard drive in another device, like a usb enclosure?
14:25:04Bleistiftthat fix it on the bars

14:25:32Bleistifti've connected it to my computer via an 2,5->2,5" adapter
14:25:38Bleistiftright now
14:25:43Bleistiftworks fine
14:25:53Bleistiftsmart data looks good
14:25:54Kitt0sso why aren't the coders taking them and making them a stable built-in option
14:25:58LinusNthen my bet is on the batteries or the ata connector
14:26:10Bleistifthitachi drive fitnss reports 0 errors
14:26:15LinusNKitt0s: lack of time and interest, i suppose
14:26:32Kitt0shmm, to bad then
14:26:43LinusNKitt0s: for example, the margins patch is not the preferred way of doing it
14:27:05Bleistifthm, thanks!
14:27:05LinusNbut the preferred way requires a lot of work
14:27:32LinusNKitt0s: so it's more or less a catch 22
14:28:28LinusNi once wanted to commit the margins patch, because it's better than nothing
14:28:56linuxstb_I would quite like to see the album art patch committed, and started looking at it the other week. I need to find time to go back to it...
14:29:19LinusNthere we go again...time... ;-)
14:29:33LinusNspare time, where art thou?
14:29:54Kitt0swhen is 3.0 due? 2010?
14:30:24PaulJamin may
14:30:25LinusNKitt0s: that's as good as any guess
14:31:12aliaskApart from the playback glitches, what else needs going for 3.0?
14:31:24Kitt0srealy? may? thats like.. 7-8 months.. nice :]
14:31:38peturmay 2006 ;)
14:32:19Kitt0sthat sounds better :]
14:34:14linuxstb_So is 3.1 in November 2006 still on schedule?
14:34:48preglowwhy, of course!
14:34:50Bg3rlinuxstb_: do you really think it is ?:D
14:35:45Bg3ryeah... 3.0 in 15 of Oct, 3.1 in the end of Nov
14:37:40Bleistiftbut linus how would you interpret that:
14:38:07Bleistiftits the sound of my ajr booting into archos firmware
14:39:00Bleistiftwhich of course isn't finished

14:47:56aliaskKitt0s: Having photos in the Tag DB might be besides the purpose of the database - Image files don't have much useful metadata for sorting.
14:48:27Kitt0snot sorting, just being there...
14:48:35Kitt0sun sorted
14:48:43aliaskAs for Extras and Settings, they're available in the main menu, so they don't really need to be there. Remember, we're not trying to emulate the iPod firmware.
14:49:29PaulJamwhat would be nice for the tagcache db would be the ability to specify a link to a hd folder
14:49:38Kitt0si know we are not, but it could be so much easy then all those extra buttons for the settings
14:50:01aliaskPaulJam: I agree.

15:00:05linuxstb_See the last comment - the patch doesn't apply to the current source any more - so it needs someone to update it.
15:00:26Kitt0si know

15:03:38lowlightHere was my take on "scroll margins" (left margin anyway):

15:27:05webguest20So one shouldn't expect a working WMA playback anytime soon, right? Good that the OF can do it, I have some WMA files (not many though)

16:37:23dan_aIt sounds to me like maybe Apple have started shipping disks that are formatted slightly differently
16:37:34 Join bbroke [0] (
16:38:22godzirradan_a: They did.
16:38:47godzirraFrom what I understand (and this very well may be wrong) they're formatted with 512bytes / sector, but do something weird to makei t look like 2048 bytes per sector?
16:38:57godzirraI didnt really understand the whole virtual sector size comments
16:42:12linuxstb_My understanding is this: the USB disk mode which is implemented in software (in the Apple firmware), presents the disk to the host computer as having 2048 byte sectors. But in reality (i.e. to Rockbox running on the ipod), the disk only has 512 byte sectors. So the partition table and (I assume) the FAT filesystem itself stores sector pointers in terms of 2048-byte sectors, but Rockbox is interpreting them to mean 512-byte sectors...
16:43:11dan_aWhy in $^@%'s name would they do that?
16:43:20godzirrato keep people from overwriting their firmware? :)

18:51:01linuxstb_amiconn: Regarding 1) It just seemed more consistent to change them all - especially as the mono targets do "#define lcd_mono_bitmap lcd_bitmap".

18:51:48linuxstb_petur: m4a is most commonly aac, but it's just a generic container - Apple also use it for Apple Lossless. You can even store MP3 streams in .m4a (in theory).

19:45:30preglowpeople have spent hundreds of hours trying to simulate filters faaar simpler than the one in this thing
19:45:34Dma-Scoh a sidstation, slick stuff :)
19:45:59preglow'tis indeed

19:46:48Dma-Scbut yeah, when i want to hear proper sid, i rely in recording rather than emulation

20:02:47kierskoewell i booted up rockbox on a nano and all was going well, but now when i turn it on all it brings up is a "restore with ipod updater" screen

20:04:36linuxstbI think one or two people have reported that problem as well in the past - but I don't know if anyone found the cause.
20:05:31linuxstbDo you still have the "rockboot.bin" file you created during the initial installation?
20:06:18linuxstbTry writing that to your ipod again. You'll need to force your ipod into disk mode.
20:08:31kierskoeif i format the ipod will rockbox be able to install the bootloader again?
20:09:23linuxstbYes, but that's a last resort. I would just try restoring the rockboot.bin first.
20:10:29kierskoehow do i force the ipod into disk mode?
