00:12:18webguest37with ajr, unit on, charger plugged in and charging batteries, why won't it allow turning off, it says "unit charging" when off is selected
00:13:54peturmaybe because the hardware would boot it again immediately because of the external power? At least that's why it's like that on iriver, don't know about archos
00:14:58webguest37strange that, a bit counter intuitive,
00:15:36peturI'm just guessing
00:15:53*petur looks at amiconn/Bagder/...
00:15:54webguest37uhuh, your guess is better than mine
00:18:42webguest37how good is the built in charger in the Recorder, will i need to cycle the batteries every now and then in an external charger ?
00:19:08peturI have no idea - don't have an archos

00:39:43pillis audio supposed to skip sometimes on ipod mini 1G?
00:39:52pilli'm talking APS mp3
00:42:12preglowdo you use any eq?
00:43:10preglowipods are a bit pressed for cpu anyway, so it's not inconceivable that mp3s might skip at high bitrates
00:43:17preglowbut it hasn't happened to me for a long time

00:48:07Mikachuwhat problem are we fixing?
00:48:37 Quit pagefault (Read error: 54 (Connection reset by peer))
00:49:13lostlogicwell it relates to 5906 −− getting partial wrong-track output after resuming a song and then seeking backwards within it... but it may or may not fix that issue
00:49:25Mikachuah, that happens to me
00:49:26lostlogicit should also more fully utilize the compressed audio buffer">
00:50:08lostlogicpondlife said he got it to lostlogicx
00:50:18lostlogicchange it to
00:50:19Mikachuah, missing x
00:50:28Mikachuthat's a nice macro
00:50:34lostlogicand pondlife said that he was able to get it to go into a "filling forever state"
00:50:38lostlogicI haven't found that state yet

00:51:20Mikachuwhat would be characteristic of this state?
00:51:43Mikachusuccess, patch applies
00:53:49lostlogichmm, the disk never goes to rest as the audio is playing and or audio starts to get effed up as the buffer overwrites itself
00:53:56Mikachubleh, wtf isn't it boosting when buffer is low?
00:54:03Mikachuprobably not related to the patch
00:54:17lostlogicyeah, I didn't touch boost behavior today
00:55:26Mikachusigh, i really don't like this prio scheduler
00:56:38lostlogicmy jury is still out on it
00:57:12Mikachui didn't get skipping before, the only gain for me is the ui is useless
00:57:22 Quit charkins ("Leaving")
00:58:14Mikachuin the meantime i boosted manually
00:59:49Mikachuno luck, it seemed to crash when i tried to skip
01:00:15Mikachubut that was without your patch
01:00:21Mikachui think something else is amiss
01:02:13lostlogicuh oh
01:02:32lostlogicwell, I might have found the bug in my patch that pondlife was seeing, so I'll be posting an updated version soon
01:02:47Mikachui knew i shouldn't have cvs updated without backing up my tree first
01:03:02Mikachuafter a whole month or so
01:06:13jhMikeS petur likes to look at people
01:07:35 Quit Id2ndR ("Parti")
01:08:33Mikachuit seems i found the correct lines to comment out to disable the scheduler...
01:08:43Mikachu(just undefining it makes rockbox crash on startup)
01:09:24Mikachups it is insane to make an os prioritize decoding over ui
01:09:57JdGordonnot for rb
01:10:10lostlogicdepends... this is a audio jukebox firmware...
01:10:20Mikachusure, i don't need to be able to actually use the interface while listening to music
01:10:25lostlogicdamn. it like doesn't return right or something.
01:10:53KalthareI've been wondering why the UI is sluggish even when nothing's playing..
01:11:32lostlogicKalthare: that's just because ipod is still slow
01:11:35lostlogicand we don't boost for UI
01:11:39Mikachucommenting out that section magically makes skipping work better too
01:12:37*Mikachu is less grumpy again
01:13:34Mikachuof course, it's easy for me to complain, the nano has the fastest ui :)
01:14:34lostlogicMikachu: you don't want to use my patch... seeking that should cause a rebuffer seems to cause a stoppage of playing instead.
01:14:48Mikachui sort of noticed that yeah
01:14:57Mikachupause and play seemed to restart it sometimes
01:15:03*lostlogic smacks it

01:15:26Mikachui love how grep . without -r happily returns without actually grepping anything
01:15:33lostlogichehe :)
01:15:41*RedKennedy is wishing that BBE was an open source library.
01:15:54Mikachuokay, HAVE_SCHEDULER_BOOSTCTRL looks like a prime suspect
01:15:56RedKennedythough i read on the iaudiophile forums that rockbox can make everything sound just as sexy
01:15:59RedKennedyany tips?
01:16:02lostlogicMikachu: for?
01:16:14Mikachufor my not boosting
01:16:22Mikachui probably accidentally disabled it when merging new changes
01:16:23lostlogicMikachu: that's actually a change I kinda like... the boosting is still done manually
01:16:30lostlogicah yeah
01:16:50lostlogicthe only problem with the impl is that he made it a config.h variable but disabling it breaks the feature instead of switching back to normal
01:17:13Mikachumaybe that explains my crashes though..., we'll see
01:17:31preglowRedKennedy: rockbox doesn't do anything fancy to the sound
01:17:47preglowRedKennedy: unless you count basic stereo stuff, eq and crossfeed
01:18:12Mikachuah yes, enabling that crashes on startup
01:18:21RedKennedypreglow: well, i gathered that, but is there any way to manipulate said eq effects to get a bbe-ish sound?
01:18:45Mikachuthat means i can disable prio sched completely...
01:19:57preglowRedKennedy: what does bbe do, then?
01:20:07preglowi've never bumped into it
01:20:39Mikachubleh, they removed the boost code from the playback code completely
01:20:55 Join NickDe [0] (
01:20:55Mikachuway to add an ifdef :)
01:21:08Mikachunot much point if you remove the #else case
01:22:13 Quit lodesi ("leaving")
01:23:09preglowhow does the scheduler unboosting work?
01:23:13preglowthat is, when does it unboost?
01:23:25RedKennedypreglow: it sort of spreads the sound out, and makes everything more full, highlighting various things...doesn't do much bass-wise...but it can make recordings from the 60's sound like modern day studio sessions
01:23:26Mikachuthe cpu?
01:23:33Mikachuoops, i read "what"
01:23:39lostlogicpreglow: it unboosts when the cpu gets 'slept'
01:23:51RedKennedypreglow: there's also mach3bass, which is part of bbe, and enhances the low end without causing any distortion
01:24:32lostlogicwhich means that it doesn't immediately unboost all the time when the buffer gets full, because just because the codec thread sleeps for 1s/hz doesn't mean that all threads are asleep for that length
01:24:46preglowRedKennedy: crossfeed does something like that, but i bet it's not as fancy
01:24:55jhMikeSIsn't mach3bass what iAudio uses...been so long since OF that I can't recall but it sounds familiar.
01:25:13Mikachuhooray, the changes revert without conflicts = fixed

01:25:20Mikachunow i am never going to cvs update again :P
01:25:56RedKennedyjhMikeS: yes. i'm a proud iAudio user. :^)
01:26:04Mikachui could also try to find out why it reboots to the sad ipod when i enable boostctrl... but not today
01:26:07preglowlostlogic: sounds like it just ate whatever battery savings we got from the scheduler in the first place, then
01:27:02Mikachujust make the decoded audio buffer larger = fixed skips
01:27:03 Quit pagefault (Read error: 54 (Connection reset by peer))
01:28:21lostlogicpreglow: wouldn't surprise me... I kinda think that what we need to do instead is to have per-thread boost states in a bitmap so that when a thread boosts, it sets the bit and when that same thread sleeps it unsets the bit and if the bitmap is now zero, the cpu unboosts (if we're going to do offer 'automatic' unboosting, which seems a good idea)

01:32:19preglowlostlogic: definitely sounds more foolproof
01:33:18lostlogicI wonder how big of a task it would be to replace all boosting in the system with that style.
01:33:23ByronI don't know, I just decided to take the card out when I couldn't get it to turn on and it came up when I took the card out, then that trick stopped working so I blew into the slot and that worked
01:33:42*lostlogic hates two ways to do things
01:34:07Mikachulostlogic: #define boost()
01:34:23Byroncould there be a bad solder connection that isen't being made that is ingnited when I blow into the slot

08:16:40mihalisscanned the disk w/ what?
08:16:57Rob2222you use windows?
08:17:21Rob2222chkdsk h: /f

08:17:56linii guess Archos recorder cannot have a rombox build now?
08:18:04amiconnyes :(
08:18:16pondlifeFor now :(
08:18:42mihalisLOTS of invalid time stamps, and "entries that will be truncated"...
08:19:30Rob2222mihalis: You have a backup of the files?
08:20:04amiconnlini: You could use a build from 2006-10-15 or earlier, which has rombox, but then you won't have the pitch screen (which was missing for recorder v1 and v2 for a few weeks)
08:21:16liniyes i saw the CVS log
08:21:27mihalisi always backup my stuff
08:21:43linii am using an older build right now (10-09 i think) since it leaves more free RAM
08:21:47Rob2222mihalis: OK, fine :)
08:21:52mihalisits just that it sucks having to copy everything over again... it was well over 30 gigs

08:23:12mihalisyah... i guess i learned about the bugs the hard way, but then again... i think it might be because its an apple product, which, of course, sucks.
08:23:37mihalishell, in the 80s even commodore was better than apple

08:23:47Rob2222well, normally there doesnt occure bug that cause data loss
08:23:59mihalisyah thats why i think its the drive
08:24:27Rob2222what was your last steps with the unit before the bug occured?
08:24:39Teknomancerrockbox on my iRiver has been quite good though, though i have a really old version
08:24:40mihalisand im certainly not going to rush out and exchange it for another ipod... ill be getting a different product entirely... thank goodnes i got the warranty protection
08:24:54mihalisis iriver better than ipod?
08:25:06Rob2222jejeje :) (at least imho)
08:25:13Rob2222but ipods are smaller
08:25:28mihalisive heard alot about it... small isnt my concern... quality built is more important
08:25:42mitt3ranyone know much about the sandisk series?
08:25:52Teknomancermihalis for all your iRiver queries :) since there are a lot of different models
08:25:55mihalisi dont want something that will crash and have regular data loss
08:26:12Rob2222I love the iRiver H300. I pimped my HD and my battery yet and everything is running fine
08:26:15Teknomanceri've been having iRiver H340 for a few months and so far no problems
08:26:44Rob2222mihalis: Well, just give your unit a 2nd chance
08:26:49Teknomancerand what i LOVE about my H300 the most is that it's just a simple FAT32 that works out-of-the-box for almost all OSs including BeOS, Linux, Windows
08:26:59Teknomancerno special software needed to transfer stuff etc
08:27:13Rob2222hehe yes, its recognized as USB mass storage

08:28:50mitt3ranyone know if rockbox is planning something for the sandisk series?
08:29:15Rob2222Well, once I damaged my file structure while trying to move files with the rockbox rename function. Copy and past wasnt implemented that time.
08:29:33Rob2222but that was the only data-loss related problem i had
08:30:05mihalisok chkdsk managed to delete all the gibberish files, but the old folders didnt come back... in addition, the space they occupied still seems to be occupied, and no recycle bin was made
08:30:53Rob2222if nothing helps, reformat it
08:31:06mihalisive had that problem with other drives in the past... usually right before they bit the dust... and this one is only about a month old
08:31:43Rob2222maybe you dl "hdtune" and scan the disc
08:31:57Rob2222a surface scan
08:32:11Rob2222or chkdsk h: /f/r
08:32:21Rob2222but this takes a while
08:32:35Rob2222and maybe it reports a disc problem then
08:32:52mihalisi think im just going to return it...
08:33:04mihalisif i have to do all this, i might as well do it with a new device.
08:33:12mihalisthanks, though

08:44:40pondlifeOK, me learny

08:44:45amiconnWe have 3 frequencies, idle, normal and boosted
08:45:07amiconncpu_boost() usually switches between normal and boosted
08:45:47LinusNpondlife: maybe you can update that page with the new API
08:45:52amiconnThe idle frequency is selected (with a separate function) only if there's really very little to do, e.g. during radio or USB mode
08:46:15pondlifeLinusN: The API hasn't changed, has it?
08:46:26amiconnBut for some tests its very convenient to be able to select idle freqency manually
08:46:43Teknomancerwhat is boost? i'm hearing it all the time ..
08:46:43LinusNpondlife: i see lots of calls to a function called cpu_boost_id()
08:46:49Teknomancersome c++ library for ?
08:47:01pondlifeThat will be going shortly.
08:47:06amiconnBtw, now USB in rockbox never works for me in rockbox. Have to use cowon bootloader USB everytime
08:47:10LinusNTeknomancer: it's when we change the CPU frequency to the maximum
08:47:20pondlifeI needed the IDs while playback.c had 3 different boost causes. They have now gone
08:47:31pondlifeSo __FILE__ will do that automatically instead
08:47:41pondlifeAssuming GCC always supports that.
08:47:46Bagderit does
08:47:47amiconnOn X5, that is
08:47:52Bagderpondlife: even __FUNCTION__
08:48:06LinusNpondlife: then maybe we could remove the cpu_boost_id() function?
08:48:06pondlifeThanks, I didn't know about that one
08:48:16LinusNamiconn: interesting
08:48:18pondlifeIt will be #defined out
08:48:35amiconnUSB logo appears, but I don't get a connection
08:48:35pondlifeSo I'll keep my tracking and it'll be automatic
08:48:40TeknomancerLinusN ah okay
08:48:50LinusNamiconn: so it's probably a missing ack somewhere
08:49:07pondlifeSo what did I change in the boost screen? Did I remove a cpu_idle_mode call? If so that was unintentional.
08:49:24pondlifeNM, I'll check
08:49:30LinusNpondlife: well, you removed an explicit set_cpu_frequency() call
08:49:51pondlifeI would think it better if those aren't used by the UI, if possible.
08:49:58pondlifeThe API should just be as per the wiki

08:51:27pondlifeUSB works 100% for me on H300 (apart from bootloader which is 0%)
08:52:28amiconn...even with menu & folder voicing enabled (so it's not what I suspected first)
08:53:14pondlifeOK, so why should a call to set_cpu_frequency(CPUFREQ_DEFAULT) allow idle, but boosting down to level 0 not? Or am I still misunderstanding (it's early here)
08:53:33amiconnThe latter...
08:53:47amiconnBoosting down to 0 goes to CPUFRE_NORMAL

08:54:06pondlifeDEFAULT = NORMAL or IDLE?

08:54:30pondlifeRight. Why not CPUFREQ_IDLE then?
08:54:45pondlifeI think I'd have read that correctly.
08:55:09amiconnIt's the default frequency of the CPU when the PLL isn't enabled (yet)

11:26:52Paul_the_NerdWell, with Replaygain, Crossfeed and 5 bands of equalizer while viewing the audio thread on a 128kbps MP3 it seems to just *barely* break even. 100% boost, but the PCM buffer seems to be averaging out at not moving up or down.

11:31:40Paul_the_NerdBut that's unrelated to the patch.

12:10:49tucozAnyone with a ipod around?
12:11:18tucozIs this description correct?
12:11:35tucozof the virtual keyboard. That there is a picker area and a line edit mode
12:12:58Paul_the_Nerdtucoz: Scrolling moves the cursor Up/Down, Prev/Next moves it left/right. Moving it off the bottom or top moves it into the line edit area.
12:13:22Paul_the_NerdPrev/Next cannot get you into the line edit area, only scrolling can.
12:13:27tucozI am changing that table to use the Action codes.
12:13:59Paul_the_NerdOther than that, I believe the description is correct.
12:14:08tucozdo we need two tables for that? Or is it fine to fit it in one table?
12:14:28Paul_the_NerdI think it's okay
12:14:36tucozWith one table?
12:15:13tucozI'll make it one table
12:15:29Paul_the_NerdWell, all you need to do is say "Scroll Fwd/Back: Moves the cursor up/down" "Prev/Next: Moves the cursor left/right" "Select: While in keyboard, inserts highlighted letter. While line is selected, deletes previous letter."
12:15:44tucozyes. thanks for the help :)
12:16:06Paul_the_NerdThough that does make the assumption they'll see that it's logical to move "down" or "up" into the line-select field, but that can be noted.
12:16:18Paul_the_NerdAlso, that screenshot isn't from a nano, if that matters.
12:16:38Paul_the_NerdOh wait, it is

12:50:29TeknomancerD_C yeah i'm just angry at my luck
12:50:38D_Cwhats the chance of getting a pdf viewer in rockbox
12:50:58Paul_the_NerdD_C: About the same as the odds of one of the people who actually *wants* one standing up and coding it.
12:51:02D_Cor are most of them not powerful enough
12:51:33Soap_OutOfTownD_C - PDF supposedly looks horrible on the new sony ebook with 10x the screen realestate
12:51:37Paul_the_NerdI imagine if it ever were done, it'd take a bit to render the page, yes.
12:51:49Soap_OutOfTownPDF looks bad on my 320x320 palm, pilot.
12:52:10Soap_OutOfTownwhat you want is a simple HTML ebook reader, imho.

13:36:19Teknomanceroh man :( my default firmware is now become SUPER bright :(
13:36:26tucozI think boot loader is the correct word
13:36:42amiconnThe charging screen used to allow booting into the standard rockbox ui with ON

13:36:58Teknomancerpetur yeah :(
13:36:58Bagdera boot loader sounds like something that fills your shoes

13:38:33Paul_the_Nerdtucoz: You can get away with calling it bootloader though because any new thing you create can be called whatever you want. We could just as easily call it the glovedumper if we really wanted to, I should think.
13:38:38MbSthe default fw's settings gets corrupted every now and again by rb
13:38:40Teknomancerusing "Load Default" worked!!
13:38:46Teknomancerpetur thanks so much man :)
13:38:47anrdewmelbugger wrong window :)
13:38:51peturTeknomancer: you can save your iriver settings to file and reload in case it happens again
13:38:52preglowit is boot loader, afaik
13:38:58MbSthe values go out of the fw's usual range
13:39:00amiconnHmm, I was slightly wrong. Now it reacts on ACTION_STD_OK (which is a short press on Play)
13:39:12amiconnJdGordon: Yes, screens.c charging_screen()
13:39:13Teknomancerpetur ? u mean rockbox settings?
13:39:22preglowyou should seldomly concatenate words in english, contrary to what we (or those who know the rules anyway) do in scandinavia
13:39:28MbSTek: iRiver too
13:39:30JdGordonbutton = get_action(CONTEXT_STD,HZ/3);

13:39:31JdGordon rc = 2;
13:39:34tucozPaul_the_Nerd, hmm. I understand what you mean. But, to keep it simple and consistent, I want to use the same spelling everywhere and then maybe the english word is the best to use.
13:39:39TeknomancerMbS how can i save it to a file in iRiver?
13:39:53peturTeknomancer: iriver saves the settings in eeprom. in rockbox you can read/write this eeprom
13:39:58 Join Rondom [0] (
13:40:08tucozpreglow, I think I'll go for boot loader. But, what do you say about CVS vs. cvs?
13:40:13amiconnJdGordon: Yes, but ACTION_STD_OK is the wrong button
13:40:18Teknomancerpetur oh, understood, so where in Rockbox do i do that?
13:40:27JdGordonamiconn: so change the button?
13:40:31preglowtucoz: can't see any reason not to use CVS
13:40:39preglowtucoz: it isn't a word, after all
13:40:39tucozthanks. I'll do that
13:40:51MbSTek: Dump rom contents in Info>debug
13:41:17peturTeknomancer: menu -> info -> debug -> dump rom (or something like that) , it creates two files, you can delete the biggest one.
13:41:22peturdamn lag
13:41:31MbSTek: and Write back EEPROM to reload them
13:41:32tucozbut in general. What should I use. Spin-up/spin up, re-program/re program?
13:41:37Teknomancerpetur okay thanks, next time i boot RB i will do that,
13:41:42TeknomancerMbS oh .. that's a risk
13:41:50Teknomanceri don't like to meddle with the ROM :(
13:41:54JdGordonamiconn: which action do you wwant to use there? or do you want to put it back to regular button checking because of the few targets which use it?
13:41:54tucozhmm. there is a word called reprogramme
13:41:59peturEEPROM, not rom
13:42:11Teknomancerpetur yes i know
13:42:23Teknomancerso each time i must rewrite the eeprom?
13:42:24peturit just writes to the chip that stores the settings - no harm
13:42:32amiconnJdGordon: That's probably the main question. I think inventing an extra context just for the charging screen would be overkill
13:42:37MbSTek: no, just if there's a big problem
13:42:42peturno, just an option when they get bad again
13:42:48*petur shi=uts up
13:42:54TeknomancerMbS ok but "Load Default" is working
13:42:55peturshuts even
13:43:00Teknomancerso i think using that would be enough
13:43:07amiconnI didn't check yet whether we have a context with a suitable action assigned to ON
13:43:21Teknomancerbut if things get reaaally bad i'll can reinstall the firmware
13:43:37peturTeknomancer: that won't help
13:43:56preglowtucoz: if we go with american english, it's reprogram
13:44:00Teknomancerpetur i meant reinstall the firmware, not rockbox
13:44:04tucozwe go with british
13:44:09Teknomancerfirmware installation rewrites EEPROM
13:44:15peturTeknomancer: indeed. that won't help
13:44:24Teknomancerpetur why not?
13:44:30preglowtucoz: no, it's reprogram anyway, afaik
13:44:38peturTeknomancer: no it doesn't write to eeprom, it writes to flash
13:44:39Teknomancerpetur that also does load defautls as well
13:44:43JdGordonamiconn: the ipod uses that screen also... so maybe it does need a new context
13:44:43tucozok. thanks. inoperational ?
13:44:51MbSTek: I have a clean and patched fw, a clean cvs build and a proper ROM dump saved in a folder for emergencies. Just move whatever you need to the root and you're set again
13:44:55Teknomancerpetur ah but i think it rewrites the settings also
13:45:20peturTeknomancer: if things really go wrong, just use the write eeprom feature of rockbox
13:45:22TeknomancerMbS k,
13:45:30Teknomancerpetur ok
13:45:43Teknomancerthx MbS petur ..
13:45:49Teknomancerletting it charge now, be back later
13:45:59peturand if you don't have a copy, somebody can always give you their dump
13:46:02amiconnJdGordon: iPod uses the charging screen? That's odd...
13:46:28MbSjust think of it as another wonderful safety feature. If the stock gets corrupted beyond use the eeprom can save it
13:46:33amiconnThe charging screen is meant for targets which can't be shut down completely _when rockbox is flashed_
13:46:58peturMbS: it's just that rockbox is the source of the corruption :(
13:47:08JdGordoni dunno... the CONFIG_KEYPAD is cchecked for ipod in that diff... so it looks like its used...
13:47:08amiconnSo it should only really be included on archos player and recorders atm

13:49:19peturrockbox doesn't have a charge screen/mode
13:50:00MbSso it would go to the stock charging. which is fine with me.
13:50:02JdGordonspeaking of which.. is there any work on changing the h3000 bootloader to not use the OF for ac charging? or do we still want that as a safty thing?
13:50:56MbSi'd have thought that charging with the player on would be worse for the batt
13:50:59JdGordonhehe h3000!
13:51:00peturthe new bootloader will no longer boot into original firmware... just waiting on Linus...
13:51:32peturI meant on AC insertion of course
13:51:35amiconnImho we should fix the charging control on h300 first
13:53:55MbSWhat's wrong with it? Didn't iRiver just use the hardware too?
13:54:48amiconnThe charging circuit can be programmed to either low or high current
13:55:05JdGordonwhat is it currently?
13:55:14amiconnRockbox doesn't handle that yet, so we're always charging with low current

14:13:56peturyou could switch cpu to idle speed and show a fancy picture, but that won't help much
14:14:07Rob2222petur: yes, but iriver had somthing like standby, when you press OFF while charging. at least this mode consumed less power then "on withou play"

14:21:36*petur will join JdGordon in about 6 hours :D
14:22:39amiconnRob2222: As long as we don't put rockbox in flash on H300, there is no point in having a charging screen
14:22:54amiconnThe reason is that we need to load from disk anyway
14:23:26amiconnAll we could do is to put some kind of charging screen in the bootloader, but I don't think that'd be a good idea
14:24:32LinusNi believe we should have a charging screen in the bootloader
14:24:34peturthe only advantage would be that you can attach/detatch AC and not have to press OFF afterwards to stop the player
14:25:07LinusNwe need to handle the charger anyway, to implement car adapter mode properly
14:25:08peturdetach even
14:27:42amiconnLinusN: Car adapter mode doesn't need special handling as long as we don't flash
14:27:59peturjust boot rockbox on AC
14:28:07amiconnAll it needs is to start / stop playback when charger is present/absent
14:28:09peturhint hint hint :)
14:28:09LinusNit does, since inserting the charger starts the OF
14:28:41amiconnYes, but that only needs adjustment in the bootloader
14:28:54amiconn...independently of car adapter mode
14:29:01*petur still wonders why double-clicking on starts OF as well
14:29:17LinusNyes, and then we need to handle charging as well, since the battery may be too low to boot rockbox

15:56:38pondlifeHave you tried CVS with lostlogic's latest, by the way? He may have fixed whitenoise too.
15:57:48PaulJami have tried with the patch on the tracker before he comitted, and got whitenoise.
15:58:13pondlifeOK, I think it;s the same as the CVS commit.

15:58:30pondlifeI assume so...!
15:59:16PaulJamyes, but i have to do the tests on the target, because audio in the sdl sim was broken before 1. august

21:40:51dan_aIsn't that something like search for "tasks I'm watching"?
21:41:51dan_a"Tasks I watch" from the dropdown list in the top left of the tracker index page.
21:43:13Genre9mp3^ of course you have to login first for that option to show up

21:49:19BossierI have a quick question, would the boosting changes in the 20061016 build address the frequency scaling issue with 4g ipods?

21:51:55bluebrotherdan_a, something like this −− but I haven't found anything in FS.

21:53:13lostlogicBossier: which issue was that?
21:53:54Genre9mp3bluebrother: have you login to flyspray and still you can't find that option?
21:55:12Genre9mp3Weird...I get these options: All tasks/Tasks assigned to me/Tasks reported by me/Tasks I watch
21:55:23Bossieron my ipod mini1g it would freeze up during playback at at times, there is a patch that corrects this but my ipod has playback issues with that patch applied on the 1016 build. I looked at the changes and saw alot about cpu boosting so I thought maybe my problem was that I applied a patch for a problem that build just addressed.

21:59:07Bossierbtw, you guys are great! I tried rockbox after finally giving up on seeing mpd work on ipodlinux. everything else on linux worked, but if mpd doesn't work.....well, that's why I bought an ipod to begin with
22:00:26bluebrotherGenre9mp3, found it. I didn't look _there_

22:09:53anrdewmelHi, I am wondering what you guys are using to edit .c files? When I open them up in notepad the lack of linebreaks makes it very difficult to navigate
22:10:12PaulJamuse notepad2
22:10:58Bossierif you're a student you can get visual studio and all sorts of neat things for this.
22:10:59PaulJamor any other editor that can handle unix lineendings
22:11:10 Quit bawb2 (Remote closed the connection)
22:11:23lostlogic... vi... is there another editor that I should be aware of?
22:11:25lostlogic(vim to be precise)
22:11:51bluewormemacs ;)
22:12:34Bossieris there a good place to get equalizer preset files?

22:15:52anrdewmelrighto, I have installed Notepad2, and it looks like I can read it. :) Now for my first changes.
22:17:02bluebrotheranrdewmel, I prefer gvim. But it might be a bit unintuitive. Rockbox files use unix line endings and mostly everything except notpad can read that.
22:17:29*bluebrother uses gvim even on windows
22:17:42pixelmabluebrother: regarding keytables in the manual... shouldn't the key for "show menu" (if there's a plugin specific menu) be listed, too? (I'm looking at solitaire.tex right now)

22:39:02stripwaxsaw a couple of unusual problems with a cvs build from today - permanent cpu boosting on ipod 5g, and keypresses in the "audio thread' debug info page doing weird things (skipping tracks etc but unable to exit the info page). Are those known problems?

22:47:38amiconndan_a: The flash in the Sansa uses the SD protocol?
22:47:56dan_aamiconn: According to MrH, yes
22:48:22amiconnMaybe you can reuse some bits of the Ondio MMC driver
22:48:37amiconnMMC and SD are similar
22:48:43Bagder"the mystery SanDisk chip located near the NAND chips is actually a custom SD <-> NAND bridge/device controller"
22:48:50dan_aI'm planning to use what I can
22:49:02 Quit Arathis (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
22:49:18amiconnThe MMC in the Ondio uses the SPI interface though, but I think you can reuse some command stuff
22:49:52 Quit EspeonEefi ("Leaving")
22:50:02amiconnThe bad thing about SD is that it is rather closed. MMC is more open, although the full official specs cost money
22:50:30dan_aFortunately there is some open documentation on SD.
22:50:40Bagderthere's also SD/MMC support in linux
22:50:53dan_aI've never done anything remotely like this before, though.
22:50:57BagderI don't know if it helps though

23:34:56Arathisastronut: it works fine. recording and fm radio isn't supported yet and you might get problems when using a WPS with peakmeter or playing a game while playing music because the second cpu isn't in use yet (as far as I know)
23:35:19PaulJamwhile playing screen

23:37:45Arathisdualbot isn't supported yet if not commited today
23:38:02astronutoh, ok, just on other players?
23:38:11astronutyou on 20 or 5/6?
23:38:27***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
23:38:49Arathisyou can't brake your player at all though you just put the .rockbox folder, the rockbox.h10 file and the modified bootloader (.mi4) on it
23:38:59ArathisI'm on 20g
23:39:27Arathisbut as long as you don' use a pure model you won't get any problems
23:39:30astronutand if rockbox fails, the next time i turn it on, it won't load, and i can't revert it
23:39:44astronutand i'm also on 20gb
23:40:18astronuttrying to decide how much i want recorder/radio

23:47:17anrdewmelBHSPitLappy, there is a metronome, I want to beef it up a bit. I would like to add a beats per bar chime, and the ability to swing the beat, if I have the skill
23:49:26Arathisastronut: "pure" means without radio. a special version of the 5/6gb. radio *could* be implemented quite fast if someone would do it, 'cause the code is mostly written for the H3x0 and just needs to be modified
