#rockbox log for 2006-10-24

00:00:47amiconnDon't forget that the new dma needs to be set up rather quick

00:01:27vgdoes anyone know why browsing through the filebrowser is slow?
00:01:37jhMikeSWithout some effective mutex it won't nescessarily be peaking the correct position
00:02:30vgseems like the buffer needs to be larger maybe
00:02:35jhMikeSI'm trying to keep it all minimal. Doesn't really do any more than the playback does.
00:02:48vgit browses faster when the file names are shorter
00:03:02vgis there anyway i can increase the buffer size?
00:03:17amiconnThat has nothing to do with the buffer size
00:03:29amiconnThe whole directory is buffered at once
00:03:37vgso the solution is what?
00:03:44vgsmaller directories?
00:03:51vgeg, less files in the directory?
00:04:26vgwhen i go to a folder, say my latest music folder. and i am browsing through the files in it, it scrolls very slow
00:04:27amiconnI didn't observe browsing speed to depend on the number of files...
00:04:28jhMikeSvg: more font drawing and string operations I'd guess
00:04:46vgi am using a theme
00:05:02vgso if i put it in the default theme it might go faster?
00:05:22Kitt0sdrivers/lcd-16bit.c: In function 'lcd_puts_customline_scroll_style_offset':
00:05:24Kitt0sdrivers/lcd-16bit.c:881: error: 'struct scrollinfo' has no member named 'fgcolor
00:05:28Kitt0sdrivers/lcd-16bit.c:882: error: 'struct scrollinfo' has no member named 'bgcolor
00:05:35Kitt0swhat does that mean ?:|
00:05:53vgone other thing ive noticed.. if i have one song playing, and and i am looking through to dir to queue another song, if i scroll to quickly than the audio freezes for a moment
00:06:24Paul_the_NerdKitt0s: Do you know C?
00:06:45Kitt0syea but y doesn't it make a new member then?
00:07:00Paul_the_NerdIt? What it?
00:07:11vgoh well, maybe if i use tagcache instead than it will be faster

02:13:42dan_abarrywardell: Off the top of my head, I'm not sure.
02:13:57*dan_a needs to get an ARM book to keep by him
02:13:57barrywardelli think it should but was just checking
02:14:46barrywardelldan_a: also, in your cop patch, you use if(CURRENT_CORE == CPU)
02:14:57barrywardelldoes that work with rockbox cvs
02:15:03barrywardellor does it require your patch?
02:15:36dan_aIt should work with current CVS - I'm pretty sure it's used in the threading code.
02:16:20dan_aCURRENT_CORE and CPU should be defined in firmware/export/pp5020.h
02:16:52dan_aSorry, that's not true
02:17:26dan_aThey're defined in firmware/export/config.h
02:17:33barrywardellok, thanks

02:19:08Genre9mp3barrywardell: sorry for the interupt, but can you remember the keys in the Sansa simulator (just used your patch) I am having difficulties with up/down
02:19:16dan_aCURRENT_CORE is hardcoded to 0 on single core architectures (including PP chips until the dual core patch works properly,) or current_core() on dual core.
02:20:15Genre9mp3barrywardell: nevermind... just found out... it's 3 and 9

02:22:59barrywardellthanks dan_a. i'm trying out something with frequency scaling
02:23:04jhMikeSbarrywardell: there's one where left/right == up/down and vice versa too.
02:23:31dan_abarrywardell: I think setting the CPSR to 0x13 disables IRQ and FIQ. crt0-pp sets it to 0xd3 before jumping to main()
02:23:42 Quit sando (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
02:25:01barrywardelldan_a: hmm. i have it backwards so? i'm looking at a manual that says that bits 6 and 7 disable fiq and irq when they're set

02:36:26scorcheanyone happen to remember the approx size limit for romvbox on the FM recorder?
02:36:51Paul_the_Nerd233456 or something
02:36:59Paul_the_NerdThe number seemed really contrived when I saw it
02:36:59scorchethat means i have plenty to spare =)
02:37:08Paul_the_NerdYou've been trimming?
02:37:30Paul_the_NerdHuzzah, an actually correct number.
02:37:32amiconn228*1024 - 16
02:37:49scorchemade a patch that gets rid of tagcache...i knew i am fine on space, but was wondering how much spare space i have
02:38:03 Part RogerBacon ("Quitte")
02:38:20scorchesad thing, is that i ifdefed something important out in tree.c and have yet to figure out what it is exactly...
02:38:40Genre9mp3scorche: brutal
02:39:11scorcherombox.ucl is 221,006 bytes without tagcache
02:39:22scorchefor FM recorder
02:39:51amiconnYou cannot know exactly until you've put back your important thing
02:40:53scorchei know...but approx
02:41:46scorchepressing play on anything in the tree or setting config files/themes/etc isnt working...nor is going forward on any folder to open it
02:41:51scorcheand when i am in the menu and press the button to get out of the menu, it freezes
02:42:24scorchesounds like some issue with updating in tree.c?
02:42:33amiconnThe available space for rombox is 228KB on all archoses except Player which has 232KB available
02:43:19amiconn...unless you've put in a 512KB flash eprom, then you have plenty of space
02:43:40Paul_the_Nerdscorche: I tried compiling an iPod build recently, and left entered folders, and right exited them... Not quite the same problem, but it was weird menu behaviour.
02:44:42scorcheanyone with intimate knowledge of tree.c willing to have a quick look at it for me?

06:13:18aliaskDoes the OF still work?
06:13:35aliaskOriginal firmware... sorry
06:13:42Acidictadpolei dont know
06:13:46Acidictadpoleitunes doesn't see it
06:13:50Acidictadpoleand neithe does windows anymore
06:14:03aliaskTried resetting it to disk mode?
06:14:11Acidictadpolehow does one do that?
06:14:34aliaskPlug it into USB and hold menu and select down for about 20 seconds
06:15:03Acidictadpolepadt the restart?
06:15:17aliaskit should restart into disk mode
06:15:43Acidictadpolewhat are the signs that it is in "disk mode"
06:15:58aliaskshould show a usb image on screen
06:16:05Acidictadpolei dont see it
06:16:14aliaskcould the battery just be really dead?
06:16:18Acidictadpoleit's full
06:16:29Acidictadpolei recharged it earlier today
06:16:34aliaskwhat signs of life is it showing?
06:16:47Acidictadpolerockbox main menu (recent bookmarks etc) , full battery bar
06:16:54Acidictadpoleclock is right
06:16:58Acidictadpolelight turns on
06:16:59aliaskoh so rockbox boots...
06:17:01Acidictadpolei can scroll around
06:17:12aliaskwhat happens if you insert the usb while rockbox is running?
06:17:18Acidictadpoleyea, and while trying to move songs over i notice i have a 1gb hard drive
06:17:25Acidictadpoleon whats supposed to be a 20gb 4g
06:17:34Acidictadpolewindows doesn't see it as a drive anymore
06:17:38Acidictadpoleand itunes doesnt see it either
06:17:42aliaskdoes rockbox restart?
06:17:53aliaskor do anything at all?
06:17:56Acidictadpoleit can yes
06:18:03aliask"it can"?
06:18:11Acidictadpolei was holding menu and the center button for that 20seconds
06:18:22Acidictadpoleit restarted like 8 times during that 20 secnds
06:18:23aliasknono, when you insert the usb, does rockbox quit
06:18:37aliasksounds like a dead usb cable or usb connector
06:18:40Acidictadpoleit's not usb
06:18:42Acidictadpoleim using firewire
06:18:47Acidictadpoledoes that make a difference? :/
06:18:53aliaskno idea...
06:18:58Acidictadpoledoes it need to be usb? ill try
06:19:03scorchefirewire isnt supported
06:19:21Acidictadpoleit does something now
06:19:48Acidictadpoleok that fixed everything
06:19:55Acidictadpolewhere on the site does it say that btw? just so know ?
06:20:01scorchenot sure
06:20:07scorchei would check the manual or FAQ
06:20:09aliaskI've never heard it, so it can't be that common :S

06:22:39jhMikeSThought: shouldn't "like the plague" be update to something like "like hepatitis C"?
06:23:20aliaskI'm living in the 1600's am I now?
06:23:22scorcheAcidictadpole: you are right...i dont see it anywhere except in the forums...i will have it be added to the manual

06:23:40Acidictadpolethat confused the crap out of me and my roommate
06:23:42jhMikeSJust thinking about modernizing some expression. :)
06:23:48Acidictadpolecuz I did the ENTIRE installation with firewire
06:23:57Acidictadpoleand even moved over 1gb of songs
06:24:10Acidictadpolebut the problem arose when I noticed i could ONLY move over 1gb
06:24:12scorchewell, at least it was something easy =)
06:24:34jhMikeSAnd what with "I avoid hepatitis C like the plague"?
06:24:41aliaskAIDS would probably be more appropriate

06:27:36jhMikeSCan you reproduce the problem at will? Can you do it on an unpatched build?
06:27:55*jhMikeS notices you were gonna say how...:)

06:29:18jhMikeShmmm...I should try a different WPS to test. I just use default with my own font and bg
06:29:28Davide-NYCI renamed the daily folder to .rockbox and rebooted and reset
06:29:36Coldtoastone of my friends with a H300 tells me he has a prob with Rockbox where button presses don't respond sometimes
06:29:37Davide-NYCproblem gone
06:29:53Coldtoastwell, it doews.. but takes a few seconds
06:30:15Coldtoastwould that be due to the same thing causing fading probs on my ipod?
06:30:18jhMikeSDavide-NYC: just that change?
06:30:19Davide-NYCColdtoast: tell your friend to enable dircache and then reboot
06:30:29jhMikeSdircache? You mean you have it on?
06:30:35Davide-NYCI do not
06:30:43Davide-NYCI was answering coldtoast, sorry
06:30:55jhMikeSok neither do I but I don't have a WPS that looks into the future
06:31:21Coldtoastok. just told him
06:31:22Davide-NYCicatcher exists for all platforms (I think)
06:31:35jhMikeSI know, I mean I dont use one :)
06:31:56jhMikeSI always know the next song is coming
06:32:11Davide-NYCI wanted to reduce CPU load and not go custom AND have next track displayed
06:32:13*jhMikeS will check it right now
06:32:32Coldtoastheh. he had that disabled cos he thought, what with him having 9000 tracks, it might chew up memory
06:32:33jhMikeSbut you're saying iCatcher will do this?
06:33:11Davide-NYCyes. Icatcher has no peakmeters, exists in all regular builds and shows next track
06:33:36jhMikeSI only have about 7700 tracks :(
06:33:37Davide-NYCIt has more iCandy then I would like but hey, you can;t always get what you want
06:33:49jhMikeSMake your own
06:34:17Davide-NYCI would have to make one for all platforms and get it included in CVS to fit my requirements
06:34:26Davide-NYCI guess I could do that

07:37:00lexyarrr mateyy
07:37:11*Nimdae puts his ipod back together
07:37:18Kitt0sbut y can't i get it into USB mode?
07:37:25BHSPitLappythat a new part of rockbox, or are you referring to a non-rockbox mode
07:37:26Nimdaecharge it up a bit
07:37:44jhMikeSI demand to know where the better i2c driver for coldfire is hidden...amiconn?
07:37:46Nimdaewhen it has more of a charge, unplug it and let it reboot
07:37:49Kitt0sits wired because it should be full charged
07:37:59Nimdaeonce it's rebooted, plug it back in
07:38:21Kitt0sBHSPitLappy: it shows the bootloader.. then i see the rockbox then it gives the white USB rockbox icon.. then it goes to that screen
07:38:28Nimdaeyeah, that's happened to me before, i just left it and did something else, then later did those steps
07:38:34lexwtf rockbox has a disk mode for ipods?
07:39:02Nimdaeit doesn't have a proper usb implementation from what i understand, so it kicks it to ipod disk mode
07:39:08BHSPitLappyrockbox reacts to usb by switching into emergency diskmode.
07:39:23lexso if you just want to charge it, hold menu when you plug the cable
07:39:33scorcheNimdae: not is more that we havent figured out the USB hardware yet
07:39:40Kitt0sno i want disk mode !:\
07:39:53Nimdaescorche: right, that's what i mean, heh
07:39:55lexbtw, i sold my 1 year old photo for 135 euros
07:40:48scorche"I turned round and the dog was on fire."
07:40:50Nimdaebtw, i think somewhere in the wiki it mentions that rockbox on the ipods can't tell the difference between a real usb connection and just a plain power rockboxed ipod doesn't reboot to disk mode when i plug in just power
07:40:51scorchei would cry...
07:42:03***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
07:42:35Nimdaeit's actually kinda cool, when i have it in my car, i hit pause to stop playing, stick ipod in a hole, and leave...
07:42:40lexNimdae: that's why i stopped using rockbox, no sleep mode, no disk mode :(
07:42:54Nimdaethen when i get back in and start the car, the power kicks it on so it's booted by the time i'm looking for some tunes

07:43:07scorchelex: that really doesnt make any sense...
07:43:16lexso it's better to play music on apple os, at school i have to stop the music so many times and so much rebooting isn't good for the battery
07:43:24Nimdaerockbox doesn't have a true sleep mode, yeah, that kinda sucks
07:43:49lexyep yep
07:43:52Nimdaei've also noticed the implementation of repeating a single track is kinda poor
07:44:02lexmaybe it works better on nanos, because flash doesn't need so much power as a hard drive
07:44:03Nimdaeit'll play the track in the buffer, then it'll requeue it
07:44:05scorcherebooting doesnt do bad things to the battery
07:44:09Nimdaemeaning it spins up the disk a lot
07:44:21Nimdaerebooting just takes longer
07:44:23lexscorche: not on flash devices, but what about hd-devices
07:44:38Nimdaeactually, rebooting does kill the battery on ipods
07:44:40lexevery time i reboot to rockbox, the battery drains so much
07:44:50lexi don't know about nanos
07:44:56scorchestill not really...the only *possible* bad thing is the hd spinning up can cause usual wear...but that would happen anyway
07:44:56Nimdaethere's a computer at work that when i plug my ipod into it, it goes into a funky reboot loop, killed it in like a couple hours
07:45:49Nimdaei plugged it in to charge it from like 70% batt, went to check it so i could listen to it and it was almost completely dead, so i plugged it into another computer, heh
07:46:21lexmy dvb-t -card does that, when i unplug it, sometimes this goes to a reboot loop too :o
07:46:28lexand it's just an usb-card
07:46:41lexbut windows is windows
07:46:51lexmy usb's doesn't even work on mac osx :(

08:01:32Nimdaeof course, i've installed a few cvs updates since then too :P
08:01:56Rocket220its pretty nice software
08:02:26Coldtoastcrossfading and parametric EQ are worht it alone for my
08:02:35Nimdaeit'd be kinda funny if some company commissions rockbox to be ported to their platform and then used on that product

08:02:59ColdtoastI'm willing to put up with shorter battery life on my ipod
08:03:01*Nimdae waits 10 seconds for his ipod to boot :P
08:03:07Nimdaeyou know
08:03:15Nimdaei've had the shorter battery life from the beginning
08:03:28Nimdaei bought this ipod used from a friend and the next day had rockbox on it :P
08:03:38Coldtoastbuy a new battery
08:03:41Coldtoasthey're cheap
08:03:46Nimdaeit doesn't need it
08:03:50Nimdaei get about 8 hours on rockbox
08:03:51Coldtoastlike, $20 shipped
08:04:05Coldtoastyou can buy larger capacity betteries tho
08:04:05Nimdaewhich from what i've read is pretty good
08:04:12Nimdaeeh, no need
08:04:14Nimdaei might later
08:04:14Rocket220thats what i need to do, replace it battery in this thing down to about 1hr of battery life
08:04:15Coldtoast8hrs is TERRIBLE. heh
08:04:24ColdtoastI get ~27hrs on my h140. heh
08:04:39Nimdaethe ipod hardware isn't completely figured out
08:04:47ColdtoastI have an ipod battery in it tho. 2200mAH one
08:04:52Nimdaeit's notoriously bad compared to the life that the apple firmware gets
08:05:14Nimdaeyeah, in the 30gb video ipod, it's only 400 mAH
08:05:46Nimdaei can get a 580 for it
08:06:14Nimdae60/80 gb std battery is 600 mAh
08:06:22hcscan huge replacement batteries be expected not to explode?
08:06:48Nimdaemodifying the hardware always carries inherent risk
08:07:17Coldtoastaaah yay. they've updated the bmp_resize and album_art patches
08:07:26Nimdaei'm kinda hoping to find a larger capacity drive for my ipod
08:07:58Coldtoasttime to compile
08:08:11ColdtoastI just have a nano
08:08:14Nimdaei'm kinda keeping an eye on the coprocessor patch
08:08:31ColdtoastI quite like the nano
08:08:42Nimdaei want a nano for excercising
08:08:56Nimdaei'm happy with my video ipod though
08:09:26Coldtoastkind of a bummer the 2G was released 2 weeks after I bought mine. And the 8GB 2G is only $20 more than I paid for my 1G 4GB
08:09:42Coldtoastbut you get that
08:09:52ColdtoastI like the look of the 1G much more anyway
08:09:56scorchebut you would also be waiting a long time for rockbox
08:10:05Coldtoasttho... the black 2g looks VERY nic eindeed
08:10:20ColdtoastI'd wait to have the extra 4GB
08:10:37scorchei would just get a sansa if i wanted 8 gig
08:10:49Nimdaei might go for the 8gb 2g when rockbox is working on it
08:10:52Coldtoastwhy? I personally think they look horrible
08:10:55Nimdaenotice i say when ;)
08:11:03Coldtoastthe Sansa players are ugly
08:11:10ColdtoastI'm talking about the Sansa
08:11:15scorchei dont think they are that bad
08:11:19ColdtoastI do
08:11:27Coldtoastthey look cheap to me
08:11:35scorchebut also, it will get rockbox way before the nanos do =)
08:11:49Coldtoastobviously personal opinion
08:12:05scorchethe looks part, yes
08:12:28Coldtoastthe other reason I'm not so bummed I bought the 1G is the new 2g was put through the same drop test as the 1g was
08:12:32Coldtoastdid you see that?
08:12:39scorchei did
08:12:44scorchei love my nano
08:12:46Nimdaeyeah, it didn't do so well apparently
08:12:50scorcheand the fact that it was free =)
08:12:59Coldtoastthe 1g took, like, 6 drops and the one that broke the screen was from 9ft
08:13:09Coldtoastthe 2g, first drop and from 1.5ft
08:13:20Nimdaewell, it's all in how it's ipmacted too
08:13:23Nimdaeso it's not really fair
08:13:34Coldtoastthey can't all be liek that tho. prolly just that particular one
08:13:50Nimdaethe 1g probably could have survived the 9ft drop if it landed more gracefully, or failed a 1ft drop if it landed wrong
08:14:19Nimdaei would only put stock in thoses tests if they go through more than one device of that model
08:14:25Coldtoasthmm? the 1.5 ft drop, he took it jogging and it fell, was stopped by the earphone cable, detached then completed the fall from 1.5ft onto the road
08:14:29Nimdaei trust averages more
08:14:33Coldtoastthe 1g was 9ft onto road
08:14:50Nimdaebut the impact itself makes the difference
08:15:02scorchei would trust it more if a machine was used to drop the device to ensure they are dropped the exact same

08:15:16Nimdaelike i said, if the 1g took a less graceful impact at a shorter drop, it might have broken too
08:15:20Coldtoastwell, that's not exactly what I'd class as real-life testing tho
08:15:22hcsI recall zip disk tests boasting of throwing them out the window of a car on a highway
08:15:38hcsyet the drive itself would destroy them
08:15:52scorchehcs: well, they dont have a fragile screen =)
08:15:52Coldtoastsome guy testing it by taking it while he jogged and then having it drop as it would in a real life situation, there's value in that too
08:15:54Nimdaei need more pictures of the sansa
08:16:12NimdaeColdtoast: sure, but i trust averages more
08:16:29Nimdaeif he had taken 5 2gs and did that kind of test with each of them, i would trust those test results
08:16:34Coldtoastthe other test he did, the 2g fared better tho
08:16:51Coldtoastwhere he dumped the new nano into a back with his keys and carried it around for a day
08:17:01scorcheNimdae: of is violating the scientific method and all the way he did it =)
08:17:10scorcheyou have to have multiple tests and a control
08:17:16Coldtoastat the end, the body had a few scratches on it but the screen was unmarked. the 1g didn't do so well that
08:17:20Coldtoasterr.. there
08:18:08Coldtoastthe longer battery life on teh 2g is another thing I'd have liked
08:18:09 Join LinusN [0] (i=linus@rockbox/developer/LinusN)
08:19:00Coldtoastso the tossup would be; better looking+rockbox vs longer battery+more space
08:19:07Nimdaeeh, i think the sansa looks alright
08:19:22ColdtoastI'd pick the second becuase it'll eventually be longer battery+more space+rockbox
08:19:49Coldtoastplus the sound quality of the new 2g is supposedly slightly better and the screen is noticably sharper and brighter
08:20:14Nimdaeyeah, the screens on the 5.5g video ipods are supposedly sharper and brighter too
08:20:18Coldtoastbut oh well. the fact is I don't have the 2g. heh
08:20:24Nimdaeall i have to say to that is meh
08:20:41Nimdaei honestly didn't get an ipod for video anyway
08:21:00Coldtoastit's an ipod with video. screen quality is KINDA important when it supports video
08:21:08Nimdaei don't care for sharper and brighter, to be honest, because i thought it looked good already
08:21:23Nimdaei watched video on my ipod and imo it looks good
08:21:29Coldtoastbtw, it's not a video ipod. it's an ipod with video
08:21:42Nimdaei understand
08:21:46ColdtoastApple want to make a distinction between the 2
08:21:58Coldtoastit's pretty silly tho
08:22:21Nimdaewell, it's like the usb group wanted there to be a distinction between usb 2.0 and hi-speed usb
08:22:26hcsthey also don't want you to say "an iPod"
08:22:32hcsjust iPod
08:22:41Coldtoastpersonally, I don't think the screen is big enough for me. And it's not widescreen anyway
08:22:42hcslike it was some person's name
08:23:06Nimdaewell apple can blow me, i'll always refer to it as "an ipod"
08:23:10Nimdaeand my ipod just skipped, wtf
08:23:17Coldtoastif I buy a portable device for video, it has to be widescreen
08:23:54Nimdaelike what the 6g is rumored to be?
08:23:55Coldtoastthe only non-widescreen thing I own is a DS Lite

08:24:35LinusNehum, USB 2.0 is not the same thing as hi-speed USB
08:24:52NimdaeLinusN: i know
08:25:00Coldtoastyou have 2 flavours of USB2.0; 12Mb and 480Mb
08:25:17Coldtoastyou have Hi Speed USB2 and Full Speed USB2
08:25:19LinusNthe usb 2.0 standard happens to include hi-speed
08:25:36Nimdaewhy do you focus on my comment rather than the analogy? sheesh
08:26:54Coldtoastcos your analogy contained ambiguous information?
08:27:00*Nimdae circumvents wma drm using microsoft's own tools
08:27:26Nimdaeforget the analogy then
08:29:21Coldtoasthmm. which company was it who recent;y developed a phone with 10Mp camera?
08:30:13Nimdaei dunno but that's absurd
08:31:52BHSPitLappylol wow
08:32:02Coldtoastaaah. Samsung
08:32:10BHSPitLappyI thought the 1.3MP camera phone I've had my eye on was impressive
08:32:28BHSPitLappyNimdae, properly put.
08:32:58Coldtoast there it is
08:33:01BHSPitLappyanyone who takes their career seriously enough to require a 10MP camera, sure as hell won't be investing in a camera phone
08:33:15BHSPitLappywhat a gimmick
08:33:23Nimdaewell, you also have to consider space
08:33:24Coldtoasthmm? a 10Mp camera's not that expensive
08:33:39Coldtoastunless you're talking DSLR
08:33:47Coldtoasteven then, the new Canon 400d is pretty affordable
08:33:58Nimdaei would hope the camera has a sd slot (or similar) and supports the multi-gigabyte cards
08:34:05Coldtoastsure, it's not full-frame but still great
08:34:51*BHSPitLappy wants to find a decent digital camera, under 200 bucks
08:34:54Coldtoasteven if that phone could act as a USB Host, that's be cool. If it had no mem slot
08:35:18Coldtoastheh. you can have my V3 :)
08:35:32ColdtoastI couldn't give a crap about having a camera in my phone
08:35:44Nimdaeme neither
08:35:53Nimdaein fact, every day i take my phone to work i violate company policy ;)
08:36:00Nimdaesimply because it's a camera phone

08:37:01Nimdaeit was a samsung
08:37:24Coldtoastnot interested in 3g personally
08:37:51Nimdaewell, i want to build a car computer with internet connectivity and i thought of using the phone for that connectivity
08:37:58Coldtoastwhy the hell would I want to stream TV? And one of the nice things is NOT having to see people's ugly mugs when you call em
08:37:58Nimdae(read: i'm a geek)
08:38:12Nimdaei don't care for the video and audio streaming
08:38:16Nimdaei just want the high speed :P
08:38:39Coldtoastyou don't need to bothe rwith a phone at all if you want on-the-go wifi
08:39:20Coldtoastone of my friend's girlfriend has a wifi adapter from her phone provider that she just plugs into her laptop and she has wifi anywhere
08:39:56scorcheevdo is nice too
08:39:58Coldtoastit'd be using 3G I'd imagine. But she has no need for a phone, just the adapter
08:40:10Coldtoastdunno. never looked into all that
08:40:26scorchea bit pricier, but fast
08:40:37Nimdaewell, the problem with using the internet plans is you pay a buttload for it
08:40:42Nimdaelike $60+ a month
08:40:45Coldtoastonce they intall the ADSL2+ gear into the DSLAMs here, I'll have to ditch my wifi :/
08:40:52Coldtoastif I want solid 24Mbit
08:41:04Nimdaewhereas if you use a phone access plan (where you use the internet on your phone), you can use the phone as a makeshift modem
08:41:09Coldtoastcos I probably average around 18Mb on my 802.11G
08:41:23Bagderget a draft-802.11n box ;-)
08:41:40Coldtoastthat's goign to be expensive tho
08:41:45Bagdernot really
08:41:52Bagderthey're already here
08:41:59Coldtoasteven the cards alone here are something like $180AUD
08:42:21Bagderbut then, you should check your actual speed first
08:42:31BagderI have "24mbit"
08:42:36ColdtoastI'll get close to the full 24mbit

08:43:34scorcheand then i look at the speed/price in, say, japan
08:43:48Coldtoastdoesn't that suck? paying for 24Mb and getting ~15
08:44:05Bagderwell, 24 is about the same price as 8
08:44:08Bagderso not really
08:44:15Bagderand I knew it when I got it
08:44:21BagderI'm some 1600 meters away
08:44:44Coldtoastcheck this out tho... I have 1500/256 now and 24Mbit is the bloody same price
08:44:51Coldtoastsame cap tho (40GB)
08:45:04Bagderno cap here
08:45:21Coldtoastdo they throttle you after a certain point tho?
08:45:38Coldtoastthat's all they do here. I think they drop it to 64kbit. heh
08:45:50Bagderbut then I'd never be even close to any extreme amounts

11:11:48 Join barrywardell [0] (n=barrywar@
11:12:06Nimdaeit causes disk usage because it doesn't have enough power to fill the buffer

11:12:24pondlifeUrgh, that would be bad...
11:12:34pondlifeLucky I don't have an iPod ;)
11:12:46Nimdaethe hardware eq works fine
11:12:50Bagderenough power to fill the buffer?
11:13:15Nimdaeyeah, it stays at 75 mhz and struggles to fill the codec and pcm buffers
11:13:18Bagderah, you mean the compressed audio buffer
11:13:49ssstormy75mhz is the peak of it's regular performance
11:13:55ssstormywhy does it have to compress it?
11:13:57Bagderso yeah, if you run out of cpu it'll of course lag behind in all sorts of ways
11:14:04Bagderssstormy: ?
11:14:10Bagderssstormy: music is compressed you know
11:14:13Nimdaessstormy: it has to decompress it
11:14:17ssstormythe RAM is 32MB, that can still fit a few mp3's
11:14:26ssstormyand then decompress on access
11:14:30ssstormyinstead of on load to ram
11:14:46Bagdernow how would it load if not to ram?
11:15:21Bagderit seems you draw conclusions that aren't really correct
11:16:01pondlifeThe codec buffer (the big one) is compressed data. The decompression only happens when needed for playback.
11:16:18pondlifecodec buffer -> codec -> pcm buffer
11:16:24ssstormyno what I meant was decompress when it plays the music instead of decompress when it moves it to RAM
11:16:29pondlifeIt does
11:16:34ssstormyoh ok
11:16:34Bagderssstormy: yes, that's what it does
11:16:40ssstormyhmm what happens with mine
11:16:51ssstormythe PCM jumps, then falls, jumps, then falls
11:16:57ssstormyeach time falling further than it jumps
11:17:00ssstormyuntil it hits empty
11:17:01pondlifeThat's to be expected.
11:17:04ssstormydisk spinup time
11:17:11pondlifeThe codec buffer is the disk one.
11:17:18pondlifeWhat is that doing?
11:17:29ssstormyslowly diminishing
11:17:48pondlifeIt only needs to spinup to fill that when it gets nearly empty
11:17:56ssstormyso the problem is that it can't fill PCM fast enough
11:18:05ssstormyand for some reason spins up the disk when it refills the PCM
11:18:07pondlifeTrue, but that won't cause disk spinup.
11:18:15pondlifeHmm, what WPS are you using?
11:18:21ssstormyI have no idea
11:18:29ssstormyjust installed today
11:19:56pondlifeYou should be having music stop/starts, but no disk spinup in that state.

11:20:54pondlifeAlso - what do you see if you go into Info > Debug > View tagcache info ?
11:21:44pondlifeThe disk access may be due to something else, although with default settings I'm not sure what!
11:22:41dan_aI see skips at the same time as disk accesses too.
11:22:49dan_assstormy: Which model of iPod?
11:23:23pondlifeThe skips might well happen, the question is why the disk access..?
11:24:29ssstormymp3, cbr 128kbps
11:24:37Bagderah, 3g
11:25:02pondlifeHmm, cbr mp3 should be about as good as it gets.
11:25:29Bagderyeah, but 3g is probably the worst Rockbox performance
11:25:51pondlifeStill shouldn't be accessing the disk...
11:25:53 Quit damaki (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
11:25:56dan_aSo the disk accesses perhaps wouldn't be expected? I'll add that to my list of things to investigate
11:26:20pondlifeWell, there are lots of things that could be doing it... Buffer fill, Tagcache....
11:26:32Bagder... switching codec
11:26:57pondlifeBut if all the same format, then it shouldn't be doing that.
11:27:02dan_aIt wouldn't switch codec several times during one song, would it?
11:28:01Bagderhehe, no
11:28:08pondlifeI can't think why it would need to do that. Voice is MP3 too of course.
11:28:13Bagderunless you voice it
11:28:28Slasheridan_a: you can check from debug menu -> view cpu stack to check what threads are active (accesses disk)

13:05:10bluechip Hi. Is anybody able to explain (roughly) how a plugin makes calls to, for example, plot() within the simulator - maybe just point me at the appropriate source files?

14:57:16lostlogicnone of the changes between 1.368 and 1.371 of playback.c change pcm buffering or codec behavior at all, only file buffer. can you watch the audio thread screen and see if as it tries to crossfade the compressed codec buffer drops to zero or somethin like that?

16:07:52lostlogicanyone else having trouble with track skipping off buffer, or crossfade that started recently?
16:08:23*amiconn didn't even use any of his swcodec targets for listening to music recently
16:08:39lostlogicamiconn: yeah... and I never use crossfade
16:08:50amiconnMe neither
16:08:53preglowtried crossfade some time during the summer
16:08:57amiconnBagder: around?
16:08:57preglowit's actually quite cool
16:09:38*amiconn has found a way to reduce subshell spawning (and hence build time) even more
16:09:41lostlogicpreglow: if I listened to same-genre mixes, it would be, sure −− but I usually listen to a complete jumble of different genres and I don't htink that fade from rock to classical sounds good at all
16:10:11amiconnI am mostly listening to albums, and want to hear them as intended
16:10:26*petur hugs amiconn if this will reduce cygwin build time
16:10:27preglowand i listen to albums
16:10:31preglowso fading is unnecessary
16:10:39amiconnBut even when listening to singles I don't like any extra fading
16:10:56amiconnpetur: It will reduce build time on all platforms
16:11:46amiconnThe idea is to replace all those @echo "Doing blah" with $(info Blah) which is an internal function of 'make'
16:12:04lostlogicamiconn: tis a good idea
16:12:18lostlogicamiconn: I heartily approve of you giving the build system a thorough going over.
16:12:41amiconnIn order to keep the same output with both 'make' and 'make V=1', the $(info ....) needs to be placed on the same line as a command though
16:13:02amiconnIt also works when plitting the line with \ , but the the output with V=1 changes slightly
16:13:48*amiconn would like to know which option is better
16:14:11 Join Rincewind [0] (
16:14:14amiconnDo we want to keep output identical with V=1, or do we want to keep the Makefile more readable?
16:14:38lostlogicmakefiles are hard enough to read as is ;)
16:14:42preglowwhy, yes
16:14:46amiconnNow the output is e.g.
16:15:08amiconnLD solitaire.elf
16:15:09Leedsyay for bluetooth audio
16:15:12amiconnm68k-elf-gcc -W -Wall -O - ........
16:15:27amiconnWhen using $(info) and splitting lines, it will look like:
16:15:32amiconnLD solitaire.elf
16:15:40amiconnm68k-elf-gcc -W -Wall -O - ........
16:16:17amiconni.e. an extra \ on a separate line (and the command will be indented by one TAB
16:16:35amiconnWithout V=1 it doesn't matter
16:16:54lostlogichmph −− that \ is annoying.
16:17:11preglowi almost never use V=1 anyway
16:17:14preglowi can live with it
16:17:45Kitt0scan some1 help me?
16:17:52amiconnWithout the \, said example would look like this in the Makefile:
16:17:52Kitt0si think my ipod is fucked :\
16:17:53Kitt0sit shows the bootloader.. then i see the rockbox then it gives the white USB rockbox icon.. then it goes to that screen
16:17:54amiconn$(SILENT)$(info LD $(notdir $@))$(CC) $(GCCOPTS) -O -nostdlib -o $@ $< -L$(BUILDDIR) $(CODECLIBS) -lplugin $(LINKBITMAPS) -lgcc -T$(LINKFILE) -Wl,−−gc-sections -Wl,-Map,$(OBJDIR)/$*.map
16:18:28amiconnNotice the placement of the $(info) part
16:18:58lostlogicwhy is the \ on its own line and not on the same line as the LD solitaire.elf?
16:19:14amiconn$(info) appends a newline
16:19:54lostlogicno way to disable the $(info) construct entirely when V=1?
16:19:57preglowalways with the dishes!
16:20:14amiconnMaybe we can do that...

20:40:28Paul_The_NerdAt least for downloading them, syncing would be a different thing, but I assume we're talking about in relationship to Rockbox anyway.

20:45:50BigMacAliright I have searched the forums and found nothing on this exactly
20:46:10BigMacI am getting about 2 hour battery life on a 30 gb video
20:46:16BigMacwhich is horrible
20:46:21Paul_The_NerdBigMac: Are you using an official build?
20:46:50 Quit webguest22 (Client Quit)
20:47:02Paul_The_NerdAnd what battery life do you get with similar settings in the retail firmware (so compare the two with cleared EQ, similar volume, similar backlight use, same playlist)
20:47:26BigMacI think the fact that most of my music is flac, and they have larger filesizes that may be taking more hdd power thus more battery
20:47:28preglowlowlight: well, i'm not expert on queues either. just check out firmware/kernel.c and see how they work
20:47:29lowlightpreglow: and if I make Q_CODEC_REQUEST_FAILED=15 it seems to work ok.
20:47:37BigMacI'd say around 10-11 hours
20:47:40Paul_The_NerdBigMac: Yes, FLAC spins up the disk much more often.
20:48:03Paul_The_NerdBigMac: I guarantee you don't get 10-11 hours with the same playlist since the original firmware doesn't support FLAC. Thank you for not reading my question fully.
20:48:55 Join EspeonEefi [0] (i=espeonee@STRATTON-SIX-NINETEEN.MIT.EDU)
20:49:04BigMacso would batch convert all my flac to ogg (q7-q8) because the ogg decoder is faster
20:49:17Paul_The_NerdThe Ogg decoder is much slower than FLAC.
20:49:59BigMacI heard it was very fast on the ipod
20:49:59Nimdaebut it causes fewer disk spinups
20:49:59Paul_The_NerdThe files just fit in RAM so while more CPU is spent decoding, the disk spins up less often.
20:49:59BigMacseveral times
20:49:59preglowamiconn: you did check and find out that a 16x16 mul should work for 16 bit flacs, yes?
20:49:59Paul_The_NerdBigMac: "Very Fast" doesn't mean "Faster than FLAC"
20:49:59Paul_The_NerdBigMac: Right now, I believe MP3 has pulled ahead of Vorbis on iPod even.
20:50:31BigMacSo what would be my best bet then on trying to get more juice out of my battery
20:50:37amiconnFLAC is our most efficient decoder afaik (not counting uncompressed formats)
20:50:40Nimdaeconvert to ogg or mp3
20:51:02BigMacThey just said ogg is slower...
20:51:07Davide-NYCQuestion: will mp3.encoder take any input type or just wav?
20:51:16amiconnpreglow: Hmm, don't remember right now...
20:51:17Nimdaeor some other lossy compression that makes smaller files
20:51:20Paul_The_NerdBigMac: Slower but doesn't spin the disk as much. I *never* said it used more battery.
20:51:29preglowamiconn: i'm almost certain we concluded the sh can be used, hence what i say is true
20:51:35Paul_The_NerdOgg uses more battery than MP3 yes, but less than FLAC
20:51:36NimdaeBigMac: maybe it is slower, but disk spinup is going to cause higher battrey consumption than a slower decoder
20:51:52preglowamiconn: i'm going to change to 16x16 mac instructions in the same go now
20:51:52BigMacoh alright
20:51:56NimdaeBigMac: i get 7 to 8 hours on my 30 gb ipod video using ogg
20:52:07BigMacso ogg q7 should be decent then right
20:52:13amiconnpreglow: why? There's no speed advantage...
20:52:13BigMacthat sounds alot better
20:52:23Paul_The_NerdBigMac: Tips for saving battery life: Do not use the EQ. Do not use Replaygain. Do not use Crossfeed or Crossfade. Use playlists. Set the backlight timer as low as possible. Do not use DirCache or TagCache. Do not browse your music, just start the playlist and go.
20:52:53Nimdaewhat if you load tagcache to ram?
20:52:56Paul_The_NerdBigMac: Do not use themes with lots of images, or backdrop images. Set the limits for files in folder to as small as possible (putting files in multiple folders if necessary), set the anti-skip buffer as low as possible
20:53:09Paul_The_NerdNimdae: TagCache in RAM means that it takes up space used for the audio buffer == worse battery life
20:53:20BigMacOk None of those options are on accept tag cache
20:53:26BigMacI use playlists
20:53:34Nimdaebut it doesn't use that much space
20:53:37 Join BigBambi [0] (
20:53:41BigMacI don't want Dir Cahce on anyway
20:54:00Davide-NYCI think mp3.encoder should be renamed wav2mp3 since it only takes WAV input. Where do I suggest this?
20:54:00Paul_The_NerdNimdae: He asked how to improve his battery life. It does use some, and it does make a difference.
20:54:04preglowamiconn: why not? no speed advantage? there's a slight one, i think, the emac stall probably won't happen
20:54:13amiconnIt will
20:54:16Paul_The_NerdDavide-NYC: Really, that'd qualify as a feature request, I think
20:54:21Nimdaei still get 6 or 7 songs queued in codec buffer
20:54:21Paul_The_NerdOnly vaguely so, but still
20:54:27preglowamiconn: how do you know? the a 16x16 result is ready after one cycle
20:54:33amiconnThe datasheet lists the exact same cycle counts for mac.w and mac.l
20:54:40Paul_The_NerdNimdae: It's probably only like a 2% difference on total battery time.
20:54:47preglowamiconn: which is what, 1 cycle? i think that's not really true
20:54:51amiconnOne cycle, but the thing is pipelined
20:54:52BigMacI will turn those off
20:55:00preglowamiconn: you get one cycle throughput, but a three cycle latency
20:55:00Nimdaeyeah, but it makes for a bit faster response when browsing your music ;)
20:55:06preglowamiconn: afaik
20:55:20BigMacDoes anyone know a good batch ogg encoder of hand, or should I go ask google
20:55:22preglowamiconn: the latency for a 16x16, however, should be 1 cycle also
20:55:22Paul_The_NerdNimdae: Maybe less. But it's an optional option, that you can avoid. Actually, if you don't browse often (or at all beyond when first starting playback) tagcache on disk is better than in RAM
20:55:41amiconnAnd due to a hardware bug, the emac stalls even if you fetch a different accumulator after issuing a mac instruction
20:55:49markunPaul_The_Nerd: what's the feature you add by giving something a better name?
20:55:51BigMacand ogg q7 file sizes should be a lot smaller then flac correct
20:56:05NimdaeBigMac: a lot, yes
20:56:09amiconnpreglow: why do you think so?
20:56:16Paul_The_Nerdmarkun: You add "decreased user confusion"
20:56:41BigMacWhy wouldn't that be taking away then Paul_The_Nerd
20:56:45amiconnIt looks like the emac multiplier is 32x32->40, so using 16bit won't change anything
20:56:46Paul_The_Nerdmarkun: It's not a bug, as things are working as intended, and it's not a patch, so that really only leaves "feature request" I think, even if it's not an ideal category.
20:56:50Davide-NYCPaul_The_Nerd: I would also like to request more flyspray 'operating system' target subsets like swcodec and coldfire etc. Possible?
20:56:58Davide-NYCwhere would I do that?
20:57:04Paul_The_NerdDavide-NYC: That's definitely a feature request. :-P
20:57:17Davide-NYCgetting to it, thanks
20:57:31markunDavide-NYC: I think it's better to just bug devs from time to time :)
20:57:50Paul_The_Nerdmarkun: Bugging devs works, but if you have a feature request already filed, they can't just say "File a feature request" and ignore you. :-P

20:58:45Davide-NYCquick question for my flyspray feature request: will mp3.encoder accept other non-compressed files such as AIFF?
20:58:47markunIsn't there a ipod related channel we can point people to?

20:59:04lexyou mean this?
20:59:08preglowamiconn: because a 32x32 mul is an operation done in parts while a 16x16 mul is not
20:59:13preglowamiconn: i'm pretty sure i read this some place
20:59:14lexi guess it's only the encoding
20:59:17jhMikeSDavide-NYC: All I had to do was not use white text and I could see all the data on the Xcatcher themes then too.
20:59:21preglowamiconn: anyway, performance gain or not, it doesn't hurt
20:59:41lexmarkun: so i bought a 5.5G to replace that photo i had :p
20:59:45amiconnpreglow: Where was that? Maybe it's done like this on non-emac coldfires
20:59:52lexyeah, it won't reboot after google videos' videos
20:59:57preglowamiconn: maybe, it's a bit hard to find detailed and exact information
21:00:05Davide-NYCjhMikeS: that's a funny reason for it not to work, can a diff between font and background color be specified in a WPS?
21:00:10preglowamiconn: but like i said, it's quickly done, and there's a modest chance of it getting a tiny bit faster
21:00:19Davide-NYCjhMikeS: or is that not necessary?
21:00:33jhMikeSDavide-NYC: It just uses your setting
21:00:57Learpreglow: I read something like that too, but that was for the mac, not the emac in newer coldfires.
21:02:05jhMikeSamiconn: which part of i2c was customized for iRivers (file)? If making that better can help so much I think it's high prio for the x5.
21:03:15preglowLear: might be, might be, hard to be sure with the conflicting information and all
21:04:24preglowthe 5249 docs say that an msac.l takes 3 cycles, but everything else 1
21:04:26preglowi like that
21:06:59Kasperlehas anyone played with the patches for the 5.5G iPod? when i patch and compile my own bootloader and install that to the iPod, the iPod will hang on the Apple Logo upon reset (it won't even get to the point where the backlight is turned on)

21:42:47preglowjhMikeS: that's pretty nice
21:43:01preglowjhMikeS: recording and playback should be almost symmetric, weird you can do one but not the other
21:43:04jhMikeSpreglow: thank got for the new scheduler in that regard
21:43:09preglowjhMikeS: probably the resampler's fault

21:43:18k0rnzanyone got any tips on why iTunes is not seeing my IPod Nano even after reinstall of Itunes and restore of Ipod Nano. I'm running Windows XP Home SP2 with latest updates

21:45:19Davide-NYCDear DEVS please read:
21:45:22linuxstbobo: It would be nice to rearrange the buffers, but it doesn't look like anyone will do it, so IMO we should probably provide 64MB 5g builds.
21:45:24jhMikeSpreglow: well...we'll stop resampling hw rates soon
21:46:20preglowjhMikeS: good
21:46:21obolinuxstb: I guess they can be removed again with a note if that change does ever take place...
21:46:47jhMikeSAFTER my little recording tweak :-P
21:47:15preglowso you're gonna support wlck?
21:49:00jhMikeSpreglow: was that for me? Whatever setup is needed to get the codec chip running at any available speed. Have to use MCLK1/WCLK/dividers depending upon the uda or tlv

21:50:15preglowcan't remember what it's called
21:50:24preglowif was fiddling around with supporting it back when i did spdif recording
21:50:29preglowbut ran out of time/motivation for doing it
21:51:02jhMikeSThere was trouble using the WSPLL on for recording in slave mode...switch it back to MM and things seem to work.

21:52:21jhMikeS11,22,44,88 are available for playback and record on x5 and playback on iRiver. 11,22,44 for recording on iRiver.
21:53:57preglowand playback on iriver?
21:54:07k0rnzanyone know where I might be able to find a copy of the old apple ipod restore utility, Itunes cant see my ipod so I cant update/restore it
21:54:19 Part falkyre
21:55:19jhMikeSplayback rates on iRiver is same as x5
21:56:06jhMikeSbut the ADC can only go to 55kHz so no iRiver recording that high.
21:56:23Davide-NYCI hate that fact
21:56:23preglowreally? but it can go higher for playback, right?
21:56:29preglowi seem to remember around 80khz or something
21:56:41preglowon iriver we've got the complication of spdif too
21:56:49preglowif spdif out is enabled, we should always run at 44.1khz
21:57:14jhMikeSpreglow: I set it up to run at the closest rate to the input
21:57:34jhMikeSthe monitoring that is
21:57:45preglowthinking more about playback
21:58:10jhMikeSahh I see...
21:58:16preglowthe only spdif rate we're capable of using for playback is 44.1khz
21:58:41preglowbecause there only is 32khz, 44.1khz and 48khz
21:59:41*_flik_ figures he has to find the answer himself
22:00:04jhMikeSWhy worry about recording other SPDIF rates them? What actually uses them?
22:00:11 Quit k0rnz ()
22:00:15preglow_flik_: got a patch?
22:00:52_flik_nope, i am not sure if it can be regarded as a bug in the jpeg plugin
22:00:58jhMikeSof couse that's a slightly higher level decision and limiting rate options is rather simple
22:01:05_flik_i just had a look at the plugin loader mechanism
22:01:15preglowjhMikeS: because we can, really. problem is we can send at pretty much whatever rate we want (i figure), but we've got no way to tell a receiver what we're sending, so we have to rely on it being able to find out
22:01:21preglowjhMikeS: and i'm willing to bet not much can
22:02:02_flik_the problem is, that using the ui simulator plugins are loade using dlopen which seems to keep it resident in memory
22:02:12jhMikeSmakes sense. When SPDIF out is on, just pick playback to be the closest one of those
22:02:13preglow_flik_: ahh, riiight, so it's a sim only bug
22:02:34preglowjhMikeS: closest one of the three spdif rates? we can only do 44.1khz of them
22:03:01_flik_preglow: yes, i guess it is something that can only be triggered in the sim
22:03:29 Quit TeaSea (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))

22:08:11_flik_preglow: maybe the os still keeps the plugin in memory, even if they are dlclosed?
22:08:13jhMikeSIf they're supposed to be initialized data they'd better be.
22:08:25_flik_preglow: i am running os x btw

22:19:27preglow_flik_: and it crashes even if the file you're trying to open is jpeg?
22:19:28_flik_preglow: the crash could not be reproduced when setting entries to zero before calling get_pic_list() in plugin_start(...) of jpeg.c

22:33:01TerrorByteOkay, here goes.
22:33:04[dot]_jbut, using ubuntu, it will only detect the device if i'm booted into the apple side
22:33:12TerrorByteIs anyone here black?
22:33:19TerrorByteIt's a serious question guys.
22:33:27Paul_The_NerdTerrorByte: This is #Rockbox... it's for Rockbox purposes.
22:33:35Bagder[dot]_j: rockbox on ipod doesn't yet have its own usb mode
22:33:38TerrorByteAw come on Paul, I know.

22:33:39jhMikeSTerrorByte: As the night...but only in my heart
22:33:45linuxstb[dot]_j: Rockbox doesn't have USB/Firewire detection on the 3g yet - you need to manually boot into the Apple firmware or the emergency disk mode - see
22:33:54TerrorByteLOL jh.
22:33:58[dot]_jah, that explains it
22:34:07[dot]_jworks fine on my video ipod...

22:34:54TerrorByteI mean in the light, the natural color of your face.
22:34:58TerrorByteThat clear enough?
22:35:16_flik_preglow: although it doesn't crash when directly loading the jpeg i still see the entries variable increasing although it shouldn't
22:35:39*Paul_The_Nerd wonders if there's a sign on the door that says "Ask us questions unrelated to Rockbox, or questions you can answer yourself, just *anything* but relevant questions"

22:35:47preglow_flik_: well, i can't make it crash, at least
22:35:57[dot]_jso... does anyone know if 3g usb detection is in the works?

22:37:18TerrorByteYeah, I've noticed preglow... And I got my answer..
22:37:28Kitt0sits bmp2rb, Bagder.
22:37:32TerrorByteEither there's no one black here, or they aren't very talkative.
22:37:41 Part TerrorByte
22:37:41BagderKitt0s: then it is in memory, so 4 it is
22:37:45_flik_preglow: because maybe with the right order it doesn't crash although the bug is still there
22:37:46[dot]_jso... any idea how differnt say the video & 3gen ipods are when it comes to such things?

22:42:49[dot]_jFam - how often you watch videos on the thing?
22:43:01[dot]_jI ask cause I have a video ipod and never use it for video, so rockbox works fine for me
22:43:24linuxstbThere's a video player in progress, but it's designed for all the other players Rockbox supports - it doesn't use the 5g's video processor, and probably never will. It's working, but without sound.
22:44:36FamicomI've never done it yet, but yes, I'd like to get some of my dvds into my ipod
22:44:58jhMikeSlinuxstb: why would it never if someone wants to do it?
22:44:58[dot]_jyou could still put itunes back and dual boot
22:45:15Famicomand what about a third party OS ?
22:45:16linuxstbjhMikeS: A video player using the Broadcom chip would be a different plugin IMO.
22:45:21[dot]_juse apple side for video & rockbox for everything else
22:45:52linuxstbThe Apple firmware appears to just pass the compressed video/audio data to the broadcom chip, which does the decoding and display, and passes PCM data back to the portalplayer chip to be sent to the DAC.

22:53:15Famicomlinuxstb, so now I can reinstall iTUNES on my pc and it will comunicate with my iPOD?
22:53:43Famicombeing unnecessary to uninstall rockbox, I mean
22:54:02linuxstbYes, you don't even need to be in the Apple firmware to use iTunes.

23:06:03z0dethx again
23:06:35*petur wonders if anybody ever heard of a 'device_instance' type in a DOS program
23:10:39My_Sicplease what mean this erro : "data abort at 000004CC"
23:12:25_flik_that rockbox crashed when the program counter was at address 0x000004CC, if that helps you
23:12:53preglowand that it did so thanks to unaligned memory
23:13:11Bagderand the .map file can explain what's in that memory

23:20:51linuxstbhcs: Any idea if it's certain codecs, or all codecs?
23:21:04_flik_preflow: it behaves the way i noticed in the uisimulator: when dlopen()ing and dlclosing() the static variables are not reinitialized
23:21:07hcslinuxstb: I'm doing testing along that line now

23:21:31_flik_sorry preglow not preflow
23:21:45z0dedoes rockbox have a back button, im stuck in the picture viewer on the x5
23:21:52hcslinuxstb: but I've noticed it in mp3 and aac, most of my recent testing was with mono files, though, so it didn't become apparent
23:22:07linuxstbhcs: I've never noticed it, but I'm not sure I would anyway...
23:22:40z0deits the power button
23:22:51preglow_flik_: i'd report this to someone who should know, then, this is obviously a bug some place
23:23:06hcslinuxstb: it's accompanied by an irritating click even if there's no obvious difference between the channels, as the waves don't quite match up
23:23:59 Quit Arathis ("[rl_bot quit]")
23:24:10_flik_preglow: i will try the test on linux first though
23:24:43preglow_flik_: just put the source somewhere and i can test right now
23:25:05yipehello rockboxers, I've got a pretty simple question and I just can't seem to locate the answer on the website
23:25:15preglowyipe: then ask away
23:25:22linuxstbhcs: In which case, I've never noticed it. What format do you normally listen to?
23:25:40yipehow do you get BACK to the wps once you've left it to go look around at whatever, WITHOUT messing with the track that's playing
23:26:00preglowyipe: press play
23:26:01linuxstbyipe: PLAY on most (all?) devices.
23:26:03yipesometimes I might wanna turn the volume up, or rewind, and I can't do nothin' without starting the whole track over again,
23:26:08_flik_preglow: ok its at and
23:26:13yipeare you serious? I'm an idiot
23:26:28hcslinuxstb: this seems to be specifically an issue with barrywardell's cpufreq4.patch
23:26:28yipeyeah, that's it, thank you
23:26:54hcslinuxstb: as I very rarely noticed it before I started to test this, I usually listen to mp3s
23:27:09linuxstbhcs: OK. I haven't tried that yet - I'm on vacation, and don't have my photo with me.
23:27:44 Quit GreyFoux ("Le vrai danger, c'est quand les hommes penseront comme les ordinateurs")
23:27:56linuxstbMy first guess would be that it's interfering with the FIQ in some way, causing a sample to be dropped.
23:28:07yipeam I right in guessing that the battery level indicator and the estimates of running time left aren't too accurate?
23:28:27Paul_The_NerdIn many cases the estimated time remaining is especially horrible.
23:28:31hcslinuxstb: so it goes to the dsp fully interleaved?
23:28:34linuxstbhcs: Does it happen when the CPU is being boosted/unboosted?
23:28:37linuxstbhcs: yes.
23:29:03 Quit Rincewind ("Bye")
23:29:24hcslinuxstb: it does seem to be associated with the boosting/unboosting
23:29:32preglow_flik_: counts from 0 to 4, then starts over again
23:29:44preglow_flik_: which looks to me to be correct behaviour
23:29:54 Join Abst [0] (n=Abst@unaffiliated/abst)
23:30:00_flik_preglow: ok, on os x it counts to 24
23:30:11linuxstbhcs: If barrywardell's patch disables interrupts, maybe it is disabling them for too long. The FIQ needs to keep a 32-byte (I think) FIFO from emptying.
23:30:12preglow_flik_: clearly buggy behaviour, now go nag apple about it ;)
23:30:31hcslinuxstb: running the adx decoder it doesn't seem to be an issue, and that almost never requires boosting
23:30:39hcslinuxstb: very possible, he does disable interrupts
23:31:16_flik_preglow: i will, thanks again for testing
23:31:20preglow_flik_: np
23:31:48Kitt0sLinusN, you around?
23:32:45Genre9mp3Kitt0s: He is not even online
23:33:01Kitt0slol :P
23:35:03preglow_flik_: btw, you should probably check if this is an issue on other bsds too

23:45:39linuxstbpreglow: I believe so. At least the wiki claims so.

23:52:13preglowright, that might be it...
23:52:15linuxstbIIRC, it needs the ,.bin

23:56:17z0dewhat about the usb as i have the doc which has both usb and charger pluged in to it. can rockbox prioertise the charger?
23:56:28z0deand only usb when comp tells it too.
23:57:15_flik_oops, i get a java.lang.NullPointerException when trying to log into the apple bug reporter ;-)
23:57:18preglowwtf, it refuses to let me update the bootloader
23:57:58linuxstbz0de: I've no idea. LinusN or jhMikeS may know if you catch them around - I think they're the two main low-level X5 developers.
