#rockbox log for 2006-10-31

00:00:04Paul_the_NerdBut are you sure you extracted and overwrote the whole .rockbox folder?
00:00:08TempisI guess just the binary
00:00:10peturjhMikeS: nice!
00:00:11TempisI thought I did
00:00:36scorchePaul_the_Nerd: yeah, but that should be there already from fully installing whatever build
00:00:52Paul_the_Nerdscorche: But notice that his plugins, none of them, are working?
00:01:03Paul_the_Nerdscorche: Which is why the firwmare_flash.rock isn't either. :)
00:01:13jhMikeSthanks. everthing seems on the up with it. can't test optical 'till be cables come
00:01:28scorcheyeah, but that isnt anything that should be an issue if he fully installed
00:02:17Paul_the_Nerdscorche: I was trying to determine if the full installation had happened properly though, it sounds like it didn't.
00:02:37Tempishold on I think I may have found something
00:02:53scorcheTempis: i am assuming you do not have the ability to compile builds?
00:03:22scorchebah...vmware isnt letting me go in through samba..
00:03:40Tempisdamnit, it won't let me delete the current .rockbox folder

00:09:13Davide-NYCnope :-(
00:09:28jhMikeSrrrr...have to make one then
00:09:50Davide-NYCbut this cable is worth buying:

00:11:12Tempissomething has happened and the .rockbox folder is corrupt
00:11:22Davide-NYCBelieve me, if you're an "audio only" kind of guy this is THE PLAYER to beat.
00:12:11Davide-NYCIf you like colors and such then the X5 is much cooler. But I only care about connectivity and audio quality and those sort of 'dry' endeavours

00:57:19 Quit gwxnei001 (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
01:03:07amiconnDavide-NYC: Sure the H1x0 has s/pdif, but when it comes to analog audio quality, the X5 is clearly better than the h1x0
01:03:36amiconnX5 doesn't have tone controls, but the dac in the h1x0 (or probably the circuitry around it) is rather noisy
01:04:40scorcheTempis: if you want
01:04:48amiconnMaybe it differs between units, but that's what I observed with my units
01:04:58scorchebut if you have a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter, it will be quicker
01:05:05TempisI don't
01:05:22scorcheare you sure there is a problem with the drive?
01:05:24amiconnQuick format won't take long even through usb1.1
01:05:25Tempisis there a decent guide to switching out the HD
01:05:32TempisI'm pretty sure
01:05:43JdGordonamiconn: should I not touch the archos taregts today when im bored?
01:05:45Genre9mp3amiconn: have you noticed any other differencies in the sound besides the SNR?
01:05:47TempisI've run scan disk twice and it keeps finding errors
01:06:07Tempisplus there have been a few times when I was starting up the Archos when it would give me a HD error
01:06:36Genre9mp3amiconn: Or maybe between H100 and H300 (they use the same chip though)
01:06:48amiconnGenre9mp3: Nope, at least not with rockbox (and I would be surprised if there were one)
01:06:53Paul_the_Nerdamiconn: I've found the H120 to be quite noisy as well, in that context. The iFP-700 is actually nearly equally so.
01:07:29amiconnDunno about the OFs; I just played a few tracks with of long ago on my 140, and actually not a single track with the x5 of

01:08:07Genre9mp3I must admit that when I first listened to my H300 I got more hiss than I'd expect to
01:09:05Genre9mp3amiconn: Do you think the problem is with the dac or with the amplification of the unit?
01:09:43 Join scorche` [0] (
01:09:45amiconnI'm not sure. According to the datasheet the dac should have good enough snr to not cause audible hiss
01:10:02 Quit scorche (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
01:10:14amiconnBut then both my h140 and my h340 have that hiss - and both use the same dac...
01:10:44Genre9mp3Maybe I should do some tests with the line out... this by-passes any amplification, am I right?
01:10:55amiconnTicking remotes seem to be common among coldfire based daps
01:11:12Paul_the_NerdGenre9mp3: It's readily apparent on line-out too, or was in my brief test.
01:11:35amiconnIn that respect, the H300 is the best shielded one (at least mine is). Just silencing the /CS got completely rid of the ticking

01:24:54Genre9mp3hmm... according to the uda datasheet the typical SNR for the headphone driver is 93dB with a minimum of 87dB
01:25:37Genre9mp3sounds good... on paper :/
01:25:49preglowand that's a-weighted
01:26:31Genre9mp3yes a-wieghted it says
01:26:40Genre9mp3what exactly that means?

01:39:01gwxnei001hey guys my ipod mini 1 keeps restarting with rockbox installed. is it worth having it? or should i use the ipod software until there is a stable release for ipod mini???
01:39:09Genre9mp3I wonder what are the specs for the X5
01:40:59Awakenno news on 5.5 80gb ipod yet i spose? beyond whats on the forums?
01:41:16Genre9mp3Aha... the TLV datasheets gives 97dB typical SNR and 90dB minimum
01:41:41Genre9mp3So according to specs, less hiss for the X5
01:42:21gwxnei001or should it run smoothly?
01:43:45Genre9mp3Interesting fact though is that the UDA gives better SNR than the TLV on Analog-to-Digital
01:43:51preglowgwxnei001: bugs will be had, a "stable" release might be long in the coming
01:44:33jhMikeSmaybe they overdo the noise shaping on H120 ;P
01:44:59Genre9mp3TLV: 90 (with min 85) and UDA: 97 (with min 92)
01:45:00preglowjhMikeS: got your h120?
01:45:27jhMikeSpreglow: yup. charging it (was tottaly drained) then upgrade
01:46:50gwxnei001yeah i understand that, think it might be my battery though. i'm gonna try with apples software and see how that goes. good work guys!
01:49:04gwxnei001is there an easy way to format my mini? without waiting for a 37 meg download
01:49:17jhMikeSdoes it say when charging's done or do you have to guess? :)
01:49:36amiconnThe green LED will switch off
01:49:54amiconnThis is hardware controlled
01:50:11jhMikeSLong time from almost empty? It's been on a couple hours.
01:50:27amiconnFull charge should take max. 2 hours
01:50:50amiconnMaybe the very first is longer... don't remember
01:51:38jhMikeSIt had a little and I ran it for about 10min and it then gave battery low on boot the next time

04:43:53Davide-NYCI hate to badger you guys but what is the procedure to update MAKE in a VMWare image?
04:44:52scorcheyou spelt it wrong
04:45:19scorchebtw, just an apt-get should be fine
04:48:11Paul_the_Nerdapt-get install what?
04:49:17JdGordonapt-get install make most probably
04:49:23JdGordonno scrtahc that...
04:49:27JdGordonto apt-get update
04:49:31JdGordonand apt-get upgrade
04:49:38*Paul_the_Nerd is not familiar with apt-get at all
04:50:21scorcheif not apt-get, the sources are available at
04:51:03JdGordonoh no! another talkative (byt hte looks of it) ipod user on the ml :'(
04:51:34Coldtoastsorry, why do you need to update MAKE?
04:51:51scorcheJdGordon: yeah...
04:52:24ColdtoastI thought the vmware image had evreything?
04:52:50Paul_the_NerdColdtoast: Because the vmware image does age with time. :-P
04:53:16Coldtoastthat may be the case... but it still has everything you need I thought
04:53:51scorchemake 3.80 still works
04:53:56Paul_the_NerdYeah, but that doesn't mean there aren't newer versions of the same things if you want them
04:54:12ColdtoastI think it's pointless worrying about it dude
04:54:19Coldtoastthere'a a LOT of stuff you could update
04:54:22Coldtoastnot just make
04:54:36Coldtoastif it ain't broke, don't fix it
04:54:58*Paul_the_Nerd goes back to using an abacus, and leaves the channel.
04:55:05Coldtoastoh well
04:55:18Coldtoastwhy not just install Edgy and get that set up then?
04:55:25Paul_the_NerdNo, but there are updates that I believe result in some sort of warning if you're using an old enough make, or something?
04:56:20scorchePaul_the_Nerd: of amiconn's changes to the makefiles
04:56:33Paul_the_NerdSo, in some sense, it is slightly broke.
04:56:40Paul_the_NerdLike a wobby wheel that'll still get you there.
04:57:39Coldtoastso you worked out how to compile then?
04:58:05Coldtoastgot the album art patch working?
04:58:16Paul_the_NerdWho's that directed at?
04:58:37Coldtoastwasn';t that you yesterday?
04:58:37Paul_the_NerdOdd. I've been compiling a personal build of Rockbox for over a year now.
04:58:49Coldtoastah. ok. must have been somebody else obviously
04:58:55Paul_the_NerdI don't even like album art. :)
04:59:21ColdtoastI like having the album art displayed a lot more than 50 useless (to me) stats
05:00:29Coldtoasthow utterly WEIRD tho that you've been compiling for over a year yet you have no idea how to use apt-get....
05:00:50Paul_the_NerdColdtoast: I started on Cygwin before the VMWare image existed.
05:00:50scorcheyou dont need apt-get to compile
05:01:02Davide-NYCapt-get is telling me that I already have the most updated veriosn
05:01:06scorcheand there are a lot of other distros than debian
05:01:10Paul_the_NerdI downloaded the sources of GCC, binutils, etc, and configured them myself to build crosscompilers.
05:01:19Davide-NYCyet when I run make it tells me to upgrade
05:01:20Coldtoastyou don't... but I'd have thought you'd at least have run across it
05:01:37scorcheDavide-NYC: what tree are you searching on?
05:01:40Paul_the_NerdColdtoast: I've run across it, but I didn't know the package name for make, nor have I ever used it to update/upgrade.
05:01:42Coldtoastwhy not just run in vmware?
05:01:45JdGordonDavide-NYC: its probably because the vmware image is useing stable debian which is almost never updated
05:01:47Davide-NYCscorche: no idea
05:01:52Coldtoastwon't that work?
05:02:08Davide-NYCok, so I should just ignore the update prompts

05:03:52Davide-NYCyou sure it's not just gain settings changing?
05:03:58scorcheDavide-NYC: either change to unstable (should be in there), or just get the sources and compile

05:37:23pagefaultthe codec thing just confused me too much
05:37:25gilkescould someone give me a hand real quick

05:40:52pagefaultI think
05:40:54pagefaultwho knows
05:40:56gilkesbut i think i need to compile tools to get it to work
05:41:00pagefaultit could also be sony processor core

05:41:12pagefaultsince it was sony who made it
05:41:18Paul_the_Nerdgilkes: You can download just the .c file for it directly by the viewcvs script.
05:41:24gilkesi know
05:41:30gilkesi just don;t know how to run it
05:41:36Paul_the_NerdYou have to compile it.
05:41:45gilkesso i figured it would be easier to get the whole directory and run make
05:41:47pagefaultthe SPC is just the CPU part of it
05:41:51pagefaultthere is the S-DSP as well
05:41:54pagefaultwhich the CPU feeds
05:41:58pagefaultthats what makes the noise
05:42:02scorchecvs -z3 co rockbox-devel/tools should work
05:42:02gilkesi opened it in Xcode but i was a bit out of my league
05:42:17Paul_the_Nerdgilkes: I think doing that will actually result in you getting a message telling you to run Make from your build directory
05:42:26gilkesi see
05:42:32*Paul_the_Nerd can't remember for sure
05:42:37gilkesso is it esy too compile a single c file

05:43:05hcspagefault: yeah, I can see the S-SMP on the board, the S-DSP, and the actual D/A converter, just wondering why it's known as the SPC700 when it isn't labeled anything like that...
05:43:30pagefaultwell SPC700 is what it was called in the dev docs
05:43:33Paul_the_NerdJust feed it to gcc and provide it an appropriate name for the output file, I believe.

06:59:15Myipodso,do you know who has the details of 5002?
06:59:29BagderMyipod: PortalPlayer does
06:59:40Bagdernot many others
07:00:16Bagdereverything in ipl and Rockbox have been done without such info
07:00:43BHSPitLappyanyone who knows specifically also likely signed a NDA along with it...
07:02:34Myipodoh,how do the ipodlinux/rockbox's devps get 3g works,including serial port,...but not for 5g?
07:03:08Bagderthey've left that work for you
07:08:53Myipoddoes anyone know,whether the JTAG pins has connected out from the chip? where?
07:08:58BHSPitLappybecause 1-3G's are crude, primitive pieces of electronic circuitry
07:13:22Myipodyou mean,it could be easy to test and debug on 1-3G,but difficult on 5G?
07:15:27BHSPitLappyif somebody could have figured out the 4G+ dock ports by now, it would be done. questioning the fact that it isn't complete doesn't really help anyone, so get over it or solve it yourself
07:15:53Paul_the_NerdBHSPitLappy: Your statement implies that it's impossible.
07:16:03BHSPitLappyPaul_the_Nerd, doesn't it ever :)
07:16:19Paul_the_NerdIt could just be that other things are still more important for most people?
07:16:46BHSPitLappythe statement was really meant to imply that skilled people have indeed tried, and that it's not a matter of needing someone to stimulate progress by complaining
07:17:22BHSPitLappylike "Oh, we never realized this could be USEFUL! Why, here you go! *commit*"
07:17:33BHSPitLappy"Thanks for bringing it to our attention!"
07:17:42Paul_the_NerdWell it's not like the serial port is particularly core to what Rockbox cares about either.
07:18:09BHSPitLappydoes rockbox not care about making a replacement firmware? odd, I've been misled...
07:18:16Paul_the_NerdI said *core*
07:18:24Paul_the_NerdRockbox focuses on music related things first.
07:18:33Paul_the_NerdAnd then things 'in the box' as it were.
07:19:11hcs1) Rock 2) Box
07:19:32BHSPitLappyI think having the firmware able to do the most basic and necessary functions on its own (like that whole, PC connectivity thing?) without depending on eeprom Diskmode, is sort of core in the philosophy
07:19:53Paul_the_NerdBHSPitLappy: That's USB functionality though, different from what is commonly referred to as the serial port.
07:19:53BHSPitLappyright now, it's not justifiably "self-sufficient" on an iPod
07:20:04BHSPitLappywell, I've been lumping the terminology
07:20:15Paul_the_NerdAh, I'd been mentally considering them separate.
07:20:26Paul_the_NerdSerial being that which is used for remotes and other crap. :)
07:20:47BHSPitLappywell, I would think that mastery of one would be associated with the other
07:21:12BHSPitLappyas far as some breakthrough/revelation coming along and helping both functions become realized
07:21:23BHSPitLappythough that might not be the case at all :)
07:21:33Paul_the_NerdWho really knows, 'eh? :)

11:33:20LinusNamiconn: yes, but that is more of a coincidence, isn't it?
11:33:47amiconnJdGordon: That's exactly what I mean
11:34:12amiconnIn case a user tries to load another plugin while a tsr plugin is running, the plugin loader first calls exit_tsr
11:34:13jhMikeShmmm...wouldn't that just lock it the first time if in the wrong bank?
11:34:29LinusNi dunno
11:34:43amiconn_if_ we want a tsr plugin to stop unloading itself, exit_tsr should return a bool
11:35:03amiconnIf that bool is false, exit_tsr would _not_ unload the tsr plugin, and the loader would stop there
11:35:36JdGordonamiconn: yeah i think we are agreeing with eachother.. and im not being clear
11:35:49JdGordonthats exactly whats happening..
11:36:13amiconnSo what does the _plugin_ need to know?
11:36:24jhMikeSamiconn: well, the lock doesn't happen on x5 but on the H120

16:22:09pondlifeI've had an intermittent lockup when leaving recording
16:22:25pondlifeProbably unrelated.
16:23:03jhMikeSThis was happening in just 15sec sometimes but I changed things and ran it for an hour
16:25:32jhMikeSI'm gonna give a big rethink on how things are handled with setting up interrupts for DMA. Masking doesn't follow the datasheet's explicit instructions for instance.
16:27:50pondlifeAny idea roughly how long before you'll be committing this stuff? I won't bother investigating it, am sticking to playback.
16:27:57 Join Myipod [0] (n=vshuguan@
16:30:32jhMikeSI don't know. Was hoping real soon. I need to get some zzzz's first. :P
16:34:01jhMikeSIf you're working playback.c, See FS #5747 re: the PCM playback though iPods didn't seem to suffer it.
16:35:39pondlife5747 is as intended really, it could be better, but it's not really a bug.
16:36:04pondlifeThe whole audio pause is at the wrong place, the PCM buffer should still be usable in paused state
16:36:28pondlifeI can do an easy "fix", but it adds quite a lot of latency to pause, so is not good.
16:36:30jhMikeSIf you skip to a new song while, the one you left should continue to play remaining data?
16:36:49pondlifeYes, with the current structure.
16:36:52jhMikeSwhile paused
16:37:06pondlifeA flush could be added, but that'd just be a bodge
16:37:17pondlifeBetter to make the pause work properly
16:37:20 Quit Sinbios ("If the definition of a klutz is someone who doesn't have eyes on their ass, then yes, I suppose I am a klutz.")
16:37:38jhMikeSnah, just use pcm_play_stop first and the remaining DMA tranfer will be cancelled
16:37:52pondlifeI'm more interested in the bugs where memory gets screwed and things crash.
16:38:19jhMikeSLike when codecs fail? That never recovers quite right.
16:38:51pondlifeOr changing some settings (e.g. crossfade) during playback...
16:39:07pondlifeSeems to work at the time, but odd things happen later, until you reset.
16:39:22jhMikeSI don't even know where in playback.c you explicily know that the user changed tracks.
16:39:55pondlifeAnywhere that track_changed is set. There are too many of those in there too!
16:40:17jhMikeSThat doesn't apply to say shuffled playback?
16:42:20jhMikeSok, dumb question )
16:44:45pondlifeI still think playback.c is over-complicated. ;)
16:44:51jhMikeSyes the PCM buffer should be simply resumed if no skip was done during pause
16:45:10 Quit Blackfish ("( :: NoNameScript 4.03 :: )")
16:45:30jhMikeSme too. needs a really big straightening out IMHO
16:45:46pondlifeThe bigger problem is to make voice work while music is paused.
16:46:04pondlifei.e. let PCM carry on while the audio codec is paused
16:46:51amiconnThe pcm buffer is split into blocks, correct?
16:46:58jhMikeSThat's kind of a low level problem. Would actually require saving the state at pause time and restoring it.
16:47:07amiconnWhat about always pausing on a block boundary?
16:47:50pondlifeI'm not very knowledgeable on the PCM stuff yet... can you explain how that helps?
16:47:51jhMikeSNeed smaller blocks and more callbacks then or it's too coarse.
16:47:59amiconnThis way the problem how to deal with voice during pause would become a lot easier to solve
16:49:11pondlifePause = stop at the end of the current block. But we still need to insert "voice blocks"...
16:49:18jhMikeSYes, a DMA tranfer would always be completed when pause is complete and not left in the middle.
16:49:24amiconnWell, if pcm playback always plays complete blocks, pausing main playback would just stop feeding blocks
16:49:52amiconnpcm playback would go on until all blocks are consumed. New blocks arriving (e.g. voice) would make it start again
16:50:02pondlifeIt should do, but the user gets increased latency - pressing pause would not stop music immediately.
16:50:17pondlifeCurrently it's pretty quick.
16:50:27amiconnWell, if a block is around 0.1 ... 0.2seconds, I doubt it would be noticeable
16:50:41jhMikeSI'm also wondering about some things re: the fact that everythings a line transfer. Are all block a multiple of 16 bytes?
16:51:37pondlifeCurrently we have already buffered quite a few blocks from playback -> PCM. Voice can't be inserted, only appended.
16:52:30pondlifeCurrently, that is!
16:52:39amiconnOf course we need 2 queues
16:53:03 Join matsl [0] (
16:53:26amiconnOr rather, one main queue that can be stopped immediately before the blocks are fed to the dma.
16:53:27jhMikeS DCR0 = DMA_INT | DMA_EEXT | DMA_CS | DMA_AA | DMA_SINC | (3 << 20) | DMA_START; <- 16 bytes transfers, no?
16:53:58amiconnAt that point, the voice blocks would either be mixed in, or transferred straight if main pcm is paused/stopped
16:55:25pondlifeWe do need 2 queues. That also helps with voice responsiveness.
16:56:25amiconnjhMikeS: Nope. Only SSIZE is line, and DSIZE is longword
16:56:42jhMikeSvoice blocks should go through the dsp so the sample rate doesn't have to be switched just to play a voice clip during pause.
16:56:55amiconnCheck how the DMA Auto-Align feature works
16:58:49jhMikeSThe value 3 << 20 is line for both fields

18:08:29lowlightpondlife: I think maybe having a "filling_queued" variable might be necessary so that only one fill buffer request gets queued.
18:09:15pondlifeShouldn't be necessary if we get the rest right.
18:09:35pondlifeI'd rather only add more globals if we can't fix it any other way.
18:09:43lowlighteven if the queue didn't overflow it's silly to waste the time processing a dozen unnecessary requests
18:09:48pondlife(Says he who just put another global in.)
18:10:08pondlifeTrue, but we should see if we can fix it nicely first. Then add that as an optimisation.
18:13:11lowlightSeems like you can either check if the queue is full in queue_post or check if you really need to queue in the first place.
18:13:42lowlightDoes anything else cause queue overflows?

18:15:39pondlifeHmm, the SDL stuff doesn't behave like the target....
18:15:46*lowlight looks in his bag of tricks
18:15:55pondlifepcm_play_stop always cancels PCM pause mode
18:16:22pondlifeThat's not good, and not true on the target.
18:16:39lostlogicpondlife: someone broke something witht he seek_complete callback
18:16:52lostlogicit should never unpause if a manual pause was in place when the seek started, only if it was an automatic pause
18:17:30pondlifeThat's not the problem here
18:17:48pondlifeThis is a sim-only issue. It works fine on H340 target.
18:17:56lostlogicoh, sorry, didn't see those last two lines
18:18:08pondlifeLook at sdl_dma_stop() for a laugh.
18:18:21pondlife SDL_PauseAudio(1);
18:18:21pondlife pcm_paused = false;
18:18:42pondlifeElsewhere we assume that stop doesn't cancel pause.
18:18:58lostlogicas for the queueing stuff −− there's no real cost to processing the extra fill buffers if they are _legit_ fill requests −− ie the buffer really is low and the buffer really should be filling and isn't, the overhead is basically 2-3 levels of return and 2-3 levels of calls to get right back to where it was

19:09:09DeefYou can turn shuffle off, but repeat shuffle on
19:12:30nlsIt's all in the manual
19:12:35Genre9mp3Deef: Again... the manual has all the answers for you
19:12:43Genre9mp3for instance:
19:12:48DeefIt only says shuffle shuffles
19:13:03Deefand repeat shuffle shuffles, then repeats
19:13:13nlsrepeat shuffle Shuffle.
19:13:13nls When the current directory or playlist has finished playing, it will be shuffled and then repeated.
19:13:27DeefI understand what they do
19:13:40DeefI'm questioning the logic in having two shuffles
19:14:01Kasperlelinuxstb_: awesome, thanks
19:14:18Deefshuffle on + repeat on = repeat shuffle, like any other audio player
19:14:39DeefHow is the actual "repeat shuffle" not redundant
19:15:58Genre9mp3Deef: the repeat shuffle's logic is that the first time you have no shuffle but the tracks are re-organised in the list every time you play them again

21:06:12DeefExcept suddenly I've found a playlist sitting in root
21:06:35DeefAnd that points to and plays (in Winamp) all these songs I don't have

21:08:13DeefExcept I don't know how to actually retrieve these music files. Winamp says they're in recycled, windows says Recycled is empty
21:08:29birdfishDeef: even when you connect the h340?
21:08:45DeefYeah, I've only seen them while its been connected
21:08:47Paul_the_NerdDeef: Retrieving them would most likely be illegal anyway, seeing as you don't own them.
21:08:53birdfishThe recycle bin won't show the files that the dap trashed until it's connected

21:09:44DeefIs the recycle bin even visible running the player on its own?
21:09:54Paul_the_Nerdbirdfish: Read his whole statement. He bought the H340, supposed to be wiped, but there was that playlist still on it.
21:10:50birdfishPaul_the_Nerd: oh, gotcha. I thought he was saying that he bought it > transfered music > installed rockbox > accidentally deleted his library (sometimes I read too much into things)
21:10:55Paul_the_NerdHe's trying to recover the music of the previous owner.
21:11:16*birdfish shames Deef
21:11:29Nimdaedeef: it's possible to recover, but doing so may violate the dmca so i'll just leave it at that
21:11:34Paul_the_NerdIf you delete the music in Rockbox, it doesn't go to the recycle bin. If you delete it on your computer, it actually does show up in the recycle bin.

21:14:34Nimdaethe answer has really been pointed out already, just not directly ;)
21:14:53birdfishPaul_the_Nerd: through my experience deleting files from dap's, the files usually display in the recycle bin until the dap is disconnected from the computer (in which case, the recycled files remain on the dap (in a recycle bin of it's own and will only be visible in the computer's recycle bin once the dap is connected again). However, yes, you can delete directly from the dap as well.

21:31:42Paul_the_Nerdbirdfish: Yes, but for 8.99 US you can buy an album in FLAC, and safely transcode it to any bitrate/format you want for any player without worrying about extra artifacts.
21:31:45birdfishI wonder if the RIAA will actually stop allofmp3 this time
21:32:02birdfishPaul_the_Nerd: very true
21:32:07Nimdaeanyway, work beckons me
21:32:16birdfishlates dude. nice chatting with you :)
21:32:19Paul_the_NerdI like FLAC more as an archiving format than a playback format.
21:32:31birdfishno doubt
21:32:45Genre9mp3In some years from now lossy formats will be pointless
21:32:50birdfishI used to play flac through my x5, but along with the space aspect, it took too much processing power to decode
21:32:53*Deef coughs innocently
21:33:28Paul_the_Nerdbirdfish: FLAC takes less power in Rockbox, but still more battery life just because the disk has to spin up more often
21:34:07Genre9mp3How much RAM does the X5 has?
21:34:38 Join [sellout] [0] (
21:34:43birdfishPaul_the_Nerd: are you sure about that? I thought it required more battery life mainly because it took so much power to decode higher levels of compression?
21:34:55birdfishGenre9mp3: not sure. Never looked into it
21:35:04SlasheriPaulJam: currently that's not possibe but i have plans to add more advanced changelog support to keep all old data and also detect if files has been moved/renamed
21:35:07Paul_the_NerdGenre9mp3: 16mb,
21:35:10Genre9mp3I think (not sure) it has 16MB
21:35:18*birdfish would love a dap with a gig of mem. That would be nice
21:35:26Genre9mp3that's explains it... it will keep the hd very busy
21:35:32Paul_the_Nerdbirdfish: On Rockbox, on the coldfire targets FLAC can be decoded without even boosting the CPU up from the slower speed it's at when not during playback.
21:35:39birdfishPerhaps once I graduate with my engineering degree I'll hack up a dap with more mem
21:35:43amiconn16MB is okay even with lossless format

21:36:00amiconnGenre9mp3: On archos the hd spins up often when playing wav...
21:36:00Paul_the_NerdCompared to the about 1.5mb of Buffer you end up with on Archoses. ;)
21:36:17birdfishPaul_the_Nerd: wow :) I'll have to keep that in mind next time i'm torn between spending the extra for flac then :D
21:36:47Genre9mp3the more RAM the better though
21:36:54amiconnNot necessarily
21:37:02amiconnMore ram also consumes more power
21:37:03PaulJamSlasheri: good.
21:37:11Paul_the_Nerdbirdfish: I use FLAC for some of my albums on my H120, without any real problem.
21:37:16amiconnSo the manufacturers need to balance
21:37:17Genre9mp3as much as double hdd spins?
21:37:49amiconnPerhaps not, but from a certain amount of ram, more ram doesn't lead to fewer spinups
21:38:00amiconn...due to user behaviour
21:38:18birdfishPaul_the_Nerd: really, flac should only be required for classical and may electronica (I think). Pop/Rap/Rock have so much static and beats in them that the extra quality wouldn't be very discernible
21:38:20*amiconn wonders why the Nano G2 has 256MB RAM
21:38:25Genre9mp3but it's good to have more when using lossless
21:38:28preglowamiconn: depends on the codec, really
21:38:31amiconnOn the Nano there are no spinups, so it's a waste
21:38:37Paul_the_Nerdamiconn: WHAT?!
21:38:37preglowamiconn: 256 mb ram???????
21:38:50*Paul_the_Nerd was wondering why the G1 had the whole 32.
21:38:52preglowamiconn: sure you're not confusing that with the 256kb sram?
21:38:52birdfishamiconn: that's because the nano is flash...
21:38:54amiconnWas mentioned here a while ago...
21:39:03 Quit z0de (Connection timed out)
21:39:08birdfishamiconn: it's basically just a bit bit of memory
21:39:12amiconn(while == weeks)
21:39:15birdfishbit = big
21:39:15Genre9mp3birdfish: the opposite actually
21:39:22Learor 256 mbit...
21:39:31birdfishGenre9mp3: how so?
21:39:56Genre9mp3birdfish: since it's flash it doesn't need much RAM
21:39:57birdfishGenre9mp3: it's not access in the same way. But there are no moving parts.
21:40:05amiconnOther swcodec (!) flash players have even less memory than the old archoses - thinking of the iFP7xx ...
21:40:07birdfishGenre9mp3: that's what I just said
21:40:17Genre9mp3ah... sorry misunderstood then
21:41:04*linuxstb_ thought the 2nd gen Nano had 256 Mbit of RAM...
21:41:18Paul_the_NerdMBit would make more sence
21:41:27*Lear too
21:41:28Genre9mp3I believe that 32MB are reasonable for mp3 and generally lossy formats while 64MB would be neat for lossless playback
21:41:48Genre9mp3I think that X5's 16MB is a bit small
21:42:07*linuxstb_ blames the IPL wiki for the misinformation...
21:42:36 Quit perpleXa ("Lost terminal")
21:42:53birdfishGenre9mp3: I would agree. The X5 even feels sluggish sometimes. ESPECIALLY when higher quality formats are being accessed
21:43:17amiconnThat has nothing to do with the amount of ram
21:44:27Genre9mp3A typical 4min flac file is about 25MB
21:45:11birdfishamiconn: everything has to be loaded into ram. Therefore, is the track is currently being accessed, one will certain see a delay as the information from the track database is loaded into the ram
21:45:22linuxstb_This is the (32MB, 256Mbit) SDRAM inside the 2nd gen nano:

21:46:46yipehey everybody ت
21:46:52amiconnFewer ram just means more frequent (but shorter) rebuffering during playback
21:47:30birdfishamiconn: how so. If more ram is available, more information can be accessed at once (correct?)
21:49:03Paul_the_Nerdbirdfish: RAM is used almost entirely as audio buffer in Rockbox. What information are you referring to?
21:49:35amiconnlinuxstb: Ah, yes, so the ipodlinux wiki is misleading...

21:51:38birdfishPaul_the_Nerd: perhaps I'm not thinking about the issue correctly. I was just considering that if information from the music database needed to be accessed, it would be loaded into ram. And if there was more ram, the information from the database could possible stay loaded into ram and be accessed much faster than needed to be wait until it finds a chance to enter the memory buffer before being accessed.

21:54:09Genre9mp3Anyway.. as amiconn stated it really depends on the user habits... if someones skips tracks frequently it's better to have small RAM while if someone prefers to listen to whole albums, a bigger RAM would be better for battery life
21:54:30 Join linuxstb_ [0] (i=5343d4aa@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
21:55:07birdfishHm... So now I'm wondering why (even with tag caching enabled) browsing the music database is sluggish while playing high quality files?
21:55:25linuxstb_amiconn: The misinformation probably came from this arstechnica article: - it actually discusses the 8-fold memory increase, whilst linking to that Samsung webpage...
21:55:40Paul_the_Nerdbirdfish: Because the CPU is busy, and only has so much time to share between Decoding and Drawing the menus?
21:55:42Genre9mp3birdfish: maybe you mean dircache?
21:56:09Paul_the_NerdIf decoding wants 80% of the pie, and the menuing system wants 30%, you're gonna hafta compromise. :-P
21:56:20birdfishPaul_the_Nerd: good point
21:56:24amiconnlinuxstb: Yes, found that as well.
21:56:26Paul_the_NerdNot that those numbers are in any way accurate

21:57:59amiconnThere are multiple mistakes in that ars technica article....
21:58:11amiconn...and the Nano 1st gen and 2nd gen use the exact same RAM chip
21:59:19birdfishBeing a playlist oriented firmware, does rockbox perform better when playing tracks through a playlist rather than the menuing system?
21:59:24amiconnFlash eprom size is stated wrong too (also in ipl wiki)
21:59:29*birdfish notes the cutdown on needed to search through the menu
21:59:34amiconnIt's 8Mbit, not 8MB

22:10:27birdfishI wasn't sure if having playlist loaded allows rockbox to know the location of the file ahead of time so it was ready to begin playing upon completion of the previous song (faster than persay without the playlist). That was all I was really asking.
22:10:33birdfishThanks though :)
22:10:50Paul_the_NerdRockbox buffers several songs at once.
22:11:22Paul_the_NerdRemember it's gapless... there is no space between the end of one set of audio data and the beginning of the next (from a 'what you hear' perspective) other than artificial spaces insert by encoders or format restrictions

22:19:22birdfishif rockbox chooses to go that direction, wifi will be awesome
22:19:34birdfishIt could be used for so many useful tasks
22:19:51petursure, as if writing a wifi driver is *that* easy...
22:20:04markunlet's get a usb stack first..

22:21:16markunyes, nice ip stack
22:21:20birdfishAnyhow, by the time anyone gets around to porting rockbox to the zune, I will probably be in my graduate courses (so I might be the one developing the driver) ;)
22:21:36Paul_the_NerdMy requirements of any DAP silly enough to have Wifi: Support for web radio. That's it.
22:22:09birdfishIt'd be nice to be able to download some tracks on the go from various web services
