00:00:17Davide-NYCdoes anyone know what this person is talking about?
00:01:54jhMikeSno...haven't read it :D
00:03:54Davide-NYCsomething about the pitch not being correct on normal playback and the user playing back everything at 105% pitch
00:04:05Davide-NYCafter a while his H1x0 crashes
00:05:49*Davide-NYC accepts the silence to mean user error or unique hardware fault

00:08:35*Davide-NYC presumes user error
00:08:42Davide-NYCwe should ignore unless other complain
00:09:08Davide-NYCjhMikeS: do you understand my "hide behind" idea?

00:09:43Davide-NYCI htink it's great since I don;t see the great benefit of knowing the filename and the filesize.
00:09:56 Part tucoz
00:09:59jhMikeSThere's lots of space left on the H120 screen though...lots
00:10:42Davide-NYCyeah, but folks like ot stay consistent across targets as much as possible
00:11:16SoapThat forum post complaining about pitch being off is from 2006-11-03. I swear I read the same exact question a week or two ago.
00:11:22SoapMaybe it was in here.
00:12:01*jhMikeS wonders why someone would want to listen to music almost 1/2 step higher than normal :-\
00:12:11Davide-NYCcrystal meth
00:12:54SoapMakes me wonder if they had the EQ cranked up in OF, and now when they hear something in RockBox it sounds too low pitch.
00:13:05jhMikeSThe hiding could really more of a pages thing that could be scrolled through with lots of details
00:13:11SoapIt wouldn't be hard to measure a 5% difference in playback times.
00:13:44Davide-NYClet's tackle one thing at a time (i only have 5 min left)
00:13:53jhMikeSmy ears do the measuring, I don't wanna hear the key of F if the song is in E +P
00:14:39Davide-NYCfor optical power, why not just use the playback setting for output?
00:14:54Davide-NYCwhat's the gripe? (bit confused)

00:15:33Davide-NYCso it's gonna be another setting in the menu?
00:15:47jhMikeSNot if noone wants it
00:15:58jhMikeSOr not enough
00:16:10Davide-NYCI don't think it's expicitely necessary
00:16:20Davide-NYCwhat about a redundant menu entry?
00:16:41Davide-NYCoptical out (same as in the general menu) repeated in the rec menu?
00:17:08Davide-NYCaccess to the same setting from two diff places so that you don;t have to exit out of "recording mode"
00:17:09jhMikeSThat's still another menu item even if it's the same string
00:17:26Davide-NYCI know, but there's less logic to thik about
00:17:39Davide-NYCjust turn it on or turn it off
00:17:42*jhMikeS asks if less logic is more logical
00:18:13Davide-NYCI'm old school so I still think if big ass switches, channel strips and potentiometers
00:18:21Davide-NYCI gotta run

01:26:29JdGordonso the rest of the system thinks its shutdown already?

01:30:25amiconnI have some dedicated .cfg files for different environments, but those only contain the settings I really need to change
01:30:29jhMikeSok...but sometimes I want to back up with new settings and use them later and keep using the same file. If it crashes, they won't be saved.
01:30:57amiconnThey will be saved at the next spinup after leaving the menu
01:31:27jhMikeSNot to my .cfg file
01:31:52amiconnNot yet to a config file... but that'll change.
01:31:53jhMikeSI've lost them many times after crashing
01:32:20amiconnI never lost settings except on a new target when I forgot to create my backup .cfg
01:32:21jhMikeSStill would like a config for different enviroments if I do choose

01:37:16amiconnBut lcd-h100.c contains both target specific and pixel format specific code
01:37:36amiconnThe latter should go in firmware/drivers/lcd-2bit-vert.c
01:38:05jhMikeSwas thinking same thing really in that case. that's np. What about for the remote?
01:38:26amiconnSame thing
01:38:51amiconnlcd-recorder.c too (not yet moved)
01:42:27jhMikeSshouldn't lcd.S be moved to sh too while we're at it?

01:42:50 Quit rasher ("leaving")
01:43:28amiconnlcd.S needs a somewhat ugly split
01:43:59amiconnOne part of the code is for the player, the other part is for all 5 bitmap archos targets
01:44:45amiconnThe latter should probably go into firmware/target/sh/archos directly
01:45:20amiconn...but what filename?
01:45:22jhMikeSall of it since there's only one selection?
01:45:45JdGordonlcd-archos.S ?

01:46:57amiconnThe differnce does in fact have nothing to do with charcell vs. bitmap, but which port pins the lcd is hooked up to
01:47:08amiconn(the interface itself is the same)
01:47:11jhMikeSor just plunk it all the way down in player for charcell
01:47:58jhMikeSFrom your statement, being 6 archos targets, 5 of which are bitmap, the remaing is one target with charcells
01:48:07amiconnThe bitmap lcd's data line is hooked to bit 0 of port B, which allows a special trick for speedup
01:48:19amiconn[01:46:09] <amiconn> And lcd-player.S for the other part, in the player sub-dir ?
01:48:47 Join Rob2222 [0] (
01:49:02amiconnYes there are 6 archos targets, but only 4 target sub-dirs (2 dirs are shared by 2 actual targets each, because those are really similar)
01:49:21jhMikeSbut one is charcell and the other not?
01:49:35jhMikeSoy, que feo
01:50:39amiconnThe charcell and bitmap code in lcd.S share small parts
01:50:46jhMikeSI guess then one uses the specific lcd-player.S, the rest use the common part in the archos dir.
01:50:56amiconnI would like to see it completely separated
01:51:07jhMikeSyes, but they're not going to change much so just duplicate it, no?
01:51:18jhMikeSIt's very minor
01:51:42amiconnSome instructions are unnecessary in the player version when they are separated
01:52:05jhMikeSmmm...even better, smaller fw
01:53:58*amiconn spots i2c-pp5002.c and i2c-pp5020.c in firmware/drivers...
01:54:26jhMikeSwhich explains why I'd rather move stuff for a player I have
01:54:39jhMikeSas much as possible anyway
01:55:27amiconnI think I will move the archos lcd stuff

02:04:50Nico_Pthe order of the different codecs has changed
02:05:34Nico_Pbecause of that, iCatcher doesn't display the right codec icon anymore
02:05:50jhMikeSwhowa, it's not supposed to depend on that anymore
02:06:26Nico_Papparently it does, and i think your commit about recording is the cause
02:06:29jhMikeSanything indexed to audio formats (or many other things) should use spefied initializers
02:06:51jhMikeSNico_P: No doubt about it...will have a look
02:07:04Nico_Pi think i found exactly what causes it
02:07:47Nico_PAIFF moved from being after SHN to being after MP3
02:08:05jhMikeSall audio info is in one array now
02:08:19jhMikeSshould fix I catcher, not move the order of the formats
02:08:36Nico_Pyes maybe that's best
02:08:50linuxstbDoesn't it mean that all WPSs using %fc as a conditional are broken?
02:08:51Nico_Pi can edit the wiki page for wps tags
02:09:07jhMikeSchanging the order the array is defined won't change the order. you'd have to just change the AMFT enum
02:09:35Nico_PjhMikeS: where is it ?
02:09:50jhMikeShmmm...gotta find which files assume afmt indexes
02:10:29 Join Paul_the_Nerd [0] (
02:10:42jhMikeSIts in id3.h but I'd rather do the right thing and fix the arrays that assume a certain format is at a certain index
02:11:42jhMikeSwhich file would that be in, I'm forgetting
02:12:01amiconnThe enum is changed... and you can't "fix the array"
02:12:19amiconnIt's not C code that's affected
02:12:57jhMikeSit's actually the .wps file?
02:13:29amiconnThe wps file defines a multi-level conditional (think of it as a kind of switch() )
02:13:43amiconn...and that just uses the index into the afmt array
02:13:49Nico_Pwell all i know is that now it's no longer "%?fc<mp1|mp2|mp3|wav|vorbis|flac|mpc|a52|wavpack|alac|aac|shorten|aiff|unknown>"
02:14:13amiconnSo if the array is shuffled around, all wps'es using %fc need fixing
02:14:15jhMikeSdefinitely not
02:14:38Nico_Pbut rather "%?fc<mp1|mp2|mp3|__ (AIFF?)|wav|vorbis|flac|mpc|a52|wavpack|alac|aac|shorten|aiff|unknown>"
02:14:58jhMikeSit just uses the string at that index then
02:16:32jhMikeSNico_P: yeah, that or the enum can be changed to the old order
02:17:05Nico_Pit's probably better to go back to the old order so that WPSs don't get broken
02:17:24*amiconn isn't sure where to insert the lcd-*.S files in firmware/SOURCES :/
02:18:03amiconnIt's clearly SH, but then it's also archos specific... but the bitmap code not only for a single target....

02:31:56JdGordonamiconn: isnt putting the ata callbacks in system_flush worse than the ata thread? because it will be called from whatever the first thread to get the SYS event, which could very easily stkOv that thread.. and async callbacks are still useless because the owner thread would get the SYS event before the callback event

02:33:43linuxstbxmixahlx: Just the pages you've found - the IriverRuntime (and IpodRuntime etc) pages, plus the CodecPerformanceComparison.
02:34:52Soapxmixahlx: what codecs would you even consider using in an attempt to save battery life?
02:35:30homieloweis there a specific directory I have to put a formatted text file in for dictionary to execute it, or do I just enter the file name ie"en-ge.txt" and execute?
02:35:42xmixahlxwell, i know that vorbis is cpu intensive to decode, and i thought that there might be benchmarks already
02:36:01xmixahlxi have probably 95% musepack (for lossy)
02:36:47Soapmy ipod runtime tests showed very little battery life difference between OGG and MP3, I know the arch. is completely different on the Irivers, but...
02:38:41Soapxmixahlx: - but looking at the codec performance comparison wiki it appears very safe to say that the only difference between mp3 and mpc on the iriver will be how often the drive is hit (bitrate)
02:39:39Soapso if your personal ABX tests show musepac requires less bits than mp3 for you to find it acceptable/transparent, then you should go with that (in the name of battery life)
02:39:49linuxstbxmixahlx: A quick test is to start a file playing, wait for the buffering to finish, then go into the main menu, Info -> Debug -> View Audio Thread and look at the CPU boost %. The lower that number, the faster the decoder.
02:40:13xmixahlxah, ok - that makes sense
02:40:35Soapif I'm reading the wiki right there is no boost on iriver when playing mp3 or musepack.
02:40:46 Quit homielowe ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
02:41:33rotatorThat's right, even playing my Musepack q10 files do not boost on my iriver
02:42:07xmixahlxthat's sounding great for me :)
02:42:24rotatorMy collection is almost entirely Musepack as well ;)
02:42:39xmixahlxi just purchased an h320 last week, rockbox'ed it (the norbu compile) and am just doing some research
02:43:04Soapnot, as a qualifier, what those tests do not show is that musepack 192+fancy WPS might equal boost whereas mp3 192+fancy WPS might not. (or vise versa)
02:43:46Paul_the_NerdWhich is why we need a decoding benchmark plugin. :-P
02:44:02Soapspeaking of which.
02:44:05xmixahlxthat's just odd that there isn't one
02:44:17xmixahlxor even that the devs don't know how efficient the decoders are
02:44:20SoapIt is not nice for people to tease others with mention of Rockbox tshirts.
02:44:52Paul_the_Nerdxmixahlx: They vary greatly from target to target though. I mean, different people optimize them, so it's not like any one person knows how much work has been done on any given one for any given architecture.
02:45:29Paul_the_NerdSoap: I look good in it too. I get better service at restaurants even, as if the shirt somehow gives me an air of having a "respectable" job.
02:45:38xmixahlxbut aren't the h1x0 and h3x0 targets the same (for audio decoding purposes)?

02:51:51*amiconn had an idea how to speed up text drawing on the colour targets
02:52:01*Paul_the_Nerd likes it when amiconn has ideas.
02:52:13JdGordonamiconn: did you see my message about 15min ago?
02:53:04jhMikeSamiconn: what'd you come up with?
02:55:21amiconnjhMikeS: Well, mono bitmap drawing can be optimized best when the mono bitmap is large.
02:55:46amiconnHowever, text consists of a whole bunch of really small bitmp
02:56:39***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
02:56:45amiconnSo it will probably be faster to first assemble the individual mono bitmaps into one large mono bitmap, and then convert-and-draw
02:57:07amiconnOne could call it mono bitmap cache
02:57:36amiconnAseemble a whole line of text there, then convert at once
02:57:43jhMikeScould be. had given that some thought myself. wasn't in the mood to try it out. guess you only need a bitmap as wide as the screen.
02:58:04amiconnYes, a mono bitmap the size of the screen
02:58:32amiconn2.5KB on X5, and ~4.8KB on H300
02:58:33jhMikeSIn this case the vertical format is an advantage
02:58:51amiconnNo shifting while assembling th eline

03:00:08JdGordonso, do we just srcap it and make sure owner threads look after them properly?

03:00:51JdGordonwell.. if the codec threads gets it whlie running then it should be fairly easy to overflow.. it sits at 97% on my h300

03:01:22JdGordonwoops, yeah, max is 97%

08:08:18scorcheat what stage was it before it was stalled?
08:08:42amiconnIt gets in the way of the target tree move and the port is dead for more than a year
08:09:27amiconnIirc the core booted. No audio, and I don't know which other features didn't work yet
08:10:06amiconnThe code probably won't even compile anymore
08:10:20scorcheyeah...i doubt that as well

08:11:36scorchei would vote for removal as well, but i hate throwing out code
08:12:23scorchepossibly a hosted zip with the files and load onto the wiki?
08:12:57amiconnWe already removed code for a target in the past (the Neo)
08:13:30amiconnAlthough less code was removed because the Neo is also SH based
08:14:23amiconn...and OpenNeo is a fork of rockbox, so the code isn't really lost
08:14:26*JdGordon has no problems with dumping the gmini code
08:14:55amiconnBesides, the code isn't lost if we remove it. It will stay forever in the cvs history
08:15:36scorchewhat about when we eventually swith over to svn? =P
08:15:55JdGordondoesnt the history go across also?
08:16:22scorchethat is why i was asking...i dont know
08:18:09amiconnIf we do it, the gmini code removal should be a separate commit, clearly marked as that
08:18:44JdGordonwe could move it to TT in its current state and not worry about weather it compiles or not.. its fairly trivial, unless its mixed in with alot of other code?
08:19:58amiconnGmini code is mixed into a lot of files. ata.c, system.c and lcd-recorder.c are the ones that come to mind first
08:20:46amiconnjhMikeS: Will you do the lcd-h100.c split?

08:48:50JdGordonapps/codec/wma folder
08:48:59BlackHoleOfCodeTried that one, but same problem
08:49:07BlackHoleOfCodeI also tried adding it to the apps/codecs/Makefile
08:49:56BlackHoleOfCodeI turned off SILENT mode so I can see the parameters passed to each command. Make doesn't get anything outside of the -C, OBJDIR=, and OUTPUT= commands.
08:51:44amiconnTurning off SILENT is very simple. Just use 'make V=1'

08:53:16BlackHoleOfCodeYeah, I did that
08:53:20JdGordonalso make clean
08:53:25JdGordonfor some reason makes a difference
08:53:40BlackHoleOfCodeWell, every time I make clean, when I try to configure again, it says it can't locate the source root
08:53:54BlackHoleOfCodeWhen I tell it where it is, it jumps to my home folder instead.
08:55:22BlackHoleOfCodeI'm not entirely sure what make clean is bashing, but it seems like it causes some important files to go missing.
08:55:32amiconnAnother reason might be that you have missing source files

18:07:18My_Sici have just compiled a rockbox and it don't want to work
18:07:42yperIs it a common problem that a iPod nano freezes when charged with a wall charger and not via USB ?
18:07:50My_Sici have "Aucun fichier" ("no file" or womethings like that in english) message at startup
18:08:20My_Sicwhat they mean ?
18:08:28My_Sici have files on my ipod
18:08:58rasherDo you have the .rockbox directory?
18:12:22My_Sicyper: mine ipod (5G) don't freeze
18:13:50My_Sicrasher: have you an idea where does this fail come from ?
18:13:59Paul_the_Nerdyper: I have a Nano, and have no problems charging it from wall chargers, or any source.
18:14:16rasherMy_Sic: No, I don't know. It'd be nice if you could give the error in English
18:15:22yperHmm okok. Paul_the_Nerd what version do you have ?
18:16:14My_Sicrasher: "No files"
18:16:21Paul_the_Nerdyper: Version of what? Ipod Nano, Apple software, Rockbox, Wall Charger, or what?
18:16:42Paul_the_NerdMy_Sic: Is that a translation of the error message, or is that the error message when you set Rockbox to English?
18:16:46ypernano and sofware
18:17:01yperapple software
18:17:03rasherMy_Sic: that simply means that there are no visible files in the current directory
18:17:12Paul_the_Nerdyper: Well, since Rockbox only runs on the 1st gen Nano, I'm sure that should be obvious. And I'm running Apple Firmware 1.2 right now.
18:18:05My_Sici can see tha in my ipod because i can"t change the lang (rockbox don't works). "no files" messages is taken from english.lng if i can change the language it will be the error message
18:18:10rasherTry entering the menu and setting "General > File Browser > View files" to all
18:18:19yperPaul_the_Nerd: ahh sorry for my poor knowledge.. ok the nano i got does have the version 1.1 Frimware and latest Rockbox on it.

18:18:34My_Sicthe ipod is freezing
18:18:46My_Sicand the harddisk is running
18:18:46Paul_the_NerdMy_Sic: Have you tried clearing the settings while booting?
18:19:10Paul_the_NerdAnd that apparently didn't work, since you got non-English error messages, right?
18:19:12Paul_the_NerdSo try again?
18:19:18My_Sici have just dell all my .rockbox dir and restore it
18:19:25Paul_the_NerdThat doesn't clear setings

18:19:38Paul_the_NerdThe settings are stored in a special sector on the disk.
18:20:21rasherMy_Sic: Try turning on the ipod, and immediately turn on hold
18:20:26rasherthat should reset your settings
18:20:43rasherYou should also reinstall Rockbox if you've deleted the Rockbox files

18:26:09My_Sicanybody knows anithing ?
18:26:28Paul_the_NerdThe data is stored in a sector that is outside the partition (sector 61 I think?) so that it is preserved and cannot easily be accidentally overwritten.

18:26:41rasherYeah, there's not much else to say
18:26:55rasherI think it's 63 on most harddisks
18:26:58My_Sicso i think i find why don't works
18:27:04rasherBut that hardly matters.
18:27:14Paul_the_Nerdrasher: It's like... beginning of partition - 2, or something
18:27:17My_Sicdidn't work* (because is working now)
18:28:35My_Sicso we can change "struct user_settings" without deletting config
18:29:40WalterEgoIs programming a very simple (text only) plugin for RB very difficult? ie, is it a bit like writing console app. or is it much more low level where you need to control every single thing like pixels or cpu boosting..?
18:29:46rasherRather the opposite. Changing user_settings means that the current config on people's harddisks are no longer compatible
18:29:59rasherWalterEgo: it can be fairly simple
18:30:09My_Sicyes it's what i want to say
18:30:17My_Sic(sorry my english is not good)
18:31:21Paul_the_NerdWalterEgo: It's mostly just learning the API offered to you, you can get away without really knowing any low-level stuff at all
18:31:55rasherThe graphviz plugin for twiki is pretty fun
18:32:30WalterEgorasher - I tried having a look at the plugin.h file, there's are a great many functions there... Say I want to make myself (not that I'm an egoist, but it'd be pretty poorly programmed anyway) a flatfile db for bus schedule from many parts around town, you see any api functions I *really* should know about before I go and build something up from the helloworld applet..? :p
18:32:37Paul_the_Nerdrasher: Actually, that could be kinda handy for finding lost or duplicate functioning pages easily, no?
18:33:18rasherPaul_the_Nerd: It's for creating in-page graphs, I don't know if you can graph pages, but that'd be pretty neat
18:33:51rasherPaul_the_Nerd: example:
18:33:55odb|fidel_rasher: thx again i forgot the .rockbox folder hehe
18:33:59yperPaul_the_Nerd: hmm it does not seem to be working :(
18:34:35Paul_the_Nerdyper: Which method are you trying, and what is happening?
18:34:51rasherodb|fidel_: no probem
18:35:20Paul_the_Nerdrasher: Yeah, I got that too, my brain just immediately skipped to "you could spider through the links and output something in a compatible format" though it'd probably be horribly complex looking.

18:54:52yipehi rockboxers, any tips on fixing an ipod that has been totally screwed up by my own stupidity, from within linux (meaning no itunes or other apple fixers)
18:55:31Paul_the_NerdDepends on how screwed up "totally" is, as well as whether you have access to another identical iPod, or are willing to use Wine.
18:56:17Paul_the_NerdOh, and possibly what sort of iPod it is.
18:56:52yipewine is okay if I have to
18:57:09***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
18:57:19Paul_the_NerdWhat about the first question, what's actually wrong with it?
18:58:26yipeit's an ipod video, and the problem is that the second partition (the FAT one) is totally borked, fsck.vfat -a won't fix it, and I also seem to have at some point erased the original firmware, as the bootloader can't load either rockbox nor the apple os
18:59:48Paul_the_NerdDid you keep your Rockboot.bin, or at the *very* least your bootpartition.bin as instructed?
19:00:40yipeI think so
19:01:26yipein trying to reinstall rockbox, as per the instructions for linux, I might have..... extracted and then remixed rockbox with whatever junk is on that first partition :(
19:02:02*Paul_the_Nerd sighs.
19:02:16Paul_the_NerdJust try to run the restore tool in Wine.
19:02:52Paul_the_NerdAs long as you had a clean bootpartition.bin, there were other ways, but that's really the easiest, and I've heard it works.
19:02:57Paul_the_NerdI personally don't know if it does.
19:03:10yipeit doesn't work with wine, it opens and immediately crashes
19:03:27*Paul_the_Nerd shrugs.
19:03:42yipeand I'm really unfamiliar with wine, so I don't know if there's a way to make it work or not
19:04:00yipeugh, I'll just wait and fix it at school on a win-box...
19:04:17Paul_the_NerdThis is why we tell you to keep the bootpartition.bin.
19:04:22Paul_the_NerdI'm somewhat surprised you chose to overwrite it.
19:04:47yipeI wasn't thinking, I was just following the instructions on the linux install page
19:05:02yipeas soon as I did it I realised I had screwed up
19:05:49Paul_the_NerdWell your best bet is honestly the windows machine.
19:05:58yipethat's what I thought
19:06:18Paul_the_NerdThe other solution is reformatting your iPod, getting a bootpartition.bin from someone who owns another video, getting an MBR from our wiki, and putting everything back together manually.
19:09:25yipethat would be nice if only I knew someone else with an ipod-video

19:52:37markunSo strange that they don't support Play For Sure..
19:52:54rasherIs it certain that they don't? Last I heard the wording was a bit strange
19:53:35Paul_the_NerdThey don't
19:53:39amiconnmarkun: The gigabeat CPU has 4K iram only?
19:53:39Paul_the_NerdMicrosoft has even declared this
19:54:16Paul_the_NerdIn a statement they said very clearly that Zune is separate and unrelated to the Plays For Sure initiative and does not support it
19:54:48rasherIs this the story that was linked on slashdot a couple of days ago? Because that seemed very strange and cloudy to me
19:54:49markunamiconn: yes, but 2x 16K of cache
19:56:21markunamiconn: 16K instruction, 16K data
19:57:03amiconnI wonder what the iram will be good for, as the cache is larger than that
19:57:17amiconnThe SH1 also has 4K iram, but no cache at all
19:57:23Paul_the_Nerdrasher: Actually, I can't remember where I found it, but it was an interview with a Microsoft representative. I'm doubtful it was Slashdot though that I found it through.
19:58:01rasherPaul_the_Nerd: I think the issue (with that story at least) was it was not sure whether they meant Zune-the-player or Zune-the-musicstore
19:58:15markunamiconn: the manual suggests to use the iram during booting
20:00:32markunamiconn: "STEPPINGSTONE (4K-BYTE SRAM)" "The NAND Flash controller uses Steppingstone as the buffer on booting and also you can use this area for another purpose."

20:03:36Paul_the_NerdIt was a PM
20:03:44rasherHowever, I don't see how even Microsoft would be that stupid
20:03:46Paul_the_NerdRegarding the discussion of how Rockbox supposedly causes CRC errors.
20:04:10Paul_the_Nerdrasher: The Zune is pretty much an accessory for the XBox 360. Microsoft just hasn't really been clear on that.
20:04:42Paul_the_NerdThey're rolling out the ability to purchase/rent Movies and TV shows via their XBox Live service, and they're already saying things like "Well, if people really want to watch them on their Zune, we are consumer driven"
20:04:49rasherBut still, I really don't see a reason why they'd let it NOT play PFS songs
20:04:58Paul_the_NerdLock people into their services.
20:05:32rasherBut it'd just make the Zune less appealing

20:07:50Paul_the_NerdThey could just make the PFS songs unshareable.
20:08:51Paul_the_NerdI think WiFi syncing, and Web Radio support at hotspots are both more in-demand features than "Share a song someone can listen to 3 times" anyway.

20:48:23amiconnThe optimisation works because text is usually a buch of tiny bitmaps which will be combined.

21:29:29SoulDeaDswitching the states of pixels you mean, right?
21:29:51jhMikeSSoulDead: A plugin that switches the screen white to black and back. Set the speed so it goes fully from one to the other.
21:30:22SoulDeaDok, but how do you get the time when the switch is done?
21:30:40jhMikeSIf you get that and measure and different temps plot it and then curve fit it
21:31:05jhMikeSSouldDead: The plugin should give you the rate being used

21:40:15SoulDeaDit the RC oscilator is not so precise?
21:40:42jhMikeSSoulDead: Wouldn't assume that. You'd need calibration runs perhaps knowing the temperature rather precisely

22:04:16jhMikeSah, then sounds good to me
22:04:18amiconnIt's been like that since the introduction of swcodec
22:04:38amiconn(archos uses iram in the core only)
22:05:21jhMikeSSo we're actually using 0x20000 - 0xc000 for the code now?
22:05:24amiconnIt's basically a 3-line change (1 line in and 2 lines in
22:05:37amiconnYes, 0x14000
22:05:58jhMikeShow much actually gets used atm?
22:06:49amiconncore: 0xaea4
22:07:03jhMikeSlot of slop room there
22:08:33amiconnmpc.codec uses more: 0xb7a0 - very close to the current limit
22:09:29jhMikeSwavpack_enc.codec used a lot. most of it for the buffer to convert 16->32 bit sign extended
22:09:32amiconnEven more in aac.codec
22:09:58amiconnHehe, perhaps aac would become realtime with some extra iram on X5...

22:43:47diluted^i have it charging now, or so it says
22:43:57SoulDeaDit?s slower because orckbox is unable to request max usb power supply of 500 mA
22:44:15SoulDeaDit charges only on 100 mA
22:44:19diluted^well but 12 hours should still leave me with a full battery
22:44:29SoulDeaDif you want to charge fast reboot into original firmware
22:44:34preglowjhMikeS: having dealt as extensively with recording as you have, i suspect you have some understanding of what functions are needed ;)
22:45:01Paul_the_Nerddiluted^: What evidence do you have that 12 hours charging in Rockbox should? On some iPods Rockbox uses more power than the iPod is receiving from USB, if you're charging inside of Rockbox.
22:45:53SoulDeaDdiluted^ what?s you ipod
22:46:09diluted^60gb video
22:46:12SoulDeaDi have ipod nano and it charges to max for about 6 hours
22:46:24SoulDeaDahm, bigger battery i guess
22:46:54SoulDeaDapple specify for the nano 1 hour for 80% charge and 3 for 100% i think
22:47:07SoulDeaDwith rockbox it comes near to double time
22:47:26diluted^okay, the original firmware is loaded
22:47:36SoulDeaDyes, try it
22:48:15SoulDeaDthe usb hardware is not known, so when you charge in rockbox, it starts the original firmware rescue mode

22:50:25barrywardellor at least some of it
22:50:53SoulDeaDdiluted^ it depends, did rockbox rebooted in disk mode or not
22:51:34SoulDeaDif you prevent if from booting in disk mode by pressing menu while plugging cable, it?s really possible to power rockbox instead of the battery
