00:05:26barrywardellmidgey34: hmm. just tried a build there
00:05:55barrywardellit looks like it could be similar to a problem i encountered before
00:06:18barrywardellwhere ld on osx doesn't like making an empty file
00:07:47barrywardellit happend before when building bitmaps
00:08:09barrywardellwhen it tried to build bitmap dirs with no bitmaps in them it gave an error
00:08:25barrywardellthat's why there are osx.dummy.bmp files in some of the bitmap dirs now
00:08:56midgey34yah, i understood that
00:09:47barrywardelli'm not sure if it's the same problem here, but it's a possibliity

04:51:37jhMikeSyes except the 60gig with is the same size as the x5l (2-platter drive)
04:51:38Soapwouldn't running two batteries take a circuit to keep battery 1 from trying to charge battery 2 (or vise versa)? Even batteries picked for matched discharge cycles at birth tend to drift apart with age.
04:52:18jhMikeSyoud need a couple diodes at the least
04:54:09SoapTrue, a diode solution would work for the discharge part of the equation, how about for charging two batteries at onece?
04:54:54jhMikeSreverse the diode circuit
04:56:06Soapso the question I'm getting to in a round-about manner is: Is there reason to believe the X5 also has the (simple) circuitry to properly use two battery packs?

04:58:57hacksawSoap: that could be possible, because the way it looks the batteries might be in series connecting to the same point on the circuit board
04:59:29Soapoh, I didn't expect them to connect like that, hmm.
05:00:28hacksawim taking photos of this
05:01:36hacksawif u wanna take a look
05:04:55jhMikeSseeing as the battery bench I was given for an x5l ended abruptly at just a hair above 3.3V I doubt there's a diode involved or two batteries in series because they would have to discharge to around half that each and charging wouldn't work very well.
05:05:25Nimdaeif it's in series, it would produce double the voltage, i would expect it to be a parallel circuit if it is 2 batteries coupled
05:05:53Nimdaeat least, that's my understanding

05:06:56jhMikeSBut then the battery bench would end at 3.6V+ even with schottkey diodes which have low forward drop. that drop would also waste a lot of power at such low voltages

05:10:44jhMikeSthe pcf50606 does the regulation. looking at the pcf datasheet it has support for a rechargeable backup battery that can be charged off the main battery

05:12:17thePianoManBHSPitLappy, yes, but not with my MP3 player
05:12:22zejhMikeS: :p
05:13:13BHSPitLappythePianoMan, but are you on OSX?
05:13:15jhMikeSNimdae: and that comment appeals to my macabre sense of humor :)
05:13:20zeactually, doesn't battery, as in assault, imply a series of assaults? :p
05:13:32thePianoManBHSPitLappy, yep... 10.4.8 i think
05:13:56Nimdaein any case, if it can charge a secondary battery from the primary, it sounds like something like a passive ups
05:14:01jhMikeSI've never heard of anyone charged with pun
05:14:09 Part hcs
05:14:31Nimdaea combination of two or more cells electrically connected to work together to produce electric energy.
05:14:59Nimdaethe act of beating or battering.
05:15:16Nimdaeit seems we are each right in our definitions ;)
05:15:17ze"to beat with successive blows"

05:16:10Nimdaea park at the S end of Manhattan, in New York City.
05:16:31jhMikeSmmmmmm...batter....goes well with successive blows
05:16:36zemy point was just that since a battery's just multiple cells (in series generally afaik) anyway, it doesn't seem so strange to have 2 batteries in series
05:16:42zejhMikeS: hah :p
05:16:52zeso long as the voltage works out right one way or another
05:17:13Nimdaeputting together batteries/cells in series increases the voltage by the number in each cell
05:17:22 Join [sellout] [0] (
05:17:24Nimdaeso if you put 3 1.2v cells together, you get 3.6v
05:17:41zei think thats kindof the point to batteries vs single cells anyway
05:17:53Nimdaeif you want to add multiple batteries to a device to power it in a manner of extending power on time, you wouldn't want to do this
05:18:11Nimdaealso, the sensitive electronics may not be able to handle it
05:18:16zewell, you'd be more inclined to avoid it if you can
05:18:27Nimdaeadding 2 3.6v batteries in series would result in 7.2v of power
05:18:50Nimdaehowever, if you connect them in parallel, you maintain an average voltage between the batteries
05:18:50zeso are they 3.6v?
05:19:02zein the x5l
05:19:09Nimdaei dunno
05:19:15Nimdaei'm just using numbers that were mentioned :P
05:19:22zecould it be possible that they somehow got pairs of 1.8v's?
05:19:46zeas non-standard as that apparently would be...
05:19:49Nimdaei would imagine if one device has one battery, and another has two, then they would be connected in parallel
05:20:40zeNimdae: yeah, but then you get all those charging/discharging issues that were brought up
05:23:08Nimdaei wouldn't imagine a charge/discharge issue would occur
05:23:30Nimdaethe flow of electricity should affect one or the other pack
05:23:52Nimdaeif anything, you would just need a more powerful charger to get decent charge times
05:24:50zewell thats beyond my knowledge
05:25:04zemy sad knowledge of electricity tends to be concerned more with AC
05:25:21hacksawthe charger puts out 5v 2A
05:25:24zewhich is effectively something else entirely
05:25:27Nimdaei read up about this stuff a while back trying to understand a device i had that took 4 AA batteries, but not all entirely in a series
05:26:05Nimdaeit was 2 pair of AAs in series, then those arrays in parallel
05:26:17 Quit |AhIoRoS| ("Abandonando, see you")
05:26:25Nimdaeso while it was 4 AA batteries, it was only 3v
05:26:26zeso it wanted 3v but longer life
05:26:34Nimdae3v but higher amperage
05:26:39zeor that
05:26:57Nimdaei guess the higher amperage is easier to regulate than the higher voltage
05:27:38zei dunno how to lower voltage in DC
05:27:59zebut i guess resisters raise it while lowering amps, right?
05:28:19Nimdaeresistors resist, they don't raise anything
05:28:37zedoesn't voltage go up with resistance?
05:28:50Nimdaenot that i know of, but that kinda goes beyond my knowledge
05:28:55zei could be wrong
05:29:11zeso i guess lets stop talking about things beyond our knowledge :p
05:29:52Nimdaeas far as i know, the only way to change voltage is through transformers, voltage regulators, or splitting/merging circuits
05:30:08zeok so whats a 'voltage regulator'?
05:30:27Nimdaei think it's a fancy transistor
05:30:38Nimdaei honestly don't know
05:30:41zejust PWM?
05:30:48hacksawze: if resistance goes up current goes down
05:31:13Nimdaecurrent would be amperage, right?
05:31:32Nimdaei haven't had to remember this since high school :S
05:32:14Nimdaethat's what i figured
05:32:19hacksawhaha i know what u mean
05:33:01hacksawthis all started because i'm trying to make a charging circuit for the car
05:33:25zehacksaw: but so the voltage doesn't change when that happens?
05:33:39Nimdaeit shouldn't
05:33:44zemaybe thats a mistaken impression i got from the volts+amps/watts conversion equations
05:33:44Nimdaeas far as i know, heh
05:34:17hacksawwell ohms law E=I x R
05:34:33hacksawso thats assuming the voltage is the same
05:34:35jhMikeSP = EI, P = I^2 x R
05:34:39Nimdaei want to take my broken fm transmitter and attach an audio cable to it to connect to my car stereo's line in
05:35:06jhMikeSif it's broken why? what'll it do?
05:35:17Nimdaeit still charges
05:35:21Nimdaeit just doesn't transmit anymore
05:35:34hacksawthats my goal as well to use line out straight into the amp
05:36:00Nimdaesince the audio circuit is easily accessible in the transmitter package, i figured i could attach a line out cable to it
05:36:18jhMikeSI'd look for switchmode regulators that can take an external power MOSFET or some such
05:37:08*Nimdae stares blankly at jhMikeS
05:37:17jhMikeScould get free samples from Maxim from their website
05:37:21zeswitchmode regulation is the same as pulse width modulation, right?
05:37:35jhMikeSor National Semiconductor.
05:37:49jhMikeSze: There's PWM and PFM. Some chips have both
05:37:57zewhats the F
05:38:07thePianoManswitch mode reg is based on PWM i think
05:38:11hacksawi got a pop, see u later
05:38:21hacksawpop out, oh bi
05:38:33 Part hacksaw ("Ex-Chat")
05:39:08zei've got an op-amp and an lm78 (iirc) from national that i still haven't done anything with :p
05:39:12jhMikeSso some use pulse frequency modulation, PWM or both
05:39:13Nimdaei wanna take one of the many slots in my car and turn it into an ipod dock
05:39:40zejhMikeS: that kind of regulation feels so dirty and kludgey to me
05:39:45jhMikeS5v ready made switcher chips are easy to get
05:40:19Nimdaei wonder if i could turn the tape deck into an ipod slot
05:40:20zehow does throwing too much voltage for a short time equate to being less voltage?
05:40:21jhMikeSze: quite common really
05:40:23*Nimdae contemplates
05:40:27zei mean they say it "averages" but how does it really?
05:41:01jhMikeSIt's filtered by a low pass circuit, ie. a capacitor
05:41:05Nimdaebe kinda interesting to be able to just slide the ipod into a slot and go
05:42:00Nimdaeactually, i kinda thought about taking an old ipod, taking it out of the enclosure, and embedding it into my dash
05:42:42Nimdaeor better yet, in my stearing wheel
05:42:50zei guess there's car stereos that have the dock connector on them and act like a remote to control the ipod through the stereo's own interface
05:42:59Nimdaehave a rockboxed stearing wheel
05:43:07zeso you can just stick the ipod out of the way somewhere and not screw with it while its plugged in
05:43:25Nimdaeyeah, but unfortunately rockbox doesn't support the apple accessory protocol yet
05:43:49Nimdaefound that out the hard way, heh
05:44:07Nimdaei was all "wtf, my remote doesn't work, stupid thing is broken"
05:44:08goffaheh.. i just went ghetto and got a deck with aux in... and use a car carger
05:44:30Nimdaeyeah, i'm gonna end up going that route
05:44:37zei dunno anything about the ones that feature it either
05:44:47Nimdaei just wanna hack my old fm transmitter so i have just one cable
05:44:54zeout of the whole wall full of car stereos at best buy there were all of 2 or 3 with ipod connectors
05:45:00zethey could be junk anyway for all i know
05:45:09 Join Paul_the_Nerd [0] (
05:45:20zeNimdae: how would that be 1 cable if you add another cable to it?
05:45:34Nimdaei would be essentially splicing them together
05:45:44zesplicing them?
05:45:45Nimdaeso one cable going into the ipod
05:46:02zewhere's the power cable plug in at?
05:46:03Nimdaeyeah, the audio cable would be connected to the audio connections on the fm transmitter rather than to the ipod itself
05:46:14Nimdaethe fm transmitter is the power cable
05:46:34zeyeah but it plugs into something other than the ipod, right? to actually draw power from...
05:46:43zelike the "cigarette lighter"
05:46:46Nimdaecig lighter
05:47:17Nimdaei could probably even rig that up to be more hidden too :P
05:47:18zepretty soon they'll just start calling them power sockets
05:47:20Nimdaebut why bother
05:47:22goffaonly thing i don't like with the cig lighter charger is that there is noise when i use it in conjunction with the aux in
05:47:32zeand then some power sockets'll come with a cigarette lighter accessory
05:47:37goffasince i have 2 players.. i charge one and use the other on aux in
05:47:45goffapita.. but it works
05:47:53Nimdaeze: actually, my car didn't come with the actually lighter part
05:47:58zegoffa: weird
05:48:02zeNimdae: yeah, i'm not surprised
05:48:04Nimdaei don't smoke, so no ashtrays or lighter
05:48:47goffaits that way on my x5 and my h140
05:49:14zegoffa: i didn't think DC systems had issues like that
05:49:29zelike AC stuff gets ground loops and that sorta junk
05:49:34goffaprobably just shitty adapters
05:49:36goffai dunno
05:49:38zeor noise in the power and stuff
05:49:43Nimdaei'd say shitty adapters
05:50:04goffai had 2 of cowon's and they both do it
05:50:05Nimdaecould also be bad shielding on the radio
05:50:08jhMikeScig lighter chargers are often switchmode. could be a bad frequency for the app.
05:50:11zewell i guess if its got a voltage regulator without good shielding
05:50:17zeor yeah bad frequency
05:50:56 Nick myzar|away is now known as myzar (

05:51:11zei always wondered why until i found out that dimmers are usually switchmode
05:51:18jhMikeSdimmers as in light dimmers?
05:51:23zejhMikeS: yeah
05:52:05jhMikeSthey chop the sinewave off till the voltage gets high enough then conduct the rest of the ac cycle

06:43:25WalterEgoThere's one thing I don't really understand about coding C for rockbox.. Does rockbox use a very small subset of c (that's what I currently believe) or rather it overloads a few important functions and the rest of the regular functions are accessible..? Say, are time() and strftime() useable or do I need to dig in the source for an equivalent (or confirmation that it doesn't exist)...?
06:43:41WalterEgoI'm asking just so I know what kind of learning experience I'm getting into.. :p
06:43:47lostlogicWalterEgo: rockbox is in C.
06:43:51lostlogicWalterEgo: it does _not_ have a full stdlib
06:43:56lostlogicwhich is what many people consider to be 'C'
06:44:18WalterEgoahhh... Like unknowledgeable me did, up to a moment ago..
06:44:22thegeekit does not use many of the libraries often associated with C though, right?
06:45:43WalterEgookay, so fulltext searches into the source will be my new hobby.. That and browsing my french-english dict. so I know what words to actually search for.
06:45:58WalterEgoThanks, at least I have a better idea of the direction I'm going :)
06:45:59lostlogicC itself doesn't _do_ much, the stdlib provided by glibc does all kinds of stuff, and the subset of those things that glibc does that are practical / useful / have been needed in rockbox are implemented in rockbox as well.
06:47:02lostlogicWalterEgo: better than a full text search would be to use ctags or an IDE that will simply tell you what functions are available and what parameters they take based on the source, without you having to manually search each time.
06:48:58WalterEgoMakes sense.
06:50:36WalterEgoI guess best IDE I'll find in a full debian or whatever install rather than some cygwin or such...? Installation seems easier for cygwin or vmware (there are plenty of tutorials on the wiki) than on linux though..
06:51:04lostlogicWalterEgo: do you already run linux somewhere?
06:51:07WalterEgo..but once that is done, I guess it would make for a more comfortable dev. environment..
06:51:30WalterEgoI already did.. But for php/web dev, not real programming.
06:51:42WalterEgoLost my install when my hd crashed..
06:51:55WalterEgoMiss it ever since but been a bit lazy :p
06:52:22lostlogic*nod* you can actually use a windows IDE to develop code that you will compile from vmware or cygwin, not sure exactly how to set it up though, because I've not used windows in many a moon.
06:52:46lostlogic(nor an IDE)
06:53:22WalterEgolol... I see. I guess when you get comfortable with the code, anything even vi could be adequate... well, maybe NOT vi. :p

06:55:26thegeekI only work on my own code so I tend to know it pretty well;P
06:55:29lostlogicahh is taking it's sweet time to start again
06:55:52WalterEgocool, I'll have a look at that. As long as I get syntax coloring and some (can't remember the word.. alignement with tabs) anyway, I'm comfortable. Well I was for coding simple php..
06:55:53lostlogicjhMikeS: hopefully it'll catch my warning fixes in the same build then
06:56:03WalterEgoI do need some sort of IDE so search through functions though, that's true.
06:56:28lostlogicWalterEgo: vim with ctags provides that, but the learning curve is probably too high _just yet_ ;)
06:56:46WalterEgoheh... I'll put it on the back burner. :)
06:57:10lostlogicanother C IDE that I have used in the past in linux is anjuta −− seemed pretty decent, but a bit unpolished, but it did have coloring, code completion and all of the necessary features.

12:50:11Bagderperhaps, but don't count on it

12:50:25bluetthen i've looked at the x5
12:50:43bluetbut it has the headphone thingy on the side
12:51:08bluetthat could be annoying with a jack/minijack adaptor
12:51:13KohlrabiOne thing I would reconsider is the amount of HD-space
12:51:19KohlrabiI rarely need the 20GB

13:55:44peturthe question is, do we only mention major changes the user can see, or also internal changes that go unnoticed (except when they contained bugs ;) )
13:55:58Bagderthe oct 25 X5 change is missing
13:56:13rasherpetur: My vote is for the former
13:56:14BagderI'll add
13:56:41peturrasher: me too, as the internals are known to most devs
13:58:05bluebrotherBagder, how about some "changes in the last 4 weeks" or similar?
13:58:32Bagderyou mean instead, or in addition to this?
13:58:56Bagderit is dead simple to do
13:59:06bluebrothernot sure ... one idea would be to have "changes since 1st <month>" and crosslink them
13:59:28bluebrotheror additionally to have a like 4 weeks windows with all changes made in that time.
13:59:34Bagderok, I'll make a third page and then we can see how they "feel"
13:59:51bluebrotheror, perhaps, have a "window" page, a monthly page and a "all" page ;-)
14:00:38bluebrothergreat. since25 got quite long (and long to load too)

16:53:07PaulPositionWhere can I find Rockbox Coding guidelines (best practice..)? Right now I'm just toying around and learning some (acutally, lots) stuff, but if I sometime get serious about it I'll need some guides.. For example, should a plugin be built only with calls to the plugin api? If I needed to read time, should I just include the files I need or (that'd be stupid I think) hard copy them into my code?
16:53:41PaulPosition(note, last question is just example, don't go explaining it all..)
16:54:28rasherThere is a guidelines page in the wiki I believe, a search should find it
16:54:44rasherBut it says nothing about stuff like that
16:54:54PaulPositionrasher - oops. :p
16:55:09rasherPlugins only have what the plugin api (and plugin lib) gives them, basically
16:57:20PaulPositionMaybe I'm stupid (well, yes I am).. I don't know much about C yet.. Are files included in, say ABC.h de facto included in XYZ.h if the latter includes ABC ?

17:25:37SoulDeaDyou followed the instructions in the manual
17:25:53Hunnybunnyyes, everything worked until i connected to my pc

17:57:17Gnelik#define good "like iPodLinux" :)
17:57:55PaulPositionBecause it's not cattering to only one platform but more than 12 of them, some monochrome, others not so...

18:19:15PaulJamSlasheri: i have two questions concerning tagcache: 1. is it a known problem that when using the random folder function, after the change to another folder the rating and playcount of the first track is not available in the wps? (i havent tried this yet with an unmodified build)
18:20:03Slasherihmm, interesting.. i haven't used that feature yet but it sounds like a problem with the playback engine
18:21:58Slasheriat least that doesn't seem to occur when just "normally" playing files
18:22:02PaulJamand 2. in my tagnavi_custom.config i have used the format string '"%s [%s] %s" artist album title' but the results are sorted by title (i expected them to be sorted by artist). does the sorting only work for title and numeric values?
18:22:52Slasheridoes that format string work in otherwise ok?
18:23:50Slasheriyou need to make sure directory buffer size is large enough to hold all files on the player
18:23:55Slasheriotherwise sorting cannot be done
18:24:31PaulJamoh, that could be the problem.

19:20:44preglowlostlogic: so, any caveats about the new scheduler boost thing?
19:21:39lostlogicpreglow: not really −− any thread may boost, and when that thread sleeps, (if no other thread was boosted) the scheduler unboosts the CPU
19:26:32lostlogicI guess the caveat is what counts as a sleep −− a timed block or a sleep is a sleep. a forever block _is not_ so a thread can wait on IO or similar blocking operations without a timeout but keep boosted.
19:31:00preglowis that intentional? sounds pretty stupid
19:37:52obois it possible to stop the hard drive from spinning up in the ipod bootloader, before ata_init() is called?
19:38:38preglowobo: anything more happened with the piezo patch?
19:39:21obono - I don't know what to do with it... it sounds pretty awful without using the timer - ticks just aren't short enough
19:40:13lostlogicpreglow: yes, intentional −− indefinite waits can be something like a read(), in which case you don't want to be toggling the boost on each side of the read or anything dumb like that
19:40:46lostlogicpreglow: any wait which may never return should be timed, and would thereby de-boost
19:41:04Paul_the_Nerdobo: Since the iPod Bootloader is a file loaded from disk, doesn't the disk *have* to spin up just to load the bootloader?
19:41:34Slasheriobo: hmm, maybe the second core can be used to generate piezo sounds, for example?
19:41:40oboPaul_the_Nerd: yes, your right, of course... doh!

23:05:42goffai know.. but when you have a $350 pair of phones you don't exactly want a spliced-together piece of shit
23:05:46*Genre9mp3 agrees with rasher
23:06:26rashergoffa: True, but if that's the only option (ie. Shure won't fix them), it's not the end of the world
23:06:59goffayeah.. i know

23:11:03rasherThis is great. $9,000 for speaker cable? Apparently, these cables measure well in 'articulation response', and balance the 'holy trinity' of electrical properties. For $9,000, I would certainly expect my cables to 'measure well', even in ways which no-one has heard of before. I'm not even sure I'd pay that kind of money for the holy trinity. All three of 'em. In one room.
23:11:04goffawish i had the link.. i saw a site that was selling "true audiophile gear" wooden knobs were like $10,000
23:11:55bluetI was skeptical just like you, but now I can hear all my sound haze free. I'm especially impressed with the porcelain isolator technology and the non-conductive glaze. I'll never let my cable touch the floor again, I had no idea how much sound the floor can absorb.

23:23:07amiconnI don't think we need further help from the disassembly
23:23:20peturamiconn: it's that last thing I wonder about
23:23:59amiconnDisassembly is helpful for finding out low level stuff, but not for complex stuff like an usb stack
23:24:08peturthat Philips guy that's helping me a bit said it's not normal to connect ID to the microcontroller
23:24:50peturyou'd expect usb pin 4 (ID) is monitored. if not by isp1362, then maybe it's connected to a GPIO?
23:25:12peturwhich would explain why a device is detected immediately
23:25:34amiconnFor example, I found that chip select detail (setting SWE in the ide control regs) without the disassembly, but thorugh reading of the coldfire datasheet
