00:35:47afruff23for resoldering, they would just need to unplug the battery, strip the wire a little, reheat the solder, put the wire in the solder, and wait for it to cool?

01:39:03Soap(you didn't /really/ expect a chorus of "Rockbox's interface sucks!" did you?)
01:39:20bknis there any info on how many users are using the archos vs. the ipod vs. other players?
01:39:53bknnot really, i know that rockbox runs on a lot of devices so perhaps the interface works better on other devices than the iPod.
01:40:29Soapthe interface is the same on most all the targets, the difference is mostly one of keymaps.
01:40:39SoapWhat don't you like about it?
01:40:41bknthough i was thinking that it would be cool to have a way of custumising the interface somehow.
01:41:14Soapwhat part of the interface?
01:41:35Soapmenu placement / structure?
01:41:43bknon the iPod the 'menu' button seems to toggle from the Settings view to the FileSystem view. I just found the unintuitive.
01:41:44Soapor do you want more eye-candy?
01:42:18n1szomg! the menu button enters the menu, on noes ;-)
01:42:27Soapyes, Menu takes you in and out of the menu.
01:42:33bknno, not more eye-candy. I'm not a huge eye-candy guy. I think the Themes work fantastic for those that want eye-candy,
01:42:42midgeybkn: tapping menu on ipod should load the menu, you seem to have loaded the quickscreen
01:42:48bknahhh, okay, i see what you guys mean.
01:42:56Soapesp, on the ipods, the number of buttons (or lack thereof) is a hinderance.
01:43:11Mouser_XA lot happened today (it was backed up further than usual). Would anyone please be kind enough to give me some of the higlights? (Reading the logs is very time consuming...)
01:43:18Mouser_XIt'd be appreciated...

01:44:50Mouser_XSoap: Thanks. That was a very, very, breif rundown. I'm impressed.
01:44:56Soapbkn: no, in this case I don't think the hinderance is the number of targets, I think the problem is lack of unique buttons on the ipods.

03:00:03Brunellus_lappyLlorean, files run fine in native iriver firmware
03:00:15LloreanAnd this is conclusive evidence of what, exactly?
03:00:18SoapI haven't finished reading yet - but I'll need to modify the makefiles or something to ensure ccache is run, eh?
03:00:24LloreanYou already said that they only *sometimes* have problems in Rockbox.
03:00:45LloreanWhich means it's perfectly reasonable to believe that by sheer chance, you just haven't stumbled across them having problems in the retail firmware yet.
03:01:01Brunellus_lappyLlorean, sorry. bad phrasing. they *Never* play in rockbox. they *always* play in the firmware
03:01:03Brunellus_lappy(stock firmware)
03:01:20LloreanAnd you're playing them in filetree mode in Rockbox?
03:01:25Brunellus_lappyLlorean, yes.
03:01:38Brunellus_lappyrockbox simply reports "no file!"
03:01:44LloreanAnd just clicking on them with Navi gets that?
03:01:52Brunellus_lappyLlorean, correct.
03:01:59LloreanIs it all .oggs you have, or just some?
03:02:06Brunellus_lappyjust some.

03:02:43Brunellus_lappypixelma, no.
03:02:46Brunellus_lappyI did rip them with grip
03:02:52terinjokesam i the only one that has playback mergers using rockbox?
03:03:08Brunellus_lappyanyway. I have to go. back in a bit.
03:03:18LloreanBrunellus_lappy: GRIP is known to be iffy for Ogg/Vorbis.
03:03:21LloreanHave they ever worked?
03:03:34terinjokesie when playing one song, it suddenly stops, plays a part of another song, then (sometimes) returns to the original song (annoying!)

03:05:44Brunellus_lappyLlorean, man. iffy? with ogg vorbis

03:06:08Brunellus_lappywhat's the iffyness with ogg vorbis?
03:06:27LloreanBrunellus_lappy: I'm saying that grip has been known to produce invalid ogg/vorbis files, specifically it has used ID3 tags on them, and that Rockbox won't accept them.
03:06:28terinjokesand it doesn't happen with every song, just every once in a while
03:06:40Lloreanterinjokes: Is there any consistency?
03:07:00Brunellus_lappyLlorean, would retagging the files with EasyTag be a way to fix it?
03:07:10LloreanBrunellus_lappy: If it's the tags, possibly.
03:07:13terinjokesit only jumps when I'm singing (IDK, it happens rather randomly)
03:07:16LloreanBrunellus_lappy: You can check that.
03:07:25SoapIf you are having inconsitant problems with vorbis files, checking for the presence of ID3 tags is where you should start.

03:08:16Brunellus_lappyor would I have strip all ID3 tags, and how would I go about doing that?
03:08:39Lloreanterinjokes: And you're using a build without any patches at all? What settings have you changed? Do any of them seem to affect it?
03:09:01Soapand HydrogenAudio recomends the use of aoTuVb4.51 or newer for encoding vorbis, regardless.
03:09:12Brunellus_lappyanyway, thanks guys. I'll have to have a look at my tagging.
03:09:15LloreanSoap: Isn't grip just a front end anyway?
03:09:19sneakumsi use a program called id3v2 to strip id3 tags. people keep putting them on flacs for some reason.
03:09:21*Llorean has never used it.
03:09:24Brunellus_lappyand/or encoding. the only problem is that I hate soundjuicer.

How do I get out of it, or alternatively what is a safe time to disconnect the player form the charger without doing any damage?"
03:27:19Lloreanlachlan: Sorry, somehow I read right past it last time.
03:27:24LloreanI'm slightly out of it tonight.
03:27:38Soapreally? I've come to the conclusion the only reason those wiki encodes were faster than mine was they were VBR. If I compared average bitrates at the _end_ of the movie, I could match their speed everytime.
03:27:38Lloreanlachlan: Any point is safe to unplug it.
03:27:54lachlanOk, thanks
03:28:28LloreanSoap: As a note, my bitrates are very low already, as I'm encoding a low quality TV encode at Nano resolution, and I think the bitrates I tried were 320 and 160
03:28:44LloreanSince I wasn't too concerned with video quality, I just wanted output filesize to fit a certain goal
03:30:33SoapI'm sure there is a point of diminished returns where video bitrate plays such a small part going lower won't help, but I was playing with 250-750 bitrates on 224x128 encodes.
03:31:08 Quit softi_42 (Connection timed out)
03:31:51Soapand I quite convinced the reason those "wiki" encodes were appearing to beat everything I could produce was simply because I was sampling FPS numbers too early on, before all the high-motion scenes.
03:32:33SoapReally disapointing, in a way. I was hopeful there was a "magic" set of encoder tweaks I could do to gain some speed improvements.

04:34:48firecrotc1Okay, I think I know what's wrong... I'm using /dev/sda2 (as that is what the device shows up as in Linux)
04:34:56firecrotc1−−scan gives me /dev/sda
04:35:11firecrotc1So I should be using /dev/sda in the commands rather than /dev/sda2?
04:35:35Llorean /sda2 is a specific partition on the device.

05:31:54DownStrikbecause my gigabeat f10 its giving me "no system on hdd"
05:32:19DownStrikand the only firmware that i fin its the JP but its says cand update...
05:33:55hotwire_something is wrong with the latest build on the gigabeat... it gets as far as "rockbox loaded" and then the screen is essentially unresponsive... although buttons do appear to respond, as does music.

05:36:18combrainsapaently it was causing problems so they took it out of SVN again
05:37:13DownStrikanyone have the gb system folder for us version
05:38:00combrainsDownStrik, you can d/l it form toshiba
05:38:13DownStrikthey only have the JP and AU
05:38:13combrainsthen put rockbox over the top
05:38:20combrainsthen get AU
05:38:35DownStrikit dont let me.
05:38:51DownStrikbecause the page its like 1kb dowload.... its very slow
05:39:18combrainsyou should be able to get the setup file for it
05:39:55combrainsDownStrik, Why do you want the folder for the US firmware if you have RB?
05:40:06DownStrikbelieve i try ....for hours looking
05:41:02combrainsall the defult firmwares are the same except that they are protected for different reigons (for some strange reason)

05:41:58DownStrikit boot .. and i only can see its gbsystem and rockbox in the top
05:41:58DownStrikthats it
05:42:34combrainsthats because you have nothing else on the HDD
05:42:57combrainsits a filebrowser - not an mp3 library
05:43:29DownStrikohh i see... i am trying everything... thats why i also whant to see the original firmware
05:43:58DownStrikyour program is great what i see on the page.. but i want to see the original
05:44:05combrainsif you put a folder with some music on the player, it will show up in the filebrowser and then you can play it
05:44:31combrainsthe original is easier to use in some respects but that is about it
05:44:31DownStrikyes that what i see like a linux system
05:44:48DownStrikthats what i heard...
05:44:52combrainsits playback quality is not that graet compared to RB
05:45:33DownStrikbut there will be other people here using the gB and they are not computer friendly... and i see with the rb i can use both...
05:45:39DownStrikthats why i am into
05:46:34DownStrikwhere you think i can find the GBSYTEM folder
05:46:37hotwire_combrains: i noticed that on the front page too... I guess they just missed finishing undoing it
05:46:57combrainsas far as Im aware, the gb port of rockbox doesnt support duel booting yet
05:47:07combrainsbut you can RESTORE the original firmware while running rb
05:47:21DownStrikohhh thats what i see i think it was a dual booting

10:26:03hcsoh, I figure I should ask while people are around, is there no APE support because no one has cared enough or for some other reason?
10:26:10JdGordonLinusN: i dont know when you last checked it, but the main thing is its ram usage is user configurable now so its bearable for those that dont want it
10:26:32sneakumswell, feel free to try. but experience seems to show that as soon as a community grows beyond a certain size, it's hopeless.
10:26:40Mikachuhcs: probably because ape is a redundant proprietary slow format
10:26:45bluebrotherJdGordon: will it be expandable for e.g. subtracks in sid files?
10:26:46sneakumsnot that i'm defeatist or anything.

10:31:03Mikachunow just port phoneME to rockbox
10:31:58linuxstbIgnore me, it looks like it's just a wrapper to the C++ code.... In which case I'm not sure how it can be GPL'd.

10:32:30*linuxstb downloads the code to see exactly what it is...
10:32:35Mikachuyou can redistribute code as gpl that links to proprietary stuff as long as you don't distribute binaries
10:32:35Bagderpeople are very often license ignorant, on purpose or not
10:32:52Mikachuespecially when you're the copyright holder
10:33:03LinusNspeaking of reading instructions, i can't understand this flood of wiki user subscriptions, when so few actually intend to contribute
10:33:21Bagderthat's indeed a mystery
10:33:56linuxstbNo, it is indeed a real decoder, not a wrapper.
10:34:51linuxstbI'm surprised no-one has converted it to C++, given the original decoder's odd licensing.
10:35:05LinusNbecause few people care about APE?
10:35:11Bagderperhaps it is a sign of not many people caring...
10:35:24linuxstbI think it's the WMA of lossless codecs...
10:35:26hcsI find lossless rips in APE more often than FLAC...
10:36:00LinusNmaybe it's the RAR of lossless codecs?
10:36:11linuxstbThat's a better analogy.
10:36:31Mikachuisn't rar entirely closed though?
10:36:34Mikachuexcept for the decoder
10:36:53Mikachuor is that the case with mac too?
10:37:01Mikachuand by mac i mean ape
10:37:23linuxstbNo, the source is available for APE, just under an odd license the author made up himself.
10:39:50Mikachuhaha, the linux port hosted on sourceforge is listed as lgpl there, and COPYING in the tarball has this text
10:39:56MikachuI faked the LGPL license in order to make it hosted at SourceForge, I am very sorry for this to other Free Software developers. We all hope that the original author will change the license to some standard open source licenses.
10:40:24*linuxstb remembers that
10:40:42Bagderbut really, that's rather shameless
10:42:08hcsLinusN: ok, tested and building with everything that's currently building error-free on
10:42:13linuxstbAnd from what people have said, APE is very CPU intensive to decode, so there's no real motivation for a Rockbox port.

11:33:50LinusNi'm going through the various options in my head, and at the moment i'm leaning towards changing the sector size in the rest of the code
11:34:05amiconnJust pass NULL - lcd_getstringsize() won't write to NULL
11:34:23barrywardellamiconn: thanks. i'll do that
11:34:26linuxstbThe bootloader always uses sysfont afaik - we don't want to start loading other fonts...
11:35:28Bagderlinuxstb: yeah, but there's a possibility that we change the sysfont for some targets in the future
11:35:29GodEaterWebis that the quickest to implement, or simply the tidiest way of doing it that doesn't involved lots of #ifdef when building for an 80G (or other platform we stumble across this issue for) ?
11:35:47LinusNheight = font_get(FONT_SYSFIXED)->height;
11:36:18LinusNGodEaterWeb: that's what i am trying to find out :-)
11:36:30GodEaterWebhahaha - fair enough
11:37:02LinusNmy thinking is this: increasing the (logical) sector size will probably increase performance in many cases, at the cost of increased RAM usage
11:37:19LinusNbut we have plenty of RAM on those platforms
11:37:47linuxstbBagder: Do we have a SYSFONT_HEIGHT #define?
11:37:49GodEaterWebbut if you increase the size across the code, won't it affect ALL platforms?
11:37:52LinusNas long as the smaller platforms won't suffer, i think it could be the better option
11:38:24Bagderlinuxstb: it certainly would make sense to have one
11:38:24LinusNif i do this correctly, the smaller platforms won't be affected
11:38:36JdGordonamiconn: did you see my message about the settings patch a while ago?
11:38:59LinusNBagder, linuxstb: where would that #define be?
11:39:04GodEaterWebthat sounds like more #ifdef per platform to me
11:39:14LinusNGodEaterWeb: not necessarily
11:39:21Mikachuyou can define a constant and use that...
11:39:45Mikachuwhich i almost dare say you should have done in the first place :)
11:39:57LinusNwe would use MAX_SECTOR_SIZE instead of SECTOR_SIZE in a few places, or a similar approach
11:40:13GodEaterWebah ok
11:40:19Mikachuso if you already have a define, what's the problem?
11:40:30linuxstbLinusN: A "sysfont.h" file generated by the build system?
11:40:59LinusNMikachu: SECTOR_SIZE is used all over the place, even where we really mean 512
11:41:24safetydanamiconn, do you mean something like this?
11:41:26GodEaterWebfor instance in the definition of the identify_info block
11:41:30barrywardellLinusN, linuxstb : or just in font.h?
11:41:34GodEaterWebwhich isn't really a sector at all
11:41:37LinusNlike the IDENTIFY_DEVICE command, which returns 512 bytes regardless of the disk geometry
11:41:54*GodEaterWeb finds himself echoing again
11:42:07Mikachuso the work is the same as if all places had said 512, you still have to look at each one...
11:42:14linuxstbbarrywardell: IIUC, sysfont.c is generated by the build system from rockbox_default.bdf. So I think it should created automatically from rockbox_default.bdf - similar to the bmp build system.
11:42:19LinusNbarrywardell: we are planning to use different default font sizes on different platforms
11:42:35LinusNMikachu: yes
11:42:44Mikachuokay, carry on :)

12:13:12amiconnI think that needs to be ondio*:
12:13:35safetydanamiconn, oddly enough just ondio seems to work

12:14:31JdGordonexcept just using the lang.c file would be better
12:14:43Mikachuin sub parsetarget{} just add a check that the string is somewhere in the binary

12:16:20BagderI doubt very many people mix .lng files with other rockbox versions

12:20:24Mikachuif the strings come from genlang in the first place, it probably won't work
12:21:15linuxstbMikachu: Why did you enable multiple partitions?
12:21:54Mikachubecause i created a second partition (third technically) because i felt unsafe extending the main fat partition into where the ipod firmware writes its hibernation image if you leave it alone for long enough
12:22:10linuxstbAh, so you've kept the Apple firmware?
12:22:22Mikachuyeah, the emergency transfer is painfully slow on my nano

12:44:48linuxstbwebguest99: The "LCD driver" is in two parts - the code that draws into the LCD framebuffer, and the code that updates the physical LCD with the contents of the framebuffer. The first part runs on the sim (so bugs there will show), but the second part is replaced by SDL code in the sim.
12:45:10linuxstbBut I think the gigabeat is a special case (if that's your target), as it uses DMA for drawing in the framebuffer...

13:46:14Nico_Pwow short patch indeed
13:46:52Nico_PJdGordon: at first i tried to give it another attribute (one i created for cuesheets), but i had to make lots of changes in the code
13:47:05Nico_Pso i decided to stick with the MPA one
13:47:26Nico_Pbut i thought i would be able to choose the icon independantly of the attribute...
13:47:35JdGordonif we stick with mpa, then it has to have the audio icon, and it (and its .mp3) will both be added during a regular folder playlist
13:47:40LinusNi'm not sure i like the MATCH macro
13:48:09LinusN1) it hides code for no reason
13:48:22barrywardellamiconn: does that new convbdf work for you?
13:48:28LinusN2) it calculates the string length at run time
13:48:33Nico_PJdGordon: i'm not sure it's a problem... the user might want to add the audio file without the cuesheet sometimes
13:48:40linuxstbWhere is the latest cuesheet patch?
13:48:52Nico_Pa solution is to have the audio files in a subdir

13:49:29Nico_PI think the MPA attr is good but i'd like to change the icon
13:49:39JdGordonNico_P: i see the problem as the playlist would automatically add the .cue and .mp3 one after another...
13:49:52linuxstbBut the last patch there is incomplete.
13:50:02JdGordoneither the .cue should not be added, or the mp3 should only be added if there isnt a .cue (which isnt very nice)
13:50:14Nico_Plinuxstb: look the previous one
13:50:30amiconnbarrywardell: works.
13:50:53Nico_PJdGordon: i'm syaing this is not really a prob... the user can manually add the cue or the MP3
13:51:03amiconnHmm, convbdf should have one more switch that restricts conversion to pure ascii (chars 32..126)
13:51:04JdGordonNico_P: oh, i made some changes to cuesheet.c which i forgot to put in the patch, just some safety checks, and the viewer should use the plugin ram instaed of MAX_TRACKS
13:51:16linuxstbIMO, the .cue shouldn't be marked as an audio file, just picked up automatically when the associated audio file is played.
13:51:16Nico_Pand if he wants to add a whole dir of cues, he can have the audi files in a subdir and make the cues point to them
13:51:49JdGordonNico_P: but a standard .cue expects the mp3 in the same folder doesnt it?
13:51:52Nico_Plinuxstb: it's the other way round: a cue points to an audio file
13:51:56Nico_PJdGordon: no
13:52:12Nico_Pand it doesn't have to have the same name as the mp3 file either
13:52:43linuxstbNico_P: I know, but that causes problems. Other plugins (such as mp3cue for xmms and winamp) look for a .cue with the same name as an audio file, and I think that works well.
13:52:45Nico_Pso i say put the cues in a dir and the mp3 in an "audio" subdir

13:53:12JdGordondaurnimator: the play games link at the top
13:53:57Nico_Plinuxstb: the way i made it, the cue is a pointer to the audio file
13:54:14Nico_Pthis way the name of the cue and the name of the audio file are independant
13:54:19daurnimatorJdGordon: can i play YOU somehow?
13:54:48linuxstbNico_P: I understand that's the "correct" thing to do, but I still think it causes more problems than it solves.

13:56:29Nico_Plinuxstb: good point :)
13:56:57Nico_Pso you thnik we should hide the cues and check each time an MP3 is loaded to see if it has a cue of the same name ?
13:57:13Nico_Pmaybe it would make things simpler, yeah
13:57:34Nico_Pi'll try to do that and make a commitable patch
13:57:36linuxstbThe downside is that extra check when an audio file is opened...

13:58:48Nico_PJdGordon: i agree, that's why i did it the way i did in the first place
13:58:53lostlogicpetur: and here I thought that we'd solved at some point backwards seeks off buffer... apparently not.
13:58:58linuxstbJdGordon: I wouldn't call it a "big" hit, but it's a hit.
13:59:31JdGordonstrrchr, strcpy, open calls for each track being opened...
13:59:31Nico_Pwhat i don't understand is why the MPA attribute forces the icon
13:59:33JdGordonat least
13:59:34linuxstbWe could of course have a "look for cuefiles" option.
13:59:35peturlostlogic: back seek for short amounts is ok, longer seeks (5+ minutes I think) fail completely

14:00:34linuxstbHow are .m3u files handled?
14:00:37Nico_Pthen i think maybe the most elegant way is to create a new attribute and make the necessary changes on the code

14:08:46JdGordonoh, ok, i was going by the wikipedia article
14:08:54daurnimatorJdGordon: pm!
14:08:56JdGordonthe parser sort of will let that work,
14:10:02linuxstbI'm just testing the patch. My cuefile has PERFORMER once (at the very top), and not within each TRACK - and this isn't being shown in the WPS.
14:10:13Nico_Padding support for this would require quite a lot of changes to the current code
14:10:34linuxstbFor what? multiple files?
14:10:46Nico_Plinuxstb: yes, i was still on multiple files

14:11:42JdGordonhmm... i got that too, but assumed that was because of other changes
14:12:01Nico_Pshould be an easy fix
14:12:10Nico_Pi'll look at it
14:12:30linuxstbMy understanding is that PERFORMER and TITLE should default to the global definitions, but can be overridden by the local definitions for the TRACK.
14:12:41Nico_Plinuxstb: i agree
14:12:42linuxstbSorry, just PERFORMER...
14:12:54linuxstbThe TITLE at the top is the Album title.
14:13:18linuxstbAnd the TITLE in the track is the track title...
14:14:08JdGordonhmm... the problem is probably tracks that dont have a PERFORMER and are not being told to use the global one then

14:18:39Nico_Pah so that uses the plugin buffer to display a cuesheet ?
14:19:07Nico_Pwhy is using a local struct cue_track_info tracks[MAX_TRACKS] wrong ?
14:19:11linuxstbIs the max_cuesheet_tracks setting needed? What about an "enable cuesheets" setting instead - which could be used to make Rockbox search for cuesheets.
14:20:29JdGordonNico_P: youll run out of stack space...
14:20:40Nico_Plinuxstb: if we use a simple on/off setting, we would have 2*100 tracks in memory
14:20:48Nico_PJdGordon: it seems to work
14:21:06JdGordonok then
14:21:19linuxstbBut doesn't a track just need 4 bytes to store the offset/
14:21:40linuxstbAnd I thought only 99 tracks were allowed in a cue anyway.

14:31:21linuxstbIf we have an enable_cuesheets option, what do people think about using that to tell Rockbox when to look for a cuefile from the audio file?
14:32:53linuxstbJdGordon: That seems like a lot of work when displaying a directory...
14:33:15JdGordonit would only be run if a .cue was found tho
14:33:23JdGordonbut yeah

14:39:09bluebrotherwe should keep in mind that sid also can contain subsongs ... and that should get a better handling at some point also
14:39:34linuxstbIt just seems to fit better into Rockbox if we make the audio file the main file, and the cuesheet as something attached to that audio file.
14:40:30linuxstbA sort of external metadata.
14:41:55JdGordonIf we dont allow cues to be added in a normal folder play, we can give them a new attribute, which would mean a good icon. we could then add a option in the wps menu to search for .cues in the current playlist
14:43:22Nico_Pisn't that a bit complicated ?
14:43:28linuxstbWhy do you need to do anything extra? Just make Rockbox look for a .cue file whenever it opens an audio file (if cuesheet support is enabled). This also makes embedded cuesheets/chapters/etc work the same way.
14:44:11linuxstbIt's a slight performance hit, but it's simple...

14:58:33linuxstbIgnoring the issue of whether 150KB is a good thing to add to the bootloader, my point was that the array should be in a .c file, or even better, the .bmp file should be in SVN, and the Makefile should convert it to a .c file at build time.

17:26:08Nico_PMikachu: it doesn't display the text of the cuesheet, it displays it as a nice menu
17:26:24linuxstb_Thinking about extending the patch, how about a "sub-track viewer" on the WPS context menu, which allows skipping directly to tracks?

20:44:58markunIt's because we (gigabeat people) have the CPU running at 100MHz and boosting (to 300) doesn't always make sense

21:20:38preglowgood, good, good
21:20:41Slasherithat way slower speeds are very slow
21:20:42amiconnHmm, and the patch doesn't solve the problem that keeping the finger on the wheel always means repeat, and hence is blocking a list wrap, even if the movement is *really* slow

21:21:25preglowalso, i don't like the way the cursor bar seems to jump around the screen when scrolling fast
21:21:31*amiconn also wonders why this increases bin size by 18KB (!)
21:21:41preglowbecause of the trojan
21:21:49Slasheriamiconn: currently i disabled the actual "stepped acceleration". Currently there is no acceleration, but the scrolling speed is directly wheel_speed^2/constant

21:29:18SlasheriNico_P: yes
21:29:22w1ll14mi would think, let the main CPU run at 80 or 90MHz and the COP a little lower, because the audio thread can become heavy
