00:19:07perldiveryou can find one for $100-140 on ebay
00:19:36caduperldiver, heard about it, but as this thing isn't flash storage ...i prefer to buy new :P
00:19:55perldiverim talking about the brand new ones
00:20:48cadubtw i did a small search here in japan for older models from toshiba
00:21:06perldiveroh you're in japan?
00:21:09caduthe guy told me that when a collection is going to be released, toshiba recalls all former models :(
00:21:18perldiveryou can as well hunt for X30 or X60 then
00:21:27caduthat's why my chance of finding a Fxx or a Xxx here is impossible
00:21:38perldivertry japanese amazon and ebay
00:21:40caduas they're already being supplanted by the brand new spanking Sxx model :(

00:25:41Ranbeehi, do some themes use more power then others? my battery % is going down at about 1 ever 2 minutes.
00:26:08ShaidDoes your theme have peak meters on it?
00:26:24LloreanAnd since you're looking at the theme, is the backlight on?
00:26:47RanbeeShaid: not sure. i'm using the black glass one right now, but i'm new to rockbox so i thought i'd ask before i download everything
00:26:49caduLlorean, perldiver : thanks, i've been talking here with some guys about the gigabeat and i'm quite interested, i'll be buying it with the sole purpose of having a nice rockbox platform, with some good battery life (they told me to avoid ipods :P)
00:27:25RanbeeLlorean: yeap, i asked about that already, i suppose i'll put it back to 5 :| and stop playing around so much lol
00:27:27perldivercadu you won't be disappointed
00:27:34ShaidRanbee: Are you on an iPod?
00:27:41RanbeeShaid: yes
00:27:41LloreanRanbee: Having the backlight on will hurt your battery life a very, very large amount.
00:27:49caduperldiver, thank you for your support :P

00:28:39caduanyway, i'm not a coder person (can do some python and some silly C hacking) but if you guys need any translation service for -brazillian portuguese- just put me in :P
00:28:44perldivercadu, np. i would try to get an X30 red :P
00:29:03caduperldiver, what's the difference between the F30 and the X30 ? thinner ?
00:29:14perldiverthinner, a little bigger screen
00:29:49perldivercosmetic differences really, just nicer to the eye and hand :P
00:30:07LloreanDoesn't the X have worse battery life?
00:30:13LloreanBecause of the screen?
00:30:16RanbeeOK, thanks everyone, i think it much be the light, i can't stop playing around with it so the light is on all the time :D thanks for letting me know.
00:30:22perldiveralso there's no F30, just 10, 20, 40 and 60
00:30:27perldiverLlorean slightly
00:30:35perldiverfew hours here and there
00:30:53ShaidRanbee: Also, are you changing songs a lot?
00:31:02Shaidcause spinning the drive will lower battery too.
00:31:03LloreanA few _hours_ is a bit more than slightly. :-P
00:31:21perldiverLlorean well, 1 to 2 hours, let's say

00:49:13mcphailLlorean: requiring reset
00:49:52mcphailLlorean: also randomly locks up when browsing or playing from database
00:49:54dan_amcphail: I think that that problem is related to frequency scaling - try going into the debug menu, selecting CPU frequency and scrolling backwards to increase the "boost count"

00:56:01LinusN(gave me quite a headache) :-)
00:56:08JdGordonhehe sorry :D
00:56:32LinusNi have a solution that works, but there is one quirk
00:56:39donvitohas anyone here heard anything regarding the sansa rhapsody dev?
00:57:02Lloreandonvito: The forum thread is, I believe, up to date.
00:57:02LinusNi must say that the way of handling dynamic menu items is not very handy
00:57:38dan_adonvito: None of the core developers have Rhapsodys, so all we know is what is in the thread
00:57:45donvitoLlorean: ok, i was just checking, because no one's really said anything useful yet hah
00:57:52JdGordonyeah, unfortunatly it didnt work out as nicely as I hoped there... onplay.c becomes horrible after converting.. so im still working on it
00:58:00donvitodan_a: ahh i see
00:58:20donvitowell i have a rhapsody, and i am willing to test things if needed
00:58:35LloreanWell, the forum thread says what needs to be tested.
00:59:00LinusNJdGordon: anyway, my solution is this:
00:59:05donvitolike what bagder says on pg 45?
00:59:40donvitook, does the current emulator work with rhapsody fw?
00:59:57LinusN1) always use P2STR() in gui/list.c for the list item string
01:00:19Lloreandonvito: The emulator isn't really related to this sort of testing
01:01:20donvitoyea nvm stupid question ha
01:01:35donvitoi guess im just asking because im also trying to figure something else out
01:01:40LinusN2) let talk_menu_item() check for DYNAMIC_DESC and call the callback to get the string
01:02:14LinusN3) let the get_wps_item_name() callback return the ID pointer instead of the string
01:03:57JdGordonisnt it easier to add a 2nd callback to the menu_get_name_and_icon struct in menu.h to get the voice id?
01:04:27 Join robin0800 [0] (
01:05:23LinusNperhaps, but all these callbacks are driving me nuts
01:05:41amiconnLinusN: Could you add a new build, or will I have to wait for B4gder?
01:06:04LinusNonly the get_wps_item_name() callback is called 4 times for every cursor movement
01:06:10donvitoLlorean: is the bootloader linked in that thread specifically for the r or is it just re-encrypted

01:09:07JdGordonLinusN: 4 times?
01:10:08LinusNi can imagine it being called for each screen (main and remote)
01:10:26JdGordonthats still only twice tho
01:10:58JdGordonbut that really just means the list widget needs to buffer some lines
01:11:09LinusNbtw, the selected item is not spoken when the root menu is first displayed
01:11:48JdGordonare any menus voiced when they are first entered?
01:12:12LinusNyes, the selected entry is spoken
01:12:19stevepastelanI have a general question
01:12:26LinusNstevepastelan: shoot
01:12:42stevepastelanI heard that rockbox improves the battery life of devices.. does that hold true for the iPod (Video)?
01:12:57stevepastelani.e. drains less than the official firmware
01:13:03LinusNstevepastelan: quite the opposite i'm afraid
01:13:13LloreanAll of the PortalPlayer targets, including all currently supported iPods, have significantly worse battery life than they should right now.
01:13:25caduperldiver, i prefer the 'a few hours' longer battery life model ;)
01:13:56Lloreancadu: I wouldn't sacrifice even half an hour of battery life for a 0.2 inch larger screen, personally. :)
01:14:11cadume neither :)
01:14:22cadui won't be looking at it at all :P
01:14:34caduif it has a smaller screen, good to me

01:14:51LloreanWell, they're the same resolution anyway.
01:15:08cadubtw, how difficult would be to port rockbox to GP2X ?
01:15:08LinusNJdGordon: btw, what is this "buffer" argument supposed to be used for?
01:15:24caduit has an u-boot standard bootloader (on these arm boards)
01:15:33caduall hardware is documented , datasheets available
01:15:43Lloreancadu: It'd pretty much just depend on how much time someone was willing to spend doing it.
01:15:48Shaidwell, all you need is a developer who wants to port it, cadu.
01:15:53LinusNJdGordon: in the menu callbacks
01:16:00robin0800I get a reported 9 hrs on ipod video 60gb with album art patch and 64mb memory patch
01:16:24caduShaid, no one here has one ? :P
01:16:42JdGordonLinusN: its the same as the list callback, so buffer is a static buffer to copy the text into (unless it can just be returned)
01:17:14caduand another difficult would be to put rockbox as a standalone, run its kernel in usermode and redirect screen to say...a SDL surface and buttons to a joystick ?
01:17:22Lloreancadu: Almost everyone in this channel focuses on actual digital audio players, rather than converting game devices or other things into being digital audio players.
01:17:38caduLlorean, oh got it :)

06:01:19FebsAre you at all familiar with LaTeX?
06:02:08bonbonthejonnot particularly
06:02:44FebsIn that case, you can just write up the changes that you think should be made and submit them to the patch tracker as patches under the category "manual."
06:07:48bonbonthejonFebs: ok. another question, why isnt more of the manual instead in the wiki
06:08:10bonbonthejonFebs: I mean, it seems like there are two sources of info, couldnt they be combined
06:09:19FebsI'm sure that there are instances where that is the case. However, I think that the manual is intended to be the ultimate end-user guide.
06:09:49FebsIt's the compilation of all of the relevant information.
06:10:26FebsAnd it's something that can be downloaded, printed out and kept as a reference, which is not something that can be easily done with the wiki.

06:19:13LloreanIt sounds like something that everyone should notice instantly if it's happening as described.
06:19:24FebsI saw it. I can partly duplicate the bug.
06:20:00FebsIf I play music and then let the disk spin down, and then enter the file browser, the disk will spin up again and continue to spin for a couple of minutes.
06:20:22piercedb0iAnyone have a 2nd Gen Nano?
06:20:25FebsThe bug report suggests that the disk will spin constantly, but I haven't been able to duplicate that.

06:28:16LloreanWell that short spinup is pretty regular for the disk targets with dircache off, though.
06:29:07FebsLet's see what happens when I turn the dircache on.
06:33:01 Part piercedb0i
06:33:33LloreanFebs: Apparently it may have something to do with the font.

06:33:54JdGordonshouldnt have anything to do with the font?
06:33:58LloreanHe says a larger font causes the problem
06:34:00JdGordonbut that is strang
06:34:04LloreanMaybe the glyph cache is screwed up?

06:36:02JdGordonthats the only reason the disk sohuld spin up when entering menus

07:05:25JdGordondid you say it was more or less reproducable if music is playing?
07:05:36ryranapparently, more
07:05:47LloreanI had no problem reproducing it with music off.
07:06:03ryrancould've just been my brain jumping to conclusions about buffering
07:06:14JdGordonwith music off I would assume it would be more aparent because there is less liklyhood the disk is spinning
07:06:34JdGordonanyway, yeah, the problem is MAX_FONT_SIZE is too rediculously small
07:06:37LloreanWell, once your music's buffered you've got 15-45 minutes before it'll need to buffer again depending on bitrate anyway
07:06:47LloreanDid MAX_FONT_SIZE get changed recently?

07:11:22LloreanThen again 1/3 of our fonts are fully less than 10k flat out.

07:35:23JdGordonhow about when a font is loaded, if its too large, ask the user if they want to reallocate room for the font (which could pause playback)?
07:35:32ryranwell I changed max_font_size to 300k and over a minute I couldn't reproduce the spin-ups using my 200k fonts... YAY! (obviously very reproduceable w/unifont) thanks for the work-around JDG.
07:35:34JdGordonthen do as dircache and allocate the privous amount of room?
07:36:27amiconnVariable allocation also doesn't make much sense: true unicode fonts are multi-megabyte, but you only ever need a fraction of the glyphs
07:36:55JdGordonits not lcd dependant tho.. its language dependant
07:37:26 Join BHSPitLappy [0] (
07:37:27amiconnIt is as well lcd dependent, because you can user larger fonts on a larger lcd

07:38:33JdGordonlooking at the file sizes, 100k looks like a better value than 10k for swcodec
07:40:17amiconnWhat does that have to do with the codec?
07:40:46amiconnI'm sure tomal would get angry if you just increase the font cache size for swcodec...
07:41:16JdGordonnothing.. but swcodec is the plenty of ram targets

07:41:29JdGordonbah, yeah forgot about that one
07:41:45JdGordonMEM > 8 then
07:41:47amiconnJdGordon: Never draw conclusions like this
07:42:12amiconnThe font cache size should at maximum depend on the lcd size, but nothing else
07:42:54amiconnWe use these feature definitions because we want to stay flexible, so don't make things depend on the wrong features
07:43:39LloreanWhat's the largest 'language' character set?
07:43:55JdGordonchinese i think
07:44:14amiconnJdGordon: Btw, LinusN indirectly found another case of menu_string != settings_headline
07:44:14JdGordonor japanese? something from the east :p
07:44:22JdGordoncool :)
07:44:47JdGordongoogle says chinese
07:44:53amiconn...and he added a voice string because you did use the settings headline (which doesn't need to be voiced) for the menu (where it needs to)
07:45:20amiconnNow there are 2 voice clips, meaning the voice file unnecessarily takes more space... :\
07:46:10amiconnI'm talking about "Channel configuration". This always was just "Channels" in the menu
07:46:32JdGordonI saw the commit....
07:46:45JdGordonChannels in the menu sucks anyway imo
07:47:15amiconnPlease make it use either one or the other, but not both, and drop the other. The recording settings still use "Channels"
07:47:46smablyJdGordon: i had an idea for the menus; maybe you've already considered this, but what do you think of using icons to indicate the values for boolean settings?
07:47:51smablyfeasible, or even desirable?
07:48:26JdGordonsmably: feasle yes, but wouldnt look so good... have a look in the forums, there is a possibility of showing the value of every setting in the menu
07:48:45smablyok, i'll have a look :)
07:48:58JdGordondont bother trying the patch tho.. its way out of date
07:49:04JdGordonbut the pic looks good :p
07:50:20smablyah, found it
07:50:32JdGordonamiconn: linus should have fixed that instead of making Channel configuration voicable... if we do want to use 2 strings for that setting...
07:51:25amiconnI'm not saying we should use 2 strings for that setting, but now the one for playback and the one for recording use different strings...

09:12:33thewhoHi. A have a H120. Shouldn't the main menu have the item "Now playing" instead of "Resume playback" when the FM radio is active?
09:13:00LinusNthewho: no
09:13:02linuxstb_If you did that, how would you resume playback?
09:13:15linuxstb_You already have an FM Radio entry in the menu.
09:13:22LinusNamiconn: i see the log, what can i do to fix it?
09:14:01thewholinuxstb_: only if I'm listening to the radio. If nothing is playing, the menu item would be "Rsume playback" and activating it would start mp3 playback.
09:15:18Lloreanthewho: The option relates to playback, which by very definition of the word, is playing back of a file. Why should there at any point be two options that both take you to the FM Radio screen?
09:15:23thewhoLinusN: OTOH you're right in the sense that when FM radio is active nothing is "playing". It's making noises/sound but it's not "playing"
09:15:49thewhoLlorean: hehe. Simultaneous shooting :-)
09:16:23LinusNi must say that the MAX_FONT_SIZE could be a lot bigger
09:17:05LloreanIt could definitely be dependent upon screen size, at least
09:17:08LinusNit is
09:17:10thewhoLlorean: I see now. I only thought that it should be "Now playing" whenever I can hear something. But the current behaviour is ok.
09:17:40LloreanMaybe some way to highlight the FM Radio while the radio is active?
09:17:49 Join lude187 [0] (
09:18:57thewhoLlorean: my concern is the following. If I'm listening to the radio and call up the main menu, I'd like to be able to return to whatever I'm listening to (FM/mp3) without knowing what exactly it is.
09:18:59LloreanLinusN: I've been thinking about the topic of banishing the Root Menu with a second press of the menu button, and realized that to mimic past behaviour regarding the menu button would basically be impossible, unless the root menu and the settings menu were treated as one.
09:19:17amiconnLlorean: FM is already indicated in the status bar
09:19:20Lloreanthewho: The concept of banishing the menus with a second press of "Menu" would cover that.
09:19:36LinusNLlorean: the whole point of the main menu was to change the interface
09:19:53decayedcell__clicking on the gcc url here: redirects me to the rockbox no spam page? Oo
09:20:08LloreanLinusN: It's just a significant frustration to call up the menu to edit settings and have to navigate a significant distance to get back to the filetree.
09:20:26LloreanLinusN: The ability to banish the settings with a second press of Menu is the most significant thing I miss about the 'old' system.
09:20:31LinusNLlorean: i can imagine that the Menu button could do that
09:21:11LloreanI'm just not sure how it'd work properly
09:21:25LloreanRight now if you go into the settings, 'Menu' brings you to the main menu, which makes sense with the current method.

10:24:49markunJdGordon: some minor problems with the Main Menu:
10:24:49jhMikeSI just hated holding two buttons to move a cursor around
10:25:21bluebrotherI still want to do simpler things like the runtime page −− but I'm stuck by it not updating, and I haven't found enough time to look sharp enough at it
10:25:35bluebrotherbut the line moving in the input is really a nice addition
10:25:36amiconnLinusN: Still, the #define within the inner #else will never be used. And the font size is what causes excessive spinups, so the cache needs to be bigger when the lcd is bigger
10:25:37markunafter starting playback from the filetree you go to the WPS, if you now go from the WPS to the menu it will point to the Files entry.
10:25:38bluebrotherI like it.
10:26:48amiconnAnd the 4000 might be a little too small even for the archos lcd

10:32:13jhMikeSThere's no way to turn the radio off directly other than the radio screen is there?

10:34:32jhMikeSmakes sense to me
10:34:52LloreanThe "Now Playing" thing shouldn't say "Now Playing" during the radio, nor should it ever take you there
10:35:00LloreanThe FM Radio option on the main menu already serves that purpose well.
10:35:05*amiconn agrees with Llorean
10:35:10bluebrotherI don't think "now playing" should affect the radio
10:35:22LloreanBut for the Play and Stop buttons, I see no reason they shouldn't return you to the radio screen, or stop radio audio, if that was the last audio in use.
10:35:27bluebrotherbut the stop button could be considered stopping playback, and that includes radio
10:35:34jhMikeSonly for stopping it but I agree about the now playing item
10:36:15bluebrotherI'm not sure if I would like "play" reenabling the radio. It has been tied to the wps for years.
10:36:32pondlifePLAY should resume, not go to the radio.
10:36:37jhMikeSme neither
10:36:55pondlifeAlso, PLAY and the Now Playing option should do the same thing.
10:37:01jhMikeSjust the stop button should silence things, that's it

10:50:51linuxstb_No company seems any better or worse than any other. No-one has given any real assistance to a Rockbox port, and they all say installing it voids your warranty.
10:51:14jhMikeSwell, if they just don't interfere I'd say that's ethical...I can't figure out what makes looking at software no naughtly and any worse than taking apart your car's transmission and building it to your specs.

10:55:22markunin what way is the X5 display dithered?
10:55:38jhMikeSmarkun: two ways
10:56:05thewhopondlife: I'd also expect that PLAY and "Now playing" do the same. But when FM is playing you don't have "Now playing" but rather "Resume playback". Hence PLAY could take you back to the FM screen.
10:56:06jhMikeSthe 18bit video is dithered to 16 bits by hardware.
10:56:56jhMikeShigher depth backgrounds are dithered to 16 bits (565) by the image loader
10:57:18amiconnThe latter is done on all colour targets
10:57:30markunjhMikeS: we could do 18-bit graphics for the Gigabeat, but I don't think we would gain anything from that.
10:57:32pondlifethewho: I disagree - in this case PLAY should resume playback
10:57:40DataGhost hehehe
10:58:03pondlifeSo, anyone know of a place to collect battery_bench.txts?
10:58:16jhMikeSmarkun: I made an 18 bit throughout version of rockbox on the x5 but it actually looked worse in many respects.
10:59:00jhMikeSNot to mention additional bitmap size and weird pixel format. Once advantage on that might be having DMA writes to the display though.
10:59:17markunjhMikeS: I'll not bother with it then. It would also double the size of the framebuffer.
10:59:34markunjhMikeS: we already have DMA writes with 16 bit mode
11:00:04thewhopondlife: If FM is active, will the main menu cursor always be at "FM" when the main menu is brought up?
11:00:13pondlifeShould be
11:00:17jhMikeSx5 has a little problem in that it expects 18 bit pixels, even in 16 bit mode so the driver does some conversion on the fly
11:00:17pondlifeI've not tried it though

11:27:22amiconnbluebrother: yes
11:28:25preglowjhMikeS: only modification will be it reading and writing from one array?
11:28:47jhMikeSyou said ARM has conditional execution so it can have one function for sure. doing both channels for resampling in one pass is quite beneficial so that must stay but requires two functions or two branches in one function.
11:28:51jhMikeSpreglow: yes
11:28:57preglowthat should be minor indeed
11:29:15preglowall the array logic is in c, heh
11:29:21preglowonly the mul itself is in arm asm,
11:31:04jhMikeSI figured as much but can't make sure it runs right myself. I guess it should read then postincrement the source but write to the original source address then increment that

11:50:32DwylocPressing stop on the remote now stops playback instead of moveing the the previous directory in the file view or previos menu in the menus.

11:51:07JdGordonno prob
11:51:18preglowjhMikeS: what's the problem?
11:53:40safetydanbluebrother, seems fine to me, but I haven't tested it
11:53:57DwylocI am guessing the remote problem is related to the ether the root menu or the new menu system.
11:55:04jhMikeSI don't know...perl|work reported problems with crossfade...ok fixed that. Then reported glitches in the middle of some flacs that were new. Was running eq with precut only. Precut is unchanged, so that leaves perhaps eq, and maybe a bug in the output
11:55:47preglowjhMikeS: hmm
11:55:51safetydanbluebrother, though... localisation doesn't really work with that way of doing things

14:27:25pondlifeVersion string would be the obvious one.
14:27:50thewhoamiconn: thanks. But the size is the same?
14:28:05pondlifeAnyways, lunchtime
14:28:24JdGordonpondlife: version strings dont change in custom builds during testing....
14:28:43pondlifeYes, but real users don't do much of that
14:29:10pondlifeI'm more in favour of it helping users to upgrade.
14:29:18pondlifeIf that makes sense.
14:29:53JdGordonI dont know if we can actually read the version string from the file
14:30:01pondlifeHopefully if you can operate a compiler you can remember to rolo. (Not that I've always remembered..;) )
14:30:05JdGordonIts not in the actual header i dont think
14:30:13pondlifeMe neither, but I thought it might be findable.
14:30:56JdGordoneasier to dump the feature and save a few bytes
14:30:59pondlifeNot a biggie, but I'd prefer to leave it in there rather than kill that functionality completely. Even if it's not fixed up immediately.
14:31:36pondlifeIt's a useful feature IMHO... I know this entirely subjective though. Back to the "I don't use crossfade" argument...
14:31:52pondlifeJust think it might reduce support.

14:31:58JdGordonhmm... I actually agree... but its pointelss because it doesnt work at all currently
14:32:03pixelmathewho: there are two iaudio cases that differ in thickness: the thicker one is used for the X5 with a 60GB drive (dual platter) with a small battery - or the X5L with the bigger battery but only with a single platter drive, 20GB and 30GB are available). The smaller one is for X5s with a single platter drive and a small battery.

19:55:24GodEaterbecause if you try to mix the two methods, you'll end up with music that the apple OS can't see

19:57:23GodEaterbluey-: if anything I'd expect hfs+ to decrease battery life
19:57:37GodEaterthere's so much metadata overhead that it would be pointless for rockbox to support

19:59:15n1sbluey-: anyway the reason that FAT32 is a very good choice here is that it is so well supported by computer OS's, hfs is mac only (and linux and maybe some others) but fat works everywhere and it is quite simple too and it's supported by all OF's too
19:59:53bluey-thats a point

20:31:40preglowshould we try to revert the "switch off when alarm is set" functionality the manual describes, or correct the manual?
20:31:59LinusNi don't think it should switch off
20:32:17Learpondlife: (In case you're reading the log) Previously tree.c would start the WPS, so when you left the WPS, you returned to tree.c, with all the context intact. Now dirbrowse returns a special value when it is time to show the WPS.
20:32:19preglowand i think i agree
20:33:16amiconnLinusN: How could we handle potential collisions then?
20:33:28amiconnI.e. the alarm kicking in when the box is still on?
20:33:39LinusNwhy would that be a problem?
20:33:39preglowwhy would we want to handle that?
20:33:43preglowit's the user's fault, surely
20:33:54preglowthe powermgmt thread already checks for it
20:34:00preglowand disables alarm if it sees it
20:34:08LinusNwhich is wrong imho
20:34:15amiconnLinusN: *Iirc* the v1 alarm mod doesn't allow the box to shut down if that happens
20:34:22LinusNit should send a SYS_ALARM signal to the main thread
20:34:37amiconn..and unless I'm missing something, the archos rtc doesn't send interrupts
20:34:48preglowit doesn't, no
20:34:53LinusNno, but the powermgnt thread polls the rtc
20:34:59amiconnoh ok
20:35:08LinusNthere is no reason to force a shutoff
20:35:16LinusNor at least there shouldn't be
20:35:35LinusNdamn, my sim hangs when trying to play mp3 files... :-(
20:35:43amiconnThen I wonder why there used to be a shutdown...
20:36:11LinusNbecause the rtc is connected to the ON button, and you can't shut it down if the rtc alarm is unhandled
20:36:49amiconnYes I know. But you say the rtc is polled and hence the alarm will be handled...

21:41:17amiconnEither it should just ignore the file, or play it (without reading the metadata)
