00:58:00Bigred84no i have happily had rockbox on my h10 from the begining of the port

00:58:31Aloneayeah, ##windows people are nice.
00:58:35Bigred84yes, even the people over on the windows channel were stumped
00:58:37Soappowered hub didn't stop the crash? dang.
00:58:59LloreanBigred84: If your computer's freezing, it's definitely a computer-side problem. Especially since Rockbox doesn't have a USB mode on that device, so it's the original firmware that's running when you're in USB.
00:59:19Bigred84oh, ok thats what i thought
00:59:30 Quit lee-qid ("aufwiederbyebientotsayonara")
00:59:39Bigred84would it be apropriate for me to ask for help here or should i move on?
01:00:39LloreanIf you're plugging in the cable while in Rockbox, there is a little bit of the USB detection process that has caused some USB drivers problems, but that doesn't normally happen on Windows. And if the problem happens after rebooting Windows, setting your player in UMS mode, and then after that plugging in the cable, then it's definitely something unrelated to Rockbox.
01:01:23LloreanIt's not really something we'd be able to help much with, if it's on your computer's side, because there are a lot of things it could be, up to and including drivers or other random software you've got installed.
01:01:48Bigred84could you recomend a channal that could help me with my problem

01:02:57AloneaBigred84: are you serious you cannot find ##windows? I just joined it.
01:03:35Bigred84wel actually someone on the windowwsxp channel spent an hour walking me through steps to solve the problem, its just that they are as stumped as you
01:03:35Aloneayou could try #windows and see if it redirects you
01:03:47Bigred84yes they redirected me to windowsxp
01:04:08Aloneathey, as in the people, or they as in the irc?
01:04:11Soap#windowsxp is an improper channel. since they do not officially represent microsoft, freenode guidelines say they should be ##windowsxp.

01:51:13RoriHi. I need some info. I am thinking of getting one of these doohickies for my Nano v1 with Rockbox on it. Any idea if it will work? It displays incoming calls on the Nano apparently
01:51:42LloreanRockbox does not work on accessories that require communication with the iPod.
01:52:08RoriBoo! :(
01:52:19RoriThat's a major bummer
01:52:39LloreanWell, unfortunately none of the people who seem to want that seem to want it enough to work on it.
01:52:45 Join safetydan [0] (n=dan@rockbox/developer/safetydan)
01:53:05RoriThat is a major flaw in Rockbox perfection
01:53:11LloreanAccessory support is something that only benefits iPod users, and requires a decent amount of work for a non-core feature, so it's hardly a priority.
01:53:28LloreanBeing open source, though, people who want it are welcome to work on it. They just don't.
01:53:38Rorior don't know how
01:53:48LloreanDon't know how can be solved by spending some time learning.
01:54:32LloreanIt can be looked at like "It may take me a long time to learn, and a long time to do, but if I don't do it, it's possible nobody ever will, and 'never' is further away than 'however long it takes giving it the small amount of time I have available'"
01:54:35Rorioh well may have to get the less attractive unversal inline Bluetooth thingy instead. No fancy communication with the Nano or FM radio though

04:21:11Lloreanpaerez: Notepad is often a bad idea, because of line endings.
04:21:18LloreanWordpad is okay about preserving them though, I believe.
04:21:20paerezah good point
04:21:25daniel1234Is nano one of the packages
04:21:27paerezi just meant they can use a native editor

04:22:06paerezyes I think wordpad will be fine
04:22:51daniel1234doesn't it say on the web site you can't use notepad or wordpad
04:24:08Lloreandaniel1234: It should say you can't use Notepad for sure, at least.
04:24:09hardeepwordpad/notepad will add extra line endings as Llorean said
04:24:24daniel1234Ok I will try wordpad
04:24:25Lloreanhardeep: I'm pretty sure wordpad will preserve Unix style if the file originally had them. Or it has for me in the past.
04:24:26hardeepyou can use the dos2unix command on cygwin to remove them from the file
04:24:59hardeepLlorean: hmmm, i haven't tried recently
04:25:39Lloreanhardeep: I've never added a line with it, it's always been an in-line edit though. A case of double clicking on something instead of open-with, and then realizing a little bit later that I got lucky.
04:26:20hardeepyeah, it may not modify the existing lines... it will probably add dos-style if you create a new line

05:48:20LloreanYou can't encode MPEG at 160x120, 120 isn't a multiple of 16

05:49:29LloreanIt's probably not technically compliant with the standard then

06:11:42Lloreandaniel1234: As long as you know where it is for when you're actually running the patch command, it's not needed after you patch.
06:12:34EnR_N:P oops
06:12:59EnR_Nbut more ram 0.0 which version has the 64mb?
06:13:28daniel1234so I put the diff file in the build folder that is under the source folder and navigate to the build dir then what do I do
06:13:33Soapthese aren't PCs, and even on PCs, RAM only helps speed when it saves thrashing your L4 cache (HD)
06:14:50LloreanEnR_N: RAM has very little to do with performance in Rockbox.
06:15:09LloreanIt mostly just has to do with "How often do we have to spin up the disk?"
06:15:12EnR_NAh hmm - Gotcha.
06:15:34EnR_NYeah , though doesn't more RAM = more battery life
06:16:32Soapwhich, really, is no different than a PC. The RAM=speed thing is a moden misconception based upon mega-megabyte OSs and apps always swapping to disk.
06:17:24daniel1234I ran the patch command and tried to add my patch and it gave an error does anyone know what the problem is
06:17:32EnR_NOh . Also I have a question (plz):for the mpeg plugins rebuffering- it quotes "Rebuffering - mpegplayer just buffers as much video as it can fit into your player's memory, plays it and then stops. It doesn't refill the buffer and continue playing."
06:17:49EnR_Nin here does the memory mean the RAM of the current device?

06:43:51LloreanEnR_N: More RAM doesn't necessarily mean more battery life. More RAM means the disk has to spend more time spinning to fill the RAM, and if you skip audio a lot, it means you wast a lot of time buffering (and thus a lot of battery).
06:44:14LloreanMore RAM only really means more battery life if you follow appropriate usage habits for that extended buffer.
06:44:29EnR_NLlorean: thanks for the reply ^_^
06:45:21EnR_NI understand
06:47:32jjoreYou know, I would have thought memory was also a battery life cost because it also draws.
06:49:00Lloreanjjore: Compared to spinning up an HD, or keeping it spinning until you need the data, the ratio's highly in favour of the memory

06:51:19jjoreYes, I imagine. I just don't think it comes at zero cost.
06:52:17LloreanIt's non-zero, because RAM is volatile of course, but it's a benefit in most cases.

06:58:17LloreanJdGordon: I realized after I said that, it'd depend on there being 2x16 rather than 1x32

07:21:18n17ikh|LappyI can't imagine an audio chip in an audio player being this noisy :(
07:21:21Lloreann17ikh|Lappy: Try disabling the LCD sleep, so it's just the backlight going off.
07:21:41LloreanMany portable players are very, very noisy.
07:21:55n17ikh|Lappythat's terrible
07:21:56Lloreanpoco153: That's because there's not a per-port list.
07:22:13n17ikh|Lappyah, I had forgotten LCD sleep and backlight time are seperate
07:22:34Lloreann17ikh|Lappy: People aren't generally willing to pay for the additional cost. As long as apple sells their iPods at a certain price point, it's not economical to sell players of the same capacity that cost significantly more for something 95% of the population won't hear.
07:22:36n17ikh|Lappyyeah, seems like after it times out if I pressed it immediately (not giving it time for LCD sleep) it came back normally
07:22:57Lloreann17ikh|Lappy: the Mpeg Player draws to the screen in a different way I believe, and I suspect the sleep interferes with it, is all.

10:02:22Llorean Time zones are useful for comparing what relative "part of the day" you're in. DST doesn't really have a "use" except the theory that it saves energy, which apparently seems up for debate now.
10:02:52JdGordonisnt dst so you have more chance to enjoy the summer sun after work?
10:02:55Bagderin Sweden the arguments for DST is mostly said to be to use the daylight better
10:03:15*JdGordon has deja vu from ~6months ago :p
10:03:16GaloisI can sorta kinda see a reason for changing clocks for the summers on the grounds that summer and winter sunlight patterns differ. It's a bad reason (to me) but at least I can see a reason.
10:03:38GaloisHowever, when the discussion shifts in the direction of "year round dst" or similar nonsense, that to me is just a ridiculous idea
10:03:56LloreanBagder: But the daylight gradually shifts as the year goes on anyway. Why not have businesses open at the X:30 that's halfway between the DST and non-DST times, and be done with it?
10:04:12BagderI agree
10:04:19BagderI'm all for skipping the DST madness
10:04:31Bagderbut I want to get stuck in GMT+2 then please ;-)
10:04:37Galoisthe united states was more or less fine with 6 months of daylight saving[s] time
10:04:45Galoisthen our idiotic president went and screwed it up to 8 months
10:04:50GaloisI don't like this trend
10:04:52LloreanAs far as it affects me, DST just means that once a year I'm late for everything for a day, and once a year I'm early.
10:05:05Bagderbut don't the US states have individual DST? some don't have it, right?
10:05:14LloreanBagder: I think just Arizona doesn't.
10:05:33Galoisindiana has 15 different time zones so if you install linux there's a whole menu of time zones just for indiana
10:05:37JdGordonyou have 50 states and only 1 doesnt have dst? :O
10:05:51Galoisbut indiana and arizona are unworthy anyway, so they don't count
10:06:09BagderI don't think even russia has 15
10:06:19Galois[root@t31:~]# rpm -ql tzdata | grep -i indiana | wc
10:06:19Galois 33 33 1524
10:07:17LloreanJdGordon: Arizona and Hawaii of the 50 states.
10:07:26Bagderwell, at least DST keeps us all debating and arguing a lot
10:07:36JdGordon the first paragrap is great :)
10:08:48JdGordonseems it was to save energy...
10:09:33Bagder"The extra afternoon daylight also cuts overall traffic accident rates"
10:09:39Bagder(according to wikipedia)
10:12:23JdGordonso umm... should we put in a simple DST setting? or not bother?
10:13:20Bagderblue has DST, red never had it, orange once had
10:13:34BagderJdGordon: I say don't bother
10:13:42LloreanIt looks like *parts* of Arizona observe it?
10:13:49JdGordonthat map is wrong...
10:14:03Bagderit is pointed to from
10:14:03LloreanI hate the idea of driving North or South and finding myself in a different time zone
10:14:12JdGordonwestern austrlia trialed it once or twice IIRC and apparently do have it now
10:14:26BagderLlorean: for entire countries I can accept that
10:14:38*JdGordon loves the west wing episodee where DST screws them :)

10:15:12LloreanBagder: Man, I hate the idea of driving around in my own country just to discover the laws have changed because I'm in a new county or state.
10:15:24BagderI can understand that
10:15:39LloreanNow I see I have more time zone concerns than I thought about. :)
10:15:49*Llorean should just go find himself an island somewhere
10:17:00JdGordonrockbox should have bought sealand...

11:59:20Slasherino, it shouldn't cause it to sleep forever
11:59:45Slasherimaybe there is some other issue
11:59:50InsectoidPerhaps so

12:02:01InsectoidI'm afraid what's wrong is that I put in the calls to the beep function in the wrong parts of button.c and button_clickwheel.c
12:02:34Slasheriah, you should never put those in the ISR routine
12:02:44Slasherior core crahses for sure
12:02:46InsectoidBut this might not be the case −− I had to have gotten it right in at least one of them? What happens is whenever I press the scrollwheel or scroll the scrollwheel it starts. And doesn't stop.

12:08:09Insectoid... I've learned more c tonight than I have my entire life −− I was proud to just get it to compile. And it takes about twenty-five minutes to compile on my silly 400mhz linux box. So experimentation is very slow.
12:09:15Slasherihmm, you should be running linux, that compile time sounds over lengthy
12:09:43InsectoidI am running Debian −− but it's on an old optiplex.
12:09:46*Insectoid winces.
12:09:58Slasherihowever, you only need to compile the core, plugins and codecs aren't necessary unless you want to try playing audio
12:10:21Slasheriand dont "make clean" every time and make sure ccache is installed

12:12:14Slasherinot sure if there is any flags for that but after you have seen that core is linked (LD something) and compile of codecs/plugins start, just stop processing the Makefile by ctrl-c

15:14:09linuxstbYou need to hold a button (normally the same as the menu button) whilst inserting the USB cable. This will prevent Rockbox attempting to change to disk mode (which doesn't work anyway on the Sansa yet).

16:19:58linuxstbBe prepared for it to freeze your player... I'm curious how well it works on the X5 or H300 - does the disk rebuffering cause noticable frameskips? It seems flawless on my ipod Photo and gigabeat though.

19:03:05roolkuzimperlig: playlist, not playlist catalog
19:05:33linuxstbSliMM: In Rockbox, bitmaps are usually single-dimension arrays of type fb_data - so you want bmp[y*BMP_WIDTH+x] - where BMP_WIDTH is the width of the bitmap. On greyscale and mono targets (or mono bitmaps on Colour targets), the bitmaps store more than one pixel in each byte.
19:06:07***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
19:06:30SliMMso i must know the bitmap exact height and width?
19:06:54SliMMdamn.. thanx
19:07:12linuxstbIf you're using bitmaps created by the Rockbox build system (i.e. .bmp files converted at compile-time), then you have access to the width and height.
19:07:49linuxstbe.g. look in the bitmaps directory of your build directory.
19:08:16std|denisSliMM: you can define your bitmap as "extern fb_data bmp[WIDTH][HEIGHT];" and use as a two-dim. array
19:09:00SliMMthat's a good thing to know
19:09:02linuxstbThat's not encouraged in Rockbox - you should use the bmp build system and #include the automatically generated .h
19:09:26zimperligroolku!thanks now i found it! but if there is this file already in list and i "insert next" this file does this file is now thwice in my list or just moved to another place?

19:38:00markunor can't that be helped?
19:38:14linuxstb_The newest patch only buffers 1MB to start with, and then starts playing whilst it fills the buffer up completely. It doesn't seem particularly slow to me.

23:02:13amiconnIt has a slight disadvantage compared to svn: jump scroll doesn't work
23:02:14pixelmaNico_P: got a finding about your tokenizer patch - it would be easier to explain (as you probably could try out yourself) if you'd have a coldfire target at hand (hopefully you do?)
23:02:32Lloreanamiconn: "Jump scroll"?
23:02:44Nico_Ppixelma: not atm
23:02:51amiconnBut the code is cleaner, and a lot more similar to the bitmap lcd code

23:03:39Nico_Ppixelma: maybe the sim will do though ?
23:04:05andrewg867Llorean: it sounds good on paper but sounds aweful, even the Sandisk firmware disables it. I was playing with the windows emulator and I saw that the real firmware sent the value to the register to set the timeout to 0ms
23:04:09amiconnIt already implements some of the bitmap lcd functions which weren't there before: margin setting, lcd_getstringsize(), lcd_putsxy() and some related text output functions
23:04:21amiconnNico_P: There's a NULL pointer access somewhere
23:04:24bluebrothersounds good
23:04:51mattzzBy the way: Anybody interested in checking out or submitting or
23:05:09Lloreanandrewg867: Is it just a bad sounding effect, or is it part of what limits the volume as well?
23:05:27amiconnNico_P: On SH and coldfire it hits when you enable the memory guard in the debug menu. Unfortunately that feature doesn't exist on arm
23:05:36pixelmaNico_P: hmm... so I'll try to explain... I wanted to know what is displayed for a very short time when you actually start playback - so amiconn started the watchdog on my Ondio (maybe it's only hwcodec either way) - it then gave me "I0C: UserBrk at 0901650A"

23:06:21pearldiverso 24?
23:06:22amiconnThe UserBrk (on coldfire it would be 'Debug') address can be used to track down the individual function that causes the hit
23:06:23*bluebrother wonders why the last sync of FS #6616 is a c file rather than a diff
23:06:28andrewg867Llorean: if you set the timeout to 0mb then it just gets distorted when you max out the headphones (or the headphone amp) otherwise it just completely cuts out for whatever timeout you set (256mb default)
23:06:39linuxstbpearldiver: Yes, definitely exactly 24fps
23:06:45pearldiverok thanks
23:07:08pearldiverrebuffer works wonders btw
23:07:16Lloreanbluebrother: It's just a standalone plugin with no changes to the API, so the only other change is in SOURCES.
23:07:22andrewg867sounds better distorted because sometimes you get the odd bit of extra heavy bass in a song that you can live with being fractionally distorted than having it cut out
23:07:28pearldiveri think dave needs a bottle of champaigne to be sent his way :P
23:07:31pixelmaNico_P: s/watchdog/memory guard
23:07:35mattzzLlorean: Should be possible. You think the pre-selectable patterns are not sufficient or enough?
23:07:47amiconn(you need the .bin and the .map of the build in question, a disassembler, the C source and a bit of patience)
23:07:49Lloreanandrewg867: And what is this feature inteded to prevent? Damage to something?
23:07:53bluebrotherLlorean, yes. But I still prefer diff files
23:08:03Nico_Ppixelma, amiconn: can I try it on the sim ?
23:08:19bluebrotherand a diff can contain a single added file without any problems
23:08:38 Part JavaMan22
23:09:09Lloreanmattzz: How 'bout monochrome bitmaps? Just add it to viewers.config and allow users to open-with mono bitmaps with it. Then they can use a bitmap editor to create patterns for it without it having to have explicit pattern creation support.
23:09:13andrewg867Llorean: maybe but there seems to be no issue with disabling it
23:09:13Lloreanbluebrother: Me too.
23:09:18pixelmaNico_P: if it's only on hwcodec then probably not I've been told
23:09:39Lloreanandrewg867: What conditions would it have to be under to completely cut out?
23:10:00amiconnNico_P: The sim should segfault in this case. That is, if the tokenizer code doesn't behave different than on target
23:10:10mattzzLlorean: Thats a really nice idea!
23:10:29andrewg867Llorean: there is no built in shutdown feature that I know of (or described in the datasheet) if thats what you are asking
23:10:42Lloreanmattzz: Bitmap handling is fairly easy, patterns then don't require a special format, and people can open the Rockbox-mono logo and see what happens to it. :)
23:11:06Lloreanandrewg867: Well you said the sound completely cuts out for the timeout when it triggers. I more meant "what conditions cause this feature to trigger"
23:11:09mattzzor the wps...
23:11:22pearldiverlinuxstb just encoded a file at 29.97fps, it was out of sync after 1/3 way through it
23:11:35andrewg867Llorean: if the headphones make the headphone amp use too much current
23:11:36pearldiverwould forcing 25 or 24fps help it?
23:11:47amiconnLlorean: Jump scroll: When enabled, the text doesn't scroll pixel-wise (or character-wise on charcell), but in lcd-width chunks (reduced to match word boundaries if possible). It does this either for a selectable number of times (1 to 5), then switch to normal scrolling, or always instead of normal scrolling
23:11:52pearldiveror might help it, for that matter
23:12:04linuxstbpearldiver: Please test on a desktop video player - I would expect it to be an encoding issue. Assuming of course that you've enabled both Limit FPS and Skip Frames.
23:12:14andrewg867Llorean: and I don't think there is a way to change the current detection threshold eother
23:12:17Lloreanandrewg867: Is this likely under 'normal' use conditions, though?
23:12:21amiconnIt's currently *only* implemented for charcell (i.e. player). My new code doesn't do that yet. The settings are there, but they're ignored
23:12:34pearldiverlinuxstb yep, just test it, everything seems to be in order
23:12:43pearldiverso its not the encode
23:13:00amiconnI am planning to implement this for all targets with the "great scroll code unification"
23:13:07linuxstbpearldiver: Is Skip Frames enabled? The gigabeat isn't fast enough to display a 30fps file without skipping frames.
23:13:13Lloreanamiconn: I don't think it'd be too bad to have that disabled for the time being, then.
23:13:22amiconnBut for now it would be gone for player if I'd commit my changes now
23:13:27andrewg867Llorean: very much so, if you put on a loud song and don't turn down the volume then the over-current protection will cut in and 'help' with the situation
23:13:34pearldiverlinuxstb i think skip frames was OFF
23:13:35amiconnI think it's not good to accumulate too many changes
23:13:54*bluebrother agrees on this
23:13:57amiconnLlorean: If you see how it looks, build a player sim
23:14:15pearldiverlinuxstb let me test it with skip frames ON
23:14:23amiconnbluebrother: Yeah, especially since my experience of almost-data-loss
23:14:54bluebrotheralmost-data-loss is horrifying

23:15:09*bluebrother remembers to setup a good backup strategy and system
23:15:46amiconnYeah, it was pure luck that the hdd didn't go completely bad at once
23:15:50Lloreanandrewg867: Can you trigger it with the player at 0dB, and a song replaygained to prevent clipping?
23:16:18pixelmaNico_P: I'm currently compiling a tokenizer build for my M5 - it it crashes in the same situation, then a swcodec sim most probably will do the same
23:16:27pearldiverlinuxstb yes, skip frames ON solves it
23:16:48bluebrotherI had a similar thing some years ago ... the hdd wouldn't spin up. Luckily I managed to get it spin up once again by hitting it a couple of times
23:17:02pearldiverlinuxstb so whats the more rational option, force 24fps or skip the frames?
23:17:03LloreanPercussive maintenance at its finest.
23:17:17Nico_Ppixelma: ok, I'll look into it a bit later this evening
23:17:40amiconnOne of the next steps of my rework (hopefully happening next week) will probably make JdGordon (and other ui devs) happy: charcell code will have lcd_update(), making it even more similar to bitmap code
23:17:43linuxstbpearldiver: You have other options - encode at a lower bitrate and/or a lower resolution.
23:18:15 Part zeth
23:18:16amiconnNo more red builds due to forgotten #ifdef HAVE_LCD_BITMAP around lcd_update() ;)
23:18:23linuxstbpearldiver: But you should always enable skip frames - you'll soon notice if mpegplayer needs to skip too many, and that's your cue to re-encode.
23:18:24pearldiverlinuxstb im using the vlc bat file
23:18:34bluebrothersounds great
23:18:36amiconn...and considerably more straightforward handling, also in the sim
23:18:54andrewg867Llorean: the sansa headphone amp actually goes to 1dB but thats beside the point, I am not really that knowledgable in that area so I'm probably the wrong one to ask
23:19:23andrewg867I normally only play with hardware and see what I can do with it, not too much in the software side ;)
23:20:16Bagder11 gsoc applications and counting...
23:20:42Lloreanandrewg867: Basically, I'm just trying to figure out what conditions this 'safety feature' is meant to prevent. I've not heard the cutouts in the music at all, for example, or the strange distortions.
23:21:06Lloreanandrewg867: So I was wondering if it fit 'normal use' or if it aligned with what would be 'abusive' to the headphones anyway.
23:21:23 Part nls
23:21:38SlickireBadger: Hi, how many GSoC applications are you accepting?
23:21:38andrewg867with the current svn state, the developer whe first created the driver (name slipped my mind) intentionally made the gain lower to preven to over-current clipping
23:22:12BagderSlickire: as many as possible, but I recon 4-5 is maximum
23:22:39pearldiverlinuxstb mpegplayer doesn't have problems with lower audio bitrates, does it?
23:22:47pearldiverlinuxstb like 96 or 64
23:22:52linuxstbIt shouldn't...
23:22:56andrewg867and the distortion will only happen if you increase the volume too much, right now with the settings I am using now I can turn it up to about -9dB without distortion but is still pretty loud
23:23:09linuxstbpearldiver: But the samplerate must be 44.1KHz.
23:23:33SlickireBagder: ah rite. I have just started looking into applying for it, what are you looking for in the applications?
23:24:00BagderSlickire: a good idea for the project, and a good idea on how to implement it
23:24:23Bagderpossibly also get a feeling if the person seems to have the means to pull it through
23:24:27Lloreanandrewg867: People were reporting distortion on various locations even with the reduced gain though. I'm just being cautious because we already have one person claiming we blew out his headphones on the Sansa (although he's got no evidence other than 'they stopped working after I'd been using my Sansa')

23:32:14scorchelinuxstb: which link do you use to get to the archopen sources?...they all give me a 404
23:32:28Bagderbluebrother: ok, thanks for testing
23:32:35linuxstbscorche: I got them via svn/cvs
23:32:42linuxstb(whichever they are using...)
23:32:58scorcheah...alright...that is the one method i somehow forgot about...
23:33:33andrewg867Llorean: I doubt you would be able to blow any headphones with the headphone amp in this thing, it is only 40mW per channel with 16ohm or 20mW per channel with 32ohm headpones
23:34:22Lloreanandrewg867: Any idea why the feature exists then?

23:39:09Blastamy video ipod recently stopped responding to being plugged in, then once it's had a while, like days, to lie around doing nothing it'll respond to that again and charge, then operate like normal for a day or two then go back in to coma
23:39:52Blastai tried restoring the apple software the other day, and that seemed to continue working fine after several days of not-real-use, so i formated and reinstalled rockbox on it
23:39:55 Quit nerve (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
23:40:29Blastaeverything seemed to work fine, filetransfers even went faster, but after using it for about 1 hour last night and spending the night in my jacket pocket, it's now dead again :(
23:41:01 Quit Baw|lappy ()
23:41:06pearldiverlinuxstb still losing sync 2/3 in
23:41:13Blastai suspect some kind of hardware failure, but i have no idea how to check for this on a ipod
23:41:59Blastait's still under warranty, but i don't want to send it in and then get it back with them saying nothing is wrong
23:42:48Blastathere was an issue with a friend fumbling with connecting the cable to it, and he is notorious for breaking stuff you would think unbreakable, but nothing appears to be wrong when i look at another ipod compared to mine
23:43:17pearldiverlinuxstb will force 25fps now instead of 29.97fps

23:43:34andrewg867Llorean: maybe to make AustriaMicrosystems look good? ;P
23:44:18Blastapearldiver: ?
23:44:39linuxstbBlasta: Do you experience the same problem when running the Apple firmware?
23:44:54pearldiverBlasta oh we're talking about fps rates for the mpegplayer
23:45:20Lloreanandrewg867: Could there be a settings option for disabling that feature, or would we have to do so at boot?
23:45:20linuxstbpearldiver: How long is your video?
23:45:29pearldiverlinuxstb about 23 minutes
23:45:33XavierGrheh mpegplayer plays too fast on the sim
23:45:35pixelmaNico_P: M5 doesn't crash and the Ondio-FM-sims debug menu is missing a lot of things :(
23:45:40Soap29.97 -> 25 will give the appearance of skipping (most likely) as inverse-tele should go to 23.976
23:45:41XavierGr(even with fram limit set to on)
23:46:01Soapshould cause roughly one duplicated frame per second?
23:46:02Blastalinuxstb: it didn't appear to happen after i just plugged it in and charged it a little and let it run out of battery while playing. then it responded fine again. but so it did with rockbox installed the previous week, then stopped working again
23:46:04pearldiverlinuxstb trying 25fps now with skip frames OFF
23:46:10pearldiverlooks good so far
23:46:19linuxstbpearldiver: There's no reason to disable skip frames.
23:46:40linuxstbXavierGr: It works fine in the sim for me...
23:46:48Blastaguess i'll wait for it to come back to life again and restore it and try it out for a few days... the default soundquality is just so abhoringly bad :(
23:46:59XavierGrlinuxstb: strange let me try it again then
23:47:06andrewg867Llorean: if you can help me with the menu option making/global setting then sure :)
23:47:20XavierGrjust got a segfault in the sim :\
23:47:24linuxstbXavierGr: Is the audio playing at the correct speed? The video should be synced to the audio.
23:47:41linuxstbXavierGr: Yes, I don't think removing threads is supported in the sim.
23:47:54linuxstbSo mpegplayer always segfaults when you stop it.
23:48:11XavierGrlinuxstb: on the test I just had audio was at normal speed though video was running quite faster
23:48:34linuxstbAnd you're sure the Limit Frames option was enabled?
23:48:42 Quit mattzz ("Leaving")
23:48:55XavierGrlinuxstb: yeah, I already checked it 3 times .... strange
23:49:13Nico_Ppixelma: at what point exactly did the crash occur ?
23:49:27Nico_Pparsing ? displaying ?
23:49:57linuxstbXavierGr: And does the file play OK in other video players?
23:51:02XavierGrlinuxstb: it is a video I encoded at 10fps it seems to play fine on target and my pc but let me check on something again
23:51:14 Part toffe82
23:51:48Blastahm i managed to get life into it with the select-menu hodling down for ages, now it's charging and saying it has "very low battery"
23:51:54pearldiverlinuxstb losing sync at 25fps as well, same thing about 2/3 in
23:52:03Blastabut it was only used for about 60 minutes last night and then spent the night turned off
23:52:19pixelmaNico_P: when I start music playback and it should display the WPS - initially I just wondered what is displayed for a split second in the place where the tags belong...
23:52:20Blasta(this right now is while it's plugged in) so i guess dead battery?
23:52:40linuxstbpearldiver: If you enable "show fps", is it displaying 25.0 (or something close) ?
23:52:46pearldiverlinuxstb, its not drastic though but really visable
23:53:13pearldiverlinuxstb, 24.9
23:53:37LloreanBlasta: The low-battery warning thing is actually most commonly a bug in the iPod hardware. Charge it for a bit, then use Menu+Select while it's still plugged in to reboot it.
23:53:49linuxstbpearldiver: But it's fine on a PC?
23:54:05pearldiverlinuxstb, perfect
23:54:08andrewg867argh the auto change directory is broken
23:54:19andrewg867worked fine before the 'random' option addition
23:54:43linuxstbpearldiver: Can you upload it somewhere?
23:54:56XavierGrlinuxstb: with frame limiting it does indeed go slower but still quite faster than the original
23:55:03BlastaLloren: so you're saying that now after it's charged for a bit, i should unplug, then use menu-select to reboot it? and this is different from just normal poweroff?
23:56:14LloreanBlasta: I said to do it while it's still plugged in.
23:56:20XavierGrlinuxstb: maybe it has to do with the fps of the video (which is encoded at 10)?
23:56:40Lloreanandrewg867: Broken with random disabled?
23:56:41pearldiverlinuxstb its 100mb, is that ok?
23:56:42BlastaLlorean: ah yea, sorry, late at night, eyes not working properly
23:57:06andrewg867Llorean: the whole thing is broken, even when set to yes it doesn't work
23:57:19SoapXavierGr: what program is giving you the option to do 10fps?
23:57:22linuxstbpearldiver: That's fine with me.
23:57:37pearldiverlinuxstb ok, will do
23:57:57XavierGrSoap: mplayer check the wiki
23:57:58Lloreanandrewg867: When you set it to yes, you also have to run the setup plugin
23:58:00XavierGrvery nice tool
23:58:28andrewg867Llorean: setup plugin?
23:58:36web-taz2is it normal, that the themes which come along with the daily build are not shown right ?
23:58:43andrewg867I didn't have to do anything else prevously
23:58:51SoapXavierGr: 10fps is not a legal MPEG2 framerate. Many programs will do pseudo-10, but it's really 30fps internally with tripple duplicated frames.
23:58:57linuxstbweb-taz2: Did you install the fonts?
