#rockbox log for 2007-03-28

00:00:24bluebrotherCurunir: there is information in the wiki and forum about this
00:00:30Soul-SlayerThere's a guide on the wiki or the manual on how to use the tagnavi
00:00:48bluebrotherbut usually it would be better to create a new one called tagnavi_custom.config
00:01:01bluebrotheras that won't get overwritten when installing a new build
00:01:18Curunirsoul-slayer: where in the wiki can I find it?
00:01:28bluebrotherthe DataBase page
00:04:13saratogawe really need to bother people to update the AMS wiki page
00:04:27saratogathey gave us a fair amount of help, and we don't even mention it
00:04:59Moosjust the "normal" documentation ;)
00:05:42bluebrotherdepends on how much "help" you consider what they did.
00:06:14bluebrotherquite some people thing releasing data sheet should be done by every company and isn't any kind of active help
00:06:56linuxstbsaratoga: They've given us very little to compared to all the other companies who make all their datasheets available for download on their website as a matter of policy....
00:07:32saratogadidn't they hand out dev boards?
00:07:34linuxstbsaratoga: And it's been commented that they even made us go to their offices and pick them up...
00:07:49bluebrotherof course someone could add information about the process and leave the distinguision to the reader

00:26:40H10_007quickQuestion: If some of the targets always have red (errors) how do people use them?
00:27:29linuxstbH10_007quick: They're not completely red - only "rombox" (Rockbox running from flash ROM) is broken on those targets. Normal Rockbox loaded from disk is fine.
00:27:42Kalthare...Actually, now the midi plugin data-aborts at startup. Okay, never mind then.
00:28:05linuxstbKaltare: It shouldn't do that...
00:28:11H10_007quickOh, but it shows at the bottom that it didn't make the build
00:29:08H10_007quickmake[1]: Target `all' not remade because of errors.
00:29:09H10_007quickmake: *** [all] Error 2
00:29:11H10_007quickThat is what it shows at the end: leads me to belevie that it was a failed build
00:29:23linuxstbYes, parts failed...
00:29:47H10_007quickSo is a build still made even with errors?
00:29:52bluebrotherif a build fails it won't be useable
00:30:08H10_007quickthat is what I thought
00:30:12bluebrotherso users will have to wait for someone to fix it or use an archived build
00:30:26Kaltharelinuxstb: whenever I try to play a midi on the build I just did, I get "Data abort at 0004FC4C".
00:30:29Soul-SlayerOr make it ignoring errors.
00:30:35H10_007quickbut some of the targets always have the same error
00:30:43Soul-SlayerAnd aslong as you aren't using a part of it that errors, you're okay

01:12:42SoapIt allows you to set the margins in which a line scrolls in a WPS. Stock behavior is a full line scrolling or not. This allows a subset of a line to scroll. Old patch, always going out of sync. I _think_ I synced it right - but "who knows"? ;)

02:06:32countrymikeis there a way to add notes/comments to issues in the bug tracker?

02:20:12Soapto answer your question directly Moos. It offers performance improvements on linux. I don't know if it does through cygwin.

02:23:14n17ikh|Lappye.g. the case sizes vary by x amount
02:23:21n17ikh|Lappythickness, etc
02:23:46Soapmost of the thickness differences are due to single vs dual platter.
02:23:49Moosscorche: no new packages? (I have no new one need in head)
02:24:31scorcheMoos: no reason to update if it isnt needed
02:25:02n17ikh|LappyI guess there's no such thing as a single platter 60gb drive?
02:25:13Moosscorche: maybe new usufull one that you can think about and that we missed...
02:25:33Soapn17ikh|Lappy: 40GB is the largest that I know of.

02:32:07BiGRED84Hello i have another question, although it is not completely related to rockbox, my h10 20gb does run rockbox, and i also know that people over at rockbox know alittle bit about my problem
02:32:22scorchewell, this is #rockbox...
02:32:57BiGRED84yes i know, my problem is that it seems there is a coruppted file in the system folder on my h10
02:33:21BiGRED84*sorry about missing a '#'
02:34:30BiGRED84i found this out because my h10 was acting wierd when i browsed the root of the device on the computer, when ever i got to the system folder the h10 would freeze and i would have to reboot it and reconnect it to the computer
02:35:36BiGRED84so i went to windows disk defragmentor and selected analize device and it said there is a corupted file in the system folder and that defragmentatiopn vould not continue

04:58:08jhulsttoffe82: You around?
04:58:34safetydanIs it actually having problems reading the filenames or are you just talking about displaying them? If it's just the display, try a font with unicode characters.

06:19:56LloreanAlonea: That statement, on its own, doesn't tell any of us much of anything.
06:20:04LloreanAlonea: "the .bat from the wiki" is a very, very vague statement
06:21:59Aloneaoh, sorry. the .bat file for VLC on the wiki that will convert video files. I have been using a program called SmartRIpper to make one .vob and been doing the same for each file and it has worked fine since I started using it. Now when I try the use the .bat file I get the whole windowsVLC media playe rhas encountered a problem...
06:24:13LloreanAlonea: In that case you should be seeking support for VLC, since it's VLC that's having issues.
06:25:04Aloneaah. ok. just seeing if anyone knew. I will just use another program or something.
06:25:17LloreanVLC never did that to me, but I've recently moved to WinFF
06:25:44LloreanIt doesn't have the quirks VLC is (if the video framerate is invalid, it's much more likely to just pick a valid one than wait 10 minutes and then give you a file with no video stream)

06:49:03breihanjthat sounds suspiciously like hard drive
06:49:10breihanjas in a different model for each drive
06:49:20toffe82and on yours jhulst ?
06:49:30breihanj(my bad, long day)
06:49:52breihanjwow ok, i swear it's right this time. DVP-HD0003
06:49:54jhulstSorry, mine is a DVP-HD0004
06:50:05breihanjthey only had a 30gig and a 60 gig model
06:50:11jhulstmine is the 60 gig
06:50:20breihanjperhaps there are multiple 30gig models
06:51:08toffe82if you want to be able to use your hd outside the zen to copy file, you have to buy the corresponding interface
06:51:11breihanjso i've slid up the lock on the connector, it seems like this cable slides on metal rails of some kind and might be soldered
06:51:21breihanjyeah, i found one at that has the hard drive part number
06:51:55toffe82for the one with female interface , it is easy just look for external case for toshiba 1.8" , it cost about 10$ on ebay
06:52:36breihanj pretty sure this is the drive in hulst's model
06:53:03breihanji haven't gotten this cable off
06:53:22breihanjdoes it lift up at an angle?
06:53:31breihanjit looks like it might
06:53:33toffe82breihanj: this one is ok but you have to connect it to the ide bus, check this one
06:53:36breihanji believe it's a female plug
06:53:45breihanjide bus is fine
06:54:05breihanji'm going to run dd on this thing so either ide or usb mass storage works, ide probably works better as long as i don't fry everything :)

06:56:54breihanjdo all toshiba MK series drives use the same interface as hitachi's zif drives ?
06:56:55toffe82you should have on the connector itself a little lock (black )
06:57:11ptw419i think some may be ide
06:57:15webguest59I need help, my rockbox doesnt go into disk mode, nor is it being seen by my computer. I got an iPod Video, with latest rockbox firmware from site, and I use Mac OS 10.4.9
06:57:15toffe82the zif interface is standard
06:57:24breihanjdo you have a picture you can link me of this lock?
06:57:38breihanji see black plastic on the side of my cable (it's got a white plug so it's easy to see the interface)
06:58:00breihanjit seems like the black plastic is attached to the board somehow
06:58:26toffe82so toshiba and hitachi use the same, the onluy thing is that they are reverse , if the toshiba is connected with the sticker on top, the hitachi would be with sticker on the bottom
06:58:35breihanji folded a metal sliver thing up that was behind my cable's plug
06:58:40breihanjcoming from the side of the board

07:02:09breihanjthat toshiba drive that ptw419 linked does not use the same interface
07:02:14ptw419thats an ide
07:02:16breihanji have the adapter for that though
07:02:19ptw419this is a zif drive
07:02:20breihanjgot it from
07:02:26toffe82yes it is the one with female connector
07:02:31ptw419what is the model number of the hd?
07:02:53breihanjthis one is a hitachi travelstar, model c4k60-30
07:03:03breihanjit has the ce (zif) connector
07:03:07breihanjit's a hitachi zif connector though
07:03:09breihanjit's not as wide
07:03:18breihanjand doesn't have those plastic things sticking out on the side
07:03:25toffe82you see on hte picture the zif connector on the top ?
07:03:29breihanjit's a 50 pin
07:03:43breihanjyeah that looks like it
07:03:43ptw419its 1.8?
07:03:51ptw4191.8" i mean?
07:03:58breihanjptw419: correct. apparently there are a bunch of different connectors on 1.8
07:04:05toffe82it is white and there is a black part, this is the lock you just lift the loc
07:04:15toffe82and the cable goes out
07:04:52breihanji have some embarrassingly fuzzy pictures taken with an old digital camera
07:05:08jhulstbreihanj: I don't think your zif connector was a big as the one linked to by ptw419 though is it?
07:05:20jhulstIs there a smaller zif adapter size?
07:05:30breihanjno, it's smaller
07:05:34breihanjit is definitely smaller
07:05:39toffe82no it is standard on the hd 1.8"
07:05:39breihanjand has two adapters for 1.8
07:05:41breihanjone is the ipod size
07:05:45breihanjone is smaller

07:07:11breihanjthis thing is about 1 inch long

07:07:23***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
07:07:27breihanj~3 cm
07:07:51toffe82it is the standard zif interface
07:08:06breihanjit's not the interface ptw419 linked
07:08:16breihanjthat one is a lot wider
07:08:29breihanji would say this one is only about 60% as wide
07:08:54ptw419yeah the one at span says its compatible for the hitachi model you have
07:09:16ptw419it says in the red print. but you should look for a better one
07:09:52breihanjthat's the same series drive i have
07:10:04breihanjnotice they've got this ribbon cable that goes between the adapter and the drive
07:10:14breihanjbut it's way smaller than the toshiba one
07:10:21 Quit dj-fu ("Leaving")
07:10:45toffe82it is the same
07:11:10breihanjthe "icy box" model is the same connector as the adapter?
07:11:49toffe82i think that the hitachi has the connector on the largest side of the drive and the hitachi on the smaller side
07:12:13breihanji don't see a plastic lock
07:12:36ptw419toffie does this adapter a zif connector?
07:12:50toffe82check were is going the flat cable on the hard drive
07:13:46breihanjthe problem with that link is that many hitachi drives have an ata connector
07:13:54breihanjbut the ones used in consumer electronics have the zif connector
07:14:21breihanjptw419: that specific adapter does not have the right connector
07:14:34toffe82ptw419: this one has a female connector so it should be for an hitachi drive with male connector
07:15:48toffe82to resume : you have 3 type of connector, male (hitachi), female (toshiba, zif (hitachi and toshiba0
07:16:21breihanji definitely have a hitachi zif but i read online that there were different types of zif
07:16:37toffe82where ?
07:16:46jhulstouch $30 shipping alone for the icy box one
07:16:49breihanjnot sure it was reputable
07:17:03breihanjjhulst: from iconuk?
07:17:20jhulstPlus the $30 for the adapter alone
07:17:23ptw419mine cost $50

07:17:30toffe82mine 60
07:17:36toffe82with shipping
07:17:36breihanji don't mind swapping ide cables, just nervous about frying/breaking things
07:17:55breihanji am shipping to texas
07:18:06toffe82just never disconnect the hard drive with power on
07:18:21jhulsttoffe82: So you are pretty sure the icy box one will work for our hard drive?
07:18:51toffe82if it is has the zif yes
07:19:23toffe82you can check the pin out of the zif on the toshiba and on the hitachi, it is the same
07:20:06breihanjdo these cables go in at an angle
07:20:22breihanjit sounds like they go in straight
07:20:48breihanjthis one i have looks like it went straight down or at an angle
07:20:55breihanjlike vertically down into a connector
07:20:57breihanjor at an angle
07:21:04breihanjman, this is a really bad description.
07:21:34breihanjthe way this white part of the cable goes into the connector
07:21:43breihanjthere's no way it could fit in straight
07:21:45breihanji think
07:21:50breihanji wish i could get a picture of this
07:21:57toffe82no , the connector is flat , it can not go down, it goes parallel to the board
07:22:12breihanji'm gonna try with the webcam
07:22:31toffe82but once you lift the lock, the cable goes out with no pb

07:26:36breihanjwow this is a bad graphic
07:26:41jhulstptw419: That is a different hard drive then what is in breihanjs player, it almost looks likes that one is an IDE interface
07:27:14breihanjthat is a different drive
07:27:31breihanji definitely don't have pins like that coming out of the board
07:27:44jhulstbreihanj: how long ago did you get your player?
07:27:50breihanjvery recently
07:28:03breihanji bought it in october
07:28:07breihanjoff of amazon
07:28:15breihanjthis was after the 60gig model came out
07:28:52jhulstI wonder if they changed hard drives when the 60 was released, to standardize them
07:29:00breihanjyes that guy has the same drive
07:29:03breihanjthat's the cable i'm trying to get off
07:29:07ptw419wait thats the W
07:29:08breihanji mean, he has the same series
07:29:13breihanjbut the 60gig rather than the 30
07:29:19breihanjunfortunately, he doesn't have a good pic of the connector
07:29:50toffe82this one is zif connector
07:30:29ptw419this page is talking about the zen vision W
07:30:33ptw419but it uses the same hd
07:30:41breihanjyes, it is the same series hd with the same connector
07:31:00ptw419it also mentions the same zif adapter you were looking at earlier
07:31:02breihanjbut he doesn't say how to remove the creative cable
07:31:43ptw419the flat cable?
07:32:22ptw419"Step 6) In order to remove the hard drive, peel back the tape covering the ZIF socket and gently unplug it."
07:32:33toffe82are you sure that they are the same model, the board is different ??
07:32:44ptw419usually u pull back the zif connector and hte cable slips out
07:32:52toffe82lift the lock
07:33:25breihanji'm not sure which tape he is referring to
07:34:25breihanji think he's talking about tape over the zif socket on the board, not on the hard drive
07:35:13ptw419it may be in a different place or not there at all, since this hardware is probably different and in a different configuration for this model
07:35:24ptw419but the idea is still the same
07:36:10breihanjdo you have a link to what the connector looks like missing the cable ?
07:36:28toffe82I think that on the board it is not a zif connector
07:37:16breihanjyeah, i mean the one on the board is a different type from on the hard drive
07:37:27breihanjbut by zif i mean it just slides on and off
07:37:40breihanjthe ribbon cable doesn't seem to slide on and off easily from the hd

07:40:15ptw419toffe would it damage it if they were to gently pull out the cable?
07:40:29breihanjit wouldn't come out
07:40:35breihanjbecause the white piece goes in to the connector
07:40:48breihanji need a better picture
07:41:33breihanjthe white part is from the cable
07:41:37breihanjthe black part comes from the hd
07:41:45aliaskbreihanj: Is that from the Zen?
07:41:45breihanjthe white part actually sticks outward inside of the black connector
07:41:56breihanjso it's impossible to pull out, it seems like it must lift up or something

07:42:24aliaskYeah, I know the connection you are talking about. You're right, it's hard to explain
07:42:44breihanjit's like an inverted d-shape
07:42:57breihanjthe only thing i could think is that it rocks up at an angle or comes straight up

08:22:11breihanji'm testing writing some data to this
08:22:26breihanji don't really get this 1 2 3 thing
08:23:39ptw419on the schematic where its labeled at 1,2, and 3. it right around there it looks like a outlined lever
08:24:06ptw419right below #2
08:24:12breihanji don't see a lever really
08:24:30breihanjit looks like that lever is internal
08:24:34breihanjand has to be pried or something
08:25:05ptw419and the schematic has #3 labeled as an actuator
08:25:51ptw419yeah it might be something different
08:26:18breihanjit looks similar
08:26:25breihanjbut i don't see the actuator mechanism
08:27:33ptw419this look more specific :
08:29:06breihanji can't really see into the drive much
08:29:25breihanjbut i see how the mechanism could unlock and lock
08:29:35breihanjthat would explain why the white cable is doing the inverted d and looks like it can't come out
08:29:51breihanjif the mechanism moved it would lock and unlock and you could just drop the cable in

09:22:20pondlifeBoost % per thread?
09:22:21Slasherihowever, cpu usage is harder because cpu can be boosted at times
09:22:29markunSlasheri: do we have some way of timing that accurate?
09:22:31Slasherithat's difficult to implement
09:22:48JdGordonbut not so easy to display..... remember if we allow the lines to scrol in the debug screen we cant update the thread names properly
09:23:15Slasherimarkun: we can approximate that, it doesn't need to be so exact
09:23:16pondlifeShort and cryptic thread names then

09:23:52pondlifeJdGordon: Urgh - I'd be happy to view only
09:24:03markunSlasheri: one of the reasons for wanting this feature is because the Gigabeat doesn't boost, so I can't tell how well everything runs.
09:24:12Slasheripreglow: hmm, maybe true. but then the whole debug menu should be drop for normal builds
09:24:47preglowalso a point, heh
09:25:00preglowbut some parts of it are nice for error diagnostics
09:25:02pondlifeI kind of agree, but it can be useful diagnosing user problems
09:25:18preglowkilling a thread doesn't really help with that
09:25:49Slasheriyou never know :)
09:26:03markunSlasheri: so, do you think you will give this a try when you have some time?
09:26:18Slasherifor example if codec thread would have some problem and it's eating almost all cpu, killing that would help
09:26:32Slasherimarkun: i think so
09:26:52markunok, thanks
09:27:03pondlifeCodec thread shouldn't have such a problem.. and it might make the UI unusable anyway
09:27:08JdGordonSlasheri: this stuff should only be compiled for logf builds imo
09:27:45Slasheripondlife: but any thread could have such an issue. And killing threads one by one, one might be able to debug that better :)
09:28:05SlasheriJdGordon: that sounds better

09:47:28midgeyJdGordon: ok
09:47:53preglowpondlife: if we start messing with bitfields and stuff, gcc has to mask out the values it needs when reading and writing, that code will use more space than you gained in the struct itself

10:32:09tucozbut you could set a environment variable in the makefiles to do this as well iirc. Like SHELL=/bin/bash . Am i right?
10:37:21 Quit midgey ()
10:44:58bluebrothertucoz: hi
10:45:37tucozi think the guy with the sokoban changes runs ubuntu so i just wanted to answer him
10:45:42bluebrotherit's SHELL iirc
10:46:56tucozbut i guess we should add the SHELL variable to the Makefiles in any case. Especially since Ubuntu is one of the most popular distributions now
10:47:23bluebrotherthat dash thing can get quite annoying :(
10:47:40bluebrothermaybe I should setup an ubuntu box in a virtual machine and test myself
10:48:00linuxstbDidn't we discuss this in the past and come up with a solution? I just forget what that solution was...
10:48:00 Quit miepchen^schlaf (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
10:48:02bluebrotherbut the scripts should be dash-safe afaik.
10:48:28bluebrotherI think the solution was "make the scripts not rely on bash"
10:48:47bluebrotherunless they explicitly point to bash
10:49:12tucozit was bash's echo that was the problem i think
10:50:30tucozI think we should add the shell variable to the Makefiles.
10:51:01linuxstbDoes the manual build require Perl?
10:51:26tucozOr could we perhaps do some magic in the configure script? like check for bash?
10:51:46tucozlinuxstb, yes. the credits section, at least, require perl
10:52:03linuxstbThen maybe use perl instead of echo?
10:52:25tucozThe standard rockbox builds also require perl, right?
10:52:42linuxstbYes, I'm sure they do.
10:52:54XavierGranyone feeling to fix the annoying filetype string buffer splash in H100 boot?
10:53:05linuxstbe.g. - to make the final zip file
10:53:26tucozthen we do not have to rely on shell, but on perl, and that is better imo
10:53:40XavierGrapps/filetypes.c line 59 (probably needs increasing the #define STRING_BUFFER_SIZE)
10:53:58linuxstbWell, Perl will be slower than a the shell, but IIRC, it's just one place we need to swap echo with perl.
10:53:59bluebrotherwasn't configure perl too?
10:54:09linuxstbNo, configure is a shell script.
10:54:20bluebrotherah, ok. Then I mixed it up
10:54:35*bluebrother starts to remember the issue
10:55:07linuxstbXavierGr: What do you increase it to?
10:55:32preglowoh, how i hate linux audio editors
10:56:29linuxstbXavierGr: I don't understand that code at all - any idea what information it's storing in that buffer?
10:59:58bluebrothersome extension - file icon - viewer mapping
11:00:03bluebrotherdon't know the details though
11:00:56linuxstbI wonder if it could be allocated from the audio buffer, instead of statically...
11:01:24bluebrothersounds reasonable.
11:01:46lexdo you have any idea why my rockbox freezes after i reboot it again after the first boot
11:01:51lexit just freezes into the splash screen
11:01:53JdGordonlinuxstb: doing that means you slow down the boot...
11:02:20lexand yes, i'm using the official build
11:02:27tucozbluebrother, linuxstb, i added a bug report so that we remember it :)

12:10:29BigBambi(just curious!)
12:11:55JdGordonBigBambi: it requires SELECT before SELECT|REL because witout it, that action would be triggered when select is released after a long press... which isnt wanted
12:12:27LloreanJdGordon: That reminds me, long-press of Power on the gigabeat seems to do the same thing as Right or Select in the filetree
12:12:37LloreanJdGordon: on release, that is.
12:12:54markunLlorean: quite anoying :)
12:12:57LloreanJdGordon: It's rare that you release it, since it would normally shut down the player, but at the moment it's also mapped Power+Up/Down for pageup/pagedown
12:13:10BigBambiaha - thanks very much, that makes sense. Anyway, as I am just swapping two buttons I'll just copy what is already there :) I'll also stick a patch up for any others who are annoyed by the inconsistency between gigabeat and H1x0
12:13:13LloreanSo when you page to a file, on release, you activate the file
12:16:04JdGordonLlorean: most probably because of what i just explained :p
12:16:13JdGordonfix the prereq and you should be set
12:16:36LloreanJdGordon: Release of play should never invoke a file no matter what comes before it. :-P
12:16:40JdGordonanyone know how the enigma machine works? I need to code it up, but my uni website is down :'(
12:16:42LloreanErr, release of Power
12:17:01*JdGordon points Llorean to apps/keymaps/keymap-gigabeat.c
12:17:42LloreanFine, fine. If nobody's done it by the time I've slept and can think clearly, and somebody reminds me, I'll try to knock out a slightly nicer keymap for the gigabeat.
12:17:56linuxstbI'm not sure how the gigabeat and h1x0 can be consistent - the h1x0 has PLAY/PAUSE/POWER, STOP and A-B, the gigabeat has POWER, MENU and A....
12:18:02LloreanAnyone mind if I try to make the button behaviour slightly more similar to the H100/iPod equivalent buttons?
12:18:32Lloreanlinuxstb: Power is Stop on the H120
12:18:49linuxstbIt is?
12:19:06BigBambilinuxstb: the buttons are in the same place though, and so it is much more natural to use the same ones
12:19:12LloreanSo you have Power=Stop, A=Play/Pause, and Menu=A-B
12:19:14markunwell, just switch A and POWER and I will be a lot happier already
12:19:28BigBambiI don't think select is any more natural to use select for pause than power
12:19:38markunBigBambi: I think that's just lazynes in your part to get used to a different button layout :)
12:19:40BigBambiand it is only in the WPS that the two are swapped relative to the H1x0
12:19:48Lloreanmarkun: That's mainly my suggestion. Switching A and Power, and making "A" resume playback, and the center of the cross take you out of the WPS when you tap it.
12:20:02markunLlorean: I don't agree with that last change
12:20:06linuxstbLlorean: "stop" seems to work as "stop" on my h1x0
12:20:14Lloreanlinuxstb: Yes, and hold it down for 4 seconds

12:20:26BigBambibrb: fire alarm
12:20:36Lloreanmarkun: The H100 and the iPod use the "Select" button to get rid of the WPS so you see the filetree again.

12:26:30BigBambiXavierGr: If you like me are using H1x0 then gigabeat I gurantee you will find it annoying, especially as they are only swapped in some places, not all
12:26:49Lloreanmarkun: I just don't see the benefit of mimicing the original firmware. "Play" resumes playback. It makes sense that it invokes the WPS when it does this
12:26:56XavierGrmarkun: so the center buttons doesn't select or bring the context menu?
12:26:57LloreanSo, it should also invoke the WPS if playback is already running.
12:27:07LloreanAnd it should resume playback if the WPS is running, but music is paused
12:27:19BigBambiLlorean: completely agree :)
12:27:19markunLlorean: yes, I agree that it's logical for the H1xx
12:27:33BigBambimarkun: it is also logical for gigabeat imo
12:27:51markunbut the Gigabeat doesn't have a play button
12:27:58XavierGrI will have to agree that it will be a bit akward for H100 users at least to have the same button to do different things on both targets
12:28:04Lloreanmarkun: Yes, but that doesn't mean we can't just make the A button be "Play"
12:28:08markunIt's not the same button
12:28:16Lloreanmarkun: Just because you're lacking a button labelled "Play" doesn't mean it can't do the function.
12:28:28BigBambiSo why not at least be consistent with which one it is as llorean said. Whichever button you choose as play, make it at least self consistent
12:28:50Lloreanmarkun: Why is it beneficial to have the gigabeat be contrary to most of the other software codec targets?
12:29:18markunI just think it's a good button layout, regardless of what the other targets do
12:29:18LloreanIt could just be that I'm missing your point as to why it should be that way
12:29:46markunI think it's strange to leave the WPS with select and enter it again with A
12:29:50BigBambimarkun - it'd be equally good with power and select swapped in the wps and would be consistent with other targets
12:29:55Lloreanmarkun: And I don't think it's a good one. So, that's preference vs. preference. Now bring out objective reasoning.
12:30:37Lloreanmarkun: Leaving the WPS with select allows you to insert/queue songs starting from the WPS without ever removing your thumb from the cross.
12:30:43XavierGrllorean do you have a gigeabeat?
12:30:47LloreanXavierGr: Yes
12:31:01Lloreanmarkun: It makes navigation significantly easier one-handed.
12:31:04XavierGrthen I guess you know what you are talking about those keymaps :P
12:31:27LloreanXavierGr: I had to learn a new keymap by experimentation when I first picked up the gigabeat because it was different from the other swcodecs.
12:31:41LloreanThere aren't many differences, but they're just significant enough to cause a small amount of confusion at first.
12:31:54XavierGryes It would have been pretty strange if you are used to the other targets

12:37:43LloreanFinding the center of the cross, I can easily trigger those on accident.

12:40:06XavierGrdon't you get confused by it?
12:40:28JdGordonanyone know what the purpose of filetypes.c is?
12:41:00markunXavierGr: I didn't use my iriver for quite a while after we had sound on the Gigabeat
12:41:01XavierGrto store supported filetypes on viewers.config and know which files are under which category I guess
12:41:16XavierGr(like supported, music etc)
12:42:04XavierGrmarkun: try to use your H100 after all this time and then you might see what Llorean and BigBambi say about it
12:42:15LloreanXavierGr: It's really not that confusing, overall
12:42:36LloreanBut I think the benefits of keeping it consistent are real, plus as I mentioned, right now feeling blindly for a pause button can have bad side effects.
12:42:44BigBambiIt's OK, but I have to think about it. I press the wrong button, think, oh damn, then do it right
12:42:46XavierGrwell I would find myself pausing instead of going to browser after all this time with my H100
12:42:59BigBambiXavierGr: Yeah, I still do it all the time
12:43:06XavierGrthen curse a bit and then press the right button :)
12:43:10LloreanXavierGr: I did that for about the first week, and still do every now and then.
12:43:32XavierGrI still curse when I cancel settings by pressing left heh
12:43:57markunLlorean: btw, I was thinking that the side buttons don't need to be disabled with HOLD on, what do you think?
12:44:13markunThey are pretty hard to press
12:44:17Lloreanmarkun: I think all buttons should be disabled with hold on, as that's a common expectation of hold.
12:44:42Lloreanmarkun: Though I've lately been thinking that some targets could have a choice for hold

12:45:06Lloreanmarkun: Like, Gigabeat could be "All, Cross, None", and the Sansa could be "All, All but center, None"
12:45:23markunbtw, could the person updating the keymap also add volume control to the other screens?
12:45:48markunLlorean: Yes, something like that sounds good
12:46:19Lloreanmarkun: It definitely needs to default to "all", because most users are going to think something is broken if Hold doesn't hold all buttons, and file bug reports without checking the manual. :)
12:46:54LloreanBut on targets where hold is a software feature, I don't really see why it shouldn't be a _little_ bit flexible.
12:47:03BigBambiOK, very simple to line patch to swap power and select in the WPS
12:47:26BigBambiHopefully (it is my first ever and is likely to have loads of wrong line endings etc!)
12:48:32markunBigBambi: I think you will be anoyed by the A/POWER swap..
12:48:44LloreanBigBambi: I nothing's happened with it by the time I'm able to look at it this afternoon, I'll try to adapt it to have everything behave as I'd like/expect it (fix the page scrolling, maybe try to do the volume thing, etc)
12:48:45BigBambiMarkun: hugely
12:48:46JdGordonif a struct is only used in a single .c, should its definition be in that file? or in the .h?
12:48:57BigBambimarkun: feel free :)
12:49:21markunBigBambi: which button would you like to have as a stop button? Menu?
12:49:43MoosLlorean: we have already the "hold for keep backlight"...
12:50:15 Join inversions [0] (
12:50:32BigBambiMarkun: that be the same in terms of position as the H1x0, but the names might then be confusing to new users (not having menu as menu). I think with power and select the names don't do what they say anyway, so it doesn't matter
12:50:42 Quit Everybody| (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
12:51:18LloreanBigBambi: I think "Power" should do what "Stop" does on H120, center of cross should be "Navi", and 'A' should do what "Play/Pause" does on H120. Menu is, of course, A-B. :)
12:51:24BigBambiPersonally yes, I'd have menu as stop, but i'm not so worried about that. I could probably even get used to power and select being swapped if they weren't only different in some places not all
12:51:50 Quit JoeBorn (Connection timed out)
12:51:56BigBambiLlorean: I wouldn't mind that too much - as I said it is they doing different things in some places and the same in others that really gets me
12:52:26*JdGordon just noticed he has been hacking rockbox for over a year now :)
12:52:29LloreanBigBambi: I think with that layout, it's reasonably truthful to what the buttons are labelled, and then you just make them function consistently on all screens.
12:52:43LloreanJdGordon: Yeah, I was startled when I noticed I'd been with the project over a year.
12:52:45markunLlorean: I think a-b should be used for the a-b feature on the h1xx ;)
12:52:51MoosJdGordon: congrates and happy burthday :)
12:52:58BigBambiLlorean: I'd certainly prefer the consistency across buttons rather than the exact same layout if I had to chose
12:53:31LloreanBigBambi: Yeah, I'm not a fan of "the layout needs to be the same, damn the labels", the consistency is more important, and I think buttons with clear labels like Power and Menu need to do that when they can.
12:53:39BigBambiLlorean: So your plan would be OK by me :)
12:53:56BigBambiLlorean: Now you have my permission, feel free :)
12:54:18LloreanBigBambi: As I said, this afternoon, assuming that what's in my brain now lasts through sleep, whenever it comes.
12:55:02Nico_PLlorean: about your custom hold idea... I like it but first I'd like to ask what would a "none" choice bring ?
12:55:19Nico_Pand second I had a patch that did the same kind of thing with the backlignt on the H300
12:55:26LloreanNico_P: "none" would be my sleep deprived brain automatically pairing something with "All"
12:55:45MoosNico_P: this is already possible on X5
12:55:47LloreanI'm mildly ill, and unable to sleep. :)
12:55:50Moosnote on h3xx?
12:56:05Nico_PThe custom backlight patch was very popular with custom builds
12:56:05LloreanMoos: I think he means that with hold on, certain buttons would turn the backlight on without doing their function.
12:56:21Moosah, more complexe then :)
12:56:26Nico_PMoos, Llorean: No, it made some keys trigger the backlight and some other not

12:56:44LloreanNico_P: Ah, I was close. :) I assume it was often "Volume doesn't trigger backlight"?

12:57:00Nico_PLlorean: that's it, as well as track changes
12:57:22Nico_Pand NAVI and A-B triggered the backlight
12:57:49Nico_PI loved it on my H300 but since I have the gigabeat I'm not maintaining it anymore

15:37:17Luciano90Hi there. I'm having problems with my Ipod 5.5G. I've tried 3 different bootloader with 4 different install guides, and none bootloader has been able to boot neither Apple OS nor Rockbox. I've used some guides found in google, and the rockbox one. Tried the rockbox loader and nothing, none system boots. Also tryed Loader2, and can't get it working. I've copy correctly the folders to the iPod, i have .rockbox there. When I used Loader2
15:37:18Slasherifor example metadata could not be parsed
15:37:31bluebrotherLuciano90: is it a 80GB version?
15:37:48bluebrotherread the frontpage. What does it tell regarding the 5.5G 80GB?
15:38:23Luciano90Oh, didn't see that

16:11:42AceNikWat do i do then ?
16:11:43*JdGordon looks again....
16:11:47GodEater_I just think it's because his /home/<username> folder has a space in it
16:11:53GodEater_and our configure script doesn't like it
16:12:06AceNikso Do i chane my username ?

16:12:28GodEater_and compile from in there

16:13:16GodEater_Insectoid: one step at a time!
16:13:23AceNikwhat im doing now is changing my computer username & then running from /Nikkhil

16:14:06GodEater_AceNik: I'd have done what I suggested first, it's a bit less drastic
16:15:11AceNikso you want me to move the rockbox folder or mu username folder to /tmp

16:15:59Jimmy79Morning folks - anyone awake enouigh to answer a question :)
16:16:13InsectoidWe can try.
16:16:35InsectoidAceNik, the rockbox folder. mv rockbox /tmp from your home dir.
16:16:35GodEater_AceNik: do this : "cd ~ && mv rockbox /tmp && cd/tmp/rockbox/build"
16:16:40markunJimmy79: it's day time in europe, so many rockboxers are awake
16:16:56Jimmy79Ok - I've been playing with Rockbox for a couple days now. One of the features I really wanted was the zoomable photo reader. I've found though that it in some situations it will zoom once.. others as much as I want
16:17:09AceNikok ill try
16:17:13 Join perl|work [0] (
16:17:15Jimmy79I can't figure out why it won't consistantly zoom in deeper.
16:17:29 Join MikeSeth [0] (n=mst@unaffiliated/mikeseth)
16:17:36markunJimmy79: it will only zoom until the resolution of the image
16:17:36GodEater_AceNik: do this : "cd ~ && mv rockbox /tmp && cd /tmp/rockbox/build" <−− space in the last cd command
16:17:46AceNik<Jimmy 79> press the pause button
16:17:54Jimmy79markun - these are fairly large images.
16:17:57MikeSethI installed rockbox on my sansa e280.. it crashed with "data abort". Now, how do I turn the player off?
16:17:59markunJimmy79: so for a 1600x1200 image you can zoom more than for a 640x240 for example
16:18:23markunJimmy79: maybe you cannot zoom more when the RAM is being used by the audio player..
16:18:35GodEater_it never ceases to amaze me the people that install rockbox for "feature X" rather than the music!
16:18:38perl|work"resume" bug is still there
16:19:23Jimmy79markun: That's what I was thinking (the ram) - how can I go about dumping that info so I can use the zoom?
16:19:34markunJimmy79: stopping audio playback
16:19:38Jimmy79GodEater: Well the music is there too, gotta love the OGG support.
16:20:00perl|workpressing "power" (gigabeat) to resume right after turning on the player locks it up (on random basis)
16:20:08*markun doesn't find it strange at all that people use rockbox for other things than just music
16:20:21Jimmy79mark: playback is off... the image is 1000x1500 - and it's only zooming once
16:20:23roolkuJdGordon: just curious - is the onplay menu going to stay with the old API or is this work in progress
16:20:23markunit's a nice replacement firmware and much more flexible than any OF I know
16:20:29MikeSethcome on! please tell me there's a magic interrupt that can be triggered with a key to shut the player down? cuz I can't turn it off! :D
16:20:39perl|workmarkun ever encountered it?
16:20:51JdGordonroolku: it will be moved across... just not sure when
16:21:00markunperl|work: no, I don't think I have
16:21:09Jimmy79Yet I've had situations where it will zoom (on the same image) much deeper. It's really strange.
16:21:24perl|workmarkun maybe cause my active playlist is like 400+ tracks...
16:21:28markunJimmy79: I have no clue what it could be. Sounds like a bug.
16:21:50markunperl|work: mine are usually about 12 tracks
16:21:57roolkuJdGordon: okie, the rating stuff could be done more elegantly as an int setting then (I think)

16:23:04MikeSethsorry guys.. false alarm
16:23:17Jimmy79If I can figure out what feature/function ALLOWS for it to work.. then I'm golden.
16:23:18markunIf you reboot the player and look at the image before doing anything else?
16:23:32Jimmy79Tried before - we'll try it again right now just for the sake of argument.
16:23:48markunsometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't?
16:23:57markunsounds unlikely

16:25:04Jimmy79mark: I think part of it is the ram issue, as I was listening to a fairly large podcast

17:14:11jmsbwtr_there is no charging logo, and ive left it plugged in all day and it still wont turn on
17:14:16desowinjmsbwtr_: try to reboot it
17:14:24jmsbwtr_if i press enough buttons randomly eventually i can get the battery flat logo
17:14:34jmsbwtr_i have tried rebooting it...
17:14:43desowinjmsbwtr_: I got the battery with ! logo
17:14:58desowinthen just select hol, remove hold and press select+menu
17:15:06desowinso far it fixes the problem
17:15:11desowinI've got mini aswell
17:15:22Nico_PJdGordon: thanks for clearing 1400 bytes because that's approx. what I'm going to need for the tokenizer :(

17:15:53bluebrotherNico_P: but he only moved that bytes to the audio buffer ...
17:16:02jmsbwtr_desowin: if i do that, i get the flat battery logo, and then everything dissapears, so I've plugged it into usb but no charging logo
17:16:19Nico_Pbluebrother: it seems to me that bin size is a more scarce resource than RAM ATM
17:16:23jmsbwtr_i did that this morning and it's been plugged in all day, so if it had charged it should be done! at least enough to turn on!
17:16:34bluebrotherRAM is also an issue for the archos models
17:16:48JdGordonram will be maybe half as bad on archos...
17:16:55Nico_Pbluebrother: damn archos models :)
17:17:02Nico_PJdGordon: what do you mean ?
17:17:17JdGordonthey only use 48 of te structs instead of 72...
17:17:47desowinjmsbwtr_: try rebooting, if that won't help - your battery is dead
17:18:19jmsbwtr_what i cant figure out is why the battery went flat when the ipod had 93% the night before and was completely dead the next day
17:18:30markunJdGordon: do we have 72 filetypes?
17:18:36jmsbwtr_i dont think the battery is dead because ive had no problems with it at all with the apple firmware :s
17:18:45JdGordonmarkun: dunno... we have more than 64 though
17:19:07JdGordonand this doesnt handle repeated extensions seperatly
17:19:16bluebrotherwasn't that #define smaller on archos builds?
17:19:33JdGordonno, it was 48 for them...
17:19:34desowinjmsbwtr_: try to reboot and go into diagnostic or original firmware
17:21:04jmsbwtr_ahh, i think it must have just been a very dead battery, when i tried restarting it with the usb cable plugged in it went to the charging logo, thanks desowin for the help

17:40:30toffe82I have a long boot time , but it is because I have the resume playback on at boot

18:57:16*jhMikeS is hoping this low latency thing isn't dead before it starts
18:57:40hcsthat'd be the appropriate death for it
18:57:47amiconnAt least coldfire and pp can. Couldfire should stay restricted to integer multiples of the base, because of the timer prescaling
18:57:50hcsrather than one you'd have to wait for
18:58:04jhMikeSamiconn: because, with that tiny buffer and a high dsp load, and perhaps a low codec load, we'd be bouncing back and forth rapidly between it being empty and full boosting/unboosting at a rapid rate
18:58:06pondlifeDies in ms, not seconds
18:58:09Nico_PjhMikeS: could you explain what low latency is ? and also what do you think of applying as a mentor for the MoB project ?
18:58:39amiconnHmm, the output should never need to boost imho

19:05:20pondlifeI think of a channel as being like a signal path - so we have 4 or however many channels going into a mixer.

19:07:43***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
19:08:44jhMikeSI think so yes...but not radically different. It's not like it takes up much memory itself.
19:08:47pondlifeThe voice codec (or text-to-speech engine) will be responsible for feeding the mixer, but I don't see how the dsp/mixer itself can influence much.
19:09:10pondlifeWhat sort of specialization?
19:09:12amiconnXavierGr: r u there?
19:09:32jhMikeSOne main channel will be straight through...other ones are played and then removed from the chain.
19:09:55amiconnVoice can always be mono for efficiency
19:10:15pondlifeOther codecs might be mono too, the mixer should use this where possible.
19:10:55jhMikeSit will be, yes and then matched up at final mix to the main channel. All things affected by say, EQ, pass throught a single EQ.
19:11:26pondlifeDoesn't EQ affect everything? i.e. post-mixer..
19:11:39pondlifeCrossfeed too...

19:16:55pondlifeOK, you're doing it, I'm not... so I'll shut up!!
19:17:21pondlifeSo is it dead yet? :p
19:19:05XavierGramiconn: yes I am
19:19:09jhMikeSI hope not...but that buffer length...and having full bit depth and not resampling ahead of time makes things real tight. I think I will need to make sure the codecs also don't get held up during a drive spinup. I hope it's possible to be able to spin the disk but not wait on it. Would make life easier.
19:20:01pondlifeAre you planning on having a latency setting for the buffer size? Might be useful for different devices...
19:20:14jhMikeSthat would be utterly trivial
19:20:18pondlifei.e. a system limit setting - would need a reboot to take effect
19:20:35jhMikeSyou could even implement a different output buffer for each target since it's not even 200 lines
19:21:02jhMikeSno need to reboot. just stop playback and reinit the buffers

19:21:33pondlifeI'm thinking that those who use peak meters or lots of EQ bands may need a slightly higher latency perhaps?

19:26:55 Part vcardenas
19:27:26jhMikeSIn any case the buffer is so short that if it does get lagged a bit we get back to not having fine speed control possibly being a problem there. On a .1s buffer, locking the PLL takes 10% of that time itself. urgh.

19:32:46jhMikeShow much lag is acceptable between, say selecting a menu item and hearing the voicing? playback of voice can't be forced ahead when playing music. There's also pausing which I hope can just let the dma play out whatever it has. Pause just stops giving it data.

19:53:41jmsbwtr_i installed rock box, it worked fine for a day, but when i came to it the day after the battery was completely flat
19:54:27jmsbwtr_now when i try to charge it, i can get the charging logo up, but it isn't animated and no matter how long i leave it in for the thing will still come up with the battery & exclamation mark
19:54:39jmsbwtr_I tried getting into disk mode but no luck as there is not enough battery power...
19:57:25jmsbwtr_i cant even get the apple logo up
19:57:47 Quit Hoffmann (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
19:59:51pondlifejhMikeS: Sorry, been away. Two things...
20:00:05pondlife1) Pause should stop the music, but NOT the voice
20:00:17pondlifeSo it needs to not pause the output/DMA...
20:00:26bluebrotherjmsbwtr_: don't know if you tried that already, but:
20:00:30bluebrotherpower down the Ipod
20:00:35bluebrotherattach the usb cable
20:00:50bluebrotherwhen the ipod comes up / start the ipod
20:00:56jhMikeSpondlife: 1) exactly, we pause the codec channels, the voice keeps playing
20:01:09bluebrotherwhen the bootloader starts (apple sign) enter disk mode by pressing Select + Play
20:01:23jmsbwtr_i dont get as far as the apple sign
20:01:26pondlifejhMikeS: 2) The current voicing lag is acceptable IMHO.
20:01:27bluebrotherif it awakes to disk mode you can safely charge it there for a while
20:01:27jmsbwtr_not enough battery
20:01:32jhMikeSDMA is never stopped unless done explicitly to shut everything up
20:01:52pondlifeAh, sorry - I misread you
20:01:55bluebrothercharging is done in hardware iirc, so you could simply connect the usb cable and wait some hours
20:02:26pondlifeDo you think there's likely to be more voice lag with low latency? I would have thought the opposite...
20:02:29 Part chrisjs169|afk
20:02:40jhMikeS2) How much lag is there now? It's much laggier during playback for sure.
20:02:43bluebrotherworked for me when the ipod battery was really flat
20:02:45jmsbwtr_if i plug it in get the non animated chargin icon up, and unplug the cable, the icon stays there, im assuming thats bad!
20:02:56pondlifeIndeed, but acceptably so.

20:03:07pondlifeIt won't get worse than that, will it.

20:03:24jhMikeSpondlife: I think it could be less and more responsive perhaps.
20:03:36pondlifeless and more?
20:03:44pondlifeless lag, more responsive
20:03:56pondlifeWell that would obviously be good..
20:03:57bluebrotherjmsbwtr_: have you tried charging it with that icon?
20:04:08jhMikeSyes since it should be inserted .1s before output always
20:05:01jhMikeSoh, another voice channel specialization might be to store its as 16-bit samples and not 32-bit
20:05:22jmsbwtr_bluebrother: yes, i left it for about 1 and a half - 2 hours, on the apple site it says that after about half an hour it will go to animated, but it hadn't so i tried to find out what was going wrong
20:05:48jmsbwtr_and i left the cable plugged in but no logo up for about 8 hours and it still saying battery is dead
20:05:49pondlifeWhy not allow any channel to use 16-bit? Like mono, maybe the codec could decide...
20:05:50bluebrotherhmm, that sounds strange
20:05:57 Join H10_007quick [0] (
20:06:39jhMikeSthey might have that but since most codecs have > 16bit most of the time they'll be 32-bit
20:06:41jmsbwtr_yea, and i dont think the battery is dead because it wsa fine before i installed rockbox, for some reason i think that rockbox isnt allowing it to charge, but i dont know why

20:09:00jmsbwtr_no worries, thanks for help
20:09:47jmsbwtr_i might just leave it for another few hours, see if it does eventually decide to charge

20:10:29jhMikeSpondlife: I suppose it gets left as whatever the codec sends until it is processed...exept for voice which would be truncated before ever being buffered

20:14:33pondlifeIs there much of a memory/speed gain from using 16 bit for voice only?
20:14:44jhMikeSsomething this opens up is to make it easier to use different output depths on targets that need it
20:14:51 Quit obo ("bye")
20:14:52jhMikeSpondlife: half the memory :)
20:14:55pondlifeYou said 32-bit was more efficient though
20:15:05pondlifeAnd these are short-ish buffers.

23:05:27bluebrotherhmm. is FS #6926 a valid task or is this once again one of these "use proper settings" issue?

23:07:40Nico_PBagder: what do you think is better between defines and an enum ? (it's for the toeknizer, with code size in mind)

23:07:54robin0800why is the yellow problem on the current builds not fixed?
23:08:14BagderNico_P: for tokens, I think I'd prefer enum

23:35:16smablyso, rockbox thinks the default gigabeat battery capacity is 2000 mAh, but GigabeatInfo says it's 830 mAh

23:36:37Nico_Psmably: it's 830
23:36:51Nico_Por maybe not exactly that but it's surely not 2000
23:36:53markunsmably: and the value doesn't matter
23:36:56markunjust ignore it
23:37:23Nico_Pmarkun: what does it take to get the battery meter probably calibrated ?
23:37:24smablyok. doesn't that mean the battery life estimate will be wildly wrong, though?
23:37:38markunsmably: it will be anyway
23:37:43smablyah, okay.
