00:02:21fm2Aua! I've just discovered a huge bug in RB!
00:03:33fm2On my h120, while mp3 is playing, it whistles three times and then... I don't know. The music seems to be played back backwards. Like on some Beatles albums
00:04:24fm2Has anyone seen this as well?
00:04:37roolkufm2: it's not a bug, it's a feature - the demonic message feature

00:15:32blackninjI'm having a hard time finding bootsplash help in the forum
00:16:51kramdrajust wondering but can song info be used by plugins? similar to the stuff that can be put on the WPS screen?
00:17:41kramdracan WPS stuff like current song, next etc.. be used by plugins?

00:19:52BigMacIs there an option to not have backlight shut off in mpegplayer? because that makes no sense for it to keep shutting off
00:21:36perldiverit doesnt shut off here
00:22:01Mouser_XHmmm... I can see how that'd be a big problem...
00:22:37Mouser_XAlso, could an option be added to MpegPlayer that allows you to temporarily increase the brightness of the backlight while it's playing?
00:22:56Mouser_XI intentionally have my light set low to save on battery.
00:23:07Mouser_XJust in case.
00:25:36blackninjcan someone tell me what topic customizing the bootsplash is under in the forums?

00:25:46BigMacAlright another question, is their any bookmarking/remember place feature working yet
00:25:56Mouser_XI doubt it...
00:26:00Mouser_XIt'd be nice though.
00:26:18BigMacblackninj: there isn't a topic just click search and enter "custom boot screen"
00:26:26Mouser_XActually, for how I plan on using mpegplayer, it'd be *very* nice...

01:49:44Soapwhat kind of support holst?
01:51:07holstlike cryptsetup in linux
01:51:15holstwhere you encrypt an entire partition
01:51:54holstwhen i start the mp3 player i get to input a password to enable playback
01:52:19holstthe password can be given by using a combination of up,left,right,down and such button presses
01:52:51holsti dont know how much more battery this would "cost"
01:53:07holstbut i know there exits very optimized assembler versions of aes-128

02:02:17JdGordonwith svn?
02:02:17Mouser_XIt's happened frequently on the Gigabeat as well.

02:02:46|Rincewind|I haven't tried with the very latest, but 2 days ago it was there
02:02:47Mouser_XI just thought it was a "feature" or something saving, or something.
02:02:55|Rincewind|and one week ago, too

02:04:40linuxstbmarkun: Maybe, I haven't looked at your commit yet - I'll look now...
02:04:54JdGordon|Rincewind|: does it matter which plugin you exit?
02:05:24roolku|Rincewind| / JdGordon : I have reported this ages ago (
02:05:42|Rincewind|i haven't tried every plugin, but it seems general
02:05:56|Rincewind|might have to do with action_signalscreenchange() ?
02:06:04markunlinuxstb: but jhMikeS will replace it by a asm implementation anyway
02:06:06roolku|Rincewind|: have a look at the posting
02:06:32SoapIf your MP3 collection is semi legal - fix that issue, don't request a band-aid.
02:06:51JdGordonah! its this bug again... ok
02:07:08Soapregardless, are you expecting a lawyer to stop you an issue a supoena at the airport?
02:07:34Mouser_XIf worse comes to worse, you can format your player.
02:07:39Mouser_XWho's to know then?
02:08:06|Rincewind|roolku: that's the problem, yes
02:08:21SoapCopyright is a civil, not criminal issue. All the airport security in the world don't give a rat's-hiney about your infringement, though you shouldn't talk of it here as infringers don't belong here.
02:08:49linuxstbmarkun: Do you mean clamping of the input values? i.e. YCbCr generated by libmpeg2?
02:09:29perldivermarkun there's too much green now :P
02:09:32holst"long dead"? :)
02:09:49|Rincewind|has someone here tested mpgplayer on h1xx?
02:10:05markunperldiver: do you have a short movie for me to test my fix with?
02:10:14Soapholst: see "The Planets", etc.
02:10:14linuxstb|Rincewind|: I wouldn't go as far to say "tested", but I've run it...
02:10:41perldivermarkun 25mb, would that be ok?
02:10:48markunperldiver: yes
02:10:51|Rincewind|is it realtime (how many frames?)
02:11:01perldivermarkun would you accept dcc?
02:11:16linuxstbperldiver: Does connecting/disconnecting the headphone also crash other plugins which claim the audio buffer? e.g. the JPEG viewer (with large pictures) or Doom?
02:11:17JdGordonroolku: |Rincewind|, i think I may have found the proper fix....
02:11:29perldiverlinuxstb i never tried actually
02:11:29markunlinuxstb: yes, the input values (to prevent y - 16 to be negative for example)
02:11:44linuxstbmarkun: Yes, that seems to be needed.
02:11:50markunperldiver: I'll make a patch, if it works you can first try it, ok?
02:11:53roolkuJdGordon: cool
02:12:03perldivermarkun so you dont want the video?
02:12:11markunperldiver: not now
02:12:16perldiveri can test the patch no problem then
02:12:35JdGordonjust waiting for the full make to finish... but I think its because action_signalscreenchange is after the button_clear_queue call

02:41:04markunlinuxstb: could do that yes

03:11:12w0lfielinuxstb: perhaps you won't actually be able to hear the difference? i'm really not sure without playing around

03:20:29w0lfieahh right. with the company aside, do you think it is a decent player?
03:21:14 Quit rp- ("leaving")
03:21:16jhMikeSyes, if it never needs repair. probably especially wannanty repair. mine was sent out with a simple joystick problem and they messed it up twice.
03:21:56jhMikeSso aside from the company being a bunch of dills, it's the best sounding player I've heard so far.
03:22:40w0lfiehahah. good to hear :)
03:22:52perldiverits a great sounding player, yes, but somehow i prefer gigabeat
03:23:03w0lfiei have heard that from a few people about them being really awesome sounding
03:23:13jhMikeSI'd put Gigabeat a close 2nd to the x5

03:32:46jhMikeSyou thing, check the serial number as read by rockbox. write it down, and save it. I wish I had implemented that before sending it to them.
03:33:36jhMikeSIt's under System|Debug|HW Info

05:04:14toffe82have access ^^
05:04:45jhMikeStoffe82: We can see the die itself? If so, it might have something there, or else I might need something harsher to remove and covering.
05:05:19*Soap is curious what a microscope can tell you about a LCD...
05:05:35toffe82there is a black bar one mm large by 2cm long more or less, the chip must be under
05:05:42 Quit vadim ("Leaving")
05:05:58toffe82I didnt try to take off this part

05:08:00EnR_NWhy is the menu styling different from the photo in the video ipod
05:08:02jhMikeSIn many instances, I think it's nitric acid that can remove any plastic cover and leave the silicon untouched
05:08:27toffe82jhMikeS: the mark I see on one side are : 64A-R12 m0220
05:08:57toffe82and another one FH2185T
05:09:27toffe82I think tht the black part is a radiator, I will try to take it off but not time now
05:09:36LloreanEnR_N: It's possible the Manual is out of date.
05:09:44EnR_NIt seems the in the systems settings there is no longer a "start screen" option, so it starts in the file browser −− meaning i cannot access the database/recording/resume playback options
05:10:03LloreanEnR_N: No, that's not the case.
05:10:06jhMikeSI'd still like a microscope on the die to see what's printed there...gotta be possible
05:10:09LloreanEnR_N: Are you using an official build?
05:10:24EnR_NYes- the latest
05:10:29toffe82jhMikeS: but I think I will not see more the last inscription is on the opposite side of the first one , I see it by transparence and it is reverse
05:10:32EnR_Ndownloaded last thursday
05:10:54EnR_Nthe main menu is the same as the one displayed in the manual
05:10:59LloreanEnR_N: The "latest" should never be said about a build unless it was downloaded in the last 5 minutes.

05:11:41jhMikeStoffe82: yeah, I'll take my time on disassembly and see what I can get...wanna be careful to not destroy info
05:12:10w0lfiehas anyone managed to natively build the tools needed to compile rockbox on FreeBSD 6.2-R? the m68k tools won't compile for me

05:13:09LloreanjhMikeS: Maybe you could get it to stop at the EOF, independent of the stream itself? :-P
05:14:02jhMikeSI'm guessing playback is receiving messages at a time when it should not have any interaction.
05:14:15EnR_NLlorean: do you know which files the settings for the root menu at startup lie in?
05:14:54Soapbascule should write a wikipage on Tagcache/database. Do a brain-dump. He seems quite good with it.

05:16:46XavierGrjhMikeS: what's the exact reason for that? it seems that it is working currently (forgive my ignorance)
05:16:54SoapI wouldn't mind playing around with tagcache on my Nano (I have mostly single tracks on it) and he seems to know more than I can find in the documentation on pratical usage.
05:17:21jhMikeSXavierGr: a) maybe it's really a documented part? b) we want to control everything about it; better driver
05:17:46Soapthe idea of better gigabeat performance is scary.

05:18:04LloreanI would love if that 25 updates per second thing were actually changeable though
05:18:19EnR_NMy main menu is recent bookmarks, general-sound- and manage settings, recording, playlist options, plugins and info
05:18:21darkshadow_By the way, what do you guys use for unzipping?
05:18:26darkshadow_The windows XP archive tool seems to work, but it's quite slow.

05:18:31Soaphow does it do 29.97/30 FPS video is the LCD only does 25?
05:18:40EnR_NI can't even access the screen with "general" on it

05:20:21EnR_NO . K
05:20:22Soapdo they get dropped gracefully, or randomly lost?
05:20:31LloreanRandomly lost.
05:20:36LloreanAs far as I can tell
05:21:01Soapdidn't pacbox on gigabeat just get changed to 30fps?
05:21:05Lloreanmpegplayer sends them to a framebuffer or something, which the LCD controller automatically updates to the screen 25 times per second, I hear.
05:21:34jhMikeSthe display is interlaced
05:21:37Soapjust curious why that would be commited when the screen can't keep up.
05:21:44EnR_NOh btw- is Senab's COP build any better?
05:22:00SoapEnR_N: senab's builds are over 6 weeks out of date.
05:22:07jhMikeSI think it's 50 fields per second actually
05:22:11LloreanEnR_N: COP support is in the official build, if you're using a "COP" build it could be quite outdated.

08:57:57LloreanMouser_X: Have you read any of the guides?
08:58:12Mouser_XI read the compiling guide.
08:58:23Mouser_XIn the Wiki.
08:58:36Mouser_XIf it said how to do it in VMware, I didn't see it, or didn't understand it.
08:59:08JdGordonits all the same... once you have vmware running....
08:59:14LloreanIt's the same as in cygwin.
08:59:41Mouser_XI'll have to see if I have the patience to run VMware again.
08:59:57LloreanIf VMWare has issues with your system, use cygwin
09:00:10Mouser_XI've heard that it might go faster if I cut back on the RAM it uses.
09:00:16Mouser_XThough, I have no idea how to do that.
09:00:16LloreanThe big vmware advantage is speed, and if you've got a system that won't run it quickly for whatever reason, there's not much reason to try to use it.
09:00:27perldiverwhats the different between suspend and power off?
09:00:32perldiver(on exit)
09:02:40Lloreanperldiver: Power Off simulates actually shutting down the virtual computer
09:02:47Mouser_XAs I recall, one "turns it off" such that it'll have to reboot when you start it up again, and the other only puts it in hibernation, so to say.
09:02:48***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
09:02:51LloreanSuspend basically just remembers its state when you quit the program, and returns you to it.
09:02:57LloreanIt's not even hibernation.
09:03:19Mouser_XWell, my understanding of hibernation isn't that great.
09:03:19LloreanI'd actually suggest Power Off. Samba is much more reliable when you've powered up fresh, than after a suspend.
09:03:36Mouser_XI've never used hibernation anyway.
09:03:59Mouser_X(I don't even know if I own a system that does that.)
09:04:01perldiveri mean are there any disadvantages in putting in into suspend more (cause obviously its much better than to power it off)?

10:58:53LloreanIf you update it the proper way, they should be preserved.

12:40:39LloreanJdGordon: Well, the thread seems to be data aborting on iPods when it ends. So something funny is happening there.
12:40:46LloreanOr near when it ends
12:40:51liquid_ravenhow is rockbox on iPod Photo these days?
12:41:16linuxstbLlorean: That could be related to mpegplayer reading past the end of the file.

12:42:03iwantanimacAptitude says they're being removed because they're no longer used...

12:43:20iwantanimacsorry for bad english there...
12:43:50linuxstbiwantanimac: What did you ask aptitude to do?
12:43:53JdGordonSlasheri: thread.c in remove_thread()... if thread == NULL you dont call unlock_cores() before returning... isnt that bad?
12:44:46iwantanimaci just opened it then updated the listings, and asked it (i think) to install xfce4.
12:45:01JdGordonLlorean: looking at remove_thread() it does a thread switch after removing the thread (if its NULL), so its unlikely thats where your problem is.... unless something is expecting that thread to still be alive?
12:45:26LloreanJdGordon: The thread doesn't get removed. After you leave mpegplayer it's still visible on the OS stacks page

12:58:59*Llorean wishes he had a way to get the actual address of the data abort.
12:59:09amiconnHi, I have some questions regarding unicode and codepages
12:59:11linuxstbLlorean: Video camera?
12:59:41amiconnCurrently, full loadable codepage support is compiled in for the player, even for codepages which don't make sense
12:59:41markunLlorean: I had added that to my build, but maybe I lost it when switching to svn..
12:59:48JdGordonhey amiconn, were you plannig on having a "frame buffer" for each vieport? or just give each viewport a origion,width,hieght values and then the drawing code would adjust x/y values to fit in the viewport?
12:59:55linuxstbLlorean: Or try adding an rb->sleep(HZ*30) (30 seconds) to the end of mpegplayer.c - before it quits.
13:00:06amiconnBut at the same time, no loadable codepages are included in 'make zip'
13:00:28JdGordonLlorean: the .map file and the dissasembly :p
13:00:37amiconnJdGordon: No separate framebuffers, that'd be overkill (and require dynamic memory allocation which we don't have and don't want)
13:00:39LloreanJdGordon: No, the data abort doesn't stay on the screen.
13:00:45LloreanI'll try the sleep
13:00:49linuxstbLlorean: And remove the calls to rb->lcd_clear_display() and rb->lcd_update() as well.
13:01:08amiconnmarkun: My problem is that the loadable codepages which can be supported on the player are non-contiguous
13:01:10JdGordonamiconn: ok, thats what I figured :)
13:01:31markunamiconn: what do you mean by that?
13:01:39amiconn(indices 0, 1, 3, 6, 7 and 12 in the current settings)
13:02:18JdGordonLlorean: if your game, you could probably fiddle with the data abort code to dump the location to a file?
13:02:36LloreanJdGordon: If one of these easier methods doesn't work, I was thinking about it
13:02:40amiconn(iso 8859-1, iso8859-7, cp1251, iso8859-9, iso8859-2 and utf-9)
13:02:55JdGordonshouldnt a data abort stop all exectution though? how does it not stay on the screen?
13:02:56***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
13:03:14linuxstbJdGordon: I assume it's because the data abort is on the COP. But you're right - it _should_ stop everything.
13:03:15LloreanJdGordon: It's on core (1)
13:03:22amiconnSo I need a way to reorder them, and would like to know whether the codepage order has any special meaning other than the order in iso.cp
13:04:16amiconnAlso, I need to find a new name for iso.cp and add a parameter to 'codepages' for selecting minimal or full support
13:05:15amiconnDo we want to reorder codepages for all targets, or rather introduce a new filename (e.g. isomini.cp ??) for the player?
13:06:17Llorean00046148 apparently

13:16:30Lloreanremove_thread is at 00046130, and the abort's at 00046148 if that helps a bit (compiled for the Nano, that is)

13:17:31SlasheriLlorean: so that happens with the mpegplayer?
13:18:30Slasheriok, first i would try it with scheduler's locking mechanism enabled (now cop is not safe to use because those functions are disabled)
13:19:34linuxstbWhy is the COP not safe to use?
13:20:01Slasherioperations are not thread safe core wise as long as the locking is disabled
13:20:29linuxstbWhat kind of operations?
13:20:44Slasheriall kernel function calls that needs locking (almost any of them)
13:20:55Slasherisuch as remove_thread itself
13:21:33Slasheriif COP's scheduler is working with that thread the same time main CPU calls remove_thread, no wonder if it would crash..
13:22:00linuxstbThe main CPU isn't removing the thread, the thread is committing suicide with remove_thread(NULL).
13:22:25Slasheriok, then it's not that bad
13:22:48linuxstbThis worked fine in the past (afaik).
13:22:59Lloreanmpegplayer has frozen when I've hit "stop" on the gigabeat too, which is single core, though no data abort message.
13:23:16Slasherihmm, interesting
13:23:21LloreanOn the gigabeat though, it's not consistent, I can't find a way to reliably reproduce it, it seems about 1 in 5 or so.
13:24:02linuxstbmpegplayer's threading isn't 100% reliable, but I'm waiting for the kernel to become stable before cleaning it up.

13:28:28LloreanSlasheri: It data aborts, and I looked up the address in the .map
13:28:41linuxstbThe data abort doesn't freeze the entire system, so we're assuming the data abort is happening on the COP. And there's only one mpegplayer thread on the COP.

14:22:58caduhello guys, just made a battery benchmark on my gigabeat F20, where do i have to drop it so you guys can use?
14:23:20ompaul date today might help
14:23:22markuncadu: there is a wiki page, don't know the exact name
14:23:28Lloreanlinuxstb: Though I think whatever the problem that affects the gigabeat is there, because my Sansa froze immediately after exiting mpegplayer once, but then after reboot played 4 times in a row no problem
14:23:59LloreanBut the consistent 'data abort' is gone, I believe
14:25:00caduit played for 14h7m , is it okay ?

14:28:37cadui just wanna send the runtime :) by the way i'm also starting to create the new portuguese-brazil translation for rockbox

14:34:42 Join smolyn [0] (
14:34:53linuxstbHmm... I wonder if the video thread is actually running on the COP on the Sansa then...
14:35:07LloreanThe video thread is doing SOMETHING funny
14:35:16LloreanI just plugged in USB on my gigabeat and instead of seeing a USB logo, I see a video
14:35:34Lloreanspecifically the last one I had played, in slow motion
14:35:57linuxstbThat's been mentioned before I think... Maybe we should add a list of known bugs to the PluginMpegplayer wiki page, so we don't lose track of them all.
14:36:48LloreanWell, the thing was, I was in the filebrowser.
14:36:54LloreanUnless I bumped "right" as I plugged in the cable
14:38:04Lloreanlinuxstb: If the videothread weren't on the COP on the Sansa, wouldn't performance be considerably worse than it is?
14:38:48linuxstbProbably, yes. But the LCD update on the Sansa is much faster than other targets IIUC - it's a hardware blit.
14:39:23LloreanAh, because I get close to the performance of my Nano on my Sansa already
14:39:38linuxstbSo I wouldn't have expected it to be slower than the Photo, although there is the possible overhead of rotating the screen.
14:40:35LloreanI don't recall the video dropping a lot of frames when the audio dropped out though. Would that be expected?
14:41:19LloreanBut then, just memory.
14:41:22linuxstbI'm not sure...
14:41:27LloreanAny way to test what core it's on?
14:41:55LloreanActually... I'm trying to remember if my Sansa did the data aborts.
14:44:37Lloreanlinuxstb: With a day old build, it gets the data aborts, same as the Nano
14:44:53 Quit jaebird (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
14:46:04linuxstbOK, that's expected, but doesn't prove the thread is running on the COP, just that Rockbox is compiled with dual-core support.
14:46:35 Join jaebird [0] (
14:46:43LloreanYeah, but Rockbox continues operating, and OS Stacks shows the thread on (1) at least
14:47:02LloreanAlso, now that I've put 989 back on it again, it's showing the expected "You can only play one video per boot" behaviour now.
14:48:04LloreanI wonder if it's similar to what causes the rare freeze-on-exit on my Gigabeat? If that freeze were on core 2, it wouldn't interfere until you tried to launch another video on the PortalPlayers.
14:48:18LloreanWhoops, now I played 2 videos in a row again. It's not consistent, whatever it is.
14:48:34Llorean3rd video did it this time. =/
14:51:10LloreanAlright, the Nano consistently fails after 1 video, the Sansa locks up after an arbitrary number, but still shows the "Shutting Down" splash when I try.
14:51:19linuxstbLlorean: You could try replacing "delay" in line 934 of mpegplayer.c with "PROCESSOR_ID&0xff" - that value should tell us what thread the Sansa's video thread is running on.

15:00:39Lloreanlinuxstb: I'm not surprised by that, I was expecting to be able to on my Nano if I kept trying
15:01:44Lloreanlinuxstb: Really the only difference between my Sansa's behaviour and my what my Gigabeat's been doing fairly recently is that the Gigabeat freezes as you quit, and the Sansa seems to freeze when you start a file.

15:39:46Nico_Pmaybe it won't help but at least I'll be sure I'm not hunting an already corrected bug
15:39:47Lloreanmarkun: Is it out of sync from the start of the file, or more out of sync over time?
15:40:14amiconnJdGordon: No z-order, just rectangular areas for drawing
15:40:26amiconnIf they overlap, the result will be undefined
15:40:47amiconn(well, not undefined, just the viewport that draws last will win)
15:40:57JdGordondo you know how your planning on updating the screen? maybe a Z-order wont be so hard to implement?
15:41:12JdGordonI have exactly 1 idea which would need this :p
15:41:40pixelmaNico_P:will try but the report might follow a little later then...

15:42:23Nico_PI'll check the log when I come back
15:42:28amiconnA z-order would be very hard to implement without separate bitmap buffers. It would require checking bounds against *all* viewports where without it the viewport only needs to check its own bounds
15:42:33markunLlorean: at 18 seconds into the file I hear talking and it's already out of sync
15:43:20JdGordonamiconn: couldnt you just update the rect of the lowest vp first? then move up the order?
15:43:46Lloreanmarkun: Just to be sure, you haven't accidentally turned framerate limiting off, right?
15:43:49amiconnUpdate will just update the specified viewport
15:43:55markunLlorean: no, just checked
15:44:11markunLlorean: other files also still play fine
15:44:12amiconnThat has nothing to do with z order
15:44:33JdGordonhmm.... ok
15:44:38amiconnSince all viewports draw to the same framebuffer, each drawing operation would need checking against all stacked viewports
15:45:20Lloreanmarkun: It's too bad there's no audio to hear at the start. =/
15:45:46markunLlorean: while I was experimenting I converted the original avi to mkv. mkvmerge warned me that there was garbage at the beginning and it would delay the audio to account for that.
15:46:13markunMaybe the mpg has an initial delay for the audio which we should take into account?
15:46:30Lloreanmpegplayer is supposed to take into account that sort of delay, I think
15:47:13LloreanThere have been two cases already where linuxstb has made changes for 'initial avdelay'

17:36:26DrakAlright. I've probably missed it in the manual, but so far, the only option for adding more music to your player is using iTunes to add it, then updating the database.

17:36:47LloreanDrakonik: What do you mean?
17:37:07LloreanDrakonik: You can add music to your player by any method that can move audio files from one drive to another
17:37:26LloreanAnd if you don't use something like iTunes that renames them, you have the option of filetree browsing alongside the database.

17:39:14LloreanThat's kinda the whole point of filetree browsing... you see the filetree.
17:39:14DrakonikI've played with too much stuff...I think I know what you mean, though.

17:42:05DrakonikOh. While I'm here, I didn't see any way to make the text for all the menus larger.
17:42:12DrakonikIt looks to be 3 or 4 points.
17:42:14LloreanJust pick a larger font.
17:42:28LloreanAnd it's twice that size.
17:42:46DrakonikAh. Well, I'm terrible at eye-balling things.
17:43:17LloreanWell, I guess it depends on the pixel packing on the LCD, if you want to use "point"
17:43:35DrakonikGood point.
17:44:00DrakonikMy main point is that I'm squinting like friggin crazy.
17:44:43LloreanYeah, and picking a larger font will solve that
17:44:56DrakonikI'll do it next time I get my hands on my ipod.

21:59:47WilliamGCAre there any other places for hacked firmware for iFP790?
22:01:57LloreanWilliamGC: Not really. There is a slightly modified version of the iRiver firmware, but it wouldn't do anything about crashes, it just alters the allowed recording bitrates (though it doesn't make much difference)

22:02:26WilliamGCI'll probably end up getting a new player.

22:03:18movezigIs vorbis better than mp3?

22:11:30WilliamGCI have bigger issues that don't have solutions.
22:11:34 Quit Nibbier (K-lined)
22:11:58Lloreanwebguest65: In most cases you simply extract the theme directly to your player.
22:12:16webguest65in the .rockbox?
22:12:26LloreanBasically, look at the folders in the theme zip, and look in the .rockbox folder, and you'll see folders with the same name, you just make sure the files from the zip end up in those folders.
22:13:31WilliamGCWhich player has the best support?
22:13:59LloreanBasically, anything without a PortalPlayer chip is pretty well working
22:14:12peturarchos, iriver, iaudio I think
22:14:30Lloreanpetur: iRiver h10 is bad though, gotta be careful about brands
22:14:32WilliamGCMy iRiver has crappy support, I suppose getting a newer one would be a good idea.
22:14:50LloreanWilliamGC: Basically, don't look at the H10, any iPod, or the Sansa e200.
22:14:59petursorry master Llorean
22:15:13WilliamGCI heard that a certain format of MP3 tags upsets the iFP790
22:15:34LloreanWilliamGC: Many players are upset by bad tags, especially ApeV2 if they don't skip them properly
22:15:43HochlerHow's the progress with mpegplayer going?
22:15:45WilliamGCI don't use ape though
22:16:03Lloreanpetur: Just pointing it out. It'd be sad if someone tried an H10 and thought that was a "good" Rockbox player. :)
22:16:07WilliamGCI generally rebuild all of my Mp3s and retag them on download.
22:16:23LloreanWilliamGC: Anyway, this channel isn't really about original firmwares
22:16:35 Join BigMac [0] (
22:16:41WilliamGCYou're more helpful then the forum.
22:16:46LloreanHochler: There are still bugs, and they're still getting fixed.
22:17:04WilliamGCIt has things like iRiver sucks, or questions with no replies.
22:17:09LloreanWilliamGC: I'm as helpful as the Rockbox forum, and here like there we try to stay on topic.
22:17:21HochlerLlorean: Cool, was just curious.
22:17:33WilliamGCIf I wanted to build the patch, how would I do it in Windows?
22:17:55LloreanWilliamGC: It's not really a "patch", it's an entirely new firmware.
22:18:07HochlerLlorean: Is there a chance for full-speed 320x240 on the iPod video, or is that out of reach?
22:18:25LloreanWilliamGC: You'll have to look into the SimpleGuideToCompiling wiki page at the rockbox site. But odds are good the iFP build will fail to finish compiling.
22:18:48LloreanHochler: Very, very, very unlikely. In fact, probably impossible unless someone comes up with a way to use the built in chip, which nobody on Rockbox is currently investigating.
22:18:50WilliamGCOh, you have to patch the original firmware to create a backdoor.
22:19:00LloreanWilliamGC: Yep, but that's just the 'bootloader'
22:19:11LloreanI do believe there's a precompiled version of that on the wiki
22:19:23HochlerLlorean: Ah, OK. Thanks.
22:19:49WilliamGCI suppose I'll just have to get a new music player.
22:20:57WilliamGCI bought 2 Sansa players on EBay for 7 dollars together.
22:21:00LloreanHochler: The iPod's CPU is basically just too slow, and the screen too big. With the original firmware the Broadcom chip does all the video stuff, but there's no documentation for it, and it'd be a very, very lot of work to try to reverse engineer it, for it to only benefit one (or two if you count 5.5G as separate) targets.
22:21:08WilliamGCThey may either be defective or damaged.
22:21:10WilliamGCOh well
22:21:43peturWilliamGC: that was quick ;)
22:21:53WilliamGCI got them about an hour ago

22:32:22JavaMan22you need to have a rom file or .gbc
22:32:46JavaMan22then in your file browser hold the select button and open with rockboy
22:33:03webguest65i do i got a gb and gbc rom
22:33:27JavaMan22ok then do what i just told you to do
22:33:53pixelmayou don't have to "open with" just select the .gb(c) like you would play a song
22:33:58JavaMan22find your rom file and open with rockboy

22:54:06TofuSCHNITZEL1 week ago
22:54:38linuxstbThere used to be a bug in Rockbox were it wouldn't correctly distinguish between a USB connection to a power plug, and a USB connection to a computer, but that was fixed a few months ago.
22:55:06TofuSCHNITZELi just
22:55:11TofuSCHNITZELtried it

23:40:42LloreanYeah, it really is.
23:42:42LloreanBut it's also pretty easy to un-brick.
23:42:59peturso it's not really bricked
23:43:04 Quit secleinteer (Client Quit)
23:43:05Lloreanpetur: It requires opening the player
23:43:31LloreanI think this is our definition of "brick": Requires opening the player, or special hardware or software tools.
23:43:42LloreanSo, once you need e200tool, the Sansa is "bricked" in a sense.
23:44:00Soul-SlayerSurely though 'brick' should mean 'it has become a brick, therefore totally beyond repair'
23:44:00peturfair enough
23:44:09LloreanSoul-Slayer: There's no such thing, though.
23:44:23LloreanExcept grievous hardware damage to the point where repairing it constitutes the purchase of a new player.
23:44:37Soul-SlayerWell, 'unable for the average user to repair'
23:44:53LloreanI'd say opening the player is beyond the "average" user, as is e200tool. :)
23:45:07LloreanOr at least, the "average" user *thinks* they are.
23:45:18Soul-SlayerFair point.
23:45:44LloreanThough I wish people wouldn't say "Rockbox bricked my X" so often
23:46:50Soul-SlayerSomewhere there should be bolded, underlined clarification as to its true terminoligy then :p.
23:47:43LloreanI think we do have a definition of it, at least for forum use.
23:47:53Soul-SlayerWell it needs bolding :p
23:48:09LloreanBut the problem is, if they do something stupid while installing Rockbox, then it's "Rockbox bricked it" not "I bricked it before I even managed to start Rockbox"
