00:01:10linuxstb_There's still the PP5002...
00:01:35linuxstb_I wonder how many seconds per frame the 3g needs...
00:01:39amiconnTaking the function out of iram increases boost ratio by 1%
00:02:23amiconn(49%->50%, same album of course)
00:02:54linuxstb_Sounds like the real solution will be to build libmad separately for mpegplayer - we'll probably want to start using IRAM for libmpeg2 anyway, balancing it with libmad.
00:03:27preglowoh yes
00:03:32preglowfor sure
00:03:43amiconn...and perhaps also differencing by target
00:03:48preglowbut cmon, you've gotta have loadable codecs :>
00:04:01amiconnMini G2 and Sansa can use more iram than the other pp targets
00:04:12*preglow jumps behind a rock
00:04:26*amiconn doesn't understand
00:04:40amiconnWhat does that have to do with iram usage
00:04:46 Join FOAD [0] (
00:05:10preglowjust the fact that balancing iram usage between every codec and libmpeg2 will be hell

00:09:15amiconnjhMikeS: The .h files in target tree should always be named *-target.h
00:09:28amiconn(referring to the one for gigabeat)
00:10:28amiconnIf there is more than one xyz-target.h in the path for a target, the more specific one will be used
00:11:19jhMikeSthe problem is the duplication with holding that rule holy
00:11:53amiconnAnd not all PPs are register compatible, only the PP502x ones are. The PP5002 is different
00:12:01jhMikeSit means I have to duplicate stuff that's shared at multiple levels
00:12:24amiconnYes, some duplication happens in target tree much easier to have a master file and a specific file
00:13:09amiconnStill better than excessive ifdefing...

00:21:35 Quit Thundercloud (Read error: 54 (Connection reset by peer))
00:21:55jhMikeSI mean if I can't convince anyone to refine how target/ works in order to avoid pasting in identical routines that can be used on all the cpus in a particular cpu branch, then, ok but imho it's a bit more of a maintenence nightmare than just including a more specific file within the target header.
00:22:01LloreanMxxCon: Rockbox works pretty much identically across all players, except where either the hardware doesn't allow it or we don't have a driver for a piece of hardware yet.
00:22:02markunMxxCon: the original firmware or rockbox?
00:22:05 Join Thundercloud [0] (

00:22:38MxxCongood, don't care for that ;)
00:22:44amiconnjhMikeS: You could do it the other way round, then the names included from outside target tree would be fixed
00:23:07markunand transfering files from a USB stick / camera without a computer doesn't work either
00:23:37amiconnI.e. call the most specific file xyz-target.h, and let it e.g. include a more general xyz-arm.h
00:23:53MxxConmarkun, how likely is that to be implemented in the future?
00:24:12markunMxxCon: the interface looks less polished at first sight, but overall rockbox is way better if I may say so
00:24:13jhMikeSamiconn: true...isn't that just semantics? :)

00:25:01MxxCongoogle summer of code?
00:25:15amiconnOne specific file would always include the same more general one, so no ifdefing, and the firmware code outside target tree would always include the -target version, so no ifdefing here as well
00:25:19markunMxxCon: why are you asking all this? Are you planning to buy a Gigabeat?

00:26:38l2eM1xis there a known bug with uisimulator that the lines are not accurate to the actual player
00:26:49amiconnjhMikeS: Heh, I didn't have that idea earlier either; there are probably some places in target/sh/archos/ and target/coldfire/ where duplication could be reduced

03:03:50courtcHello fellow persons.
03:04:18courtcIs this patch correct?
03:04:57Lloreancourtc: That patch has nothing to do with Rockbox.
03:05:18LloreanIt's for loader2, so you should be asking them about whether it's correct for their software
03:05:18courtcSure it does.
03:05:23LloreanIt's just loading Rockbox.
03:05:27LloreanBut it's a patch for non-Rockbox software.
03:05:34courtcThanks, but I would be the one applying the patch.
03:05:50LloreanIf you mean "is it looking in the right place", well, yes, /.rockbox/rockbox.ipod is where your binary should be now.
03:06:06courtcThat's what I needed to know, thanks.
03:06:15NeedHelpWithSansive installed rockbox onto my sansa
03:06:25LloreanAnd you didn't know that from simply looking at the contents of the latest
03:06:26NeedHelpWithSanshow do i load music and stuff onto it
03:06:34LloreanNeedHelpWithSans: Please try reading the manual some more.
03:06:37courtcDerPapst brought it to my attention. I was just verifying.
03:06:46linuxstb_courtc: Yes, that patch looks fine to me.
03:06:57courtcShould it also be backwards compatible?
03:07:36linuxstb_The Rockbox bootloader looks in .rockbox first, and then the root, so you could do the same to be consistent.
03:08:01courtcSounds good, will do.
03:08:07linuxstb_But all new rockbox builds come with the rockbox.ipod file inside the .rockbox folder.

03:10:42linuxstb_courtc: Are you planning a new official release of loader? It's been a while since 2.4.
03:11:30courtcslowcoder and Tempel have pretty much dropped development as of recently.
03:12:50courtcI'm working on a iPod OS of my own, so I may be able to contribute some fixes back to loader2. I found a couple minro bugs in it and the iPL kernel.
03:13:32linuxstb_Why another OS? Just for the fun of it?
03:13:38courtcNot really sure in which direction ipodloader2 is aimed though..
03:14:29linuxstb_From what I can tell, it's just been bugfixes since 2.4, plus 2048-byte sector support.
03:14:41courtclinuxstb_: Well, as a learning process, debugging, and an attempt to optimize lcd output−−right now it's fairly slow.
03:14:52linuxstb_I'm not sure what more you can add to a bootloader...
03:15:38linuxstb_Which ipod(s) are you working on?
03:16:17courtcphoto currently, for debugging purposes.
03:17:41courtcOnce I get it more useful, all color ipods.

06:54:00LloreanVic-Viper: Try turning hold on then off again, then holding Menu+Select
06:54:32LloreanVic-Viper: The Nanos (all iPods really, but the Nanos show it the most) occasionally don't like to come back from power down. It happens in the retail firmware too, but since the retail firmware doesn't power fully down until you leave it for like 2 days, you don't see the problem as often.

07:02:52Vic-ViperThere, got it dual booting via the linux loader so I get a pretty menu at startup
07:03:19aliaskInsectoid: I would suggest turning it off, as I have done. I would guess that it adds at least an hour to playback.
07:04:13InsectoidAliask: just take out the #define from firmware/export/ipodvideo.h?
07:05:07aliaskOh, you mean completely removing the backlight code. This might actually leave the backlight permanently on...
07:05:30InsectoidThat's probably not what I'm looking to do :( −− What did you do to disable it?
07:05:40aliaskI set backlight time to 0
07:05:47InsectoidAh... That's rather easier.
07:06:31aliaskPerhaps a small boost in battery life could be gained by switching the LCD off completely, but I'm not sure how much power it takes. Or how to actualy do this.
07:07:06InsectoidThat's just asking for trouble if I break the thing with my tinkering and need someone to tell me what it says.

11:53:19amiconnFor dynamically supported files I mean
11:53:41midkayjust a small X is all i can really think of...">
11:53:42amiconnJdGordon: Do we have a 4-gray icon set yet?
11:53:53JdGordondont think so
11:54:35amiconnDid you see my latest remarks regarding charcell and dynamic icons btw?
11:54:52JdGordonin irc? unless i was highlighted i didnt
11:55:25amiconnI think that the best way will be to implement a (limited) bmp loader for charcell, so that the viewers.config mechanism will be the same
11:55:32JdGordonwe definatly want the viewer icons sepearate from the inbuilts?
11:55:57amiconnThe loader would only load 1-bit BMPs, and onl 7 pixels wide ones

13:20:27SliMMJdGordon, thanks
13:20:36linuxstbamiconn: Did you measure the unrestricted FPS?
13:20:39amiconn(all tests with frame skip and frame rate limiting enabled) H300 fullscreen ~6.5fps, H300 widescreen ~8fps, X5 fullscreen ~10fps, X5 widescreen ~18fps
13:20:43SliMMbluebrother: that's ok :P
13:21:06amiconnAnd except X5 widescreen it looks really jumpy as it seems mpegplayer skips whole gops
13:21:11bluebrotherbut that's the same values as the website uses (just checked the css)
13:22:08linuxstbamiconn: Those aren't realistic tests - mpegplayer need to decode all 24fps, it's just skipping the display. AFAIK, jhMikeS's changes only skip decoding of B-frames, and my encodes don't have any B frames.
13:22:26linuxstbSo the files should be encoded at far less - e.g. 12fps
13:22:58jhMikeSlinuxstb: no, it will skip I and P frames if desperately behind and just dropping frames in rendering can't keep up. There's no choice or you'll just fall behind.
13:23:16linuxstbYou would expect that to be happening on the H300?
13:23:55*davina is away: in the bath
13:25:47jhMikeSso, if you drop I or P in the decoder, nothing can be drawn again until the next I so that's it's last resort. Order: B->Render->P or I
13:26:17amiconnWithout frame skip, H300 fullscreen starts at around 10.5fps, then drops to ~9 with increasing complexity
13:26:18 Join FOAD [0] (
13:27:02linuxstbThat's good IMO - the original firmware only manages 10fps IIRC, and there is still a lot of optimisation possible on Coldfire.
13:27:16jhMikeSPossible, but sync in the short term is it's goal
13:28:18jhMikeSI have a video that can average the video framerate in the long term, but in the short term it must drop frames to keep synchronized
13:28:28amiconnWidescreen starts above 12fps, then drops to ~11
13:29:19amiconnFramerate varies a lot in "elephants dream" on coldfire - does this also happen on arm?
13:29:52linuxstbOne problem is that the valid mpeg framerates are 10, 12, 15, 23.976, 24, 25, 29.97, and 30. So a big gap between 15 and 24 - which is probably where most targets lie.
13:30:12linuxstbI guess encoding with lots of B frames is the solution...
13:30:22linuxstbamiconn: Yes.
13:31:01linuxstbAlthough not on gigabeat - I think it can now play the full-screen version with no skipping.
13:33:16amiconnRegarding mpegplayer on coldfire, there is more optimisation potential on X5 (and M5) than on the irivers - more iram
13:33:28jhMikeSwell, that video I mention on the gigabeat keeps up with only b frames dropped. the best solutions are: faster decoder and B frames since they can just not be decoded arbitrarily and they also take a lot of CPU to decode

13:39:39preglowbtw: before commiting, i would try to disable the new imdct on portalplayer and see if it has any impact

13:54:44linuxstbSeems it should be done properly and moved to the config files...
13:55:20amiconnDon't forget to bump the api versions (including the minimum) when doing that move
13:55:34linuxstbA second oops...
13:56:00linuxstbAnd playback.c even uses different names...
13:56:02amiconnThe case of X5 was special because the core IRAM was decreased, so the old plugins and codecs could still work without interfering with the core
13:56:40SliMMapart otimisation, what should i do for my code to be included in the svn?
13:56:43amiconnBut if you increase both core and plugin iram to 64KB, the old plugin iram would partially overlap what now belongs to the core...
13:56:52SliMMapart from optimisation*
13:57:33linuxstbDoes config.h seem the best place for those definitions? Based on the target CPU defined in config-target.h
13:57:57amiconnThe cpu types will probably need a slight rework as well
13:58:09amiconnWe don't have PP5022 as a separate type yet

14:01:01amiconnThat's another reason why it's imho worth to keep support for old targets in the trunk - having more targets forces you to think about proper abstraction

14:03:49amiconnThinking about the libflac -> ffmpegflac move for audio...
14:03:51PaulJamJdGordon: why have you changed the space between the icon and the text? with svn there are 3 pixels between text and icon in browser and menus, and with your patch ther are 2 pixels in menus and 1 pixel in the browser. (with default font and icons)
14:04:50 Part TrueJournals_
14:04:58amiconnlibflac struggled like hell, and now flac is our fastest (compressed) audio codec...
14:07:26linuxstbI think mirak found a (quite old) comparison showing that (at least on x86), ffmpeg's mpeg2 decoder was significantly faster.
14:08:35linuxstbAlthough I remember the difference not being enough to motivate me to try and use it...

14:10:22amiconnI also wonder about the performance requirements of mpeg4 vs. mpeg2.
14:11:03amiconnOne should think mpeg2 is easier to decode because of less complexity, but then why do dap/pmp manufacturers often choose mpeg4 for video support?
14:11:37preglowmost videos you will find floating around already are mpeg4
14:11:42amiconnIn what way is mpeg4 more popular? All dvds out there are mpeg2...
14:11:47linuxstbI think one advantage of mpeg4 is more flexible framerates - which is useful on low-powered devices.
14:11:56jhMikeSthere seems to be junk in the decoder we can just strip away perhaps
14:12:06preglowamiconn: dvds aren't just files floating around, you have to rip them

15:19:14ashesi use my iriver with my home stereo. its not the best home stereo, but its not bad. so, im wondering what quality level i should use with ogg vorbis
15:19:28PaulJamJdGordon: is the iconheight now determined automatically? (sorry if i'm annoying you with so many questions)
15:19:36ashesthe same track is 1.9MB at quality 5, and 6.3MB at quality 10
15:19:41JdGordonyes, and your not :)
15:21:01PaulJamashes: you should encode some tracks at different quality levels and then decide yourself what is good for your ears

15:21:11daurnimatorhey JdGordon
15:21:25ashesusing quality 10 means that one day my iriver will be full. using quality 5 means i can fit over 3 times more tracks in it. what sort of hardware/speakers are needed to hear the affects of quality 5 or 10?
15:22:00daurnimatorashes: try it for yourself
15:22:20ashesalmost all my cds are vocal, so i think they need better quality encoding
15:23:35ashesif i understand correctly, something like Queen wouldn't benefit from higher quality than something like Bjrk
15:23:36JdGordonif they are vocal they dont need high quality at all..
15:23:40SliMMJdGordon: what if i want to make an icon for my php files?
15:23:55JdGordonSliMM: ?
15:24:02ashessomething like elvis wasn't recorded with very good quality to begin with
15:24:35SliMMJdGordon: can i just add the new icon at the bottom of the other icons?
15:25:25JdGordonSliMM: add it to the end of the bmp for the viewers, then add the .icons file, you also need to add php to viewers.config
15:25:29aliaskashes: But that quality degradation is different to the quality degradation of ogg compression, so it'll sound different.

15:37:45SliMMand i can only use the database for several minutes, after that the database becomes "not ready"
15:37:50lachlanSliMM? It actually says 'tagcache'. All references to tagcache should be gone from RB
15:38:32SliMMit doesn't say tagcahe, i didn't know whether it said database or tagcache, that's why the slash is there

16:17:42JdGordonbut they look shweet
16:17:50aliaskSorry, I was looking at gigabeat
16:17:59aliaskI guess for H300 it wouldn't be so good.
16:18:07aliaskAlso the tango Icons are 16x16 :P
16:18:09JdGordonor the poor sansa
16:18:28JdGordonI tihnk 12x12 and 12x16 for the h300 and sansa would be about as big as you would want
16:18:48aliasklachlan: It's a turn based strategy game
16:19:26aliaskWhy 12x16? 1:1 looks nicer imo. (those ratios were leftovers from charcell iirc)
16:20:32aliaskI'll take a stab at making some 12x12 ones (likely I'll just scale and cleanup the 16x16's)
16:20:45PaulJamaliask: why didn't you post the viewers iconset in your last comment too? (they can be loaded with "viewers iconset:" in the .cfg)
16:21:00aliaskOh... didn't realise that.
16:21:19JdGordonyeah, the viewers bmp can hold up to 32 icons,
16:21:51aliaskBut why do we have icons for files that already have icons (ie MP3 with vbrfix)
16:22:06JdGordonwhich can replace the built in filetype icons (diff icons for .mp3, flac, ogg :) ) so it needs a <iconset>.icons file to go with it
16:22:47JdGordonaliask: in viewers.config? thats so it can register it.. its actually pointless :p
16:23:37*JdGordon tries aliask's icons on the sansa
16:24:01JdGordonno /me doesnt... /me doesnt have a good theme to go wit the large font needed

18:38:30jhMikeStoni1: not sure actually
18:38:44toni1jhMikeS: (2) by writing lcd frame data to uncached memory (as dan_a proposed)

18:39:26toni1when did you do that?
18:40:12jhMikeSrevision 13150...wasn't me
18:40:20toni1problem: while the flush is inprogress the fiq accesses memory (dram)
18:40:38toni1which can cause memory stalls
18:41:05toni1which leads to the audio dropouts + channel swapping
18:41:10jhMikeSso why even bother flushing lcd updated?
18:42:17jhMikeSor you're saying in general having the two memory accesses isn't a problem...I thought it might be related to flushing the cache on every update

18:52:50Camjpno ok
18:53:08Camjpnhas anyone else had problems with mediamonkey using any mp3 playeR?

18:59:24Camjpnhey ihave a question
18:59:40Camjpnthis might be the problem to the F20?
18:59:49Camjpneverytime i connect it says picture,
18:59:57Camjpnlike show, add, etc
19:00:09Camjpnhow would i make it say like MP3 device
19:00:51SliMMCamjpn: i didn't really understaind you
19:01:07Camjpnyea ^^
19:01:18Camjpnok, well in windows, when u connect a USB device,
19:01:25 Join FOAD [0] (
19:01:42Camjpnit pops up a window saying
19:01:43SliMMwhat is your problem?
19:01:55jhMikeSit's just that it can get done and start executing code again around 32 bytes sooner or so (it looks like).
19:01:57Camjpnwell, i cannot sync my F20 with mediamonkey
19:02:07Camjpnor WMP
19:02:20Camjpnbecause they dont detect it as a mp3 device
19:02:49SliMMsince i don't know what mediamonkey is, i don't know how to help you
19:03:05Camjpno well, it cant sync with WMP
19:03:11Camjpnso could u help me with that?
19:03:13 Join linuxstb_ [0] (n=linuxstb@rockbox/developer/linuxstb)
19:03:18SliMMbut you shoud be able to see your mp3player as a drive
19:03:30Camjpnyea its I drive
19:03:48SliMMand just drag>drop music however you want
19:04:02Camjpno thats wut u do with rockbox?
19:04:08Camjpnso u cannot sync with WMP or anything?
19:04:23SliMMyes, just like other memory stick or storing device
19:04:32Camjpno ok
19:04:35SliMMand you can vrowse the files on your mp3player
19:04:52Camjpnwhat about playlist, like i have a playlist made already? is there someway i can move it to
19:04:56Camjpnthe drive?
19:05:26SliMMwell, playlists are text files
19:05:43toni1jhMikeS: this maybe also related to the issue with the reported e280 screen problems in the forum (top most one or two lines show garbage)
19:05:50SliMMyou coud open up notepad and do some find and replace
19:06:08Camjpno ok
19:06:19SliMMsupposing you keep the same folder structure on your mp3 playes as in your computer
19:06:24SliMMor a similar one
19:06:44SliMMdo you know anything about relative paths?
19:06:56Camjpnuh no
19:07:33SliMMthen just put your playlist in a folder called "Playlists" on your mp3player
19:08:12SliMMand use '../' before the path to the mp3 file, when find&replacing
19:08:36Camjpno ok
19:08:54SliMMif your file is in x:\music\x.mp3, in your playlist it should look like ../music/x.mp3
19:09:24SliMMuse slashes (/) instead of backslashes (\)
19:09:34SliMMbut you can create playlists in rockbox
19:10:26SliMMpress the select button (for 1-2 sec) > playlist catalog > add to [new] playlist
19:10:40jhMikeShmmm...I'd think the continued activity on the CPU would finish the writes...can't say I see garbage on any lines anymore
19:10:43***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
19:11:12SliMMpress the select button while the cursor is over the music file you want to add in the playlist
19:12:48toni1during playback it is ok, but simply scrolling lines without playback shows the effect
19:12:53SliMMwhat do you think of some meta tags for the rockbox site
19:13:09SliMMSEO is pretty good
19:13:29Camjpnok thanks
19:14:14SliMMcamjpn: that's ok

19:17:20SliMMif not, extract it's contents to x:\.rockbox\
19:17:39SliMMby 'it' i mead the archive
19:18:40Camjpnand then once i disconnect, go to the themes, choose it
19:18:42Camjpnand it should work?
19:18:47SliMMi suppose you know how to apply it

19:24:17Hilikusquick question, im plannig on setting up a development station here, ive looked at a lot of compiling tutorials for rockbox and all of them say you need either vmware or cygwin, i hate emulators, i want to do it in a real linux box but i havent found any tutorials about it, is it not possible to do it in true linux? is there a reason why it HAS TO be in vmware or cygwin?
19:24:26pearldiverColdSphinX^ here?
19:24:31InsectoidTrue Linux is just dandy.
19:24:44Camjpnhey, but now for the album art, i got this marajuana leaf T_T
19:25:08SliMMyou need a special rockbox build
19:25:23Camjpnok well, now how do i load up some album art =D
19:25:28SliMMbut you're better off without the album art
19:25:39Camjpnwell, i dont want to look like a stoner T_T
19:25:47SliMMyou find a build with album art in the forums
19:25:48Camjpnall the songs have a marajuana leaf as the album art
19:25:56SliMMthat's the first step
19:26:24SliMMthen, you just have to make album art for every album

19:29:20Insectoidto, not do
19:29:22SliMMhilikus, there should be a script somewhere to install all the tools needed for compiling

23:18:35job_anyone here?
23:21:35job_you wouldn't happen to know anything about the mp3 encoder chip (MAS3587F) would you?
23:21:50 Quit movezig (Remote closed the connection)
23:23:16job_yeah no problem, I've been trying to talk to the manufacture but they're being elusive...
23:26:13jhMikeSThe datasheet is available so what's the problem? I don't really know much about it though.
23:31:27job_I have the datasheet, I can't get the chip to power up consistently. I think it may be a problem with how I'm doing the power-on reset but the datasheet has about two sentences on it.

23:32:19jhMikeSah, amiconn would probably be your man to talk to on this one
23:33:42linuxstb_Have you looked at the Rockbox source?
23:37:00job_yeah the reset code looks similar to mine. Do you know how I could get ahold of amiconn? or would the forums and mailinglist be the best option?

23:37:26peturamiconn is online here a lot
23:37:28linuxstb_Here's here often, so your best option is to just wait until he reads the logs
23:37:59linuxstb_LinusN is probably worth asking as well if he appears.

23:49:19rifti want to take screen of rockbox like that
23:49:29riftanybody know ?
23:49:56LloreanTurn on the screen capture option in the Debug menu. Then, every time you plug in USB it'll take a screendump.
23:50:04LloreanTurn it off when you're ready to use USB like normal again
