00:48:38Topyits not great, but its definately worth leaving enabled or at least it should be an option in the configuration tool

00:51:01Topyit acts strangely though, probably because its set up to work with a hx00 (more gain steps)
00:51:21Topyand it should be deactivated if source is set to mic
00:51:30Topy(only 2 gain settings)
00:53:32element_GHi everyone, At the moment I'm taking my first try at coding the bootloader for the gigabeat. I'm interested in getting the screen rotation patch to work, and I know this involves making a new bootloader. I know the idea is to have the bootloader load rockbox.gigabeat if no buttons are pressed on boot, and load rockbox_1.gigabeat if up is held during boot. I know the iPod has a mechanism that is something like this for the original
00:53:32element_Gt is a bootloader that loads the rotated firmware.

01:02:06Topythe default "AGC max. gain" value was a non working far-out setting, pressing left once got me into reasonable range

01:13:50pixelmawow... and I thought the peakmeters in the official build were big... but congrats. :)
01:14:10Soul-SlayerHey, currently on the H10, whilst on the WPS, the 'next' button does nothing... Would it be possible/easy to map it to view the current playlist? I usually navigate through my database to choose the songs, then it constructs the playlist, and if I press the back button to go on to the next song (by the same artist), it reconstructs the playlist, which takes longer to change track... Currently if I want to use the same playlist, I'd have to hold the 'ne
01:14:21Soul-SlayerWooooow I didn't realise how much I just wrote, sorry :$
01:14:56pearldiverelement_G i hope you'll get somewhere with that
01:15:20Topypixelma, i set them to 4x, i like big peakmeters :) besides, the space isnt used for anything else

01:16:52Topyi will do some intense testing of the AGC on X5 tomorrow, but until now, i really cant see why it was deactivated
01:17:09Topysure, its not as elegant as on H100/H300, but its far from useless

02:16:31perldiverJdGordon here?
02:17:17perldiverthis small thing really bothers me hehe, viewer icons don't work in the tango set and i have no idea why
02:17:30perldiverall the config files seem to be in order
02:17:41JdGordonperldiver: does the .icons file have 'm' instead of '*' ?
02:17:50perldiveri mean
02:17:51JdGordonso fix it :)
02:17:54perldiverit has "*"
02:18:06perldiverauthor removed "m" a while ago
02:19:01JdGordonhmm... im heading to uni now... ill have a look ina few hours when i get bacl
02:20:14perldiverit just displays icon number 16 from the main set
02:20:27perldiverwhich is happen to be a "bulb" and used for the System menu
02:24:45SoapI was curious about that myself, but hadn't digged in too far, as this was my first day with the fancy icons.
02:26:06Lloreanperldiver: There was a bug like that a while ago.
02:26:22LloreanIt used the "system menu" icon for all the build in filetypes.
02:26:28Lloreanbuilt in, rather
02:26:35perldiverhow come the other set works?
02:26:55LloreanWhich set isn't working?
02:27:39LloreanAnd what's not working?
02:27:52perldiveri just explained :P
02:28:05Lloreanperldiver: I don't know what "it" means
02:28:22LloreanIs it all viewers, specific viewers, or what?
02:28:30LloreanAre MP3s given the proper icon, or no, etc?
02:29:08perldiverall the icons from the tango_viewers.20x16x16 don't work
02:29:15perldivericons from the main set work OK
02:29:33pixelmamaybe the viewer icon set has the wrong dimensions? (just throwing an idea out as I didn't look into that topic much so far)
02:30:12LloreanGimme a minute to play with it
02:30:28perldiverpixelma it was working properly before a few days ago
02:31:39Lloreanperldiver: It works for me
02:31:43Lloreanperldiver: Oh, wait, one sec
02:31:56*Llorean forgot to update the build from earlier
02:32:08LloreanWell, specifically, forgot to restart the player with the updated build

02:35:58 Quit jhulst (Remote closed the connection)
02:36:35Lloreanperldiver: m vs * only matters for the non-viewer icons
02:38:05Llorean* tells it to use them from the main file rather than the viewers file
02:41:31perldiverany luck?
02:42:05LloreanTesting some things
02:45:06LloreanThat's very strange.
02:45:23LloreanI have no clue, and my other iconset works fine
02:45:28LloreanThough it's much smaller
02:46:30LloreanClearly the .icons file is being parsed, but at the same time it seems to ignore it, or fail after.

02:54:48Lloreanzorton: Are you using an official build?
02:55:05LloreanThen you're only using it for videos right now.
02:55:06zorton.cfg file created by rockbox r13005-070402
02:55:15zortonhaven't tried videos yet
02:55:20LloreanIt has some problems that make it unsafe (crashes) for normal use.
02:55:30zortonis there an advantage in terms of battery power to firing up the other processor?
02:55:32LloreanThat's a bit of an old build.
02:55:45LloreanIt's hard to tell until we can actually test it.
02:56:24zortoni'm looking at ipod from an ssh connection so i'm uncertain which build it is
02:56:35zortonis there a way to tell by looking at the files in ~/.rockbox?
02:57:34LloreanYou told me the .cfg file said that version.
02:57:39*zorton nods
02:57:51LloreanThat's the version from 23 days ago or so
02:58:02zortoni'm assuming it's created once and updated only when you change settings
02:58:10zortonI maynot have changed any settings since then :)
02:58:18zortonI guess I could just download the latest and be done with it
02:58:20LloreanIt's updated on shutdown.
02:58:39zortonok, then it's time to update
02:58:47zortonis there progress on the recording stuff on the nano?
02:59:10zortoni've recorded a bunch of clips but having no gain control means I have to push in more than I would like to
02:59:15LloreanNobody's really working on iPod recording right now
02:59:35zortonshame that
03:00:05zortonit's a very useful feature for me at anyrate
03:00:11LloreanWell, feel free to work on it
03:00:17zortoni'm tempted :)
03:00:33zortonwhere has most of the work been lately
03:03:35LloreanIn all kinds of places.
03:03:39LloreanJust wherever people are interested
03:04:06zortonI was really impressed when the recording stuff worked on the nano
03:04:22zortonquite a few nay sayers in the ipod linux forumn said it could never be done

04:53:05Soapjust have to worry about breaking buttons.
04:53:27Rob24well if you dont need to PRESS the buttons
04:54:05Rob24it would be like it is in with the rom just touch the buttons and dont need to press then you wont breack anything (speaching about ipod)

04:55:52Rob24well, im a big fat newb that cant program so dont look at me
04:56:33LloreanWell it's in C++, so a _lot_ of work would probably need to be done

05:02:42SoapHow is the font (verticaly) oriented in the line? always centered?
05:02:58LloreanRight now, always centered.
05:03:07LloreanIt was originally justified to the top of the line
05:03:20LloreanAnd I believe the author said it'd be quite easy to justify to the bottom
05:04:08LloreanBut of course, it has that scrolling issue
05:04:11Soapjust curious.
05:04:22SoapI wasn't planning on using it, just thinking of how it /could/ be used.
05:04:40LloreanAnd if it's too complicated to be done elegantly (which it seems like it might be now), might as well stick with the viewports solution
05:04:55LloreanIt didn't really do anything viewports couldn't do, it just had the potential to not require viewports for some basic functions
05:06:37Soapa viewport per line of text multiplied times the number of viewports with text in them sounds like it could get large fast.
05:06:52LloreanYeah, in terms of buffer use at least.

05:11:49NineTeen67CometHi all .. I beleive my wife's Ipod is a Gen4 grey scale but I'm not sure .. is there a sure fire way to tell? It looks like the pic .. on this page ..

05:12:35Soapnote the buttons below the screen on the third generation ipods.
05:12:55NineTeen67CometNo buttons .. just the wheel and a screen ..
05:12:56Soapthe first and second generation ipods had four curved buttons surrounding the wheel.
05:13:01NineTeen67Comet20gig ..
05:13:16NineTeen67Cometnkay . it's a gotta be a 4th gen ..
05:13:42Soapthen it be a 4th, as it is the only greyscale - full size - ipod with buttons integrated into the wheel.
05:14:01NineTeen67Cometsecondly .. I have been looking for the Linux instructions .. in the firmware section the manual says to double click the .exe file, but that's not a good deal in *nix ..
05:14:57LloreanThe linux section of the manual shouldn't tell you to do that...

06:32:41snookumsHi all .. I just tossed rockbox on the wifes gen 4 greyscale ipod and it seems to be pretty good stuff. She would however like to toss all her music and start over. We use Rythembox (linux) or simply use the file browser to move all the files/directories out of iPod_Control-Music? then update database again?
06:34:20EbErTi wouldn't pick them outta ipodcontrol, they're all labeled funny
06:35:01EbErTif you aren't going to use itunes, just dump them in again, its easy to update the database
06:35:07snookumsWell I was going to just move them all over to the computer so she could load them all back up via rythembox .. they are all names F## ..
06:35:49snookumsthe database will find them no matter what directory I put them correct? I was going to make a Music directory and drop all her music in there for the database to find .. /root/Music type ..
06:36:04*snookums on the ipod
06:36:55Soapcorrect on the database question.
06:37:12Soapwhich is why you don't have to move them if you want to use the database.
06:37:13EbErTyeah, it will. but you dont have the music on her computer?
06:37:19snookumsThe way iTunes did it she didn't like, so she'd just assume toss all iTunes junk and do it her self with the file browser and or/rythembox ..

07:01:28LloreanEasier by my standards, yes
07:01:32LloreanNo stupid software to deal with

07:52:21amiconnThe part which is in bootloader/ for swcodec targets is in flash/bootbox/
07:53:24amiconnbootloader/ (and flash/bootloader/) are just the "app" part; both use the firmware lib for firmware functions
07:54:33JdGordonam I wrong in thinking a possible way of getting bootbox down is just removing the unused files in /firmware? or is there a better way?
07:55:08amiconnUnused code isn't linked to it
07:56:42*JdGordon gotta run
07:56:50amiconnAnd for both bootloaders and bootbox, the firmware lib is compiled with -ffunction-sections -fdata-sections, and linking uses −−gc-sections

10:18:53cropJdGordon: on a related note: when viewing a saved playlist, its name doesn't appear anywhere. Is it a feature or a bug? For on the fly list, we could use 'dynamic.' I.e. we could show the name that would be given when the playlist is (about to be) saved.
10:20:13JdGordonunless there is a string for dynamic playlist already i think its a waste...
10:20:17JdGordonPlaylist is fine there a special stick that i can use prod people to discuss things on my dev-ml thread?

10:22:09JdGordonscorche: its the +b stick
10:22:18JdGordonban everyone from irc and thats all thats left..
10:22:40scorchei wouldnt mind if there was discussion about it here either ;)
10:23:53JdGordonwhich "it" shall we discuss?

10:27:08webguest89hello, related to playlist, I have a question:
10:27:37jhMikeSJdGordon: hey, don't make go all the way over there to kick your ass :D
10:28:02scorchejhMikeS: your status on devcon-w?
10:28:11webguest89why I cannot edit an m3u without played it and saved it?
10:28:56webguest89I mean I open playlist and have all the tracks.... and if I remove and move tracks, the changes won't be changed
10:29:08webguest89is this intended or bug?
10:29:52webguest89I need to start the playlist and then make the changes on the fly and then save the current playlist (overwritting the previous one)
10:30:03webguest89things could be easier :)
10:32:30jhMikeSscorche: June 30th? Bad date really. That's the up north time.

10:39:34cropwebguest89: isn't the playlist you've opened then the current playlist?
10:40:05jhMikeSprobably not June location set?...'less I missed a message
10:40:28scorchenot really, although we are leaning heavily towards vegas
10:40:41webguest89no, I mean in the file browser I just go to playlist and call context menu for show me the list, and then I edit it w/out played it, but the changes aren't saved ie: the moves delete...*
10:41:43webguest89is this behaviour wanted or this is a bug or something?
10:42:12cropwebguest89: I'm not sure what happens if you open a playlist via 'open with'. Is it a core feature of RB or a plugin?
10:44:40markunB4gder: wow, I got a mail back from Toshiba and they corrected the factual error on their site, pretty quick!
10:45:24jhMikeSmarkun: factual error?
10:45:51markunjhMikeS: the Gigabeat Australia website stated the Gigabeat X has an OLED screen
10:46:15markunwhich appeared in the wikipedia as one of the benefits of the X over the S
10:46:57markunI removed it from wikipedia and someone put it back
10:48:03jhMikeSaren't those just experimental atm?
10:48:16markunwhich are?

10:50:35cropwebguest89: I assume only the current playlist can be saved. And if you just open a playlist without playing it it isn't the current one
10:50:54cropwebguest89: but it's only my assumption
10:51:21webguest89that is the point, you can sew it and move or remove tracks, but cannot save
10:51:24jhMikeSscorche: I'm thinking but I just don't know's not like things run on a regular schedule here, it really is per-job determined
10:51:28webguest89doesn't sounds to logical
10:52:16scorchejhMikeS: alright...a maybe is alright....if you can, can you please add yourself to the wiki page?
10:52:23markunwebguest89: doesn't sound logical to me either. How dow you open the playlist without playing it?
10:52:36SliMMhow do i set the colour in the grayscale lib?

10:54:06webguest89but pity changes canot be saved
10:54:30webguest89we can modify things and all, seems to be the hard part, and just for save; nothing :(
10:54:48markunwebguest89: use the source luke
10:55:05markun(source code)
10:55:32webguest89I don't have enough skills I think, plus I don't know the source code at all
10:55:49markunnon of us knew the source code before we started working on it
10:56:11webguest89who was the one made the rockbox playlist stuff?
10:56:23webguest89maybe he know how to do
10:56:47cropI think the first thing to look at is what "Save playlist" does, i.e. what playlist is saved. Or does the menu just lack the entry for save?
10:57:08markunwebguest89: many people have worked on rockbox playlist stuff:
10:57:44webguest89crop save plalist only happen when the playlist is playing
10:58:45webguest89markun: wow, impressive !
10:58:56cropwebguest89: so there is not menu entry?
10:59:20webguest89crop: do you have any rockbox device for see it yourself? :)

11:00:07cropwebguest89: not right now
11:00:10webguest89crop: the playlist menu when you select a m3u file, just contain the "show playlist" string
11:00:17cropwebguest89: otherwise I wouldn't ask
11:00:42webguest89and when you enter in it you have the playlist and you are seeing the list during playback
11:01:08webguest89then you can edit it and all, but once you made your changes when you exit, nothing saved
11:01:41webguest89crop: tried simulators?
11:02:02amiconnhardeep is the main mr. playlist
11:02:23cropwebguest89: well, I think a playlist is never saved automatically. After editing, you have to call up the context menu and select 'Save' Do you have that 'save' entry?

11:07:17cropwebguest89: the next step would be to see why the entry isn't there. Just because it's not or because it wouldn't make sense there (i.e. we're not able to save a list not being played). But I have no time to do it now. This is a good chance for you to get taste of RB.
11:07:31jhMikeSfrom 4205 bytes to 104237 ... heh
11:08:09webguest89I don't know if this could be usufull for rockbox or just for me ???
11:08:31webguest89but imho have the possibility to edit any playlist could be fine
11:08:58*B4gder never edited a single playlist with Rockbox...
11:09:01webguest89crop: just need that someone code it, like always
11:09:25webguest89B4gder: but can you see the use, or do you think is usuless?
11:09:46B4gderi know people think of it a great feature
11:10:28webguest89I mean edit any playlist even isn't playing (thing that we don't have yet)
11:10:45JdGordonI tihnk it can edit playlists on disk
11:10:58B4gdergiven that we don't have it and I don't even think there's a ferature-request for it, i doubt it is a very large demand
11:11:12webguest89JdGordon: folowed the discussion?
11:11:30scorchewebguest89: you can always use the text editor ;)
11:11:34webguest89B4gder: I don't like much fill feature request
11:11:36*JdGordon hasnt
11:11:37B4gderbut I'm not shooting it down, it just is outside of what I care about
11:11:46LinusNthere is a bug in the playlist editor, it can't save the playlist currently in use
11:12:01webguest89scorche: indeed, but hard when you want to move plenty tracks removes...
11:13:03webguest89easier with the playlist viewer
11:13:47cropIMHO editing a playlist should sit in a plugin and not in the core
11:14:21webguest89LinusN: you can save current playlist here, but canot save your changes when the playlist isn't playing
11:14:44webguest89crop: imho playlist viwer like we have now is the better way
11:14:57webguest89it just lak of save changes
11:15:10webguest89you can edit it and all, but not save
11:15:19B4gderwebguest89: you wouldn't see much difference if it were a plugin or not
11:15:21SliMMhow do i make a plugin a viewer?
11:15:47webguest89thing B4gder: more HD access no?
11:16:07B4gdera playlist will require loads of it anyway
11:16:31webguest89but that will take a bit more time with plugin no? (time in ms)

11:44:07SliMMyes, yes, but i didn't get that error on sim build
11:44:22SliMMthere is no #ifdef SIMULATOR
11:44:41SliMMi also see no memcpy
11:44:56petursim uses pc implementation of memcpy, on target you only have what's available
11:45:02SliMMmemcpy isn't called anywhere
11:45:12peturisn't it part of the plugin api?
11:45:45cropSliMM: it should be called as api->memcpy(...)
11:45:48linuxstbgcc will be using memcpy to initialise a variable.
11:46:04linuxstbSo you need to give it an implementation - just a small wrapper function calling rb->memcpy()
11:46:31SliMMlinuxstb: i don't get it
11:46:52linuxstbgcc will be adding a call to memcpy on your behalf.
11:47:00linuxstbmemcpy doesn't exist, hence the problem.
11:47:24croplinuxstb: that sound weird to me too
11:47:35SliMMso i should declare a void memcpy();?
11:48:25croplinuxstb: gcc uses memcpy to initialsi vars? memcpy is not a part of C, how can this ever be?
11:48:26linuxstbNo, you shoulddefine "void *memcpy(void *dest, const void *src, size_t n) { rb->memcpy(dest,src,n); }"
11:50:17linuxstbBTW, that should be ... { return rb->memcpy(dest,src,n); }
11:50:47intgrcrop: memcpy is definitely defined by all C standards. :)
11:51:29cropintgr: it's part of the C standard library but not of the language itselb. So I can' beleive gcc adds calls to it
11:52:12amiconncrop: Gcc does use memcpy internally for variable initialisation and struct copying
11:53:20amiconnWhen an application is compiled with -ffreestanding, like rockbox, memcpy and a few other memory functions must be provided by the application
11:53:28amiconnThis is documented behaviour of gcc

11:54:25amiconn...or if they do, they have it defined like linuxstb told
11:54:37cropamiconn: thanks for clarification. So each plugin that uses some static vars must define memcpy?
11:54:51amiconnNo, only if gcc actually tries to use memcpy
11:55:12SliMMamiconn: when does it try to use memcpy?
11:55:24cropamiconn: and for is it used for? To initialise vars? Which ones? Static?

13:02:41Topy44i did not get any answer yesterday, so again:
13:03:04Topy44i suspect this noise is created by harddisk access due to ground problems
13:03:20Topy44can anyone confirm that? is anyone else getting this type of noise
13:03:31Topy44recorded with an X5L with external mics
13:03:38preglowsounds like hd access
13:03:40Topy44first the original recording, then normalized
13:03:56preglowmight not even be ground problems
13:04:04preglowthe hd emits pretty strong stuff
13:04:16Topy44hm yes
13:04:30preglowthat's the cons of recording with something that pretty much sits on top of a hard disk
13:04:32Topy44i wonder if there is SOME way of getting rid of that noise, its seriously annoying
13:04:47preglowthe only way i see if it is the disk, is recording with a higher external gain
13:04:51preglowmic amp or some such
13:04:56preglowto utilise all the headroom you have
13:05:16Topy44yes, i was recording at very low gain as i could not access the recorder during concerts
13:05:23Topy44so i had to guess the gain setting
13:05:36Topy44now with AGC working on the X5, that will be less of a problem
13:05:37preglowbut i don't know how loud the hd usually is on x5
13:05:43preglowon h120, i can hear the hd too, when recording
13:05:59preglowvery silent, but i can hear it
13:06:02Topy44i must open up the x5 at some point
13:06:09Topy44and see if there is room for any mods
13:06:19Topy44for example shielding between harddisk and PCB
13:06:25preglowon the bright side, you shouldn't get the noise too often
13:06:30preglowdepends what format you record to, of course
13:06:46Topy44uncompressed wave usually
13:07:08Topy44i need maximum battery capacity, the question is what uses more: compressing the data or accessing the harddisk more often

13:07:21preglowand a good question it is
13:07:34B4gderdo 10 recordings with each and tell us the outcome!
13:07:50preglowbut with that noise, i'd go for wavpack anyway
13:07:56preglowbetter quality recordings > battery time
13:08:18Topy44that might be a good idea, i need to do some long recordings anyway to try to localize the FAT-corruption bug i had the first time...
13:08:45Topy44preglow, well, if i miss half the festival because of empty batteries it wont do much good :)
13:09:22Topy44i seem to get the noise pretty often... do you know how much the X5 will buffer before writing to disk?
13:09:26croppreglow: will there be HD artifacts if an external mic or line is is used?
13:09:38Topy44crop, i AM using an external mic with a preamp
13:09:45Topy44heres my setup:
13:09:51preglowcrop: sure
13:09:54linuxstbTopy44: The X5 has 16MB RAM, so I'm guessing it will write about 13MB-14MB at a time.
13:09:55preglowcrop: but less than with internal mic, ig uess
13:10:27Topy44well, the internal mic will get actual noise from the harddisk, all i'm getting with the external mic is electrical interference
13:10:33croppreglow: how does the signal from the HD gets into the sound? Are the two circuits connected?
13:10:46preglowcrop: everything in a dap is connected
13:10:51Topy44the internal mic is very sensitive and not decoupled from the unit, so it directly records the vibrations of the hd
13:10:55preglowcrop: but with a hd, you get some pretty strong em radation too
13:11:06preglowradiation, yes
13:11:25Topy44i will open up my x5 and try adding shielding, and meaby some filtering caps on the hd power lines
13:11:37Topy44meaby adding a ferrite around its data cable aswell
13:11:41Topy44something like that
13:11:44preglowworth a shot
13:11:53Topy44(IF i can fit it, i guess its gonna be VERY tight inside the unit
13:11:55preglowthe power line probably already has caps, though
13:12:01preglowand you don't really need to filter a battery that much
13:12:11preglowbut anywho, always worth a shot
13:12:34Topy44i really like the x5, and i mainly use it for recording, but with that noise... thats not much fun
13:12:48preglowyou could try getting something else
13:12:53preglownever got that loud noise with h1x0
13:13:00Topy44well, the problem is:
13:13:01preglowit's audible, but not that bad
13:13:06Topy44i just bought the x5 a few weeks ago
13:13:08Topy44brand new
13:13:15Topy44i let it drop the first day :)
13:13:22Topy44so it got a ugly scratch
13:13:29Topy44so i couldnt sell it at the price i paid
13:13:45amiconnYou can't fit ferrite around the data cable
13:13:49amiconnAbsolutely no room
13:13:53preglowwell, having two rockbox capable devices is surely never a bad idea :)
13:13:57Topy44yeah, expected that
13:14:14Topy44preglow, i seriously blew my budget with my recording equipment as it is already :)
13:14:41preglowwell, at least that can be reused :)

14:29:51B4gderI wouldn't call TEA+DSA "security through obscurity"
14:30:03linuxstbBut wasn't the bootloader unencrypted for the Sansa? i.e. giving you both the algorithm and the key...
14:30:06intgrTEA and DSA theirselves aren't obscure; the implementation is.
14:30:49B4gderyes, the bootloader was/is unencrypted so they kind of showed their cards
14:31:19intgrHmm, actually I can find plain ASCII strings in the .bin files of mine. Should try changing them.
14:31:28amiconnlinuxstb: If there wouldn't be unencrypted code together with the unencrypted key, the unit couldn't boot...
14:32:16linuxstbamiconn: I'm talking about the copy of the bootloader which is on the disk prior to flashing.
14:32:25linuxstbOn the 2nd gen Nano for example, that's encrypted.
14:32:34B4gderthey could've left the unencrypted stuff on a flash
14:32:39B4gderwhich makes things harder

14:34:01intgrWell, most chips I would presume.

17:02:49Topy44thats what i'm afraid of

17:04:06Topy44there is some basic hiss aswell, but thats not as disturbing
17:04:57Topy44there is an even higher frequency noise as soon the supack is connected
17:05:25Topy44and very faint mains humm when the power supply is connected

17:24:14Topy44yes, i think its a ground problem

17:24:56markunlinuxstb: well, he had it on supported and they didn't show up, right?
17:24:59Topy44if the noise stays the same, its definately caused by ground problems, not shielding
17:25:32linuxstbPz: Do you have rockboy.rock in .rockbox/viewers/ ? And do you have a line for .gb files in .rockbox/viewers.config ?

17:47:02LloreanThat way they don't have to be bothered with supporting them, just demand the computer do it.
17:47:36linuxstbIsn't part of the soundbridge open source? I don't know if that's the server software, or the firmware though...

17:49:37linuxstbApple would make you buy the lcd separately if they could get away with it...

17:50:44Soul-SlayerI'm considering buying a new DAP, and now I'm so accustomed to Rockbox I'm more interested in getting one that supports it... Does anyone know which target would be best to run Rockbox stably, largish colour screen and large capacity?
17:50:45Topy44ok, no lcd available for it...
17:50:59LloreanSoul-Slayer: Gigabeat F or X series
17:51:34Soul-SlayerThank you, I'll look into them
17:52:57Soul-SlayerWhat is the difference between the F and X series?
17:54:08 Quit Pz (Remote closed the connection)
17:55:10LloreanWhat they look like.
17:55:21linuxstbSoul-Slayer: The X is very hard to find, so it's probably irrelevent...
17:55:31LloreanThe X has a slightly larger screen, though the same number of pixels, and a slightly smaller case
17:55:37LloreanIt also *might* have a slightly smaller battery
17:55:38Soul-SlayerFair enough - The F seems to be pretty elusive right now too, lol.
17:55:58linuxstbThere were a large number on ebay last time I checked (a few days ago).
17:56:12LloreanEveryone who bought one for $99 just so they could sell it for $150
17:56:13Soul-SlayerI trust the number following the F/X refers to it's capacity?
17:56:40linuxstbNote that if you're looking to upgrade the disk in the future, the F10/20 have smaller cases than the F40/60
17:56:55Soul-SlayerSo all of them are supported with Rockbox? I'm not going to run into a problem like the 80gb ipod?
17:57:07LloreanAs in "no you won't run into a problem"
17:57:10LloreanSince you asked two questions.
17:57:11Soul-SlayerGreat, okay
17:57:17Soul-SlayerTrue, sorry, lol.
17:57:32LloreanThe 80gb iPod is more or less a special case.
17:57:34markunSoul-Slayer: don't buy the Gigabeat S by mistake
17:57:53markunit might be supported in future, but it isn't right now
17:58:00Soul-SlayerOkay, thank you
17:58:20Soul-SlayerI remember a while back people were praising the H3XX, has the Gigabeat overtaken that now?
17:58:35Soul-SlayerOr is it a question of preference?
17:58:44LloreanIt's a matter of what you want from a device
17:58:50LloreanYou listed a large color screen and high capacity
17:59:10 Quit datachild (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
17:59:11linuxstbThe Gigabeat has a much faster processor, so is capable of more things - e.g. video playback, playing games like rockboy and pacbox at the same time as listening to music.
17:59:17markunSoul-Slayer: the Gigabeat doesn't have recording or FM radio
17:59:27Soul-SlayerYes, that's important, I currently have a 6gb H10, which has neither of those.
17:59:28LloreanThe Gigabeat also has twice the display area (in pixels) of the H300
17:59:35Soul-SlayerThat's fine, I have my H10 for recording and radio
18:00:07Topy44PHEW! i just thought i lost a screw
18:00:38Soul-SlayerWhat about chances of 'bricking' a player whilst putting rockbox on? Do either players require flashing?
18:01:15linuxstbThe h300 requires flashing, but afaik, no-one has ever bricked one with Rockbox.
18:01:30LloreanWith the Gigabeat, they're fairly safe. If you do something wrong, they're recoverable, though it requires opening them and disconnecting the disk as a step, but you shouldn't ever get to that point
18:01:44LloreanAs long as you follow the instructions it's just a file copy
18:01:57Soul-SlayerOkay, great :)
18:02:07*Topy44 likes his basicly un-brickable x5 :)
18:02:10Soul-SlayerTime to hunt ebay for F series Gigabeats then :p.
18:03:02Soul-SlayerOh yes, one more issue, battery life
18:03:04linuxstbSoul-Slayer: I think around $100 USD is the going rate for an F40.
18:03:20linuxstbI think it's around 15-16h
18:03:39Soul-SlayerGreat :p I'm used to getting like 4 hours on my H10
18:04:38Soul-SlayerSo that would be around £50? That's very cheap :o
18:05:29Soul-SlayerOh wow, you were right, ebay is swarmed with F40s, lol

19:12:03vertic23I think that mp3 would be enough - am I wrong?
19:12:05Topy44i dont understand what you are trying to tell me :)
19:12:10Topy44no its not

19:12:41Topy44so the mp3 artifacts get much more present
19:12:52Topy44edited, yes, but a lot of eq-ing and so on
19:13:11vertic23ok, I understand you

19:13:21 Quit Guile ("KVIrc 3.2.0 'Realia'")
19:13:27Topy44mp3 works by leaving out stuff you dont usually hear anyway
19:13:34Topy44but if you amplify and twist around the signal
19:13:42vertic23I gotcha
19:13:52Topy44you get to hear the parts that the mp3 encoder considered "neglectable"
19:14:13vertic23but... in case you only want to "rip" a cd
19:14:26vertic23mp3 is "ok", right?
19:14:41Topy44then, of course, recording directly to mp3 is fine, even though the internal encoder is probably not the same quality as a properly set up lameenc
19:14:41 Join JavaMan22 [0] (
19:14:42vertic23I mean.. you plugin a CD-Player - record ...
19:14:50Topy44but why would you do that?
19:14:52vertic23it is not lame used?
19:14:57vertic23is it possible to use lame though?
19:15:25vertic23should be
19:15:45amiconnlame is a very high quality encoder not suitable for realtime operation
19:16:00Topy44its faster, easier and better quality to rip a cd on the computer and transfer the finished mp3s to the player, there wouldnt be many occasions where you'd actually want to record from a cd to your x5...
19:16:11amiconnrockbox' mp3 encoder is based on the shine encoder
19:16:21Topy44the cpu of the x5 and most other targets wouldnt be anywhere fast enough for lame probably
19:16:45vertic23maybe in some years then
19:16:48Topy44still, for most people, the quality is good enough
19:17:01***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
19:17:07Topy44in some years, we wont be using mp3, we'll all just use lossless compression formats...
19:17:12amiconnMy estimation is that lame -preset standard would take 10..20x the playtime of the encoded file on the x5 cpu
19:17:21Topy44since we all carry around DAPs with 4tb memory :)
19:17:25amiconnI.e. encoding a 3 minute track would take 30..60 minutes
19:17:44vertic23would suck :P
19:17:51vertic23could use my laptop then
19:18:01Topy44umh, you are missing the point
19:18:08 Quit bospaadje ("great minds run in great circles")
19:18:27Topy44ah, sorry, I am missing the point, i thought you were talking about my vision of 4tb DAPs :)
19:18:51vertic23tell me more about those DAPs
19:18:55vertic23how do they look
19:19:09vertic23do they have a chip with rockbox maybe?
19:19:26Topy44probably they are implanted into your brain stem.
19:19:44Topy44and use your brain for storage
19:19:51vertic23like in that movie
19:19:57vertic23with keanur reaves
19:21:35Topy44you loose control over your left arm and the ability to do additions in your head, but hey, who needs that if you can have a DAP playing music directly OUT of your memory INTO your memory! :)
19:22:21Topy44ANYWAY, lets get a little more serious.
19:22:26vertic23there is a superfluent "transfer" imho
19:22:45Topy44i'll start reading myself into the rockbox code tonight
19:23:07Topy44and will see if its doable without to much trouble to sync hd writes to audio peaks...

22:24:30preglowahh, yes, the stock ubuntu is totally unsuited to christians, so this is a good initiative
22:24:46preglowwhat with the satanic wallpapers and startup jingle performed by darkthrone
22:24:49*petur mutters beeruntu
22:24:56mutantpineappleand doom running at 160x120
22:25:14mutantpineapplepreglow: not a fish sticker in sight
22:26:18mutantpineappleand the fsck has been renamed f*ck so as to avoid offending

22:28:39preglowwell, at least ubuntu satanic edition seems to have its followers too
22:28:42preglowso at least there is balance

22:29:11mutantpineapplehaha, fiery spawn...

22:31:47preglowUbuntu Jolly Jesus
22:31:53preglowthese might still end up as official releases!
22:32:07preglownow, for dish-wahsing
22:32:09mutantpineappleyou can imagine the flame wars
22:32:12preglowwashing too
22:32:43Nico_Ppixelma: I fixed the bug you reported earlier about RWPS backdrops

22:55:22*amiconn wonders whether we need to introduce HAVE_LCD one day...
22:55:55Nico_Pamiconn: for the iAudio player that only has a remote ?
22:56:07Nico_Pthe M3, is that it ?
22:56:53amiconnyes, that's the one. But perhaps not even the one that needs such a define, if we make the remote the main display for it
22:57:26miner49erCan anyone tell me how to run the script please? I haven't dissected the script itself yet...
22:57:31amiconnBut there might be others without any lcd (e.g. the shuffle - I know the 1st gen shuffle isn't supported by gcc or other open source compilers)
22:57:38linuxstbminer49er: Just type "make zip"
22:57:49preglowneither the second gen
22:57:52miner49eroh right, cheers
22:57:54preglowthey're both 56k based, afaik
22:58:14preglowrockbox would need to be pretty stripped down for such a player
22:58:19linuxstbSomeone said the other day that the 2nd gen Shuffle has the same ARM chip as the 2nd gen Nano.
22:58:27amiconnNico_P: I am just wondering because of the #if defined(HAVE_REMOTE_LCD) && (LCD_REMOTE_DEPTH > 1) stuff
22:58:27preglowreally now
22:58:41amiconnIt's not symmetric to the checks for main lcd
22:58:46Nico_Pamiconn: I can hardly imagine how rockbox would be usable on a device without a display
22:58:56amiconnVoice UI?
22:59:02linuxstbpreglow: If that's true, then I'm sure it has the same encryption...
22:59:04Nico_Pwhy not
22:59:13amiconnAnd some beeps...
22:59:37Nico_Pamiconn: yeah... btw, how do you find that define ? appropriate ? bloated ?
22:59:51amiconnIt's required
22:59:56 Quit bawb2 (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
23:00:28amiconnYou can't just use #if LCD_REMOTE_DEPTH > 2 because of -wundef
23:02:07amiconn(and the full thing is clearer albeit longish)
23:02:53Nico_Pyeah I was afraid people would find it a bit long but couldn't find a simpler wat to put it
23:03:20Nico_Pmaybe we could replace it by something like HAVE_BACKDROPS ?
23:05:01*Nico_P is studying java for an exam tomorrow :'(
23:05:07preglowjava ://
23:06:42Nico_PI quite like OOP, but I think I prefer .NET over java... never tried C++
23:07:12Nico_PI used to enjoy programming in VB .NET when I was a bit younger :)
23:07:40preglowoop is ok
23:07:46preglowjava is annoying, though
23:07:49preglowc# beats it nicely
23:07:59preglowc++ is annoying too, but better than java
23:08:58peturc++ code can be nice - depends on the programmer. some people manage to make a mess of it ;)
23:09:55Nico_PWhen I get the time I'd like to learn a bit of Qt and KDE programming, that must be quite fun

23:58:47Topy44what might be very cool is a new rhythm game for ipods and other "scroll wheel" devices
