#rockbox log for 2007-05-01

00:01:54TrueJournalsOK... still having a problem with the simulator. The −−debugwps tag doesn't seem to do anyting...

00:15:30stripwaxTrueJournals : - it works for me. what are you trying to do?
00:16:17TrueJournalsWell, the Simplified2D WPS at won't load on my H10 (it shows the default WPS instead of the simplified 2D one)
00:16:23TrueJournalsSo, I figure it's a parsing error
00:16:51stripwaxTrueJournals : - you should get a wps error to stderr (even without the debugwps switch)
00:17:10TrueJournalsI'm using Windows, should it create the file stderr?
00:17:12*Arathis loads newest rockbox to try his simplified 2d version

00:27:19TrueJournalsAh, now THAT seems to have worked
00:29:12TrueJournals%al %fc | %fbkbps%ar%pp/%pe is the line that's giving me problems "Invalid conditional char (not in an open conditional)"
00:29:27TrueJournalsMy guess is that the | indicates a conditional, even though there is no conditional
00:29:35 Part tom56
00:29:40pixelmayes you have to escape it
00:29:42TrueJournalsWhat the | there should do is just output | I'm guessing...
00:29:47TrueJournalshow do I escape it?
00:29:59TrueJournalsOK... let me try that...
00:30:04stripwaxoops. yeah, what pixelma said
00:31:05TrueJournalsOK, now there's another one... let's see...

00:32:24ArathisTrueJournals: I didn't follow rockbox process in the the last month, but I think there where some changes regarding WPS. By that I didn't fix the WPS till now
00:33:18pixelmaTrueJournals: the progress bar is not a conditional - so the question mark is wrong there
00:33:19TrueJournalsArathis: Ah, makes sense... the one big change was that it makes sure WPS files work before they are loaded... so if there
00:33:36TrueJournals was something that worked but was kind of weird... it would have shown fine before
00:34:06TrueJournalsThat was the last thing that was wrong :-D
00:34:20TrueJournalsThanks for the help :-D
00:34:39pixelmaglad it works now :)

02:17:04jimbobukwhat is the format, size of files, format of files etc for getting album cover support in, i dont see a mention of it in the manual
02:17:27scorchebecause it is not in the official version
02:17:32scorcheit uses a patch
02:18:07 Join toffe82 [0] (n=chatzill@
02:18:42jimbobukwill it become official eventually... cover art seems a good thing to compare against the stock ipods these days.
02:18:51jimbobukstarting to like it as is to be honest, it all just works nicely
02:19:16scorcheit isnt currently implemented as we would like it
02:19:29Soapjimbobuk: cover.bmp - no official size - WPS sets size - if you compile with the BMP resize patch you can store them as whatever size your heart desires, otherwise the need to be the size the WPS wants or smaller.
02:20:20scorchejimbobuk: expect this to change with
02:20:31Soapcover.bmp in the directory of the song, so unless you have your music sorted by (at least) album it won't work as intended.
02:21:00jimbobukhmm, sounds like resize is a good idea tho i guess most would expect it at a similar size... larger the better i reckon as the gigabeat screen is asking for it, tho i like having a lot of info crammed on there.
02:21:33jimbobuki will organise by album dirs at least, may nest with artist as i do on pc normally, tho database view may make that redundant

02:22:26Soapdo we _need_ to put my name in it? (Mind you - I don't care - I just fear the wrath of LL)
02:22:37scorchehaha...i find i quite amusing
02:23:00element_GI think that is reason enough to keep the name the way it is
02:23:14TrueJournalsAlthough - "must state which patches are required with appropriate FS#'s" might want to say "must state which patches are required with appropriate FS#'s or URLs" because not all patches are at FS
02:23:32element_Gah, nice ;)
02:24:33SoapThe wiki page is excellent, the only major Issue I feel we have yet to discuss is some methodology for expiring the seal when WPS code changes.
02:24:34element_Gcome to think of it the bit about unsupported builds should require a link too
02:24:35scorchenow we just need midkay to draw us up a "soap's Seal Of Approval" image stamp
02:24:41TrueJournalsAlso, point b at "must use proper filenaming" - I think you mean .bmp, not .cfg
02:24:50jimbobukis it setup to be flat output from first install.. not sure if there are some effects on, this track doesnt sound like i remember
02:25:08Soapjimbobuk: should be flat as a board.

02:35:20jimbobukthat google summer of code change for album art sounds neat.. i guess to switch unofficial versions of rockbox is a case of substituting (and first backing up) files in the .rockbox directory
02:35:45scorcheunless they require a different bootloader, yes
02:36:04jimbobukahh, figures
02:36:16element_GSoap: fight club soap FTW
02:36:56jimbobukthere is a version out somewhere that offers a form of album navigation using thumbnails like
02:37:01jimbobuka bit like cover flow, even.
02:37:35jimbobuki have to say congrats to the folks involved.. the little plugin demos make me itch to have a play with it, is developing them relatively straightforward
02:38:21jimbobukit pretty much blows everything else out of the water for what i like about music playback... navigation could be improved, but thats more down to the hardware not being as smooth as an ipod, tho i have to say i'm getting more used to the gigabeat controls, and they're not bad at all.
02:38:56scorchehow is the hardware in the gigabeeat "not as smooth" as the ipod?
02:39:01jimbobuki've enabled logging... what is needed to get this onto my account, i know of that .php page, which i presume you can even copy the script and install it on your own server
02:39:10jimbobukscorche: well just the scroll wheel really
02:39:36jimbobukand you can't half say that the stock ipod UI is pretty well done, and is intrinsically tied to the hardware its running on
02:39:56jimbobukagreed the headphone out, and power of the CPU in it seems to be pretty special
02:40:42scorcheactually, i hate the non-intuitiveness of the ipod UI
02:40:48scorcheand not sure what you mean by special
02:41:19Soapjimbobuk: I know of no "coverflow" verion of rockbox around.
02:41:19jimbobuki just wonder for the logging what the process is.. say i listen for a few days, and want to upload to grab the log file, put it thorugh the uploader, get it on the site.. what do i then do, do i have to be sure i delete the log off the player for fear of it appending new items to the log and then resubmitting the old ones next time i upload
02:41:38jimbobukSoap: thanks... i thought i'd found it earlier today when searching for gigabeat scrolling on google
02:41:42Soapjimbobuk: there is a LastFM logger wiki page with multiple scripts and programs to sync your log outside the PHP script.
02:42:05jimbobukSoap: ahh sounds better, i'd rather not use a php script unless its the only option
02:42:24Soapjimbobuk: on windows might I suggest LogScrobbler - as it is the one I like, but there are plenty of options for all OSs
02:42:32jimbobukcan you listen for weeks and upload in a burst, is it something that tends to just work more than it doesn't?
02:42:53jimbobukSoap: you may indeed, on my mac atm, and will probably get a program for both
02:43:30SoapLast.FM won't take submissions dated prior to your last submission, so if you listen at home on your PC, and on your Gigabeat you will have issues unless you use a log submission program which will fake the time stamps on your Gigabeat submitted files.
02:43:43SoapI upload in weekly bursts.
02:44:23aliaskSeems silly to have that limitation
02:44:59jimbobukhmm my PC (before it died) was all setup with foobar doing the scrobbling, i'll probably try to get it sorted again
02:45:05Soapthey call it "spam protection" FWIW
02:45:43jimbobuktricky though, i like the idea of the timings being accurate if it takes the time off the rockbox player
02:45:57jimbobukdoes it give you an error failed to upload anything if a date clash like that occurs
02:46:14Soapdepends on what program you upload with.
02:46:34jimbobukit'd be good to go with normal times when possible, if fail cause PC has submitted something since then switch for that occurence on to what, faking it as being the time you upload?
02:46:43Soaptake that back - I don't _know_ of a program which will detect time clashes for you - I know how to manually check for time clashes with LogScrobbler.
02:47:03jimbobukdoes it have to go back the length of time of the tracks and make it like you've listened to all the tracks submitted, ending roughly at the time you started submitted.. when faking the times
02:47:08SoapI believe they fake by taking current time and working backwards
02:47:15jimbobukmakes sense
02:47:47jimbobukhmm... tempting to have a new id for portable only but thats a bit against the point of it really
02:47:51Soapwhich is, again I believe, how they fake it for the Rockbox players w/o a real-time-clock onboard.

03:57:11jimbobukquickly, if anyone is still here, how do i just add the selected album to my current playlist.. i thought it was A but that seems to now just switch to WPS screen
03:57:25jimbobukjust so i know how to cue up albums, or start an album playing straight away
03:57:34aliaskjimbobuk: Using folder view?
03:57:40jimbobukbut database
03:57:44jimbobukat the moment
03:58:18aliaskNot sure if it works with database, but try holding select on the album "folder" and going to the playlist option, and selecting "insert"
03:59:33jimbobukhmm, error accessing playlist file
04:00:13aliaskLooks like you've found a bug, it definitely shouldn't be doing that.
04:00:17jimbobukgot in a bit of a mess trying to play with that before, it was showing null in the playing window
04:00:22jimbobuku r right with context
04:00:24jimbobukrebooting it
04:00:26jimbobuktrying again
04:00:53jimbobukhmm reboot aint helped
04:01:00jimbobukplaylist file seems borked
04:02:01aliaskThat's odd. I just tried exactly what you just did in the simulator and it worked fine...
04:02:21aliaskTry deleting the playlist_control file in .rockbox
04:02:39jimbobuki tried adding a file directly going to now playing and its now locked up
04:02:46jimbobuki can't turn it off holding power down
04:03:02jimbobukdont want to do the battery switch as i fear it may bork the hdd if its accesing it
04:03:22jimbobukits got my trackname atm, and then (root)(root) after it.. i'm in a theme, maybe thats borked it
04:03:33aliask"in a theme"?
04:03:40jimbobuki'd just selected a theme to try
04:03:47jimbobukdunno if they've all installed properly
04:03:52jimbobukhow can i shut it down?
04:03:54aliaskThat shouldn't matter
04:04:50aliaskIf it's locked up completely then i'd say it's likely not writing to the hdd, so it should be safe enough to use the battery switch.
04:05:14jimbobukif i put it to the ear i can hear the hdd is spinning
04:05:18jimbobukno clicks tho i gues
04:05:27jimbobukthank god for a hard switch.. if it comes back anyways
04:05:35aliaskSpinning is ok, the head will be parked
04:06:01aliaskTry deleting the playlist_control file before trying to play any music again.
04:08:36jimbobukhmm well its back up and playing ok...
04:08:42jimbobuki will try that as it still says error
04:08:51jimbobukperhaps its characters in the meta of the files i'm trying to play?
04:08:57jimbobukits a bit late for me, need to sleep
04:09:45aliaskThe playlist control file doesn't store any metadata
04:10:07aliaskMight want to save the file first to let some devs look at it
04:11:27jimbobukok done it
04:11:32jimbobukwill delete it
04:11:35jimbobuklooks ok to me

04:40:46caposo rockbox has been working great ever since i installed it on the release. like a week ago i did a lot of things at once. i put in the improvement patch for mpegplayer, album art, and i got a new theme.

04:44:20aliaskcapo: The second half of the problem is due to having a different version of rockbox than the plugins are expecting. You need to update ALL files when running a patched build, (including the plugin files)

14:45:33preglowwhy wouldn't swpb work right?
14:45:43jhMikeSmaybe it's broken on PP5020?
14:45:53JdGordonpreglow: its broken with svn on the sansa...
14:45:58preglowsounds thoroughly weird, though
14:46:06preglowthe arm core is just something they get from arm and synthesise from that
14:46:17preglowand all the other byte sized instructions work fine, so shouldn't be a cache issue
14:46:31jhMikeSpreglow: I've not a clue, the memory implementation could be botched perhaps
14:46:50preglowwell, devising some kind of test to see if it's truly broken would be very helpful

14:52:10jhMikeSwell, after boot you've got a cop only running once per second, otherwise sleeping...unless mpegplayer is running. Why should just adding a stupid spinlock to the scheduler effect it that way when the cores will really never touch each other? On top of that, it's not a deadlock error because the other duals work just fine.
14:52:30linuxstbBagder: Has the server move to a different location happened yet?
14:52:39Bagdernope, that happens later this week
14:52:48JdGordonjhMikeS: maybe you sped up the switching which solved the problem?
14:52:54Bagderand it is the other server (build, svn etc)

18:03:25amiconnPersonally, when doing a new port (like the Ondio or the M5), it has top priority for me over any other rockbox work. Of course you might set different priorities...

18:09:03jhMikeSwell, I have no idea why it makes it happen but it affects it
18:09:29amiconnBagder: The list of supported models should probably be fixed. It read <bold>Company:</bold> models... for all companies except Cowon
18:09:57jhMikeSI just figured out the LCD chip in the Sansa is a Renesas chip. I even have it running with inverted colors. :)
18:10:05amiconnI.e. the line for iaudios should read Cowon: iAudio X5 (including X5V and X5L), iAudio M5 (including M5L)
18:10:33amiconnI would fix it myself but the front page still seems to not use the svn www module :(
18:10:51jhMikeSmaybe everyone knew that already though :P
18:11:50amiconnjhMikeS: Which one?
18:12:08*amiconn thought the sansa uses some kind of dma for lcd updates... ?
18:12:12jhMikeSI'm searching datasheet to try and match it, but the REV bit is the same
18:12:40jhMikeSI suppose we could run the x5 and H300 and such with a constant running DMA and a buffer too
18:13:59amiconnX5 can't use DMA unless we're going for a 32 bit framebuffer
18:14:00jhMikeSAs soon as I looked at that startup it seemed a bit familiar
18:14:20jhMikeSActually I have an idea of converting pixels in parallel with DMA transfer using a line buffer
18:14:22amiconnAnd H300 already uses DMA updates
18:14:43amiconn(for ordinary updates, not for the yuv stuff)
18:14:44 Join KCC [0] (
18:14:55jhMikeSbut couldn't you do it with another framebuffer and keep DMA going constantly so that updates are async?
18:15:02amiconnBut I had an idea how to speed up yuv on H300 and X5 a bit more
18:15:33amiconnConstant dma would only work when always transferring the whole framebuffer, which is a waste
18:16:18jhMikeSI think it can speed up if we can do things in parallel for sure, transfer a line to LCD and at the same time convert the pixel format in a second line buffer
18:16:19amiconnAsync updates also create problems
18:17:51amiconnThe idea to speed up yuv on X5 and H300 is as follow: Switch LCD write direction to vertical (!) and limit it to 2 pixels per "line" (which is actually a column because of the switch)
18:18:21 Join web-taz2 [0] (
18:18:22amiconnThis way all 4 pixels with the same chroma are written in sequences, saving the second chroma calculation
18:19:11jhMikeSyes, that could even be employed well on gigabeat and sansa
18:19:58jhMikeSit would increase the access locality as well
18:20:25amiconnyes. Otoh it requires an extra pointer, because both luma rows need to be accessed in the same loop
18:20:51jhMikeSyeah, but CF has 4 accums to store data in
18:22:35amiconnCurrent coldfire yuv code uses 3 of them (one each for R, G and B)
18:22:55amiconnThe advantage is that the EMAC does the clipping for free
18:24:17jhMikeSyeah, that's a nice little thing, wish we had ARMv5

18:47:52PimpdaddypayneIs it possible to make an ipod a startup disk?
18:48:44ender`you mean boot a PC OS from an ipod?
18:49:08ender`depends on your BIOS, but should work
18:51:16intgrIt's a shame that so few BIOSes support booting off USB.
18:52:35PimpdaddypayneSomeone told me they were able to record the "sounds" their television remote's IR put out...and play them back through their ipod, to turn their television on and off
18:52:43intgrTechnically, every USB mass storage device can be booted off of, but very few computers are capable of it.
18:53:04intgrHaha, remote controls don't even work with sound.
18:53:32spiorfPimpdaddypayne, i recorded the ir from the remote, but for playback i would need a ir led
18:53:35ender`i'm having a problem with certain HP server that's all to happy to boot off usb
18:54:01ender`plug usb pendrive/disk drive/mp3 player in, reboot, and it'll try to boot off it
18:54:12Pimpdaddypaynehe said he followed this tutorial and it worked
18:54:13spiorfmaybe plugging one in the headphone hole would work
18:54:27ender`and you can't prevent that at all, unless you completely disable USB
18:55:02intgrPimpdaddypayne: Ahh, it will work with a set of IR leds, yeah.
18:55:04spiorfPimpdaddypayne, in fact he has a ir led plugged in the headphone hole

21:26:29Hilikusyes, i do the same thing i did in my player, unzip the wps file in .rockbox so the structure is preserved and the bg image goes to the right directory, i cant remembet the name, backhead or something with back
21:27:32Hilikusis there a way to kind of debug wps?
21:28:00Domonokyi think the sim gives debug output for wps
21:28:29Domonokyi think there is a commandline switch to acivate it, forgot the name..
21:28:40Hilikusok, im going to look it up

21:29:38Hilikusnice, thanks
21:29:51DomonokyHilikus: at the beginning of the log ..
21:30:04Hilikuslast question, how do i build my sim for windows? i build it in linux and obviously it only works in linux
21:30:23Hilikusthanks Domonoky
21:30:45Domonokyyou have to crosscompile, with minggw ?
21:31:04Domonokyi dont know how to do it, but its possible :-)
21:31:25Hilikusnah its ok, ill use the sim in linux only, thats where i build rockbox anyway
21:31:36pixelmatucoz: yes I am
21:32:05tucozknow of a working pastebin?
21:32:30pixelmaI only know

21:34:17tucozpixelma, could you take a look at this:
21:34:58 Join FOAD [0] (
21:35:33pixelmawill take a look
21:37:10tucozThe first mention of e.g. files and database is just a brief mentioning of them. but i am not sure
21:37:53Hilikusoh wait! whats the differente between backdrops and background in a theme??
21:39:52pixelmatucoz: my first thought when reading the first idea is that subchapters (and their numbers) can get quit confusing - for example in the plugin section
21:41:21tucozi think i agree :)
21:41:47pixelmaHilikus: the backdrop is used for everything (menus, etc.). You can specify a background for your wps only with a wps-tag. This image must be stored in your wps's image folder
21:42:09Hilikusohhhh that i didnt know, i thought they were the same thing
21:42:29tucozmaybe just start a wikipage where we can work with a possible restructure and end up with something eventually
21:42:32Hilikusthat helps me troubleshooting my problem, thanks!

22:03:06Hilikushey, %xl according to the wiki is relative to .rockbox\ but all the wps ive found have the images in .rockbox\wps\<nameOfTheTheme> and the .wps files specify %xl with just a filename, which makes me believe that its looking for them in .rockbox, what is wrong with my logic??
22:04:37bluebrotherthe image tags loook in /.rockbox/wps/<nameofwps>
22:04:59webguest29hey , i got a terrible problem .... accidently reset the font colo and now i cannot see anything what should i do?
22:05:22Pimpdaddypaynei wonder if re-installing rockbox would fix that?
22:05:27Pimpdaddypayneunzipping the again
22:05:39Hilikus%xl|n|filename|x|y| −−-> filename = filename (relative to /.rockbox/ and including .bmp)
22:05:40GodEater_webguest29: which DAP ?
22:05:59Hilikusthats what the wiki says bluebrother, is it wrong?
22:06:13bluebrotherHilikus, no, that's the way it is intended to work
22:06:22webguest29Download accelerator plus?
22:06:28bluebrotherwebguest29, Digital Audio Player
22:06:44webguest29dunno wat that is
22:06:44Hilikusbut you say it looks in /.rockbox/wps not /.rockbox/
22:06:59webguest29its jsut the letters dissapear in the backgrond pic
22:07:03bluebrothersolution 1: remove /.rockbox/config.cfg in disk mode and reboot
22:07:20bluebrothersolution 2: reset the settings by pressing the apropriate button upon boot.
22:07:30bluebrotherthat button is dependend on the type of player

22:08:38webguest29as i remember there is a file that automatically updates to the newest rockbox version right?
22:08:43bluebrotherHilikus, that %xl line you gave looks for /.rockbox/wps/<wpsbasename>/filename
22:09:08bluebrotherwebguest29, how should rockbox be able updating itself without a net connection? Or what do you mean?

22:09:51bluebrotherHilikus, the wiki is a bit outdated −− the documentation effort concentrated on the manual recently
22:10:00bluebrotherwebguest29, how should this work?
22:10:23Hilikusok, i got it, i still think the wiki is wrong, if you tell me just a filename without a full path (file.bmp) and tell me its relative to c:\ i assume its looking for (full path) c:\file.bmp
22:10:37webguest29as i remmembered its something like a bat file then it opens in cmd
22:10:40Hilikusthanks a lot bluebrother
22:10:55bluebrotherwhat is the wiki page name? It might be wrong.

22:13:35webguest29how can i solve my font problem?
22:14:06Hilikusi thought i had figured out why a theme wasnt showing the images :(
22:14:35Hilikuswebguest29 i think someone answered you already
22:14:47bluebrotherHilikus, you could build the simulator and run it with the −−debugwps switch. That shows a lot debugging information about the wps
22:15:11webguest29solution 1: remove /.rockbox/config.cfg in disk mode and reboot and solution 2: reset the settings by pressing the apropriate button upon boot.

22:32:48webguest29how can i enter rockbox ithout rebootin the ipod
22:34:02bluebrotherthe Rockbox bootloader loads Rockbox. That's the default.
22:34:20bluebrotherand you can't change that order (except if you change it in the source code and recompiler yourself)
22:34:55EbErTif you can't use the middle button, thats no good
22:35:04EbErTcan't boot back to original firmware
22:35:30Hilikusoh man, you guys are very patient
22:35:33EbErTbrowse through the manual before you get confused tho, i had to
22:35:49bluebrotherthe current bootloader uses the hold key to load AppleOS
22:35:54ender`oh, is the rockbox project in need of any more build servers?
22:36:02webguest29ahhh crap ....
22:36:14webguest29so there isn't any other ption?
22:36:29bluebrotherthan what? Rockbox _is_ loaded as default.
22:36:46TrueJournalsender`: I'm pretty sure they could always use more build servers
22:36:56bluebrotherif you use a different bootloader than our official one don't ask, we only support our own bootloader
22:37:33webguest29umm ok ..... wat bootlader u r using?
22:37:46Hilikushey how can people help the project? i am a programmer and i would be willing to help
22:37:54bluebrotherno, the question is: what bootloader are _you_ using.
22:38:06bluebrotherwe support ONLY the official Rockbox bootloader.
22:38:12ender`i've got an E4400 in my fileserver, and i'm pretty sure the CPU is underused
22:38:15BagderHilikus: find a problem, fix it, post the patch!
22:38:22webguest29ok i amusing the ipl loader now but i can change it
22:38:44bluebrotherwe don't support the IPL bootloader. Use ours or ask the guys who wrote the IPL loader.
22:38:59bluebrotherHilikus, you could also help with the manual if you like to.
22:39:05webguest29any link where i can download it
22:39:06Hilikusso the patch system is how it work eh? i thought patches were only unofficial features like, i want rockbox to do my homework and stuff like that
22:39:28bluebrotherwebguest29, read the manual. It has the official way of installing Rockbox, and that includes the official files.
22:39:32BagderHilikus: the patch tracker is where non-committers submit their work
22:39:41Bagdergood or bad, big or small
22:40:01Hilikusi dont know, i took a course in techincal writing but english is not my first language :S
22:40:12Hilikusok i see
22:40:29webguest29if i wana update my rockbox then i gotta remove all the old files then there is 1 more thing i gotta do as i can remember
22:40:29bluebrotherHilikus, no, patches are the way to submit changes. Some create unofficial builds from that (including patches that won't get integrated into svn because of some reasons)
22:41:02bluebrotherHilikus, that's not an issue −− english isn't my mother tongue too, and I'm working on the manual since quite a while (but not much time recently)
22:42:01bluebrotherso if you find errors in the manual you could post patches against the manual sources too. Help is greatly appreciated ;-)
22:42:33*tucoz agrees with bluebrother

23:16:22webguest43can i write the program in C since rockbox is written in C?
23:16:35bluebrotherwhat do you mean by "the program"?
23:16:39webguest43for the mplayer
23:16:49bluebrotherwhat program for what mplayer?

23:17:16webguest43i'll try a few things on mine first and see if it works
23:17:26webguest43C will definitely work right?
23:17:30webguest43or C++
23:17:38bluebrotherthen you are reffering to the mpegplayer plugin. It's written in C, so you definitely will need C.
23:17:47webguest43ahh ok
23:17:55olle46536i have a problem with E10 and wonder if you could help
23:18:09TrueJournalsolle46536: Just ask a question...
23:18:12bluebrotherbut you might want to talk to jhMikeS about it.
23:18:21bluebrotherolle46536, E10? That's not supported by Rockbox.
23:18:29webguest43wats E10?
23:18:40 Quit himitsu (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))

23:20:01bluebrotherwebguest43, he is not writing "one", he is working on that plugin
23:20:02webguest43jmikeS is afk i guess
23:20:24olle46536hehe sry but my prob isnt about rockbox, its technical
23:20:28webguest43i'll try writing 1 to test
23:20:40TrueJournalsolle46536: Then I would say that this is not the place to ask
23:20:43olle46536i onnected my E10 to a 9 volts battery by mistake
23:20:44webguest43i'll test on mine first to make sure its sage

23:21:26webguest43whe u say working on it what other way can u work on it then writing 1?
23:21:33bluebrotherwebguest43, I really don't know what you are trying to do. Your wording is confusing.
23:21:43bluebrotherwhat the hell is "1"?
23:21:56TrueJournalsolle46536: Well, as I said... people try to keep the discussion on rockbox here... especially because the channel is logged and developers sometimes read the logs to see if anything interesting went on

23:30:51xxbarrxxis there a way to change the backround to a custom backround
23:31:06peturxxbarrxx: yes, rtfm
23:31:14TrueJournalsxxbarrxx: Yes, but you will need to have the background at the exact size of your player's screen and be in BMP format
23:31:53xxbarrxxi tried downloading the flamebox theme and changing the pic to a custom picture (same size,bmp everything) and it just went black
23:32:31peturxxbarrxx: maybe you saved as RLE?
23:32:35Root_Adminby the way , when i convert using WinFF the videos stil lag how can this be improved
23:32:49TrueJournalsRoot_Admin: What player are you using?
23:32:58bluebrotherby optimizing the mpeg player plugin

23:33:45bluebrotherwe have mpegplayer, not mplayer. mplayer is a video player for *nix
23:33:46peturrle is a compressed bmp
23:34:02markunand stands for run-length-encoding
23:34:20*petur was too lazy to type that
23:34:56Root_Adminyes mpegplayer , so gow can this be solved?
23:35:10TrueJournalsRoot_Admin: Will you answer my question? Which DAP are you using?
23:35:14bluebrotherby optimizing the mpeg player plugin
23:35:20xxbarrxx24 bit 256 color?
23:35:21Root_Adminwats DAP?
23:35:23xxbarrxxwhich ones
23:35:39TrueJournalsRoot_Admin: Digital Audio Player (ex: iPod 5G, iriver H10, ...)
23:35:40Root_Adminhow can i optimize it for my G5
23:35:51Root_Adminyea 5g
23:36:13peturxxbarrxx: 24bit should be ok I think
23:36:17Root_AdminDigital audio player? wats that for?
23:36:22buleeahnIpod 5g? Interesting.
23:36:26TrueJournalsRoot_Admin: The iPod 5G is horrible at playing videos under rockbox because the developers don't really know how to use the processor, and mpegplayer is very unoptimized.
23:36:53Root_Adminso the videos cannot be unlagged right?
23:37:12EbErTits horrible at scrolling, even in default software

23:37:38TrueJournalsRoot_Admin: They might be able to, but a lot of work needs to be done... If you want to watch videos on your iPod 5G, you're much better off just booting into the original firmware.
23:37:47buleeahnTrueJournals: When I last tried rockbox it seemed like ipod support was there, but the developers weren't quite sure about many things with the ipod. What you're saying makes it sound like that's the case....
23:37:48Root_Admini bet bluebrother is regretting for buying just ipod now
23:38:05buleeahnTrueJournals: So, how much as the rockbox matured for the ipod in the last 4-5 months?
23:38:06TrueJournalsIt's not the videos that are lagging, it's the player
23:38:06Root_Admin*his pod now*
23:38:18TrueJournalsbuleeahn: I don't really know, I don't have an iPod :-\
23:38:37Root_Adminhaha i ahve an ipod
23:38:39Root_Admints lags really really bad
23:38:40TrueJournalsPretty much all I know about rockbox, I've learned from just observing this channel
23:38:45buleeahnI do to. a 5G at that.
23:38:48xxbarrxx24bit is horrible there is absolutly no color
23:38:51xxbarrxxits xgarrrrbage
23:38:56EbErTthings work a lot better, blueeahn. battery is still a mystery tho
23:38:56Root_Adminyea i ahve a 5g too
23:39:00buleeahnTrueJournals: Obsessing, lol.
23:39:07xxbarrxxi went into paint and oppened it up
23:39:10xxbarrxxsaved it as a 256 color
23:39:11TrueJournalsWhatever you want to call it ;-)
23:39:13xxbarrxxor something like that
23:39:24peturxxbarrxx: can you put that bmp online somewhere?
23:39:34buleeahnEbErT: That was my big issue, battery life. I *LOVE* rockbox, it's just that the battery life was horrible on the initial versions of rockbox.
23:39:39xxbarrxxcan i give you the jpeg though
23:39:42Root_Adminthere is an option to tuen on the ram does it actually do anything?
23:40:00bluebrotherwhy should I regret buying an ipod?
23:40:04TrueJournalsRoot_Admin: rockbox is using the RAM I believe...
23:40:20peturxxbarrxx: that won't help, the whole point is to see if you're making the correct type of bmp
23:40:26TrueJournalsWell, unfortunately, I have to go... see ya
23:40:28peturand make it 24bit
23:40:29 Part TrueJournals
23:40:43*bluebrother doesn't regret buying an ipod at all
23:40:51Root_Adminbut i can turn it off lol ... strange option even though its forced to be turned on
23:41:00*markun doesn't regret buying a Gigabeat at all
23:41:08Root_Adminbluebrother i was joking lol
23:41:19*bluebrother would buy a gigabeat if he had the money
23:41:27*petur doesn't regret buying an h340 and making an h380 of it
23:41:33bluebrotherstill, I like the h120 best.
23:41:39Root_Adminwhich is more expensive? an ipod 5g or gigabeat?
23:41:40xxbarrxxhere is the file

23:42:41buleeahnEbErT: I put rockbox on my ipod a long time ago. I tried ipodlinux and discovered rockbox too. I totally loved the way the interface was customizable but even more I love the CONTINUOUS mp3 playing from one track to another.
23:42:58xxbarrxxim sure someone could do it quick and then upload the new one back into the rapidshar
23:43:28markunRoot_Admin: a Gigabeat F40 can be found for around $100 on ebay
23:43:39Root_Adminhey the battery life of my ipod is draining so fast is it the ipl or the rockbox?
23:43:44buleeahnEbErT: I have a lot of albums that are continuous so this is a huge deal for me. I put rockbox on my ipod shortly after rockbox supported the ipod when it hadn't been optimized for the ipod much. The battery did not last long at all under rockbox, so I couldn't use it.
23:43:45markunI don't know what an ipod 5g costs
23:43:59Root_Admin$399 prolly
23:44:11EbErTi'd try it again, its a LOT better now, depending on some things
23:44:14markunbut then you have the 60GB version?
23:44:34markunRoot_Admin: both ipl and rockbox drain the battery pretty hard if you use an ipod
23:44:45Root_Adminaccessories i bought isn't worth the squeez after buting the inear headphones
23:44:48buleeahnEbErT: A LOT? That's good news. I'm here to find out how much it's matured for the ipod. What things does it depend on?
23:44:54peturxxbarrxx: what player do you have?
23:45:02 Part xxbarrxx
23:45:10Root_AdminWHAT???????????? the battery drain is so hard it finishes in 2 hours
23:45:32Root_Adminmarkun: yes i ahve the 60gb version
23:45:34EbErTi was talking about battery life. just give it a try!
23:45:38scorcheRoot_Admin: please...the caps and overstated comments are not necessary
23:45:52buleeahnEbErT: Cool, I certainly will, thanks for the news.
23:45:54EbErTall you have to do is run the bootloader real quick, and update the .rockbox folder as needed
23:45:59Root_Adminscorche: ok fine =P
23:46:10buleeahnYeah, I think I've still got the old rockbox on my ipod in hopes that it would mature.
23:46:28buleeahnRockbox, if I recall correctly, reads the apple mp3 database, right?
23:46:37BHSPitMonkeyno, it builds its own.
23:46:39Root_Adminis there anyway to reduce the drainage of myipod's battery drainage
23:47:00EbErTit can read what you've put in via itunes, then builds its own database
23:47:07EbErTwhich has many more options
23:47:09buleeahnAh, that's what I thought.
23:47:21BHSPitMonkeywhy would it limit you to wav, mp3, and aac
23:47:23buleeahnI use the itunes database with a Linux app, so I like the itunes database for that.
23:47:40Root_Adminlol duping in itunes i know that and yes continuous music for a day whereas in rockbox its like 5 hours
23:47:58buleeahnRoot_Admin: Are you talking about music playing battery life, or video playing battery life?
23:48:11Root_Adminmusic dor ipod
23:48:21scorcheon the 5th gens, rockbox seems to consume the battery in around half the time
23:48:37Root_Adminu mean 1/4th
23:48:45scorcheno i mean 1/2th
23:49:07Root_Adminwhen i say 1 day its like 20 hours but rockbox its like 5 hours
23:49:19scorcheand you have timed this?
23:49:21Root_Adminso 3/4 faster than normal
