00:03:25nlsmpeccorini, markun: hahah, adding __attribute__((__packed__)) to the mp3entry struct makes binsize increase 16KB for h300 :-)
00:03:32webguest07hi i have a question. is there a way to install a theme that i already downloaded with the rockbox utility?
00:03:40BRi7Xalright, after an hour of paypal sucking, my new gigabeat and zcover for said gigabeat are ordered!
00:04:07mpeccorinin1s: while it may seem obvious, I forgot to point out that pointers ( *something ) should be considered to have the size of the pointer only while arrays ( something[n] ) should be considered to have "n" times the size of the the array's type
00:05:25nlsmpeccorini: I don't follow...
00:06:20mpeccoriniif you have struct mystruct { int *int_pointer } the size is only the size of the pointer to the position in memory, not the size of the integer itself
00:06:34BRi7Xi figured since i gave the ipod 3 chances, that's how many i'll give the gigabeat... actually, i'll give it one more chance, this is the last one. since the first one broke so quickly
00:06:52 Quit petur ("here today, gone tomorrow")
00:06:59mpeccoriniwhile, if you have struct mystruct { int my_array[10] } the size is ten times the size of int
00:07:19nlsmpeccorini: yeah, and the size of all pointers are the same, right? (for the same cpu)

00:08:14LycoLocohey guys, I've got a Gigabeat F40 and while I can get bookmarks to work with shorter files, such as music and whatnot, I can't seem to get them to work on longer files, such as podcasts. Since this podcasts are really the only place I use bookmarks, anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
00:08:15 Quit spiorf_ (Remote closed the connection)
00:08:31mpeccorinin1s: just checking, did you apply the __attribute__((packed)) to the struct or to the members? it has to be to the struct
00:08:35webguest07can someone please help me? i really want to know if i can i already tried it. please?
00:08:37LycoLocoWhen I say they don't work, I mean that when I try to make a bookmark by pressing right ont the pad, nothing happens
00:09:19nlsmpeccorini: I did it with the struct, size increased 16KB :-)
00:09:29Dorian_jw, but are current builds the same as nightly builds?
00:09:46mpeccoriniI don't understand why can it increase
00:10:50nlsDorian_: current builds are built on every source change, nightlies (or as we call them archived builds) are built at a fixed time every night, so the difference should be minimal
00:11:01nlsmpeccorini: well, gcc is strange :-)

00:13:57webguest07but the themes that i already downloaded?
00:14:08webguest07not the ones on the utility
00:14:16linuxstb_Installing a theme is just copying the files to your ipod.
00:14:36webguest07how do i install theme?
00:14:46 Quit Nico_P (Remote closed the connection)
00:14:48linuxstb_The theme should be in a zip file which contains the correct folders - just extract that zip file to your ipod.
00:14:54webguest07because when i do that manually they never work?
00:15:20mpeccoriniif you did it the way linux told you, you may be missing some fonts
00:15:33webguest07can i make the utility do that for me?
00:15:40mpeccorinithat can make the theme fail to load
00:15:45webguest07can it install them for me?
00:15:48linuxstb_webguest07: It may not be your fault - some themes require unofficial versions of Rockbox, and some theme WPS files are broken.
00:16:32linuxstb_Do any themes you've installed yourself work?
00:16:38webguest07 (thats where i found the themes i want)
00:16:56webguest07no none of those themes work.
00:17:03webguest07so i deleted them
00:17:22mpeccorinilinuxstb: I need to make chessbox leave the backlight on while thinking (if the users chooses so). How do I do that?
00:18:00LycoLocoanyone have any idea why I cant use bookmarks on long files such as hour long podcasts?
00:18:04linuxstb_mpeccorini: Lots of other plugins do that - look at mpegplayer/mpegplayer.c for an example.
00:18:14mpeccoriniok, thanks
00:18:42mpeccorinilinuxstb: I posted the new version of the feature to save PGN history by the way
00:18:52mpeccoriniin case you have some time to look at it
00:19:07mpeccoriniI used the same task, is that ok?
00:19:08amiconn__attribute__((packed)) will of course increase binary size a lot on SH and arm, because short and long members can become unaligned
00:19:35linuxstb_LycoLoco: Are you using the file broswer or database to access them?
00:19:36mpeccoriniamiconn: isn't ((packed)) supposed to "align" them?

00:19:47webguest45sorry i logged out by accident.
00:19:48LycoLocolinuxstb - file browser
00:19:53nlsamiconn: the 16KB increase was for coldfire, though
00:19:56 Quit davina_ (Remote closed the connection)
00:20:13webguest45are those themes even for the ipod video?
00:20:14linuxstb_LycoLoco: Then I don't know...
00:20:15amiconn'packed' packs the struct so that there are no gaps at all, regardless of member data sizes
00:20:17nlsamiconn: also did you look at the patch?
00:20:41LycoLocolinuxstb: would it matter about using database vs file browser?
00:20:43linuxstb_webguest45: No - they're for the iaudio X5...
00:21:01amiconnIt's meant to be used for reading well defined data formats, but even then coders often prefer to do the parsing 'by hand'
00:22:22webguest45i have two more questions. i have some gameboy roms on my ipod but when i play them the sound or music whatever is kind of dissorted do you know why?
00:22:46amiconngcc doesn't reorder struct members. For packed structs it must not do that, for non-packed structs it would be useful...
00:23:01linuxstb_webguest45: Because no-one is developing Rockboy and it still has bugs/limitations.
00:23:16webguest45the other question is the mpeg player plays the movie but the sound is slower thsan the movie?
00:23:35markunwebguest45: what's the samplerate of the audio?
00:23:49webguest45what do you mean?
00:23:55nlsamiconn: re: what you said about gcc yesterday, there seems that quite a few improvements have made it into gcc 4.3
00:24:43markunwebguest45: well, normally it should be 44100Hz so I can imagine the audio being slower if you use a file with a samplerate of 48000Hz
00:24:46linuxstb_webguest45: mpegplayer isn't very fast on the ipod video - you are better off playing videos in Apple's firmware.
00:25:11webguest45ok thanks anyway. : )
00:25:26amiconnIt can be done manually, grouping members by size, but that means giving up grouping related members together -> readability suffers
00:25:30markunwebguest45: did you try one of the "Elefants Dream" sample movies?
00:26:02webguest45i would also like to know how you guys made rockbox make my ipod albe to play gameboy roms?
00:26:05markunElephants even
00:26:20webguest45yeah i trie dthat elephants dream movie.
00:27:23webguest45did i ask that other question the right way?

02:19:42DanielWi just wanted to play that one selected song
02:21:00linuxstbThat's how Rockbox works - if you press select or right on a track in a list, it creates a playlist with the whole list.

07:03:12kayashaquick question

07:03:43rotatornope, no n64 either
07:03:47kayashai got a Iriver h10 5gb, i installed the nnew build and im having Codec fail
07:03:53rotatortake a look at for pacman
07:04:32kayashai need new bootloader right?
07:05:08Matt544So how do install files that end in .gb?
07:05:43rotatorMatt544: just copy them to your player and the play them like you would an audio file
07:07:00kayashaanyone care to help me ?
07:07:15Lloreankayasha: Yes, you need a new bootloader. Just follow the directions in the manual
07:07:22Matt544Copy them into what folder

07:18:38LloreanYou need that file there for it to work with the current bootloader.

07:21:35kayashaok yes there is one
07:21:43LloreanAnd the error -1 is happening even after that?
07:22:00kayashaand yep
07:22:21LloreanYep you still get it?
07:22:38LloreanDid you actually reinstall the bootloader?
07:22:46LloreanExactly what the manual says to do for installing the bootloader?
07:24:07kayasha if your player is UMS or
07:24:07kayasha˙5GB-MTP/H10.mi4 if it is MTP.

07:24:07kayashaConnect your H10 to the computer using UMS mode and the UMS trick if necessary.

07:25:17 Quit rotator ()
07:25:19LloreanI didn't ask you to copy and paste the directions.
07:25:22LloreanI asked you, did you do them?
07:25:36LloreanWhat version number does your bootloader report?
07:26:11kayasha20061219-151 then it cut off
07:26:15LloreanThat's not it, then
07:26:27LloreanThe current one starts with 2007
07:26:34kayashaok wait
07:26:45LloreanYou missed a step
07:26:53LloreanOr copied over the wrong file
07:29:20kayashai just redownloaded the build
07:29:29kayashaand copying them
07:29:36LloreanNot the build
07:29:37LloreanThe bootloader
07:29:49kayashai got the one from the link in the manula
07:30:16LloreanThe bootloader and the build are two different things
07:30:23kayashai know that
07:30:32LloreanThen why did you redownload the build?
07:30:38LloreanThe bootloader is out of date, and that's your problem
07:30:38kayashajust to make sure
07:30:47kayashawher edo i get the up to date one
07:30:53LloreanThe link you pasted above
07:31:02LloreanThe files there are dated March '07
07:31:02kayashathat is the one i downloaded lol
07:31:22LloreanIf you definitely downloaded the march '07 one, you didn't copy it to your player properly
07:31:29LloreanBut somewhere along the line, you didn't get the mar '07 file in the right place
07:32:44kayashai need to remain
07:32:56kayashato OF.mi4 right
07:33:09LloreanYou rename the OLD h10.mi4 to it
07:33:29kayashai don't have old
07:33:34kayashathat is my problem
07:33:44LloreanThe old one is the one on the player
07:33:51LloreanYou rename the one on the player, then you copy the new one to it
07:33:54LloreanExactly like the manual says
07:34:07LloreanIt says *very* clearly that you rename the one in the system folder before the step where it says to copy the downloaded one over.
07:34:15kayashai only have one in the root file
07:34:26LloreanThen you didn't install properly the first time
07:34:35LloreanYou won't be able to boot into the iRiver firmware without the OF.mi4
07:34:36kayashait was working before lol
07:34:45LloreanWas the original iRiver firmware dual boot working?
07:34:59LloreanBecause that's ALL the OF.mi4 is for
07:35:04LloreanSo, see, you didn't install properly before.
07:35:29LloreanNow, you need to copy the downloaded bootloader MI4 file into the system folder on your device. Don't rename that one to OF.MI4
07:35:54LloreanYou should have a file with the same name to overwrite with it.
07:37:01kayashai need a rockbox.h10 file
07:37:08LloreanNo, you don't
07:37:19kayashaim confused like hell
07:37:36LloreanFollow the instructions in the manual, exactly as they're written, but ignore the step about making an OF.MI4
07:37:49LloreanWhy do you think you need a rockbox.h10 file?
07:37:57LloreanI told you earlier you don't need it, and the manual doesn't need it.
07:37:59kayashabecause i had that before
07:38:10LloreanYOU DO NOT NEED IT NOW
07:38:11LloreanIt's OLD
07:38:16LloreanPlease believe me.
07:38:18LloreanI'm not lying to you.
07:38:20LloreanI didn't lie to you before.
07:38:31kayashaim not saying your lying :P
07:38:48LloreanWell you said you need it, suggesting rather strongly you don't believe me.
07:38:58kayashacan i just format and restart
07:39:11LloreanFollow the instructions in the manual, exactly as they're written, but ignore the step about making an OF.MI4
07:39:17LloreanIf you just do that, exactly, you'll be fine
07:39:24LloreanYou still won't be able to dual boot, but it should work fine other than that
07:40:11kayashaok i did that
07:40:19kayashadidn't remain and didn't wor
07:40:38LloreanDid you overwrite a file with it?
07:40:57kayashaya ......
07:41:03LloreanAnd what version does it say now when you boot?
07:41:11kayashaas hell
07:41:12LloreanWhat's the date on the file?
07:41:31LloreanHow many MI4 files do you have in the /system folder, and what are they named?
07:42:09 Join secleinteer [0] (
07:42:14LloreanAh, right
07:42:20LloreanWhat's the size of it?
07:42:48LloreanAnd that's the file you just downloaded today?
07:42:55kayashajust 5 min ago
07:43:01LloreanAnd it's giving "Error: -1"
07:43:21kayashaim using a usm mode
07:44:16kayashabefore it was working but had codec fail, and now ot working at all
07:44:22LloreanAnd did you remove the battery?
07:44:33kayasharemove ya why
07:44:49LloreanTo force a full restart?
07:45:02kayashano to connect in um mode
07:45:32LloreanAnd yours is an MTP, UMS, or Pure?
07:45:47kayashaMTP and UMS
07:45:56kayashaUMS is a trick to boot it in
07:46:08kayashamaybe if i use bootloader from MTP
07:46:21LloreanThere are ones that are UMS only
07:46:29LloreanIf yours CAN boot into MTP at all, it's an MTP player
07:46:34LloreanAnd you must use the MTP bootloader
07:46:49LloreanYou still need to be in UMS mode to copy it over.
07:47:14kayashaerror -1
07:47:26LloreanDid the date change?
07:47:37LloreanDoes yours have a radio?
07:47:38kayashai didn't rename
07:47:58LloreanWell something weird is happening.
07:48:15kayashait was working before i deleted rockbox.h10
07:48:24LloreanIt wasn't working
07:48:28LloreanYou were getting codec failures
07:48:34LloreanBecause the .h10 file was outdated, and the codecs were from the new build
07:48:38Lloreanyou would never be able to fix that
07:48:43kayashaiok ok \
07:48:46LloreanBecause the bootloader needs to load the rockbox.mi4 file now
07:48:50LloreanWhich means you need to update your bootloader
07:49:00kayashaok how do i update it /
07:49:07LloreanApparently you can't
07:49:14LloreanBecause you're telling me you're doing things exactly right, but it's not working
07:49:27kayashamaybe the build i got is wrong?
07:49:33LloreanIt's not the build
07:49:35LloreanIt's the bootloader
07:49:39LloreanYou need to update the bootloader
07:49:40kayashaya ok
07:50:02LloreanAs you can clearly see by visiting the site, the bootloader file was uploaded in March 20, '07
07:50:12LloreanYours is reporting it was made in 2006
07:50:15LloreanIt's definitely outdated
07:50:22LloreanThe question is why your player isn't updating to the new one.
07:50:44kayashamaybe because is the renaming part?
07:50:52LloreanWhat renaming part?
07:50:56kayashato of
07:51:02LloreanOF means "original firmware"
07:51:04LloreanIt's for the dual boot
07:51:17LloreanThe of.mi4 doesn't get loaded until *after* the Rockbox bootloader loads, and you hold down a button.
07:51:26kayashai never did thata
07:51:33kayashaso ok
07:51:45LloreanIf you read the manual carefully, the renaming is for the OLD file, the original .mi4, not the one you download
07:52:29kayashaif i format my iriver, i clear it, after i install the latest build + bootloader
07:52:49LloreanReformatting shouldn't make any difference.

08:39:00kayashai formated my iriver
08:39:11kayashaand installed the latest version
08:39:30kayashabut it doesn't load and goes in normal iriver firmware
08:40:38peturI know very little about the iriver h10... I'll have to read the install instructions myself so I can't tell you more than what's in them
08:41:00kayashaoh thanks anyways
08:41:28kayashai'll probably stick with the normal iriver firmware then for now
08:41:50peturdid you check all steps carefully?

08:43:00CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood

08:51:42kayashanot in root
08:51:54kayashai tried renaming and i got a error message
08:52:07peturit has to be in the system dir
08:52:28kayashasaying i lost all data need to get firmware to recover
08:52:31kayashaok ya it's there
08:52:33peturthat's probably your mistake, you're trying to put stuff in the root
08:53:00kayashawhere do i put bootloader?
08:53:03kayashathe new one
08:53:08kayashain system ? or root?
08:54:01peturthe install guide says you have to rename H10.mi4 to OF.mi4 INSIDE the SYSTEM dir, and then copy the correct H10.mi4 from rockbox inside that system dir
08:54:22kayashayour a genius
08:54:24peturthere were two links for that bootloader
08:54:40kayashai only needed to put the new bootloader in system not root
08:54:57peturI'm not a genius, but I can read install instructions :p
08:55:27kayashathe instruction doessn't point out that you put new bootloader in system dir
08:55:37petur <−−- that one does
08:55:41peturit's in the manual
08:55:52petur"Copy the H10.mi4 (or H10EMP.mi4 if you have a H10 Pure) file you downloaded to the System directory on your player.
08:56:10peturit's all there, just have to read it correctly
08:56:14kayashaohh oops
08:56:21kayashai though that was for pure h10
08:56:24kayashathat is why

10:16:13pengoi don't think the speed change would take much more cpu for an mp3, because the mp3 already is stored as frequencies.. so it's just reading/processing it faster that would hurt.. but wavs and flacs might be more limiting if you have to do a FFT on it first.. (i'm guessing here)
10:17:37peturif it's done in rockbox, it will probably be done for all formats, not just mp3
10:18:26pengowell i hope it gets done soon.

12:14:08caxHi, guys. Can you please tell me: (1) what's the default CPU speed in e200 (2) can it be boosted, and if yes - what's the boosted freq (3) does latest change "e200: Use clocking set up by loader and skip setting the values for now" mean there is no boosting anymore ? (4) why do I get "Undefined instruction" with the newest build ?
12:17:48amiconnlinuxstb: Not close to realtime
12:18:30linuxstbamiconn: OK... Is the greyscale blitting very CPU intensive?
12:18:31amiconnIiuc the problem is that audio runs on core0, and the grayscale lib also runs on core0, drawing a significant amount of performance

12:19:04amiconnThe problem is that we don't know how to control the pp->lcd controller interface in an efficient way
12:19:06 Join neutralrobotboy [0] (
12:19:42amiconnOn H1x0 there is no such problem, and the grayscale library needs <10% of the total cpu time
12:20:01linuxstbSo much less than the lcd_yuv_blit I would expect.
12:20:30neutralrobotboyhey, can anyone in here tell me if it's possible to have different default directories for different rockbox versions? i have 2 versions of rockbox on my iriver h320, and i would like them to read from different plugin directories. is this possible?
12:21:25linuxstbneutralrobotboy: When you compile Rockbox, you can change the name of the .rockbox folder - so you need to compile one of them with something different. (I forget where it's defined, just search the source).
12:21:25amiconnThe grayscale library needs cpu power for 2 different things: (1) converting the 8 bit greyscale source image into bitplanes. (2) constantly pushing the bitplanes to the lcd
12:21:42amiconnCPU usage for (1) is dynamic - no change, no cpu usage
12:22:09amiconnBut CPU usage for (2) is fixed, only depending on the lcd area covered by the grayscale overlay
12:22:27linuxstbIf we want mpegplayer to run dual-core greyscale targets, I think we would need to move the tick task to the second core.
12:22:37amiconnI didn't measure (1) in comparison to lcd_yuv_blit() on a colour target
12:23:01amiconnHigh load from (1) only reduces mpeg frame rate, but high load from (2) is bad
12:23:34amiconnI think the pp->lcd interface can be handled a lot faster than what we do now - if we find out how...
12:25:36 Join Lear [0] (i=chatzill@rockbox/developer/lear)
12:28:48amiconnIn the mini G2, the interface between PP and lcd controller itself is serial (deduced from the sequence used to transfer data, and the lcd controller datasheet), and this serial interface is fed from a shift register in the pp, so the cpu just writes parallel data (16 bit at a time)
12:29:21amiconnRight now, were' sending the init sequence, then one 16 bit word, then wait until done, and repeat
12:30:08amiconnBut it should be possible to send many 16 bit words after the init sequence - if we find out how to tell the pp shift register logic how many words we want to send

12:41:25linuxstbcax: Checking the SVN logs, boosting on the Sansa was disabled about 5 weeks ago ("it caused problems"). The frequencies were 30MHz/75MHz, so now I would expect it to run at a constant 75MHz.

12:47:56linuxstbamiconn: I think that will cause caching problems - the audio "DMA" function (FIQ handler) runs on the main cpu.
12:48:49linuxstbI chose to put the video thread on the COP as it is completely self-contained, so it's easier to make sure the cache isn't a problem.
12:50:06linuxstbAlthough there is a large ringbuffer for audio output, so it might work - i.e. the fiq handler will always be reading from an old part of the buffer, and the cache should have been flushed by then. But it doesn't feel safe....
12:51:31amiconnWhat would be required to put an isr on the cop?
12:51:57amiconnBtw, the grayscale lib doesn't use a tick task, it uses the user timer

12:56:41 Quit desowin ("use linux")
12:58:03amiconnBtw, the grayscale lib might also run into caching problems when putting the isr on the cop, because the calculations are still done on the cpu
12:58:21amiconnBut if it works, all plugins that use it would benefit, not only mpegplayer
12:58:28linuxstbIt may just mean changing line 267 of timer.c to read COP_INT_EN instead of CPU_INT_EN
12:58:57linuxstb(and same in timer_unregister)
12:59:34linuxstbIf you try it, you should move the greyscale init into the video thread function in mpegplayer.c - so the lib is initialsed from the COP as well.

14:03:02stripwaxDanielW : hm, what happens if you leave it in the original firmware and reconnect it to your pc, does it get up to full charge then? (i.e. is it a problem with rockbox, or maybe is your ipod battery just faulty?)
14:03:07DanielWjust one question: this flashing between green and gray in original firmware while charging is normal?
14:03:17stripwaxalso try running the ipod down to completely flat (won't turn on) and then charging fully
14:03:24stripwaxDanielW : - yes
14:03:45 Quit BigMac_ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
14:03:54DanielWah, i thought something with my usb is wrong (the manual says i need a "high power usb connector"
14:04:00kramdraanyone know if the gigabeat remote works with rockbox?
14:05:27stripwaxDanielW : - well that too. if your usb port isn't providing enough power to charge your ipod, then it won't charge .. so you've never used your ipod before putting rockbox on it?
14:05:34DanielWstripwax: one question last. the ipod manual has a charing screenshot where a big battery is in the middle of the screen. how do i get that?
14:06:19DanielWstripwax: not really. it is 3 days old, thats why i am asking that stupid questions.
14:06:53stripwaxDanielW : - you boot into the apple os and connect the ipod to a dedicated battery charger, i think
14:07:29stripwaxit might do it for usb charging too, if you have itunes set up to "not use disk mode" (so that plugging the usb in will leave it still running the apple os)
14:07:31Amarok_Rulesdoes anyone know how to run ipodpatcher in ubuntu linux?
14:07:41DanielWok, dedicated batter charger brings big charging screen. connecting to pc brings "do not disconnect screen" ?
14:08:00 Quit badsheepy (Remote closed the connection)
14:08:10stripwaxyeah probably. i mean, the charging screen doesn't matter, right? it's just a picture ..
14:08:28DanielWwhile that is funny, there is no way to leave that do not disconnect screen without disconnecting ;-)
14:08:33markunkramdra: it does
14:08:45stripwaxconnecting to pc if you use the apple os on your ipod probably brings up the big charging screen too
14:08:46markundoesn't it work for you?
14:08:56linuxstbAmarok_Rules: Have you read the installation chapter in the manual? That describes how to use ipodpatcher.
14:09:14DanielWstripwax: not here, always "do not disconnect"
14:09:17stripwaxDanielW- yes, you right click the icon on windows to Unplug Hardware, and then the ipod tells you it is safe to disconnect
14:09:33DanielWstripwax: using linux and the ipod is not mounted
14:09:35stripwaxDanielW - like I said, "if you have itunes set up to not use disk mode". Anyway, none of this matters
14:09:40stripwaxOh, you're using linux.
14:09:47stripwaxWell, who knows then

14:10:06stripwaxProbably better to ask in a linux or ipod forum then, not a rockbox forum ;-p
14:10:35DanielWi think this is a bug in the original apple firmware. even if the harddisk is not mounted it says not to disconnect
14:10:41DanielWstripwax: or a linux one
14:10:54SlasheriDanielW: if you "eject /dev/xxx" then "do not disconnect" disappears
14:11:32DanielWSlasheri: so who does the inject ?
14:11:36 Join badsheepy [0] (
14:12:09Slasherihmm, it's done automatically when you connect the device
14:12:26Slasherisame than in windows too
14:12:49Slasheriand eject does the same as the "unplug hardware" in windows
14:13:54bluebrotherthat "do not eject" is for windows users who forget to safely remove their hardware
14:13:55DanielWgood to know. but i thought unmounting a device would be ok. eject is normaly to remove the media (for example by a cd rom drive open it)
14:14:09bluebrotheras on windows this can cause data corruption. It's the same like unmounting on linux
14:14:29bluebrotherand the ipod will always go into disk mode when connected to a usb port
14:14:38SlasheriDanielW: eject does both. Unmounts and then "removes the media"
14:14:52Slasherihowever, just unmounting is enough as well
14:14:57bluebrotherDanielW: if the Ipod is unmounted you can ignore that "do not connecte"
14:15:09Slasheribut ejecting spins down hard disk in disk mode and is better for charging
14:15:17DanielWok, then one real rockbox question here
14:15:30DanielWipod is off, hold is on
14:15:41DanielWthe hold switch is switched to hold
14:15:50DanielWthen i connect it to usb. rockbox boots
14:16:06DanielWbut the problem
14:16:20DanielWit gives me a "cleared" messages and all settings and the database are lost
14:16:20*stripwax waits
14:16:30DanielWis this the way it should happen?
14:16:40stripwaxDanielw - that's what booting rockbox with the hold switch on does. it's probably even mentioned in the manual
14:16:40Slasherihold is used to reset settings if the does not boot
14:16:58stripwaxalthough turning on with hold set to hold should boot the apple firmware. doesn't yours do that?
14:17:04Slasheribut afaik, database should not be removed
14:17:07bluebrotherhmm. Just tried that, it boots into AppleOS (as expected)
14:17:29stripwaxDanielW : - are you using an old bootloader?
14:17:51DanielWstripwax: ok you are right it boots in original firmware. but i tryied to set hold and then fastly remove it to boot in diskmode in apple firmware
14:18:03DanielWbut it went into rockbox lol
14:18:12DanielWno, it must happen in an other way
14:18:23Slasherithat is the intended behaviour then
14:18:37DanielWbut i deleted my settings 2 times that way now
14:18:40bluebrotherthen you enabled hold soo late
14:18:40stripwaxDanielW - if you want to boot into apple diskmode you can hold menu+select until it reboots, then hold play+select
14:18:55bluebrothergo to "browse cfg files" and open "config.cfg"
14:18:56stripwaxor just leave hold turned to hold and plug in the usb cable
14:19:15stripwaxor just leave hold turned off and plug in the usb cable, rockbox will reboot into disk mode anyway
14:19:22DanielWstripwax: just play+select without the hold switch?
14:19:33 Join raphi [0] (i=52887b80@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
14:19:35bluebrotherthere are two times to enable hold: 1. while the bootloader runs. In that case the bootloader will run AppleOS
14:19:57bluebrother2. while Rockbox starts up, after the bootloader. When enabling hold at that time the settings are reset to the defaults
14:20:17stripwaxDanielW - if the hold switch is on, all of the keys are ignored, right? You have to turn hold off if you want to press the keys
14:20:29stripwaxor - just plug it in - and leave the hold switch alone
14:20:37DanielWthat doesn't work
14:20:38stripwaxin fact, just always leave the hold switch alone :-)
14:20:43stripwax"what" doesn't work
14:20:55DanielWjust connect it with usb to get into diskmode
14:21:04stripwaxwhy not
14:21:14bluebrotherenable hold first. It will boot AppleOS, and that will go to disk mode
14:21:41DanielWyes original firmeware goes into diskmode when connecting with usb
14:21:53stripwaxbluebrother : - I think DanielW is saying that when he plugs it in to his pc while running rockbox, it doesn't go into diskmode..
14:21:55bluebrotherwell, Rockbox is different :p
14:22:05DanielWstripwax: yes
14:22:16stripwaxbluebrother : - are you sure? Has this changed recently?
14:22:16bluebrotherah. That makes things different ...
14:22:41stripwaxDanielW : - so, what happens, when you're running rockbox and plug it into your pc
14:22:44bluebrotherstripwax: not that I know of. If hold is enabled during boot the bootloader will go to AppleOS.
14:22:47stripwaxanything? nothing? does it try and charge
14:23:00DanielWwhat is the way to directly boot into apple diskmode? i mean the original bootloader can do that, and rockbox does start the original firmware when i use the hold switch
14:23:03stripwaxbluebrother - we're talking about after it's already booted, I thought
14:23:22*bluebrother confused
14:23:31stripwaxDanielW- exactly how I already said. 1. reboot using select+menu - 2. hold select+play
14:23:45*stripwax too
14:24:06stripwaxbut why would you want to boot into apple diskmode? and what makes you think rockbox doesn't work properly
14:24:12DanielWstripwax: i think it is charging, but charging in a way to not fill that think (but that need to be tested, i am new to the ipod, don't know charging times)
14:24:30stripwaxwhat has disk mode got to do with charging though?
14:24:34DanielWstripwax: ok step 1. is clear
14:24:41 Join miepchen^schlaf [0] (
14:24:41stripwaxdo you want to boot your ipod into diskmode? or do you just want to charge your ipod?
14:24:51DanielWbut 2. the hold think not
14:24:57stripwaxthe hold think not?
14:25:16DanielWshould i hold the seclect+play buttons or should i use hold + select + play?
14:25:33stripwaxwhen the ipod reboots (screen goes black, you get a little apple logo in the middle), take your finger off Menu and press and hold the Play button instead.
14:25:44stripwaxNot the HOLD BUTTON, "hold" the play button down ......
14:26:04DanielWwhy would that boot diskmode
14:26:17stripwaxso select+menu , then as soon as screen goes black, select+play
14:26:24stripwaxDanielW : - what? why? because it does! Ask Apple
14:26:38DanielWbut the first bootloader is starts is the rockbox one right?
14:26:46stripwaxI still don't see what diskmode has got to do with your charging problem though
14:26:50DanielWand the rockbox one should not know anything about select+play for diskmode or?
14:26:51stripwaxDanielW- "wrong"
14:27:13stripwax#the first thing the ipod does is run the apple firmware, which then loads either the rockbox bootloader, or the ipod bootloader, or launches diskmode
14:27:59stripwaxapple firmware is the one that knows about select+play
14:28:18stripwaxtry it. ses that it works.
14:28:55stripwaxSo anyway, tell me, what does diskmode have to do with charging your batteries? Did you try plugging your ipod into a powered usb hub or a 500ma usb port?
14:29:11DanielWyeah, a black and grey diskmode :-)
14:29:16DanielWnever seen that
14:30:02stripwaxDanielW - does it help you? why did you want to boot into diskmode
14:30:19DanielWi think it s nothing to do with charging. i think that charging in rockbox doesn't work as good. or it stops when it is full (that is great) but then it does use the battery again until it is at 40% again
14:30:28DanielWdiskmode just to fill it with musik
14:30:44stripwaxDanielW : - just plug your ipod in to your pc! It will go into diskmode automatically!!
14:30:59DanielWnot with rockbox
14:31:26stripwaxDanielW- mine does. are you using an official rockbox build, or one of the unofficial, unsupported 'patched' builds?
14:31:49stripwaxsome of the patched builds require you to hold down the MENU key when pluggin in usb to get it to connect for diskmode
14:31:59DanielWoh, sorry, i think that could be the problem. :-/
14:32:03stripwaxG A H
14:32:03bluebrotherstripwax: seems he experiences the reboot hang :(
14:32:31bluebrotherbut I have heard of that hang only on the mini yet.
14:32:47stripwaxso, DanielW - if you're using an unsupported build, please make that very clear right at the start, otherwise we end up wasting time like this.
14:32:58stripwaxbluebrother : - er, what?
14:33:16bluebrotherah. Just read the thing about the unsupported build ...
14:33:19stripwaxand unsupported means - ask the author of that build for support
14:33:37bluebrotheron the mini there is a problem: it sometimes crashes when rebooting to disc mode.

14:50:42DanielWlack of cpu power mhh, i seems to play everything fine here
14:50:57bluebrotherin other words, it's mostly not features but performance.
14:51:09linuxstbTry a high bitrate MP3 at the same time as using the software DSP effects (eq, crossfeed etc)
14:51:23bluebrotherlinuxstb: beat me ;-)
14:51:38DanielWah ok, do not use software dsp things
14:51:55linuxstbi.e. we want all Rockbox features to work as well on the ipods as the other devices.
14:52:19DanielWand from the give hardware the ipod should be able to do that?
14:52:21bluebrotheryou can use software dsp, but it depends on codec, bitrate etc how good it works
14:52:33linuxstbDanielW: If we used both cores effectively, yes.
14:52:49linuxstbOr maybe even with a single core with more optimisation.
14:53:37DanielWand power: two cores both used "half" or one core used fully what would be less power consuming?

15:20:42DanielWwhere is it documented?
15:20:54pengothe descriptions are terrible. you need to have documention on the device itself.
15:21:12stripwaxDanielW - or, perhaps, come up with a proposal to make the behaviour of the Select button configurable (Play immediately or Add to playlist)
15:21:41DanielWno that is not my problem
15:22:03stripwaxpengo/DanielW - seriously, is this description terrible?
15:22:04DanielWmy problem is the behaviour in adding the complete view of tracks and not the single selected one

15:22:39DanielWto insert "one track"

15:23:54DanielWi am asking for a fast way to add a few single songs to the playlist
15:24:04DanielWat the moment that is really a hard job
15:24:06stripwaxDanielW - "Party Mode" ?
15:24:12stripwaxdid you try it?
15:24:29DanielWno, i am asking for the documention for that
15:24:33stripwaxIn the manual
15:24:36pengoI've always ignored party mode because i assumed it meant random/shuffle or something. if it's not obvious it needs to be documented on the device when you're selecting it.
15:24:57stripwaxDanielW - You want me to search for a page to link to the Party Mode documentation in the manual?
15:25:02DanielWEnables unstoppable music playback. When new songs are selected, they are queued at the end of the current dynamic playlist instead of being played immediately. Pausing and stopping playback is disabled as well as skipping songs and launching plugins.
15:25:16DanielWif that is correct it has nothing to do with my problem
15:25:26stripwaxRight. So what's the alternatvie? I think, the alternative is, to enable rockbox users to configure the behaviour of the Select button.
15:25:31stripwaxWhich is what I said earlier
15:25:45stripwaxto which you said "no that is not my problem"
15:25:50DanielWmy problem is i go to database -> artist -> an album -> select a song and now how to just add that track not the whole album
15:26:09pengoDanielW: sounds like you'd need a context menu
15:26:12stripwaxyes, currently you have to hold select, go to playlist -> insert

15:27:06stripwaxDanielW : - my proposal is to reduce it to 1 step, and you didn't like that either
15:27:13stripwaxhow can you do it with fewer than 1 steps, I'm not sure ...
15:27:17DanielWfor a complete normale operation on a mp3 player (add a track to playlist)
15:27:35DanielWsorry, i am just asking if i miss something
15:27:43DanielWa smarter way to do that i do not know
15:28:06stripwaxDanielW - is making Select configurable not smart enough? How would *you* think rockbox should work
15:28:09Slasherihmm, i think too a configurable select behaviour would be good. I never add whole folder to a playlist by selecting a single song but selecting the entire folder if i want it to be added
15:28:58stripwaxDanielW - btw, yes, adding a track to a playlist is a normal operation, but one Apple didn't even think about including on their ipod. Playing a track is a far more normal operation than building a dynamic playlist, so Select plays a track
15:29:04DanielWyes, select folder to add folder (or in database select "view") or select track to add track, would be nice
15:29:21stripwaxok, so it would work, as a solution to your problem. just so we're on the same page.
15:29:45DanielWselect does not play a track
15:30:02stripwaxwhat does it do then
15:30:24DanielWselect makes the current folder to the new current playlist and starts playback add the selected track
15:30:41pengostripwax: making "select" behaviour configurable is horrible. less modes is better. instead make the first option in the context menu "tag" and allow multiple items to be "tagged" and then allow the user to add all of them at once to the end or next (etc) in the playlist.
15:31:13stripwaxpengo - so that won't help DanielW much.
15:32:05DanielWwhat about holding "play" to just add a the selected song?
15:32:10stripwaxDanielW - well, yes. if you select a track to play it, it plays. what would you prefer to happen when the track finished (silence?)
15:32:28stripwaxDanielW - because that is STOP currently. And if you hold it even longer, OFF.
15:32:39DanielWok then holding next
15:32:54stripwaxSelect and Next on ipod do the same thing on an individual track
15:33:08stripwaxMaybe that would work on ipod, but might not work on devices that have fewer buttons
15:33:41stripwaxDanielW - but did you understand my point about Select playing a track? It does play a track currently. It also creates a new dynamic playlist.
15:34:35stripwaxpengo - but i do like the idea
15:34:44DanielWdon't get me wrong i like rockbox and thank the devs for the work. but i think in terms of usability it has some serious problems. even it it would work total stable and bugless i would not recommend it to someone who is not used to weird working thinks *g*
15:35:02DanielWfor example my brother
15:35:32stripwaxDanielW : ok so let's make a list, and constructively figure out how to solve each of the serious problems you think rockbox has in terms of usability
15:35:34DanielWstripwax: yes, but i don't want it to create a new playlist, instead it should just add that one track to the playlist
15:36:12stripwaxDanielW - yes - you said - and the way to add one track to the playlist is to go through the playlist menu. And I suggested we could change rockbox to make the Select button do this by default, instead. Does that make sense?
15:36:38stripwax(^by default - configurable as "the action to perform")
15:36:48stripwax(so not everyone's default, just yours)
15:36:52DanielWyes that would be nice
15:36:58 Quit aliask ("ChatZilla [Firefox]")
15:37:06 Part TrueJournals
15:37:25stripwaxDanielW - so, in the meantime, since this feature doesn't exist yet, what are you going to do
15:37:29DanielWthey should add more buttons to the ipod
15:37:35*stripwax laughs
15:37:40pengoi still haven't worekd out what DanielW's asking for exactly, but perhaps i think you need a configurable party mode e.g. [x] allow pause, [x] only allow stop only at end of track, etc. [x] always insert tracks next.. when playlist ends: (x) choose random ( ) repeat playlist ( ) stop
15:37:41stripwaxyes, they should.
15:37:53stripwaxpengo - ooh, nice. fiddly, though.
15:38:08stripwaxpengo - really that's no longer Party Mode though, it's just "restrictions"
15:38:10pengostripwax: less fiddly than changing your default select mode
15:38:12DanielWstripwax: i am going to use the context menu
15:38:20stripwaxDanielW- ok.
15:38:40pengostripwax: party mode / DJ mode.. different people party differently
15:38:43stripwaxpengo - mm, you think?
15:38:51stripwaxpengo - chuckle
15:39:00DanielWan option for what select should do (add and direct play or just add and if it should just the selected or all)
15:40:13DanielWstripwax: mhh if i select a folder and then press next what happens? get all folders in the current folder (where that folder is in) added to the playlist?
15:40:23stripwaxpengo - I still think putting the "always insert" behaviour under Party Mode would just mean some users choose to always run in Party Mode with that switch turned on. not really a party.
15:40:48pengostripwax: i'd like any rockbox i pick up to work the same.. UNLESS it's in party mode.. if i'm DJ'ing at a club i dont want to it to stop ever.. if i'm at a small gathering i want to stop it for the phone.. etc
15:40:58stripwaxDanielW - no, it will just 'step into' that directory...
15:41:07stripwaxSee my point earlier about Recursively Insert
15:41:28DanielWok and select?
15:41:31pengostripwax: the point is you can still turn off party mode and use it "normally"
15:41:33stripwaxpengo - ok, cool.
15:42:22pengois there a way to mark podcasts so they're not randomly shuffled to (during your party or otherwise)?
15:42:37stripwaxDanielW - yes, select will 'step into' that directory too. I mean, try it, and see for yourself, what everything does.
15:44:38DanielWok i tried
15:44:39stripwaxpengo - just that some people have a different interpretation of 'normal',. But I agree, making rockbox "work the same way" makes a whole lot of sense. Perhaps Party Mode could just be called Custom Mode (although that's rather stuffy) and to get a 'normal' rockbox you just turn off Custom Mode (i.e. turn off Party Mode as you say)
15:44:54stripwaxnaming doesn't really matter, I'll shut up on that now.
15:45:08pengostripwax: same diff, but party mode sounds better :)
15:45:21stripwaxbut yeah, I like the idea of putting all the 'well my default should be x not y' into a single mode which you can then just turn off
15:45:42pengoi could rant to you about interface decisions for hours :)

16:02:44stripwaxgioele - rockbox doesn't have a png viewer.
16:03:13stripwaxbluebrother - I think he wants it integrated into the ui (somehow), rather than just a separate thing to refer to
16:03:37bluebrotherblargh. Integrated manual is only a waste of space
16:03:39stripwaxe.g. like on a context menu, it would show you something relevant to where you are

16:04:24stripwaxhow is that using more space than storing the .txt manual on the device?
16:04:28*stripwax confused.. again ..
16:04:29bluebrotherplus, on small displays there is no room for that. Using a larger font and an ipod mini ...
16:04:59bluebrotherstripwax: you won't want to load the text snippets from disk every time, won't you?
16:05:08bluebrotherplus, you need code that handles this
16:05:14pengobluebrother: there's room on my nokia phone to do it.
16:05:35bluebrotherwell, you can't choose out of like 20 fonts on you phone
16:05:46stripwaxwell, yep, the feature doesn't exist yet, so it would need to be coded. why can't the system font be used?
16:05:54pengoeven my camera has built-in context help
16:05:55bluebrotherplus, nokia doesn't support older devices with small screens.
16:06:22stripwaxnot sure how that's relevant, old devices with small screens still had help built in
16:06:29bluebrotherusing sysfont will upset ipod video users −− they complain quite often about the small font ...
16:06:33stripwaxwhether they're supported now or not
16:06:50bluebrotherbut they don't use just a part of the screen for the help
16:07:07pengobluebrother: i never said to use just part of the screen
16:07:11stripwaxno, that's right, they show you the help on an otherwise empty screen
16:07:21stripwaxwould that be impossible for rockbox to do ..?
16:07:53pengoi didn't specify the "how" part quite deliberately, because it's non-obvious and there a few ways to go about it
16:08:01bluebrotherI don't think it's impossible but too much work without any real benefit.
16:08:19*stripwax wonders how many times people on #rockbox have answered questions about how the ui works ,..
16:08:27pengobluebrother: no real benefit to the developers who know the interface backwards
16:08:30bluebrotheryou learn the steps you're using in most cases anyway.
16:08:40*bluebrother doesn't know the interface backwards
16:08:49pengowell then there's benefit to the developers
16:08:52bluebrotherbut simply thinking logically really helps
16:09:05pengowhat does thinking logically tell you that "party mode" does?
16:09:16stripwaxDanielW was thinking logically earlier ..
16:09:28bluebrotherit's something that is used for parties.
16:09:45stripwaxmaybe it flashes the screen like party poppers?
16:10:05pengoi assumed it meant random/shuffle
16:10:14bluebrotherhehe −− doesn't sound logical to me. As Rockbox is about *playing* music ...
16:10:24 Part NineLives
16:10:48stripwaxmaybe it plays a 'guess the intro' game. that's quite popular at parties
16:11:06bluebrotherok, we could argue about party mode. But what is about the rest of the ui? Is using a context menu to enqueue a track so unintuitive?
16:11:18stripwaxbluebrother - apparently .... yes
16:11:32pengoabout playing music? rockbox has a starfield simulator and sudoku.
16:11:39*stripwax chuckles
16:11:49pengoso let's think logically about that

16:14:57pengodoesn't have to be well
16:15:08stripwaxok, pretty easy then. just skip blocks from the pcm buffer

16:16:39pengomarkun: cool :)
16:16:58pengostripwax: linear crossfade.. hmm
16:16:59stripwaxpengo - nah. fill up 100% of the pcm buffer, but playback skips say 100 bytes out of every 1000 bytes ->10% speedup
16:17:31stripwaxmarkun - hm, how bad? I wrote the (original) pitchshifter plugin for Buzz that way, didn't seem too bad..
16:17:35markunpengo: just watched when the audio signal passed 0 (from - to +) and then skipped samples until the next one
16:17:38pengostripwax: 100 bytes out of a 1000 byte wave = 10% pitch increase

16:19:02markunpengo: feel free to implement it. A bad implementation is better than no implementaion at all imo

16:22:18stripwaxpengo - most of the time spent decoding mp3 is in evaluating the DCT (discrete cosine transform - cousin of the fft). doing two more for every block will mean you end up running out of cpu and playback no longer realtime
16:22:33stripwaxin fact you'd have to run the speed shift just to get tracks to sound realtime again :-)

18:07:46j257Some days ago i have installed rockbox on another iPod Video 30Gb - it works perfect

18:10:04bluebrothergioele: well, I used foobar to replaygain my mp3 files, so either it uses RGAD or Rockbox supports the TXXX field used by foobar.
