#rockbox log for 2007-06-26

00:00:08saratogaprint out the pointer and make sure its being passed correctly?
00:00:13saratogathat usually the first thing I do
00:00:45linuxstb_I would expect it to either work, or to crash. I wouldn't expect it to do nothing...
00:00:48mud-rockboxis there some easy way to do debug prints without the plugin_api interface?

00:00:53mud-rockboxyeah, doing nothing was certainly nto expected
00:01:13saratogaif you're in the sim, theres DEBUGF
00:01:30linuxstbDo the exact same rb->whatever calls work in your main .c file?
00:02:49mud-rockboxyeah, i think it was the exact same call, i just copy and pasted, let me make sure

00:08:29linuxstbmud-rockbox: I would just declare it "extern" in your other C files, and make it non-static in the main .c
00:09:02mud-rockboxyeah that was actually how i had it before but i thought maybe linker didn't like that somehow. is that what static is supposed to mean, that you can't extern it somewhere else?
00:09:19saratogayeah static means its local to your current file
00:09:33saratogaamoung other things
00:09:50saratogastatic has to be one of the most overloaded keywords in any language

00:23:50threekiloscocaiwhich should work i think

00:28:31threekiloscocaiif something in the wpscode was wrong i'd get the standardwps, wouldnt i?
00:35:04threekiloscocaido i have 2 active albumart somewhere? in a config or something else then the wps
00:36:03peturalbumart is pretty much unsupported here (most devs don't know about it)
00:36:19peturafaik, you don't need to activate it
00:36:33threekiloscocaiwell, at least its in the wiki, so i thought...
00:36:37peturmaybe the graphics are the wrong format?
00:36:43pixelmais your album art still only a tag by any chance
00:37:01threekiloscocaiits a 24bit cover.bmp
00:37:05threekiloscocaiin the same dir as the file
00:37:24pixelmaok, no idea then (don't know much about it)
00:40:30mud-rockboxdata abort message is probably something like seg fault?
00:41:01peturor misaligned data
00:41:28mud-rockboxoh, that might be it
00:41:47mud-rockboxarm is like natural alignment or whatever that is? 1 aligned to 1, 2 to 2, 4 to 4, etc?
00:47:44bluebrotherwell, the AlbumArt wiki page clearly says it's unofficial and unsupported ...
00:48:09bluebrotherbut you could try building a sim and watch the output −− it might give you hints why a theme isn't working

05:53:50Soapbut that's a third generation issue, mini and 4th will charge from USB.
05:54:03jhMikeSwhat's the charge current from the 12V?
05:55:22Soapdon't know. wouldn't 5/12th the USB current draw be a safe ballpark figure?

09:47:37mud-rbgame recorder/viewer for go/igo/baduk/weiqi
09:47:50mud-rbi could do it on not much RAM, but i'm mostly stealing code from gnugo
09:48:00mud-rbwhich uses memory like it is its job, apparently
09:48:39GodEatera professional memory thief
09:49:50mud-rbi was hoping to port the whole thing, but i had to cut out large sections of just the basic like game board handling just to get it under 512K with room to spare, so i'm not sure how feasible that is
09:50:29mud-rbmaybe if i steal the audio buffer and rework a lot of code to use that instead
09:55:10Zagorwhat on earth is it using all that memory for? 12-hour games?
09:55:30mud-rbit has a lot of hashing and such
09:56:02mud-rbmostly to make it fast to undo changes and things like that

11:07:55GodEaterhmm - are we completely 100% sure that the hardware in the 80GB iPod is the same as the 60GB iPod (obviously apart from the disk) ?
11:08:39GodEaterthe reason I ask this is because I've just helped a colleague install RB on his 60GB, and it runs noticeably slower than mine
11:09:38scorcheGodEater: and you are running the exact same build under the same conditions/settings?
11:09:58GodEaternot yet - my own is running a slightly older build
11:10:17GodEaterI'm about to update it to see if there's any difference
11:10:26GodEaterbut I wouldn't expect mine to have just slowed down miraculously
11:11:06GodEaterand I'm mainly talking about the UI experience whilst nothing is playing
11:11:17GodEaterscrolling through the file list on his was quiet sluggish
11:11:27GodEaterwhilst on mine it's very acceptable
11:11:33scorchewell, to answer your question, yes they are the same

11:34:12markunLlorean: I don't know. Maybe a different revision of the portalplayer chip or something?
11:35:01linuxstb_AFAIK, the LCD updates go via the Broadcom chip, so maybe newer versions of the Broadcom firmware are faster? Running test_fps.c would be interesting

11:35:30*Llorean was beginning to think in that direction, but hadn't got there yet

12:06:18mud-rbchip makers should advertise clock speeds in raw hertz instead of mhz, it sure looks more impressive that way

15:23:40webguest70no, I've been using the jbuild for the past few days

15:24:14dionoeaeveryone i guess
15:24:27dionoeaif you havea video ipod, use the apple firmware for video playback
15:24:40linuxstbwebguest70: The jbuild is very old, and probably doesn't include improvements made to the USB/power detection in Rockbox, which will be in today's build.
15:24:46dionoearockbox doesn't know how to use the dedicaded chip yet (and it won't in the near future)

15:25:03linuxstbwebguest70: Also, it's hard for us to help if you're not using the very latest official build.
15:25:14JoleBoleit's slow as 1fps
15:25:30linuxstbJoleBole: Did you read the wiki page that explains why it's bad on the ipod video?
15:25:59JoleBolewell I read all the instructions how to encode, and what parameters to use
15:26:05webguest70ok, I'll try it using today's build and see what happens

15:26:48linuxstbThe PluginMpegplayer page that has all the encoding info
15:27:13JoleBolewell I read almost everything on that page...

15:28:05dionoeayou can't have good video performance
15:28:11markunJoleBole: as you can see from the table, only 10fps full screen
15:28:17LloreanJoleBole: It says very clearly on that page that it performs poorly on the iPod Video.

15:29:28JoleBoleyes slow too

15:31:28LloreanYes, but you were mentioning numbers.
15:31:38dionoeawhich is what we've all been saying for the last 10 minutes if you'd read
15:31:41JoleBoleI know sorry...
15:31:45LloreanThe page says very, very clearly it's poor on the iPod Video because we can't use the broadcom chip
15:31:57LloreanEveryone here was thinking you were getting worse than the normal "poor" because you were mentioning specific numbers.
15:32:36LloreanRockbox plays video fine on many other players, but the iPod Video has a large screen, and a slow processor. Video won't be better on it unless someone figures out the Broadcom chip, which is somewhat unlikely to happen any time soon.
15:32:59GodEaterif ever
15:33:32JoleBolethat's bad...
15:33:45LloreanBlame Apple or Broadcom.
15:33:51markunstill, the difference between 1 and 10 fps should be quite visible I think
15:33:55JoleBoleI blame both
15:34:40JoleBoleSo what do u think is the solution for the problem....makeing apple or broadcom share the code ?

16:18:56RhinoBangak ... I've discovered that the ID3 support only caters for tags up to 300 bytes
16:19:07RhinoBangawith lyrics, etc my tracks regularly beat that
16:19:25RhinoBangaso I changed id3.h to increase the buffer to 1024 bytes
16:19:29LloreanWhat do lyrics have to do with the database, though?
16:19:43RhinoBangaCOMM fields
16:19:57RhinoBangak ... maybe not lyrics ... but descriptions of tracks, etc
16:20:30RhinoBangawhen I rebuild the database everything seems to work, i.e rockbox parses my 8000+ files on my iPod
16:20:41RhinoBangawhen I reboot the database is empty
16:20:46 Quit hcs ("Leaving.")
16:20:55RhinoBangaand it asks me if I want to initialize it
16:21:55RhinoBangalooks like the db doesn't handle the change I made
16:23:00RhinoBangaif I make the buffer smaller (e.g. 500 bytes) the database gets built but still a lot of my tracks are classed as "untagged"
16:24:21RhinoBangayou can see the problem easily via the id3 test program
16:25:01RhinoBangaload up an MP3 with a load of text and you will see that tags after the 300th byte are ignored
16:25:21LloreanWeren't you asking about nearly the exact same problem earlier?
16:25:22SlasheriRhinoBanga: check TAG_MAXLEN in tagcache.h
16:25:33SlasheriRhinoBanga: that is just ~500 bytes
16:25:47RhinoBangaahhh ... that'll be it

16:27:14RhinoBangain my opinion though 300/500 bytes is a bit small, especially with lyrics, track details, etc held in the tags
16:27:58SlasheriRhinoBanga: you could create a nice patch as well, defining those both in a single define at some nice place
16:28:35RhinoBangawouldn't know how to make a patch, and since I presume you guys know how to do it and do it all the time I thought it would be quicker for you :D

16:29:16SlasheriRhinoBanga: you don't use svn?
16:30:01RhinoBangaI only used the svn command to get the source ... svn is not my revision control software of choice, I use perforce
16:30:26Slasheriok, but then just typing svn diff is enough to produce the patch
16:30:52RhinoBangak ... I'll give it a try
16:31:03LloreanIMHO we shouldn't change the size in SVN though, it'll be more flexible with metadata on buffer but considering only one person has ever reported running into this limit, I think it's not actually a "problem"
16:31:48RhinoBangaunless people think it's just a bug with rb and don't bother reporting it ... it's only because I'm a developer that I bothered to tarce the issue
16:32:35markunRhinoBanga: new devs are welcome :)
16:32:43SlasheriLlorean: true, but unifying the define could be still good
16:32:52RhinoBangadoing it as we speak
16:32:55LloreanSlasheri: Unifying the define, I'm fine with.
16:33:06LloreanSlasheri: Just stating the patch should keep the sizes the same. ;)
16:33:35SlasheriLlorean: hehe, indeed :)
16:35:17LloreanI mean, I guess the size for in the database itself, I don't care so much about. But the ID3 struct doesn't need to be oversized for lyrics when we don't even support lyrics.
16:36:01RhinoBangaeven if you don't support them you have no idea where the supported tags
16:36:09RhinoBangathey could be after 300 bytes of lyrics

22:16:57Domonokymake a patch, and post it in the tracker..
22:17:24Bagderand allow me to mention that it most likely won't be applied...

22:18:34Domonokyi though a patch to unify those two defines, (whithout changing the size) would be ok ?? ..

22:25:06LloreanThen just go to the patch tracker and post a new task, and upload it.

22:53:53jhMikeSthe radio always writes 5+addr bytes
22:53:54Hilikusso that the random change directory chooses another directory (album)

22:56:04Hilikuspixelma im using that already, what i want is, a way to force a change in directory because sometimes that plugin you mentioned, jumps to an album that i heard an hour ago or so, because its random, so i need to force a new random directory selection
22:56:19cropjhMikeS: and one more thing: in the right head phone I hear low noise, in the same rhythm as music goes. I don't know if it's RB or the phone.
22:56:29Hilikuswhich now i do but changing songs until i go over the last song and the plugin works again choosing a new album randomly

23:28:23AJShi , i have an erro when trying to install rockbox
23:28:52AJSi posted the error message in under the name GIGABEAT ERROR
23:30:01amiconn(pages 10..11)
23:30:22mud-rbajs: post a link? i'm lazy
23:32:15mud-rbso it just freezes after ROCKBOX LOADED ?
23:32:54mud-rbhmm, i'm not sure. i guess just try the install again and make sure you're following the instructions to the letter
23:33:06AJSi read somewhere the firmware v may be the problem
23:33:33AJSi have tried to install it several times
23:33:45AJSwith the same results
23:34:05mud-rbi see, sorry then i guess someone who knows gigabeat will have to help if there's nothing in the forums or something
23:34:26AJSno , whel thanks anyway

23:41:33jhMikeSwould think the suggested solution is incorrect for a master receiver then. for count == 2 it should read a byte, ack, read the last and not ack.
23:43:48amiconnIiuc a master receiver _always_ acknowledges
23:44:08amiconnA slave receiver would nack the last byte to stop the master
23:44:16amiconnAs mentioned, _iiuc_
23:45:00jhMikeSread section 7.2, last para on p 10
23:45:38jhMikeSnot acking tells the slave transmitter the master receiver is done
23:45:47amiconnAh yes
23:47:56jhMikeSslave receiver acks every byte
23:48:32amiconnA slave receiver can also nack, even its address
23:49:32amiconnBut these nacks would be error conditions
23:54:04jhMikeSI suppose the corrent fix is: if (count <= 1), not if (count <= 2)
