#rockbox log for 2007-12-01

00:04:29bobruleswill rockbox support lyrics in the future?
00:05:01bobrulesor something that will auto open a txt file with the lyric in it
00:05:44 Quit spiorf (Remote closed the connection)
00:07:47LloreanI wonder if the current patch has been adapted to MoB
00:08:17DerPapstah.. there is already a lyricspatch?
00:08:36LloreanThere's an snc viewer
00:08:45LloreanWhich I believe is a sort of lyrics thingy
00:09:04DerPapstheh.. no idea what snc is ;)
00:09:34LloreanI believe they're synchronized lyrics files
00:09:38 Quit mf0102 ("Verlassend")
00:09:39*jhMikeS wants a lyics patch with the bouncing ball that follows the words (since it's only proper :)
00:09:43roolkuit also plays lrc, lrc8 and embedded (in mp3) lyrics
00:10:05Lloreanroolku: Why's it restricted to MP3?
00:10:06DerPapstsounds nice ;)
00:10:13Lloreanroolku: And has it been updated to use MoB?
00:10:14roolkuit is nice :)
00:10:21bobrulesdo I have to patch my rockbox manually?
00:10:55pixelmaIIRC there are even 2 lyrics patches
00:10:56DerPapstbobrules: you have to get the rockbox source, patch it and compile it yourself
00:11:37bobrulesno thanks
00:11:44pixelmathe other one is older and probably not mainted but if I'm not confusing something it supports embedded lyrics

00:13:23roolkubobrules: well, then you definitely need sncviewer :)
00:14:00DerPapstis it a plugin or actually displayed in the wps?
00:14:29roolkuit probably needs some adjustments to work properly after mob
00:14:36roolkuDerPapst: plugin
00:14:58bobrulesso I don't have to compile myself?
00:15:14roolkubobrules: unless you find someone to do it for you
00:15:49DerPapstbut before someone has to sync the patch or am i wrong?

00:17:05Lloreanroolku: It's restricted to MP3 metadata for embedded tags?
00:17:37Lloreanand does it use metadata on buffer?
00:17:42Rilesanyone know why an iriver iHP-140 would load the rockbox boot loader and then just sit there? its got the .rockbox dir... perfect directory structure... any ideas?
00:17:55RilesI did however buy this iriver in korea.

00:19:13LloreanRiles: Is it definitely FAT32 formatted?
00:19:24LloreanD|STORT|ON: That has nothing to do with Rockbox, at all.
00:19:25Rilesyes thing works just fine in regular mode
00:19:51D|STORT|ONwhy dose rockbox eat my battery like as if i was watching a movie ?
00:20:14LloreanD|STORT|ON: The hardware is undocumented, which means we aren't using things as efficiently as would be ideal.
00:20:27LloreanRiles: And what's the last line on the bootloader screen?
00:20:48roolkuLlorean: yes, and there is a lot of scope of using MOB for storage of lyrics - currently it accesses the disk for every track
00:20:48Rilesi think its the voltage
00:21:05roolkuLlorean: but then I am not sure if we want all this functionality in the core
00:21:22Lloreanroolku: Well, better to discuss it with some people before committing, either way
00:21:36Lloreanroolku: Embedded lyrics can surely at least be stored on buffer when normal metadata is parsed, at the very least.
00:22:19LloreanRiles: No, I mean "Turn it on, and tell me exactly what the last line says"
00:22:31roolkuroolku: yeah, but this would mean all the parsing code would have to go to the core
00:22:36bobrulescan rockbox open .lrc files as txt right now?
00:22:45*roolku talks to himself
00:22:48Rilesk 1 sec
00:23:04linuxstbroolku: Not necessarily the parsing code, just enough code to load them into the buffer. I've no idea what the format is though.
00:23:07roolkuLlorean: also it would castrate the editing functionality

00:23:31Rilesthats it
00:23:42Lloreanroolku: At the same time, it'd open the way to having Lyrics in the WPS, which might be preferred.
00:23:44roolkulinuxstb: it supports a various formats in various encodings
00:24:03Lloreanroolku: I'm just saying, get some feedback all around. Maybe post to the -dev mailing list about it.
00:24:12Llorean"Is this how we want lyrics done in Rockbox?" etc.

00:26:39roolkuconsidering that we definitely don't want editing of lyrics in the core, the plugin would still be justified as an editor

00:27:20roolkuit wouldn't impact whether there were provisions for (limited) lyrics display in the core
00:28:01roolkuLlorean: no, I am talking about synchronising the lyrics to the music
00:28:04RilesLlorean can you be more specific? Oh its a logical disk it says.
00:28:11DerPapstroolku: and how would you save the modified lyrics back to the metadata if that isn't in the core? can the plugin handle that?
00:28:29LloreanRiles: 0x0b or 0x0c. If you're on linux, fdisk -l should show them, I think.
00:28:37Riles1 sec
00:28:48DerPapstiirc ipodpatcher can that too
00:28:54roolkuDerPapst: that exactly is the problem - it only works if the lyrics are stored on disk and read from disk
00:29:16jhMikeSamiconn: now I'm getting really interesting stuff. r15637 (which ran) and r15637 (which crashed) now both show the battery low problem (those are before the LCD update). This happens using the latest SVN bootloader. Now if I run them using the bootloader from that time, they're both starting. :\
00:29:32roolkuone could in theory extend the plugin api to allow this kind of manipulation, but it certainly isn't kiss

00:30:41amiconnjhMikeS: Yeah, they don't have that extra delay, and the current bootloader is faster due to the lcd speedups
00:30:51jhMikeSchange that to r15638 (which crashed)
00:30:58DerPapstroolku: hmm... then the user has to deal with it ;)
00:30:59linuxstbroolku: Llorean just beat me to it, but what targets does it run on? Does it work on hwcodec?

00:42:18roolkuI am tempted to market sncviewer as a lyrics editor that can import various lyrics files and always writes standard lrc8 files (lrc in utf-8)
00:42:56bobruleslyric is always useful, I sing a lot
00:43:01DerPapstwithout putting anything n the core?
00:43:14roolkuin the future there could be limited lyrics functionality in the core that reads these lrc8 files (only?) and displays them in the WPS
00:43:46DerPapstwithout loading them from the metadata?
00:44:31roolkuthere are still a few undecided problems - the text needs to be wrapped to screen width and the line length can be potentially quite long
00:44:59roolkuDerPapst: depends what you mean by metadata - it would work like album art currently
00:45:06pixelmasomeone also had a look at the other lyrics patch?
00:45:47DerPapstroolku; i mean the lyrics embedden in the song file (e.g. mp3)
00:45:57roolkupixelma: the only other one I know just reads the unsynchronised lyrics from mp3 and displays them as text
00:46:29pixelmayes, that's the one I mean
00:46:36roolkuDerPapst: hence the (only?) - I am quite happy with lrc(8) files
00:47:22roolkupixelma: that is a niche marked that sncviewer doesn't cater for (yet) ;)
00:47:56DerPapstroolku: i would probably happy with that either... since i don't have much lyroics anyways ;)

00:53:56linuxstbroolku: My first reaction is that the plugin is very bloated - which makes it hard to maintain. Does it _really_ need all those features, including cuesheet editing?
00:54:55 Nick bobrules is now known as bobrules1 (
00:55:19roolkulinuxstb: well cue sheets are only a special case of lyrics for the plugin and I think it is quite handy if you have a cue sheet that doesn;t quite match your audio file

01:05:55pixelmaroolku: the patch I find more interesting (since 95% of the lyrics I have are stored in plain txt anyways) and which ypi seem to maintain recently is the mod plugin. IIRC amiconn was also interested in committing it but found out that there could be licence problems (don't remember the details). Do you know anything about it?
01:07:23roolkupixelma: iirc it is based on mikimod - I'll have a quick look
01:08:37roolkupixelma: but I though the consensus was that a module player that could play all the other formats it and xm and whatnot was preferable
01:09:07amiconnIt's not mikmod based afaik
01:09:48roolkupixelma: regarding your plaintext lyrics files - with sncviewer you could change that quickly ;)
01:10:07 Join linuxstb_ [0] (
01:10:58pixelmaroolku: I didn't know there was a consensus - just remember that amiconn said this is simple enough code that there is a /possibility/ to make it work on hwcodec

01:11:05amiconn"It is based on an old open source module player for gravis ultrasound (unfortunately I forgot the name, if anyone finds out please inform me)."
01:11:27*amiconn actually prefers lyrics in plaintext

01:12:22DerPapstand it only plays mod files up to ~480kb?
01:12:31amiconnAn old open source mod player with no name is not specific enough to find out which license it is under, and hence whether it's gpl compatible
01:12:53roolkuDerPapst: this could be changed now that we have MOB

02:18:33linuxstbIMO the picture would be useful.
02:23:08Soapcan you make every line a conditional to the hold button status so you can display twice the info?
02:23:54SoapCan you have the WPS show data when hold is off, and tags when hold is on? As in "Here's the WPS" (switch hold) "Here's how it works!" ;)

02:25:12psycho_maniacoh thats a good idea
02:26:26psycho_maniacwell at least this is a start.
02:26:42SoapMakes me think there should be a conditional on backlight status. You could have a tease of a WPS where there is a pretty girl in a bathing suit as a background, and when the backlight goes out, her clothes disappear.
02:28:59PaulJamSoap: you can't have the backdrop in a conditional.

02:44:09KleviVLC can encode.. can it encode a ripped dvd movie to Mpeg2?
02:44:23Klevi*assuming Winff wont handle it*
02:47:15Klevioh... well the wiki pointed at something that may work (Vlc auto transcoding) I'll try it.
02:47:54Soapffmpeg is so much more flexible than VLC. If you can get Winff working, I strongly suggest it.
02:48:29LloreanWinFF accepts decrypted VOBs as input.
02:48:50LloreanI recommend using a tool to merge them and strip out all non-movie data such as trailers, special features, etc, though
02:50:37psycho_maniacon some dvds those non movie stuff are seperate vob files
02:50:50ddaltonwhat about in the track info menu. ok id3->length then
02:50:58ddaltonthat fails with the quick screen part...
02:52:03psycho_maniacdo vob files include sound?
02:52:09linuxstbddalton: I'm not sure how the track info menu relates to the quick screen - what are you trying to do?
02:53:16linuxstbpsycho_maniac: Yes. VOB files are basically the same format as mpegplayer files - multiplexed audio and video streams in an MPEG Program Stream, but with extra DVD-specific packets as well.
02:54:33Klevihm sadly in this i cant find just the whole movie... just split sections of it.
02:57:22linuxstbKlevi: This isn't really on-topic for this channel. You could try visiting the specialist video-encoding websites/forums, such as and reading their guides to DVD ripping/converting. Or try searching for help with winff - it's not a Rockbox specific tool.

I think I have it worked out ok. But my only error is that id3->elapsed isn't declared.
03:08:02ddaltonif I go down the file and type talk_value(id3->elapsed, UNINT_TIME_EXACT, true); in the id3 viewer stuff it works.
03:08:08ddaltonIll double check that actually
03:09:07psycho_maniacanybody see the new rockbox towers wiki page?

03:14:22linuxstbddalton: There is no reason why it shouldn't work. You just need to add the line " struct mp3entry* id3 = audio_current_track();" at the start of the function, and you can then access the id3 struct for the current track.
03:15:00linuxstbI would expect that function to return NULL if playback isn't playing.

03:19:19ddalton talk_value(id3->elapsed, UNIT_TIME_EXACT, true);
03:19:56ddaltonwell the patch has the quick screen in a function and I am putting the line talk_value(id3->elapsed, UNIT_TIME_EXACT, true);
03:20:35ddaltonin that function. So how come 100 lines down id3->elapsed works fine but it doesn't in a function 100 lines up?
03:21:14linuxstbIs "id3" declared in your function?
03:21:52ddaltonisn't id3 a struct and it works in lots of places in rockbox id3->elapsed
03:22:21linuxstbNo, it's not a global variable.
03:22:47linuxstbYou need to do what I said a few lines ago - call the audio_current_track().

03:31:38KleviRadio problem, recently noted that either my Sansa's Antennae is broken... or that the Radio isnt being tuned properly.
03:31:47KleviI cant pickup and stations at all
03:32:18Klevier, any rather.
03:33:15linuxstbddalton: Because the functions in playback.c declare it (and get its value from somewhere) before using it. Which is what I'm trying to explain that you need to do...
03:33:58pixelmaKlevi: as I said, the radio support is a bit unstable on c200 still
03:34:12Klevi. how do I get to "scan" mode
03:35:11pixelmawhat I do - either reboot or if that doesn't help, booting the sandisk OF and starting the radio once there does
03:35:15KleviI can only flip between presets ive made.
03:35:40KleviPixelma.. actually i just tried that... and now the radio works at least.
03:35:58pixelma"Rec" changes between preset and scan mode
03:36:19Klevidanke =
03:36:36 Part dan_a
03:36:51pixelmamaybe that can be improved later, don't know it's not easy to find proper keybindings
03:37:44Lloreanpixelma: "Rec" is a very bad button for this, I think
03:37:45Klevihow about RDS support
03:38:26KleviShouldnt record, thinking logically, be used to capture from the radio? lol
03:38:42pixelmaLlorean: yes maybe, but currently you can't record from the radio screen anyways (on swcodec)
03:38:47KleviIm kidding with the sarcasm.
03:38:56 Nick fxb is now known as fxb__ (
03:39:21Lloreanpixelma: Yes, but the Record button could shortcut to the recording screen. Either way, it should be kept free for future use (if possible)
03:39:42pixelmaLlorean: and that mapping wasn't thought through much just getting it to work, I admit
03:40:09LloreanWell the e200 had "Rec" to switch modes too, for a while at least.
03:40:34KleviIt works as it is.. heh.
03:43:40pixelmaLlorean: if it is possible on the Ondio to have a button for recording in the radio one should think that it is possible on the c200 too - though you switch preset/scan mode through the menu there but 3 more buttons on the c200...

04:20:37blkthndrI have a problem with my H10, I booted into the original firmware and my music folder became hidden. I'm not running windows so I cannot unhide the folder. I know I can view it using the view all files option, but there are other folders I would like to remain hidden, is there any way I can fix this without creating a new folder?
04:24:29blkthndrI'm using ubuntu as my os, but also have access to a mac, if either of these can change the hidden status of the folder
04:24:52krazykitblkthndr, they should be able to. consult their documentation on how to unset the "hidden" attribute.
04:25:48blkthndrthe problem is they do not register as hidden to either of them, only to windows and rockbox
04:28:17krazykitblkthndr, install mtools, and check out the man page for mattrib. you should be able to fix it that way.

13:08:23n1sI was thinking and fiddeling a bit with the midi codec idea and realised that I really didn't know how this works... where should I call the file parser/loader? is it ok in the metadata reader or will that be called more than once for a file?

13:09:18 Join linuxstb_ [0] (n=linuxstb@rockbox/developer/linuxstb)
13:09:23Nico_Pthe playback code only uses get_metadata once per file, but the database also uses it
13:10:14n1sNico_P: do you have a suggestion from where it should be called?
13:10:24Nico_Pit might be better to sparate that from get_metadata though... and call it from audio_load_track
13:11:59n1sok, another thing I thought about was the bufalloc function, if I understand correctly it want's a pointer to the data to load but I really can't load all those patches into memory, they should go directly to the buffer...
13:12:32Nico_Pthen git bufalloc a NULL pointer and then write to the buffer it gives you
13:13:03Nico_Pyou need to know the size in advance though
13:14:25Nico_Pn1s: are the patches individual files?
13:14:36n1sNico_P: yes
13:14:45Nico_Pthen maybe you could use bufopen on each ofthem
13:15:02Nico_Pthere is a small overhead for the handles though
13:15:52n1swould i just pass the handle id from bufalloc to bufgetdata to get a pointer?
13:16:19n1s(as there are other things than patches to load...
13:17:17Nico_Pbut be careful of the wrapping... you might want to use a nonwrapping data type
13:17:40n1sand then how would i give the handle ids to the codec? (did i mention that i don't know how this works :))
13:17:47Nico_Phmm actually bufalloc doesn't allow wrapping
13:18:46Nico_PI think it would be best to write a callback func in playback.c and add it to the codec API
13:19:33 Join Zagor [0] (n=bjst@rockbox/developer/Zagor)
13:19:38linuxstb_Nico_P: Can I also ask a basic question about MoB? I understand that the metadata is stored in the buffer when the track is initially buffered. But what happens when the track is being played? Must the metadata be copied to static structs, or can it be left in the buffer?
13:20:52ZagorI see a usb serial driver committed. has anyone tried it yet (I'm on a train without my sansa for a few more hours)
13:21:14linuxstb_Zagor: I don't think anyone has mentioned it in IRC.
13:21:14Nico_Plinuxstb_: currently it is copied to a static struct because the codec needs a pointer to it, so we can't make it use the metadata from the main buffer... without this limitation we could use only the on-buffer metadata quite fine
13:21:36Nico_Pactually I think austriacoder said something about it
13:21:47linuxstb_Nico_P: Sure - he committed it...
13:22:02Nico_Pyeah but I think he said something about it in IRC too
13:22:15n1sNico_P: sorry for being dense but how would this callback work?
13:22:23 Quit linuxstb (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
13:22:45linuxstb_Nico_P: I know, I assumed Zagor was asking about people other than austriancoder.
13:23:01Nico_Plinuxstb_: ah;, ok :)
13:23:34Nico_Pn1s: the codec API has a pointer to it, so the codec doesn't call it direclty but still uses it... the callbacks are defined in playback.c as codec_*_callback
13:24:00Zagorlinuxstb_: thanks for translating :-)
13:24:36Nico_Pn1s: they are executed on the codec thread and have access to the playback.c code
13:24:50linuxstb_Nico_P: Going back to the metadata, am I right in thinking that it can potentially be moved around the buffer to prevent holes appearing?
13:25:01Nico_Plinuxstb_: it is
13:26:01Nico_Pthe sequential order of handles in memory is always kept the same though, so maybe it's not exactly what you were suggesting
13:26:53n1sNico_P: would this callback be called (indirectly) by the codec and would return relevant handle ids, which playback.c would have to remember then?
13:27:52Nico_Pn1s: yes, except I think it would be even better if it returned something like a pointer to the patches the codec can use directly... the callback would do the hID->pointer translation
13:28:22bertrikZagor: I'll try it tomorrow
13:28:30Nico_Pthat way the codec completely abstracts itself from the way the patches are stored
13:30:03Zagorbertrik: yeah me too
13:30:18Nico_Pn1s: look at codec_filebuf_callback and codec_request_buffer_callback for examples
13:30:33n1sNico_P: i think I'm slowly getting this... to check 1) audio_load_track calls the file loader which uses buffalloc (for structs) and bufopen (for patches) and saves handle ids somewhere 2) codec calls callback which retrieves handle ids from that same somewhere and gives the codec pointers
13:30:50Nico_Pn1s: yes
13:31:14Zagor I read in the log that austriancoder wants the driver settings back. I wonder if multiple configurations would be a better solution than switching manually. that way the stack would be storage until you start logf_reader (or whatever) on the host
13:31:27Nico_PI'd say the biggest problem left is where to store the handle IDs :)

13:33:08Nico_Pno, it would be fine I guess... I'm afraid there aren't many other ways
13:33:25Nico_Pmaybe the buffering API should provide a way to get the handle IDs
13:33:42linuxstb_Zagor: How would that work? Are you saying that you could attach your device to a computer, and it would connect as a UMS device, but then starting logf_reader on the host would switch the device to Serial?

19:21:59krazykitcountrymonkey, you don't need to spam the same thing over and over. when somebody checks them out, they'll tell you
19:23:27countrymonkeySory, usualy irc is fast so I thought it didn't go through.

19:27:09zecountrymonkey: irc is only as fast as its users
19:27:52Lloreancountrymonkey: There's no need to come in here and ask about flyspray tasks anyway.
19:27:53countrymonkeyI remember fast-passed discussion on this channel. I guess I was on in one of those fast times.
19:28:07LloreanThe people who are likely to commit them do watch Flyspray.
19:28:47LloreanThe only time there's really a good reason to come in and ask about one is if it's a patch to code, and you're the person working on it and want to know if there's something about it that would keep it from getting in.
19:29:16LloreanOr if it's been on there long enough that it seems like it's getting lost. Which is more than just a few days
19:30:49LloreanThe entire *point* of flyspray is to notify us "Have a look at this patch", so coming in here every time you're interested in one of them is just a good way to get people annoyed with you in the long term.
19:32:22countrymonkeyIt is just since they are language updates, (and czech hasn't been updated in a long time) and those kind of patches can get quickly out-of-date, I thought maybe...
19:32:52n1sAnd since they are translation updates basically only people who understand the language commits them

20:56:31hanseatichello people
20:58:26hanseaticjust googled for the right mp3 device and found the rockbox project, and it sounds really awsome
20:59:05matmat07so far I have used it its good
20:59:11hanseaticnow i am looking for the right hardware to buy
20:59:32_jzSansa E2xx serie is cheap is good but has a few flaws
20:59:45n1shanseatic: it depends a lot on what is important to you
21:00:05hanseaticthnx, it should have a "line in" port, a usb host, hd >=20GB
21:00:05n1severy player has it's pros and cons
21:00:12_jz- prioprietary USB connector / micro-SD instead of real SD / open design which leads dust to enter into the device and under the screen
21:00:30_jzhanseatic: sansa is not what you're looking for :)
21:00:32n1shanseatic: rockbox doesn't support usb host on any targets (yet)
21:00:37_jzi'd say Iaudio or iRiver
21:00:45matmat07what would be wrong with the sansa e200?
21:00:58_jzhanseatic: but you can boot the original firmware to use it as a USB host, don't run away scared :)
21:01:08n1shanseatic: however a iriver h300 has those features and the hw for usb host
21:01:12hanseaticok, but i read something that rockbox can boot beside the original firmware
21:01:14_jzmatmat07: like i said : prioprietary USB connector / micro-SD instead of real SD / open design which leads dust to enter into the device and under the screen
21:01:45matmat07oh, sorry, missed that line
21:02:03BigBambihanseatic: If you want a line in on the unit and not through a dock, and usb host, then you want an iriver H300
21:02:05_jznp :)
21:02:10n1shanseatic: on most targets it can (not iaudio without an unofficial patch though)
21:02:12BigBambiBut it'll have to be second hand
21:02:19hanseaticso, there should be the possibility to host other usb devices for casual copy-sessions
21:02:38_jzdon't you know that copying is morally wrong ?! :)
21:02:41BigBambiIf you want better recording (optical + line in + out) but no usb host, that'll be the iriver H100
21:02:57_jzonly buying will lead you to the path or righteousness !
21:03:06n1s_jz: pleas stop it

21:03:59_jzn1s: you know about those two words, right ?
21:04:03BigBambi_jz: I believe he is requesting on-topicness
21:04:05n1s_jz: how about comments that don't add anything to the discussion?
21:04:09Llorean_jz: Both, this is an on topic channel about Rockbox, and for technical discussion
21:04:18BigBambi_jz: And don't be rude please
21:04:33hanseaticthe thing is, it should be for a half year trip to afrika, a pc will not travel along
21:04:40_jzok i'll look somewhere else for humorous people
21:04:49_jzsorry for the noise
21:04:49BigBambi_jz: good
21:04:50 Part _jz ("Leaving.")
21:05:07hanseaticso it should also store some fotos, and record / copy data given from met friends
21:05:32BigBambihanseatic: You won't get that with rockbox, but most units will duual boot
21:05:47n1shanseatic: well if you really need the usb host thing iriver h300 or iaudio x5 with unofficial patch is probably the way to go
21:05:48BigBambiFor what you want I strngly recommend the iriver H300
21:06:06 Quit matmat07 ()
21:06:09hanseatici understand, well the copying part wont be an everyday thing, but it should be possible
21:06:12BigBambin1s: Doesn't the X5 need cradle for line in?
21:06:48n1sBigBambi: possibly it needs the "subpack" thingy, not sure
21:06:57BigBambihanseatic: The H300 officially dual boots, you would need an unofficial patch to do that on the X5 (and as I say I think you need the subpack for line in)
21:07:08BigBambin1s: That's what I thought
21:07:22BigBambiBut I'm not certain
21:09:05n1syep, line in requires the subpack
21:09:11***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
21:09:26BigBambiWhat about the usb host?
21:09:43BigBambin1s: Do we have a wiki page for this or are you googling?
21:09:50n1sBigBambi: usb host doesn't however it requires an adapter similar to the h300

21:12:11hanseaticnope... there's only one auction
21:12:24BigBambiThey (and even more the H100) are in big demand as they are excellent recording hardware
21:12:27peturcheck the trade area of MR as well

21:12:47BigBambin1s: Cool
21:12:48hanseaticthing is, the market is full of players
21:12:56LloreanThe x5 only has two gain levels, -20 and 0, if I Recall correctly
21:13:07peturno, that is H10
21:13:17peturbut the gain steps of X5 are big
21:13:36peturso big they make AGC unusable
21:13:45LloreanThat must've been what I was thinking of
21:13:53BigBambiMy general recording order goes H100 > H300 > X5 > the rest
21:14:11BigBambiBut that isn't really through experience, just what I seem to have picked up
21:14:15hanseatici see, well i am a professional sound recordist, for filmproduction, but the device will be for my girlfriend, who wants to record stuff from MCs, yes music casettes they use there

21:16:25petur... or using it for recording

23:16:00pixelmaeasiest would be to turn your player off before connecting, on USB plug it will load the Original Firmware and you can use it to copy files over
23:18:37webguest31woooooooooooow pixelma - it worked. thank you i love you ;) *g*
23:19:50webguest31advcomp you rule, too

23:23:59kugelguys, I have a question
23:24:05kugellicensing stuff
23:24:20 Join barrywardell [0] (
23:24:24kugelas you might know, I offer my custom build to download
23:24:39kugelcan I include a font, that's not GPL'd?
23:25:32LloreanFonts don't have to be GPL licensed if they're not compiled in. They just need to be licensed in a way that allows you to distribute.
23:25:44kugelOk, thanks
23:25:46LloreanYou ARE keeping a full copy of the source for each of your builds in case someone requests it, right?
23:26:16kugelnot the full copy
23:26:21kugeljust the diff
23:26:23LloreanYou're required to by the GPL.
23:26:41kugelbut if someone asks for it, and he needs the full source, I will give it to him
23:26:51LloreanHow can you do that if you're not archiving a copy of it?
23:26:59LloreanYou need to be able to give it to him, even if our site is no longer available.
23:27:03kugelI have a copy of the source
23:27:29LloreanA copy that's kept at the same version as the binary you're making available for download?
23:27:38kugelyes of course
23:28:25kugelI build my build of that source code, and I don't delete it after compiling, so I guess I have a copy of the source

23:30:10kugelI meant, I offer the diff to be downloaded directly
23:30:21kugelfor the full source the one needs to ask me
23:30:51LloreanJust making sure you're compliant.
23:31:02LloreanWe've had a few unsupported build authors who don't keep their source around.
23:31:14kugelI wouldn't ask if I wouldn't care about licensing
23:32:18kugelbtw: is there a way to make svn diff include files with were added by a patch?
23:33:34pixelmayou need to "svn add" the files before
23:34:14pixelmamaking the diff I mean
23:34:52kugelSo, I need to do something like "svn add <(?) apps/plugins/dict2.c"
23:35:14pixelmawithout the <
23:35:21kugelok cool, thank you

23:44:46PaulJamwould you still have to provide the source even if you don't offer the binary anymore? if yes, how long would you have to provide the source after stoppiing to offer the binary?

23:52:01PaulJamthanks, i'll look.
23:58:21rasherPaulJam: well, just add a written offer, and you only have to deal with anyone who emails you, which should be effectively no one
