#rockbox log for 2007-12-07

00:00:09amiconnImho we should not support drm, independent of any license or technical problems
00:00:34 Join J3TC- [0] (
00:02:11dan_aMy feeling would be that it might not be a bad thing to have a stable codec API once there is a new stable version of Rockbox. If it's technically and legally possible, I think we should allow people to listen to the music in the format that they choose. I don't have particularly strong views on the subject, though.
00:03:06 Part przemhb
00:04:53*amiconn is in strong favour of rockbox going gpl v3, if that is possible
00:04:58scorche|wBagder: do you think logbot's feelings will get hurt if i make another bot for the channel?
00:05:33Bagderyes, he will come after you with a very large pitchfork. and make your nick light yellow in the log page!
00:06:08n1snooo, not the light (unreadable) yellow!!
00:07:16n1samiconn: did we ever come to a conclusion if we are "or later" or not?
00:07:33 Quit midkay ("Leaving")
00:08:43amiconnNot that I know of :(
00:09:44scorche|wBagder: planned features include an enhanced seen script, !commonissuehere to prevent people from typing responses over and over again (such as irc guidelines, RTFM, broken themes, incompatible version, .rockbox, etc), a message system that will hopefully cut down on "ping: xxxx" and "for the logs...", learning/modifying/searching factoids, etc this desired/worth my time?
00:10:09preglowplease no...
00:10:13Bagderdancer (logbot) has all those already
00:10:16preglowi hate it when bots become a strong presence in a channel...
00:10:40scorche|wBagder: heh...can i modify him then? =P
00:10:56amiconnscorche: Why yet another message system?
00:11:03amiconnfreenode already has one itself
00:11:27scorche|wone that is actually useful and used
00:11:54amiconnI can't see how another system would be more useful
00:11:58scorche|wsuch as "bot: tell xxx to kick the build servers", then when that person next speaks, it relays the message as it knows they are there
00:12:21scorche|wor "xxxx: for the logs, yyyyy"
00:12:48amiconnThe message system does its job - but in almost all occasions of 'ping', I don't want asynchronous communication, that's why I don't use it
00:13:03scorche|wand "for the logs..." ?
00:15:17amiconnAnd the (for the logs) lines have an advantage over messages too - others are able to follow the communication, even months later thanks to the logs
00:15:41pixelmaI doubt I would use these premade common issue answers, even though this sounds handy but the situation is always so slightly different...
00:16:33*amiconn still misses the 'describe' feature logbot once had ;\
00:16:39preglowand there's nothing cooler than being met by a bot...
00:16:52scorche|wpixelma: i can think of several common questions that rarely have variation...such as broken themes, where can i put my music, etc
00:17:16amiconnHow fast can you type 'rtfm'?
00:17:37*amiconn actually considered just typing those letters several times
00:18:24pixelmascorche: but it's also a question of my impression of the person
00:18:39scorche|wamiconn: ah, but that can be rude...also, a bot tends to be able to get away with being much more blunt than a person usually can
00:18:48pixelmahow I would answer him/her, I mean
00:19:37preglowi can even type "read the manual" quite quickly
00:20:39Lloreanscorche|w: Yes, but that just transfers the rudeness to whoever manually triggered the bot.

00:27:49dan_aLlorean: Not necessarily. When I first started using Rockbox, there were a lot of people who didn't know that the Database feature existed. It wasn't possible to do a sensible search through the documentation because until you knew about it you didn't know what it was called. I wouldn't think that triggering a bot to point someone towards helpful information in the manual was rude.

01:43:07RamlaHey hum. I've got an iriver h340, installed rockbox a few hours ago. I like the whole deal a lot except for just one thing compared to the official firmware
01:43:21Ramlai mean the playlist system.
01:44:35mud-rbwhat don't you like about it?
01:44:49Ramlarockbox's system is just how i use playlists when i listen to music on my computer
01:45:06Ramlabut with the player's controls it just doesn't work for me
01:46:01mud-rbi'm not sure i get your meaning, but if you think you have a better way, feel free to describe it fully in a feature request (on the web page), or better yet, make a patch
01:47:05Ramlais there a way to have all my files in one playlist, but so that i could navigate in it with either the file browser or database browser?
01:48:04mud-rbi'm not sure exactly what that would mean. you already can view all of the music with the file viewer or database view...
01:49:24Ramlai just don't find it smooth somehow. i did manage to turn repeat off so it can now jump to the next folder, which is improvement
01:51:41Ramlai also used to jump between normal play and shuffle all on the original firmware
01:51:58pixelmayou have a few possibilities - make one big playlist of all your music and use "view playlist", you can turn "auto-change directory" on, I think there are some more. Did you have a look into the manual?
01:52:19Ramlayes, i've read chapter 4.4 :)
01:52:45mud-rbRamla: you can turn shuffle on and off in the context menu of the while playing screen
01:52:53 Join Xerion [0] (
01:54:23Ramlamud-rb: mm, do you mean c-menu/playlist/reshuffle?
01:55:44mud-rbRamla: i don't know the name of the buttons out of the manual, but on mine while you're at the WPS screen you hold "menu" and a screen comes up that allows you to turn shuffle on and off (along wiht a couple of other options i never use)
01:55:57mud-rbthe manual explains it better i'm sure
01:57:18Ramlais this a new feature? i'm using current build, not a daily one
01:58:23mud-rbunless you're using the "release" version, which i think is only for one type of player and is really really old, you're using a version that's built after every SVN commit
01:58:25amiconnThe quickscreen is an ooold feature
01:58:33amiconnIt's been there for years
01:58:47Ramlathere is no release version for iriver h300 series
01:59:14Ramlaalso, the manual's chapter 'the wps context menu' doesn't list anything about shuffle
01:59:47amiconnThe quickscreen is not the context menu
01:59:47Ramlamy menu has sound settings, playlist, playlist catalog, bookmarks, show track info, delete, pitch, graphical eq, browse eq presets
01:59:52mud-rbsorry, it's a different menu than the actual context menu, i just never knew what it was called
02:01:30Ramlaok, i see :)

02:08:31mud-rbyou can search in playlists i suppose, but the keyboard tends to be slow
02:08:38amiconnEver tried buttonrepeat?
02:09:11amiconnJust hold the button(s) for the desired direction...
02:09:32Ramlaamiconn: would be nice, but it seems my player runs out of juice with the fast scrolling :p
02:10:16Ramlanot in the file browser, just when scrolling the playlist
02:12:49amiconnOut of juice? How?
02:13:06*amiconn never uses the playlist viewer during normal usage
02:13:17mud-rbyeah, me neither...
02:13:24Ramlaall processing power seems to go to the scrolling, music playback pauses
02:13:43Ramlahow do you navigate in huge playlists?
02:14:06mud-rbi never use huge playlists...i just choose an artist i want usually and let it shuffle
02:15:21amiconnI don't
02:15:23 Part toffe82
02:15:40amiconnI mostly play albums, selecting one album at a time
02:16:03amiconnSometimes I play 'various tracks' folders, shuffled
02:16:15mud-rbi guess a file type view of playlists might be useful if you have huge ones, not sure how hard it would be to add.
02:16:56mud-rbthere would probably be a lot of annoyances with it, especially if the player has trouble scrolling without the music pausing/skipping/whatever
02:18:07pixelmaI usually also play a folder (album or various tracks) or "click" a playlist of a few of them together - most of the time less then 100 tracks in one playlist

02:27:51mud-rbif you really switch between them enough that the quickscreen or whatever isn't fast enough, you could /probably/ make a change to the WPS and have it toggle
02:28:58Ramlaquickscreen would be good enough, but because in normal play i want to browse for the next file/album with the file browser, it means each time i would like to shuffle all, i'd need to load the playlist containing all.

04:36:15safetydanI've no idea
04:36:51safetydanyou can get the checksum message when you're using the wrong build for your target or the file is corrupt somehow (i.e. bad copy, bad unzip, filesystem issues)
04:40:28safetydanzoexii: the boot loader should also print out a model name. What does it say in your case?
04:41:18zoexiiis the model number.

09:25:59mrkikoLinusN: the H3xx boot-loader is not acting as described on the manual, so it may be fixed. The manual says the boot-loader will boot the OF if .rockbox is missing. The boot-loader, if .rockbox misses, actually will not boot the player, telling you no fw has benn found. Pressin play+rec will boot successfully the OF, aniway.

09:32:24peturLinusN: I saw on,95239.0.html that somebody swapped the HDD in his h120 with a CF card, but his initial attempt failed, with another card it worked. Any ideas on why? Does CF speed matter (timing constraints) and are those in the controller or the firmware?
09:32:32LinusNby looking at the code, it looks like detect_original_firmware() works like it should
09:33:38LinusNpetur: timing might very well be the problem (which can be changed by software), but also the device reset
09:33:54mrkikoLinusN: aniway the problem is simple to reproduce. G on the directory browser, remove .rockbox, then shutdown the player and thenup again...
09:33:55LinusNCF cards can be sensitive to device reset

09:35:00listerGodEater: hello. In one of your posts on the forums you said that RB on iRiver never crashes. Waht build do you use? Pre or post MOB?
09:35:07LinusNmrkiko: there is another issue here: the original firmware checks the ON button when it starts, so it may very well be that the bootloader restarts the original firmware, but it turns off immediately because the ON button isn't pressed

09:55:00GodEater_same thoughts ?
09:55:13listerGodEater: same build
09:55:22listerGodEater: i.e. pre MOB
09:55:39GodEater_I don't expect post-MoB to be any worse though
09:55:44GodEater_I just haven't got round to upgrading"> <−− my secret santa gift from my colleagues. Bless 'em.
09:57:09listerbtw: has the issue with "playback got confused at the end of the track" been resolved with MOB? I.e. if you jump to the start of the song while in the last two seconds of the song?
09:57:26LinusNi don't think it is completely solved
09:59:28listerLinusN: is it a general playback engine flaw? I.e. how the playback engine interacts with codecs?
09:59:39LinusNlister: kind of
10:00:11LinusNthe playback buffering engine switches to the next track before the codec has played the last data from the current one
10:00:53LinusNso when you jump to the start, there is some confusion regarding which track it is playing
10:01:43listerLinusN: but I've seen (or believe so) that some extra state vars were added for separately tracking the pcm playback and codec position. Am I mistaken?
10:02:39GodEater_just because the variables are there, doesn't mean we're using them right yet ;)
10:02:56listerGodEater: good point! :-)
10:03:03markunGodEater_: was that you in that movie?
10:03:09GodEater_markun: nope
10:03:15GodEater_that was my "secret" santa :)
10:05:08LinusNlister: there was an attempt to fix this issue, but i believe that there still is a problem
10:06:21listerLinusN: so the playback engine still waits for an overhaul?
10:06:34LinusNnot an overhaul, but a fix
10:08:55GodEater_I thought the plan was to completely re-write the playback engine at some point ?
10:08:58listerThere were some talks about playback again getting too tricky (after it has been simplified some time ago)
10:13:51LinusNyes, that happens over and over
10:13:55 Quit sdcarter ("See Ya!")
10:14:15LinusNthe problem is that we have so many requirements that create special cases
10:14:35LinusNlike crossfade, for instance
10:15:24LinusNcrossfade is an excellent example when it comes to track change; when has it changed track?
10:15:46LinusNwhen it starts to fade, in the middle of the fade, or when the previous track has faded out?
10:15:56LinusNthose things make the playback complicated
10:24:44 Join Cirque [0] (
10:29:04listerLinusN: yes, those are the questions! About fade: I'd say the track has changed when the "weight" of the new track is higher than the weight of the old track. But I could also live with "when the old track has faded out". Since I actually never use crossfade :-)
10:29:45 Join CaptainSquid [0] (
10:30:02LinusNthat is only one example of how complicated it can get
10:30:27LinusNthe next is the buffering requirements; we want as little disk access as possible
10:31:01LinusNbut we still want to buffer huge amounts to reduce lag when skipping etc
10:31:15LinusNand not load the same track twice
10:31:18LinusNetc etc
10:31:40LinusNand then we want to mix that with voice playback
10:33:14LinusNand low latency dsp effects, like eq and crossfeed
10:33:44LinusNand then comes the additional complexity of handling multiple codecs and metadata
10:33:48listerYes, some things are just complicated. I wouldn't say the code is too complicated for a rather simple thing since the thing itself is rather tricky
10:34:41LinusNthe problem is that many of the special cases we have really shouldn't be special
10:35:02CirqueHi everybody. I just bought a docking port for my ipod with speakers etc, and plan on using it as my desktop clock also. Going into plugins > applications > clock every time I change song/redock is very hastly, so is there a way I can either put a link to the clock function on the opening page (where database etc is) or make it appear by default/on a timer somehow?
10:35:03listerHas an attempt been made to draw it all as a state machine? What would be the states? And what would be the state variables (they might vary for different states)?
10:35:20LinusNlister: not sure if lostlogic did that once
10:36:06listerLinusN: e.g. "normal playback", "playback with crossfade", "playback with voice" etc. There will be many of course
10:36:08LinusNCirque: not without building your own version of rockbox
10:36:17CirqueOh, alright. Thanks =)
10:36:51listerBut then we could have a graph an thus an tool to visually analyse behaviour and (possibly) problems
10:37:02LinusNlister: yes
10:37:22LinusNwe should start with listing all the requirements

11:24:09safetydanSimon_c, yes. This is detailed in the manual.
11:24:14GodEater_I didn't even think we supported speex in ogg - news to me!

11:41:27Simon_cWell, I recently got an ipod nano 3g, but the other half seems to think she should have it, so I'm trying to find something else cheep to replace it for the main thing I use it for which is podcasts. Cheep would be < £50
11:41:37markunSimon_c: might be useful:
11:42:13markunlooks like the c200 is the cheapest option
11:42:31markunbut version 2 of those players is not yet supported by rockbox
11:42:33pixelmathe c200 is probably even cheaper (and smaller) than the e200, just pay attention to not get a "v2"

12:53:21Nico_Pit's a pity that they can't GPL the AAC decoder for silly patent reasons

12:54:31markunwhich view?
12:54:32Nico_Pwhy? they've GPL'd AAC code?

13:18:16Nico_Pof course, we'd like to use the existing AA bitmaps
13:18:56linuxstbDoesn't that take a long time to load?
13:20:28 Quit B4gder ("It is time to say moo")
13:20:38linuxstbWhat about trying to incorporate them into the database, and create a single database file with all bmps in it (which obviously wouldn't be loaded to RAM) ?
13:20:54linuxstbIIUC, Apple put album-art in their database.
13:21:15Nico_Pthe bitmaps are loaded in background by a worker thread
13:21:40Nico_Pyeah I wanted to tie AA into the database, but I hadn't though of storing it as a single file
13:21:53Nico_PI was thinking of storing the AA path for each album
13:22:42linuxstbDon't you just need to store the type of filename match - "cover.bmp in same folder", "trackname.bmp", "album name.bmp" etc?

13:23:51Nico_PI'm not sure... I doubt any kind of path info is stored with a DB album

13:24:05linuxstbIt must store the track filenames.
13:24:46Nico_Pyeah, but we'd like to associate a pic with an album
13:24:52linuxstbBut Rockbox's album-art isn't based on albums - each track can potentially have its own art.
13:25:54Nico_Pyeah I know... I was thinking of trying to associate an AA to each album where possible
13:26:10Nico_Pit could also allow a nice album list in the database manus
13:26:53linuxstbWouldn't you want to browse all cover artwork, and then when you select an image, you play all tracks associated to that image?
13:27:50Nico_Pyes, that's pretty much what we'd want
13:28:16Nico_Pthough it would also be nice to display a bit of metadata along with the art
13:28:21linuxstbSo yes, I think that would mean storing the bmp filename in the database.

16:33:26Crash91hanseatic: To recognize a v2 of these devices, carefully look for the “v2? text on the backside or for “ support” on the box.
16:33:33hanseaticis there a way to tell, if it has a radio tuner?
16:33:34preglowjhMikeS:, the unmarked ones are 8 bit, the other ones are 4 bit. as you can hear, the lipshitz one clips a bit in the 4 bit case
16:33:45Crash91ok that check out, you have the lastest firmware and its a v1

16:35:09*jhMikeS will listen to the examples
16:35:14preglowjhMikeS: and this is quite high, but 8 bits and 4 bits are hardly realistic...
16:35:45jhMikeSyou're dithering to 8 and 4
16:36:19hanseatic@crash k..
16:36:35preglowi haven't got a chance in hell to hear the difference at 16 bits, and i like to hear a pronounced effect
16:36:40jhMikeSI don't think I've ever knowingly listened to 4-bit audio depth before
16:37:12hanseaticis there a way finding out about radio tuner hardware in it, without voiding the warranty?
16:37:50Crash91hanaseatic: yes, there wil;be a radio option in the menu, and if it plays, it has the hardware
16:38:52preglowjhMikeS: i do that all the time :)
16:39:09preglowjhMikeS: you get quite nice dynamic range at lower freqs qith this noise shaper, even at 4 bits
16:39:17jhMikeSpreglow: I have your earilier 8-bit demo and I can say the FIR filter is much, much better sounding
16:39:32preglowyeah, i agree completely
16:39:45preglowand at lower bit depths, it'll be even better
16:39:57preglowso i think i'll try to hack in support for this bugger
16:40:08hanseaticCrash1: it doesn's say anything about radio in the main menu, are you shure on that?
16:40:09jhMikeSthe audibility of the noise in the current one is might higher for the same depth
16:40:13preglowperhaps add an extra option to dithering: Off, normal, high-quality
16:40:22preglowthen again, that'd add an extra codepath...
16:40:50Crash91hanaseatic: yes im sure, IIRC the RIAA banned the FM in europe
16:40:54jhMikeSyou add another function to the pointer table for outputs
16:41:04preglowjhMikeS: well, another function, then
16:41:11hanseaticCrash: even on the european firmware? the guy i bought it from @ ebay offered a radio "feature" for 10euro extra
16:41:15preglowjhMikeS: to not impact performance we'd have to duplicate the rest of the dithering code
16:41:24hanseaticdon't think he has different models
16:41:31Crash91hanseatic: -.- obviously that was a scam
16:41:58pixelmaCrash91, hanseatic: currently there are models with and without radio available
16:41:59markunCrash91: some sansas only have FM disabled in software iirc
16:42:01Crash91hanseatic: you wasted 10 euro, as you can either have it with radio or without, european onse dont have it
16:42:48Crash91oh didnt realise that pixelma
16:43:01hanseatici obviously did not spend the 10 € since i will be able to switch this feature on myself, if the hardware supports it
16:43:29pixelmaas markun said, you'll find out if you install rockbox (or install an american version of the original firmware - I know of at least 2 cases for the c200)
16:43:33Crash91hanseatic: well, you can downgrade the firmware to see if there is any

18:30:09Bagderyeah, that struck me ;-)
18:30:14Suleetolol ;)
18:30:22Bagdercreate one in the same manner as the existing ones I'd say
18:30:25Suleeto(see? I'm doin! I'm doin! :P )
18:30:45Bagderwhat target btw?
18:31:49SuleetoSansa Express, which has no page. That's the confusion I'm running into, I can't find the "ports" document that apparently contains the list of ports
18:31:53Suleetospeakig of which,
18:32:12Suleetodo you guys want it directly on Ports, or in OtherTargets?
18:32:38Bagder is pretty much all ports
18:33:05Bagderthere's no hierarchy really, just create a page with a suitable name

23:33:20preglowas how the current plugin works
23:33:31XavierGron a sidenote, will a debian compiled binary work okay on ubuntu (sendfirm.c)
23:33:56preglowif a linux binary uses no fancy libs, it should run on most linuxes
23:34:06preglowbut sometimes people can't agree on library naming/versioning
23:34:58XavierGrI will try again upgrading S's binary with the rockbox bootloader, I failed to do so from windows so I will have to try with ubuntu
23:35:15linuxstbsendfirm needs libmtp installed though.
23:35:33XavierGryeah I will ahve that in mind
23:36:21XavierGrlinuxstb: do you have the 30gb or 60gb model?

23:38:52Nico_Pwhere x is a number
23:39:10linuxstbSo cover1, cover2, cover23 etc?
23:39:31linuxstbIs there a limit to the number?
23:39:46linuxstbAnd what size should they be?
23:40:02Nico_Pthey shouldn't be bigger than 100x100
23:40:25preglowNico_P: did you have script for resizing things, you say?
23:40:25Nico_Pand I think no more than 100 pics will be loaded
23:40:36preglowi can't be bothered to find out how imagemagick does stuff again...
23:40:37Nico_Ppreglow: yes, look at the AA wiki page
23:40:45preglowNico_P: leet

23:53:23Nico_Pyeah it's not keeping them all although it could, and there's a delay between each loading for debugging
