#rockbox log for 2007-12-08

00:00:18preglowwhat's the framerate on a g5?
00:00:28preglowit's quite snappy at 50++ on nano
00:01:38linuxstbI've only tried on the gigabeat - around 90-100fps
00:01:59Nico_PI think it's around 20 fps on the G5
00:02:06preglowlinuxstb: you have both gigabeat f and s? :>
00:02:17linuxstbYes ;)
00:02:19preglowNico_P: looks like it can be optimized more
00:02:43linuxstbEnough for the Archos with greyscale lib? ;)
00:02:54Nico_Ppreglow: yeah, jott was syaing that too... I think the original writer has a few improvements in store

00:20:40advcomp2019webguest48, what firmware version do you have

00:21:57webguest48okay. am I correct in interpreting that I can play flac truly gapless on a rockboxed sansa e280?
00:23:55bertrikI have not much experience with the flac codec, but generally: yes does gapless playback
00:23:59webguest48advcomp2019: I haven't got the player yet, so I don't have any firmware at all :)
00:24:26advcomp2019webguest48, o ok
00:24:56webguest48do you know how to identify a sansa e280 v1 from a e280 v2 (as rockbox is supported on v1 and not on v2)?
00:25:13bertrikrockbox has a buffering mechanism which decodes the next track to be played in advance
00:25:31advcomp2019webguest48, the easiest way is with the firmware
00:25:57webguest48I am looking to buy from a webshop and their e280 has a manufacturer id SDMX4-8192-E70. is this v1 or v2?
00:26:05n1sor looknig for "v2" printed on the back...
00:26:27webguest48okay. so I need to buy the player before I know?

01:04:36webguest48oh. one last question: will a sansa e200 work as a usb mass storage device (ie. i don't have to install any specific software to get my files onto the device: just drag'n'drop the flac files onto the device once it is hooked up to a usb port)?
01:05:39jottfor which parts of the tagcache api, it is reasonable, to make them accessible in the plugin api? i currently only use ..._search, _search_set_uniqbuf, _get_next and _search_finished, but made every method in tagcache.h "public" (which seems too much to me)
01:07:16linuxstbThe general principle is to add functions to the plugin api as and when they're used by plugins.
01:07:22webguest48linuxstb: was that "yes" relating to my question about sansa e200 acting as a usb mass storage device?
01:07:36linuxstbwebguest48: Yes.
01:08:21webguest48linuxstb: thanks :)
01:08:28|NSA|webguest48: you need to reboot into the original firmware though i think
01:09:01jottlinuxstb: so just add those 4 methods i use to it?

02:06:00linuxstbYes, it does - that page describes how to encode videos.
02:06:09linuxstb(including a link to winff)
02:06:25preglowhrm, now that we have a text based config format, we have the additional bother that we can't invalidate settings when we change their format :/
02:07:04linuxstbI've been thinking about that. You could change the name of the setting...
02:08:38lemurso rockbox is pretty much the best OS ever
02:08:39preglowi really want to fix the crossfeed settings being positive when they should be negative
02:08:44 Quit tchan (Remote closed the connection)
02:08:45preglowand get rid of a few db formatters in the process
02:09:08preglowbut everyone will end up with completely wrong crossfeed settings and no warning
02:09:14amiconnpreglow: Well, if the settings are range-checked, there should be no problem
02:09:25preglowamiconn: there is, all crossfeed settings end up at 0 db
02:09:38preglowwhile this is no biggie, it will be confusing for some people
02:09:39amiconnOut of range -> default
02:09:54preglowamiconn: really? i just did a test, all settings ended up at 0 db

02:12:17^^^ADAM^^^or after i convert using winff.. where do i put the file... rite in the ipod home directory or do i make a new dir called movies or videos.. /
02:12:18preglowit's not implemented per setting?
02:12:23amiconnpreglow: I don't know
02:12:44amiconnI said _if_ they are range checked, not _as_ they are range-checked
02:12:56preglowright, right
02:13:11preglowwell, what do you think? should they be reset to default when out of bounds?
02:13:13amiconnFor instance, backlight is not range checked other than for the low limit (in the backlight driver)
02:13:16preglowdoesn't sound too silly to me
02:14:04amiconnSo you can set a longer timeout than the GUI allows via .cfg file, but if you then enter the setting in the GUI, it's limited to the upper limit
02:14:18 Join jeremywc [0] (
02:16:27amiconnIt seems the settings GUI does range-checking for numeric settings, applying clamping instead of reverting to default
02:16:52preglowwell, what is the more logical behaviour?
02:16:54amiconnBut loading the .cfg does no range-checking itself
02:17:16 Quit Soap (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
02:17:43preglowbut does the settings stuff go through the layer that clamps at all, or does config loading call the set_ functions directly?

02:18:03 Quit ^^^ADAM^^^ ()
02:18:35amiconnThe latter.
02:19:37preglowso it calls the crossfeed setters with a big positive gain

02:19:41preglowwell, they seem to handle it ok...
02:19:51preglowsounds crap, but doesn't explode
02:20:31amiconnThe crossfeed set_ functions don't check themselves?
02:21:23preglowi saw no reason for them to check
02:21:41preglowi knew gui settings clipped, and i assumed settings loading did too
02:21:45preglowat the time it was binary anyway
02:22:25amiconnAtm it does not, and it also didn't in binsettings time iirc
02:22:37preglowno, but then you couldn't go very far out of range
02:22:46preglowand in crossfeeds case, you could only go more negative, and that didn't matter
02:23:13amiconnPerhaps it would be good if cfg loading would clamp too
02:23:22preglowi kinda of think it should
02:23:39preglowit would save us from having to clamp all over the place
02:23:41 Part pixelma
02:24:28preglowseems i save 200 bytes on arm from removing two formatters
02:24:49amiconnIt depends. Calling the set_* functions directly from a plugin could still put them out of range
02:25:14amiconnNot very likely for crossfeed settings though

03:51:45Mouser_XProblem with USB stuff, is that you need a device that can do USB hosting.
03:51:54|NSA|i wish it did have usb support so i dont have to keep rebotting it to browse files
03:52:02Mouser_XMost of the Rockbox targets are not capable of this, if I'm not mistaken.

03:52:29AK-47with sansapatcher

03:52:53AK-47I see....
03:52:59Mouser_XUSB support != USB host
03:53:17AK-47You should put linux on rockbox to make apache work!

06:13:09psycho_maniacso i couldnt just increase the "battery capacity" ?
06:13:38LloreanYou can always just set it to some arbitrary number that makes it estimate a time remaining that is near what you get.

09:59:18LloreanI think there may be a bug with the volume adjustment then
09:59:32LloreanMinor, but noticeable, installing a current build to test, since it's in 12/01 at least

10:00:19markunwhat kind of bug?
10:00:36LloreanAlright ,still there
10:00:48LloreanIf you hold down vol up or down, sometimes only one channel changes while the other stays the same.
10:01:12LloreanThen, after a second or two, the other channel will pop to the same level as the one that was actually changing, sometimes with a slight click
10:01:29markunthat's strange
10:02:31LloreanThe left and right channel never stay at separate levels, as far as I can tell, but they'll be there temporarily while the volume is changing. And it's a significant amount different, as much as 10-15db can go by before they pop back into sync

14:24:24stripwaxhanseatic - when you extract there should be no files in the root. delete them all and start over
14:25:31stripwaxwhen you extract, your extracting program should use the right folders (or you need to tell it to make them). When it's extracted, if it worked correctly, you should just end up with a .rockbox folder in the root, and then everything in folders inside of that
14:26:17stripwaxJ-23 - maybe, none of the rockbox developers actually have a sansa m series? it's more or less impossible to support rockbox for a player that the developers don't actually have

17:53:00hanseaticiirc there is some hardware issue that makes it impossible
17:53:25percentI know it's a completely new hardware. Oh, and by the way, I have access to an oscilloscope, which might help if the firmware is encrypted.
17:53:35percentWhat's the issue?
17:54:29bertriknot impossible, just a lot of work i think
17:54:31hanseaticdon't remember, only stuff i think i saw googeling for e280
17:54:31Mouser_XThe issue is that it's all new hardware. For a port to be made, they need to know what the hardware is, and how to handle it.
17:54:48bertriki read that some rockbox members already have a datasheet of the main controller
17:54:49Mouser_XThe "how to handle it" is the hard part.
17:55:43hanseaticwikipedia reverse engeneering

17:56:46percentI only know x86 asm, and I think I'm correct in assuming that the e280 has an ARM processor?

17:58:08Mouser_XYou can look on the Rockbox wiki. There's a page for the e200v2.

17:59:09hanseaticone issue is, that i can't delete my trashbox, which should not be this complicated
17:59:42krazykithanseatic, that sounds more like an OS issue, to be honest. try running fsck.
18:00:30Mouser_Xhanseatic: While not necessarily the desired method, is reformatting your player an option? Or is there data on there that you don't have somewhere else?
18:01:19hanseaticfsck.vfat /etc/sda1 ...
18:01:34percentwow, this stuff is really useful
18:01:38krazykithanseatic, you may need to do that with root permissions
18:01:39percentthanks, Mouser_X
18:01:49hanseaticthere are differences between boot sector and its backup
18:02:18krazykithanseatic, what device are you using?
18:02:25hanseatici chose to take no action
18:02:39hanseatice280 (v1)
18:02:52krazykitif there are filesystem errors, let fsck fix them. you can't do anything that will permanently disable your device.
18:03:02hanseaticFAT differs but appears to be intact
18:03:15hanseaticuse first fat or second?
18:03:32krazykitflip a coin.
18:04:24krazykithanseatic, really, if there are FAT errors, i recommend going into recovery mode and making an empty file called "sansa.fmt". this will remake the partitions and you can then reload music to your player.
18:04:29*bertrik takes heads
18:04:39hanseatici thought of using the recovery mode, but the sandisk recovery tool for windows said that would kill free subscription to some music download site, and the samples that where shipped with the device.... and i suppose also the warranty
18:05:27krazykithanseatic, it shouldn't affect the warranty, and do you really want a subscription to some music site if you're planning on using rockbox?
18:05:51hanseatici have no fat error experience
18:07:49hanseaticthing is, it's my girlfriends, and i have a couple of weeks until she needs the device for a long jouney, so i check out if rockbox is somehow useful for her (im getting a little of topic here, sorry ;o))
18:08:40hanseatichowever i still want to be able to get the thing into shipping conditions
18:09:26krazykitoh, certainly. it's actually very easy to get it back into factory condition.
18:10:42hanseaticshipping as it was cond ;o)
18:11:18krazykityou go to recovery mode and drop in an mi4

22:53:35 Quit Arathis ("Bye, bye")
22:55:41Zero_ChaosBagder: yeah, I saw your page talking about a few of the differences between v1 and v2 for sansa e280; I was wondering, either one stand out as better hardware (despite incomplete support for v2)
22:56:48BagderZero_Chaos: I don't know as I haven't seen nor touched any of the v2s in real life and I don't think they've been around long enough to be proven hw-wise.
22:57:17Zero_ChaosBagder: spec wise perhaps? less ram, more ram, faster clock. ?
22:57:34BagderI think the main differences seem to be flash size and lcd
22:57:55Bagderwe don't know much about ram sizes yet
22:58:00Bagdernor clock
22:58:04Zero_ChaosBagder: flash size, ie the e280v1 and the e280v2 have different amount of flash?
22:58:22Bagderah you mean between v1 and v2
22:58:28Zero_ChaosBagder: yeah
22:58:52Bagderthen the basic diff is the SoC which is a (up to) 250MHz ARM9 in the v2 but a dual 100MHz core in the v1
22:59:06spasticteapotWhat music programs do people here use? Amarok? XMMS? Rythmbox? Exaile?
22:59:12Bagderwhich gives the v2 more horse power used easier
22:59:19Bagderand we have docs for it

23:01:55Zero_Chaosdesowin: from what I hear it sucks major ass but is not "unuseable" if I just wanted to listen to some music on the plane. And I have little issue testing alpha code as long as I have a low danger of bricking the device.
23:02:27pixelmadak0ta: usually the database only gets stuck on errors in the tags, did you try with another file?

23:18:33pixelmaah Llorean, just wanted to ask you about how to proceed with attached patches or plugins... do you usually just delete them?
23:18:46spasticteapotIt worked before I installed Rockbox.....for a very limited definition of "worked".
23:19:26spasticteapotApparently, to get an mp3 player to work with playlists, I will have to scribe them on stone tablets, take them to the temple mount, and grind them up with the entrails of no less than three lemurs.
23:20:09Mouser_XPlaylists work fine in Rockbox. You just need to know how to convert them, if they're not in M3U format.
23:20:13dak0taOk, the properties of one of my tested files shows this: ID3v2.3 (ID3v1 ID3v2.3)
23:20:37Mouser_XI've used Winamp to create playlists for Rockbox.
23:20:38spasticteapotProblem is, no drag-and-drop.
23:20:50spasticteapotIt's write-only now.
23:21:05Mouser_XShouldn't be. It sounds like there's a problem.
23:21:20spasticteapotI'm pretty sure there is.

23:22:12dak0tathat's what i thought....hence my confusion. :)
23:22:26|NSA|its not possible to edit playlists from within rockbox?
23:22:46Mouser_X|NSA|: Sure it is. You'd need to open it in the text_editor plugin though.
23:23:08Mouser_X(Which can be a slight pain...)
23:23:39Lloreanpixelma: Well, in that case, I'm almost positive that what that .C is is more a demonstration, than a patch submitted for inclusion, or even a patch that does what the user wanted. So I kinda left it as I think it's more "here's some sample code" (which could't been done in a [code][/code] block) than a patch
23:23:51spasticteapotWell, even under root, I STILL can't put anything on the rockbox.
23:23:59LloreanMouser_X: What's wrong with the playlist editor?
23:24:04|NSA|Mouser_X: how? i cant find a "file open" in the text editor plugin
23:24:13spasticteapotI think it's bricked.
23:24:16amiconnMouser_X: Eh? There are more comfortable methods than the text editor...
23:24:19|NSA|and opening it from files just plays the songs
23:24:38Mouser_XI was refering to editing a non-active playlist. If there's other means, then I didn't know of them.
23:24:56Mouser_X(Active being the one you're currently listening to.)
23:24:57|NSA|amiconn: how?
23:25:00Llorean|NSA|: Yes, and then pause, and go to the playlist viewer.
23:25:11pixelmaLlorean: ah, thanks. Next time I'll be able to react quicker :)
23:25:36|NSA|yeah but how do i edit them, how can i for example remove an item?
23:25:53Llorean|NSA|: Use the context menu on an entry in the playlist viewer.
23:26:00LloreanThe manual might refer to it as the "File Menu"
23:26:32spasticteapotLlorean: Any chance you know why I can't access my mp3 player?
23:27:26Lloreanspasticteapot: What original firmware version?
23:27:32|NSA|Llorean: how do i access the context menu on a c200 sansa, i just ranomly press buttons and sometimes it comes up. but i dont know how i get it tocome up
23:27:38spasticteapotI downgraded it first....
23:28:09spasticteapotFor what it's worth, it's the one on your website it told me to downgrade to.
23:28:11|NSA|hmm, it seems to be the combo "select" + down
23:28:18Mouser_XIn some instances, using the text_editor plugin is better than the playlist editor. For example, I wanted to remove a very large segment of the playlist. In the PL editor, I would have had to do a long select, then remove, many times. In the text_editor, I simply selected a line, then cut it. Select the next line, cut it, and keep doing that. It was much faster, and I didn't need to worry about accidently playing the selected file.
23:28:20Llorean|NSA|: Is it not in the manual yet?
23:29:01Lloreanspasticteapot: I've noticed some difficulty with my c200 too, and it's a problem with the OF as it's their USB mode. I don't know how to fix it yet.
