#rockbox log for 2007-12-11

00:00:46 Join H10_007quick [0] (
00:01:09H10_007quickDoes anyone know if the Cowon D2 would be a good player to get?
00:01:25LloreanIt doesn't run Rockbox.
00:01:26H10_007quickIs it possible that rockbox will support it in the future?
00:01:41H10_007quickI see that many other cowon devices support rockbox
00:01:53LloreanIt's possible if people buy them and work on it.
00:02:01 Quit faemir (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:02:11H10_007quickI see but do you happen to know if its a good player?
00:02:13pixelmaNico_P, jott: somehow the "Better support for small displays" made it look worse on my c200
00:02:46jottpixelma: in what regard?
00:02:47H10_007quickmy H10 is bricked so...
00:02:48LloreanH10_007quick: Good is very subjective. Do some googling and read about it...
00:03:02H10_007quickfrom droping it one too many times
00:03:17jottpixelma: i tested it in the c200 sim :/
00:03:22krazykitH10_007quick, that isn't "bricked", that's "broken". the terminology is important.
00:03:46H10_007quickok and do you think that anyone would want my "broken" H10 for develepment purposes?
00:03:54H10_007quickI think its just the harddrive
00:03:54 Quit Jon-Kha (Remote closed the connection)
00:04:06LloreanIt's pretty useless at this point unless it's recoverable.
00:04:43H10_007quickMaybe barry has a spare harddrive he could stick in it and then he would have a player
00:04:47H10_007quickI will have to ask him
00:04:48jott...and the nano sim..both looked "good to me"
00:05:06pixelmajott: it even looks "bigger" than before (I think it is the previous and next covers that you see in perspective view) and it doesn't look as smooth as before
00:06:02pixelmathat impression is most visible when there is only the ? cover
00:06:55jottpixelma: the next/prev covers should be 50x50 now on smaller screens..
00:07:29jott(as in LCD_WIDTH < 200 for now)
00:08:00pixelmabut it looks like 100x100 (and I did a full build with a "make clean" before) but I'll try again
00:08:17peturoh fun... building database on my h380 and it just froze :(
00:08:35 Quit H10_007quick ("ChatZilla 0.9.79 [Firefox]")

00:10:55jottpixelma: make sure you rebuild the cache (it's in the settings menu now)
00:12:32pixelmaurgh... that somehow reminds me of windows reboots that magically fix for no reason broken things :\ ...but now that I can enter the menu on c200, I can do that...
00:12:37 Quit robin0800 (" HydraIRC -> <- Would you like to know more?")
00:12:50kugeljust a question, did any user report pf plugin not working while music playing?
00:13:48pixelmajott: and now I can also see the "preparing album artwork" and the progress bar... ;) That fixed it by the way
00:15:16jottkugel: yes it is troublesome atm as the audiobuffer may uses ram pf wants to have :)
00:15:51kugelI have this issue, but I thought it caused by the bmp_resize, so that I didn't bother to report
00:16:13 Quit Clint (Remote closed the connection)
00:17:01kugelis there any workaround for this?
00:17:07pixelmaone of my 5 cover.bmp looks odd in pf because it is almost all black at the borders...
00:20:27pixelmabut I wouldn't want to use pf for everyday browsing because it's slower as you can only see 3 items maximum at once and this only if you have all the art and recognise it, a list does a better job there but isn't that fancy (of course...)
00:20:29kugelso sad, i wanted to try roolkus patch
00:20:37 Join J3TC- [0] (
00:21:03peturhmmm I loaded lots of cover.bmp files on my h380 (100x100, 24bit) but none of them show up. Must try a WPS with AA to see if that works
00:25:07 Quit spiorf (Remote closed the connection)
00:25:31*petur spots a new menu item called rebuild cache :)
00:25:49kugelpixelma: I would use it, if scroll wheel accleration would work
00:26:42peturI have too many albums on my device to make it usable, but it is fun to look at ;)
00:26:49 Join sarixe [0] (
00:27:03kugelit's very usable on itunes imo
00:27:13kugelso, it would be usable for my sansa as well i gues
00:28:21 Quit obo ("bye")
00:28:39Nico_Pkugel: are you aware of the fact that you can't view a big JPEG while music is playing? well it's exactly the same problem here
00:28:42pixelmato me it's not handy enough, just something that looks nice (hence I'm fine with it being a plugin) and to stick out the ongue into apple's direction ;)
00:29:14pixelmaerr... *tongue :P
00:29:38kugelNico_P: what are you refering too?
00:29:55Nico_P[00:12] <kugel> just a question, did any user report pf plugin not working while music playing?
00:30:08peturpreparing album artwork takes ages... - too many albums :)
00:30:21kugelI saw no bug report reporting this
00:30:31Nico_Pbecause it's not a bug
00:30:42kugeloh I think it is
00:31:05jottpetur: have you db in ram and dir cache on? this speeds up everything :)
00:31:09Nico_Pthen what about the jpeg viewer?
00:31:23pixelmaprobably it would be nice if you could chose the album to play through it but what would happen - can I only chose the whole album to listen too (I'm not familiar with the original thing)?
00:31:29kugelBug too
00:31:31Nico_Pkugel: also we know it very well, no need for a bug report
00:31:38 Quit sarixe (Client Quit)
00:31:51kugelJust because it's not fixable atm this doesn't mean it's not a bug for me
00:32:31kugelI never had this issue with the jpeg viewer btw
00:32:45kugelI'm not viewing pictures on my dap
00:33:04Lloreankugel: If things work as WE intend it at the moment, it's not a Bug
00:33:22LloreanA bug is something that's *broken*, not something that works in a way you don't like, but works how we made it work.
00:33:29safetydankugel: the issue is that all the RAM apart from a small part is allocated to playing audio. This is by design an not a bug.
00:33:40kugelThere's absolutely no reason to argue about that now
00:33:46kugelfor me, it's a bug
00:33:51kugelfor you, it's not a bug
00:33:53Lloreankugel: Yes, but for Rockbox it's NOT
00:34:00*jott still wonders if there are any real statistics on battery life increase in relation to buffer used
00:34:01 Join sarixe [0] (
00:34:13Lloreankugel: and you do NOT get to make the decision. You file it as a feature request if it's "Working as we intend it, but not how you want it to be"
00:34:14safetydanjott: no, but it'd be nice to know
00:34:51 Join preet [0] (
00:35:04jotti suppose in some cases it could actually decrease the battery life
00:35:26Nico_Pjott: the main issue is that if you're not using a plugin it's wasted memory
00:35:43Nico_Pbut the new buffering API offers possible solutions
00:35:49safetydanIt would be easy to test I guess. Do a battery bench on a normal build, then do a battery bench on a build with say, half the ram available?
00:35:49jottNico_P: yes..
00:36:23jottsafetydan: yeah this would atleast be one refrence value..
00:36:40Nico_Pkugel: btw, this limitation is mentioned on the wiki page
00:36:49pixelmasafetydan: if you have a 80GB Video this should be easy...
00:36:53kugeloh there's a wiki page now?
00:36:56 Join FunkyELF [0] (
00:37:13 Join dany_21a [0] (n=dan@
00:37:49jotti guess a "real" test would also involve random skip of tracks (which in turn refills the buffer with previously cached stuff that needed hdd access etc.)
00:38:23pixelmahow "real" this test would be depends on your usage pattern
00:38:23jottof course spin up times cost much..
00:38:31jottpixelma: indeed..
00:38:34safetydanpixelma: true, but I don't have an iPod Video :)
00:38:44LloreanLarger buffers are going to hurt people who skip a lot, and help people who listen continuously, it's pretty much just expected.
00:38:57roolkuNico_P: did you see my patch?
00:39:02kugelWhy is the main buffer used? I've read somewhere, that plugins have it's own memory
00:39:11FunkyELFso whats the deal with the battery life when using rockbox on the iPod? I heard the bad battery life is because it is using software to decode mp3 rather than the dedicated hardware on the that true?
00:39:13Nico_Proolku: I saw the tracker entry, but not the patch yet
00:39:15Lloreankugel: And that memory is a lot smaller than the main buffer.
00:39:21pixelmakugel: then you couldn't use it at all
00:39:26LloreanFunkyELF: Not true at all
00:39:29kugelDidn't know that
00:39:58FunkyELFLlorean, is it because it is just not as optimized as the original firmware as far as caching goes?
00:40:06LloreanFunkyELF: The iPod doesn't have dedicated MP3 hardware. Whoever told you that didn't do their research into the actual reasons. It's because we don't have enough hardware information to be sure we're properly disabling things not in use, and otherwise getting the most efficiency out of the hardware.
00:40:07jottLlorean: yes.. that's what i would think too (with the skipping)
00:40:30LloreanFunkyELF: Our caching of audio is actually better than Apples, as is shown by our better runtime on the 1st through 3rd generation iPods.
00:40:42kugelI wonder if the space between the images can be reduced, so that we can see 5 at a time
00:40:42amiconnLlorean: Large buffers would only hurt when skipping *backwards* a lot, or way forward, i.e. outside the buffered stuff
00:41:01FunkyELFLlorean, ah, okay that was going to be my next question about caching
00:41:12FunkyELFLlorean, what kind of things are you talking about disabling?
00:41:14Lloreanamiconn: Most of the people I know who are compulsive skippers listen to less than a minute, then next, then next frequently until they get a "good" song. They just shuffle everything, and skip and hope. =/
00:41:33safetydanFunkyELF: generally disabling hardware we're not using on the iPod.
00:41:44amiconnOdd method.... why don't they just delete the music they don't like?
00:41:58pixelmainteresting in one of the folders there were 2 bmps - and it pf picked the one with the right resolution (it was named albumname.50x50.bmp - the other doesn't have the 50x50 part)
00:41:59LloreanFunkyELF: Don't really know, honestly. Part of the problem is that we aren't 100% sure where whether we're doing everything right, and not doing enough, or whether a few things aren't being done right yet.
00:42:03safetydanamiconn: it's more about mood. Sometimes you don't know what you want to listen to until you hear it.
00:42:08FunkyELFsafetydan, yeah, I wanted a specific example....I know theres a screen and a disk, what else could be shut down?
00:42:20safetydanFunkyELF: if we knew that we could shut it down :)
00:42:30Lloreanamiconn: People are crazy. Maybe just not in the mood, but I don't understand why they don't playlist up what they want to hear instead of treating it like an extremely finite radio with a next button
00:42:46amiconnLlorean: Btw, the "next, next" method should be buffer size indifferent, especially if it's done fast enough that the disk doesn't spin down in between
00:43:08safetydanFunkyELF: but seriously, I'd say it's more to do with parts we've got powered up but not using like say, the recording part of the audio chips in the iPod.
00:43:23Lloreanamiconn: 's always buffer size dependent, yeah. but if they stop long enough for buffering to complete, then they get to trigger another spinup next time they fall in love with the next button.
00:43:23jottamiconn: no it will fill up the buffer as soon as the song starts with probably "unwanted" songs..
00:43:26roolkupixelma: it tries the one with the preferred resolution first and uses it when found, same as wps's another question not related to battery life. I have this problem with the original firmware as well. When I'm at work and it is quiet I put my iPod with my Shure in-ear head-phones and the very first step above mute is too loud. Is there anything I can do without re-encoding the music?
00:44:38pixelmaroolku: yesterday I was told that it wouldn't pick the ones up that had the resolution in the file name - but today changed a lot I guess... :)
00:44:39safetydanFunkyELF: try replaygain and eq precut
00:44:49LloreanThe iPod Video's minimum volume is pretty high. :(
00:44:56*FunkyELF goes and grabs his iPod
00:45:24***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:45:30amiconnFunkyELF: Use different (less sensitive) earphones, or a dap with better volume control ;)
00:45:58roolkupixelma: it uses the same function as the core for wps, so it uses the preferred/specified size. I believe that size was changed from 100x100 to 50x50 with the "improvement for small screens" commit
00:46:32pixelmaspeaking of battery_benches and Ipods - did someone ever see results of runtime tests comparing different brightness settings?
00:46:47*amiconn is annoyed by the pictureflow plugin :(
00:47:04FunkyELFfound precut, where is the replaygain?
00:47:16pixelmawith the current implementation I mean, not the old one that was in a lot of unsupported builds
00:47:20Lloreanamiconn: On its own, or the fact that there's now a bunch of clamoring people saying "I hope this is a new direction for Rockbox"?
00:47:37Nico_Proolku: you got it right ;)
00:47:44peturamiconn: I'm already on the been there, seen it, move on point ;)
00:47:56Lloreanpixelma: The new one is almost certain to offer equal, if not better, improvements to battery life, right?
00:48:01*petur removes database files again...
00:48:39pixelmaLlorean: yes, I would think so but it would be nice to have some numbers ;)
00:48:47amiconnI dislike that this useless gimmick draws so much developer attention away from important things like fixing nasty bugs :(
00:49:15peturor viewports... :P
00:49:28Lloreanpixelma: Numbers are always nice to have, yeah.
00:49:39safetydanFunkyELF: the precut should be sufficient for your needs, but you might want to google Replay Gain and how it will help you.
00:50:36preglowamiconn: people work with what they enjoy, there's not much to be done about that
00:50:51Nico_Pamiconn: I needed a break from playback code... and jott did most of the work. IMO a new contributor with a nice concept should always be welcom
00:51:02*safetydan wonders when the database gets sophisticated enough to integrate something like sqlite :)
00:51:30pixelmapreglow: if Rockbox becomes unusable because of this there will be no joy to work on anything... ;)

00:52:18preethey... maybe I'm just overlooking something, but I was browsing the Rockbox source and I see header files in some files (bootloader/common.c for example), included like #include lcd.h ... but I can't find any 'lcd.h' in the source tree?
00:52:31LloreanNico_P: Should things be accepted just for the sake of garnering attention then? I'm not sure what you're saying.

00:56:18Nico_Pscorche|w: honestly I don't really know but sometimes I get the feeling we might be a little too conservative
00:56:49scorche|wNico_P: do you have any specific examples to offer up to clarify a bit?
00:57:17LloreanWell I think we do come down on "broad" ideas a little hard.
00:57:35LloreanA contributor can get the feeling that if you don't like his "shiny" new ideas, you don't like him.
00:57:40Nico_Pone that comes to my mind is gregj. It's true he wasn't making much real propositions, but IMHO he did make some valid points
00:58:14Nico_Pand he also did try to defend them
00:58:56Nico_Ppreglow: yeah, remember him?
00:59:08Nico_Pmaybe not the best example though
00:59:28preglowno, i don't
00:59:57LloreanWhat was he proposing?

01:01:40pixelmawasn't he proposing some load balancing dual core stuff on portalplayer or something (excuse my non-technical vocabulary here)

01:02:40pixelmaat least I think he mentioned it, not sure if that's what he was proposing - don't remember details
01:03:39LloreanI think there's a fine line in explaining the constraints we expect contributors to try to work within, and discouraging people by sounding like we don't want change.
01:03:55LloreanWord choice can make a pretty big difference to some people, because they assume inflection rather than just reading what you're saying

01:14:54midkaythat's what it looks like from the diff.
01:15:32Nico_Pmidkay: yes, %s|margin| was a bad idea

01:15:55midkayyeah, but it was really useful. what's the problem with it?
01:16:00midkayoh and that works the same?
01:16:04Nico_Pmidkay: yes
01:16:10midkaywhew. okay. fair enough. that was really confusing..
01:16:18LloreanWe didn't remove functionality, we expanded it further by making them indepedent.
01:16:18preglowbut now that we were speaking about releases...
01:16:23preglowi'd really like to see one of those :>
01:16:30midkayyou didn't say you removed %s|margin| in the commit message, nor that %s%m|margin| could be used that way..
01:16:37Nico_Ppreglow: I'd like it too
01:16:38midkaymakes sense now, it was just really unclear to me.
01:17:04Nico_Pmidkay: yeah, the commit message could've been clearer
01:17:13preglowi really think the time is getting better for a release now
01:17:19Nico_Pbut the wiki page explained both the tags independantly
01:17:24Lloreanjott: I don't think there's a specific list. It's more ideals. The core should be KISS where possible, lean when able, don't sacrifice functionality for flash, things like that
01:17:25*amiconn thinks that applies to a lot of commit messages
01:17:43preglowmost features we want are in
01:17:44amiconnThungs like 'fix yellow' aren't really descriptive...
01:17:55Nico_Pjott: "music before the rest" too
01:18:08Lloreanamiconn: Especially since the build table gets rid of the yellow, so you don't have a log of the warning to look back on
01:18:09midkayamiconn: yeah, i can usually figure them out fine.. i think this one was flat-out misleading..
01:18:17midkaybut it's okay..
01:18:18Lloreanjott: Oh, right, "Rockbox is a MUSIC player" is a pretty big goal
01:18:29pixelmaand to me: as multi-platform as possible
01:18:55Lloreanpixelma: and platform independent interface?
01:19:11amiconnpreglow: Imo we're pretty far from releasable state still
01:19:22Lloreanpreglow: I'd say if we could shape up the remaining playback bugs, and put voice through some testing, we'd be pretty close.
01:19:26preglowamiconn: i think bugs are pretty much what is between us and a release
01:19:35amiconnYes, but pretty nasty bugs
01:19:42preglowwell, sure, but that's what a feature freeze is for
01:19:47pixelmaLlorean: maybe it's the night time here, but I can't imagine atm what you mean by that
01:20:18preglowi didn't say i want a relase _now_, i said i'd like it if we were to try entering a release cycle again
01:21:02Lloreanpixelma: Try not to change "the way it works" from player to player. When someone uses a Rockbox gadget, they're using Rockbox, though on a screen and with buttons defined by the hardware.
01:22:11Nico_Pamiconn: I'd really appreciate a bug report in FS for the end of playlist issue
01:22:13amiconnLlorean: There are those spurios crash/freeze bugs (had several occasions both on coldfire and PP502x), the nasty crash bug on PP5002 (okay, we could leave out PP5002 from the first swcodec release), several powermanagement issues, bugs in playback/wps behaviour, plugin button mess...

01:22:36Nico_Pamiconn: for any playback issue that is not the playlist index thing, actually
01:22:44Lloreanpreglow: Well the best way would to arbitrarily pick a date for feature freeze, and start publicizing it now, with the honest hope that as it approaches people start preparing for it.
01:23:04preglowamiconn: i really think we should drop pp altogether
01:23:06 Join aliask [0] (
01:23:16amiconnpreglow: Uh? why that?
01:23:21preglowthe power issues would be one of those bugs that made our previous release attempt futile
01:23:27Lloreanamiconn: I don't think PP fits in the first Swcodec release, or at least PP5022
01:23:36LloreanIf the PP5002 thing can be fixed, I think those are more okay
01:23:49preglowand i don't think we should do a release with such a severe bug
01:24:02amiconnG3 would be okay then... G1/G2 needs working suspend first
01:24:11preglowbtw, how is the gigabeat f port doing? would one be able to call it complete with a straight face?
01:24:23LloreanI don't know if the plugin button mess is relevant to a release though. As long as the plugins work from a user side, how their buttons are mapped internally is irrelevant to a release at least
01:24:29Lloreanpreglow: Easily
01:24:51amiconnI don't think the power issue should stop us from releasing for PP if the port is stable
01:24:51pixelmaLlorean: then yes but only as far as "if button A does x and y on one target, those x and y should be the same button on another target too"
01:24:59Nico_Ppreglow: it lacks RoLo but that's pretty much all
01:25:06Lloreanpreglow: The Gigabeat F port is damn solid. The only OF feature it's missing is USB host afaik, and the only "Rockbox" features it's not got working are ROLO and dual boot, iirc.
01:25:31amiconnDual boot isn't working on the cf iaudios either
01:25:36preglowamiconn: but yeah, i just think pp has too many bugs we can't count on fixing soon, no usb, power, crashing pp5002...
01:26:01preglowNico_P: would rolo be hard to implement?
01:26:13Lloreanpixelma: Yeah. And there are special cases like the Ondio of course. I just meant that the Rockbox shouldn't have more features for some hardware than others, except where hardware limits it. It's one program running on different players, not a different program for each player. :)
01:26:22Lloreanamiconn: there's a patch for that now, isn't there?
01:26:30Nico_Ppreglow: kkujburn seems to says it's not easy
01:26:33Lloreanamiconn: Rather, there's a *new* patch that removes the old "bad" dependency
01:26:38pixelmaamiconn: there still is a "new" patch for the bootloader which says it doesn't rely on OF things anymore, no-one looked into...
01:26:42preglowNico_P: i wonder why it wouldn't be easy
01:27:05amiconnYeah, I heard about the new patch... not really motivated to try it
01:27:26Nico_Ppreglow: ask him... he made a change to the (or something like that) once, to ease implementatio, but the change had to be reverted

01:28:25Nico_Psame here
01:28:42pixelmaI think USB host on the X5 could qualify as a "good reason" though
01:28:47krazykitthe only thing from the gigabeatF OF would be USB-OTG support, but only because it sounds nifty

01:32:02roolkukrazykit: you can't use USB-OTG without the cradle (and external power) so it is pretty useless
01:32:06Lars_Gat least it's not the static OF
01:32:28Lloreanroolku: Did they ever determine that it was impossible even with a dock-port adapter?
01:33:35krazykitroolku, i knew about the cradle, but not about needing external power.
01:33:52handmadematterspictureflow works as expected on H10 (5GB) after database installation and with known bugs
01:34:14pixelmaLlorean: then: yes of course - and the Ondio is pretty much intuitive to operate (IMO). I think XavierGr was it who got an Ondio later and confirmed that too :)
01:34:14amiconnLlorean: I'm not sure about the order in which things happened back in archos-only times even before I discovered rockbox, but afaik the first releases also didn't support all features of the OF (e.g. recording on recorders, or the fm radio on fmrecorders), and there was no dual boot
01:34:22Lars_GOk let's try it out
01:34:26amiconn...and rolo was also invented later afaik
01:34:35roolkuLlorean: not sure
01:34:50zei remember trying one of the 1st releases that did nothing but link an LED
01:34:58Lloreanamiconn: I certainly don't mind to a release without dual boot or all features. I was just pointing it out. :) But I still think the 5022 battery life means they shouldn't be in the release.
01:35:02zeer BLINK
01:35:08Nico_Phandmadematters: I added an error message for when the DB isn't reayd
01:35:21amiconnze: That was not a *release* for sure ;)
01:35:53roolkuLlorean: the signals are there, but they may need to converted to the proper voltage levels
01:35:54amiconnLlorean: 5022 battery life is okay even if it's not as good as OF... 5020 is worse
01:36:24roolku*need to be*
01:36:37Nico_Proolku: I took a quick look at your patch... looks nice and simple :)
01:36:40Nico_PI'll test tomorrow
01:36:41LloreanIt just doesn't feel "release quality" to me. Personal opinion obviously, but I think a release should mean "things work how we want them" not "things work the best we can get right now"
01:36:57LloreanAnd while you may have to settle for "the best we can get", I don't think you should plan to use it in advance.
01:37:44LloreanOtherwise, we could just call today's daily the 3.0 release, and ship it with a known bugs .txt. Enough people use it anyway that it's "good enough" and it's surely "the best we can get in the next 5 minutes" :)
01:38:50 Join midgey [0] (
01:38:56amiconnI agree that current svn isn't release quality... but not due to the battery runtime issue
01:38:57roolkuNico_P: okay. Just wanted to know if you agree to the approach before I invest more time. I have a stupid business meeting tomorrow though, all day and evening. :(
01:38:58preglowLlorean: agreed
01:40:38amiconnIt's something that needs fixing, but it's not a show stopper like crashes, freezes and unexpected behaviour
01:40:59preglowi think lousy battery time is a showstopper, really
01:41:01Nico_Proolku: I don't know the DB code well enough to agree or disagree, really
01:41:16Nico_Ptbh, I don't know it at all
01:41:35LloreanI think it's a show stopper for a release, because putting that release "stamp" on it is like saying "We find this acceptable", and I really don't at least
01:41:46LloreanIt's something we *have* to accept, for now, but it's not something we *want* to accept
01:42:08Nico_Proolku: all PF needs is to be able to get a list of unique AA pics and the associated tracklist for each pic
01:42:28amiconnLlorean: Well, we call PP502x targets supported...
01:43:06roolkuNico_P: I don't think it will need the list. It can just return the index to the selected cover and the db can do the rest
01:43:25Lloreanamiconn: Because Rockbox is "usable" on them.
01:43:32Nico_Proolku: yeah, I meant under the form of db queries, kinda like we get the albums list ATM
01:43:50LloreanI just don't see why we should shoehorn targets into a release.
01:44:20roolkuNico_P: at the moment I am debating how to pass the list if coverimages which can be potentially quite long
01:44:22LloreanIf we swcodec release, we add X5/X5L/X5V, M5/M5L, H1xx, H3xx, and Gigabeat F/X even if we leave off all PortalPlayers
01:44:26LloreanI don't see any urgency to add them in
01:45:12Nico_Proolku: for the albums we do it iterator-style ("rb->tagcache_get_next(&tcs)")
01:46:11preglowLlorean: agreed completely, release to means the target is in the state i meant it to be
01:46:15preglowto me
01:46:41amiconnX5s and M5s aren't, and the irivers also have problems still
01:46:57LloreanI'm not talking about today, for those
01:47:19LloreanBut they have "fixable" problems, while the battery issue is too unknown to say "Hard work and good testing can get it done"
01:47:52roolkuNico_P: I am not sure if the api for filter results is accessable in a similar manner (yet), but will check it out
01:48:09preglowamiconn: i'm not saying they're ready now, i'm just saying those bugs are just a matter of debugging
01:48:33preglowfixing the pp bugs are a matter of disassembling, reverse engineering and hooking shit up to ampere meters

03:20:03DrewAnd for the record, I find long chains of text that aren't line broken incredibly hard to read.
03:20:25LloreanDrew: You can use line breaks. But it's also not necessary to do one every single sentence.
03:21:16DrewI separate my lines by thought pattern; it's just my typing style. I've never been yelled at it before. It's not my intention to spam, so I don't understand why it's so awful.
03:21:54LloreanIf you separate your lines by thought pattern, why did you type three separate lines on one thought, that being "When I edit tags, they don't update in the database"
03:22:20DrewBecause everyone thinks differently.
03:22:25advcomp2019Drew, some channels allow it and other channels do not allow it
03:22:31LloreanThis channel is logged, and it's a LOT easier for those of us who go back through the logs to catch up on development discussion to skip over irrelevant parts if they're on less lines.
03:23:16psycho_maniacthis is just a thought but how would you like it if i typed 100 thoughts each on seperate lines. while others are talking about developing a new plugin or something for rockbox.
03:23:29 Join karashata [0] (n=Kimi@
03:23:32LloreanSo if your sentences are short, please double or triple up. Go with "A thought, idea, or topic per line" rather than simply "Hit enter every time I hit period, or might hit period"
03:23:59Lloreanpsycho_maniac: Frankly, you're not helping the point by exaggerating cases.
03:24:16Drew@ adv: I don't understand why that is. @ Llorean: I understand your logic there, and it's for a good reason. @ psycho: No one else was talking.
03:24:19psycho_maniacwell i thought it would help. im sorry
03:24:32LloreanWe have guidelines, but there's no reason not to be polite when asking someone to follow them. He wasn't egregiously violating anything, just showing a lack of awareness of what we consider decent behaviour here.
03:25:25LloreanDrew: We have different requirements from other channels. It makes perfect sense that unlogged channels, logged channels, and channels that focus on development vs channels that focus on support have a vary disparate set of expectations and requirements.
03:25:41DrewI know that spamming is right out, and I don't do that. I didn't realize line breaking was considered spamming here. And you are right, Llorean.
03:26:30LloreanIt's not considered spamming. But it's considered best to type your whole thought / question / etc out. This also makes a conversation much easier to follow. For example, it's less likely someone will respond before you've said all relevant information.
03:28:27DrewI don't see how you figure that, but for the sake of saving your poor log I'll agree to make an effort not to breach the rules again, and we'll get off this subject, and back onto the old one.
03:28:40LloreanDrew: I already answered your question.
03:28:48 Part Prayer ("Leaving")
03:29:26DrewYou did, and I followed through with it. But it solved only one issue. The database did reinitialize, but a new problem arose with that.
03:30:07DrewNow the files that I retagged are tagged oddly: instead of the artist being MxPx, it is MxPx/MxPx. I don't know why that is.
03:30:32LloreanHave you verified the tags in another application on your PC?
03:31:10DrewI thought of that; I'm doing that now. Perhaps it is the "Contributing Artist" tag.
03:32:38 Part pradin
03:32:54DrewOh, and as I was just working in Explorer with the device, it stopped reading all the files again. Very peculiar.

03:47:56krazykitm4c, for now it seems to be simple eye candy.

03:50:01m4cIs it meant to be eye candy?
03:50:11m4cOr is it going to be something more?
03:50:41psycho_maniacits just for looks as of now. who knows what it will turn into
03:50:53karashatam4c: mainly eye candy, though the people working on it would like to make it able to play the album selected from the plugin
03:51:14karashataafaik it's not going to be put into the core or made a default browsing method
03:52:18m4cYes I know

04:31:30krazykitcountrymonkey, vorbis or speex
04:31:49Lloreanspeex, almost certainly
04:31:57countrymonkeyYeh right, like I can find a mp32spx converter for windows
04:32:17krazykitwell, transcoding is going to kill your audio quality anyway, you may as well keep them mp3
04:32:54LloreanConverting to speex is easy
04:32:56countrymonkeyI don't care about audio quality since it is all audiobooks. I got a hold of some cds that need to turn into rockboxable files.
04:33:03LloreanGet the speex command line converter and use foobar2000
04:33:16countrymonkeyand do it 1 file at a time?

05:05:37LloreanWell lame ones won't work on anything but the archos targets, and speex ones only work on all the other targets

05:06:23mcrlsnRockbox seems to see the file (it doesn't try to spell those files) but doesn't say anything (ie play the .talk file)
05:07:33mcrlsnThis tells me that I have the settings in Rockbox correct, but possibly have something else wrong. BTW I'm using a Sansa e260.
05:08:21mcrlsnI was curious of there is a specific format the speex files need to be (such as 8bit mono or something)
05:08:23LloreanAre you sure you have the speex encoded .talk files on the player, and not the lame ones?
05:08:38LloreanThe script you use for talk file generation should have sane defaults...
05:09:58mcrlsnI'm checking to make sure the correct files are on the Sansa
05:10:09mcrlsnAnd yes.. they are (just checked with mplayer)
05:10:32LloreanWait, I see you used speexenc
05:10:33LloreanThat won't work
05:10:41LloreanYou need to be using the rockbox tools for generating talk files
05:10:59countrymonkeyWhat is the difference between speexenc and rbspeexenc? files are a raw speex stream, if I understand correctly
05:11:08LloreanThey are not encapsulated in an ogg container
05:11:24mcrlsnAhhh! that would be my problem. Thank you!
05:12:08countrymonkeyI suppose the ogg container wastes space?
05:12:19LloreanAnd adds unnecessary complexity
05:12:26mcrlsnHmm.. I don't have a windows machine available, so I was unable to figure out how to use the tools
05:12:37LloreanThey can be compiled and used on linux or OSX too
05:12:51Lloreanrbspeexenc is provided as source in the /tools folder of the Rockbox source
05:12:53mcrlsnReally? they looked like VB scripts to me
05:13:07LloreanThe VoiceBox+ script is a VB script, I believe
05:13:10mcrlsnI'll take another look
05:13:14LloreanBut the encoder certainly is not
05:13:33countrymonkeyencoder=no vbscript, voicebox+=vbscript
05:13:55mcrlsnThank you for the help. I'll go do some more digging
05:14:19countrymonkeyIt is in the tools dir of the rockbox source

06:46:56uskii'll try to remove that flag just to see what happens. But it'd make more sense to ignore the flag, at least on these folders
06:47:34uski(i'll have to find a windows box first)
06:47:44LloreanWhy not just keep your music in folders the original firmware never hides.
06:47:57LloreanWe shouldn't automatically ignore the flag, because some people might want that folder hidden.
06:48:25uskii'd like to be able to use the original firmware too, and i assume that it won't look for files in other places
06:48:30LloreanWhen Rockbox has its own USB mode, it'll be irrelevant anyway, because you don't need to boot the original firmware for anything, and Rockbox of course won't do things you don't instruct it to.
06:48:35Lloreanuski: faulty assumption
06:48:42LloreanPeople report that it'll find mp3 audio anywhere on disk
06:48:50uskiok, great
06:49:11uskias for rockbox not having its own USB, is it because the entire USB mass-storage device stack is implemented in software ?
06:49:17LloreanAs well, if you want to use the original firmware for music too, it's your choice then, and hardly our responsibility to create extra hacks relating to the filesystem so that users can use the original firmware and not have to worry about its faults
06:49:21uskii know by experience implementing an USB protocol stack is... a mess :)
06:49:26LloreanYes, it's entirely in software
06:49:32LloreanWe're having problems with bulk transfers still
06:49:58uskiI see you point about not ignoring a filesystem flag, and i tend to agree with it anyway
06:50:44uskiwhat sort of problems ? is there a page about it somewhere on the wiki ?
06:50:50uskii might take a look at it someday
06:50:52LloreanI don't know the details myself.
06:50:58LloreanThere's a task in the Patch Tracker for it

11:15:36Casainhoalso because of the dev board

11:17:39Bagderand btw, my experience tells me the final product _never_ looks exactly like the dev board
11:17:55uskii'm not sure Atmel is known to offer long availability of their chips; they keep rotating their AVR microcontrollers
11:18:01CasainhoBagder: so, what you advice?
11:18:13BagderI'm sure they rotate their products about as fast as all others
11:18:35uskiyea but for instance microchip still provides the 16C54 which is one of the very first IC they offered
11:18:40BagderCasainho: nothing, just mentioning it since I got the impression you were planning to use the exact design from the board
11:18:45uski(i'm not a microchip fan it's just an example)
11:18:54uskia big problem with atmel is that they do not manufacture themselves their ICs
11:19:07Bagderyeah, I know the big fpga guys tend to claim to provide very old stuff too
11:19:15uskithis creates a need for them to stop producing ICs which are not sold well
11:19:22Bagderbut I don't know of any serious SoC manufacturers that do
11:19:32Bagderand I don't think it is a real issue for this project anyway
11:19:37uskimicrochip have their own production facilities, so they don't mind just running a new batch of old ICs just to have them in stock
11:19:56uskii was just pointing that out, and as you say the final project never looks like the dev HW so..
11:20:18markunBagder: too bad that fpga's are not power efficient enough, would be fun to use a open-cores based DAP :)
11:20:23Bagderthe involved people need to be prepared to phase out hw as they go end of life
11:20:38phri think 16c54 etc. are designed into industrial devices, mil, medical, etc. that would have to be requalified if anything changed, so there's requirements to keep the old parts available. nobody cares if last year's mp3 soc is still around

11:27:29uskiphr: i totally agree with you that noone cares about the future availability of some MP3 player chip; the point of my remark was to show that saying that the AVR32 is a good choice for future availability is not correct; i never said it matters for that application
11:27:35uskidamn on what sort of projects are you all working
11:27:48uskiusually it works correctly on the first PCB where i've worked
11:28:56*petur is working on big telecom cards with PQI or PQII processors...
11:29:08phri think the avr32 will stay around for a while, maybe not in some particular soc, but in one form or another, so it's worth targeting code to
11:29:35uskipetur: i see :)
11:30:03uskiwhere do i change the FM region setting on my sansa e200...
11:30:03Zagormy experience is similar to Bagders'. with the addition that it's not rare that the chips used contain bugs that we painstakingly find and report to the manufacturer...

11:30:56peturI have very frequent interaction with Maxim support (which is very good)
11:31:03uskithey actually designed these chips for JTAG programming/debugging, hence the J in their full names (PIC24HJ128GP306) for me
11:31:10uskiin their errata you can read:
11:31:12uskiModule: JTAG
11:31:15uskiProblem: it doesn't work
11:31:17uskiWork around: none
11:31:24uskipretty funny if you ask me
11:31:36uskihow can they release a chip like that
11:31:55uskialso we had some issue with the SPI and it was veeery suspicious
11:32:22uskii wanted to send 9bits stuff to a LCD display, so i just disable the SPI, send one bit manually, and reenable the SPI... doesn't work

11:59:42uskiLlorean, you should start thinking about buying 1 or 2 off ebays so that you have parts if you break something
11:59:47uskithey should be cheap now shouldn't they ?
11:59:48peturguess why I now have two h300's ;)
11:59:59Lloreanuski: They really aren't as cheap as you'd hope
12:00:15Lloreanthe h100 series is an incredible recording device with Rockbox.
12:00:29LloreanI need to watch for already broken ones.
12:01:14pixelmauski last I looked (about half a year ago though) they weren't cheap - H140 went for 200 and a bit above when in working condition
12:01:15peturLlorean: do you monitor MR? There are some sales there some times
12:01:45uskiMR ?

12:26:22roolkuhm, when I use the pictureflow for a while I reproducably get a Data Abort at 0007c6bc which according to my map file seems to be in memcpy? Any idea what could be causing that? Something like a wrong pointer perhaps?
12:27:11roolku(gigabeat, if that makes a difference)
12:28:38LloreanAh yes, we have a long standing habit of asking people to violate NDAs, surely. Wonderful.
12:28:43*Bagder can't figure out how to use rbutil...
12:28:56LloreanI haven't used it yet either.
12:29:11mrkikoBagder: follow the manual way - it works
12:29:13BagderI wanted to just replace my bootloader but...
12:29:30Bagderthe manual doesn't describe for example "select your device in the file system"
12:29:46Bagderand neither why the audio player list got blank all of a sudden
12:29:59Bagderso I can't select my type anymore and then the install procedure goes nuts
12:30:35Bagderthe autodetect worked!
12:30:44Bagdernow the download fails...
12:31:13Zagorwhat a bag of ...
12:31:14Bagderdownload error: received HTTP error -328392559
12:31:19LloreanI'd love an all purpose command-line installer to parallel RBUtil. "rbtool -bootloader -build -target=NANO /media/IPOD"
12:31:38Bagderthis "in file system" is not really clear
12:31:45Bagderit wants the device name
12:31:51LloreanIt shouldn't
12:31:56LloreanIt should want the mount point
12:32:05Bagderfor bootloader it needs the device
12:32:16LloreanYeah, but for the bootloader you shouldn't be locating it in the file system.
12:32:45Bagderhehe, that http error number looks totally random
12:32:49BagderI get a new one every time
12:32:58LloreanAt least, that's what I thought the reasoning behind the "in the file system" was, that we avoided "mount point" on the basis that some of the shinier modern distros are so friendly about automounting that people might not actually know what was meant by mount point.
12:33:34Bagder"Object::connect: No such signal HttpGet::downloadDone(int,bool)" in the console doesn't look really smooth either
12:34:03LloreanAre you using the most recent binary from the download. server or building yourself?

12:36:16Bagderwell, I got output in my terminal saying
12:36:23Bagder"[INFO] e200 found - /dev/sdc"
12:36:33Bagderwhich is entirely correct

14:23:51webguest69My CD has a 7-second gap between songs that I want to use rockbox features to remove. Which ones do I use and what do I do? Maybe not remove the gap from the file, but just not play that part of the file.
14:24:15GodEater_If the CD has the gap, there's little Rockbox can do about it
14:24:30jac0b-workcan't he do a crossfade
14:24:53jac0b-workto the next track
14:25:02GodEater_that's not the same as not playing the gap
14:25:06webguest69I would imagine crossfade could do it but I know very little about that stuff coming from ipod-os land. Just what settings would I use?
14:25:33 Quit ctaylorr (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
14:25:33GodEater_also 7 seconds is a long crossfade time
14:26:02webguest69I got this from the itunes music store, so...
14:26:04jac0b-workwebguest69: do you really want to keep that big of a gap on the beginning of your track?
14:26:16GodEater_webguest69: I thought you said it was from a CD ?
14:26:18webguest69I hate it.
14:26:42GodEater_I'd just use an audio editor to remove it
14:26:48webguest69It is. It was the only way I could get rb to play it. I burned it and ripped it again.
14:26:57GodEater_ah I see
14:27:08GodEater_well I'd still use an audio editor on it
14:27:14webguest69Anyway, what would the crossfade settings be?
14:27:18GodEater_that's a better idea than trying to cross fade such a large gap
14:27:23GodEater_webguest69: they're detailed in the manual
14:27:29GodEater_which you're supposed to read
14:28:01webguest69I have already checked there but I cannot figure out which setings need to be where
14:28:34GodEater_what was hard to understand about the crossfade section ?
14:28:37GodEater_maybe we can improve it
14:29:08LloreanGodEater_: The crossfade function options themselves are kinda bad.
14:29:10webguest69I know what the settings do, but it was difficult to figure it out. I don't know. Does the fade out delay need to be 0 and the fadeout duration 7 or are those the fade in settings or what
14:29:35LloreanThere's one more option than necessary, I think
14:30:24GodEater_really ?
14:30:35GodEater_they seem ok to me
14:30:36jac0b-workwebguest69: what player are you using
14:30:53webguest69No. Where do the fade in duration, fade in delay, fade out duration and fade out delay settings need to be? ipod4g
14:32:05LloreanGodEater_: Couldn't Fade In/Out Delay/Duration be replaced with "How many seconds of the ending song to use" "How many seconds of the new song to use" and "Total time spent crossfading"?

14:34:50jac0b-work Fade In Duration. Fade Out Delay. maybe both at 0

14:40:21jac0b-workthats true

16:55:59preglowif it's low, increase it, i've never used an h10

16:58:06BoD[]the scrobbler thing didn't work :(
16:58:29BoD[]now when I play a song... it doesn't play, and also the file was not created
16:59:30przemhbcurrently default radio gain is 0dB
16:59:44jhMikeSprzemhb: you mean for the philips chip? I'd usually prefer it to be set as loud as possible as long as it matches playback volume.
16:59:52przemhbat least for recording it would be good to increase it
17:00:17przemhbjhMikeS: yes, from Philips chip

17:02:05przemhbI do many recording from the radio
17:02:23jhMikeSI was just thinking it could have the input range be -34.5dB to +24dB
17:02:41przemhbI scanned 4 such 4h recs and noticed peek level of 0.24
17:03:31jhMikeSI think for FM playback it should have the same listening levels as PCM playback though.
17:03:57przemhbsimultaneous recording of the same station on small and big H10 one boot in OF second using RB gave 11.77dB RMS difference in the volume level
17:04:32jhMikeSSo small H10 doesn't need the +12dB boost
17:04:44LloreanjhMikeS: Well, considering the wide range of recorded audio levels, what would you do? Assume replaygained audio of 89, and attempt to match the radio to approximate that?
17:04:51preglowjhMikeS: any idea how i make the idle timeout just go away?
17:05:06przemhbI have used small H10 to record using iriver's OF
17:05:57jhMikeSLlorean: no, assume unamplified PCM at 0db and radio playback should match that level. Actually, setting gains on x5 and H10 to +12 both result in the level being at +0dB
17:06:24jhMikeSpreglow: idle timeout?
17:06:30LloreanjhMikeS: Ah, okay.
17:07:09preglowjhMikeS: like this thing switches off after 10 minutes of dsp use if i don't touch keys

17:11:35*jhMikeS does some checking
17:12:39jhMikeSyeah, it needs it on H100 too. setting recording gain to +12 normalizes to +0dB RMS with radio on.
17:13:39amiconnI'd think it depends massively on the radio station
17:13:51amiconnUnfortunately not all of them use the same modulation level
17:14:44jhMikeSIt's a consistent thing to have to set recording gain to +12 around here to get 0dB at the ADC. They vary but not that much.

20:23:51Nico_Pamiconn: we'll probably do bilinear too and give a choice
20:24:01Nico_Ppixelma: yeah sounds like it
20:24:48amiconnWho would prefer nearest neighbour over bilinear filtering??

20:25:35 Join spiorf [0] (n=spiorf@
20:25:52amiconnYes, somewhat.
20:26:20amiconnBut nearest neighbor looks so crappy especially when scaling down that I'd never use it
20:26:21Nico_Pwell maybe bilinear can replace nearest neighbour when it's implemented
20:26:45amiconnThe only exception is when scaling up by integer multiples, then it's okay
20:30:07amiconnThe old bitmap scaling patch did also use nearest neighbour only - one reason why I did not like it
20:37:16Nico_PI'll probably give bilinear a go tomorrow if jott doesn't do it before
20:38:48amiconnI think bilinear can be done without excessive buffering and with decent speed, provided the algorithm avoids division (use suitably scaling and right shifts instead)
20:39:24Nico_PjhMikeS: thanks :)
20:40:29jottamiconn: yes.. actually the nn scaling was just written because i needed it in pf .. didn't expect it get to the libs..
20:41:20jotti would propose using/porting the imlib2 scaling code is a good idea.. it seems to be robust and fast
20:41:54jhMikeSNico_P: covers stuff regarding edge detection and preservation if we want to be fancy about it
20:42:46amiconnNah, it still needs to be fast enough for embedded use
20:42:57amiconnPerhaps the gigabeast could handle such fancy stuff
20:43:39Nico_Pthat's why it makes sense to have several different methods available in the pluginlib
20:43:53Nico_Pof course in the core we'll have to find a compromise

23:02:45preglowjust brushed up the flanger i had already coded for now and added a menu
23:02:50preglowbut now that that's done, more effects will follow

23:04:20preglowNico_P: lousy, can't make it work with enough precision

23:05:25preglowyeah, indeed
23:05:40preglowit's just a hard problem using fixed point
23:06:08preglowi pretty much gave up a couple of days ago and decided to instead see if i can calculate some formulas that are hardwired to the filter types we use
23:06:36preglowbut that approach has two problems: 1. i have to do the math..., and 2. the formulas will probably have sqrt/asin/atan/etc in them
23:07:53jottpreglow: you may have to shift around the fractional part at some point to stay in range
23:08:31jottbut fixedpoint arithmetics can get quite messy, you are right ;)
23:08:31preglowjott: the problem right now is that the numerator and denominator of a fraction i need to calculate are too close
23:08:49preglowat the start of the filter response
23:09:00preglowthe higher frequency parts of the filter i can plot fine, not the lower parts

23:09:22Olofhello, im currently trying to convert my albumart to bmp 100X100 so rockbox can display it
23:09:39Olofi have 1500albums so converting them one by one isnt an option
23:10:00Olofi searched the forums and alot of people said that irfanview could handle it
23:10:02 Quit petur ("*plop*")
23:10:28Olofirfanview converts them to 100X100 bmp without any problems but i want to maintain the directory structure
23:10:40Olofdoes anyone know a simple solution to this problem?
23:10:45Olofrunning windows xp btw
23:11:57jottpreglow: pictureflow uses a long long based division, this will impact perfomance but gain precision/numerical stability..
23:12:32preglowwell, as long as you don't do so too often you're ok

23:14:59SoapOlof, you need to write a batch script to manually traverse your directory structure, and perform the convertion operation one-by-one with the command-line version of irfanview (if that is the program you want to use)
23:16:19 Join phr [0] (
23:16:26SoapSomeone here once gave me the excellent program fae.exe for doing this within windows. I forget who gave me this traversing program - or under what terms they gave it to me - so I don't feel good about redistributing it. If they see this and want to PM me I would be gracious.

23:19:37preglowimagemagick works just fine
23:19:40preglowyou still need the batch part
23:20:08Olofpreglow: i dont mind using a non-gui program at all and ive used imagemagick before :)
23:20:09*jott throws bash one-liners around
23:20:21Olofbut im not sure how i can achieve this under windows xp
23:20:30Soapregardless of what converter you use - you need one which performs the same operation (convert folder.jpg to cover.bmp, scale cover.bmp) in every directory in your tree while dumping the result in the folder the folder.jpg was found it. The only way _I_ found to do this was to run the operation in each and every directory - which is where FAE comes in as it navigates up the tree repeating a windows command.
23:21:17OlofSoap: what does FAE stand for? got any more information on where to find it etc
23:21:19Soappreglow, how do you use imagemagick from the command line in Windows - and have it work in multiple directories - I looked into it but was unable to figure out a batch script to do so.
23:21:40Bagderusing cygwin+imagemagick, it should be fairly easy
23:21:59Bagderfind . -name "*.jpg" ...
23:22:02preglowOlof: no, the windows part would be what i'm not sure about
23:22:07preglowit's trivial if you've got a proper shel, though
23:22:12preglowor a port of "find"
23:22:14Olofpreglow: ok :/
23:22:19Olofyea, i just thought of that
23:22:26zei'd just do a for f in $(find -iname '*.jpg');do convert -sample 100x100 "$f" "${f/\.jpg/.bmp}";done or such
23:22:31Soapdidn't think about looking for a port of 'find'
23:23:04Oloffind seems to be included in windows
