02:25:43Mouser_XNico_P: You there? Mind if I ask about ADX fixings in the MoB stuff?
02:26:11Nico_PMouser_X: yes I'm here... ask away :)
02:26:12 Quit obo ("bye")
02:26:42Mouser_XI was listening to some ADXs in the "repeat 1" mode, and the disk had to spinup, causing the beggining of the file to be overwritten. Thus, when it attempted to loop, it caused a codec failure.
02:27:02Mouser_XShouldn't the buffer leave the file alone, since you're listening to the same one repeatedly?
02:27:22Mouser_X(ADXs loop, if you don't remember them... They're still not working either.)
02:28:18Nico_Pdoes the file loop even if you don't use repeat 1?
02:28:47Nico_Prepeat 1 will cause the buffer to endlessly fill with multiple copies of the same track (not MoB's fault)
02:29:07Mouser_XIt tries to, but fails (if it's near the end of the buffer), because the beggining to file is overwritten.,
02:29:11 Quit countrymonkey ("CGI:IRC (Ping timeout)")
02:29:44Nico_PMouser_X: is the file biffer than the buffer? does it do the same without repeat1?
02:30:33Mouser_XThere are very few ADXs that are larger than the buffer, but there are a few that are 26 MB. Most of them float around the 5-15 MB range.
02:31:09Mouser_XIf by "the same w/o repeat 1" you mean it fails, then yes, if it's near the end of the buffer.
02:31:29Nico_Pso these shouldn't be allowed to be partial?
02:31:31Mouser_XWhen the ADX attempts to loop, it goes back to the begining of the file.
02:31:41Mouser_XEssentially, yes.
02:32:11Mouser_XThough, it's not necessarily required, it makes them work much better if the entire file is available for the entire duration of playback.
02:32:22Nico_PI should look at how the codec handles the looping... there's no reason why it couldn't work
02:32:56Mouser_XI think HCS sent you some ADXs to look at, didn't he?
02:33:11Mouser_X(It helped find some problems with the buffering.)
02:33:13Nico_Pyes, I never got round to actually trying them out :/
02:34:14Mouser_XADXs, because they're streamed, don't require 100% of the file to begin playing. However, to loop them, you would need the whole file in the buffer.
02:35:27Mouser_XIn other words, partially loading them first and starting playback is fine. It's overwriting parts of the file (to fill the buffer for the next tracks) that causes problems, because they attempt to loop, thus reading from the beginning of the file (which is now gone, to make room for more buffer).
02:39:47Nico_Pbut to loop you only need the end and the beginning, right?
02:42:00Mouser_XThe middle would be a good idea as well, but yes.

02:46:14Mouser_Xlostlogic worked on it a little as well, but he finds ADXs to be blight among music formats...
02:46:33Mouser_X(He finds the looping aspect to be a serious pain.)
02:48:50 Part johns
02:48:54Mouser_XNico_P: I was listening to some ADXs yesterday, and I noticed that when going through their second loop (thus the audio data has been gone over once already), the buffer will overwrite the data, even as it's being played from.
02:59:07Nico_PMouser_X: it seems ok to me, I must be missing something
02:59:24 Join animeloe_ [0] (n=animeloe@unaffiliated/animeloe)
03:00:34Mouser_XDid you only listen to 1 ADX, or all 3 (he send tyou 3 didn't he?)?
03:01:04Mouser_XThe problem only happens if the ADX is near the end of the buffer, because then the buffer will overwrite the file, to fill the buffer.
03:01:07Nico_PI'm using the first one for the tests, but yeah, he sent me 3
03:01:38Nico_Pyes but when I fixed FS #8092 a while ago it should have solved that too
03:01:41Mouser_XThe 3 he sent should be large enough that they'll fill the buffer, and cause the last file to fail, due to filling the buffer again.
03:01:57Mouser_XYes, that's what I would have thought, but it doesn't seem to have done so.
03:02:06*Mouser_X will check his version of Rockbox.
03:03:33Mouser_XWhat revision was 8092 fixed in?
03:04:07Nico_Pin my test I did the following: with repeat set to one, play the first track. press next once resulting in having a copy that is only partly buffered... seek to the end, which results in dropping the beginning of the file and buffering the end. wait for the loop
03:04:11Nico_Plet me check
03:05:22Mouser_XYah, just saw that. HCS sent me a build, but it seems that it doesn't have that fix in it (it's older than I thought).
03:05:34Nico_Pthe commit was made on Mon Nov 26 21:13:08 2007
03:06:03Nico_Ptry downloading the current build
03:06:20Mouser_XI have a newer version on my Sansa. I guess I didn't notice it, because the Sansa has flash, and thus I wouldn't have noticed it doing a "drive" read.
03:06:55Mouser_X(Meaning, I didn't notice that it was reading, thus filling the buffer, thus possibly overwriting the file in the buffer).

Though, ADXs do seem to pause occasionally, when they loop, due to the buffer needing to be refilled (I assume that the buffer filled, overwriting the begining of the ADX. When it looped, the buffer had to do a backwords seek, thus forcing a refill of the buffer again [/assuming]).

12:38:34LloreanSo what?

12:39:35LloreanMost DAPs that use a AAA or AA are usually nearly 1/3 again the size they could be with a custom battery.
12:39:46phr__95% of players run proprietary software but the 5% of us who run rockbox think we're doing the right thing
12:40:07phr__llorean, so? the m200 is small enough for most purposes

12:40:24phr__the m200 is smaller than the 200 but maybe a teensy bit larger than the c200

12:40:38LloreanYes, it's also a good deal less functional than the c200
12:40:49phr__it's an audio player. if i want to watch video i'll buy a tv set.
12:41:39LloreanSo what you're saying is that your limited requirements define "smart hardware design", and the things you're willing to overlook should be overlooked by everyone?
12:41:56LloreanBecause that's what I'm hearing with your "only one player in current production has intelligent hardware design" statement, and your arguments here.
12:42:28phr__what can i say, you're entitled to think whatever you want

12:44:06LloreanNot everyone wants to be forced to pay continually for new AAAs or deal with the memory effect in rechargeable NiCDs
12:44:42LloreanA user replaceable LiIon battery that allows the manufacturer to also fit in an expansion slot AND make the player smaller sounds plenty good design to me.
12:45:11desowinthere was some rumour about betteries that could last for years ;-)
12:45:16phr__memory effect is a myth, self-discharge is solved by newer nimh cells and doesn't affect people who use their player much, and li ion doesn't make the player smaller
12:45:23phr__it just gives more control over the hsape
12:45:28Lloreanphr__: Memory effect is not a myth
12:45:32LloreanIt's pretty darn easy to test.
12:45:58 Join moos [0] (
12:46:36LloreanAnd it does make the player smaller, because less volume has to be wasted. I hate to tell you, but the round nature of AAA batteries means there's a good deal of volume wasted to fit them in.
12:46:36desowin - just wait for those adjusted for portable players ;-)
12:47:39phr__i just measured the c240 battery, 4.4 x 24.2 x 56 mm = 5958 mm**3. its claimed energy capacity is 530 mah 3.7v which is 1.96 WH.
12:47:50phr__so, 3000 mm**3 per WH
12:48:29Lloreanphr__: I can see you're on your way to a nicely unfair comparison
12:48:34phr__what's unfair?
12:48:54LloreanDo you know that's the maximum capacity of a li-ion of that size, or is it the capacity Sandisk chose for price?
12:49:27phr__it's about normal for that size, it's comparable to what you find in small cell phones
12:50:10phr__anyway sandisk sells replacement li ion packs for something like 20 bucks, vs about 2 bucks for a nimh aaa cell, so they are in no position to whinge about cost cutting :)

12:51:43LloreanAnyway, my whole point is "don't make sweeping generalizations about hardware design based on your own preconceptions."

12:52:59phr__well, what can i say, a heck of a lot of users are happy running windows and proprietary firmware, but i like to think that rockbox users who obviously have much more sense about wanting nonproprietary firmware ought to have the same attitude about hardaware. if you want to think something different, that's your prerogative.
12:53:10LloreanIt's pretty clear, as well, that you're basing it on factors entirely unrelated to Rockbox anyway
12:53:44phr__that is true, if there was a 1gb player that weighed 3 pounds and emitted horrible smells, i'd say it sucked for reasons unrelated to rockbox, even if it ran on aa cells
12:53:56LloreanYes, but this is #Rockbox
12:54:02LloreanWhich means ONLY rockbox related stuff is on topic
12:54:07Galoisthere is a valid point hiding in all this nonsense −− if proprietary hardware wins, then rockbox has no future
12:54:15phr__yeah but if someone asked about a player that weighed 3 pounds and smelled bad, i'd tell them it sucked
12:54:17LloreanI got into the conversation because I thought the hardware judgements were relative to Rockbox suitability

12:54:56LloreanGalois: Then we'd be forced to bypass it, instead of saying "Well we don't care, plenty of other fish in the seas."
12:55:08phr__the m200 uses a standard mini-b connector instead of that awful proprietary thing
12:55:21Galoismaybe, but nothing so far suggests that we can bypass it
12:55:23phr__also, the m200 supports UMS out of the box
12:55:29Lloreanphr__: Meanwhile that dock port gives me a proper line out, line in for higher quality recording, and serial interface.
12:55:41LloreanAnd the c200 supports UMS just fine.
12:55:55LloreanGalois: If they can run code, we can too. It's all a question of "how hard" not "if"
12:55:56phr__llorean they removed UMS probably for some DRM reason
12:56:02LloreanNot on the c200v1s
12:56:12LloreanAnd reports indicate, not on the v2s either
12:56:14phr__yes really, i have three c240 v1's that have no UMS
12:56:18LloreanYes, they do
12:56:21LloreanI have the latest firmware.
12:56:31LloreanIt's still there. You perhaps just don't know how to access it in windows.
12:56:37phr__i don't use windows
12:56:42phr__i don't like proprietary software
12:57:20LloreanWell, I assure you, UMS is still there. They hid it away a little bit, and the device tries to determine if the host supports MTP, and if so, tries to connect like that, as far as I can tell
12:57:28GaloisI wish I shared your optimism. But unlike you I don't see any inherent reason why tamperproof hardware isn't possible.
12:57:28phr__there is something in the rockbox wiki saying i have to revert the current firmware to an older version before i can use ums to install rockbox
12:57:36LloreanYou can force the decision by, when already in the OF, turning on hold, holding down the |<< button, and inserting the USB cable
12:57:43phr__if that is wrong, then great,
12:57:49phr__hmm ok let me try that]
12:58:07LloreanThe wiki is edited by all kinds of people. Sadly many of them do like you, and state opinions as fact.
12:58:17LloreanGalois: If they can run code on it, that means there's a way to sign that code to be run, right?
12:58:28Galoisyes, and that signing might be done with public key crypto
12:58:36LloreanGalois: The ONLY sort of tamperproof hardware would be Read-Only firmware, permanently non-upgradeable.
12:58:39Galoisand public key crypto is very very hard to break head-on
12:58:50LloreanBut that still means it's a "how hard" rather than an "if"
12:59:05LloreanI didn't say it would be feasible any time soon, merely that if they can do it, it's POSSIBLE
12:59:10GaloisI'll go out on a limb and say that if the NSA can't break PKC head-on then we can't either
12:59:16Galoisyou have to find some side-angle, like with the xbox linux hacking
12:59:26Galoisand those side angles are accidents, buffer overflows, etc
12:59:31LloreanThat doesn't make it IMPOSSIBLE though
12:59:40LloreanYou're interpreting what I'm saying as something other than what it means.
12:59:47phr__what's the OF?
12:59:52Lloreanphr__: Original Firmware.
12:59:53GaloisI think it's practically impossible to break RSA 2048 head on
13:00:05LloreanGalois: Please, read what I'm saying.
13:00:17LloreanPractically Impossible just means "It can't be done in a practical manner" not "It can't be done"
13:00:29LloreanI also never said anything about cracking it head on.
13:00:30phr__do i power up the c240 first?
13:00:47GaloisI draw no distinction between "it can't be done practically" and "it can't be done"
13:00:50Lloreanphr__: I do believe I said that you need to be in the original firmware. Since you're in neither when it's off, that follows.'
13:00:54GaloisI mean, what are you proposing, to do it impractically?
13:00:55LloreanGalois: Then that's YOUR problem.
13:00:58desowinthe RSA itself is hard to break...but protocols and such are rather 'breakable'
13:01:05LloreanI'm proposing that it's _POSSIBLE_
13:01:12LloreanThat's ALL I'm proposing.
13:01:17GaloisI think your possibility is true but irrelevant
13:01:18phr__well i remember there's some unbrick sequence that involves holding down a button while powering up the unit
13:01:33phr__the nsa is recommending elliptic curve public key systems and requiring them for govt use
13:01:35Galoisdesowin: yes, that's the side angle attack I described. I see no reason why such an attack would always be possible.
13:01:37LloreanGalois: Well, ALL I ever said was it's possible. If you thought that was true, there was no sense arguing
13:01:54GaloisI think it's technically true but not a helpful truth for rockbox
13:01:58LloreanGalois: As it stands, new attacks are invented frequently, and new hardware. One day encryption that seems "strong" now will be nothing, and all kinds of new encryptions will be in use.
13:02:12phr__ok here goes
13:02:28Galoisllorean, that's again getting into the realm of predicting the future. I do not share your optimism. This is a matter of opinion, not fact.
13:02:35LloreanGalois: Yes.
13:02:49LloreanGalois: But you stated it as "fact" that it might become impossible
13:03:13Galoisokay, you're right. I stated as fact that it might become impossible. But might is a very weak word.
13:03:17desowinGalois: I think it always would be possible...for exmaple look at modchips used in "non-ever-breakable" consoles like wii, xbox360 and others
13:03:28LloreanGalois: I said that it will always be possible as long as firmware is upgradeable, and you disagreed. It's a binary situation, meaning that your position MUST be that it wouldn't bep ossible
13:03:57Galoisargh, it's not worth arguing
13:04:00LloreanGalois: It's physically impossible for it to become impossible so long as firmware is upgradeable. There's no unbreakable encryption, just impractical to break encryption.
13:04:18Galoisquantum cryptography is unbreakable unless quantum mechanics is wrong.
13:04:24LloreanMy point is: Say exactly what you mean, don't generalize by saying something is "impossible" when you mean "not practical", as they're different things
13:04:40LloreanNo, quantum cryptography cannot be broken or tampered with without leaving evidence.
13:04:47LloreanIf it were unbreakable, the receiving end couldn't decrypt it.
13:06:12Lloreanphr__: Any luck?

13:07:58phri tried that thing of plugging in the usb cable with the >> button pressed and it crashed my box again i.e. probably running MTP
13:08:08LloreanI said |<<
13:08:09phrit also got the player itself in a wedged state where i couldn't turn it off except by popping the battery
13:08:11LloreanAnd hold must be on
13:08:17phraha, whoops
13:08:33LloreanAlso, hold the power long enough and they'll always shut off
13:08:39Lloreanno need to pop a battery, it's a hardware feature.
13:08:56phrok here goes again. i held power for 10-15 sec but maybe that wasn't long enough
13:09:29LloreanAs far as I know, the time is "15 seconds" but some people have said it's taken them as much as 30, oddly enough
13:09:54phrwoo hoo! that worked, thanks!
13:10:00phri wonder which firmware this c240 is running
13:10:18LloreanI assume there's something about your computer that makes it want to try MTP.
13:10:28LloreanI know on my Ubuntu box, it *usually* mounts fine without the trick
13:10:34phrwtf? i think this is a v2 c240
13:10:34LloreanThough occasionally mounts read only.
13:10:43Lloreanv3.something firmware?
13:10:51LloreanYeah, it's a v2 then.
13:11:03phrthe other one that i tried is a v1

13:11:21GaloisI still don't think it's always guaranteed to be possible for the rockbox project to run code just because someone else can run code. Rockbox as a project is resource-constrained. RSA-2048 or some other sufficiently strong cryptosystem is (conjecturally) impossible to break without a certain level of computational resources.
13:11:26LloreanPlease don't paste into the channel
13:12:05LloreanGalois: It's not guaranteed to be possible for Rockbox to do it. But "Rockbox won't have the resources to do it" doesn't mean "It's impossible" it just means "It's possible, but outside our means"
13:12:15phrmaybe 01.05 is the version #
13:12:16Galoisit's infeasible
13:12:25LloreanThat's a different word than "impossible" though
13:12:30Galoisyou're right
13:12:45Galoishowever, the larger point still holds: infeasibility will kill the future of rockbox, just as surely as impossibility will
13:13:26phraha, 01.01.05P just like the other one
13:13:31phrso the wiki is wrong
13:13:51LloreanGalois: I think though that it's unlikely to ever get that far.
13:14:01phrit already has with the ipod, it looks like
13:14:14GaloisLlorean, I hope very strongly that you're right about that
13:14:26Lloreanphr: I don't think anyone suitably determined has investigated the iPod.
13:14:49LloreanThere's really only two projects with an interest in running unsigned code on it, and Rockbox hasn't bothered, and I don't think iPL has either.
13:14:52phranyway it's near miraculous that rockbox works as well as it does
13:15:01phron the players that it runs on
13:15:33SlasheriGalois: we can build our own hardware if that should ever happen
13:16:10phrthere's someone on the rockbox forum supposedly building hardware
13:16:17LloreanOr just concentrate on interesting older hardware that we haven't gotten to yet, because it wasn't interesting enough at the time. Or concentrate on Rockbox as an app. Or so on.
13:16:19phrso it will be great if that actually gets somewhere and builds something decent
13:17:08phrbut i didn't get an impression of it being all that serious
13:17:10 Quit Axio (Remote closed the connection)
13:17:15Galoismaybe in europe you can build your own hardware, but in the US they have lovely laws that for example require things like the broadcast flag

13:20:48phrhah, the battery of this c240 is at 2 bars already! it's been running about 5 minutes since i charged it
13:20:52Galoisvictoryemulator: we can't predict the future. However so far no one is working on it.
13:21:18***Alert Mode OFF
13:21:23phr6g = classic, i.e. the new 160gb unit? yeah i also heard they used encryption
13:21:29GaloisMy personal opinion (not fact) is that it will never be supported.
13:21:59victoryemulatorassuming that someone starts to port it, i wud be glad to test;)
13:22:19phrdoes anyone really want a 160gb audio player or are they mostly using those things for video?
13:22:19LloreanWell, nobody's really interested in working on it.
13:22:34LloreanSo it's unlikely to get supported unless something changes the fundamental situation, such as somebody new showing up to work on it
13:22:47victoryemulatorLOL! the touche effect...
13:22:49Lloreanphr: I know people who find 160gb of *mp3s* not enough
13:22:56phryeah true :)
13:23:03LloreanI could use 160gb, but only if I kept my audio as lossless
13:23:05victoryemulatorI do not find it enough
13:23:15victoryemulatoreven with mp3s
13:23:35LloreanI mean, assuming iTunes price/mb, 160gb is something like $40,000 worth of music
13:23:59phri think i have about 10gb of mp3's most of which i don't listen to much, so i feel slightly cramped with my 4gb m200, but figure with something like 32gb i'd be set for quite a while
13:24:00victoryemulatorOK assuming that someone does, would it be including Xvid support?
13:24:05Galoisvictoryemulator: I sense that the general feeling is that Apple clearly doesn't want to play by the rules of the open source community, so our community is not interested in Apple anymore.
13:24:10Lloreanvictoryemulator: Rockbox doesn't have XVid support
13:24:21GaloisFor this reason, nobody is interested in working on the new ipods.
13:24:41victoryemulatorOh :(
13:24:56LloreanGalois: It's not a "by the rules" issue
13:25:06LloreanWe've had firmware signing and other things to bypass before.
13:25:15LloreanIt's just not interesting enough to be worth the time and effort for most people.
13:25:19LloreanThey're just iPods.
13:25:36victoryemulatorwell ipod users are also humans
13:25:49victoryemulatorthey desrve the openness
13:25:54phrthe ipod classic is certainly about the smallest 160gb unit
13:26:02Lloreanvictoryemulator: Then they're more than welcome to work on it.
13:26:03Domonokyits more, just a new port (the new ipods have completly new hardware), so its the same as for every other unsuported player
13:26:25victoryemulatorHmm it would have to start from scratch then
13:26:28LloreanThe previous iPods really only got ports because of how much work was already done on iPod Linux, I think.
13:26:43victoryemulatorkernel and all?
13:27:20Domonokyvictoryemulator: only hardware near code would have to be rewritten. the problem is encryption and no docs..
13:27:57victoryemulatorwell encryption yes that is going to be tricky
13:28:23CtcpIgnored 2 channel CTCP requests in 1 second at the last flood
13:28:23*Domonoky thinks the "no docs aviable" is a bigger problem..
13:28:47Domonokywe already run on hardware, where the original firmware was encrypted..
13:28:55LloreanEncryption is something you either bypass or you don't.
13:29:05LloreanUndocumented hardware apparently drags at you for years. :)

13:33:41phrreal audio? i thought that itself was some secret format
13:33:47Domonokyah, damn patents...
13:33:54LloreanReal Audio has several formats

13:36:02victoryemulatorI am from India and we do not really use the online music stores so as of now DRM is not much of an issue here but the fact is that we are pretty against DRM coz it just does not with concept of freedom

15:47:08stripwaxWould anyone have any preferences on a default image for the color lcd bitmap sliding puzzle plugin? Since the original was a small fish puzzle, how about we use a Creative Commons/public domain picture of fish also?
15:47:50LloreanAs long as it's distinct enough that there's no significant confusion when it's chopped up into bits as to which one is which.

16:58:50bobruleswhen you scroll clockwise it should go right
16:59:00Lloreanbobrules: Do the covers move left, or move right, then?
16:59:08*Llorean hasn't tried coverflow.
16:59:11kugelbut, appearently, the e200 is the only target having the wrong direction
16:59:12bobrulesmove left
16:59:19LloreanIf they move left, then you're *going* right.
16:59:21kugelI asked jott about this

17:01:07PaulPositionNico_P : Thanks :) (re: "It was a classic case of out of bounds access after resizing, more visible on the H10 because it has a small screen size and we use the screen size as buffer size.")
17:01:09stripwaxIf it's not real (if it does indeed work still) then sounds like it can be committed
17:01:11Lloreanbobrules: When scrolling Clockwise, do the images come on the right side of the screen, and leave the left side?
17:01:13kugelhe means that scrolling clockwise goes backwards in coverflow
17:01:19bobrulesno opposite
17:01:28LloreanOkay, then the images MOVE right.
17:01:38LloreanI asked and you said they moved left.
17:02:00bobruleslet me get it out first
17:02:01kugelbobrules: are you sure? My e200 behaves like I said

17:02:45bobruleswhen I scroll clockwise the picture moves left
17:02:55LloreanIt enters the right side, and leaves the left side?
17:03:17bobrulesno oppsoite
17:03:23LloreanThen the pictures are moving right...
17:03:24kugelLlorean: No
17:03:27bobrulespicture comes from left moves to middle
17:03:33LloreanWhen you say "The pictures move..." you should say what direction the pictures move...
17:03:41bobrulesokay how about this
17:03:45kugelLlorean: When I scroll clockwise, the images comes from the left
17:03:50Lloreankugel: Okay
17:03:51bobrulesI'm at the most left picture
17:04:05bobruleswhen I move clockwise nothing happenes
17:04:13LloreanThe direction you move in the list is the *opposite* direction of that which the pictures move.
17:04:16kugelyea, like I said
17:04:42kugelI allready talked about that issue with jott
17:04:59bobrulesmaybe it's a preference issue
17:05:05kugelhe said, he'd see what he could do without affecting other targets
17:05:05bobrulescause I usually start scrolling at the top
17:05:30kugelbobrules: nah, it's a bug imo
17:05:47Lloreanbobrules: I'm not saying anything about what's right or wrong. I'm just saying, if you say "The pictures move in a direction" you should actually mean that they're MOVING in that direction.
17:05:48jottmaybe it's better not to use PLA after all and use individual mappings for each target
17:05:49stripwaxI think that direction makes sense to me, for what it's worth
17:06:11Lloreanstripwax: Clockwise should move you "forward" in the list... which is Right. Right now it moves you Backward / Left on the Sansa e200 apparently
17:06:47Lloreanjott: I haven't looked at the plugin code, but can't you just have an #IFDEF for the sansa e200, and swap a positive/negative?
17:06:48jottor it is a "bug" in the pla defintions?!
17:07:21bobrulesif I turn my player up side down it makes perfect snese
17:07:22jottLlorean: sure that would work. but then we are close to the old individual (non PLA) mappings again..
17:07:43Lloreanjott: Then again, as far as I know, the wheel directions should be identical to the iPods...
17:08:21bobrulesbut it's reversed of Rockbox

17:12:32LloreanBecause it's broken right now
17:13:28kugelthe PLA actions are not the same for e200 and ipods
17:13:56jotte200 uses "SCROLL_UP" and ipods have a "SCROLL_FWD"
17:14:01kugelPLA_UP is BUTTON_SCROLL_UP for e200, and BUTTON_SCROLL_FWD for ipods
17:14:19bobrulesis it easily changable?
17:14:29kugelwhy doesn't e200 use FWD too? would be easier to handle
17:17:25kugelI just looked at keymap_e200.c
17:17:42kugelvolume increase in the wps is BUTTON_SCROLL_DOWN

17:21:47Lloreankugel: or why it's not UP/Down for the iPod
17:21:54LloreanSince Rockbox is primarily list based, so it makes more sense
17:22:50kugelIMO, up/down is not suitable for a wheel
17:22:58LloreanNeither is fwd/backwd
17:23:19LloreanThey're as unacceptable as up/down at least
17:23:26kugelbut clockwise and counter-clockwise would be

17:24:06LloreanSo, because *you* think it should be that way?
17:24:22jottwell clockwise and counter-clockwise are quite universal i would propose
17:24:31LloreanClockwise and Counter are much better than either
17:24:50LloreanFWD/Back are meaningless in terms of rotation, same with Up/Down

17:26:41kugelMethoS−−-: run configure, and choose installer build
17:27:19PaulPositionLlorean - true enough.
17:27:56Soapregardless of the fact we could debate "Is clockwise right or left" all day - unlike a theoretical disk floating in space the wheel on a MP3 player has a clearly defined "up". It is from this "up" which left and right are measured.
17:28:32LloreanSoap: Well then you also know which up "up" is.
17:29:04LloreanBut it's internal key bindings anyawy
17:29:05DefineBytei say go for turnwise and leftwards
17:29:12LloreanI think CLOCK and COUNTER are more explicit anyway
17:29:23 Join stripwax_ [0] (
17:29:29Soapboth ways are down when initiated from the top position
17:29:35bobrulestry scrolling from the top, then try scrollign from the bottom, the meaning changes
17:29:54LloreanSoap: And Left is different when initiated from the Top vs the Buttom
17:29:59pixelmayes, especially since the e200 scrollwheel definitions are still named BUTTON_SCROLL_UP/DOWN ... ;)
17:30:01LloreanAnd both are "Right" from the left side, etc.
17:30:02jottSoap: i guess when you are in some RTL written country you might think othwerise ...(not sure about that though)
17:30:12jottanyway CLOCK is better than both
17:30:14jottright to left
17:30:16kugelCLOCK and COUNTER allways has the same meaning
17:30:22LloreanIt really depends on whether you define "Left" "Top" "Right" or "Bottom" as the point of reference on the wheel
17:30:31MethoS---kugel: there is no configure script in ./rbutilqt
17:30:50MethoS---ah, thx
17:31:06LloreanCLOCK and COUNTER are absolute, and also means that if you want "Clock" to go down in lists, but up in volume, and right in a game, it all makes sense.
17:31:14SoapI agree that clock and counter are always proper - but I'd argue that right/left (and the implicit assumption most people reference from the top) is not a stretch.
17:31:31Soap"Rightie Tightie / Lefty Loosie" for example.
17:31:41LloreanSoap: I reference from the left, just because most dials with limited points start at 0 on the left
17:31:46jottSoap: that's my point you might refer up/down from right, not from left
17:32:04jottanyway.. i think we all agree on CLOCK/CC

17:35:20kugelI could give it a try
17:35:56jottoh and there is H10 which has definitely a up/down scrolling direction :)

20:26:55stripwax_Nico_P - hm, sprinkling rb->splash liberally through my code as an aid to debugging, the plugin now aborts almost as soon as it is launched. Could this symptom show if my plugin is too big? I've got two largeish LCD buffers

20:31:40LloreanIf it's too big, I believe it simply won't ocmpile.
20:32:09stripwax_Llorean - the compiler won't know how much stack the plugins needs (or will it?)

20:45:37stripwax_I have one major function, to which I added a rb->splash right at the start, and that splash doesn't appear. So my guess is I'm crashing out during the function entry which suggests to me stack problems. Will see what I can find, it's rather strange

22:59:06pixelmacan't help with the html manual either :\ one would need to install the tex4ht package manually for cygwin and I couldn't figure it out when I tried a while ago (pondlife neither) :\

23:01:49stripwaxDoes it normally take a very long time to build the pictureflow database? Mine's been running for about five minutes and the progress bar is about 25% across. I have something like 10000 tracks but less than half that number actually has album art

23:13:06stripwaxSaw this about pictureflow: "some images also have a reflection above, haven't worked out what is special about them, maybe size?". Could it occur when the bmp is bottom-up i.e. negative height?

23:14:32Genre9mp3petur: you have installed an 80GB drive in you H340, right?
23:15:00Genre9mp3Is that the MK8007GAH?
23:15:12peturiirc, yes
23:15:59Genre9mp3Today I was searching for a hard drive replacement and I _think_ I've found an 120GB drive that fits into an H340
23:16:25peturno zif connection then?
23:16:34Genre9mp3I think/hope so
23:16:48Genre9mp3Here's a link:
23:17:24Genre9mp3If you see, in the N series they have 4 different 120GB models
23:18:08Genre9mp3 HS122JB and HS120JB are listed as "PATA/ZIF" while HS122JC and HS120JC as just "PATA"
23:19:13Genre9mp3I've made a search on ebay and found this:

23:20:12Genre9mp3I'm a bit confused though, because if I judge from the pic, it seems to me that the drive is 2.5' and not 1.8'

23:23:59stripwaxSome weird pictureflow bugs: 1. With a mixture of 100x100 and 200x200 bmps in my collection, scrolling past a 'large' album sometimes makes one of the smaller covers in the background pop to the front for a moment, breaking the illusion
23:24:43stripwax2. One of my albums, when I select it, shows the same tracklisting three times over (tracklisting screen has a list that is three times longer than it should be)
23:24:49Genre9mp3petur: any ideas on this?
23:25:12stripwaxAnother of mine has the tracklisting displayed twice
23:25:44stripwax3. In the settings menu, selecting "Zoom" brings up a new submenu with the title "Number Of Slides" (rather than "Zoom")
23:25:52stripwaxIt is the zoom menu, but the title is wrong
23:27:26stripwax4. CPU is left boosted even when we're just in the settings menu or the tracklisting page doing nothing - would it not be better to only boost while animating?
23:30:51bobrulesyay svn is back
23:31:58peturGenre9mp3: the current toshiba's are 78.5x54x8 and that samsung is 71x54x8 which would explain that it looks more square
23:33:38peturit would be nice to know what they mean with PATA though
