#rockbox log for 2007-12-26

00:00:01advcomp2019manat33, do you have a link?

00:06:13dapatilwhy can't rockbox run on the 3rd gen nano ?
00:06:30Bagderdapatil: because nobody ported rockbox to that target
00:07:22Workaphobiadapatil: I believe it's because apple put more restrictions on the hardware, so that it won't play unauthorized firmwares. If that's not the case, I'd be very happy, as I have that model.
00:08:19dapatilare there tools available to disassemble apple firmware ?
00:10:35BagderI would say that by asking that question makes you not the man to attempt this...

00:13:28dapatilBadger: I can always try. I may not succeed. But I'll definitely learn a lot in the process.
00:13:59Bagderif I'm not mistaking, that firmware is encrypted on disk
00:14:19Bagder"disk" being the nand
00:14:47Bagderbut it has an ARM core so anything that can disassemble ARM code is possible to use

02:40:14ddaltonhow do I tell the difference between an ipod clasic and an ipod video 5.5 gen 80 gb?
02:40:54Shaidthey look completely different
02:41:22Shaidthe classic has a more rounded edge finish
02:41:28waldo.... just wanted to say .. FUCKING HELL this is GREAT software .. thanks a shitload to everyone that coded to get this working .. only got it running an hour and already i LOVE it :)
02:41:50waldooh that .. and ... merry chrismas
02:41:53ddaltonis the clasic thinner than the 5.5 gen 80 gv?
02:42:07Shaidhave you turned it on, ddalton?
02:42:11Shaidthe classic has a new menu system
02:42:17Shaidwith images on the right, and the menu on the left.
02:42:22ddaltonno its a friend's and his blind like me
02:43:24Shaidoh, that could make it harder
02:43:31Shaidthe 5.5g has a flat front
02:43:48ddaltonyep I could tell the difference between the nanos. but haven't found anything on the clasic.
02:43:59ddaltonso what were you saying about the edges?
02:44:13midkay5.5g = flat, plastic front with hard edges.. classic = aluminum front with rounded edges..
02:44:15ddaltonand which one is thinner?
02:44:24midkaythey're about the same thickness.
02:44:45midkayby "the edges" i mean where the front meets the sides..
02:45:07midkayit's a right angle on the 5.5gs, but the classics are rounded.
02:45:38ddaltonwhere are the images on the 5.5 gen?
02:49:35ddaltonI am pretty sure it is a clasic. but any other ways to be 100% sure? he can get sighted help too.

03:13:43psycho_maniacWhat would one think about a PlayersSupported and PlayersNotSupported wiki pages?
03:13:57*zicho is away: I'm busy
03:14:15ddaltonif its not a supported player its not listed on the front page...
03:14:22ddaltonwhats wrong with the list on the home page?
03:14:47psycho_maniacit seems that people arent reading the front page.
03:15:17ddaltonwhats going to make them read a harder to find wiki page then?
03:15:35advcomp2019psycho_maniac, that page could be long
03:16:13psycho_maniacand when people ask in the forums if the new classic ipods are supported you could just link to the PlayersNotSupported wiki page and then lock the thread like a recent thread.
03:16:53ddaltonand if you listed all the unsupported player are you going to talk about every single player like the little creative that came out 5 years ago that is 128 mb?
03:17:14psycho_maniacjust probably the most recent players
03:17:53ddaltonif it doesn't say the ipod clasic is supported on the front page then why would people think it is?
03:18:09psycho_maniacDont ask me ask the people that do ask.
03:18:47ddaltonwhy not just say this? "See for a list of supported players."
03:19:49psycho_maniaci wish the people would actually read and this wouldnt be a problem.
03:20:11ddaltonwell you will still have the same problem with your wiki page.
03:20:31ddaltonyou are telling them to read it. they don't find it. why not tell them to read the front home page?
03:23:22ddaltonwell I was just trying to tell you my opinion. I can't really see it helping unfortunately.

03:24:38psycho_maniacI think ChanServis just a server/computer name not a person.
03:25:18ddaltonI believe it is like nickserv but for channels. it allows the opts to add new opts allows topics to be set and other stuff.
03:25:31webguest14Heh. Don't know why that was there.

03:43:50ddaltonbut I am not sure how to start with the coding. Actually I am still not sure why we didn't just use a player like mplayer and port it. but that doesn't do the noisey rewind and fast fwd. perhaps there was a reason for writing our own playback engine?

03:48:48psycho_maniacI hate when i saw something on a wiki page but cannot find the page itself. This usually happens as i get very bored and read random wiki pages that sound intresting
03:49:09ddaltonI have nothing against the current playback engine. And there is probably a good reason for it. But I would be interested to find it out. And I guess we could port a wma player to rockbox. Im sure there is source code around for that. (I just need to go searching through my distroes repository.)
03:49:16ddaltonor does rb now support wma?
03:49:58psycho_maniacyes it does support wma

05:57:09webguest33Hi, I successfully installed rockbox on my sandisk e200r. Is there a way to uninstall it?
05:57:49***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
05:58:09Mouser_XYes, but why would you want to?
05:58:18Mouser_XIt does support dual-booting, you know.
05:59:06webguest33I know that but it's my sister and I dont think that she will want to have to go into the original firmware to import music.
05:59:15webguest33Any suggestions?
06:00:40Mouser_XThis is how I transfer files/music to my Sansa. While turned off, I instert the USB cable, and then attach to the computer. It turns on itself, and goes into file transfer mode. I transfer files, and once done/charged, I turn it off.
06:01:25Mouser_XWhen I turn it back on, after disconnecting, I'm back in Rockbox. What's wrong with this method? More specifically, why would this be a problem for your sister?
06:01:49webguest33I've never tried that. I'll do it.
06:02:39webguest33It worked!
06:03:16webguest33it went in as a MSC. I've always done playsforsure. how do I transfer in this mode?
06:03:38webguest33to what folder?
06:03:52Mouser_XIf you're going to be using Rockbox, then put it anywhere you want.
06:04:32webguest33Will it organize my music automatically?
06:05:22Mouser_XRockbox *does* have a database system. You can use that if you want. However, Rockbox's default method of selecting tracks, and navigation, is through a directory structure.
06:05:48Mouser_XIn other words, similar to using Windows Explorer to track down specific files on your computer.
06:05:57webguest33I see.
06:06:18Mouser_XIn other words, it's best to organize the files, using directories, as best as you can.
06:06:34Mouser_XBut, if the database is more your style, that will work just fine as well.
06:06:46webguest33I could do it but It's a little hard, i mean, not as convinient for my 10yr old sister.
06:06:56Mouser_XAh, indeed.
06:07:06Mouser_XWell, you'll probably want the database then.
06:07:17webguest33How does that work?
06:07:31Mouser_XIs there already music (that you want) on the Sansa?
06:08:00webguest33Yes. I also have it on my computer.
06:08:25webguest33I know that it check for the music on the sansa firmware and then imports it.
06:08:31Mouser_XAnd, this is important, did you buy it online? If you bought it online (from something like the iTunes store, or whatever they have you use), then it's most likely copy-protected (DRM) and won't work in Rockbox.
06:09:00Mouser_XConsidering that you have the e200r, this is a possability.
06:09:20Mouser_X(It's why I'm trying to verify that it shouldn't be a problem.)
06:09:51webguest33No. I ripped it from my cds.
06:10:33Mouser_XAh, good. That should be fine.
06:12:17Mouser_XRead this:
06:12:50Mouser_X(That's the Rockbox manual, and that specific section should explain the database better than I can. I don't use the database)
06:15:37Mouser_XAlso, to further familiarize yourself with Rockbox and all its available features (which are many), here's a link to the manual in whole:

06:16:49Mouser_XThere's no reason to clog the chat with a greeting. We already know you're here.
06:17:13webguest33hey since the bootloader was patched way I ever want to return it to its original state will i be able to?
06:17:37Mouser_Xwebguest33: Yes, you can. However, *I* don't know how to do that...
06:17:55webguest42Yes i do , I just need to know what things i can do with my Ipod 2nd generation 2 Gig.
06:18:17Mouser_Xwebguest42: Nano?
06:18:36webguest42this one to be precice -
06:19:03webguest33So you're saying that the bootloader will always look for rockbox upon start-up?
06:19:06Mouser_XYou can't install Rockbox on it. It's not supported, which is what the front page of says.
06:19:38Mouser_Xwebguest33: No, you can fully and completely uninstall Rockbox if you want. But *I* don't know how to.
06:19:53webguest42This ipod sucks then :( I looking forward to buying itouch , Is there anyway you can mod/firmware the itouch
06:20:04Mouser_XNot with Rockbox.
06:20:16webguest42whats RockBox do ?
06:20:57Mouser_XPlus more.
06:21:14webguest42one more thing
06:21:25webguest42I was watcing a video , you think with my ipod i can put new games ?
06:21:55Mouser_Xwebguest42: I don't understand the question.
06:22:08Mouser_XYou can do whatever the origina Apple software will allow you to do.
06:22:25webguest42let me rephrase .. With the ipod nano I have , Can i put new games in it ?
06:22:37webguest42additional ones .. and not just brick etc..
06:22:50webguest33See, when I delete the .rockbox folder from the directory and restart the the bootloader informs mee that .rockbox cant be found so to get the sandisk firmware to load I have to turn the player off and hold *left* upon restart. What I really would like to know is if there is a way to turn on the player and have it load the sansa firmware without having to press anything?
06:23:44Mouser_Xwebguest33: Yes, as I said, there *is* a way to -completely- uninstall Rockbox. But I've never had to do so, so *I* don't know how to do it.
06:24:32Mouser_Xwebguest42: If Apple sells games for the iPod Nano, then you can get games from them.
06:24:36webguest33I know that you can uninstall it with the e200 but nothing is ever said about the e200r (they're different).
06:25:03Mouser_Xwebguest33: Try updating the OF.
06:25:20 Quit webguest42 ("CGI:IRC")
06:25:41Mouser_XSpecifically, either use the update on the CD that your Sansa came with, or go to their website, and update with what you find there.
06:25:59Mouser_XIf I'm not mistaken, that will most likely remove whatever Rockbox has done.
06:26:09Mouser_X(excluding the .rockbox folder)
06:27:43webguest33I have the OF. It's within the system folder.
06:28:02webguest33I dont want to update the firmware, just want it to load upon boot.
06:28:09Mouser_Xwebguest33: I'm refering to software that's *not* currently on your Sansa.
06:29:31webguest33Rockbox has altered the bootloader which boots rockbox. I want the bootloader to boot the sansa firmware.
06:30:25Mouser_XI know. I'm attempting to find how to do that.
06:31:20webguest33I know that I cant make it do that by holding *left* but I would want it to load by just pressing the on button. I believe that in order to that i have to restore the original bootloader *or* somehow fool the bootloader into loading the sansa bootloader instead of rockbox.
06:31:25webguest33okay, thanks.
06:32:45webguest33this is step one for my player:
06:33:11Mouser_Xwebguest33: I know what you're saying, and asking. It is possible to do this (you'll lose the ability to boot into Rockbox), but I don't know how to do it. I'm attempting to find out, but I'm not currently seeing it. I think that if you look for an updated version of your firmware, and update the e200, that it should overwrite the bootloader that Rockbox altered. Thus, it should remove that bootloader, getting you back to the OF.
06:33:54Mouser_XEven the same version, updated or not, used on your Sansa should do this, if I'm not mistaken.
06:35:12webguest33can you tell me how to do it?
06:35:23Mouser_XI've told you the best method I know.
06:35:26Mouser_XUpdate the OF.
06:36:22Mouser_XAs I said, I've never needed, or wanted, to do this. Therefore, I don't know how to completely uninstall Rockbox (including the bootloader).
06:36:35Mouser_XThe next best thing, that I'm aware of, is to update the OF.
06:36:44webguest33How can i do that? If I use sandisk's tool it will tell me that i have the lates Firmware and it will not require and update.
06:37:19advcomp2019i think webguest33 needs to use recovery mode
06:37:20webguest33look at this:
06:37:47Mouser_Xadvcomp2019: I've never dealt with it. You're probably right.
06:38:01webguest33tell me advcomp2019
06:38:50webguest33will this workd advcomp:
06:39:42Mouser_Xwebguest33: I was going to link this:
06:39:44advcomp2019webguest33, yea that should work it you use the e200r firmware
06:39:53Mouser_XHowever, you have the e200r, so I don't know if that will work.
06:40:38Mouser_Xadvcomp2019: Thanks for your help...
06:40:49webguest33There's a file there specifically for the e200r
06:41:15webguest33but will it restore the original bootloader?
06:41:32advcomp2019webguest33, hopefully yes
06:41:57webguest33I dont think so because the program just estracts files to players directory thus only replacing files.
06:42:36webguest33ie the firmware and nessecery files. I dont believe that the bootloader can be replace just like that. Can it?
06:42:48Mouser_Xwebguest33: Not so. If you're in recovery mode, those files will be placed on the OF partition. Once booted, those files will be run, and it will auto-update.
06:43:18advcomp2019webguest33, Mouser_X is right
06:44:44webguest33will it is called the "ultimate fix", it couldnt be ultimate if it din't restore bootloader...
06:45:50webguest33I think that it can be done another way.
06:45:56webguest33take a look at this:
06:46:03advcomp2019webguest33, are you talking about the .rom file
06:47:24webguest33the installation say to rename a file OF.mi4 what if I just rename that file pp5022.mi4 and place it in the directory?
06:47:54webguest33wait, that the firmware right.
06:48:05webguest33yes.. ah
06:49:41webguest33what do you mean .rom file?
06:49:58advcomp2019webguest33, never mind if you are getting it
06:51:39webguest33the OF.mi4 is the firmware. the firmeare is okay. all i want to is get the sansa firmware to boot iniatially thus never loading rockbox. which is essentially uninstalling rockbox but i dont know how to do that
06:52:30Mouser_Xwebguest33: As I said, updating the firmware will overwrite the Rockbox bootloader.
06:52:38webguest33if I delete the .rockbox folder the bootloader tells me that .rockbox is missing. thus i need to restore the unpatched bootloader.
06:52:57webguest33so how can i update the firmware?
06:53:08Mouser_Xadvcomp2019 and I have told you 2 different ways.
06:53:10advcomp2019webguest33, just put the sansa pp5022.mi4 in recovery mode then unplug the cable
06:55:08webguest33where can i get the pp5022.mi4?
06:55:12Mouser_Xwebguest33: In other words, while in recovery mode (if I recall correctly, the screen will be black/blank, and the wheel light will be on), put the necessary files onto your player.
06:55:22webguest33should i use the file that i renamed OF.mi4?
06:55:45advcomp2019webguest33, the sansa pp5022.mi4 is the same as the OF.mi4
06:58:49webguest33used this:
06:59:30webguest33I went into recovery mode and extracted the file that i downloaded from that site.
06:59:44Mouser_XWhich is basically what we said.
06:59:52webguest33it extracted 2 files. one must have been the pp5022.mi4
07:00:05webguest33any guess on the second?
07:00:22webguest33prob the version.txt...?
07:00:45advcomp2019do not worry about the version.txt
07:01:06webguest33okay. i extracted to my desktop and...
07:01:27webguest33pp5022.mi4 and sansa.fmt
07:01:39Mouser_XAh. It formated your Sansa as well.
07:01:56Mouser_X(Which isn't a surprise.)
07:02:22Mouser_X"sansa.fmt" = empty file. The OF just needs the name.
07:02:39Mouser_X(That is, IIUC.)
07:03:06advcomp2019yea that is if you do not want to save anything that is on the sansa
07:04:31webguest33well my sansa is back to normal (no rockbox). I know it's great but it's just not for my 10yr old sister.
07:04:35Mouser_XIt's obviously too late in this instance, but you (webguest33) did say you have all the important stuff on your PC already, right?
07:04:39webguest33I use it though!
07:07:15Mouser_XMy nieces got some Sansa e250s for Christmas. I *wanted* to install Rockbox on them, but I figured that, one being 8 or 9, and the other being about 5, Rockbox probably wasn't for them...
07:07:55DogBoyso you just need to jack them for the sansas
07:08:00*Mouser_X has a Gigabeat F40, and two Sansa e250s.
07:08:21Mouser_X(I'm considering reselling one of my e250s.
07:09:17webguest33I have and F40 and and S30 (not supported)
07:10:14*Mouser_X wants a Gigabeat S...
07:10:29Mouser_X(Especially if Rockbox supported it.)
07:10:43Mouser_XThe S has video out, and USB hosting.
07:11:01webguest33When my syster got her e250r today it was half full and I couldent figure out why.
07:11:31webguest33Still cant. It only had 20 songs and 1 video.
07:11:46webguest33It was less thank 75mb is stuff.
07:11:53Mouser_XIt's empty now, isn't it?
07:12:03webguest33All I know is that now it's empty.
07:12:11Mouser_XThat's good.
07:12:24advcomp2019yea that is what the sansa.fmt did
07:12:47webguest33Yea but why the hell would sandisk preload the 2gb player with 1gb of stuff?
07:12:50Mouser_XThat's what I thought, but I wanted to be sure. It would have been mighty strange if it wasn't...
07:13:38webguest33But what could it have been because i looked through all the folder and there sure wasnt 1gb of stuff.
07:14:39advcomp2019webguest33, they was rax files in the system folder somewhere
07:18:07webguest33man anybut ipod is useful.
07:18:13webguest33you guys 2.

07:52:42Jaythats wat im reading

08:06:30jharuits a dap made by sandisk
08:06:49jharu2nd only to ipod in popularity
08:08:31Jaynow im extracting the fonts
08:08:51Mouser_XJay: Did you do the ipodpatcher thing?
08:09:01Jaydoing it now
08:09:06Mouser_XYou *do* need to install the bootloader, after all.
08:09:33jharuMouser_X: is instellin rockbox different in different daps?
08:09:59Jay1 question once i install the boot loasder thing would i still be able to boot back to the original apple fw
08:10:00Mouser_XGigabeat is really easy. Sansa is pretty easy.
08:10:19Jayi meant once i install rockbox
08:10:22Mouser_XJay: Yes. Rockbox does dual-booting on most targets.
08:10:47Jaynice ok
08:10:56Mouser_X(As of yet, dual-booting isn't available on the Gigabeat, though I have no idea why you'd want to use the OF of the Gigabeat.)
08:11:32jharuso hes dap is gigabeat...
08:11:45Mouser_XYes, I have a Gigabeat, and a Sansa.
08:11:55Jaywhays dap or gigabeat
08:11:57Mouser_XJay has an iPod Video 30 GB.
08:12:04Jayyup yup
08:12:45jharudap is the term used here for your player. eg ipod, sansa, gigabeat.
08:13:31Jaydigital audio player right?
08:13:42Jayok i did the bootloader thing so im done right
08:14:02Mouser_Xjharu: As I said, installation methods differ depending on your target. Read the installation methods of the various targets to get a better idea, but the Gigabeat, for example, requires you to rename a file, and replace it with a Rockbox one.
08:14:33Mouser_XJay: I'd say yes, but that's mostly assuming. What does the instruction manual say?
08:15:21Jay"isconnect your player in the usual way. The bootloader is now installed"
08:15:31Jayand thats it
08:15:33jharuMouser_X: so is it true gigabeat supports gba games?
08:15:35Mouser_XWell, than, give it a try.
08:15:43Mouser_Xjharu: No.
08:15:57Mouser_XNo Rockbox target can play GBA games. GB and GBC, yes.
08:16:06Jaywoot woot
08:16:29Jayi did it
08:16:40jharu?! there is someone who posted on my thread that gigabeat can take a gba game...
08:16:57Jayhey this looks kind of ugly
08:17:00Mouser_Xjharu: That person either made a typo, or is wrong.
08:17:08Mouser_XJay: Change it.
08:17:14jharucongatulation jay! now you can pay mouser... :D
08:17:14Mouser_XRead the manual to figure out how.
08:18:03Jayhey do ya know any plugins and themes and any other features 4 rockbox thats a musthave
08:18:05Mouser_XJay: Here's a start (but it might not help much without reading the manual) -
08:18:25 Quit ctaylorr (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
08:18:26jharuno... uh... it says "except for the gigabeat no other dap has enough horsepower to run a gba rom"
08:18:31Mouser_XJay: Once installed, Rockbox has all the stuff with it. Nothing requires downloading.
08:18:42Jayoh ok ice
08:19:14jharuJay: unless you want patches
08:19:15Mouser_Xjharu: That *might* be true, but I'd find it difficult to believe. My 333 has a hard time emulating the *audio* to the GBA, let alone the entire GBA.
08:19:59Jaywat can i use patches 4
08:20:00Mouser_XJay: If you're interested patches, you'll have to read the wiki on them. That gets you into the realm of "unsupported" and therefore, not much help here.
08:20:15Mouser_XJay: IrcGuidlines please.
08:20:16Jayoh ok

11:02:21BagderI'm basically saying that it doesn't matter much who was working on it

11:03:16Casainhohe likes a lot the idea o RB :-)
11:03:28Casainhowe have now almost the same goals :-)
11:03:56BagderI love how their front page is ... so outdated
11:04:04Bagder"DSPdap is different from other MP3 player projects because it uses a programmable DSP as its CPU instead of using a microcontroller and a hardware MP3 decoder chip. Because of this, it is capable of playing not only MP3 but all popular digital audio formats"
11:04:30Bagderthat might've been almost true 2004 but certainly isn't today
11:06:11Casainhoeheh :-)
11:06:58Casainhothats why the guy is looking for upgrade the DSPdap... and I talked wiht him about Rockbox :-) - I think both can win a lot :-)

11:09:47Casainhowell, I realy thin that AVR32 is ok, because have both of that worlds....
11:09:49Bagderbut yeah, if you want full frame rate video on your player I guess you need a dsp
11:10:10Bagder... on your poor monocrome lcd ;-)
11:10:30Slasherihmm, i don't think dsp+avr is that good
11:10:35CasainhoBagder: I wrote as objectives: "Audio player and in future versions also recorder capabilities (not multimedia player, video or games);"
11:10:47Slasherii would probably use the old trusty coldfire
11:10:53BagderCasainho: with those (crappy) lcds?
11:11:19Bagderit seems you're trying to future-proof things now for a player that won't do those things
11:11:30Bagderand that's premature optimizations that shouldn't be made, imho

11:13:21Casainhono!! just AVR32 have also DSP instructions, and because dsp instrutions seems good for saving battery power, or I am wrong?
11:13:44CasainhoAVR32 should not need to use DSP for makes RB working....
11:13:52*amiconn remembers the unfinished gmini port...
11:14:02BagderI can't tell much about those avr32 things as I'm not that into those
11:14:19amiconn(regarding dsp and rockbox)
11:14:59BagderCasainho: does the dsp part have a particular name or is it just avr32 dsp?
11:15:00Casainhoamiconn: I don't know what you pretend to say, I don't know nothing about gmini
11:15:19Slasherii have used 8-bit avr's for a long time but never tried that 32bit one
11:15:40CasainhoBagder: is just AVR32, wich have also DSP, and java....
11:15:51Bagderyes but DSP is a word like CPU
11:15:56Bagderit doesn't say _what_ DSP
11:15:57Slasherisounds bad
11:16:11Bagderand it can't "have" java really
11:17:22Casainhowell, I don't have any experience in AVR32 or DSP, just some little in AVR 8 bits :-)
11:18:05Casainhohowever there are others that agrees with AVR32, others that said that will be in project.
11:18:12amiconnThe gmini 1xx/2xx have a dsp as their main processor. A bitch to code for compared to a cpu
11:18:39Slasherithen just forget it.. too complex
11:19:16BagderCasainho: yes, but I've not seen anyone actually already involved in Rockbox saying much...
11:19:41Bagderit might not be a bad thing, but it also makes very little rockbox experience that tells
11:20:13 Quit amiconn (" bbl")
11:21:26Bagderis it the AT32AP7000 you're currently considering?
11:21:33Casainhoamiconn: AVR32 is a cpu with GCC port, dsp instructions can be used or not, directly on GCC
11:22:22CasainhoBagder: no one in RB looks interest in doing a hardware player, will It be with AVR32, ARM or other... :-(
11:22:38Casainhoyes, that AT32AP7000
11:22:43BagderCasainho: no, but lots of us are offering ideas and advice
11:23:03Casainhookok, I know and I apreciate :-)
11:23:04SlasheriCasainho: if i would have more time, i would be interested
11:23:32BagderCasainho: you know anywhere where this DSP part is described/documented?
11:23:57Casainhoyes, in datasheet and in aplication notes - on oficial page :-)
11:24:07BagderI'm trying to find it but I can't
11:24:18BagderI looked in the data sheet, in the arch overview and more
11:24:37Bagderthey just speak of "dsp extensions" without detailing it so far
11:24:46Bagderwhat doc exactly?
11:25:28Casainhowell, I forgot the name of doc - I remember that they said the extensions like instrucutioons to C...
11:25:42Casainhoto use directly on GCC
11:26:33CasainhoIn addition to support standard C/C++ source code, GCC for AVR32 has some extra AVR32 specific features to allow easier access to the optimized AVR32 instruction set and architecture. This applies particularly to the Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and parallel execution instructions (Single Instruction Multiple Data – SIMD). They come in the form of attributes and builtins to the GNU Compiler.
11:26:51BagderI was interested in DSP details, not sales-speak ;-)
11:27:06Casainhoaybe this one:
11:28:15Bagderit looks more like the DSP part is undocumented
11:28:42Bagderthat doc describe how to make gcc use builtin functions for avr provided by gcc
11:28:49Bagderthey might use the dsp of course
11:29:06Casainhois there something missing?
11:29:13Bagderyes, details about the DSP
11:29:27Bagderat least I can't find it, it may well exist somewhere

13:59:39countrymonkeywhat is the difference between 8359 and 8369?
14:00:14moosbetter, to let's the author finish his patch before commit, I commited the first part of spanish translation, but that's better to have full translations...
14:02:37countrymonkeyok. I'll finish it.
14:03:03moosonce you done this I or someone else will commit it
14:03:42waldois it 'normal' that when i conneect the usb cable to my sansa c240 when rockbox is running, the thing freezes completely and i have to pull out the battery ?
14:03:57countrymonkeySounds good. But why cannot the 1st part be committed now?
14:04:54waldoit functions fine when connect the cable with the player is turned off .. it then comes online and starts the sanddisk 'connected'
14:05:45VoltageXfor when someone comes around who knows about this: PictureFlow does not crash when database is not initialised, crashes on H340 when the database is enabled - i.e. the plugin loads
14:05:48mooscountrymonkey: don't be impatient :), please finnish and all the voice translation will be commited in one time. Do you have still lot of strings to translate?

14:09:47moosif that can reassure you, I can assigne the patch to me if you want?
14:10:07countrymonkeybigtime. Will you be willing to commit it?
14:10:33moosthat way you can be sure that once you finnish it, your patch will be commited

19:48:04jhMikeSLlorean: That's a ludicrous value. Most use much shorter groups (NTSC DVS requires 15/GOP).

19:54:30jhMikeSLlorean: I don't know who wrote that FAQ but they should be hanged :) ffmpeg also doesn't like to use b-frames. I'd suggest about once/second on the outside which seems good enough in most cases and definitely use b-frames.
19:55:49jhMikeSLlorean: I'm thinking I'll program in some point of giving up on being frame-precise if it will take too long to prewind the decoder so it's at least not obnoxious on slow targets.
19:55:50amiconnRegarding mpeg2 - iirc the 'simple' profile doesn't allow B frames, only the 'main' profile does
19:56:39jhMikeSamiconn: well, perhaps that's it. I hadn't looked into profiles since it's not really relevant to decoding anything.
19:56:48LloreanjhMikeS: So, gop == framerate, and something I read suggests bf 2?
19:57:34amiconnSo we should definitely recommend main profile for encoding
19:58:07Soapare B frames more CPU intensive to decode?
19:58:08***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
19:58:56rasherThe mencoder example in the wiki seems to be wrong in some way related to b-frames.
20:00:24rasherVideos encoded with the suggested settings would skip, but removing vmax_b_frames=16:vb_strategy=2 would produce videos that don't skip
20:00:42jhMikeSSoap: They tend not to be in my observation and are the only frame that can be skipped arbitrarily in the decoder itself.
20:01:46jhMikeSLloread: I think that refers to the the number of b's between I and P at most (a guess at the option meaning).
20:02:41LloreanjhMikeS: Yeah, I have no idea the literal meaning either. That's what I'd guess at too.
20:03:27jhMikeSLlorean: I guess GOP = framerate is a good compromise. Ususally it's more often. I suppose it depends on if your priority is fast random access vs. better compression.

20:06:09LloreanjhMikeS: Should I do, something like twice the framerate for the PP targets, and something else for Gigabeats?

20:07:33 Join phossy [0] (
20:07:39jhMikeSLlorean: I'd recommend shorter GOP for slower targets. 1/2 framerate for that. The 1xframerate figure seems a good general compromise for all of them though.
20:08:34LloreanjhMikeS: Well, the encoding profiles will be per-target, so I can do 1/2 framerate for some and 1xframerate for others.
20:09:29*Llorean will give the patch a try after lunch and see if it noticeably breaks anything.

20:10:50jhMikeSLlorean: If the rate is 15fps and not 30, then you can have it once ever 2 seconds and winding it up will be the same speed.
20:11:03Cannolii was repartitioning my 5.5g winpod and i deleted the firmware partition and remade it. now ipodpatcher doesnt locate the ipod, how can i load a backed up firmware onto the ipod without ipodpatcher?
20:11:23LloreanjhMikeS: But on targets where we need a 15fps framerate, the CPU is probably a good deal slower, so a lower framecount is good?
20:11:32LloreanWell, I guess the CPU isn't really slower
20:11:33Cannolithe ipod says i have to hook it up to itunes and restore

20:12:06linuxstbCannoli: Are you using Linux?
20:12:18LloreanjhMikeS: Well, I have a Nano when I get home, once you've got an actual method of seeking, I'll just experiment with values to try to pick the highest value that doesn't feel slow?
20:13:01jhMikeSLlorean: Actually this is pretty fast with little noticeable delay on PP with 15 frames in a GOP.
20:13:12Cannolilinuxstb: doesnt work
20:13:27LloreanSo I'll just pick 15 then for PP, and maybe 30 for Gigabeat?

21:05:57khermansfirst loaded up rockbox and it went through my itunes db
21:06:20Soapmanually copy them over to the directory structure of your player.
21:06:21khermansi then converted the itunes db using itdb2tc from source on linux
21:06:26Mouser_XWhat player? More specifically, what OS are you running? Either way, you need to connect it in MSC mode (IIRC), and simply drag+drop the files to your player. It should be recognized as an external drive.
21:06:33khermansbut now i also want to add these new files
21:06:49Soapyou will not be able to use iTunes or iTunes database programs to copy over such files.
21:06:55khermansSoap, right
21:07:03khermansSoap, but i mean i can use both at the same time correct?
21:07:07Mouser_XSo, just copy them to your player, as Soap said.,
21:07:29LloreanjhMikeS: Your patch doesn't compile, for me
21:07:34Mouser_XYou can have the files on your iPod, but your iPod won't be able to read them.

21:07:58khermansMouser_X, they are not DRMd, why wont they be read?
21:08:01Mouser_XSorry, the iPod OF won't be able to read them.
21:08:10Mouser_XBecause they're SPX files.
21:08:19Mouser_XiPod doesn't play SPX files.

21:27:59jhMikeSrasher: that possibility makes sense to me as well
21:28:32rasherAh no, there they are again. I'll try on target, and create a wavdump if I get the clicks again.
21:28:35webguest21I may be out of place, but have installed RockBox on 5.5G iPod, and it wont read menus in database
21:29:08LloreanjhMikeS: Interestingly enough, both of those were encoded with -g 300, because I was just using a semi-modified command line from my mpeg4 encodes (which was based on an "I have no clue what these parameters do, people seem to suggest this" methodology)

21:29:25LloreanjhMikeS: By "both" I mean "the two videos I just tried with practically instant seek/resume"
21:30:01pikhqHey; just got a Sanse e260 running Rockbox. . . Anyways, I have a divide by zero error in Rockbox, and can't seem to get it to restart.
21:30:05pikhqAny help?
21:30:21rasherpikhq: hold the power button for 15 seconds
21:30:25linuxstbHold the power button for about 10-15 seconds
21:30:39Mouser_Xpikhq: Or hold it for 30, if 15 wasn't enough.
21:31:06*pikhq now just wonders why viewing "Recently Added" in the database caused that
21:32:03jhMikeSLlorean: perhaps on gigabeat it'll blast through it fast enough. on lesser devices the delay will be noticeable though and even annoying if GOPs are 300 frames.
21:33:56LloreanjhMikeS: I'll pick saner values. Even ffmpeg doesn't suggest 300 for mpeg 2, I just accidentally used it because I had no clue. :)
21:34:19khermansLlorean, i think you were right −− the reference speexenc encoder must have issues at 16khz
21:34:35khermansi used speexdec to convert to wav and the same hiss was there :-9
21:34:57khermansdamn ... rockbox is very nice indeed nevertheless!
21:35:05khermanscan i make a donation?
21:35:09Lloreankhermans: It might be the bitrate you're encoding at.
21:35:12khermanslike $20 or something
21:35:22LloreanTotem and VLC might have some form of post-processing attempt.
21:35:31linuxstbkhermans: Sure, there's a paypal donation link on the website

23:03:03khermanslinuxstb, is there an issue with wav->aac encoding using faac on linux?
23:03:19billenium12also is there another way i can get a compiler for rockbox?
23:04:01khermansbillenium12, get a download manager or use wget -c

23:06:07amiconnXavierGr: Btw, the tower was actually quite solid - the iAudio docks (front part) help a lot, and also the fact that the fullsize iPods perfectly fit the cut-outs in the archos rubber corners

23:13:26Mouser_XI'm not anywhere near familiar enough with AAC to know what that means... Sorry.

23:13:50 Join fasmaie [0] (
23:13:58Mouser_XI don't use AAC, but I figured perhaps if you could get more info, it'd help narrow down the problem.
23:14:12khermansMouser_X, i think it is a decoding issue
23:14:20Mouser_XNo idea.
23:14:25khermansMouser_X, how to find out?
23:15:08mokkurkalvemust not aac files be put in mp4 container? raw aac files are probably not played. You cannot only rename aac to mp4 if it's not actually in mp4 container.... also there is many profiles rockbox don't play. iTunes encoded LC-AAC CBR files seemst to work, but last time I tried some Nero encoded LC-AAC VBR files they didn't play. Don't really use aac so I haven't tried much though....
23:16:04khermansmokkurkalve, faac makes RAW non-mp4?
23:16:19khermanshrmm ... well vlc and totem and mplayer all play the RAW AAC
23:16:37khermansis it impossible for Rockbox to?
23:16:59khermansanyways, i think there is an faad option to make mp4 with -a
23:17:01mokkurkalveread the man pages, I dunno what it does by default.... I think it can do both
23:17:27mokkurkalveI don't think RB plays raw aac
23:17:42mokkurkalvenot sure though
23:17:50Lloreankhermans: Rockbox expect MP4 containers
23:18:03rigelaac is lame anyhow
23:18:07LloreanSince they're *supposed* to be in one, and there's not really a proper way to tag them otherwise.
23:18:30khermansLlorean, i see what you mean
23:18:43khermansLlorean, the raw aac doesnt have the bits for file identification
23:18:58khermansi guess i should have used the -w option in faac
23:19:20khermansLlorean, i was just telling morkkukalve that vlc, totem, and mplayer all play raw AAC

23:19:31khermansdidnt know if there was a lib to rip that functionality from
23:19:53khermansLlorean, i dont mind adding that feature to rb myself
23:19:57LloreanRockbox doesn't support every container / format possible.
23:20:09khermansbut its best to ask here first about the implementation
23:20:10LloreanFor example, you can encode all sorts of audio in mkv containers, but we don't support them at all, I believe.
23:20:46LloreanIt should be able to contain nearly any sort of audio stream, being just a container format.
23:21:20mokkurkalveRB don't support Matroska, I'm sure
23:21:30khermanscoll so ill just make an mp4 container
23:21:35LloreanAAC audio on its own shouldn't really be anything but an MP4 container, being mpeg 4 audio. My point was just that trying to support every codec / container mix isn't really feasible or wanted.
23:22:05khermansLlorean, i guess i was just so surprised that Rockbox supported SPX that I went crazy assuming it supported much more!
23:22:49LloreanSPX is "speex in an ogg container"
23:22:51 Quit billenium12 (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
23:22:55LloreanWe support formats in their native container.
23:22:57khermansLlorean, yup
23:23:15khermansi am glad to have ogg support
23:24:59LloreanMy understanding is that faac is a rather sub-par AAC encoder anyway.
23:25:32khermansLlorean, :-(
23:25:36LloreanBut Vorbis, FLAC and Speex generally meet all my current needs anyway, and anything you're likely to find provided elsewhere is going to be MP3 or a proper MP4/AAC anyway.
23:25:39khermansLlorean, i got nothing else on linux
23:26:01LloreanWhy do you need AAC specifically, though?
23:26:01linuxstbYou can use Nero's free (as in beer) AAC encoder with Wine.
23:26:17khermansLlorean, i am a huge open source afficianado :-)
23:26:29khermansLlorean, oh i dont −− OGG is great, but for low-bitrate audiobooks
23:26:35khermansi thinkj AAC does better
23:26:37LloreanOGG is a container.
23:26:41LloreanSpx does better than AAC.
23:27:04khermanslinuxstb, haha no way !
23:27:13khermanslinuxstb, i wouldnt steep that low
23:27:18LloreanHE-AAC *might* reach semi-competitive qualities at low enough bitrates, but HE-AAC requires a significant cpu overhead.
23:27:27khermanslinuxstb, give me freedom or give me death −− i pay for it
23:27:34Lloreankhermans: Then you can't use AAC
23:27:49LloreanIf you're going to be so gung-ho about open source software, I'm surprised you're willing to use such a patent encumbered format.
23:28:02khermansLlorean, hehe yes aac/mp3 is bad

23:34:24Mouser_XWow, I wasn't expecting that.
23:34:31LloreanThere's a patch in the tracker that lets you select a start point to within a second, very quickly, now.
23:34:59Mouser_XI was reading here, and it sounded like it might be coming, but I always figured seeking was to CPU-intensive to be feasable.
23:35:01LloreanIt's basically ready for seeking, but he wants to make sure the patch itself works before he adds controls and user interface hoo-ha for the actual seeking
23:35:20LloreanHow CPU intensive it's going to be is partially going to depend on how you encode the videos.
