02:00:16JThundleycool, I read that
02:00:30JThundleyI don't use rockbox on an ipod, but I'd like to read your article

02:18:05LloreanThanks. :)
02:23:29LloreanjhMikeS: Just a note, tests with 320x240 video encoded at the 100 value that ffmpeg suggests still is nearly instant, so at least for the gigabeat, I think anything a user wants will probably work well enough.

02:41:50jhMikeSfile about 1GB and there's no perceivable delay.
02:42:58LloreanjhMikeS: This one's about 2 hours long, 320x240, 670MB
02:43:07LloreanNo perceivable delay beyond the disk spin
02:43:11jhMikeSLlorean: These parameters that ffmpeg suggests are just whacky. I never enounter professional stuff that uses such long GOP.
02:43:46jhMikeSLlorean: My huge tester was a SVCD file straight up
02:51:49jhMikeSI suppose I'll put some limiting on video I-frame/GOP searches at some point just so sub-optimal videos aren't annoying

03:30:11jhMikeSLlorean: It works quickly on e200, H10 and 3g if GOPs are frequent enough.
03:31:01khermansthe draft article
03:31:24khermansand script i threw together for one-click installation for common video ipods
03:31:24LloreanjhMikeS: Well, I'm trying to write new presets for WinFF, since ffmpeg's expected parameters have changed a bit, and there's a new version of WinFF and everything
03:32:15jhMikeSLlorean: after using WinFF I'm seriously considering just doing my own. It's rather quirky in a bad way imo.
03:32:39LloreanIt's far from perfect, but it's a lot less complicated than all these other all-in-one solutions with four million options.
03:33:19khermansLlorean, i found this method of installation to be painless, but rockbox manual installation can be done if the readers like
03:33:32khermanshope you guys have input on the article
03:33:42khermanstentative title is "OGG, FLAC, and more on your iPod!"
03:33:56Lloreankhermans: We don't recommend people use other methods of installation, since those often break if our method changes. We're moving people to the RBUtility, as it's mostly usable now
03:34:00khermanswill appear on in 48 hours
03:34:11khermansLlorean, i figured as much
03:34:23khermansin the article, i mention that this only works for 30, 60. and 80 gb Ipods
03:34:33khermansand that it will simply work on those models
03:34:41khermansif they have something else, move to manual installation on the site
03:34:46Lloreankhermans: Does it distinguish between the 30gb build and the 60/80 gb build?
03:34:53khermansbut a full article on manual installation seemed a bit much
03:34:55khermansLlorean, no
03:35:12khermansLlorean, but i read in the shell variable
03:35:39khermanswhatever they type −− if it is 60/80 it is same function
03:35:39LloreanjhMikeS: If you do decide to do your own whatever, if it's usable it might be a good addition for RBUtil.
03:36:05khermansLlorean, do you have a simple automated installer, because although I may be able to futz around and install Rockbox, i think a lot of the LJ reader-base are quite naive
03:36:23LloreanOne significant annoyance I have with ffmpeg is that it doesn't have a a "maintain proportions" option of some sort. I really feel I should be able to set a maximum width and height, and let it scale the video to fit within them. Other than that, I'd be quite happy with RBUtil just offering a basic front end for it, with hard coded presets, and you just pick your player
03:36:37LloreanBut as it stands, for ffmpeg, you'd still have to pick the aspect ratio of your input file, or end up with weird looking output.
03:36:51Lloreankhermans: RBUtility is the automated installer
03:36:58Lloreankhermans: ipodpatcher is the more complicated method
03:37:07khermansLlorean, cant you just use -sameq ?
03:37:09LloreanRBUtility can, with many players, automatically detect the player and model.
03:37:21khermansLlorean, what are pros and cons?
03:37:28Lloreankhermans: -sameq affects the bitrate. Basically it just makes it use the lowest possible quantization value, and hope for the best.
03:37:47 Join Clem2 [0] (
03:38:04Lloreankhermans: "Pros" are "Requires little or no technical knowledge." Cons are "If it can't automatically detect where your player is, you may actually find the manual install slightly easier"
03:38:06khermansLlorean, well i also noticed that no addons are automatically installed
03:38:20khermansLlorean, themes, games, etc
03:38:26LloreanGames are automatically installed
03:38:31LloreanAll the official plugins are there
03:38:31 Quit ze ("xmas hardware installation")
03:38:41khermansLlorean, oh let me check which plugins i pulled in
03:38:45LloreanRBUtility gives you the option to download themes, the font package, etc.
03:39:07khermansLlorean, fonts
03:39:19khermansahh interesting...
03:39:38LloreanThe manual installation process requires you to download fonts separately. They change so rarely, and are such a large percentage of the archive size that we don't feel every download needs to include them
03:40:31khermansLlorean, you include Doom in the automated instakller as an option?
03:40:35khermansi am about to test this one
03:40:46LloreanI don't know of the freedoom package is listed as an option, honestly
03:41:57khermans"Warning: Autodetection is unable to distinguish between the Ipod 30 GB and 60 GB / 80 GB models and defaults to the 30 GB model. This will usually work but you might want to check the detected value, especially if you experience problems with Rockbox."
03:42:11khermanswould have b0rked my 30gb i think
03:42:19khermansi mean, i have an 80gb

04:03:08khermansLlorean, following this
04:03:17LloreanI personally haven't played with the utility yet. I know it's the recommended method, but I can't get over the old habit of doing everything manually
04:03:46LloreanI would imagine that page hasn't been updated by someone who knows how the dependency on the speex encoder for talk file generation works.
04:04:22LloreanOr perhaps rbspeexenc needs to be added to the checkout. I don't really know how SVN itself works, if it's folder based, or tag based somehow, or what
04:04:23khermansLlorean, i can just edit the Makefile of course

05:51:41psycho_maniacIm just curious. Do the files work on your computer?
05:51:45LloreanThat's just the output stream type
05:51:47khermansSelected audio codec: [faad] afm: faad (FAAD AAC (MPEG-2/MPEG-4 Audio) decoder)
05:52:02LloreanThat still doesn't tell the profile
05:52:05khermansISO: File Type Major Brand: ISO/IEC 14496-1 (MPEG-4 system) v2
05:52:23LloreanLook, pasting everything in here won't help
05:52:28LloreanJust google up some method of identifying
05:52:44khermansi didnt know if you knew the info for that
05:52:50LloreanI know some people were getting LTP AACs out of Faac, or claiming to, and at a ridiculously low bitrate like that it might default to it
05:53:17LloreanI already said I don't know how to identify it. Unless something says clearly "Profile:" or "XX-AAC" I'm unlikely to know
05:54:19LloreanWhy not try using a realistic bitrate. 96kbps or so?
05:54:36khermansLlorean, well its audiobook
05:54:40LloreanThen use speex
05:54:48khermansLlorean, i did −− bugs remember :-)
05:54:54khermans@ 16000 khz
05:55:09LloreanAre you sure it's a bug, and not simply an artifact of the low bitrate?
05:55:19LloreanDo you honestly expect something not tuned for speech to actually have better sounding audio at that bitrate?
05:55:20khermanshowever, the quality sounded pretty good for OGG/Vorbis 32kbps mono
05:55:47khermansLlorean, i would think that by tuning the freq specifier that wouldn't matter
05:55:59khermansi can cut off signals above 8khz
05:56:00LloreanThe frequency specifier?
05:56:13LloreanYou mean a highpass filter?
05:56:16 Quit fasmaie (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
05:56:21khermansLlorean, right
05:56:24LloreanOr lowpass filter rather
05:56:41khermansi can remove the highs that are out of voice range
05:56:45khermansthats a big savings
05:57:04LloreanYeah, but that doesn't make the codec any better at encoding speech.
05:57:24khermansLlorean, i would have to agree
05:57:46LloreanYou should experiment further with speech, I can get perfectly acceptable output out of it in Rockbox.
05:57:59khermansLlorean, what setting are you using ?
05:58:01LloreanErr, speex
05:58:07LloreanDon't remember, I encoded them nearly a year ago

05:58:34khermansi tried 16khz mon but didnt fly
05:58:40khermanssome bugs
05:58:44LloreanNo, it was 16khz mono
05:58:57khermansyou did the same and saw no problems?
05:59:03khermansand you used sppexenc ?
05:59:24khermans8bit or 16bit frames?
05:59:30khermansfrom WAV
05:59:34Llorean16 bit
05:59:39khermanshrmm, i used 8bit
05:59:46khermans-b option from sox
06:00:05khermansthey sounded fine in the output WAV
06:00:08LloreanIf you're willing to go up to 32kbps in AAC, do a 32kbps Speex
06:00:22khermansthats essentially what i did
06:00:38khermansbut perhaps some other option i chose was casuing issues
06:00:48khermansi know i did −−vad
06:00:53khermansand −−vbr
06:01:09khermanswhich could be partly the cause i suppose
06:01:26LloreanThe only parameters I used were the one for wideband, and the one for quality, if I recall
06:01:35LloreanThe input was already a 16-bit mono wav.
06:02:04khermansLlorean, you chose quality over a VBR specifier?
06:02:09khermanshrmm ill try that instead
06:02:28khermansi was under the impression that VBR was superior, unless you were streaming
06:02:43khermansbecause then some high data blocks would snag CPU
06:02:51khermansand cause latency
06:03:04Lloreankhermans: The codec is intended for you to pick a quality.
06:03:05khermansit was noted in the docs too
06:03:17LloreanJust like vorbis.
06:03:28khermansdefault is 8
06:03:33khermansi set -b 32
06:03:37LloreanI think I used 6, but I really cant remember.
06:03:40LloreanDon't set a bitrate.
06:03:51khermansLlorean, oh really?
06:03:55LloreanYou're forcing it into a box you don't need to.
06:04:00khermansLlorean, does the encoder autodetect?
06:04:05khermanshow can it know!??
06:04:08LloreanThat's what quality is.
06:04:27LloreanIt'll pick bitrates as it goes appropriate for encoding those samples at that relative quality
06:04:29khermansi guess i never looked at it that way
06:04:36LloreanIf your file ends up too big, try a lower quality setting.
06:04:44khermansvery interesting
06:04:49khermansthis could be the cause of all my issues
06:04:57khermansand this would go for any codec?
06:05:17LloreanNot necessarily
06:05:21khermansi mean, back in the lame days, literally, i dont remember quality settings
06:05:26LloreanBut vorbis/speex especially
06:05:32khermansi remember setting either my CBR or VBR
06:05:34Lloreanlame has always had things like preset-standard
06:05:55khermansLlorean, very good to know though
06:06:20LloreanSetting a bitrate is only really useful if you have a target final file size.
06:06:28khermansLlorean, so i assume that this quality setting encodes and compares the output wav form to the input wave form to see how decrepit it is
06:06:48khermansso, for .8 would signify 80% retention of original wve form?
06:06:54LloreanIt'll pretty much always get inferior results overall because the encoder will be allocating bits based on an attempt to hit a target filesize, rather than attempting to hit a target quality for each frame.
06:06:56khermansis this correct?
06:07:05LloreanThe numbers don't really represent anything absolute
06:07:12LloreanIt's just like the 1 to 10 on a volume knob.
06:07:21LloreanThey just mean "worse" or "better"
06:07:26khermansLlorean, usually it is linear :-)
06:07:39khermansLlorean, well i am no dummy,. just to this
06:07:42LloreanLinear, but they don't represent the original loudness in any way, just the range of your system.
06:07:53Llorean10 on your speakers may be considerably louder than the song was played.
06:09:00LloreanSpeex is unlikely to ever reproduce 100% accurately the original wavform, it's the nature of lossy compression: it discards things.
06:09:07khermansi have written visual detection algorithms and variations on gaussian filtering and canny/sobel edge detection
06:09:38khermansof course, i understand the lossy issue
06:09:45khermansif I wanted something losless, i would use flac
06:10:40LloreanBut really, the speex files I still have sound fine, except a couple where I had to do a lossy->lossy transcode, and there's already some artifacts
06:11:46khermansLlorean, well actually this particular sample is from lossy (mp3) original
06:12:09khermansi guess that gives the encoder a significant disadvantage
06:12:43ddaltonhey do I have any chance at getting the docs from ams for the AS3525?

06:49:14saratogaddalton: until you've got a way to update the firmware on teh V2s, having the datasheet probably won't help a whole lot
06:49:40saratogaits just going to tell you how to initialize things, how dma works, interupts, etc, and thats not going to be much use until you can actually upload code
06:50:10saratogaLlorean: whenever someone complains about faac in rockbox we should just tell them to stop using faac
06:50:30saratogaits literally worse then every other lossy codec we support in rockbox
06:50:54saratogatheres no reason to ever use it
06:52:22Lloreansaratoga: Is there any other linux-native AAC encoder?
06:52:36saratogai don't know
06:52:46saratogaprobably not
06:52:50LloreanOur decoder is problematic enough anyway
06:52:57saratogatheres hardly any aac encoders actually, let alone good ones
06:53:05LloreanThe codec's *huge*, has problems with long file, and every now and then we find more broken metadata parsing
06:53:30saratogareally the answer to problems with faac encoded files is "use vorbis"
06:53:43pikhqI'll second that.
06:53:56*pikhq is of the opinion that only Vorbis and Flac should be used anyways, so. . .
06:54:21LloreanI encoded AC3->Faac earlier for a video, and it didn't sound noticeably bad, but I have tin ears anyway.
06:55:16saratogai sat down and read the ac3 format spec a while back
06:55:22saratogatheres a format i can really hate
06:55:38saratogaits like they sat down and asked "how can i make something so much worse then mp3"
06:56:30LloreanWell, both the DVD format, and now I'm thinking High Definition video disk formats as well, are crazy I think.

06:57:21LloreanI fear I'll never understand why you'd include both uncompressed and lossy compressed soundtracks on the same disk if the standard *requires* that the player be able to handle the uncompressed one.
06:57:50saratogaisn't the uncompressed only 2 channel most of the time?
06:58:10LloreanPCM 5.1 on the disks I own that have it
06:58:24saratogathat is really odd
06:58:24LloreanI think there's also a lossless format they have to support. Dolby TrueHD, iirc, is losslessly compressed.
06:58:39saratogathis is HD-DVD/Bluray?
06:58:48saratogaoh ok
06:59:00LloreanJust silly formats.
06:59:09pikhqI think I know why: encourage people to spend more money because large movies get shoved into 2 discs.
06:59:31ddaltonhow did we do the h300 port with out a recovery mode?
06:59:32pikhqRather than, say, 1 disc for several movies.
06:59:47pikhq(seriously: 6 channel lossy, lossless, *and* uncompressed?!?)
06:59:57saratogathat or maybe to justify those expensive new smaller wavelength lasers
07:00:21Lloreanddalton: Special hardware to recover bricked players
07:00:30pikhqI'd say having a high-quality HD signal could be used to justify that if they didn't *waste* it.
07:00:39LloreanThe Lossless isn't mandatory, apparently
07:00:54pikhqHonestly? One lossless stream, one very high-quality video stream.
07:00:58LloreanFor Bluray, 100% optional. For HDDVD, the player MUST be able to decode the lossless, but it's only required to decode the primary 2 channels, not all of it
07:01:01saratoganon mandatory formats make no sense
07:01:33ddaltonLlorean: ah. So if I find a disk mode and run the worse bit of code I could think off it bricks it completely then can I restore it and get it working again since it has a recovery mode?
07:01:53Lloreanddalton: Not necessarily
07:02:00saratogaassuming you don't corrupt the NAND flash you'll generally be ok
07:02:02Lloreanddalton: Depending on the player, you could accidentally remove the disk mode
07:02:27saratogayou can certainly brick a sansa if you screw up the flash memory though, since music and the bootloader are all on the chip
07:02:29ddaltonoh. but isn't the disk mode and the fw different? separate?
07:02:40LloreanNot always
07:02:57Lloreansaratoga: There's always that preboot mode, right?
07:03:01LloreanOn the e200 regular?
07:05:03saratogai assume thats in the same chip too, unless theres some ROM in the pp5024 itself
07:05:29LloreanWell, it's called "preboot" so it might be.

07:08:39 Part toffe82
07:16:02saratogastupid question about c: if I declare an array in a header file, and then include that header into two seperate c files, does it create two seperate copies of that array or is the compiler smart enough to know there should be one copy shared between the two files
07:18:13hcsIn the header the array should be marked with extern, so that files you include it from know what type it is. The actual definition of the array should actually be in a .c file somewhere.
07:18:45hcsOne instance is the definition, the other is the declaration, I can never remember which is which.
07:19:43saratogathats what i was thinking, but if i declare the array as an extern in the c file, the codec segfaults trying to access it
07:20:42hcscould you maybe pastebin the relevant snippits?
07:20:43saratogathough surprisingly the linker gives no errors
07:23:25saratogahere you go:
07:25:20hcsother way around, the extern float pow_10_to_yover16[] should go in the .h, and the const float pow_10_to_yover16[] in either wma.c or wmadec.c
07:26:18hcsI think you just have a local float * in decode_exp_vlc
07:27:06saratogaextern goes where you're using the variable, not where you actually allocate space for it i think
07:27:14ddaltondo you need to go into recovery mode to update the of on the e200?
07:27:26Lloreanddalton: No
07:27:27saratogaddalton: you don't have to but its one way to do it
07:28:05ddaltonoh. so why is it so hard to find how to put the v2 into recovery mode? surely this isn't secret info like data sheats...
07:28:40ddaltonI believe its hold on plug in your sansa while holding menu on the v2 and rec on the v1. but this is from a guy in the forums and I am not sure how true that is...
07:29:12ddaltonhe was talking about holding menu for the v2 he didn't mention the v1. I found the v1 stuff on wiki.
07:29:53hcssaratoga: The compiler is confused, otherwise it would be complaining that your extern float * declaration isn't const
07:29:58ddaltonsaratoga: do you have a v2?
07:30:40saratogaddalton: no v1
07:31:00ddaltondo any devs have a v2?
07:31:07saratogahcs: so you're saying I should put an extern in front of the actual table in the h file ?
07:31:19hcsthe table shouldn't be in the .h file
07:31:28saratogawell thats ffmpeg's call not mine
07:31:35saratogaso i can't do much about it
07:31:59ddaltonare the v2 sansas still been manufactured?

07:33:38saratogahcs: no, i tried that to make sure and it does generate an error
07:33:50saratogai'm wondering if not using a const is enough to screw up the compiler
07:35:19pikhqddalton: I honestly don't know, except to say that I got my v1 just yesterday for Christmas.
07:36:31Lloreanddalton: As far as we know, the v2 are still being manufactured and sold. Since they're fairly new I can't imagine they've already stopped
07:36:36hcssaratoga: How does the ffmpeg source reference this?
07:37:09hcssaratoga: I'd suggest renaming wmadata.h to wmadata.c and making a wmadata.h with the appropriate externs.

08:10:44hcspikhq: I don't think there should be any difference. Maybe an alignment thing. Yep, with bob[] the address is aligned.

08:13:38hcspikhq: Even if it is, I'd expect the fault to be handled by the OS. I think it's a matter of one version putting the address exactly where the linker expects it.

08:22:32hcsI can't figure out what's up...
08:23:10ddaltonok looks like im in the normal sansa... now webguest42, can you tell me what folders/files you see in the root of the sansa when you connect in disk mode?
08:23:28webguest42ddalton: Music folder, Photo folder, Playlists folder, Record folder
08:23:44ddaltonyep ok. so is that in the standard mode?
08:23:55pikhqBad example code.
08:24:04pikhqYou're printing two pointers there.
08:24:14webguest42ddalton: yes that is standard mode, give me a sec to reconnect in disk mode
08:24:14hcsotherwise it'll segfault on one
08:26:05pikhqI seriously don't get how the array is segfaulting for me.
08:26:30hcspikhq: 'cause there's an invalid pointer in the pointer version
08:26:58pikhqI'm *remarkably* confused.
08:27:19pikhqBut they are treated differently. Go figure.
08:27:24webguest42ddalton: now I have −− audible folder, music folder, photo folder, record folder, .rockbox folder and the following files −− DID.bin, MTABLE.SYS, RES_INFO.SYS, SYS_CONF.SYS and version.sdk
08:27:24ddaltonwebguest42: Sorry I would usually do this in linux but its harder to tell what is going on... I guess it isn't. But I am forced to shutdown my win box every time I want to disconnect my sansa since my screenreader can't find the safely remove hardware thing. or most times...
08:27:50pikhqPerhaps your extern declarations should match the type of the variable? :p
08:28:09hcspikhq: Since the linking is just based on names, yeah, I think the declarations should match exactly.
08:29:11webguest42ddalton: I do not use the safely remove hardware. It works just fine disconnecting the USB cable.
08:29:26hcswebguest42: good luck with that
08:29:52ddaltonI know. But I have always used umount. but I don't know I do that for mp3 players but not drives like usb thumb drives...
08:30:50*pikhq always does an umount. Having to umount -f sometime later is not fun; especially if the filesystem is somehow borked on the USB mass storage device. . .

08:41:16ddaltonwebguest42: ok good. and what does your sansa screen say? I can't check mine. I am visually impared. Did I tell you that?
08:41:33ddaltonwhat does it say when connected in recovery mode?
08:42:38webguest42So am I but under my current lighting conditions I can read it (hence the reason I may return it if Rockbox won't work). Any time it is connected to the computer−−in either mode−−it simply says connecting
08:43:38ddaltonwebguest42: ah ok. I am totally blind so can't even read normal letters... but ok good. And are you 100% sure this is disk mode?
08:43:54 Part Llorean
08:44:42webguest42Well, it comes up as an actual drive mode which is different from having no drive letter so I am assuming that it is in disk mode.

08:46:14ddaltonwebguest42: ok. I will try and confirm with some other developers. I thought there should be a mi4 file there. But perhaps I can ask what people see on the v1s. Thank you very much for all your help though. I really appreciate it. Hopefully this has made some progress on the port. If I was you though I would probably swap it for a v1.

08:47:28ddaltonah ok. well as I said I want to be sure it is disk mode before I start writing wiki pages and stuff...
08:47:35webguest42Are you talking about the rockbox.mi4 file?
08:48:03webguest42That file is in the .rockbox folder and not the root.

08:52:33ddaltonif you don't see it after say 15 seconds just let go of menu.
08:53:13ddaltonand a player to get. Well you may be able to get one of ebay. I think my port is going to take a while though. and perhaps a player of ebay since the other plays aren't sold either...
08:54:11webguest42hold on
08:54:48advcomp2019ddalton, and webguest42, the v2s do not use the mi4 files like the v1s
08:55:27ddaltonadvcomp2019: oh. where did you see this? on bagder's website?
08:56:16advcomp2019ddalton, yea.. i looks like bin files
08:56:38ddaltonadvcomp2019: do you have a v2?
08:56:40webguest42No. This brings it up in standard mode and not in disk mode and never says anything about the 16 mb partion
08:57:35ddaltonok then. well I don't know what else to try. I really need to find a proper disk mode. maybe the one you said before is the correct one. I'll check with bagder and let you know if I have any luck.

09:06:25amiconnJdGordon: more ports == better is correct, provided those ports actually advance...

09:06:32ddaltonJdGordon: I got a v2 e200 for christmas. I have looked all day. But as you probably guessed blindness hasn't helped me when looking at the screen. some guy in the forums said how to get into recovery mode but that didn't work. Could I perhaps ask sansa for this info?

14:50:50hcsnua: found here:

14:52:22DerDomeit's just c&p from my .bash_hostory ;)
14:52:22linuxstbYou'll need an svn (subversion) client.
14:52:27nuaI want to build it with the album art plugin, presumably I just download the patch from the tracker on and apply then build? Or will I need any other dependencies?
14:52:33nuaIts ok, I'm on linux
14:52:47DerDomeyou can use the latest prebuild version
14:52:56DerDomeit works with album art

14:53:07nuaahh great
14:53:30DerDomeand don't try the bmp resize's broken
14:53:34nuabut, it doesn't seem to work :S I have a bmp file in the folder with my album but its not displaying in the latest build
14:53:53nuadoes the bmp have to be a specific size then?
14:54:03DerDomewhat build do you have?
14:54:12nuaone sec...
14:54:47nuahmm, actually that seems old
14:55:10DerDomei got 15971
14:55:14DerDomeand it works
14:55:53DerDomei've got a file named cover.bmp in each folder
14:56:04nuathat's odd... I have cover.bmp in each folder too
14:56:05DerDomesize is 100x100 max
14:56:10nuaahhh, that might be it
14:56:27DerDomeif the size is too big it didn't work for me either
14:56:44nuar15975 is head, so I can't be more up to date it turns out
14:56:56nuaok, I'll get re-scaling
14:57:02pixelmaDerDome: that's not true about the size...

14:57:20DerDomei said it did not work for _me_ ;-)
14:57:24*moos is using 140*140 on his gigabeat :)
14:57:26pixelmathe size depends on the wps you're using
14:57:33DerDomei adjusted the size to 100x100 and it worked
14:57:43DerDomeok, might be

14:58:55DerDomeso with 100x100 you are safe ^^
14:58:58nuais there any way of moving the database menu option to the top instead o the file-browser?
14:59:05moosdepending on the player...
14:59:40moosnua: you have an option for this, but I advise you to check manual first

15:40:12idangazitDerDome: check out the front page of
15:40:27idangazitmentions that the new usb stack supports usb charging
15:40:32DerDomeok, then it does not sound interesting for me, because i'm ipod user ;)
15:40:44idangazitwhich I assume means that it correctly asks the host to supply the full 500mA over USB

22:01:34repriseok i dont really understand what generation my ipod is, but can i run rockbox on a 160GB ipod?
22:02:22reprisei would really love to just be able to do a drag and drop dump onto the hard disk and not have to bother with itunes at all
22:02:26Soapno - That would be the iPod Classic

22:03:06Soaplook into the iTunes replacements - such as sharepod / gtkpod / etc. You won't get true drag-and-drop, but you will get something closer than iTunes.

22:05:38reprisewhat other firmware can i use on a classic?
22:05:43LloreanDerDome: The database encryption is bypassed, not the firmware encryption
22:05:46aliaskreprise: None at the moment.
22:06:07reprisewell i guess no ogg then scorche!

22:23:52LloreanBasically, it looks like you can pass it a string for the date that'll cause it to redirect you to any URL
22:24:14scorche|wwell, you can do other things, but that was one such example
22:24:43LloreanI thought the other things were mostly, "redirect users to pages where the other things are done to them"?
22:25:50rasherLooks like it's "execute javascript through an url"

22:32:12hellogoodbyewhat can i do?
22:32:13rasherhellogoodbye: that's because there's no real usb support in Rockbox. Reboot to the Apple OS.

23:10:10AkulaNope, i'm pretty sure its a v1. The little writing on the back says: "e280", not "e280v2". So its a v1, as far as I know.
