00:07:42OblibAny experts on the SPC codec around? It seems to me that the volume for this codec is too low, and I am trying to figure out how to universally bump it up a bit. As it is, I have to turn up the volume when an SPC song comes on, and then get my ears blasted out when another codec plays the next song

00:16:18Mouser_XOblib: HCS actually removed some false volume settings from the SPC codec around the time it was first commited.
00:16:33Mouser_X(HCS is the one who ported it.)
00:17:07Oblib"false volume settings"?
00:17:31Mouser_XThe codec was apparently interpreting the volume incorrectly.
00:17:54 Quit ompaul (Client Quit)
00:17:59Mouser_XThey got quieter, but they're actually being played at the volume they're supposed to be (at least, this is how I understood it).
00:18:23OblibAnd that makes sense to an extent, if the spc is actually a background soundtrack on a game.
00:18:46OblibBut for a dedicated music player, it would be nice to match the volume of everything else
00:19:01Mouser_XI've learned to live with it...
00:19:22scorche`you could use replaygain on other codecs to turn them down, i suppose
00:19:23Mouser_XI tend to notice that ADX and NSF are sometimes quiet as well.
00:19:33OblibAny idea when HCS might be around?
00:19:45amiconnWell, SPC is multi-channel, right?
00:19:48Mouser_XHe's in the channel right now.
00:20:17Oblibscorche`: I suppose... All my other tracks are actually normalized because I only listen to my ipod in the car. I suppose I could re-encode them to be quieter...
00:20:37Mouser_X(In regards to ADX and NSF, HCS ported those as well)
00:20:38OblibMouser_X: it's SPC to NSF that hurts my ears typically
00:21:03Mouser_XInteresting. I know I've encountered some quiet NSFs.
00:21:06Oblibbut yeah, there are some quiter ones
00:21:22Oblibquiter ones are ones that give up easily, BTW
00:21:35Obliband can't spell correctly, either
00:22:01amiconnMulti-channel codecs have a fundamental problem. The volume of each channel has to be quite low, in order to not produce overflows in the (rare) case of all channels playing at maximum volume. So in the average case volume will be lower than for a plain stereo codec
00:22:39amiconnThere is (almost) nothing that can be done about this
00:22:43OblibHas anyone ever thought of doing a normalization on the fly? Something that would work across codecs?
00:22:55linuxstbYou mean like replaygain?
00:23:02OblibNo, that's once per track
00:23:11 Join eigma [0] (n=cat@
00:23:24OblibI mean, if a track gets quiet in one part, it bumps the volume up until it gets louder again
00:23:28LloreanOblib: Well, you can't really normalize without decoding the whole track anyway to either find the peak, or calculate a value
00:23:41Oblibhence "on the fly"
00:23:45LloreanIf you're making lows higher and highs lower or something, you're talking about compression.
00:23:56Oblibvolume compression
00:26:03OblibRockbox does not do that right now, right?
00:26:30amiconnNot on swcodec targets, no
00:27:48Oblibtoo much overhead?
00:28:14amiconnI'm not sure how much it would take... and I wouldn't use it anyway
00:28:34*amiconn doesn't use replaygain either
00:28:46OblibYou must not listen to music in the car, have a tolerance for very loud parts, or have a really quiet car.
00:29:00 Quit Soap (Remote closed the connection)
00:29:28*Mouser_X doesn't use ReplayGain as well.
00:29:36OblibIn any case, does anyone know where I could universally bump up the volume for SPC? I think 2x would be fine, though it could distort at times, which is fine by me.
00:29:39Mouser_XI do use the volume button though.
00:30:16Mouser_XOblib: You'd most likely have to modify the source code, and compile your own build.
00:30:41Oblibthat's no problem, I've already got some home made patches I'm using.
00:30:42Mouser_XI don't know where in the source you would do this though.
00:31:17denesjust a theoretical question: would 76 kbytes of ram be enough for a rockbox port?
00:31:38scorche`what device has that?
00:31:46OblibMy NSF one is my favorite (FS 8078)
00:31:53Zagordenes: with severe stripping, yes
00:31:54denesperception digital / mymusixx pd-205
00:32:29Bagder76 K is tiny
00:32:40linuxstbdenes: Does it have a hardware mp3 decoder?
00:32:57*amiconn does listen to music in the car, yet had no problems with varying volume there nor anywhere else
00:33:20deneslinuxstb: no, it's a calmrisc16 core + calmmac24 dsp , with 76 kbytes of ram and 256kbytes of flash
00:33:36*Bagder runs
00:33:40deneshere is where I am at so far :
00:33:59*linuxstb suggests denes just spends $50 and buys a Sansa...
00:34:02amiconnThat said, I don't use the SPC codec or other exotic codecs
00:34:05Mouser_XOblib: That one is a patch I've strongly considered using myself.
00:34:06denesthe hardware stuff has been reverseengineered from the firmware
00:34:09*Llorean bough a sansa for $16
00:34:19LloreanI second linuxstb's suggestion

00:34:29Mouser_XI 3rd it.
00:34:34Bagderdenes: calmrisc is seriously painful and almost a showstopper
00:34:35 Join Soap [50] (n=Soap@rockbox/staff/soap)
00:34:51denesBagder: apart from it being 16 bit, what's the problem with it?
00:34:57Bagderto start with, there's no fine working gcc port
00:34:59 Join stripwax_ [0] (
00:35:06Zagordenes: the question everyone wants to know is: what does this player have that makes it worth spending months of hard work on it?
00:35:36denesBagder: the redhat gcc has worked well for me
00:35:39amiconnZagor: The same question could be asked about most rockbox targets...
00:35:49Bagderthe redhat gcc?
00:36:12denesBagder: yes, the calmrisc toolchain from redhat
00:36:30Bagderok, then I stand corrected...
00:36:31denesBagder: from 2001
00:36:39Bagderthat's strange
00:36:47Bagderwe had calmrisc stuff going on after that
00:36:48amiconndenes: The most prominent problems are: * No support in gcc mainline. * Harvard architecture. * Little or no code ram
00:36:54Bagderwith no decent calmrisc support
00:37:14denesBagder: yes, I know about the archos gmini
00:37:15Bagderout previous calmrisc guy even did the gcc port work
00:37:19linuxstbdenes: What version of gcc is it?
00:37:26deneslinuxstb: 2.97 it is called
00:37:28amiconnThe latter both rules out plugins and the loadable codec architecture
00:37:58denesamiconn: well plugins are not very feasible with 76kbytes of sram
00:38:25amiconnYes exactly. And most codecs also need more than that
00:38:40Bagdernot to mention the porting work the codecs will require
00:38:51Bagderfor 16bit and calmrisc opts
00:39:07denesanyhow there is no mp3 decoder written for it yet (which is not exactly trivial with that calmMac dsp, which doesn't have any compiler support afaik), so there are still hurdles left :)
00:39:25amiconnThe codecs (and a few selected plugins) could be put in flash, but that still leaves the problem of ram for data
00:40:09denesamiconn: well it can be done, the original firmware does it too (not loading much in the ram at once) - I don't know how rockbox does it
00:40:49amiconndenes: Rockbox uses libmad for mp1/2/3, with some processor specific optimisations in assembler
00:41:27denesamiconn: yes, that I know - and of course libmad can't be used on my architecture without MAJOR rework
00:41:56 Join jda [0] (
00:42:13amiconnIn spite of some work moths ago getting stuff 16 bit compatible (for the now-dead gmini 1xx port), I think there are still many 16 bit pitfalls in the main rockbox code, let alone codecs
00:42:48denesamiconn: yes, but I think the main concern - ultimately a showstopper probably - is the 76 kb ram, no?
00:43:11Bagderthat's ram for code?
00:43:11Zagoramiconn: yeah, and that question is part of the reason we don't have any ports for these types of noname "chinese" players
00:43:17denesBagder: no, that's all the ram
00:43:27denesBagder: code runs from flash
00:43:35Bagderah, right
00:44:05jdaMouser_X: (re: NSF patch) yeah, it makes listening to NSF files tolerable rather than tedious

00:44:13Bagderit'd require a seriously stripped/modified rockbox
00:44:19jdaooops, I'm supposed to be Oblib

00:45:43hellogoodbyemy ipod video is not entering disk mode automatically upon plugging it in
00:45:47Bagderdenes: I think you're probably better off getting parts of the rockbox code and putting together a separate "miniature" rockbox version
00:45:56hellogoodbyeandy way to fix this, or do i have to do it manually forever?

00:48:20Zagorhellogoodbye: a wild guess. try looking at your hardware list in "my computer". perhaps the "rockbox media device" is marked as disabled?

00:49:42ddaltonBagder: ok. AI also found a phone number. Perhaps if I don't get a reply from the tech email address about the recovery mode. I could ring them. It would atleast force them to say something. Maybe not the answer we're after though.
00:49:50Mouser_XOblib: I tend to listen to NSFe files anyway. If I want to listen to NSFs, I always expect to be in it for the long-haul. Usually, this isn't a bad thing. SIDs, on the other hand, could use a lot of improvement in this area.

00:50:45hellogoodbyezagor: its listed under other devices, with a big yellow question mark
00:50:48Mouser_XThey have multiple songs in each file, and they don't havea preset time limit. As such, if you want to listen to the next song, you have to "seek" to the next track. This is a serious pain to do, when you're trying to just listen through them.

00:52:02OblibMouser_X, yeah, that's how NSFs were the first time I tried listening to one in Winamp
00:53:41Mouser_XOblib: As much as I'd love to continue the conversation, it looks like it's veering into the off-topic area.
00:54:10hellogoodbyezagor it pops up in the notification area that the hardware did not install properly, rockbox reappears under other devices, still not entering disk mode automatically

02:01:26jhMikeSOblib: That won't work. SPCs can be full volume. I have some so loud that they clip whereas most are quiet. Such artificial gain was taken out of the codec for that reason.
02:03:50 Nick midkay_ is now known as midkay (
02:04:50Mouser_XjhMikeS: I mentioned something like that, and amiconn said a little more. Oblib wants it nonetheless.
02:05:44jhMikeSI won't commit it to SVN though.
02:05:50linuxstbWhy would some SPCs be mastered with such a low volume?
02:06:16 Quit einhirn (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
02:06:26Mouser_XSPCs are more like a tracker format, like MOD, or maybe even comparible to MIDI.
02:06:49jhMikeSbackground music?
02:08:07Mouser_Xamiconn said that they're multi-channel (which they are) and therefore you have to have all the channels low, in the rare instance that all the channels play at full volume simultaneously.
02:08:23Mouser_X(Or something like that.)
02:08:36 Join Oblib [0] (
02:08:37jhMikeSit will simply clip in that case.
02:09:05scorche<amiconn> Multi-channel codecs have a fundamental problem. The volume of each channel has to be quite low, in order to not produce overflows in the (rare) case of all channels playing at maximum volume. So in the average case volume will be lower than for a plain stereo codec
02:09:11Mouser_XIndeed, but I think the low volume overall is to avoid clipping, in the instance that that might happen.
02:09:16OblibjhMikeS, as Mouser_X said, I realize that it could clip in some cases, but the SPCs I have are universally quiet. I can't hear them in the car if they come on.
02:09:31OblibThe patch is just for those who want it. I don't think it belongs in SVN either
02:10:55OblibMy ideal solution would be to implement something like vlevel ( to be applied across all codecs
02:11:33jhMikeSSPC does have a gain field I believe but the codec doesn't use it. I don't know if anyone pays attention to it.
02:11:44OblibI don't think I've got the chops for it though, and vlevel through foobar handles all of my normal music, and NSF and SPC files are pretty constant if they're at the right volume to begin with
02:13:22jhMikeSpreglow said he was going to do that sort of thing
02:14:02OblibI hope he does
02:14:41linuxstbOblib: Any idea how big the lookahead buffer is that vlevel uses?

02:16:21jhMikeSlinuxstb: appears to be up to the class user to set
02:16:40linuxstbThe README says "a few seconds"...
02:16:41OblibNope, I don't know any of the details of implementation. I believe jhMikeS is right
02:16:57OblibThe foobar plugin allows you to choose how long to consider
02:19:17OblibThe options for the plugin are "strength" (0 to 1.00), "max. multiplier" (0 to 40), and "buffer length" (0.1 to 5.0 seconds).
02:20:09OblibI do 0.8 strength, 25 max mult, and 2.0 seconds for my car encodes. That's a pretty hard compression and would be annoying in a normal listening environment
02:20:31OblibThe longer the buffer, the less harsh and noticeable.

02:31:27linuxstbI guess it doesn't hurt to add the associations - if mpegplayer supports them, we may as well let users use them...

10:13:34markunSpexFox: which player do you have?
10:13:38SpexFoxSo, I got myself a nice Xmas gift this year. A little old Zune 30 gig.
10:14:07SpexFoxAnd my first thought of course was "How can I screw around with this gadget in ways God never intended?"
10:14:17markuna nice player? (besides not running rockbox of course)
10:14:36SpexFoxSadly, doesn't look like anyone is working on a RockBox version for it. but yea =P
10:15:02SpexFoxI consider it nice anyway. I like the interface over iPods, and has some serious potential for home-brew'n and hacking
10:15:05markunfirst someone has to find out how to load custom software on it, then we can try to port rockbox to it
10:15:30markunwhat do you mean by "some serious potential for home-brew'n and hacking"?
10:16:10SpexFoxWell, I don't know what the hardware can do specifically, I'm not a serious electronics guy. But What I really mean
10:16:20SpexFoxis I'm excited about what can be done with the wifi
10:16:26markunDo you have a plan on how to get your own code running on it? The exploit we used for the Gigabeat S has been fixed in the Zune
10:16:51markunI completely forgot about the wifi
10:17:07markunmaybe porting linux to it would be more useful than rockbox
10:17:19SpexFoxTrue, which is why I'm looking forward to that too
10:17:28SpexFoxbut WiFi seems to be a growing trend in players
10:18:06markunI haven't heard of many players with wifi
10:18:43SpexFoxWell obviously there's iPod's Touch/Phone, and Zune, but there's also...crap, forget the name...

11:20:22amiconn2 days ago you asked a question regarding the grayscale lib which I didn't understand...
11:21:52jhMikeSamiconn: ah, I just saw the ping.
11:23:39jhMikeSamiconn: When using it buffered and drawing text, graphics etc, then using gray_ub_gray_bitmap_part. Once I've drawn the bitmap, it seems to mask-out further drawing in the area of the image.
11:24:08amiconnYes it does
11:24:28amiconnBuffered and unbuffered mode aren't meant to be used together
11:24:38amiconnEither use one or the other, but don't mix
11:24:54amiconnBuffered mode uses a back buffer in order to detect changes
11:24:59jhMikeSI tried unbuffered entirely from within the thumbnail display but that had other problems.
11:26:02jhMikeSI could see the top and bottom few pixels of the image and the center of the image just turned white.
11:26:14amiconnSo if you draw buffered contents and then update, back buffer will be set to front buffer contents. If you then draw unbuffered, contents of the display bitplanes will change, but neither front nor back buffer will (since the unbuffered drawing functions don't know about these buffers at all)
11:26:51amiconnIf you then do a (buffered) update, nothing will change, since back buffer and front buffer are still identical
11:28:48amiconnThe 2 modes exist because each has its advantages and disadvantages. Buffered mode has way more drawing functions (because they're almost trivil to implement compared to unbuffered mode), and the back buffer check reduces graininess when updating, because it only touches pixels which actually change
11:28:56jhMikeSWhy the masked-off rectangle? The areas never draw with _ub_ still operated fine.
11:29:11amiconnUnbuffered mode uses less ram, and is faster if there are lots of changes
11:29:32amiconnjhMikeS: There is no masked-off rectangle
11:31:35amiconnYou just won't see an effect if you draw buffered contents, then update() and the new buffered contents doesn't differ from the old buffered contents, even if the unbuffered contents draw in between is totally different
11:31:40jhMikeSIt seems to behave like that. I can continue drawing normally to all areas except the rectangle initially drawn with the unbuffered bitmap function so it behaves like it's an overlay on top of the buffered drawing. odd.

11:32:06amiconnThe simple rule is - either use buffered mode or unbuffered mode, but don't mix them, as you will get unexpected results
11:32:48 Quit BHSPitLappy (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
11:32:49amiconnFor video, I would always use unbuffered mode only
11:33:12amiconnThe graininess will go away with my new greyscale lib
11:33:42jhMikeSYou should try the mpegplayer patch on a gray target to see what I'm talking about. I need mixed drawing for browsing.
11:37:10amiconnEh, why?
11:37:53jhMikeSTo display UI elements and the video thumbnail image. When video is displayed I want unbuffered of course.
11:38:07amiconnI would simply switch off the grayscale overlay for browsing, apart from that I can't imagine what browsing you mean...
11:38:31jhMikeSSelecting a start point. This may become a scene thumbnailer at some point.
11:40:28amiconnJust use a partial overlay and draw UI elements below... that's what video.rock does when seeking
11:41:24jhMikeSWasn't sure how I could switch to a partial overlay. I saw APIs to move the overlay unless I missed something.
11:41:29amiconn(video.rock doesn't use the grayscale lib though, as its frames are pre-rendered)
11:43:46amiconnHmm, showing a partial overlay isn't possible right now. Something to consider for the new lib...
11:43:59amiconnYou can shift the defined overlay around though
11:45:53amiconnAnd nothing stops you from reiniting the library
11:46:57jhMikeSIf I init at the full size I suppose re-initing for a smaller size should definitely fit the RAM allocated?
11:48:52amiconnBuffered mode needs more ram than unbuffered mode though
11:49:47jhMikeSWith partial overlay I won't need buffered mode at all. I'll just draw around it.
11:50:36amiconnYes. Just keep in mind that you must not use lcd_update() or lcd_update_rect() when doing this.
11:51:23amiconnThat's why gray_deferred_lcd_update() exists
11:51:41 Join OlivierBorowski [0] (n=OlivierB@
11:52:55jhMikeSmakes sense. can you wait or poll until the defererred update has completed?
11:54:04amiconnHmm, not atm
11:54:13amiconnBut implementing this should be easy
11:54:29amiconngray_deferred_lcd_update() just sets a (private) flag in the lib
11:54:46amiconnThe ISR checks this flag, and if set, does an lcd_update and resets it
11:55:08jhMikeSI suppose I can cheat for the moment check the flag directly.

12:09:00markunwhat does the manual state?
12:09:20amiconnOperating the OF is confusing if you know rockbox....
12:09:51markunI wonder what kind of drop in audio quality he's talking about
12:10:21amiconnIirc the manual states 14 hours for the plain models and 35 hours for the L models
12:10:51amiconnOf course we don't know what conditions cowon uses for measuring runtime
12:11:44pixelmamarkun: I think he means lossless > lossy audio quality drop
12:12:04amiconnWithout backlight, I got 15h 07min on X5 (my standard mp3 test album, ~200kbps)
12:12:19pixelmaand he doesn't seem to be too well informed, you can have mp3 gaplessly...
12:12:33amiconn...and 51h 57min on M5L...
12:13:41amiconnThe Cowon OF doesn't play MP3 gaplessly (there's a very tiny gap - *maybe* this is on M3 only though), but rockbox does
12:14:06markunpixelma: "... as not to be disappointed by the drop in sound quality by rockboxing"
12:14:15markundoes he mean that he can't use lossless in rockbox?
12:14:57amiconnDrop in sound quality? I dunno what he's talking about. When comparing iriver OF and rockbox, I had the impression that our mp3 decoder delivers better quality....
12:15:52amiconnThat said, I don't know what decoder cowon uses, i.e. whether it's the same as iriver's (afaik there is a highly optimized mp3 decoder for coldfire from freescale)

13:41:06pixelmaanyone is not here ;)
13:41:21SanemindI have a simple question regarding the sansa rockbox port (amazing bit of work btw!).. I know that I can insert the adapter with the left button pushed to boot into original firmware...
13:41:41Sanemind..but upon doing so, the original firmware doesn' seem to see any of my music.
13:41:51SanemindWell, I'd settle for someone... ;)
13:42:55Sanemind..could this have to do with the statement 'disabling database rebuild' that the bootloader displays when loading the original firmware... thus the [inclined towards metadata /slash/ MTP ish device] doesn't scan for the presense of any mp3 files on it?'s not a huge issue... but it would be nice to listen using the original firmware to prolong battery life when I'm starting to run low..
13:44:46pixelmaI've been told that it should still scan when connecting to USB the next time (only the automatic reboot and scanning database after the disconnect should be disabled). Note: I don't have an e200
13:44:49Sanemind..even if it isn't possible, I'd still choose rockbox and all it's other features, even if I can't effectively 'dual-boot' just for listening to music.
13:45:13pixelmawhat happens if you turn the player off and then plug USB?

13:46:17SanemindIn that case, It boots into original firmware and goes immedietly into USB drive mode. (At which poing it just shows a 'connected' logo on the screen)

13:46:26Sanemind *sp* at which -point-
13:46:37SanemindObviously I don't expect it to play my ogg's.
13:47:03SanemindMaybe they're in the wrong folder? I just asumed they should go in 'Music'
13:47:23pixelmano idea then, maybe someone else can answer
13:48:06pixelmaon my c200 the original firmware finds the music in any folder and I think it's quite similar on the e-series

17:40:48nmor+ ?
17:41:20markunnmor: I'm here, what's the problem?
17:41:21sam240i might be able to help
17:41:54nmorim trying to use the automatic install utility on a win32 computer and it freeze after extracting
17:42:36sam240What hardware is it?
17:42:40nmoripod nanno first gen
17:43:01nmorive tried 2 builds trying 1.0.3 now
17:43:04nmorseems to be working better
17:43:16sam240Have you tried a manual install?
17:43:21nmoreh nope it froze at "extracting file" again
17:43:34nmorno i havent i will give that a go

17:46:02Lynx_i tried the utility a week back, too, and gave up due to some error
17:46:44TrayeQuick question...Trying to help someone who does not have IRC set upan iPOD video with Rockbox. It's a brand new iPOD video. Does my friend need to download iTUNES for any reason or can he simply install rockbox without initializing his database? I know when I installed Rockbox my database was already configured for iTUNES...So I wasn't sure and wasn't sure where to go for the answer so I popped up here.
17:47:11sam240You don't actually need itunes at all for an ipod video if you use rockbox
17:47:25soapTraye, you say "brand new"
17:47:30nmorokay i think i was just impatient. im extracting the files to the ipod with a zip utility and its just extremely slow
17:47:32TrayeOk so he doesn't need iTunes eeeever. Thank you!
17:47:40sam240It's not a classic is it?
17:47:48soapI assume that means, Traye, one which is either 80 of 160GB and has a metal face = Classic, not Video
17:47:53TrayeYes....Can he not use Rockbox if it is?
17:48:03soapRockbox does not work on the Classic.
17:48:03sam240Rockbox isn't available for the Classic
17:49:08TrayeThank you guys. :-)

17:50:01nmorare ipods painfully slow in disk mode or somthing? its been about 5 minutes and its about 20% done

17:50:13soapCan I assume you have a nano?
17:50:22nmoryes 1g nano
17:51:26soapRegardless, yes the iPods are slow, the Nano VERY slow, when in Apple's emergency disk mode (the Black and White screened one) - rebooting into Apple firmware manually and then inserting the USB cable so you are in Apple's main disk mode will be many, many, times faster on your Nano, and should be faster on other iPods as well.
17:51:29amiconnOnly Video and Nano are that slow
17:51:54amiconnAll earlier ipods have fast emergency disk mode
17:52:23amiconnOn Video and Nano it makes sense to reboot into OF before transferring large amounts of files
17:52:29sam240Out of curiosity, is there any reason that the emergency disk modes are slower on the new ones?
17:52:50nmorto annoy rockbox users ;x
17:53:30sam240Do the older ipods have a hardware usb controller?
17:54:09nmorbut yeah im pretty sure the "freezing" was infact extremely slow extracting

17:56:51webguest29Hi all, I have a question one of you may know off the top of your head (I've already looked through the bug listings...)
17:57:25webguest29I just tried out a new theme on my sansa e260, and it ended up altering some of the menu prompts...
17:57:43webguest29Now, instead of "Browse Themes" I have "Write.cfg file"
17:58:10webguest29Any ideas if I can just remove or update a particular file, or do I have to reinstall the whole thing...
17:59:04sam240I don't know about undoing that one particular change, but there is a way of resetting settings temporarily on boot up
17:59:05***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
17:59:25webguest29Great, I'll try that, do I just hold in a key?
17:59:34sam240The particular method for doing it is probably specific to your player
17:59:47sam240It'll be in the manual I expect
18:00:05webguest29Oh, I thought you meant on Rockbox...
18:00:14sam240Yes, on rockbox
18:00:22webguest29oh, i get ya
18:00:38sam240On the ipods I'm pretty sure you can do it with the hold switch on bootup
18:00:38webguest29ok, I'll give that a go...
18:01:12*nmor snores
18:01:50webguest29Ok, it worked... it was the record button on the sansa, I got my "Settings" menu back instead of "Control Panel"...
18:02:06webguest29I wonder if it will last now... lemme restart it
18:02:44webguest29woohoo, it did.. I got my cabbie default back

18:03:40EternalRainswhen, in a theme, scrolling and sub-lines are combined, and the subline changes while the line is scrolling, does the scroll pick up where it left off when it switches back?
18:04:52amiconnNo, the scrolling starts over
18:05:55EternalRainsso if the subline switch delay is too short, is it possible that really long lines may never have the end seen?

18:10:36sam240Buschel: What battery life does the OF get on the 30GB one?
18:10:59amiconnBuschel: Do you disable the opto controller when hold is enabled?
18:11:43Buschelinteresting thing is: when using 100MHz max speed instead of 80MHz the power consumption is ~6 mA higher. this also means that increasing the default speed to what the codec needs (mpc ~35MHz), the power consumption will be lowered further
18:12:00webguest38Hi. Where can i get the builds that are unstable?
18:12:03Buschelsam240: 14h from apple's site
18:12:07Buschelamiconn: yes
18:12:18amiconnBtw, I use a similar strategy on ipod 1st gen. The 1st gen wheel draws a lot of power, but is switchable. By default, rockbox checks state for ~50us every tick (0.5% duty cycle) and only leaves it enabled when there is activity. On hold, the wheel is didsabled completely
18:12:20soapBuschel, do you want me to run some benches?

18:17:08sam240soap: What constitutes "perfect" conditions?
18:17:28soapno wps, no backlight, no buffer trashing
18:17:47soapno EQ, or other DSP
18:18:00amiconnNo wps??
18:18:00EternalRainsno unneccessary thinking?
18:18:30*amiconn usually tests with default wps (yes, that includes peakmeters)
18:19:05EternalRainsI test with my own that probably almost crashes rockbox with its size
18:19:08amiconnThe only exception so far was my 2nd Gen runtime test (peakmeters would have been too demanding - that was long before my lcd optimisations)
18:19:11salty-horsehi. I'm noticing an odd behavior with pictureflow in the latest svn. turning sansa's wheel clockwise scrolls the pictureflow to the left. and when viewing the track list, it moves up instead of down

18:19:21soapno WPS - I leave it in the menu - I do the same when benching the Apple firmware.
18:19:44amiconnSo on 2nd Gen I tested using iCatcher
18:19:57amiconnNo wps isn't realistic, I'd say
18:20:16amiconnAnd btw, the 52 hours on M5L were also measured with default wps
18:20:17soapI'm not going for realistic - I'm going for repeatable.
18:20:36soapSo individual changes can be compared.
18:20:47amiconnDefault wps is repeatable too....

18:21:04soapthe WPS display and parsing code was (is) in a state of flux.
18:21:32amiconnsam240: Yup. The iAudio L models are runtime beasts :)
18:22:14sam240I used to have an iriver that did 30 hours but 50 is just ridiculous
18:22:25amiconnX5L isn't as good as M5L because of the colour LCD, and the extra chips, even though those are usually in standby (usbotg, radio and serial number)

18:26:29sam240The apple original firmware tends to treat you like an idiot, having basically no configurability. Rockbox has configuration options out the wazoo,

18:44:09Buschelsoap: which audio format will you use?
18:44:22amiconnThe PP chips don't seem to vary core voltage with clock, hence power consumption depends linearly on clock
18:44:54amiconnSo switching back & forth has no disadvantage over using a fixed clock, apart from the (small) switching overhead

19:39:55sam240TheCompWiz: I would have thought it would all be in the manual?
19:40:01TheCompWizso would I.
19:40:12escargotHi, I have a question: I installed rockbox on an ipod nano (1st gen). When I go to the database, it says "Building database ... 35 found (PREV to return)" and stays stuck there forever.
19:40:40TheCompWizlooks like a statement to me.
19:40:58LloreanTheCompWiz: Well, "press x to get z" would be "press Select to get ____"? I mean, your phrase didn't directly map to a sentence, because it's "Hold select while inserting USB if you want USB mode not to start.
19:41:09LloreanSo I was assuming you *actually* meant a sentence structured like you typed, and thought you were asking a new question
19:41:23TheCompWizLlorean: ... I meant "in general" ... is there a guide to all the odd-ball shortcuts someplace?
19:41:37LloreanTheCompWiz: Generally speaking, everything is in the manual. If things get left out we appreciate patches to improve the manual.
19:42:13sam240escargot: If it's been like that for a while try restarting the player. Sometimes it gets frozen on that screen on the first time scan (for me anyhow)

19:47:35sam240Quick question for anybody that knows python
19:47:36LloreanTheCompWiz: It's dependent. The major difference, iiuc, is a matter of addressing. So it depends on how you're interfaced with the hardware.
19:48:08LloreanFor example, in the e200/c200 we were able to use MicroSDHC cards once Rockbox was installed and properly addressing them
19:48:19sam240What syntax do you use to check if n is an integer (I've just started learning)
19:48:25Lloreansam240: I don't believe there's any python used in Rockbox...
19:49:08TheCompWizso, its typically a *driver* level thing... not really any particular hardware.... but obviously... some hardware is better-designed to deal with the extended addressing...
19:49:15sam240Llorean: Sorry, had the window open and thought somebody might know...
19:50:19Lloreansam240: This is an on topic channel. Please respect the guidelines, they aren't that confusing
19:51:12LloreanTheCompWiz: Mostly it's a driver level thing. But sometimes it may be a case of, for example, embedded firmware in a card reader or something so that a PC side driver may not be able to do anything about it.
19:51:49TheCompWizLlorean: thanks mucho for clearing that up. I thought as much... but wasn't sure if they added a 2nd layer of pins or some crap like that.
19:52:02TheCompWiz(I dont have an sdhc card ;))
19:52:41EternalRainsI 've been wondering, if you try to put a margin in a conditional, would it work like this:
19:52:45EternalRainsOr would you have to escape it like this?
19:53:33linuxstbThe former should work, but maybe it's %?C<%m|50||>
19:53:41TheCompWizis there a dev page for rockbox? (i.e. to-dos, what's currently being worked on... )
19:53:56karashatalinuxstb has it right
19:54:14EternalRainsthank you
19:54:35scorche|wTheCompWiz: well, that depends on what you are looking for specifically...they is the tracker, irc logs, the wiki, etc
19:55:14TheCompWizoki doki... better question... what needs to be done?... and how can I help? lol
19:55:46LloreanTheCompWiz: Go to the patch tracker, filter "bugs", pick ones that you can reproduce, and fix them. :)
19:56:14TheCompWizno "milestones?"

19:57:05LloreanRunning well is a good deal more important than adding features on MP3 players, you can't always put an updated firmware on it halfway through a trip.
19:57:25LloreanAny release version would be more based on "when we get it running well enough" if anything
19:57:57TheCompWizbut at the same time... it helps to know what you're working towards... rather than patch something someone else has patched because it is working towards something better.
19:59:07***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
19:59:18LloreanI don't understand
19:59:26LloreanWhen fixing bugs, you're working towards "making it work again"
20:00:00TheCompWizi.e. ... if I patched an old usb stack... before the "new usb stack" was implemented... would have been a wasted effort.

20:01:23linuxstbTheCompWiz: There isn't such a list of what people are working on - your best bet is to pick something that interests you, and mention it here on IRC. If someone else (for example) is working on the same thing, they'll tell you.
20:01:36LloreanThere are very few "new systems" going in to replace old ones anyway
20:02:02LloreanBoth Metadata on Buffer and the new USB stack are really the only two examples of them in relatively recent times, and they've been pretty widely discussed and such.
20:04:12alienbiker99viewports too
20:04:56scorche|wwell, viewports isnt really being worked on currently
20:05:30*linuxstb wonders what he's been doing the past few days then...
20:05:35LloreanViewports doesn't count for that anyway.
20:05:56LloreanIf you fix *bugs*, viewports shouldn't negate your fixing of them, unless they happen to be fixed by viewports (I don't think too many will be, since it's supposed to mostly maintain compatibility, in theory)
20:06:13*markun found some WMA's which don't play in rockbox but do play in ffmpeg

20:08:05LloreanI think the problems start at <64 but it might've been <32
20:08:23LloreanThere's some feature the encoder enables at that point that, iirc, we don't have support for yet.
20:08:28LloreanUnless I missed its addition
20:08:31markunLlorean: do we know what the problem is?
20:08:44markunah, ok
20:08:50scorche|wLlorean: i was thinking <32, but wasnt sure
20:09:29LloreanIt might be <32
20:09:33markunthe sim gets a segmentation fault, not a very nice way to tell me we don't support some feature :)
20:09:42LloreanAh, that might be something different then

20:13:39Aloneaok. I just remember a long time ago the pdf wasn't as up to date as everything else.
20:13:53markunAlonea: maybe a browser cache problem?
20:13:57LloreanThere was an old PDF for rockbox 2.4
20:14:02LloreanMaybe that's what was being referred to?
20:14:42AloneaLlorean: possibly. like I said, lonnng time ago. around a year..gosh have I had rockbox that long. wow

21:32:10amiconnBucketOfTruth: It would only be on-topic in case you're planning to port rockbox to such a car stereo
21:32:19*amiconn 's car stereo does have an sd slot
21:33:48cgi bought just for the same reason (lidl brand)
21:33:57*Llorean 's car stereo has a tape player, and he simply uses a cheap adapter.
21:34:25Mouser_XThere's an MP3 player in the shape of an audio cassete that reads SD cards. You cuold use that.
21:34:36*amiconn didn't buy his car stereo because of the sd slot, but only because of the dab tuner and line input

22:23:56bertrikif you have a question about rockbox, just ask
22:25:38dnanari have a Cowon iAudio X5L. i'm trying to use a new battery on it. I removed old battery under HDD, putted new one. I checked voltage between red/black wire on the player's motherboard, i get around 3.5V. Problem : the player does not start, even with two batteries. It only start when i try to "reload" the player (i get access to musics, etc... with rockbox)... Can anyone help me to know what's wrong please ?
22:27:12dnanarbertrik: i can ask this question here even if it's not rockbox directly related please ?
22:28:27bertrikI don't have such a player. My guess would be that the new battery is nearly empty which prevents the device from starting normally (safety kicking in). Maybe you can let it recharge some more?
22:29:05bertrikdnanar: I'm not an admin here, but I think it needs to be at least partially rockbox related
22:29:14dnanarwell... when i check the voltage, it shows ~3.5 which means it's ok no ?
22:29:48bertrikif it's a lithium ion, 3.5V is on the low end AFAIK

23:46:42Lloreannewnick: The iPod Video is actually an older iPod. They're on 6G now.
23:46:53Llorean6G = iPod Classic, 5.5G and 5G = iPod Video

23:50:16newnickits not
23:50:18Mouser_XBeaten again...
23:50:28tonyyarussoNext, I had a pondering that could make a neat feature request that I wanted to bounce off this crowd: What about including some means of text-to-speech synthesis (such as festival), so that one could load .txt (or even .pdf if possible) files onto their player, and have them read to them on-the-go? Would that be hard to do, given that festival already exists (with multiple languages supported)?
23:50:53Bagdertonyyarusso: that's not a new feature-request even :-)
23:51:01Lloreantonyyarusso: There's even a patch in the tracker for espeak
23:51:11LloreanWe just can't use it because it uses a GPLv3 version of espeak
