00:28:04gevaertsiok: there is no wiki page about it, but has some information (look at the last entry). What's not mentionned there (but somewhat implied) is that we have signal quality issues.
00:28:05desowiniok: and of course svn commits on front page
00:28:08Lloreaniok: I don't know if there's anywhere documenting the exact state.
00:28:25*gevaerts documents its state on demand
00:29:52gevaertsiok: short summary : it's not ready yet, but depending on your player, operating system, and PC it may be usable for you
00:29:55iokdesowin: yes, I saw the commit comments but it's hard to build the whole picture if you haven't followed the history from the beginning
00:30:45iokgevaerts: what about sansa e200? Would you recomment to still use the OF for music transfer?
00:31:57LloreanIf we were ready to recommend its use, we'd enable it.
00:32:38 Join Davide-NYC [0] (
00:32:53iokLlorean: yes, that's what I also thought. And there is no entry in the 'major changes' list :-)
00:32:54gevaertsiok: the actual usb driver for e200 seems to work fine, but there is a bug in the flash driver that sometimes causes data corruption on write. It seems to happen every few gigabytes when using high speed, and is rarer at full speed.
00:34:09gevaertsiok: that's the main "depends on your player" item. On ipod and H10 it might work slowly or unreliably, but it won't do bad writes; on sansa it sometimes does
00:34:40iokgevaerts: ouch!
00:35:18iokgevaerts: this is the worst thing for a developer: "sometimes", i.e. not surely reproducible, right?
00:36:52gevaertsiok: the main problem on this one as far as I understand it is lack of documentation/understanding of the hardware that drives the sd card.

01:16:54roolkupixelma: yes, which is a shame as everything is small
01:17:13LloreanA: Disk Mode happens before the Rockbox bootloader code is even run.
01:17:25roolkupixelma: I created bitmaps for sudoku and rockblox though
01:18:19roolku(or tetrox or whatever it is called these days...)
01:18:33pixelmaroolku: yes saw that. The next could probably sokoban as I'm currently working on the c200 adaptation which hasn't happened yet, would only be one more bitmap
01:18:50pixelmadon't say the tet* word... :)
01:19:05 Quit faemir ("If debian was Arch then Ubuntu would own.")
01:19:23Aits odd, because i have no idea whats going on with my ipod, all it does it keep resetting to the exclamation point with the folder on it
01:21:04desowinI experienced such behaviour when I had ipod mini (I no longer have it), after changing bootloader it went back to normal
01:22:09Adesowin, did you install a cf card or something on it also?
01:22:39roolkupixelma: if you want to create some bitmaps that would be great - I am not the greatest artist and it is even worse in black and white (or black and red actually)
01:22:50 Quit tessarakt2 (Connection timed out)
01:25:10pixelmayes, I'd actually like that challenge... black is usually the foreground colour? Having a look at the sim as we speak :)
01:25:54 Nick A is now known as Proxy (
01:26:06roolkupixelma: the sim is misleading, background is black and text is red
01:26:42linuxstbpixelma: BTW, the USB screen image used on the ipod video looks quite small. now that we can actually see it for more than a split second.
01:26:43roolkupixelma: but the backlight is actually lighting up the red - so the display is all black when the backlight is off
01:27:08amiconnSo it's a normally black monochrome lcd?
01:27:34Lloreanlinuxstb: Does it use the same one as the Gigabeat?
01:27:51linuxstbLlorean: All LCDs > 176 pixels wide use the same image
01:28:00roolkuamiconn: yes
01:28:01pixelmaroolku: ah that's what I wondered (remember seeing some pictures) - but you wouldn't care if the graphics are "inverted" as the text is?
01:28:17*amiconn thinks the simulator should be fixed then
01:28:57pixelmaa monochrome display that's unreadable without backlight is a bit of a pity...
01:29:47roolkuamiconn: the configuration currently doesn't support it - the backlight will only change the background, not the foreground as on target
01:29:55 Quit Domonoky (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
01:30:26Lloreanlinuxstb: I don't think it looks too small on the gigabeat, but I guess it could certainly be bigger.
01:30:39amiconnI said it should be fixed, not that it would be trivial ;)
01:30:45roolkupixelma: it is just about readable - the forground (red) is silvery with a good light source and suitable angle
01:31:21roolkuamiconn: :) yes, I agree
01:31:39 Quit conando (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
01:31:42*amiconn thinks that at the same time, the sim lcd colours should be made consistent with the screenshot function's colouras
01:32:26pixelmalinuxstb: ok, will keep it in mind
01:33:00linuxstbpixelma: Thanks. Obviously not that important, it's just that I used USB on the video for the first time today, and thought it looked odd...
01:34:17*gevaerts implements a complimentary "Refresh Database" screen to be shown for five minutes on USB disconnect
01:35:24pixelmabtw. wanted to ask you something (as you seem to be the only only around currently who knows a bit about Mac and Ipod installation). I'm currently going through the installation instructions in the manual and for the manual bootloader installation on MacOS it is mentioned that you have to "unmount" the Ipod but not eject it - wouldn't someone have to do the same when using rbutil?
01:35:48Proxyim trying to compile rockbox, but i keep getting a xargs zip no such file or directory in cygwin
01:36:31pixelmalinuxstb: in general these kind of info are now a bit hidden and spread across multiple sections and I want to get a picture first and collect all the facts...
01:36:58amiconnroolku: What's the current state of the mrobe100 port? Is it already kinda usable?
01:37:16 Join perrikwp [0] (i=4aa794a0@gateway/web/ajax/
01:37:19roolkuamiconn: yes, it is very usable
01:37:45amiconnDoes the greyscale lib work?
01:37:55roolkuamiconn: touchpad is kinda touchy and takes time to get used to - lowlight thinks he can tweak sensitivity
01:38:22roolkuamiconn: no I was going to ask you if you could give me a hand with that
01:39:05pixelmaroolku: just noticed, you also get the aspect ratio corrected bitmaps for the archos display then (chess as you mention in the forum post might look very weird on the mrobe100 display currently) :)
01:40:05roolkupixelma: it looks squished and very small, but I was very excited to see it work at all :)
01:40:06linuxstbpixelma: ipodpatcher (and I assume rbutil) does the unmounting itself now on Mac OS X - so I'm pretty sure that instruction is now obsolete.
01:40:16amiconnroolku: Shouldn't be difficult at all. Afaik the mrobe100 uses the same pixel packing as archos, and the standard pp lcd1 bridge
01:40:46pixelmalinuxstb: ah, good to know... :)
01:41:31pixelmaI guess sansapatcheris able to do that too?
01:42:00amiconnSo you'll need the standard bunch of arm asm transfer functions, and lcd_grey_phase_blit needs implementation
01:42:10roolkuamiconn: yes, that is what lowlight said, but I haven't really looked into that
01:42:25amiconnYou'll also want lcd_blit because you need it to figure out the internal refresh rate of the lcd
01:42:31linuxstbpixelma: Yes, it looks like it does (checking the source)
01:42:40amiconn(lcd_blit is needed by test_scanrate.rock)
01:43:07*amiconn could probably write that stuff blindly, but not right now
01:43:53pixelmaroolku: music is playing and plugins are working, time for a manual? (which obviously means some work)
01:44:14 Join kushal_12_27_200 [0] (n=kushal@
01:44:36amiconnAfter all this is in place, you'll need to calibrate the gamma curve. I need a plugin for that myself, because some gamma curves are still not adjusted properly (and I also need gamma curve hot-switching for the 1st+2nd Gen)
01:44:38roolkuamiconn: yes, it's bed time here as well - I'll have a look tomorrow
01:46:02roolkupixelma: yes I know, but I have never built the manual, so a bit of a learning curve and I need to get it working on cygwin...
01:47:00roolkuamiconn: will the calibration work with the red backlight? I am curious how well it works
01:47:15amiconnWell, it should
01:47:29pixelmaroolku: you won't have to do it all by yourself, I only meant to ask if you think it's already worth it (sorry for being unclear)
01:47:56roolkuamiconn: the display seems quite slow - for example the ball in brickmania is really hard to see when it is moving
01:48:33amiconnIt will use a comparison of "real" greylevels to rasterized greylevels. You will have to move away far enough to be unable to recognise the raster
01:48:44amiconnSlow display == good for the greylib
01:48:48amiconn(less flicker)
01:48:57pixelmaroolku: and I build the manual on cygwin, too. Works good except I couldn't figure out how to set up tex4ht manually for the html version
01:49:01amiconnSo far, the greylib works best on H1x0
01:49:17roolkupixelma: no, it occured to me as well - it would be useful to get the install instructions written up - maybe even integrated into rbutil - so 'users' could try it and give feedback
01:50:51pixelmaI see what I can do to help (and probably draw an svg...)
01:51:31roolkupixelma: excellent, much appreciated

02:46:50KlownerI just acquired a Sansa e270 and it appears to be a v1 so rockbox should work, but I noticed under the Rockbox Status section on the wiki that "USB Handler" has a notice next to it, does that mean the only way to get media onto the device is through the MicroSD expansion? Or am I interpreting that incorrectly
02:48:29pixelmait means that currently your only able to put music on it by using the original firmware (Rockbox is able to dual boot and should even reboot automatically into OF on USB plug)
02:48:39pixelmaor other media
02:50:09Klowneroh, well that's not so bad
02:50:34Klownerrebooting my little sansa in exchange for being able to play mpegs seems like a fair trade
02:52:04TheBasharCan anyone recommend the best way to remove duplicates from the database? Is deleting the .tcds the best way to reset?
02:53:25LloreanTheBashar: That or simply choosing to initialize it again
02:56:17Absinthehiw long does it take to update the database? Sometimes I update the database on my sansa, turn it off immediately after, and it works fine.
02:56:28TheBasharLlorean: Thanks. The "Initialize now" option didn't work when I had the same problem a couple days ago. But I tried it again at your suggestion and it worked. What a difference a couple days (build) makes.

02:57:57LloreanAbsinthe: A lot of factors determine how long the refresh takes.
02:58:08TheBasharLlorean: Or maybe running out of free space?
02:58:16AbsintheSuch as?

03:17:53Proxyas in when you go to ../tools/configure (choose model you're building for) and then it asks you for normal manual simulator or bootloader
03:18:39LloreanThe bootloader is a separate, very minimal part of the Rockbox code. It's main duty is to load Rockbox or the OF upon booting the device.
03:18:52LloreanYou remember from when you installed, there were two steps, the Rockbox install, and the bootloader install?

05:13:38webguest41what up?
05:14:15LloreanThis isn't a conversation channel. And I have no idea if that person came back.
05:15:51webguest41I know. well if he/she does tell said user to make sure the voice options are disabled if they don't use them, rb was probbly checking for the .voice file whenever the "focus" changed

07:55:47outsider1102anyone: hello again, i just installed rockbox on my ipod (5.5G 80gb FW 1.2.3) and bout an hour into using rockbox, the sound on my ipod is coming out distorted, could this be a problem in the software, should i do a restore??
07:59:04LloreanDistorted how?
07:59:31outsider1102Liorean: theres is no bass, and there seems to be an overload of treble...
07:59:55outsider1102when i raise my volume up to 100% its sounds like its at 50%
08:00:41LloreanHave you tried resetting the settings?
08:00:59outsider1102i also rebooted to the regular Apple Firmware and the same results are showing, no bass, treble overload and low volume
08:01:18outsider1102settings in the rockbox Firmware??
08:01:55LloreanWait, same problem in the Apple firmware?
08:02:06LloreanRockbox won't affect how it sounds in the Apple firmware, so it sounds like a hardware problem.
08:02:11outsider1102Liorean: yes
08:02:26LloreanHave you tried it with other headphones, and are you sure the headphone port is undamaged?
08:02:40outsider1102let me check...
08:03:03outsider1102actually i have an Apple remote that connects to the dock connector and the same results are showing
08:03:45LloreanWith different headphones?
08:04:08outsider1102no, i'm trying that now...
08:05:13outsider1102heh, what do you know...
08:05:23outsider1102it works with the standard apple headphones...
08:06:09outsider1102i'm am noe trying the sound on the regular Apple FW
08:08:03outsider1102Llorean: the problem seems to be solved, both firmwares now work fine, it must be the cord extension im using with the other headphones
08:10:11ZacamMy Sony MDR-700's developed a crack in the sheilding used under the audio jack cover. I discovered it when I attempted to remove said sheilding to replace the jack as I had thought it to be a tip connection problem. Amazing what happens to hardware.
08:11:21outsider1102Zacam: i tested my headphones on both my Sony PSP and Apple iPod, its seems to be a 2.5 mm jack cord extension that im using that is the problem
08:11:49outsider1102but, when i use the remote cord for both my PSP and iPod the sound is back to normal
08:12:18outsider1102so its this cord extension that im using, that in itself is another problem i need to find out
08:13:46outsider1102Llorean: thanks for the help, its neither my software or the ipod that is flawed it is a cord that im using

14:58:07gevaertsPP502x host is EHCI based. That's pretty similar to OHCI (iirc, it's 7 or 8 years ago that I really studied those specs). Both are similar in basic concept to how PP device-side works (just a bit more complex of course, host has to do more). s3c2440 device side seems more involved (looks like it does much less in hardware)

18:01:39Domonokyfor the h100/h300 bootloader install, it asks the user for a original firmware file, this is then patched and placed on the device.

20:32:12BigBambiPersonally I find it understandable
20:32:21BigBambiBetter model than what?
20:32:34LloreanIt pretty much depends on the features you want.

20:55:30LloreanAnd I'll be the first to admit (or rather, I would be the first to admit, but I think other people have admitted it) that ki's probably right that we need to think of new ways to address some of the problems we have.
20:55:40LloreanThe problem is, I have no new ideas, and the people who say that don't actually suggest anything. =/
20:56:44BigBambiI agree that sometimes it doesn't come across well
20:57:03BigBambiBut the problem is how to police softly, and not have people just take advantage
20:57:58BigBambiOr people cry favouritism (mentioning no names...)
20:58:18LloreanThat's my problem. I see people take advantage all the time, and in the end I find myself having to come down harder on them, because they think they're not doing anything wrong by the time I say something, and they're more resistant to a request to change behaviour.
21:00:01LloreanIf you don't actually enforce the rules, but say "Hey, we've got these wonderful rules over here, but yeah, you do what you're doing and I'll keep spoon feeding you", the rules don't really matter. =/
21:00:07BigBambiPerhaps a large part is just we can be a bit short when enforcing rules. I know it is hard when it is all the time, but we (read I) could be a little more verbose when enforcing.
21:00:30BigBambiAnd none of us are outright rude, but we can tread the line...

21:11:22faemirLlorean: high five for hardware failures. My third harddrive in 3 months just failed.
21:11:46gevaertsiamben: there are a few problems left : (1) signal quality, (2) a bug in the sansa flash driver that only seems to show up when using USB that causes data corruption, and (3) mac osx 10.5 doesn't like it (it crashes)
21:12:06Lloreanfaemir: One's the power socket on a laptop, which is under warranty so I don't have to do any exploring. The other is unknown at the moment. After the move, the computer made a grinding noise, shuddered, and died. Sounded more like a fan than anything though, so I'm hoping it's that, and a motherboard safety.
21:12:30faemirI hate hardware failure D=
21:14:44gevaertsLlorean: we're still looking for the cause of this signal quality issue, and collecting data from different PP502x players might help, especially if they are tested on the same USB port (which basically means by the same person), since different USB ports seem to have very different tolerance to the issues.

21:19:06faemirhow hard is it to modify the new default rockbox theme to make the icons along the bottom smaller?
21:19:14gevaertsLlorean: a certain way to see if you have signal quality problems is to compare PC fromt USB ports and back USB ports. If back ports consistently work better, your player has bad signals (and your PC has bad front ports, but that's another issue)
21:19:21BigBambifaemir: Not too bad :)

21:23:16Lloreangevaerts: Well, I won't be able to do tests with a PS3 for a day or two, probably. It's still packed somewhere, but as long as it's not suffering hardware failure, remind me and I'll do it. :)
21:23:38gevaertsOK. I'll try to remember
21:23:42LloreanMe too.
21:23:45LloreanWhy's the PS3 interesting?
21:24:11GodEaterit has shit power supply to it's usb ports in my experience
21:24:21faemirBigBambi: isn't it a bit silly to download the manual to ipod in rbutil when it can only do pdf or html in a zip? =/
21:24:31gevaertsBecause no one has tested the stack with it yet
21:24:33soapFor a forum cleanup it would be interesting to have a "moderation by consensus" function. Move all posts of questionable value to one area where they get "voted" on (based on perceived merit) by the staff. Ubermods could exercise veto powers.
21:24:56GodEatergevaerts: I can test that right now if you want
21:25:07BigBambifaemir: Well that way you carry it with you so you can look at it on any PC even without net connection
21:25:08gevaertsGo ahead I'd say
21:25:12GodEaterI assume you want both native "PS3 OS" and running linux ?
21:25:34gevaertsThat's probably best. Running linux gives some sort of baseline
21:25:47faemirBigBambi: what about say reading it on your ipod? XD
21:26:03jhMikeSgevearts: that's what it's for and for thread context only
21:26:23GodEatergevaerts: I've not updated by build since Friday - should I update ?
21:26:36*gevaerts checks the svn log
21:27:09GodEaterLlorean: I thought you said your PS3 was packed away ?
21:27:38Lloreansoap: So a "To be voted on" forum and an "Old, gone" forum, both hidden from public view?
21:28:10gevaertsGodEater: depends on when friday. r16457 is the last change that might influence behaviour I think.
21:28:21GodEaterI'll update to be safe then
21:28:30LloreanGodEater: "Packed away" meaning "Hooked up and folding, but at a location I'm not" technically. I'm picking it up in a day or two.
21:28:44BigBambiBy the time it has been voted on won't it be a bit late? To the poster it looks deleted anyway
21:28:47GodEaterLlorean: I did wonder how it could be logged in from inside a box ;)
21:29:14LloreanSorry, everything I don't have access to right now is, in my mind, "Packed away".

21:30:15 Quit TMM ("Ex-Chat")
21:30:21scorchesoap: forum cleanups usually tend to end up half done due to the sheer number of posts that have to be dealt with
21:30:32*GodEater wonders if there any other fellow rockboxers with PS3s he could add as friends
21:30:35Lloreanscorche: I was suggesting a rolling cleanup.
21:30:56scorchein what sort of way?
21:31:06LloreanBasically, make these new forums available, and any time someone is bored, they can move a few old or "repeat" posts there.
21:31:36LloreanBasically, anything over 2 weeks old is fair game, and any posts that don't add anything (all content is in the manual, or all questions are answered in the manual) can be moved to a hidden, unsearchable archive.
21:31:47LloreanThe goal being to make search results more relevant, over time.
21:32:20BigBambiLlorean: Are the really old archived pre new-layout forums still required? I'm willing to bet some people search wihout excluding them
21:33:14scorcheheh...that would be the half done section
21:33:17LloreanBigBambi: Not any more, I think.
21:33:22LloreanI was planning on hiding that first.
21:33:47BigBambiI think they can be hidden from general view quite happily
21:35:52LloreanOriginally I kept them around to ease the transition, but now I'm quite sure if I hide them, I'll just get PMed with "Why was this thread I'd bookmarked removed" if someone cares.
21:36:21BigBambiIf they are looking at info from back then I think they are in trouble

23:18:06amiconnIt's an inversion in the sense that the set pixels are brighter than the background pixels, i.e. the opposite of the normal non-colour targets
23:18:15 Quit gromit` (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
23:18:23amiconnThe fact that the black pixels are not completely black is a non-ideal contrast, as known for LCDs
23:19:34amiconnIt might be slightly more flexible in the sense that we can also simulate the non-ideal behaviour of the display. I don't think this is a good idea
23:19:39roolkuI suppose it is a question how realistic a look we want
23:19:50amiconnBut the disadvantage is that it inverts *everything*, i.e. also the greylib

23:20:15amiconnAnd you certainly don't want to view your photos as photographic negatives...
23:20:22*Bagder spots "the most recent build took 3mins 59secs" ...
23:20:49*gevaerts is proud to have triggered that build
23:20:55amiconnA separate inversion flag would avoid that
23:20:58Bagderwell triggered!
23:21:52roolkuamiconn: but this is a feature of the display as well, isn't it? the fact that forground is brighter than background?
23:22:17amiconnYes, so the greyscale lib has to adjust for it. Easy on target, but needs extra hint for the sim
23:22:22roolkuamiconn: so the lib would deal with that already
23:22:42amiconnThe lib will not handle it itself
23:23:02amiconnThe handling would happen in lcd_grey_phase_blit() - dead trivial, but target only
23:23:47amiconnAnd even if the lib would handle it internally, it would still need a hint. Imho it makes sense to have this info in the platform config file then
23:23:58roolkuand I take it the screen dump works on the unprocessed argument..I see
23:24:00rasherBagder: seems things are faster without my buildserver. Might as well disable it entirely then
23:24:00 Join defukt [0] (n=WTFOMGBB@
23:24:34Bagderwell, it varies over time and it's not easy to tell exactly why
23:25:10gevaertsAs long as those servers are not dedicated, there's bound to be some variation in system load
23:25:49roolkuamiconn: I had a look at the blit function, but without controller docs it seems quite tricky to do - the update function is a nested loop, so using these commands is probably too slow?
23:26:45roolkulet me look the names up...
23:28:09*rasher further breaks things
23:28:24rasherAt least it's not building now, so the table will be unharmed

23:30:28gevaertsbarrywardell: no success ?
23:30:32barrywardellgevaerts: removing the stalls makes my mac no longer lock up on disconnect :)
23:31:12roolkuamiconn: if I understand correctly the lcd_blit and lcd_grey_phase_blit transfer a memory copy of the frambuffer to the controller without breaking it into individual pixels
23:31:24gevaertsThat's good news. Now I just have to test if Windows still connects properly then. I'll do that tomorrow
23:32:01amiconnlcd_blit works just like lcd_update, but from a caller provided buffer instead of the standard framebuffer
23:32:53amiconnlcd_grey_phase_blit is a little more complex: it reads from the greybuffers (phases and values), and calculates the next pixel value (ste or unset) using a bresenham-like algorithm
23:33:23barrywardellgevaerts: I you need me to, I can see if it's necessary to remove them all. It would require a lot of reboots and would be very time consuming though so I won't do it unless you think it's necessary
23:33:24amiconnIt then packs those pixels and writes them to the lcd controller, without intermediate storage
23:33:35roolkuah, okay
23:33:43barrywardellgevaerts: I can test with windows in a vm on my mac now...
23:34:07amiconnThe structure off all these 3 (lcd_update_rect(), lcd_blit() and lcd_grey_phase_blit()) is very similar
23:34:33 Join GrooveStix [0] (n=chatzill@

23:35:51GrooveStixhey folks, I got a question :)
23:36:07gevaertsbarrywardell: I would like to keep the stall() on line 769 (the last one), and those on lines 306 and 307 (in case WAITING_FOR_COMMAND). If I'm not forgetting anything all others are optional in the spec.

23:36:12GrooveStixI got a Gigabeat F10, and my HDD died, so I wanted to replace it... I was looking at the MK2004GAL ones(20 gigs), but is it possible to get one with even bigger capacity ? what can I use with my f10 ?

23:37:02roolkulowlight aparently emailed the manufacturer of the display and they claimed it was a proprietary controller

23:37:43barrywardellgevaerts: ok, I'll do some testing now and report back
23:38:16scorcheGrooveStix: well, you can get larger, but without the bigger backplate, you will only be able to fit single platter drives in
23:38:53GrooveStixscorche: as in the same size as the last one, right?

23:45:54TheBasharCan anyone briefly explain the meaning of any of the following buffer debug screen items: pcm (fraction), alloc (frac), usefl (frac), data_rem, pcmbufdesc?
23:45:59 Quit roolku ()
23:47:07LloreanTheBashar: They really aren't useful information unless you know the code they relate to. Briefly, they provide information about how the buffer is being used by the playback code.
23:47:30cggevaerts: just a theory, not sure if something like this could really happen... if sendout() is called from usb_serial_control_request and usb_drv_send_nonblocking() immediately results in usb_serial_transfer_complete() busy_sending might be left true
23:47:40GrooveStixamiconn: you're God! thanks!
23:47:48TheBasharLlorean: I'm trying to reproduce buffering bug fs#8455 and I thought understanding some of those might help.
23:48:36barrywardellgevaerts: leaving those 3 stalls in doesn't appear to cause any problems on my mac
23:49:12cggevaerts: because usb_serial_control does not use the mutex and sendout() sets busy_sending true only after call tousb_drv_send_nonblocking()

23:50:35gevaertscg: usb_serial_control_request and usb_serial_transfer_complete can't be called at the same time (they are in the same thread). The mutex should probably be there though. Anyway, I think it's the linux usbserial driver reacting badly to the bad signal quality. It seems to work fine at full speed
