01:05:01gevaertsI don't know

01:28:59saratogasoap: charging over USB doesn't actually involve the USB on most targets
01:29:21saratogatheres generally just a voltage regulator hooked up to the USB +/- lines
01:29:46saratogathat will happily draw as much power as you tell it to, regardless of the status of the USB stack
01:30:12saratogatechnically you're not supposed to draw more then 100ma without telling the USB host that you're taking that power
01:30:19saratoga(err current)
01:30:35saratogain practice, I don't think it actually matters
01:31:09*gevaerts is a spec pedant and does think it matters ;)
01:31:18saratogaat least on the e200, the OF will draw power before its even enabled the USB hardware, and that seems to work on pretty much any hardware, although technically its not allowed by the spec
01:31:53saratogaso for now i don't believe we enable charging on any of the software USB devices because we do not have the USB in place

01:41:09amiconnX5 and M5 and all PP502x targets I know of only charge slowly in rockbox. M3 doesn't charge at all in rockbox atm
01:42:39soapThis is a bit off the Rockbox trail, but is there any reason to believe lithium batteries suffer from a slow charge? (I'm not aware of any)
01:43:08soapI guess the real question is - Are LiIon batteries charged fast because "they can" or because "they should"?
01:45:01Lloreansoap: I think it depends on the conditions. Could a slow charge, in theory, leave the battery hot for a longer time?
01:45:41amiconnI would think that slower charging actually extends battery life

02:35:36amiconnThe way how virtualization works, one virtual core can never use more than one physical core for real mode code (== application code). And vmware only supports virtual smp with up to 2 cores (and you need to configure that explicitily, and the guest os needs to support smp)

03:38:02saratogaits something like 100 cycles at current x, 500 cycles at current y, etc
03:38:41LloreanSo should we have an option in Rockbox as to whether it charges quickly or slowly on targets where this is possible?

03:39:06saratogait actually doesn't make a huge difference in charge time

03:39:31 Quit cendres (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
03:39:44LloreanThough I suppose it really does just kinda depend on how big a difference it makes.
03:39:54soapI swear they don't make them like they used to. I have a LiIon battery in my P-133 laptop which still holds a decent charge. 13 years old.
03:39:57saratogaif you don't need a full charge, it doesn't make a huge difference, lipoly batteries charge sort of logirthmically, so its always very fast for the first 60% (or so) and very slow for the remainder
03:40:21saratogasoap: thats probably not a lipoly battery, i don't think they made them back then
03:40:36saratogaprobably a metal hydride or whatever they were called
03:40:37soapion, not poly (FWIW)
03:40:40soapno, lithium
03:41:45saratogaanyway, the OF charges way faster then I would feel comfortable with otherwise, so i think rebooting into it is a good option if you must charge as much as possible in 30 minutes or whatever
03:43:02soap(just ran down and checked)
03:45:01Lloreansaratoga: Maybe to drive up those replaceable battery sales. ;)
03:45:03XavierGrkkurbjun: cheers, I am looking forward to see that in the future! :)
03:45:13LloreanBut, as long as we charge slower than the OF, people are going to file bug reports on it from time to time.
03:45:23LloreanSo an option to charge as fast as the OF (disabled by default) might be a good idea.
03:49:14*JdGordon|uni agrees
03:50:17LloreanMaybe name the two options "Optimal" and "Abusive" (or in seriousness, "Quick Charge") so people recognize that the slower one is meant to be "better" in some way
03:50:59JdGordon|unistandard and abusive...

03:54:56soapshouldn't the way most (all?) original firmwares do it (fast) be called "standard" and the proposed slow way be called "gentle"?
03:56:07soapin that the "point of reference" for most people is going to be the original firmware - ie the word "standard" will be judged against such a point of reference.
03:56:18*Llorean intentionally avoided "standard" for that reason.
03:56:47LloreanI'm also not sure "Quick Charge" should mirror the OF in every case, sometimes for all we know they could be closer to our choice for Gentle.
03:57:18LloreanI'd rather we just pick a Fast and Slow value of our own, but never make the Faster one slower than the OF (or the slow one faster than the OF if there's an incredibly slow OF out there)

04:07:48saratogait sounds like a lot of progress is being made, but i'm not clear on how much work remains

04:09:34Gartrali havent had any luck... but anyway... why are downloads for m1.0.5 of RBUtil down?

04:10:17Lloreansaratoga: Dunno.
04:10:55Gartralonly the mac one seems too work... and i dont have a mac comp
04:11:02LloreanI just downloaded the windows one.
04:11:22*Llorean downloads the linux one too.
04:11:28Gartrali click the windows link and it gives me a 404
04:11:44LloreanIt may mean that you're getting redirected to a download server it hasn't propagated to.
04:12:20Gartral <- this is the link i get from clicking the download
04:12:42Lloreanyes, and that link downloads a file for me.
04:13:04Gartralbut it says 404 for me

05:12:57kkurbjunbut datasheets are nice too
05:13:20kkurbjunall we got was hw :)
05:14:57zeroth__whats interesting is that, for my current player, the Creative ZEN, the SOC inside is actually fully documented... the company, Sigmatel has a port to linux for it.
05:15:26kkurbjunthat's really nice

06:04:34atruscool. i'll have to go shopping then :)
06:04:59 Part fujin
06:11:33soapThe conflicting reports might be due to the fact that the Sansa original firmware will not read the 8GB SDHC card, but Rockbox will. You will therefore be advised to use a USB card reader (and writer) to write to the card efficiently.

09:09:06LloreanOh, right
09:09:29LloreanFor defining buttons in the WPS screen, might it make sense to just give a viewport an action?
09:09:53LloreanSince they can't overlap, any touch on that viewport would do that action. So if you want an image to be the RW button, you put it in its own viewport and make it that action
09:10:56JdGordonfor the wps i was planning on adding a region tag which would let you specify a rectangle and an action for it.. a bit more flexible than viewports because we can store much more of then without wasting RAM, and it means we dont get wps' needing 30 viewports to just draw the play/next/prev icons

11:16:00McDeezyyou could be energy effiecnt making a single core at 100mhz
11:16:41B4gderI'm just not seeing why dual-core would be so strange
11:16:42LloreanMcDeezy: Many modern MP3 players seem to take the dual core approach
11:16:55LloreanThough the more modern method is using a DSP as the coprocessor in a more specialized role
11:16:58B4gderlots of SoCs in general have dual (or more) cores these days
11:17:26LloreanEven with an awful lot of optimization, we find 80mhz somewhat constrictive, but nobody has put the time into splitting tasks between the cores yet. It would at least insure that load from the UI doesn't interfere with playback, and vice versa.
11:17:36LloreanIn theory, and if well split, at least.
11:17:58McDeezyHow does PHASE and Sonic run so well
11:18:02McDeezyon 80mhz
11:18:17*Llorean doesn't even know what those are.
11:18:18B4gderwhat's that?
11:18:25McDeezythe ipod games
11:18:28LloreanFirst off, it's dual core.

11:18:43LloreanB4gder: OF games, I assume
11:18:46McDeezyPhase and sonic the hedgeohog
11:18:52B4gderbut are they for the oldish ipods?
11:19:02McDeezyjust video
11:19:26LloreanB4gder: Nano 3, Video, and Classic for Phase at least
11:19:34LloreanWhich means they probably make use of the Broadcom for graphics acceleration
11:19:47LloreanMcDeezy: The iPod classic and newest Nano have a much faster chip in them.
11:19:48B4gderyes, and nano3 and classic have more power
11:20:00McDeezythen the video?
11:20:03LloreanThe iPod Video has a *third* processor, the Broadcom chip which is more or less an unknown.
11:21:48McDeezydo homebrew devs have access to it?
11:22:17***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
11:22:32B4gderwe have no "access" to any parts really
11:22:50B4gderbut people have figured out the main CPU parts
11:22:56LloreanOr possibly we have 'access' to everything, since we're the firmware, we've just taken it for ourselves, and don't know how to talk with it.
11:23:08*Llorean thinks it might depend on the definition of "access" in this case.
11:23:22McDeezywouldnt it be an API call
11:23:32LloreanWhat API?
11:24:03McDeezyIs there a specific code for iPODs?
11:24:08McDeezywhat is the dev code?
11:24:10B4gderin Apple's OS there's probably an API yes
11:24:13LloreanRockbox is a replacement firmware.
11:24:20LloreanThe only APIs are those we implement for ourselves.
11:24:21B4gderMcDeezy: we write Rockbox
11:24:42McDeezyOh shit yous are the devs?
11:24:46LloreanIt's not something that runs on top of Apple's software. We aren't just "homebrew" running like the Apple games.
11:25:17B4gderRockbox is from scratch, on the metal, without anything Apple'ish
11:25:57McDeezyI see so your still learning how to utilize things?
11:26:11B4gderand we'll never stop since we have no docs
11:26:28McDeezyThey dont release docs on the hardware?
11:26:52McDeezyIs it possible to reverse the apple firmware
11:26:55McDeezyand learn from that
11:27:14McDeezyis that what you guys have been doing/
11:28:37McDeezyso these devs that program OF games for Ipods
11:28:43McDeezyhow do they get there documentation

11:31:10LloreanBecause 1) It's probably much higher level, as you mentioned API calls, and things we cannot use. 2) If we had it, it would almost certainly have legal restrictions on it preventing us from using it even if it were helpful.
11:31:50McDeezywell you could create your own API calls couldnt you just learning from it
11:31:58B4gderwe have our own api
11:32:46LloreanIf you see a gear shift, you can figure out how to shift it, but it probably doesn't give you many clues to how a transmission works.
11:33:10LloreanThey'd be plenty useful if we were interested in writing apps to run in the Apple software, but that's not what this project is.

11:43:49preglowmaking a full quality gb emulator run in on an 8mhz 68k is flat out impossible
11:44:27McDeezyi swear to god i saw it with my own eyes
11:44:27Lloreanpreglow: TI-83 is an 8mhz z80, I think.
11:44:38preglowif it's a z80, it's another matter
11:44:38McDeezyit is z80
11:44:49preglowi thought all ti calcs were 68k
11:44:54LloreanJust the later ones
11:44:59*GodEater wonders why this makes a difference
11:45:14LloreanGodEater: Gameboy Classic is the same instruction set, or compatible one, I think
11:45:20GodEaterah ha
11:45:22preglowwell, then it can run the gameboy code natively with some hacks
11:45:27preglowand it pretty much has to
11:45:44LloreanIt's basically just a faster gameboy, and since you've got no sound, very little in the way of emulation
11:46:00LloreanWell, 'very little' relative to what we have to do.
11:46:15McDeezythe 83+ could play .wav
11:46:25McDeezyvery small wavs but it did it
11:48:52McDeezywhat does the record featrue do
11:49:50LloreanMcDeezy: Records from the line in on the dock connector.
11:53:50McDeezyDamn thats sick
11:54:00McDeezyis the HDD in the ipod a normal HDD?
11:54:28LloreanWe'd call it normal, sure.
11:54:54McDeezymy friend said it doesnt support alot of writes
11:55:10*amiconn would say the one in the G5.5/80 isn't entirely normal
11:55:40McDeezyis it ok to use it as a disk
11:57:01LloreanPeople who depend on iPods as a backup solution are often disappointed. They support plenty of writes, but generally suffer a lot more abuse (from being used actively) than say a normal USB storage solution, which is generally only ever moved while not in use.

15:20:27JdGordonis there any reason we cant change it to read in a descriptions text file and let the user manually check which files they want removed?

15:23:02preglowit would still make sense to categorize by os, if you ask me, most people use just one os

15:24:49preglowwhich should still be available
15:25:01LambdaCalculus37I still have an iMac running MacOS 9.2.2, and use my Archos JBRv1 on that machine from time to time.

15:27:49linuxstbpreglow: I know "1" is the main firmware. I think "0" is some kind of "pre-installation" firmware - the upgrade process requires you to install 0, then 1. I think 0 does a low-level format/rescue of the device.
15:28:16*LambdaCalculus37 checks his devices to see how the disktidy menu is laid out
15:29:11JdGordonLambdaCalculus37: I'm tihnking a multi select list with "all", "none" and "GO" at the top followed by the available files
15:29:31preglowlinuxstb: how nice
15:29:37austriancoder_preglow: have you found time to look at my patch?
15:29:52JdGordonhmm.. actually no... just replace the current "files to clean" item with the multi select list
15:30:24JdGordonmaybe with an option for presets for the different OS'?
15:30:54LambdaCalculus37Something that's simple enough without making disktidy too complicated.
15:31:33preglowaustriancoder_: just moving hw dependent stuff from sound.c to drivers?
15:32:15*LambdaCalculus37 thinks that FS #8637 may not be that bad of an idea...
15:32:48austriancoder_preglow: more or less... yep...
15:33:01LambdaCalculus37Only thing is getting people to understand how to config disktidy to their liking.

16:07:01austriancoder_can somebody explain me what set_prescaled_volume execlty does and what a presacle is? Also why i need to call it when i chage most of the other sound settings? /firmware/sound.c
16:08:50markunaustriancoder_: looks like clipping prevention for the bass and trebble settings or something
16:08:58preglowaustriancoder_: the prescaler compensates for bass boosts, to prevent clipping
16:09:40preglowbass boosts/any kind of boost
16:10:18 Quit perrikwp (" ajax IRC Client")
16:11:12austriancoder_so set_prescaled_volume is only needed when bass, treble or volume gets changed?
16:11:51preglowyes, afaik, and it's only needed when volume gets changed if treble/bass controls are active
16:13:11preglowit's basically just a measure to make sure that audio does not clip during tone controls processing, like if i want to boost bass 12 dB, i can decrease the audio amplitude by -12 dB before processing, then increase master gain by 12 dB after processing
16:13:28preglowonly change to the user is that tone controls do no distort when they would have without prescaling
16:13:43preglowhowever, this only works if there is enough headroom in the master gain to compensate for the prescale
16:13:55preglowso it does not work if you're listening to audio at the highest volume settings
16:14:22 Join midgey [0] (
16:14:25austriancoder_okay.. i see
16:14:58preglowit's also the cause of a nasty glitch on those targets that need software tone controls, since the prescaler is software there and has latency compared to the master gain...
16:15:04*preglow wants low-latency dsp :/
16:16:59austriancoder_amiconn: do you know why MAS3587F needs no set_presacled_volume() and MAS3507D needs it?

19:58:53ErenI hope we will be able to sync our rockbox based iPods with PC via usb-cable

20:00:04killzonehow do you boot up the origional iriver firmware in UMS mode on a MTP, H10 after rockbox is installed?
20:00:05markunmaybe after the gigabeaSt port
20:00:06BigBambiwebguest: If someone writes it (in an acceptable manor) I'm sure it'll be considered
20:00:14killzoneI can boot to the MTP iriver firmware just fine

20:23:49bertrikhas rockbox ever been ported to a 16-bit architecture?
20:24:02webguestsuring = during
20:24:12amiconnbertrik: There were the beginnings of a gmini 1xx / gmini sp port
20:24:24amiconnCalmrisc 16 ...
20:24:54LambdaCalculus37But that code's been wiped from the source tree, hasn't it?
20:25:22webguestso if it is flash access there is no fix?
20:25:27bertrikwebguest: I have a sansa e260 and I have no such problem, so I'm afraid I can't help you
20:25:40bertrikwebguest: is it a constant noise or do you hear some kind of pattern in it?

20:26:03amiconnLambdaCalculus37: Only the target specific parts. The (partial) datatype adjustments were kept
20:26:24amiconnBut calmrisc16 is a nasty architecture
20:26:38amiconnNot only is it 16 bit, but also harvard architecture
20:27:34gevaertsNo overwriting code by accident ! That must be good !
20:28:06amiconnHah, but the gminis have no ram that can be used as instruction memory
20:28:22amiconnAll instruction memory is flash, ram is only usable for data

20:31:34DerPapstalmost everything is possible, but someone has to do it
20:31:53DerPapstand if no one is willing nothing will hapen
20:31:54amiconnOther than that, I would have been happy to see rockbox running on the gminis. Gmini 1xx / SP were 2.5" HDD, 128x64 monochrome LCD targets. The plans also included porting to the Gmini 2xx, which would have been the first (and only) 4-bit greyscale target
20:31:59amiconn(16 shades)
20:32:02DerPapstso feel free to start the port :-)
20:32:04gevaertsAndyI: I would say possible, but very hard
20:32:37LambdaCalculus37So you have to be willing to really study hard and learn everything you can.
20:34:47amiconngevaerts: Another problem back then was (and probably still is) the compiler. There is an experimental gcc port, but I had/ve my doubts regarding its output
20:34:58amiconnAfaik, gcc is designed for 32 bit (and higher)
20:35:40gevaertsThere are a few 16 bit targets around, but they seem to be rare and not very well supported (at least not merged into the main tree)
20:35:41bertrikwebguest: Just guessing about the radio, but I can imagine that unmuted FM radio input could cause the noise. OTOH, I think that if this was the case, it would have been detected earlier by sansa devs
20:36:48bertrikwebguest: in one of the debug menus you can force the processor to run at a higher speed (80 MHz) instead of 30/24MHz. You could try that out to see if it makes a difference

23:51:57ZincAlloyI still don't get why anyone would need these anyway...
23:52:13stripwaxsome people actually use eq
23:52:14 Quit saratoga ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
23:52:19bluebrotherbecause it's called "wow"?
23:52:39H10eri think they sound good
23:52:45 Quit ZincAlloy ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
23:52:54preglowH10er: nothing quite like srs, no, that's a secret and proprietary algorithm
23:53:09H10eryeah, tell me about it. EQ on the H10 is a menace...
23:53:09bluebrotherI thought that too ... before I started to _really_ listen to music

23:53:19preglowH10er: our eq is pretty decent, though
23:53:23preglowor so people tell me...
23:53:35H10eri know. it's the player that's a potato
23:54:08ZincAlloyI haven't ever heard any consumer "sound enhancement tool" that really improved sound..
23:54:08bluebrotheror maybe the 48kbps wma is crap ;-)
23:54:35H10eri don't use WMA nor 48kbps
23:55:06ZincAlloyan eq is only as good as the person who's turning the knobs..
23:55:09H10eryou can't improve sound
23:55:24gevaertsyes you can. If it's bad, you can mute it ;)

23:55:37H10ersure, but there seems to be a buffering problem
23:55:46stripwaxwith rockbox or the OF?
23:56:16H10erthe playback has gaps when eq switched on and presets take forever to load
23:56:45bluebrotherthat's a performance issue, not a buffering problem
23:56:55bluebrotherthe cpu simply isn't powerful enough.
23:57:03H10eri don't know, i;m not the expert!
23:57:08ZincAlloya good mastering engineer can.. but that doesn't matter much when you mess up his product with SRSwow :)
23:57:10H10erpitty again!
23:57:16bluebrothercheck the FAQ ...
23:57:20stripwaxcan I use objdump to confirm that an object file has been built with thumb instructions?
23:57:35bluebrothertry a file format that requires less CPU to decode. Or use less bands in the eq
23:57:57stripwaxH10er - I'm pretty sure vorbis uses a lot less CPU on H10
23:58:11H10erZincAlloy - not everyone is an audiophile!
23:58:15bluebrotherand you can improve sound. For example, you can decrackle old vinly records.
23:58:28bluebrotheryou just can't make music out of crap, that's the problem
23:58:37ZincAlloydecrackling is not necessarily an improvement
