#rockbox log for 2008-05-14

00:00:04preglowamiconn: yes
00:00:14preglowamiconn: the nand is accessed at the lowest level
00:00:21shotofaddsyep, there is essentially no hardware flash controller
00:00:38*amiconn wonders why they chose such a bare-bone approach
00:00:58shotofaddsit certainly provides an interesting challenge...
00:01:13amiconnEven the ooold Ondio's built-in flash is actually an MMC in a standard chip package (bga)
00:01:20preglowamiconn: well, what other solutions are there, apart from nand with sd controllers and ata bridges?
00:01:32 Quit dabujo ("( :: NoNameScript 4.2 :: )")
00:02:14amiconnOne of the standard interfaces, i.e. SD, MMC, ATA (or nowadays maybe CE-ATA)

00:02:28preglowamiconn: i sure as hell would have preferred that
00:02:30amiconnActually CE-ATA uses MMC protocol
00:03:06amiconnThe Sansas use SD (with that proprietary banking extension)

00:05:56amiconnActually they might, given that D2 uses full size SD
00:06:14amiconn32GB CF are definitely available :)
00:06:33preglowin that package, no surprise
00:07:48preglowcan you get 16 gig usd cards?
00:07:51shotofaddssandisk's 32gb is apparently available mid-June
00:08:00shotofaddsSD, that is
00:08:00preglowat a hefty price, i'd imagine
00:08:06shotofaddsnaturally :)
00:08:17preglowprobably more than i paid for the d2
00:08:21amiconnBecause it's sandisk, or what?
00:08:49shotofaddssandisk SD cards are >50% more expensive than other brands, at least in the UK
00:08:53*amiconn doesn't think his 32GB CF was too expensive
00:09:12preglowsandisk are more expensive here as well
00:09:13amiconnBranded, but not sandisk
00:09:21preglowbut then again, the sandisk cards are usually high-quality

01:22:58saratogaI don't think IDE DMA makes up the difference in runtime for PP
01:23:18saratogathe Sansa has no hard disk and still gets below the retail firmware unless a very fast codec like flac or mpc is used
01:23:29saratogaDMA would probably help, but its not going to close the gap
01:23:43saratogawe waste far to much power on codec decoding
01:24:44saratogaand IRAM does make a big difference for PP in codecs, since most codecs just sequentially load/store memory which is still quite slow since every single cache line must be loaded and then stored
01:26:00saratogafor instance, when doing the TDAC part of the IMDCT windowing process in WMA, I got a ~6% speed up just by putting the samples in IRAM, even though the process only accounted for < 15% of total run time

01:58:07preglowi'm quite sure libmad's quality is better
01:58:22preglowbut we have no good way of accessing a raw retailos decode
01:58:31preglowbut yes, they can take shortcuts, like use 32 bit multiplies
01:58:54preglowi'm almost certain that almost all mp3 player firmwares keep to 16 bit processing

02:00:08amiconnWell, at least on iriver H1x0 we do
02:00:10amiconnJust record the s/pdif signal
02:01:07*amiconn thinks that the coldfire mp3 decoder used in the iriver is inferior to libmad
02:01:17saratogaMAD can actually cheat and do lower precision multiplies too with (supposidly) only a little loss of precision
02:01:20jhMikeSquite honestly, I think the rockbox output sounds better and I really have no bias to prefer one or the other in evaluating it.
02:01:24saratogai don't know if we use it though
02:01:40preglowwe don't
02:01:50amiconnNo idea about any apple OF though (as I can't try them)
02:01:59preglowi really don't want to cut corners like that in rockbox unless we absolutely have to
02:02:13saratogasome of those tricks might make sense though, since the default mad output is good to something like 120 or 130dB, which is rather absurd for MP3
02:02:16preglowi think the potential for sound quality we have is one of our defining features
02:02:27jhMikeSif somhow you can convert some multiplies to shift + add/sub/rsb sequences, you may very well gain speed, at least if it's 32-bit
02:03:00saratogathe trick in mad is mostly to replace 32x32=64 multiplies with 32x32=32 multiplies

02:03:43preglowthen ask it again
02:04:08preglowjhMikeS: most of the muls in mad are 64 bit, hard to change those with shift/add seqs

02:04:44preglowMe: not that i know, i think some work has tasted on deciphering the firmware format, but that's that
02:04:45jhMikeSIt's sort of a per-context thing
02:04:47saratogaare 32x32 multiplies a lot faster then the 32x32=64 type?
02:05:03preglowsaratoga: you do shave off two-three cycles by using them
02:05:19saratogapreglow: thats pretty impressive
02:05:24 Quit Me (Client Quit)
02:05:24saratogait would certainly add up
02:05:32preglowand i'd really, really we don't use them
02:05:33jhMikeSpreglow: "work has tasted" <==?? :p
02:05:43saratogaanyway, I tend to think the precision of decoders is greatly overvalued
02:05:53preglowif we do, i would at least expect some very favorable comparisons
02:06:01preglowsaratoga: even when doing dsp on the output?
02:06:02saratogamarkun broke the WMA decoder last fall in such a way that reduces precision by about 40dB
02:06:08saratogano one has ever noticed
02:06:26preglowsaratoga: that was fixed rather quick, wasn't it?
02:06:33saratogano i haven't bothered
02:06:40jumpatrainhow exactly do you do dsp on the output ?
02:06:59amiconnsaratoga: Actually multiplication speed on arm depends on how many bytes of one of the operands are pouplated. Here are the details: I tried the patch on X5 (Coldfire MCF5250, also having 128KB or IRAM). It sped up decoding of my test track from 482% realtime to 615% realtime!
02:06:59amiconnI've attached the modified patch, which also corrects the checks for PP5022 and PP5024. Those macros don't work like the CPU_* group macros. They are always defined, which would cause v1 to break on any other CPU than PP5022/PP5024. You're supposed to check CONFIG_CPU.
02:06:59amiconnRegarding IRAM distribution - I'd prefer to keep even distribution between core and codecs/plugins, like it's already done in SVN for MCF5250. While IRAM might be quite useful for codecs, it might also be quite useful in the core (e.g. for better DSP code), and there are often also some target specific tasks in the core which profit from extra IRAM.
02:07:02saratogai wanted to look at other ways to attempt his optimization before i reverted it
02:07:09jhMikeS"exactly"? I think the source is needed for that.
02:07:12amiconnBah, what was that! :(
02:07:23preglowamiconn: looks like a paste to me :)
02:07:42amiconnBut not the one I wanted to do
02:07:52saratogaamiconn: since core uses only a very tiny percentage of total CPU cycles, I'm curious what the use of more IRAM would be?
02:08:03 Quit kennyj (Remote closed the connection)
02:09:05saratogai mean, buschel and I's patches, each save more CPU cycles the entire core uses for typical decode (ignoring resampling and EQ I suppose)\
02:09:19amiconnI already mentioned the main purpose (DSP).
02:09:34preglowi don't know how wise it is to keep reserving iram we might never use, though
02:09:36amiconnThere are target specific things like framebuffer
02:09:54saratogado any of our targets with 128k need that though?
02:10:16amiconnEven the 16K extra for codecs are currently unused on MCF5250
02:10:31amiconnI only used them once for an APE test
02:11:03saratogafor PP at least, I don't believe we use even the 48k we've reserved now, so I don't see much point in adding more
02:11:19saratogaand for coldfire, it would be nice to use the same split, so that optimizations apply to the X5 as well
02:11:31amiconnSo I'd keep even distribution for now, and if it later turns out that it's better used for codecs (or for the core), we can change that
02:11:35jumpatraini can hear noise when im listening to silence on this sansa
02:11:38jumpatrainis that normal ?
02:11:56saratogaamiconn: I've got a good use for the extra 32KB right now
02:12:00saratogathe WMA codec . . .
02:12:15saratogai can put the output buffer in IRAM and speed up both decoding and DSP operations
02:12:25kkurbjunIs a 12% power savings worth a little extra LCD startup time after it turns off?
02:12:49kkurbjunI mean how much would that bug people on the gigabeat F do you think?
02:12:53preglowhow much?
02:13:12saratogapresumably the same trick would be applicable to AAC too, since it uses nearly the same windowing process
02:13:14scorche|sh12% is pretty big..
02:13:18pixelmajumpatrain: yes, unfortunately the Sansas are a bit noise (a bit depends on your exact player)
02:13:36kkurbjunit's a split second after the backlight fades in.. you see a white screen for a brief time and then the normal screen comes up
02:13:38preglowsaratoga: aac would love iram
02:13:54jumpatrainpixelma sansa e280.
02:13:57saratogai mean pretty much any pure IMDCT codec should be able to very profitablely use more then 64 kbps of IRAM (as in use it 4 or 5 times per sample instead of DRAM)
02:14:14amiconnsaratoga: If you reduce core iram to 48KB, the M5 will be quite tight (X5 has a bit more room)
02:14:23saratogabecause of it's frame buffer?
02:14:56saratogafor a pure IMDCT codec, you optimally need 48KB of IRAM just for the IMDCT
02:15:07saratogaand thats not counting any of the FFT constants or windowing or any of that
02:15:21saratoga48KB just for the sample data, since each pass of the IMDCT processes 48KB worth of data
02:15:41kkurbjunpreglow, scorche, I tried to eliminate the startup time, but it seems to be a limitation of the on glass LCD controller, not the one in the SOC. I could commit it first and see how people take to it
02:15:57preglowkkurbjun: yeah, but how much extra start time?
02:16:02scorche|shkkurbjun: if it is a split second for 12%.....
02:16:08saratogawith 64 KB, you can start to put things like FFT constants, Windowing constants, and trig tables in IRAM too
02:16:09preglowsplit second can be anything :>
02:16:15kkurbjunit's probably on the order of 15 ms
02:16:21saratogaat 80KB you can fit virtually everything and avoid DRAM pain altogether

02:18:13pixelmajumpatrain: I actually meant small differences in the production, so your unit. Some people hear something, some not, probably has to do with earphones and ears too...
02:18:16kkurbjunok, I'll commit it and see if anyone really hates it :-D
02:18:19saratogaamiconn: how much would you save by putting the buffer in DRAM like on color targets?
02:18:26amiconnI'm not entirely sure, but I think this is because both the main and remote framebuffers are in iram
02:19:02amiconnWhile it's the same situation as on H1x0, the M5's remote framebuffer is larger than the H10's

02:20:25preglownot really
02:20:35preglowi'm usually more than satisfied with just using them
02:20:42amiconnsaratoga: simple calculation: Main fb is 160*128*2/8 == 5120 bytes. Remote fb is 128*96*2/8 == 3072 bytes
02:20:44jhMikeShmmm, HP is primary, then it's mixer
02:21:59saratogai think its radix 2 ?
02:22:37preglowanything else would be foolish
02:22:49preglowwma only uses blocks that are power of two, afaik
02:22:55saratogawell theres radix 4 and split radix
02:23:06saratogayou can in theory do quite a bit better then radix 2
02:23:37preglowsplit radix is usually the best on ordinary cpus
02:23:48preglowwell, whatever this fft is, it surely doesn't look optimal

08:12:37Buschelsaratoga/preglow: regarding your discussion about 32x32=32 multiplies for mp3-decoder. i am doing the same in the mpc-decoder right now. a lot of tweaking via pre-/postscaling the coefficients and samples must be done −− prescaling should also be done with rounding, not via simple truncation.

08:33:08LloreanI seem to recall some discussion about the "IPOD version: 0xFFFFFFFF" being wrong, but I think all 5.5Gs still do that anyway?
08:33:15LloreanAnd probably unrelated.
08:33:29linuxstbThat's unimportant (and fixed in SVN for a long time).
08:33:47linuxstbThat value isn't actually used for anything for the Video builds.
08:34:48LloreanCan we rule out firmware 1.3 (is anyone using it?)
08:35:49linuxstbI'm sure they are - I remember quite a few people complaining (wrongly) about Rockbox not working when they upgraded to 1.3, but that was simply because the bootloader was erased. A re-install of the bootloader fixed it.
08:37:25LloreanI guess chkdsk is a good next step
08:38:29*Llorean thinks filesystem corruption rates on PP targets are uncomfortably high, but doesn't know if he should decide it's based on the size and quality of userbase, or if he should be worried about the software.

09:10:02LloreanI've gotten a few corrupted files on my Gigabeast, but I *think* that was a bad cable.
09:10:10Llorean(in regards to Rockbox USB)
09:10:31pondlifeI mean, we don't write that much at the moment (database building mainly)...
09:10:47LloreanConstant .cfg files updating
09:10:53pondlifeAh, true.
09:10:56LloreanWhich, consequently, is a file we get reports of corruption in quite often.
09:11:12linuxstb_Isn't the "recommended bootloader" simply the latest release on download.rockbox.,org ?
09:11:19Lloreanlinuxstb_: Yes.
09:12:34pondlifeThat's not very visible from the website though.
09:12:54pondlifeDoes RBUtil use for bootloaders?
09:13:07LloreanI believe it's supposed to.
09:13:27LloreanBut a table showing current bootloader version, and giving instructions for determining which one you have, might be nice.
09:13:33LloreanOr "current" and "minimum"
09:15:02*GodEater maintains he's never experienced any sort of file corruption on any of his targets. And I use the stuff too - so there's constant disk writing going on for me.

09:16:44linuxstb_pondlife: The manual should also link to the download server. No binaries should be on the wiki.

09:17:32LloreanWell, I guess no sense worrying until some of us start seeing these corruption problems.
09:18:01LloreanBut there's just a lot of reports on the forums. I wish there was a way to transmit to users that it's probably not caused by Rockbox without sounding like we're just passing the blame.
09:18:17amiconnpondlife: database (if used), config.cfg, nvram.bin (except on real nvram targets), .playlist_control
09:18:38pondlifeI thought gevaerts had seen Sansa SD corruptions regularly.

11:31:00peturand gain set to 48dB?
11:31:27BuXY95well, my max value is 12.0dB (sometimes 12.5 dB)
11:31:38peturgot AGC enabled?
11:32:01BuXY95err, yeah... btw, the recording screen has a bug.
11:32:51peturno, that is intentional ;)
11:33:09peturdisable AGC first
11:33:50BuXY95i have safety agc, and the recording screen has a hidden feature: going down below agc type, the line changes to "agc max gain" :)
11:34:16peturyes, that is intentional to save space on displays with less lines
11:34:22BuXY95and yes, letting agc max gain to 48 dB, i can boost the gain to 48 dB, and that is enough for the mike
11:34:52peturbut anything above 20dB will be noisy
11:35:11BuXY95well, fine, but then at least the lower half of the screen should be scrolling, right?
11:35:12peturso depending on what you want to do, an external amp might be better
11:35:32peturthat is something we're working on

11:39:48*petur hasn't needed the remaining diskspace one give his 80GB disk :)
11:40:50peturand anyway, you should have at least some gigabytes free becuase if the disk is seriously fragmented you'll get buffer overruns and thus gaps in the recording

20:07:10amiconnWell, they *are* different targets in configure
20:07:20mcuelenaereyes, that's true
20:07:21amiconnMany targets are very similar to each other
20:07:36mcuelenaereI thought it would be a bit overkill to have different config-xx.h
20:07:37amiconnE.g archos fm recorder and recorder v2; iaudio X5 and M5
20:08:17mcuelenaeredo the ipod 5.5G 32MB and 64MB have different config?
20:08:20amiconnIn fact I won't consider two targets *very* similar if they even have different lcd resolution and/or depth
20:08:52amiconnNo, since that's only a ram size difference
20:09:16mcuelenaereok, maybe the Zen Vision could be split up
20:09:28mcuelenaerebut the ZVM30GB and 60GB only differences is an other USB chip
20:09:41mcuelenaereso I suppose those don't need a separate config,
20:09:41amiconn...and those 2 use the same target selection in configure

20:10:32 Join spiorf [0] (
20:10:37gevaertsThe difference with the 32MB and the 64MB ipods is that the 32MB build actually works perfectly on any ipod video
20:11:00amiconnI think we should keep the rule that if there are 2 target ids in configure, each of those should also get its own config-*.h
20:11:08mcuelenaerethe 30GB could work perfectly on the 60GB if it weren't for the firmware format signature..
20:11:38amiconnmcuelenaere: Same reason why the archos fm recorder and recorder v2 builds are different
20:11:49mcuelenaereamiconn: so the for the 3 targets, there need to be 3 config-*.h ?
20:12:08amiconnThe rockbox code, and even the scrambling, are binary *identical*. The only difference is the model id in the header

20:12:43mcuelenaereok, then I'll change the files according to Rockbox philosophy :)
20:12:47amiconnI think so, yes
20:13:47amiconnIt's not that each target is *required* to have its own target id, e.g. the iPod G1 and G2 share a build, handling slight hardware differences at runtime
20:14:53amiconnBut then the build works out of the box on both, without any file name differences. The main reason for doing this is that ipodpatcher can't distinguish 1st and 2nd gen ipods, because the OF is also shared
20:15:43preglowlet's make a universal arm build that works on all arm based targets! :)
20:15:44mcuelenaerethe problem is, it requires several target id as the header file of the firmware needs to be different (ie the 60gb won't accept a 30gb fw)
20:16:29amiconnYes, and hence the config-*.h files should also be different, at least if we decide to stay with the current concept
20:17:30amiconnWe could change the concept, but there's always the problem with ifdefing where to draw the line

21:56:07 Part czajkowski
21:56:19preglowbut with different command sets
21:56:27amiconnIn SPI mode it's optional, and on Ondio we just don't care. (the crc bytes still need to be present though)
21:56:39preglowdon't know about spi mode, i don't think we'll need it
21:57:01amiconnSPI mode is for really simple hookups without dedicated SD/MMC controller
21:57:12preglowvery weird, the data i get from the card seems to be correct, it just claims to never have powered up, but controller claims crc failed
21:57:39bertrikprobably stating the obvious, but SPI mode does not require CRC except for two commands
21:58:06jhMikeSis there an auto kick on the build server now?
21:58:34amiconnAh, so it's two for SD. For MMC it's just one - the first one, which then disables crc support
21:58:58amiconnAnd since that first command is constant, the crc is also constant, hence just precalculated

22:03:22jhMikeSI guess it needs to run "svn cleanup" first ?
22:03:34bertrikAFAIK, the data CRC is never required in SPI mode sd cards. The command CRC is required only for CMD0 (go idle state) and CMD8 (send if cond).
22:11:01pixelma<BigBambi> I do agree actually about the use of supported, but it is very easy to slip back into using it <- that's why I started reminding people of it and what do I get? :(

22:16:53preglowwhat resolution should the user timer have to be able to be used the way it currently is in rockbox?
22:17:25*gevaerts wonders if the build scripts in svn are up to date
22:18:35Bagderthe buildmaster script in www/tools is basically the same one running now
22:18:46Bagderwith just some minor changes
22:18:55pixelmaBigBambi: it isn't about winning, I'd hope though...
22:19:05amiconnpreglow: As fine resolution as possible without needing extreme measures. PP is currently the lowest-resolution one
22:19:24amiconn(I think - I don't know the user timer resolution on the gigabeats)
22:19:32BigBambipixelma: I meant you are winning as in you are getting through to people, not as in you are fighting a battle :)
22:19:53preglowamiconn: ok, i'll reserve the 32 bit timer in d2 for user timer, then
22:22:00amiconnPP has 1/1,000,000 sec resolution, coldfire 1/11,289,600 sec, and SH1 has either 1/11,059,200 sec or 1/12,000,000 sec

22:22:41Bagderah ok
22:22:49Bagderthen I'll put that on hold a while more
22:23:08mcuelenaerewhat are the biggest requirements for getting it running?
22:23:08shotofaddsfour 16 bit, two 20 bit, one 32 bit...
22:23:28amiconnWe use 3 (on Player) resp. 2 (all other archoses). One more when debugging MAS data transfer
22:23:33Bagdermcuelenaere: there's usually not a lot once the main build builds
22:24:26pixelmaBigBambi: ok. It's just if you say 'because of (me)' it feels a bit like when our forum friend z. said "follow the rules because the moderators don't like it". :P
22:24:33preglowshotofadds: problem with using the other timers as usec timers will of course be that they won't have enough bits to do any decent timeout intervals :/

22:25:14amiconnpreglow: Are there prescalers?
22:25:19preglowamiconn: yep
22:26:02preglowat least i think so...
22:26:10shotofaddsall timers are based on a single source (currently 2MHz), which can then be divided and pre-scaled individually by each timer
22:26:19amiconnWell, then you might not need to reserve the 32 bit timer as the user timer
22:26:26Bagderok, now all we need is a commit and there should be 3 creative builds
22:26:41jhMikeSBagder: done :)
22:26:50*gevaerts wonders about zvm bootloaders
22:27:06BagderI still can't browse the site though
22:27:10pixelmaBigBambi: sorry, my last sentence doesn't make sense but I see you understood. Anyways I take that as joke now, case closed. :)
22:27:24Buscheldid anyone make proflings of synth.c for libmad? would be intersting to compare the results to synth_filter.c in mpc. the filterbank is the same
22:27:27preglowamiconn: hrm, prescaler varies from 2 to 2^5 for each timer individually
22:27:34amiconnThe SH1 timers are all 16 bit only. If you specify a longer timeout than e.g. 65,536/12,000,000 sec on Ondio, it will start using the prescaler, gradually lowering absolute resolution
22:27:41BigBambipixelma: cool :)
22:27:44preglowthat would be enough for all but the most long intervals
22:27:48shotofaddspreglow: that's the source divider. there's also a separate prescaler (iirc)
22:27:54preglowshotofadds: can't say i find it
22:27:58mcuelenaeregevaerts: what's to wonder about it? :)
22:28:07gevaertsDo they exist ?
22:28:34preglowshotofadds: the 32 bit one has an extra prescaler, but doesn't look like the others do
22:28:38mcuelenaeregevaerts: yes, but they aren't really needed
22:29:06mcuelenaeredo UI simulators require a button for the hold button?
22:30:06amiconnThe prescaler on SH1 is limited to 1/2/4/8, so the max. timer interval is pretty limited
22:30:35shotofaddspreglow: hmmm, you're right. there's no extra prescale except on the 32 bit timer. seems I'm losing my mind...
22:31:17preglowjmworx: ping?
22:31:59amiconnThat means that even the 20 bit timer on TCC will allow longer timer intervals than the SH1 timers
22:32:15amiconn...without needing a prescaler
22:32:33mcuelenaerewhere are the images for the simulators get from? Can I take a picture from and make it fit in or is this a copyright violation?
22:32:54amiconnmcuelenaere: They're usually scans of the device
22:33:25mcuelenaereamiconn: and can I take for example this picture?
22:33:45shotofaddsIt looks like the timer source clock can be divided by 2/4/8/16/32 or 1024/4096.

22:56:13pixelmaand what Sansa?
22:56:14Anon2733BigBambi: Lemme check

22:57:31Anon2733lol, I've already leaked ton's of SanDisk info to the rockbox community a while ago

23:04:05Anon2733pretyy much I'm not exactly sure what info I leaked. I did tech support for SanDisk, so I basically just asked the engineers a bunch of questions that a rockbox dev wanted to know
23:04:06LearThe DB refresh is avoidable (on the e200 at least)...
23:04:17Anon2733a lot of technical stuff that I didn't even understand
23:04:36Anon2733Though I can tell you this
23:05:04Anon2733err, nvm
23:06:05LearYes, never select a language. Refresh is done after that. I never use the OF for other than USB mode, so...
