#rockbox log for 2008-05-26

00:00:21*Nico_P sometimes wishes he had time to get more involved in lowlevel code
00:00:31etkohi guys i have TEAC MP-380 which i alter identified as EM850RB, the chipset should be RK2606A do you have any info on this machine and whether it coul be supported?
00:01:52 Join CyBergRind|w [0] (n=cbr@
00:03:34*Bagder found the data sheet just now
00:04:37Bagderit seems to have no cpu core, only dsp
00:06:48jhMikeSThis illustrates the sort of problem trivially (perhaps too trivially) where "foo" can end up "false" when it should be "true":
00:08:50 Quit mackes ("I'm quiting for now.")
00:10:14Nico_PjhMikeS: the "if (foo)" check should be in the critical section, right?
00:11:29jhMikeSor a 2nd check inside it (double-check locking).
00:11:57jhMikeSthe example is sort of broken but I hope the point got across
00:13:29preglowNico_P: what kind of low-level code do you fancy?
00:14:22Nico_Ppreglow: I wouldn't know, but I've been introduced to VHDL and a teeny bit of ASM at school and I'm quite liking it
00:15:02Nico_Pour current project is to write a compiler with (optionally) 3 different target machines (TAM, x86 and SPARC)
00:15:39Nico_PI think TAM is just an in-house stack-based VM
00:16:52*jhMikeS expands his datasheet collection
00:17:03Bagderetko: so, I would think a port to that architecture is very much work, as I doubt you'll find a free compiler for it
00:17:50Nico_Ppreglow: DSP stuff sounds ike fun, but my math skills aren't the best
00:19:09 Quit [CBR]Unspoken|w (Connection timed out)
00:20:32jhMikeSwhat instruction set is the Rockchip thing? their own?
00:21:32Bagderit doesn't seem to say
00:21:53etkothx badger can you point where can i more info about cpu/maybe disassembler?
00:22:08Bagderetko: there is no cpu core in that chip, only dsp
00:22:20Bagderetko: and I find no details at all on the dsp core
00:22:31etkoi found that's based on something like zsp400
00:22:38etkoaccording to this post
00:23:21Bagder"The ZSP400 is a 16-bit fixed-point superscalar DSP core" ...
00:23:40jhMikeSthe code example looks a bit like a SH+68K hybrid :\
00:24:05etkochip is rk2606A
00:24:18etkoi would just be glad to be able to dump bios :)
00:24:21Bagder <= zsp400 info
00:24:31 Part bawbag31
00:24:53etkohow does software of such thing look? it's just one huge binary blob which is stored in rom directly?
00:25:24Bagderetko: usually we get a firmware upgrade file and analyze that
00:26:04etkoi can provide u with link on rapidshare psoted by somewhere else
00:26:16etkobut i don't know whther it's cripted
00:26:33Bagderwell I have no disassembler for zsp400 anyway
00:27:50preglowNico_P: dsp is fun indeed, and math skills are nice to have, but not mandatory
00:27:57etkoextracted it has rfw extension which seem fishy to me maybe some intermediate format?
00:28:06etkoi burned it onto the player and it works
00:28:07 Join bertrik [0] (
00:28:17Bagderburned it?
00:29:15Nico_Ppreglow: well, I do have some. my major is CS and applied math. it's just that I'm far better at CS than at theoretical math.
00:29:25preglowah, me too
00:29:33jhMikeS <= instruction set details
00:29:33preglowthe only reason i know some maths well is because of dsp :>
00:29:54preglowi pretty much require a practical reason to dive deeper into theoretical stuff, and dsp provided that

00:30:52etkoBagder : when i said burned i meant uploaded it :)
00:30:54Nico_Pyeah I think I work the same. I like math when I can "see it work", e.g I quite enjoy with matlab
00:30:59*Bagder finds a "Rockchip boot editor." ... "Program is all in Chinese with no English translation unfortunately." ...
00:31:23GCTonyHawk7Hey, having some issues syncing my playlists (using MediaMonkey) to the Rockbox on my iPod 5G.
00:33:27preglowBagder: i've got a feeling learning chinese isn't the most wasteful use of time you could indulge in these days...
00:33:36Bagdervery true
00:33:50preglowi don't get the feeling it's a very easy language to learn, though
00:34:20Nico_Pthe people I know who tried enventually gave up

00:35:52Bagderbut not goodie enough to help us much, that I saw at least
00:36:13XqtftqxGuys, whould it be possible for rockbox to see something like a usb thumb drive on the beast, with the adapter it comes with?

01:32:16GCTonyHawk7Wow, is it normal for Rockbox to last about30 minutes on an iPod 5g (battery)
01:36:09GCTonyHawk7Seems like it is just drinking the battery like it's nothing.
01:36:12krazykitdo you get better battery life from the apple firmware? are you using the latest build?
01:36:31GCTonyHawk7Yes, using latest build, and better with the Apple firmware, ya.
01:36:40krazykithow much better?
01:36:57GCTonyHawk7My battery is really weak, lasts about 1.5 hours on the Apple firmware.
01:37:13krazykitah, then it's time to buy a new battery :)
01:37:15GCTonyHawk7Well, I've never had it die... but it threatens a lot.
01:37:48GCTonyHawk7Like, I just charged it, it was on the dock, and I was playing with Rockbox for about 15 minutes, and it says it is half full.
01:38:25GCTonyHawk7Seems like the more options I turn off, the more glitch-free this thing is.
01:38:41GCTonyHawk7I originally set them how I wanted, and it was awful.
01:38:50GCTonyHawk7got REALLY slow and laggy, and crashed a lot.
01:38:56pixelmawhat says it's half full?
01:39:02GCTonyHawk7I went through and turned most stuff off, and now it's decent.
01:39:06GCTonyHawk7The battery level.
01:39:32GCTonyHawk7Ugh, so far, Rockbox is a love-hate sort of thing.

01:39:47GCTonyHawk7If it would just work, I'd love it.
01:40:00GCTonyHawk7But I've yet to use it for more than about 5 minutes without it messing up somehow.
01:40:41GCTonyHawk7It is tempting just to go back to the Apple firmware, which I know works... but, I don't want to.
01:40:52pixelmado you mean the percentage (as a number)?
01:40:52GCTonyHawk7Spent almost 10 hours setting this up, and to just go back would be sad.
01:41:05GCTonyHawk7Ya. the little battery icon.
01:41:18GCTonyHawk7And the time, went from 7.3 hours to 3.6 hours.
01:41:25GCTonyHawk7In about 10-15 minutes.
01:42:22pixelmaicon or number (in percent)? You can ignore the estimated runtime as it's not calibrated for the Ipods (I believe the manual mentions it somewhere too)
01:42:44GCTonyHawk7There is no percent view, is there?

01:46:49GCTonyHawk7Spent a good 4 hours trying to get the skin the way I wanted.

02:03:09saratogaif your battery is that shot, the indicator in rockbox probably won't work too well
02:03:45saratogathe 50% mark is for a new-ish battery
02:04:18GCTonyHawk7I see.
02:04:25GCTonyHawk7I should look into replacements.
02:04:39GCTonyHawk7All my batteries are shot. :P
02:04:52GCTonyHawk7PSP, Nintendo DS, iPod.
02:05:07GCTonyHawk7There's got to be a better way.
02:05:40GCTonyHawk7Any way to change the charging screen with rockbox?
02:06:08saratogai don't even think rockbox has a charging screen
02:07:12GCTonyHawk7I'm looking at it.
02:08:41pixelmayou're probably looking at Apple's disk mode screen
02:09:05GCTonyHawk7Nope, the Apple one looks different.
02:09:42saratogayou're in the apple firmware i think
02:10:01GCTonyHawk7That's with Rockbox.
02:10:02pixelmathat's the "emergency" disk mode of Apple
02:10:24GCTonyHawk7What does Rockbox look like while charging?
02:11:30saratogayeah that picture is the same as the one on the Apple website, so its definately not rockbox

07:19:00DhraakellianI <3 my e260
07:19:14Dhraakellianthe e200 line seems to be pretty good
07:19:38Dhraakellianbut one needs to be sure to get one with the old v1 hardware rather than the newer revisions
07:19:53 Part toffe82
07:19:54Dhraakellian(unless, y'know, they actually want to work on the rockbox port for the v2 hardware)
07:21:39ballI had no idea rockbox worked on any Sandisk hardware
07:22:28ballAnyway, primarily I need something that can record audio
07:22:38ballIf it works with decent microphones, so much the better.
07:22:40advcomp2019ball, yea rockbox works on the e200v1 and c200v1
07:23:53 Part GCTonyHawk7
07:24:30Dhraakellianball: and the e200 does have a voice recorder
07:24:52Dhraakellianalthough I probably should've been sitting a few rows farther up when trying to record lectures
07:24:53advcomp2019the c200 does too
07:25:06Dhraakellianadvcomp2019: I was speaking from experience and didn't remember
07:25:15LloreanThe e200 and c200 don't have decent recording quality though
07:25:17LloreanTheir hardware is limited.

07:25:32ballMy new m250 can record voice memos, but it's 8 kHz and can't use an external mic
07:25:41DhraakellianLlorean: the actual mic, you mean?
07:25:54LloreanDhraakellian: No, internally.
07:25:58DhraakellianI think the e200 is 22kHz
07:26:04DhraakellianLlorean: codec-wise?
07:26:28LloreanDepends on whether you mean codec as "the piece of hardware referred to as a codec" or "the software that encodes the audio"
07:26:29Dhraakelliane200 OF encodes to WAV (ew! for voice... rockbox's mp3 is nicer)
07:26:40LloreanThe OF doesn't matter
07:27:00Dhraakellianc200 encodes it to wma in OF
07:27:04LloreanRockbox can encode to WAV, low quality MP3 (the codec is somewhat optimized for speed over quality) or wavpack.
07:27:12LloreanDhraakellian: The OF does not matter here. This is #Rockbox
07:27:19DhraakellianLlorean: yeah
07:27:33LloreanWell, I shouldn't have had to say it twice. Please see the channel guidelines.
07:27:39ballI would prefer wav to mp3
07:27:52ball(would prefer .au to either ;-)
07:28:52DhraakellianI was just celebrating how much nicer rockbox was?
07:28:52LloreanThe e200 and c200 hardware are restricted to 22khz though, so they don't make good targets. Though if you're doing something that's suitable for .au, I guess low sample rates wouldn't matter much.
07:29:17 Quit linuxstb__ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
07:29:24Dhraakellianyeah, for just recording voice, low-bitrate mp3 would be sufficient, I'd think
07:29:40Dhraakellianwhat would be the optimal settings for it though?
07:30:23ballDepends what you intend to do with the voice afterwards though
07:30:31LloreanIf you're looking for higher quality, the H100 series is better if you need a wider range of gain settings, or if you think you may ever want to record from digital input. The iAudios we support have the potential for higher sample rates than 44.1khz though (though the feature is not offered yet)
07:30:36ballMP3 involves lossy compression, so it's not great for mastering

07:31:27Dhraakellianball: just reviewing lectures and such
07:31:51Dhraakellianwould speex encoding be possible on the fly?
07:32:30LloreanIf someone optimized the codec enough
07:32:55Dhraakelliantoo slow currently for the hardware on which rockbox tends to run, then?
07:33:16LloreanThere is no currently
07:33:35ballOn hardware with a mic input, does Rockbox support uncompressed audio recording?
07:33:39LloreanIt's not as simple as just throwing it on there and testing how close to realtime it is.
07:33:46Lloreanball: As I said, it supports wav and wavpack
07:33:55ballLlorean: thanks.

10:00:45LloreanBugs, not devices.
10:02:10scorchecouldnt reproduce any of the bugs, but it just skips a few songs (including having the incorrect - the one it played - next song in the next track tag) and then fails to load the ID3 for the next...then when i go back, it will skip a couple back and then play things correctly
10:02:14scorchereally odd and annoying
10:02:41Lloreanhave you been skipping, or did it happen when left on its own?
10:02:47scorcheleft on its own
10:02:58scorchealthough i think skipping was involved too
10:03:20scorchehappened on my sansa, gigabeat, and H120 in unreproducible manners
10:03:48LloreanI know there's some strangeness with playback when skipping, but I haven't seen it when left absolutely alone
10:04:24LloreanI can't reproduce the skipping behaviour reliably yet beyond "skip forward, and it will eventually happen, seems to happen more if your skip triggers a spinup"
10:05:12scorchei seem to remember at least once where it was left alone (at least i think so...)
10:05:23LloreanMaybe it's getting worse. =/
10:05:54linuxstbJdGordon: Looking at your viewports patch, one line jumps out as being wrong - "if (letter < 'a' || letter > ('a' + WPS_MAX_VIEWPORTS))" in wps_parser.c (> should be >=, or subtract 1). Plus, shouldn't "letter" be called "label" to be consistent with the other parts of the code? Also, why limit the labels to the number of viewports - just allowing a-z might be nicer for a user (and easier to document).
10:06:05scorchegood...hopefully it can mutate into a reproducible manner =P
10:06:53peturLlorean: re the c240 detection, he said it showed up as two disks when he attached it... I'll try at noon myself...
10:07:05JdGordonlinuxstb: hmm, forgot to change that.. yes it was limited before because the viewport index was actually stored as that tokens data, but now its stored as a letter its fine
10:07:06scorcheLlorean: when i got my H120 and loaded a new build on it, i originally thought it was worse on that platform, but it did have a massively newer rev
10:08:16JdGordonlinuxstb: I'll fix it to be able to use uppercase also... but the user needs to remember he only has 16 viewports to play with anyway
10:09:14Lloreanpetur: That means it was in MSC mode. Strange.
10:09:33Lloreanscorche: I've only got experience with it in Gigabeat so far.
10:10:29scorcheLlorean: it is definitely on other targets
10:10:41scorchelikely swcodec-wide
10:10:45linuxstbJdGordon: I'm not sure there's a need for uppercase as well...
10:11:18Lloreanscorche: I didn't mean to suggest it wasn't. Just meant I hadn't done much testing on other targets
10:11:22JdGordonoh, ok then
10:11:27*scorche nods

10:16:12JdGordonhmm.. I tihnk your right there...
10:16:33JdGordonoh, while your looking at that code... shouldnt the loop to disable the images be outside the viewport loop?

10:19:42JdGordondinner time
10:20:34linuxstbJdGordon: I'm not sure about that image loop. Maybe it should be inside the viewports loop to allow the same images to be used in multiple viewports...
10:26:01linuxstbJdGordon: Also, (this is just a personal preference), but I don't like the logic of the "called_refresh_mode" variable. I would reverse it, and create a new variable called "vp_refresh_mode", which stores the refresh mode for the current viewport being processed (defaulting to refresh_mode). IMO, it's then clearer in the code that "vo_refresh_mode" is something that relates to the current viewport.

22:49:03linuxstbThe plugin is still there (your first link), but you'll need to apply that patch to the Rockbox source code, and compile your own version of Rockbox which includes that plugin.
22:50:09bertrikthe patch still applies, except for the CATEGORIES file
22:50:14BenThat sounds like too much coding for me
22:50:39Bagderwell its only playlist, make a new
22:52:27BenYeah, I guess. What I'm really aiming for is the playlists from WMP11 to be put straight onto the iRiver. Even if I could convert the .wlp format to .m3u, this would be no use on my iRiver because the playlist points to music on my PC harddrive, NOT on the iRiver itself. The file paths are wrong.
22:52:35 Join fyrestorm [0] (

22:56:58BagderBen: yes, I would think so
22:57:22bluebrotherRockbox strips leading paths. So you just need the same structure "inside".
