00:02:59Lucky_Hello. My Problem is: rockbox on an iPod Video (30 GB) and after shutting down and restarting after some time the battery is always empty. Any ideas? (r17397-080506)
00:09:35LloreanLucky_: Do you mean, when you turn it on again you get a battery low warning?
00:09:47Lucky_it seems to consume (a lot of) energy when turned off
00:11:25Lucky_Llorean: no, it just wents off or does not even start
00:12:15Lucky_Llorean: if i hear for example with a full loaded iPod a few minutes and turn it off and on the next day the battery is (nearly) empty
00:13:18PaulJamhow is the overall performance of the battery? how much runtime do you get in rockbox or the apple os?
00:13:59Lucky_but if I keep it running or use the default firmware the battery lives a few hours, so the battery itself isn't the problem
00:15:19LloreanLucky_: Have you tried running a benchmark on the battery?
00:15:32Lucky_PaulJam: I didn't look at a clock but I think the battery could play about 5 hours or so
00:15:34 Join Zarggg [0] (
00:15:37Lucky_Llorean: no
00:15:56 Quit mirak (Remote closed the connection)
00:16:02Lucky_Llorean: because I did not suspect the battery itself
00:16:24LloreanVery old batteries may trigger Rockbox's "low power" warning on spinups.
00:16:33Lucky_but I could
00:16:57 Quit nedd1 (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:17:12Lucky_it's not a warning it is really empty. sometimes it powers off at the bootloader
00:17:45Lucky_does it help you if I run an benchmark on the battery?
00:18:02n1sLucky_: there's probably a hard low voltage poweroff function
00:18:30LloreanA battery benchmark would give us some clues.
00:18:34Lucky_n1s: and that means?
00:18:37n1sLucky_: how many hours do you typically get out of a fully charged battery?
00:18:51 Quit CyBergRind|w (Connection timed out)
00:19:11n1sLucky_: if the power controllign chip's low voltage limit is triggered it will cut the battery power, no warning
00:21:22Lucky_n1s: I didn't time the hours but I could take the exact time tomorrow
00:21:33Lucky_n1s: a few hours
00:22:09n1sLucky_: I'm asking because significantly shorter runtime is a sign of battery decay
00:22:48n1sso if you get ~ half of the runtime of a new battery i'd say it might need to be replaced
00:23:12Lucky_n1s: the problem isn't a short runtime the problem is that it seems to loose energy during poweroff
00:23:14 Join kkurbjun [0] (
00:24:12n1sLucky_: _both_ shortened runtime and sudden voltage drops are a sign of a worn out battery, if you are experiencing one, it makes sense to look for the other
00:24:40 Quit Arathis ("Bye, bye")
00:27:03Lucky_n1s: okay I could benchmark the exact time tomorrow and I can try to write a statistic of the energy with the benchmark plugin. I could try a few situations like playing until poweroff; playing, short poweroff, playing; playing, longer powerff, playing and so on. but it will take a few days

00:55:10r4v5but it shifts pitch; i don't think there's resampling to just time-stretch though
00:55:15LloreanWhat he means is "hold select to bring up the context menu"
00:55:37LloreanOf course, this depends on your player, not every player has it mapped to that, so see your manual for specifics.

01:21:57MU{lappy}i hope this is developer-channel appropriate. afaict the beast DAC only supports 44.1KHz w/ the current code. 1) am i correct about that? 2) if so, how hard is it expected to be to extend that (ie, how likely is it that i could help change that, as somebody who's mostly-python-but-has-some-C)
01:22:48LloreanRockbox itself only plays back to analog outputs at 44.1 on all the swcodec targets.

01:26:50MU{lappy}heh. sorry if that's documented somewhere. i missed it, i'll just continue resampling everything.
01:27:57LloreanWell, it's something that we (generally) want fixed, where output can be anything that the hardware itself supports, but there's no framework for this yet.

01:29:41 Join HellDragon [0] (i=jd@unaffiliated/helldragon)
01:31:30MU{lappy}it seems like there's the beginnings of one, since there was stub code for changing samplerate in the beast driver, and it just doesn't do anything? the whole solution would be much bigger than just handing output, though, i'd think... :/
01:32:02LloreanWell, changing the sample rate of the DAC is just a part of it.
01:32:10MU{lappy}i'd imagine there's be some sort of business of setting sample rate/format for the next track, and then have it actually applied at an on-track-change trigger?
01:32:58 Quit PaulJam_ (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
01:33:15LloreanYeah, if I understand correctly. The playback engine is geared right now to all data in the PCM buffer being 16-bit, 44.1khz, and all played data is resampled to this during/after decoding.
01:34:48 Nick fxb is now known as fxb__ (
01:36:01MU{lappy}are the decoders expected to do that themselves, or do they decode data as it's encoded, and then pass the buffer to some unified resampling handler?
01:36:26jhMikeSif not done very carefully, the results will be horrible anyway not to mention samplerate switching during playback can sound outright nasty on some targets so gapless between files of differing samplerates will be impossible and muting between tracks needed
01:38:11jhMikeSdsp.c does the resampling btw on the 32-bit output samples
01:38:39 Quit Zarggg ("Pursued by a bear")
01:40:44MU{lappy}instead of a on-track-change trigger, though, a sort of tagged-buffer setup might work, w/ buffers having a very brief header w/ their output settings, and the output driver doing whatever is necessary when it gets a buffer w/ changed options
01:41:04MU{lappy}assuming the data from the next track will always be in a completely different buffer :/
01:42:45MU{lappy}and yeah, gapless would pretty much have to break on rate/format transitions. i don't *think* many albums would cause trouble there?

02:08:30DPi1Hey, does rockbox aim to do a stable release?
02:09:06 Join BHSPitLappy [0] (
02:09:13LloreanMU{lappy}: I think it's horribly, horribly out of date.
02:09:40MU{lappy}look at the C stuff, then?
02:10:03LloreanBest bet, yeah
02:10:42LloreanThe database code should be standalone enough that making a small c app to do it should be reasonable. I think it used to be possible to compile one, but that build is probably broken.
02:10:56DPi1is rockbox aiming to have a stable release ever?
02:11:05MU{lappy}i can still *read* C... too much python has pretty much ruined me for *writing* it :/
02:12:07LloreanDPi1: Exactly one person has entered the channel since last time you asked that.
02:14:07DPi1well there are 130 people in here
02:14:51LloreanMy point is that if nobody answers, and the situation doesn't change, there's no point in asking again. Your question doesn't disappear.
02:16:02LloreanAnyway, doing a quick google search will give you information about the last attempt Rockbox made for a release, and searching the site for "release" will get you more information.

02:18:00MU{lappy}ah, apps/tagcache.* is where i want to look, then. assuming i don't get bogged down in other transcoder details first. thanks.

03:37:15MU{lappy}development. there's another one for community.
03:37:28drf|awayI just bought a Sansa e280 (original, not a v2) from a few days ago - Computer sees it in MSC mode but the installer can't find it, even in manual select
03:37:39drf|awayWell I got a few ideas for stuff anyway :P
03:38:15drf|awayOn the Sansas, (I have a c250 with Rockbox), it would be nice if you could see the current song in the list when pressing enter, rather than it always going to the very beginning of the list (kinda like the existing firmware)

03:41:30JdGordondrfsupercenter: I've never had a problem installing rb on my e200's
03:41:43drfsupercentere280 is still considered a e200, right?
03:41:59drfsupercenterWell I see "Sansa e280 (M:)"
03:42:14drfsupercenterbut using the auto-installer it says "no sansas found", even when I selected type e200 and drive M:
03:42:22drfsupercenterI'd try it manually but I'm afraid to break something./..
03:42:48JdGordonyour definatly sure its a v1?
03:42:55drfsupercenterfirmware is 01.00.something
03:43:17MU{lappy}... yah, but what's the hardware version?
03:43:17r4v5drfsupercenter: you need to dl and run sansapatcher
03:43:36drfsupercenterHow do I find the hardware version?
03:43:43drfsupercenterand o.o, sansapatcher is for manual, right?
03:43:51drfsupercenterI installed it fine on my c250 with the auto-installer
03:43:53r4v5there's something with current rbutil that wasn't detecting the sansa until after i ran sansapatcher on it.
03:44:00drfsupercenterlemme try then'
03:44:06MU{lappy}that i don't know, but the v1/v2 thing is about different revisions of the hardware, isn't it?
03:44:14drfsupercenterbtw, how do videos work on Rockbox?
03:44:21JdGordonput them in the same directory then run sansapatcher.exe
03:44:22drfsupercenterIs it sideways like normal? (I like that feature, I'm a Zune user)
03:44:23r4v5MU{lappy}: yes, but firmware 3.x versus 1.x is how you ID the hardware
03:44:38MU{lappy}ah, ok. then he should be good
03:44:40r4v5JdGordon: you don't even need the firmware to run sansapatcher, i don't think
03:44:56*JdGordon isnt sure what version is compiled in for that build..
03:45:06r4v5fair enough
03:45:19drfsupercenterand speaking of Sansas, there's no way to force a e250 v2 to load in MSC, right? I tried the thing about turning lock on and holding rewind, but it just showed the lock symbol...
03:46:44r4v5i thought there was a mentioning of a way
03:46:55drfsupercenterNot for v2 at least
03:47:00drfsupercenterI tried what the site said, it didn't work..
03:47:10drfsupercenterand I hate having to use my mom's computer to transfer stuff
03:47:18drfsupercenterMTP mode is stupid, thank god the e200s have an option o wi
03:47:20drfsupercenter*to switch
03:47:46r4v5drfsupercenter: update the firmware, maybe
03:48:04drfsupercenterupdate? or downgrade? LOL
03:48:12drfsupercenterAnd heh, now the e280 worked, after I ran sansapatcher
03:48:15r4v5whatever. sidegrade
03:48:16*drfsupercenter is doing a full install
03:48:22drfsupercenterBut can you run v1 firmware on a v2?
03:48:27r4v5you're moving diagonally across mutually broken firmwares
03:48:30drfsupercenter(I really don't care what Sansa firmware, since I use Rockbox LOL)
03:48:35r4v5no, they're different machines
03:48:47r4v5i'm saying on the v2 devices wikipage, it says "
03:48:51r4v5"As of Firmware version 03.01.14A, you can go to Settings/USB Mode and select between three options: "Auto Detect", "MTP" (Media Transport Protocol), and "MSC" (USB Media Storage Class Device aka USB Drive). "
03:49:03drfsupercenterLet me see what I have
03:49:16drfsupercenterwait I can't ATM, I only have one cable
03:49:20r4v5i don't know what you have but there are a bunch of fws floating around if you need to sidegrade
03:49:21drfsupercenter(too lazy to open the new one)
03:49:29MU{lappy}i don't know, mtp being a file-oriented rather than block-oriented protocol has definite advantages

12:34:27pixelmalolmaus: there's no manual for the M3 yet because it is problematic and will probably take a long time to adapt the current style (of button tables mostly) to the M3 remote and main player input - the remotes haven't been considered in the other manuals yet

12:41:07pixelmabut it's important for the M3...
12:43:49BigBambilolmaus: The manual is written in latex with a lot of macros to automatically adjust things for the capabilities/layouts of different players etc. Those all need to be adjusted etc. for the M3
12:44:34BigBambilolmaus: It isn't just a case of writing it - that would be easier the first time but keeping all the manuals up-to-date if they were independent would be even more difficult than it is now

14:14:41linuxstbI'm not an expert on the gigabeat, but there is an initial bootloader in flash ROM, which I assume then loads fwimg01.dat, which (when Rockbox is installed), loads the rockbox.gigabeat file.
14:15:19TaylorKillianalright, thats what i was thinking, thanks
14:16:17TaylorKilliani have gotten qemu to load rockbox.elf and not crash, but thats about all i can get out of it
14:17:06TaylorKilliannot even the bootloader will continue without crashing
14:17:11linuxstbHow much of the gigabeat's hardware is emulated? I assume you've at least mapped some RAM?
14:18:46TaylorKillianI'm not all that sure. I know the cpu should work well enough, and it isn't complaining about the memory
14:19:10TaylorKilliani have looked at the file, but I'm not quite sure how to apply that

19:29:01archos_6000all i see is thi
19:30:53LambdaCalculus37Wow, that page needs a serious re-write.
19:31:03LambdaCalculus37Do you have Rockbox already flashed onto the player?
19:31:12pixelmaI *think* the RomBox wiki page is more up to date, but I keep hearing that descriptions of the Archos flashing procedure need to be updated (and don't know much about it myself unfortunately)
19:31:30pixelmathat applies to the manual as well, I believe
19:31:39LambdaCalculus37pixelma: A lot of the pages are marked in big red letters that the information contained within is seriously out of date.
19:31:55archos_6000no i only added archos.mod and .rockbox to my device

19:33:12archos_6000amiconn, how do i do that?

19:35:48wpyhhi, i have a question about the ipod video 80g port
19:35:51amiconnThe walk through the various items until you see "Flash:"
19:36:17amiconnThere are either some values displayed, or just ??,??
19:36:22LambdaCalculus37wpyh: Go ahead and ask.
19:36:29wpyhI noticed an empty page on the wiki
19:36:35amiconnIf you only see the question marks, you're out of luck and the thing isn't flashable
19:36:40wpyhabout the problems porting RB over to the video
19:36:53wpyhI mean video 5.5G 80GB model
19:37:06wpyhThis is the page:
19:37:08LambdaCalculus37That page is old and holds no meaning anymore.
19:37:21LambdaCalculus37That was before we could figure out how to access the disk on the 80GB models.
19:37:28LambdaCalculus37Rockbox works just fine on them now.
19:37:35wpyhYeah, so I looked at the older revisions to find that the disk access was done in 1024 byte blocks
19:38:00wpyhAnyway, I'm new here, and I didn't search the archives, so...
19:38:04LambdaCalculus37So you can install and enjoy Rockbox with no worries. :)
19:38:08amiconnIt *is* done in 1024 byte blocks, because the hdd in the G5.5/80 requires it
19:38:18amiconn(drive firmware shortcoming)
19:38:30wpyhI'm thinking of buying one now, but I'm planning to swap it out with a CF card
19:38:31 Quit desowin ("KVIrc 4.0.0 Insomnia")
19:38:48wpyhI'm wondering whether it will work...
19:39:04BigBambiwhy get an 80 with its quirks, and not a 30 that is cheaper
19:39:06wpyhUm, so Toshiba didn't release a firmware to fix this?
19:39:23BigBambiIt isn't a bug in that sense
19:39:28wpyhBecause the 80 GB model (supposedly) has better battery life and better screen?
19:39:42amiconnIt should, although if you want to go CF anyway you probably should start from the 30GB model
19:39:49LambdaCalculus37The 30GB models were slightly revised to have the better screen as well.
19:39:51wpyhBigBambi: It's just a limitation though :)
19:39:53amiconnIt's slimmer and cheaper
19:40:16BigBambiwpyh: is the battery any bigger? The 80 has more memory for buffering that is pretty inconsequential if you are going to swap for flash
19:40:22amiconnIf you want looong runtimes, ipods aren't for you anyway
19:40:32wpyhI live in China, so I'll check the local availability :)
19:40:44wpyhI'm buying secondhand :)
19:41:00*BigBambi has something at the back of his mind that says the 80s do in fact have larger batteries
19:41:02wpyhBigBambi: I heard that the battery is bigger
19:41:14PaulJamwpyh: make sure you don't get a Classic
19:41:17BigBambibut as amiconn says, if you want battery life, don't go ipod
19:41:19LambdaCalculus37BigBambi: They have a slightly higher capacity.
19:41:30wpyhYeah, I don't like the Classic's design anyway
19:41:35BigBambiLambdaCalculus37: ok, cheers
19:41:54LambdaCalculus37wpyh: And it doesn't work with Rockbox anyway.
19:42:07wpyhNah, the battery life is not why I go for ipods; it's why I wanted a 80 GB model instead of a 30 GB one
19:42:18 Quit miepchen^schlaf ()
19:42:23wpyhYeah, I heard that the Classic's FW is encrypted
19:42:31LambdaCalculus37wpyh: If we may be a bit bold for a moment? Can I recommend a player?
19:42:43wpyhWonder whether it's the same encryption as the Nano 2G
19:42:55wpyhLambdaCalculus37: OK :)
19:43:17LambdaCalculus37Why not look for a Toshiba Gigabeat F or S series instead?
19:44:06LambdaCalculus37You get good capacity, very good battery life, and no silly proprietary USB "dock" connector.
19:44:08wpyhAh, I considered that option, but didn't find *any* of them online, for sale, here in China.
19:44:17LambdaCalculus37Not even eBay?

20:14:39wpyhBy the way, about the ipod video 80 GB: is it detected by determining the IPod version, or by determining the disk type/model/firmware? I can't seem to find it in the sources.

21:39:19mcuelenaereok thanks; now where are you going to upload these files?
21:39:48linuxstbI've no idea... It will take about 3 days to upload that anywhere...
21:40:21mcuelenaerehmm I think there are some redundant files in there, maybe it could get compressed a bit
21:40:24mcuelenaerebut still, it is huge
21:42:26linuxstbThe 01linux directory is 3.6GB
21:42:53bertrikhas summer-of-code started yet?
21:42:59linuxstbAnd about 1.7GB of that is the toolchain
21:43:11linuxstbbertrik: I think it officially started last Monday
21:43:24mcuelenaereare those (3d party) tools that big? or is that just the source of the linux kernel?
21:43:30linuxstbBut I think some of our students are still doing their exams...
21:43:43bertrikok, nice to hear
21:45:56amiconnlinuxstb: 3 days? o.O
21:46:52linuxstbamiconn: Maybe... It's been a while since I uploaded anything that large.
21:47:14*amiconn would estimate 1 day for uploading 4 GB via his connection
21:48:58mcuelenaerelinuxstb: perhaps only the really interesting files should get uploaded? ie the docs and the patches against linux/celinux/cos/... ?

23:43:30drfsupercenterHey, anyone here know how to update the firmware on a Sansa c200?
23:43:39drfsupercenterThe sansa patcher only installs the Rockbox bootloader...
23:44:52BigBambidrfsupercenter: just unzip the new build to the root of the c200, overwriting the existing install
23:45:04BigBambiOr better still, use rbutil
23:45:14BigBambiEven better, read the manual - it tells you this
23:45:53drfsupercenterI'm talking Sandisk firmware, not Rockbox firmware
23:45:59BigBambithen that is off topic
23:46:07BigBambiThis is #rockbox
23:46:23drfsupercenterI know
23:46:30BigBambiThen why did you ask?
23:46:34drfsupercenterbut I figured that updating the firmware to allow Rockbox and updating the firmware are the same process
23:47:03drfsupercentercan rbutil do anything with Sansa firmware?
23:47:09BigBambiYou don't update the firmware to install rockbox, you patch the existing firmware with the Rockbox bootloader

23:47:54drfsupercenterLet's just say that my Sansa has old firmware that won't let me select between MTP and MSC
23:48:01drfsupercenterSomeone told me yesterday to get this firmware upgrade
23:48:05drfsupercenterI have the file, but don't know what to do with it
23:48:27drfsupercenterI ran sansapatcher with that .mi4 file in the folder, but it didn't upgrade anything
23:48:36BigBambiThe SansaFAQ wiki page might tll you, if not ask Sandisk - I'm sure they give instructions on how to update their own firmware
23:49:25BigBambithere you go :)
23:50:05drfsupercenter"Try rolling back the Sansa firmware to an older version. Download version 1.01.00 from here (choose the letter version that matches your existing firmware). The files are compressed in .7z format; you can download 7-Zip to open them. Now enter Recovery Mode and upgrade the firmware. (Info gathered from here)"

23:52:16gevaertsdrfsupercenter: just be careful with recovery mode. Only copy files that the instructions tell you to copy, don't get creative if something is not clear
23:52:28drfsupercenterwell, how easy is it to modify rockbox code?
23:52:34BigBambiYou have to edit the code then compile to change keys - I agree that some of the current c200 keymap is rubbish, and pixelma has written a patch that vastly improves it, that I can't remember the number of

23:53:06BigBambidrfsupercenter: Incidently, what is funny? If we don't use the correct terms, we get confused, and that way badness lies
23:53:07drfsupercenterWell the e200's is worse
23:53:17BigBambithe e200 is much better IMO
23:53:22drfsupercenterI just bought a e280 and the whole scroll wheel vs. buttons are weird
23:53:29drfsupercenterBut there's no way to adjust the volume when in the menu...
23:53:35BigBambidrfsupercenter: but feel free to change it for your own personal build
23:53:44drfsupercenterI also don't like how pressing Power shuts the song off, why can't it do what the c200?
23:53:51drfsupercenterHow easy is it to do that without breaking something?

23:54:07drfsupercenterHm, is it in binary, or like written out somewhere

23:55:31BigBambipixelma: can be, but you can't ever really break anything
23:55:43advcomp2019i think the old e200 keymap was ok but the new e200 keymap is lots better

23:57:14BigBambipixelma: I still think you ought to go ahead with the c200 as is :)
23:57:29drfsupercenterOne suggestion I have, is to have it so when you press enter to go to the song list, it highlites the song you're listening to so you don't have to start at the top of the list every time
23:57:41BigBambigiven nobody else seems to have taken an interest, and in my mind whatever the shortcomings, it is much better than the existing one
23:57:53BigBambidrfsupercenter: turn follow playlist on
