00:24:20pixelmaxqtftqx: about your question (is it even one?). You really need to be more descriptive if you want help, "it" could mean anything and last time you left without saying how you fixed your last problem...

01:03:42xqtftqxGuys why isnt the test_disk plugin included?
01:04:13LloreanBecause it's not needed at all by normal users.
01:04:35xqtftqxBut it chould be put into the system menu
01:04:49LloreanIt's a plugin...
01:05:05xqtftqxSo? Cant you link to it in the system menu
01:05:14LloreanThere are very few cases where it's useful, and anyone who's editing disk code and needs to test it can also compile the plugin
01:05:34xqtftqxi guess,
01:07:06xqtftqxIm running it here and how do i exit it?

01:07:47LloreanIt's not really intended to be used unless you know what you're doing, and why you're running it.
01:09:03LloreanI mean, seriously, for all you knew it "tested" the disk by formatting it and then writing to the whole disk or something.
01:09:21LloreanIt's just not good to say "Hey, I'll click that"
01:10:12xqtftqxI guess..
01:10:49xqtftqxJeeze i still cant make the boot logo go full screen
01:11:34LloreanDid you read the code, understand everything it did, then adapt it, or did you just try copying bits?
01:11:49xqtftqxIm looking at the code
01:11:53xqtftqxi understand what it does
01:11:59xqtftqxnot every single bit but most of it
01:13:12LloreanThen maybe you should test different parts of it, see which part fails, then figure out why it fails.
01:13:12xqtftqxWhats the file which tells the DAP to display the logo?

02:20:36alleleI was told rockbox plugins are unable to perform division, what about multiplication?
02:23:07LloreanThis is kinda obviously untrue, since the calculator plugin has a division function
02:23:34LloreanWhere did you hear this?
02:23:34scorche|shdivision is just multiplying the inverse anyway
02:24:09scorche|sherrr...wrong choice of words
02:25:20allelenot sure where, the division function in the calculator plugin doesn't use direct division though
02:26:12allelein any case if the multiplication works, then that isn't the problem with what I'm doing
02:26:16LloreanWhat exactly do you mean by direct division?
02:26:25LloreanYou simply asked if it's possible to divide in a plugin...
02:26:32LloreanOr rather, mentioned you'd read it was impossible.
02:26:50LloreanAs it stands, though, it'd be nice to find out where this came from so some clarification can be made
02:27:07allelewell not impossible, but I heard no division function was built into rockbox
02:27:49alleleI mean direct like the calculator just uses /=, in the calculator it uses a recursive call that uses modulus, don't remember it exactly though
02:28:01LloreanWell, that is kinda a division function. And it's built into Rockbox.
02:28:12LloreanOr at least, into a rockbox application.
02:29:20LloreanYou have to remember, these are computers. Somewhere beneath it all, everything is reduced to 1s and 0s and tricks are done to them.
02:29:30LloreanThis is just a case of some of the tricks being more visible than usual.
02:29:58LloreanAre you sure you have no idea where you read that there wasn't one?
02:30:19alleleI think I heard it on this channel
02:30:42alleleits not like I passed the information on
02:31:11LloreanI never suggested you had.
02:31:20LloreanI was asking about who *did* though, so I could maybe fix that.
02:32:10allelenot sure who I heard this from, I could have just misinterpreted what they said as well

04:30:36BHSPitLappysaratoga, fractions imply rationals
04:33:17saratogafloats are rationals :)
04:33:29saratogathough i guess you're right you could use fixed types too if you're clever
04:34:25BHSPitLappyback in CS2 we had to write a rational class and some basic accessors/mutators for it
04:34:39BHSPitLappyGCD, rational addition/subtraction/mult./div.
04:34:53BHSPitLappy(for Java, anyway)
04:35:28BHSPitLappyanyway, rationals imply fixed types
04:35:32BHSPitLappyirrationals imply floats
04:36:55JdGordonfloats are irrationals... you cant exaclty express 1/3 in a float
04:39:29wpyhJdGordon: this is off topic, but your statement "floats are irrationals... you cant exaclty express 1/3 in a float" doesn't make sense
04:40:02JdGordonyes it does...
04:40:19JdGordonwell.. it does to me anyway :p
04:40:46JdGordonif floats were rationals then you could express 1/3 exactly...
04:40:57*JdGordon hopes he isnt getting this whole thing backwards
04:41:58LloreanFloats are basically irrational because you're dependent on binary math
04:42:06LloreanBut we like to pretend like they're always rational most of the time.
04:42:40saratogafloats aren't irrational since you can express all of them as fractions
04:42:55saratogahowever, they do not span the entire set of rationals, so there are rationals which are not floats
04:43:42LloreanI suppose that's true since floats always represent a finite number of digits.

07:58:01PaulJamDoes anyone else find it weird that now when you have "fade on stop/pause" enabled and stop playback from the WPS, that the pause icon is shown during the fade out?
08:00:04LloreanWell there's not exactly a "fadeout" icon, and people wanted visual feedback that fading had started. I don't know if that's why it does it (I don't remember an explicit change to this end) but it does kill that bird.

08:24:30wpyhLlorean: I don't object to that either. But both the old and current behaviours are not so good IMO

08:33:29JdGordonah, well... close enough for now I think
08:33:40*JdGordon does not like how fading is implemented
08:33:45LloreanJdGordon: Until someone submits a patch, right? :)
08:33:54PaulJamLlorean: the iCatcher WPS for example has no "blank" graphic for the space where the playback status icons are. the backdrop has a pink area at that position if i see it correctly.
08:33:55JdGordonsomething like that
08:34:09LloreanPaulJam: Ah, that can be fixed though.
08:34:18JdGordonfading should be done in the DSP, and handled by playback, not the wos
08:34:36LloreanPaulJam: You could even add one more graphic into the conditional, a "clear" one that it alternates for the blink effect. I think that'd be almost essential for it to work well anyway

08:35:30LinusNit's a kludge at best
08:36:01wpyhyes, I think we can use a clear or transparent icon to simulate the blinking
08:36:33PaulJamLlorean: if you add another state to the %mp tag then i would prefer to add a "fading" state, so WPS designer can decide for themselves if they want blinking (via alternating sublines) or a static image.
08:36:35LloreanTransparent is bad. I meant "clear" as in, "that space, cleared"
08:37:27wpyhLlorean: what's the difference? I don't quite get you
08:37:33LloreanPaulJam: Then you'd need at least two more. "Fading to pause" and "Fading to stop", plus alternating sublines don't work within the conditional. You'd technically have a line alternating between two play icons constantly, just so you can alternate for the blink once you're fading.
08:38:01Lloreanwpyh: To clear a space you can also draw the background color over it, or any other "blank" image (in case the background has some sort of placeholder in that area)
08:38:20Lloreanwpyh: The cited problem WAS a backdrop that shouldn't be seen in that area, so you need something to be seen instead of the backdrop
08:38:26JdGordonhas anyone tried putting %Vd in a alternating subline?
08:38:31JdGordonin a conditional
08:38:46wpyhLlorean: oh... ok, I get it now.
08:39:02wpyhWe can use a "hollow" play and pause icons then
08:39:31wpyhfor fade-out, we blink by alternating the "full" and "hollow" play icons
08:39:42wpyhfor fade-in, we blink by alternating the "full" and "hollow" pause icons
08:39:44wpyhhow about that?

08:39:54PaulJamLlorean: would it be a problem to have the subline most of the time alternating with the same content? my WPS already does that for the charging animation and i haven't seen any issues.

08:40:26LloreanAs it is there's already a significant battery life difference on some players between being in the WPS and being in the menu
08:40:58JdGordonthere is?
08:41:19PaulJamJdGordon: i use "%t4%Vda;%?bs<%t4%Vdb|%t0>" in my WPS and it works fine (if that's what you menat).
08:41:46JdGordonPaulJam: ah, yeah, maybe :)
08:42:05wpyhwhich means we just have to provide the mechanism
08:42:21*amiconn didn't see significant differences in battery life caused by the wps, with one notable exception
08:42:41Lloreanamiconn: iirc, buschel did the test?
08:42:53LloreanSo it was on a 5G probably.
08:43:03amiconnIf the wps has peakmeters *and* codec+dsp are almost maxed out, battery life decreases because buffering time increases a lot
08:43:24amiconnHad that on my 2nd Gen with ogg and the old, slow lcd driver
08:45:07amiconnThat, and the fact that the CF mod substantially increases runtime is what makes me think that our disk access is a significant (if not the major) reason of our battery runtime being less than that in the OF on PP502x
08:45:37wpyhamiconn: someone has to work on the DMA hardware for that
08:45:39amiconnPP502x can do ata dma according to the product brief. We need to find out how...

08:56:00PaulJamLlorean: i don't know how this works internally in the WPS code, but maybe the WPS designers could avoid the alternating-between-identical-content problem by using %t0 in the second subline where appropriate.
08:58:04LloreanI'd be awful surprised if %t within a conditional could change the timing of a line.
08:58:24PaulJamLlorean: it can
08:58:48LloreanSeems odd to me.
08:59:14LloreanStill, seems a bit of an inelegant solution. Lots of WPS code duplication.

11:49:45Corsachi there
11:50:48GodEaterCorsac: hi
11:53:17CorsacI have a question about rockbox
11:53:31CorsacI have a (now quite old) rockbox install on my iriver h320
11:53:37Corsacwhich is out of power, kind of
11:53:49CorsacI don't have my AC here, but I do have my usb cable
11:54:10Corsacso I plugged it, it boots, says "battery low", then goes to "Bootloader USB mode"
11:54:26CorsacI wanted to know if there's a way to boot "normal" rockbox
11:54:34Corsacso I can make sure it charges through the usb port
11:54:54GodEaterI'm not quite sure what you're asking
11:55:05GodEaterthe bootloader USB mode allows access to the same file system that "Normal" rockbox does
11:55:53Corsacit appears correctly detected in my linux box
11:56:06GodEaterah sorry, I misread "charges" for "changes"
11:56:13 Quit [CBR]Unspoken|w (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
11:56:19Corsacbut I would like to boot rockbox so I can access the files, play them, set options etc.
11:56:23GodEaterLinusN would know best if charging through USB works with the USB bootloader mode
11:56:35Corsaccurrently I have the "Bootloader USB mode" printed on the screen
11:56:38Corsacand can't do anything
11:56:55GodEaterwill it boot up enough to go into Rockbox without the USB cable plugged in at first ?
11:57:15Corsacno, it doesn't have any power left, it seems
11:57:34GodEaterthen I think you're out of luck probably
11:57:41GodEatersounds like you need to buy a new battery
11:58:52Corsacwhy so?
11:59:00Corsacmy battery is ok
11:59:13Corsacjust I dont *currently* have any power left, and I don't have my AC cable
11:59:34Corsacso I want to charge it through usb port
12:00:06GodEaterah ok
12:00:09LinusNCorsac: do you have USB charging enabled in the OF?
12:00:37LinusNif so, you can hold REC to boot into the OF, and let it charge
12:00:47unpaidbillrockbox rocks me
12:01:22CorsacOF = OpenFirwmare? :)
12:01:39CorsacI guess the charging is enabled
12:01:45Corsacbecause now it boots without the USB cable
12:01:56Corsac(it says it doesn't have power left, but at least it boots)
12:02:40CorsacI'll let in in bootloader usb mode for a while
12:03:23GodEaterOF = Original Firmware
12:04:02Corsacok thanks
12:04:24Corsacurf, I'm stuck in a loop OF/rockbox ¬¬
12:04:47Corsaca non-charging one :/
12:05:37LinusNcongratulations :-)
12:05:57Corsacthanks /o\
12:06:29LinusNbetter leave it then
12:06:54Corsacwhen I plug it, RB starts, says battery low, then shutdowns
12:07:46Corsac(same goes for OF :) )
12:07:51GodEaterI think by "leave it" LinusN means, stop trying to turn it on, and wait till you can charge it via AC, or you risk deep discharging the battery
12:07:55LinusNtouch luck
12:08:17CorsacGodEater: yep, I understood
12:08:21Corsacno music for today
12:08:32LinusNthat is a major flaw in the bootloader
12:09:11LinusNi'm hoping to be able to do some bootloader work at devcon
12:09:28LinusNwith my shiny new TBLCF BDM interface
12:09:41Corsacit'd be nice if the device could charge without any firmware running ;p
12:10:06LinusNlike the h100 could, those were the days...

13:53:52livingdaylightof the players that take rockbox which is the best? i'm looking at an iRiver h10 for example
13:55:03livingdaylightbasically i gotz to have flac so either i buy a Cowan machine, which are very expensive, but apparently the only ones that play flac out of the box, or i get a rockbox compatible machine...
13:55:28B4gderwe only care for rockbox here
13:55:44B4gderand rockbox plays flac fine
13:55:54livingdaylightalso What determines the sound quality is it the make of the machine or rockbox firmware on it that determines sound quality? the former i presume
13:56:06B4gderthe hw
13:56:07pixelmalivingdaylight: depends on your preferences, have you seen the BuyersGuide page in the wiki?

13:58:15livingdaylightso, that brings me back to the first question... Which is the best hardware for rockbox... i'd rather get an iRiver than iPod unless the quality of the latter is superior
13:58:39livingdaylightCowan machines are known for their quality of sound but they are expensive machines
13:58:54B4gderwhat's the best editor? best food? best OS? best music?
13:59:05B4gderbest is highly subjective
13:59:29B4gderimo, sound quality differs very little between modern players
13:59:45B4gderbut then I have tin ears
14:00:40livingdaylightyes, taste is subjective but there are also benchmarks for quality standardization
14:00:58B4gderand they show that sound quality differs very little
14:00:59livingdaylightthere is a clear difference between a 1star and a 5 star hotel
14:01:12livingdaylightB4gder: right, well, that's good news then
14:01:37livingdaylightthats all i'm asking, coz i didn't know that there is no longer much if any difference as you say between players
14:01:37B4gderbut "best player" is a quite a lot more than just sound quality to most people

14:07:03ThibGon the control side, the original firmware is very good
14:07:03livingdaylightin London you can hardly find a Cowon machine anymore...
14:07:16livingdaylightapparently they had a lot of problems with them
14:07:45pixelmathe h10 iriver is not much different from the Ipods (it has the same CPU but then most of the h10 models have a radio etc.). The H100s and H300s are quite different

14:09:03Corsach300 rocks <3
14:09:08Corsacwell, when it as battery
14:10:25ThibGWell, now, I see all the things the original firmware don't have: gapless playback, fade-in/fade-out, replaygain...

14:15:33ThibGabout 250€ when I bought it
14:15:37livingdaylightand what can one pick an iRiver h10 up for these days?
14:16:22B4gderD2 boasts 50 hours run-time, the h10 has perhaps 15
14:16:31B4gderthe D2 is available new, the H10 is not
14:16:36B4gderthe H10 will be MUCH cheaper

14:19:01livingdaylightdon't care for radio. or avi just play flac and record would be nice
14:19:04GodEaterH10 runs the same CPU as the ipod, which means no documentation for it, so all the work done on it has been reverse engineering and educated guesses
14:19:40GodEaterI've never actually used one, but I hear they can be a bit tricksy at times
14:19:51GodEaterwhile the Gigabeat F uses a publically documented CPU

14:53:44PaulJamthe cabbiev2 WPS uses the twp parent directories if no tags for artist or album are available. i think that is meant.

14:55:34PaulJami think it is a common practice for wps designers to fall back to the dirnames if tags are missing.
14:55:53GodEaterbut you cannot say it's a *rockbox* feature
14:56:06GodEaterthere's nothing that enforces that behaviour on WPS designers

16:24:33saratogai ported it but never tested it

16:29:03saratogashould be trivial to fix if ever needed
16:29:31funmanif you can point me to some directions I could have a look - I know jack about decoding
16:30:10saratogathe fp version of the decoder does it find, so I probably just broke something when converting to fixed point
16:30:12funmanexcept what I learned by using this codec into VLC the last week
16:30:39funmanI looked at libavcodec side by side with rockbox
16:30:47saratogaanyway I'd suggest changing as little as possible in the codec, since it will make it harder to merge in improvements later
16:31:50funmandid you consider including your code into ffmpeg upstreame ?
16:32:02saratogayes I put some effort into merging it already
16:32:20saratogabut its difficult to make a dual fixed and fp codec that isn't completely incomprehensible
16:32:57saratogai really like the current ffmpeg wma decoder, its the only readable codec i've ever seen

19:55:23Strife89Darn. Do you happen to know of any tools that can convert them to proper .MOD files?
19:55:52LambdaCalculus37Nope. Did you ask the Great Deity of All Knowing, Google?

19:57:20LambdaCalculus37Don't know what to tell you, then.
19:58:10LambdaCalculus37My only other idea would be to run them through an app that can dump the sound to WAV files, which you can then transcode to something Rockbox can play.

20:08:17Strife89I take it FS #8806 has yet to be comitted?
20:09:00LambdaCalculus37IMHO, FS #8806 should be rewritten as codecs, instead of a viewer plugin.
20:09:02fluxhm, I don't know, but would mikmod support sid?

20:33:16MichaelHahnpauljam: no. i used a,b for other purposes and y,z for aa. the rest was unused. changing y,z to w,x worked directly. so it can not be the number of viewports.
20:33:32BigBambiArmand`: cool - it is often that, but not always - the database isn't perfect :)
20:33:49BigBambiMichaelHahn: Yes it can
20:33:57BigBambiIf there are only 24, that stops with x
20:34:16BigBambiIf you try to use a letter after that (y or z), you are trying to access a viewport that doesn't exist
20:34:34Armand`is there a limit on the number of entries in a playlist?
20:34:38BigBambiIt is 24 = a to x, not 24 at random
20:34:43BigBambiArmand`: yes and no :)
20:34:55MichaelHahnbut the number of viewports has nothing to do with the number of "viewport sets" for the conditional viewports. also the wiki explicitly states that a-z can be used as viewport-set identifier

20:38:05BigBambiMichaelHahn: A good plan :)
20:38:19MichaelHahnnice thing though that the conditional viewports also work in an alternating line, so you can show one viewport set for 10 seconds and another one for 5, for example :-)
20:38:43*gevaerts runs away screaming

20:45:08Strife89It's just that I'm curious about what makes this situation so difficult (i.e., different from other plugins)
20:50:25pixelmathe metronome plugin uses the so-called "pluginlib actions" system and not simple button definitions or at least definitions on its own which means there are connections to - other plugins and other players. You have to make sure to not break other things, you could use exceptions in the plugin itself for certain players but if one has to start with that why not remove this system?

22:47:39youtux_will it start in future?

22:48:04bluebrotherPorts are not planned. They are done by interested people
22:48:19BigBambiBut don't hold your breath - it has encrypted firmware and undocumented hardware
22:48:33youtux_if i can , i would like to help, i have an ipod 6g

22:49:50youtux_actually i don't know how to do some hacks on it
22:50:08youtux_like change firmware
22:50:19BigBambiThere is a huge amount more to it than that
22:50:48BigBambiAnd to be brutally honest, I doubt there is anything you can do without a seriously large amount of studying
22:53:51Bagderand then in the end, studying won't be enough

23:10:44Buschel_Llorean: from lcdframerate wiki you cann furthermore see that a 5G needs about 0.8MHz per fps. WPS is drawn @5 fps, which needs about 4MHz, which consumes ~1,3mA. this current is similar to what you may calculate from the runtime difference and battery capacity −− for a WPS without peakmeters

23:14:20amiconnSince when does it do that?
23:14:43Buschel_i don't know... that's what saw when i played around with it some months ago
23:14:55Buschel_let me check
23:15:08amiconnHmm.... maybe I confused something, and it updates only part of the framebuffer, but transfers everything
23:16:02OzaruHi all. I've installed the current build on a 1G iPod nano using rbutilqt: no errors. But when I try to reboot into RB it gives an ATA -11 error, goes to the debug screen, then lapses into Panic ATA: -11. Reboot into the original firmware and everything works fine. The battery is new and fully charged. Any ideas what might be wrong or where I should look for more troubleshooting hints?

23:20:28Strife89On my uncle's PC, as a limited user (Windoze XP), I then attempted to install Rockbox itself with Rockbox Utility.

23:21:03pixelmascorche|sh: as far as I know downgrading the c200 OF to 1.01.00 is not explained in the manual - and you need it if you want to have a MSC mode setting
23:21:18Buschel_amiconn: even if nothing changes (not even the progress bar)
23:21:39Strife89So I simply transferred my uncle's music to AUDIO and copied /.rockbox to its proper place, and decided to deal with Sansa Patcher on my own PC
23:21:55rocketteemHell, quick question. I just got rockbox on my Sansa E2600, but am having issues figuring out how to access viewer applications. For example, how do I load a ROM for the Rockboy.
