01:44:18andrewbeveridgehey, just wondering if saratoga, preglow, or linuxstb are around at the moment?
01:44:44andrewbeveridgedon't worry, i#m not here to nag :P
01:44:48saratogaandrewbeveridge: i'm here
01:45:15andrewbeveridgeis there any way the id3 tags could make a difference to the way the file is treated?
01:45:31saratogaif theres a bug in our id3 parser, sure
01:45:46andrewbeveridgebut surely that wouldn't be WMA-specific?
01:45:46saratogawe don't always handle tags correctly for all formats, though i think mp3 handling is pretty good
01:45:56saratogawell wma files can't have id3 tags
01:45:56andrewbeveridgeah right ok
01:46:25saratogathey use asf tags or whatever they're called
01:47:00andrewbeveridgeok i see... just, the reported bitrate by the faulty files is always in the *thousands* rather than the correct (~70 kbps)
01:48:33saratogareported by what?
01:49:09andrewbeveridgeany music client I have tried reading the files with
01:50:15saratogatheres no video stream ?
01:51:07saratogaif an asf file reports that the bitrate is 1000s of kbps, i'd assume it was audio + video
01:53:12andrewbeveridgewell, based on the 2 MB filesize, correct seeking, and lack of any video output when renamed to .asf and launched in vlc....?
01:53:42saratogahow long is it?
01:54:36andrewbeveridgewell, the example file in the bug I submitted is 3:56 long, and is 1.2 MB
01:55:21 Quit culture (Connection timed out)
01:55:38saratogaah didn't realize it was that file
01:56:04saratogai don't know how the bitrate is calculated, but its probably in one of the ASF headers
01:56:24saratogai don't think the decoder cares about the bitrate though
01:56:29andrewbeveridgewell, see when I am referring to the faulty *files* I am talking about thousands of tracks witht the same properties, same encoder, same bitrate
01:58:51andrewbeveridgenot sure if this helps, but if I re-encode the faulty files using the same encoder, but using CBR WMA rather than VBR WMA they work fine on rockbox
02:03:04andrewbeveridgethats interesting... the faulty (VBR) files report format as "wmav2" whereas the working ones are "wmadmo"

02:26:19andrewbeveridgesaratoga: ok looks like I got mixed up - tracks coded with the windows audio converter program seem to be encoded using the DMO-based WMA encoder, hence are not playable with rockbox, whereas the ones which do not report "wmadmo" as their codec seem playable

02:32:05andrewbeveridgen9xvt: does this file: work on your player?
02:32:19andrewbeveridge( i would greatly appreciate you testing it :) )
02:32:24n9xvthang on,,i'll test
02:33:20saratogaif you want to test files, the sim makes the most sense sicne you can at least see the error messages
02:33:42andrewbeveridgegood point i guess
02:37:15n9xvtplays but skips around,,,
02:37:45n9xvtalso reports it as 64 k bit
02:38:20andrewbeveridgeok so plays badly, like the recording. oh well at least that proves it isn't player/hardware specific. thanks :)
02:38:39andrewbeveridgeit technically is around 64kbps
02:38:42andrewbeveridgeit is VBR

02:41:59rashern9xvt: I doubt that's a font problem
02:42:02andrewbeveridgehave you downloaded the fotns package?
02:42:09rasherUnless it's only the ÿ that doesn't display
02:42:59andrewbeveridgeside-question ; does rockbox support unicode characters in filenames and/or tags?
02:43:01n9xvtyes,,just the y,,and as far as i know i have everything this site has to offer,,
02:43:13safetydanandrewbeveridge: yes
02:43:22rashern9xvt: Which font are you using?
02:44:49n9xvtlet me check,,i'll have to disc. and restart it,,
02:45:48n9xvti just loaded the latest build and fonts on it with the utility,,
02:48:04andrewbeveridgego to theme settings->browse fonts and select unifont, see if the problem persists?
02:48:27n9xvtthis may be an error on mi part? i havn't changed the font but am using the gsx theme?
02:48:44rasherThen you did change the font.

02:50:43rasherWell, it includes its own font it seems. Not much we can do about that. Blame the theme author
02:51:09n9xvtok non-problem with the uni-font,,mi bad?
02:51:12saratogaoes anyone remember what " error: rockboxlogo.h: No such file or directory" means I've forggoten to do
02:52:00andrewbeveridgewell, if the unifont displays all correctly the problem is with whatever font the them you select uses. Each theme has it's own font. Simply change the font to one which you like, and works, after applying the theme.

03:11:11micr0c0smI was just wondering, I haven't tried it yet (copying over the files now)
03:11:19micr0c0smbut when I ls in linux they dont show up
03:11:25micr0c0smunless I ls | grep \.\.\.
03:11:35micr0c0smmaybe once it is on the fat filesystem there wont be any problem
03:11:52rasherThat's because files beginning with a . are treated as hidden
03:12:18rasherRockbox does the same, but I don't know if it does the same for files starting with multiple dots
03:12:38micr0c0smand I thought .. means go up a directory too
03:12:46micr0c0smbut we will see in a few minutes if there is an issue or not

03:19:18***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
03:19:56n9xvtHow can they be the same but have different sizes?
03:20:02andrewbeveridgeyeah, thats what i'm trying to figure out - I mean, when I have two files sooooo similar, and one fails, really all that we need to do is figure out what is different between them, then I'm sure you will be able to solve the problem
03:20:15andrewbeveridgeum, they obviously aren't exactly the same
03:20:19saratogayou're not going to be able to figure that out
03:20:34andrewbeveridgesaratoga: why not?
03:20:45saratogabecause you don't know how the codec works
03:20:54andrewbeveridgeyeah, good point.
03:21:09n9xvtif one could get"inside" and look at the codes,,
03:21:20saratogathe difference isn't something you can find other then by looking at the code and running the files through it a lot
03:22:49andrewbeveridgeits all kinda over my head. I want to learn but I think I would have to do a sound engineering course before I even had a clue about audio compression, codecs and such. I'm limited to programming database-driven websites lol
03:23:28saratogacomputer engineering
03:23:37saratogacodecs actually have nothing to do with sound
03:24:01Unhelpfulso, the audio out in sbagen.c is mostly stuff i figured out from one mail list message, and looking at mpegplayer. i seem to be missing something, though. does anybody know why it's silent unless i've adjusted the volume or played a track? patch is in
03:24:41andrewbeveridgesaratoga: really? surely the varied methods/qualities of compression must require some knowledge of the waveforms etc?
03:25:10 Quit tvelocity (Remote closed the connection)
03:25:16n9xvtis'nt the codec jut an "intepeter" between player and hardware?
03:26:56rasherandrewbeveridge: for designing a codec, yes. Writing the code for an already existing codec, not so much
03:27:02saratogaandrewbeveridge: thats basically what computer/electrical engineering is
03:27:39Unhelpfulandrewbeveridge: really, writing a decoder is a matter of following a specification. writing a good encoder for a format from scratch, or designing a new format, that's harder
03:27:43saratogan9xvt: thats one meaning yes, but we're refering to decoders here that convert compressed audio into pcm
03:28:54micr0c0smanyone here upgrade thier 5g 60gb hard drive?
03:31:24andrewbeveridgesaratoga: ah, ok - see, I was kinda getting confused with software engineering.
03:31:50andrewbeveridgeUnhelpful: yeah, I guess, except WMA doesn't have any spec available

03:36:40saratogain case anyone was wondering, one way to create the rockboxlogo.h error is to not include a keymap file for your target
03:37:17Unhelpfulandrewbeveridge: i'm sure MS has one somewhere, but yeah, we have to figure it out. pretty much :/
03:37:40micr0c0smwow, i actually like the ipod mini themes better than the ones for my 5g :(
03:38:16Freddo_FrogI was looking to buy a MP3 Player, and i was wondering what the best choice is if i want to solely use rockbox
03:38:50saratogaFreddo_Frog: theres a buyers guide in the wiki
03:39:01Freddo_Frogi know but that does not include near complete ports
03:39:08Freddo_Frogall of those players are old
03:39:42Llorean"Near Complete" is meaningless.
03:39:49scorcheold != bad
03:39:51andrewbeveridgeFreddo_Frog: I, personally would say choose an iPod 5G
03:40:06Freddo_Frogandrew i have looked into those and they are all about 400
03:40:07LloreanUntil a port is complete, it can seem nearly done and have months and months and months to go, or it can seem like it's far from done, and a chance discovery allows it to be working in a few weeks
03:40:11scorcheandrewbeveridge: i wouldnt...
03:40:24Lloreanandrewbeveridge: Frankly, the 5G/5.5G are the worst performing Rockbox target.
03:40:39Freddo_Frogi was going to go with the cowon X5L
03:40:53Unhelpfuli know people who seem pretty happy w/ gigabeat F
03:41:10saratogapretty much the only viable upcoming port at this point is the Gigabeat S
03:41:17Freddo_Frogi was thinking about that
03:41:20Freddo_Frogthe gigabeat S
03:41:22LloreanThe Gigabeat S is the only one likely to work "well" with rockbox any time soon.
03:41:23andrewbeveridgeah ok, I guess it depends what you want to use it for primarily though
03:41:27saratogathe rest are too far away to be worth looking at, and even the S needs work
03:41:39Unhelpfuli'm happy w/ my S, *but* it only charges in OF right now, and you need a paper clip or such to get back to rockbox from OF
03:41:43LloreanThe Cowon D5 has some potential, but some quirks that really stand in the way (managing its internal flash)
03:41:51LloreanIt'll most likely end up requiring a memory card for regular use.
03:41:54Freddo_FrogD2 you mean?
03:42:00andrewbeveridgeFreddo_Frog: what format?
03:42:00LloreanYeah, D2
03:42:04LloreanDamn numpad.
03:42:11Freddo_FrogLlorean: i currently own one of those and i haxedve it rockbo
03:42:45Freddo_Frogandrewbeveridge: ogg and mp3

03:45:11n9xvtpretty happy that is,,
03:45:16 Quit Thundercloud_ (Remote closed the connection)
03:45:19Freddo_Frogi was looking for either HDD based or large Flash like 16 - 32 GB that is
03:46:26andrewbeveridgeLlorean: What is so bad about the iPod 5G then? (I know nothing)
03:46:46Lloreanandrewbeveridge: Slow processor + Large screen.
03:47:03LloreanBasically UI performance and drawing performance are generally poor because of the giant screen
03:47:15Lloreanand although pretty much all the iPods use the same processor, the others have smaller screens so show better UI performance
03:47:27micr0c0smAs an end-user, I have had no issues with rockbox in the past two years with my 60g 5g
03:47:28LloreanBecause the WPS must be updated, codec performance may be poorer too.
03:47:39LloreanWhile Playing Screen
03:47:43micr0c0smbut a smaller screen would be better for battery life, probably
03:47:44Freddo_Frogahhh i see
03:48:10Lloreanmicr0c0sm: Well, generally speaking, the batteries in smaller screen players are also smaller
03:48:11Freddo_Frogdoes it look like the Toshiba Gigabeat S will be cmopleted?
03:48:24micr0c0smI should run that battery test script
03:48:27LloreanFreddo_Frog: I'd give it >80% chance.
03:48:45Freddo_Frogi would not get it until october
03:48:46LloreanIt's quite usable as is, and the main thing missing is charging.
03:48:59andrewbeveridgeLlorean: ok what about the nano then? (ignoring massive difference in storage capacity due to flash memory)
03:49:11Lloreanandrewbeveridge: Nano is *much* better over all
03:49:16Unhelpfuljhmikes said he had that working, aside from some minor issues
03:49:20andrewbeveridgeah ok
03:49:27UnhelpfulS charging, that is
03:49:37LloreanUnhelpful: Yes, but who knows when he'll have time to work those out. :)
03:49:41Freddo_Frogi dont get how it could not charge. i thought charging was HDD not softwarew
03:49:49Freddo_Froghardware that is
03:50:12Unhelpfulthe S charger apparently needs to be told to charge. even from the AC adaptor. :/
03:50:22Freddo_Frogso you cant charge it when it is off?
03:51:09LloreanYou can't charge most players while off.
03:51:47Freddo_Frogwould it be able to be mounted under linux as removable storage?
03:52:18saratogais there some way to remove a file from version control without deleting it?
03:52:41Freddo_Frogis there a chance that there will be a rockbox hardware player?
03:52:52Lloreansaratoga: Why?
03:52:59LloreanFreddo_Frog: Not realistically, no.
03:53:07Freddo_Frogit is a good project i think
03:53:24LloreanApparently not good enough, since too few people are contributing.
03:53:27scorcheFreddo_Frog: not unless someone with a clue comes forward and does it
03:53:30andrewbeveridgeLlorean: the nano charging is definitely hardware based - even when the flash drive was dd if=/dev/zeroed it charged fine from the USB cable and Mains charger
03:53:31saratogabecause SVN is terrible and i need to remove and readd some files to it so that it will recognize them
03:53:51Freddo_Frogwell what if a hardware vendor wanted to use it as the original firmware on there hardware?
03:54:18n9xvtthat wuld be awesome!
03:54:23Freddo_Frogi know
03:54:54saratogathe rockbox player project suffers from being a terrible idea
03:55:02Freddo_Frogsaratoga: what do you mean?
03:55:08scorcheandrewbeveridge: and disk mode still worked, etc...the ipods have certain functions in flash that do not depend on the state of the hard drive
03:55:25scorchesaratoga: it isnt too bad...just depends on what is done with it
03:55:47scorcheFreddo_Frog: while that might be "awesome" i dont see the point in saying "what-if..."
03:56:08Unhelpfuli wouldn't count on that what-if happening soon
03:56:21Lloreanandrewbeveridge: What is that supposed to prove?
03:56:25scorcheif it does, it does...if it doesnt, then i doesnt...
03:56:28andrewbeveridgescorche: ah, good point... so are you saying the charging was still presumably handled by the read only flash firmware?
03:56:56saratogahow do i blow away a corrupt SVN entry and readd it
03:57:03saratogaremove seems to fail
03:57:07Freddo_Frogthey could offer a rockbox version and a OF version
03:57:16andrewbeveridgeLlorean: that charging has nothing to do with firmware on the nano.. but clearly scorche just out-knowledged me :)
03:57:19scorcheandrewbeveridge: what is the point of this discussion?...the gigabeat S is a totally separate device
03:57:39scorcheFreddo_Frog: huh?
03:57:47Freddo_Froglike dell offers windows and linux
03:57:53Lloreanandrewbeveridge: Well, "hardware controlled" invariably means "software controlled" at some point, because eventually there's logic to protect from overcharging.
03:58:36saratogai don't think pure hardware lipoly chargers actually exist
03:59:08scorcheit is a bit complicated...
03:59:15andrewbeveridgescorche: um not sure - i went off topic, i guess.
03:59:40Freddo_Frogmaybe if the vendor got enough requests they could use rockbox as the original firmware
04:00:16scorcheFreddo_Frog: let me know how that turns out...i still dont see the point in discussing whatever you are trying to discuss...
04:00:47andrewbeveridgeFreddo_Frog: not gonna happen. 1) Rockbox hasn't got nearly enough publicity. 2) Rockbox will never be stable.
04:01:33*scorche sighs
04:01:38saratoga2 is probably not a good thing to say in this channel
04:01:59Freddo_Frogi dont see how it is not stable
04:02:15scorcheandrewbeveridge: it certainly is stable enough for me...if you are seeing bugs that i am not, i hope they are at least in flyspray...
04:02:27n9xvtme either,,
04:02:38UnhelpfulFreddo_Frog: i believe saratoga might mean in terms of the code being a moving target
04:02:58scorcheeither way, what use would discussing this be?
04:02:58Freddo_Frogregular updates
04:03:04Freddo_Frogregular updates
04:03:16Unhelpfulmany commercial developers like their APIs frozen, or at least frosty
04:03:42scorcheif a manufacturer decides to use rockbox, then they do, but i dont see a point in discussing this hypothetical
04:03:58Freddo_Frogi am sure that if it was put to the vendors some1 would snatit upch
04:04:14andrewbeveridgeNo, I'm not seeing bugs - but for any supposed "vendor" to take software on, it would have to be widely adopted and tested. Rockbox is perfect in my opinion but I doubt it would ever be classed as "stable" with new bugs being found regularly.
04:04:19scorcheif you are so sure, then doo it..
04:04:27Freddo_Frogwhat email them?
04:04:37scorchei dont know and dont really care...
04:04:37andrewbeveridgego ahead
04:04:41Freddo_Frogi will
04:05:07andrewbeveridgescorche: bad mood? I'm sorry if I have offended in any way o.O
04:05:24Lloreanandrewbeveridge: There's just a bad habit of people not bothering to report bugs.
04:05:31LloreanThey always seem to assume that if they see them, we all see them.
04:07:12andrewbeveridgeLlorean: ah, ok. Just to clarify - by my less-than tactful statement "2)", I wasn't implying I had had any problems, I was meaning when bugs *are* being reported, it could never be classed as "Stable".
04:07:42Lloreanandrewbeveridge: No offense intended, but that's silly. I know commercial software that's much buggier than Rockbox. Several OF's included.
04:08:07LloreanI'd imagine if a vendor were interested in it, they'd just pick one of our numbered releases, where bugs are documented already, and adjust it to their needs.
04:08:13LloreanBut nobody seems interested in this, so it's irrelevant.
04:08:36scorchethere isnt much point in discussing this as a hypothetical

06:03:18Llorean"incompatible version" means your simulator binary wasn't compiled at the same time as the plugin.

15:20:27LambdaCalculus37Not even with a dd command?

15:21:05MarcGuayAh, that was what I was going to do, disk image it. Not a linux dude but I think that's what dd is all about?
15:21:41MarcGuayI think it's probably the firmware because the NAND ones seem to have a hidden partition to hide it in while these ones don't...

15:22:47MarcGuayAccording to linuxstb's LogikDAX page the nand versions have a hidden partition.
15:23:07linuxstbIt's not a hidden partition as such, just an area of the disk that isn't exposed via USB

16:42:07LloreanIs the voice codec always loaded, or is it separate and only loaded when voice is enabled, or when voice needs to be played? Specifically, would it in theory be possible to support multiple voice formats without *too much* extra work?
16:42:46 Quit Toki_ (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
16:44:33linuxstbLlorean: The voice codec used to be loaded, but is now linked as part of the core.
16:45:38Lloreanlinuxstb: Some time ago there was talk about plugins possibly being under different licenses from the core, especially if they were compiled and distributed separately (plugins from a GPLv3 build of Rockbox being available for download, but binary compatible with a v2 or later build)
16:46:05MarcGuayUnhelpful: I might be barking up the wrong tree though. Perhaps it's possible, and even normal, for a 2GB disk to have a default amount of 10MB shown as "used" even though the exposed files don't reflect it?
16:46:08LloreanAnd I was thinking "well, if it IS true, it could also work for codecs" then "if it could work for codecs, it might work for the voice codec, I wonder how that's set up" specifically leading toward espeak.
16:46:29LloreanIt might be another angle to approach the espeak v3 problem from.
16:46:47pixelmaI remember some devs saying "no codec swapping for voice anymore" which seem to have been troublesome before
16:46:48LloreanIf it were possible to just normally include the speex, but allow a separate download to replace it with an actual TTS codec.
16:47:10LloreanAh well.
16:47:17pixelmawhen speex was introduced
16:47:28linuxstbpixelma: Yes, the code was greatly simplified (and made more reliable) by linking speex into the core

23:22:26peturI guess I'll leave the ones used elsewhere in the lang file and create a new one for the recording screen. When the eq screen is redone, they can use the new string and depricate the sysfont one

23:41:48rasherSome obvious things: Change an ID in all languages, deprecate a string in all languages, change an English string in english.lang and change <source> accordingly in other languages (for minor changes that don't require changes in translations), change desc in all languages (for minor changes that don't require attention by translators)
23:42:24preglowah, yeah, global changes would be nice
23:42:33rasherSort a language in English.lang order (some people seem to prefer that)
23:42:42preglowoh yes
23:42:58preglowbut some kind of interface for doing the actual translation work itself would also be good, including displaying all the strings in a file
23:43:04preglowperhaps that's web app land?

23:43:19preglowlike i said, i think the actual layout of lang files is way to cluttery for manual editing
23:43:53rasherI think a web app would be better - I don't think people would bother downloading a program to translate
23:44:10preglowyeah, i agree
23:44:48rasherI'm not sure I'm up to the task of writing a usable web app of that size
23:45:28preglownah, it'd be a fair deal of work
23:45:59preglowi used to enjoy writing stuff like that four years or so ago, but alas, no longer

23:47:15peturwow, lots of sysfont strings are actually duplicates of existing strings
23:47:19*preglow tries to sweat less
23:47:23preglowpetur: tons
23:47:34preglownoticed that when syncing last
23:51:28peturpreglow: 10
23:52:22peturand counting...
23:53:30rasherAh. I was about to suggest renaming norsk to norsk-bokmål, but then there's the filename problem
