#rockbox log for 2008-10-13

00:00:17amiconnI'll commit this code to trunk and branch. Then I just need to adjust the rombox load address, and test flashing a new rombox
00:00:35amiconnIf this also works, it needs to go into the branch as well, and then I'd like that 3.0.1 ...

00:36:28DogBoyis there a document describing how to do mp3gain that works with rockbox
00:37:14linuxstbDo you mean ReplayGain ?
00:38:06 Join robin0800 [0] (
00:38:31DogBoyif I had something to read about how to get it to work with rockbox I would then know what I meant
00:39:19DogBoycurrently I do not know what I mean other than to want to adjust the volume somehow without re-encoding
00:40:07 Quit shot0fadds ("Leaving")
00:40:42linuxstbmp3gain actually modifies your mp3 files to change the volume (not re-encoding, but it does modify them). ReplayGain will write information to the tags in your file, and then Rockbox will do the volume adjustment during playback.
00:41:08DogBoyyea well
00:41:16DogBoynone of that has worked for me yet
00:41:24DogBoywith rockbox
00:42:36linuxstbThe Rockbox manual should describe how to use ReplayGain. As for adding ReplayGain information to your files, I hear that foobar2k does the job.
00:42:50DogBoyyea I heard that too
00:43:05DogBoybut it didn't make any difference when played back with rockbox
00:44:06linuxstbDid you read the replaygain section of the Rockbox manual?
00:44:11 Quit faemir (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:44:22DogBoywhich is where
00:44:44linuxstbThe manual is linked from the Rockbox home page, and you can search the PDF in your PDF reader...
00:48:06DogBoyenabling it worked
00:48:17DogBoyI guess the foobar thing did work
00:48:27DogBoyit seems odd to have to enable this feature
00:48:51*amiconn curses the dependency mess
00:48:53saratogait could probably be enabled by default since its harmless if off
00:49:05saratogasorry harmless if no RG is available
00:49:11amiconnsaratoga: It drops the volume
00:49:28DogBoyamiconn, say what
00:50:35amiconnAnd afaik it costs a little extra processing power, even if the track has no RG info
00:53:06saratogaamiconn: if the volume changes without a tag, thats probably a bug
00:53:13saratogaor at least something that should be fixed
00:53:17amiconnNo, it's a necessary evil
00:54:01amiconnYou need to make a little room for a final RG > 0
00:54:07saratogato keep unscanned files from suddenly being much louder?
00:54:42amiconnNo, to be able to make RG work at all for files quieter than a standard track
00:55:12saratogawhy is head room needed? replaygain shouldn't be able to get louder then 1 regardless
00:55:18amiconnActually both, probably
00:55:48amiconnIt equalises perceived loudness, not peak level
00:56:20saratogayou're refering to the case of a peak normalized track with a very low volume?
00:56:45*amiconn doesn't remember the *exact* details, as he never uses RG
00:56:55amiconnIt should be in the logs somewhere
00:58:20***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:58:43*amiconn still doesn't understand why people even use RG. It does something rather unwanted for his taste
00:59:07saratogain theory it is required to avoid clipping in lossy audio
00:59:17saratogaalthough in practice this depends on the type of music you listen to
00:59:51DogBoywhat's that amiconn
01:01:31saratogaadditionally, its quite handy for volume equalization as well
01:02:25amiconnsaratoga: Without RG, a track can use the full sample value range. With RG, a track that has a low perceived loudness (and hence a positive RG value) can still utilize the full sample value range
01:02:48amiconnNow, if you don't apply a general precut, it would start clipping
01:03:08saratogathat would be quite rare I think
01:03:17amiconnIt's not. Ask preglow
01:03:30saratogaand since the postive RG value could be very large, you'll always clip on certain samples
01:04:02saratogai assume its not possible to only apply this precut if the tag is present?
01:04:48 Join Waldo000000 [0] (
01:05:13DogBoythanks for helping saratoga
01:05:16DogBoyyou too amiconn
01:05:20amiconnIf you'd do that, untagged tracks would be significantly louder than tagged tracks
01:05:21 Part DogBoy ("Leaving")
01:05:48saratogathat would be a problem
01:06:01 Part Waldo000000
01:06:07amiconnAnd yes, if you don't limit positive RG values to be <= your precut, it could still clip
01:07:20amiconnSo either you risk clipping (although it becomes less likely for a very quiet track to clip, since it will most probably not use full-range), or you limit the positive RG (resulting in very quiet track not fully equalized to the louder ones)

01:33:58amiconnThe important point is that the rombox load address change should not be committed to the trunk until the new flash images are out, which in turn need 3.0.1 (it will be part of them)
01:34:02 Join jhMikeS [50] (n=jethead7@rockbox/developer/jhMikeS)
01:35:11amiconnSo I need to commit that stuff, then 3.0.1 needs to be built, and then I need the (rom|rock)box.ucl files in order to integrate them into the new flash images
01:35:39amiconnThen these images need to be tested, and published together with 3.0.1

09:21:29J-23 - differences between system_settings.c from SVN and patched with 8151 and 8767
09:25:28*J-23 doesn't understand what's wrong with it.
09:26:48linuxstbYou need to delete the first three lines that the patch is showing - the code within the #if #else #endif block should be replacing it. You also need an extra ")" after the last ID2P() in both sections of that #if.

11:04:05linuxstbZagor: I see part of the Rockbox patch problem as simply being that we have quite high standards for code committed to Rockbox, and lots of patch authors either can't meet them, or are happy with their "works for me" hacks. ddalton seems to fall into the latter category.
11:04:40linuxstbThe other problem of course is that we (i.e. existing committers) don't spend enough time reviewing patches and encouraging the authors.

15:48:51Zagoramiconn: here? can you explain to me what the magic numbers in mpeg.c:2487-2500 are?
15:50:14amiconnThat function returns the MAS' internal PLL frequency, in Hz
15:50:49Zagoris that frequently set anywhere or do we "just know" that this is the frequency at this point?
15:51:07Zagorer, s/frequently/frequency of course
15:52:35Zagorit looks rather ... magic
15:52:57Zagoralso it breaks my mpeg -> apps transition :)
15:53:11amiconnIt's documented in the MAS datasheet. If the mpeg file uses 8,12,16,24,32 or 48kHz sample frequency, the internal PLL runs at 24.576MHz, and for sample frequencies of 11,22 and 44kHz it runs at 22,579MHz (provided that we don't lie about the xtal input frequency)
15:53:21B4gderit seems like a function for firmware/target somewhere
15:53:30B4gderor possibly drivers
15:53:41ZagorB4gder: indeed. it's only used by the archos tuner driver, to avoid interference.
15:53:45amiconnThis function is there to avoid radio interference with the samsung tuner (which is *very* susceptible to interference)
15:54:14amiconnThe 4th harmonic of these pll frequencies lies within the FM reception range
15:55:14amiconnSo if the user tunes to one of these 4th harmonics, we slightly shift them away by slight pitch shifting
15:55:44Zagorit would be nice to solve this in mas.c instead of mpeg.c
15:56:24amiconnYeah. mas.c needs a fundamental rewrite anyway
15:56:26B4gderthe first line of the function seems a bit weird though
15:56:37B4gdermpeg_mode seems like an mpeg.c variable
15:57:07B4gderin fact the entire function is odd
15:57:15amiconnYes, and it needs to check that
15:58:19amiconnThe function only works properly if the MAS is in recording mode with source != spdif, but that's all that's needed for its purpose
15:59:16Zagorso it's only used when recording from radio?
16:00:08amiconnThe MAS is always in recording mode when the radio screen is active
16:00:39amiconnActually that's something I want to change, because it wastes battery power when not actually recording, and prevents voicing

Even though playback settings are currently inside "General Settings", playback is the first point there and it "just" needs one additional button press from there...
16:44:04n1spixelma: playback now goes under sound (where general was before) so it is actually one keypress less
16:44:07pixelmathough I admit that I don't change things like shuffle or repeat very often
16:46:06pixelmaand since "Playback Settings" can be entered from the WPS context menu too, it's probably not that important. Ok...

19:35:01stevenmdomonoky, I've done that a few times. they are good batteries, but the life is just terrible anyway
19:35:26stevenmmaybe the unit is partially damaged, or it has something to do with an HD replacement, with the new drive pulling more A
19:35:29domonokymy old trusty archos player still gets about 10h with fresh batterys...

19:36:32domonokythen why not connect directly to the battery contacts ? (with the correct regualtor of course)
19:36:40pixelmaare those such high capacity cells and you leave them a while before using again? Those high capacity ones often suffer from high self discharge
19:36:51*amiconn gets about 15 hours out of both his Player and Recorder
19:37:52stevenmCharged it overnight using 9V, then it died about half an hour later with moderate skipping. This has been going on for a long time. I never remember it having great battery life, even after I bought new cells... it may have been half-busted when it was given to me
19:38:39stevenmdomonoky, that is the idea... but connecting directly to battery terminals is kind of ugly, I thought... that's why I wanted to interanally wire it to the DC port
19:38:54*domonoky rembers something about broken voltage regulators in those old devices, which then draw much power but otherwise work..
19:39:18stevenmdomonoky, and I've got a 5V buck converter from National (back when you could get free samples...)
19:39:39pixelmadomonoky: I only know that about the Ondios but could be missing something there
19:39:41stevenmalthough you can sample similar single-unit regulators with higher efficiency and more output current from TI
19:40:17stevenmdomonoky, Hmmmm... do you know what type of regulator it is? linear/switching? who makes it?
19:40:29domonokystevenm: i would just cut the DC port interally off, und connect it with wires to where the battery is connected...
19:42:04stevenmdomonoky, that's what i have done for now. it's nice that you don't need to actually break anything. the kind folks at Archos seem to have installed a large 0-ohm resistor in series with the DC port that you can easily pull up
19:43:09domonokyyou could even put the voltage converter in the now empty battery slot, and connect 12v from the car to the dc connector :-)
19:43:30stevenmdomonoky, this is true... but unfortunately it doesn't fit, I tried

19:45:38stevenmalthough the reg inside the archos is only $1.68, so maybe I try swapping that also
19:45:41amiconnstevenm: You should only charge either with the original *unregulated* 9V charger, or if you want to use a regulated one, you need a 12V type

19:46:05stevenmamiconn, what do you mean by unregulated 9V charger?
19:46:09domonokywhy not just something like a LM1086 with two small condensators ? should be enough, and they are cheap..
19:46:10amiconnA regulated 9V charger will charge far too slow, resulting in an incomplete charge and very short runtimes
19:47:29amiconnstevenm: The original charger is an unregulated supply. It is specced 9V at full load (500mA), but since it's unregulated, its output voltage is >9V (about 10.5V) when feeding the archos (max. current ~350mA)
19:47:57stevenmamiconn, I tried charging both with 9V and 12V. I've got a nice power supply that provides that... often when it's plugged in and running at 9V, the HD will stall and the whole thing will flip out, so must use 12V
19:48:34stevenmamiconn, aah, I see. I don't actually have the original charger unfortunately. All I got was the unit, minus hard drive
19:48:56amiconnSure, if you batteries are in a low charge state the hdd will stall
19:49:19stevenmso it is also possible that the drive I put in draws more power than the drive that was there originally. though, i did not expect it to be THAT big a difference. THis one is speced for 800mA

19:50:06amiconnIf your batteries are in a low charge state, the archos won't work properly even if the charger is connected. This is expected and normal
19:50:27stevenmamiconn, makes sense
19:50:33domonokybut if stevenm wants to put it into the car, it may be better to remove the need for batterys, then no battery worries more, ever :-)
19:50:50amiconnThe charger isn't capable of feeding the archos on its own, it's just what it says: a charger. This is how the hardware is designed
19:51:35stevenmoh boy. this might explain a lot
19:52:04stevenmthe kid who gave me the recorder- apparently he tried to plug in a charger backwards and the thing started smoking
19:52:16stevenmthis is when i got it
19:52:28stevenmin this case i am impressed it works at all
19:53:30amiconnThen it might be that the charger chip is fried. It can be replaced; there should even be a guide in the wiki somewhere
19:53:36stevenmof course that could mean that there are a ton of parts to check. this charge circuit does not look simple
19:54:06amiconnThere's one single part that's almost always the problem if a recorder doesn't charge anymore
19:55:05stevenmit runs off wall power... kinda.. but as I said, battery life is crummy. is the charger chip that little 4-pin transistor-like thingy on the top of the interface board?
19:55:12stevenmsorry, I forget the package name
19:56:42*domonoky would just put a small circuit (~1€) into the battery slot, and provide power via the battery contacts.. input 12v unregulated to the dc port :-)
19:57:57stevenmdomonoky, what kind of regulator would you recommend that fits into the battery slot?
19:58:40ericabhey everyone; i appreciate the hard work on rockbox; i have a gigabeat S and was just curious what the progress is on its porting ?
19:59:28domonokyjust a small fixed voltage regulator (fitting the battery voltage) and two small capacitors, thats how i do it for most of my electronics projects..
19:59:52stevenmdomonoky, are you talking about a linear reg or switching ?
20:00:07 Quit Tetracomm ("Leaving")
20:00:35domonokyi dont know the correct terms, something like LM1086 ...
20:00:43n1sericab: progress has been slow, there's a more or less finished patch for charging in the tracker but the creator (JhMikeS) doesn't have much rockbox time currently
20:01:15n1sother than that most of the basics work but the battery time is pretty bad
20:01:32ericabahh ok.
20:01:52ericabis the installation process somewhat easy ?
20:01:52stevenmdomonoky, aah yes, I see.. that is linear, similar to 7805 and LM317
20:02:49stevenmdomonoky, I'm kinda afraid that is going to heat up and melt through the case, on account of being linear and dissipating a lot of power. there are regulators that don't just "burn off" the extra power but these are bigger and often require inductors
20:03:08n1sericab: it's not that difficult, but if you want dual boot (which you do since charging doesn't work yet in rockbox) youy need to aquire the Original firmwar which we cannot distribute and patch that...
20:03:56domonokystevenm: yeah, they can get very hot, true... :-)
20:04:06ericabok, thanks for the help n1s
20:04:47stevenmdomonoky, if you are building something battery powered that takes a lot of power, I recommend sampling a PTN78000 or similar. those things are nice.. we used them on a big project, and all for free
20:04:59amiconnstevenm: I can't find it right now, but iirc it was a transistor that's usually broken if recorder v1 doesn't charge anymore
20:06:23stevenmamiconn, that makes sense. Do you mean T3 in the schematic ?
20:06:40amiconnYes, I think that's the one
20:07:22stevenmamiconn, do you think that is what would blow first if the charger polarity was wrong?
20:08:52amiconnA hint:
20:09:11stevenmwow.. that little thing is good to 7A
20:09:17stevenmamiconn, thanks

20:10:29amiconnYou can check whether the box charges at all if you have a multimeter. Put it in series with the charger, and measure current

23:10:13mcuelenaerewhat plugin(s) are you trying?
23:10:48BigBambigevaerts: I'm having a quick play with the MM3 for the hell of it. Running meizu_dfu gets to the "Clearing status..." I release M, but nothing happens and "Clearing status..." is still there. Any ideas what I'm doing stupidly? Do I need to unplug the M3, or leave it plugged?
23:11:44gevaertsBigBambi: The "Clearing status..." is normal. That's because it's designed for the normal firmware upgrade
23:12:04BigBambiOK, so that just stays until I ctrl-c it
23:12:18pixelmamcuelenaere: hmm, I have some changes in pegbox.c and it only affects the touchscreen part by using defines instead of bmpheight_PEGBOX_BLAH so shouldn't change anything with the raster thing but in a d2 sim only the "cross" interface seems to work for me

23:26:08Lloreanball: No, that's why the manual makes no mention of requiring it.
23:26:25stevenmLlorean, because 5V seems to be insufficient to power it. Furthermore, when giving a battery input of 5V, RB claims battery is empty, when, in fact, 5V is 0.2V above the nominal voltage for a charge set
23:26:57Lloreanstevenm: The power cable *only* charges the batteries.
23:26:59stevenmLlorean, the batteries are long busted, and so might be the charging circuit. That's just how I got it... I am now simply trying to power the device by putting 5V on the battery terminals
23:27:04LloreanIt does not poewr the player directly.

23:30:28ballHow can I tell whether my iPod mini is first or second generation?
