#rockbox log for 2009-04-05

00:00:18amiconnActually that was a bit of simplification; it might also want current fg & bg colour, but that's also part of the viewport
00:02:29Unhelpfulok, so all we'd be adding, per-viewport, is a visibility flag? the struct doesn't happen to have a bitfield flags member already, does it? it might make sense to add the visibility flag that way...
00:03:26amiconnNo, not yet
00:03:36amiconnlcd.h, line 29ff
00:05:15Unhelpfulmaybe a byte worth of flags, low bit is visibility, rest reserved for future use? then again, probably might as well make it 32 bits... it'd get padded to align things anyway, wouldn't it?

00:12:33yashHi, I'm looking for Michael Giacomelli.
00:12:50saratogayash: I am he
00:13:09saratogayou're here about the WMA Pro codec?
00:13:12yashhi, saratoga.
00:13:28yashyep, that's right.
00:14:01saratogaI was curious about your background
00:14:06saratogahave you done any DSP?
00:15:01yashyep, I've worked in TI C64x DSP's.
00:15:04saratogaI saw that you worked for TI before
00:15:22saratogasorry I mean signal processing math, not programming signal processors
00:15:29domonokybluebrother: nice :-)
00:15:43saratogai mean are you familar with the DCT, etc
00:16:04saratogai know a lot of people in computer science in the US do not necessarily do much with that kind of math
00:16:05yashoh ok, I've not done DCT.
00:16:17saratogahave you done much much fourier related stuff?
00:16:44yashDCT, FT are things I've read but not worked on.
00:17:17saratogacan you do one by hand on paper?
00:17:44bluebrotherthe sansa required quite a bit of additional work :(
00:18:07bluebrotherbut it seems to work nicely, at least for me. Let's see how it will work on linux later
00:18:13saratogai already added teh transform stuff WMA Pro needs to rockbox, so you won't actually have to implement it, but understanding what it is doing is probably helpful for debugging
00:18:48yashit's been some time since I worked on DCT, FT. I can quickly learn but right now cannot do.
00:19:28yashUnderstanding the transform should not be a problem for me.
00:19:39saratogaso you've done the math courses in university?
00:19:46domonokybluebrother: and this works without changing the patchers itself ?
00:19:52saratogaI guess you were CE or CS for undergrad?
00:19:52bluebrotherdomonoky: yes
00:20:00yashyep, CS.
00:20:17yashand we had the course on DCT, FT and Laplace transforms.
00:20:25saratogaah alright that should be fine then
00:20:36saratogathe differences between the various fourier transforms are not great
00:21:05bluebrotherthere's one thing I'd like to change in ipodpatcher: the result code for read_partinfo. The current error ("Can't read partition table") isn't correct in all cases and might be quite misleading −− especially as it occurs when the partition table isn't an Ipod
00:21:09yashoh ok. my grades were "S" or 10/10 for 4 math courses. just to let you know.
00:21:21bluebrotherbut that's a different thing (and nothing that's dangerous ;-)
00:21:30yashin my Masters, i have not taken up Math courses so far.
00:21:32saratogawere you at UMN for undergrad too? I interviewed there for graduate school a few years ago
00:22:08yashoh, but my undergrad was in India. CEG as it's famously known.
00:22:15yashCollege of Engineering, Guindy.
00:22:44saratogaah ok
00:23:24 Quit bluebrother ("zzz")
00:23:32yashand how long have you been working in Rockbox if I may know?
00:23:41yashyour background etc.
00:24:04saratogaI started about 2 years ago doing the summer of code to write the WMA std decoder
00:24:25saratogawell adapt it for fixed point and rockbox, it was obviously already written
00:24:56***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:25:08yashoh, and you are working for some company?
00:25:19yashor still in academics?
00:25:24saratogaI am a phd student still
00:25:35yashok, univ?
00:25:44saratogaDuke in NC
00:25:57yashok, thanx.
00:27:57saratogawhy did you take an interest in teh WMA Pro project?
00:29:43yashI have some background working in codecs, and I wanted to work in Rockbox, Open source. I knew this would be feasible for me to complete. Hence the decision.
00:30:10saratogawhat did you do with codecs?
00:30:50yashBasically, TI has C64 DSP for which it supplies the codecs.
00:31:36 Join planetbeing [0] (
00:31:45yashand to run a codec on a TI platform called Davinci, without being concerned about whether its ARM or DSP, and setting up the DSP etc,
00:32:00yashwe had a framework called Codec Engine.
00:32:23saratogaso you were mostly working on the API of their audio software?
00:32:31yashI was involved extensively working on Codec Engine, understanding what a codec expects, returns etc.
00:33:33saratogathe c64 is an floating or fixed point dsp?
00:33:36yashI ported an ARM MP3 codec to run on Davinci.
00:34:02yashIt was compiled on Code Composer studio and i modified it to compile with gcc and get it working.
00:35:17yashits floating point.

00:39:03yashbut right now today being an assignment submission, i need to rush.

If we skip forward, and the remaining time (RT) is greater than the step then we just jump forward. If the RT is less than the step then it depends on whether "prevent skipping" is active. So far correct?
16:36:18bookshareCould fs#10083 please be investigated?

16:56:25bluebrotherkugel: every parameter that gets passed needs to get put on the stack before calling the function. Thus, if a function has a parameter that is always the same value it's questionable if it should be kept
16:56:57mcuelenaerebluebrother: can't parameters get passed trough registers?
16:58:02kugelmcuelenaere: yes, but that's (mostly) effectively the same, since (mostly) the register needs to be saved on the stack before overwriting them
16:58:06bluebrotherhmm, not sure about that. Still, you need to put the value somewhere (unless the compiler is able of optimizing it away)
16:58:36bluebrotherand I doubt that most compilers can optimize such a call
16:59:42kugelwriting a parameter into a register takes 1 or 2 clocks

19:30:03kugelI didn't have any problems with the actual events yet

19:33:51kugelthen please just tell me why it's wrong
19:34:03JdGordonit happens way too late during the first time the wps is shown
19:34:54JdGordonalso, I need to check, but i can imagine things going wierd when the track changes and you are in the pitch screen (for example)
19:35:07kugelwell, I don't think so. debugf showed that the event is received when initially displaying the wps too
19:35:27JdGordoneither way, I think leaving it registered all the time is fine for the first commit.. it can be fixed later
19:35:44kugelJdGordon: exactly that's why it must be in the restore part too. 13b is indeed broken in that regard
19:36:14JdGordon13a is the one i intend on commiting
19:36:41JdGordonwith the fix for 10085 done propelry
19:36:51kugeldid you check if it has the skip length issue?

20:15:13cornwallHi, new here......
20:15:37bluebrotherhappens at times :)
20:15:53cornwallI have huge problems with my music database
20:16:11cornwallI've been trying to sort this out for quite a while now without success
20:16:42cornwallI'm using Songbird to sync, and most of my library has been imported by iTunes, but it's all out of order
20:17:11cornwallI have meticulously glazed over the out-of-order albums, but the track order is right, there are no differences in other fields, etc.
20:18:19cornwallAlso, I have things like a ten-disc set of music, and they are organized as ten separate discs of the same album, each new disc starting at track 1 of *, but Rockbox displays ALL the track 1s together, 2s, etc
20:18:40cornwallany pointers? I can't for the life of me figure this out or find a forum dealing with this
20:20:44bluebrotherI'm not really sure if I got your issue. The music is tagged correctly?

20:27:40LloreanAre you sure you're set to sort by tracknumber then?
20:27:47PaulJam_JdGordon: the issue that the metaadata of the next track is shown is still there with 13b. to reproduce select a file from the filebrowser and as soon as the next track info is shown on the wps skip forward an then the second track plays, but the metadata of the third track is shown. so it seems to happen when you skip to the next track while it is currently being buffered.
20:27:56cornwallhow can I set it? I cannot find any options to do that in the player
20:28:16Lloreancornwall: If you're using database, it's part of the tagnavi.config. If you're in the "Files" list, that's just filenames.
20:28:57cornwallOh, but I'm browsing through a tag-reading program on my computer
20:29:08Lloreancornwall: I thought your problem was in Rockbox.
20:29:23cornwallit is....
20:30:07LloreanIf you're talking about it showing in the wrong order in a computer application, it's not a Rockbox issue

20:30:24cornwallno, no, I'm saying it does do that in the Rockbox
20:30:41LloreanThen what does the tag reading program on your computer have to do with my statements regarding it in Rockbox?
20:30:46cornwallI was just glancing over the actual files themselves through the computer
20:30:54LloreanThis statement refers to in-Rockbox - "cornwall: If you're using database, it's part of the tagnavi.config. If you're in the "Files" list, that's just filenames."
20:32:30cornwallokay, so, then, can I change the settings of the database?
20:32:39cornwallI couldn't find any configurations anywhere
20:33:28LloreanYou need to edit the tagnavi.config if a list isn't sorting by the tags you want it to.
20:34:08cornwallreally? O.o
20:34:14cornwallthrough my comp, or can I do it via ipod?

20:40:27cornwallBut they are, that's the problem....
20:40:39LloreanYou already said one of them at least shows with a different name in the list
20:40:39cornwallEven before I rip the CD, I make sure that they are all perfect
20:40:42LloreanThat means it has a different tag
20:41:03cornwallAgain, I don't know why. The tags read fine
20:41:16cornwallat least in every other program I have used to read it
20:41:26cornwallApple included
20:41:34LloreanDid you check whether that one file has any extra tags you missed removing?

20:47:50soapI claim that even in the worst case it is a double standard. I also claim that a double-standard is not unfair.

20:55:20LloreanThe problem isn't "we don't like off-topic stuff in here"
20:55:27LloreanThe problem is "people talk too much on-topic in -community"
20:55:46LloreanSince the problem didn't really exist before -community existed, why is the solution to redraw the lines that worked before -community?

20:55:55soapThe rules did not work.
20:56:02soapThat is the crux of my argument.

20:57:09BigBambiLlorean: For a good long time maybe, but it wasn't always like that
20:57:15Lloreansoap: You're asking for a judgment call on reasonableness. That means "if it doesn't irritate someone, it's fine"
20:57:41LloreanI posit that if it's "reasonable" then it's already on-topic.

21:08:38LloreanIf someone's hypothesizing about a truly ridiculous potential plugin, it's still a potential plugin.

21:10:18soapOn-topic can rarely be judged without the lens of history.
21:11:00fmlkugel: just by studying the code (I haven't tried yet): I think that hopping back is flawed. If you have a positive length, you are near the end of the track, and hop back, you'd jump to the start of the track instead of just a step back.
21:11:02GrandMaster-Di conect it with the ums-trick (or what it is called) and just copy it to the iriver
21:11:04Lloreansoap: I dunno, the first memory I have of him had me think he at least had a decent grounding to start from.
21:11:18GrandMaster-Ddo i have to put the files in a certain location?
21:11:24BigBambiGrandMaster-D: Into what directory?
21:11:25Lloreansoap: And "on topic" doesn't mean "deciding if we think they're too stupid to accomplish what they say they will" just "what they say affects or is affected by Rockbox"
21:11:31soapMy first memory, no offense to him, was "here we go again."
21:11:36BigBambiGrandMaster-D: Anywhere but the .rockbox directory
21:11:46GrandMaster-Djust E:\Music
21:11:57GrandMaster-DE: is the iriver
21:11:58Lloreansoap: I think that may be the problem then. You see the line as "if we think they're pie-in-the-sky, even if it's Rockbox, we tell them to get out of here"
21:12:02LloreanI don't think I've ever done that.
21:12:07LloreanSorry, the *current* line
21:12:20LloreanOr if I have, I shouldn't have done it.
21:12:24BigBambiGrandMaster-D: What is the "Show files" setting in Rockbox set to?
21:12:28soapNo - I see the current line as a line.
21:12:35kugelfml: yea, I noticed that too
21:12:43Lloreansoap: You need some sort of guideline upon which to make the judgment calls.
21:12:55LloreanEven if it's "reasonably on topic" you need to define what "on topic" means
21:13:22soapDo we not trust GodEater to know when to ask someone to leave? Do we not trust JdGordon to speak his mind if someone is off-topic? I would rather have people making judgement calls than lines.
21:13:47Lloreansoap: The line is still "on-topic", then, it's just judgment calls about whether someone crossed it.
21:13:51*BigBambi doesn't trust GodEater - he has met him :P

21:14:20soapok, a *sober* GodEater.
21:14:20Llorean"is related to Rockbox" is a pretty vague guidelines
21:14:26LloreanAnd that's what the line is *currently*
21:14:29*GodEater counts the money he's stolen from BigBambi's wallet
21:14:38LloreanOr if you want it vaguer, please tell me what it should be replaced with?
21:14:38soapthen there is no need to add "anything goes for devs."
21:14:44fmlkugel: that complicated condition (gwps.c:150) needs "direction==1&&" before "step >= remaining"
21:15:11*GodEater is disappointed to discover it comes to "nothing at all" :(

21:20:41 Join TBOL3 [0] (
21:20:57LloreanI see the line as "where we stop", a sort of defense to keep enforcement from being too harsh

21:21:13GrandMaster-Dyes I guess I found it
21:21:18GrandMaster-Dall the data is back again in the filebrowser
21:21:20LloreanThat's why I'm asking you where the new one should be - so that people have a place to say "no, this is on-topic"

21:22:00soapI agree with how you see it - I just don't think your fears are grounded.
21:22:26Lloreansoap: I've already had a few instances where I've asked someone "why are you telling them that's off-topic?"
21:23:24soapYes, there will always be unreasonable behavior. I don't know how any rule can solve that... go on...
21:24:14LloreanUnreasonable, yes.
21:24:39LloreanBut I'm more concerned about cases where dev/user/whatever just doesn't know where the line is.
21:24:49GrandMaster-Dnow I'll understand that root-thing, it was a playlist containing all songs and due to the setting it showed only playlists... -_- now i feel dumb; cu guys
21:24:59LloreanThat's what one of these cases was, someone who thought on-topic was much stricter than it was, and has behaved differently after clarification
21:25:08GodEaterunless the rules become an enormous book, I don't see how you can avoid that anyway
21:25:13LloreanIf the rules are clear about what is "on topic" someone can at least say "Well, from the guidelines I thought this was okay here" and maybe prompt the complainer to re-examine things
21:25:42soapthen perhaps a little pow-wow is needed on the -dev mailing list. Perhaps an evaluation of expectations, and consequences should be discussed.
21:25:43LloreanGodEater: Well, the proposition is to drop having a definition for "on-topic" and just let anyone (presumably with the authority to do so) say "I think that's off-topic" at will, iiuc.
21:25:49GrandMaster-Doh, one last question: is it possible to keep certain songs out of the database - so they appear only in the filebrowser?
21:26:00GodEaterLlorean, seems perfectly reasonable to me
21:26:11BigBambiGrandMaster-D: Certain folders, yes
21:26:15GodEaterthe people with the authority to do so in this channel is a damn short list unless somethings changed recently
21:26:17LloreanGodEater: I think it'd be better to at least *have* a channel topic.
21:26:38BigBambiGrandMaster-D: Put an empty file called database.ignore in the directory you want ignored
21:26:44GrandMaster-Dcool, can you tell me how?
21:26:46LloreanGodEater: The people with authority to do so to you meaning "people who can actually kick" or "all devs"?
21:26:55BigBambiGodEater: Nope, still damn short
21:27:02GodEaterpeople who can actually kick
21:27:07Lloreansoap: Speaking of mailing lists, any further thoughts on the forum thing? that thread kinda died out.
21:27:08GrandMaster-Dwithout any datatype ending?
21:27:10soapIMHO, the primary goal should be to make #rockbox a place for dev talk. Support is second. Whatever keeps the devs happy and facilitates the usefulness of the channel should be done. If on-topic in -community is harmful it should be addressed. If WebGuests are harmful than they should be addressed. etc.
21:27:38BigBambiLlorean: I like the proposal (r.e. forums)
21:27:43 Part alexmhso
21:27:55LloreanBigBambi: Which one, the original or the one I amended with a few changes?
21:28:12BigBambiI think we should go ahead (with your idea of having a subforum for manual install)
21:28:47GrandMaster-Ddoes it also work the other way? like not shown in filebrowser? 'hiding files' ?
21:29:34GodEaterGrandMaster-D, the mechanism is not the same, but you can certainly hide files from the filebrowser (unless you have "Show files" set to All)
21:29:59Lloreansoap: Maybe something simply like "#Rockbox is the channel for Rockbox development and support discussion. Please try to stay on-topic. If you wish to hold off-topic discussions you may be directed to #Rockbox-community" No explicit lines, plenty of elbow room?
21:30:14soapI'm fine with that.

21:31:33kugelfml: I appreciate that
21:31:40GodEaterwhoah, we're suggesting kick people for accidentally straying on topic in -community ?
21:31:51LloreanGodEater: I don't know how serious that was.
21:31:57soapjust to make a tongue-in-cheek point, GodEater.
21:32:00GodEaterah ok
21:32:11GodEaterI've always thought we self-police that quite well enough
21:32:13BigBambiNot very I hope
21:32:25LloreanThe problem that prompted all this is that -community has become a home-away-from-home for main Rockbox development talk, and soap's hypothesis is that it's because "somewhat off-topic" talk starts in there, then strays on-topic
21:32:32soapI think lots of people have developed a bad habit, and the nuns need to start knocking knuckles with rulers.
21:33:02BigBambiIf any nuns rap my nuckles I'll kick them in the balls :)
21:35:12soapMy hypothesis also includes a belief that -comminuty can't become more strict w/o it becoming less strict in here, and the ASSumption the cost of it being less strict in here is lower than the cost of dev talk in there.
21:35:20fmlkugel: what should happen if skip length == 0 (i.e. we'd go to the prev track) but "prevent skipping" is active? Shouldn't we go to the start of the track if the user presses PREV?
21:35:28soapno more log-clogging for me.
21:35:50fmlkugel: as of now, nothing happens
21:36:13kugelfml: huh?
21:36:24LloreanAnd I think we can be less strict in here by taking the current "related to Rockbox" to err on the side of "if it's vague, it's related" rather than "if you can't absolutely justify its relation, it's not related" (which seems to sometimes be the case)

21:37:30soapI can agree not to give sub sub forums to tools unless it becomes apparently needed.
21:37:44soapGodEater: because all the dev talk is in -community!
21:37:53BigBambiLlorean: I'd play that by ear
21:38:09Lloreansoap: So categorical is okay maybe? "Music Management" "Audio/Video Conversion" and what other categories?
21:38:09soapI think that is what you were asking, Llorean?
21:38:13fmlkugel: has it been agreed on? Where is the description of the feature?
21:38:17BigBambiLlorean: Start with no sub forums and see how it goes
21:38:23soapI'd even leave off the catagories for now.
21:38:25soapSee what happens.
21:38:33LloreanSo just "Related Tools" as one big forum?
21:38:55soapFor now. We can add folders as needed to keep it down to a page of stuff or so, eh?
21:39:12LloreanDo we do all tools users might like, or tools with at least some recognition of Rockbox (WinFF, etc)
21:39:30soap(which opens a larger question: which is more condusive to "browsing" - a page of subforums or 5 pages of active threads?)
21:39:52Lloreansoap: Well, subforums is like a minimal search beforehand
21:40:13soapI'd err on loose for now. "Rockbox Lifestyle", baby!. Whatever helps you Rockbox your world!
21:40:20LloreanBut since the goal is support, I suppose, a search will almost be necessary anyway
21:40:54TBOL3I would enjoy it being slightly less strict in here. But I do enjoy knowing that what is mentioned is related to rockbox.
21:41:04LloreanYou aren't browsing for converter recommendations, but seeing if someone's got an answer for the problem you have with VLC
21:41:12soapI don't know how to balance it, though, in actuality. I think projects which give rockbox-specific support (like winFF) deserve more than MP3tag.
21:41:15BigBambiI err on the side of leniancy. If people want to dicuss making e.g. amarok work well with Rockbox, so be it
21:42:04kugelfml: if we do this, it means that PREV does something, while NEXT doesn't do anything
21:42:25fmlLlorean: IIRC, you've taken part in the discussion about the "prevent skipping" feature. What should happen if you activate it, your hop setting is set to "skip track", and you press "PREV" in the middle of a track. (1) Do nothing (continue playing where it is now) or (2) Jump to the start of the current track
21:42:40Lloreansoap: Maybe just make the POSTING IN THIS FORUM say "Please limit posts to questions about using your application for/with Rockbox" which will give it a lean favoring tools with Rockbox "modes"
21:43:15Lloreanfml: It should behave exactly parallel to what it does if you try to go forward IMO. So if it does nothing going forward it should do nothing going back.
21:43:23Lloreanthe keys should always "mirror" each other, in my mind.
21:43:36kugelyep, my thinking too
21:43:39fmlkugel: yes, that's abit assymetric, but these two actions are assymetric in other situations as well (if you're in the last track of the playlist and press NEXT or PREV)
21:43:57soapI think we're going to have to play it by ear either way, Llorean. An explicit stickied post saying this is a new concept, it might change.

21:44:21TBOL3Llorean: I think it should go for both forward and back. Ocasionally, I'm at the end of a long file, and inadvertantly skip to the next track. I would rather go to the next track, and go backwords, than start at the previos and go forwards.
21:44:40fmlLlorean: see my last response to kugel, it was also for you
21:44:48LloreanTBOL3: This is with "prevent track skipping" on, though
21:45:13Lloreanfml: Part of the goal of the option is to prevent a user from losing their place. It can be lost going forward or back.
21:46:01fmlLlorean: hm... But the name (prevent skipping) is a bit misleading then
21:46:19Lloreansoap: Well, I'm just trying to find a good starting point. Does "Please try to keep your questions about means of using the software with Rockbox" reasonable?
21:46:23kugelit's "prevent track skipping"
21:46:38MTI'm writing a fake codec, when writing the metadata detection, should I link it somewhere ? I always get a "undefined reference to "get_..._metadata()" when compiling.
21:46:50fmlLlorean, kugel: if we jump to the start of the track, we don't skip track
21:46:51TBOL3Perhaps a better solution would be to automatically keep a list of where you were in a file, before you skip to the next one.
21:46:55Lloreanfml: In my opinion, we should either skip to either end of the track depending on forward/back, or neither end.
21:47:02BigBambiLlorean: AYE
21:47:10TBOL3But it should only be a list of say 5 or so of your last skips.
21:47:12kugelI think it's reasonable to assume that if a person has skip length to track, but prevent track skipping on, he wants to disable PREV and NEXT entirely
21:47:33Lloreankugel: What about 5 minute skip in a 3 minute track ,though.
21:48:56kugelnot sure, currently it skips to the beginning
21:49:19fmlkugel: but if skip length is set to, say, 1 min, and and you're at 0:30 in the track, you jump to the start when PREV is pressed
21:49:19bertrikMT, yes IIRC there's some piece of code somewhere that knows about all codecs to check their metadata
21:50:39MTbertrik : I don't know if you mean 'metadata.c' ? but if so, yes, I'm supposed to add a switch case for my format there that calls the proper metadata detection function.
21:50:41bertrikMT, I think it is function get_metadata in metadata.c
21:50:43Lloreanfml: Seek still works, though.
21:50:58kugelLlorean: skipping to the end isn't an option, I think. Given that time travels forward, that would basically equal skipping the track
21:51:00MTbertrik : The problem is that whenever I 'make

21:55:27MTbertrik : by func_name I meant my function to get metadata. I should add a switch case that will invoke (get_mtf_metada() ) to get_metadata() in metadata.c
21:55:57MTbertrik : then whenever I compile (make) I get an "undefined reference to get_mtf_metadata()" error
21:56:32bertrikMT, does the source file containing get_mtf_metadata actually get compiled?
21:57:23cornwallHey, Llorean, it looks like it worked
21:57:51cornwalliTunes has this habit of spamming comments with hex data
21:58:02MTbertrik : no, that's why I was asking whether I should link it somewhere. I have written my metadata detection following the wiki and another format as an example, so I don't know why it doesn't get compiled.
21:58:09cornwallI thought I had cleared it all out, I had checked!
21:58:11kugelfml: when I think about it, taking the possiblity away to go the start of a track isn't really nice. It's not track skipping, so it shouldn't be taken away
21:58:30cornwallhowever, I still don't know what to do about the multiple CDs
21:58:41cornwallMuch of my music is broken down into 2 or 3 CDs

22:03:13fmlLlorean: I think, effectively yes (that's waht the user sees). Internally, it goes to the start of the next track which happens to be the same one since repeat is set to 1. That's my speculation, I didn't try.
22:03:27Lloreanfml: I mean if track lock is on
22:04:19fmlLlorean: then I don't know. These option dependency is too hard to understand for me.
22:04:58fmlLlorean: and: are we talking about how it works now or how it should work?
22:05:22kugelLlorean: if prevent track skipping is on, NEXT does nothing unless there's enough time to do a step
22:05:51Lloreankugel: See, that makes no sense to me.
22:06:09kugelthere's no dependency for the repeat mode
22:06:09LloreanWhy should we allow skipping backward but not forward?
22:06:27kugelbecause skipping backward doesn't mean skipping a track
22:06:30LloreanIf there's no room to actually "leave" the track, nothing should happen.
22:06:42LloreanSkipping back *does* leave the track, conceptually, it just immediately then starts
22:06:58LloreanIt's the same technicality as "skipping to immediately before the end is the same as skipping to the next track"
22:06:59kugelno, it sets elapsed to 0, and rewinds
22:07:25Lloreanyou go to before the track, and start playing
22:07:42fmlLlorean: but something is done in the case when skip length is > 0, namely jump to the start
22:07:44LloreanOtherwise skipping to the last millisecond of the current track isn't the same as skipping to the next track.
22:07:50kugelit doesn't mean skipping a track. period. prevent track skipping is meant to prevent track skipping
22:08:10Lloreankugel: Jumping to the last millisecond doesn't mean skipping a track either
22:08:12LloreanBy that argument
22:08:13 Quit planetbeing ()
22:08:23LloreanIt means "skipping within the track, then letting what will be, will be"
22:08:41kugelI don't think a user cares about that if he notices that the next track is starting right away
22:09:10Lloreankugel: And I don't think I user cares that technically he didn't leave the track, if "prevent track skipping" allowed him to lose his position when he didn't want to.
22:09:29kugelit's meant to not lose the track, not the position
22:09:42Lloreankugel: That's silly
22:09:45LloreanYou never lose the track
22:09:50LloreanIf you skip to the next track, you can immediately press "back"
22:09:51kugelit's not silly
22:10:12LloreanIt's to prevent losing the position
22:10:16LloreanSee the discussion around the feature
22:10:30LloreanThe whole point was to prevent the user from losing their position if the next track was less than skip length away
22:10:36fmlLlorean: I'm with kugel here. Either it works not how it should or the option name is misleading.
22:11:04kugelLlorean: and this is what we do
22:11:05Llorean"Previous" and "Next" skip to a point *between* tracks.
22:11:17LloreanLlorean: Except a position would be lost with a back skip, but not a forward skip
22:12:08*Llorean wonders how he managed to tab Llorean instead of Kugel
22:12:22*kugel too
22:12:43LloreanAnyway, if the goal is to prevent losing the place when the skip will take you out of the track, we should do that
22:12:55LloreanIf the goal is _not_ to prevent you from losing place, we should skip the maximum amount possible within the track either way
22:13:17LloreanMaybe 1 second from the end, so that it's possible to rewind "inward" from the end, assuming it's intentional
22:13:22 Join matsl [0] (
22:13:37TBOL3Will 1 sec. be enough?
22:13:42kugelnot at all
22:13:56LloreanIt takes less than one second to press "right" then hold "left"
22:14:27LloreanYou could do two or three if you felt this was too prone to accidents.
22:14:52TBOL3Yes, but I've found (at least for my sansa), that doing so triggers some bug in the code. (It doesn't crash the player, it just locks it up for a few seconds, and then usually starts at the begining of the playlist).
22:14:53LloreanMy point is still the same - decide what the goal is for the whole feature rather than setting separate goals for "left" and "right"
22:14:55 Join fdinel [0] (
22:15:21LloreanTBOL3: Then the bug should be fixed... features shouldn't be restricted based on it.
22:16:08TBOL3Ok, bug was a bad choice of words, but I think it is do to just a lack of power in the device.
22:16:20TBOL3But true, the point is noted, sorry.

22:40:16BigBambiSeriously, I'm not lying to you
22:40:28BigBambiWhy do people ask for support and then argue?
22:40:45temp_lazyguyyup i see it
22:40:51temp_lazyguyhow i did i argue
22:40:54temp_lazyguyi agreed
22:41:22Lloreantemp_lazyguy: It looked like argument since you were quoting something with a date before the release that didn't even need to be said if you agreed.
22:41:39M4ndriif i add a sdhc memory to my sansa e250 it would be fine or max is 4gb ?

22:46:55BigBambitemp_lazyguy: Not in the release (without building from source)
22:46:59temp_lazyguyno, i mean, is there a way to enable it

22:47:47M4ndrifrom the Quick Start tab
