#rockbox log for 2009-06-06

00:00:47funmanobo: well the bootloader is raw binary : the real code starts at offset 0x0 (the vectors)
00:01:05funmanand that means that you will get some offsets wrong
00:02:29funmanobo: at the end of main function I see that PC is loaded with 0x10F029FC (at offset 0x138, so 0xF8 for you)
00:02:51funmando you know to which real offset in bootloader it corresponds?
00:04:18obofunman: no. I'm going to redo without stripping anything. What does offset 0x3B98 look like to you?

00:06:45notlisteningfunman, any difference selecting with or without fm on the frmware?
00:07:00notlisteningthanks amiconn
00:07:41funmannotlistening: where can you select that?
00:08:05amiconnI was just digging a bit because (1) I wondered about the different voices listed depending on whether I used cscript sapi_voice.vbs /language:xxxx /listvoices in a cygwin bash (32 bit) or in a cmd shell (64 bit), and then learning about the sysnative virtual directory
00:08:23Chestetafunman: i am doing some testing on my e280v2 with the latest patches, when testing playback, should I just let things play through (like an album) or would it be better to seek around?
00:09:32funmanChesteta: do whatever you want
00:09:36ChestetaI have already done my best to describe what happens with teh radio, wheel light, and the blue lines... running a disk test now: can you think of any other pertinant things to test?
00:10:08notlisteninguse it ike an mp3 players supposed to be used?

01:29:20Unhelpfulhrm, TAGCACHE_IS_NUMERIC_OR_NONUNIQUE appears to be an optimization on sh regardless of whether we're using BIT_N or TEST_BIT_N. i'm a bit surprised that gcc can't figure out that as a truth value (1<< n) & c1 || !(1 << n) & c2 == (1<<n) & (c1 | ~c2)
01:29:29funmannotlistening: so far I thought all sansa had FM, did you try to flash an OF named e200pt.bin for example ?
01:29:58funmanor e200pf.bin (f = FM)
01:31:07notlisteningyeah as before i had no fm option in the sansa bit and i do now
01:31:34notlisteningbut it does not work even in the of

01:34:58notlisteningwell i followed the instructions to name the file i added to the player e200pa so i did
01:35:20notlisteningthe changes to the of were to add fm in the menu and to get the dualboot working
01:36:00krazykitnot all sansas have FM hardware. iirc, some european models have no FM
01:36:56notlisteningmaybe me then but then should the fm option be reomoved from my menu or disabled as it hangs the player
01:37:02notlisteningsorry more work
01:38:24funmanobo: at 0x33cc the vectors (except the reset vector) are changed
01:38:50funmannotlistening: for this, see fs#10267 ;)
01:39:58notlisteningthanks funman, lol hw is detected though :D
01:41:15funmando you mean you can see it's detected in debug menu ?
01:41:59funmanthen i don't know why OF can't use it :/

01:52:48fdinelI see, great then :)
01:53:23fdinellooking at the code I was wondering if playback could be made more efficient using IRQs
01:53:49funmanit already uses the DMA IRQs
01:53:57fdinelI see that DMA is used, but I'm not sure if IRQs could be used with it altogether
01:54:25funmanwe rely on the DMA controller to know if we can transfer more data, not on the I2SO status
01:54:25fdinelit tells when DMA is done

01:54:57funmando you think it would be better to use I2SO status?
01:55:32fdinelbut once the controller says "hey i'm done", we do prepare another buffer and then push it again
01:55:42fdinelI wonder if we could prepare the buffer in advance
01:55:58 Join slyyx [0] (n=slyyx@
01:56:12fdinellike while the DMA is being done, let's prepare the other buffer so that once DMA is completed we only have to enable the next one

02:01:39saratogaslyyx: this is an on topic channel, if you want to chat, try rockbox-community
02:02:33fdinelfunman: is PCM done exactly the same way on all ams targets?
02:03:19fdineland what about the OF? is it done using the DMA and its DMA IRQ or any other way?
02:03:22funmanperhaps it's a problem with the very small buffer
02:03:33funmani didn't read much the pcm code of OF
02:03:55fdinel(small buffer) possible
02:04:16funmanthere is an i2sout isr
02:04:26funmanwhich checks fifo push almost empty
02:05:05funmanbut it uses dma
02:05:58funmansaratoga: did you notice problems with the down button of your clip with FS #10048 ?
02:06:09slyyxIs it is svn? Or git?

02:12:47saratogafunman: have you used it much on the Fuze?
02:13:10funmanyeah, not much on the clip though
02:14:02saratogai mostly tried on the clip which probably froze once every 20-30 minutes for me
02:14:17saratogathe fuze was stable for an entire album when i tried but maybe i just got lucky
02:14:28funmanthe Clip playback isn't stable in svn either
02:14:40saratogai didn't realize that
02:15:07funmanplayback randomly stops, but then you can still navigate / shut down the player, but hardly resume playback
02:15:22tmztthe biggest problem I have seen on fuze is the playback time/counter did not advance regularly, playback was fine though
02:16:04saratogais there some way to see which thread dies when it deadlocks?
02:16:13funmantmzt: the timebar isn't regular, or the displayed time change?
02:16:30tmztdisplayed time
02:16:40funmansaratoga: i don't know, if hold shuts down the screen, backlight thread is still running ;)
02:16:51funmantmzt: i thought it was a rockbox 'feature'
02:16:51tmztprogress, not sure about the bar itself
02:17:16funmani mean rockbox changed the actual whole duration of the file
02:17:26tmztdoes the full nand work?
02:17:47tmztthe current elapsed time
02:18:23funmanthe internal storage can be fully accessed (1GB, 2GB, 4GB, 8GB)
02:19:14funmanwe still need to find what's the exact storage size, for future USB driver, and also as extra security in storage driver
02:19:17tmztI need to restore my partition table and test a current revision
02:19:36funmanfor now we get the size from the fat32 partition
02:19:47tmztexact storage size?
02:19:51fdinelfunman: seems like the OF uses the "push fifo half empty" interrupt
02:20:09tmztyou mean the nand chip itself?
02:22:23funmantmzt: well i mean what's the size of internal storage
02:22:43funmanfdinel: yep, i'm not sure how it is interleaved with the DMA interrupt however ..
02:24:50fdinelwhat I would have expected is that we start a first transfer via DMA which will fill the whole fifo, no more no less
02:25:14 Quit killan ("( :: NoNameScript 4.22 :: )")
02:25:21fdinelthand setup the irq so that the i2sout tells us when it is half empty (half full if your optimistic :P)
02:25:41fdinelthen we push it some more data (more precisely a half fifo)
02:26:24fdinelbecause what I suspect if that the way we use it now, the DMA controller "blocks" the bus everytime a single sample is popped off the fifo
02:26:40fdinelwhich can mean a lot of traffic on the bus
02:26:48funmanso it would transfer samples one by one ?
02:26:59fdinelno, a half-fifo each time
02:27:11funmani mean in our code
02:27:40fdinelwe do setup the DMA to transfer a half fifo
02:28:08 Quit barrywardell ()
02:28:18fdinelI think that what we're doing now is fill a quite big buffer, and setup DMA to transfer it all?
02:28:30fdinelthen setup another one and transfer, etc
02:28:33funmanit's more than the i2so FIFO size
02:28:51fdinelyeah kay, well I think 2 things can happen
02:29:20fdinelfirst the processor can't handle processing that much samples (converting say from MP3) in such a small time (3ms)
02:29:41 Join killan [0] (
02:29:44fdinelsecond, we may be overusing the data bus with small transfer (like a couple of samples)
02:29:53fdinel(small transfer_s_)
02:30:37funmanhum the samples are already PCM (converted) ?
02:31:08saratogathe PCM buffer holds a lot of samples
02:31:15fdinelyes once we're ready to send them, but the call to "get_more" or something like that, this is what converts the samples right?
02:31:21saratoganot sure about on the clip but on some targets its quite large
02:31:30funmanperhaps then we should calculate to transfer be a size multiple of the i2so fifo size
02:31:54funmanfdinel: no i think the call to get_more will get already decoded samples
02:32:08fdinelah kay I see
02:32:22slyyx!seen soaa
02:32:22funmanthe codec will fill the pcm buffer, and get_more will empty it
02:33:15fdinelok, and the codec fills it during "idle" time?
02:33:27saratogathe codec fills it continuously until its full
02:33:37saratogaboosting and unboosting as needed
02:34:13saratogai think its quite large, tens or hundreds of thousands of samples should be in it
02:34:21funmanfdinel: you can see the buffer state from the debug menu -> buffering thread
02:35:10fdinelkay thanks I'll have a look
02:35:26fdinelbut the my "bus overuse" think could make sense?
02:35:45funmani don't know ^^
02:35:52fdinelbut does my "bus overuse" theory make sense?
02:35:58saratogawhat do you mean overuse?
02:36:27fdinellike having the DMA controller constantly blocking the bus for 1-2 samples transfers
02:36:31 Quit Chesteta ()
02:36:36funmani imagine the i2so requests transfer from the DMA controller at needed times
02:36:37***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
02:37:26funman+ now we see very good performances, so i somehow doubt it
02:38:22fdinelit all depends on how the dma controller is wired to the i2sout. If the dma controller is wired so that every time a sample is taken out of the fifo it pushes an additionnal sample in, then it results in several single-sample transfers
02:38:27fdinelinstead of a big one
02:38:39fdinelwell yeah that's a point :P
02:38:58funmancould you mesure the bus activity with an oscilloscope?
02:39:08fdinelthe only difference between the clip and the fuze/e200 is available RAM?

02:41:46funmanfdinel: i haven't looked at this code since i came back to rockbox coding and playback worked fine :)
02:42:12funmanI think the code is in apps/pcmbuf.c
02:42:51amiconnUnhelpful: Oh? I wonder why my regex didn't find this...
02:42:53Unhelpfulalso firmware/drivers/lcd-1bit-vert.c... oddly i didn't note any binsize delta for the ones in ata.c or thread.c
02:43:23amiconnI searched for 1\w*<<
02:43:40Unhelpfuli used something rather long and complicated, and still hit more than a little noise: egrep -i '(^|[^0-9a-zA-Z])1(lu?|ul?)? *<< *' -r * | egrep -vi '(^|[^0-9a-zA-Z])1(lu?|ul?)? *<< *[0-9]|^(tools|utils)' >../rockbox_bitn_search
02:44:16*amiconn doesn't understand why Unhelpful writes (u)l for integers
02:45:00webguest22anyone have any ideas as to why the bootloader on e200v2 can't find rockbox?
02:46:16Unhelpfulhabit of overspecifying, i suppose. will 1<<31 still "work"? i guess i wasn't thinking of left shift as sign-agnostic, but it won't clear the 1 when it moves into the sign bit, will it?
02:46:36amiconn1u would suffice
02:48:02amiconnIt's a bit nasty anyway, as (1) 1(u)l is 64 bit in 64 bit sims, but (2) 1(u) is just 16 bit on 16 bit targets (which were in the works once, but never finished, and have been dropped)
02:49:22Unhelpfuli know, there aren't const suffixes that specify a size consistently. for that matter, there aren't type qualifiers that do so either, but at least stdint.h/inttypes.h handle those.
02:50:28Unhelpfuli've seen more than a few instances of long where int32_t/uint32_t might be more appropriate... DB seek values, for example. we are never going to deal with a DB file of more than 4GB :)
02:51:02 Quit funman ("'night")
02:51:17webguest22I formatted/reset the player to factory defaults, changed to MSC mode, and extracted my fresh compile of .rockbox, and yes I make zip'd it first. I can get it running on my Fuze, but on this one, it cant find the files.
02:51:40amiconnWell, on target 'long' *is* int32_t. Then, inttypes where a quite late addition in rockbox.
02:52:39Unhelpfulamiconn: on target, it is. there was a PF crash on sim, though, that turned out to be due to an array of longs allocated from the plugin buffer being the size of the entire plugin buffer on 64-bit CPUs.
02:54:20Unhelpfuli should probably ammend the 1LU to 1U in the BIT_N definitions, in case it would lead to problems on sims. should the rest of the stuff wait until post-freeze, since it's only binsize savings?
02:58:18notlisteningfunman is the right bahviour to go from 62hz to 248hz on and off while playing?
02:58:58notlisteningand is monitoring the cpu in debug a little sketchy?
02:59:00CIA-38New commit by unhelpful (r21197): Replace 1UL in BIT_N with 1U to avoid turning it into a 64-bit operation on 64-bit sim targets.
03:00:36Unhelpfulamiconn: i suppose something along the lines of (u)int*_t could be provided for constants, not that it really matters until we get a target where the default size for ints isn't 32-bit.

03:28:05*amiconn notices that for the 1 bit lcd driver, a char array would work better
03:29:07amiconnIt saves the 2-bit left shift when converting the array index to an address. Only works for indices 0..7, but that would suffice there
03:30:02Unhelpfuli suppose that a mod to struct screen would require a plugin API bump, since those are exposed in the API?
03:31:28Unhelpfulessentially, for style hooks to be useful to plugins, they'll need access to lcd_putsxyofs. i could add it to the plugin API, but i gather that things like that are "supposed" to be accessed through rb->screens?
03:38:40amiconnActually, scratch that. While it would save the shll2, it would in turn require an extu.b
03:39:23amiconnOtoh, loading a 32 bit value from memory requires two memory cycles (unless the data is in iram)
03:42:56amiconnAccess to drawing functions is still a mix. Most plugins use lcd_* functions directly. This makes them not support remote displays though

03:46:25Unhelpfuli'm not initially supporting style hooks on remotes, anyway. it takes a hook in scroll_fn and in puts_style_offset, and a support function to set the hook per-screen. the total cost is ~100B on sh, which is where i had been having the largest trouble before when using a separate hook for background clearing, text drawing, and updating.
03:47:11Unhelpfulalso, they're not of much use without either greylib or a color display, and i don't think we have either on a remote anywhere (excepting m3, which treats that as the main display)

04:14:23onlysoaaOh come on, this is open development for the benefit of everyone. xD
04:14:28slyyxAnyway, do you have a patch for me?
04:14:42onlysoaaIt's in flyspray. Just search for YP-P2 and you'll find it.
04:14:51slyyxDid you get my datasheet for the lcd btw? It should be on the wiki.
04:15:20onlysoaaIndeed I did! You're the one who posted it? ;D Thanks a bunch, although I didn't have much use for it yet.
04:15:44slyyxLong story on how I found it....
04:15:46onlysoaaEverything seems to be set in the TCC7801's LCD controller so far.
04:15:57slyyxI put it there just in case
04:16:08onlysoaaI wonder if the LCD settings can fix the colors though?
04:16:38onlysoaa...then again, I doubt it, as the LCD controller is the one outputting the rgb666 data.
04:16:46slyyxI can mess with your patch...I hate the process for getting the firmware to load onto the p2..afraid I am going to break the reset button one of these days
04:17:04onlysoaaThe controller -should- shift the bits from the rgb565 data in the framebuffer, but for some reason, it doesn't.
04:17:25onlysoaaHaha, I hope that button is durable.
04:17:37onlysoaaHold on a sec, I'll post an updated patch.
04:17:49onlysoaaI changed some timings to get the image aligned properly.
04:18:06slyyxyeah, I recall having that same issue, and fixing it...

04:43:01 Part andrew[andrboot] ("Leaving")
04:43:35tmztonlysoaa: and is it packed (16-bit) or not (32-bit)?
04:43:49slyyxI can check
04:44:03slyyxI have the datasheet around here somewhere...
04:47:56onlysoaaI'm bacl.
04:49:23 Quit notlistening (Remote closed the connection)
04:49:25onlysoaaback*. tmzt, what are you referring to when you're asking if it's packed or not?
04:49:45tmztthe bytes, if it's rgb666 it can't be 16-bit
04:50:04onlysoaaWell that's the output from LCD controller to LCD.
04:50:05slyyxthe interface for the lcd is 8bit if that means anything...
04:50:09tmztwell, it can but then it has to scan out more than is in the framebuffer
04:50:27onlysoaaIt reads from the framebuffer in rgb565 though.
04:51:34onlysoaaThe problem seems to be that the LCD controller doesn't convert from rgb565 to rgb666 properly.
04:52:12slyyxThe actual lcd is 24bit
04:52:21slyyx8bits per color
04:53:00onlysoaaPerhaps it's a configuration thing, but I didn't see anything relevant to that in the TCC docs.
04:53:51onlysoaaWell it seems that the P2's LCD is hard-set at rgb666.
04:54:55onlysoaaIt uses only 6 of the 8 pins per channel for the connection, and displays things way off when I use rgb888 output.
04:55:34slyyxOh, ok
04:55:49slyyxLess pinouts I guess
04:56:16slyyxLess colours as a result though
04:56:51Unhelpfuli've noticed a few exceptions to "no typedefs in rockbox", mostly for function pointers. i suppose adding one more wouldn't really be a big problem, especially if it saves duplicating the argument list of the function all over the place...
04:57:05onlysoaaIn any case, it seems that we need to find how to make the LCD controller shift the R and G channels << 1.
04:59:53slyyxI am still trying to make my build system work...still says I do not have arm gcc
05:02:37slyyxGuys: Any reason why it would inform me that I do not have lang.h?
05:05:06tmztI have something similar LANG_FMR seems to be missing, even after running configure
05:05:33tmztbuilding for fuze
05:05:52onlysoaaOh! Before compiling for the P2, remove all contents of apps/plugins/SOURCES and SUBDIRS.
05:06:06slyyx...How abnormal
05:06:39onlysoaaPlugins don't have support for the P2's screen resolution yet, so they'll throw all sorts of errors.
05:07:55slyyxOh yeah, I remember that
05:10:15slyyxonlysoaa: You forgot to make a keymaps file btw
05:10:50Unhelpfulmany of them won't care. pictureflow should compile just fine.
05:11:18slyyxI just touched it (SEE: touch), works now
05:11:55 Quit n1s (Remote closed the connection)
05:12:19slyyxUnhelpful: Did you forget to include some config file or something?
05:12:36Unhelpfulalso, you might look at converting the data when it's sent to the LCD, unless the LCD controller supports correct conversion from rgb565. the correct conversion would be (c << 1) | (c >> 4)
05:13:30slyyxAlright, feed it one bit shifted, gotcha
05:14:03tmztUnhelpful: does rockbox only support 16bit then?
05:14:39slyyxrockbox should also have a grayscale mode for some
05:14:46Unhelpfultmzt: somebody could write an 18-bit LCD driver. we don't have one yet. :P
05:15:19slyyxUnhelpful: Yeah, this thing does not want to build
05:15:29onlysoaaEven if we write an 18-bit LCD driver, it won't do anything.
05:15:51onlysoaaAnd oops @ keymap file. Copy the D2's and rename it keymap-ypp2.c
05:16:07Unhelpfulonlysoaa: what exactly do you mean, it won't do anything? it would not be so hard to support 18-bit bitmap data. :P
05:16:54onlysoaaWhat I mean is that the LCD controller supports only 1, 2, 4, 15, 16 and 24 bit input.
05:17:13onlysoaaAnd we already know that it must output 18-bit to work.
05:17:16onlysoaaI'll be right back.
05:18:04slyyxBasically, we need to feed the controller 24bit input, that is actually shifted 18bit...I think
05:18:07slyyxonlysoaa: yes?
05:18:22Unhelpfulah... and it doesn't properly handle 16-bit input?
05:18:51slyyxIf I understood what he told me
05:19:23slyyxSo we give the controller shifted 18bit, so it can give the actual lcd 18bit...
05:19:56slyyxonlysoaa: button-ypp2.c is broken
05:21:02Unhelpfulwell, we have lots of code already for handling 16-bit. so you could also use that, and convert to 24-bit before sending it to the LCD. or you could use 24-bit, and send it directly to the LCD.
05:21:13onlysoaaI think we need to feed the controller 24bit, which is shifted 16bit.
05:21:22Unhelpful18-bit sounds like a *huge* pain (because it's not a whole number of bytes)
05:21:30slyyxUnhelpful: We can just hand it 16bit though
05:21:38onlysoaaIndeed. :P
05:21:43slyyxas long as the controller gets valid 24bit, apparently
05:21:52onlysoaaHow is button-ypp2.c broken?
05:22:04slyyxComplains that everything is a redeclaration

05:25:44Unhelpfulbut you just said it doesn't handly 16-bit correctly...

06:34:45slyyxBATT_LEV contains the current battery level, EXT_PWR=Detection of external power..EXT_BAT_DET..Detection of battery?
06:35:40onlysoaaHuh? Can those be accessed from Rockbox right now?
06:35:57slyyxFind out waht AIN0, AIN1, and AIN2 are in this diagram and yes

06:41:10slyyxI also found the pins for the leds..
06:41:13onlysoaaCool stuff man, seems like I'm not alone with this anymore!
06:41:18slyyxDude, I wish I had this diagram before :P
06:41:37onlysoaaYeah, the pins are all there. It's just a matter of mapping them to the correct GPIO pin, I think
06:41:54slyyxmaps out all the pins for like,every chip
06:42:19onlysoaaI know, but it doesn't say which GPIO bits they relate to.
06:42:42slyyxLook on the other datasheet
06:42:48slyyxIt tells you that
06:43:39onlysoaaWhich one?!
06:43:53slyyxYou have the one for the TCC78X right?
06:44:09slyyxIn there, search the name of the pin they give
06:44:14onlysoaaIt doesn't say how the chip is configured for the P2 though.
06:44:18slyyxVolume up=MMC1-D7
06:44:35slyyxLED GReen=MMC1-D5
06:45:15slyyxblue and red are GPIO24 and GPIO16
06:45:16onlysoaaYeah, that's all in the schematics, but it still doesn't say which GPIO bits they relate to!
06:45:32slyyxsec is mmc
06:45:54slyyxgood qn :P
06:46:06slyyxI can tell you red and blue are on 24 and 16 though :P

11:15:24bertrikfunman, yes I saw that problem on my clip

11:15:46bertrikI'm now running with an alternative clip button driver
11:16:09funmanoh! what are you using?
11:17:11bertrikI wrote a proof-of-principle driver where the row is changed each kernel tick
11:17:43bertrikso in one tick it reads one row of buttons, then selects the next row to be read in the following tick
11:17:48 Join {phoenix} [0] (
11:18:15funmanso you don't have to use explicit delay after row switch ?
11:18:16bertrikthis way there is plenty of time between row changes for the button column pins to stabilise
11:18:36bertrikfunman, exactly, no more delay
11:18:59bertrikI worry a bit about this being slow, because it may take up to 3 kernel ticks for a button press to be detected

11:21:29funmanperhaps button responsiveness can suffer 30ms delay on the clip since there is no wheel
11:22:09bertrikI'll clean it up and create a flyspray patch
11:24:19funmancool, now the only thing preventing us from applying FS #10048 is radio not working on e200v2, even with FS #12067 applied. if there is a patch - even something you don't understand - i think we can commit it and work on a fix after having FS #10048 in SVN. What do you think about it ?
11:25:08funmanFlynDice: did you hack around e200v2 radio ?
11:26:35n1si think breaking something like fm in svn in an unsupported port is fine if the changes otherwise move the port forward
11:26:54bertrikfunman, I agree, I would like to move forward with fs#10048

13:30:56notlisteningThis can come in a script for that can be edited or a packaged exe file what ever you want
13:31:14domonokysounds interessting. which SAPI interface would you use ?
13:31:32domonokyie VB, C++ or something else.
13:31:50notlisteningI use a combination of tcl and tcom to communicate over COM
13:31:58notlisteningit works very nicely
13:32:06domonokyif it is a small executable, it will be easy to include into rbutil, and use it for voice/talk creation
13:32:42notlisteningWe are talking a very small exe
13:32:49pixelmaaren't there already some scripts? Maybe it's something else but...
13:33:15Mikachuwhere does it get the actual voices from then?
13:33:21domonokypixelma: we have vb script to use sapi voices in rbutil, but that wont work in wine :-)
13:33:22notlisteningbasically like espeak but for sapi
13:33:46notlisteningit talks to the SAPI engine already installed on the system just like what you have
13:34:07notlisteningbut it is more flexable and more robust in terms of issues with QT etc
13:34:26*amiconn once wanted to look into accessing sapi from a program
13:34:35notlisteningand it runs under wine ;)
13:35:02notlisteningin my project i have already done all the ground work
13:35:17amiconnIt would be especially interesting for sapi4. SAPI4 doesn't render as fast as possible when rendering to a file, unlike SAPI5
13:35:55domonokynotlistening: if you take a look at base/ TTSExes class, you will see, that its very easy to use a tts engine as small exe in rbutil.
13:36:05amiconnSAPI4 runs realtime. With the C++ api it is possible to switch it to 200%, 400% or 800% realtime. This is *supposed* to work from automation (i.e. vbscript) as well, but it doesn't
13:36:44domonokyamiconn: i would be happy if you do this, but the C++ sapi interface is nasty and you need a SDK to use it (additional depencies)..
13:37:17amiconnYeah, automation is definitely easier...

15:12:36Unhelpfulamiconn: in plugins it's likely strictly a speed optimization at ~4B per invocation it takes 32 of them to make up for the table.
15:13:20amiconnYeah, but one of the is the jpeg decoder...
15:18:16Unhelpfuli think jpeg has four or five. it also occurred to me that the shifted 40-bit multiply routine for sh might be a good basis for a sh-specialized fmul - by tweaking the shift factors used in each stage it could directly calculate (a*b) >> 10 without overflow
15:21:59amiconnI was referring to jpeg decoding speed. jpeg isn't very fast for larger images

16:56:39bertrikfunman, indeed it doesn't seem to have any effect on battery runtime, but was the display on during this time (display off also means DCDC15 off IIUC)
16:56:40Mikachumaybe turn it into a circular buffer somehow?

16:59:22bertrikfunman, I don't really know if we should enable/disable DCDC15 together with display on/off or with backlight on/off, or maybe it doesn't matter at all
16:59:29Tornethere seem to be several different lit function in pluginapi though
16:59:45Tornenot entirely sure which does what :)
16:59:55saratogahomei could measure DCDC15 power consumption on the e200v2 if it would help

17:01:32saratogahomeok i'll try and do it this weekend

17:02:41bertrikfunman, ehm, yes that's what I meant
17:03:05funmansaratogahome: well DCDC15 is already used (and mandatory) for e200v2 backlight, but perhaps it's different on Clip if the DCDC is not linked to the LCD

17:09:04Tornewell, fonts

17:09:58n1syou can load font, draw some text, load new font draw more text etc. but it will be horribly inefficient and hit the disk...

17:28:57saratogahomewhat value does the clip use?
17:29:41funmanthere doesn't seem to be any change with more current, so we keep it to the minimum : 1*1.25
17:30:08bertrikthe OF also uses 1
17:30:37saratogahomeif its 1.25 mA driving a load, the unloaded current is likely small
17:30:50bertrikI forgot to mention that since this is a DC-DC converter, a current of 1.25 mA at the output does probably not result in the same current on the input of the DCDC converter

17:37:21anigavany hints?
17:37:23n1sanigav: how do you reboot?
17:37:27LloreanAre you shutting down, and booting back up, or are you using "menu+select" (which is like unplugging your computer)

17:37:38LloreanMenu+Select is a bad idea.
17:37:45anigavwell that's the reboot

17:39:43LloreanAny idea when someone will volunteer to do it, then finish that work?
17:39:44saratogahomei think for mp3 probably never, but for other formats it might happen
17:40:09Lloreansaratogahome: What stops it from happening for MP3? Lack of a standard tag?
17:40:13anigavwhat does that have to do with the format? aren't the pics in the tags?
17:40:52saratogahomeunhelpful explained a bit before, but basically in tags the files are scrambled, which would mean we'd need a descrambler somewhere in core prior to decoding
17:40:55n1sanigav: the tags for each format is more or less of a pain to work with and often there are no clear standard for these embedded imaged
17:40:57Lloreananigav: Each audio format also has different tag formats, which provide different challenges in an embedded environment.
17:41:00bertrikI think we're looking at a couple of different ams sansa radio problems now: sko (e250v2) can't make radio work at all on his e200, flyndice can make it work with fs10048 using a larger delay, mc2739 (e260v2?) can make it work too with a larger delay on some versions of fs#10048 and apparently he has a different revision chip
17:43:53saratogahomei'd like to commit MMU changes as soon as they're ready, test the bootloaders and then do a release for the fuze and e200v2
17:44:06saratogahomeand perhaps the clip if th e deadlocking issue is resolved

17:45:59anigavno, I meant h264, that would rock
17:46:08saratogahomethats not going to happen
17:46:32LloreanNot without some hardware documentation for the broadcom chip appearing magically out of the blue, and then the aforementioned need for a volunteer to do the work.
17:46:49saratogahomeand a compiler for it!
17:47:12Lloreansaratogahome: The volunteer could always do that by hand. I'm sure our friend anigav here wants it badly enough to put in the effort, or he wouldn't be asking, right?

17:51:24LloreanI don't think there's been a solid look into it.
17:51:53n1snah, it's a very minor feature for a single target and probably a lot of work so...
17:52:18anigavto be honest, I never use my ipod for watching video anyway, and I think most people don't
17:52:46anigavthe only thing that I really miss is the album art
17:52:53Lloreann1s: It probably could've attracted more interest two years ago, but the iPod Video's quickly losing relevance as a major target.
17:53:46anigavLlorean, how so? I think they've sold a fair number of them ... isn't the ipod classic compatible, video hardware-wise?
17:53:52*Llorean wouldn't be surprised if someone looks into it again at least briefly if we ever have h.264 in software in the fuutre.
17:54:04Lloreananigav: The iPod Classic is _entirely_ different hardware.
17:54:10LloreanWhat does it playing the same videos have to do with anything?
17:54:24n1sLlorean: yeah, if we get a working h264 player it would make much more sense to look at it
17:54:54anigavaren't those embedded cpus much too slow for that?

18:20:28LloreanWhat would be the benefit of being two HID devices?
18:21:21gevaertsyou could check if it's really 3 endpoints. I think it is, but I seem to remember not being entirely sure if that number included EP0.
18:21:36tomersLlorean: No benefit at all... I am now trying to merge both functions into one (Consumer - Play/Stop etc. which is already implemented, and regular keyboard)

19:48:14pixelmaperhaps I should make it c200 then, similar to e200 (and/or add "series" there as well)
19:48:53LloreanProbably a good idea for now.
19:49:06LloreanMaybe we can ask Zagor about his results when next he's around.
19:50:40pixelmado you mean I should just add these results and leave the old, or replace them (still asking Zagor)?
19:51:00LloreanI'd say replace them for now, and ask Zagor
19:54:22pixelmathe reason I was looking at this was the forum thread of the one who couldn't access his c250 for installing the bootloader under Linux and I thought he might be hitting this Linux bug where the Sansas were mounted in MTP even when in UMS mode
19:54:49pixelmaor something like this... forgot the details

21:23:51LloreanUnhelpful: My bug report is on "Insert Shuffled"
21:24:07LloreanWhich means "Shuffle" is actually off, so the playlist's "in order" should be / is the shuffled order
21:24:26LloreanWhen I'm resuming, it should be the same as resuming an ordered playlist (because it is one). The random seed *shouldn't* be needed, afaik.
21:25:29Unhelpfulright, since the playlist is ordered. and it's obvious that it must be, because the playlist is in essentially the same order when you resume. i wonder how it gets rotated...?

21:31:03nielpferdhello @ all :)
21:31:12Unhelpfulby "different" you mean that one shows the rotation?
21:31:16nielpferdi have a question :)
21:31:22LloreanOne is a rotated version of the other
21:31:44gevaertsnielpferd: that's very interesting! What could it be? ;)
21:32:02LloreanUnhelpful: At least it's very, very easy to reproduce. Tried it on two players, worked every time
21:32:11nielpferdwith the new usb driver it seems that my ipod 5g isn't cgarging anymore
21:32:14Unhelpfuli would think that "the return value of a function varies between targets" would be another valid use of typedefs?
21:32:15nielpferdis that normal?
21:33:21gevaertsnielpferd: more or less. USB charging doesn't work properly on ipods, which was one of the reasons why 3.2 was released without our own USB mode
21:34:02nielpferdUsually my ipod was charged after a few hours on my pc.. now its not charged at all :D
21:34:03nielpferdah ok
21:34:34Lloreangevaerts: Speaking of that, any progress/consensus about it re 3.3? I haven't been around too much the last few days
21:34:47gevaertsThere is a fix (see, but we don't want to risk setting ipods on fire, which is why it's not applied yet
21:34:48nielpferdwill it get fixed in the future? Or are there problems like with the broadcom chip?
21:35:36gevaertsLlorean: I strongly suspect that that patch could go in as-is, but I really don't know enough about batteries and ipods to make the decision
21:36:26LloreanI think we can probably be comfortable enabling it for the 5G/5.5G/Nano
21:37:03Llorean*probably* all of them, given that we were charging iPods before without a real concern, and if we got away with it then with wall chargers, we're probably fine now with USB.
21:37:16LloreanBut that's me and my completely-not-supported-by-hard-facts opinion
21:37:25gevaertssame here
21:37:53LloreanMaybe we should make 3.3 like 3.2 (in regard to USB) and enable it *immediately* after the branch, with a "warning" in the project news that it's experimental charging code.
21:38:07LloreanThat gives a whole 3 months for daring people to see if their batteries explode.
21:39:13gevaertswhat would the right forum be to ask about people's experiences with charging on H10 and mr100? General discussion?
21:39:41LloreanYeah, sounds about right
21:40:01gevaertsI'd like to have some idea on whether it works on those. I guess a forum post is reasonably likely to help
21:40:16LloreanWhile the mr100 doesn't seem to have many(any?) users around, I'd imagine we'd have heard about charging issues on the H10 by now
21:40:30LloreanMaybe a ML message as well?
21:40:56gevaertsmaybe, yes. User ML?
21:41:03*gevaerts would need to subscribe to that...
21:41:17Unhelpfulamiconn: you mentioned the section alignment on SH possibly causing some binsize changes from BIT_N to go unnoticed. does that affect the sizes reported by nm? because i was using objdiff to track the changes rather than rockbox-info.
21:41:17LloreanYeah, dev-ML is unlikely to get any better response than just asking in here.

22:34:17slyyxI fell asleep last night, I have mostly figured out trying to make it turn the red led on
22:34:41DhraakellianOther than permanently crippling the playback of DRM crippled files (ohnoes! whatever shall I do?!), how high is the risk of adversely affecting my 8GB Fuze if I put Rockbox on it?
22:35:02onlysoaaslyyx: Ah cool. Mind posting a patch?
22:35:16slyyxIt does nothing interesting yet
22:35:23slyyxJust added one definition for this flag
22:35:26LloreanDhraakellian: Have you read the associated forum thread and wiki pages?
22:35:53domonokyDhraakellian: pretty low, but no garantie, its not finished.
22:36:06LloreanIt's still in development, which means risk could be anywhere from "next to none" which is most of the time, to "could permanently brick it" if something's wrong and gone uncaught.
22:37:04onlysoaaslyyx: ahh. I'll get working on the LCD then.
22:37:05***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
22:38:07Dhraakellianhehheh... the "reconsider it" has kept me from installing it so far, but now that I have nicer earphones, and the microSDHC card in my e200 looks like it might need another round of hotgluing to keep it in, I'm edging more towards the "and once more"
22:39:41Dhraakellianoh, and I saw an ABi thread with links to builds and such that tempt me sorely with their convenience
22:41:41slyyxonlysoaa: onlysoaa LED_Green is connected to the pin for MMC1_D5, MMC_5 is actually pin SCK1, By setting SCK1 to 0b01 it tells it to make that pin GPIOE21...
22:44:04onlysoaaHmm... How does one set SCK1 to 0b01 though?
22:44:52slyyxThat is set under CPUD5 (0xF005A0D4) bits 11 and 10
22:46:32KupopI just set up my cross compiler and put the PATH= stuff in my .bashrc do I need to restart for it to take effect?
22:46:48slyyxNow..I think it may be another endian or something..because xoring bit 11 and 10...oh wait..xor does not work like that

22:49:46onlysoaaOh, so that's what all that CPUD stuff is about.

22:51:36 Quit marek__ ("Leaving")
22:52:29ender`that's xor
22:52:32bertrikI think you mean xor
22:52:50onlysoaaWouldn't it be &~?
22:53:22onlysoaaxor would flip the bits, but I think what he wants is bit clear.
22:53:26Mikachua = (1100 + 1110) & ~0xff
22:54:37bertriksetting a bit is typically done with a |= (1 << bit) and clearing it is typically a &= ~(1 << bit)
22:55:17Mikachuyes, i am completely stupid tonight, i was thinking hex, not binary :)
22:55:50onlysoaaWouldn't it rather be toclear &= ~0b1100?
22:56:02Mikachuyes, but you can't write binary literals in c

23:31:15Kupopcan I update the bootloader from within rockbox?
23:31:32LloreanThere are directions in the manual and RBUtil should also tell you the directions.
23:32:04KupopI just tried the RBUtil, must have done it wrong
23:32:37LloreanThere are steps *after* you run RButil
