03:05:51saratogathe new clip patch seems like a pretty big improvement
03:06:03Strife89After using the iPod for a while, the time feels pretty good. :)
03:06:34Strife89I kept wondering, for a while, if the Fuze would even drain before I went to sleep.
03:07:44Strife89Furthermore, this is a fairly worn Fuze. The battery is certainly nowhere near tip-top shape.
03:07:47JdGordonpixelma: you get anywhere with the statusbar bmps?
03:08:25Strife89That said, I'll start an OF benchmark tomorrow, then another Rockbox bench that involves *NO* interaction.
03:09:30Strife89saratoga: Also note that I used ogg vorbis files. VBR, just short of 192 kbps.

11:35:58TheSeventopik: i managed to get rid of all big things on the stack inside the FTL, so this one must be coming from the FAT driver
11:38:02TheSevenso there are two possibilities: move FAT buffers from the stack to the bss (and thereby disallow simultaneous use of the affected parts of the fat driver by other threads, thus probably requiring more interlocking), or just increase the stack size

12:54:56kuddel_hello everybody,
12:54:56kuddel_can anyone of you tell me if there's the possibility to sync my iaudio X5 with iTunes like an iPod? I'm experiencing with tools like itunemywalkman but the don't really feel natural in iTunes on a Mac. Any hints are appreciated :)
12:55:38TorneWuffThere is an experimental patch to make other players pretend to be iPods, yes

12:56:32TorneHm, actually that's specific to e200 SD
12:56:43Tornebut the principle applies :)
12:56:54ED-209first I'd like to say thanks for an AWESOME firmware/OS
12:57:32ED-209second I'd like to report some h300 bugs which hopefully one of you can put on the bug tracker?
12:57:54ED-209I don't want to log in
12:58:01ED-209or register
12:58:57ED-209the first is that with the wired remote, you cannot turn the player on. it says the hold switch is engaged (regardless of whether the switch is engaged or not) and refuses to turn on via the remote.
12:59:16TorneEr, please report bugs in the tracker :)

12:59:23toresbeHello :)
12:59:26kuddel_@Torne: cool, i'm gonna try this and report some feedback in the next days :)
12:59:52ED-209I don't want to register my info, I was hoping someone already registered could report these bugs
12:59:58ED-209they are universal to all h300 users
13:00:01toresbeI've got one of those 3G iPod Nanos. I gather that there's no running support and no current efforts to set that up, either
13:00:21TorneED-209: there's no point someone who can't reproduce a bug reporting it
13:00:27BagderED-209: so what about follow-up questions? testing patches? helping out?
13:00:29Tornetoresbe: Not yet, no.
13:00:41toresbeWhat would be the outstanding challenges in terms of porting it to the 3G?
13:00:55ED-209badger: I'm not a coder, I can't fix any of these bugs and I have no idea what I'm doing with linux
13:01:02Tornekuddel_: you realise you will need to do some reasonable amount of development to make that work on your player
13:01:10Bagderand I'm not badger...
13:01:45Tornekuddel_: not a huge amount, but still. you will need to be able to do more than just apply patches and build; the patch only changes the behaviour for e200, not iaudiox5
13:03:54TorneED-209: the point is that if you want the bug fixed you should be prepared to answer questions from the developers about it, test possible fixes, etc, which means we need to be able to contact you
13:04:15ED-209ok where do I sign up
13:04:19TorneED-209: the bugtracker is not just for developers to use

13:19:51ED-209Hi, I added two bugs which I think are quite major for the H300 series
13:20:30ED-209it said it helps if you talk about them in the channel
13:20:37ED-209should I link them?
13:20:50Tornewe can find them
13:21:11ED-209one is the wired remote not being able to switch on the player
13:21:29ED-209but the major one is the plugin "metronome" being totally non functional. and it also jams the player
13:22:58ED-209I've found that the h300 series is quite popular with musicians or DJs, with the inbuilt line in/out and recording capabilities... the pitch detector was an awesome inclusion, but the metronome is just as important, especially for drummers (there are some dj applictions for this too)
13:23:46ED-209is there anyone working on the h300?
13:24:40ED-209I mean there must be a relatively large community, these players are 6 years old and are selling for 300USD on ebay, routinely
13:24:58ED-209even broken ones sell for a couple hundred
13:25:43ED-209the demand for them is certainly out there and rockbox is makes these into a fantastic unit, but the metronome is a really important feature I find
13:26:08TorneMetronome bug is already on FS, you know
13:26:12TorneFS #10546
13:26:21ED-209it was under h100 series
13:26:26ED-209a different player
13:26:39Tornethose players are very similar
13:26:48Torneand someone already commented there saying it doesn't work on 320 either
13:27:08ED-209more exposure can't hurt in the fixing of this bug can it?
13:27:36TorneEr, duplicate bugs do hurt, yes, they're a waste of people's time :)
13:27:56ED-209it's not a duplicate bug, I put it under the h300 series
13:28:00Torneit's much more useful if everyone experiencing the same problem is actually on the same page, so someone fixing it doesn't have to repeat themselves
13:28:03ED-209the previous bug was for an h100
13:28:21TorneThat doesn't matter..

13:28:29TorneIt's extremely likely ot be the same issue.

13:28:45TorneThere is also another bug with the metronome on a different player which is a keymapping problem. it's possible this is also a keymapping problem.
13:28:54Bob_Chow would a user know that?
13:28:59ED-209ok, well you said to register and report the bugs, so I did, how was I to know that the h100 and h300 are similair
13:29:28TorneED-209: I didn't say you were
13:29:36Tornebut you seem to be objecting to my claim that it's a duplicate..
13:29:43TorneI suggest you watch 10546 instead
13:29:56Torne(or as well)
13:30:34ED-209well, it's under h100 series, and absolutely nothing has happened with that bug report except another user commenting

13:32:24ermalit doesn say about cpu
13:32:55Torneoh, you mean a particular SoC?

13:33:23ermalcpu is "action"
13:33:45ermalif yes I will buy an mp4 with action cpu
13:33:54ermalto test it
13:34:09ED-209is there anything I can do to help with these bugs?
13:35:13TorneED-209: If you can't fix the code yourself, then probably not until someone with the right player suggests something to try or proposes a possible fix.
13:35:42ED-209I'll get an email if the bug is commented on by someone won't I?
13:35:55Torneyou should watch 10546 to make the same happen for that.
13:36:15ED-209ok then.
13:36:16Tornemy housemate has an h120, if the bug is reproducable on his player I may have a look
13:36:38Torneand if i can fix it then you can test it on h300 :)
13:36:48Tornebut i can't guarantee anything
13:36:59ED-209the metronome? I should have opened this irc web client in a different tab
13:37:36gevaertsED-209: this is with 3.4?
13:37:51ED-209it's with whatever the last release is
13:38:18ED-209the only one that I've used ROLO to put on my h300
13:38:32 Part ermal
13:38:57ED-209previously I was just patching/unzipping
13:40:06ED-209the thing that makes me sad is that I've used this unit for years, it's on it's 3rd battery at least, and 3rd or 4th hard drive
13:40:18gevaertsOK. Could you try with the latest current build? There have been some issues with button maps on h300 that have been fixed since them. I suspect that they could possibly be related
13:40:38ED-209I just unzip the current build onto my unit?
13:41:03ED-209I'll do that now

13:45:00ED-209there is another problem too, when I plug the unit in via USB, the battery meter drops to zero and it starts charging from there
13:45:19ED-209or it drops significantly and starts charging from that point
13:46:07TorneThat's probably not a bug
13:46:19ED-209it's a brand new battery.
13:46:22Tornebattery voltage readings are just like that, especially on batteries that are getting on a bit
13:46:27ED-209cameron sino
13:46:38Tornethe voltage reading depends on the load
13:46:47Tornewhich changes depending if you have an external power source attached or not.
13:46:52ED-209when fully charged it routinely says there is 27h 30m left of runtime
13:47:22ED-209should I plug the wall adapter in?
13:47:28ED-209and see if it changes?
13:47:28*Torne doesn't know what runtime the h300 is supposed to have
13:48:04ED-209it's safe to plug the wall adapter in while it's hooked up via USB isn't it?
13:48:58ED-209or no?
13:49:01kuddel_hey, me again. Just want you to know, if anybody else has my problem (sync iTunes w/ non iPod): there are 3 tools available for macs to sync tracks from iTunes onto a non iPod-Player: iTunemyWalkman (hard cpies selected playlists to a specified destination on any mountable device), SyncTunes (development ended in a buggy state but has many recommendations for older versions in forums etc.) and Podless, a littls iTunes Plugin that does nearly
13:49:02kuddel_same like the first but isn't as configurable. So, if anyone else asks you, you know ;)
13:49:54Tornekuddel_: If you try one out and find it works well for rockbox, please mention it on so other people can find it there?
13:50:17peturbatteries go old, even if not used. If you don't know the manufacturing date, you can't say the battery is brand new. Certainly for a target like h300 that is several years old, the new batteries could already be 2+ years old...
13:50:26TorneMore useful than kjust telling us :)
13:50:30kuddel_@Torne will be done in some days :)
13:50:52Torneyah, no hurry or anything, just if you find a tool that works well it's good to share it there, as that's where we tend to direct people asking for such tools :)

13:53:05ED-209I bought it from ebay, the seller said it was brand new, it came with a recent manufacturing date and it's performed like a new one
13:53:49ED-209and besides I had to dremel out the back of my iriver to accomodate a 2200mAh battery
13:54:08TorneED-209: *some* amount of variance in battery voltage is expected, is my point; even if it's a new battery then there's no guarantee it won't jump some when you switch from discharging to charging.
13:54:13ED-209and the polarity had to be changed
13:54:30peturha! you bought an ipod battery, not h300!
13:54:56peturmy CameronSino h300 battery (also 2200mAh) fitted fine and no polarity change
13:55:14ED-209hang on
13:55:27Torneit doesn't seem likely to be a bug, is all; it's *possible*, but reading the battery voltage is probably pretty simple code and if it was wrong someone would likely've noticed. ;)
13:55:40ED-209actually this new one was for an h300
13:56:01ED-209it was very slightly smaller than the ipod battery I had in it before
13:56:28Torneif it was for the h300 it wouldn't have its polarity backwards... :)

16:15:09ED-209the battery meter and "estimated run time" don't seem to correlate
16:15:27TorneOne is calculated frm the other

16:15:37Torneso that seems unlikely
16:15:51Tornewe work out battery percentage by consulting a discharge curve and comparing it to the voltage.
16:16:19Torneand then we use the percentage, the design capacity in mAh, and the estimated average current draw, to work out the runtime estimate
16:16:26ED-209when running the unit for say, 10 minutes, and the percentage drops maybe 2%
16:16:54Torneif the percentage goes down by 2% the estimate should go down by 2%
16:17:09ED-209it doesn't
16:17:47Tornewhat *does* it do?
16:18:28ED-209well there was a drop in estimated remaining runtime of a lot
16:18:48TorneBut was that 2%?
16:19:02TorneThe estimation process is not very bright, as described above.
16:19:02ED-209it wasn't 2% of what it said by any means

16:22:59TorneIf your estimate is not changing in sync with the percentage something odd is going on :)
16:23:11Tornebut if it's just being inaccurate, there are a large number of possible reasons.
16:23:51TorneThe estimate will change when things like usb being plugged/unplugged happen, also
16:24:08Tornethe current draw estimate is based on which hardware is active.
16:24:43ED-209is there a warm up period for lipo batteries?
16:25:38Tornevoltage varies with charge level, according to a predictable curve, and also according to load (in a less predictable way)
16:25:50Torne(well, less predictbale because we don't know the load)
16:26:24 Join DerPapst [0] (n=DerPapst@
16:26:34ED-209so you switch the unit on and it'll drain the battery exactly the same as if it were running for 4 hours? that curve doesn't change from "cold" starts so to speak?
16:26:54Tornelipoly is nice and predictable when new
16:27:15Torneit gets worse the older it is, because the internal resistance changes and the voltage starts to become more and more dependent on the load

16:51:34AlexPED-209: We don't need to know, this is a development and support channel
16:52:08ED-209ok can you answer my question then please? how do you reset the total runtime?
16:52:23saratogaprobably just delete your .rockbox folder and unzip another one
16:52:33saratogamaybe keep you config file if you don't want to lose your settings
16:53:57Lloreansaratoga: Would that be something kept in nvram.bin?
16:54:13ED-209the config file will have all my settings but not the runtime? I've changed a LOT of settings that I won't remember how to put back to the way they were, and will probably have to ask in here hwo to change them all back
16:54:33LloreanED-209: Why would you need to ask in here how to change settings? They're all in the manual and the menus.

16:58:06ED-209at the time I couldn't find exactly what I wanted in the manual, this was about 2 years ago, aside from the obvious ones. I guess I'll re-read it if necessary but I'd like to keep my settings. I will look in the cfg file now and see if it's stuff I understand
16:58:06markunLlorean, AlexP: why give a suggestion in the form of a question?
16:58:45ED-209^ haha
16:58:53AlexPmarkun: To see if he has any reason not to?
16:59:18Lloreanmarkun: I wasn't giving a suggestion. I assumed ED-209 is intelligent enough to be able to navigate the menus and read the manual, so was wondering what must be lacking that would necessitate questions here.
16:59:33Lloreanmarkun: Pardon me for making it unclear and sounding like I was assuming he was too stupid to know about the manual.

19:44:55gevaertsJdGordon|: is it possible that the wps code has redraw issues if you use conditional tags that specify differently sized viewports to be shown (%Vdx) for different cases? More precisely, it seems that the now no longer used screen bits do not get cleared
19:47:59pixelmagevaerts: my WPS use different sized viewports in some cases but I always fill the screen complety (with another viewport). That works well but I think I saw problems during "development" when spots where empty, but it's quite some time ago and I seem to remember that I somehow expected that due to an info given. Can't remember the details though
19:48:32gevaertspixelma: is the one I'm looking at
19:48:45darkhamhi people, i would know about assistive technology on rockbox
19:48:47pixelmasaw that too

19:52:03AlexPThe clip "don't do USB, charge" button is hold select - on (virtually?) all other players it is menu (and quickscreen). Any reason for this difference? I'd like it to be changed to be consistent
19:52:15darkhamLlorean, when user scrool menus, a voice talk the scroll?
19:52:55Lloreandarkham: I have no idea what you mean by "talk the scroll." A voice will read the names of menu entries if that's enabled, yes.
19:52:58AlexPdarkham: Talks the scroll? As in, says "Now scrolling down"?
19:53:04JdGordon|gevaerts: sure its possible :) I cant remember if viewports which are being disabled get cleared or not
19:53:38gevaertsJdGordon|: well this user is complaining that bits of the AA gets clipped off :)
19:53:46pixelmaAlexP: on the Sansas it's all Select - and thinking of the c200, "menu" is on the Power button, so holding that might not be such a great idea
19:54:04AlexPhuh, OK
19:54:13AlexPshows how often I use any of the Sansas
19:55:08LloreanAlexP: It might make sense to fix it on the Clip though, since the menu button isn't the power button.

20:18:05JdGordon|" hwcodec recording quality thing fixed" ?
20:18:47*gevaerts gets a suspicion
20:19:36pixelmathere are no rwps files in the source tree, the script automatically grabs wps files with the correct size specified for the remote and only makes them an rwps during packaging, that seems to be different for sbs (an rsbs file exists so there is already a difference - and it doesn't make it into the zip as it seems)
20:20:12pixelmaJdGordon|: well currently the classic_statusbar won't work completely in the hwcodec recording screen

20:20:45gevaertsHow do you make a wps eat a new line again? # at the end?

21:36:28JdGordon|nice and complicated :)
21:36:34JdGordon|surely there is a better way to do it?
21:36:57JdGordon|like using features.txt and a similar thing to the lang files
21:38:25shotofaddsI'm sure you're right ;-)
21:38:28JdGordon|actually, we should say bugger it and only ship cabbie for all targets, and a dead simple theme which doesnt need a different vairent for each
21:38:35JdGordon|everything else should come from the themes site
21:39:13gevaertsthen the theme site needs this logic
21:39:31gevaertsbut that one needs it anyway I guess
21:40:55JdGordon|well, it would almost be the same logic

22:22:14seaniB4dger: couldn't resist gently responding to @stomachion. I suspect it will make no difference, but still...
22:25:18kugelsaratoga: the code already contains a comment that is likely to be our problem?
22:25:20shotofaddsJdGordon|: why are some tokens #ifdef'd completely, but some just return NULL?
22:26:15JdGordon|if there is a reason it sholdnt be in the build at all it gets ifdefed :)

22:26:47JdGordon|if it would be useful or not really change anything on targets where its not used it should stay in so themes can be shared

22:27:46shotofaddseg. the touchscreen tokens, is it intentional that they exist for all builds?
22:28:28shotofaddsif that were the case, I shouldn't need a touchscreen variant of the .wps/.sbs at all
22:29:11JdGordon|you would anyway, because I could imagine alot of extra stuff in a touch variant
22:29:21JdGordon|but no, there is no real reason they cant be in all builds
22:29:58shotofaddsso there wouldn't be a problem adding a 'touch mode' icon to classic_statusbar?
22:30:09shotofaddssince it would be ignored anyway
22:30:39shotofadds(i'm assuming here that classic_statusbar would be the default - such an icon definitely needs to be in the default)

23:11:13 Join HellDragon [0] (
23:11:23TorneDoes anyone have an ondio?
23:11:46Tornei think the metronome bug I just fixed in r23658 applies to ondio too, and i made the same fix, but can't test it ;)
23:12:08LambdaCalculus37Torne: pixelma has an Ondio.
23:13:17Tornebuild expected to complete in 62m?
23:13:40gevaertsyour clock is wrong
23:13:54Torneno it isn't
23:14:02Tornewait yes it is
23:14:07Tornehow did that happen.
23:14:16*gevaerts is psychic
23:14:20Tornei have NTP on
23:14:21*B4gder whistles
23:14:35gevaertswrong timezone setting?
23:14:48Tornenope, forcing it to resync just fixed the clock.
23:15:04TorneOh, right. I expect both copies of windows changed the timezone.
23:15:19Torneanyway, if someone can try that on ondio that'd be good
23:15:24Torneit works on h120
23:15:33Torneand presumably on h300 as the keys are identical

23:33:03pixelmaTorne: metronome has button mapping problems since changing it to use pluginlib actions (and a more complicated tap and play handling) on the Ondio and the Player and c200. I don't think these small fixes help any (or fix one and introduce another bug with other actions or on other targets). You can test many of these mappings in a sim except some hardware specific limits like for X5 and M5 where button combos are electrically not possible
23:33:41Tornepixelma: The changes are specific to h1xx/3xx and ondio
23:33:48Torneso they can't break any other target
23:34:11Torneit's just fixing the mapping table used for those targets' special mappings so they pass onto the right context
23:34:23pixelmaI don't think it'll make it work completely though
23:34:28Torneit does on h120/h300
23:34:36Torneand i can't see it making ondio worse
23:35:38Tornei dont' ahve anything set up to build sims (though i clearly should)
23:36:06Torneif you wanna fix it more then, er, go ahead :)
23:36:33Torneit was a trivial change, i'm not looking to rework it
23:36:33pixelmamaybe it doen't make it worse but I have doubts you can use the plugin like you used to before pluginlib actions. The Ondio is very short of buttons, the plugin combines different contexts and you get "overlapping"
23:37:06Tornewell maybe, but i didn't do that, and i am not particularly motivated to work out a solution for a player i don't have access to..
23:37:21pixelmaI don't say you need to
23:37:23AlexPIf it is so broken, why not just revert it to before it was changed for actions?
23:37:40kugelpixelma: you could test if the latest pla rework patch makes it any better (I hope it's in sync stiill)
23:40:24pixelmaTorne: just that I doubt it'll make metronome work completely (and maybe I can't test if your change does anything at all in case some other button/action assignment has priority)
23:41:36Torneright. well, i just fixed the obvious bug :)
23:43:37pixelmaAlexP: I think the problem was that the same commit also introduced a different "UI" a bit like different "screens" for tapping and playing, and some ports didn't exist by then. And there was a different idea for a solution (using actions but per plugin not in a lib, that hasn't happened until now though :\ )

23:51:49AlexPOK - I've never used it myself :)
23:53:01pixelmayou need one button/action less which makes it easier on targets without many better but you always had sound. I'm not a 100% sure it was like that but think so currently
