#rockbox log for 2009-12-14

00:01:21dedchkdsk on Windows didn't find anything. I just tried a different player and it shows the same behaviour. (ipod 5.5 this one running 3.4)

00:11:36dedSo on both of my machines resume playback resumes the penultimate playlist, whereas I'm expecting it to play the last playlist played. But this seems much too obvious to be a bug? I don't understand. Is there something wrong with my experiment?

00:17:26mc2739ded: that sounds like a bug that should be added to the Flyspray bug tracker.
00:27:25dedOK. Does resume playback work by reading /.rockbox/most-recent.bmark?
00:29:49mc2739no, resume does not use .rockbox/most-recent.bmark
00:41:27kugel_resume doesn't involve bookmarks

00:53:18JdGordonarg... is there a better prefix for the radio screen tokens than 't'?
00:53:31JdGordont is already used for subline timeouts though
00:54:13JdGordonnot so nice :(
00:54:20JdGordonwhy the heck is the database using r?

01:00:23 Quit petur ("Zzzzz")
01:02:40dedmc2739: I am concerned that my "bug" is much too severe for it to be likely to be a bug in 3.4. Does anyone have time to try to replicate it? (set idle poweroff to 1min ; play track from album A ; play track from album B ; pause ; wait for idlepoweroff ; reboot ; resume playback ; what is playing?)
01:03:58JdGordonany ideas how to make the presets list avilable to the skin? I'm thinking it would be very nice to be able to show the freq/name of any of the loaded presets with a single token... something like %pn (preset name) would show the current one, %pn|1 would show the next ones name, %pm|-1 would show the previous, both wrapping so the token would always be legal
01:07:56JdGordonor try to copy the %d token? (i.e just get rid of the | and use 0 to specify "this preset"... eg %pn0 %pn1 %pn-1
01:11:52Lloreanded: Does it replicate if you manually power off, or does it only happen with idle power off?
01:12:37mc2739ded: I cannot reproduce your resume problem. This is on an e260v2, not version 3.4, but a recent build (r23933)
01:13:59JdGordonhow does this look for the initial set of radio tokens?
01:14:48JdGordon%pb (progressbar) will be fixed to work as the frequency bar in the fm screen
01:15:29kugel_maybe %i* should just act as fm info in the fm screen
01:16:11JdGordonthere isnt really a logical mapping for them
01:16:34JdGordonand I could imagine that would be very confusing anyway
01:24:48dedLlorean: good question, I'll try to properly pin down the conditions under which I'm seeing this behaviour.
01:27:49Lloreanded: If it's only with idle poweroff, could you add one more step into the test? After you pause, change one setting (set the volume higher, set repeat mode, do something, but don't browse or cause the disk to spin) and then let it idle poweroff. On next boot is the setting at the value it was changed to, or the original value? Basically I'm curious if somehow idle poweroff isn't writing everything necessary to disk. *do* be testing with the lates

01:39:05JdGordonis there any point adding the frequency step size to the skin tokens?
01:39:10JdGordonfor the radio
01:40:29LloreanI don't think it's very important.
01:49:35kugel_isnt that basically the same as the region which is available via St?
01:49:39kugel_or should be, that is
01:50:25JdGordonthe region number is.. the the freq's arnt
01:50:26 Quit GeekShadow ("The cake is a lie !")
01:50:40JdGordonand even if they were... adding doubles for certain tokens is not such a bad thing...
01:51:06JdGordonis this math correct to make sure preset is always between 0 and radio_preset_count()-1? "preset = (preset + radio_preset_count()) % radio_current_preset();"
01:51:54JdGordonas long as someone doesnt do something crazy like -10 thats should be safe?

02:04:16saratogai guess FS #10833 - Protect against division by zero in AAC (mp4) codec looks fine

02:04:58klapaucjuszsaratoga: yep. Zero-risk, and only triggered by incorrect files.
02:05:55kugel_JdGordon: you can't set the scan step specifically I think, only the region
02:06:19kugel_so why an extra tag for it?
02:06:23JdGordonthe step size changes with region
02:06:36JdGordonits probably a pointless token, which is why IO was asking :)
02:07:09kugel_if we wanted to let the user know the step, we wouldn't have the region setting
02:07:48klapaucjuszJdGordon: I prefer following it over Gmane.

02:08:21Lloreanklapaucjusz: If you want a patch you're involved with discussed there, you pretty much need to subscribe because it's incredibly unlikely a single message from you will be enough

02:09:10LloreanJdGordon: I disagree with the "if we wanted the user to know..." bit, but I do agree that a tag to show the step is basically useless.

11:59:44funmanIF_COP(, x) evaluates to nothing on single-core targets, so the thread will go on the only core: the CPU
12:00:01funmanon dual-core it will go on the specified core: here it is CPU as well

16:48:46ilamok so i have a h120 with a cf mod and it has been flashed, recently i have tried the auto install of 3.4 from 3.3 now the iriver wont play anything and keeps skipping tracks and flashing "codec failure"
16:48:55ilamwhat should i do?
16:51:32saratogacodec failure usually means you have a corrupted install and it can't load codec files
16:52:32ilami am willing to use 3.3 iinstead of 3.4 if it is to diffucult. But I cannot find the files for the 3.3 on the rockbox site. when i check the info on the player it still says its version 3.3, i fiqure it has something to do with flashing and a incompatabilty with the new 3.4

I have tried to install the new 3.4 but I cannot play any music, skips tracks, and cannot display any of the album art like it usually does. when i check the player it says its still version 3.3.

17:32:54topikare you trying to install manually?
17:33:22topiki don't think you need to reflash to upgrade, just extract the rockbox zip again to the device
17:33:25topikor use rbutil
17:35:29ivanrocks321I have tried both ways auto and by myself. and i get the same problem with 3.4. it works sometimes but when i turn the player off and on the problem comes back.
17:36:13ivanrocks321I have also tried reformatting the drive as well, then reinstalling
17:36:28pixelmaivanrocks321: if it is somewhat like flashing an Archos (I don't have an H100 so be careful with my advice) you need to make sure that the plugins and the running rockbox version are the same so that the flash plugin works. Unzip the new version fully - load rockbox.iriver (I guess) and then the flash plugin
17:37:31pixelmamaybe wait for someone else who can tell for sure, be a bit patient
17:37:35ivanrocks321how to i make sure about the plugin, sorry im a noob and i flashed this thing a while ago
17:37:42 Join bmbl [0] (n=Miranda@unaffiliated/bmbl)
17:38:18ivanrocks321yeah, your right i can wait but ill still check the plugin issue.
17:39:17pixelmaas I said if you unzip the new version and start by chosing rockbox.iriver (then codecs and other plugins will work too)
17:41:04pixelmabut if you don't flash the new version then the bootloader will start the old version if you turn the player off then on again and you'll get the codec failures because the main firmware version (the flashed one) doesn't match the newer codecs or plugins which are started from the disk

18:50:53domonokyivanrocks321: for flashed irivers, the update procedure would be: unzip 3.4, rolo into new binary. flash new binary to flash, reboot and all should be fine.
18:51:55ivanrocks321how do i rolo into new binary?
18:52:18domonokyjust "play" the rockbox.iriver file in .rockbox
18:53:08domonokyinstead of unzipping you could ofcourse also use rbutil (which does the same for rockbox installation)
18:53:30ivanrocks321ok, i have rolo'ed what is the next step

21:31:48archivatorQuestion - can mutexes be safely used to synchronize between 2 threads running on different cores or can they cause deadlocks?
21:32:10domonokyJdGordon|: i just see, its not stored in the db. :-/
21:32:40JdGordon|archivator: yes and yes
21:33:00archivatorJdGordon|: do you mind clarifying on the second part?
21:33:11domonokyarchivator: yes and no :-)
21:33:28JdGordon|mutexes are the standard way of doing thread/core syncronisation.. but done wrongly and they can cause deadlocks
21:33:48domonokymutexes are used to synchronise threads on cores, but if you use them wrong, they can deadlock ofcourse
21:34:03JdGordon|stop coyping me!
21:35:17archivatorHmm, I was thinking more rockbox-specific but I guess there aren't any specifics here.. My logic is simply wrong, it seems :(

21:46:03archivatorgevaerts: that's not the problem I'm tackling right now, and no, it's not a particularly good idea
21:46:20*gevaerts would also not do if(sonething){code;continue;}else{something else;}
21:46:25gevaertsWhy the else block?
21:46:39archivatorYou almost instantly hit a deadlock on dual core targets (with IF_COP(,COP))..
21:46:48archivatorgevaerts: remnants of an older version
21:47:32archivatorCode style is not what's bothering me. My inability to solve a simple problem, on the other hand..
21:48:01gevaertsit's not a problem. I noticed because it tricked me into believing you had a double unlock
21:48:08n1sgood code style can be helpful for finding problems
21:48:54gevaertsI would suspect that part of the problems might be due to cache issues
21:49:11archivatorgevaerts: and in fact, the comment in that if() is entirely wrong. You'll never get discontinuities anymore because fft_idx is reset on every new buffer. If you insert those discontinuities, you'll get horrible graphs.
21:50:47gevaertsIf input_thread_has_data (or similar variables) happens to be put in a register, you're stuck. It needs to be volatile at least, but it may also require a cache flush (ask PP experts)
21:51:23archivatorThat's something I hadn't considered.
21:52:10gevaertsthere might be other similar issues as well. I only know the basics :)
21:53:56n1sisn't there some kind of NOCACHE attr thingy?
21:55:07gevaertsyes, but I'm not sure if/how that works with unaligned addresses and/or other variables that happen to be nearby.

22:05:14***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
22:09:40gevaertsIf you really need them, they can be exported
22:10:26JdGordon|hang on.. how can the mp3 codec use them if they arnt being exported? or are they in the codec api and not the plugin api?
22:10:59n1suh, mpegplayer is multithreaded too i think and that's a plugin
22:11:46archivatormy bad, they are exported..
22:11:52n1sbut yeah, if you need something from core, just add it to the api
22:12:09gevaertsah yes, mpegplayer could be a useful example
22:12:36archivatorJdGordon|: that's what it looked like but I somehow missed them in plugin.h (or rather, grep missed them)
22:13:14n1smaybe Mr Someone should create a simple example plugin that demonstrates the multithread stuf
22:13:41archivatorI've looked into mpegplayer but only as far as thread creation is concerned (there's an undocumented flags argument to thread_create). I'll go look at the sync stuff no..

22:22:46 Join PaulJam [0] (
22:22:49saratogafor mp3 the cop and main CPU will have about the same load
22:23:09saratogaso i doubt you'll see a speed up, except maybe on slower formats that aren't multithreaded like AAC or APE
22:25:32saratogahow many FFTs are you doing a second anyway?
22:25:33archivatorsaratoga: Granted, the load will be very uneven (as I'm putting just the thread that *steals* PCM data on the COP and the FFT is still on the CPU) but I'm hoping to win a few cycles by having the actual drawing parallel to the data input.
22:25:47archivatorI haven't benchmarked it. Few.
22:25:48saratogathey should be quite fast
22:26:04archivatorThe problem is that I don't have enough data to do large FFTs
22:26:32archivatorI can only do 2048 samples as some targets don't have enough data in their peak buffers for a 4096-point transform :(
22:26:38saratogarockbox manages something like 5 1024pt FFTs/1MHz on PP for most of the not very fast implementations I've tried
22:26:47saratogaif you're using more then a couple mhz here you're probably not doing it right
22:27:52gevaertshm, maybe a stupid question, but is actually getting the PCM data from the COP a good idea?
22:28:02archivatorsaratoga: I think the FFT part is pretty straightforward - it's the waiting for data that really slows down the whole thing
22:28:20saratogathen do one FFT while waiting for next PCM batch
22:28:22 Quit Ypsy ("Oh noes! My ZNC obviously just shut down :(")
22:28:26saratogawaiting is the easiest thing to parallelize
22:28:35archivatorgevaerts: I didn't see any problems in my simple tests (read: no sync, just that thread running)
22:28:55gevaertsIt's put there by the main CPU, so I'd imagine that calling pcm_get_peak_buffer() from the COP might be a bit tricky
22:29:03saratogapassing data to the cop won't hurt the core but theres a decent chance you'll get corrupted data occasionally i think
22:29:20archivatorsaratoga: kiss fft does not have an inplace transform, meaning I would need yet another buffer to do what you're suggesting
22:29:21saratogaoh, well yeah calling core functions from the cop could be dangerous
22:29:45saratogause a better transform
22:29:59gevaertsI'd put the FFT on the COP. It probably has a better isolation
22:30:10gevaertsi.e. less interaction with core functions
22:30:24saratogaif the problem is just waiting for data to be ready, putting both threads on the main CPU seems like the best option
22:30:38saratogaits not like a sleeping thread benefits from running on COP
22:31:08saratogawhere did you find a non-inplace fft? all the rockbox ones are in place
22:31:25archivatorsaratoga: KISS FFT, as I said - not a rockbox one
22:31:42archivatorlibspeex still uses it, I think
22:32:59 Join Ypsy [0] (
22:34:49archivatorYou know what, you two are probably right. I should really just scrap what I'm doing and think about it for a second. So, the two threads remain on the same core. I need to hunt down a better FFT. Which would then require that I do my own post-transform transformations, since I'm using real data (and I don't really understand those). And then I can parallelize that..
22:35:03archivatorsounds like a plan (albeit a more difficult one :( )
22:36:53saratogathe real data optimization is a good idea, but its not necessary i think
22:37:09saratogaif you're only doing 5-10 FFTs a second the computation time should be negligible
22:37:10archivatorpad with 0s?
22:37:17saratogai would do that first
22:37:21Unhelpfularchivator: are you polling for fresh peak buffer data?

22:41:48archivatorsaratoga: that's what I'm essentially doing. I get the buffer, check if it's valid and if it's not, yield(). If it is, I use it.
22:41:57saratogaand it doesn't work?
22:42:02Unhelpfularchivator: if you want to assume that only one thing will ever do this at a time, why not just create a global event queue pointer for it, initialized to null, and a function to set it? then "wait for data" becomes "wait for event" and leverages existing code to do it quickly.
22:42:22archivatorIt does but it's slow. Very slow. You *might* get ~4-5 fps.
