#rockbox log for 2010-05-18

00:00:15pixelma1.2.9 here too (also cygwin)
00:02:58Blue_Dudepixelma: I think we're getting hosed.
00:03:00funmanhm on clip+ the battery voltage doesn't change with charger plugged, but the % is lower: 100% unplugged, 96% plugged (and it is charging)
00:03:52CIA-5New commit by kugel (r26123): A bit further cleanup in system-sdl.c.
00:04:16funmanah i know why
00:05:05kugelfunman: the battery is full but the charging curve not up to date?
00:05:55funmanthe clipv1 curves aren't good
00:06:49funmanthe charging one at least
00:07:02funmanit wants to charge higher to what it can do

00:57:31ssorgatem_My fuzev2 seems to be dead
00:57:41ssorgatem_i just updated to latest svn
00:57:57ssorgatem_powered it off while connected to usb
00:57:57funmandid you change bootloader?
00:58:05ssorgatem_I powered it on
00:58:29ssorgatem_it showed for a moment a picture of a usb cable, then the screen has gone black
00:58:34saratogaif you didn't change the bootloader, then just hold power for a while until it reboots
00:58:38ssorgatem_I have the botloader version 2
00:58:52ssorgatem_but I have it since a few days now
00:58:58saratogaif you did change the bootloader and powered it off while connected, then that could have broken it
00:59:05ssorgatem_no, no
00:59:13saratogathen you're fine
00:59:20ssorgatem_IO just replaced the .rockbox folder
00:59:30funmanssorgatem_: remember, your fuze can't detect USB
00:59:45funmanit was the same for my clip+ before i change mkamsboot, instead of rebooting it would just power off
00:59:51ssorgatem_funman: Now it does
01:00:11ssorgatem_funman: it powers off when usb i connected
01:00:19ssorgatem_funman: it didn't until now
01:01:58funmanhold on let me give you a patch for mkamsboot
01:02:13ssorgatem_funman: is it normal that after connecting it to usb it won't turn on after holding the power button for a long time and then trying again?
01:02:19 Quit RankFrank ()
01:02:32funmantry holding the button longer (20 secs)
01:02:46ssorgatem_funman: yes, it works, but
01:02:58ssorgatem_what i don't understand is that
01:03:04ssorgatem_if it's been powered off
01:03:15funmanssorgatem_: the piece of code in mkamsboot can't detect USB (yet)
01:03:17ssorgatem_why doesn't it power on normaly?

01:33:13EpicHomeworkquestion: I have my music on a micro SD card, would it be possible to have the album covers on the device's memory?
01:33:38EpicHomeworkno? :(
01:34:08ssorgatem_EpicHomework: anyways, what sense would it make?
01:34:28EpicHomeworkI don't want to use the space on the micro SD with album covers
01:34:29funmansaratoga: it's possible to reduce the size of some tables in apps/plugins/mp3_encoder.c but i get crappy encoding, perhaps because of changed signs
01:35:25EpicHomeworkso there's absolutely no way it's possible?
01:36:55ssorgatem_EpicHomework: I can't see any way it would be possible
01:37:14EpicHomeworkso the album covers have to be in the same folder as the music?
01:37:25ssorgatem_I think so
01:37:37EpicHomeworkwell shoot
01:37:59 Quit martinst (Remote host closed the connection)
01:37:59EpicHomeworkthanks anyway, this is a GREAT project
01:38:23ssorgatem_anyways, compared to music, a few little jpgs aren't such a great waste of space, no?
01:38:43EpicHomeworkhow much space do you think about 250 jpgs would take?
01:38:55ssorgatem_very little
01:39:12ssorgatem_much less than 50 mp3
01:39:47EpicHomeworkI have an 8GB micro SD, already have 777 songs on it, plus around 1.5GB of data I need on it
01:40:44krazykitactually, it can be on the device itself
01:41:01krazykitsee appendix C of the manual
01:41:04EpicHomeworkthe album covers krazykit?
01:41:38krazykityep. C.3 shows exactly where you can place cover art
01:42:02EpicHomework"or in a fixed directory named /.rockbox/albumart/. "
01:42:06EpicHomeworkAWESOME! :D
01:42:32*ssorgatem_ should read the whole manual
01:42:51ssorgatem_funman: It doesn't work
01:42:58EpicHomeworkno worries, that's why there's not only one person here :P
01:43:01kisakyes, and memorize it so that you can quote revisions that noone can remember
01:43:05funmanssorgatem_: the delay is just longer then ?
01:43:25funmancan you try one last time with #0x200000 ?
01:43:29ssorgatem_funman: where should I notice it?
01:43:40funmanjust that it takes longer to boot
01:46:00ssorgatem_funman: it doesn't take longer to boot
01:46:18funmandid you run make -C dualboot ; make to rebuild mkamsboot ?
01:46:25ssorgatem_funman: but I think it takes longer to poweroff
01:46:36ssorgatem_funman: yes
01:48:03ssorgatem_funman: oh, wait
01:48:16ssorgatem_funman: I'm getting a warniing while compiling:

07:06:43S_a_i_n_tJdGordon; Which theme? Is this people asking for help re: FMS now?
07:07:36JdGordonjust one in the forums
07:08:38S_a_i_n_tBTW, I'm a little bit bugged by "Settings/Theme Settings/FM Radio" it just doesn't seem to fit right. "FM Radio Screen" perhaps is better?
07:08:50S_a_i_n_tNo, "FM Radio Skin" seems to work better IMO
07:09:33JdGordonyeah, but meh :)
07:09:42S_a_i_n_tjust "FM Radio" doesn't imply it is a theme option at's more like the title of the Radio itself.
07:10:43S_a_i_n_tSurely it's not *that* hard to change? I think "FM Radio Skin" works better, seeing as the .ext is FMS anyway.
07:10:49S_a_i_n_tJust my two cents worth ;)
07:11:27S_a_i_n_tSkin/Screen...either works.
07:13:06JdGordonwhat else could it be if it is under the theme settings?!
07:13:13JdGordonand lang changes are annoying to push through'
07:15:23pixelmaI agree with S_a_i_n_t though and said so while testing the patch. I'd suggest "FM Screen" or maybe "Radio Screen" just like there is a "While Playing Screen"
07:15:30S_a_i_n_tI realise it's in the theme settings, so it's kinda obvious that it's the themeing option for the Radio Screen, but I just seem to find that "FM Radio" sticks out of that menu like a sore thumb.
07:16:58*JdGordon doent care either way, if someone else does the change
07:18:26*S_a_i_n_t looks in pixelma's direction..."FM Radio Screen" then?
07:21:47pixelmamaybe just "Radio Screen" would be better since some D2s have DAB...
07:22:11*S_a_i_n_t can dig that.
07:22:12pixelmait probably isn't supported yet in Rockbox but
07:22:48JdGordonDAB is still over fm isnt it?
07:24:33*JdGordon retracts that staement
07:25:15JdGordonanyway... it would be really nice to have cabbie+fm for the next release which is 4 weeks away or so?
07:26:05pixelmaok, maybe the argument wasn't a very strong one but I just though "FM Radio Screen" sounded a bit more complicated than my two suggestions
07:27:31pixelmaJdGordon: what changes would need to be done outside emglish.lang to change the string (make it use a different one)?
07:28:13JdGordonif the LANG_ value doesnt change, nothing
07:30:20pixelmabut it should change for the radio screen so there still is a string "FM Radio" for the main menu and a different one "Radio Screen" in theme settings, I would think (or I'm misunderstanding what you mean with that)
07:31:20JdGordonthen yes, add a new string and then in menus/theme_settings.c just change that to the new one

13:11:03wodzI would like to ask for piece of advice. Currently I read ADC in its own ISR wich fires ~4 times per system tick. This can harm battery lifetime as it wakes up core from sleeping. Ideally I would like to call adc read routine in ticsk task but this is complicated by the fact that battery reading uses the same ADC but different channel. After channel switch I have to wait at least 4096 adc clock cycles to get valid data. It can be worked out by reading da
13:11:03wodzta and than changing channel at the end of tick routine but this will mean I introduce adc reading into button-hd200.c
13:11:26wodzthis will make code much harder to understand
13:12:19wodzso the question boils down to: how do I add something as tick task to be executed *before* button handling
13:20:12funmandoesn't seem possible now
13:20:30funmanbutton_init() is one of the first things called after kernel_init()
13:21:36funmancan't you just add a function call at the beginning of button_read() ?
13:23:02wodzI can but this is weird
13:25:49pixelmawodz: did you solve the performance issues on your Mpio now?
13:27:39wodzpixelma: no
13:28:19funmanwodz: you can't reduce adc rate ?
13:28:52wodzfunman: I can but strange things happen with buttons than
13:30:05funmanyou can choose to not use itnerrupt and use busy waiting also?
13:30:59wodzI can check if valid data flag is set by ADC but I can't use sleep() in kernel tick task
13:32:09funmanyou could add a thread for adc but i don't know if button reading would feel realtime
13:32:25funmaninstead of updating values from the ISR update them from a thread
13:32:31 Join lpereira [0] (
13:32:41funmanand sleep when you wait for valid data so other threads run
13:33:29amiconnImo you should just let a tick fire the adc, and let an adc isr do the rest, so that each tick all channels are read once
13:34:36amiconnAs long as the adc isr is short enough, the effect on battery runtime should be neglectible
13:35:54wodz this is ISR code
13:37:11funmangrey_scroll_left(1) crashes the clip & yh920 sims
13:39:29amiconnwodz: To me that looks like the adc is free running, i.e. each interrupt will make it start the next channel immediately
13:40:21 Join GeekShadow [0] (~Antoine@reactos/tester/GeekShadow)
13:40:29amiconnWhat I mean is: Have a tick task that starts conversion of channel 0. After those 4096 cycles the adc isr will fire, reading channel 0, then starting conversion of channel 1
13:41:02amiconnAt the next interrupt, read channel 1, then start channel 2, and again for channel 3
13:41:26amiconnAt the 4th interrupt, read channel 3 but do *not* start another conversion
13:41:30wodzand after 4 reads disable adc interrupt?
13:41:56amiconnThis way you'll read all 4 channels exactly once per tick
13:42:15amiconnThat means 4 adc interrupts per tick, but that should be ok
13:42:52wodzI'll try this route
13:43:18funmanhm now the sim works .. strange
13:43:46amiconnThe archoses do it that way, just the hardware is a little different (the sh7034 adc has 8 channels, and can do 4 conversions in parallel, so the it converts channels 0..3 in the first batch, channels 4..7 in the second one)

18:23:30Torneamiconn: I was pondering erasing iram at startup
18:23:56Torneto catch anything that might cause reboots/poweroffs without going through the poweroff function that clears iram
18:24:13Bz:P Can i manage the songs with amarok? I've had a grudge against itunes for years and refuse to use it :/
18:24:23TorneBz: you can do it with anything..
18:24:27vaguerantI just grabbed the latest Clip+ build with rockboy support; had a couple of minor Qs: any chance of disabling scaling (I know, tiny screen, but some games use smaller viewports and could be panned to display enough to be playable without scaling)?, and secondly does the emu reboot when ROMs crash or is that another issue−−when I hit Start or Select (volume up/down) Faceball 2000 just resets instead of beginning the game.
18:24:42Torneyou don't need to "manage" them at all, you can just stick files on there :)
18:25:43Bz:P I'm unfamiliar with the directory structure of an ipod, where do i stick the files? It was only yesterday when i picked it up and said to myself rockbox is going on this today. Prior to that i'd never really touched my ipod lol
18:25:49TorneBz: Anywhere
18:25:59TorneRockbox doesn't care in the slightest about the "ipod directory structure"
18:26:06Torneput the files anywhere you feel like, in any structure you want

20:57:04topikah, clever. only considered battery_bench for draining :)
20:57:09funmanalso it goes a bit faster at the end
20:57:20Tornesawdog: if it's just that, then the bootloader worked, but you have the wrong build

20:57:32TorneYou don't have a current build on there, then
20:57:41Torneare you using 3.5.1?
20:57:49Tornethat doesn't support large disks
20:57:58topikperhaps odd how it charges faster in the end
20:58:00Torneyou need to use the current development build from svn

21:01:52Tornebut that's independant of 3.6
21:02:06bertrikyou can't really tell how far lithium battery charging is by just looking at the voltage alone
21:02:22AlexPPersonally I'd quite like 3.6 pre-devcon so new exciting stuff can happen at devcon

21:02:53bertrikat some point (well before completion of the charge), the charger goes from constant-current into constant-voltage mode, and you'd have to monitor the charge current to get an idea of charge progress

22:21:25archivatorI have a hypothesis that needs confirming: for a few days now I've been struggling with a bizarre flite issue - on target, the system voices short strings but crashes when voicing longer strings, taking down the entire player. I am positive it's not an OOM issue and I'm inclined to think it has to do with the complete lack of yield()s in the flite codebase. Can that be the reason?
22:23:04jhMikeSTorne: My understanding is that amiconn was looking into the method to read it from the ROM or something. Mine pretty much needs it around 60.

23:23:10Tornebecausehe was getting the old bootloader's error message ;)
23:23:24Torneand i suspect he just really wasn't choosing hte right thing in rbutil
23:23:34Tornemaybe he unzipped the build manually instead
23:25:55stripwaxwhat i don't understand is, if there was clearly a forum thread for this (the advice and conversation he was having with you), why he decided to start off a separate email thread, mostly aimed at the same people he was already conversing with
23:26:25stripwaxe.g. saying what advice "they" had given him.
23:26:27Tornehe started in PM with me

23:26:42stripwaxreally weird and not helpful, though, to have that on the mailing list.
23:26:52Tornei told him off for that, gave him step by step instructions, and then told him if he had any more problems to post on the forum

23:27:23Tornehe's only got it working now by fluke, i imagine

23:55:05AlexPWhat is the problem with pictureflow?
23:55:16max242e.g. bor_ka reported he has issues with a freeze on his fuze v1 in one of fora, when building his database
23:55:33max242the issue with pictureflow is in the building of the thumbnail cache
23:55:35AlexPIf the database built fine and you can use it, then it is fine
23:55:44max242it freezes the fuze entirely

23:56:36max242my image files are all jpg
23:56:37*evilnick_B wonders if this is due to progressive scan jpgs being used?
23:57:34max242well, when i build the pictureflow cache when running r25298, there is no problem at all
23:57:43max242it started ever since r25299
