02:10:21GigaG11hey I need some help with my Clip Zip
02:10:24GigaG11on Rockbox
02:16:30GigaG11anybody here
02:19:20 Quit Wardo (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
02:22:45SuperBrainAKPlease read before speaking: will help you get help :)
02:32:33GigaG11Can Rockbox on the Clip Zip simultaneously play the FM radio while doing something else such as a plugin? That is a feature I really want.
02:34:57saratogait can audio, i'm not sure about FM
02:35:01redsteakrawyes it can
02:35:26redsteakrawI just tested it out, listening to fm radio while playing pong
02:36:49redsteakrawsnake and FM radio works just fine also.
02:37:26redsteakrawGigaG11 which plugin where you having in mind?
02:38:09GigaG11I really do not care, I just want to know how to quit out of the FM radio in a way that it will continue playing. The resume playing button played some audio on the player.
02:38:20GigaG11instead of the radio
02:39:18saratogawow the FM buttons on the sansa players make no sense
02:40:19the-kyleWhile in the FM radio, the power button should exit out to the menu. From there, the radio will continue to play, unless you begin playing audio or recording from the microphone. In either of those cases, it will switch.
02:40:51redsteakrawYou press the power button
02:40:54GigaG11Thank you!
02:40:56the-kyleThis is my experience on a Clip+, and doesn't necesarily work on other players.
02:41:02GigaG11It works
02:41:13GigaG11Can you give a basic list of button commands for Rockbox?
02:41:17GigaG11for the Clip Zip
02:41:37redsteakrawhome + select = screen lock
02:42:06saratogawhat do people think about FS #12616 ?
02:42:07fs-bluebot Clip+ Radio Keymap More Consistent (patches, unconfirmed)
02:42:54GigaG11I apologize, but what buttons are "home" and "select"
02:43:48redsteakrawthe button with the over arrow in the upper left right above the back button
02:44:03redsteakrawselect is the button in the center
02:44:51redsteakrawI hope that helps
02:45:50GigaG11I can't lock the screen using the back arrow button in the upper left along with the center. How do I do that?
02:46:24redsteakrawpress at the same time
02:47:30redsteakrawI think it only works while playing off the device and not in the radio mode

02:49:51saratogaits so bad now i can't imagine they do
02:50:55GigaG11redsteakraw - Yes, I got it at 6AM for Black Friday

04:58:50saratogai think it does that the first time you plug it into a windows machine
04:58:54saratogadue to some bug
05:00:32DoormatI have to replace my Clip Zip (it didn't handle falling off the bike at 100 kph) and I want something with bigger buttons and it MUST run rockbox. Was thinking about an ipod classic but I'm not sure if rockbox runs on them?
05:00:59saratogait does, see the front page
05:01:35DoormatI see the front page - but wasn't sure if 1g through 5.5g covered the classics you can buy now
05:02:09saratoga"Apple iPod Classic"
05:02:41DoormatAh - down under unusable ports. SOrry - I didn't see that.
05:05:05the-kyleCorrect me if I'm wrong, but does the Clip+ not have slightly larger buttons than the Clip Zip, but at the expense of a smaller screen? Also, the clip_ doesn't have a color screen; it's just some kind of blue or something I think.
05:05:22Tobias2362345523Tge clip+ appears frozen, all it shows on screen is a picture of a USB cord as well as the usual stuff at the top. Clock hasn't changed at all. Every time I reconnect it, I just get the device not recognized again
05:05:45saratogareboot it
05:05:51the-kyleOh sorry, I read you broke a Clip Zip.
05:06:15Tobias2362345523oh hey, that worked, turns out I just had to hold the button down a lot longer then I expected
05:06:18saratogathe-kyle: i don't know about the size exactly (sim can probably show you), but yes the zip is the only one with a color screen
05:06:50 Quit Tobias2362345523 (Quit: CGI:IRC)
05:07:09Doormatlol - trashed it pretty well ... it was brilliant while it lasted - sounded great. But trying to use the buttons with bike gloves on was a pain
05:08:07the-kyleSo I'm thinking it comes down to a trade-off between button size and screen readability. Either way, I'm not sure I'd trade an unstable port for an unusable port.
05:08:25DoormatI don't think the clip+ is that much larger. I thought the ipod, but don't much fancy partial battery recharge ... and trying to see what that actually means
05:09:23DoormatI couldn't care less about dual booting though - I wouldn't install itunes if apple paid me, so that's not a problem
05:10:10the-kyleThe body of the Clip+ is actually slightly smaller than the Clip Zip from what I read, but I also read that the buttons are smaller to accomodate the larger screen. I could be way off base though, since I am only *considering* a Clip Zip as my next purchase some time down the line, and have only read reviews so far.
05:11:37the-kyleAs for the iPod, I'm a bit concerned about the partial charge, but maybe someone here who writes code for that port could shed some light on what works and what doesn't.
05:12:35the-kyleDisclaimer: Also, I'm not a developer, only a happy user trying to help.
05:14:12DoormatI can't recommend the Zip highly enough - I'd buy another today except for the button issue. Mind you - the standard software on it is complete crap, but with rockbox it was brilliant
05:15:49the-kyleThe Zip is very likely to be my next Rockbox player, although I do my best to take good care of my Clip+. I definitely like the prices, the Zip and + are very close.
05:16:19DoormatPerhaps I need to think in a different direction: Can anyone recommend a player which is currently available, is stable with rockbox, and has large(largeish) buttons?
05:17:27the-kyleClip+ and Clip Zip appear to be the most widely available. Clip+ is considered stable, whereas Clip Zip is considered unstable, but as far as I know, that's just because of issues with the manual.
05:17:34saratogai think the Clips and iPods are the only players you can still buy new
05:17:57the-kyleOh yes, and the iPods.
05:18:01 Join eckoit [0] (~ryan@
05:18:31the-kyleI wasn't thinking of those, because the new iPod Classic is listed as unusable.
05:18:50saratogai mean the classic, the other ipods haven't been made in a very long time
05:20:21the-kyleThe Clip line is the only players I'm aware of that can be purchased new and also have Rockbox ports that are either stable or unstable.

05:21:55Doormat /sigh Yeah - that's about what I'd found. I really wanted to avoid apple but it seems the only viable option in the size stakes

05:23:10the-kyleIf purchasing an iPod, hopefully you can still find one that has a stable or unstable port. Unusable is quite a bit harder to install, and at least some important functions haven't yet been implemented.

05:32:55saratogawhat was missing on the classic charging, just detection of AC adapters?
05:35:41Doormatit doesn't actually say what's missing. In the table it says 'battery charging' partial - but the actual page for the port doesn't mention power at all

16:34:33Led_Zeppelinhi anyone here own a portable amp?
16:34:48Led_ZeppelinI was wondering if I should put the volume higher on my DAP or my amp?

16:50:36pamauryLed_Zeppelin: I'm not an expert but I woudl say on the amp because the point of having an exeternal amplifier is that it better amplifies
16:51:39Led_Zeppelinhmm, i read the opposite. I should do a line out (ie. 100% on the DAP) and use the amp to control the volume
16:54:01AlexPline out isn't the same as full volume on a headphones output
16:55:07Led_Zeppelin"DAP line-out (aka 100%) then adjust volume on the amplifier."
16:55:45AlexPa line out and a headphones output have different impedance for a start
16:58:45Led_Zeppelinon a separate topic. When using Sansa Clip+ with flac the battery goes out much faster. What does RB do special to conserve the battery?
17:00:39AlexPon the assumption that sana have the hardware docs and therefore know how to turn off unused hardware at least as well as we do, Rockbox has put a massive amount of time and effort into optimising the codecs
17:01:18Led_Zeppelinmakes sense. It isn't affecting the flac feed though right? like downsampling it ?
17:03:09AlexPflac feed through?
17:03:24AlexPI don't know what you mean by that
17:03:47Led_Zeppelinis the flac being compressed on the fly and giving a lower bit rate to conserve power?
17:03:57Led_Zeppelinbut I guess the compression/decompression would take up a lot more juice
17:05:39AlexPno, it is being decompressed...
17:05:39AlexPthat's how it is played
17:05:55Led_Zeppelinlove RB
17:06:05AlexPthat is how codecs work
17:07:02copperLed_Zeppelin: yes, DAP at 0dB and use the amp to control volume
17:07:26Led_Zeppelin0dB means highest possible, right?
17:07:33coppernot necessarily
17:07:39copperin Rockbox, the max is +6 dB
17:07:51Led_Zeppelinoh in RB i set it to 0db ?
17:07:57copperon the Clip+ and iPod Classic anyway
17:08:07copperLed_Zeppelin: yes

17:09:56copper"When using Sansa Clip+ with flac the battery goes out much faster." <−− with Rockbox, or the original firmware?
17:10:30copperwith the OF, that's a known issue, but with rockbox, you should get MORE battery life with FLAC, not less
17:11:20AlexPYeah, I think that's what he meant
17:11:34Led_Zeppelinok, set mine to 0Db

17:35:53Mircopper: i get less with flac and a TF card
17:36:23copperwith Rockbox?
17:36:40copperand a microsdhc card?
17:37:00copperthat's strange
17:37:07copperdid you run a battery benchmark?
17:37:26copperwhat was the other codec and what were the results?
17:37:43Miri only play flac
17:38:01copperthen how can you tell you get less battery life
17:38:03copperless than what
17:38:05Mirbut compaired to playing flac on the onboard memory i get much less
17:38:32coppernothing to do with FLAC then
17:38:57copperhow much time did you get on both?
17:39:29Mirand going through ablums ... compaired to the OF i go through 4 playthroughs of Dreaming Neon Black less on rockbox using a TF card than with the OF
17:40:00Mirits no big dea copper as my E260 gets 27 hours of battery life
17:40:08Mirbenchmarked btw ;)
17:40:39copperthat's yet something else
17:41:08copperfirst you talk about flac, then you talk about differences between internal flash and external flash, then you talk about the OF
17:42:14copperyou're all over the place
17:42:22Mirmeh never mind .. i was thinking of getting rid of the clip+

19:07:56gevaertsi.e. put the file on the player, and then boot the original firmware, which will then install it
19:17:16aradThanks gev but where do I put the original firmware? I don't have access to the root directory it appears. (I am unable to boot to the original Sansa firmware which is why I am trying to do this.)

19:19:54aradso it is basically bricked then?

19:22:01gevaertsNone that I can think of. Sounds like you have hardware issues then...

21:38:52wodzpamaury: the question is what does it mean 'blit' here? If this is interleaved with regular rgb updates then I don't know how to use hw converter.
21:39:31pamauryiirc there is a subtlety here: a call to lcd_blit_yuv implies a screen update, and you can even bypass the framebuffer if you want
