04:42:14Andrew_SSansa Clip Zip owners, I just purchased one and want to know if anyone else has the same symptoms I'm hearing...
04:43:45Andrew_SWhen playing back audio of any sort (various formats, bitrates, sample rates tested so far), I hear random "click" or "tick" sounds.
04:44:48Andrew_SThe sounds are not periodic, sometimes come in clusters of several clicks within a second, sometimes are isolated by several seconds between.
04:46:57Andrew_SThose familiar with audacity could reproduce the sound of the symptom by taking any waveform, zoomed into show individual samples, and drag a random single sample way off toward the top or bottom of the track, away from its neighbors.
04:47:42Andrew_SSo the problem, I'm guessing, is manifesting as single sample playback errors by some part of the audio hardware.
04:49:23Andrew_SHeadphone's are secure. Doesn't appear a bitrate issue (which shouldn't matter anyway, if the codec and hardware are conforming). I can play these files on my PC with foobar2000 off the device and they sound normal.
04:50:14Andrew_SI also ran an md5sum across the versions copied to the Clip Zip, compared with the md5sum of my copies on my PC, and confirmed they transferred identically.
04:51:43Andrew_S"Click" symptom stops when I'm not playing any audio. Resumes with audio playback. Rare when using the FM receiver, but I've heard a few clicks there also.
04:54:04Andrew_SThe product was new out of the box last night, preloaded with 01.01.21A. Installed Rockbox 3.1.3 using the 01.01.20 firmware. Symptom manifest on either Rockbox or OF.
04:54:59Andrew_SI also tried reloading the original .21 firmware and verified it's there also. Seems to be a hardware fault. Anyone ever experienced this with their own Clip Zip's?

05:01:55 Quit Gallomimia (Remote host closed the connection)
05:04:20Andrew_SI'll just add for clarity: it appears these random "click" or "tick" sounds (what I suppose I'll call - single sample errors) are not related to the media file at all.
05:05:28Andrew_SIf I take a given media file, and start it playing, let it play on a while listening to the timing and noting the pattern of the clicks, then rewind to the start, the click pattern will be different each time.
05:06:01 Join Scall [0] (~chat@unaffiliated/scall)
05:07:23Andrew_SIt's a subtle sounding problem: the clicks tend to get masked by loud music like techno or rock, etc. But I listen to a lot of talk, ambient, and classical, and these clicks cannot be ignored there (quite distracting).
05:08:48Andrew_SI am about to presume the device was bad-out-of-box. But before I take it back into store, I want to sample other owners out there to get a sense whether I am likely to encounter this again if I request a simple exchange for a different Zip.
05:09:42Andrew_SThank you to anyone providing a response. I will be standing by.

11:54:19pamaurydamn, so it still shows as Media device ?
11:55:04SzczepancioAs media? No, just don't show anything.
11:55:07SzczepancioIf you mean that.
11:55:27pamauryah sorry, we are talking about which one ? the E380 ?
11:56:20SzczepancioBut I prefer the e470. This trick will work at it?
11:56:33pamauryok cool, can you go into the device manager and tell me how it is detected ? If I'm right it should be detected as HID device
11:57:02pamauryin recovery mod, it should be listed as a HID device

12:06:44pamaurycool perfect
12:07:04pamaurythat's good, it means this device could be ported quite easily
12:07:22SzczepancioMeh, it's sound fun, but...
12:07:31pamaurynow the next step is to extract the firmware out of it
12:09:09pamauryYou need a program I wrote, I haven't tested it under windows though, I'm not sure it compiles
12:09:25pamaurywait a minute
12:10:35pamauryok, apparently it should run under windows when compiled with MinGW. I can compiled it for you if you don't mind running a binary, otherwise you can try to compile it yourself
12:11:47SzczepancioGive a link.
12:12:07pamauryok, give a few minutes to run my windows box and compile this
12:14:30pamauryfu******* windows just crashed in my virtual box, that must be the first time in years
12:15:50pamaurysorry for the delay
12:16:25SzczepancioYep, I know that feeling.

12:17:10Szczepanciopamaury: I was using a Linux Mint with mate for 10 month's, and I really liked it. But I got windows 8 for birthday and I don't wanna move to another OS.
12:18:10pamauryNo problem, it's the same for me with Linux, now I just cannot use any other OS :-/
12:19:52pamauryOne day I should switch to Windows 7 in my box, XP is becoming a bit obsolete...
12:20:08SzczepancioXP will be unsupported, in 2014?
12:21:43pamauryyes I think they extended the deadline for one year
12:22:50pamauryI need more RAM to run Win7 in a box though, it's much more hungry than XP
12:23:00SzczepancioIn a Virtualbox, yep?
12:23:19SzczepancioHow much RAM do you have?
12:24:55SzczepancioMe too.
12:25:18Szczepancio2GB is enough to run Win7 in a virtual environment, I think.
12:25:37SzczepancioOr use Wine.
12:25:47pamauryWhen you run one VM + several thousands pages PDF of doc + build things, you quickly get out of memory or you swap hard, currently my XP only has 512MB in its box
12:26:12pamauryWine is not always ok when you actually want to test things under windows

12:33:12pamaurydamn, MSYS is soooooooooo slow

12:33:44SzczepancioUse cygwin instead :> But it cannot run at another device without lib(s).
12:34:21pamauryok compiled, let me try it on one of device to see if it actually works
12:34:31 Join Scall [0] (~chat@unaffiliated/scall)
12:35:07pamauryof course it detected it as MTP, I hate windows for this
12:37:17pamaurydid you manage to make the trick to detect MTP device as Mass Storage work ? You might need it on the E380 if it gets detected as MTP :-/
12:37:48SzczepancioIt will work's at e380 and e470, right?
12:37:54bluebrotherwhy are you using MSYS?
12:38:02SzczepancioTo compile program for windows.
12:38:37bluebrothernormally you don't need that. MinGW is sufficient.
12:38:50bluebrother(and msys is intended as environment to build MinGW)
12:39:02bluebrothermost programs can also be cross compiled on a Linux box :)
12:39:22pamauryyeah, I should cross compile these days
12:39:39pamaurySzczepancio: yes it should work on both, I'm trying it right now on my Sansa Fuze+
12:39:45bluebrothercompiling Rockbox Utility on Windows with MinGW is slower than using mxe on Linux :)
12:40:05bluebrotherand mxe is really nice to use these days
12:40:45pamauryis mxe packaged on debian or you need to download it ?
12:40:54Szczepanciopamaury: Can you post it again, because I lost a log?
12:41:09pamaurywith on earth is windows so slow ?
12:41:21SzczepancioThis method to make device in VMS/MSC mode or what it is called.
12:41:50pamaurygot into device manager, right click on device > Properties > Drive Tab > Upgrade driver > Don't use windows update > Advance method > Choose from list > Choose Mass Storage
12:42:16pamaury*Driver Tab
12:42:34pamaurythis is for windows XP but it should be the same on Windows 7 at least and 8 probably
12:43:07bluebrotherpamaury: no idea if Debian provides a package. Generally mxe is a set of Makefiles to build the toolchain.
12:43:15SzczepancioI think I did it.
12:43:21bluebrotherjust clone the repository and make <whatyouneed>
12:43:37pamauryyou're lucky, mine is still installing it...Let me upload the binary
12:43:56SzczepancioI did it at e470, so the binary will work at e470?
12:44:29SzczepancioOr first try it at e380?
12:44:40pamauryno, only on e370, for E470 you need a different binary
12:47:48SzczepancioTurn it into revoery mod or not, pamaury?
12:49:06pamaurynormal mode but mass storage otherwise it will not work
12:49:54pamauryto run it: in a console run "scsitool.exe -i D:", replace D: with the driver letter
12:50:39Szczepanciopamaury: What the e380 is named without recovery mod?
12:50:45SzczepancioI can't find it in device manager.
12:52:34pamauryno idea, it should be listed under storage device if the trick worked
12:52:50pamauryyou might need to push the "search for new device" button
12:52:57pamaury(in device manager)
12:53:15SzczepancioThe trick worked at e470.
12:54:05pamauryI'll build the binary for the E470 later, I think I need to fix it for windows before
12:54:18SzczepancioThank's :)

15:33:13pamauryyes, trivial mostly
15:33:29pamaurybecause the hardware will be recognised as mass storage and not mtp

15:59:14pamauryno, if you plug it normally it should list under storage or media device

16:02:54SzczepancioI think I will try your tool under e38x.
16:03:12SzczepancioWhen you will post a scsitools for e470?
16:06:34pamaurylater, I have stuff to do right now, if you run it from linux though I can post a binary right away
16:10:36Szczepanciopamaury: save this link somewhere
16:10:57SzczepancioIt's a scsitools -i from the e380.
16:13:06pamaurySzczepancio: perfect, now can you run:
16:13:06pamauryscsitool -x
16:13:31pamauryit should extract the firmware and save it in a file called, then upload the file if it worked
16:16:51pamaurySzczepancio: would you mind rerun scsitool -i -c ?
16:17:07pamaury(the -c option disable color and will remove all those weird characters)
16:21:42SzczepancioRight. I don't wanna to hack e380, but if this will help community I can do these thing's.

22:04:07gevaertsThe usual reply for request for a volume limiter is to use the EQ precut, I believe
22:04:27gevaertsHowever, that one doesn't do anything to the voice volume it seems
22:05:22gevaertsSo what is the *complete* answer to "I want a volume limiter!"?
22:06:01[Saint]"Use precut, and turn voice off" :)
22:06:14gevaertsIn this case, voice is essential
22:07:03[Saint]FWIW - I always *hated* the pre-cut argument to volume limitation, its fine if you already use the EQ, if not, it seems like overkill.
22:07:11[Saint]But, its all there is, so. :-S
22:07:27gevaertsespeak has a volume option it seems, do all TTS systems have that?
22:07:53[Saint]I believe so.
22:08:02gevaertsEasy to use? :)
22:08:17[Saint]RbUtil will let you mess with the gain when generating voice/talk files iirc.
22:09:23[Saint]I'm not really in a position to check that right now though.
22:09:30gevaertsI don't see that
22:09:35gevaertsWell, not for espeak anyway

22:10:23gevaertsThere's "volume" in the encoder settings
