00:00:14gevaertsHowever, I'd recommend putting the wps on a pastebin site ( springs to mind) and linking to it, so people can have a look
00:01:17gevaertsIf you really can't wait for an answer here, I'd recommend using the forums instead

16:52:39Gear_I know about i2c but I'm wondering what the driver for the h300 series of players gives
16:53:46Gear_I saw an i2c driver in the list of rockbox things, and I'm wondering if this is just internal stuff or whether it's for some kind of expansion or what
16:54:34pamauryGear_: it is used by the tuner at least

16:59:19fs-bluebotGerrit review #758 at : Boost CPU before loading operations in textviewer by Avi Eisenberg
16:59:19pamauryit is very common to communicate with those using an external (or internal) i2c bus, sometimes the audio codec is also on the i2c bus bus for the iriver I think it's builtin
16:59:40pamauryGear_: power management unit, it is controller power and battery charging most likely
16:59:45pamauryikeboy: I will try
17:00:02pamaury*it is the controller for
17:00:13Gear_ok thanks, so it's just functions inside the device
17:00:58 Quit fragilematter (Quit: Leaving.)
17:01:04Gear_I hoped maybe it could be some kind of hack for expansions or something.
17:01:18 Quit Zagor (Quit: Clint excited)
17:01:38ikeboyThanks. I figured out the slowing down was because I hadn't realized textviewer called the tv_move_screen function for every scroll, so I moved the boosting to other places
17:01:42pamauryI don't know, I mean if you can solder most probably you can interface something on the i2c bus but I don't think there is an expansion port on the device no
17:02:16gevaertsGear_: some devices to that. I believe the gigabeat F has i2c pins on the dock connector
17:03:18*pamaury doesn't have a iriver h300 to check whether it has a custom connector or standard usb port
17:03:48Gear_every connector on it is standard
17:04:05Gear_except the remote, I'm not sure whether that's i2c or just mechanical switches
17:04:19Gear_or just something else
17:04:59pamaurythe code suggests it's not i2c, just a wire sending yes/no or analog value

21:27:56lebelliumdo you have a link?
21:29:45lebelliumI can have a look if you want

21:32:02gevaertsalexbobp: no, I mean, medieval is the best theme ever :)
21:32:07alexbobpI loved that theme because it cracked me up every time
21:32:10alexbobpoh I see
21:32:44lebelliumVery original and beautiful
21:32:48lebelliumbut not usable at all
21:33:02lebelliumit's like Alien
21:33:16lebelliumgood to see all what can be done with the theme engine

21:33:56alexbobpboxamp is jawdroppingly tacky and still perfectly usable
21:34:00alexbobpthe perfect combo
21:34:06lebelliumgevaerts: I know all your themes :) and the low rating is not from me, I promise
21:34:15gevaertsalexbobp: boxamp has a plain left to right progress bar, which means it's *exactly* the same as any other theme :)
21:34:34alexbobpgevaerts: other themes don't make me think of winamp and giggle
21:35:01gevaertsActually, are there any themes other than Wavy that draw transparent stuff over the album art?
21:35:43gevaertsI think that's the only fairly unique thing it does that doesn't require doing horrible things behind the scenes :)

21:42:12alexbobpaccording to the website 3.13 was released march 2013
21:42:13alexbobpso it should be that
21:42:23gevaertsYes, but that's not the current build...
21:42:31gevaertsWhich is why I asked
21:42:31alexbobpohhh ok I see
21:42:56alexbobpcrap, I'm afraid I left my player at home or I'd check
21:43:06alexbobpit's whatever the installer tool installs by default
21:43:20alexbobpI can tell you in 3 hours :P
21:43:40gevaertsIf it's 3.13, please also try a current build
21:44:10alexbobpwell I'll make sure I try that before filing a bug online
21:44:22alexbobpdid you manage to try it? what device are you on?
21:45:01gevaertsI can't reproduce it on ipod video with c64b59f-140304
21:45:57alexbobpfor what it's worth the bug doesn't trigger on rasher's latest build on android :P
21:46:00wodzgevaerts: do you know why in apps/codecs.c the beginning of ci struct is populated with NULLs?
21:46:24alexbobpgevaerts: ok I'll do that then. if it's not a version issue then I guess it's hardware dependent. and if it *is* a version issue that's even better since it means teh bug is gone
21:46:28gevaertswodz: no. I've never really looked at codec related code
21:46:40gevaertsalexbobp: I'm now trying 3.13
21:46:46alexbobpah ok, cool
21:46:51lebelliumalexbobp: boxamp fixed. You'll get it in a few minutes
21:46:57alexbobpoh sweet
21:47:11alexbobplebellium: sadly I won't have a fuze in a few minutes :P I keep poking on ebay
21:47:19alexbobpdo you think you can make that theme fit in 96x96? XD
21:47:22lebelliumthe best would be to contact the original author so that he uploads my fix
21:47:35alexbobpprobably a longshot
21:47:38lebelliumbut once again, no way to reach him
21:48:36lebelliumalexbobp: I'm not interested at all, sorry. That would take much time to adapt that 220x176 theme to 96x96. My work so far is here :) > lebellium%20Samsung-like&searchtype=name">
21:48:55alexbobplebellium: I didn't expect magic, was jut asking a silly question because it couldn't hurt ;)
21:49:31alexbobpwow, you've got a theme for samsung's design :D
21:49:59gevaertsalexbobp: ok, so with 3.13 I can switch crossfeed modes until I reach Meyer, and then I can't change it any further from the quickscreen. With a current build, it nicely rotates through all three options
21:50:24alexbobpgevaerts: ok then chances are the bug itself is fixed
21:50:36alexbobpwhat I saw on my clip was that if I use the *right* quickkey it does what you described, stopping at meyer
21:50:44alexbobpif I used the *left* quickkey it would crash at that point
21:50:59alexbobpand I have to imagine the crashing is related to the stopping
21:51:01gevaertsYes, I put it on left
21:51:15alexbobpcool, just making sure
21:51:24gevaertsMaybe related to b1209d47 ?
21:51:29alexbobpeither way it sounds probably fixed. I'll go ahead and check when I get home... mostly because I want it to work anyways
21:51:47alexbobpI like quick access to crossfeed for going between headphones and speakers
21:53:45gevaertsalexbobp: I have a suspicion that this is actually another symptom of FS #12889

22:24:10alexbobpthanks lebellium! now I'm going to blame you when I go splurge on a redundant mp3 player
22:24:50alexbobpI have a question about rockbox installation on sansa devices, since rockbox attaches the bootloader to the firmware image, does the rockbox install process also upgrade the OF to whatever version I provided at install?
22:27:34 Join Bice [0] (ae3bc24a@gateway/web/freenode/ip.
22:28:07BiceHello? Anyone around who could help me with a technical problem?
22:28:40alexbobpprobably! you better tell us what the problem is :P
22:28:58BiceOK, just checking to see if anyone was here before I started typing. :-)
22:29:32BiceI've got an iPod video (5th gen) that I put a 240 GB hard drive in. I've had RockBox on it for around three years now, and it's been working fine...up until today.
22:29:58BiceNow, for reasons unknown, it'll play the first song in a playlist, but when it gets to the end of that song the iPod "freezes".
22:30:21alexbobpok my first question is, is that 3 years without upgrading rockbox? :P
22:30:22BiceIt won't play the next song, it won't even show the title of the next song on the "now playing" screen, and none of the controls will work.
22:30:34gevaertsI'd recommend checking the filesystem
22:30:38 Quit kugel (Quit: leaving)
22:30:44BiceThe only way to "unfreeze" it is to hold down menu+select for 10 seconds to reboot the iPod.
22:31:24BiceI know I upgraded at some point (because it messed up some custom-made themes that I had put together), but that was a while back. At least a year, probably two.
22:31:53BiceWhat does checking the filesystem mean?
22:32:18BiceI should mention a couple things I did over the weekend that might have messed it up...
22:33:08BiceI finally finished converting my entire music collection over to MP3 and loading into the iPod, so I tried initializing the database. While that was running, it drained the battery and the iPod shut off in mid-update.
22:33:51BiceThe other potential problem is that I created a playlist of everything on the iPod, then when I tried to load it and play it, I overloaded the playlist buffer because it's more than 32,000 songs.
22:34:33alexbobpBice: what operating system do you use on your computer?
22:34:43alexbobpchecking the filesystem is something you'd do plugged into your computer
22:34:47BiceWindows Vista
22:35:02BiceI've got the iPod plugged into the computer right now.
22:35:04alexbobpok, I believe if you just right click on the drive when it shows up in my computer, there is a check option or something
22:35:36alexbobpand yeah actually the thing you said happened makes me think gevaerts is right.
22:35:43alexbobphaving the device lose power while writing can definitely cause filesystem corruption
22:36:33BiceOK, I right-clicked on the iPod drive, picked Properties, picked the Tools tab and there's an option to Check the volume for Errors. Is that what you're talking about?
22:37:56BiceI think I have to reboot - it came up with "Windows can't check the drive while its in use. Do you want to check for errors next time you start the computer?"
22:38:31alexbobpoh, hmm
22:38:42alexbobpdo you have that player open in any file browsers? or any of the files on it open?
22:39:03BiceHmmm, I seem to remember going through this with my old hard drive (the one I took out of the iPod to put the 240 GB one in) - I'll have to do some research. I think I can run chkdsk from a cmd window. Let me try that...
22:39:07alexbobpletting it check for errors at boot should work too, but it might be inconvenient to not use your comptuer during the check
22:39:33alexbobppersonally I'd say if you have a linux system, using that is safer :P
22:42:11BiceUnfortunately I don't do linux.
22:42:27gevaertsWindows should be just fine for checking FAT filesystems
22:42:41alexbobpyeah it should be fine
22:42:48alexbobpI was just saying *if*
22:43:53BiceWell, the chkdsk is running. It's gonna take a while, so I'm gonna go do some other stuff. I'll check back in a bit. Thanks for the help thus far.
22:44:05alexbobpok, hopefully that solves it
22:44:27alexbobpeither way you should still upgrade rockbox if you haven't upgraded since march 2013
