Subject: Rockbox Digest -- May 17 2003
From: Daniel Stenberg -- Editor of Rockbox Digest (Rockbox-Digest_at_haxx.se)
Date: 2003-05-16


Another week, another digest.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: 15-may-2003
 * Mark Spooner thinks his music sounds better with the original Archos
   firmware[1].

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: 13-may-2003
 * Jörg C. Pochmann says he want his scrolling files names to start
   scrolling from end of filename[1], and a few other ideas followed...

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: 12-may-2003
 * Jean Boullier wrote up a help text[1] for people to be put on the
   Archos and read using Rockbox.
 * Gonz brought up the subject wondering if Rockbox could be made to
   sort the files to show playlists first[2].

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: 11-may-2003
 * Daniel Stenberg made another fix on the daily-build scripts in an
   attempt to make them work better even when the sourceforge CVS is
   this unreliable.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: 9-may-2003
 * Linus Nielsen Feltzing announced the removal of the 400 entries
   limit[1] in directories. The 10000 entries for playlists were also
   made customizable. The 400-limit was the last entry in the Feature
   Comparison Chart[2] Rockbox didn't beat Archos at.
 * Linus Nielsen Feltzing also made the code enable ATA STANDBY when
   going into USB mode, which seems to make the disk spin down when
   idle, when used on some operating systems...

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: 8-may-2003
 * Boris Maras brought up the good old subject of searching for songs[1]
   in Rockbox, and he's building this on top of the patch provided
   already by Stefan Meyer.
 * Josh asked the list about tools that would auto-sync songs when
   connected[2]. Ipod is said to have such a software and it is said to
   please users there. (My note: but then, ipod users like everything
   Apple says is good for them.)

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: 7-may-2003
 * It seems we haven't had the daily builds updated properly the last
   couple of days. The anonymous cvs update used in that process is
   notoriously shaky and fails pretty often, but now it seems to have
   tricked us for several days in a row...
 * Danan introduced his audio thumbnails[1] patch, that makes your
   Archos play a specific mp3 when you enter a directory, and thus
   improves "blind" maneuvering.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: 6-may-2003
 * Alan C mailed in about his battery voltage problems[1] that truly
   show weird behaviors on his unit. Is it a Rockbox issue[2]?

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: 5-may-2003
 * The Haxx guys[1] invites you to join us to a pub evening[2] in the
   Swedish capital Stockholm on June 5. (Inivitation link is in Swedish)
 * Learn how Dave Jones made it possible to make 3+ days recordings[3]
   with his Archos.

Date: 3-may-2003
 * Linus Nielsen Feltzing committed the first code for FM tuner[1]
   support on the FM Recorder.
