Ipod classic - rockbox - its happening. - Page 113

All is fine except when I try to build the database of tracks so that I can have random playback - Unfortunately it gets to about 1100 tracks (out of around 6000) and hangs and I have to reboot. It does this at the same point every time that I try so I guess that I have a corrupt music file. 

Is there any way of logging the progress so that I can find out which file is causing the issue?

 

 

Take a look at the rockbox bug section. You can take a look if your bug's already been listed.

I can't find a report of the bug, and it's still happening on the latest build (121018).

 

If I could pin it down to which file it is, I'd make a bug report, but I really don't think I have any useful information. It's all a bit chicken and egg...

post #1683 of 3181

I found it!

 

Went into the debug menu and enabled the metadata log, made it hang, rebooted and opened the log file. I then deleted the file last logged and retried it - All is now working fine :)

The offending file was a Steely Dan mp3 of "Night by night" - read into that what you will...

 

BTW, when build the database, moving the scroll wheel artificially ups the displayed file count. I just thought I'd share the observation.

 

Cheers.

Man that's pretty ballzy.very_evil_smiley.gif

I wanted to give it a week incase I received a defective unit from Amazon.

TBH, I did it because I was sure about a couple of things. I asked some questions in this thread before I bought my Classic, so I new I could return it to it's original FW if I needed to return it. I never even consired using it with the original FW, as it was only an option for me because I was sure I could Rockbox it...

I did not know that... I thought once it was flashed to emcore that was that. Nice to know.

Thanks.

Gave the opening post a small update. Thanks to Br777 for pasting it in so quickly.

 

Concerning Rockbox, I tried the test video for the video player from the Rockbox website. (here's the link).

Of course I use my Classic only for music, but it's cool to see such smooth video playback, I was surprised.

And the plugins, which I never bothered to look at, are great. For example the oscilloscope and the VU Meter.

It took me a while to install because my laptop wasn't working properly. That was frustrating.evil_smiley.gif

 

I used the stock Apple firmware for one song before I bought it just to make sure it worked (bought it used). Rockbox just seems so much cleaner!

And gives you an "elitist" feeling. I already had one of my employees ask me "what the heck did you do to your ipod".tongue.gif

I observed that 2, but think it isn't a bug actually. i think it's more like a 'visual effect' provoked by the refresh of the display due to wheel/button pressing...

 

By the way, database updating can take several minutes to complete, specially if you have several thousands files in your ipod to enjoy with Rockbox, like me ;-)...

Still working like a champ, and still slowly loading it up with music. I just let it update after ejecting it from my computer. And all is good. Very happy with my 240gb RockPod! L3000.gif

That's the mod with the thicker backcover right? Since that gives more space for the battery, did you also put in the bigger 850mAH battery? Probably gives a massive total playtime :-)

Yeah and I still have a custom 240gb thick back cover to put on my ipod. Just haven't got around to it yet. And yeah I put the high output battery that goes up to 1000mah. The playtime is pretty good. After listening to a regular 8 hour work day. It is usually in the low to mid 70 percentile left with the battery. I have two breaks, and that is the only time I stop playing my ipod. As soon as I start working, music goes back on. heh heh :D

I recently bought a simple LOD for my rockbox 7th gen ipod. And the sq seems to be much better when paired with my stereo receiver compared to the headphone out. I was sceptical about this before...
 

However I thoughed that I still would be able to change the (digital) volume with the clickwheel when music is going over the line out. However as it seems the volume cannot be adjusted with the clickwheel when using the lod.

 

I can only change the precut to change the volume, which is kinda inconvenient. However some people report to be able to change the volume over the lod with the clickwheel.

 

So I was wondering whether you guys know if there is a option, fix or older firmware that I can use; That will enable me to use the clickwheel to adjust the lod volume?
