With my newest build, there are 2 possible times to hear a click: a) when rockbox screen appears b) when you start playback.
Which click is not softer, a) or b)?
And if b), is it not softer if you wait some more seconds before you start the first song after a fresh boot? Thanks

@all: Was the pop at startup never a problem for you?

 

I haven't gotten the latest update yet (I run the one from March), but to me the click is right after I choose Rockbox at the mango/rockbox selection on startup, and it is very loud. I haven't really been bothered at all by any click when starting playback. I run DN-1000's.


Btw thanks for the rest of the changes, they look really good, I'll update later when I have more time.

Some more progress information:

In my next build I will include:

  • more accurate battery level :o
  • text viever, text editor and picture viewer parially working

 

And a negative information :(: The pixel line on the right side cannot be fixed. It is present system-wide (OF does the same, cut off 1 row left and bottom and leave 1 additional row from the lcd-on on the right side)

New custom CWM-flashable build for/with stock Firmware 1.5.0 including following new changes to the official repository:

  • For testing: Battery Level is much more accurate than before (Voltage measurement instead of badly configured %- output) 
    Accuracy is not proofed (copied from iriver h100 battery curve). I've only tried discharging my stock PISEN battery and found it quite good
    -> please help by reporting your experience with the new measuring system. Always mention what battery you are using
  • Working Plugins: text viewer, text editor and image viewer 
    -> please tell me if you have a suggestion for a better button mapping


List of all old modifications to xzcc's build 2014-06-30:

  • longpress of play button in menu works correctly
  • power-button when screen is off doesn't do back-action, only backlight-on (does not work if you just pressed something else before)
  • new dual-boot mechanism (Hold-Switch enables boot-selector, otherwise last player is booted)
  • Headphone output click -> connected on playback not at startup 
  • Battery level calculated from voltage
  • plugins: text viewer, text editor, image viewer

Thanks a lot for your work, up till now I basically ignored the battery indicator but I installed your latest version and I'll keep an eye on it and I'll report back, its the least I can do!

I think I like the dithering option.  I found a great analogy for it, how it basically brings out more detail with a little sacrifice to quality. (hope I defined that correctly)

 


Dithering made a world of difference to me. It took the "digital" edge off the music. The downside to it is that it introduces slight noise into the track (inaudible for the most part), but as you say it enhances the detail. I almost want to say it takes the smear off the music.

Normally I listen very irregularly so hadn't had the chance yet to get back to you about the battery indicator but I listened the whole day today, and battery levels seemed accurate all day (I'm using the originally provided battery) untill now which must be after about 8-9 hours, the indicater has been telling me that its empty for the last 1.5 hours but it's still going strong. Obviously this is no problem since I'd rather be surprised that it plays longer than it indicates than the other way around ;) 

 

Just a heads up since I don't think I'm ever going to use it but just out of curiosity I checked the cover flow application, and it seems to be working well except for the fact that no images show up!

 

Do you have any plans for future updates? I'm really enjoying the fact that my DAP gets better by the week!

Thanks for the feedback about the battery indicator. Some little optimizations are necesary, I've noticed too, but mine ran maybe 20minutes at 0%, so there are differences.

 

At the moment I will not provide any updates because I'm working on making the port an official port on the rockbox page. But later I will try to make most plugins work and try to do some basic modifications in the menu, wps and button behaviour. And I want to find out why gathering runtime data does not work and why times (backlight timeout etc,) are around double the time someone sets.

After that the port will be pretty much done. Of course there is some room to play around with DAC-settings or enable 24bit output (what headwhacker is trying to do). But this are minor things for me.

I guess when the basic things are fixed I will disable ADB on the player and just enjoy music :beyersmile:.

 

But to be honest, making the player work better is much more satisfying than just listening to music. 

 

edit: about cover-flow, i don't know, didn't try it. What I made working is the image viewer (jpg, png bmp and such). It also has a problem that it gives errors ("unsupported") for many images.

Cool. You can upload it somewhere and put the link here, for those who like it too.
By the way: for experimenting with theme modifications I recommend you to download the simulator for Cowon D2 on the official rockbox page (if didn't use that already)
post #1065 of 1294
yah i have the simulator but i did not really use it..it was raining like hell last night and i got bored so i did modify it..made some adjustments on the album art frame in WPS..i used photoshop to merge the original background to the wallpaper..same goes with the album art frame size and transparency..no major editing made..

sure i can upload the theme later..i'll pull some random wallpapers on the dx50 wallpaper thread..
