DX50 has a real time clock but that clock appears to have no battery backup so the time gets reset to the Unix epoch when the device is turned on.

No. There's currently no manual for the application (Android) version. Any of the other manuals will get you started on operation and configuration, and the Rockbox forums should be able to pick up the rest.

Any update for other fonts support?

Reset back to original firmware128. Not checking again until playlists can actually be saved on there.

Does anybody know how to access files from external SD card via Rockbox? I can't seem to access them. Whenever i click on the Database, it shows building database.. 843 found.. but takes a long time and doesn't seem to complete. Probably that i should wait longer? Thanks for any inputs! :confused:

You have to tell RB through the settings which folders to scan. They are found in /mnt/external_sd.

 

Go to: Settings, General Settings, +Database, Select Directories to Scan and navigate to  /mnt/external_sd. press and hold on this folder. They are selected when you see a green arrow before each sub folder if any.

 

After you save the setting and initialized, you will be prompted to reboot for the scan to be effected.

 

RB is not the easiest thing to learn but gives you more options than most will ever use or need.

Go to Files -> Mnt -> external_sd. Took me a half hour to figure it out. I

 

Won't be able to test the coax output until Monday because the DAC I need to try it with is at work (yes, I actually do work at my workplace!) but I grabbed my SR-80 and popped them into the headphone output. Holy ****, this thing actually sounds like...music. No complaints about sound. Zero. None. No bass issues. No treble issues. No complaints about the internal headphone amp (I've never been a fan of it so far). And the SR-80's sound stupidly detailed and pleasing. I think I can put the firmware debate to rest for right now. This ****s on the sound of Ibasso's firmwares. All of them. No comparison. Even my favorite, 1.2.5, it makes it sound like the bloated mess it is. I'm taking in Patty Smyth's "Never Enough" album and I can hear all of the slick 80's rock production in all of its glory right now. I haven't experienced the "Wow!" factor like this in awhile now.

Coax works fine. Same here I enjoy how it sounds now more than any of the original FW.

What are you talking about? Playlist can be saved, edited and deleted. Read through any of the online RB manual to find out how to manage playlists.

 

I just created five playlist now. Something, I don't bother to do on the original FW.

Is it possible to have Chinese and Japanese fonts being included in the build?

Thanks for your detailed explanation! smily_headphones1.gif it works now! smily_headphones1.gif

Maybe a trick for date will be to use the modified date on a special file on sdcard.

ex:

on host :

echo `date` > /mnt/sdcard/.date

 

on dx50 when rockbox start:

read date file if present

 

this will have the advantage to get 'recently added' working ?

I've used rockbox a lot on DX50 and now trying advanced things :D

 

How to charge AND play music (dont unmount the external_sd FS) ?

Is it possible to store Playlists folder on the external SD ?

 

The more I use, The more I love it. ;)
