#milkymist IRC log for Saturday, 2011-10-01

wpwrakheh, bug: if the M1 is set to auto-switch through the patches and you press next/prev, the timer isn't reset00:01
wpwrakbtw, which function keys change the audio sensitivity ?00:19
xiangfuwpwrak, there is no function keys for the audio sensitivity for now.04:22
wpwraksigh :-(04:23
wpwrakthat's probably the control you need the most :)04:23
wpwraksomething else that would be nice for the "out of the box mode" would be to confirm keypresses. e.g., if you press the future "audio down" button, the overlay should give some visual indication, be it just a text message or, better, a bar04:25
wolfspraulxiangfu: we need to put some good stuff on the remote control's keys04:28
xiangfuyes. seems not very hard implement 'visual indication'04:28
wolfspraullike switching patches back and forth: we have that04:28
xiangfuin 'redering mode' we can use 'Volume: ||||||||||||||||||||||||||'  TEXT04:28
wolfspraulthen camera settings, brightness & contrast up and down04:28
xiangfuin 'gui mode' maybe a bar :)04:28
wolfspraulaudio sensitivity/volume04:28
wolfspraulwhat else? we find out over time04:28
wolfspraulbut definitely I think the remote is what we want to get right for that04:28
wolfspraulwe have 2x buttons there, right?04:29
wpwrakxiangfu: in gui mode, you could just pop up the audio settings window :)04:29
wolfspraulmaybe it would also be nice to have some on/off button ?04:29
wolfspraulfirst something to make the screen dark04:29
wolfspraulI think in quite a few real life use cases that's needed04:29
xiangfuwhat is '2x buttons'?04:29
wolfspraulbasically 'halt' the rendering04:30
wolfspraulI forgot04:30
wolfspraultwenty something04:30
xiangfuoff is easy.04:30
wolfspraulit would be interesting to power off/power on the unit from the remote, but that requires changes in the SoC (standby bitstream)04:30
xiangfuturn the milkymist on. needs Verlog HDL coding.04:30
wolfspraulwell, as always the devil is in the detail04:30
wolfspraulyes sure04:30
wolfspraulI'm just listing a few early thoughts. real life use will tell us what is really important ;-)04:31
wpwrakand it gets worse when we generalize the IR control04:31
xiangfuwolfspraul, I will try to look into the remote control code.04:31
wolfspraulaudio sensitivity/volume -> I can see how that is important04:31
wpwrakbut then, perhaps there could be a "standby" mode that is implemented within flickernoise04:31
wolfspraulmaybe also switching between mic and line-in ?04:31
wolfspraulor some way to enable/disable mic & line-in04:32
wpwrak(mic/line) or just have the two, like in the gui04:32
wpwrakmute = minimum volume - 1 ;-)04:32
lekernelno, no OSD _at all_ when rendering06:53
lekernelslashdot is down?08:27
lekernelseems unreachable from alicedsl but works from sweden08:44
lekernelwpwrak, there's no abort() in the demo firmware09:28
lekernelhmm and no calloc() either09:32
lekernelmh, and why do you need dynamic memory at all?09:35
lekernelit doesn't even make sense with global variables... can't you put sc and sc->regs on the stack?09:35
lekernelthis way it'd even become thread-safe09:36

wpwraklekernel: oh, how do i test that demo fw ? i only tried with "real" flickernoise11:59
wpwraklekernel: (osd when rendering) i mean in "out of the box mode". like the titles. turn it off for serious use.12:00
wpwrak(malloc vs. stack) that's an option. allocating huge amounts of memory on the stack is generally less portable, but it that's what works better on FN, i'll change it12:02
cdehello !14:38
cdewolfspraul: how are you today?14:49
wolfspraulcde: thanks for asking!14:56
wolfspraulvery good. how about you?14:56
cdeI'm quite fine, thanks. The weather is really superb here in Paris15:09
cdeI just went biking in the forest nearby, it was splendid15:09
wolfspraulsame here. splendid weather and blue sky in Beijing15:10
wolfspraulcalling it a day now...15:10
cdecool :) have fun!15:11
lekernela few kB is not huge17:52
