Sweet as brah! Thank you.
The new version can now be found on milkshake's app store:
The file should also appear on dl.openhandhelds.org once it's verified by ED B)
And, what's new in this version?
Here's the list:
- Fix premature idle shutdown after last track finished playing
- Update to latest rockbox SVN code
I found a bug. It seems that the nubs still control the cursor so when you move the cursor with the left nub the touchscreen becomes decalibrated and I have to restart Rockbox to fix the problem. Rockbox should disable nubs when launching just like Mupen64plus. I'm not sure how Mupen64plus achieves this but you can take a look at the PND: http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/pandora.cgi?0,0,0,0,5,382
I would also like to request that the left and right shoulders operate the same as left and right on the dpad and that the interface is fully operational with the keyboard (I don't like using the touchscreen in WPS). I have used Rockbox on an iPod and Sansa e200 in the past and recall that there are keys for the WPS functions that the Pandora can currently only access with the touchscreen (such as exiting WPS, viewing playlist and entering the context menu). I recommend using the X button for exiting and entering WPS, Y for viewing playlist and A for context menu (I am referring to the buttons right of the right nub not the keyboard).
Thanks for your work on Rockbox, its the best music player for Pandora at the moment!
Here is a better fix : http://blogs.distant-earth.com/wp/?p=293
Thanks for the hint. I've pushed out an updated rockbox pnd (rockbox-2011-05-25.pnd)
containing the proposed fix. It's already available on repo.openpandora.org.
Is it possible to specify a specific folder for Rockbox to builkd it's tag cache... It currently read every single file. I'd rather be able to set SD/music and just have these files as the tag cache.
Sweet~ Cheers for that.
- In options could we have the option to remove next track text, it's just a lot of text on the screen.
- Scrolling flickers when playing a track with filename longer than the screen
- If the filename contains "-" the looping of the track filename gets confusing where the start and end are since it uses "-" as well.
- Default directory links to SD Card 1 and 2 for now, other attached devices later
I've found a reasonable workaround is to add your music folder as the start location using the File browser context menu.
Additionally I've noticed some stuttering in playback recently... I may have messed with some settings, so maybe I broke it... I'll try resetting to default, etc.
New rockbox build is on repo.openpandora.org
- Update to rockbox 3.9 code base
Are the crackle-noises already fixed? I can't read it anywhere, yet when I excessively used Pandora/Rockbox in my holidays, I could not notice any distortions like before.
I noticed some crackle when I was sitting on the train this morning, but since I was listening to flac's of Plastikman, I'm not sure whether it is supposed to be like that
Nope, the crackle is there. It's why I don't use this app. A pity as the interface is great.
I thought the crackle was only there in the beginning of a song?
I had crackle when turning dithering on. I turned dithering off and now crackle.
I could be wrong, but I think I had the crackle when I had wifi turned on, and none when the wifi was turned off. I suspect, and I stress again I could be wrong, that the crackle could be associated with other background activity, such as the wifi looking for a connection. I've had no problem with Rockbox since ensuring that wifi was turned off before using it.
Try again with as little as possible running in the background and you may have better luck.
I accept that having to shut down everything on your Pandora before launching may be inconvenient, but personally I'm a big fan of Rockbox on the Pandora (and on my Sansa clip for that matter) because it seems to be only method by which I can play my m3u playlists.
I've had the crackling when Wi-Fi was on though.
Screw the crackling noise.
I want database to scan relative to /media/ instead of /...
Its a damn 2-line-fix and I already did it for the Android Version of Rockbox myself... but due to life being busy I didn't get to recompile it myself for Pandora yet. >_>
