14 daysfiiom3k: Recording keymap adjustmentChristian Soffke1-2/+2
Long button presses to create a new file were in conflict with button presses to play/pause. Pressing SELECT is now used to create a new file (and start recording, if stopped), pressing PLAY/PAUSE will start or pause recording. Change-Id: If2e568b9b05500d73fd54b691262a64d1a0ff487

2023-05-26PictureFlow: Remove menu items for "Return" and "Clear Playlist"Christian Soffke1-2/+0
On all players, it should be possible to return from the Main Menu by pressing the Back or Menu key. Unless I'm missing something... "Clear Playlist" has hopefully become superfluous after the "Playing Next" context menu was added, which offers similar functionality. Change-Id: I741544978fb7936b8d5a34dfc656472e20c1737e
2023-05-26PictureFlow: Add ability to go to last albumChristian Soffke1-0/+1
After launch, PictureFlow always goes to the currently playing album, or to a selected album, if applicable. Which is probably a useful default, but not always wanted. You can now get back to the album you were looking at when PictureFlow was last closed, or when the sorting was last changed. Change-Id: Iba3e0d5388f6b49534d09fe0224b0dbfa65d5f1d
2023-05-26PictureFlow: Scroll through albums from track listChristian Soffke1-0/+1
This lets players that can't spare any keys scroll through albums without leaving the track listing first, which was only possible on the M3K before. Enter mode from Main Menu. While active, the gradient highlighting an album's selected track will not appear, and context menu options apply to the whole album instead of to a single track. Exit mode by pressing buttons for Select/Back, or by quitting PictureFlow. NB: Be sure to enable "Database in RAM" for a good experience, as the loading time for each album can become quite annoying otherwise. Change-Id: Id6c9a8cc49e4cfb2aea958610b95a19887f496b6

GNU grep 3.8 warns about "\#" when compiling. The "#" has to be escaped for Makefiles and shell, but it isn't special to grep so grep thinks it's an invalid escape sequence. Change-Id: Ieb2607d42b7daa1939ca0101b915ec0c7afd4298

2023-01-22Add perceptual volume adjustmentAidan MacDonald1-0/+17
The perceived loudness change of a change in volume depends on the listening volume: at high volumes a 1 dB increment is noticeable, but at low volumes a larger increment is needed to get a comparable change in loudness. Perceptual volume adjustment accounts for this fact, and divides the hardware volume range into a number of steps. Each step changes the dB volume by a variable amount, with most of the steps concentrated at higher volumes. This makes it possible to sweep over the entire hardware volume range quickly, without losing the ability to finely adjust the volume at normal listening levels. Use "Volume Adjustment Mode" in the system settings menu to select perceptual volume mode. The number of steps used is controlled by "Number of Volume Steps". (Number of steps has no effect in direct adjustment mode.) It's still possible to set a specific dB volume level from the sound settings menu when perceptual volume is enabled, and perceptual volume does not affect the volume displayed by themes.

2023-01-02Increase maximum files in directory limitAidan MacDonald1-8/+11
Increase the default limit to 5000 files for targets with at least 8 MiB of RAM (the vast majority). The upper limit of the setting is now 40,000 or 100,000 if you have at least 8 MiB or 16 MiB of RAM, respectively. Update the manual to mention that this setting can also impact the database browser. "Using the Database" already mentions it, but it's useful to say so in the setting's description. Change-Id: I6f204eec6cf2ccaea2af81d2fa287f92476eed4a
2023-01-02manuals: Update warning on max entries in file browser / playlistAidan MacDonald1-6/+8
These settings have a warning that increasing them will shorten the audio buffer. This is not very useful, because users might not know what "shortening the music buffer" implies. Since the size of the audio buffer is probably irrelevant for flash based storage, display the warning only for HDD-based targets, and explain what the drawbacks may be if the settings are set too high.

2022-12-03tagcache: add a setting for customizing the database pathAidan MacDonald1-0/+1
Add a new setting, database path: /path/to/folder to change where the database files are stored, which allows it to be shared by multiple builds when using multiboot. This avoids the need to maintain a separate copy of the database for each build. This setting can only be set from the config file; it has no menu option yet (due to lack of a GUI to pick the directory). Change-Id: Ide7b3ccdd84abb62b52f900421bd3d101773e093

2022-06-21usb: remove "Ask" USB Mode (FS#13317)Aidan MacDonald2-11/+14
USB ask mode is basically a footgun: it can't work on native targets and doesn't work reliably on hosted ones, and it continually produces a slow trickle of problems. FS#13317 gives a rundown of the issues. Removing the setting seems like the best solution for now, since a fix would be pretty involved. This partially reverts 60f581e8f5. The USB Mode setting is left in place so the option can be added back later in a non-buggy way. Change-Id: Ie01b28dd2ed95a31b509a7834d85bac8eb866098

2022-05-14apps: Change playlist context menu behavior, fix FS#13336Aidan MacDonald1-19/+16
Rename the "Clear List & Play" options to simply Play and Play Shuffled, and change their behavior slightly. Previously they would leave the current song playing, but now they will start playing the first song of the new playlist immediately. Shuffle options are now consistently hidden whenever a single file is selected. Fixes FS#13336 -- Play Shuffled is now always displayed where applicable, regardless of playback state.

Recording works now, although I'm sure there will be a few things that need fine-tuning. A major issue is that writing to the SD card creates noticable interference, which happens on the original firmware too but seems worse under Rockbox. (Since Rockbox waits until RAM fills up before writing data, the interference will only be heard on >50 MiB recordings.) Change-Id: I5561dd9668c3bdd34e92f34ef50848aef8c0b7eb
2022-01-22Option to switch off album art or to prefer file over embeddedChristian Soffke2-0/+12
Large embedded album art can cause pauses during playback or when skipping between tracks, especially on older devices, but embedded art is currently loaded even when separately stored smaller image files would be available. A workaround is to remove large album art from the metadata of files. This now adds a setting to either turn off loading of album art completely, or to prefer loading the album art from a separate image file and thus ignore the embedded versions.
