The default is \opt{player,recorder}{1500mAh}% \opt{recorderv2fm}{2200mAh}% \opt{ondiosp,ondiofm}{1000mAh}% \opt{h1xx,h300}{1300mAh}% \opt{ipodmini}{400mAh (1G) or 630mAh (2G)}% \opt{ipodcolor}{700mAh}% \opt{ipodnano,ipodvideo,ipod4g}{\fixme{unknown}}% \opt{x5}{950mAh}% , which is the capacity value for the standard batteries shipped with the \dap. Rockbox uses this value to estimate remaining battery life for the status bar and WPS. Changing this setting has no effect whatsoever on actual battery life. This setting affects only the the accuracy of the battery life display on screen. \opt{ipod}{This value is fairly meaningless in the iPod family at present, and work is ongoing into finding a better way to determine battery life.} \opt{ondiosp,ondiofm}{ \item [Battery Type: ]This setting tells Rockbox wich type of battery that is currently used in the \dap. } \end{description} \nopt{ondiosp,ondiofm}{ \subsection{Disk} Options relating to the hard disk. \begin{description} \item [Disk Spindown: ]Rockbox has a timer that makes it spin down the hard disk after it is idle for a certain amount of time. This setting controls the amount of time between the last user activity and the time that the disk spins down. This idle time is only affected by user activity, like navigating through file browser. When the hard disk spins up to fill the audio buffer, it automatically spins down afterwards. \opt{recorder,h1xx,h300,x5}{ \item [Disk Poweroff: ]This setting controls whether the disk is powered off or only set to sleep'' when spun down. If this setting is set to \setting{YES}, the disk will power off. If set to \setting{NO}, the disk will enter sleep'' mode. Power off uses less power but takes slightly longer to spin-up. } \opt{SWCODEC}{ \item [Directory Cache: ]Rockbox has the ability to scan the contents of your drive in the background and save those contents to a cache in RAM. The \setting{Directory Cache} takes a small amount of memory away from Rockbox that would otherwise be used to buffer music, but it speeds up navigation by eliminating the slight pause between the time a navigation button is pressed and the time Rockbox responds. Turning this setting \setting{On} activates the directory cache, and turning it \setting{Off} deactivates the directory cache. \note{The first time you set the directory cache to \setting{On}, Rockbox will request a reboot of the \dap\ and upon restarting take a few minutes to scan the drive. Thereafter, the directory cache will work in the background.} } \end{description} } % \nopt{ondiosp,ondiofm} \opt{CONFIG_RTC}{ \subsection{Time and Date} Time related menu options. \begin{description} \item [Set Time/Date: ]Set current time and date. \item [Time Format: ] Choose 12 or 24 Hour clock. \end{description} } \subsection{Power Control} \begin{description} \item [\label{ref:idlepoweroff}Idle Poweroff: ]Rockbox can be configured to turn off power after the unit has been idle for a defined number of minutes. The \dap\ is idle when playback is stopped or paused. It is not idle while the USB or charger is connected, or while recording. \item [Sleep Timer: ]This option lets you power off your \dap\ after playing for a given time. \opt{recorderv2fm}{This setting is reset on boot. Using this option disables the \setting{Wake up alarm} (see below).} \opt{recorderv2fm}{ \item [Wake up alarm: ]This option turns the \dap\ off and then starts it up again at the specified time. This is most useful when combined with the \setting{resume} setting in the \setting{Playback Options} menu is set to \setting{Yes}, so that the \dap\ wakes up and immediately starts playing music. Use \ButtonLeft\ and \ButtonRight\ to adjust the minutes setting, \ButtonUp\ and \ButtonDown\ to adjust the HOURS. \ButtonPlay\ confirms the alarm and shuts your \dap\ down, and \ButtonOff cancels setting an alarm. If the \dap\ is turned on again before the alarm occurs, the alarm will be canceled. Using this option disables the \setting{Sleep Timer}(see above). } \end{description} \subsection{Limits} This submenu relates to limits in the Rockbox operating system. \begin{description} \item [Max files in dir browser: ]This setting controls the limit on the number of files that you can put in any particular directory in the file browser. You can configure the size to be between 50 and 10,000 files in steps of 50 files. The default is 400. Higher values will shorten the music buffer, so you should increase this setting \emph{only} if you have directories with a large number of files. \item [Max playlist size: ]This setting controls the maximum size of a playlist. The playlist size can be between 1,000 and 20,000 files, in steps of 1,000 (default is 10,000). Higher values will shorten the music buffer, so you should increase this setting \emph{only} if you have very large playlists. \end{description} \opt{player,recorder,recorderv2fm}{ \subsection{Car Adapter Mode} This option turns \setting{On} and \setting{Off} the car ignition auto stop function. \begin{description} \item [Car Adapter Mode: ]When using the \dap\ in a car, \setting{Car Adapter Mode} automatically stops playback on the \dap\ when power (i.e. from cigarette lighter power adapter) to the external DC in jack is turned off. If the \setting{Car Adapter Mode} is set to \setting{On}, Rockbox will pause playback when the external power off condition is detected. Rockbox will then shutdown the \dap\ after the length of time set in the \setting{Idle Poweroff} setting (see above). If power to the DC in jack is turned back on before the \emph{Idle Poweroff} function has shut the \dap\ off, playback will be resumed 5 seconds after the power is applied. This delay is to allow for the time while the car engine is being started. \end{description} Once the \dap\ is shut off either manually, or automatically with the \setting{Idle Poweroff} function, it must be powered up manually to resume playback. } \opt{player}{ \subsection{Line In} This option activates the line in port on \dap, which is off by default. This is useful for such applications as: \begin{itemize} \item Game boy $\rightarrow$ \dap $\rightarrow$ human \item laptop $\rightarrow$ \dap $\rightarrow$ human \item LAN party computer $\rightarrow$ \dap $\rightarrow$ human \end{itemize} }
