Selecting \setting{Resume Playback} will resume playback where it was when the \dap{} was shut off if there is a playlist to resume and will then end up in the WPS. Selecting \setting{Previous Screen} will make Rockbox start in the screen it was when the \dap{} was shut off. \subsection{Battery} Options relating to the \opt{archos}{batteries}\nopt{archos}{battery}% in the \dap. \begin{description} \item [Battery Capacity: ]This setting can be used to tell Rockbox what capacity (in mAh) of battery is being used inside it. 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,ipod3g}{\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 statusbar and WPS. Changing this setting has no effect what-so-ever on actual battery life. This setting only affects the accuracy of the battery life estimation as shown on screen. \opt{ipod}{This value is fairly meaningless in the \playerman{} family at present, and work is on-going into finding a better way to determine battery life.} \opt{ondiosp,ondiofm}{ \item [Battery Type: ]This setting tells Rockbox which type of battery that is currently used in the \dap{}. Select \setting{Alkaline} or \setting{NiMH} with \ButtonUp/\ButtonDown. } \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 the \setting{File Browser}. When the hard disk spins up to fill the audio buffer, it automatically spins down afterwards. \opt{SWCODEC}{ \item [Directory Cache: ]Rockbox has the ability to cache the contents of your drive 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 in the \setting{File Browser} 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{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. Settings are either \setting{Off} or \setting{1} to \setting{10} minutes in 1 minute steps. Then \setting{15,30,45} and \setting{60} minutes are available. \opt{HAVE_RTC_ALARM}{ \subsection{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 \setting{Start Screen} set to \setting{Resume Playback}, so that the \dap{} wakes up and immediately starts playing music. Use \ActionSettingInc{} and \ActionSettingDec to adjust the minutes setting, \ButtonLeft{} and \ButtonRight{} to adjust the HOURS. \ButtonPlay{} confirms the alarm and shuts your \dap{} down, and \opt{RECORDER_PAD}{\ButtonOff}\opt{IPOD_4G_PAD,IPOD_3G_PAD}{\ButtonMenu} cancels setting an alarm. If the \dap{} is turned on again before the alarm occurs, the alarm will be cancelled. Using this option disables the \setting{Sleep Timer}. } \subsection{Limits} This sub menu 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 \setting{File Browser}. You can configure the size to be between 50 and 10,000 files in steps of 50. 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,gigabeat,ipodvideo,iriver,iaudio,e200}{ \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} }
