What static noise? I don't hear any static noise, just quite good music out of my earphones (comparable to OF)! However I'm not using the latest build of CPCHAN, but one that is 3-4 days old!

€dit1: I am using US firmware as OF.

€dit2: There is no newer build than my one, but about which build did smeakim talkabout?? What "10AM MST build"??

The static noise is being caused by the missing FM chip in the EU versions, the line in channel for FM is still present but only transmits noise.

In the beginning it wasn't mentioned that the noise affects only EU firmware (which don't have FM Radio) that's why there was a small confusion.
But now LineIn1 is muted, so no more static.

hey just wanted to start off by saying THANKS!!! this is a way cool build but for some reason the scroll wheel doesn't respond when i am trying to use it in rockbox(scroll down-b scroll up-a). i thought it was the changes patch so i took of your build, applied the changes patch to the source from svn and the problem was gone :S what could be wrong here?

I have the EU Sansa, I don't hear static noise.

Is this the static 'whine' that occurs when the LCD backlight is on?, sounds like some sort of signal interference to me, they got around it with the original firmware so I'm sure the Rockbox dev's will find a way.

Yes, that's the static we're talking about.

And the Rockbox devs found a way

See the Changelog.

But I do have a radio chip in mine thats whats puzzling me, how is the radio chip connected to the backlight, if it is the interference from the line in connection to the radio chip shouldn't it be on all the time, regardless of the backlight?

Maybe the orginal firmware keeps the line in muted until the radio function is initialised, to get around the static.

Oh well, its worth a shot, I might try the latest daily build and see how it goes. If I get this SVN thing, the latest daily build should have the changes in it right?

EDIT: I'm a believer it works perfectly, the bit about the FM chip and the EU version threw me off a bit but the whine is gone and thats really the important thing.

Can't wait for the next build with all the bells and whistles, its amazing how far this thing as come, a few months ago we didn't even have sound, now all we need is the USB stack so we never have to boot into the OF again ,

It is an issue of how much gain is used on line1 in. Since the one in SVN was very high, it was picking up even the slightest electromagnetic interference.

Did you quit to support the ppl using your build and to keep this thread active, cpchan??? You aren't even posting in your thread anymore, which is sad.

Don't rage godess. He already said he's very busy these days. Just be a bit patient. I'm also waiting for his build.

I think he probaly has more important things to do right now, so just be patient, I want the next build too, but I guess good things take time...

New Essential Update available

This version should fix all audio problems. Plus radio support added. Please upgrade to this version before reporting more problems.

woot woot new update. 1st to download

And you did my request to move Playlists to the top of the Context Menu


EDIT: I see that you actually moved Playlist Catalog to the top. I realize that many people would use this to switch playlists, but I was thinking that "Playlist" should be on top, so that you can find songs inside the current playlist.

Also I played around with the FM Radio. It's pretty cool. Doesn't really work yet tho.




EDIT2: Everything seems to work fine. Nothing is broken

One very minor bug I noticed is that in the Shutdown menu, a couple of the items are duplicated
