Thanks for looking into this. I totally understand about battery concerns. I am not positive if these would cause unnecessary drain on the battery or not.

No, these patches won't affect battery life. Now that I am happy with the sound and the menu structure of Rockbox, presenation is the next logical step.

That's good to know that they shouldn't affect battery life. If I recall, one of the patches is hard to find in flyspray. I don't have time now, but I will post the links to them all later if you need them.

Thanks.

Default Cue/Review / DB refresh

...Now I don't know whether to post to the main list, or to the cpchan branch thread!

IS there any way to get Cue/Review working? That is, like the original firmware, where you hear audio as you FF/RW? (Is there patch for this?)
I searched the Rockbox forum... and found an unanswered question!

Also, I copy files to the Sansa every day... Even though I have automatic DB refresh on, it doesn't seem to always refresh, unless I restart a few times...

I haven't been able to find an option for playing music while FF or REW. Submit a feature request.

Try doing it with a current build. If the problem persists, you should report it as a bug.

I might be getting confused with another feature (if Sandisk would ever send back my player I would know for sure...) but isn't there a way to force a DB refresh (Rockbox)?

Yes, you can do a manual update, but the auto mode should be fixed if the problem occurs in the current build.

...before I update...
How safe is it to restore a config file with a new build?

BTW, the autoupdate has been 'broken' for as long as I've tried Rockbox (the past couple weeks).

Very safe. I actually never delete my config file. I just install the new version of Rockbox on top.

Not my software. chrisjs162216, the author, have been Sansaless for a while- he is waiting for a RMA.

ok - so you just unzip the new version on top of the old...
I've been deleting the old first... then needing to copy over the font folder..

Yep, still have the DB refresh problem... I actually shutdown (not total shutdown) twice and it didn't refresh this time... I did it manually and shutdown... all was ok.

Yeah, I haven't been able to fool with my build due to being Sansaless. Sandisk (claims) they're shipping my new sansa back to me in a few hours, so I hope to get my build fixed by Monday

Thanks! Good luck on getting the Sansa!

Is that stuff going to be part of the main Rockbox? I think cpchan was saying that I should open a ticket on the rockbox website... which I did.

In your latest build the Sansa slows down again when I listen to music while browsing through the files/database/etc.

Hi!

I have a crash with your latest build rockbox when trying to play videos from my microSD card(There are just videos on it)
I think the "stackf..." error message is shown.I couldn't read it exactly
Also deleting the .cfg file did not help.
The booting time takes also very long compared to the former builds from you.
Now I switched back successfully to your build from yesterday(070530).
