I missed a few posts in this topic and I am now (as usual) a bit confused.
I (unfortunately) do not like the samplerate displayed in the status bar.
It's too crowded and IMO it just doesn't belong there.
My intent for this topic was to make everything essential visible on the RLCD at the same time as well as making some room on the RLCD for future recording features (real time encoding options, thus the bitrate remark)
Please bear with my rant about this particular change:
Currently the samplerate only changes depending on digital input.
Mic input and Line input only record at 44.1kHz so there is no change or need for display there. (at least for now)
On digital input there is no Gain line displayed nor is the AGC line displayed.
Therefore in the only instance in which having input samplerate displayed is necessary there is plenty of room to display it on both the LCD and the RLCD
where it is being displayed now (under the Volume line)
The whole gist of this Suggestion topic was to get everything necessary displayed on the iRiver RLCDs at the same time.
Having the status bar displayed is a good idea.
Having the ability to change AGC from the WRS is also a good idea.
Being able to remove either the AGC line or the Statusbar would allow all of the (deemed) necessary WRS information to be displayed on the RLCD at the same time.
I have an idea that might be best.
We could leave everything as it was and we'll deal with fitting the encoding options on the RLCD when they show up. I can live with the scrolling. It's not that bad. I was just nit picking.
So since there's going to be scolling on the RLCD no matter what, why not have all three visible lines scroll? Mimicking the scroll behavior seen everywhere else?
Volume: 0 dB
Gain Left: -64.0 dB
Gain Right: -13.5 dB
(click DOWN)Gain Left: -64.0 dB
Gain Right: -13.5 dB
After that (if at all possible) we could implement a scrollbar on the left side on the lower portion of the screen (under the peakmeter) incase we end up with a lot of options. (doubtful)
A lastly (I'm really sorry about all of the ideas) I am of the opinion that the statusbar and the (if implemented) scrollbar statuses (sp?) should be retained from the main menu settings just for consistency across both the main WRS and the RWRS.
Mad respect to all at in the Rockbox mines digging away at this thing.
Assign me some trivial task that requires no programming.
