Title: Where to find "recent activity" for manual?
Post by: oayz on August 22, 2008, 05:11:11 PM
Well, of cause rockbox manual is our bible :-) and we're supposed to read in bed but still ... if I only want to see what new is in the manual, what's the best way to find out?

For current s/w release we have this:

http://www.rockbox.org/recent.shtml#svn

Is there something similar for manual?

The manual updates are in that list as well.

Well, here is the issue ... in the latest manual there are new config  options:

rewind duration on pause
pause on headphone unplug
disable autoresume if phones not present

but none of them seems to work on Sansa C240. OK, #2 and #3 probably do not work because Sansa doesn't sense headphone but #1 should work, shouldn't it?

So these new features from manual - are they getting there ahead of time (features from unofficial builts, patches etc)?

"rewind duration on pause" only applies to the pause when headphones are unplugged. So no, it shouldn't work on the c200.

I believe that list is universal - it's the same for all targets - and is a reference more for what the config.cfg file is capable of holding rather than what the player is capable of doing.  Features that your player supports should have a description in the main body of the manual.

I updated that list semi-recently because it was very out of date but didn't do the correct "opting" for what settigns are supported by which targets, I think it would be nice if it would be done so that the settings mentioned applied to that manual's target but it is not a priority for me.

Probably not the right place to continue ... (move it at your will).

Anyway, this sounds to be a nice universal feature not limited to headphones only. Listening audio books and podcasts I would appreciate it very much.

P.S. Thanks for the explanation etc
