good day

BAndiT1983
se6ast1an: added first part of screen description to the README, also started to separate descriptions in "general" and "buttons", as we need to take care of it very soon, not really happy with switch/case, as it produces too much code ans is error-prone
10:24
se6ast1an

hey panintended, how is it going?
15:49
panintended
Hello :)
15:50
BAndiT1983
hi
15:51
BAndiT1983
have you already fiddled around with the knob?
15:51
panintended
It's going alright, yourself? I played a bit with having a button inside the knob last night
15:52
BAndiT1983
am fine and motivated to continue development after forced break
15:52
BAndiT1983
and, has it workeD?
15:53
se6ast1an
panintended: you can also place a button next to the knob, can be simple at first
15:53
panintended
FYI: I have a work meeting that could overrun. I might not make it for tonight's weekly sync, or at least not in time
15:53
se6ast1an
right
15:53
panintended
it sort of worked
15:53
BAndiT1983
you can join anytime later, will be also away after meetng, around 7pm german time
15:54
BAndiT1983
but will return around 8:30pm if streets are not that crowded with cars
15:54
panintended
I noticed that to select an item, Button 5 should be pressed, correct?
15:55
panintended
So initally I tried tricking it into believing that Button 5 was pressed when pressing this "temporary" button
15:55
BAndiT1983
se6ast1an: what is the latest state there? as i'm still adjusting debug painter, cannot test at the moment
15:55
BAndiT1983
have you committed to your fork? if yes, then i can check it
15:56
panintended
then I noticed the E_1 and E_2 buttons (which should be related to the knob)
15:57
BAndiT1983
one of them will be cut away, as only one knob was left in newer versions of the hardware
15:58
panintended
No, I just have it locally. I'll try a couple of things and then push something
15:58
se6ast1an
<BAndiT1983> se6ast1an: what is the latest state there? <- state of what exactly?
15:59
se6ast1an
pressing the knob on the actual hardware works fine
15:59
se6ast1an
https://github.com/apertus-open-source-cinema/AXIOM-Remote/blob/dev/Firmware/UI/Screens/SettingsMenu.h#L290
15:59
se6ast1an
E_1 is responding to the knob press as intended
15:59
BAndiT1983
ah, button 5 is the same at the moment -> https://github.com/apertus-open-source-cinema/AXIOM-Remote/blob/45349601b42de35ee4c215ca98403fd4d8f442ab/Firmware/UI/Screens/SettingsMenu.h#L283
16:00
se6ast1an
yes that was a workaround before but can actually be removed as soon as the knob button is working in visualizer
16:00
BAndiT1983
at least in this dialog, when debug painter is fixed and widgets for menu created, then i would start to rework button handling, as switch/case is rather error-prone
16:10

16:27
BAndiT1983
se6ast1an: can you do me a favor the next time you flash your remote? could you please run following command: pic32prog -D -D -D AXIOM_Remote_Firmware.hex
16:27
BAndiT1983
still trying to find why my pickit3 is refusing to complete flashing, although it pushes quite some data over
16:27
se6ast1an
sure
16:27
BAndiT1983
and maybe you can also create a pastebin of the output
16:27
BAndiT1983
thanks in advance
16:31
se6ast1an
woah that will be a big log
16:33
BAndiT1983
i know, but need a comparison to see if my flash attempt is almost through or not
16:34
BAndiT1983
as it leaves my pickit in a state where i have to reset it, luckily it is connected to a USB hub and only a button press is required there
16:34
BAndiT1983
no, USB hub is not interfering with the pickit, ass i have same behavior when it is directly connected to my laptop
16:34
Bertl_oO
well, it would be a good idea to take a small .hex file for testing
16:34
BAndiT1983
good idea, will grab your lcd test
16:35
BAndiT1983
have to get around to test pickle or picberry, but it requires more setup on the odroid or rpi1
16:36
BAndiT1983
nope, still the same -> mz: timed out at finish, status = 040a
16:36
Bertl_oO
so if se6ast1an tests the same one, the debug output will be much less
16:37
se6ast1an
BAndiT1983: can you upload hex file?
16:39
BAndiT1983
http://vserver.13thfloor.at/Stuff/AXIOM/REMOTE/
16:39
BAndiT1983
lcd.hex
16:39
BAndiT1983
this is the line before -> mz: failed to program row flash memory at 1d000000, reply = 00-02-05-07-00
16:39
se6ast1an
perfect, thanks
16:41
BAndiT1983
what i don't see in my output, maybe it is not there or not found yet, is the baud rate
16:44
se6ast1an
https://pastebin.com/M352Eb6C
16:45
BAndiT1983
many thanks, will compare it now
16:45
se6ast1an
thats stderr, do you need stdout as well?
16:45
se6ast1an
https://pastebin.com/E7sMC8Cg
16:46
BAndiT1983
ah, indeed it's also helpful, by the way, am using such a command for output of both -> reset && pic32prog -D -D -D lcd.hex 2>&1 | tee lcd_flash_output.txt
16:46
BAndiT1983
reset just for terminal clearing
16:49
BAndiT1983
hm, interesting, one of things which looks suspicious is the difference in sending 00 on my side and FF on yours
16:49
BAndiT1983
as far as i remember PICs use FF as their cell default state
16:51
Bertl_oO
note, se6ast1an has a pickit2 clone IIRC
16:51
BAndiT1983
and mine is a clone of pcikit3
16:52
Bertl_oO
so quite different hardware
16:52
BAndiT1983
but IPE works flawlessly and flashes without any problems, but i would like to get rid of it and use simpler tools
16:52
Bertl_oO
just saying that it might not compare 1:1
16:52
BAndiT1983
yes, but the protocol should be the same, at least according to pic32prog maintainers
16:53
Bertl_oO
also double check your permissions on the device
16:54
BAndiT1983
working fine, same result with sudo, but i have modified udef to avoid sudo
16:56
se6ast1an
you could source a pickit2 and avoid the journey?
16:56
se6ast1an
meeting in 4 minutes
16:57
BAndiT1983
as IPE was working properly there is something off with pic32prog, and i would like to avoid to have more devices laying around which is only use for very specific tasks, it would be even easier for me to write the self-flashing bootloader
16:59
BAndiT1983
am not the only one with the problem -> http://retrobsd.org/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=37077&start=140#p41876

MEETING TIME!
17:00
se6ast1an
who is here?
17:00
se6ast1an
please pm me now to get put in reporting order!
17:00
Bertl_oO
is here ...
17:00
Bertl_oO
changed nick to: Bertl
17:00
BAndiT1983
am here
17:02
se6ast1an
BAndiT1983: would you do us the honor of starting the reporting phase please
17:02
BAndiT1983
ehm, just "BAndiT1983, go", would be enough ;)
17:02
BAndiT1983
alright, jsut a quick update from the remote side
17:02
BAndiT1983
last week we were fixing some errors and discussing how to structure the firmware
17:03
Bertl
.o( the Germans have no time for pleasantries :)
17:03
BAndiT1983
;)
17:04
BAndiT1983
next steps involve improvements for the visualiser, like knob button and also additional events like "button up" to be closer to the real board behavior
17:04
BAndiT1983
firmware itself will get more overhaul and menu screen will be refactored, so the menu itself is a reusable widget
17:05
BAndiT1983
additionally we will check how to make button processing simpler, as switch/case grows exponentially and is not the goal i would see for the future, but function pointers
17:05
BAndiT1983
should we ask metal_dent[m] and other contributors now, so the topic is not spread too much thorughout the meeting?
17:05
se6ast1an
that would be great, but not sure if metal_dent[m], is present?
17:06
BAndiT1983
ah, right, she was occupied, but maybe you and panintended can tell more
17:06
se6ast1an
he has the conference call still if I am not mistaken...
17:08
se6ast1an
I can do a very brief update of the remote in the meantime
17:08
se6ast1an
the lab workboard has been restructured: https://lab.apertus.org/project/view/18/
17:09
se6ast1an
lots of small and larger tasks have been added or restructured
17:09
se6ast1an
so everything feels a bit tidier now
17:09
se6ast1an
on github you might have noticed that the dev branch is now the main one and the old master has been removed
17:09
BAndiT1983
looks great, to be honest haven't looked at it for a couple of days
17:09
se6ast1an
that should make it a bit less confusing
17:10
se6ast1an
quite a number of git commits, also documentation in the repo directly
17:10
se6ast1an
thats it for the remote I guess
17:11
se6ast1an
anything else from you BAndiT1983?
17:11
BAndiT1983
not at the moment, was not able to do everything for 2 days, so will try to catch up this week more
17:11
se6ast1an
great
17:11
se6ast1an
small group today so I guess we will be quick
17:11
se6ast1an
Bertl: any news from your side?
17:12
Bertl
I guess so
17:13
Bertl
the last week was mostly spent on GSoC preparations on the hardware and software side as well as evaluating the applicants
17:13
Bertl
on the remote and remote remote, there has been some progres which can be seen here:
17:13
Bertl
http://vserver.13thfloor.at/Stuff/AXIOM/REMOTE/remote_shield_small.jpg
17:14
Bertl
this is the completed, but yet untested, remote control shield
17:14
Bertl
and here we have the bottom side of the new remove v0.14:
17:14
Bertl
http://vserver.13thfloor.at/Stuff/AXIOM/REMOTE/remote_v0.14_bottom.jpg
17:15
Bertl
as well as the rather unspectacular top side (so far): http://vserver.13thfloor.at/Stuff/AXIOM/REMOTE/remote_v0.14_top.jpg
17:15
Bertl
we are still waiting on the TFT screen, but I should be able to test the rest of the hardware in the next days
17:15
BAndiT1983
still 2 knob footprints?
17:20

last week I did some coding to add the button functionality for the sidebars but BAndiT1983 suggested some changes which I'm working on right now and hopefully will be done in the next few days..
17:24
metal_dent[m]
also I did some documentation stuff on the remote GUI
17:25

yes, there was no point changing that in the qick adaptation for the remote-remote
17:33
se6ast1an
everyone who got split away, see logs: http://irc.apertus.org/index.php?day=27&month=04&year=2020
17:33
Bertl
we could have simply removed it, but wouldn't have given any real advantage ...
17:33
Bertl
on the Ultra-96 front we are also still waiting on some parts for testing
17:33
Bertl
but the NVMe and the USB enclosure arrived an hour ago
17:33
Bertl
so we already started testing on a normal PC to establish a baseline
17:33
Bertl
on the PCB testing front there hasn't been much progress this week
17:34
Bertl
but I dug out all the required bits and pieces to redo the SD card tests on the Axiom Beta
17:34
Bertl
so we have direct conenction, long cable connection, our interceptor and also a logic probe suitable for inspecting the SD card I/O
17:34
Bertl
the applicants gave another presentation, this time about JTAG, which was quite informative I'd say
17:34
Bertl
I guess that's it from my side for this week
17:35
se6ast1an
what about the powerboard V1 testing progress?
17:35
se6ast1an
testing/assembly
17:35
Bertl
no change there, as no PCB was selected (pcb probe dependency)
17:37
se6ast1an
ok, would it make sense to manually these PCBs to remove the dependency?
17:37
se6ast1an
*manually test
17:37
Bertl
it's a lot of testing on the power board, so probably better spent on the probe project
17:37
se6ast1an
ok
17:38
se6ast1an
many thanks !
17:38
se6ast1an
vup & anuejn_ any news from your side?
17:38
se6ast1an
quick updates from me in addition to the mentioned remote stuff
17:39
se6ast1an
through our PCB contact I got access to another PCB manufacturer or actually to one we had contact with already
17:39
se6ast1an
but who said they don't have the material we need, the other contact confirmed they do have that material...
17:39
se6ast1an
I tried to install wechat which is the prefered communication method for chinese companies but after almost a week of trying to register an account gave up
17:40
se6ast1an
the account needs to be verified by "a friend" - meaning that friend has to already have a wechat account for several months, wechat wallet which depends on a chinese bank account
17:41
se6ast1an
and the qr code needs to be scanned within 5 minutes of registration otherwise it times out
17:41
se6ast1an
all attempts to do that failed, even people who would met the criterias get an error message that they cant verify me...
17:41
se6ast1an
so lots of fun :)

Hi everyone! I had a meeting and couldn't join the weekly sync, but I went through the channel logs to see what's everyone's status. On my side:
19:14
panintended
yesterday I looked at https://lab.apertus.org/T1184. I did some rough hack to get a button working next to the knob, but it's not in a state that can be merged. I'll revise it.
19:14
panintended
I'd like to continue tonight, but most likely it'll be tomorrow, as I had a long day today. Work has caught up with me -- instead of the other way around :)
20:02
se6ast1an
thanks for the update
20:02
se6ast1an
fingers crossed
