mithroshenki: travelling, conferences and the crowd funding were all intense by themselves00:03
mithroI think I need a holiday00:03
shenkimithro: yeah, you've had a huge month or so!00:03
mithroI'm hoping the HDMI2USB stuff will reach stability soon00:08
mithroIt will be good to have something we can reliably say "you should use this"00:09
shenkiyeah! i'm super impressed with the amount of work you and the others have done00:10
shenkiit's very impressive00:10
mithroIt's mostly _florent_00:11

mithroWell, on the firmware anyway - I guess me and xfxf did the new website stuff00:12
mithroStill really need to get more then just us contributing00:19
mithroBus factor is too high for my liking00:20
mithroWell, I guess low, If you define it add the number of people that would need to be hit by a bus to kill the project00:21
shenkiim sure that others having hardware in their hands will help that00:22
shenkias will getting some confs skilled up in using your workflow00:22

mithroshenki: did you see the little Xilinx ISE output hack thing I created?00:41
mithroshenki: also need to find some people to do expansion boards for the opsis00:42
shenkimithro: i didn't see that01:04
puckHey, just wondering, what's the state of the firmware for the Opsis? Is it pretty much going to be plug and play when they ship?01:17
puck(actually, /me reads back a bit)01:18

CarlFKJay's whacky chrome book is still misbehaving02:24
CarlFKbut it is different (from the last update that fixed everything)02:25
CarlFKit is now correctly getting 720p EDID02:25

_florent_thanks CarlFK, strange behaviour, I'll try to find an explanation22:14
CarlFK_florent_: how bad would it be to "do"  video_mode after each EDID request?22:23
_florent_I would rather first try to understand what is going on exactly (since others video sources don't have this behaviour)22:26
CarlFK_florent_: well.. I am all for helping debug and make better, but I wold also like it more usable in 2 weeks.22:29
CarlFKdoes the reboot command reset in/out/encoder settings to default ?22:30
_florent_We will hack something for you for your conference, but in the long term we have to understand the weird behaviours we can have and fix that correctly22:31
_florent_no, it reboot the CPU22:32
CarlFK_florent_: hack, good.  and I'll keep working on getting that understood22:33
_florent_can you eventually create an issue with what we need to hack for it to be more usable? (this way I'll be able to prepare something for you before your conference)22:35
CarlFK_florent_: heck if I know ;)  do you see a problem with "video_mode X" (where X is just the current value) every time a machine connects, or does an EDID request?22:38
CarlFKI just know when I issue "video_mode 9" each time after connect it makes it work.22:38
CarlFKthat shouldn't cause any problems right ?22:39
_florent_no, but video_mode is slow since it erase the framebuffers and redraw the video pattern22:41
tpbTitle: HDMI2USB-misoc-firmware/processor.c at master · timvideos/HDMI2USB-misoc-firmware · GitHub (at
_florent_we have to undersand which action exactly make if work22:42
mithro_florent_: do we have a way to test the maximum read/write bandwidth on the Opsis / Atlys?22:50
CarlFK_florent_: idea: add "video_mode x" to the end of the boot up, then when a reboot is issued (including hitting the red button) it might fix it.22:53
CarlFKhooking it to boot would also keep it from interfering with testing22:54
mithroCarlFK: that doesn't make any sense - doing a "video_mode x" is already effectively done as part of the boot up procedure22:56
CarlFKmithro: k - I'll have to see if maybe reboot already fixes22:57
mithroCarlFK: I doubt it - the question that doesn't make sense is why doing "video_mode 9" has any effect22:57
CarlFK"video_mode is slow" this makes me think: the input is paused, or ignored, then when the "slow" is done, some sort of sync occurs23:03
