mithroshenki: I brought my miniSpartan6+ into work today. Will have a play and see if I can repo.00:25
mithroshenki: Can you delete some of the branches in your repository that you don't need?00:26
shenkimithro: ok00:40
shenkimithro: you want the ms6 branch00:40
mithroshenki: I'm think going to rebase your ms6 stuff onto master without the or1k stuff so we can merge that sooner?00:41
shenkiif you want00:41
shenkihang on, give me a sec00:41
shenkii havne't pushed the latest00:41
shenkimithro: ok, done https://github.com/shenki/HDMI2USB-misoc-firmware/branches01:10

shenkimithro: when are you going to merge the or1k patches?01:11
shenkimithro: some of the cleanups there are good01:14
mithroshenki: no idea01:33
mithroshenki: also have to merge the opsis-timing branch too01:33
shenkimithro: ok. i will buy a power supply for my opsis today, and test the branches on there tonight01:35
shenkimithro: if the hdmi functioanltiy still works, I suggest we merge them in?01:36
shenkino need to waste your cycles maintaining a branch01:36
mithroshenki: That is a good question, I haven't really done any extensive testing01:36

cr1901_modernmithro: pong (just woke up)07:45
mithrocr1901_modern: trying to get the spi flash working on the minispartan6+07:49
mithrocr1901_modern: I'm assuming you haven't done anything with that so far?07:49
cr1901_modernYou mean in terms of a the CPU using it as the ROM address space, or just "storing the bitstream"07:50
mithrocr1901_modern: as in using it for storage, yes07:50
cr1901_modernNo, I didn't get that far yet. A bit curious it doesn't work "out of the box" though07:50
mithrocr1901_modern: have you had any experiance with it before?07:55
mithroat the moment I'm just having trouble getting it to read anything resembling the stuff I've used openocd to write too07:55
mithroooooo - I think it almost just worked on the Atlys....07:57
cr1901_modernWell, I have gotten a bitstream to successfully write to the flash.07:57
cr1901_modernmithro: I do remember having some trouble initially writing to the device at all. Right now, my minispartan6+'s flash has the Migen blinky code on it.08:00
_florent_mithro: if you need help with the SPI flash I can have a look (just need to know what code you are testing)09:08
mithroWell, I've gotten the spi flash to work on the Atlys board12:06
mithroTurns out that I was putting the SPI flash and LiteEth at the same memory location on that board12:08
mithro_florent_: Why do you do "        self.add_memory_region("ethmac", self.mem_map["ethmac"]+self.shadow_base, 0x2000)" ?12:10

CarlFKmithro: I am going to try vocto with atlys and opsis - lightning talks at ps1 in 11 hours13:56
_florent_mithro: I'm doing the  self.add_memory_region just to define the region. It's probably only used to generate the mem.h13:56

shenkieww, hat didn't paste so well14:33
shenkisorry14:33
mithroshenki: who is that with?14:35
*** rohitksingh has joined #timvideos14:36
mithroThe firmware freezes after the version info is output. But I think that is because of something in the C code14:37
shenkimithro: uniti14:37
_florent_mithro, I'm sure I used to know but I don't remember now14:37
shenkimithro: wireless (wifi) isp in adelaide14:37
mithro_florent_: ha :-P14:38
mithroWhat is with the shadow stuff? Is that too avoid the l2 cache or something?14:39
mithroshenki: I didn't test serialboot14:40
_florent_sb0: do you remember why we have the "|  0x80000000" when declaring the memory_region?14:40
mithroshenki: but it's kind of nice that you can just flash new firmware without rebuilding the gateware14:42
*** CarlFK has quit IRC14:43
cr1901_modernIncidentally, we definitely access CSR peripherals in the shadow region instead of their real addresses...14:44
mithroNext thing to get working on the minispartan is the HDMI output14:46
shenkimithro: nice14:47
shenkiwell, for me it's getting some more complicated software booting14:47
shenkilike the kenrel14:47
shenkimithro: how much flash do we have?14:47
mithroI put it in a comment somewhere14:48
cr1901_modernAccording to _florent_, the minispartan's SDRAM speed is bad, so we're only gonna get like 640x480 HDMI output14:48
*** CarlFK has joined #timvideos14:48
*** ChanServ sets mode: +v CarlFK14:48
_florent_maybe more with YCBCR 4:2:214:48
cr1901_modern_florent_: Did you do theoretical calculations?14:49
mithroI wonder if we can over clock :-P14:49
cr1901_modernProbably...14:49
_florent_what the frequency of the ms6 SoC?14:50
cr1901_modern80 MHz, but I meant simply at the max speed the SDRAM supports, which is 133MHz?14:51
mithro80 MHz14:51
mithroHaving a 640*480 development device that fits in your pocket ain't bad14:52
mithroshenki: pretty sure you should be able to fit a Linux kernel and small initrd14:53
mithroEnough to get the SD card up and running14:53
_florent_OK so we should have around 1Gbps of bandwidth on the SDRAM14:53
shenkimithro: k14:53
_florent_[email protected] is 442Mbps with ycbcr4:2:214:53
cr1901_modern640*480 is enough for anything I want to do with HDMI (old CRT emulation)14:54
_florent_so it should be enough for in and out14:54
mithroDoes uboot add anything?14:54
shenkino14:54
* shenki us currently doing a uboot upstream for the aspeed14:54
shenkiour "uboot" is the bios14:55
sb0_florent_, to disable cache14:55
_florent_sb0: ok thanks!14:55
mithro_florent_: any reason not to do 420 rather then 422?14:57
mithrosb0: from what I can see - with the spi flash you could execute directly from it  (but probably quite slowly?) and that is what happens when using the BIOS in spi flash?14:59
mithroshenki: this was only the lm32 not the or1k btw15:04
mithroAnyway bed time15:05
mithroGood night everyone.15:05

sb0mithro, yes. but there is the cpu cache that makes it less slow.16:09
xfxfmithro: on Mar 16, 2016 you put a post up on hdmi2usb.tv that said "A further backer update will be released within 30 days with more information."16:10
xfxfhas this been done?  if not, a reminder :)16:10
xfxf(re the HDMI cable/amp issue)16:10
CarlFKxfxf: hey! ... any idea how to load updated firmware into the  Opsis?16:13
xfxfnot something i've done since LCA, sorry16:13
CarlFKdid you even do it?16:13
xfxfi did, yeah16:13
xfxfi even patched the firmware16:13
xfxfone or two bytes of change16:13
xfxfwoo16:13
CarlFKI never even watched.  any idea where I should look for clues?16:13
xfxfi don't recall off the top of my head16:14
CarlFKyeah, I want that patch16:14
xfxfoh the gamma one?16:14
CarlFKyes16:14
xfxfright16:14
CarlFKwell, i want to know how to put it on the Opsis16:14
xfxfoh, i was going to say, i was going to just look at the bash history on the laptop i did it on16:14
xfxfbut i no longer own it16:14
xfxf(i sold it and bought an i7 thinkpad yoga)16:14
xfxfi'm meant to be recording an event tomorrow so it's something i am going to be looking at in the next ~16 hrs16:15
xfxfbut about to go to bed (2am here)16:15
CarlFKI have 3 or 4 tabs open around here that mithro pointed me at ... but none looked very.. useful ;/16:15
xfxfi remember you had to put the thing into a different mode to flash it16:15
CarlFKlol -  am going to be doing some hackerspace lightning talks in 8 hours...16:15
xfxfmemory fuzzy, sorry16:15
CarlFKso any few moments you can give me once you wake up..   I know.. jobs and all16:16
xfxfi won't remember much until i attempt again16:16
xfxfi'll likely try tomorrow morning16:16
xfxfi.e. in ~8-10 hrs16:16
CarlFKthat would be great -16:16
xfxfwhich doesn't help you sorry :(16:16
CarlFKyeah, you wake up about the time talks start16:17
CarlFKno biggie16:17
CarlFKit is more to test vocto16:17
xfxfdid you see the gsoc proposal for hardware mixing?16:18
