00:50<mikegrb>It looks like qtimer can't be called from a static function as it needs an object, am I missing something or is this the case?

00:51<phar0e>Hello
00:54<linagee>someone should develop an algorithm to generate unique signatures from commercials. (maybe you could have it match a certain percentage to a signature in case there's fuzz) dump everything into a central database on the internet, and the computer can look for them and never show those commercials! :)
00:55<phar0e>that sounds.. complicated
00:59<linagee>phar0e: yes. it does. but it would also work very good. :)
00:59<phar0e>hey.. i'm not saying I wouldn't die for that :)
00:59<linagee>phar0e: you could even make it match more or less based upon cpu power to match
01:00<linagee>can anyone help me set up my hauppauge tuner?
01:00<phar0e>I'm having a little trouble myself
01:00<linagee>phar0e: everything with my pvr250 box is going great, but i still have no working tuner support. :(
01:01<phar0e>saying can't probe /dev/video for its inputs
01:01<phar0e>I just have a cheap PCI ATI TV wonder
01:01<phar0e>what is wrong though?
01:01<linagee>phar0e: ATI TV or ATI all in wonder?
01:01<phar0e>ATI TV
01:01<linagee>does it work with the bttv modules?
01:02<phar0e>yeah
01:02<phar0e>I know it works, had it going in my other machine with MythTV no problems
01:02<phar0e>but then I decided to do some upgrades
01:02<phar0e>went from 1000Mhz -> 1.53GHz, DDR ram, 120G WD 8MB Cache x2.. etc
01:03<linagee>phar0e: why did you not use the same harddrive then?
01:03<phar0e>wanted to start clean
01:03<linagee>phar0e: just make a few kernel modifications or who knows maybe none at all
01:03<linagee>phar0e: does xawtv work?
01:06<phar0e>haven't tested that yet
01:15<phar0e>chmod 666 /dev/video0 fixed it
01:16<phar0e>2 programs, using 13 GB out of 98 GB
01:16<phar0e>weee

11:15<mattfelsen>i'm trying to get output on my widescreen tv, and i'm unsure of whether i should either keep X at a 4:3 res and have the tv stretch it to fill, or if i should actually have X display at a 16:9 res...the former looks good, but any widescreen programs are letterboxed on a widescreen tv...the latter, i'm unsure of how that would work with different formats and such
11:16<mattfelsen>i tried getting X to use a 720x405 res, but it says it's not a valid tv mode, so i'm unsure if i should be using a different widescreen res or something, and i don't understand how switching to 16:9 output in myth (the w key) is supposed to work...it looks like it just vertically shrinks the picture, thereby also letterboxing on a widescreen tv

20:56<bline>but yeah, it's gotten better
20:58<D-side>I'm probably going to be doing a dual P4 2ghz+ backend, so the pvr (2|3)50's dont do it much for me.

20:59<bline>it had nothing to do with your upgrade
20:59<bline>it's been discussed on the -dev list

20:59<D-side>thanks, and sorry all at once.
21:00<bline>no idea about the weather stuff, I don't use it
21:00<D-side>i'll check the lists i should have read first before i bother anyone again. heh
21:00<bline>someone submitted a patch for the mythvideo stuff, but it hasn't been applied yet

21:01<bline>i was refering to you not seeing it on the dev list heh
21:02<D-side>yeah well i feel stupid for that as it is. thanks for not rubbing it in
21:02<bline>sorry, I don't
21:02* bline plans on getting a gf4i soon
21:02<D-side>I'm fairly sure they dont make them cheap.
21:03<bline>maybe try ebay
21:03<D-side>i stuck in a gf4mx440 and the tv-out is way better than the crap scan converter i was using before. wish i didnt have to have a tuner card though. i'm just using it to pull in svideo from the digital cable box.
21:04<D-side>an all-in-one card like a VIVO would be perfect, especially if i go through with the pundit purchase
21:05<mattfelsen>mythweather works fine for me, although i'm using cvs
21:05<D-side>yeah, i'm on rh.
21:05<D-side>i dont particularly want to spend time maintaining it, so i'm just using rpms.
21:05<D-side>flame me all you want, as i deserve it.
21:06<D-side>i really should have gone the sid route, but i tried dist-upgrading from a clean woody install and it crapped itself. i just did NOT feel like fighting it
21:06<D-side>I'm not 100% retarded.
21:06<D-side>just lazy.
21:07<mattfelsen>i wasn't planning on flaming...and i know that there are plenty of things that have a higher priority than keeping up with bleeding edge software releases
21:07<mattfelsen>as for the debian thing...i went from a clean woody install -> sarge without problems, and that's what i'm using now
21:07<mattfelsen>just fyi, not trying to sway you or anything :)
21:07<D-side>i thought the debs were built for sid alone
21:08<D-side>oh no. sway me. sway me.
21:08<mattfelsen>there are debs for stable & unstable, but as i said before, i'm using cvs
21:09<D-side>you're a better man than I
21:09<mattfelsen>heh

21:10<D-side>next up is my plan to use a 2.4ghz wireless a/v extender and stick the box in the server room instead of next to the tv.
21:10<tmk>i've been having mythbackend segfault on me lately
21:10<tmk>a few times
21:10<tmk>anyone else have similar issues?
21:10<D-side>not really.
21:11<D-side>i've been pretty good recently, sans my imdb and weather issues.
21:11<bline>wouldn't it be cheaper to just wire the house with cat5?
21:11<D-side>mattfelsen: play with nuvexport much?
21:11<mattfelsen>not at all
21:11<bline>hey tmk
21:11<bline>someone was just asking about the pvr250 driver
21:11<tmk>oh yea?
21:11<D-side>bline: its already connected via wlan, but thats not the point of the project.
21:12<D-side>the box isnt silent, so i'd rather have it completely out of that room.
21:12<bline>so run a cable to where you want it
21:12<D-side>also, theres a million and a half things plugged into the wall jacks. fire hazard city.
21:12<D-side>bline: i dont think we're talking about the same things here.
21:13<bline>you want to remote the backend to some back room
21:13<bline>?
21:13<D-side>no, this isnt a backend/frontend scenario
21:13<D-side>its a single machine
21:13* tmk pokes chutt
21:13<D-side>basically do the A/V cabling "virtually"
21:13<bline>get a second small machine :)
21:13<D-side>heh. the wireless extenders are cheaper.
21:14<D-side>though with the ITX distro being worked on now, its a distinct possibility.
21:14<bline>I don't mind the computer next to the tv, ofcoarse I used to sleep with it in the same room
21:14<D-side>i just wish the pundit configs didnt require so much damned work.
21:15<D-side>i dont want to do cvs myth stuff, god help me if i have to start usign cvs X.
21:16<bline>cvsmyth stays pretty stable, Chutt is really good about that
21:16<D-side>tomorrow i get to pick out the components for, purchase, assemble, and then install a brand new myth system for a friend with zero linux knowledge.
21:16<mattfelsen>using experimental X 4.3 packages on debian broke x for me, heh
21:16<D-side>mattfelsen: heh. no thanks.
21:17<D-side>its a shame i'm such a lazy bastard too. the pundit looks like an amazing box to do this with. anyone actually have one?

21:23<tmk>heh
21:23<bline>:)
21:23<tmk>damn.
21:24<mattfelsen>#18, iirc
21:24<mattfelsen>anyone know how to create an html file from a perl script with pod in it?
21:25<mattfelsen>nevermind, got it
21:25<bline>pod2html
21:25<tmk>hm. i was afraid i'd have to run it in gdb
21:25<tmk>:<
21:25<Chutt>why?
21:25<tmk>slows it down a bit
21:25<Chutt>it's not doing anything, shouldn't slow stuff down much by running it in gdb
21:25<tmk>my box is slow enough already
21:26<tmk>i s'pose
21:26<tmk>do i have to recompile though
21:27<Chutt>yes
21:27<tmk>arr
21:27<Chutt>need to know where it's crashing, first =)
21:27<tmk>k
21:27<tmk>mythbackend, seems to be after a recording finsihes
21:28<tmk>mythfrontend isn't runnin' at all
21:28<Chutt>could be commercial detection related, possibly
21:29<tmk>is that on by default?
21:29<Chutt>yeah
21:29<tmk>i see
21:29<tmk>well it IS CVS from a while back
21:29<Chutt>i'd upgrade, first of all
21:29<tmk>yeah
21:29<Chutt>though, maybe not
21:29<Chutt>i've been breaking crap
21:29<Chutt>everything _should_ be working, though
21:30<tmk>cool
21:30<mattfelsen>is cvs back up?
21:30<Chutt>yes
21:30<D-side>mattfelsen: nuvexport actually does avi, mpeg2 (svcd), and wmv i believe.
21:30<Chutt>machine shut itself down
21:31<D-side>mattfelsen: my only issue with it is the fact that its defaulting to PAL, and i cant for the life of me figure out where to change it to be ntsc.
21:31<mikegrb>chutt I fixed my problem stupid really, changed the class name the .cpp and .h names but forgot to update the include to the new .h name
21:32<Chutt>heh
21:32<mattfelsen>i'm going to play with nuvexport now
21:33<mattfelsen>hopefully i have a recording to play with though...i just found out my father shut off the computer and i missed all my simpsons recordings
21:33<D-side>mattfelsen: be sure to figure out how to make mine work while you're at it.
21:33<mattfelsen>:)
21:33<mikegrb>Chutt: got (hopefully one last <g>) last question, I get a warning on compile, xboxtv.cpp:26: warning: the address of `int RemoteIsRecording()', will always
21:33<mikegrb> be `true'
21:34<Chutt>what's the line?
21:34<mikegrb>I added RemoteIsRecording to remoteutil like the other stuff there and called it like the others
21:34<D-side>I need to chip my stupid xbox.
21:34<mikegrb>it's just "if (RemoteIsRecording())"
21:34<Chutt>what's line 26?
21:35<Chutt>ah, i dunno
21:35<mikegrb>oh no ()
21:35<Chutt>i'd have to see it.
21:35<mattfelsen>oh, before i forget...does anyone get black bars in the upper right hand corner of the epg?
21:35<Chutt>well, that's why, most likely
21:35<mattfelsen>upper left, sorry
21:35<mikegrb>I can pate it to you if you want (in a msg) it is only abt 28 or so lines long
21:35<Chutt>naw
21:35<Chutt>i'm going out again in a sec.
21:35<D-side>not I. only black bars i get are when i go to 720x480.
21:36<mikegrb>okay thanks though
21:36<D-side>my solution is to run at 704x480, since i'm a lazy bastard.
21:36<D-side>seems to be the theme of the evening.
21:36<mattfelsen>egh...resolutions confuse me
21:37<mikegrb>hmmm Chutt... making it RemoteIsRecording() instead of RemoteIsRecording made the warning go away
21:38<rkulagow>chutt: please sync docs (and the pdf) when you get the chance.
21:39<Chutt>rkulagow, i'll do it when i get back

21:46<mattfelsen>is there a way to decrease the amount of seconds that myth buffers when watching live tv?
21:47<D-side>not via the menus, that i know of.
21:47<D-side>you're sure you want to do that?
21:48<mattfelsen>just wanted to get rid of that delay :-\

21:58<mattfelsen>when you do an instant recording, is the preview supposed to freeze?
21:59<mattfelsen>hmm...the whole interface is frozen
21:59<dopez>it seems that mythfrontend reports only 6gb of free space while i have 12gb free, anyone else noticed mythfrontend reporting wrong freespace?
22:03<mattfelsen>um..df reports 2% usage while myth reports 7%
22:03<mattfelsen>if that helps any
22:05<dopez>frontend report 93% free , df 89%

22:34* mattfelsen probably isn't the best source of advice
22:34<mattfelsen>sooo....let's hear your questions
22:35<D-side>eh, its not really questions per se.
22:35<D-side>i've already built two of the things, i'm just wondering what cheap hardware people are using
22:36<D-side>i'm thinking original Nforce board, gf4mx w/ tv out, athlon xp2xxx, 512mb.
22:36<D-side>i really dont need to go nforce, but its like $60.
22:36<mattfelsen>*shrug* i got a biostar board for a decent price
22:37<D-side>i guess i'm just looking for something with decent onboard audio and nic.
22:37<mdz>dwmurphy: why exactly did you need to do that?
22:37<mattfelsen>i thought a lot of people say onboard audio is crap
22:38<mattfelsen>this is odd...trying to delete an instant recording i just made, myth says "Error: File Missing!"
22:39<Chutt>instant recording's broken.
22:39<Chutt>no one's sent in a patch to fix it yet
22:39<mattfelsen>ah
