00:26<billytwowilly>is it possible to get the ep guide to shade out timeslots where you have something recording?
00:26<billytwowilly>maybe just box the entire timeslot in some color?

00:29<ChaosExiguum>billytwowilly, I think at the moment no, but that would be a nice feature to add ;-)
00:30<billytwowilly>ChaosExiguum: If you send an email to the devel list I'll let you claim it as your own idea;)
00:30<ChaosExiguum>hehe
00:30* billytwowilly is too lazy to sign up
00:32<moegreen>there is an icon in there now right?
00:32<billytwowilly>I think it's only on the specific show that is being recorded though.
00:32<billytwowilly>when there are 80 channels it's hard to tell if you have something recording in that time slot or not.
00:32<moegreen>oh - so you would want the entire area blocked off...interesting
00:33<billytwowilly>not so much blocked off, as maybe blocked in a color. I wouldn't want it to affect me being able to set something else to record.
00:33<ChaosExiguum>or at least colored once there are no more free tuners during that time slot
00:33<Netslayer>i have 500.. it's impossible to find stuff recording
00:33<billytwowilly>like a big rectangle around the time period.
00:33<moegreen>Currently the guide is drawn one show at a time starting at the top then across the scehdule, then onto the next channel
00:34<billytwowilly>maybe it could be one color for atleast one thing recording and another color for no available tuner cards?
00:34<Netslayer>u guys using the multiple tuners, mythtv handles assigning livetv/recordings to the free tuners right u don't have to pick em?
00:34-!-Octane [octane@dsl092-100-149.nyc2.dsl.speakeasy.net] has joined #mythtv
00:34<billytwowilly>Netslayer: I believe so.
00:34<ChaosExiguum>thats what they tell me, I only have one tuner myself
00:34* billytwowilly only has one tuner
00:35<Netslayer>well i will know soon enough, hopefully for livetv it takes the local one, or else i will be crisscrossing data streams accross 54g
00:36<Netslayer>which is another good q, is ringbuffer for livetv local to the computer capturing it or local to the computer watching it
00:36<billytwowilly>Netslayer: I think you set the main tuner, then the second one
00:36<billytwowilly>and it records in that order always.
00:36<Netslayer>ya i think i was reading about that on the docs
00:37* Netslayer dreams of a working mythtv network, as nothing works right now
00:38<Netslayer>actually i never thought of two people watching live tv at the same time crisscrossing cards
00:38<Netslayer>that will be fun to check on the 54G heh
00:40<Netslayer>well at 4000KB/s say for livetv that's about 500-600KB/s per stream so 1000-1200KB/s should be fine with the network

00:55<hadees>anyone use a hauppage grey remote and ogle for dvd with mythtv?
00:55<billytwowilly>I just use mplayer..
00:55<billytwowilly>it's easier.
00:56<hadees>what do you do about title menus? and are the keys mapped already to it?
00:57<billytwowilly>heh;) I'm not really interested in title menus, I was actually happy when I found it just going straight to the movie;)
00:58<hadees>does it always work well though? i remember having trouble with some movies going into the wrong thing
00:59<billytwowilly>I don't know, I haven't used it too much for dvds the five or so I've watched worked just fine.

02:37<hadees>any way to fix this? i don't know if you can do it automatic but if you noticed it mabey you could inform mythtv how far behind it is

09:20<warlord>Zeran: check you backend log and dmesg...
09:20<warlord>(yes, I get that periodically, too -- generally because there is no data or ivtv has hung)
09:23<Zeran>yeah.. it seems to be one of the few remaining annoyance type bugs?
09:24<Zeran>usually when it happens here, the backend continues running but the frontend needs to be killed and restarted

09:28<warlord>Yea, but it usually happens due to something ELSE..
09:28<warlord>Sometimes I've found that the backend needs to be restarted, too
09:28<Zeran>yes, that seems to happen occasionally
09:29<Zeran>its very mysterious
09:29<warlord>Do you use ivtv driver?
09:29<Zeran>yeah
09:29<warlord>Have you checked your kernel logs to see if you got an ivtv timeout?
09:29<Zeran>timeout waiting for firmware?
09:29<warlord>Among others, but yea.
09:31<Zeran>I've seen that in there, yeah
09:31<Zeran>often it seems to have no effect
09:31<warlord>that is the ultimate cause of the timeout..
09:31<warlord>ivtv stops sending data
09:31<Zeran>I haven't positively correlated it with a freeze, but it could well be related
09:31<warlord>so the backend stops being able to send data
09:31<Zeran>ahh I see
09:31<Zeran>interesting that the backend is able to recover
09:31<warlord>Well, it sometimes can..
09:32<Zeran>I would have thought if anything, the frontend could recover but the backend could not
09:32<Zeran>but it seems the reverse
09:32<warlord>when you stop the front end, it stops trying to read from the device.
09:32<Zeran>right
09:32<warlord>sometimes this is enough to unwedge ivtv
09:32<Zeran>so the backend detects this and shuts down ivtv
09:32<warlord>(but not always)
09:33<Zeran>I guess the easiest short term solution would be to patch the front end so that it too can recover.. I guess it would have to drop back to the menu
09:33<Zeran>but you're right, that isnt really solving the root cause of the problem
09:33<warlord>yea, have it periodically check the event loop when it's stuck in that 'waiting' loop.
09:33<warlord>but it would be a good thing to change.
09:34<Zeran>yes.. there appears to be a flag which can break that loop, but I guess it does not get set
09:34<Zeran>its interesting that the front end stops receiving keyboard input too..
09:34<Zeran>almost as if that thread is blocked
09:35<Zeran>perhaps if the keyboard input were still working, it would be possible to issue an exit command which would then perhaps set the flag to break out of the read loop
09:35<warlord>that's what I mean by 'event loop'
09:35<Zeran>yeah
09:35<Zeran>has anyone created such a patch?
09:36<warlord>I dont think so.. You care to work on it?
09:36<Zeran>I'm trying.. I can break it out of the loop easily enough by having it time out if the data doesn't arrive in some period
09:37<Zeran>but what I'd really like to know is, why is the gui/event handling blocked?
09:37<warlord>ENoClue
09:37<Zeran>it is odd
09:37<Zeran>I hear this problem only appeared in version .11 or something?
09:38-!-mecraw [~mecraw@c-24-9-226-58.client.comcast.net] has quit ["Trillian (http://www.ceruleanstudios.com)"]
09:38<warlord>Well, I didn't start using myth until 0.11, so I couldn't tell ya.
09:40<Zeran>assuming a simple front end patch can work..
09:41<Zeran>that leaves us with the mysterious ivtv timeout
09:41<Zeran>do your logs reveal which firmware call is timing out?
09:42<warlord>this should be discussed on #ivtv-dev, and a lot of people are working on that.
09:42<warlord>Also, see some of the last messages on the ivtv-devel mailing list
09:43<Crib>ne1 here?
09:44<warlord>nope, nobody here but us lights....
09:44<warlord> .... and we're out.
09:48<warlord>Zeran: FWIW, there was a patch sent out to ivtv-devel last night that might fix a number of bugs including the firmware timeout (maybe).
09:49<Zeran>oh really
09:49<Zeran>I'll have to check that out
09:49<warlord>Yea, a patch by Anduid
09:49<warlord>er, Anduin
09:52<Zeran>where can I view this list?

09:53<warlord>Zeran: try the ivtv homepage and follow the links?
09:53<warlord>it's QUITE obvvious
09:53<Zeran>yes, I'm there now :)
09:54<Zeran>have you applied the patch?
09:56<warlord>not yet, but I plan to do so RSN.

10:15<Zeran>it sounds promising
10:15<Zeran>nothing seems too broken
10:16<Zeran>the thing is, it fixes a condition on shutting down the encoder
10:16<warlord>yes, i know.
10:16<Zeran>right
10:16<Zeran>so that can explain problems/timeouts when the encoder is started next time
10:16<warlord>right.
10:16<Zeran>but it doesnt explain timeouts in the middle of an encoding session
10:17<Zeran>which is what seems to be causing the data stoppage -> frontend hang
10:17<warlord>i've never seen it happen in the middle of an encoding session.
10:17<Zeran>its usually shortly after some event like a channel change.. and I think(?) myth closes and reopens the encoder when it changes channel?
10:18<warlord>Correct
10:18<Zeran>so it could be it then
10:18<knight->damn, still cant get this tivo to update over ethernet :(
10:18<Rapala>i want to take my pants off
10:18<Rapala>but i won't
10:20<Zeran>hmm
10:21<thor_>Chutt, mythmusic filename.utf8() patches ?
10:24<Zeran>so now I see the "EOS interrupt not received" thing at the end of every capture
10:24<Zeran>but that is expected, as now no interrupt is sent
10:24<Zeran>all good so far
10:24<Zeran>I also see a timeout waiting for firmware on every end capture.. still trying to work out if that is expected too, or not
10:25<warlord>that I dont know.
10:26<Zeran>oo
10:26<Zeran>actually
10:26<Zeran>this one is thrown by the decoder, not the encoder
10:26<Zeran>every time the decoder is shutdown
10:26<warlord>oh, you're using -350 tv-out?
10:27<Zeran>yeah
10:27<warlord>AHH...
10:27<warlord>I dont trust that, yet... it hangs wayyyyy too often for my taste.
10:27<Zeran>yes
10:27<Zeran>that concerns me too
10:27<warlord>I can crash the system (hard) in 5 minutes.
10:27<Zeran>it has trouble with seeking, but pure playback seems to work well
10:27<Zeran>and the OSD stuff is awesome
10:28<warlord>Except I dont like how the EPG+LiveTV works.
10:28<Zeran>hows that?
10:28<warlord>I'd prefer the old-style video-in-the-corner method.
10:28<Zeran>transparently overlayed?
10:28<warlord>Yea.
10:28<Zeran>oh, yes
10:29<Zeran>I guess they dont have a choice with that
10:29<warlord>Makes it REALLY HARD to read the EPG -- especially for my wife.
10:29<Zeran>unless the decoder can position the video arbitarily
10:29<warlord>You could always, oh, stop using the decoder for video...
10:29<Zeran>which one thinks it probably cant
10:29<warlord>Turn the alpha up so the EPG is opaque..
10:29<warlord>and play the video via the FB
10:30<Zeran>get coding then :)
10:30<warlord>paying work comes first.
10:30<Zeran>there seems to be code that does that already for previewing recordings
10:30<warlord>correct.
10:31<Zeran>back to testing
10:38<Crib>What should I try if after installing myth and bttv when i go to 'watch tv' the screen goes black
10:38<Crib>like how can i test the tv card seperate from myth

14:24<Chutt>it's in the source and in every single binary package.
14:25<thor_>and it's on the website
14:25<Chutt>if you use viewcvs
14:25<Peit|Home>doh, forgot about viewcvs, soryr
14:25<Chutt>thor, i'd think local8bit would be more appropriate
14:25<Chutt>than utf8
14:27<thor_>ok ... I don't really understand character encoding stuff ... you want me to just go through and do the local8bit() substitutions ?
14:27<racer32>where is the shutdown option?
14:27<Rule>darn, still having the blank screen problem. Sound is ok. Can anyone point me in the right direction ? I'm running into walls with this global/localalpha stuff :(
14:28<racer32>i allways had this option but now its gone, with the latest CVS
14:32<Chutt>thor, i'll test some things
14:32<Chutt>so don't worry about it
14:32<thor_>k
14:33<thor_>btw, the key bindings stuff works great ...
14:34<thor_>but I wonder if we want a flag in the database and a switch on the php to do for all hosts ?
14:34<Chutt>thought about that but decided against it
14:34<thor_>k
14:35<thor_>drop down selector in the php for host ?
14:36<thor_>(just trying to figure out how not to have one apache per myth box ... but I'm sure you've already grasped that :-) )

14:37<thor_>nm
14:38<Chutt>heh
14:38<racer32>chut you saw my question? any idea? did i miss something on the list?
14:39<Chutt>yes, you did.
14:39<warlord>Chutt, always the helpful soul....
14:39<warlord>;)
14:42<racer32>hmmm have to look then again, thnx helpful soul!
14:43<racer32>ok found it! thnx
14:44<dja>thor: you here?
14:44<racer32>but if i wish to shutdown, it means i wish to shutdown, so i don't give a damn about cheduled recordings!
14:44<racer32>and i think many more
14:45<Chutt>so add a shutdown button to your main menu
14:45<Chutt>nobody's stopping you
14:47<Peit|Home>don't suppose there's a way of not running the commercial detection on a given scheduled recording/channel, i know i can clean it up afterwards, but is there a way through the gui?
14:47<racer32>:) could expect such a answer from you, damn youre such a great programmer, only you're so................GRRRRRRRR :(
14:47<dja>chutt: any comments on if it's possible to save the position in the show you're watching before "jumping"?
14:47<Chutt>if you don't have automatic commercial skipping on, it won't automatically skip
14:47<Chutt>dja, sure, it'd be easy
14:47<dja>cool -- I'll look into it - thanks. :-)
14:48<Chutt>in fact, i think if you just turn on the automatic position saving
14:48<Chutt>it'd work
14:48<dja>I've got it turned on, but it doesn't seem to be working for me...hrm...
14:48<Chutt>i may be bypassing something in there, i don't remember
14:48<dja>ok
14:56<racer32>is someone writing a pocketpc remote control app for mythtv?
14:56<Chutt>nope
14:57<racer32>if i want to start such a thing what is the best to communicate with mythtv i mean:
14:57<racer32>how do i know on which screen i am?
14:57<Chutt>you'd have to write that.
14:57<racer32>:) youre so funny!
14:58<racer32>so mfd can't/won't be a part in that?
14:58<Chutt>mfd doesn't have anything to do with the frontend yet.
14:59<racer32>yet, i know, but it could do such a thing i think!
14:59<Chutt>it won't for a while yet.
15:00<racer32>ok
15:00<racer32>chutt you know dvb-s streams?
15:00<Chutt>nope
15:01<racer32>ok
15:01<racer32>ok last one
15:02<racer32>why does mythmusic not ff or rew with the IR?
15:02<Chutt>because you didn't set up the proper key for it?
15:03<racer32>no no no, if i skip the music skips 1 time (few seconds), music stops after a long wait it goes on
15:03<Chutt>oh, because mythmusic's audio output is picky about bad sound drivers
15:03<racer32>alsa? audigy?
15:04<Chutt>yup.
15:04<racer32>hmmm, damn again!
15:04<racer32>can you please make me happy today on some point?
15:04<thor_>dja, I am now
15:04<racer32>any
15:07<racer32>think not

15:07<dja>thor: I was going to ask you the best way to debug mtd, but I think I've figured it out: start ripping a dvd, then use gdb to attach to the already running process?
15:08<thor_>gdb mtd ?
15:08<dja>gdb mtd <pid>
15:08<thor_>sure
15:08<thor_>but, be warned, the mtd is quite buggy
15:09<dja>ahh...so is mfd going to replace mtd? (sorry for my ignorance :-)
15:09<thor_>yup
15:09<thor_>well
15:09<thor_>that's the plan
15:10<dja>cool....it works most of the time, just a little frustrating when it dies after I've queued up 8 jobs...:-) I'll just learn to be more patient and only queue up 1 or 2 jobs at a time...thnx
15:10<thor_>yeah, it's useable if you don't flex it too much
15:10<thor_>but it's pretty crappy code
15:11<dja>:-) I like flexing things...I'm finally getting around to re-ripping my dvd's (transcode seems to do about 20% better on the compression over the Winders product I used many moons ago to make my current collection)

16:26<Peit|Home>chutt i presume such a thing isn't possible, afaik there's know way to alter the record time of a show in progress?
16:26<Chutt>it'd be a couple lines of code
16:26<Invisi>Peit|Home: I'm sure you could code it to be so. :)
16:26<Chutt>nothing difficult.
16:27<Invisi>all I know is that it uses a lot more cpu to decode my atsc card than xine or mplayer.
16:27<Invisi>:(
16:27<Invisi>oh well
16:28<kvandivo>the hardest part would probably be to get the decoder (be it x50, or whatever) to detect that 'little signal that is part of the broadcast'
16:28<thor_>for the bazillionth time, live is recorded, which is more or less the definition of a PVR
16:28<Invisi>thor_: I can record the live stream, and watch it, with less cpu power than myth

17:02* kvandivo wonders to himself if globalsettings has any plans to finish compiling this century.
17:09<billytwowilly>question: If I have 2 frontends and two backends If I set set one backend up as a slave to the other master and I have the two frontends connecting to the master backend will they automatically use the backends on the best backend for them? ie, will they use the backend on their own machine or their designated backend?
17:25<sfr>hm, anyone else noticed that playback of mjpeg files is broken?
17:25<kvandivo>i had noticed, but i decided i'd keep a secret and hope that it fixed itself. (just kidding.. totally kidding...)
17:26<sfr>broken as giving wrong colours. mplayer plays them fine though. is that ffmpegs fault?
17:27<Chutt>sfr, can't think of anything else it'd be

17:29<sfr>i looked in the ffmpeg ml at sourceforge but didn't found others reporting it. i just subscribed to sourceforge and ask there.
17:29<warlord>sfr: try using mplayer with ffmpeg's codecs
17:30<sfr>warlord: an older mplayer version plays them just fine. or did you mean to verify the problem lies in the ffmepg libs?
17:31<dja_>Chutt: I've made a simple patch for the save position problem...but it only works if you've select "save position and exit". To get it to save if you've selected "Always prompt" requires a larger (and not as clean) patch. Do you have a preference?
17:31<dja_>s/select/selected/
17:32<warlord>sfr: the latter.. tell mplayer to specifically use the ffmpeg codec.

18:47<o_cee>yeah well, i like having them in my real collection instead
18:47<o_cee>if it's worth saving
18:47<steelep>I do, that's not the point
18:47<steelep>it takes weeks to reload them
18:47<o_cee>reload?
18:48<steelep>re rip the cds to divx, cds to mp3
18:48<o_cee>don't see why you want to rip your dvd's to divx and keep them on a hd
18:48<steelep>even a backup would be several hundred dvds
18:49<steelep>because I share them between a half a dozen machines
18:49<steelep>I have real video/music on demand for my whole library
18:50<o_cee>people do things different ways ;) still don't see the point in having 2000 dvd's on computers instead of just grabbin the disc when you want to see it.. i mean, you don't watch the same movie _that_ often
18:50<sfr>but 2000 dvd's take a lot of space in the living room
18:51<o_cee>sure, but they look good :)
18:51<steelep>exactly, searching for a flick is too hard manually
18:51<steelep>especially if I am in bed
18:51<o_cee>and the point in buying dvd's is the quality, wich you loose with divx.. anyway :)
18:51<billytwowilly>I like having all my stuff on the hard drive. It's just point and click then...
18:51<sfr>o_cee: think biiig :)
18:51<o_cee>hehehe
18:51<steelep>I loose next to nothing the way i encode them
18:51<steelep>not that noticable anyway
18:52<o_cee>then you don't have the right equipment watching it ;)
18:52<steelep>of course I do
18:52<o_cee>i bet
18:52<o_cee>but you see my point
18:52<o_cee>anyway
18:52<steelep>progressive+hdtv
18:52<o_cee>but you can't say that you don't loose quality.
18:52<steelep>you can encode full resolution and not loose much
18:53<steelep>so I drop from 4-9g to about 1.5-3g per movie
18:53<o_cee>if you'd have them as .vob i'd be happy :)
18:53<steelep>I could do that if 1T hds were out
18:54<steelep>but then I'd want everything in highdef
18:54<steelep>16T raid array.... probably 4-5 years away
18:54<o_cee>yikes
18:54<steelep>I tried jukeboxes, they are complete crap
18:54<o_cee>if you have a disk over, let me know ;) feel very small with my tiny hd's heheh
18:55<sfr>and i thought my 120gb hdd was big :(

18:55<o_cee>maybe
18:56<o_cee>don't see the need for, like, my parents to have that thou
18:56<o_cee>you know, "normal" people
18:56<o_cee>hehe
18:56<steelep>5 yrs ago 1T emc arrays were $1m
18:57<steelep>your kidding, digital camcorders will be all you need to fill it up pretty fast
18:57<steelep>I mean HD digicams
18:57<o_cee>yeah sure.. but camcorders feel very 80-ish
18:57<warlord>Hmm, a 1TB 2.5" (laptop-size) drive...
18:57<steelep>at 8g an hour that's not much space
18:57<o_cee>heheh
18:57<sfr>who would want to watch all those family events anyway?
18:58<o_cee>dunno
18:58<o_cee>:)
18:58<steelep>lots of folks want to edit and share them
18:58* o_cee really needs to do some work
18:58<steelep>or you could just have a straming capture going for a month of Exxxtasy
18:58<o_cee>there we have it! :) that's what you've got on those drives
18:59<steelep>:)
18:59<o_cee>muhahah
18:59<o_cee>then i see your point with picking movie from the bed, hehehheeh
18:59<steelep>just my damned music collection which plays 24/7 crashes everything I try to use it with that isn't sql based
19:00<sfr>well, the porn industry has always been pushing technology
19:00<o_cee>very true sfr
19:00<billytwowilly>god bless the porn industry and their technology pushing;)
19:00<steelep>I better go home
19:00<sfr>steelep: what are you using as a player?
19:01<warlord>ok, all 4 are recording...
19:01<steelep>i've tried winamp, sonique, itunes, wmp9, musik and myth
19:01<steelep>only musik and myth work against the library
19:02<steelep>it's not really the player at fault, its the library
19:02<steelep>they all try to load every friggin song in the library to search in ram, it's not very bright
19:02<o_cee>bleh, only have like 2000 albums.. thought it was more :\
19:03<o_cee>btw
19:03<steelep>anything over 1000 chokes most library apps
19:03<steelep>I have to do autoplaylist thingies for mythmusic
19:03<o_cee>anyone know of a music player thingie that could run like a jukebox? on a touchscreen or something?
19:03<o_cee>steelep: always only play by album really
19:04<steelep>I play mostly by genre
19:04<steelep>I get tired of albums most of the time
19:04<synthmeme>o_cee: http://www.request.com/

19:05<o_cee>mpd? allright, gogglin
19:05<steelep>who wants to buy more hardware when we have 3 or 4 myth frontends already :)
19:05<o_cee>The Myeloproliferative Disorders-.... don't think so
19:06<steelep>a simple sql query playlist creator in myth would work wonders
19:06<steelep>i'm gonna have to hammer that out soon

The dvd audio works fine before a transcoding, but mplayer is not decoding the transcoded audio so that my DD/dts receiver can do the ac52 decoding. Any ideas on how to do this?
20:25<bbeattie>I have to send the dd receiver wav/dd/dts for it to decode(play) but I think once I transcode it, it's sending the audio as/is which it shouldn't be for hac3. I've not yet found a way to force mplayer to do some audio decoding and send the dd receiver what it can handle.. that's what I believe needs to be fixed, any ideas on how is much appreciated, thanks in advance. :)

20:33<bbeattie>.. anyone know what the new keys are for rating adjustments for mythmusic?
20:33<thor_>set them yourself, via mythweb
20:34<bbeattie>hmm, I obviously haven't used mythweb for a while.. Warning: Failed opening '/var/www/tv/program_listing.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/share/pear') in Unknown on line 0 ;)
20:35<thor_>cvs update mythweb
20:36<bbeattie>it's newthor_: latest,
20:36<thor_>cd mythweb ; cp -r . /my/htdocs/dir
20:36<thor_>more README
20:39<kvandivo>any idea what lines of code turn the words 'Master Mixer Volume' white in the settings area? I've borrowed the slider code to put a slider up in a playbackbox, but the label and lcd value are showing in a bright blue that's barely different than the background of the popup box
20:39<kvandivo>(change that 'bright blue' to a 'dull blue' )
20:40<thor_>settings dialogs do different things than themed dialogs
20:40<bbeattie>thor_: is php 4.2.2 needed for sure? (am using 4.1.2)
20:40<thor_>I doubt it
20:41<bbeattie>thor_: phpmyadmin works fine, hmm
20:42<thor_>kvandivo, which playbackbox?
20:42<kvandivo>delete
20:43<thor_>(you can always set the palette values based in things you grab from the inherited ThemedDialog)
20:43<kvandivo>i'm adding in my ranking code.. using a slider that the user can just slide left or right
20:43<kvandivo>and it is currently really hard to read. :)
20:43<thor_>hmmm
20:43<thor_>I'm not that's a MythThemedDialog
20:43<phar0e>I'm building a MythFrontend tomorrow :>>
20:43<kvandivo>i don't think it is..
20:43<thor_>no
20:43<kvandivo>i think that MythPopupBox probably turns everything else white
20:44<thor_>yup
20:44<kvandivo>but the configWidget() code apparently puts things virgin into a QHBox
20:44<kvandivo>and I think that is where the 'white' is getting dropped
20:44<kvandivo>I guess I'll write a version of configWidget that passes in the foreground colors and then make the widgets inside of that inherit them
20:44<thor_>you might ask the parent for its palette, assign that, and then stick the slider into the popup
20:45<kvandivo>yep.. i think we are saying the same thing. :)
20:45<thor_>yup

22:53<billytwowilly>Teflon: http://www.a-computers.ca/case.htm I'm using the cd-100 with my microatx nforce2 mb. works great.
22:53<billytwowilly>it's also only 69 bucks and looks nice.
22:53<Teflon>system is too busy to load a webpage right now (burning dvd+ripping cd)
22:53<Teflon>give me 10 mins :)
22:54<billytwowilly>heh. now worries.
22:55<CyberKnet>has anyone had any trouble with myth refusing to change channel? i.e. if you press up/dn or pgup/pgdn or go into the guide, choose a new channel and press m then it just reverts back to the channel you were already on?
22:56<CyberKnet>This would also apply to any scheduled recordings... almost like Myth can only tune one channel
