---Logopened Sun Jan 04 00:00:08 2004
00:00<ShockValue>wow, easytag is really borked.. 25% of my 6000 files just dont have (readable) tags.. even though when i load them in EasyTag it says they do.. myth and xmms can't see them.
00:01<cmorgan>xmms is funny with tags
00:01<cmorgan>might be reading only id3v2 tags if no v1 tag is present or something
00:01<ShockValue>no, cause it reads the other 75% fine. 100% of them are id3v1
00:02<cmorgan>hmm
00:02<ShockValue>before i just re-did all my tags, i stripped all tag information just to make sure there wasnt multiple formats etc.
00:03<ShockValue>or at least, accodring to EasyTag I did :D
00:03<cmorgan>ahh, was just throwing that out
00:03<ShockValue>nah its cool
00:03<cmorgan>someone mentioned some issue with tags in #xmms and something like that
00:03<ShockValue>alternative viewpoints are nice, often pointes out my own flawed reasoning :)
00:04<ShockValue>so far im still convinced easytag isnt working as-advertised :)
00:04<ShockValue>well thats good at least.. its way easier for me to find a new tagger than it is to try and debug myth..
00:05<DJ_Rican>where do find the READMEs for the different myth modules?
00:05<pahli_bar>DJ_Rican: if you compiled from source readmes are in the source tarballs for each module.
00:06<pahli_bar>DJ_Rican: if not its packaging dependent
00:06<ShockValue>looking for docs, one sec
00:07<ShockValue>try:
00:07<ShockValue>. /usr/share/doc/*
00:07<DJ_Rican>i didn't they were all rpms
00:09<DJ_Rican>thx found them
00:11<pahli_bar>hmm. sodipodi is real nice. only if it didn't crash so often
00:11<ShockValue>what is sodipodi?
00:12<pahli_bar>ShockValue: vector editor like adobe illustrator
00:12<ShockValue>ah cool
00:12<ShockValue>was hopign it was a tagger that I had missed >:)
00:13<pahli_bar>ShockValue: if you like commandline... id3ed is nice
00:14<mikekedl>cmorgan: for now (on my machine at least) I have mythmusic working with a bunch if #ifdef ARTS
00:14<mikekedl>after I started looking into it, it was much easier; so much other junk going on
00:14<cmorgan>mikekedl: nice
00:14<mikekedl>sounds great so far :-)
00:15<mikekedl>I didn't want to rewrite all the mutex/thread/visual stuff whoever wrote it had integrated all thru the audio out code
00:15<ShockValue>pahli_bar: does it support multiple files at a time?
00:16<cmorgan>mikekedl: yeah. that stuff should be refactored a bit so it isn't so tied to the output driver
00:16<mikekedl>is the mythmusic maintainer here? still don't know if they'll take it :-/
00:16<cmorgan>that code can probably only take so many more ifdefs ;-) heh
00:17<mikekedl>cmorgan: do you maintain it?
00:17<cmorgan>i do not
00:17<mikekedl>lol
00:17<cmorgan>heh
00:17<cmorgan>but i can look into changing it to make it easier to support other output types
00:17<cmorgan>is arts selectable at runtime?
00:17<cmorgan>or is that a compile time thing?
00:18<mikekedl>at this exact moment in time its compile time
00:18<mikekedl>since if you don't have arts includes/libs it won't even compile
00:18<pahli_bar>ShockValue: oh yes.
00:19<mikekedl>cmorgan: on my system I could make it run time selectable, but that wouldn't let it even compile then for people that don't have arts
00:19<mikekedl>and seems kind of odd to have compile time switch and then runtime select as well, but I guess you can do that.... xmms does....
00:19<mikekedl>eh, I guess that makes sense
00:20<cmorgan>mikekedl: yeah. need to do a configure test and decide whether to build the code or not. or optionally dlopen the arts library at runtime
00:20<mikekedl>I'll just send along this patch and see who sticks their head up to see what they want to do about multiple choices; this seems to be the first "choice" for mythmusic audio output
00:21<mikekedl>this will allow people to play with it; but whole mythmusic audio thing should probably get tweaked to do oss/alsa, arts, jackit thingy, etc.
00:22<mikekedl>I find it interesting that I had to massage the audio out in mythtv (like oss does IIRC) but not in mythmusic....
00:23<mikekedl>off to make a patch file....
00:25<pahli_bar>again just being curious. what is the motivation behind multiple app soundcard access for myth
00:26*DJ_Rican is gonna crawl under a rock and... i can't get mythtv to re-rip the same track... :(
00:35<DJ_Rican>this sucks... if i rip a track and sound doesn't work, i can't re-rip it using a different sound option... :(
00:35<mikekedl>pahli_bar: if you are asking me why? because I run multiple apps that try to open the sound device: AIM, Window Manager (sound effects), mplayer, xmms, etc, apps I am writing...
00:35<mikekedl>I get tired of starting/killing artsd
00:35<mikekedl>waiting for an app to exit, etc
00:36<mikekedl>if I have xmms paused, it doesn't release the audio, so I can't watch a 30 minute show on myth; I have to kill xmms; if I want to pause mythmusic and watch a dvd; I have to kill myth; etc
00:36<mikekedl>make sense?
00:37<mikekedl>with a sound server of hw capable of mixing (I wish I had I guess) you can run lots of apps that share the device and none have to close or exit or get in "the right state"
00:37<mikekedl>of=or
00:38<cmorgan>well if all of those apps supported your sound server you'd be all set ;-)
00:39<mikekedl>they do
00:40<mikekedl>xmms, mplayer, aim, stuff I work on, and myth
00:40<cmorgan>yep
00:40<mikekedl>and xine
00:41<ShockValue>does arts cause a loss in fidelity? I wouldnt mind using arts for myth, but not if it sacrificed quality
00:41<mikekedl>wmorgan: and the wm itself of course; everything all nice and happy now :-)
00:41<mikekedl>shockvalue: sounds the same to me; the only issue I know of, as cmorgan pointed out, is does the latency cause problems
00:42+monkeyBox_ [bdavis@ip68-102-5-10.ks.ok.cox.net] joined #mythtv
00:42<pahli_bar>mikekedl: ah.
00:42<mikekedl>with music it shouldn't be an issue; with tv it could
00:42<monkeyBox_>Hi all. I'm having trouble playing mythmusic files that are mounted over NFS.. I keep getting a decoder error. When I play the music locally it seems to work fine.
00:42<monkeyBox_>I've made sure
00:42<mikekedl>but it "looks" ok to me; but I've only watched a few hours with arts...
00:42<ShockValue>except for perhaps gapless playback(?)
00:43<pahli_bar>mikekedl: unlike you i run a dedicated mythbox
00:43<monkeyBox_>I've made sure that the mythtv user has permissions on the files as well
00:43<ShockValue>monkeyBox_: strange that.. i have it playing via nfs OK with no errors currently
00:43<mikekedl>pahli_bar: I am testing in that mode at the moment; since I don't want to break my "wifes" system
00:43<mikekedl>(my laptop has a tv tuner built in)
00:44<pahli_bar>mikekedl: nice. what laptop and what tuner?
00:44<ShockValue>monkeyBox_: can you play the NFS files with a different audio player (like xxms or something) ?
00:44<pahli_bar>Chutt: you awake?
00:44<monkeyBox_>ShockValue: Yes, I can play mp3s w/ mpg123 or madplay ... What's your export line look like?
00:44<ShockValue>umm, let me check
00:44<mikekedl>pahli_bar: sager 2.4Ghz P4, Avermedia tv system; came with a remote and everything :-)
00:45*pahli_bar drools
00:45<mikekedl>work bought it of course
00:45<mikekedl>I beat the #$%%$ out of it day and night :-)
00:45<mikekedl>it is off like 60 minutes a day as I drive to/from work
00:46<ShockValue>./raid/audio 10.1.1.0/255.255.255.0(rw)
00:46<ShockValue>./raid/video 10.1.1.0/255.255.255.0(rw)
00:46<ShockValue>(minus the "." to make it paste OK"
00:46<mikekedl>pahli_bar: over a year and a half old now; should be pretty cheap
00:46<mikekedl>ie, 1200-1500 I would guess now (USD)
00:46<pahli_bar>mikekedl: i think i'm going apple for my next purchase
00:46<mikekedl>ug
00:47<mikekedl>my grandfather in law loves them :-)
00:47<mikekedl>I haven't used them much since the "old days" when I used to sell them
00:47<monkeyBox_>ShockValue: what about "sync" or "async" ?
00:47<mikekedl>owned so many apple 2, 2+, 2e, mac 128, mac ... stuff
00:47<ShockValue>isnt that in fstab?
00:47<ShockValue>(im kinda new to nfs)
00:47<pahli_bar>i meant a powerbook/ibook. those things look lickingly good
00:48<mikekedl>pahli_bar: now that they're going *nix I may take a peak
00:48<ShockValue>well, what i posted there is my entire exports file
00:48<mikekedl>pahli_bar: but pc stuff is so cheap
00:48<mikekedl>and multi-source
00:48<mikekedl>apple == 1 source
00:48<pahli_bar>mikekedl: thats my motivation exactly. bsd base
00:48<monkeyBox_>hmm.. ok. I'll take a look at it some more...
00:49<pahli_bar>mikekedl: used to love freebsd. till the hw support started going down
00:49<ShockValue>im not very linux smart, but since i have it workin ok, let me know if you want any more copy+paste :D
00:49<mikekedl>pahli_bar: http://sagernotebooks.com; the model on the front page is the same line I have, just its great great grandchild

00:55<ShockValue>thats what my fstab entry looks like.
00:56<mikekedl>pahli_bar: does what I want is what I'm looking for :-) small and sleek is nice, but functionality comes first for me
00:57<mikekedl>besides, I need the exercise!

01:18<mikekedl>mythmusic patch off the the mailing list; now to finish the patch for mythtv
01:18<mikekedl>arts should work for music if you run "configure --enable-arts"
01:18<DJ_Rican>whenever the developer of mythdvd especially the rip part comes in, could someone let me know please...
01:26=monkeyBox_ [bdavis@ip68-102-5-10.ks.ok.cox.net] quit ("Client exiting")
01:29<pahli_bar>DJ_Rican: still struggling with the rip
01:30<DJ_Rican>i kinda gave up until someone that knows how to fix it comes along...
01:30<pahli_bar>DJ_Rican: let me try. i have never used mythdvd though.
01:31<DJ_Rican>well, if you rip a track and it comes out wrong, it won't let you re-rip it...
01:31<pahli_bar>DJ_Rican: as root. type mysql
01:31<pahli_bar>once you get the mysql prompt type use mythconverg;
01:31<DJ_Rican>i'm not going into that... i'm watching a movie right now... thx
01:31<pahli_bar>DJ_Rican: fine
01:32<DJ_Rican>if you know the exact field and the table that mythdvd writes to, then that could help...
01:33<pahli_bar>only way i can do that is by installing mythdvd, which i have no use for
01:34<DJ_Rican>thx bud, don't go through the trouble... it's a pain...

01:48<mikekedl>just emailed mythtv patch to the list to use arts sound daemon; YMMV
01:48<DJ_Rican>maybe if i delete the records in those tables, i can rip again....

02:32<vagrant>did. seem to work fine.
02:32<vagrant>ergh.

13:14<ShockValue>woo hoo! finally got Myth to recognise my entire audio collection properly..
13:15<ShockValue>turns out it was EasyTag either a) not completley compatible with MythTv, or b) EasyTag being partially broken :)
13:16<sfr>what version of easytag did you use?
13:17<ShockValue>0.30c
13:19<ShockValue>about 25% of my music files that were tagged with easytag weren't showing up myth.. so I loaded them up in a different tagger and the tags didnt show up there either. Re-tagged them with tagger#2 and now they work fine.
13:19<sfr>weird.
13:20<ShockValue>yep, caused me quite some frustration... im good now though, just tired from tagging until 4am :)
13:21<kvandivo>interesting.. apparently the 'category' isn't reliably getting put into the programinfo object when viewing your list of prerecorded shows
13:23<Chutt>kvandivo, you're not seeing the segfault in the linear blend filter, are you?
13:24<kvandivo>nope
13:24<Chutt>damn
13:25<Chutt>i need someone competent to help debug it :(
13:25<kvandivo>wait.. maybe i am.. let me rerun.. (haven't been using myth much for actual tv watching lately.. :)
13:27<kvandivo>videoout_xv.cpp:841 sound familiar?
13:28<Chutt>yup
13:28<Chutt>sweet
13:28<kvandivo>let me throw valgrind, etc at it
13:28<Chutt>nono
13:28<Chutt>filters/linearblend/
13:28<Chutt>filter_linearblend.cpp
13:28<Chutt>the linearBlendMMX() function
13:28<Chutt>just in that function, can you try changing all ebx to edx?
13:29<kvandivo>one sec
13:30<Chutt>i think that fixes it, just need to confirm
13:31<kvandivo>hmm.. lotta those little suckers.. methinks a :.,'a/sebx/edx/g is in order
13:32<Chutt>nope
13:32<Chutt>can't, there's stuff in the cpuid function that needs ebx
13:32<kvandivo>well, i set a mark ( 'a ) at the end of the function and did that from the beginning. :)
13:33<Chutt>heh
13:33<kvandivo>the s and the / are transposed in that, though...
13:33<Chutt>ok
13:33<kvandivo>fixed it for me
13:34<kvandivo>video came up, nothing strange apparent, etc etc.
13:34<kvandivo>you wanna patch?
13:35<Chutt>already did it in my local tree
13:35<kvandivo>figured.. but thought i would offer..
13:36<Chutt>thanks =)
13:44<kvandivo>well i'll be.. sure enough, HandleQueryRecordings isn't grabbing the category..
13:45<Chutt>it wasn't filled in originally
13:48<kvandivo>did you mean to say something in the response to Debabrata? :)
13:48<Chutt>yes
13:48<Chutt>i'm waiting to get the email so i can respond to it properly
13:49<kvandivo>just strange to see a reply from you without any text.. that's all.. no biggie
13:50<Chutt>clicked send before typing in 'applied'
13:50<Chutt>:p

15:34<FatLazyNinja>from console that is
15:34<DJ_Rican>hmm.. did you have x running?
15:34<DJ_Rican>there should be an icon under games or create one that points to snes9x...

16:38<girliegir>Having trouble with myth, have Hauppauge! PVR-350
16:39<girliegir>anyone around who can assist?
16:39<Chutt>mailing list.
16:40<girliegir>been there for the last 3 days
16:40<girliegir>thought i'd try here
16:40<Chutt>then ask a question on it.
16:41<girliegir>we've got it working fine if we set tv out to be the pvr350, but how do we make it send it to the computer screen
16:41<Chutt>you don't.
16:42<Chutt>if you want to use the pvr-350's decoder, you have to use the tv out on the pvr-350.
16:42<girliegir>it's impossible to watch tv on the screen if you have a pvr350?
16:42<Chutt>unless you want to use software decoding
16:42<girliegir>i'll let the computer do the decoding, i just want to see it
16:42<Chutt>in which case, it was pretty damn stupid to have bought the -350
16:42<girliegir>that's fine, that's what i want it to do at this moment
16:43<Chutt>then follow the setup instructions in the mythtv docs.
16:43<girliegir>the 350 out is going to my projector tv
16:43<etcp>you can do:
16:43<etcp>mplayer /dev/video0
16:44<girliegir>etcp, thanks changed the 350 out back and forth a couple times and it's all good
16:44<girliegir>so what made you full of sunshine today Chutt?
16:44<etcp>ok
16:44<Chutt>people asking stupid tech support questions in here?
16:45<girliegir>so what is the room for then?
16:45<Chutt>development?
16:45<girliegir>funny, it just says topic is Http://mythtv.org, perhaps making that known would prevent user questions
16:46<josephk>doubt it
16:46<Chutt>seeing as you went ahead and asked your questions _after_ i said to ask on the mailing list
16:46<Chutt>i doubt it
16:46<etcp>you did invite the question!
16:47<Chutt>on the mailing list
16:47<etcp>your invite wasn't clear to ask on the ML...
16:47<girliegir>well, if as a developer, that's your attitude, i'd suspect you ward off quite a few from becoming a developer

16:49<PhracturedBlue>Chutt, are you around?
16:49<Chutt>etcp, the channel isn't advertised _anywhere_ as a tech support channel
16:49<engie>Most dev channels say so in the title - or have #mythtv and #mythtv-dev
16:49<Chutt>sure
16:50<etcp>chutt, sure, but when in the channel, without seeing any adverts, how would I know that?
16:50<PhracturedBlue>I have a question about the seek table: in NuppelVideoRecorder, we update the seektable on 'S' frames, but in nuppeldecoder, we update it on the first frame found in a GetFrame call if no Position Map exists.
16:50<Chutt>you wait a little bit and see what people are talking about?
16:51<etcp>I have - there's alot of tech support going on!
16:51<Chutt>phracturedblue, on the first frame found?
16:51<Chutt>where's that?
16:51<josephk>I don't know about anyone else, but I come here to complain
16:51<davatar>eh.. how about just putting "development" in the topic..
16:51<Chutt>i had it in there last year
16:51<PhracturedBlue>yeah:if (!hasFullPositionMap) (*positionMap)[lastKey / keyframedist] = currentposition;
16:51<nchip>like anyone ever reads the topics :P
16:51<Chutt>no one paid any attention to it then
16:51<Chutt>phracturedblue, isn't that in the S type, though?
16:52<PhracturedBlue>currentpoition is only set at the beginning of GetFrame
16:52<josephk>just change the channel name to #not-mythtv
16:52<etcp>josephk: I'm not here to complain at all! I'm taking the newbie viewpoint, and trying to be constructive
16:52<etcp>or change the topic to "tech support channel is over -> there"
16:52<Chutt>it looks right to me
16:52<josephk>etcp: I'm talking about me:)
16:52<etcp>;-)
16:52<Chutt>currentposition should be the beginning of that S frame
16:53<PhracturedBlue>Chutt, well it might be a bug in the transcoder, but can't NVR write an audio frame b4 the first video frame?
16:53<etcp>Anyway, said my piece - I'll shut up now! Thankyou all you lovely MythTV developers!
16:53<Chutt>true
16:54<Chutt>but, should that hurt anything?
16:54<PhracturedBlue>in which I could have: A,SV,SA,V
16:54<PhracturedBlue>and currentposition will point at the 'A' frame.
16:54<Chutt>why wouldn't it point to the SV frame?
16:55<Chutt>currentposition's updated at the beginning of each frame in ND::GetFrame
16:55<PhracturedBlue>because GetFrame always stops on the last VideoFrame....so I could have 'V,A,SV,SA,V' and GetFrame would start on that 'A' which is where currentposition would be set,
16:56<PhracturedBlue>oops.
16:56<Chutt>right, it'd read the A frame, process it
16:56<PhracturedBlue>never mind
16:56<Chutt>set currentposition again
16:56<Chutt>heh
16:56<Chutt>thought it was outside the while?
16:56<PhracturedBlue>yeah, I missed that it was in the gotvideo loop.
16:56<PhracturedBlue>grrr.
16:57<PhracturedBlue>well, then, there is a bug in the transcoder afterall, because it is setting the poition Map to the 'A' frame. guess I need to fix that.
16:57<PhracturedBlue>thx
16:57<Chutt>doesn't the transcoder just let the NVR do the position map?
16:58<PhracturedBlue>yeah, but not when doing mpeg4->mpeg4
16:58<Chutt>ah
16:58<PhracturedBlue>anyhow, this one is easy to fix at least, as we have currentposition right here.

17:05<Chutt>heh
17:05<pahli_bar>Chutt: not ready to commit yet. still working on it
17:06<davatar>for the keybindings wouldn't it be better to make tv playback/live tv different contexts? since browsemode/channel change/etc dissappear..
17:06<Chutt>davatar, i decided that that wasn't worth it
17:07<Chutt>lot of overlap
17:08<davatar>yeah, the overlap is where I'm having problems.. I thought I could get around it by assigned to same key to different actions in the same context, but only the first gets processed..
17:11<Chutt>which keys?
17:12<davatar>channelup/down and jump/ffwd/rwnd.
17:13<davatar>there is also a bug in which channelup/down is used for jump when watching pre-recorded... So after I fixed that it became impossible to get my channel buttons to do jump during pre-recorded
17:13<davatar>line 1417/1419 of tv_play.cpp
17:13<Chutt>no, it's not a bug that channel up/down is jump when it's watching a recording
17:14<davatar>well the keybinding doesn't work :)
17:14<Chutt>works here
17:15<davatar>what I meant is it doesn't work when watching a recording.. it works only in livetv mode.. you're stuck with channelup/down otherwise.
17:15<Chutt>channel up/down during a recording act as jump back/forward
17:15<Chutt>that works fine here
17:16<davatar>say for example you wanted to use a unique pair of keys for jump regardless of what you're watching, that's not possible. It's not a bug in the sense it doesn't work they way it was intended..
17:17<Chutt>there's a separate set of jump keys
17:17<davatar>..which is ineffective while watching a recording :)
17:18<Chutt>erm, no, they work fine during a recording
17:19+nofpu [~matt@host81-128-93-8.in-addr.btopenworld.com] joined #mythtv
17:19<davatar>ok.. then it is a bug. When 'if (StateIsPlaying(internalState))' JUMPFFWD/RWND are never used.
17:19<Chutt>of course it's not in that if clause
17:19<Chutt>it's in higher up in that function
17:20<Chutt>that if clause is only things for playback
17:20<Chutt>just as the if clause immediately previous to that is only things for live tv mode
17:20<Chutt>the common actions are before _that_
17:20<davatar>I see...
17:21<Octane>when setting up an external change channel command... do you need to put anything else beside the script's filename

17:53<Chutt>'course not
17:54<pahli_bar>thanks. i will put up a link to a tarball for you to test before i make any commits
17:54<Chutt>make commits whenever you want
17:55<Chutt>a release is still a little way off, so i don't mind at all if things are temporarily broken

18:32<Chutt>set the script to 'echo' or whatnot
18:32<Chutt>so it'll print out the channel number it's turning to

18:37<Chutt>oh well
18:37<Octane>lol?
18:37<Chutt>if you were using television, it'd have been because you hadn't set the 'tuneto' channel, but that's not it =)
18:37<Octane>lol :(
18:38<Chutt>dunno what to tell you
18:38<Octane>do you know off the top off your head the name of the variable that holds on that string?
18:38<Octane>i cant seem to find it in settings
18:38<Chutt>it's in the cardinput table
18:38<sfr>bitbyte: you want a svcd? only 340MB to d/l *g*
18:39<Octane>ahh
18:39<Octane>yah its fine then
18:39<Octane>change_channel.csh $1
18:39<Octane>does it append the $1?
18:41<Chutt>shouldn't have
18:41<Octane>that was me in one of my tests
18:41<Octane>inputting '13' for example, changes mythtv, displays the osd, the cahnnel info, the program info
18:41<Octane>it doesnt execute the external command
18:41<bitbyte>i got the whole hting sfr
18:41<bitbyte>i think
18:41<bitbyte>gotta take it home to try it out
18:42<pahli_bar>Octane: maybe try entering the entire path
18:42<Octane>pahli_bar: tried that
18:42<sfr>ah, i tried nuvexport today, and suddenly it worked :/.
18:43<Chutt>octane, have you run it with '--verbose channel' yet?
18:43<bitbyte>dont deete it yet plz
18:43<bitbyte>delete
18:43<bitbyte>let me make sure it works
18:43<Octane>Chutt: i have not
18:43<bitbyte>the machine i tried it on got no vid, but ut did have audio
18:44<sfr>bitbyte: ok, the svcd is on CD now anyways
18:44<Octane>ill try now
18:44<bitbyte>ok, i meant the original. not the vcd tho
18:44<bitbyte>do you still have the nuv?
18:45<DJ_Rican>ok, you guys are probably going to answer sarcastically again but, after i select my cut-points and hit X, what to do next to cut the commercials? and yes, i've search the mailing lists already... and i have the printed key.txt and mythtv documentation here... :)
18:45<sfr>bitbyte: yes, i'll keep it for a while

18:49<Octane>Chutt any ideas on what steps i should take?

18:52<Octane>it was set to 2
18:52<robbie>what are caption anyhow?
18:52<robbie>captions
18:52<Octane>robbie like for deaf people
18:52<Octane>like you have in bars
18:52<Octane>on a football game
18:52<Octane>what the announcers say
18:52<robbie>ahh
18:52<robbie>cool
18:53<pahli_bar>its nice to have captions. keep wife from waking up when you want to watch tv late at night
18:53<robbie>hehe
18:54<Octane>i guess ill email the list about my external command issue
18:55<Chutt>be best, someone else may have had the same problem
18:55<pahli_bar>hmmm.. avermedia has a new card M150
18:55<Chutt>only other thing i can tell you is to check out the source
18:55<Chutt>pahli_bar, from the specs, it looks closer to the oem pvr-250 than the m179 was
18:55<Chutt>though no one's reported one on as working/not on the ivtv list yet
18:55<pahli_bar>lot cheaper too. just 80$ at newegg
18:56<Octane>i have terribel luck with the ml though, i never get any responses, even when i do something good!
18:56<robbie>man, pvr 250 is about $450 here in .au
18:56<robbie>and 350 is $100 more
18:56<pahli_bar>450 in us dollars?
18:57<abhi>hm, in that case how much cpu would it take to encode two streams at once? manegable on an athlon xp 2500+ with 512 ram?
18:57<robbie>pahli_bar: .au $
18:57<robbie> .au = australia
18:57<pahli_bar>robbie: whats the conversion rate? us <-> au
18:57<Octane>anyone know how do to turn off the myth osd?
18:57<robbie>we use australian dollars
18:57<Octane>program osd that is
18:57<Chutt>hit escape
18:58<robbie>we are about 75cUS=$1AU
18:58<Chutt>while it's up
18:58<Chutt>and it'll go off
18:58<Octane>Chutt for good i mean
18:58<Chutt>you can't
18:58<pahli_bar>robbie: thats still verrry expensive
18:58<robbie>yes
18:58<pahli_bar>abhi: read the docs at mythtv.org
18:58<Octane>Chutt so what do people with digital cable boxes which have osd's do?
18:58<robbie>hey with the info osd while watching tv
18:59<Chutt>turn off the cable box osd
18:59<robbie>watching a recording sorry
18:59<robbie>press it once and you get position, second time and you get program info
18:59*kvandivo whistles softly to himself.
18:59<robbie>can we get press third time and osd goes away :)
18:59<robbie>like in live tv
19:00<Chutt>just hit escape to make it go away
19:00<Chutt>kvandivo, how's your code coming?
19:01<robbie>ya, however third press to make it go away would be more consistent
19:01<kvandivo>pretty good, actually.. i now have the rank selection working on my local copy.. have the 'view rankings' screen there (looks a lot like the rec priorities screen with the ability to right/left to change rank)
19:02<kvandivo>and, when a user chooses a rank for a program it adds subtitle/description info for that program to another table (which will be used later to feed the actual recommendation engine)

19:04<kvandivo>future todo once the initial version is out in the wild: look into converting the slider to the multipic icons as you had suggested

19:04<Octane>i got it! i got it!
19:04<Octane>i am such an asshat
19:04<pahli_bar>cool. wasn't somebody working on a bayesian engine for recommendations.
19:05*kvandivo points a finger at himself.
19:05<kvandivo>well, i had a rough version a few months ago..
19:05<pahli_bar>heh. nice
19:05<kvandivo>someone else sent a c program to the list a couple of months ago that did closer-to-true bayesian as a different process
19:06<kvandivo>but bayesian needs positive and negative values, which is what the ranking code will provide..
19:06<kvandivo>i just want to find the time to code to get this crap done and out there so that i can move on
19:07<pahli_bar>kvandivo: heh. time's always an issue at UC
