00:00<pahli_bar>aceat64: i don't use it. read it on the dev list that the developer (Chutt?) is not maintaining it anymore
00:00<Niqo>aceat64: because gentoo is still for the one which looks around himself
00:01<pahli_bar>pmowry: its like asking: should a wear the red jacket or the blue one!
00:01<Niqo>phali_bar: he wrote it for the users, shouldn't anyone be satisfied then?
00:01<pmowry>=)
00:01<pahli_bar>Niqo: ??
00:02<Niqo>phali_bar: nobody cares!
00:03<pahli_bar>Niqo: at least i don't
00:03<Niqo>ie: no-one's caring enough to fix it... (he wrote the main code...)...
00:03<pahli_bar>Niqo: ahh.
00:04<Niqo>and he's not even using it himself, so...
00:04<pahli_bar>Niqo: thats what ive heard
00:05<Niqo>i belive Chutt (Isaac) has a mini-itx (epia m10k)
00:06<Niqo>i bet there is plenty of features for the one that cares to fix xvmc though (clearer picture)
00:07<Niqo>because, the decoding would not be in the libavcodec anymore, but the nvidia chip (or intel) and that's got to be an enhancement
00:09<aceat64>aww mythnews doesn't allow viewing the whole story?
00:09<pahli_bar>aceat64: rss feeds only have so much info
00:09<aceat64>oh
00:09<aceat64>:(
00:09<pahli_bar>aceat64: what you are seeing is all the info it can get
00:11<ChaosExiguum>OT: opportunity landed OK
00:12<thor_>the little green men are just waiting for dark
00:12<pahli_bar>heh
00:13<ChaosExiguum>lol
00:15<aceat64>little green men? they're blue, it's just that the camera's colors are off
00:21<Niqo>;)
00:22<skywarper>is there anyway to change the installation directory?
00:22<skywarper>s/anyway/any way/
00:22<pahli_bar>skywarper: look at settings.pro
00:23<skywarper>ah, thnx!
00:23+DiMaestro [~DiMaestro@host-187-244-9-69.midco.net] joined #mythtv
00:27<Niqo>so Chutt is actually playing with his laptop still :) he has never (at least to my knowledge) been out of this channel for this long..
00:28<Niqo>he dropped in very late yesterday though (very early here)
00:29*DiMaestro beats his head onto his deask.
00:29<DiMaestro>excuse me, I just figured out something that's been bugging me for a while, and I feel my 'tard level increased by 3.
00:29<pahli_bar>amazing... some comparisons for loading a 1600x1200 jpeg image: imagemagick 0.216558s, qimage 0.183069s, imlib2 0.005131s
00:29*Niqo wonders if DiMaestro has problems inside or outside his head
00:29<DiMaestro>Both. :)
00:30<DiMaestro>I'm just installing KnoppMyth on my sk41G w/ pvr-250 and didn't have any mpeg audio.. turns out it was muted.
00:30<Niqo>;)
00:31*Niqo thinks that would be related to inside...hehe
00:31<DiMaestro>hahahaha
00:31<DiMaestro>yea, the vast empty spaces inside. :)
00:31<Niqo>why not just chop it of, ja?
00:31<DiMaestro>That would help those issues, but I fear other problems would crop up because of that.
00:32<Niqo>aha, det ville vert ille
00:32<Niqo>ups: aha, that would be bad
00:32<DiMaestro>haha, thanks. :)
00:33<DiMaestro>now just to figure our LIRC config.
00:35*Niqo wonders how one would go forth to reboot a mind (I want to do that, sad, but true)?
00:36<DiMaestro>soft or hard reboot?
00:37<Niqo>hard, but soft would do if it would work..
00:38<DiMaestro>damnit, it loses the testio_ctl mute setting on reboot.
00:38<skywarper>hard reboot probably would involve some highvoltage electronics
00:39<skywarper>that means, do not try at home
00:39<Niqo>that has nothing to do with my mind reboot, //kick DIMeaestro ;)
00:39<DiMaestro>sorry. :)
00:39<DiMaestro>Yea, good voltage should init a reboot process, but it may harm the filesystem.
00:40<skywarper>that's not a problem if you have a backup
00:40<Niqo>good sugesstion at least, and even considering the consequences
00:40<skywarper>you should always have a backup anyway
00:40<Niqo>how to recover from a failure
00:41<Niqo>when the main cpu won't actuall y work
00:42<skywarper>how much would you pay for a pvr-250 card?
00:42<DiMaestro>I paid 139 USD.
00:46<skywarper>ok
00:46<pahli_bar>skywarper: are you planning on buying retail?
00:46<skywarper>hmm.. i found a used one for 60 euro
00:47<skywarper>but i'm not sure what model it is.. he's not sure either
00:47<pahli_bar>skywarper: ebay usually has them cheaper...
00:47<skywarper>it has a remote and scart-thing
00:48<skywarper>it has FM too, can it be a PVR-350?
00:50<DiMaestro>time to sleep, g'nite all.
00:50=DiMaestro [~DiMaestro@host-187-244-9-69.midco.net] quit ("My wookie tells me to burn things.")
00:50<Niqo>skywarper: you should avoid buying used equipent (at least in my country) {, love to hear about rules in yours}?
00:50<skywarper>digood night
00:51<skywarper>Niqo: why, you mean it might be stolen?
00:51<pahli_bar>Niqo: what county would that be
00:52<skywarper>i've gotta go, bye
00:52<Niqo>Norway
00:52<Niqo>bye
00:52<Niqo>night
00:54<Niqo>skywarper: no, it might be that when you pay for the packet at the post office, it does not contain what was intented at all...
00:55+michal [~michal@203-219-28-134-bri-ts5-2600.tpgi.com.au] joined #mythtv
00:55<Niqo>offcourse this abuse is traceable in our country, it makes the customer go through a lot of legal procedures
00:55<michal>i thought i'd give it another go before i returned the keyboard.. does anyone here know if it's possible to get an ir keyboard working at the linux console via lirc?
00:56<pahli_bar>michal: usb receiver?
00:56<michal>yes
00:56<thor_>ir keyboards really suck (line of sight)
00:56<michal>via lirc though
00:56<Niqo>thor_: agree
00:56<pahli_bar>michal: then it should work as a normal keyboard. (lirc not needed/won't work)
00:57<michal>better than no keyboard at all
00:57<thor_>touche
00:57<ChaosExiguum>rf keyboards really suck (in my house) rf interference
00:57<michal>it can ONLY work via lirc.. unless i write new drivers for it (which i won't)
00:57<pahli_bar>michal: where did you get that info?
00:57<Niqo>michal: na, get a real remote
00:58<Niqo>ChaosE.: ?? like interference from what?
00:58<michal>so there's no way to get lirc to repeat keys to the linux console?
00:59<michal>i have 8 real remotes
00:59<michal>i don't like any of them
00:59<michal>i keep buying them but i can't find anything decent
00:59<ChaosExiguum>Niqo, I dont know, but I'm always having to hold the KB at odd angles or move closer or pick a new frequency to make it work happy
00:59<michal>pahli_bar: which info?
00:59<Niqo>michal: lirc sucks bigtime on repeating (my ati remote wonder sends 5 codes, and then repeats by sending x amount but lirc,, not)
00:59<pahli_bar>michal: that the keyboard will work only with lirc
01:00<michal>well i have the same problem with the remote i currently use
01:00<michal>a Loewe one
01:00<michal>the mode i use to control the pvr sends an nec code but then sends rc5 codes on repeat :/
01:00<pahli_bar>http://www.linux.org/docs/ldp/howto/Infrared-HOWTO/infrared-howto-s-keyboard-connection.html
01:01<michal>pahli_bar: because the usb transceiver only supports lirc
01:02<michal>http://www.irtrans.de/english/index.htm
01:02<Niqo>ChaosE. : that might be because of range as I have the same issue here (although i did not with my prev keyboard/mouse setup (this is for my desktop so i don't care much, but it might be that there was to much 'hacking' hoing on with the old ranges))
01:02<Niqo>s/hoing/going/
01:02<michal>the problem is it would be pointless to have the ir keyboard if i can only use the tv controls on it and not the other keys
01:04<michal>so.. anyone know of any way to repeat lirc keys to the linux console?
01:04<michal>or any way of emulating a keyboard via lirc at all
01:04<ChaosExiguum>Niqo, I figured much the same thing.. if I am close enough (3-5ft) they keyboards signal is strong enough to get past, so its works okay
01:05*Niqo thinks it's very cool that you (US) have landed successfully on mars for the second time!
01:05*ChaosExiguum wishes he had NASA TV
01:06*Niqo thinks that beagle should have made it (bah)
01:06<pahli_bar>michal: irpty?
01:07<Niqo>Chaos E. : yea, that's the ditance, strangely, it seems overcencitive to angle changes...
01:07<michal>pahli_bar: hmm.. havn't heard of that yet
01:08=czn [~czn@x1-6-00-50-fc-8d-59-ac.k227.webspeed.dk] quit (Remote closed the connection)
01:08<Niqo>michal: can't you configure the board to emit different key events?
01:10<michal>Niqo: what do you mean? i can't configure the keyboard to do anything at all.. i can use the irtrans transceiver to capture the signals it sends and assign lirc button names to those.. and that's all i can do
01:11<pahli_bar>if you follow Niqo's suggestion and fully map all the keys to keyevents, you can use it under X11 with irxevent
01:12<michal>how do you map lirc events to keyevents?
01:12<pahli_bar>michal: just like you did for myth
01:13*Niqo Everyone should remember that; Everything is possible; what matters is how fast the penguin can walk!
01:13<michal>i don't actually use myth.. but i use another pvr app that uses lirc
01:13<pahli_bar>throw michal out :)
01:14<Niqo>yea
01:14<pahli_bar>what is this general purpose support channel.
01:14<michal>lirc
01:14<michal>this is the only channel on the planet that knows anything about it
01:15<pahli_bar>whatever. read the docs for irxevent, you will find the answers there
01:15<michal>well i don't run X on the box so i don't know if it will be helpful :/
01:16<Niqo>switch to mythtv, and enable native lirc support
01:16<michal>or is the X nothing to do with X11 ?
01:16<michal>mythtv doesn't support my hardware
01:16<Niqo>bah
01:16<Niqo>does lirc support your hardware?
01:17<pahli_bar>michal: you know that there is www.lirc.org and they have mailing lists there?
01:17<michal>lirc isn't directly involved.. only lirc clients are :/
01:17<michal>the lirc server is provided by the irtrans device
01:17<Niqo>:that's called politics
01:18<michal>the lirc mailing lists are utterly useless.. still waiting for a response to soomething i asked about a year ago
01:18<Niqo> <Niqo> does lirc support your hardware?
01:18<michal>i already answered that question
01:18*pahli_bar is going to emulate the same here
01:19<Niqo>Is this the answer??: <michal> lirc isn't directly involved.. only lirc clients are :/
01:19<michal>yes. i don't use the lirc server
01:19<michal>or lirc config files
01:20<michal>i can however use lirc clients
01:20<michal>including the ones that come with lirc
01:20<Niqo>bull, lirc is a lirc daemon...anything else is called hacking (which I enjoy)
01:20<Niqo>the core of lirc that is
01:20<michal>like i said.. http://www.irtrans.de/english/index.htm
01:21<michal>i don't use the daemon
01:21<michal>something OTHER than lirc provides the daemon
01:22<michal>"To integrate IR Trans into existing environments the server software supports LIRC Clients"
01:22+czn [~czn@x1-6-00-50-fc-8d-59-ac.k227.webspeed.dk] joined #mythtv
01:23*Niqo browsed...
01:24*Niqo ...but the page was unclear, so he didn't bother
01:24=schwin97 [~schwin97@c-24-0-253-197.client.comcast.net] quit (Remote closed the connection)
01:25<michal>nothing unclear there.. it's clearly spelled out in English (and German)
01:25<ChaosExiguum>Niqo, the jist of it is that it pretends to be the lirc daemon
01:25<michal>isn't it gist?
01:25<ChaosExiguum>probably
01:25<michal>but that is the gist yes
01:25<Niqo>yea, tell me how to use the dvb-s card of www.linuxtv.org in less than 5min?
01:26<michal>download the drivers
01:26<michal>compile them
01:26<michal>load them
01:26<michal>use scan to generate a channels conf file
01:26<Niqo>and it won't wokr
01:26<michal>works for me
01:26<Niqo>irw?
01:26<michal>irw?
01:27*pahli_bar suggests the same for michal for his keyboard problem
01:27<Niqo>irw; is a program that is used for testing if the lircd daemon works
01:27<michal>i'm just wondering what this has to do with either your problem or mine :/
01:28<Niqo>so, since that program emulates the daemon, it has to work
01:28<michal>but how does irw come into the picture? it doesn't actually do anything useful
01:28<Niqo>that program beeing the messy url you directed me to
01:29<michal>irw - sends data from Unix domain socket to stdout
01:29<michal>why would i want to send data to stdout?
01:29<Niqo>irw outputs anything that is received from the lircd daemon
01:30<michal>but how do i turn that into input for a linux console?
01:30<Niqo>arg, run ./irw and you'll see
01:30<Niqo>if it works that is
01:30<michal>ie.. how do i get irkbd_l followed by irkbd_s followed by irkbd_return to generate ls on the console followed by a carriage return
01:30<michal>and the resulting listing
01:31<michal>i KNOW the lirc daemon emulation works.. i've been using it for months
01:31<Niqo>what?
01:32<ChaosExiguum>michal, you could write a program to do just that
01:32<Niqo>if you know the lirc source, you should have figured this out by now (I did with my ati remote, a bug in the source)
01:32<michal>in theory i could.. but in practice i doubt it could do it in the time i could allocate to it.. there would be a lot of reading about how keyboard input under linux works necessary first
01:33<Niqo>hu? just watch and learn
01:33<ChaosExiguum>you may be able to hack up one of the existing input drivers rather quickly, I dont know for sure though
01:33<Niqo>you have some cells working right?
01:33<michal>i don't know the lirc source because i've had no need to.. but if i knew how to write a program that could echo keypresses to linux then i'd be almost all of the way there
01:34<Niqo>that's what the debugging options in lirc is fore
01:34<michal>even a program that could do essentially "keypress l" and send that eypress to the console as if it were a real keypress would solve all my problems
01:34<pahli_bar>michal: i suggest that instread of wasting your time here... get going with it
01:35<Niqo><Niqo> that's what the debugging options in lirc is for
01:36<michal>well at this stage it doesn't look like i'll even have the time to start.. today is almost over, tommorow is out, and tuesday is the last chance for me to return the keyboard if i need to.. so i won't take a $100 risk on what i will very likely never have the time to do (it took me 2 monehts to find the time to teach my system the keys on the remote)
01:36<michal>considering that ii don't use lirc the debugging options in lirc don't really interest me
01:36<Niqo><Niqo> that's what the debugging options in lirc is for
01:37<michal>and a ferrari is a great car.. but what has that got to do with this?
01:37<Niqo>you really dont care to listen, just nag!!!!
01:37<Niqo><Niqo> that's what the debugging options in lirc is for
01:38<michal>what are the lirc debugging options for? debugging programs which are NOT lirc?
01:38<Niqo>what is linux for: the community; everyone contributes, if you don't care to do that, fine, bye
01:38<Niqo><Niqo> that's what the debugging options in lirc is for
01:38<michal>don't be a tool. repeating something stupid doesn't make it intelligent.
01:38<Niqo><Niqo> that's what the debugging options in lirc is for
01:39<pahli_bar>michal: get the hint and leave...
01:39<Niqo><Niqo> that's what the debugging options in lirc is for
01:39<michal>i'm quite happy with having the retard repeat himself
01:39<Niqo><Niqo> that's what the debugging options in lirc is for
01:40<ChaosExiguum>michal, #mythtv is not a freebie support channel, remember that you are lucky to get any help considering you are not using mythtv even
01:41<pahli_bar>its not even a user support channel. its "supposed" to be a dev channel
01:41<michal>ChaosExiguum: doesn't mean i have to put up with retards who repeat something juvenile despite having the reasons it's not relevant explained to them in a civilised manner
01:42*Niqo ; Yay, NASA put it's second probe safely...
01:42<Niqo>who had the bot control again? either me or him
01:43*Niqo ; nice wokr
01:43*Niqo ; to bad our beagle got cratered ;)
01:48<ChaosExiguum>its bed time here in EST zone (1am-ish), goodnight
01:48<Niqo>gnight
01:49aceat64is now known as aceat64`away
01:50<michal>ugh.. i think i had better give up on the keyboard anyway.. the signals it sends aren't consistent and change totally depending on how long the keys are pressed.. problem solved :/
01:51<Niqo>bah, that sucks
01:51<michal>amusingly enough it's designed for a set top box which runs linux :/
01:52<Niqo>actually, I care with out, but yet again, not...if you see me...I tried...you where kinda rude...
01:53<michal>you were also rude screaming about lirc debug options whne i wasn't even running lirc
01:53+Zman [~someone@dsl-lchp-1.nucleus.com] joined #mythtv
01:54<michal>anyway.. the keyboard is for this thing.. http://player.teac.com.au/
01:54<Niqo>then again, you where actually advertising very well that lirc was a part of it at least
01:54<Zman>Anyone get their PVR 350 and TV out working I am having a hell of a time...
01:54<michal>no. not a part.. it simple emulated the server part so that it eas transparent to lirc clientds
01:56<Zman>can any one offer any suggestions?
01:56<Niqo>Zman: try one of these: http://www.gossamer-threads.com/archive/MythTV_C2/Users_F11/ --- http://www.gossamer-threads.com/perl/mailarc/gforum.cgi?guest=2130778&t=search_engine&do=search_results&search_forum=all&search_string=pvr+350+remote&search_type=AND&search_fields=sb&search_time=&search_user_username=&mh=25
01:56<pahli_bar>Zman: i suggest an apple in the morning.
01:56<pahli_bar>sorry.
01:57<pahli_bar>Zman: http://www-isl.mach.uni-karlsruhe.de/~hi93/myth/mythtv_debian_epia_pvr350_walkthrough
01:57<Zman>Thanks I believe I have tried those sites.. I can partially get it working except the menu is on the PC and when viewing a recorded video that will show up on my tv
01:57<Zman>I am partly there but can not figure out what else needs to be done..
01:59<Niqo>did you try my urls?
02:00<Niqo>sorry, michal: i can't figure it out
02:00<Zman>I am marking them down Niqo some of them look familar, but will go through them and see if they shed some light

02:12<pigeon>hmm, this might sound dumb, but how do i stop a recording?
02:12<pigeon>stopping a recording started with instant recording option.
02:16<Niqo>go to the tv/guide screen and press 'I' and select 'stop recording'
02:16<pahli_bar>or just delete the recording

02:18<pigeon>there isn't a 'stop recording' when i press i
02:18<Niqo>then it have not started recording...
02:19<pigeon>hmm
02:19<pigeon>but it is still recording...
02:19<Niqo>you should press i on the show that's recording..

02:20<pigeon>hmm, the status is not "Not Recording" for that slot, but the backend is still recording it.
02:22<Niqo>hm, wiered, could you provide a backtrace?
02:22<pigeon>of...?
02:22<Niqo>the backend
02:23<pigeon>hmm, gdb it now you mean?
02:23<Niqo>would mess up your recording..but..
02:23<pigeon>it's ok.
02:23<Niqo>yea, gdb <pid>
02:24<Niqo>and then it says it has terminated (or so the tasj)
02:24<pigeon>hmm there are quite a lot of threads...

02:25<Niqo>do a: 'thread apply all bt full', and post a detailed description to mythtv-dev
02:26<Niqo>just to have all bases covered
02:26<pigeon>ok
02:26<pigeon>and what in particular I should be looking for in the trace?
02:26<pigeon>16 threads i have here
02:26<Niqo>dunno really, i have not seen it yet ;)
02:27<Niqo>yea,sounds somewhat right
02:27<Niqo>(much ay)
02:28<pigeon>hmm according to the recorded table, its end time is coming soon.
02:28<pigeon>instant recording by default records one hour?
02:30<Niqo>instant recording should record the current program
02:31<pigeon>and will never stop?
02:32<pigeon>what about if i stop the backend now
02:33<pigeon>well
02:33<pigeon>that seems to stop the recording.

02:44<pigeon>hmm one more question. is there a way to transcode/save what's in the live tv buffer into a recording?
02:44<Niqo>THIS NEEDS TO BE RESOLVED BEFORE RELEASE: After about an hour of watching LiveTV, there is some skipping/pausing. (mail for detailed info)
02:46<Niqo>pigeon: like when you are watching livetv and would have wanted to record the show that's in the buffer by pressing 'r', no, but i've thought about implementing it
02:47<pigeon>ok
02:47<pigeon>that's good.
02:47<pigeon>i was trying to record this tv ad.
02:47<pigeon>and i wasn't recording it.
02:47<pigeon>and it's just shown on tv.
02:47<pigeon>and it was still in the livetv buffer.
02:48<Niqo>you could go to the epg with 'm' and then press 'r' to record from now I think
02:49<Niqo>yea, would have been nice to at least be able to save the buffer...
02:50<Niqo>kinda, press 'r' and get a 'edit bar' (as the commercial one, if you've seen it), and edit roughly where you could record from

08:58<ceed>alright this is really strange, channel switching really is giving me a headache, as i said, i set cardinput.externalcommand to /usr/bin/channelchange.sh, which looks like that:
08:58<ceed>#!/bin/bash
08:58<ceed>echo $0 $1 >> /tmp/changechannel
08:58<ceed>/usr/bin/v4lctl setchannel $1
08:59<ceed>actually it's changechannel.sh, but nevermind
08:59<ceed>so when i try to switch a channel, the correct channel is shown in /tmp/changechannel, but the channel simply won't change
09:00<ceed>when i just copy & paste the last line of /tmp/changechannel, and execute it, it bloody changes the channel
09:00<ceed>i'm not getting this, some permission problem?
09:00<skywarper>are you sure you should use the second argument?
09:01<ceed>yes, $0 is the executable
09:01<ceed>the script being called
09:01<ceed>here is an example of /tmp/changechannel
09:01<ceed>/usr/bin/changechannel.sh SE16
09:01<ceed>/usr/bin/changechannel.sh E2
09:01<ceed>/usr/bin/changechannel.sh E10
09:02<ceed>and now when i just copy & paste one of those lines, and execute it, the channel is changed
09:03<skywarper>ah ok
09:04<skywarper>seems strange
09:23<ceed>yes, that's a strange problem, indeed

11:03<servo>well I fudged up mythtv last night *sigh*. I though I would experiment by running mjpeg instead of standard v4l; which didn't work... So I set the changes back but mythtv didn't like that so I got that horrible fuzzy pictre again *sigh*. So now i'm following the same steps as before; killing off my database; and starting a fresh one :-)
11:04<servo>but xmltv is slow :-(...

11:12<servo>good idea Peit! I'll just back up the database! whoot
11:13<servo>that'll save me a load of time
11:13<ceed>why is it always me with the strange problems?
11:17<servo>I'm getting the strange problems also :-(
11:17<servo>but im still fighting
11:18<servo>it seems to me that their is some bug with how the database is updated and how the backend read data... For example I changed from v4l to mjpeg; it didn't work so I changed back to mjpeg and v4l as it was normaly and it didn't come back to normal as it was suppose to =-(.
11:18<servo>there*
11:19<servo>I restarted mysqld, the backend and frontend. It still didn't change

11:22<servo>would that be needed? If you use mythtv as a tv; then when your done watching it you could just turn off the tv.
11:22<servo>then again; doesn't the normal linux screensaver over draw on mythtv?
11:23<Peit|Home>hmm myth on one box is showing the channel ames in the epg, the other isn't
11:24<Matt>servo, just in case you're not watching, and forget to turn the tv off
11:24<pmowry>but is xscreensaver "TV aware"? dont want it to blank out in the middle of a game.
11:24<Matt>and the normal screensaver would happily draw overeverything
11:25<Matt>just noticed my DVD player has a screensaver when it's sat at the main screen
11:25<servo>good point
11:26<servo>hmm
11:26<servo>you could tailer a screensaver to turn on during low cpu usage?
11:26<Matt>I'm sure someone else has thought about it :&)
11:26<servo>or idle
11:26<Matt>but what if your box does other things :&)
11:26<servo>lol
11:26<Matt>I run mythtv on my desktop
11:27<servo>what is mythtv written in?
11:27<Matt>C++
11:27<servo>awsome
11:27<Matt>it shouldn't be difficult to knock up a screensaver for it, I just don't have the time to work on much
11:28<servo>so you could create something in mythtv that would start a counter when option screen it loaded; so after a certain given time it would start an x-screensaver
11:29<servo>I'll have a break off of school in a few weeks; I'll see if I can do anything :-)
11:31<pmowry>Are there any packages for mythtv on cygwin or do you have to build from CVS?
11:32<pmowry>I'mbeing lazy this morning.
11:32<Matt>if I'm going to do anything mythtv related - it's going to be something to grab uk listings from bleb.org
11:38<Peit|Home>ah, Matt: have you successfully migrated to rt? i had to drop the channel db and restart it
11:40<Matt>I just tweaked the channel db by hand
11:40<Matt>all you have to update are the xmltvids
11:41<Matt>then I had to delete all the data in the program table before it'd update it properly
11:41<Matt>but it seems to be working now
11:41<Peit|Home>ah,.. i had a lot of channels missing..
11:41<Matt>I only use the normal 5 :&)
11:41<Peit|Home>heh, NTL cable here, too many channels
11:42<Peit|Home>there's a site that does rss feeds of most of their content, i don't know if anyone has gotten in contact with them

12:13<servo>now to work on my sound lag issue. Thor told me to mute line in and set it to capture. but I don't understand that. (I can do it) but why? By line in does that mean the channel that the tuner is on? Because I got 5 line in's ;-) so I need to know exaclty why we are muting line in (so I can mute the right one)
12:15=choenig [~choenig@pD952C144.dip.t-dialin.net] quit (Remote closed the connection)
12:15<servo>ahh but from reading the documentation the audio goes through an ADC... so I must mute the line that has the tunner on it
12:16<servo>makes sense or far
12:18<o_cee>yeah, the doc is a good thing to read.
12:27<McQuaid>yeah servo mute the line in that your tuner uses
12:28<McQuaid>otherwise your hearing the live audio as well, which will seem like lag
12:28<McQuaid>but you only want to hear the audio from the recorded stream
12:29<McQuaid>for ex on my system my mobo only had 1 onboard internel connector for the cdrom, so i've daisychained my cdrom and tuner to the mobo
12:29<McQuaid>so for me it's cdrom i mute and set as the active record device.
12:30<McQuaid>but it would be nice if mythtv could mute the selected line for recording and unmute it on exit, as now lauching other apps like tvtime i have to manually unmute it again

13:41<bar11>Hi, wasn't there supposed to be some kind of HW support for the cle266 (epia) mpeg decoder in mythtv 0.13 or am I mistaken?
13:44<Peit|Home>there was in cvs at some point, but i don't know what happened to it
13:45<bar11>Ok, I see.
13:46<bar11>Using gentoo (with a system compiled for the HW), the epia was just able to play back full res. mpeg2 streams. Using redhat (compiled for i368 I reckon), it's no-where close to being able to play the streams.. sux big.

14:56<dmitry>hey guys.. any idea why "livetv" gives me a blank screen and causes my load to go crazy really quickly?
14:56<dmitry>i've looked at the guides/manuals and i can't see anything obvious
14:57<dmitry>and im using an older wintv with bt878
14:57<o_cee>you probably don't have your sound setup
14:57<dmitry>hmm.
14:58<dmitry>when livetv starts it tells me it can't open /dev/dsp, even though it's readable by mythtv user

14:59<o_cee>probably somehting else using /dev/dsp then
14:59<Matt>make sure something like esd or arts hasn't grabbed it
14:59<Peit|Home>does anyone know if i can tell myth to put the sound out through the system soundcard, and the video through the pvr-350
14:59<dmitry>dsp is the sound out device right?
14:59<Peit|Home>(which i believe mplayer can do)
14:59<o_cee>using the tvout of the 350 it isn't possible
15:00<dmitry>i can start xmms and hear music no problem
15:00<Peit|Home>o_cee: is that technical limitation, or is it not possible because someine hasn't coded it to do that yet?
15:01<Peit|Home>i'm guess the latter if mplayer can aparently done it

15:07<rOOfus>so any ideas on a non tuner capture card to use?
15:09<o_cee>you guys could also go to #mythtv-users and discuss these kind of things, so we'll keep this channel for the developers, like it's supposed to.

21:52<dmitry>gore: sure
21:54<gore>Well, seems I've got everything installed, fetched the listings and all. Program guide shows everything, when I start up livetv it works like a charm (pause, fast forward, etc etc). But I can't change channels, and the HUD doesn't display prog info.
21:54<gore>xawtv works flawlessly, though. Not using any remote or anything, just keyboard.

21:57<John-Kimble>hello all.
21:58<John-Kimble>just wondering how well supported is directFB with mythtv ?
21:58<John-Kimble>anyone used it ?
21:58<dmitry>gore: are you sure you ran mythfilldatabase?
21:59<dmitry>do you get program grid when you hit m while watching live tv, or when in the menu?
21:59<gore>Yeah. If I use the program guide, everything shows up properly. Just poking around in MySQL everything looks fine.
22:00<gore>Best I can guess is it's aproblem with the tuner, but it's a brooktree card and the tuner works fine with xawtv, so I'm somewhat at a loss.
22:00<John-Kimble>ianyone used DirectFB with mythtv ??
22:00<cmorgan>directfb?
22:00<dmitry>John-Kimble: not me
22:00<cmorgan>i've used ivtv-fb with myth
22:00<gore>Log files and console yield absolutely nothing of any use to me, I'm up against a wall. Heh.
22:00<dmitry>gore: strange, im not sure.
22:01<John-Kimble>DirectFrameBuffer
22:01<John-Kimble>VDR supports it and i heard Mythtv Now does too
22:01<dmitry>gore: have you tried hitting "I" in live view mode?
22:02<gore>Yields a blank HUD, shows only the time.
22:03<John-Kimble>ok next question how well is DVB-t support with mythtv ?
22:03<gore>But M shows a fully populated channel listing.
22:03<John-Kimble>anyone in Aussie using it ?

22:06<dmitry>i get that too
22:06<gore>Well, whatever xawtv is doing to tune is working, but whatever myth is doing isn't...
22:07<gore>Trying to change channels just cases the buffer to clear and the screen to flicker momentarily, and show an empty HUD.
22:07<gore>Thinking I should just buy a Hauppage anyway :)
22:09<dmitry>...so you can't channel at all with mythtv?
22:11<dmitry>if you cant' change channels that means your channels list hasn't been populated properly.. rerun mythfilldatabase.. and maybe tv_grab whatever

23:34<kvandivo>and another, and another..
23:34<John-Kimble>the via chipset bt* doesnt support WSS
23:34<Morph>Chutt2: rats :) im using the X 4.4 driver with libddmpeg...it works fine if I record something and then play it back later but if I go to watch livetv, it'll play for about 10 minutes then crash. guys in #ivtv-dev thought it was that myth wasnt reading the video in fast enough since Im seeing alots of DMA messages in the logs.
23:34<Chutt2>yeah, i saw that
23:35<Chutt2>morph, if the system's crashing, it's ivtv's fault
23:35<Chutt2>try upping the recording thread's priority, though
23:35<Chutt2>if you think that's it
23:35<John-Kimble>thats not it.
23:37<pigeon>wow... perl
23:37<John-Kimble>I've been testing out VDR/mythtv on the EPIA stuff for some time now, and upping thread priority doesnt fix the problem.
23:38<Chutt2>the ivtv driver is just really fragile to dma problems
23:39<John-Kimble>seems thats way.
23:39<John-Kimble>anyone here done much Tv chipset comparision tests?
23:39<cmorgan>add to that the via issues...
23:39<John-Kimble>I've had very promising qualities iwth the g550+DirectFB with vdr
23:39<Chutt2>cmorgan, via issues _are_ dma problems =)
23:39<John-Kimble>OSD looks great
23:39<John-Kimble>aswell as picture
23:39<Chutt2>pvr-350
23:39<Chutt2>perfect quality output
23:40<thor_>for an analog medium
23:40<John-Kimble>Chutt: im talking Digital.
23:40<Chutt2>err, so?
23:40<John-Kimble>pvr-350 is analogue reciver no ?
23:40<cmorgan>Chutt2: ahh yes, i was referring to the irq's that just hang the machine. maybe someone will find a kernel way to work around those issues at some point.
23:40<Chutt2>if you're recording with dvb, it's just mpeg
23:40<Chutt2>and can be displayed on the pvr-350
23:41<Chutt2>and if you're using vdr, you don't belong in this channel, so... :p
23:41<John-Kimble>In aussie, there is no Dvb-t cards with inbuilt mpeg decoders
23:41<John-Kimble>That suppports both VHF/UHF
23:42<John-Kimble>Yeah i know, i wannting to use Mythtv
23:42<thor_>Chutt, have we already gone through the idea of using Amazon web services for cover art?
23:42<Chutt2>thor, nope
23:42<John-Kimble>probably with g550+DirectFB
23:42<thor_>had a little look at their kit today, seems very straightforward
23:42<Chutt2>isn't there a 1 query per second limitation?
23:42<thor_>per second, per application
23:43<thor_>if you distribute an app, each app can only do a query a second
23:43<Chutt2>do users need to sign up?
23:43<John-Kimble>anyone know the dude who wrote the directFB support into myth or have his email ?
23:43<thor_>I don't think so ... though I have not quite gotten that far
23:43<Chutt2>john-kimble, search the -dev list for it
23:44<John-Kimble>k
23:45<thor_>if there were a MythBuyNewDVDsWithYourOneClickCredentials module that funneled people to Amazon from their TVs, I suspect they(Amazon)'d be mightly happy
23:46<Chutt2>eh
23:46<thor_>if we just did nothing but pulled cover art, I'm sure the cert would get invalidated fairly quickly
23:47<cmorgan>could jsut pull it from the webpage itself
23:47<thor_>but the services interface will not change (at least will not break)
23:47<cmorgan>yeah
23:48<cmorgan>can you trade cover art?
23:48<thor_>anyway, just thinking out loud ... busy with other stuff in any case .... but I'll put it on a postit note somewhere
23:48<pigeon>hmm how does mythtv know which profile for transcoding to use?
23:48<Chutt2>there's only one profile for each type of recording
23:49<John-Kimble>I've been working on implementing windows client for streaming media libraries over the network, is ther much interest in this ?
23:49<John-Kimble>to a mythtv box that is.
23:49<thor_>uhm, VideoLan?
23:50<John-Kimble>No.
23:50<Morph>hmm..
23:50<Chutt2>there's a win32 port using cygwin
23:50<John-Kimble>Its a windows client that you can add shared content ie movies/Mp3's, which mythtv can stream.
23:51<thor_>windows _server_ ?
23:51<John-Kimble>no.
23:51<Morph>Chutt2: can you use the decoder on the 350 for helping in DVD player too or is it strictly the video coming in from the 350?
23:52<Morph>er DVD playback.
23:52<Chutt2>morph, far as i know, it's good for any non-hdtv mpeg2 file
23:52<John-Kimble>sortof like a local NFS mount made easy
23:52<Chutt2>ie, nothing too high of a resolution
23:52<Morph>hmm..
23:52<Chutt2>morph, it doesn't do ac3 decoding, though
23:52<John-Kimble>So users can have there movies on the network and they show up in mythv under movies or mp3's with the images and descriptions
23:52<Chutt2>john-kimble, like a smb share?
23:52<Morph>Chutt2: ah okay..
23:52<John-Kimble>Chutt: yeah
23:52<thor_>so, windows _server_ ? (myth is client) ?
23:52<Chutt2>that anyone can setup without any special software?
23:53<John-Kimble>yep
23:53<John-Kimble>right now im porting it to myth
23:53<Chutt2>so, er, why the need for your client program?
23:53<John-Kimble>ive been using it for vdr.
23:53<John-Kimble>Chutt: basically, its just a gui frontent to easly share movies/mp3 to the mythtv box
23:54<John-Kimble>So users can add tere divx collection and makeup description/images per movie like myth can do now, but stream to the box without it knowing the diff.
23:54<Chutt2>doesn't windows already have a gui to configure network shares?
23:54<John-Kimble>yes
23:55<John-Kimble>this is to make it easyer for the non-tech savvy's
23:55<John-Kimble>out there.
23:55<Chutt2>i don't see a need for that, since you're not describing anything that can't be done without it
23:55<thor_>when you say "stream", is it presenting itself as a mytbackend (port and protocol), or are we just talking about a network file system?
23:56<Chutt2>perhaps i'm just dense
23:56<John-Kimble>backend.
23:57<thor_>that would be cool
23:57<John-Kimble>me and a team of ppl have been working on a PVR prototype for some time, and basically its software we have written, that allows a stupid user to select his movies/mp3's much like say kazzaa
23:57<John-Kimble>write descriptions or grab em from imdb
23:57<John-Kimble>also add images, and it will share them to mythtv without config
23:57<John-Kimble>so users can stream there content to the mythtv without hassel.
23:58<Chutt2>how is that _any_ different than a smb share?
23:58<John-Kimble>Chutt: it requires no config.
23:58<Chutt2>network shares require no config
23:58<Netslayer>oh so u run it on windows and it streams to myth?
23:59<John-Kimble>Netslayer: yeah
23:59<Netslayer>neat
23:59<John-Kimble>well VDR right now
23:59<Chutt2>seriously
23:59<John-Kimble>porting it to Myth
23:59<Chutt2>how is that any different than a smb share?
23:59<thor_>ah
