00:02<Morph>QDateTime::fromString: Parameter out of range
00:02<Morph>hmm.
00:02<Chutt>morph, you'll get that when there's no program data
00:03<Morph>okay..
00:03<Morph>and it wont change channels until there is data?
00:03<Chutt>it should change channels once the channel table is populated
00:03<Chutt>it'll just complain with that error message if the program table is empty
00:03<Chutt>captain_murdoch, dunno
00:04<Morph>okay. thanks.
00:04<Chutt>captain_murdoch, i can see both ways not working
00:04<Captain_Murdoch_>what do you thinkn about changing it to use the video window aspect ratio if the frontend is running in a window. (the RunFrontendInWindow setting is true)
00:04<Chutt>is there a toggle for the aspect ratio code, though?
00:05<Chutt>could just be a setting, or, i guess that could work =)
00:05<Captain_Murdoch_>you mean the 4:3 vs 16:9 key?
00:05<Chutt>i thought there was a setting to totally ignore the display aspect
00:05<Captain_Murdoch_>currently it sets it according to the window width/height in mm. I'll check to see if I see anything that ignores the aspect.
00:07<Chutt>ah
00:08<Chutt>it's if xinerama is enabled, it ignores the display size in mm
00:08*Morph curses digital cable and its hundreds to channels
00:08<Captain_Murdoch_>currently it calls X functions to get the display width & height in MM and if either of those are 0 or if it's using xinerama then it uses the video aspect.
00:08<Chutt>i wouldn't have a problem with adding a check for the frontend running in a window to that test
00:09<overridex>kind of a dumb/weird question - but is there anyway to add a delay to mythtv changing the channel? so that it calls the change-channel script and waits a second before it rebuffers and stuff, to give the set-top box a chance to change?
00:09<Captain_Murdoch_>ok. I'll set it to make sure it works. I don't see how noone has complained because it seems like anyone with a non 4:3 display would have a problem running windowed.
00:24<Captain_Murdoch_>that fixes my problem, but I still think something is weird with the aspect ratio code. the black bars it was making were too large. from videooutbase.cpp "n.b. assumes aspect < 1.4 is 4:3 and > 1.4 is 16:9; other aspect ratios wil cause incorrect results" that's probably why...
00:26<Captain_Murdoch_>yep, it's shrinking the image as if my display was 16:9. black bar widths match. even hoses it up when I run full-screen.
00:27<McQuaid>i have the access denied using pass NO error after updating to .14
00:28<McQuaid>i've been googling on this and see quite a few other people with the problem but not a clear answer
00:28<McQuaid>can someone explain to me how to fix this?
00:45<FryGuy>is the mythweb author here right now?

00:54<FryGuy>ok I'll just post this to the list then
00:57<kslater>location of stuff change in .14?
00:58<kslater>I haven't done a cvs update since 12/31/03, but I read the commits list. Seems like it can't find the other plugins now..
01:08<Captain_Murdoch_>when did you sync up?

02:40<Uberbot>Can anyone tell me how mythtv looks on a widescreen?
02:40<Uberbot>Will I have "widescreen capability?"
02:40<o_cee>no
02:40<o_cee>not in the menus
02:40<o_cee>you need to use something like Superwide (Toshiba)
02:40<Uberbot>Will I be able to play wide dvd streams?
02:40<o_cee>yeah, why not
02:41<Uberbot>Assuming a Haupauge 350.
02:41<Uberbot>(sp?)
02:41<o_cee>havent tried it
02:41<o_cee>but there's a patch floating around for mplayer
02:41<hadees>hey i got irrecord to work but now irw says it can't connect to socket and so does irxevent
02:41<Uberbot>Good enough for me.
02:41<o_cee>Uberbot: :)
02:41<Uberbot>So, it won't look hideous on the wide screen.
02:42<hadees>anyone know what i am missing?
02:42<o_cee>Uberbot: nah
02:42<RroetZzZz>moin
02:42RroetZzZzis now known as Rroet
02:42<Uberbot>Good.
02:42<Uberbot>My WIFE wants a pvr..... <grin>
02:42<o_cee>:)
02:42*o_cee is away: breakfast
02:42<Uberbot>Any pointers for a nice chassis?
02:42*Slaytanic is also having breakfast, not with o_cee though :)
02:43<Uberbot>Want it to look like a stereo component.
02:43<Slaytanic>Uberbot: Antec Overture is pretty nice, so is Asus pundit.
02:43<Slaytanic>Check www.HTPCnews.com
02:43<Uberbot>Cool. I'll look into these pointers.
02:44<Uberbot>Thanx.
02:44<hadees>Uberbot: http://www.atechfabrication.com/products/HTPC_case.htm
02:44<Uberbot>Gotta be BLACK!
02:44<hadees>the nicest htpc avalible
02:44<hadees>however not cheap
02:44<Uberbot>I'm looking....
02:45<hadees>they also sell it in black
02:45<Uberbot>Damned nice chassis!
02:45<o_cee>my homemade case looks better and is defenately more quiet
02:45<[DOA]Tarkie>god, you aint kiddin
02:46<Uberbot>$375 kinda hurts though.
02:46<hadees>o_cee: how do you know it is more quiet?
02:46<Uberbot>Tell me about your homemade case.
02:46<o_cee>hadees: i see at least 4 fans, i have two small ones.
02:46<hadees>there are only two fans in the case
02:46<Uberbot>I don't even need local drives.....
02:47<hadees>and small fans at that
02:47<o_cee>hadees: as i said, i see 4 fans there
02:47<o_cee>Uberbot: i'll fix some pictures some day
02:47<Uberbot>I might have one hard drive.
02:48<Uberbot>I can't wait. I built the stereo rack. I can probably manage a case. <grin>
02:48<o_cee>the hardware in that case isn't really linux friendly :/
02:48<Uberbot>Oh?
02:48<Uberbot>The plasma display?
02:49<o_cee>Radeon and Holo3d
02:49+Slayt0nic [~you@h160n1fls34o930.telia.com] joined #mythtv
02:50<Uberbot>Huh? I thought it was just a chassis.
02:50<hadees>o_cee: the fan on left is from the powersupply and the slot on far right is a passive heat sync for a video card

02:50<hadees>sink
02:50<Uberbot>Ok.
02:52<hadees>Uberbot: if your good with soder i heard of a few people who bought broken recivers off ebay and hooked up the buttons on the front to thier computer
02:53<hadees>Uberbot: also a good place to look for cases is avsforum.com in thier htpc forums
02:53<Uberbot>I can solder.
02:53<Uberbot>I can also cut steel, plastic, etc.
02:54<Uberbot>But if I build a case, I don't want it to look "homemade." You know what I mean?
02:56=_Da5iD_ [~Joey@68.119.235.50.conroe.tx.charter.com] quit ("Leaving")
02:56<hadees>Uberbot: try a broken reciever and see if you can do anything with it
02:56<Uberbot>So, what types of functionality did they create for the buttons on these broken receivers?
02:56<Uberbot>Fishing for ideas.
02:57<hadees>well most people use windows, i think they did like change channels and volume
02:57<hadees>just the basics incase you can't find your remote
02:57<Uberbot>Ok. Might be able to hack an old keyboard....
02:58<Uberbot>I was thinking of a wireless kbd/mouse.....
02:58<Uberbot>Any thoughts?
02:58<hadees>i would use a keyboard emulator thing, i can't remember the name of it
02:58<hadees>they use them for mame cabinets
02:58<Uberbot>Just hack a keyboard so that the >> button results in a "p" being sent to the computer?
02:59<Uberbot>For example.
02:59<hadees>i know lots of mame cabinets do that also but from my reading up on that topic there have been quite a few problems with keys being sent all of a sudden
02:59<hadees>for no reason
03:01<Uberbot>That's why I ask otherwise stupid sounding questions. Thanx.
03:01<Uberbot>Ok. sounds like wireless kbd/mouse.
03:01<Uberbot>My wife got me a multi-function remote control for xmas. Has a pvr icon.
03:01<Uberbot>How likely am I to get ircd to work with this new remote?
03:02<hadees>i say fairly likely
03:02<Uberbot>Really? I barely got it to compile on my laptop. Configuring it was.... ugly.
03:02<Uberbot>Was hoping to use my laptop for the ULTIMATE remote.
03:03<Uberbot>Never got it to work. I was kinda brain-dead, tho.
03:03<hadees>well i am waiting for the thor's mfd to get better and then i might take a crack at writing a plugin for netremote.org
03:04<Uberbot>thor's mfd?
03:04<hadees>i think it is called mfd
03:04<Uberbot>I'm looking at netremote now. Never heard of it.
03:04<hadees>well it is windows only
03:05<Uberbot>I'm trying to get away from windoze. My wife uses it for Quicken.
03:05<Uberbot>Otherwise, we are a Linux shop.
03:05<Uberbot>Oh, and my 3 year old has a '95 machine.
03:05<Uberbot>But that doesn't count. <grin>
03:06<Uberbot>Any issues with trying to read/write media from the pvr to a fileserver over the network?
03:06<Uberbot>100Mb switched, at least.
03:06=Slaytanic [~you@h160n1fls34o930.telia.com] quit (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
03:06<hadees>i haven't had problems
03:07<Uberbot>Wow. This is good news. Since the mb's I'm going to buy have a GigE port on them.... <evil grin>
03:07<hadees>what do you plan on doing?
03:07<Uberbot>Video, mp3,
03:07<hadees>also i don't know if you know or not you can slipt up mythtv now, into a backend and a frontend
03:07<Uberbot>I'd like to record a show at night and watch it the next day, for example.
03:08<hadees>so if you want you could really use just an xbox as the frontend
03:08<Uberbot>Really?
03:08<hadees>and but the noisier backend that does all the recording somewhere else
03:08<o_cee>xbox is noisy as hell
03:08<o_cee>if you don't replace the fan
03:08<Uberbot>I don't mind a bit of noise.
03:09<o_cee>while watching tv?
03:09=sfr [~sfr@p508ABF75.dip.t-dialin.net] quit ("Client exiting")
03:09<Uberbot>I'll deal with that as it becomes an issue.
03:09<Uberbot>I think I want some horsepower near the TV, though.
03:09<Uberbot>May want to play vid games, for example.
03:09<hadees>o_cee: you think the xbox is to noisy, i know i can hear it but never been a problem
03:09<o_cee>and no, you won't need gigabit ethernet for watching tv, 10mbit is fine
03:10<o_cee>hadees: mine is very loud.. maybe there's different versions of them
03:10<Uberbot>This is good to know.
03:10<Uberbot>I was just worried that the vid would skip if it ran out of bandwidth.
03:10<o_cee>yeah but you don't use that high bitrate anyway
03:10<o_cee>on the video
03:10<Uberbot>I really don't know what the backplane speed is on my switch.
03:10<Uberbot>I see.
03:11<Uberbot>I was thinking about 1Gb an hour?
03:11<Uberbot>Close?
03:11<hadees>Uberbot: does your laptop have tvout?
03:11<Uberbot>S-vid. Yes.
03:11<o_cee>you do the math.. 100mbit video for example.. would be.. 4,5gb / hour i think
03:11<Uberbot>Point taken.
03:11<o_cee>no, 45 gb
03:11<o_cee>:)
03:12<Uberbot>video is 45Gb / hour?
03:12<hadees>Uberbot: you can put mythtv-frontend on your laptop and then any tv without a mythtv frontend in your house you can just hook your laptop up to
03:12<o_cee>so 1-2gb/hour is no problem over 10mbit
03:12<o_cee>Uberbot: if you'd record at 100mbit
03:12<o_cee>wich you can't anyway
03:12<Uberbot>I mis-understood. Clear now.
03:12<o_cee>:)
03:12*o_cee is away: work
03:13<o_cee>does a fanless epia handle mpeg2 without using the cle266?
03:13<Uberbot>Hadees, in that case, I could just use the laptop front end to control the backend without plugging into the TV, right?
03:13<o_cee>Uberbot: the backend has the tv-tuners
03:13<o_cee>and the hd's
03:14<Uberbot>Yup. So I could install the front end on all of the machines in the house.... Have a single backend near the TV.
03:14<Uberbot>Is there, by chance, a web interface?
03:14<o_cee>yes. mythweb
03:14<Uberbot>This will be TOO cool.
03:14<o_cee>wich is on the homepage
03:15<Uberbot>I'll just do that, then.
03:16<Uberbot>Hey, you guys have been really helpfull. Thanx.
03:16<o_cee>np
03:17<Uberbot>Hadees, I see your a fellow gentoo user.

12:22<o_cee>depends.

12:22<thor_>heh
12:22<thor_>all the CSS and making it proper html, correct ?
12:22<Chutt>o_cee, never knew what it was supposed to look like
12:23<o_cee>Chutt: hehe, no.. would you mind trying it again? http://trekotor.se/test1/index2.html there's supposed to be a real menu and a pretty heading

12:23<thor_>right
12:23<Chutt>text isn't in the boxes in konq
12:24<o_cee>and uhm, muhaw, maybe not 100% clean css, since there's a mozilla specific thingie in there, but that's no biggie

13:29<warlord>Rroet: I haven't tried, but I'm fairly sure if I try to jump-back it will get confused about where it is in the program stream and lose the concept of "real-time"
13:29<warlord>yep
13:30<warlord>I try to jump back 5 seconds, but it jumped back about 10 minutes.
13:30<warlord>and now it thinks it's caught up in _time_, even though it think's it's 5.12% behind.
13:30<Rroet>ehm... difference between 5 seconds and 10 minutes is a feature.
13:30<warlord>Uh, I don't think so.
13:31<Rroet>ahh.. the percentages are the usages on the harddrive.. time is expressed in seconds and minutes
13:31<warlord>Yes, but it's CONFUSED.
13:31<warlord>It's 10 minutes behind real-time but it thinks it's exactly AT real-time
13:31<Rroet>mmmm.. crap
13:32<warlord>And the percentage is not usage of the harddrive -- it's the amount of delay expressed as a percentage of the disk usage.
13:33<warlord>For example, if you hit pause, you'll see the percentage (and time) both increase from 0:00/0.00%
13:33<Rroet>I thought it was the percentage of diskusage in the ringbuff file..
13:34<Rroet>mm.. my stuttering seems gone at the moment.
13:34<Chutt>warlord, i haven't seen it get confused at all with 0.14
13:34<warlord>It is.. It's the percent of the delay-from-realtime of the ringbuf usage. If you're in real-time it'll ALWAYS be 0.00%
13:34<Chutt>like you're describing
13:34<warlord>Chutt: I'm using 0.14
13:34<Chutt>right, i'm just saying
13:34<Chutt>i haven't seen that at all :p
13:35<warlord>It takes about 15 minutes of live-tv before it starts getting confused.
13:35<warlord>and it seems to get worse the longer you watch..
13:35<Chutt>we watched the game yesterday in live-tv mode, no problems seeking around
13:35<warlord>For example, I just had it in a state where it thought it was at 0:00 delay, but still at 5.XX%
13:35<warlord>Hmm, we did, too, but we did have problems seeking around.
13:36<warlord>you're using the -350 output?
13:36<Chutt>warlord, it shouldn't be all that difficult to figure out where it's going off -- it's really just looking at the framesPlayed variable for all that
13:36<Chutt>and that's not set in all that many places
13:36<Chutt>yeah, i'm using the -350 output
13:36<warlord>ivtv-0.1.9?
13:36<Chutt>yup
13:37<Chutt>well, cvs from the release, but it's the same thing
13:37<warlord>Hmm. Well, let me try..
13:37<warlord>(yea, same here -- cvs from the release ;)
13:37<Rroet>current cvs is totally fubar
13:37<Rroet>I mean unstable.
13:37<warlord>question: is "make clean" sufficient or do I really need "distclean"?
13:37<Rroet>for me at least.
13:37<Chutt>if it runs, make clean was enough
13:37<warlord>ok.
13:38<Chutt>if it segfaults in weird places, then it wasn't =)
13:38<Rroet>Chutt: do you have the stuttering issue as well with ivtv ?
13:38<Chutt>though, i should have gotten most of the dependency issues ironed out
13:38<Chutt>stuttering?
13:38<Chutt>no
13:38<Rroet>ok, lot of people are getting stuttering after watching about 15minutes of livetv and then switching channels
13:38<Chutt>it's nice that this was reported to the mailing list
13:39<kvandivo>these 'live tv' watchers.. i'll never understand them
13:39<Rroet>Chutt: it was reported to the list
13:39<Chutt>not anyway that i remember
13:39<Chutt>which means it wasn't done well
13:39<Chutt>i skip over crappy bug reports completely
13:39<Rroet>mm.. it was done yesterday even.
13:39<Rroet>by Mike Wood
13:39<Rroet>and about a week ago in the mythdev list
13:40<kvandivo>chutt likes the really long bug reports. be sure to include database table dumps as well.
13:40*kvandivo ducks.
13:40<Rroet>so many messages nowadays.. a few threads tend to fly by unnoticed
13:40<sfr>and sample recordings are a must
13:41<Rroet>sfr: that's the problem.. recordings are fine.
13:41<warlord>kvandivo: my particular skipping problem isn't just livetv, but also a problem when watching a recording-in-progress.
13:41<Rroet>I'm still testing if the problem is in mythtv or in IVTV
13:41<Chutt>Rroet, err, mike wood's problem was something entirely different.
13:41<Chutt>if you read his followup
13:42<Rroet>I've downgraded from ivtv 0.1.9 to 0.1.8 pre2 (11th of januari)
13:42<Chutt>you can't
13:42<Chutt>since that doesn't do things right wrt the timestamps
13:42<Chutt>that the driver returns.
13:42<Chutt>if you're using the pvr-350, you need 0.1.9.
13:42<Rroet>warlord: 350
13:42<Rroet>Rroet: 250
13:42<Chutt>we didn't pull that version requirement out of our asses.
13:43<sfr>Chutt: admittedly, i talked about a similar behaviour here, but i upgraded to ivtv 0.1.9 and from some quick testing yesterday i think it may have solved the problem for me, but i'll keep an eye on it.
13:43<Chutt>sfr, you have a 350?
13:43<sfr>Chutt yes, but i'm not using the tv-out.
13:43<Chutt>then it's a different problem :p
13:44<o_cee>maybe it's time to give the 350 tv output another shot
13:45<warlord>o_cee: 350 output is REALLY good.. (except for the livetv+epg problems)
13:45<sfr>Chutt: symptom is that after some channel changing the load on the frontend goes up, and mythfrontend takes up to ~75 % cpu. exiting live-tv and reentering it fixes it and mythfrontend is again down to ~30% cpu usage.
13:45<Rroet>ehm, you guys don't have issues btw with recordings?

13:50<kvandivo>code 18
13:50<kvandivo>pebkac
13:50<Rroet>I still can't watch PAL at 480x480 without getting a shaking image
13:50<Rroet>do you guys have that problem ?
13:50<o_cee>Rroet: yes
13:50<o_cee>do full pal
13:51<o_cee>you're not supposed to be using anything lower
13:51<Rroet>I know, but my epia won't pull full pal without hw mpeg2 decoding.
13:51<warlord>Chutt: where does it get the percentage from?
13:51<o_cee>same bitrage
13:51<o_cee>bitrate
13:51<o_cee>Rroet: what Epia?
13:51<Rroet>m10k
13:51<Chutt>warlord, where in the source, or how does it do it?
13:51<o_cee>uhm, shouldn't that be able to playback mpeg2?
13:52<Chutt>rroet, err, pal is x576 high.
13:52<warlord>the former. (althogh if you want to explain the latter it'll save me time)
13:52<warlord>The percentage is definitely correct, but the time computation is not.
13:52<Chutt>warlord, NuppelVideoPlayer::calcSliderPos
13:52<Rroet>Chutt: I know.
13:52<Chutt>so why the hell are you trying to capture at an ntsc resolution?
13:53<Rroet>but watching liveTV at 720x576 without hwmpeg decoding is impossible ?
13:53<Rroet>Chutt: ?
13:53<Chutt>use 480x576
13:53<Rroet>not recording, just watching.
13:53<o_cee>pal is 768x576 i think
13:53<Rroet>pal == 720x576 afaik
13:53<Chutt>no
13:53<Chutt>it's not.
13:53<Rroet>o.O
13:53<Rroet>O.o
13:53<o_cee>that's ntsc you're trying
13:53<Chutt>it's an analog signal, there is no horizontal resolution
13:54<Chutt>you should always capture at a full height, or a clean (ie 1/2) multiple of it
13:54<Rroet>Chutt: ok.. thnx, good to now
13:54<Chutt>warlord, it's basically just using framesPlayed - framesWritten
13:54<Rroet>o_cee: now I remember.. full dvd is 720x576...
13:54<Chutt>for the time
13:55<Chutt>the % is a function of disk used
13:55<Rroet>Chutt: so If i go for 360x576 I should be able to watch without hwmpeg decoding ?
13:55<sfr>as we already talk about problems: anyone observe a remote frontend loosing the connection to the backend control socket? happens here quite often while watching live-tv for some time. if that happens channel changing doesn't work but the frontend jumps back to the beginning of the live-tv buffer.
13:55<o_cee>Rroet: why don't you try full PAL first?
13:55<Rroet>o_cee: been there... done that
13:55<o_cee>you just said you didn't even know the resolution.
13:55<warlord>Chutt: right, if if i'm at real-time, the percentage should be 0, right?
13:56<Chutt>close to it
13:56<Rroet>o_cee: ..... x576 was just said..
13:56<Rroet>I have that.
13:56<Chutt>it doesn't let you seek up right to real time
13:56<o_cee>Rroet: 768x576
13:56<warlord>Yea..
13:56<Chutt>warlord, i'd put some debugging in ivtvdecoder to see what it's doing to framesPlayed
13:56<warlord>but it should still be like .05% or so when it's as close to real-time as you can get.
13:56<Rroet>o_cee: ... 720x576 already has a CPU issue it can't keep up.. ... let's try a high resolution..
13:56<Chutt>as i'd say that's probably the issue
13:56<Rroet>seem somewhat strange to me.
13:56<o_cee>Rroet: might involve that it needs to scale
13:57<Rroet>ok, I can try
13:57<o_cee>the epias must suck bigtime if 1000mhz can't playback that..
13:58<Chutt>they do
13:58<Rroet>Chutt: do play back, or do suck ...
13:58<Rroet>I think the last one :)

14:08<Rroet>Chutt: o_cee: ... 768x576 wasn't a good idea for my card.
14:09<lmatter>Rroet, I seriously doubt it. I tried it once too. LIke watching a slide show.
14:09<warlord>hmm, I just got a bunch of "bad newframes" which is showing that framesRead > framesPlayed
14:09<Rroet>lmatter: it is already at 720x576, but it was suggested as a test because 720x576 seems to be a scaled image ..
14:10<Rroet>.. running 720x576 now, it's a slideshow with 2 / 3 sec moving slides
14:11<choenig>hi Chutt, did you have a look at my patch already? and ... would you accept a patch witch gives the option to run an arbitrary script at the beginning of the BE (first scheduler loop) which would allow ppl to startup the FE ?
14:13<Rroet>Chutt: informative question.... when changing channels, does it throw away/empty the ringbuff file and start a new empty one on the new channel?
14:13<sfr>yes, Rroet
14:14<Rroet>could it be.. (via hwpmeg library seems to have issues with harddrive activity) that the changing channels stuttering is coming from that specific issue ?
14:15<knight->anyone ever get that Actisys IR200L to work?
14:15<Rroet>I mean, when I'm using my harddrive heavily moving files, my playback will go stuttering.

14:20<Rincev6>Hmm.
14:20<Rincev6>do you have a logfile _why_ it crashes?
14:20<Rroet>mythbackend logfile doesn't report anything.
14:21<Rincev6>have you already tried to use ivtvctl and ptune_ui.pl to check wether that works?
14:21<Rroet>it just says it went to watching livetv
14:22<Rroet>ivtvctl ?
14:22<Rroet>you mean test_ioctl?
14:24<Rincev6>sorry - es

14:26<Rroet>*eek*
14:26<Rincev6>well ;-)
14:26<Rincev6>there you have it ;)
14:27<Rroet>it does not like anything bigger then 720.
14:29<Chutt>so, uh, don't do anything bigger than 720?
14:30<Rroet>Chutt: ..... about the remarks a few lines back.. ... I was kinda advised to try 768x576
14:31<Chutt>............
14:31<Chutt>is rather annoying.

14:35<warlord>Chutt: I added some debugging, and there is clearly something strange going on. I seeked backwards 5 seconds and then forward "30" (which should catch me up...
14:35<bline>hey Chutt, do you run myth in the pvr350 framebuffer with qt-embedded?
14:35<Chutt>bline, nope
14:36<bline>have you tried it?
14:36<Chutt>nope
14:36<bline>ok
14:36<warlord>It started with framesRead=660, framesPlayed=517, then jumped back to 361
14:36<Chutt>heh
14:36<warlord>then at framesRead=475/Played=390 it jumped forward to 513
14:36<Chutt>warlord, so, that's a start =)
14:37<warlord>it's almost as if it doesn't get frame-count pointers correct in the file..
14:37<Chutt>it's getting the framesPlayed number from the driver
14:38<warlord>not always.
14:38<Chutt>most of the time, though
14:39<warlord>well, it's caching a "long long framesPlayed"
14:39<warlord>there is also GetFramesPlayed()
14:40<Chutt>UpdateFramesPlayed is called every frame
14:40<Chutt>which grabs the number from the card, with GetFramesPlayed
14:41<warlord>ok..
14:43<Chutt>it's still partially calculated, so that'd be something to look at
14:43<Chutt>in UpdateFramesPlayed

14:46<Rroet>Chutt: I've just watched 15mins of liveTV, and stuttering started again on channelchange :(
14:46<Chutt>rroet, so do something other than complain about it
14:46<Rroet>ok, what's a good way to debug it..
14:46<Chutt>i dunno
14:46<Rroet>only errors I'm now getting is standard prebuffering pauses
14:48<sfr>Rroet: you see a high load or the frontend using more cpu time than usual?
14:48<warlord>Chutt: what bitrate do you have set for livetv?
14:48<Rroet>sfr I'll try to check..
14:48<Chutt>4.5/6
14:49<Rroet>sfr: if I use top to messure CPU usage, it will make playback stutter anyway.
14:49<warlord>Hmm.. One thing I noticed in ivtvdecoder.. if !hasFullPositionMap it assumes bitrate=8000; not sure if that's causing me problems.
14:50<Rroet>I'll check back again in about 15minutes.. I've just restarted my livetv stream.
14:50<Rroet>base cpu load now is 27.4 to 28.3 %
14:50<warlord>Rroet: how are you computing cpu load?
14:50<sfr>Rroet: use 'nice top' next time
14:51<Rroet>warlord: using top
14:51<Chutt>warlord, naw, that's just a guideline for how much it downloads at a time
14:51<Rroet>sfr: does it also apply to top -d 1 ... or am I being to brutal on the system?
14:51<Chutt>it shouldn't affect the framesPlayed stuff
14:51<warlord>Chutt: thanks.. *grasping at straws here* (thanks for the pointers)
14:51<Chutt>no problem
14:51<Chutt>i'd like to see your problems fixed :p
14:52<warlord>Yea..
14:52<sfr>Rroet: yes
14:52<Rroet>sfr: the nice command doesn't fix my audio glitches ?
14:53<sfr>Rroet: no
14:53<Rroet>sfr: sorry, it wasn't a question.
14:53<Rroet>top -d1 will cause audio glitches when it updates. even with using the nice command

15:10<sfr>Rroet: i don't know how to help, just looking for similarities to the stuttering i see/saw.
15:10<Rroet>ok, np. getting the issue diagnosed is step 1 towards a solution :)
15:10<Rroet>I see myth is using up a load of memory.
15:11<Rroet>I have 512MB ddr onboard, and it's completely filled up.
15:11<Chutt>i doubt it's filled up.
15:12<Rroet>mm.. right after starting a liveTV stream it's getting to be eaten away
15:12<warlord>Rroet: it's filled up with cached buffers...
15:12<Rroet>about 4 meg every 2 seconds.
15:12<warlord>you can ignore that.
15:12<Rroet>warlord: jup.. ok
15:12<warlord>buffers "don't count" as used memory
15:13<thor_>although fluffers ...

15:35<deanrantala>I know it is stupid
15:35<Rincev6>sure
15:35<Rincev6>I just do that
15:35<deanrantala>But I don't see how it is supposed to work
15:36<Rincev6>why not?
15:36<deanrantala>err....
15:36<deanrantala>wait..
15:36<deanrantala>wrong channel
15:36<deanrantala>I am working on freevo
15:36<deanrantala>my apologies
15:36<Rincev6>well - you define the channels you want to watch or record
15:36<sfr>so try mythTV then, deanrantala
15:36<Rincev6>and then you go to "tv" "watching" and there you go ;)
15:36<deanrantala>lol.. I would if it were not perl :(
15:37<deanrantala>Perl never works on slack
15:37<Rincev6>perl?
15:37<deanrantala>:(
15:37<Rincev6>where is perl?

15:38<thor_>uhm, install the perl package?
15:38<warlord>then perhaps you should use a real working distribution
15:38<Chutt>maybe you should use a different distribution, then?
15:38<deanrantala>I have it
15:38<deanrantala>I have tried many different versions
15:38<deanrantala>never works
15:39<deanrantala>lol.. I can't even run frozen-bubbles
15:39<deanrantala>warlord: I have thought about gentoo, but I am so used to slack now after over a year of use
15:39<Chutt>wow, a whole year.
15:39<warlord>go with gentoo
15:39<thor_>heh
15:40<warlord>==chutt
15:40<sfr>deanrantala: so you really like python i guess
15:40<deanrantala>dunno - I'm not a programmer
15:40<thor_>what are those things that live in deep dark holes and eat children?
15:40<deanrantala>I just have never had much success with perl
15:41<AridWrk>i'm having a strange problem. I have a gentoo machine and a pvr250 running kernel 2.4.22 and I can watch livetv for a full day with no errors or crashes but when I setup recordings and go to sleep I wake up and the computer is frozen. Most times it has recorded the show but then it hard locks my machine. This happens with the frontend on as well as off
15:41<sfr>orks?
15:41<Chutt>deanrantala, so, do you have a reason to be in this channel at all?
15:41<Chutt>aridwrk, talk to the ivtv people.

15:52<Chutt>pahli_bar, that makes perfect sense, though!
15:52<Chutt>pahli_bar, why not use a gtk app to configure a qt app?

15:54<thor_>those are all the data elements I'm thinking about
15:54<dcstimm>hey guys, I just got a new hdtv tv set, and I got VOOM, is there a way to record hdtv to my harddrive and display it back to my tv set?
15:55<thor_>PLUS, I keep meaning to add something that will be called MythChecksum (or something like that) which will be an MD5 checksum
15:56<dcstimm>anyone?
15:56<thor_>so there's a couple things in there (date_added, date_modified, eq_presets, etc.) .... no way you have to add them all, but useful to have a look
15:56<steelep>sure, this schema I did is totally extendable
15:57<mikegrb>dcstimm: you have voom? isn't the startup cost around 800?
15:57<dcstimm>hello? thor_, steelep?
15:57<dcstimm>mikegrb, nope free
15:57<thor_>dcstimm, over the air hdtv yes ... www.pcHDTV.com ... encrypted stuff your satellite company sends you, not likely
15:57<mikegrb>dcstimm: really?
15:57<dcstimm>thor_, yeah I bought that card
15:57<thor_>steelep, yup
15:57<dcstimm>thor_, back order of 3 weeks
15:58<thor_>thanks to Myth :-)
15:58<mikegrb>dcstimm: I looked into it at one point and you had to purchase all the equipment up front
15:58<dcstimm>thor_, is there a way to get component inputs on a tv card?
15:58<steelep>the "launch" element is to lookup stuff on launch.yahoo for music, sort of like imdb
15:58<dcstimm>mikegrb, nope free, until march, then they bill you $39 a month
15:59<thor_>dcstimm, component inputs do not magically give you a digital mpeg file
15:59<dcstimm>mikegrb, it was also a $7.99 service fee for them to install the satalite
15:59<dcstimm>thor_, okay, but cant I hook my receiver up to it, and get hdtv on my computer?
15:59<thor_>steelep, looks great :-)
16:00<thor_>dcstimm, on your computer monitor ?
16:00<dcstimm>yep
16:00<thor_>sure
16:00<thor_>but you might as well turn your computer off
16:00<dcstimm>why?
16:01<thor_>think vga connectors, and the difference between input and output
16:01<steelep>I'll keep working on it during the week, this hopefulyy will have some demos going with it soon
16:01<dcstimm>i watched the super bowl in high def and now i am addicted to it
16:02<dcstimm>thor_, is there a box that can hook up to the dvi on my flat panel 19" monitor that can display hd to it?
16:02<thor_>hd over the air?
16:03<dcstimm>anything
16:03<thor_>(why do I feel like this is going in circles)
16:03<dcstimm>but mostly from my hd box that voom gave me
16:03<dcstimm>it does have a dvi port on it
16:03<thor_>(sigh)
16:03<dcstimm>could i hook my monitor up to that port directly and get hd tv on my monitor?
16:04<thor_>depends on your monitor
16:04<thor_>and/or adaptor

16:05<dcstimm>other than that pchdtv card?
16:05<dcstimm>which only accepts over the air?
16:05<thor_>sure, you could move to Europs
16:05<thor_>Europe
16:05<thor_>and use a DVB system
16:05<pahli_bar>Chutt: i've been thinking about the treeview. some comments: treeview is essentially clumsy to use with a remote-input. even if we use a modified listbtntype for it, its still a treeview and carries over all the problems of it.
16:06<dcstimm>thor_, better technology?
16:06<steelep>we can use dvb in the us too, just not easily
16:06<pahli_bar>Chutt: alternate way of doing it. (on top text entry: 1. select by artist 2. by album 3. by genre)
16:06<thor_>agreement on how to encrypt bits and what you need to decrypt them
16:07<o_cee>(dvb is not HD tho)
16:07*thor_ is worried people don't _love_ his GenericTree stuff
16:07<steelep>can be o_cee
16:07<dcstimm>hd tv looks soo damn amazing
16:07<o_cee>steelep: can be.
16:07<o_cee>:)
16:07<steelep>I watch hbo and cbs in hd
16:07<dcstimm>the superbowl was so crystal clear
16:07<pahli_bar>Chutt: middle view: on left one listview with either artist/album/genre. on right listview with corresponding songs
16:07<o_cee>but, there's no hdtvs in europe yet
16:08<pahli_bar>Chutt: bottom: text entry showing details of current selection.
16:08<o_cee>thor_: btw, making albumart fallback to goom would be nice ;)
16:08<thor_>pahli_bar, left right to switch between them?
16:09<thor_>yeah, but not everyone has goom compiled in
16:09<pahli_bar>Chutt: additional enhancements - one selects an artist in left view (for artistview selection) - right shows songs. songs of different albums shown in different colors
16:09<o_cee>yeah but you know what i mean
16:09<o_cee>another viz
16:09<thor_>yeah
16:09<pahli_bar>thor_: left-right to switch between the left-right listviews
16:09<thor_>and that is different than the tree ?
16:10<pahli_bar>thor_: yes. one does need to expand-close a tree.
16:10<o_cee>i still think this needs to be seperated to another page in mythmusic
16:10<thor_>heh
16:10<o_cee>not enough room
16:11<pahli_bar>thor_: additionally. easier to navigate between artists on left view. if you have a tree expanded going down will go into the subtree
16:11<thor_>I think we need a little rethink on a lot of UI stuff .... as there are just way too many key presses ...
16:11*pahli_bar hopes Chutt catches all that
16:12<pahli_bar>thor_: agreed. i will be working a prototype based on the ideas mentioned above and see if its really effective
16:12<thor_>but I've sat down to think about it a few times, and I get lost every time

16:14<o_cee>or something like that.. not enough space to do anything fun out of it really
16:14<pahli_bar>o_cee: hmm... why do you want to hide the playlist
16:14<o_cee>pahli_bar: because it's to big
16:15<thor_>pahli_bar, I'd really like to get to a point where there's maybe 8 core keys (l,r,u,d, yes no menu back) and you can do _everything_ with those keys ... of course, you'd be able to assign keys to do lots of other shortcut stuff as well, but you'd never _need_ more than the core set
16:15<o_cee>you'd be able to have alot bigger playlist on another dedicated screen
16:15<pcjabber>was anyone using Axel's Myth-CVS after he cut it off bleeding?
16:15<thor_>but I have no idea how to do it
16:16<thor_>o_cee, I like the sliding playlist idea ...
16:16<pahli_bar>thor_: an inspiration could come from the monitor settings buttons
16:16<pahli_bar>s/the monitor/a computer monitor/
16:17<pahli_bar>thor_: basically have a transparent overlay menu to popup and do operations from there
16:17*thor_ plays with hie monitor controls

16:18<pcjabber>sounds good to me =)
16:18<pcjabber>its not my conversation, but i like the idea =)
16:18<pahli_bar>thor_: i can do it for mythdialogs. no idea about tv.

16:19<pahli_bar>i will let you guys worry about it :)
16:20<thor_>heh, not that I actually know anything about the OSD

16:21<o_cee>thor_: they're not availible here :) there's no such thing as pvr's here.. heh
16:21<thor_>I've heard you can do almost anything with four arrows and an OK button on a Tivo
16:22<o_cee>good ui design in that case
16:22<o_cee>:)
16:22<pahli_bar>in mythgallery and mythnews- you can do almost everything with 4 arrows, yes, menu and info.
16:22<thor_>would be terrible if you always _had_ to use only 5 buttons, but excellent to be _able_ to do everything with 5 buttons

16:23<Wildgoose>Can anyone help with a compile prob on latest cvs? (In videoout_xv.cpp)
16:24<Wildgoose>I'm getting a message about /usr/include/inttypes.h:396: syntax error before `__attribute__'
16:24<pahli_bar>Wildgoose: 0.14 was just out. why are using the cvs?
16:24<Wildgoose>yes
16:24<Wildgoose>oh, sorry, yes I'm using cvs
16:24<pcjabber>i think pahli_bar is asking *why* you are using cvs, since .14 is out
16:25<pahli_bar>Wildgoose: i know you are.. the question is why
16:25<thor_>probably not /usr/include/inttypes.h, probably something else included shortly before it
16:25<Wildgoose>err, well cvs is going to be about the same as 0.14 then...?
16:25<pcjabber>basically

16:28<Wildgoose>Back to the error though... Can anyone help witha translation...?
16:29<pcjabber>sorry, not familiar with that section of code
16:29<o_cee>there's no merge errors from cvs update?
16:29<pcjabber>im lazy -- i compile from RPM whenever possible =p
16:29<Wildgoose>nope
16:29<thor_>Wildgoose, you do anything funky in settings.pro?
16:29<pcjabber>it could just be you co'ed (checked out) a bad copy of CVS
16:30<Wildgoose>Well, I have a fair number of code changes so I follow cvs so it merges in my changes
16:30<Wildgoose>I have the same cvs for quite a long time now
16:30<pcjabber>i.e. CVS had a problem when you co'ed it
16:30<Wildgoose>well it seems to have been like that all day
16:30<Wildgoose>settings.pro has DVB, alsa in it
16:30<thor_>ah, DVB
16:30<thor_>I wonder
16:31<thor_>you might want to try just toggling that on and off and see if the error goes away
16:31<Wildgoose>hmm, the include paths changed here... I wonder
16:31<thor_>at least then you could be specific on a -dev post about what's throwing it off
16:32<o_cee>Wildgoose: you saw that error commited to settings.pro right?
16:33<Wildgoose>hmm, yes, toggling on DVB is triggering the error
16:33<thor_>that all seemed to be in a state of flux
16:33<pcjabber>was anyone using Axel's Myth-CVS after he cut it off bleeding?
16:34<thor_>put on a -dev, someone will figure it out
16:34<Wildgoose>I notice that the include patch has changed to /usr/src/linux rather than the full patch to the include
16:34<o_cee>pcjabber: stop asking the same damn question
16:34<pcjabber>sorry
16:34<Wildgoose>I guess that this must be why, will try and trace through it
16:34<pcjabber>i'd just like to find out if anyone knows
16:34<thor_>probably part of it
16:40<Chutt>choenig, you really need to start breaking things up into smaller functions.
16:42<choenig>Chutt: yeah :) but this big mainloop keeps me doing so :\
16:42<Chutt>what big mainloop?
16:42<Chutt>the stuff in scheduler.cpp you added in this most recent patch can be moved out into a separate function with absolutely no problems
16:42<choenig>the scheduler loop
16:42<choenig>ok, I'll do so
16:43<Chutt>i already did
16:43<choenig>oh
16:43<choenig>Mh.
16:43<Chutt>the stuff in mythfrontend/main.cpp can also
16:43<choenig>:)
16:43<Chutt>80 character lines
16:43<Chutt>nothing should wrap
16:43*thor_ starts to worry about all his enormous variable names
16:44<choenig>I installed an indicator for emacs which shows me the 80 char line. I only had one or two chars over 80. I thought that would be accaptable
16:45<choenig>and what about the "startup function" (ok, I'll put it into a seperate function =) ) ?
16:45<Chutt>+ blockShutdown
16:45<Chutt>+ = gContext->GetNumSetting("blockSDWUwithoutClient", 1);
16:45<Chutt>not when you're doing stuff like that
16:46<Chutt>that means you're indented way too far, and should move things into a new function.
16:48<choenig>I don't know, why I have such a problem introducing new functions. I didn't have that in the beginning here. I really will change that behaviour!

17:04*pahli_bar apologizes for the http
17:04<pahli_bar>*https*
17:04<Chutt>that's like how the ui works on the neuros
17:04<Chutt>and it's pretty horrible to use
17:05<pahli_bar>neuros?
17:05<Chutt>portable mp3/ogg player
17:05<thor_>heh
17:05<Chutt>you can't select an artist, then select an album by them
17:06<pahli_bar>Chutt: three listviews then.
17:06<Chutt>going to the full list of albums is clunky, since there's so many of them
17:06<Chutt>really has to be arbitrary numbers
17:06<Chutt>what if someone wanted to sort by year?
17:06<pahli_bar>humph...
17:06<Chutt>year -> genre -> artist -> album -> track
17:07<Chutt>etc
17:07*pahli_bar starts sobbing..
17:07<Chutt>heh
17:07<thor_>I like the tree .... I just wish there was a standardized way for the user to get a menu to do other things
17:07<Chutt>sorry
17:07<Chutt>thor, mythpopupbox? :p
17:07<thor_>quite probably
17:07<thor_>cycle visualizer, turn on blanker, blah, blah ....
17:08<pahli_bar>what does an ipod use.. sliding views?
17:08<thor_>you can't have those just bound to keys and expect people to remember/find them
17:08<thor_>but one key that always brings up a menu works for me
17:08<Chutt>thor, yeah
17:09<Chutt>pahli_bar, i've never seen an ipod
17:09<thor_>and you still only need l, r ,u d, OK, back and menu
17:10<Chutt>all i know is that it's hard to use the neuros
17:10<thor_>heh
17:10<Chutt>and one of the largest feature requests is to add more levels to the selection process
17:10<thor_>people can always flatten a tree
17:11<pahli_bar>Chutt: ipod has worse limitations than a myth-remote. if lots of people are happy with it, then the gui might be worth emulating
17:11<thor_>people rave about the iPod's interface ... but I've never seen one
17:12<thor_>mind you, people rave about reality tv shows
17:12<pahli_bar>heh.
17:12<pahli_bar>my friend has an ipod. i will borrow it and play with it
17:13<Chutt>make it multi level
17:13<Chutt>for a tree like view
17:13<Chutt>like your settings for the news stuff
17:13<Chutt>but make it miniaturize the stuff on the left
17:13<pahli_bar>hmm. from the pictures on apple it seems to be nextstep like sliding trees
17:14<Chutt>so it looks really small
17:14<Chutt>and doesn't take up room
17:14<Chutt>if necessary
17:14<knight->i love my iPod, but it's interface could still use improvement
17:14<Chutt>could even animate it
17:14<Chutt>be all slick
17:15<Chutt>i dunno
17:15<Chutt>i'm just babbling =)
17:15<pahli_bar>Chutt: sounds reasonable. i will have to spend some time just doing some thought-experiments
17:16<knight->Chutt, what are you talking about changing?
17:16<thor_>and no matter what anyone comes up with, someone will still complain that their mouse pointer is disappearing
17:16<pahli_bar>lol.
17:17<pahli_bar>didn't someone send a patch to enable the pointer
17:17<thor_>quite probably
17:19<pahli_bar>heh. ipod even has an easter egg. http://www.anandtech.com/audio/showdoc.html?i=1575&p=4
17:19<Chutt>knight, music selection screen
17:19<knight->Chutt, ahh good, but you're not going to model it after a portable device I hope
17:20<pahli_bar>knight-: why not. seems like similar kind of key/screenspace limitations
17:20<knight->not really
17:20<knight->the kind of real estate is much larger
17:20<knight->640x480 compared to 300x100 generally at most
17:21<knight->we should try to implement something different and new
17:21<pahli_bar>knight-: its similar in the sense that people want big fonts on their tv and that sucks up lot of screenspace.
17:21<pahli_bar>knight-: don't we all :)
17:21<knight->something a little warmer than klunky portable device screens
17:21<knight->true
17:22<knight->but those interfaces are horrible
17:22<Rincev6>is this normal? If I have a long timeshifting and I shift "back" to realtime, my machine stutters - becuase the ringbuffer is too full. I have to swithc to the menu and start live watching again to get that clean...
17:22<knight->that's my only complaint about the ipod... is the music selection process

18:26<Slaytanic>http://atrpms.physik.fu-berlin.de/name/mythtv/
18:26<Slaytanic>run apt-get update, then you should be able to upgrade
18:27<mdz>what is an ATRPM in contrast to an RPM?
18:27<gerhard>I only see 0.13
18:27<thor_>Absolutely Tremendous ?
18:28<Slaytanic>http://atrpms.physik.fu-berlin.de/dist/fc1/mythtv/ contains 0.14... If not, empty your cache.

18:28<Slaytanic>Ok
18:29<Spida>can somebody help me a bit with my mythtv?
18:29<mdz>Chutt: is it a distinct package format, or just a name for a collection of RPMs?
18:29<gerhard>oops sorry and thanks, anyone installed it?
18:29<Chutt>mdz, that's the guy's name
18:29<Slaytanic>Just about to... :)O
18:29<Chutt>it's his collection of rpms
18:29<mdz>ah
18:29<mdz>so can I call my debs "mdzdebs"?

18:30<Spida>I have vanilla-2.4.24 with bytesex-patches for v4l2 installed, but I have problems everywhere
18:31<Spida>btw, I am on gentoo
18:31<rkulagow>mdz: i'm getting the following when doing a apt-get build-dist mythtv
18:31<rkulagow>W: Couldn't stat source package list ftp://ftp.nerim.net unstable/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.nerim.net_debian-marillat_dists_unstable_main_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
18:31<rkulagow>i had added nerim.net to my sources.list as specified on your unstable page. any ideas?
18:31<Chutt>spida, ask on the users list if it's a mythtv problem
18:32<mdz>rkulagow: deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ unstable main
18:32<mdz>rkulagow: is that what you have in sources.list?
18:33<rkulagow>mdz: sorry, a little more context. i've detailed what happens in the message "Re: [mythtv-users] XBOX Myth & FOCUS Video Chip"; don't want to rehash everything here (if you've got a minute)
18:33<mdz>rkulagow: -dev or -users?
18:33<rkulagow>-users
18:33<mdz>marillat does seem to move his packages around every month or so
18:33<Spida>Chutt: would be cool if was just _a_ problem.... I have no TV, Gallery doesn't even start, remote does learn but not control, dvd/vcd have only sound, music has no visualisation and the whole thing crashes sometimes
18:33<mdz>but I just checked and ftp.nerim.net is still valid
18:33<Chutt>spida, so ask on the users list.
18:34<Chutt>spida, this isn't a tech support channel.
18:34<rkulagow>brb.
18:34<Spida>Chutt: is the users-list better for that?
18:34<Chutt>since i've said to ask on it twice now
18:34<Chutt>i would _assume_ so
18:34<Spida>Chutt: ok, ok.
18:34<gerhard>has anybody installed mythtv 0.14 for redhat using apt-get?
18:35<Spida>Chutt: should I try the 0.14 versions first?
18:35<mdz>rkulagow: did you run apt-get update after changing sources.list?
18:36<mdz>rkulagow: the xbox is a 686 cpu, right? is there some reason that the precompiled debs won't work?
18:37<knight->grrrr
18:37<Chutt>spida, err, yes.

18:39<gerhard>slaytanic, tell me how it goes with you upgrrade
18:40<Slaytanic>Will do... Just realized that I'm recording right now, gonna stop that first.
18:41<Spida>Chutt: is that "err" a "err, yes, of course, why are you asking" or a "err, perhaps, could work better"
18:41<Chutt>the first
18:41<Chutt>is there any reason why you _wouldn't_ try the latest version of a software package when you're having problems with an earlier version?
18:42<sfr>the windows experience?
18:42<Spida>Chutt: because I don't know if I have problems with THAT package
18:43<Spida>Chutt: or if I am just to stupid to configure it or if I broke other things
18:43<Chutt>whatever
18:43<Spida>which kernel would you suggest? (I am on gentoo)
18:43<rkulagow>mdz: the xbox is a celeron 733; i prefer to compile from source to keep updated with CVS since i can therefore keep the HOWTO updated. plus, the masterbackend and the other frontend are CVS, and there have been protocol changes in the past that might make the .14 deb not work for long...
18:43<Chutt>i'd suggest that you use a distribution that more closely matches your linux experience
18:44<mdz>rkulagow: ah. so what happens when you run apt-get update?
18:44<pahli_bar>hear hear
18:46<rkulagow>mdz: booting now.
18:47<plac3bo>hi everyone- i'm a gentoo user and am trying to build mythbrowser but get dep errors, i pretty sure i'm missing the required KDE dev libs, but i am not sure whcih package(s) to merge...i merged kdevelop already, but i think that is a programming IDE, anyone know which package i need to merge?
18:47*pahli_bar rolls around laughing
18:48<sfr>add an e here and there, plac3bo ;)
18:49<sfr>plac3bo: mdz's debian packages dependencies might get you started
18:49<rkulagow>fuck. xbox isn't booting because it wasn't shutdown cleanly, doesn't have ssh running yet and i don't have a keyboard attached.
18:50<Spida>Chutt: like what?
18:50<Slaytanic>Ok, 0.14 installed... Let's see how it looks and works...
18:50<gerhard>just upgradet with apt-get on rh9 and everything looks good

18:56<pahli_bar>in the beginning it was all well and good. targetted towards experienced users.
18:56<Spida>I didn't want to start a distribution-war here...
18:56<knight->has anyone got the ivtv-fb to show bootup?
18:56<knight->linux kernel, etc
18:57<Chutt>knight, would need to be able to be loaded much earlier in the boot sequence
18:57<Chutt>and it would need the console palette fixed
18:57<knight->Chutt, true
18:57<knight->hmm
18:57<Chutt>instead of the current black on black
18:57<knight->it would just be nice to have something showing on the screen while it boots
18:57<knight->I wanted bootsplash to show :)
18:57<Chutt>yeah, i'd agree with that
18:58<knight->a special MythTV bootsplash
18:58<knight->:)
18:58<Slaytanic>knight-: You're talking about using a PVR350, right?
18:58<pahli_bar>that reminds me... Chutt, the plugins are compiled with -O3 default. some g++ versions are known to have produced broken code at such optimizations. maybe we should use a less aggressive optimization where its not needed
18:58<knight->Slaytanic, that's correct.
18:58<choenig>Spida: I think the problem is not the basic flame-war. I think its that there are too many gentoo users, who don't know what there are doing, and gentoo isn't a distro wich is fine for linux beginners
18:58<Chutt>pahli_bar, sure, that's fine
18:58<pahli_bar>Chutt: even in the core module... only where its needed
18:58<Chutt>well
18:59<Slaytanic>That's on my "to do" list... I want to use the PVR350 for my TV and the VGA output for my projector...
18:59<mdz>http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35890
18:59<mdz>I've read that a dozen times and it's still funny
18:59<Chutt>there it's harder, since qmake doesn't really seem to do cflags on a per-file basis
18:59<Chutt>mdz, that the aim guy?
18:59<mdz>Chutt: yep
18:59<Chutt>err, whatever
18:59<choenig>mdz: hmmm :)
18:59<Spida>choenig: my problem is, that i have some linux experience (like 6 years) but most of them on server or overaged machines, so when it comes to multimedia, I am sort of new
18:59<Morph>mdz: haha
18:59<pahli_bar>heh
19:00<Chutt>gaim, not aim
19:00<Chutt>yeah, it's hilarious
19:00<Chutt>and 100% true
19:00<pahli_bar>what the hell does it mean.
19:00<Slaytanic>Haha
19:00<sfr>mdz: funny
19:00<choenig>Spida: having linux experience normaly also is mailinglist experience... so, remember what Isaac told you?
19:00<Slaytanic>Indeed
19:01<Chutt>pahli_bar, what, the username stuff?
19:01<pahli_bar>yes (clueless pahli_bar)
19:01<Chutt>do a /whois on yourself
19:01<Slaytanic>Spida: Just like me... Linux on the desktop is a totally different matter than running servers like Apache etc...
19:01<pahli_bar>Chutt: ok i get it. :)
19:01<Chutt>see where it has your username?
19:02<Chutt>that can be overridden by the irc client
19:02<Chutt>heh, ok =)
19:03<bline>thor: did you write mythvideo?
19:04<Chutt>haha
19:04<Chutt>http://www.mythtv.org/pipermail/mythtv-users/2004-February/029947.html
19:04<Chutt>just a little bit ago
19:05<pahli_bar>heh.
19:05<Slaytanic>Speak of the devil... ;)
19:05<plac3bo>spida: i'm the same way, all my linux experience prior to mythtv has been 99% thru a ssh term dealing with server apps like apache/tomcate/etc
19:05<Chutt>just look at those compile options
19:05<pahli_bar>my god. look at the options
19:06<pahli_bar>freebsd says clearly any bug reports with optimizations greater than -O2 won't be accepted (at least for the core)
19:07<Chutt>that makes sense
19:08<choenig>gentoo normaly has -O3, but the .ebuild guy could limit that to -o2, that it fits the BSD needs
19:09*Spida should _REALLY_ go to bed NOW
19:10<Spida>have to be up again in 250 minutes
19:10<Slaytanic>Ugh... Good night then.
19:11<warlord>Chutt: in ivtvdecoder, should framesRead and framesPlayed be approximately the same number?
19:14<Spida>good night (or whatever daytime it is in your timezone)
19:14<mdz>Chutt: hey I have an idea to improve optimization. rather than turning all of the optimization options on, someone should go through and figure out which optimizations actually improve performance in the general case, and are unlikely to result in slower code
19:14<Slaytanic>1.14 am, CET :)
19:14<mdz>Chutt: then they could make a special flag for gcc to turn on only those optimizations
19:15<sfr>Spida: hm, you can't be a student, then.

19:15<sfr>Spida: good night
19:15<pahli_bar>mdz: usually the gui code don't benefit from higher optimizations.
19:15*mdz passes his hands over the gcc source code and -O2 arises
19:16<mdz>pahli_bar: a lot of those options actually make things slower
19:16<mdz>like loop unrolling
19:17<pahli_bar>mdz: the only code i have seen benefit from loop unrolling is in scientific codes and that too the developer of the code has any hints to as to how much unrolling should be done

19:23<Slaytanic># service lircd status
19:23<Slaytanic>lircd dead but subsys locked
19:23<Slaytanic>Guess it died during boot...
19:25<Slaytanic>Ok, lircd started ok again but irw says nothing... Weird.
19:25<bline>thor: what do you think about having a base class for the two different views, tree and browse?
19:26<thor_>are they not both MythThemed Dialogs?
19:26<bline>mainly for handling things like getting a list of viewable movies and playing movies in a consistent way
19:26<Slaytanic>What should the permissions on /dev/lirc be?
19:26<thor_>bline, yup ... absolutely
19:27+kslater [~kslater@24.svnf1.xdsl.nauticom.net] joined #mythtv
19:27<bline>thor, actually, one if MythThemed and the other is MythDialog
19:27<bline>s/if/is/
19:27<thor_>'cept the tree view has the option to ignore the database and just browse files
19:27<bline>thor, cool, I'll work on that
19:27<thor_>converting to MythThemedDialog should not be difficult
19:27<thor_>well, not _too_ difficult
19:28<Chutt>warlord, they should be reasonably close, yeah
19:28<bline>yeah, it doesn't look too hard
19:28<Chutt>not exact, though
19:28<pahli_bar>why is mythdialog not inherited from qdialog
19:29<Chutt>caused problems
19:29<Chutt>and it's not a top level dialog
19:29<pahli_bar>true.
19:29<Chutt>it's just a frame being shown in the mainwindow class
19:30<pahli_bar>Chutt: actually its nice this way. i'm writing a mythscrolldialog now.. just copy and paste :)
19:30<Chutt>ah
19:30<Chutt>cool
19:30<Chutt>will be very useful for help text and stuff
19:31<thor_>there
19:31<thor_>aac decoding is working
19:31<Chutt>nice
19:31<Chutt>using libfaad or whatnot natively?
19:31<warlord>Chutt: that's what I was afraid of.. As processing continues, the spread between the framesRead and framesPlayed is constantly increasing (until I perform a seek at which point they are re-synced)
19:31<thor_>libfaad
19:31<Chutt>or the libavformat/codec class
19:32<thor_>now to pull out the metadata properly
19:32<Chutt>warlord, how far apart do they get?
19:32<warlord>At one piint I measured them as 439 apart
19:32<Chutt>yeah, that's not right

19:33<Chutt>that is only 15 seconds or so, but...
19:33<Chutt>it's definitely an indication that something's off
19:34<warlord>Well, this is with a pre-recorded program so it has the full position map already..
19:34<warlord>I hope I'm at least heading in the right direction...
19:35<warlord>Mind if I ask what the point of "framesRead" is? Why is it kept as a different counter than framesPlayed?
19:35<Chutt>framesRead is what it's read off the disk
19:35<Chutt>played is what the card says it's actually played so far
19:35<Chutt>it does buffer a little, but that should be 15 frames or less
19:36<warlord>Right.. It ALMOST looks like it's buffering an extra 15 frames per second of video..
19:36<warlord>(or at least accounting for that)

20:12<knight->Slaytanic, check your /etc/modules.conf for a bttv
20:13<Slaytanic>Nopes, nothing there! I've compared my modules.conf with my backed up one from yesterday, almost no differences...
20:14<knight->something is telling it to load
20:14<knight->grep your directories for bttv
20:15<Slaytanic>Nothing in /etc anyway... Where else should I check?
20:15<Slaytanic>in the /etc dir I mean, not the subdirs...

20:16<Slaytanic>All through atrpms...

20:26<warlord>This is a diff of framesRead-framesPlayed -> 2951

20:29<enki>i need a remote
20:32<Slaytanic>Here, have mine, it stopped working.... :/
20:33<enki>bummer
20:33<enki>i wonder if i should just scrounge up one i got laying around
20:33<enki>or buy a new one w/ tons of buttons
20:34<Slaytanic>Go for the old one first... You don't need lotsa buttons for watching TV with myth,,
20:34<enki>is there a list of buttonmaps that mythtv uses?
20:34<enki>i mean, is there a standard set, or does it change from module to module?
20:35<enki>and lirc just maps remote buttons to keyboard strokes right?
20:35<Slaytanic>Kind of, yeah... Most Myth modules share the same keys.
20:35<Slaytanic>Have a look: http://wilsonet.com/mythtv/keys.txt
20:36<gerhard>I have a small issue with TV-OUT, horizontal lines flicker like hell, any idea how to get rid of it. I use a Nvidia mx400 card
20:37<Slaytanic>Have you tried different screen resolutions?
20:37<Chutt>warlord, that sounds reasonable
20:37<Chutt>warlord, are you sure there's nothing in there that's set to pal mode?
20:37<gerhard>I use tv-out pal
20:38<warlord>Chutt: I'm fairly sure, but not 100% sure... I haven't set anything to pal mode, but I'm happy to take a look. Where are the potential PAL settings?
20:39<warlord>I've got nothing in modules.conf that would set ivtv to pal-mode.
20:39<Chutt>that's all, really
20:39<warlord>my recordings are all 29.97fps
20:39<Chutt>you could test that theory
20:39<Chutt>by putting some statements in UpdateFramesPlayed
20:40<Chutt>and seeing how many frames it says it's played in a given time period
20:40<warlord>Hmm...
20:40<Chutt>it'd let you see if it really was slow or not
20:41<warlord>suggestions for measuring a time period?

20:44<Chutt>why aren't you following the stuff in the ivtv docs about how to set things up?
20:44<knight->I did
20:44<knight->I followed to the t. :)
20:44<Chutt>You should see mythfrontend load. Go to Settings/TV Setting/Playback and on
20:44<Chutt>the second (I think) screen check the "Use PVR-350" thing. Make sure it says

21:00<Chutt>i'm not sure how best to check for that

21:01<warlord>I decided to take 5-second samples.
21:03<Chutt>makes sense
21:05<Chutt>so, figure out if it's double counting things =)

21:06<Chutt>great

21:08<Chutt>warlord, and, i didn't write most of ivtvdecoder =)
21:08<mdz>mythweb should have hardcoded defaults for its config options, and then let them be overridden by conf.php
21:08<Chutt>so don't blame me =)
21:08<warlord>:P
21:08<mdz>otherwise you need to mess with conf.php on every upgrade

21:10<livesNbox>hey guys -- anyone ever built an IR transmitter for use with mythtv ?
21:12<cmorgan>yes
21:12<cmorgan>the enrique vidal improved transmitter works quite well
21:12<livesNbox>i'm just confused on what serial pin to connect to the transmitter
21:13<livesNbox>is it pin 7 that's the DTR ?
21:13<cmorgan>it tells you on the schematic
21:13<cmorgan>find the pinout for a serial port
21:13<cmorgan>and ensure that you are looking at it the correct way, ie, that you haven't flipped it over
21:14<livesNbox>looks like pin 4
21:14<thor_>if (!noGapless)
21:14<thor_>who write code like that?
21:14<livesNbox>http://www.aggsoft.com/rs232-pinout-cable/pinout-and-signal.htm
21:14<Captain_Murdoch>mdz, just run "cvs update" from your mythweb dir on the website. :) let it merge in the conf.php changes.
21:14<Captain_Murdoch>nevermind, you mean packages probably. :)
21:14<mdz>Captain_Murdoch: yep
21:14<thor_>gap --> negated (gapless) --> negated (noGapless) ---> test for negation (!noGapless)
21:15<thor_>bah
21:15<Chutt>heh
21:15<Captain_Murdoch>that's why I started running "cvs update" in that dir because I got tired of merging in changes.
21:15<Chutt>thor, i do stuff like that all the time
21:15<mdz>that's better than !!gapless
21:15<Chutt>captain_murdoch, that's how i do things
21:15<Chutt>there's actually a use for !!
21:16<Chutt>only in silly languages without a bool type, though
21:16<livesNbox>haha
21:16<thor_>how about friggin; if(gap)
21:17<Chutt>thor, mfd has a way to turn off gapless playback or something?
21:17<thor_>this is the faad stuff
21:17<mdz>code that uses !! is broken
21:17<Chutt>ah
21:17<Chutt>mdz, forces the value to 0 or 1
21:17<mdz>I know
21:17<mdz>but ?: is clearer
21:17<mdz>and when ?: is clearer you know it's bad
21:18<Chutt>i hate ?:
21:18<mdz>better than !!
21:18*pahli_bar hides
21:18<thor_>if, else, and lots of comments (call me crazy)
21:18<Chutt>!!'s probably faster
21:18<Chutt>well, no probably about it
21:18<mdz>I accept the challenge
21:18<Chutt>heh
21:18<Chutt>not that i'd use either
21:19<thor_>bah, that's like claiming << is faster
21:19<thor_>or >>
21:19<thor_>or whatever that thing is
21:19<mdz>Chutt: they assemble to exactly the same code
21:19<mdz>er, compile
21:20<mdz>even without -O
21:20<pahli_bar>mdz: if else or << >>
21:21<mdz>static int Chutt(int value) {
21:21<mdz> return !!value;

21:21<mdz> return value ? 1 : 0;

21:21<mdz>pahli_bar: those two
21:21<pahli_bar>!!value == value isn't it
21:22<mdz>pahli_bar: see above
21:22<gerhard>what happend to the picturecontrol in 0.14, nothing happens if I press F1, F2 etc??
21:22<mdz>gerhard: 'g' I think
21:22<pahli_bar>g in recordings

21:23<pahli_bar>mdz: ah.

21:29<cfreeze>anyone seen this error ripping a dvd? ERROR: file I/O problem in 'safe_write()': Input/output error
21:29<cfreeze>it made the vob, but not transcode it
21:30<thor_>does it say libdvdread: before the ERROR ?
21:30<cfreeze>nope
21:30<cfreeze>nothing...
21:30<thor_>you sure the VOB is complete ?
21:31<cfreeze>not "sure" but it's big enough to be...
21:31<cfreeze>:)
21:31<thor_>ff ?
21:32<cfreeze>?
21:32<cfreeze>drives not full, ffmpeg is installed
21:32<cfreeze>not sure what else you might have meant
21:32<thor_>fast forward
21:32<thor_>(see if vob is all there)
21:32<cfreeze>it's on the mythbox, have to scp it over to hear
21:33<cfreeze>here rather
21:33<thor_>dunno where that's coming from
21:33<cfreeze>going to take a while for 6 gigs
21:34<thor_>mtd log say anything ?
21:34<cfreeze>have to kill it and restart it in the xterm
21:34<cfreeze>did that last night, but didn't see anything other than that error
21:34<thor_>just look in the log
21:35<cfreeze>it in the dir?
21:35<thor_>locate mtd.log
21:35<thor_>(unless you specifically ran it from a console)
21:36<cfreeze>naa...but I don't have slocate installed on it
21:36<thor_>top of you dvdrip directory
21:37<cfreeze>nothing in that dir
21:37<cfreeze>except the vob
21:37<cfreeze>err correction, nothing in that dir
21:37<cfreeze>the vob is in the video dir

21:38-Ripp_ [~Ripp@ip192-85.chouteautel.com] left #mythtv ("Leaving")
21:38<cfreeze>good rip, no transcode though. I would expect the file to be transcoded down from the 6gig file to something reasonable
21:39<cfreeze>or is that not the way it works in myth?
21:39<Chutt>if you set it up to do that
21:39<Chutt>sure
21:39<cfreeze>it also looked like when it was ripping the vob, it wrote it directly to the vid dir
21:39<thor_>it transcodes if you tell it to do something other than perfect quality
21:39<cfreeze>aah
21:39<cfreeze>and perfect rip also means write it directly to the vid dir?
21:40<cfreeze>(just to make sure I havn't messed something up)
21:40<thor_>no intermediate files
21:40<cfreeze>aah...ok...makes sense now
21:41<cfreeze>one thing though, when I selected from the webfrontend to change themes, I'm getting an error
21:41<cfreeze>I've crawed through the DB to find where to reset it back to default but didn't find anything in the settings table
21:42<warlord>Chutt: do you mind if I restructure the code a bit to reduce "duplicated" code?

22:04<cfreeze>on separate backends, should the paths all point to the same locations (ie, I have nfs mounts)
22:04<cfreeze>or should each backend, have their own directories?
22:05<hadees>alright i should know this but i don't, i can't get irw or irxevent to work right, i was able to record the IR signals from my remote but i get connect: Connection refused when i try to do irw
22:05<hadees>and somthing similar with irxevent
22:05<hadees>anyone know why i am getting these errors
22:05<hadees>i used an ebuild for lirc and libirman
22:06<hadees>i am using an irman on ttyS0
22:06<cfreeze>hadees: if you have lirc in your USE line, it should pick it up automatically
22:06<cfreeze>no need to use irxevent
22:06<hadees>is lirc support good enough to use yet?
22:06<hadees>i haven't been following it
22:06<cfreeze>not a prob for me, been working nicely
22:07<hadees>do you still configure the keys the same?
22:07<cfreeze>in your .lircrc file
22:07<hadees>yeah
22:07<hadees>well i'll try it
22:08<cfreeze>you may need the .7 build of lirc if you are using a 2.6 kernel
22:08<cfreeze>it's in portage but masked
22:09<Chutt>warlord, go right ahead
22:09<Chutt>cfreeze, read mythweb's readme, it tells you how to reset the theme
22:09<cfreeze>Chutt: just copied the default
22:10<cfreeze>then changed it back to default
22:10<warlord>Chutt: ok. thanks.
22:10<warlord>It's almost looking like a fencepost error, but that doesn't match up, either.
22:10*warlord is just really confused about this.
22:11<cfreeze>is it ok to have separate backends point to the same directory or nfs?
22:12<cfreeze>it's not mentioned in 9.3 of the docs
22:14<mdz>cfreeze: if I answer, will you add it to the docs?
22:16<cfreeze>would if I could

22:49+mchou [~mchou@c-24-6-158-93.client.comcast.net] joined #mythtv
22:52<mchou>does the "default behavior" multiple tuner conflict resolution in .14 still record as much as it can one one tuner, or are there other "default" modes available now, like "use as many free tuners as early as possible?"
22:55<warlord>mchou: it hasn't changed.
22:59<mchou>hmm, I thought there was some earlier discussion for two default modes......
23:00<mchou>so I guess it didn't make it to .14 then.....
23:01<warlord>nope, it was delayed
23:02<mchou>on the mailing list there's also some talk about conflict resolution code being changed (got impression it's drastic), is that just rumor, or is there substance to that?
23:03<mchou>warlord, do you know if there was a technical reason why it was delayed (like not working right)?
23:04<warlord>I think a) he hadn't finished it completely, and b) didn't want to destabilize the code just before the release.
23:04<warlord>The discussion only occured last week!
23:04<mchou>hmm, tought it was earlier than that :)
23:04<mchou>thought*
23:04<warlord>maybe it was 2 weeks ago..
23:05<mchou>yeah, that's what I thought :)
23:05<warlord>same differece.
23:06<mchou>warlord, so who is making changes to conflict resolution logic (who did you mean by "*he* hadn't finished it completely")
23:07<warlord>I thought you said you were reading the mailing list?
23:07<mchou>yeah, but I can't keep names straight :)
23:07<warlord>well, why do you expect me to?
23:08<mchou>no, just hoping you knew offhand....
23:08<warlord>no
23:08*warlord is currently heads-down trying to figure out why ivtv-out is reading 35-40fps but only playing 30fps
23:09<Chutt>so no luck?
23:10<warlord>Chutt: no.. I can't see anything wrong...
23:10<warlord>unless ivtv is accepting the write() but then dropping packets.
23:10<warlord>but that wouldn't explain why it's doing this in livetv but when using a pre-recorded file.
23:10<warlord>er, but NOT when...
23:11<Chutt>so you can't tell if it's double counting from picture starts?
23:11<warlord>It doesn't look like it's double-counting.
23:12<warlord>(and again, why would it double-count on livetv but not a pre-recorded show?)
23:13<Chutt>i dunno
23:13<warlord>(it was a rhetorical question -- if you knew we'd have solved this already)
23:13<warlord>;)
23:14<warlord>Unless it's possible to get a "00000100" in the mpeg stream in the middle of a packet, I dont' see how it could double-count.
23:14<Chutt>well
23:14<warlord>(if it IS possible, then that would explain the double-counting)
23:14<Chutt>there's that little bit that copies the last 3 bytes over
23:14<Chutt>to grab frame headers split on the boundary
23:14<Chutt>might possibly be the culprit
23:15<Chutt>last bit of the process packet call
23:15<warlord>yea, I see it.
23:15<warlord>it looks right, but I'll look again..
23:15<Chutt>yeah, everything looks right to me as well
23:15<Chutt>you say this only affects live tv?
23:16+dblevins [~chatzilla@c-66-41-158-180.mn.client2.attbi.com] joined #mythtv
23:16<warlord>it affects live-tv and also currently-recording programs.
23:16<warlord>but finished recordings are fine.
23:16<Chutt>does it start after a seek, or immediately?
23:17<warlord>The wrong number of framesRead? Starts immediately
23:17<Chutt>allright
23:17<Chutt>i'll try to reproduce
23:17<Chutt>think my wife's recordings are finished
23:17<warlord>Want me to send you my patch so far -- it'll print out all the info for ya.
23:17<Chutt>sure
23:17<dblevins>I saw notes a cygwin port of the mythfrontend, great!!! Is that at all runnable?
23:17<warlord>ok.. stdby
23:18<hadees>alright i should know this but i don't, i can't get irw or irxevent to work right, i was able to record the IR signals from my remote but i get connect: Connection refused when i try to do irw
