11:02Truin well, this $5 computer ended up not being so bad after all... despite the problems others have had, I'm somewhat satisfied.
11:02Truin not sure where this supposed mpeg1/2 accelleration is, but, it runs mythtv, so I'm happy.

11:16TomW is there a developers IRC for mythtv?
11:17Truin I don't think any are awake at the moment.
11:17TomW do they chat here or elsewhere?
11:17Truin here
11:17Truin isaac is in here a lot, at least.
11:18TomW there is an annoying bug in myth that I would like to get resolved and need some pointers as to where to look for the code it may be in.
11:18TomW k
11:18Truin good luck. :)
11:18Truin I've found some annoyances as well. Like, the inability to select Yes or No from the Mythtv exit screen. :)
11:18Truin and it only happens on occasion... really weird.
11:19mikegrb TomW: this is developers irc channel
11:19TomW when you edit a recorded program, then play it back, sometimes (most times) myth does not properly process the "delete from" marker and simply continues to play through that marked section.
11:19mikegrb best time is afternoon/evening us time
11:19TomW k
11:19TomW :) never knew a programmer that would watch a sunrise.
11:21TomW heh, I've enjoyed my myth box so much, I was considering adding another 250 Gig drive to the volume.
11:22mikegrb heh yes
11:24Truin I *wish* I had that much space... my tv drive is all of 30gb. :(
11:24Truin I'm very picky about what gets recorded, and how quickly it gets removed after being watched.
11:28TomW heh, yeah, I have a 246 Gig volume now and after editing some shows + marking them as "no delete", I am starting to get a little concerned about "free" space.
11:29TomW probably what I need to do is get the geforce card working, ditch the pvr-350 TVOUT, and get the DVD recorder working.
11:30Truin question about the pvr-350.... I know it does tv-out - is that just for mpeg playback, or does ALL video work in the tv-out? I.E., console, X, etc...
11:30--- ---> Netminder [~matt@pcp05133460pcs.elkrdg01.md.comcast.net] has joined #mythtv
11:33TomW Truin: yes, I have it configured as a 720x480 framebuffer for X, I can see the KDE desktop and invoke programs.
11:33Truin schweet.
11:34TomW I don't use anything but myth on it though.
11:34Truin cuz I got a 250 now, and I want a 2nd tuner, but that would take up the other PCI slot I have (only have 2).
11:34Truin so, I wouldn't be able to toss in a GeForce for video out, so, I want to use the PVR-350 for tv-out.
11:34Truin And yes, this will be a set-top dedicated MythTV box. :D
11:35TomW Truin: well, don't get too excited by the pvr-350, I am not satisfied with it. The one major problem is playing back DVDs. Using the patched mplayer, the sound and video do not sync up. I use an audio delay value for mplayer to sync them, but, the value changes for each DVD!!!
11:36Truin not too worried 'bout that. We have a set-top DVD/VCR combo... this will be strictly for recording/playing TV, mp3's, and the weather, browser, and gallery plugins.
11:36Chutt why the hell would you use a computer to play dvds?
11:37--- <<-- billytwowilly [~chris@h24-66-18-138.ed.shawcable.net] has quit ("Leaving")
11:37TomW I bought a GeForce MX 440 yesterday with the intention of using the card's TVOUT to replace the pvr-350's in the hopes that by using accellerated X video I wouldn't be suffering from the variable audio delay problem with DVDs.
11:38Chutt use a dvd player for dvds.
11:38TomW Chutt: 'cause I don't have a DVD player?
11:38Chutt go spend $50 on a cheap one.
11:38Chutt ie, the same amount you wasted on a crappy video card.
11:38TomW bah! I have a Plextor 708A in the machine now, why would I need to put more equipment on the shelf?
11:38Truin oh, c'mon chutt... that's like saying "don't spend days setting up a mythtv box, just go buy a TiVo." where's the fun in THAT? :)
11:38Chutt no, it's not
11:39Chutt software dvd players _suck_
11:39Truin yes, yes they do.
11:40TomW I would like to get rid of the: music CD 5 cd player and the VCR in favor of a myth box, the goal was to add the box and also get DVD playback, record capablities. I am almost there now.
11:41TomW Chutt: actually, I don't see anything wrong with the DVD video I have now?
11:41Chutt you're blind, then.
11:41Chutt but, whatever
11:42Truin I guess it also comes down to the quality of your viewing device.... I could see how a DVD, played back software or hardware, might look the same on a 24" Sanyo TV, but look entirely different on a 52" 1080i HDTV.
11:43Chutt all you really have to do to see the difference is play back a scene where the camera pans
11:43TomW Chutt: yes, legally, I suppose that I am. Also, I do not have a high def tv either, so what is the difference? If I was running high def then it would be an issue, but not with crappy ntsc video.
11:44Truin vertical tears?
11:44Chutt naw, jerky video
11:44TomW yeah, it does do that.
11:44Chutt which is completely unacceptible to me.
11:45TomW I don't like the idea of the MPAA telling me how many times I could play a dvd though, I would rather keep the solution that I have and have the fantasy of some control over my entertainment.
11:45--- ---> cmorgan [~cmorgan@cpe-68-118-245-76.ma.charter.com] has joined #mythtv
11:45Chutt nice spurious legal argument
11:46TomW shrug
11:46TomW I am also running an Athlon 2800 + 1 gig of DDR in that machine...
11:47Chutt what's that have to do with anything?
11:48TomW the video pans very smoothly, the only time that I see the "jitter" is when you have something like an animated sign (like for a gogo bar or something).
11:49Chutt that really has absolutely nothing to do with processor speed
11:49TomW so, I do expect to see an improvement with the geforce card as it will be using accellerated video, whereas the pvr-350 tvout is not.
11:49TomW no? rendering time has nothing to do with it?
11:49Chutt nope.
11:50TomW ok, then why do I need the drop frames parm when using mplayer?
11:51Chutt because mplayer is a crappy piece of software that has absolutely no code to attempt to keep jitter down?
11:51Chutt just a guess
11:54TomW well, I'll give the geforce card a try, I am not sure just how good it will work as the pvr-350's mpeg player is pretty good (fast). The audio delay is terrible with the pvr-350 + mplayer though.
11:54TomW you can set the delay value, get the lips to sync with the audio, then an hour later hit do a skip-back and lose sync.
11:54cmorgan how can you have ANY audio delay with the 350?
11:55cmorgan the card itself takes care of everything
11:55TomW naw, not with dvds
11:55cmorgan i have no noticeable delay when watching recordings through myth
11:55cmorgan so i'd imagine mplayer is the source of your delay
11:56TomW the playback of the nuv files is excellent, no sync problems, it only shows up on dvd playback.
11:56Truin have you considered a different audio sub-system? Like, ALSA versus OSS?
11:56TomW cmorgan: yeah, they split the video + audio streams.
11:57cmorgan isn't a dvd encoded in mpeg2?
11:57Chutt the 350 doesn't do ac3 audio.
11:57cmorgan ahh
11:57TomW Truin: yes and no, I had no reason not to use ALSA, just that I spent so much time getting everything else running. I am self-employed, so I had to get back to work.
11:57Chutt so you'd have to split it.
11:58cmorgan makes sense
11:58Chutt of course, it's basically be no effort to get things syncing properly with a little dev time
11:58TomW Chutt: yeah, the mplayer patch looked to be a quick hack.
11:59TomW I do a lot of embedded programming stuff, video / audio is a whole new thing for me.
12:01TomW <fantasy> maybe mythtv will become so popular that the demand for an integrated MPEG + AC3 + AUDIO + TVOUT solution will met by a manufacturer for less than $100. </fantasy>
12:04Matt almost achievable
12:04o_cee Chutt: did you you manage to fix the segfault?

14:06_bitbyte any of you guys know if an "RCA s/pdif conntoector" is the same as "Coaxial digital"?
14:06_bitbyte connector*
14:06tz-afk _bitbyte: yup
14:07tz-afk coaxial really describes the cable not hte plug, but in S/PDIF it's the same thing
14:07_bitbyte you're certain?
14:07_bitbyte ok
14:07_bitbyte i thought so
14:07_bitbyte but heck, you never know these days
14:08_bitbyte dfi makes a very nice ath mobo with spdif in and out onboard for 58 bux
14:08_bitbyte nforce chipset
14:08_bitbyte only needs a video card
14:08tz-afk S/PDIF has two connectors: optical and copper -- copper is RCA
14:09_bitbyte i knew the coaxial digital had an rca connectork i wasnt certain tho if it was considered spdif
14:09tz-afk yup
14:09tz-afk S/PDIF describes the logical protocol, IIRC
14:09tz-afk i.e. the 1s and 0s do the same thing no matter if it's optical or electrical
14:10_bitbyte well, thats what i tought, but it always pays to make certain
14:11_bitbyte tz, any experience with DFI motherboards?
14:11_bitbyte can you suggest any other motherboardds with dpsif in and out that doesnt cost an arm and a leg?
14:13tz-afk nope
14:13tz-afk I am using a shuttle x/pc right now
14:13tz-afk with a pvr350
14:19pcjabber question, in CVS, what does the DoPlay() function (mythtv/libs/libmythtv/tv_play.cpp:1733) do?
14:23_bitbyte tz, is there an economical way to convert from toslink to coaxial?
14:24_bitbyte poop, it's microatx

14:28pcjabber question, in CVS, what does the DoPlay() function (mythtv/libs/libmythtv/tv_play.cpp:1733) do?
14:39tz-afk _bitbyte: yeah just tap off the ground and data line directly into the coax cable -- in all the stuff I've seen there are no secodary buffers or anything
14:39tz-afk the signal comes from the sound card directly to an RCA female connector, and then to the data line on a TOTX optical transmitter; that's it

16:44dataworm is there a quick way to fix the Zip/Postal Code in the configuration so that it would accept Canada Postal Code... XMLTV do accept it but Mythtv just refuse to let me enter it... Instead of 5 digit, the format is X9X9X9
16:46Captain_Murdo| thought that was fixed a long time ago.
16:47Captain_Murdo| are you entering a space or not? maybe try the opposite.
16:47dataworm really.. I must be out of date then :(
16:47Captain_Murdo| I mean like a year so unless you're running 0.7 or so. :)
16:48dataworm Captain_Murdoch : I guess I typed a space... and that what fucked up
16:48dataworm thanks for your the hint :)
16:48* mikegrb gives Captain_Murdoch a cupcake
16:49thor_ H0H 0HO
16:49* Captain_Murd swallows it whole
16:49mikegrb 4~
16:49dataworm workind well now :)
16:49dataworm thanks
16:50dataworm So used to get software/website that screw this, than the first reflex is to think it's screwed
16:51Captain_Murdo| myth has developers in quite a few countries and I think several who submit patches are from Canada.
16:53dataworm Is there way to tell XFree86 to not use part of the screen? I am using a HDTV Rear Projection TV and I loose some of the space, I know I can fix that space area in mythtv, but it's still annoying for other software...
16:54dataworm I guess many of you went thru the same issues

17:20mdz I just want to trim stuff I've marked in a cutlist

19:28rkulagow i wonder how many of the schemes to get around the 2 second live tv delay will net any code changes.
19:29thor_ 110 channels, 110 hw encoders, it's the only solution !
19:29billytwowilly| heh.
19:30rkulagow yeah, but there is still going to be a _2 second delay_ between live tv and what we're watching.
19:30rkulagow that would make me nuts!
19:30rkulagow also, can i synchronize the audio and video between multiple frontends so that i can watch the same program as i move from room to room?
19:31billytwowilly| heh. I just thought of the solution to the 2 second problem.
19:32billytwowilly| start off by playing direct from the tv tuner card to the screen and then insert extra frames until you have 2 seconds buffer. do that over a minute or so.
19:32* billytwowill waits to be told he's dumb.

19:34thor_ yeah, watch channel 3 for 6 seconds, then channel 2 for 1 minute, that'd be righteous
19:34billytwowilly| oh.. heh..
19:35billytwowilly| that's worse than my fix for the 2 second wait;)
19:37* billytwowill goes to read the mythtv-users mailing list archives.

20:49Chutt Our goal here is to provide a better way than scraping for the open-source community (and other miscellaneous freeware types) to get television listings data for North America.
20:49Chutt heh
20:49Chutt This isn't a beta test. This is the real thing.
20:49Chutt What we intend is that when you start distributing your software to the masses (assuming you do this in a non-commercial manner), you'll also give your users instructions on how to sign up for a data feed from Zap2it Labs, using the certificate code we've given you.
20:53Chutt very interestink.
20:53Chutt someone needs to write that translator =)

21:07Chutt anyone played with david's new scheduler?
21:07cmorgan quiet tonight it seems
21:09jams Chutt, just compiled it, now I need to wait for the wife to go to bed.
21:10jams With the oscars on that could be a while
21:27kvandivo i've updated cvs with it.. i turned on the 'record higher priority items later if a lower priority item needs to be scheduled now'
21:28kvandivo haven't had much opportunity to "play" with it, though..
21:28kvandivo i added a second tuner to my master backend and have been trying to track down strange moire type patterns that i have on both feeds now
21:29* mikegrb moires kvandivo

21:34davatar crap.. I probably should have realized mythweb is still protocol 3 before I upgraded :(
21:38mdz Chutt: more A/V sync talk on theora-dev
21:38mdz more claims from the xiph guys that it is someone else's problem
21:38mdz in other news, Theora still not being used for anything anywhere
21:46Chutt kvandivo, ah

21:49mdz Chutt: so I finally found what was causing that long-standing audio weirdness of mine
21:49Chutt yeah, saw your commit
21:49mdz Chutt: do you happen to remember why that code was there in the first place? it seems to predate the current edition of the CVS repository
21:50Chutt probably came from the original nuppelvideo codec
21:52Chutt glad it's fixed =)
21:55mdz it was making me crazy
21:55mdz the last straw was when I tried to record something, and it got the wrong audio channel, and I rescheduled it, and it happened again
21:56Chutt mdz, did you see the post to the zap2it forums i was quoting from above?
21:57mdz Chutt: no, but I saw your quote
21:57Chutt there was more, but that was the gist of it
21:57mdz no pun intended
21:57Chutt heh
21:59Chutt oh well
21:59mdz I got as far as using their sample Perl grabber to pull down some sample listings
21:59mdz sure is fast
21:59Chutt i'm officially unemployed in a few hours
21:59Chutt maybe i'll feel like working on support for it, now that i have more time
21:59mdz any prospects?
21:59Chutt haven't looked at all
21:59Chutt last couple weeks were really busy
22:00Chutt company wants to keep me on on a consulting basis while they can, though
22:01Chutt i should find something else, though
22:02Chutt heh
22:02Chutt there's a vbscript-based grabber in their forums
22:02Chutt doesn't use a soap lib, just http
22:04mdz how do you think it makes sense to split things up now that there can be multiple formats for program data?

22:05Chutt well, probably could split the 'call xmltv and parse it into an internal structure' bits of filldata.cpp into a separate file
22:06Chutt then do the 'call dd grabber and parse it into an internal structure' in another file
22:06Chutt that'd leave all the upper level logic in filldata.cpp
22:07--- Netsplit orwell.freenode.net <-> irc.freenode.net quits: paulproteus, Mumintrollet, poptix, bdale, _rkulagow, Teflon-, pigeon, vagrant, ahbritto
22:07mdz I'm thinking it'd probably be good to make classes for the grabbers at this point
22:07mdz so they look more or less the same to filldata
22:07Chutt eh
22:07Chutt could
22:07mdz and move all of that logic out of filldata
22:07mdz there's a lot of (if grabber == blahblah) big switch statements
22:07Chutt there's only ever going to be a couple of these, though
22:07--- Netsplit over, joins: _rkulagow, pigeon, paulproteus, vagrant, Mumintrollet, Teflon-, poptix, ahbritto, bdale
22:07mdz even the existing xmltv ones could benefit
22:08Chutt i think making classes would make it a little less obvious as to how to add new ones
22:08Chutt since a bunch of em act very similarly
22:09Chutt and all of that is just building the command line and deciding how much data to grab

22:44stevenm Hi all
22:44stevenm I have a very strange problem
22:45stevenm I just reinstalled Gentoo, and when I use tvtime, I get these strange noise lines in the picture. Other tv programs do not have this problem
22:45stevenm The noise looks like sparse black lines starting in the middle of the image and heading horizontally outward.
22:46stevenm Has anyone ever had such a problem and can recommend a fix?
22:52mikegrb hey stevenm
22:52mikegrb guess what?
22:52stevenm mikegrb, what ?
22:52mikegrb this is #mythtv not #tvtime, it is a channel for discussing development of mythtv, it isn't even for mythtv user support
22:53stevenm well, then, care to point me to a more appropriate place?
22:53stevenm I tried all the usual things, stfw until the cows come home, #tvtime, all that
22:53stevenm besides, mythtv uses tvtime, so I figured someone here would know
22:53stevenm if nowhere else
22:54mikegrb well #mythtv is certainly not an appropriate place and mythtv doesn't use tvtime
22:54-!- Irssi: #mythtv: Total of 63 nicks 0 ops, 0 halfops, 0 voices, 63 normal
22:54stevenm damn controller card died on hd, all is lost, just trying to get everything working again..
22:54stevenm sorry.
