00:18dfgas instead of doing the small picture for pip can you split the screen in half or in 4 if you have 4 tuners?

09:56stoffel Chutt: just an idea: what about introducing a 'strings freeze' time period about 1 week before a release, to give translators time to catch up with all the changes since the last release
10:04--- ---> Roots^ [Mani@cpc1-with2-5-0-cust26.bagu.cable.ntl.com] has joined #mythtv
10:05Chutt stoffel, yeah, i've thought of that
10:06Chutt it's just hard to enforce :(
10:09stoffel well, who violates it will get warned twice. If it happens again, revoke cvs commit access :)
10:11stoffel any plans to release 0.16.1? We are currently working on updated german translations and would like to see them committed before

10:34dopester the dvb auto-pid stuff crushes a bunch of dvbrecorder crashes as a side benifit.. john pullan tested it this morning and worked like a charm..
10:36dopester chutt: i decided that the table parser to eliminate the need for signals all over the place (from daniels suggestions) that it will hang off of channel..
10:37dopester can be alot more generalized if the siparser link is in channelbase and allthe other classes that use it jsut check for if its null before attempting to use it to scan for channels, get guide, etc..
10:37dopester since everything but guide data is related close enough to tuning..

12:44jeffpc_ Hello, I just dump an idea here before I go back to sleep (I'm a bit sick)
12:45jeffpc_ Yesteday I noticed that when playing a DVD with xine the screensaver didn't turn on
12:45jeffpc_ when I played a myth recording later in mythtv
12:45jeffpc_ the screensaver DID turn on
12:46jeffpc_ I find this a bit annoying on a desktop where I have a use for a screensaver
12:46jeffpc_ that's it
12:46jeffpc_ later

16:29cfreeze Any plans to add OSD to mythmusic?
16:30cfreeze when your in visualize mode that is..
16:30cfreeze thinking about something similar to xmms' goom plugin
16:34stoffel_ that'd be great!
16:35cfreeze who's the main maintainer of mythmusic
16:36mikegrb the shadow
16:36stoffel_ well, thor checks most patches to mythmusic
16:38cfreeze not fun, most of the comments in the mythmusic/goom dir are not in english...
16:38stoffel_ heh, learn french :)
16:39cfreeze wonder how hard it will be to up the rev to 1.99
16:39stoffel_ 22:34 < stoffel_> that'd be great!
16:39stoffel_ :)
16:41cfreeze wonder what the initial branch point was

16:57Chutt cfreeze, goom in mythmusic is > 1.99, actually
16:58Chutt the text support was even more poorly written than the rest of the code, though, so i cut it out.

17:04cfreeze was down to the asm in the zoomfilter
17:05cfreeze even through with goom going though, you should still be able to make xosd calls I would think
17:05cfreeze s/even through/even/
17:05cfreeze or any of the other plugins

17:55javajunky *sigh* do I use qt3-designer to develop these plugins ?
17:55Wildgoose Chutt: Hey there. Did you get my message, asking if you could have a look at my audio patch (please..)?
17:55stoffel_ javajunky: afaik most people use $editor_of_choice
17:56javajunky stoffel: rightey, okey then :)
17:57javajunky wildgoose: You get that dvd ?
17:57Wildgoose Oh, yes! Thanks for that!! Haven't actually opened it yet though because I only got the computer running here a few hours ago!
17:57javajunky ah, no worries ;)
17:57javajunky I checked it on my windows box that there was a nuv on it, but never actually ran it, so it should work ;)
17:58Wildgoose Has been a nightmare week fitting this huge sub woofer, and then last night the wife had the car broken into and we have spent the day recovering the car in the rain with no rear window, etc...
17:58Wildgoose Thanks very much though!
17:58javajunky wildgoose: Bummer :( you fitted the huge sub to the car?
17:58Wildgoose Ha
17:59Wildgoose I will put up some photos in a few days.. Basically I have four 15" (huge) woofers mounted using the entire underfloor area of my living room as the box area

18:00Wildgoose Means you get a huge box to mount your speakers in and with a bit of digital EQ you get a pretty exceptional sub
18:00Wildgoose (as in down to subsonic levels at above reference level, ie power of a jet flying past at 15Hz...
18:01javajunky your neighbours must love it ;)
18:01javajunky (allegedly the missus should too ;) ]
18:01Wildgoose Yeah, interesting. Hope they aren't reading here... They are quite old folks though and the walls are pretty thick
18:02javajunky base, especially down to that frequency has an amusing propencity to travel <g>
18:02javajunky s/base/bass, tired ;)

18:04dopester wildgoose: closing in on auto-pid / the rest of the patch.. might actually be this weekend
18:05javajunky dopester: Mmm dvb auto-pid, looking forward to this *a lot* ;)

18:57Wildgoose Chutt: Heh! Just asking! I'm a busy bunny too! I didn't think I was out of order to ask the question though? Sorry, I didn't mean to get you back up, I was just trying to keep my own little projects moving along since there seemed to be a bit of interest from two other people in doing some programming on the audio code.
18:58Wildgoose My apologies for causing offence. It was not intended. Please don't deliberately sideline me for bugging you.
18:58Wildgoose Over and out (time for bed here)
18:59javajunky cu wildgoose :)
19:00Wildgoose dopester: Great to here the patch is developing well. Drop me a line when it's ready for some intensive testing. I don't really have a test setup here, but I would be interested to see what you are up to. The current setup actually works extremely well for me here. Other than the odd strange bug which causes Mythfrontend to just abruptly die in a way that gdb can't catch (stating "killed" and nothing more), it is nigh on flawless
19:06dopester oh this may not be for you yet then.. i odn't have the guide stuff working yet, but a much simplier setup and a good number of threading fixes are there
19:13javajunky dopester: How's it on handling the pids, I'm rather more interested in the pid issues than the guide stuff, any movement on that is great :)
