11:28<gbee>Dibblah: mean we ignore programme data and only create new (update) channels from the xmltv data
11:29<gbee>no idea if it's currently working or not
11:30<gbee>using xmltv data to populate the channels table is somewhat redundant with analogue and digital scanning implemented
11:30<gbee>doesn't have the necessary info for tuning anyway

11:54<Dibblah>gbee: Yeah, that's what I've just been discussing on -users.
11:55<Dibblah>I'm wondering if it's worth adding code into mythfilldatabase to only fill rows in the channel table that have xmltvids.
11:55<Dibblah>The rest get added to newchannels or something similar.
11:55<Dibblah>Hmmm. Actually, that's unnecessarily complex.
11:56<Dibblah>A toggle in the guide that allows you to see channels that _don't_ have an xmltvid.
11:56<Dibblah>Then an edit function for channels.
11:56<Dibblah>(Extending the E in liveTV idea)
11:57<Dibblah>Of course, not for datadirect sources.
12:11|-|Defend changed nick to defend
12:12<gbee>Dibblah: users shouldn't be including channels in their xmltv configs unless they exist in the db, it's a waste of bandwidth and processing power
12:14<gbee>we've already got the 'visible' toggle - don't need another
12:15<Dibblah>Okay... But how does the user initially set it up?
12:16<gbee>when you add a new grabber you are prompted to select which channels you want guide data for
12:16<Dibblah>Punishing them by just adding them all as untunable channels seems unnecessarily cruel :)
12:17<Dibblah>gbee: hard to use in it's current incarnation.
12:17<gbee>for some people that seems to be too much effort, so they just add the entire list
12:17<Dibblah>Well, it IS too much effort ;)
12:17<gbee>Dibblah: hard, but not really impossible
12:18<Dibblah>I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to lower this barrier to entry a bit.
12:18<gbee>one of my xmltv changes will be to include support for the xmltv config api - which makes things prettier
12:18<Dibblah>The grabber config file isn't a standard format over all grabbers, is it?
12:19<Dibblah>Yeah, which no grabbers support currently? ;)
12:20<gbee>a couple do - but I can get the xmltv devs to push it along on their end
12:20<gbee>tbh I'm not sure whether the config file is standard, the content obviously isn't as each grabber has it's own config requirements
12:21<gbee>and it seems that the channel identifiers used in the config aren't always the xmltvids (would make things easier if they were)
12:23<gbee>I'm reluctant to let users add hundreds of channels to their xmltv config which they don't need - puts unnecessary strain on the source websites and they'll probably retaliate by blocking us
12:23<Dibblah>So don't make it too easy?...

12:25<Dibblah>I'm trying to think of a UI where having the grabber configurable through API is easy to use and failing.
12:26<Dibblah>The only configuration for things like tv_grab_uk_rt is the list of channels, in xmltv form.
12:26<gbee>probably won't be any easier than the current configuration, but at least it won't require the user to alt-tab to switch to the terminal
12:28<Dibblah>Argh. --list-channels is not in baseline.
12:29<gbee>it's messy, no question about that and ideas for simplfying it would be appreciated
12:29<gbee>nope, it's in apiconfig
12:30<gbee>3 grabbers currently support apiconfig
12:30<Dibblah>Well, I can do tv_grab_uk_rt, I think.
12:30<Dibblah>However, it doesn't help, still.
12:32<Dibblah>Okay. Whatever. Is the current implementation, in your opinion, of populating untunable channels wrong?
12:32<Dibblah>It may be useful for people going through an STB...
12:32<minra>cheers to open source... keep making things better. dont despair

12:33<gbee>Dibblah: I'd say that it shouldn't be the default behaviour, maybe add another setting to control it
12:33<Dibblah>I think I'm going to have to go through a setup and make notes.
12:34<Dibblah>I hate settings.
12:34<gbee>so do I
12:34<gbee>maybe we can look at the card/source type and make decisions based on that
12:35<gbee>but at the end of the day I think we'd still come back to wanting/needing a simple checkbox on the videosource page

13:42<stuarta>is this similar to the ticket you have open?
13:43<MrGandalf>well, I suspect they are related.. there are two bugs here I believe, this one and the other segfaulting in Mainserver::customEvent()
13:43<MrGandalf>relating to extradata
13:44<stuarta>the main thread is busy writing stuff out to the logfile using customEvent
13:45<MrGandalf>and sending messages
13:47<MrGandalf>I sometimes get segfaults on the slave backend.. I suspect due to all the messages being sent
13:51<stuarta>i'd suggest adding some extra debugging to find out what the "Unexpected response to MYTH_PROTO_VERSION" actually is
13:52<MrGandalf>I suspect it's because the backend is unresponsive due to it being too busy in customEvent()
13:52<MrGandalf>lemme add some verbose level to the frontend

14:48<MrGandalf>SSDP?
14:48<stuarta>some form of Service Discovery.
14:48<stuarta>sure Greyfoxx will be able to tell you exactly what
14:49<MrGandalf>is this what briand was talking about with upnp?
14:49<stuarta>yup

14:49<stuarta>possibly. just looking at the src code noe
14:49<stuarta>(see /tmp/backend.gdb on your box)
14:50<janneg>stuarta: SSDP::Run is proabbly the event loop
14:50<briand>MrGandalf: the backend being non-responsive (and top would show >99% CPU for that process)
14:51<MrGandalf>briand: probably would be 100% CPU if I wasn't doing so much logging out to a file :) you may be on to something
14:51<stuarta>although looking at it, the SSDP is waiting for more data

15:14<stuarta>it would help if we needed to valgrind the frontend.
15:14<Chutt>there is
15:14<Chutt>used for commflagging + the preview, etc
15:14<stuarta>any way of using it for a playback?

15:20<Chutt>sorry, phone :/
15:21<Chutt>i may be having to travel out to chicago tomorrow
15:21[~]stuarta files that one under wishlist....
15:21<Chutt>silly last minute travel stuff sucks
15:22<stuarta>would it be difficult to implement, i'm suspecting it wouldn't be that bad if the code's already there
15:22<Chutt>naw, wouldn't be that hard
15:22<Chutt>just have to add a new thing to select it, really.
15:22<jams>thankfully the chicago snow should be gone by tonight
15:22<stuarta>i'm thinking it would be best as a command line switch.

15:34<xris>stuarta: just curious, but what'd be the point?
15:35<stuarta>purely debugging
15:35<Dibblah>Sheesh. Out of the 7 major distros, 1 is shipping QT4 out of the box. Hurry up, people :)
15:36<janneg>which one? gentoo?
15:36<janneg>It will get better when kde4 is out
15:36<Dibblah>Of course. Let your users lead the charge into the unknown.
15:37<Tuomaz>What needs to be done to support qt4? (Complete rewrite?!)
15:37<Chutt>yes, essentially.
15:37<Tuomaz>oh
15:37<Dibblah>Started?
15:37<Dibblah>;)
15:38<Chutt>i looked into it
15:38<gbee>a fine tooth comb, a QT4 manual and a copy of the code
15:38<Chutt>all of mythwidgets.cpp has to go.
15:38<Chutt>which means all the popup dialogs, all the settings code, mythtv-setup
15:38<Tuomaz>Will MythTV gain something with QT4? Eyecandy, simpler code?
15:38<Chutt>we're using internal interfaces that no longer exist in qt4 for most of that stuff.
15:38<Dibblah>Still not time to look at it, though?
15:39<Dibblah>Tuomaz: Windows, hopefully, will be less painful.
15:39<Dibblah>Okay. A _little_ less painful.
15:39<Chutt>much easier windows port. a bunch of stuff will become simpler (threaded stuff is better in qt4)
15:43<Tuomaz>I'm not a MythTV dev, but I looked a litte at the code. I saw alot of mysql code with qt-(bindings/names). Does qt3 has some sort of mysql-bindings?
15:43<Chutt>err, yes?
15:44<Tuomaz>Ok, are those simplier to use than some native mysql-bindings?
15:44<Chutt>yes?
15:44<Tuomaz>ok
15:45<stuarta>theoretically allows you to abstract away the database you are talking to
15:45<Tuomaz>Ok, sounds nice.
15:45<stuarta>it's better for consistency to use the toolkit

16:27<jams>gbee thats a very good bet
16:28<CDev>Can a class be derived from 2 classes, 1 being QObject and still work correctly with Contect->addListener()?
16:28[~]stuarta nominates juski as "cool theme developer"
16:28<CDev>i.e. class A : public QObject, public B ....
16:29<CDev>I seem to segfault on the call to addListener.
16:29<xris>stuarta: yes.
16:30<stuarta>AFAIK, multiple inheritance doesn't play well with QT unless all the parent classes are QT
16:30<stuarta>i may however be completely wrong
16:30<stuarta>xris: :) i'm still using ProjectGrahem...
16:31<gbee>think a demo theme, using all the possible elements would be good, might inspire theme authors to try something different ;)
16:31<CDev>stuarta: Thanks, I'll try to make class B in the example above also inherit from QObject and see if that helps
16:31<stuarta>CDev: i'd have a search of the trolltech site for more info....
16:32<janneg>CDev: no, that won't work. http://www.cuymedia.net/doxygen-dev-docs/html/group__qobject__dangers.html
16:32<CDev>Already been looking,
16:32<Chutt>CDev, hey, playback on the dsm-320 is so-so
16:32<CDev>Chutt: Wireless... right?
16:32<Chutt>it seems to get stuck in a stuttery loop for 30 seconds at a time, generally 2 or 3 times an hour
16:32<Chutt>yes
16:33<stuarta>knew I should have stopped after "doesn't play well with qt"
16:33<CDev>Any common place in the stream? or when switching shows?
16:33<Chutt>randomly in a show
16:34<Chutt>doesn't repro in the same place when playing it again
16:34<cld2>I hate to be "that guy" but can anyone explain this to me, Im trying to switch from media center to mythtv, I am a unix/linux server admin by trade so Ive got some idea of whats going on, but X gui stuff is not my strong point... so the questions is, in media center all my colors look right/good in mythtv my reds and orange seem bleed together and when things move fast there is a rather obvious "shadow" I have an amd 1.8 ghz and a hauppag
16:34<stuarta>damn, i need to find some time to sort out the overcorrection in the a/v sync code....
16:34<CDev>It maybe when the backend is sending out notifications. !?
16:35<Chutt>CDev, dunno =)
16:35<CDev>I believe the default is every 1800 seconds.
16:35<Chutt>hum
16:35<Chutt>possibly
16:36<Chutt>i think it was happening more often than that, though
16:36<CDev>I can't remember if the DSM-320 requests the stream as one big file, or many smaller chunks (I think it's many small...)
16:37<CDev>If it is many small, then it may be getting interrupted responding to other devices asking about it.
16:38<CDev>Trying to think of the best way to figure out what's happening... drawing a blank.
16:39<CDev>Are you using the search feature of the 320?
16:39<CDev>(where you enter the time)
