00:25<Captain_Murdoch>cool on this end.... I have a recording setup with an alternate file and when I play it from the Watch Recordings screen, a popup comes up that tells me there are alternate files and asks which one I want to play. it has a button for the original file and a button for each alternate file listed in the DB.
00:27<Captain_Murdoch>now just need to do the other 90% of the work like handling the disk space for the alternate files, deleting them with the main recording is deleted, giving the transcoder the ability to keep both copies and set them up correctly, etc.. :)
00:28<Captain_Murdoch>proof of concept works though... time for bed...

03:53<gbee>yeah
04:28<gbee>could use another ffmpeg resync
04:29<stuarta>looks like it from the email in the -dev list
04:29<gbee>which one it this?
04:30<gbee>s/it/is/
04:30<stuarta>erm, it was a reply to a ticket with a reference to doom9.org
04:32<stuarta>#2498
04:33<gbee>yep, just found it
04:34<gbee>hadn't bothered reading it before
04:39<gbee>latest ffmpeg will play back the newer FLV

05:30<MrGandalf>FLV?
05:32<stuarta>flash i believe
05:32<MrGandalf>ah
05:33<MrGandalf>but will it fix ticket 2498? ;)
05:33<stuarta>i'm not convinced that additional stuff was even relevant to 2498...
05:34<MrGandalf>the frame repeat stuff?
05:34<stuarta>yeah
05:34<MrGandalf>hmm, shame
05:35<stuarta>i'll have to re-read tho
05:35<stuarta>could well be...
05:35<MrGandalf>it sounded feasable
05:36<stuarta>yeah. does after a re-read
05:36<MrGandalf>ivtc filter sorta helps
05:36<MrGandalf>(I think)
05:49<gbee>flv = flash video
05:53<gbee>MrGandalf: have you tried the latest svn version of ffmpeg?
05:53<gbee>for what it's worth, it's pretty quick to compile
05:53<MrGandalf>I've tried (nearly) the latest svn of Myth
05:54<MrGandalf>I should give it a go
05:54<gbee>http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/
05:54<MrGandalf>thanx
05:55<gbee>you'll probably want to enable a few things through configure
05:55<gbee>I use --enable-gpl --enable-pp --enable-static --enable-a52 --enable-faac --enable-vorbis --enable-libogg --enable-pthreads
05:56<MrGandalf>shouldn't need all those.. don't even think I have libs installed for all of them.
05:56<MrGandalf>but I see what you're saying
05:57<gbee>won't need the libs, but the rest won't hurt
05:57<MrGandalf>well, gotta march off to work.. cheers

09:27<j-rod>anyone else seeing grossly high cpu usage watching 720p streams when they're upscaled to 1920x1080p?
09:27[~]j-rod has been meaning to poke at this for a while now...
09:29<j-rod>my cpu (A64 3500) is only 40% busy playing back 1080i stuff in my 1920x1080p mode, and actually throttles back a bit
09:29<j-rod>cpu goes full-bore, 100% used playing back 720p
09:30<j-rod>same thing across multiple nvidia driver versions now
09:30<j-rod>xv scaling problem maybe?
09:30[~]j-rod should set up xrandr, and see how 720p playback is in a 720p mode
09:30<stuarta>backend or xorg using the cpu?
09:31<j-rod>frontend sucks up about 55-65% of the cpu, xorg the remainder
09:31<j-rod>everything still plays back perfectly fine, mind you
09:32<j-rod>until I ssh into the box and start fucking around with things while trying to watch something... :)
09:32<j-rod>(yum's cpu usage is still disgusting...)
09:35<j-rod>this box is a frontend-only, btw, so no backend cpu usage on it whatsoever

10:00<MrGandalf>j-rod: I'm not seeing that issue
10:02<j-rod>MrGandalf: what video driver?
10:03<MrGandalf>NVidia 8774
10:03<MrGandalf>on a 5700LE
10:03<MrGandalf>using an AMD 3000+ slightly OC
10:03<j-rod>and you're outputting at 1920x1080p?
10:03<MrGandalf>1080i
10:04<j-rod>hrm
10:04<j-rod>pretty sure 8774 was behaving the same way for me (currently running 9746)
10:05<j-rod>never had this problem back in the day when I was outputting at 1080i to my old set
10:05<j-rod>I'll try xrandr'ing to a 720p mode for 720p content

13:10<Chutt>i dunno
13:10<Chutt>would need to ask someone else :p
13:10<xris>heh
13:10<xris>I've just found that lyngsat is missing a bunch, and has no sense of organization (multiple different icons with the same name, etc)
13:11<xris>zap2it's are generally too small, etc.
13:11<Chutt>they are trademarked and all that
13:13<xris>yeah
13:13<juski>I'd guess just linking to them would be best & let whoever hosts them deal with the legals
13:13<xris>juski: that's the current plan.
13:13<xris>it's just annoying to deal with all of these inconsistencies.
13:13|-|slaine_ [n=glengray@84.203.137.218] has quit []
13:13<xris>bandwidth could be a big issue, too.
13:14<juski>pity nobody transmits icons in digital streams. they have the capability to do it but nobody ever has
13:15<juski>well, not for channels anyway. in the UK's mheg stuff they shove 'interactive' onscreen logos
13:15<xris>heh
13:15<xris>that'd be really nice if they did.
13:15<xris>or even if the stations kept downloadable press-kit logos easily available.
13:18<juski>actually Chutt, seen as our paths have crossed I'd like to ask about the possibility of getting a 'reflection' theme element for the opengl ui code. I've toyed with a few theme ideas in the past & I think a simple mirror image with an alpha fade to make a reflection would add some 'zing'
13:18<Chutt>sure
13:19<Chutt>want like a gradient fade?
13:19|-|stoffel [n=sfr@p57B4D85C.dip.t-dialin.net] has joined #mythtv
13:19<juski>yeah so the reflection tails off towards the bottom
13:19<Chutt>ok
13:20<Chutt>have to think how to do that, but, ok =)
13:20<juski>cool! thanks
13:20<Chutt>i'd just add it as an attribute, so you could do that to anything
13:21<juski>I did a quick lookup on how qt opengl elements are drawn & I don't think it's as simple as drawing it with an end coordinate less than the start coordinate if you get my meaning
13:21<Chutt>oh, we don't use qt for opengl
13:22<juski>no? haha. proves what I know then. anyway we could eventually have a bunch of other attributes like Z-tilt for showing stuff in perspective but it's probably already been considered
13:22<Chutt>yeah
13:22<Chutt>i was trying to keep most of the non-pure eyecandy stuff possible to do in plain qt
13:24<juski>cool, so maybe I can do stuff I can even use on my epia's puny graphics hardware :)
13:25<Chutt>well, a reflection will have to be opengl
13:25<Chutt>(only)
13:27<xris>I have imagemagick code to create them if you REALLY wanted to do it the hard way. ;)

15:00<xris>janneg: what was your reasoning for wanting to include it in /opt ?
15:01<xris>only thing I can think of as a solution would be to make a --perl-prefix option, since perl really does like to handle its own site vs vendor directory structure.

15:10<janneg>xris: I ahve to reason. keep non distro files out of /usr and installing as user
15:11<janneg>and it is no problem to have perl modules outside of the standard perl directories, just set PERLLIB

15:12<xris>just that average users won't be doing that.
15:12<xris>perl manages its own distro-vs-not by the whole vendor/site-perl directories... annoying, but that is how they seem to want it to work.

15:32<xris>yeah. just feels messy, which is annoying
15:35<janneg>the only other option that would probably work in most cases is use the prefix for perl only if it was in the configure options

15:36<janneg>i.e. if you only run ./configure it will get into the standard perl directory
15:37<janneg>but if the user chooses a different prefix it get installed under the prefix
15:38<janneg>rationale is that the user has probably to change $PATH and ld.conf if he uses a non-standard prefix
15:38<janneg>but that's imho to moch magic
15:39<xris>wow, got a random phone call from someone in AU asking about issues mythtv has run into with mpeg4 licensing.. apparently he has some gpl product that's starting to use ffmpeg, and wondered what issues mythtv has run into. He might pop in here later.
15:41<xris>janneg: that might actually work.. heck, could even just check and only pass the prefix to perl if it isn't /usr/ or /usr/local

16:34[~]j-rod wants to go home and play with myth box, but kernel bs beckons...
16:35<WZ__>good timing. i just sat back down. :) i'm at 1280x720
16:35<j-rod>mmm, cpu frequency scaling code...
16:35<j-rod>WZ__: and is that universal for 1080i and 720p recordings?
16:35<j-rod>or just for one or the other?
16:36<j-rod>I'm assuming if you've got the same problem as me, it'd only be w/1080i stuff
16:36<WZ__>thats the output for my display. 1280x720. everything is getting scaled to that

16:36<j-rod>hence no scaling
16:36<WZ__>oh source u mean. some channels will be 1080i
16:37<j-rod>see, 1080i content viewed in my 1080p output mode is ~40% cpu usage (on an a64 3500)
16:37<j-rod>720p content scaled up and viewed in that same 1080p hammers the cpu

16:46<j-rod>I didn't used to... unfortunately, not sure how long this cpu hit w/720p stuff has been going on
16:46<Chutt>it's a new options.
16:47<j-rod>yeah, I meant "there was a point in time it wouldn't have been something worth trying, if it had existed then" :)
16:48<j-rod>way back when, 720p was always lower cpu usage than 1080i
16:48<Chutt>were you scaling then too?
16:48<j-rod>yeah
16:49<j-rod>though I dunno if it only happened when I changed TVs (now running 1080p instead of 1080i)
16:49<j-rod>but the nvidia 8000-series drivers definitely had the same problem (at least, the last one)
16:50<j-rod>also dunno if it could be related to moving from a gf5 series to gf6 series card
16:50[~]j-rod apparently doesn't know shit...
16:50<Chutt>quite possibly

17:52<ssstormy>hello, is there any way to set up mythtv to flag commercials and then remove them from the video? (instead of just autoskip)
17:53<ssstormy>the only way I know of right now is to transcode, but to get them cut out I have to manually load the clip points
17:53<ssstormy>and I was hoping to set it up to automatically remove the commercials
17:53<Kronuz>GreyFoxx: remember I'll be using 18 cards ;)
17:54<Kronuz>so if it's designed for threads I guess it could use SMP
17:55<Kronuz>is transcoding done via software?
17:55<Kronuz>I mean, the PVR-150 has hardware encoder, right
17:55<Kronuz>but that's for the timeshifting and buffer, isn't it?
17:55<gbee>ssstormy: #mythtv-users
17:56<ssstormy>gbee, oh this is devel? sorry!
17:56<Kronuz>when I do the transcode then I suppose it has to "cut" and "append" the video, but I'm not sure if that requires re-encoding of it
