10:20<jams>gbee,justinh what do you think about moving the titles out to title.xml ?

10:21-!-hereitcomes [n=sm@cpc3-bele1-0-0-cust131.belf.cable.ntl.com] has joined #mythtv
10:21<justinh>what titles?
10:22<justinh>ah hang on.. menu titles.. so they can be text? not fussed either way tbh
10:22<jams>yeah the menu titles.
10:22<justinh>rather see ui.xml chopped up :)
10:22<gbee>jams: menu titles? I've re-written all that to properly use mythui, I don't mind moving it, though what's the goal?
10:23<justinh>theme.xml isn't the most packed out, awkward or lengthy of files IMHO
10:23<jams>just thinking it would be easier to share changes and easier to keep them up to date.
10:24<hereitcomes>hey guys, I'm just looking into mythtv development now for my uni project. it's to allow users to schedule recordings remotely using digital pen and paper
10:24<hereitcomes>can you write a plugin that affects the backend only? I don't want the users to need a frontend running for the scheduling to take place
10:24<jams>not a big deal, just working with a theme now and thought it would be nice.
10:24<jams>theme.xml is the one xml file that can't be shared between themes.
10:25<justinh>jams: yeah I get it now. but how'd you make it optional for those who don't want them?
10:25<gbee>or in my case, I want text-only titles not images based ones (one of the things switching to mythui allows)
10:27<gbee>hereitcomes: there isn't currently a plugin infrastructure for the backend
10:28<jams>gbee- how do you define the txt titles?
10:28<jams>or is that not working yet
10:29<hereitcomes>oh.. thanks. can you tell me the best place to start looking into how recordings are scheduled? I've written everything except the mythtv side. I need to be able to at least pass in info over a java socket like "Mon 13/08/08 BBC1 17:40 18:00" and have something in the backend or a plugin be able to perform that .. I'm so lost in the dozens of classes!
10:31<jams>oh i see..you moved that to base.xml
10:34<gbee>jams: something like this: http://pastebin.ca/854763
10:34<gbee>jams: it's not committed to trunk yet (got to redo it, but it works)
10:35<gbee>uses mythuistatetype, so do the watermarks and icons
10:35<justinh>titles moved to base.xml ?
10:35<gbee>no
10:35<jams>gbee- then what it the menutitle area in base.xml ?
10:36<jams>isn't that for the text titles?
10:36<justinh>I'm confuzzled by that pastebin
10:37<gbee>in which theme? metallurgy? that's just temporary until I get this myththemedmenu rewrite into trunk
10:37<jams>yes metallurgy...ok
10:37<gbee>justinh: http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/wiki/MythUIThemeFormat
10:38<gbee>see the section on statetypes
10:39<jams>gbee- that format works for me. Assuming both image and text is listed there just to show how it's done.
10:40<gbee>jams: yeah, you can actually stick whatever you want in there image/text/elephant or a combination of those, two images, text and a canary
10:40<jams>move all that info to title.xml and then just include it =)
10:40<gbee>if you must ;)
10:40-!-jgarvey [n=jgarvey@cpe-024-163-032-204.nc.res.rr.com] has joined #mythtv
10:40<justinh>still don't get it
10:41<stuarta>hereitcomes, gbee: what about the telnet interface?
10:41<justinh>looks harder than it is now though
10:42<hereitcomes>stuarta: it all has to be completely automated, the project is for complete novices to just use pen and paper to record tv shows
10:42<gbee>justinh: more text per definition maybe, but extremely powerfull
10:42<stuarta>hereitcomes: you are loking for an interface into o the backend?
10:43<jams>gbee- with text titles does that need a define area?
10:43<justinh>think I'll give that a miss
10:43<hereitcomes>stuart: yes, to make it possible to manually record a show if given just a string with the relevant info
10:44<stuarta>have a look at the telnet interface. it'll give you a command window into the backend, then you can write the rest of the glue
10:45<gbee>jams: yeah, relative to the position but it can inherit from another object, so you need only type it once e.g. <textarea name="foo"><area>0,0,100,30</area></textarea> <textarea name="bar" from="foo"></textarea>
10:45<hereitcomes>stuarta: thank you, any tips on where to learn the commands needed?
10:45<stuarta>the source :)
10:45<jams>gbee- right..just making sure.
10:45<hereitcomes>haha.. great.
10:46<justinh>thought mythui was sposed to be making things easier
10:46<hereitcomes>*newbie tears*
10:46<hereitcomes>I knew reading was gonna come in handy someday
10:48-!-JoeBorn [n=rootmeis@adsl-75-2-248-214.dsl.chcgil.sbcglobal.net] has quit [Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)]
10:48<hereitcomes>stuarta: are you talking about mythprotocol commands? I don't think that's going to be enough to manually record a program
10:49<justinh>hereitcomes: if you can understand python take a look at xbmcmythtv for examples
10:49<stuarta>it may need extending
10:49<hereitcomes>I had monitored the packets sent from frontend-backend when I press "r" while watching livetv, and there's virtually no info sent
10:49<gbee>justinh: dunno who said that ;) the syntax for most things is pretty similar to the existing xml, but there are fewer widgets and each one supports a lot more features
10:49<hereitcomes>ok I'll shut up now, thanks guys I'll go have a mess about
10:49<justinh>gbee: looks like a nightmare to me right now
10:49<jams>this stinks..menu items can be read at 800x600 but they disappear at 1280x720
10:50<gbee>e.g. there is one list widget, but it can do horizontal, vertical and grid layouts
10:50<justinh>no images in buttonlist?
10:50-!-hereitcomes [n=sm@cpc3-bele1-0-0-cust131.belf.cable.ntl.com] has quit []
10:50<justinh>looks like only gradients :(
10:51<gbee>justinh: no buttonlist supports 4 different images, foreground images (think album cover art) and background images for three different states, selected, active and inactive
10:52<gbee>regular-background etc accept a "filename" argument, just isn't shown on that page
10:52<justinh>ah
10:52<gbee>it will fallback to gradients if no image is specified
10:53<gbee>the gradient stuff seems mostly to exist so you can mimic the look of existing libmyth widgets which use that grey gradient
10:53<justinh>be interesting to see what kind of uproar is coming along when a certain other entity proposes their UI rework. talk about reinventing the wheel, and making the tools to draw the new invention
10:53*justinh chuckles. who'd want to minic that? ;)
10:55<justinh>I'm sure I'll get my head around it eventually. today isn't a good day
11:22<justinh>can't believe I've basically had to turn down a free trip to Florida next weekend
11:24<stuarta>you mad?
11:25<justinh>just for one meeting? seemed a bit much

12:12<janneg>justinh: that's cheap. cheapest I've seen was 19 EUR
12:13<justinh>rather pay more & be safe in the knowledge it works in linux tbh
12:13<janneg>the one I saw had linux drivers
12:14<stuarta>just have to work out which reference design they use
12:18<justinh>cheapest the linuxtv wiki mentions as supported is asus mycinema U3000 at only £3 more :)
12:21<janneg>justinh: if it's not mini, it's not supported
12:22<mattwire>The KWorld dvb-t 300u works well too. Got mine from scan for about 9.50 but they've gone up a bit sicne
12:22<justinh>something from kworld works?! :)
12:23<justinh>janneg: and it's the mini :)
12:23<stuarta>i've got one of their dvb-t cards, works a treat
12:24<janneg>justinh: the kworld DVB-* pci cards are working, but they are using conexant's design
12:25<justinh>Hauppauge nova-t is still cheapest around here. think I'll just do that

13:21<MrGandalf>so, multirec is in..
13:21<MrGandalf>should be interesting
13:22<gnome42>Yep :)
13:22<MrGandalf>last time I tried that branch the guide was entirely too slow
13:23<MrGandalf>i hope it's been optimized
13:24<superm1>it's been mreged to trunk?
13:24<janneg>yes
13:24<superm1>ooh fun :)
13:25<janneg>MrGandalf: how was the guide too slow. reaction time on scheduling shows?
13:26<MrGandalf>janneg: reaction time.. I has asked Daniel a long time ago to mark channels which were viewable in the guide.. it can get confusing if you don't know what channels are on what transports.
13:26<MrGandalf>janneg: and that bit of sql I think really killled performance
13:26<MrGandalf>but I'll give it another try
13:26<MrGandalf>I'm probably a special case anyway..

14:59*stuarta goes for *the* upgrade
14:59*laga too scared :(
15:00<stuarta>cutting edge i am :-P
15:02<stuarta>however mythtv-setup asking *twice* about a DB upgrade is excessive
15:02*gnome42 suggests not doing livetv channel changing torture tests during your wife's favourite show. Just a suggestion. ;))
15:03<stuarta>heh
15:03<laga>gnome42: especially not if she's watching on the same frontend. :)
15:03<stuarta>we have a tv for that
15:03<gnome42>:)
15:08<gbee>gnome42: I think the only way to find out is to go through the diff and look for lines being removed that you know are unconnected with multirec, tedious job though
15:10<gnome42>gbee: ooh, really? sounds error prone.
15:11<gbee>well I don't know of another way, but I'd be interested to hear of one
15:12<hads>Congrats on the merge guys.
15:12<gbee>needs doing though, last couple of big merges to trunk have accidently reverted commits
15:12<gnome42>janneg: What's your thought on that? Is there a concern about possibly missing some changesets with the multirec merge?

16:24<janneg>lol
16:31<gnome42>janneg: My initial thought is that we might be able to remove that line. Maybe the bugs it was covering up have been solved. I'm going to try removing that line.
16:34<gnome42>janneg: it has been a long while since I had my head in that part of the code though.
16:37<janneg>gnome42: that code was merged with the diseqc branch merge. probably just an safeguard for dvb-s tuning
16:40<janneg>gnome42: http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/10493/
16:40<gbee>ughh, this nova-t 500 bug is driving me mad
16:41<gnome42>yeah, that was my thought too. Possibly not required now though?
16:42<janneg>not needed if the tuning is successful
16:43<janneg>gbee: the patch didn't helped?
16:43<gbee>janneg: still haven't tried it, I will but I've been a little busy
16:44<gbee>just lost three recordings because of it and I'm having to restart the machine to fix
16:46<gnome42>gbee: ouch
16:46<gbee>removing and reinserting the module just causes a kernel oops
16:51<gbee>I thought upgrading to the latest version of the driver and firmware might have helped, but it made no difference
16:52<gbee>well not quite, the old disconnect issue was better than this because at least I could fix it just by restarting the backend
16:53<gbee>or even better, just enable "on-demand" use of the cards and I'd only lose one recording

17:42<gnome42>oh, yeah. Two sats. with same frequencies :/
17:42<janneg>you could test with multiple frontends and --geometry if the glitches are caused by tuning
