00:00<Chutt>just close it and leave the existing open there

00:01<Chutt>easiest thing to do, and it doesn't have to mess with nonblocking stuff when it doesn't need to
00:02<inman>that's what the tv code does, i just hadn't read that far. :-P

00:23<Ndiin>I must be having some serious hardware problem of some sort, heh
00:24<Ndiin>kernel panics on cd reads, openoffice locking all video/input..
00:24* Ndiinmutters
00:24<Ndiin>And whats funny about the openoffice thing..
00:24<Ndiin>I ran it through a tunneled X connection from my laptop.
00:24<Ndiin>And the desktop locked.
00:25<Ndiin>It happens the same way from ssh -X and local running.
00:31<inman>launching openoffice on the laptop locks video on the desktop?
00:32<inman>through ssh, of course.
00:35<Chutt>only very slightly off in my framesPlayed stuff
00:35<Chutt>edit mode works great now =)
00:37<inman>better, moegreen
00:39<Chutt>poptix, my ears will eternally thank you if you fix that whine :p

00:41<Ndiin>inman: correct. It displays the main window, lasts about 5 seconds, and then *lock*
00:42<Ndiin>inman: same exact thing happens when run locally, as well.
00:42<inman>i wonder what's happening in those 5secs.
00:42<Ndiin>Makes no sense at all to me.
00:42<Ndiin>I'm thinking its a video problem..
00:42<Ndiin>maybe ill try swapping nvidia drivers
00:43<inman>why would video come into play when you're tunneling X?
00:43<Ndiin>it still has to display at some point
00:43<inman>sniff the network and see what's going on.
00:43<Ndiin>I'm just tunneling the window
00:43<Ndiin>not the entire server
00:44<inman>er, you're launching an app on the desktop and tunneling the output to the laptop.
00:44<inman>you are worried about video drivers on the desktop?
00:44<Ober>oh lord
00:44<Ndiin>Running from the laptop, displaying on the desktop
00:44<inman>you are worried about video drivers on the desktop?
00:44* Oberjust realized his mencoder script was sizing his video wrong
00:45<-- rkulagow_( has left #mythtv
00:45<Ndiin>yes, thats the only possible thing I can think of.
00:45<inman>do other apps work fine in the tunnel?
00:45<Ndiin>because the *same* thing happens if I run openoffice locally on the desktop.
00:45<Ndiin>But openoffice locally on the laptop, works fine.
00:46<inman>it seems more likely to me that openoffice is looking at your cdrom drive, which we know can hose the box.
00:46<inman>oh wait, you're running it remotely.
00:46<Chutt>get the craziest people emailing me
00:46<inman>yeah, i think maybe you're right.
00:46<inman>Chutt: do they want to rip movies to nuv for us?
00:47<Chutt>this was just some random guy wanting me to add dvd support
00:47<Ndiin>inman: Just to confirm, running remotely from the desktop onto the laptop works fine, as well. So definitely a display problem on the desktop
00:48<Ndiin>very strange, though
00:48<inman>you could also test tunneling from desktop->desktop.
00:49<Ndiin>yes, but running locally locks, and remotely locks, so I dont think its worth bothering
00:49<Ober>amazing compression
00:49<Ober>-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1690311720 Apr 28 22:24 millernew.mpg
00:49<Ober>-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 309582972 Apr 28 23:29 millernew.mpg.divx
00:49<inman>yeah, cause you cut your resolution in half :-P
00:49<Chutt>the default bitrate for the mpg files is huge, too
00:49<Ober>same size
00:49<Ober>just need to force aspect
00:50<Chutt>it could be half what it is, easily, without losing any appreciable quality
00:50<Ober>4:3 or it looks odd
00:51<Ndiin>I'll try updating my nvidia drivers to 4363
00:51<Ober>so how big is the data without being encoded -> mpeg2?
00:51<inman>really big
00:51<Chutt>w * h * 3 / 2 * 29.97 * seconds
00:52<inman>you need some parens there.
00:52<Chutt>yeah, whatever
00:52<Chutt>that's bytes, of course
00:53<Chutt>only thing that the pvr cards don't do now is generate a preview pixmap
00:53<Ndiin>inman: its multiplication/division.. no parens needed =P
00:53<Chutt>and that should be easily done tomorrow
00:54<Chutt>moegreen, any timeline for when you're going to check that in? =)
00:54<inman>Ndiin: that would make the size smaller with duration. ;-)
00:54<Ndiin>er, no it wouldnt
00:54<moegreen>Chutt: well I just checked in the class changes, i want to add the program arrows at least - then I have to do a few more tests because I was having some random problems with the guidegrid earlier - but it seems to be fine now - heh.
00:55<inman>moegreen: i would really like to be able to adjust the size of the normal epg as we can the alternate epg (rows/cols)
00:55<Chutt>i just want to update the webpage =)
00:55<moegreen>inman: you can
00:55<inman>moegreen: how?
00:56<inman>look, i've stumped him. heh.
00:56<moegreen>inman: right now (the code i have written) uses the alternate epg channel and time settings for both
00:57<inman>oh, the stuff that ain't in cvs. cool, looking forward to it, then.
00:57<moegreen>inman: the 'normal' epg will always come up if there is no video, and if there is video the alternate epg will come up

01:04<Ndiin>Option "RenderAccel"
01:04<Ndiin>comment it out
01:04<Ndiin>and it works fine.
01:05<Ndiin>Put it back in, *boom*
01:05<inman>that's a known feature.
01:05<Ndiin>The free locking?
01:06<inman>yep. comes with every tarball at absolutely no cost to the victi^Wconsumer.
01:08<inman>for those listening here and not on the ivtv list, there seems to be a new $90 avertv card using the iTVC15 chipset, so it should work soon with the pvr-x50 support in myth/ivtv.
01:08<Morph>was it determined if that card had IR capabilities?
01:08<inman>what's nice is that for $90 you are essentially getting the chipset on the pvr-350.
01:09<Morph>its got the decoder too?
01:09<inman>Morph: i dunno, but your ir is working, is it not?
01:09<Morph> is..was just wondering :)
01:09<Morph>saw a message about it not having IR..wasnt sure if I missed something else.
01:10<inman>two 1hr recordings with pvr vary by 20meg, each ~3650meg.

01:12<Timon>inman: sup b?
01:12* inmanflips to cowboy beebop.
01:13<Timon>160gb WD 8mb Cache HD at CompUSA for $130 after rebates
01:13<inman>what speed is it?
01:13<Timon>me thinks, lemme look
01:13<Timon>yeah, 7200
01:14-!-moegreen [] has joined #mythtv
01:14<Timon>7200 to slow for you?
01:14<Timon>hey moegreen
01:14<inman>too fast.
01:14<Timon>Hows that inman?
01:14<Timon>They also have the PVR-250 for $100 after rebates
01:14<moegreen>Timon: ?
01:15<Timon>moegreen: ???
01:15<moegreen>oh, heh...nevermind
01:15<Timon>ok :-)
01:16<inman>i only want 5400's, and anything larger than 120gig breaks the early ide specs.
01:16<inman>which means i can't toss it into a tivo when myth dies off. :-P
01:16<Timon>Do you have anything that needs to maintain compatability with the early spec?
01:16<Timon>They have 100's and 120's for cheap too.
01:17<inman>seriously though, i'd rather buy cheap disks in quantity than large disks in fewer numbers.
01:17<inman>spindles matter, density really doesn't.
01:17* inmandoesn't live in CA so he only pays $40/month for electricity.
01:18<Timon>I pay $65, but thats with a hot tub (That adds $15 - $20 / month) and three computers
01:19<Ndiin>multiple drives means your less likely to have them all fail simultaneously =p

01:20-!-PBlue_away [] has joined #mythtv
01:21<Timon>Ndiin: Although a buddy of mine, his mail server has a raid 5 config, and one drive failed on him, then in the process of replacing the failed drive, a second drive failed :-)
01:21<Timon>thank goodness for backups
01:22<inman>that's typical; the extra heat load from syncing causes failures.
01:22<inman>that's why you have a burn-in process before deployment. ;-)
01:22<Timon>Although, I am thinking more and more about how to backup my server which does my mail,web,ftp,dns,file, etc.
01:23<inman>i catch so many disk failures during burn-in it makes me wonder about the stuff i use at home that doesn't see serious load.
01:23<inman>if you go with raid5, realize that you can arbitrary group sizes with multiple local/global spares.
01:23<Timon>inman: he did burn them in. He did all sorts of crap to the machine. He found a spam program and spewed gobs and gobs of mail at the machine for a while to see how well it would hold up
01:23<inman>most people don't realize you can have more than one spare in a global raid (let alone local groups).
01:24<Timon>I didn't know that either
01:31<poptix>i've got some software raid-5 setup
01:31<poptix>works very well.
01:35<Timon>inman: what raid config would you use for a home server? Needs to be pretty cheap
01:36<Timon>I was thinking raid 1
01:41-!-_inman_ [] has joined #mythtv
01:41<Timon>[21:39] <Timon> inman: what raid config would you use for a home server? Needs to be pretty cheap
01:41<Timon>[21:40] <Timon> I was thinking raid 1
01:42<_inman_>well, why do you want raid?
01:42<Timon>fault tollerance
01:42<Timon>which is why I was thinking either raid 1 or 5
01:42<_inman_>what do you mean by fault tolerance?
01:43<_inman_>i'm asking this stuff because i don't want to lead you. :-)
01:43<Timon>meaning its I'm going to use it on my mail/web/dns/ftp/file server and I would shit a brick if a drive failed
01:43<Timon>tis perfectly ok
01:45<_inman_>well, raid1 is kinda pricey. i only really use it at high-level, eg. to mirror two already-fault-tolerant volumes.
01:45<_inman_>consider that it either doubles your cost or halves your density.
01:46<Timon>I could go with raid 5, but thats two more drives I have to buy
01:46<Timon>thats why I was thinking 1
01:46<_inman_>what do you mean "two more drives"?
01:46<Timon>I have one 100gb, if I went with raid 5, I would want to add two more 100's
01:47<_inman_>if you are concerned about the cost and don't plan to upgrade the array, just go with a mirror.
01:48<Timon>basicly, I want the best of all the worlds and the minimalist cost :-)
01:48<Timon>I want to start out with raid 1, then as drives get cheaper and cheaper upgrade to raid 5 so I can upgrade my volume as need b
01:49<_inman_>that may not be possible depending on what raid system you are using.
01:49<Timon>I know :(
01:49-!-inman [] has quit [Read error: 60 (Operation timed out)]
01:49<_inman_>i have not used the new enterprise lvm stuff, so i can't say if that works or not.
01:50-!-_inman_ is now known as inman
01:50<Timon>screw it, I'll just back up 100gb onto floppies every night :-)
01:51<inman>one thing i do a lot of is using mirrors for backups.
01:51<inman>basically, you have the mirror just so you can detach it at midnight and do a backup without disrupting i/o or having any issues with files changing during the backup.
01:52<Timon>I have a tape drive, but its only a tr3. Not big enough to backup all my data. Let alone all my future data needs
01:52<inman>backup is like a dirty secret. it's always behind the online density curve.
01:52<Timon>I'm going to take the 100 out of my machine, and swap it with the 20 in my server.
01:52<inman>there are some cool hierarchial storage technologies out there though.
01:53<inman>you can take your 100gig disk and put a dvd-tower behind it.
01:53<Timon>yeah, that will cost some bucks :-)
01:53<inman>the dvds will hold the data you haven't touched for awhile, and the disk holds the stuff you use regularly.
01:53<inman>so you get the speed of the disk for normal stuff and for archival material, you go to dvd.
01:53<inman>and you can pop out a dvd at any time (or add more)
01:54<Timon>problem is I want all my crap to be online all the time.
01:54<Timon>I'm not into the find a cd/dvd thing
01:54<inman>it's automated with robotics.
01:55<Timon>oh, ok. Let me just pull all the green for that outta my backside
01:55<inman>you can use tape, too, if dvd isn't dense enough.
01:55<inman>robotics are pretty cheap.
01:55<inman>you can do a 110*15gig tape changer for only a few thousand.
01:55<Timon>buddies got a tape library, cost them like 10 or 12k for the gizmo
01:55<inman>there ya go.
01:56<Timon>Were talking about for my home though, I don't have pockets that deep.
01:56<inman>i'd just get one of those ide-raid cards, then.
01:56<Timon>I gotta reboot so I can ghost my drive
01:56<inman>much better than having to worry about raid in software.
01:56<Timon>thats what I was thinking
01:57<Timon>yeah, I did a bit of reading on it and they said that your more likely to run into compatability problems with raid in software when you have to rebuild
01:57-!-Timon [] has quit ["Respect my authoritay"]
01:59-!-hfb [] has quit ["Huh! Wasn't me!"]
02:53<moegreen>ok ... it's really coming along now:
02:58<poptix>inman: the ide raid cards suck
02:58<poptix>inman: mostly because all but the most expensive ones require you to wait at the POST screen for it to rebuild an array
02:59<inman>what kind of raid is that? bwaha.
02:59<inman>i've never used one, but i figured it'd beat software.
02:59<poptix>it's RAID w/o background recovery =P
02:59<poptix>it doesn't really
02:59<poptix>all the real 'raid' stuff for the ide raid controllers is doen in the driver anyway
03:00<poptix>i configured the onboard Promise RAID controller to go into standard IDE mode 2 more channels, for a total of 4)
03:00<poptix>configured software raid
03:00<poptix>and now if/when the box crashes, or a disk fails, i can see it rebuilding via a /proc entry
03:01<poptix>there was literally 0 configuration involved beyond the normal fdisk and whatnot with a RH 9 installation
03:01<inman>last time i used software raid on linux, i had to actually hack the kernel.
03:01<inman>that was '97 i guess, maybe '98.
03:01<poptix>well, it's definitely matured
03:01<inman>haven't used the current stuff. :-)
03:01<poptix>uber yummy

03:34<__inman>Chutt: in two separate recordings, seeking forward would sometimes position me earlier in the stream.
03:35<__inman>continuing playback would let me get past this glitch, so i think it's something in the new seek code.
03:35<__inman>current cvs, etc.

03:45-!-__inman is now known as inman
03:46<inman>saving current position doesn't seem to work and restarting the recording doesn't solve the seek issue; it seems to be failing due to something in the stream.
03:47<inman>i think maybe it's resetting itself to zero. not merely seeking backwards but seeking to the beginning.
03:54-!-_inman_ [] has joined #mythtv
03:57<_inman_>another strange problem; sometimes the audio will vanish and the video will speed up very quickly.
03:58<_inman_>not like my earlier cutouts, during which the video didn't change and the audio was crackly.

04:13<poptix>i wonder what Chutt thinks about a bugzilla type setup
04:17<__inman>he's not a fan of that kind of structure. that's why i keep my own notes...
04:18<__inman>i really wish there was a central buglist, even if there was no todo/roadmap.
04:26<__inman>Chutt: mind if i publish a buglist/todo/roadmap?
04:26<__inman>anyway... have a good one, matt.

11:31<bline>anyone seen this before: audio volume set to '32768'\nstrange error flushing buffer ...
11:31<bline>followed by loooong deleys
11:34<moegreen>bline: those messages are nothing to worry about, is there something else using your sound card (artsd, esd, etc)?
11:35<bline>only thing fuser shows is mythbackend pids
11:36<bline>maybe this is a duplex problem, I was unable to get btaudio working...
11:36<moegreen>bline: I assume this is going into live tv?
11:37<moegreen>bline: are the permissions on the ringbuf.nuv file set correctly?
11:37<bline>it does give those errors right before every single long pause
11:38<moegreen>does live tv eventually start?
11:38<bline>it's paused right now, hdd spinning away and mythbackend sitting at 50% cpu
11:39<bline>if I wait long enough (from 3 to 15 min) it will start back up playing live tv
11:39<moegreen>bline: is this v0.8 or cvs?
11:40<bline>I would dive into the code, but I'm not too familiar with c++
11:46<moegreen> one point I saw those messages, but it certainly was only once and at the start of watching live tv
11:49<Chutt>i need a shallower dvd drive
12:17<poptix>Chutt: i whipped up a patch to make the current CVS init the msp34xx like the old one did
12:17<poptix>not sure if it works for changing tuner inputs though
12:27* poptixdoesn't use anything but the tuner
12:28<poptix>i did find some interesting stuff though
12:28<poptix>see the splotches and bars on the far right side?
12:28<poptix>those do not appear in the non-whining driver
12:29<poptix>if i shift everything down by about 16Khz, it sounds like modem chatter
12:29<poptix>(i obviously can't hear it at 20khz)
12:31<poptix>oh, and you see the block of white, far right side, middle of the image
12:31<poptix>that's a commercial
12:31<poptix>no sound, and that pops up in the high frequency range
12:31<poptix>noticed it did it for every commercial

19:29<_shad> 19:28:58 up 20 min, 4 users, load average: 0.81, 0.58, 0.32
19:29<_shad>almost all cpu though
19:31<Morph>thats not bad..
19:31<_shad>quite a difference a celeron 300@450 and a p3 700@868 :)
19:31<_shad>I didn't expect it to be this good
19:31<_shad>and I'm using 48k mp3 at 9 quality

19:32<yebyen>i'm thinking of changing the resolution
19:32<yebyen>i've got an athlon 700...
19:32<yebyen>and I record at 320x480
19:32<Chutt>the mini-itx box is a good 6dB louder than my xp 1800+
19:32<yebyen>Chutt: damn
19:32<_shad>Chutt: geez :P
19:32<Chutt>entirely due to the fan on the power supply
19:33<_shad>cut it out
19:33<Chutt>that would probably be bad
19:33<_shad>hook it up to +5 instead of +12?
19:33<yebyen>how much is it to replace the power supply? (or, is it possible to replace just the fan)
19:33<Chutt>i'm going to look into putting in a new fan
19:33<yebyen>did you build the machine?
19:34<Chutt>of course :p
19:34-!-Ndiin [] has quit [Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)]
19:34<Chutt>but it's a funky size power supply
19:35<_shad>regular sized fan in it though?
19:35<_shad>you should just be able to put it to +5 and have it run slower
19:36<Chutt>that'd require getting a +5 line in from outside the powersupply
19:36<Chutt>i really don't want to muck around inside =)
19:36<yebyen>probably saner to just get a quieter fan
19:36<_shad>there's +5 on the power supply
19:36<Chutt>this powersupply has _no_ empty space inside
19:37<Chutt>it's completely packed full
19:37<_shad>It'll be a challenge
19:37<inman>the PiP-causes-loss-of-key-input is a reproducable bug.
19:37<_shad>you've already succeeded with myth :P
19:37<Chutt>inman, yes, it is
19:37<yebyen>Chutt: what's going on in current cvs? :)
19:37<Chutt>pvr-250 stuff
19:37<Chutt>moegreen's finishing up the epg
19:38<yebyen>I spotted a commercial_skip.cpp commit, heh
19:38<inman>the smaller the fan is harder it is to keep quiet.
19:40<Chutt>since it has to turn faster to move the same amount of air
19:45<yebyen>i need to find a remote with a better layout for pvr stuff
19:46<Morph>the one with the 250 can be made to work pretty well.

22:32<Timon>cool, thanks inman
22:32<inman>i use rsync, you could use that too, though it may be slower the first time.
22:33<inman>if you plan to do this more than once or want to resume, rsync works well.
22:33<Timon>will rsync copy the parition table and everything?
22:33<inman>no, none of these will (and you don't want 'em to)
22:33<Cloak>you have to repartition first
22:33<Timon>I do want em too :-)
22:33<inman>you need to have both filesystems mounted and just copy the mountpoints, essentially.
22:33<Timon>Argh, such a pain
22:33<Cloak>then you'll lose 60 gb
22:33<Cloak>if the partition table was identical
22:33<Timon>Cloak: thats fine, I'll resize the partition with partition magic
22:34<inman>look, this ain't hard. :-)
22:34<inman>just make a new partition table, make a new fs, etc.
22:34<Timon>inman: you deal with this crap all day long
22:34<Cloak>fdisk /dev/hdb
22:34<Cloak>i'm sure there is a howto even
22:35<inman>make sure when you newfs the new disk, you use -m 1 (or something) since otherwise, you'll be reserving 800meg of space for superuser.
22:35<Cloak>or tunefs it later
22:35<Cloak>tune2fs rather
22:36<Timon>All this would work fine, however I want to preserve my two ntfs partitions that are on hte 100g drive
22:36<inman>yeah, you will.
22:37<Cloak>dd away
22:37<inman>no, don't usedd
22:37<inman>oh, you mean you want to copy them?
22:37<inman>where are the ntfs partitions?
22:37<Timon>on my 100g
22:37<inman>i really don't think this will work.
22:37<inman>i mean /where/
22:38<inman>er, nevermind, it doesn't matter.
22:38<Timon>Oh, they are the first two partitons on the drive.
22:38* inmanthinks.
22:38<Timon>the same drive that my linux partiton is on.
22:38<Cloak>you could try dd
22:38<inman>do you understand that if you simply dd the whole disk, you'll have a new 160gig drive with only 100gig usable?
22:38<Cloak><Cloak> then you'll lose 60 gb
22:38<Cloak><Cloak> if the partition table was identical
22:38<Cloak><Timon> Cloak: thats fine, I'll resize the partition with partition magic
22:38<Timon>If I could tell ghost to NOT copy my linux partition that would be great, but it won't let me select just two partition's
22:39<inman>you could do that and then resize the partition, i guess.
22:39<inman>forget ghost.
22:39<Timon>inman: I know.
22:39<inman>linux can grow partitions, i've just never done it without a raid.

23:14<bline>my biggest problems right now are bad slowdown's/sometimes lockups on the mythfrontend side while watching tv. Havn't post that to the list yet.
23:14<Chutt>might be able to see what it's doing by looking at the framesPlayed var
23:14-!-TheAsp [] has quit [Remote closed the connection]
23:14<bline>i was going to strace it tonight and see where it is hanging
23:15<inman>you aren't counting frames anymore, though, right?
23:15<bline>then search for that select or open in the code
23:15<inman>or are you doing both?
23:15<Chutt>not for positioning
23:15<Chutt>but it still needs to keep track of where it is
23:16<bline>heh, i just noticed someone removed canada-cable
23:17<vektor>finally, thank goodness
23:17<Chutt>yeah, i got unlazy for the 10 seconds it took
23:18<inman>don't worry, they never felt a thing.
23:19<Chutt>moegreen, when you going to check stuff in? =)
23:19<moegreen>heh, I guess I can do it now then add the rest of the options later
23:19<Chutt>whenever you feel it's ready
23:19<Chutt>don't want to rush you or anything =)
23:22<moegreen>well, everything in the screenshots seems to work fine
23:31-!-nziarek_2 [] has joined #mythtv
23:43<inman>heh, thanks for the pip fix Chutt. :-)
23:43<Chutt>i'll have the bookmarks in mpg files fixed in a sec
23:43<Chutt>as well
23:44<inman>going to do some debugging of my seeking issue in a few minutes.
23:44<Chutt>and thanks for that music patch
23:45<Chutt>i'll get it in after i fix bookmarks
23:51<_shad>Chutt: What do you have your res/bitrate at?
23:51<Chutt>480x480, 4400 scaled
23:51<_shad>how much cpu does it use?
23:51<Chutt>max quality 2, min 9, max diff 3
23:52<Chutt>under 50%
23:55<rkulagow_>yeesh. drives are cheap, if you're willing to wait for a rebate. check out techbargains: 200GB drive + 256MB CF + coupon codes and rebates and you get them for $125, shipped free, no tax in most states. add in 10% coupon that dell sends you in a mailer and you're at $100.
23:56<rkulagow_>wonder if i can get a "boot from compact flash" figured out.
23:56<Chutt>i just spent $70 on a 60GB seagate 'cuda V
23:56<Chutt>it's _silent_, though =)
23:56<inman>what speed is it?
23:56<rkulagow_>that's what basements are for. =)
23:56<Chutt>this is for the mini-itx box
23:57<Chutt>inman, 7200
23:58<Chutt>fixing bookmarks was mainly removing code
