02:04<zaheer>mdz_: i dont seem to have a line in on my capture card, just a line out...and that has a cable going tothe soundcard
02:04-!-FreddieD [] has quit [Read error: 60 (Operation timed out)]
02:08<zaheer>i just have tv in, composite in and audio out
02:08<zaheer>ati tv wonder vw
02:08<zaheer>ve i mean
02:09-!-bline [] has joined #mythtv
02:10<mdz_>I think Chutt has one of those
02:11<mdz_>it wouldn't be too surprising, I guess. it's a pretty bare-bones card. it isn't even stereo
02:13<zaheer>also, if one uses btaudio for the tv input
02:13<zaheer>and wants to use a soundcard's line in for composite input
02:14<zaheer>it should be possible
02:14-!-Timon [] has joined #mythtv
02:16<mdz_>this page seems to say that it has an audio input, though
02:17<dub20>is there a known issue with mythtv .10 and nothing appearing for "input connections" when running setup?
02:17<dub20>i see its mentioned on the mailing list, but the only solution i saw was 'use cvs'
02:18<zaheer>have a look there at the ati tv wonder/ve

02:22-!-ahbritto [] has quit ["Client exiting"]
02:27<Chutt>dub20, aiw capture card?
02:29<zaheer>Chutt: would a patch making audiodevice part of cardinput rather than capturecard be acceptable?

02:45-!-Drikus_ [] has joined #mythtv
02:50<bline>I need to figure out how to make dvd menus
02:56<Chutt>zaheer, no
03:00<dub20>Chutt: no
03:00<dub20>a hauppage wintv card
03:01<zaheer>Chutt: how would you solve the problem of composite video requiring a different audio device than television input?
03:10<zaheer>anyways once i have fixed the dvb support, i can dedicate that card to composite only
03:10<zaheer>so wont have that problem...
03:12<Chutt>dub20, if it doesn't show up, then you don't have the driver installed properly, the user running setup doesn't have permission on the device, or you gave it the wrong device name.
03:22-!-FreddieD [] has joined #mythtv
03:33<bline>hey Chutt, the red for the cut list doesn't show up anymore in edit mode unless you turn edit mode then turn on the cutlist and turn edit mode off again
03:35<bline>doesn't really bother me, just thought you might want to know
03:39<Chutt>i'll look into it
03:39<Chutt>probably broke it last night
03:49<bline>I've been studying C++ today, even started a string library
03:49<bline>std::string kinda sucks

05:14<Timon>bline: Why not just use QString?
05:15<bline>llicence issues
05:15<bline>licence even
05:16<bline>err, I'm too tired to spell
05:16<Timon>What don't you like about the Q licence?
05:16<Timon>agreed, its like 1:15am here
05:16<bline>It's not me, the company I work for sells software
05:17<bline>and the code I want to do in C++ is mostly console apps
05:17<bline>server software
05:17<Timon>what kind of server software?
05:17<bline>all kinds, management mostly
05:18<bline>I'm currently working thing we use internally for our hosting service
05:19<bline>and I wanted to try my hand at C++
05:19<bline>for me, having destructors make it worth it,
05:19<Timon>I like C++
05:20<Timon>I believe Java supports constructors and destructors
05:20<bline>yeah, well I do a lot of C
05:20<bline>and perl, but perl it too slow for lots of stuff
05:21<Timon>i've never done anything more than just a slight bit of tinkering with perl.
05:21<Timon>A lot of people like it though
05:21<bline>things I like thus far about C++ are destructor, templates, and polymorphism
05:21<Timon>Agreed. Pointers have been the hardest thing for me to get used to.
05:22<bline>and operator overloading
05:22<Timon>I come from a pointer-less background (php, ColdFusion, ASP, vb)
05:23<bline>Things I dislike thus far are iostream stuff, and the way object data is accessed
05:24<Timon>how so?
05:24<bline>witch one?
05:24<Timon>both :-)
05:25<bline>Well I simply do not see the point of iostream, the same thing can be done with method calls or operator overloading
05:26<bline>And I would perfer more explicit acess to object data rather than it magically being available in the methods

12:46<Peit|Home>CHutt, got a sec for a quick question? If i set the normal tv channels to an input without a tuner, it will still record at the correct time, just won't bother trying to change the channel, relying on the input to be set to the correct time

14:55<sfr>Chutt, you there?
15:19<sfr>ok, looks like the corruption happens between setup and run of ProcesssRequestThread.
15:23<Chutt>so it's fine in setup?
15:24<Chutt>put a cerr after the very last line in setup()
15:26<Chutt>looking at tokens[0]
15:26<Chutt>and listline[0], too
15:26<sfr>did that, and tokens[0] is already corrupted, now added another cerr before waidCond.
15:26<sfr>ok will add listline[0]
15:27<sfr>i don't see why list and tok is used both?
15:32-!-fulbert [] has quit [Read error: 60 (Operation timed out)]
15:35<just1nux>when does the container "browse_info" used in the osd?
15:45<Chutt>hit 'o' i think during live tv
15:46<Chutt>sfr, it's _already_ corrupted at the end of setup()?
15:46<bigguy>ooooh lets port to freelsd
15:46<just1nux>chutt: another question, does the channel number have to be behind the other elements on the screem?
15:46<sfr>i _think_ but i'm checking it again (waiting for it to crash)
15:47<Chutt>sfr, it'd be nice to see if tok[0] was corrupted at the same place
15:47<Chutt>just1nux, i dunno
15:47<Chutt>it's really been quite a while since i touched any of that code
15:48<sfr>why is ProcessRequestThread called with list and tok?
15:48<Chutt>setup(), you mean?
15:48<Chutt>so it doesn't have to regenerate the tokens list again
15:49<Chutt>not that that takes long, it's just silly to do it twice
15:49<sfr>so wouldn't tok be enough?
15:49<Chutt>i'm curious, it all
15:49<Chutt>is all
15:50<Chutt>tokens is the first element of listline split by spaces
16:07<Peit|Home>hmm, I've just recorded a show, and its showing up in the delete recording section, but not it the play recording,. the console says "Error: BBC2 (North West) file not found"

20:47<Chutt>how goes?
20:47<thor>but should be better this week
20:47<Chutt>i've been rather busy myself, so =)
20:47<thor>not too many commits recently ...
20:48<thor>from any quarter
20:48<thor>hopefully, that will change
20:48<thor>at least this weel
20:48<Chutt>well, captain_murdoch's stuff is pretty cool
20:48<thor>yup, absolutely
20:48<Chutt>good feature
20:48<thor>nominated myself for that via-arena thing
20:48<Chutt>just needs to be extended a tiny bit to stop recording if the disk's full
20:48<Chutt>and i'd consider that complete
20:49<Chutt>i really want to get that image cache going soon
20:49<Chutt>and the OSD menu stuff
20:49<thor>Haven't looked at it too closely
20:49<thor>we are on the verge of a command language
20:49<thor>but, also "on the verge" of having mythDVD
20:49<thor>and CD burning from mythmusic
20:49<Chutt>i can take a look at the dvd stuff if you'd like
20:50<thor>lots of things I've gotten half done and then had to go do real work
20:50<Chutt>yeah, real work sucks
20:50<thor>I'm hoping to clear through a lot of it this week
20:50<thor>will send you tarballs as they become useable
20:50<thor>how's your week going to be?
20:50<Chutt>dunno yet
20:51<thor>oh ... apparently dinner is ready
20:51<Chutt>right _now_, i only have one project to finish up
20:51<Chutt>but that'll change
20:51<thor>catch up with you later tonight with any luck
20:54<bline>was freenode down?
20:54<Chutt>dns is/was
20:54<Chutt> or work
20:54<Chutt>nfc why
20:54<bline>it took me like 20 min to connect
20:56<rkulagow_>chutt, are you still here?
20:56<Chutt>sorry, haven't done the docs resync yet
20:56<rkulagow_>hey - can you please sync the website
20:56<rkulagow_>never mind then.
20:56<Chutt>which version of xmltv does it say to install now?
20:57<rkulagow_>i think 5.14 for 0.10
20:57<Chutt>mind double checking before i sync em up?
20:58<rkulagow_>0.5.15 is in the HOWTO. guess that's wrong unless you're CVS
21:00-!-jkolb [] has joined #mythtv
21:00<jkolb>Snow-Man: You around?
21:01<jkolb>Sorry about bouncing all the list mail today. Please don't kick my ass.
21:02<Snow-Man>Been way too busy with other stuff.
21:02<jkolb>Found out that a spammer was using my server as a relay. Went overboard with the restrictions, and bounced pretty much every piece of mail that reached my machine today.
21:02<jkolb>I apparently set up the auth config badly.
21:03<Chutt>snowman, still haven't seen the mail i sent at 7:45 =)
21:03<Snow-Man>yea, yea, I was just looking into that.
21:03<Snow-Man>Has the list been really laggy alot recently or was that just a fluke?
21:03<Snow-Man> /var/spool/mqueue/hourly (10077 requests)
21:03<Snow-Man>Good grief.
21:03<jkolb>I had it set up so that the server would allow relaying from any ip as long as you authenticated first, but the authentication mechanism doesn't seem to be checking against system u/p or something.
21:04<Chutt>most recent email i've gotten took 30 minutes to go from relay -> www
21:04<jkolb>He was authenticating as user 'webmaster'. I don't have a webmaster user.
21:05<Snow-Man>It doesn't appear to be bouncing mail in the hourly queue correctly.
21:06<Chutt>while you're futzing with that stuff
21:06<Chutt>anything weird with ?
21:06<Snow-Man> (host map: lookup ( deferred)

21:07<Snow-Man> <>
21:08<Snow-Man>Looks like a SE problem on the mail stuff...
21:08<Snow-Man>No prob.
21:08<Chutt>though i'm getting some email through
21:08* Snow-Manshrugs.
21:08<Chutt>and there is a big delay in relay -> www =)
21:08<Snow-Man>Hrm, I'll look into that.
21:08<rkulagow_>chutt, new version is synced in CVS.
21:09<Chutt>i'll get that up
21:09<Snow-Man>Oh, of course, it's because of www getting overloaded again.
21:09<Chutt>for the single page and pdf versions, want to just put a link in the first section?
21:09<Snow-Man>blah, blah, blah.
21:09<rkulagow_>i finally got rid of that craptacular linksys i had that kept hanging.
21:10<rkulagow_>chutt: sure, i guess i can do that.
21:10<Chutt>snowman, i get a response to host -t mx
21:10<rkulagow_>chutt: what URL will they be available at?
21:10<Chutt>rkulagow, they'll be in
21:10<Chutt>best place for em, i'd say
21:10<rkulagow_>(great minds, same gutter, etc)
21:11<Snow-Man>There, the delay should be less on the relay -> www stuff.
21:11<rkulagow_>ok, so URL will be
21:11<Chutt>snowman, cool

21:15<Chutt>no coding for me =)
21:15<jkolb>Well, that's your fault for getting married.
21:15<Snow-Man>Dunno what to tell you.
21:16<Chutt>i don't care, really
21:16<Chutt>he just emailed me about not getting mail
21:16<Snow-Man>Well, you can tell him what appears to be the problem.
21:16<Snow-Man>No prob.
21:17<rkulagow_>chutt: should be good now.
21:18<Chutt>i'll get that done soonish
21:18<rkulagow_>great. bbl.
21:30-!-Captain_Murdoch [] has joined #mythtv
21:32<rkulagow_>hrmm. the epia contest closes on monday at midnight. i wouldn't mind another box, but mdz seems to keep breaking his and blaming the hardware. ;)
21:33<Chutt>oh yeah
21:33<Chutt>i should decide if i should enter that or not
21:33<rkulagow_>do it. if you win, you can give it away.
21:34<rkulagow_>besides, if freevo wins and doesn't turn around and send everything to Arpi and the other mplayer folks...
21:34<jkolb>Does anyone know a remedy to the blue screen problem? It started happening to me today. I tried searching the archives, but a first pass didn't reveal the solution to me.
21:35-!-tdb30_ [] has joined #mythtv
21:35<rkulagow_>hrmm. are we just supposed to send an email to the epia people and say, "i nominate X for project Y?"
21:36<Chutt>says to submit code
21:36<rkulagow_>what, like a tarball, or diff's based on vcs userid?
21:36<rkulagow_>oops, cvs.
21:36<tdb30_>hey I have another question today. When I go to the program guide it seems the remote doesn't work on that page. does it use different codes than up, down right and left on that page?
21:37<Chutt>uses the same things as everything else
21:37<tdb30_>question 2. how hard would it be to incorporate a sleep key into mythtv so I can say click on it and it lets me cycle through sleep times and start a screensaver when the sleep time counts down to zero.
21:37<tdb30_>weird. the arrow keyes stop working on that screen and only that screen.
21:38<Chutt>submit a patch
21:38<Chutt>for the sleep timer :p
21:38<tdb30_>you like that idea?
21:38<Chutt>don't care either way
21:39<bbeattie>Are the TV Formats for NTSC-JP. PAL-M, PAL-N, used at all currently?
21:39<tdb30_>whats weird is that the program guide under schedule recordings works fine. but the program guide when watching a program doesn't work for me. It gets in there but the remote stops working until I manualy go to the keyboard and hit esc.
21:39<bbeattie>or just PAL, NTSC, and SECAM?
21:39<Chutt>bbeatie, they're all used
21:40<bbeattie>Chutt: what do they effect?
21:40<Chutt>the driver
21:42<just1nux><timeformat>hh:mm</timeformat> <---what are my options here in the osd.xml?
21:42<Chutt>anything that's understood by Qt
21:42<Chutt>lemme get a link
21:42<just1nux>ok cool
21:43<just1nux>24 hour clock just aint doin it for me
21:44<Chutt>well, hh:mm ap will switch it to 12 hour
21:46<Chutt>anything that understands will work
21:48<just1nux>ok thanks
21:50<just1nux>cool, that page had exactly the option is wanted.
21:55<Chutt>i got the email that i sent at 7:45
21:55<Chutt>snowman, delay was 2 hours relay->www
21:56<Snow-Man>yea, that'll be better now.
21:56<jkolb>Me too. I guess that means I un-fuxx0red exim.
22:00<Chutt>i should put up pics of the closed captioning support
22:00<bbeattie>Can mythtv handle having both PAL and NTSC capture cards in the same system? It doesn't appear that this can be chosen per card.
22:00<mdz_>I have a feeling this RMA is not going to result in a new CPU coming my way
22:01<Chutt>bbeatie, no, it can't handle that
22:01<Chutt>mdz, sucks
22:01<mdz_>I had a feeling
22:01<mdz_>I may need to stop buying AMD
22:01<Chutt>you _did_ fry it yourself, though =)
22:02<mdz_>I don't know how, though
22:02<mdz_>it's not as if I didn't put thermal compound and an approved heatsink+fan on it
22:02<mdz_>the first one ran fine for like 6 months before spontaneously quitting, so I don't take responsibility for that one

23:31<just1nux>mikegrb: thanks :) matching osd is almost done. should be done tonight.
23:35<mikegrb>been eagerly awaiting it
23:36<mikegrb>is the show description multi-line? Only thing I dislike about the current default it it being single line
23:36<moegreen>just1nux: do you have some more screenshots? I've only seen the one off the main mythtv theme page
23:37<mikegrb>moegreen: trust me, you'll like it ;-)
23:37<just1nux>those are all the screenshots i have taken.
23:37<just1nux>none of the osd yet.
23:38<just1nux>i thought descriptions were already multiline
23:38<mikegrb>the theme can have either
23:38<mikegrb>as far as I can tell anyway
23:38<just1nux>anyhow, the area with the description is at the top (more like tivo and replay) so theres room for descriptions and other info
23:39<mikegrb>I like that idea, that's how directtv receivers do it too
23:40<just1nux>so, do i, only thing at the bottom now is volume/ picture controls and the commercial edit stuff.
23:44<bline>hmm, I always have to increase the font size on themes I use
23:46<bline>am I at an odd resolution, 640x480
23:47<just1nux>i dont think so.
23:48<bline>your theme does look nice though I can't read the font very well :)
23:52<just1nux>btw, most of the fonts in my themes are bigger than default...some are smaller.
23:56<bline>just1nux: it's not your theme's fonts, I have the same trouble with all the themes
23:56<bline>that screen doesn't look like the one on your site
23:56<just1nux>hmm 256 colors?
23:57<just1nux>transparency is not working at all
23:57<Chutt>bline, what's your dpi settings?
23:57<just1nux>i thionk theres a setting for that
23:57<bline>Chutt: 24
23:57<bline>color depth
23:58<bline>hmm, I'll look in X logs
23:58<Chutt>xdpyinfo | grep resolution
23:58<Chutt>it assumes 100x100 for fonts
23:58<Chutt>but looking at that, you don't have and AA going on
23:59<Chutt>like, xft and/or the xrender extension aren't working
23:59<bline> resolution: 75x75 dots per inch
