#mythtv IRC Logs for 2003-07-21

00:24<Chutt>just1nux, yeah, it's a driver bug
00:27<just1nux>ioctl works fine though?
00:27<Chutt>tmk's too lazy to fix it
00:28<just1nux>any idea when it occurred so i can go to an earlier ivtv?
00:30-!-bahadunn_ [~bahadunn@] has joined #mythtv
00:30<bahadunn_>how do I setup X to do tvout?
00:31<Chutt>you read the documentation in X about your particular video card
00:33<just1nux>chutt: nevermind, i found and old copy of ivtv on my hd.
00:34<Chutt>i was trying to find the date that change went it
00:34<bahadunn_>yes I read it
00:34<bahadunn_>I still cant get it to work though
00:34<bahadunn_>its an ati radeon 7000
00:34<bahadunn_>everything works great up until I do startx
00:34<Chutt>go ask the gatos people.
00:34<bahadunn_>then I get a white screen
00:34<Chutt>it's their crappy driver.
00:34<bahadunn_>the gatos drivers suck
00:34<bahadunn_>im using the xfree drivers I think
00:34<Chutt>exactly, so go talk to them
00:35<Chutt>then you don't get tv out
00:35<-- bahadunn_(~bahadunn@ has left #mythtv
01:15<bline>I'm going to see if I can't fix the transcode stuff for the crap pvr-250 outputs
01:25<Chutt>fix the audio instead =)
01:26<bline>in ivtv?
01:26<bline>it doesn't bother me
01:27<Chutt>doesn't bother me either, but it's silly that it's not getting fixed
01:27<bline>yeah, dunno what happened to tmk
01:28<Chutt>audio with whine is better than no audio at all
01:28<Chutt>as much as i like my clean sounding audio =)
01:28<bline>I never got the whine, and changing channels fixes the lack of audio
01:28<Chutt>can't quite change channels on a composite input
01:29<Captain_Murdoch>see the moron on the -dev list asking me to make it so that a backend can write to another backend's disk when the first backend's disk fills up?
01:30<Chutt>you're not going to do that, right?
01:30<Captain_Murdoch>that's what nfs is for.
01:30<Captain_Murdoch>nfs & lvm
01:31<Captain_Murdoch>I should reply and tell him he needs to go download the MythNFS plugin.
01:31<Captain_Murdoch>and he even put "Thanks." at the end after his request.
01:31<paulproteus>There's a plugin for NFS? I just mount NFS directories....
01:32* paulproteusis going to use AFS in the future
01:32<bline>Captain_Murdoch: do it ;)
01:32<Chutt>ah, the bitterness
01:32<Chutt>captain_murdoch, you are now accepted into the brotherhood of crusty old open source programmers
01:32<paulproteus>Captain_Murdoch: Tell him to use AFS.
01:33<paulproteus>It's slightly hard to set up, but rocks tremendously.
01:33<paulproteus>Can one combine NFS partitions with LVM?
01:33<paulproteus>That's so ad-hoc, so duct-tape-and-staples.... It's *so* OSS.
01:33<Chutt>Hi! Code this for me! Thanks!
01:34<Captain_Murdoch>Chutt, you don't know how many times I get asked if I'm going to add or when I'm going to add voice chat support to my GTK+ yahoo chat app. it's hillarious.
01:34<paulproteus>Captain_Murdoch, when are you going to add voice chat to your GTK+ yahoo chat app? I heard someone say you were going to have it by next Wednesday.
01:34<Captain_Murdoch>anyway, got my good laugh before heading to bed. maybe I'll reply in the morning if I wake up in a bad mood. :)
01:34* paulproteusducks
01:35<Captain_Murdoch>paulproteus: maybe it's in there already and you don't know the super secret key combination.
01:36<Captain_Murdoch>I tell them if they want it they can code it. :) been saying that since yahoo added voice.
01:36<Captain_Murdoch>anyway, 'night all.
01:36<paulproteus>You know, I'm using Myth on Xbox, and I have to say, it feels like that's exactly where the Linux group is: Decoding MS' stuff.
01:36<paulproteus>Ciao, Mon Capitain.
01:39<tdb30_>quick question... does live playback and watching recordings use the same playback code. Basicly is the code that calls the pause and fastforward etc features the same code?
01:44<Timon>thor: you up?

12:33<blow_core>What would make myth's setup segfault on a brand new install?
12:33<blow_core>Here's what I have done
12:33<blow_core>Or lack thereof?
12:33<thor>it's almost always an audio problem

12:34<blow_core>I don't have my sound card working yet.
12:34<thor>tha's it
12:34<Chutt>is probably it

12:36<thor>if it's *just* setup, then it's probably not audio
12:36<Chutt>where's it segfaulting..
12:38<Chutt>ok, waste my time, why don't you
12:38<blow_core>Ok, I run setup. It asks me if I want to clear out a couple of things (on the console that is). I can't recall what it says at the moment, and I am in the middle of a debug build, so I can't say.
12:38<blow_core>Anyway ...

13:47<Peit|Home>I can't get a backtrace...
13:47<Peit|Home>honestly, i tried
13:47<Chutt>well, since it's in the driver..
13:47<Chutt>not much i can do about it
13:47<Peit|Home>deffo driver then?
13:47<Chutt>i'd say so
13:47<Peit|Home>that's really weird, it was working last week, and i swear i've not changed anything
13:48<Peit|Home>time for more driver debugging..
13:48<Peit|Home>talk about a whole new playground to explore
13:49<just1nux>chutt: even after loading the old ivtv drivers, i still had no audio after switching inputs. I just tried specifically telling the msp driver which audio standard to use when it load. Now the problem is gone. Just incase anyone else runs into that.
13:50<Chutt>just1nux, that's what people are saying they're doing on the ivtv list
13:50<Chutt>it's silly to have to do that, as it's obviously a driver bug
13:50<just1nux>ok. yeah definitely not defaulting correctly

15:01<blow_core>No, I built packages from the debian/rules scripts.
15:01<blow_core>Well, after I took out the strip directive, of course.
15:01<thor>this is Chutt's code, ...
15:01<thor>but my first guess
15:02<thor>is that it can't find pixmaps

15:02<thor>... still looking ...
15:02<blow_core>For the menu stuff you mean?
15:02<thor>locate background.png
15:02<thor>can you do that ?
15:03<blow_core>Let me update slocate. I've only had this box installed about 48 hours now.
15:04<thor>otherwise it's mystery to me ...
15:05<thor>post to the mailing list, but include distro (version), a brief outline of the steps you took so far, and maybe a few lines on your hardware
15:05<blow_core>I get 10 hits, but I suspect the one you're looking for is this one: /usr/share/mythtv/themes/blue/background.png
15:05<thor>ah, it is there
15:05<thor>what distribution?
15:05<blow_core>I get that image on screen for about a half second before it segfaults and drops me back to my xterm
15:05<blow_core>Debian Unstable
15:06<thor>where's Qt come from (aptget or did you build it yourself) ?
15:07<blow_core>It's from apt-get. (relevant line from dpkg -l) ii libqt3c102 3.1.1-9 Qt Library
15:07<blow_core>And I have the -mt of that also
15:08<blow_core>I tried to build it with just plain old libqt3-mt (3.0.3-20020329), but try as I might, it wouldn't use it.
15:09<thor>anything wonky with your X setup (does it do Alpha blending ok)?
15:09<thor>... I'm really grasping at straws ...
15:10<blow_core>Uhhh ... Not sure what you mean there (I don't pretend to understand the beast that is X). I am using nVidia's driver though, if that makes a difference.
15:11<thor>nVidia binary drivers (from nVidia)
15:11<blow_core>Yeah. So the TV out works.
15:11<thor>you got RenderACCel on in your XF86Config ?

15:13<thor>... I'd go the mailing list route ... odd that you're having problems with *setup* ....
15:13<thor>but I can't figure out what's wrong
15:15<blow_core>Well, I do appreciate you looking at it for me. I spent the better part of the weekend trying to make it work, all to no avail. It's a pretty plain jane setup. I installed the debian base. Added the mythtv lines to my sources file. Did an apt-get update; apt-get install mythtv; and this is where I've been since :(
15:16<blow_core>I really want to make it work though. It looks *really* slick. My compliments (and thanks) to the developers :)
15:16<thor>can't find that function in util.cpp anymore ... hang on a sec
15:21<blow_core>On a side note -- Does anyone know if mythtv will build/run on a FreeBSD machine?
15:22<thor>sorry ... this is a mystery to me ... I'd suspect Qt (3.1.1 didn't last long) .... but I don't really know.
15:22<thor>someone on the mailing list can probably figure it out
15:22<thor>and/or people with better knowledge than I may catch this on a scrollback
15:23<blow_core>Cool. Thanks again for the help. I'll leave my client connected, but the boss is more or less forcing me to go take lunch now. I'll post to -dev and check back here in a little while.
15:35<just1nux>sorry for asking here, but ivtv-dev is like talking to...uhm well no one. can test_ioctl change the channel with a channel number? -r tuner=03 or freq=03 doesnt seem to do it.
15:42<vektor>one wouldn't think so, since the driver has no idea about number->frequency mappings
15:42<vektor>that's a userspace thing
15:42<vektor>well, it's a user thing even more so :)
15:42<just1nux>ok thanks.
15:42<vektor>so an app called 'test_ioctl' just sounds wrong for the task.
15:43<just1nux>well, sound keeps going away with myth changing the inputs, thought if i could use that to tune externally i could avoid the problem.
15:44<vektor>you mean changing the channel, or changing the 'input'?
15:45<just1nux>i know how to get test_ioctl to change inputs, but once you put a script to run on change of channel myth assumes that the script is changing it.
15:45<Chutt>just1nux, that won't fix things
15:46<just1nux>well, actually it did, just gets stuck on the same channel
15:47<just1nux>im making it switch inputs back and forth. then the sound returns
15:47<just1nux>one more line to change the channel and id have a workaround.
16:08-!-choenig [] has quit [Remote closed the connection]
16:10<just1nux>chutt: i figured it out. my workaround works. channel#*16 equals frequency. Found a post on the myth list from someone in the netherlands that helped.

16:54<Chutt>i can probably swing animations and stuff for parts of the menu that aren't getting blended
16:55<thor>surely not flash ?
16:55<Chutt>but anything more would be hard
16:55<Chutt>well, just looking at qt's support for .mngs
16:55<thor>UIType's with internal timers?
16:55<Chutt>but the alpha blending for stuff would kill performance
16:56<thor>hmmm ....
16:57<thor>no backgrounds with Alpha, buttons on backgrounds ? (write the theme on purpose to not do Alpha loading)
16:57<Chutt>no, blending stuff like the buttons onto a moving background
16:57-!-davealden [] has quit [Remote closed the connection]
16:57<Chutt>or i guess the buttons themselves, if they were being blended
16:57<thor>oh ... yeah ... user option?
16:57-!-davealden [] has joined #mythtv
16:57<Chutt>i can't imagine it being fast anywhere
16:58<thor>but why moving backgrounds ... I would think people would want little animated buttons and what not
16:59<thor>maybe some transition effects
16:59<thor>I dunno
16:59<just1nux>doesnt sound like .mngs would really be worth the effort
17:00<just1nux>can it handle a video mpg background like the osd?
17:00<Chutt>could be made to, i suppose
17:01<just1nux>thats all a dvd menu is...
17:01<just1nux>that and mpg transitions between each screen

17:03<thor>(or a Replay ... or an MS XP<->HTPC)?
17:03<just1nux>well i can tell you that replay isnt animated at all. i think tivo might just be the background
17:03<just1nux>Microsofts is majorly 3d animated
17:04<just1nux>type and graphics zomming inj and out and moving all around
17:04<thor>like the interface is in a GL space ?
17:04<just1nux>gotta be all vector based
17:05-!-pablow [] has joined #mythtv
17:05<just1nux>sound would also be nice, for immediate feedback , and ambiance etc
17:05<Chutt>sound would be relatively easy
17:06<just1nux>tivo uses sounds replay does not
17:06<just1nux>microsoft does as well
17:06<thor>a little "tink" on a button press would be sweet ...
17:07<Chutt>only thing there is worrying about multiple sounds playing back at once
17:07<Chutt>but i could write up a little thing to do all that
17:08<thor>when I was themeing mmusic, I "discovered" that my sound card could mix multiple opens =)
17:08<Chutt>most can't, though
17:08<vektor>When that jkolb guy comes back, I need to talk to him. I found out the problem. :/
17:08<vektor>It's not pretty.
17:09<Chutt>what's the issue?
17:09<vektor>The i810 spins if you draw faster than the refresh rate.
17:09<Chutt>he did say that mythtv was back down to 3% cpu displaying video
17:09<thor>"spins" ?
17:09<Chutt>busy waits
17:09<vektor>It cannot program the next frame until the last one you sent completes.
17:09<vektor>So it busy waits.
17:10<Chutt>while (1) ;
17:10<vektor>mythtv won't draw faster.
17:10<Chutt>right, it doesn't attempt to
17:10<vektor>But tvtime draws right at 59.94hz, which is exactly what he's set to.
17:10<vektor>So something is fucked up ther.e
17:10<Chutt>so does mythtv :p
17:10<vektor>erm.. it does?
17:10<Chutt>'least it tries to
17:10<Chutt>most of the time, yeah
17:11<Chutt>it's a setting
17:11<vektor>chutt, very interesting post my mark vojkovich
17:11<vektor>i was asking for triple buffering in the NVIDIA driver
17:11<vektor>looking to see if it's in the archives yet
17:12<vektor>it's not :) let me post it
17:14<Chutt>that's only pertinant to the nv driver, though, right?
17:15<vektor>and NVIDIA i'd think
17:16<Chutt>i certainly don't get any tearing with the nvidia driver
17:16<Chutt>even if i send it stuff too fast =)

17:31<vektor>Chutt: are you sure you're not seeing tearing?
17:31<vektor>you should see tearing if you draw faster than the refresh

17:31<Chutt>there is 0 tearing.
17:31-!-Drikus_ [] has quit ["toedeledoki"]
17:32<Chutt>if i use the 'video blitter' port, i get tearing
17:32<Chutt>if i use the 'video overlay' port, like you're supposed to, no tearing
17:32<vektor>oh, read the message again
17:32<vektor>it draws into the queued buffer
17:32<vektor>so it will only tear if you flip to the new buffer while it's being writte
17:33<vektor>so it can tear, but you have to be really fast. :)
17:33<vektor>since you're getting such good performance, you won't see tearing even though you're blitting much faster.

17:34<Chutt>and i do get tearing if i use the blitter
17:34<vektor>of course since that's single buffered
17:34<vektor>so ignore that.
17:34<vektor>the blitter just does that, blits directly to the framebuffer.
17:34<vektor>the overlay double buffers, but can still tear.
17:34<vektor>if you draw way too fast
17:34<Chutt>i've done that :p
17:34<Chutt>no tearing
17:34<vektor>you have insane performance.
17:35<Chutt>i've got a one year old computer
17:35<vektor>because you'd need to be _inside_ a call to XvShmPutImage when it flips.
17:35<Chutt>i don't see how that can be 'insane' :p
17:35<vektor>well should i post and say 'wtf mark, we see no tearing'?
17:35<Chutt>he's talking about the nv driver
17:36<vektor>i disbelieve but i'll ask.
17:36<Chutt>how do you know the nvidia driver doesn't wait for the buffer to clear?
17:36<Chutt>or queue it up?
17:36<vektor>i'll ask now, but i thought it was implied.
17:36<Chutt>i've just never seen any tearing at all with the overlay
17:37<Chutt>you'd think i would, just on occasion
17:37<Chutt>if it were any other way
17:37<Chutt>vagaries of timing, etc
17:37<Chutt>i've never used the nv driver, though
17:37<vektor>i posted.
17:38<just1nux>I agree with Chutt, never seen tearing on overlay with the nvidia driver.
17:38<vektor>yeah and how many 80fps videos do you have
17:38<vektor>or 100fps
17:39<vektor>remember this only happens when you draw way faster than the refresh rate.
17:39<Chutt>see, i've done that though
17:39<Chutt>by accident, mostly =)
17:39<vektor>i know that's why i posted
17:40<jkolb>The anticipation is killing me here, vektor...
17:40<vektor>jkolb: oh, sorry.
17:40<Chutt>jkolb, oh, it just busywaits if sent data faster than the refresh rate
17:40<vektor>jkolb: the i810 driver spins until the next refresh if you draw faster than the refresh rate.
17:40<vektor>so since you're at 60hz, you're capped at 60fps
17:40<jkolb>I figured it'd be something like that.
17:40<Chutt>which should be rather nice for smoothness of playback
17:41<vektor>well i'm concerned about tvtime.
17:41<vektor>like, i'm concerned it can get into loops where it's always busy waiting.
17:42<jkolb>Of course, that doesn't really explain why it dropped below 60fps when myth started using a bit of the CPU.
17:42<vektor>well i'm just worried that if mythtv ever decides to draw like 5 frames consecutively by accident, it will use a ton of cpu
17:42<jkolb>If most of its time is spent spinlocking, I should just see 60fps until there's a significant amount of load on the system, shouldn't I?
17:42<vektor>and then you might get into some weird loop
17:43<Peit|Home>"IOBOUND - blocking in ThreadedFileWriter::Write()" <-- I presume i need to tweak the storage if i'm getting that message
17:51<blow_core>Chutt: I posted that backtrace you mentioned earlier to the -dev mailing list, if you're curious.
17:52<Chutt>peit|home, generally means it can't write fast enough to the disk, yeah

17:56<Chutt>no worries
17:57<Peit|Home>Chutt: is it possible to change the write size, (blocks/K) that mythtv tries to write in one go?
17:57<Chutt>not easily
17:57<Chutt>but, yeah, sure
17:58<Chutt>top couple hundred lines are the writer thread
17:58<Peit|Home>so it's not tweakable via gui.. o.k

18:00<Chutt>it does

18:01<Peit|Home>yet again, something that was working before i went away for the weekend

18:57<poptix>that 40meg/s is local, not lan
18:58<poptix>across the lan, the max is ~10-11MB/s
18:58<blow_core>Have you tried moving a big file with something like FTP to see if it's as slow as NFS is?
18:59<blow_core>Well, 10-12MB is about as fast as 100mbit will go. If you're getting that, that's all you can ask for.
19:04-!-schultmc [] has quit ["Client exiting"]
19:07<blow_core>You could also try tinkering with the rsize/wsize buffers when you mount the volume. 8192 seems to be a popular value (and may be the default). NFS is not very good at lots of small writes, and the default is 1024.
19:08<blow_core>Woops. I guess I should have edited that before I hit enter. 1024 is the default size. The man page says 8192 " ... will make your nfs connection much faster than with the default buffer size of 1024."

20:00<tdb30_>what does it mean when I get a message unable to write to client socket as its no longer there?
20:00<Chutt>means the client socket left before the backend could respond
20:00<bbeattie>there's also channel issues that I'm working with the car designer on. HDTV's scan all channels and if they get an HDTV channel 42, they read the signal and get "Channel 7" and then the user can select "Channel 7" but it really maps to channel 42, his driver doesn't do this and it leaves a big gap in channel code

23:36<bbeattie>Chutt: should all channel setting be done in the channel.cpp? I;'ve been setting the freq ioctl as a hardcoded channel in my hdtvrecorder.cpp, but now I'm ready to use channels set/given inside of myth,
23:37<bbeattie>.. but if I don't set them myself, mythfrontend exits -1 on the avformat err,
23:37<Chutt>does the card do the channels like v4l?
23:37<bbeattie>could be freqency mismatches between hdtv and ntsc, but hdtv uses uhf frequencies.
23:37<Chutt>you may want to make a hdtvchannel.cpp
23:37<Chutt>i dunno
23:40<bbeattie>What I have to do to get things to work, is call a ioctl(chanfd,VIDIOCSFREQ,&freq), where freq = ((639250/10)*16)/100; , which 639250 is the frequency for channel 42
23:42<bbeattie>in your mpegrecorder code, you create a v4l2 format struct of vmft, memset it to 0, an (ioctl(chanfd, VIDIOC_G_FMT, &vfmt) < 0) , then another ioctl with VIDIOC_S_FMT, and you're done.
23:42<Chutt>the initial channel should be set in channel.cpp
23:44-!-blow_core [] has joined #mythtv
23:44<bbeattie>so you read it off the card, and reset it? (I don't understand how that helps/what it does)
23:45<Chutt>all i'm doing in that bit of code is setting the width/height of the capture
23:46<blow_core>Thanks to thor and Chutt, I now have a working setup. I have a new problem though, for when (if) you feel like hearing about it.
23:46<bbeattie>Chutt: right.. that's what I thought it may have been doing, so basically this comes down to channel freqency mismatches probably.. Thanks That helps.
23:48<bbeattie>SO to make sure, removing that code shouldn't effect anything, if I don't need to set width/height?
23:50<blow_core>Nevermind. Back to google. It's not just Myth that has the issue. If someone knows where to start looking for what would make a sound card loop on the initial sample it gets though, I'm all ears.
23:51<Chutt>no idea
23:52<blow_core>I know what would fix it -- a real sound card. Unfortunately though, that's not going to happen as all my card slots are full.
