00:01<mikegrb>that is in the howto but it is easy you just need to do a "export QTDIR=<dir>"
00:01<mrallen>crap, missed that
00:01<mikegrb>likely possibility is /usr/share/qt3 or some such
00:01<mrallen>working now
00:02<mikegrb>you might try locate qt3
00:02<mikegrb>okay :-)
00:02<mrallen>/usr/lib/qt-3.1 default in r9. thanks!

00:31<mrallen>ok, probably another howto question, but setup is failing
00:31<mrallen>QSqlDatabase warning: QMYSQL3 driver not loaded
00:31<mrallen>QSqlDatabase: available drivers:
00:31<mrallen>QSqlDatabase warning: QMYSQL3 driver not loaded
00:31<mrallen>QSqlDatabase: available drivers:
00:31<mrallen>Unable to connect to database!
00:31<mrallen>and so on and so forth
00:31<mrallen>mysql is running
00:33<Captain_Murdoch>that's covered in the howto I think.
00:34<mikegrb>Captain_Murdoch: is there already a method for the frontend to determine if the backend is recording?
00:34<mrallen>is 'Installing and using MythTV' the same as howto?
00:34<mikegrb>I know going to live tv it checks for a free tuner but I'm interested in if anything is recording
00:35-!-hfb [] has quit [Connection timed out]
00:35<mikegrb>mrallen: basically part of the mysql stuff is missing, you need mysql support in mythtv
00:35<mikegrb>er in qt
00:35<mikegrb>sorry, it's late
00:35<Captain_Murdoch>mikegrb. I don't think so. I'd like to have a way so ask the master backend and have it reply "tuner 0 on host X is recording Monster Garage, tuner 1 on host X is free, tuner 0 on host Y is recording 'Nascar'"
00:36<mrallen>ah. yes, missing qt-mysql package
00:36<mikegrb>Captain_Murdoch: I'm aiming to change the led on the xbox
00:37<mikegrb>Captain_Murdoch: so I guess I get to add a new query for the backend to recognize
00:38<Captain_Murdoch>would be nice. :) I think current code on the playbackbox screen just assumes something is recording if the current time is before the endtime.
00:38<mikegrb>I believe you are right
00:38<mrallen>any way to use mouse to config mythtv or do i absolutely need lirc + remote at this point?
00:38<mikegrb>there was a problem with it not taking into account the pre-roll when it was first added
00:40<mikegrb>I guess I'll look at the code that was added for exectv as a starting point
00:40-!-hfb_ [] has quit [No route to host]
00:41<mikegrb>I emailed the guy, dan I think, who did the lcd stuff because he was planning on adding this support for lcd's to see if he has any code written
00:41<Captain_Murdoch>fairly easy overall. look over the patch maybe to see what was needed for everything.
00:42<mikegrb>then I'll look at your auto-delete stuff to see how to make a timer work w/ c++ 'n qt ... look at the lcd stuff for a configure option --enable-xbox :-)
00:42<mikegrb>then it can add setup options for led colors to use and how often to check and what not
00:43<mikegrb>heh maybe that polling the backend every so often will keep the frontend from getting swapped out on my xbox, then I wont have to wait 10 sec after a key press everytime I come back after a while
00:46<CaCtus491>does the frontend on the xbox work well?
00:46<mikegrb>yes, so far anyway
00:47<mikegrb>working on getting the controllers working in mame
00:47-!-tmk [] has joined #mythtv
00:47<tmk>chutt, you around?
00:47<CaCtus491>cool, I was thinking about getting one to use as a front end :)
00:48<CaCtus491>how long does it take to boot, and does it have an limitations compared to a pc? (as far as myth is concerned?)
00:48<mikegrb>well all the way into myth 45ish seconds, we leave it on all the time
00:49<mikegrb>I like it better in terms of the remote, the kernel driver for the dvd remote works as a usb HID device so as far as the computer is concerned, the remote is a usb keyboard
00:49<mikegrb>no lirc or what not to worry abt
00:51<CaCtus491>all the overlay and stuff works ok? visualisations in mythmusic?
00:53<mikegrb>I haven't installed mythmusic but yes
00:54<mikegrb>there is a guy on the lists that has made a mini linux dist for myth on the xbox
00:55<CaCtus491>one last thing then before I go out and get one :)... if I have a dvb card in the backend, can the xbox handle the mpeg stream ok (for live tv)? then if I transcode recordings to mpeg4, it could play them ok?
00:56<mikegrb>I don't have dvb so don't know but I use mpeg4
00:57<mikegrb>it is fine with that and mythvideo runs fine playing divx's over nfs
00:59-!-mechou [] has joined #mythtv
01:03<CaCtus491>sounds good
01:04<mikegrb>is it tar.gz or tar.bz2 or .tgz?
01:04<mikegrb>er sorry wrong window
01:07<hadees>i am starting to work on for powermate support for mythtv
01:08<mikegrb>night all
01:08<hadees>it looks like a volume knob and i need some help on what to do with a part of it
01:08<hadees>see there is a led behind the knob that can blink and change brightness
01:09<hadees>but i am not sure what to have it attached to in mythtv
01:09<hadees>any ideas would be great
01:10<CaCtus491>...I just started playing with myth a few days ago, it's such a great program! My main problem is that the tv reception is fairly average, with the tuner card (winfast 2000xp) plugged in, even \x91normal\x92 tv reception is poor. Unplug the capture card and it becomes perfect again. Any suggestions?
01:10<CaCtus491>hadees: whats a 'powermate'? :)
01:10<hadees>it is an input device that looks like a volume knob
01:13<CaCtus491>hadees: use it to indicate if myth is recording :)
01:13<hadees>CaCtus491 are you using a splitter?
01:13<CaCtus491>hadees: yeah
01:13<hadees>when you unplug the capture card do you also remove the splitter
01:14<CaCtus491>nope, just unplug the coax from the back of the capture card
01:16<hadees>post your problem on
01:17<hadees>in the normal htpc forum
01:17<hadees>not the linux one, you won't get a response for a while
01:17<CaCtus491>I was thinking of moving the card to the slot furthest away from the cpu?
01:17<hadees>and the problem should in windows as well as linux
01:17<hadees>if it happens to normal tv viewing
01:18<hadees>through the tv with the computer just plugged in
01:26<knight->anyone use a pvr250?
01:26<hadees>lots of people
01:26<knight->obviously, but anyone who is awake here with the pvr250
01:26<knight->I just picked one up today to replace my bttv based one
01:27<hadees>i got one in the mail
01:27<knight->and I'm getting read errors
01:27<hadees>sorry don't have it quite yet
01:28<knight->you know what tuner it has in it?
01:28-!-monkeyBox [] has joined #mythtv
01:28<monkeyBox>Hi all.. I'd like to manually transcode a recording, I hit "x" while watching the recording, but how do I know if it's actually transcoding??
01:30<tmk>knight: what you need
01:31<knight->tmk, trying to get this pvr250 working, but it's not at all... driver is loaded, but i'm getting read errors in xawtv and myth
01:32<tmk>xawtv won't work
01:32<tmk>it's for uncompressed streams
01:32<knight->ahh ok
01:32<tmk>pvr250 spits out mpg2 :)
01:32<knight->well anyways, still doesnt work in miyyth
01:32<knight->yah i know :)
01:32<tmk>try cat /dev/video0 > file.mpg
01:32<tmk>what do you get
01:33<knight->Changing from None to RecordingOnly
01:33<knight->error reading from: /dev/video0
01:33<knight->read: Input/output error
01:33<tmk>rmmod ivtv
01:33<tmk>insmod ivtv.o
01:33<tmk>that should fix it
01:33<knight->viper setup # cat /dev/video0 > test.mpeg
01:33<knight->cat: /dev/video0: Input/output error
01:34<knight->same prob
01:34<knight->and from dmesg:

01:34<knight->ivtv: EOS interrupt not received! stopping anyway.
01:34<knight->after trying the cat
01:35<snorp>knight-: the module loading order is very important
01:35<snorp>knight-: did you do that correctly?
01:35<knight->snorp, i followed it, yes
01:35<knight->although I will try again
01:36<snorp>tmk: why is it that unloading/loading sometimes fixes stuff?
01:36<snorp>it kind of bothers me :)

01:45<knight->no, NTSC
01:46<tmk>it's part of ivtv
01:46<knight->tmk, ok, trying
01:47<knight->tmk, whats the proper modules.conf line for the i2c-algo-bit lines?
01:47<tmk>options i2c-algo-bit debug=1 bit_scan=1
01:47<knight->right but whats the alias

02:12<tmk>knight: lemme check my i2c's
02:19<tmk>hmm those are the same id's as what i've got
02:19<tmk>what kernel rev?
02:19<knight->FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE #0: Fri Jul 18 01:37:40 CDT 2003 i386
02:19<knight->wrong machine :)
02:20<knight->Linux 2.4.20-gentoo-r2 #11 SMP Sat Jun 7 21:12:34 PDT 2003 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
02:20<tmk>is it really SMP?
02:20<knight->SMP is disabled at boot, it's a single processor mobo anyways
02:21<tmk>dunno then
02:22<tmk>i never figured out what causes those i2c errors
02:22<tmk>might be some 'advanced' kernel version
02:22<knight->is that what your modules.conf looks like?
02:23<knight->i have a pctv card (bttv) in as well, but i'm not loading bttv at all
02:24<tmk>you sure?
02:25<tmk>check.. sometimes it's automatic
02:25<knight->i'm sure :)
02:25<tmk>you spelled videodev wrong too
02:25<knight->ok let me fix
02:26-!-snorp is now known as snorp|out

02:32<knight-> 971 root 20 0 5732 5732 4444 S 27.7 1.1 0:26 artsd
02:32<knight-> 1287 root 9 0 13924 13M 6816 S 4.9 2.7 0:02 mythbackend
02:32<knight->why is artsd eatig up so much cpu during record
02:33<Chutt>because you're not supposed to be running it.
02:34<knight->why not?
02:34<Chutt>well, first off, arts sucks.
02:35<Chutt>second, mythtv doesn't know about it/use it
02:35<knight->it's killed
02:35<knight->still serious lag during pvr250 crecord and no sound
02:36<knight->somehow mythbackend it eating 38% cpu, but the whole machine is lagging
02:36<knight-> 1287 root 9 0 14060 13M 6904 S 38.3 2.7 0:32 mythbackend
02:36<Chutt>mythbackend shouldn't be using any cpu.
02:36<Chutt>if you had things setup properly.
02:36<knight->Thanks for that tidbit of clarification.
02:37<knight->The blame is on me, I'll accept that.
02:37<knight->How can Itroubleshoot this further now
02:37<Chutt>start by reading the pvr-250 section in the howto
02:38<knight->I did.
02:38<knight->I followed it to the T.
02:39<Chutt>sorry, but i doubt that
02:39<knight->I understand you assume I'm very new to mythtv.
02:39<knight->I've read the pvr-250 section several times.
02:40<knight->ivtv is latest cvs, modules.conf almost mimics example in howot, etc.
02:40<knight->Can we please get past your assumptions that I'm a cluebie who hasn't even read he docs?
02:41-!-_kch_ [] has joined #mythtv
02:41<Chutt>if you're not a cluebie, then crack open gdb and see what it's doing
02:41<knight->Certainly massuh.
02:42<Chutt>are you trying to be annoying?
02:42<knight->Are you trying to be a dick?
02:42<Chutt>i do have better things to do than free tech support.
02:42<knight->Then don't help. Your pretenciousness isn't really helpful.
02:43<Chutt>it's my channel.
02:43<knight->We already know you're a stud.
02:43<Chutt>any questions asked in here are directed to me.
02:43<knight->You don't have to be cocky about everything.
02:45<Chutt>sure i do
02:45<Chutt>i'm trying to cut down on the amount of free tech support that happens here
02:45<knight->Why would you do that?
02:46<Chutt>this is _supposed_ to be for development.
02:46<knight->You tried to shut me up months ago when I made a ton of mythweb additions and requested solid database changes with no increase in query duration.
02:47<knight->So I doubt this is much about development.
02:47<Chutt>tried to?
02:47<Chutt>i said 'submit a patch with your proposed database changes'
02:47<Chutt>and you never did.
02:47<Chutt>you also never submitted the mythweb changes
02:47<knight->Indeed I didn't.
02:47<Chutt>i'm not going to write code for you just because you asked me to
02:47<knight->I never wanted you to write me code.
02:47<knight->I wrote plenty of my own.
02:48<Chutt>'requested solid database changes'
02:48<knight->Right, but my proposals here in chat were swiftly denied by you
02:48<knight->Since youwere satisfied with the existing playlist column
02:49<knight->That's my point. EOL.
02:49<Chutt>then i said, if you wanted something better, submit a patch so i could look it over.
02:49<Chutt>but funnily enough, that never happened.
02:49<knight->Anyhow, you're rihgt, I'm wrong, and I'm happy to stfu now.
02:50-!-snorp|out is now known as snorp
02:50<Chutt>have you emailed the list about the problem with the pvr-250?
02:51<Chutt>someone out there's probably gotten something similar before..
02:51<knight->I'll probably proceed with that.
02:52<Chutt>there's nothing in the direct code path that i can think of that would use any cpu
02:52<Chutt>which is why i'm fairly sure it's a config issue
02:54<Chutt>or it could be all tmk's fault
03:00<FryGuy>personally I just want both my tuners to start working again
03:00<FryGuy>can I blame that on tmk too? :)
03:01<FryGuy>although I think if one of the tuners is borked, it causes the backend to crash just after starting to record
03:02-!-snorp is now known as snorp|out
03:02<FryGuy>it gives the warnings on startup, but still thinks it should record
03:03<Chutt>what warnings?
03:03<FryGuy>something like unable to read from /dev/video1
03:04<Chutt>yeah, i doubt it deals with that at all
03:04<knight->Chutt, anyone submit any code for having chained storage dirs?
03:04<Chutt>nope, no one has
03:04<knight->Ok, perhaps I'll look into thta.
03:04<Chutt>lotta people just use lvm for that
03:05<FryGuy>at one point I had them both working, but when I rebooted only one showed up
03:05<knight->Yeah, but then those drives are basically permanently connected right?
03:05<FryGuy>knight: multiple backends :)
03:05<Chutt>don't think so
03:05<knight->Having drive spillage would be safer and independant of raid, etc
03:09-!-CaCtus491 [] has quit []
03:13<knight->what's an oss mixer command?
03:13<Chutt>or are you meaning something else..

03:17-!-lythe [] has joined #mythtv
03:17<knight->no that's fine
03:18<lythe>how can i test to ensure that my audio is working correctly when im using oss instead of alsa
03:18<lythe>xawtv will play audio/video but mythtv freezes up with a black window when i go to watch tv after configuring the inputs and such
03:19<tmk>chutt: you around?
03:19<Chutt>tmk, yup
03:19<tmk>cool. If you can, woudl you mind installing lkcd?
03:19<tmk>saves crashdumps
03:19<Chutt>lythe, there's an error message on the console you ran myth from
03:19<lythe>it just says connecting to master backend
03:19<tmk>so when your myth crashes due to pvr250, it'll give me a traceback
03:20<tmk>i think i know what it is, but it'd make sure
03:20<lythe>the backend server doesnt print any connection message either, if it does at all
03:20<Chutt>lythe, then it's not able to connect to the backend.
03:20<bline>tmk: the weekly lockup?
03:20<lythe>oh really hrm
03:21<Chutt>tmk, it hasn't crashed recently
03:21<Chutt>haven't rebooted that machine in awhile
03:21<tmk>i think it's a schedule during irq time
03:21<tmk>ie semaphore sleep
03:21<tmk>which i'll be fixing as soon as i get the decoder going properly

03:56<Chutt>i think he is as well

03:57<jarodwilson>Oh duh. Salt Lake.
03:57<harrih>Hello, question to anyone who knows, how many records is a recorded program supposed to create in recordedmarkup table ?
03:57<jarodwilson>I'll try to catch him tomorrow then...
03:58<harrih>i have over 200000 records, is this normal ? I'm investigating a problem that freezes the frontend when fast forwarding
03:58<Chutt>harrih, lots.
03:59<harrih>does anyone else have this problem :;search_string=rebuffering;guest=1075237&t=search_engine#77629
04:00<jarodwilson>Nope. What capture card?
04:00<harrih>tvwonder ve
04:04<harrih>well, at least some other people seem to have the same problem, so if I hosed my install somehow, I'm not the only one :(
04:05<jarodwilson>Hm. I certainly can't be of much help.
04:05<jarodwilson>I've got a PVR-250
04:05<jarodwilson>(well, and an AVerTV Studio, but I haven't done much w/it yet)
04:06<harrih>I was thinking of getting a PVR-250 but the recording filesize put me off
04:07<lythe>anyone have suggestions on a nicely supported PCI sound card?
04:08-!-marc [~marc@] has joined #mythtv
04:08-!-harrih [] has quit []
04:08<jarodwilson>Yes, the PVR-250 file sizes are pretty big... but you can transcode post-record now.
04:09<jarodwilson>For a sound card, I've had very good experiences with several SoundBlaster Audigy OEM cards
04:10<jarodwilson>For a bit nicer card, I'm rather partial to the M-Audio Revolution 7.1

13:28<Chutt>a nehemiah m10k is ok as a frontend with a pvr-250
13:28<tmk>hey chutt: do you have your 350 hooked up to a TV
13:28<Chutt>not at the moment
13:28<tzanger>jkolb: I only have a BT878 card right now. eventually I want to do DVB capture since I am on ExpressVu (in Canada)
13:29<vektor>tzanger: Are you familiar with the issues of decrypting DVB content for ExpressVu?
13:30<tmk>i read a report that the decoder code in CVS works
13:30<tmk>much to my surprise
13:30<tmk>since it doesn't for me (it's choppy)
13:30<vektor>I have seen some of these add-on PCI cards for the encryption cardreader things, but I'm still unclear on whether or not it actually works in Linux with ExpressVu.
13:30<tmk>i'm wondering if it's a slow-box issue
13:30<vektor>The kernel-dvb driver is all done by PAL users who receive non-encrypted content.
13:30<tzanger>vektor: yeah but these DVB cards take the CAM (they're like $700 from Germany IIRC) -- so it's a "plain" DVB signal once it's done
13:31<vektor>So you'd buy some CAM module, am I getting this right?
13:31<tzanger>well no I'd use the CAM (smart card) from my current expressvu receiver
13:31<tzanger>I am a paying subscriber
13:32<vektor>Yeah but then you need a place to stick the card :)
13:32<vektor>I mean, I don't think the Hauppauge DVB card comes with one by default.
13:32<vektor>It's something you have to purchase separately.
13:32<tzanger>vektor: yes, they have a slot
13:32<tzanger>yeah let me see if I can dig up a link
13:32<vektor>So, then why aren't more people using this? :)

13:36<mechou>hey, choenig, how are you doing?
13:36<choenig>fine :-)
13:37<choenig>mechou: did you make any advance ?
13:37<mechou>choenig, I gave up trying getting wol to work on k7s5a
13:37<choenig>and how about the bios stuff?
13:37<mechou>figured out any short can restart computer, which was what happened yesterday.
13:38<mechou>nvram is also sad....
13:38<mechou>do I need to call hwclock -systohc if I'm using ntp?
13:39<mechou>nvram complains my linux system is not in sync with rtc....
13:39<tzanger>I thought it was one of those, but neither show a daughercard for the CAM
13:39<choenig>mechou: don't know, never had any issues like that
13:39<tzanger>actually the TT-DVBsat PCI 1.3 seems to show it
13:40<mechou>and thats absolutely correct in the case of ntp, Bios clock only gets read on startup (and written on shutdown)
13:40<tzanger>but Seca, Alphacrypt and Viaaccess (no nagravision)
13:41<Chutt>mostly have the cle266 decoder working
13:41<mechou>choenig, are you using ntp on your systems?
13:41<choenig>mechou: and it works after you syched it?
13:41<choenig>on all of'em
13:41-!-bbeattie [] has joined #mythtv
13:41<vektor>tzanger: I just get worried when it's so hard to find canadian companies that sell these cards.
13:42<mechou>choenig, so your rtc is alwas in sync with ntp time???
13:42<choenig>mechou: I don't know, I never tested that

13:43<choenig>mechou: nope, as I said, I cannot use nvram stuff due to my epox board, which is not supported...
13:43<choenig>mechou: but I used to use it with the one before
13:43<mechou>ok, do "nvram-wakeup -D" and tell me what's on the last 4 lines
13:44<mechou>oh, sorry....
13:44-!-bbeattie [] has quit [Client Quit]
13:44<choenig>but I'll check again, if smth changed... hold on
13:46<choenig>oh I hate that crap
13:47<tzanger>damned nagravision
13:48<mechou>choenig, because rtc on most systems is notoriously inaccurate, I think possibly wol (with ntp) is a better sol'n. I'm going to change out the k7s5a...
13:49<choenig>mechou: thats right, my systems are off > 1 min/day
13:49<mechou>and I don't think it's ntp's "job" to keep rtc to millisecond accuracy....
13:50<mechou>that's the whole point of using ntp, right? :)
13:50<choenig>its the problem, when the computer is off. when its on you don't have to care about the rtc
13:51<choenig>a nice little external clock which you set from the computer would be a neat sollution
13:51<mechou>this wakeup stuff is much more a PITA than I originally imagined, mostly because of this POS k7s5a....
13:52<mechou>so this is going take me a while ;)
13:53<choenig>have you tried diff'rent bios versions? in the usenet I read, that that could help
13:54<mechou>I tried scouring newsnet regarding the m/b. a lot of puzzled people wondering if wol works on m/b at all. Nothing real dinitive, like someone saying "I got wol to work this way...."
13:54<choenig>yeah, thats what I read, too
13:55<mikegrb>hmmm any recommendations on a command line tool to capture an image from a V4L source?
13:56<tzanger>what are (in your opinions') best choices for full-res vid cap cards
13:57<Chutt>easily =)
13:57<tzanger>that's the hauppage card?
13:58<mikegrb>ahh got it with v4lctrl
13:58<Chutt>good quality, no cpu usage on recording
13:58<Chutt>slightly higher playback requirements
13:59<Chutt>and slightly higher storage requirements, but, that's more than offset by the hardware encoding
14:00<mechou>choenig, it would be nice if nvram-wakeup was smart enough to look in the drift file and set rtc w/o regard wheter it is in sync with system time. It just needs to be "close"
14:00<mechou>when the system is up,that is....
14:01<jkolb>Chutt: The CLE266 is the via on-board decoder?
14:01<Chutt>well, it's the chipset name
14:01* Chutt stayed up late last night.
14:02<jkolb>See Mars?
14:02<Chutt>no, i was slaving over a hot computer to get that crap working
14:02<jkolb>I flew back from Oregon and went straight from the airport to the observatory. Still got there too late to use the big scope.
14:03<jkolb>They only had it open until midnight.
14:03<mechou>what observatory in OR??
14:03<jkolb>Flew back from OR. To Orlando. Went to the observatory at UCF.

14:04<choenig>mechou: why don't you simply call hwclock right before the nvram-stuff?
14:05<mechou>generally the plexiglass windows would be too scratchy for than anyways...
14:06<jkolb>The windows weren't too bad, and Mars was really bright from the ground, so I would imagine that it would have been really nice from the air. I would have gotten a really nice view were I allowed in the cockpit.

14:10<mechou>choenig, yeah, I don't think it should be too big a problem. probably setting rtc through ntpdc would be safest (makes coreections to drift file at the same time)....

19:13<jarodwilson>Yes, tmk, everyone SHOULD use ivtv!
19:13<jarodwilson>And the grey hauppauge remote work perfectly when set up right.
19:14<jarodwilson>Frankly, I'm finding all other cards to be relative junk, compared w/the PVR-x50s
19:14<n1hck>so if anyone is wondering.. PCHDTV card is awsome
19:14<jarodwilson>(I have 3 other cards besides the PVR-250, and thy all suck)
19:14<n1hck>but working with an ivtv card at the same time
19:14<n1hck>is sketchy
19:14<tmk>cool, what resolution does it capture at?
19:14<n1hck>all 18 ASTC digital formans
19:14<jarodwilson>That would be the only other card I'd take over a PVR-x50
19:14<n1hck>but thats the highest
19:14<tmk>is it mpg2 or what
19:15<jarodwilson>I'm planning on getting one soon too...
19:15<n1hck>well ivtv card and pchdtv dont like to do stuff at the same time so I have to reboot to switch back to the other one
19:15<jarodwilson>hdtv is streamed in mpeg2
19:15<tmk>yeah that's what i thought
19:15<n1hck>so by default I boot with ivtv but if I want I switch to hdtv and if i want to switch back i have to reboot
19:15<jarodwilson>so the card doesn't even have to encode; just write to disk
19:15<tmk>you can't just rmmod ivtv?
19:15<n1hck>here is what I do
19:15<n1hck>boot with ivtv
19:15<jarodwilson>I'll have to see if I can't get both working at once...
19:15<n1hck>ok i wanna do hdtv now
19:16<n1hck>rmmod ivtv modprobe bttv (modified for dtv stuff) the pchdtv driver
19:16<n1hck>ok hdtv stuff. now I want ivtv stuff back
19:16<n1hck>rmmod bttv
19:16<n1hck>modprobe ivtv
19:16<tmk>oh ok
19:16<n1hck>capture mpeg CRASHES
19:16<n1hck>so I found rebooting at this point allows ivtv to work again
19:16<tmk>hm. define crashes
19:16<n1hck>lock up machine
19:16<tmk>what error
19:16<n1hck>ivtv itself crashes and locks my machine completley
19:16<n1hck>no error
19:16<n1hck>just FREEZ
19:16<tmk>well, it probably generates an oops of some kind
19:16<n1hck>I hear a blip of audio and a FREEZ and thats that
19:16<jarodwilson>Not good.
19:17<tmk>n1hck, are you near that box now?
19:17<tmk>i have some new code that might fix the crash
19:17<n1hck>in any case, im sure they will work better once dtv stuff is in bttv and when ivtv matures im sure it will be better
19:17<n1hck>I am
19:17<jarodwilson>Is it possible both are trying to use /dev/video0 in some incompatible way?
19:17<n1hck>I am actually

19:21<knight->jarodwilson, i copied ivtv/utils/lircd-g.conf to /etc/lircd.conf and it works fine with irw, but mythfrontend doesnt even move... i copied lircrc to ~/.mythtv/lircrc too
19:22<jarodwilson>your lircrc file should actually go in ~/.lircrc
19:22<knight->i have it there too
19:22<jarodwilson>make sure irxevent is started
19:23<jarodwilson>then everything SHOULD work
19:23<knight->i'm talking about native lirc
19:23<knight->irxevent works fine
19:23<jarodwilson>My mistake.
19:23<jarodwilson>I haven't played w/native yet
19:23<jarodwilson>Where is your lircrc from?
19:24<jarodwilson>The one I'm thinking of relies on irxevent, but then I haven't looked at recent versions...
19:24<knight->right, so is there a native mythtv lircrc version?
19:25<jarodwilson>Not sure yet. I'm sure someone has one, otherwise there'd be no way to test the functionality...
19:25<jarodwilson>But the one from ivtv most likely won't cut it, since everything relies on irxevent
19:25<Chutt>posted to the mailing list along with the initial native lirc patch.
19:25<jarodwilson>I'm not sure what changes are needed.
19:25<knight->Chutt, ah thanks
19:26<jarodwilson>Is the lirc patch included in 0.11?

19:27<mattfelsen>i'm still getting blocky fonts in myth...i installed msttcorefonts and set up defoma (added the font paths) but no luck. i think it might be the actual font files though because the sasquatch osd, which uses its own tahoma.ttf, looks fine
19:27<jarodwilson>So just drop in a new lircrc, and I should be golden, right? :)
19:28<Chutt>amazing, things compile again
19:28<sc00p>speaking of native lirc support, does anyone know how to get Page_Up and Page_Down working properly?
19:28<knight->jarod, as long as you enabled lirc
19:28<Chutt>now time to see if they work.
19:28<Chutt>the 0.11 rpms don't, i don't think.
19:28<jarodwilson>I'm running it from the 0.11 ATrpms
19:29<jarodwilson>I'll talk to Axel and see about cutting some rpms w/native lirc enabled
19:29<mattfelsen>well if we're on the subject of the keys [, ], and | have names that are supposed to be used in .lircrc?
19:29<mattfelsen>channel up/down works, but volume up/down/mute doesn't
19:29<mattfelsen>and yea, i checked button names to make sure
19:30<knight->fyi,;postatt_id=1647;guest=1087369&t=search_engine is the link to the lircrc file included with the initial native lirc patch
19:30<knight->to be placed in ~/.mythtv
19:31<mattfelsen>oh, and on the blocky font note...the sasquatch osd looks nice and smooth, but the normal theme is blocky like the others
19:32<knight->but it doesnt seem to help
19:32<knight->still no response from mythfrontend
19:36<mattfelsen>and back to lirc...where is a list of key names that are supposed to be used?

21:54<Chutt>as the only thing that gets used is the resolution
21:54<Chutt>setting it to hardware mjpeg means you can't use a normal card in the system along with it

22:00<Chutt>i'm re-doing the video buffer internals
22:00<ahbritto>Captain_Murdoch_: I noticed commerical detection is flaky on Oxygen: la femme nikita, xena, and movies.
22:00<Chutt>i think i've got everything fixed
22:00<jarodwilson>Well, that Dana guy still needs to do some reading before spamming up the lists... :)
22:01<jarodwilson>I replied to myself, confessing my stupidity...
22:01<Chutt>i already did
22:01<Chutt>no worries :p
22:01<jarodwilson>I need to switch from digest mode, I think...
22:02<Chutt>i don't see anything different in the config for the two lists and digest mode
22:03<mikegrb>Captain_Murdoch_: I've just about got a new query the backend will recognize for see if recordings are in progress... my code works for the HTTP status stuff (it prints if each encorder is encoding or not) but I'm getting a compile error on the exact same code in my HandleIsRecording function... mind looking at the patch?
22:03<Captain_Murdoch_>Chutt, I'll take a quick look once you commit. I've been working on logo detection recently to try to help eliminate some false positives.

22:06<ahbritto>lots of false positives.
22:06<Captain_Murdoch_>so it skips part of the show?

22:08<ahbritto>Actually, i didn't make a note of that, but it does work for some of the breaks.
22:08<mikegrb>Captain_Murdoch_: sent... right now it returns the number of in progress recordings but the line sent from the frontend is passed to the function so I figured default action would be return the number and if there were arguments that could ask for other stuff eg details of what is being recorded like you were interested in
22:08<ahbritto>I will pay more attention in the future.
22:09<ahbritto>Captain_Murdoch_: Would you like me to place a few shows on a web server for download?
22:09<Captain_Murdoch_>ahbritto: just trying to figure out why it's messing up. do you recall what kind of logo that station uses?
22:10<ahbritto>Extra-bright (whitish) small in the lower right corner.
22:11<mikegrb>Captain_Murdoch_: I'm sure the compile problem is simple but I'm not certain what is causing it.... it complains abt a function not existing, I guess a possibility is it isn't in the header as the HTTP stuff is at the bottom so the function would still be defined first
22:11<Captain_Murdoch_>ahbritto: might just be a good idea to wait until I commit the logo detection stuff and see if that helps out. is the logo opaque or transparent?

22:22<newman234>hey guys i have 2 questions ... 1) I don't have the /etc/init.d/lircd file but everything seems to be installed and 2) Although i can successfully test my remote using irw, i get an error message from irxevent saying it can't find the config file .. any ideas?
22:22<Chutt>i've committed quite a bit of crap today
22:22<Captain_Murdoch>just curious. I'll probably put the logo detection stuff in CVS in about a week and a half. don't think I'll get to it before I have to go out of town.
22:23<ahbritto>Captain_Murdoch: Would I need cvs, or could I just replace the file in v0.11?
22:23<newman234>btw i have myth tv up and running... with out the remote of course because of the failure of the irwevent app
22:23<Captain_Murdoch>it's modifying about 3 files and I doubt they'd be compatible with 0.11 since there's been a few changes including Chutt's stuff just now.
22:25<ahbritto>Captain_Murdoch: I have a few machines, I can compile with cvs on one, just to do commerical detection testing.

22:31<Chutt>in the email announcing it, i meant
22:31<kja>yea, just replyed to it =)
22:33<kja>i also have some reports that it has some problems on DVB-T/C
22:33<Chutt>oh, are you still using the xvmc stuff?
22:33<Chutt>i'll have that fixed up so it can still play back software encodes soon
22:34<kja>no, haven't tried it in a bit...are down to just over 10% load on the normal output, so...
22:35<kja>but what the heck, now that i'm running a stable system, it would be a refreshment to have some bugs in there again :)
22:39<kja>i'm pondering on whether expanded cam support or dvb hardware decoding should be my next *thing*

23:31<bline>wow, first time I've been emailed personally about code I did..
23:33<Captain_Murdoch>wait till you start getting "when are you gonna write feature XYZ" emails. :)
23:35<Captain_Murdoch>Chutt, commercial detection still seems to work as normal except for the fact that it now prints that "Over/underscanning" message. Can we only print that if winw and winh are non-zero in VideoOutput::Init()
23:39<bline>it was about the lirc stuff, i cced the users list
23:40<bline>kinda wish I didn't abuse qkeysequence now..

23:42<linagee>does anyone know why when you run out of disk space and go to delete a show why it hangs at the "Are you sure you want to delete this show?" screen?
23:42<linagee>is that a linux thing or a mythtv thing?
23:42<Chutt>captain_murdoch, yah, that's cool.
23:43<linagee>(i know linux itself probably doesn't like you running out of disk space entirely...)
23:45<Captain_Murdoch>Chutt: you want to commit or me to? that would print every time the flagging thread ran that's why it needs to be suppressed.
23:46<Captain_Murdoch>linagee: is it a 0-byte file?
23:46<Captain_Murdoch>shouldn't matter I guess.
23:56<Chutt>go ahead and commit it
