02:13<thor_>Chutt, seem to be some decent patches flowing in. Sorry I've been a bit absent recently (real work). MythBurn is moving ... but very slowly ....
02:17<CaCtus491>MythBurn, that sounds interesting :)
02:17<thor_>it's coming ... albeit slowly
02:18<CaCtus491>What does it burn?
02:19<thor_>Hmmm .... discs
02:19<CaCtus491>lol, to cd or dvd or both?
02:20<thor_>at this point .... nothing
02:20<thor_>(code is a mess)
02:20<thor_>soon CDs
02:20<thor_>later, those versatile thingyies
02:24<CaCtus491>ahh, well, sounds promising, looking forward to it!
02:25<tmk>i want a button that makes svcd's of my stuff :)
02:26<thor_>tmk, yeah ... well ... the mtd is doing the transcoding
02:26<thor_>but still ....
02:27<thor_>there's something very un-mythical about software to **remove** content from your "mythical" convergence box
02:28<tmk>well i wouldnt have to if storage wasn't finite
02:28<CaCtus491>Is there currently a way to record something when watching live tv? ie, I'm watching a show and an interesting segment comes that I want to keep for someone else, but its a short segment and by the time I exit go to start an instant recording it would already be halfway through
02:29<thor_>not a gui way
02:29<thor_>you could always hand copy the .nuv ring buffer somewhere
02:30<CaCtus491>yeah, unfortunately I could but the non techie people who are going to be using it.
02:31<CaCtus491>I'd really like to contribute to this project, but still in the process of getting a decent setup going
02:31<thor_>the code is not that complicated ... even I understand most of it
02:32<thor_>tmk, you still in BC?
02:32<CaCtus491>one of my main interests it to extend mythgallery a bit
02:33-!-DJHaCK [] has joined #mythtv
02:33<thor_>CaCtus491, MythGallery is in desperate need of day to day ownership
02:34-!-warlord [me@] has joined #mythtv
02:34<CaCtus491>I'd love to see features suchs as a nice web interface + ordering prints through ppl like fotowire
02:35<CaCtus491>but it looks like it will have to wait a bit until I can arrange a bit of time
02:38<thor_>tmk, sorry .. I have youy confused with someone else ....
02:39<thor_>CaCtus49, if you want it to work better ... then ....
02:42<CaCtus491>thor_: yup, I understand that for sure and I have every intention to... need to brush up on C++ a bit first :)
02:43<CaCtus491>is there any list as to who is actively working on what atm?
02:43<CaCtus491>up until you just mentioned it, I had no idea that there was a mythburn in progress
02:45-!-tmk [] has quit []
02:45<thor_>CaCtus491, this irc channel is the most effective guide ... it's open source, after all ...
02:45-!-warlord [me@] has quit ["Client Exiting"]
02:46<CaCtus491>ahh, the joys of working on open source :)
02:46<CaCtus491>btw, this irc channel is also hard to find... (well, atleast before the recent post to the list)
02:47<CaCtus491>...I think I saw it at the end of one of the README files for one of the modules
02:47<thor_>I think that's vaguely by design\
02:47<CaCtus491>yeah, I was thinking that, so it stays more of a development thing rather than a help chan?
02:48<thor_>no cultural bias against newbies, just a bandwidth thing
03:03<jarodwilson>thor_, I promised you some feedback on mythmusic by the end of this past weekend... I haven't forgot, just had an unexpected funeral to deal with...
03:04<jarodwilson>I still plan to, but its been a far more hectic week than anticipated...
03:05-!-thor_ [~thor@] has quit ["using sirc version 2.211+KSIRC/1.2.1"]
03:05-!-thor_ [~thor@] has joined #mythtv
03:06<thor_>jarodwilson, no biggie
03:06<jarodwilson>I actually took some time to play with it this afternoon (0.11 release version though)
03:07<jarodwilson>Better than I remembered, but very sluggish
03:07<jarodwilson>Of course, all 10k songs are on a network share, contributing to the matter
03:07<thor_>hmmmm ....
03:08<thor_>hey ... post your problems ... at worst they'll be ignored
03:08<jarodwilson>I tried to edit a playlist while in play mode, then hit escape to get back to the play screen, and there was about a 10 second pause with no feeback and no control
03:09<jarodwilson>I probably should limit the bitching until I try the cvs version...
03:09<thor_>mythmusic has not changed much (if at all) between 0.11 and cvs
03:10<jarodwilson>Oh yeah, last time I had a remote only. Now I have a Gyration keyboard. It makes navigating my song tree MUCH faster
03:10<CaCtus491>mythmusic? heh, one problem I had was I made a typo in the music storge location so that it was pointing to a nonexistant directory... Myth segfaults rather than politely saying that the path doesn't exist :)
03:10<jarodwilson>I think it took about 30 minutes to scan in my entire collection, the first minute or two with zero feedback
03:10<thor_>CaCtus491, yeah, that's an issue ...
03:11<jarodwilson>thor_, just to clarify, was the "has not changed much" a license to bitch now then? :)
03:11<thor_>bitch away
03:11<jarodwilson>Though I was supposed to be focusing more on UI, I think...
03:12<CaCtus491>I really like some of the visualisations in mythmusic
03:12<jarodwilson>I really like feeding my amp via coax digital...
03:13<thor_>Mythmusic is a bastardization of code
03:13<thor_>Chutt wrote most of it very quickly
03:13<thor_>I have tried to clean things a bit
03:13<thor_>but it is still a bad piece of code
03:14<jarodwilson>Hey, doesn't xmms have optional lirc support? I should look at how it does things...
03:14<jarodwilson>The more I poke through the source code, things are coming back to me...
03:15<jarodwilson>I used to know how to do some programming, just never had any practical application for it...
03:15<thor_>xmms source, or myth source ?
03:15<CaCtus491>can the volume be adjusted from within mythmusic, or can songs be deleted from the disk?
03:15-!-FryGuy [] has quit [Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer)]
03:15<jarodwilson>I wonder if rhytmbox has any sort of lirc support in the works...
03:16<thor_>CaCtus491, yes and no
03:16<jarodwilson>er, rhythmbox
03:17<jarodwilson>What I'm trying to envision is an interface like that of rhythmbox, and you hit a key to move from section to section of the UI. You select something within a section, hit another key, and a contextual menu pops up
03:17<thor_>despite the degree of hodge-podging, MythMusic is still a great user-level experience
03:18<thor_>jarodwilson, from play, then 3, then what is the limitation ?
03:18<jarodwilson>Select your library from the playlist section, switch to the song list for the library, select the song (or songs) you're after, hit a key to get a menu of what to do w/the song
03:19<jarodwilson>the switching of screens bugs me, I thin
03:19<thor_>you do have ShowWholeTree on?
03:19<jarodwilson>I like everything on one screen
03:19<jarodwilson>Probably not...
03:19<jarodwilson>Forgot to look into that...
03:19<thor_>do that
03:20<jarodwilson>uno momento, por favor...
03:20<thor_>up, down, left, right, and select everything in your possesion
03:21<thor_>..... while jarod is fiddling, I'm going out for a smoke ...
03:22<CaCtus491>what keys are used to skip to the next / previous song?
03:26<jarodwilson>cripes... gotta wait another week for the music database to fill...
03:26<jarodwilson>(I'm on a different frontend than before)
03:28<thor_>CaCtus491, up/down to selection, then enter (to move to any arbitrary song). To just get to the next one in the list, PageDown.
03:29<CaCtus491>ahh, thanks
03:30<CaCtus491>is there any reason for key differences between mythtv and mythmusic? ie, volume uses different keys, ff / rw, etc?
03:31<thor_>The idea is that PageDown (and, btw, PageUp) will be mapped to Next/Prev keys on a standard remote layout
03:49<CaCtus491>wow, that does take a while :)
03:50<jarodwilson>now 22%...
03:51<thor_>jarodwilson, hmmm ... all mp3's ?
03:51<jarodwilson>no, a mix of mp3 and ogg
03:51<jarodwilson>oh, and a few aac
03:52<thor_>have no idea what mmusic will do with acc
03:52<thor_>probably puke
03:52<jarodwilson>Perhaps this is a contributing factor to some of my sluggishness?
03:53<thor_>aac's ... maybe (?)
03:53<thor_>mp3 for sure
03:54<thor_>mythmusic was designed to like ogg and hate mp3
03:54<jarodwilson>mp3 slows it down?
03:54<jarodwilson>Of the 10,000 songs, I'd wager a guess at least 80% are mp3.
03:54<thor_>mp3 is not an open standard
03:54<jarodwilson>I know. But its what I got. :)
03:54<CaCtus491>does ogg play in wpm?
03:54<CaCtus491>err, wmp even
03:55<jarodwilson>Oh, and iTunes doesn't work very well w/ogg.
03:55<thor_>ogg is open, install the software and it will play
03:55<jarodwilson>Just the opposite problem as MM. Very quick w/mp3 and aac, slow as all hell w/ogg
03:55<jarodwilson>The quicktime ogg plugin is relative crap.
03:56<thor_>this is the same reason that mythdvd wants to sub-xvid for divx
03:56<jarodwilson>It works, but it is very slow. Reading tags and starting playback takes WAY more time than mp3/aac
03:56<thor_>yes ... but it will get faster
03:57<thor_>and you'll get to keep your files
03:57<jarodwilson>which, the ogg plug for quicktime, or the mp3 playback for MM?
03:57<thor_>your liberties
03:58<jarodwilson>And aac?
03:58<jarodwilson>In particular, the aac files from the iTunes music store, which have playback protection...
03:58<thor_>Play 'em if you've got 'em
03:59<thor_>but that's drm nonsense
03:59<jarodwilson>I have yet to try them on anything but a Mac, which prompts for authorization
03:59<jarodwilson>I can always burn them out to CD, then re-rip them, but I'd rather not.
03:59<thor_>... stupid ...,
04:00<thor_>and, even stupid, ...
04:00<jarodwilson>It was the only way Apple could get record labels to let them sell songs.
04:00<jarodwilson>Compared to some proposed methods, their drm is very liberal.
04:00<jarodwilson>But it still sucks. :)
04:00<thor_>it was the only way Apple could bullshit the labels that they has a "DRM" mechanism in place
04:01<jarodwilson>31% scanned in...
04:01<jarodwilson>So when you said MM was designed to hate mp3, do you mean it is deliberately slower w/mp3 than ogg?
04:02<thor_>but not cause we hate mp3's
04:02<thor_>just cause the ogg/vorbis lib is easy
04:03<thor_>(the ogg file format tells you where to read the playing length. With mp3, you need to actually play the file)
04:05<jarodwilson>So are you saying when I'm scanning in songs, if I want to know how long each is ahead of time, they all have to be played a bit before the track time can be determined?
04:06<thor_>If they're oggs, you need to just load the header (plus a wee bit).
04:06<thor_>If they're mp3's, you need to "play" the whole track
04:07<jarodwilson>Which of course, takes much more time, processing, data reading, etc. Huh.
04:08<thor_>MythMusic tries to be efficient if it looks like the file is Constant Bit Rate
04:12<jarodwilson>And of course, most of the mp3 rips I've done myself are HQ-VBR
04:14<thor_>MP3 VBR is insanely stupid .... there is no way to know how long a rip is unless you play it ...
04:15<thor_>which means, "this is a meta-content standard which knows nothing about meta-data"
04:18<jarodwilson>If I'm not mistaken, Apple takes certain liberties with the tags...
04:18<jarodwilson>And puts the track length in a tag
04:18<thor_>Yup ....
04:18<thor_>but that's not information
04:19<thor_>it's opinion
04:19-!-_rkulagow [] has joined #mythtv
04:19<jarodwilson>Opinion? How do you mean?
04:19-!-Netsplit <-> quits: paulproteus, hadees, echo, Jerry, Ripp, sc00p, reza_, Snow-Man
04:20<thor_>jarodwilson, Apple can assert track length in a field
04:20-!-mecraw_ [] has joined #mythtv
04:20<jarodwilson>But it might not be right is what you're saying?
04:21-!-echo [foobar@] has joined #mythtv
04:21-!-Netsplit over, joins: Snow-Man
04:21<jarodwilson>But that info is somehow retained in ogg file header
04:21<thor_>ogg is vastly superior to mp3
04:22<jarodwilson>I know.
04:22<jarodwilson>And I wish Apple would get off their asses and support it better...
04:22<jarodwilson>But wait!!! What about WMA!!!
04:22<jarodwilson>(jarod immediately gets kicked)
04:23* thor_ thinks copyright is fucked

04:55<o_cee\zZz>a little
04:55-!-o_cee\zZz is now known as o_cee
04:55<o_cee>trying to get some work done
05:03<reza_>work on myth or on work?
05:03<o_cee>work :(
05:03<reza_>i'm having wired issues with gdb... when the external change channel command gets called, gdb gets confused
05:03<o_cee>or studies to be more specific
05:03<reza_>know anything about it
05:03<reza_>what are you studying?
05:03<o_cee>never used it
05:04<o_cee>java at the moment
05:04<reza_>and why is my cvs update taking soo long?
05:04<reza_>java sucks
05:04<reza_>a lot
05:04<o_cee>yeeesh, me knows that
05:04<o_cee>but alot of it is very similar to c++
05:04<o_cee>wich i will be reading later on
05:04<reza_>of what i know, i like the following langs in order "perl, C, python, java"..
05:04<reza_>just picked up a book on C++, but it's easy enough to follow the code
05:06-!-MinmayIsABimbo [] has quit [Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)]
05:22<o_cee>CaCtus491: here?
05:22<CaCtus491>for a little bit
05:23<o_cee>you said you wanted to do stuff on mythgallery?
05:23<KikoV>has somebody a epia m9000 working with mythtv?
05:24<CaCtus491>o_cee: yeah, but not right now, in a few wks
05:24<o_cee>CaCtus491: we had some discussion before about it.. thumbcache needs a better inplementation, and fade/wipe isn't even read from the database as far as i can see
05:24<o_cee>you could put those on your todo if you hadn't noticed them yourself ;)
05:26<CaCtus491>to tell you the truth, I haven't really played with mythgallery much yet, basically installed it and that's it :)
05:26<CaCtus491>but, yeah, will look into it as soon as I get time
05:27<o_cee>great. what i mean with the thumbcache is that it would be nice to keep the thumbs locally if the drive is a network drive (could just be an option "Keep thumbs locally in: ")
05:27<o_cee>and the SlideshowTransition will probably be very easy to get there, just gotta read som Qt docs
05:28<o_cee>someone must have forgotten it

05:39* ay says hi.
05:40<ay>I get router loops on my way to mythtv-cvs.
05:41<ay> and does some funky stuff.
05:41<KikoV>cvs up
05:41<KikoV>cvs [update aborted]: connect to failed: No route to host
05:41* ay would love to get his hands on mythnews (using to i develop my own little plugin)
05:42<ay>KikoV: Right you are.
05:42<ay>The original ftp-server for mythtnews seems down as well.
05:42<choenig>ay: if you like, I can send you a fresh co
05:43<ay>choenig: Thanks. That will do :-)
05:43<KikoV>traceroute -> let's see
05:43<ay>KikoV: Probably the loop i mentioned.
05:44<ay>choenig: if you need a email-address.
05:44<KikoV>22 ( 187.930 ms 187.922 ms 350.107 ms
05:44<choenig>ok, just have to start my mythbox
05:44<ay>It isn't on 24/7? :-)
05:46<choenig>ay: mail is on its way
05:46<choenig>ay: the server should be available 24/7
05:47* ay doesn't use the server.
05:47* ay does not have any tv-cards.
05:48<ay>Only running the frontend (and i run the backend on the same machine since some plugins live better with a database)
05:48<ay>choenig: Thanks!
05:48<choenig>ah, ay, you meant my mythbox? no, its not running 24/7
05:49<choenig>but it powers up and down when needed to record and stuff
05:50-!-thor_ [~thor@] has quit ["using sirc version 2.211+KSIRC/1.2.1"]
05:52<o_cee>me has gotta fix that as well..
05:52<o_cee>haven't had time yet
05:55<choenig>o_cee: fix what?
05:56<o_cee>choenig: automatik start/shutdown
05:56<choenig>I hope I get my patch to issac within the next two weeks
05:56<o_cee>with that stuff?
05:57<o_cee>nice :) but the pita is to get the bios settings
05:57<choenig>I don't use bios w/u here, I use my 24/7 router to wakeup the box using wol
05:58<choenig>but the patch is fully configurable and lets you decide the way to go
05:59<o_cee>oh.. hmm, too bad i ain't using freesco anymore. got a dsl/router thingie.
06:02<choenig>I use wol since my mobo isn't supported by the w/u tools I know of
06:02<ay>Argh. Compiling on the xbox is painfull.
06:03<ay>loopback on a fatx-partition...
06:04<o_cee>choenig: yeah, i'll have to look into that.. what tools are there?
06:06<choenig> and
06:06<choenig>but the 2nd one only supports a handful mobos
06:10<o_cee>doesn't seem to exist for my mobo..
06:11<o_cee>at least not that specific mb
06:11<choenig>nvram-w/u has some neat detection stuff
06:12<o_cee>i think i tried that but failed.. will have to redo it i guess. was alot of rebooting :)
06:13<choenig>hehe, same here
06:17<reza_>hey, does anyone know how to use sockets within QT -- but local/unix sockets, not tcp sockets?

08:04<o_cee>cvs dead :/
08:09<reza_>i spend the past 3 hours working on adding somewhat native lirc support to myth only to find it's already there...
08:09<reza_>is this a new thing?
08:18<jkolb>Looks like the first native lirc support went in Aug 4.
08:19<reza_>is this only to receive text, or are they going to add support to change channels?
08:20<jkolb>I haven't played with it, but I think it's just support so you don't need irxevent.
08:23<dja>reza_: so far it's only to receive IR -- note that if you're using mythvideo or mythdvd, you still need irxevent (as a matter of fact, I turned native lirc back off since many of the keys used by mplayer overlap with myth)
08:29<ay>All the mythcomponentes (mythvideo,mythgallery/mythtmusic) should be able to read files from several locations.
08:29<ay>Is that possible now?
08:29<o_cee>don't think so
08:29<ay>I have my videos in several different directories.
08:29<o_cee>would be nice indeed
08:29<ay>locally on the xbox, on two differnt samba/nfsd shares..
08:30<ay>Hm. Routing on the internet is really fucket up today.
08:30<jkolb>You can fake it for now by making your root dir, then symlinking to each of the video dirs.
08:31<ay>Will mythvideo take subdirs?
08:31<jkolb>Yeah. All of my videos are in a nice hierarchy.
08:31<ay>Might be that everybody is updating their cisco's.
08:31<ay>(they use openssh...)
08:31<ay> is also down.
08:32<ay>cvs here is down because of a routerloop.

09:10<ZeoTherm>Can I put forward a question that may have been answered a lot of times?
09:11<ZeoTherm>I just updated myth to v0.11, and I updated my ivtv drivers to the latest CVS. Now when I try and browse the program guide, the backend segfaults. I saw this reported a few times in a developer forum, but I never saw a fix for it. Any suggestions?

14:55-!-choenig [] has joined #mythtv
14:57<tmk>rk: nah that was for rgi
14:57<_rkulagow>chutt: there's a mandrake glibc-debug that i can install since it appears that threads 5 and 6 have to do with libc.
14:57<_rkulagow>let me see what that breaks.
14:58<_rkulagow>tmk: ok.
15:02<_rkulagow>hrmm. ok, so now i have a /usr/lib/debug where libc is 18MB instead of 1.2MB. what's the magic word to have that libc used rather than the one in /lib?
15:03<_rkulagow>(actually, that's semi-rhetorical while i search around...)
15:04<monkeyBox>Is there such thing as a TV tuner that can replace a Digital-Cable box, such as the ones given by Time-Warner Digital Cable or Cox Digital Cable ?
15:04<_rkulagow>for digital channels (>125), no. there's no digital cable standard yet.
15:05<monkeyBox>So for now we'd have to use an ir-blaster, correct?
15:05<_rkulagow>you'll have to go analog out the set top box into your capture card.
15:05<_rkulagow>ir-blaster or serial control of the STB, yes.
15:05<monkeyBox>I wonder, does the OSD on the STB interfere with MythTV's OSD? is there a way to turn off the STB's OSD?
15:06<monkeyBox>I guess it probably depends on the STB maker...
15:06<_rkulagow>that depends on the STB. check avsforum, or google around a bit.

16:45<o_cee>it didn't record the last minute or so :(
16:47<[DOA]Tarkie>series 2 or 3?
16:47<o_cee>ah well, bumped it up, but i thought it was prettty straaange
16:47<o_cee>first episode
16:48<o_cee>we're a bit late her eyou know
16:48<[DOA]Tarkie>im still watching season 1 on DVD
16:48<[DOA]Tarkie>im upto 16:00 :)
16:48<o_cee>but i saw the problem now. the listning says it should have ended at 9:55.. ended 10:03.. bad listning and delay.. dammit
16:48<o_cee>it's great, i have it on dvd as well
16:49<o_cee>missed the first season
16:49<o_cee>9:00 24 9:55.. next program starts at 10.. right, that make sense
16:50<o_cee>anyway, bmped up the settings, shouldn't happen again
16:50<[DOA]Tarkie>do you set it to prerecord, and overrecord?
16:50<o_cee>but 4 minutes wasn't enough
16:50<[DOA]Tarkie>season 2, first episode, last 5 mins?
16:50<[DOA]Tarkie>is that where he dies?
16:50* [DOA]Tarkie ponders.
16:51<o_cee>we wheren't delayed when watching, so i missed like 30 seconds max
16:52<[DOA]Tarkie>how did you put your channel info in mythtv?
16:52<_rkulagow>fuck. lirc hasn't worked for a while, and it's always been annoying me, since there wasn't a good reason. now i know. running a self-compiled version to support the hauppauge remote. included the i2c 2.8.0 patch. still nothing. turns out that mandrake cooker installs lirc modules as a part of the kernel whether or not you install lirc. and since they get installed "higher up" in /usr/lib, they over-ride the ones that lirc install
16:52<o_cee>[DOA]Tarkie: ??
16:52<_rkulagow>and they're the 0.6.6 version, not 0.7.0pre.
16:52<[DOA]Tarkie>i've managed to watch TV, live, using mplayer
16:52<_rkulagow>stupid mandrake.
16:53<[DOA]Tarkie>but i cant get my head around how i put the channels in
16:53<o_cee>uh, mythfilldatabase??

21:07<ChamPro>I downloaded everything off of thac's site
21:07<ChamPro> everything except the SRC packages
21:09-!-hadees [] has quit [Read error: 113 (No route to host)]
21:09<[DOA]Tarkie>when you say there are a *lot* of unexpected dependencies, how many is a lot?
21:09<ChamPro>12 or 15
21:09<ChamPro>and my update source didn't have them
21:10<ChamPro>and Mandrake didn't request them either
21:11<[DOA]Tarkie>i would get a list tbh, and then pop back to see if they are unusual
21:11-!-ChamProX [] has joined #mythtv
21:11<ChamProX>I'll try it again them
21:11<[DOA]Tarkie>as 12 - 15 rpm dependencies doesnt sound massive
21:11<[DOA]Tarkie>i remember i had to get some wiered perl dependencies when i built
21:11<[DOA]Tarkie>but i am using rh, not mandrake
21:12-!-StarHeart [] has quit [Remote closed the connection]
21:13<[DOA]Tarkie>i think, in the end, i needed most of these packages, so dont be surprise if your asked for any of these
21:13<[DOA]Tarkie>but they are rh9 ones
21:16<ChamProX>divxdecore and divxencore are 2 that it requests

21:59<bbeattie>thor: around?
22:00<bbeattie>*is pretty sure he is*
22:01<bbeattie>thor: I'm having problems getting AC3 audio after I've riped a dvd. Basically what I see is I rip with ac3, and when I play it through xine, I only get pro logic, not the digital stream, and idea why? (DVD playback in xine with ac3/dd/dts works.
22:04<bbeattie>thor: ahh, it's working, but it's DD, not DTS.. odd.
22:04<bbeattie>the dvd has DD and DTS, but I selected the DTS track... any idea on if you can stat a file for DD vs DTS in it?
22:05<tmk>thor isn't in the channel
22:06-!-ChamProNix [] has quit ["Client exiting"]
22:06<bbeattie>should I not msg him then?
22:06<tmk>well, you shouldn't expect a response :)
22:15<bbeattie>wrong thor :)
22:16<bbeattie>.. has anyone done dvdriping and ac3 encoding at that?
22:16<tmk>hmm the fb crashes fast :)
