00:06<ChaosExiguum>dunno, but tight sounds good
00:07<Netslayer>think it's tab
00:07<ChaosExiguum>that sounds more correct
00:07<thor_>nope, tab
00:08<Netslayer>still trying to figure out how to get mine to autolaunch back and frontend with autologin.. that combo doesn't seem to work well in kde
00:08<ChaosExiguum>I only use my myth box for mythfrontend, so its ubersmall footprint is welcome

09:35<Sofr>i'm a looser baby... yeah, 3.6MB due to the base64 encoding

17:28<o_cee>anyone good at qt?
17:35<o_cee>anyone tried my theme then? only got two responses so far
17:41<rcam>o_cee Link?
17:44<o_cee>you don't want to run it
17:44<o_cee>if you don't use cvs
17:48<o_cee>Captain_Murdoch: you alive?
17:48<rcam>o_cee I would like to see a screenshot.
17:49<o_cee>one sec
17:50<o_cee>not 100% updated shots
17:51<billytwowilly>o_cee: I agree with whoever was talking about your theme earlier. It's really quite nice, but it'd be better if there was a physical change in the color of the highlighted menu option (ie to a light grey maybe) and also the down arrow doesn't match the selector arrow.
17:51<pmowry>0_cee: I'm running the latest CVS. I can give it a try in about 2 hrs. Since you asked about qt should I be looking for a problem?
17:52<billytwowilly>hey, screen three has matching arrows;)
17:52-!-jeffpc [] has quit [Remote closed the connection]
17:52<rcam>thor_ You around?
17:52<billytwowilly>I really like the theme o_cee
17:52<o_cee>billytwowilly: i removed the selector arrow.. but yeah, i also thought about making the selected item a little bit more distinctive
17:53<o_cee>thx ;)
17:53<billytwowilly>did you make all the graphics yourself?
17:53<o_cee>pmowry: cool, do that. no, qt is another thing
17:53<o_cee>billytwowilly: no, another guy
17:53<billytwowilly>They look quite nice.
17:53<o_cee>yah, i know :) amazing
17:54<o_cee>the guy who makes them is like 14
17:54<billytwowilly>I'm using the purple galaxy theme right now and it need exactly what this one has; something to fill up the right side of the screen;)
17:54<billytwowilly>are they releaseable under the gpl?
17:54<thor_>that depends
17:54* kvandivo smirks.
17:54<o_cee>billytwowilly: used with kind permission, and no, no gpl on those (as the readme says)
17:54<rcam>thor_ Hello. Did you do MythAudio?
17:54<o_cee>there' no such thing
17:54<thor_>Music ?
17:55<billytwowilly>o_cee: no readme with the screenshots;)
17:55<o_cee>billytwowilly: noo, but the downloadable
17:55<rcam>thor_ Yes, I meant Music.
17:55<thor_>Chutt wrote the first few versions, I (and others) added a bunch of stuff
17:55<rcam>thor_ May I PM you?
17:56<o_cee>thor_: how well do you know qt and the datetime stuff?
17:56<billytwowilly>How many developers are working on mythtv right now?
17:56<thor_>rcam, yup
17:56<thor_>o_cee, reasonably ....
17:56-!-choenig [] has joined #mythtv
17:57<o_cee>thor_: trying to do something like: QDateTime RecStarts = QDateTime::fromString((*iter)->recstartts,Qt::ISODate);
17:57<o_cee>i get: mainserver.cpp:2529: no matching function for call to `QDateTime::fromString(
17:57<o_cee> QDateTime&, Qt::DateFormat)'
17:57<o_cee>/usr/qt/3/include/qdatetime.h:224: candidates are: static QDateTime
17:57<o_cee> QDateTime::fromString(const QString&, Qt::DateFormat = Qt::TextDate)
17:57<thor_>ah, ISO dates
17:57-!-brunes [] has joined #mythtv
17:57<o_cee>static stuff and const stuff
17:57<brunes>should patches ofr mythweb be sent to mythtv-dev ?
17:57<o_cee>don't really see the problem
17:57<o_cee>brunes: yes
17:57<thor_>qt <--> mysql don't see perfectly eye 2 eye on dates
17:57<thor_>see , for example .... (looking it up) ....
17:58<o_cee>think its that easy?
17:58<thor_>ah, hang on, you just want to set a date today ?
17:59<o_cee>i want to grab a date and time for each of the shows
17:59<o_cee>so i can print out how long its until that recording
17:59<thor_>ah, that's what I thought
17:59<thor_>one sec ...
17:59<brunes>its a patch to make the JS work properly in KHTML
17:59<o_cee>need it in QDateTime then
18:00-!-schwin97 [] has joined #mythtv
18:01<thor_>grep that for "Qt and MySQL can't agree on a friggin"
18:01<o_cee>yeah, okay
18:01<o_cee>got it
18:02<o_cee>QDateTime GuideDataThrough;
18:02<o_cee>querytext = QString("SELECT max(endtime) FROM program;");
18:02<o_cee>QSqlQuery query = m_db->exec(querytext);
18:02<o_cee>GuideDataThrough = QDateTime::fromString(query.value(0).toString(),
18:02<o_cee> Qt::ISODate);
18:02<o_cee>how can that workie?
18:03<o_cee>that tostring has to do magic?
18:03<thor_>you have to fiddle with the query value
18:03<thor_>to munge into what Qt sees as an ISO Date
18:03<o_cee>that query gives answer without - or :
18:04<o_cee>20031214000000 like that
18:04<thor_>do you care about seconds minutes ?
18:04<o_cee>should be like: "Will record in 1hour 4 minutes and 5 seconds"
18:05<thor_>well, you have to do the inserts like in that url above
18:05<thor_>(at least that's one way to do it)
18:05<o_cee>question is why that other stuff works
18:05<thor_>which other stuff?
18:05<o_cee>the tostring
18:06<o_cee>that i cpoied
18:06-!-jeffpc [] has joined #mythtv
18:06<thor_>toString() is built into Qt (?)
18:06<o_cee>seems like it should be the toString of QSqlQuery
18:06<o_cee>is it like holiday and stuff in the us now?
18:07<thor_>sorry phone call
18:07<pmowry>Last thursday was a Holiday, so a lot of people have long weekends
18:07<pmowry>Make the most of vacation time.

18:27<brunes>i know why it is when it is
18:27<brunes>but IMO it should be moved :P
18:28<lmatter>don't move it, just add more :-)
18:28<brunes>it was moved before but not tnough :)
18:28<brunes>up here its at the end of Oct, so you have a 2 month buffer before xmas

18:36<thor_>o_cee, I think the example will do what you want ...
18:37<o_cee>i got a step further now
18:37<o_cee> qdtNow.secsTo((*iter)->recstartts)
18:38<o_cee>because that one returns a QDateTime
18:38<o_cee>i could swear i already tried that
18:38<thor_>ah, that'll do
18:38<o_cee>now i just need to figure out a good way to output it nicely
18:38<o_cee>looking through qt docs
18:38<thor_>lots of % 60 :-)
18:39<o_cee>yeah, guess so
18:40-!-Apophis [~btatton@] has quit ["Leaving"]
18:42<o_cee>blergh, can't even think clearly on how to do it :)
18:45<thor_>see mythmusic
18:45<thor_>song time display
18:46<thor_>in playbackbox.cpp somewhere (grep for % 60)
18:46<o_cee>isaac seems to have changed some keybindings in mythmusic
18:47<thor_>key bindings are in a state of flux
18:47<o_cee>yah, i know
18:47<o_cee>skip forward did ff instead :)
18:48<thor_>yeah, noticed that
18:48<thor_>soon be configurable in any case
18:48<o_cee>the jump stuff will be nice
18:51<o_cee>think i'll add that in the popup instead
18:51<jeffpc>what happened to the Debian package maintainer? why don't we have 0.12 as a .deb?
18:52<o_cee>he's got a life?
18:52<thor_>he's busy/moving/etc. (as I understand it)
18:52<o_cee>think i'll skip the seconds..

22:06<Chutt>any reason that wouldn't work? :p

22:09<thor_>hmmm ... was going to fix .... cvs is a bit on again off again tonight (?)
22:10<Chutt>the machine's got a fairly high load right now
22:10<Chutt>up over 75 =)
22:10<thor_>that still a cellery ?
22:10<Chutt>87 now
22:10<Chutt>heh, now
22:11<Chutt>well, it is
22:11<Chutt>not a 500, anymore, at least
22:11<Chutt>it's a 1.7ghz celery
22:12<thor_>anyway, I'll fix it as soon as I get a password prompt :-(
22:12<Chutt>sure, cool =)
22:13<thor_>grrr .... everybody stop using cvs now !
22:24<cmorgan>is debian lacking a version of xmltv that works with current zap2it?
22:24<Teflon>omorgan: yep afaik, just download the source, perl Makefile.PL; make install and it'll fix itself until the next deb is out.
22:25<Teflon>(and upgrade any other perl modules needed)
22:25<cmorgan>Teflon: k, i'll fetch the source.... what a pain ;-)
22:28<cmorgan>Teflon: you grab cvs or some later version of source?
22:28<thor_>it's in incoming on Debian
22:28<cmorgan>thor_: can i force its install in unstable somehow?
22:28<Chutt>grab the deb manually.

22:29<cmorgan>any more info? never done that before ;-)
22:30<cmorgan>thanks ;-)
22:31<term>xmltv released again?
22:34<cmorgan>maybe i should just add incoming as a package source? ;-)

22:57<mattfelsen>i accidentally hit x while watching a recording, and now myth starts transcoding, aborts it due to some cutlist error (maybe it not existing), and repeats
22:58<mattfelsen>is there a way to stop it?
