00:58<DogBoy>what keys set cutlist marks?
00:59<billytwowilly>atleast one 0.12 that I'm running. you have to be in edit mode though.
01:00<billytwowilly>it should pop up a window.
01:00<billytwowilly>delete before, delete after, etc.
01:00<billytwowilly>you can also hit "z" to import the commercial cuts.
01:03-!-WkdLester [] has joined #mythtv
01:05<WkdLester>Hi all, I have come to pick your brains =).... I have just installed mythtv, and when I watch live tv or record, the video is a bit messed up.. It looks like the vertical hold is off, I get part of the top of the picture on ...
01:05<WkdLester>the bottom.... anyone heard of this before? (XawTV works fine)
01:05<billytwowilly>never heard of that before.
01:05<WkdLester>it's really strange
01:05<billytwowilly>did you search the mailing list?
01:06<Netslayer>what country u in
01:06<WkdLester>not really sure what keywords to use though
01:06<WkdLester>I'm in canada
01:06<Netslayer>ok shouldn't have a prob
01:06<WkdLester>I use NTSC, us-cable
01:06<billytwowilly>what part of Canada?
01:06<Netslayer>might need to fine tune your tuner settings
01:06<Netslayer>oh here we go
01:06<billytwowilly>I'm in Edmonton, Alberta
01:06<Netslayer>i'm from wpg
01:06<WkdLester>cool, Brandon her
01:06<billytwowilly>what card are you using?
01:07<WkdLester>Leadtek winfast 2000 xp
01:07<WkdLester>I have built mythtv with this card before, and I didn't have to do anything too weird to make it work. Then my hd died, so I'm rebuilding it
01:07<billytwowilly>Is that a bttc card?
01:07<billytwowilly>er. bttv
01:08<WkdLester>I"m using bttv version 0.7.96 on debian unstable
01:08<billytwowilly>you should search google for what to put in modules.conf
01:08<billytwowilly>I had to put some stuff in there to get the card properly identified before the card worked properly.
01:08<WkdLester>hm... but if something was wrong in modules.conf, wouldn't that affect Xawtv too?
01:08<Netslayer>u might want to post on the list
01:09<WkdLester>I posted to the list earlier today
01:09<billytwowilly>hmm. yah it should mess up xawtv too.
01:09<Netslayer>ur using the tuner right
01:09<WkdLester>yeah... card=34 tuner=2
01:09<Netslayer>i believe u can finetune your settings.. that could be it
01:10<WkdLester>Well I noticed with mythweb, you can enter numbers to finetune each channel, but I've played with it a bit and it doesn't seem to help.
01:12<WkdLester>When I try to fine tune the channels, they either get clearer or fuzzier, but it is still messed up vertically
01:12<billytwowilly>have you tried messing with the overscan settings?
01:13<WkdLester>no, where would I do that?
01:13<billytwowilly>in the tv setup I think.
01:13<billytwowilly>perhaps in the backend setup program.
01:13<billytwowilly>but the channles are fuzzy as well?
01:13<WkdLester>hm I'll give that a try
01:13<WkdLester>no, the channels are clear
01:13-!-dopez [] has joined #mythtv
01:13<WkdLester>unless I mess with the fine tuning
01:13<billytwowilly>ok, you might want to try the overscan then..
01:14<WkdLester>ok I'm gonna try that.

01:38<WkdLester>Hey just out of curiosity, what kernel version are you guys using?
01:51<WkdLester>k.. I'm using 2.4.20
01:52<billytwowilly>DogBoy: Did you import the cutlist first?
01:52<DogBoy>what's that
01:55<billytwowilly>did you go into edit mode while watching the recording and import the commercial cutlist and/or make your own?
01:56<DogBoy>no commercials on this one
01:56<DogBoy>I made my own
01:56<billytwowilly>ok.. I don't know then. sorry.
01:59<WkdLester>Anyone have a favorite linux dist for installing mythtv on?
02:00<dopez>WkdLester: just use a dist what you know/are comfortable with
02:00<WkdLester>yeah, that's why I chose debian... I've used it the most out of all of them...
02:01-!-travail101 [] has joined #mythtv
02:01<dopez>im using debian sarge for my backend, sid for the frontend , works just fine
02:01<WkdLester>what's your tv card?
02:02<dopez>2 pvr250's
02:02<travail101>hey how do i get MythMusic tables in my database
02:02<WkdLester>I'm using sid for both frontend and backend (2 machines)
02:02<WkdLester>dunno travail, haven't got that far yet... lol
02:03<travail101>oh well... thnx anyway
02:03<WkdLester>I would assume that it does it automagically when you install mythmusic
02:04<travail101>well then i migh be having MySQL authentication problems...
02:04<travail101>i was having trouble with MySQL passwords
02:05<WkdLester>that's probably it... I've installed Mythmusic once before, a few months ago, and I don't remember having to do anything to put the tables in there
02:05<travail101>would you know how to get it to not need a password and stuff?
02:06<Chutt>most default installations of mysql don't set up a password without prompting you to enter one.
02:06<Chutt>so if there is a password set, you're the one that set it
02:06<travail101>yea... but now i want to unset it
02:06-!-poo [] has quit [Remote closed the connection]
02:06<travail101>i thought i had to set one
02:07<Chutt>you can, or you can't, it doesn't really matter.
02:07<travail101>well, how do i get MythMusic tables in my Database?
02:07<Chutt>you follow the instructions in the documentation on the website?
02:07<travail101>i looked thru it, but there's a lot of documentaion
02:08<travail101>i looked under MythMusic
02:15<WkdLester>I agree
02:16<tmk>chutt: is there a way to index a .nuv without commflag?
02:16<travail101>so no one can help me?
02:16<dopez>if the backend exist without a segfault, and message or error would gdb be any use to figure out what happend?
02:17<tmk>dopez: only if you put a break at the error
02:17<Chutt>tmk, not really
02:17<tmk>can i modify it to just index and not flag? any tips there?
02:17<dopez>there wasnt any error, it just drops to the shell without any message
02:17<tmk>dopez: have you tried with -v all?
02:17<Chutt>tmk, probably, but i wouldn't know where to look
02:17<tmk>someone else wrote it eh
02:18<Chutt>travail101, read the docs, every single thing you need to do is in there.
02:18<dopez>tmk, not yet, i'll give that a try
02:18-!-travail101 [] has left #mythtv ["Leaving"]
02:19<tmk>"i looked thru it, but there's a lot of documentaion"
02:19<tmk>that's great
02:20<WkdLester>can you just come to my house and do it for me? --- is what he meant
02:20<tmk>for the record. avidemux is very nice. kudos to the authors
02:20-!-Bonkers [] has joined #mythtv
02:21<dopez>avidemux is what virtualdub is for windows if i may say so..
02:21<Bonkers>is there any easy way to force myth to think that you don't have xv support so it will fall back on the non-xv stuff?
02:21<tmk>perhaps in
02:21<Chutt>export NO_XV=1
02:21<tmk>or that
02:21<Bonkers>easy as in not modifying the source and recompiling
02:21<Bonkers>I'll try that one
02:22<thor_>some reason you want to force non-Xv on a system that has it ?
02:22<tmk>i have an aversion to x's next to v's
02:22<Bonkers>helping someone debug their system, xawtv only works in grabdisplay mode with the -noxv option
02:22<Bonkers>no idea what xv has to do with capture modes though
02:22<thor_>screenshot ?
02:23<Chutt>if their graphics card doesn't do xv, don't even bother trying to get things running.
02:23<Bonkers>it's a geforce2
02:23<Bonkers>certainly does xv
02:23<Chutt>xvinfo says...?
02:23<Bonkers>lots of stuff
02:23<Chutt>then it should work fine
02:24<Bonkers>ya, must be some other problem
02:25<thor_>Chutt, you want me to wander through the post-keybindings stuff in mythmusic and make the defaults closer than they were before ?
02:25<Chutt>naw, i changed em on purpose :p
02:25<Chutt>to better fit in with the tv playback keybindings
02:25<thor_>had to bite the bullet at some point
02:26<thor_>but we're going to get FAQ'd
02:26<Chutt>yeah, but it's all in mythweb now
02:27<thor_>new complaints about <?> versus <?php> and "Where do I download mythapache?"
02:29<WkdLester>why, of course ;)
02:30<thor_>mfd is moving along nicely ...
02:30<thor_>multi-threaded http server is more or less done
02:30<thor_>so daap serving will come back soon
02:30<thor_>and a lot of other serving mechanisms
02:30<thor_>it's actually looking very cool
02:32<Chutt>finally re-installing debian on my epia-m
02:33<thor_>I got the mfd (so mythlib) working on that slow thing the VIA contest people sent me on Sunday night
02:33<thor_>kinda cool
02:33<Chutt>it is my main production box :p
02:33<Chutt>fast enough with a pvr-350 in it
02:34<thor_>also, as a data point ....
02:35<thor_>I'm going to be out of the country again between dec. 12 and jan 2
02:35<Chutt>long time
02:35<Chutt>that's ok, i'm hopefully going to be spending a bunch of time finishing our basement
02:36<thor_>cat 5 ?
02:36<Chutt>framing and drywall :p
02:38<thor_>exterior wall/water issues/vapour barriers or just straight 2x4's and mud ?
02:38<Chutt>putting up a vapor barrier, but it's really quite dry down there
02:39<Chutt>i dunno
02:40<thor_>I may have the spelling very wrong (tuvek ?)
02:40<Chutt>haven't bought that yet :p
02:40<thor_>it's the stuff they do exterior wraps with now
02:40<thor_>and it's supposed to be really good
02:40<Chutt>just had stuff that's too big for my car delivered over the weekend
02:41<thor_>redid a whole kitchen 18 months ago .... anything that didn't fit in the car was 'nixed
02:41<thor_>(except appliances)
02:42<thor_>hard work ... but good when it's done :-)
02:42<WkdLester>much like mythtv, huh?
02:43<thor_>on the contrary
02:43<thor_>myth will never be done
02:43<WkdLester>ok true
02:43<WkdLester>I was more referring to building a mythtv box
02:44<thor_>nice to get it working, yup
02:44<dopez>myth might never be done, but it will allways be cool :)
02:44<WkdLester>hard work for newbs like me ;)
02:46<WkdLester>I noticed some dude is building mythtv boxes and selling them on eBay. I wonder what he is gonna do when XMLTV breaks again
02:46<thor_>caveat emptor
02:46<dopez>WkdLester: run fan away with his money :)
02:47<DogBoy>is it possible to set it up where a newer version of xmltv gets installed automatically when it breaks?
02:48<thor_>you just need about 1/4 of a million in venture funding and a "mythsubscriber" user base of customers
02:49<thor_>(or some very very clever Perl)
02:49<Chutt>or just an update process running in cron.
02:49<WkdLester>I suppose in theory you could just release a patch for it
02:49<DogBoy>guess it would depend on how much they changed it
02:50<thor_>question of return values
02:55<thor_>speaking of listings, does anyone (Chutt?) know where snapstream gets their feeds, and has anyone talked to them about a rebranding just their listing service under an OEM-ish deal?
02:57<thor_>and where is zap2it on a person-by-person xml-ish listing feed (you talking to them?) ?
02:57<Chutt>i get occasional updates about that
02:57<Chutt>no launch date, as far as i'm aware
02:57<thor_>they were right on the verge of something like a $4/month thing iirc ?
02:58<Chutt>no idea anymore
03:00<thor_>nice to tie the "Chutt the benevolent" dvd database and reccomendation engine to an actual listing resource ... user might as well get their money's worth
03:01-!-sfr [] has joined #mythtv
03:03<sfr>Chutt: still awake? the mjepg sample file is at have patience as it's only 128kBit upstream
03:04<Chutt>i'll just download it overnight
03:05<sfr>this is a known good recording which is distorted when played back with mythtv
03:07<sfr>btw, my pc's ip will change in about 4 hours
03:07<Chutt>current eta is 34 minutes
03:08<billytwowilly>anyone remember the link to that web based mysql driven dvd database program of the top of their head?
03:08<sfr>ok, i'm off to work
03:08-!-sfr [] has quit ["Client exiting"]
03:08<Chutt>sfr, thanks
03:10<billytwowilly>mydvds. Thanks freshmeat.
03:13<thor_>Chutt, on the thread pool stuff ... in the context of the mfd, I'm currently (non-CVS) creating a new thread whenever a connect discovers that the pool is exhausted .... and then have a long term check about the last time the pool was fully utilized to see if we should destroy one .... anything clearly stupid about that?
03:14<Chutt>put in an upper limit if you don't have one

03:21<billytwowilly>err. register
03:23<thor_>billytwowilly, got the e-mail, thanks
03:24<billytwowilly>If you decide to send some work their way let me know so I can work the kickback angle here at home;)
03:24<thor_>won't be able to deal with this until January, but could well be very helpful
03:24* billytwowilly wants a new myth box;)
03:25<billytwowilly>I hope it's helpful.
03:25<thor_>well ....
03:26<billytwowilly>I'm only joking about the kickback thing;)
03:26<thor_>accountants are constrained by the existence of government
03:26<billytwowilly>heh. if there was no government there would be no accountants.
03:26<billytwowilly>err. were.

03:29* thor_ ponders Oedipus ... but is too tired to get into it
03:29<billytwowilly>Heh, this guy has been advertising total annihilation on for about a month now. He started at 5 dollars and is now at 2.75. I think I'll pick it up when he reaches one dollar in three months;)
03:30<billytwowilly>Oedipus... greek who slept with his mother?
03:30<thor_>and gouged out his eyes
03:30<billytwowilly>ahh. That was in a play correct? I think I read that a long long time ago.
03:31<billytwowilly>Unfortunately I have no recollection of the event in question...
03:31<thor_>... in a galaxy far far away ...
03:31<dopez> ... someone got really drunk ...
03:32<billytwowilly>heh. That is supposed to remind me of star wars, however it only reminds me of hardware wars;)

03:38<billytwowilly>I want to see your freudian epic comedy;)

16:51kvandivo>do you have the conflict screen set to 'show all' or 'show important' ?

17:18steelep>I want to make playlists work with a sql query instead of a list of tracks, it should be fairly simple really.
17:18thor_>autogenerate something like "all 1960's songs" ?
17:18steelep>just return a list from the query and everything else would be the same
17:19steelep>more like "where genre not like 'christmas'" :)
17:19thor_>I would do it against metadata in memory rather than touching the database directly
17:19thor_>the problem is not the logic
17:19steelep>I don't know squat about doing the UI part though
17:19thor_>it's doing an interface :-)
17:20_rkulagow>thor: that's what happens when you have a multiple myth household. wait til mother-in-law comes by and wants to record "JAG"
17:20_rkulagow>don't worry, i have the geek standbye's like futurama, adult swim, simpsons, etc.
17:20steelep>just dumping the where clause in the playlist is simple and runing a query if it finds non digits and comma
17:21thor_>_rkulagow, if it gets too many conflicting choices it will probably start to pout
17:21steelep>for now, i'd settle for it not having a UI but parse the where clause if it finds one
17:21_rkulagow>now i need to convince the wife that i need an xbox (dell home has them for $167 now, no tax, free shipping) to make it a cheap frontend.
17:22Chutt>steelep, not a good idea to embed database queries in the database
17:22steelep>that is a rediculously cheap frontend
17:22thor_>steelep, touching the database is a pain
17:22steelep>but i'm a database guy as you all know :)
17:22thor_>everythings already sitting there in memory
17:23steelep>the whole recordset is NOT in memory
17:23thor_>all the metadata
17:23steelep>you mean for the playlist?
17:23thor_>_all_ the metadata
17:23steelep>your kidding
17:23steelep>no wonder I have problems
17:24steelep>I have 40K files
17:24steelep>I better go get more ram
17:24steelep>it seems kinda odd to do that
17:25steelep>but every player does it and I crash ALL of them
17:25thor_>imagine 40K of sql queries every time you touched Play Music
17:25steelep>I wrote my own finally
17:25steelep>but ffs it takes 3 minutes to start playing already
17:26thor_>you have a standalone player that works well ?
17:26steelep>a query would make it faster I think
17:26steelep>I wrote a sql based windows library that works fairly well
17:26thor_>slap a DAAP interface on it
17:27steelep>at least the library doesn't crash everytime the player opens
17:27thor_>and it will play through myth soon
17:27thor_>(and through iTunes)
17:27steelep>mine is very similar
17:27steelep>but has more iTunes features
17:28steelep>I crash iTunes
17:28steelep>that xml database is too big
17:28steelep>same with winamp
17:30steelep>there is no reason to load all the metadata, loading it per play is all you really need unless you are doing searches
17:30steelep>when the track starts playing you can parse the tags on the fly
17:30thor_>see ShowWholeTree()
17:30steelep>that is completely useless to me
17:31steelep>with 20K songs it's impossible to use effectively
17:31thor_>but not to lots of other people :-)
17:31steelep>lots of people have 10k songs
17:31thor_>I'm serious about the DAAP thing though
17:31steelep>I don't see how they can use it either
17:32thor_>but a DAAP interface on your player and have it serve out the playlists
17:32thor_>edit to your hearts content on your desktop
17:32steelep>if DAAP was sql based fine, but XML based is going to die at 10K songs
17:32thor_>play from your mythbox
17:32steelep>I do xml and sql for a living
17:32thor_>you have playlists with 10K songs in them ?
17:33steelep>no, but that's sort of the point
17:33Chutt>assuming 1k of metadata per track (which is _way_ more than what it'd actually be), 10k songs is only 10MB.
17:33Chutt>that's absolutely nothing :p
17:34steelep>then why the hell does my library crash every single library app that tries to use it except myth and Musik (and mine)
17:35steelep>every one uses like 50M+ of ram at least
17:35steelep>which is fine, but I saw iTunes using 160M once
17:35Chutt>i've not written those other library apps, so i couldn't tell you
17:35steelep>then is died
17:35thor_>#define MAX_SONGS 32000
17:36steelep>that's per playlist though right?
17:36thor_>I'm kidding
17:36steelep>anyway I don't have 32K loaded, more like 20K
17:37steelep>but it's strange, I can point it at another backup that has 9K and it all works fine, it and exact copy
17:37steelep>except it's a partial of critical files
17:38steelep>unless there is some totally borked file in that main library I can't imagine what is causing the trouble except the number of files
17:40thor_>add them one at a time until it pukes ?
17:41thor_>shouldn't take more than a week :-)

17:59Chutt>can't be checked for correctness
18:00=schultmc [] quit ("Client exiting")
18:00steelep>that way you change nothing ni the db except the data, it's either a where clause, or a list of files
18:01steelep>a where clause is sort of harmless if it's wrong
18:01steelep>you could put out of range data in the playlist and it would be just as bad
18:02steelep>I meant store where blah blah, and check for existence of the string "where" when you load the playlist, not put the whole select in there
18:03steelep>I think this could be accomplished with about 3 maybe 4 lines of code
18:04steelep>making a UI to build the where clauses, that's a different story, but they would be responsible for checking the validity
18:11thor_>you already have a UI to make any playlist you like:
18:11steelep>that dosn't work in mythmusic though

18:12steelep>not qt
18:13steelep>ok, i'll see what I can do if no one has been thinking of doing this already then

18:14thor_>in the longer term, do DAAP
