00:00Toothpick>when I go through to the watch tv it just a blank black screen.
00:00*josephk is away: I'm actually away...I don't believe me either
00:01Chutt>the backend?
00:02Toothpick>how do I know what /dev/video to use?
00:02Chutt>it's assumed that you're aware of the setup of your computer.
00:02Toothpick>well...tvtime works ;)
00:03Chutt>so use that and go away
00:04Chutt>unless you're going to look at the output of the backend like i asked?
00:05Toothpick>Chutt...I think I got it.
00:06Toothpick>The tuner is separate from the capture card.

00:06Toothpick>Error getting inputs for the capturecard. Perhaps you have
00:06Toothpick>forgotten to bind video sources to your card's inputs?
00:06Toothpick>TV is defined, but isn't attached to a cardinput.
00:06Toothpick>QServerSocket: failed to bind or listen to the socket
00:06Toothpick>Failed to bind port: 6543
00:06Toothpick>sorry for the flood.
00:06Chutt>wow, look at that
00:06Toothpick>I'll print some manuals tomorrow.
00:06Chutt>an error message
00:08Toothpick>Thanks for the help chutt...I am in the right direction now

00:22Netslayer>are we hrs or days away from .13?
00:24Chutt>whenever i decide to do it.
00:24Chutt>asking about it isn't going to make it sooner.
00:25Netslayer>heh just wondering
00:29Netslayer>when i have time, probably in the next few weeks i'm going to try to get a theme together. Do you suggest just copying the ui.xml and tweaking it all or starting from scratch?
00:29Chutt>that'd probably be easiest
00:30Netslayer>ya it looks really i'm not multilingual heh
00:37_rkulagow>chutt: i'm seeing another instance of the "recordings not showing up" thing i had mentioned earlier. this is after a complete-from-scratch database drop.
00:37Netslayer>i'm going to try to build 2 lcd panels also (along with my new myth network), should be interesting. Getting a great deal at:
00:38knight->i dont see how lcd panels are helpful
00:39knight->how often are you close enough to the server to even SEE the lcd
00:40Netslayer>my server is in my bedroom heh

00:40_rkulagow>Now, at 6PM I've got Battlestar Galactica programmed to record on Sci-Fi channel which should go from 6PM to 8:09PM. You can see that from 7PM onwards there are at least three programs that are supposed to start at 7PM (but only two tuners)
00:41_rkulagow>And Junkyard mega-wars is auto-supressed and will record a different showing. but Battlestar Galactica doesn't even show up in "Show Conflicts" to try to let me resolve the issue.
00:41Netslayer>wait i never thought about that.. should be fine i'll have the master backend put out the port and connect to it through lcdproc from the network..should work right?
00:41Chutt>rkulagow, think you can do the sql query manually?
00:42_rkulagow>i believe so, but if it gets funky with joins and stuff i'm out of my league.
00:42Chutt>it's a big query
00:42Chutt>so it's going to be a pain in the ass
00:43_rkulagow>is it somewhere in the code so i can cut and paste, or were you going to p
00:43Chutt>starting at line 268
00:43_rkulagow>ok, nevermind. let me check. brb.
00:43Chutt>there's 4 places to substitue in numbers for %1, %2, %3, and %4
00:43Chutt>as well
00:44Chutt>%1 = 4, %2 = 3, %3 = 2, %4 = 1. backwards =)
00:44_rkulagow>YOW! i'm looking at the section now...
00:45Chutt>like i said, it's a big query =)
00:46_rkulagow>TIME_TO_SEC and DAYOFWEEK are internal mysql things?
00:47*Ripp is away: Zzzz
00:48Chutt>you just need to replace the stuff like '((record.type = %1)' later on
00:48Chutt>that one would be ((record.type = 4)
00:48_rkulagow>OK, right, got that part.
00:49Chutt>other than that, just a bunch of cutting and pasting
00:50mdz>might be worth dumping the raw query results at a certain debug level
00:50mdz>doing that query by hand sucks
00:51_rkulagow>50% done...
00:56_rkulagow>ok, 257 rows in the set.
00:58_rkulagow>and the program _is_ in that list. conveniently, it's right near the bottom of the results.
00:58_rkulagow>(battlestar galactica starting at 6PM on sunday)
00:58Chutt>only other thing to do is step through the code
00:59_rkulagow>ok, let me know when you're done.
00:59Chutt>by adding some PrintLists()
00:59Chutt>in the Scheduler::FillRecordLists() function
01:00Chutt>see where the program disappears
01:00Chutt>and repeat until it's obvious _why_ it disappears
01:00mechou>_rkulagow:damn, you record a lot of stuff. you got time to watch them all :)?
01:01_rkulagow>we're a multi-myth household with varies interests. "the nanny" just doesn't float my boat, although charles shaughnessey "mr. sheffield" was pretty good in "urinetown".
01:04_rkulagow>chutt: looks like starting around line 208 of scheduler.cpp is where the PrintLists should start?
01:05Chutt>rkulagow, you got it
01:08_rkulagow>ok, i'm recompiling now, but i've got to go to bed. i'll see what i can discover in the morning.
01:23mechou>Is there any significance to the sourceid (i.e. 1000) in videosource db? Between moving and cable lineup changes I'm in the 6000's now. Can I just change this back to 1000 manually?
01:23Chutt>it's just an internal id
01:23Chutt>as long as it's consistant everywhere, doesn't really matter what it is
01:24mechou>it gets autoincremented whenever you run setup with clear channel option?
01:25Netslayer>odd i have qt emerged, but no qmake
01:25mikegrb>perhaps not in your path?
01:28Netslayer>yur right
01:28mikegrb>sometimes I am
01:29mikegrb>please tell my wife
01:30Netslayer>how would i go about adding it to my path? export PATH=$PATH:/....
01:31mikegrb>or add it to the PATH= line in /etc/profile

01:37mdz>_rkulagow: when something that's in that query gets removed from the list, usually the automatic conflict resolution is at fault
01:38mdz>or, it was the last time I looked over that code. I assume it has changed since then with overrides and all that
01:38Chutt>mdz, yeah, but it's been changed a bit now -- shouldn't be completely removed anymore
01:38mdz>Chutt: it won't remove things ever? that's good
01:38Chutt>well, from the list

09:59fathom>i'm using a really non-standard distro so i'm sure that's causing me so problems, but i've managed to get this far...

10:56o_cee>hiya rkulagow, you did the status page inside mythfrontend right?
10:57rkulagow>the very first version, yes. others have made it super-cool and pretty.
10:58o_cee>that'd be me, but i mean the one inside mythfrontend
10:59o_cee>"System status"
10:59ananke>what would be an easy way to disable the tv option/menu from the main menu? [i'm interested in using mythtv only with the other modules at first]
10:59o_cee>look at theme.xml
10:59rkulagow>oh, that one. yes, i did. good job, btw, on your backend one.
11:00rkulagow>i thought you meant the backend one, because i added the system status stuff to the port 6544 one first.
11:00rkulagow>and then thought, "hey, that
11:00o_cee>i just glanced at that statuspage, but it seems as if the code is the same as the backend page, right?
11:00rkulagow>s an easy one for the frontend too."
11:01rkulagow>yes, 99% should be the same, other than some wording changes maybe.
11:01o_cee>have you tried it without any guide data?
11:01o_cee>i added checks to that on the backend
11:01o_cee>might want to fix that before .13
11:01o_cee>as i guess it'll be the same problem

11:02*o_cee is away: phone
11:03rkulagow>i haven't checked; there's still some stuff that i think might not be fully handled, like what happens if xmltv doesn't actually add any data to the database, but still runs, like when zap2it changes its website. i might think about doing a check: "before: how many days of data. after: how many days of data? did we actually add anything to the database?
11:03*o_cee is back (gone 00:00:34)
11:03o_cee>would be good as well
11:04o_cee>but if you have time, take a look at how it's done in the backend now
11:04o_cee>for the missing guide data thing
11:04rkulagow>yep, but at this point i don't have the cycles. (mr. mom). if you're feeling froggy have at it, otherwise it'll have to wait until i have a chance to look at it.
11:04rkulagow>or someone else does it.
11:05o_cee>okay, i'll see if i can find some time
11:05o_cee>not that important, guess most people actually have guidedata;)
11:06rkulagow>what does happen? does it barf totally, or just give wacky results?

11:07o_cee>it passes null to the daysTo
11:12ananke>i know this question has been probably asked tons of times, but here it goes: what would you guys recommend as a fairly cheap yet workable tv tuner card? prefferably one availabe in states.

11:39jbeimler>ananke: I'd get one of the ones with built in mpeg, takes the load off

11:48ananke>jbeimler : thank you for the hint
11:49jbeimler>ananke: no problem, its the most expensive solution though
11:49ananke>jbeimler : out of curiosity: are those tv tuner cards usually agp or pci? it may sound silly, but i don't have any experience with those
11:49kvandivo>just follow the docs. they mention a few that don't work. just do a bit of research on the one you are thinking about and you should be ok.
11:50jbeimler>unless there is a magic all in one card out there..
11:50+E1ven [] joined #mythtv
11:50ananke>kvandivo : yeah, i figured that. what i was thinking is printing out the list of supported cards from the kernel documentation, and taking it to the store to see what's available. then checking for detailed support
11:51E1ven>Is there anyone commercially selling machines running MythTV? Maybe a small shuttle, with a IR remote?
11:51E1ven>I'd love to grab a machine, but I don't really want to build a dual-tuner machine at the moment.
11:51jbeimler>ananke: Circuit City has the Pinnicle cards, I got the stereo one w/ the remote last night.
11:51kvandivo>a google search for 'selling mythtv' returns quite a few hits
11:51ananke>yeah, unfortunatelly closest circuit city is an hour away
11:52ananke>how important is to have a tv tuner card with a remote? doesn't the mythtv perform channel changing?
11:52jbeimler>ananke: our local computer shop usually has the ATI cheapie card, but it was out of stock.
11:52kvandivo>the remote is used to control mythtv
11:52kvandivo>whether that remote comes with the tuner or not is up to you
11:52jbeimler>ananke: its a PITA to use the keyboard, myth is obviously set up for a remote
11:53ananke>kvandivo : i see. what i was going to do is to build an infrared receiver, hook it up to via lirc, and use my main remote controller
11:53E1ven>I looked at Google, but I couldn't find anyone actually SELLING it.
11:53kvandivo>ananke: many people do that
11:53ananke>i already got the parts, i'll be making the circuit tonight
11:54ananke>kvandivo : thanks. what i was trying to figure out is if i use my other remote - if the tv tuner remote would be useful for anything else besides taking up space :)
11:54kvandivo>note: just because the linux kernel supports a tuner card doesn't definitively mean that mythtv will.
11:54ananke>kvandivo : that was my major concern
11:54kvandivo>the most popular choice from reading the mail lists is probably a pvr250 or 350
11:55kvandivo>they have the hardware encoding, stereo, etc
11:55jbeimler>ananke: ATI TV Wonder VE - TV Tuner Card is the cheap one I've seen, around 50$US
12:02jbeimler>on the sound issues, would dropping a second sound card in for recording be of help?
12:02kvandivo>depending on your tuner card, a sound card is often required
12:02o_cee>for playback
12:03*o_cee is away: Gone
12:03jbeimler>already have one for playback, thinking of adding a second one for just the plug of the tuner
12:05fathom>jbeimler, that's the card i have that ATI TV VE
12:05fathom>it was cheap, and i was just wanting to check this out
12:05fathom>didn't want to drop $200 on a card
12:06jbeimler>I'm trying a pinnacle PCTV pro for a demo tommorow night, but can't get it to work, I may fall back to the ati
12:06=E1ven [] quit ("And so he faded into the darkness")
12:06fathom>i read up on the pinnacle, i didn't like it
12:06fathom>figured the ati would work and it was about $20 cheaper
12:06Kreat>was thinking of getting a dvb-t card like the nova-t, any hope of getting it cooperating nicely with mythtv?
12:06jbeimler>fathom: it just blows ?
12:07jbeimler>didn't have much time to read up, figured stereo might make a better demo
12:07fathom>nah, there was something about the card itself i didn't like.. not sure what, but hey if it works for you that's all that matters.
12:08jbeimler>no it doesn't work. gettin tired of messing with it, may just go buy another ATI
12:09jbeimler>I might just be spoiled though, my first install took a couple hours and worked first try.
12:11fathom>lol i'm on day 3 of my install
12:11fathom>but i'm using a funky distro so i'm having to fix a lot of little problems along the way
12:12kvandivo>i had a heck of a time myself. it consisted of 'emerge mythtv' and walking away for an hour or so. :)
12:14ananke>here's what i have so far in the box: sblive with digital out, geforce4, and eventually i need a faster proc [only athlon 900mhz]. i was mainly building an mp3 jukebox, but since mythtv has all this functionality and more, i am wondering about trying out the pvr functionality
12:14ananke>fathom : what distro?
12:15ananke>what would be really nice, is the ability to record my digital cable channels...
12:15ananke>hmm, crux is/was based on slack. i use slack, and had no problems installing mythtv
12:16fathom>there was a lot of problems building xmltv
12:16ananke>did you compile all the pre-requisites?
12:16fathom>that's what the problem was
12:16fathom>some --center tag with man page crap you don't need
12:16fathom>Tk wouldn't compile and a few other things
12:16fathom>i had to hack up the make file
12:16ananke>perl -MCPAN -e'install whatever::whatever' :)
12:16fathom>yeah :P it would fail
12:17ananke>from what i understand, that tk module is optional
12:17fathom>i think the version of man i have is newer and removed that option or something
12:17fathom>lol lovely
12:17ananke>fathom : try forcing it. in lots of cases it works.
12:17fathom>i fought with that for about a day
12:17ananke>force install whatever::whatever instead of install whatever::whatever
12:17fathom>nah that switch would cause the compile to just flat out bomb
12:17fathom>even a force wouldn't do it, i tried that
12:17fathom>but i'm past all that now :P
12:18ananke>that will teach you to use funky distros :)
12:18sfr>fathom: doesn't sound like a recommendable distro then. but let's not start a distro-flamewar
12:18fathom>hey i like my distro :)
12:18fathom>sfr, oh i wouldn't reccomend this distro to anyone that's not very linux savvy
12:18fathom>and even if you are
12:18fathom>unless you're pretty much a slackware user, i'd avoid it.
12:19fathom>i hate rpm
12:19ananke>so let me get it straight: you get need to know slackware in order to use crux, yet you get less than slackware offers? :)
12:19fathom>not big on apt-get, etc, so this is what i use, but i don't try to force it on anyone and it's not better than anything else, it's just my personal pref.
12:20fathom>ananke, eh, it has this package building system somewhat like gentoo
12:20fathom>and it's a very very small distro
12:20fathom>but enough about all that :P
12:20sfr>i never understood why someone wants to compile everything from source. it can't be the improved speed
12:21ananke>sfr : here's a funny summary of gentoo zealots, somebody showed it to me last night. i think it's pretty amusing
12:21fathom>i don't know... there's something about this.. i moved to crux from doing a linux from scratch setup
12:21sfr>must be in those peoples genes :)
12:21*ananke takes the distro wars/flames very lightly by the way, gotta have some humor
12:22fathom>i agree ananke
12:22fathom>i don't give a flip what people use... if i'm not in windows i'm happy.
12:24fathom>hmmm i don't have alsa set up, i'm going to try this without it first.
12:24ananke>you know, slackware uses alsa :)
12:25fathom>so does crux :P
12:25fathom>i just don't have it installed, i don't typically use alsa
12:25fathom>esound works fine for me most of the time
12:25fathom>i've still got a long way to go before this is working though from what i can tell
12:26ananke>esound would be something in a different ball park than alsa
12:26fathom>i guess i'm not 100% what the diff is
12:26fathom>hmm guess i can skip the remote part, don't have one.
12:26ananke>alsa's counterpart is another driver technology, such as oss. esd's counterpart would be another sound server, such as arts.
12:27fathom>so your suggestion would be to install alsa then i guess?
12:28ananke>use what you prefer. i just recently switched over to alsa, seeing how oss is being phased out.
12:28fathom>fair enough, guess i should get to know alsa then.

16:53o_cee>thor_: thought about changing the 1,2,3,4 buttons now since they're changeable (or if they aren't yet, easily fixed).. to something that doesn't take that much space
16:53o_cee>yeah, just have to figure out how it should look like first
16:54o_cee>and i'm missing ff/rw buttons..
16:54o_cee>got cool looking ones for the rest
16:55thor_>you need three for each (but I guess you know that already)
16:55Chutt>o_cee, change the layout =)
16:55Chutt>i've been wanting a bigger current info area
16:55o_cee>yeah, me too
16:55Chutt>and shaded, not opaque
16:55Chutt>but i've been too lazy
16:55o_cee>and i'll probably make those 4 bbutons alot smaller
16:55o_cee>group them together orsomething
16:56thor_>and don't forget you need space for the disappearing volume display
16:57o_cee>right, that sucker as well
16:57o_cee>don't use it
16:57o_cee>will try to remember ;)

17:02Netslayer>just trying out mythlcd, how can i get it to display backend status, anyone know?
17:03jbeimler>Netslayer: /var/log/mythtv ?
17:04dhsidi92>does via make a hardware decoder on their motherboard?
17:04Netslayer>nah i mean when it is recording, it can output it's status on the lcd
17:04Netslayer>someone on the list says: "add the following
17:04Netslayer>into the settings table:
17:04Netslayer>LCDHost some_ip_or_localhost name_of_your_myth_box
17:04downix>dhci: Only on the newest C3's I believe, and it's not that good
17:05Netslayer>which settings table are they reffering too? mythtv's sql?
17:05thor_>Netslayer, you don't need that if you're using CVS, and it's the frontend that talks to LCDproc
17:06Netslayer>i noticed that, i have it showing me the menus as i go through them, but i don't see any tv show status
17:06downix>Someone needs to make a PVR-centric distro, that automates all this stuff

17:11thor_>Netslayer, that was a long time ago, and was progress from the frontend of how much of a program you've seen
17:11pahli_bar>thor_: lol. nothing of that sort. i was wondering if its going to integrated into main myth and if it might address some of the things which i plan to do
17:11thor_>ok, then that's me
17:11Netslayer>the only reason i kinda want an lcd is to see if the backend is recording and if so what it is, that's what that screenshot was showing
17:12pahli_bar>thor_: so is it going to be integrated into myth (and any timeline for doing that?)
17:12kvandivo>nice to see that mythtv is mentioned "about once a year" on /.
17:12sfr>Netslayer: you just hurt o_cee you know? goto http://your_backend:6544 and be happy
17:13thor_>yes, but 1-2 months still left to do
17:13Netslayer>i use that now also heh, but that requires another computer to be on
17:13pahli_bar>thor_: ok.
17:14pahli_bar>thor_: i am curious to know if a hardware-abstraction-layer could be built into it so that plugins can receive hardware-events
17:14thor_>hw as in /

17:17=Drikus [] quit ("toedeledoki")
17:18thor_>pahli_bar, you'd have a USB watcher that would dynamically create a metadata collection whenever it saw new resources
17:18thor_>much like an optical drive watcher
17:18downix>Wait, I might have it
17:19pahli_bar>i would to see this kind of capability (no demands, just wishlists): a device is plugged in... plugin registered for that device gets a call... plugin prompts user on a OSD for request for action... plugin acts on the request
17:19pahli_bar>thor_: exactly. but this kind of functionality will have to be built into mfd or something similar.
17:19downix>mysql isn't allowing anyone to login locally
17:19thor_>but the metadata framework already supports swapping collections in and out
17:19thor_>and signals get propagated across the plugins
17:19downix>those addresses are the nameserver for my domain name, which is what it was trying to log into
17:20thor_>so they all know when resources have changed

17:20Netslayer>any ideas what this error on a frontend means: "QSocketDevice::writeBlock: Invalid socket"
17:21o_cee>downix: section 6.4?
17:21thor_>no, totally different ... mfd is headless ...
17:21thor_>the general idea is you can create a plugin that finds resources and "publishes" them to the mfd
17:22thor_>or you create a plugin that serves resources (e.g. DAAP)
17:22lmatter_lunchis now known as lmatter
17:23thor_>and because the serving plugins advertize themselves via zeroconfig/Rendezvous, every mfd automatically knows what's available at every other mfd
17:23pahli_bar>thor_: hmmm... i'm still a but confused. i will look through the code and come up with more intelligent questions
17:23thor_>so one little thin client (yet to be written!) can get anything on the network
17:24thor_>as I said, there's still _lots_ to be done ... but the best way to get a feeling for what's possible is to do a checkout from before I started screwing with the DAAP server and run it on the same network as something running iTunes
17:25thor_>or do a checkout in about 6 hours, when daap serving will be working again

21:24Netslayer>for sure
21:24Chutt>everything's going to be at least mono.
21:26rkulagow>ananke: unless you go out and do something purposefully bad, then any consumer-level tv card is going to at least allow you to have sound. yes, there are pro-level capture cards (osprey comes to mind) that don't have any audio on them, but then again, they don't have tuners either.
21:27thor_>so, this would be about the time when I commit in something stupid ...
21:27Netslayer>what is that script called for accessing the backend status through port 6544? i'm interesting in the db fields it accesses

21:30Netslayer>o_cee, what's the name of that file you were working on for the web based backend status?
21:30thor_>Netslayer, no script, just point a browser at it
21:31Netslayer>nah i want to look at the code, i'm thinking about writing my own myth status for an LCD, and want to know which db fields it accesses for backend status
21:32Chutt>programs/mythbackend/mainserver.cpp, near the bottom.
21:32Netslayer>thank you
21:37Netslayer>i noticed some EPG screens in the setup dealing with shutdown and waking, can it do anything cool with a slavebackend?
21:38Netslayer>by that I mean shutdown when it's done recording, and/or set it to power up to record

21:42Netslayer>people sell em on ebay though
21:42thor_>one in Italy, and some mom & pop on ebay
21:42rkulagow>if you want a pre-built PVR, you can run sage tv.
21:42rkulagow>they used to sell a hardware/software setup, but that's windows.
21:44rkulagow>i had someone ask if i would put together a box for them for parts + labor, but they sort of backed off once they saw the price. i think he ended up with a Windows Media Center box.
21:44thor_>hmm Qt 3.3 beta
21:45Netslayer>media center pc's are pretty pricey
21:45Netslayer>gosh, i can build a whole system for a couple hundred.
21:46rkulagow>well, he also wanted to program it, and felt that the media center SDK was better docs than what was available in the source code for mythtv. whatever.
21:47warlord>please dont upgrade Qt yet...
21:47warlord>3.1 is "good enough" ;)
21:47Chutt>i dunno

22:05extremis>software cam for dvb cards
22:06extremis>for those of us in the US with a dishnet subscription

22:07extremis>thor_: I built an ir/blaster for my dishnet reciever, but5 I also have a dvb card
22:07Netslayer>so what's the problem
22:08extremis>thor_: software decryption of my dvb signal on my dvb-s card
22:08Netslayer>heh in the US, ya right
22:08extremis>there were a few people claiming they were working on it, but they disapeared
22:08extremis>Netslayer: I can do it with vdr or in windows, mythtv just lacks it
22:08Netslayer>i would love directv piped directly in.. won't happen
22:08Netslayer>'they disapeared' heh
22:09thor_>move to Europe ?
22:09extremis>Netslayer: stopped responding to email and stopped posting to the list
22:09Netslayer>= authorities
22:09extremis>thor_: nope, US... they likely figured it out but didn't want the liability of sharing
22:09*Netslayer nods
22:09extremis>well I pay for dishnet so I don't consider it illegal
22:09thor_>silly industry
22:10Netslayer>well i pay for directv, still isn't legal (like i care)
22:10extremis>I even worked with dishnet to get cam support
22:10extremis>I told them I would be willing to test one out, but they said they don't want people to have the ability to use other recievers
22:10Netslayer>so it pipes a digital signal to your dvb card?
22:10warlord>they dont want people to use other receivers??? why not?
22:10warlord>dont they want to sell service?
22:11extremis>warlord: its open in EU
22:11extremis>everyone uses dvb
22:11thor_>they don't want people pulling pure digital mpeg
22:11extremis>thor_: copyright
22:11warlord>extremis: yes, I know..
22:11extremis>anyways... softcam support is in vdr, I'm sure a port would be simple
22:11Netslayer>that would make life so much easier for capturing..just stream it to your hd
22:11extremis>I'm not a coder though
22:12thor_>start a pool
22:12extremis>I'll pay
22:12Netslayer>so u have a receiver that has an output for this? what's the output
22:12thor_>ask Dishnet users to contribute
22:12extremis>Netslayer: google
22:13thor_>pay somebody who can code with a free dish, decoder, and subscription
22:13thor_>then host the patch in Europe :-)
22:13extremis>thor_: I'll send you a dvb card if you get it working
22:13Netslayer>oh dish network
22:13thor_>my life is already too busy
22:13Chutt>hardware's worth less than the time it would take.
22:14thor_>well, throw in an HDTV as well
22:14ananke>hmm, i think i'm going crazy after looking at the diagram for the last 10 minutes: on my IR module i have: out, gnd, vcc. on the diagram there is data, +, -. how do they match up? [i think i'm starting to get confused, because of the pin numbers]
22:14Netslayer>are u telling me that in windows u can pipe a dish network signal to a dvb card?
22:15extremis>Netslayer: yes, and vdr in linux
22:15Chutt>if you use some illegal decryption software
22:15Netslayer>how would dish network go along with this?
22:15extremis>Chutt: screw legality, lets sstick to morality

22:15Netslayer>i didn't know they have cracked that
22:15rkulagow>chutt: ready for the first bug? i just pulled up the program grid in schedule recording, hit "r" and the status on the program i chose doesn't change to "Recording" in the upper right hand corner. also, the letter-in-a-circle doesn't appear either. a program that i had previously setup to record (south park) does have the letter-in-a-circle. this in with the visor theme (if it matters), and i'll check in blue in just a second. ok, doe
22:15Chutt>extremis, you're not the one distributing software.
22:15rkulagow>'t show up in blue either. it's recording though, and hitting "i" on the program shows "record only this showing".
22:16extremis>Chutt: if you coded it, I would
22:16Chutt>rkulagow, was it for something currently playing?
22:16rkulagow>it's for something that is in the current timeslot, yes.
22:16Chutt>yeah, that's a known bug
22:16Chutt>david engel's fault =)

22:16extremis>any fedora + mythtv setup guides yet?
22:16rkulagow>ah, ok.
22:17warlord>extremis: I presume it's going to be pretty close to using rh9
22:17Netslayer>so it won't show the icon if it's what in the 30 minute time slot it represents
22:17thor_>kvandivo, someone went on and on about commerical Spot Removal in here one day, and all I could picture was something plugged into a USB port that automatically cleaned your TV with Windex. Stupid, really.
22:17Netslayer>i hear fedora is terrible
22:17warlord>Netslayer: compared to what?
22:17kvandivo>ya, i remember, i was just giving you a hard time
22:18Chutt>it won't show the icon if it's a new single recording in the current timeslot.
22:18Netslayer>uh, just overhearing people talking about redhat and fedora
22:18Netslayer>current timeslot?
22:18warlord>Netslayer: my install of fedora (in vmware) went extremely smoothly
22:18Netslayer>u mean if u want to record something at 5:30 and it's 515
22:19Netslayer>vmware, interesting
22:20warlord>Chutt: so what did Engel do, exactly?
22:22Chutt>made the program guide reflect the scheduler more accurately
22:23jbeimler>got my box working. took a lot of monkeying around with alsa controls to get the sound in muted, but still output at a decent level. and I had to install the nvidia driver. otherwise, a pretty easy go
22:23warlord>and the scheduler ignores currently-recording programs?
22:23Chutt>the one problem with that is that the scheduler doesn't have a currently recording single-shot recording in the scheduler
22:23Chutt>as scheduled to be recorded
22:23Chutt>so the icon doesn't show up in the epg
22:23Chutt>minor thing, really

23:28thor_>(myth should not look like that) :-)
23:28kvandivo>ok.. ok... I'm on the case
23:28*mikegrb looks
23:28Netslayer>oh wow, thought that was compression
23:29billytwowilly>is there a place to add things to a wishlist for the next release?
23:29*Netslayer u wishing for a wish list?
23:29mikegrb>billytwowilly: mail a patch to the dev list
23:30Chutt>there is no wishlist
23:30*Netslayer needs two new names for his master server and remote family myth box
23:30Netslayer>something cool, nerdy and has nux in it
23:31billytwowilly>ok. I was just wondering how hard it would be to setup myth so that paired frontend/backends leave each other alone unless there is a recording conflict, then they query the other frontend/backend pair to see if there is recording space there.
23:31thor_>I think you want slider->setBackgroundOrigin(WindowOrigin)
23:31=Octane [] quit (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
23:31Netslayer>u mean work like they do now but have each slave backend try to work off of it's tuner first
23:32=mecraw [] quit (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
23:32Netslayer>i'm kinda wondering that too. the thought of me using my remotes tuner and the remote using my tuner over 54g scares me
23:32+mecraw [] joined #mythtv
23:33billytwowilly>Netslayer: Kind of.. I'll eventually have one backend machine that also has a frontend on it, one remote frontend machine (probably xbox) and my current computer operating as another backend. I would always want the xbox to use my maching and for the frontend on my current backend to always use the local backend.
23:33rkulagow>chutt: ok, another weirdness. got the two M179s operational. had two programs recording to use the two PVR-250s. masterbackend:6544 shows 4 encoders. went live, used the third encoder. scheduled something so that i could test the 4th encoder. third program doesn't show up in "watch recordings". this is on the console: Wed Dec 10 21:31:39 2003: wanted to record:
23:33rkulagow>Trista and Ryan's Wedding 1007 Wed Dec 10 20:00:00 2003
23:33rkulagow>But current state is: 4
23:33rkulagow>currently: Law & Order 1005 Wed Dec 10 21:00:00 2003 Wed Dec 10 22:00:00 2003
23:33billytwowilly>but I'd still like them to be able to set recordings and share recordings with each other.
23:33rkulagow>i'm going to check again though just to make sure it wasn't a thinko on my part.
23:34*Lenolium is building today's CVS and hoping his problems magically go away.
23:34=mecraw [] quit (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
23:35Netslayer>billytwowilly, ya like i described.. it works like that now.. just it does a roundrobin (from what the how tos show) from the first available tuner on the master, then it goes to the next slave backend
23:35rkulagow>(just to note, there are two backends, one with 2xPVR-250, one with 2xM179)
23:35mechou>ok, am I missing s/t basic? mythdvd module doesn't want to compile....
23:35rkulagow>ok, 6544 shows encoders 1 and 2 are busy, 3 and 4 (M179's on new backend are free)
23:35toothpick>Time to see if my tv out on my video card is always on.
23:36billytwowilly>Netslayer: hmm. I thought it would just use the first available backend, so the remote frontend could be using the main backend, then the frontend on the main backend tries to watch tv and it has to stream over the network from the other backend?
23:36Netslayer>it is usually
23:36toothpick>When I use tv time I can fine tune withi the arrows...what finetunes with myth?
23:37*Ripp is away: zZz
23:37Netslayer>billytwowilly: that's worth a look
23:37Netslayer>i haven't setup my network yet so.. not sure.. that's what it says
23:37*Netslayer will be here lots tomorrow
23:38mechou>anybody else having trouble getting mythdvd to compile?
23:38thor_>mechou, myth first, then modules (?)
23:38Netslayer>toothpick, u mean tuner?
23:38Netslayer>toothpick, i believe mythweb can now handle that under settings
23:38mechou>thor_: mythtv is compiled and installed
23:38toothpick>Netslayer...I want to put my tvout...from my graphics card to my actual tv
23:38thor_>ok .. what's the mythDVD error ?
23:38toothpick>with an svideo cable.
23:38Netslayer>toothpick, ya i have it the same way
23:39toothpick>I need to change my modules.conf file now though cause channels are off by one.
23:39mechou>thor_: so is mythvideo
23:39toothpick>and figure out the fine tuning...then I should be set.
23:39Netslayer>i think mythDVD needs a config file to test if players and stuff is installed
23:40Netslayer>i still haven't figured out how to get a dvd to play in nux..mainly due to alsa again
23:40kvandivo>changing the WindowOrigin to ParentOrigin fixed the backgrounds on the slider and the lcd.. The label still seems to not be quite right.. but, it is better than before
23:41rkulagow>ok, weird. tuners 1 and 2 are recording, tuner 3 is watching live tv and trying to record a program that should go to tuner 4 is still generating that "current state is: 4" error message.
23:41toothpick>after changeing modules.conf do I need to reboot?
23:41thor_>kvandivo, you need to get at the QLabel "inside" your slider object and change it as well
23:41Netslayer>toothpick, probably..not sure
23:43Netslayer>i seem to recal some way of having myth show the favorite channels on the scheduler.. isn't that possible?
23:44Netslayer>aka only those favorite channels
23:44kvandivo>i set the origin on the hbox to parent, and on the label and slider that went inside the hbox.... actually, looks like the lcdnumber one didn't have the origin being set at all..
23:44toothpick>ok going to reboot
23:44=toothpick [] quit (Remote closed the connection)
23:45kvandivo>but, i can dig around a bit on it.. at any rate, I'm planning to add that basic rank line to 'i', advanced 'i', etc
23:46Netslayer>rank is used for auto conflict resolution right
23:47kvandivo>no. rank will be used for automatic recommendation determinations
23:47Netslayer>i'm confused
23:47kvandivo>you rate your shows, myth finds other shows you might like, yada yada yada
23:48Netslayer>how can it compare shows?
23:48jbeimler>as a group of myth users, or through other searches/
23:48kvandivo>both, eventually
23:49mikegrb>Chutt: you still about and have a moment to talk about the themes stuff?
23:49jbeimler>appears that I sit at about 35% load with a single recording
23:49Netslayer>mpeg4...what res
23:50+mecraw_ [] joined #mythtv
23:50Netslayer>i'm trying to think if i want to setup software RAID5 or RAID0 for my file/myth server
23:52+Toothpick [] joined #mythtv
23:52Toothpick>Do you know how to enable my tvout on my nvidia geforce 5200 fx?
23:52Netslayer>do u have the NV drivers installed
23:53Toothpick>Netslayer: yes
23:53Netslayer>edit your XF86Config file.. there is info in the nvidia docs
23:53Netslayer>TVFORMAT NTSC .. stuff like that
23:54jbeimler>pretty easy actually.
23:54Toothpick>ok thanks
23:54jbeimler>but for some reason, bzflag won't run with the official nvidia driver for my old TNT2
23:55Toothpick>OT et ran well with my machine last night for a test run
23:56+mecraw__ [] joined #mythtv
23:57jbeimler>gonna try it on the new dual head card in the office tommorow, see how it does. anyhow, have to be there in not too many hours.
23:58Toothpick>did you run nvtv Netslayer
23:58Netslayer>nope, tried it.. never worked for my cards encoder.. so i went with NV's driver
23:59Netslayer>actually i might go back two versions, the overscan worked better..doesn't seem to work in the new one
23:59Toothpick>searching for docs now
