00:02Kuwanger>Is there anything else in /dev/video?

00:05hadees>what i need for my case now is to write somthing so i can use my powermate knob
00:07Kuwanger>You'll also have to modify /etc/security/console.perms to make sure that video/video.* isn't included.
00:09hadees>yeah what is the deal with /etc/security/console.perms
00:09hadees>what is it for?
00:09hadees>seems like the same as devfs but over rides it
00:09Kuwanger>Whoever is at console gets special privileges.
00:10Kuwanger>That's why <logged in user>.<group> 660 is permissions for most things in /dev
00:10Kuwanger>s/group/related device group
00:10Kuwanger>Or was that 600..hmm..
00:13hadees>has anyone seen myhtpc? i just don't see how people can use that for an htpc...

02:56o_cee>and the console says?
02:57ShockValue>bash-2.05b$ mythsetup

03:33ShockValue>hrm.. i cant seem to get myth to recognise my audio filename structure for naming...
03:33ShockValue>this is what my dirs look like
03:33ShockValue>. /Audio/Artist/Album/Artist - Album - Track Number - Track Title.flac
03:34o_cee>go to the mailinglist instead, this is a dev recourse
03:34hadees>does the ebuild upgrade everything for you?
03:34hadees>like right now i am running .12 and i want .13, do i do anything besides emerge mythtv ?
03:35ShockValue>i set myth to: Directory = /Audio and filename format = ARTIST - ALBUM - TRACK_TITLE
03:35ShockValue>what did i miss?
03:35o_cee>hadees: no clue, never used them
03:36sfr>ShockValue: in the ripper settings?
03:36ShockValue>no, in the music->general settings
03:36ShockValue>also i selected 'ignore id3 tag' since none of my music has id3's
03:37sfr>ShockValue: it's all your fault then, (living without id3 tags)
03:37ShockValue>flac files dont have id3 tags...
03:37ShockValue>or at least.. they shouldnt (although some bastards still put them on there)
03:38sfr>so filename should look s/t like Artist/Album/Artist-Album-Track_No-Track_Title
03:39ShockValue>track_no is an option? ididnt see that listed anyplace
03:39sfr>but i never used the ignore id3 tags options, so i could be wrong
03:39ShockValue>trying it now :)
03:39sfr>ShockValue: "s/t like that" ;)
03:39+Netslayer [] joined #mythtv
03:41ShockValue>yeah, i dont think track_no is an option
03:42ShockValue>o_cee i tried the TRACK_TITLE option which seems to suggest it will read the track number AND the title, but that didnt seem to work...
03:42sfr>could be just track instead
03:42ShockValue>artist - album - track_title

09:40mikegrb>I need to remake the image and make the box come out just a little more from the side to give a bit more room for subject and from... maybe move down more towards the bottom too

09:46mikegrb>had a box rooted
09:47mikegrb>by the time I was ready for sleep there was no point
09:47mikegrb>it was mainly my fault... I was running some questionable code to determine it's affects
09:48mikegrb>I need to finish up my research on that this weekend and fire off a message to the bugtraq list on monday perhaps
09:48mikegrb>at the very least to some isp's ;)

09:49mikegrb>was really funny on the box of mine they screwed themselves over
09:49mikegrb>they messed up the /etc/passwd file and then couldn't go any further

10:48warlord>the transcode works in the background.
10:48warlord>did you go into the directory and check the files?

10:50janek>warlord: I checked with top... the cpu remained idle
10:50warlord>Hmm. I only tried the transcode once.
10:50warlord>So I'm not really a good person to help.
10:50janek>though following your suggestion I looked in the directory and it appears that it did attempt to create a .tmp file for it
10:51janek>it only got to 5.5MB of it though
10:52janek>it could be because that channel has a tendency to change resolution after the adverts at the beginning of a program, which mythtv doesn't seem to like during playback so perhaps it's the same problem
10:53janek>but it's the same for another program I tried to transcode...
10:53warlord>yea, probably.
10:54janek>only one of them is from that channel though... but perhaps it just killed the transcode daemon

17:11Berto>oh god dependency hell... time to rebuild my own rpm
17:12pcjabber>thats why i like apt-get
17:12pcjabber>i run RH9
17:12pcjabber>the only thing i had d/l'd at the time
17:12pcjabber>and it is on a suck-@$$ computer

17:13Berto>yeah i'm wondering how watching tv will go on my athlon 550
17:13pcjabber>I am (hopefully) getting a Pundit for Christmas
17:13pcjabber>asked the parents =)
17:13Berto>i'm still not even sure if the cable into my room is good.. i should get a real tv up here just to test it quick
17:13pcjabber>Ath 550? shouldnt go too bad
17:13Berto>yeah 400 or so mb ram
17:13pcjabber>you running BTTV, or IVTV?
17:13Berto>been a work horse for 4 years now
17:13pcjabber>not bad at all
17:13Berto>why? whats ivtv
17:13pcjabber>me too, for now
17:13Berto>yeah it does what i need - mp3, homework, and chat
17:14pcjabber>IVTV = driver for WinTV-PVR250/350
17:14Berto>no i have a pinnacle systems pc studio
17:14pcjabber>which is (hopefully) what i am getting for Christmas also
17:14pcjabber>Pinnacles run on BTTV, IIRC
17:14Berto>i don' eeven use it (will soon hopefully).. but i've DEFINITELY gottne 80 dollars worth out of the remote + xmms
17:14Berto>yep bttv
17:14Berto>i thought maybe ivtv was a new competitor of bttv and had better stuff or something...
17:15pcjabber>nope...just a different type of driver
17:15pcjabber>and it wouldnt work with a bttv chipset...
17:15pcjabber>kinda like trying to use an nVidia driver on an ATI card
17:15Berto>wishing i had a faster processor now though... building xmltv is doing these test_filters taking forever
17:15Berto>haha yea
17:15Berto>oh yeah for mythtv, should i enable my nvidia GLX super drivers? i just using the base XFree ones right now
17:15pcjabber>xmltv is a pain in the @rse to build
17:16pcjabber>i would say so...I dont have an nVidia card in my system, but i think its recommended to do so
17:16Berto>oh, i already am using em... didn't even know
17:16pcjabber>if you dont, you wont get XV support, which you need for Myth (IIRC reading the list right)
17:16Berto>i see..
17:16*pcjabber has to eat something before he collapses

17:34pcjabber>OSD and theme
17:34Berto>(if *I* get .13 going ever
17:35Berto>look! the source made no tv_grab_na either
17:35Berto>what is going on...
17:37Berto>i see why
17:37Berto>HTML::Parser 3.34 or later is required for tv_grab_na
17:37Berto>i have 3.31
17:37pcjabber>that makes sense
17:37pcjabber>do a "force install HTML::Parser" if it wont let you update it in CPAN
17:37Berto>ok thanks
17:38Berto>i already started a regulare one, i thinkit'll work
17:38pcjabber>any clue what the icons in Play recordings mean?
17:38SarahEmm>yep, one sec
17:38pcjabber>the RIP logo, the book, the $ with a no symbol thru it?
17:38pcjabber>thanks sarahemm
17:38Berto>no money? i'd think they would WANT donations
17:39SarahEmm>heh, no_money symbol = commercials flagged
17:39sfr>pcjabber: use your imagination for a second :)
17:39Berto>wow can myth flag its own commercials?!
17:39Berto>or you do that yourself?
17:39SarahEmm>it does.
17:39pcjabber>it can flag them
17:39SarahEmm>hit 'z' to skip a commercial break.
17:39Berto>wow how does it do that?
17:39pcjabber>or turn on autocommercial skip
17:39Berto>does it get a code from the cable company, or is it smart software?
17:39pcjabber>smart sw
17:39SarahEmm>it's in the config, either by blank screen detection or scene change detection.
17:39Berto>that's so cool...
17:39SarahEmm>Berto: smart software. cable companies don't want to encourage commercial skipping :)
17:39Berto>pcjabber: care to explain how that code operates?
17:40pcjabber>blank frame detection, and it works verrry well
17:40Berto>SarahEmm: that's what i figured
17:40Berto>thats cool
17:40SarahEmm>anyone know what 'scene change detection' is?
17:40Berto>but what if i'm watching seinfeld and the screen goes blank, switching to a new scene
17:40SarahEmm>i've got it set to 'blank frame detection' right now which works okay, but not great
17:40Berto>interesting stuf
17:40SarahEmm>Berto: i think it relies on the longer-than-normal blank screen before/after commercial breaks.
17:40Berto>very cool indeed
17:40pcjabber>Berto and Sarah, if you turn on Strict detection, it will watch for a few blank frames before flagging
17:41pcjabber>it works better
17:41Berto>what language is myth written in
17:41Berto>i cguess i could just check
17:41SarahEmm>Berto: C++ mostly
17:41pcjabber>wow that was a quick response
17:41Berto>i been neck deep in C++ this quarter
17:41pcjabber>Qt, too
17:41Berto>yeah i figured some qt
17:41*billytwowilly played too much cs in his youth;)
17:41billytwowilly>reaction time is king;)
17:41*SarahEmm is learning C++ as she writes extra stuff for Myth
17:42pcjabber>C++ and Qt mainly
17:42pcjabber>along with MySQL lol
17:42SarahEmm>and PHP for the web stuff.
17:42Berto>I like C++ a lot... we just had a huge class for system software
17:42Berto>wrote a microprocessor simulator, assembler, and linking loader
17:43Berto>yeah the dreams in C++ are starting to stop haha
17:44Berto>of course it doesn't work. why would it! Can't locate XMLTV/ :)
17:44*Berto shoudl follow instructions.. nevermind
17:45sfr>as boring as that is, but it usually helps
17:46Berto>i'm so used to make / make install i didn't realize they wanted a make test in there
17:46Berto>if this works i'm gonna go downstairs to watch tv like never
17:46Berto>and i'll actually get to record shows that i should watch but never do... like south aprk

18:03Berto>i just have a gnome panel weather applet for that
18:04marc_>well, I've got a TV set :-)
18:04sfr>marc_: i've only seen you join/quit as far as i remember :)
18:04marc_>oh. sorry.
18:04marc_>rebooting my myth box all the time because i'm playing around with ivtv. which breaks my network connection
18:05marc_>anyways... mythweather can't seem to gather a weathermap for my location
18:05warlord>perhaps you should use irc from some other box?
18:05marc_>i do
18:05marc_>but they're both on the same bridge
18:05warlord>then why would rebooting myth do anything to your network connection?
18:05marc_>whenever the bridge learns about the myth box coming live, it gets all ecstatic
18:05marc_>for a couple seconds
18:06warlord>sounds like you need a new network appliance.
18:06marc_>I'm glad it works at all. Connects my ethernet based network with 2 computers using bluetooth dongles
18:06marc_>pretty transparent, except for the disruption.
18:06marc_>and only really noticeable in irc
18:07pcjabber>mythweather seems to have a problem with gathering weathermaps sometimes
18:07mchou>anybody here using kernel 2.4.21 or above? (with bttv 9+)?
18:07pcjabber>press "i" in mythweather
18:08pcjabber>and set your connection setting to a lower speed (medium speed connection, etc)

18:08mchou>actuall I meant kernel 2.4.22 and above.....
18:09marc_>pcjabber: doesn't seem to do it...
18:09marc_>maybe it's just then...
18:09pcjabber>marc:, sometimes has hiccups =)
18:09pcjabber>it wont get a map for me ATM either
18:09SarahEmm>pcjabber: i think you cam.
18:09pcjabber>brb got to SSH into my BSD server
18:09pcjabber>k thanks sarah
18:10Berto>wow its worknig!! slick too! its even downloading jpg files of each channel!
18:11Berto>are those files from xmltv people or mythtv people?
18:12mdz>neither, really, but the URLs come from xmltv or the provider it uses
18:13Berto>mchou: i have 2.4.22, but mythtv not yet up and running
18:14Berto>how many times is this filldatabase thing gonna check for schedules.. jeez
18:14SarahEmm>Berto: it fetches data for each channel for each day.. at least tv_grab_na
18:14SarahEmm>i just run it at 0100 every day
18:14Berto>SarahEmm: oh really what if i never run it again?
18:14Berto>i won't know whats on every channel?
18:15mchou>Berto, are you planning to use a bttv card?
18:15Berto>mchou: yes i am
18:15mchou>Berto: what distro's kernel?
18:15Berto>SarahEmm: oh its checking for like every day... it's getting data for dec 15 now.
18:15Berto>mchou: mandrake 2.4.22-10mdk
18:16Berto>SarahEmm: is this going to go like a month in advance or what? i kinda wanna test if the TV works :)
18:16pcjabber>it will probably get for up to ten days
18:16*Berto is antsy
18:16pcjabber>*up to*
18:16Berto>i'll vacuum the room in the meantime
18:16pcjabber>sometimes 14 days, if you are lucky
18:16pcjabber>on a broadband (roadrunner cable) connection, it takes me ~30mins
18:16Berto>lucky? no way, i wnna watch NOW
18:16Berto>we switched from roadrunner to wide open west.. cheaper
18:16SarahEmm>Berto: by default it pulls in 10 days i think.
18:16warlordis now known as warlord-afk
18:17SarahEmm>Berto: if you want to keep it up to date, you need to run it regularly.
18:17pcjabber>run it in CRON
18:17mchou>Berto, OK, here's the scoop. I tried 2.4.23 last night, and mythtv backend keeps on crashing. I'm not really sure of what's going on, but I suspect it's due to bttv rewrite (9+)
18:17pcjabber>run it at least every week
18:17pcjabber>i run it every day, to make sure there are no last-minute sched changes
18:17Berto>mchou: try going back to 2.4.22?
18:17pcjabber>i run it at about 4AM
18:17SarahEmm>mchou: running the latest myth?
18:17Berto>yeah i'll do a weekly cron on it prolly
18:18mchou>SarahEmm: yes. 13, not from cvs
18:18pcjabber>make sure its at least weekly
18:18pcjabber>weekly is kinda pushing it
18:18pcjabber>but its ok
18:18mchou>Berto, are you at your linux machine now?
18:18pcjabber>i do that *all* the time
18:18pcjabber>dont feel bad
18:19*SarahEmm runs it every night just to make sure everythign stays up to date.. no real disadvantage to running it daily that i can see, if you have an always-on connection
18:19*pcjabber does too
18:19mchou>Berto: can you do "dmesg | grep bttv" and tell me what bttv version is running?
18:20Berto>mchou: yeah and then ill be cleaning for a few mins
18:20Berto>mchou: i'll msg you it

18:37pcjabber>Sarah, what should i type
18:37pcjabber>in the mysql console to allow myself access?
18:37Berto>but no good video either... it displays the channel right ("NEWS WITH JIM DONOVAN" or whatever)
18:37pcjabber>so no video on any channels?

18:40pcjabber>k berto
18:41Berto>pcjabber: yes, the cable up here works... so mythtv is getting crap signal on each channel. any docs on tuning or programs to do it?
18:42sfr>Berto: xawtv works with your tuner card?
18:43pcjabber>if xawtv doesnt work, then there is something wrong with your bttv setup
18:44Berto>lets see once i plug back in
18:44Berto>what makes xawtv so smart that mythtv isn't
18:44pcjabber>xawtv is just a simple TV player
18:45Berto>ooh in mandrake, the first time i ran xawtv, it brought up this config tool
18:45Berto>how can i reset it so that that config tool comes back
18:46mchou>Berto, what does your modules.conf say for bttv? make sure u got the right options there.....
18:46Berto>mchou: nothing :-(
18:47Berto>xawtv is getting a signal every now and then

18:47Berto>sfr: the cable works on a regular tv 100%
18:48Berto>so i'm dealing with some other kind of problem
18:48mchou>this is for a hauppauge wintv dbx
18:48Berto>hmm xawtv is straightening it out a bit
18:48mchou>Berto: are you NTSC or PAL?
18:48SarahEmm>Berto: likely you have the wrong tuner or wrong ntsc/pal/band selected
18:48SarahEmm>Berto: and you set xaw to NTSC?
18:48SarahEmm>and did you set xaw to us-cable?
18:48SarahEmm>(or whatever country-cable or -bcast)
18:48Berto>us-cable for regular cable
18:49Berto>OOH its working better
18:49Berto>kinda fuzzy
18:49SarahEmm>yeah, us-cable
18:49Berto>let me try other channels
18:49mchou>Berto, do you know what make and tuner is on your card?
18:49Berto>now blurry again. weird.
18:49SarahEmm>also, you likely need to specify the tuner you have when you load the module.
18:49Berto>mchou: i have a pinnacle systems PC TV Pro
18:49Berto>Studio Pro
18:49Berto>maybe i should look up some options
18:49SarahEmm>autodetect often doesn't work.
18:49mchou>Berto, yes, you need options.
18:49SarahEmm>check the card and tuner options for bttv and tuner modules
18:50Berto>ok thanks guys!!!! i'm CLOSE
18:50sfr>Berto: see the docs in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/video4linux/bttv for details
18:50Berto>sfr: good idea.. i was about to hit google and get frustrated
