00:12kvandivo_>grab some text from the page, do a grep -r on your tree and see what you get
00:15Netslayer>that'll work
00:17Netslayer>this will take awhile
00:19Netslayer>Chutt, is there a way of having a frontend/slavebackend machine to use the masterbackends card for livetv if it's not busy before it's own?
00:20Netslayer>how about makind myth fonts all antialiased?
00:20Netslayer>or better fonts, remember u were discussing it a few days ago..
00:20Chutt>look on the mailing list
00:20Chutt>or the archives of this channel.
00:20Chutt>i don't feel like explaining it to you
00:20Netslayer>that's fine i know your busy
00:20Netslayer>we're being archived
00:20*Netslayer looks both ways
00:21*grogan hopes we get a few more releases to play with before Chutt burns out on irc questions :>
00:25grogan>Chutt: are you doing all of this in addition to a full time job?
00:25Netslayer>wow this logging is scary
00:26kvandivo_>remember: everything you say can and will be used against you at some point in the future.
00:27Chutt>grogan, yes
00:28Chutt>more than full time, really
00:29grogan>well.. I wish I had more skill with which to contribute
00:29grogan>I certainly hope you're doing something at least half as interesting as mythtv for your real job

02:50racer32>i know if you delete /dev/lirc and recompile LIRC it will be made by make install
02:51racer32>my machine also complains about /dev/lirc
02:56racer32>look in /var/log/lircd file
02:56zeronett>you have to use 0.7.0pre2 dont you?
02:57zeronett>how do you restart lirc?

09:08o_cee>you've got a pvr-350 and using the tvout?
09:09marc>shouldn't we move over to #ivtv?
09:10o_cee>the patch is for myth
09:11Rule>The patch from today is supposed to fix some stutters because of the decoder starving for data, iirc
09:11marc>oh. then I'm seriously off.
09:11Rule>haven't looked at it :)
09:11Rule>well not the patch, the changes to the patch
09:11Rule>sorry :)
09:11o_cee>i tried it a little, but the drivers are still not that stable
09:12marc>was thinking of mail from Sun 14th in ivtv-devel:Re: [ivtv-devel] Decoder mailbox handling
09:12o_cee>(using tv-out)
09:12marc>the patch from Anduin has helped quit a bit here.
09:12marc>my main issue is recordings without audio.
09:12Rule>the basic idea is that it shouldn't open and close the device every time a seek is done
09:12marc>not tinny audio, none at all
09:13o_cee>Rule: seeking seemed to work very nice, but when using the fb (epg and such) it doesn't like me anymore
09:13o_cee>seeking was very quick indeed
09:13Rule>I'm also using the ivtv-fb and pvr350 output
09:14o_cee>epg working allright?
09:14o_cee>ah, now i remember ;) when i had his patch applied and using the 350 for tvout i couldn't do anything in live tv mode.. no keys responded at all. very odd
09:17Rule>it occasionally hangs in livetv
09:17Rule>when seeking
09:18Rule>for me anyway
09:18Rule>as logn as I don't ffwd or so, it's fine

09:54sfr>wow: beta-testing live-tv with CVS (good excuse ;)): 1% of the earth core is gold, enough to cover all continents knee-deep with it.
09:56[hC]> hmm. with the new debian unstable debs for mythtv, i go to watch tv and the screen goes black and hte kernel panics.
10:04[hC]>yay, alsa sound drivers fixed it.
10:04[hC]>Now only if it would quit this prebuffering pause stuff out so i could actually watch something.
10:05fathom>hC i have that same problem
10:05fathom>well actually i just can't get the sound to record into a show...
10:05[hC]>Mine pauses once every two seconds.
10:05[hC]>Mine used to hard lock every time i went into live tv because of the OSS via drivers.
10:05fathom>sent an email out to the mailing list, but of course those things are about as fast as a frozen pond.
10:05fathom>are you getting audio when you record a show though?
10:06[hC]>Havent got that far yet ;)
10:06+gerhard [] joined #mythtv
10:06sfr>fathom: could be your audio capture device isn't set up properly
10:07fathom>well, it's a sblive
10:07fathom>i installed all the alsa stuff, and it'll play audio
10:08sfr>setting up mythweather surely brushes up your geography
10:08fathom>lol i bet
10:08=gerhard [] quit (Client Quit)
10:09fathom>so okay audio capture, is that going to be my sound card or something else?
10:10sfr>sound card
10:10fathom>i've tried 3 different sound cards and had the same problem with all of them.
10:10sfr>did you run the xawtv/aplay test?
10:10fathom>yeah, and i get buffer underun errors

10:18sfr>can't help you much with that
10:19fathom>no one seems to be able to help :(
10:19fathom>the weirdest thing about this, is the box will play mp3s and stuff, just not the aplay /dev/dsp thing
10:20sfr>it's not about playing, but about recording from the dsp and playing it back at the same time, aka full-duplex mode afaik.
10:21fathom>i remember seeing something about spdiff or something like that, any idea what that's about?
10:21fathom>maybe something to do with full duplex?
10:22sfr>spdif is about digital-audio output from a soundcard to an external amplifier
10:23fathom>i'm searching on full duplex on the sblive with alsa
10:26=mecraw_ [] quit ("Trillian (")
10:28[hC]>are there hotkeys in 'watch live tv' like to bring up the program guide?\
10:28fathom>Audio devices:

10:28fathom> <-- shows i'm full duplex....
10:28sfr>[hC]: read keys.txt
10:28[hC]>Thanks sfr.
10:32[hC]>hm. maybe this thing keeps buffering cause its encoding too high of quality in live tv or something. im using an avertv bttv tuner on a celeron 1.3ghz and the load goes to 100% when watching live tv and it buffer pauses every two seconds

10:54Zeran>yeah.. where is taht section?
10:54Zeran>oh o
10:54mikegrb>no problem
10:54Zeran>then run it under gdb right
10:55[hC]>ah, my buffering pause goes away when i send the resolution through the floor.
10:55Zeran>"make clean" , "make", "make install" after changing that setting?
10:55Zeran>or do I need to do something with qmake?

11:03fathom>for testing
11:03hardwired>i am using gentoo
11:05fathom>i'm using an odd distro, but so far it hasn't really mattered.
11:05fathom>i had this sound problem under fedora as well
11:06hardwired>here pretty much everything works
11:06hardwired>dvd playing crashes often, and i can't switch back to myth without garbling the screen after i play something
11:06hardwired>the rest works

18:11duende>if you have native lirc support compiled into myth, then you don't need to use irxevent
18:12duende>you'd put something like this in your lircrc:
18:12duende> prog = mythfrontend

18:12duende> config = Up
18:17Netslayer>restarting frontend after i tweak this should work then

18:17mdz_>which explains that
18:17Netslayer>there is a HOWTO for native lirc?
18:18Netslayer>i have the rest setup
18:18mdz_>there is a HOWTO for MythTV which discusses native lirc

20:53Netslayer>anyone here running a slave backend?
20:53sfr>not yet, but i'd be happy to be your master.
20:54Netslayer>i'm confused. When you set the slave recording directory to a local drive, does the master backend just move it when it's done? or do i have to setup both backends to record to a central location?
20:55sfr>crib2: as it's already loaded in firebird
20:55Netslayer>should i just set my slave backend to nfs -> my masterbackends dump location?
