00:00GreyFoxx>Did you set a password for the mythtv user other than "mythtv" ?
00:00mizery>no, I used mythtv
00:01mizery>editing it now: to see me in action
00:01GreyFoxx>Have you relaoded, or stopped+started Mysql since creating the newuser/password ?
00:01mizery>will do so now
00:02mizery>blah, how do I restart mysql?
00:03tmk>run /etc/init.d/mysql restart
00:03tmk>assuming redhat
00:03GreyFoxx>depends on how you installed it. Some have a mysql_server init script, some have rc.mysql, etc
00:03tmk>chutt: i sent you an email
00:03GreyFoxx>you could also do a mysqladmin -uroot -prootpassword reload
00:03mizery>same problem
00:03GreyFoxx>what do you get if you attempt to connect manually?
00:04GreyFoxx>mysql -umythtv -pmythtv mythconverg
00:04mizery>k, I'll work on that
00:09mizery>I am not sure what's wrong. It appears the privileges are set correctly.
00:09mizery> to see what privileges mythtv has for the mythconverg table
00:09GreyFoxx>You are connecting from localhost right? Not from another box? what happens when you try a mysql -umythtv -pmythtv mythconverg ?
00:09mizery>yeah, from localhost
00:10mizery>ERROR 1045: Access denied for user: 'mythtv@localhost' (Using password: YES) (as seen in screen capture
00:10+Ripp [] joined #mythtv
00:11GreyFoxx>Do you have logging enabled? Check the log to see what it's showing you as connecting from?
00:11GreyFoxx>For example is it showing mythtv@localhost, mythtv@ or mythtv@
00:12mizery>no data in that file
00:13mizery>nor mysql.log
00:13GreyFoxx>no, it would be something like yourhostname.log
00:13GreyFoxx>located in your mysql data directory
00:13GreyFoxx>for example on my box mysql is installed into /home/mysql, my mysql data dir is /home/mysql/var and my logfile is /home/mysql/var/woop.log since my box hostname is woop
00:22mizery>I just updated the files database and "locate *.log | grep -l sql" only lists one file.
00:23mizery>which is weird
00:23mizery>oh nm
00:23mizery>grep -i localhost has no results

12:12sfr>grillvanten: lower the resolution
12:13hardwired>mythmusic has some problems when an mp3 had both an id3v1 and id3v2 tag
12:13grillvanten>its like 480x480 now..
12:15+grillvan1en [] joined #mythtv
12:21hardwired>i just hope this isn't already fixed in cvs... :)
12:22sfr>hardwired: what kind of problems?
12:23hardwired>sfr: i am just trying to fix it... the 'genre' is duplicated for certain mp3s. For instance, one of my mp3s correctly has 'Blues' as genre, another one has 'BluesBlues'
12:23hardwired>they differ in that the incorrect one has both and idev1 and id3v2 tag, the correct one only id3v2
12:25sfr>hardwired: aaah, that's a long-standing bug indeed. i never looked at it as i (assumed) my mp3's only have id3v2 tags but obviously some have both tags.
12:25hardwired>yeh, at the beginning, all my mp3s had v1 only, and at some point i switched to v2, and some have both as it seems
12:25*sfr goes to check his easytag settings. it should remove id3v1 tags
12:26hardwired>that's one way to fix it... :)
12:26hardwired>do you know whether the bug is with mythmusic or libid3tag?
12:26sfr>not really, sorry.
12:26=grillvan1en [] quit (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
12:27hardwired>np. i'll see if i can fix it
12:27+grillvan1en [] joined #mythtv
12:28sfr>if you are already looking at it, i'd like mythmusic to prefer id3v2 tags if both types are stored.
12:29sfr>btw, should that be 'as you...'?
12:31hardwired>there's lots of stuff i'd like to see improved with mythmusic... to get to know it i decided to see if i can fix some small bugs, then propose some improvments
12:32grillvan1en>is it possible to make the liveTV to just show tv? not prebuffer or anything.. but to have it just like in xawtv?
12:33sfr>grillvan1en: you can have it start an external tv appl. but you loose all mythtv features. iirc look in tvmenu.xml
12:33=loebrich [] quit ("ChatZilla 0.9.35 [Mozilla rv:1.5/1]")
12:34grillvan1en>sfr: okej.. but lowering the resolution might help. i have 480x480.. what would you suggest?
12:34=grillvanten [] quit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
12:34sfr>grillvan1en: try a few settings and see if they work for you. i use a pvr350 card here.
12:35grillvan1en>sfr: okey.. i'll try and see..

13:05nou_>does mythtv receive lirc command then pass them to mplayer ?
13:13hardwired>nou_: i use irxevent
13:13c0nflict>is it just me or is down?
13:13hardwired>c0nflict: it is
13:14hardwired>nou_: irexec i mean
13:14c0nflict>search googles cache is quite annoying for list archives =p

13:18meth>fn~nou_ still around?
13:20meth>can someone send me tv_grab_na, i cant compile since my perl is to new, i spose..
13:20nou_>hardwired: do u mean using irexec instead of native lirc ?
13:20meth>nou_ i have mplayer setup with lirc
13:20meth>i dont belive mythtv controls it
13:20meth>nou_ you use irexec to start mythtv, irxevent to control things inside it
13:20meth>then irexec to control mplayer
13:20hardwired>nou_: i use irexec to control mplayer, and native lirc to control myth
13:21+grillvanten [] joined #mythtv
13:21meth>can someone send me their tv_grab_na
13:23nou_>ok thx for ur answers, in fact i can use native lirc with both mythtv and mplayer
13:24nou_>i can put it on a webserver
13:25meth>what ir remote/receiver do you have
13:26nou_>it's a noname multi functions remote, and lirc_sir (motherboard irda module)
13:26hardwired>nou_: ahh, yes, you are right, i mixed things up. I use native lirc for both myth and mplayer, i use irexec only for the mapping of my reboot and power-down button
13:28meth>what ir receiver/remote do you have hardwired
13:28hardwired>meth: hauppauge grey remote plus matching receiver
13:28meth>ah hehe

13:44nou_>is there a way to avoid the "Unknown Artist ~ /mp3/path/another/directory/filename.mp3" title when files have no id tag in mythmusic ?
13:44nou_>it's annoying and it doesn't fit on the screen
13:44hardwired>yes, make mythmusic ignore id3 tags and use directory structure for sorting
13:44hardwired>^-- nou_
13:46+grillvanten [] joined #mythtv
13:48nou_>that doesn't change anything
13:49sfr>unknown artists are unknown artists. there's an option to determine song details from the filename.

13:55nou_>it's sad, there isn't so much documentation
13:55+grillvanten [] joined #mythtv
13:56racer>think there is a bug somewhere with the filling of the database
13:56racer>has to be because i know for sure the tags are ok
13:56=grillvanten [] quit (Read error: 54 (Connection reset by peer))
13:56sfr>nou_: not yet, somebody (you?) has to start writing it.
13:57hardwired>racer: check the database and see if it's filled correctly
13:57hardwired>racer: then tell me
13:57racer>the database is filled with the song name including the path so no tags
13:57nou_>the basic documentation has to be written by the authors
13:58nou_>i can guess but i would loose time
14:00+grillvanten [] joined #mythtv
14:00racer>database example: /hd2/Music/A-C/Abba/Gold Greatest Hits/06 - Super Trouper.mp3
14:00racer>in field title
14:01sfr>i don't think there's a paragraph in the GPL that forces authors to add a user manual to their s/w. :). it's a lot of work and for now documenting the installation process has been the focus afaik.
14:01racer>and this in filename:
14:01racer>A-C/Abba/Gold Greatest Hits/06 - Super Trouper.mp3
14:01nou_>in the same time i don't expect authors to write documentation when they're not able to comment their code
14:02nou_is now known as nou
14:03sfr>racer: this is latest cvs. did you see this also with earlier versions?
14:03racer>yep, as long as i use mythmusic!
14:04racer>why things changed recently
14:04racer>in mythmusic?
14:04sfr>racer: not much. i changed the filename field to only hold the path relative to the music location. it used to be the absolute path in older versions.
14:06racer>ah ok i see

14:24racer>maybe chutt, but if you have the filename's numbered than the tags don't work!
14:25Chutt>it doesn't use the filename if you have proper tags.
14:25Chutt>at _all_
14:25Chutt>unless you've told it to use the filename and not the tags
14:25racer>i now removed all the numbers from the filename and now database is correct filled with tag info
14:25racer>not true chutt, i told him to use tags!!!!!
14:26racer>did not change option and only changed filenames now its correct
14:26Chutt>i wrote the code, i know what it does.
14:27racer>usually bugs are not found by the programmer :)
14:27Chutt>there's a difference between a bug and totally different behavior
14:28racer>so what is according to you the behaviour of this option?
14:28Chutt>of what option?
14:29racer>to not ignore the id3 tags?
14:29Chutt>the tag parsing does not use the filename at all
14:29racer>yeah thats what i thought
14:29racer>try this:
14:30Chutt>all my songs have their track numbers prepended to the filename.
14:30Chutt>works fine.

14:37sfr>meth: same here but i don't use xmltv.
14:37meth>how do you update the program guide then
14:38sfr>meth: with a tv guide on paper and a few code-monkeys updating the epg in my cellar :)

15:12+FryGuy [] joined #mythtv
15:13sfr>engie: did you check the kernel documentation? there's an extensive list of cards with details.
15:16engie>It's there, but it seems to be the only one without a tuner type listed !
15:17engie>I've got a cx88 based card - do you know how far along those drivers are?
15:20Matt>some of the bttv cardtypes will happily auto-detect the tuner type
15:20Matt>I know it does with my miro pctv
15:21pmoreau>What video cards are you guys using? I have an ATI9200SE and it seems slow. I get choppy video and really lags the audio.
15:21Rroet>wheeee... for all ivtv users, there is an ivtv-cvs ebuild in the making.
15:21engie>Arg, machine keeps crashing.....
15:22pmoreau>Im using ivtv with a PVR250
15:22Rroet>pmoreau: well, there is an ebuild in the making.
15:23Rroet>I just got it sent over by Brian (iggy <at> gentoo) ... and I've corrected it to some errors I found..
15:23pmoreau>I don't seem to have problems with the PVR
15:23Rroet>looks like a solid ebuild right now.
15:23Rroet>pmoreau: I do have problems, some times in recordings my sound is gone :(
15:24Rroet>pmoreau: it also contains the newest hauppauge firmware drivers.
15:24pmoreau>My sound it there, just leads the video so much that it chops waiting for the video
15:25pmoreau>Anybody try the KnoppMyth distribution? I'm using R4
15:25pmoreau>Is uses MythTV 0.12
15:25Rroet><-- myth 0.13 release2
15:25Rroet>works wonderfull now.
15:26nou>is there a way to horizontally scroll filename/title in play music @mythmusic ?
15:27sfr>nou: install mythmusic < 0.10 iirc :) it did that for the currently playing song.
15:27+dja__ [] joined #mythtv
15:27Rroet>sfr: rofl
15:27nou>ok :)
15:28pmoreau>Anybody out there use an ATI9200SE? If not, I'm going to try another card. I would like to hear what cards you guys are using with the PVR-250 and having good success.
15:28nou>and the author decided to remove that function ?
15:28Rroet>ehm, pmoreau I'm using a Epia-M system with onboard CLE266.
15:28sfr>pmoreau: as long as Xvideo is working, almost any card should be fine i believe. i use a Matrox Marvel G400 myself.
15:29Rroet>so I can't be much of a help. I heard a load of people getting it to work on various cards.. ati / matrox / Nvidia are all well supported
15:29pmoreau>My MoBo is the ECS K7VTA3 no onboard video.
15:30sfr>nou: not really. the whole gui got improved, removing the need (not for everyone it seems) for scrolling
15:30pmoreau>No luck with the onboard audio so I'm using a SB-Live!
15:30nou>sfr: ok
15:32pmoreau>With the PVR-250, what format is the nuv files? MPEG2?
15:33Rroet>YV-12 afaik
15:33Rroet>or was it YV-24?
15:35nou>where's mythmusic's changelog ? :)
15:36nou>i guess so
15:36sfr>nou: the cvs-commits ml might help
15:36nou>at least not in the tar.bz2
15:38engie>When my bttv module loads, it said it can't find 3 tuners then it said it's registering video0. Does this mean it has given up finding a tuner?

20:53Octane>no -users and no -dev
20:53Octane>technically speaking it should be called -users
20:53Octane>and the current users should be -newbie or -questions

20:55sfr>never :)
20:55Octane>a real users ml that is

21:14cmorgan>oh, one question
21:14cmorgan>if i remove the qApp->unlock()/processEvents()/lock() inside of PlaybackBox::play() there is no keyboard input once live tv starts
21:14Chutt>right, that has to stay.
21:15cmorgan>does that somehow block the handoff of key processing?
21:15Chutt>it enables it
21:15Chutt>gotta process events for key press events to get delivered
21:16cmorgan>so the playbackbox is still open when livetv is playing?
21:16cmorgan>and passing key events down to the livetv object?
21:16Chutt>not when live tv
21:16cmorgan>oh, i mean watching a recording
21:16Chutt>just recorded file playback
21:16cmorgan>i think the code mentions live something, my bad
21:17Chutt>the qt event loop handles the keypresses
21:17Chutt>when recorded playback starts, it's in the event loop already
21:17Chutt>and that function doesn't return until playback is over
21:17Chutt>so, it needs that processevents in a loop

22:48jaeger>greetings, all
22:53jaeger>anyone using a via epia m6000 with mythtv? I'm curious how well a 633MHz C3 processor can actually handle PVR duties when coupled with a pvr-350 cap card
22:54Chutt>as long as you're using the 350 for decoding, should be fine
22:54Chutt>stuff will be slow, though
22:54Chutt>you won't be able to do the more cpu intensive music visualizations, for instance
22:55jaeger>the card will definitely do the decoding, I'm wondering mostly about the mythtv interface and overhead itself
22:55jaeger>right, makes sense
22:55Chutt>it's a _slow_ processor
22:55jaeger>I haven't built the box yet, I'm trying to decide between the 633MHz m6000 or the 1GHz m10000... I'd like the 633 since it's nearly silent
22:56Chutt>my m10k is about the same speed as my old p3-500
22:56jaeger>is it sufficient for what you do, pvr-wise?
22:57Chutt>it's got a -350 in it
22:57Chutt>the tv out quality on the motherboard sucks
22:57jaeger>hrmm... how so? low res? blurry?
22:57Chutt>the -350 is a _lot_ better
22:58jaeger>so you can use the pvr-350's output as well as capture?
22:58Chutt>of course
22:58jaeger>(I have no experience with cap cards yet)
22:58jaeger>I'm definitely planning on getting the pvr-350, so I won't worry about the onboard one
22:58jaeger>do you think I should go with the m10000 over the m6000? the price isn't much different
22:59Chutt>i wouldn't get anything slower than the m10k
22:59Chutt>and i doubt i'd buy the m10k
22:59Chutt>only reason i have one is because via sent it to me
22:59jaeger>any suggestions, then? :) I'm open to alternatives
22:59Chiphead>frontend/backend or both?
23:01jaeger>I'd like to do both in one box, gonna put it in my entertainment center
23:01Chutt>you don't need _much_ cpu
23:01jaeger>that's the reason I'm looking at mini-itx systems
23:01Chutt>looked at the pundit?
23:01jaeger>never heard of it, but I'll check it out
23:01Chutt>i've not seen one in action, but people like it
23:02Chutt>i don't know if a -350 will fit in one, though
23:02jaeger>hrmm... ok
23:02jaeger>asus pundit?
23:04jaeger>yay for google
23:06jaeger>hrmm... pundit looks decent but it'll be loud and hot, I think

23:11Chiphead>you can do both :)
23:12Chiphead>it with a recycled p2-400 and 250 in the basement make for a great system

23:19dabone>hiya folks, quick question, I just added another front end to my box and can use the guide. is the because of qt? if so is there a easy how to on how to downgrade it to version 3.1.2?
23:20dabone>that should say can't use the guide. watch tv and watch recordings work fine.
23:22dabone>is this mic on? :)

23:23jaeger>dabone: sorry, I'm a newbie here

23:33daralc>how fat of a pipe would i need to run the frontend at an entirely different location from the backend?
23:34Chutt>do the math for your recording bitrate
