00:04+witten [] joined #mythtv
00:04<witten>any idea what would cause the backend to spontaneously die?
00:04<witten>I'm not seeing anything helpful in the logs
00:05<Chutt>get a backtrace?
00:05<Chutt>don't run it as a daemon until you've got things working properly?
00:05<witten>run it from gdb?
00:05<tmk>speaking of backtraces
00:05<tmk>did you ever look at mine chutt?
00:05<Chutt>unless it's printing out a message that's not being logged.
00:05<Chutt>tmk, yeah
00:05<Chutt>i can't reproduce it
00:06<tmk>ah well
00:06<Chutt>i know what's wrong, though
00:06<tmk>old rev? :)
00:06<Chutt>it's not noticing that the remote backend went away
00:06<Chutt>naw, nothing's changed in there recently
00:06<tmk>cool. youdaman
00:06<tmk>you hear from mr. engel recently?
00:06<Chutt>i'm just not sure what to do, as on my setup, if i kill a remote backend, the master notices and deals with it properly
00:07<Chutt>he was supposed to be out of town until this weekend
00:07<Chutt>so he'll hopefully be back around soon
00:07<Chutt>going to work on his stuff soon?
00:07<Chutt>i'd like to get that in mythtv =)
00:07<tmk>yeah i'm half done
00:07<Chutt>excellent, thanks =)
00:07<tmk>got the stream stop/flush in there
00:07<tmk>just need to do the ff one
00:07<tmk>also i put in a stop caputre one
00:07<Chutt>non-blocking writes?
00:08<tmk>hmm didn''t remember that
00:08<Chutt>was only a few lines for that
00:08<tmk>i'll look over his patch again
00:08<tmk>yeah i'll probably take that straight from the patch
00:09<tmk>lots of new subsystem-id's coming out lately
00:09<tmk>not sure if that's good or bad
00:09<Chutt>just card variants
00:09<tmk>3 in the last week
00:09<Chutt>i'm just wondering if their inputs are differently ordered
00:10<tmk>yeah the 0.2.0 code will have all that easily configurable
00:10<tmk>or at least configurable :)
00:10<vagrant>are the keys configurable in mythtv?
00:10<Chutt>of course.
00:10<tmk>chutt: do you prefer any particular input name? I was thinking of changing "Tuner 0" to "Television"
00:10<Chutt>run mythweb, go to the settings page in there
00:11<Chutt>tmk, be prepared to break everyone's myth machine :p
00:11<tmk>i'll have to do that anyhow i think
00:11<tmk>for some people at least
00:11<Chutt>i can auto-upgrade people's databases
00:11<tmk>ie if they have the cards with inputs named differently
00:11<tmk>ie if composite 4 is the tuner
00:11<Chutt>i don't use the input number, i use the name of it
00:11<tmk>that's gonna have to change
00:12<vagrant>gah. I hate mysql.
00:12<tmk>perhaps i can commission a script from someone
00:12<tmk>to convert the database
00:12<Chutt>i'll handle that
00:12<Chutt>no worries
00:12<tmk>also 0.2.0 will support v4l2 streaming
00:12<Chutt>i'll just have to make a decision on when to convert things over
00:12<Chutt>eh, doesn't really matter to me
00:12<Chutt>the one frame reads work well enough
00:12<tmk>well if you want yuv out
00:13<Chutt>i don't, so =)
00:13<tmk>really? people don't want to playback their mpg4''s on the pvr350
00:13<Chutt>oh, true
00:13<Chutt>i figured that'd work the same as the current decoder
00:13<tmk>we'll see
00:13<Chutt>just writing full images instead of compressed stuff
00:13<tmk>yuv's a lot more data
00:13<Chutt>please don't make it _too_ different :p
00:14<tmk>it'll work the same as currently
00:14<Chutt>i'd like to use the same output class, if possible
00:14<tmk>jsut depends if you do the streamoff streamon stuff
00:14<tmk>optional to do streaming
00:14<tmk>hopefully write() is fast enough
00:14<tmk>i'm going to try doing zero-copy
00:14<tmk>we'll see how that goes
00:14<Chutt>will i have to pre-scale things?
00:14<tmk>not sure
00:15<Chutt>and how's audio sync going to work?
00:15<tmk>it scales mpg currently
00:15<tmk>there's a delay ioctl i'll have to write
00:15<Chutt>it'd be neat if it could act as a dsp device for audio as well =)
00:15<tmk>yeah that'll take some r&d
00:15<tmk>it MAY be possible
00:15<tmk>but i havne't seen anything in the docs that indiciates it's possible
00:15<tmk>or not
00:15<Chutt>nothing in those firmware docs about it, but
00:15<Chutt>it'd make sense
00:16<tmk>that'd be nice
00:16<tmk>and if i can write audio-out
00:16<tmk>audio in should be pretty much the same
00:16<Chutt>no soundcard =)
00:16<tmk>and i can finally have radio
00:16<tmk>my epia has it all builtin
00:16<Chutt>yeah, but the cabling mess is annoying
00:16<tmk>but it'd be really nice to get the sound out internally
00:16<tmk>cause the epia can't output digital out from an analog line-in
00:17*tmk shakes fist angrilyl
00:17<Chutt>i really want to replace mine
00:17<Chutt>i want two tuners
00:17<tmk>get a riser card
00:17<Chutt>and i don't want to buy a new case
00:17<tmk>i still need to find a working powersupply for mine
00:17<tmk>did i tell you about that? bought a flex-atx powersupply
00:17<tmk>long and thin
00:18<tmk>worked 1 out of 10 times
00:18<tmk>and the network didn't really work
00:18<Chutt>heh, sucks
00:18<tmk>so i returned it
00:18<Chutt>which powersupply?
00:18<tmk>got a new one
00:18<tmk>same problem
00:18<Chutt>i've got a crappy flex-atx one with a loud 40mm fan in it
00:18<tmk>lemme find link
00:18<Chutt>so i replaced the fan with something quieter, so i'm waiting for it to die of heat
00:19<ChaosExiguum>Im using a 90w ac-dc converter and a dc-dc powersupply, no fans, no underpowering trouble
00:19<tmk>ChaosExiguum: might work, but i'll be running 2 pvr cards and the epia
00:20=accurate [] quit (Client Quit)
00:20<Chutt>and a harddrive
00:20<tmk>and a dvd
00:20<Chutt>ah, no, i don't have that one..
00:21<tmk>i like the shape
00:21<ChaosExiguum>hmm, dunno about with 2 pvr cards... and all that stuff, I could get out the multimeter
00:21<Chutt>i've got the flex atx-135pf
00:21<ChaosExiguum>what sort of cases are you guys using?
00:21<tmk>does it work wiht the epia?
00:22<Chutt>yeah, works fine
00:22<tmk>ChaosExiguum: i made mine :)
00:22<Chutt>it's _loud_, though
00:22<tmk>oh hm
00:22<Chutt>and i really didn't like performing surgery on mine
00:22<tmk>just the one fan?
00:22<tmk>well, at least i know flex atx works with the epia
00:22<Chutt>that came with the case i first got for the mini-itx
00:23<Chutt>which won't fix a pvr-350
00:23<tmk>i was concerned that the flex-atx was missing some power
00:23<ChaosExiguum>tmk, thats really the best way to go I think now (having a $250 case thats really only worth $100)
00:23<tmk>ChaosExiguum: yeah, it's pretty cool and all
00:23<tmk>but the powersupply thing is killing me
00:23<vagrant>oh you sonsabitches.
00:23<tmk>returning internet orders sucks
00:23<tmk>don't get replacements for like 3 weeks
00:23<vagrant>I *know* you didn't make mythweb depend on apache mod_php.
00:23<vagrant>apparently you did though.
00:24<Chutt>vagrant, oh boohoo
00:24<vagrant>let's see what I have to do to fix this.
00:25<Chutt>i'm pretty damn sure it's not dependent on it.
00:25<DJ_Rican>yep... and Apache mod_php can be hacked....
00:26<vagrant>Chutt: setting php values in .htaccess needs mod_php - it's not the only way to do that, I don't think - I'm investigating it - but this is generally a "Bad Thing"(tm).
00:26<Chutt>it's an example .htaccess
00:27<vagrant>DJ_Rican: are you making a poor attempt at being sarcastic?
00:27<Chutt>nothing in there's _necessary_, iirc
00:27<DJ_Rican>me? no never... i can't be sarcastic.. i'm not a mythtv developer... :)
00:27<vagrant>Chutt: that's the first step I'm trying, disabling it.
00:27<vagrant>DJ_Rican: mod_php doesn't exactly have the best security record.
00:28<DJ_Rican>i know :)
00:28<vagrant>and it's especially not secure in a multi-user hosting environment
00:28<DJ_Rican>so it's not really sarcastic if it's true huh?
00:28<vagrant>DJ_Rican: I thought you were implying I'm being anal about mod_php security. heh.
00:28<DJ_Rican>no dude
00:29<Chutt>yeah, mythweb works fine without the example .htaccess that's in there.
00:29<vagrant>gah. stupid apache.
00:30cmorgan_awayis now known as cmorgan

00:35<DJ_Rican>what's with the little jumping icon thingy when i view an mpg?
00:35<Chutt>what icon thingy?
00:37<DJ_Rican>ok.. i read in the user list that a .nuv file is simply a .mpg file renamed... so i renamed one to .mpg and when i view it... there's an icon jumping all over the place... a little white box with a dot
00:37<Chutt>it's only a .mpg if you're using a pvr-250/350 or similar card.
00:37<Chutt>if you're asking about some other player software than mythtv, that's not my problem
00:38<DJ_Rican>i am using a pvr-250 :)
00:48*nvision away init 0
00:49<tmk>pvr-250 .nuv files are just .mpgs
00:50<tmk>you can play them in mplayer or whatever
00:51<DJ_Rican>tmk: i know... but if i copy them to my winders, thay have that elecard icon thingy, no matter what player i use... :(
00:52=monkyBox [] quit (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
00:54<tmk>probably because they supplied your mpg decoder
00:54<extremis>so... on the DVB settings, what is the option for record from transport stream?
00:54<extremis>rather, what does it imply
00:56<vagrant>there we go.
00:56<DJ_Rican>darn it, i deleted that elecard no i can't play them at all!! :(
01:07<extremis>saa7115.c:1118: unknown field `dec_use' specified in initializer

11:36<bitbyte>sfr you there?
11:46+holger [] joined #mythtv
11:47<sfr>bitbyte: hi
11:48<bitbyte>myth~sfr: i just got the file off that machine, works great
11:48<bitbyte>very nice uqlity
11:48<sfr>great. i'm glad it works
11:48<bitbyte>me too
11:48<bitbyte>i really appreciate it!
11:49<bitbyte>my wife can't wait to see it
11:49<bitbyte>been a long time
11:49<bitbyte>i was reading online that it's from the 1920's
11:49<bitbyte>i didnt know it was that old
11:49<kvandivo>a file from the 1920s? that's impressive
11:50<sfr>hah. btw, nuvexport automatically created a SVCD file in PAL. that wouldn't have helped you i think.
11:50<sfr>kvandivo: yeah. i typed for 3 weeks 0's and 1's off an old book
11:51<sfr>bitbyte: i don't know about the story itself, but the movie is from the late 50's afaik.
11:51<bitbyte>really, thats interesting
11:51<bitbyte>sfr, i just read on a website that it's from the 1920's
11:51<bitbyte>hang on
11:52<bitbyte>It's a bit bizarre when you think about it. A short British cabaret sketch from the 1920s has become a German New Year's tradition. Yet, although \x93Dinner for One or the 90th Birthday\x94 is a famous cult classic in Germany and several other European countries, it is virtually unknown in the English-speaking world, including Britain, its birthplace.
11:52<kvandivo>never heard of it
11:54<bitbyte>kvandivo, what country do you live in?
11:54<sfr>funny that the quotes are in german too. i've never seen this sketch being played in german.
11:54<bitbyte>i've only seent he introduction in German
11:54<bitbyte>which is odd, because usually german tv overdubs the original soundtrack
11:55<bitbyte>i wa windering if the german announcer at the beginning was part of the original film or if they overlayed him in the scene somehow
11:55<bitbyte>usa, so do i, i've never ever seen it int he US and other than myself and my wife i don't know anyone here who has heard of it
11:55<bitbyte>unless they are german or european
11:56<sfr>usually = 99% of all foreign movies :(. but playing it in english gives it a different atmosphere i think.
11:56<bitbyte>sfr, agreed, but they translated alf
11:56<bitbyte>hehe, you havent lived til you've seen alf, golden girls and John Wayne in german
11:56<sfr>hehe. must sound very strange if you know the original
11:57<bitbyte>very strange
11:57<bitbyte>in .be and .nl they subtitale, although soemtimes they don't even do that, most everyone speaks english
11:59<sfr>i wish they would do that in germany too.
11:59<Sobek>Hey guys quick question I am running RedHat 9 on my myth box and after mplayer runs the window focus is wrong and the remote obviously does not get the job done. I am using the default window manager is there a way around this besides changing window mangers?
12:00<thor_>change focus policy
12:01<pahli_bar>what plugin pops up mplayer?
12:01<Sobek>Cool.. mythvideo
12:01<Sobek>I will try that
12:01<sfr>pahli_bar: or mythdvd
12:01<thor_>heh, oh yeah
12:01<thor_>that too
12:02<pahli_bar>any plans of embedding it in a qwidget/qdialog
12:02<thor_>we need a native player
12:02<thor_>but mplayer is a handy stop gap
12:03<pahli_bar>that would be the ultimate goal
12:03<bitbyte>sfr, never happen, they translate EVERYTHING, even "microwave" haha.!
12:03<sfr>what format do you use for archiving recorded shows? especially when using a pvr350 card.
12:04<sfr>bitbyte: true. btw, do you know what a 'handy' is?
12:05<thor_>immediately useful (at hand)
12:05<sfr>it's a mobile phone :)
12:05<bitbyte>i was thinkin that
12:06<bitbyte>its the only thing i could think of
12:06<sfr>even cellphone makes more sense than 'handy'
12:06<pahli_bar>is that british slang?
12:06<sfr>probably if you don't know it, pahli_bar :)
12:07<kvandivo>definitely not _only_ british
12:07<pahli_bar>i haven't heard it being used here in us
12:08<thor_>defintely sounds like Essex Man speak
12:08<kvandivo> Ready to the hand; near; also, suited to the use of the
12:08<kvandivo> hand; convenient; valuable for reference or use; as, my
12:08<kvandivo> tools are handy; a handy volume.
12:08<kvandivo>that's from websters 1913 dictionary
12:09<pahli_bar>oh no. i mean in as a synonym for a cellphone
12:09<kvandivo>ahhh..... hmmmm
12:09<pahli_bar>i know what handy means ... grrr
12:09<kvandivo>i thought the brits always called them 'mobiles'. (with a long 'i')
12:09<sfr>kvandivo: i don't think there's a meaningfull explanation for 'handy' that describes a phone. that's a prime example of denglish i think.

12:14<sfr>why would windows media player v7 fail to play a SVCD? it doesn't recognize the mpeg file created by nuvexport
12:15+mchou [] joined #mythtv
12:16<thor_>becuase it sucks
12:17<sfr>i hope the svcd itself is ok. i don't have a standalone dvd player to test.
12:17<thor_>mplayer svcd:// ?
12:17<bitbyte>svcd is mpeg2
12:17<sfr>that's working, but mplayer takes almost everything :)
12:17<bitbyte>do you have the mpg2 codecs for it?
12:18<bitbyte>sometimes they just dont recognize the format
12:18<sfr>it's a default w2k instllation.
12:18<bitbyte>you can go into the mpegav folder and play the dat file as an mpg
12:18<bitbyte>win2k doesnt support mpg2 playback by defualt
12:18<bitbyte>you have to install some 3rd party playback codec
12:18<bitbyte>like windvd or power dvd
12:19<bitbyte>mpeg2 is proprietary and cant be licensed for free
12:19<bitbyte>whereas mpg1 is free
12:19<sfr>ok, i think i have windvd. checking
12:19=holger [] quit ("Client exiting")
12:20<sfr>of course i don't have it ;)
12:20<bitbyte>download the free trial version
12:21<bitbyte>i prefer powerdvd myself
12:21<sfr>looks like the trial version so that one i have
12:21<bitbyte>hehe ok
12:21<sfr>but not a licensed copy if you know what i mean
12:21<bitbyte>that will get you int he ballaprk
12:21<bitbyte>i can find you some codecs if you like
12:21=mchou [] quit (Remote closed the connection)
12:22<sfr>you don't need to. i only use it for work stuff.
12:23+Henk_Poley [] joined #mythtv
12:25<pahli_bar>sfr: usually (s)vcd have some videostream resolution dependency. wmp might not play non-standard vcds. but i could be totally wrong
12:26<sfr>pahli_bar: the format should be ok, the file is in PAL mode with 480x576 resolution
12:28<pahli_bar>sfr: how did you make the iso/cue-bin. using vcdimager?
12:28<sfr>pahli_bar: yes
12:29<pahli_bar>sfr: then should not be a problem at all. as bitbyte said, missing codecs might be the most likely reason

14:31<sfr>looks like it's time for someone to start mythradio :)
14:33<sfr>vagrant: both, your question and my line are not related to lirc
14:33<sfr>someone reported succes on getting the tuner on a pvr350 card working
14:34<thor_>FM tuner ?
14:34<vagrant>is there a tuner on the pvr250?
14:34<dja>nope :-(

14:48<racer_away>modes in lircrc??? Nope

14:50<vagrant>thor_: just because you don't have it in your configuration doesn't mean it can't exist.
14:50<vagrant>sorry for even fucking asking, I assumed you guys might have looked a bit at configuring lirc.

16:04<kvandivo>none of us have ever experience the working model not working exactly as planned
16:04<thor_>rudimentary, yes .... as planned, well, that's the plan :)
16:05<Chutt>ah, i see why mythmusic's deleting/reentering everything on every scan
16:05<thor_>something goofy I did ?
16:05<Chutt>naw, sfr missed one place
16:06<thor_>ah ... the /location/folder change
16:06<thor_>good to get that fixed ... tired of re-entering playlists

16:07=Henk_Poley [] quit ("Client exiting")
16:07<Chutt>in main.cpp
16:07<Chutt>it's using the full path
16:12<sfr>ah, shoot
16:13<thor_>Chutt, at your leisure, you can rip out /mfd/mfd/plugins/daapserver/httpd_persistent from mfd cvs
16:14<Chutt>just cvs remove all the files in the directory
16:15<thor_>I'm trying to get rid of the directory itself
16:15<thor_>or we can just use -P
16:15<Chutt>cvs update -P
16:15<thor_>yup, just annoying to have it sitting there
16:19<sfr>i think i didn't miss it. my idea was that we always keep the full path and only cut if off for updates in the db.
16:24<steelep>with mfd are we going to finally be able to watch tv while playing music?
16:25<thor_>yup ... well, that's the plan
16:26<steelep>while you are doing daap, is it something winamp can connect to?
16:26<steelep>or just an iTunes thing.
16:26<thor_>as soon as winamp adds a daap client :-)
16:27<steelep>I really like winamp5 now, it fixed everything I ever hated about winamp
16:27<steelep>maybe a shoutcast server would suffice for my needs instead of daap for now
16:28<steelep>I just want to get at my home library from work
16:28<steelep>I hated downloading things over and over again
16:28<sfr>thor_: so how are playlists broken? my little test playlist is still there after exiting/restarting mythmusic
16:29<thor_>after a scan ?
16:29<Chutt>actually, my problem was doubled //'s
16:29<racer32>yes after a scan
16:29<steelep>I have the autoplaylist thingy pretty close to being done in php
16:29<sfr>thor_: oh, one sec...
16:29<steelep>now I just need to convert it to c++
16:30<thor_>(I'm hitting the same database with mfd stuff, so it could be that)
16:30<steelep>is someone doing cover art display in the visualizer?
16:30<thor_>it's a frequent request
16:30<thor_>but I don't think anyone's actively workin gon it
16:31<steelep>I have spent the last 3 days working on fixing all my tags and adding embedded coverart....
16:31<Chutt>if i had a reliable way to grab coverart, i'd probably add it
16:31<racer32>visualizer? By selecting music showing the cover would be nice!
16:31<steelep>I am up to "B" :)
16:31<Chutt>but there isn't one, so i haven't ever bothered
16:31<thor_>I think you can do it through itms://, but I'm still poking at the xml
16:32<racer32>i talked to pahli and after his work on the gallery he's thinking about mythmusic! :)
16:32<racer32>Nice interface for selecting music!
16:32<steelep>creating a visualizer plugin that extracts the art from a file, or scans the directory for jpgs should be pretty straight forward, I'll add it to my list of things to do
16:33<Chutt>very straightforward
16:33<thor_>you can get aac previews via itms:// (with a robust query mechanim), and the returned aac has a jpeg inside it
16:33<sfr>thor_: yes, created a playlist exit/restart mythmusic. scan for music files exit/restart mythmusic. the playlist is still in the db. are they being deleted from the db for you?
16:34<thor_>they were, but as I said, it may well be mfd code that's doing it
16:34<sfr>Chutt: ?
16:34<racer32>my playlist are also gone for some reason
16:34<Chutt>i just committed some stuff to use QDir::cleanDirPath
16:34<Chutt>on the music path
16:34<Chutt>before blindly removing that many characters from the filename =)
16:34<Chutt>fixed all my problems
16:35<sfr>Chutt: it was only doing it half-blindly. it knows how many characters to remove. ;)
16:36<sfr>Chutt: i really didn't expect _you_ to have '//' in your path.
16:37<Chutt>i didn't think i did
16:38<sfr>Chutt: but before it deleted your playlists? or all musicmetadata entries?
16:39<Chutt>deleted all the musicmetadata entries
16:39<Chutt>so, in effect, cleared out my existing playlists
16:39<Chutt>not that i had any on this machine =)
16:39<steelep>btw: does the new wma support include wm9?
16:39<Chutt>try it and see
16:39<Chutt>i have absolutely no idea
16:39<steelep>I will when I get home
16:39<steelep>I have to do a full cvs refresh tonight
16:40<thor_>sfr, new entries, new db id's
16:40<sfr>thor_: sure
16:40<steelep>wm9 video support would be nice, I have a few HD videos in wm9
16:41<Chutt>that's up to other projects
16:41<steelep>I know, just blabbering

16:54<sfr>Chutt: BuildFileList is actually ok then?
16:56<Chutt>it was
16:57<sfr>thinking about it, i'd think it should even work with // in the path, it's just one more character to remove from the filename string
16:59<Chutt>the filename returned by BuildFileList won't have the doubled /
16:59<sfr>ah, of course. i shouldn't drink (even reasonable amounts ;)) and think
17:00<kvandivo>don't drink and think... that's a new one
17:00<Chutt>so, any word on that streaming code?
17:00<thor_>time to give up thinking
17:02<sfr>not really. didn't do much/nothing over the holidays. i have extraction of stream metadata working, but somehow it gets confused after a few songs.
17:03<sfr>maybe 'don't think, just drink' is a better option for some.
