00:10<Salec>is there anything i need to specify for multihead?
00:12<robbie>google for xinerama
00:13<robbie>if you use an nvidia card with the drivers from nvidia then read the readme, its got everything
00:13<robbie>and the nvidia stuff installs some examples in doc
00:13<Salec>i have a voodoo3 in there right now
00:13<Salec>with a pvr 350
00:25warlordis now known as warlord-afk
00:34<Salec>how do i specify a dual head display in X?
00:34<Salec>i have the config files setup
00:35<Salec>currently i just run startx
00:35<Salec>and it blanks out my tv screen and i get xfree on the monitor
00:35<Salec>can i then specify mythfrontend to run on the screen?

01:47<Salec>how can i grant user access to /dev/video?
02:01<Salec>when i try to playback video
02:01<Salec>all i get is a black screen
02:01<Salec>and no sound
02:02<Salec>using pvr 350
02:13<Salec>hey guys i'm having some probs with mythtv and a pvr 350
02:14<Salec>i have Xfree running on ivtv-fb

02:36<Sembiance>How does everyone handle syncing your local computer time with the time source used by your cable channels?
02:38+tdb30_ [] joined #mythtv
02:38<Sembiance>I'm thinking maybe I should hack up mythtv and add support for a 'time offset' on a per channel basis from system time.
02:39<Sembiance>This way if Comedy Central is 30 seconds faster than system time, and MSNBC is 10 seconds slower, I can input the correct settings so that MythTV will record on time.
02:40+Netslayer [] joined #mythtv
02:46<Netslayer>anyone know how to set the playback settings like color, brightness? I can go through the settings on the screen but there is no way to change them, the keys.txt says to use the arrow keys, which don't work. Any ideas?
02:47=hfb2 [] quit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
02:52<Sembiance>Also I plan on hacking up mythtv so it will use mplayer to play back recorded TV shows and also play live feeds from PVR 250's.
02:52<Sembiance>because MythTV's own 'video player' SUCKS MAJOR
02:59<Salec_>how does it suck?

03:04tattrdkatis now known as virsys
03:04<Sembiance>Well MythTV deals with lots of different tuners.
03:04<Sembiance>Some need to be combined with sound input on sound cards.
03:05<Sembiance>So Myth has a lot of code to combine video and audio.
03:05<Sembiance>This is great for those people with those tuners.
03:05<Sembiance>But for those of us that use tuners built in this millennium (PVR250/350), they just output a raw MPEG stream including audio.
03:06<Sembiance>and I know that I get 10 times better performance using MythVideo and mplayer to play my recorded .nuv's than I do trying to use Myth to watch my recorded shows.
03:07<Sembiance>anyways. It won't be a problem once I hack up Myth to support ysing mplayer for everything.
03:07<Salec_>let me know when you do :)
03:07<Salec_>i know with dd i get 1% cpu viewing livetv
03:07<Salec_>with my nice pvr 350
03:10<Salec_>i'm having problems with mythtv and it though
03:10<Sembiance>Yah, MythTV is major OVERKILL for the Pvr250 cards. All I want myth to do is 'cat /dev/video0 > videofile.mpg' at the right times :)
03:10<Salec_>it displays a black screen when viewing livetv :(
03:10<Sembiance>And use 'mplayer /dev/video0' for playing tv ;)
03:10<Salec_>hehe yea!
03:10<Sembiance>salec: you can use mplayer to play live tv, pause, etc.
03:11<Salec_>mplayer runs in x right?
03:11<Sembiance>yup. just need to instruct mplayer not to cache
03:11<Sembiance>mplayer runs in everything including x. there is also a framebuffer version and sdl version and more
03:11<Salec_>i just want something that will use the ivtv's framebuffer
03:12<Sembiance>sigh, I really should write my 'WinTV PVR250/PVR350 ONLY' MythTV competition some day ;)
03:12<Salec_>and have an onscreen program guide etc. :)
03:12<Sembiance>ahh, see I use MythWeb for everything
03:12<Sembiance>with 4 tv tuner cards, I set it up to record all sorts of things I want to watch
03:12<Sembiance>then I casually watch them when I get around to it
03:12<Salec_>i can't imagine it being so hard to simply write a program
03:13<Salec_>that snags the mpeg from ivtv
03:13<Salec_>and adds a layer on top
03:13<Salec_>i need to toy with the fb alpha handling
03:13<Sembiance>hehe, it's not hard at all
03:13<Salec_>perhaps you could play the mpeg directly and just do all the extra drawing on the fb
03:13<Salec_>say the program guide etc.
03:13<Sembiance>fopen("/dev/video0", "r")
03:14<Sembiance>You could use libsdl for the drawing, in a fullscreen transparent x-window
03:14<Sembiance>or something else ;)
03:14<Sembiance>heh, don't have much experience with x-windows programming
03:14<Salec_>i'm a windows game developer
03:14<Salec_>so i have no experience
03:15<Salec_>but i'm a very fast learner
03:15<Salec_>would it be possible to write directly to the framebuffer?
03:15<Salec_>that way i don't need to deal with X
03:16<Sembiance>well maybe you want to look at libSDL? It gives you direct access to the screen. And it runs in X or in framebuffer mode, and other stuff too.
03:16<Sembiance>I even thought about using Mozilla and XUL to make a mythtv type program
03:16<Sembiance>using webpages, javascript
03:16<Salec_>that would be slow
03:16<Salec_>you want fast ass performance :)
03:17*Sembiance wishes he had like 6 months off from work where he could devote to making a Mythkiller.
03:17<Sembiance>of course mine would only work with the PVR250/350 cards
03:17<Salec_>i'm stuck writing a gamebryo game :(
03:17<Sembiance>I don't care about all the rest
03:17<Salec_>that's OK!
03:17<Salec_>fuck the rest man
03:17<Salec_>easy fix
03:17<Salec_>write an external program that takes the rest
03:18<Sembiance>I spend most of my days writing tcp/ip socket server daemons and web pages for work
03:18<Salec_>and encodes an mpeg stream
03:18*Sembiance is very tired and is going to bed.
03:29+marc [~Marc@] joined #mythtv
03:29<Salec_>do you have a pvr 350?
03:30<Salec_> can you get myth tv to work with it?
03:31<marc>just watching live tv :-)
03:31<Salec_>with mythtv?
03:32<Salec_>when i load up mythtv in X on the ivtv-fb
03:32<Salec_>and i go to watch live tv
03:32<Salec_>the screen goes black and i just hear audio
03:32<Salec_>however if i manually set the transparencies using ivtvfbctl and use dd i can watch tv
03:32<Salec_>but i don't see anything on X
03:33<marc>I'm not an expert - but it looks like something wrong with the localalpha/globalalpha settings
03:33<Salec_>anyidea where i can change those?
03:34<marc>can you play with ivtvfbctl while watching - and see if you can get a picture?
03:34<marc>sometimes myth gets it wrong for me, too. typically when switching channels and pressing the info button and the menu button all at the same time
03:37+lykke [] joined #mythtv
03:38<lykke>Morning :) anyone here running with an Terratec Cinergy 400 (saa7134) ?
03:39<Salec_>when i mess ivtvfbctl i get a mirror image on the screen
03:39<Salec_>like it was ripped or something
03:40<marc>then this would be a good time for somebody more knowledgeable to join the discussion
03:40<Salec_>gonna reboot and write down the defaults :)
03:41*lykke will come back later - have to test my 2.6.1 kernel :)

10:03<Rroet>hi all
10:04<Rroet>any1 have success yet with getting ivtv work under 2.6.x ?
10:08<StuartL>I'm having a minor issue with 2.4.24
10:08<Rroet>hi stuart.
10:08<Rroet>I'm not having any issues atm
10:08<Rroet>well.. I have 1
10:08<Rroet>that is unloading the viafb module, but since I don't use it anyways I don't mind.
10:11<StuartL>Gonna reboot, I think it might be the ivtv-fb module causing the issue. Two secs.
10:12=beetle110 [] quit (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
10:15<StuartL>Yeah, it was ivtv-fb
10:22<Rroet>ivtv-fb ... not for me ;)
10:22<Rroet>I have a 250 ;)
10:22+poo [] joined #MythTV
10:23<StuartL>Just thrown some downloaded porn vids at the decoder out of curiosity :)
10:23<StuartL>Seems to work for about 3/4 of them :)
10:24<StuartL>(the mpeg streams, haven't tried the avis, not expecting them to work)
10:24<Rroet>but the 350 only outputs mpeg2 right ?
10:24<StuartL>It seems to output mpeg1 too.
10:24<Rroet>no, it's a mpeg2 decoder chip...
10:24<Rroet>don't expect it to know what mpeg4 is
10:24<StuartL>Some mpeg1 it has a problem with but tried quite a few successfully.
10:24+beetle110 [] joined #mythtv
10:25<StuartL>Has an issue with non-standard audio too (e.g. MP3 audio).
10:25<StuartL>No surprises there.
10:27<StuartL>Ah dammit.
10:27<StuartL>It decodes the video for spaceballs just fine, no audio though :(
10:28<StuartL>Ooh, hangon, it is working just very cwiet.
10:37<beetle110>What works better for capturing from two tuners, and transcoding. Two PIII 933's, or One AMD 1800+?
10:38<beetle110>the PIII's are SMP.
10:39<pahli_bar>beetle110: what tuner cards
10:41<beetle110>currently have one pvr-250
10:41<beetle110>avermedia m179 is on order.
10:42<pahli_bar>both are hardware encoders cards. cpu is hardly used for simply capturing.
10:42<pahli_bar>for transcoding more the cpu merrier it is
10:43<pahli_bar>not sure how 2 P3 933 will stack up against one 1800XP
10:43<beetle110>pahli_bar: guess I'll just have to find out.
10:44<pahli_bar>but i have a feeling it will become more io bound (hard disk write) when you have two captures running

11:31<eauxnguyen>is this dev only or can I ask stoopid user questions here?
11:31<hardwired>eauxnguyen: you can ask... provided you read the faqs and mailing list archives
11:32<eauxnguyen>agreed. I have spent a fair amount of time in the manual, faqs, and archives, my answer is probably there and I haven't found it yet
11:32bitbyteis now known as bitster

11:36<pahli_bar>eauxnguyen: elaborate.
11:36<eauxnguyen>I understand I should clone it? When I look at the X1186 config it appears to only be set up for one crt at 1024x768?
11:38<pahli_bar>eauxnguyen: have you read the nvidia README which comes with the drivers
11:39<eauxnguyen>yes I read through it last night. If the answer is there I will go reread it before tying up people here. It was late ;)
11:42<pahli_bar>that would be your best source. if you can't figure it out, ask questions here
11:42<pahli_bar>or better on the mailing lists
11:44<StuartL>This better?
11:44<hardwired>yeh :)
11:45<StuartL>hardwired: Please excuse me, I know loads about linux, kernels etc but I've never got the hang of X11. I use linux for servers so a desktop is new to me.
11:45<hardwired>StuartL: did you create a user for mythtv already?
11:45<StuartL>I've got mythfe (I was thinking about having mythfe and mythbe but mythbe doesn't exist yet :))
11:45+godless [] joined #mythtv
11:45<StuartL>Small steps, etc.
11:46<StuartL>MySQL has a user mythtv password mythtv granted.
11:46<hardwired>i mean a system user
11:46<hardwired>the one that is supposed to rn the frontend
11:46<StuartL>That's the mythfe user.
11:47<hardwired>just run the command startx as that user, you should get a very basic x, two xterms and some sort of clock
11:47<hardwired>then you should get errors instead :)
11:47<StuartL>I get a "caught signal 11" message...
11:47<StuartL>No other errors (like bad configs or anything).
11:48<StuartL>I don't have a mouse on that system, is that going to cause a problem?
11:48<hardwired>StuartL: uh, maybe /var/log/XFree bla log?
11:48<StuartL>Ooh, 2 secs.
11:49<hardwired>StuartL: yeh, it needs a mouse, or 'Option "AllowMouseOpenFail"' in the ServerFlags section of XFree86Config
11:49<StuartL>Nope, no errors in there.
11:49<StuartL>Ok, I'll check that.
11:49<StuartL>DOes it still need the pointing device command or should I comment that out?
11:49<StuartL>InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
11:51<hardwired>i still have it in
11:51+abhi [] joined #mythtv
11:51<StuartL>Indeed, if I remove it it bombs out with an error.
11:52<hardwired>StuartL: try to run xf86config
11:52<StuartL>Hmm, ok.
11:52<StuartL>Shall I back up XF86config first?
11:52<hardwired>can't hurt
11:53<abhi>if i only have one line-in on my audio card, is it possible to have 2 tuners with audio? do any cards have digitial audio things for connecting to sound card inside?
11:53<pahli_bar>abhi: FAQ.
11:54<rkulagow>chutt: i'm at a loss as to why all of a sudden my boxes are sometimes timing out on frontend<->backend comms. any pointers? ReadStringList is timing out, usually after a QUERY_RECORDINGS Play on the frontend. i'm compiling for debugging now...
11:56<rkulagow>i'm also going to use an ethernet crossover cable between the boxes in case it's a switch issue. (that'll be easiest to check, but weird in a different way)
12:01<hardwired>StuartL: ehh, wait.
12:01<hardwired>StuartL: i meand xf86cfh
12:01<hardwired>StuartL: i meand xf86cfg even
12:01<hardwired>StuartL: not xf86config
12:01<StuartL>Too late.
12:01<StuartL>Got a picture, though.
12:02<StuartL>SO something fixed it.
12:02<StuartL>No mouse :)
12:02<hardwired>heh ok
12:02<StuartL>This is going to get interesting...
12:02<StuartL>Erm, don't have a working keyboard.
12:02<StuartL>That's not good.
12:03<StuartL>TTY switching doesn't work and num lock isn't responding.
12:03<hardwired>no, you need it to set up myth. you can ditch it after everything works though
12:03<Chutt>rkulagow, could try increasing the timeout amount
12:03<hardwired>StuartL: just a guess, did you use ctrl-alt-f1 or so to switch?
12:03<StuartL>Ok, I have no keyboard and no mouse.
12:04<StuartL>hardwired: I tried that, yeah.
12:04*StuartL tries control-alt-backspace
12:04<hardwired>StuartL: ah ok. just thought you tried alt-f1 only cause that's how one does it without x :)
12:04<StuartL>Nope, eevn that doesn't work.
12:04<StuartL>I dunno whether X has crashed or whether it's just the keyboard interface.
12:05<StuartL>Nope, X is fine.
12:06<StuartL>I'll try a reboot with a PS/2 mouse installed, BRB.
12:06<rkulagow>chutt: i was thinking of that. the master backend is a p3-733 with gobs of ram. it's curious that something "lately" has pushed it over the edge. returning from watching a recording back to the "watch recordings" screen can take >20 seconds. i hate not knowing why something is happening...
12:09<kvandivo>frontend is beefy?
12:09=virzyz [] quit (Connection timed out)
12:09<kvandivo>it takes my xbox a while to do that (recording back to 'watch') but i've always blamed that on the frontend swapping
12:10<rkulagow>frontend is a p4 2.4Ghz with 512MB. it's not really doing anything else.
12:11<kvandivo>i'd say that's beefy enough. :)
12:12<Chutt>certainly should be
12:12<rkulagow>aggh, got to eat and clean mouse shit out of the garage. how's that for an afternoon?
12:13<Chutt>i get to do framing in the basement
12:13<Chutt>much more exciting
12:14<kvandivo>you really need to be leaning on your wife to get a projector for your new basement..
12:16<godless>qustion : how do I tune/get channels for PAL pvr 350 ?
12:19<StuartL>hardwired: When setting the capture stuff in mythsetup what should I set for the audio recording device? I don't really want it to be dsp, do I? That's the motherboard sound card...
12:22=dopez [] quit ("...")
12:22<abhi>is there any way to use an all-in-wonder card? (i know it doesnt have a full v4l interface and all)
12:24<hardwired>StuartL: dunno... does the doc say anything about it?
12:25<StuartL>Not that I can find :(
12:25<hardwired>StuartL: i set up alsa and use alsa for everything but mythmusic. though i did not set up tv, so i dunno what tv uses
12:26<sfr>StuartL: set it to none when using a pvr250/350 card
12:26<StuartL>sfr: Excellent, thanks.

12:31<hardwired>anyone ever noticed that the garbled screen that myth presents after watching a video is only garbled as long as no tv has been watched before?
12:31<hardwired>once you watch tv for a second, the screen will never garble again
12:34<StuartL>Personally I notice that the mythtv setup program is bigger than a normal NTSC picture.
12:34<Rroet>this is brilliant,....
12:34<StuartL>Which is annoying :)
12:34<Rroet>I've just updated to kernel 2.6 with ivtv and all the prebuff pauses dissappear
12:35<hardwired>StuartL: yes... you can resize myth once it's running
12:36<StuartL>hardwired: Myth maybe but I couldn't the setup screen...
12:36<hardwired>StuartL: yes, still worked for me somehow, even if it was annoying.
12:37<StuartL>Oh yeah, I could shuffle the screen around and guess where the buttons were but not handy :)
12:38<hardwired>oh well, you only have to do this once :)

12:45<DJ_Rican>if i install a new hd, mount it, configure myth to the new paths, and move all my video, music, etc files to the new paths, do i have to do anything to the database?
12:47<StuartL>Doubt it, it'll be referencing them by path.
12:47<sfr>DJ_Rican: configuring myth already will 'do anything to the database' so i'd think no.
12:47<StuartL>You might want to restart though, in case anything was open at the time.
12:47<hardwired>sfr: doesnt't that xawtvrc file include frequencies?
12:48<sfr>hardwired: not directly afaik, they are determined through the freqtab + the channelname
12:49<hardwired>sfr: what freqtable?
12:49<sfr>hardwired: europe-west in my case
12:49<sfr>hardwired: in the global section
12:49<hardwired>sfr: that is standard for every country in europe-west?
12:50<StuartL>Yay. mythbackend running.
12:50<StuartL>hardwired: How do I get X to run mythfrontend correctly (right window geometry, run on startup etc)?
12:50<sfr>hardwired: i don't know. i'm in germany using cable-tv
12:51<sfr>hardwired: don't you have a channels table from your tv provider?
12:52<hardwired>StuartL: go into setup/appearance and set windo geometry. on gentoo, i made an rc script that just does a startx as my mythtv user, and that user has mythfrontend in his ~/.xinitrc
12:52<hardwired>sfr: yes, but it looks different from yours:

13:14<ShockValue>hi all, where are 'videos' put into playlists? when i go to browse videos, they are all in playlist 1,2,3,4 but not on playlist 0.. which is inconvenient since mythvideo starts on playlist 0 by default.
13:15<ShockValue>ooooo.... just dawned on me.. is PL = parantel level, and not playlist? :)
13:16<ShockValue>the question remains though... video browser starts on "PL 0" and i dont see an option to put my video's on PL0

13:18<thor_>parental level
13:18<thor_>hit 1, 2, 3, 4
13:19<ShockValue>ok, but can i make the VideoBrowser start on 1,2,3, or 4 instead of 0?
13:19<thor_>yup, setup Default PL
13:19<hardwired>yeh i want to do that as well
13:19<ShockValue>ah i see, let me try
13:20<ShockValue>hrm.. i set in setup -> video -> general -> 4 - Highest
13:21<ShockValue>(starting parantal level that is)
13:21=holger [] quit ("Client exiting")
13:21<thor_>mmm k
13:21<ShockValue>but when i go into browse video's, it starts at PL 0
13:22<ShockValue>(i dont have kids or porn, so i dont really care about video level filtering)
13:22<thor_>Browser or Tree or both ?
13:23<ShockValue>it says PL 0 in Tree, but im able to see all my movies there.
13:23<ShockValue>umm actually, weird
13:23<thor_>don't know how you got it to zero
13:23<ShockValue>whatever PL level I am, is how many copies of the movies show up... so if I am at PL=3 in the TRee view, i see 3 copies of each video
13:24<thor_>go into manager ?
13:24<ShockValue>yeah, it seems that once i leave PL0, i cant go back to it.
13:25<thor_>sounds like your settings table is bit off
13:25<ShockValue>it just starts at PL0 in browse and tree.
13:25<thor_>try this:
13:25<thor_>mysql -p -u mythtv mythconverg
13:26<pahli_bar>ooh wow. qglwidget doesn't like being deleted on close
13:26<ShockValue>thor_ ok, that took me into mysql.. nowwhat?
13:26<thor_>one sec ...
13:26<thor_>trying to find the thing ...

13:29<ShockValue>flood to you in private
13:29<thor_>that's odd

13:42<pahli_bar>a simple way to test batteries to put the +ve against your tongue and complete the circuit by touching the -ve end. a slight metallic tingle will indicate battery is live
13:42<pahli_bar>obviously not recommended for anything greater than 1.5v
13:43<thor_>ShockValue, mystery to me, that version are you running
13:43<kvandivo>i've been trying to come up with a way that i can manually discharge my laptop battery without having it explode on me

14:49<Hymie>mikegrb: no, since it doesn't say -dev anywhere, I didn't know that ;) Anyhow, myself, another user, and someone on the mailing list seem to be having this problem. ngrep shows that I'm communicating with fine, but that mythtv isn't parsing things. I suppose I could take my question to the ml, but even if this is a dev channel, perhaps this be relevant info?

14:51<Hymie>mikegrb: oh, I see. You've never seen a person working on a problem, unless it is a dev channel, is that it?

14:53<chiphead>rkulagow, yes I noticed a longer delay as well
14:53-Hymie [] left #mythtv ()
14:55<rkulagow>hrmm. time to diff CVS and at least 5 JAN CVS and see what's changed. mark rote has a p3-866, i've got a p3-733. chiphead: what do you have on the mysql box?
14:55<sfr>rkulagow: what timeout have you been talking with Chutt about earlier?
14:56<rkulagow>sfr: the timeout i was getting was on the frontend after the QUERY_RECORDINGS Play. readstring would timeout, and the frontend would decide that the backend was gone, even though it wasn't.
14:57<rkulagow>i haven't actually checked any values in the code because i've been working in the garage, and the masterbackend is down now because i have to move it from where it was sitting before.
14:58<sfr>rkulagow: i'm also seeing frequent timeouts on the frontend. Selecting backend-related options (live-tv etc.) a 2nd time works usually
14:58<rkulagow>occasionally, the "watch recordings" _wouldn't_ timeout and i'd be able to start watching something. but there's an async update that happens, and so i might be watching and then i'd get a popup saying that it had lost the connection to the backend. anyway, others are seeing it, so that helps at least. i've got to go though...
14:59<sfr>rkulagow: sure
15:00<chiphead>rkulagow, I have also notices a longer delay after picking a recording to play and the start of the video. Prolly all related
15:02=dilate [] quit (Remote closed the connection)
15:07<rkulagow>ok, diffing to 6 days ago gives me 12000 lines, much of which is my docs. cutting that makes it 3600, a lot of which looks like a ffmpeg resync, so at least there's somewhere to start looking.
15:10<godless>anyone here from belgium ?
15:10<rkulagow>mythbackend/mainserver looks like it's had some interesting changes. might be the place to start looking...
15:13<thor_>the threadpool changes are just from yesterday ... don't know if your problem existed before that
15:15<rkulagow>thor: CVS as of last week was OK; i think it was yesterday that things went south. i am walking away from the keyboard now. must clean garage. bbl.
15:15*kvandivo is tentatively happy that he hasn't updated cvs since day before yesterday.
15:15<rkulagow>once i have time i'll start rolling back day by day and seeing where the change happened. unless someone else with the same problem beats me to it.
15:16<rkulagow>besides, i don't want chutt to yell at us for not even making an attempt to figure out what's wrong. he can be a big meanie in his cvs commit logs.
15:17*kvandivo throws back his head and cackles with insane glee.
15:20<thor_>I would go back to early yesterday ... I still don't really understand that threadpool patch (and it's only a few lines), but I was having problems with some very similar code in the mfd

16:27<faye>that'll be why then
16:27<kvandivo>he's talking as much or more there than he is here, chutt
16:27<Chutt>maybe i should enforce that

16:31<faye>as long as I don't use the PVR350 for recording, X and Playback it's fine. the DVB-T card works great too
16:35<MythMicha>Couple small issues here.... :^( When I boot up my MythBox, I have it set up where the MYTH side of things should be displayed on the TV and the KDE side of things should be on the monitor.. But I get Myth on BOTH... I do have the ' export DISPLAY=:0.1' in mythtv user's .bashrc
16:38<Salec>MythMicha: rather than set up your X screen to be one display (ie having Screen "blah" LeftOf "blah 2" etc)
16:38<Salec>set up x to just have multiple screens that are not relative to each other
16:38<Salec>then just before executing mythfrontend do export DISPLAY=:0.1 (or whatever # your tv is on)
16:39<MythMicha>Salec Can I MSG you my XF86Config?? I thought that is how I had it set up...
16:40<MythMicha>Salec yea that's where I run into issues.. Since my mythfrontend is run from the KDE/Autostart, where exactly do I need to stick that export??

17:27<knight->Chutt, when I finish this auto install theme stuff, I want to have a conversation with you about making MythTV zonable
17:28<knight->sfr, the source code to nsvsc is available, perhaps we can add it in
17:28<knight->nsvsc = nullsoft video shoutcast
17:29<knight->thor, extending the current multizone support (i.e. multiple frontends to a backend) to add realtime synchronization
17:29<knight->thor, i.e. music playing in 4 rooms of a home
17:29<knight->thor, i.e. a video stream playing second for second in multiple rooms of a house, or on multiple tvs
17:30<Chutt>difficult, since every soundcard's crystal is slightly different
17:30<kvandivo>then, people can wear little badges wired with bluetooth and it can sense when you go from room to room and let the music seamlessly follow you
17:31<knight->Chutt, indeed
17:31<knight->kvandivo, exactly
17:31<thor_>there are icecast servers that work right off the soundcard
17:31<sfr>kvandivo: so i can hear the same music on the toilet? great.
17:31<thor_>whatever is going through the souncard is streamed
17:31<Netslayer>can i just add commands to the .lircrc like "config = killall mythfrontend" ???
17:31<knight->Chutt, however, if you can get the stream to each destination at the same time, it's then up to the user to use the same soundcards
17:31<Netslayer>after I map a button?
17:31<Chutt>'same' soundcards? :p
17:32<Chutt>every crystal is slightly different, regardless of brand
17:32<Chutt>model, etc
17:32<knight->but you should still be able to sync it close enough by ear
17:32<Chutt>not if the songs are very long
17:33<knight->the differences will start to show
17:33<knight->but cant we write an algorithm to "reset" the sync?
17:33<Chutt>you _can_ do it, you just have to constantly correct
17:33<Chutt>it's difficult, is all
17:34<knight->maybe we can talk a little more about it later

17:34<knight->but i think it would be useful

17:47<Netslayer>easier to re=install stuff, especially with gentoo :-)
17:48<tdb30_>Yeah I am seeing child process not existing.
17:54<Netslayer>ur seeing the error, ya that means something screwed up and it's dieing, prob php related, what distro?
17:54<Netslayer>i had mdk at the time

17:57<Netslayer>that distro drove me crazy
17:57<Netslayer>good to learn on though
17:58<Netslayer>gentoo, i give it an emerge command and it's setup, who says it's hard to use

18:02<jbeimler>stupid ivtv driver compile question, the Makefile does "include $(KERNELDIR)/.config" which causes make to die. can I just comment out that line?

18:24<Netslayer>so do any of u guys have scripts or commands added to .lircrc to bind to a key?
18:25<Netslayer>i'm wondering how to do that, when i do like config = killall mythfrontend and irxevent dies when it starts
18:27<tdb30_>Yes I do
18:28<tdb30_>you need to run irexec -d
18:28<tdb30_>then you need to have your lircrc file changed for the key like this
18:28<Netslayer>can that run alongside irxevent?
18:28<tdb30_>remote = remote name
18:28<tdb30_>button = button on remote
18:28<tdb30_>prog = irexec
18:29<tdb30_>repeat = what ever repat value you use if any
18:29<Netslayer>auh, cool, can the remote there be the same as the one used in other places in the .lircrc
18:29<tdb30_>config = put your command here
18:29<tdb30_>and yes irxec works along side irxevent if you need to use both.
18:29<jbeimler>hooboy. first load of ivtv locked up the box.
18:29<tdb30_>you can assign a button on a remote that you use elsewhare in lircrc
18:29<Netslayer>cool, hmm don't have irxec
18:30<Netslayer>:-) thank you
18:31<tdb30_>I used it to do a tivo type thumbs up down.
18:32<Netslayer>i want a kill button :-)
18:32<tdb30_>you know.... I need to do a kill and a restart :)
18:33<bitbyte>man i cant wait to get mythTV-sbox going
18:37<Salec>xbox doesn't have a tuner
18:37<Salec>so how can you do any livetv, recording etc. on it?
18:40<bitbyte>front end only
18:48<jbeimler>I thought a front end could still grab tv from a back end?

23:44<Salec_>dma read erros
23:44Irssi:Join to #mythtv was synced in 14 secs
23:44<DJ_Rican>how can i fix my mythfilldatabase... it's showing wrong programs....
23:48<Salec_>hm n/m
23:49<Salec_>is there anyway to lighten the dma load in mythtv?
23:49<Salec_>i get dma read errors about every 30 seconds
23:49<Chutt>are you _still_ yammering about ivtv problems in here?
23:49<Salec_>i'm yammering about mythtv probs
23:50<Chutt>dma read errors?
23:50<Salec_>is there anyway to turn on/off the ring buffer
23:50<Chutt>err, that's the ivtv driver, smart guy
23:50<Salec_>the ring buffer is giving my the dma errors
23:50<Salec_>not the ivtv driver
23:50<Chutt>harddrive writes?
23:50<Chutt>i doubt that.
23:50<Chutt>coupled with the ivtv driver
23:50*Salec_ has a VIA KT133 chipset :(
23:50<Chutt>which is doing many, many dmas per second.
23:50<Chutt>good choice in motherboards.
23:51<DJ_Rican>Chutt: is there a way to either repair the program guide or re-create it?
23:51<Salec_>i use my good stuff for machines that will be used for other than mythtv :)
23:51<Chutt>dj_rican, sure
23:51<DJ_Rican>chutt: how?
23:51<Chutt>salec_, search the ivtv docs/mailing list for problems with kt133 chipsets.
23:51<Salec_>anywho is there anyway to pause unpause the ring buffer?
23:51<Chutt>dj_rican, say yes to the second question setup asks/
23:52<Chutt>salec, that question makes absolutely no sense.
23:52<DJ_Rican>ok... i run mythsetup?
23:52<Salec_>mythtv buffers all thte data it gets so that you can pause and rewind
23:52<Chutt>it does?
23:52<Chutt>i didn't know that
23:52<Salec_>i want it to only start buffering when i pause it
23:52<Salec_>rather than all the time
23:53<Chutt>you can't do that
23:53<Chutt>that would be moronically stupid.
23:53<Chutt>think about it.
23:53<Salec_>writing to the hardrive the entire time you are watching tv is moronically stupid
23:53<Salec_>or perhaps have a method in which you can enable the buffer in a menu
23:53<Salec_>that way when you are watching a show that you want the ability to rewind (sports) you can do it
23:54<Salec_>otherwise oyu arn't writing to the hardrive all the time
23:54<Chutt>buy a non-shitty motherboard.
23:54<Salec_>even w/o the errors i just don't like how it's writing to the hardrive all the time
23:54<Salec_>that could wear out the drive
23:54<Chutt>wear out the drive?
23:54<cmorgan>your os is supposed to buffer that data you know
23:55<cmorgan>the os does caching of data usually
23:55<cmorgan>and writes in big chunks
23:55<Salec_>cmorgan: not with my card
23:55<cmorgan>and you'll probably never wear out that drive ;-)
23:55<Chutt>cmorgan, i sync to disk every second
23:55<cmorgan>Chutt: ahh
23:55<Chutt>to deal with vm bugs that cache too much
23:55<Chutt>and then write to disk all in one big chunk
23:56<Chutt>which tends to screw things up rather badly
23:56<DJ_Rican>chutt: what is the command to bring up the config again?
23:56<Chutt>dj_rican, you've run it, you know what it is.
23:56<DJ_Rican>chutt: if i could remember it, i wouldn't be asking....
23:57<cmorgan>the life restriction on those drives is typically the heads
23:57<cmorgan>so yeah, if you keep writing for a long time you'll eventually wear it out, maybe 3 years or so minimum
23:58<Salec_>yea...i don't intend on turning off myth tv all thte time
23:58<Salec_>i'd rather have it run all the time
23:58<Salec_>and then just turn on/off my tv
23:59<Chutt>what's the point of having a pvr, then, if you're not watching recordings?
23:59<Salec_>i am watching recordings
