00:00<Salec_>so wait
00:00<Salec_>if i'm watching livetv
00:00<Salec_>and it comes time for a recording
00:00<Salec_>what will happen?
00:00<Chutt>it'll ask you if it can record
00:00<Chutt>then go and record it
00:01<Salec_>so i have to be there to say yes
00:01<DJ_Rican>if you don't answer, it will record it
00:01<Chutt>you do lose your pre-roll time, though
00:01<Chutt>if you do it that way
00:01<DJ_Rican>and change the live view to the program recording
00:03<DJ_Rican>chutt: in order for me to see program guide category colors, etc... I have to theme myhttv?
00:03<Chutt>unless you've turned some default settings off.
00:05<mchou>hey chutt, is commercial flagging strictly a "post-process" regardless of HW or SW encode now? I seem to recall in earlier myth versions commercial flaggin for SW encode was "in-line...."
00:05<Chutt>it does blank-frame detection for sw encoding while it records
00:06<Chutt>but it'll still run through afterwards for the scene change detection
00:08<mchou>oh, ok. So "Blank frames" selection implies it will do *both* blank frame and scene change detection, correct?
00:08<Chutt>i dunno
00:08<Chutt>ask captain_murdoch when he's around, really

00:58<ShockValue>ok, maybe someone has an answer for a very strange problem. I am using mplayer for DVD and VOB playback through mythtv
00:58<ShockValue>when i boot using my monitor, -vo xv looks fine. when i boot with my monitor AND TV, -vo xv looks fine. but when i boot with JUST my TV hooked up, -vo xv has a bright blue line across the top of the screen when playing movies in full screen
01:02<DJ_Rican>fu...!!!! i just screwed up my database... can someone post the field labels of the program table?
01:02<eecshate>can anyone tell me what the output device handle is for the pvr350?
01:03<ShockValue>DJ_Rican: perhaps : mysql < mc.sql ?
01:05<DJ_Rican>no such file....
01:12<DJ_Rican>it says can't create database... database exisst

08:51<MythMicha>Guten morgen.. ;)
08:51<HenkPoley>Thank you pahli_bar
08:51<HenkPoley>Guten morgen MythMicha
08:52<MythMicha>I found a module that allows Myth to connect to a TIVO and play the TIVO data thru the Myth.. Has anyone played with this??
08:52<HenkPoley>Ist es nicht ein bisschen spaet fuer morgen?
08:52<sfr>Hier schon
08:52<HenkPoley>MythMicha, I heard of it before
08:53<HenkPoley>I believe some people use it, there's some site of a guy with an Asus Pundit that tries to use it
08:53<HenkPoley>Google for it if you want
08:54<StuartL>Has anyone found a way of changing the window size of the myth configuration tool?
08:54<StuartL>I know you can do it for mythfrontend...
08:54<MythMicha>OK kewl.. yea I just got it.. Was wondering what the skinny is on it as far as how good it is.. It says it works with Myth0.11... So
08:54<hardwired>StuartL: i configured by moving the myth setup window around
08:55<pahli_bar>StuartL: hmm. i think the setup tool window is fixed to the size of your desktop.
08:55<hardwired>StuartL: alt-click into the window and then move it. annoying, but works
08:55<StuartL>Alt-click - good idea, hadn't thought of that.
08:55<StuartL>I was restricted to finding the title bar by guesswork :)
08:55<StuartL>It's all configured now but it could be a nice improvement for future releases :)
08:56<pahli_bar>StuartL: whats wrong with it currently?
08:57<StuartL>pahli_bar: The TV Out on the PVR-350 overscans the TV by a LOT. If the mythsetup util sizes itself according to the desktop size significant portions of the window are invisible.
08:57<StuartL>You can work around it by moving the window around but it's very awkward and requires some guesswork as to the location of the 'next' and 'back' buttons etc.
08:58<pahli_bar>you are talking about the x setup not the tvout. so you should fix the overscan/x11 issues first before trying to setup myth
08:59<StuartL>I can't sort out the overscan, the card doesn't seem to have any setting to adjust it.
08:59<StuartL>Is there an override I can put into X11 to work around it?
09:01<pahli_bar>somebody with a pvr350 should be able to answer that. i have only a pvr250 :(
09:02<StuartL>I like the card a lot.
09:02<hardwired>StuartL: just set it up using alt-click and be done with it
09:02<StuartL>The quality of the picture is astonishing.
09:02<StuartL>hardwired: Heh :)
09:02<StuartL>hardwired: I'm investigating whether the framebuffer device honours the dotclock/htimings etc in XF86Config.
09:03<StuartL>I'm curious if I can adjust it manually.
09:03<pahli_bar>StuartL: if its x11 running on framebuffer it should respect xf86config setup
09:03<MythMicha>StuartL Lemme know what you find.. I am having the same issues... I thought it was the ###x### setting in XF86Config
09:04<StuartL>MythMicha: I have a dual standard TV (NTSC and PAL), it seems to happen on both.
09:05<StuartL>MythMicha: Besides, the width is as much of a problem as the height and NTSC is the same width as PAL.
09:08<MythMicha>My issue might be centered around the fact I have a TV on the PVR350 and a monitor on my GEForce4 card
09:08<MythMicha>It's been a lower priority then some other issues I have been addressing...
09:09*StuartL nods, this is more annoying than anything else.
09:09<StuartL>It's driving me mad :)
09:11+poo [] joined #MythTV
09:12<MythMicha>Stuart Com'on Be honest... It's not a drive.. It's more of a short walk, right? :)
09:13<MythMicha>It would have to be for anyone that wanted to tackle Myth :)
09:13<MythMicha>I know that I have been having a great time with it. :)
09:15*StuartL laughs
09:16<StuartL>I'm trying to decode the framebuffer.txt file in the kernel docs atm :)
09:18<pahli_bar>StuartL: you are looking in the wrong place. if i understand correct, x11 runs on ivtv framebuffer for pvr350. you should be looking at x11 configurations
09:30<StuartL>pahli_bar: I am :)
09:30<StuartL>pahli_bar: I'm using the framebuffer.txt file to understand what those timing specs in XF86Config mean for a framebuffer :)

10:05<jmblack>Im having a problem compiling mythmusic with fftw on..."visualize.h:21:19: rfftw.h: No such file or directory" and its true rfftw.h definately does not exist, hints?
10:06<pahli_bar>jmblack: install fftw development package
10:06<jmblack>1st thought was that it was included with fftw-devel, but that hasnt seemed to help ;(
10:06<jmblack>what dir needs to be in the include path? or now do I find out...
10:06<jmblack>err how to I find out
10:06<pahli_bar>jmblack: what distro
10:06<jmblack>fedora ;)
10:07<pahli_bar>jmblack: try locate rfftw.h
10:07<jmblack>nada, nothing returned when I type "locate rfftw.h"
10:08<jmblack>which is the root of the evil Im thinking :p
10:08<pahli_bar>jmblack: try rpm -ql fftw-devel
10:09<jmblack>ok, lots of files listed... browsing through them I do not see rfftw.h at all...
10:10<jmblack>closest thing would be /usr/share/doc/fftw-devel-3.0.1/html/rfftwnd.png
10:10<pahli_bar>jmblack: that is funny which version of fftw do you have
10:10<jmblack>its the only file with r before fftw
10:10<pahli_bar>ah. there's the problem you need fftw 2.1.x not 3.x
10:10<jmblack>its showing 3.01
10:10<jmblack>err 3.0.1
10:10<jmblack>should I have installed the 2.xx branch?
10:17<jmblack> :) its compiling now...

10:20<jmblack>woot, visulizations...
10:44<beetle110>where can I find information on setting up transcoding?
10:44<beetle110>I have it (kinda) working.
10:44<beetle110>but it doesn't seem to be working properly.
10:45<beetle110>the video's that get transcoded aren't very good quality(probably a setting), and they will freeze when I watch them. I can ff past the freezing point and it plays for a little while, then freezes again.
10:45<jmblack>the only information Ive seen is the small blurb in the how-to that Geoff threw together
10:46<beetle110>in the documentation?
10:46<jmblack>beetle110, Geoff has steadily been improving transcoding, are you running .13 or cvs?
10:46<jmblack>yes, the documentation on the website
10:47<beetle110>I'll update cvs.
10:47<beetle110>mine was checked out last monday.
10:47<jmblack>hrm, it seems like hes released an update just afew days ago... Im not certain that the update had made it into cvs yet though....
10:47<jmblack>you may want to check the cvs commits list
10:47<beetle110>will do, thanks.
10:48<jmblack>in order to enable ALSA sound support I have to recompile mythtv correct?
10:49<beetle110>jmblack: I didn't
10:49<jmblack>does mythmusic work with ALSA support enabled?
10:49<jmblack>yeah, but its using OSS compatibility mode otherwise, iirc
10:49<beetle110>I did do that.
10:50<HenkPoley>Little question, how do you add someone to a group? (henk to video)
10:50<jmblack>if you watch mythfrontend startup it says "Opening OSS audio device '/dev/dsp'" here... and I'd like it to use ALSA instead.. though Im kinda wondering if the other modules will freak out :)
10:51<beetle110>HenkPoley, man groupadd
10:52<jmblack>HenkPoley, what distro? in fedora (redhat) you can use Red hat User manager... cute lil GUI
10:52<beetle110>to create the groupe
10:53<beetle110>then you use -G with useradd to add the user to the group.
10:53<beetle110>example useradd beetle -G video
10:53<jmblack>My reciever (DirectTV) takes about 2 seconds to switch to the correct channel. So all my recordings have 1 or 2 seconds at the beginning where the channel is wrong
10:54<HenkPoley>the group video already exists (in /dev/v4l/* )
10:54<jmblack>is their a simple 'wait x seconds' before recording setting that Im missing?
10:55<HenkPoley>"usermod -G video henk" does the trick I think
10:57<HenkPoley>WTF? I can't login as root on an xconsole?

11:19<brunes_kopete>hrmm... brb
11:20<brunes_kopete>eah found it
11:25<brunes_kopete>you know what would be cool to add to mythweb? The ability to take either a file, or one of your playlists, and click "Stream" so you could stream it over shoutcast or something
11:25<Chutt>someone's asking for a kicking
11:25<brunes_kopete>oh shit the red
11:25<brunes_kopete>i keep forgetting about that
11:29<MythMicha>I thought of a kewl new feature for Myth. Or maybe it's already there... The ability to pause Live TV and save the pause as a jpg.
11:30<pahli_bar>MythMicha: code away
11:30<MythMicha>hehehehe Me?? I am still trying to figure out why my Vic-20 programs don't run... :)
11:34<thor_>Chutt, how goes the framing ?
11:39<StuartL>MythMicha: That's just screencap, though?
11:39<StuartL>MythMicha: Be more useful to have time-delay recording :)
11:39<Chutt>didn't get much done yesterday
11:39<Chutt>too much other crap to do
11:39<thor_>wood or those new metal stud thingies
11:40<MythMicha>StuartL yea, just a screen cap... :)
11:40<StuartL>MythMicha: You been watching porn again?
11:40<StuartL>Handy debug tool, actually.
11:40<StuartL>"Look what it looks like"
11:40<brunes_kopete>StuartL: Time-delay recording? what does that mean?
11:41<MythMicha>Porn?? Naaaw, I can't watch it unless the wife is there.. It's a rule :)
11:41<StuartL>brunes_kopete: I dunno if that's the real phrase, the one where you pause a live feed and it captures the live feed to disk. When you unpause it starts reading from a disk ring-buffer which it's also recording the TV to.
11:41<StuartL>Erm, that was an awful description.
11:41<MythMicha>But of course, the wife can watch Porn with her girlfriends any times she wants to.. Go figger.. hehehehehe
11:41<StuartL>That's what it's called.
11:42=MythMicha [] quit (Read error: 54 (Connection reset by peer))
11:42<brunes_kopete>StuartL: Wha? You can already do that can you not? At least,thats what happens when I hit pause..
11:42*StuartL doesn't know.
11:43*StuartL shrugs.
11:43<StuartL>Haven't got that far yet :)
11:43<StuartL>If it works then "w00t" :)
11:46<pahli_bar>Chutt: should i make opengl slideshow transitions compile-time choosable?
11:47<jmblack>pahli_bar, opengl is compile time choosable in mythmusic, Id imagine doing so in the photo browser would be the nice thing to do.
11:47<pahli_bar>okey-dokey. off to reading some shell-script based configure's
11:48<jmblack>mythmusic might be the place to start, sence it also deals with opengl :)
11:48<thor_>pahli_bar, there very simple, spit out a file with a #define line or two, then have the compile code include those files, nothing to it
11:49<Chutt>they don't test for lib presense or anything =)
11:49<thor_>as someone _despises_ autoconf
11:49<pahli_bar>one problem with the opengl based slideshows is that they can't be mixed with the current singleview.
11:49<pahli_bar>they have to be in a separate window altogether
11:51<jmblack>one rather small improvement Id like to see in released versions.... demo pictures / music shipped with the release so people can see that it is working before they have a chance to populate those directories.
11:51<jmblack>it would add a little shine to an already great package :)

11:52<jmblack>of course on the music side you'd have to find an open source / free ogg or mp3
11:52<thor_>pahli_bar, I was thinking about a Digital Imap Access/Transfer Protocol, and most things are easy. items (pictures) and containers (slideshow "playlists"). We would, however, need some kind of namespace or labelling methodology for transitions (and possibly accompanying audio). Just thinking out loud ...
11:52<jmblack>pahli_bar, its not a time issue ;) its a polish issue ;) assume people are dumb, and then less people will assume the program isnt working ;)
11:53<pahli_bar>jmblack: that is the problem. setting up myth is not for dumb people
11:53<jmblack>and that attitude will keep it that way for far too long ;(
11:54<eecshate>anyone know what the device for output is on my pvr250?
11:54<eecshate>anyone know what the device for output is on my pvr350?
11:55<jmblack>its in the docs iirc, I dont have a pvr350...
11:55<Chutt>there's a very nice howto for setting up the pvr-350 in the ivtv wiki.
11:55<pahli_bar>thor_: sounds like an xml kinda protocol
11:56<jmblack>isnt their an xmlish protocol already for digital media? some russian breed protocol.. I really wish I could remember the naem about now...
11:57<thor_>I dunno .... just some way for one machine to say "switch from this picture to that picture with __this__ transition" .... still plan to dig into how iPhoto does it (if iPhoto doe sin fact do it)
11:57<pahli_bar>thor_: i'm not sure iphoto has networking capability.
11:57<thor_>you can "share picutres" via Rendezvous
11:57<thor_>just not sure what that entails yet
11:58<pahli_bar>thor_: it could be something like <ss><itemlist><item>..</item>...</itemlist><music></music></ss>
11:59<rkulagow>chutt: have you had a chance to spend any cycles on the mysql CPU hogging issue?
11:59<thor_>yup, something like that .... anyway, as I say, just thinking out loud .... but while you're doing the transitions stuff, you may want to keep in mind that at some point they might need to be described over the wire
12:00<pahli_bar>thor_: no problem at all. i already have "named" slideshows and it should be very easy to access them by name.
12:00<pahli_bar>thor_: itemlist too...
12:00<pahli_bar>thor_: only thing missing is audio playback
12:01<Chutt>rkulagow, i'm about to commit a fix, actually
12:01<Chutt>just making sure it compiles
12:01<Chutt>audio playback will come with mfd =)
12:02<rkulagow>cool. i'm looking at the protocol.txt file that someone has figured out for the hauppauge MVP. at $99, it's even cheaper than an xbox... (although it'll only do mpeg-1/2, MP3 and not DivX, etc apparently)
12:03<Chutt>yeah, those looked interesting
12:03<Chutt>if i had more time for stuff, i'd get one, but =)
12:07<Chutt>rkulagow, try current CVS for the mysql fix
12:07<PhracturedBlue>Chutt, I need a way to temporarily store the keyframe map after transcoding to mpeg2 (before the backend replaces the file). I could do it with a temp file or with a new table. Any preference?
12:08<rkulagow>beautiful. click on MVP from the hauppauge home page -> 404

12:10<rkulagow>huh. changes on the cvs server? "cannot open directory /var/lib/mythcvs/mythtv/libs/libvbitext: No such file or directory"
12:11<Chutt>just delete that from your local dir
12:11<Chutt>that changed when i redid the library stuff a week or so ago
12:11<rkulagow>ah. i think hauppauge has someone in IRC - they just fixed their 404. :)
12:12<rkulagow>hey, hauppauge: release the protocol spec for the frontend/backend on the MVP, and give tmk a non-NDA datasheet for the PVR-250/350 and fix the firmware issues.
12:13<rkulagow>anyone have any other requests?
12:13+bdale [] joined #mythtv
12:13<sfr>no way
12:14<thor_>put out a mini-ITX form factor motherboard with two 350-style encoders on the board a 350-style decoder w/ TV-out on the board as well.
12:15<jmblack>rkulagow, afaik hauppauge does not actually produce any hardware, they usually buy chips from other manufacturers.... you may want to pose those questions to conextant :)
12:15<rkulagow>thor: sure. shall i tell them that you'll be purchasing in lots of 10000?
12:16<thor_>heh, no ... 1,000,000 minimum I would think
12:16<rkulagow>jmblack: well, they can certainly fill in some of the gaps on the MVP protocol since i'm pretty sure they made the software...
12:16<Chutt>they've said they have no intention of supporting linux on the mvp
12:17<jmblack>rkulagow, maybe, I would seriously doubt it though
12:17<Chutt>or at least, i thought i read that
12:17<rkulagow>maybe i can get flextronics to make some. i remember an article in wired that talked how flextronics was the manufacturer of the original versions of the xbox...
12:17<thor_>I think flextronics makes just about everything
12:18<thor_>oh, that mb should have in-built 802.11g with fully supported Linux drivers as well :-)
12:19<thor_>s/pdiff out the back
12:19<rkulagow>also, don't forget that it needs pal / secam / ntsc
12:19<thor_>yup, yup
12:20<Chutt>all i want is a case for an epia-m that has enough room for a dvd-rom, a pvr-350, and a -250.
12:20*bdale notes that there's very little more frustrating than having your new HDTV rear-projection set arrive and get unboxed... two hours before you have to leave for the airport for a week of international business travel...
12:20<rkulagow>chutt: docs sync please.
12:21<bdale>while you're talking about ITX cases, anyone have a recommendation for a cheap/small box that would hold a Nehemiah board and work well as a very minimal frontend box?
12:21<Chutt>all the mini-itx cases i've seen suck.
12:21<bdale>me too
12:22<thor_>or are _really_ expensive (hush)
12:22<bdale>it's about enough to get me bending sheet metal...
12:22<bdale>I'd love to have 2-3 units of something that's just a nehemiah board, no need for drives of any type or glitz of any type, though a front-panel 2-line LCD display I can drive wouldn't suck
12:23<thor_>VFD, gotta be VFD
12:23<rkulagow>hrmm. without actually seeing it, it appears from the description of the buttons on the remote of the MVP that it's the silver one that comes with the PVR-250/350's. anyone know for sure?
12:23<bdale>I don't mind VFD, but I happen to have a big box of assorted LCD displays, so if I'm bending metal at home I'm likely to be cheap and just use them

12:26<rkulagow>chutt: haven't seen a commit message for the mysql fix - laggy mailing list?
12:27<rkulagow>ah, ok.
12:28<PhracturedBlue>Can someone tell me what 'MARK_GOP_BYFRAME' implies? It appears to mean that frame numbers (rather than key frame numbers) are used in recordedmarkup. yes/no?
12:28<Chutt>dvb and hdtv cards
12:29<Chutt>dropped packets and such mean that gops aren't going to be evenly sized
12:29<Chutt>so, better to go by frame number instead of by gop number for those
12:29<PhracturedBlue>yeah. well in my transcoded files, I don't gaurantee an even spacing of gop frames (due to pruning 'b' frames after a cut)
12:30<Chutt>it'd probably be a good idea to convert even pvr-250 recordings over to that
12:30<PhracturedBlue>however, I could leave the frames, and mark the gop 'broken' then the frames WOULD be evenly spaced.
12:30<Chutt>rkulagow, sendmail was hung up on some idiot running their own (misconfigured) mailserver
12:30<Chutt>phracturedblue, ah
12:31<PhracturedBlue>I guess I'll try using MARK_GOP_BYFRAME, as it is more flexible.
12:33<rkulagow>chutt: ok
12:34<rkulagow>circuit city webiste shows the MVP - it's the same silver remote as on the 250/350's.
12:35<rkulagow>why would someone spend $35 for a 4 year "protection plan" on a piece of computer hardware that costs $99?
12:36<thor_>do they offer Scotch Guard on it as well?
12:37<pahli_bar>rkulagow: thats their way of making money
12:37*pahli_bar realizes that rkulagow is being sarcastic
12:39<rkulagow>i don't think i'd do so good in retail. i was in radio shack, and the counter person convinced an older woman that she needed the $15 protection plan on a $20 trimline touch tone phone.

15:00<rkulagow>the only way to record is to go livetv->record what i'm watching, but exiting live tv exits the recording as well.

16:19<eecshate>mdz: well it could be automatically done by myth or it could be expected to be done during system startup. thats all i'm asking
16:21<mdz>it would be pretty weird for mythtv to ask you which input to record from, and then expect you to set the input on the card
16:22<eecshate>agreed, but when things don't work such questions are reasonable

17:19<rkulagow>for mpeg files, is there still a full mythtv .NUV header, or are you just dumping bytes?

17:31<Chutt>it's a totally separate project

20:19<SuperID>kudos to the ivtv team, they turned around support for the new subsystem ids in about 4 hours
20:19<billytwowilly>That's a nice tidbit of info.
20:19<SuperID>it's an awesome card
20:19-loebrich [] left #mythtv ()
20:19<billytwowilly>so they are all supported once again?
20:19<billytwowilly>Yah, my ati tv wonder is on its last legs..
20:19<SuperID>as far as I know yes.
20:19<CaptBubba>does anyone have any clue why mythtv doesn't want to record video? Besides my computer hating me, of course
20:19<billytwowilly>as it ages the picture gets fuzzier and fuzzier. it's almost at the level where my tolerance gives out on some channels;)
20:19<SuperID>capt: you can watch live tv fine?
20:20<CaptBubba>yes, and pause, skip ahead and back
20:20<CaptBubba>both with the default codec and mpeg4

20:20<billytwowilly>are you recording with the same setting as livetv?
20:20<CaptBubba>I think so, let me check
20:20<billytwowilly>if you changed the settings for livetv but record with the default settings you might have probs..
20:21<pmowry>CaptBubba: yeah, Was about to ask about your profiles. What card are you using?
20:21<SuperID>I'm not sure, but does livetv spool to the disk in the same loc as recorded video? I've seem some setups that point to /mnt/store and others /var/lib/mythtv
20:21<SuperID>check the rights on both
20:21<billytwowilly>I know I spent a couple weeks trying to track down why I was getting 3.2 GB/hour recordings when my livetv settings should only give about a gig/hour.

20:24<CaptBubba>oh, and mythtv 0.12
20:24<billytwowilly>you did a fresh install but you didn't use latest mythtv?
20:25<CaptBubba>latest was masked by portage, but I could try upgrading. Would I have to redo all my settings?
20:25<billytwowilly>I don't know.
20:25<billytwowilly>But that might solve your problem.
20:25<CaptBubba>let me give it a shot
20:26<billytwowilly>slim chance it will anyway;)
20:26<billytwowilly>if you can watch livetv it probably isn't a problem with drivers.
20:26<CaptBubba>yeah, knowing my luck it will break everything
20:27<billytwowilly>that's quite possible.. you can always just give up and download knoppmyth like I did;)

21:00<newtroot>question: i have a PVR 350 and was wondering about the tv out feature. will i be able to display the different on screen menu's and information using the out on the 350 or do i need regular video card with tv out?
21:01<jbeimler>newtroot: 350 will do it all supposedly
21:02<newtroot>thanks. i have seen some information on tv-out on the pvr 350, and i have it working, but no OSD. and of course when i start myth it runs on my monitor, not tv.
21:03<jbeimler>there appears to be an X driver. someday when I can afford a 350, I hope to give it a try
21:03+bishop [] joined #mythtv
21:04<newtroot>interesting. i will see if i can locate this mystical "x driver"
21:04<CaptBubba>this is the strangest problem I've seen. I know it works, but it is tuanting me
21:05<jbeimler>newtroot: #ivtv-dev is the place to ask

21:16<newtroot>pmowry: thanks.
21:17<_beetle_>is the directory that is supposed to be $QTDIR the directory that contains mkspecs?
21:19<_beetle_>ie if I do an ls $QTDIR should I see mkspecs listed?
21:19<CaptBubba>I think I've figured it out!

22:32<Octane>then after you have configured your lircrc yes it should "magically" work :)
22:32<Octane>did you compile mythtv with native lirc?
22:32<newtroot>haha. okay. yes, i just recompiled +lirc
22:32<Octane>than yah

22:34<Octane>i dont recall having to edit anything in there to get lirc workin
22:34<newtroot>i think it has to do with my pvr350.

22:34<Octane>ohh 350, dunno about them
22:36<newtroot>after making changes to my modules.autoload how can i make the changes take effect without rebooting?
22:36<Octane>rmmod and modprobe?
22:36<newtroot>i dont think that will do it. at least, it didn't last time. and i have already depmod-a
22:40<Octane>you scared to mess things up if you reboot?
22:40<newtroot>no. but i currently have myth running on my server. it means losing net for 1 minute :-)

23:20<Chutt>if something breaks, it's generally asked about pretty quickly on the -dev list =)
23:21<Netslayer>actually i had a weird problem yesterday twice, basicaly the master backend machine just stopped accepting connections, the remote slave, local frontend and everything else trying to get to that machine would fail.

23:30<Netslayer>just plug in a cable say mono out of a 1/8 stereo y adapter, then unmute it in alsamixer? then add some mplayer -ao alsa9:spdif and ac3 checkmark in myth general settings?
23:32<thor_>1/8th to RCA adapter (bought a while ago, but I think the package said s/pdif adapter on it), then the mixer ... I get everything going through the sound card as PCM digital to the receiver
23:33<thor_>and ac3 if I futz with mplayer command lines
23:34<Netslayer>i'm going to give it a try again, testing with like mplayer mp3file -ao alsa9:spdif sounds like a good idea right?
