#mythtv IRC Logs for 2004-01-17

---Logopened Sat Jan 17 00:00:05 2004
00:00<beetle__>I'm trying to install mythtv for the fourth time. I have had it (partially) working on fedora core twice, redhat 9 once, and this time I am trying to install it on SoL-Linux. this will be my masterbackend, and my mysql database. I also want to do most of my transcoding with nuvexport.
00:00<beetle__>However, I am having a hard time believing the documents that I have read so far in regards to the dependencies for mythtv.
00:01<beetle__>It seems to me that 55 packages where downloaded for my redhat, and fedora core machines just to make mythtv work.
00:02<beetle__>Currently I am only interested in the PVR, and transcoding aspect of mythtv, and not so much the other plugins.
00:04<beetle__>I already have lame, xmltv, mysql, ivtv, lirc, and qt installed on my server. What other dependencies will I need to get a functioning transcoding (divx/xvid, vcd, svcd)pvr?
00:11<mdz>Chutt: how's your #ifdef tolerance these days?
00:12<mdz>Chutt: I have a treeful of changes to get things to compile on non-i386
00:12<mdz>Chutt: the worst of it is #ifdefing the MMX stuff in filters/
00:17<NiQo>mdz: I think he has become mostly a liberal on the subject lately, not that I have a voice
00:18<mdz>Chutt: the alternative is to move it into a separate source file and use a qt CONFIG deal to do it

00:28<tmk>Chutt: you around?
00:29<tmk>well i suppose anyone can answer.. is there an issue with mythfrontend where it will only playback once?
00:29<tmk>i have to restart it after playing video or else it just sits there
00:30<thor_>first I've heard of that

00:54<shorawitz>anyone mind if I rant some more!
00:56<shorawitz>trying to get my Hauppauge grey remote to work
00:57<shorawitz>I know the remote's putting out signal, because I see it on my programmable remote
00:58<shorawitz>I started from scratch using myth 0.13 & ivtv 0.1.7
00:58<shorawitz>followed the docs on myth, but they don't quite mesh when it comes down to getting the remote to work
01:10<beetle__>shorawitz: When I followed the instructions here, I got the grey remote working, however I know next to nothing about lirc.

01:14<shorawitz>beetle: what revs are you using?
01:35<beetle__>for what.

01:38<pigeon>hmm is there a way to toggle on and off for mythtv to do buffered video?

04:42<Anoniempje_>Is there a way to reset all hue/color/brightness info of the channels?
04:42<Anoniempje_>And a wy to set it for all of them, and not induvidualy?
04:42Anoniempje_is now known as HenkPoley
04:43<hw_76986>HenkPoley: you can reset them with sql for instance
04:44<HenkPoley>okay, I guess I need to learn SQL
04:44<hw_76986>oh, that's a quick thing
04:45<hw_76986>read parts of the mysql tutorial for instance
04:45<HenkPoley>Kay, I'll look into it
04:45+Octane [] joined #mythtv
04:46<HenkPoley>btw, somebody knows how to get sound working with saa7134 built-in audio device (btaudio alike)
04:46<HenkPoley>I've already got sound from /dev/dsp1 (aplay /dev/dsp1)
04:46<HenkPoley>but well, myth doesn't seem to do anything
04:47<HenkPoley>And the audiocontrols in te settings don't change my alsa mixer, but my soundcard is on /dev/dsp (I'm a bit unsure, but wel..)
04:48<HenkPoley>"but well, myth doesn't seem to do anything" as in doesn't play the sounds :-P
04:49<thor_>you "have sound from /dev/dsp1", but your "soundcard is on /dev/dsp" ?

04:51<HenkPoley2>hi, now at mythbox
04:51<HenkPoley2>mythfrontend, says, "2004-01-17 10:50:03 Opening OSS audio device '/dev/dsp'"
04:51<HenkPoley2>seems wierd, with an alsa card
04:52<thor_>there's no such thing as an "alsa card"
04:52<HenkPoley>I know
04:53<hw_76986>alsa can emulate oss
04:55<thor_>there's no such thing as an oss "card", and there's no such thing as an "alsa" card .... there's hardware, and there's software ... what are you trying to do?
04:56=taco [] quit (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
04:59<HenkPoley2>Okay, sorry I should just have described symptoms
04:59<HenkPoley2>1. no audio in myth 'watch tv'
05:00<HenkPoley2>2. do have audio when running xawtv and 'aplay /dev/dsp1'
05:00<HenkPoley2>3. pundit
05:00<HenkPoley2>4. saa7134 loaded with oss=1 (so /dev/dsp1 is the audio device)
05:00<thor_>hang on (checking my pundit)
05:00<HenkPoley2>4. loaded ALSA
05:00<HenkPoley2>err 5.
05:01<thor_>pundit is i810 audio
05:01<thor_>at least mine
05:02<HenkPoley2>I can hear audio
05:02<HenkPoley2>via xmms with ALSA
05:02<HenkPoley2>and via aplay
05:02<HenkPoley2>so it works, it's just that I'm not really shure it is on /dev/dsp, but what else could it be?
05:02<HenkPoley2>It seems like the alsa congi files bind it to /dev/dsp too
05:03<thor_>sa7xxx is a tuner thing
05:03<HenkPoley2>saa7134 yes
05:03<HenkPoley2>I see video (though candy colours) in mythtv, and see (good coloured) video with xawtv
05:04<HenkPoley2>Cinergy 600 cards
05:04<HenkPoley2>..not plural..
05:04<HenkPoley2>so card
05:05<thor_>I know longer have any idea what you're talking about
05:05<HenkPoley2>the saa7134 is the chip used in my Cinergy 600 card
05:06<HenkPoley2>that is a framegrabber card
05:06<HenkPoley2>just like BTTV
05:06<HenkPoley2>you asked for that, isn't it?
05:07<thor_>and it works in xawtv?
05:07<HenkPoley2>well the video part yes
05:08<thor_>if you can't get sound in xawtv, myth is never going to work
05:08<HenkPoley2>xawtv doesn't know about the /dev/dsp1 from the tv-card
05:08<HenkPoley2>thor_, like I said, runnign 'aply /dev/dsp1' letsd me hear it
05:08<HenkPoley2>so I directly play the device to my soundcard
05:09<thor_>lsmod ?
05:09<HenkPoley2>I setup mythtv (with mythsetup) to read from /dev/dsp1 at 33000
05:09<HenkPoley2> lsmod
05:09<HenkPoley2>Module Size Used by
05:09<HenkPoley2>tuner 14340 0
05:09<HenkPoley2>saa7134 81036 0
05:09<HenkPoley2>video_buf 17792 1 saa7134
05:10<HenkPoley2>..does that help?
05:10<thor_>seems a bit short
05:10<HenkPoley2>I've compiled everyhting in
05:10<HenkPoley2>2.6 kernel
05:11<thor_>that's a bit bleading edge
05:11<HenkPoley2>symptom 6. changing the audiolevels in myth config doesn' t change ALSA mixer settings
05:11<HenkPoley2>symptom 7. Pressing 'F' can't change volume, keeps at 99%
05:12<thor_>moving a potted plant in Istanbul does no re-orient the height of Bush's tie clip
05:13<HenkPoley2>never mind, pff
05:19<HenkPoley2>I just played a video in mythvideo, it has 'candy collors' too. thor_ did you change anything to the gamma settings of the sis driver on your Asus Pundit?
05:20<thor_>stock opensource driver
05:20<thor_>I even paid the guy $10 via paypal
05:20<HenkPoley2>yes, sis from XFree86 (it's now in the tree)
05:21<thor_>it's been awhile

05:24<thor_>sisctrl settings?

10:13<pahli_bar>pcjabber: stop flooding
10:13<pahli_bar>pcjabber: this is either an ivtv or lirc issue.
10:13<pahli_bar>pcjabber: for ivtv see #ivtv-dev
10:14<pahli_bar>pcjabber: for lirc
10:14<pcjabber>ok thanks =)
10:15<pcjabber>sorry about the flooding -- my client does that when i paste multiple lines
10:15<pahli_bar>pcjabber: pasting multiple lines is called flooding
10:15<pahli_bar>there is a #flood for this purpose
10:16<hardwired_>pcjabber: nice answer
10:16<pcjabber>i know, pahli
10:16<pcjabber>i was trying to paste my output results
10:16<pahli_bar>hmm. if you know, why don't you do it right
10:16<pcjabber>to see if anyone else has had the same troubles
10:17<pcjabber>my client sends each line as an individual one
10:17<pcjabber>it is not intentional
10:18<pcjabber>having a bad morning?
10:18<pahli_bar>pcjabber: you make a jackass of yourself and now you are trying to be smart, eh!
10:18<Anoniempje_>hardwired_: (responding to "you can set what size 'big' actually is") changing to big or small doesn't even change the fontsize as far as I can see (and 15 to 26 is a big diff

10:19<pcjabber>pahli, i am just trying to get a little support here
10:19<pcjabber>i know its not a MythTV-specific issu
10:19<pcjabber>I am just trying to find out if anyone else here has had that problem
10:20<hardwired_>pcjabber: so why do you ask it in #mythtv then?
10:20<pahli_bar>pcjabber: this is not the place. there are proper forums for it at mythtv-users mailing lists
10:20<pahli_bar>this is a dev discussion channel
10:20<pcjabber>I am aware of that, that there is a mailing list
10:20<hardwired_>pcjabber: that's like going to a tv shop and asking for tomatos "yeah i know this is a tv shop but i thought you might have tomatoes nonetheless"
10:20<pahli_bar>or if the users want they can create/join a #mythtv-users channel
10:23<pcjabber>now i just need chanop status to it (or something, so I can set status, etc on it)
10:23<hardwired_>pcjabber: this is not an irc channel, this is a channel about mythtv development
10:23*hardwired_ is having some sort of deja vu
10:23<HenkPoley>hey, stop bashing
10:24<hardwired_>ok, i'll stop.
10:24<pahli_bar>pcjabber: you would need to contact freenode to get a channel op privileges (i could be wrong).
10:24<pcjabber>ahh ok
10:24%Netsplit <-> quits: sfr
10:24<pcjabber>how would i go about doing that?
10:24<pahli_bar>pcjabber: also advertise this channel on the mythtv-users mailing lists.

11:27<Chutt>no one ever actually writes anything
11:27<shorawitz>well, I was thinking that a lot of questions/problems seem to pop up due to linux being what it is
11:28<shorawitz>and there are known good combinations for certain things
11:28-curreyr_ [] left #mythtv ()
11:28<Chutt>if you're willing to actually do stuff, talk to rkulagow when he's in here. he's done tha majority of the docs
11:29<shorawitz>I have to think about it, but I think I have the concept in my head. I'm sure there's a lot of people on the list that just want to see the thing work. There's some who buy dedicated hardware (like me) to produce a working system (to whatever extent that is)
11:29<shorawitz>then there's those that like to tinker
11:30<shorawitz>then there's those who just want a system that does everything and they might run into needing more (conflicting) stuff on their box
11:30<hardwired_>argh, mythmusic still sounds awfull

11:32<shorawitz>In looking at the docs, all the examples are a hodge-podge of different distributions of Linux, though I think I see a lot of Mandrake
11:32<sfr>hardwired_: did you try the different decoders or cd playing?
11:32<hardwired_>cd playing is the same
11:32<shorawitz>hw: how about outside of myth
11:33<shorawitz>I had a sound prob like that on Tues, but I can't tell you at the moment how it went away. I've redid my box 3 times since
11:33<hardwired_>mpg321 plays the ame mp3 allright
11:33<pahli_bar>hardwired_: maybe some mixer setting
11:34<shorawitz>it's poping right?
11:34<hardwired_>yes, i also suspect something outside myth because i heard of no one else with that problem
11:35<hardwired_>shorawitz: no, more like scratching
11:35<shorawitz>does sound like mixer then
11:36<pahli_bar>hardwired_: have mythmusic running, play with the mixer (alsamixer, amixer, ...)
11:36<hardwired_>ok, i'll try that

13:38<kvandivo>soundds like something that has been discussed ad infinitum on the mailing list. check the archives..
13:38<killerbunny>im a linux n00b dont ask me
13:38<killerbunny>i stuck at installing myth tv
13:38<davef>@kvandivo: already done
13:39<killerbunny>on my sarge debian
13:39<killerbunny>when they type unstable they mean sarge right ?
13:39<killerbunny>what then ?
13:39<sfr>sarge is testing, sid is unstable
13:40<killerbunny>so i should try to install what ?
13:41<sfr>as linux newbie? stable
13:41<killerbunny>no i have installed sarge on my system
13:41<killerbunny>but if i want to install mythtv
13:41<killerbunny>they only provide woody and unstable packages
13:42<sfr>so stick with it. people using sid/unstable are expected to be able to solve problems on their own.
13:43<davef>argh anyone gimme a slack package. this f***'s gettin on my nerves
13:43<sfr>killerbunny: you could always install mythtv from source. it's not that hard actually.
13:43<killerbunny>i will have a go at that
13:44<sfr>killerbunny: hmm, maybe the unstable packages _might_ work on testing.
13:44<killerbunny>one quistion more...
13:44<sfr>killerbunny: ask mdz here. he created the debs
13:44<killerbunny>ohh oki
13:45<killerbunny>does mythtv support mouse ?
13:45<killerbunny>i played a bit with freevo.... and i kinda cant use mouse there
13:45<sfr>killerbunny: /join #mythtv-users. this channel is for development discussions.
13:45<killerbunny>okey hard to know
13:46<killerbunny>thanks for the help
13:46<davef>man im stuck. qt-MySql rpm installed - still doesnt work
13:46*sfr thinks #mythtv should be left for users and #mythtv-dev created instead

16:50<kro>What is the keyboard key to start the ripping of a dvd? I'm sitting at the rip/transcode screen, and I can't seem to figure out how to actually start the rip.
16:52<mdz>sfr: probably not without modification, an HTTP response looks more like "HTTP/1.1 200 OK"
16:52<kro>ahh. ok.. that prompt "0 Process Selected Title" is a little confusing.
16:53<thor_>how is that confusing?
16:53<kro>It could say something like "Press 0 to Process Selected Title"
16:54<kro>Now I'm having another issue... when I press 0 the
16:55<kro>"0 Process Selected Title" highlights for a second, but then nothing happens...
16:55<kro>I'll dig into this...
16:58<sfr>mdz: how could it be modified? or do i have to create a new class like HttpComms?
16:59<sfr>err, like QHttp i mean
17:01<mdz>sfr: presumably
17:01<mdz>depending on how similar the shoutcast stuff is to HTTP, you might be able to extend qhttp
17:02<thor_>sfr, you might want to look at httprequest.h/.cpp and httpresponse.h/.cpp in mfdlib
17:03<sfr>mdz: i did that partially (not a own class) and it looks messy. ;) afaik the only difference to HTTP is the response which is ICY 200 OK and not HTTP... Even the repsonse codes are the same/very similar to HTTP.
17:04<sfr>thor_: ah yes. i noticed them in the last cvs sync. i will look at them, maybe i can reuse some code.
17:05<thor_>also, daaprequest/daapresponse in the daapclient plugin (those are the opposite, DAAP is 90% HTTP)
17:06<sfr>thor_: ah, cool.

21:06<ChamPro>Hadees: did you have to use the unstable version of ALSA? I tried using 0.9.8 and it gave me compile erros
21:09<ChamPro>and 1.0.1 gives me errors too... wonderful
21:10<Hadees>just head up for everyone, somthing is diffrent in alsa
