02:31<beetle__>am I better off with cvs, or with 0.13 of mythtv if all I am interested in is recording and transcoding from my ivtv tuner card?
02:35+ofer [] joined #mythtv
02:35<ofer>what does a slave back end do for me?
02:37<ofer>i'd like to have myth use the "slave" back end tv tuner when its connected and the master tv tuner when the slave is off
02:52<beetle__>ofer: it's mentioned here.
02:52<beetle__>Advanced Backend Configurations
03:05<ofer>cool, thanks
03:11<Snow-Man>thor_: What was that about the lists?
03:12<thor_>there was a long period there were nothing came through, think it's fine now
03:13<Snow-Man>17:22 <thor_> Snow-Man, lists seem a bit foobar'd
03:13<Snow-Man>That's all I saw, and things look ok now..
03:13<thor_>yup ... I sent in something around then that took like an hour to get back to inbox
03:14<Snow-Man>What's your addy?
03:14+BlackHussar [] joined #mythtv
03:15<Snow-Man>You sent something at around 16:33 then, and didn't get it back for an hour?
03:16<thor_>something like that
03:16<thor_>it might have been low traffic and a problem at my mailserver as well (?)
03:16<thor_>anyway, seems fine
03:16<Snow-Man>That's what I'm looking for.
03:17<thor_>well, there's a second transfer you wouldn't see (from to my "real" mail server)
03:19<Snow-Man>Jan 17 16:33:10 colo sm-mta[7140]: i0HLWnWM007140: to=<>, delay=00:00:05, mailer=esmtp, pri=10435933, stat=queued

03:20<thor_>hmmm, ok , obviously my bad
03:21<Snow-Man>Only one delay over 5 minutes, and that was like 6.5 minutes.
03:21<Snow-Man>Since 16:33 or so today.
03:21<Snow-Man>It was today, right?
03:21<Snow-Man>(Well, the 17th)
03:22<Snow-Man>Do you have the message? You could check the headers.
03:22<thor_>yup, one sec (and looking at the mail log)
03:24<Snow-Man>k, thanks. :)
03:24<ofer>am i supposed to see my slave tv tuner cards on the masters mythtvsetup?
03:25<Snow-Man>Uh, no?
03:25<thor_>yup, my "real" mailserver was buggered there for a while .... that and the low volume at that time lead me to an erroneous conclusion
03:25<Snow-Man>thor_: Ok. :)
03:25<Snow-Man>thor_: Glad to have it run down, I'm testing my own hack to sendmail on the list server so I'd love to hear of any oddness. :)
03:26<thor_>phew, time for bed
03:26<Snow-Man>Way, way, way past time for me.

08:41<hardwired_>"I think you probably want to do a CVS checkout of the mfd" -thor
08:41<hardwired_>what is mfd?
08:41<pahli_bar>hardwired_: myth frontend daemon.
08:42<hardwired_>ah, thanks
08:43<pahli_bar>hardwired_: i don't understand it completely myself. but how it works is: say you have a bunch of mythfrontend boxen. connect them on a local network. they automatically discover each other and can play each others music, show each others images
08:43<pahli_bar>at least thats the ultimate goal
08:44<pahli_bar>for a single frontend box it gives the capability of say playing music from any plugin (like playing some playlists while the image slideshows are running)
08:45<pahli_bar>thor_ is the one developing it. he can give you more details.
08:45<hardwired_>ah yes. i am reading the thread about mythmusic enhancements, and thor mentioned mfd there.
08:45<hardwired_>that guy has a few nice ideas about mythmusic
08:46<pahli_bar>i agree. mfd strives to address a lot of them
08:46<hardwired_>though i personally don't care about multiple frontends, zeroconf stuff
08:46<hardwired_>i don't plug in new frontend boxes every few minutes
08:47<hardwired_>though, og course, my setup is limited and so is my imagination for different scenarios :)
08:47<pahli_bar>me neither. but current myth setup allows plugins to function only independently of each. mfd will help overcome the shortcomings of this
08:48<hardwired_>yeah, that's great

10:31<_rkulagow>anyone else seeing duplicate messages on the lists?
10:33<_rkulagow>it's only the -dev list apparently. i'm getting 3 copies of the same message.
10:34<pahli_bar>not here
10:34<pahli_bar>_rkulagow: are you subscribed multiple times
10:35+PhracturedBlue [] joined #mythtv
10:38<_rkulagow>not as far as i know, and it's only that one list, not any of the others. i'll check more on my side then.
10:41<pahli_bar>anyone tried the cvs mythgallery slideshows on a tv. i'm wondering if i need to be concerned about the frames per second
10:41<hardwired_>it doesn't do any transition here at all
10:42<pahli_bar>hardwired_: ??
10:42<hardwired_>i enabled opengl, and in setup chose an opengl blend or fade or whatever transition, but not much happened
10:42<pahli_bar>hardwired_: on a tv or on a computer?
10:43<pahli_bar>hardwired_: humpph...
10:43<pahli_bar>hardwired_: would it be possible for you to check it on a computer
10:43<hardwired_>mythmusic visualisations work fine... though the opengl ones are a bit slow, since i use a pvr as output
10:44<hardwired_>pahli_bar: no, don't have a gfx card in tha tbox
10:44<pahli_bar>hardwired_: ah.
10:44<hardwired_>i didn't try very hard or check logs tho, just a quick test after i upgraded to cvs yesterday
10:44<hardwired_>could be a small problem on my side
10:45<pahli_bar>hardwired_: afaik pvr350 fb does not dri rendering and so transitions/opengl will be extremely slow. so i would assume that the transitions just don't happen
10:46<pahli_bar>hardwired_: what about the non-opengl ones?
10:46<hardwired_>lemme check
10:47<pahli_bar>since a release is imminent within a couple of weeks i would appreciate as much feedback/bugreports as possible :)
10:48<hardwired_>pahli_bar: no effect whatsoever with no opengl ones
10:48<pahli_bar>hardwired_: whats the timeinterval between slideshows
10:49<hardwired_>i didn't do slideshow, skipped manually
10:49<pahli_bar>hardwired_: doh! slideshow transitions won't happen if you don't do slideshows
10:50<hardwired_>oh hehe. i wasn't aware that they are 'slideshow' transitions
10:50<hardwired_>i'll check again
10:50<pahli_bar>also please check with the opengl ones.
10:50=holger_ [] quit (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
10:51<hardwired_>ok, non-opengl works fine (tested checkerboard)
10:52<hardwired_>opengl works, but painfully slow (tested blend, it's unusable)
10:52<pahli_bar>heh. what cpu
10:53<hardwired_>slide is a bit better, but still too ugly (slow) to use
10:53<hardwired_>celeron 2k
10:54<pahli_bar>i guess if you don't have dri rendering opengl will be a PITA.
10:54<pahli_bar>i'm surprised it worked in the first place
10:56<hardwired_>mythmusic opengl stuff works as well
10:57<pahli_bar>the problem is mythgallery opengl creates huge textures which require substatial amount of video memory. otherwise the card keeps throwing out textures as it gets filled up.
10:58<pahli_bar>mythmusic opengl uses very small/no textures at all
10:58<pahli_bar>thats why you are seeing the crawl in mythgallery opengl
10:58<sfr>Someone please open my eyes: In constructor `ShoutcastStream::ShoutcastStream(QUrl*,
10:58<sfr> StreamInput*)':
10:58<sfr>shoutcaststream.cpp:56: error: no matching function for call to `QObject::
10:58<sfr> connect(QSocket*&, const char[12], ShoutcastStream* const, const char[12])' ...
10:58<sfr>shoutcast.h/cpp are on
10:59*pahli_bar readies his eyepoking device
10:59<hardwired_>pahli_bar: ah ok, i get it. maybe they can put some more video memory and an opengl unit on the pvr :)
11:00<pahli_bar>sfr: qiodevice is not inherited from qobject
11:00<sfr>pahli_bar: which means?
11:01<pahli_bar>sfr: that means no signal/slots
11:01<pahli_bar>hardwired_: heh
11:02<pahli_bar>sfr: one option is to multiply inherit from qobject and qiodevice.
11:02<sfr>pahli_bar: so there is no receiver in ShoutcastStream for the sender (sock)
11:02<pahli_bar>sfr: you have to make sure to inherit from qobject first
11:03<sfr>pahli_bar: ok, so "The QObject class is the base class of all Qt objects" doesn't mean what i thought it means.
11:04<pahli_bar>heh. slightly misplaced terminology. qobject is the base class of _most_ qt classes
11:05<sfr>pahli_bar: reading a few lines further actually lists all inherited classes. thx.
11:05<hardwired_>hmm. i set channel plus an appropriate finetune value (as my cable provider lists), the picture is quite good (a lot better than just chanelname without finetune) but it is moving up/down slighly, it is sortof jittering
11:06<sfr>pahli_bar: re inherit from qobject first: you mean like public QObject, QIODevice. and why that?
11:07<pahli_bar>sfr: connect is a member function of qobject. and the moc will generate appropriate signal/slot code only if 1) your class inherits from qobject 2) it has a Q_OBJECT macro at the top of the class declaration
11:08<sfr>pahli_bar: sorry for being unclear. that i understood, but i wonder why you said to inherit from QObject before inheriting from QIODevice.
11:08<pahli_bar>sfr: ah that. its a limitation of moc which forces you to do that
11:08<pahli_bar>sfr: on debian?
11:08<sfr>pahli_bar: yes
11:09<pahli_bar>sfr: try man moc.
11:09<pahli_bar>from the manpage: Multiple inheritance requires QObject to be first.
11:09<hardwired_>does mythtv have some sort of channel/frequency input/seek ?
11:09*sfr thinks he better doesn't ask what moc is for now :)
11:10<pahli_bar>sfr: for example see: QSocket inherits from qobject & qiodevice.
11:11<pahli_bar>sfr: moc is a preprocessor which generates appropriate code for the connecting signals to slots
11:12<sfr>pahli_bar: ok, but nevermind about that. with my current knowledge about qt/c++ that doesn't tell much yet.

11:53<pahli_bar>_rkulagow: i have updated the README for the changes. you can use it as a base for generating the docs

12:02<thor_>pahli_bar, came across a few tidbits of picture sharing in iPhoto, it's a protocol called DPAP running on port 8770. Since it's very close to DAAP, I should have it built into the mfd before too long (need to get a hold of a Mac though)
12:03<pahli_bar>where. where. any docs
12:04<thor_>not really, just a two liner here:
12:06<pahli_bar>some more info here:
12:07<thor_>yeah, that's daap/dmap, not up to date with dpap
12:07<thor_>but it wouldn't take long to figure out

12:43<pahli_bar>heh. it was only this friday. i will contact the apple lawyers and see if its a case of prior art :)
12:43<josephk>ah ok...maybe I should let you know that it's in the OS as well

13:22<ofer>err, what do i do when zap2it is down and i want to configure myth?
13:25<jerry__>you should be able to configure everything except mythfilldatabase i would think. dunno for sure as i'm new at this
13:25<ofer>its hanging right now
13:25<ofer>wont let me select a cable provider
13:26<ofer>says zap2it failed to give us a page
13:26<ofer>500:internal server error
13:27<ofer>and it just takes forever to do whatever its doing
13:27<jerry__>you sure you got xmltv installed?
13:27<ofer>it worked last night
13:27<ofer>im just resetting everything trying to get a maste slave configuration working
13:27<jerry__>i had a problem awhile back til i emerged it, thought it should have installed as part of the mythtv emerge but i dunno
13:28<ofer>everythings installed
13:28<ofer>it wokred for the last week just fine
13:28<ofer>zap2it's site is down
13:28<ofer>thats whats causing the problem
13:28<ofer>that's pretty annoying
13:28<jerry__>i guess you gotta wait then i dunno
13:29<ofer>i was wondering if theres a switch or something, or maybe a way to set an alternate provider
13:29<jerry__>might be, good question, wish i knew
13:30+cmorgan [] joined #mythtv
13:30<ofer>thanks for your help =)

13:33<ofer>i want one of those ivtv cards
13:33<ShockValue>on the "default input" for a pvr250, which one do i want? (composite 0-4, tuner, etc?)
13:34<jerry__>ShockValue, depends on which input you have signal incoming from
13:34<ShockValue>standard cable TV coaxial into the screw-in on the back of the card
13:35<jerry__>one sec brb
13:36<ofer>alright! the website came back up!
13:36<jerry__>mine is set to tuner0
13:36<ofer>is there a howto detailing how to deal with multiple mythbackends?
13:37<ofer>the howto is kinda sparse
13:37<jerry__>i got sat box set to tuner
13:37<jerry__>the howto is all i've seen on multiples
13:37<ShockValue>ok thanks

13:44<ofer>the website is really slow
13:44<ofer>just failed to get a channel list
13:45<ofer>kinda annoying, it was all working last night
13:45<ofer>i just wanted to reset the configuration to get a master slave setup working
13:45<_rkulagow>chutt: docs sync please?
13:46<ofer>wish there was a way to tell it manually
13:46<ofer>or change which provider it uses (like use excite instead of zap2it or something)
13:46+cmorgan [] joined #mythtv
13:46<ofer>its kinda bad that if zap2it is dead, myth cannot be configured
13:47<ShockValue>yeah, zap2it keeps timing out on me
13:48<ShockValue>hrm... well at least it gives me plenty of time to practice the guitar while i stare at the screen :)

13:50<Chutt>rkulagow, sure, lemme finish all these 'committed to cvs'
13:50<Chutt>ofer, err, it certainly can be configured without zap2it.
13:50<ofer>chutt: how?
13:51<Chutt>how not?
13:51<ofer>unless i rubn mythfilldatabase, the backend chokes
13:51<Chutt>how do you think people use mythtv in countries where their xmltv grabber doesn't provide any channel data?
13:51+choenig [] joined #mythtv
13:51<ofer>unless i get a channel listing, mythfilldatabse chokes
13:52<ofer>how do they do it?
13:52<PhracturedBlue>Chutt, is there a more elegant way to to a QString into a LongLong without using sscanf?
13:52<PhracturedBlue>s/to a/to change a/
13:53<Chutt>phracturedblue, not until qt 3.2 is a requirement
13:53<Chutt>which kinda sucks, but
13:53<PhracturedBlue>ok, that's what I figured.
13:53<Chutt>ofer, they define their channels manually
13:53<ofer>so i should try setting up as international? ok =) thanks
13:54<ofer>neat, thanks
13:54<Chutt>if you're using CVS, there's a channel editor built into setup

14:01<hardwired_>19067 Segmentation fault mythfrontend
14:01<hardwired_>ah damnit
14:01<ofer>does the master backend need to be running while configuring a slave?
14:01<ofer>the howto says to skip the video sources step
14:02<ofer>so i did, but the video source on the master does not show up on the input connections
14:02<ofer>on the slve
14:03<ofer>so i cant assosiate the source to the tuner
14:05+loebrich [] joined #mythtv
14:05<Chutt>make sure you've set up the slave to talk to the same db.

14:09<thor_>Chutt, so the avdecoder seeks in the lib now ?
14:09<Chutt>for mythmusic, yeah
14:10<Chutt>and only for wma/asf files
14:10<thor_>super duper
14:11<ofer>ok, here's a strange behaviour
14:11<ofer>i run mythtvsetup on the master backendd
14:11<ofer>set up a channel source
14:11<ofer>then go to the slave
14:11<ofer>set up a tuner
14:12<ofer>the source on the master does not show up, so i cant set the tuner to link to that channel soruce
14:12<Chutt>you don't have it set to use the same database.
14:12<ofer>then when i run the master back end again, the channel source has dissappeared
14:12<Chutt>like i said 10 minutes ago.
14:12<ofer>i'd like to set it up with the same database
14:12<Chutt>unless you said yes to the second question it asked when you setup the slave?
14:13<ofer>what second question?
14:13<thor_>stan the _man_
14:13<ofer>i see
14:13<ofer>thanks =)
14:17<ofer>yay! your a genious! =)
14:18<ofer>a second question is why isnt the tv tuner from the slave backend appearing in the master backend's configuration?
14:19<ofer>ok, fine, not a second, an umteenth =)
14:19<Chutt>it's not supposed to.
14:20<ofer>i havnt added the masters tv tuner yet because i want myth to default to the slave if its on
14:20<ofer>so i set up the slave
14:20<ofer>now im going to add the capture card on the master
14:20<ofer>should the slaves backend be running?
14:21<Chutt>you're supposed to set up the master first.
14:22<ofer>according to this
14:22<ofer>im supposed to set up a capture on the slave
14:22<ofer>then set up capture on the master
14:22<Chutt>geez, read what it says
14:22<Chutt>it says you _can_
14:23<ofer>Rather than defining all of the cards on the master, you could first go into setup on the master to define globals such as the general configuration and the channel lineup but not the host-specific configuration item like the capture card. In this example, we will use a 4 tuner configuration, where two slaves have one card each and the master has two.
14:23<Chutt>you really should set up the master first
14:23<Chutt>until you understand how things work.
14:25<ofer>its working as i want it to!
14:26<ofer>thank you chutt! =)

18:12<Chutt>you do a completely new checkout each time you update?
18:13<Netslayer>last time was 6 days ago
18:13<Chutt>do you think bandwidth is free?
18:13<Netslayer>guess u prefer update

18:19<hadees>do they do email too?

18:21<anduin>dirty cheat :)

19:37<hiren>hello all, I just got xbox as a frontend working with mythtv 0.13. I have the DVD remote working but can't figure out how to hit "ESC" on the dvd remote or how to navigate back
19:37<sfr>wrong tuner type, loose cable come to mind.
19:38<hiren>any suggestions ?
19:38<Desiac>as far as tuner type i've loaded the modules for the bt848 IC2 and alsa, and the cable ive just pulled from my tv
19:38<Desiac>sfr: is there any where else i'd have to specify the driver?
19:39<sfr>Desiac: sure, in modules.conf s/t like options bttv card=1 tuner=0 where card/tuner is specific for your tv card model
19:41<Desiac>yeah i had a look on the DB, couldn't find info for my card, just using bttv in /etc/modules , during boot it says its autodetected or has it just found the card type but still needs to be told about specific tuner?
19:42<sfr>Desiac: i'v only set up bttv once but i'd say so. there's a large list of cards and what options to use with bttv in the kernel source. probably also available via google
19:43<Desiac>yeah just googled and i think i might have found the goods :) thanks for the help
19:43<hiren>anyone here running mythfronted on xbox ?
19:47<kvandivo>well, mythfrontend, anyway..
19:47<sfr>hm, we are picky today :)
19:47<kvandivo>been doing proofreading all day long
19:48<hiren>kvandivo: with the xbox dvd remote ? I can't figure out how to "ESC" on the XBOX dvd remote
19:48<kvandivo>yes, with the remote, and you need to remap the keys so that 'esc' is valid, probably
19:48<kvandivo>there's a kernel module header file that you can tweak to your liking..
19:49<kvandivo>usbxboxir.h or something like that..
19:50<hiren>kvandio: and recompile the kernel ?
19:50<kvandivo>and if you are getting double keypresses you'll need to grab the new usb-xboxir.c file as well
19:51<kvandivo>well, you don't technically have to recompile the kernel since it is a module, but you'll need to remake the modules
19:51<hiren>hmm, I don't seee that file at all . I have Xebian -1.0.0 installed . Which package would have it ?
19:51<kvandivo>and modules_install...
19:51<kvandivo>no clue.. don't have xebian..
19:53<hiren>kv:which dist do you use on your xbox ? which pkg has the usb-xboxir on your dist ? I'm googling to find out more
19:54<kvandivo>gentoox, and it came with it. couldn't tell you where.. i suspect that xbox-linux kernel package probably includes it..
19:55<kvandivo>i'm feeling generous.. what's your email and i'll send you my files...
19:57<kvandivo>that's just my little directory that i made us so that i'd know how to remake it each time..

20:57<pcjabber>yes, i am starting the daemon
20:58<hadees>are you using a pre made lirc conf file or are you recording it your self?
21:00<hadees>pcjabber: did you make your lirc.conf yourself?
21:01<pcjabber>i recorded my lircd.conf myself
21:01<pcjabber>and it works with irw
21:01<pcjabber>i also made my .lircrc myself
21:01<pcjabber>and symlinked .mythtv/lircrc -> .lircrc
21:01<hadees>alright well i am out of ideas, i know the premade ones don't always work
21:01<pcjabber>i think its a conflict with IVTV

21:58<NiQo>Is mythtv's audio/video sync loosing presicion because of: pkt->pts / (AV_TIME_BASE / 1000)
21:59<NiQo>Also after a couple of hours of playback the audio and video suddenly looses sync and starts to stutter..

22:28<kja>hmm, why reboot...
22:29+schwin97 [] joined #mythtv
22:30<kja>octane: separate front/backend? if so then another 250, if only frontend a 350, if satellite or hdtv available: maybe a pchdtv card?
22:30=sfr [] quit (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
22:30<Octane>same backend frontend
22:31<kja>get a 350 for excelent tv out quality
22:31<kja>if you have access to a digital video source (satellite/hdtv), I would highly recomend that
22:32<kja>you get a digital card

22:40<tmk>good evening
22:41<tmk>i have a question about slave backends.. anyone feel like helping?
22:41<tmk>basically i have a slave backend, which seems to be working, but it won't record concurrently with the master
22:41<tmk>live tv works when the master is recording though
22:41<tmk>but it won't schedule to the slave
22:48<kach>can you do live tv on both backends?
22:48<kja>does the master backend recognise the slave in logs?
22:49<kja>bah, stupid q
22:52<kja>when you schedule a recording on the master, then on the slave in the same timeslot, what does the slave backend print with mythbackend -v all?
23:05+drd- [] joined #mythtv
23:16<kja>hm, yet another bug: a zero-sized file will make mythbackends memory footprint huge on a generate preview on that file ;)

23:37<drd->mythtv is so sexy it makes me laff
23:46<kvandivo>i don't find sex funny, persay..
23:47<mdz>Netslayer: there would be too many bogus bug reports for it to be useful
