00:01<nulltank>well, i found it using the wayback machine, and let me just say it was every thing i had hoped it would be and more, o so much more, too much really
00:02<Truin>I'm sorry.
00:05<Truin>ok, last smoke break of the night, then I better finish up some work so I can go home on time. Gotta be back here 9 hours from now. :(
00:07<Truin>what is it with the Chinese anyway? Thinking they need a whole week to celebrate one day... it's a new year... only takes on day, people. Sheesh.

00:31<Chutt>hey thor?
00:34+ChaosExiguum [] joined #mythtv
00:45<Octane>god damnit!
00:45<Octane>mythtv really needs a "warning youre in your playback buffer, hitting X button will cause you to lose it, are you sure"
00:46<Octane>i just did it on a 2 hour buffer :(
00:46<thor_>what'd I do ?
00:47<FooBar01>I think first they have to fix the LiveTV bugs where it crashes randomly upon watching live it crashed while it was paused!
00:48<Chutt>if it crashes
00:48<Chutt>get a backtrace.
00:48<Octane>sounds like a problem with your setup dude
00:48+virsys [] joined #mythtv
00:48<FooBar01>can't get a backtrace if it freezes my computer
00:48<Chutt>thor, naw, wanted your input on the metadata patch, but i figured out what i was seeing wrong
00:48<FooBar01>it crashes bad
00:48<Chutt>foobar01, then it's not a mythtv problem.
00:48<Octane>do the microsoft dance FooBar01
00:48<Octane>format reinstall
00:49<Chutt>a userspace program, like mythtv, can _not_ cause your machine to freeze
00:49<FooBar01>but usually its the problem that most people have been having, where it does the "Waiting 2 seconds..." repeating message
00:49<thor_>modprobe myth !!
00:49<Chutt>foobar01, so start debugging
00:50<Truin> "Waiting 2 seconds..." repeating message for me is resolved by unloading and reloading the ivtv module... but if you're not using ivtv, could be something different.
00:51<FooBar01>Octane: Why would I ever install Microsoft? How would that make things better?
00:51<Octane>its a phrase
00:51<thor_>Chutt, you wanting to fiddle with the album art stuff before 0.14 ... I was planning on letting the debate settle down about where the images should sit ...
00:51<Octane>you know when something breaks on windows, you have to uninstall and reinstall
00:51<thor_>(was that why you "paged" me?)
00:51<FooBar01>Truin: not using ivtv...I have a basic WinTV tuner...not the DVR one.
00:52<thor_>but I could it put it in sooner with a setting to turn it off
00:52<Chutt>thor, i'll just apply it for now
00:53<Chutt>since i already did
00:53<thor_>that was easy
00:53<Chutt>it can be changed later
00:53<FooBar01>I heard that they fixed the problem in CVS, but I don't think the fix has made it to the Debian package yet.
00:53<Chutt>of course it hasn't.
00:53<Chutt>there are only packages of releases.
00:54<FooBar01>I'm hoping for a release soon, and that the fix gets included with the release.
00:54<thor_>I'm hoping that someone accidently mails me the title deed to, say, a medium sized European principality
00:55<Chutt>foobar01, so basically, you're just lazy and willing to whine about it instead?
00:55<FooBar01>The problem I've been having has been plaguing many people in the past month.
00:56<Chutt>if you think it's fixed in cvs
00:56<Chutt>try using cvs to see
00:57<FooBar01>Chutt: Nah, more like I'm seeing if anyone in here has anything info about it.
00:57<thor_>no one here but us l003er3
00:58<Truin>not a problem I've run into, and not one I've heard mentioned... but then again, I built mythtv from source, so, can't help ya with any packaged versions.
00:58<FooBar01>Chutt: The thought entered my mind, but I'd rather use a release. I'm debating whether to switch to CVS or just wait for the next release.
00:58<Chutt>if you have a problem with the latest release
00:58<Truin>FooBar01: depends on how willing you are to wait for a release to see if it fixes it.
00:58<Chutt>and you see it mentioned that the particular problem you're having is fixed in cvs
00:59<Chutt>why would you still whine about that problem being in the release?
00:59<Chutt>and not just spend the half hour or less it'd take to install cvs and see?
00:59<Truin>THEN EITHER INSTALL THE CVS, OR WAIT! :) sorry, couldn't resist. ;)
01:00<Truin>my frist mythtv build took longer than 30 minutes, but then again there were a lot of deps.
01:00<Truin>the install doc was well written, tho. Had no problems getting it all together. Only problem was in figuring out the key commands... took me a month before I found keys.txt
01:01<Chutt>no one reads the README anymore
01:01<Truin>I hear ya. :(
01:01<thor_>there's a README ?!
01:02<Chutt>thor, hey, want me to update mfd or do you?
01:02<Chutt>just needs to get rid of the gContext definition in your main.cpp
01:02<thor_>oh yeah
01:03<thor_>I did that already
01:03<thor_>well, not committed
01:03<Chutt>i just committed the libmyth change half a minute ago
01:04-FooBar01 [~randall@] left #mythtv ()
01:04<thor_>I had a problem when I was checking if it still builds with --disable-mythlib
01:04<thor_>so I changed that around a little
01:05<thor_>lemme try and build your new commits and see what that does to me
01:11<thor_>I see
01:11<thor_>I'll fix it
01:12<Chutt>I would like to fix this and was wondering how do I go about, committing the modified sources? (currently read-only cvs access)
01:12<Chutt>Or do all patches etc. have to be send in by mail (seems unlikely)?
01:13*thor_ thor looks around in total confusion
01:16<Truin>home time. nighterz, guyz.
01:16<Chutt>thor, some random guy emailed me that

01:18<Octane>Chutt, what are the chance of having that "are you sure" dialogue that i spoke about above?
01:18<Chutt>if you write it, 100%
01:19*Octane knew that was coming
01:19<Octane>i was hoping you would reply to my latest thread
01:19<Chutt>hey, about that nes title patch?
01:19<Octane>i gave up coding it

01:19<Octane>im like derrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
01:19<Octane>i tried doing another patch, something with favorites in mythgame

01:19<Octane>that one worked well, until it got to the file i changed

01:25<sfr_>good morning Chutt. here:
01:27+Teflon- [] joined #mythtv
01:27<Chutt>sfr, i want to try to get that applied so at least the stuff's started in cvs =)
01:30<sfr_>hmmmm. but test it with local playback before. might be i broke wma playback and/or other decoders again.
01:30<Chutt>you did =)
01:30<Chutt>but i'll fix
01:31<sfr_>iirc mp3 and cd still played fine.
01:31<Chutt>it looked like you broke em, but, no worries
01:31<Chutt>i'll fix everything =)
01:32+billytwowilly [] joined #mythtv
01:32<sfr_>got a bit frustrated with trying to keep it well organised. ;)
01:32<billytwowilly>any idea what could make a previously working remote frontend display a black screen with sound playing on mythtv?
01:33<Chutt>billytwowilly, error messages on the console
01:33<thor_>black screen .... no sound .... power failure?
01:33<billytwowilly>nothing on the console.
01:33<billytwowilly>I just ssh'd in and am rebooting it.
01:33<billytwowilly>black screen, but sound plays.
01:33<thor_>never mind
01:34+virsys [] joined #mythtv
01:34<billytwowilly>I know the recording is good because I watched one before and the new one I'm trying to watch has a working picture in the display..
01:34<billytwowilly>on mythweb..
01:34<billytwowilly>I'm hoping the trick I learned running windows 98 will work:0
01:35<billytwowilly>hmm. reboot didn't work.
01:37<billytwowilly>I did a killall totem on the frontend and that fixed it. silly improperly exiting totem...
01:38<billytwowilly>it's funny how just asking your question somewhere can help you figure it out.
01:38<billytwowilly>anyhoo, I'll stop spamming the channel now and go watch csi;)
01:47<Octane>Chutt you have been much nicer lately, how come
01:47<Octane>i have noticed an increase in your smiley usage
01:56=mchou [] quit (Remote closed the connection)
01:58<srl>Octane: Maybe I've annoyed him less
02:00<sfr_>Chutt: so, did you already delete the patch in disgust?
02:03<thor_>hmmm ... we seem to be at LIBVERSION 14

12:03<pahli_bar>some people seem to be complaining about it.
12:03<Chutt>it may make it slightly more clear what it's doing, that's all
12:03<Chutt>i don't really mind either way
12:04<pahli_bar>ah well. since its only one person, i will just wait for more complaints after the release
12:04<kvandivo>what does "rotate left" mean? that the top of the image moves to the left side, or that the bottom of the image moves to the left side?
12:05<pahli_bar>there is a special place for people who think so much as you do :)
12:05<kvandivo>my point is that clockwise and counterclockwise is very clear, unless you have one of those strange bar clocks that runs backwards..
12:07<pahli_bar>kvandivo: its definitely more clear. the problem here is that because of space-limitations i abbreviated them to CW and CCW
12:13<Chutt>keep em as they are
12:13<Chutt>final decision!
12:15<kvandivo>it has been spoken, and thus it shall be

12:20<kvandivo>what needs done to it? I've changed the table names..
12:20<Chutt>did you resubmit it?
12:20<kvandivo>not yet. had been meaning to talk to you to see if there was anything else to do before resubing
12:20<Chutt>i'll look things over again, then
12:20<kvandivo>the proposal went out on monday and i've been in recovery mode since then
12:23<kvandivo>now that i'm starting to find some time, i need to reread bjm's comments (and my response to it) and see if there was anything in there that i needed to do..
12:23<kvandivo>i can't recall, off the top of my head
12:24<Chutt>neither can i =)

12:26<_rkulagow>whoops. let me check if i'm cached.
12:26<_rkulagow>sorry, my bad. forced a refresh and there it was. thanks.
12:26<kvandivo>could that be automated? a script on the webserver or something that that password protected..
12:27<kvandivo>second 'that' -> is
12:27<Chutt>i'm lazy, though
12:27*kvandivo grins evily.
12:27<_rkulagow>ick. the whole uk grabber thing sucks. i haven't seen any messages on the s00per-sekrit US offering in a long time.
12:27<Chutt>neither have i
12:28<sfr>pahli_bar: hey, i vote for CW/CCW
12:28<pahli_bar>sfr: too late. the master overlord has made his decision (though in your favor)
12:29<sfr>right, just spotted it
12:30<_rkulagow>chutt: is john danner still around? he did mythweather, correct?
12:32<Chutt>he's in here occasionally
12:33<Chutt>hasn't contributed code in a while
12:33<Chutt>and yeah, he did mythweather
12:33<_rkulagow>ok; a user has sent me a "missing city" report for mythweather.
12:33<Sastraxi>hey, does anyone know what version of mythdvd ripping was added into? is it CVS still?
12:34<Chutt>the very first version of mythdvd
12:34<sfr>_rkulagow: Bagdad?
12:35<sfr>but that would probably be a 'missing country' report
12:35<kvandivo>atlantis, actually..
12:35<Sastraxi>hmm... do you have to enable it in setup? I don't have a button for it... i have DVD and VCD...

13:19<Chutt>i currently pay $20 of that
13:20<Chutt>which reminds me, i need to send a check to snow-man
13:20<Snow-Man>I agree.
13:21<pahli_bar>Chutt: thats not bad at all. for the amount of bandwidth thats a very good price
13:21<Snow-Man>Chutt: Do we use even 1/10th the bandwidth yet?
13:22<Chutt>snowman, based on the weekly average, yeah
13:22<Snow-Man>Looks like were currently using around 14%.
13:22<Chutt>i think, unless my math's wrong
13:23<Snow-Man>I was looking at the monthly graph average.
13:23<Snow-Man>Then X/8*(60*60*24*30.5) or so.
13:25<Snow-Man>The alternative is to just compare 1000*8/(60*60*24*30.5) to the average in + average out. :)
13:25<Chutt>awstats 6.0 is out now
13:26<Snow-Man>That'd be 59.6+387.7 / 3183.29, btw. :)
13:26<Chutt>debian packages are still stuck at 5.4 or whatnot
13:27<Snow-Man>The maintainer said he'd package up new debs 15 Sep 2003.
13:27<Chutt>6.0's supposedly faster
13:27<Chutt>ie, less time spent spinning at 100% cpu :)
13:27<Snow-Man>Yeah, can't complain about that really.

13:35<pahli_bar>from the ask mythtv section: how do you deal with co-developers who use terrible coding styles?
13:39<Chutt>i don't give people cvs access until their coding style's readable =)
13:39<Snow-Man>Well, that maintainer *appears* active, on some stuff at least...
13:40<Snow-Man>He's got a whole crapload of packages.

13:42<Chutt>new laptop
13:42<Chutt>i did almost go for the mvp for $70 at circuitcity deal, though
13:42<_rkulagow>ah, almost as good. dell?
13:42<Chutt>decided i didn't have the time to figure stuff out, though
13:42<Chutt>yeah, dell 600m
13:43<_rkulagow>i'm hoping that my $20 gift card from CC comes today or tomorrow so i can pick one up.
13:44<Chutt>they do look neat
13:44<Chutt>but i don't want to spend time making it work =)
13:44<Snow-Man>Alright, I've pinged him again and said I'd take it over if he's too busy
13:45<Chutt>i'd get one if it just worked
13:45<Snow-Man>Chutt: So maybe soon you'll just have me to bitch at when a new version comes out. :)
13:46<Snow-Man>He did a new version of 5.6 a little over a month ago. Heh.
13:47<Chutt>that's stupid
13:47<Chutt>5.9 was out then
13:47<Snow-Man>Yeah, I know.
13:48<Snow-Man>There's also a patch to make the Debian stuff work with 5.9 that's been in the bug report for a while.

16:36<pahli_bar>lmatter: not very sure here. qt widgets tend to do double buffering of their own. so do most of the myth plugins when using custom themeable UITypes. i don't know how the tv/video playback works

16:40<lmatter>pahli_bar, thanks.
16:45<pahli_bar>lmatter: if you don't see any flickers anywhere, then you don't need to worry about it
16:47<lmatter>no flickers. Just trying to eek all the power out of my epia so it won't stutter during OSD transition.
16:48<pahli_bar>double buffering usually demands more video memory. in your case it can help to turn it off

18:11*o_cee is away: asleep
18:12<sams2100>pahli_bar, yes, I can see that... but for a dedicated mythtv box, have you heard of a plugin like that? if not, I might look into making one because I tried gaim the other night and it worked great (with large fonts of course)
18:12<pahli_bar>sams2100: ahhh... you are talking about a plugin for gaim.... i thought for myth..
18:13<sams2100>oh, no... sorry, should have been more clear
18:14<sams2100>mythtv plugins are basically limited to one running at one time right? Like you cant play mp3's and play a rom

22:14<cmorgan>should be
22:14<rOOfus>would the 350 be able to handle the load of encoding and all?
22:14<cmorgan>its all done in hardware
22:14<cmorgan>naturally the hardware has to do it all in realtime or it would skip
22:14<rOOfus>so the proc speed doesnt matter than?

22:21<rOOfus>the site looks like it is pretty kick ass, i particulary like the built in mame front end
22:21<cmorgan>mostly due to driver issues that hve been resolved
22:21<rOOfus>and you use dss?
22:21<cmorgan>use digital cable
22:21<rOOfus>i would be building it from scratch, but i have a spare athlon900 lying around
22:22<rOOfus>and a bulky box
22:22<rOOfus>with a memory chip

22:23<cmorgan>oh yeah. 4+GB/hr at 720x480 high datarates
22:23<Snow-Man>Alright, I've got a mythfrontend on a different machine

22:24<rOOfus>for real
22:24<lmatter>Snow-Man, what IP did you give master backend in setup?
22:24<rOOfus>so a 120 gig drive would be on the small side then?
22:24<cmorgan>well its recording at dvd quality, so you should expect dvd sized output files right? ;-)
22:24<Snow-Man>lmatter: The question "What is the hostname of the system where MythTV backend is installed?" and I gave the hostname of the machine..
22:24<rOOfus>i guess so
22:25<cmorgan>naturally you can adjust both the res and the datarate
22:25<rOOfus>does it look like shit if you use a lower rate?
22:25<Snow-Man>2004-01-23 22:25:16 Connecting to backend server: (try 1 of 1)

22:25<cmorgan>it looked AMAZING at 720x480
22:25<Snow-Man>That's what I get when I run mythfrontend though.

22:26<rOOfus>does that play nice with myth>
22:27<cmorgan>no real need for a sound card. pvr does the audio output
22:27<rOOfus>oh for real?
22:27<Snow-Man>Bah, the mythtv postinst doesn't actually do anything with the server host/port. Damnit.
22:27<rOOfus>i didnt see audio out on their specs
22:27<Snow-Man>How do you configure the backend host/port in mythfrontend?
22:28<Snow-Man>wtf is Chutt anyway, he always bitches I'm not around when something breaks.
22:28<cmorgan>Snow-Man: run the setup app on the backend and give it an ip address(i think) and then edit your mysql.txt to point to the backend ip
22:29<rOOfus>i think i am going to try to build one
22:29<rOOfus>cmorgan, you know much about the knoppix myth project?
22:29<cmorgan>nope, just that its an install made just for myth
22:30<rOOfus>i guess the question is, do i want an ipod or do i want to fuck around and try to build a myth box
22:30<rOOfus>either one would cost bout the same

22:38<rOOfus>and how much memory do you use?
22:39<cmorgan>no idea, machine has 512mb
22:39<rOOfus>no idea how much hd space you have/
22:39<rOOfus>just a lot then :)
22:39<cmorgan>big harddrives...420GB or something
22:39<rOOfus>oh shit
22:39<rOOfus>several hd in there?
22:39<cmorgan>3 or 4
22:39<cmorgan>they were around
22:39<cmorgan>120GB should be fine
22:39<rOOfus>and it is not hard to chain several together?
22:40<cmorgan>i mean, you shouldn't plan to record a month worth of shows at highest res without running out of space
22:40<cmorgan>nahh, linux does raid pretty well
22:40-ElectricElf [~david@electricelf.registered.freenode] left #mythtv ()
22:40<rOOfus>oh you have it as raid
22:40<rOOfus>i would just use ide i think
22:40<rOOfus>one last question
22:40<cmorgan>its software raid
22:41<cmorgan>can't see why you'd want to spend money on a hardware raid card when cpu cycles are so cheap ;-)
22:41<rOOfus>there are channel guides for all the different cable and satellite systems available?
22:42<rOOfus>wow this is like discovering something really cool that you always wish was there, but did not know about
22:42<rOOfus>make a complete linux based media center
22:42<rOOfus>that is sweet
22:43<rOOfus>aight, thanks
22:43<cmorgan>as a software developer i'm amazed all of the time at the vast amount of good open source software out there
22:43<rOOfus>what software do you develop?
22:43<cmorgan>sent a few small patches in for myth, hack on wine a little bit
22:44<cmorgan>its a hobby mostly
22:44<cmorgan>don't get enough at work writing software all day ;-)
22:44<rOOfus>you follow the SCO lawsuit at all?
22:44<rOOfus>did you hear bout the letter they sent to congress?
22:44<rOOfus>that was in the news this week?
22:44<cmorgan>i'm waiting for sco to fold ;-)
22:45<cmorgan>ha, everyone see the build your own pvr story on slashdot?
22:45<rOOfus>thats what made me take a second look at myth
22:45<rOOfus>but you hear bout that congress letter, their lobbying stuff?
22:46<cmorgan>good luck though
22:46<rOOfus>oh, it was on /. earlier, i was the one who published it on the web
22:46<cmorgan>i mean, what do they think they will accomplish?
22:46<rOOfus>it got leaked to me
22:46<rOOfus>they wrote in the letter that linux threatens nat'l security
22:47<rOOfus>pretty retarded, they are desperate
22:47<cmorgan>they've blown all of their credibility months ago
22:47<rOOfus>true, aight now i am out for real
