00:33* thor_ is thinking Chutt is still having odd problems with his X server
00:33--- ---> Sir-Al [~EXiT@] has joined #mythtv
00:33Chutt thor, yeah
00:34thor_ seems odd, weird hardware ?
00:34Chutt haven't changed a thing, aside from newer debian X packages
00:34thor_ ah
00:34Chutt so, i'd assume that those are the problem
00:35thor_ that which remains, no matter how improbable, must be the cause
00:35Chutt heh
00:35Chutt i'm finally going to put my resume on the website tonight
00:36thor_ someone should start a betting pool
00:37thor_ heh, doesn't phpNuke have polls ...
00:37Chutt yeah, but i've got almost everything disabled in phpnuke
00:37Chutt cuts down on the exploits
00:37thor_ yeah
00:38thor_ but it would be nice: Chutt will find a job in A. one minute, B one hour, C one day, D one week, E making hot grits for Natalie Portman
00:38Chutt heh
00:39thor_ btw, client lib side for mfd is pretty much in a useable state
00:39Chutt great
00:40Chutt i've been slacking off on code the past few days
00:40Chutt catching up on my reading
00:40thor_ you should be slacking off on everything
00:40thor_ navel examination
00:40Chutt heh
00:40--- ---> monkeyBox [] has joined #mythtv
00:42--- User: *** warlord is now known as warlord-afk
00:42thor_ just need to get server --> client lib deltas worked out, and then figure out which bit on the client side should be building the tree
00:47Chutt There are currently, 109 guest(s) and 0 member(s) that are online.
00:47Chutt heh
00:47Chutt website gets a lot of traffic these days
00:47Chutt 'course, that's just phpnuke's crappy estimate, but..
00:47thor_ heh
00:48thor_ how many downloads (roughly) ?
00:48Chutt 3600 this month
00:48Chutt of the main package
00:48Chutt 21k of 0.14 total
00:48Chutt 'course, that is just the source
00:48thor_ yup
00:49thor_ apt and rpms are probably an order of magnitude
00:49Chutt naw
00:49Chutt about the same or lower
00:49Chutt in total
00:49thor_ what's Jarod's guide reference ?
00:49Chutt the rpms
00:50thor_ I'd bet good money those are an order of magnitude
00:50thor_ (everyone seems to say, "I was following Jarod's guide ... ")
00:51Chutt naw
00:51thor_ well, build the net based reccomendation engine and see how many people show up ...
00:51Chutt last time i saw numbers (many months ago), it was a lot lower
00:51thor_ err, how many IP's show up
00:52Chutt heh
00:52Chutt that'd be accurate =)
00:52thor_ heh
00:52thor_ still, even 21k total at $39.99 ....
00:53Chutt $5 would be plenty =)
00:53thor_ (full charge for version upgrades, 'o course)
00:55thor_ I've said it before, but a Windows myth desktop client that could do iTunes + all the video stuff is a workable little software business
00:55Chutt yeah
00:55Chutt i dunno
00:56thor_ Qt license is something on the order of $1,000, iirc
00:56thor_ no mythbackend stuff
00:57Chutt i don't think just a frontend part would be worthwhile
01:00thor_ I think a desktop client would be very useful for rearranging stuff (playlists, photo albums, video hierarchies, etc.) .... make the linux one GPL and sell essentially the same code base for the Windows client

01:22mikegrb aye
01:22--- ---> FryGuy [] has joined #mythtv
01:22* mikegrb gives Chutt a caffinated cupcake
01:23thor_ first rule of resume reading, if someone's been sitting in the same job for _years_, toss it
01:24ofer huh? you mean you'd rather have a person thats gone job to job?
01:24thor_ yup
01:25mikegrb I'm screwed
01:25mikegrb navy--
01:25ofer heh
01:25thor_ heh
01:25mikegrb I gave them my 2 weeks notice many times
01:25mikegrb every time my various supervisors have just laughed at me
01:25thor_ well, military is a little different ... you work up to a point where you can get hired away by one of the outside firms you give jobs to
01:26thor_ :-)
01:26--- ---> G-funk|laptop [] has joined #mythtv
01:26thor_ or work with
01:26mikegrb heh yes

01:31thor_ those are always so pathetic
01:32--- ---> Feral_Kid [~Just@] has joined #mythtv
01:32Feral_Kid Any pointers on the differences between Freevo and MythTV?
01:33thor_ Freevo is vastly superior
01:34Feral_Kid thor_: Really? I got the complete opposite answer to someone who was on the #freevo channel... :)
01:34Mace68 what makes it superior... I'm just about to build a media box
01:34Chutt why would you even bother to ask that question in the #mythtv channel?
01:35Feral_Kid Chutt: For the simple purpose of trying to get an unbiased opinion of the pros and cons, before embarking on a direction...
01:35Mace68 Because I've briefly tried both and found MythTV to be superior
01:35Mace68 oh, sorry
01:36Chutt hah
01:36thor_ you are using the word "unbiased" in which sense ?
01:36thor_ ie. rabidly opinionated ?
01:38Mace68 Chutt: I wasn't sure who you directed that question to :S
01:38Chutt yeah, it wasn't to you
01:40--- <<-- Sir-Al [~EXiT@] has quit (Remote closed the connection)
01:40Mace68 But I'm really about ready to build me a MythTV box. Any opinions on vid cap cards and remotes? I won't need a tuner, I have dish network, so I'll have to use the svideo connection for that.
01:41ofer how much cpu you got?
01:41mikegrb 7.3 Ghz
01:41Mace68 Too early to tell :) haven't built it yet
01:42ofer get a pvr of some sort
01:42ofer then you can use a weak cpu
01:42ofer if you design it right, you can run with no fans
01:42G-funk|laptop| mmmm, 7.3 GHz
01:42Mace68 you mean pvr like a tivo or something?
01:43ofer 7.3ghz, that would heat the whole building
01:43ofer Mace68, no, hauppauge pvr 250 or 350
01:43Mace68 oh, ok.... heh
01:43ofer Mace68, or a dvb if you have access to the digital out of the dish
01:44Mace68 I have a P3 800 box I was considering using as well
01:44mikegrb ofer: he said dish network
01:44Mace68 Yes, I do have the optical going into my onkyo reciever right now
01:44ofer mikegrb, i dont have dish or know anybody with 'em, i just know they're digital =)
01:44mikegrb ofer: american so no dvb
01:45ofer mikegrb, k
01:45Chutt allright, website's done
01:45Chutt fun fun fun
01:45Mace68 what is dvb?
01:46Chutt tomorrow i'll have to start posting to the crappy jobs websites
01:46ofer Mace68, digital tv tuner, recieves the digital broadcast with no analog conversion
01:46Mace68 not available in the us though? bummer.
01:47Chutt thor, did i typo anything on the site?
01:47thor_ heh, didn't a guy who used to work for work at relatable, Glen .... what the hell was his last name ...
01:47Chutt [PATCH] Closed Caption fixes
01:47Chutt sweet
01:48Chutt doubt it
01:48thor_ hmm
01:48Chutt there's been 7 or 8 total people that worked here
01:48thor_ Sante Fe Institute stuff,
01:48thor_ ah
01:48Mace68 ofer: do the pvr's come with linux-compatible remotes?
01:48Chutt well, maybe one or two more, it's too late to count
01:48thor_ must have it confused with a different company
01:48ofer Mace68, i havent used them, i dunno
01:49Mace68 I guess I could get off my lazy but and go look on their web site too ;)
01:49Mace68 thanks for the suggestions, have a good evening
01:49thor_ no typos that jump out at me
01:49Chutt good
01:49Chutt i fixed a couple after posting it the first time =)
01:50Chutt but didn't see anymore
01:50Chutt thanks =)

01:52Chutt 13
01:52Chutt heh
01:52thor_ nothing in the plaintext resume, but I guess Word would have caught those
01:52Chutt yeah
01:55thor_ ... thank god you don't have a "Career Goals" or "Hobbies and Activities" section, those make me groan
01:55Chutt filled up two pages, that's more than enough =)
01:56thor_ yup
01:56thor_ I would mention the wired article
01:57thor_ a pet software project is one thing, a project that's been covered by the media is something else
01:57Chutt that wired article is consistantly in the top 5 of links to the website
01:58linagee Chutt: a two page resume?
01:58Chutt yup
01:58linagee Chutt: i thought that was a no-no.
01:58Chutt nope
01:58linagee Chutt: "always condense to one page"
01:58mikegrb linagee: Chutt is so stellar that it is impossible
01:59linagee lol
01:59linagee mikegrb: so only include the most relavent things
01:59* mikegrb hates people that say I'm sorry you are over qualified
01:59Chutt i wanted to have more than a single sentence about mythtv
01:59Chutt and extremely short descriptions of what i've done in my most recent job

04:46Omnic hrmph. doesn't look possible...
04:48o_cee you need to disable Xv
04:48o_cee search the archives
04:50Omnic yeah, thought that'd be it. :/
04:54knight- you could write some code that saves the frame to disk before it hits Xv
04:54knight- we could probably use that code for MythSecurityCam or whatever
04:55Omnic yeah, I would, if I had time to learn that particular segment of code :P
04:57knight- common excuse :P
05:04Omnic dammit, I can't disable Xv with my nvidia card.
05:06Omnic oh well, bed time.

10:22kvandivo o_cee: looks like ijr committed that change in version 1.120 of mainserver.cpp.. looks like it was "Martin Smith's DVB signal monitor stats patch."
10:22o_cee yeah, i found it..
10:22o_cee was just hoping he could fix it himself
10:23kvandivo annotate is a wonderful feature of viewcvs for anyone out there that doesn't know it
10:23o_cee ah yeah :)
10:23kvandivo mozilla's bonsai calls it 'blame' or something like that, but the idea is the same
10:23o_cee not using dvb, so i haven't noticed before.. was helping someone and got to see his statuspage with this stuff on it

11:51o_cee heh
11:51o_cee actually i think that's the mailinglist that does odd things?
11:52Mumintrollet | o_cee did you read my mail on the mailinglist, i am begining to wonder if this is not a bug in livetv and not a configuration error
11:53o_cee Mumintrollet: nope, i'm not on -users anymore
11:53o_cee i'll check the arhive
11:53Mumintrollet | ok a copy paste from the bottom then
11:53Mumintrollet | If i switch the master and slave backend by changing the ip in the settings
11:53Mumintrollet | table the problem
11:53Mumintrollet | gets reversed and i can only watch dvb channels, but if i start the slave
11:53Mumintrollet | backend and start
11:53Mumintrollet | livetv on a non dvb channel it will tune to that but it wont be able to
11:53Mumintrollet | change to dvb channels.
11:54o_cee heh, yeah well beats me
11:54Mumintrollet | oh btw when i updated to the latest cvs today my gui offset settings broke
11:55Mumintrollet | no matter what i set it always ends up in the top left corner :)
11:55* kvandivo gasps.
11:58o_cee thor_: you got any cupcakes?
11:58thor_ heh, not at the moment
11:59thor_ cup of coffee around here somewhere ...
12:01Mumintrollet | btw anyone in this channel who has any experience with slave backends ?
12:01o_cee thor_: :/
12:04* kvandivo giggles at Mumintrollet's question.
12:05* thor_ giggles at his NIC
12:05Mumintrollet | nothing wrong with mumintrolls
12:05Mumintrollet | and not its not that kind of slave :)

12:12Chutt and one guy saying 'why don't you sell support for $100 a year?'
12:13kvandivo you aren't considering those your two serious offers, are you?
12:13thor_ oh that would be a dream service
12:13Chutt 'I'd kill to never have to hear "Search the archive" again. Instead you scower the archive, document the answer in the portal and give me a link.'
12:13--- ---> choenig [] has joined #mythtv
12:13thor_ outgoing message, "Welcome to Chutt's mythtv service line, it doesn't work because you're an idiot, now go away"
12:14kvandivo tell him about "google answers"
12:14thor_ "to be insulted in spanish, push 1"
12:14Chutt kvandivo, one would involve moving to boise, id.

12:22thor_ hmm, ok
12:24o_cee Chutt: osd menu is working great :) way cool

14:52Chutt heh
14:54jams Chutt, anything change from a code point of view that might cause extra judder ?
14:54Chutt nope
14:54thor_ generic entropy
14:55Chutt video display code's been identical for months
14:55kvandivo wow.. that's actually a word.. supposedly the joining of j(erk) and (sh)udder
14:55thor_ I was thinking bovine dancing
14:56jams hmm cvs seems to have extra judder as compared to .14 well I well keep working on finding the problem
14:56jams thanks
14:56thor_ dance a little jig, shake your udder
14:56Chutt it really hasn't changed at all
14:56jams perhaps it's the higher cpu usage
14:56thor_ or all the cows in there
14:57jams heh
14:57* thor_ will shut up now
14:57Chutt you can always disable the adjust filter to get rid of that
14:57kvandivo fwiw, thor, it made _me_ smile
15:00jams heh i did read how to disable it , but i'm not for sure what it does. Guess I will go look that up.
15:01Chutt just delete the filter
15:01thor_ well, herd it out of the path
15:02* dja wants some of whatever thor is having
15:02kvandivo chocolate milk
15:02thor_ bingo

15:07* thor_ thinks everyone should just be grateful he's not forcing all his pointless ramblings to begin with the letter "m", "f", and "d"
15:08jams thor_ so when does the bovine theme come out ?
15:12thor_ "You're watching MoooTv"
15:12Chutt hrm
15:12thor_ I'm still working on the swedish chef language translations, unfortunately
15:14thor_ is that a "hrm" as in, "I've just increased perfomance by 750%," or a "hrm" as in, "my mouse odometer seems to be off by 32 pixels"?
15:15Chutt naw, a 'hrm' as in 'how do i tell someone i don't want to relocate right now, but would be more willing to consider it in a few weeks if i don't find anything else'
15:16bitbyte haha
15:16thor_ that sounds about right
15:19Chutt people prefer the .txt resume almost 4:1
15:19Chutt heh
15:21kja talk about luck;
15:24thor_ the inevitable appears to have happened
15:25thor_ and been cross posted
15:25Mumintrollet | Chutt your are Isaac ?
15:25Chutt yes.
15:25Mumintrollet | ok, im the one with backend dvb problem, hitting y only jumps between the pvr-x50 cards
15:26thor_ heh
15:26Chutt keep hitting it.
15:26Octane hit it harder
15:26kvandivo be honest. say that location is very important and you are evaluating your options and you might get back with them
15:26thor_ you might consider removing it from your keyboard and having a herd of cows stampede over it
15:26bitbyte use a stick
15:26Octane LOL
15:27Octane thor, i find elephants work much, much better
15:27Mumintrollet | can this problem be related to the card being in a slave backend ?
15:27Chutt kvandivo, that's pretty much exactly what i said =)
15:28Mumintrollet | i can move the card in to the masterbackend but its going to be really tight in a pundit so i won't do it unless it is worth a shot
15:28Chutt mumintrollet, source isn't all that complicated, figure it out :p
15:29Mumintrollet | yeah right :)
15:32Chutt try disabling one of the master backend's tuners
15:32Chutt so it only has one
15:36Mumintrollet | no, same problem
15:37Chutt oh well
15:39Octane lol, i love how the first reaction of someone finding out chutt==isaac is here is my problem and not a thank you
15:39Mumintrollet | actually he replied to my mail on the list
15:39Mumintrollet | thought it was easier
15:47Mumintrollet | it does try to switch to the card when pressing Y i get a QUERY_REMOTEENCDER 1[]:[]IS_BUSY in the log file and then it jumps to the nex PVR-x50 card
15:47Mumintrollet | and yes thank you for the help i am actually grateful
15:50Chutt code's in programs/mythbackend/mainserver.cpp
15:50Chutt GetNextFreeRecorder or something like that.

16:50o_cee it would be nice if it switched over to live tv mode tho :) and then something on the osd menu to get back to watch it in progress.. but that's a different story

20:30kja can't wait till i get my second dvb card, so i can start working on virtal dvb cards without interrupting my primary backend
20:30kja _rkulagow, is the users guide coming together?
20:31--- <<-- billytwowilly [] has quit ("Leaving")
20:32kja WX: guess not, tried in #mythtv-users?
20:34kja there's plenty of time before .15 will hit the shelves, yes?
20:35WX hah
20:35Mumintrollet | kja virtual dvb cards is the possibility to record on multiple channels at once ?
20:36kja yup, on the same mux =)
20:36WX no luck on #mythtv-users. anyone here use mythdvd to rip/encode via xvid?
20:36Mumintrollet | nice
20:37kja Mumintrollet: so you know, my conax cam was unable to decrypt multiple channels at the same time last i've tried, but i've seen on the vdr list that viaaccess does it..
20:37Mumintrollet | so for once i get an advantage with viaccess
20:38Mumintrollet | mux = frequency on dvb-c ?
20:38kja yup
20:38kja maybe it'll work, maybe not, just have to wait and see ?)
20:39Mumintrollet | out of curiosity will livetv and recording be possible at the same time ?
20:39kja yup, will make sure that only the channels on the mux is available tho
20:39Mumintrollet | that is a pretty cool feature
20:39kja i've ordered a matrix reloaded cam, maybe that'll do it :)
20:40Mumintrollet | i just hope i have two good channels i can use at the same time
20:40kja usually bout six channels on the same mux, so the chance is high..
20:41kja at least on dvb-s that is, dunno bout dvb-c
20:41kja ?
20:41Mumintrollet | i can check
20:42kja please do
20:42Mumintrollet | about 10-20 with a quick count
20:42kja wow, that must be low q unless bandwith per mux is very high on dvb-c
20:43Mumintrollet | 8 is the lowest i found but there are a 160 channels in total
20:44Mumintrollet | the ones i have are 10-15mbit and usually 720x576
20:45Mumintrollet | but some of the "imported" channels like cnn have lower resolutions due to ntsc coversion
20:45kja then the bandwith on dvb-c is much higher than that of dvb-s, which is pretty logical, really
20:45Mumintrollet | i will only be happy to help when you need some testing done
20:45kja yea, come from crappy satellites in the us, no point in using high q on low q channels =)
20:46kja sure, i'll remember that!
20:46Mumintrollet | the first one has three channels i subscribe to
20:46Mumintrollet | that should be enough to test :)
20:49kja i'll be hooking my second card up to 13 or 19 east, which each has around 500 channels each, 25-50% of which is free-to-air :)
20:50Mumintrollet | and how many of them are in languages you can understand ?
20:51kja don't need to understand the lang, just need to see a picture :)
20:51Mumintrollet | we are not allowed to mount any external antennas here so dvb-c is my only option
20:52kja but 160 channels should be enough for anyone, right?
20:53Mumintrollet | you can never have enough :)
20:53dja_ anyone tried the new tv_grab_na_dd script? :-)
20:54kja maybe chutt or friends, me and mumintrollet is in eu, so no need
20:55Mumintrollet | and its way past our bedtime
20:55kja blah, im just blabbering
20:55dja_ I guess I'll have to wait until a NA person chimes in :-)
20:55kja very
20:55Mumintrollet | btw is dvb subtitles something that you
20:56Mumintrollet | will implement ?
20:56--- <<-- Chutt [] has quit (Read error: 54 (Connection reset by peer))
20:56kja i've thought about it, but at least here teletext subtitles is more used, so that is higher on the list
20:57kja and mostly i turn off subtitles if i can, so both are low pri, but should be an easy patch
20:57Mumintrollet | personally i prefer to watch it without subtitles but when there is a german movie or something like that you are screwed

21:26Chutt he proposed an alternate fix
21:26kja mdz: it's not
21:27_rkulagow chutt: i got a response from oreilly. is the counter on the downloads page cumulative from the first tarball of 0.0, or 0.14?
21:28kja oh, my bad, thought he was adding the ifdef's, not removing, i'm stupid,[im stupid]...
21:28mdz I wanted to try to narrow down what was actually breaking it, assuming Chutt had disabled the whole thing because he didn't track down which calls were bogus
21:28mdz but I guess he did and he still disabled the whole thing :-P
21:29kja i added some xlockdisplay+qapp lock calls in a patch, and i've not seen them, but i belive ppl are seeing them in the middle of a session, and the screensaver stuff aint active then
21:30kja made the session lock on changing from live to watching here...before the changes
21:31kja mdz: thought the debug macro would be nice for you and fellow binary package maintainers?
21:32mdz kja: yes, I did notice that later on, people were saying that they still saw the errors
21:32mdz even though the screensaver stuff is disabled
21:32mdz I'm not sure whether they were up-to-date, though
21:32kja sorry for beeing to quick on the trigger :)
21:33kja belive that Ivor fellow knows what he's doing..he reverse engineered the via cle266 driver..
21:34kja except the fact that viaslice broke for me with he's latest patch, but i'm still waiting for other's to confirm, might be something wired with my mpeg2 streams
21:37kja you for sure that the ebusy return value can be cleared within the two seconds without user invention though?
