00:52--- <<-- pigeon [] has quit ("ahha!")
01:13Omnic Beirdo: Third Watch! cool! (looks like an episode we haven't seen yet...) anyway, audio was fine, thanks for that.
01:18--- ---> pigeon [] has joined #mythtv
01:22Beirdo Omnic, no problem. That was the second episode of the new season I think... well, a short chunk of it
01:23Omnic bitch, that's a really enticing teaser now :>
01:23Beirdo anyways, I'm gonna hit the sack
01:23Omnic heh... anyway, if I record a short section, would you test it?
01:23Omnic (heh.. before you retire?
01:24Beirdo I'm already falling asleep, so I doubt I could tonight
01:24Beirdo (1:30am here)
01:25Majestik Omnic: What you need?
01:25--- ---> choenig [] has joined #mythtv
01:26Omnic Majestik: just for someone to import a recording I make, and tell me if they get crackly audio when it's played back
01:27Majestik fire me a link?
01:28Omnic sec
01:29Omnic I'm on a slow link, so bear with me.
01:29Majestik No prob..
01:29Omnic (only 128k up at this stage)
01:30Majestik ouch
01:31Omnic :>
01:32Omnic nice hostname....
01:33Majestik which one?
01:33Omnic yours :>
01:33Majestik which one? :)
01:34Omnic the one you're fetching from...
01:34Majestik the rdns, or the box..
01:34Majestik ah... provider rdns
01:34Omnic sorry, yeah, rdns
01:34Majestik not my call..
01:34Majestik It's also called athlon.. guess what CPU's in it? :)
01:34Omnic a P4 ?
01:34* Omnic hides
01:34Majestik so, how do I import it into mythtv?
01:35Omnic you've got the whole thing?
01:35Majestik nah.. just prepping the questions for when it is :)
01:35Omnic I found the easiest way was to run contrib/ or something...
01:35Majestik I was trying to transcode it, but I can't give a file into mythtranscode..
01:35Omnic it asks questions about any strange files....
01:36Omnic I ran this: --dbhost=localhost 
01:36Majestik Hmm... could just play with the DB :)
01:36--- <<-- choenig [] has quit (Remote closed the connection)
01:36Omnic that's what it does... effectively
01:37Majestik Yeah.. I like the hard way :) just do the whole INSERT INTO stuff..
01:38Omnic ok, I'm going to get some dinner, I guess that may take up to an hour to download.
01:38Majestik Grr.. why can't mythtranscode just use a nuv file as a input?
01:38Majestik Yeah.. I think I'm going to sleep pretty quick, I'll take a look at it in the morning?
01:38Omnic sure...

03:23Chutt means the ivtv driver is broken, and you should go talk to them about it.

10:46Chutt nope
10:51Chutt ah
10:51Chutt silly wildgoose
10:51anduin yeah
10:51Chutt anduin, _should_ be fixed now
10:52anduin src_ctx is initilized?
10:52Chutt now it is
10:52anduin thanks
10:54Wildgoose eh, what did I do?
10:54anduin it is a tale as old as time
10:54Chutt src_ctx wasn't initialized anywhere
10:55Chutt so it was getting deleted
10:55Chutt when it wasn't ever newed
10:55Beirdo ooops... Kaboom!
10:55Wildgoose oops, sorry. Hang on I am just booting my box up right now to have a look at the code (builders here right now and the power keeps going off every 10 mins...)
10:56Chutt it's already fixed :p
10:56Wildgoose Chutt: Are you happy to commit the volume control code as proposed by Jeremiah? I am just looking at tweaking it a little the way I suggeseted, but it's such a small detail that I wondered how you wanted to proceed?
10:56Wildgoose Oh, and thanks for fixing my bug...
10:57--- ---> KillerBunny [] has joined #mythtv
10:57Chutt probably
10:57Chutt i haven't looked at his patch terribly much, but it looks ok
10:57Chutt will get to it this weekend
10:58Wildgoose ok, sure that's fine. Just wanted to know how to proceed really.
10:58Wildgoose Next stop is integration of mythmusic.
10:59Wildgoose Anyone else getting hundreds of antivirus warnings due to this latest avalanche of activity...?
10:59Chutt nope
11:00Wildgoose I was up to 105 messages just now (all from some bugger with an av which sends out warnings to "random" people)

13:51bronco1 hello everyone
13:52bronco1 I was wondering if there were any plans to develop a widescreen pip, where the two pictures are horizontally in-line?
13:52bronco1 like on most of the new hdtv's
13:56Chutt nope
13:57bronco1 if you don't mind, what is holding this back from development?
13:58Chutt no one cares about pip?
13:58Chutt the fact that only one of the images would be scaled by hardware?
13:59Chutt actually, neither would be, since you'd have to scale both
13:59Chutt so that'd be even worse
13:59bronco1 true
14:00bronco1 so mythtv would be pretty cpu intensive under this circumstance
14:00Chutt right
14:00bronco1 k, thanks
14:03--- ---> Baylink [] has joined #mythtv
14:10--- ---> kRutOn [] has joined #mythtv
14:11kRutOn Is there one person that worked on the OpenGL vsync code or was it a group effort?
14:13Chutt a couple people worked on it, why?
14:14kRutOn I am having trouble getting it to work correctly on a DVI output and a TV output on different machines. Just wondering what data I could gather to file a bug report
14:14Chutt what's the issue?
14:15kRutOn On the TV output at 800x600 with a GeForce Ti4400 it doesn't wait for vsync and draws frames as quickly as it can. The DVI output on an FX5200 uses up about 50% CPU on 544x480 MPEG2 video
14:15kRutOn and the video is choppy and unwatchable on the DVI
14:15Chutt sounds like your driver's not installed properly.
14:15Chutt otherwise, just disable the opengl sync method and don'
14:15Chutt t use it
14:16kRutOn Hm, glxinfo seems to be correct. I wonder what version of nVIDIA drivers it was tested on
14:17Chutt why on earth would you think glxinfo would have anything to do with if the driver was working properly?
14:17Chutt it's been tested on everything 53.36 or so and newer
14:19kRutOn It seems like there should at least be some error checking that can determine if you'd have this issue.
14:19Chutt how?
14:20Chutt your symptoms are common to people who fuck up their install and overwrite parts of the nvidia driver's glx libs
14:20Chutt everything the app sees looks to be normal
14:20Chutt there
14:20Chutt there's absolutely no way to test for it.
14:21kRutOn Okay, so there have been multiple peopel with this problem
14:21Chutt right, which is why the opengl sync method is disabled by default

15:21--- ---> BleedingE [] has joined #mythtv
15:50--- ---> mitchel [] has joined #mythtv
15:51mitchel quick question, can mythtv backend run off of a linux machine (fedora core 2) without a gui like X installed? i.e. can I install another machine next to each tv?
15:53Beirdo it will still need qt installed, but yeah
15:53Beirdo you will need X to configure the backend though
15:57mitchel beirdo: oh, ok, cause i have a machine running asterisk, and it has no gui, i wanted to use that also as the myth box, i have one more question, to be clear, what type of tv signal does mythtv use? adelphia (cable) or can it also do dish network or directv(satellite)
15:57Beirdo and really, we should be discussing this in -users
15:58mitchel my fault sorry
15:58kRutOn hm, does MythTV strip off the user_data portion of the MPEG when recording?
15:58mitchel moved their =)
15:59Chutt kruton, no.
16:01kRutOn I wonder if I should write CC support into the frontend or convert it to some other format before it's stored in to the NUV
16:01Chutt i don't think you're fully sure of what you're talking about.
16:02kRutOn Well, I have DVB MPEG2 streams that have CC encoded into the user_data portion. Does NUV have support for text streams?
16:03Chutt ok, now i know you don't know what you're talking about.
16:03kRutOn Why do you say that?
16:03Chutt because neither of those questions make any sense whatsoever.
16:04kRutOn I don't know the format of NUV. True.
16:04Chutt no, you don't even know what mythtv records as
16:05kRutOn I just didn't know if it strips out the user_data portion of MPEG2
16:05Chutt why would it strip out anything, when it's essentially copying from the card to disk in the case of dvb?
16:06--- <<-- mdz [] has quit (Remote closed the connection)
16:06Chutt why would the .nuv file format have anything to do whatsoever in that case?
16:06kRutOn That's why I'm asking. You don't have to be combatitive.
16:06Chutt you're asking because you're too lazy to look at code
16:07kRutOn I'm mainly asking because I'm on a cellular connection and looking at the code takes a long time.
16:08Chutt poor you
16:08--- ---> mdz [] has joined #mythtv
16:11riksta "combatitive" now theres a new one
16:12kRutOn Thanks for your help, though. Didn't mean to cause you grief.
16:13Chutt doing a tiny bit of research before asking questions makes you look a lot smarter.
16:14riksta hey Chutt i read a post about your plans to eradicate the rungbuffer with some new process...what are your plans for that?
16:14--- <<-- choenig [] has quit (Remote closed the connection)
16:14Chutt it's all on the list
16:14kRutOn Yeah, I'll just wait until I have the source tree on a local machine before thinking of anything to add.
16:14riksta oh? i'm sure that you just said "i know what i want to do, i just need to find the time"
16:14riksta ill have another look
16:15Chutt back a few months.
16:15riksta ahh rite, bleh wouldn't know what to search for, sod it
16:16--- <--- mitchel [] has left #mythtv ()

18:10kvandivo_ your nick seems to be more in the spirit of the holidays this time of year than it normally is
18:11dopester chutt: whos the guy who has cvs access who has some "scan" patch for dvb?
18:19webopold hello - one question - i got a special satelite card which needs a special frequency value to tune correctly - where do i have to fill it in - i find no other help
18:26webopold the card has a analogue satellite Tuner and a zoren encoder chip on board - anny hints? please!
18:26gr8nash Your in the wrong channel.. this is a development channel
18:26gr8nash #mythtv-users
18:26gr8nash will help
18:27webopold i know
18:27gr8nash then why post here anyway
18:27webopold i've tried it - a little talk with beirdo a a lot of talk in mythtv-de - no results
18:28webopold of course i can read topics
18:29* gr8nash shows him the hand

19:03Beached I'm just starting to look into writing a filter to expand 4:3 programs to 16:9 with little distortion in the centre of the image. Like toshiba HDTV's. so it resizes the image a little, cut's off the top and then takes the sides of the image and stretches them a bit. Is it possible to have a frame exiting from a filter larger than the one entering?
19:10dopester oh the scaled stretching?
19:10dopester where only the right and left 20-30% get stretched?
19:12--- <<-- schultmc [] has quit ("Client exiting")
19:13jams i would assume that's what he was talking about
19:14jams i personally can't stand that mode, but to each his own.
19:15dopester depends on what your watching
19:15dopester i watched some of the euro cup in italy on a tv like that and drove me mad
19:15dopester but for the news it was fine..
19:15jams for me it's anything that pans
19:15dopester yeah like soccer
19:15jams yeah
19:15dopester or football whatever ya want to call it :)
19:16jams heh no need for that discussion here :)
19:16--- ---> riksta [] has joined #mythtv
19:16dopester hey riksta.. im gonna put together patchv1 tonight
19:16riksta hey
19:16riksta cool :)
19:17dopester yeah if yer up in like 6 hours you can give it a whirl.. gonna take me a while depending on if it has issues merging the changes against current cvs
19:17riksta yeah sure, probably be tomorrow im totally whacked
19:20thor_ so, anyone know what pissed off zap2it ?
19:21dopester whats going on with zap2it?
19:21thor_ nothing, just an e-mail they apparently sent to some users
19:21jams thor_, i think most only know what that email states
19:21dopester oh
19:21--- <<-- mecraw__ [~lmarlow@] has quit ("Trillian (")
19:22thor_ odd ... only commercial MythTV boxes I know of are outside the US (aside from an occasionaly pre-built on ebay)
19:24jams hey thor_ since your here, does mfd work with apple's airport express ?
19:24thor_ not directly, no
19:25thor_ you can, of course, play myth content in iTunes, and it can be using the ae
19:25jams i c

19:26thor_ nice to figure out the protocol at some point .... what little I understand so far is that it looks to the OS like a raw soundport
19:38bline did everyone get those emails?
19:39dhofstra i would suppose so, because I did, and I'm an honest joe
19:39bline same here heh
19:41dopester mfd?
19:42GeckoFiend I didn't
19:43* GeckoFiend thinks dhofstra is shifty
19:43jams mfd is thor's super cool music daemon
19:43dhofstra heh: not anymore =)
19:43jams i didn't get the email either
19:43GeckoFiend Are you now or have you ever been a violater of the zap2it agreement?
19:43dhofstra when we find out who it is, we should slasdot their servers
19:47dhofstra GeckoFiend: I'm so shifty, it took me about an hour to figure out why people would bother sharing listings...
19:53* Beirdo just borked his PVR... Way to go, retrad
19:53Beirdo sigh. ran the CVS frontend on the Mac. oooops
19:53GeckoFiend thor_ still around?
19:54GeckoFiend doh!
19:55Beirdo ah well, I was going to put CVS on there anyways so I can compile it in debug mode
19:55Beirdo Guess that's my evening activity
19:55Beirdo sigh
19:56dopester ahh i got the zap2it email too

20:31thor_ GeckoFiend, I am now
20:32GeckoFiend thor_ I'm thinking of splitting out your zeroconf stuff out into generic threads instead of mfs specific plugin threads.. any advice before I start poking around?
20:34thor_ yes
20:34thor_ use the ones in mfe, not mfd
20:34thor_ mfd is apple code
20:34thor_ mfe is mdnsd code
20:35GeckoFiend ahhh
20:35thor_ which is much simpler
20:35GeckoFiend sweeet
20:35GeckoFiend grabbing mfe now
20:35thor_ Chutt and I had yacked about putting them in mythlib at some point, so backends could find each other, frontends could find backends, etc
20:35thor_ err, yaked
20:36thor_ makes imminent sense, I just haven't gotten around to it
20:37thor_ and if you do it nice and clean, I can rip the Apple stuff out of mfd and use your code from mythlib :-)
20:37thor_ err, libmyth
20:37GeckoFiend thor_ that's exactly why I'm grabbing it.
20:37thor_ cool
20:38thor_ NB: I've never perfectly understood how multicast DNS works .... I get the basics, and adapted example mdnsd code to the point where it works
20:38GeckoFiend What would be very nice to do is enable some sort of failover so that if the MBE goes down a slave can advertise itself as the new MBE
20:38thor_ but don't assume the stuff in mfe is the best way to do it
20:39thor_ bbiab
