00:05Chutt actually, all throughout the UI, nothing fits anymore
00:05Chutt text is all over the borders
00:05Chutt looks sloppy
00:06Chutt geckofiend, are you running at 100x100 dpi?
00:14Chutt stuff looks bad even at the defaults, let alone the res i need to run on my tv =)

01:02dopester is this beatup gecko day? :)
01:03Chutt heh
01:03Chutt naw, just using the theme since my wife likes it
01:04dopester sounds like even if it blinds you the wife still overrules :)
01:05dopester oh chutt there is looking to be really good hope for atsc alternatives and real opencable options in a few months
01:05Chutt that's cool.
01:06dopester the fusion hdtv gold3 has mac drivers that are opensource
01:06dopester and b2c2 is coming out with a qam card that can do us style fec
01:06dopester both of which are already working in linux just the tuners might not be supported
01:07Chutt nifty.
01:07dopester but writing a tuner driver is meerly getting the datasheet and sending the right things over the i2c bus
01:07--- ---> Netslayer [] has joined #mythtv
01:07dopester have you seen "cablecard" before?
01:09Chutt nope
01:10Chutt hrm, back to gant for a bit, i guess
01:10dopester its an opencable cam module.. electricaly identical to dvb cams, and from the small ammount of info i can get from without an nda it looks like the protocol is just a tad different than the dvb version..
01:11dopester let me see if i can dig up a link.. i know time warner rents then for 1.75 a month here
01:12dopester so if any us qam cable cards come out that have ci ports getting it to work might not be very hard..
01:12dopester then would you care about dvb? :)
01:12Chutt eh
01:13Chutt maybe
01:13Chutt time for bed
01:13dopester yeah same here.. take it easy

11:46o_c Chutt: did you see my messages from last night?
11:46--- User: *** o_c is now known as o_cee
11:46Chutt yes
11:47Chutt none of that data is consistantly correct, so it can't be used.
11:47Chutt the programid is always correct, and it completely superceedes anything else, so it can
11:47o_cee with dd?
11:47Chutt i really don't see a need for _another_ id to be used in dup checking, if there's already a field in the database for one
11:48o_cee previously-shown, i found 'originalairdate' in the db. will put it there.
11:48o_cee another id? you mean the previously-shown date?
11:49Chutt yes
11:49Chutt like you asked about
11:50o_cee yeah, no guess i'll just add it for display purposes as of now and try the generate ids. but we're not getting the same good episode/series info from all channels.
11:50o_cee and the program-description thing?
11:50o_cee does dd provide that?
11:50Chutt nope
11:51o_cee too bad :/
12:01o_cee need to get the data into the db first.. or, get the data to the .xml in the first place ;)
12:01o_cee then i'll see if i can add some stuff like that
12:06--- ---> choenig [] has joined #mythtv
12:10Chutt geckofiend, the text area for the menus was slightly too short - i just committed a fix to cvs for it, but you may want to change the numbers =)

12:15Chutt heh
12:16Chutt geckofiend, also, i think that the font bases and stuff aren't getting reloaded properly on theme change
12:16o_cee Chutt: anything special your wife doesn't like about gant? :)
12:16Chutt o_cee, i dunno, i think she just liked the blue better
12:17o_cee experimenting a little with other bg's
12:22o_cee no orange though, heh
12:23Chutt heh
12:24Chutt neat, new pda for work shipped
12:24Chutt should get it friday, stupid holiday :(
12:24o_cee and more like the old one
12:24o_cee ooh :) what holiday is that?
12:24Chutt thanksgiving
12:25Chutt ah well, at least i'll get it this week
12:25o_cee ah
12:25Beirdo I was just thinking... Happy Turkey Day to all Americans :)
12:26o_cee ah need to get some dinner and stuff, ttyl, let me know what you think of those screens ;)
12:28o_cee as well. show it to your wives and lemme know ;) later
12:28GreyFoxx Mmmmmm Turkey Day

14:53eli anybody here?

15:56GeckoFiend Chutt I noticed that withthe fonts. Planned on looking into it over the long weekend
16:05--- <<-- stevenh [~xev@] has quit ("Leaving")
16:13--- <--- eli [~ebarnett@] has left #mythtv ()
16:16GeckoFiend chutt: the font thing is fixed. Just did a full CVS update i'll check in in after that
16:37Chutt cool
16:38o_cee diff --minimal makes the diffs smaller right? like good for translation patche
16:39GeckoFiend I had forgotten to reset the parsefonts flag when the reloadtheme was called.
16:40Chutt ah, something simple =)
16:41o_cee i see a very odd thing when reloading gant, the selection goes to the top item but it's only half orange after the reload.. is that just me?
16:43o_cee GeckoFiend: i god an answer from the author of those bg's with a small tutorial on how to do them.. not alot but i might give it a shot later
16:43GeckoFiend o_cee yeah, I've seen it with most themes. The highlite doesn't get completely redrawn or something
16:46Chutt geckofiend, i'm not ragging on you or the theme, btw =) i was just pointing out stuff i saw, since my wife wants to use it instead of gant now
16:46o_cee *ahem* :)
16:46GeckoFiend Chutt not a problem. I WANT people to find flaws.
16:46o_cee guess i'll need to do some work to win her back, hehe
16:47GeckoFiend sad thing it *I* don't use titivillus anymore. my wife and duaghther saw the new blue and made me switch our main box over
16:48Chutt heh
16:48Chutt i don't like the menus in blue anymore
16:48Chutt and it's too bright, overall, i think
16:48GeckoFiend yeah it could stand to be darkened a bit.
16:48o_cee i like the graphit color for gant. better contrast overall, need to muck with the colors though
16:49GeckoFiend o_cee yeah I liked the shot you posted
16:50o_cee i'll use it for a couple of days and see how it feels. but i'll need to change like all colors, and tone it over a little to blue. and find some good highlight color instead of orange
16:50o_cee brown is nice as well, but it gets to light
16:52o_cee Chutt: you know there's something wrong with viewcvs right? when you're in uhm logview. someone posted a fix a while ago
16:52Chutt something to do with branch view?
16:52Chutt that myth doesn't use, so it doesn't really matter much? =)
16:52o_cee "An Exception Has Occurred"
16:52--- <<-- jams [] has quit (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
16:52o_cee at the bottom
16:53Chutt yeah, that's with the branch stuff
16:53o_cee still works, but
16:53--- ---> jams [] has joined #mythtv
16:53o_cee ok
16:53Chutt i don't really care about it :p
16:53o_cee m'kay :)
16:53Chutt it'll get fixed whenever debian fixes it and we update the install on the server
16:54o_cee GeckoFiend: need to take a look at your font inheritance thingie
16:57jams o_cee, given the choice the wife prefers gant_graphit.png
16:58o_cee jams: thanks. it seems to win
17:01o_cee would it make sense to have the bg in 1280x1024 so that downscaling to hd resolutions or whatever is better? i mean everyone is not using 800x600 anymore, or how's that scaling doing its thing?

18:54o_cee <font name="description" base="info">
18:54o_cee <shadow>1,1</shadow>
18:54o_cee </font>
18:54o_cee i'm missing the point..?
18:54o_cee just started looking at it
18:56--- <<-- Majestik [] has quit ("Leaving")
19:21--- ---> linuxwhore [] has joined #mythtv
19:24GeckoFiend it's a placeholder. that way I can change the descriptions in the program guide independent of the info font
19:29o_cee okay
19:29* o_cee is not confused, not at all
19:29o_cee :)
19:36o_cee GeckoFiend: <outline> not possible?
19:41--- <<-- cmorgan [] has quit (Remote closed the connection)
19:45GeckoFiend o_cee is that supported by the main fonts? I thight that was just for the menu fonts
19:45o_cee i'm looking at qt docs now, trying to find it.. never tried it before i think
19:45o_cee would be nice
19:46GeckoFiend looking at the code now. it doesn't look like it is.
19:46Chutt it'll be supported in mythui
19:46Chutt but not before then
19:47o_cee oh okay then.
19:49o_cee damn would need a way to bind a key to reloadtheme :)
19:51riksta Chutt: when are you planning on looking at redoing the ringbuffer?
19:51o_cee i'll wait for the new code instead.. feels like a better time to re-do pretty much everything
19:53o_cee GeckoFiend: <textarea name="messageplay" draworder="0"> can i right align the text in the one?
19:56o_cee found it
20:03o_cee status screen, tuner selection. imo the selector shouldn't be visible unless you're in the right hand side of the display, kind of confusing.
20:10o_cee damn ui.xml is big. would be nice to do #include to be able to split it up
20:11o_cee nighty all, got some ideas i need to sleep on :)
20:16Beirdo night, o_cee :)
