00:02Chutt no
00:02--- <<-- drd [] has quit (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:02Chutt one connection is the control connection
00:03Chutt it sends commands
00:03Chutt the other connection is the data connection. aside from the ANN FileTransfer, it just gets data
00:03--- ---> drd [] has joined #mythtv
00:03Chutt when the frontend opens the control connection, it does an ANN Playback <hostname> 0, first
00:03Chutt then it opens the data connection
00:03Chutt then it sends QUERY_FILETRANSFER on the control connection
00:04Chutt then it reads data from the data connection
00:05Captain_Murdo| that's it
00:05Chutt and that's all there is to it.
00:05Captain_Murdo| I think.
00:05xris ok.
00:05Chutt hrmph
00:05Chutt geckofiend still didn't respect the safe area
00:05xris safe area?
00:05Captain_Murdo| I put this backend_command("ANN Playback 0", $host, $port); right above the ANN FileTransfer line and it downloaded a thumbnail
00:05xris but that explains the separation of backend_command backend_command2
00:06Chutt for his new theme
00:06Chutt supposed to keep some stuff clear on the edges for overscan
00:06xris Captain_Murdoch: really? sweet
00:06Captain_Murdo| he probably figured hdtv wouldn't have overscan.
00:06Chutt all of em do
00:06xris Chutt: ahh
00:06Chutt i've got about 20 pixels left + right
00:06Chutt dunno about top/bottom
00:07xris Captain_Murdoch: I'll try to replicate that on my box as soon as I'm done touching up mythweb weather
00:08Chutt heh
00:08Captain_Murdo| probably not the best place to put it, but it worked.
00:08Chutt not enough cpu for goom at full res
00:10xris Captain_Murdoch: I'll rearrange things
00:10xris I *really* want to clean up the backend_command and backend_command2 stuff
00:11Captain_Murdo| yep, I downloaded a clean copy of your new file and added that one line and it appears to have generated a pixmap and downloaded it.
00:12Chutt i should grab a fanless 6600 and just have it use component outs instead of vga
00:19xris Captain_Murdoch: sweet
00:24xris Captain_Murdoch: rock on. that solves it!
00:25xris Chutt: thanks a ton
00:26dopester got a 6600 today
00:26--- <<-- Anduin [] has quit (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
00:28xris Chutt: any specific reason why I'd need to close that socket? seems to work if I leave it open and do two ANN_filetransfers in a row
00:32Chutt not _really_
00:32Chutt but, probably should close it inbetween
00:32xris ok
00:33Chutt just to be safe
00:34xris I'll take your word for it.
00:34xris I haven't done much interapp communication like this
00:35Chutt heh
00:35Chutt i should apply patches, but, i don't really want to right now :(
00:36dopester go watch some tv then :)
00:36Chutt naw, books to read
00:37--- <<-- cmorgan [] has quit (Remote closed the connection)
00:40xris Chutt: be glad they're cheap books
00:40xris my wife's next round of book purchases will be $100-200 apiece.

00:55xris yay! such an old bug, squashed!

00:59Beirdo I remember reporting that one like a little over a year ago :)
00:59--- ---> sc00p [] has joined #mythtv
00:59Beirdo good to see it finally squashed :)
01:02xris yeah
01:02xris couple of typos later, it all seems to work
01:02xris weather.php even looks a bit nicer
01:02Beirdo sweet
01:03xris yeah
01:39--- ---> BlurredWeasel [] has joined #mythtv
01:49Chutt blah
01:49Chutt mark andersen's patch is leaking shittons of ram
01:49dopester the aussie ac3 wizard?
01:49Chutt yeah
01:52Captain_Murdo| talk about a long set of dependencies. I'm trying to apt-get qt onto this box I'm putting the air2pc in and it is installing GTK+ because of some dependency.
01:52dopester is there not some kinda USE FLAGS equilivilant in debian?
01:53--- <<-- BlurredWeasel [] has quit (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
01:53Captain_Murdo| could just install the rpms straight and ignore deps
01:53Captain_Murdo| too late now, it's been running in the background. :)
01:54xris Captain_Murdoch: that's the downfall of rpm
01:54xris or deb
01:54dopester well i can finally WATCH hd.. got my p4 3.4 almost working now.. played the superbowl with mplayer..
01:55dopester i notied that 1 glitch in the ac3 would screw up mplayer.. i wonder if that was the issue other were having.
01:58Chutt yay, and it crashes and dies after 4 or 5 channel changes.

02:30dopester er !
02:30Chutt naw
02:30Chutt i fixed it
02:31Chutt it's still a dumb way of doing things
02:31Chutt let's reinit everything!
02:31dopester something is weird with ac3 though.. could be liba52... seems like once it gets a bad packet it refuses to play again
02:31dopester not just an mplayer thing
02:31dopester i bet if i use ac3 passthrough it doesn't happen

06:50o_cee gfiend, what do you think about this for libmythui and skinning.. a debug flag that shows all containers with or without sample text, and a half transparent background in different colors.. would make it alot easier to see the different containers. (just an idea i had)
06:51o_cee and maybe a built in grid for overscan in the same manner

10:31Snow-Man Alright, I think that shit's fixed.
10:31Snow-Man php is fucking stupid.
10:32Snow-Man Everything should be back to 'normal' now.
10:32Snow-Man If anything isn't working, let me know.
10:32_rkulagow_ dopester: here?
10:33_rkulagow_ anyone: doesn't specify why you'd use XvMC_VLD support versus standard XvMC. (other than saying that it's incompatible)
10:36_rkulagow_ anyone: is the "+" to switch audio tracks for live TV only, or does it also work for folks that have mulitple audio streams recorded (like the DVB people seem to have)
11:00Dibblah It does multiple streams once the latest patch-set is applied, AFAIK.
11:03Dibblah ... But I can't see any CVS commits, so I'm not sure. Sorry to waste your time :(

13:54Chutt yeah, but it's a pain
13:54Chutt the theme _should_ just respect the safe area
13:54Chutt all themes should

14:18Chutt i'm too busy to do something right now, especially since it's a 3 character change anyone else can do
14:18_rkulagow_ well then, allow me.

14:58Chutt thanks =)
15:33GeckoFiend_ I ran my screenshots past some of the
15:34GeckoFiend_ UI folks here got some good ideas on how to improve it
15:35Chutt heh
15:36Chutt there were a few text bits that weren't lining up right in the new theme
15:36Chutt that i noticed last night =)
15:36Chutt and, could you increase the height of the blank image used for the buttons on the main menu?
15:36Chutt that's what's causing them to be cut off on the very bottom (g's mainly) and the alttext to be used in most places
15:37Chutt i fixed titivillus last week or so
15:55--- ---> jmk_ [~jmk@] has joined #mythtv
15:56Chutt what's the ui folks have to say, though?
16:01--- <<-- Netslayer [] has quit (Remote closed the connection)
16:03--- <<-- choenig [] has quit (Remote closed the connection)
16:04GeckoFiend_ The biggy was to punch up the alpha on the lighter grey so the background's highlites don't bleed through as much.
16:04GeckoFiend_ I'll be bringing my LCD and a spare box in next week so one of them can go over all the font and shoaw colors
16:06Chutt cool
16:06Chutt i did notice that the epg looked a _lot_ brighter/more pastely than everything else
16:07GeckoFiend_ Chutt yeah it's a byproduct of light colors being used on top of that light gray. I'll probably make that background behind the GPE the dark grey
16:07Chutt cool.
16:07Chutt the theme looks nice, though
16:08Chutt everything's very sharp =)
16:09Cardoe Chutt: thinking today or tomorrow?
16:09Cardoe for release
16:11Chutt got one blocker-type bug
16:11Chutt if it's fixed tonight, then tonight
16:12Chutt you have anything pending?
16:13--- <<-- jmk [~jmk@] has quit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
16:13Chutt you notice that i fixed the parallel make issue, btw?
16:14--- <<-- Anduin [] has quit ()
16:15Cardoe Chutt: anything pending I don't have patches completed for
16:15Cardoe so.. nope.
16:15--- ---> Anduin [] has joined #mythtv
16:16Chutt and the ffmpeg people fixed one of their more broken inline asm statements, which should help with newer versions of gcc
16:17Cardoe I think I actually pulled their CVS from there.
16:18Chutt that won't quite work with myth, since i've got a bunch of local changes/fixes
16:18Cardoe cause I've got 3.4.3
16:18Cardoe well.. I replaced a section
16:18Cardoe I don't really remember what.
16:18Chutt i'm synced up with their cvs tree, though
16:19Cardoe I wish they packaged their libs seperately.
16:19Chutt heh
16:19Cardoe it'd be easier for everyone
16:19Cardoe so many programs out there just copy in their libav* stuff
16:19Cardoe right into their source tree
16:19Chutt that's because they insist on not supporting shared libraries
16:19Chutt and don't care at all about binary compatability
16:20Beirdo or documentation
16:20Chutt docs don't really matter :p
16:20Beirdo heh, they sure make life simpler though
16:20Cardoe Beirdo: eh.. documentation... minor technicality.
16:21Cardoe it'd be nice if they got a clue though
16:21Cardoe I guess I gotta finish up my Gentoo install guide tonight then.
16:21Chutt whether i release tonight or not really depends on bruce + david, though
16:22Chutt i can't reproduce their problem, but i'll wait until they say it's ok
16:22Cardoe well if you said you're holding off till sunday-ish
16:22Cardoe I would have just put off the doc.
16:22Chutt ah, heh
16:22Chutt i'm _hoping_ for tonight, still
16:22Cardoe should hopefully reduce the gentoo populace in #mythtv-users
16:23Cardoe Cause I've talked to all the wiki guys and gentoo install guides and forums instructions
16:23--- <<-- _rkulagow_ [] has quit (Remote closed the connection)
16:23Cardoe about consolidating and just linking to the "official" doc.
16:23Chutt would be nice
16:23Chutt but they all like doing their own things
16:23Cardoe since every doc out there has some stuff in correct.
16:24Chutt and every time i suggest having _one_ source for docs, no one likes it
16:24Cardoe I agree with that too
16:24Cardoe As far as people doing their own thing.
16:24Beirdo having anciliary documentation for clarification isn't the end of the world, but rewriting the docs rather than using the real one... that's lame
16:24--- ---> choenig [] has joined #mythtv
16:24Chutt right, but anything worthwhile should be in the 'official' set
16:25Cardoe I'm gonna link a whole lot to the docs.
16:25Beirdo correct :)
16:25Cardoe but Gentoo specifics... like setting up ivtv
16:25Cardoe and modules and configuring the kernel
16:25Cardoe I'll handle that.
16:25Cardoe and people LOVE to recommend love-sources for Gentoo.
16:25Cardoe they're the same people that have more then CFLAGS="-march=i686 -O3 -pipe"
16:26Chutt love-sources?
16:26Baylink Chutt: to recap my thoughts on -dev the other day, it's not a case of they don't like having one source, it's a case of the malleability of that source.
16:26Chutt baylink, well, then why aren't people pushing real changes back up?
16:26Baylink CVS is easy for you coders...
16:27Baylink What format would you like those in?
16:27Chutt text is fine
16:27Chutt i think rkulagow would accept html, too
16:27Chutt sgml would be preferred, but...
16:27Cardoe Chutt: love-sources are vanilla kernel with -mm patches + other random stuff that -mm didn't include... specifically a crazy scheduler.
16:27Baylink Yeah, but diffs? Or are informal comments ok?
16:28Chutt cardoe, ah. stupid stuff =)
16:28Chutt baylink, diffs would be best, but i imagine anything's fine
16:28Beirdo they should call that riceboy-sources
16:29Baylink Ok. Cause even just for doco, figuring out how to create diffs that the maintainer can apply reasonable is non-trivial, if you aren't already a coder.
16:29Cardoe Chutt: Baylink does have a point though. People are encouraged to try CVS to test bug fixes or new features, etc... but the docs never reflect the changes needed to use CVS
16:29Cardoe Baylink: diff -Nur old new
16:29Baylink I've recently linked the fulltext site of The CVS Book on the wiki; hopefullt that will help.
16:29Cardoe or if you're incapable... diff old new
16:29Chutt cardoe, well, that's _mostly_ because there generally aren't any, and those changes are all in the cvs logs =)
16:29Chutt i dunno
16:29Cardoe Chutt: yeah
16:29Cardoe Baylink: so stay on top of it for the rest of the world
16:30Cardoe submit changes that are marked **CVS ONLY**
16:30Chutt maybe i should get the wiki moved to
16:30Beirdo and it would require someone to constantly be updating the docs for the changes as they come out. That's a lot of work
16:30Baylink I would love to.
16:30Cardoe and whent he new version comes out... it's trivial to strip off **CVS ONLY**
16:30Chutt if someone else would take care of maintainence
16:30Beirdo Chutt: I'm all for that, but please not moin :) mediawiki is much easier to deal with
16:30Baylink But I'm as busy as Beirdo. I'm hoping to con Laga into doing it; he's 17, he should have Copious Free Time.
16:30Chutt and rkulagow didn't mind using it
16:31Baylink Hey, we're at 0.16+. We've got plenty of time to sort it out before 1.0
16:31Beirdo I'd be happy to help with maintenance, and I'm sure Baylink would too
16:31* Baylink grins
16:31Chutt there's no such thing as 1.0
16:31* Baylink roars
16:31--- <<-- CanadaBoy [] has quit (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
16:31Chutt no, the release number is just that - the number of the release :p
16:31Chutt 17 will be the 17th release
16:31Beirdo with a 0. in front of it :)
16:32Chutt right, but that's so i can say 'it's only 0.16'
16:32Chutt 'see the 0.'?
16:32Chutt heh
16:32Cardoe he's doing the gaim trick
16:32Baylink Hey, just call it "release 17". Less is up to release 194, I think?
16:32Cardoe Baylink: gaim trick.. ;)
16:33Chutt it's easy, and i don't have to worry about version numbers
16:33Baylink Indeed.
16:33Chutt i'm all about making stuff easy for me
16:34Beirdo for sure. :)
16:35Baylink Seems to me the real trick is extracting the stuff back out to the "master" documentation file.
16:35Chutt yeah
16:35Chutt and since no one wants to do that, maybe i should just give in and accept a wiki
16:35Chutt as long as i don't have to police it...
16:35--- <<-- choenig [] has quit (Remote closed the connection)
16:35Cardoe wiki's are dubious
16:36Cardoe cause sometimes idiots think they know better
16:36Chutt i generally don't like em, but...
16:36Cardoe then everyone else.
16:36Cardoe Chutt: I feel the same way
16:36Chutt if all the people writing stuff want to use it, then maybe
16:36Baylink I am, actually, working on extracting from MediaWiki to DocBook; there's a project in pause somewhere, and I'm trying to locate the people.
16:37Baylink We could then lock and tag pages before a release, extract, and convert.
16:37Beirdo We'd have enough people around to police it, I'd think
16:38Baylink It really only takes 5 or 6 people to monitor a wiki this size, from what I can see. That's what .info is doing it with now, more or less.
16:38Baylink I don't like cars, either, cause you can kill people with them. :-}
16:38Cardoe but don't use moin!
16:39Beirdo and I think I can convince xris to help :)
16:39Baylink Media sets up in about 38 seconds.
16:39Chutt baylink, so, think i should move it all to
16:40Chutt since you seem to contribute to it on .info a bunch..
16:41Baylink Well, while .info could use some overall cleanup, I'm not sure you couldn't just alias it to, assuming we can convince David to change engines.
16:41Baylink There's the whole territoriality thing in open source :-)
16:41Baylink But DG ain't too bad about that.
16:41Chutt i don't like depending on other machines for stuff, though
16:42Chutt that's all, and now that snowman fixed the lists, the main server's generally pretty unloaded
16:42Baylink Well, no reason you *couldn't* host it, if it's convenient. Be nice to have o have it all on one wiki; negotiation with DG would seem indicated.
16:42Chutt ok
16:42Baylink Typing, me? :-)
16:43Chutt bah, typing's optional
16:43Baylink (Does lirc do speech rec?)
16:43Beirdo if so there'd be a lot of unprintable comments from me in -users

17:49fman how to get a backtrace ?
17:49fman yes
17:49Chutt it's in the docs.

18:54Chutt oh yeah, i wanted to go through the settings and make sure they all fit properly
18:55o_cee ok then that's one for you, i just changed them to vertical instead. compiling it now. shouldn't be any problem fitting in height
18:56Chutt going to commit whatever?
18:56o_cee yeah testing it in 3 seconds
18:56Chutt i'll start on rearranging things once you've done that

19:10Chutt depends if david/bruce fixes that bug he mentioned last night
19:10xris heh
19:10xris ok
19:10xris just wanted to make sure you gave me enough time to get home and fix a "bug" that Beirdo found
19:10--- <<-- lotia [] has quit (Client Quit)
19:10Beirdo heh
19:10Beirdo It's not important enough to push off release though
19:10Chutt it won't be until fairly late tonight
19:11xris oh, and you can tell your coworkers that they did a good job on the linux driver. all of my computer problems for the past couple of days were directly related to trying to run dual-head on ati cards.
19:11xris Beirdo: well, would be enough to push it back 10 minutes, though.
19:11xris switched to nvidia and it worked perfectly.
19:11Chutt heh
19:11Chutt i've never talked to any of those guys
19:11xris heh
19:11Chutt apparently, they all hate linux now, though
19:11Beirdo heh.
19:12xris even my kvm switch behaves in windows (before, the dvi port on the windows box wouldn't activate if the linux box was plugged into the kvm)
19:12Chutt too many distros, stuff changing, etc
19:12xris go figure
19:12Beirdo doing driver devel in Linux does give headaches too
19:12Chutt box is back up
19:12Chutt btw
19:13xris nice. no sound on the new box.
19:13Baylink Did a transcode audio sync bug get fixed in the last couple weeks?
19:14xris aha
19:14xris "headphone" volume.
19:14Chutt i don't think so

19:55Beirdo holy crap, that's not good at all
19:55Chutt eh, it's fixed now
19:56Chutt not exactly sure _why_ it was using so much ram
19:57dopester Mark Anderson patch :)
19:57Chutt naw, i fixed that too
19:58--- User: *** splat1 is now known as splAt1
19:58dopester blue looks bad in ws.. it looks like a buncha eggs instead of the neat circles.. heh
19:58Chutt use the new theme
19:59dopester i saw that one.. looks good
19:59dopester your talking about minimalist?
20:00GeckoFiend I toyed with the idea of using the orbs like blue in it. Still migth try it out to see how it looks
20:00Chutt geckofiend, hey, i was thinking
20:00Chutt for the minimalist theme
20:00GeckoFiend that's dangerous
20:00Chutt why don't we line up buttons left->right?
20:00Chutt just a single row
20:01Chutt got tons of space
20:01GeckoFiend yeah that'd work
20:01Chutt kinda like the button bar in osx or whatnot
20:01GeckoFiend heh I was just about to say "not like there's not lots of space"
20:01Chutt have the watermark be right above the text or whatnot
20:01Chutt well, it'd be a button icon then, not a watermark
20:02Chutt could even make it grow when selected
20:02GeckoFiend I like it!
20:02GeckoFiend I started a download of some nice looking greyscale icons from kdelook but the DL was corrupted :(
20:02Chutt and when we switch to mythui, can make it all smooth moving and stuff
20:03Chutt ooooh
20:03GeckoFiend it'd be nice if we could use SVGs and then smoothly zoom them
20:03Chutt that'll be cool.
20:03Chutt ah, i dunno
20:03dopester yeah i will have to make a dish moving animation then for my dish :)
20:04GeckoFiend I might just use color icons and greyscale them in photoshop
20:04dopester could also do some funny stuff for signal loss.. make gremlins start eating an antenna or something.. hehe
20:05Chutt make em greyscale when not selected, colorized when selected..
20:09Beirdo hopefully the smooth moving stuff doesn't eat too much CPU on non-OpenGL setups :)
20:09Chutt it's disabled there.
20:10Beirdo whew :)
20:10Beirdo one of these days I'll get OpenGL working right on the ATI card
20:10Beirdo or just put in an nVidia with component out
20:10Beirdo :)
20:15Beirdo eye candy is cool :)
20:15Chutt eh
20:16Chutt as long as it doesn't negatively impact the useability
20:16GeckoFiend hrm Looks like the best I'll be able to manage is two rows.
20:16Chutt really?
20:16Beirdo true true...
20:16Beirdo breaking functionality for eye candy would be... Microsoft-ish
20:17GeckoFiend unless I use a really small font and blank image.
20:17GeckoFiend I tried using a 200px blank background, forced it into alt-text mode
20:18GeckoFiend and that's even with dropping the font 3 points
20:18Chutt you should be able to fit at least 6 items across, i'd think
20:18Chutt make it tall enough for two lines of text, and it should wrap like blue does
20:19GeckoFiend ahhh let me try that
20:24GeckoFiend what's the deal with the <area> tag for the text?
20:24Chutt area within the button pixmap
20:25Chutt lets you do the circles like blue does
20:25Chutt basically
20:25GeckoFiend I tried using 0,0 thinking that would be top left, ended up with the text starting off the blank image
20:26Chutt i don't remember how it works, exactly =)
20:29GeckoFiend hrm my image is 206x200, and I gave it a button area of 0,115,1280,600 and it refuses to got 6 across. must be some padding or something
20:30Chutt dunno
20:30Chutt i believe there's a tag to disable all the padding
20:30GeckoFiend I'll take a look
20:33Chutt ah
20:33Chutt there's no way to disable x spacing
20:33Chutt you can disable y spacing, though
20:33--- <<-- mecraw [~mecraw@] has quit ()
20:33Chutt didn't need to have a x-spacing disable before =)
20:33--- ---> lotia [] has joined #mythtv
20:36Chutt so, maybe say 3% on all edges, btw?
20:38GeckoFiend heh // keep the rows balanced
20:38GeckoFiend if (numbuttons <= 4)
20:38GeckoFiend {
20:38GeckoFiend if (columns > 2)
20:38GeckoFiend columns = 2;
20:38GeckoFiend }
20:38GeckoFiend else
20:38GeckoFiend {
20:38GeckoFiend if (columns > 3)
20:38GeckoFiend columns = 3;
20:38GeckoFiend }
20:38GeckoFiend that's why it never goes to 6 columns
20:38Chutt heh
20:38Chutt it's for blue
20:39Chutt add in a test for rows == 1, and it should be fine

20:43darkfrog GeckoFiend, I've got photoshop. :-p
20:43darkfrog hehe
20:44GeckoFiend darkfrog so do I unfortunatly
20:45GeckoFiend I want to use GIMP I really do but I've been spoiled
20:45darkfrog GeckoFiend, I'm in the same boat...I own Photoshop and Illustrator at home, but at work I have to use GIMP (I know...seems like it should be the other way around)
20:46darkfrog GeckoFiend, don't suppose you know much about LIRC?
20:46GeckoFiend darkfrog that's not really a topic for this channel see:/topic
20:46darkfrog that's MythTV related development...
20:47GeckoFiend oh? how so? planning on improving the lirc interface?
20:47darkfrog Yes, actually writing a real one in Java
20:48darkfrog The one they release for Java is nothing more than an interface into the system specific one...defeats the purpose of having it in Java.
20:48darkfrog I'm trying to avoid looking at C code though. :o
20:50GeckoFiend not to be an ass but, how is a new vesion of lirc written in java mythtv releated? mythtv isn't in java and the existing lirc works just fine...
20:51darkfrog ...come on...where else can I go to get any specifics on LIRC from a person?
20:53GeckoFiend an lirc channel? the lirc mailing list?
20:54GeckoFiend chutt: any reason for the "must have room for at least 2 rows" thing? if not I'm gonna change it to one.
20:55GeckoFiend I'm really thinking we need a horizontal tag for mythui to allow horizontal scrolling
20:59Chutt probably
20:59Chutt i don't remember the reason
20:59Chutt probably was for blue
21:00GeckoFiend The more I get into this the more problems I uncover.
21:01GeckoFiend buttons aren't drawing right when you change menus.
21:01GeckoFiend might be the text blank image drawing over the text not sure

21:31Chutt and maybe lose the outline..

21:43defaultro One of the errors I'm getting is Transport Stream Continuity Errors
21:43Chutt that's a dvb issue
21:43defaultro ok
21:43Chutt most likely, anyway
21:43defaultro cool
21:43defaultro I will post it then to linuxdvb
21:44defaultro anyways, are you also using a dvb driver?

23:00Captain_Murdo| sweet, I'm watching HDTV. since it's my last card, it started up in LiveTV right away.
23:00Captain_Murdo| thanks dopester. :)
23:01Torq I'm very jealous
23:02dopester how many stations do you get?
23:04Captain_Murdo| not sure of proper stations teminology, but 8 distinct stations, 19 channels?
23:04dopester 8 multiplexes
23:04dopester 19 virtual channels (for atsc)
23:04Captain_Murdo| ok, wanted to say transponders but that didn't sound right. :)
23:04dopester or 19 programs for generic mpeg transport
23:05dopester yeah thats why i changed the tables to multiplex
23:05dopester more universal sounding
23:06Captain_Murdo| and on my athlon 1333, I can actually watch some of them. no way my master frontend will though since it's only a 466Mhz Celeron. plan on getting a better system and hooking up to my projector though.
23:06dopester yeah im trying to get my new p4 to play back right
23:07dopester its plenty fast enough but on my 27" 4:3 tv its zooming everything now
23:09--- ---> Hamstaman_ [] has joined #mythtv
23:09Captain_Murdo| to get good playback I should get at least a 2.4Ghz P4 or Athlon 3000+?
23:10dopester i dunno i got a p4 3.4 which is overkill
23:10dopester mplayer takes about 30% cpu to playback 720p
23:10Captain_Murdo| have to let my wife see the quality, then she won't mind.
23:10dopester but in myth its about 50% for the same videos
23:10dopester yeah i was playing it on my monitor before and was blown away
23:12Captain_Murdo| I've got a few samples from people before to test commercial flagging with, so I knew what to expect, just didn't think it would work this well right off with my old antenna and cable. I didn't get anything detected when I scanned my cable, so I guess nothing is on there.
23:13dopester did you get any locks but no channels?
23:13Captain_Murdo| I only have the basic service and a cablemodem though, nothing special because I have dishnetwork for most stuff.
23:13Captain_Murdo| I got 1 I think.
23:13dopester ooo.. do i have zoom mode turned on i wonder..
23:19Captain_Murdo| dopester: do I have to have the DVB kernel on a box to compile Myth with DVB support? I'm wondering if I need to keep 2 copies of Myth since only my test dev box (now maybe slave backend) has the air2pc in it but my main workstation doesn't. usually I compile 1 copy on my main box and just "make install" everywhere else.
23:20Captain_Murdo| or can I just get away with dvb-kernel?
23:20dopester naw you just need the headers
23:20dopester it won't work without drivers of course but compilation just needs hte headers
23:21Captain_Murdo| ok, I'll try it. thanks. makes it much nicer if I can compile on the faster box considering my slave is only a P3-1Ghz and my frontend is the slow celeron I mentioned earlier. :) with the air2pc, I've now spent more on a capture card than I paid for either the slave or the frontend.
23:23dopester heheh
23:23dopester ok im completely confused.. all my video is getting zoomed in.. probbably a -users question really.. first time i hooked this 6600 up to my tv..

23:50Captain_Murdo| can I just copy mplexid, serviceid, and atscsrcid to another row and it will tune correctly?
23:51Captain_Murdo| trying to figure out the best way to fixup my channels table since mythfilldatabase ran and filled in dups for all the channels it detected during scanning.
23:51Chutt hrmph

23:51Captain_Murdo| yeah, that theme is huge.
