11:25Captain_Murdo| -dev post synopsis... "I'm a moron and upgraded to latest mythtv CVS and I don't follow the commit logs. Now all my plugins are broke. When are you gonna fix it?"
11:28Anduin In all fairness it was the last line, who reads the last line!
11:28Captain_Murdo| :)
11:29Anduin I knew it was broken when I updated, my only concern is with helping fix it if that will make it happen faster.
11:30Captain_Murdo| I updated just so I could test compile it to give it exposure. I only compile the plugins on my dev box if I have to touch one of them for some reason or when I compile a new "release" (aka cvs update) to put on my production boxes.
11:45kvandivo amazing how many bits can be sent over the ether for useless discussion

12:15Chutt anduin, the plugins should be converted more quickly - they're already fairly close to what's needed.

13:31Chutt i believe it's being done, but, if you want to possibly duplicate effort.. :p
13:32--- <<-- Octane [] has quit (Remote closed the connection)
13:33--- <--- steve_k [] has left #mythtv ("Client exiting")
13:43Anduin Yeah, it is the duplicate effort I was trying to save, if it isn't in by tonight then I'll risk duplication.

14:17Captain_Murdo| Chutt, I'm compiling the 2 dvb compile fix patches from Daniel & John right now and will commit in a few minutes if it compiles OK.
14:17Chutt great
14:19--- <<-- lotia [~lotia@] has quit ()
14:20Captain_Murdo| went to bed last night before my test compile finished and didn't get a chance to look at it this morning so I assumed it went ok when I didn't see others complain. I have been able to compile with DVB support on my dev box and just "make install" that to my air2pc slave without any problems though, so I can just keep 1 copy of the tree to save time/space.
14:40Anduin So MSqlQuery has no default ctor, or a ctor which takes a query, is this intentional? (It would seem having a default which just did ::InitCon wouldn't be too evil a default)
14:41Chutt yeah
14:41Chutt it was to make the conversion more obvious - ie., break all the old stuff
14:42Chutt it was a realy big change :(
14:42Chutt really, too.
14:44Chutt i figure once everything's fixed, we can do a big search'n'replace and move everything that does MSqlQuery(::InitCon) to just MSqlQuery()
14:44Anduin Yeah, it just catches the case where you weren't passing a db in anyway though right? Or might need to pass in the new query info... I guess.
14:44Anduin Ok.
14:44Chutt there's only a couple cases where we _don't_ want to grab a new connection from the pool.
14:45Anduin Yeah, that was what I was thinking... took a look at the first few required changes and then got confused by the fact that what I want most often isn't the default.
14:46Anduin No matter really, just checking.
14:46Chutt what'd you mean about the 'no new deps' thing the other day?
14:46thor_ is avalanche (sp?) working on modules, or should I start with, say, mythdvd ?
14:46Chutt he was going to do em, but i don't know what his schedule is like
14:46Anduin Chutt - maybe my too liberal interpretation of what you mean when you say no new deps. When I had looked at doing SOAP or SOAP like axis seemed the easy choice
14:47thor_ k
14:47Chutt for a new _external_ dep, it has to be available everywhere, in the default distros
14:47Chutt i don't have a problem integrating things into the source
14:47Chutt and a new build-time only dep is fine
14:47Anduin Chutt - yeah, I was starting to think that might be the case.
14:48Chutt build-time only external dep, that is
14:48Chutt so if it was some preprocessor or whatnot, etc..
14:48Chutt if soap can be made reasonably fast, i don't see why it can't be used
14:48Chutt i think i'm being reasonable wrt all that
14:49Anduin Yeah, I don't really but into the current MythSOAP plans, I was going to extract the protocol portion and reuse that, maybe use wsdl for clients that can use it...
14:49Anduin er buy
14:51Chutt hell, it'd be nice to push the networking layer to another library
14:51Chutt i wouldn't have to maintain it anymore =)
14:51Anduin I would like a new myth protocol though, I just didn't want to encourage anyone to go away and come back with a new protocol, I'm certain more people than just me would like to have at least an opportunity to look at it beforehand.
14:53--- ---> gearz [] has joined #mythtv
14:57Chutt apparently, i need to change my release schedule to put out a new release after every bugfix
14:57johnp__ don't we all :P
14:57Chutt 0.18's mid march, btw.
14:58Chutt hopefully i'll get my air2pc setup and bang on the dvb stuff myself a bit
14:58johnp__ BTW, I've nearly got scanwiz into some kind of shape. I'm just waiting on dopster and Jesper to ok it.
14:59Chutt cool.
14:59johnp__ less signals etc. (ahem)
14:59_rkulagow_ chutt: is plextor sending you one of those ConvertX boxes?
14:59Chutt yeah
14:59Chutt someone needs to send me a pvr-usb2 :p
15:00Chutt their stuff looks like it'll be easy to integrate
15:01Chutt just be using the v4l2 stuff in NuppelVideoRecorder, but it'll grab compressed frames instead of uncompressed
15:02Chutt so, it'll be using the .nuv format still

15:06Captain_Murdo| some people will never get it... "You want people to use your neat product." no, not really, Chutt & devs are _letting_ them use it.

15:09Wildgoose Chutt: I think I have traced my constant segfaults to a checking done sometime on the 13th Feb
15:09Chutt 13th?
15:09Wildgoose However, looking through the list of checkins, the only thing which stands out as even vaguely possible to cause this is the scheduler.cpp change
15:09Wildgoose Can you please eyeball it and see if you think it could cause some bug like I am seeing?
15:10Wildgoose Date:13th Feb 05:35
15:10Chutt sure, one sec
15:10Wildgoose The only other code change is the one in avformatdecoder.cpp
15:10Chutt but that wouldn't crash the backend
15:10Wildgoose Agreed
15:10Chutt well, it _could_, but, it's unlikely
15:10Wildgoose Hence, the only thing I can see is the backend/scheduler.cpp change
15:11Wildgoose Well, I just built from 14th and it crashes within secs
15:11Wildgoose On the 13th code it is up and recording right now...
15:11Chutt well, if you can narrow it down more..
15:11Wildgoose I tried lots of other versions from 31st jan up to 14th feb before I found this bracket
15:11Wildgoose Can do. I will revert out that change and see if it's the one
15:11--- ---> NightMonkey [] has joined #mythtv
15:11Chutt jan 31st works fine, too?
15:11Wildgoose Will take a few hours because the evening viewing just started...
15:12Wildgoose Yep, everything before 14th Feb works fine
15:12_GeckoFiend Chutt I'll mkae a note of that change channel browse mode thing for when I'm going trhough the settings stuff on friday
15:12Wildgoose 14th Feb and 28th Feb both crash for me (haven't tried in between)
15:12Chutt geckofiend, cool
15:12Chutt no sense in trying in between
15:12Wildgoose agree
15:12Chutt i don't see anything obviously wrong in the scheduler.cpp change
15:12Wildgoose OK, next stop is to revert the change to scheduler.cpp and see what happens
15:12Chutt so, if you can verify that it _is_ that
15:12Wildgoose OK, will report back later
15:12Wildgoose Cheers
15:12Chutt cool, thanks
15:13--- <<-- zuralin [] has quit ("Leaving")
15:24Captain_Murdo| Chutt, only reason I didn't make browse mode the default when I added that feature was cause I figured somebody out there wouldn't like it so I made people turn it on to use it. :) I have it on as well (for the rare time I use LiveTV).
15:24Chutt yup
15:25Chutt that's cool.
15:25Captain_Murdo| love that feature on my DishNetwork receiver.
15:31_GeckoFiend I alwasy use the program guide for changing channels myself

23:27linagee what is it with strategically placed commercials in shows? soon PVRs won't work anymore.
23:29linagee formula is: "replace all common nouns with name brands." LOL
23:29Beirdo PVRs will work as long as we can record. and I'm sure you meant to be in #mythtv-users for this rant
23:30linagee Beirdo: oh, whoops. :)
23:30linagee Beirdo: what if it has some effect on the programmers though? ;-)
23:30Beirdo it doesn't particuarly :)
23:30linagee Beirdo: ??? mythtv programmers don't eat their own dogfood?
23:31Beirdo huh?
23:31linagee Beirdo: mythtv programmers don't use their own creation
23:31linagee ?
23:31Beirdo if this isn't about development issues, it's the wrong channel
23:32Beirdo as a general rule
23:32linagee Beirdo: what if it's a rant like, "microsoft windows home media edition" is the dumbest thing ever
