00:14dopester chutt: if some code needs to be removed/changed for use in myth in libavformat whats the best way to make synching with ffmpeg easy for you?
00:25Chutt just send a patch to it
00:25dopester to ffmpeg?
00:25Chutt the ts parser is already different enough to make merging difficult
00:25Chutt naw, to me
00:25dopester ok fair enough
00:26dopester is the av_remove_stream stuff part of the ac3 aussie craziness?
00:26Chutt yup
00:26dopester hehe found a HUGE bug with it
00:26dopester :)
00:26dopester only really shows up in atsc land though
00:27dopester well let me keep plugging away :)
00:27hadees Chutt, okay i know you don't think i can do this but i figured out my problem, kind of along your lines, so how do i get the x11 window into QPainter, am i supposed to copy every frame?
00:31Chutt you don't
00:31Chutt please, _look_ at the existing vis plugins
00:32Chutt goom, or synaesthesia
00:32Chutt neither of them has _anything_ to do with qt
00:32Chutt but, <gasp> they're drawing in a qt widget
00:32Chutt it's magic!
00:32Chutt can't be done!
00:33--- <<-- mtjs [~goodusern@] has quit (Remote closed the connection)
00:33Chutt there's absolutely _no_ qt code in mythgoom.cpp
00:33Chutt for instance
00:34dopester chutt: when switching from pcm -> ac3 feeds using spdif i get some nasty noise before the ac3 header hits my reciever.. should i drop audio packets until i get a header in mpegts or put it someplace else?
00:35Chutt either way
00:35Chutt if it'd happen with a ps, then drop it in the avformatdecoder class
00:35Chutt or any other format
00:35Chutt ie., keep code to deal with common problems out of specific code
00:35Chutt and put it in the common place =)
00:36dopester yeah thats why i was asking.. sounds like a common place is a better idea.. :)
00:39* thor_ is suddenly humming "common people"
00:43dopester how about shiny happy people
00:43thor_ more common
01:01--- ---> rafaMEX [~rafaMEX@] has joined #mythtv
01:07Chutt got the plextor thingie working in myth.
01:07Chutt 20 minutes. =)
01:09Captain_Murdo| cool
01:09Chutt guess i should give it its own setup screen and stuff, though
01:09thor_ recorded anything ?
01:10thor_ just wondering about the quality ...
01:10Chutt eh, it's kinda crappy
01:10thor_ damn
01:10Chutt but, it may be the brightness and stuff
01:10Chutt can't adjust those yet
01:10Chutt in fact, a lot of the image quality's probably that
01:10Chutt lemme bump up the bitrate a bit and see..
01:10thor_ set the bitrate yet?
01:10thor_ heh, nm
01:11Chutt yeah, 2200kbps
01:11Chutt i hardcoded a default
01:13thor_ and you think that's too low? for 640ish by 480ish?
01:13* thor_ is scratching on the back of an enveloppe
01:14dopester mpeg4?
01:15thor_ as I understand it
01:15Chutt naw, it's about what it should be for 640x480
01:15Chutt for good quality
01:15Chutt well, to reproduce crappy ntsc without going to shit =)
01:15thor_ heh
01:16Chutt dopester, hey, btw, if i'm running 2.6.12-rc1, what dvb patches do i need in the kernel for the air2pc?
01:16thor_ I would have guessed about 1200, but I'm probably used to thinking about ffmpeg with hq on from a vob source
01:16dopester get dvb-kernel cvs
01:17dopester that should sync with the "testing" kernels
01:17Chutt bah
01:17dopester run the makelinks script in dvb-kernel
01:17Chutt i want to run mainline
01:17dopester actually 2.6.12 might have it all
01:17dopester let me check
01:17dopester sorry thats a stock answer i give anymore.. brain wasn't fully engaged..
01:18dopester yeah its all in there in 2.6.12-rc1
01:18dopester so you don't need anything else
01:18Chutt excellent
01:18dopester sorry
01:18Chutt i already had to deal with some debian utter stupidity in 2.6.10
01:19dopester one change in siparser.cpp though that might help get more channels
01:19Chutt i don't like switching kernels often :p
01:19dopester i keep having to with all this dvb stuff
01:19Chutt i should be around tomorrow night to apply patches
01:19dopester i need to get a gun permit to give my hd2k what it deserves :)
01:19Chutt heh
01:19Chutt oh yeah, i was going to give you cvs write access
01:19Chutt and beirdo for nuvexport
01:19dopester anyone who uses a bt8xx card for ts stuff should be shot
01:20dopester track 2 independent cvs sources for 6 months before they get into a kernel.. grr..
01:20Beirdo Cool
01:20Beirdo I was wondering what had come of that
01:21Chutt thor, actually, this looks pretty decent
01:21Chutt at 4400 =)
01:21Chutt kbps
01:21thor_ heh
01:21dopester hehe just use mpeg2 then.. :)
01:21thor_ mpeg4 at mpeg2 bitrates, yay
01:21thor_ heh, nm
01:21dopester beatcha to it there thor :)
01:22thor_ I really need to learn to touch type
01:22Chutt well it does mpeg1/2/4
01:22Chutt and mjpeg
01:22dopester no wmv? :)
01:23thor_ is there a DivX logo on it (they licensed DivX codec for mpeg4)?
01:23Chutt no logo
01:23thor_ hmmmm
01:25dopester damn no wonder there are "silent" streams for the aussie ac3 wonder
01:32--- <<-- riksta [] has quit (SendQ exceeded)
01:40Chutt there
01:40Chutt all the setup junk's done
01:40Chutt almost ready to check this in
01:48dopester oooo this is a dtk thing i think actually..
01:49Chutt he's getting cvs access too
01:49Chutt you two can duke it out
01:49dopester great.. :)
01:49dopester well he just got married and i just became single.. we'll see who has more time to outdo the other :)
01:50Chutt hah
01:51dopester "honey can you get off the computer.. i want a coffee from that place down the street.. ".. heheh
01:54--- <--- rafaMEX [~rafaMEX@] has left #mythtv ("(¬.¬)__.!.")
01:54Chutt there, all done
01:54Chutt maybe an hour's worth of work, and a lot of that was compiling
01:55thor_ heh
01:55thor_ well then, how about libmythui update before bed?
01:56Chutt for what?
01:56hadees okay so i don't use QPainter and the other plugins use SDL, but there doesn't seem like a good way to get an existing x11 into sdl
01:57Chutt an existing x11 what into sdl?
01:57hadees x11 window pointer
01:57Chutt what?
01:57Chutt honestly
01:57hadees x window pointer
01:58Chutt pick a project better suited for your skill level
01:58Chutt char SDL_windowhack[32];
01:58Chutt sprintf(SDL_windowhack, "%ld", winid);
01:58Chutt setenv("SDL_WINDOWID", SDL_windowhack, 1);
01:58Chutt what the fuck did you think that was for?
01:58Chutt just for fun?
01:59thor_ ahhh, and I always thought that was Windo Whack
02:04hadees i saw that, frankly i didn't think it could be that simple
02:04hadees thank you though
02:05Chutt how much harder could it be?
02:05hadees if you do that do i need to even update anything
02:05Chutt update what?
02:06hadees i mean the i guess i don't really need the other functions in VisualBase to do anything
02:06hadees well besides resize
02:07Chutt updating what?
02:07Chutt you still want to do something with the data in the process() function
02:07Chutt and the draw() function's there if you want to be triggered to draw or not
02:07Chutt you don't have to pay attention to it, of course.
02:09hadees Chutt, thanks you have been a big help

11:54camilo Hi, can someone help? Why some boards need the skip_btaudio of the NuppelVideoRecorder to true? I see that if it\xB4s false and I have a audio channel I set the volume using the VIDIOCGAUDIO. I don\xB4t understood the reason of the skip_btaudio?
11:57Captain_Murdo| search for skipbtaudio in videosource.cpp and it will explain.

12:02camilo i have a pixelview card. the mythtv only works with this option set. why they have to leave the audio volume left alone? any hint?
12:02camilo this card don\xB4t look to have the dsp.
12:03Captain_Murdo| maybe it's a cheap card like the one mentioned in the setting. :)
12:03camilo sure it is.
12:03Captain_Murdo| don't know really, didn't write that code, just figured it might help explain.
12:04camilo oh. thanks.

12:35Captain_Murdo| "does myth work with an AverMedia TV card?" -> "which card? they have lots" -> "the one with stereo sound"
12:36stoffel_ hehe
12:46n00bzilla What limitations are there for channels in the 200-600 range?
12:49Captain_Murdo| sounds like something a person in #mythtv-users might know.
12:50n00bzilla I highly doubt that, as most of them are in awe that there are channels in that range
12:51Captain_Murdo| any DVB or US ATSC/HDTV user should have them that high.
12:51n00bzilla Guess I'll ask my questions there till they get answered.
12:54dopester there are no limitations the channel number has nothing to do with the technolgoy
12:54dopester and that is a -users question
12:57n00bzilla K, everything I read says "1-128"
12:58n00bzilla So that's why I was wondering.
12:59n00bzilla Is there any development going into Cable-Card?

21:08Chutt baylink, where's my wiki conversion?
21:08Chutt :p
21:08hadees Chutt, yeah so how should I take an existing x11 window and put it inside the vis buffer
21:09hadees Chutt, i found this,
21:09Chutt you don't
21:09hadees Composite extension
21:10Chutt that has nothing to do with reparenting windows
21:11hadees no but it would let me put the window into the vis buffer, am i supposed to just reparent a window for the vis?
21:11hadees well for mine
21:13Chutt or find a way to tell it where to draw like sdl can.
21:15hadees Chutt, i can reparent it i just thought i had to either use sdl or QPainter
21:18Chutt shouldn't have to
22:03Baylink Oh. Hi. :-)
22:03Baylink Almost done, actually; read your mail lately?
22:04Baylink (and my speakers have batteries, too; wonder why that didn't beep...)
22:04Chutt won't what you guys are doing lose all the change history?
22:05Baylink He says he thinks that's convertible too, though maybe not quite as easily...
22:05Baylink I think it may be time to call a quick IRC meeting...
22:06Chutt <shrug>
22:06Chutt whatever you guys want
22:06Chutt you want a db backup?
22:06Baylink But... Real Soon Now. :-)
22:06Baylink Yeah, probably not a bad idea. You need a command line?
22:07Chutt no
22:07Baylink Naw; I guess you wouldn't. Silly me.
22:08Chutt heh
22:08Chutt perhaps not
22:08Chutt something's wonky on there
22:08Chutt there's nothing important on the wiki, though
22:08Chutt so if i have to reinitialize it, no harm done
