00:03Beirdo and he's back. Welcome back, Chutt
00:07rkulagow__ chutt: paying attention?
00:10Chutt no
00:11Chutt trying to get this air2pc to do something :p
00:11rkulagow__ ok, updating the howto for the plextor stuff. you have cycles tomorrow?
00:11Chutt i'll have cycles after 12:30
00:11rkulagow__ i get mine to consume electricity and make heat. your's any better?
00:11Beirdo I guess I'll ask about CVS some time after 12:30 then :)
00:23--- <<-- gr8nash-home [] has quit ()
00:32Chutt dopester, 717Mhz would be C111, right?
00:33Chutt my cable box shows cbs as transmitting on that, in the clear.
00:34dopester make sure your azap.conf matches 717
00:35dopester or whatever you decide to name it
00:36Chutt C111:717000000:QAM_256:0:0
00:37dopester yeah that would be the one
00:37Chutt still no lock
00:37Chutt card's not sharing any interrupts
00:38dopester bug me tomorrow.. im on the line between conciousness and sleeping... :)
00:38Chutt bah
00:39cmorgan heh
00:39Beirdo dopester is wussing out. too many mojitos
00:39dopester hehe
00:40dopester making mojitos in a pint glass is a bad idea thats all i can say :)
00:41cmorgan hah
00:41--- <--- Cromz [] has left #mythtv ("Kopete 0.9.2 :")
00:54Chutt ah well
00:54Chutt guess i'll try dvb-kernel cvs
00:54Chutt 'sgot a new driver for the card, i guess

01:35--- ---> Chutt [] has joined #mythtv
01:36Chutt there we go
01:36Chutt dopester, dvb-kernel cvs works.
01:37Chutt status 1f | signal f9d0 | snr d946 | ber 00007ff8 | unc 0000000d | FE_HAS_LOCK
01:38Chutt rkulagow, yo
01:38Chutt so, what'd you want to know about the plextor stuff?
01:39rkulagow__ does the new stuff work with the entire series, or just the TV tuner version.
01:39rkulagow__ driver comes from the plextor SDK?
01:39Chutt should be everything
01:40Chutt and the guy said he's working on adding support for some non-plextor usb thingies that use the same chipset
01:40Chutt yup, driver comes with the sdk
01:40Chutt it's just a simple make install
01:40rkulagow__ we pull divx, mpeg2, mpeg4?
01:40Chutt assuming your hotplug and everything works, etc
01:41Chutt we pull mpeg4 and stuff it into .nuv, like a bttv card
01:41rkulagow__ ok
01:44Chutt what kind of morons are they letting in to mit these days?
01:44rkulagow__ the blurb on the website says mpeg-2 as well; future support, or what?
01:46rkulagow__ chutt: i was talking to dopester a few days ago. those UNC errors in your paste above are the kiss of death; apparently it's doubtful that you're going to get a watchable stream, even if it does lock.
01:46Chutt it's there
01:46Chutt the thing is, the card doesn't do audio encoding
01:46Chutt so it doesn't produce a full stream
01:46Chutt if i wanted to do mpeg2, i'd have to mux it and everything
01:46Chutt and i'm too lazy
01:47Chutt so, no hd for me? :(
01:47rkulagow__ ok, i think this is what we talked about before. it's just straight pcm, and isn't already in a nice MPEG-2 stream like we get from the pvr-250's, correct?
01:48rkulagow__ not qam i don't think. i had to put my Air2PC card on a $20 radio shack special to pull in OTA. i'm now getting good signal for everything in my area; no unc errors, strong signal, etc.
01:48Chutt rkulagow, yeah
02:07Chutt huh
02:07Chutt something ate alsa
02:08Chutt probably because i disabled hotplug last boot
02:08rkulagow__ dopester: there?
02:08Chutt one last reboot...

20:03dopester probbably because you didnt read the documentation
20:03Matt nah, it's always like this :&)
20:03Matt there's something screwy about this box
20:03dopester then its the STUPID box
20:03Matt probably because it began life as slackware 8.1
20:04Matt and has been upgraded piecemeal since then
20:05cmorgan a great reason to install a distro from scratch imo
20:05cmorgan you can't have your software screwing things up all of the time
20:05Matt well that's pretty much the state this is in now
20:06Matt problem is things get upgraded sporadically
20:06cmorgan who upgrades them?
20:06Matt "Oh, I need gcc 3.3.3 - I suppose I should install that then"
20:06Matt I do
20:06cmorgan don't most distros do that stuff for you?
20:07dopester this is clearly a development issue :)
20:07Matt they do :&)
20:07cmorgan i mean it seems like a pita to have to download and build gcc
20:07Matt but not when you install everything yourself
20:07Matt actually, gcc ispretty straightforward
20:07cmorgan you choose to do that right?
20:07Matt I did, yes
20:07cmorgan which, while a huge waste of time, is your choice
20:07cmorgan heh
20:08Matt well, it's kinda force of habit
20:08Matt I've been doing things this way for so many years, it's hard to find a distro that does things the way I like

20:11cmorgan most of the problems i've had with myth are due to not having the right qt libraries
20:12Matt well that was odd
20:15Matt anyway, once again I need to track down why I'm having a mass of linking errors against qt
20:15cmorgan heh
20:15cmorgan yeah, the qt stuff is a real pita sometimes
20:16Matt I have hundreds of lines along the lines of
20:16Matt main.o(.text+0x7a): In function `main':
20:16Matt : undefined reference to `QApplication::QApplication[in-charge](int&, char**)'
20:17Matt and also
20:17Matt ../../libs/libmyth/ undefined reference to `QButtonGroup::qt_emit(int, QUObject*)'
20:17cmorgan what version of qt do you have installed?
20:17Matt lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 Dec 17 2003 /usr/lib/qt -> qt-x11-free-3.1.2/
20:18Matt hrm, I wonder
20:19cmorgan maybe mythtv needs a newer version?
20:19cmorgan i'm not sure what version is required atm
20:19Matt well, this is a good question
20:20Matt as the docs say "qt 3.1 is required and 3.0 might work but isn't supported"

21:42DSL_MTLCA how do i start the front end w/ logging enabled?

22:23HRearden anyone know if closed captions for OTA ATSC recordings over the DVB drivers is supposed to work
22:24GeckoFiend based off of your read of the code what's your opinion?
22:25HRearden I get the point, but there is a fairly limited base of people using DVB drivers for ATSC stuff, so I figured I'd ask here as well.
22:26Matt ah
22:26Matt found the problem
22:26Matt upgraded qt
22:26Bog_ what do people think of avermedia hardware? it work well with mythtv?
22:27Matt perhaps the docs are out of date now? :&)
22:27HRearden thor, you there? Anyone else experiment with the upnp protocol?
22:30--- ---> hadees [~hadees@hadees.sustaining.supporter.pdpc] has joined #mythtv
22:37dopester hrearden: captions are not supported right now
22:38dopester DVB, VBI or ATSC :)
22:39HRearden thx.
22:39--- <<-- Bog_ [] has quit ()
22:40dopester DTK started on an ATSC captions patch, but i don't know if it works or not..
22:40HRearden dopester, do you have any idea if there are still recorded. For instance, if I played them back on a Roku HD-1000 using their player? I haven't checked yet if their player supports them, but I am checking on that.
22:41dopester well the vbi captions are embeded in the video
22:41dopester and i THINK atsc captions are as well
22:41dopester DVB captions are a seperate PID for sure
22:41dopester when i say embeded in the video there is some 'data' field in the mpeg you just read ascii from i believe
22:43dopester its part of the digital tv code i don't really have very high on my list to look at, so if you want feel free to take a look ;)
22:43HRearden that's what I was reading about before. I did get the impression that it would likely be in multiple places.
22:43dopester you interested in atsc captions?
22:44HRearden Right now I'm working on trying to figure out how to get HDTV playback from a near-silent form factor. The only thing I've figured out is a Roku. My mom is losing here hearing and stops by sometimes to watch TV, so she likes the captions.
22:44dopester ahhh
22:45dopester my p4 shuttle is more pretty quiet
22:45dopester my fridge and tv are louder than it for sure
22:46dopester well take a look at the DTK stuff.. he got stuck with the presentation time since he said it was interleaved or something
22:46HRearden Kind of like the 1u-style form factor too. I have an Epia m-10000 now in a morex 2699 case. Not completely quite but at least it fits in with my other a/v stuff. The shuttle wouldn't I don't think.
22:46HRearden did he post that captions patch to the list?
22:46dopester maybe
22:46dopester its not working
22:46dopester but i think it might be a good starting point
22:46HRearden right, just wanted to look.
22:47dopester no idea if it should be just used for info, or if you can actually use the code
22:47dopester please only make it work with mpeg-ts files.. :)
22:47dopester i need more reasons to dump ps mode
22:48HRearden relative advantages/disadvantages there. I think I'm using PS mode at the moment which must have been the default.
22:49dopester yeah ps is the default
22:49dopester you can make ps from ts, but not vice versa
22:49dopester ts will strip language names from the stream, and also poses some issues for dvb captions
22:50HRearden ahh.
22:50dopester just need to spend some time in mpegts.c with ffmpeg and make it work half way decently
22:52dopester my first checkin will be to mpegts.c :)
22:53HRearden Yeah. this area of code is new to me - just feeling my way around it now. Worked in datadirect stuff before and other gui but never recording.
22:53dopester well just worry with the playback
22:54dopester if its not being recorded i can take care of that in like 10 minutes
22:54HRearden what are you using for HDTV output in the shuttle?
22:55dopester nvidia 6600
22:55dopester dvi->hdmi
22:55HRearden couldn
22:56HRearden arg. couldn't find the DTK patch. I'll look tomorrow. Later.

23:35dopester well good :)
23:36rkulagow__ my test box has a PVR150 that i'm testing along with the Air2PC card, so i've got two lineups. one has my comcast for the 150, one is the OTA stuff.
23:37rkulagow__ bound everything, did a channel scan, and picked up all the stations except for CBS, which is VHF. i can live with that.
