06:02<okolsi>as a effort to improve the internal player.. I think I'll put later tonight some details to a new ticket.. basically I have a H.264/QuickTime etc. movie that internal player cannot handle
06:02<okolsi>mplayer plays is okay.. ffplay plays the video but there are no sounds
06:02<justinh>think I can finally say 'morning' without fear of being cut off..

06:05<stuarta>justinh: morning
06:06<justinh>phoned in again today. apparently a lot of people have this nasty man-flu thing
06:06<Merlin83b2>This nasty "I don't fancy this half week thanks" man-flu?
06:10<justinh>nah. you don't see me coughing my guts up on IRC. just as well methinks
06:10<Merlin83b2>Yeah, I'm glad about that.
06:10<Merlin83b2>Get well soon, justinh.

06:19<gbee>think something's wrong with me, I've just recieved the 1Gb SoDIMM I ordered to double my laptops memory, but I'm reluctant to shutdown in order to install it
06:19<gbee>"justinh: think I can finally say 'morning' without fear of being cut off.." heh
06:19<stuarta>unless you are guarding a 1yr up time i'd upgrade
06:24<Merlin83b2>Do it even if you are. You must have ordered the RAM for a reason!
06:25<janneg>gbee: then you don't need the extra memory. If I had a free slot I would say give it to me :)
06:26<janneg>otoh I waited a week to replace the german layout keyboard with international layout
06:27<gbee>oh I really do need it ;) guess I'll get it installed now that I've run out of memory yet again ...
06:29|-|gbee [] has left #mythtv ["Gone"]
06:30<Merlin83b2>Quick, now he's gone we can talk about him.
06:39<rooaus>Anyone know where the Minimalist-Wide icons came from?
06:44<stuarta>who or where?
06:44<stuarta>you can get the who from svn i reckon
06:45<rooaus>I was looking to fix a couple of the missing buttons and was hoping they may have come from a icon library :)
06:45<stuarta>start drawing
06:45<rooaus>jdonovan committed the theme and his website is no longer available.
06:47|-|gbee [] has joined #mythtv
06:48<stuarta>ah jonny nemonic is back
06:49<gbee>hopefully I can now avoid living in swap, especially since this drive is so slow that it brought everything to a standstill
06:50<rooaus>stuarta: I don't use minimalist and can't draw, so there is not much chance of me drawing them. Just thought some xml love pre 0.21 might be nice.

06:54<gbee>rooaus: missing icons in minimalist?
06:57<rooaus>gbee: Yeah, I have added a couple that were available but not set and wondered if anyone knew if they were originally from a library or custom drawn.
06:57<gbee>I think JSD created minimalist and I've not seen him for over a year
06:59<gbee>I know that doesn't answer your question ;)
06:59<rooaus>his website (listed in the svn log) is not longer up, I guess could try an email or something. oh well
07:03<rooaus>I will post the patch to a ticket anyway I guess, fixed a couple things anyway.

07:42<stuarta>heh. Mem: 4046980k total, 3999568k used, 47412k free, 464000k buffers 2414212k cached

07:44<stuarta>that last one's the dev box
07:49<clever>Mem: 125572k total, 122856k used, 2716k free, 65380k buffers
07:49<clever>my router
07:49<clever>the buffer usage slowly climbs over several days
07:50<stuarta>always will
07:50<clever>but the buffer usage i beleive is only for block devices which are open
07:50<clever>and i cant think of what block devices may stay open so long
07:51<stuarta>i'm sure it's used for more than just that
07:51<clever>the cached part i beleive is for open files
07:51<stuarta>not necessarily open, recently used
07:51<clever>but a call to updatedb seems to use some buffer ram posibly between the fs driver and the block devices
07:54<gbee>well it's climbing, just 15Mb free *sigh*, at least it should behave a lot better than it did with just 1Gb
07:55<clever>my router sits with maybe 100mb free at first
07:55<clever>and it slowly gets eaten by cached and buffered

08:18<justinh>IIRC I need to do some hacking on pooptube-wide to make it work with the latest mythvideo
08:23|-|okolsi [n=mythtv@] has quit [Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)]
08:45<gbee>does the OSD menu accept mouse clicks?
08:45<clever>some windows can take clicks
08:46<clever>and i think draging the mouse in certain paterns can be bound to a command
08:46<gbee>yeah, but I'm wondering about the OSD in particular
08:46<clever>for if you had a touch panel
08:47|-|Puh [] has joined #mythtv
08:47<gbee>I'd test it here but I've got a patch in my tree which intercepts mouse clicks and binds them to keypresses, so I'd have to revert that first
08:47<clever>id like to be able to bind a key to middle click
08:47<clever>for all apps
08:48<clever>'middle' click isnt easy on this laptop
08:51<rooaus>gbee: I don't think so, just tested here using r15270 on laptop.
08:52<clever>the buttons and text boxes seem to reply to the mouse
08:52<clever>probly because they are qt based
08:53<clever>mythui may spread that to more areas

09:25<gbee>I hate estimating hours on a project :/
09:26<stuarta>work out a reasonable time and triple it
09:36<gbee>I want to know where the snow I was promised is
09:36[~]justinh has seen snow today
09:37<janneg>I've seen snow too but it is from tuesday
09:37<Merlin83b2>Yeah, we had a tiny amount, certainly not enough to settle.
09:37<gbee>justinh: guess it's all being dumped on the high ground to the west of here then
09:38<stuarta>not even a single snowflake here :(
09:38<justinh>what little we had did lie on the ground though. hate to think about the traffic chaos that ensued.. "arghhH! snow!! <swerve>"
09:39<Merlin83b2>It looked pretty bad on the news.
09:39<Merlin83b2>No problem for areas where people have chains, but enough to make non snowy countried have issues.
09:39<justinh>Merlin83b2: Southerners!
09:39<gbee>stuarta: according to BBC weather it's snowing in London right now ;)
09:40<justinh>first time I ever drove in snow, at least 4 inches on the roads & I managed to get up a big hill & get to work
09:40<Merlin83b2>The pictures were on North Yorkshire.
09:40<stuarta>sadly i'm at the office
09:40<Merlin83b2>4 inches is fine. It's the slushy rubbish that affects driving :)
09:41<Merlin83b2>Enough of this nickname nonsense, time to lose the 2...
09:41|-|Merlin83b2 changed nick to Merlin83b
09:52<jams>rooaus- the icons are from a library, but i beleive they were color modified.
09:52<jams>rooaus- the above statement is in reference to your minimalist wide question.
09:53<rooaus>jams: Thanks.
09:54<jams>don't ask which icon set, cause i don't remember =)
09:57<rooaus>I figured you would have said if you did remember :)

10:22<justinh>if I knew which libraries all the themes with missing icons used, they'd already be fixed
10:23<justinh>even put out an appeal. no reponse whatsoever
10:25<gbee>no READMEs?
10:26<justinh>nothing about icons in mythcenter
10:26<justinh>nothing in blue either
10:27<justinh>G.A.N.T - I started getting some new icons together. can't remember what I committed though
10:28<justinh>anybody could have slapped 'icons' in place of the missing ones but I didn't opt for just anything if it didn't match the house style
10:29<justinh>though having looked at some of the icons again maybe replacing a lot of them is a better option
10:30|-|johnp__ [] has joined #mythtv
10:31<justinh>some really good GPL icons on - pity so many of them are so esoteric
10:31<gbee>one last bug to fix in this icon import patch and I'm just waiting on xris to tell me if it's a server side issue, or one with the client
10:32<justinh>could even be an excuse to redo a lot of the watermark/button icons - to get higher res verions
10:33<johnp__>stuarta, you keeping up with the patches on #4327 ? (up to 8 now)
10:33<stuarta>i'm running 6.
10:34<stuarta>haven't had a chance to put the later ones in yet
10:34<gbee>justinh: or ditch the themes, at least the threat of ditching themes which are missing images might encourage people to supply images or even the original authors to step forward
10:34<justinh>who wants to be the messenger for that?
10:35|-|MrGandalf [] has joined #mythtv
10:35<justinh>taste issues aside, maybe go for the ones which only change menus first :P
10:35<justinh>call that a theme? ;)
10:36<MrGandalf>wow, someone's working hard on patches today..
10:37<justinh>rooaus: happen to have a list of missing icons?
10:38<justinh>nm. I have one
10:38<rooaus>justinh: No, maybe jams(?) menu walking screen shot script might help there?
10:39<gbee>justinh: I don't think you can call those themes anymore, not with the standard of themes now being released, it's embarassing to still be shipping those as official themes
10:40<GreyFoxx>MrGandalf: I think the push is one with 0.21 nearing :)
10:40<MrGandalf>that's a good thing
10:40<justinh>G.A.N.T is too popular
10:41<justinh>actually so is mythcenter
10:42<justinh>I don't know why but somehow nuvola icons are sticking out in my mind
10:42<MrGandalf>you should see a doctor for that
10:43<justinh>aye they look familiar :)
10:45<janneg>MrGandalf: can you test if #4043 is fixed?
10:45<MrGandalf>yeah, but not just yet.. later today
10:45<janneg>sure, thanks
10:46<janneg>GreyFoxx: is the upnp brokeness in trunk fixed?
10:46<justinh>rooaus: seems as though nuvola (as greyscales) are what minimalist-wide uses too
10:46<MrGandalf>lemme look at the patch again.. I remember the problem being that the frontend would get the update but the backend didn't
10:47<GreyFoxx>janneg: since Anduins last patches I haven't had a single crash, and I've tried to make it happen
10:47<MrGandalf>also, there's a gotcha
10:48<GreyFoxx>janneg: before his last patch I could make mythtv-setup and such segfault at boot 30% of the time, since then I've tried maybe 20 times with no crashes
10:48<rooaus>justinh: Thanks, I just downloaded the tarball. I see what you mean.
10:49<justinh>dunno where they got the 'tv' icon though.. it's not nuvola
10:49<janneg>GreyFoxx: ok, I'll start merging
10:50<justinh>and I think the overall look could be improved by a) redrawing the menu select bar and b) doing away with the awful shadow in the watermarks
10:51<MrGandalf>janneg: Looking at the code, I'd have to say no
10:51<GreyFoxx>well, I also trackdown 1 of my last 2 weird playback glitches
10:51<GreyFoxx>I was getting a "greenline" at the bottom of some videos
10:51<MrGandalf>janneg: hold on, forgot to check mythfrontend/backend code..
10:52<GreyFoxx>turns out that if you don't have a value in your databsae specifically stating a 0% horiz and or 0% veritcal under/overscan percentage the videooutbase code would assume 5% scaling
10:52<GreyFoxx>and for some reason this one frontend had no values for those in the database
10:52<GreyFoxx>myth was scaling it and on some content something was off
10:52<MrGandalf>janneg: The only place UpdateRecGroup() get called is in TV::PromptRecGroupPassword(), so no, that patch doesn't fix it.
10:53<GreyFoxx>Why the default isn't 0% I don't know
10:53<GreyFoxx>It's 0% on the gui menu, but not the code that reads from the db
10:55|-|jams [] has quit ["Leaving"]
10:58|-|crichardson [n=crichard@] has quit ["changing servers"]
10:58<gbee>GreyFoxx: if it helps, 5% is the figure often cited for overscan
10:59|-|crichardson [n=crichard@] has joined #mythtv
10:59<gbee>whoever wrote the code probably assumed that by default people would want 5% overscan to hide the rough edges of the video
11:00<GreyFoxx>But that assumes their driver/X settings aren't already overscanning
11:00<GreyFoxx>and even that I cuold handle if it was logged or matched the default in the setup menu for that values in question :)
11:00|-|dekarl [] has joined #mythtv
11:00<gbee>yeah, it's a bad assumption, but I can see the reasoning behind the figure of 5%
11:00<GreyFoxx>makes sense yeah

11:04|-|dekarl-needs-tru [] has quit [Read error: 60 (Operation timed out)]
11:06<GreyFoxx>I'm going to make the code defaults match the setup menu default values. IF someone wants it changed they can alter it later. But the two should match
11:09|-|jgarvey [] has joined #mythtv
11:12|-|reynaldo [] has joined #mythtv
11:14<rooaus>GreyFoxx: There is a ApplySnapToVideoRect() to avoid scaling in either dimension if the overscan value is close (within 5%).
11:18<GreyFoxx>Yeah but only if the value is less than 0.05. So if you never pass those setup menus and myth never explicitly puts 0's in to the database the current code defaults to 0.05 which ends up scaling it
11:20<GreyFoxx>which for some reason or another causes me to get a green line on the bottom of some videos and some slight "shifting" of the layers of the image
11:22[~]jams hands GreyFoxx some glass cleaner

11:38<justinh>shite. big big mess here :(
11:38<MrGandalf>janneg: The problem the second patch in that ticket fixes is when r is pressed on the frontend, and the db is updated, the backend is never notified of the change. When the frontend then queries the backend for recordings, it returns an old status
11:39<MrGandalf>janneg: the first patch in that ticket also fixed the issue but presents another bug where a LiveTV recording never gets changed to Default - as in when you're asked in LiveTV if you want to let something record or not.

11:56<gbee>janneg: are those Nova-T 500 bugs now fixed in a released kernel?
11:58<janneg>gbee: no, but I see them now less than once in a month
11:58<janneg>if you count rc kernels as released
11:58<gbee>I do
11:58<gbee>and only because I can't be bothered to build/install the driver from hg
11:59<gbee>two days after enabling active scanning I've seen it happen again, what's unusual is that it didn't correct itself
12:00<gbee>it's happened without active scanning but in those cases the driver sorted itself out and I only missed part of a recording
12:01<gbee>this is with 2.6.23, let me grab the release candidate of 24
12:03|-|okolsi [n=mythtv@] has joined #mythtv
12:03<janneg>gbee: it get fixed because you had with the "disable active scanning" patch "open on demand" activated
12:04<janneg>it "fixes" itself only if none of the device nodes of the device are open
12:04<gbee>shouldn't restarting the backend work? it didn't in this case
12:05<janneg>yes, that should work too
12:06<janneg>GreyFoxx: multirec is merged
12:10<janneg>not to trunk, but changesets up to 15296 are now in multirec
12:10<janneg>which excludes your fix
12:10<gbee>janneg: is there a timeline for merging to trunk?
12:11|-|catinpan [] has joined #mythtv
12:13<janneg>nothing except soon. daniel is working on a single fix for bruce and I have a couple of things I want to fix
12:14<janneg>but those are rather unimportant and could be fixed after the merge
12:19<GreyFoxx>janneg: Mind if I add 15297 to multirec ?:)
12:20<GreyFoxx>Though I suppose it doesn't really matter. It's a 2 line patch I can keep doing on my own :)
12:21|-|okolsi [n=mythtv@] has quit [Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)]
12:26<janneg>GreyFoxx: I've done it. a merge for a single commit looks strange but who cares
12:31<GreyFoxx>What do you think about increasing the Max Recordings limit in multirec from 5 to 8 or 10? I've been using mine as 8 (and regularly doing 8 at a time) since last August/Sept when I switched over
12:36<xris>janneg: I hear you have a patch for the pixmap cpu use bug?
12:37|-|_crichardson [n=crichard@] has joined #mythtv
12:41<janneg>xris: no, my plan of just forking the preview generating thread didn't work out. the new process is easily deadlocked
12:41<gbee>xris: not sure if I mentioned this the other night, but lyngsat has reorganised, a bunch of icons are no longer where they used to be
12:41<xris>guess I have to re-scan
12:41<xris>rescanning now
12:42<xris>really need to just set that up on a weekly cron or something
12:42|-|gnome42 [] has joined #mythtv
12:42<xris>actually... I need to get in touch with them as part of SD...
12:42<gbee>xris: thanks
12:42<xris>we're hoping that we could actually license the art on our own directly from the stations..
12:42<xris>basically turn lyngsat "legit"
12:43<GreyFoxx>that'd be nice
12:43<janneg>I see two options: 1. reorganize the preview generation to avoid locks (no mythcontext access, db access, ...)
12:43<MrGandalf>janneg: is that the info you needed?
12:44<janneg>or 2: write a small application which generates only a png and gets all neccesary pararameters on command line
12:44<janneg>MrGandalf: yes, thanks
12:45<janneg>I don't know if 1. is feasible
12:45<GreyFoxx>janneg: #2 sounds simplest
12:46<MrGandalf>couldn't the preview generation take place in the ringbuffer? It already knows the filename and how much is written..
12:46<janneg>but is not as efficient as 1.
12:46<xris>janneg: one thing Captain_Murdoch and I were hoping to get out of this was to also pull some info about the recording during preview generation... resolution/aspect/etc to store in the db for nuvexport and mythweb flv..
12:46<gbee>2 also sounds like something that could then be used in mythvideo etc

12:47<xris>what exactly happened that broke the preview generation before?

12:49<janneg>no, the simple application I have on my mind should only link to libav*
12:49<gbee>xris: does the lyngsat scanning script remove icons that are no longer available or which have moved?
12:49<xris>marks them as deprecated
12:49<xris>not actually sure what *that* does, though. heh
12:50<janneg>xris: no if we link against myth libraries we would have the same problem we have now with the seperate backend process creating the previews

13:00<xris>gbee: not actually sure how long it takes. 20 mins, maybe... it's done now, but looks like their "corp" pages have changed format somehow so all of the corp (corporation logos) and radio stuff didn't get found

13:20<okolsi>there might be some video issues, but also the audio codec cannot be found

13:21<okolsi>from the logs: "AFD: No codec for stream index 0, type(Audio) id(AAC:86018)"
13:21<xris>janneg: this isn't "expensive"... it uses up 100% cpu and then hangs like that

14:37<laga>i'm talking about ./mythvideo/mythvideo/theme-wide/images/mv-sel.png and mythtv/themes/default-wide/mv-sel.png
14:38<justinh>I think I know what might be quicker for me. just go through all the dirs in 'themes' like a dose of salts
14:38<Anduin>laga: Yes, it already did it for 4:3, what are you seeing?
14:38<Anduin>laga: all a consequence of having a slightly larger movies selection dialog for wide
14:41<Anduin>and yes, if there is a separate process that can take a list of input files with params for preview generation I'd add that to MythVideo somewhat quickly.
14:41<laga>Anduin: is it really intended that $stuff in mythvideo overwrites $stuff in mythtv?

14:44<Anduin>laga: I see what you mean, no, all non-shared MythVideo images should be in mythplugins/mythvideo
14:45<laga>that's somewhat annoying because it breaks packages. if mv-sel.png is in two packages (and is supposed to be put in the same directory) you have dpkg screaming bloody murder in no time

18:44<skyphyr>hi all, I asked on the users channel but didn't get an answer (don't kill me yet - I can code). I was trying to figure out if the upnp functionality on mythtv provides the available channels so they can be browsed then streamed live from the dvb card (ideally with timeshifting as well)? If not would the mythtv architecture allow for this? Perhaps using something like a fifo to stream to from the dvb card and from to the upnp
18:45<xris>skyphyr: still a -users question.. most of us hang out there, too, and if you didn't get an answer, people either don't know or didn't see you ask.

18:50|-|gandalfcome [] has joined #mythtv
18:55<gbee>xris: making a change to the way upnp preview image stuff works, might cut down on backend load
18:57<gbee>rather than calling the preview generator to create different sizes, it will use the existing 320x240 image (if it exists) and rescale it
18:58<gbee>the preview generator is only used if no default preview image exists
18:58<xris>the default images are much smaller than 320x240 aren't they?
18:59<gbee>xris: no, I increased the default image size a couple of weeks back
18:59<gbee>made for better looking preview images at HD resolutions
19:00<gbee>if 320x240 is too small I can increase it further, makes little difference as far as the frontend is concerned
19:02<xris>320x240 is way bigger than mythweb uses, so that's not too bad
19:03<gbee>I could modify it further so if you request something bigger than 320x240 it will generate a new image, but I figure this should work well for now
19:04<gbee>at the same time I'm fixing the bug in #3217

22:58<kormoc>hachi, the machine timezones should be set to their local time, as unix time stamps when converted to local time will always work out correctly
22:59<kormoc>and if your mysql server and your mythbox are in different time zones, as Chutt said, that's a weird unsupported setup
22:59<hachi>could've been supported if localization was done properly
22:59<Chutt>so fix it.

22:59<Chutt>for what?
23:00<hachi>any of the time stuff
23:00<hachi>I don't see any anywhere for mythtv
23:00<Chutt>what documentation would you want?
23:00<hachi>tz problems are unmentioned on the wiki, or in the docs
23:00<Chutt>"run everything in the same timezone"?
23:00<Chutt>because no one does otherwise :p
23:00<hachi>every company I've ever worked for ran their server farms in UTC
23:01<kormoc>that seems rather stupid when the entire point of unix time stamps is to allow conversion on the fly
23:01<hachi>because where the machine physically sits doesn't matter, what matters is where the user is sitting
23:01<kormoc>hence the setting of the correct local time zone and using unix time stamps
